VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) — The trustee in the bankruptcy liquidation case of a closed Vicksburg casino boat has requested that the vessel and some of its inventory be auctioned.

The Vicksburg Post reports ( that creditors of the closed Grand Station Casino will go before a court-appointed trustee on April 5 as the case proceeds.

Trustee Stephen Smith continued a creditors' meeting set Friday so attorneys for the closed casino's parent company could provide more answers about the facility's finances. The Grand Station closed March 28, 2012, and laid off 230 workers.

Smith has asked the court for permission to have the vessel auctioned on-site at 9 a.m. April 25.
