Governor to testify in Detroit bankruptcy trial

DETROIT (AP) - Michigan's governor is scheduled to testify in an extraordinary trial to determine Detroit's bankruptcy, the largest public filing in U.S. history, will go forward.

Republican Gov. Rick Snyder is scheduled to take the stand Monday afternoon. Snyder hired emergency manager Kevyn Orr, who filed for bankruptcy in July.

Orr is expected to resume testimony he started on Friday.

The trial began Wednesday and could end this week, but a decision on Detroit's eligibility appears to be weeks away. The judge has set a Nov. 13 deadline for lawyers to file legal briefs on certain issues.

The trial is an autopsy on what Snyder has called decades of ruinous financial decisions in the once-booming industrial hub of Detroit, combined with an exodus of people and other social and economic factors.
