Closing Arguments: The Line Up

At the conclusion of testimony from witnesses, Judge Steven Rhodes asked which attorneys plan to make closing arguments Monday and how long they would take. Here’s what they said:

For the State of Michigan, Steven Howell, of Dickinson Wright, 30 minutes

For the Official Retirees Committee, Claude Montgomery, of Denton’s, 45 minutes

For the holders of some pension debt certificates, Jonathan Wagner, reserved his right to make closing arguments as his client hasn’t reached a formal settlement with the city.

For the pension systems, Robert Gordon, of Clark Hill, 15 to 20 minutes.

For the Detroit Police Officers Association, Barbara Patek, of Erman Teicher, possibly 10-15 minutes.

Individual objectors, Michael Karwoski and John Quinn, 30 to 45 minutes.

For the city, Bruce Bennett, of Jones Day, 3 hours.
