DETROIT (AP) — The judge in Detroit's bankruptcy is leaning toward taking a tour of the city if he can work out the details with federal marshals and lawyers in the case.

Judge Steven Rhodes suggested Thursday that the date and time won't be disclosed if he accepts Detroit's offer to see the city's jewels and warts. He'll make a decision after meeting with certain parties in July.

Rhodes says he's concerned about safety but doesn't elaborate. The city says a tour would help him as he considers whether to approve a bankruptcy exit plan.

The trial starts Aug. 14.

A creditor's attorney says a three-hour tour reminds him of the boat ride in the 1960s' TV sitcom, "Gilligan's Island." Vince Marriott says people "know how that turned out" — a shipwreck.
