NAACP Detroit chapter to file suit against Michigan's emergency financial manager law

DETROIT (WXYZ) - The Detroit branch of the NAACP is set to file suit against the state's emergency financial manager law.

The group will hold a press conference Monday morning to discuss the suit.

This comes a day after Emergency Financial Manager Kevyn Orr released his financial and operating plan that indicated the city could run out of cash this summer.

The report states that the city of Detroit's expenditures have surpassed revenues from 2008 to 2012 by an average of $100 million each year.

And the unrestricted deficit at the end of fiscal year 2012 was $326.6 million with a $60 million addition looming by summer time, according to the assessment.
 
Similar challenges to the state's emergency financial manager law have not been successful.
