Snyder to face questions under oath about Detroit bankruptcy filing [View all]

Source: Detroit News

Detroit — Gov. Rick Snyder agreed Tuesday to face questions under oath about why he authorized a Detroit bankruptcy under terms of a deal that slows the pace of the biggest Chapter 9 filing in U.S. history.

The deal was hatched on the sidelines of a bankruptcy hearing Tuesday after U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Steven Rhodes grilled a state lawyer about a last-ditch attempt to shield Snyder and members of the administration from being deposed in the case.

The forthcoming depositions mark a victory for city unions that are trying to prove the city negotiated in bad faith before filing bankruptcy July 18. Snyder must sit for a three-hour deposition on an as yet unscheduled date, under terms brokered Tuesday.

“This was a very important day for us to get access to the governor,” said attorney Sharon Levine of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Council 25, the city’s largest union. “It is important to understand the motives behind the filing. Transparency is critical here.”
