(Sept. 2)—The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware Aug. 28 denied Federal-Mogul Corp.'s motion for an order authorizing it to negotiate a capital investment in the company with Citigroup Venture Capital Equity Partners L.P. Federal-Mogul disclosed the denial in a filing with the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission but did not say why it had been denied.
