DETROIT (AP) - While a judge determines the future of Detroit's bankruptcy case, key people are meeting behind the scenes to try to reach deals.

Private mediation sessions are scheduled for Wednesday, at the same time the city tries to convince a judge that Detroit is eligible to fix its debts in bankruptcy court. The trial in front of Judge Steven Rhodes started on Oct. 23.

The mediation is being led by Detroit's chief federal judge, Gerald Rosen, with the help of other judges. Rosen says he wants to see lawyers for the city and a committee of retirees in his chambers prior to the Wednesday mediation session.
