NORFOLK, Va. (AP) -- Lawyers for suspended NFL star Michael Vick are headed back to bankruptcy court in Virginia.
U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Frank Santoro has scheduled a status hearing Tuesday in Norfolk. Santoro rejected Vick's Chapter 11 plan earlier this month and ordered him to come up with a more realistic one.
Vick's first plan was based largely on his expectation of resuming his pro football career. But NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has not said whether he will lift Vick's suspension after the former Atlanta Falcons quarterback finishes serving his 23-month sentence for bankrolling a dogfighting ring.
Vick is expected to move from the federal penitentiary into home confinement in Hampton next month.
