The approaching winter storm is closing down parts of the country and Delaware is no exception.

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware announced it will close tomorrow due to inclement weather which could blanket the region with several inches of snow.

Tomorrow’s closure will delay the long-awaited Fisker bankruptcy court hearing, which will decide the future of the luxury car manufacturer. A proposed sale to Hybrid Technologies is in the works.

In the meantime, Fisker filed court papers to try and block a second Chinese company, Wanxiang America Corporation, from trying to bid on the company.

A new hearing is scheduled for Jan. 10 at 9:30 a.m. Judge Kevin Gross will decide whether Fisker will move forward with its proposed sale to Hybrid Technologies or if Wanxiang will be allowed to put in a bid.
