Bankruptcy hearing for former Virginia delegate canceled

The bankruptcy hearing for former Virginia Delegate Phil Hamilton, which was set to take place in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, has been canceled, according to the court docket.

The Daily Press reports that Hamilton, who is set to face a federal trial in Richmond on charges of extortion and bribery in the coming days, filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy in February.

Hamilton was expected to appear in Newport News for the bankruptcy hearing after an objection was filed to his repayment plan to creditors, the news provider said. However, the hearing was canceled for an unknown reason.

The bankruptcy trustee in the Chapter 13 case, Michael P. Cotter, filed the objection to the repayment plan proposed by Hamilton and his wife, claiming it was "underfunded and will not pay out as proposed," according to the news source.

In a court filing, Cotter added that Hamilton's status was uncertain pending his criminal trial and that his wife, Kim, was currently unemployed.

According to WAVY-TV, a local NBC affiliate, Hamilton's criminal trial is expected to begin on May 2.
