Orr initiated the Chapter 9 municipal bankruptcy filing process for the city in July, making Detroit the largest U.S. city to make such a filing.
Detroit's deficit is $18 billion dollars, $11 billion is unsecured including the pensions and retiree health care for 30,000 Detroit City employees and retirees.
Orr is a bankruptcy attorney who resigned from The Jones Day Law Firm to become Emergency Manager. Governor Rick Snyder had said he does not like the bankruptcy option but it is a tool to get Detroit back on track.
