Judge Dismisses Consent Agreement Lawsuit
An Ingham County judge has dismissed the lawsuit challenging the city financial deal between the state and Detroit.
Circuit Court Chief Judge William Collette ruled to dismiss the lawsuit that was filed by Detroit city attorney Krystal Crittendon.
The lawsuit challenged the approval of the Financial Stability Agreement. The deal had been approved by Detroit Mayor Dave Bing and Detroit City Council.
The ruling sides with Detroit Mayor Dave Bing and Detroit City Council.
The judge told the court that Mayor Dave Bing has the authority in this matter, not Corporation Counsel.
“The capacity to bring this lawsuit resides with the City Council, the mayor and not with the city attorney… this lawsuit will not go forward, we will move on from here it is dismissed,” said Judge Collette.
In response to the ruling, Mayor Dave Bing announced that he will hold a news conference at 11:15 a.m. to comment on the dismissal.
