Retirees appeal Detroit bankruptcy ruling

DETROIT (WKZO) -- More than a week after Bankruptcy Judge Steven Rhodes approved the Chapter 9 filing by the City of Detroit, a group of city retirees are appealing the ruling.

The attorney representing the retirees says the issue needs to be heard in a higher court before pensions are cut.  Rhodes has set a hearing for Monday that will determine if creditors can directly appeal the case to the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals.

The retirees join creditors and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Union in opposition to the bankruptcy approval.
