AGA MANAGEMENT: Golf Course Revenues Not Cash Collateral
--------------------------------------------------------
Judge Randolph J. Haines rules that revenues generated through AGA
Management, LLC's management of the Papago Golf Course do not
constitute cash collateral prior to their being deposited in the
escrow account created by a Revenue Fund Agreement.  Judge Haines
said the revenues are property of the Debtor and of the estate,
not subject to any express or resulting trust.

The city of Phoenix, Ariz., and Compass Bank assert the revenues
are not cash collateral because they are not property of the
estate.  They contend the revenues are held in trust by the
Debtor, and the trust funds are excluded from property of the
estate by virtue of Bankruptcy Code Sec. 541(d).  The Debtor
contends the revenues are property of the estate, but are not cash
collateral because they are not pledged to secure any debt.

A copy of Judge Haines' December 20, 2010 Memorandum Decision is
available at http://is.gd/jhCFEfrom Leagle.com.

                       About AGA Management

AGA Management, LLC, was engaged by the city of Phoenix in
December 2007 to restore, renovate, and manage the Papago Golf
Course, located at 5595 E. Moreland Street, in Phoenix, Arizona.
To fund this restoration, renovation, and operation, the Debtor
loaned $9,850,000 from Industrial Development Authority of the
city of Phoenix through the issuance of Community Development
Revenue Bonds.  Russ Wiles at The Arizona Republic reported that
AGA Management stopped making payments on the loan around June
2010.

AGA Management filed for Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. D. Ariz.
Case No. 10-34580) on October 27, 2010.  John J. Hebert, Esq., and
Wesley Denton Ray, Esq., at Polsinelli Shughart, P.C., in Phoenix,
serve as the Debtor's counsel.  In its petition, the Debtor listed
under $500,000 in assets and between $1 million and $10 million in
debts.


AIG BAKER: Section 341(a) Meeting Scheduled for Jan. 18
-------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Trustee for Region 21 will convene a meeting of the
creditors of AIG Baker Tallahassee, LLC, on January 18, 2011, at
2:30 p.m.  The meeting will be held at Robert S. Vance Fed
Building, 1800 5th Ave. No., Room 127, Birmingham, Alabama.

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

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

Birmingham, Alabama-based AIG Baker Tallahassee, LLC, filed for
Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (Bankr. N.D. Ala. Case No.
10-07353) on December 14, 2010.  Lee R. Benton, Esq., at Benton &
Centeno, LLP, serves as the Debtor's bankruptcy counsel.  The
Debtor estimated its assets and debts at $50 million to
$100 million.

Affiliate AIG Baker Tallahassee Communities, LLC (Bankr. N.D. Ala.
10-07354) filed a separate Chapter 11 petition on the same day.
Communities estimated its assets and debts at $50 million to
$100 million.


AIG BAKER: Taps Benton & Centeno as Bankruptcy Counsel
------------------------------------------------------
AIG Baker Tallahassee, L.L.C., asks for authorization from the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Alabama to
employ Benton & Centeno, LLP, to represent the Debtor in its
Chapter 11 bankruptcy case.

Benton & Centeno will be paid based on these rates:

         Lee R. Benton, Esq.                $330
         Jamie A. Wilson, Esq.              $180

the Bankruptcy Code.

AMERICAN APPAREL: Deloitte Says Management Hid Fin'l Data
---------------------------------------------------------
American Apparel Inc. disclosed in a regulatory filing that on
December 15, 2010, the Audit Committee of the Company received
notice from Deloitte stating that Deloitte & Touche LLP had
concluded that the firm's audit report on the Company's previously
issued consolidated financial statements as of and for the year
ended December 31, 2009, including  Deloitte's report on internal
control over financial reporting at December 31, 2009, included in
the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended
December 31, 2009, should not be relied upon or associated with
the 2009 financials.

Deloitte explained that its conclusion was based on the
significance of the declines in operations and gross margin in the
Company's February 2010 monthly financial statement, combined with
the January 2010 monthly financial statements, the Company's
issuance of revised projections in early May 2010 which reflected
a significant decrease in the Company's 2010 projections, and
Deloitte's disagreement with the Company's conclusion that the
results shown in the February 2010 monthly financial statements
would not have required a revision to the Company's projections
as of the date of the 10-K filing and the issuance of Deloitte's
reports.  Deloitte further indicated that their decision
considered their inability to perform additional audit procedures,
their resignation as registered public accountants and their
professional judgment that they are no longer willing to rely on
management's representations due to Deloitte's belief that
management withheld from Deloitte the February 2010 monthly
financial statements until after the filing of the 2009 10-K and
made related misrepresentations.

The Audit Committee has discussed the matters disclosed with
Deloitte.  The Audit Committee and the Company's management are
currently evaluating the matters.  The Audit Committee has
commenced an investigation into the assertions that management
withheld the February 2010 monthly financial statements and
related misrepresentations.  Management disagrees with Deloitte's
assertions and does not believe that the February 2010 monthly
financial statements were withheld.  The Company does not
currently believe, including after discussions with Marcum, that
the reaudit will result in any changes to the 2009 financials,
though no assurance can be given in this regard.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter, effective July 22,
2010, Deloitte resigned as the independent registered public
accounting firm for American Apparel and requested that the
Company provide Deloitte with the additional information Deloitte
believed was necessary to review before the Company and Deloitte
could reach any conclusions as to the reliability of previously
issued consolidated financial statements for the year ended
December 31, 2009, and the auditors' report thereon.  On July 26,
2010, the Audit Committee of the Company engaged Marcum LLP as the
Company's independent auditors to audit the Company's financial
statements for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2010.

Since July 2010, the Company has responded to a series of
information requests from Deloitte to provide the additional
information sought by Deloitte and has met with representatives of
Deloitte to discuss the information and respond to additional
questions from time to time.

Marcum LLP has replaced Deloitte.

American Apparel disclosed in its quarterly report on Form 10-Q
for the third quarter of 2010 that based upon results of
operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2010, and

the remainder of 2010, the Company may not have sufficient
liquidity necessary to sustain operations for the next twelve

the Company will not be in compliance with the minimum
Consolidated EBITDA covenant under the $80,000,000 term loan with

AMERICAN MEDIA: Wins Nod to Pay Shippers & Warehousemen Claims
--------------------------------------------------------------
American Media Inc. and its units sought and obtained the
Bankruptcy Court's final approval to pay $272,000 for certain
prepetition shipping charges.  The Court also authorized financial
institutions to honor all related checks and electronic payment
requests.

The Debtors have told the Court their businesses depend entirely
upon the timely printing and distribution of their celebrity
journalism and health and fitness publications.  With respect to
the production of their publications, the Debtors direct the
delivery of raw paper from paper mills or purchasing agents to
their contracted third-party printers.  The Debtors purchase paper
supplies by two different methods:

  (i) approximately 15% of the Debtors' paper supplies is
      purchased directly from paper mills selected for location
      and ability to handle the Debtors' high-volume requests;
      and

(ii) approximately 85% of the Debtors' paper supplies is
      purchased through purchasing agents who are able to obtain
      the most favorable price by soliciting bids from many
      different smaller paper mills.

On average, the Debtors estimate that they purchase approximately
$4.2 million worth of raw paper per month to produce their total
average newsstand and subscription circulation of approximately
7.5 million copies per issue for all publications.

The Debtors' publications are distributed to newsstands primarily
by three wholesalers, which represent 81% of the newsstand
distribution market, as well as several smaller wholesalers who
represent the remaining 19%.  The Wholesalers obtain the finished
publications directly from the Debtors' printers and distribute
the finished products to the retail outlets in the United States
and Canada.  While many publications go directly from the printers
to retail locations, certain publications are stored for a time by
"break agents" who aggregate and maximize the shipment of the
Debtors' publications with other publishers' products in order to
increase transportation efficiency.

The Debtors' businesses depend on two separate and equally
important transportation processes: (a) the frequent delivery of
paper products in support of printing operations and (b) the
frequent, sometimes daily, delivery of finished publications to
approximately 103,000 retail outlets and subscribers.  The Debtors
contract with shippers including, without limitation, the
Wholesalers, railroads, truckers, and short-distance delivery
personnel to ship, transport, store, and deliver paper and other
printing raw materials, as well as finished publications, to and
from the Debtors' vendors, the Debtors' printers, and the Debtors'
customers.

When necessary, the Debtors and their agents also utilize certain
third-party warehousemen to store paper supplies and finished
publications while in transit.  Pursuant to agreements between the
Debtors and their printers, the Debtors' paper supplies are stored
on-site at the printers.  The Debtors also employ third-party
logistics coordinators for the in-bound, out-bound, and inter-
facility transport of goods and finished products.

As of the Petition Date, the Debtors estimate that the
Prepetition Shipping Charges are approximately $80,000.  The
Debtors maintain that the total proposed amount to be paid to the
Shipping and Warehousing Parties is minimal compared to the
importance of the Shipping and Warehousing Parties to the their
businesses and the losses they Debtors may suffer if their
operations are disrupted.

                        About American Media

(Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 10-16140) on November 17, 2010.  Judge
Martin Glenn presides over the case.  Ira S. Dizengoff, Esq., Arik
Preis, Esq., Meredith A. Lahaie, Esq., Stefanie L. Kurlanzik,
Esq., and Kevin M. Eide, Esq., at Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer &
Feld, LLP, in New York, serve as the Debtors' bankruptcy counsel.

bankers.  Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC is the claims and notice

AMI estimated assets of $0 to $50,000 and debts of $500 million to
$1 billion in its Chapter 11 petition.  AMO, AMI's operating unit,
estimated assets of $100 million to $500 million and debts of
$500 million to $1 billion in its Chapter 11 petition.

American Media filed, together with the petition, a pre-packaged
Chapter 11 plan where holders of notes and bank debt would receive
either cash, new notes or stock.  Judge Glenn confirmed the
Debtors' Amended Joint Prepackaged Plan of Reorganization on
December 20, 2010, clearing the way for the Debtors to emerge from
Chapter 11 reorganization by the end of 2010.

AMERICAN MEDIA: Wins Final Approval to Pay Trade Creditors
----------------------------------------------------------
American Media Inc. and its units sought and obtained a final
order from the Bankruptcy Court authorizing them to pay
prepetition claims of general unsecured trade creditors in the
ordinary course of business.  The Court also directed banks and
financial institutions to receive, process, honor and pay all
checks presented for payment and electronic payment requests.

In the ordinary course of business, the Debtors incur numerous
fixed, liquidated and undisputed obligations to their Trade
Creditors who provide, among other things, paper, printing
services, distribution services, office supplies and other basic
business necessities for the operation of their businesses.

According to the Debtors, allowing the payment of the Trade
Claims will minimize any disruption to their businesses and will
therefore allow for a smooth reorganization in their Chapter 11
cases.

To meet the demands inherent in the time-sensitive news publishing
industry, the Debtors rely on suppliers and vendors to deliver the
materials necessary to put out their weekly and monthly
publications, to provide the space to display the publications,
and to print and deliver those publications before their content
becomes obsolete.  Without those vendors, the value of the
Debtors' business operations would be significantly diminished
and, in some cases, operations may arrest altogether.

A. Printing and Pre-Press Operational Vendors

Maintenance of good business relations with the outside vendors
that perform the Debtors' printing and pre-press operations, which
involve the conversion of electronic editorial and advertising
files into printed publications, is essential for the Debtors'
successful reorganization.  The Debtors outsource a number of
printing and pre-press operations, including (i) transmittal of
files electronically to third party printing plants for
production, (ii) printing of their publications, and (iii)
transportation and delivery services.

B. Paper Suppliers

The Debtors also purchase large quantities of paper products at a
reduced cost compared to other potential paper sources.  If these
reduced-cost Trade Creditors stop supplying the Debtors with
goods, the Debtors relate that they would have to purchase those
goods from more expensive vendors, who may lack the ability to
provide the necessary goods in the type and quantities the
Debtors require, all of which would negatively impact the Debtors'
revenue and impair their ability to operate.

C. Subscription Needs

Other Trade Creditors handle all of the Debtors' subscription
needs for the Debtors' United States and Canada operations,
including handling all of the billing and revenue collection
services and the storage of subscribers' personal account
information.  The Debtors maintain that certain Trade Creditors
track information on the number of magazine copies sold in the
United States and Canada, which information is then made available
to third parties, like advertisers.  According to the Debtors,
this audited information is critical to the Debtors' advertisers
who make spending decisions based on the number of subscribers or
copies sold, and no other companies provide these or similar
services.

D. Distribution Services

The Debtors rely on certain Trade Creditors to distribute the
single copies of their publications to approximately 103,000
retail outlets in the United States and Canada, representing what
the Debtors believe to be substantially complete coverage of
periodical outlets in these countries.  These Trade Creditors also
process returns of the Debtors' publications, bill and collect
from the retailers, and make payments to the Debtors' national
distributors.  Without these Trade Creditors, the Debtors would be
unable to circulate their magazines for sale and thus they would
lose a substantial portion of their revenue stream.

E. Retail Incentives and Rack Costs

The Debtors' publications at supermarkets, convenience stores,
pharmacies, newsstands and other retail outlets are sold from
racks, displays and retail display pockets placed at specific
locations at the retailers' businesses.  The Debtors are
responsible for three types of charges payable to these retailers;
specifically, (a) fees paid in exchange for use of the actual
space at the checkout counter for display purposes, (b) retail
display allowances, which are fees paid based on quarterly claim
forms from the retailer, generally equal to 10% of the cover price
for each magazine sold, and (c) retail display pockets, which are
fees fixed per pocket the retailer devotes to the Debtors'
publications.

F. Miscellaneous Services

Other Trade Creditors provide vital editorial services and
editorial content to the Debtors, including overseeing the quality
control, overall layout and content of certain of the Debtors'
publications.  Other Trade Creditors support the various IT
infrastructure needs of the Debtors, like hardware and software
support for the editorial staff, accounting, human resources,
legal departments, internet web sites for the Debtors' various
digital properties, and other essential functions.

The Debtors estimate that, over the anticipated duration of their
Chapter 11 cases, they will owe approximately $20.4 million on
account of undisputed Trade Claims for prepetition goods and
services that become due and payable after the Petition Date.
Of that, the Debtors are seeking to pay approximately $7.3 million
to Trade Creditors within the first 20 days of these cases.

The Debtors believe that payment of the Trade Claims will not
create an imbalance of their cash flows because the majority of
these obligations have customary payment terms and will not be
immediately payable.  The Debtors represent that they have
sufficient availability of funds to pay the amounts described
herein in the ordinary course of business by virtue of expected
cash flows from ongoing business operations and anticipated access
to cash collateral.

Christopher Polimeni, executive vice president for Finance and
Planning, chief financial officer and treasurer of American Media,
Inc., stated in a declaration in support of the Motion that the
Motion should be granted because:

  (a) it will help avoid the irreparable harm and disruption to
      the Debtors' business and thus maximize the value of their
      estate;

  (b) it will enable the Debtors to stabilize relationships with
      vendors critically important to their business;

  (c) it will cause no harm to the Debtors' other generally
      unsecured creditors since the Plan provides for all
      holders of general unsecured claims to be paid in full;
      and

  (d) the administrative agent for the lenders of the Debtors'
      prepetition credit facility, whose cash collateral is
      being used to pay the Trade Creditors, has consented to
      the relief sought in the Motion.

AMERICAN MEDIA: Wins Final Nod to Pay Employee Wages & Benefits
---------------------------------------------------------------
American Media, Inc., and its debtor-affiliates sought and
obtained final authority from the Bankruptcy Court to:

   (i) pay and honor certain prepetition wages, commissions,
       salaries, employee benefits, and other compensation,
       taxes, withholdings and reimbursable expenses;

  (ii) pay, honor and continue all obligations relating to
       medical and other benefit programs; and

(iii) pay and honor certain payments to non-employee members of
       their workforces.

As of the Petition Date, the Debtors employed approximately 638
full-time and 1,246 part-time employees in hourly, salaried,
supervisory, management, and administrative positions to perform
the functions necessary to effectively and efficiently operate
their businesses.  Approximately 633 of the Employees are
salaried, and the remaining Employees are compensated on an hourly
basis.  All of the Debtors' Employees are employed in the United
States, except for six Employees who are employed in Canada by
Distribution Services, Inc.

The Employees perform a variety of critical functions, including
accounting, administrative support, accounts payable, billing
operations, compliance, human resources, information technology,
legal, marketing, advertising, payroll, advertising sales,
distribution, editorial, marketing, production, logistics, and
circulation.

The Debtors believe that, as of the Petition Date, the majority of
all prepetition amounts owed on account of the Employee
Obligations have been satisfied.  However, certain wage
obligations have accrued since the Debtors' last payroll payment.
Additionally, the Debtors note, certain amounts may remain
outstanding due to a number of factors, including:

  (a) discrepancies that exist between amounts paid prepetition
      and the amounts that should have been paid;

  (b) the possibility that some prepetition checks or other
      payments may not have cleared before the Petition Date;

  (c) the fact that certain accrued obligations may not yet have
      become due and payable as of the Petition Date; and

  (d) the possibility that certain prepetition amounts related
      to the Employees may have accrued but remain outstanding
      because they are pending approval or they have not yet
      been submitted.

The Debtors estimate that these amounts remain unpaid with respect
to the Employee Obligations as of the Petition Date:

   Payroll Obligations                     $529,275
   Employee Severance Obligations          $235,742
   Employee Incentive Programs                   $0
   Gross Pay Deductions, etc.                     -
   Reimbursable Expenses                    $70,172
   Employee Benefits                              -
   Temporary Employees                       $2,010
   Freelancers                                   $0
   Payments to Sources                           $0
   Commissions to Non-Employees             $32,293
   Third Party Consultants                  $53,121

The Court also authorized financial institutions to honor all
related checks and electronic payment request.

ARYX THERAPEUTICS: Shares to Trade at NASDAQ Capital Market
-----------------------------------------------------------
ARYx Therapeutics Inc. has been notified by The NASDAQ Stock
Market that the listing of its common stock will be transferred
from The NASDAQ Global Market to The NASDAQ Capital Market
effective with the open of business on December 21, 2010.

On October 8, 2010, following notice of non-compliance with the
NASDAQ stockholders' equity requirement for continued listing on
The NASDAQ Global Market, ARYx requested a hearing before a NASDAQ
Listing Qualifications Panel.  The NASDAQ decision to transfer
ARYx's securities to The NASDAQ Capital Market follows the hearing
with the Panel in November and the Panel's review of additional
information, including the information contained in the Company's
press release dated December 15, 2010.

While ARYx does not currently satisfy the stockholders' equity
requirement for continued listing on The NASDAQ Capital Market,
ARYx presented a plan to the Panel for regaining and sustaining
compliance with the stockholders' equity requirement and all other
applicable listing requirements, including the $1.00 per share bid
price requirement.  Accordingly, the Panel has directed ARYx to
file a transfer application with the NASDAQ Staff and, provided
the transfer application is approved, the Panel has granted the
Company through April 4, 2011, to regain compliance with the
stockholders' equity requirement for The NASDAQ Capital Market.
The Panel decision further provides that ARYx must demonstrate a
closing bid price of at least $1.00 per share for ten consecutive
business days on or before May 23, 2011.  While the Company is
working toward regaining compliance with all applicable listing
requirements, there can be no assurance that it will be able to do
so or that its securities will continue to remain listed on The
NASDAQ Stock Market.

ARYx previously announced that it is waiting for definitive
guidance from the Food and Drug Administration on the Phase 3
development of its product candidate to treat various
gastrointestinal disorders, naronapride.  That guidance was to
have been received by November 5, 2010 and has instead been
delayed by the FDA until the end of the first quarter 2011.
Efforts are underway to continue to finance ARYx beyond
December 31, 2010 and, in conjunction with this, the ARYx board of
directors has substantially reduced the Company's expenditures so
that ARYx can maintain its functions as an operating company
awaiting the FDA guidance.  This includes, among other actions,
the retention of all ARYx officers under a compensation plan as
disclosed in the Form 8-K filed on December 16, 2010.  There is no
assurance ARYx will be able to obtain necessary agreements from
its secured creditors and the additional funding from investors
needed to continue operations beyond 2010 and through to the
receipt of the anticipated FDA guidance.

BERENFELD SPRITZER: Spokesman Blames Demise to Rothstein Ties
-------------------------------------------------------------
Paul Brinkmann, writing for South Florida Business Journal,
reports that a spokesman for Coral Gables-based Berenfeld Spritzer
Shechter & Sheer, one of South Florida's largest accounting firms,
confirmed that 14 partners and 100 associates would join Richmond,
Virginia-based Cherry Bekaert & Holland.  Five other partners will
pursue other career paths.

Emery Sheer, partner at Berenfeld, told the Business Journal that
the scandal of Ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein had been a major
factor in the demise of the firm, coming during a major recession.
Berenfeld had provided tax accounting to Mr. Rothstein, his law
firm and a major feeder fund in the Ponzi case.

Founded in 1971, the Berenfeld firm said in an August news release
that it had 150 professionals providing accounting, audit, tax,
litigation support and advisory services, the Business Journal
notes.


BIOFUEL ENERGY: To Raise $35.9-Mil. in Rights Offering
------------------------------------------------------
Biofuel Energy Corp. disclosed in an amended Form S-1 filing with
the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 15, 2010, that
it is distributing at no charge to the record holders of its
common stock as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on December 27,
2010, non-transferable subscription rights to purchase depositary
shares representing shares of Series A Non-Voting Convertible
Preferred Stock.

The number of subscription rights distributed to the Company's
record holders will be 64,210,390.  Subject to certain conditions
and possible reductions, the total proceeds expected to be raised
in the rights offering is $35,957,818.

The subscription rights will be distributed pro rata to the
holders of the Company's common stock based on the number of
shares of common stock held on the record date.  Each subscription
right will permit the holder of such right to acquire, at a rights
price equal to $0.56 per depositary share, one depositary share
under the basic subscription privilege and will also provide an
over-subscription privilege.  This rights price represents an
approximately 66% discount to the closing price of the Company's
common stock on December 13, 2010.

The over-subscription privilege will entitle the holder of the
subscription right to subscribe for an additional amount of
depositary shares equal to up to 100% of the depositary shares for
which the holder was otherwise entitled to subscribe.  The
subscription rights will expire and have no value if they are not
exercised by 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on January 28, 2011,
the expiration date.

The subscription rights may not be sold or transferred.  All
exercises of subscription rights are irrevocable.  A portion of
the rights offering to certain of the Company's existing
stockholders is being conducted on a private, non-registered
basis.

Each depositary share will represent a fractional interest in a
share of Series A Non-Voting Convertible Preferred Stock equal to
approximately 0.0311 of a share of Series A Non-Voting Convertible
Preferred Stock and will entitle the holder, through the
depositary, to a proportional fractional interest in the rights
and preferences of such share of Series A Non-Voting Convertible
Preferred Stock, including conversion, dividend, liquidation and
voting rights, subject to the terms of the deposit agreement.

Each share of Series A Non-Voting Convertible Preferred Stock
will, following the approval by the holders of the Company's
common stock and class B common stock of the authorization and
issuance of additional shares of common stock, automatically
convert into approximately 32.1052 shares of common stock.  Upon
conversion of the Series A Non-Voting Convertible Preferred Stock,
each depositary share shall entitle the holder thereof to receive
one share of common stock and, upon the distribution of one share
of common stock to the holder of each such depositary share, each
such depositary share shall be automatically cancelled and have no
further value.

The depositary will distribute the shares of common stock it
receives upon conversion of the Series A Non-Voting Convertible
Preferred Stock to the holders of the depositary shares entitled
to receive such distribution in proportion to the number of
outstanding depositary shares held by each such holder, on the
date of receipt or as soon as practicable thereafter.

BioFuel Energy Corp. is a holding company and its sole asset is
its membership interest in BioFuel Energy, LLC.  Concurrent with
this rights offering, the LLC will be conducting a private
placement.  The LLC's concurrent private placement has been
structured so as to provide the holders of membership interests in
the LLC (other than BioFuel Energy Corp.), whose interests are
exchangeable on a one-for-one basis for shares of common stock,
with a private placement that is economically equivalent to this
rights offering.  Subject to certain conditions and possible
reductions, the total proceeds expected to be raised by the LLC in
the LLC's concurrent private placement is $10,042,182.

Existing stockholders and holders of membership interests in the
LLC that are also lenders under the Company's bridge loan
agreement have agreed, subject to certain conditions and possible
reductions, to purchase depositary shares in an amount equal to
their full basic subscription privileges, to participate in the
LLC's concurrent private placement for their full LLC basic
purchase privileges and to purchase immediately prior to
expiration of this rights offering all of the available depositary
shares not otherwise sold in this rights offering and to purchase
all of the available preferred membership interests in the LLC not
otherwise sold in the LLC's concurrent private placement.  Any
depositary shares purchased by these parties will be purchased
directly from us on a private basis and are not being registered
pursuant to the registration statement of which this prospectus is
a part.

The depositary shares will be transferable following the initial
issuance of the depositary shares.  The depositary shares will not
be listed for trading on any stock exchange.  The depositary
shares are a new issue of securities for which there currently is
no market.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on March 31, 2010,
Grant Thornton LLP, in Denver, expressed substantial doubt about
the Company's ability to continue as a going concern, following
its 2009 results.  The independent auditors noted that the Company
has experienced declining liquidity and has $16.5 million of
outstanding working capital loans that mature in September 2010.

"If we are unable to raise sufficient proceeds from the rights
offering, the LLC's concurrent private placement, or from other
sources, we may be unable to continue as a going concern, which
could potentially force us to seek relief through a filing under
the U.S. Bankruptcy Code," the Company said in its Form 10-Q for
the third quarter of 2010.


BLUEGREEN CORP: Completes Private Offering of $107 Million Notes
----------------------------------------------------------------
Bluegreen Corporation completed a private offering and sale of
$107.6 million of investment-grade, timeshare loan-backed notes on
December 17, 2010.  The 2010-A Term Securitization consisted of
the issuance of $88.0 million of A rated and $19.6 million of BBB-
rated timeshare-loan backed notes with coupon rates of 5.1% and
7.5%, respectively, which blended to a weighted average coupon
rate of 5.5%.  The advance rate for this transaction was 85.25%.
BB&T Capital Markets acted as the sole placement agent and initial
purchaser.

The amount of the timeshare receivables sold was $126.2 million,
substantially all of which was provided at closing.  The gross
proceeds of $107.6 million were used to:

     -- repay Branch Banking and Trust $93.6 million, representing
        all amounts currently outstanding under the Company's
        existing receivables purchase facility with BB&T,
        including accrued interest;

     -- capitalize a reserve fund; and

     -- pay fees and expenses associated with the transaction.

The remainder of the proceeds, $9.9 million, will be used for
general corporate purposes.

While ownership of the timeshare receivables included in the
2010-A Term Securitization is transferred and sold for legal
purposes, the transfer of these timeshare receivables will be
accounted for as a secured borrowing for financial accounting
purposes.

BONDS.COM GROUP: Has Until Jan. 20 to Raise $8 Million
------------------------------------------------------
Bonds.com Group, Inc., and UBS Americas Inc. amended the UBS
Purchase Agreement on December 15, 2010, to extend the deadline
for the Company to raise an aggregate of at least $8,000,000 from
December 15, 2010, to January 20, 2011.  To date, the Company has
raised an aggregate of $3,500,000 pursuant to this financing.

Bonds.com consummated a financing transaction pursuant to which,
among other things, the Company entered into a Unit Purchase
Agreement with UBS Americas and a Unit Purchase Agreement with
Bonds MX, LLC, on October 19, 2010.

The UBS Purchase Agreement contains a provision pursuant to which
significant adjustments may be made to the terms and amount of the
securities issued to UBS Americas and other investors pursuant to
such financing transaction.  Among other adjustments, the UBS Unit
Purchase Agreement provides for significant adjustments to the
number and terms of the securities issued and issuable to UBS
Americas and the other investors if the Company does not raise an
aggregate of at least $8,000,000 by a specified deadline.

Ppursuant to the terms of the amendments of certain outstanding
convertible promissory notes, if additional securities are issued
to UBS Americas, the holders of the convertible notes would
receive the same proportionate adjustment.  Any adjustments would
be significantly dilutive to existing securities holders and could
create substantial challenges for the Company's efforts to raise
additional capital.

BPP TEXAS: Court Extends Schedules Filing Deadline Until Jan. 18
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Brenda T. Rhoades of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Eastern District of Texas extended, at the behest of BPP Texas,
LLC, et al., the deadline for the filing of schedules of assets
and liabilities, and statements of financial affairs until
January 18, 2011.

The original schedules filing deadline is January 4, 2011.  The
Debtors asked for an extension, saying that the bankruptcy cases
were filed on an emergency basis because the Debtors' lender
initiated multiple state court proceedings against the Debtors,
threatening the appointment of a receiver for the Hotels and later
foreclosure on the Debtors' properties.  The Debtors said that
there was little preparation for filing of the bankruptcy cases
and they didn't have the opportunity to compile the detailed
information necessary to complete their schedules and statements.

The Debtors are a part of a complex financial and corporate
structure comprising of, among other things, 22 hotels, with
multiple executory contracts, franchises, and financial
relationships, all of which need to be fully understood to be
properly scheduled.  The complexities, coupled with the emergency
filing, made it difficult for the Debtors and their new bankruptcy
counsel to begin preparing Debtors' schedules and statements of
financial affairs, especially as the Debtors otherwise prepared
for their filings, first day motions, and potential litigation
over cash collateral -- all of which are more important for the
future success of their reorganization efforts at this critical
early stage of the bankruptcy cases.

10-44378).  Davor Rukavina, Esq., and Jonathan Lindley Howell,
Esq., at Munsch Hardt Kopf & Harr, P.C., serve as the Debtors'

to $10 million and debts at $50 million to $100 million.

BPP Wisconsin estimated its assets at $10 million to $50 million
and debts at $50 million to $100 million.


BPP TEXAS: Gets Interim Nod to Use Citizens Bank's Cash Collateral
------------------------------------------------------------------
BPP Texas, LLC, et al., sought and obtained interim authorization
from the Hon. Brenda T. Rhoades of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Eastern District of Texas to use cash, which constitutes
collateral securing obligations to Citizens Bank of Pennsylvania,
for the period commencing on December 21, 2010, through and
including the conclusion of a final hearing.

The Debtors are each obligated to Citizens in an amount of at
least $66 million.  Pursuant to multiple prepetition loan and
security agreements, Citizens claims perfected security interests
and liens in substantially all of the Debtors' assets, including
cash collateral.  Citizens has alleged that the Debtors are in
default of their obligations, and has accelerated the obligations,
refusing to restructure the terms of those obligations.

Davor Rukavina, Esq., at Munsch Hardt Kopf & Harr, P.C., explains
that the Debtors need the money to fund their Chapter 11 case, pay
suppliers and other parties.  The Debtors will use the collateral
pursuant to a budget, a copy of which is available for free at:

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

In exchange for using the cash collateral, the Debtors will grant
Citizens automatically perfected, valid, and binding replacement
lien, with the same priority and validity as existed on the
Petition Date, in and to all of the Debtors' property and estates,
to the extent of any diminution in the value of Citizens'
collateral.  To the extent that there is a failure of adequate
protection regarding the Debtors' usage of cash collateral,
Citizens will be granted an automatic superpriority administrative
claim which will be superior in priority to all other unsecured
administrative claims.

The Debtors will provide Citizens monthly reports, monthly balance
sheets, reconciliation reports comparing budgeted expenditures to
actual expenditures and other non-proprietary reports and
financial data reasonably requested by Citizens.

Cash, bank accounts, and cash equivalents for each debtor will be
kept separate by that debtor from each other debtor.  The Debtors
must not comingle funds or transfer funds to each other unless the
Court, by separate order entered after notice and a hearing,
authorizes it.

The Court has set a final hearing for January 19, 2011, at
9:00 a.m. to consider the Debtors' continued use of the cash
collateral.

CENTRAL KANSAS CRUDE: Wins Court Approval of Liquidation Plan
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Robert E. Nugent of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Kansas confirmed Central Kansas Crude LLC's Plan of
Liquidation Dated, October 21, 2010.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on November 12, the
Disclosure Statement explaining the Plan provided that the
Debtor's operations have ceased since the sale of all its assets
to Parnon and a majority of the Debtor's assets have been
converted to cash, with this exception:

     -- The Debtor has $94,128.95 in an interest bearing account
        at Intrust Bank. These funds are the remaining proceeds
        from the sale of assets to Parnon.

     -- The Debtor has $7,279,532.37 in an interest bearing
        account at Emprise Bank. These funds are the proceeds from
        the Debtor's settlement with Bank of America on the
        Debtor's Sec. 503(b)(9) claim in the SemCrude bankruptcy.

     -- The Debtor has or will be awarded shares in the
        reorganized SemCrude under SemCrude's Fourth Amended
        Disclosure Statement and Plan. The Debtor intends to
        liquidate that stock and convert it to cash to be
        distributed under the provisions of its Liquidation Plan.

The Debtor does not have any other assets.

According to the Disclosure Statement, the Debtor believes that
$7,373,661 on hand as of October 18, 2010, is sufficient to pay
Kansas and Oklahoma producers all of the money owed for crude they
provided the Debtor in July 2008, fund the settlement of AGV
Corp.'s $94,128 secured claim, and all unsecured, priority
creditors.  Any remaining balance of AGV's claim after the
payments will be treated as a general unsecured claim.  After
those cash reserves are distributed, any remaining cash, proceeds
from the sale of SemCrude stock, and Chapter 5 avoidance actions
will be used to make a pro rata distribution to the general,
unsecured creditors.

Upon confirmation of the Debtor's Plan, any remaining assets that
have not been liquidated or converted to cash and any causes of
action will be vested with the Liquidating Trustee.  Edward
J. Nazar will be appointed the Liquidating Trustee. Mr. Nazar is
currently acting as the Court appointed bankruptcy counsel for the
Debtor.

The secured claim of the Peoples Bank of Pratt, N.A. has been
separately satisfied in the bankruptcy case.  The Peoples Bank
will not participate in the distribution under the Plan.

The Debtor filed an omnibus objection against the interest holders
in Class 5.  If the objection is granted, the interest holders
claims will be disallowed.  The Debtor does not anticipate any
funds to be available to pay the Class 6 equity holders.

agreement with various entities on December 17, 2010.

Pursuant to the Subscription Agreement, the Company sold the
subscribers to $150,000 principal amount of promissory notes and
issued the Subscribers 3,750,000 Class A Warrants, which equals
one Class A Warrant for each two shares which would be issued upon

of any amounts due under the Notes, the interest rate will be
increased to 18%.  Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, all

Pursuant to the terms of the Notes, the Subscribers have the
right, so long as the Notes are not fully repaid, to convert the

the average of the five lowest closing bid prices for the
Company's Common Stock as reported by Bloomberg L.P. for the
Principal Market for the 10 trading days preceding the date the
Subscriber gives the Company notice of conversion, as may be
adjusted.  The Notes contain anti-dilution provisions, including
but not limited to if the Company issues shares of its common
stock at less than the then existing conversion price, the
conversion price of the Notes will automatically be reduced to
such lower price.

The Notes and Warrants contain limitations on conversion,
including the limitation that the holder may not convert its Note
to the extent that upon conversion the holder, together with its
affiliates, would own in excess of 4.99% of the Company's

CREDIT-BASED ASSET: To Unload Worthless Securities by Yearend
-------------------------------------------------------------
Peg Brickley, writing for Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review,
reports that Credit-Based Asset Servicing and Securitization LLC
is seeking to abandon or sell the "first-loss" pieces of its
former mortgage-investment business by the end of the year, saying
the tax implications of keeping them after December 31, 2010,
would create a significant burden.

Ms. Brickley reports C-BASS wants to abandon trust securities that
were rendered worthless in the collapse of the housing market, and
is seeking a buyer for securities grouped under the rubric of
"equity investments."  She relates C-BASS said the mortgage-
related assets have lost so much value it will cost more than
they're worth to file tax returns for them.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on December 9, 2010,
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News, said
C-BASS received approval from the bankruptcy court to hold an
auction on January 10, to test whether the $2.4 million offer from
FIG LLC is the best bid for the collateral management business.
Other bids are due December 31.  C-BASS originally wanted to hold
the auction on December 14.

                           About C-BASS

Credit-Based Asset Servicing and Securitization LLC is a
subprime mortgage investor based in New York City.  C-Bass is
a joint venture, owned in part by units of mortgage insurers

CRYPTEK INC: Shulman Rogers Ordered to Disgorge Portion of Fees
---------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Stephen S. Mitchell granted the request of Gordon P. Peyton,
the Chapter 7 trustee for Cryptek, Inc. -- joined by
administrative expense claimants Kasimer & Annino, P.C. and Sonex,
Inc. -- to require the law firm of Shulman, Rogers, Gandel, Pordy,
& Ecker, P.A., to disgorge roughly $35,000 of the nearly $163,000
in approved fees and expenses that were paid to the firm -- in
part by the trustee but mostly by drawing down on a retainer --
following conversion of the Debtor's case.  Shulman Rogers
represented the Debtor prior to conversion.  The trustee asserts
that disgorgement is appropriate because the estate is
administratively insolvent, and disgorgement is necessary to
achieve equality of distribution among the chapter 11
administrative claimants.

"It goes without saying that disgorgement is being directed solely
in order to achieve equality of distribution and is not intended
as an adverse reflection on the quality of the legal services it
provided to the client," Judge Mitchell said.

DELPHI CORP: Court Closes Five Affiliates' Chapter 11 Cases
-----------------------------------------------------------
Judge Robert D. Drain of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York has signed a final decree and order
closing the Chapter 11 cases of five Delphi Corp. affiliates,
according to a docket entry in the bankruptcy cases of Reorganized
Delphi Corporation, now known as DPH Holdings Corp.,

The Delphi affiliates with closed cases are:

   Closing Debtor                                 Case No.
   --------------                                 --------
   Delphi Automotive Systems International, Inc.  05-44589
   Delphi China LLC                               05-44577
   Delphi Furukawa Wiring Systems LLC             05-47452
   Delphi LLC                                     05-44615
   MobilAria, Inc.                                05-47474

According to the docket entry, Judge Drain signed the Closing
Order on December 20, 2010.  However, the Closing Order itself is
not available in the Court's public dockets, only the list of the
Closing Debtors.

John Wm. Butler, Jr., Esq., at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher &
Flom LLP, in Chicago, Illinois, has told the Court that the
Reorganized Debtors have completed the process of reconciling all
claims and have no further obligations pending under the Modified
First Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization with respect to the
Chapter 11 cases of the Closing Debtors.  All motions, contested
matters and adversary proceedings have been finally resolved with
respect to the Closing Debtors, he said.  Indeed, one of the
Closing Debtors, Delphi China LLC, was acquired by Delphi
Automotive LLP through a stock sale, he added.

The entry of a final decree and order in the Closing Debtors'
Chapter 11 cases is appropriate, Mr. Butler said.  He argued that
all six factors set forth in the Advisory Committee Note to
Bankruptcy Rule 3022 have been satisfied with respect to each of
the Closing Debtors' reorganization cases, namely:

  (a) the Modified Plan was approved on July 30, 2009 pursuant
      to a final order of the Bankruptcy Court;

  (b) there are no deposits that need to be distributed with
      respect to the Closing Debtors;

  (c) the property proposed to be transferred pursuant to the
      Modified Plan has been transferred with respect to each of
      the Closing Debtors, including the stock sale of Delphi
      China LLC to Delphi Automotive LLP;

  (d) DPH Holdings is managing the assets of the Reorganized
      Debtors in accordance with the Modified Plan;

  (e) DPH Holdings has commenced distributions under the
      Modified Plan and will make the distributions on account
      of Allowed Claims set forth in the Modified Plan; and

  (f) all motions, contested matters and adversary proceedings
      will be finally resolved with respect to each Closing
      Debtor prior to entry of the Final Decree and Order.

Likewise, each of the cases of the Closing Debtors has reached
the point of substantial consummation as defined under Section
1102 of the Bankruptcy Code, Mr. Butler added.

Nevertheless, the Chapter 11 cases of DPH Holdings and certain
other Reorganized Debtors will remain open to complete the
administration and implementation of the Modified Plan until a
final decree is entered in those cases, Mr. Butler stated.  The
closing of the Closing Debtors' cases thus will not impact the
continued implementation of the Modified Plan, he assured the
Court.

Mr. Butler also said that closing of the Chapter 11 cases of the
Closing Debtors will result in cost savings for the Reorganized
Debtors, as they will no longer need to pay ongoing quarterly fees
for the Closing Debtors.

DELPHI CORP: Former CEO Says GM Sought Huge Payments for Warranty
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Greg Gardner of The Detroit Free Press reported that J.T.
Battenberg III, Delphi Corp.'s former chief executive officer,
told a federal court earlier this month that General Motors
Corporation sought huge payments for warranty claims from Delphi
after the automaker spun off the parts supplier.

Mr. Battenberg made the statement when he took the stand at the
December 1, 2010 trial presided by Judge Avern Cohn of the U.S.
District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan in connection
to a civil securities lawsuit initiated by the U.S. Securities
and Exchange Commission against Mr. Battenberg and former Delphi
accounting officer Paul Free, The Free Press related.  A
10-member jury will decide on the case, according to the report.

Mr. Battenberg said GM leaders told Delphi that it owed as much
as $800 million to cover the cost of warranty claims that GM said
were traceable to faulty Delphi parts, the report related.  "We
were shocked.  We thought it couldn't happen," The Free Press
quoted Mr. Battenberg as saying during the trial.

The SEC lawsuit is based primarily on Mr. Battenberg's role in
the accounting of a $237 million payment Delphi made to GM in
2000.  According to the SEC, Delphi paid GM $237 million to
resolve the warranty dispute, but accounted for $202 million of
that payment as an adjustment to the suppliers' pension costs
instead of an expense that would have reduced its profit, The
Free Press related.

Mr. Battenberg also described at the trial how Delphi's
relationship with GM deteriorated over time, The Free Press
noted.  "They started taking us off the bid list for new
business.  They disinvited us from trade shows," according to Mr.
Battenberg.  "Most importantly, we were losing revenue," Mr.
Battenberg told the jury.

The Free Press said other issues also drove the two companies
apart.  According to the report, Delphi created a $53 million
reserve to cover warranty claims that later increased to
$112 million.  But GM demanded more, the report stated.

Mr. Battenberg related that in July 2000, he called then GM CEO
Jack Smith to discuss "abnormal behavior" by GM's purchasing
unit, The Free Press noted.  Delphi eventually settled the
warranty dispute after a series of meetings between the
companies' executives to pay GM $237 million, the report related.

When asked by his counsel whether he know how much of that
payment actually went to dealers for warranty-related repairs,
Mr. Battenberg said, "They had spent very little."  Mr.
Battenberg continued, "Usually our experience had been that we
paid as we go, but this time, they wanted money upfront.  That
was different," the report added.

          Mr. Battenberg Doesn't Recall Lawyer's Warning

Mike Colias of Automotive News on December 2, 2010, related that
Mr. Battenberg said he does not remember receiving a voicemail
from the company's top lawyer in 2000.

Logan Robinson earlier testified that he left a voicemail warning
Mr. Battenberg against covering up details of the $237 million
payment that Delphi was about to make to GM, Automotive News
noted.

"I think I would have remembered," Mr. Battenberg said at the
trial, adding that he typically received as many as 200
voicemails a week at that time, Automotive News said.

The report noted that on his second day on the witness stand, Mr.
Battenberg reiterated that he has no role in deciding how to book
the $237 million payment and ultimately followed the advice of
lawyers that the accounting was sound.  When questioned by SEC
attorneys, Mr. Battenberg recognized that he knew that recording
most of the $237 million as pension-related expenses rather than
as warranty expenses "would be an advantage to Delphi,"
Automotive News stated.

Mr. Battenberg further acknowledged that the pension matter was
not brought up in any of his meetings with GM officials at that
time, Automotive News cited.  Instead, those discussions centered
on the warranty claims that GM was demanding, as well as Delphi's
gripes about declining business from GM, the report added.

Automotive News further relayed that Mr. Battenberg acknowledged
that he reviewed a document placing Delphi's exposure for
warranty claims at $240 million to $248 million.  Mr. Battenberg
testified that was the only dollar amount Delphi and GM agreed on
before reaching a settlement, even though the final agreement
said it resolved the pension issue too.

Jan Folena, Esq., counsel to the SEC, asked Mr. Battenberg about
his signing of a restatement of Delphi's 2000 financials in 2005
that said the $237 million payment should have been recorded as a
warranty payment, Automotive News noted.  Mr. Battenberg
responded that even though he thought it was right in 2000, he
relied on the advice of a new team of attorneys and financial
staffers in agreeing to restate it five years later, the report
pointed out.

"I took the advice of the experts and signed the restatement in
the best interest of the company," Mr. Battenberg was quoted by
Automotive News at the trial as saying.

                  Delphi's 2000 Outlook Probed

At the December 3 trial hearing, the SEC focused on Delphi's
outlook in September 2000, The Free Press stated in a separate
report.

Mr. Folena showed jurors a September 14, 2010 internal Delphi
document that the company expected to earn $112 million for that
quarter, according to The Free Press.  The same document noted
that Wall Street analysts expected a profit of $148 million.

Delphi subsequently reported a $148 million profit, despite the
settlement with GM that led to the $237 million payment,
according to a testimony in the trial, The Free Press noted.  The
report further relayed that Delphi restated that quarter's profit
four years later after the SEC began an investigation.

DELPHI CORP: Retirees' Health Care Access Extended to 2012
----------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. House of Representatives approved a measure that will
enable salaried retirees of Delphi Corp. to access health care
benefits until 2012, David Shepardson of Detroit News reported.

The extended Health Coverage Tax Credit pays 80% of health
premiums for Delphi retirees under the Pension Benefit Guaranty
Corp., Detroit News related.  Retirees over 55 years old
receiving pension benefits from the Pension Benefit Guaranty
Corp. are eligible to receive the HCTC, the report noted.

The measure expanded the credit to pay 80% of qualified health
plan premiums -- from 65% previously, Detroit News explained.

Without the Congress' action, the credit would have been reduced
to 65% on December 31, 2010, Detroit News noted.

The credit will help other older workers who are buying their own
health insurance, Mr. Shepardson noted.

According to the report, the measure is a part of an omnibus bill
to be decided on by the Senate.  U.S. Representative Dale Kildee
has actively pushed for the extension of the credit in the Lower
House, the report added.

In conjunction, the Delphi Salaried Retirees Association related
that the plans offered by the DSRA Voluntary Employee Beneficiary
Association Trust appear to continue to be qualified for the HCTC
in 2011 as a plan established after the bankruptcy of Delphi in
lieu of Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act.  The
Official Committee of Eligible Salaried Retirees intended the
VEBA to provide a benefit in lieu of COBRA consistent with prior
private letter rulings of the Internal Revenue Service.

In other news, U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown called on General
Motors Company to pay the pension fund for Delphi retirees,
according to a public statement dated December 3, 2010.  Mr.
Brown's statement comes as GM made a $4 billion contribution to
its hourly and salaried pension plans.

"As General Motors continues to reap financial benefits from its
restructuring and successful IPO, they must do their duty by the
Delphi retirees, and I will keep fighting to make sure that these
retirees get the benefits they have earned and deserve," Mr.
Brown said.

In May 2010, Emmis signed a definitive merger agreement which will
result in Emmis being taken private by JS Acquisition, LLC, a
company formed by Chairman and CEO, Jeffrey H. Smulyan.  The
financing for the transaction was to be provided by an affiliate
of Alden Global Capital, a private asset management company with
more than $3 billion under management.  The going private
transaction was to be effectuated through a cash tender offer for
Emmis' Class A Common Stock at $2.40 per Share, an exchange offer
of 12% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2017 for its Preferred Stock,
amendments to its Articles affecting the Preferred Stock and a
back-end merger.

On September 9, 2010, the offer was effectively terminated after
failing to obtain the required vote from Emmis' shareholders.

In May 2009, S&P raised its corporate credit rating on the Company
to 'CCC+'.  In June, S&P withdrew the 'CCC+' Corp. Credit Rating
at the Company's request.

FX LUXURY: 3rd Amended Reorganization Plan Declared Effective
-------------------------------------------------------------
FX Luxury Las Vegas I LLC's third amended plan of reorganization
has been declard effective as of December 15, 2010.

The Troubled Company Reporter on November 22, 2010, reported that
the Court confirmed the Debtor's Plan.  Pursuant to the Plan, FX
Real Estate and Entertainment Inc. will no longer have any
ownership interest in the Debtor or the Las Vegas property when
the Plan becomes effective.

Under the Plan, the reorganized Debtor will continue to own the
Las Vegas property, subject to a new first mortgage loan from the
existing first lien lenders, and the Debtor will be wholly-owned
by a newly organized limited liability company.  The second lien
lenders will own the equity of the Debtor's Parent in the
proportion they subscribe for their share of the Debtor's Parent's
new equity and make a capital contribution in the pro rata amount
of the Total Capital Contribution accordingly.  The new first
mortgage loan will secure two notes, a $188 million Class A note
with interest at the rate of 3.95% per annum, and a $71 million
Class B note with interest at the rate of 2% per annum.  All of
the interest payments on the Class B note amortize the principal
on a dollar-for-dollar basis.  Both notes mature in six years,
subject to three one-year extension rights under certain
circumstances.  The first lien lenders will also have a contingent
profits interest in the Debtor's Parent equal to 4% of profits
until the second lien lenders have received the amount of their
bankruptcy claim and 10% thereafter.

The second lien lenders are entitled under the Plan to subscribe
for 94% of the new equity in the Debtor's Parent by contributing
their pro rata share of the Total Capital Contribution and
agreeing to guarantee three months of interest payments.  They
also have contingent rights to subscribe for additional equity in
the Debtor's Parent, based on increased future valuation.  The
total capital contribution of approximately $1.75 million is to be
used for an interest reserve and an amount to reimburse the second
lien lenders and their counsel for costs and expenses incurred in
connection with the bankruptcy proceeding.  Each subscribing
second lien lender is also subject to its share of a potential
$5 million capital call if needed in connection with property
operations.

The Company's subsidiary FX Luxury, LLC, as the original equity
owner of the Debtor, was entitled under the Plan to subscribe for
up to 6% of the equity in the Debtor's Parent by contributing a
ratable share of the Total Capital Contribution.  While FX Luxury
approved the Plan, it did not subscribe for any equity in the
Debtor's Parent.  As a result of approving the Plan, the Company
is potentially entitled to the Class 6 Right, which would enable
it to purchase, within six years, up to 5% of the equity of the
Debtor's parent at the date of exercise, at a purchase price equal
to $450 million minus the first lien indebtedness, divided by the
number of equity units outstanding on the date of exercise.
Therefore, upon the effective date of the Plan, the Company will
no longer have any ownership interest in the Debtor or the Las
Vegas property.

All of the trade creditors and all administrative claims are to be
satisfied in the bankruptcy.

As part of the Plan, the Las Vegas Subsidiary and parties to the
bankruptcy will receive releases -- except for fraud and gross
misconduct -- when the Plan becomes effective.

GENERAL GROWTH: CK Mint Says It's Owed $9-Mil. Not $0
-----------------------------------------------------
CK Mint Hill, LLC, opposes the $0 proposed cure amount in
connection with the assumption of a nominee agreement and
development agreement with GGP-Mint Hill, LLC under the Debtor's
Third Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization.  Wayne H. Davis, Esq.,
at Tannenbaum Helpern Syracuse & Hirshtritt LLP, in New York --
davis@thsh.com -- tells the Court that the Debtor breached the
Development Agreement by ceasing improvements at a project known a
Bridges at Mint Hill.  In response to the Debtor's breach, CK
undertook loss mitigation efforts and performed certain parts of
the site improvement work at its own expense simply to preserve
the value of the Project and minimize the delay-related expenses,
he asserts.

CK Mint asks the Court to require the Debtor to:

  (i) perform the Site Improvement Work, or give adequate
      assurance that it will promptly perform the Site
      Improvement Work;

(ii) pay CK $9,115,960 or give adequate assurance that it will
      promptly pay those amounts to CK; and

(iii) give CK adequate assurance of its future performance under
      the Agreements, including a performance bond.

GENERAL GROWTH: New GGP CEO & President Said to Leave Post
----------------------------------------------------------
General Growth Properties, Inc., Chief Executive Officer Adam Metz
and President and Chief Operating Officer Thomas Nolan were to
step down from the company on December 22, 2010, according to
sources familiar with the matter, Reuters reported on December 17.

In October, GGP Inc. -- Old GGP -- named Sandeep Mathrani as the
reorganized company's chief executive officer.  According to an
October 28, 2010 public statement, Mr. Mathrani will assume the
CEO post at the beginning of 2011.

In September, GGP agreed to extend the term of Messrs. Metz and
Nolan for up to one year after the company's emergence from
bankruptcy.  Judge Allan S. Gropper of the U.S. Bankruptcy for the
Southern District of New York declared GGP's Third Amended Joint
Plan of Reorganization effective on November 9, 2010.

Under the September agreements, Messrs. Nolan and Metz will
continue to manage the final phases of the reorganized company's
restructuring.

In an interview with Mr. Mathrani by Jonathan O'Connell of The
Washington Post, the new CEO said there is a chance that New GGP
will tear the roof off some of its properties, particularly in
areas of density and population growth.  "Some of these malls will
get to the point where they can be de-malled," added Mr. Mathrani,
the report noted.

Judge Robert E. Grossman denied a request by Ramp Chevrolet, Inc.,
to hold General Motors LLC in contempt for willfully violating the

GM LLC, which purchased the assets and assumed certain of the
prior agreements of General Motors Corp. et al., in a Chapter 11
bankruptcy proceeding filed by Old GM, currently pending in the
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York, opposes
the Motion.  GM denies that it violated the automatic stay and
asserts that it owes Ramp Chevrolet roughly $279,000, not $975,459
pursuant to Wind-Down and other Deferred Termination Agreements
dated as of June 1, 2009, between the GM Debtors and certain of
their dealers, including Ramp Chevrolet, which were assigned from
Old GM to GM, and which Ramp Chevrolet assumed in its bankruptcy
case.  GM argues that because Ramp Chevrolet has assumed the
agreements cum onere, GM has the right under the agreements to fix
the amount that is due to Ramp Chevrolet.  Therefore GM has not
violated the automatic stay nor is it attempting to setoff any
prior obligation of Ramp Chevrolet but rather it is merely
exercising its rights under the agreements.  GM also argues that
no money is currently due and owing since it has the right to
withhold final payment until Ramp Chevrolet has complied with the
conditions precedent set forth in the agreements, conditions it
argues that remain unsatisfied.

Judge Grossman agreed with GM, holding that the WDAs are binding
agreements and Ramp Chevrolet is charged with accepting the
burdens and benefits therein.  Judge Grossman said GM has the
discretion to reduce the Termination Payment Amount under the
WDAs.  The reduction is not a setoff, and is enforceable as a
matter of law and equity.  To the extent Ramp Chevrolet and GM
cannot agree as to whether any of the charge backs are prohibited
as untimely under the Act, the Court will hold an evidentiary
hearing on February 22, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. to resolve this
dispute.

GREENBRIER COS: Clarifies Media Reports on Offering Proceeds
------------------------------------------------------------
In a free writing prospectus dated December 15, 2010, The
Greenbrier Company, Inc., commented on articles published on
December 13, 2010, by The Oregonian and the Daily Journal of
Commerce.

Greenbrier said the articles were not prepared or reviewed by it
in advance of their publication.  With the exception of quotations
directly attributed to Mark Rittenbaum, Greenbrier's chief
financial officer, or information directly extracted from
Greenbrier's press releases or filings with the Securities and
Exchange Commission, the articles constitute the authors' or
others' opinions, which are not endorsed or adopted by Greenbrier.

According to the Company, statements in the articles should be
considered only after carefully reviewing the uncertainties, risks
and other factors set forth under the headings "Risk Factors" and
"Forward Looking Statements" in Greenbrier's Annual Report on Form
10-K for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2010, as well as other
information contained in other reports and documents filed by
Greenbrier with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

With respect to statements regarding the anticipated use of
proceeds from its at-the-market underwritten offering of 3,000,000
shares of its common stock, Greenbrier said no determination with
respect to the use of proceeds has been made and that it intends
to use the net proceeds from the Offering for general corporate
purposes.

With respect to statements regarding Greenbrier's future financing
and liquidity requirements, Greenbrier's debt, and Greenbrier's
intentions or need to pursue future financings, Greenbrier
reiterated that, including following the completion of the
Offering, Greenbrier will have a high level of indebtedness, a
portion of which has variable interest rates.  Greenbrier's level
of indebtedness, and the terms of its indebtedness could adversely
affect its business, financial condition and liquidity.  Although
Greenbrier intends to refinance its debt on or before maturity,
there can be no assurance that it will be successful, or if
refinanced, that it will be at favorable rates and terms.  If
Greenbrier is unable to successfully refinance its debt,
Greenbrier could have inadequate liquidity to fund its ongoing
cash needs.

Additionally, Greenbrier said it may raise additional capital,
which could have a dilutive effect on existing holders of
Greenbrier's common stock and adversely affect the market price of
its common stock.  Except for a typical lock-up agreement with the
underwriter for the Offering, Greenbrier is not restricted from
issuing additional shares of its common stock or securities that
are convertible into or exchangeable for, or that represent the
right to receive, Greenbrier's common stock.  Greenbrier evaluates
opportunities to access the capital markets taking into account
its financial condition and other relevant considerations.
Subject to market conditions, Greenbrier may take further actions
to raise capital.  Such actions could include, among other things,
the issuance of additional shares of Greenbrier's common stock.

With respect to statements regarding Greenbrier's backlog, railcar
orders and customers, Greenbrier noted that its backlog is not
necessarily indicative of the level of its future revenues.
Greenbrier's manufacturing backlog represents future production
for which Greenbrier has written orders from Greenbrier's
customers in various periods, and estimated potential revenue
attributable to those orders. Some of this backlog is subject to
Greenbrier's fulfillment of certain competitive conditions.

Greenbrier's railcar deliveries, which are the primary source of
Greenbrier's manufacturing revenue, were approximately 2,500 units
in the fiscal year ended August 31, 2010.  Greenbrier derives a
significant amount of its revenue from a limited number of
customers, the loss of or reduction of business from one or more
of which could have an adverse effect on Greenbrier's business. A
significant portion of Greenbrier's revenue and backlog is
generated from a few major customers.  Greenbrier cannot be
assured that its customers will continue to use Greenbrier's
products or services or that they will continue to do so at
historical levels.  A reduction in the purchase or leasing of
Greenbrier's products or a termination of its services by one or
more of Greenbrier's major customers could have an adverse effect
on Greenbrier's business and operating results.

With respect to statements regarding future financial results,
profitability, demand and relative market share and ability to
anticipate the market for Greenbrier's products and services,
Greenbrier notes that it faces aggressive competition by a
concentrated group of competitors in all geographic markets and in
each industry sector in which it operates and that a number of
factors may influence its performance.

                       About Greenbrier Cos.

payable, and stockholders' equity of $297.40 million

                           *     *     *

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on August 19, 2010,
Moody's Investors Service raised its Speculative Grade Liquidity
Rating for The Greenbrier Companies to SGL-3 from SGL-4.  At the
same time, Moody's affirmed the company's existing ratings,
including the corporate family rating of Caa1.  Greenbrier's
rating outlook is negative in consideration of the continued
sluggish demand for new railcars and the company's need to address
certain refinancing needs.


GSC GROUP: Hearing on Black Diamond Sale Continued
--------------------------------------------------
American Bankruptcy Institute reports that Manhattan Bankruptcy
Judge Arthur Gonzalez has again continued a hearing to consider
approving the $235 million sale of GSC Group Inc.'s assets to
hedge fund Black Diamond Capital Management LLC.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Dec. 16, 2010,
GSC Group delayed its proposed sale to Black Diamond amid
negotiations with the other lenders that oppose the deal.

The TCR reported on Dec. 3, 2010, that several investors in funds
managed by GSC are objecting to the sale to Black Diamond, noting
that GSC's business provides personal services which can't be sold
or assigned in bankruptcy without consent from parties receiving
the services.

Black Diamond and its affiliate Black Diamond Commercial Finance,
LLC, as agent for a lender group, emerged -- following a three-day
auction -- as winning bidder for substantially all of the
investment management business and related assets of GSC Group.

The assets to be sold consist primarily of the assets owned, held,
or used in the Debtors' investment management business, including
debt and equity interests in partnerships, limited liability
companies and investment vehicles to which the Debtors provide
investment management services or serve as general partner,
limited partner, member or in a similar capacity.

about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern,

HARRISBURG, PA: City Council to Vote on Revised Budget Dec. 29
--------------------------------------------------------------
Romy Varghese, writing for Dow Jones Newswires, reported last week
the 2011 budget for Harrisburg remains a matter of debate days
before it must be approved, as several City Council members push
for deeper expenditure cuts.  Dow Jones reported that at a budget
committee meeting Tuesday, several council members advocated 10%
cuts for every department in the $57 million spending plan
proposed by Mayor Linda Thompson.  According to Dow Jones, the
council members prefer the reductions over the city selling land
under parking garages to the Harrisburg Parking Authority to fill
a $4.3 million hole.

Dow Jones said Mayor Thompson's administration is opposed to
making further cuts to the budget, which is $8 million less than
the 2010 one, and other council members raised concerns that city
operations would be adversely affected.

According to Dow Jones, another budget meeting is scheduled for
December 29.  The City Council will vote on the budget on
December 30.

Dow Jones noted the city must pass a balanced budget by year-end.
If Mayor Thompson vetoes a budget approved by the council, the
2010 budget would be in place for next year.

According to Dow Jones, Mayor Thompson's original 2011 budget
released last month mistakenly failed to fully fund the city's
general obligation debt for 2011.  After the City Council
discovered the error, the administration proposed selling six
parcels of land the city owns that are located under three parking
structures to the Harrisburg Parking Authority.  Proceeds in
excess of covering debt service would go toward avoiding a fire
station closure planned in the budget.

The Troubled Company Reporter on December 17, 2010, reported that
the state of Pennsylvania accepted Harrisburg into Act 47, the
state's oversight program for distressed cities.  The approval of
Harrisburg's to the program was a widely anticipated decision as
the capital city struggles with its fiscal problems, Dow Jones'
Small Cap had reported.

Act 47 aims to stabilize municipalities under severe financial
strain and set them on a path for sustainable fiscal health.  The
program provides cities with a state-appointed coordinator who
drafts a recovery plan, and the cities are eligible for other
revenue sources unavailable to other local governments, such as a
commuter tax.

The state Department of Community and Economic Development is
appoints a coordinator who has 90 days to develop a recovery plan
for consideration by the mayor and city council, according to Bill
Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News.

"This is an important first step on the city's road to fiscal
recovery," Mayor Linda Thompson said in a written statement
obtained by Dow Jones.  "There will be difficult choices to be
made by the city's leaders as we craft a comprehensive long-term
recovery plan. But we have an opportunity to become the model for
comeback cities, and it is my intention to seize that
opportunity," she added.

                       About Harrisburg, PA

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

The City Council of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, voted 5-2 on
September 28 to seek professional advice on bankruptcy or state
oversight.  Harrisburg needed state aid to avoid default on
$3.3 million of bond payments this month.

The city has missed about $8 million in debt-service payments this
year on bonds issued in connection with a trash-to-energy
incinerator.  The city owes another $40 million by the end of the
year, and was sued by its home county Dauphin County; bond insurer
Assured Guaranty Municipal Corp., a unit of Assured Guaranty Ltd.;
and bond trustees TD Bank and M&T Bank Corp. over $19 million in
skipped bond payments.

In November 2010, the city council tapped Cravath, Swaine and
Moore LLP as debt restructuring advisors.  Cravath is working on
"pro bono" basis.

HIT OR MISS: Kombassan, as Alter Ego, Is Liable for UNITE Plan
--------------------------------------------------------------
Kombassan Holding A.S. appeals from a judgment of the United
States District Court for the Southern District of New York
(Rakoff, J.) holding it liable to the Retirement Plan of the UNITE
HERE National Retirement Fund and its trustees for withdrawal
liability incurred by Hit or Miss pursuant to sections 502(a)(3)
and 4301(a) of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of
1974, codified at, 29 U.S.C. Secs. 1132(a)(3), 1451(a), in the
amount of $668,929 plus prejudgment interest of $407,431, for a
total of $1,076,360.

Although Kombassan assigned its HOM shares to four Turkish
corporations to avoid a Turkish law limiting overseas investments,
because it continued to exercise complete control over HOM, the
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit holds that Kombassan
was an alter ego of HOM and is, therefore, responsible for its
withdrawal liability.  Accordingly, a three-judge panel consisting
of Chief Judge Dennis G. Jacobs, and Circuit Judges Amalya L.
Kearse and Peter W. Hall affirm the district court's judgment.

A copy of the Second Circuit's December 21, 2010 decision, written
by Judge Hall, is available at http://is.gd/jhJ08from Leagle.com.

Hit or Miss Inc., of Stoughton, Mass., one of the nation's best-
known women's apparel retailers, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy
on Nov. 17, 2000, before the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of New Jersey.


HOVNANIAN ENT: Incurs $132MM After Tax Net Loss for Oct. 31 Qtr
---------------------------------------------------------------
Hovnanian Enterprises reported results for its fourth quarter and
fiscal year ended October 31, 2010.

For the fourth quarter ended October 31, 2010, the after-tax net
loss was $132.1 million compared with a net loss of $250.8 million
in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009.  The after-tax net income
for fiscal 2010 was $2.6 million compared with a net loss of
$716.7 million, or $9.16 per common share, in the prior year.  As
a result of tax legislation changes, the after-tax net income for
fiscal 2010 included a federal income tax benefit of
$291.3 million.

Total revenues were $353.0 million for the fourth quarter of
fiscal 2010 compared with $437.4 million in the same quarter a
year ago.  For fiscal 2010, total revenues were $1.4 billion
compared with $1.6 billion in the prior year.

The Company's balance sheet at Oct. 31, 2010, showed $1.82 billion
in total assets, $2.15 billion in total liabilities, and a
stockholder's deficit of $337.94 million.

"In spite of strong long-term demographics, the current housing
market remains quite challenging.  The combination of a lackluster
job market and high foreclosure activity is clearly having a
dampening effect on the housing market.  The only silver lining is
that we continue to find land acquisition opportunities which we
believe will yield appropriate returns at today's home prices and
sales paces," commented Ara K. Hovnanian, Chairman of the Board,
President and Chief Executive Officer.  "Even without a general
housing recovery, we are optimistic that as the percentage of
deliveries from newly identified communities increases, our
overall performance should continue to improve."

JOE T WASHBURN: Kansas Court Allows IRS's Claim
-----------------------------------------------
Joe T. Washburn, v. Internal Revenue Service, Case No. No.
10-5068 (Bankr. D. Kansas), seeks a determination that the United
States, acting through the Internal Revenue Service, has been paid
in full on its claim filed in Mr. Washburn's bankruptcy case and
that further collection by the IRS is enjoined by the debtor's
discharge entered in his bankruptcy case.

Mr. Washburn owned Wascot, Inc., a corporation that filed for
chapter 11 relief (Bankr. D. Kansas Case No. 03-16209) in 2003.
Following the sale of Wascot's assets, Mr. Washburn filed his own
Chapter 11 case (Bankr. D. Kansas Case No. 03-16208) November 12,
2003.

The IRS asserted claims against Mr. Washburn on Trust Fund
Recovery Penalties for withholding taxes not paid or reported by
Wascot.  Mr. Washburn's bankruptcy case converted to a chapter 7
liquidation on December 23, 2005, and a trustee was appointed for
the bankruptcy estate.

The IRS filed a timely proof of claim asserting an unsecured
priority claim of $177,000 for taxes or penalties owed to a
governmental unit under 11 U.S.C. Sec. 507(a)(8).  The claim
sought $0-in interest.  This claim was amended in March 2005 and
allowed for $177,373.47 for TFRPs.  All of the TFRPs under I.R.C.
Sec. 6672 were assessed by the IRS on August 2, 2004 and interest
began to run on that date.  At no time did the IRS file a claim
for interest on the TFRP.  The Debtor received a discharge on
August 4, 2006.

Bankruptcy Judge Robert E. Nugent rules that the postpetition
interest that accrued on the TFRP arose out of a non-dischargeable
debt and is therefore itself not dischargeable.  Even had the IRS
filed a proof of claim for the unmatured interest, that claim
would have been disallowed by Sec. 502(b)(2).

"While the circumstances of Washburn's case are unfortunate, this
Court has no power to override statutory provisions or settled
authority in this Circuit to effectuate debtor's requested remedy.
Judgment must therefore be entered for the United States denying
plaintiff's complaint, each party to bear its own costs," Judge
Nugent says.

Atlanta, Georgia-based LTAP US, LLLP, fka Life Trust Asset Pool
US, LLLP, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on
December 22, 2010 (Bankr. D. Del. Case No. 10-14125).  The Debtor
estimated its assets and debts at $100 million to $500 million.


LTAP US: Seeks to Use Wells Fargo Cash Collateral
-------------------------------------------------
LTAP US, LLLP, asks for authorization from the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the District of Delaware to use the cash collateral
securing their obligation to their prepetition lenders until March
2011.

The Debtor entered into a loan and security agreement, dated
June 30, 2008, with Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., and other lenders and
Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, as administrative agent.  The
Agreement provides for a secured variable loan pursuant to which
the Debtor issued to the Prepetition Lenders a variable funding
note in the principal amount of up to $224 million.  The Agent
alleged that the total amount of outstanding obligations under the
Agreement is approximately $222.5 million, exclusive of accrued
and accruing interest, fees, costs and expenses.

As of the Petition Date, the Debtor has approximately $7.6 million
in unsecured debt consisting primarily of accrued expenses and
trade payables.

Adam G. Landis, Esq., at Landis Rath & Cobb LLP, explains that the
Debtor needs the money to fund its Chapter 11 case, pay suppliers
and other parties.  The Debtor will use the collateral pursuant to
a budget, a copy of which is available for free at:

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

The Debtor doesn't anticipate using any cash collateral until it
is required to pay premiums on January 9, 2011.  The Debtor was
formed and exists to own and acquire previously issued life
insurance policies in the life settlement market.  The Debtor must
maintain the policies by paying premiums as and when they come
due.

The Debtor's budget reflects that it may run out of cash by
January 2.  The Debtor may realize a death benefit or succeed in
obtaining debtor-in-possession financing before it is required to
pay premiums.  Absent the use of cash collateral to facilitate the
payment of and pay premiums, policies will lapse, destroying the
value of the collateral.  The Debtor says that there is only a
minimal diminution in value expected, if any, from the Debtor's
use of cash collateral.  Every dollar of cash collateral that the
Debtor is authorized to use will immediately and demonstrably will
preserve the value of the collateral, to the direct benefit of the
prepetition lenders and the Debtor.

In exchange for the Debtor's use of cash collateral, the Agent
will be granted a security interest in and lien on all assets of
the Debtor.  The Debtor will also grant the Agent an allowed
administrative claim with priority over all other administrative
claims in the Debtor's bankruptcy case.

MAJESTIC STAR: Court OKs Conversion of MSC II from Corp. to LLC
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Kevin Gross of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District
of Delaware authorized The Majestic Star Casino, LLC, to convert
The Majestic Star Casino II, Inc. from a corporation to a limited
liability company, subject to regulatory approval of the Indiana
Gaming Commission.  The conversion of MSC II from a corporation
must not impair or have any impact on any existing pledge of
equity interests in MSC II provided to Wells Fargo Foothill, Inc.
under the Debtors' $80 million senior secured credit facility or
to the Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., as indenture
trustee under the indenture pursuant to which the Debtors' 9-1/2%
senior secured notes due 2010 were issued.

The Majestic Star Casino, LLC -- aka Majestic Star Casino, aka
Majestic Star -- is based in Las Vegas, Nev., and is a wholly
owned subsidiary of Majestic Holdco, LLC, which is a wholly owned
subsidiary of Barden Development, Inc.  The Company was formed on
December 8, 1993, as an Indiana limited liability company to
provide gaming and related entertainment to the public.  The
Company commenced gaming operations in the City of Gary at
Buffington Harbor, located in Lake County, Inc., on June 7, 1996.
The Company is a multi-jurisdictional gaming company with
operations in three states -- Indiana, Mississippi and Colorado.

The Company sought Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (Bankr. D.
Del. Case No. 09-14136) on November 23, 2009.

The Company's affiliates -- The Majestic Star Casino II, Inc., The

MARVIN RICHER: Cannot Use Home State Bank Cash Collateral
---------------------------------------------------------
As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on October 7, 2010,
Marvin H. Richer and Gail L. Richer asked the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Northern District of Illinois for permission to use
Home State Bank's cash collateral to fund their Chapter 11 case
and pay suppliers and other parties.

The cash collateral is derived from the rents payable by
Friendship House and Brilliance Honda on the property owned by the
Debtors located at 100 S. Main St., Crystal Lake, in Illinois,
totaling $25,894 monthly.

Home State Bank, the Debtor's largest creditor, filed a proof of
claim for $7,696,280.88.  The debt to Home State Bank is secured
by a first mortgage lien on the property and an assignment of
Rents against the Property.

The Bankruptcy Court held that there is an insufficient equity
cushion in the property to adequately protect Home State Bank's
debt and that there is a substantial monthly shortfall in income
over total expenses.  Hence, the Bankruptcy Court denied the
Debtors' motion for use of cash collateral.

The bank supported its opposition to the Debtor's motion with the
testimony of Paul Conn of Valuation Group, Inc., who testified
that using the sales comparison approach, the property had only an
appraised value of $7.8 million, and that had he had access to the
financial information on Property expenses at the time he
performed his appraisal, it would have resulted in an "ever lower
value" of the subject property.

Crystal Lake, Illinois-based Marvin H. Richer and Gail L. Richer
filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on September 27, 2010
(Bankr. N.D. Ill. Case No. 10-74803).  Bradley T. Koch, Esq., at
Holmstrom & Kennedy P.C., assists the Debtors in their
restructuring efforts.  The Debtors estimated their assets and
debts at $10 million to $50 million.


MAUCTRST LLC: Fails in Bid to Dismiss Homeowners' 2003 Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------
District Judge Oliver W. Wanger denied a bid to dismiss the
lawsuit captioned as Richard Sinclair, et al., v. Fox Hollow of
Turlock Owners Association, et al., Case No. 03-cv-05439 (E.D.
Calif.).

The case is a consolidation of three actions: An action commenced
by Plaintiff Fox Hollow of Turlock Homeowners' Association against
Richard Sinclair, Brandon Sinclair, Gregory Mauchley, Lairtrust,
LLC, Capstone, LLC, Mauctrst, LLC, and Stanley Flake as Trustee of
Capstone Trust, Case No. 03-cv-5439; an action commenced by
California Equity Management Group, Inc., against Mauctrst LLC,
Gregory Mauchley, Diana Mauchley, Lairtrust LLC, Richard Sinclair,
Deborah Sinclair, Sinclair Enterprises, Inc., Capstone, LLC,
Brandon Sinclair, Stanley Flake, and Stanley Flake as Trustee of
the F. Hanse Trust and of the Julie Insurance Trust Case No. 03-
cv-5774; and an action commenced by Lairtrust LLC, Mauctrst LLC,
and Capstone LLC against Fox Hollow, Andrew Katakis, and
California Equity Management Group, Inc. in the Stanislaus County
Superior Court, Case No. 322675, removed to the Eastern District
of California Court and consolidated with the Fox Hollow and CEMG
Actions by Order filed on October 6, 2003.

Mauctrst et al. sought dismissal of the Consolidated Complaint.

The action arises out of an alleged fraudulent scheme concerning a
35-unit town home complex in Turlock, California, known as Fox
Hollow of Turlock. Plaintiff Fox Hollow is the home owners'
association for the Property.  Plaintiff CEMG is the record owner
of lots contained within the Property, the successor in interest
to lenders who extended loans secured by lots within the Property,
and the assignee of the rights of certain tenants who entered into
leases for units contained in the Property.  Mauctrst, Lairtrust,
and Capstone are limited liability companies that were allegedly
used to convert HOA funds, effect property transfers, obtain
loans, prosecute dilatory lawsuits, and to carry out other parts
of the alleged schemes that form the basis for the Racketeer
Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act claims advanced in the
Consolidated Complaint.

Gregory Mauchley and Mauctrst acquired the Property in 1998 as a
multifamily housing project.  Although the proposed subdivision
was never completed, the defendants conspired to borrow funds
secured by individual lots within the Property from lenders such
as GMAC Mortgage, Bank One, Advanta Mortgage, ContiMortgage, and
HFC.  Gregory Mauchley and Mauctrst encountered difficulty in
making payments on loans secured by the Property, and in August
2000, financial instructions began to initiate foreclosures on the
real property collateral.

Mauctrst, LLC, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on
July 1, 1999.

After an unsuccessful attempt at reorganization, Mauctrst sought
to transfer the Property to Gregory Mauchley.  Richard Sinclair,
as attorney for Mauctrst and Gregory Mauchley, filed numerous
lawsuits against lenders to delay or reverse foreclosure sales in
June, July, and August 2000.

--------------------------------------------------------------
NeoMedia Technologies Inc., on December 15, 2010, entered into an
agreement to issue and sell a secured convertible debenture to YA

purchase 1,250,000 shares of the Company's common stock, par value
$0.001 per share, for an exercise price of $0.10 per share.

The Debenture will mature on July 29, 2012, and accrue interest at
a rate equal to 14% per annum.  The interest will be paid on the
Maturity Date in cash or, provided that certain Equity Conditions
are satisfied, in shares of Common Stock at the applicable
Conversion Price.  At any time, the Buyer will be entitled to
convert any portion of the outstanding and unpaid principal and
accrued interest into fully paid and non-assessable shares of
Common Stock at a price equal to the lesser of $0.10 and 95% of
the lowest volume weighted average price of the Common Stock
during the 60 trading days immediately preceding each conversion
date.

The Debenture is secured by certain pledges made with respect to
the assets of the Company and its subsidiaries as set forth in the
Fifth Ratification Agreement dated December 15, 2010, and that
certain Security Agreement and Patent Security Agreement both
dated July 29, 2008, by and among the Company, each of the
Company's subsidiaries made a party thereto, and the Buyer.

In connection with the Agreement, the Company also entered into
those Irrevocable Transfer Agent Instructions with the Buyer dated
December 15, 2010, an escrow agent and WorldWide Stock Transfer,
LLC, the Company's transfer agent.

The Company will not affect any conversion, and the Buyer will not
have the right to convert any portion of the Debenture to the
extent that after giving effect to such conversion, the Buyer
would beneficially own in excess of 9.99% of the number of shares
of Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to
such conversion, except for not less than 65 days prior written
notice from the Buyer.

The Company will have the right to redeem a portion or all amounts
outstanding in the Debenture via Optional Redemption by paying the
amount equal to the principal amount being redeemed plus a
redemption premium equal to 10% of the principal amount being
redeemed, and accrued interest.

OXIGENE INC: Gets Delisting Notice From Nasdaq Stock Market
-----------------------------------------------------------
OXiGENE Inc. on December 15, 2010, received a delisting
determination letter from the staff of the Nasdaq Stock Market,
due to the Company's failure to regain compliance with the Nasdaq
Global Market's minimum bid price requirement for continued
listing, set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) and the
Nasdaq Global Market's market value of listed securities
requirement for continued listing, set forth in Nasdaq Listing
Rule 5450(b)(2)(A).  Unless an appeal is filed, the Company's
securities will be delisted from the Nasdaq Global Market and the
trading of the Company's common stock will be suspended at the
opening of business on December 27, 2010, and a Form 25-NSE will
be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which will
remove the Company's securities from listing and registration on
The Nasdaq Stock Market.

The Company expects to appeal the Nasdaq Staff's determination
within seven calendar days of receipt of the letter.  Failure to
request a hearing by 4:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) on December 22,
2010, would result in the suspension of trading and delisting of
the Company's common stock under the terms of the delisting
determination letter.

The delisting determination letter states that if the Company
requests an appeal, the Company will be asked to provide a Hearing
Panel with a plan to regain compliance.  The Company's plan would
include a discussion of the events that the Company believes will
enable it to timely regain compliance and a commitment to effect a
reverse stock split, if necessary.  On November 1, 2010, the
Company's Board of Directors authorized a special meeting of the
Company's stockholders to consider and vote upon a reverse stock
split proposal in anticipation of the receipt of a delisting
determination from Nasdaq.  On November 12, 2010, the Company
filed with the SEC its definitive proxy statement, including the
proposal seeking shareholder approval of a reverse stock split, in
connection with the special meeting of the stockholders scheduled
for December 21, 2010.  The outcome of this special meeting is
pending announcement.

If the Company appeals the delisting determination, the appeal
will stay the suspension of the Company's securities and the
filing of the Form 25-NSE until a hearing process concludes and
the Hearing Panel has issued a written decision.  There can be no
assurance that the Hearing Panel will grant the Company's request
for continued listing in this written decision.

PHILLIP KEITH: Held in Contempt of Court
----------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Ralph B. Kirscher finds Phillip Dennis Keith in
contempt of court for his failure to comply with the Court's
Orders of October 7, 2010, October 12, 2010, and November 16,
2010, at the behest of the United States Trustee.   Mr. Keith has
failed to turn over requested documents and has not appear at the
last two meeting of creditors.

Counsel for the U.S. Trustee explained that the Chapter 7 Trustees
in Mr. Keith's case and five companion cases are struggling to
effectively administer the bankruptcies because of the state of
the Debtors' schedules.

The Court reserves the right to impose compensatory damages, costs
and attorney's fees against Mr. Keith for his contempt of the
Court.  The Court also reserves ruling on the U.S. Trustee's
request for daily sanctions against Debtor.

A copy of the Court's December 21, 2010 Memorandum of Decision is
available at http://is.gd/jhbnEfrom Leagle.com.

Phillip Dennis Keith, based in Billings, Montana, owns real
property and businesses.  He filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy
protection (Bankr. D. Mont. Case No. 10-61722) on July 16, 2010.
Allen Beck, Esq., in Lewistown, Montana, served as his bankruptcy
counsel.  He estimated $1 million and $10 million in assets and
debts.

Mr. Keith also placed his five companies in bankruptcy:

The Court converted Mr. Keith's case to Chapter 7 on September 29,
2010.


PHOENIX FOOTWEAR: Seeks to Halt SEC Reporting Through Stock Split
-----------------------------------------------------------------
A Special Meeting of Stockholders of Phoenix Footwear Group, Inc.,
will be held at Company headquarters, 5840 El Camino Real, Suite
106, in Carlsbad, California, on January 28, 2011, at 9:00 a.m.
local time, to consider and vote on a proposal to amend the
Company's Certificate of Incorporation to change the number of
issued and outstanding shares of common stock, par value $0.01 per
share, of the Company by effecting a 1-for-200 reverse stock
split, immediately followed by a 200-for-1 forward stock split of
the Shares.

The primary effect of the Stock Split will be to reduce the
Company's total number of record holders below 300 persons by
fully cashing out any shareholders with fewer than 200 Shares.
This will allow the Company to suspend its reporting obligations
arising in connection with its common stock under Section 15(d) of
the Exchange Act.  In addition, because the Company has a number
of small lot and odd lot shareholders, the Company may, from time
to time, enter into separate, privately negotiated, transactions
with various small lot or odd lot shareholders to purchase such
small lot or odd lot shares.

In conjunction with the Stock Split, those stockholders of record
who will hold fewer than 200 shares before the Reverse Stock Split
will receive a cash payment of $0.75 per pre-Reverse Stock Split
share in lieu of receiving a fractional post-Reverse Stock Split
share, and the holdings of all other stockholders -- i.e., those
holding 200 or more prior to the Reverse Stock Split -- will
remain unchanged.

The Board of Directors unanimously approved the proposal and
recommends voting "for" the proposal.

PILGRIM'S PRIDE: 5th Cir. Affirms Dismissal of Clinton Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------
The United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit affirmed
a district court decision that threw out a lawsuit by the city of
Clinton, Arkansas, against Pilgrim's Pride Corporation.

A three-judge panel consisting of Circuit Judges Carolyn King,
William Garwood, and W. Eugene Davis, held that the district court
did not err in denying the City's motion for leave to file an
amended complaint or in dismissing the City's petition for failure
to state a claim.

A copy of the Fifth Circuit's December 21, 2010 decision is
available at http://is.gd/jhHxLfrom Leagle.com.

The city sued Pilgrim's Pride in Bankruptcy Court on June 1, 2009,
alleging that Pilgrim's violated the Packers and Stockyards Act by
closing a facility for growing and processing poultry in the city
"for the purpose" and with the "effect" of manipulating the price
of commodity chicken, and further alleging fraud, fraudulent non-
disclosure, and promissory estoppel.  The District Court for the
Northern District of Texas, Fort Worth Division, withdrew the case
from the Bankruptcy Court on August 18, 2009.  The city filed a
motion for leave to amend, and attached a proposed First Amended
Complaint that sought to plead the fraud and promissory estoppel
claims with sufficient specificity and to add claims for
violations of the Arkansas Deceptive Trade Practices Act and
unjust enrichment.  The district court denied leave to amend on
the basis that amending the complaint would be futile, and
dismissed the civil action with prejudice.

RAMP CHEVROLET: Court Says GM Did Not Violate Automatic Stay
------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Robert E. Grossman denied a request by Ramp Chevrolet, Inc.,
to hold General Motors LLC in contempt for willfully violating the
automatic stay by asserting improper setoffs without Bankruptcy
Court approval, and compelling GM to remit $975,459 to the Debtor.
Ramp Chevrolet asserts that this amount is currently due and owing
pursuant to agreements between the parties.  Ramp Chevrolet also
seeks to hold GM in contempt for filing a secured proof of claim
in Ramp Chevrolet's case in violation of the automatic stay and to
reclassify and reduce the secured claim filed by GM from $699,096
to an unsecured claim for $406,571.

GM LLC, which purchased the assets and assumed certain of the
prior agreements of General Motors Corp. et al., in a Chapter 11
bankruptcy proceeding filed by Old GM, currently pending in the
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York, opposes
the Motion.  GM denies that it violated the automatic stay and
asserts that it owes Ramp Chevrolet roughly $279,000, not $975,459
pursuant to Wind-Down and other Deferred Termination Agreements
dated as of June 1, 2009, between the GM Debtors and certain of
their dealers, including Ramp Chevrolet, which were assigned from
Old GM to GM, and which Ramp Chevrolet assumed in its bankruptcy
case.  GM argues that because Ramp Chevrolet has assumed the
agreements cum onere, GM has the right under the agreements to fix
the amount that is due to Ramp Chevrolet.  Therefore GM has not
violated the automatic stay nor is it attempting to setoff any
prior obligation of Ramp Chevrolet but rather it is merely
exercising its rights under the agreements.  GM also argues that
no money is currently due and owing since it has the right to
withhold final payment until Ramp Chevrolet has complied with the
conditions precedent set forth in the agreements, conditions it
argues that remain unsatisfied.

Judge Grossman agreed with GM, holding that the WDAs are binding
agreements and Ramp Chevrolet is charged with accepting the
burdens and benefits therein.  Judge Grossman said GM has the
discretion to reduce the Termination Payment Amount under the
WDAs.  The reduction is not a setoff, and is enforceable as a
matter of law and equity.  To the extent Ramp Chevrolet and GM
cannot agree as to whether any of the charge backs are prohibited
as untimely under the Act, the Court will hold an evidentiary
hearing on February 22, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. to resolve this
dispute.

SCOTT ROTHSTEIN: Federal Watchdog Opposes $10MM Settlement
----------------------------------------------------------
A federal bankruptcy watchdog opposing a proposed $10 million
settlement between the law firm of Ponzi-scheme operator Scott
Rothstein and a tax-accounting firm said the official liquidating
the law firm does not have the right to bar lawsuits against the
accountant, Dow Jones' Small Cap reports.

DBR Small Cap said December 10, 2010, that investors who lost
$160 million in Mr. Rothstein's Ponzi scheme have dropped their
objection to a $10 million settlement with the former lawyer's
tax-accounting firm under a deal that awards them half of the
settlement proceeds.  The deal struck between Razorback Funding
LLC and Chapter 11 trustee Herbert Stettin, who is liquidating
Rothstein Rosenfeldt, resolves their competing claims to the $10
million insurance policy of tax-accounting firm Berenfeld Spritzer
Shechter & Sheer LLP.  In separate lawsuits, Razorback and Mr.
Stettin both claimed the insurance proceeds as damages for
Berenfeld's alleged decision to look the other way as Rothstein
carried out the $1.2 billion Ponzi scheme that landed the former
Florida attorney behind bars.  The fraud victims said they relied
upon Berenfeld's auditing reports to make their investments.

                     About Rothstein Rosenfeldt

Scott Rothstein, co-founder of law firm Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler
PA -- http://www.rra-law.com/-- has been suspected of running a
$1.2 billion Ponzi scheme.  U.S. authorities claimed in a civil
forfeiture lawsuit filed November 9, 2009, that Mr. Rothstein, the
firm's former chief executive officer, sold investments in non-
existent legal settlements.  Mr. Rothstein pleaded guilty to five
counts of conspiracy and wire fraud on January 27, 2010.

Creditors of Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler signed a petition sending
the Florida law firm to bankruptcy (Bankr. S.D. Fla. Case No.
09-34791).  The petitioners include Bonnie Barnett, who says she
lost $500,000 in legal settlement investments; Aran Development,
Inc., which said it lost $345,000 in investments; and trade
creditor Universal Legal, identified as a recruitment firm, which
said it is owed $7,800.  The creditors alleged being owed money
invested in lawsuit settlements.

Herbert M. Stettin, the state-court appointed receiver for
Rothstein Rosenfeldt, was officially carried over as the Chapter
11 trustee in the involuntary bankruptcy case.

On June 10, 2010, Mr. Rothstein was sentenced to 50 years in
prison.

SEXY HAIR: Files for Bankruptcy After Lender Talks Fail
-------------------------------------------------------
Sexy Hair Concepts LLC and two affiliates -- Ecoly International,
Inc. and Luxe Beauty Midco Corporation -- filed for Chapter 11
bankruptcy protection before the Bankruptcy Court for the Central
District of California on December 21, 2010, listing $78 million
in assets and more than $91 million in liabilities.

NetDockets reports that the liabilities include roughly $62.5
million in obligations under a senior secured credit facility
entered into in connection with a 2008 private sale transaction
led by Thoma Bravo, LLC.  The companies also have roughly $25
million in obligations owing to Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance
Company for subordinated unsecured notes issued in April 2008, the
report notes.

NetDockets says that sexy Hair has been in default of the senior
secured credit facility since December 2008 and began missing
payments on the credit agreement in June 2009.  Prior to the
bankruptcy filing, Sexy Hair attempted to resolve its financial
difficulties by negotiating a sale and located a potential
purchaser through a marketing process organized by Imperial
Capital, LLC, the report relates.  However, the companies were
ultimately unable to complete the sale outside of bankruptcy and
are now seeking to achieve a similar result through a pre-arranged
plan of reorganization supported by the credit facility agent
(Bank of Montreal) and some of the secured lenders.

Under the proposed plan, the potential purchaser will instead act
as a plan sponsor and Sexy Hair's existing lenders will receive a
pay-down on their debt and take $35 million of restructured debt,
netDockets adds.

Headquartered in Chatsworth, California, Sexy Hair Concepts, LLC
and two affiliates -- Ecoly International, Inc. and Luxe Beauty
Midco Corporation -- distribute and market hair care products
under the Sexy Hair brand.  Production and manufacture of the
products is outsourced.

SHILO INN: Gets Interim OK to Use Cathay Bank's Cash Collateral
---------------------------------------------------------------
Shilo Inn, Killeen, LLC, sought and obtained interim authorization
from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of
California to use the cash collateral securing obligations to
Cathay Bank until January 14, 2011, at 5:00 p.m., P.S.T.  The
Debtor is allowed to enter into a credit line agreement in an
amount not to exceed $100,000 from Shilo Franchise International,
LLC.

The Debtor operates a 160 all-suite full-service hotel located in
Killeen, Texas, pursuant to a franchise agreement with Shilo
Franchise.  Cathay originated the primary loan with the Debtor on
March 20, 2006.  On December 11, 2007, Cathay issued a replacement
loan for $15.5 million to the Debtor.  Cathay asserts a first
priority security interest in the Debtor's assets to secure an
obligation for approximately $14,902,868.

David B. Golubchik, Esq., at Levene, Neale, Bender, Yoo & Brill
L.L.P., explained that the Debtor needs the money to fund its
Chapter 11 case, and pay suppliers and other parties.  The Debtor
will use the collateral pursuant to a budget, a copy of which is
available for free at:

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

The Debtor submits that Cathay is adequately protected by the use
of cash collateral by an equity cushion of approximately 32.3%.
In addition, Cathay will be further protected by the continuing
management and operation of the Debtor's hotel, thereby preserving
the value of its collateral.

As adequate protection of Cathay's interests, the Debtor will make
to Cathay the adequate protection payments.  Cathay will be
granted replacement security interests and liens on all the
Debtor's assets and property.

As additional adequate protection, if and to the extent that the
Replacement Liens prove insufficient to adequately protect the
interests of Cathay in the cash collateral, then Cathay will be
granted a super-priority cost of administration claim.

The Debtor promises to provide Cathay monthly reports.

The Debtor anticipates certain cash shortfalls from operations in
the near future.  Cashflow shortfalls are proposed to be covered
by a $100,000 credit line to be offered to the Debtor by Shilo
Franchise.  The Debtor has authority to borrow up to $100,000 on a
junior basis to cover potential shortfalls in operations during
the bankruptcy period.  The loan will accrue interest at the rate
of 5% per annum.  Shilo Franchise has agreed to provide financing
on a junior secured basis, which does not impair Cathay's
interests herein.

A further hearing on the Debtor's request to use cash collateral
and obtain financing will be held on January 13, 2011, at
1:30 p.m.

Cathay is represented by Brandon J. Witkow, Esq. --

STEPHEN YELVERTON: Ch. 7 Trustee Substitutes as Plaintiff
---------------------------------------------------------
Judge S. Martin Teel, Jr., denied Stephen Thomas Yelverton's
motion to reconsider the Court's order substituting the Chapter 7
trustee as the plaintiff in place of the Debtor in the case
Wendell W. Webster, Trustee, v. Alexandra N. Senyi De Nagyu-Nyom,
et al., Adv. Pro. No. 09-10048 (D. D.C.).

Judge Teel said the Chapter 7 trustee is the party statutorily
empowered to pursue an avoidance action pursuant to a trustee's
avoidance powers under Chapter 5 of the Bankruptcy Code.  With
very few exceptions, the avoidance powers are designed to benefit
the estate, not the debtor, Judge Teel said, citing Hansen v.
Green Tree Servicing, LLC (In re Hansen), 332 B.R. 8, 13 (10th
Cir. B.A.P. 2005), and may not be pursued by the Debtor even when
the trustee declines to pursue the avoidance powers.

A copy of Judge Teel's December 20, 2010 Memorandum Decision and
Order is available at http://is.gd/jhAuOfrom Leagle.com.

Stephen Yelverton, a minority shareholder in Yelverton Farms,
Ltd., filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (Bankr. D. D.C.
Case No. 09-00414) on May 14, 2009.  Judge S. Martin Teel, Jr., on
August 20, 2010, denied confirmation of the Debtor's plan and
converted the case to Chapter 7.


STEPHEN YELVERTON: Fails in Bid to Pursue New Claims v. Chase
-------------------------------------------------------------
Judge S. Martin Teel, Jr., denied Stephen Thomas Yelverton's
motion to reconsider an order dismissing the adversary proceeding
as to Chase Home Finance, LLC.  Judge Teel said the Court already
adjudicated the claims that the plaintiff had pursued as of the
Court's dismissal of the adversary proceeding as to Chase.  After
the Court disposed of those claims, it is too late for the
plaintiff to ask the Court for permission to amend his amended
complaint to pursue new claims.  That the new claims might arise
out of the same subject matter as that of the existing amended
complaint does not provide a basis for starting the adversary
proceeding over by allowing the plaintiff to assert the new claims
when the plaintiff failed to identify them and pursue them prior
to the Court's granting Chase's motion to dismiss.

The case is Stephen Thomas Yelverton, v. Homes at Potomac Greens
Associates, Limited Partnership, et al., Adv. Pro. No. 10-10001
(D. D.C.).  A copy of Judge Teel's December 20, 2010 Memorandum
Decision is available at http://is.gd/jhylFfrom Leagle.com.

Stephen Yelverton, a minority shareholder in Yelverton Farms,
Ltd., filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (Bankr. D. D.C.
Case No. 09-00414) on May 14, 2009.  Judge S. Martin Teel, Jr., on
August 20, 2010, denied confirmation of the Debtor's plan and
converted the case to Chapter 7.


STRAWBERRY PARK: Creditors File Involuntary Ch. 11 Petition
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Citizens National Bank, Richard I. Rothstein, and Joseph Biber
made an involuntary Chapter 11 filing against Strawberry Park RV
Resort, Inc. (Bankr. D. Conn. Case No. 10-24277) on December 17,
2010.

According to Greg Smith at Norwich Bulletin, the involuntary
filing came before the December 20 deadline set by the court to
move to a February 26, 2010 foreclosure sale.  Preston Strawberry
Associates of Norwalk, which claims $3.4 million from Mr. Biber
from a defaulted loan, had secured the court agreement to avoid
any further delays.

Mr. Smith relates that the Strawberry Park campground, now being
run by a court-appointed management, already was the subject of
a more than $8 million court judgment in favor of TD Bank.  A
previous manager reported to the court that Mr. Biber was
routinely overdrawing bank accounts, writing checks he could
not cover and digging himself deeper into debt.

Judge Albert S. Dabrowski presides the case.  Mark E. Block, Esq.,
at Block Janney & Pascal LLC, represents the petitioners.

September 30, 2010, the Company has an accumulated deficit of
$40.41 million, a working capital deficit of $14.32 million and a
cash balance of $40,966.

KMJ Corbin & Company LLP, in Costa Mesa, Calif., expressed
substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a

TENET HEALTHCARE: Comments on CHS's Plan to Nominate Directors
--------------------------------------------------------------
Tenet Healthcare Corporation issued a statement regarding the
Community Health Systems Inc. announcement that it intends to
nominate a slate of director candidates to stand for election at
the Company's 2011 Annual Meeting of Shareholders.

The Company has not yet scheduled its 2011 Annual Meeting of
Shareholders:

   We believe that Community Health intends to nominate candidates
   for election to the Tenet Board of Directors solely to help
   advance its inadequate and opportunistic proposal to acquire
   Tenet.  As announced on December 9, 2010, the Tenet Board,
   after consultation with its financial and legal advisors,
   unanimously determined that the Community Health proposal to
   acquire Tenet for $6.00 per share in cash and stock grossly
   undervalued Tenet and was not in the best interests of Tenet or
   its shareholders.

   Tenet shareholders -- not Community Health -- deserve to
   benefit from Tenet's growth as we continue to expand margins
   and benefit from the strategic investments we are making in our
   business.  We are confident that the continued execution of our
   plan will deliver significantly more value to our shareholders
   than Community Health's inadequate proposal.

   Tenet has compelling growth prospects and a strong Board of
   Directors with a broad range of experience.  Under the Board's
   leadership, Tenet has delivered strong growth for more than
   five years, demonstrating that our strategy is working.  Going
   forward, we expect significant growth from a combination of
   acute care revenues, our expanding outpatient business, our
   business of offering healthcare services to other hospitals,
   and improved cost efficiencies.  As always, we remain focused
   on executing our core business plan and providing the highest
   quality care and good value to our customers.

Tenet's Board is comprised of 10 highly qualified directors, nine
of which are independent, and all of whom are elected annually.
Barclays Capital is acting as financial advisor to Tenet and
Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP and Debevoise & Plimpton LLP are
acting as Tenet's legal counsel.

                      About Tenet Healthcare

Dallas, Texas-based Tenet Healthcare Corporation (NYSE: THC) --
http://www.tenethealth.com/-- is a health care services company
whose subsidiaries and affiliates own and operate acute care
hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers and diagnostic imaging
centers.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2010, showed $8.53
billion in total assets, $6.77 billion in total liabilities, and
stockholders' equity of $1.76 million.

                           *     *     *

As reported by the TCR on Aug. 5, 2010, Moody's Investors Service
affirmed its "B2" corporate family rating for Tenet.  The rating
reflects Moody's expectation that the Company will likely see
positive free cash flow for the full year ending December 31,
2010, as operating results continue to improve and litigation
settlement payments end in the third quarter.  However, the
ratings also consider the significant headwinds facing the
company, and the sector as a whole, with respect to increasing bad
debt expense, weak volume trends and changes in mix as commercial
volumes decline.

S&P's corporate credit rating on Tenet is 'B' and remains
unchanged.  The ratings agency noted that while the Company has
experience recent successes to date of a multiyear turnaround
effort, the Company has a still-weak business risk profile and
high financial leverage.

Fitch Ratings has issued its Recovery Rating review of the U.S.
Healthcare sector.  This review includes an analysis of valuation
multiples, EBITDA discounts applied, and detailed recovery
worksheets for issuers with a Fitch Issuer Default Rating of 'B+'
or lower in this sector.

Fitch Ratings has placed Tenet Healthcare Corp.'s ratings on
Rating Watch Positive.  Tenet's existing ratings are Issuer
Default Rating 'B-'; Secured bank facility 'BB-/RR1'; Senior
secured notes 'BB-/RR1'; Senior unsecured notes 'B/RR3.  The
ratings apply to approximately $4.3 billion of debt
outstanding as of Sept. 30, 2010.


TERRESTAR NETWORKS: Battles With Creditors on Plan Backstop
-----------------------------------------------------------
TerreStar Networks Inc. and certain of their creditors are arguing
on who should backstop the rights offering contemplated under the
TSN Debtors' Chapter 11 Plan of Reorganization.

The Debtors filed with the Court an omnibus response to the
objections of (i) the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors;
(ii) Harbinger Capital Partners Master Fund I, Ltd. and Credit
Distressed Blue Line Master Fund, Ltd.; and (iii) the ad hoc
committee of 15% senior secured payment in kind noteholders to
the TSN Debtors' request to approve the Equity Purchase and
Commitment Agreement with EchoStar Corporation.

Ira S. Dizengoff, Esq., at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP, in
New York, tells Judge Lane that EchoStar has agreed to make
improvements to the proposed Backstop Agreement.  Since the TSN
Debtors still do not have any other actual commitment, he
maintains that entry into the Amended EchoStar Backstop Agreement
is a sound exercise of the TSN Debtors' business judgment.

The objections to the EchoStar Backstop Agreement generally fall
into three categories: (1) objections regarding the economic
terms of the Backstop Agreements, (2) objections regarding the
confirmability of and EchoStar's alleged control over the Plan,
and (3) objections regarding the timing of the hearing on the
Backstop Motion.

Mr. Dizengoff reveals that after the TSN Debtors received the
Objections and the alternative backstop proposal from the Ad Hoc
Noteholder Group, EchoStar approached the TSN Debtors with an
Amended Backstop Agreement.  He relates that the TSN Debtors
obtained significant improvements and revisions to the Original
Backstop Agreement, including, but not limited to, these terms:

  (1) Any 15% Senior Secured Noteholder may elect to, on a pro
      rata basis according to the amount of its holdings,
      participate in: (i) a backstop of the entire $125 million
      Rights Offering; (ii) the Overallotment; and (iii) the
      Right of First Refusal that may become available with
      respect to unsubscribed and non-backstopped shares; and

  (2) Any 15% Senior Secured Noteholder that agrees to
      participate in the backstop or the Overallotment will be
      entitled to earn a fee equal to 3% of its aggregate
      purchase commitment.

A redlined copy of the EchoStar Amended Backstop Agreement is
available for free at:

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

The Backstop Agreement improvements resolve many of the
objections and further establish that the Amended Backstop
Agreement is reasonable and appropriate, Mr. Dizengoff asserts.

To the contrary, Mr. Dizengoff argues, even before the
improvements to the Amended Backstop Agreement were obtained, the
Ad Hoc Group's Alternative Proposal was nowhere near as favorable
as EchoStar's Original Backstop Agreement.  "The Ad Hoc Group's
Alternative Proposal is uncommitted, unsigned and anonymous," he
says.

He adds that even if the Ad Hoc Group's Alternative Proposal was
committed, it purportedly would come with a proposed "priming"
DIP financing, to replace the TSN Debtors' current "junior" DIP
Financing, that is (i) uncommitted, (ii) requires a "priming"
fight, and (iii) is in an amount insufficient to repay the
current EchoStar DIP Financing.

Mr. Dizengoff also argues that the Ad Hoc Group's Alternative
Proposal actually provides less of a rights offering to all other
stakeholders and more value to its backstoppers than the Original
Backstop Agreement.

"Aside from the Alternative Proposal, the Ad Hoc Group's
objection is careful not to upset the apple cart because the Ad
Hoc Group's constituents largely benefit from the economics in
the Backstop Motion and the economics upon which the Plan is
based," Mr. Dizengoff says.  The Ad Hoc Group, he points out, has
no objection to the market discount purchase price because the
discount purchase price inures to their benefit.

To the extent Harbinger's and the Creditors Committee's
objections are not mooted by the Amended Backstop Agreement, Mr.
Dizengoff asserts that they should be overruled.

               Ad Hoc Group Supplements Objection;
                   Modifies Backstop Proposal

On behalf of the Ad Hoc Group, Jonathan S. Henes, Esq., at
Kirkland & Ellis LLP, in New York, contends that process matters
in a large Chapter 11 case with multiple stakeholders with
varying interests, and yet EchoStar is using its disproportionate
influence -- as the Debtors' plan sponsor and DIP lender -- to
direct the Debtors to use speed as a tactic by seeking approval
of the EchoStar backstop agreement on an expedited basis.

Accordingly, the Ad Hoc Group asks Judge Lane to deny the Amended
Backstop Agreement because it fails even to achieve its purported
goal of facilitating the pending plan of reorganization.

The Amended Backstop Agreement also obligates the Debtors to pay
fees and expenses for an amount of committed financing that is
less than what the EchoStar Plan assumes will be available to the
Debtors, Mr. Henes points out.

Mr. Henes argues that the Debtors are being directed by EchoStar
to push forward with the Amended Backstop Agreement despite
evidence there may be a value-maximizing sale alternative if
there is meaningful opportunity for such a process, and despite
the Ad Hoc Group having offered the Debtors a viable alternative
to the EchoStar Backstop that provides the Debtors and all of
their stakeholders with the opportunity to shift the Chapter 11
cases to a better path and conduct them in accordance with a
better process.

According to Mr. Henes, since the hearing on December 10, 2010,
the Ad Hoc Group has communicated with the Debtors regarding the
terms of the Alternative Backstop originally proposed as part of
the Group's Objection to the EchoStar Backstop.  In response to
the Debtors' comments and concerns, the Ad Hoc Group has improved
the terms of the Alternative Backstop, he adds.

The Ad Hoc Group believes the Modified Alternative Backstop is
superior to the EchoStar Backstop in a number of respects, like
the input of more capital to the Debtors' estates.

The amended term sheet for the Alternative Backstop Agreement of
the Ad Hoc Group includes these terms:

  1. The Debtors' Rights Offering will be fully backstopped in
     the amount of $125 million by certain members of the Ad Hoc
     Group without a set-aside for the Backstop Parties;

  2. Meaningful minority shareholder protections for future
     shareholders of the Debtors;

  3. Sufficient time to allow the Debtors to pursue a robust
     sale process, which includes an adjournment of the hearing
     to consider the Disclosure Statement for a period of at
     least 30 calendar days; and

  4. A replacement priming DIP facility in connection with the
     Modified Alternative Backstop, if necessary.

TERRESTAR NETWORKS: Fails to Get Prompt Approval of Plan Outline
----------------------------------------------------------------
TerreStar Networks, Inc.; Terrestar National Services, Inc.;
0887729 B.C. Ltd.; Terrestar License, Inc.; Terrestar Networks
Holdings (Canada), Inc.; and Terrestar Networks (Canada) Inc.
failed to obtain a final ruling on the adequacy of the Disclosure
Statement outlining their Amended Chapter 11 Plan of
Reorganization.

The hearing to consider the Disclosure Statement was originally
scheduled for December 10, 2010.  At that hearing date, however,
Judge Sean Lane for the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of New York deemed it best to continue the hearing until
December 20, saying "the current schedule was a better fit to a
pre-negotiated bankruptcy rather than a contested one," The
International Business Times related in a December 10 report.

The Disclosure Statement hearing has been further adjourned since
then, and the Court has not entered a final decision to date.

Several creditors have filed with the Court formal objections to
the Disclosure Statement and Plan based on the valuation of the
TSN Debtors' assets; how those valuations affect creditor
recovery; and the relatively short time TerreStar is pushing for
approval of the Disclosure Statement.

The Objecting Creditors include Harbinger Capital Partners, who
hold a major portion of TerreStar's 6.5% notes; Sprint Nextel
Corporation, an ad hoc noteholder group; Deutsche Bank National
Trust Company, as indenture trustee for certain senior
exchangeable notes; Solus Alternative Asset Management LP; and
the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors.

The Creditors' objections were to be taken up at the December 10
hearing.

IBTimes related that Harbinger sought more information for
creditors to do a complete economic analysis for TerreStar
because there just isn't enough information to make one.
TerreStar refuted Harbinger's contentions.  Counsel to TerreStar,
Arik Preis, Esq., at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP, in New
York, noted that Harbinger is one of most active traders of
TerreStar debt based on Securities and Exchange Commission
filings, according to IBTimes, and thus should know more than
what it professes to know.  Moreover, Sprint Nextel asserted that
TerreStar owes it a $100 million lien on certain services.

All the Creditors complained that "in attempting to deal with the
objections in a shortened time frame, TerreStar has ended up
submitting no less than three revisions to the disclosure
statement in the space of a week," IBTimes reported.

Subsequently, on December 17, TSN and five of its debtor
affiliates delivered to the Court a fourth amended version of
their Plan of Reorganization.  As with the previous plan
versions, the Fourth Amended Plan continues to contemplate (1)
the conversion of TerreStar's secured debt into equity, and (2)
the conduct of a rights offering to fund the Company's exit from
bankruptcy.  About 97% of new equity would be distributed to
secured debt holders and the rest would go to unsecured
creditors.

EchoStar Corporation owns a majority of TerreStar's $1.25 billion
secured debt and thus, is anticipated to get a major stake in the
reorganized company.  EchoStar has also agreed to backstop
$100 million of the rights offering contemplated under the Plan.

At the December 20 hearing, TerreStar and the Objecting Creditors
continued to argue their position on the Plan before Judge Lane.

          Parties Fight Over Competing Backstop Plans

Also at the December 20 hearing, TerreStar and the Objecting
Creditors fought over who should be the appropriate party to
backstop the plan-related rights offering, according to Joseph
Checkler of Dow Jones Daily Bankruptcy Review.

TerreStar stands firm in its request for approval of a deal by
which EchoStar will backstop $100 million of the contemplated
rights offering.  An ad hoc noteholder group has proposed an
alternative backstop agreement.  The alternative deal provides
that the ad hoc group will backstop the entire $125 million
rights offering with lower fees, Dow Jones related.

TerreStar's counsel noted at the hearing that the ad hoc group's
backstop proposal doesn't represent a firm commitment, Dow Jones
specified.  The report also noted that the alternative backstop
deal was not considered at the December 20 hearing.

After hearing the parties' arguments, Judge Lane further
postponed decision on the Disclosure Statement and the Backstop
Agreement through the next scheduled hearing on December 22, at
11:00 a.m. prevailing Eastern Time.

               Modifications Under 4th Amended Plan

The Fourth Amended Plan and Disclosure Statement were filed to
reflect events that have transpired since the filing of the
original Plan documents; modify, add or amend certain language on
account of comments received from various parties-in-interest in
the TSN Debtors' Chapter 11 cases; and correct various clerical
and typographical errors.  The Amended Plan documents include
these modifications:

A. Separate Plans.

    A clarification that the Plan constitutes a separate Chapter
    11 plan of reorganization for each TSN Debtor.

B. Claims Classification.

    A revised table summarizing the classification and
    description of claims and interests.  The Fourth Amended
    Plan designates 10 classes of claims and interests, as
    compared to eight claim classes in previous versions of the
    Plan.

    Classes 8 and 10 are the recently added categories of claims
    and interests.  Class 6 Unsecured Claims are further
    categorized into each specific TSN Debtor.

    The revised Class of Claims and Interests are:

    Class  Name
    -----  ----
      1    Other Priority Claims
      2    Other Secured Claims
      3    Senior Secured Notes Claims
      4    PMCA Claims
      5    Senior Exchangeable Notes Claims
      6(a) Other Unsecured Claims vs TSN
      6(b) Other Unsecured Claims vs 0887729 B.C. Ltd.
      6(c) Other Unsecured Claims vs TerreStar License Inc
      6(d) Other Unsecured Claims vs TerreStar Natl Services Inc
      6(e) Other Unsecured Claims vs TSN (Canada)
      6(f) Other Unsecured Claims vs TSN Holdings (Canada)
      7    Unsecured Convenience Claims
      8    Senior Secured Notes Deficiency Claims
      9    Equity Interests
     10    Interests in 0887729 B.C. Ltd.

    All classes of claims and interests are impaired except for
    Classes 1, 2, 4, 6(b), and 10.

    Only Classes 3, 5, 6(a), and 7 have voting rights with
    respect to the Plan.

    Holders of claims under Classes 6(a) and 6(b) will receive
    their pro rata share of the Class 6 distribution.  There
    will be no distribution to holders of claims under Classes
    6(c) through 6(f).

    Each holder of an Allowed Class 8 Claim will also receive
    its pro rata share of the Class 8 distribution.

    Holders of Class 10 Interests will have their interests
    reinstated, which have a value equal to $38 million less the
    amount of the Class 6(b) Distribution.

C. Class 6(a) Treatment.

    The addition of an explanation that in lieu of holders of
    Allowed Class 6(a) Claims receiving Rights to participate in
    the Rights Offering, holders of Allowed Class 6(a) Claims
    will be receiving New Common Stock equal to the value of the
    Rights they otherwise would have received.  Holders of
    Allowed Class 6(a) Claims will receive value without having
    to contribute cash in exchange for their shares.  Rather,
    the claimants will receive a reduced number of shares
    reflecting the fact that they did not have to pay the
    Discount Purchase Price for their shares.

    In the aggregate, approximately 48,000 shares worth
    $1.9 million are to be provided to the holders of Allowed
    Class 6(a) Claims as a result of the determination to provide
    Allowed Class 6(a) Claims New Common Stock equal to the
    value of the Rights they would otherwise have received
    in lieu of such Rights.

D. Backstop Party.

    A clarification that "Backstop Party" refer to EchoStar and
    if applicable, any holder of Senior Secured Notes that
    executes the Equity Purchase Commitment Agreement before
    Dec. 31, 2010.

E. Spectrum Lease Payments.

    The addition of a note that Spectrum Lease payments were
    originally $1 million per month through June 2010.  Upon
    receipt of the funds from Harbinger, TerreStar 1.4 Holdings
    LLC paid a dividend to its 100% shareholder TerreStar
    Holdings Inc., in the amount of the funds received.
    TerreStar Holdings Inc. then made an intercompany loan to
    Motient Ventures Holding Inc. in the amount of approximately
    $32 million.  Motient Ventures Holding Inc. then made a
    capital contribution to TSN, its 89.3% owned subsidiary of
    approximately $32 million (such capital contribution
    inured to the benefit of Motient Ventures Holdings Inc. by
    increasing the value of its equity in TSN).  The TSN Debtors
    understand that certain creditors have raised the issue as
    to whether some or all of these transfers may be subject to
    recharacterization or avoidance.  Specifically, certain of
    the preferred shareholders of TSC and parties-in-interest in
    the Non-TSN Debtors' cases have asserted that because
    Motient Ventures Holding Inc. allegedly had negative equity
    in TSN before and after the capital contribution, the
    capital contribution allegedly did not inure to the benefit
    of Motient Ventures Holding Inc. as an equityholder of TSN.
    Therefore, certain parties assert that any alleged increase
    in equity value is not a defense to a fraudulent transfer
    claim.

Statement are available for free at:

            http://bankrupt.com/misc/TrStr4thAmDS.pdf

Disclosure Statement, namely:

  -- Exhibit C: Organizational Chart;
  -- Exhibit D: Liquidation Analysis;
  -- Exhibit E: Financial Projections;
  -- Exhibit F: Valuation Analysis;

  -- Exhibit O: Joinder; and
  -- Exhibit P: Allocations Analysis.

            More Objections to Disclosure Statement

In separate filings, the Official Committee of Unsecured
Creditors; Solus Alternative Asset Management LP, Sprint Nextel
Corporation; and The Ad Hoc Group of Holders of 15% Senior
Secured Notes submitted supplements to their objections to the
TSN Debtors' Disclosure Statement.

The Supplemental Objections were filed after the TSN Debtors
submitted a fourth amended Chapter 11 Plan of Reorganization and
Disclosure Statement dated December 17, 2010.

The Objecting Parties assert that the Court should adjourn the
hearing to January 2011 to allow sufficient time for the Debtors'
sale process to mature, and to ensure that strategic investors
will view the sale process as a true viable alternative to a
stand-alone reorganization.

On behalf of the Ad Hoc Group, Jonathan S. Henes, Esq., at
Kirkland & Ellis LLP, in New York, notes that the Ad Hoc Group
has provided a solution to ensure that an alternative path can be
pursued -- the Ad Hoc Group filed a notice that it has modified
its offer of an Alternative Backstop, which includes the terms
for a modified, fully committed alternative backstop arrangement
for the Debtors' rights offering.

"The Modified Alternative Backstop allows the Debtors an
additional, necessary time for the sale process to develop and
specifically contemplates a 30 day adjournment of the Disclosure
Statement hearing," Mr. Henes says.

If, however, the Court allows the Disclosure Statement hearing to
go forward, the Ad Hoc Group asks that additional disclosure be
provided regarding:

  -- an update on the sale process, including the current status
     and a description of what the Plan would provide if the
     Debtors' assets were sold for an amount in excess of the
     amount owed to holders of the 15% Notes; and

  -- a statement indicating that, as of the date of the
     Disclosure Statement, the Ad Hoc Group does not support the
     Plan for these reasons:

       (a) The Plan does not provide sufficient time for an
           appropriately robust sale process;

       (b) The Plan does not provide the Ad Hoc Group with
           meaningful minority shareholder rights; and

       (c) No information has been provided regarding the
           Debtors' post-emergence business plan and what
           EchoStar Corporation intends to do with the business
           as the new majority shareholder under the Plan.

The Creditors' Committee aver that it was surprised that the
Debtors filed a substantially revised Disclosure Statement and
Plan late Friday evening on December 17.  Counsel to the
Committee, David M. Posner, Esq., at Otterbourg Steindler Houston
& Rosen P.C., in New York, contends that not only does the Fourth
Amended Disclosure Statement contain inadequate disclosure in
many areas suggested by the Court, but it now contains material
changes including some directly impacting general unsecured
creditors -- many of which were included without previously
consulting with the Committee's professionals.

Sprint Nextel, for its part, asserts that it has not had
sufficient time to fully analyze the Amended Plan or to identify
all potential issues raised by the new Plan and Disclosure
Statement, having been provided only one business day to consider
the new Plan documents.  "Until all issues can be identified, it
is premature to discuss an appropriate litigation schedule," Eric
T. Moser, Esq., at K&L Gates LLP, in New York, counsel to Sprint
Nextel, argues.

Counsel to Solus Alternative, Susheel Kirpalani, Esq., at Quinn
Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan LLP, in New York, emphasizes that
"while it is not uncommon for a disclosure statement to undergo
revisions after being filed with the Court, the wholesale changes
to the Disclosure Statement and the underlying Plan proposed by
the Debtors in the cases far exceed the boundaries of what is
acceptable.

TRIBUNE CO: Committee Wants to Stay Suit vs. JPMorgan et al.
------------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors in Tribune Co.'s
cases asks the Bankruptcy Court to stay the prosecution of its
adversary proceeding against JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., Merrill
Lynch Capital Corporation, and other leveraged buyout lenders.
The Preference Action seeks to avoid and recover payments of
principal or interest on the LBO loans made by Tribune on or
within the 90 days preceding the Petition Date.  The Preference
Action seeks not less than $178,452,422.

According to the Committee, a stay of the Preference Action is
warranted to conserve estate resources and preserve the status quo
pending the outcome of the ongoing plan process, which may
significantly affect the prosecution of the Preference Action.
Given that the Preference Action could be eliminated, reduced or
mooted following the confirmation of certain proposed plans of
reorganization, the requested stay will ensure that the estates'
resources are not consumed needlessly in pursuit of actions that
will not ultimately result in additional recoveries for creditors,
the Committee asserts.

Moreover, the Committee relates that it intends to consolidate or
dismiss the Preference Action should the Court grant its Motion to
Amend.  The Committee filed, on December 7, 2010, an amended
Complaint in the LBO Lender Action.  The Committee filed a motion
on December 8 to amend the First Amended Complaint in the LBO
Lender Action, which exhibits concerned the preference claims
against the LBO Lender Preference Defendants.

of Delaware amended, on December 16, 2010, the order approving the

TRIBUNE CO: Court Stays Prosecution of Avoidance Actions
--------------------------------------------------------
Tribune Co. and its units sought and obtained approval from the
Bankruptcy Court to stay until June 30, 2011, the prosecution of
avoidance actions that they filed before the expiration of the
two-year limitation period imposed under Section 546(a) of the
Bankruptcy Code.

The Debtors seek to stay the prosecution of the Avoidance Actions
to conserve estate resources and preserve the status quo pending
the outcome of the plan process, which may largely moot the
litigation or otherwise affect the determination as to the
appropriate prosecution of the Avoidance Actions.

The Debtors relate that they have extensively reviewed and
analyzed all payments made (a) to third parties within 90 days
prior to the Petition Date and (b) to insiders within one year
prior to the Petition Date.  According to the Debtors, their
analysis respecting the categories of avoidance claims to be
preserved was vetted thoroughly with the Official Committee of
Unsecured Creditors' advisors who also conducted their own
independent investigation of potential preference causes of
action.  The Debtors maintain that they share a common assessment
with the Creditors' Committee of potential Avoidance Actions and
the manner in which they should be treated in the Debtors' cases.

Based on their analyses, the Debtors filed or preserved by tolling
agreements avoidance actions filed against about 89 third parties.
The avoidance actions involve prepetition payments valued at
approximately $90 million, the Debtors say in court papers.

Together with the claims to be filed by the Committee, more than
$500 million in payments will be pursued or preserved through
tolling agreements, the Debtors tell the Court.  The Debtors will
enter into tolling agreements with or commence Avoidance Actions
exclusively against third parties on or before the Avoidance Bar
Date.

The Debtors relate that they have entered into agreements to toll
the Avoidance Bar Date with respect to approximately $37.3 million
in payments made during the Preference Period, and are continuing
to finalize additional tolling agreements.

                           *     *     *

The Debtors certified to the Court that no objection was filed as
to the Motion.  However, the Debtors subsequently withdrew the
Certificate of no Objection because Constellation NewEnergy, Inc.
objected to the motion.

CNE maintained that a stay of the avoidance actions is both
necessary and appropriate but the stay should be mutual.
According to CNE, the avoidance actions should be stayed for all
purposes subject to further order of the Court.

CNE sold electricity to the Debtors prior to the Petition Date.
CNE has been named defendant in at least six of the avoidance
actions recently filed by the Debtors.

CNE objects to the limitations on the stay proposed by the
Debtors, especially the provision allowing the Debtors to take
immediate discovery in the avoidance actions.  The form of order
proposed with the Motion would allow the Debtors, without further
relief from the Court, to amend the complaints filed in the
avoidance actions, serves process on defendants, and take steps,
including immediately pursuing discovery, as are necessary for the
purpose of preventing applicable statutes of limitations or other
time-related defenses baring any of the claims asserted in the
Avoidance Actions, CNE complains.  CNE adds that the limitations
to the stay sought by the Debtors are unnecessary.

CNE further complains that the Debtors have failed to justify why
they might require immediate discovery in any case or why they
might need to take any other action to preserve their claims.
There is no reason why the defendants should have to answer the
Debtors' discovery requests without being able to propound
requests of their own, CNE contends.  This, plus the vague nature
of the "steps" the proposed order allows Debtors to take, creates
unacceptable opportunities for mischief, CNE avers.

CNE then withdrew the objection without prejudice.  The Debtors
related in a certification of counsel that following discussion
with CNE, they have resolved CNE's objection.

WASHINGTON MUTUAL: Court Snubs Equity Panel's Objection to Plan
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Mary F. Walrath of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Delaware denied the request of the Official Committee
of Equity Security Holders to file supplemental objection to Plan
confirmation.

The Equity Committee objected to the Debtors' decision to adjourn
the hearing on the motion to abandon their equity in WMB until
January 6, 2011.  The Equity Committee said the Debtors' decision
to adjourn the meeting significantly impacts the Debtors'
valuation for purposes of Plan confirmation.

The equity holders related that at the confirmation hearing held
earlier this month, Stephen M. Zelin of Blackstone Advisory
Partners, L.P., valuated certain net operating loss assets of
Reorganized WMI.  Mr. Zelin's valuation of NOL carryforward owned
by the Reorganized WMI assumed that the stock loss would be
declared on December 24, 2010, with a resulting unlimited NOL of
$100 million.

The Debtors' expert's analysis was predicated on the assumption
that the Debtors would abandon their equity in WMB on December 24.

YRC WORLDWIDE: Gets More Time to Finalize Recovery Plan
-------------------------------------------------------
YRC Worldwide Inc. announced amendments to its credit agreement
and asset-backed securitization facility.  Both amendments are
intended to provide additional time for the company and its key
stakeholders to finalize plans to recapitalize the company's
balance sheet, including working with its lenders and the Teamster
negotiating committee for the International Brotherhood of
Teamsters.

The amended credit facilities extend the deferral of credit
agreement interest and fees through mid-May 2011 and interest and
fees under the ABS facility through May 31, 2011.  The amendment
requires the company to reach an agreement in principal to
recapitalize its balance sheet by February 28, 2011, complete
final documentation by March 15, 2011 and close by May 13, 2011.
The effectiveness of the credit agreement and ABS facility
amendments is subject to the consent of TNFINC and agreement by a
supermajority of the multi-employer pension funds who are party to
the company's contribution deferral agreement to an extension of
the deferral of interest and principal payments under that
agreement through May 31, 2011.

In addition, the amendments establish the company's 2011 financial
covenants in conjunction with the company's finalization of its
2011 financial forecast.  For the four quarters ending March 31,
2011, the company's adjusted earnings before interest, taxes,
depreciation and amortization covenant is $140 million and its
minimum available cash covenant will remain at $25 million.

"We appreciate the continued support of all our stakeholders as we
work to finalize our comprehensive recovery plan," said Sheila
Taylor, Executive Vice President and CFO of YRC Worldwide.  "These
amendments are another indication of the positive dialogue with
our lenders and their further interest in a long-term solution for
the company."

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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