Kilpatricks may give Greene depositions
U.S. District Judge Gerald Rosen on Wednesday ordered lawyers in the Tamara Greene lawsuit to meet at the U.S. courthouse in Detroit on Monday to schedule depositions for former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, his wife, father, former chief of staff and two others in the case.
The order comes after Norman Yatooma, the lawyer for Greene’s family, said in court papers last week that defense lawyers were delaying his efforts to conduct depositions by a July 30 deadline.
Greene’s family is suing Kilpatrick and the city, claiming they derailed an investigation into her death, preventing them from filing a lawsuit against her killers. Greene, said to have danced at a long-rumored party at the mayoral Manoogian Mansion, was killed in a drive-by shooting in April 2003.
