Detroit Ch. 9 Eligibility Objections Set For October
By Stewart Bishop
Law360, New York (September 13, 2013, 4:45 PM ET) -- A Michigan federal judge on Thursday said he has received 110 timely objections from unions, retirees and others to Detroit's bid for Chapter 9 protection and has scheduled two days of oral arguments in October to address those that raise legal issues.
U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Steven Rhodes said the court will hear arguments over a host of objections that only appear to turn on legal concerns on Oct. 15 and 16, including those that challenge Detroit emergency manager Kevyn Orr’s authority.
