New hearing scheduled in bankruptcy case

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A hearing in the bankruptcy case of the United States National Slavery Museum has been continued because an attorney representing former Governor Doug Wilder was a no show in court.

A new court hearing has been scheduled for January 18 in US Bankruptcy court.

Documents filed in October show the museum owes creditors more than $7 million.

The museum was supposed to open by 2004 but was never able to raise sufficient funds.
