Daily Staff Reporter
DETROIT - In the Theodore
Levin U.S. Courthouse Friday after-
9 noon, Judge Steven Rhodes deter-
mined Detroit's proposed plan of
adjustment is feasible, marking a
new chapter for the city as it exits
bankruptcy. The decision comes
more than a year after the city of
Detroit became the largest munici-
pality to declare Chapter 9 bank-
ruptcyin U.S. history.
The decision states that the city
filed for bankruptcy in good faith,
that the plan of adjustment is fea-
sible, passes "fair and equitable" and
that it is in the best interest of credi-
tors.
In his decision, Rkodes wrote to

Sunday.

Participating in
national dialogue,
new program lays
foundation for action
By WILL GREENBERG
Daily NewsEditor
As conversations on sexual
assault continues to grow on
campus, the Central Student
Government has partnered with
the I Will campaign to facilitate
peer-to-peer efforts to address
the issue.
Sunday morning, a group of
more than 20 students attended
a workshop to discuss education,
awareness and resources, as each
relates to sexual assault preven-
tion. The meeting was the first of
several meetings meant to build
a foundation for future action.
CSG President Bobby Dishell,
a Public Policy senior, and LSA
senior Hannah Crisler, direc-
tor of I Will, hosted the event
and invited Engineering Prof.
Thomas Zurbuchen; Jen Weg-
ner, assistant director of Stu-
dent Affairs for the School of
Engineering and Holly Rider-
Milkovich, director of the Sexual

Assault Prevention and Aware-
ness Center, to help facilitate
group discussion.
While students had var-
ied affiliations with different
groups and schools on campus,
the workshop was designed to
include students already pas-
sionate about the issue them-
selves. Students from across
campus, student government
representatives among them,
shared thoughts on where the
University has fallen short in
handling sexual assault and
offered ideas of how to improve.
However, this first work-
shop was not focused on finding
immediate solutions. Organizers
acknowledged the importance
of first removing the stigma sur-
rounding the discussion of sexu-
al assault and aimed to consider
new ideas to tackle the issue.
"We are in a marathon, not a
sprint," Rider-Milkovich told the
room.
Still, by the end of the session,
the attendees landed on a hand-
ful of ideas that could be imple-
mented in the near future. Most
notably, the idea of expanding
the required prevention training
to all student groups - includ-
ing clear language about sexual

Army, Navy ROTC
programs face off in
wheelchair rivalry
By EMILIE PLESSET
Daily StaffReporter
Instead of tennis shoes, rub-
ber wheels raced back and forth
around Crisler Center Sunday
night as part of the fifth annual

Army vs. Navy Wheelchair Bas-
ketball game in honor of Vet-
erans Day. The game was the
final event of the University's
Investing in Ability Week and
the second event of the Univer-
sity's weeklong celebration of
the nation's armed forces.
About 52 University veter-
ans of the United States Navy
and Army, as well as University
ROTC cadets and professional
wheelchair basketball players,

battled against each other in
the popular rivalry game. Team
USA Paralympians Scot Severn,
an army veteran and member of
the Paralympic track and field
team, and Paul Schulte, co-cap-
tain of the United States Para-
lympian basketball team, also
participated in the event.
"Veterans Day comes and it
goes and you think, 'OK have
I done anything meaningful
with this,"' Shulte said. "This is

a chance to help celebrate along
with them."
While Navy beat Army for
the second year in a row with a
score of 44-37, the game brought
the two branches of the armed
forces together to honor those
who have served.
"It's an opportunity to say
thank you to the many people
that served," said Gerald Hoff,
the event's organizer and an
