Judge To Hear Arguments On Naming EM Candidates

By  | 

DETROIT (AP) -- Bankruptcy Judge Steven Rhodes will hear arguments from the state and lawyers representing city unions on whether Gov. Rick Snyder, his transformation manager and Treasurer Andy Dillon are required during depositions this week to name past Detroit emergency manager candidates.

A hearing is set for Tuesday morning in Detroit. Snyder's deposition is Wednesday in Lansing, while Dillon and Richard Baird will be questioned Thursday.

The state has said that disclosing the candidates' names would violate their privacy and could damage the current jobs of some because their employers are not aware of their interest in the emergency manager job.

Bankruptcy attorney Kevyn Orr was hired by the state in March. Orr made Detroit the largest U.S. city to seek court protection when he filed for bankruptcy in July.
