Freedom wanted to expedite the hearing before evidence is removed or destroyed because of a state order to dismantle storage tanks in Charleston. Under the Department of Environmental Protection order, Freedom has to start removing tanks by March 15.

The company also is looking to hire more lawyers and a financial adviser.

The spill contaminated the water for 300,000 people for days. After filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last month, Freedom was approved to borrow up to $4 million.
