Michael Sweet was quoted in the Law360 article "Discovery Battles Threaten To Derail Detroit’s Ch. 9." While the full text can be found in the August 27, 2013, issue of Law360, a synopsis is noted below.

Now that a bankruptcy judge has set discovery guidelines for Detroit’s quest for eligibility under Chapter 9, the city is going to have to scramble to avoid a prolonged legal battle.

With an October 23 eligibility hearing date set, the case has been cruising along, but is likely to be slowed by fights over discovery.

“Detroit is going to be a trailblazer if it can get eligibility within 90 days of the filing,” said Michael Sweet.
