DETROIT (WWJ) The former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick will be deposed in prison next month by lawyers for SkyTel in a lawsuit brought by Kilpatrick over the release of sexually explicit text messages.

In 2009, Kilpatrick sued SkyTel, saying it violated his rights with release of records from his city-issued pager.

Some of the messages contained sexually explicit dialogue between the married Kilpatrick and ex-chief of staff Christine Beatty. They both served jail sentences for lying in court about their affair.
