The federal government’s shutdown is affecting a proposed settlement for the Colony Beach & Tennis Resort.
Town attorney Maggie Mooney-Portale informed the commission in an email Wednesday that U.S. Bankruptcy Trustee William Maloney’s office is not functioning due to the shutdown.
Although a bankruptcy hearing slated for this afternoon and another hearing scheduled for Oct. 23 are still in place to review a signed settlement and two other proposed settlements, a settlement can’t be reached unless the trustee is present to agree to a deal.
“Given the trustee’s absence, we are being told that a hearing on the 'Global Compromise' and objections may need to be rescheduled to a time in November,” Portale wrote in her email.
A 3 p.m. hearing today is scheduled in U.S. Bankruptcy Judge K Rodney May’s courtroom for a status update for all affected parties.
An Oct. 23 hearing, which is scheduled to consider a motion to approve a settlement filed with the court, could be rescheduled if the trustee can’t be present.
