I wonder what will happen there now with police and other emergency response units.
Maybe they will try out marchal law?
A Michigan Circuit Court Judge ruled Friday that Detroit's bankruptcy filing is unconstitutional and ordered the case be withdrawn from federal bankruptcy court. But Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette said in a statement soon after the decision that he intended an immediate appeal to the Michigan Court of Appeals and would seek to block this latest order from taking effect while the appeal is heard. The order came in response to motions by lawyers for retirees and pension funds for city workers, who argue the state constitution prohibits cutting pension and retirement benefits, as has been proposed in the bankruptcy case.

Good. Detroit has been bankrupt for a long time. This should help matters a bit. Hopefully they will have to restructure the government of the city as well. Maybe they won't have anymore "at large" councilpersons.
This is what happens when you have TOO MUCH liberal ideology running the politics of a government.
U.S. bankruptcy Judge Steven Rhodes has been chosen to preside over Detroit's Chapter 9 bankruptcy case.
Steven Rhodes has been a judge in U.S. Bankruptcy Court for nearly 30 years. He was appointed Friday by Alice Batchelder, chief judge at the federal appeals court that covers Michigan.
Rhodes has the endorsement of the chief judge at the Bankruptcy Court as well as many federal judges across the street at U.S. District Court.
