CHICAGO -- U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Steven Rhodes, who oversees Detroit’s Chapter 9 case, will hear arguments over the legality of the state’s emergency management law, as well as other issues, in a hearing on Wednesday.

The tentative agenda features an argument from the Detroit and Michigan branches of the NAACP and others asking that Rhodes lift the automatic stay halting all litigation against the city, and allow their lawsuit challenging the state’s emergency management law to be heard in district court.
