Everything You Need to About Public Act 4
and Chapter 9 Municipal Bankruptcy

Originally Held: April 4, 2012

Cost: Complimentary

Presented by Douglas C. Bernstein and Michael S. Bogren

Topic Overview:

As the largest city in Michigan, Detroit’s financial crisis impacts the entire state and has been the center of attention for weeks. But it’s not the only city with severe budget problems and an uncertain future.

In a conference call and webinar exclusively for the media, Plunkett Cooney attorneys cut through the rhetoric and provided the facts about the complex issues media audiences need to understand as Michigan communities face a financial crossroads.

This webinar provided an opportunity to ask all the questions media members had about Michigan’s emergency manager law and Chapter 9 municipal bankruptcy. What could happen if the law is overturned? How does a municipal bankruptcy filing work and what would it mean for the communities you cover?

Partners Doug Bernstein and Mike Bogren, practice group leaders from Plunkett Cooney’s banking and municipal law practices, led the discussion. The free event featured opening remarks about Public Act 4 and municipal bankruptcy with the bulk of the time reserved for the media Q&A.
