First witness in Detroit's bankruptcy trial

(WXYZ) - Only 7 Action News cameras are rolling as Detroit city leaders left federal court this evening.

Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan, Emergency Kevyn Orr and a top aide to the governor, Rich Baird, walked out just after 6 p.m.

As we've been reporting, Kevyn Orr is done as Emergency Manager on September 27. But state officials want Orr to stay on to see the bankruptcy case to the end, which could run into October.

Sources have said the transfer of power is not happening easily--and no one would talk tonight.

In bankruptcy court, Detroit's CFO John Hill testified most of the day that he's fixing Detroit's broken financial system, looking for new revenue and would carry out Detroit's Plan of Adjustment.

Hill could be questioned by Bankruptcy Judge Steven Rhodes on Friday as the Judge decides whether Detroit's Plan is feasible and should be confirmed.
