DETROIT (AP) - Labor unions and other creditors are getting a chance to grill Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder about the decision to put Detroit in bankruptcy court.
Snyder, a Republican, is expected to sit for a three-hour deposition under oath Wednesday in Lansing. His answers could be used in a few weeks when a judge holds a trial to determine if Detroit is eligible to shed or restructure billions in debts.
Snyder says he plans to "answer their questions honestly." Critics say Detroit's emergency manager may not have negotiated enough with creditors before the bankruptcy was filed in July. Bargaining done in good faith will be a key issue.
Law professor Devin Schindler says it's very rare for a governor to be interviewed under oath about executive decisions.
