Lawyer: Stripper danced at Detroit mayor's house

Lawyer: Stripper danced at Detroit mayor's house

November 22nd, 2010 in News

DETROIT (AP) - A lawyer says a stripper got $1,000 to perform at a dope-fueled party at the Detroit mayor's mansion and saw Kwame Kilpatrick's wife attack a woman who was giving the then-mayor a lap dance.

Tamika Ruffin's statement comes in documents released Sunday by Norman Yatooma, lawyer for another stripper killed months after the long-rumored 2002 party.

Yatooma's filing is a response to efforts by Kilpatrick and the city to dismiss a lawsuit by Tamara Greene's family. The 27-year-old Greene was shot to death in 2003. Her family says city officials suppressed the investigation.

No one has been charged, and city lawyers deny officials squelched a probe.

Ruffin claims Carlita Kilpatrick attacked Greene with a table leg or board.

City and Kilpatrick lawyers did not return messages to The Associated Press.
