RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Michael Vick is asking a bankruptcy judge to allow him to sell his eight-bedroom home in the Atlanta suburb of Duluth at auction.
The house has been on the market for more than a year and is listed at $4.1 million. The imprisoned former NFL star disclosed the auction plans Tuesday in a new financial disclosure statement filed in his bankruptcy case in Newport News.
According to the statement, real estate agents have shown the house more than 30 times to potential buyers and have aggressively marketed the property. Vick's lawyers now are preparing a motion seeking permission to sell the house to the highest bidder at an auction on or around February 16.
Vick is serving a 23-month sentence for a federal dogfighting conspiracy.
