Visit CBS Detroit's
An attorney for the family of murdered stripper Tamara Greene, said to have danced at the never-proven Manoogian Mansion party, is fighting efforts to dismiss a lawsuit againstthe city of Detroit.
But Birmingham Norman Yatooma reportedly filed paperwork Wednesday night to keep the case alive.
What will happen next? WWJ spoke Thursday with Legal Analyst Charlie Langton, who said Yatooma has his work cut out for him.
“The just must see the best case that Norman Yatooma can make. Otherwise, the judge will throw this case out,” Langton said.
“From what I see, and what I’ve heard, I think the family of Tamara Greene has a very, very tough case ahead of them,” he said.
Yatooma’s suit accuses former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick of sabotaging the investigation into Greene’s death.
Federal Judge Gerald Rosen will decide whether the case should remain in court within the next couple of weeks.
