Deposition Set for Kilpatrick in Stripper’s Death
DETROIT (AP) – Ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick will face questions later this month in a civil lawsuit that accuses him of stifling the investigation of a stripper’s death.
Norman Yatooma is the lawyer for Tamara Greene’s family. He says Kilpatrick’s deposition has been scheduled for July 29.
Kilpatrick’s wife Carlita will give a deposition on Aug. 5.
Lawyers in the case met with a federal judge Monday to iron out the schedule.
Kwame Kilpatrick denies he bottled up the police investigation of Greene’s unsolved murder. She was fatally shot in 2003.
Court filings show that a Michigan inmate will be deposed on Friday. Darrett King is in prison for assault with intent to commit murder in 2004. His role in the lawsuit isn’t known.
