Detroit Bankruptcy A Few Minutes-6

Detroit resident Olivia Gillon addresses the media outside federal court in Detroit, Thursday, Sept. 19, 2013 after attending a Detroit bankruptcy hearing. Dozens of residents have told a judge why they oppose Detroit's bankruptcy, but they had to do it in three minutes or less. "I was actually not looking for my day in court. Some people did thank the judge for giving them their day in court. I simply received a notice in the mail, read it, tried to understand it, realized that they were treating me as an individual creditor and felt like I needed to respond." (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio)
