Bobb wants a Wayne Circuit Court judge to immediately rescind Gueyser's appointment and order the board to follow his executive orders. Bobb, appointed to a one-year term by the governor, is represented by Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox's office. After his appointment, Bobb issued an order assuming fiscal control over the district, including all personnel actions.-
