Supreme Court declines to hear consent deal suit

LANSING (AP) -- The Michigan Supreme Court says it won't take up a case over whether Detroit officials could enter into a financial oversight deal with the state.

The court said in an order dated last Friday that it wasn't persuaded that the questions presented should be reviewed.

The Court of Appeals ordered a stay March 23 of an Ingham County judge's ruling that state officials can't enter into a consent agreement with Detroit until he gave further orders.

Activist Robert Davis filed an emergency leave to appeal.

Ingham County Circuit Judge William Collette originally ruled that the state review team must comply with the Open Meetings Act, slowing the process.

A consent agreement was reached this month to address Detroit's financial problems without putting a state-appointed emergency manager in place.
