The State of Michigan filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court a motion for entry of an order that limits enquiry relating to emergency manager candidates. The motion explains, “The State anticipates that the State Deponents may be asked to identify individuals other than Kevyn Orr who were actively considered for the position of emergency manager for the City of Detroit. Each of the individuals, other than Mr. Orr, who were actively considered for the position were given assurances by the Governor’s office that their identities would remain confidential. Disclosure of the names of emergency manager candidates would not only violate their privacy and the assurances of confidentiality made to them but might also be damaging to certain of the individuals in their current positions because their current employers are not aware that these candidates had expressed an interest in the position. Further, certain of the individuals are elected officials whose re–electability could be affected by disclosure of their identities.” The State also filed a separate motion to expedite the hearing of the protective order motion for October 8, 2013.
