DETROIT (WKZO) -- U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Steven Rhodes has ordered Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr to sit for a second deposition.

Orr sat for nearly eight-hours during a deposition on Monday and refused to answer some questions regarding communications he had with Governor Rick Snyder and the governor’s team.  Attorneys with the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees say they’re trying to figure out the timing and decision-making that surrounded Detroit’s bankruptcy filing on July 18th.

Even though Orr has been ordered to sit for a second deposition, Rhodes has limited the questions from union attorneys.
