Detroit City Council Refuses To Drop Lawsuit That Will Bankrupt Detroit in Four Days

Detroit City Council Refuses To Drop Lawsuit That Will Bankrupt Detroit in Four Days

Yesterday, Detroit Mayor and former NBA star Dave Bing failed to convince Detroit’s City Council to push for dismissal of a lawsuit that would challenge the city’s agreement with the state to restore fiscal stability. “[O]nce we run out of money,” said Bing, “there is no way that we can run this city – and that’s the risk that we’re up against as we speak here today.”

Based on the lawsuit, which is an attempt by the city to overrule an agreement with the state that requires budget cuts, the state of Michigan is threatening to hold back $80 million in funding. “They don’t seem to be backing down at all, so I don’t want to play this game of roulette and keep our citizens at risk,” pled Bing.

But the City Council doesn’t want to hear it. They want to keep spending, even if there’s no money to do it with.
