Detroit judge concerned about safety on city tour

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) -- The judge in Detroit's bankruptcy says he's concerned about safety if he and lawyers take a three-hour tour of the city.
 
Judge Steven Rhodes suggested Thursday that the date and time won't be publicly disclosed if he accepts Detroit's offer to see the city's jewels and warts. The city believes a tour would help him as he decides whether to approve a bankruptcy exit plan.
 
Rhodes heard arguments Thursday but didn't immediately say what he'll do.
 
A creditor's attorney, Vince Marriott, says a three-hour tour reminded him of the theme song from the 1960s TV sitcom, "Gilligan's Island." He says, "We know how that turned out" -- a shipwreck.
 
Detroit attorney Robert Hertzberg told the judge it's important to see "living, breathing" parts of the city.
