Kwame Kilpatrick due in court on two separate cases Wednesday

DETROIT (WXYZ) - Kwame Kilpatrick has a busy day ahead of him.

Detroit's former mayor will be doing double duty in court Wednesday. Kilpatrick is scheduled to appear before two different judges, in two courtrooms.

The Kilpatrick federal corruption case will pick back up Wednesday morning, after one of Bobby Ferguson's attorneys had to be rushed to the hospital following a bad fall inside the courthouse on Monday.

Judge Nancy Edmunds put the trial on hold Tuesday over concerns Susan Van Dusen may have broken her nose in the fall.

Kilpatrick is also scheduled to be in Wayne County Circuit Court Wednesday afternoon.

Judge David Groner ordered the former mayor to appear in court in connection to his restitution.

The hearing is in response to a Court of Appeals decision regarding proceeds from the sale of his book "Surrendered: The Rise, Fall and Revelation of Kwame Kilpatrick."

The court will also take a closer look at Kilpatrick's finances, after it was revealed he was late with a $500 restitution payment to the city last month.
