Union seeks to expedite Detroit bankruptcy appeals for justice

On Dec. 3, a U.S. Bankruptcy Court judge ruled that the City of Detroit can file for Chapter 9 municipal bankruptcy. That makes Detroit the nation’s largest municipality to file for bankruptcy, greatly eclipsing others on the list, including three California municipalities. Orange County, Stockton and San Bernardino County came in at third, fourth and fifth, respectively, with the largest involving debt levels only a ninth the size of Detroit’s.
