What are you going to say? Nothin', that's what. What is there to say?

This is just the socialists attempting to avoid the natural consequences of the monstrosity they have birthed and called "the New America."

If Rachel Jenteal ever gets her act together, she can grow up to become just like this judge.

I'm not sure the judge has standing. She's an Ingam county judge, not a Wayne county judge. I do think its funny that she's telling Obama on us.

Aquilina said she would make sure President Obama got a copy of her order.

“I know he’s watching this,” she said, predicting the president ultimately will have to take action to make sure existing pension commitments are honored.

Just have Bernanke and Lew create a few billion extra electronic Baraqqi minibucks and send them to Motown.

Everybody will be happy.

Do it “for the children” of Detroit.....

With rumors it was eminent Thursday afternoon, attorneys representing the pension boards hurried into Aquilina’s court in Lansing to ask for a temporary restraining order.

But Snyder and Orr beat them by a few minutes. Aquilina,
informed by phone, allowed the pension board lawyers to revise their restraining order request, then granted it.

Prior to her ruling on Friday, the judge criticized the Snyder administration and Attorney General’s Office over its hasty move to outflank pension board attorneys.

“It’s cheating, sir, and it’s cheating good people who work,” the judge told assistant Attorney General Brian Devlin. “It’s also not honoring the (United States) president, who took (Detroit’s auto companies) out of bankruptcy.”

Aquilina said she would make sure President Obama got a copy of her order.

Is she that county judge that tried to cancel the bankruptcy?

Yes. She is saying that the Michigan State Constitution bars Detroit from filing bankruptcy. I predict that the federal bankruptcy court will tell her to pound sand, because state laws cannot trump federal laws, and the federal bankruptcy code permits municipal bankruptcies. (Actually, federal law puts a number of conditions on municipal bankruptcies, and there is a possibility that Detroit's filing won't qualify, but if so, it will be because Detroit didn't satisfy the requirements of federal law, not because of the Michigan Constitution.)

(Reuters) - Detroit’s historic municipal bankruptcy filing on Thursday came less than 10 minutes before lawyers for the city’s pension funds and retirees had rushed to another court to try to block it.

The bare bones bankruptcy petition, which came at 4:06:22 p.m., blindsided everyone in the room, according to two lawyers who were in state court in Lansing, Michigan, at the time. Even the lawyer representing the governor and the judge were caught unaware.

A photo of the dishonorable judge, who is a disgrace to the judiciary in that she cannot keep her personal political views apart from the facts in the case before her.

Is it any wonder Detroit is the disaster it is?

The whole country is bankrupt!

Detroit is even more bankrupt than the rest.

It’s like we are living in an old SNL skit here....a goofy judge ordering a city not to be bankrupt...lol. Why doesn’t she just order the national debt away too while she’s at it.. :-)

Unfortunately no. NY city alone has more than $100 billion in debt. Detroit is but a tiny canary in a very large coal mine.

Even if the unions got an injunction, BK laws are federal and any injunction would have been voided upon the mere filing of a petition to the BK court.

Once again she is crediting Obma for bailing out the car companies when it was the US Citizen who paid out the butt for that!

So is she going to send her decision to us and let us decide?

So much for a government of laws, not men.

By the way is a matter of curiosity, who pays his judge's salary and who would pay her pension?

And when employee's stop getting paid and stop showing up for work, is she going to order them back?

I truly hope a higher court with a little more in the integrity department slaps this dingbat without mercy.

I think racial quotas have caused a situation where people are filling positions for which they are clearly unqualified. Nepotism has traditionally been one source, but racial quotas have simply overwhelmed nepotism in terms of sheer numbers. Even with nepotism, the apple doesn't fall that far from the tree, whereas racial quotas have people from the favored ethnic groups dropping the ball all over the place.

The state supreme court leans heavily conservative. (since one of the liberal justices went to prison for fraud)
