The wife and father of former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick have asked a federal judge to quash a request to depose them in the lawsuit involving a slain stripper who was said to have danced at a long-rumored party at the mayoral Manoogian Mansion.
Carlita and Bernard Kilpatrick filed the request in U.S. District Court in Detroit on Sunday in response to deposition requests by a lawyer for the family of the stripper, Tamara Greene, who was killed in a drive-by shooting in April 2003. The Kilpatricks were to be deposed in Texas on Aug. 5-6.
