Wayne State law professor addresses key questions about Detroit bankruptcy trial


Wayne State bankruptcy law professor Laura Bartell addresses key questions about the Detroit bankruptcy trial in an interview with NPR. “These are people, who are not financial institutions," Bartell said. “These are city of Detroit retirees.” One of the biggest issues facing the bankruptcy proceeding is whether the plan is even feasible. “That’s going to probably be the crux of the confirmation hearing,” she said. “Does this plan work? Is the city of Detroit going to be viable?”
