Insurer challenges Detroit Emergency Manager's restructuring plan

DETROIT (WKZO) -- An insurance company is challenging Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr’s restructuring plan for the city.

In a written statement released Monday, Ambac Assurance says it does not agree with Orr’s plan to treat general obligation bondholders and unsecured creditors the same.  The insurer backs more than 170-million dollars in Detroit bonds.

Ambac’s comments come just days after Orr directed the city to sue a debt insurer trying to block Detroit from accessing casino revenues.
