Feds won't bring Vick to Va. bankruptcy hearing

Feds won't bring Vick to Va. bankruptcy hearing

Federal authorities are opposing a plan to bring former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick from a Kansas prison to testify at his bankruptcy hearing in Virginia.
Vick is serving a 23-month sentence at Leavenworth, Kan., for bankrolling a dogfighting operation. He filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in July.
U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Frank Santoro said last month that Vick must appear at a hearing in Norfolk on April 2nd, even if the suspended NFL star's attorneys have to get a court order to make it happen.
The U.S. attorney's office in Alexandria filed an objection Tuesday, a day after Vick's lawyers asked for the court order.
No explanation was given for the objection. Santoro has scheduled a hearing on the issue for Wednesday morning.
