DETROIT - A judge on Wednesday ordered Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr and two members of Michigan's Emergency Financial Assistance Loan Board to testify in an Open Meetings Act lawsuit.
The lawsuit, filed by Detroit activist Robert Davis, claims the interview process for the EM position was done behind closed doors, violating the Michigan Open Meeting Act.
Ingham County Judge William Collette approved an order requiring Orr and loan board members John Nixon and Steve Arwood to be deposed.
Davis had also wanted depositions for Gov. Rick Snyder and Michigan Treasurer Andy Dillon, but Collette hasn't granted them.
Collete did order Orr and the others to disclose any documents, including emails, "from the defendants and Kevyn Orr to any of the defendants, any state official or employee or elected representative, Kevyn Orr, and representatives and/or employees from Jones Day Law Firm from November 2012 to the present pertaining to the interview and search process for the appointment of Kevyn Orr."
