Ex-Detroit mayor’s father skips deposition
The father of former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick did not show up in Texas for interviews in a civil lawsuit over the death of a stripper.
Bernard Kilpatrick was a no-show Thursday morning at his scheduled deposition.
The family of Tamara Greene says ex-Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick stifled an investigation into her still-unsolved fatal shooting in 2003. He denies it.
Attorney Norman Yatooma wants to interview Carlita Kilpatrick and Bernard Kilpatrick about a long-rumored party at Detroit’s mayoral mansion where Greene may have danced. Carlita Kilpatrick was expected to attend her deposition Thursday afternoon.
Sources say Yatooma is expected to file court papers asking that Bernard Kilpatrick be held in contempt.
