Federal court agrees to suspend Detroit bankruptcy appeals

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 08/02/2014 - 02:32
(Reuters) - A federal court agreed on Friday to suspend seven cases seeking to overturn a lower court ruling that found Detroit was eligible for municipal bankruptcy. The Sixth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals' action followed motions filed on Thursday by attorneys for Detroit pension funds, unions and others requesting that the cases be suspended instead of dismissed until the city concludes a confirmation process for its bankruptcy exit plan. The appeals court had initially scheduled oral arguments for July 30 for the seven cases. Instead of dismissals, the parties asked the court to hold off on ruling on any issues in the cases, adding however that the appeals process could be resumed if Detroit's current plan to adjust $18 billion of debt is changed or fails to be confirmed.
