Bankruptcy Law360 reports that U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Martin Glenn
has ordered Boulder Capital LLC to return $24.3 million in loan

March 27, 2009, the Chapter 11 trustee of 1031 Tax Group LLC filed

ignored signs a fraud was being conducted so it could continue
profiting from a lending relationship.

ABITIBIBOWATER INC: Proposes Deloitte as Consulting Svc. Providers
------------------------------------------------------------------
AbitibiBowater Inc. and its units seek the U.S. Bankruptcy Court's
authority to hire Deloitte Consulting LLP as their consulting
service providers nunc pro tunc to July 5, 2010, in connection
with their anticipated emergence from Chapter 11.

The Debtors have selected Deloitte Consulting in light of the
firm's vast experience in bankruptcy-related services and the
firm's familiarity with their operations and restructuring
strategy.

As consulting service providers, Deloitte Consulting is expected
to:

  (a) organize formation and staffing of planning process which
      will serve to increase the Debtors' effectiveness as they
      emerge from Chapter 11;

  (b) manage Program Management Office reporting and issue
      tracking;

  (c) identify issues and risks that may cause delays in Day 1
      readiness and inform the Debtors and other relevant
      stakeholders of risks that arise;

  (d) advise on development of blueprints for functional areas
      required to support the Reorganized Debtors;

  (e) advise on preparation for Day 1 including readiness
      testing and identifying interdependencies;

  (f) advise on preparation for the smooth functioning of key
      departments (Finance, Treasury, HR, Payroll, etc.) post-
      emergence;

  (g) advise on development and delivery of informative pre-Day
      1, Day 1 and post-Day 1 communications to employees,
      retirees, vendors, suppliers and other stakeholders;

  (h) advise work-stream owners on Plan optimization and
      contingency planning; and

  (i) provide other related services as may be requested in
      writing by the Debtors and agreed to by the firm.

The Debtors aver that they will take every effort to ensure that
the service Deloitte Consulting will provide will not duplicate or
overlap with services provided by other retained advisors or
Deloitte's affiliates.

The Firm intends to charge the Debtors for the contemplated
services based on these hourly rates:

       Partner, Principal or Director          $620
       Senior Manager                          $520
       Manager                                 $445
       Senior Consultant                       $330
       Staff Consultant/Business Analyst       $260

The Firm also intends to charge necessary expenses incurred in
connection with its retention.

Deloitte Consulting's engagement letter with the Debtors provides
that the Debtors will indemnify the firm under certain
circumstances.

Michael J. Puleo, a director at Deloitte Consulting, assures the
Court that his firm does not hold any interest adverse to the
Debtors with respect to matters for which the firm is to be
retained.

ABITIBIBOWATER INC: Proposes Settlement With USW, Other Unions
--------------------------------------------------------------
AbitibiBowater Inc. and its units ask the Court to approve a
stipulation with the United Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber,
Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service Workers
International Union; the International Brotherhood of Electrical
Workers; the International Association of Machinists; and the
United Association of Journeymen and Apprentices of the Plumbing
and Pipefitting Industry of the United States and Canada.

The Stipulation is essentially between the Debtors and their
unionized employees at their U.S. facilities, which implements a
master agreement between the parties.

Among other things, the Master Agreement modifies and amends
AbitibiBowater's existing master agreement and its various
collective agreements at its U.S. facilities in Tennessee, South
Carolina, Alabama, and Georgia.  The Master Agreement supersedes
and replaces any language in the prior master agreement or the
CBAs relating to the affected provisions.

The key terms of the Master Agreement include:

   * Wages.  The Master Agreement includes a 3% across the board
     wage reduction, subject to adjustment ranging from 0% to 2%
     annually and a performance-based incentive plan tied to the
     Company's annual EBITDA.  The new performance-based
     incentive plan replaces existing guaranteed wage increases.

  * Performance Incentive Plan.  Per employee, the performance-
     based pay-outs range from $500 annually for an EBITDA of
     $550 million to $2,000 annually for an EBITDA of
     $850 million.

   * Benefits.  The Master Agreement provides for, inter alia,
     holidays and holiday pay, medical and dental plans, short-
     term disability and commitments to hold health and safety
     conferences.

   * Pension.  The Master Agreement provides for the continued
     maintenance of certain pension plans for eligible employees.

   * Effective Date.  The Master Agreement by its terms becomes
     effective upon (i) ratification by a simple majority of the
     Union members voting at the covered locations; and (ii) the
     consummation of a plan of reorganization incorporating the
     terms of the Master Agreement.  In addition, the
     successorship provisions of the Master Agreement become
     effective immediately upon the Union members' ratification
     of the Master Agreement.

  * Term.  The Master Agreement expires on April 27, 2014.

The Master Agreement contains a successorship provision, which
obligates AbitibiBowater to inform any purchaser, lessee,
transferee or assignee of a facility covered by the CBAs of the
Master Agreement's existence.

The Successorship Clause also obligates AbitibiBowater to make the
sale, transfer, or assignment of that facility conditional upon
the purchaser, lessee, transferee or assignee assuming all the
obligations of the Master Agreement until its expiration date and
treating the affected employees in accordance with the terms of
the Master Agreement.

Pursuant to the Master Agreement, the Debtors have agreed to
assume in full all of the CBAs, as modified, pursuant to their
Chapter 11 Plan of Reorganization.

In addition, the Master Agreement provides that AbitibiBowater:

  -- will pay in the ordinary course all obligations that
     accrued under the CBAs prior to assumption including accrued
     vacation, accrued sick leave, unpaid medical and other
     benefits, unpaid obligations owing to any pension and
     welfare plan, and union dues and other monies withheld from
     employee payroll; and

  -- will process through the grievance and arbitration
     procedure of the applicable CBA any grievance that is
     either pending as of the date of the assumption of the CBA
     or that involves an alleged breach of the CBA that occurred
     prior to the assumption of the CBA, and will pay in the
     ordinary course and comply with any settlement entered by
     the parties or remedy ordered by an arbitrator acting
     pursuant to the CBA.

                         Unions' Claims

The USW filed proofs of claim on November 2009 and April 2010:

6932 Amended   04/06/10  Bowater Inc.

The Union Claims assert liquidated and unliquidated claims against
the Debtors alleging amounts more than $108 million for claims
arising from grievances, accrued liabilities relating to other
post-retirement benefits, miscellaneous benefits, severance and
gain sharing.

The Master Agreement provides for the continuation of, as
modified, the pension and retiree benefits.  Accordingly, upon the
effectiveness of the Master Agreement, the Unions have agreed to
withdraw their proofs of claims without prejudice to:

  (1) AbitibiBowater's obligations under the Master Agreement
      and the order approving the Debtors' Motion;

  (2) the Unions' pursuit of grievances and arbitrations in the
      ordinary course;

  (3) the right of the Unions or the Company to apply to the
      Court for the resolution of any dispute over the priority,
      or the treatment under any plan of reorganization, to be
      accorded to any grievance settlement entered by the
      parties or remedy ordered by an arbitrator acting pursuant
      to the CBA; and

  (4) the Unions' right to reinstate and file proofs of claim if
      a plan of reorganization incorporating the Master
      Agreement is not consummated.

ABITIBIBOWATER INC: Reduces Woodbridge Claim to $9 Million
----------------------------------------------------------
AbitibiBowater Inc. and its units ask the Court to temporarily
reduce the amount of Claim No. 4370 filed by The Woodbridge
Company Limited, Woodbridge International Holdings Limited and
Woodbridge International Holdings S.A. to $9 million solely for
the purposes of voting on the Second Amended Joint Plan of
Reorganization.

The Woodbridge Parties filed Claim No. 4370 against Debtor Abitibi
Consolidated Sales Corporation for $213.75 million based allegedly
on damages arising from the rejection of a certain call agreement.

ACSC owns 52.5% of the Augusta Newsprint Company, while Augusta
Newsprint Inc., a subsidiary of the Woodbridge Entities, owns the
remaining 47.5%.  The Court entered an order in October 2009,
authorizing ACSC to reject a call agreement between the Woodbridge
Parties and the Debtors, which required ACSC to either buy out its
partner at a disproportionately high price, or alternatively,
relinquish to WIHL and WIHSA a far greater percentage of proceeds
from a third party sale than ANI's 47.5% interest in the
Partnership.

Although unclear from the attachments of Claim No. 4370, the
$213.7 million claim amount presumably represents the Woodbridge
Parties' alleged entitlement to damages in the approximate amount
of the "Alternative Transaction Price," since the rejection of the
Call Agreement prevented the Woodbridge Parties from obtaining the
purchase price from ACSC or the Alternative Transaction Price from
another buyer of the Partnership, Sean T. Greecher, Esq., at Young
Conaway Stargatt & Taylor, LLP, in Wilmington, Delaware, points
out.

Mr. Greecher argues that the Claim is grossly overstated.  At the
outset, he clarifies, ACSC was "not required" to exercise its
buyout option and pay the purchase price.

More importantly, Mr. Greecher says, rejection of the Call
Agreement could never result in damages equal to the Alternative
Rejection Price of $215 million.  The Call Agreement only entitled
the Woodbridge Parties to receive the amount that a third-party
buyer would have been willing to pay for the Partnership, up to a
maximum of $215 million, he notes.

Mr. Greecher maintains that the amount of the Woodbridge Claim
based on the fair market value of the Partnership, adjusted for
the Woodbridge Parties' ownership interest in the Partnership and
to reflect actual damages sustained from the forced sale, is
estimated at $9 million:

  -- Mr. Greecher says a forced sale would have yielded anything
     close to the entire Alternative Transaction Price.  The
     Monitor appointed in the Canadian Debtors' cases estimates
     that the sale price that ultimately could have been
     obtained would have been approximately $90 million -- the
     Forced Sale Amount -- not $213 million.

  -- Any damages sustained by the Woodbridge Parties, Mr.
     Greecher adds, must be offset by the value of ANI's
     percentage interest in the going-concern Partnership.
     Thus, to properly calculate the amount of the Claim, the
     Forced Sale Amount should be reduced in an amount equal to
     the estimated value of ANI's interest in the Partnership as
     a going concern.  The Debtors' financial advisors estimate
     the total value of the Partnership as a going concern at
     $170 million as of March 30, 2009.  Thus, the Woodbridge
     Parties' share of the Partnership value at 47.5% is
     approximately $81 million.

                       Parties Stipulate

The Debtors relate that subsequent to the filing of their
objection, they worked with the Woodbridge Parties with respect to
informal concerns raised by the Woodbridge Parties.

As a result of the negotiations, the parties stipulate that the
Debtors' objection to Woodbridge's Claim is resolved and the Claim
is temporarily reduced to $100 solely for purposes of voting on
the Plan.

Judge Kevin J. Carey approves the parties' stipulation.

AGUA CALIENTE: Fitch Downgrades Issuer Default Rating to 'BB'
-------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has downgraded the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla
Indians' ratings:

  -- Issuer rating to 'BB' from 'BB+';

  -- Revenue bonds, series 2003 to 'BB+' from 'BBB-';

  -- Senior secured notes, series 2006, 2007, and 2008 to 'BB+'
     from 'BBB-'.

The Rating Outlook remains Negative.

The downgrade reflects the continued poor operating performance at
Agua's two casino properties in the Palm Springs, CA region, which
has exceeded Fitch's prior expectations.  Through the first nine
months of fiscal 2010 (fiscal year ends Sept. 30) EBITDA declined
by 10% compared to the same period last year.  The primary credit
strength supporting Agua's 'BB' issuer rating is the credit's
solid albeit deteriorating liquidity profile.  Despite the poor
operating trends, both properties generate strong free cash flow
in excess of the gaming division's fixed expenses, there are no
significant near-term debt maturities, and no capital project
development risk.

Southern California Gaming Market Remains Weak:

When Fitch downgraded Agua's issuer rating to 'BB+' in December
2009, Fitch indicated that maintaining the 'BB+' rating was
predicated on the expected stabilization of operating trends (i.e.
fewer bad trends) and that continued significant operating
declines would likely lead to further rating pressure.  Agua's
EBITDA fell during its peak season by 18% and 16% in May and June,
respectively, an acceleration from the more moderate declines seen
in the first seven months of the fiscal year.  There was no room
in the previous rating for the sequential deterioration, which
primarily drove the rating downgrade.  With unemployment rate
lingering around 14%-15% in the Riverside-San Bernardino MSA and
more than 4% of the households in the area filing for foreclosure
in the first half of 2010 (RealtyTrac.com), a meaningful recovery
in demand seems unlikely in the near term.

Adequate Liquidity and Solid Free Cash Profile Offset Weak
Operating Trend:

The 'BB' issuer rating is supported by the tribe's still ample
financial flexibility.  Fitch believes that the casino cash flows
at current levels provide significant cushion after debt service,
maintenance capex and the tribe's basic governmental needs are
met.  Further, liquidity needs are minimal as the tribe's debt is
amortizing and there are no major capital projects on the horizon.
Sources of cash include only cash flow of the gaming division and
cash on the balance sheet, as the credit does not maintain access
to a committed source of external liquidity.  Mitigating risk
related to lack of access to external capital, the casinos
generate ample free cash flow.  Even in a Fitch stress case
scenario assuming a significant EBITDA decline in Agua's fiscal
2010 before a moderation in the operating trend in fiscal 2011,
the credit maintains more than 2.0 times coverage of its maximum
annual debt service requirement.

Guidelines for Further Rating Actions

The Negative Outlook indicates that another downgrade is possible
in the near-to-intermediate term if there is no stabilization in
the operating trends.  Fitch expects EBITDA declines to moderate
over the next three to six months and flat growth for fiscal 2011.
These assumptions are contingent on conditions in Agua's market
having bottomed out in calendar 2010 and beginning to marginally
improve by 2011.

Fitch notes the 2.0x MADS coverage bond covenant, which would be
an event of default if breached.  Agua would trigger the covenant
if EBITDA was to decline by 11% from latest 12-months EBITDA
through June 30, 2010.  As of the most recent quarter, Fitch
calculates Agua's LTM coverage of MADS was 2.3x, although coverage
of actual debt service was more comfortable at 2.5x.  While Fitch
beleives it unlikely that the bondholders will elect to accelerate
the principal in case of a breach, and relatively amicable
waivers/forbearances or a covenant amendment would likely ensue,
the uncertainty as to how these events would unfold is a concern.
A downgrade of Agua's ratings resulting from a potential covenant
breach would likely be capped at one or two notches given the
still strong financial flexibility at around the 2.0x threshold.
Fitch estimates Agua's LTM debt/EBITDA leverage is slightly more
than 3x as of June 30, 2010.  Current ratings anticipate a
leverage outlook in the 3x range through fiscal 2011, while there
would be downward rating pressure if the leverage outlook
approached the mid-3x range.

Factored into the rating is Agua's recent use of its governmental
reserves to supplement its governmental expenditures including per
capita distributions, compensating for the declining cash flows at
the tribe's casinos.  The government has maintained solid
financial flexibility due to its conservative financial policy of
building cash reserves in the event of a drop in the casino cash
flow distributed to the government.  Historically, the tribe's
practice has been to transfer essentially all cash generated by
the casinos (before debt service) to the government and then
allocate funds for per capita distributions, general governmental
services and Economic Development, which has been the functional
component for debt service.  As the cash flows shrunk, the amounts
allocated for Economic Development per the set allocation formula
have been insufficient to cover full debt service requirements,
prompting the tribe to make up the shortfalls using its
governmental reserves.  This allowed the tribe to keep the per
capital distribution allocation percentage intact.  Agua used
significant amount of reserves to make up shortfalls when making
its October 2009 principal payment and intends to do the same for
the October 2010 payment.  While the casino management has
expressed that the tribe would likely reduce the per capita
distribution allocation at some point to maintain the reserves,
the continued use of reserves for debt service is a credit concern
and is another consideration in the downgrade to 'BB' and the
Negative Outlook.  It should be noted that the bondholders do have
priority in the casino cash flows over the tribe, and that daily
sweeps of cash flows to bond trustee would be activated if debt
service coverage were to decline below 2.0x should the tribe fail
to cure the covenant violation within the prescribed time frame.

Transaction Ratings Downgraded to 'BB+'

The bonds and notes rank pari passu with respect to bondholders'
security interest in the cash flows of the tribe's casino gaming
operations.  A 'BB+' rating is assigned to debt secured by a lien
on the gaming enterprise cash flows.  The transactions are rated
one notch above the issuer rating of 'BB' due to credit
enhancement provided by security covenants included in the legal
documents associated with the transactions.  The 2003 bonds and
2006, 2007 and 2008 notes have term maturities in 2015, 2016 and
2021.  Principal payments on the notes began in 2008 and will ramp
up through 2010.


ALL AMERICAN: Financing Constraints Pose Challenges
---------------------------------------------------
All American Group Inc. said in an update to shareholders that it
recorded net sales from continuing operations of $19.6 million for
the second quarter of 2010 compared to $17.7 million reported for
the same period in 2009, an increase of 10.8%.  The Company said
this comparison is even more favorable when looking at the first 6
months, with total revenues almost 42% higher than in 2009,
totaling $41.1 million vs. $29.0 million last year.  Nevertheless,
the increased revenues and improved year-to-date operating results
were insufficient to prevent a bottom-line loss for the quarter.

Non-cash charges due to the accounting of the HIG All American,
LLC convertible debt and warrants greatly impacted reported
bottom-line losses.  The accounting for this debt and these
warrants must be re-evaluated quarterly in accordance with GAAP.
Of the $15.3 million in reported losses for the first half of
2010, $7.3 million is a non-cash debt extinguishment charge
related to the First Amendment to the HIG loan agreement.

In addition, $2.3 million of the total interest expense of $3.0
million are also non-cash charges related to the HIG debt.  These
charges do not impact the operating results or the cash flow of
the Company.  The Company said, "Therefore, we believe the
appropriate financial metrics to focus on as proxies for Company
performance are revenues, operating profits and cash flow."

According to the Company, "A major challenge to our bottom line is
covering the fixed costs of manufacturing plants experiencing very
low capacity utilization.  This is directly tied to revenues,
which have lagged because of the disparity in major project
activity year over year, and because of continuing depressed
housing market conditions.  The well-known difficulties in
obtaining financing for home sales spread to financing of
commercial projects.  The timing of large projects has become
almost entirely dependent upon when banks release funding to our
customers.  This unexpectedly delayed revenues from projects that
were under contract.  For example, due solely to financing
constraints faced by our customers, construction of a large
apartment complex stalled mid-project, and a hotel resort project
has been postponed several times this year."

                     About All American Group

Elkhart, Indiana-based All American Group, Inc., formerly Coachmen
Industries, Inc., (OTC:COHM.PK) says it is one of America's
premier systems-built construction companies under the ALL
AMERICAN BUILDING SYSTEMS(R), ALL AMERICAN HOMES(R), and MOD-U-
KRAF(R) brands, as well as a manufacturer of specialty vehicles.

At June 30, 2010, the Company had total assets of $81.310 million,
total liabilities of $48.104 million, and shareholders' equity of
$33.206 million.

During the first quarter of 2010, the Company failed to meet
certain financial covenants of the credit agreement with H.I.G.
All American LLC.  H.I.G. did not declare the Company to be in
default of any covenant and on April 5, 2010, the Company and
H.I.G. entered into the First Amendment to the Loan Agreement.
H.I.G. waived specified Events of Default that had occurred under
the Loan Agreement dated October 27, 2009 between the Company and
H.I.G. prior to April 5, 2010.

The Company said in its Form 10-Q report for the second quarter of
2010, that operating results for the six month period ended June
30, 2010, failed to meet the revised debt covenants set with
H.I.G. in the First Amendment to the Loan Agreement.  H.I.G. has
waived the covenant defaults through July 31, 2010 in exchange for
a waiver fee and expenses of $800,000 representing the value of
the penalties prescribed in the First Amendment, plus expenses,
and the issuance on August 24, 2010 of the Second Amended and
Restated Tranche B Note.  The Second Amendment provides that the
waiver fee and expenses, plus accrued interest on the convertible
debt thru August 24, 2010 of $800,000, be added to the principal
amount of the convertible note.  As a result of the Second
Amendment, the Tranche B Note has a face value of $12.5 million.

The Board of Directors and H.I.G. are currently in discussions to
work out mutually acceptable agreements for the long-term.  Since
the Company cannot be assured it will be in compliance with the
existing covenants after July 31, 2010 and discussions with H.I.G.
regarding revised covenants are continuing.

been very slow.


AMBAC FIN'L: Harrisburg to Skip $3MM Bond Payment Due in 2 Weeks
----------------------------------------------------------------
Dow Jones Newswires' Romy Varghese reports the city of Harrisburg,
Pennsylvania, said it will skip a $3.29 million municipal-bond
payment due in two weeks, marking the second-largest general-
obligation municipal-bond default this year.

Dow Jones says the city's inability to make the payment, which is
expected to be covered by its bond insurer, may feed worries about
parts of the $2.8 trillion municipal-bond market, particularly
bonds issued by smaller entities that may have fewer resources
than states or larger governments.

According to Dow Jones, Ambac Assurance has insured two general-
obligation bond series of 1997 that Harrisburg said this week it
would default on.  Those securities have a face value of $51.5
million and mature in 2022.  Ambac officials didn't return calls
for comment, Dow Jones says.

Dow Jones relates the city's interim chief of staff and business
administrator, Robert Kroboth, broke the news of the default in a
letter dated Aug. 30 to the paying agent, BNY Mellon.
"Unfortunately," he wrote, "the City's current financial situation
precludes us from making any transfer to fund for these debt
service payments at this time."

According to Dow Jones, Harrisburg mayor Linda Thompson recently
picked a financial adviser to help the city repair its finances.
But its contract has yet to be finalized, said her spokesman Chuck
Ardo, and the team isn't being paid as it does "outreach."

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on August 19,
Harrisburg hired Scott Balice Strategies to help plot a financial
recovery plan.

                        Incinerator Project

Dow Jones relates that Harrisburg's default is a sign its
financial problems are growing beyond a failed incinerator project
that led some city officials earlier this year to raise the idea
of filing for a rare municipal bankruptcy.  Dow Jones notes the
city hasn't formally pursued that option, and Gov. Ed Rendell, a
Democrat, has publicly discouraged the idea.  But Harrisburg
officials haven't budgeted $68 million in payments due later this
year for the $288 million debt on the incinerator project.  They
did include payments for the general-obligation debt this year,
but still fell short.  In a report as of June 30, Harrisburg
officials projected a $4.3 million general-fund deficit at the end
of the year.

A spokesman for the mayor, speaking about the city's fiscal
situation, said the city is "working feverishly to address the
issue, and hopefully it will find a way to meet that challenge."

The incinerator is owned by a municipal entity, the Harrisburg
Authority, that is separate from the city, but the city is the
first guarantor of the debt.  Dow Jones relates this year's
incinerator payments have been covered by reserves; by Dauphin
County, which is the guarantor behind the city on almost half of
the debt; and by bond insurer Assured Guaranty Municipal, a unit
of Assured Guaranty Ltd. that has guaranteed $196 million of the
debt.

                       About Harrisburg, PA

The city of Harrisburg is coping with debt related to a failed
revamp of an incinerator.  The outstanding principal on the
Incinerator debt is $288 million.  Total principal and interest on
this debt would amount to approximately $458 million.  Debt
service payments on the total incinerator debt are $20 million per
year.  Of this total, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, is responsible
for roughly $10 million and Harrisburg is responsible for the
other $10 million.   The city is guarantor on 100% of the $288
million Incinerator debt.

Ambac Assurance Corporation is the principal operating subsidiary
of Ambac Financial Group, Inc.

In March 2010, the Office of the Commissioner of Insurance of the
State of Wisconsin commenced rehabilitation proceedings with
respect to $35 billion in policies written by Ambac Assurance.
Those policies primarily cover principal and interest payments on
souring mortgage securities.  The regulator also negotiated a
potential settlement to roughly $17 billion in contracts on
complex financial products with a group of banks.  The products --
collateralized-debt obligations -- are pools of securities that
have sharply deteriorated in value.

                       About Ambac Financial

Headquartered in New York, Ambac Financial Group, Inc., through
its subsidiaries, provided financial guarantees and financial
services to clients in both the public and private sectors around
the world.

KPMG LLP, in New York, expressed substantial doubt about the
Company's ability to continue as a going concern, following the
Company's 2009 financial results.  The independent auditors noted
of the significant deterioration of Ambac's guaranteed portfolio
coupled with the inability to write new financial guarantees has
adversely impacted the business, results of operations and
financial condition of the Company's operating subsidiary.  KPMG
also noted of the Company's limited liquidity.

Ambac Financial noted in its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended
June 30, 2010 that its liquidity and solvency are largely
dependent on dividends principal financial guarantee operating
subsidiary, Ambac Assurance Corporation, and on the value of the
subsidiary.  Ambac Financial said that Ambac Assurance is "highly
unlikely" to be able to make dividend payments to Ambac for the
foreseeable future.  Ambac Financial said it is currently pursuing
raising additional capital and is also pursuing a restructuring of
its outstanding debt through a prepackaged bankruptcy proceeding.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2010, showed
$30.05 billion in total assets, $31.47 billion in total
liabilities, and $1.42 billion in total stockholders' deficit.

Ambac once boasted top triple-A credit ratings.  In November 2009,
Ambac warned it could have problems paying off debt that comes due
in 2011.  Before the financial crisis, Ambac was the second-
biggest bond insurer behind MBIA Inc.

BRIDGEVIEW AEROSOL: Gets 8th Interim OK to Use Well Fargo's Cash
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Pamela S. Hollis of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of Illinois entered an interim order, for the
eight time, allowing Bridgeview Aerosol, LLC, Aeronuevo, LLC, and
USAerosols, LLC, to use the cash collateral of Well Fargo Bank,

BROWN PUBLISHING: Asks for Plan Extension, Sees Sale to PNC Friday
------------------------------------------------------------------
Brown Publishing Company and its units ask the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Eastern District of New York to extend their
exclusive periods to file and solicit acceptances for a Chapter 11
plan until October 29, 2010; and December 28, respectively.

The Debtors explain that they were unable to close the sale of
their assets to Brown Media Corporation because BMC confirmed that
it lacked the financial ability to close at this time.  The
Debtors commenced discussions with PNC Bank, N.A., the next
highest bidder for the assets, and PNC informed the Debtors that,
while it hopes to close sooner, it expects a closing to occur no
later than September 3.

The Debtors relate that they are in the process of completing an
initial draft of a plan of liquidation, which will provide for the
distribution of the net proceeds of the asset sales, including any
sales that may be closed in the coming days; the liquidation of
any remaining assets, including causes of action; and the
distribution of all resulting proceeds to the Debtors' creditors
in accordance with their relative priorities.

The Debtors filed their extension motion before the exclusive plan
proposal period was set to expire on August 30.

CARE INVESTMENT: Trading Suspended at New York Stock Exchange
-------------------------------------------------------------
Care Investment Trust Inc. received a letter dated August 27,
2010, from the New York Stock Exchange stating that the common
stock of the Company was suspended from the NYSE as of market
close on August 26, 2010, and an application by the NYSE to the
Securities and Exchange Commission to delist the issue is pending
completion of applicable NYSE procedures, which includes the
Company's right to appeal the NYSE Staff's decision.  The letter
also stated that the NYSE decision was made after having received
the final results on the completion of the Company's self tender
offer, which confirmed that fewer than 600,000 shares of the
Company's common stock remained publicly held.

The Company intends to appeal the NYSE Staff's decision and to
promptly take steps to cure the deficiency related to the minimum
number of publicly held shares.  However, there can be no
assurance that it will be successful in doing so.  The review
process by NYSE requires a minimum of 25 business days from
receipt of the Company's notice of appeal.

The actions being considered to address the deficiency related to
the minimum number of publicly held shares include the possible
declaration of a stock split to be effected in the form of a stock
dividend, subject to, among other things, the review and approval
of the Board of Directors of the Company.  The Company will update
stockholders regarding this issue in a future press release.

In order to facilitate trading in its stock during the pendency of
the NYSE appeal process, the Company intends to apply for listing
on the OTCQX listing platform.  There can be no assurance that
such application will be granted by the OTCQX or that there will
continue to be an active trading market for the Company's common
stock.  The Company will update stockholders of the acceptance or
denial of the OTCQX application through the issuance of a future
press release.

Prior to the completion of the OTCQX application process,
stockholders may trade the Company's stock through their brokers
on the OTCQB.

CHEMTURA CORP: Proposes Chartis Buybank Agreement
-------------------------------------------------
Chemtura Corp. and its units ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
authority to enter into a settlement, release, and buyback
agreement with certain insurers referred to as "the Chartis
Insurers" and sell portions of certain insurance policies.

The Chartis Insurers are AIU Insurance Company, American Home
Assurance Company, Chartis Specialty Insurance Company, Granite
State Insurance Company, Illinois National Insurance Company, The
Insurance Company of the State of Pennsylvania, Lexington
Insurance Company, and National Union Fire Insurance Company of
Pittsburgh, PA, and their parents and subsidiaries.

The Chartis Insurers' obligation to provide insurance coverage
for diacetyl-related liability is currently the subject of two
pending lawsuits.  In February 2010, the Chartis Insurers
commenced an action against Chemtura Canada Co./Cie.  In turn,
Chemtura Corp. and Chemtura Canada commenced an action against
the Chartis Insurers.  Both actions seek a declaration of
coverage for diacetyl-related claims.

Richard M. Cieri, Esq., at Kirkland & Ellis LLP, in New York,
reveals that the Chartis Agreement:

  -- resolves the coverage litigation pending among Chemtura
     Corp. and Chemtura Canada and the Chartis Insurers; and

  -- guarantees access to insurance coverage up to a certain
     amount to defend and indemnify present and future
     diacetyl-related claims.

The salient terms of the Chartis Agreement are:

   (a) Coverage Buyback.  Chemtura Corp. and Chemtura Canada will
       sell to the Chartis Insurers all coverage under the
       policies for diacetyl claims in return for the Chartis
       Insurers' agreement to pay the total settlement amount.

   (b) Settlement Effective Date.  The Agreement becomes
       effective on the first business day after the
       satisfaction of several conditions, including the
       Parties' execution of the Agreement and the Bankruptcy
       Court' approval.

   (c) Payment of the Present Diacetyl Claim Settlement Amount.
       The Chartis Insurers will pay up to $35,000,000 for the
       resolution of the Present Diacetyl Claims.

       Up to $25,000,000 of the Present Diacetyl Claim
       Settlement Amount will be used to pay directly or
       reimburse half of the settlement amount under a
       settlement the Debtors entered into with Humphrey
       Farrington & McClaim P.C., on behalf of the firm's
       diacetyl-related clients.

       In addition, the Chartis Insurers will pay half of the
       indemnity cost, up to an amount aggregating $10,000,000,
       of any other Present Diacetyl Claim resolved by
       settlement or litigation either to Chemtura or directly
       to the counsel for the holder of the claim.  The amounts
       will be paid within 30 days of receipt of claim notice
       letters and executed releases.

       Lastly, the Chartis Insurers will pay half of the defense
       costs incurred after the execution of the Agreement of
       any litigated Present Diacetyl Claim.

   (d) Payment of Future Costs.  The Chartis Insurers will pay
       up to a certain amount of the Debtors' future defense and
       indemnity costs related to any claim or lawsuit alleging
       injuries arising out of exposure to butter flavorings
       containing diacetyl, or a claim for contribution or
       indemnity.  The Chartis Insurers will be allowed to
       participate in the administration and defense of any
       Future Diacetyl Claims.  All payments for future defense
       and indemnity costs will not be subject to any
       deductibles, charge backs, retrospective premium
       adjustments, or any deductions.

   (e) Self-Insured Retentions.  The Parties agree that the
       Debtors' payments to resolve the Present Diacetyl Claims
       -- to the extent the payments meet or exceed $35,000,000,
       including the portion of its payment into an escrow
       account that is not reimbursed by the Chartis Insurers
       under the Agreement, its settlement payments in certain
       cases, and any applicable unreimbursed defense costs --
       will satisfy and exhaust certain self-insured retentions
       that may be applicable to certain claims under certain
       Insurance Policies.

   (f) Releases and Indemnity.  In consideration of the promises
       in the Agreement, the Debtors and the Chartis Insurers
       fully release, acquit, and forever discharge each other
       from any and all claims arising from or relating to
       Diacetyl Claims.

   (g) Additional Releases.  Chemtura Corp. and Chemtura Canada
       will obtain and deliver to the Chartis Insurers a release
       from each HFM Diacetyl Claimant, as well as a release
       from any other individual or corporate holder of a
       Diacetyl Claim with whom the Debtors settles the
       individual holder's Present Diacetyl Claim.  Furthermore,
       Chemtura Corp. and Chemtura Canada will obtain and
       deliver or have delivered to the Chartis Insurers a
       release from each individual and corporate holder of a
       Future Diacetyl Claim with whom the Debtors settles the
       individual Holder's Future Diacetyl Claim and for which
       the Chartis Insurers directly pays or reimburses Chemtura
       Corp. and Chemtura Canada for Future Defense Costs.

   (h) Dismissal of Coverage Actions and Withdrawal of Proofs of
       Claim.  As soon as practicable and no later than 10
       business days after the Settlement Effective Date, the
       Parties will file Stipulated Dismissals in the Coverage
       Actions dismissing without prejudice and without costs to
       the other Party all claims and causes of action against
       the other Party in the Coverage Actions.  The Chartis
       Insurers further agree that the Agreement resolves the
       Proofs of Claim to the extent they involve or are based
       on Diacetyl Claims without any further action of the
       Parties.

The Debtors filed a redacted version of the Chartis Agreement.
The redacted document does not disclose the specific coverage of
diacetyl claims that may be asserted against the Debtors in the
future.  The Debtors seek the Court's authority to file an
unredacted version of the Agreement under seal.

"While the Debtors have no objection to disclosure of the
settlement amount relating to the Present Diacetyl Claims, both
the Chartis Insurers and the Debtors agree that the Future
Diacetyl Claims Settlement Amount is highly sensitive,
confidential business information," Mr. Cieri tells the Court.

He avers that "disclosure of this information may place Chemtura,
Chemtura Canada, and the Chartis Insurers at a disadvantage in
the context of settlement discussions related to any future
diacetyl claims."

A copy of the redacted Chartis Agreement is available for free
at http://bankrupt.com/misc/Chemtura_ChartisInsurersBuybackPact.pdf

The Debtors also ask U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Robert Gerber to hear
their request on September 8, 2010, and set the deadline for the
filing of objections to their request for September 2, 2010.

CHEMTURA CORP: Wins OK for Contract Interest Rate Procedures
------------------------------------------------------------
Chemtura Corporation and its debtor affiliates received approval
from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for uniform contract interest rate
procedures to be implemented in connection with their Chapter 11
Plan of Reorganization.

Section 3.3(n)(i) of the Plan provides that:

  "to the extent that the Plan  provides for payment of interest
  to holders of Allowed Unsecured Claims, such interest shall be
  paid in the same form of consideration as the underlying
  Allowed Unsecured Claim, and the amount of Allowed interest
  shall be calculated between the later  of the date such
  Allowed Claim (A) became due in the ordinary course of
  business or (B) was invoiced to the applicable Debtor, on the
  one hand, and the Effective Date, on the other hand, with
  such interest to be payable at the federal judgment rate as of
  the Petition Date or at the contract rate to the extent
  allowable under applicable law and in accordance with the
  Contract Interest Rate Procedures."

Section 1.1.38 of the Plan defines the Contract Interest Rate
Procedures as "certain procedures by which any holder of an
Unsecured Claim may substantiate the existence of any existing
contract that specifies the payment of interest, in substantially
the form approved by the Bankruptcy Court before the Confirmation
Hearing."

           Proposed Contract Interest Rate Procedures

The Debtors intend to mail a notice describing the Notice of
Contract Interest Rate Procedures to all holders of General
Unsecured Claims and Convenience Claims entitled to payment of
postpetition interest and to which the Contract Interest Rate
Procedures apply under the terms of the Plan.

Any holder of a General Unsecured Claim or Convenience Claim
entitled to payment of interest under the Plan who wishes to
substantiate the existence of an existing contract, invoice
or other agreement that specifies the payment of interest must
submit a "Notice of Contract Rate of Interest" to the Debtors'
Voting and Claims Agent by no later than September 9, 2010.
Any Notice of Contract Rate of Interest must:

  (a) identify the Claim and the contractual rate of interest
      applicable to the Claim;

  (b) attach a copy of the contract, invoice or agreement
      relating to the Claim; and

  (c) be signed by the holder of the Claim or its authorized
      representative under penalty of perjury.

A Notice of Contract Rate Interest does not need to be filed with
the Bankruptcy Court, but it must be received by the Debtors'
voting and claims agent at:

       Chemtura Balloting Center
       c/o Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC
       2335 Alaska Ave.
       El Segundo, California 90245

Failure by a holder of a General Unsecured Claim, Convenience
Claim or its authorized representative to timely submit a
response will be deemed an admission that no contract rate of
interest exists with respect to the holder's General Unsecured
Claim or Convenience Claim, and the holder of the General
Unsecured Claim or Convenience Claim will receive interest at the
federal judgment rate as of the Petition Date.

The Contract Interest Rate Procedures also describe the extent to
which the Debtors, the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors
or the Official Committee of Equity Security Holders may contest
a claimant's assertion of a contract rate of interest any time
before the Plan's effective date; and that upon an objection the
claimant has until 60 days after the Effective Date to request a
hearing to resolve the dispute concerning the amount of
postpetition interest due to the particular claimant.

A copy of the Proposed Contract Interest Rate Procedures is
available for free at:

Richard M. Cieri, Esq., at Kirkland & Ellis LLP, in New York,
contends that the proposed Contract Interest Rate Procedures are
necessary to implement the Plan by facilitating the calculation
of distributions, bringing certainty with respect to the amount
of postpetition interest due individual creditors and result in
fewer disputes after the Effective Date concerning the
calculation of interest.

                    About Coates International

Based in Wall Township, N.J., Coates International, Ltd.
(OTC BB: COTE) -- http://www.coatesengine.com/-- was incorporated
on August 31, 1988, for the purpose of researching, patenting and

Coates continues to have negative cash flows from operations,
recurring losses from operations, and has a stockholders'
deficiency.  These conditions raise substantial doubt about its

COZUMEL CARIBE: Note Servicer Disputes Chapter 15 Bid
-----------------------------------------------------
Dow Jones' DBR Small Cap reports that CT Investment Management
Co., the special servicer of $103 million in notes issued by
Cozumel Caribe SA, is taking another shot at the Mexican tourism-
services company, this time seeking to block Cozumel Caribe's bid
for recognition of its bankruptcy case in the U.S.

According to DBR, in court papers filed Monday with the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan, CT Investment invoked similar
sentiments, this time claiming the company was "trampling the
rights of its secured creditors" by seeking recognition of its
foreign proceedings under Chapter 15 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.

DBR notes CT Investment, which services secured notes held by a
group led by LaSalle Bank, has already proven itself to be a loud
voice in Cozumel Caribe's bankruptcy proceedings.  Earlier this
summer, it took aim at the company's request to permit its Mexican
insolvency overseer to seize control of all current and future
funds in the company's U.S. accounts, a move CT Investment said
would be unfair to secured creditors.

Cozumel Caribe SA de CV, a Mexican provider of tourism services at
a beachfront hotel in Cozumel, filed for Chapter 15 bankruptcy
protection (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 10-13913) on July 20, 2010.
Cozumel Caribe reported more than $100 million in debts and assets
of more than $10 million in its bankruptcy petition.

DOLLAR THRIFTY: Now Expects $240MM to $260MM EBITDA for 2010
------------------------------------------------------------
Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group, Inc. provided an update on
Corporate Adjusted EBITDA and fleet cost expectations for the full
year of 2010.  As part of the update, the Company noted that its
previously announced revenue guidance remains unchanged.

Based on solid operating performance in July and August, combined
with the Company's revised outlook for fleet costs for the balance
of 2010, the Company now expects Corporate Adjusted EBITDA,
excluding merger-related expenses, to be within a range of $240
million to $260 million for the full year of 2010, an increase of
$40 million from the Company's previously announced guidance
range.  The Company noted that approximately half of the increase
is attributable to changes in expectations for fleet costs, with
the remainder resulting from continued strength in operations and
ongoing cost control efforts.  The Company's 2009 Corporate
Adjusted EBITDA was $99.4 million.

The Company noted that it is lowering its estimate for vehicle
depreciation per unit per month to a range of $270 to $290 for the
third and fourth quarters of 2010, based on continued strength in
residual values and favorable trends in vehicle disposition
results. Accordingly the Company is also lowering its fleet cost
target for the full year of 2010 to a range of $230 to $240 per
unit per month.

                  Update of 2011 Projections

The Company noted today that it was reaffirming its previously
announced fleet cost estimate for 2011 of $300 to $310 per unit
per month.  The Company noted that it expects solid fundamentals
in the used car market in 2011 as demand for used cars is expected
to be firm, while supply is expected to be somewhat constrained.
The Company noted, however, that it does expect the used car
market to be slightly less robust in 2011 than current market
conditions, and has based its estimated 2011 fleet cost on this
expectation.

The Company also noted that the 2011 projections previously made
public in May of 2010 through the filing of the preliminary
registration statement on Form S-4 (registration statement number
333-167085) that included a preliminary proxy statement of DTG and
constituted a preliminary prospectus of Hertz, were based on fleet
costs above these levels for 2011.  The Corporate Adjusted EBITDA
projection previously set forth in the preliminary prospectus was
$173 million.

Adjusting the previously disclosed projections to give effect only
to the change in the 2011 fleet cost discussed above, Corporate
Adjusted EBITDA would range from $186 million to $198 million for
2011.

DREIER LLP: Ch. 7 Trustee Wants to Disallow Clients' $6MM Claims
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Chapter 7 trustee for Marc Dreier, has asked the bankruptcy
court to disallow claims made by two former clients for
$6.3 million that Mr. Dreier allegedly stole after orchestrating a
bogus settlement between them and an investment manager,
Bankruptcy Law360 reports.

                         About Dreier LLP

Marc Dreier founded New York-based law firm Dreier LLP --
http://www.dreierllp.com/-- in 1996.

On December 8, 2008, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission
filed a suit, alleging that Mr. Dreier made fraudulent offers and
sales of securities in several cities, selling fake promissory
notes to hedge and other private investment funds.  The SEC
asserted that Mr. Dreier also distributed phony financial
statements and audit opinions, and recruited accomplices in
connection with that scheme.  Mr. Dreier has been charged by the
U.S. government for conspiracy, securities fraud and wire fraud
(S.D.N.Y. Case No. 09-cr-00085-JSR).

Dreier LLP sought chapter 11 protection (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No.
08-15051) on December 16, 2008.  Stephen J. Shimshak, Esq., at
Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP, was tapped as
counsel.  The Debtor estimated assets of $100 million to
$500 million, and debts between $10 million and $50 million in its
Chapter 11 petition.

Wachovia Bank National Association, Sheila M. Gowan as trustee for
Dreier LLP's Chapter 11 Estate, and Steven J. Reisman as post-
confirmation representative of the bankruptcy estate of
360networks (USA) Inc. signed a petition that put Mr. Dreier into
bankruptcy under Chapter 7 on January 26, 2009 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y.
Case No. 09-10371).

Mr. Dreier, 60, pleaded guilty to fraud and other charges in May
2009.  The scheme to sell $700 million in fake notes unraveled in
late 2008.  Mr. Dreier is serving a 20-year sentence in a federal
prison in Minneapolis.

June 26, 2010.

The Company posted a wider net loss of $3,738,000 for the three
months ended June 26, 2010, from a net loss of $1,863,000 for the
same period ended June 27, 2009.  The Company posted a wider net

EVANS & SUTHERLAND: July 2 Balance Sheet Upside-Down by $11MM
-------------------------------------------------------------
Evans & Sutherland Computer Corporation had total assets of
$28,914,000, total liabilities of $40,041,000, and a stockholders'
deficit of $11,127,000 as of July 2, 2010.

The Company posted a net loss of $2,592,000 for the three months
ended July 2, 2010, from a net loss of $2,349,000 for the three
months ended June 26, 2009.  It posted a net loss of $5,142,000
for the six months ended July 2, 2010, from $6,282,000 for the six
months ended June 26, 2009.

Sales were $7,273,000 for the three months ended July 2, 2010,
from $6,074,000 for the three months ended June 26, 2009.  Sales
were $11,673,000 for the six months ended July 2, 2010, from
$11,932,000 for the same period ended June 26, 2009.

The Company said in its Form 10-Q report that liquidity and
capital resources have been pressured by past results of
operations.  The loss in the first six months continued the
negative impact on liquidity.  The loss combined with effects of
non-cash charges and changes in working capital decreased cash by
$703,000 to a balance of $1,897,000 as of July 2, 2010; however,
all of this decrease occurred in the first quarter of 2010.  Cash
increased slightly in the second quarter from $1,804,000 at
April 2, 2010 to $1,897,000 at July 2, 2010.  This increase was
attributable to changes in working capital, mostly the timing of
customer payments, as there was still a loss before non-cash
charges in the amount of $886,000 for the quarter ended July 2,
2010.  The $886,000 is an improvement over the $1,993,000 loss
before non-cash charges in the first quarter of 2010 and
demonstrates the positive effect of the Company's cost cutting
efforts.  The loss included pension expense which is considered a
cash charge but cash payments to the pension trust will be
deferred this year.

"We will continue to record significant pension expenses in 2010
and we maintain a significant balance sheet obligation to our
pension plans; however, no cash payments to the pension trust are
expected to be due until late 2011. The amount of cash payments
required to the pension trusts in 2011 and beyond will depend on
investment returns and new guidance emerging form recent
legislation which provides funding relief for pension plans.  The
adequacy of current liquidity sources to fund operations through
2010 will depend on a sufficient stream of new orders with
adequate customer progress payments and the ability of the
organization to support its operations after reducing its
resources.  Beyond 2010, along with customer revenue levels, we
may also be dependent on the many factors that could affect the
funding of our pension plan obligations," the Company said.

FIRST METALS: Gets Forbearance from Bondholders Until Nov. 1
------------------------------------------------------------
First Metals Inc. has received a forbearance from the majority of
bond holders until November 1st, 2010 allowing debt restructuring
discussions to progress and continued discussions with Kaskattama
Inc.

An interest payment of $130,900 due August 31, 2010 will not be
made by the Corporation which will put the Corporation in default
under the indenture.  The terms of the indenture provide that a 66
2/3 majority of the bondholders can forbear any action by the bond
holders.  Based on the current majority of bond holders who have
signed forbearance resolutions, the Corporation is confident it
would be able to secure the 66 2/3 majority if a meeting is
required to be called in this respect.

In conjunction with the negotiation of a proposed transaction, the
Corporation is completing a review of its operations.  Given the
state of the Corporation's finances, operations and capital
structure there is no certainty that the Corporation will be able
to continue as a going concern if a transaction is unable to be
completed and/or satisfactory arrangements cannot be made with
certain of the Corporation's stakeholders, including its bond
holders.

During this forbearance period, the Corporation expects to
continue to discuss with its bond holders various proposals being
exchanged between the bond holders and the Corporation which
generally contemplate, among other things, a deleveraging of the
Corporation through a debt for equity exchange.  There are no
assurances, however, that such discussions will be successful.

In the event that the forbearance expires or terminates prior to
the successful conclusion of the Corporation's negotiations with
its bond holders regarding the restructuring of its outstanding
debt, the Corporation will be in default of its obligations under
the indenture and the bond holders will have an immediate right
without further default on the part of the Corporation and not
conditional on any other occurrence, to accelerate the debt
obligations under the indenture and demand immediate repayment in
full and seek to foreclose on the collateral supporting such
obligations.  If the Corporation's debt obligations are
accelerated or are not restructured on acceptable terms, it is
likely the Corporation will be unable to repay such obligations
and may seek protection under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act or
similar relief.

GENERAL NUTRITION: S&P Raises Corporate Credit Rating to 'B+'
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it raised its corporate
credit rating on Pittsburgh-based General Nutrition Centers Inc.
to 'B+' from 'B' because of improved credit metrics and favorable
operating performance.  S&P had stated in its earlier outlook that
if total debt to EBITDA declined to the 5x area, S&P would
consider an upgrade of the company.  The outlook is stable.

At the same time, S&P raised the senior secured debt ratings to
'B+' (the same as the corporate credit rating) from 'B'.  The '3'
recovery rating on the debt remains unchanged, indicating S&P's
expectations that the lenders would receive meaningful (50%-70%)
recovery in the event of a payment default.  S&P also raised the
senior unsecured debt and subordinated debt ratings to 'B-' (two
notches below the corporate credit rating) from 'CCC+' and the '6'
recovery rating remains unchanged.  The '6' recovery rating
indicates S&P's expectations that the noteholders would receive
negligible (0%-10%) recovery in the event of a payment default.

"The ratings on GNC reflect its continued good operating
performance and related improvement in credit protection measures,
including total debt to EBITDA of 5.1x as of June 30, 2010," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Jayne Ross, "despite a weak
economy and a fragile retail environment."  It is S&P's opinion
that the financial risk profile is "aggressive," reflecting GNC's
highly leveraged capital structure and credit metrics that are
appropriate for the rating.  In S&P's view, the company's business
risk profile is "weak," reflecting GNC's participation in the
highly competitive and fragmented nutritional supplement specialty
retail sector.  A further upgrade is limited until S&P has a
better understanding of GNC's financial policies and anticipated
use of its cash balances, which were about $119 million at
June 30, 2010.


GENOIL INC: Incurs C$1.26 Million Net Loss in June 30 Quarter
-------------------------------------------------------------
Genoil Inc. incurred a net loss of C$1.26 million for the 2010

date and has funded its near term operations by way of capital
stock private placements and short-term loans.

As at June 30, 2010, the Company had incurred accumulated losses
of $71.15 million (December 31, 2009 - $68.04 million) since
inception.  In the Notes to the consolidated financial statements
for the 2010 second quarter, the Company discloses that its
ability to continue as a going concern is in substantial doubt and
is dependent on achieving profitable operations, commercializing
its upgrader technology, and obtaining the necessary financing in
order to develop this technology further.

"The Company is not expected to be profitable during the ensuing
twelve months and therefore must rely on securing additional funds
from either issuance of debt or equity financing for cash
consideration."

GSC GROUP: Files for Bankruptcy Protection in New York
------------------------------------------------------
GSC Group Inc. filed for Chapter 11 in Manhattan on August 31
(Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 10-14653), estimating assets of
$1 million to $10 million and debts of $100 million to
$500 million.

Based in a Florham Park, New Jersey, GSC Group Inc. is an
investment firm specializing in high-yield, high-risk debt.  GSC,
founded in 1999 by former Goldman Sachs Group Inc. partner Alfred
Eckert, manages debt pools known as collateralized loan
obligations, and owns portfolio companies.

David McLaughlin at Bloomberg News reports that GSC Group Inc. has
plans to sell its assets.  Peter R. Frank, a managing director,
said in an interview with Bloomberg that GSC will sell its assets
as part of a bankruptcy auction.

Mr. Frank blamed GSC's bankruptcy on the poor performance of the
CLOs and the inability to sell companies.  GSC defaulted on more
than $200 million in senior secured debt.

"It was impossible to sell anything in late '08 and early '09,"
Mr. Frank said.  The firm has about $9 billion in assets under
management, he said.

According to the Bloomberg report, Mr. Frank said GSC is providing
information to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for the
regulator's investigation into asset-backed security transactions.
He said GSC isn't a target of the investigation.

HARRISBURG, PA: Won't Make $3.29MM Bond Payment Due in 2 Weeks
--------------------------------------------------------------
Dow Jones Newswires' Romy Varghese reports the city of Harrisburg,
Pennsylvania, said it will skip a $3.29 million municipal-bond
payment due in two weeks, marking the second-largest general-
obligation municipal-bond default this year.

Dow Jones says the city's inability to make the payment, which is
expected to be covered by its bond insurer, may feed worries about
parts of the $2.8 trillion municipal-bond market, particularly
bonds issued by smaller entities that may have fewer resources
than states or larger governments.

According to Dow Jones, Ambac Assurance has insured two general-
obligation bond series of 1997 that Harrisburg said this week it
would default on.  Those securities have a face value of $51.5
million and mature in 2022.  Ambac officials didn't return calls
for comment, Dow Jones says.

Dow Jones relates the city's interim chief of staff and business
administrator, Robert Kroboth, broke the news of the default in a
letter dated Aug. 30 to the paying agent, BNY Mellon.
"Unfortunately," he wrote, "the City's current financial situation
precludes us from making any transfer to fund for these debt
service payments at this time."

According to Dow Jones, Harrisburg mayor Linda Thompson recently
picked a financial adviser to help the city repair its finances.
But its contract has yet to be finalized, said her spokesman Chuck
Ardo, and the team isn't being paid as it does "outreach."

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on August 19,
Harrisburg hired Scott Balice Strategies to help plot a financial
recovery plan.

                        Incinerator Project

Dow Jones relates that Harrisburg's default is a sign its
financial problems are growing beyond a failed incinerator project
that led some city officials earlier this year to raise the idea
of filing for a rare municipal bankruptcy.  Dow Jones notes the
city hasn't formally pursued that option, and Gov. Ed Rendell, a
Democrat, has publicly discouraged the idea.  But Harrisburg
officials haven't budgeted $68 million in payments due later this
year for the $288 million debt on the incinerator project.  They
did include payments for the general-obligation debt this year,
but still fell short.  In a report as of June 30, Harrisburg
officials projected a $4.3 million general-fund deficit at the end
of the year.

A spokesman for the mayor, speaking about the city's fiscal
situation, said the city is "working feverishly to address the
issue, and hopefully it will find a way to meet that challenge."

The incinerator is owned by a municipal entity, the Harrisburg
Authority, that is separate from the city, but the city is the
first guarantor of the debt.  Dow Jones relates this year's
incinerator payments have been covered by reserves; by Dauphin
County, which is the guarantor behind the city on almost half of
the debt; and by bond insurer Assured Guaranty Municipal, a unit
of Assured Guaranty Ltd. that has guaranteed $196 million of the
debt.

                       About Harrisburg, PA

The city of Harrisburg is coping with debt related to a failed
revamp of an incinerator.  The outstanding principal on the
Incinerator debt is $288 million.  Total principal and interest on
this debt would amount to approximately $458 million.  Debt
service payments on the total incinerator debt are $20 million per
year.  Of this total, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, is responsible
for roughly $10 million and Harrisburg is responsible for the
other $10 million.   The city is guarantor on 100% of the
$288 million Incinerator debt.

INNATECH LLC: Court Decides Today on Case Dismissal or Conversion
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Thomas J. Tucker of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Eastern District of Michigan entered an order directing Innatech
LLC to appear today, September 1, 2010, at 11:00 a.m., and show
cause why its Chapter 11 case must not be dismissed or converted.

netDockets reports that Judge Tucker's order is based upon
Innatech's failure to comply with deadlines set forth in an
April 29, 2010 court order.  That earlier order required Innatech
to file its plan and disclosure statement by August 19 or, if it
was not going to be able to meet that deadline, to seek an
extension of that deadline by filing a motion to that effect no
later than July 20, the report relates.

The Debtor has not filed a plan and a disclosure statement, which
was due August 19, nor has Debtor filed a motion to extend the
August 19 deadline.

However, according to netDockets, on August 27, Innatech did file
a motion seeking a continuance of the September 1 hearing.
Innatech says a delay of the hearing to September 15 will not
prejudice creditors, as no additional administrative claims will
accrue.

JAPAN AIRLINES: Files Turnaround Plan, Sees Bigger Work Force Cut
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Japan Airlines Corp. filed with the Tokyo District Court, Civil
Department No. 8, a plan outlining its strategy to exit from
bankruptcy.

The turnaround plan, filed August 31, is an aggressive
restructuring plan that speeds up a major cut in its work force
and slashes unprofitable routes, Yoshio Takahashi at The Wall
Street Journal reported.  The plan was filed seven months after
JAL filed for Japan's biggest non-financial bankruptcy protection
in January this year.  The plan, according to the Journal, is
"tougher" than the turnaround plan JAL submitted when it sought
bankruptcy protection.

The outline of JAL's original plan was to seek a debt waiver
amounting to JPY730 billion while its state-back restructuring
promoter agreed to put up JPY300 billion to turn round the
airline's negative net worth of JPY870 billion.  The original plan
also forecasted a fiscal year 2010 loss of JPY33.7 billion and an
operating profit of JPY49.7 billion for the fiscal year through
2012, according to Dow Jones.

In the current plan, JAL intends to refinance its current debt
load of about JPY300 billion by the end of March 2011, the Journal
said citing a person familiar with the matter, ensuring months of
protracted negotiations with its main lenders in months to come.
In June, people familiar with the JAL bankruptcy told Dow Jones
that the airline will probably seek JPY100 billion, or roughly
US$1.1 billion, more in financial assistance.

JAL's operating profit is expected to improve to JPY117.5 billion
in the fiscal year through March 2013 from an operating loss of
JPY133.7 billion in the last fiscal year ended March 2010, the
Journal related.  However, its revenue is projected to decline 15%
to JPY1.273 trillion in the fiscal year to March 2013 from
JPY1.495 trillion in the last fiscal year, as it will reduce
flight services.

The Enterprise Turnaround Initiative Corp., which supports
JAL's restructuring, will inject JPY350 billion into JAL's
international flight service unit, larger than its earlier plan
of JPY300 billion, the Journal said.  JAL, the newspaper added,
will ask for a debt waiver of JPY521.5 billion from its lenders.

The Journal noted that the new plan was short on details about how
JAL would increase its revenue in the coming years -- a crucial
factor amid increased competition from low-cost carriers and other
international airlines as both Narita International Airport and
Haneda Airport, the main gateways into Tokyo, expand their
capacity.  The former flag carrier, the Journal related, said it
was considering launching a low-cost airline subsidiary, but
declined to elaborate.

Under the latest plan, JAL aims to cut its work force by about
16,000 staff to about 32,600 by March 31, 2011.  In the initial
plan submitted in January, JAL aimed to cut 15,600 jobs over three
years.

In the new plan, JAL intends to scrap a combined 49 unprofitable
international and domestic routes and flights by the end of March
2013, which, according to the Journal, is a more drastic cut than
the reduction of 31 routes and flights reduction targeted in the
same time frame under its initial plan.

"This is the start of JAL's restructuring," the Journal quoted
Kazuo Inamori, JAL chairman, as saying at a news conference.  "We
will work [on restructuring] hard so that we can post better
numbers than we are targeting."

              Poor Management Led to JAL Bankruptcy

Mismanagement and a lack of risk awareness caused JAL to file for
bankruptcy protection in January, Kyodo News said on August 18
citing a draft report by a panel studying JAL's management
practices says.  The five-member panel preparing the report,
however, said it is difficult to place criminal or civil liability
on former heads of the carrier, sources said.  The report was to
be submitted soon to JAL's bankruptcy administrator.

The panel said management failed to detect that the airline was in
financial crisis because of the firm's compartmentalized
administrative structure in terms of corporate planning, sales and
marketing, and other operations, Kyodo News said, further citing
sources.

According to Kyodo News, JAL set up the compliance investigation
panel March 2 made up of third-party members who were tasked with
examining past management practices.  The panel, Kyodo News
related, said JAL was tardy in implementing massive restructuring
efforts to improve its balance sheet when it was seeing a decline
in passengers due to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in the
United States and then the epidemic of severe acute respiratory
syndrome, or SARS.

The panel plans to report that JAL needs to change its corporate
culture and no longer act with the complacency that it was the
country's flag carrier, Kyodo News said.

JAL commenced a corporate reorganization process in the Tokyo
District Court on January 19, 2010, under the Corporation
Reorganization Act of Japan.  In connection with the commencement
of the Japan proceeding, the Tokyo District Court appointed Eiji
Katayama of the Abe, Ikubo & Katayama law firm and the government-
backed Enterprise Turnaround Initiative Corporation of Japan as
JAL's trustees.

JAL filed parallel proceedings on the same day in the United
States under Chapter 15 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.  Mr. Katayama
was appointed foreign representative.  Ryan Blaine Bennett, Esq.,
and James H.M. Sprayregen, P.C., Esq., at Kirkland & Ellis LLP, in
New York, serve as counsel to the Foreign Representative.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Gets Approval of TS Boston Release Agreement
-------------------------------------------------------------
Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. and its affiliate, Lehman
Commercial Paper Inc., received the U.S. Bankruptcy Court's
permission to enter into a Release and Termination of Loan
Agreement and Other Documents with TS Boston Core Holdings, L.P.;
125 High Junior Mezz, L.P.; One Federal Intermediate Mezz, L.P.;
One Federal Junior Mezz, L.P.; and other borrower affiliates.

In June 2006, LBHI, as a lender, made an acquisition loan of
$373,500,000 to certain of the One Fed Entities that was
collateralized by an office building known as One Federal Plaza
in downtown Boston, Massachusetts.  The Acquisition Loan was
subsequently partitioned into a $262,000,000 securitized
mortgage, a $49,000,000 senior mezzanine loan, a $62,500,000
intermediate mezzanine loan -- Mezz B Loan, and a $25,000,000
unfunded junior mezzanine loan -- Junior Mezz Loan.  The Mezz B
Loan was then subdivided into two parts, a $35,000,000 senior
note -- Mezz B Senior Note, and a $27,500,000 junior note -- Mezz
B Junior Note.  In May 2010, the Mezz B Senior Note was sold to a
third party entity at a discount to its par value, while LCPI
remains the lender of record with respect to the Mezz B Junior
Note and, is the controlling lender with respect to the Mezz B
Loan.

In July 2006, LBHI, as a lender, made a $365,000,000 mortgage
loan, a $82,000,000 mezzanine A loan, a $82,000,000 mezzanine B
loan, and a $30,000,000 unfunded mezzanine C loan -- the "125
Mezz C Loan", to certain special purpose entities.  Each loan was
secured by a property located at 125 High Street in downtown
Boston, Massachusetts.  Subsequently, LBHI transferred its
interest in those loans, except its interest with respect to the
125 Mezz C Loan.

Moreover, the Restructured Asset Securities with Enhanced Returns
Series 2007-A Trust and 2007-7-MM Trust, special purpose
securitization vehicles, were established to issue securities to
finance a portfolio of corporate loans, mortgage loans and equity
interests.  While LCPI remains the lender of record with respect
to the Mezz B Junior Note, it purportedly sold a 100%
participation interest in it to RACERS and, thus, LCPI's interest
in the Mezz B Junior Note may be legally or beneficially under
the purported indirect control of RACERS.

Pursuant to the Court's order authorizing a collateral
disposition agreement and certain related transactions, LBHI is
the current holder of all the RACERS securities, and believes
that it has the power to make decisions with respect to the
assets, including the release of any collateral securing an
obligation in which RACERS has a purported interest.

                      Release Agreement

Beginning in June 2010, TS Boston Core approached LBHI and LCPI
seeking to purchase LCPI's interest in the Mezz B Junior Note.
Following arm's-length and good faith negotiations, TS Boston,
the Borrowers, other Borrower Affiliates, LBHI, and LCPI entered
into the Release Agreement.

The salient terms of the Release Agreement are:

  (1) LBHI and LCPI will, among others, release all of their
      interest in the collateral securing the Mezz B Junior
      Loan, the Junior Mezz Loan, and the 125 Mezz C Loan in
      exchange for:

        (i) a cash payment that is less than the balance owed on
            the loan, or the "Payoff Amount;"

       (ii) a release of any and all claims held by the
            Borrowers and other Borrower Affiliates, including
            claims relating to the unfunded Junior Mezz and 125
            Mezz C Loans; and

      (iii) withdrawal of unliquidated Claim Nos. 27387 and
            27389 filed by 125 High Junior Mezz, L.P. and One
            Federal Junior Mezz, L.P.

  (2) LCPI will provide a limited indemnity solely for the
      purposes of defending and holding harmless the Borrower
      Affiliates from and against any and all loss, liabilities,
      damages, claims, costs and expenses arising out of a claim
      made by RACERS or any party with an interest in RACERS,
      (i) asserting that a party holds or controls a direct or
      indirect legal or beneficial interest in the Mezz B Junior
      Note, (ii) challenging the authority or right of LCPI to
      enter into the Release Agreement, perform any of its
      obligations, or otherwise consummate the transactions
      contemplated, or (iii) otherwise related to the Mezz B
      Junior Note, this Release or the transactions
      contemplated.

  (3) The limited indemnity will not be effective unless all of
      the transactions contemplated by the Release Agreement
      occur on or before the Closing Date.

LBHI and LCPI relate that the Release Agreement contains a Payoff
Amount, which represents commercially sensitive information that
should be protected pursuant to Section 107(b) of the Bankruptcy
Code, and Rule 9018 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure.
The Debtors thus filed with the Court a redacted version of the
Release Agreement, available for free at:

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

Alfredo R. Perez, Esq., at Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP, in
Houston, Texas, stresses that the Debtors believe that near-term
rollover of the lessees at One Fed may, potentially, create debt
service shortfalls that may require LCPI to either (i) purchase
the Mezz B Senior Note, or (ii) risk losing its status as
controlling lender.  A loss in LCPI's status may lead to a
foreclosure the Mezz B Junior Note and a loss of LCPI's interest
in One Fed, he points out.  Thus, the entry into the Release
Agreement presents a better alternative and is in the best
interests of LBHI and LCPI because it provides them, among
others, the Payoff Amount for the Mezz B Junior Note, a release
from funding approximately $55 million in unfunded loans, and a
withdrawal of the Proofs of Claim, he maintains.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Three Insurers to Pay Litigation Costs
-------------------------------------------------------
Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. and its affiliated debtors won a
court order authorizing three insurance firms to pay the legal
fees of former top executives and employees.

The insurance policies provided by Continental Casualty Company,
Certain Underwriters at Lloyd's London and London Market Company,
and U.S. Specialty Insurance Company cover the defense costs for
LBHI's former executives and employees who are facing a number of
lawsuits, which stemmed from the bankruptcy of the company.

Continental Casualty's and Lloyd's insurance policies provide
$10 million each while that of U.S. Specialty provides up to
$15 million.

Richard Krasnow, Esq., at Weil Gotshal & Manges LLP, in New York,
says the proposed payment would ensure the personnel's continued
access to additional funding in case the $15 million provided by
another insurer, Federal Insurance Company (Chubb) is exhausted.

Chubb provides $15 million in coverage but it is expected to be
exhausted in the near future given the state of the lawsuits, Mr.
Krasnow tells the Court.  Meanwhile, the $20 million in coverage
provided by LBHI's primary insurer, XL Specialty Insurance
Company, had already been used, he says.

Richard Fuld, former chief executive, and second-in-command Joe
Gregory, are among those named as defendants in securities
lawsuits currently pending in federal court in Manhattan.  The
Justice Department and the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission have also launched formal investigations into LBHI's
bankruptcy filing, according to a July 29 report by The Wall
Street Journal.

Charlie Gasparino of Fox Business Network reported last month
that the SEC was focusing its investigation on the actions and
statements of Erin Callan, former chief financial officer.  Mr.
Gasparino quoted sources saying the agency is looking at

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Wins Approval to Finance Heritage Project
----------------------------------------------------------
Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. received court approval to amend
what it calls a participation agreement so that it could provide
financing for the Heritage Fields Project, a 3,723-acre
masterplan development in California owned by Heritage Fields El
Toro LLC.

The proposed amendment would allow LBHI to buy up to $32 million
of participation interest in a loan that El Toro LLC provided to
Heritage in 2007.  Under the current participation agreement with
El Toro, LBHI is only allowed to purchase up to $24.5 million.

The $32 million will be used to cover the costs of the Heritage
Fields project, which must be paid prior to court approval of
LBHI's settlement deal with Heritage, according to Alfredo Perez,
Esq., at Weil Gotshal & Manges LLP, in Houston, Texas.

LBHI earlier filed a motion to approve the settlement deal, under
which it will receive about $125 million from Heritage as payment
for assigning its debt interest in the project to State Street
Bank and Trust Company.  If the settlement is approved, the
participation interests will be repaid.

Mr. Perez says they chose to structure the funding of the
project's costs through the proposed buyout because it provides
LBHI and its creditors with the most security.

"As a participation in El Toro's loan, the additional
participation interests are secured by a first priority security
interest in the project," he says, adding that they will be paid
prior to substantially any other interest in the Heritage Fields
project.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Wins Nod to Amend RACERS Transaction
-----------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York
issued an order authorizing Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. to
amend the agreements related to the Restructured Asset Securities
with Enhanced Returns Series 2007-7-MM Trust.

In an eight-page order, Judge James Peck gave LBHI the go signal
to amend the agreements, allowing the company or its designee to
replace U.S. Bank N.A. as trustee of the RACERS MM Trust and the
RACERS A Trust.

Judge Peck also authorized the termination of the participation
agreement and the security and control agreement.  Lehman
Commercial Paper Inc. will be deemed to be the owner of the real
estate loans and other illiquid assets being financed by the
trusts, the bankruptcy judge ruled.

anyone from asserting or bringing claim against U.S. Bank, and
requires LBHI to pay the fees and expenses of the bank for its
services as former trustee.  In return, U.S. Bank is required to
withdraw its prior objection.

The court order does not authorize the extension of the bar date
or permit the filing of any additional proofs of claim against
LBHI and its affiliated debtors.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Ex-CEO Fuld to Appear Before Fin'l Crisis Panel
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Wall Street Journal's John D. McKinnon reports that the
Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission wraps up its Washington
hearing schedule on Wednesday and Thursday, when it will take a
look at how the government decided which financial institutions
would live during the 2008 meltdown, and which ones would die.
The Journal says the commission is focusing on Lehman Brothers,
which sunk into bankruptcy in 2008, and Wachovia Corp., which bank
regulators were willing to help out.  It eventually survived the
turmoil of 2008.

According to the Journal, Wednesday's witnesses will include
Robert Steel, a former Wachovia CEO and former top Treasury
official, and Richard Fuld, former Lehman CEO.  On Thursday, the
panel will hear testimony from Federal Reserve Chairman Ben
Bernanke, and Sheila Bair, the chairman of the Federal Deposit
Insurance Corp.

The FCIC was formed by Congress last year to examine the causes of
the financial crisis.  It's expected to complete its report in
December.  While its Washington hearings are wrapping up, it also
plans a series of field hearings in California, Nevada and
Florida.

Bank and sale of its assets by the FDIC, nor is any recovery
expected.  Since the closing of the Bank, the principal assets of
the Company are its office condominium, a participation in a loan
receivable, and cash.

METROFINANCIERA SA: Seeks Bankruptcy Protection in U.S.
-------------------------------------------------------
Metrofinanciera, S.A.P.I. de C.V., Sociedad Financiera
de Objeto Multiple, E.N.R.. filed a Chapter 15 petition in Corpus
Christi, Texas on August 30 (Bankr. S.D. Tex. Case No. 10-20666).
The Debtor estimated assets and debts of $500 million to $1
billion in the Chapter 15 petition.  Alan S. Gover, Esq., at White
& Case LLP, in New York, represents the Chapter 15 debtor.

Metrofinanciera SA de CV sought bankruptcy protection in the U.S.
so it can wrap up its reorganization proceedings in Mexico, Dawn
McCarty and David McLaughlin at Bloomberg News report.  The
Company said it has negotiated a debt restructuring deal with
creditors and filed for bankruptcy in the U.S. to complete the
plan.

According to the report, without court protection in the U.S., the
Company said it faces "a substantial risk" that holders of
US$100 million in notes issued in 2006 could sue the Company in
New York.  "Such actions will seriously disturb Metrofinanciera's
near-complete reorganization and force Metrofinanciera to litigate
such actions at great cost," the company said in court papers, the
report relates.

At a hearing, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Richard Schmidt granted the
company's request for an order blocking collection actions by
creditors.  Judge Schmidt scheduled a September 24 hearing to
consider Metrofinanciera's Chapter 15 petition, the report adds.

                        Mexico Proceedings

Metrofinanciera filed for bankruptcy in Mexico last year after
negotiating a restructuring with creditors.  It was the first
prepackaged bankruptcy in Mexican history.  The Plan was approved
by a Mexican court in June.

Metrofinanciera, Bloomberg News notes, needs approval of the
Chapter 15 petition in order to make its bankruptcy plan effective
in the U.S. and make distributions to the noteholders under the
Plan.  The company's only U.S. creditors are holders of the notes,
according to court documents, the report relates.

NORTEL NETWORKS: Ex-Employees to File Claims if Benefits Ended
--------------------------------------------------------------
Former employees of Nortel Networks Inc. asked the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York to allow
retirees to file claims in case the company terminates their
benefits.

In letters to Judge Kevin Gross, the former employees said the
termination of the benefits is unfair and unjust.  "Once Nortel
terminates these benefits, most retirees will have to qualify for
benefits individually and such benefits could be prohibitively
expensive," they said.

The former employees also asked the Court to authorize the
appointment of a committee to protect retirees and their
beneficiaries.

NNI filed a motion two months ago to terminate three of their
benefit plans for retirees and employees with long-term
disability.  The benefit plans include NNI's medical and life
insurance plans for retirees.  About 4,019 individuals are
participants under the plans, consisting of 2,592 retirees.

NNI's move, however, drew flak from various groups, including the
U.S. Trustee who demanded that the company provide evidence at
trial to support its decision to terminate the benefit plans.

The U.S. Trustee questioned in particular NNI's assertion that it
cannot afford $2 million per month for the cost of the benefit
plans given the fact that it previously obtained Court approval
to pay $50 million to members of its senior management.

The Benefits Termination Motion largely drew opposition from
retirees and employees with long-term disability who flooded the
Court with letters and responses disapproving the proposed
termination.

NNI eventually withdrew its Motion but left open the possibility
that it could still modify or end those benefits in the future.

             Canada-based Nortel Retirees Stand to
                   Lose One Third of Pension

Former employees of Nortel Networks Corp. in Canada stand to lose
one third of their monthly pension, according to an August 24,
2010 report by Toronto Sun.

NNC is set to liquidate its pension accounts at the end of next
month and the plan is only about 64% funded.  When NNC filed for
creditor protection early last year, its pension fund deficit was
estimated to be between $2.5 billion to $2.8 billion.

Ken Lyons, the Quebec representative of the Nortel Retirees' and
Former Employees' Protection Committee, said that about 12,000
former employees in Alberta, Quebec, and Nova Scotia could find
themselves facing poverty, according to the Toronto Sun.  "There
are people who will have to go on social assistance," the news
source quoted Mr. Lyons as saying.

The size of Canada's annuity market, according to the report,
poses a problem for Nortel pensions.  It is too small to provide
a healthy return on a one-time dump of the company's pension
accounts as the market can only absorb $500 million a year, the
report notes.

Nevertheless, the Toronto Sun notes, the Ontario government
earlier guaranteed the first $1,000 of monthly payouts for each
of the 11,000 employees who worked in that province.

Meanwhile, Quebec said it is ready to offer partial pension
guarantees for Nortel workers in that province and that it would
take over the pensions of 3,000 current and former workers for a
period of five years and guarantee existing payments, Toronto Sun
relates.

NORTEL NETWORKS: Proposes Sept. 24 Auction for Switch Business
--------------------------------------------------------------
Nortel Networks Corporation related on August 27, 2010, that it,
its principal operating subsidiary Nortel Networks Limited (NNL),
and certain of its other subsidiaries, including Nortel Networks
Inc. and Nortel Networks UK Limited (in administration), have
entered into two sale agreement for a purchase price of
US$39 million in cash:

  (1) A "stalking horse" asset sale agreement with PSP Holding
      LLC (PSP), a special purpose entity to be fully funded at
      closing by Marlin Equity Partners (Marlin) and Samnite
      Technologies Inc., a communications technology company
      based in Ottawa, for the sale of substantially all of the
      assets of Nortel's North America, Caribbean and Latin
      America (CALA) and Asia Multi Service Switch (MSS)
      business; and

  (2) An asset sale agreement with Marlin for the sale of
      substantially all of the assets of the Europe, Middle East
      and Africa (EMEA) portion of its MSS business

The Sale Agreements include the planned sale of substantially all
assets of the MSS business globally, including the associated
Data Packet Network and Shasta product groups.  These agreements
also include certain intellectual property related to the MSS
business.

Nortel's MSS Business provides data networking infrastructure
solutions to telecom service providers and large enterprise
customers throughout the world.  These solutions allow customers
to integrate a variety of data, voice and video applications onto
a single network and connect users in multiple locations
securely, efficiently and seamlessly over a wide area network.

located on every continent and in over 100 countries.  There are
currently 250 employees employed by the MSS Business.  They are
located in many countries, with the principal locations being
Australia, Canada, China, Spain and the United Kingdom.

Currently, subject to the terms of the Sale Agreements as well as
any changes that may occur through the stalking horse and sale
process, substantially all MSS employees would have the
opportunity to continue employment with PSP.  This includes the
employees assigned to the MSS business in certain EMEA
jurisdictions who would transfer to PSP by operation of law.

Commenting on the announcement, John Luszczek, General Manager of
Nortel's MSS business said: "Today's announcement is welcome news
to all MSS customers, suppliers, partners and employees. The
proposed transaction represents a clear and positive step forward
and is a testament of our continued commitment to innovation and
customer support that resulted in the creation of the business
value evident by today's announcement.  Throughout this process we
will remain focused on providing our customers with the highest
level of service, support and responsiveness that they have come
to expect."

In the 1990's, Nortel built some of the largest carrier and
enterprise data networks in the world, leading to the
establishment of this market segment category and Nortel MSS
becoming recognized as an industry leader.

                      Details of Sale Process

Nortel filed the stalking horse asset sale agreement with the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware along with a
motion seeking the establishment of bidding procedures for an
auction that allows other qualified bidders to submit higher or
otherwise better offers, as required under Section 363 of the
U.S. Bankruptcy Code, on August 27, 2010.

A similar motion for the approval of the bidding procedures will
be filed with the Ontario Superior Court of Justice.  Following
completion of the bidding process, final approval of the U.S. and
Canadian courts will be required.

To facilitate and effectuate the sale of the Assets, Nortel seeks
authority to assume and assign to the Successful Bidder certain
prepetition executory contracts related to the Assets.

Moreover, Nortel seeks to file with the Bankruptcy Court
disclosure schedules and all exhibits and schedules to the
Stalking Horse Agreement as well as any subsequent sale agreement
with the Stalking Horse Purchaser or any Successful Bidder under
seal.  The Company also seeks to file under seal the lists of
Customer Contracts to be assumed and assigned in relation to the
proposed sale transaction.

In relation to the EMEA entities to which they are appointed, the
UK Joint Administrators have the authority, without further court
approval, to enter into the EMEA asset sale agreement on behalf
of those relevant Nortel entities.  In some EMEA jurisdictions,
this transaction is subject to information and consultation with
employee representatives and/or employees.

In addition to the processes and approvals outlined, consummation
of the transaction is subject to the satisfaction of regulatory
and other conditions and the receipt of various approvals.  The
agreements are also subject to certain working capital and other
purchase price adjustments.

Nortel's MSS Business are available for free at:

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

As previously announced, Nortel does not expect that the
Company's common shareholders or the NNL preferred shareholders
will receive any value from the creditor protection proceedings
and expects that the proceedings will result in the cancellation
of these equity interests.

              Bidding Procedures, Bid Protection

Each person who wishes to participate in the bidding process must
deliver to the Notice Parties a statement of its bona fide
interest in purchasing the Assets, a related confidentiality
agreement, and financial statements to support its ability to

As previously announced, beginning with January 14, 2009 (being
the date that Nortel commenced its creditor protection
proceedings), Nortel accounted for the results of its Europe,
Middle East and Africa (EMEA) Subsidiaries by the equity method
of accounting in its consolidated results.  As of May 31, 2010,
Nortel determined that it no longer had significant influence
over the operating and financial policies of the EMEA
Subsidiaries primarily due to the significance of the completed
business divestitures.  As a result, Nortel accounted for the
EMEA Subsidiaries as an investment using the cost method as of
June 1, 2010.  The fair value of the EMEA Subsidiaries investment
was determined to be nil, resulting in a charge in the second
quarter of approximately $760 million due the recognition in
income of pension charges previously deferred in shareholders'
equity and of intercompany payables offset by the write-off of
the net liabilities of the EMEA Subsidiaries.  A related charge
of approximately $650 million was recorded to reflect Nortel's
guarantees of the U.K. pension funding.  Commencing June 1, 2010,
the financial results of the EMEA Subsidiaries are no longer
included in Nortel's financial results.

As a result of the divestitures of: (1) the Code Division
Multiple Access (CDMA)/LTE Access and Enterprise Solutions (ES)
businesses in the fourth quarter of 2009; (2) the Optical
Networking and Carrier Ethernet, and Global System for Mobile
communications (GSM)/GSM for Railways (GSM-R) businesses in the
first quarter of 2010; and (3) the Carrier VoIP and Application
Solutions (CVAS) business in the second quarter of 2010, only the
residual contracts related to those businesses were included in
the respective reportable segments.  The Metro Ethernet Networks
(MEN) reportable segment also continued to include the
multiservice switching products and related services (MSS)
business.

The ES and LGN businesses were presented as Discontinued
Operations while the other residual businesses were presented as
Continuing Operations.  Except in the Segment Revenues section,
the discussion below relates to Results from Continuing
Operations under U.S. GAAP and excludes the financial results of
the EMEA Subsidiaries.  Notwithstanding the change in accounting
for the EMEA Subsidiaries as an investment using the cost method,
Nortel continues to manage its business segments globally.  The
financial information in the Segment Revenues section includes
the results of the EMEA Subsidiaries for the entire second
quarter within each segment, but does not include the results of
discontinued operations.  Therefore, in order to reconcile the
financial information for the business segments discussed below
to Nortel's consolidated financial information, the net financial
results of the EMEA Subsidiaries must be removed.

                       Financial Summary

Nortel's overall financial performance in the second quarter of
2010 was impacted by the sale of the businesses.

    * Revenues in the second quarter of $145 million, with
      declines year over year in all segments and in all
      regions.  These revenues excluded second quarter revenues
      related to the EMEA Subsidiaries of $65 million up to
      May 31, 2010, and $93 million related to discontinued
      operations.

    * Gross margin of 4.1 percent in the second quarter, a
      decrease of 42.4 percentage points from the year ago
      quarter.

    * SG&A expense in the second quarter of $135 million, flat
      from the year ago quarter. SG&A expense in the second
      quarter excluded $45 million up to May 31, 2010 related to
      the EMEA Subsidiaries.

    * R&D expense in the second quarter of $21 million, a
      decrease of 88.3 percent from the year ago quarter.  R&D
      expense in the second quarter excluded $1 million up to
      May 31, 2010, related to the EMEA Subsidiaries.

    * Consolidated cash balance as of June 30, 2010, was
      $1.7 billion, compared to $1.9 billion at March 31, 2010.
      Consolidated cash balance excluded the EMEA Subsidiaries
      cash of $829 million no longer included in Nortel's
      consolidated balance sheet as of May 31, 2010.

                       Segment Revenues

Segment revenues from continuing operations were $237 million in
the second quarter of 2010 compared to $1.3 billion for the second
quarter of 2009, reflecting a reduction of 81.1 percent primarily
as a result of the business divestitures.

                                  Segment Revenues B/(W)
                                     Q2 2010     YoY
                                     -------    -----
   Wireless Networks                     $47     (94%)
   Carrier VoIP and Appl. Solutions       89     (45%)
   Metro Ethernet Networks                97     (71%)
   Other                                   4      33%
                                     -------    -----
   Total Segment Revenues
   from Continuing Operations           $237     (81%)

   Discontinued Operations               $95     (87%)

Discontinued operations revenues in the second quarter of 2010
were $95 million, a decrease of 87 percent compared with the year
ago quarter.  ES revenues were $7 million, a decrease of 99
percent as a result of the divestiture of the ES, NGS and
DiamondWare businesses in the fourth quarter of 2009.  LGN
revenues were $88 million, a decrease of 56 percent compared with
the year ago quarter mainly related to volumes related to its 3G
wireless products in the second quarter of 2009 not repeated to
the same extent in 2010.

In the third quarter of 2010, Nortel's reportable segments will
be: WN, consisting of residual CDMA and GSM/GSM-R contracts; MEN,
consisting of the MSS business and residual contracts not included
in the sale to Ciena; and CVAS, consisting of residual contracts
not included in the sale to GENBAND.

                         Gross Margin

Gross margin declined to 4.1 percent of revenues in the second
quarter of 2010 compared to 46.5 percent for the second quarter of
2009, primarily as a result of the business divestitures.  Gross
margin was also impacted by the ongoing costs related to delivery
of the transition services agreements, the recovery of which is
recorded in other operating income.

                      Operating Expenses

                            Operating Expenses B/(W)
                                Q2 2010     YoY
                                -------    -----
   SG&A                            $135       0%
   R&D                               21      88%
                                -------    -----
   Total Operating Expenses        $156      51%

A focus on reducing costs, and the business divestitures resulted
in lower operating expenses compared to the year ago quarter.
Operating expenses were $156 million in the second quarter of 2010
compared to $316 million for the second quarter of 2009. Operating
expenses were also impacted by a change in methodology resulting
in ceasing of the allocation of certain SG&A expenses related to
corporate overhead costs to R&D expense and cost of revenues.

SG&A expense was $135 million in the second quarter of 2010,
compared to $135 million for the second quarter of 2009.  SG&A
expense was flat primarily as a result of the change in allocation
methodology described above. SG&A expense in the second quarter
excluded $45 million of expense related to the EMEA Subsidiaries
(up to May 31, 2010).

R&D expense was $21 million in the second quarter of 2010,
compared to $181 million for the second quarter of 2009, which
reduction was a result of the reasons described above. R&D
expense in the second quarter excluded $1 million of expense
related to the EMEA Subsidiaries (up to May 31, 2010).

                           Net Loss

The Company reported a net loss in the second quarter of 2010 of
$1.5 billion compared to a net loss of $274 million in the second
quarter of 2009.

The net loss included reorganization costs of $1.4 billion,
interest expense of $75 million and other expense of $28 million,
partially offset by other operating income of $96 million
comprised primarily of billings under transition services
agreements, $41 million in income tax recovery and earnings from
discontinued operations of $35 million related primarily to a
gain on the divestiture of NNL's interest in LGN.  The
$1.4 billion in reorganization costs primarily related to the
impact of accounting for the EMEA Subsidiaries as an investment
using the cost method of $763 million, guarantees related to the
funding of the U.K. defined benefit pension plan of $634 million
and asset impairments of $113 million, partially offset by gains
on the divestiture of the CVAS business of $196 million.  Other
expense of $28 million was comprised primarily of a currency
exchange loss of $44 million partially offset by rental income of
$16 million.

The net loss in the second quarter of 2009 of $274 million
included a loss from discontinued operations of $119 million,
$167 million equity in net loss of the EMEA Subsidiaries, interest
expense of $74 million, and reorganization items of $58 million.

                              Cash

The consolidated cash balance as of June 30, 2010, was
$1.7 billion and restricted cash was $3.2 billion primarily
related to the business divestiture proceeds, compared to a
consolidated cash balance of $1.9 billion and restricted cash
of $2.7 billion primarily related to the divestiture proceeds
as of March 31, 2010.  The decrease in the consolidated cash
balance was primarily due to cash used in operating activities
of $110 million, cash used in financing activities of $78 million
primarily related to dividends paid by subsidiaries to non
controlling interests, cash used in investing activities of
$53 million, which included proceeds from sales of businesses
largely offset by proceeds from those sales recorded as
restricted cash, and a net unfavorable foreign exchange impact
of $14 million.  The consolidated cash balance excluded the EMEA
Subsidiaries' cash of $829 million no longer included in Nortel's
consolidated balance sheet as of
May 31, 2010.

As previously announced, Nortel does not expect that the Company's
common shareholders or the NNL preferred shareholders will receive
any value from the creditor protection proceedings and expects
that the proceedings will result in the cancellation of these
equity interests.

NYC OFF-TRACK: Workers' Union Willing to Negotiate
--------------------------------------------------
The Associated Press reports that Greg Rayburn, the president of
New York City Off-Track Betting Corp., told reporters Friday that
Tuesday -- August 31 -- was a critical deadline for the ailing
bookmaking agency's future, a claim dismissed by the agency's
major union, who said it would negotiate but wouldn't rush to meet
the timeline.

According to the AP, Mr. Rayburn said OTB needs a deal with its
unions representing 1,300 workers or it will void its labor
contracts.  The AP notes that Tuesday was the deadline for
employees to sign up for an early retirement incentive, which
could go a long way toward reducing personnel costs.  According to
the report, Mr. Rayburn said the reduction is necessary for OTB to
continue its operations under a new structure that relies more on
automated betting.

The AP relates that Local 2021 President Leonard Allen said the
Tuesday deadline doesn't seem critical because a half-dozen of his
members would qualify for the early retirement incentive.  Local
2021 of AFSCME District Council 37 represents 1,000 OTB workers.

"I can't embrace his plan A and will not embrace it under the
threat that if we don't embrace it, he will go to another plan,"
Mr. Allen said, according to the AP.  "I am willing to talk to
him.  I am willing to work things out with him.  But he can't tell
me to cut our own throat."

According to the AP, Mr. Rayburn said if his preferred plan that
he called "plan A" fails, OTB could has two options:

     -- One of them would be restructure the work force by cutting
        and reassigning without regard to the labor contracts.
        That could include laying off full- and part-time workers,
        but keeping per-diem workers who aren't paid benefits and
        who could be assigned without the same regard for union
        regulations.

     -- The other option would be liquidation.

His preferred option would shed 400 jobs, many through early
retirement incentives, and no longer provided about $32 million a
year to the industry compared to last year.

PTC ALLIANCE: Consummates Sale of All Assets to Black Diamond
-------------------------------------------------------------
PTC Alliance Corp. has consummated the sale of substantially all
of the company's assets to funds managed by Black Diamond Capital
Management L.L.C.

The company, now known as PTC Alliance Holdings Corp., will
continue to be managed by the same executive team, including
Chairman, President and CEO Peter Whiting.

"PTC Alliance Holdings now has a financing structure appropriate
for the kind of cyclical industry we are in, combined with a
proven team of employees that can manage through even the most
difficult of times," Whiting said.  "We've significantly reduced
our liabilities and our operating costs, will be debt free, and
are well positioned for future investment and growth.

"Our goal during this restructuring was to create a new,
revitalized entity with the resources to continue to provide the
highest quality products and services to our customers," Whiting
said.  "I am pleased to report we have, without question, achieved
that goal."

As previously announced, PTC Alliance and its U.S. subsidiaries
filed voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Code on October 1, 2009 in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the District of Delaware.

The company entered into an agreement to sell substantially all of
its assets to funds managed by Black Diamond Capital Management
L.L.C. following a court-authorized auction process to ensure it
was maximizing the value of the company and best-positioning it
for future success.  The funds managed by Black Diamond Capital
Management L.L.C. were selected as the winning bidders and the
sale was approved at a court hearing in April.

"Through the determination, talent, and commitment of our
employees, the company was able to operate business as usual
throughout this process and ensure our customers were properly
served and our business partners could depend on us," Whiting
said.  "Those commitments remain the bedrock of PTC Alliance
Holdings Corp."

REFCO INC: Court of Appeals Retains Ruling on Suit vs. Mayer Brown
------------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit has declined to
reconsider its recent decision affirming the dismissal of a
securities fraud action against the law firm of Mayer Brown LLP
and its alleged role in the collapse of Refco Inc., Orrick
Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP reports in its weekly auditor
bulletin.

Plaintiffs Pacific Investment Management Company LLC and RH
Capital Associates LLC alleged that Mayer Brown should be held
liable for securities fraud because it provided extensive
services to Refco and therefore it knew or should have known that
Refco had made false or misleading statements in its offering
memorandum and registration statements.

Judge Gerard Lynch of the U.S. District Court for the Southern
District of New York dismissed the plaintiffs' claim, and the
Second Circuit affirmed on the ground that secondary actors such
as Mayer Brown could be liable only for false statements that are
attributed to them at the time of dissemination.

The case is Pacific Investment Management Company LLC. v. Mayer
Brown, No. 09-1619-vc (2d Cir. July 26, 2010).

REFCO INC: Ex-CEO Sexton Forfeits $2MM+ to Settle Claims
--------------------------------------------------------
Preet Bharara, the United States Attorney for the Southern
District of New York, announced that William M. Sexton agreed to
forfeit a total of $2,050,000 to resolve civil forfeiture claims
alleging that he received funds traceable to proceeds of
securities fraud, wire fraud, bank fraud, and money laundering at
the defunct financial services company Refco.

As alleged in the Complaint filed in Manhattan federal court [on
August 19, 2010]:

    Phillip R. Bennett, Tone N. Grant, Santo C. Maggio, Robert C
    Trosten, and others were involved in hiding Refco
    customer trading losses, concealing the firm's proprietary
    trading activities, fraudulently shifting expenses off the
    books of Refco, and artificially padding Refco's revenues in
    order to fraudulently achieve the 2004 leveraged buyout
    ("LBO") of Refco and the 2005 initial public offering
    ("IPO") of Refco's stock.

    Since the mid-1990s, Refco sustained hundreds of
    millions of dollars of losses through, among other things,
    its customers' trading.  In order to hide the losses,
    Mr. Bennett and others transferred many of the losses to
    appear as a debt owed to Refco by Refco Group Holdings, Inc.
    ("RGHI") -- the holding company that controlled Refco and
    was controlled by Messrs. Bennett, Grant, and, at certain
    times, Thomas Dittmer.

    From 1999 through 2005, Mr. Bennett and others repeatedly
    hid the RGHI receivable from, among others, Refco's
    auditors, by temporarily paying down the receivable from
    RGHI over Refco's fiscal year-end (and, after February 2004,
    Refco's quarter-ends) and replacing it with a receivable
    from one or more other entities not related to RGHI.  Thus,
    at every fiscal year-end and, later, at every fiscal
    quarter-end, Mr. Bennett and others directed transactions
    that turned the debt owed to Refco from RGHI into a debt
    owed to Refco by a Refco customer.  Shortly after each
    fiscal year-end or quarter-end, these transactions were
    unwound, returning the debt to RGHI.

    Mr. Sexton, 45, of Golden's Bridge, New York, served as
    Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of a
    Refco subsidiary from July 2001 until August 2004.  Mr.
    Sexton served as Executive Vice President and Chief
    Operating Officer of Refco beginning in August 2004.

    In early August 2004, Thomas H. Lee Partners, L.P.,
    purchased a majority interest in Refco for approximately
    $1.9 billion through an LBO. In connection with that
    transaction, Refco sold approximately $600 million of bonds
    to the public and borrowed approximately $800 million from a
    syndicate of banks.

    Proceeds of Refco's fraudulent LBO were distributed to
    Messrs. Bennett, Grant, Maggio, and Trosten, as well as to
    Mr. Sexton and certain other former Refco insiders.

    In August 2005, Refco conducted an IPO of its stock,
    raising approximately $583 million from the public.  Refco's
    stock was then listed on the New York Stock Exchange.

    On October 10, 2005, Refco announced that it had discovered
    that it was owed approximately $430 million by an entity
    controlled by Mr. Bennett.  Following this announcement, the
    market price of Refco stock plummeted, and Refco's stock was
    subsequently delisted by the New York Stock Exchange.
    Refco, Inc., and many of its subsidiaries filed petitions in
    bankruptcy on October 17, 2005.

    In October 2005, Mr. Sexton became CEO of Refco.  He
    resigned on November 11, 2005.

    The $2,050,000 that Mr. Sexton agreed to forfeit was
    traceable to the LBO proceeds that he received in August
    2004.  Mr. Sexton has not admitted to any liability in
    settling the lawsuit, and agreed to forfeit the $2,050,000
    on the understanding that the U.S. Attorney's Office for the
    Southern District of New York will request that the
    forfeited funds be made available to innocent victims of the
    Refco fraud to compensate their losses.

This case was investigated by the Criminal Investigators of the
Securities and Commodities Fraud Task Force of the United States
Attorney's Office, along with the United States Postal Inspection
Service.  Mr. Bharara praised the work of those investigators and
thanked the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodity
Futures Trading Commission for their assistance in the case.

RESERVE MANAGEMENT: Moody's Reviews Ratings on Three Funds
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has concluded the review of three funds
managed by Reserve Management Company Inc. that Moody's initiated
on September 23, 2008.  All ratings will be withdrawn.

The ratings of these funds are affected:

* The Reserve Fund -- Primary Fund -- Caa rating confirmed.

* Reserve International Liquidity Fund (US$) Ltd. -- Caa/MR1+
  rating confirmed.

* Reserve Yield Plus Fund -- fund rating downgraded to Caa from B,
  market risk rating confirmed at MR3.

The ratings of The Reserve Fund -- Primary Fund and Reserve
International Liquidity Fund (US$) Ltd. were confirmed at Caa and
the fund rating of the Reserve Yield Plus Fund was downgraded to
Caa from B.  Although final distributions are uncertain and
Moody's information imperfect, the ratings reflect Moody's
expectations that the ultimate losses resulting from the funds'
liquidations will be modest (less than 5%).  The ratings also
capture the suspension of redemptions that was imposed on
investors since September 2008 and the loss of value to investors
since then.  Based on these considerations, the expected loss of
the three funds is consistent with that of Caa rating.  The
ratings will be withdrawn as Moody's understands that the funds
are being liquidated.

Further, Reserve Enhanced Cash Strategies Portfolio B/MR2 ratings
which were placed on review for downgrade on September, 23, 2008,
have been withdrawn as Moody's has insufficient or otherwise
inadequate information to support the maintenance of the rating.

These issuers did not participate in the rating process.  The
Rating Committee was not provided, for purposes of the rating,
access to the books, records and other relevant internal documents
of the rated entities or related third parties.

Moody's adopts all necessary measures so that the information it
uses in assigning a rating is of sufficient quality and from
reliable sources; however, Moody's does not and cannot in every
instance independently verify, audit or validate information
received in the rating process.


RIVER 2 SEA: Files for Chapter 7 Liquidation
--------------------------------------------
Chris Mazzolini at StarNews Online reports that River 2 Sea LLC
filed for bankruptcy under Chapter 7 to liquidate assets to pay
creditors.  The filing came before the Company was set to be sold
at an auction.

The filing gave the Company more time to find a buyer for its 10-
acre tract on Surry Srteet near the base of the Cape Fear Memorial
Bridge in downtown Wilmington.  Wilmington Gateway LLC, a company
of local developer Ron Rickett, was named as buyer for the
property, according to the report.

River 2 Sea LLC owns land intended for the 11-story development in
downtown Wilmington.  River 2 estimated assets between $10 million
and $50 million and debts between $1 million and $10 million in
its Chapter 7 petition.


SCO GROUP: Trustee to Sell Assets at October Auction

approval of the sale will take place Nov. 8.

Mr. Rochelle relates that the bankruptcy judge called for a
Chapter 11 trustee in August 2009, about one month before the U.S.
Court of Appeals in Denver ruled in the company's favor after six
years of litigation with Waltham, Massachusetts-based Novell Inc.
The case went back to the district court, where the judge and jury
further clarified SCO's rights in certain Unix software
incorporated in software for network systems.

SKILLED HEALTHCARE: Judge Rejects Motion for Mistrial
-----------------------------------------------------
Matt Drange, writing for The Times-Standard, reports a Humboldt
County judge threw out a motion for a mistrial in the class action
lawsuit against Skilled Healthcare on Friday, signaling another
wild day for the company's stock.

The motion, filed earlier this month by defense attorneys, alleged
misconduct by one member of the jury that returned a $677 million
verdict against the company on July 6.  Defense attorneys called
the amount, which remains the largest jury verdict in the United
States this year, "annihilating," and immediately took action to
have it overturned.

In response to the motion, plaintiffs' attorneys filed a handful
of declarations from other jury members dismissing the alleged
bias and serving as a basis for Judge Bruce Watson to deny the
motion.  In his ruling, Watson stated that he found no evidence of
juror misconduct and no grounds for a mistrial, causing a flurry
of events on Wall Street, with shares dropping as low as $2.46,
down from $3.25 the day before.

The company -- one of the largest nursing home chains in the
country with 78 facilities and some 14,000 employees -- has seen
its stock decline since the lawsuit was brought to court last
November after documents showed the nursing facilities to be in
violation of statewide staffing requirements.

At the time, shares hovered around $7 apiece, and have since taken
numerous hits, including a single-day loss of more than 75 percent
the day the jury verdict was announced.  SKH shares closed at
$2.77 on Friday.

Health care industry analyst Sheryl Skolnick said the news should
not come as a surprise when the recent declarations filed by other
jurors, all of which denied any potential bias, are taken into
consideration.

"Proving misconduct is a tough thing to get done in a case like
this," said Ms. Skolnick, an analyst with CRT Capital Group in
Connecticut, who has been following the case closely.  "I'm not
surprised at all."

In addition to the denial of the motion, the court issued a
permanent injunction that orders all Skilled Healthcare facilities
to comply with the minimum staffing requirements mandated by
California statute.  Effective immediately, each of the 22
facilities implicated in the suit is to maintain 3.2 nursing hours
per-patient, per-day.

A third party will be appointed to monitor that each facility
complies with the law, and any costs associated with that will be
paid by the defendants, according to court documents.

Plaintiffs' attorneys, based out of Eureka, would not comment on
the decision, except to say that it will not effect a scheduled
court date next week.  Phone calls to the office of defense
attorney Kippy Wroten in Southern California were not returned
before deadline.

The two teams of lawyers were due back in court on Tuesday, when
the court will hear additional arguments on motions filed earlier
this month.  Ms. Skolnick said that despite all the recent
filings, which include a motion to have Watson recused from the
case and a separate one seeking a new trial, the future for
Skilled Healthcare does not appear to look much different than it
did one month ago.

Parties in the case agreed to enter into mediation on July 15, and
will not say if a settlement has been reached.  Many in the
investing world have predicted the company will file for
bankruptcy under Title 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code,
which would leave the future of Skilled Healthcare nursing homes
in California and elsewhere in question.

"At this point, the case looks like it's going forward," Ms.
Skolnick said, adding that a final judgment could be looming if a
settlement cannot be reached.  "Once that happens, there really is
no other choice than to file for bankruptcy."

The case is entitled VINNIE LAVENDER, by and through her
Conservator, WANDA BAKER, WALTER SIMON; JACQUELYN VILCHINSKY vs.
SKILLED HEALTHCARE GROUP, INC., et al, (and 22 individually-named
California nursing facilities receiving administrative services
from Skilled Healthcare, LLC).

statutory damages and $58 million in restitutionary damages.  The
case related to a California statute that requires nursing homes

damages were assessed at a rate of $500 per-patient per-day that
the 22 nursing facilities involved in the suit were in violation
of the law.

2009 resulted in a net loss of $133.2 million.  For the first

STATION CASINOS: Court Confirms Chapter 11 Plan
-----------------------------------------------
Judge Gregg W. Zive of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District
of Nevada confirmed on August 27, 2010, the First Amended Joint
Chapter 11 Plan of Reorganization filed by Station Casinos Inc.
and its debtor affiliates.

After receiving evidence submitted by interested parties, hearing
the arguments of counsel, and weighing all the admitted evidence,
the Court determined that the Plan meets all of the requirements
for confirmation under Section 1129 of the Bankruptcy Code:

  (a) The Plan complies with Section 1129(a)(1), Sections 1122
      and 1123.  In accordance with the requirements of Sections
      1122(a) and 1123(a)(1), the Plan designates Classes of
      Claims and Equity Interests, other than Administrative
      Claims and Priority Tax Claims.  Each Class of Claims and
      Equity Interests contains only Claims or Equity Interests
      that are substantially similar to the other Claims or
      Equity Interests within that Class.  The Plan designates
      60 Classes of Claims and 18 Classes of Interests.
      The Plan also specifies all Classes of Claims and Equity
      Interests that are not impaired under the Plan and
      specifies the treatment of all Classes of Claims and
      Equity Interests that are impaired under the Plan.

  (b) The Debtors have complied with Section 1129(a)(2).  The
      Court finds that adequate disclosures of the current
      financial condition of the Debtors and their principal
      non-Debtor subsidiaries, and of the terms and purposes of
      the Restructuring Transactions made during the course of
      the Chapter 11 Cases, the Sale Process, and the
      solicitation of acceptances of the Plan, and in connection
      with the Confirmation Hearing.  The Court has also
      previously determined that the Disclosure Statement
      explaining the Plan contained adequate information, and
      the Debtors provided Holders of Claims and Equity
      interests with substantial additional disclosure materials
      during the period between entry of the Disclosure
      Statement Order and the commencement of the Confirmation
      Hearing.  The procedures by which the Ballots for
      acceptance or rejection of the Plan were solicited and
      tabulated were fair, properly conducted and in accordance
      with the appropriate bankruptcy laws and statutes.

  (c) In accordance with the requirements of Section 1129(a)(3),
      the Debtors proposed the Plan in good faith and not by any
      means forbidden by law.  Based on the evidence presented
      at the Confirmation Hearing, the Court finds and concludes
      that the Plan has been proposed with the legitimate and
      honest purpose of maximizing the returns available to
      creditors of the Debtors through the marketing and sale of
      the Opco Assets for the highest and best price and the
      transfer of the New Propco Acquired Assets to the secured
      creditors with the senior interests in those assets.
      Moreover, the Plan itself and the arm's-length
      negotiations among the Debtors, the Official Committee of
      Creditors, the Opco Lenders and the Mortgage Lenders,
      leading to the Plan's formulation and modification, and
      the public support of the Plan by the Creditors'
      Committee, provide independent evidence of the Debtors'
      good faith in proposing the Plan.

  (d) In accordance with the requirements of Section 1129(a)(4),
      the Plan makes all payments on account of Professional Fee
      Claims for services rendered on or prior to the Effective
      Date subject to the requirements of Sections 327, 328,
      330, 331, 503(b) and 1103, as applicable, by requiring
      Professionals to file final fee applications with the
      Court.

  (e) The Plan complies with the requirements of Section
      1129(a)(5) because, pursuant to the Plan, prior to the
      Effective Date, the Debtors will propose an individual to
      serve as the Plan Administrator, and that appointment will
      be subject to prior Court approval.  None of the entities
      receiving estate assets under the Restructuring
      Transactions is a successor to any Debtor or an affiliate
      of any Debtor participating in a joint plan with the
      Debtors.  Therefore, Section 1129(a)(5) does not apply to
      the transferees of the New Opco Acquired Assets and the
      New Propco Acquired Assets.  No insider is currently
      proposed to be employed by the Debtors after the Effective
      Date.  If an insider of the Debtors is proposed to serve
      as Plan Administrator or as an employee of the Plan
      Administrator, any compensation arrangements will be
      disclosed.

  (f) The Debtors' current businesses do not involve the
      establishment of rates over which any regulatory
      commission has jurisdiction.  Accordingly, Section
      1129(a)(6) does not apply to the Plan.

  (g) In accordance with the requirements of Section 1129(a)(7),
      with respect to each impaired Class of Claims or Equity
      Interests, each holder of a Claim or Interest in the
      impaired Class has either (a) accepted or is deemed to
      have accepted the Plan or, (b) as demonstrated by the
      Liquidation Analysis will receive or retain under the Plan
      on account of the Claim or Interest property of a value,
      as of the Effective Date, that is not less than the amount
      the holder would receive or retain if the Debtors were
      liquidated on the Effective Date under Chapter 7 of the
      Bankruptcy Code.  The Court finds that the methodology
      used by the Debtors and their financial advisors in
      estimating the liquidation value of the Debtors is
      reasonable.  The Liquidation Analysis establishes that
      each Holder of a Claim or Equity Interest that voted to
      reject the Plan or was deemed to reject the Plan, will
      receive or retain under the Plan on account of the Claim
      or Interest property of a value, as of the Effective Date,
      that is not less than the amount the holder would receive
      or retain if the Debtors were liquidated on the Effective
      Date under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code.  Furthermore,
      No Holder of a Claim or Equity Interest objected to
      confirmation of the Plan on the basis that it was not
      receiving or retaining under the Plan as much as it would
      receive in a Chapter 7 liquidation of the Debtors.

  (h) Each of the 17 Voting Classes, without exception,
      voted to accept the Plan.  However, the Plan does not
      comply with the requirement of Section 1129(a)(8) because
      certain Classes of Claims and Equity Interests were deemed
      to have rejected the Plan.  Nevertheless, the Plan is
      confirmable because the Plan satisfies the cramdown
      requirements of Section 1129(b) with respect to all
      non-accepting Classes.

  (i) In accordance with the requirements of Section 1129(a)(9),
      the Plan provides that with respect to Administrative
      Claims (subject to certain consensual exceptions for DIP
      Facility Claims, Superpriority Claims and other adequate
      protection claims), on the later of the Effective Date or
      when an Administrative Claim becomes an Allowed
      Administrative Claim, the Allowed Administrative Claim
      will be paid in cash in the full unpaid Allowed amount of
      the Claim, unless the Holder agrees to less favorable
      treatment.  In accordance with the requirements of Section
      1129(a)(9), the Plan provides that the rights of the
      Holders of Priority Tax Claims are unaltered under the
      Plan.  Under the Plan, Holders of Priority Tax Claims will
      receive, at the election of the Debtors, (i) payment in
      full in cash of the Allowed amount of the claim, (ii) less
      favorable treatment if the Holder agrees, or (iii)
      installment payments in accordance with the requirements
      of Sections 1129(a)(9)(C) and (D).  In accordance with the
      requirements of Section 1129(a)(9), the Plan provides that
      the rights of the Holders of Other Priority Claims are
      unaltered under the Plan.  Under the Plan, Holders of
      Other Priority Claims will receive payment in full in cash
      of the Allowed amount of the Claim.

  (j) In accordance with the requirements of Section
      1129(a)(10), at least one Class of Claims or Equity
      Interests that is Impaired under the Plan voted to accept
      the Plan.  Seventeen Classes of Claims voted to accept the
      Plan, in each case determined without including any
      acceptance of the Plan by any insider.  They are Classes
      FHI.1, FP.1, VC.1, P.2, M5.2, M4.1, M3.1, M2.1, M1.1, S.2,
      S.3, S.4, S.5, S.6, S.7, RC.2 and TS.2.

  (k) The Plan is a liquidating Plan.  The record of these
      Chapter 11 Cases evidences that the parties to the
      Restructuring Transactions have the financial wherewithal
      and desire to close on the Restructuring Transactions,
      including the transfer of the New Opco Acquired Assets and
      New Propco Acquired Assets to the applicable transferees
      pursuant to the Plan.  Thus, the liquidating Plan is
      feasible.  Based on declarations supporting the Plan, the
      aggregate transaction value for the acquisitions of the
      New Propco Acquired Assets and the New Opco Acquired
      Assets is $2.572 billion, and, after deducting the amount
      of debt issued by New Propco and New Opco, the equity
      value of New Propco is $326 million; and the Confirmation
      Order will so provide.

  (l) Under the Plan, certain general unsecured creditors will
      receive NPH Warrants.  Lazard Freres & Co. LLC
      analyzed the value of the NPH Warrants using the
      traditional Black-Scholes model, which, when analyzing
      non-dividend paying stock, is based on an analysis of five
      principal factors: stock price, exercise price, volatility
      of the common stock, term and risk free rate.  Applying
      the Black Scholes model to the NPH Warrants and an equity
      value of $326 million for New Propco, it was determined
      that the value of the NPH Warrants is between $0.4 million
      and $2.3 million; and the Confirmation Order will so
      provide.

  (m) In accordance with the requirements of Section
      1129(a)(12), the Plan provides that Administrative Claims
      for fees payable pursuant to Section 1930 of Title 28 of
      the U.S. Code will be paid in Cash on the Effective Date.
      After the Effective Date, the Reorganized Debtors will pay
      all required fees pursuant to Section 1930 or any other
      statutory requirement, and comply with all statutory
      reporting requirements.

  (n) The Debtors are liquidating and after the Effective Date
      will have no obligations regarding any retiree benefits of
      the kind referred to in Section 1114.  Therefore, Section
      1129(a)(13) does not apply to the Plan.

  (o) Sections 1129(a)(14), (15) and (16) address domestic
      support obligations, individual debtors, and non-moneyed
      businesses, and do not apply to the Debtors.

Any objections, responses to and reservations of right regarding
confirmation of the Plan or any terms of the Plan, whether filed
on the docket or stated orally in court, and whenever filed or
stated, other than those withdrawn with prejudice in their
entirety prior to, or on the record at the Confirmation Hearing,
are overruled on the merits.

For all purposes arising in connection with the Plan and the
transactions contemplated by the Plan: (a) the aggregate
transaction value for the acquisitions of the New Propco Acquired
Assets and the New Opco Acquired Assets is $2.572 billion, and the
equity value of New Propco is $326 million (which equity value may
be adjusted based upon actual borrowings and cash on hand on the
Effective Date); and (b) the value of the NPH Warrants is between
$0.4 million and $2.3 million.

The stipulations extending the time for the Debtors to decide
whether to assume or reject certain leases are approved, and the
Debtors' time to assume, assign or reject the leases that are the
subject of the Lease Stipulations will be the Effective Date (with
the exception of the Wild Wild West Tiberti lease, as to which the
deadline will be the earlier of September 30, 2010, or the date
that the non-debtor lessee breaches the lease).

          SCI Creditors Unanimously Vote to Accept Plan

Joseph Morrow IV, senior consultant of Kurtzman Carson Consultants
LLC, submitted with the Court a ballot summary declaration in
support of the First Amended Plan.  KCC serves as the Debtors'
notice, claims and solicitation agent.

According to Mr. Morrow, the Plan was accepted by creditors in
each of the Voting Classes entitled to vote on the Plan and whose
ballots were counted in accordance with the Disclosure Statement
Order that hold at least two-thirds in amount and more than one-
half in number of the allowed claims of each that Class.  No
Voting Class rejected the Plan, he adds.

A detailed report showing all Ballots tabulated is available for
free at http://bankrupt.com/misc/SCI_BallotsIncluded.pdf

A detailed report showing Ballots not included in the tabulation
is available for free at:

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

Mr. Morrow says the rejected Ballots are either:

  (i) Ballots that are properly completed, executed and timely
      filed, but (a) do not indicate acceptance or rejection of
      the Plan, (b) indicate both an acceptance and rejection of
      the Plan, or (c) partially accept and partially reject the
      Plan; and

(ii) Beneficial Holder Ballots that were sent directly to KCC,
      because KCC has no independent way to determine whether
      those Ballots were also sent to the respective Nominee for
      processing and voting on a Master Ballot.

                     Plan Modifications

Prior to the hearing on the confirmation of the Plan, the Debtors
sought approval from the Court of further modifications to the
First Amended Plan.  The modifications included:

  (a) additional released and exculpated parties;

  (b) additional condition precedent to occurrence of Effective
      Date;

  (c) modification of deadline for assuming, assigning
      and rejecting executory contracts and unexpired leases;
      and

  (d) change in timetable for dissolution of the Debtors.

The definitions of "Exculpated Parties" and "Released Parties" are
modified to include the Settling Lenders and Mezzco Lenders.
"Mezzco Lenders" means the lenders to the Mezzco Debtors.
"Settling Lenders" means the Prepetition Opco Secured Lenders.

The Debtors amended the Plan by adding this condition precedent to
Effective Date and Consummation of the Plan:

  "All documentation relating to the issuance of the NPH
   Warrants, NPH Investment Rights and NPH Post-Effective
   Investment Rights, and all documentation and other matters
   relating to the exemption of such issuances from any
   registration requirements imposed under any federal or state
   securities laws, shall be acceptable in all respects to the
   Debtors, FG and the Mortgage Lenders"

Pursuant to the Amended Plan, the Debtors will have until
December 1, 2010, to file and serve motions to assume, assume and
assign, or reject Executory Contracts and Unexpired Leases.  If
the Debtors reject an Executory Contract or Unexpired Lease, the
non-debtor party will have 30 days from entry of the order
approving the rejection to file a Proof of Claim for rejection
damages.

The Plan currently provides for the dissolution of the Debtors
on the Effective Date.  The Plan was modified to provide that
the Debtors will be dissolved as soon as practicable after the
Effective Date, but in no event later than the closing of
the Chapter 11 cases.  After the Effective Date, the Plan
Administrator will act as the sole officer or manager, as the
case may be, of each of the Debtors.

The Plan Modifications did not alter the classification and
treatment of Claims and Equity Interests, and do not otherwise
make the Plan unconfirmable.

The Debtors also delivered to the Court exhibits to the Plan:

  (a) A list of the terminated existing liens, claims and equity
      interests is available for free at:

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

  (b) A list of the liens that survive the occurrence of the
      Effective Date and the transfer of the New Opco Acquired
      Assets and New Propco Acquired Assets to the applicable
      transferees is available for free at:

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

  (c) A full-text copy of the legal descriptions of certain real
      property being transferred pursuant to the Plan is
      available for free at:

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

                    F. Neufeld's Declaration

Fred Neufeld, Esq., at Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP, in Los
Angeles, California, related to the Court, prior to the
Confirmation Hearing, that he has worked with counsel for certain
key creditor constituencies in the Debtors' Chapter 11 cases to
reach agreement on the form of the Plan Confirmation Order.

According to Mr. Neufeld, these creditor constituencies have
confirmed that they support entry of the Confirmation Order and
the Findings of Facts and Conclusions of Law:

(a) the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors;
(b) the Mortgage Lenders;
(c) the agent for the Prepetition Opco Secured Lenders;
(d) the Steering Committee of Prepetition Opco Secured Lenders;
(e) the Independent Lenders; and
(f) the Put Parties

The Debtors have received comments from various parties-in-
interest regarding the form of both the Confirmation Order and the
Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law, and have made revisions
to both documents accordingly.

(A) Valuation of New Propco and NPH Warrants.

For all purposes arising in connection with the Plan and the
transactions contemplated by the Plan: (a) the aggregate
transaction value for the acquisitions of the New Propco Acquired
Assets and the New Opco Acquired Assets is $2.572 billion, and the
equity value of New Propco is $326 million and (b) the value of
the NPH Warrants is between $0.4 million and $2.3 million.

(B) Dissolution of Special Litigation Committee:

On the Confirmation Date, the SLC will be terminated, dissolved
and discharged from any further duties and responsibilities, and
the members of the SLC and their agents will be released and
discharged from any Claims of any Person or Entity arising from
any acts or omissions related to the prepetition and post-petition
activities of the SLC.  The SLC, its members and agents will be
included in the Plan definitions of Released Parties and
Exculpated Parties.

(C) Appeals

The reversal or modification on appeal of the authorization to
implement the Restructuring Transactions will not affect the
validity of any debt incurred or the priority of any Lien granted
pursuant to the Restructuring Transactions, including with respect
to the New Opco Credit Agreement.

STATION CASINOS: Reports $69,615,000 Loss for June 30 Quarter
-------------------------------------------------------------
Station Casinos, Inc., announced the results of its operations for
the second quarter ended June 30, 2010.

                     Results of Operations

The Company's net revenues for the second quarter ending June 30,
2010, were approximately $233.6 million, a decrease of 12.6%
compared to the prior year's second quarter.  The Company reported
Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter of $61.4 million, a decrease of
22.5% compared to the prior year's second quarter. For the second
quarter, the Company reported a net loss of $69.6 million as
compared to a net loss of $65.3 million in the prior year's second
quarter.

In connection with the Chapter 11 cases, the Company recorded net
reorganization items of $37.9 million in the second quarter.
These reorganization items represent professional fees and other
costs incurred as a direct result of the Chapter 11 cases of
$31.2 million, and adjustments of swap carrying values of
$6.8 million.

The Company also incurred $1.8 million in development and
preopening expenses including preopening expenses of its joint
ventures, $2.6 million of expense related to equity-based awards
and a loss of $1.0 million related to its deferred compensation
plan.

The Company's second quarter earnings from its Green Valley Ranch
joint venture were $3.2 million representing 50% of Green Valley
Ranch's operating income.  For the second quarter, Green Valley
Ranch generated Adjusted EBITDA before management fees of
$11.9 million, a decrease of 21.4% compared to the same period in
the prior year.  Green Valley Ranch reported a net loss of
$5.4 million for the second quarter as compared to a net loss of
$3.8 million in the same period in the prior year.

                   Las Vegas Market Results

For the second quarter, net revenues from the Major Las Vegas
Operations, excluding Green Valley Ranch and Aliante Station, were
$214.7 million, a 12.7% decrease compared to the prior year's
second quarter, while Adjusted EBITDA from those operations
decreased 16.6% to $59.2 million from $71 million in the same
period in the prior year.  The Major Las Vegas Operations reported
a net loss of $19.2 million for the second quarter as compared to
a net loss of $15.6 million in the same period in the prior year.

Adjusted EBITDA is not a generally accepted accounting principle
measurement and is presented solely as a supplemental disclosure
because the Company believes that it is a widely used measure of
operating performance in the gaming industry and is a principal
basis for the valuation of gaming companies.

             Balance Sheet and Capital Expenditures

Long-term debt was $5.9 billion as of June 30, 2010, of which
$5.7 billion was classified as liabilities subject to compromise.
Total capital expenditures were $9.7 million for the second
quarter which consisted primarily of maintenance capital purchases
and other projects.  Equity contributions to joint ventures during
the second quarter were $2.1 million.

Trustee appoint a committee of unsecured creditors as soon as
practicable.  The Committee ordinarily consists of the persons,
willing to serve, that hold the seven largest unsecured claims
against the debtor of the kinds represented on the committee.
Section 1103 of the Bankruptcy Code provides that the Committee
may consult with the debtor, investigate the debtor and its
business operations and participate in the formulation of a plan
of reorganization.  The Committee may also perform other services
as are in the interests of the unsecured creditors whom it
represents.

TROPICANA ENT: Casino Dealers in Atlantic City Agree on CBA
-----------------------------------------------------------
Workers at the Tropicana Casino and Resort in Atlantic City voted
in favor of a tentative agreement for the casino's dealers by a
91% majority.  This collective bargaining agreement is the first
contract for Atlantic City dealers after workers at several
casinos organized with the United Auto Workers (UAW) in August
2007.   The Tropicana is one of four casinos in Atlantic City
where thousands of workers organized with the UAW, and is the
first to reach a tentative contract.  Dealers at the Tropicana
voted by an overwhelming majority to join the union in 2007, with
80% of workers supporting the union.

"We are overjoyed about reaching this agreement and moving forward
to help workers at the other Atlantic City casinos win a fair
contract and the respect they deserve," said Scott Adams, UAW
Region 9 director.

In March 2010, the Tropicana was acquired out of bankruptcy by a
group of investors headed by Carl C. Icahn, and bargaining
progressed since the takeover by new owners.

"We are very happy that we have reached this historic achievement
where all constituencies will benefit," said Mr. Icahn, Chairman
of the Board of Tropicana Entertainment Inc., which owns the
Tropicana.

"We are very pleased to enter into a long term partnership with
the United Auto Workers," said Scott Butera, President and Chief
Executive Officer of Tropicana Entertainment Inc., which owns the
Tropicana.  "This collective bargaining agreement will offer our
table games dealers a rewarding work environment as they continue
to provide our guests with high quality gaming and entertainment
experiences."

"We look forward to a productive relationship with Scott Butera,
Mark Giannantonio and the rest of the casino's management team,
and to working together to make the Tropicana a great place for
customers, workers and investors," said UAW Vice President Joe
Ashton, who directs the union's Gaming Department.

Details of the contract were explained at informational meetings
for Tropicana workers on August 18 and August 19.  Voting took
place following the meetings.  The contract is five-year agreement
and contains an 18% wage increase over the length of the contract.

The UAW, one of the nation's largest and most diverse labor
unions, represents more than 8,800 gaming employees in Detroit,
Atlantic City, Rhode Island, Connecticut and Indiana.

TROPICANA ENT: Icahn Sues Las Vegas Entities Over Trademarks
------------------------------------------------------------
Icahn Agency Services LLC, as the administrative and collateral
agent for the lenders under the December 29, 2009 OpCo Exit
Facility; Icahn Partners LP; Icahn Partners Master Fund LP; Icahn
Partners Master Fund II LP; Icahn Partners Master Fund III LP;
Tropicana Entertainment Inc.; and New Tropicana Holdings, Inc.
commenced an adversary complaint on August 10, 2010, in the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware against Tropicana
Las Vegas, Inc., and Hotel Ramada of Nevada, LLC, to:

  (a) enforce prior orders of the Bankruptcy Court; and

  (b) enjoin the Defendants' alleged wrongful efforts to assert
      in a Nevada state court action that they, and not
      Plaintiff New Tropicana Holdings, are the owners of the
      "TROPICANA" and "TROP" trademarks and service marks.

The Icahn Plaintiffs particularly take issue of the Defendants'
alleged right to use the Tropicana Trademark on a royalty free
basis in connection with their Las Vegas operations as they had
when the LandCo Debtors were wholly owned by the OpCo Debtors.

The Tropicana Debtors fall into two groups: (1) The LandCo
Debtors, which comprise of entities previously involved in the
ownership and operation of the Tropicana Hotel and Casino in Las
Vegas, Nevada, including Hotel Ramada of Nevada, and (2) The OpCo
Debtors, which comprise of entities previously involved in the
operation of the Tropicana Casino & Resort Atlantic City in New
Jersey, the Tropicana Express in Laughlin, Nevada, and other
casinos.

Tropicana Las Vegas was formerly part of Tropicana Entertainment
LLC.  Tropicana Entertainment, LLC, an OpCo Debtor, is the former
parent company of certain of the other Debtors.

Icahn has since then acquired the Tropicana parent.  Tropicana
Las Vegas, on the other hand, was spun off to certain investors,
which include Onex Corporation and its affiliates.

The Icahn-owned Tropicana entity is now called Tropicana
Entertainment Inc.

Representing the Icahn Plaintiffs, Daniel J. DeFranceschi, Esq.,
at Richards, Layton & Finger, P.A., in Wilmington, Delaware,
avers that for more than 30 years, the OpCo and LandCo Debtors
represented to the world that the Tropicana Trademarks were owned
by Tropicana Entertainment, LLC.

Among other things, billions of dollars of acquisitions, sales
and loans were made based on those representations, according to
Mr. DeFranceschi.  He specifically notes that certain Icahn
Entities believed an OpCo Debtor is the owner of the Tropicana
Trademarks when they loaned money prepetition to OpCo and LandCo.

Even the Bankruptcy Court entered orders approving the LandCo and
OpCo Plans and granting the OpCo Exit Facility Lenders liens on
the Tropicana Trademarks free and clear of all liens, claims and
encumbrances, Mr. DeFranceschi points out.  These orders refers
to the May 30, 2008 Cash Collateral Order and the May 5, 2009
Plan Confirmation Order.

However, the Defendants are now seeking a declaration in the
Nevada state court action entitled "Tropicana Las Vegas, Inc., et
al. v. Aztar Corporation, et al.," Case No. A09595469-B (Nev. D.
Ct., Clark County), that they actually "own" the Tropicana
Trademarks based upon a document that they describe as a newly
discovered agreement from 30 years ago.  The Defendants assert
that a certain "1980 Trade Name Agreement" is a basis upon which
to change everything.

In particular, as a predicate to the Defendants' claim in the
Nevada Action, the LandCo Debtors submitted supplemental
bankruptcy schedules -- months after the effective date of the
LandCo Plan -- to include the 1980 Trade Name Agreement.

The Defendants' current assertions are contrary to prior
assurances they made to the Bankruptcy Court that they would not
seek any property in the Nevada Action, the Icahn Plaintiffs
complain.

Mr. DeFranceschi argues that the Defendants' claim that the
subject document is "newly discovered" offers no justification to
revisit the Bankruptcy Court's prior orders.  The LandCo Entities
had as much access to the 1980 Trade Name Agreement as the OpCo
Entities during the bankruptcy proceedings, he points out.

All parties-in-interest, including the lenders under the LandCo
Credit Facility, could have challenged the Bankruptcy Court's
findings in the May 30, 2008 Cash Collateral Order during the 90-
day challenge period, Mr. DeFranceschi notes, but none of them
did so because all of them knew that Tropicana Entertainment LLC
owned the Tropicana Trademarks, and all of them had acted in
reliance on that knowledge.

Mr. DeFranceschi adds that that the 1980 Trade Name Agreement has
long since been extinguished -- if not by 2002 when Aztar
Corporation became the beneficial owner of all the equity in the
entity alleged to have contingent reversionary interest, then by
operation of law subsequently by the failure to record the
agreement with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office before the
transfer of title to the Tropicana Trademarks to Tropicana
Entertainment, LLC in 2007.

The Tropicana Trademarks had an appraised value of almost
$200,000,000 in 2007.  The Icahn Plaintiffs contend that if
indeed the Defendants actually owned the Tropicana Trademarks --
which they do not -- then this would create an immediate event of
default under the OpCo Exit Facility to the detriment of the
Reorganized OpCo Debtors.

Accordingly, as a result of the Defendants' wrongful attack on
the Bankruptcy Court's prior orders and the Nevada state court's
need for clarity on the impact of those orders, the Icahn
Plaintiffs aver that they are compelled to file the Complaint to
enforce the Bankruptcy Court's prior orders and to seek a
declaratory judgment that:

  (a) New Tropicana Holdings, Inc., is the sole owner of the
      Tropicana Trademarks, as these were the property of
      Tropicana Entertainment LLC's estate and collateral for
      the OpCo Lenders;

  (b) Icahn Agency Services LLC has a valid and perfected
      security interest in the Tropicana Trademarks for the
      benefit of the OpCo Exit Facility Lenders regardless of
      who owns the Tropicana Trademarks;

  (c) The LandCo Debtors' supplemental bankruptcy schedules are
      null and void; and

  (d) The Defendants in the Nevada Action violated the automatic
      stay to the extent they sought to acquire ownership of the
      Tropicana Trademarks, as opposed to merely the right to
      use those marks in connection with their Las Vegas
      operations.

The Icahn Plaintiffs also seek permanent injunction prohibiting
the Defendants or their affiliates from litigating any alleged
ownership interests in the Tropicana Trademarks in the Nevada
Action or in any other proceeding in any jurisdiction.

TRUVO USA: AllianceBernstein Challenges Bankruptcy Plan
-------------------------------------------------------
AllianceBernstein LP and other Truvo USA LLC creditors objected to
the directory publisher's bankruptcy plan, saying that it is based
on a "collusive arrangement" with senior lenders, American
Bankruptcy Institute reports.

TRUVO USA: Disclosure Statement Hearing on Today
------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York
will convene a hearing on September 1 to consider approval of the
disclosure statement explaining the Chapter 11 plan for Truvo USA
LLC and its affiliates.

Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that the Chapter 11 cases for units of Belgium-based Truvo
Luxemburg Sarl may test whether a U.S. bankruptcy court can or
should eliminate debt on European companies that aren't in
bankruptcy in the U.S. or abroad.

Mr. Rochelle recounts that Truvo missed a June 1 interest payment
on two issues of second-priority notes.  Some non-operating
subsidiaries sought Chapter 11 protection in July with a
reorganization plan negotiated with holders of 80% of the EUR778
million ($993 million) of first-priority senior debt and holders
of 15% of the second-priority debt.

According to Mr. Rochelle, the Chapter 11 case's outcome will turn
on whether the bankruptcy court finds that the plan properly
carries out a so-called enforcement sale under an intercreditor
agreement governed by English law.  The agreement provides that if
there is a default on the first-lien debt, the senior creditors
may sell the stock of the subsidiaries for cash at a public
auction or at fair market value determined by an internationally
recognized investment bank.  If the sale is properly invoked,
liens on the assets of the operating subsidiaries are canceled
along with liens on the stock of the subsidiaries.

The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors is opposing the
Plan.  According to Mr. Rochelle, the Committee contends that the
Chapter 11 case isn't properly carrying out an enforcement sale.
The Committee points out that the non-bankrupt affiliates hold all
the assets and businesses.  The Companies in Chapter 11, the
committee says, have no operations, employees, trade creditors or
"hard assets."  The Committee contends that the Plan violates the
intercreditor agreement in several respects. Among other things,
the Committee complains that the transaction isn't a sale for
EUR600 million cash, because the cash would be repaid by the end
of the day when the Plan is consummated.

The Committee comprises two holders of the second-lien debt and
their indenture trustee.  The members are AllianceBernstein LP,
Normandy Hill Capital LP and Bank of New York Mellon-London Branch
as indenture trustee.

Under the Plan, the senior lenders under are to receive the new
equity plus EUR600 million new debt.  In return for the EUR595
million on two issues of second-priority notes, the holders are to
be given EUR15 million and warrants for 14% of the stock at a
EUR150 million price.  If the second lien lenders vote against the
plan, they are to receive nothing.  For the EUR174 million on pay-
in- kind third-priority notes, holders will receive warrants for 1
percent of the stock.  If the class votes against the plan, they
are to receive nothing.  The new debt for the senior lenders is to
consist of EUR350 million in first-lien debt, EUR100 million in
second-lien debt, and EUR150 million in pay-in-kind debt.

-------------------------------------------------
In an amended Schedule 13D filing with the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission dated August 12, 2010, UBS AG disclosed that
it is deemed to beneficially own 156,073 shares of Visteon Corp.
common stock.  The UBS shares constitute 0.12% of Visteon's
130,245,880 outstanding shares as of July 30, 2010.

The latest SEC report of UBS is Amendment No. 3 to its Schedule
13D filing.

UBS' Schedule 13D Amendment No. 3 discloses that on August 9,
2010, Visteon Corp., certain investors and additional purchasers

      expenses incurred by them on or prior to the date of the
      Third Amendment; provided, that the reimbursement does not
      exceed $4,250,000 in the aggregate for all Additional
      Purchasers;

  (v) Article VI and Article VII, pursuant to which the
      Additional Purchasers have made certain representations
      and warranties to the Issuer and have agreed to comply
      with certain covenants, respectively, including Section

      generally support the Plan and withdraw with prejudice

      authorizing the Debtors to enter into a Plan Support
      Agreement, an Equity Commitment Agreement, and a Cash
      Recovery Backstop Agreement;

(vi) Section 9.1(b) to include the obligations of the
      Additional Purchasers to indemnify various parties; and

(vii) Section 11.9 to allow Additional Purchasers to bring
      actions for equitable relief for breaches by the Issuer of
      the Third Amendment to the Equity Commitment Agreement and
      to limit the remedies the Issuer may have against the
      Additional Purchasers.

VITRO SAB: Bond Rally Shows Creditors See Sweetened Offer
---------------------------------------------------------
Thomas Black at Bloomberg News reports that Vitro, S.A.B. de
C.V.'s defaulted bonds have climbed to a 23-month high on
speculation that the company will sweeten an offer to restructure
US$1.2 billion in debt that was rejected by creditors last month.

According to the report, Vitro SAB's 9.125% bonds maturing in 2017
have more than doubled in price to 50 cents on August 30, 2010, on
the dollar from a low of 21.25 cents on March 11, 2009.  The
report relates that they reached 51 cents on Aug. 2, the highest
since Oct. 3, 2008.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
August 25, 2010, The Financial Online said that Vitro SAB
postponed the launch of an application consent, previously
disclosed to be launched in early August, in relation to its bonds
with a rate of 8.625% interest due 2012, 11.75% in 2013 and 9.125%
in 2017.  According to the report, the company postponed the
launch of the application for consent until September 2010 because
it is in discussions with relevant creditors in both ends with the
revision of the terms and conditions of the same application.  The
report related Vitro SAB said that it remains committed to deliver
a package, which includes cash and new tools, representing a
significant increase in the recovery of the creditors of the level
of historical price of the bonds.

Meanwhile, the report notes, Vitro's creditors said that they
hired a Mexican law firm after saying two weeks earlier they may
"be forced to exercise remedies against Vitro."

"Pushing the company into bankruptcy is still an option that is
being considered, and that's why they went out and hired these
litigators," the report quoted Alexander Monroy, a debt analyst
with Barclays Capital Inc., as saying.

                          About Vitro SAB

Headquartered in Monterrey, Mexico, Vitro, S.A.B. de C.V. (BMV:

Norteamerica, SA de C.V. and Vimexico, S.A. de C.V., is a global
glass producer, serving the construction and automotive glass
markets and glass containers needs of the food, beverage, wine,

                           *     *     *

In June 2010, Fitch Ratings withdrew all ratings of Vitro, S.A.B.
de C.V., given the lack of information following the company's
default on Feb. 2, 2009, and consistent with Fitch's policies.
Fitch will no longer provide ratings or credit research on the
Company.  Andres R. Martinez at Bloomberg News said in June that
Vitro was suspended from trading in Mexico City after failing to
file its fourth-quarter earnings report.  The company missed the
June 2 deadline for the results, Mexico's stock exchange said in
an e-mailed statement obtained by the news agency.  Vitro plans to
file the report once its debt restructuring is complete or if
ordered by a judge.  Vitro said that the suspension won't affect
company operations.

On June 30, 2009, Galaz, Yamazaki, Ruiz Urquiza, S.C., member of
Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu and C.P.C. Jorge Alberto Villarreal in
Monterrey, N.L., Mexico raised substantial doubt about the
Company's ability to continue as a going concern after auditing
financial results for the period ended Dec. 31, 2007, and 2008.
The auditors pointed out to the Company's net loss and its non-
compliance with covenants related to its long-term debt
obligations.


VIVAKOR INC: Posts $663,700 Net Loss in June 30 Quarter

WARREN ZIDE: Files for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Protection
------------------------------------------------------
Eric Morath at Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review reports that
film producer Warren Zide has certified to the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court in Los Angles that he has completed credit counseling and
received notice that he needs to take a course in financial
management, court papers show.

Mr. Zide's work includes the "American Pie" and "Final
Destination" movies.  Mr. Zide filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy on
August 18.

The Detroit News reported that the Southfield, Michigan native
owes the state of California $518,630 in back taxes.  Detroit News
said the Chapter 7 filing was incomplete, but he listed estimated
assets and liabilities between $1 million and $10 million.


WASHINGTON MUTUAL: Preferreds Wants Docs. From WaMu & JPMCC
-----------------------------------------------------------
A consortium of holders of trust preferred securities of
Washington Mutual, Inc., subject to treatment under Class 19 of
the Debtors' Chapter 11 Plan of Reorganization asks Judge Mary F.
Walrath of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware
to direct WaMu and JPMorgan Chase, National Association to
produce and organize all responsive documents corresponding to
the TPS Consortium's requests by September 1, 2010.

As previously reported, the TPS Consortium complained that since
the announcement of the purported Global Settlement Agreement
that forms the basis of the Debtors' Chapter 11 Plan of
Reorganization, as amended, the Debtors have chosen to "engage in
delay tactics" aimed at furthering their efforts to achieve
confirmation of the Plan so as to deliver significant benefits or
valuable releases to JPMorgan Chase insiders and other select
parties.

As a result, the TPS Consortium filed with the Court separate
requests for the Debtors and JPMorgan Chase's production of
documents for discovery.

In an affidavit filed with the Court, the TPS Consortium asked
the Debtors to comply with their obligations under the Federal
Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure.  Counsel to the TPS Consortium,
Kathleen Campbell Davis, Esq., at Campbell & Levine LLC, in
Wilmington, Delaware, relates that at the hearing held on
August 10, 2010, the Court directed that, with respect to the TPS
Consortium's document requests, the Producing Parties "[s]hould
be able to organize the documents that are responsive to the
discovery requests or [they] should provide metadata for all
those documents so that the plaintiffs can do it without making
the plaintiffs pay for it."

However, Ms. Davis says, there remain significant disputes about
the Debtors' and JPMorgan Chase's failure to comply with their
discovery obligations.

"During a teleconference on August 16, Debtors stated that in
addition to providing certain metadata, they will provide some
form of guidance to search for documents.  However, the form of
that guidance remains undisclosed, as is the timing for its
provision," Ms. Davis complains.

The Debtors' counsel has stated that it will be at least another
week before any progress will be made, and maybe several weeks
beyond that for a substantive response.  In other words, more
delay in responding to requests that are already more than two
months old, Ms. Davis says.

JPMorgan Chase has stated that it will provide only metadata --
consisting primarily of information related to date, author,
recipient, among others -- which "is insufficient to satisfy
[JPMorgan]'s discovery obligations and will not be a useful tool
in determining what, or even whether, responsive documents have
been produced," Ms. Davis tells the Court.

Ms. Davis recalls that at an August 20 conference call, the TPS
Consortium confirmed that JPMorgan does not intend to provide any
other information.  In other words, JPMorgan will continue to
hide the ball with respect to its responses, or rather, the lack
of it.

The obligation to organize documents is placed on the Producing
Party because they are familiar with the documents that exist,
with the documents that have been produced, and with the
documents that have been withheld, Ms. Davis emphasizes.
Providing a search function or metadata cannot help the recipient
determine those facts, she maintains.

                        Debtors React

The TPS Consortium misconstrues the Court's ruling and ignores
the Debtors' extensive efforts to provide the Consortium with the
requested discovery in a user-friendly format, Mark D. Collins,
Esq., at Richards, Layton & Finger, P.A., in Wilmington,
Delaware, contends on the Debtors' behalf.

The Court's August 10 ruling noted that the Debtors "can either
organize the documents produced so they correspond to the
requests or provide the metadata to the TPS Consortium in
response to their discovery requests," with which the Debtors
have more than complied, Mr. Collins says.

The Court's ruling leaves no doubt as to what the Debtors must do
to comply with their discovery obligations and the Debtors
promptly spelled out for the TPS Consortium exactly what they
would do to comply.  Apparently re-thinking its own request for
access to metadata for the depository, the TPS Consortium now
suggests that this Court may be "confused" by the issues of
organization and format relating to metadata under the Federal
Rules of Civil Procedure, Mr. Collins avers.

Mr. Collins explains that the Debtors have agreed to provide
metadata for the documents in the Depository, which will give the
TPS Consortium access to a fully-searchable, litigation-style
database.  Moreover, the Debtors have gone one step further and
also agreed to identify for the TPS Consortium specific
documents, categories of documents and individuals with relevant
documents, that are responsive to the Document Requests, he tells
the Court.

Mr. Collins further relates that the Debtors explained the
process required to process the image files and metadata and
specified to the TPS Consortium.  The Debtors informed the
Consortium that the production "would be available by
September 1, 2010, [which] is one week less than the Debtors'
initial three-week estimate," Mr. Collins notes.

In this regard, the Debtors are complying fully with the Court's
ruling.  However, rather than cooperate in the Debtors' good
faith efforts to achieve a consensual resolution of the Discovery
issues, the TPS Consortium seeks immediate relief.

WASHINGTON MUTUAL: Proposes Buss Class Action Settlement
--------------------------------------------------------
The Washington Mutual, Inc. Pension Plan is an employee pension
benefit plan pursuant to Section 3(2)(A of the United States
Labor Code and Section 1002(2)(A) of the Employee Retirement
Income Security Act of 1974, as amended, and a "defined benefit
plan" within the meaning of 29 Section 1002(35) of the Labor Code
and Section 3(35) of the ERISA.  The WaMu Pension Plan is
intended to satisfy the tax requirements of Section 401 of the
Internal Revenue Code, and is sponsored by WaMu.

The proposed Global Settlement Agreement embodied in the Debtors'
Chapter Plan of Reorganization contemplates that as of the plan
effective date, JPMorgan Chase will assume sponsorship of the
WaMu Pension Plan.

In June 2007, certain participants in the WaMu Pension Plan
commenced litigation against the WaMu Pension Plan and the
Washington Mutual Pension Plan Administration Committee, styled
Buus, et. al. v. WaMu Pension Plan, et al., in the United States
District Court for the Western District of Washington.

The Named Plaintiffs in the Buus Action alleged that the WaMu
Pension Plan's cash balance formula for calculating pension
benefits violates ERISA, and that the WaMu Pension Plan failed to
comply with ERISA's age discrimination, notice and disclosure
provisions.  The District Court certified, in July 2008, four
subclasses pursuant to Rule 23 of the Federal Rules of Civil
Procedure.

In light of the commencement of the Debtors' Chapter 11 cases,
the District Court stayed the Buus Action for 30 days.
Subsequently, the Named Plaintiffs and the Named Defendants filed
status reports informing the District Court of, among other
things, the status of the Debtors' Chapter 11 cases and the
corresponding litigation between the Debtors, JPMorgan Chase, and
the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation relating to the
disposition of the WaMu Pension Plan and the ownership of the
Debtors' other significant assets.  The Named Defendants and the
Named Plaintiffs disputed whether the Buus Action should continue
to be stayed in light of the Debtors' Chapter 11 Cases and the
litigation with JPMorgan Chase and the FDIC relating to the
Action.

The Named Plaintiffs sought to lift the automatic stay to
continue the Buus Action.  In an effort to facilitate a
resolution of the Action, the Named Plaintiffs and the Debtors
agreed to adjourn the hearing to consider the Stay Relief Motion
pending the outcome of their settlement discussions.

In light of the Buus Action, the Named Plaintiffs also filed
proofs of claim against the Debtors.  The Class Claims, in
undisclosed amounts, are:

  Claim No.          Claimant
  ---------          --------
    1950             Thomas Schoenleber

    1951             Bryan Buck

    1952             Gary Buus, Sidney Flor, Kellie Plumb,
                     Thomas Schoenleber, and Margaret Weber

    1957             Bryan Buck

    1959             Margaret Weber

    1972             Kellie Plumb

    1973             Sidney Flor

    2504             Gary Buus

    2513             Audrey Schulman

In addition to the Class Claims, the Debtors are aware of Claim
No. 3239 filed by an individual, Adelle Comfort, asserting a
claim against WaMu for retirement benefits under ERISA, and
relating to the Buus Action.

                       Settlement Terms

Subsequently, to avoid a costly litigation, WaMu and the Named
Defendants, together with Named Plaintiffs have agreed to settle
the Buus Action.  Pursuant to the Settlement, the Settling
Parties agree to these terms:

  * The Settling Parties stipulate to the certification of two
    additional subclasses, including all participants under the
    (i) retirement plan maintained by H.F. Ahmanson & Company;
    and (ii) the Great Western Retirement Plan, whose accrued
    benefits or pension benefits are based in whole or in part
    on the WaMu Pension Plan's cash balance formula from Jan. 1,
    1998, to the present.

  * Within 30 days after the Settlement Agreement becomes
    effective, the sponsor of the WaMu Pension Plan and any
    successor sponsor will adopt an amendment to the WaMu
    Pension Plan "which will increase the liabilities of the
    WaMu Pension Plan to those participants . . . who are
    members of the Settlement Class . . . by the amount of
    $20 million, less certain fees and expenses associated with
    the implementation of the Settlement."

  * Members of the Settlement Class will receive an increase in
    their benefits equal to their per capita share of the
    $20 million Net Settlement Amount.  The increase in
    liabilities of the WaMu Pension Plan will be in full and final
    satisfaction of all claims asserted in the Buus Action.  No
    other payments or increases in liabilities will be made by
    or incurred on behalf of WaMu, the Named Defendants or the
    persons or entities to be released to the Settlement Class
    in connection with the Settlement.

  * The term "Released Claims" under the Settlement Agreement
    will include any and all claims arising from or relating to
    the Buus Action.  The Released Claims, however, do not
    include (i) unrelated claims for vested benefits, or (ii)
    claims based on improper benefit calculations not related to
    the Action.

  * The Settling Parties agree to customary releases and
    indemnification provisions.

  * If the Settlement Agreement is terminated and rendered void,
    (i) the Buus Action and the parties' claims and defenses
    in the Chapter 11 cases will revert to their status as
    of June 28, 2010, and the Class Claims will not be expunged
    and; (ii) all Releases given under or pursuant to the
    Settlement Agreement will be void.

Mark D. Collins, Esq., at Richards, Layton & Finger, P.A., in
Wilmington, Delaware, informed Judge Mary F. Walrath that the
District Court will hold a fairness hearing on October 29, 2010,
at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time to consider the entry of a final order:

  (a) approving the Settlement Agreement and the Net Settlement
      Amount;

  (b) dismissing the Buus Action, with prejudice, and entering
      final judgment; and

  (c) permanently enjoining (i) the members of the Settlement
      Class from bringing any Released Claim against any
      Settling Defendant or Releasee; and (ii) any Person from
      bringing any claims against the Releasees for indemnity or
      contribution arising out of the Buus Action or any other
      claims arising out of or related to the Released Claims.

Accordingly, the Debtors ask Judge Walrath to approve the Buus
Class Action Settlement Agreement and disallow the Class Claims
relating to the Buus Action.

In the event the Global Settlement Agreement is approved by the
Bankruptcy Court prior to the effective date of the Settlement
Agreement relating to the Buus Action, sponsorship of the WaMu
Pension Plan will be transferred from WaMu to JPMorgan Chase in
accordance with the Global Settlement Agreement.

WASHINGTON MUTUAL: Settles Wilmington Trust's $43MM Claims
----------------------------------------------------------
Wilmington Trust Company is the successor Indenture Trustee for
five of the seven series of junior subordinated debt securities,
in the aggregate original principal amount of $68,580,000,
assumed by Washington Mutual Bank in connection with its
acquisition of Commerce Capital Bancorp in 2006 and Hawthorne
Financial Corporation.  The indentures relate to HFC Capital
Trust I, CCB Capital Trust IV, CCB Capital Trust V, CCB Capital
Trust VII, and CCB Capital Trust VIII.

Each series of the WMB/CCB Subordinated Notes was sold to a
separate special purpose Delaware statutory trust.  Wilmington
Trust also serves as successor Guarantee Trustee for certain of
the WMB/CCB Subordinated Notes.

Wilmington Trust has been appointed by the U.S. Trustee to serve
as a member of the official unsecured creditors' committee for
holders of approximately $43 million of debt guaranteed by
Washington Mutual, Inc.

Representing the Debtors, Mark D. Collins, Esq., at Richards,
Layton & Finger, P.A., in Wilmington, Delaware, relates that
Wilmington Trust, as Indenture Trustee, on behalf of itself and
other holders of debt issued pursuant to the Indentures, asserted
claims for unliquidated guarantee claims as of the Petition Date.

The Claims are:

Claim   Indenture   Interest   Maturity    Claimed     Claimed
   No.     Date        Rate       Date      Principal   Interest
-----   ---------   --------   --------  -----------   ---------
  2113    03/28/01    10.18%      2031     $9,300,000    $286,651
  2116    09/25/10  Floating Rate 2033     $7,732,000     $98,999
  2118    12/19/03  Floating Rate 2034    $10,310,000    $104,833
  2120    05/27/04  Floating Rate 2034     $7,732,000     $75,120
  2122    06/22/04  Floating Rate 2034     $7,732,000     $80,064

In addition to the Guarantee Claims, the Indenture Trustee Proofs
of Claims asserted claims for the continuing accrual of interest
and various other unliquidated amounts allegedly due and owing
under the Indentures for both prepetition and postpetition
periods, according to Mr. Collins.

Certain of the debt issued pursuant to the indentures relating to
HFC Capital Trust I, CCB Capital Trust IV, CCB Capital Trust V,
CCB Capital Trust VII, and CCB Capital Trust VIII was issued at a
discount to its face value, or with "original issue discount."
Unamortized original issue discount is treated as unmatured
interest pursuant to Section 502(b)(2) of the Bankruptcy Code
and, therefore, disallowed as a claim against a Chapter 11
debtor, Mr. Collins says, citing In re Chateaugay Corp., 961 F.2d
378, 380 (2nd Cir. 1992).

As part of the Debtors' ongoing claims reconciliation process,
the Debtors reviewed and analyzed the Indenture Trustee Claims
and determined that the Guarantee Claims should be allowed in
amounts that are different from the amounts that were asserted in
the Indenture Trustee Claims.

As a result of discussions, the Debtors and the Indenture Trustee
have agreed that the Guarantee Claims will be reduced and allowed
in these amounts, totaling $43,443,878:

Claim     Indenture        Interest     Maturity     Allowed
  No.       Date             Rate         Date         Amount
-----     ---------        --------     --------  -------------
  2113   March 28, 2011      10.18%        2031      $9,854,022
  2116   Sept. 25, 2003   Floating Rate    2033      $7,829,778
  2118    Dec. 19, 2003   Floating Rate    2034     $10,413,245
  2120     May 27, 2004   Floating Rate    2034      $7,805,982
  2122    June 22, 2004   Floating Rate    2034      $7,810,851

The Allowed Guarantee Claim Amounts, however, will be further
reduced, on a dollar-for-dollar basis by the amount, if any, of
distributions received by the Indenture Trustee from or on
account of the Receivership of WMB under the Federal Deposit
Insurance Corporation, according to Mr. Collins.

The Debtors and Wilmington Trust reserve their rights with
respect to the Additional Unliquidated Claims in the Indenture
Trustee Claims.

The Debtors ask the Court to approve the Wilmington Guarantee
Claims Settlement.

YELLOWSTONE CLUB: Ch. 11 Trustee Wants Founder to Pay $286MM
------------------------------------------------------------
Dow Jones' DBR Small Cap reports that the trustee of Yellowstone
Mountain Club LLC's bankruptcy estate says a court ruling pinning
the exclusive ski-and-golf community's plunge into financial ruin
on founder Timothy Blixseth should hold Mr. Blixseth liable for
$286.4 million in damages.  According to DBR, Marc S. Kirschner,
trustee of the Yellowstone Club Liquidating Trust, is urging a
bankruptcy judge to tweak an Aug. 16 ruling to specify the amount
of damages Mr. Blixseth owes the club's creditors.

DBR notes the judge had ordered Mr. Blixseth to pay the trust
sufficient funds to cover the claims of the club's creditors but
didn't set a specific dollar amount.  Mr. Kirschner, who as
trustee has been tasked for the past year with carrying out the
creditor payments set out under Yellowstone Club's reorganization
plan, says Mr. Blixseth should be held liable for the full amount
of the $286.4 million in loan proceeds he was found to have
improperly funneled away from the club, leading to its collapse
into bankruptcy in late 2008.

                      About Yellowstone Club

Last Updated: August 16, 2010

                           *********

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.

For copies of court documents filed in the District of Delaware,
please contact Vito at Parcels, Inc., at 302-658-9911.  For
bankruptcy documents filed in cases pending outside the District
of Delaware, contact Ken Troubh at Nationwide Research &
Consulting at 207/791-2852.
