The Philadelphia Inquirer ( http://bit.ly/KNjpzA) says Judge Eric Frank said at a hearing Monday that he will approve a timeline to bring the orchestra before the court again June 28 for a confirmation hearing.
He said any objections to the orchestra's reorganization plan would have to be heard at that hearing, and the notoriety of the case suggests that interested parties are already aware of the situation. Ballots approving or objecting to the plan are due back from creditors two days before that.
The orchestra's chief bankruptcy lawyer, Lawrence McMichael, said officials want creditors paid as soon as possible and to avoid another month of legal and other professional fees.
