Bayou Group fraudster James Marquez’s sentencing on fraud charges has been postponed.

Marquez, who founded the collapsed Stamford, Conn.-based hedge fund with Samuel Israel, pleaded guilty to defrauding investors of more than $10 million last December. A federal judge in Manhattan rescheduled his sentencing hearing for Tuesday to allow attorney for both sides to settle issues raised by the defense last week.
