Former state Treasurer Andy Dillon emerged as an unlikely skeptic of the city’s bankruptcy, saying Tuesday that it looked “premeditated” and testimony suggested he was frozen out by Gov. Rick Snyder’s team in the days leading up to the Chapter 9 filing.
Dillon spent about two hours on the witness stand and will continue facing questions at 9 a.m. Thursday from the city’s pension funds, which are trying to kick Detroit out of bankruptcy court.
There is no trial time scheduled for Wednesday. Richard Baird, an aide to Gov. Rick Snyder, is likely to testify in the trial on Thursday.
Closing arguments in the trial could begin Thursday afternoon and stretch into Friday.
