Robert Hertzberg told Judge Steven Rhodes there’s a “lot of hope” to see, too. He says a trip around Detroit would be appropriate in July when the judge holds a trial on the city’s plan to emerge from bankruptcy.
Rhodes didn’t respond to the offer Thursday. Just moments later, a fire alarm went off, forcing everyone to leave the 10-story Detroit federal courthouse for about an hour. There was no fire.
Creditors have until July 11 to vote on Detroit’s bankruptcy plan, from pension cuts to bond losses. The judge will then hold a trial.
