DETROIT (WKZO) -- U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Steven Rhodes says he will take a tour of Detroit to get a personal view of the condition of the city.

In court Thursday, Rhodes said the details of the three-hour trip will be kept confidential for security reasons and he will meet with members of the U.S. Marshals before the tour. During the hearing Rhodes also ruled Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette will not have to testify about an opinion he wrote about property at the Detroit Institute of Arts.

Rhodes also ruled that city of Detroit retirees' hardships would not be taken into account during the restructuring plan confirmation trial. The ruling stops an attempt by bond insurer Syncora to access the personal financial information of pensioners.
