NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (AP) -- Michael Vick's bankruptcy lawyers are headed back to court in Virginia.

A hearing is scheduled Friday in Newport News on the imprisoned NFL star's revised financial disclosure statement. Last month, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Frank Santoro ruled the first disclosure statement insufficient and ordered a new one.

The court also is expected to consider issues related to the sale of some of Vick's cars, his boats and a house in Duluth, Ga., that he wants to sell at auction.

The former Atlanta Falcons quarterback remains in the federal penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kan., where he is serving a 23-month sentence for his role in a dogfighting conspiracy. His lawyers say in court documents that he could soon be transferred to a halfway house.
