DETROIT (WWJ) – Over 500 lawsuits filed against the City of Detroit could be settled, or at least moved forward, when U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Steven Rhodes holds a hearing to discuss progress on those lawsuits.

Attorney Bill Goodman, who represents a number of injured people, says he’s not happy with the city’s plan to deal with wrongful convictions, bus accidents, slips and falls and many others.

“People who have been subjected to devastating and horrible injuries and damages because of the wrongdoing of the city of Detroit should be treated not only with a certain level of justice, but a certain level of honor,” Goodman told WWJ Newsradio 950.

He’s not happy that the injured people will be lumped in with all of the creditors that the city owes money to.
