DETROIT - A defense attorney in the Kwame Kilpatrick federal corruption trial took a tumble Monday at a courthouse in Detroit.
Susan Van Dusen slipped on a mat and fell face first on the marble floor during a break in testimony. EMS was called and she was taken to a hospital for an injury to her nose.
The hearing was adjourned for the day just before 11 a.m.
Van Dusen is representing Bobby Ferguson, Kilpatrick's childhood friend and a well-known contractor.
This is the second of Ferguson's defense lawyers to be struck with a health issue. Gerald Evelyn took ill in court in late October, had to be rushed to hospital and court adjourned for two weeks.
