------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Trustee for Region 19 will convene a meeting of 2001
Properties, LLC's creditors on October 4, 2010, at 10:00 a.m.  The
meeting will be held at 1961 Stout Street, Room 239, Denver, CO
80202.

This is the first meeting of creditors required under Section
341(a) of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code in all bankruptcy cases.

All creditors are invited, but not required, to attend.  This
Meeting of Creditors offers the one opportunity in a bankruptcy
proceeding for creditors to question a responsible office of the
Debtor under oath about the company's financial affairs and
operations that would be of interest to the general body of
creditors.

Mission Hills, Kansas-based 2001 Properties, LLC, filed for
Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on August 31, 2010 (Bankr. D.
Colo. Case No. 10-32331).  Guy B. Humphries, Esq., in Denver,
Colorado, assists the Debtor in its restructuring effort.  The
Debtor estimated assets and debts at $10 million to $50 million in
its Chapter 11 petition.


2001 PROPERTIES: Taps Taps Guy Humphries as Bankruptcy Counsel
--------------------------------------------------------------
2001 Properties, LLC, asks for authorization from the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Colorado to employ Guy
Humphries as bankruptcy counsel.

Mr. Humphries will, among other things:

     (a) analyze the Debtor's financial situation and render
         advice concerning a plan of reorganization;

     (b) provide legal advice concerning its powers and duties as
         a debtor-in-possession;

     (c) prepare and file any petition, schedules, statement of
         affairs and any other required documents; and

     (d) represent the Debtor at the meeting of creditors and all
         hearings related to this case.

Mr. Humphries will be paid $300 per hour for services provided to
the Debtor.  Attorneys at Mr. Humphries' firm will be paid
$120 per hour while paralegals will be paid $75.

Mr. Humphries assures the Court that the firm is "disinterested"
as that term is defined in Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code.

Mission Hills, Kansas-based 2001 Properties, LLC, filed for
Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on August 31, 2010 (Bankr. D.
Colo. Case No. 10-32331).  The Debtor estimated assets and debts
at $10 million to $50 million in its Chapter 11 petition.


2626 BWAY: Axed Deal Prompts Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Filing
---------------------------------------------------------
2626 BWAY LLC sought Chapter 11 protection on Sept. 3, 2010
(Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 10-14731)

2626 BWAY LLC owns the The Metro Theater at 2626 Broadway, a
landmarked Upper West Side building, between West 99th and West
100th streets in Manhattan.

Amanda Fung at Crain's New York Business reports that the building
was supposed to be home to an Urban Outfitters, but that deal fell
through last year as a result of a dispute between the master
lease holder, John Souto, and the building's owner, Albert Bialek.
Mr. Souto holds a 49-year lease on the property and had an option
to buy the building outright at an undisclosed price in 2008.

Besen & Associates and Besen Retail was retained to simultaneously
sell or lease the property about eight months ago, says Ms. Fung,
citing papers filed with the Court.

Arnold Mitchell Greene, Esq., at Robinson Brog Leinwand Greene
Genovese & Gluck, P.C., in New York, serves as cousnel to the
Debtor.  The Debtor estimated assets of $10 million to $50 million
and debts of $1 million to $10 million in its Chapter 11 petition.


ACTION PRODUCTS: Working Towards Debt Restructuring
---------------------------------------------------
Action Products International, Inc. is in discussions for the
completion of a reverse merger with or acquisition of a private
company.  If completed, the move would bring a solid operating
business into the company.  In addition, Action Products is
working on obtaining financing to pay off existing liabilities or
other debt consolidation plan.  Until now, the company had
considered bankruptcy as its only option.  The anticipated
measures would allow the company to move forward quickly.

Upon completion of the debt financing, the company will have zero
liabilities and be primed for the completion of a merger or
acquisition.  Additional details are expected within the next
couple of weeks.  In addition, plans continue towards legal action
against former officers and directors.


AMERICAN BIO: Reports $167,000 Net Income in June 30 Quarter
------------------------------------------------------------
American Bio Medica Corporation filed its quarterly report on Form
10-Q, reporting net income of $167,000 on $3.1 million of revenue
for the three months ended June 30, 2010, compared with a net loss
of $219,000 on $2.8 million of revenue for the same period last
year.

The Company believes that it may need to raise additional capital
in the future to continue operations.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2010, showed $7.2 million
in total assets, $3.9 million in total liabilities, and
stockholders' equity of $3.3 million.

Following the Company' 2009 results, UHY LLP, in Albany, N.Y.,
expressed substantial doubt about the Company's ability to
continue as a going concern.  The independent auditors noted of
the Company's recurring losses from operations and liquidity
constraints.

BOURLAND & LEVERICH: S&P Assigns Corporate Credit Rating at 'B'
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it assigned its 'B'
corporate credit rating to Pampa, Texas-based Bourland & Leverich
Supply Co. LLC.  The rating outlook is stable.

At the same time, S&P assigned a 'B+' issue-level rating (one
notch above the corporate credit rating) to the company's $125
million senior secured term loan due 2015.  The recovery rating is
'2', indicating the expectation of substantial (70%-90%) recovery
in the event of a payment default.

Proceeds from the term loan, combined with borrowings under the
company's new asset-based revolving credit facility and cash
equity, were used to fund the acquisition of B&L by the
combination of Jefferies Capital Partners, Edgen Murray II L.P.
(B/Negative/--), and other investors.

The rating and outlook reflect S&P's assumption that the company
will sell around 330,000 tons of oil country tubular goods at an
average price of around $1,800 per ton in 2010.  Under these
assumptions, S&P believes Bourland & Leverich will generate around
$55 million in EBITDA during fiscal 2010 compared to around
$123 million during the prior year.

The pro forma capital structure somewhat supports this level of
earnings as S&P expects debt leverage to be about 4x, reflecting
total debt of around $200 million, which includes the $50 million
seller note, at Sept. 30, 2010, the end of the current fiscal
year.  S&P considers this level of debt leverage appropriate for
the rating and expect it to remain at or below that level at least
through 2011.  This is due to S&P's expectation of relatively flat
earnings growth in 2011 amid modestly higher volumes coupled with
some gross margin compression and modest debt reduction.  These
measures are consistent with S&P's financial risk assessment of
aggressive.

"The ratings on Bourland & Leverich reflect what S&P considers to
be the company's vulnerable business risk profile and significant
financial risk profile, including its exposure to the cyclical and
sometimes volatile U.S. oil and gas drilling activity, modest size
and scope, exposure to volatile steel prices, and significant
financial leverage," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Sherwin
Brandford.  "Still, the company benefits from its low capital
spending requirements and relatively good market share in OCTG."


BRISTOW GROUP: S&P Affirms 'BB' Issue-Level Ratings on Unsec. Debt
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its recovery rating on
Bristow Group Inc.'s unsecured debt to '3' from '4', indicating
S&P's expectation for meaningful recovery in the range of 50%-70%
in an event of default.  At the same time, S&P affirmed its 'BB'
issue-level ratings on this debt (the same as the corporate credit
rating).

"The change in the recovery ratings reflects an increase in S&P's
default valuation for Bristow based in part on a shift in S&P's
approach to estimating the default value for the company from an
EBITDA-based valuation to an asset-based valuation," said Standard
& Poor's credit analyst Marc Bromberg.  "While S&P thinks it
likely that the company would continue to operate as a going
concern if it were to default, S&P believes the asset-based
valuation approach, albeit with large discounts to the balance
sheet values, is appropriate given the asset-heavy nature of
Bristow's balance sheet," the analyst continued.  A revised
recovery report for Bristow will be published shortly to more
fully explain S&P's updated recovery analysis.

The corporate credit rating on Bristow Group Inc., a U.S.-based
helicopter services provider, is 'BB', with a stable rating
outlook.  For the corporate credit rating rationale, see the
summary analysis on Bristow published on April 8, 2010.

CENTRIX FINANCIAL: Court Supports Contract Assumption Defense
-------------------------------------------------------------
Addressing an issue of apparent first impression in the Tenth
Circuit, WestLaw reports, a Colorado bankruptcy court joined with
the majority of courts and held that a debtor's payments, made on
an executory contract that was later assumed by the estate, cannot
be recovered through use of the bankruptcy trustee's avoidance
powers.  In other words, the "contract assumption defense" is a
complete bar to the exercise of a trustee's avoidance powers.
Assumption under 11 U.S.C. Sec. 365 is fundamentally inconsistent
with recovery of payments under the avoidance powers.  In re
Centrix Financial, LLC, --- B.R. ----, 2010 WL 3153550 (Bankr. D.
Colo.) (Brown, J.).

Jeffrey A. Weinman, the liquidating trustee of the Centrix
Liquidating Trust, sued (Bankr. D. Colo. Adv. Pro. No. 08-01576)
Allison Payment Systems, LLC, to recover postpetition payments
under a professional services contract and a postage accounts
contract calling under which Allison provided postage metering and
mailing services to the debtor that were made after those
contracts were assumed by Centrix.  The Honorable Elizabeth E.
Brown held that the so-called "contract assumption defense" is a
complete bar to the exercise of a trustee's avoidance powers and
dismissed Mr. Weinman's complaint.

Based in Reno, Nevada, Centrix Financial LLC was a subprime
auto lender.

Three of Centrix Financial's creditors, IFC Credit Corporation,
Suntrust Leasing, and Wells Fargo Equipment Finance, filed an
involuntary chapter 11 petition against the Debtors (Bankr.
D. Colo. Case No. 06-16403) on Sept. 15, 2006, alleging more
than $4.6 million owed.  Lee M. Kutner, Esq., at Kutner Miller,
P.C., and David von Gunten, Esq., at Von Gunten Law LLC,
represent the petitioners.

Centrix and some affiliates filed voluntary Chapter 11
petitions (Bankr. D. Nev. Case No. 06-50631) on Sept. 19,
2006.  CMGN LLC, another affiliate, filed its Chapter 11
petition (Bankr. D. Nev. Case No. 06-50631) on Sept. 4, 2006.

The Debtors' cases were consolidated and transferred (Bankr.
D. Colo. Case No. 06-16403) on Sept. 27, 2006.  Craig D.
Hansen, Esq., Thomas J. Salerno, Esq., and Sean T. Cork, Esq.,
at Squire, Sanders & Dempsey, L.L.P.; and Lawrence Bass,
Esq., and Elizabeth K. Flaagan, Esq., at Holme Roberts & Owen LLP,
represent the Debtors.  The Official Committee of Unsecured
Creditors is represented by Douglas W. Jessop, Esq., and Kerstin
E. Kass, Esq., at Jessop & Company, P.C., and Michael P. Richman,
Esq., at Foley & Lardner LLP.  Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC
is the Debtors' claims agent.  In it Schedules filed with the
Court, Centrix Financial disclosed total assets of $23,928,171
and total debts of $109,189,359.

On February 6, 2007, the Bankruptcy Court authorized the sale of
substantially all of the Debtors' assets.  In late-2007, the
Debtors proposed a liquidating chapter 11 plan, and the Honorable
Elizabeth E. Brown confirmed that plan in early-2008.  The Centrix
Liquidating Trust was created under that chapter 11 plan and
Jeffrey A. Weinman serves as the liquidating trustee.

substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a
going concern, following its 2009 results.  The independent
auditors noted that the Company has planned expansion of business
for 2010 which will require substantial financing.  "In addition,
the Company has incurred substantial net losses and negative cash
flows from operations for the past two years, along with negative
working capital.  There can be no assurance that the Company will
be able to obtain sufficient funding to complete its business
expansion plan or will have sufficient revenues to fund its
operations and commitments."

DBR relates that Chem RX said it and its affiliates have been busy

that will maximize the value of their estates."  Now, those
efforts are close to fruition, with the company indicating it will
introduce a stalking horse and file a bid-procedures motion "in
the near term."  In addition, the company is engrossed in talks
with its first-lien lenders and the committee representing
unsecured creditors regarding how to wrap up the case in the wake
of the sale, according to DBR.

COLONIAL BANCGROUP: FDIC Refund Dispute still Not Resolved
----------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Colonial BancGroup Inc. reached a partial compromise
with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. over who is entitled to
request tax refunds.  In an agreement approved Sept. 3 by the U.S.
Bankruptcy Judge in Montgomery, Alabama, the Colonial holding
company can file a tax return for 2009.  The bankruptcy judge is
also allowing the FDIC, in its role as receiver for the bank
subsidiary, to request a refund for 2009 on behalf of the bank.

According to Mr. Rochelle, pursuant to the partial compromise, any
refunds must be placed in a special escrow account to await court
determination about whether the refunds belong in the Chapter 11
case or in the receivership of the failed bank.

                    About The Colonial BancGroup

CONVERGYS CORP: S&P Gives Stable Outlook; Affirms 'BB+' Rating
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its outlook on
Cincinnati-based Convergys Corp. to stable from negative.  At the
same time, S&P affirmed all ratings, including the 'BB+' corporate
credit rating.

"This rating action is due to the company's improved leverage and
liquidity as it has fully repaid the $400 million of debt
outstanding under its revolving credit facility over the last two
quarters," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Naveen Sarma.  In
addition, the company completed the sale of its human resources
management business, which has been a cash flow drain as well as a
potential management distraction.  Despite the potential for
continued revenue and profitability declines in its remaining
businesses, S&P expects the company to maintain debt to EBITDA
including S&P's adjustment that is substantially lower than the 3x
threshold for its "intermediate" financial risk assessment.
Therefore S&P considers prospects for a downgrade over the next
year to be limited.

The ratings on Cincinnati-based Convergys reflect Standard &
Poor's expectations that company will continue to face pressures
over at least the near term due to continued general economic
softness affecting the customer management business, which
provides call center outsourcing, and the fundamental shift in its
information management business toward a more volatile software
license model.  The company's strong market positions in customer
care and outsourced billing partly offset those factors,
contributing to S&P's overall business risk assessment of "fair."

While the company has improved its profitability recently through
productivity gains, consolidated operating margins, which were
about 5.4% for the second quarter of 2010, excluding restructuring
costs and one-time items, remain below the 9% to 10% area that was
achievable historically.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's view that despite the continued
pressures on revenues and profitability that S&P expects Convergys
to face across its business lines, the company's credit metrics
are likely to remain at levels that are appropriate for the
rating.  Given S&P's current assessment of the business risk
profile as "fair," it is unlikely that S&P would raise the rating
over the next year.  Conversely, absent a leveraging event
resulting in leverage exceeding 3x, or a significant weakening of
the business, it is also unlikely that S&P would lower the rating
over the next year.

ENTERPRISE PRODUCTS: Merger Deal Won't Affect Fitch's Ratings
-------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings believes that the merger of Enterprise Products
Partners L.P. and Enterprise GP Holdings L.P. will have no near-
term impact Enterprise Products Operating LLC's ratings.  In
addition, there is no immediate effect on EPE's ratings.  However,
EPD plans to refinance EPE's outstanding debt, at which time the
ratings will be withdrawn by Fitch.

EPO is the operating partnership for EPD, the largest publicly
traded master limited partnership.  EPE is the publicly traded
owner of EPD's general partner and approximately 3.3% of its
limited partner interests.  EPE also owns both general and limited
partner interests in Energy Transfer Equity, L.P. (Fitch IDR of
'BB-' with a Stable Outlook).  The deal is expected to close by
the end of 2010.

Under the terms of the announced transaction EPE will become a
wholly owned subsidiary of EPD through a unit-for-unit exchange of
1.5 EPD units for each EPE limited partner unit.  The transaction
will result in the cancellation of the 2% economic general partner
interest, the GP incentive distribution rights in EPD, and
approximately 21.6 million EPD common units currently owned by
EPE.  Affiliates of privately-held Enterprise Products Company
will continue to own the general partner of the combined entity.
Certain EPCO affiliates that own 76% of the outstanding EPE units
have agreed to vote their units in favor of the transaction, which
gives the transaction its needed simple majority unit-holder
approval.  In addition, an affiliate of EPCO has agreed to waive
certain of its EPD common unit distributions for a five-year
period which should result in savings of over $275 million of
aggregate cash distributions for the combined partnership.  With
the waived distributions, expectations are that the merger will
not impact expected cash distribution growth rate or near-term
distribution coverage.

Fitch expects the merger to slightly increase EPO's leverage in
the near term with debt-to-adjusted EBITDA expected to be slightly
higher in 2010 than Fitch's previous estimate of 3.8 times,
including 75% equity treatment for EPO and TEPPCO Partners L.P.
(Fitch IDR of 'BBB-) subordinated notes.  Fitch still expects to
see leverage improvement by 2012 as ongoing expansion projects
come online and begin to generate cash returns, absent any new
material capital spending plans.  The primary benefit of the
announced transaction will be to lower EPD's equity cost of
capital due to the elimination of the incentive distribution
rights.  A lower cost of capital should allow EPD to more
competitively pursue growth opportunities.  Additional benefits
include the simplification of the partnership structure and an
expected reduction of general and administrative costs, driven by
the elimination of public company expenses associated with EPE.

Management expects EPD to refinance the approximately $1.1 billion
in outstanding EPE debt.  Fitch would then withdraw its ratings on
EPE as the EPE debt is extinguished.  However, any further rating
action with regard to EPE will only be taken as the details and
timing of EPD's re-financing of EPE's debt are finalized.

Fitch affirmed both EPO's and EPE's ratings on July 30, 2010.  In
its affirmation Fitch cited its belief that EPO's ratings and
Stable Outlook are supported by the quality and diversity of its
sizable asset base and the resulting cash flow performance, as
reflected in strong results in 2009 despite weak natural gas and
natural gas liquids prices.  EPO maintains a high-quality,
diversified midstream asset base, which has exposure to most major
domestic gas producing basins and is complemented by offshore
activities, significant gathering and processing operations and
large-scale transportation assets.  EPO significantly enhanced its
refined products operating base through the acquisition of TPP.
The company continues to increase the fee-based component of its
earnings while attempting to mitigate its commodity price exposure
through an active hedging program.

EPE's current ratings and Stable Outlook are supported by the
diverse and stable cash flows from the underlying asset base, the
benefits of receiving both limited partner and general
distributions, and ownership's long track record of financially
supporting the Enterprise entities.  The debt at EPE currently is
serviced by cash flows from sizable and diverse midstream MLPs.
Through these interests, EPE is exposed to every phase of the
midstream energy business as well as a sizable propane
distribution portfolio.  The underlying MLP ratings reflect the
strength of each partnership's balance sheet as well as the size,
quality and market position of the respective asset bases.

Fitch currently has these ratings on EPO and EPE:

EPO

  -- Issuer Default Rating at 'BBB-';
  -- Senior unsecured at 'BBB-';
  -- Junior subordinated at 'BB'.

EPE

  -- IDR at 'BB-';
  -- Senior secured revolving credit facility at 'BB';
  -- Senior secured term loans at 'BB'.

The Ratings Outlook is Stable for each issuer.

corporate bankruptcies in American business history.  The
company's CCS business offers institutional trustee, agency, asset

FLETCHER GRANITE: Sovereign Rocked on $7MM Quarry Loan
------------------------------------------------------
Tim McLaughlin at Boston Business Journal reports that a division
of Sovereign Bank on the hook for about $7 million following the
bankruptcy filing of Fletcher Granite Company LLC.  The report
relates that Sovereign Business Capital in Princeton, N.J., the
chief creditor in the bankruptcy case, has moved to restructure
about $7 million in financing that was extended in 2006, according
to court papers.

Last month, Fletcher Granite, according to Business Journal sought
bankruptcy court approval for modifying its loan agreement with
Sovereign. The bank has agreed to provide postpetition financing
of up to $417,355 to Fletcher Granite, court papers show.

Fletcher believes its assets will sell for more than the bank
debt.  The quarry business has generated as much as $18 million in
annual revenue in recent years, but slack demand for granite
curbing has hurt operations, according to Business Journal.

Fletcher Granite is a Westford, Mass., company that owns granite
quarries in four states.  The business was founded in the 1880s by
Herbert Ellery Fletcher.  The Fletcher family sold the business in
1986 to Pioneer International plc, a multinational company based
in Australia. In 1999, the company was sold to the current owner.

Fletcher Granite filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on
August 2, 2010 (Bankr. D. Mass. Case No. 10-43884).  David J.
Reier, Esq., and Laura Otenti, Esq., at Posternak Blankstein &
Lund LLP, serve as counsel to the Debtor.  The Debtor estimated
its assets at $10 million to $50 million and debts at $1 million

GENERAL GROWTH: Equity Panel Wants to Raise Weitzman Fee Cap
------------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Equity Security Holders for General
Growth Properties Inc. asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to amend its
order authorizing the panel's retention of The Weitzman Group,
Inc., as its real estate consultant and appraiser, nunc pro tunc
to May 4, 2010, to raise the Fee Cap from $125,000 to $275,000.

Since its retention, TWG has provided valuable real estate
consulting services to the Equity Committee in the amount of
approximately $95,000, John Jerome, Esq., at Saul Ewing LLP, in
New York, tells the Court.  Further services, Mr. Jerome says,
are necessary to assist the Equity Committee and its
professionals with due diligence in connection with certain real
estate assets subject to the contemplated transfer of assets to
newly created "Spinco" under the Plan Debtors' Third Amended
Joint Plan of Reorganization.

In addition, the Equity Committee is participating in the
appraisal process of the Summerlin master planned community
assets, which is the subject of a valuation dispute, Mr. Jerome
avers.  The Equity Committee, he says, anticipates requiring a
higher level of services from TWG than originally anticipated in
connection with the Summerlin valuation process.  Therefore, the
Equity Committee is asking that the Fee Cap be increased from
$125,000 to $275,000 due to the increased time commitment that
the Equity Committee believes will be required of TWG to assist
it with respect to its statutory duties.

The scope of services to be provided by TWG originally requested
and authorized under the Retention Order will remain the same,
Mr. Jerome says.

GENERAL GROWTH: Seeks Approval of ERISA Class Action Settlement
---------------------------------------------------------------
General Growth Properties, Inc., and its debtor affiliates seek
permission from Judge Allan L. Gropper of the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Southern District of New York to enter into a
settlement agreement resolving a class action relating to the
General Growth 401(k) Savings Plan.

As previously reported, Jay R. Barnes, Nathan B. Zable and Dana
Kaminske filed largely identical putative class actions in the
U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois against
GGP, certain GGP entities and committees, and certain current and
former GGP officers, on behalf of the 401(k) Plan and all of its
participants and beneficiaries to recover losses for which the
fiduciaries of the were alleged to be liable pursuant to Sections
409 and 502(a)(2) of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act
of 1974.

In March 2009, those cases were consolidated before Judge James
Zagel of the District Court and the plaintiffs filed a
consolidated class action complaint.  The individual defendants
in the Consolidated ERISA Action are current or former officers
of the Debtors: John Bucksbaum, Bernard Freibaum, Robert A.
Michaels, Judy Herbst, Charles Lhotka, Michelle R. McGovern,
Heather Margulis, Jean Schlemmer, and Kate Sheehy.  On May 6,
2010, the District Court entered an order granting in part and
denying in part the GGP Defendants' motion to dismiss.

The Debtors purchased a fiduciary and employee benefit liability
insurance policy from St. Paul Mercury Insurance Company.  The
Fiduciary Liability Policy affords a $10,000,000 limit of
liability for the policy period from March 1, 2008 to March 1,
2009, which limits are depleted by the Carrier's payment of
defense costs incurred through conclusion of the Consolidated
ERISA Action, as permitted by the Bankruptcy Court-approved
Stipulation Allowing Insurers to Advance Defense Expenses.
The Fiduciary Liability Policy covers "Insured Persons,"
including persons who were, now are, or will be duly elected or
appointed directors, trustees, officers or employees of GGP.

To eliminate uncertainties, burden, and expense of further
litigation, the Debtors, the GGP Defendants and the Plaintiffs
entered into the Settlement Agreement, salient terms of which
are:

  (1) The Settlement Agreement is subject to approval of the
      Bankruptcy Court and District Court.  Pursuant to the
      District Court's August 2010 order, among other things,
      certifying a settlement class, appointing counsel for the
      settlement class and preliminarily approving a proposed
      class settlement, the issuance of class notification is
      commencing and a fairness hearing will be held on
      December 9, 2010, in the District Court.  Under the
      Settlement Agreement, Bankruptcy Court approval is
      required prior to the District Court's fairness hearing.

  (2) Immediately upon the District Court's entry of an order
      preliminarily approving the Settlement Agreement, the GGP
      Defendants will cause the Carrier to deposit $5,750,000 in
      an interest-bearing, settlement fund account to be used as
      the settlement fund to be paid out to settlement class
      members.

  (3) Upon the effective date of the Settlement Agreement, the
      Plaintiffs and each settlement class member, will be
      deemed to have fully released all claims, known or
      unknown, against the GGP defendants and the Carrier, as
      well as related parties including GGP and its affiliates,
      including claims:

      (A) that have been or could have been brought by or on
          behalf of any class member in any litigation;

      (B) which arise out of or relate to the Consolidated ERISA
          Action, any action filed or that could have been filed
          by the Plaintiffs and/or a class member; and

      (C) which arise out of or relate to any allegations, acts,
          omissions, or facts concerning violations of ERISA.

      The Settlement Agreement also includes releases for all
      claims that arise out of, relate to, or are based on
      allegations concerning any failure to provide information
      to the 401(k) Plan's fiduciaries or the participants
      regarding GGP or GGP stock, failures to appoint, remove
      or adequately monitor the 401(k) Plan's fiduciaries,
      conflicts of interest that benefited the GGP Defendants at
      the expense of the participants, and any failure to adhere
      to the duty of loyalty in performing duties to the 401(k)
      Plan.

  (4) Upon the effective date, each of the GGP Defendants will
      be deemed to have fully released the Plaintiffs, each
      member of the settlement class and the 401(k) Plan, from
      all claims arising out of the Consolidated ERISA Action or
      based on the same facts or circumstances alleged in the
      Consolidated ERISA Action.

A full-text copy of the Settlement Agreement is available for
free at http://bankrupt.com/misc/ggp_ERISAActionSettlement.pdf

Adam P. Strochak, Esq., at Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP, in New
York, emphasizes that the Consolidated ERISA Action is highly
complex and its outcome uncertain.  For one, if the Consolidated
ERISA Action is not settled, it is foreseeable that a potential
finding of wrongdoing or liability against the GGP or related
entities may occur, he asserts.  It is also foreseeable that a
potential finding of wrongdoing or liability may occur against
one of the individual GGP Defendants which would give rise to a
claim for indemnification against the Debtors, he points out.
Against this backdrop, resolution of the claims as contemplated
in the Settlement Agreement will have significant litigation cost
savings and will allow the Debtors to resolve those claims
without depleting liquid estate resources, he maintains.

The Debtors further ask the Court to modify the automatic stay
solely to approve the payment of the $5,750,000 settlement payment
out of the Fiduciary Liability Policy.  Without the payment
described in the Settlement Agreement, the individual GGP
Defendants may seek to assert indemnification claims against the
Debtors for adjudicated amounts, Mr. Strochak stresses.  Thus,
modifying the automatic stay will not harm the Debtors' estates,
he assures the Court.

The Debtors also ask the Court to waive the requirements of Rule
4001(a)(3) of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure for the
order granting the requested relief be effective immediately.

The Court will consider the Debtors' request on September 15,
2010.  Objections are due September 10.

---------------------------------------------------------
Glen Rose Petroleum Corporation filed its quarterly report on Form

for the three months ended June 30, 2010, compared with a net loss
of $279,004 on $35,210 of revenue for the three months ended
June 30, 2009.

As of June 30, 2010, the Company had an accumulated deficit of
$52.5 million.  Current liabilities increased from $874,001 at

as compared to working capital of $2.7 million  at March 31, 2010,
a working capital decrease of $1.5 million.  The decrease in
working capital resulted primarily from the cost outlaid to
increase the overall operations and production of the Company.

in total assets, $5.9 million in total liabilities, and
stockholders' equity of $2.3 million.

deficit of $50.9 million as of March 31, 2010.

GSC GROUP: Gets Court's Interim Nod to Use Cash Collateral
----------------------------------------------------------
GSC Group, Inc., et al., sought and obtained interim authorization
from the Hon. Arthur J. Gonzalez of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Southern District of New York to use cash collateral.

As of the Petition Date, the Debtor owed Black Diamond Commercial
Finance, L.L.C., as administrative agent and collateral agent, and
the lenders $209,607,376, secured by the Debtors' assets,
including cash.

Michael B. Solow, Esq., Kaye Scholer LLP, explained that the
Debtors need to use the cash collateral to fund their Chapter 11
case, pay suppliers and other parties.  The Debtors will use the
collateral pursuant to a budget, a copy of which is available for
free at:

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

The use of cash collateral will terminate effective on the earlier
to occur of (a) receipt by the Debtors of written notice from the
Agent of the occurrence and continuance of an Event of Default;
and (b) 11:59 p.m. (prevailing Eastern time) on September 30, 2010
(or such longer period of time as may be consented to by the
Agent).

In exchange for using the cash collateral, the Debtors will grant
the prepetition secured parties valid, perfected and enforceable
continuing replacement security interests and liens in and upon
all prepetition and postpetition assets and properties.  The
Debtors will grant the prepetition secured parties a superpriority
claim over all administrative expense claims and unsecured claims
against the Debtors.  The prepetition secured parties will also
receive, as additional adequate protection, current cash payments
from the Debtors of all fees and expenses payable to the Agent
under the Prepetition Credit Documents.

The Debtors promise to provide the lenders monthly reports.
Within five business days after the end of each two week period,
the Debtors will deliver to the Agent (i) an updated budget, and
(ii) a budget variance report, each in form and substance
reasonably satisfactory to the Agent.

The Court has set a final hearing for September 22, 2010 at

HARRISBURG, PA: Places Services Ahead of Debt Payment
-----------------------------------------------------
Dow Jones' DBR Small Cap reports that several weeks ago, the mayor
of Pennsylvania's capital got word from her interim business
administrator that the city couldn't make an approaching $3.29
million bond payment.  Harrisburg Mayor Linda Thompson and three
cabinet officials tossed out alternatives as they sat around one
end of a long oval table in her conference room.  Lay off police?
Delay paying the light bill?  Ultimately they decided that cutting
basic services to pay debt was out of the question, DBR relates.

"To disrupt [services] because we can't make a bond payment would
just be unconscionable.  And as a leader I couldn't do it," Mayor
Thompson said in an interview last week, after Harrisburg rattled
the municipal-bond market on Aug. 31 with the news, according to
DBR.  "There are always ways to restructure our debt and work out
with our debtors, but you can't have trash piling up in your
neighborhoods. That's a health issue."

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on September 7, 2010,
Dow Jones' DBR Small Cap said elected officials in Harrisburg met
last week Thursday to discuss hiring a bankruptcy adviser and
handing over control of their troubled municipal authority to a
receiver as the city's fiscal problems mount.  As reported by the
TCR on September 1, Harrisburg will skip $3.29 million in debt-
service payments on general obligation debt from 1997 due Sept.
15.  Ambac Assurance Corp., which insures the GO bonds, will meet
payments to investors.

Harrisburg is also struggling with $288 million of debt related to
a failed incinerator revamp.  DBR relates council vice president
Patty Kim said she would create an ad-hoc committee to look into
hiring a financial or legal adviser who could explore a municipal
bankruptcy filing, which Mayor Thompson opposes. "Bankruptcy isn't
the scariest of the options out there," said Councilman Brad
Koplinski.

                       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.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on August 19, 2010,
Harrisburg hired Scott Balice Strategies to help plot a financial
recovery plan.

INNKEEPERS USA: Committee Proposes Info Sharing Protocol
--------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors in Innkeepers USA
Trust's Chapter 11 cases asks U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Shelley
Chapman for an order providing that it is not authorized or
required, pursuant to Section 1102(b)(3)(A) of the Bankruptcy
Code, to provide access to:

      * the Debtors' confidential and other non-public
        proprietary information;

      * its confidential information; or

      * to privileged information, to the creditors it
        represents; and

The Creditors' Committee also asks the Court permission to set and
fix creditor information sharing procedures and protocols.

In connection with the Debtors' efforts to reorganize under
Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code, the Debtors are in the process
of entering into a confidentiality agreement with the Creditors''
Committee pursuant to which the Committee members and its
professionals will be provided with access to certain
confidential, non-public information.

The Debtors and the Creditors' Committee seek clarification that
the duties of the Creditors' Committee under Section 1102(b)(3)
are satisfied by:

  (1) responding promptly to written and telephonic inquiries
      received from the creditors it represents; and

  (2) in the Creditors' Committee's reasonable discretion,
      establishing and maintaining an Internet-accessed Web site
      or an electronic mail address for creditors to submit
      questions and comments to the Creditors' Committee.

Brett H. Miller, Esq., at Morrison & Foerster LLP, in New York --
brettmiller@mofo.com -- asserts that the relief requested will
help ensure that confidential, privileged, proprietary and
material non-public information will not be disseminated to the
detriment of the Debtors' bankruptcy estates and will aid the
Creditors' Committee in performing its statutory functions.

Under the terms of the proposed procedures order, the Creditors'
Committee proposes that it will respond to a general unsecured
creditor's request for information within 30 days.  The response
will provide access to the requested information or reasons why
the information will not be provided.

If the information request is denied because it requests
Confidential Information, or the request is unduly burdensome, the
creditor, after good faith attempts to meet and confer with the
Creditors' Committee, can file a motion requesting that the
information be provided.  In responding to an information request,
the Creditors' Committee will consider certain factors, including
the creditor's willingness to enter into a confidentiality
agreement and trading restrictions.

If the Creditors' Committee agrees that Confidential Information
should be supplied to a general unsecured creditor, it will do so
only if the creditor executes a confidentiality agreement and
pursuant to the proposed procedures.  The Creditors' Committee
may, in its sole discretion, disclose any Committee Confidential
Information, so long as the disclosure does not violate any
confidentiality agreement.

Judge Chapman granted the request.

INNKEEPERS USA: Committee to Probe on Possible Wrongdoing
---------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors for Innkeepers USA
Trust sought the Court's permission to conduct discovery pursuant
to Rule 2004 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure in the
form of document production and witness testimony concerning the
Debtors' business affairs and financial transactions during the
past three years.

The Creditors' Committee, on behalf of itself and all of the
Debtors' other general unsecured creditors, wants to conduct
witness testimony and serve Innkeepers USA Trust, et al., its
current and former controlling shareholder and other creditors
with Rule 2004 document requests to examine prepetition
transactions and conduct of the Debtors and their officers and
trustees, and determine whether there was wrongdoing that harmed
the Debtors.

Brett H. Miller, Esq., at Morrison & Foerster LLP, in New York,
tells the Court that the Creditors' Committee primarily seeks to
examine the transaction in 2007 by which Apollo Investment
Corporation acquired its ownership interest in Innkeepers.  As a
result of the 2007 Transaction, Innkeepers incurred in excess of
$1 billion in debt secured by various hotel properties.  A
significant portion of the funds advanced by the lenders was used
to pay existing equity holders and left Innkeepers in a precarious
financial position.

Mr. Miller explains that the Creditors' Committee intends to
examine the terms of the 2007 Transaction and circumstances
surrounding it.  He adds that the Creditors' Committee wants to
evaluate the validity, priority and extent of all security
interests claimed by the Debtors' major secured creditors to
determine if any deficiencies are present.

Because of the expedited nature of the cases, the Creditors'
Committee asks that the time for parties to respond or object to
formal discovery demands, and the time to produce witnesses for
depositions, be shortened to 14 days from service of the relevant
demand.

                  Request is Moot, Midland Argues

Midland Loan Services, Inc., says it has no opposition to the
Creditors' Committee undertaking discovery in connection with
discharging its duties.  However, in this instance, the request
for discovery against Midland is unnecessary and its request as to
Midland is moot, asserts Lenard Parkins, Esq., at Haynes and
Boone, LLP, in New York.

Mr. Parkins informs the Court that before the response to the
request came due, Midland provided the Creditors' Committee with
an electronic copy of its loan and collateral files, which
comprise of over 200,000 pages of documents.  Hence, Midland
insists that the request is moot and the relief requested from
Midland should be denied as moot.

                 Apollo Suggests Coordination

Apollo Investment Corporation tells Judge Chapman that it does not
object to the request and intends to work cooperatively with the
Creditors' Committee to comply with all reasonable and appropriate
discovery requests.

To that end, Apollo has suggested that the parties coordinate with
the Debtors and amongst themselves regarding document production
and other discovery efforts in connection with the request and
pending and likely contested matters.  Apollo expects to work
constructively with the Creditors' Committee and the other parties
to achieve that goal.

                     Other Parties Respond

Lehman ALI Inc. says it is prepared to consent to reasonable
discovery pursuant to Rule 2004 so long as the scope is not
overbroad and the request is not unduly burdensome.

Hence, Lehman asks that the (i) the scope of discovery sought by
the Creditors' Committee will be narrowed, and (ii) the Creditors'
Committee will be required to first seek production from the
Debtors and Apollo before turning to Lehman, as Lehman's document
production would be mostly if not wholly duplicative of the
document production of the Debtors and Apollo.

Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., says it will endeavor to work with the
Creditors' Committee to appropriately tailor the scope, nature and
timing of the Rule 2004 discovery.

                         *     *     *

The Court granted the request and authorized the Creditors'
Committee to seek discovery from the Debtors and their current and
former shareholder, and certain creditors, including Apollo,
Midland, Lehman, LNR Partners, LLC, CW Capital Asset Management,
LLC, and C-III Asset Management, LLC.

Judge Chapman noted that the authorization in no way limits the
rights of the recipients to object to the Subpoenas and Discovery
Requests consistent with the relevant Federal Rules of Civil
Procedure.

INNKEEPERS USA: Wins Final Approval to Access Cash Collateral
-------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Shelley C. Chapman of the United States Bankruptcy Court for
the Southern District of New York granted, on a final basis, the
request of Innkeepers USA Trust and its 91 Debtor affiliates
to continue to use cash Collateral.

As of March 31, 2010, the Debtors had incurred aggregate funded
secured indebtedness of approximately $1.42 billion, including
approximately $1.29 billion of property-level secured debt, of
which approximately $1.05 billion has been securitized and sold in
the commercial mortgage-backed security market.  The debt is
secured by mortgages on the hotels or pledges of the equity of the
Property Owners.  The Debtors' funded secured debt is comprised of
nine mortgage loans, two with related mezzanine loans, each of
which is secured by distinct hotel properties and related equity
interests in the Property Owners.

The Debtors, according to James H.M. Sprayregen, P.C., Esq., at
Kirkland & Ellis, LLP, in New York, need to use their cash
collateral for a seamless transition into bankruptcy to ensure
they are able to continue operating.  The Debtors need the cash
collateral to honor obligations to parties that provide goods and
services, including their franchisors, employees, hotel management
companies, suppliers of hotel-related goods and services,
utilities, and taxing authorities, Mr. Sprayregen adds.

The Debtors proposed that each group of Debtors under a Tranche of
Debt, and Innkeepers USA Trust, will use Cash Collateral to pay
expenses of operating the Debtors' business and fund the
restructuring materially in accordance with a 13-week forecast
from July 24 to October 16, 2010, a full-text copy of which is
available for free at http://bankrupt.com/misc/ikucashflow.pdf

All objections to the proposed access to cash collateral that have
not been withdrawn or resolved are overruled on their merits.
Those objections include those raised by Midland Loan Services,
Inc., Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., C-III Asset Management LLC and
CWCapital Asset Management LLC.

Judge Chapman noted that the Final Order is without prejudice
(i) to the rights of each of the Fixed Rate Representative, the
Floating Rate Lender, the Anaheim Lender, the Capmark Mission
Valley Lender, the Capmark Garden Grove Lender, the Capmark
Ontario Lender, the Merrill Washington D.C. Lender, the Merrill
Tysons Corner Lender, the Merrill San Antonio Lender, and the
applicable special servicers at any time to seek a modification of
the Final Order, or a different cash collateral order, including a
request for additional or other adequate protection or the
termination of the applicable Debtor's right to use Cash
Collateral, and (ii) to the rights of the Debtors at any time to
seek modification and extension of the Final Order, including an
increased use of Cash Collateral and a modification of adequate
protection.

As adequate protection for any diminution in the value of any
Adequate Protection Party's interest in the Prepetition Collateral
securing obligations owing to it during the Cash Collateral Period
and effective as of the Petition Date, the Debtors will pay or
reimburse the Representatives' necessary expenses.

To the extent of any Adequate Protection Obligations arising under
any Tranche of Debt, the applicable Adequate Protection Party will
receive a perfected replacement lien and security interest in and
valid, binding, enforceable and perfected liens on all of the
applicable Debtor's rights in deposits of Cash Collateral in the
Master Account and rights under all present and after-acquired
property and assets that would constitute Prepetition Collateral
of the Adequate Protection Party.

As further adequate protection for any Adequate Protection
Obligations, the applicable Adequate Protection Party will have an
administrative expense claim against the Debtors with obligations
arising under the applicable Tranche of Debt under Section 507(b)
of the Bankruptcy Code with priority over all other administrative
expense claims and unsecured claims against the Debtors.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: JPMorgan Asks for Dismissal of Lawsuit
-------------------------------------------------------
JPMorgan Chase Bank N.A. has filed a motion to dismiss the
lawsuit by Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc., which accused the bank
of helping push the company into bankruptcy.

In court papers, JPMorgan says it was the only major bank that
continued to extend credit to LBHI's broker-dealer unit, Lehman
Brothers Inc., when the company was in the verge of collapse.

"JPMorgan typically extended more than $100 billion in credit
each day to LBI for the settlement and clearance of its
securities transactions," says Paul Vizcarrondo Jr., Esq., at
Wachtell Lipton Rosen & Katz, in New York.

JPMorgan is the primary clearing bank of LBI, which was
eventually sold to U.K.-based Barclays Capital Inc. after LBHI
and its affiliates filed for bankruptcy protection in September
2008.

"JPMorgan's willingness to continue making clearing advances to
LBI during those tumultuous days when it had every right to
refuse to do so allowed LBI to keep operating and made possible
the sale of LBI's business and assets to Barclays Capital," Mr.
Vizcarrondo says.

Except for the $8.6 billion that was posted as collateral,
JPMorgan did not require additional collateral even if it
continued extending credit after the bankruptcy filing, according
to the lawyer.  JPMorgan also agreed to step into the trades of
other parties that would no longer do business with LBHI "while
other financial players were running for the exits," Mr.
Vizcarrondo further says.

LBHI sued JPMorgan to recover the $8.6 billion that it seized as
collateral, of which $5 billion in cash was allegedly extracted
from the company on its final business day.  JPMorgan allegedly
threatened to discontinue its services unless the company posted
excessive collateral.

The lawsuit came two months after an examiner who was appointed
to investigate into what caused LBHI's bankruptcy published the
results of his investigation.

The examiner found colorable claims against JPMorgan in
connection with its demands for collateral in the final days of
LBHI.  The demands for collateral had direct impact on LBHI's
liquidity pool, according to the examiner.

Many investment bankers also believe that JPMorgan should have
been less heavy-handed with LBHI because by demanding so much
money up front, it depleted the company of needed cash and caused
its other creditors to demand collateral and stop lending to the
company.

JPMorgan, however, argued that the examiner's report makes clear
that it was not the conduct by the bank but the "ill-advised"
decision of LBHI to take on perilous leverage and to double-down
on subprime mortgages and overpriced commercial real estate that
led to its collapse.

                JPMorgan, et al., Ink Stipulation

In a related development, JPMorgan inked a stipulation with LBHI,
the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors and the Federal
Reserve Bank of New York to protect the confidentiality of
"sensitive information" that may be shared in connection with the
lawsuit.

Wachtell Lipton will present the stipulation to Judge James Peck
for signature on September 10, 2010.  A full-text copy of the
stipulation is available without charge at:

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

Judge Peck earlier approved a similar stipulation among JPMorgan,
LBHI and the Creditors Committee.  The provisions in the initial
agreement were incorporated in the new stipulation with the
Federal Reserve.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: LBI SIPA Trustee Files Preliminary Report
----------------------------------------------------------
"Lehman Brothers, Inc.'s liquidation arose from the chaos of a
failed attempt by its management to save the firm by either
raising capital and selling targeted assets, or finding a buyer
that would buy all or most of the enterprise," James W. Giddens,
as the Securities Investor Protection Act Trustee for the
liquidation of Lehman Brothers Inc., stated in a preliminary
report and recommendation delivered to the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the Southern District of New York in the last week of August
2010.

The Preliminary Report concludes that, at least until relatively
late in the day when panic and confusion set in, LBI's compliance
with the regulatory requirements designed for the protection of
customer property was good, and the requirements largely had the
effect they were supposed to have.  With a few important
exceptions, the SIPA Trustee said most customer property was
intact and accessible for satisfaction of customer claims or
transfer to other brokers -- precisely the purpose of the
regulations.  This, he said, was particularly true of the
customer property located in the United States; obtaining that
which was or should have been held in foreign depositories has
proved more challenging and has met with less immediate success.

The SIPA Trustee also related that for the most part, the SIPA
also worked well, permitting implementation of the largest
account transfers in history.  Those transfers provided nearly
seamless treatment to the vast majority, though regrettably not
all, of LBI customers, avoiding loss and disruption to them and
the market as a whole, he said.

The remaining claims, though small in relation to the number and
value of accounts transferred, have nevertheless generated a
claims process which is by far the largest and most complex in
the history of SIPA or broker-dealer liquidations generally.  The
SIPA Trustee noted that administration of any of the four
remaining groups of claims -- accounts not included in the
Private Investment Management or Private Asset Management ranges
of transferred accounts for a variety of reasons, certain prime
brokerage accounts, claims under the Lehman Brothers
International (Europe)/LBI omnibus account through which LBI
served as U.S. clearing broker for LBIE and its customers, and
claims by LBHI and other Lehman affiliates -- would each in
itself dwarf virtually any previous broker-dealer liquidation.

Some of the lessons learned and problems discussed in the Report
relate to the particular structure of Lehman's transaction with
Barclays Capital Inc.  The transaction agreed to by the holding
company left LBI, a defunct broker-dealer, sandwiched between, on
the one hand, LBHI, a holding company entering Chapter 11 with a
desire to shed liabilities and retain businesses and assets; and,
on the other, an entity selectively acquiring some customer
accounts and buying some assets while seeking to de-risk the
transaction.

While another major liquidation might differ in detail, Lehman,
the SIPA Trustee said, presents a cautionary tale on the
unexpected dangers inherent in this structure.  The Lehman
experience, he pointed out, underscores the need for better
information, better planning, and better communication, whether
in a stand-alone SIPA liquidation or as part of a liquidation
involving a Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation takeover of
some assets under the new financial authority legislation.

In general, with some exceptions, the SIPA Trustee said he has
been regularly disappointed in the performance and attitudes of
many entities with which he has had to interact or which hold LBI
property or information.  While there have been professions of
cooperation, 'deeds have spoken louder than words,' he said.  "In
too many cases, the deeds have shown a pattern of delay,
incomplete information and creation of obstacles."

The SIPA Trustee Report contains eight principal specific
recommendations and ideas for further consideration:

  1. More pre-liquidation disaster planning, both on an
     individual broker-dealer and industry-wide basis, including
     what a brokerdealer's "living will" and emergency plan
     should include to alleviate the type of information gap
     which has confronted the Trustee in the LBI liquidation.

  2. Proposals for more robust and earlier pre-liquidation
     negotiation and focus by liquidators and regulators on the
     mechanics and consequences of transactions including
     partial customer account transfers.  Specifically,
     attention needs to be paid to provisions for access to
     assets, information systems and people, including a
     possible requirement of judicial findings on some of these
     issues prior to approval of transactions and extending the
     time for settling transactions after the filing date.

  3. Balancing clearing banks' and others' safe harbor rights
     against the needs for transparency and respect for broker
     dealers' obligations to segregate customer property in
     order to prevent denial of access to screens and seizure of
     that which should be segregated customer property.

  4. Study of clearing agencies' emergency rules so that the
     rules function as expected in emergencies, the operation
     and consequences of the emergency rules are better
     understood and the results strike the proper balance among
     competing interests.

  5. Suggestions for possible reconsideration of the unitary
     nature of the fund of customer property in favor of funds
     tailored to different forms of accounts, to correspond to
     customer expectations and differences in account
     relationships.

  6. Increasing SIPC's financial resources and borrowing
     authority in a prudent way that minimizes taxpayer costs,
     but adds flexibility in the purposes for which those
     financial resources could be used.

  7. Recommendations for short term reinstatement of the
     automatic stay with provision for SIPC and a SIPA trustee
     to consent to relief to permit prompt liquidation of
     collateral and return of excess or marking to market to
     cure deficiencies.

  8. Rational rules for unwinding outstanding non-customer
     financial transactions on terms that protect both the
     broker-dealer's estate and counterparties while providing
     certainty and reducing costs.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Merit LLC Wants Plan Exclusivity Until February
----------------------------------------------------------------
Merit LLC and two other debtor affiliates of Lehman Brothers
Holdings Inc. ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of New York to extend the period during which they have
exclusive right to file and solicit votes for their restructuring
plans.

In a motion, Merit LLC, LB Somerset LLC and LB Preferred Somerset
LLC seek to extend the deadline for filing their Chapter 11 plans
to February 15, 2011, and for soliciting votes to that Plan to
April 15, 2011.

The Lehman units only sought for bankruptcy protection in
December 2009 or more than a year after LBHI and its other
affiliates filed their bankruptcy cases.

Jacqueline Marcus, Esq., at Weil Gotshal & Manges LLP, in New
York, says the Lehman units will spend the next five months to
finalize a settlement with Somerset Associates LLC and Somerset
Properties SPE LLC, and to engage in talks with other creditors.

The Somerset entities earlier blocked court approval to extend
the deadline for LB Somerset and LB Preferred to file their
restructuring plans, saying they lack equity in their property
and that their restructuring plan cannot be confirmed.

Somerset Associates holds claims in the sum of $5,090,609 against
each of the Lehman units, which claims stemmed from the Lehman
units' failure to fulfill their obligations under an operating
agreement with Falls of Neuse Investments LLC.  The agreement was
hammered out after FNI and the Lehman units formed Somerset
Associates to acquire a real property in Raleigh, North Carolina.

The Court will consider the proposed extension at the hearing
scheduled for September 22, 2010.  Deadline for filing objections
is September 15, 2010.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Proposes Compromise With SunCal Debtors
--------------------------------------------------------
Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. and its units ask the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York to approve
a settlement pursuant to terms set forth in an amended and
restated term sheet by and among:

  (a) Lehman Commercial Paper, Inc., on its own behalf and as
      agent for the First Lien Lenders;

  (b) Alfred H. Siegel, the Chapter 11 trustee of the estates of
      LBREP/L-SunCal Master I, LLC, and LBREP/L-SunCal
      McAllister Ranch, LLC, LBREP/L-SunCal McSweeny Farms, LLC,
      and LBREP/L-SunCal Summerwind Ranch, LLC, which are being
      jointly administered under Case No. 08-15588 in the United
      States Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of
      California; and

  (c) the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors in the
      SunCal Bankruptcy Cases.

In 2006 and 2007, LBREP/L-SunCal Master I, LLC -- the SunCal
Parent -- borrowed a total of $395 million through certain credit
agreements with LCPI, as agent and lender.  The SunCal Parent's
obligations under the credit agreements were secured by first and
second liens against certain of SunCal's properties.

On September 10, 2008, involuntary Chapter 11 cases were filed
against the SunCal Debtors.  On or about October 9, 2009, the
SunCal Trustee filed a motion in the SunCal Bankruptcy Cases
seeking the approval of a settlement pursuant to the terms of an
original term sheet by and among LCPI, the SunCal Trustee, and
the SunCal Committee.  Following the filing of the Original
Settlement Motion, a dispute arose between LCPI, on the one hand,
and the SunCal Trustee and the SunCal Committee, on the other
hand, regarding the interpretation of a provision in the Original
Term Sheet.  The parties were initially unable to resolve their
differences.

As suggested by the Southern New York Bankruptcy Court, the
parties resumed negotiations, resolve their differences, reached
a settlement, and executed an Amended Term Sheet.

Under the Amended Term Sheet, the properties used as the First
Lien Lenders' collateral will be sold through a plan of
reorganization, subject to LCPI's right to credit bid.  The
SunCal Trustee and the SunCal Committee have agreed, among other
things, that:

  (a) the First Lien Lenders will have an allowed secured claim
      in the SunCal Bankruptcy Cases equal to the proceeds
      realized by them from the sale of the Properties plus
      certain cash proceeds to be remitted to the First Lien
      Lenders by the SunCal Trustee after each amount is
      adjusted to account for certain "carve outs" and
      obligations;

  (b) the First Lien Lenders will have an allowed general
      unsecured claim in the SunCal Bankruptcy Cases in the
      amount of their deficiency claims; and

  (c) the SunCal Trustee, the SunCal Committee and the SunCal
      Debtors' estates will provide broad releases to the First
      Lien Lenders, LCPI, and their officers, directors,
      employees, agents and attorneys.

In return, LCPI on its own behalf and as agent for the First Lien
Lenders, has agreed that certain of the First Lien Lenders' cash
collateral will be "carved out" for the benefit of the
administration of the SunCal Debtors' estates, and that certain
other cash collateral held by the SunCal Debtors may be used to
preserve the Properties until sale.  In addition, the First Lien
Lenders have agreed to share with the unsecured, non-lender
creditors in the SunCal Bankruptcy Cases a portion of the
proceeds from the sale of the Properties and certain litigation
recoveries.

Specifically, upon approval of the amended term sheet in both
bankruptcy courts, the SunCal Debtors' estates will receive
$5.5 million in cash.  Of this sum, $3.5 million will be available
for use by the SunCal Trustee to administer the SunCal Debtors'
cases and to pursue the SunCal Debtors estates' claims against
other third parties.  The remaining $2.0 million will be used by
the SunCal Trustee to maintain and preserve the Properties'
pending sale with any unused residual amount to be transferred to
the First Lien Lenders after the sale of the Properties has
closed.

Also, through the SunCal Debtors' plan of reorganization
contemplated under the Amended Term Sheet, the proceeds of any
other recoveries by the SunCal Trustee excluding proceeds from
the sale of the Properties and certain funds currently on deposit
with the Yucaipa Valley Water District will be split 50/50
between (a) the First Lien Lenders on account of their unsecured
deficiency claims, and (b) the SunCal Debtors' estates for
distribution to the SunCal Debtors' unsecured non-lender
creditors.

The SunCal Debtors' estates will also be entitled to 3.5% of any
net recovery from the sale of the Properties to a third party,
whether through the plan or subsequently by LCPI after a credit
bid.  The Amended Term Sheet recognizes that there could be
mechanics liens encumbering the Property that are senior to the
lien of the First Lien Lenders.  To the extent title insurance is
not available to cover those claims, those senior mechanics
liens, if any, will either be paid from the proceeds of a third
party sale of the Properties, or in the event of an LCPI credit
bid, will remain a lien on the Properties.  In essence, the 3.5%
recovery for the SunCal Debtors estate comes out of the sale
proceeds otherwise payable to the First Lien Lenders.

LCPI believes that the concessions it made under the Amended Term
Sheet are reasonable in view of the benefits it will derive from
the amended terms.

The Southern New York Bankruptcy Court will convene a hearing on
September 22 to consider approval of the request.  Objections are
due no later than September 15.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Proposes Settlement With Aurora Bank
-----------------------------------------------------
Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. and its affiliated debtors seek
court approval of a settlement with Aurora Bank FSB that would
further pave the way for regulatory approval of the bank's
business plan.

The settlement deal calls for the transfer to Aurora Bank of
$577 million in cash and another $409.3 million worth of assets,
and the resolution of claims stemming from inter-company
transactions in consideration of the capital transfer.

The deal also requires LBHI to pay additional cash of
$14.4 million to Aurora Bank to settle certain claims and up to
$10.6 million, the exact amount of which is yet to be negotiated.

In exchange, Aurora Bank agreed to return $293.7 million worth of
assets that were posted as collateral under a 2008 master forward
agreement.  The assets consist of commercial loans owed to LBHI
and its affiliates.

Aurora Bank's $2.1 billion claim against LBHI for the company's
alleged breach of the MFA will also be expunged upon court
approval of the settlement.

The resolution of the $2.1 billion claim is an important aspect
of the settlement because it would pave the way for the lifting
of certain regulatory restrictions, which the Office of Thrift
Supervision imposed on Aurora Bank's operations due to its
diminishing capital level.

Aurora Bank's total capital is expected to exceed $825 million
after the settlement deal takes effect.  The deal is formalized
in a 28-page agreement, a copy of which is available for free at:

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

The settlement would allow Aurora Bank to expand its operations
and pursue a business plan to prepare the bank for a possible
sale within 18 months, according to LBHI's lawyer, Alfredo Perez,
Esq., at Weil Gotshal & Manges LLP, in Houston, Texas.  He adds
that LBHI would realize a return on its equity in Aurora Bank if
the latter is sold.

Aurora Bank's June 30, 2010 regulatory filing reported the value
of LBHI's equity interest in the bank at $677.6 million.

Aurora Bank will be put up for a sale either to a third party or
through a public share offering, according to a September 2
report by Financial Times.

Douglas Lambert, a managing director at restructuring firm
Alvarez & Marsal, says Aurora Bank would be perfect for a large
foreign bank looking to enter the U.S. market like Banco
Santander.  He says LBHI had not yet had discussions with
Santander or other potential buyers, Financial Times reported.

                        Other Agreements

In connection with the settlement, LBHI seeks the Court's
authority to enter into a capital maintenance agreement and a new
tax allocation agreement with Aurora Bank.

The CMA calls for LBHI to inject fund to Aurora Bank to maintain
its 11% or 15% capital level in case the bank's capital falls
below that level.  A full-text copy of the CMA is available for
free at http://bankrupt.com/misc/LBHI_CMAAuroraBank.pdf

The other agreement requires Aurora Bank to make payments to LBHI
as if the bank were a separate taxpayer and requires LBHI to make
payments to Aurora Bank to compensate the bank for its losses or
credits.  A full-text copy of the agreement is available for free
at http://bankrupt.com/misc/LBHI_NTAAurora.pdf

LBHI also wants to extend the terms of an amended repurchase
agreement and financing facility for the duration of its
ownership of Aurora Bank and the bank's servicing subsidiary,
Aurora Loan Services LLC.  The proposed extension is required by
the OTS and is a condition to approval of the settlement deal.

The company also seeks approval to contribute to Aurora Bank a
portfolio of its servicing rights of about 33,000 residential
mortgage loans.

The Court will consider approval of LBHI's request at a hearing
scheduled for September 22, 2010.  Deadline for filing objections
is September 15, 2010.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Proposes Settlement With Woodlands
---------------------------------------------------
Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. and its affiliated debtors seek
court approval of a settlement of claims with Woodlands
Commercial Bank.

Woodlands Commercial is a Utah-based chartered industrial bank
owned by LBHI's subsidiary, Lehman Brothers Bancorp Inc.

The settlement deal calls for the transfer of $75 million in cash
to Woodlands, and the cancellation of LBHI's participation rights
to the first $200 million recovered from Woodlands' customer
claim against Lehman Brothers Inc.

Woodlands filed the customer claim for the undelivered municipal
bond securities, which it purchased through LBI.  The buy-out and
LBI's alleged failure to segregate the securities, which were
taken by its clearing bank JPMorgan purchase, reportedly caused
the decline in Woodlands' capital level.

LBHI was granted participation in the customer claim in exchange
for the $200 million it provided to Woodlands in 2009 to raise
the bank's capital level, which at that time was at risk of being
seized and liquidated by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.

The settlement deal also requires Woodlands to release its
security interest in assets that were posted as collateral under
a security agreement with LBHI's affiliated debtor, Luxembourg
Residential Properties Loan Finance Sarl.  The assets will be
returned to Luxembourg Residential and the security agreement
will be cancelled.

The settlement is formalized in a 22-page agreement, a copy of
which is available for free at:

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

In connection with the settlement, LBHI also seeks court approval
to execute a capital maintenance agreement and a new tax
allocation agreement with Woodlands.

The CMA requires LBHI to provide fund to Woodlands to maintain
the bank's capital at the 11% or 15% level for the duration of
LBHI's ownership or control of the bank.

The other agreement addresses tax matters between Woodlands and
LBHI for the year beginning January 1, 2010, and for all
subsequent taxable years in which Woodlands is included in the
federal consolidated returns or state combined returns with LBHI
and other members of the affiliated group.

Copies of the agreements are available without charge at:

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

During the 18-month period following the effective date of the
CMA and while Woodlands is implementing its orderly wind-down,
LBHI will be authorized to market the bank for sale, according to
LBHI's lawyer, Alfredo Perez, Esq., at Weil Gotshal & Manges LLP,
in Houston, Texas.

In case Woodlands is not sold, LBHI will be required to purchase
the bank's remaining non-cash assets while Woodlands will pay off
its remaining deposit liabilities, if any, Mr. Perez says.

The Court will consider approval of LBHI's request at a hearing
scheduled for September 22, 2010.  Deadline for filing objections
is September 15, 2010.

LONE TREE: Gets Interim Nod to Sell Homes & Residential Lots
------------------------------------------------------------
Lone Tree Investments, LLC, et al., sought and obtained interim
authorization from the Hon. Redfield T. Baum, Sr., of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Arizona to continue selling
homes and residential lots.

Proceeds received by the Debtors, after payment of commissions,
closing costs, and other expenses will be held in a segregated
account until such time as their use is authorized by Johnson Bank
or court order.

Pursuant to a construction loan agreement, dated June 26, 2008,
with the Debtors, Johnson Bank agreed to advance to the Debtors as
much as $25,000,000.  The documents executed by the Debtors in
connection with the Johnson loan establish a regime whereby 75% of
the gross proceeds generated through the sale of any portion of
the Pine Canyon subject to Johnson's lien is transferred to
Johnson.

Lot 46 of Tract 21, Amended Final Plat of Mountain Villas at Pine
Canyon, will not be sold without the consent of Wespac
Communities, Inc., or its designee, or a court order.

The Court has set a hearing for September 23, 2010 at 1:30 p.m. on
the Debtors' request to sell homes and residential lots.

Lone Tree Investments LLC owns and operates the residential
community, golf course, and related facilities commonly known as
Pine Canyon in Flagstaff, Arizona.  Lone Tree, together with five
affiliates, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on August
24, 2010 (Bankr. D. Ariz. Lead Case No. 10-26776).  John J.

LONE TREE: Gets Court's Interim Nod to Obtain DIP Financing
-----------------------------------------------------------
Lone Tree Investments, L.L.C., et al., sought and obtained interim
authorization from the Hon. Redfield T. Baum, Sr., of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Arizona to incur up to
$1,000,000 in revolving indebtedness to Flagstaff Acquisitions,
L.L.C.

The Debtors are allowed to request that funds be advanced under
the Postpetition Advance, as many times as is necessary, so long
as the balance owing to Lender never exceeds $1,000,000.  Any
funds advanced as part of the postpetition advance will be secured
by a first-position lien on the Debtors' property, priming the
lien of Johnson Bank on the Property.  According to the Debtors'
records, no creditors hold a security interest in the Property
other than Johnson.

John J. Hebert, Esq., Polsinelli Shughart PC, explained that the
Debtors need the money to fund their Chapter 11 case, pay
suppliers and other parties.

The DIP facility will mature on November 30, 2010.  The DIP
facility will incur interest at 15% per annum.

About 75% of the net proceeds generated through the sale of any of
the Property will be remitted to Lender (to a maximum of the
amount then due to Lender) and applied to the outstanding balance,
the remaining 25% (or higher amount) will be remitted to Johnson,
presuming that the sale is of property that is part of Johnson's
collateral.

The Court has set a final hearing for September 23, 2010, at
1:30 p.m. on the Debtors' request to obtain DIP financing.

More information on the DIP financing is available for free at:

MEXICANA AIRLINES: ASUR Updates Impact of Firm's Suspension
-----------------------------------------------------------
Grupo Aeroportuario del Sureste, S.A.B. de C.V. disclosed on
September 7, 2010 that Compania Mexicana de Aviacion, S.A. de C.V.
has been granted bankruptcy protection and that Mexicana Inter,
S.A. de C.V. and Aerovias Caribe, S.A. de C.V. have also filed for
bankruptcy protection.

Mexicana, Aerovias Caribe and Mexicana Link, which operated in all
of ASUR's airports with the exception of Tapachula, represented
10.88% of the Company's revenues for the eight month period ended
August 31, 2010, primarily from domestic passengers.

ASUR estimates that Ps.132.54 million in accounts receivable could
be at risk of not being recovered as of August 31, 2010.  As a
result, during the third quarter of fiscal year 2010 ASUR will
make corresponding provisions for each of the three companies
through which Grupo Mexicana operated.

ASUR believes that the majority of the routes operated by Grupo
Mexicana were also operated by other carriers and thus the
ultimate impact from the suspension of operations will not be in
the same proportion as the number of flights cancelled.  However,
the Company cannot be sure that competing carriers will seek to
increase their flight schedules or of the impact that this could
have on the Company's business and results of operations, which
could be adversely affected if traffic does not migrate to its
other airline customers.

Below is a table with the number of routes operated by Grupo
Mexicana before its suspension of operations on August 28, 2010
and the number of other airlines currently flying each of those
routes.

METROPCS WIRELESS: Moody's Assigns 'B2' Rating on $500 Mil. Notes
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has assigned a B2 rating to MetroPCS
Wireless, Inc.'s proposed issuance of $500 million of Senior
Unsecured Notes due 2018, the proceeds of which will fund the
coincident tender offer for its existing 9.25% Senior Unsecured
Notes, currently due in November of 2014.  The B2 rating reflects
the senior unsecured status of the notes and subsidiary guarantees
and is consistent with the ratings for MetroPCS's other existing
senior unsecured debt.  Moody's has also affirmed the Company's
existing ratings, including the B1 Corporate Family Rating, as
outlined below.  The affirmations reflect Moody's expectations for
continued strong operating performance and solid liquidity over
the next 12-18 months.  The rating outlook is stable.

Despite a very challenging market environment, MetroPCS has seen a
meaningful improvement in subscriber growth during the first half
of 2010 and churn has fallen sharply to just 3.5% for the six
months ended June 30, 2010 from 5.4% for the prior year period.
This reduction in churn combined with the benefits of increased
scale, has resulted in strong margin performance despite ongoing
competitive pressure on voice pricing.  Capital expenditures are
expected to remain relatively flat as the Company's network
upgrade to LTE continues.  Robust revenue growth, fueled by
Moody's expectation for continued subscriber growth, relatively
stable ARPU (albeit at levels modestly lower than the $39.84 in 2Q
2010)and margin strength is expected to lead to meaningful free
cash flow generation in the future.  MetroPCS is launching LTE
service later this year and Moody's believe that higher revenue
data plans (in addition to various premium voice services) will
offset some of the pricing pressure on basic voice service.

Offsetting these favorable attributes, however, MetroPCS remains a
relatively small player in a highly competitive market that is
nearing saturation for voice services.  As new subscribers are
primarily those captured from competitors, the Company has been
forced to increase spending on handsets to attract and retain
subscribers.  Higher handset subsidies, including those related to
the increasing demand for smartphones, could pressure the
company's operating margins if the competitive pressure to
subsidize expensive handsets accelerates.

The proposed offering follows a similar refinancing of debt in
July.  After this action is complete, MetroPCS will have staggered
its debt maturity into more digestible pieces.  Based on this
improved maturity profile, Moody's anticipates that MetroPCS will
be in a position to retire debt upon maturity with internally
generated cash or cash on hand through 2015.  Moody's Senior Vice
President, Dennis Saputo, said "By proactively addressing the
looming maturity of two large debt issues, MetroPCS has laid a
base for a stable capital structure through 2015."

Moody's has taken these rating actions:

  -- Corporate Family Rating, Affirmed B1

  -- Probability of Default Rating, Affirmed B1

  -- Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility, Affirmed Ba1, LGD-2
     (19%)

  -- New Senior Unsecured Notes, B2, LGD-5 (75%)

  -- Existing Senior Unsecured Notes, Affirmed B2, LGD-5 (75%)

Outlook Actions:

  -- Outlook, Affirmed Stable
  -- Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating -- Affirmed SGL-1

Going forward, Moody's will pay close attention to the trends for
churn, net adds, handset subsidies and EBITDA margin.  Sustained
performance at or above the levels achieved in the first six
months of 2010, combined with Moody's expectation of resultant
lower leverage and higher interest coverage could lead to positive
rating action.

Moody's most recent rating action for MetroPCS was on July 2,
2010, when Moody's affirmed the Ba1 rating on the Company's
Amended Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility.

MetroPCS is a wholly owned subsidiary of MetroPCS Communications,
Inc., which provides unlimited use wireless service for a flat
monthly fee with no signed contract in major metropolitan markets
of the U.S. MetroPCS Communications, Inc., is based in Dallas,
Texas.


METROPCS WIRELESS: S&P Puts B Issue-Level Rating on $500MM Notes
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned MetroPCS Wireless
Inc.'s proposed $500 million senior unsecured notes due 2018 its
issue-level rating of 'B' (at the same level as the 'B' corporate
credit rating on parent company MetroPCS Communications Inc.).
The recovery rating on this debt is '4', indicating S&P's
expectation of average (30%-50%) recovery for noteholders in the
event of a payment default.  The company plans to use proceeds
primarily to purchase a comparable amount of its existing 9.25%
senior notes due 2014.

Richardson, Texas-based MetroPCS Communications' overall leverage,
which is 4.3x on a rolling-12-month basis (including S&P's
adjustments) through June 30, 2010, will not change as a result of
this transaction, although S&P expects the refinancing to modestly
improve the company's overall interest costs.

The corporate credit rating on MetroPCS is 'B' and the rating
outlook is positive.  The rating reflects a challenging business
model that targets lower income customers, a highly competitive
environment, and aggressive debt leverage.

MIKE TYSON: S.D.N.Y. Reverses Gibralter Veil-Piercing Ruling
------------------------------------------------------------
Under English law, WestLaw reports, the corporate form of a
Gibraltar shell corporation assigned the international
distribution rights for a boxing match involving a Chapter 11
debtor-former world heavyweight boxing champion could not be
pierced to hold liable for the corporation's obligations parties
that were legally unrelated to the corporation.  It did not matter
if those parties, consisting of a British boxing promoter, his
British partnership and corporate minority partner, and the
partnership's chief executive officer, used the corporation as a
facade concealing true facts, given the absence of statutory
authority authorizing such relief.  Additionally, the New York
district court ruled on an appeal from a bankruptcy court
decision, the Gibraltar corporation's corporate veil could not be
pierced under English law where, at the time the corporation was
introduced to the transaction, the parties to be held liable had
not yet incurred any legal obligations to the debtor-boxer or the
Kentucky promoters with respect to the sale of the international
rights, and the existence of the corporation was not concealed
from the debtor-boxer or the Kentucky promoters.  In re Michael G.
Tyson, --- B.R. ----, 2010 WL 2925112 (S.D.N.Y.) (Cote, J.).

Adv. Pro. No. 05-02210), and potentially entitles Mr. Tyson to
more than $1 million from a professional heavyweight boxing match
held on July 30, 2004, in Louisville, Ky., between Mr. Tyson and
Danny Williams.

Professional boxer and former world heavyweight champion Michael
G. Tyson sought protection under Chapter 11 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case
No. 03-41900) on Aug. 1, 2003, along with Mike Tyson Enterprises,

NASHVILLE SENIOR: Stays Required When Co-Owned Property Is Sold
---------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that the U.S. Court of Appeals in Cincinnati ruled on
Sept. 3 that when a bankruptcy judge approves the sale of co-owned
property, the non-bankrupt owner must obtain a stay pending
appeal; otherwise the appeal will be dismissed.

The case -- Official Creditors' Committee v. Anderson Senior
Living Property LLC (In re Nashville Senior Living LLC), 09-5812,
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit (Cincinnati) --
involved nursing homes partly owned by a company in Chapter 11
under a form of ownership known as tenants in common.  The
co-owners, or tenants in common, were creditors.

According to Mr. Rochelle, the co-owners appealed after the
bankruptcy judge authorized sale of both the bankrupt company's
interest and the interest of the tenants in common.  The
bankruptcy appellate panel had affirmed. The Sixth Circuit in
Cincinnati, which upheld the lower courts, was dealing with
Section 363(m) of the Bankruptcy Code which says that a sale of a
bankrupt's property can't be challenged on appeal unless the order
authorizing the sale is stayed pending appeal. The co-owners
sought but were refused a stay pending appeal.

Mr. Rochelle says that the circuit court found no reason why the
requirement for a stay should apply only to cases where the
bankrupt has full ownership. If 363(m) doesn't apply, the appeals
court said, it is "unlikely any purchaser would agree to the sale
of co-owned property."

Nashville Senior Living, LLC, sought Chapter 11 protection (Bankr.
M.D. Tenn. Case No. 08-07254) on August 17, 2008, reporting less
than $1 million in assets and liabilities.  Seven affiliates --
see http://is.gd/17gmrand http://is.gd/17gp9-- contemporaneously
filed Chapter 11 petitions, each estimating up to $10 million in
assets and up to $100 million in liabilities.  Robert A. Guy,
Esq., at Waller Lansden Dortch & Davis, in Nashville, represents
the Debtor.


NATIONAL AUTOMATION: Incurs $819,500 Net Loss in June 30 Quarter
----------------------------------------------------------------

Form 10-Q, reporting a net loss of $819,527 on $948,127 of revenue
for the three months ended June 30, 2010, compared with a net loss
of $1.1 million on $751,574 of revenue for the same period last
year.

The Company's operating revenues are insufficient to fund its
operations and its assets already are pledged to Trafalgar as
collateral for it outstanding $3.6 million (including interest) of
indebtedness.  The Company has an accumulated deficit of
$14.4 million and a working capital deficiency of $5.2 million at
June 30, 2010.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2010, showed $1.1 million
in total assets, $6.1 million in total liabilities, and a
stockholders' deficit of $5.0 million.

Lynda R. Keeton CPA, LLC, in Henderson, Nev., expressed
substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a
going concern, following its 2009 results.  The independent
auditors noted that the Company has working capital deficiencies
and continued net losses.

NEFF CORP: Unsecured Creditors Attack Chapter 11 Plan
-----------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Law360 reports that Neff Corp.'s unsecured creditors
have savaged the Company's Chapter 11 plan for granting blanket
releases to the parties responsible for a ruinous leveraged buyout
in 2007 and ignoring hundreds of millions of dollars in claims
over the deal that pitched the company toward bankruptcy.

Certain Chartis Companies and Pima County have earlier filed
objections to the Plan.

                         The Chapter 11 Plan

Neff Corp. selected, at an auction, an affiliate of Wayzata
Investment Partners as the successful bidder to sponsor Neff's
Plan of Reorganization.

Neff has also filed with the Court a Second Amended Joint Plan to
incorporate the terms of Wayzata's successful bid.  As a result of
the auction, cash recoveries available to Neff's second lien
lenders have increased from $10 million to $73 million.  In
addition, first lien term loan lenders may elect to receive
payment in full in cash or participate in a rights offering for up
to $181.6 million.  The rights offering is fully backstopped by
Wayzata.

The hearing to consider confirmation of the Plan is scheduled to
occur on September 14, 2010.

                          About Neff Corp.

Privately held Neff Corp., doing business as Neff Rental, provides
construction companies, golf course developers, industrial plants,
the oil industry, and governments with reliable and quality
equipment that is delivered on time where it is needed.  With more
than 1,000 employees operating from branches coast to coast, Neff
Rental is ranked by Rental Equipment Register (RER) magazine as
one of the nation's 10 largest  equipment rental companies.

Neff Corp. and its units, including Neff Rental Inc. filed for
Chapter 11 on May 17, 2010 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 10-12610).

Based in Miami, Neff had assets of $299 million and debt of
$609 million as of the Petition Date, according to the disclosure
statement explaining the plan.  Funded debt totals $580 million.
Revenue in 2009 was $192 million.

Neff has selected an affiliate of Wayzata Investment Partners as
the successful bidder to sponsor its reorganization plan.  The
Plan provides (i) cash recoveries available to second lien lenders
of $73 million, (ii) payment in full in cash or right to
participate in a rights offering for up to $181.6 million for
first lien lenders.  The deadline to vote on Neff's Plan is
September 1, 2010, with Neff's confirmation hearing scheduled to
occur on September 14, 2010.

NORTEL NETWORKS: Court OKs Bid Process for Switch Business
----------------------------------------------------------
Nortel Networks Inc. and its affiliates obtained an order from
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware, approving
the bid process for the sale of their Multi Service Switch
business.

In an order dated September 1, 2010, Bankruptcy Judge Kevin Gross
authorized the Nortel units to conduct a sale by auction of their
MSS business, subject to approval of the bid process by the
Ontario Superior Court of Justice.

The Canadian Court oversees the insolvency cases filed by Canada-
based Nortel Networks Corp. and four of its affiliates.

NNC has already filed with the Canadian Court a motion for
approval of the bid process.  Ernst & Young Inc., the firm
appointed to monitor the assets of the Canadian Debtors, has also
filed its 52nd monitor report, recommending approval of the MSS
Sale Bid Process Approval Motion.

Judge Gross also approved the form of the sale agreement the
Nortel units reached with PSP Holding LLC, which offered to
acquire the MSS business for US$39 million.

PSP's offer will serve as the "stalking horse" bid or the lead
bid at a bankruptcy auction scheduled to held on September 24,
2010.  The auction will be followed by a hearing on September 30,
to consider approval of the sale of the MSS business to the
winning bidder.

Interested buyers are given until September 21 to submit their
bids for the MSS business.  Parties-in-interest have until
September 22 to file any objection to the proposed sale
transaction.

Judge Gross also authorized the payment of a $2.5 million break-
up fee to PSP and another $1.5 million to cover PSP's costs and
expenses as a stalking horse bidder in case another entity is
selected as the winning bidder.  He overruled objections asserted
against approval of the proposed bid process for the MSS business
sale.

Grapevine-Colleyville ISD and Richardson ISD earlier filed an
objection out of concern that the properties in which they hold
tax liens would be included in the sale block.  The Taxing
Authorities assert that they hold claims, aggregating $2,498,703,
against NNI and its affiliates on account of unpaid taxes.  The
claims are secured by tax liens on certain Nortel properties,
according to the Taxing Authorities.

NORTEL NETWORKS: Files Disclosure Statement to Chapter 11 Plan
--------------------------------------------------------------
Nortel Networks Inc. and its affiliated debtors delivered to the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware on Sept. 3,
2010, a disclosure statement describing their joint Chapter 11
plan.

The Disclosure Statement provides a detailed description of the
Plan, which the Debtors filed on July 12, 2010, to help creditors
decide on whether to accept or reject the Plan.

The 126-page Disclosure Statement contains an overview of the
Plan, including a detailed description of the classification and
treatment of claims of creditors and the proposed implementation
of the Plan.

Events leading to the Debtors' bankruptcy filing, and the
administration of the Debtors' business during and after their
emergence from bankruptcy are also discussed in the Disclosure
Statement.

              Claims Classification and Treatment

Claims against the Debtors are divided into Classes 1 to 5 under
the Plan, according to the Disclosure Statement.

Class 1 consists of priority non-tax claims and is unimpaired.
It is deemed to have accepted the Plan and is not entitled to
vote.  Creditors in Class 1 are entitled to payment of their
claims in full and in cash.

Class 2 consists of secured claims and is also unimpaired.  It is
deemed to have accepted the Plan and is not entitled to vote.

Unless creditors in Class 2 agree to a different treatment, they
will receive, at the option of the Debtor, payment in full and in
cash of their allowed claims; payment of the sale or disposition
proceeds of the collateral securing their allowed claims;
delivery of the collateral to the creditors; or other treatment
that leaves unaltered the rights of those creditors.

Class 3 consists of general unsecured claims and is impaired.
Holders of these claims are entitled to vote on the Plan, and
will receive their pro rata share of "creditor proceeds.

Meanwhile, subordinated claims are classified under Class 4 and
are impaired.  Holders of these claims are deemed to reject the
Plan and are not entitled to vote.  They will not receive a cash
distribution unless the allowed claims of creditors in Classes 1
to 3 have been satisfied in full.

Class 5 is divided into Class 5A, which consists of interests in
a Debtor, while Class 5B consists of "interests securities fraud
claims."  Both subclasses are impaired, are deemed to reject the
Plan, are not entitled to vote, and will not receive any
distribution under the Plan.

The Debtors have yet to file an estimate for the recovery of
claims of creditors in each class.

Administrative expense claims, professional claims and priority
tax claims are not classified under the Plan.  Creditors, whose
claims are unclassified, are unimpaired and will be deemed to
accept the Plan.

The Plan recognizes the corporate integrity of each Debtor.
Thus, allowed claims against a particular Debtor will be
satisfied only from the assets of that Debtor.

The distributions to creditors and interest holders as well as
other aspects of the Plan apply separately to each Debtor.  A
creditor or interest holder of a particular Debtor has no direct
claim against or interest in another Debtor or its affiliate.

Under the Plan, a reserve account will be established for future
payment of disputed claims.  On or after the Plan effective date,
the Plan Administrator will hold cash in the reserve enough to
pay holders of disputed claims of their pro rata share of the
distributions they would have been entitled to receive if those
claims had been allowed.  Cash withheld and reserved for payments
to holders of disputed claims will be deposited by the Plan
Administrator in one or more segregated reserve accounts for each
Debtor, to be used for payment of any disputed claim.

               Appointment of Plan Administrator

John J. Ray III, principal officer of NNI, will be appointed as
Plan Administrator.  He will be authorized to carry out and
implement the Plan and a plan administration agreement without
the need for court approval.

An advisory committee jointly selected by the Official Committee
of Unsecured Creditors and the ad hoc group of bondholders will
also be formed on the Plan effective date.

The advisory committee will consist of one member selected by the
Creditors Committee and two members selected by the bondholders
group with consent of the Debtors.  It will be tasked to advise
and approve the actions of the Plan Administrator, among other
things.

                     Liquidation Analysis

If the Plan is not confirmed and the Debtors' Chapter 11 cases
are converted to Chapter 7 liquidation proceedings, the value of
their estate will diminish because of the fees and costs that
must be paid to a Chapter 7 trustee, according to the Disclosure
Statement.

Conversion of the Debtors' Chapter 11 cases to Chapter 7
liquidation proceedings will also delay the ultimate
distributions to creditors and interest holders.

The Debtors have yet to file with the Bankruptcy Court a copy of
their liquidation analysis and a cost analysis demonstrating the
feasibility of the Plan.

NORTEL NETWORKS: Proposes Protocol for Settling Prepetition Claims
------------------------------------------------------------------
Nortel Networks Inc. and its affiliated debtors seek Bankruptcy
Court approval to implement a uniform process for the settlement
of pre-bankruptcy claims.

Ann Cordo, Esq., at Morris Nichols Arsht & Tunnell LLP, in
Wilmington, Delaware, says the Debtors would avoid incurring the
costs and the "administrative burden" of seeking Court approval
for each settlement if the Court approved the proposed settlement
process.

As of December 31, 2009, approximately 6,541 proofs of claim have
been filed against the Debtors' estates.

Under the proposed settlement process, the Debtors will not be
required to provide prior notice for the settlement of disputed
claims that were originally filed in an amount less than
$250,000; or claims originally filed in an amount equal to or
more than $250,000, and less than $500,000 and the claim
difference is less than $50,000.

The Debtors, however, will be required to notify the U.S. Trustee
and attorneys of the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors in
writing of a proposed settlement if the claim was originally
filed in an amount equal to or more than $250,000 and less than
$500,000, and the claim difference is equal to or greater than
$50,000; or if the claim was originally filed in an amount equal
to or more than $500,000 and less than $1 million.

If no one files a written objection within 10 days after
receiving a Prepetition Claim Settlement Notice, the Debtors can
proceed with the settlement.  If an objection is filed and it
cannot be resolved, the claim may be settled upon further Court
order.

However, no disputed claim that was originally filed in an amount
equal to or greater than $1 million will be settled without
further Court approval.

Under the proposed settlement process, the Debtors will be
authorized to exchange mutual releases as part of any settlement
of a proof of claim.  Employees or representatives of the Debtors
who are responsible for negotiating or settling claims will be
allowed to do their task without further hearing and notice to
the Court or other concerned parties.

The Debtors want to clarify that their entry into prepetition
claims settlement, mediation or compromise negotiations does not
constitute a waiver of the automatic stay applicable to judicial,
administrative or other actions or proceedings against them.

The settlement process will not apply to any settlement of claim
where the creditor has filed multiple proofs of claim exceeding
$1 million in the aggregate; where an "insider" is involved; and
where the proof of claim was filed in a wholly unliquidated
amount.

The Court will convene a hearing on September 16, 2010, to
consider approval of the Debtors' request.  Parties-in-interest
have until September 9 to file any objection to the request.

OLDE PRAIRIE: Must File Plan to Oppose Centerpoint's Stay Relief
----------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Illinois
directed Olde Prairie Block Owner, LLC, to file its complete Plan
of Reorganization on the same date as its brief opposing its
principal secured lender CenterPoint Properties Trust's motion to
modify stay.

In relation to the CenterPoint's motion, the Court said that the
Debtor must show a viable Plan that is confirmable and based upon
actual economics.  The Debtor submitted an outline of a possible
Chapter 11 Plan.

Chicago, Illinois-based Olde Prairie Block Owner, LLC, owns two
adjacent parcels of land just north of McCormick Place.  The
Company filed for Chapter 11 protection on May 18, 2010 (Bankr.
N.D. Ill. Case No. 10-22668).  John E. Gierum, Esq., at Gierum &
Mantas, assists the Debtor in its restructuring effort.  The
Company estimated assets at $100 million to $500 million in assets
and $10 million to $50 million in liabilities.


OTC HOLDINGS: DIP Financing, Cash Collateral Use Gets Interim OK
----------------------------------------------------------------
OTC Holdings Corporation, et al., sought and obtained interim
authorization from the Hon. Brendan Linehan Shannon of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware to obtain
postpetition secured financing from a syndicate of lenders under
the first lien credit agreement led by JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A.,
as administrative agent, and use cash collateral.

A copy of the DIP financing agreement is available for free at:

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

As of the Petition Date, the Debtors owed the first lien lenders
an aggregate principal amount of at least $403,000,000.  As of the
Petition Date, the Debtors owed the second lien lenders an
aggregate principal amount of at least $180,000,000.

The DIP lenders have committed to provide up to $40,000,000 of
postpetition financing consisting of up to $33,500,000 of term
loans and up to $6,500,000 of revolving loans and letters of
credit.

According to the interim order, extensions of credit under the
revolving facility $2.5 million, and loans under the term facility
won't exceed $20 million.

Kenneth J. Enos, Esq., at Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor, LLP,
explained that the Debtors need the money to fund their Chapter 11
case, pay suppliers and other parties.

The Debtors want to use the proceeds of the initial borrowing
under the DIP Agreement to pay in full the $2.5 million aggregate
principal amount of first priority term loans, plus any accrued
and unpaid interest thereon, made on August 23, 2010, by certain
of the first lien lenders.

The DIP facility will mature in February 2011.

The Debtors may elect that the DIP Loans comprising each borrowing
bear interest at a rate per annum equal to the ABR plus the
applicable margin or the Eurodollar rate plus the applicable
margin.  ABR is the highest of (i) rate of interest publicly
announced by JPMorgan as its prime rate in effect at its principal
office in New York City, (ii) the federal funds effective rate
from time to time plus 0.5%, (iii) the Eurodollar Rate for one-
month interest period, plus 1%, and (iv) 3.0%.  Applicable Margin
means (i) 4.75% in the case of ABR loans and (ii) 5.75% in the
case of Eurodollar Loans.  Eurodollar Rate means the greater of
(i) rate for Eurodollar deposits for a period equal to one, two or
three months appearing on Reuters Screen LIBOR01 Page and (ii)
2.0%.

The Debtors will pay various commitment, underwriting, arranger
and administrative agency fees to the DIP Agent, the arranger and
the DIP Lenders, in the aggregate amount of approximately 4% of
the aggregate amount of the commitments available under the DIP
facilities.  The Debtors will pay: (i) a fee calculated at a rate
per annum equal to 0.75% on the average daily unused portion of
the DIP facilities, payable monthly in arrears; (ii) a fee on all
outstanding letters of credit at a per annum rate equal to the
Applicable Margin then in effect with respect to Eurodollar loans
on the face amount of each letter of credit.  The fee will be
shared ratably among the DIP Lenders participating in the
revolving facility and will be payable in monthly in arrears; and
(iii) a fronting fee equal to 0.125% per annum on the face amount
of each letter of credit will be payable monthly in arrears to the
issuing lender for its own account.  Customary administrative,
issuance, amendment, payment and negotiation charges will be
payable to the issuing lender for its own account.

At any time after the occurrence and during the continuance of an
event of default, all outstanding DIP Loans will bear interest at
2% above the rate otherwise applicable thereto and all other
obligations will bear interest at 2% above the rate applicable to
the relevant ABR loans.

The DIP obligations will constitute allowed senior administrative
expense claims against the Debtors with priority over any and all
administrative expenses, adequate protection and all other claims
against the Debtors.  As security for the Debtors' obligations,
these security interests and liens will be granted by the Debtors
to the DIP Agent, for itself and the benefit of the DIP Lenders:
(i) first lien on unencumbered property; (ii) liens junior to
certain existing liens; and (iii) liens priming first lien
lenders' and second lien lenders' liens.

As adequate protection for the use of cash collateral, the first
lien agent and the first lien lenders will be granted: (i) first
lien adequate protection liens; (ii) first lien Section 507(b)
claims; (iii) interest, fees, and expenses; and (iv) credit
bidding.  The second lien agent and the second lien lenders will
also be granted: (i) second lien adequate protection liens; (ii)
second lien 507(b) claims.

The DIP Agent will receive (i) a monthly budget for the six months
after the Petition Date and (ii) an initial 13-week cash flow
forecast for the period beginning with the week which includes the
Petition Date through the 13-week thereafter.

The Court has set a final hearing for September 20, 2010, at
11:00 a.m.

Wilmington Trust FSB, as second lien agent, has objected to the
Debtors' request to obtain DIP financing and use cash collateral,
saying that the Debtors must enter into the DIP facilities on the
condition that the Debtors are free to pursue any type of value-
maximizing restructuring consistent with the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court.

Wilmington is represented by Morris, Nichols, Arsht & Tunnell LLP
and Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel LLP

OWENS-ILLINOIS INC: S&P Affirms 'BB+' Corporate Credit Rating
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it affirmed its 'BB+'
corporate credit rating on Owens-Illinois Inc. and its
subsidiaries.  In addition, S&P affirmed its 'BBB' senior secured
debt and '1' recovery ratings, its 'BB+' senior unsecured debt and
'3' recovery ratings on debt issued by OI European Group, and
S&P's 'BB-' senior unsecured debt and '6' recovery ratings on debt
issued by Owens-Illinois Inc.  The '1' recovery ratings indicate
S&P's expectation for very high (90% to 100%) recovery, the '3'
recovery ratings indicate its expectation for meaningful (50% to
70%) recovery, and the '6' recovery ratings indicate S&P's
expectation for negligible (0% to 10%) recovery, in the event of a
payment default.

Also, based on its updated recovery analysis, S&P lowered the
ratings on senior unsecured debt issued by Owens-Brockway Glass
Container Inc. to 'BB' from 'BB+' and revised the recovery rating
to '5' from '4'.  The revised ratings indicate S&P's expectation
for modest (10% to 30%) recovery in the event of a payment
default.

At the same time, S&P assigned a 'BB+' senior unsecured debt
rating and a recovery rating of '3' to OI European Group's
proposed offering of ?500 million of senior notes due 2020.
Owens-Illinois plans to use the proceeds to repay borrowings under
its revolving credit facility and for general corporate purposes.

The ratings on Perrysburg, Ohio-based Owens-Illinois Inc. reflect
its satisfactory business risk profile and significant financial
risk profile.

"Key factors supporting the ratings include solid long-term
business prospects, relatively stable earnings and cash flows,
management's focus on ongoing productivity improvements and cost
reduction, and prudent financial policies," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Cynthia Werneth.  "S&P believes that FFO to debt
will continue to exceed 20% despite the potential for moderate-
size acquisitions."

Owens-Illinois is the world's largest manufacturer of glass
containers, with leading positions in North America, South
America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.

On Sept. 1, 2010, Owens-Illinois acquired Companhia Industrial de
Vidros, the leading glass container producer in northeastern
Brazil.  The purchase price was $603 million in cash, and Owens-
Illinois expects to receive future tax benefits with a present
value of $140 million.  The net purchase price of $464 million
represents a 5.8 multiple of EBITDA for the first year of
operation, including estimated net cost savings.  The CIV
operations are highly profitable, with an estimated EBITDA margin
at about 40% of sales.  The acquisition adds three plants and
expands Owens-Illinois' capacity in Brazil by about 50%.  Pro
forma for the acquisition and planned debt issue, credit measures
weaken slightly, resulting in funds from operations to adjusted
debt of 22% and adjusted debt to EBITDA of 4.2x.

Pro forma debt totals about $5.8 billion, which S&P adjust to
include $904 million representing S&P's estimate of after-tax
asbestos-related liabilities during the next 10 years,
$524 million of tax-effected underfunded postretirement
liabilities, and $172 million of capitalized operating leases.

PCS HOMES: Housing Market Woe Prompts Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Filing
------------------------------------------------------------------
Chris Huntemann, staff writer at Gazette.Net, reports that PCS

under Chapter 11 in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of

PIERRE FOODS: S&P Affirms Corporate Credit Rating at 'B'
--------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it affirmed its 'B'
corporate credit rating on Cincinnati-based Pierre Foods Inc. and
revised its outlook to stable from negative.

At the same time, S&P assigned a 'B+' issue-level rating (one
notch higher than the corporate credit rating) on Pierre Food's
proposed $835 million first-lien senior secured term loan.  The
recovery rating is '2', indicating S&P's expectation for
substantial (70% to 90%) recovery in the event of a payment
default.  Issue-level ratings are based upon preliminary
documentation and are subject to review upon final documentation.
S&P will withdraw its 'BB-' issue-level rating on the company's
existing $275 million term loan upon completion of the
transaction, and repayment of this existing loan.

At the same time, S&P lowered all ratings on Enid, Okla.-based
Advance Food by one notch, including the corporate credit rating,
to 'B' (the same as Pierre Foods) from 'B+', reflecting the
company's proposed merger with Pierre Foods.  S&P removed the
ratings from CreditWatch with negative implications, where they
were placed on July 30, 2010, following Advance Food's
announcement that it had agreed to merge with Pierre Foods in a
leveraged transaction.  Upon completion of the transaction as
proposed, and after Advance Food repays its debt in full, S&P
would withdraw all ratings on Advance Food.

"The ratings on Pierre Foods reflect its highly leveraged capital
structure and integration risk following the proposed merger, and
participation in the highly competitive, although somewhat
recession resistant, packaged foods industry," said Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Rick Joy.  Additional rating factors include
the increased scale of the business, and S&P's belief that
opportunities for operating synergies and continued manufacturing
efficiencies will exist after the merger.  Pierre Foods' recent
performance has benefitted from cost reductions made following its
emergence from bankruptcy in 2009.  Pierre Foods has also reduced
over half of its stock-keeping-units, reflecting efforts to
maximize unit level profitability, and has improved margins as a
result of a combination of price increases and lower raw material
costs.  In recent years, management of both Pierre Foods and
Advance Food has focused on improved operating efficiencies and
S&P expects the combined entity will further benefit from cost
savings synergies.  The company estimates synergies from the
combination to be in the range of $25 million to $30 million.

Following the proposed transaction, S&P believes that the combined
business will result in an enhanced business risk profile.  S&P
believes that Pierre Foods will have organic growth opportunities
through cross-selling products and further diversification in its
sales channels and products.  S&P also believe the combination of
Advance Food's leading positions in certain beef-based products
and long-term relationships with its key distributors, as well as
Pierre Foods' long-tenured relationships with national accounts
and fairly diversified channels will result in a stronger
competitive position for the newly merged company.  Pierre Foods
is a manufacturer of differentiated value-added protein and
handheld convenience food items sold primarily to schools,
national accounts, and foodservice distributors.  Advance Food
develops, manufactures, and markets processed food items,
including meat products and ready-to-serve non-meat products.

Upon completion of the proposed merger, Oaktree Capital Management
L.P. will own about 76% of the combined company and S&P estimates
the combined entity will have about $1.1 billion in debt.  Advance
Brands LLC, a 2001 joint venture between Advance Food and Cargill
Meat Solutions, will also be included in the merger, and the
combined entity of Pierre Foods and Advance Food will purchase
Cargill's interest as part of the acquisition.  Leverage will be
high following the merger.  For the most recent trailing 12-month
period, S&P estimates that adjusted debt to EBITDA is about 6.0x.
It is S&P's opinion that the company's operating performance will
continue to improve and S&P estimates pro forma credit measures
will be within its expectations, namely leverage of 5.5x to 6.0x
and EBITDA interest coverage in the 2.5x area.

The stable outlook on Pierre Foods reflects S&P's expectation for
stable?if not improving?operating performance and adequate
liquidity over the next year, and credit measures close to current
levels, including debt to EBITDA between 5.5x to 6x.  Following
the proposed merger S&P believes the newly combined entity will
gain scale, a larger EBITDA base, and leverage its cross-selling
opportunities.  S&P would consider raising the ratings if the
company reduces adjusted debt to EBITDA closer to 5.0x or below.
S&P believes this could occur if the company achieves the majority
of its post-acquisitions synergies, resulting in pro forma EBITDA
margin expansion of about 300 basis points in 2011 and beyond,
while applying excess cash flow to debt reduction.  Alternatively,
S&P would consider lowering the rating if the company does not
achieve any operating synergies, financial policy becomes more
aggressive, debt leverage increases well above 6.0x, and/or
cushion on the company's bank loan covenants becomes constrained.


PITCAIRN PROPERTIES: Court Dismisses Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Case
---------------------------------------------------------------
Harold Brubaker, staff writer at the Philadelphia Inquirer,
reports that the Hon. Christopher S. Sontchi of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court in Delaware dismissed the Chapter 11 bankruptcy
case of Pitcairn Properties Holdings Inc. and denied a request
that would give the company more time to maneuver in a fight for
control against investors owing $58 million.  The Company said it
will appeal Judge Sontchi's ruling.

The judge, according to the report, found that Chapter 11 was not
a proper vehicle for the restructuring of the terms under which
Pitcairn Properties would redeem the $50 million in preferred
stock.

Pitcairn filed for Chapter 11 to buy time to stave off a
takeover attempt by an investor.  The Company owes $7.56 million
in dividends to an investment firm that has sued for payment.  The
firm, PPH Investments L.L.C., which owns 100% of the preferred
stock in Pitcairn, is owned by Eric L. Blum.  According to
Philadelphia Inquirer, Mr. Blum, through his firm, has $50 million
invested in the Company.  In his suit filed in the Delaware Court
of Chancery, Mr. Blum contends that his investment agreement gives
him the right to appoint a majority of the Company's board.

                     About Pitcairn Properties

Inc. -- http://www.pitcairnproperties.com/-- offers high-rise
offices, residences, and suburban office centers that are
distinctive, efficient, and accommodating.  PPH Investments LLC

and Regency Capital LLC own 100% of the common stock.

The Company estimated assets of $100 million to $500 million and
debts of $10 million to $50 million in its Chapter 11 petition.

James L. Patton, Esq., and Robert F. Poppiti, Jr., at Young
Conaway Stargatt & Taylor, LLP, serves as counsel.


QUIGLEY CO.: Court Rejects 4th Reorganization Plan
---------------------------------------------------
Tiffany Kary at Bloomberg News reports that U.S. Bankruptcy Judge
Stuart M. Bernstein in New York on September 8 rejected Quigley's
fourth reorganization plan and said parties should discuss
dismissal of the case.  He said the plan was filed in "bad faith"
by Pfizer and cited testimony that asbestos claims directed at
Quigley could total $4.45 billion over the next 42 years.

"In a nutshell, Pfizer bought enough votes to assure that any plan
would be accepted," Judge Bernstein wrote.

According to the report, in a 90-page ruling that covers Pfizer's
failed attempts to deal with its growing asbestos liabilities
since June 1985, Judge Bernstein noted that a lawyer who
represented both Quigley and Pfizer settled claims against Quigley
and got releases for Pfizer at no additional cost.

"We are disappointed in the court's ruling as we continue to
believe that Pfizer has no liability for Quigley's conduct," a
Pfizer spokesman, Chris Loder, said in a telephone interview with
Bloomberg.

                        The Chapter 11 Plan

Under the proposed Chapter 11 plan, Pfizer is paying about
$450 million into a trust to satisfy claims about products for
which it allegedly has derivative liability.  According to
Bloomberg's Tiffany Kary, the "channeling injunction" of the
Bankruptcy Code would direct all future claims into the trust,
covering death or personal injury claims related to Insulag,
Panelag and Damit, products for the steel industry that contained
asbestos and were made from the time of World War II to the 1970s.

                        About Quigley Co.

Quigley Co. was acquired by Pfizer in 1968 and sold small amounts
of products containing asbestos until the early 1970s. In
September 2004, Pfizer and Quigley took steps that were intended
to resolve all pending and future claims against the Company and
Quigley in which the claimants allege personal injury from
exposure to Quigley products containing asbestos, silica or mixed
dust. Quigley filed for bankruptcy in 2004 and has a Chapter 11
plan and a settlement with Chrysler.

Quigley filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on Sept. 3,
2004 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 04-15739) to implement a proposed
global resolution of all pending and future asbestos-related
personal injury liabilities.

Lawrence V. Gelber, Esq., and Michael L. Cook, Esq., at Schulte
Roth & Zabel LLP, represent the Debtor in its restructuring
efforts.  Elihu Inselbuchm Esq., at Caplin & Drysdale, Chartered,
represents the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors.  When
the Debtor filed for protection from its creditors, it listed
$155,187,000 in total assets and $141,933,000 in total debts.

RICKY VAN VLEET: Contempt Sanctions Were Civil, Not Criminal
------------------------------------------------------------
WestLaw reports that a bankruptcy court's contempt sanction
against a Chapter 11 debtor's business associate was civil, not
criminal, in nature.  Relying on its equitable powers set forth in
11 U.S.C. Sec. 105, the section of the Bankruptcy Code authorizing
the court to issue any order necessary or appropriate to carry out
the provisions of title 11, the bankruptcy court held the
associate in contempt for violating court orders.  The contempt
was denominated as "civil" in both the court's contempt order and
its remand order.  Finally, while the court's $1,000 per day
sanction was punitive, the court gave the associate a "key to this
prison" by only imposing the sanction until he agreed to submit to
a discovery examination.  In re Van Vleet, --- B.R. ----, 2010 WL
3174769 (D. Colo.) (Daniel, C.J.).

The Bankruptcy Court entered its contempt order and imposed
sanctions against Douglas Bailey, the Debtor's business associate,
who appealed from eleven orders issued by the bankruptcy court in
Mr. Van Vleet's Chapter 11 case.  The Bankruptcy Court found that
Mr. Bailey "directly, indirectly and surreptitiously engaged in
conduct that violated the clear authority of the Trustee
established in the Bankruptcy Code and [Bankruptcy Court Orders]."

Ricky Donovan Van Vleet dba First Financial Centre, Inc., sought
Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. D. Colo. Case No. 06-17238) on
Oct. 11, 2006, represented by Ken McCartney, Esq., in Cheyenne,
Wyo., and disclosing $1,043,775 in assets and $743,717 in
liabilities.  On Jan. 24, 2007, Tom Connolly was appointed as the

SALON MEDIA: Posts $817,000 Net Loss in June 30 Quarter
-------------------------------------------------------
Salon Media Group, Inc., filed its quarterly report on Form 10-Q,
reporting a net loss of $817,000 on $1.2 million of revenue for
the three months ended June 30, 2010, compared with a net loss of
$1.3 million on $989,000 of revenue for the three months ended
June 30, 2009.

The Company's operating forecast for the remainder of the fiscal
year ending March 31, 2011, anticipates continued but reduced
operating losses.  Salon estimates it will require between
$500,000 and $1 million in additional funding to meet its
operating needs for the balance of its fiscal year.  Salon does

THOMAS GROUP: Regains NASDAQ Compliance for Continued Listing
-------------------------------------------------------------
Thomas Group, Inc. disclosed that the NASDAQ Stock Market notified
the Company that it has regained compliance with NASDAQ's minimum
$1.00 per share bid price requirement, and further, that the
Company currently meets the other applicable standards for
continued listing.  Accordingly, the Company's common stock will
continue to be listed on The NASDAQ Capital Market.

As previously announced, following a hearing before a NASDAQ
Listing Qualifications Panel, the Panel determined to continue the
Company's listing subject to the condition that, on or before
September 13, 2010, the Company must have evidenced a closing bid
price for its common stock of $1.00 per share or more for at least
the ten prior consecutive trading days, among other things.  For
ten consecutive trading days, from August 23, 2010 to September 3,
2010, the closing bid price of the Company's common stock exceeded
the $1.00 per share threshold, and on September 3, 2010, the
closing bid price was $1.70 per share. Accordingly, the Company
satisfied the Panel's condition, and the delisting proceeding is
now closed.

The Company's shares will continue to trade on NASDAQ under the
symbol "TGISD" until the close of trading on Tuesday,
September 13, 2010, at which point the fifth character "D" will
drop off and the trading symbol will revert to "TGIS."  In
accordance with NASDAQ requirements, the fifth character "D" was
added to the Company's trading symbol on August 16, 2010, to
reflect the one-for-five share reverse stock split of the
Company's common stock.

UNITED COMPONENTS: S&P Retains CreditWatch Positive on 'B-' Rating
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said its 'B-' corporate credit
rating on United Components Inc. remains on CreditWatch, where it
was placed July 30, 2010, with positive implications.  If UCI
completes its proposed senior debt refinancing, thereby improving
liquidity, S&P expects to raise the corporate credit rating to
'B'.  The rating could remain on CreditWatch, or S&P could remove
it from CreditWatch, if S&P concludes that the company is
reasonably likely to pursue its planned common equity issuance in
the near term.

"The CreditWatch placement now reflects S&P's belief that near-
term risks to the company's financial flexibility will be reduced
by the senior debt refinancing," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Nancy Messer.  In addition, S&P believes liquidity will be
bolstered by the addition of a revolving credit line, as UCI has
no revolving line currently.  Still, the CreditWatch also
continues to reflect the company's plans to issue equity.

The intention of UCI International (formerly UCI HoldCo Inc.) to
issue public equity and use the proceeds to permanently reduce
debt was the original reason for S&P's CreditWatch placement.  In
S&P's opinion, issuing equity would allow the company to pay down
UCI International's PIK notes.

S&P believes the company will use proceeds from the new term loan
to pay down entirely the current term loan D due June 2012 and the
9.375% subordinated debt due June 2013.  Still, S&P also believes
UCI will remain highly leveraged following the proposed senior
debt transaction, with lease-adjusted total debt to EBITDA of
about 6x.

UCI is a supplier to the U.S. automotive aftermarket.  S&P views
the business risk profile as weak and the financial risk profile
as highly leveraged.  UCI is highly leveraged because of pressures
on EBITDA and cash flow in 2009, combined with accretion of
indirect parent UCI International Inc.'s $235 million payment-in-
kind notes, which S&P views as debt.  The company had total
balance sheet debt of $407 million at June 30, 2010, plus another
$339 million in PIK notes held by a third party.

UCI's weak business risk profile reflects the highly competitive
character of the automotive aftermarket and the company's limited
revenue diversity.  Of UCI's revenues for 2009, 88% were derived
from the aftermarket (replacement parts for older vehicles) and
12% from the original equipment manufacturing and service markets
(relatively new vehicles).  Competition from parts suppliers in
low-cost countries affects pricing power for U.S. aftermarket
participants.  UCI's earnings are subject to volatility in costs
for commodities and energy as well as changes in foreign currency
exchange rates, both of which have affected profits in the past
several years.

The positive CreditWatch listing reflects S&P's view that if UCI
completes the bank financing as proposed, S&P would raise the
corporate credit rating to 'B'.  The CreditWatch also reflects the
company's plans to proceed with its proposed equity issuance as
described in the company's recently filed S-1 with the SEC.  S&P
believes proceeds raised from this offering, combined with cash on
hand, will be used to fully pay down the $235 million principal
amount of PIK notes.

S&P expects to raise the corporate credit rating to 'B' if the
proposed debt financing is completed in the next few weeks.  The
ratings could remain on CreditWatch positive if S&P believes the
potential equity offering will proceed.  If the bank refinancing
is not completed, S&P could remove the rating from CreditWatch and
affirm it at 'B-'.

their strike, and continue to be partners with us on numerous
legislative issues, which will improve the working environment and
safety of airline pilots. Our alliance with USAPA will give our
safety and contract initiatives more power."

Commenting on the Strategic Alliance, President Mike Cleary said,
"The Teamsters are true trade unionists, have considerable
influence in Washington, D.C., and represent workers across the
global supply chain (warehouses, ports, fuel supplies, etc).  Such
a strategic alliance will be useful moving forward to help USAPA
and our brothers and sisters at IBT to achieve our common goals,
which include obtaining an industry-standard contract and working
toward bankruptcy reform, Railway Labor Act reform, Flight and
Duty Time reform and safety initiatives."

US AIRWAYS: Pilots Protest Low Pay, Pace of Contract Talks
----------------------------------------------------------
The US Airline Pilots Association, representing the pilots of US
Airways, will picket at the Philadelphia International Airport to
bring attention to what it believes to be US Airways' deliberate
efforts to drag out contract negotiations since 2005, while
benefiting from paying its pilots the lowest wages among the major
airlines.

"The pilots of US Airways have made significant concessions to
help the airline successfully navigate multiple bankruptcies and
the economic challenges that resulted from the terrorist attacks
of September 11, 2001," explained USAPA President Mike Cleary.
"We did so with the full expectation that US Airways would act
morally at the next round of negotiations by remembering our
sacrifices. Now that those difficult times are behind us, US
Airways management is not stepping up at the bargaining table.  By
dragging their feet, they are in effect extending those
concessions indefinitely.  In light of 60% increases in management
costs since 2006, frankly, it's insulting!"

"Unfortunately, the Railway Labor Act (RLA) permits this type of
bad faith negotiating behavior," Cleary continued.  "However,
under specific circumstances, the RLA also permits job actions.
The result of our willingness to help this airline in their times
of need is that our pilots have been left far behind the rest of
the industry regarding pay and benefits. It is time for that to
change."

In September 2005, US Airways and America West Airlines announced
a merger of the two carriers.  In USAPA's view, that attempt at
consolidation has not gone smoothly.

"This month marks five years in which US Airways management has
failed to complete the merger between US Airways and America West
Airlines.  From the pilots' perspective, the carrier is operating
as two separate airlines," said Cleary.  "After more than nine
billion dollars in concessions to help save the airline, the East
pilots continue to work under a bankruptcy-era contract designed
to help the Company survive, while our fellow pilots from the
original America West Airlines continue to work under a contract
negotiated under the strict covenants of the Air Transportation
Stabilization Board (ATSB) loans."

Before the merger, both US Airways and America West accepted ATSB
loans that were designed to aid airlines that lacked reasonable
credit after September 11, 2001, and were heavily dependent on
strict control of labor costs.

The US Airways pilots entered contract negotiations with
management in November 2005 under the terms of a Transition
Agreement at the time of the US Airways-America West merger.  In
April 2009, USAPA requested a National Mediation Board (NMB)
facilitator to assist the parties in reaching an agreement, but US
Airways rejected that proposal.  In November 2009, USAPA applied
directly to the NMB for federally-mediated talks. The NMB granted
that request in January 2010.  NMB-mediated contract negotiations
are currently ongoing.

"It is important that the public realize that we have always tried
to work with US Airways management to seek joint solutions, and we
are committed to doing so in our contract negotiations," said
Cleary.  "However, after five years of Management's stalling
tactics -- while we work for substantially less than our industry
peers -- we have to consider what is best for our membership."

USAPA believes that, should US Airways management fail to
adequately address the pilots' concerns, contract talks could
reach an impasse and end in a self-help situation.

"Reaching the stage of self-help would be detrimental to US
Airways passengers. We care about our passengers, and we care
about our pilots and their families," Cleary said.  "We regret any
negative impact that our passengers may experience as a result of
our exercising our right to bargain for an industry-standard
contract. Our negotiating positions are reasonable, and we think
that they'll understand our unwillingness to being taken advantage
of. Everyone has their breaking point."

"It takes two committed parties to make a successful team; this is
not a solo event," Cleary added. "We are only asking for a willing
partner. So far, we've been dancing alone."

The picketing event will be held September 8, 2010, from 11:00
a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in front of the Philadelphia International
Airport at Terminal A.

YELLOWSTONE MOUNTAIN: Credit Suisse Can't Collect From Founder
--------------------------------------------------------------
Steven Church at Bloomberg News reports that a bankruptcy judge
ruled that Credit Suisse Group AG's "greedy antics" bar it from
collecting $229 million on a soured loan the bank made to the
Yellowstone Club.

Credit Suisse loaned $375 million to the Yellowstone Club resort
in 2005, in an unorthodox and lucrative deal for the bank that
federal bankruptcy judge Ralph B. Kirscher described in May 2009
as a case of "naked greed" that "shocks the conscience of this
court."

As reported by the TCR on January 5, 2010, property owners have
filed a $24 billion lawsuit alleging that Credit Suisse schemed to
defraud investors in several resort communities.  The plaintiffs
allege Credit Suisse and real estate firm Cushman & Wakefield
deliberately engineered the failure of at least four major resort
projects as part of a scheme to take over the properties.
According to the reports, the proposed class-action lawsuit was
filed Sunday before the U.S. District Court for the District of
Idaho.  The initial plaintiffs are:

     -- Beau Blixseth, the son of Tim Blixseth and a Yellowstone
        Club property owner, and

     -- L. J. Gibson, an individual who bought property at
        Tamarack Resort in Idaho, Lake Las Vegas in Nevada, and
        Gin Sur Mer in the Bahamas.

YELLOWSTONE MOUNTAIN: Judge Orders Founder to Pay $40MM
-------------------------------------------------------
Dow Jones' DBR Small Cap reports that Judge Ralph B. Kirscher of
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Butte, Montana, on Tuesday declared
Yellowstone Mountain Club LLC founder Timothy Blixseth liable for
the minimum amount of damages -- $40.1 million -- that the club's
creditors wanted to pin on Mr. Blixseth for his role in driving
the exclusive ski-and-golf community deep into debt.

DBR reports Judge Kirscher ordered Mr. Blixseth to pay $40.1
million into the trust set up to pay creditors under Yellowstone
Club's Chapter 11 plan of reorganization, according to court
papers.  The trustee in charge of the trust, Marc S. Kirschner,
had sought to hold Mr. Blixseth liable for a minimum of $40.1
million.  The maximum amount of damages Mr. Kirschner had
requested was $286.4 million, which represents the amount of loan
proceeds Mr. Blixseth was found to have improperly funneled away
from the club.

* Hilco Real Estate Disclosed Bankruptcy Sale Country Estate
------------------------------------------------------------
Hilco Real Estate, LLC has been retained to sell Monteverde at
Oldstone Manor, a spectacular, 29-acre country estate.  Located in
the Hudson Valley, less than an hour from New York City, the
property features suites and rooms for overnight guests, spa,
banquet hall and full restaurant.

The property's owner filed for bankruptcy in Connecticut in
December, 2008. Hilco Real Estate was appointed by the Chapter 7
Trustee to dispose of the Debtor's New York real estate.  Hilco is
partnering with local brokerage firm NAI Friedland Realty.  A
sealed bid auction process has been selected as the sale method
most likely to maximize the amount to be recovered.  A bid
deadline of November 10, 2010 has been set.

"Monteverde can be an excellent platform for an event coordinator
or catering business," said Neil Aaronson, CEO of Hilco Real
Estate.  He added, "With its proximity to Manhattan, beautiful
setting in the Hudson River Valley and in-place amenities, we
expect great interest in this unique property."

Andrew Becker, Sr. Associate for Hilco Real Estate, added "This
sale has been structured to enable an orderly disposition of the
asset in an expeditious timeframe.  We are excited about working

* Mariner Buying 40% Stake in Co. Holding Failed Banks' Assets
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation has closed on a sale of
a 40% equity interest in a limited liability company created to
hold assets with an unpaid principal balance of approximately $762
million from 20 failed bank receiverships.  The winning bidder of
the Multibank Structured Transaction is Mariner Real Estate
Partners, LLC, in Leawood, Kansas, with a price of 30.93% of the
unpaid principal balance.

As an equity participant, the FDIC will retain a 60% stake in the
LLC and share in the returns on the assets. The FDIC offered 1:1
leverage financing and will issue Purchase Money Notes through the
LLC in the original principal amount of $109 million. The sale was
conducted on a competitive basis with the FDIC receiving a total
of eight bids from five bidders for either a 40% leveraged
ownership interest or a 20% unleveraged ownership interest in the
newly-formed LLC.

The FDIC as receiver for the failed banks will convey to the LLC a
portfolio of approximately 1,062 distressed residential and
commercial acquisition and development loans, of which more than
80% are delinquent. Collectively, the loans have an unpaid
principal balance of $762 million. Fifty-nine percent of the
collateral in the portfolio is located in Colorado, Utah,
California, Idaho, Nevada, and Washington. As the LLC's managing
equity owner, Mariner will manage, service and ultimately dispose
of the LLC's assets.

The bid received from Mariner was determined to be the offer that
resulted in the greatest net return to the participating
receiverships. All of the loans were from banks that failed during
the past 25 months.

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.
