The state Court of Appeals today issued a defeat to ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick’s lawyers and ruled that a violation of probation hearing can proceed in Wayne County Circuit Court.

Shortly after the ruling, Maria Miller, a spokeswoman for Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy, issued the following statement: “This order lifts the stay and allows the probation violation hearing to proceed. The Wayne County Prosecutor's Office will have no comment on the order.”
