CHICAGO — Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder will be questioned under oath Wednesday about the decisions leading up to Detroit's historic bankruptcy filing, while parties battling over the city's only pre-bankruptcy settlement resumed talks as they seek an out-of-court agreement.
Union and retiree attorneys are deposing Snyder to try to prove that local and state officials did not make their July 18 Chapter 9 filing in good faith. The good faith test is one of several that must be met for Detroit to formally enter into bankruptcy. State Treasurer Andy Dillon and top Snyder aide Richard Baird will be deposed Thursday.
