Testimony wrapped up Wednesday in the court fight over an attempt to recall Omaha Mayor Jim Suttle. Judge Peter Bataillon is expected to announce his decision by 1:30 p.m. Thursday.

Douglas County elections workers verified 28,720 of the petition signatures submitted, enough to force a vote. But Suttle is asking the judge to throw out the petition, saying the group that gathered signatures committed fraud.

A recall vote has been scheduled for January 25th. Suttle took office in 2009 and has said he won't resign.
