Two federal judges who helped usher through the complicated and historical Detroit bankruptcy are joining forces to start a downtown Detroit office of Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services in April, Crain's Detroit Business reports. 

U.S. District Judge Gerald Rosen, who helped usher through the so called "Grand Bargain," that involved saving pensions and art at the Detroit Institute of Art, is joining forces with retired U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Steven Rhodes, who oversaw the bankruptcy case, Kirk Pinho reports.
