Gov. Rick Snyder says the approval of a deal between the state and the city of Detroit is a "positive opportunity" for the city and the entire state of Michigan.

The Detroit City Council has put off a vote while continuing to debate a proposed consent agreement between the city and Gov. Rick Snyder.

A federal judge is telling lawyers to return to court Tuesday in a dispute over the state's likely veto of contract concessions approved by Detroit city workers.

Detroit's chief federal prosecutor says her office wouldn't do anything differently in the investigation of a Michigan militia, despite losing virtually all of the case after a six-week trial.

Major League Baseball expanded its playoff format to 10 teams Friday, adding a second wild-card in each league.

The decision establishes a new one-game, wild-card round in each league between the teams with the best records who are not division winners, meaning a third-place team could win the World Series.

This is the only change in baseball's playoff structure since the 1995 season, when wild-card teams were first added.
