Detroit Awaits Ruling on Bankruptcy Eligibility as Trial Ends

Detroit’s bankruptcy trial ended yesterday without a ruling from the judge on whether the city can remain under court protection, where creditors are limited in what they can do to challenge the city’s restructuring process.

Following more than eight hours of arguments by nine lawyers in federal court in Detroit, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Steven Rhodes said he will issue a ruling after the city and its opponents file legal briefs next week about how labor law may affect his decision.
