Salyer American Fresh Foods and the banks suing it will have until July to sort out the details of the companyâs court-appointed receivership.
A Monterey County Superior Court judge agreed to delay a hearing until July 10 at the request of the attorneys for Salyer American, its lender, Bank of the West, and attorneys for receiver Steve Franson.
Bank of the West and two other lenders claim they are owed $35 million in unpaid loans from Salyer American. The company shut down May 22.
The next hearing was set for June 19 but the attorneys asked for extension to do more discovery, according to court documents.
Salyer American wants the court to approve selection of a new receiver because the company contends Franson overstepped his authority by dismissing more than a 1,000 Salyer American employees without proper notice in May.
