A good old fashion “black book” prostitution scandal is brewing in U.S. District Court in downtown Detroit.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer Blackwell has filed papers urging the court to deny a Florida defense attorney access to tens of thousands of customers’ names on a list of a Miami escort service that wound up getting busted in Detroit last summer, the Detroit Free Press reports.
