WASHINGTON Aug 13 U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Steven
Rhodes has pushed the start of the trial on Detroit's exit from
bankruptcy to Aug. 29 from Aug. 21, with opening statements
scheduled for the following Tuesday, Sept. 2.
In a court order filed late Wednesday, Rhodes also allocated
85 hours to each side for presenting their cases, adding that
the 3.25 hours for his tour of Detroit would be deducted from
the city's portion of time. Originally, he had allocated 98
hours each to the city and other supporters of the restructuring
plan and to creditors objecting to the plan.
