NEW YORK, Sept 22 (Reuters) - Citigroup Inc is set to return to court Friday as it seeks to have a U.S. judge reconsider an order barring it from processing payments on $8.4 billion in bonds issued under Argentina's local laws following its 2002 default.

U.S. District Judge Thomas Gries in New York on Monday scheduled the Friday hearing for 3 p.m. EDT (1900 GMT), a court official said. The hearing will come just days ahead of a Sept. 30 deadline for Citigroup to process a $5 million interest payment due to bondholders.
