Delaware judge stays Caesars bankruptcy case

WILMINGTON, Del. (Reuters) - A U.S. Bankruptcy Court judge said on Thursday he would issue a modified stay order that would prevent the operating unit of Caesars Entertainment Corp from moving ahead as planned with its bankruptcy, filed earlier in the day in Chicago.

The operating unit's bankruptcy plan is opposed by junior noteholders, a group of large hedge funds, who filed an involuntary bankruptcy against the unit on Monday in Delaware.

Judge Kevin Gross in Wilmington, Delaware, said he expected his order would allow Caesars' operating unit to seek routine "first-day" orders on an interim basis, but not final orders.
