…. Or get off the pot

Detroit’s city attorney John Schapka is saying enough is enough, and will ask U.S. District Judge Gerald Rosen to dismiss a suit against the city.

The suit was filed by the family of Tamara Greene, a dancer who the family’s attorney Norman Yatooma said danced at an alleged party at the mayoral mansion in Detroit. Six months after the rumored party, she was later murdered, and Yatooma says the city thwarted the investigation of her death. In the five years since the suit was filed, there have been 38 depositions, and more than 13,500 pages of police reports and other documents, and more than 11 million police and fire computer files, according to a story in today’s Detroit Free Press.

That’s quite enough, said Schapka. If the proof isn’t in all that documentation, it’s time to dismiss the case.

Kilpatrick family can be questioned

The Detroit Free Press reports this morning that attorney Norman Yatooma can question former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick’s wife and father.

Yatooma represents the family of Tamara Greene, a dancer who was murdered in 2003, months after allegedly dancing at a fabled party in 2002 at the mayoral residence. The family claims the city botched the investigation of her death.
