DETROIT, MI (WTVB) - An Ingham County judge says Detroit's bankruptcy filing is unconstitutional, breaks state law and has to be withdrawn.  However, Attorney General Bill Schuette says he is going to appeal Circuit Judge Rosemarie Aquilina's decisions and ask the Michigan Court of Appeals for emergency consideration.  He's trying to get her orders stayed while the appeals are worked out. 

Aquilina said Governor Rick Snyder and Detroit emergency manager Kevyn Orr must not take any more action that threatens to shrink the pension benefits for city retirees.
