Earlier this week Reuters had a story on the legal work generated by the Detroit bankruptcy filing, focusing on the large non-Michigan-based law firms that are beginning to descend on the federal court. As we reported here, the (arguably condescending) Reuters story also said although large

smaller creditors may choose Michigan firms. Today we bring you actual evidence for that proposition. Here's the court docket, which shows Michigan firms are decidedly in the mix, including Bodman, Dickinson Wright, Foster Swift, Honigman, Jaffe Raitt, Miller Canfield, and Warner Norcross.
