beatty deal Deposition Continues For Ex Kilpatrick Aide Beatty

The former top aide to ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is expected to resume her deposition in a civil suit by the family of slain stripper Tamara Greene.

Christine Beatty is to meet Friday with attorney Norman Yatooma at her lawyers’ Southfield office. The first part of her deposition was given last month.

Yatooma represents Tamara Greene’s three children. Greene was fatally shot in 2003, several months after reportedly performing at a rumored wild party at the Detroit mayoral mansion.

The lawsuit says Kilpatrick and others stifled a police probe of the death.

Beatty was Kilpatrick’s chief of staff.

Explicit text messages with the married mayor on Beatty’s city-issued pager showed they lied in a separate civil case. Both were charged and served jail time.
