DETROIT (WKZO) -- New dates have been set for creditor groups to present their arguments regarding whether Detroit is eligible for bankruptcy.

Originally, arguments were to be made September 18th, however U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Steven Rhodes has pushed back the date to October 15th and added a second day, October 16th.  Over 100 individuals have filed objections.

The hearings lead up to an October 23rd eligibility hearing, at which Rhodes will likely decide whether Detroit meets the criteria for filing Chapter 9 bankruptcy.
