Judge told to hurry deposition

Nov. 3, 2010 at 8:48 PM   |   Comments

DETROIT, Nov. 3 (UPI) -- A federal judge has ordered a Michigan state judge to complete a disposition in a suit against former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick by Friday.

Judge Ruth Carter of the 36th District Court is a former director of the Detroit Law Department. Her testimony is being sought in a lawsuit brought by the family of Tamara Greene, who accuse Kilpatrick of obstructing the investigation into her killing.

Greene's family says she performed as an exotic dancer at Manoogian Mansion, the Detroit mayoral residence in 2002, at what has been described as a "wild party." So far, no proof has been presented the party took place, that Greene performed there or that it had any connection to her death.

Carter has been questioned about e-mail exchanges in 2003 with Kilpatrick on whether to arrange a state investigation of the party. Her deposition was delayed because one of her lawyers had a family emergency.

The city has asked U.S. District Judge Gerald Rosen to dismiss the suit, and lawyers for the Greene family have until Nov. 10 to respond.

"It remains vitally important that this deposition be concluded as promptly as possible," Rosen wrote.
