Detroit's emergency manager to give school lecture


DETROIT (AP) — Detroit's state-appointed emergency manager Kevyn Orr is going back to school to discuss the city's comeback with college students.

Wayne State University says Orr will guest lecture Wednesday evening during an urban studies and planning course that covers Detroit's restructuring as it happens.

The class session will focus on the city's fiscal issues.

Orr has said Detroit's debt is more than $18 billion. Last summer, he made Detroit the largest U.S. city to file for bankruptcy. The petition was approved by a federal judge in December.

All of the city's creditors have until July 11 to vote on Orr's restructuring plan for Detroit. A trial on the city's bankruptcy is scheduled to start in August.

Orr has said he expects Detroit to emerge from bankruptcy by early fall.
