Kilpatrick judge waited out rain in Tigers suite

U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds

U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds is a hardcore Detroit Tigers fan. She wears a Tigers pin on her black robe and had tickets to the rained-out game last night.

“Did you buy beers for two-and-a-half hours thinking the game would be delayed?” Kilpatrick attorney James C. Thomas asked her.

“I was lucky,” the judge said. “The tickets were in a suite so somebody else bought the beer.”
