Circuit Court Judge Neil Thomas is set to rule Monday morning on the issue of the wording on the referendum on the Domestic Partners Benefits ordinance.
Attorneys, who gave arguments on Thursday, were told to be in court at 8 a.m.
The Election Commission has called an emergency meeting at the County Courthouse at the same time.
The election panel ruled earlier that the ballot would contain the version prepared by the petitioners, who are seeking to overturn the ordinance that would give benefits to same-sex and live-in partners of city employees. That version has been approved by state election officials.
Lt. Corliss Cooper and her partner filed suit, saying there should be a longer version drafted by the city. The City Council filed a similar suit wanting the city version.
