155 EAST TROPICANA: Falcone Buys $130MM 1st Lien Debt
-----------------------------------------------------
Phil Falcone, who runs the $8 billion New York hedge fund
Harbinger Capital Management, bought Hooters Casino Hotel's
troubled $130 million senior loan, putting him in a prime
ownership position for when the casino seeks bankruptcy
protection, sources tell The New York Post.

Mr. Falcone, however, is prohibited by National Hockey League
rules from owning a casino.  Mr. Falcone has a 40% stake in the
NHL's Minnesota Wild.

According to The Post, the casino, with gambling revenues eroding
since the recession (they are down 24% in the first quarter
compared to the previous year) has missed three straight semi-
annual debt payments of $5.7 million beginning in April 2009.  In
the first quarter, the casino, which has 620 slot machines and 24
table games, managed a loss of $3.9 million on $11.3 million in
revenue.

One debt investor told The Post that Mr. Falcone's is considering
a plan that would include selling some of the debt position for
between 25 cents and 27 cents on the dollar.

                      About 155 East Tropicana

Las Vegas, Nev.-based 155 East Tropicana, LLC, was formed in
June 2004 to acquire the Hotel San Remo Casino and Resort, a
casino hotel located in Las Vegas, Nevada, from Eastern & Western
Hotel Corporation.  The Hotel San Remo was renovated and re-
branded and is now known as Hooters Casino Hotel.

The Hooters Casino Hotel is a separate property from the
restaurant chain, but controlled by some of the same people.

The Company's balance sheet at March 31, 2010, showed
$122.7 million in total assets and $171.8 million in total
liabilities, for a stockholder's deficit of $49.0 million.

According to the TCR on April 22, 2010, Moody's Investors Service
has withdrawn the ratings of 155 East Tropicana LLC for business
reasons.  These ratings withdrawn include the 'Ca' Corporate
family rating.

Ernst & Young LLP, in Las Vegas, Nev., has expressed substantial
doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.
The independent auditors noted in its report filed together with
the company's annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended
December 31, 2009, that the Company has incurred recurring
operating losses, has a working capital deficiency and has an
accumulated deficit.  In addition, on April 7, 2009, the Company
received a notice of default in connection with the Company's
credit facility.  "The Company has been unable to meet 2009
payment obligations under certain debt agreements and anticipates
they will be unable to meet 2010 payment obligations under certain
debt agreements, which, absent forbearance or waiver from the
creditors, will result in additional events of default."

ABITIBIBOWATER INC: Wins OK for Consulting Service Providers

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

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

As consulting service providers, Deloitte Consulting is expected
to:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

AFFINION GROUP: Moody's Assigns 'Caa1' Rating on $325 Mil. Notes
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has assigned a Caa1 rating to the
proposed $325 million senior unsecured notes due 2015 of Affinion
Group Holdings, Inc. Proceeds from the notes issuance are expected
to be used to refinance about $291 million in senior unsecured
term loans (pay-in-kind) and the remainder for general corporate
purposes and related transaction fees.  These ratings have been
assigned subject to Moody's review of final documentation
following completion of the notes offering.  Moody's has also
affirmed the B2 corporate family and probability of default rating
and, the SGL-1 speculative grade liquidity rating.  The rating
outlook is stable.

This instrument rating and LGD assessment and been affected:

Affinion Group, Inc.

  -- Affirmed $125 million 5 year senior secured revolver, Ba2
     (LGD2, 20% from LGD2, 18%)

  -- Affirmed $875 million 6 year senior secured term loan, Ba2
     (to LGD2, 20% from LGD2, 18%)

  -- Affirmed $454 million senior unsecured notes due 2013, to B3
     (LGD4, 61% from LGD4, 60%)

  -- Affirmed $356 million senior subordinated notes due 2015,
     Caa1 (to LGD5, 81% from LGD5, 82%)

Affinion Group Holdings, Inc.

  -- Rated $325M senior unsecured notes due 2015, Caa1 (LGD6,
     93%)

  -- Affirmed Corporate Family Rating, B2

  -- Affirmed Probability of Default Rating, B2

  -- Affirmed Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, SGL-1

This rating will be withdrawn upon closing of the transaction and
subject to final review of terms:

  -- $281 million senior unsecured term loan due 2012, Caa1 (LGD6,
     93%)

                        Ratings Rationale

The B2 Corporate Family Rating reflects weak financial strength
metrics for the rating category, lower member counts in the North
American membership and supplemental insured product lines, and
the risk that a difficult economic environment could continue to
pressure consumer response rates to the company's product
offerings.  The ratings are supported by the company's large
member base, direct marketing expertise, track record of steady
financial performance and growth opportunities in international
markets.

The stable outlook anticipates steady revenues and profitability
in 2010 and improving free cash flow.  Moody's expect Affinion to
use a significant portion of post-refinancing cash balance for
either acquisitions or debt repayments during 2011.

The rating outlook could be changed to positive if a sustained
improvement in profitability or debt reduction results in debt to
EBITDA of less than 5 times and free cash flow to debt of about
8%.

The ratings could be pressured by a material decline in
profitability resulting from (i) the loss of a top affinity
partner, (ii) a sharp decline in the member base, or (iii) the
failure to achieve growth in average revenue per member.  A debt-
financed dividend or recapitalization could also pressure the
ratings.  The ratings could be downgraded if Debt to EBITDA and
free cash flow to debt are sustained at over 6.5 times and below
2%, respectively.

Affinion is a leading provider of marketing services and loyalty
programs to many of the largest financial service companies
globally.  The company provides credit monitoring and identity-
theft resolution, accidental death and dismemberment insurance,
discount travel services, loyalty programs, various checking
account and credit card enhancement services.  Apollo Management
V, L.P., owns 97% of Affinion's common stock


ALLIANT TECHSYSTEMS: Moody's Upgrades Corp. Family Rating to 'Ba2'
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service upgraded Alliant Techsystems Inc.'s
Corporate Family and Probability of Default ratings to Ba2 from
Ba3 and assigned Baa3 ratings to the company's $1.0 billion of new
bank credit facilities.  At the same time, ratings on ATK's senior
subordinated and convertible subordinated note issues were raised
to Ba3 from B1.  The outlook is stable.

Ratings changed with updated Loss Given Default point estimates:

  -- Corporate Family to Ba2 from Ba3

  -- Probability of Default to Ba2 from Ba3

  -- Senior Subordinated notes to Ba3 (LGD-4, 68%) from B1 (LGD-4,
     65%)*

  -- Convertible Subordinated note to Ba3 (LGD-4, 68%) from B1
     (LGD-4, 65%)

  -- Existing Secured bank credit facilities to Baa3 (LGD-2, 13%)
     from Ba1 (LGD-2, 16%)

* LGD point estimates on ATK's $280 million of convertible
  subordinated notes will remain LGD-4, 65% pending their planned
  redemption.  The Ba3 rating and point estimate on the instrument
  will be withdrawn upon closing of the redemption.

                         Ratings assigned

  -- $600 million secured revolving credit facility, Baa3 (LGD-2,
     14%)

  -- $400 million secured term loan, Baa3 (LGD-2, 14%)

                        Ratings Rationale

The change in ratings follows ATK's receipt of commitments from
its bank group to amend its current credit facilities which will
extend a $600 million revolving credit and a $400 million term
loan, both of which will have five year maturities.  The new
credits replace an existing $500 million revolving credit and
roughly $258 million outstanding under a term loan which were
scheduled to mature in March 2012.  The refinancing further
improves ATK's liquidity, extends its debt maturities, and
provides incremental resources to address a $300 million maturity
in September 2011.  The new bank credit facilities follow earlier
improvements in ATK's capital structure flowing from its
$350 million note issuance in September which will fund a
redemption of a convertible subordinated note that included a
contingent put feature.  Collectively, these developments along
with sustained profitability and ongoing free cash flow generation
were considered sufficient to lift the underlying Corporate Family
and Probability of default ratings to Ba2 from Ba3.

The Ba2 Corporate Family and Probability of Default ratings
recognize ATK's material scale, profitability and consistent cash
flow contributions from its four defense and aerospace related
segments.  Revenues and earnings have benefited from high levels
of U.S. defense and NASA budgets over the last few years and are
expected to experience favorable trends over the intermediate term
albeit at lower organic growth rates.  The ratings also reflect
modest financial leverage that has declined through growth in
EBITDA.  Adjustments for under-funded pension liabilities have
kept adjusted debt totals relatively constant at $2.5 billion
despite significant contributions to its defined benefit pension
plans.  Still, ATK's capital structure continues with significant
levels of subordinated debt.  These layers of junior debt can be a
platform on which additional senior obligations could be layered.

ATK's operating performance has produced improvement in debt
protection measures.  A continuing substantial backlog of funded
orders, a generally supportive environment in the company's
operations and management's financial strategy are expected to
ultimately de-lever the firm over time.  Nonetheless, growth in
several of the segments may only off-set lower revenues and
earnings in Aerospace Systems that could develop as Space Shuttle
activity winds-down and political uncertainties associated with
business awards for NASA's Constellation program (the Space
Shuttle's replacement) are resolved.  The company continues with
both an acquisition strategy and a share repurchase authorization,
but currently does not pay dividends.

The stable outlook considers favorable prospects for sustained
performance, beneficial aspects of a substantial backlog of
orders, ongoing free cash flow and a strong liquidity profile.

Upward rating pressure could develop should the firm's revenues
and backlog expand beyond current expectations and become evident
in quantitative measures of debt/EBITDA at or below 3 times,
EBITA/interest above 4 times and FCF/debt consistently above 10%.
Conversely, increases in funded debt levels that facilitated share
repurchases or large acquisitions resulting in debt/EBITDA at 4
times or above or if FCF/debt fell below 5% of total debt, could
establish downward pressure on the outlook or ratings.

Ratings on the company's $280 million of convertible subordinated
notes due 2024, which have been called and will be redeemed on
October 14, 2010, will be withdrawn upon formal conclusion of that
process.  Similarly, existing ratings on the company's current
bank credit facilities will be withdrawn upon effectiveness of the
new facilities.

The last rating action was on September 8, 2010 at which time the
outlook was changed to positive and a rating was assigned to a
$300 million senior subordinated note issue.

Alliant Techsystems Inc, headquartered in Edina, MN, is a leading
supplier of propulsion, composite structures, munitions, precision
capabilities and civil and sporting ammunition.  The company
operates four segments: Aerospace Systems, Armament Systems,
Missile Products, and Security & Sporting.  Revenues in fiscal
2010 were approximately $4.8 billion.

AMERICAN MEDICAL: Moody's Affirms 'Ba3' Corporate Family Rating
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed the Ba3 Corporate Family and
Probability of Default Ratings of American Medical Systems
Holdings, Inc. Concurrently, Moody's upgraded the first lien
senior secured revolver and term loan to Baa3 due to changes in
the capital structure, as AMS has repaid a significant portion of
its senior secured term loan.  The rating on the 3.25% convertible
senior subordinated notes remains B1 and the Speculative Grade
Liquidity Rating remains SGL-1, reflecting Moody's expectations
for very strong liquidity over the near-term.  The outlook for the
ratings is stable.

Ratings Changed/LGD estimates revised:

  -- $65 million senior secured revolver due 2012 to Baa3 (LGD1,
     7%) from Ba1 (LGD2, 18%);

  -- $59 million (originally $365 million) senior secured term
     loan B due 2012 to Baa3 (LGD1, 7%) from Ba1 (LGD2, 18%); and

  -- $62 million (outstanding as of July 3, 2010) convertible
     senior subordinated notes due 2036 to B1 (LGD4, 63%) from B1
     (LGD5, 74%).

                        Ratings Rationale

The Corporate Family Rating of Ba3 is supported by AMS's moderate
leverage and strong interest coverage and cash flow to debt
metrics.  Credit metrics have been bolstered over the past several
years by considerable debt repayment with free cash flow and
proceeds from business divestitures.  The ratings are also
supported by the company's leading positions in most of its niche
markets and its track record of innovation in men's and women's
pelvic health.  Moody's expect liquidity to remain very strong,
supported by nearly $70 million of cash and investments, strong
free cash flow, undrawn revolver availability and ample covenant
cushion.

The ratings are constrained by the company's limited size, both on
an absolute basis, and relatively to competitors.  Further, while
AMS has a number of products within the men's and women's health
segments, the majority of products are used by surgical urologists
and surgical gynecologists, resulting in a relatively narrow
business niche.  The ratings are also constrained by the highly
competitive nature, high rate of technological innovation and low
customer switching costs in some of AMS' markets.  These dynamics
can lead to a relatively rapid shift in market share when new
products are brought to market.  That said, AMS has maintained a
very significant share of the men's pelvic health market for many
years.  Lastly, most of AMS' products are used to treat "quality
of life" ailments, and can be negatively affected by weak economic
cycles as the procedures can often be deferred or foregone by
patients.

Moody's see the ratings and outlook as being stable over the near-
term.  If over time, the company were to expand its scale and
diversity through organic growth or a moderate acquisition
strategy, Moody's could upgrade the ratings.  Loss of market share
in key product areas, a meaningful deterioration in free cash
flow, or the pursuit of a significant debt financed acquisition
could lead to pressure on the ratings.

American Medical Systems Inc., headquartered in Minnetonka,
Minnesota, develops and delivers medical solutions to target
patients and physicians (primarily urologists, gynecologists,
urogynecologists and colorectal surgeons) treating men's and
women's pelvic health conditions.  The company's products for men
deal with erectile restoration, incontinence and urethral
strictures, and benign prostatic hyperplasia; products for women
target urinary and fecal incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse.
For the twelve months ended July 3, 2010, the company reported
sales of approximately $541 million.


AMERLINK LTD: N.C. App. Ct. Rejects Anticipatory Breach Claim
-------------------------------------------------------------
Joseph Kintz sued AmerLink Ltd. and Richard Spoor, its president
and chief operating officer, in December 2008 for breach of
contract, breach of express warranty, breach of implied warranty
of merchantability, and others.  The parties had entered into a
settlement in June 2008 that required AmerLink's payment of
$1,300,000 in exchange for certain releases.  The settlement
payments were to be made in five installments.  AmerLink made the
first two payments in a timely manner.  Seven months before the
third installment was due, Mr. Kintz's attorney asked AmerLink to
confirm that it would make the next payment.  Mr. Kintz did not
receive a reply, prompting the filing of the lawsuit.

Mr. Spoor sought dismissal of the complaint, arguing that the
settlement agreement had resolved all claims and that the
complaint failed to state a claim upon which relief can be
granted.

AmerLink filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on February 11, 2009.  At
a March 2, 2009 hearing, the trial court granted Mr. Spoon's
motion.

Mr. Kintz argues that the trial court erred by not honoring the
automatic bankruptcy stay.  On September 7, 2010, the Court of
Appeals of North Carolina rejected Mr. Kintz's claims.  Judge Rick
Elmore, writing for a three-man panel, held that it is not clear
from the record how such an argument is relevant to this matter,
nor does plaintiff elucidate the issue for the Court of Appeals,
and as such this assignment of error is overruled.

Plaintiff next argues that the trial court erred because it
dismissed the suit based on its belief that, once AmerLink had
been dismissed as a party to the suit, the suit itself could no
longer proceed.  "This argument seems to be based on one comment
made by the trial court at the end of the motion hearing that
plaintiff understood to mean that, when AmerLink was dismissed as
a party to the case, the complaint was no longer valid against
defendant alone. However, as the trial court did not state, in
either the written order or in its ruling in court, that this was
the basis for its ruling, we decline to infer that such was the
case. This assignment of error is overruled," Judge Elmore wrote.

Plaintiff also argues that the trial court erred in dismissing his
complaint because the documents before the court were sufficient
to establish a prima facie case for actual or anticipatory breach
of the settlement agreement.  "At best, plaintiff can claim a lack
of response to a demand for clarification. Plaintiff can point
this Court to no case law suggesting that such a lack of response
constitutes the type of "positive, distinct, unequivocal, and
absolute refusal to perform" required to constitute anticipatory
breach. As such, this assignment of error is overruled," Judge
Elmore ruled.

Chief Judge John C. Martin and Judge Wanda G. Bryant concurred.

ANADARKO PETROLEUM: Moody's Confirms 'Ba1' Senior Unsecured Rating
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service confirmed Anadarko Petroleum Corporation
and its guaranteed subsidiaries' Ba1 senior unsecured rating, and
affirmed the SGL-2 Speculative Grade Liquidity rating.  The
outlook is stable.  This concludes the review for possible
downgrade of Anadarko's ratings that was initiated on June 18,
2010.

"While uncertainty remains as to the magnitude of the ultimate
exposure faced by the group following the oil spill caused by the
explosion on the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig, Moody's rating
confirmation and stable outlook includes a Moody's estimated
Anadarko payment of up to $8 billion dollars," said Francis J.
Messina, Vice President -- Senior Analyst.

The confirmation of Anadarko's ratings reflects improved
visibility on Anadarko's future financial profile as a result of
Anadarko's liquidity and financial flexibility.  Moody's also
considered the financial disclosure provided at the time of BP's
release of its second quarter 2010 results, which included a BP
post-tax charge of $22 billion related to the Gulf of Mexico oil
spill.

Moody's acknowledges that uncertainty remains at this stage as to
the ultimate cost of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill to all parties.
Moody's rating confirmation and stable outlook reflects Moody's
expectation that Anadarko will be able to sustain financial
metrics that are commensurate with a Ba1 rating under a range of
likely outcomes for the ultimate total costs resulting from the
oil spill.  And, Moody's believes that Anadarko should be able to
accommodate expenses and cash outlays representing its 25% percent
proportion of the total charges up to approximately $8 billion
within the Ba1 rating level.  A detailed analysis of Anadarko's
exposure was published Monday, September 20th.  For this analysis
Moody's has run various sensitivities including downside scenarios
reflecting: (i) a level of fines and penalties at the top end of
the range stipulated under the Clean Water Act; (ii) damages to
satisfy OPA 90 claims under the Gulf Coast Claims Facility; and,
(iii) litigation awards and settlements.

A positive outcome to key legal actions and investigations
together with the maintenance of operating performance and a
conservative financial policy at Anadarko could lead to a rating
upgrade.

Conversely, Anadarko's rating could be lowered should the ultimate
Gulf of Mexico oil spill related costs exceed Moody's range of
assumptions and/or the company's cash flow generation falls short
of current expectations.

The SGL-2 rating reflects Anadarko's good liquidity over the next
twelve months to meet its obligations.  At June 30, 2010, cash
totaled $3.4 billion.  Since then the company received
$450 million from Western Gas Partners for a dropdown, a
$5 billion five-year secured credit facility, and issued
$2 billion of seven year notes.  Concurrently, the company has no
material debt maturities through 2015.  Additionally, debt
covenants provide good headroom throughout the year.  Three
financial covenants are required under the secured credit
facility: current ratio greater than 1.0x; leverage ratio less
than 4.5x, stepping down to 4.0x after 12/31/2011; and, a
collateral coverage ratio of greater than 1.75x.

Under Moody's Loss Given Default methodology Moody's has assigned
a Ba1 Probability of Default rating to the company.  Based upon
the level of the secured debt in the capital structure in relation
to the size of the unsecured debt, the senior unsecured notes are
at the CFR level.

The last rating action on Anadarko was August 9, 2010, at which
time Moody's affirmed the company's CFR and SGL, and assigned a
Ba1 rating to new unsecured debt.

Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, a large independent exploration
and production company, is headquartered in The Woodlands, Texas.


ANGELICA CORP: S&P Assigns Corporate Credit Rating at 'B'
---------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it assigned its
preliminary 'B' corporate credit rating to Alpharetta, Ga.-based
Angelica Corp.  The outlook is stable.

At the same time, S&P assigned its preliminary 'B+' issue rating
to the company's $185 million senior secured credit facility,
which consists of a five-year $35 million revolving credit
facility, a five-year $50 million term loan A, and a six-year
$100 million term loan B.  The preliminary recovery rating is '2',
indicating S&P's expectation for substantial (70% to 90%) recovery
in the event of a payment default.  The ratings are based on
preliminary terms and closing conditions, and subject to final
review upon receipt of final documentation.

Net proceeds of the term loans will be used to repay an
$85 million mezzanine loan, to repay existing revolver borrowings,
to pay a $35 million dividend to the equity sponsor, and to cover
transactions fees and expenses.  S&P estimate Angelica will have
about $150 million in debt outstanding when the transaction is
finalized.

"In S&P's opinion, the ratings on Angelica Corp. reflect the
company's aggressive financial risk profile," said Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Brian Milligan.  "The debt financed dividend
and high leverage is an indication of an aggressive financial
policy in S&P's view."  Pro forma for the refinancing, S&P
calculate total debt to EBITDA of 4.9x, per Standard & Poor's
standard leverage adjustment methodology, one turn higher than
current leverage.  S&P views Angelica's business risk profile as
vulnerable due to the company's narrow product focus and the
industry's low barriers to entry.

The company has a narrow product focus.  Angelica provides
outsourced linen management services to the U.S. health care
industry.  The majority of the company's business is with
hospitals; however, an effort to increase its share with clinics
and long-term care facilities is underway.  Still, services to the
non-hospital segment constitutes 13% of the company's business.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's expectation for consistent sales
and margin performance, positive cash flow generation, and a
financial policy which leads to steady credit measure improvement.
In addition, the outlook reflects S&P's expectation for the
company to achieve modest market share gains in a weakened
economic environment.  S&P believes the company will have adequate
covenant cushion and liquidity over the next year.  S&P could
lower the rating if the company loses a significant number of
contracts, which results in profitability declines, thin
liquidity, and covenant cushion falling below 10%.  Although
unlikely over the next 12 months, S&P could raise the rating if
improved economic conditions lead to increased revenue growth and
margin expansion, resulting in significantly stronger credit
measures, including total debt to EBITDA below 4.0x.  EBITDA would
need to increase about 15% from current levels for this to occur.
This also presumes a financial policy committed to sustaining
significantly stronger credit measures.


AQUILEX HOLDINGS: S&P Puts 'B' Rating on CreditWatch Negative
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it placed its 'B'
corporate credit rating and all other ratings on Atlanta, Ga.-
based Aquilex Holdings LLC on CreditWatch with negative
implications.  The rating action follows the company's weaker-
than-expected operating performance and resulting erosion of
financial covenant headroom during the first half of 2010.

The provider of specialty welding, repair, maintenance, and
industrial cleaning services had total debt of $399 million on
June 30, 2010.

"The CreditWatch placement on Aquilex reflects the company's
diminished profitability and liquidity during the first half of
2010, because its customers, particularly those in its specialty
welding, repair, and overhaul segment, have delayed the timing of
maintenance turnaround projects to a degree greater than
previously expected," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst James
Siahaan.

Although the company's services are necessary to prevent the
deterioration of equipment and to maintain efficient operations,
its chemicals and utilities customers have continued to defer
maintenance projects on their plant and equipment in order to
temporarily reduce costs and conserve cash during this extended
period of economic uncertainty.  The company's profitability has
eroded, as quarterly adjusted operating margins before
depreciation and amortization declined to 14% on June 30, 2010,
from 18% a year ago.  S&P estimates that the level of headroom
under Aquilex's total debt to EBITDA financial covenant has
deteriorated to roughly 2.5% on June 30, 2010, from about 14% on
March 31, 2010.

Aquilex is highly leveraged.  Its total adjusted debt to EBITDA
ratio had increased to 6.1x on June 30, 2010, from 4.6x as of
Dec. 31, 2009.  Given the limited headroom under the financial
covenants, S&P considers the company's liquidity less than
adequate, though S&P note that Aquilex did have roughly $8 million
of cash and equivalents on June 30, 2010, with approximately
$37 million available under a $50 million revolving credit
facility.  If Aquilex is unable to forestall a breach under its
financial covenants soon, then it could be reliant upon equity
sponsor Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan Board to provide additional
equity.  The terms of the company's credit facility permit the
company to exercise an equity cure, subject to certain
constraints.

S&P expects to resolve the CreditWatch within a few weeks.  S&P
will evaluate Aquilex's operating performance to determine whether
the company can generate enough business in the latter part of the
year to avoid breaching its financial covenants, what steps the
company may implement to address the covenants, and to evaluate
the potential for a downgrade based on the weaker than expected
financial performance.


ASCEND PERFORMANCE: S&P Assigns 'B' Corporate Credit Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned a preliminary 'B'
corporate credit rating to nylon 6,6 producer Ascend Performance
Materials LLC.  The outlook is stable.

At the same time, S&P assigned a preliminary 'B' senior secured
debt rating (the same as the corporate credit rating) and a
preliminary recovery rating of '3' to the company's proposed
$800 million term loan B.  These ratings reflect S&P's expectation
of a meaningful (50% to 70%) recovery in the event of a payment
default.

The ratings on Ascend reflect a weak business risk profile and a
highly leveraged financial risk profile.

S&P's assessment of Ascend's financial profile incorporates the
company's very aggressive financial policy, reflected in a high
dividend payout.  Total dividends paid out in 2010 could approach
$1.1 billion.  This estimate includes dividends already paid out,
a proposed dividend of $922 million to be funded by the current
transaction, and proposed future dividends contingent on certain
events.  S&P's ratings factor in uncertainty on financial policy
because of Ascend's very limited track record as a stand-alone
company.  The ratings also take into account a potential decline
in liquidity following the close of the proposed financing
transactions, given the company's intention to extract additional
dividends to be funded out of operating cash flows or availability
under the company's asset-based revolving credit facility.  While
S&P recognizes the improving trend in operating performance, and
believe this trend is likely to be sustained for the near term,
S&P views the nylon 6,6 industry as highly cyclical and believe
the proposed liquidity provides less than adequate downside
protection.

Ascend produces nylon 6,6 and sells related chemicals that are not
used in Ascend's own nylon 6,6 production.  Nylon 6,6 has
specialized applications in several industries but is used mainly
in the production of automobiles and construction materials due to
its superior thermal properties and abrasion resistance, relative
to other materials.

The stable outlook reflects near-term prospects for improvement in
operating performance.  S&P also expect that management policies
will support stable credit metrics and maintenance of liquidity
levels to support the current ratings.  However, S&P could lower
the ratings if liquidity or covenant compliance deteriorated
meaningfully below levels that S&P would expect at the close of
the transaction, which could occur as a result of additional
dividend payments or an unexpected downturn in business
conditions.  For example, S&P could lower ratings following an
unexpected decline in revenues during 2011 and a drop in operating
margins to about 12% or below so that the ratio of FFO to total
debt weakened to single-digit levels with no prospects for
improvement.  On the other hand S&P would consider a modest
upgrade if earnings improve during the next year so that the ratio
of FFO to total debt remains above 12% on a consistent basis, and
liquidity improves.  In this situation S&P would assess financial
policy and management's support for a sustained improvement to
leverage credit metrics.


ASIA8 INC: Posts $39,000 Net Loss in June 30 Quarter
----------------------------------------------------
Asia8, Inc., filed its quarterly report on Form 10-Q, reporting a
net loss of $39,023 for the three months ended June 30, 2010,
compared with net income of $214,572 for the same period last
year.  The Company had no revenue or gross profits for the three
months months ended June 30, 2010, and 2009.

Loss from equity investment (in WWA Group) was $22,282 during the
three months ended June 30, 2010, as compared to income from
equity investment of $255,882 during the same period of 2009.  The
Company says it expects to transition back to net income over the
next twelve months as it expects income from its equity investment
and revenue from the sale of Wing House mobile shelters.

At June 30, 2010, the Company had a working capital deficit of
$170,203.  This compares to a working capital deficit of $136,518
at December 31, 2009.

The Company's balance sheet as of June 30, 2010, showed
$1.8 million in total assets, $175,376 in total liabilities, and
stockholders' equity of $1.6 million.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on April 7, 2010,
Kostandinos Jerry Georgatos, in Hayward, Calif., expressed
substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a
going concern, following its 2009 results.  The independent
auditors noted of the Company's recurring losses from operations
and net capital deficiency.

A full-text copy of the Form 10-Q is available for free at:

Tempe, Ariz.-based Asia8, Inc.'s current focus is to (i) work
together with its 32% owned subsidiary, WWA Group, Inc. and WWA
Group's subsidiaries to increase the value of the Company's
investment and (ii) leverage that relationship to develop the
distribution of Wing House mobile shelter systems.

During June of 2000, the Company paid $970,000 to acquire 49% of
World Wide Auctioneers, Inc., a Nevada registered corporation,
holding 100% of British Virgin Island registered company World
Wide Auctioneers, Ltd.  In August of 2003, World Wide Auctioneers,
Inc., sold 100% of its subsidiary World Wide Auctioneers, Ltd., to
a Nevada registered company WWA Group, Inc., in a stock for stock
transaction whereby WWA stock was issued to owners of World Wide
Auctioneers, Inc., in exchange for ownership of World Wide
Auctioneers, Ltd.  The exchange caused the Company to acquire a
minority equity investment in WWA Group.


AUDIO PRAXIS: Nightclub Closing Order Prompted Chapter 11 Filing
----------------------------------------------------------------
Luci Scott at The Arizona Republic reports that Audio Praxis
sought bankruptcy protection a day after Maricopa County Superior
Court Judge J. Richard Gama issued a preliminary injunction
closing its Phase 54 nightclub.  Outback Steakhouse, Carrabba's
Italian Grill and Charleston's had sought the injunction, saying
Phase 54 violated the covenants, conditions and restrictions of
Chandler Gateway West.

Audio Praxis Ent. Inc./Phase, also known as Phase Four
Studios/Phase filed a Chapter 11 petition on August 26, 2010
(Bankr. D. Ariz. Case No. 10-27232).  The petition was filed pro
se.  The Debtor estimated assets of less than $50,000, and
liabilities between $100,000 and $500,000 in the Chapter 11
petition.


BANDER LAW: Attorney Sanctioned for Failure to Attend Hearing
-------------------------------------------------------------
In In re D'Angelo Camacho Carpo and Myrna Ayran Bautista-Carpo,
dba Elena Home Care, (Bankr. N.D. Calif. 09-32520), Judge Dennis
Montali on February 4, 2010, entered an order directing Timothy
Umbreit, Esq., to appear in person at a hearing on March 5, 2010,
to show cause why the Bander Law Firm should not be compelled to
disgorge all fees and retainers paid to it by the Debtors, and why
Mr. Umbreit, as the Debtors' principal bankruptcy counsel, should
not be personally sanctioned for failure to comply with the
court's prior directive to appear in person at a January 28 status
conference.  Mr. Umbreit did not appear at the March 5 hearing on
the Order to Show Cause and he did not file a written response to
the OSC seven days prior to the hearing.

The court entered an order on March 22, 2010, imposing $5,000 in
sanctions against Mr. Umbreit personally.  The Sanctions Order
directed Mr. Umbreit to pay that amount to Debtors, in care of
their new counsel, by April 5, 2010.  Mr. Umbreit has not made the
payment.

Mr. Umbreit filed a motion for reconsideration and for relief from
the Sanctions Order.  He did not seek a stay of the Sanctions
Order.  The court held a hearing on the motion for reconsideration
on April 30, 2010.

The Debtors paid $20,000 or more to Mr. Umbreit's firm, but
neither Mr. Umbreit nor any other attorney from his firm ever met
Debtors in person.

In a decision dated September 7, Judge Montali maintained that Mr.
Umbreit's conduct vis-a-vis the court orders and failure to file
status conference statements was conscious and willful.  Judge
Montali also held that Mr. Umbreit's his conduct in the
representation of Debtors was unprofessional and well below any
reasonable standard of care.  Judge Montali denied Mr. Umbreit's
motion for reconsideration.

The Bander Law Firm filed a chapter 7 petition (Bankr. C.D. Calif.
Case No. 10-15066) on February 12, 2010.  Mr. Umbreit has not
filed bankruptcy.

BENDER SHIPBUILDING: Gulf Offshore Loses Bid to Pursue Guarantor
----------------------------------------------------------------
In Gulf Offshore Logistics, LLC, v. Thomas B. Bender, Jr., Civil
Action No. 09-0688 (S.D. Ala.)., the plaintiff entered an
agreement with Bender Shipbuilding & Repair, Inc., pursuant to
which the plaintiff paid to Bender $1 million to hold the delivery
date and production capacity for construction of a $43 million
vessel, pending further negotiation towards a contract for
construction of the vessel.  The Letter Agreement provided that,
should the plaintiff for specified reasons not proceed to contract
with Bender, the $1 million would be returned to the plaintiff.
In connection with this agreement, the defendant executed a
personal guaranty. The plaintiff did not proceed to contract with
Bender.  Bender returned $400,000 to the plaintiff, but the
principal sum of $600,000 remains unpaid.  The plaintiff seeks to
recover the balance, plus interest, costs and attorney's fees,
from the defendant based on the Guaranty.

On June 9, 2009, several creditors of Bender filed an involuntary
bankruptcy petition under Chapter 7.  On July 1, 2009, the case
was converted to a Chapter 11 reorganization proceeding, which
remains pending.  The plaintiff argues that, once Bender was
placed in bankruptcy, it had no further obligation to pursue
Bender before pursuing the defendant.

Chief District Judge William H. Steele held that the plaintiff has
not met its burden and denied its request for summary judgment.

A copy of the court's order is available at:

Bender Shipbuilding & Repair Co. welds the hull of an offshore oil
supply boats the Mobile, Alabama.  Attorneys at Lugenbuhl,
Wheaton, Peck, Rankin & Hubbard, serve as counsel for the Debtor.

In January 2010, Signal International of Mobile, Alabama, emerged
as the winning bidder with its $31.3 million offer for Bender's
assets.


BEVERAGES & MORE!: S&P Gives Stable Outlook; Affirms 'B-' Rating
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it revised its outlook on
Concord, Calif.-based Beverages & More! Inc. to stable from
positive.  At the same time, S&P affirmed the 'B-' corporate
credit rating on the company.

In addition, S&P assigned its 'B-' issue-level rating to the
company's new $125 million senior secured notes due 2014.  The
recovery rating is '4', indicating S&P's expectation of average
(30%-50%) recovery in the event of default.  The company intends
to use proceeds to refinance the existing $100 million senior
secured notes due 2012, to repay a portion of existing 13% pay-in-
kind notes, to reduce revolver borrowings, and to pay transaction-
related fees and expenses.  The new issuance will extend the
company's senior secured notes maturity from 2012 to 2014.

"The rating action reflects BevMo's decelerating performance gains
amid weak economic conditions, coupled with a lack of recent
credit measure improvement," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Brian Milligan.  With the modest debt increase from the
refinancing transaction and slowing performance improvement, S&P
does not expect a meaningful enhancement to the company's credit
protection profile over the near term.


BIONEUTRAL GROUP: Posts $655,800 Net Loss in July 31 Quarter
------------------------------------------------------------
BioNeutral Group, Inc., filed its quarterly report on Form 10-Q,
reporting a net loss of $655,847 on $15,500 of revenue for the
three months ended July 31, 2010, compared with a net loss of
$1.74 million on $2,825 of revenue for the three months ended
July 31, 2009.

The Company has an accumulated deficit of $49.12 million and
working capital deficiency of $1.69 million as of July 31, 2010.

The Company's balance sheet at July 31, 2010, showed
$11.74 million in total assets, $3.47 million in total
liabilities, and stockholders' equity of $8.27 million.

Bartolomei Pucciarelli, LLC, in Lawrenceville, N.J., expressed
substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a
going concern, following its results for the fiscal year ended
October 31, 2009.  The independent auditors noted that the Company
had a working capital deficiency of approximately $425,000 as of
October 31, 2009, a net loss of approximately $15.6 million for
the year ended October 31, 2009, and an accumulated deficit of
approximately $46.3 million as of October 31, 2009.

BLOCKBUSTER INC: Files for Chapter 11 with Pre-Arranged Plan
------------------------------------------------------------
Blockbuster Inc. and 12 U.S. affiliates initiated Chapter 11
bankruptcy proceedings with a pre-arranged reorganization plan
in Manhattan on September 23, 2010 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No.
10-14997).

Blockbuster said in a statement that it has reached agreement with
a group of bondholders holding 80.1% principal amount of the
Company's 11.75% senior secured notes on the material terms of a
plan to recapitalize its balance sheet and put the Company in a
stronger financial position as it continues to pursue its
strategic plan and transform its business model.  The
recapitalization plan would substantially reduce the Company's
indebtedness -- from nearly $1 billion currently to an estimated
$100 million or less when implemented.

Jim Keyes, chairman and chief executive officer, commented, in the
September 23 statement, "After a careful and thorough analysis, we
determined that the process announced today provides the optimal
path for recapitalizing our balance sheet and positioning
Blockbuster for the future as we continue to transform our
business model to meet the evolving preferences of our customers.
The recapitalized Blockbuster will move forward better able to
leverage its strong strategic position, including a well-
established brand name, an exceptional library of more than
125,000 titles, and our position as the only operator that
provides access across multiple delivery channels -- stores,
kiosks, by-mail and digital.  This variety of delivery channels
provides unrivaled convenience, service, and value for our
customers."

                Financing from Existing Noteholders

The Company has secured a commitment of $125 million in new
"debtor-in-possession" financing from certain existing senior
secured noteholders to help meet its obligations to customers,
suppliers and employees in the ordinary course during the
recapitalization process.

About $45 million of revolving loans will be made available upon
interim approval of the DIP financing.

The DIP financing also provides for a roll-up of up to $250
million of the $675 million in existing senior secured notes.

The DIP financing will mature April 30, 2011.

Mr. Keyes said, "We are pleased to enter this process with the
support of the Senior Noteholders. Their willingness to provide
the DIP financing and to support a plan to eliminate a substantial
amount of the Company's debt in exchange for new equity is an
important vote of confidence in Blockbuster."

                   Bankruptcy Exit by April 2011

Prepetition, Blockbuster issued $675 million aggregate principal
amount of 11.75% senior secured notes due October 1, 2014.  It
also issued $300 million aggregate principal amount of 9.0% senior
unsecured subordinated notes due September 1, 2012.  In addition,
Blockbuster estimates it has approximately $57 million in
outstanding accounts payable, exclusive of lease obligations and
the majority of studio-related obligations.

Under the terms of the plan of reorganization contemplated by the
Plan Support Agreement, the Company's 11.75% senior secured notes
will be exchanged for the equity of a reorganized Blockbuster.
The only debt expected to remain on the Company's balance sheet
upon its emergence from Chapter 11 under the proposed plan will be
the amounts drawn under Blockbuster's $125 million DIP financing,
which will convert to an exit loan facility upon consummation of
the plan, and a new exit revolving credit facility of up to $50
million.  Under the proposed plan, there would be no recovery by
the holders of the Company's outstanding subordinated debt,
preferred stock or common stock.

Carl Icahn bought about one-third of Blockbuster's bonds as of
Sept. 17, Bloomberg News reported, citing people with knowledge of
the matter.  According to Bloomberg, Mr. Icahn, 74, a former
director of the company, led a proxy fight in 2005 to put himself
and two nominees on the board.  Last March, he cut his stake in
the company to 3.5 percent by selling stock.  He left the board in
January.

The Plan Support Agreement requires Blockbuster to meet these
milestones:

    -- By no later than 35 calendar days after the Commencement
       Date, the Bankruptcy Court will have entered an order
       granting payments to critical vendors;

    -- By no later than 60 days after the Commencement Date,
       the Debtors will have filed with the Bankruptcy Court the
       Plan and Disclosure Statement, each containing terms and
       conditions consistent with the terms and conditions
       provided herein and in form and substance acceptable to the
       Debtors and a Supermajority of the Consenting Noteholders;

    -- By no later than January 15, 2011, the Bankruptcy Court
       will have approved the Disclosure Statement with respect to
       the Plan;

    -- By no later than March 15, 2011, the Bankruptcy Court shall
       have entered the Confirmation Order, in form and substance
       acceptable to the Debtors and a Supermajority of the
       Consenting Noteholders; and

    -- By no later than April 14, 2011, the Effective Date will
       have occurred.

A copy of the Plan Support Agreement is available for free at:

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

                   U.S. Portfolio to be Evaluated

As part of the recapitalization process, the Company will evaluate
its U.S. store portfolio with a view towards enhancing the overall
profitability of its store operations.  Currently, all 3,000 of
the Company's stores in the U.S. will remain open.

Blockbuster is likely to close more than 500 stores and will seek
ways to reduce lease costs on hundreds of others, Ronald Grover at
Bloomberg News reported, citing a person with knowledge of the
plans.  The actual number of stores is still being worked out
following the Chapter 11 filing, said the person, who declined to
be identified because the deliberations are private and subject to
court approval.

Over the past two years, Blockbuster has closed 1,061 domestic
company-operated stores to reduce operating expenses.

                        Road to Bankruptcy

"Blockbuster's financial challenges result from trends in general
macroeconomic conditions; increased industry competition and
fragmentation; balancing the sectoral decline of Blockbuster's
largest distribution channel with the ascension of emerging
channels, such as vending and digital, unsustainable levels of
debt, and certain other factors," Jeffery J. Stegenga, the CRO,
said in a First Day affidavit filed with the Bankruptcy Court.

Prior to the bankruptcy filing, Blockbuster received from
bondholders a series of moratoriums on payment of principal and
interest, the latest of which was set to expire September 30,
2010.

In February 2009, Blockbuster hired law firm Weil Gotshal and
investment bank Rothschild Inc., to explore strategies for cutting
the Company's $1 billion debt load.

The Debtors' advisors initiated discussions with Houlihan, Lokey,
Howard & Zukin Inc. and Sidley Austin LLP, financial and legal
advisors, respectively, to an ad hoc group of holders of the
Senior Secured Notes -- Sponsoring Noteholders -- and Moelis & Co.
and Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP, financial and
legal advisors, respectively, to an ad hoc group of holders of the
Senior Subordinated Notes.

Since May 2010, Blockbuster and its advisors have worked
extensively with the Sponsoring Noteholders, their advisors, and
other stakeholders to advance and document a standalone
recapitalization transaction structure, the DIP Facility, and the
terms of supply agreements going forward.  The negotiations led to
Blockbuster's entry into the Plan Support Agreement.

                         Business as Usual

Blockbuster said that despite the bankruptcy filing, U.S.
operations, including its stores, DVD vending kiosks, by-mail and
digital businesses, are open and serving customers in the normal
course.  Blockbuster is fulfilling all orders as usual, including
continuing to provide access to new releases the first day they
become available.  Blockbuster intends to continue honoring its
Rewards program, valid coupons, gift cards and other customer
programs.

Blockbuster franchise locations in both the U.S. and abroad are
independently owned, operated and funded, and are also continuing
normal business operations. In addition, BLOCKBUSTER Express
vending kiosks, owned and operated through a relationship with
NCR, continue their operations in retail locations around the U.S.
The Company's international operations in Canada, Denmark, Italy,
Mexico, and the United Kingdom are also conducting business as
usual. However, Blockbuster will no longer provide funding to
support its operations in Argentina, which have experienced
continued shortfalls in operating cash flow.

Blockbuster's non-U.S. operations and its domestic and
international franchisees, all of which are legally separate
entities, were not included in the filings and are not parties to
the Chapter 11 proceedings.

BLOCKBUSTER INC: Receives Court Approval of "First Day Motions"
---------------------------------------------------------------
Blockbuster Inc. disclosed that the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York has granted approval of "First Day
Motions" requested by the Company to help enable it to conduct
business in the ordinary course as it moves to recapitalize its
balance sheet and substantially reduce debt.

All of Blockbuster's U.S. operations, including its stores, DVD
vending kiosks, by-mail and digital businesses, are open and
serving customers in the normal course.  Blockbuster is fulfilling
all orders as usual, including continuing to provide access to new
releases the first day they become available.

On September 23, 2010, as part of its voluntary filing for
reorganization under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code, the
Company submitted First Day Motions designed to support its
domestic customers, vendors and employees.  At a hearing later
that day, the Court granted permission for the Company, among
other things, to:

Continue honoring its Rewards program, valid coupons, gift cards
and other customer programs;

Pay its employees in the usual manner and to continue their
primary benefits without disruption;

Continue to maintain its cash management systems;

Pay certain pre-petition claims of movie studios.

The Court also authorized Blockbuster to access up to $20 million
of the new $125 million Debtor-in-Possession (DIP) financing
provided by the Senior Noteholders on an interim basis to help
meet its obligations to customers, suppliers and employees during
the recapitalization process.  The Company will seek final
approval of the entire DIP financing at a future court hearing.

CALIFORNIA HOUSING: S&P Cuts Counterparty Credit Rating to 'CC'
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it lowered its
counterparty credit and financial strength ratings on California
Housing Loan Insurance Fund to 'CC' from 'CCC-'.  Standard &
Poor's subsequently withdrew the ratings on CaHLIF at the
company's request.

On Jan. 21, 2010, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its
counterparty credit and financial strength ratings on CaHLIF to
'CCC-' from 'BBB', reflecting the rapid increase in delinquencies
and losses incurred.  "Since then, losses have continued to the
extent that as of the end of the first quarter of 2010, surplus
has become significantly negative, with new notices of default
continuing to be reported," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Ron Joas.  Standard & Poor's believes that the delinquencies
reported and losses incurred will ultimately transition into
claims paid with greater rapidity through the remainder of 2010
and into 2011, to the extent that CaHLIF is likely to default on
its claim obligations within the next six to nine months.
Other than a small line of credit from the California Housing
Finance Agency, Standard & Poor's believes CaHLIF has limited
sources of additional capital, particularly because it would have
to obtain legislative approval to receive new capital or redirect
capital from other funds.  In addition, the State of California's
current budgetary restrictions appear to make it unlikely that the
state will recapitalize CaHLIF in the near term.  As a result, S&P
has ascribed no support to CaHLIF from its relationship with
CalHFA.

The outlook on CaHLIF is negative, reflecting Standard & Poor's
belief that CaHLIF has limited sources of additional capital and
will default on its claims obligations within the next six to nine
months.

CCGI HOLDING: Moody's Assigns 'B3' Corporate Family Rating
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has assigned a first-time B3 Corporate
Family Rating and a B3 Probability of Default Rating to CCGI
Holding Corporation.  The rating agency also assigned a B3 (LGD4-
50%) rating to the proposed $250 million senior secured term loan
and the $25 million revolving credit facility that will be jointly
held by Covad Communications Group, Inc. and MegaPath, Inc., both
wholly-owned subsidiaries of CCGI.  CCGI will guaranty the senior
secured facilities.  The $250 million term loan under the credit
facilities and approximately $13 million of existing cash will be
used to refinance existing debt of the combined company that
represents the merger of Covad, MegaPath and Speakeasy Broadband
Services LLP.

Moody's has taken these rating actions:

Assignments:

Issuer: CCGI Holding Corporation

* Corporate Family Rating, Assigned B3
* Probability of Default Rating, Assigned B3

Issuer: Covad Communications Group, Inc., and MegaPath, Inc.

* $25Mln Senior Secured Revolving Credit Facility, Assigned B3
  (LGD4-50%)

* $250Mln Senior Secured Term Loan, Assigned B3 (LGD4-50%)

                        Ratings Rationale

CCGI's B3 corporate family rating partly reflects Moody's concerns
about the Company's fundamental business model and the increased
execution risk associated with the simultaneous integration of
three companies.  In addition, high competition in CCGI's markets
and the company's reliance on accessing incumbent telcos' networks
are also major considerations in CCGI's rating assignment.  The
ratings are supported by the company's good liquidity and expected
free cash flow generation.  Moody's expects the company's Moody's
adjusted EBITDA margin for 2010 to be about 16% (incorporating
pro-forma merged operations and year of one cost savings from the
merger transaction).

Moody's expects CCGI's pro-forma adjusted Debt/EBITDA leverage to
be under 4.0x at closing (Moody's adjusted, post-synergies),
potentially improving over the next several years driven by EBITDA
growth and debt reduction due to mandatory excess cash sweep in
the credit facility.  This de-leveraging is, however, dependent on
the successful integration of the three companies and the success
of the revamped sales force to grow revenues.

Over the long term, Moody's believes that CCGI will face
increasing financial risk due to its challenging business model.
Moody's views this model, centered on serving small- to medium-
sized business customers, enterprise business customers and
wholesale markets over a primarily leased network from the local
telecom incumbents, to generate significantly lower margins when
compared to services offered over owned facilities.

Moody's expects CCGI's EBITDA margins in 2011 will be in the mid-
teen range, largely reflecting realization of the annualized cost
savings initiated in 2010 and some modest improvements in
operating margins.  CCGI expects to generate about $44 million in
run-rate cost savings from the merger by mid-2011, primarily
through network and G&A consolidation.  At the same time, the
company continues to face the intense competitive dynamics of its
industry as it fends off better capitalized and much-larger
incumbent telcos and cablecos, while attempting to increase sales
in a weak economy requiring tighter credit policies.  Moody's
remains cautious as to the ability of the company to realize the
full benefit of these savings in light of the complexity of the
transaction and the tough operating environment.

Moody's expects CCGI will have "good" liquidity over the next
twelve months.  Pro forma for the proposed loan offering, Moody's
projects the company will have over $35 million in cash or
equivalents and an undrawn $25 million revolving credit facility.
CCGI's projected free cash flow should be more than sufficient to
meet its modest capex obligations.  In the event of business
weakness, capex would likely be lower as the majority of projected
spending is success based and the network's footprint is
essentially complete.

                             Outlook

The stable outlook reflects Moody's view that CCGI will retain a
disciplined capital structure and that merger synergies will drive
adjusted debt/EBITDA leverage below 4.0x range by the end of 2011.

                What Could Change the Rating -- Up

Upward rating pressure could build if the company maintains
adjusted leverage in the low 3.0x range, which would likely result
from the company succeeding in growing its revenues through
greater product expansion and maintaining solid cost controls at
the combined entity.  Maintenance of a good liquidity profile and
strong free cash flow-to-debt are also assumed to be prerequisites
to prospective positive rating action(s).

               What Could Change the Rating -- Down

Downward rating pressure could develop if adjusted leverage
remains above 4.0x on a sustained basis, or if free cash flow-to-
debt falls below 5%, which could result from revenue declines or
the inability to successfully merge the three entities in the
transaction.  Ratings could also come under downward pressure if
heightened competition and/or churn further threaten the combined
company's sales growth.

This is the first time that Moody's has rated CCGI.

CHARTER COMMUNICATIONS: S&P Assigns 'B' Rating on $1 Bil. Notes
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it assigned its 'B' issue-
level rating and '6' recovery rating to $1 billion of unsecured
notes due 2017 to be offered by subsidiaries of St. Louis-based
Charter Communications Inc.  The '6' recovery rating indicates
S&P's expectation of negligible (0%-10%) recovery of principal in
the event of a payment default.  At the same time, S&P affirmed
the 'BB-' corporate credit rating on Charter, but raised certain
issue-level ratings.  The outlook is stable.

The $1 billion senior notes will be co-issued by Charter
subsidiaries CCO Holdings LLC and CCO Holding Capital Corp. The
notes will be sold under Rule 144A with registration rights.

S&P raised the issue-level rating on the second-lien debt (issued
by Charter Communications Operating LLC and Charter Communications
Capital Corp.) to 'BB+' from 'BB' and revised the recovery rating
to '1' from '2'.  At the same time, S&P raised the issue-level
rating on the third-lien debt (issued by CCO Holdings LLC) to
'BB+' from 'B', reflecting the revision of the recovery rating on
that debt to '1' from '6'.  The '1' recovery rating indicates
prospects for very high (90%-100%) recovery of principal in the
event of a payment default.

"The issue-level rating upgrades on Charter's second- and third-
lien debt do not reflect a change in S&P's view of the company's
overall credit quality," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Richard Siderman, "rather, they reflect the relative improvement
in recovery prospects for those particular debt issues due to the
reduction in priority obligations."  S&P expects Charter to use
proceeds from the new note issuance to repay a portion of the
fist-lien bank debt.


CHEMTURA CORPORATION: Terminates Rights Offering
------------------------------------------------
Chemtura Corporation has terminated its previously announced
rights offering to eligible holders to purchase up to 7,385,524
shares of new common stock.

As previously disclosed, on March 18, 2009, Chemtura and 26 of its
U.S. subsidiaries filed voluntary petitions for reorganization,
and on August 8, 2010, Chemtura Canada Co./Cie filed a voluntary
petition for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Code in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of New York.  On August 5, 2010, the Debtors filed with
the Bankruptcy Court the solicitation version of their joint plan
of reorganization and accompanying disclosure statement. The
Bankruptcy Court approved the Disclosure Statement on August 5,
2010. On September 2, 2010, Chemtura filed a supplement to the
Plan with the Bankruptcy Court, as contemplated by the Plan.

Each class of creditors entitled to vote on the Plan has voted to
support the Plan, while the holders of Class 13a interests,
primarily consisting of the equity holders of the Debtors, voted
to reject the Plan.  The previously proposed rights offering to
eligible holders to purchase up to 7,385,524 shares of new common
stock was conditioned upon the holders of Class 13a interests
voting to support the Plan, and therefore, such rights offering
has been terminated by the Company, and the shares of common stock
registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to
a Registration Statement on Form S-1 will be deregistered by a
post-effective amendment.

The treatment of holders of Class 13a interests when the Plan
becomes effective, if confirmed, is described in the Plan and
Disclosure Statement.

COMPUCOM SYSTEMS: S&P Puts 'B+' Rating on CreditWatch Negative
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it placed its 'B+'
corporate credit rating on Dallas-based CompuCom Systems Inc.,
along with all related issue-level ratings on the company's debt,
on CreditWatch with negative implications.

With annual revenues of about $1.8 billion, CompuCom reported
modest revenue growth in the first half of 2010, benefiting from
new contract signings.

"Annual EBITDA levels have been relatively stable, as ongoing
cost-reduction efforts offset weak economic conditions and
customer pricing pressures," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Martha Toll-Reed.

Adjusted debt to EBITDA levels (including accounts receivable
financing and operating leases) have been in excess of 5x since
the company's 2008 acquisition of the North American operations of
Getronics N.V.  Discretionary cash flow was moderately negative in
2009 due to integration costs, but turned positive in 2010 as
integration efforts are nearing completion.

S&P will meet with management before resolving the CreditWatch.
S&P could lower the ratings to 'B' if, in its view, the company is
unlikely to sustain adequate covenant headroom over the near-to-
intermediate term.


CONTECH CONSTRUCTION: Moody's Junks Corporate Family Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Contech Construction
Products, Inc.'s Corporate Family Rating and Probability of
Default Rating to Caa1 from B2, and its Senior Secured Bank Debt
to B3 from B1.  Contech's ratings remain under review for further
downgrade.

These ratings/assessments were affected by this action:

  -- Corporate Family Rating downgraded to Caa1 from B2;

  -- Probability of Default Rating downgraded to Caa1 from B2;
     and,

  -- Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility downgraded to B3 (LGD3,
     32%) from B1 (LGD3, 34%).

                        Ratings Rationale

The rating downgrade results from the company's weak operating
performance and an uncertain liquidity profile, characterized in
part by tight covenant compliance.  Contech's construction end
markets continue to face significant pressures.  Moody's expects
that homebuilding will remain at anemic levels through 2011, and
that non-residential construction will continue to contract.
Although the federal government is spending on infrastructure
programs, states and municipalities are grappling with diminished
tax revenues and resultant deficits, reducing spending on
infrastructure maintenance and repair.

Moody's review will focus on: (1) assessing Contech's ability to
improve its liquidity profile through covenant relief or
rebalancing its capital structure, (2) its earnings and cash flow
outlook, and (3) its longer term solvency.

Contech Construction Products, Inc., headquartered in West
Chester, OH, manufactures and markets corrugated steel and plastic
pipe and fabricated products for use in highway, residential, and
commercial construction.


COYOTES HOCKEY: Debtors Skirt Trustee Appointment
-------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Law360 reports that National Hockey League team the
Phoenix Coyotes successfully dodged a move to assign it a trustee
on Wednesday, according to one of the attorneys for the team's
debtors-in-possession.  The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District
of Arizona quashed its own sua sponte motion to impose a trustee
or convert the case to a Chapter 7 liquidation, according to
Law360.

As reported in the TCR on Sept. 21, 2010, the city of Glendale,
Arizona, is trying to sell the Phoenix Coyotes to a buyer who will
keep the team in Phoenix.  According to reports, Matthew Hulsizer,
the chief executive officer of Chicago investment firm Peak6
Investments LP, has deposited $25 million into escrow for the
purchase of Phoenix Coyotes.  The city of Glendale has until Dec.
31, 2010, to complete the sale in Arizona otherwise the NHL will
market the Coyotes to group outside the Phoenix market.

NHL acquired the team for $140 million in October 2009 during
Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings.  NHL said it wants to sell the
team for $170 million.

                        About Coyotes Hockey

Dewey Ranch Hockey LLC, Arena Management Group, LLC, Coyotes
Holdings, LLC, and Coyotes Hockey, LLC -- owners and affiliates of
the Phoenix Coyotes National Hockey League team -- filed for
Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. D. Ariz. Case No. 09-09488) on
May 5, 2009.  The Debtors are represented by Thomas J. Salerno,
Esq., at Squire, Sanders & Dempsey, LLP, in Phoenix, and estimate
their assets and liabilities are between $100 million and
$500 million.

In the third quarter of 2009, Judge Redfield T. Baum approved the
sale of the Phoenix Coyotes to the National Hockey League, which
had bought the team to quash a plan by bidder Jim Balsillie's to
move the team to Ontario, Canada.  Coyotes was sent to Chapter 11
to effectuate a sale by owner Jerry Moyes to Mr. Balsillie.

The NHL is in the process of selling the team.


COZUMEL CARIBE: Seeks to Delay Bid for U.S. Bankruptcy Relief
-------------------------------------------------------------
Cozumel Caribe SA is seeking to delay its bid to have its
bankruptcy case recognized in the U.S., in the wake of an
objection that called the move "premature," Dow Jones' DBR Small
Cap reports.

According to the report, the Company was set to move forward with
its request for Chapter 15 protection at a hearing on
September 22, 2010.  However, the report relates, in a letter
addressed to Judge Martin Glenn of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in
Manhattan earlier this week, Cozumel Caribe attorney Jeffrey R.
Gleit sought to push back the company's request until a Mexican
court rules on the company's insolvency proceedings there.

Cozumel Caribe launched its Chapter 15 proceedings in Manhattan on
July 20, a few months after initiating its Mexican insolvency
proceedings, the report says.  However, the report relates, both
cases have yet to receive the blessing of the court.

                       About Cozumel Caribe

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


CREDIT ACCEPTANCE: S&P Raises Counterparty Credit Rating to 'BB'
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it raised its ratings
on Credit Acceptance Corp., including raising the long-term
counterparty credit and senior secured debt ratings to 'BB' from
'BB-'.  The outlook is stable.

S&P's ratings on Credit Acceptance Corp. are driven by the firm's
very strong earnings and leverage.  "The company's performance has
been excellent in difficult economic circumstances and S&P
believes management's differentiation strategy provides a buffer
against competitive threats," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Jeff Zaun.  The firm's monoline business profile,
dependence on wholesale funding, and concentrated ownership
partially offset its strengths.

With $1.3 billion in assets and $582 million of equity on June 30,
2010, Credit Acceptance is smaller than its peers, particularly
those with a nationwide franchise.  Management sticks to a highly
focused and disciplined strategy, and maintains an operational
structure that has enabled the firm to be consistently profitable
at lending to deep subprime customers.  There are no off-balance-
sheet assets and there is no goodwill.  The firm's ratio of debt
to adjusted total equity, which S&P estimates at 1.85x following
the share repurchase that the firm completed in July 2010, is
strong for the rating.  Its earnings have also remained robust
through the severe recession and weak recovery, with return on
average assets improving to an annualized rate of 13.3% through
the first six months of 2010 from 12.5% in 2009 and 6.0% in 2008.
These strong earnings have historically provided sufficient
cushion against modest changes in asset quality.

Credit Acceptance's concentration in deep subprime lending and its
dependence on wholesale funding partly offset these strengths.
The founder and Chairman of the Board, Donald A. Foss, owns 58% of
the company.  This presents key man, succession, and governance
risks because of Mr. Foss's large influence on the Board.

The stable outlook balances Credit Acceptance's very strong
performance after the economic downturn in 2007 against its
monoline business model and dependence on wholesale funding
markets.  Very strong leverage and very good earnings in the midst
of a deep recession have pushed the rating to a level that is high
for a wholesale-funded monoline lender.

Present earnings levels provide a significant cushion so that
lower profits would not result in a downgrade.  S&P could
downgrade Credit Acceptance if material growth in the firm's
purchase program (which is less differentiated from traditional
subprime lending programs) is coupled with significantly
deteriorating asset quality, earnings, or leverage metrics.  S&P
does not expect earnings to remain at their current, very high
levels.  S&P could upgrade the firm if its leverage and earnings
remain superior to other commercial finance companies' for an
extended period.

creditors of Crescent Resources LLC sued Duke Energy Corp. to
recover $1.19 billion plus other damages tied to a 2006 loan deal.

DAGAZ INTERNATIONAL: Files for Bankruptcy Under Chapter 7
---------------------------------------------------------
Adrianne Pasquarelli at Crain's New York Business reports that
home decorator Dagaz International Inc. filed for bankruptcy under

DENNY HECKER: Sued by Trustee for Cashing in on Insurance
---------------------------------------------------------
Jacqueline Palank, writing for Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review,
reports that bankruptcy trustee Randall L. Seaver is suing Denny
Hecker, accusing him of cashing in on insurance policies that
should be available for his creditors.

According to DBR, Mr. Seaver says Mr. Hecker converted more than
$120,000 of insurance policy checks into cash, Western Union money
orders and "a preloaded Mastercard."  While Mr. Hecker has
responded to Mr. Seaver's request to account for where the funds
went, Mr. Seaver says more than $20,000 still hasn't been
accounted for.

According to DBR, Mr. Seaver is asking the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
in Duluth, Minn., to force Mr. Hecker to immediately turn over the
funds he said Mr. Hecker wrongly tapped this summer.  Mr. Seaver
also wants to enjoin Mr. Hecker and girlfriend Christi Rowan from
doing just about anything -- "using, disposing, transferring,
encumbering, secreting or destroying" -- with the assets that
belong to Mr. Hecker's bankruptcy estate, including those assets
that may be "concealed" by Mr. Hecker.

When asked for comment, Mr. Hecker's bankruptcy and criminal
defense attorney, Barbara May, Esq., told the St. Paul Pioneer
Press that "you really can't order a debtor to turn over something
that he doesn't have."

                        About Denny Hecker

Dennis E. Hecker owned and operated dozens of auto dealerships,
car rental franchises, and other businesses until 2009. He filed a
voluntary chapter 7 petition (Bankr. D. Minn. Case No. 09-50779)
on June 4, 2009, after his auto empire collapsed into bankruptcy.

Chrysler Financial filed a dischargeability action (Bankr. D.
Minn. Adv. Pro. No. 09-5019) on July 8, 2009.  Chrysler Financial
alleged that $83 million of $350 million owed is nondischargeable
under 11 U.S.C. Sec. 523(a) because Mr. Hecker allegedly obtained
it through the use of false pretenses, false representations,
fraud, defalcation, and embezzlement.  The Honorable Robert J.
Kressel granted Chrysler Financial's motion for sanctions and
ordered $83 million of the judgment against Mr. Hecker, together
with accrued interest, not dischargeable in the Chapter 7
bankruptcy case.

Mr. Hecker has pleaded guilty to two fraud charges: concealing
assets from the bankruptcy court and lying to get multimillion-
dollar loans for his dealerships and leasing operation.


DINEEQUITY INC: Moody's Assigns 'Ba2' Rating on $50 Mil. Notes
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Ba2 rating to DineEquity
Inc's proposed $50 million guaranteed senior secured revolving
credit facility and $900 million guaranteed senior secured term
loan B, as well as a B3 rating to its $825 million senior
unsecured notes.  Moody's also assigned DineEquity a B2 Corporate
Family Rating and Probability of Default Rating.  The outlook is
stable.  Proceeds from the proposed note offering will be used to
re-finance existing debt.  Ratings are subject to final
documentation.

                        Ratings Rationale

DineEquity's ratings reflect its very high leverage and relatively
thin interest coverage, which position DineEquity weakly in the B2
category.  Ratings also reflect Moody's expectation that
historically high unemployment and intense promotional activity by
its competitors will continue to pressure operating performance.
However, the ratings also reflect the company's reasonable scale,
multiple concepts which add diversity, franchise based business
model that is less capital intensive and has lower earnings
volatility, diversified day part which boosts returns on invested
capital, and good liquidity.  The ratings also factor in Moody's
expectation that debt protection metrics will improve as the
company focuses on debt reduction.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's view that DineEquity's debt
protection measures will improve over the next twelve to eighteen
months despite persistently weak consumer spending as the company
focuses on debt reduction.  The outlook also reflects Moody's
expectation that the company will maintain good liquidity.

New ratings assigned:

  -- Corporate Family Rating at B2

  -- Probability of Default Rating at B2

  -- $50 million guaranteed senior secured revolver due 2015 at
     Ba2 (LGD 2, 21%)

  -- $900 million guaranteed senior secured term loan B due 2016
     at Ba2 (LGD 2, 21%)

  -- $825 million guaranteed senior unsecured notes due 2018 at B3
     (LGD 5, 76%)

Factors that could result in a downgrade would include an
inability to strengthen debt protection metrics from current
levels over the next twelve to eighteen months while maintaining
good liquidity.  Specifically, a downgrade could occur if
DineEquity is unable to reduce its Debt to EBITDA over the next
twelve to eighteen months to below 6.5 times or if EBITA to
interest approached 1.0 time.  A deterioration in liquidity could
also result in a downgrade.

Given the company's weak debt protection metrics a higher rating
over the intermediate term is unlikely.  However, factors that
could result in an upgrade would include stronger debt protection
metrics driven by solid operating performance and debt reduction.
Overall, an upgrade could occur if debt to EBITDA fell below 5.0
times and EBITA to interest approached 2.0 times.  A higher rating
would also require good liquidity.

DineEquity, owns, operates, and franchises, approximately 3,477
casual dining restaurants under the brand names International
House of Pancakes and Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar.  Annual
revenues are approximately $1.4 billion.


DINEEQUITY INC: S&P Assigns Corporate Credit Rating at 'B'
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Rating Services said it assigned its 'B'
corporate credit rating to Glendale, Calif.-based DineEquity Inc.
S&P also assigned its 'BB-' issue rating (two notches above the
corporate credit rating) to the company's proposed $950 million
senior secured credit facilities (a $50 million revolving credit
facility due 2015 and $900 million term loan due 2017).  The '1'
recovery rating indicates S&P's expectation of very high (90%-
100%) recovery in the event of a default.

S&P also assigned its 'CCC+' issue-level rating to the proposed
$825 million unsecured notes due 2018 (two notches below the
corporate credit rating).  The recovery rating of '6' indicates
S&P's expectation of negligible (0%-10%) recovery in the event of
a default.

DineEquity intends to used the proceeds from the $900 million term
loan and $825 million unsecured notes to fund the tender offer,
consent solicitation, and redemption for about $1.6 billion of
securitized debt currently outstanding under its subsidiaries
Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar and IHOP Restaurants.

"The rating on DineEquity reflects S&P's analysis that sales will
remain under pressure in 2010 as consumer spending stays weak in
the fragile economic recovery," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Ana Lai.  It also reflects S&P's expectation that
DineEquity will use the bulk of its free cash flow and proceeds
from the franchising of additional restaurants, if any, toward
debt reduction.  However, S&P believes leverage will remain
elevated because of the substantial amount of debt.


DUBAI WORLD: Gets Approval for $24.9 Billion Debt Plan
------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Dubai World received approval from creditors to alter
the terms on $24.9 billion of debt, more than nine months after
the state-owned holding company's proposal to delay repaying loans
sent emerging market stocks tumbling.

According to the report, the Company and its main creditor banks
agreed in May to restructure $14.4 billion of loans and $8.9
billion of government liabilities to resolve a crisis that roiled
global markets last year.  The company said banks would be paid
$4.4 billion in five years and another $10 billion over eight
years at below-market interest rates supported by assets sales.

ELENA HOME CARE: Atty. Sanctioned for Failure to Attend Hearing
---------------------------------------------------------------
In In re D'Angelo Camacho Carpo and Myrna Ayran Bautista-Carpo,
dba Elena Home Care, (Bankr. N.D. Calif. 09-32520), Judge Dennis
Montali on February 4, 2010, entered an order directing Timothy
Umbreit, Esq., to appear in person at a hearing on March 5, 2010,
to show cause why the Bander Law Firm should not be compelled to
disgorge all fees and retainers paid to it by the Debtors, and why
Mr. Umbreit, as the Debtors' principal bankruptcy counsel, should
not be personally sanctioned for failure to comply with the
court's prior directive to appear in person at a January 28 status
conference.  Mr. Umbreit did not appear at the March 5 hearing on
the Order to Show Cause and he did not file a written response to
the OSC seven days prior to the hearing.

The court entered an order on March 22, 2010, imposing $5,000 in
sanctions against Mr. Umbreit personally.  The Sanctions Order
directed Mr. Umbreit to pay that amount to Debtors, in care of
their new counsel, by April 5, 2010.  Mr. Umbreit has not made the
payment.

Mr. Umbreit filed a motion for reconsideration and for relief from
the Sanctions Order.  He did not seek a stay of the Sanctions
Order.  The court held a hearing on the motion for reconsideration
on April 30, 2010.

The Debtors paid $20,000 or more to Mr. Umbreit's firm, but
neither Mr. Umbreit nor any other attorney from his firm ever met
Debtors in person.

In a decision dated September 7, Judge Montali maintained that Mr.
Umbreit's conduct vis-a-vis the court orders and failure to file
status conference statements was conscious and willful.  Judge
Montali also held that Mr. Umbreit's his conduct in the
representation of Debtors was unprofessional and well below any
reasonable standard of care.  Judge Montali denied Mr. Umbreit's
motion for reconsideration.

The Bander Law Firm filed a chapter 7 petition (Bankr. C.D. Calif.
Case No. 10-15066) on February 12, 2010.  Mr. Umbreit has not
filed bankruptcy.

ECOSPHERE TECHNOLOGIES: Earns $4.7 Million in June 30 Quarter
-------------------------------------------------------------
Ecosphere Technologies, Inc., filed its quarterly report on Form
10-Q, reporting net income applicable to Ecosphere Technologies,
Inc. common stock of $4.7 million on $2.1 million of revenue for
the three months ended June 30, 2010, compared with a net loss
applicable to Ecosphere Technologies, Inc. common stock of
$18.5 million on $154,041 of revenue for the same period of 2009.

At June 30, 2010, the Company had a working capital deficiency of
$4.9 million, a stockholders' deficit of $1.8 million and had
outstanding convertible preferred stock that is redeemable under
limited circumstances for roughly $3.8 million (including accrued
dividends).  The Company has not attained a level of revenues
sufficient to support recurring expenses, and the Company does not
presently have the resources to settle previously incurred
obligations.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2010, showed
$9.9 million in total assets, $7.9 million in total liabilities,
$3.8 million in redeemable convertible cumulative preferred stock,
and a stockholders' deficit of $1.8 million.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on April 6, 2010,
Salberg & Company, P.A., in Boca Raton, Fla., expressed
substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a
going concern, following its 2009 results.  The independent
auditors noted of the Company's net loss for 2009, and working
capital, stockholders' and accumulated deficits at December 31,
2009.

EOS PREFERRED: Earns $1.0 Million in June 30 Quarter
----------------------------------------------------
EOS Preferred Corporation filed its quarterly report on Form 10-Q,
reporting net income of $1.0 million on net revenue of
$1.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2010, compared
with a net loss of $476,000 on ($148,000) of net revenue for the
same period of 2009.

The increase in net income was primarily due to an increase in the
gain on loans held for sale of $1.8 million.  In the second
quarter of 2010 there was a gain on loans held for sale of
$756,000 as compared to a loss of $1.0 million in the second
quarter of 2009.

All of the mortgage assets in the Company's loan portfolio at
June 30, 2010, were acquired from Capital Crossing Bank or Aurora
Bank and it is anticipated that substantially all additional
mortgage assets, if any are acquired in the future, will be
acquired from Aurora Bank.  As of June 30, 2010, the Company's
loan portfolio had a carrying value of $27.3 million and an unpaid
principal balance of $39.7 million.  There were no loans purchased
or sold during the three months ended June 30, 2010.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2010, showed $85.0 million
in total assets, $147,000 in total liabilities, and stockholders'
equity of $84.9 million.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on April 6, 2010,
Ernst & Young LLP, in New York, expressed substantial doubt about
Capital Crossing Preferred Corporation's ability to continue as a
going concern, following its 2009 results.  The independent
auditors noted that on September 15, 2008, Lehman Brothers
Holdings Inc., indirect parent company to Aurora Bank FSB, and
ultimate parent company of Capital Crossing Preferred Corporation,
filed a voluntary petition under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy
Code.  The independent auditors also noted that Aurora Bank, the
sole owner of the common stock of the Company, is subject to a
Cease and Desist Order, dated January 26, 2009, and a Prompt
Corrective Action Directive, dated February 4, 2009, issued by the
Office of Thrift Supervision, requiring Aurora Bank, among other
matters, to submit a capital restoration plan and a liquidity
management plan, and imposing restrictions on certain activities
of Aurora Bank and Capital Crossing Preferred Corporation.

"The bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers and the ability of the OTS to
regulate and restrict the business and operations of Capital
Crossing Preferred Corporation, in light of the Cease and Desist
Order and the Prompt Corrective Action Directive, raise
substantial doubt about Capital Crossing Preferred Corporation's
ability to continue as a going concern."

The Company discloses in its latest 10-Q that at June 30, 2010,
according to a public filing with the OTS, Aurora Bank's capital
ratios were above the thresholds required to achieve the "well-
capitalized" designation.  However, due to the continuation of the
provisions of the Order and the PCA Directive, Aurora Bank was
deemed to be "adequately capitalized".  The classification of
Aurora Bank's capitalization level is subject to review and
acceptance by the OTS.  The Order and the PCA Directive were still
effective as of the date of issuance of this interim report.  The
OTS may direct in writing at any time the automatic exchange of
the Series B and Series D preferred stock for preferred shares of
Aurora Bank.

FREESCALE SEMICONDUCTOR: S&P Assigns 'CCC' Senior Unsec. Rating
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it assigned its 'CCC'
senior unsecured rating and '6' recovery rating to Austin, Texas-
based Freescale Semiconductor Inc.'s senior unsecured notes due
2020.  The '6' recovery rating indicated expectations for
negligible (0%-10%) recovery of principal in the event of payment
default.  The company intends to use proceeds of the new notes to
retire existing senior unsecured notes.

"The rating on Freescale," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Lucy Patricola, "reflects S&P's expectation that the company will
continue on its current path to generate over $800 million of
EBITDA for 2010.  S&P expects leverage to remain high but free
cash flow to be slightly positive, preserving existing cash
balances of $1 billion."

The proposed transaction does not affect S&P's 'B-' corporate
credit rating or its '6' recovery rating on senior unsecured
issues.

FREESCALE SEMICONDUCTOR: Moody's Assigns 'Caa2' Rating on Notes
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Caa2 rating to Freescale
Semiconductor, Inc.'s proposed $500 million issuance of senior
unsecured notes due 2020.  The rating outlook is stable.  Net
proceeds are expected to be used to repay a portion of the
$2.0 billion of aggregate senior unsecured debt maturing 2014
($1.269 billion senior unsecured notes; $179 million senior
unsecured floating rate notes; and $537 million senior unsecured
toggle notes).  The assigned ratings are subject to review of
final documentation and no material change in the terms and
conditions of the transaction as advised to Moody's.  Moody's
expect to withdraw ratings on any of the 2014 tranches that are
retired in their entirety.

This is a summary of the rating actions and Moody's current
ratings for Freescale:

* $500 Million Senior Unsecured Notes due 2020 -- Caa2 (LGD-5,
  80%)

* Corporate Family Rating (New) -- Caa1

* Probability of Default Rating - Caa1

* $ 587 Million (originally $750 Million) Senior Secured Revolving
  Credit Facility due 2012 - B2 (LGD-3, 30%)

* $2.251 Billion (originally $2.265 Billion) Senior Secured
  Extended Maturity Term Loan due 2016 - B2 (LGD-3, 30%)

* $ 750 Million 10.125% Senior Secured Notes due 2018 -- B2 (LGD-
  3, 30%)

* $1.380 Billion 9.25% Senior Secured Notes due 2018 -- B2 (LGD-3,
  30%)

* $1.269 Billion (originally $2.35 Billion) 8.875% Senior
  Unsecured Notes due 2014 - Caa2 (LGD-5, 80%)

* $ 179 Million (originally $500 Million) Senior Unsecured
  Floating Rate Notes due 2014 - Caa2 (LGD-5, 80%)

* $ 537 Million (originally $1.5 Billion) 9.125%/9.875% Senior
  Unsecured Toggle Notes due 2014 - Caa2 (LGD-5, 80%)

* $ 764 Million (originally $1.6 Billion) 10.125% Senior
  Subordinated Unsecured Notes due 2016 - Caa3 (LGD-6, 94%)

* Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating - SGL- 3

                        Ratings Rationale

Though interest expense will increase, Moody's views
constructively this latest refinancing and extension of
Freescale's approximate $7.7 billion of LBO debt.  The current
transaction somewhat alleviates the concentration of debt maturing
in 2014, given Freescale's limited ability to de-lever from
internal sources.  Following this refinancing, Freescale will have
roughly $1.5 billion of debt due in 2014, its second closest
maturity following the company's revolver ($532 million
outstanding) due in 2012.  Moody's view this transaction as a
continuation of Freescale's effort to proactively improve its
capital structure and create a more evenly distributed debt
maturity profile.  The maturity extension also buys the company
additional time to transform new product categories into
meaningful contributors of profitable growth.

In February, Freescale amended its credit agreement to extend the
maturity date to 2016 on $2.265 billion of term loan B facility
debt and issued $750 million of 10.125% senior secured notes due
2018.  Approximately $112 million was used to pay down a portion
of the revolver and $634 million was used to pay down the non-
extended portion of the term loan B facility due 2013.  In April,
the company issued $1.38 billion of 9.25% senior secured notes due
2018, which was used to retire the remaining $472 million of the
secured term loan B facility and the remaining $917 million of the
secured incremental term loan due 2014.

Freescale's Caa1 CFR continues to be constrained by the company's
substantial leverage and thin interest coverage, as well as
Moody's expectation of very modest free cash flow generation
relative to its large debt load.  The CFR also reflects a
significantly reduced earnings contribution from the company's
cellular segment, offset by modest earnings from Freescale's
recent entr‚e into higher growth sub-segments within consumer and
industrial markets.  Since Freescale is exposed to the inherently
cyclical and volatile semiconductor industry, Moody's remain
concerned that Freescale's highly leveraged capital structure may
prove unsustainable if cash flows were to deteriorate for an
extended period.

The rating is supported by Moody's view that Freescale maintains
strong market leadership positions and a rich product portfolio
characterized by technological breadth; its somewhat favorable
revenue diversification across products, geographies and
customers; its refocused R&D program to drive future revenue
growth in extended market segments; and its "asset-light" model
that enables it to reduce expenses and capex in response to weak
market conditions.

The stable rating outlook reflects Moody's expectation that
following the severe downturn in profits and cash flow caused by
the recession, the company's operating performance will continue
to improve as a result of the recovery in the global demand
environment and Freescale's progress in eliminating $700 million
of annualized costs (full $800 million cost savings expected
during 2010).  The stable outlook incorporates Moody's belief that
semiconductor end market demand will demonstrate growth in 2010/11
and Freescale's revenue growth will be in line with its
addressable markets.

The rating could experience upward pressure if Freescale
demonstrates a sustained return to improved profitability and
positive FCF generation, plus de-leveraging to at least 7.0x
through sustainable expanded EBITDA or debt reduction without
impairing its liquidity profile.

The rating could experience downward pressure to the extent demand
for Freescale's core embedded processors were to weaken and
earnings were to fall short of expectations or liquidity
experiences contraction, as evidenced by cash balances falling
below $1 billion for an extended period.

Freescale's liquidity is adequate as reflected in its SGL-3
speculative grade liquidity rating.  The liquidity assessment is
principally driven by the company's $1.1 billion of cash balances
given that, over the next four quarters, Moody's expect Freescale
to generate very modest FCF relative to its large debt load.
Despite the absence of financial maintenance covenants, financial
flexibility remains diminished, in Moody's opinion, since the
company has drawn $532 million under its revolver, which has a
committed capacity of $587 million.

The last rating action was on April 7, 2010, when Moody's assigned
a B2 rating to the company's $1.38 billion 9.25% senior secured
notes due 2018.

Headquartered in Austin, TX, Freescale Semiconductor, Inc.,
designs and manufactures embedded semiconductors for the
transportation, networking and wireless markets.  The company was
separated from Motorola via IPO in July 2004 and taken private in
a leveraged buyout in December 2006.  Revenues for the twelve
months ended July 2, 2010, were $3.97 billion.

GANNETT CO: S&P Gives Positive Outlook, Affirms 'BB' Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it revised its rating
outlook on McLean, Virginia-based Gannett Co. Inc. to positive
from stable.  All existing ratings on the company, including the
'BB' corporate credit rating, were affirmed.

In addition, S&P assigned Gannett Co. Inc.'s $250 million senior
notes due 2015 and $250 million senior notes due 2018 S&P's issue-
level rating of 'BB' (at the same level as the 'BB' corporate
credit rating on the company).  S&P also assigned the notes a
recovery rating of '3', indicating its expectation of meaningful
(50% to 70%) recovery for noteholders in the event of a payment
default.

The company plans to use proceeds from the notes to reduce
revolving credit and term loan balances.  The notes are guaranteed
by all of Gannett's subsidiaries that guarantee obligations under
the company's credit facilities and, as such, they rank pari passu
with the facilities and other guaranteed notes issued by Gannett.

Gannett had total debt outstanding of $2.6 billion as of June 30,
2010.

"The outlook revision to positive reflects declining debt
leverage, resulting from aggressive debt repayment in 2009 and in
the first half of 2010 (exceeding $1 billion during the period),"
said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Hal F. Diamond.  S&P
believes that Gannett's moderating declines in publishing ad
revenue and its cost-saving initiatives will likely enable the
company to continue to generate meaningful discretionary cash flow
for the remainder of 2010 and 2011.  This will provide Gannett the
ability to continue to reduce debt leverage (adjusted for
operating leases and pension obligations) to roughly 2.5x at year-
end 2010 and 2.3x at year-end 2011, absent significant
acquisitions or stepped-up shareholder returns.


GENERAL GROWTH: Hughes Heirs Deal to Be Presented at Plan Hearing
-----------------------------------------------------------------
General Growth Properties, Inc., and its 125 debtor affiliates
submitted to Judge Allan L. Gropper of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the Southern District of New York a supplemental disclosure to
the Disclosure Statement and the Third Amended Joint Plan of
Reorganization on September 20, 2010.

The Supplemental Disclosure incorporates a $230 million settlement
executed by GGP and Platt W. Davis III, David G. Elkins and David
R. Lummis, as representatives of holders and beneficiaries under
the Contingent Stock Agreement executed by The Rouse Company, a
company acquired by the Debtors in 2004.

"We are very pleased to reach a mutually beneficial settlement
agreement with the heirs of Howard Hughes regarding the Summerlin
property," Thomas H. Nolan Jr., president and chief operating
officer of GGP, said in a public statement.

"With this agreement, GGP settles one of the last remaining
material issues impacting the capital structure of the new GGP and
'Spinco' as we continue our steady march toward emergence from
bankruptcy.  It has always been our preference to reach an
agreement with the Hughes heirs, with whom we have had a very
successful venture for many years.  The Summerlin master planned
community is one of the premier communities in the nation and has
a long track record of strong and consistent financial
performance.  It is indicative of the type and quality of assets
that will comprise 'Spinco,' the GGP spin-off company that will
consist of our portfolio of master planned communities and other
real estate assets with long-term value creation potential," Mr.
Nolan added.

               Terms of Settlement Agreement

The Holders are former stockholders of The Hughes Corp. or their
successors.  In the 1950s and 1960s, Howard Hughes acquired large
swaths of real estate in the Las Vegas area.  Mr. Hughes died in
1976 leaving behind a web of operating companies in different
industries, about 49,000 acres of real estate, and a well-
renowned dispute over his estate.  By the mid-1990s, the
administrators of Howard Hughes' estate had divested many assets,
leaving THC with about 24,000 acres of land in Nevada and
California, including about 22,500 acres that would become the
Summerlin MPC.

In 1996, THC sold itself to The Rouse Company, but the parties
were unable to agree on the value of the undeveloped real estate.
The parties agreed to the CSA which is a deferred payment
arrangement agreement designed to allow the Hughes Heirs to
realize about one-half the value of the undeveloped land as the
community was developed over time and land was sold to builders.
The CSA contemplates a final payment to the Hughes Heirs based
upon a valuation, as of December 31, 2009, of the remaining
unsold and developable CSA assets including the Summerlin MPC.
In August 2004, GGP acquired Rouse and assumed the obligations of
The Rouse Company under the CSA.

To resolve all disputes regarding the treatment of all obligations
to holders under the CSA, the parties entered into the Settlement
Agreement on September 17, 2010.  The salient terms of the
Settlement Agreement are:

(A) In full and final satisfaction of all rights, claims or
    interests held by the Holders under the CSA or their Claim
    Nos. 7054, 7635, 7673, 7692, 7892, 5266 and 6524, the
    Debtors will provide the Holders with a total of
    $230 million in value to be paid in accordance with the Plan.

(B) All of the Debtors' obligations to the CSA Representatives
    and to the Holders under the CSA and other related
    agreements will be satisfied in full by payment in full of
    the Settlement Amount.  Subject to payment in full of the
    Settlement Amount, the Debtors will be unconditionally
    released and forever discharged as of the effective date of
    the Plan from any and all claims, interests, lawsuits,
    judgments, demands, debts, rights, causes of action,
    obligations, and liabilities whatsoever, including all
    claims, debts, interests, rights or obligations under the
    CSA and the Related Agreements that were or could have been
    asserted against the Debtors in the Claims.  Upon
    distribution of the Settlement Payment, the Claims will be
    deemed satisfied in full and will be expunged from the
    claims register.

(C) The CSA and the Related Agreements will be terminated as to
    the Debtors as of the Effective Date of the Plan, subject to
    the payment in full of the Settlement Amount; provided,
    however, that the CSA, the Related Agreements, and the
    Consenting Holder Agreements will be preserved and continue
    in full force and effect as between the Holders and the CSA
    Representatives.

(D) The Plan will provide that the Debtors will pay $10 million
    of the Settlement Amount in cash, in immediately available
    funds, after the Effective Date.  The Plan will provide that
    the Debtors will have the right and option to pay the
    remaining $220 million of the Settlement Amount in any
    combination of cash or freely tradable New GGP Common Stock.
    If paid in stock, the conversion price will be based upon a
    10-day weighted average share price formula.  Distributions
    to holders of Allowed Hughes Heirs Obligations are subject
    to reduction on account of the withholding of any Diversion
    Amounts, which will be payable as directed by the CSA
    Representatives.

(E) The Plan will provide that the Holders under the CSA and the
    CSA Representatives will be deemed to have given the
    releases as set forth in the Plan notwithstanding any
    election to the contrary on Plan voting ballots.  The
    Debtors will amend the Plan accordingly to include the CSA
    Representatives in the parties receiving releases, and the
    Plan will include releases given by the members of Class
    4.17 Hughes Heirs Obligations to the CSA Representatives.

(F) Upon approval of the Hughes Heirs Supplemental Disclosure
    and resolicitation, the CSA Representatives will withdraw
    the Motion to Determine Claim; provided, however, that the
    Claim Determination Motion may be reinstated in the event
    the Settlement Agreement is terminated.

GGP's lead bankruptcy counsel, Marcia L. Goldstein, Esq., at Weil,
Gotshal & Manges LLP, in New York, further noted that the
Settlement Agreement obviates the need to continue appraisal work
regarding the valuation of the Summerlin and resolves numerous
smaller valuation disputes between the parties.  Indeed, Kris
Hudson of The Wall Street Journal stated that pursuant to the CSA,
GGP and the Hughes Heirs had received their own appraisals for the
land's value but had not divulged them to each other, according to
people familiar with the matter.  Mr. Hudson added that a third
appraisal is yet to be completed.

The Settlement Agreement is subject to approval by the Court as
part of confirmation of the Plan scheduled for October 21, 2010.

In other modifications, the Supplemental Disclosure also appends
proposed amendments in the Plan to accommodate the terms of the
Settlement Agreement, a full-text copy of which is available for

                   Re-solicitation of Votes
                      of Hughes Holders

In light of the Debtors' filing of the Supplemental Disclosure to
the Disclosure Statement and Third Amended Joint Plan of
Reorganization, the Plan Debtors seek the Court's permission to:

  (i) send the Supplemental Disclosure to all of the holders of
      Class 4.17 Hughes Heirs Obligations; and

(ii) re-solicit votes of the Holders using proposed procedures.

Although the Court determined in August 2010, that the Disclosure
Statement contained adequate information regarding treatment of
the Hughes Heirs Obligations under the Plan, the Supplemental
Disclosure is appropriate because a subsequent development -- the
Settlement Agreement -- provides further clarity on this issue,
Marcia L. Goldstein, Esq., at Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP, in New
York, stresses.

While the CSA Representatives have authority from the vast
majority of the Holders to vote on their behalf, they do not have
consent from two holders that hold about 0.5% of the interests
under the CSA, Ms. Goldstein says.  The Supplemental Disclosure
will thus explain that the CSA Representatives, who represent
about 99.5% of the Holders, now support the Settlement Agreement
and the Plan, she points out.

Re-solicitation is also appropriate because certain of the
Holders already may have voted without the benefit of information
regarding the Settlement Agreement, Ms. Goldstein tells the
Court.  Thus, to ensure that all the Holders of the Hughes Heirs
Obligations vote based on the same information, the Plan Debtors
ask the Court to declare the previously distributed ballots are
void and that votes cast on the voided ballots will not be
counted.

Specifically, the Plan Debtors will resolicit votes for Class
4.17, and that re-solicitation packages will include a new re-
solicitation ballot and the Supplemental Disclosure.  The Plan
Debtors also propose that the deadline for the Holders to vote on
the Plan will be extended to October 14, 2010.

The Plan Debtors believe that re-solicitation can be accomplished
on an expedited timeline and will not delay confirmation.  The
Debtors propose this timeline for re-solicitation:

  September 23, 2010               -- Hearing on the Debtors'
                                      Supplemental Disclosure
                                      Motion

  September 24 to October 14, 2010 -- Re-solicitation of the
                                      Hughes Heirs

  October 7, 2010                  -- Deadline for objection to
                                      Plan

  October 14, 2010                 -- Confirmation Hearing

No class member will be prejudiced by this process because the
voting deadline will be extended to October 14, 2010, and any
Holder wishing to reaffirm a previous vote, or change his or her
vote, can do so simply by mailing a second ballot, Ms. Goldstein
assures the Court.

At the Plan Debtors' behest, the Court shortened notice period
with respect to the Supplemental Disclosure Motion and set the
Supplemental Disclosure Motion for hearing on September 23, 2010,
which is also the objection deadline.  Ms. Goldstein emphasized
that the Settlement Agreement states that it is subject to
termination if the Court does not approve the re-solicitation on
or before September 30.

GENERAL GROWTH: Receives Nod for Corporate Structure Deals
----------------------------------------------------------
General Growth Properties, Inc., and its units received the
Court's authority for General Growth Properties Inc., in its sole
discretion, to take or cause to be taken any corporate actions
permitted by applicable law and the respective Debtor or non-
Debtor affiliate's organizational documents, and determined by
General Growth to be necessary or appropriate to implement the
transactions.

To streamline administration of its financial accounting and tax
reporting, General Growth plans to merge, dissolve, convert or
consolidate certain Debtor and non-Debtor affiliates.  These
transactions, known as "Corporate Structure Transactions," will
either eliminate minority interests or are a step towards the
ultimate goal of eliminating minority interests held by
approximately six Debtor and fifteen non-Debtor entities, Stephen
A. Youngman, Esq., at Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP, in New York,
tells the Court.

The aggregate value of all property interests to be transferred,
consisting primarily of less than 1% ownership interests in other
entities, pursuant to the proposed Corporate Structure
Transactions is estimated at approximately $3.1 million.  Mr.
Youngman says General Growth, as a matter of ordinary course,
undertook these types of transactions before the Petition Date.
While General Growth's proposed Plan of Reorganization
contemplates that it may undertake similar corporate restructuring
transactions in connection with or after the effective date of the
Plan, General Growth is seeking authority now, in an abundance of
caution, so that it may, with respect to these Restructured
Entities, proceed with the Corporate Structure Transactions now,
prior to confirmation of the Plan, Mr. Youngman tells the Court.
These Corporate Structure Transactions are the same type of
transactions undertaken outside of Chapter 11 in the ordinary
course prior to the Petition Date, he says.

General Growth, Mr. Youngman relates, intends to take or cause to
be taken certain corporate actions, including, without limitation:

    (i) causing any or all of the Restructured Entities to be
        merged into or contributed to certain Debtors or non
        Debtor affiliates, dissolved or otherwise consolidated
        or converted;

   (ii) transferring Assets between or among certain Debtors
        and non-Debtor affiliates;

  (iii) changing the legal name of any one or more of the
        Restructured Entities; and

   (iv) engaging in other transactions or taking other and
        further actions permitted by applicable law and the
        respective Debtor's or non-Debtor affiliate's
        organizational documents and determined by General
        Growth to be necessary or appropriate to implement the
        aforementioned transactions.

GENERAL MOTORS: Treasury Must Sell Shares at $133.78 to Break-Even
------------------------------------------------------------------
Sharon Terlep, writing for The Wall Street Journal, reports that
the Obama administration official overseeing the Troubled Asset
Relief Program said the U.S. government needs to sell all its
stock in General Motors Co. at an average price of $133.78 a share
to fully recoup the $49.5 billion it spent to rescue the auto
maker.  Ms. Terlep notes that price is $39.15 greater than the
highest level shares in the old GM ever reached, during the boom
in pickup trucks and sport-utility vehicles in 2000.

Ms. Terlep reports that Neil Barofsky -- special inspector general
for the $700 billion that was used to bail out GM and Chrysler
Group LLC as well as other distressed companies last year -- also
said he will initiate a review of GM's July acquisition of
subprime lender AmeriCredit Corp.

According to Ms. Terlep, Mr. Barofsky's comments came in response
to an August letter from Republican Sen. Charles Grassley of Iowa,
who asked for an analysis of GM's planned stock offering this fall
and the government's chances of getting back the money it put into
the company.  Mr. Grassley also requested details on GM's decision
to buy AmeriCredit for $3.5 billion in a move to bolster auto
lending.

According to Ms. Terlep, Mr. Barofsky's letter said the review of
the AmeriCredit purchase, which would be part of an audit of the
initial public offering, would seek to understand any role the
Treasury played in "reviewing, approving or otherwise
participating" in the decision.

A portion of the U.S. stake will be offered to investors in
November.  Additional shares are likely to be sold in later
offerings.  It could take the U.S. years to sell its entire stake.

Ms. Terlep reports that people familiar with the thinking of GM
and the Treasury said the price at which the government sells its
stock in the November IPO will likely fall below $133.78.  The
sources told the Journal the government could have a chance to
break even if GM and the U.S. economy rebound and the stock
fetches higher prices in follow-on offerings.

According to the Journal, Mr. Barofsky said in a letter that was
dated Aug. 30 but surfaced Wednesday that the break-even share
price doesn't factor in IPO costs that include $7.5 million to
advisory firm Lazard Ltd or underwriters' payments of 0.75% of the
proceeds.

The Journal also reports that Stephen Spivey Frost & Sullivan's
Automotive & Transportation practice, said the depressed U.S. auto
market and tenuous financial markets make hitting the price target
unlikely in the near term, but even reaching that goal over time
will be a stretch.

The Journal further notes GM would need to achieve a market value
of about $70 billion for the U.S. to recoup its investment.  Ford
Motor Co., which sells fewer cars than GM globally but has been
reporting strong profits, has a market capitalization of about $43
billion. Toyota Motor Corp. is valued at about $113 billion.

GM didn't respond to a request for comment, Ms. Terlep says.

GENON ESCROW: Fitch Assigns Issuer Default Rating at 'B'
--------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has assigned an initial 'B' Issuer Default Rating to
GenOn Escrow Corp.

Fitch has also assigned ratings to GenOn Escrow's proposed
offering:

  -- $550 million 9.875% senior unsecured notes due 2020 'BB-
     /RR1';

  -- $675 million 9.5% senior unsecured notes due 2018 'BB-/RR1'.

The Rating Outlook is Stable.

The notes, as well as the term and revolving credit facilities
described below, are being issued as part of a financing plan
associated with the planned merger between RRI Energy (RRI; IDR:
'B') and Mirant Corp. (IDR: 'B+') to create GenOn Energy Inc. Upon
issuance of the senior unsecured notes by GenOn Escrow the funds
will be deposited into a segregated escrow account pending
completion of this merger.  If the merger is not completed on or
before Dec. 31, 2010, or the merger is terminated, GenOn Escrow
will be required to redeem the notes at 100% of the issue price
plus accrued and unpaid interest.

Fitch is also assigning ratings to the proposed $700 million
seven-year senior secured term loan facility, and $788 million
five-year senior secured revolving credit facility at 'BB/RR1'.
The term loan and credit facility are part of a credit agreement
entered into by RRI Energy, which is to be renamed as GenOn
following merger close.  Upon the closing of the new credit
facility and the term loan, which is expected concurrently with
the closing date of the merger, the obligations under the new
credit facility and the term loan will be guaranteed by certain of
RRI's and MIR's existing assets.

On April 11, 2010, RRI and MIR announced that they have entered
into a definitive agreement to create GenOn in a deal structured
as an all-stock, tax-free merger.  Under the terms of the merger
agreement MIR shareholders will receive a fixed ratio of 2.835
shares of RRI stock for each share of MIR common stock they own.
Following the close of transaction MIR will own approximately 54%
of the equity of the combined company and RRI Energy stockholders
will own approximately 46%.  As a combined entity, GenOn will have
approximately 24,700 megawatts of electric generating capacity and
a pro forma market capitalization of $3.1 billion.  As per the
financing conditions associated with the merger, GenOn Escrow is
issuing this new debt plus the new RRI Energy term loan and credit
facility to replace these:

  -- $279 million in RRI secured bonds due 2014 (rated 'BB/RR1');

  -- $371 million in Pennsylvania Economic Development Financing
     Authority (PEDFA) Reliant Energy Seward, LLC Project secured
     notes due 2036 (rated 'BB/RR1');

  -- $500 million senior secured revolver due 2012 (rated
     'BB/RR1');

  -- $250 million letter of credit facility due 2014 (rated
     'BB/RR1');

  -- $307 million in Mirant North America senior secured
     term loan due 2013 ('BB/RR1');

  -- $850 million in MNA 7.375% senior notes due 2013 (rated 'BB-
     /RR1');

  -- $755 million MNA revolving credit facility due 2012.

Following merger close, Fitch expects GenOn's capital structure to
consist of Reliant Energy Mid Atlantic and Mirant Mid Atlantic
lease obligations; RRI's remaining unsecured notes $575 million
due 2014 and $725 million due in 2015, which are expected to be
pari passu to GenOn's new offering; the secured term loan due 2017
and credit facility due 2015; and $850 million in Mirant Americas
Generation notes due 2021 and 2031.  Given the proposed capital
structure leverage at GenOn is expected to remain relatively high
over the next two years in part due to the muted earnings driven
by the current low power price environment, which Fitch expects to
continue.  Fitch's expectations for 2011 Debt to EBITDA is roughly
6.9 times, including lease obligations, moving only slightly lower
in 2012 to 6.5x.  However, maturities should be manageable with no
significant maturities until 2014 and more than adequate liquidity
at GenOn.  Both entities will bring to the merger high cash
liquidity which the combined organization will have available to
deal with debt maturities and future commodity market price
fluctuation.  The combined cash balance of the companies as of
Dec. 31, 2009, was $2.9 billion.  Fitch's expectation is for year-
end 2011 liquidity to be slightly higher than $1.5 billion
excluding any revolver availability.

The primary credit benefit of the merger transaction is the likely
achievement of operating efficiency and cost savings projected by
the management of both companies (estimated at $150 million per
annum to be fully realized by 2012, following a restructuring
charge of roughly $125 million spread over the next two years),
savings which are currently unachievable by MIR and RRI on a
standalone basis.  Additional credit benefits include a greater
focus of cash flow stability and the impact of increased
collateral at the security level due to the increased asset
portfolio.  Management strategy is expected to be slightly more
conservative in the face of the current weak pricing environment.
Following the merger, Fitch expects a greater focus on hedging and
capacity contracts in an effort to ensure a predictable cash flow
stream more in line with Mirant's past practices, which have
focused on hedging on a rolling four- to five-year basis on both
its power and fuel.

Meanwhile, doubling the size of the generation portfolio by
merging the two companies will result in a more efficient scale of
operations, without materially altering the profile of the
generating fleet.  In determining recovery values, Fitch typically
uses an asset valuation methodology wherein Fitch considers the
dispatch for each asset within the generating fleet, projected
market clearing prices in the relevant region and estimates of
price volatility under distressed pricing scenarios to determine
asset cash flow and value and ultimately a stressed enterprise
value.  Using this approach, Fitch believes that both the secured
term loan and credit facility, as well as, the unsecured notes of
GenOn would have significant recovery in a default scenario While
power prices and demand remain weak and reserve margins high,
Fitch believes the longer-term asset value of GenOn's 24,700 MW
generation portfolio remains strong relative to its proposed
indebtedness given that roughly 30% of the portfolio is baseload
generation, which though coal fired is not easily or quickly
replaced or replicated.  This value is reflected in the strong
'RR1' Recovery Ratings.  Fitch's recovery analysis is intended to
provide a point of view on the relative recovery prospects for the
various debt issues; the actual enterprise valuation in an actual
default would likely vary significantly from projected levels
based on commodity prices, capital structure, reasons for default,
and capital market conditions at the time of default.

Mirroring the credit concerns facing the entire merchant
generating space, GenOn will continue to face ongoing challenges
with weak wholesale power prices, environmental rules and
compliance costs, and managing commodity price volatility.  As
with the other merchant generators, Fitch believes GenOn will be
faced with a weak operating environment, which will limit upside
performance in the near to medium term.  GenOn's performance
longer-term is going to be strongly correlated to economic
recovery and a meaningful return of power demand growth.  Fitch
believes that GenOn's hedging program will moderate earnings and
cash flow volatility, but power-price forward curves indicate
continued margin pressure for coal-fired generators such as GenOn.
Should natural gas prices remain near current levels of $4 per
billion cubic feet, power prices will likely remain low,
pressuring GenOn's operating margins and credit metrics.
Additionally there remains a high degree of uncertainty
surrounding Federal carbon legislation and the form and cost of
EPA regulation of greenhouse gas emission, coal ash disposal,
waste management, etc., which could have significant financial
impact given GenOn's generation portfolio's composition, which is
more heavily weighted toward coal-fired generation.

GenOn Escrow's Stable Outlook is reflective of Fitch's
expectations of cash flow and earnings stability due to GenOn's
expressed commitment towards hedging the majority of its expected
generation and fuel exposure.  Fitch would likely take a negative
rating action should any of these occur: power prices and demand

change significantly from expectations; or punitive regulation or
legislation impact GenOn's generation portfolio.  Positive ratings
actions are unlikely based on current expectations.


GENTEK HOLDING: S&P Assigns Corporate Credit Rating at 'B'
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it assigned its 'B'
corporate credit rating to GenTek Holding LLC after reviewing the
company's proposed dividend recapitalization.  The outlook is
stable.

Based on preliminary terms and conditions, S&P assigned a 'B'
issue-level rating (same as the 'B' corporate credit rating) and a
'3' recovery rating to GenTek's proposed $425 million term loan B
and $30 million revolving credit facility.  This indicates S&P's
expectation for meaningful (50%-70%) recovery in the event of a
payment default.

"Although the proposed debt-financed dividend recapitalization
weakens leverage and cash flow protection metrics, S&P expects the
financial profile to remain at a level appropriate for the current
rating," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Henry Fukuchi.

The proposed transaction will be funded by a new $425 million term
loan B and approximately $32 million in cash.  Total proceeds of
approximately $457 million will be used to distribute $152 million
to existing shareholders, refinance $289 million in existing term
loans, and to pay transaction fees.  Incremental debt of
approximately $136 million will increase total adjusted debt to
EBITDA pro forma for the transaction as of June 30, 2010, to 3.6x
from 2.7x and decrease funds from operations to total adjusted
debt to 19.2% from 23.4%.  Although S&P expects reasonable cash
flow generation and business prospects to remain stable in the
near term, S&P views this transaction as a continued indication of
a very aggressive financial policy.


GLOBAL DIVERSIFIED: Earns $159,900 in July 31 Quarter
-----------------------------------------------------
Global Diversified Industries, Inc., filed its quarterly report on
Form 10-Q, reporting net income of $159,866 on $2.2 million of
revenue for the three months ended July 31, 2010, compared to net
income of $1.1 million on $12,441 of revenue for the same period
of 2009.

Included in other income (expense) for the three months ended
July 31, 2010, is a $349,387 gain resulting from a change in the
fair value of derivatives, as compared to a $2.3 million gain for
the three months ended July 31, 2009.

The Company's balance sheet at July 31, 2010, showed $13.6 million
in total assets, $9.4 million in total liabilities, $11.0 million
in convertible redeemable preferred stock, and a stockholders'
deficit of $6.8 million.

M&K CPAS, PLLC, in Houston, expressed substantial doubt about the
Company's ability to continue as a going concern, following its
results for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2010.  The independent
auditors noted that the Company has suffered recurring losses and
has generated negative cash flows from operations.

HERITAGE CONSOLIDATED: Asks for Court's Nod to Obtain Financing
---------------------------------------------------------------
Heritage Consolidated, LLC, and Heritage Standard Corporation ask
for authority from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern
District of Texas to obtain postpetition secured financing from
lenders led by CIT Capital USA Inc. and CIT Capital Securities
LLC, as DIP agent and arranger.

The DIP lenders have committed to provide up to $4.6 million,
which will consist of: (i) an initial tranche in the principal
amount of $2.6 million to fund operating expenses; and an
additional tranche in the principal amount of $2 million to fund
capital expenses covering sidetrack operations relating to the Pat
Howell Well.

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

               http://ResearchArchives.com/t/s?6b8b

Joe E. Marwill, Esq., at Munsch Hardt Kopf & Harr, P.C., explains
that the Debtors need the money to pay postpetition operating
expenses.  A copy of the operating budget is available for free
at http://ResearchArchives.com/t/s?6b8c

Borrowings will be repaid in full and the Commitment will
terminate 120 days after Consolidated's petition date, or 35 days
after the entry of the first interim order approving the DIP
Credit Facility if the final order approving the DIP Credit
Facility on a final basis has not been entered prior to the
expiration of the 35-day period.

The obligations under the DIP Credit Facility will be secured
by first priority security interests and liens to be granted by
HSC in, to, and on all of its assets and first priority security
interests and liens to be granted by Consolidated in, to, and on
all of its assets.

With respect to the Tranche A of the DIP Loan, prior to the
Effective Date, the non-default interest rate will be the DIP
Agent's Rate (the same as the Prime Rate under the Credit
Agreements, which will be the interest rate publicly announced
by JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., from time to time as its general
reference rate of interest, which prime rate will change upon
any change in such announced or published general reference
interest rate and which prime rate may not be the lowest interest
rate charged by the Administrative Agent or the Lenders, provided
that in no event will the rate be less than 3.0%) plus 8.0%.
After the Effective Date, the non-default rate will be 10%.

With respect to Tranche B of the DIP Loans, the non-default rate
will be 10%.  With respect to the DIP Loans, (i) there will be no
LIBOR Rate or other optional pricing option; (ii) interest on all
loans will be payable monthly in arrears and on the Maturity Date
and will be computed for the actual number of days elapsed on the
basis of a year of 360 days; (iii) interest will be payable on or
before the last business day of each month commencing on
September 30, 2010; and (iv) in no event will the Interest Rate
exceed the highest lawful rate.

Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any default,
interest on all outstanding loans under the DIP Credit Agreement
will be payable on demand at 4.0% above the then-applicable rate.

The DIP lien is subject to a carveout for U.S. Trustee and Clerk
of Court fees; up to $75,000 in fees payable to professional
employed in the Debtors' case; and fees of the committee in
pursuing actions challenging the DIP Lenders' lien.

The Debtors are required to pay: (i) DIP facility fees, which are
2.5% of the amount of Tranche A payable at the closing of the
DIP Facility; and (ii) exit fees, about 2.5% of the amount of
Tranche A payable at final pay-down of the outstanding obligations
under the DIP facility.

The DIP financing terms mandate that if interim court order isn't
entered prior to September 13, 2010, the obligation of the DIP
Lender will terminate.  However, the hearing on the DIP financing
request has been reset to October 4, 2010, at 9:00 a.m.

                             Objection

Aquila Drilling Co., L.P. has objected to the financing, saying
that the financing proposal has a single purpose -- to facilitate
and achieve a swift acquisition of the Debtors' properties by an
indirect affiliate of CIT without affording the estate or its
creditors a fair and open marketing process of those properties
and to ensure that their potential value is preserved solely for
CIT.  According to Aquila, the financing proposed isn't the best
deal on the table.  Aquila said, "Aquila has extended to the
Debtors an offer to provide them a financing facility in an equal
amount under far more favorable terms and conditions than extended
by CIT.  Under Aquila's terms there is no rush to divest the
Debtors' of their assets; rather, the purpose and intention is to
afford the Debtors an opportunity to (i) provide necessary repairs
and maintenance to the oil and gas wells to bring efficiency to
them in order to cause the highest and best production possible,
and (ii) by achieving the best production possible, realize the
highest and best value for those properties through a proper sale
process involving a proper and complete marketing effort by a
credible, capable and experienced marketing firm."

                         Objection to Plan

Pathfinder Energy Services, LLC, and Smith International, Inc.,
have objected to the Debtors' Plan and Disclosure Statement,
saying that the Plan fails to disclose material information.  "The
Disclosure Statement and the Plan fail to provide for any payment
to unsecured creditors.  Yet the Plan provides for a sale of
substantially all of the Debtors' assets to the Buyers for no
consideration except to the Debtors' equity holders and secured
lender, CIT Capital," Pathfinder and Smith said.

HFG 231: EF-43 Asks Court to Dismiss Bankruptcy Case
----------------------------------------------------
EF-43 LLC has filed with the Eastern District of New York a motion
to dismiss HFG 231, LLC's Chapter 11 bankruptcy case.

The Debtor was party to a real property purchase agreement with
property owner EF-43.  Under this agreement, the Debtor was
afforded a diligence period, at the expiry of which the Debtor
could either terminate the agreement and get its full deposit back
or supplement its deposit (with its deposit becoming
nonrefundable) and consummate the acquisition within 30 days.

EF-43 said, "Instead of exercising its termination right to get
its full deposit back (or supplementing its deposit and proceeding
with the acquisition), the Debtor filed for bankruptcy one day
before the expiration of the diligence period.  The Debtor's
filing is obviously and admittedly an improper attempt by the
Debtor to use the automatic stay to gain more time in a last-ditch
effort to raise the necessary financing for the transaction."

According to EF-43, the Debtor didn't file for bankruptcy for any
legitimate reorganization purpose.  "The Debtor is under no
financial distress.  It is a shell company, with no business or
assets (other than its rights under the purchase agreement), with
no real creditors and with no employees.  The Chapter 11 filing
does not protect the rights of creditors (because the Debtor does
not have any genuine creditors) but instead is solely intended to
preserve an investment opportunity for the Debtor's shareholders,"
EF-43 stated.

A hearing on EF-43's request for the dismissal of the Debtor's
bankruptcy case will be held on October 15, 2010, at 12:00 noon.
Objections on EF-43's request must be filed by October 8, 2010, at
4:00 p.m.

EF-43 is represented by Kaye Scholer LLP.

debts at $1 million to $10 million.


HHI HOLDINGS: S&P Affirms Corporate Credit Rating at 'B+'
---------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its 'B+' corporate
credit rating on HHI Holdings LLC and its 'B+' and '4' recovery
rating on the company's term loan B, which is being increased by
$30 million to about $228 million.  The outlook is stable.

"The ratings on HHI reflect what S&P considers to be its weak
business risk profile and aggressive financial risk profile.
S&P's business risk assessment incorporates the multiple industry
risks facing automotive suppliers, including volatile demand, high
fixed costs, intense competition, and severe pricing pressures,"
said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Lawrence Orlowski.

S&P considers HHI's concentrated customer base to be another key
risk factor, since more than half of its backlog of future
revenues is tied directly or indirectly to General Motors Co.
(unrated).  GM is in the early stages, in S&P's view, of an
uncertain recovery from its 2009 restructuring.  Although GM's
production has recently increased amid a broader stabilization of
U.S. auto demand, S&P believes future production could remain
highly volatile.  In addition, the long-term direction of GM's
market share is unknown, and S&P believes any additional
significant market share losses by GM would adversely affect HHI.

S&P's financial risk profile assessment includes HHI's pending
recapitalization.  The capital structure will include an
additional $30 million of term loan debt to fund the proposed
dividend.  The senior secured term loan will rise to about
$228 million and the unrated $100 million asset-based revolving
credit facility will have about $13 million drawn to help fund the
dividend.  S&P estimates that debt to EBITDA, taking account of
the transaction and including S&P's adjustment to add the net
present value of operating leases to debt, will be about 3.4x at
the end of 2010.  EBITDA during 2010 will include a full year of
the FormTech unit, which was acquired in August 2009.  S&P expects
this ratio to remain below 3.5x, including its adjustments, over
the intermediate term for the current rating.

Despite the potential for moderating leverage over time, S&P
assumes HHI's financial policies will continue to be aggressive,
given the concentrated ownership and the possibility that the
company may pursue additional targeted acquisitions.  Under the
terms of the term loan, HHI has leeway to make acquisitions as
long as leverage, as defined by the credit agreement, remains
below 2.75x (not including S&P's adjustments to debt).

S&P could lower the rating if free operating cash flow generation
turns negative for consecutive quarters, or if debt to EBITDA,
including S&P's adjustments, exceeds 5x.  For example, S&P
estimates that debt to EBITDA could reach this threshold if HHI's
gross margins, excluding depreciation and amortization, fall by
500 basis points compared with 2009's level.  A steep slide in
GM's U.S. market share to 15% from the 20% level in 2009 could
also result in a sufficient decline in EBITDA and cash flow to
warrant a lower rating.  "S&P considers an upgrade highly unlikely
during the next year based on S&P's current weak business risk
assessment and HHI's concentrated ownership," Mr. Orlowski added.

INNKEEPERS USA: Preferred Shareholders Want Official Committee
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Ad Hoc Committee of Preferred Shareholders ask the Court to
direct the appointment of a statutory committee of preferred
shareholders pursuant to Section 1102(a)(2) of the Bankruptcy
Code.

Representing the Ad Hoc Committee, Martin J. Bienenstock, Esq., at
Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP, in New York, contends that the Preferred
Shareholders are not contractually or structurally subordinate to
all creditors of each of the Debtors.  Rather, he asserts, the
Preferred Shareholders are entitled to the value of each Debtor
having value, notwithstanding that other Debtors may be unable to
pay in full all their respective creditors.  Hence, he insists
that appointment of a statutory equity committee is necessary to
provide adequate representation of Preferred Shareholders in each
of the Debtors' Chapter 11 cases.

Mr. Bienenstock alleges that the record of the cases is a
testament to the need for a statutory committee to represent
preferred shareholders because the Debtors have used estate funds
to pay for the efforts of their executives, attorneys, and
financial advisors to wipe out Preferred Shareholders while
illegally favoring the common shareholder.  He adds that the
Debtors simultaneously opposed use of any estate assets to
represent Preferred Shareholders by urging the United States
Trustee not to appoint a preferred shareholders' committee.

The Ad Hoc Committee's timely application for the appointment of a
statutory preferred shareholders' committee will not delay these
cases because extensive plan negotiations and discussions among
competing stakeholders regarding plan formulation will likely
unfold over the next critical months, Mr. Bienenstock further
argues.  He points out the appointment of a statutory committee
will ensure Preferred Shareholders a seat at the negotiating table
to advance a consensual plan that meets all fiduciary obligations.

A hearing to consider the request will be held on September 30,
2010.  Objections are due on September 24.

                     U.S. Trustee Objects

Tracy Hope Davis, the United States Trustee for Region 2, contends
that the request should not be heard because the Ad Hoc Committee
has not complied with Rule 2019(a) of the Federal Rules of
Bankruptcy Procedure.

Ms. Davis explains that according to the Ad Hoc Committee's Rule
2019(a) verified statement, they held preferred shares purchased
both before and after the Petition Date.  However, she asserts,
the Committee members have not disclosed the exact dates upon
which they acquired their shares, including the dates and number
of shares purchased postpetition or the amounts paid, and any
sales or other disposition of those shares.

If the Court decides to hear the request, it should be denied
because the Ad Hoc Committee has not shown that the appointment of
an official equity committee is warranted, Ms. Davis asserts.
Specifically, she points out, the Ad Hoc Committee has failed to
meet its burden to establish that preferred shareholders are not
adequately represented or that there is a substantial likelihood
of a meaningful recovery to them.

INNKEEPERS USA: Wells Fargo Wants to File Competing Plan
--------------------------------------------------------
Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., and U.S. Bank National Association, both
known as the Property Level Lenders, jointly ask Judge Shelley
Chapman of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of New York to terminate the exclusive periods of certain
of the Debtors to permit the Property Level Lenders to file a plan
or plans of reorganization with respect to the Property Level
Debtors.

The Property Level Debtors are Grand Prix RIMV; KPA RIMV, LLC;
Grand Prix RIGG; KPA RIGG LLC; KPA Washington DC, LLC; KPA Tysons
Corner RI, LLC; and KPA San Antonio, LLC.

Wells Fargo is the Trustee for the registered holders of Credit
Suisse First Boston Mortgage Securities Corp. Commercial Mortgage
Pass-Through Certificates, Series 2007-C1, while U.S. Bank is the
successor to LaSalle Bank N.A., formerly known as LaSalle National
Bank, the Trustee for the registered holders of ML-CFC Commercial
Mortgage Trust 2006-4, Commercial Mortgage Pass-Through
Certificates, Series 2006-4.

Lawrence P. Gottesman, Esq., at Bryan Cave LLP, in New York,
argues that it is imperative that the Chapter 11 cases be opened
up to permit competing transactions to ensure that recoveries are
maximized for all creditors of each of the separate bankruptcy
estates, none of which have or can be substantively consolidated.

Mr. Gottesman contends that the Debtors' prepetition Plan Support
Agreement with Lehman ALI, Inc., and the cramdown plan of
reorganization contemplated in the PSA were negotiated with only
one minority secured creditor and with an out-of-the-money equity
holder of the Debtors.  He alleges that the Debtors (i) made
information and documents available only to Lehman ALI and
(ii) did not engage in any meaningful shopping of the proposed
transaction or negotiations with the vast majority of their
secured creditors or make any effort to ensure that one or more
bankruptcy estates and their creditors were not preferred over the
bankruptcy estates and creditors of other of the Debtors.

The Debtors' lack of due care and good faith and their abdication
of their fiduciary obligations owed to all of the Debtors and
their respective creditors demonstrates the need to terminate the
Debtors' exclusive periods to meaningfully open up the process,
Mr. Gottesman tells Judge Chapman.  "The termination of
exclusivity is necessary, bluntly stated, to keep the Debtors
honest," he asserts, among other things.

The Property Level Lenders also join in (i) Midland Loan Services,
Inc.'s motion to terminate the Debtors' exclusivity, and (ii)
Midland's request that the Court set a schedule for confirmation
of the Lehman/AIC Plan, a plan incorporating the proposal by Five
Mile Capital Partners for an alternative plan of reorganization,
and any other competing plan.

C-III Asset Management LLC and CWCapital Asset Management LLC join
in both Wells Fargo's and Midland's motions to end the Debtors'
exclusivity rights.

INOVA TECHNOLOGY: Earns $2.2 Million in July 31 Quarter
-------------------------------------------------------
Inova Technology Inc. filed its quarterly report on Form 10-Q,
reporting net income of $2.18 million on $7.87 million of revenue
for the three months ended July 31, 2010, compared with a net loss
$2.36 million on $4.93 million of revenue for the three months
ended July 31, 2009.

Net loss decreased from $2.36 million for the three months ending
July 31, 2009, to net income of $2.18 million for the same period
in 2010.  This is due to a change from a derivative loss of
$1.65 million during the three months ended July 31, 2009, to a
derivative gain of $2.34 million for the three months ended
July 31, 2010.

The Company's balance sheet at July 31, 2010, showed
$11.86 million in total assets, $16.72 million in total
liabilities, and a stockholders' deficit of $4.86 million.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on August 26, 2010,
MaloneBailey, LLP, in Houston, expressed substantial doubt about
the Company's ability to continue as a going concern, following
its results for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2010.  The
independent auditors noted that Inova incurred losses from
operations for fiscal 2010 and 2009 and has a working capital
deficit as of April 30, 2010.

The Company discloses in its latest 10-Q that it is in default on
the majority of its notes payable as of July 31, 2010.

JEFFERSON COUNTY: Ala. Cir. Ct. Appoints John Young as Receiver
---------------------------------------------------------------
Dow Jones Newswires' Kelly Nolan reports that Alabama Circuit
Court Judge Albert Johnson named John S. Young Jr. LLC as receiver
for the Jefferson County, Ala., sewer system, a move that comes as
the county is working to avoid what would be the largest municipal
bankruptcy in U.S. history.

Dow Jones reports that according to a court order Wednesday, John
Young, president and chief technology officer of American Water
Works Service Co., will serve as chief executive of the newly
formed Delaware limited liability corporation that will oversee
the sewer system.

"The Court is of the opinion that bankruptcy is not a feasible
alternative.  Jefferson County, in order to progress, must have
access to capital markets," Judge Johnson wrote, according to Dow
Jones.

Dow Jones relates that the court order puts an end to what has
been a two-year-long process for Bank of New York Mellon Corp.,
the trustee hired to collect bond payments and protect the
interests of bondholders.  When it sued Jefferson County in 2008,
BNY Mellon asked for a receiver for the sewer system, alleging the
county had mismanaged it while accumulating more than $515 million
in payment defaults.

Dow Jones reports Jefferson County attorney Joseph Mays, partner
at Bradley Arant Boult Cummings, said: "We are studying Judge
Johnson's order and will be prepared to advise the County
Commission about possible responses to it."

Mr. Young, 56, is president of a unit of American Water Works Co.,
which says it is the largest investor-owned U.S. water and
wastewater utility company.  He was identified last week by Dow
Jones Newswires as the leading candidate for the receiver
position.

Dow Jones relates Maureen Duffy, spokeswoman for American Water
Works Co., said that, while the matter didn't relate specifically
to the company, American Water was "extremely proud that one of
its long-term employees has been asked to help resolve a
community's wastewater challenges."

According to Dow Jones, Mr. Young will have the power to operate
and administer the sewer system, including the ability to raise
rates, as allowed by the bond indenture.

                      About Jefferson County

Jefferson County has its seat in Birmingham, Alabama.  It has a
population of 660,000.  It ended its 2006 fiscal year with a
$42.6 million general fund balance, according to Standard &
Poor's.

Jefferson County is trying to restructure $3.2 billion in sewer
debt.  A bankruptcy by Jefferson County stands to be the largest
municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history.  It could beat the record of
$1.7 billion set by Orange County, California in 1994.

                           *     *     *

In August 2010, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services withdrew its
underlying rating on Jefferson County, Ala.'s series 2001B general
obligation warrants.  S&P lowered the SPUR to 'D' from 'B' on
Sept. 24, 2008, due to the county's failure to make a principal
payment on the bank warrants due Sept. 15, 2008, in accordance
with the terms of the Standby Warrant Purchase Agreement.

The county and the banks entered into a forbearance agreement that
effectively delayed payments due under the SWPA.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Fed Planned to Wind Down Brokerage
---------------------------------------------------
A lawyer testified that the U.S. Federal Reserve planned to wind
down the company's brokerage unit during the 2008 financial
crisis, Bloomberg News reported.

Shari Leventhal, Esq., a lawyer for the Federal Reserve Bank of
New York, testified in Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc.'s lawsuit
against Barclays that the Fed provided a $45 billion loan to the
brokerage unit for an "orderly wind-down" after LBHI filed for
bankruptcy protection, the report said.

Ms. Leventhal, who was involved in the Lehman-Barclays deal, said
the Fed supported the sale because it was concerned about the
stability of the financial markets.  She said she continues to
believe that the Fed's support for the sale was well-founded,
according to the report.

The lawyer recounted that the initial plan of the Fed was to
facilitate a takeover of not just the brokerage business but all
of Lehman.  However, the idea of winding down the brokerage took
precedence after it became clear that neither Barclays nor any
other bidder would buy LBHI, Bloomberg News reported.

Ms. Leventhal said the Fed was "happy" when Barclays came back as
a bidder for the brokerage for public policy reasons.

Ms. Leventhal further said that LBHI was not pressured by the Fed
to file for bankruptcy after bidders receded but she admitted
that the Fed officials called the company to make sure its board
of directors understood the urgency of the situation.

With respect to the $4 billion accounting gain that Barclays
reported on the deal, the lawyer said it was not relevant to the
Fed, Bloomberg related.

"We assumed they entered into the deal expecting to do well,"
Bloomberg News quoted Ms. Leventhal as saying.  "They are a
business concern and we assumed they had done due diligence."

Ms. Leventhal disclosed that they required Barclays to take over
the Fed loan to Lehman before the deal closed and promised about
$49 billion of the company's collateral to back the loan.  She
stressed that the Fed wanted Barclays, rather than the Fed and
taxpayers, to risk lending to Lehman, and provided loan to the
British bank temporarily to help it complete the deal.

LBHI's lawyer, Robert Gaffey, tried to show at the hearing that
the Fed had no knowledge of whether Barclays was acting in good
faith when it acquired the brokerage.  He also tried to show the
Fed supported Barclays even though there could have been other
bidders, Bloomberg News reported.

             Examiner Says Lehman Board Should Have
                      Asked More Questions

An examiner who investigated into what caused the collapse of
LBHI said disaster could have been avoided if its board of
directors had asked more questions about accounting transactions
used as "window dressing" on its quarterly financial statements,
according to a September 15 report by Reuters.

Anton Valukas said the "Repo 105" transactions were "open and
notorious" within the company but its directors never asked the
executives about "window dressing" and its off-balance sheet
liabilities, Reuters reported.

A repo transaction is an artificial sale and buy-back deal that
enabled LBHI to hide billions of debts from regulators.

Mr. Valukas said there is no evidence Lehman personnel lied to
the directors only that basic questions about off-balance-sheet
transactions and other things were not being asked by the
directors, according to the report.

Mr. Valukas was appointed early last year after LBHI's creditors
called for transparency on the company's business affairs.  The
creditors complained over the lack of disclosure, particularly on
the flow of funds and property among LBHI and its affiliates days
before their bankruptcy filing.

Results of the investigation showed that LBHI used the repo
transactions and was able to hide $50 billion or GBP32 billion of
debts from regulators despite checks by its auditor.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Files Avoidance Suits to Recover $3 Billion
------------------------------------------------------------
Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. and its debtor affiliates,
including Lehman Brothers Special Financing Inc. and Lehman
Brothers Financial Products Inc., filed 54 lawsuits seeking to
recover funds they transferred to counterparties in more than 230
transactions entered into before they filed for bankruptcy on
September 15, 2008.

The lawsuits, according to Reuters, aim to recover more than
$3 billion.

By filing the Avoidance Actions, the Lehman Debtors, according to
papers filed with the Bankruptcy Court, seek to protect and
restore their property interest that has substantial economic
value to their estate.  These interests particularly refer to the
Debtors' contractual right to senior payment priority in
derivatives transaction.

The Avoidance Actions stem from provisions that govern
transaction documents with respect to certain derivatives
transactions, the application of which was conditioned on the
commencement of either LBHI or LBSF's bankruptcy case.  The
subject provisions operate to deprive them [the Debtors??] of
their property interest by (i) taking Senior Payment Priority
from them, (ii) replacing it with junior payment priority, and
(iii) transferring Senior Payment Priority to or for the benefit
of certain noteholders who otherwise would have only Junior
Payment Priority, which include certain circumstances that reduce
or eliminate the Debtors' right to payment altogether.

The Avoidance Actions were initiated against certain special-
purpose entities that issued series of notes pursuant to certain
transaction documents and banks that served as trustees in the
trust or indenture.  LBHI served as credit support provider or
guarantor under the indentures.

Shai Y. Waisman, Esq., at Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP, in New
York, relates that under the Agreements, the commencement of a
bankruptcy case by the Debtors constituted an Event of Default
and upon (i) the occurrence of an Event of Default under the
Agreements with respect to the Debtors, and (ii) triggering of
the Modification Provisions, Senior Payment Priority is
transferred from LBSF to or for the benefit of the Noteholders,
leaving LBSF with only Junior Payment Priority, or no payment,
for its claim.

In the Avoidance Actions, the Debtors specifically seek:

  (a) a declaratory judgment that the Payment Priority Exchanges
      improperly modified LBSF's Senior Payment Priority as a
      result of a bankruptcy filing, and, thus, the Modification
      Provisions constitute unenforceable ipso facto clauses
      that violate Sections 365(e)(1) and 541(c)(1) and LBSF is
      entitled to Senior Payment Priority; and

  (b) a declaratory judgment that any action to enforce the
      Payment Priority Exchanges as a result of a bankruptcy
      filing violates the automatic stay under Section 362(a).

In the alternative, the Debtors seek a judgment that the Payment
Priority Exchanges were preferential transfers avoidable pursuant
to Section 547, constructive fraudulent transfers avoidable
pursuant to Section 548, and unauthorized postpetition transfers
avoidable pursuant to Section 549; and that pursuant to Sections
550 and 551, LBSF is entitled to recover and preserve Senior
Payment Priority for the benefit of its estate.

Among the defendants named in the lawsuits are Bank of America
Corp (BAC.N), Bank of New York Mellon Corp (BK.N), Deutsche Bank
AG (DBKGn.DE) and US Bancorp (USB.N), Citibank, and Wells Fargo.
The banks, as trustees, held the collateral backing the deals.

A schedule of the Avoidance Actions is available for free
at http://bankrupt.com/misc/lehmapsept15.pdf

Mr. Waisman relates that the Debtors and the Official Committee
of Unsecured Creditors have been diligently investigating
thousands of transactions to determine whether any payments or
transfers of the Debtors' interests in property constitute
preferential, fraudulent and unauthorized transfers that may be
avoided under the Bankruptcy Code.  To prevent the loss of
avoidance causes of action prior to the expiration of the
applicable statute of limitations periods imposed by the
Bankruptcy Code, the Debtors commenced the avoidance actions.

"We plan to vigorously contest this matter," Citigroup
spokeswoman Danielle Romero-Apsilos told The Wall Street Journal.
Citibank acted as the trustee for notes issued by a CDO called
Pebble Creek.  Lehman's lawyers have previously said in court
filings that the investment bank is owed $68 million related to
termination of the swap.

Derivatives, according to the Journal, represent a significant
source of cash for Lehman creditors still waiting to get paid 24
months after the investment bank filed for bankruptcy protection
in September 2008.  At the time of its collapse, Lehman was a
party to or had guaranteed more than 10,000 derivative contracts
representing more than 1.7 million transactions, according to
court documents.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Freddie Mac Objects to Aurora Bank Settlement
--------------------------------------------------------------
Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation in Conservatorship --
Freddie Mac -- reserves its rights and objection regarding Lehman
Brothers Holdings' motion seeking approval of the settlement with
Aurora Bank.

Freddie Mac relates that it is the owner of many thousands of
mortgage loans that Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. services for
Freddie Mac under the terms and conditions of a certain mortgage
selling and servicing contract between Freddie Mac and LBHI.
LBHI has contracted with Aurora Loan Services, LLC, to subservice
the loans.  Freddie Mac has filed proofs of claim against LBHI,
arising from, among other things, loan servicing related
obligations.  Freddie Mac's potential exposure to LBHI for
servicing related obligations, including repurchase obligations,
as of June 30, 2009, is estimated to be approximately
$868.6 million.

According to Freddie Mac's counsel, Sophia Ree, Esq., at Landman
Corsi Ballaine & Ford P.C., in New York, Freddie Mac retains the
absolute right to approve and transfer of servicing.  Ms. Ree
says Freddie Mac individuals who would ultimately have to approve
any transfer have not been contacted with respect to the subject
matter of the motion.

Freddie Mac also objects to the portion of the settlement where
LBHI agrees to transfer and assign to ALS "all income
attributable to or derived from such excluded mortgage servicing
rights."  Freddie Mac, Ms. Ree says, believes that that
assignment could effectively accomplish an end-run around Freddie
Mac's approval rights -- by making ALS the servicer of the
Freddie Mac loans for purposes of receiving 100% of the income
earned under the loan servicing.

Clayton Services Inc. seeks a court ruling to ensure repayment
from Aurora Bank FSB of whatever amount remitted by the firm to
LBHI under a master services agreement.

The move came after Clayton received a demand letter from LBHI,
requiring the firm to remit a certain sum to settle the payment
of as much as $793,887, purportedly related to the agreement.

Aurora Bank entered into the agreement in 2008 to tap the
services of Clayton.  The bank was obligated under the deal to
pay for Clayton's services but it arranged for Lehman Brothers
Inc. or any affiliated debtor of LBHI, to make the actual
payments.

"Clayton believes that all such payments relate to the agreement,
and would, to the extent recovered by the Debtors, give rise to
an obligation on [Aurora Bank's] part to pay Clayton a sum equal
to any such recoveries ," says the firm's lawyer, Brian Harvey,
Esq., at Goodwin Procter LLP, in New York.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Proposes Stay of Avoidance Actions
---------------------------------------------------
Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc., in connection with their filing of
53 avoidance actions, ask Judge James Peck for an immediate stay
of those Actions and certain related relief potentially to avoid
the enormous costs and burdens to all parties and the Court
associated with prematurely pursuing active litigation in the
Avoidance Actions.

According to Shai Y. Waisman, Esq., at Weil, Gotshal & Manges
LLP, in New York, many of the Avoidance Actions involve highly
complex transactions and issues like those presented by the
action filed by Lehman Brothers Special Financing Inc. against
BNY Corp. in Adversary Proceeding No. 09-01242.  Others involve
more routine transfers that nonetheless require further fact-
intensive analysis.

If the Avoidance Actions are not stayed, the Debtors will be
forced to divert their resources from conducting further due
diligence and actively pursuing consensual resolutions of these
matters to responding to discovery demands; engaging in motion
practice; and preparing for contested proceedings and trials, Mr.
Waisman asserts.  "Not only will wide-scale litigation of the
Avoidance Actions drain the Debtors' resources, it would also
monopolize the Court's docket."

Mr. Waisman explains that the Avoidance Actions had to be
commenced to preserve significant causes of action and to fulfill
the Debtors' fiduciary duties to maximize value for creditors.
He says the Debtors and the Official Committee of Unsecured
Creditors recognize that litigation is not necessarily the most
efficient path to recover value for the Debtors' estates.

Temporarily staying these proceedings will allow the Debtors to
pursue consensual resolutions of claims -- whether by settlement
or dismissal as appropriate -- with minimized costs, Mr. Waisman
says.

The Debtors propose the implementation of these uniform
procedures to govern the stay of the Avoidance Actions:

  A. Stay of Avoidance Actions.  All Avoidance Actions will be
     immediately stayed so that (1) all applicable deadlines
     (other than those related to completion of service of
     process) will be indefinitely suspended, (2) all discovery
     and pre-trial conferences will not be required or
     conducted, and (3) all motion practice and contested
     hearings or trials will be prohibited.  During the stay,
     the Debtors may (1) amend the Avoidance Action complaints,
     (2) employ the Derivative Alternative Dispute Resolution
     Procedures or other procedures to attempt to consensually
     resolve their disputes, (3) enter into settlements of the
     Avoidance Actions, (4) complete service of the Avoidance
     Action complaints, (5) seek discovery for the purpose of
     assisting the Debtors in completing service of the
     Avoidance Action complaints, and (6) dismiss an Avoidance
     Action in accordance with Rule 7041 of the Federal Rules of
     Bankruptcy Procedure.  No Avoidance Action Defendant will
     be required to respond to, or otherwise answer, the
     Avoidance Action complaint while the Stay is in effect, and
     all rights of the Debtors and the Avoidance Action
     Defendants, including requests for dismissal of the
     Avoidance Action on any basis, will be fully preserved.

  B. Notice of Stay.  Upon the entry of an order granting the
     Stay Motion, the Debtors will file a "notice of stay" on
     the docket of each Avoidance Action to make clear that
     responses to the complaint are not required until the Stay
     is lifted.  For those Avoidance Actions that have not yet
     been commenced, the Debtors file will and serve the "notice
     of stay" once the Avoidance Action has been commenced.

  C. Extension of Time to Complete Service of Complaints.
     Pursuant to the discretion granted to the Court under Rule
     4(m) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, the Debtors
     will have until 180 days from the filing of the complaints
     to complete service in accordance with Bankruptcy Rule 7004
     without prejudice to the Debtors' ability to request
     further extensions.

  D. Lifting of the Stay.  The Stay over an Avoidance Action may
     be lifted by (i) the Debtors upon the filing and service of
     a notice on the applicable Avoidance Action Defendant(s)
     indicating the Debtors' intention to prosecute the
     Avoidance Action, or (ii) the Court for good cause shown
     upon an application by an Avoidance Action Defendant and
     after notice and a hearing with an opportunity to respond
     by the Debtors and the Creditors' Committee.  The date of
     the Debtors' notice of intention to prosecute or the
     Court's order modifying the Stay will govern the parties'
     responsive pleading or answer deadlines in the Avoidance
     Actions and reinstate all applicable Bankruptcy Rules,
     including rules governing discovery and motion practice.
     For example, Avoidance Action Defendants will be required
     to respond to the complaint within 30 days of the Debtors'
     notice of intention to prosecute an Avoidance Action.

The Debtors will not seek to enforce defaults or seek default
judgments against the Avoidance Action Defendants for failure to
respond to the complaint prior to the entry of an order with
respect to the Stay Motion, Mr. Waisman tells the Court.

LOGAN'S ROADHOUSE: S&P Assigns 'B-' Rating on $355 Mil. Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it assigned its 'B-'
issue-level rating, based Logan's Roadhouse Inc.'s proposed
$355 million second lien senior secured notes.  The recovery
rating is '3'', indicating S&P's expectation for meaningful (50%-
70%) recovery of principal in the event of default.

The proposed $30 million first lien revolver is unrated.  At the
same time, S&P affirmed all existing ratings, including its 'B-'
corporate credit rating on the company.  S&P's rating outlook is
stable.

"The rating action follows Logan's merger agreement to be acquired
by Kelso & Co. for $585 million, including fees and expenses,"
said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Mariola Borysiak The
transaction is being financed with a $30 million unfunded revolver
and $355 million senior secured second lien notes.  Kelso's and
Logan's managements will invest approximately $230 million.

Logan's pre-transaction capital structure included about
$102 million of preferred equity which S&P treated as debt in its
ratio calculation.  As such, Logan's pro forma debt balances,
assuming that all existing debt is repaid and preferred equity
redeemed, will only be marginally higher resulting in slightly
weaker credit metric.  Pro forma for the proposed transaction and
based on the preliminary results for the fiscal year ended Aug. 1,
2010, Logan's leverage will slightly increase to about 7.2x from
about 6.8x before the buyout.  EBITDA interest coverage is
expected to be about 1.5x, down from 1.6x before the transaction.

MATEH EFRAIM: Helen-May's $1,500 Per Diem Admin. Claim Nixed
------------------------------------------------------------
The trustee for the Chapter 7 bankruptcy estate of Kollel Mateh
Efraim, LLC, a/k/a Mateh Ephraim LLC, a/k/a Kollel Mateh Efraim,
agreed to allow an administrative claim in favor of Helen-May
Holdings, LLC, at the rate of $1,500 per day for the approximate
three years that the debtor occupied Helen-May's property.  The
settlement reserved to parties-in-interest the right to object to
the administrative claim.  The debtor's former attorneys,
Backenroth Frankel & Krinsky, LLP, and Jack Lefkowitz and Abraham
Steinwurzel -- defendants in the adversary proceeding entitled
Geltzer v. Lefkowitz, Adv. Pro. No. 08-1265 -- objected to the
allowance of an administrative claim, asserting that Helen-May's
damages for use and occupancy should be limited to (i) a 2007
judgment for $245,779 against the Debtor for failure to make
adequate protection payments, plus (ii) the $140,000 down payment
on the Contract that Helen-May had retained.

On September 21, 2010, Judge Stuart M. Bernstein sided with the
Fiduciary Defendants and held that Helen-May's administrative
claim under the settlement and in connection with the Fiduciary
Litigation will be fixed at zero.  Judge Bernstein said Helen-May
failed to carry is burden of proving the elements of its
administrative claim.

The Court's conclusion does not affect the prior judgment
resulting from the debtor's failure to make adequate protection

MAUI LAND: To Sell Kapalua Bay Course to TY Management for $24.1MM
------------------------------------------------------------------
Maui Land & Pineapple Company, Inc. announced Wednesday that it
has entered into a definitive agreement for the sale of The
Kapalua Bay Course and Maintenance Facility to TY Management
Corporation, a Hawaii corporation, for $24.1 million.  Under terms
of the sale, which is expected to close before the end of
September, the Company will enter into a lease to operate The Bay
Course until March 31, 2011.

"We are pleased to be able to continue our relationship with TY
Management to facilitate the sale of The Bay Course," stated
Warren H. Haruki, chairman and interim CEO of MLP.  "With this
transaction, we are able to consolidate the ownership of both
Kapalua golf courses with an esteemed partner.  We will continue
to operate The Bay Course in a manner that has led to Kapalua's
world-wide recognition as the number one golf resort in Hawaii.
We have an established relationship with TY Management
Corporation, which purchased The Plantation Course from MLP last
year, and look forward to a long term partnership at Kapalua for
many years."

The Bay Course is the forerunner of Kapalua Resort's two
championship golf courses.  The 6,600-yard, par 72 Bay Course was
designed by Arnold Palmer and Francis Duane and opened in 1975.

               About Maui Land & Pineapple Company

Maui Land & Pineapple Company, Inc.(NYSE: MLP) --
http://mauiland.com/-- is a landholding, real estate development
and asset management company headquartered in Maui, Hawaii.  The
Company owns approximately 24,000 acres of land on Maui, including
its principal development, the Kapalua Resort, a 1,650 acre
master-planned, destination resort community.

The Company's balance sheet as of June 30, 2010, showed
$119.4 million in total assets, $202.7 million in total
liabilities, and stockholders' deficit of $83.3 million.

                          *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on April 5, 2010,
Deloitte & Touche LLP, in Honolulu, Hawaii, expressed substantial
doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern
following the Company's 2009 results.  The independent auditors
noted of the Company's recurring losses and negative cash flows
from operations and deficiency in stockholders' equity at
December 31, 2009.


MF GLOBAL: Fitch Maintains Preferred Stock Rating at 'BB+'
----------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has maintained the ratings of MF Global Holdings
Ltd. on Rating Watch Negative where they were placed on March 23,
2010.

On May 20, 2010, MF's new management team announced a number of
near-term strategic initiatives to improve the company's financial
profile.  Since then, MF has taken steps to improve its expense
base through staff reduction, a better alignment of compensation
and performance, and a rationalization of some of its businesses.
The cost restructuring efforts are expected to yield savings of
$60 million-$75 million a year.  The company has also executed a
number of initiatives to enhance the quality and carry cost of its
capital structure.  Specifically, MF completed an equity offering
that raised $174.4 million in net proceeds in June.  Part of these
proceeds ($53.3 million) were used to complete an offer to
exchange common stock of the company plus cash for comparatively
high-cost convertible debt (9%) and non-cumulative preferred
shares (9.75%).  The exchange offer is expected to reduce interest
and dividend expense by approximately $11.2 million after-tax per
year.  Further, the company's funding and capital profile has
benefited from an amendment and extension of its revolving credit
facility at a relatively limited cost.

Profitability and revenue generation have been weaknesses over the
past several periods.  To address these deficiencies, the company
is looking to diversify and grow its revenue base through
incremental principal trading activities as well as the
introduction of select new products and services.  During the
first quarter of fiscal year 2011 (ended June 30, 2010), the
company was marginally profitable.  Looking ahead, MF will
continue to be challenged in its efforts to establish and sustain
revenue growth and profitability.  Going forward, Fitch looks to
management to provide a detailed plan to generate consistent
positive earnings.  In evaluating management's plan, Fitch will
also consider the potential impact of the charted course on the
firm's overall risk profile.

The resolution of the Rating Watch could take a number of paths.
The articulation of an achievable path to sustained profitability
could result in a ratings affirmation, albeit with a Negative
Rating Outlook as the company executes its plan.  Alternatively,
the ratings could be downgraded, potentially by multiple notches,
if in Fitch's view management's plan is not likely to be
achievable and/or entails a level of risk not commensurate with
the current ratings.

Fitch rates MF Global Holdings Ltd.:

  -- Long-term Issuer Default Rating 'BBB';
  -- Short-term IDR 'F2';
  -- Senior debt 'BBB';
  -- Preferred stock 'BB+';
  -- Rating Watch Negative.

MF Global Holdings Ltd. is a leading futures and options broker
with subsidiaries in major financial hubs.  Main subsidiaries are
registered futures commissions merchants and broker/dealers.  MF
Global is heavily regulated as a member of commodities, futures,
and securities exchanges in the U.S., Europe and the Asia-Pacific
region.


MOTOR COACH: KPS Capital Acquires Controlling Stake
---------------------------------------------------
KPS Capital Partners, LP, on Monday completed a controlling
investment, through an affiliate, in MCII Holdings, Inc., the
parent company of Motor Coach Industries International, Inc.  The

Jay Bernstein, a Partner of KPS, said, "MCI is universally

in the coach bus industry with a reputation for quality and
durability that is second to none. We are very excited to partner
with the Company's 1,500 employees in the U.S. and Canada to
manufacture products in North America for North American
customers, and to continue to provide MCI's customers with the
highest levels of quality and service. As a result of the KPS-
sponsored recapitalization, MCI is now conservatively capitalized
and has the financial resources to fund its continued growth and
investment in industry-leading innovation and technology."

KPS has considerable experience in the bus sector through its
former ownership of New Flyer Industries, Ltd., the leading
manufacturer of transit buses in North America.  Under KPS's
ownership, New Flyer experienced significant growth in revenue and
profitability, and became the industry leader in quality, delivery
and customer service.

Miller Buckfire & Co., LLC served as financial advisor and Paul,
Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton and Garrison LLP served as legal counsel

PARKVIEW CARE: Genser Dubow Fees Cut for Duplicative Work
---------------------------------------------------------
Genser, Dubow, Genser & Cona, LLP, made a final application for
compensation for their work as special counsel on behalf of
Parkview Care and Rehabilitation Center, Inc.  The Final
Application seeks $112,361.90 in fees and $4,112.61 in expenses.
The Final Application also seeks compensation of $2,118.62, which
represents fees that were held back from Genser's First Interim
Fee Application.

Both the Debtor and the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors
objected.  The Committee orally withdrew its objection at the
hearing.  The United States Trustee informed the Court that it had
no objections to the Final Application.

The Court finds that a de minimis reduction in the amount of fees
is appropriate in light of some instances of duplicative work, and
as such the Court will not award the amount held back from the
First Interim Fee Application in the sum of $2,118.62.

The Court grants Genser's Application, and Genser will be
compensated fees in the amount of $112,361.90, representing the
total amount sought in its Final Application.  Genser's requested
expenses in the amount of $4,112.61 are also approved.

RDS GROUP: Federal Judge Converts Case to Chapter 7 Liquidation
---------------------------------------------------------------
Tom Witosky at DesMoinesRegister.com reports that a federal
bankruptcy judge converted the Chapter 11 bankruptcy case of RDS
Group to Chapter 7 liquidation proceeding at the behest of the
Company's largest creditor Western Heritage Insurance Co.

Western Herigate, according to the report, asked that the Company
owner Randall Lee be found in contempt of court for failing to
comply with a court-ordered freezing of the account used to pay
Western Heritage its premiums.  RDS Group claimed assets of
$531,384 and liabilities of $544,623, but Western Heritage
officials contend that Lee has "played hide the ball" concerning
the location of the money owed, he adds.

DesMoinesRegister reports, citing papers filed with the court,
that Western Heritage lawyers discovered that Mr. Lee apparently
loaned himself $1.4 million from RDS funds one week after he had
been enjoined from taking money out of an account used to pay
customer premiums to Western and other companies.  Western
Heritage has claimed that it is owned $307,075 in premiums from
sales of insurance policies by RDS Group.

RDS Group, Inc., filed a Chapter 11 petition on August 31, 2010
(Bankr. S.D. Iowa Case No. 10-04405).  Donald F. Neiman, Attorney;
Jeffrey D. Goetz, Esq., at Bradshaw, Fowler, Proctor & Fairgrave,
P.C., serves as counsel to the Debtor.

ROCK US: Combined Hearing on Prepack Plan on November 9
-------------------------------------------------------
Rock US Holdings Inc., et al., have filed a Joint Prepackaged Plan
of Reorganization and disclosure statement with the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware.

Copies of the Plan and the Disclosure Statement are available for
free at:

           http://bankrupt.com/misc/ROCK_US_plan.pdf
           http://bankrupt.com/misc/ROCK_US_plan2.pdf
           http://bankrupt.com/misc/ROCK_US_ds.pdf
           http://bankrupt.com/misc/ROCK_US_ds2.pdf

The Court will consider the adequacy of the Disclosure Statement
and confirmation of the Plan during a hearing set for November 9,
2010, at 9:30 a.m. prevailing Eastern Time.  Objections to the
Disclosure Statement and the Plan must be filed with the Clerk of
the Court by October 18, 2010.

The Plan is intended to facilitate the sale of the Debtors'
properties.  The process in place is intended to maximize the
recoveries available for the benefit of the estates, and the Bank
of Scotland plc is agreeing to fund the costs of operation of the
properties, the payment of ordinary course obligations of the
properties and special capital improvements, and the costs of
confirming the Plan, out of its cash collateral and asset sale
proceeds.  Secured and priority liabilities are being funded as
part of the transactions contemplated by the Plan.  Given the
Debtors' current debt obligations and lack of adequate liquidity
to fund all of its operating needs, the Debtors have no choice but
to pursue the sale process in the manner described.

The transactions proposed under the Plan will (i) pay all allowed
administrative claims, priority tax claims, other secured claims
and other priority claims in full; (ii) facilitate the sale or
other disposition of the properties and other assets of the
Debtors; (iii) provided a mechanism for relieving the properties
of the encumbrances caused by the ROFR, ROFO, and Landmark
Designation Process; and (iv) allow the orderly wind down of the
operations of the Debtors.

The transactions will convey clean title to the Fifth Avenue
Property to its purchaser and the Madison Avenue Property to its
purchaser in exchange for, as applicable, cash consideration and
the assumption of mortgage debt and other liabilities, or
cancellation of debt if the senior lenders determine to take title
to the properties.  The Plan provides that, if the Madison Avenue
and the Fifth Avenue Purchase Agreements have terminated prior to
their respective closing dates, at the senior lenders' option, the
senior lenders may convey title to either or both of the
properties to the senior lenders in full satisfaction of their
Class 1 claims or designate one more entities, as applicable, as
purchasers of the properties.

                         Treatment of Claims

Under the Plan, the administrative claims will be paid in cash, in
full.   Each holder of a Priority Tax Claim will receive cash, in
full satisfaction of their claims.

SINCLAIR BROADCAST: Unit to Issue $250MM of Sr. Unsec. Notes
------------------------------------------------------------
Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc. said that its wholly-owned
subsidiary, Sinclair Television Group Inc., intends to offer,
subject to market conditions and other factors, approximately
$250.0 million aggregate principal amount of Senior Unsecured
Notes.  The Notes are expected to mature in 2018 and to be
guaranteed by Sinclair and certain of Sinclair's subsidiaries.

This private placement of Notes would be conditioned on customary
closing conditions.

The net proceeds from the private placement of Notes are intended
to be used, together with available cash on hand and revolving
debt, to repurchase all or a portion of Sinclair Television's
8.0% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2012 and the Company's 6%
Convertible Subordinated Debentures due 2012.  Any net proceeds
not used for the repurchases would be used for general corporate
purposes.

                     About Sinclair Broadcast

Based in Baltimore, Maryland, Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc.
(Nasdaq: SBGI) -- http://www.sbgi.net/-- one of the largest and
most diversified television broadcasting companies, currently owns
and operates, programs or provides sales services to 58 television
stations in 35 markets.  The Company's television group reaches
roughly 22% of U.S. television households and includes FOX,
ABC, CBS, NBC, MNT, and CW affiliates.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2010, showed $1.53 billion
in total assets, $1.71 billion in total liabilities, and a
stockholders' deficit of $170.36 million.

                           *     *     *

Sinclair Broadcast has a 'B1' corporate family rating from
Moody's.  It has a 'B+' corporate credit rating from Standard &
Poor's Ratings Services.

"The CFR continues to reflect still high financial risk,
nonetheless, and the inherent cyclicality of the broadcast
television business, among other factors," Moody's said in August
2010.

"The 'B+' rating reflects S&P's expectation that Sinclair will be
able to reduce its leverage further by the end of 2010 through

The Board of Directors of Sunesis Pharmaceuticals Inc. approved on
Sept. 16, 2010, the amendment and restatement of its Change of
Control Payment Plan providing for an extension of its term
through June 30, 2011.

                          2010 Bonus Program

The Company said, "On Sept. 16, 2010, the Board approved its 2010
Bonus Program.  The 2010 Bonus Program provides its executive
officers and other eligible employees the opportunity to earn cash
bonuses based on the level of achievement by us of certain
corporate objectives and by each participant of certain individual
performance objectives from June 30, 2010 through December 31,
2010.  A participant must remain an employee through the payment
date under the 2010 Bonus Program to be eligible to earn a cash
bonus."

"The Board approved the Corporate Objectives and assigned a
weighting to each objective.  The Compensation Committee of the
Board shall set the Individual Objectives of our chief executive
officer, as well as the Individual Objectives of the remaining
executive officers based on the recommendations of the chief
executive officer.  The Individual Objectives of non-executive
participants shall be set by each participant's immediate
supervisor.

"Each eligible participant in the 2010 Bonus Program may receive a
cash bonus in an amount up to a specified percentage of such
participant's annual base salary earned in 2010.  Under the 2010
Bonus Program, the Bonus Targets range from 25% to 50% of a
participant's 2010 base salary for Vice President level employees
and above.  The bonus target percentage for each of our named
executive officers is as follows:

Named Executive Officer            Bonus Target Percentage

Daniel N. Swisher, Jr.              50.0%
President and Chief
Executive Officer

Eric H. Bjerkholt                   37.5%
Senior Vice President,
Corporate Development and
Finance, Chief Financial
Officer and Corporate Secretary

Steven B. Ketchum, Ph.D.            37.5%
Senior Vice President, Research
and Development

The Compensation Committee will determine the degree to which the
Corporate Objectives have been met after receiving the analysis
and recommendations of management.  Based on such determination,
the Compensation Committee will adjust these Bonus Targets
accordingly.

The Compensation Committee said, "It will also determine the level
of achievement of the Individual Objectives by our chief executive
officer based on its evaluation of the chief executive officer's
achievements and by the remaining executive officers based on the
recommendations of the chief executive officer.

®There is no set formula for determining the amount of bonus
earned under the 2010 Bonus Program based on the achievement of
the Corporate and Individual Objectives.  Rather, the Compensation
Committee will exercise its discretion in determining the amount
of cash bonus actually earned.  Payment under the 2010 Bonus
Program is expected to occur in the first quarter of 2011."

                    Discretionary Cash Bonus

On September 16, 2010, the Board awarded Dr. Steven Ketchum, the
company's Senior Vice President, Research and Development, a

  (a) March 31, 2011,

  (b) the effective date of a plan of reorganization,

  (c) the day that is 30 days after the entry of an order
      terminating the automatic stay provided by Section 362 of
      the Bankruptcy Code with respect to the particular action
      sought to be removed, or

  (d) with respect to certain Postpetition Actions, the time
      periods set forth in Rule 9027(a)(3).

The Debtors further request that the order be without prejudice
to (a) any position the Debtors may take regarding whether
Section 362 of the Bankruptcy Code applies to stay any actions;
and (b) the Debtors' right to seek future extensions of time to
remove any and all actions.

Patrick J. Nash, Jr., Esq., at Kirkland & Ellis LLP, in New York,
relates that the Debtors are party to approximately 240 actions
pending in various state and federal courts and is represented by
many different law firms in these actions.  Moreover, additional
actions may be filed against the Debtors during the pendency of
their Chapter 11 cases, he says.  While Section 362(a) of the
Bankruptcy Code automatically stays many, if not all, of the
Actions pending against the Debtors, the Debtors are not yet
prepared to decide which, if any, Actions it will seek to remove,
Mr. Nash tells the Court.

The Debtors believe that the proposed time extension will provide
them with the necessary additional time to consider, and make
decisions concerning, the removal of any Actions.  Unless the
extension is granted, the Debtors believe they will not have
sufficient time to consider adequately whether removal of any of
the Actions is necessary.

The requested extension of the Removal Period will not prejudice
the rights of any party to the Actions, Mr. Nash avers.  Inasmuch
as Section 362(a) of the Bankruptcy Code automatically stays
actions against the Debtors, the Actions will not be proceeding
in their respective courts with respect to the Debtors even
absent the relief requested in the Motion, Mr. Nash avers.

The Court will consider the Motion on September 30, 2010, at
11:00 a.m. (Eastern Time).  Objections to the Motion are due on
September 27, 2010, at 4:00 p.m. (Eastern Time).

TUCSON ELECTRIC: Fitch Upgrades Issuer Default Rating to 'BB+'
--------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has upgraded Tucson Electric Power Company's long-
term Issuer Default Rating and individual security ratings as
indicated below.

  -- Long-term IDR to 'BB+' from 'BB';

  -- First mortgage bonds to 'BBB' from 'BBB-';

  -- Secured bank facility to 'BBB' from 'BBB-' ;

  -- Unsecured industrial revenue bonds to 'BBB-' from 'BB+';

  -- Unsecured pollution control revenue bonds to 'BBB-' from
     'BB+'.

Fitch has also affirmed TEP's short-term IDR at 'B'.  The Rating
Outlook is Stable.

Approximately $1 billion of debt securities are affected by the
rating action.  TEP is a wholly-owned subsidiary of UniSource
Energy.

Key rating drivers include:

  -- Continued management focus on debt reduction and regulatory
     process;

  -- Renegotiation of revolving credit and letter of credit
     facilities which are scheduled to mature in August 2011;

  -- High debt leverage (including capital lease obligations);

  -- More stable earnings and cash flows as the result of the
     final outcome in TEP's 2007 general rate case;

  -- Exposure to changes in environmental rules and regulations;
     and,

  -- Interest rate risk exposure on variable rate debt securities.

In the intermediate term, improvement in TEP's credit metrics
consistent with Fitch's expectations may result in positive future
rating actions.

The rating upgrade and Stable Outlook reflect sharp improvement in
TEP's credit metrics since 2008 primarily as the result of the
balanced final order in the utility's 2007 general rate case.
Issued by the Arizona Corporation Commission in November 2008,
the final order increased fuel and base rates approximately
$100 million on an annual run rate and authorized implementation
of a deferral and pass-through mechanism for 100% of TEP's fuel
and purchase power cost variation from amounts reflected in rates.
As a result, TEP's earnings and cash flows should be more
predictable at higher levels compared to pre-2007 GRC authorized
levels.  Higher base rates were effective Dec. 1, 2008, and the
purchase power and fuel adjustment clause Jan. 1, 2009.

The ratings also recognize TEP's competitive electric rates and
significant debt reduction in recent years.  Fitch expects TEP's
cash flow will be modestly positive through 2014 in part due to
capital expenditure reductions driven by sluggish economic
conditions in TEP's service territory economy.  TEP sales growth
is likely to slow to approximately 1% from its historic 2% to 3%
annual rate during 2011 - 2014 reflecting sluggish economic
conditions and energy efficiency initiatives in Arizona.  The
higher ratings also assume that TEP will be able to negotiate less
restrictive bank facility covenants in ongoing discussions to
replace its revolving credit and letters of credit facility.

TEP's LTM June 30, 2010 EBITDA and funds from operations plus
interest to interest expense were 4.4 times and 4.2x,
respectively, a significant improvement from 2008 levels of 2.4x
and 3.2x.  Fitch projects that TEP's EBITDA and FFO coverage
ratios ranges to range between 4.2x-5.4x and 3.4x-4.7x,
respectively during 2010-2014.  Leverage ratios are also expected
to show improvement over the same time period with FFO to debt
rising from an estimated 17% in 2010 to 20% in 2014.  Debt to
total capitalization is expected to decline from 68% at year-end
2009 to 61% in 2014.  Fitch includes capital lease obligations in
its debt leverage calculations.

In addition to strengthening credit metrics, TEP's credit quality
benefits from meaningful reductions to variable debt in 2009 and
2010 through a $50 million interest rate swap and the
restructuring of $130 million of debt from variable- to fixed-rate
mode, respectively.  Although beneficial in a low interest rate
environment Fitch considers a large component of variable rate
debt as part of a utility's permanent capital structure to be a
credit concern.  Fitch calculates that variable-rate debt as a
percentage of total debt has been reduced to approximately 20% at
the end of the second quarter 2010 from 30% at year-end 2009.
During 2008, average rates ranged from 0.55% to 8.09% and in 2009
0.25% to 0.79% for TEP's outstanding variable-rate debt.  Debt
leverage restrictions in TEP's bank agreements, which limit debt
to EBITDA as calculated under the terms of the agreement to 4.0x,
and frozen non fuel rates are a concerns for TEP investors, in
Fitch's opinion.

In 2008 TEP amended and restated its secured credit facilities
modifying the maximum allowable leverage ratio contained therein
from:

  -- 4.0x to 4.50x from July 1, 2008 through Sept. 30, 2008;
  -- 4.75x from Oct. 1, 2008 through Dec. 31, 2008;
  -- 4.50x from Jan. 1, 2009 through June 30, 2009; and
  -- 4.0x after June 30, 2009.

The amendment became necessary due to the effect of high net power
supply costs in the first half of 2008 combined with the absence
of a PPFAC, frozen rates and other operating factors.  As the
result of the implementation of the PPFAC and $50 million non fuel
base rate hike, Fitch expects TEP's post-GRC EBITDA to be more
stable at higher levels.

Debt maturities at TEP are manageable 2010-2014.  TEP's
$491 million bank facility is set to mature August 2011, while its
$30 million term loan is slated for maturity in September 2011.
In addition, $350 million of $439 million of TEP's long-term
capital lease obligations amortize by the end of 2014.  There are
no other scheduled debt maturities.  As of June 30, 2010, TEP had
cash and cash equivalents totaling $19 million and $105 million of
borrowing capacity available under its $150 million secured
revolving credit facility.

TEP's $491 million secured bank facility includes a $150 million
revolving credit facility used to meet day-to-day working capital
requirements and a $341 million secured letter-of-credit facility
that supports outstanding tax-exempt bonds.  In January 2010, TEP
terminated its $132 million secured letter of credit facility.
The credit facility backed TEP's $130 million of Pima County tax-
exempt industrial revenue bonds and was terminated and the IDBs
converted from secured variable to unsecured fixed rate mode with
a 5.75% coupon.

Fitch also factors the credit implications of TEP's status as a
subsidiary utility operating company within the UniSource Energy
corporate complex are also factored into the utility's credit
ratings.  Fitch notes that the amount of dividends TEP is
permitted to upstream to UNS is limited under the Federal Power
Act.  UNS owns the much smaller, UniSource Energy Services, Inc.,
an intermediate holding company which owns two Arizona-based
operating utility subsidiaries, UNS Gas, a wholly-owned natural
gas distribution company serving 146,000 customers and UNS
Electric, a wholly-owned electric distribution utility serving
90,000 customers.  UNS also owns UniSource Energy Development
Company and Millennium Energy Holdings, Inc.

UED developed and owns a natural gas-fired combustion turbine in
Northern Arizona that supplies energy to UES' electric utility
subsidiary.  Millennium has existing investment in unregulated
businesses that represent less than 1% of UNS' total assets as of
June 30, 2010.  There are no cross-defaults or guarantees between
TEP and its corporate parent or affiliate companies.  TEP is UNS'
core electric utility operation representing 79% of consolidated
UNS' 2009 operating revenue, 89% of EBITDA and 81% of total
assets.  TEP serves more than 400,000 electric customers in
Tucson, Arizona.


UAL CORP: APA Backs Contintental-United Pilot Stand on Outsourcing
------------------------------------------------------------------
The Allied Pilots Association (APA), certified collective
bargaining agent for the 11,500 pilots of American Airlines (NYSE:
AMR), expressed strong support for a proposal put forth by the
pilots of Continental Airlines and United Airlines to end
outsourcing of flying to regional partners.

"We commend the pilots of Continental and United for their efforts
to end the practice of outsourcing flying to regional airline
partners by mainline carriers," said APA President Captain David
Bates.  "It is our hope that executives at those two carriers will
see the wisdom behind this proposal and embrace it as part of a
successful merger."

Captain Jay Pierce, head of the Continental Airlines Master
Executive Council for the Air Line Pilots Association, was quoted
in recent news reports that he is confident a new pilots' deal can
be put together with Continental and United management by year-
end, in line with the airlines' merger schedule.  According to the
same news reports, Pierce also said he believes management
throughout the industry has become stuck in a mindset where they
feel they have to subcontract more flying -- a mindset that he and
his colleagues are now challenging at the bargaining table.

"United and other airlines must stop outsourcing to the lowest
subcontractor bidder, and instead avail themselves of the
experienced pilots who find themselves out on the street," said
Captain Wendy Morse, United Airlines Master Executive Council
Chairman.  "We cannot afford for airline management to place
dollars ahead of safety."

Captain Morse characterized outsourcing as "the ultimate bait and
switch" and emphasized that passengers "deserve to have United
Airlines pilots at the controls" when they buy a ticket from
United.

"The pilots of American Airlines are likewise well acquainted with
the widespread practice of outsourcing to regional carriers,"
Mr. Bates said.  "A considerable amount of flying that American
Airlines pilots once did is now performed by commuter affiliates.
We are also keenly interested in reversing this trend and will be
watching developments at Continental and United closely.

"The APA leadership believes an excellent case can be made
for the consolidation of all flying under the banner of well-
established mainline airline brands and we intend to pursue the
same approach in our own negotiations with American Airlines
management," Mr. Bates said.

Founded in 1963, the Allied Pilots Association -- the largest
independent pilot union in the U.S. -- is headquartered in Fort
Worth, Texas. APA represents the 11,500 pilots of American
Airlines, including 1,988 pilots on furlough.  The furloughs began
shortly after the September 11, 2001 attacks.  Also, several
hundred American Airlines pilots are on full-time military leave
of absence serving in the armed forces.  The union's Web site
address is www.alliedpilots.org.  American Airlines is the
nation's second-largest passenger carrier and fifth-largest cargo
carrier.

In August 2010, Moody's Investors Service affirmed its 'B2'
corporate family, with negative outlook, for Continental Airlines.
Moody's said the affirmation, among other things, signifies the
potential for it to maintain the B2 rating if the proposed merger
with UAL (B3 corporate family from Moody's, on review for upgrade)
is completed under terms that enable the combined entity to
achieve the potential revenue and cost synergies that have been
identified.  However, the outlook remains negative because of the
industry's weak track record in successfully executing large
business combinations.

Continental caries a 'B' corporate rating, on watch negative, from
Standard & Poor's.

ULTIMATE ESCAPE: Court Holds Off Approving Auction Rules
--------------------------------------------------------
Judge Brendan Shannon of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Wilmington,
Del. Shannon held off approving rules that would govern the
bankruptcy auction of Ultimate Escapes Holdings LLC, which has an
offer from its assets from secured lender CapitalSource Bank, Dow
Jones' DBR Small Cap reports.

The company was in court September 22, 2010, for its debut Chapter
11 hearing in front of Judge Shannon.

According to the report, Judge Shannon said the company's
unsecured creditors must be able to weigh in on how the auction
should be conducted, and the official committee has not yet been
formed.  The judge, however, granted interim approval on $2.3
million worth of bankruptcy financing from CapitalSource and noted
that the money is earmarked for holding Ultimate Escapes together
briefly while it tries to find a buyer, the report relates.

CapitalSource, which has agreed to serve as the lead bidder at an
auction for Ultimate Escapes, has offered to make as much as $3.6
million available to the distressed company, the report notes.

UNITRIN INC: Fitch Affirms 'BB+' Ratings on $560 Mil. Notes
-----------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed all ratings of Unitrin, Inc., and its
operating subsidiaries.  These ratings include the 'BBB-' Issuer
Default Rating for Unitrin, as well as its senior debt and Insurer
Financial Strength ratings.  The Rating Outlook is Negative.

Fitch's rating rationale includes Unitrin's modest operating
performance, which has improved in 2009 and through the first half
of 2010, its competitive business lines and solid operating
company capital quality.

The Negative Outlook reflects uncertainty in the run-off of
Unitrin's consumer finance business and potential changes within
the company's liquidity and balance sheet profile related to its
approaching November 2010 debt maturity of $200 million.

On March 24, 2009, Unitrin announced a plan to exit the auto
finance business (Fireside Bank), suspended all new lending
activity and ceased opening new certificates of deposit.  While
year-to-date 2010 operating performance and capitalization have
improved tremendously, Fitch believes there is still risk related
to the performance of Fireside Bank's loan portfolio, which is
expected to partially fund maturing CDs over the next several
years.  Somewhat mitigating this risk in the near term is the
bank's $260 million cash and investment balance.

In addition to a $245 million bank revolver that is in place
through October 2012, Unitrin has approximately $135 million in
holding company cash and an additional $70 million of dividend
capacity from its insurance subsidiaries, all of which can be used
to pay off the $200 million of November 2010 maturing debt.
However, if Unitrin were to use these resources instead of
refinancing with new, longer term financing, Fitch believes it
would materially reduce the company's overall financial
flexibility and holding company capitalization in the near term as
Fireside Bank continues to wind down.

Unitrin's ratings also reflect Fitch's expectation that pricing
softness in the property/casualty insurance marketplace will
persist.  Favorably, Unitrin's financial leverage and interest
coverage remain within Fitch's expectation at 21.4% and 8 times,
respectively, as of June 30, 2010.

On Dec. 31, 2009, Unitrin contributed 100% of its interest in
Reliable Life Insurance Co. and Union National Life Insurance Co.
to United Insurance Company of America for $20.8 million.  Fitch
expects Unitrin's life operations to be a steady contributor of
capital with limited growth potential, given its home service
market focus.

Key rating drivers include maintaining capitalization and
underwriting results consistent with recent levels.  In addition,
Fireside Bank is anticipated to be self-funding and not weaken the
balance sheet of the parent company.  Any shortfalls in these
items could lead to a downgrade.

Fitch could consider a revision in Unitrin's Outlook to Stable if
its holding company profile improved such that maturing debt is
successfully refinanced, along with continued improvement in
Fireside Bank's liquidity profile.

The current notching between the insurance operating companies and
the holding company senior notes is one notch wider than most
insurance organizations due to Fitch's view that the run-off
finance business presents additional risks to the overall Unitrin
operation.

Fitch has affirmed these ratings, with a Negative Outlook:

Unitrin

  -- IDR at 'BBB-';
  -- $560 million senior notes at 'BB+'.

Trinity Universal Insurance Co.
United Insurance Co.  of America
Union National Life Insurance Co.
Reliable Life Insurance Co.

  -- IFS rating at 'A-'.


VALEANT PHARMACEUTICALS: S&P Shifts Rating on $1.2BB Notes to BB-
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it revised its preliminary
issue-level and preliminary recovery ratings on Valeant
Pharmaceuticals International's $1.2 billion of senior unsecured
notes.  The $1.2 billion of senior unsecured notes were divided
into two tranches: a $700 million 7% tranche due 2020 and a
$500 million 6.75% tranche due 2017.  S&P revised the preliminary
issue-level ratings to 'BB-' from 'B+' and revised the preliminary
recovery ratings to '4' from '5'.  These changes follow changes in
the terms, specifically the increase of term loan A to $1 billion
from $750 million.

The 'BB-' corporate credit rating on Valeant remains unchanged.

VERTELLUS SPECIALTIES: S&P Assigns 'B' Corporate Credit Rating
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it assigned a 'B'
preliminary corporate credit rating to Indianapolis, Ind.-based
Vertellus Specialties Inc. The outlook is stable.

S&P assigned a 'BB-' preliminary issue-level rating and '1'
preliminary recovery rating to the proposed new $85 million asset-
based lending facility.  The '1' recovery rating reflects S&P's
expectation for very high (90%-100%) recovery for ABL lenders in
the event of a payment default.

S&P also assigned a 'B' preliminary issue-level rating and '4'
preliminary recovery rating to the proposed $325 million senior
secured notes.  The '4' recovery rating reflects S&P's expectation
for average (30%-50%) recovery for senior noteholders in the event
of a payment default.

The proposed $325 million in new senior secured notes and
$24.4 million to be drawn on the proposed new ABL facility at
close, will be used to refinance $214 million in existing first-
lien and $125 million in existing second-lien debt outstanding
(includes accrued interest and prepayment penalty fees).

"The ratings on Vertellus reflect a weak business risk profile
including a narrow scope of products, and a highly leveraged
financial profile," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Henry
Fukuchi.


VICTOR VALLEY: Potential Buyer, Union Object to Auction Rules
-------------------------------------------------------------
Dow Jones' DBR Small Cap reports that a potential bidder an a

The Debtor was initially required to file the schedules by
September 27, 2010.  The Debtor said that it has a small
administrative office staff.  Due to the demands on the Debtor
created by (i) filing this Case and the financial difficulties
giving rise thereto, (ii) the need to maintain continuity in the
Debtor's business, (iii) the need to prepare and file several
first day motions, and (iv) the immediate need to comply with the
filing requirements as set forth in the "Guidelines for
Fulfilling the Requirements of the United States Trustee," the
Debtor said that it wouldn't be able to complete the schedules
within the 14-day statutory period.  The Debtor requested for an

VISTEON CORP: 2 Equity Holders Fail Bid to Stay Plan Confirmation
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Mark Taub and Andrew Shirley, holders of certain equity interests
in Visteon Corporation, took an appeal to the U.S. District Court
for the District of Delaware from Judge Christopher Sontchi's
order confirming the Fifth Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization of
Visteon Corp. and its debtor affiliates.

             Appellants Seek Stay Pending Appeal,
       Wilmington Insists on More Time to Review Request

In a related filing, the Appellants asked the Bankruptcy Court to
stay the implementation of the Confirmation Order pending the
resolution of their Appeal.

Counsel to the Appellants, Edward Neiger, Esq., at Neiger LLP, in
New York -- eneiger@neigerllp.com -- asserted that the Plan
cannot be confirmed because it provides for better treatment on
account of certain interests than it does other interests of the
same class.  The Plan treats interests of members of class J who
are members of the Ad Hoc Committee of Equity Holders better than
the interests of Class J members who are not part of the Ad Hoc
Equity Committee, he pointed out.

Mr. Neiger further cited that under the guise of the Third
Amended Equity Commitment Agreement between the Debtors, certain
of the Debtors' unsecured noteholders, and the Ad Hoc Equity
Committee, the Plan provides:

  (a) Ad Hoc Equity Committee members a right to purchase
      144,456 shares in the Debtors' reorganized equity on
      account of their interests; and

  (b) that the Debtors will provide up to $4.25 million to the
      Ad Hoc Equity Committee on account of its professionals'
      fees.

In stark contrast, Mr. Neiger specified, the Debtors do not
provide any similar rights to Ordinary Shareholders on account of
those shareholders' interests under the Plan nor do they agree to
pay the Ordinary Shareholders' professionals' fees --
notwithstanding that the Ad Hoc Equity Committee members and the
Ordinary Shareholders are members of the same voting class of
Class J.

Mr. Neiger argued that this opportunity to participate in the
Rights Offering provides the members of the Ad Hoc Equity
Committee with disproportionate value on account of their
interests when compared to the measly (i) 2.0% of Distributable
Equity, and (ii) the Old Equity Warrants given to Ordinary
Shareholders on account of their interests.  Indeed, he added,
the Rights Offering is so valuable that bondholders were paying
103% of claim value just for the right to purchase this same
equity -- an equity that already trades in the "when issued"
market at a more than 80% return to its Plan value.

"[T]he primary beneficiaries of this orchestrated Plan
confirmation process are members of the Debtors' management who
stand to reap a windfall from a management equity incentive plan
. . . that is being instituted as part of the Plan," Mr. Neiger
said.

The Appellants averred that they have a strong likelihood of
success on the merits of their Appeal but that absent a stay,
will be irreparably harmed.  On the contrary, the Appellants
maintained, issuance of a stay will not substantially injure
other parties-in-interest.

The Appellants also asked the Bankruptcy Court to shorten the
notice and expedite the hearing with respect to their Stay
Motion.  They insisted that if the Plan becomes effective and is
implemented, they would be left with recovery on account of their
interest that is much lesser than their true value.

For its part, Wilmington Trust FSB, as administrative agent under
the Debtors' senior secured term loan facility, on behalf of
itself and several lenders of the prepetition term loan,
contended that all parties should be given an appropriate amount
of time to review the issues presented in the Appellants' Stay
Motion and to prepare a response.  "The stakes are obviously high
as the Stay Motion seeks to block a fully consensual
reorganization involving billions of dollars in creditor claims
and more than a billion dollars of fresh capital," Wilmington
Trust said.  Wilmington Trust thus opposed the request for an
expedited hearing on the Stay Motion.

                           *     *     *

Judge Sontchi denied the Appellants' request for the imposition
of a stay on the Confirmation Order pending a consideration of
the Appeal.  In connection with the Court's ruling, the expedited
hearing request is denied as moot.

          Parties Want U.S. Trustee to Appeal Confirmation

In separate letters dated September 8 to 15, 2010, Heasley St. J.
Rook, Dexter Yuen, Kathleen Crowle and Joseph Guarneri, all
shareholders of the Debtors, asked Roberta A. DeAngelis, the U.S.
Trustee for the District of Delaware, to file an appeal of the
order confirming the Debtors' Fifth Amended Plan of
Reorganization.

The Shareholders contend that that the confirmation outcome is
not worthy of the judicial system and should be contested.

Bankruptcy Professionals' quarterly fee applications, the Fee
Review Committee of the Debtors' estates submitted to the Court a
statement on its review of the Professionals' Fourth Interim Fee
Applications.  The Fee Review Committee noted under its statement
that:

  -- It has agreed with Kirkland & Ellis LLP to a fee reduction
     of $10,227 and an expense reduction of $3,260.

  -- It has agreed with Ernst & Young LLP to an expense
     reduction of $1,400.  The large majority of requested
     reductions were addressed through a voluntary expense
     reduction taken by Ernst & Young LLP in its Third Interim
     Fee Application.

  -- It has agreed with Alvarez & Marsal, LLC to an expense
     reduction of $10,598.

  -- It has agreed with Brown Rudnick LLP to a fee reduction
     of $7,980.

  -- It has noted certain issues regarding Ashby & Geddes P.A.'s
     time reporting and requested that the issued be remedied in
     future fee applications.

The Fee Review Committee also stated that Deloitte Tax LLP has
not yet responded to its request.

The FRC noted no issues with these professionals' fee
applications:

  * Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP (Delaware counsel);
  * Dickinson Wright PLLC (special counsel);
  * Rothschild, Inc. (investment banker);
  * PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (independent auditors);
  * FTI Consulting, Inc. (financial advisor); and
  * Chanin Capital Partners, LLC (restructuring and financial
    advisor).

VISTEON CORP: Retirees Want Committee Rejection Reconsidered
------------------------------------------------------------
Robert Dudon, Michael Jarema, III, Miriam Rosario, William
Shillingford, Julio Soto, Dean Turner, Ronald Young and Thomas
Zurek ask Judge Christopher Sontchi to reconsider his order
denying their motion for the appointment of a retiree committee.

As previously reported, the Bankruptcy Court ordered the Debtors
to restore all previously terminated retiree benefits, including
those benefits for Salaried Retirees.  It, however, denied the
Salaried Retirees' request for the appointment of a Retiree
Committee finding that the Debtors' assurance that they were
restoring all benefits eliminated the need of a retiree
committee.

The Debtors subsequently appealed the Bankruptcy Court's order
restoring retiree benefits for the Salaried Retirees and the
retirees represented by the International Union, United
Automobile, Aerospace and Agricultural Implement Workers of
America.

"Accordingly, at this point in time there can be no doubt that
the Debtors are seeking to modify or eliminate retiree benefits
for the Salaried Retirees," Richard A. Barkasy, Esq., at Schnader
Harrison Segal & Lewis LLP, in Wilmington, Delaware, counsel to
the Salaried Retirees, says.

Mr. Barkasy contends that without the appointment of a retiree
committee, the Salaried Retirees cannot file any pleadings before
the Bankruptcy Court or with respect to the Appeal on behalf of
the thousands of other affected non-union retirees.

Moreover, in the absence of a retiree committee to represent the
non-union retirees on appeal, the Debtors have no statutorily
recognized group of retirees to even negotiate with, Mr. Barkasy
maintains.

In a separate filing, the Salaried Retirees asked Judge Sontchi
to shorten the notice on their Reconsideration Motion so that it
can be heard on September 16, 2010.  Judge Sontchi, however,
denied expedited hearing request and held that the Salaried
Retirees have not established sufficient cause to justify the
relief requested.

A hearing on the Reconsideration Motion will be held on
October 18, 2010.  Objections from parties-in-interest are due no
later than October 1.

WASHINGTON MUTUAL: Examiner's Final Report to Be Filed Nov. 1
-------------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Mary Walrath entered a formal order extending the
deadline of Joshua R. Hochberg, the examiner appointed in
Washington Mutual Inc.'s cases, to submit his final report through
November 1, 2010.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 10, 2010,
Joshua R. Hochberg, the examiner appointed in the Chapter 11 cases
of Washington Mutual, Inc. and WMI Investment Corp. delivered a
preliminary report of his investigation to the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware.

The Preliminary Report summarized the progress made by teams
formed by the Examiner:

   (A) JPMorgan Team -- The team is examining claims against, and
       issues pertaining to, JPMorgan and certain third-party
       claims.  Among other things, the JPMorgan Team is
       investigating whether JPMorgan (1) intentionally injured
       WaMu in connection with the sale of WaMu to JPMorgan for
       $1.9 billion; and (2) improperly interfered with the sale
       of WaMu or Washington Mutual Bank to others.  Based on
       the JPMorgan Team's review of discovery materials, work
       product, briefs filed with the courts and other
       materials, the team has identified several areas of
       inquiry.

   (B) Asset and Avoidance Team -- The team is investigating the
       disputed claims of ownership of certain "deposit
       accounts," including the approximately $4 billion in
       funds held in deposit accounts at Washington Mutual Bank
       fsb.  The team is also evaluating whether the Debtors may
       assert avoidance claims for transfers made to Washington
       Mutual Bank and possible avoidance claims the FDIC
       Receiver may have against the Debtors.

   (C) FDIC Team -- The team is evaluating potential claims that
       the Debtors' estates may have against the FDIC and which
       would be released upon Plan confirmation.  The team is
       considering the substantial procedural and legal defenses
       asserted by the FDIC to all potential claims.

       Moreover, among the allegations investigated is that of
       the FDIC breaching its statutory or fiduciary duties as
       receiver by selling WaMu Bank for less than possible.

   (D) Tax Team -- The team is investigating and analyzing three
       issues: (1) the likelihood that the Net Tax Refunds
       identified in the Settlement will be received from the
       various tax authorities and the anticipated timing of the
       receipt of the refunds; (2) the competing claims to the
       ownership of certain tax refunds as advanced in various
       litigation and other forums; and (3) whether the Plan
       maximizes the tax assets available to the Debtors.  The
       Examiner is devoting significant resources to those tax
       issues.

   (E) Trust Preferred Securities Team -- The team is examining
       issues related to certain securities that were issued by
       an indirect subsidiary of Washington Mutual Bank in 2006
       and 2007, resulting in WaMu Bank raising several billions
       in dollars in capital.  The TPS team is locating or
       obtaining additional documents relevant to the TPS
       issues.

The Examiner said he needs the additional time to (i) obtain
additional documents, (ii) interview witnesses, and (iii) analyze
and evaluate all the information to complete the Final Report.
The Examiner added that witnesses are scheduled to be interviewed
through September 17, 2010, and more interviews are being
arranged.

WASHINGTON MUTUAL: Wilmington Trust Claims Settlement Approved
--------------------------------------------------------------
Washington Mutual Inc. obtained approval of a settlement of the
claims of Wilmington Trust Company aggregating $43 million.

No objections were filed to the Debtors' motion for approval of
the Settlement.

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

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

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

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

The Claims are:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

WASHINGTON MUTUAL: Wins Approval of IRS Settlements
---------------------------------------------------
Washington Mutual, Inc., won approval from the Bankruptcy Court of
settlements with the U.S. Internal Service.

WaMu is the common parent of an affiliated group of corporations,
including Washington Mutual Bank and its direct and indirect
subsidiaries that join in filing consolidated U.S. federal income
tax returns.  As the common parent of the WaMu Group, WaMu has
authority to settle audits and disputes with the U.S. Internal
Revenue Service on its own behalf and on behalf of all members of
the consolidated return group, including WMB and its predecessor
companies, for certain tax years.

WaMu is also the successor to H.F. Ahmanson & Company, by virtue
of a merger of Ahmanson with and into WaMu on October 1, 1998.
Prior to the transaction, Ahmanson was the common parent of an
affiliated group of corporations that filed consolidated U.S.
federal income tax returns for tax periods prior to October 1,
1998.  WaMu, as successor to Ahmanson, has represented the
Ahmanson Group in the IRS audits of the Ahmanson Group's tax
returns, including the resolution of certain refund claims at the
Office of Appeals of the IRS.

WaMu relates that since the Petition Date, it has worked with the
IRS to resolve -- subject to approval by the Bankruptcy Court and
by the U.S. Congress Joint Committee on Taxation -- all
outstanding issues with the IRS regarding the consolidated tax
liability of the WaMu Group for the 2001 through 2008 tax years,
except for certain adjustments for which the WaMu Group may be
entitled to claim a tax refund pending the outcome of certain
lawsuits initiated by WaMu on behalf of the Ahmanson Group.

WaMu adds that it has also reached a settlement with the IRS on a
tax refund claim of the Ahmanson Group with respect to the 1997
Tax Year.

Pursuant to Rule 9019 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy
Procedure, the Debtors and IRS, among other entities, entered
into separate settlements to allow the WaMu Group to recover most
of the claimed federal tax refund amounts, and resolve many
contentious federal income tax issues on reasonable terms and
with finality and certainty, thus eliminating the significant
cost, delay and uncertainty of litigation, Mark D. Collins, Esq.,
at Richards, Layton & Finger, P.A., in Wilmington, Delaware,
reveals.

According to Mr. Collins, the IRS Settlements are essentially
reflected in these documents:

  (i) An Appeals Settlement Agreement on IRS Form 870-AD, for
      Tax Years 2001-2003 of the WaMu Group, or the "2001-2003
      Appeals Settlement;"

(ii) An IRS Form 870, Waiver of Restrictions on Assessment and
      Collection of Deficiency in Tax and Acceptance of
      Overassessment, for Tax Years 2003-2008, on Form 870 and
      the corresponding Revenue Agent's Report or IRS Form 4549,
      also known as "RAR;"

(iii) A Closing Agreement with respect to foreign tax credits
      and related issues for Tax Years 2005-2007, or the
      "Closing Agreement;" and

(iv) An Appeals Settlement Agreement on IRS Form 870-AD) for
      tax year 1997 of the Ahmanson Group, or the "Ahmanson
      Appeals Settlement."

                    Terms of IRS Settlements

The 2001-2003 Appeals Settlement documents the resolution in
November 2009, of remaining tax issues in dispute for the 2001-
2003 Audit Cycle after discussions and negotiations among WaMu,
the Examination Division of the IRS, and the Office of Appeals of
the IRS.  The 2001-03 Appeals Settlement, which has been reviewed
and accepted by the Joint Taxation Committee, is subject to
approval by the Bankruptcy Court.

Because the IRS Exam Division had accounted for all the disputed
adjustments that are subject of the 2001-2003 Appeals Settlement
by reducing the February 2008 refund, the Settlement will yield
an additional net tax refund for the WaMu Group, Mr. Collins
avers.  In addition, several additional adjustments favorable to
the WaMu Group also were made as corollary changes in the 2001-
2003 Audit Cycle and included as part of the 2001-2003 Appeals
Settlement, he cites.

Specifically, the total net refund from the 2001-2003 Appeals
Settlement is approximately $447.2 million plus additional
overpayment interest to be determined when the tax amounts are
paid.  WaMu estimates that overpayment interest due on the
refund, if accrued through December 31, 2010, would be
approximately $124 million.

The RAR Settlement documents the reached complete resolution and
settlement between WaMu and the IRS Exam Division of all
outstanding audit issues for the 2004-2008 Tax Years and WaMu's
filed refund claims for tax years 2003-2008 based on its election
to carry back the 2008 consolidated net operating loss or "the
2008 NOL Refund Claims."

The WaMu Group will be entitled to receive a net federal tax
refund of approximately $4.533 billion for the 2003-2008 tax
years under the RAR Settlement, Mr. Collins notes.

The $4.533 billion Refund Amount "represents a recovery of almost
all the federal taxes paid in tax years 2004-2007 plus
approximately fifty percent (50%) of taxes paid in 2003, and also
includes recovery of approximately $9.9 million, representing an
erroneously computed penalty for 2004," according to Mr. Collins.
The amount of overpayment interest due on this projected refund,
if accrued through December 31, 2010, is estimated to be
approximately $100.7 million, he points out.

The Ahmanson Appeals Settlement resolves the tax deficiency of
$12.2 million and a corresponding penalty of $4.9 million filed
by the IRS Exam Division against the Ahmanson Group.  The
$4.9 million Penalty would have affected WaMu, as successor to
Ahmanson.

The Ahmanson Appeals Settlement was reviewed by the Joint
Taxation Committee and approved in April 2010.  Under the terms
of the Settlement, the Ahmanson Group will be allowed a capital
loss of $6.3 million and a deduction of $27,000 for costs
associated with the transaction.  This results in a tax refund of
approximately $2.2 million.

In addition, the penalties assessed on the Ahmanson Appeals
Transaction will be reduced from $4.9 million to $1.5 million
resulting in a refund of approximately $3.4 million in previously
paid penalties.  In total, WaMu, as successor to Ahmanson, will
be entitled to an aggregate refund of approximately $5.6 million
plus a refund of previously paid underpayment interest and
applicable overpayment interest from the 2006 payment date.

WaMu estimates that the interest to be received on the refund
related to the Ahmanson Appeals Settlement, if accrued through
December 31, 2010, will be approximately $6.3 million.

Mr. Collins emphasizes that the IRS Settlement will significantly
reduce the extent of outstanding tax claims against WaMu's
estate, thus increasing the amount of the tax refund to be
received on account of the 2008 NOL Refund Claims.  Moreover, he
avers, the proposed settlement will relieve WaMu from having to
commit substantial resources to protracted litigation.

Nothing contained in the Settlement Documents prejudices the
rights of JPMorgan Chase N.A. or the Federal Deposit Insurance
Corporation under the Global Settlement Agreement under the
Debtors' Chapter 11 Plan of Reorganization, as amended.
Accordingly, neither JPMorgan Chase nor the FDIC has raised any
objection or exception to the terms contained in the IRS
Settlement Documents.

The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors Committee has had
an opportunity to review, and supports the terms of, all
Settlement Documents, Mr. Collins tells Judge Walrath.

WASTEQUIP INC: S&P Raises Corporate Credit Rating to 'CCC'
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its CCR on Wastequip
Inc. to 'CCC' from 'SD'.  At the same time, S&P lowered the issue-
level rating on the company's senior secured debt at 'CCC' from
'CCC+' (the same as the CCR).  The recovery rating on this debt
remains unchanged at '3', indicating S&P's expectation of
meaningful (50%-70%) recovery in the event of a payment default.
The outlook is negative.

"The upgrade reflects S&P's assessment of Wastequip's weak
business risk profile and highly leveraged financial profile
following the company's recent exercise of its PIK-toggle option
under its mezzanine loan agreement," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Gregoire Buet.  "The company's financial profile is highly
leveraged, with adjusted total debt to EBITDA currently in excess
of 15x, and S&P view its liquidity position as weak, marked by
volatile free cash flow generation, reduced revolver availability,
as well as by tight financial covenants.  Through 2010, S&P
believes that the equity cure provision and PIK-toggle provision
could enable Wastequip to meet the financial covenant requirements
under its senior credit facilities.  A subsequent election of the
PIK-toggle option under the mezzanine loan, if any, would not
cause a downgrade of the rating to selective default ('SD').
However, S&P believes that the company will need to significantly
improve its profitability and cash flow generation in a sustained
manner to be able to meet, over the longer term, its financial
obligations under its current capital structure.  Considering
current and prospective leverage, S&P remain concerned about
refinancing risks with respects to the revolving credit facility
maturing in February 2012, when interest on its holding company's
subordinated debt also becomes payable in cash."

Wastequip's weak business risk profile primarily reflects its
limited diversity and participation in a relatively small niche
market.  Due to the challenging conditions in the U.S. housing and
nonresidential construction market, demand from national and
regional waste haulers has declined, resulting in lower revenues
and weak earnings for suppliers such as Wastequip.  The company's
operating margin has deteriorated meaningfully since its peak
level of about 14% in 2006, but has recently stabilized in the
upper-single-digit area due to its cost-cutting initiatives.

Wastequip is highly leveraged.  As of Dec. 31, 2009, lease-
adjusted debt to EBITDA was more than 15x, and funds from
operations (FFO) to total debt was minimal.  The calculations for
both ratios include the 13.5% senior unsecured PIK notes at the
holding company.  Operating conditions have remained challenging
in the first half of 2010.  While higher volumes, operating
efficiencies and lower margin pressure from raw material prices
could lead to profitability improvements in the second half of the
year, S&P believes credit measures and liquidity will remain under
pressure.

The outlook is negative.  S&P could lower the ratings if
refinancing risks with respect to the February 2012 revolver
maturity remain a concern into 2011, or if sustained high leverage
makes a debt restructuring increasingly likely.  "If the company
violates its covenants and the likelihood of obtaining a
satisfactory cure worsens, or if it fails to meet its financial
obligations, including its cash interest obligation, S&P would
also lower the ratings.  On the other hand, S&P could consider
revising the outlook to stable or upgrade the ratings if Wastequip
appears likely to make significant improvement in financial
performance, for instance, if leverage trends back towards less
than 10x, the company maintains adequate headroom under its
covenants, and it appears to be on track to resolve its liquidity
challenges," Mr. Buet added.

WILLIAM LYON: S&P Downgrades Rating on Senior Notes to 'D'
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its rating on William
Lyon Homes' 10.75% senior unsecured notes due 2013 to 'D' from
'CC' after the company repurchased $10.5 million of outstanding
principal for $9.0 million.  S&P also revised its outlook to
negative from developing.  S&P affirmed its 'CCC' corporate credit
rating, which continues to reflect a vulnerable business risk
profile, as well as risks associated with a highly leveraged
capital structure.  Lastly, S&P affirmed its 'CC' ratings on the
company's senior notes due in 2012 and 2014.

"S&P considers the discounted repurchase to be tantamount to
default under its criteria for exchange offers and similar
restructurings," said credit analyst James Fielding.  "In
accordance with S&P's criteria, S&P expects to raise its rating on
these notes to 'CC' within approximately 24 hours because the
company completed its repurchase, and S&P is not aware of
additional discounted repurchases at this time."

S&P's negative outlook acknowledges that the housing recovery
appears to have stalled following the expiration of federal tax
credits for homebuyers expired in June 2010.  Single-family
housing starts and new home sales are now tracking the more
pessimistic scenario that S&P outlined in its industry economic
and ratings outlook in February 2010.  In this environment, S&P
expects that it may be more difficult for William Lyon to hold
profit margins and increase sales velocity in existing
communities.  S&P also believes that capital constraints may
impede the company's ability to substantially grow its community
count.  These conditions are likely to preclude an upgrade over
the next 12 months.  S&P would lower its rating if conditions
worsen and operating losses and/or impairments further erode
shareholder equity, such that William Lyon's cushion over its
tangible net worth covenant approaches $25 million.  S&P would
also lower its ratings on the William Lyon's senior notes if the
company pursues additional distressed exchanges or restructurings.


WINDSOR PETROLEUM: S&P Affirms 'BB+' Rating on $239.1 Mil. Notes
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its 'BB+' rating on
Windsor Petroleum Transport Corp.'s $239.1 million secured term
notes due Jan. 15, 2021 ($236.3 million outstanding as of June 30,
2010).  At the same time, S&P removed the rating from CreditWatch
with negative implications.  The outlook is stable.  S&P also
revised Windsor's recovery rating to '3' from '2', indicating its
expectation of a meaningful (50%-70%) recovery to lenders in the
event of a payment default.

The rating actions follow the extension of charters for the VLCCs
British Purpose and British Pride for one additional year through
July 2012.  As a result, the British Purpose will trade on a
market rate with a minimum of $20,000 per day from mid-July 2010
until mid-July 2012.  The British Pride will continue on a rate of
$24,895 per day until July 2011 followed by a market rate with a
minimum of $20,000 per day until the end of July 2012.  The
extensions provide lenders with greater short-term cash flow
certainty.  Windsor's next notification deadline is for the
British Progress in February 2011 for a termination 12 months
later in 2012.  The minimum rate charters on three of the four
Windsor vessels partly mitigate S&P's short-term concern of
terminations and exposure to the volatile VLCC charter market.


WINDSTREAM CORPORATION: Fitch Puts 'BB+' Rating on $500 Mil. Notes
------------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has assigned a 'BB+' rating to Windstream
Corporation's proposed $500 million of senior unsecured notes due
2020.  Windstream's Issuer Default Rating is 'BB+'.  The Rating
Outlook is Stable.

Proceeds from the offering, combined with cash on hand, are
expected to be used to fund the cash portion of the company's
proposed acquisition of Q-Comm Corporation as well as repay Q-
Comm's outstanding debt.  To complete the transaction -- which has
a total value of approximately $782 million -- Windstream will pay
$278 million in cash, repay an estimated $267 million of Q-Comm's
net debt and issue approximately 20.6 million shares of stock
valued at $237 million (based on an Aug. 17, 2010 closing price).
The transaction is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter
of 2010.

Windstream's ratings incorporate expectations for the company to
generate strong operating and free cash flows and to have access
to ample liquidity.  Moreover, the acquisition further diversifies
Windstream's revenues and, along with other recent acquisitions,
adds scale to the company, partly offsetting the effect of
competition for residential voice services on the company's
operations, which is Fitch's primary concern.  Integration risk is
an additional concern, but in Fitch's view is relatively modest,
owing to the company's experience with acquiring and incorporating
small- and medium-sized acquisitions.

Fitch believes the initial effect of the acquisition on
Windstream's leverage will be modest, and once synergies are
realized (in 2011) from the proposed and recent transactions,
leverage will be within the current expectations for Windstream's
'BB+' IDR.  By the end of 2010, Fitch expects Windstream's pro
forma leverage will approximate 3.5 times, slightly over the upper
end of the company's 3.2x to 3.4x historical range.

Q-Comm, including its wholly owned subsidiaries Kentucky Data
Link, Inc., and Norlight, Inc., provides regional fiber transport
and competitive local exchange services in 22 states highly
complementary to Windstream's existing operations.  Prior to the
close of the transaction Q-Comm will divest certain assets so that
the remaining businesses will consist of Kentucky Data Link and
Norlight.  The proposed acquisition generated approximately
$93 million in EBITDA over the last 12 months, and Windstream
expects to realize approximately $25 million in annual synergies.

On June 30, 2010, Windstream had $191.5 million available on its
revolver and $53.5 million of cash on its balance sheet, which
provided for liquidity below historical levels.  However, pro
forma for a July 2010 $400 million senior unsecured debt offering,
the company's liquidity was restored to historical levels as
proceeds were used to free up the revolver.  Pro forma for the
debt offering, availability on the revolver was approximately
$492 million (net of outstanding letters of credit).  Over the
past several quarters, the company has extended the maturity of
$457 million of the $500 million revolving credit facility from
July 2011 to July 2013, with the remainder maturing in July 2011.
In October 2009, Windstream amended its senior secured term loan
facilities to extend their maturities.  The maturity of
$168.9 million of the $283 million outstanding on term loan A was
extended from July 2011 to July 2013.  The term loan B, which as
of June 30, 2010 had a $1.358 billion balance outstanding, now has
approximately $1.070 billion maturing in December 2015 rather than
in July 2013.  In September 2010, Windstream's facilities were
amended to allow the company to receive certain broadband stimulus
grants, to increase the amount of permitted incremental senior
secured debt under the facilities to $1.6 billion from
$800 million and to permit the company to extend the term loan B
to the extent not previously extended.

Principal financial covenants in the credit facilities require a
minimum interest coverage ratio of 2.75x and a maximum leverage
ratio of 4.5x.  There are limitations on capital spending, and the
dividend is limited to the sum of excess free cash flow and net
cash equity issuance proceeds subject to pro forma leverage of
4.5x or less.

Other than the portion of the revolver and term loan A facility
maturing in 2011, upcoming maturities are nominal through 2012.
Liquidity is also supported by free cash flow, which Fitch
estimates will be in upper end of a $200 million to $300 million
range for 2010.  Capital spending, per the company's guidance, is
expected to range from $390 million to $410 million.


WINDSTREAM CORP: S&P Assigns 'B+' Rating on $500 Mil. Notes
-----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it assigned its issue-
level and recovery ratings to Little Rock, Ark.-based incumbent
local exchange carrier Windstream Corp.'s proposed $500 million of
senior notes due 2020 to be issued under rule 144A with
registration rights.  S&P rated the notes 'B+' with a recovery
rating of '5', which indicates S&P's expectation for modest (10%-
30%) recovery in the event of payment default.

At the same time, S&P affirmed all other ratings on Windstream,
including the 'BB-' corporate credit rating.  The outlook is
stable.

The company said it will use proceeds, coupled with cash on hand,
to fund the acquisition of privately held Q-Comm Corp., a regional
fiber transport and competitive local exchange carrier consisting
of subsidiaries Kentucky Data Link Inc. and Norlight Inc. S&P
expects the transaction to close in the fourth quarter of 2010.
S&P expects total debt outstanding to be around $7.2 billion.

"On a pro forma basis, including this acquisition and several
recently closed transactions, Windstream's leverage is around 4x
debt to EBITDA," explained Standard & Poor's credit analyst Allyn
Arden.  This calculation includes S&P's adjustments for operating
leases and unfunded pensions and OPEBs.

"S&P believes the company's credit metrics will remain within
levels S&P considers appropriate for the rating," added Mr. Arden.
While S&P views the businesses being acquired to be more exposed
to competitive pressures than Windstream's core incumbent local
exchange business, Q-Comm's revenue base is small relative to that
of Windstream.


ZALE CORP: Names Killion as CEO; Breeden Steps Down From Board
--------------------------------------------------------------
Zale Corporation on Thursday said its Board of Directors has named
Theo Killion Chief Executive Officer and a Member of the Board,
effective immediately. Mr. Killion has served as President and
Interim Chief Executive Officer since January 13, 2010.

"Theo has successfully led Zale through the critical initial
stages of our operational and financial turnaround, showing equal
skill in working with vendors, customers, shareholders and
employees," said John B. Lowe, Jr., Zale's Chairman. "We look
forward to Theo's contributions as Chief Executive Officer and as
a member of our Board as we execute on our turnaround strategy
designed to rebuild the Zale franchise."

Mr. Killion joined Zale Corporation in January 2008 as Executive
Vice President and was appointed President in August 2008.
Previously, he held senior management positions at Tommy Hilfiger,
Limited Brands, Macy's East and the Home Shopping Network.

The Company also announced these additional changes to its Board.

     -- Kenneth B. Gilman, a retail industry veteran, has joined
        the Company's Board as an independent director.  Mr.
        Gilman's experience includes 25 years at Limited Brands,
        Inc., serving in numerous capacities, including Chief
        Financial Officer and Chief Administrative Officer.  He
        was also Chief Executive Officer of Asbury Automotive
        Group, one of the largest automobile retailers in the
        United States.  He is currently on the Board of Liz
        Claiborne Inc. and Internet Brands Inc.

     -- Richard C. Breeden and James M. Cotter have resigned from
        the Board having served since January 2008. They have been
        instrumental in helping reshape the Company to address the
        very difficult macroeconomic environment confronting
        retailers.  Breeden Capital continues to be Zale's largest
        shareholder.

"We are extremely appreciative of the active role Richard and Jim
have played on our Board," Mr. Lowe said. "We are equally
fortunate to be working with Ken Gilman as a new Board member at a
pivotal time for our Company," Mr. Lowe added. "Ken's experience
in the retail sector is broad and deep, and he will be a
tremendous asset as we move forward with the next stage of our
transformation."

Mr. Killion said, "I am delighted to continue my service to the
Company as Chief Executive Officer and as a member of the Board.
Zale is clearly on the right track, and I am eager to move ahead
with our many opportunities, working closely with a strong
management team and Board."

On September 14, 2010, Zale said John Legg has been named Senior
Vice President, Supply Chain.  Mr. Legg will have responsibility
for warehousing, logistics and purchasing and will report to Matt
Appel, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

Mr. Legg was most recently Managing Director for Management
Services International, LLC, a global consulting services company
he formed to assess, design and launch supply chain solutions in
support of restructuring, process improvement and inventory
management initiatives.  Prior to that, he served as Senior Vice
President of Global Distribution and Logistics for Warnaco, Inc.
and Vice President of International Distribution and Logistics for
Liz Claiborne, Inc.  Mr. Legg is a graduate of Northeastern
University.

                           *     *     *

The Wall Street Journal's Miguel Bustillo reports that neither Mr.
Breeden nor company officials could immediately be reached for
comment late Thursday.

Mr. Breeden served as chairman of the Securities and Exchange
Commission from 1989 to 1993.

According to Mr. Bustillo, Mr. Breeden jostled with fellow Zale
directors after they learned that he had been approached by
investors interested in the company and kept the information to
himself, people involved in the process told the Journal earlier
this year. Mr. Breeden maintained he had directed overtures to the
company.  Some current and former Zale executives and board
members also told the Journal that the company had made mistakes
trying to please Mr. Breeden, including leasing an expensive
billboard at the stadium of the New York Yankees, a team Mr.
Breeden passionately supports.

Mr. Bustillo notes Zale stock has plummeted 72% in the past year,
following the forced resignation of the retailer's last chief
executive, Neal Goldberg, in January.  The 1,900-store chain last
reported quarterly earnings in May, disclosing a 2.2% drop in
sales at stores open at least a year, a big improvement from a 20%
decline in 2009.

The Journal notes Zale hasn't said when it will report earnings
next. Its shares fell 3.1% Thursday to $1.99.

* Bankruptcy Turnarounds Menaced by Investor Valuation Fights
-------------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Burton Lifland, speaking at ABI's Seventh Annual
Complex Financial Restructuring Program on Monday, said that
companies trying to rehabilitate themselves through bankruptcy are
threatened by valuation fights among late-arriving investors,
according to American Bankruptcy Institute.


* South Korean Pension Fund to Invest $300MM in U.S. Real Estate
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Wall Street Journal's Lingling Wei reports that South Korea's
National Pension Service, the world's fifth-largest pension fund,
has committed to invest $300 million in troubled real estate
through Cleveland-based Townsend Group, the latest sign that
foreign investors increasingly are venturing into the down-on-its-
luck U.S. property market.

Its primary focus will be on snapping up stakes in distressed
private-equity real-estate funds and recapitalizing them.

According to the Journal, the National Pension Service has more
than $250 billion in assets.


* Lawmakers Criticize SIPC Method for Paying Ponzi Victims
----------------------------------------------------------
Dow Jones Newswires' Jessica Holzer and Sarah Lynch report that
senior U.S. lawmaker Rep. Paul Kanjorski (D., Pa.) criticized the
method being used to pay claims to victims of the Madoff and other
Ponzi schemes as unfair and vowed to pursue changes at the
Securities Investor Protection Corp.  Dow Jones reports Rep.
Kanjorski said the SIPC has damaged investor trust by denying
claims of victims based on brokerage statements reporting false
paper profits.

"Investor trust, for which SIPA was designed to preserve, has been
seriously eroded by SIPC's narrow interpretations of its statutory
mandate," said Mr. Kanjorski, who heads the House Financial
Services Subcommittee on Capital Markets, Thursday at a hearing,
according to Dow Jones.  The Securities Investor Protection Act
established the SIPC in 1970 to return money to the customers of
failed brokerages.

"While SIPC's actions may follow the letter of the law, many would
argue that SIPC has ignored the spirit of the law," he continued.

According to Dow Jones, Mr. Kanjorski said he would pursue changes
to require the SIPC to fulfill claims of customers based on the
account statements they received from failed broker-dealers. He
also said he would explore whether the SIPC coverage should apply
to investment advisers as well as broker-dealers.

Dow Jones also reports that Rep. Scott Garrett (R., N.J.), the
panel's top Republican, said he was concerned about the plans of
Madoff trustee Irving Picard to clawback funds from people who
withdrew fraudulent profits from the Ponzi scheme over the years.

"SIPC leadership and the trustee have indicated that he will not
be going after so-called 'ordinary' people who are not leading a
lavish lifestyle and who had no knowledge of the fraud," Mr.
Garrett said. "But that's not what I'm hearing from my
constituents and others."

Dow Jones relates that in testimony Thursday, SIPC Chairman Orlan
Johnson defended the method being used by Mr. Picard, saying it
wouldn't be right to pay claims based on account statements
containing phony trading profits.

For the most part, brokerage accounts are protected by SIPC up to
$500,000.

In testimony, Dow Jones continues, Alabama Securities Commission
Director Joseph Borg urged an increase in coverage from $500,000
to $1 million.  He also said the protection levels should be
indexed to inflation.


* Wall Street Players Exposed By Lehman Collapse, Says Vernon
-------------------------------------------------------------
Christopher Vernon said in a statement that on the two year
anniversary of its collapse and bankruptcy filing, many contend
that Lehman Brothers hid the full extent of its problems from the
outside world until the bankruptcy.  While this may be true with
respect to main street investors, don't let Wall Street fool you
into thinking that its major players didn't see it coming.

Mr. Vernon said that one example of Wall Street's detailed
knowledge of Lehman's problems well in advance of its bankruptcy
involves the Union Bank of Switzerland, commonly known as UBS.
This is significant to us as retail investors because UBS, like
some other financial institutions on Wall Street, used this
knowledge to its own advantage rather than protect its own clients
or the investing public.

According to Mr. Vernon, although it would be impossible to detail
all of what UBS knew about Lehman in this short commentary, some
of what we have pieced together during our investigation is
detailed below.  This intimate knowledge that UBS had of Lehman
was due to its relationship as a lender of short term and
collateralized loans to Lehman.

"In 2007, UBS discussed a possible merger with Lehman.  During
that period, more than 75 percent of Lehman's overall equity --
more than $100 billion -- was concentrated in risky mortgage and
real estate assets.  So large was the amount of Lehman's illiquid
assets during this period that Lehman employees referred to their
balance sheets as "dead assets schedules."  During this period,
UBS also became aware that Lehman's credit default swap spread --
the cost to insure a loan to Lehman against default -- increased
dramatically.

"Throughout this same period, UBS was heavily recommending and
selling "structured notes" issued by Lehman to its own clients.
Although "structured notes" are very complicated products not
understood by many financial advisors, much less retail investors,
these products are for the most part unsecured and illiquid medium
term loans to Lehman.

"While urging its own client base to effectively loan money to
Lehman on an unsecured basis through illiquid structured notes,
UBS was using its own firm money to make fully collateralized
short term loans to Lehman, charging outrageously high interest
rates.  These Repo 105 loans by UBS to Lehman are now the focus of
an SEC investigation of Lehman.  UBS was able to charge such high
interest rates on these loans because it was aware of Lehman's
severe financial problems and resulting desperate need for the
Repo 105 loans.

"Through the spring of 2008, UBS continued to capitalize on
Lehman's problems by charging Lehman shocking rates of interest
for fully collateralized short term loans.  Simultaneously, UBS
continued to profit from the recommendation and sale of Lehman
"structured notes" -- which were loans to Lehman by UBS clients
that were unsecured, longer term, and far less appealing in terms
of likely returns than the "Repo 105" loans that UBS was making
to Lehman.

"How outrageous was UBS's behavior? By way of example, while
still selling Lehman structured notes to its own clients,
UBS charged the now "desperate" Lehman an interest fee of
$186 million on a very short term and fully collateralized
multi-billion dollar loan.  If this short term loan return
were annualized, it would equate to a return to UBS of more
than 150 percent annual interest on the loan.  As one of
Lehman's own employees said in early 2008, "Everyone knows 105
is an off balance sheet mechanism so counterparties are looking
for ridiculous levels" to try to squeeze Lehman.

"Although the collateral and return disparities between the loan
deals that UBS made for its clients and the loan deals that UBS
made for itself are very troubling, it was the liquidity disparity
that became especially significant in the summer of 2008 leading
up to Lehman's bankruptcy.  Specifically, UBS clients holding the
Lehman structured notes recommended by UBS were effectively unable
to sell or liquidate these notes until they matured.  In contrast,
over the summer of 2008, UBS significantly reduced its weekly Repo
105 loans it had made to Lehman.

"For the foregoing reasons, the Lehman bankruptcy in September of
2008 had a far greater impact on UBS's clients than on UBS itself.
When Lehman declared bankruptcy, UBS investors who had invested in
Lehman structured notes were left standing at the back of the line
with the unsecured creditors in the Lehman bankruptcy and will
likely recover little of their original investment.  In contrast,
after the Lehman bankruptcy announcement, UBS issued a press
release8 regarding its limited exposure due to its loans and other
transactions with Lehman.  Based on our investigation, it appears
that while UBS was systematically shedding its own exposure to
Lehman debt, it was continuing to develop and pitch Lehman
structured notes with so-called principal protection to its own
client base.

"UBS's public statement earlier this year that the Lehman
Bankruptcy Report does not show that the "counterparties such as
UBS acted inappropriately" is dubious.  The Lehman Bankruptcy
Report was designed to look into the activities of Lehman, not
other financial institutions on Wall Street, like UBS.  In
reality, the Lehman Bankruptcy Report represents further evidence
that firms such as UBS took advantage of the Lehman situation for
their own benefit, while utterly failing their own clients."

* BOOK REVIEW: Corporate Venturing - Creating New Businesses
               Within the Firm
------------------------------------------------------------
Author: Zenas Block and Ian C. MacMillan
Publisher: Beard Books, Washington, D.C. 2003
(reprint of 1993 book published by the President and Fellows of
Harvard College).
371 pages. $34.95 trade paper, ISBN 1-58798-211-0.

Creating new businesses within a firm is a way for a company to
try to tap into its potential while at the same time minimizing
risks.  A new business within a firm is like an entrepreneurial
venture in that it would have greater flexibility to
opportunistically pursue profits apart from the normal corporate
structure and decision-making processes.  Such a business is
different from a true entrepreneurial venture however in that the
business has corporate resources at its disposal.  Such a company
business venture has to answer to the company management too.
Corporate venturing -- to use the authors' term -- offers
innovative and stimulating business opportunities.  Though
venturing is in a somewhat symbotic relationship with the parent
firm, the venture would never threaten to ruin the parent firm as
a entrepreneur might be financially devastated by failure.

Block and MacMillan contrast an entrepreneurial enterprise with
their subject of corporate venturing, "When a new entrepreneurial
venture is created outside an existing organization, a wide
variety of environmental factors determine the fledgling
business's survival.  Inside an organization . . . senior
management is the most critical environmental factor."  This
circumstance is the basis for both the strengths and limitations
of a corporate venture.  In their book, the authors discuss how
senior management working with the leadership of a corporate
venture can work in consideration of these strengths and
weaknesses to give the venture the best chances for success.  If
the venture succeeds beyond the prospects and goals going into its
formation, it can always be integrated into the parent company as
a new division or subsidiary modeled after the regular parts of a
company with the open-ended commitment, regular hiring practices,
and reporting and coordination, etc., going with this.  As covered
by the authors, done properly with the right commitment, sense of
realism and practicality, and preliminary research and ongoing
analysis, corporate venturing offers a firm new paths of growth
and a way to reach out to new markets, engage in fruitful business
research, and adapt to changing market and industry conditions.
The principle of corporate venturing is the familiar adage,
"nothing ventured, nothing gained."  While it is improbable that a
corporate venture can save a dying firm, a characteristic of every
dying firm is a blindness about venturing.  Just thinking about
corporate ventures alone can bring to a firm a vibrancy and
imagination needed for business longevity.

Ideas, insights, and vision are the essence of corporate
venturing.  But these are not enough by themselves.  Corporate
venturing is based as much on the right personnel, especially the
top leaders.  The authors advise to select current employees of a
firm to lead a corporate venture whenever feasible because they
already have relationships with senior management who are the
ultimate overseers of a venture and they understand the corporate
culture.  In one of their several references to the corporate
consultant and motivational speaker Peter Drucker, the authors
quote him as identifying only half jokingly the most promising
employees to lead the corporate venture as "the troublemakers".
These are the ones who will be given the "great freedom and a high
level of empowerment" required to make the venture workable and
who also are most suited to "adapt rapidly to new information."
Such employees for top management of a venture are not entirely on
their own.  The other side of this, as Brock and MacMillan go
into, is for such venture management to earn and hold the trust
and confidence of the firm's top management and work within the
framework and follow the guidelines set for the venture.

Corporate venturing is an operation which is a hybrid of the
standard corporate interests and operations and an independent
business with entrepreneurial flexibility mainly from focus on one
product or service or at most a few interrelated ones, simplified
operations, and streamlined decision-making.  From identifying
opportunities and getting starting through the business plan and
corporate politics, Brock and MacMillan guide the readers into all
of the areas of corporate venturing.

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

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

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