In Detroit and elsewhere, the murder of Greene has been the subject of whispers and conjecture for years. The family of Greene filed suit against Kilpatrick and the city, claiming that the powers that be squelched the subsequent investigation.

In November, a federal judge dismissed the case. Now he’s releasing the testimony behind his decision. The Detroit Free Press reports:

Chief U.S. District Judge Gerald Rosen said he plans to unseal dozens of items, including the sworn testimony of then-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, two former police chiefs and several police executives who were questioned in the case — unless they file objections within 30 days.

It wasn’t immediately clear when the records would be made available.

Rosen said previously he wouldn’t release the testimony of several others, including former Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox, because they didn’t factor into his decision to toss the case.

Cox lost the 2010 Republican gubernatorial primary amid criticism about his handling of the investigation into the Manoogian party rumors. He didn’t take along State Police investigators to his interview with Kilpatrick and declared the rumor an urban legend.

Rosen previously said he also doesn’t plan to release the depositions of Kilpatrick’s wife, Carlita Kilpatrick, who was rumored to have assaulted a stripper at the 2002 party; former Kwame Kilpatrick top aide Christine Beatty; former city Law Department director Ruth Carter; two former Kilpatrick bodyguards, or Darrett King, the man some detectives said they believe killed Greene.
