Trial Delayed: Judge moves Detroit case to July date

Trial Delayed: Judge moves Detroit case to July date

After hearing from attorneys objecting to the first scheduled Detroit bankruptcy case timeline as too compressed, Judge Steven Rhodes extended the deadlines for filings and objections in the case. The hearing for the city’s Plan of Adjustment is to start July 16 with additional dates available into August.

Here’s the Amended Scheduling Plan Judge Rhodes issued. 

The deadline for voting on the plan is June 30. About 173,000 parties are eligible to vote on the plan in dozens of creditor categories including pensioners and bondholders.

The city filed its proposed Plan of Adjustment and Disclosure Statement Feb. 21. Attorneys have said they will amend it. Meanwhile, negotiations and mediation sessions continue between the city and various creditors.
