From the abstract:
The City of Detroit commenced the largest chapter 9 municipal bankruptcy in American history on July 18, 2013. This brief article details the first few months of the case, the public part of which I followed in almost-real time by listening to digital audio recordings of court hearings and reviewing primary source documents as they were filed.
