DETROIT - The bankrupt City of Detroit on Nov. 8 filed a brief in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Michigan contending that its attempt to establish bar dates for claims filed against the bankruptcy estate was not an attempt to deny city employees and retirees the right to vote on the pension and health care claims they may possess in the bankruptcy (In Re: City of Detroit, No. 13-53846, Chapter 9, E.D. Mich. Bkcy.).
