This analysis sounds accurate to me. Orr planned on waltzing in here and using most of the city assets and income to project a rosy future, leaving those who supported the city in the lurch at 10 cents on the dollar less legal costs. Let a judge decide who gets what. As long as Obama is not the judge, equity might just prevail.
