Detroit bankruptcy trial reaches 8th day

DETROIT (AP) -- Detroit's bankruptcy trial is entering its eighth day with the return of former Michigan Treasurer Andy Dillon to the witness chair.

Dillon has been a witness for unions and pension funds challenging Detroit's eligibility to remake itself in bankruptcy court. He says he supports the bankruptcy, but a July email shows he was concerned that the city wasn't doing enough with creditors before the filing.

Good-faith negotiations are a key step to qualify for a Chapter 9 restructuring. The trial is resuming Thursday after a day off.

Dillon says Gov. Rick Snyder wanted a fast, efficient bankruptcy that could be wrapped up during the 18-month term of Detroit emergency manager Kevyn Orr.
