CHICAGO Oct 5 Caesars Entertainment Corp
will not have to face an imminent ruling on a lawsuit
that threatens last week's $5 billion agreement aimed at
extracting the casino company from a costly bankruptcy, a U.S.
bankruptcy judge said on Wednesday.
While a vast majority of Caesars creditors agreed to drop
legal claims against the casino group last week, a hedge fund
with a $9.4 million claim had refused to back the deal and
sought to pursue its lawsuit.
