Detroit bankruptcy bill approaching 36-million dollars

DETROIT (WKZO) -- The City of Detroit's bankruptcy bill is approaching 36-million dollars.

Documents filed this week in federal court say lawyers and consultants have billed taxpayers 36.3-million dollars in fees and expenses for six months of work on the landmark case. Fees have reportedly ballooned from 13.7-million in charges following the city's bankruptcy filing in July.

Officials say costs spiked between October and December due to the nine-day trial held by U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Steven Rhodes to determine whether Detroit was eligible for bankruptcy relief.
