DETROIT (WKZO) -- The Detroit Institute of Arts has decided not to file an objection to Detroit’s eligibility for Chapter 9 bankruptcy.

Monday was the deadline for such a filing and over 100 creditors and others filed their objections.  DIA leaders say they will fight any move to sell the museum's art by Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr in court.

The museum’s city-owned collection remains vulnerable to sale, however Orr has not yet proposed including the art in his reorganization plan for the city’s finances.
