Judge Rhodes delays Detroit bankruptcy case

(WXYZ) - Judge Steven Rhodes has agreed to delay the Detroit bankruptcy case at the urging of plaintiff attorneys. 

The confirmation trial on Detroit's plan of adjustment has been pushed back three weeks. It is now set to start August 14 and could run as late as September 23. 

This is the battle over whether Detroit's plan is fair and equitable to all creditors including retirees and Wall Street bond holders and insurance companies.  This delay could also affect emerging from bankruptcy with Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr still running the city. 

He could be done at the end of September and the mayor and city council would have the ability vote him out, which is expected.
