State Supreme Court won't hear Detroit mayor's appeal
(2008-02-27)
(wgvu) - DETROIT (AP) - The state Supreme Court has declined to hear
Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick's appeal. Kilpatrick had wanted to
keep sealed documents related to a text-messaging sex scandal.
The city filed its motion to take a state Appeals Court ruling
to the higher court February 15. The Supreme Court's decision was
unanimous.
The documents to be unsealed are part of an 8.4 million dollar
settlement the city made with former officers in last summer's
whistle-blowers' suit.
The documents could open the door to a perjury case against
Kilpatrick. The mayor and former Chief of Staff Christine Beatty
denied having a sexual relationship in testimony during a trial
involving two police officers.
The Wayne County prosecutor already is investigating.
