From behind bars, ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is fighting to remain a lawyer. One of Kilpatrick's attorneys filed papers Monday with the Michigan Attorney Discipline Board, asking it to set aside a judge's order revoking Kilpatrick's law license. A judge ordered Kilpatrick's law license to be revoked last month when he sentenced the former Motown mayor to 120 days in jail for lying about an affair at a police whistle-blower trial that cost the city $8.4 million.
