Detroit’s fight begins today – – in bankruptcy court

For months, both sides have been fighting a war of “words” in the media stating their position about whether Detroit’s bankruptcy should be allowed to proceed. Detroit is the largest public bankruptcy in U.S. history and it took over the bankruptcy spotlight in the news even before the city’s emergency manager and his legal team filed the bankruptcy petition.  Beginning today, Bankruptcy Judge Rhodes will hear testimony and arguments from both sides on the eligibility question.  The trial is expected to last several days.
