Mike Stefani was hired by Gary Brown to sue Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and the City of Detroit for wrongful termination and violation of whistleblower protections. He was known as an aggressive litigator, and in the Gary Brown case he cross-examined both Kwame and Christine Beatty regarding their text message history. He later subpoenaed those text messages, which were eventually leaked to the Detroit Free Press.

Mike appears in Episode 13.

I didn’t ask you who was charged with it or where the ball rests or whether God told you to run for the city, Mayor, I asked you why you didn’t tell the chief the information you had?
