Detroit Judge’s Expert Says Voters Pose Recovery Risk

Detroit’s voters pose a threat to the success of a $7 billion debt-cutting plan, according to Marti Kopacz, the financial expert hired by the federal judge overseeing the city’s historic bankruptcy.

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Steven Rhodes appointed Kopacz to write a report on whether the city’s proposal and its 10-year financial projections were reasonable. She agreed that they were, and testified at a two-month trial on the feasibility of the plan, which the judge approved yesterday.
