DETROIT (WKZO) -- A mistake by attorneys representing the City of Detroit in their bankruptcy is costing the city $10,000. The Jones Day law firm mistakenly sent information to creditors in May that included closed-door negotiations.

Judge Steven Rhodes ordered the city to pay Assured Guaranty Municipal Corporation for expenses related to the mistake. Jones Day officials say their staff reviews all documents mailed out concerning the bankruptcy case.
