Members of the Detroit Journalism Cooperative will present a special event today entitled Detroit Bankruptcy: One Year Later. This free community event will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 9, at Wayne State University’s Community Arts Auditorium in Detroit. Key figures in the bankruptcy case, including Gov. Rick Snyder, Mayor Mike Duggan and now-retired Bankruptcy Judge Steven Rhodes, will answer questions from journalists from the Detroit Journalism Cooperative, with a focus on the state of the city after bankruptcy.
