NEW YORK A federal judge
in Alabama has set a date to hear ThyssenKrupp Steel USA

steelmakers hot-strip mill in Calvert, Ala.
The hearing, to be held Jan. 3, will also address Austell,
Ga.-based United Forming Inc.s counterclaim that it is
owed about $19.4 million from the ThyssenKrupp AG subsidiary
