NAACP overruled by Detroit bankruptcy judge

In the ongoing Detroit bankruptcy battle, the appointment of an emergency manager for Detroit was again in the spotlight this week. Bankruptcy Judge Steven Rhodes denied a motion by the NAACP to pursue a lawsuit involving the constitutionality of the law that allows for the appointment of emergency managers.  The NAACP alleged in court that the emergency manager law violates equal protection and voting rights.  Judge Rhodes questioned whether this suit was truly about the law or only about the appointment of Orr as Detroit’s emergency manager and denied the NAACPs request.
