DETROIT (WKZO) -- The hearing on whether the City of Detroit is eligible to file Chapter 9 bankruptcy began Wednesday morning before Judge Steven Rhodes.

Shortly into the proceedings, the State Attorney General's office said they will not attempt to block testimony by Governor Rick Snyder.  The governor offered to testify in the case and is scheduled to be on the stand Monday for two hours.

Attorneys representing city workers, retirees and creditors are trying to persuade Rhodes that city officials did not negotiate in good faith prior to filing bankruptcy and the state's Emergency Manager law is unconstitutional, making the filing by Kevyn Orr invalid.
