A planned closed-door session of City Council this morning to discuss litigation that could derail Cobo expansion plans didn't happen because not enough council members showed up.
City Council President Monica Conyers had to adjourn a 9 a.m. special session because only three other council members -- JoAnn Watson, Kwame Kenyatta and Sheila Cockrel -- attended. A quorum, the minimum number of members required to conduct business, is five.
She pounded the gavel and ended the meeting. Another meeting to discuss the litigation could be held, but public notice must be made 18 hours in advance.
Martha must have been out too late last nihght clubbing and gambling.
