ADMIRAL BAY: Petitions for Foreclosure Action Filed by Lenders
--------------------------------------------------------------
Admiral Bay Resources Inc. disclosed that the Company's US
subsidiary, Admiral Bay (USA) Inc., is in default under its credit
agreement with its senior lenders, GasRock Capital, LLC and
Midtown Acquisitions, LP.  The obligations of Admiral Bay USA
under the credit agreement are secured, as a first priority, by
mortgages over certain of Admiral Bay USA's oil and gas properties
and other related assets.  The senior lenders have filed and
served a Petition for Foreclosure on certain assets of Admiral Bay
USA in the District Court of Greenwood County, Kansas.  According
to the Petition, Admiral Bay USA is indebted to the lenders in the
principal amount of $42,501,705.70, plus interest at the default
rate from and after March 31, 2010.

The action by Admiral Bay's lenders, outlined as a possible
outcome of ongoing discussions in Company's March 25, 2010 press
release, comes after the Company and its lenders failed to agree
on terms under which Admiral Bay would have been purchased by a
third party.  While Admiral Bay and the third party had agreed in
concept to a combination of the companies, Admiral Bay's lenders
rejected the terms of the transaction as total consideration was
less than the outstanding principal balance of the Company's loan
obligation.

Admiral Bay continues to work with its lenders to seek a
consensual resolution to the foreclosure petition, which would
include the lenders agreeing to provide funds for a partial
payment of trade creditors in exchange for such creditors agreeing
to settlement terms and a release of the Company from further
liability and a framework under which Admiral Bay would continue
as a going concern by exchanging encumbered assets of Admiral Bay
USA for full satisfaction of the outstanding secured obligations
owed to the lenders under the credit agreement.

Should these conditions not be met, Admiral Bay would likely seek
protection under the provisions of federal bankruptcy statutes,
which the Company believes would likely result in negligible
recovery for unsecured creditors.

                  About Admiral Bay Resources

Admiral Bay Resources Inc. is an emerging unconventional gas
production company focused on the development of projects in the
Cherokee Basin in southeast Kansas and the Appalachian Basin in
Pennsylvania.  Admiral Bay is listed on the TSX Venture Exchange
under the symbol ADB.


ALTAMIS B.V.: Senior Lenders Vote to Support Prepackaged Plan
-------------------------------------------------------------
Almatis disclosed that at the end of the period for the
solicitation of votes, it has been informed by the balloting and
claims agent, Epiq Bankruptcy Solutions, LLC that 77.4% of voting
holders of its senior first lien debt by amount and 58.1% by
number have voted to accept its prepackaged Plan of
Reorganization.  The Plan has therefore received in excess of the
level of support required for acceptance of the Plan by Senior
Lenders; accepting Senior Lenders included the members of the
coordination committee of the Senior Lenders and funds managed by
Oaktree Capital Management, L.P. A combined hearing to approve the
disclosure statement and confirm the Plan has been set for July
19, 2010.

                         About Chapter 11

Chapter 11 provides a recognized and practical legal framework to
reorganize over-indebted businesses subject to supervision by the
US Bankruptcy Court.  The effect of a Chapter 11 filing is to
provide a Company with protection from its creditors while it
develops and implements a plan to reorganize its debt and, if
necessary, its operations.  Chapter 11 allows the Company to
continue to operate and maintain its business, under the control
of the Company's current management during the restructuring
process.  This includes, among other things, servicing its
customers, receiving supplies and paying wages and salaries to its
employees.  The process is therefore regularly used by
fundamentally sound operating companies to protect enterprise
value as they reorganize their debt in an orderly process. Almatis
has chosen Chapter 11 as the preferred legal tool for implementing
its balance sheet restructuring following extensive evaluation of
available alternatives.

                       About Almatis Group

Alamtis B.V., and its affiliates filed for Chapter 11 on April 30,
2010 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Lead Case No. 10-12308).  Almatis B.V.
estimated assets of US$500 million to US$1 billion and debts of
more than US$1 billion as of the bankruptcy filing.

Almatis, operationally headquartered in Frankfurt, Germany, is a
global leader in the development, manufacture and supply of
premium specialty alumina products.  With nearly 900 employees
worldwide, the company's products are used in a wide variety of
industries, including steel production, cement production, non-
ferrous metal production, plastics, paper, ceramics, carpet
manufacturing and electronic industries.  Almatis operates nine
production facilities worldwide and serves customers around the
world.  Until 2004, the business was known as the chemical
business of Alcoa.  Almatis is now owned by Dubai International
Capital LLC, the international investment arm of Dubai Holding.

Michael A. Rosenthal, Esq., at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP, serves
as counsel to the Debtors in the Chapter 11 cases.  & German
Counsel: Linklaters LLP is the special English and German counsel
and De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek N.V. is Dutch counsel.  Epiq
Bankruptcy Solutions, LLC, serves as claims and notice agent.


ALMATIS B.V.: Proposes to Pay Prepetition Wages of Employees
------------------------------------------------------------
Almatis B.V. and its debtor affiliates sought and obtained
interim approval from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of New York to pay the prepetition claims of their
employees.

The employee claims include unpaid compensation, reimbursable
expenses, payroll deductions and withholdings, and contributions
to employee benefit plans.  The Debtors did not specify the total
amount that should be paid off on account of the Employee Claims.

As of the Petition Date, the Debtors employ about 850 workers at
locations principally within North America, Europe, and Asia.

The Court's interim order also authorizes the Debtors to continue
their benefit plans and programs for their employees, including
health programs, flexible spending plan, life insurance and
disability benefits programs, savings and retirement plans, among
others.

The interim order, however, does not authorize Germany-based
Almatis GmbH and Netherlands-based Almatis B.V. to make any
payment of claims under their severance program or any payment
that would be subject to the so-called "European employee
severance cap."

The two Debtors are presently in mediation with some of their
former workers whose employment expired before their bankruptcy
filing.  They could be required to pay those employees up to
$1.05 million in severance payments arising before the Petition
Date.

The Debtors will ask the Court to approve payment under the
severance program or any payment subject to the European employee
severance cap at the May 17, 2010 final hearing.

In connection with the payment of the Employee Claims, the Court
directs the Debtors' banks and other financial institutions to
honor all checks and transfers regardless of whether they were
issued before or after the Petition Date, and to rely on the
Debtors' representations as to which checks and transfers are
authorized to be paid in accordance with the order.

ALMATIS B.V.: Wants More Time to File Rule 2015.3 Report
--------------------------------------------------------
Almatis B.V. and its debtor affiliates sought and obtained a
Court ruling for more time file, through and including June 29,
2010, their financial reports on entities in which they hold a
controlling or substantial interest.

Pursuant to Rule 2015.3 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy
Procedure, a debtor that filed a Chapter 11 case is required to
file periodic financial reports of the value, operations and
profitability of each entity in which it holds a substantial or
controlling interest.

Some of the Debtors hold a substantial or controlling interesting
in at least eight affiliates, which are located in various
countries including China, Japan, the United Kingdom, France,
Italy, and India.

"Many of these non-debtor affiliates have substantial assets and
operations, and assembling and compiling the financial reports of
the value, operations and profitability of these various non-
debtor affiliates throughout the world will require significant
time and effort by the Debtors' personnel," said Michael
Rosenthal, Esq., at Gibson Dunn & Crutcher LLP, in New York.

ALMATIS B.V.: Proposes Talbot as Cash Mgt. Adviser
--------------------------------------------------
Almatis B.V. and its affiliated debtors seek permission from the
Court to employ Talbot Hughes McKillop LLP as their cash
management adviser effective April 30, 2010.

The Debtors tapped the services of the firm to review and to
assist them in preparing cash forecasting and analysis reports,
presentations required in connection with their restructuring and
other reporting obligations.  Talbot will also be tasked to
assist the Debtors in responding to information requests from
creditors and their advisers, and assist the executive management
in implementing the steps to complete the restructuring.

Talbot Hughes will be paid for its services on an hourly basis
and will be reimbursed for its necessary expenses.  The hourly
rates of the firm's professionals are:

  Professionals                       Hourly Rates
  -------------                     ---------------
  Partners                          GBP625 - GBP795
  Directors                         GBP545
  Associates/Senior Associates      GBP350 - GBP495
  Support Staff                     GBP85

The Debtors, with Court approval, also propose to indemnify the
firm for any claim arising in connection with its employment.
Talbot Hughes, however, will not be indemnified for any claim
arising from its gross negligence, willful misconduct or breach
of duties.

"[Talbot's] professionals are well qualified to act on the
Debtors' behalf, given their extensive experience and expertise
in the restructuring process and their knowledge of the Debtors'
business," says Almatis Chief Executive Remco de Jong.

Talbot Hughes specializes in crisis stabilization and cash
management, financial restructuring, among other things.  The
firm has served as financial restructuring adviser to many other
bankrupt companies and is also familiar with the Debtors'
businesses and financial affairs in light of its previous
employment with the Debtors, according to Mr. de Jong.

In a declaration, Dean Merritt, Esq., a partner at Talbot, has
assured the Court that the firm does not hold or represent
interest adverse to the Debtors, and that it is a "disinterested
person " under Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code.

AMERICAN CAPITAL: S&P Cuts Counterparty Credit Rating to 'CC'
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its long-term
counterparty credit rating on American Capital Ltd., as well as
the issue ratings on its senior unsecured debt, to 'CC' from 'B-'.
At the same time, S&P placed both ratings on Credit Watch with
negative implications.

"The rating actions follow ACAS's announcement of a debt exchange
offer which, if completed, would constitute a distressed exchange
under S&P's published criteria.  ACAS is in technical default
presently, since it is in violation of financial covenants under
certain of its borrowing agreements including its unsecured
revolving credit facility, unsecured private debt, and unsecured
public debt," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Sebnem
Caglayan.  "The debt exchange would extend the maturity of certain
of the firm's debt obligations, including a $1.388 billion
revolving credit facility due in 2011, $548 million in public
notes due in 2012, and $339 million in private notes due before or
in 2011.  As part of the solicitation to investors, ACAS is
seeking consent to a prepackaged bankruptcy petition."

ACAS's exchange offer is part of a comprehensive financial
restructuring of substantially all of the company's outstanding
$2.350 billion unsecured indebtedness.  The restructuring
transaction involves cash principal payments of $960 million at
the consummation of the exchange offer -- set for June 1, 2010 --
and issuance of $1.390 billion in new secured notes with a
maturity of Dec. 31, 2013.  The significant unrealized portfolio
depreciation the firm has suffered during 2008 resulted in a
breach of some of its debt covenants, including the minimum
tangible net worth and asset coverage ratio, and has forced the
company to seek covenant relief through financial restructuring.

The CreditWatch Negative action reflects S&P's expectation that
S&P will lower the counterparty credit ratings and the affected
debt ratings on ACAS to default ('D') upon completion of the
exchange offer.  "If ACAS is unable to complete the out-of-court
restructuring and must resort to a prepackaged in-court
restructuring or other form of bankruptcy filing or restructuring,
S&P would downgrade the counterparty rating on ACAS to 'D' if
payment of debt service were interrupted.  In the longer term,
once the consent offer or other restructuring actions, if any, are
completed, S&P will reassess ACAS's credit profile," Ms. Caglayan
added.


AMERICAN HOMEPATIENT: Posts $3.8 Million Net Loss in Q1 2010
------------------------------------------------------------
American HomePatient, Inc., reported in a press release Wednesday,
that it incurred a net loss of $3.8 million for three months ended
March 31, 2010, compared with a net loss of $5.2 million for the
first quarter of 2009.

Revenues for the first quarter of 2010 were $67.0 million compared
to $66.2 million for the first quarter of 2009, representing an
increase of $845,000, or 1.2%.  The increase in revenue is
primarily attributable to growth in the Company's core respiratory
product lines of oxygen and sleep therapy, partially offset by
reductions in revenue associated with non-respiratory home medical
equipment and infusion therapy as a result of the Company's
continued reduction in emphasis of these less profitable product
lines.

Operating expenses declined in the first quarter of 2010 compared
to the first quarter of 2009 by roughly $608,000, or 1.7%.  The
decrease in operating expenses were primarily the result of
improved operating efficiencies.

The Company's balance sheet at March 31, 2010, showed
$242.7 million in assets and $277.4 million of liabilities, for a
stockholders' deficit of $34.7 million.

KPMG LLP, in Nashville, Tenn., in its audit report on the
Company's financial statements for the year ended December 31,
2009, expressed substantial doubt about the Company's ability to
continue as a going concern.  The independent auditors noted that
the Company has a net capital deficiency and has a net working
capital deficiency resulting from $226.4 million of secured debt
that matured on August 1, 2009.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on April 30, 2010,
the Company has entered into an agreement with its senior debt
holders and its largest stockholder, an investment fund managed by
Highland Capital Management, to complete transactions that are
intended to result in a going-private transaction followed by a
restructuring of the Company's secured debt.  The restructuring
agreement contemplates that the Company will seek shareholder
approval to reincorporate in Nevada, and, if approved, the Nevada
entity will commence a tender offer to acquire all outstanding
shares of stock not held by Highland managed accounts for
$0.67 per share.  If these transactions are completed, the stock
of American HomePatient would cease to be publicly traded.

"If the Company is unable to restructure the Secured Debt pursuant
to the Restructuring Support Agreement, the Company must refinance
the debt, extend the maturity, restructure or make other
arrangements, some of which could have a material adverse effect
on the value of the Company's common stock.  Given the unfavorable
conditions in the current debt market, the Company believes that
third-party refinancing of the debt will not be possible at this
time, which raises substantial doubt about the Company's ability
to continue as a going concern."

AMERICAN HOSPITALITY: Files for Chapter 11 in Buffalo, NY
---------------------------------------------------------
American Hospitality Group LLC filed a Chapter 11 petition on
May 6 in Buffalo, New York (Bankr. W.D.N.Y. Case No. 10-11887).
The Chapter 11 petition says that assets and debt both exceed
$10 million.  American Hospitality is the owner of the Grand
Island Holiday Inn in Grand Island, New York.  American
Hospitality purchased the hotel in 2004 for $3.2 million.

According to Bloomberg News, the secured lender, Royal Bank of
Canada, filed a motion asking the bankruptcy judge to allow the
state court receiver to remain in possession of the property.  The
bank's motion says that the principal amount of the mortgage is
more than $7 million.

Bloomberg recounts that in March, the bank began foreclosure and
obtained an order from a state court judge allowing a receiver to
take control of the hotel's operations pending completion of
foreclosure.  When the Chapter 11 petition was filed, the bankrupt
company exercised its rights under bankruptcy law to demand that
the receiver turn back possession and management of the property.
The Toronto-based bank said it advanced $400,000 after the
receiver was put in place to cover payroll.


B-G&G INVESTORS: Files for Chapter 11 in New Orleans
----------------------------------------------------
B-G&G Investors VII LLC filed for Chapter 11 on May 6, 2010
(Bankr. E.D. La. Case No. 10-11593).

B-G&G Investors owns the 336-unit Oakmont Apartments on Westbend
Parkway in New Orleans.  The property is in the Algiers section of
New Orleans.  The low- to middle-income project has a swimming
pool and tennis courts. Some of the units are leased to the
mentally disabled.

Bloomberg News reports that B-G&G filed for Chapter 11 to regain
possession of the property.  The property has a $17 million
mortgage made in 2007 by Inland Mortgage Capital Corp.  In
connection with foreclosure, the lender had the sheriff take
possession of the property immediately prior to the Chapter 11
filing.

B-G&G has asked the bankruptcy judge to give back possession and
the right to operate the project.


BLACK CROW: Has August 10 Extension for Plan Exclusivity
--------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle at Bloomberg News reports that Black Crow Media
Group LLC was granted an extension until Aug. 10 of the exclusive
right to propose a Chapter 11 plan.  According to the report,
General Electric Capital Corp., the secured lender owed $38.9
million, unsuccessfully opposed the exclusivity extension.

As reported by the TCR on April 14, the Bankruptcy Court rejected
a request by secured lender GE Capital to dismiss the Chapter 11
case of Black Crow.  The Court also denied a request by GECC to
modify the automatic stay so it could foreclose on the business.
Black Crow has already obtained approval of $1.5 million in
debtor-in-possession financing.  GECC had opposed.

                      About Black Crow Media

Daytona Beach, Florida-based Black Crow Media Group, LLC, owns and
operates 17 FM and 5 AM radio stations in Daytona Beach, Live Oak,

The Company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on
January 11, 2010 (Bankr. M.D. Fla. Case No. 10-00172).  The
Company's affiliates -- Black Crow Media, LLC, et al. -- also
filed separate Chapter 11 petitions.

Mariane L. Dorris, Esq., and R. Scott Shuker, Esq., at Latham
Shuker Eden & Beaudine LLP, assist the Company in its
restructuring effort.  The Company listed $10,000,001 to

BLUE RIDGE: Hotel Furniture Not Covered by Mechanics Lien
---------------------------------------------------------
WestLaw reports that personal property supplied to a hotel by a
design and purchasing services contractor, including chairs,
tables, and lamps, was not for "improvement" of the encumbered
hotel, within meaning of Virginia's mechanic's lien statute.
Thus, the contractor was precluded from claiming the personal
property in a mechanics' lien asserted against the hotel, as a
Chapter 11 debtor. The personal property did not change or become
a constituent part of the actual hotel building, but rather,
simply added value by its mere presence without any further
connection to or incorporation into the building.  Summit

LLC, --- F.Supp.2d ----, 2010 WL 1253175 (W.D. Va.) (Conrad, J.).

At the time of the filing, the Debtors disclosed $24,799,980 in
assets and $19,682,210 in liabilities.

CHEMTURA CORP: Pre-1985 Employees Win Stay of Stop Benefits Order
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Several Uniroyal Non-Union Retirees who began employment prior to
January 1, 1985 and retired after December 31, 1986, took an
appeal to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New
York of Judge Gerber's January 6, 2010 ruling that denied
reconsideration and resettlement of the an earlier Bankruptcy
Order dated November 30, 2010, which granted the Debtors the right
to modify or terminate post- employment welfare benefits enjoyed
by the Pre-1985 Employees.

In support of the Appeal, Susan Schneiderman, Esq., at Lemberg &
Associates, in New York, contended that the Bankruptcy Court's
January 2010 Order, which effectively denied the Pre-1985
Employees, except for John Prior, the right to present evidence
that their OPEB Welfare Benefits had vested and therefore, could
not be modified or terminated in the manner sought by the Debtor,
is erroneously based on the information (i) that John Prior alone
sought relief for the Pre-1985 Employees, and (ii) that the Pre-
1985 Employees  did not demonstrate excusable neglect with
respect to their failure to timely object to the OPEB Termination
Motion.

Accordingly, the Pre-1985 Employees asked the Bankruptcy Court to
stay the enforcement the Orders until the pending Appeal is
decided on.

                         Debtors Object

On behalf of the Debtors, Richard M. Cieri, Esq., at Kirkland &
Ellis LLP, in New York, asserted that the Judge Gerber's prior
decisions were correct and the Pre-1985 Employees have failed to
establish any facts that would justify their late objection by
rising to the level of excusable neglect under Rule 60(b)(1) of
the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.

Accordingly, the Debtors asked Judge Gerber to deny the Pre-1985
Employees' request for a stay.

Mr. Cieri pointed out that in their stay request, the Pre-1985
Employees failed to meet even one of the requirements of Rule
8005 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure for a stay
pending an appeal.  It is beyond dispute, he maintained, that the
Pre-1985 Employees have little more than a remote possibility of
succeeding on the merits of their dispute.

In casting their most recent request for relief, the Pre-1985
Employees paint an inaccurate picture of the procedural history
of the case, and fail to reference key portions of the record
that cast serious doubt on the likelihood of success of the
Appeal, Mr. Cieri pointed out.

In a separate filing, Ruth Cusack, the director of global
compensation and benefits for Chemtura Corporation, related that
it will cost the Debtors approximately $164,408 per month or
$1,972,900 per year to cover premium increases in the OPEB Plans.

The Pre-1985 Employees have stated that individuals must wait
until January of every year to enroll in a supplemental plan, Ms.
Cusack pointed out.  However, she told the Court, that may not be
the case for all individuals because the change in required
retiree premiums may constitute a loss of coverage, which would
allow the Pre-1985 Employees to enroll in a private individual
Medicare supplement arrangement prior to the January open
enrollment period.

The Debtors are willing to sign a letter for participants who
drop the Debtors' coverage to indicate that the prior health
group plan, which provided a substantial premium subsidy from the
Debtors, has been terminated, according to Ms. Cusack.  She added
that even if the change in required retiree premiums does not
constitute a loss of coverage, certain commercial Medicare
supplement plan providers have elected to cover certain
individuals under private Medicare supplemental arrangements
based on the changes to the Debtors' plans as of May 1, 2010, and
the Debtors have provided coverage letters to those new insurance
carriers.

                         *     *     *

In an oral ruling, Judge Gerber initially denied the Pre-1985
Employees' request for a stay.

In a subsequent written order, however, the Court granted
reargument as it acknowledged that it failed to consider certain
matters, which are arguably relevant to certain factors
applicable to consideration of the stay request.

On the matter of prejudice to the Debtors resulting from granting
the requested stay, Judge Gerber opined that he regarded as
material a $160,000 per month cost to the Debtors of continuing
the retiree benefits as is.  Judge Gerber, however, also said he
overlooked the fact that earlier, the Debtors had sought his
approval to pay up to $12,500,000 in incentive compensation for
their most senior executives -- of which about $3,000,000 would
have been payable with no increase in EBITDA.

Judger Gerber pointed out that the matter of the requested $12.5
million incentive compensation was not mentioned at the hearing
of the Pre-1985 Employees' request.  He further noted that it is
not clear whether the Uniroyal Retirees' counsel was aware of it,
but he says that he should have taken judicial notice of it.

"If the Debtors could afford to pay over $1,000,000 per month in
incentive compensation to their most senior executives, opposing
counsel could be heard to argue that the Debtors' claims of
prejudice by paying $160,000 per month in retiree health benefits
during the pendency of an appeal would ring hollow," Judge Gerber
opined.

CHEMTURA CORP: U.S. Govt. Seeks Redress of Environmental Harm
-------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Richard M. Berman of the U.S. District Court for the
Southern District of New York granted the request of the United
States Government, on behalf of federal and state environmental
agencies, for the mandatory withdrawal of reference from the
Bankruptcy Court of Chemtura Corp.'s adversary complaint that
seeks a determination that any environmental obligation on site
they do not presently own or operate would be discharged in
bankruptcy.

Judge Berman concluded that the Debtors' Adversary Complaint
should be withdrawn because it implicates "consideration and
analysis of the Comprehensive Environmental Response,
Compensation and Liability Act of 1980 and the intricacies of
non-bankruptcy law, as opposed to routine application of that
law."

In the Adversary Complaint, the Debtors filed a motion for
summary judgment.

In the District Court, the United States filed a cross motion for
summary judgment.

Preet Bharra, Esq., the United States Attorney for the Southern
District of New York, emphasized that the case is about the
ability of the U.S. governmental entities to ensure that the
Debtors remediate environmental harm for which they are
responsible pursuant to legal obligations set in binding court
and administrative orders, including federal consent decrees, or
self-executing statutory requirements.

The Debtors are legally obligated under existing orders and self
executing statutory obligations to perform work to remediate
pollution that continues to contaminate the environment and poses
risks to human health at certain sites, Mr. Bharra asserts.

The Sites include:

  -- the Stauffer Chemical Superfund Site in Axis, Alabama;

  -- the Laurel Park, Inc. Superfund Site in Naugatuck,
     Connecticut;

  -- the Tampa site, located in Tampa, Florida;

  -- the Irvine site, located in Irvine, California;

  -- the Bradford site, located in Bradford, Pennsylvania;

  -- the Court Street site located in Brooklyn, New York; and

  -- the Brainards site, located in Brainards, New Jersey.

The Debtors previously asked the District Court to discharge them
from their obligations to perform remediation work by asserting
that judicial and administrative orders requiring cleanup should
be treated as dischargeable "claims" within the meaning of
Section 101(5) of the Bankruptcy Code.

However, Mr. Bharra argues, the Debtors cannot demonstrate that
breach of their obligations to remediate environmental harm gives
rise to a right to payment, and therefore cannot transform
cleanup obligations into dischargeable "claims."

Although Debtors were involved in cleanup efforts at several
sites for years preceding the Petition Date, including years when
they did not allegedly own or operate those sites, the Debtors
have now halted or are seeking to halt their remediation efforts
and are seeking to discharge their obligations to continue with
the cleanup, Mr. Bharra notes.  He adds that the Debtors' failure
to comply with their remedial obligations has caused, and
continues to cause, significant threats to human health, public
safety, and the environment.

Mr. Bharra contends that the District Court should grant summary
judgment to the Governmental Entities on the Sites and hold that
the injunctive obligations at those Sites are non-dischargeable.

CONSECO INC: Repurchases $52.5-Mil. of 3.5% Convertible Debentures
------------------------------------------------------------------
Conseco, Inc. disclosed in a press release Wednesday that it has
repurchased $52.5 million of its 3.50% Convertible Debentures due
September 30, 2035 in a privately negotiated transaction.  In
connection with the repurchase, the Company completed a third
closing of $52.5 million aggregate principal amount of its 7.0%
Convertible Senior Debentures due 2016 as part of its previously
announced private offering of New Debentures.  The Company now has
roughly $293 million of the New Debentures outstanding, and less
than $100,000 of the Old Debentures remain outstanding.

The purchase price for the $52.5 million of Old Debentures was
equal to 100% of the principal amount plus accrued and unpaid
interest.  As a result of the repurchase, Conseco expects to
recognize a loss on the extinguishment of debt of roughly
$1 million, representing the write-off of unamortized discount and
issuance costs associated with the Old Debentures that were
repurchased.

The issuance of the $52.5 million of New Debentures was made
pursuant to the purchase agreement that Conseco entered into in
October 2009 relating to the private offering of up to
$293 million of the New Debentures.  Conseco received aggregate
net proceeds of roughly $49.4 million in the third closing of the
New Debentures (after taking into account the discounted offering
price less the initial purchaser's discounts and commissions, but
before expenses).

COMPUTER WORLD: Court Rejects Lender's Preference Defense
---------------------------------------------------------
WestLaw reports that a loan on which allegedly preferential
payments were made was not incurred in the ordinary course of a
Chapter 11 debtor's business, as required for the lender to
successfully assert an "ordinary course of business" defense to
preference claims.  The loan was not recorded as a loan on the
debtor's financial books, but as a payment that the debtor
received on an account receivable from fictitious customer.  A
debt cannot be incurred in the "ordinary course of business" if
the debtor engaged in fraudulent conduct in connection therewith.
Furthermore, payments that the debtor made on the loan, following
unusual collection activity by the lender, pursuant to two
separate modifications extending the maturity date, were not made
"in the ordinary course of business or financial affairs of the
debtor and transferee."  In re Computer World Solution, Inc., ---
B.R. ----, 2010 WL 1529356 (Bankr. N.D. Ill.) (Cox, J.).

Wells Fargo, Fifth Third Bank, and Yellow Freight, Inc., filed an
involuntary Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. N.D. Ill. Case No. 07-
21123) against Computer World Solution, Inc., on Nov. 9, 2007.  On
Nov. 16, 2007, the Debtor consented to the entry of an order for
relief.  The debtor was a distributor of imported flat screen
televisions and computer monitors.

On Mar. 28, 2008, the Debtor sued (Bankr. N.D. Ill. Adv. Pro. No.
08-00180) Apple Fund, L.P., and Astor Partners, LLC.  Count I of
the complaint alleges that the Debtor made preferential transfers
to the Defendants that are avoidable under 11 U.S.C. Sec. 547.
Count II of the complaint requests recovery of the transfers under
11 U.S.C. Sec. 550(a)(1).  Count III requests that the Defendants'
claims against the Debtor's bankruptcy estate be disallowed under
11 U.S.C. Sec. 502(d) because the Defendants have failed to repay
the amount of the transfers in question.  The complaint is based
on prepetition transfers totalling $1.5 million.

The Debtor is represented by Brian A. Audette, Esq., Daniel A.
Zazove, Esq., Jason Horwitz, Esq., and Regina L. Ori, Esq., at

judgment seeking denial of confirmation of the Amended Joint Plan.

denying confirmation of the Amended Joint Plan.  Moreover, the
Bankruptcy Court dismissed Congoleum's bankruptcy case.

On February 27, 2009, Congoleum and the Bondholders' Committee
appealed the Order of Dismissal and the ruling denying plan
confirmation to the U.S. District Court for the District of New
Jersey.  The District Court overturned the dismissal order, and
assumed jurisdiction of the bankruptcy proceedings.


CROWN MEDIA: Posts $2.3 Million Net Loss for First Quarter
----------------------------------------------------------
Crown Media Holdings, Inc,. filed on May 5, 2010, its quarterly
report on Form 10-Q, showing a net loss of $2.3 million on
$68.4 million of revenue for the three months ended March 31,
2010, compared with a net loss of $7.4 million on $71.0 million of
revenue for the same period of 2009.

The Company's balance sheet as of March 31, 2010, showed
$700.6 million of assets and $1.406 billion of total liabilities,
for a stockholders deficit of $705.1 million.

Cash provided by operating activities totaled $7.8 million for the
first quarter of 2010 compared to cash used in operating
activities of $385,000 for the same period last year.

KPMG LLP, in Denver, expressed substantial doubt about Crown Media
Holdings, Inc. and subsidiaries' ability to continue as a going
concern in its report on the Company's consolidated financial
statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2009.  The
independent auditors noted that of the Company's significant
short-term debt obligations.

On February 26, 2010, the Company entered into a Master
Recapitalization Agreement with Hallmark Cards, Incorporated, HC
Crown Corp. (Hallmark Cards' wholly owned subsidiary) and related
entities.  The Recapitalization transactions include, among other
things, $315.0 million principal amount of the HC Crown Debt being
restructured into new debt instruments, $185.0 million principal
amount of the HC Crown Debt being converted into convertible
preferred stock of the Company, Class B Common Stock being
converted into Class A Common Stock with Class A Common Stock
becoming the only authorized and outstanding common stock of the
Company, and the balance of the HC Crown Debt being converted into
shares of Class A Common Stock.  Upon execution of the Master
Recapitalization Agreement, the automatic termination of the
waiver under the existing Amended and Restated Waiver and Standby
Purchase Agreement with Hallmark Cards and HC Crown was extended
until August 31, 2010; the Waiver Agreement defers payment dates
on HC Crown Debt (excluding accounts payable).

"If for any reason the Recapitalization is not consummated, the
Company would be unable to meet its obligations which become due
on August 31, 2010, which provides substantial doubt about the
Company's ability to continue as a going concern."

CRS MANAGEMENT: Can Sell Colorado Property for $1,700,000
---------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. T.M. weaver of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western
District of Oklahoma authorized CRS Management Company LLC to sell
and convey its 4.11 acre track containing six buildings located in
Greely, Colorado, to Pinnacle Commercial Group, LLC, free and
clear of liens.

Pinnacle agreed to purchase the property on these terms:

   -- the gross sale price of $1,700,000
   -- a right of first refusal up to $2,500,000; and
   -- a stalking horse provision.

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma-based CRS Management Company LLC filed for
Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on February 5, 2010 (Bankr. W.D.
Okla. Case No. 10-10531).  The Company has assets of $16,115,184,
and total debts of $18,765,000.


DORAL FINANCIAL: S&P Affirms 'B-' Counterparty Credit Rating
------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it affirmed its
ratings on Doral Financial Corp., including the 'B-' counterparty
credit rating.

At the same time, S&P removed them from CreditWatch.  The ratings
had been placed on CreditWatch with developing implications on
April 19, 2010, following a capital raise of $600 million,
$420 million of which was contingent upon successfully acquiring a
failed banking institution.  The outlook is negative.

The affirmation and removal from CreditWatch primarily reflected
the company's ability to raise $180 million in common equity, but
also its unsuccessful efforts to participate in any Federal
Deposit Insurance Corp.-assisted deals in Puerto Rico.

"The equity raise will materially boost Doral's capital ratios,
providing it with more flexibility to deal with its ongoing asset
quality problems," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Kevin
Cole.  "However, it also means that Doral will have to return to
investors the $420 million of its recent $600 million capital
raise that was contingent upon acquiring a failed banking
institution in Puerto Rico."

S&P thinks the consolidation in the Puerto Rican banking system
has both positive and negative implications for Doral.  Since
institutions that already had a presence in Puerto Rico acquired
three failed Puerto Rican banks and certain brokered deposits were
excluded from the transactions, S&P expects that competition for
deposits may decrease slightly.  Nonetheless, the acquisitions by
other banks lower Doral's market share, putting it in a somewhat
weaker competitive position, and S&P believes the bank could have
more difficulty gaining assets and raising additional capital if
needed.

The negative outlook reflects S&P's belief that the rating is
likely to remain under pressure, largely reflecting the very weak
credit quality of the company's loan portfolio, its reduced
profitability, and weak economic conditions.


DOUBLE EXPOSURE: Court OKs Deal with All Points on Unpaid Bills
---------------------------------------------------------------
Jacqueline Palank at Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review reports
that Markus Klinko Photography Inc. and Double Exposure Studios
LLC have won bankruptcy court approval of a deal with creditor All
Points Capital Corp. that ends disputes over unpaid bills.

Ms. Palank notes that All Points had filed nearly $494,000 in
claims against Markus Klinko and Indrani, also known as Julia I.
Pal-Chaudhuri, in their personal bankruptcies as well as the
bankruptcies of their photography firms.  Dow Jones says the
settlement reduces All Points' claim to $122,000, none of which
Klinko and Indrani are actually paying themselves.  According to
the report, Mr. Klinko's mother Hedwig will cover $102,000, while
the remaining $20,000 will be covered by their fashion stylist pal
-- and reality show castmate -- GK Reid. Indrani had paid $22,000
toward All Points' claims last year; that money will now be made
available to her creditors and those of her photography studio,
Double Exposure.

According to Dow Jones, the photographers heralded the deal as
resolving "a substantial hurdle" to their reorganization.

                       About Double Exposure

Julia Pal-Chaudhuri is a New York-based celebrity photographer who
owns Double Exposure Studio.  She and Markus Klinko were formerly
a romantic couple and remain business partners.  The two have
photographed A-listers like Will Smith and Beyonce and shot work
for major clients including Nike and Vogue.

Julia Pal-Chaudhuri's Double Exposure Studio LLC filed for Chapter
11 bankruptcy protection in August 2009 before the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Southern District of New York, blaming it on
recession.  Double Exposure listed less than $50,000 in assets and
$100,000 to $500,000 in debts, which include unpaid taxes, Photo
District News reported.

2009 in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New
York.  Mr. Klinko, according to Photo District News, said that his
photography business has $1 million to $10 million in liabilities
and less than $50,000 in assets.


DUBAI HOLDING: Taps PwC on Potential Debt Restructuring
-------------------------------------------------------
Dow Jones Newswires' Ainsley Thomson reports that a person
familiar with the matter said Monday Dubai Holding Commercial
Operations Group has appointed PricewaterhouseCoopers as advisers
ahead of a potential debt restructuring.

Dow Jones notes Dubai Holding Commercial Operations is part of the
Dubai Holding conglomerate controlled by the emirate's ruler Sheik
Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.  Dubai Holding Commercial
Operations oversees Dubai Holding's property, business parks and
hospitality investments including hotels operator Jumeirah.

Dow Jones recalls that Dubai Holding Commercial Operations in
January ended its relationship with Standard & Poor's Corp. after
the rating agency said it had concerns about transparency.  Just
before the relationship was terminated, S&P had lowered the
company's credit rating to B with a negative outlook, from BB+,
saying its exposure to the severe downturn in Dubai's real-estate
market constrained its credit quality.

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 attempt 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.

FINLAY ENTERPRISES: Eisner Resigns as Company's External Auditors
-----------------------------------------------------------------
In a regulatory filing Thursday, Filay Enterprises Inc. disclosed
that Eisner LLP has resigned as the independent registered public
accounting firm of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiary
Finlay Fine Jewelry Corporation.  The last audit report that
Eisner issued in relation to the Debtors financial statements
related to the Company's consolidated financial statements for the
fiscal year ended January 31, 2009.   Eisner did not issue a
report in relation to the Company's fiscal year ended January 30,
2010, or any interim period after the fiscal year ended
January 31, 2009.

                     About Finlay Enterprises

Finlay Enterprises, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: FNLY) through its
wholly owned subsidiary, Finlay Fine Jewelry Corporation, is a
retailer of fine jewelry operating luxury stand-alone specialty
jewelry stores and licensed fine jewelry departments in department
stores throughout the United States and achieved sales of
$754.3 million in fiscal 2008.  The number of locations at the end
of the second quarter ended August 1, 2009, totaled 182, including
67 Bailey Banks & Biddle, 34 Carlyle and four Congress specialty
jewelry stores and 77 licensed departments with The Bon Ton.

The Company and seven affiliates filed for Chapter 11 on August 5,
2009 (Bankr. S. D. N.Y. Case No. 09-14873).  Weil, Gotshal &
Manges LLP, serves as bankruptcy counsel.  Alvarez & Marsal North
America, LLC, is engaged as restructuring advisor in the Chapter
11 case, and the firm's  David Coles is appointed as chief
restructuring officer.  Epiq Bankruptcy Solutions, LLC, serves as
claims and notice agent.  Judge James Peck presides over the case.

In its bankruptcy petition, Finlay Enterprises disclosed assets of
$331,824,000 against debts of $385,476,000 as of July 4, 2009.  As
of the petition date, Finlay owes $38 million outstanding under a
first lien credit agreement, $24.7 million under second lien
notes, $176.6 million outstanding under third lien notes (in
addition to $17.5 million to secured vendors), and $40.6 million
under remaining unsecured obligations under the senior notes.


FIREKEEPERS DEVELOPMENT: S&P Raises Issuer Credit Rating to 'B+'
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it raised its issuer
credit rating on Battle Creek, Mich.-based casino operator
FireKeepers Development Authority to 'B+' from 'B'.  The rating
outlook is stable.  At the same time, S&P raised the issue-level
rating on FDA's $340 million senior secured notes due 2015 to 'B+'
from 'B'.

"The upgrade reflects," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Michael Listner, "FDA's strong operating performance (which has
exceeded S&P's initial expectations) since the August 2009 opening
of its gaming facility, good credit measures for the existing
rating, and favorable EBITDA margins relative to competitors
across the industry."  These factors are somewhat offset by the
expectation for future competition in the market as well as
uncertainty surrounding FDA's plans for a potential expansion of
the existing facility and the level of distributions that will be
remitted to the tribe once the property has an established history
of operations.


HCA INC: S&P Puts 'B+' Corp. Rating on CreditWatch Positive
-----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it placed its 'B+'
corporate credit rating on hospital giant HCA Inc. and S&P's
ratings on its secured and unsecured debt on CreditWatch with
positive implications.

"The speculative-grade rating on HCA continues to reflect S&P's
view that the largest U.S. owner and operator of acute health care
facilities is particularly sensitive to reduced capacity
utilization and pricing," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
David Peknay, "by virtue of the significant debt leverage assumed
in its November 2006 leveraged buyout."

"While HCA has a large portfolio of 162 hospitals and 106
ambulatory surgery centers, S&P believes a concentration in
several of its markets highlights both its strength and
vulnerability," continued Mr. Peknay.  HCA enjoys relatively
strong negotiating positions with private insurance companies in
these markets, but also is susceptible to regional variations in
demand, particularly in Florida and Texas.  S&P believes managed
care price increases, which have been in the 6.0%-6.5% range, will
remain in there in the near term.  Still, the ongoing economic
weakness within HCA's regions could magnify a slackening demand
for elective procedures should it occur.  Similarly, regional
concentrations could amplify the effects of a national uptrend in
the level of uncompensated care.

"S&P could most likely raise S&P's corporate credit ratings on HCA
to 'BB-' if the IPO is completed and S&P feel that the financial
risk profile improves to aggressive from highly leveraged," said
Mr. Peknay.  Alternatively, S&P could affirm the existing 'B+'
corporate credit ratings if S&P feels that the risks such as
reimbursement and a weak economy outweigh HCA's opportunities.


HEALTH NET: S&P Puts 'BB-' Rating on CreditWatch Positive
---------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it placed its 'BB-'
counterparty credit rating on Health Net Inc. on CreditWatch with
positive implications.

Health Net's subsidiary, Health Net Federal Services LLC,
currently has a contract with the U.S. Department of Defense for
the TRICARE North Region.  On July 15, 2009, Standard & Poor's
lowered its counterparty credit rating on Health Net to 'BB-' from
'BB' following the company's announcement that the contract had
not been renewed.  The loss of the contract would effectively
eliminate unregulated cash flows to the holding company and would
reduce financial flexibility.  The company challenged the
decision, and on May 5, 2010, the U.S. Department of Defense
notified Health Net that it intends to award the new TRICARE North
Region contract to Health Net Federal Services.

"Although the awarding of the new contract to Health Net Federal
Services ensures continuing unregulated cash flows to the holding
company, these cash flows will be lower under the new contract,"
said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Neal Freedman.  "S&P will
review the estimated impact of the new TRICARE contract on Health
Net's consolidated revenues, earnings, and unregulated cash flows
relative to the old contract."

The CreditWatch positive reflects S&P's view that the unregulated
cash flows under the new contract, although reduced, may remain
sufficiently material for us to raise the rating by one notch.


FLEETWOOD ENTERPRISES: "Safe Harbor" Protected DIP Lender
---------------------------------------------------------
WestLaw reports that the "safe harbor" provision in 11 U.S.C. Sec.
364 authorizing the trustee or debtor-in-possession to obtain
postpetition financing and provides that "reversal or modification
on appeal of an authorization under this section to obtain credit
or incur debt, or of a grant under this section of a priority or a
lien, [would] not affect the validity of any debt so incurred, or
any priority or lien so granted, to an entity that extended such
credit in good faith," is not limited in its application solely to
appeals.  It had to be construed to prevent the court from
modifying its own interim financing order, pursuant to which it
granted the sole lender willing to provide postpetition financing
to Chapter 11 debtors-in-possession a commitment fee payable on
superpriority basis, in order to disallow this fee after interim
DIP financing was extended.  The "safe harbor" provision would
offer little incentive to DIP lenders to lend, and would not
fulfill its intend purpose, if the court adopted the narrow
construction urged by a creditors' committee.  In re Fleetwood
Enterprises, Inc., --- B.R. ----, 2010 WL 1568428 (Bankr. C.D.
Cal.).

Based in Riverside, California, Fleetwood Enterprises, Inc., was
the second largest manufactured housing maker in the U.S. and the
largest manufacturer of recreational vehicles over 30 feet in
length.

Fleetwood Enterprises listed assets of $560 million against debt
totaling $624 million in its bankruptcy petition.  Fleetwood
Enterprises, together with 19 of affiliates, filed for Chapter 11
protection on March 10, 2009 (Bankr. C.D. Calif. Lead Case No.
09-14254).  Craig Millet, Esq., and Solmaz Kraus, Esq., at Gibson,
Dunn & Crutcher LLP, represent the Debtors in their restructuring
efforts.  FTI Consulting Inc. is the financial advisor to the
Debtors.  The Debtors tapped Greenhill & Co. LLC as its investment
banker.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Apr. 26, 2010,
Fleetwood Enterprises has filed a Second Amended Joint Plan of
Liquidation and Disclosure Statement, and a confirmation hearing
is scheduled for June 9, 2010.  That plan contemplates that
unsecured creditors will recover 10% to 17% of their claims.


FOOD MANAGEMENT: Motion for Reargument Tied Dist. Ct.'s Hands
-------------------------------------------------------------
WestLaw reports that a claimant's motion for reargument, filed
before the claimant's notice of appeal from a bankruptcy court
order sustaining in part the Chapter 11 trustee's objections to
the claimant's proofs of claim, rendered the bankruptcy court's
decision non-final.  Therefore, the district court lacked
jurisdiction over the claimant's appeal.  In re Food Management
Group, LLC, --- B.R. ----, 2009 WL 6361410 (S.D.N.Y.) (Karas,
J.)/.

Headquartered in Eastchester, New York, Food Management Group,
LLC, managing 24 Dunkin Donuts franchises throughout
Westchester and Bronx Counties, and New York City, along with
four debtor-affiliates, sought chapter 11 protection (Bankr.
S.D.N.Y. Case No. 04-22880) on June 1, 2004, represented by
Jonathan S. Pasternak, Esq., and Joseph Corneau, Esq., at
Rattet, Pasternak & Gordon Oliver, LLP.  When the Debtors
filed for protection from their creditors, they estimated
between $1 million to $10 million in debts and assets.
Janice B. Grubin, Esq., serves as the Trustee in the
Debtors' cases, and is represented by Warren T. Pratt, Esq.,
at Drinker, Biddle & Reath, LLP, in Manhattan.

debt first.  Unless their collateral is sold, secured claims will
be capitalized and paid in full, with interest, in periodic

convenience claims will be paid 100% of the prepetition claims.

GENERAL GROWTH: Obtains Court Nod of Brookfield-Led Auction
-----------------------------------------------------------
General Growth Properties, Inc., confirmed that the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court has approved bidding procedures and the issuance
of warrants to serve as compensation for the financial commitments
to be provided pursuant to the revised $6.55 billion equity
investment and $2 billion capital backstop offer from affiliates
of Brookfield Asset Management, Pershing Square Capital Management
and Fairholme Funds.  The Company will continue to consider
competitive proposals and expects to select its plan for emergence
from bankruptcy in early July.

"After careful consideration, the Board of Directors agreed that
the revised proposal from this investment group represents the
best initial sponsor proposal to foster a process that maximizes
the enterprise value of GGP," said Adam Metz, Chief Executive
Officer of GGP.  "This proposal serves as an insurance policy for
GGP by providing the Company with the capital it requires to
emerge from bankruptcy, while at the same time allowing GGP to
continue soliciting higher and better financing and strategic
offers pursuant to the bid procedures approved by the Bankruptcy
Court."

The Official Committee of General Growth's Equity Committee
supports the revised Brookfield-led proposal and the relief
requested in the motion.

Principal Changes

The principal changes from the recently revised proposal submitted
by the Brookfield-led investors include:

   -- Pershing Square has agreed to eliminate its interim warrants
      entirely.  The remaining warrants to be granted to
      Brookfield and Fairholme as part of the transaction will
      vest over time as previously announced; and

   -- Upon emergence and subsequent to the spin-off of General
      Growth Opportunities at a contemplated value of $5.00 per
      GGO share, the strike price of the permanent warrants has
      been increased to $10.75 per share for Brookfield and
      remains at $10.50 per share for Pershing Square and
      Fairholme, an increase from the previous $10.00 per share.

"We are pleased that the Court has approved the bidding procedures
and warrants associated with the enhanced investment proposal from
Brookfield, Pershing Square and Fairholme, which we expect will
lead to a process that maximizes value for our stakeholders," said
Thomas H. Nolan, Jr., President and Chief Operating Officer of
GGP.  "As majority investors in GGP, Brookfield, Fairholme and
Pershing's interests would be wholly aligned with the Company to
maximize shareholder value.  We expect those three parties to
actively work to increase enterprise value, as evidenced by the
exciting strategic relationship agreement in the new Brookfield-
led proposal that will provide General Growth with valuable
corporate opportunities.  This proposal provides the best
opportunity to maximize current and future stockholder value
while, at the same time, protecting the Company and its creditors
on the downside."

UBS Investment Bank and Miller Buckfire & Co., LLC served as
financial advisors to General Growth Properties, and Weil, Gotshal

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on March 29, 2010,
UHY LLP of Atlanta, Georgia, expressed substantial doubt about
Guided Therapeutics Inc.'s ability to continue as a going concern
in its audit report on the Company's 2009 annual report.  UHY

HCA INC: Moody's Reviews 'B2' Corporate Family Rating
-----------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service placed the ratings of HCA, Inc.,
including the B2 Corporate Family and Probability of Default
Ratings, under review for possible upgrade.  This rating action
follows the announcement that the company has filed a Form S-1 in
contemplation of an initial public offering.

Moody's expects that proceeds to the company from the equity
offering will be used to reduce the company's significant debt
load.  Moody's review will focus on the extent of the expected
reduction in leverage, further mitigation of refinancing risk and
recent improvements in operating results, including stronger than
expected free cash flow and EBITDA growth.  Moody's believe that
the upgrade of the Corporate Family Rating would likely be limited
to one notch, however, changes to ratings at the instrument level
may be less predictable.  Changes in instrument ratings will
depend on the application of Moody's Loss Given Default
Methodology to the resulting capital structure.  Therefore,
Moody's review will also consider the size of the offering, the
amount of proceeds used for debt repayment and the class or
classes of debt reduced.  Moody's notes that the company is not
required to apply IPO proceeds to the outstanding term loans and
the company's 2014 second lien notes are callable beginning
November 15, 2010.

Ratings placed under review for possible upgrade:

  -- $2,000 million ABL Revolver due 2012, Ba2 (LGD2, 12%)

  -- $2,000 million Revolving Credit Facility due 2012, Ba3 (LGD3,
     32%)

  -- Term Loan A due 2012, Ba3 (LGD3, 32%)

  -- Term Loan B due 2013, to Ba3 (LGD3, 32%)

  -- Euro Term Loan due 2013, Ba3 (LGD2, 23%)

  -- 8.5% first lien secured notes due 2019, Ba3 (LGD3, 32%)

  -- 7.875% first lien secured notes due 2020, Ba3 (LGD3, 32%)

  -- 7.25% first lien secured notes due 2020, Ba3 (LGD3, 32%)

  -- 9.125% second lien notes due 2014, B2 (LGD4, 57%)

  -- 9.25% second lien notes due 2016, B2 (LGD4, 57%)

  -- 9.625% second Lien PIK Notes due 2016, B2 (LGD4, 57%)

  -- 9.875% second lien notes due 2017, B2 (LGD4, 57%)

  -- Senior unsecured notes (various), Caa1 (LGD6, 90%)

  -- Corporate Family Rating, B2

  -- Probability of Default Rating, B2

Moody's last rating action was on March 2, 2010, when Moody's
assigned a Ba3 (LGD3, 32%) rating to HCA's first lien senior
secured notes due 2020 and affirmed the existing ratings of the
company.

Headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, HCA is the nation's largest
acute care hospital company with 162 hospitals and 106
freestanding surgery centers (including eight hospitals and eight
freestanding surgery centers that are accounted for using the
equity method) as of March 31, 2010.  For the twelve months ended
March 31, 2010, the company recognized revenue in excess of

LIGHTPATH TECHNOLOGIES: Earns $12,052 in Q3 Ended March 31
----------------------------------------------------------
Lightpath Technologies, Inc. filed on May 6, 2010, its quarterly
report on Form 10-Q, showing net income of $12,052 on $2,660,415
of revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2010, compared
with a net loss of $756,175 on $1,656,889 of revenue for the same
period of 2009.

The increase in revenue from the third quarter of the prior fiscal
year was primarily attributable to higher sales volumes of
precision molded optics, isolators and Gradium offset by lower
collimator revenues.

Gross margin percentage in the third quarter of fiscal 2010
compared to third quarter of fiscal 2009 increased to 47% from
25%.

The Company's balance sheet as of March 31, 2010, showed
$6,898,380 in assets, $3,991,310 of liabilities, and $2,907,070 of
stockholders' equity.

The Company reported an operating loss of $119,736 for the nine
months ended March 31, 2010, as well as recurring operating losses
during fiscal years 2009 and 2008 of $2,508,090 and $5,459,497,
respectively.  Cash used in operations for the nine months ended
March 31, 2010, was $511,973 and cash used in operations during
fiscal years 2009 and 2008 were $1,467,953 and $3,455,964,
respectively.  The Company believes these conditions raise
substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going
concern.

GENERAL GROWTH: Obtains Court Nod of Brookfield-Led Auction
-----------------------------------------------------------
General Growth Properties, Inc., confirmed that the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court has approved bidding procedures and the issuance
of warrants to serve as compensation for the financial commitments
to be provided pursuant to the revised $6.55 billion equity
investment and $2 billion capital backstop offer from affiliates
of Brookfield Asset Management, Pershing Square Capital Management
and Fairholme Funds.  The Company will continue to consider
competitive proposals and expects to select its plan for emergence
from bankruptcy in early July.

"After careful consideration, the Board of Directors agreed that
the revised proposal from this investment group represents the
best initial sponsor proposal to foster a process that maximizes
the enterprise value of GGP," said Adam Metz, Chief Executive
Officer of GGP.  "This proposal serves as an insurance policy for
GGP by providing the Company with the capital it requires to
emerge from bankruptcy, while at the same time allowing GGP to
continue soliciting higher and better financing and strategic
offers pursuant to the bid procedures approved by the Bankruptcy
Court."

The Official Committee of General Growth's Equity Committee
supports the revised Brookfield-led proposal and the relief
requested in the motion.

Principal Changes

The principal changes from the recently revised proposal submitted
by the Brookfield-led investors include:

   -- Pershing Square has agreed to eliminate its interim warrants
      entirely.  The remaining warrants to be granted to
      Brookfield and Fairholme as part of the transaction will
      vest over time as previously announced; and

   -- Upon emergence and subsequent to the spin-off of General
      Growth Opportunities at a contemplated value of $5.00 per
      GGO share, the strike price of the permanent warrants has
      been increased to $10.75 per share for Brookfield and
      remains at $10.50 per share for Pershing Square and
      Fairholme, an increase from the previous $10.00 per share.

"We are pleased that the Court has approved the bidding procedures
and warrants associated with the enhanced investment proposal from
Brookfield, Pershing Square and Fairholme, which we expect will
lead to a process that maximizes value for our stakeholders," said
Thomas H. Nolan, Jr., President and Chief Operating Officer of
GGP.  "As majority investors in GGP, Brookfield, Fairholme and
Pershing's interests would be wholly aligned with the Company to
maximize shareholder value.  We expect those three parties to
actively work to increase enterprise value, as evidenced by the
exciting strategic relationship agreement in the new Brookfield-
led proposal that will provide General Growth with valuable
corporate opportunities.  This proposal provides the best
opportunity to maximize current and future stockholder value
while, at the same time, protecting the Company and its creditors
on the downside."

financial advisors to General Growth Properties, and Weil, Gotshal

MPG GATEWAY: U.S. Trustee Unable to Form Creditors Committee
------------------------------------------------------------
The Office of the U.S. Trustee for Region 21 notified the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida that until
further notice, it will not appoint an official committee of
unsecured creditors in the Chapter 11 case of MPG Gateway Ltd.

The U.S. Trustee said that there were insufficient indications of
willingness from the unsecured creditors to serve in the
committee.

MPG Gateway Ltd. filed for Chapter 11 protection in the U.S.

10-08075).  Safety Harbor, Florida-based MPG Gateway listed assets
and debts ranging from $10 million to $50,000.


NATHAN REUTER: Bitten By Business Partner's Fraud
-------------------------------------------------
WestLaw reports that the fraudulent conduct of an individual
Chapter 11 debtor's business partner in connection with an
allegedly risk-free investment opportunity offered by their
company could be imputed to the debtor, the allegedly innocent
partner, for purpose of excepting the resulting debt from
discharge on a "false pretenses, false representation, or actual
fraud" theory.  There were numerous red flags which should have
alerted the debtor, a sophisticated businessman who had himself
lost $175,000 in another investment opportunity touted by partner,
to the possibility of the partner's fraud.  Nonetheless, the
debtor chose to ignore these warning signs and to tout the safety
and legitimacy of the investment opportunity to potential
investors without investigating whether there was a basis in fact
for his representations.  The court also found that the debtor's
reckless indifference supported fraud-based nondischargeability
claims against him directly, without imputing his partner's fraud.
In re Reuter, --- B.R. ----, 2010 WL 1543715 (Bankr. W.D. Mo.).

Nathan Paul Reuter sought Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. W.D. Mo.
Case No. 07-21128) on July 27, 2007; is represented by James F. B.

NEWARK GROUP: Soliciting Votes for Prepackaged Chapter 11 Plan
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Newark Group, Inc. has reached an agreement with its primary
creditor constituencies to significantly reduce debt and
restructure the Company's balance sheet and has begun a
solicitation of votes for its prepackaged chapter 11 plan of
reorganization.  A majority of the members of each impaired
creditor class has already committed to vote in favor of the
prepackaged plan.

The Company announced that it reached an agreement with a group of
note holders representing more than three quarters of its
outstanding 9.75% unsecured senior subordinated notes (the
"Notes") that would eliminate approximately $200 million of the
Company's unsecured debt upon the effective date of the
Prepackaged Plan.  This debt reduction would reduce annual cash
interest costs by approximately $13 million and provide the
Company with the financial flexibility to focus on growth and
profitability.  In exchange for canceling the Notes, the holders
of the Notes will receive 96.5% of the equity of the Company upon
the effective date of the Prepackaged Plan.  Agreement was reached
with the Company's lead revolving loan lender to continue to
provide financing to the Company under a new $50 million debtor in
possession revolving loan facility and a $70 million exit
revolver.  The Company has also arranged for a new, larger $110
million term loan facility with a group led by ORIX Finance. This
will be used to pay off the existing term loan, and pay down the
existing revolver balance.

"We are pleased to have the support of our note holders and
lenders as we move forward to strengthen our balance sheet and
position the Company for profitability," said Robert Mullen,
President and Chief Executive Officer of The Newark Group.  "As we
navigate this process, we will continue to focus on customers,
servicing them better than anyone else and developing product
solutions to address their most difficult issues," continued
Mullen.

Votes on the Prepackaged Plan must be received by Kurtzman Carson
Consultants, LLC, the Company's voting agent, by June 1, 2010,
unless the deadline is extended.  The record date for voting was
set for May 4, 2010. Solicitation materials have been mailed to
all parties entitled to vote on the Prepackaged Plan.  Upon
receipt of sufficient votes from those entitled to vote, the
Company intends to commence a Chapter 11 proceeding and schedule a
hearing to confirm the Prepackaged Plan to take place within
forty-five (45) days thereafter.  None of the Company's non-US
subsidiaries or affiliates will be included in the filing.

Throughout the solicitation process, trade creditors, suppliers
and employees will continue to receive amounts owed to them in the
ordinary course of business. In addition, the Prepackaged Plan
provides, among other things, that subject to approval of the
Bankruptcy Court, the claims of trade creditors, suppliers and
employees will be paid in full in the ordinary course of business.
During the Chapter 11 case, the Company will continue normal
operations under current management and does not anticipate any
changes to its overall business or its ability to produce quality
products.

REGAL CINEMAS: Fitch Assigns 'B+/RR4' Rating on $250 Mil. Notes
---------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has assigned a 'B+/RR4' rating to Regal Cinemas
Corporation proposed $250 million note offering.  The new notes
will be issued out of the existing senior unsecured indenture
dated July 15, 2009.  Proceeds of the notes, together with
proceeds from the new senior secured credit facility (which is
expected to close concurrently with the note offering), are
expected to be used to repay the current senior secured credit
facility, repurchase the $52 million balance on Regal Cinemas
subordinated notes, pays fees related to the financing
transactions and for general corporate purposes, which may include
the repayment or repurchase of other indebtedness.  Regal Cinemas
is an indirectly wholly owned subsidiary of Regal Entertainment
Group (Regal).  These are rating actions taken by Fitch:

Regal

  -- Issuer Default Rating affirmed at 'B+';

  -- Senior unsecured convertible notes upgraded to 'B-/RR6' from
     'CCC/RR6'.

Regal Cinemas

  -- IDR affirmed at 'B+';
  -- Senior secured credit facility affirmed at 'BB+/RR1';
  -- Senior unsecured notes affirmed at 'B+/RR4';
  -- Senior subordinated notes rating of 'B-/RR6' withdrawn;

The Rating Outlook is Stable.

The new senior secured credit facility will move the maturity of
the term loan from October 2013 to November 2016, extending the
majority of Regal's debt balance.  The term loan will continue to
amortize quarterly, in an aggregate annual amount equal to 1% of
the original term loan ($1.25 billion).  The revolver component of
the facility is expected to mature in May 2015, extending the
current maturity of October 2011, and is expected to have
commitments totaling $85 million.  In addition, the new credit
facility provides, on an uncommitted basis, for the potential of
$200 million in additional term loan borrowings.

Fitch views the extension of the maturities as a positive to the
credit, providing an improvement in the company's near-term
maturity schedule.  Fitch expects the security package to be
consistent with the current security package in place.  The new
credit facility will also be guaranteed by the same subsidiaries
that guarantee the current credit facility and the senior
unsecured notes.

Fitch expects up to $185 million in incremental cash may be left
on the balance sheet after the subordinated notes are repurchased
and the old credit facility is repaid.  Fitch notes that this
additional cash may be used to finance a portion of Regal's
$200 million in convertible notes due March 2011, fund future
acquisitions and/or shareholder-friendly actions.

As of March 31, 2010, liquidity (not reflecting the announced
transactions) was made up of $321.6 million in cash and
$92.3 million in credit facility availability, under the company's
$95 million credit facility.  Last 12-month ended March 31, 2010
free cash flow was approximately $187 million.  Fitch expects FCF
for 2010 to be in the range of $140 million?$165 million.  Other
than the convertible notes due in March 2011, the company's next
meaningful maturity would be November 2016, when the proposed term
loans mature.  Regal has no pension obligations.

Total debt as of March 31, 2010, was approximately $2 billion, and
unadjusted gross leverage was 3.8 times.  Fitch expects gross
leverage to remain above 3x and does not expect significant debt
reduction in the near term.

Regal's Recovery Ratings reflect Fitch's expectation that the
enterprise value of the company and, hence, recovery rates for its
creditors, will be maximized in a restructuring scenario (as a
going concern) rather than a liquidation.  Fitch estimates an
adjusted, distressed enterprise valuation of $1.8 billion, using a
5x multiple and including an estimate for Regal's 25% stake in
National CineMedia, LLC, of approximately $175 million.  Based on
this enterprise valuation, overall recovery for total debt is
approximately 88% (before any administrative claims).

The 'RR1' recovery rating for the company's credit facilities
reflects Fitch's belief that 91%?100% expected recovery is
reasonable.  While Fitch does not assign Recovery Ratings for the
company's operating lease obligations, it is assumed the company
rejects only 30% of its remaining $3.9 billion in operating lease
commitments due to their significance to the operations in a
going-concern scenario and is liable for 15% of those rejected
values (at a net present value).  The 'RR4' recovery ratings for
Regal Cinemas' senior unsecured notes (equal in ranking to the
rejected operating leases) reflect an expectation that recovery
will be low in the 31%-50% range.

The upgraded ratings on Regal's convertible notes ('B-/RR6'; two
notches from Regal's IDR) reflect the notes new position in the
capital structure after the repayment of Regal Cinemas
subordinated notes and Fitch's expectation for zero recovery.
Assuming all else is equal, in the event that Regal Cinemas
reissues subordinated debt or Regal issues debt senior to the
convertible notes, the ratings on the convertible notes would
likely be downgraded one notch (for a total of three notches from
Regals' IDR), reflecting its subordinated position in the capital
structure.

Catholic Medical Centers and its units seek the Court's authority
to employ Garfunkel Wild, P.C., as their special healthcare,
regulatory, corporate, real estate, litigation and finance counsel

arrangements that they have entered into and understands the
current status of their standing with each of the agencies
exercising jurisdiction over their affairs.

Robert A. Wild, Esq., Judy Eisen, Esq., and Burton S. Weston,
Esq., members of Garfunkel Wild, who have had primary
responsibility for the Debtors' prepetition representation, will

litigation and finance counsel, the Debtors seek Garfunkel Wild
to, inter alia:

  (d) provide continuing legal advice in connection with health
      care, regulatory, corporate, finance and other non-
      bankruptcy related issues;

  (e) assist in providing non-bankruptcy, real estate, corporate
      and commercial assistance as may relate to the sale, lease
      or other disposition of assets of the estates; and

  (f) perform other non-bankruptcy related legal services and
      assistance desirable and necessary to the efficient and
      economic administration of the Debtors' estates.

It is anticipated that Garfunkel Wild's compensation, fees and
expenses will be based on its normal hourly rates in effect for
the period in which services are rendered, discounted by 10%.

Garfunkel Wild's non-discounted hourly rates at present for
professionals who will work on this matter range from:

SPANSION INC: Emerges from Chapter 11 Reorganization
----------------------------------------------------
Spansion Inc. has emerged from Chapter 11 reorganization. During
the reorganization, Spansion focused its business on serving
embedded and targeted wireless applications, resulting in four
consecutive quarters of operating profit and $225 million in
generated cash.

"We are pleased to have emerged from Chapter 11 a stronger, more
focused company.  As a result, we are better able to serve our
customers," said John Kispert, president and CEO of Spansion, who
also pointed to a healthy balance sheet as the foundation for
long-term success.

Spansion entered Chapter 11 reorganization with over $1.5 billion
in debt.  Today, Spansion emerged a well capitalized company with
less than $480 million in debt and approximately $230 million in
cash, which is supplemented with an undrawn credit line of up to
$65 million.  Stockholder's equity was enhanced by a rights
offering of approximately $105 million which is reflected in its
cash position.

On March 1, 2009, Spansion filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy
protection.  The company submitted its first plan of
reorganization on October 26, 2009 and gained approval from the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court on its amended disclosure statement on
December 22, 2009. Spansion received confirmation from the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for its plan of reorganization on April 16, 2010
and emerged from Chapter 11 protection on May 10, 2010.  As a
result of Spansion's emergence, Spansion's old common stock has
been canceled and no longer trades.  Some pre-bankruptcy claims
and other administrative matters will remain pending until they
are resolved. However, effective as of today, Spansion is no
longer under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Delaware.

"Through the determination of the entire Spansion team, the
company has remained focused on serving our customers as we
restructured," said Kispert. "Now that the reorganization process
is behind us, we look forward to applying even greater energy to
ensure our customers' success in their chosen markets."

on April 16, 2010.  A group of holders of Convertible notes and
equity in Spansion presented an alternative plan, which would pay
senior noteholders in full and has funding commitment of in excess
of $425 million, but the plan was rejected.


ST. VINCENTS: Closing May Violate Federal and State WARN Acts
-------------------------------------------------------------
The closing of St. Vincent's Hospital on Saturday, May 1, 2010
that resulted in the layoff of 3,500 employees appears to have
violated the federal Worker and Adjustment and Retraining
Notification Act.  It also appears to have violated the New York
WARN Act. The statutes require that employers give sixty and
ninety days, respectively, advance notice of any closure or mass
layoff.  The penalty for failing to give such notice is wages and
benefits that the employee would have been entitled to during the
notice period.

"We have spoken with several employees and union representatives,"
said Charles A. Ercole, a partner with Klehr Harrison Harvey
Branzburg LLP.  "We are continuing our investigation and intend to
file a class action lawsuit or class proof of claim in the
bankruptcy court."

Mr. Ercole and his firm have successfully handled more than a
dozen WARN Act cases. For more information on this article or the
WARN Act, please do not hesitate to contact Mr. Ercole.

US CONCRETE: Wants 45-Day Extension for Schedules Filing
--------------------------------------------------------
U.S. Concrete, Inc., et al., have asked the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the District of Delaware to extend for an additional 45 days
the filing of statements of financial affairs, schedules of assets
and liabilities, schedules of current income and expenditures, and
statements of executory contracts and unexpired leases.

Because the Debtors hope to emerge from Chapter 11 within 90 days,
the Debtors believe it may be unnecessary to file the schedules
and statements in these Chapter 11 cases, and may seek further
extensions, as appropriate, pending confirmation of the Plan.

VISTEON CORP: Files Second Amended Plan of Reorganization
---------------------------------------------------------
BankruptcyData.com reports that Visteon Corp. filed with the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court a Second Amended Plan of Reorganization and
related Disclosure Statement.

The Plan consists of two mutually exclusive sub-plans:

   (1) A rights offering sub-plan under which certain unsecured
       bondholders would have the opportunity to receive 95
       percent of the equity in reorganized Visteon in exchange
       for $1.25 billion in cash raised through a backstopped
       equity rights offering.  The remaining 5 percent in equity
       would be distributed among unsecured bondholders.
       Unsecured bondholders unable to participate in the rights
       offering pursuant to securities laws would also be provided
       with a cash recovery under the plan in lieu of receiving
       rights to participate in the rights offering.  Secured
       lenders would be paid in full from proceeds from the
       capital raise and exit financing as outlined in the plan.

   (2) A claims conversion sub-plan, similar to the plan filed by
       Visteon on March 15, 2010, under which the term loan
       lenders would receive approximately 85 percent of the
       equity in reorganized Visteon and unsecured bondholders
       would receive approximately 15 percent of the equity.

Under both sub-plans the other general unsecured creditors would
receive a cash payout.  Under the Second Amended Plan, Visteon
would retain its U.S. defined benefit pension plans.  The second
amended plan still leaves bondholders and other general unsecured
creditors substantially impaired.  As such, the Second Amended
Plan does not provide for any recovery to holders of Visteon's
equity.  The fundamental tenet of this dual plan concept is that
if the bondholders deliver the $1.25 billion and exit financing,
the Company will move forward with the rights offering sub-plan.
If the bondholders are unable to raise this cash, the company will
'toggle' to the claims conversion sub-plan under guidelines of the
Second Amended Plan and related agreements.  Holders of more than
two-thirds of the aggregate face amount of the company's bonds
have executed plan support agreements in favor of the Second
Amended Plan.  While the steering committee of term lenders has
not yet indicated a willingness to support the Second Amended
Plan, the Company states that the term lenders would be paid in
full, in cash, including accrued pre-petition and post-petition
interest, and would thereby be unimpaired under the rights
offering sub-plan and would be receiving virtually identical
treatment under the claims conversion sub-plan to that which they
unanimously supported under the First Amended Plan.

YOUNG BROADCASTING: Unsec. Creditors' Reinstatement Plan Denied
---------------------------------------------------------------
Law firm Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP reported that it has
received a favorable ruling in the Young Broadcasting Inc.
bankruptcy confirmation fight on behalf of Wachovia Bank, N.A.,
acting as the agent for the senior secured lenders.  The ruling
denies a "reinstatement plan" proposed by the unsecured creditors
in the bankruptcy and confirms the plan of reorganization
supported by Milbank's client.  The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York refused to accept the unsecured
creditors' plan, signaling that reinstatement strategies in
bankruptcy cases will face substantial judicial scrutiny where the
plan proponents cannot demonstrate that their plan is the most
feasible and responsible course for the debtor.

"We were very pleased that the Court accepted our arguments that
the proposed reinstatement plan was not viable and did not contain
adequate legal protections," said Los Angeles-based Milbank
partner Gregory A. Bray.  "Clearly, the question of which
creditors should retain the most influence during restructuring
has become a critical issue in bankruptcy filings.  This ruling
sets a cautious tone for all reinstatement plans, which require
scrutiny and analysis to ensure they position the debtor for
success post-reorganization."  Reinstatement plans have become
popular among debtors seeking to maintain credit agreements with
favorable terms and below-market interest rates and junior
creditor classes seeking a greater recovery.

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Arthur J. Gonzalez found that it was
"undisputed" that the current value of the Debtors business was
less than the amount of Milbank's client's claim and that "any
evidence of the purported future valuation of the company in
November 2012 is purely speculative."

Confirmation of the lenders' plan followed repeated impeachment of
Young Broadcasting's management team and the valuation expert
proffered by the unsecured creditors.  Milbank's litigators
successfully cross-examined these witnesses at trial, undermining
the company's inflated business projections and the expert
testimony on feasibility proffered by the unsecured creditors'
expert.

"It was clear from the outset that the valuation estimates were
inflated," said Milbank senior litigation partner, Linda Dakin-
Grimm ( ldakin-grimm@milbank.com ).  "The Court agreed that the
assumed future sale of the company under the unsecured creditors'
plan was at a price that was not supported by any reasonable
analysis."  Ms. Dakin-Grimm tried the case along with partners
Daniel M. Perry ( dperry@milbank.com ) and Mark C. Scarsi (
mscarsi@milbank.com ).

* S&P 2010 Tally of Global Defaults Now at 32
---------------------------------------------
One Indonesian transportation company deferred interest payments
last week, raising the 2010 year-to-date tally of global corporate
defaults to 32, said an article published by Standard & Poor's,
titled "Global Corporate Default Update (April 30 - May 6,
2010) (Premium)."

By region, the current year-to-date default tallies are 22 in the
U.S., two in Europe, three in the emerging markets, and five in
the other developed region (Australia, Canada, Japan, and New
Zealand).

"So far this year, Chapter 11 filings and distressed exchanges
account for 10 defaults each, missed interest or principal
payments are responsible for seven, regulatory directives and
receiverships account for one each, and the remaining three
defaulted issuers are confidential," said Diane Vazza, head of
Standard & Poor's Global Fixed Income Research.

Of the global corporate defaulters in 2010, 38% of issues with
available recovery ratings had recovery ratings of '6' (indicating
our expectation for negligible recovery of 0%-10%), 12% of the
issues had recovery ratings of '5' (modest recovery prospects of
10%-30%), 12% had recovery ratings of '4' (average recovery
prospects of 30%-50%), and 19% had recovery ratings of '3'
(meaningful recovery prospects of 50%-70%).  And for the remaining
two rating categories, 15% of the issues had recovery ratings of
'2' (substantial recovery prospects of 70%-90%) and 4% of issues
had recovery ratings of '1' (very high recovery prospects of 90%-
100%).

"Our baseline projection for the U.S. corporate speculative-grade
default rate in the 12 months ending in March 2011 is 3.5%, with
alternative scenarios of 4.9% at the pessimistic end and 3.0% at
the optimistic," said Ms. Vazza.

S&P's baseline forecast for year-end 2010 was 5.0%, with
alternatives of 6.9% (pessimistic) and 4.3% (optimistic), compared
with a long-term (1981-2009) average of 4.5%.  Nevertheless, S&P
believes residual default risk beyond the one-year forecast
horizon could increase because of the significant overhang of
surviving leveraged corporate issuers.  "The substantial decline
in risk premiums for lower-rated borrowers and the return of what
we view as questionable practices and structures in some recent
deals -- such as raising bond funds to pay out shareholder
dividends or sponsors -- further raise flags that the optimism
might be overdone.  In the slim chance that the economy
experiences a double-dip recession, many of the surviving
leveraged issuers originated during 2003-2007 could face renewed
default risk unless they significantly reduce their debt burdens."


* Bank Failures This Year Now 68 As 4 Banks Shut May 7
------------------------------------------------------
Regulators closed four banks -- 1st Pacific Bank of California,
San Diego, CA; Access Bank, Champlin, MN, Towne Bank of Arizona,
Mesa, AZ; and The Bank of Bonifay, Bonifay, FL -- on May 7,
raising the total closings for this year to 68.

To protect depositors, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation
entered into a purchase and assumption agreement with various
banks for the assumption of deposits and takeover of operations of
the closed banks.

The closing of the four banks has cost the FDIC $214 million. The
failing banks were in Arizona, California, Minnesota and Florida.
Deposits at the failing banks were taken over by other
institutions.

In accordance with Federal law, allowed claims against failed
financial institutions will be paid, after administrative
expenses, in this order of priority:

     1. Depositors
     2. General Unsecured Creditors
     3. Subordinated Debt
     4. Stockholders

In 2009, there were 140 failed banks, compared with just 25 for
2008.

A complete list of banks that failed since 2000 is available at:

    http://www.fdic.gov/bank/individual/failed/banklist.html

                   702 Banks on Problem List

In its quarterly banking profile, the Federal Deposit Insurance
Corp. said that the number of institutions on its "Problem List"
rose to 702 at the end of 2009, from 552 at the end of the third
quarter and 252 at the end of 2008.

The FDIC, in its February 23 report, said that total assets of
"problem" institutions were $402.8 billion at yearend 2009,
compared with $345.9 billion at the end of September and $159.0
billion at the end of 2008.  Both the number and assets of
"problem" institutions are at the highest level since June 30,
1993.

The Deposit Insurance Fund (DIF) decreased by $12.6 billion during
the fourth quarter to a negative $20.9 billion (unaudited)
primarily because of $17.8 billion in additional provisions for
bank failures.  Also, unrealized losses on available-for-sale
securities combined with operating expenses reduced the fund by
$692 million.  Accrued assessment income added $3.1 billion to the
fund during the quarter, and interest earned, combined with
termination fees on loss share guarantees and surcharges from the
Temporary Liquidity Guarantee Program added $2.8 billion.  For the
year, the fund balance shrank by $38.1 billion, compared to a
$35.1 billion decrease in 2008.  The DIF's reserve ratio was
negative 0.39% on December 31, 2009, down from negative 0.16% on
September 30, 2009, and 0.36% a year ago.  The December 31, 2009,
reserve ratio is the lowest reserve ratio for a combined bank and
thrift insurance fund on record.

Forty-five insured institutions with combined assets of
$65.0 billion failed during the fourth quarter of 2009, at an
estimated cost of $10.2 billion.  For all of 2009, 140 FDIC-
insured institutions with assets of $169.7 billion failed, at an
estimated cost of $37.4 billion.  This was the largest number of
failures since 1990 when 168 institutions with combined assets of
$16.9 billion failed.

On November 12, 2009, the FDIC adopted a final rule amending the
assessment regulations to require insured depository institutions
to prepay their quarterly risk-based assessments for the fourth
quarter of 2009 and for all of 2010, 2011, and 2012 on December
30, 2009, along with each institution's risk-based assessment for
the third quarter of 2009.   The FDIC is asking banks to prepay
three years of premiums on Dec. 30 to raise $45 billion for the
fund.

"Problem" institutions are those institutions with financial,
operational, or managerial weaknesses that threaten their
continued financial viability.  They are rated by the FDIC or
Office of the Thrift Supervision as either a "4" or "5", based on
a scale of 1 to 5 in ascending order of supervisory concern.
The Problem List is not divulged to the public.  No advance notice
is given to the public when a financial institution is closed.

               Problem Institutions      Failed Institutions

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.
