A federal judge derails Detroit’s efforts to recoup millions of dollars from the former police department monitor.
Attorney Sheryl Robinson Wood was appointed to oversee the police department. The city paid her and the companies she worked for.
But Wood resigned under fire in 2009 after it was revealed she had an improper relationship with then-mayor Kwame Kilpatrick. The city wants Wood to repay ten million dollars, but Federal Judge Julian Cook ruled the request would be better handled as a breach of contract lawsuit.
City attorneys in response say they are weighing their options.
