DETROIT (WWJ) – A civil lawsuit filed by the family of slain exotic dancer Tamara Greene will bring former Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, his former mistress, Christine Beatty, and other city officials to court on Monday to testify in the case.

Norman Yatooma is the family’s attorney. He is trying to determine whether there’s any evidence that the former mayor or the city obstructed the investigation into Greene’s unsolved death. At hand is the question of whether Kilpatrick or the city intentionally destroyed e-mails that could shed light on the woman’s unsolved killing.

Yatooma is trying to find e-mails received and sent by Kilpatrick and others from September 2002 through June 2003.

The woman, who allegedly danced at a rumored but never proven party at the Manoogian Mansion, was killed in a still unsolved drive-by shooting in 2003.
