DETROIT (WKZO) -- The state of Michigan has hired additional attorneys to advise the governor and state treasurer in Detroit’s bankruptcy case.

According to a spokesperson for the Attorney General’s Office, attorneys from the law firm Dickinson Wright will provide supplemental representation to a team of state lawyers assigned to represent Governor Rick Snyder and Treasurer Andy Dillon.  The attorneys will reportedly be used on an as needed basis.

According to officials, as of September 16th, the firm has billed the Treasury Department over 100-thousand dollars in fees for work done in the first two months of Detroit’s Chapter 9 reorganization case.
