Vallejo city's cautionary tale for Detroit

With Detroit running out of money and options, Vallejo in California has had its own fiscal woes.

    Detroit's bankruptcy filing may be about to experience a setback.

    A decision is to be made on whether to have the case heard in a state court rather than a federal one.

    That would protect the police and fire departments' pension funds, however, Detroit is not the first US city to battle bankruptcy.

    Al Jazeera's Stephanie Stanton reports from Vallejo, in California.
