DOVER, Del. (AP) - Attorneys for the Boy Scouts of America are postponing a key bankruptcy hearing that was scheduled to start next week following a court ruling that casts uncertainty on the future of the case.

Attorneys on Friday filed court papers postponing a hearing set to begin Wednesday until Sept. 21.

The hearing concerns an explanatory document that must be approved before creditors can vote on a reorganization plan.

The move comes one day after the judge rejected two key provisions in an agreement involving the Boy Scouts and attorneys representing tens of thousands of men who say they were sexually abused as youngsters by Scout leaders and others.
