DETROIT (AP) — Some creditors in Detroit’s bankruptcy case want to keep the judge at the curb.
They filed an objection Tuesday to federal Judge Steven Rhodes taking a bus tour of the city. The ride is being proposed by Detroit’s legal team as a way for the judge to see warts as well as more positive scenes.
Rhodes will hold a trial in August on Detroit’s plan to get out of bankruptcy.
Bond insurers give many reasons for skipping a tour. They say the ride isn’t relevant to determining whether the city’s plan is fair and feasible.
In a footnote, they also mention security risks, saying groups could “stage incidents or confrontations” along the route.
Rhodes hasn’t decided whether he’ll ride.
