Judge approves Fisker supplier claims settlement

DOVER, Del. — A Delaware bankruptcy judge is approving a settlement between electric car maker Fisker Automotive Inc. and its former battery supplier.

Fisker will be granted a $15 million unsecured claim on an initial claim of $48.7 million against A123 for breach of warranty. Fisker’s $91.2 million claim for rejection of its supply agreement with A123 will be disallowed.

Waltham, Mass.-based A123 went into bankruptcy protection in October, three years after being awarded a $249 million Energy Department grant.

Fisker, which has drawn $193 million of a $529 million Energy Department loan it received, is expected to seek bankruptcy protection as well within days.
