Sludge company's ex-rep. due in Detroit court

DETROIT (AP) - A man who has been cooperating with the FBI in an investigation of a Detroit sludge-recycling contract is due in court, months after he publicly acknowledged mistakes in his dealings with the city.

A spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney's office, Gina Balaya, (buh-LIE'-uh) says Jim Rosendall is expected to appear at 1 p.m. Monday at the courthouse in downtown Detroit. She declined further comment.

Rosendall is a Grand Rapids-area man who represented Synagro Technologies, a Houston company that recycles waste from treatment
plants. The Detroit City Council awarded a contract to Synagro in 2007, but there are questions about how it got the deal.

Synagro has said the company is not a target. Defense lawyer Paul Denenfeld says Rosendall is "doing his best" to make things right.
