Official creditors' committees have the right to employ legal and
accounting professionals and financial advisors, at the Debtor's
expense.  They may investigate the Debtor's business and financial
affairs.  Importantly, official committees serve as fiduciaries to
the general population of creditors they represent.  Those
committees will also Attnempt to negotiate the terms of a
consensual Chapter 11 plan -- almost always subject to the terms
of strict confidentiality agreements with the Debtors and other
core parties-in-interest.  If negotiations break down, the
Committee may ask the Bankruptcy Court to replace management with
an independent trustee.  If the Committee concludes reorganization
of the Debtor is impossible, the Committee will urge the
Bankruptcy Court to convert the Chapter 11 cases to a liquidation
proceeding.

San Francisco-based Anaverde intends to sell the project as part
of a liquidating Chapter 11 plan.  The project, the second phase
of a development, was to have 3,500 lots.  The property was
partially graded. No homes were built.

According to the Bloomberg report, the disclosure statement
explaining the Plan says that the lender stands to recover as much
as 16.4%.  The buyer will pay $20.25 million in cash and payments
over time, plus 25% of proceeds above $26 million from selling the
land over two years.  The lender is carving out $350,000 cash to
be divided among unsecured creditors under the Plan.

Papers filed along with the petition listed the assets for
$25.2 million against debt totaling $65.1 million.

--------------------------------------------------------------
Aura Systems, Inc., and subsidiaries reported a net loss of
$2,173,432 on net revenues of $1,160,577 for the three months

net revenues of $1,065,172 for the three months ended November 30,
2008.

The decrease in net loss for the third quarter of fiscal 2010 was
due to the higher gross profit recorded as a result of higher
sales levels, the reduction in selling, general and administrative
expenses, and the reduction in the third quarter interest charges.

The Company reported a net loss of $13,528,088 on net revenues of
$2,425,383 for the nine months ended November 30, 2009, compared
to a net loss of $7,384,720 on net revenues of $1,891,157 for the
nine months ended November 30, 2008.

                          Balance Sheet

At November 30, 2009, the Company's consolidated balance sheets
showed $5,402,658 in total assets and total liabilities of
$9,502,148, resulting in a $4,099,490 shareholders' deficit.

The Company's consolidated balance sheets at November 30, 2009,
also showed strained liquidity with $2,493,139 in total current
assets available to pay $9,002,148 in total current liabilities.

A full-text copy of the Company's quarterly report on Form 10-Q is

                       Going Concern Doubt

"The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on a
going concern basis which contemplates the realization of assets
and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of
business.

"During the nine month periods ended November 30, 2009, and 2008,
the Company incurred losses of $13,528,088 and $7,384,720,
respectively and had negative cash flows from operating activities
of $5,147,305 and $5,273,043, respectively.

"If the Company is unable to generate profits or continue to
obtain financing for its working capital requirements, it may have
to curtail its business sharply or cease business altogether."

AWESOME ACQUISITION: Restructuring Won't Move Moody's 'B2' Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service commented that Awesome Acquisition
Company, LP's current B2 corporate family rating and negative
outlook are not affected by the company's restructuring plan to
focus on franchisee support and guest experience.  Moody's views
this restructuring plan as a logical step in reaction to its
persistently pressured top line and worsening same store sales
trend experienced in 2009.

Moody's last rating action for Awesome occurred on March 9, 2009,
when its ratings outlook was changed to negative from stable.

Awesome Acquisition Company, LP, headquartered in Coppell, Texas,
is a holding company with two separate and distinct operations,
CiCi Enterprises and JMC Restaurant Distribution.  CiCi's is an
owner, operator and franchisor of CiCi's Pizza, a buffet style,
all you want, restaurant with a pizza centric menu.  JMC is the
distribution arm of the company and services CiCi's operation
exclusively.  The company's annual sales approximate $190 million.


BARE ESCENTUALS: Moody's Reviews 'Ba3' Corporate Family Rating
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's placed all of the ratings of Bare Escentuals, Inc.,
including the company's corporate family rating of Ba3, under
review for possible upgrade following its announcement that it had
signed a definitive agreement with Shiseido Co., Ltd to be
acquired for $1.7 billion through an all-cash tender offer and
second-step merger.  The transaction, which has been approved by
the Boards of Directors of both companies remains subject to a
number of conditions including the successful tender offer of the
shares held by a majority of the public shareholders and is
expected to close sometime in the first quarter of 2010.

Moody's review will focus on 1) whether or not amounts currently
outstanding under Bare's existing revolving credit and first lien
term loan remain outstanding after the proposed transaction is
completed and 2) if the debt remains outstanding, whether or not
Shiseido, rated Aa3 (under review for possible downgrade) would
legally assume the obligations.

These ratings of Bare were put under review for possible upgrade:

  -- Corporate family rating of Ba3;

  -- Probability of default rating of B1;

  -- $25 million secured first lien revolving credit of Ba3 due
     2011 (LGD 2, 29%)

  -- $230 million secured first lien term loan of Ba3 due 2011
     (LGD 2, 29%)

The last rating action regarding Bare was on September 3, 2008,
when Moody's upgraded the company's corporate family to Ba3 from
B1.

Bare Escentuals Beauty, Inc., with headquarters in San Francisco,
California is a leading marketer of cosmetics and skin products,
under the Bare Escentuals and MD Formulations brands.  Sales for
the last twelve months ended September 30, 2009, were
$540 million.

Shiseido Co., Ltd., rated Aa3 (under review for possible
downgrade) and headquartered in Tokyo, is a leading producer of
cosmetics and hair care products in Japan.  The company's
consolidated sales for FYE3/2009 were JPY690.3 billion.

BLOUNT INT'L: Expects to Report $502MM in Fiscal Year 2009 Sales
----------------------------------------------------------------
Blount International, Inc., estimates that sales for the fiscal
year ended December 31, 2009, will be roughly $502 million and
operating income will range between $54 million and $56 million.
The Company had previously estimated full year sales to range
between $480 million and $490 million and operating income to
range between $57 million and $60 million.  The revised operating
income range includes roughly $8.6 million in incremental non-
recurring expenses related to settlement of a certain litigation
matter on December 31, 2009, fees associated with the Company's
December refinancing activities and costs associated with the
transition of the Company's Chief Executive Officer.  The Company
had debt outstanding of $286 million and cash on hand of roughly
$55 million as of December 31, 2009.

Blount expects to report full year financial results by March 9,
2010.

Commenting on the revised outlook, Josh Collins, Chief Executive
Officer, stated:  "The year finished solidly for the Company, as
we recorded year-over-year sales growth of approximately 6% in the
fourth quarter when several geographical markets continued to
recover from the weakness experienced earlier in 2009.  Equally
encouraging is the Company's continued ability to generate cash,
as evidenced by a $24 million reduction in debt achieved during
the fourth quarter."

The Company also disclosed that its wholly owned subsidiary
Blount, Inc., and certain of its affiliates, and Fisher-Barton
Blades, Inc., located in Watertown, Wisconsin, have agreed to
settle all claims made in Fisher Barton Blades, Inc. v. Blount,
Inc., Dixon Industries and Frederick Manufacturing Corp., Case No.
05-C-460, in the United States District Court for the Eastern
District of Wisconsin.

Blount Inc. for itself and as successor by merger to Frederick
Manufacturing Corp. and Blount's subsidiary 4520 Corp., Inc., as
successor by merger to Dixon Industries, Inc., have agreed to
license U.S. Patent No.s 5,916,114 and 5,899,052, owned by Fisher-
Barton, as well as Fisher-Barton's "Marbain" trademark.  A
Confidential Settlement and License Agreement was executed on
December 31, 2009, and the Federal District Judge Randa entered an
Order Granting Voluntary Dismissal of all claims with prejudice on
January 5, 2010.

The terms of the Agreement remain confidential; however, Blount
did state that the Agreement calls for an initial payment, which
was made on January 4, 2010, and the entry into the patent and
trademark licenses whereby Blount has certain rights to use the
patents and trademark in exchange for the payment of specified
royalties over the term of the license.

                   Extension of Credit Facility

On December 7, 2009, Blount said it has amended and restated its
senior credit facility.  The primary terms amended include an
extension of the maturity from August 2010 until February 2012 for
the majority of amounts available under the facility, a reduction
in the borrowing capacity of the revolving credit facility from
$90 million to $60 million and an increase in interest rates
applicable to 96% of the $107.5 million of term loans outstanding.
Approximately $4 million of the existing term loans outstanding
will retain an August 2010 maturity date.  At the time of the
amendment and restatement, the Company had approximately

BROADWAY 401: DIP Financing, Cash Collateral Use Gets Interim Nod
------------------------------------------------------------------
Broadway 401 LLC, et al., sought and obtained interim
authorization from the Hon. Kevin J. Carey of the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the District of Delaware to incur postpetition secured
obligations from a syndicate of lenders led by PB Capital
Corporation, as lender and as senior agent for the lenders, and
use cash collateral.

The DIP lenders have committed to provide up to an aggregate
principal amount of $500,000 on an interim basis, and up to an
aggregate principal amount of $1,308,055 on a final basis.

Neil B. Glassman, Esq., and Jamie L. Edmonson, Esq., at Bayard
P.A., the attorneys for the Debtors, explain the Debtors need the
money to fund their Chapter 11 case, pay suppliers and other
parties.  The Debtors will also use the Cash Collateral to provide
additional liquidity.  The Debtors will use the collateral
pursuant to a budget, a copy of which is available for free at:

           http://bankrupt.com/misc/BROADWAY_budget.pdf

The initial approved budget may be modified or supplemented from
time to time by additional budgets as required by the amended
senior loan agreement

The Debtors will grant replacement liens on all DIP collateral
subject and junior only to the post-petition liens, and grant
security interests, liens, and superpriority claims and priming
liens in favor of the Senior Agent and the Senior Lenders, to
secure the postpetition obligations.

Interest, fees, and costs and expenses due on or after the
Petition Date to Senior Agent and/or Senior Lenders under the DIP
loan documents will be charged to the Debtors as required by the
applicable DIP loan documents and the Court's interim order.

A copy of the summary of DIP financing terms is available for free
at http://ResearchArchives.com/t/s?4d99

The amended senior loan agreement, and Senior Agent's and each
Senior Lender's willingness to permit the use of cash collateral
and to make DIP loans on February 25, 2010, if the Court hasn't
entered the Final Order, and on March 16, 2010, if the Court
hasn't approved the disclosure statement and confirmed the
reorganization plan.

The DIP collateral lien is subject to a carveout for U.S. Trustee
and Clerk of Court fees; up to $20,000 in fees payable to
professional employed in the Debtors' case and professionals
employed by the creditors' committee.

The Court has set a final hearing for February 16, 2010, at
4:00 p.m. on the Debtors' request to obtain DIP financing and use
cash collateral.

Kaye Scholer LLC represents the Senior Agent.

CABLEVISION SYSTEMS: Inks Registration Rights Deal with Dolan
-------------------------------------------------------------
Cablevision Systems Corporation on January 13, 2010, entered into
a registration rights agreement -- Dolan Registration Rights
Agreement -- with Charles F. Dolan, the Chairman of Cablevision,
and all other holders of Cablevision NY Group Class B Common Stock
(other than the Charles F. Dolan Children Trusts), the Dolan
Children's Foundation and the Dolan Family Foundation.
Cablevision will provide the parties to the Dolan Registration
Rights Agreement -- and, in certain cases, transferees and
pledgees of shares of Cablevision NY Group Class B Common Stock
owned by these parties -- with certain demand and piggyback
registration rights with respect to their shares of Cablevision NY
Group Class A Common Stock -- including those issued upon
conversion of shares of Cablevision NY Group Class B Common Stock.

The Dolan Parties own roughly 32.5 million shares of Cablevision
NY Group Class B Common Stock, which represent 59.8% of the
outstanding Cablevision NY Group Class B Common Stock as well as
3.4 million shares of Cablevision NY Group Class A Common Stock,
which represent 1.4% of the outstanding Cablevision NY Group Class
A Common Stock.  The shares of Cablevision NY Group Class B Common
Stock and Cablevision NY Group Class A Common Stock, collectively,
represent 11.9% of Cablevision's outstanding common stock and
41.5% of the aggregate voting power of Cablevision's outstanding
common stock.

The Charles F. Dolan Children Trusts and Cablevision also entered
into a registration rights agreement on January 13.  Cablevision
will provide the Children Trusts -- and, in certain cases,
transferees and pledgees of shares of Cablevision NY Group Class B
Common Stock owned by these parties -- with certain demand and
piggy-back registration rights with respect to their shares of
Cablevision NY Group Class A Common Stock -- including those
issued upon conversion of shares of Cablevision NY Group Class B
Common Stock.  The Children Trusts own 21.9 million shares of
Cablevision NY Group Class B Common Stock, which represent 40.2%
of the outstanding Cablevision NY Group Class B Common Stock, as
well as 1.1 million shares of Cablevision NY Group Class A Common
Stock, which represent 0.4% of the outstanding Cablevision NY
Group Class A Common Stock.  The shares of Cablevision NY Group
Class B Common Stock and Cablevision NY Group Class A Common
Stock, collectively, represent 7.6% of Cablevision's common stock
and 27.8% of the aggregate voting power of Cablevision's
outstanding common stock.

In the Children Trusts Registration Rights Agreement, each
Children Trust will agree that in the case of any sale or
disposition of its shares of Cablevision's NY Group Class B Common
Stock -- other than to Charles F. Dolan or other Dolan family
interests -- by such Children Trust, or of any of the Children
Trust Shares by any other Dolan family interest to which such
shares of Cablevision NY Group Class B Common Stock are
transferred, such stock will be converted to Cablevision NY Group
Class A Common Stock.  The Dolan Registration Rights Agreement
does not include a comparable conversion obligation, and the
conversion obligation in the Children Trusts Registration Rights
Agreement does not apply to the Dolan Shares.

Standard & Poor's said it lowered its issue-level rating on
Cablevision Systems Corp. (BB/Negative/--) subsidiary Newsday
LLC's $650 million senior secured credit facility due 2013, which
consists of a $525 million fixed-rate term loan and a $125 million
floating-rate term loan.  S&P is lowering the issue-level rating
on the loan to 'BB' from 'BB+' and removed it from CreditWatch,
where it was placed with negative implications on Feb. 9, 2009.
S&P also revised the recovery rating on the loan to '3' from '2'.
A '3' recovery rating indicates that lenders can expect meaningful
(50%-70%) recovery in the event of payment default.

The TCR reported on Sept. 11, 2009, Standard & Poor's affirmed the
'BB' corporate credit rating of Cablevision.  Cablevision has
around $11.8 billion of debt reported outstanding at June 30,
2009.  The outlook is negative.

Cablevision carries "Ba2" Corporate Family and Probability of
Default Ratings from Moody's.

CACI INTERNATIONAL: Moody's Gives Pos. Outlook, Keeps 'Ba2' Rating
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has changed the rating outlook of CACI
International, Inc., to positive from stable and upgraded the
senior secured bank debt rating to Baa3 from Ba1.  The Ba2
corporate family and probability of default, and the SGL-1
speculative grade liquidity ratings have been affirmed.

The outlook change reflects CACI's growing scale, sustained
moderate leverage, good cash flow and likelihood that demand from
the U.S. Department of Defense, particularly the Army, should
remain strong through 2011.  Since FY2005 CACI has spent
approximately $700 million on acquisitions as the company has
become a more entrenched supplier of information management and
systems engineering/support services to the U.S. Government.  The
company's enlarged scale and proven performance during the
Iraq/Afghanistan conflicts have deepened its position as a solid,
prime DoD contractor and have helped improve credit profile
resilience.  The positive outlook also notes that CACI's new focus
on expanding its federal health and energy business lines may
enable greater revenue diversity in the future.  Greater revenue
diversity could help CACI to avoid a gradual growth decline that
may impact heavily defense-focused contractors in coming years.
The outlook acknowledges CACI's acquisition spending, which has
been low over the past 18 months, will likely resume.  Continued
strong free cash flow generation to supplement acquisition debt
may still help the company achieve the greater size and return
levels needed to support a higher rating.

The Ba2 corporate family rating reflects strong metrics for the
rating category that coincide with the defense sector's current
demand peak.  However, since FY2005 margins have steadily
declined.  Therefore, even though internal cash flow generation
partially funded acquisition spending, total return gains have not
accompanied greater scale.  As well, the U.S. government's fiscal
budget forecasts declining defense spending growth rates beginning
in FY2011.  In Moody's view, as combat-related demand ebbs from
high levels, federal fiscal deficits and renewed focus on
procurement practices and conflicts of interest could represent
new margin challenges for DoD contractors such as CACI.  These
factors support the continued Ba2 corporate family rating despite
relatively strong credit metrics.

The rating on CACI's senior secured debt has been upgraded to Baa3
from Ba1 due to lower senior secured debt in the capital structure
following a recent $50 million term loan prepayment, and pursuant
to Moody's Loss Given Default Methodology.

Potential for upward rating momentum will depend on an expectation
that revenues could grow to the $4 billion level with EBITDA
margin above 10%, a good liquidity profile, and maximum leverage,
including acquisitions, in the low 3.0 times range (Moody's
adjusted basis).  Downward rating momentum, not currently
anticipated, could develop if margins continue to decline with
leverage exceeding the 4.0 times level; if the company's ability
to convert its earnings to cash flow materially weakens or; if
return on assets declines below 2.0%.

The speculative grade liquidity rating of SGL-1 continues to
reflect a strong liquidity profile.  Liquidity profile strength
stems from a high cash balance and internal cash flow level
relative to near term debt service and other required spending
needs.  Ample financial covenant compliance headroom under the
company's senior secured credit facility exists which suggests
high probability of continued access to CACI's undrawn $240
million revolver.  Moody's notes that in May 2011 the revolver and
the $280 million term loan mature which could bring downward
pressure on the SGL-1 rating.  The SGL-1 rating affirmation
assumes that the term loan will not become a near-term liability
without a growing cash balance or a larger, multi-year source of
committed liquidity.

Ratings upgraded:

* $240 million senior secured revolver due May 2011 to Baa3 LGD 2,
  21% from Ba1 LGD 2, 23%

* $280 million senior secured term loan B due May 2011 to Baa3 LGD
  2, 21% from Ba1 LGD 2, 23%

Ratings affirmed:

* Corporate family and probability of default Ba2
* Speculative grade liquidity SGL-1

Moody's last rating action on CACI occurred May 2007 when the Ba2
corporate family rating was affirmed.

CACI International Inc, based in Arlington, VA, provides
information technology services and solutions for the U.S.
Department of Defense, federal civilian agencies, the government
of the United Kingdom as well as large commercial enterprises and
state and local governments.  Last twelve months ended September
2009 revenues were $2.8 billion.

CANWEST GLOBAL: Grafstein et al. Plan to Bid for 3 Daily Papers
---------------------------------------------------------------
Jerry Grafstein, a retired senator in Canada, told Bloomberg News
in an interview that his team plans to bid for the National Post,
Montreal Gazette and Ottawa Citizen, three daily newspapers owned
by Canwest Global Communications Corp.

Bloomberg's Doug Alexander says Mr. Grafstein's investor group
includes Quebec editor Beryl Wajsman and media consultant Raymond
Heard.

Ontario Superior Court Judge Sarah Pepall has approved a sale
process for Canwest's publications.  Bloomberg notes the court-
appointed monitor overseeing the sale will only consider bids for
all or "substantially all" of the assets.

"If the courts say no, the courts say no," Mr. Grafstein told
Bloomberg.  "But the courts will be looking at everything and see
what's valuable and what's not."

Mr. Grafstein told Bloomberg his group is preparing an application
to review Canwest's finances, the first step in making a bid.  Mr.
Grafstein said they have "very strong financial support."  Mr.
Grafstein, however, declined to name the investors.

"I believe that there's a future for newspapers if they have
strong roots in each of their communities and they're locally
owned and controlled and they can marry it with the Internet," Mr.
Grafstein, 75, who retired from the Senate this month, told
Bloomberg.

CATHOLIC CHURCH: Associated Press Intervenes in Delaware Case
-------------------------------------------------------------
On October 19, 2009, James E. Sheehan filed a request for relief
from the automatic stay to allow his abuse action filed in January
2008 to continue to trial and judgment.  Subsequently, he and the
Catholic Diocese of Wilmington, Inc., entered into a compromise
and settlement agreement with respect to his action.  The Diocese
also sought and obtained authority to file Mr. Sheehan's
settlement amount under seal.

By this motion, The Associated Press seeks authority from the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware to intervene in the
bankruptcy case to obtain access to judicial records and
proceedings.  AP also asks the Court to vacate the order sealing
Mr. Sheehan's settlement amount.

Jeffrey M. Schlerf, Esq., at Fox Rothschild LLP, in Wilmington,
Delaware, contends that a "court may properly consider a motion to
intervene permissively for the limited purpose of modifying a
protective order," citing Pansy v. Stroudsburg, 23 F.3d 772, 779
(3d Cir. 1994).  He asserts that the public's right to access
judicial records is well-established.  He adds that in bankruptcy
jurisprudence, a Chapter 11 reorganization proceeding is an open
book and all records filed in that proceeding are generally
accessible to the public.

Mr. Schlerf argues that the settlement amount is not confidential
commercial information because it is not an information "that is
so critical to an entity's operations that disclosing the
information will unfairly benefit that entity's competitors."  He
points out that the Seal Order should be vacated and the
Settlement Amount disclosed because the Settlement Amount in the
hands of the Diocese's competitors will not result in injury to
the Diocese's commercial operations.

                         *     *     *

Judge Sontchi allowed AP to intervene in the bankruptcy case for
the purpose of accessing judicial records and proceedings.  He
also vacated the order sealing the Sheehan Settlement Amount, and
directed the Diocese to file a notice setting forth that amount.

Hence, the Diocese revealed in a notice that the Settlement Amount
is $17,500.

                  About the Diocese of Wilmington

The Diocese of Wilmington covers Delaware and the Eastern Shore of
Maryland and serves about 230,000 Catholics.  The Delaware diocese
is the seventh Roman Catholic diocese to file for Chapter 11
protection to deal with lawsuits for sexual abuse.  Previous

San Diego, California.

The bankruptcy filing automatically stayed eight consecutive abuse
trials scheduled in Delaware scheduled to begin October 19.  There
are 131 cases filed against the Diocese, with 30 scheduled for
trial.

The Diocese filed for Chapter 11 on Oct. 18, 2009 (Bankr. D. Del.

CENTRAL METAL: Asks for Court's Permission to Use Cash Collateral
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Central Metal, Inc., seeks authority from the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Central District of California to use the cash
collateral from January 16, 2010, until February 27, 2010,
securing their obligation to their prepetition lenders.

As of the Petition Date, the Debtor owes Center Bank $16.3 million
and KEB LA Financial Corp. $900,000.

Monica Y. Kim and Juliet Y. Oh at Levene, Neale, Bender, Rankin &
Brill L.L.P., the attorneys for the Debtor, explains that the
Debtor needs the money to fund its Chapter 11 case, purchase
additional scrap metal to replenish sold inventory, and to pay
suppliers and other parties.  The Debtors will use the collateral
pursuant to a budget, a copy of which is available for free at:

        http://bankrupt.com/misc/CENTRAL_METAL_budget.pdf

The Debtor is asking that it be permitted to use cash collateral
in accordance with the Budget, subject to a permitted deviance of
up to 10% of the total expenses for any week, with any unused
portions to be carried over into the following week.

In exchange for using the cash collateral, the Debtor proposes to
grant secured creditors replacement liens against the Debtor's
assets, with the replacement lien to have the same extent,
validity, and priority as the pre-petition lien held by the
creditors.  The Debtor says that the existing personal guaranty by
Jong Uk Byun provides further adequate protection.  The real
property upon which the Debtor runs its facilities is either owned
by the Debtor or by the Debtor's principal, Jong Uk Byun.

Huntington Park, California-based Central Metal, Inc., is a fully
integrated scrap metal processing company that purchases,
processes and sells ferrous and non-ferrous metals domestically
and internationally.  The Company is one of the largest processing
companies on the West Coast, has one of the largest land sites and

portfolio that entails dynamic trading relationships with renowned

The Company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on
January 8, 2010 (Bankr. C.D. Calif. Case No. 10-10642).  Juliet Y.
Oh, Esq., who has an office in Los Angeles, California, assists
the Company in its restructuring effort.  The Company listed
$10,000,001 to $50,000,000 in assets and $10,000,001 to
$50,000,000 in liabilities.


CHARTER COMMUNICATIONS: Unions Find Holes in Reorganization Plan
----------------------------------------------------------------
Reorganized Charter Communications Inc. filed a motion before the
Bankruptcy Court to enforce the reorganization plan which contains
provisions giving releases to officers and directors.

Charter wants the Bankruptcy Court to enter an order enforcing the
injunction in the Confirmed Plan of Reorganization against
commencing or continuing any causes of action against the Iron
Workers Local No. 25 Pension Fund, Indiana Laborers Fund, and Iron
Workers District Council of Western New York and Vicinity Pension
Fund, as court-appointed Lead Plaintiffs in the action styled Iron
Workers Local No. 25 Pension Fund v. Allen, et al., Case No. 4:09-
cv-00405-JLH (E.D. Ark.).

The three union pension funds believe they have the right to sue
officers and directors of Charter Communications.  The pension
plans contend the Plan, which became effective November, doesn't
apply to them because they sold their stock before the plan was
confirmed.

Charter counters that the unions' suggestion to reopen that
they are not "interest" holders, merely because they sold their
stock after Charter entered chapter 11 proceedings but before the
"record date," is absurd.  Under that approach, a party seeking to
circumvent a proposed release could simply dispose of its security
interests prior to a plan's effective date, Charter pointed out.

Charter's motion is scheduled for hearing on Jan. 26.

The class-action plaintiffs are represented by Coughlin Stoia
Geller Rudman & Robbins LLP.

CITIGROUP INC: Reports $1.6 Billion Full Year 2009 Net Loss
-----------------------------------------------------------
Citigroup Inc. on Tuesday reported a full year 2009 net loss of
$1.6 billion, or $0.80 per share.  Managed revenues were $91.1
billion for the year.  The fourth quarter 2009 net loss was $7.6
billion, or $0.33 per share.  Excluding the $6.2 billion after-tax
loss associated with TARP repayment and exiting the loss-sharing
agreement, the fourth quarter net loss was $1.4 billion or $0.06
per share.

Citigroup reported a net loss of $27.6 billion for the full year
2008.

The provision for loan losses in the fourth quarter was $8.2
billion, down 36% from the prior year and 10% from the prior
quarter.

"We have made enormous progress in 2009," said Vikram Pandit,
Chief Executive Officer of Citigroup.  "It was our responsibility
to get our own house in order.  We greatly improved Citi's capital
strength, reduced the size and scope of the company, and refocused
our business strategy to take advantage of our unmatched global
network.  We created Citi Holdings to rationalize non-strategic
businesses, totally overhauled risk management, cut costs by over
$13 billion annually, reduced headcount by 100,000, and reduced
assets by $500 billion from peak levels.  And to take advantage of
all these changes, we assembled a talented new management team
focused on the new Citicorp franchise to move us forward.

"We also completed the repayment of $20 billion invested in the
company by the U.S. government through the Troubled Asset Relief
Program (TARP) and exited the loss-sharing agreement with the
government," said Mr. Pandit.  "As we enter 2010, we are strongly
capitalized, significantly more efficient, and are executing on a
clear strategy that is focused on clients.  With the commitment
and dedication of our people, we have created a strong foundation
for the future."

Mr. Pandit concluded: "In the near term, we will continue to focus
on sustainable profitability and growth, and supporting the global
economic recovery.  I believe we are positioned for long-term
success, and have a strategy that combines our international
footprint, global talent and unique capabilities to serve our
clients and customers here and around the world.  We serve nearly
every Fortune 500 company and 85% of the top global companies,
enabling liquidity and capital flows by providing the financial
infrastructure that facilitates these companies' international
operations.  Citi is one of the great franchises in financial
services, and with our renewed financial strength and strategy, we
can now completely focus on executing this strategy."

Commenting on Citi's financial results, John Gerspach, Chief
Financial Officer of Citigroup, said: "We have made significant
progress in 2009. While the environment continues to be
challenging, we have a strong capital base and client franchise.
Although we remain cautious and continue to monitor the future
impacts of our current loss mitigation efforts, we continue to see
indications that credit may be stabilizing or improving,
particularly in Asia and Latin America."

                          Key Highlights

     -- Citigroup 2009 managed revenues increased 49% to
        $91.1 billion, up from $61.2 billion in 2008 reflecting,
        in part, the absence of significant marks taken in 2008.

     -- Full year operating expenses declined 31% to
        $47.8 billion.  Excluding goodwill impairments and
        restructuring/repositioning charges recorded in 2008,
        operating expenses were down 15%.

     -- Fourth quarter managed revenues were $7.9 billion, or
        $17.9 billion excluding a $10.1 billion pre-tax loss
        associated with the TARP repayment and exiting the loss
       -sharing agreement, down from $23.1 billion in the third
        quarter, which included a $1.4 billion pre-tax gain from
        the extinguishment of debt associated with the exchange
        offers.

     -- Fourth quarter net credit losses of $7.1 billion were down
        $800 million from the prior quarter, marking the second
        consecutive quarter of improvement. Managed net credit
        losses were $10.0 billion, down from $11.0 billion in the
        prior quarter.

     -- Fourth quarter net loan loss reserve build was $700
        million.  For the year, the company added a net build of
        $8.0 billion to the allowance for loan losses. The
        allowance for loan losses was $36.0 billion at year-end,
        or 6.1% of total loans.

     -- Citicorp full year revenues outside the North America
        region were $41 billion, 68% of total Citicorp revenues.

     -- Citi Holdings assets declined $70 billion to $547 billion
        during the quarter and were down $351 billion from peak
        levels in the first quarter of 2008.

     -- Citi completed 14 divestitures in Citi Holdings in 2009,
        including Smith Barney, Nikko Cordial Securities and Nikko
        Asset Management.

     -- Regional Consumer Banking (RCB) deposits grew $31 billion
        or 12% in 2009. Full year managed revenues declined 6% to
        $29 billion, reflecting an 11% decline in average assets
        versus 2008.  This revenue decline was more than offset by
        expense declines of 12% (excluding a fourth quarter 2008
        goodwill impairment). High credit costs continued to
        affect financial results.

     -- RCB full year revenues outside the North America region
        were $15.5 billion, 68% of total RCB revenues.

     -- Securities and Banking (S&B) 2009 revenues were $29.4
        billion, excluding credit value adjustments (CVA), up 23%
        versus 2008.  Fourth quarter revenues (excluding CVA) were
        $5.4 billion, down from $6.6 billion in the third quarter,
        and up from $5.1 billion in the fourth quarter of 2008.

     -- Transaction Services 2009 net income was $3.7 billion, up
        12% versus 2008 on revenues of $9.8 billion.

     -- Firmwide deposits were $836 billion, up $62 billion from
        the prior year and $3 billion from the prior quarter.

Citigroup fourth quarter revenues were $5.4 billion, or $15.5
billion excluding the loss on the repayment of TARP and exiting
the loss-sharing agreement, down from $20.4 billion in the prior
quarter which included a $1.4 billion gain from the extinguishment
of debt associated with the exchange offers.

Citicorp fourth quarter revenues were $11.7 billion, down from
$13.0 billion in the prior quarter.  Managed revenues were $13.4
billion, down from $14.8 billion in the prior quarter.  Excluding
the impact of CVA in each quarter, managed revenues were down
approximately 7% sequentially, due primarily to declines in S&B
revenues.

Citi Holdings fourth quarter revenues were $4.7 billion versus
$6.7 billion in the prior quarter.  Managed revenues were $5.5
billion during the quarter, down from $7.6 billion in the prior
quarter.  Key drivers of the decline included lower positive net
revenue marks within the Special Asset Pool (SAP) of $200 million
versus $1.5 billion in the prior quarter (see Appendix A), as well
as the prior quarter's $300 million pre-tax gain on the sale of
Citigroup's Managed Futures business, and lower net interest
revenue within Local Consumer Lending. SAP asset sales of
approximately $10 billion resulted in $800 million of pre-tax
gains during the quarter.

During 2009, Citi provided $458 billion in new credit in the U.S.
Since the start of the U.S. housing crisis in 2007, Citi has
worked with more than 715,000 homeowners to help them avoid
potential foreclosure.  Citi completed 130,000 mortgage loan
modifications during 2009.  In addition, Citi established more
than 119,000 trial modifications during the year under the Home
Affordable Modification Program or its own proprietary
modification program.  Citi is also currently helping more than
1.5 million credit card members to manage their card debt through
a variety of forbearance programs.  The company has remained
committed to long-standing programs that provide small and mid-
sized companies access to credit to grow their businesses.  Citi
has provided over $4.5 billion of new (and renewed) credit to
small and mid-sized businesses in 2009.

                            Net Income

Citigroup's net loss was $7.6 billion in the fourth quarter versus
$100 million of net income in the third quarter.  Excluding the
impact of the TARP repayment and exiting the loss-sharing
agreement in the fourth quarter and the gain on debt
extinguishment associated with the exchange offers in the third
quarter, net income was lower by $600 million sequentially.  The
impact of the TARP repayment, exiting of the loss-sharing
agreement and the gain on debt extinguishment were recorded in the
Corporate/Other segment.

Citicorp fourth quarter net income was $1.7 billion, down from
$2.3 billion from the prior quarter, as declines in S&B revenues
and higher operating expenses were partially offset by sequential
declines in credit costs across businesses. Income growth in Asia
and Latin America was offset by declines in North America and
EMEA.

Citi Holdings fourth quarter net loss was $2.5 billion versus a
loss of $1.9 billion in the prior quarter as a sequential decline
in credit costs was more than offset by a reduction in positive
revenue marks, lower net interest revenue and the absence of the
$200 million after-tax gain on the sale of Citigroup's Managed
Futures business in the quarter.

Corporate/Other fourth quarter revenues were negative $11.0
billion down from positive $700 million in the prior quarter, due
to the $10.1 billion pre-tax loss on the TARP repayment and
exiting the loss-sharing agreement, and the prior quarter's $1.4
billion pre-tax gain from the extinguishment of debt associated
with the exchange offers.

                           Balance Sheet

As of December 31, 2009, total assets were $1.85 trillion, down 2%
from the third quarter reflecting business dispositions and asset
sales within Citi Holdings.  During the quarter approximately $46
billion of cash and deposits with banks were redeployed into
liquid securities held in the available-for-sale portfolio.  Total
liabilities were $1.70 trillion.

                          Bonus Payments

The New York Times says Citigroup plans to hand out large bonus
checks in the coming weeks.  The NY Times notes Bank employees, on
average, took home about $94,000 in bonus pay last year, slightly
less than the $96,000 average in 2008.  NY Times says top
investment bankers and traders, however, could receive bonuses
worth at least several million dollars.  Over all, the bank paid a
total of $25 billion in compensation, about 20% less than in 2008
although the company has almost 100,000 fewer employees.

NY Times also notes Citigroup's results were in sharp contrast
with those of JPMorgan Chase, which has reported earnings of $11.7
billion in 2009, more than double its profit in 2008.  JPMorgan
earned $3.3 billion in the fourth quarter alone.

                          About Citigroup

Based in New York, Citigroup Inc. (NYSE: C) -- is a global
diversified financial services holding company whose businesses
provide a broad range of financial services to consumer and
corporate customers.  Citigroup has roughly 200 million customer
accounts and does business in more than 140 countries.
Citigroup's businesses are aligned in three reporting segments:
(i) Citicorp, which consists of Regional Consumer Banking (in
North America, EMEA, Asia, and Latin America) and the
Institutional Clients Group (Securities and Banking, including the
Private Bank, and Transaction Services); (ii) Citi Holdings, which
consists of Brokerage and Asset Management, Local Consumer
Lending, and a Special Asset Pool; and (iii) Corporate/Other.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on November 25, 2008,
the U.S. government entered into an agreement with Citigroup to
provide a package of guarantees, liquidity access, and capital.
The U.S. Treasury and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation
agreed to provide protection against the possibility of unusually
large losses on an asset pool of roughly $306 billion of loans and
securities backed by residential and commercial real estate and
other such assets, which will remain on Citigroup's balance sheet.
As a fee for this arrangement, Citigroup issued preferred shares
to the Treasury and FDIC.  The Federal Reserve agreed to backstop
residual risk in the asset pool through a non-recourse loan.

Citigroup, the third-biggest U.S. bank, received $45 billion in
bailout aid.  Other bailed-out banks, including Bank of America
Corp., Wells Fargo & Co., have pledged to repay TARP money.
JPMorgan Chase & Co., Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Morgan Stanley,
repaid TARP funds in June.  Citigroup is selling assets to repay
the bailout funds.

Citigroup is one of the banks that, according to results of the
government's stress test, need more capital.

COASTAL CONCRETE II: Completes Out-of-Court Restructuring of Debt
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Coastal Concrete II LLC, a South Carolina-based manufacturer of
ready-made concrete for the residential and commercial markets,
has successfully completed an out-of-court financial restructuring
of its senior and mezzanine debt facilities and equity.  The
investment banking group of Carl Marks Advisory Group LLC (CMAG)
served as financial advisor to the bank group.

GE Commercial Finance retained CMAG as agent for its senior lender
group to develop and implement a balance sheet restructuring,
enhancing the company's ability to service its long-standing
customer base, as well as expand in the future.

Acquired by Park Avenue Equity Partners LP in 2007, Coastal
Concrete supplies ready-made concrete to customers primarily in
South Carolina and Georgia.  In business since 1985, the company
operates 12 permanent concrete plants and one mobile concrete
facility.  Although the Southeast has been a leading area for
construction in the United States, the recent downturn in
construction resulting from poor economic conditions severely
impacted the company's operations.

CMAG managed Coastal Concrete's restructuring process, rightsizing
the capital structure to improve future liquidity for the company.
As a result of the restructuring, Coastal Concrete has developed
into a much stronger company.

"Coastal Concrete has served the construction market in the
Southeast for more than two decades and is very important to the
region's economy, employing a significant number of individuals,"
said Warren H. Feder, partner at CMAG.  "The company's exceptional
management team was key to the restructuring success.  They went
to great lengths to ensure that the employees and their families
will continue to have the opportunity to grow with Coastal.  Being
part of that experience has meant a great deal to the Carl Marks
team."

The successful reorganization, combined with the nascent signs for
recovery in the Southeast's construction market, positions Coastal
Concrete for an optimistic future, Feder added.

DISH NETWORK: Court Awards $51 Million in Anti-Piracy Case
----------------------------------------------------------
DISH Network L.L.C., EchoStar Technologies L.L.C. and NagraStar
said a Florida federal court issued a $51 million judgment against
Robert Ward, who posted software on the Internet that allowed
individuals to illegally receive DISH Network programming using
Free-To-Air receivers.

In the summary judgment decision, the court made two significant
holdings that will strengthen the companies' ability to pursue
pirates in the future.  The court held that the posting of pirate
software constitutes a violation of the Federal Communications
Act, and that statutory damages should be calculated based on how
many individuals downloaded the pirate software.

"This is a significant victory in our effort to eradicate piracy
of the DISH Network system. We thank the court for its well-
reasoned analysis," said Pascal Lenoir, CEO of NagraStar.

On December 22, 2009, Exelixis entered into Amendment No. 9 to the

only draw advances under Facility D through December 31, 2009.  As
a result of Amendment No. 9, the Company may now draw advances
under Facility D through June 30, 2011.

In connection with the extension of the term, the size of the
facility was increased to $33,621,220 from $30,000,000. This
resulted in an increase in the amount of available funds under
Facility D to $15,000,000 as of December 22, 2009, after giving
effect to prior advances under Facility D.  The Company is
required to borrow advances under Facility D in a minimum amount

EQUINOX HOLDINGS: Moody's Assigns 'B1' Rating on $400 Mil. Notes
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B1 rating to Equinox
Holdings, Inc.'s proposed $400 million of senior secured notes due
2016.  Concurrently, Moody's also affirmed Equinox's B3 corporate
family rating and B3 probability of default rating.  Proceeds from
the proposed senior secured note offering, along with proceeds
from a proposed HoldCo PIK notes issuance and balance sheet cash,
will be used to refinance all of the company's existing debt and
pay related fees and expenses.  The rating outlook remains stable.

Moody's believes that Equinox's stable financial performance and
good execution over the last year has strengthened its position
within the B3-ratings level and demonstrated the resiliency of its
operating model.  However, the rating is still constrained by
company's relatively modest interest coverage and cash flow
generation as well as its exposure to weak discretionary spending
trends amidst a still very challenging macro environment.  The
rating is also constrained by Equinox's high geographic
concentration and continued dependence, albeit improved from
historic levels, on a limited number of clubs in the New York area
for greater than 50% of the company's revenues and profitability.
The rating derives support from the favorable long-term growth
fundamentals for the fitness industry and Moody's expectation of
improved profitability due to the maturation of clubs built by
Equinox in the last few years.

These ratings were assigned:

* $400 million of Senior Secured Notes due 2016 -- B1 (LGD 3, 32%)

The ratings on the proposed notes are subject to Moody's
satisfactory review of the final documentation.

These ratings were affirmed:

* Corporate Family Rating at B3;
* Probability of Default Rating at B3;

Upon closing of the proposed transaction and repayment of existing
debt, Moody's will withdraw these ratings:

* $290 million of 9.25% Senior Unsecured Notes due 2012 -- B2 (LGD
  3, 38%)

The last rating action was on September 22, 2006 when Moody's
upgraded the rating on Equinox's 9.25% senior unsecured notes due
2012 to B2 from B3 as per Moody's Loss Given Default methodology.

Headquartered in New York, Equinox Holdings, Inc., is an operator
of high-end full-service fitness clubs that offer an integrated
selection of Equinox-branded programs, services and products.  The
company operated 50 fitness clubs in the U.S. as of December 2009.
In February 2006, the company was acquired by Related Companies,
L.P., a New York limited partnership, in a leveraged buyout for
approximately $520 million.  Revenues for the twelve month period
ended September 30, 2009, were approximately $344 million.


ERICKSON RETIREMENT: Capmark Wants Panel Disbanded as to Littleton
------------------------------------------------------------------
Capmark Finance, Inc., N.A., as administrative and collateral
agent for itself and certain lenders that provided construction
financing to Debtor Littleton Campus, LLC, asks the Court to
disband the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors in
Littleton Campus' bankruptcy case.

Monica S. Blacker, Esq., at Mintz Levin Cohn Ferris Glovsky and
Popeo, PC, in Boston, Massachusetts, points out that there is no
role for a committee of unsecured creditors in connection with
Littleton Campus.  For one, she notes, no member of the existing
Creditors Committee is a creditor of Littleton Campus and thus,
the Committee cannot be considered representing the interests of
the creditors of Littleton Campus.  In this light, the Creditors
Committee lacks standing to participate Littleton Campus' Chapter
11 case and thus, should be disbanded, Ms. Blacker insists.

Ms. Blacker adds that although the U.S. Trustee for Region 6
reconstituted the composition of the Creditors Committee on
January 8, 2010, it does not solve the problem.  She states that
Morgan Stanley, a member of the Committee, is not a creditor of
Littleton Campus, but an affiliate of the holder of a potential
claim against Littleton Campus.  Thus, Morgan Stanley is not
eligible to serve on the Creditors Committee, she insists.

Littleton Campus' schedules of assets and liabilities reflect
that the scheduled unsecured claims total $47,361.  Thus, at the
very most, the interests the Creditors Committee is allegedly
representing hold claims against Littleton Campus in the maximum
amount of $47,361, as compared to the total aggregate scheduled
unsecured claims against all of the Debtors, which exceed
$35 million, Ms. Blacker points out.

In addition, Ms. Blacker notes that given the amount of claims
held by Capmark as well as the right of Capmark to receive the
distributions, over 99% of any amounts recovered by the Committee
will revert back to Capmark.

Ms. Blacker also argues that the Committee has taken a very
litigious role in Littleton Campus' Chapter 11 case.  As these
actions cannot result in any meaningful recovery to the unsecured
creditors allegedly represented by the Committee, the only effect
that the actions of the Committee are likely to have is to
unnecessarily increase the cost of administration, she asserts.

Since the Committee must be disbanded as to Littleton Campus'
Chapter 11 case, no fees or costs, including attorneys' fees, may
be awarded to the Committee or its counsel in Littleton Campus'
Chapter 11 case, Ms. Blacker insists.

ERICKSON RETIREMENT: PNC Wants Panel Disbanded as to 5 Debtors
--------------------------------------------------------------
Pursuant to Rules 2022 and 9014 of the Federal Rules of
Bankruptcy Procedure, PNC Bank, National Association, in its
capacity as administrative agent for various senior secured
project lenders, asks the Court to disband the Official Committee
of the Unsecured Creditors in the bankruptcy cases of five
Project Debtors:

   (1) Novi Campus LLC
   (2) Houston Campus, L.P.
   (3) Kansas Campus, LLC
   (4) Ashburn Campus LLC
   (5) Concord Campus, LP

PNC Bank further asks the Court to:

   (i) declare null and void and of no force and effect all acts
       taken by the Creditors Committee in the Project Debtors'
       Chapter 11 cases; and

  (ii) bar the Creditors Committee and its counsel from
       receiving any expense reimbursement or compensation,
       including attorneys' fees, from the assets of the
       Debtors.

PNC Bank complains that none of the Committee members is a
prepetition unsecured creditor of the Project Debtors or a person
representing a prepetition unsecured creditor as their appointed
agent.

Specifically, five members of the Committee are unsecured
creditors of other Debtors whose Chapter 11 cases have been
administratively consolidated with the Chapter 11 cases of the
Project Debtors, Daniel I. Morenoff, Esq., at K&L Gates LLP, in
Dallas, Texas, discloses.  Another Committee member, Morgan
Stanley is not a creditor of any type, which at most is an
affiliate of three special purpose entities that, depending on
Debtors Dallas Campus, LP, Kansas Campus, LLC, or Littleton
Campus LLC, are either a subordinated secured creditor or a
purported ground lessor.

In this light, the Creditors Committee is illegally constituted
and its appointment violated Section 1102(a) of the Bankruptcy
Code, Mr. Morenoff asserts.  Section 1102 does not permit persons
who are not creditors of the debtor to be a member of the
committee, he explains.

Moreover, Mr. Morenoff reminds the Court that the Creditors
Committee has taken various actions in or affecting the Project
Debtors' Chapter 11 cases, including a motion asking the Court to
hold that PNC Bank does not have a continuing security interest
in postpetition Initial Entrance Deposits due to Section 552(a)
of the Bankruptcy Code.  These actions of the Creditors Committee
are illegal and ultra vires and are null and void, he argues.
"Unless the Committee is promptly disbanded in the Project
Debtors' Chapter 11 cases, the Committee can be expected to take
additional illegal and ultra vires actions that dissipate the
resources of the Project Debtors' estates and impede an effective
reorganization and confirmation of a plan from occurring," he
says.

Mr. Morenoff further contends that the illegal composition of the
Creditors Committee and the ultra vires actions of its counsel
preclude any compensation or expense reimbursement of the
Committee or its counsel from the assets of the Project Debtors.
PNC Bank thus objects to a surcharge of its collateral to pay any
fees or expenses incurred by the illegally constituted Creditors
Committee.

The Court will hold a hearing on February 5, 2010, to consider
the Motions to Disband.

ERICKSON RETIREMENT: Says Sec. 1104 Examiner Unnecessary
--------------------------------------------------------
Erickson Retirement Communities LLC and its units allege that the
joint request of Strategic Ashby Ponds Lender LLC; Strategic
Concord Landholder, LP; HCP ER6, LP; HCP ER2, LP; HCP ER3, LP;
MSRESS III Dallas Campus, L.P.; MSRES III Denver Campus, LLC; and
MSRESS III Kansas Campus, L.P., for the appointment of an examiner
under Section 1104 of the Bankruptcy Code in the Debtors' Chapter
11 cases is a transparent attempt by constituencies who are
seeking to exercise hold up leverage to delay the progress of
these Chapter 11 cases and extort a settlement, which does not
reflect their economic interests.

Several mezzanine lenders have asked the Bankruptcy Court to
appoint an examiner in the Chapter 11 cases of Erickson Retirement
Communities LLC.  The mezzanine lenders say Erickson needs an
examiner for "evaluating the merits of pursuing the proposed
auction" where the first bid will come from Redwood Capital
Investors LLC.  They say the sale and the reorganization plan to
implement the transfer are "perhaps wholly illegal."

Counsel to the Debtors, Vincent P. Slusher, Esq., at DLA Piper
LLP, in Dallas, Texas, asserts that none of the other Debtors
have fixed, liquidated, unsecured debt exceeding $5 million
pursuant to Section 1104(c)(3).  He reminds the Court that the
Debtors recently filed an Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization
and Disclosure Statement and are seeking to close a sale
transaction with Redwood Capital Investments LLC.  In this light,
there is no need to accommodate the Mezzanine Lenders' request,
which will only be burdensome, costly, and will interfere with
the Debtors' reorganization efforts, he insists.

Moreover, as the legitimate rights of the Mezzanine Lenders have
been preserved, there is no need for an examiner to protect their
interests, Mr. Slusher contends.  The Mezzanine Lenders'
dissatisfaction with the fact that they are not receiving a
greater share of the proceeds under the Amended Plan because they
are contractually subordinated, is not a sufficient ground to
saddle the Debtors' estates with the cost of an examiner with
sweeping powers, he maintains.

The Debtors thus ask the Court to deny the Examiner Motion.

Should the Court determine that it must appoint an examiner in
these Chapter 11 cases, the scope and duration of the examiner's
investigation should be extremely limited, the Debtors urge the
Court.

Wilmington Trust FSB and Capmark Finance, Inc. join in the
objections filed by the Debtors, Wells Fargo Bank National
Association, U.S. Bank National Association, and PNC Bank,
National Association.

The Court has continued the hearing with respect to the Examiner
Motion to February 5, 2010.

             Amendment to Silicon Valley Bank Facility

On December 22, 2009, Exelixis entered into Amendment No. 9 to the
Loan and Security Agreement, dated May 22, 2002, with Silicon
Valley Bank.  Amendment No. 9 provides for an extension of the
term of an existing equipment loan facility under the Loan

only draw advances under Facility D through December 31, 2009.  As
a result of Amendment No. 9, the Company may now draw advances
under Facility D through June 30, 2011.

In connection with the extension of the term, the size of the
facility was increased to $33,621,220 from $30,000,000. This

effect to prior advances under Facility D.  The Company is
required to borrow advances under Facility D in a minimum amount

Minimum Advance by the applicable required date, the Company is

and $2.5 million.

As of December 22, 2009, total outstanding borrowing under the
Loan Agreement was $24.0 million.

FILI ENTERPRISES: Asks for Court OK for $1-Mil. DIP Financing
-------------------------------------------------------------
Fili Enterprises, Inc., has sought permission from the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of California to obtain
postpetition secured financing from GPG Capital, LLC.

The DIP lender has committed to provide the Debtor with a
$1,000,000 revolving credit facility on a senior secured super-
priority basis.  The proposed DIP Financing will be available to
the Debtor on a revolving basis to cover cash shortfalls, if and
when there are shortfalls.  Funds will not be drawn -- and
accordingly, the estate will not be obligated to pay interest --
unless and until there is a need.

Brendan P. Collins, Esq., the attorney for the Debtor, explains
that the Debtor needs the money to fund its Chapter 11 case, pay
suppliers and other parties.

The DIP facility will mature on July 31, 2010.  Advances
outstanding under the DIP Facility will bear interest at 14.0%.
Interest will be payable monthly in arrears and calculated on the
basis of a 360-day year and actual days elapsed.  In the event of
default, the Debtors will pay an additional 2.0% default interest
per annum.

The Lender will receive a commitment fee in the amount equal to
5.0% of the DIP Facility commitment.  The fee will be deemed fully
earned and paid upon the disbursement of the DIP Facility.  The
Debtor will also pay to Lender from and after the date of the
final order is entered, a non-refundable unused commitment fee of
0.50% per annum of the daily average unused portion of the DIP
Facility, payable monthly in arrears and on the Maturity Date.

All obligations of Debtor under the DIP Facility will be:
(a) entitled to super-priority administrative expense claim
status, subject to (i) the payment of allowed professional fees
and disbursements incurred by Debtor and any official committees
appointed in this Case in an amount not to exceed $750,000 in the
aggregate, and (ii) the payment of fees (collectively the "Carve-
Out Expenses"), and (b) secured by a security interest in and lien
on the assets of the Debtor.  The security interests in and liens
on the assets of Debtor will be first priority, senior secured
liens not subject to subordination, but subject to the Carve-Out
Expenses.  All borrowings by Debtor, all reimbursement obligations
with respect to all costs, fees and expenses of the Investors, and
all other obligations owed to the Lender will be secured and
charged to the loan account to be established under the DIP
Facility.   All obligations will be payable upon the Maturity
Date.

The DIP Facility may be repaid at any time in whole or in part
without premium or penalty.

Debtor won't make any capital expenditure in excess of $100,000
without the Lender's approval.  There will be other customary
covenants which are customary in facilities.

FILI ENTERPRISES: Court Grants Interim OK to Use Cash Collateral
----------------------------------------------------------------
Fili Enterprises, Inc., sought and obtained authority from the
Hon. Peter W. Bowie of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of California to use Bank of America's cash collateral
until January 28, 2010.

Brendan P. Collins, Esq., the attorney of the Debtor, explains
that the Debtor needs the money to fund its Chapter 11 case, pay
suppliers and other parties.  The Debtors will use the collateral
pursuant to a budget, a copy of which is available for free at:

       http://bankrupt.com/misc/FILI_ENTERPRISES_budget.pdf

Because the Debtor's use of Cash Collateral may result in the
diminution of the value of the Prepetition Collateral and the Cash
Collateral, or either of them, the Court has granted claims
against the Debtor's estate in favor of Bank of America as
adequate protection, which claims will be in the amount of any
postpetition diminution in the value of the Prepetition Collateral
and the Cash Collateral, or either of them.

Bank of America is granted replacement security interests in, and
liens upon, the Prepetition Collateral, all postpetition proceeds
thereof and all postpetition assets of the Debtor, whether the
property and assets were acquired by the Debtor before or after
the Petition Date.

The Debtor is authorized and directed to provide Bank of America
and its counsel, consultants, and other representatives, and
agents with non-privileged operating and financial information as
may be reasonably requested by Bank of America to Debtor's
counsel.

The Court has set a January 27, 2010 hearing on the Debtor's
request to use cash collateral.

Because the Debtor's use of Cash Collateral may result in the
diminution of the value of the Prepetition Collateral and the Cash
Collateral, or either of them, the Court has granted claims
against the Debtor's estate in favor of Bank of America as
adequate protection, which claims will be in the amount of any
postpetition diminution in the value of the Prepetition Collateral
and the Cash Collateral, or either of them.

Bank of America is granted replacement security interests in, and
liens upon, the Prepetition Collateral, all postpetition proceeds
thereof and all postpetition assets of the Debtor, whether the
property and assets were acquired by the Debtor before or after
the Petition Date.

The Debtor is authorized and directed to provide Bank of America
and its counsel, consultants, and other representatives, and
agents with non-privileged operating and financial information as
may be reasonably requested by Bank of America to Debtor's
counsel.

The Court has set a January 27, 2010 hearing on the Debtor's
request to use cash collateral.

FONTAINEBLEAU LAS VEGAS: Brugnara Presents $170MM "All Cash" Offer
-----------------------------------------------------------------
San Francisco real estate developer Luke Brugnara told the Las
Vegas Review-Journal in an e-mail he has submitted a $170 million
"all cash" offer with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Miami for the
Fontainebleau project.  Review-Journal relates Mr. Brugnara said
he would pay up to $200 million for the Fontainebleau project, and
that he is backed financially by a New York City hedge fund.

The Review-Journal' Howard Stutz says Mr. Brugnara indicated he
had proof of funding to the bankruptcy court examiner in the case.
On Monday, Mr. Brugnara provided the Review-Journal with
documentation of the offer.

The bankruptcy court will hold an auction for the project
Thursday.  Fontainebleau was 70% completed before construction
stopped in April after lenders cut off $800 million in financing.
The project once had a budget of almost $3 billion, the report
notes.

Carl Icahn, who serves as stalking horse bidder, has offered
$156.6 million in cash and financing for Fontainebleau.

Penn National Gaming Inc. in November initially offered $101.5
million for the project -- $50 million in cash and $51.5 million
in DIP financing.  Penn National raised its offer to $145 million,
but was topped by Carl Icahn.  Penn National eventually pulled out
of the bidding process.

FONTAINEBLEAU BANKRUPTCY NEWS reports that Craig Road Development
Corporation in a letter dated December 2, 2009, informed the Court
of its interest to acquire 100% of the "Tier A" casino hotel and
resort from Fontainebleau.  An entity formed by CRDC and certain
investors -- Heroes Property Group, LLC -- will pay $350,000,000
for 100% of the Project's equity, payable in cash at closing.  The
letter, however, indicated the Sellers would be responsible for
retiring any funded and interest bearing debt, including capital
leases, of the Project.  The Project's stock purchased by Heroes
Property Group will be free and clear of all liens and
encumbrances.

Eugene Hill, chief executive officer of Craig Road Development
Corporation, relates that the Project would be completed through
separate funding, estimated at $800 million.  Funding for the
acquisition and build out will come from commercial sources and
the repayment of the funds will be from operational income.  The
completed facility will become one of three Department of Defense
resort properties in the United States, Mr. Hill elaborated.

In a letter sent to CRDC on December 4, 2009, Judge Cristol asked
CRDC to coordinate with the Debtors and the Chapter 11 Examiner if
it wishes to participate in the January 21, 2010 Auction.

It is unclear if other bidders had entered the picture, according
to the Review-Journal.

On Monday, Mr. Brugnara told the Review-Journal he wouldn't
complete the 3,889-room hotel tower right away, but would finish
the Fontainebleau's retail element and open the shopping area.

"The land and the site alone are worth more than $200 million,"
Mr. Brugnara told the Review-Journal.  "The rent from the retail
component would be used to finish the tower. Money is so tight
right now."

If he is successful at the auction, Mr. Brugnara said it would
take him between 30 and 60 days to close the Fontainebleau
transaction, according to the report.

"I've closed over $1 billion in transactions, and I've closed 100
percent of my deals," Mr. Brugnara told the Review-Journal.

The Review-Journal says Mr. Brugnara disputed analysts' comments
that it would take at least $1.5 billion to complete the 63-story
building, saying it would cost far less to finish the tower.

                      Run In With Authorities

The Review-Journal recalls that Mr. Brugnara in March 2001 was
denied a gaming license on unanimous votes by both the three-
person Gaming Control Board and five-member Nevada Gaming
Commission for the Silver City Casino, which he purchased in 1999
for $30 million.  The casino has since been closed and converted
into a shopping center across from the Echelon site near
Convention Center Drive.  Mr. Brugnara had proposed to build a
high-rise condominium tower on the site but those plans have since
been dropped.

The report notes gaming regulators in 1999 were openly hostile to
Mr. Brugnara's license application, citing several matters
including a failure to file federal tax forms and a $1 million
fine by San Francisco authorities.  The control board hearing
alone took more than six hours to complete, the report recalls.

Mr. Brugnara told the Review-Journal on Monday that the 2001
licensing matter was "water under the bridge" and he thought he
would be successful this time around if he acquires the
Fontainebleau.

The report also recalls that in April 2008, a federal grand jury
in San Francisco indicted Mr. Brugnara for filing false tax
returns by failing to report more than $45 million in capital
gains from the sales of real property.  Mr. Brugnara, however,
said that matter was being settled.  The report says a spokesman
for the U.S. attorney's office in San Francisco could not be
reached for comment Monday because of the federal holiday.

FUNDAMENTAL PROVISIONS: Gets Final Approval to Access Lenders Cash
------------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Douglas D. Dodd of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Middle District of Louisiana, in a final order, authorized
Fundamental Provisions, L.L.C., et al., to use cash securing their
obligations to their prepetition lenders.

The Debtors related that certain creditors, including the Internal
Revenue Service, may claim a lien on the Debtor's credit card
deposits, which constitute cash collateral.  As of the date of
filing, the Debtors estimate that it has $25,000 in credit card
slips that have been deposited for collection, which creditors may
assert constitute cash collateral.  In the ordinary case, these
credit card deposits are collected and replaced on a daily basis
with other credit card deposits arising from the sale of food and
beverages.

The Debtors would use the money to fund their Chapter 11 case, pay
suppliers and other parties.

The Court also said that the Debtors may exceed each line item in
the Budget by up to 20%, so long as the aggregate amount of the
budget on a monthly basis is not exceeded by more than 20%.

In exchange for using the cash collateral, the Debtors will grant
the prepetition lenders replacement security interests in and
liens on all post-petition assets of the Debtor and its estates
and superpriority administrative expense claim.

GENERAL MOTORS: Seeks Union Concessions at Former Delphi Plants
---------------------------------------------------------------
Detroit Free Press Business Writer Jewel Gopwani reports that
General Motors is seeking concessions from workers at UAW-
represented plants that GM acquired last year from its Delphi
Corp.

Detroit Free Press cited the plant's workers and a memo to workers
from a union local.  Detroit Free Press relates that at union
meetings in Saginaw and Lockport, New York, UAW officials told
workers at GM parts plants that proposed concessions include wage
freezes and a $3 an-hour pay cut for skilled-trades workers.
Plants in Wyoming near Grand Rapids, Kokomo, Ind., and Rochester,
N.Y., may also have to consider concessions, Detroit Free Press
says.

Free Press says analysts expect GM to sell those parts plants, and
union concessions could help.  A GM spokesman declined to comment
on union negotiations, the report notes.

"We were advised in order to remain competitive, there will be
other necessary modifications we must consider and ratify,"
according to the memo from UAW local 686 in Lockport, N.Y., Free
Press says.

food retail market continues to face one of the most difficult and
challenging environments in many years which analysts expect will
extend through the first half of 2010.  Unemployment, deflation
and the resulting price competition combined with consumers'
drastic changes in spending behavior has severely impacted both
our industry and our business.

"Since assuming the role of interim CEO, I have launched efforts
to assess all aspects of our business and to develop initiatives
to improve our performance in the short term.  During this
important process, we have been fully engaged with Yucaipa and
have leveraged their significant skills and industry expertise.
We have determined that our previous merchandising and marketing
programs did not meet the consumer's changing needs.  As a result,
we have been changing our go-to-market direction and implemented a
number of initiatives to mitigate the negative external influences
and provide our customers with better value, service and quality
products.

"This quarter marks the transition to a different approach which
we expect will translate to improved performance in the coming
months.  At the same time, we are working together with Yucaipa to
develop longer-term strategies to drive sustainable success in the
future.  These efforts combined with our strong strategic position
in the Northeast, our superior store base and our resolve to
implement strategic changes makes me confident in the Company's
long-term prospects."

companies.  They will recover 72.5% to 82% of their claims.
Holders of other secured claims would have their claims reinstated
and will recover 100%.

General unsecured claims, administrative expense claims, tax
claims, certain priority non-tax claims and certain other secured
claims would be paid in full.

Holders of 12.75% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2014, aggregating
$45 million would receive nothing on account of their claims.

JAPAN AIRLINES: Files to Reorganize in Tokyo and NYC
----------------------------------------------------
Japan Airlines Corp. filed for reorganization January 19 in the
Tokyo District Court and filed a Chapter 15 petition in New York
(Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 10-10198).  The Company said debt is
$28 billion.

Starting October 2009, the Debtors engaged in advance
consultations regarding possible debt restructuring with the
Enterprise Turnaround Initiative Corporation of Japan, a fund
established to help revive firms with state-guaranteed loans. In
discussions with ETIC, ultimately it was determined that a court-
supervised restructuring would provide the Debtors' the best
opportunity to restructure their debt and return to profitability.

To effectuate this restructuring, the Debtors voluntarily filed
for the commencement of a corporate reorganization proceeding with
the Tokyo District Court under the Corporate Reorganization Act of
Japan on January 19, 2010.  In the Japan Proceeding, the Debtors
intend to obtain the approval of the relevant affected creditors,
and confirmation by the Tokyo District Court, of a debt
restructuring plan.

To ensure sufficient liquidity to maintain their businesses and
safe flight operations without disruption during the pendency of
the Japan Proceeding, the Debtors have entered into an agreement
pursuant to which ETIC and the Development Bank of Japan have
committed to provide approximately $5 billion of postpetition
financing to effectuate the
reorganization.

                         Tokyo Proceedings

Japan Airlines Corporation, Japan Airlines International Co., Ltd.
and JAL Capital Co., Ltd., filed January 19 -- jointly with the
Development Bank of Japan Japan Bank for International
Cooperation, Mizuho Corporate Bank, Ltd., The Bank of Tokyo-
Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd. and Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation -- an
application to the Enterprise Turnaround Initiative Corporation of
Japan for support for its restructuring and received the decision
from ETIC to provide support.

In addition, JAL filed the petitions for commencement of corporate
reorganization proceedings with the Tokyo District Court.  The
Court entered an order commencing the proceedings and appointed
ETIC and Eiji Katayama, Esq., as reorganization trustees.
With respect to the certified alternative dispute resolution
procedures as prescribed in the Act on Special Measures for
Revitalization of Industrial Vitality and Innovation of Industrial
Activities that JAL had begun, the termination of those procedures
was decided by the Japanese Association of Turnaround
Professionals, a private operator of the Turnaround ADR Procedure,
prior to the filing of the petitions for commencement of corporate
reorganization proceedings.

The Trustees obtained comprehensive Court approval authorizing
JAL's continued payment of certain commercial transaction claims,
including payments for fuel and other supplies and services, as
well as leases and other related obligations.  Also, JAL will be
able to obtain the DIP financing from DBJ and ETIC.

JAL said in a press release that the continuation of group's
flight operations will not be interrupted and our safe flight
operations will be surely performed.  IT said that customers'
airline tickets and frequent flyer miles will be fully protected
and the frequent flyer program is expected to be continued as it
has been conducted.

A full-text copy of JAL's news release is available for free at:

   http://press.jal.co.jp/en/release/201001/001432.html

                       Chapter 15 Petition

Aside from Japan Airlines Corp. Japan Airlines International Co.,
Ltd. and JAL Capital Co., Ltd. also filed Chapter 15 petitions.

To ensure the effective and economic administration of the
Debtors' restructuring efforts, the Debtors say they require the
protection afforded to foreign debtors pursuant to chapter 15 of
the Bankruptcy Code for their valuable assets in the United
States.

The Debtors want the U.S. Court to hold that Japan Proceeding is a
"foreign main proceeding" within the meaning of Section 1502(4) of
the Bankruptcy Code, as each of the Debtors is a Japanese company
having a substantial connection to Japan, and having its center of
main interest in Japan.

The New York court will assist the court in Japan by stopping
creditor actions in the U.S.  The New York court, following
hearings, is expected to enter preliminary and permanent
injunctions against creditor actions in the U.S.

Immediately upon the recognition of a foreign main proceeding, the
automatic stay and selected other provisions of the Bankruptcy
Code take effect within the United States.  The foreign
representative is also authorized to operate the debtor's business
in the ordinary course.  The U.S. court is authorized to issue
preliminary relief as soon as the petition for recognition is
filed.

Ryan B. Bennett, Esq., at Kirkland & Ellis, LLP, represents the
Chapter 15 debtors.

The Chapter 15 petition says assets and debts both exceed $1
billion.

                  Protracted Bankruptcy Case Seen

The Wall Street Journal's Hiroyuki Kachi reports that Japan
Airlines Corp.'s stint under bankruptcy protection isn't likely to
be short or simple.  The Journal cites JAL's massive liabilities
and sprawling business that covers everything from jet-fuel
procurement to aircraft leasing, both in Japan and overseas.  The
Journal says JAL's case could also raise challenging questions
about whether bankruptcy protection will be recognized as it does
business in other countries.

"One thing that can become a big future problem is whether the
court protection will be valid outside Japan as an international
bankruptcy case," Hideyuki Kobayashi, Esq., at Blakemore & Mitsuki
law office in Tokyo, said, according to the Journal.  Citing also
Japanese law and the uncertainty surrounding its fortunes, he
added, "We can expect at least three years for JAL's revival."

JAL filed for bankruptcy in Tokyo District Court pursuant to
Japan's Corporate Rehabilitation Act, which is based on U.S.
bankruptcy law.

The Journal also notes Japan's bankruptcy protection law has
undergone several revisions to date, aimed at making it easier to
use and bringing it closer into line with Chapter 11.  Citing
Teikoku Databank, the Journal says among the 134 companies that
filed for bankruptcy protection under the act between January 2004
and June 2009, around 50% have already managed to revive
themselves, and only 1.5% actually went bankrupt and were
liquidated.  Those companies took an average of 1.7 years to exit
the reorganization process, data from Teikoku Databank showed,
compared with 12.1 years for companies entering bankruptcy
protection 10 years ago.

LANDAMERICA FIN'L: CDC Wants Rule 2004 Exam on Records Custodian
----------------------------------------------------------------
CDC Rural LP entered into an exchange agreement with LandAmerica
1031 Exchange Services, Inc., to effectuate a Section 1031 tax-
deferred exchange on replacement properties.  In accordance with
the Rural Exchange Agreement, CDC Rural conveyed the relinquished
property located in Tempe, Arizona.  LES then sold the CDC Rural
Relinquished Property to Bubion Investment Co., LLC, as required
under the CDC Rural Exchange Agreement.

The CDC Rural Exchange Agreement required LES (i) to hold about
$1.6 million in sale proceeds with respect to the CDC Rural
Relinquished Property for the benefit of CDC Rural, and (ii) to
guarantee that CDC Rural would receive interest on the funds at
the rate outlined under the Exchange Agreement.

CDC Glendale LP also entered into an exchange agreement with LES
to effectuate a Section 1031 tax deferred exchange on replacement
properties.  The Glendale Exchange Agreement required LES to hold
approximately $1.3 million in proceeds from the sale of the CDC
Glendale Relinquished Property.

CDC Glendale and CDC Rural believe that they were defrauded by
the Debtors and certain other parties working in concert with the
Debtors into entering into Exchange Agreements mere days before
the Debtors' bankruptcy filing.

The Debtors' confirmed Chapter 11 Plan provides an injunction
against pursuing claims against the Debtors' officers and
directors to the extent it depletes any officer and director
insurance policy coverage.  In this light, CDC seeks documents
and other information from the Debtors concerning the identity of
third parties who are or are not covered by the Debtors' D&O
Policies.

CDC specifically requests that each of the Debtors designate one
or more custodians who can present testimony on their behalf as
to:

  -- the source, authenticity, and other factors relevant to
     the admission into evidence under the Federal Rules of
     Evidence of the documents produced in response to the
     document request as well as the subject matter set forth
     in each document; and

  -- the Debtors' inability, if any, to produce any of the
     documents requested.

In addition, CDC needs to review specific document response to
the document requests which it believes are in the possession,
custody or control of the Debtors as part of the assessment.

Accordingly, CDC asks the Court to compel the Debtors' records
custodian to appear for examination pursuant to Rule 2004 of the
Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure before a duly authorized
court reporter at the offices of Sands Anderson Marks & Miller,
at 801 East Main Street, Suite 1800, in Richmond, Virginia, at
10:00 a.m., on January 14, 2010, to testify and provide
information on the requested topics.

CDC also seeks permission to continue the Rule 2004 Exam on the
records custodian day to day until completed.

LANDAMERICA FIN'L: R. Blue Sues Capital Title on Dischargeability
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Rolando Blue asserted an adversary complaint, seeking to
determine the dischargeability of debt and declare certain debt
as non-dischargeable, pursuant to Section 523 of the Bankruptcy
Code and Rules 4007 and 7001 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy
Procedure, against Debtor Capital Title Group, Inc., and certain
other defendants.

Mr. Blue, a member of California-based Amigo Management, LLC,
executed a promissory note in San Diego, California, with Maria
A. De Leon.  The promissory note obligated Ms. De Leon to make
payments to Mr. Blue in the principle amount of $25,000.  The
note is secured by a second deed of trust to certain real
property in County of San Diego, in California, known as 127 San
Jacinto Drive.  The Deed of Trust established Ms. De Leon as the
trustor, Gateway Title Company as the trustee, and Mr. Blue,
through his company Amigo Management, LLC, as the beneficiary.
Ms. De Leon granted Mr. Blue the power to sell the Property.

Ms. De Leon defaulted on the promissory note in March 2007.  Mr.
Blue subsequently retained Capital Title Group to act as trustee
with respect to the Property.

Capital Title Group then served on Ms. De Leon a Notice of
Default, which listed the incorrect principal amount as the
amount required to redeem the promissory note.  The Default
Notice was subsequently rescinded.  Capital Title served another
Default Notice on March 23, 2007, but that Notice again listed an
incorrect principal amount as the amount required to redeem the
promissory note.

Capital Title then issued a document entitled Assignment of Deed
of Trust, purporting to assign Mr. Blue's interests in the
Property to Deutsche Bank National Trust Company, as Trustee for
Carrington Mortgage Loan, Series 2005-NC2 Asset Backed Pass
Through Certificates.  The Assignment of Deed of Trust named an
entity called New Century Mortgage Corporation as the new
beneficiary of the Property.  The Deed Assignment was signed by
Frank Mercado, Jr., an officer of New Century Mortgage.

Mr. Blue contends that he did not consent to Deed Assignment.  He
maintains at Capital Title did not contact him to obtain his
consent on the assignment of his interests in the Property to
Deutsche Bank.  Mr. Blue adds that (1) he was never provided
notice of the Deed Assignment, and (2) he did not receive payment
in any form from Deutsche Bank or the Defendants with respect to
the Deed Assignment.  Mr. Blue believes the Defendants received
certain consideration for the Deutsche Bank Deed Assignment.

Mr. Blue, through his company Amigo Management and as beneficiary
under the Deed of Trust, initiated a non-judicial foreclosure
under California law.  As a result of the non-judicial
foreclosure sale, Mr. Blue obtained title to the Property.  As a
result of Capital Title's willful violation of California law,
Ms. De Leon commenced an action on September 30, 2008, in the
Superior Court of San Diego, Case No. 2008-00092851-CU-BC-CTL,
naming Mr. Blue as defendant.  The San Diego State Court Action
seek to set aside the foreclosure sale on the basis of fraud,
alleging (i) that the Notices of Default were invalid due to
material misstatements as to the redemption and reinstatement
amounts, and (ii) that Mr. Blue did not have standing to
foreclose on the Property because he assigned his interests in
the Property to Deutsche Bank.

Mr. Blue notes that Capital Title has not rescinded the Deed
Assignment, thereby impairing his title to the Property.  He
complains that as a direct result of Capital Title's conduct, he
has been sued and forced to retain legal counsel.

Mr. Blue says he has not ascertained the true names and
capacities of the other defendants in his Adversary Complaint
against Capital Title and thus, sues those Defendants under
fictitious names, Does 1-10.  He intends to amend his Complaint
to allege the Other Defendants' true names and capacities as soon
as available.  Mr. Blue alleges that the Doe Defendants are
responsible in some manner for the occurrences alleged in his
Complaint.

Pursuant to his Adversary Complaint, Mr. Blue asks the Court to:

  (a) establish Capital Title's liability, including attorneys'
      fees and costs incurred in the De Leon Action and in
      filing Mr. Blue's Adversary Complaint;

  (b) declare that Capital Title's liability to Mr. Blue is
      Non-dischargeable pursuant to Section 523(a)(4) of the
      Bankruptcy Code; and

  (c) award him punitive damages in an amount to be proven at
      trial and in a sum of no less than $50,000.

LANDAMERICA FIN'L: Sues Lehr Properties to Stay Suit
----------------------------------------------------
LandAmerica Financial Group, Inc., and LandAmerica 1031 Exchange
Services, Inc., initiated an adversary complaint for injunctive
relief against Lehr Properties, L.P., on November 19, 2009.

Under the Complaint, the Debtors seek to enjoin the prosecution
of a recent action initiated by Lehr or the commencement of any
action by Lehr unless Lehr takes the actions in accordance with a
"scheduling protocol order" issued by the Bankruptcy Court in
relation to several Section 1031 Exchange Adversary Complaints
filed by several parties in the Debtors' bankruptcy cases.

The Lehr Action referred under the Debtors' complaint is the
proceeding commenced by Lehr on July 1, 2009, in the Superior
Court of the State of California for the County of Los Angeles,
Case No. BC417004, naming, among other parties, Golden Escrow,
Inc., as a defendant.  Golden Escrow is a wholly owned subsidiary
of County Title Holding Corporation, which in turn is a wholly
owned subsidiary of LFG.  Under the Lehr Action, Lehr filed
charges against Golden Escrow for gross negligence, breach of
fiduciary duty, and constructive fraud.  It centers on an alleged
transaction by which Lehr alleges that Golden Escrow referred
Lehr to LES to facilitate a like-kind exchange.

The Debtors note that Lehr has alleged that it transferred
$802,063 to LES to facilitate the like-kind exchange.  But for
the deliberate omission of LES as a named defendant, the Debtors
argue, the Lehr Claims are indistinguishable from those that have
been raised in a number of other adversary proceedings filed
against LES in the Bankruptcy Court which, subject to the terms
of a Scheduling Protocol for Adversary Proceedings, have been
uniformly stayed.

The Debtors note that Lehr filed a proof of claim in LES'
bankruptcy case on April 2, 2009, asserting a general unsecured
claim of $802,063 for breach of an Exchange Agreement between
Lehr and LES.

The Debtors also inform the Court that LFG and Hartford Fire
Insurance Company are parties to an indemnity agreement, whereby
LFG agreed to indemnify and exonerate Hartford from any loss and
expense of whatever kind that Hartford may incur or sustain as a
result of or in connection with the furnishing of any bond on
behalf of LFG or its affiliates.  The Debtors aver that Hartford
has furnished Bond No. 14 BSB EA6798 with the California
Department of Corporations on behalf of Golden Escrow.  In this
light, LFG may be obligated to indemnify Hartford for any loss
sustained as a result of a claim by Lehr against the Bond, the
Debtors point out.

More importantly, the Debtors assert that allowing Lehr to
recover on its claims outside of a Bankruptcy Court-supervised
process will eviscerate the fundamental Bankruptcy Code policy of
requiring similarly situated creditors to be treated equally and
may result in a double recovery for Lehr.

LEAF BRANDS: Neil Reithinger Steps Down as CFO and COO
------------------------------------------------------
Leaf Brands Inc. said that Neil Reithinger resigned as the
company's chief financial officer and chief operating officer and
member of the board of directors, but will remain with the company
as a non-executive worker for 90 days under his agreement with the
company.

The board appointed David Tsiang as the company's CFO effective
January 7, 2010.  He will receive an annual salary of $130,000,
and be granted 350,000 options to purchase common stock at an
exercise price of $0.63 per share.

Baywood International, Inc. changed its name effective October 16,
2009 to New Leaf Brands, Inc. to reflect the change in strategic
direction with the sale of Baywood's nutraceutical businesses on
October 9, 2009.  The name change was effective in the market at
the open of business October 19, 2009, at which time the Company's
ticker symbol changed from BAYW.OB to NLEF.OB.

On July 24, 2009, the Company entered into an Asset Purchase
Agreement with Nutra, Inc., a subsidiary of Nutraceutical
International Corporation.   The Company sold substantially all of
the rights and assets of Nutritional Specialties' business,
including but not limited to its accounts, notes and other
receivables, inventory, tangible assets, rights existing under
assigned purchase orders, proprietary rights, government licenses,
customer lists, records, goodwill and assumed contracts.  Certain
rights and assets were excluded from the purchased assets,
including the right to market, sell and distribute beverages.

The Company's new planned strategic direction is to build a
beverage company around its New Leaf brand of ready-to-drink teas
and other new functional beverages.  Even with limited access to
capital, the Company has grown the New Leaf brand.  New Leaf
beverages are sold in 24 states, through 75 distributors and 14
well-known retailers in over 8,000 outlets.  The Company sold
118,820 cases of iced tea in the third quarter of 2009, up over
54% from 77,124 cases in the third quarter of 2008.  The Company
anticipates that, after its debts are repaid and renegotiated, it
will be able to raise capital to grow its New Leaf brand as well
as develop additional brands.

In exchange, Nutra, Inc. agreed to pay an aggregate purchase price
of $8,250,000 in cash, less payment of liabilities, a $250,000
retention and certain pre-closing working capital adjustments.
Pursuant to the Agreement, the assets of Nutritional Specialties
were evaluated at closing to see if they have a minimum net asset
value as of the closing date, after giving effect to normal
generally accepted accounting principles, adjustments for reserves
and except for routine reductions related to normal amortization
and depreciation, equal to $1,848,604.  If the net asset value was
greater or less than $1,848,604 at the closing, the purchase price
payable at closing would be increased or decreased by the amount
of such difference on a dollar-for-dollar basis.  At closing, the
net asset value was $2,176,411 and therefore the initial purchase
price of $8,250,000 was increased by $327,807.  The asset sale
contemplated by the Agreement closed on October 9, 2009.

The Company is currently in default on notes that mature before
November 10, 2009.  The Company said $1,364,219 of this debt was
paid in October 2009 and the Company intends to convert the
remaining debt into equity.  In the subsequent period ended as of
November 10, 2009, the related party debt holders agreed to
convert an aggregate of $3,822,638 of debt and $492,704 of accrued
interest into an aggregate of 17,261,368 shares of common stock at
a conversion price of $0.25 per share.  The effect of these
conversion will be a expense of roughly $7,060,000 based on the
intrinsic value of the company stock compared to the exercise
price.  As of November 16, 2009, the shares have not yet been
issued.


LOCATION BASED: Posts $2.3 Million Net Loss in November 30 Quarter
------------------------------------------------------------------
Location Based Technologies, Inc., reported a net loss of
$2,312,682 on total net revenue of $53,300 for the three months
ended November 30, 2009, compared to a net loss of $3,092,177 on
no revenue for the comparable period ended November 30, 2008.

For the three months ended November 30, 2009, the Company reported
other expenses consisting of financing costs, amortization
expenses, interest expense and foreign currency gains totaling
$1,266,572 as compared to $1,861,170 for the three months ended
November 30, 2008.  The decrease at November 30, 2009, is
primarily attributed to a decrease in stock based financing costs
paid to consultants providing capital raising services.

The decrease in net loss is primarily attributed to a decrease in
other expenses.

                          Balance Sheet

At November 30, 2009, the Company's consolidated balance sheets
showed $3,148,670 in total assets and $3,938,882 in total current
liabilities, resulting in a $790,212 shareholders' deficit.

The Company reported negative working capital of $3,393,316 at
November 30, 2009, as compared to negative working capital of
$2,074,994 at August 31, 2009.

A full-text copy of the Company's quarterly report on Form 10-Q is
available at no charge at http://researcharchives.com/t/s?4d8d

                       Going Concern Doubt

"The Company has incurred net losses since inception, and as of
November 30, 2009, had an accumulated deficit of $22,078,668.
These conditions raise substantial doubt as to the Company's
ability to continue as a going concern."

LSP ENERGY: Moody's Junks Ratings on Cash Shortfall
---------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded LSP Energy Limited
Partnership's rating on its senior secured bonds to Caa1 from B3.
The outlook remains negative.

The rating action reflects the Project's $3.6 million draw on its
debt service reserve to make its January 2010 debt service
payment.  The recent draw follows on a $4 million draw in July
2009 and a $5.2 million draw in January 2009.  Approximately
$3.7 million remains in the debt service reserve, which is
equivalent to approximately 1.4 months of debt service.

A major factor in the cash flow shortfall were outages incurred at
the Project.  The Unit 3 steam turbine generator incurred a major
outage in 2009 due to a high level of cycling operations.  The
estimated net cost to the project after insurance proceeds is
approximately $3 million for Unit 3.  LSP Energy also had to spend
$1.9 million to resolve potentially similar outages occurring at
Unit 1.

The rating action also considers the Project's 2010 budget, which
forecasts insufficient cash flow to fully meet debt service.  The
shortfall could potentially result in full utilization of the
remaining debt service reserve within the next year.  The timing
of any draw is likely to be dependent on actual incurrence of
operating expenditures, the timing and level of receipt of
insurance proceeds tied to the 2009 outages and the Project's
ability to maintain strong operational performance.

The Caa1 rating currently considers expectations for meaningful
recovery in the event of a default given historical asset sales in
the region though significant uncertainty remains.  Recovery based
solely on LSP's cash flows are likely to result in lower recovery
since the Project's offtake contracts mature in 2013 and 2016 and
net wholesale revenue is currently modest for gas fired generation
in the region.

The negative outlook reflects the significant potential for
default within the next year and uncertain recovery prospects.
The rating could be downgraded again if the Project were to
further utilize its debt service reserves or if recovery prospects
weaken.

LSP Energy Limited Partnership is a limited partnership that owns
and operates an 837 MW combined-cycle natural gas-fired electric
generating facility located in Batesville, Mississippi.  LSP is
96% owned by Complete Energy Holdings, a privately held operator
of electric generation.  Complete is headquartered in Houston,
Texas and is approximately 100% owned by individuals.

The last rating action on LSP occurred on November 14, 2008, when
the Project was downgraded to B3.


MARKET STREET: Has Until January 21 to File Schedules & Statement
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Elizabeth W. Magner of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Eastern District of Louisiana extended until January 21, 2010,
Market Street Properties, LLC's time to file its schedules of
assets and liabilities and statement of financial affairs.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on January 6, 2010,
the Debtor asked for a January 25 filing extension stating the it
needed additional time to gather together the necessary
information to complete its schedules and statement.

Oceanside, New York-based Market Street Properties, LLC, filed for
Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on December 23, 2009 (Bankr. E.D.
La. Case No. 09-14172).  Christopher T. Caplinger, Esq., who has
an office in New Orleans, Louisiana, assists the Company in its
restructuring effort.  The Company listed $10,000,001 to
$50,000,000 in assets and $10,000,001 to $50,000,000 in
liabilities.


MECHANICAL TECHNOLOGY: Inks Common Stock Deal With Counter Point
----------------------------------------------------------------
MTI MicroFuel Cells Inc., a majority-owned subsidiary of
Mechanical Technology, Incorporated, entered into a Common Stock
and Warrant Purchase Agreement with Counter Point Ventures Fund
II, L.P.  Counter Point, a venture fund focused on investments in
high-technology companies, is co-owned by General Electric Company
and Dr. Walter L. Robb, a member of the Board of Directors of the
Company and MTI Micro, and is a current stockholder of MTI Micro.
Dr. Robb and Counter Point beneficially held approximately 29.5%
of the fully-diluted capital stock of MTI Micro immediately prior
to the First Closing described below, and now hold an aggregate of
approximately 30.7% of the fully-diluted capital stock of MTI
Micro after giving effect to the First Closing.

Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, MTI Micro may issue and sell
to Counter Point up to 28,571,429 shares of common stock, par
value $0.01 per share, at a purchase price per share of $0.070,
over a period of 12 months, and warrants to purchase shares of
Micro Common Stock equal to 20% of the shares of Micro Common
Stock purchased under the Purchase Agreement at an exercise price
of $0.070 per share. The sale and issuance of the Micro Common
Stock and Warrants shall occur over multiple closings occurring
over two one month closing periods and five two-month closing
periods, the first Closing of which occurred on January 11, 2010
with MTI Micro raising $165,000 from the sale of 2,357,143 shares
of Micro Common Stock and Warrants to purchase 471,429 shares of
Micro Common Stock to Counter Point.

Subsequent Closings may occur thereafter at MTI Micro's sole
discretion during the Closing Periods upon delivery of written
notice by MTI Micro to Counter Point of its desire to consummate a
Closing, and Counter Point's acceptance of such offer under the
Purchase Agreement on the terms agreed upon with MTI Micro.  In
the event the terms and conditions of the Purchase Agreement no
longer reflect current market conditions or otherwise following
the First Closing, either party may elect not to participate in a
Subsequent Closing(s) or the parties may amend the Purchase
Agreement on mutually agreeable terms with respect to such
Subsequent Closing(s).

The purchase price per share of the Micro Common Stock and the
exercise price of the Warrants are the same as the conversion
price of MTI Micro's bridge notes that were converted into Micro
Common Stock in December 2009, resulting in the conversion of an
aggregate of $3,910,510 of outstanding principal and accrued
interest under secured promissory notes issued by MTI Micro into
an aggregate of 55,864,425 shares of Micro Common Stock at a
conversion price of $0.070 per share.

If MTI Micro were to issue and sell the remainder of the
28,571,429 shares under the Purchase Agreement, the Company would
continue to hold an aggregate of 55.8% of the fully-diluted
capital stock of MTI Micro.

MEDICURE INC: Posts C$176,000 Net Loss in November 30 Quarter
-------------------------------------------------------------
Medicure Inc. reported a net loss of C$176,219 on products sales
of C$977,297 for the three months ended November 30, 2009,
compared to a net loss of C$6,975,310 on product sales of
C$1,457,960 for the three months ended November 30, 2008.

The quarterly loss for the three month period ended November 30,
2009 is C$6,799,091 lower than the three month period ended
November 30, 2008, due to:

  -- C$4,959,070 spread between 2010 Q2 foreign exchange gain of
     C$1,080,967 and 2009 Q2 loss of C$3,878,103.

  -- C$1,080,182 decrease in selling, general and administrative
     expenses;

  -- C$480,663 decrease in sales attributable to a decline in
     wholesale sales offset by the price increase introduced
     during 2009.

For the six months ended November 30, 2009, the Company reported a
net loss of C$2,085,778 on products sales of C$1,918,257, compared
to a net loss of C$9,983,911 on products sales of C$2,628,819 for
the six months ended November 30,2008.

                          Balance Sheet

At November 30, 2009, the Company's consolidated balance sheets
showed C$7,850,850 in total assets and C$29,399,351 in total
liabilities, resulting in a C$21,548,501 shareholders' deficit.

The Company's consolidated balance sheets at November 30, 2009,
also showed strained liquidity with C$2,228,058 in total current
assets available to pay C$5,088,212 in total current liabilities.

A full-text copy of the Company's interim consolidated financial
statements for the three and six months ended November 30, 2009,
is available for free at http://researcharchives.com/t/s?4d8f

                          Going Concern

These consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a
going concern basis in accordance with Canadian generally accepted
accounting principles.

"There is significant doubt about the appropriateness of the use
of the going concern assumption because the Company has
experienced operating losses and cash outflows from operations
since incorporation and has significant debt servicing
obligations.  In addition, the Company has had to seek extensions
from its lender under its secured debt financing agreement dated
September 17, 2007, to defer required payments originally due
July 15 and October 15, 2009.  Without these extensions the
Company would have been in default in respect to its long-term
debt.  Upon an event of default, the lender could exercise its
security rights under the agreement.
   
The Company has experienced a loss of $2,085,778 and negative cash
flows from operations of $1,349,660 in the six months ending
November 30, 2009, and has accumulated a deficit of $150,635,078
as at November 30, 2009."

"The Company is also in discussions with its senior lender to
restructure its debt.  Based on the Company's operating plan, its
existing working capital is not sufficient to fund its planned
operations, capital requirements, debt servicing obligations, and
commitments through the end of the fiscal 2010 year without
restructuring of its debt and raising additional capital.  No
agreements with the lender or other potential lenders or investors
have been reached yet and there can be no assurance that such
agreements will be reached.  Further, the Company's financing
agreement includes certain restrictive covenants on commercial and
developmental products including intellectual property.  The
ability of the Company to execute on its operating plan is likely
to be contingent on having collaborative relationships with its
lender.  If the Company is unable to restructure its debt,
complete other strategic alternatives, and/or secure additional
funds, the Company will have to consider additional strategic
alternatives which may include, among other strategies, asset
divestitures, monetization of certain intangibles, and/or the
winding up, dissolution or liquidation of the Company."

MEGA BRAND: Recapitalization Won't Affect Moody's 'Ca' Rating
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's commented that Mega Brand's proposed recapitalization,
which will repay the secured lenders at 70 cents on the dollar
(including the cash and equity portions) and extinguish all of the
current debt does not affect the current Ca CFR or Caa3 Secured
debt ratings.

Should the transaction close Moody's would assign a "D" rating to
the rated debt instruments and subsequently withdraw the ratings.

The last rating action for the company took place on April 17th
2009 when the CFR rating was lowered to Ca from Caa2.

MEGA Brands manufactures and markets a broad line of toys and
stationery and activities products.  It is based in Montreal,

MERIDIAN RESOURCE: Inks Compromise & Settlement Deal With Shell
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Meridian Resource Corporation and Shell Oil Company entered
into a Compromise and Settlement Agreement regarding the Shell
indemnity claims under the two acquisition agreements related to
the fields.

Under the terms of the Settlement Agreement, the Company will

   a) make a cash payment to Shell of $5 million in five annual
      payments of $1 million each, the first $1 million payment
      being payable upon the earlier of April 1, 2010 or the
      closing of a sale of the assets or equity interest in the
      Company to a third party dated as of December 22, 2009,
      among the Company, Alta Mesa Holdings, LP and Alta Mesa
      Acquisition Sub, LLC qualifies as such a sale transaction),
      with subsequent annual installments of $1 million to be made
      on January 4 of each of the following four years;

   b) convey to Shell certain acreage in Terrebonne Parish,
      Louisiana, which acreage is nonproducing and which has no
      Company oil or gas reserves associated with it;

   c) plug and abandon certain wells and remediate certain acreage
      located in Louisiana in due course; and

   d) release Shell from indemnity claims under the two
      acquisition agreements related to the fields.

In consideration for the foregoing, Shell agreed to release the
Company from any indemnity claim arising from any current or
historical claim against Shell, and to release Meridian's
indemnity obligation with respect to any future claim on all but a
small subset of the properties acquired pursuant to the
acquisition agreements related to the fields. The releases of
claims become effective upon the initial $1 million cash payment
to Shell and the conveyance to Shell of the Terrebonne Parish
acreage, which are expected to occur at the closing of the Merger.

MORRIS PUBLISHIBNG: Files Chapter 11 with Plan
----------------------------------------------
With the support of an overwhelming majority of its bondholders,
Morris Publishing Group today filed a plan in U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Southern District of Georgia in Augusta to complete
the restructuring of its debt.

Morris has asked the Court to approve a plan that will reduce
bondholder debt through the issuance of $100 million of new second
lien secured notes due in 2014 in exchange for the cancellation of
approximately $278.5 million principal amount of outstanding
senior subordinated notes due 2013 plus accrued interest.

Holders of approximately 93 percent of the existing notes voted to
support the filing of a prepackaged reorganization plan in
bankruptcy court.

"This filing is the final step in the financial restructuring we
announced last fall,'' said William S. Morris III, chairman of
Morris Publishing Group.  "We are pleased that so many of our
noteholders agreed to support this move to get Morris Publishing
on more solid financial ground.''

Under the prepackaged plan, Morris Publishing will reduce its
overall indebtedness from approximately $415 million to $126.5
million.  The new notes will bear interest of at least 10 percent,
but could bear interest up to 15 percent, some of which may be
paid in-kind until Morris Publishing repays its remaining senior
debt. The company reduced its senior indebtedness by $110 million
last fall.

Morris Publishing Group will continue to operate its 13 daily
newspapers, its non-daily newspapers, its websites, city magazines
and free community newspapers without interruption.  Readers and
advertisers should notice no change in operations.  All
obligations to employees and vendors will be met in full.

MORRIS PUBLISHING: Gets Court OK of Critical First-Day Motions
--------------------------------------------------------------
Morris Publishing Group disclosed that, as part of its financial
restructuring, the company has received Court approval to continue
business operations without interruption.

Judge John Dalis of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Augusta granted
critical "first-day" motions that allow the company to continue
paying wages and benefits to employees and to continue covering
both pre- and post-petition obligations to suppliers and
customers.  The court also granted the company authority to
continue using its cash to fund its operating expenses.

"We are gratified that the Court approved these critical motions,
ensuring that our customers, employees and suppliers will see no
change in our business operations," said William S. Morris III,
chairman of Morris Publishing.  "This allows us to complete the
final step in our debt restructuring without any noticeable impact
to our newspapers.  Just as important it saves thousands of jobs
and enables us to continue to operate our business with the same
high standards we have for three generations."

The Court set a deadline of Feb. 10 for objections to the Plan and
Disclosure Statement, and scheduled a confirmation hearing on the
reorganization plan for Feb. 17.

Mark A. Berkoff, a partner with Morris Publishing's legal counsel
Neal, Gerber & Eisenberg LLP, said he expected the Morris
restructuring "will be one of the fastest newspaper
reorganizations in U.S. history."

With the overwhelming support of its bondholders, Morris
Publishing filed a prepackaged plan of reorganization on Tuesday.
The company is asking the Court to approve a plan that will reduce
bondholder debt through the issuance of $100 million of new second
lien secured notes due in 2014 in exchange for the cancellation of
approximately $278.5 million principal amount of outstanding
senior subordinated notes due 2013 plus accrued interest.

Holders of approximately 93 percent of the existing notes who
voted, voted to support the pre-packaged reorganization plan.

With its restructuring plan, Morris Publishing will reduce its
overall indebtedness from approximately $415 million to
$126.5 million.

respectively.

Mr. Neil J. Katz, Chairman and CEO, noted, "In this difficult
economy the U.S. prestige fragrance industry continued to
struggle; however, we did see positive trends in the international
and mass market channels. Despite the difficult marketplace, we
continued to introduce our new brands while controlling expenses.
Although our sales increase was not as high as expected, I am
pleased that our sales grew versus last year, and were much
stronger than the trends in the fragrance category."

Mr. Katz continued, "We were also able to sell our GUESS? finished
goods inventory to our customers and Coty, and continue to
negotiate the transfer of our remaining unfinished inventory to
Coty.  Although not yet finalized, we expect to record some
charges for certain GUESS? promotional items and other unfinished
inventory.  In addition, efforts were made this quarter to
significantly reduce inventory levels of certain legacy brands,
which licenses are scheduled to expire in the near future."

Mr. Katz added, "Despite the expiration of the GUESS? license, we
remain optimistic that our new brands and product launches in the
upcoming year will provide a platform for growth and positive
results."

The Company anticipates reporting its earnings for the three and
nine months ended Dec. 31, 2009, during the second week of
February 2010, followed by the Company's quarterly investor
conference call.

QUEBECOR WORLD: Litigation Trust Files Over 1,600 Avoidance Suits
-----------------------------------------------------------------
NetDockets reports that over the past week, Eugene Davis, the
litigation trustee for the Quebecor World Litigation Trust, has
filed more than 1,600 adversary complaints instituting preference
actions against vendors and other parties-in-interest in the
bankruptcy cases of Quebecor World (USA) Inc. and its affiliates.

The Quebecor World Litigation Trust was established under the
Debtors' confirmed Plan of Reorganization for purposes of pursuing
certain claims that were contributed to the Trust under the plan.
Those contributed claims include preference actions, which are
transfers made by the debtor entities made for or on account of
antecedent debts in the 90 day period prior to their bankruptcy
filings.  Under sections 547 and 550 of the Bankruptcy Code, those
transfers are deemed preferential and recoverable by the debtors'
estates unless a valid defense exists.

NetDockets says the adversary complaints that have been filed over
the past week -- and are continuing to be filed in significant
volume -- seek to recover payments made in the 90 days prior to
the July 21, 2009 bankruptcy filings on the account that such
payments were either preferential transfers pursuant to section
547, fraudulent conveyances pursuant to section 548, and/or
recoverable postpetition transactions (because they may have
cleared after the bankruptcy filings) pursuant to section 549.
The complaints, according to NetDockets, also seek disallowance of
any claims asserted by the defendants against the debtors pursuant
to section 502(d) of the Bankruptcy Code "until such time as
Defendant pays to Plaintiff an amount equal to the aggregate
amount of All Avoided Transfers, plus interest thereon and costs."
To the extent that any such claims have already been allowed
against the debtors, the complaints seek reconsideration and
disallowance pursuant to section 502(j).  The complaints appear to
be essentially form complaints with an exhibit attached listing
the payments to the specific plaintiff that the litigation trustee
seeks to recover.

REGIS INSURANCE: A.M. Best Downgrades FSR to 'B-'
-------------------------------------------------
A.M. Best Co. has downgraded the financial strength rating to B-
(Fair) from B+ (Good) and issuer credit rating to "bb-" from
"bbb-" of Regis Insurance Company (Regis) (Wayne, PA).  The
outlook for both ratings has been revised to negative from stable.

These rating actions reflect the recent disclosure of the lack of
financial flexibility at Regis' privately held parent, Tiber
Holding Corporation (Wilmington, DE), due to that organization's
high consolidated financial leverage, lack of access to additional
capital and other operating issues.  Additionally, these rating
actions consider Regis' continued poor operating performance.

Regis' historically weak operating results largely reflect its
lack of premium scale, thus driving ongoing underwriting losses
through high expense ratios.  Somewhat offsetting these negative
rating factors are Regis' conservative underwriting leverage and
niche market expertise in the small to mid-size commercial
segment.  While underwriting results have largely been negative,
total return measures have generally been positive over a 10-year
period with consideration of capital gains.  Positive rating
factors also include management's strong underwriting culture and
insistence upon proper pricing, reserving and terms and
conditions.

The rating outlook recognizes A.M. Best's concerns that management
will be challenged to achieve an efficient operating scale, the
failure of which will negatively impact the profitability of Regis
and its ability to grow surplus.

SEQUENOM INC: Inks Deal to Resolve Class Action Lawsuit
-------------------------------------------------------
Sequenom Inc. entered into a stipulation of settlement which will
resolve the class action securities lawsuits consolidated under
the caption In re Sequenom, Inc. Securities Litigation, S.D. Cal.
Case No. 09-CV-0921 LAB, pending in the U.S. District Court for
the Southern District of California.

Attorneys for Harry Stylli, Paul Hawran, Allan T. Bombard, Charles
R. Cantor, Steven Owings, Harry F. Hixson, Jr., and Elizabeth
Dragon, all of whom were named as defendants in the consolidated
lawsuits, have also entered into the stipulation of settlement.
The stipulation of settlement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit
99.1 hereto, remains subject to preliminary and final approval by
the U.S. District Court.

Subject to final approval of the stipulation of settlement by the
U.S. District Court, in exchange for a release of all claims by
the class members and a dismissal of the consolidated lawsuits,
the Company has agreed to:

   * pay the class members and their attorneys a total of
     $14 million which will be funded from insurance proceeds,

   * issue to the class members and their attorneys shares of our
     common stock, and

   * adopt certain corporate governance measures, including an
     amendment to our Bylaws to provide that at all times a
     majority of its directors must be independent.

The number of shares of the Company's common stock to be issued
will be determined on a date to be established after final
approval of the settlement by the U.S. District Court and will
constitute 9.95% of the shares of our common stock outstanding
post-issuance, provided that certain shares issued after entry
into the stipulation of settlement, including any shares issued in
a bona fide financing, in connection with a licensing,
collaboration or acquisition transaction or pursuant to our
currently existing equity incentive plans, will be excluded from
the shares outstanding calculation.  As of December 23, 2009, we
had 61,693,241 shares of common stock outstanding, and if the
share number had been determined as of that date, we would have
been obligated to issue 6,816,743 shares of common stock pursuant
to the terms of the settlement.

In connection with the approval of the stipulation of settlement,
our board of directors implemented the agreed upon corporate
governance measures and approved the amendment to our Bylaws.

If the settlement is approved preliminarily by the U.S. District
Court, potential class members will be notified of the proposed
settlement and the procedure by which they can request to be
excluded from the class. The settlement will then be subject to
final approval by the U.S. District Court.

SINGLE TOUCH: Recurring Losses Prompt Going Concern Doubt
---------------------------------------------------------
Weaver & Martin LLC, in Kansas City, Missouri, expressed
substantial doubt about Single Touch Systems, Inc. and
subsidiaries' ability to continue as a going concern after
auditing the Company's consolidated financial statements as of and
for the years ended September 30, 2009, and 2008.

The independent public accounting firm pointed to the Company's
recurring losses and negative cash flows from operations.

The Company reported a net loss of $13,560,841 on revenue of
$813,019 for the year ended September 30, 2009, compared to a net
loss of $11,123,003 on revenue of $1,713,014 for the previous
fiscal period.

                          Balance Sheet

At September 30, 2009, the Company's consolidated balance sheets
showed $2,354,732 in total assets and $10,926,401 in total
liabilities, resulting in a $8,571,669 shareholders' deficit.

The Company's consolidated balance sheets at September 30, 2009,
also showed strained liquidity with $1,569,982 in total current
assets available to pay $6,214,001 in total current liabilities.

SINOBIOPHARMA INC: Earns $1.07 Million in November 30 Quarter
-------------------------------------------------------------
Sinobiopharma, Inc., and subsidiaries reported net income of
$1,073,550 on sales of $2,137,471 for the three months ended
November 30, 2009, compared to a net loss of $1,045,239 on sales
of $971,173 for the three months ended November 30, 2008.

The increase in sales was due to the continuing growth in sales of
Cisatracurium Besylate.  The increase in net income was due to the
increase in sales and decrease of the stock-based compensation
expense.

For the six months ended November 30, 2008, the Company reported
net income of $1,310,717 on sales of $3,431,235, compared to a net
loss of $897,376 on sales of $1,902,376 for the six months ended
November 30,2008.

                          Balance Sheet

At November 30, 2009, the Company's consolidated balance sheets
showed total assets of $6,927,840, total current liabilities of
$4,445,765, and total stockholders' equity of $2,482,075.

The Company had negative working capital of $2,565,449 at

                       Going Concern Doubt

"For the six months period ended November 30, 2009, the Company
had net income of $1,310,717, but had the cumulative losses since
commencement of operations of $6,400,562 and negative working
capital of $2,565,449 as of November 30, 2009, which raises
substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a
going concern.  The ability of the Company to meet its commitments
as they become payable is dependent on the ability of the Company
to obtain necessary financing or achieve a consistently profitable
level of operations.  There are no assurances that the Company
will be successful in achieving these goals."

SMART ONLINE: Atlas Capital Reports 39% Equity Stake
----------------------------------------------------
Atlas Capital SA discloses that as of January 4, 2010, it has
acquired, in the aggregate, 7,224,297 shares or roughly 39% of the
common stock of Smart Online Inc. either from the Company or from
other shareholders of the Company.  Atlas Capital has paid
$19,585,819.12 for the shares from corporate funds, including
56,206 shares acquired from Dennis Michael Nouri -- the former
President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company -- pursuant
to a note cancellation agreement.  In exchange for the shares
acquired from Mr. Nouri, Atlas Capital cancelled a note under
which Mr. Nouri owed Atlas Capital principal and interest totaling
$85,117.

On February 24, 2009, the Company sold convertible secured
subordinated notes due November 14, 2010, in the principal amount
of $500,000 to Atlas Capital.  Noteholders holding a majority of
the aggregate principal amount of the Notes outstanding agreed
that the Company may sell additional convertible secured
subordinated notes in an aggregate principal amount of up to
$6 million to new investors or existing Noteholders at any time on
or before December 31, 2009 with a maturity date of November 14,
2010 or later.  In addition, the definition of "Maturity Date" for
each of the Notes was changed from November 14, 2010 to the date
upon which the Note is due and payable, which is the earlier of
(1) November 14, 2010, (2) a change of control, or (3) if an event
of default occurs, the date upon which Noteholders accelerate the
indebtedness evidenced by the Notes.

On each of April 3, 2009 and June 2, 2009, the Company sold a Note
in the principal amount of $500,000 to Atlas Capital on
substantially the same terms and conditions as the previously
issued Notes.  On each of July 16, 2009, August 26, 2009,
September 8, 2009, and October 5, 2009, the Company sold a Note in
the principal amount of $250,000 to Atlas Capital on substantially
the same terms and conditions as the previously issued Notes. On
November 6, 2009, the Company sold a Note in the principal amount
of $500,000, and on December 23, 2009, the Company sold a Note in
the principal amount of $750,000, to the Reporting Person on
substantially the same terms and conditions as the previously
issued Notes.

The Company is obligated to pay interest on the Notes at an
annualized rate of 8% payable in quarterly installments commencing
three months after the purchase date of the Notes.  The Company
does not have the ability to prepay the Notes without the approval
of Noteholders holding at least a majority of the principal amount
of the Notes then outstanding.

On the earlier of November 14, 2010, or a merger or acquisition or
other transaction pursuant to which the Company's existing
stockholders hold less than 50% of the surviving entity, or the
sale of all or substantially all of the Company's assets, or
similar transaction, or event of default, each Noteholder in its
sole discretion shall have the option to:

     -- convert the principal then outstanding on its Notes into
        shares of Common Stock, or

     -- receive immediate repayment in cash of the Notes,
        including any accrued and unpaid interest.

If a Noteholder elects to convert its Notes under these
circumstances, the conversion price will be the lowest "applicable
conversion price" determined for each Note.  The "applicable
conversion price" for each Note shall be calculated by multiplying
120% by the lowest of:

     -- the average of the high and low prices of the Common Stock
        on the OTC Bulletin Board averaged over the five trading
        days prior to the closing date of the issuance of such
        Note,

     -- if the Common Stock is not traded on the Over-The-Counter
        market, the closing price of the Common Stock reported on
        the Nasdaq National Market or the principal exchange on
        which the Common Stock is listed, averaged over the five
        trading days prior to the closing date of the issuance of
        such Note, or

     -- the closing price of the Common Stock on the OTC Bulletin
        Board, the Nasdaq National Market or the principal
        exchange on which the Common Stock is listed, as
        applicable, on the trading day immediately preceding the
        date such Note is converted, in each case as adjusted for
        stock splits, dividends or combinations, recapitalizations
        similar events.

Payment of the Notes will be automatically accelerated if the
Company enters voluntary or involuntary bankruptcy or insolvency
proceedings.

Atlas Capital said it has no plans or proposals which would relate
to or result in any of these matters:

      (a) the acquisition by any person of additional securities
          of the Company, or the disposition of securities of the
          Company;

      (b) an extraordinary corporate transaction, such as a
          merger, reorganization, or liquidation, involving the
          Company or any of its subsidiaries;

      (c) a sale or transfer of a material amount of assets of the
          Company or any of its subsidiaries;

      (d) any change in the present Board of Directors or

          Board of Directors or to fill any existing vacancies
          thereon;

      (e) any material change in the present capitalization or
          dividend policy of the Company;

      (f) any other material change in the Company's business or

      (g) changes in the Company's charter, bylaws, or instruments
          corresponding thereto or other actions which may impede

          to be authorized to be quoted in an inter-dealer
          quotation system of a registered national securities
          association;

      (i) a class of equity securities of the Company becoming
          eligible for termination of registration pursuant to

SMURFIT-STONE: Calpine Corrugated Cash Use Extended Until Jan. 30
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Bankruptcy Court previously entered its final order
authorizing Calpine Corrugated LLC, one of the debtor-affiliates
of Smurfit-Stone Container Corp., to use cash collateral and
granting adequate protection to certain prepetition lenders.

The Final Order provides that Calpine Corrugated will be
authorized to use Cash Collateral solely in accordance with a
certain budget attached to the Final Order.  In addition, the
Order provides that Calpine Corrugated's authority to use Cash
Collateral will terminate upon the earliest to occur of:

   (i) January 2, 2010;

  (ii) the dismissal of Calpine Corrugated's Chapter 11 case or
       the conversion of the Chapter 11 case to a case under
       Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code;

(iii) the appointment of a trustee or examiner with expanded
       powers in Calpine Corrugated's Chapter 11 case;

  (iv) the entry of an order reversing, staying, vacating or
       otherwise modifying in any material respect the terms of
       the Final Order;

   (v) failure by Calpine Corrugated to comply with any material
       provision of the Final Order, as determined by the Court
       pursuant to a final order after notice and a hearing;

  (vi) any misrepresentation of a material fact made after the
       Petition Date by any of the Debtors or their agents to
       the Prepetition Lenders about (a) the financial condition
       of Calpine Corrugated, (b) the nature, extent, location
       or quality of any Prepetition Collateral, or (c) the
       disposition or use of any Prepetition Collateral,
       including the Cash Collateral, in each case as determined
       by the Court pursuant to a final order after notice and a
       hearing;

(vii) the sale after the Petition Date of any portion of
       Calpine Corrugated's assets outside the ordinary course
       of business without the prior written consent of the
       Prepetition Lenders, each in its sole discretion; and

(viii) the failure by Calpine Corrugated to comply with any
       material terms of the Prepetition Credit Agreements after
       the Petition Date.

Subsequently, the Debtors asked that the Prepetition Lenders
consent to an extension of the Scheduled Termination Date to
permit Calpine Corrugated to continue using Cash Collateral in
accordance with the terms and conditions of the Final Order and a
13-week budget.

A copy of the Budget is available for free at:

          http://bankrupt.com/misc/SmrftCC13wkBud.pdf

However, Union Bank asked the Debtors to limit an extension to
four weeks, through and including January 30, 2010, in order to
give Union Bank additional time to analyze the Extended Budget,
without prejudice to the Debtors' ability to seek a further
extension of the Scheduled Termination Date.

In a Court-approved stipulation, the Debtors, Union Bank, and the
CIT Group/Equipment Financing, Inc. agree that effective as of
January 2, 2010, (i) the Scheduled Termination Date, the Budget
Period, and Calpine Corrugated's authority to use Cash Collateral
will be extended through and including January 30, 2010, and (ii)
the Extended Budget, for the period from January 2, 2010, through
and including January 30, 2010, will constitute the Budget.

Chase Bank, N.A., J.P. Morgan Securities, Inc., Deutsche Bank
Securities Inc. and Banc of America Securities LLC.

As previously reported, the Debtors filed revised versions of
their Joint Plan of Reorganization and Disclosure Statement for
the Joint Plan of Reorganization.  A hearing to consider approval
of the Disclosure Statement is scheduled for January 29, 2010.

James F. Conlan, Esq., at Sidley Austin LLP, in Chicago,
Illinois, notes that a key element of the restructuring
contemplated by the Plan is the availability of exit financing
that provides sufficient funding for the Debtors to meet their
cash obligations and to have sufficient working capital for their
business operations and general corporate purposes.

The Plan specifically provides that certain of the Debtors will
enter into definitive documentation for their exit financing on
or prior to the effective date of the Plan.  Mr. Conlan contends
that entry into the Term Loan Arrangement Documents constitutes
the first step in arranging a $1,200,000,000 exit term loan
facility for the Debtors.

The Term Facility will be a new six-year senior secured term loan
facility.  The term loans made under the Term Facility will be
repayable in equal quarterly installments for five years and nine
months and will equal one percent of its original principal
amount, with the balance payable at maturity.  The Term Loan
Commitments will terminate if the Funding Date has not occurred
on or prior to the date that is five months after the closing
date.

The Term Loans will be available in a single drawing on the
effective date of the Plan and interest will accrue on a per
annum basis, at the option of the company, at (i) the Libor rate
for the applicable interest period, subject to a two percent
floor, plus five percent or (ii) highest of the prime rate, the
federal funds rate plus 0.5% and the one month Libor rate plus
one percent, subject to a three percent floor, plus four percent.

The Term Loans will be secured by a first priority lien on
substantially all assets of the Debtors and a pledge of capital
stock of all material subsidiaries and a second priority lien on
accounts receivable, inventory and related assets.

Pursuant to the Arrangement Letter:

  * J.P. Morgan, DBSI, and BAS will act as joint bookrunners for
    the Term Loan Facility;

  * J.P. Morgan, DBSI, and BAS will act as co-lead arrangers;

  * JPMCB will act as administrative agent and collateral agent;
    and

  * DBSI will act as syndication agent.

The Arrangement Letter also provides that the Debtors will
indemnify the Arrangement Parties and will reimburse the
Arrangement Parties for reasonable out-of-pocket expenses.

The Arrangement Letter will automatically terminate, unless the
parties thereto, in their sole discretion, agree to an extension,
(i) if a definitive credit agreement is entered into with respect
to the Term Loan Facility on the stated date on which the lending
commitments under the credit agreement expire by their terms
without the funding date having occurred or (ii) on June 30,
2010, if no definitive credit agreement is entered into with
respect to the Term Loan Facility.

In return for the Arrangement Parties' undertakings, the Debtors
have agreed, among other things, to enter into a certain
Arrangement Fee Letter, pursuant to which the Debtors agree to
pay to J.P. Morgan an arrangement fee based on $1,200,000,000 or
a lesser amount of commitments as are raised by the Arrangement
Parties.

Mr. Conlan tells the Court that once the Term Loan Arrangement
Documents are executed and approved, the Arrangement Parties and
the Debtors will seek commitments from prospective lenders in
respect of the Term Loan Facility, and the Debtors and
Arrangement Parties will negotiate the definitive documentation
for the Term Loan Facility, including a credit agreement.  He
adds that the Debtors will separately seek the Court's authority
to enter into a definitive credit agreement in respect of the
Term Loan Facility at the appropriate time.

A copy of the term sheet is available for free at:

          Parties Want to Seal Arrangement Fee Letter

In a separate filing, the Debtors and the Arrangement Parties
sought and obtained Court approval to file under seal the
Arrangement Fee Letter because it contains information that is
both commercially sensitive to the Debtors and the Arrangement
Parties.

Mr. Conlan relates that the Debtors will disclose the Arrangement
Fee Letter to the United States Trustee, the Official Committee
of Unsecured Creditors, and other necessary parties.

The sealed Arrangement Fee Letter was filed on January 14, 2009.

Prior to this, the Debtors and the Arrangement Parties sought and
obtained a Court order shortening the time for notice of their
Request.

SMURFIT-STONE: IRS Wants Interest Payments for Tax Claims
---------------------------------------------------------
On behalf of the Internal Revenue Service, Yonatan Gelblum, Esq.,
trial attorney, tax division of the U.S. Department of Justice,
contends that the provisions of Smurfit-Stone Container Corp.'s
Chapter 11 Plan of Reorganization regarding payment of the IRS'
priority tax claims do not provide for the payment of interest on
the claims should the Debtors opt to pay the claims over time.

Fundamental time-value-of-money principles instruct that the
United States will not receive the total "value" of its priority
tax claims at the Plan's effective date, as required by Section
1129(a)(9)(C) of the Bankruptcy Code, unless the Plan provides an
appropriate rate of interest on any deferred payment of the
United States' priority tax claims, Mr. Gelblum tells the Court.

IRS further objects to the provisions of the Plan regarding
payment of the IRS' administrative tax claims because they do not
provide for the payment of interest on the claims should the
Debtors not timely pay the claims.

Mr. Gelblum asserts that the Plan must provide that, to the
extent payment of administrative taxes is not made as of the date
the tax is due, interest will be paid on the taxes at the then-
current underpayment rate.

For these reasons, the IRS asks the Court to deny confirmation of
the Plan.

Smurfit-Stone filed its Plan of Reorganization on December 1 and
plans to emerge from restructuring proceedings in both the United
States and Canada either late in the first quarter or early in the
second quarter of 2010.  Under the Plan, unsecured creditors of
the operating debtors will receive shares of stock and stock
holders of the Smurfit-Stone entities will retain their interests.

SMURFIT-STONE: Sees $124-Mil. Net Loss This Year; Profit in 2011
----------------------------------------------------------------
Smurfit-Stone Container Corp. estimates a $124 million net loss in
2010 will turn to a $43 million profit in 2011, Bill Rochelle at
Bloomberg News reported, citing projections given to prospective
lenders.  In a presentation aimed at securing $1.2 billion in
financing to exit bankruptcy reorganization, the Company estimates
that earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and
amortization of $384 million in 2010 will become EBITDA of
$655 million in 2014 when net income is projected to be $134
million.  The preliminary results for 2009 show a net loss of $209
million and $441 million in EBITDA.  Given two profitable quarters
in 2009, the projected net loss for the year will result from a
projected fourth quarter 2009 loss of $221 million.

Smurfit-Stone filed its Plan of Reorganization on December 1 and
plans to emerge from restructuring proceedings in both the United

TOUSA INC: Gets Approval for Amendment to CIGNA Pact
----------------------------------------------------
TOUSA, Inc., sought and obtained the Court's authority to enter
into an amendment to an Administrative Services Only Agreement
with Connecticut General Life Insurance Company or "CIGNA".

As previously reported, the Prepetition Employee Obligations
Order authorized the Debtors to continue all wage and benefit
programs, including an insurance coverage provided by CIGNA.
Moreover, TOUSA provides to its employees two separate medical
insurance plans: the Preferred Provider Option and the CIGNA Fund
Health Reimbursement Arrangement.  TOUSA also provides a dental
insurance plan PPO through CIGNA.  Each of these plans is
provided through the Administrative Services Only Agreement
entered into between TOUSA and CIGNA.  The Agreement was set to
expire last December 31, 2009.

In this light, TOUSA, with the assistance of its insurance
broker, contacted five insurance carriers to determine whether
any carrier was willing to provide health insurance coverage to
the Debtors after expiration of the Administrative Services Only
Agreement, Paul Steven Singerman, Esq., at Berger Singerman,
P.A., in Miami, Florida, stated.  However, all these efforts were
unsuccessful and it became evident that the benefit program
provided by CIGNA was the only available option for continuing
health insurance coverage, Mr. Singerman noted.

Thus, TOUSA entered into arm's-length negotiations with CIGNA to
extend the term of the Services Agreement and maintain the health
insurance plans provided to its employees.  As a result of those
negotiations, the Parties ultimately entered into an Amendment.

The salient terms of the Amendment are:

  (a) The term of the Administrative Services Only Agreement
      will be extended until March 31, 2010, at which time the
      Agreement will automatically terminate unless terminated
      sooner pursuant to the termination provisions of the
      Agreement;

  (b) The terms of the Services Agreement will be extended if
      these conditions are met:

         -- The administrative fess for January 1, 2010, through
            March 31, 2010, will be $76,312.  The administrative
            fees for processing run out claims for an additional
            three months after termination of the Agreement will
            be $76,312.  These fees, totaling $152,624 are to be
            paid to CIGNA by or before December 31, 2009;

         -- All other fees in the Services Agreement will be due
            and payable per the term of the Agreement and will
            be current as of December 31, 2009;

         -- All prepetition amounts due to CIGNA by TOUSA will
            be paid and received by December 31, 2009;

         -- Payment of the "Stop Loss" premiums will be current
            as of December 31, 2009; and

         -- TOUSA will have obtained any and all necessary
            approvals from the Court for the Amendment and the
            related obligations before December 31, 2009;

(c) The Benefit Plan bank account will be maintained at all
    times at the required level of $437,000, funded weekly.  If
    at any time the Bank Account becomes overdrawn, the
    Agreement will terminate immediately without further notice
    and CIGNA will stop paying claims; and

(d) If the Agreement is made effective through March 31, 2010,
    CIGNA agrees to process run out claims from three months
    from the date of termination provided that TOUSA maintains
    the interest amount in the Bank Account at the required
    level of $437,000.

Mr. Singerman maintained that TOUSA's entry into the Amendment
will allow it to continue providing health and dental insurance
coverage to its employees, which is important to ensure that
remaining employees receive necessary benefits during their
continued employment.

TOUSA INC: Has Protocol for 1,200 Adversary Proceedings
-------------------------------------------------------
TOUSA Inc. and its units intend to commence about 1,200 adversary
proceedings to avoid and recover transfers they made to certain
parties within the 90 days before the Petition Date.

To that end, the Debtors have established proposed categories for
Adversary Proceedings based on the amount of money sought to be
recovered:

       Adversary                  Amounts to be
         Track                      Recovered
       ----------             ---------------------
          I                      $25,000 to $50,000
          II                    $50,001 to $100,000
          III                  $100,001 to $250,000
          IV                     more than $250,000

The Debtors further propose these uniform procedures for the
Adversary Proceedings:

  (a) Each complaint will be labeled with its applicable track
      number;

  (b) The Debtor will serve all Track I, II, III, and IV
      summonses and complaints on or before "day 30," 2010; and

  (c) Answers or other responses permitted by the Federal Rules
      of Bankruptcy Procedure are to be filed by "day 60," 2010.

The Debtors propose a form of Summons and Notice of
Pretrial/Trial in an Adversary Proceeding, as modified from the
Court's local summons form to conform to the proposed procedures
regarding the deadline for filing responses to the Adversary
Complaints.

The Debtors also propose the form of an Order Setting Filing and
Disclosure Requirements for Pretrial and Trial for each of tracks
of the Adversary Proceedings.  The Proposed Orders Setting Pre-
trial Requirements will include these deadlines, expressed as the
number of days from the deadline of service of respective
summonses and complaints:

                           Track I Track II Track III Track IV
Event                      Days      Days     Days     Days
-----                     ------- -------- --------- --------
Rule 26(a)(1) disclosures   125      145       165      185
Pleading Amendments         140      160       180      200
Expert Reports              165      185       210      225
Discovery Completion        220      240       265      280
Dispositive Motions         250      270       295      310
Final Pre-trial             280      300       325      340

The Pretrial Requirements Proposed Orders will also provide that
all motions and other matters concerning Track I, Track II, Track
III and Track IV Adversary Proceedings will be heard only at
previously scheduled omnibus hearings in these Adversary
Procedures.

In addition, the Debtors ask the Court to enter an order
referring each of the Adversary Proceedings to mandatory
mediation.  The Debtors urge the Court to adopt the Delaware
Bankruptcy Court's Standing Order of April 7, 2004, as revised,
making claims to avoid preferential transfers subject to
mandatory mediation in these Adversary Proceedings and in
addition, that the Debtors' bankruptcy estates pay for all
mediation costs.

The Debtors believe that proposed procedures will promote
efficient resolution of the Adversary Proceedings consistent with
Rule 1001 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure.

Accordingly, by this motion, the Debtors ask the Court to:

  (a) approve their proposed procedures and deadlines for the
      Adversary Proceedings Protocol;

  (b) approve the form of Summons with respect to each of the
      Adversary Proceedings;

  (c) direct the Summonses to be issued in the form proposed in
      connection with each of the Adversary Proceedings;

  (d) approve the form of the Proposed Orders Setting Pretrial
      Requirements;

  (e) schedule omnibus hearing dates for motions and other
      matters; and

  (f) select the mediators who will be handling the mediation of
      the Adversary Proceedings.

TOUSA INC: Proposes Waterford Waiver Agreement
----------------------------------------------
TOUSA Inc. and its affiliates ask the Bankruptcy Court to
authorize Debtor TOUSA Homes, Inc.'s entry into a Conveyance,
Waiver and Release of Liability Agreement with Waterford Estates
Community Development District.

Waterford Estates is a residential development of TOUSA Homes
located in Charlotte County, Florida.  TOUSA Homes currently owns
112 lots within Waterford Estates.

In connection with the development of Waterford Estates, the
Waterford CDD was authorized under applicable Florida law to
impose special assessments to help pay for local improvements
that benefited Waterford Estates.  To that end, on May 4 and
July 14, 2006, the Waterford CDD passed resolutions authorizing
it to undertake certain capital improvement projects and, in
connection with the funding for those projects, approving special
assessments against the lots within Waterford Estates owned by
TOUSA Homes.

In addition to the assessments, for the purpose of funding the
various improvements within Waterford Estates, the CDD issued
$8,500,000 in aggregate principal amount of Special Assessment
Bonds, Series 2006A, as well as $10,000,000 in aggregate
principal amount of Special Assessment Bonds, Series 2006B.  The
2006 Bonds were issued pursuant to a master trust indenture among
the CDD and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee.  The
Series 2006A Bonds are due May 1, 2037; the Series 2006B Bonds
are due May 1, 2013.  Repayment of the 2006 Bonds was secured by
the special assessments imposed upon property owners pursuant to
the Assessment Resolutions.

Paul Steven Singerman, Esq., at Berger Singerman, P.A., in Miami,
Florida, discloses that TOUSA Homes has failed to satisfy its
obligations to pay the special assessments to the Waterford CDD.
As a result, the Waterford CDD asserted that all of TOUSA Homes'
assessments associated with the Real Property, which total
$2.1 million, are due and payable, together with statutory
penalties and the CDD's attorney fees.

Thus, in May 2008, the Waterford CDD filed Claim No. 2689 against
TOUSA Homes, asserting a secured claim for $2,176,999.  Under the
current market conditions, the CDD claim exceeds the market value
of the Real Property, according to Mr. Singerman.

TOUSA Homes also entered into several additional funding and
management services agreements with the Waterford CDD in
connection with the development of Waterford Estates.  The CDD
has asserted that TOUSA Homes' failure to satisfy the TOUSA Homes
Assessments has triggered its foreclosure rights with respect to
the Real Property.

Thus, to avoid a lift stay request and a foreclosure proceeding
with respect to the Real Property and to resolve all existing
disputes, TOUSA Homes and the Waterford CDD entered into the
Agreement, whereby:

(a) TOUSA Homes will execute and deliver to Billing, Cochran,
     Lyles, Mauro & Ramsey, P.A., as escrow agent, a Quit Claim
     Deed, and a Bill of Sale and Assignment.  Pursuant to the
     Deed and the Bill of Sale, TOUSA Homes will convey to the
     Waterford CDD, or its designee:

      -- the Real Property and all buildings, structures and
         Improvements located on the Real Property;

      -- TOUSA Homes' rights and interest in and to, among other
         things, any assignable licenses, permits, development
         rights, construction or performance bonds relating to
         the use, operation or maintenance of the premises;

      -- all fixtures, furniture, equipment, appliances and
         other types and items of personal property used in
         connection with the operation of the Premises and owned
         by TOUSA Homes;

      -- all of TOUSA Homes' right and interest in, among
         others, all construction contracts, plans and records
         concerning the Premises, including all architectural,
         mechanical and electrical plans and specifications; and

      -- all intangible personal property owned by TOUSA Homes
         and used in connection with the Premises and the name
         "Waterford Estates;"

  (b) The Agreement is subject to entry of an order approving
      the contemplated transactions.  Upon entry of the Order,
      the Escrow Agent will deliver the Deed and Bill of Sale to
      the Waterford CDD and the transaction set forth under the
      Agreement will be deemed closed;

  (c) Upon the Closing Date, the Waterford CDD will be deemed to
      forever waive and release TOUSA Homes and its officers
      from any and all obligations with respect to:

       -- the assessments adopted pursuant to the Assessment
          Resolutions or the administration of the Assessments
          or any other obligations to the District;

       -- any or all of the transactions, which are the subject
          of the Assessment Resolutions or the Bond Documents or
          any other agreements between the Waterford CDD and
          TOUSA Homes;

       -- the Real Property; or

       -- any fact, matter or transaction pertaining to the
          obligations, including any and all monetary damage
          claims against TOUSA Homes under the Bond Documents or
          any other agreements between the District and TOUSA
          Homes.

      Pursuant to the Agreement, the Waterford CDD agrees not to
      sue or assert liability against the TOUSA Parties for
      breach of any covenant under any agreement between the CDD
      and TOUSA Homes or any covenant in the Bond Documents that
      is not included under the Agreement; and

  (d) The Waterford District will withdraw its Claim.

Mr. Singerman says that in connection with the Debtors' new
business plan, the Debtors do not intend to further develop the
Real Property within Waterford Estates.  However, the failure to
pay the TOUSA Homes Assessments has triggered the possibility of
foreclosure on the Real Property, which foreclosure would be
expensive and time consuming.  Against this backdrop, Mr.
Singerman points out, the Agreement will resolve all of the
Waterford CDD's outstanding claims concerning Waterford Estates,
thus avoiding the costs and expenses associated with litigation
and foreclosure that were inevitable absent the Agreement.

The Debtors' request was set to be considered at a hearing on
January 13, 2010.

UNIGENE LABORATORIES: Delays Effective Date of Shelf Prospectus

Common Stock; Warrants to purchase common stock, debt securities
or units; Rights to purchase common stock, debt securities or
units; Debt Securities; and Units.

In a Form S-3 registration statement filed in December, the
Company said it intends to use the net proceeds from the sale of
the securities for general corporate purposes and other working
capital expenditures.  Unigene will sell the securities to or
through underwriters or dealers, directly to a limited number of
purchasers or a single purchaser, through agents or through a
combination of any of these methods of sale, as designated from
time to time.  If any agents or underwriters are involved in the

                       Going Concern Doubt

At September 30, 2009, the Company's consolidated balance sheets
showed $25,838,000 in total assets and $56,333,000 in total
liabilities, resulting in a $30,495,000 shareholders' deficit.

"We need additional cash from increases in Fortical sales or
royalties, milestones from existing agreements or upfront payments
from new agreements or from financings in order to meet our near-
term obligations."  This raises substantial doubt about the
Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

The Company's independent registered public accounting firm has
added an explanatory paragraph to their audit opinion issued in
connection with the financial statements for each of the years
ended December 31, 2008, 2007, and 2006, concerning the
substantial doubt about Unigene Laboratories' ability to continue
as a going concern.

US AIRWAYS: 1st Circuit Rules on Rederford ADA Lawsuit
------------------------------------------------------
In the matter entitled Rederford v. U.S. Airways, Inc. pending
before the 1st Circuit Court of Appeals, the Court ruled on
December 17, 2009, that:

    "A terminated airline employee's cause of action for
    Disability discrimination under the Americans with
    Disabilities Act (ADA) was a "claim" discharged in the
    airline's Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceeding.  Although the
    employee asserted that she was entitled to the equitable
    remedy of reinstatement, that remedy could be reduced to
    money damages in the alternative.  As such, the cause of
    action was subject to discharge under the bankruptcy code's
    broad definition of "claim."

US AIRWAYS: Reports December Traffic Results
--------------------------------------------
US Airways Group, Inc., announced December, fourth quarter and
full-year 2009 traffic results.  Mainline revenue passenger miles
(RPMs) for the month were 4.5 billion, down 3.6 percent versus
December 2008.  Capacity was 5.7 billion available seat miles
(ASMs), down 2.4 percent versus December 2008.  Passenger load
factor for the month of December was 79.3 percent, down 1.0 point
versus December 2008.

US Airways President Scott Kirby said, "Our December consolidated
(mainline and Express) passenger revenue per available seat mile
(PRASM) decreased approximately two percent versus the same period
last year while total revenue per available seat mile decreased
approximately one percent on a year-over-year basis.  As we close
calendar year 2009, we are pleased our revenue performance
continued to show improvement with positive trends in both booked
yields and corporate revenue.

"We would also like to thank our 32,000 employees for their
tremendous efforts to take care of our customers during a
challenging holiday travel period.  We continued our strong
operational performance throughout 2009 and look forward to
building upon that momentum into 2010."

Department of Transportation (DOT), US Airways was number one in
on-time performance among the nation's five largest network
carriers.  For the month of December, US Airways' preliminary on-
time performance as reported to the DOT was 75.2 percent with a
completion factor of 96.9 percent.  Adverse winter weather and
new TSA-mandated security protocols impacted these metrics.

quarter and full-year ended December 31, 2009 and 2008, consisting
of mainline operated flights as well as US Airways Express flights
operated by wholly owned subsidiaries PSA Airlines and Piedmont

                    January 6 Investor Update

US Airways Group, Inc., delivered to the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission, on January 6, 2010, a report updating its
financial and operational outlook for 2009:

* Fleet/Liquidity Changes - On November 24, 2009 the Company
  announced that it had restructured its existing aircraft
  delivery schedule.  The Company's actions included the
  deferral of 54 Airbus aircraft previously scheduled for
  delivery between 2010 and 2012 that are now to be delivered in
  2013 and beyond.  The Company will take delivery of two A320
  and two A330 aircraft in 2010 and an additional 24 A320 family
  aircraft in 2011 and 2012 (12 in the second half of 2011 and
  12 in the second half of 2012).  These deferrals will not
  significantly alter the airline's capacity plans as aircraft
  originally scheduled to be replaced will be retained until the
  rescheduled new aircraft delivery dates.

  These deferral arrangements will reduce the Company's aircraft
  capital expenditures over the next three years by
  approximately $2.5 billion, and reduce near- and medium-term
  obligations to Airbus and others by approximately
  $132 million.

* 2009 Capacity Guidance - For 2009, domestic mainline capacity
  was down approximately eight percent while total mainline
  capacity was down approximately five percent.  Express
  capacity was down approximately four percent.

  US Airways entered into a term sheet to sell 10 of its Embraer
  190 aircraft to Republic Airline Inc.  As of November 24,
  2009, all of the 10 aircraft sales have been completed.  US
  Airways will lease back eight of the 10 aircraft from Republic
  for periods ranging from one to seven months.  The impact to
  mainline capacity was immaterial for 2009.  The Company
  continues to evaluate other options for the remaining 15
  Embraer 190 aircraft.  In addition, the Company expects to
  incur a non-operating special charge (non-cash) of
  approximately $49 million related to this transaction.

* Cash - As of September 30, 2009, the Company had approximately
  $2.0 billion in total cash and investments, of which
  $0.5 billion was restricted.  In addition, as of September 30,
  2009, the Company's Auction Rate Securities had a book value
  of $228 million ($411 million par value).  While these
  securities are held as investments in non-current marketable
  securities on our balance sheet, they are included in the
  unrestricted cash calculation.  During the third quarter, the
  Company completed an underwritten public stock offering, which
  included the sale of 29 million shares of common stock at a
  price of $4.75 per share.  The net proceeds from this
  transaction after transaction costs, were approximately
  $137 million and are included in the total cash and investments
  balance.  The Company expects to end the fourth quarter with
  approximately $2.0 billion in total cash and investments, of
  which $0.5 billion is restricted.

* Fuel - The Company's legacy fuel hedge positions are now
  closed and the Company has not entered into any new hedge
  contracts since the third quarter, 2008.  For the fourth
  quarter 2009, the Company anticipates paying between $2.03 and
  $2.08 per gallon of jet fuel (including taxes).

* Profit Sharing/CASM - Profit sharing equals 10% of pre-tax
  earnings excluding special items up to a 10% pre-tax margin
  and 15% above the 10% margin.

* Cargo/Other Revenue - cargo revenue, ticket change fees,
  excess/overweight baggage fees, first and second bag fees,
  contract services, simulator rental, airport clubs, Materials
  Services Company (MSC), and inflight service revenues.  The
  Company's a la carte revenue initiatives are expected to
  generate in excess of $400 million in revenue in 2009.

* Taxes/NOL - As of December 31, 2008, the Company had
  approximately $1.4 billion of gross net operating loss
  carryforwards to reduce federal taxable income, substantially
  all of which are available to reduce taxable income in 2009.
  In the first nine months of 2009, the Company recognized a tax
  loss, which increased Federal NOL available to approximately
  $2.2 billion as of September 30, 2009.

The Company's net deferred tax asset, which includes the NOL, is
subject to a full valuation allowance.  As a result, income tax
benefits are not recognized in the Company's statement of
operations.  Future utilization of the NOL will result in a
corresponding decrease in the valuation allowance and offset the
Company's tax provision dollar for dollar.  As of September 30,
2009, the Company's federal valuation allowance is $595 million
and the state valuation allowance is $88 million.

The Company reported a loss in the nine months ended
September 30, 2009, and did not recognize a tax provision in this
period.  To the extent profitable for the full year 2009, the
Company will use NOL to reduce federal and state taxable income.
The Company does not expect to be subject to AMT liability in
2009; however, it could be obligated to record and pay state
income tax related to certain states where NOL may be limited or
not available to be used.

WAVE SYSTEMS: Gets $5.7MM in Maintenance Orders for Automaker
-------------------------------------------------------------
Wave Systems Corp. has received a series of significant license
and maintenance orders for its EMBASSY(R) Remote Administration
Server (ERAS) software for a U.S.-based automotive company for
managing its worldwide employees' laptop computers equipped with
hardware-based, self-encrypting drives for the protection of
sensitive customer, financial, competitive and other confidential
data.

The orders were received by Wave through an OEM partner in late
December and total approximately $5.7 million.  On average, the
orders account for tens of thousands of new licenses per year for
each of the next three years, along with maintenance orders for
each of the next five years.  The orders include approximately
$1.9 million for software licenses (and annual maintenance)
delivered and invoiced at the end of 2009; approximately
$2.25 million for additional software licenses (and annual
maintenance) to be delivered and invoiced at the end of 2010;
approximately $1.07 million for additional software licenses (and
annual maintenance) to be delivered and invoiced at the end of
2011 and for annual maintenance to be invoiced at the end of 2012
and 2013, respectively.  Consistent with Wave's revenue
recognition policies for licenses and maintenance, the orders are
expected to be recognized as revenue over a 365-day period from
the date of invoice.  Non-invoiced orders are cancellable on 30
days notice to Wave.

Steven Sprague, President and CEO of Wave Systems, commented,
"These orders -- which are by far our largest to date for ERAS
software -- acknowledge the importance and value of securing
mission-critical corporate data using hardware encryption."

Wave's EMBASSY Trusted Drive Manager client software, which works
in conjunction with ERAS, comes bundled with each self-encrypting
drive available through certain PC OEMs.

In addition to self-encrypting drives, ERAS can also manage
Trusted Platform Modules (TPMs), widely deployed security chips
that can securely authenticate users and devices.  In 2009 the TPM
was recognized as an international standard by the International
Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International
Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).

                       About Wave Systems

Wave Systems Corp. -- http://www.wave.com/-- develops, produces
and markets products for hardware-based digital security,
including security applications and services that are
complementary to and work with the specifications of the Trusted
Computing Group -- http://www.trustedcomputinggroup.org/-- an
industry standards organization comprised of computer and device
manufacturers, software vendors and other computing products
manufacturers.  Specifications developed by the TCG are designed
to address a broad range of current and evolving digital security
issues.  The issues include: identity protection, data security,
digital signatures, electronic transaction integrity, platform
trustworthiness, network security and regulatory compliance.

                          Going Concern

At September 30, 2009, the Company had $5,607,313 in total assets
against $7,088,090 in total liabilities, resulting in
stockholders' deficit of $1,480,777.  The September 30 balance
sheet showed strained liquidity: The Company had $5,197,098 in
total assets against $6,888,675 in total liabilities.

Wave has said it may not have sufficient cash to fund operations
for the 12-months ending September 30, 2010, and may engage in
financing activities to generate additional funding to cover its
operating costs for the 12-months ending September 30, 2010.

Due to Wave's current cash position, its capital needs over the
next year and beyond and the uncertainty as to whether Wave will
achieve its sales forecast for its products and services,
substantial doubt exists with respect to Wave's ability to
continue as a going concern.

WHITEHALL JEWELERS: Can Use Term Lenders Cash Until February 28
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Kevin Gross of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District
of Delaware authorized WJ Holdings Liquidating Company fka
Whitehall Jewelers Holdings, Inc., et al., to:

   -- use their term lenders' cash collateral until February 28,
      2010, in accordance with the budget; and

   -- make distribution to PWJ Lending II LLC, as agent for the
      term lenders, from cash on hand.

A hearing on the Debtors' use of the cash collateral beyond
February 28 will be held on February 23, 2010, at 11:00 a.m.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on January 5, 2010,
the Debtors requested for an extension until March 31, 2010.

The Debtors would use the cash collateral to fund their business
postpetition.

The Debtors also related that they are addressing their remaining
wind-down issues, including the pursuit of the remaining assets,
and the reconciliation of, objection to or settlement of claims
asserted against their estates.  The Debtors are in discussions
with PWJ and the creditors committee with respect to the final
resolution of the Debtors' estates and the ultimate disposition of
the Debtors' cases.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on March 25, 2009,
the Debtors related that the payment of the interim distribution
to PWJ will not prejudice the Debtors since up to $15 million of
PWJ's secured claims is entitled to priority in payment over
allowed unsecured claims in accordance with the Global Settlement
Agreement among the Debtors, the Debtors' pre- and postpetition
lenders, the Committee of Unsecured Creditors, and various
participating consignment vendors.  The Global Settlement
Agreement resolved fully and finally all disputes concerning,
among other things, competing interests in the Debtors' consigned
merchandise, well as certain other claims among the parties.

WORKSTREAM INC: Posts $341,000 Net Loss in November 30 Quarter
--------------------------------------------------------------
Workstream Inc. reported a net loss of $341,132 on net revenues of
$5,030,119 for the three months ended November 30, 2009, compared
to a net loss of $1,349,629 on net revenues of $5,144,323 for the
same period ended November 30, 2008.

For the six months ended November 30, 2009, the Company had net
revenues of $9,241,864 and a net loss of $701,014, compared to net
revenues of $10,697,209 and a net loss of $3,401,202 for the same
period ended November 30, 2008.

                          Balance Sheet

At November 30, 2009, the Company's consolidated balance sheets
showed $23,304,765 in total assets and $30,626,859 in total
liabilities, resulting in a $7,322,094 shareholders' deficit.

The Company's consolidated balance sheets at November 30, 2009,
also showed strained liquidity with $4,915,174 in total current
assets available to pay $8,402,764 in total current liabilities.

As of November 30, 2009, the Company has approximately $1,194,000
in cash and cash equivalents, which primarily consists of deposits
held with banks, compared to approximately $1,644,000 at May 31,
2009.  The decrease was primarily due to funding for the rewards
programs and seasonal lack of annual billings in the first quarter
of each fiscal year.

A full-text copy of the Company's quarterly report on Form 10-Q is
available at no charge at http://researcharchives.com/t/s?4d89

                       Going Concern Doubt

The opinion of the Company's independent registered public
accounting firm on the audited financial statements as of and for
the year ended May 31, 2009, contained an explanatory paragraph
regarding substantial doubt about the Company's ability to
continue as a going concern.

The Company has incurred substantial losses in recent periods and,
as a result, has a shareholders' deficit of $7,322,094 as of
November 30, 2009.  Losses for the six months ended November 30,
2009 were $701,014 and losses for the years ended May 31, 2009,
and 2008, were $4,856,356 and $52,616,875, respectively.

"The Company's ability to continue as a going concern depends upon
its ability to successfully refinance approximately $21.6 million
of its senior secured notes payable, including accrued interest
thereon, generate positive cash flows from operations and obtain
sufficient additional financing, if necessary.  The senior secured
notes went into default on May 22, 2009, due to the Company's
suspension of trading on the NASDAQ Stock Market as a result of
its shareholders' deficit.  Such Notes were restructured on
December 11, 2009."

WP HICKMAN: Court to Consider Plan Confirmation Tomorrow, Jan. 21
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. M. Bruce McCullough of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Western District of Pennsylvania will consider on January 21,
2010, at 10:30 a.m. (EST), the confirmation of W.P. Hickman
Systems, Inc., et al.'s Plan of Liquidation.  The hearing will be
held at Courtroom B, 54th Floor U.S. Steel Tower, 600 Grant
Street, Pittsburg, Pennsylvania.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on November 11, 2009,
according to the Disclosure Statement, the Plan divides the Claims
against the Debtors into 5 Classes and designates the equity
interests in the Debtors as a separate Class:

Class 1 - Secured Claims.  Each holder of an allowed secured
claim, will receive, at the option of the Reorganized Debtors, and
in full satisfaction of the claim.

Class 2 - Priority Non-Tax Claims.  Each holder of an allowed
priority non-tax claim, if any, will receive cash in an amount
equal to 100% of the unpaid amount of their respective allowed
priority non-tax claim.

Class 3 - FirstMerit Unsecured Claim.  Specifically, pursuant to
the Bankruptcy Court's final order dated Feb. 27, 2009, FirstMerit
will have an allowed non-priority general unsecured claim in the
total amount of $2,105,604.  FirstMerit will receive, prior to any
distribution to holders of General unsecured claims, priority tax
claims, and priority non-tax claims, but after payment in full of:
(i) all fees and expenses of litigation and otherwise monetizing
the proceeds; and (ii) all allowed administrative claims, the
first $300,000, plus the priority FirstMerit claim, from the
proceeds of any causes of action as the amount become available.

Class 4 - General Unsecured Claims.  Each holder of an allowed
general unsecured claim will receive, in one or more distributions
as permitted under the Plan, the lesser of (i) cash in an amount
equal to 100% of the unpaid amount of their allowed general
unsecured claim, or (ii) their ratable proportion of the Debtor's
cash.

Class 5 - Warranty Claims.  Holders of Warranty Claims will not
receive any distribution.

Class 6 - Equity Interests.  All equity interests will be deemed
cancelled and extinguished.  Holders of equity interests will not
receive any distribution.

Under the Plan, holders of Class 3 Claim and Class 4 Claims will
receive a distribution in an amount less than the amount they are
owed.  Accordingly, holders of Claims in Class 3 and Class 4 are
impaired and are entitled to vote to accept or reject the Plan.
Class 1 and Class 2 are not impaired under the Plan and,
therefore, are not entitled to vote on it.  Class 5 and Class 6
are impaired, but because those Classes will likely receive no
distribution under the Plan, holders of Warranty Claims and Equity
Interests are not entitled to vote on the Plan.  Thus, the Debtors
will not solicit votes from members of Classes 1, 2, 5 and 6.

The Reorganized Debtors will use the Remaining Assets in order to
fund the Plan.  The Reorganized Debtors will continue prosecuting
and commence any other causes of action and will liquidate any
remaining assets and use the proceeds of the litigation and sales
to fund the Plan.  Liquidation and sales of remaining assets after
the Effective Date will not be subject to further Bankruptcy Court
Order, provided however, consistent with section 6.10 of the Plan,
settlement of any Causes of Action will be subject to approval of
the Bankruptcy Court if the amount claimed by the Reorganized
Debtors against a defendant is unliquidated or equals to or
exceeds $100,000.  The Reorganized Debtors may settle any or all
causes of action as it deems appropriate, without the need to
obtain approval or any other or further relief from the Bankruptcy
Court, if the amount claimed by the Reorganized Debtors against a
defendant is less than $100,000.  The payments to be made to
holders of allowed claims will be made by the disbursing agent in
accordance with the Plan.

No. 08-26591).  Paul J. Cordaro, Esq., and Aurelius P. Robleto,

                            *********

Monday's edition of the TCR delivers a list of indicative prices
for bond issues that reportedly trade well below par.  Prices are
obtained by TCR editors from a variety of outside sources during
the prior week we think are reliable.  Those sources may not,
however, be complete or accurate.  The Monday Bond Pricing table
is compiled on the Friday prior to publication.  Prices reported
are not intended to reflect actual trades.  Prices for actual
trades are probably different.  Our objective is to share
information, not make markets in publicly traded securities.
Nothing in the TCR constitutes an offer or solicitation to buy or
sell any security of any kind.  It is likely that some entity
affiliated with a TCR editor holds some position in the issuers'
public debt and equity securities about which we report.

Each Tuesday edition of the TCR contains a list of companies with
insolvent balance sheets whose shares trade higher than $3 per
share in public markets.  At first glance, this list may look like
the definitive compilation of stocks that are ideal to sell short.
Don't be fooled.  Assets, for example, reported at historical cost
net of depreciation may understate the true value of a firm's
assets.  A company may establish reserves on its balance sheet for
liabilities that may never materialize.  The prices at which
equity securities trade in public market are determined by more
than a balance sheet solvency test.

A list of Meetings, Conferences and Seminars appears in each
Wednesday's edition of the TCR. Submissions about insolvency-
related conferences are encouraged.  Send announcements to
conferences@bankrupt.com/

On Thursdays, the TCR delivers a list of recently filed
Chapter 11 cases involving less than $1,000,000 in assets and
liabilities delivered to nation's bankruptcy courts.  The list
includes links to freely downloadable images of these small-dollar
petitions in Acrobat PDF format.

Each Friday's edition of the TCR includes a review about a book of
interest to troubled company professionals.  All titles are
available at your local bookstore or through Amazon.com.  Go to
http://www.bankrupt.com/books/to order any title today.

Monthly Operating Reports are summarized in every Saturday edition
of the TCR.

The Sunday TCR delivers securitization rating news from the week
then-ending.

of Delaware, contact Ken Troubh at Nationwide Research &
Consulting at 207/791-2852.
