DETROIT (WXYZ) - The city of Detroit is facing a new crisis because of a lawsuit against the state filed by the Corporation Counsel.
The suit contends that the state was in no position to enter into the Consent Agreement with the city because of outstanding revenue sharing payments.
In a letter sent to the city on Thursday, the state says that's not the case because the state doesn't owe the city any money . The letter also said that the lawsuit is putting further revenue sharing payments to the city in jeopardy and that Mayor Bing should instruct the Corporation Counsel to withdraw it.
However, Mayor Bing says that he does not have the power to tell the Corporation Counsel to withdraw the lawsuit because she has the independent power to file such a suit under the city's new charter.
