TORONTO - Toronto Mayor Rob Ford's political future is now in the hands of three judges.

The mayor of Canada's largest city vowed Monday to keep "fighting for the taxpayers" as he awaits the ruling in his appeal of a judge's decision to toss him from office for violating the municipal Conflict of Interest Act during a Feb. 2012 council meeting.

Last November, a judge ordered Ford removed from office for taking part in a vote that he repay $3,150 raised for his football charity. The ruling was stayed, pending the outcome of the appeal.

The panel of justices that heard Ford's appeal did not provide a date for the release of their judgement.
