A hearing is set in Virginia on whether Michael Vick should be brought from a Kansas prison to testify in his bankruptcy case.

Federal authorities have objected to U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Frank Santoro’s demand that the suspended NFL star testify in person at his Chapter 11 confirmation hearing early next month. Santoro scheduled a hearing on the objection for Wednesday morning in Norfolk.

The U.S. attorney’s office in Alexandria says it would be burdensome and expensive for federal marshals to move Vick. They propose four alternatives: delay the confirmation hearing, rely on depositions, allow testimony by video hookup from prison, or require Vick to pay for the trip to Virginia.
