Judge stops lawsuits against Detroit bankruptcy

Firefighters protest outside the Theodore Levin United States Courthouse, in Detroit, Wednesday, July 24, 2013. A lawyer for Detroit argued Wednesday that the city would be “irreparably harmed” if lawsuits challenging a multibillion-dollar bankruptcy are allowed to go forward, the first dispute in the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history. Retirees anxious about their pensions have won favorable rulings from an Ingham County judge that could slow down or even derail the bankruptcy filed just last week.(AP Photo/Paul Sancya)
