15-35 HEMPSTEAD: Creditor NYCB Wants Chapter 11 Trustee Appointed
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Secured creditor New York Community Bank asks the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the District of New Jersey to appoint a Chapter 11
trustee in the cases of 15-35 Hempstead Properties, LLC, and
Jackson 299 Hempstead, LLC.

NYCB claims the Debtors owe it $18,748,710, with the debt secured
by a first priority lien against the Debtors' property in 101
Boardwalk, Atlantic City, New Jersey.  In addition to the liens
against the property, there are two additional liens against the
property junior to NYBC -- a mortgage held by Singer Financial
Corp. in the principal amount of $500,000 and a mortgage held by
Blue Sun LLC in the principal amount of $225,000.

ALEXIS BELLINO: Foreclosure Auction Will Take Place on February 10
------------------------------------------------------------------
The Orange County Register reports that a foreclosure auction for
the Newport Beach home of O.C. "Housewife" Alexis Bellino and her
husband James has been set for Feb. 10, 2011.

According to the report, Bellino's business is based at his 6-
bedroom home in Newport Beach, which, in addition to being in
default on a loan, is listed for sale.  The 6,400-square foot,
6-bedroom house is also on the market and being offered as a short
sale -- or for less than what is owed on the mortgage.  But the
lender, JPMorgan Chase, would have to agree.  The asking price is
$3,395,000.  The published bid at auction is listed at $4,677,635.
The couple has said they are still negotiating with the bank.


ALLEN CAPITAL: Wants RSA Plan Outline Hearing Moved to April 15
---------------------------------------------------------------
DLH Master Land Holding, LLC, et al., ask the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Northern District of Texas to postpone the hearing
on the disclosure statement explaining Richard S. Allen, Inc., and
Richard S. Allen's proposed Chapter 11 plan and extend their
exclusive periods to propose and solicit acceptances for a Chapter
11 plan.

There are two separate Chapter 11 plans filed in the Debtors'
Chapter 11 cases -- one filed by RSAI and Mr. Allen, and another
filed by DLH and Allen Capital Partners.

The Court previously set a RSA Disclosure Statement hearing for
January 24, 25 and 26, 2011.  The Debtors request that the Court:

   -- reset the deadline for RSAI and Mr. Allen to file an amended
      Disclosure Statement and Plan to April 15;

   -- reset the hearing on RSAI and Allen's Disclosure Statement
      to a date after April 15 that allows parties in interest a
      reasonable time to file and serve objections; and

   -- reset the confirmation hearing on Allen and RSAI's Plan to a
      date after approval of their Disclosure Statement that
      allows sufficient time to solicit acceptances, and extends
      the exclusive period for solicitation of acceptances of that
      Plan accordingly.

The Debtors relate that while Debtors ACP and DLH intend to file
their Third Amended Disclosure Statement and Plan on January 10,
per the Court's December 7 Order, the terms of the ACP and DLH
Plan may change as a result of negotiations, discussions and
amendment after January 10.

According to the Debtors, "The outcome of the ACP and DLH Plan
will have a material impact on the way that Allen and RSAI proceed
with the amendment of their Plan and Disclosure Statement.
Therefore, efficiency and judicial economy support the requested
extension, so that Allen and RSAI are not faced with the need to
amend their Disclosure Statement and Plan multiple times and the
Court is not faced with multiple amendments and hearings on Allen
and RSAI's Disclosure Statement and Plan."

                          RSAI Plan

The hearing on the adequacy of Richard S. Allen and Richard S.
Allen, Inc.'s Disclosure Statement, as amended, will commence on
January 26, 2011 at 1:30 p.m.

The Debtors project to pay all Holders of Claims against Mr. Allen
and RSAI in full over time, with interest to the extent required
by the Bankruptcy Code or other applicable law.

The cash flow projections of RSAI reflect the payment in full of
all creditors of RSAI within a six-year period following the
Effective Date of the Plan.  The cash flow projections of Mr.
Allen reflect the payment in full of all creditors of Mr. Allen
within a seven-year period following the Effective Date of the
Plan.  Creditors of Mr. Allen and RSAI that are also creditors of
ACP and/or DLH are projected to be repaid through a combination of
distributions from Allen, RSAI, DLH and/or ACP, as applicable.

                     Allen Capital & DLH Plan

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas has
set a hearing commencing on January 24, 2011, at 1:30 p.m., to
consider adequacy of the Third Amended Disclosure Statement
explaining DLH Master Land Holding, LLC, and Allen Capital
Partners, LLC's Plan of Reorganization.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on December 22, 2010,
the Plan contemplates the Debtors obtaining a combination of one
or more term loans or equity contributions totaling $30 million to
$50 million as exit financing, using some of those monies to
obtain releases of collateral which would then be pledged as
security to support the Exit Financing facility.  The remaining
Exit Financing proceeds will be used to pay the DIP loan, fund
post-Effective Date Operations, pay Chapter 11 expenses and
provide certain cash outs to certain small unsecured creditors
willing to deeply discount their claims for cash, provide an
interest reserve and finance the construction of certain
improvements.  The Debtors are discussing the financing with a
number of potential sources, but do not currently have a
commitment.  Because the Debtors do not currently know the precise
collateral required by the lender or lenders the final terms of
the DLH Exit Financing may differ from what Debtors are currently
proposing.

The ACP Exit Financing will potentially be obtained by sale of a
portion of ACP's 100% ownership interest in LPKC, an entity which
holds an option from the BNSF railway to purchase land adjacent to
an intermodal in Kansas City or may take the form of a loan
secured by a junior interest in the various membership interests
held by ACP.  The Debtors anticipate ACP's non-bankrupt
subsidiaries may also be required to pledge assets to secure the
ACP Exit Financing.  Similar to the DLH Exit Financing, the
proceeds from the ACP Exit Financing will be used to pay the DIP
loans, pay Chapter 11 expenses and cash outs to unsecured ACP
creditors willing to discount claims for cash, and provide
interest and operating reserves.

In the event the Debtors are unable to obtain Exit Financing, the
Plan will be null and void in all respects, the Effective Date
will never occur and the Confirmation Order would be voided.

Under the Plan, Unsecured Allowed Claims against DLH total
approximately $11.6 million, including approximately $637,000 in
smaller claims (less than $ 125,000 each).

DLH proposes a cafeteria plan with options for Allowed Unsecured
Claims:

   A) 20 % in cash paid to each electing holder of an Allowed
      Claim of $125,000 or less or, the holder of any Allowed
      Claim that is willing to reduce its claim to $125,000.
      These claims are payable within 90 days after the Effective
      Date and will be funded from proceeds of the Exit Financing.

   B) Receive a Variable Pay Note in the principal amount of 50%
      of the electing holder's Allowed Claim, payable without
      interest from 75% of DLH Unsecured Net Proceeds.  If not
      previously paid, these notes will mature and be fully
      payable seven years from the Effective Date.

   C) Receive a Variable Pay Note in the principal amount of 100%
      of the electing holder's Allowed Claim payable from 25% of
      DLH Unsecured Net Proceeds, but only until the Option B
      notes are paid in full, and thereafter receiving all of the
      DLH Unsecured Net Proceeds.  If not previously paid, these
      notes will mature and be fully payable ten years from the
      Effective Date, with interest accruing at the federal
      judgment rate in effect on the Effective Date.  From
      September 27, 2010, to October 3, the federal judgment rate
      was 0.25%.

   D) An electing holder of an Allowed Unsecured Claim may convert
      its Allowed Claim to a Class B Preferred Callable Membership
      Interest with par value equal to the amount of the Allowed
      Claim.

For all remaining unsecured ACP creditors, ACP proposes a
cafeteria plan whose options will be:

   A) 20 % in cash paid to each holder of an Allowed Claim of
      $60,000 or less or which the holder is willing to reduce its
      claim to $60,000.  These claims will be payable within 90
      days after the Effective Date and will be funded from
      proceeds of the Exit Financing.

   B) Receive a Variable Pay Note in the principal amount of 50%
      of the electing holder's Allowed Claim, payable without
      interest from their pro rata share of 75% of ACP Unsecured
      Creditor Net Proceeds.  Unless previously paid, these notes
      mature seven years from the Effective Date.

   C) Receive a Variable Pay Note in the principal amount of 100%
      of the electing holder's Allowed Claim payable from 25% of
      ACP Unsecured Creditor Net Proceeds, but only until the
      Option B notes are paid in full, and thereafter receiving
      all of the ACP Unsecured Creditor Net Proceeds.  If not
      previously paid, these notes will mature and be fully
      payable ten years from the Effective Date, with interest
      accruing at the federal judgment rate on the Effective Date
      of the Plan.

   D) Class C Preferred Callable Preferred Membership Interests in
      DLH.

The Debtor's affiliate -- DLH Master Land Holding, LLC, dba The
Allen Group -- filed a separate Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition.

Another affiliate, Visalia, California-based Richard S. Allen,
Inc., filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on May 3, 2010
(Bankr. N.D. Texas Case No. 10-33211).  Patrick J. Neligan, Jr.,
Esq., at Neligan Foley LLP, represent the Debtor.  The Company
estimated assets and debts at $50 million to $100 million.


ALOHA AIRLINES: Yucaipa Finally Buys Aloha Trademark
----------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Yucaipa Cos., the owner of Aloha Airlines Inc. and a
second-lien lender, succeeded in buying most of the defunct
airline's remaining assets, including the Aloha name.

Mr. Rochelle recounts that in May 2009, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge
Lloyd King in Honolulu refused to sell the airline's name to
Yucaipa because the trademark was to be resold to Mesa Air Group
Inc., whose Go! airline was accused of using confidential
information and predatory tactics to drive both Aloha and Hawaiian
Airlines into bankruptcy.  In his opinion last year, Judge King
said that Phoenix-based Mesa should be considered a co-purchaser
of the Aloha name.  The judge said that Mesa inflicted "great
harm" on Aloha and its thousands of employees and he couldn't
allow Mesa "to perfect its wrongdoing by becoming Aloha."

Mr. Rochelle relates that Judge King approved the sale to Yucaipa
at the end of the year for $71,429 cash and a $1.43 million credit
against Yucaipa's secured claim.  The sale agreement included a
provision prohibiting Yucaipa from reselling the name to Mesa.
Had Judge King approved the sale last year, Mesa would have
purchased the name from Yucaipa by paying $6 million over 10
years.

                    About Aloha Airgroup

Based in Honolulu, Hawaii, Aloha Airgroup Inc., Aloha Airlines
Inc., and affiliates -- http://www.alohaairlines.com/-- flew
passengers and freight to Hawaii's five major airports, as well as
to half a dozen destinations in the western U.S.  They operated a
fleet of about 20 aircraft, all Boeing 737s, including three
configured as freighters.

Aloha filed for Chapter 11 protection on Dec. 30, 2004 (Bankr. D.
Hawaii Case No. 04-03063), and emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy
protection in February 2006.

The Company and its affiliates filed again for Chapter 11
protection on March 18, 2008 (Bankr. D. Hawaii Lead Case No.
08-00337).  Brian G. Rich, Esq., Jordi Guso, Esq., and Paul Steven
Singerman, Esq., at Berger Singerman P.A., and David C. Farmer,
Esq., represent the Debtors in their restructuring efforts.  The
Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors was represented by
Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal LLP and Bronster Hoshibata.  The
Debtors' schedules reflected total assets of $74,600,000 against
total liabilities of $197,100,000.

On April 29, 2008, the Court converted the Debtors' cases into
chapter 7 liquidation proceedings.  The next day, the U.S. Trustee
appointed Dane S. Field to serve as chapter 7 trustee for the
cases.  James Wagner, Esq., at Wagner Choi & Verbrugge, represents
Mr. Field.


AMBAC FINANCIAL: K. Veera Wants Lift Stay to Pursue Class Suit
--------------------------------------------------------------
Karthikeyan V. Veera is a plaintiff in a proposed class action
before the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New
York, captioned Veera v. Ambac Plan Administrative Committee, et
al., No. 1:10-cv-4191.  Mr. Veera commenced the Class Action on
behalf of himself and other participants in the Ambac Financial
Group, Inc. Savings Incentive Plan who have lost their retirement
assets by investing in AFG common stock through the Plan.
Mr. Veera has brought the claims against the fiduciaries of the
Plan for violating the Employee Retirement Income Security Act,
but has not named AFG as a defendant in the Class Action.
Discovery is ongoing in the Class Action and Judge Harold Baer,
the presiding judge in the Class Action, has set a June 30, 2011
deadline for fact discovery.

Stephen J. Fearon, Jr., Esq., at Squitieri & Fearon, LLP, in New
York -- stephen@sfclasslaw.com -- asserts that the defendants'
counsel in the Class Action has represented that AFG controls the
majority of the documents that Mr. Veera has sought from the
defendants and that the automatic stay applies to almost all of
the discovery that Mr. Veera seeks in the Class Action as well as
to the witness whom Mr. Veera seek to depose.  Mr. Fearon further
notes that the defendants have argued that the Plaintiff must
seek leave in AFG's Chapter 11 case for discovery.

Against this backdrop, Mr. Veera asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the Southern District of New York to enter:

(i) a declaration that the automatic stay in the Debtor's case
     does not apply to his proposed discovery of AFG; or

(ii) in the alternative, an order granting relief from the
     automatic stay to allow him to serve a subpoena on AFG and
     take all other actions necessary to obtain documents and
     testimony from the Debtor in support of his claims against
     the non-Debtor defendants in the Class Action.

Mr. Fearon insists that the automatic stay does not apply to Mr.
Veera's efforts to secure discovery from the Debtor.  Mr. Fearon
clarifies that by seeking document production and testimony from
AFG, Mr. Veera does not seek to commence an action against the
Debtor.  Mr. Fearon further contends that when AFG filed for
bankruptcy, it was not and still is not a defendant in Mr.
Veera's lawsuit.

In the event the Bankruptcy Court determines that the automatic
stay applies to Mr. Veera's attempts to seek discovery from the
Debtor, cause exists to lift the automatic stay to allow Mr.
Veera to seek discovery from the Debtor, Mr. Fearon asserts.  The
automatic stay harms Mr. Veera and the class he seeks to
represent because a stay would deprive him and the class of the
evidence they need to properly pursue their claims, Mr. Fearon
maintains.

On the contrary, AFG's estate will not be prejudiced by lifting
the automatic stay because, among other things, the records
sought are primarily electronic in nature and could easily be
produced with minimal cost and effort on the part of the Debtor,
Mr. Fearon assures the Bankruptcy Court.

Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code in Manhattan (Bankr.
S.D.N.Y. Case No. 10-15973) on November 8, 2010.  Ambac said it
will continue to operate in the ordinary course of business as
"debtor-in-possession" under the jurisdiction of the Bankruptcy
Court and in accordance with the applicable provisions of the
Bankruptcy Code and the orders of the Bankruptcy Court.

Ambac's bond insurance unit, Ambac Assurance Corp., did not file
for bankruptcy.  AAC is being restructured by state regulators in
Wisconsin.  AAC is domiciled in Wisconsin and regulated by the
Office of the Commissioner of Insurance of the State of Wisconsin.
The parent company is not regulated by the OCI.

Ambac's consolidated balance sheet -- which includes non-debtor

$31.47 billion in total liabilities, and a $1.42 billion
stockholders' deficit, at June 30, 2010.

On an unconsolidated basis, Ambac said in a court filing that
it has assets of ($394.5 million) and total liabilities of

AMBAC FINANCIAL: Wants Until June 7 to Remove Civil Actions
-----------------------------------------------------------
Pursuant to Rules 9006(b) and 9027 of the Federal Rules of
Bankruptcy Procedure, Ambac Financial Group, Inc., asks Bankruptcy
Judge Shelley Chapman to extend the time by which it must file
notices of removal of related civil actions and proceedings to
which it is or may become party to, to the later of:

  (a) June 7, 2011; or

  (b) 30 days after the entry of an order terminating the
      automatic stay with respect to the particular Civil Action
      sought to be removed.

Pursuant to Rule 9027(a)(2), the Debtor's existing removal action
period for civil actions that have not been stayed pursuant to
Section 362(a) of the Bankruptcy Code expires on Feb. 7, 2011.
With respect to a postpetition Civil Action, the Debtor has only
30 days from receipt to determine whether removal is appropriate.

Allison H. Weiss, Esq., at Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP, in New York,
notes that since the Petition Date, the Debtor has focused on
efforts of stabilizing its business and ensuring a smooth
transition into Chapter 11 while, at the same time, focusing on
other time sensitive and complex aspects of its bankruptcy case.
The Debtor, she specifies, has been working diligently to
maintain relationships with its vendors, prepare its Statement of
Financial Affairs and Schedules of Assets and Liabilities,
establish a bar date for filing proofs of claim, and other day-
to-day Chapter 11 tasks including responding to extensive
document and information requests from the Official Committee of
Unsecured Creditors.

More importantly, Ms. Weiss says, the Debtor has participated in
extensive negotiations in an effort to reach an agreement on its
balance sheet restructuring to be accomplished through a
consensual bankruptcy plan of reorganization with the Office of
the Commissioner of Insurance of the State of Wisconsin and the
Creditors Committee.  The Debtor continues to negotiate with the
OCI and the Creditors Committee regarding a settlement of
significant issues that affect AAC and the Debtor, she says.  In
addition, the Debtor's adversary proceeding against the Internal
Service Revenue has required additional time and efforts of the
Debtor's employees, she cites.

With respect to the Civil Actions, the Debtor is continuing to
review its files and records to determine whether it should
remove any claims or civil causes of action to which it is or
might become a party, Ms. Weiss states.  The Debtor is party to
numerous lawsuits and is still assessing these lawsuits to
determine whether removal is warranted, she relates.  The Debtor
has rightfully focused the bulk of its energy in the early months
of this case on stabilizing operations and assessing
restructuring options, all to preserve value for the benefit of
all parties-in-interest, she asserts.

As a result, the Debtor requires additional time to consider
filing notices of removal of the Civil Actions, according to Ms.
Weiss.  Given the early stages of this Chapter 11 case, extending
the period to file notices of removals will permit the Debtor to
timely review its pending litigation matters and properly
evaluate them within the larger context of its Chapter 11 case,
she stresses.  She assures the Court that the proposed extension
of the Removal Action Deadline will not unduly prejudice any
counterparty to the Civil Actions.

The Court will consider the Debtor's request on January 19, 2011.
Objections are due no later than January 12.

as trustee in respect of the Debtor's Senior Notes; (iii) Law
Debenture Trust Company of New York, as trustee in respect of the
Debtor's Directly Issued Subordinated Capital Securities; and
(iv) counsel to the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors.

AMERICAN AXLE: Names Former Harley-Davidson Exec. as Ind. Director
------------------------------------------------------------------
On January 6, 2011, the board of directors of American Axle &
Manufacturing Holdings, Inc., elected James A. McCaslin as an
independent director of the Board effective February 8, 2011.
Mr. McCaslin will serve as a Class III director for a term
expiring on the date of the Company's 2011 annual meeting of
stockholders.  The Board expanded the size of the Board from 10 to
11 directors.  Mr. McCaslin is expected to stand for re-election
as a Class III director at the Company's annual meeting of
stockholders on April 28, 2011.

Mr. McCaslin recently retired from Harley-Davidson, Inc., where he
held various senior executive-level positions during his 18 years
of service, including president and chief operating officer of
Harley-Davidson Motor Company.  From 1989 to 1992, he held
manufacturing and engineering leadership roles with J.I. Case, a
manufacturer of agricultural equipment.  Previously, Mr. McCaslin
held manufacturing, engineering, and quality positions with
Chrysler Corporation, Volkswagen USA, and the Chevrolet Division
of General Motors Corporation, where he began his 40-year career
in manufacturing.

The Board elected Mr. McCaslin to this new Board position based
on, among other things, his extensive operational and
manufacturing experience in the automotive, agricultural, and
motorcycle industries in the original equipment and aftermarket
product markets.  His skills and experience are aligned with AAM's
key strategic objectives and will serve the Company well as AAM
continues to expand globally and diversify its product portfolio.

Headquartered in Detroit, Michigan, American Axle & Manufacturing

supplier to the automotive industry.  American Axle manufactures,
engineers, designs and validates driveline and drivetrain systems
and related components and chassis modules for light trucks, sport
utility vehicles, passenger cars, crossover vehicles and
commercial vehicles.  AXL has financial support from GM, its
largest customer which accounted for 78% of sales in 2009.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2010, showed
$2.07 billion in total assets, $2.54 billion in total liabilities,
and a stockholders' deficit of $469.1 million.

                           *     *     *

In September 2010, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its
corporate credit rating on American Axle & Manufacturing Holdings
to 'B+' from 'B-'.  The outlook is stable.  "The upgrade reflects
S&P's opinion that American Axle's credit measures will improve
further in 2011 under the gradual recovery in North American auto
demand, and that the company's gross margins will expand more than
S&P previously expected," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Larry Orlowski.  The company's second-quarter results improved
significantly over those of 2009.   Revenue was $559.6 million,
more than twice as much as second-quarter sales a year ago,
reflecting improving light-vehicle demand and extended shutdowns
of GM and Chrysler in 2009.

In August 2010, Moody's Investors Service raised American Axle's
Corporate Family Rating and Probability of Default Rating to B2
from Caa1.  The raising of American Axle's CFR rating to B2
reflects the company's improved operating performance over the
past two quarters and Moody's belief that this improvement will be
sustained over the intermediate term, supported by stable
automotive vehicle production in North America and cost structure
improvements completed by the company in 2009.  These conditions
no longer support the default risk indicated by the Caa rating.


AMERICAN INT'L: Gives Dividends of Warrants to Buy 75MM Shares
--------------------------------------------------------------
American International Group, Inc. announced that its Board of
Directors has conditionally declared a dividend of approximately
75 million warrants to purchase shares of AIG common stock at $45
per share to be distributed on January 19, 2011, to AIG's common
shareholders of record as of January 13, 2011.

The Warrants are being issued as part of a series of integrated
transactions to recapitalize AIG initially announced on September
30, 2010.  The U.S. Department of the Treasury will not receive
Warrants in this distribution.

"This marks continued progress for AIG towards completing the
recapitalization and furthering our work to repay the U.S.
taxpayer," said Robert H. Benmosche, AIG President and Chief
Executive Officer.  "We are working diligently to complete this
plan in the coming weeks."

                       Condition to Issuance

The issuance of the Warrants as a dividend is subject to the
condition that the parties to the recapitalization each determines
as of the close of business on January 12, 2011, that it expects
that the recapitalization will close on January 14, 2011.  AIG
will issue a press release on January 12, 2011, announcing whether
or not this condition has been satisfied.  If this condition is
not satisfied, AIG will not issue the Warrants, and holders of AIG
common stock will have no right to receive the Warrants.  There
can be no assurance that this condition will be satisfied.

                       Terms of the Warrants

If the above condition is satisfied, AIG common shareholders will
be issued 0.533933 Warrants for every share of AIG common stock
owned on the record date.  Each Warrant will entitle the holder to
purchase one share of AIG's common stock at an exercise price of
$45 per share, subject to anti-dilution adjustment for certain
events.  The Warrants will be exercisable through January 19,
2021, which is ten years from the date of issuance.

                        Trading on the NYSE

AIG has applied to have the Warrants listed on the New York Stock
Exchange under the ticker symbol "AIG WS" and anticipates that the
Warrants will begin trading on the NYSE on a "when issued" basis
on or around January 13, 2011.  AIG has been advised by the NYSE
that the ex-dividend date for the AIG common stock will be delayed
through the use of "due bills," such that AIG common stock will
begin trading in a regular way, ex-dividend, on January 20, 2011,
the date following the anticipated issuance of the Warrants.  Due
bills are essentially an assignment from a seller of common stock
to a buyer of the right to receive the dividend if the condition
to the dividend is satisfied.  If the condition is not satisfied,
the due bills will be immediately cancelled and no Warrants will
be issued.

                   Tax Treatment and Withholding

The issuance of the Warrants may be treated as a taxable
distribution for U.S. federal income tax purposes.  AIG therefore
intends to withhold tax on the distribution of the Warrants to
non-U.S. holders of common stock.  In the event that it is
determined after the date of distribution that the distribution of
the Warrants was not subject to United States federal income tax,
AIG will publicly announce this determination, and any holder
subject to withholding tax may then be entitled to a refund by
filing a refund claim with the United States Internal Revenue
Service.  Holders should consult a tax advisor regarding the U.S.
federal and other tax consequences of the distribution of the
Warrants.

                      Impact on Equity Units

The issuance of the Warrants will trigger certain anti-dilution
adjustments to the settlement rates of AIG's outstanding Equity
Units in accordance with their terms, effective as of the record
date.  AIG will notify Equity Unit holders of the amount of this
adjustment within 10 business days of the record date, as required
by the terms of the Equity Units.  This adjustment may be treated
as a taxable distribution if the distribution of the Warrants is
treated as taxable and non-U.S. Equity Unit holders may be subject
to tax withholding on future distributions to such holder or
otherwise.

                       Available Information

AIG will issue the Warrants pursuant to a warrant agreement
between AIG and Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., as warrant agent.  Copies
of the warrant agreement may be obtained at no charge from Wells
Fargo Bank, N.A., the warrant agent, at 888-899-8293 in the U.S.
(toll-free) or 651-450-4064 outside the U.S.  The warrant
agreement will also be attached as an exhibit to AIG's Current
Report on Form 8-K, which will be available on the Securities and
Exchange Commission's (SEC) website at www.sec.gov.  Information
on the procedures concerning fractional Warrants and for
exercising or selling the Warrants may be obtained by contacting
the warrant agent at the telephone number provided above or by
contacting the broker, bank, or other intermediary through which
the Warrants are held.

On or around the time of issuance, AIG intends to file with the
SEC a prospectus supplement registering the AIG common stock to be
issued upon exercise of the Warrants from time to time.  A copy of
the prospectus supplement and related prospectus may be obtained
for free, when available, on the SEC website at www.sec.gov.

collapsed under the weight of bad bets it made insuring mortgage-
backed securities.  The Company, however, was bailed out by the
Federal Reserve, but even after an initial infusion of
$85 billion, losses continued to grow.  The later rescue packages
brought the total to $182 billion, making it the biggest federal
bailout in U.S. history.

AIG has been working to protect and enhance the value of its key
businesses, execute an orderly asset disposition plan, and
position itself for the future.  AIG has sold a number of its
subsidiaries and other assets to pay down loans received from the
U.S. government, and continues to seek buyers of its assets.

A.M. Best Co. has upgraded the financial strength rating (FSR) to
B (Fair) from B- (Fair) and issuer credit ratings (ICR) to "bb"
from "bb-" of American Country Insurance Company (American
Country) and American Service Insurance Company, Inc. (American
Service) (both domiciled in Elk Grove Village, IL).  Both
companies are members of the American Service Pool (ASI Pool).
All ratings have been removed from under review with developing
implications.  In addition, A.M. Best has assigned an ICR of "b-"
to Atlas Financial Holdings, Inc. (Atlas) (Cayman Islands) and a
debt rating of "ccc" to Atlas' $18 million, 4.5% preferred shares.
The outlook assigned to all ratings is stable.

These rating actions are a result of the successful completion of
the going public transaction by Kingsway Financial Services, Inc.
(Kingsway) (Mississauga, ON) to create new ownership for American
Country and American Service, which operate under an intercompany
pooling agreement.  This was accomplished by creating Atlas and
transferring ownership from Kingsway to Atlas through a reverse
merger transaction.  Atlas is a public company whose common shares
are listed on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol AFH.

The ratings are reflective of the ASI Pool's unprofitable
operating performance and above average underwriting leverage,
which are offset in part by minimally supportive yet improving
capitalization and business profile.  In addition, capitalization
and earnings are expected to improve due to the run-off of claims
on cancelled business and actions taken by management to
strengthen the balance sheet, cancel unprofitable and non-core
lines of business, reduce expenses and focus underwriting on its
historically profitable commercial auto business.  However,
management will be challenged to meet growth and earnings
projections by strong competitive pricing pressure, weak economic
conditions, below average interest rates and historically
unfavorable loss reserve development.  These concerns are
partially mitigated by Atlas' knowledgeable management team and
improvement in claims management and reserving.


ATHANASIOS III: Has Green Light to Assume Memorial Bldg Lease
-------------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Joel T. Marker rules that Athanasios III, LLC's
request to assume a lease with Memorial Building, LLC, for use of
the restaurant/bar space known as Harry O's, is granted subject to
payment conditions.  According to Judge Marker, a motion to assume
a lease can only be granted if any prior default is cured and
adequate assurance is provided of future compliance.

Memorial, Paul J. Crowe, and KB Squared LLC have objected to the
request.  Memorial asserts that it is due adequate protection if
the Debtor is permitted to assume the lease; but the Debtor claims
it has several offsetting claims against Memorial that satisfy any
cure obligations and that provide adequate assurance of future
payments.

Crowe asserts an interest in the lease and seeks adequate
protection and an accounting of its cash collateral.  The Court,
however, held that Crowe does not have an interest in the lease
vis-a-vis the Debtor, and hence, does not have standing to object
to the Motion.

KB objects to the Motion on the basis that the Debtor has not
properly employed its counsel.  KB asserts that the Debtor's
counsel has not submitted an affidavit of disinterestedness.  The
Court held that this is not the proper time to consider such an
objection, but that such issues may be addressed upon an
application for compensation or other motion by a party-in-
interest.

------------------------------------------------------------------
Denisa R. Superville at the Record reports that the borough of
Closter, New Jersey, is seeking a bankruptcy attorney to help it
recoup the hundreds of thousands of dollars in back taxes from
Closter Plaza's owners.

filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection from creditors Dec. 8,
two days before the borough planned to hold a tax lien sale on the
property to collect $688,779 in 2010 municipal property taxes.
The Chapter 11 filing prevented the borough from holding the lien
sale on Closter Plaza.

This week the Borough Council authorized Rogan to seek quotes and
r?sum?s from bankruptcy attorneys to intercede in the bankruptcy
proceeding to allow the borough to collect the taxes, Borough
Attorney Edward Rogan said.

Stolz, Esq., at Wasserman, Jurista & Stolz, in Millburn,
serves as counsel to the Debtors.

BAKERS FOOTWEAR: Sales for Holiday Season Hiked to $46.8-Mil.
-------------------------------------------------------------
Bakers Footwear Group Inc. reported a 3.6% comparable store sales
increase for the Holiday period.

For Holiday 2010, the nine-week period from October 31, 2010 to
January 1, 2011, net sales increased to $46.8 million from $45.8
million in the same period last year.  Comparable store sales for
Holiday 2010 increased 3.6%, compared to an increase of 4.7% for
Holiday 2009, the nine-week period from November 1, 2009 to
January 2, 2010.

For December, the five-week period ended January 1, 2011, net
sales increased to $30.1 million from $30.0 million in the same
period last year.  Comparable store sales for December 2010
increased 1.3%, compared to an increase of 9.9% for December 2009,
the five-week period ended January 2, 2010.

Peter Edison, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Bakers
Footwear Group commented, "We continued our positive sales
comparisons through the holiday season, driven by the ongoing
strength in boots and dress shoes.  We are especially pleased to
maintain our positive trend as we anniversaried a 9.9% increase in
December comparable store sales last year.  As a result, Bakers
delivered a 4.5% comparable store sales increase for the first
five months of the fall season.  We remain confident that our
strategic growth initiatives will lead to sustainable improvements
in our sales performance."

BERNARD L MADOFF: Investors Object to Picower Accord
----------------------------------------------------
Thom Weidlich at Bloomberg News reports that a group of victims of
Bernard L. Madoff's Ponzi scheme objected to a settlement in which
the estate of Jeffry Picower agreed to forfeit $7.2 billion he
made in the fraud.

According to the report, the investors said the Picower
settlement, which leaves them out, could make it harder for them
to get money from the estate.  Irving H. Picard, the SIPA Trustee
for the consolidated liquidation of Bernard L. Madoff Investment
Securities LLC, doesn't represent them because they didn't lose
principal in the fraud.  "By the trustee's settlement, the Picower
entities are paying Picard more than twice what he could recover
if he won completely on his pending complaint," Helen Davis
Chaitman, a lawyer for the investors, said in an e-mail.

Mr. Picard sued Mr. Picower in May 2009, claiming he withdrew
$7.2 billion more than he invested and should have known
Mr. Madoff ran a Ponzi scheme.  Mr. Picower died in October 2009
at age 67.

On Dec. 17, 2010, Mr. Picard disclosed that he has entered into a
very significant settlement agreement for $5 billion to resolve
claims against the estate of the late Jeffry M. Picower and
certain related investment entities.  In conjunction with the
additional $2.2 billion the Picower group forfeited to the U.S.
government, the settlement represents 100% payment of the monies
received by the Picower estate and related investors, Mr. Picard
said.

Bloomberg notes that in the settlement, Mr. Picard would attempt
to stop other claims against the Picower estate, though that
wouldn't be a condition of the pact, according to the court
filing.  The trustee lacks the right to release the estate from
their claims, the objecting victims said.  The investors asked to
be able to engage in evidence-gathering over the proposed
settlement.  A hearing is scheduled for Jan. 13.

                      About Bernard L. Madoff

Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC and Bernard L. Madoff
orchestrated the largest Ponzi scheme in history, with losses
topping US$50 billion.

On December 15, 2008, the Honorable Louis A. Stanton of the U.S.
District Court for the Southern District of New York granted the
application of the Securities Investor Protection Corporation for
a decree adjudicating that the customers of BLMIS are in need of
the protection afforded by the Securities Investor Protection Act
of 1970.  The District Court's Protective Order (i) appointed
Irving H. Picard, Esq., as trustee for the liquidation of BLMIS,
(ii) appointed Baker & Hostetler LLP as his counsel, and (iii)
removed the SIPA Liquidation proceeding to the Bankruptcy Court
(Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Adv. Pro. No. 08-01789) (Lifland, J.).  Mr.
Picard has retained AlixPartners LLP as claims agent.

On April 13, 2009, former BLMIS clients filed an involuntary
Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition against Bernard Madoff (Bankr.
S.D.N.Y. 09-11893).  The case is before Hon. Burton Lifland.  The
petitioning creditors -- Blumenthal & Associates Florida General
Partnership, Martin Rappaport Charitable Remainder Unitrust,
Martin Rappaport, Marc Cherno, and Steven Morganstern -- assert
US$64 million in claims against Mr. Madoff based on the balances
contained in the last statements they got from BLMIS.

On April 14, 2009, Grant Thornton UK LLP as receiver placed Madoff
Securities International Limited in London under bankruptcy
protection pursuant to Chapter 15 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code
(Bankr. S.D. Fla. 09-16751).

The Chapter 15 case was later transferred to Manhattan.  In June
2009, Judge Lifland approved the consolidation of the Madoff SIPA
proceedings and the bankruptcy case.

Judge Denny Chin of the U.S. District Court for the Southern
District of New York on June 29, 2009, sentenced Mr. Madoff to
150 years of life imprisonment for defrauding investors in United
States v. Madoff, No. 09-CR-213 (S.D.N.Y.)

As of October 29, 2010, a total of US$5.69 billion in claims by
investors has been allowed, with US$741.2 million to be paid by
the Securities Investor Protection Corp.  Investors are expected
to receive additional distributions from money recovered by
Mr. Picard from lawsuits or settlements.


BERNARD L MADOFF: Bongiorno Wins Freedom as Judge Cuts Bail
-----------------------------------------------------------
David Glovin and Patricia Hurtado at Bloomberg News report that
Annette Bongiorno, who is accused of helping her former boss,
Bernard L. Madoff, run a multibillion-dollar Ponzi scheme, was
released from a federal jail January 7 after a judge cut her bail
to $3 million.

The report relates that U.S. District Judge Laura Taylor Swain in
Manhattan on January 7 cut Ms. Bongiorno's bail from $5 million to
$3 million after prosecutors seized most of her bank accounts and
defense lawyers agreed to disclose others.  The judge required
eight people to guarantee the bail.  Ms. Bongiorno, 62, is among
five people facing charges of helping Mr. Madoff defraud investors
of billions of dollars.  Prosecutors argued that Ms. Bongiorno is
likely to flee.

----------------------------------------------------------
The United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of
New York has moved to January 20, 2011, the hearing to consider
Blockbuster Inc. and its units' motion to extend their exclusive
periods.  The hearing was originally set for January 11.

The Debtors are asking the Court to extend to:

(a) March 21, 2011, their time to exclusively file a Chapter
     11 plan of reorganization; and

(b) May 20, 2011, their time to solicit acceptances of the
     Plan, without prejudice to their right to seek further
     extension of the Exclusive Periods.

The Debtors' current Exclusive Plan Filing Period will expire on
January 21, 2011, and their Exclusive Solicitation Period will

a Chapter 11 plan.

Pursuant to Section 1121(d), where the initial 120-day and 180-day
Exclusive Periods provided for in the Bankruptcy Code prove to be
an insufficient time frame for proposal and solicitation of a
plan, the Court may extend a debtor's Exclusive Periods for
"cause," up to a maximum of 18 months and 24 months.

BRAMPTON PLANTATION: Plan Outline Hearing Scheduled for January 25
------------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Georgia
will convene a hearing on January 25, 2011, at 10:00 a.m., to
consider adequacy of the Disclosure Statement explaining Brampton
Plantation, LLC's proposed Plan of Reorganization.  Objections, if
any, are due January 18.

The Debtor will begin soliciting votes on the Plan following
approval of the adequacy of the information in the Disclosure
Statement.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on October 12, 2010,
according to the Disclosure Statement, the Plan proposes to pay
all unclassified administrative claims either in full upon the
effective date or as may be otherwise be agreed among the Debtor
and the respective claimants.  The Plan also proposes to convey to
all priority tax claims and to secured creditors property equal in
value to the debt those creditors are owed, and a pro rata
distribution of other property to general unsecured creditors.

                Treatment of Claims and Interests

Holders of allowed tax claims of governmental units entitled to
priority under Sec. 507(a)(8) of the Bankruptcy Code -- classified
under Class 1 -- will be paid from any net proceeds derived by
Debtor from the sale of any of its unencumbered assets

Holders of secured claims -- under Classes 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 --
will retain their existing lien on the Debtor's property until a
period of time not to exceed six months from the effective date
during which land of a value sufficient to satisfy the bank's debt
will be parceled out of the property of Debtor and transferred in
fee simple to these creditor.

The claims of holders of general unsecured claims -- Class 7 -- be
satisfied by the transfer to a trust for the benefit of Class 7
creditors all land of the Debtor remaining after transfers to all
secured creditors.  The Debtor estimates that the pro rata
distribution to Class 7 Creditors will approximate a 40%
distribution on account of such claims.

Holders of all equity securities -- Class 8 -- will receive
nothing under the Plan.

from Leagle.com.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on January 4, 2011,
the bankruptcy filing follows Cabi New River and Cabi SMA Tower's
failure to refinance or restructure their mortgage debts before
they came due November 1.  According to Dow Jones' DBR Small Cap,
citing court papers, the Debtors blamed their inability to
refinance or restructure those mortgages on circumstances beyond
their control.  Cabi New River owes $18.2 million in principal to
HSBC Realty Credit Corp., while Cabi SMA Tower didn't specify the
amount or holder of its mortgage debt.

                       About Cabi New River

Aventura, Florida-based Cabi New River, LLC, fka Cabi New River

No. 10-49013).  Mindy A. Mora, Esq., at Bilzin Sumberg, serves as
the Debtors' bankruptcy counsel.  The Debtor estimated its assets
and debts at $10 million to $50 million.

Cabi SMA Tower I, LLLP (Bankr. S.D. Fla. Case No. 10-49009) filed
a separate Chapter 11 petition on the same day.

The Debtors are affiliated with Cabi Holdings Inc., the U.S.
development arm of Mexico's Cababie real-estate family. The
bankruptcy filings come on the heels of Cabi Downtown LLC's
chapter 11 (Bankr. S.D. Fla. Case No. 09-27168).  Cabi Downtown
was the owner of the 49-story Everglades on the Bay condominium in
Miami.  The project was sold by Cabi Downtown in November to the
holder of the mortgage under a confirmed Chapter 11 plan.


CAPCO ENERGY: Buyer Remains Liable for Gas Imbalance Claim
----------------------------------------------------------
CAPCO Energy, Inc., et al., v. McMoRan Oil & Gas, LLC, et al.,
Adv. Pro. No. 10-3130 (Bankr. S.D. Tex.), seeks a judgment:
prohibiting McMoRan from asserting any claim in violation of the
confirmed liquidating plan and applicable bankruptcy law; and
enjoining McMoRan from asserting against Hoactzin Partners, LP,
its claims for alleged gas imbalances attributable to the Debtors;
and damages, interest, and attorneys' fees.  The Debtors owned
working interests in mineral production known as "SS 159."  The
Debtors were also the operators of the well.  McMoRan also owned
working interests in SS 159.  After filing for bankruptcy cases,
the Debtors sold their working interests to Hoactzin.

At issue is liability for $336,683.57 of gas imbalance from sales
of production from SS 159.  McMoRan filed a cross-claim against
Hoactzin for the amount allegedly due for Gas Balancing.  Hoactzin
filed a counterclaim against the Debtors for indemnity and
contribution if the Court concluded that Hoactzin was liable to
McMoRan on the Gas Balancing claim.  McMoRan and Hoactzin filed
motions for summary judgment.  The Debtors opposed both.

Bankruptcy Judge Wesley W. Steen awards judgment for the gas
imbalance against Hoactzin -- and partially also against the
Debtors -- in favor of McMoRan and dismissing all other claims.
The Court held that the sale contract unambiguously makes Hoactzin
liable for the debt.  The Court also held that Hoactzin actually
seeks judgment against the Plan Trust, not against the Debtors,
because the Plan Trust has assets and Debtors have no assets.  But
the Plan Trust is not a party to the adversary proceeding.
Awarding Hoactzin judgment against the Plan Trust is not possible
in this adversary proceeding.  But even if the Plan Trust were a
party, the Plan Trust is only liable for allowed claims.  Hoactzin
has not filed a proof of claim, and therefore Hoactzin does not
have an allowed claim against the Plan Trust.  In any event, if
Hoactzin were to prevail on its indemnity and contribution claims
against the Debtors, it would probably be a Pyrrhic victory.
Hoactzin would get a judgment against an entity that has no
assets.

CAPMARK FINANCIAL: Working to File Reorganization Plan Soon
-----------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Capmark Financial Group Inc. won a third extension of
its exclusive right to propose a Chapter 11 plan.  The new
deadline is March 31.  By late April, Capmark will have been in
Chapter 11 for 18 months and won't be eligible for further
exclusivity.

According to the report, the Company said it hoped to file a
reorganization plan this month given the bankruptcy court's
approval of a settlement with the secured lenders in November.
According to Capmark, that target date may be "too ambitious."

Mr. Rochelle relates that Capmark is negotiating a plan with
creditor constituencies.  Capmark described the issues to include
deciding on the "attributes of distribution currencies to be
provided to creditors."  The parties also must decide on the "most
efficient" tax structure.  Ultimately, the plan will comprise 46
separate plans for Capmark and its affiliates.

CATHOLIC CHURCH: Milwaukee to Pay Employee Obligations
------------------------------------------------------
The Archdiocese of Milwaukee sought and obtained authority from
the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of
Wisconsin, at its discretion and in accordance with its stated
policies, to:

  (a) pay certain prepetition employee wages, salaries, leave
      pay, certain benefits and other accrued compensation;

  (b) pay outstanding paychecks;

  (c) make certain payments for which employee payroll
      deductions were made;

  (d) reimburse employees for certain prepetition business
      expenses, if any;

  (e) pay all withholding taxes and employer taxes; and

  (f) pay all taxes and costs incident to the payments.

As of the Petition Date, the Archdiocese employed approximately
120 salaried employees, 57 hourly employees, and six counselors
paid on a commission basis.

In the ordinary course of the Archdiocese's business prior to the
Petition Date, the Employees were owed or had accrued various sums
for wages, salaries, contractual compensation, overtime pay,
holiday pay, vacation time, sick time, benefit programs like group
life and disability, vision and dental benefits, and other accrued
compensation.  As of the Petition Date, the Archdiocese had
approximately $100,000 in accrued wages, salaries, contractual
compensation, overtime pay, and holiday pay.

Most prepetition checks to Employees have been deposited and have
cleared, Daryl L. Diesing, Esq., at Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek S.C.,
in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, tells the Court.  However, he notes,
there are some payroll and expense reimbursement checks issued
prepetition that have not yet been presented for payment or have
not yet cleared the banking system, and accordingly, were not
honored and paid as of the Petition Date.  The Archdiocese
estimates the aggregate amount of the Outstanding Paychecks is
less than $2,500.

All of the deductions for the Employees' taxes, garnishments,
insurance programs, union dues, retirement benefits and others
were current as of the Petition Date, but may not have been
processed or paid in the ordinary course of business, Mr. Diesing
relates.  He adds that as of the Petition Date, some of the
Employees were owed or had accrued various sums for travel,
lodging expenses, priest professional reimbursements, and other
reimbursable expenses, and the Archdiocese had withheld money from
Employees' paychecks on account of various federal, state and
local income, FICA, Medicare and other taxes for remittance to the
appropriate federal, state or local taxing authorities.

Hence, the Archdiocese seeks authority to pay the Employees'
Prepetition Compensation, Outstanding Paychecks, Deductions,
Prepetition Business Expenses, Withholdings and Taxes attributable
to the periods prior to the Petition Date, to or for the benefit,
of the Employees.

Mr. Diesing contends that the payment of the Prepetition
Compensation, Outstanding Paychecks, Deductions, Business
Expenses, Withholdings, and Taxes is necessary to prevent the
immediate and irreparable damage to Employee morale, commitment
and support that are essential to the Archdiocese's efforts to
administer its bankruptcy case; preserve its assets; and pursue
and consummate a reorganization in an expedited manner.  Without
the payment, the Archdiocese's ability to support its mission and
preserve and maximize the value of its assets would be
compromised, he points out.

CATHOLIC CHURCH: Milwaukee Proposes Quarles as Special Counsel
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Archdiocese of Milwaukee seeks permission from the United
States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin to
employ Quarles & Brady LLP as its special counsel, nunc pro tunc
to the Petition Date.

John J. Marek, treasurer and chief financial officer of the
Archdiocese, tells the Court that the Archdiocese wants to employ
Quarles & Brady as its special counsel in connection with the
bankruptcy case to handle litigation matters and pension matters,
which Quarles & Brady historically handles, as well as other
matters that the Archdiocese may encounter, which may not be
appropriately handled by its lead counsel, Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek
S.C., because of potential conflicts of interest.

Whyte Hirschboeck will determine when and under what circumstances
efficiency and expediency of case administration will be served by
referring discrete matters to the special counsel, and pursuant to
that determination, Whyte Hirschboeck will assign matters to the
special counsel in a manner that will avoid duplication of legal
services.

Mr. Marek discloses that Quarles & Brady is the Archdiocese's
regular outside litigation counsel, and currently serves as
defense counsel to the Archdiocese in each of the 12 cases pending
in Milwaukee County Circuit Court, and with respect to Petition
for Certiorari filed on December 23, 2010, with respect to the
question of whether the Archdiocese has insurance coverage for the
claims asserted in the State Court Litigation.

The Archdiocese proposes to pay Quarles & Brady on an hourly basis
at its customary rates, and reimburse the firm of actual,
necessary expenses incurred.  The hourly rates of Quarles & Brady
partners range from $285 to $660, associates range from $210 to
$395, and paralegals from $160 to $230.

The primary members of the firm, who will be handling the
Archdiocese's matters, are:

                                 Hourly
    Professional               Rate
    ------------               ----
    Susan Boswell              $600
    John Rothstein             $515
    Jeff Davis                 $470
    Paul Jacobson              $460
    David Muth                 $400
    Natalie Maciolek           $290
    Patrick Murphy             $245
    Chris Scaperlanda          $220
    Donna Woida                $195
    Jyll Geter                 $185

The estimated amount of Quarles & Brady's fees for the services to
be provided, barring currently unforeseen circumstances and
assuming that the firm's work will consist of assisting on pension
issues and processing appellate issues, is $300,000, relates Mr.
Marek.

John Rothstein, Esq., a partner at Quarles & Brady, assures Judge

CATHOLIC CHURCH: Proposes to Continue Using Health Plan
-------------------------------------------------------
As of the Petition Date, the Archdiocese of Milwaukee employed
approximately 120 salaried employees, 57 hourly employees, and six
counselors paid on a commission basis.  Approximately 159
Employees and their dependents participate in the St. Raphael
Health Plan.  The Archdiocese is the sponsoring employer and a
participating employer in the multi-employer St. Raphael Health
Plan, where each employer is a separate participant.

Other Participating Employers are those Parish Corporations and
Catholic-based social and community service organizations that
operate in the region.  The St. Raphael Health Plan is a
partially-insured health plan for the exclusive benefit of the
employees of the Participating Employers, their spouses and
dependants, and is administered by UnitedHealthcare Insurance
Company, a third party administrator.  Johnson Bank serves as
trustee of the St. Raphael Health Plan Trust, established to
efficiently pay health insurance premiums and claims, as well as
other reasonable expenses associated with the administration of
the St. Raphael Health Plan.

Monthly premiums paid by Participating Employers to the St.
Raphael Health Plan are used to fund prior and future claims.
Consequently, if previous months' claims against the St. Raphael
Health Plan Trust were larger than anticipated, it is possible
that current premiums paid by Participating Employers could pay
for incurred-but-not-reported claims from a previous period,
relates Daryl L. Diesing, Esq., at Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek S.C.,
in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  Thus, he avers, it is conceivable that
some portion of the Archdiocese's monthly premium payments to the
St. Raphael Health Plan Trust made in the postpetition period
could be for prepetition IBNR claims.

Accordingly, the Archdiocese of Milwaukee sought and obtained
authority from the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern
District of Wisconsin to continue its participation in the St.
Raphael Health Plan, and to pay any monthly premiums and costs
incident to its plan participation.

The payment of the St. Raphael Health Plan premiums, which may
include some prepetition IBNR claims, is necessary to prevent the
immediate and irreparable damage to employee morale, Mr. Diesing
asserted.  The Archdiocese represented that it has sufficient
funds on hand to pay monthly premiums to the St. Raphael Health
Plan, as the amounts become due in the ordinary course of its
business.

Official creditors' committees have the right to employ legal and
accounting professionals and financial advisors, at the Debtor's
expense.  They may investigate the Debtor's business and financial
affairs.  Importantly, official committees serve as fiduciaries to
the general population of creditors they represent.  Those
committees will also attempt to negotiate the terms of a
consensual Chapter 11 plan -- almost always subject to the terms
of strict confidentiality agreements with the Debtors and other
core parties-in-interest.  If negotiations break down, the
Committee may ask the Bankruptcy Court to replace management with
an independent trustee.  If the Committee concludes reorganization
of the Debtor is impossible, the Committee will urge the
Bankruptcy Court to convert the Chapter 11 cases to a liquidation
proceeding.

CF PROPERTIES: Wants to Use Building Proceeds to Fund Ch. 11 Case
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California
will convene a hearing on January 12, 2010, at 11:00 a.m., to
consider CF Properties, LLC's request to access the cash
collateral of its secured lenders.

The Debtor will use the cash collateral to pay operation and
maintenance expenses, and payments to the secured creditors on a
current basis.  The Debtor owns five properties, which generate
revenue for payment of expenses.  Four of the properties are
commercial/office buildings located in and around Decatur,
Alabama.  The fifth property is an operating hay farm located in
New Berry Springs, outside Barstow, California.

A full-text copy of the budget for the proposed cash use is

liens on the third property in Decatur, Alabama is held by Wells
Fargo Bank, as successor to Wachovia, and the property in Newberry
Springs is encumbered by a lien held by One West Bank as assignee
from FDIC.

The Debtor believes that it will be able to reach agreement with
its secured creditors and may not need an authorization order, but
is filing the motion to make sure that it has all required
authorization for payment it makes.

The Debtor also requests that the Court permit the maintenance of
separate debtor-in-possession accounts, one for each of the four
Alabama properties, and maintenance of accounts in accordance with
the requirements of the Office of the U.S. Trustee so that the
Debtor's funds will be held in debtor-in-possession accounts at
approved institutions

CHELSEA HEIGHTS: To Lose Asset to Foreclosure; Case Dismissed
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Paul B. Snyder of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Western District of Washington dismissed the Chapter 11 bankruptcy
case of Chelsea Heights, LLC.

The Court found that there is cause for dismissing the Debtor's
case, including that the Debtor's sole significant asset is likely
to be lost via a foreclosure sale and the Debtor has no other
meaningful assets to support a Chapter 11 plan.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on July 5, 2010,
Intervest Mortgage-Investment Company asked the Court to dismiss
the Debtor's case, or in the alternative, that Phillips Real
Estate Services and Matthew Geise continue as a custodian and be
excused from any duty of turnover.  Intervest wanted the Court to
appoint the Pierce County Superior Court receiver, Matthew Geise
of Phillips Real Estate Services, as Chapter 11 trustee.

Intervest said that the Pierce County Superior Court Commissioner
appointed Mr. Geise as receiver on December 2, 2009, to manage the
a certain mixed-use commercial property in Tacoma, Washington,
collect building rents, finish partially completed improvements on
further credit from Intervest, attempt to restore a landlord-
tenant relationship with Multicare, and to file periodic reports
of the receiver's administration and activities pursuant to law.
On December 11, 2009, the Commissioner's order appointing the
receiver was affirmed in its entirety on a motion by Fountain Park
and Chelsea Heights for revision of the order.  The receiver has
been acting and in control of the property since that date.  The
receiver succeeded in restoring the relationship with Multicare,
has capably fulfilled all other duties to date, and has been
reporting regularly to the Superior Court for Pierce County,
during a period in excess of six months.

Aside from its ostensible ownership of the property for a time
before the receiver was appointed in December, 2009, the Debtor is
not known to have any other significant property or business
activity.  The Debtor has no equity in the property.

Intervest is represented by Witherspoon Kelley, P.S.

CROSS BORDER: Doral Energy and Pure Energy Merger Completed
-----------------------------------------------------------
Cross Border Resources, Inc., formerly Doral Energy Corp.,
announced the completion of the business combination between Doral
Energy Corp. and the Pure Energy Group.  The Pure Energy Group
consisted of Pure Gas Partners II, L.P. and Pure Energy Group,
Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Pure L.P. Effective January 4,
2010, the combined entity has changed its' name to Cross Border
Resources, Inc.  The Company will continue to trade under the
ticker symbol DRLYD until January 24, 2011, after which the
Company expects FINRA to assign the Company a new ticker symbol to
reflect the Company's new name.  Cross Border Resources will also
maintain Pure Energy's existing credit facility with Texas Capital
Bank and will seek to amend the terms of the facility in the near
future in order to properly reflect the newly combined assets of
the Company.  Additionally, the Company has relocated its
corporate offices to San Antonio, Texas while maintaining an
operational field office in Midland, Texas.

To complete the combination of Doral and the Pure Energy Group,
Pure L.P. transferred all of its oil and gas assets to Pure Sub.
Doral then acquired Pure Sub in exchange for the issuance to Pure
L.P. of 9,981,536 shares of Doral common stock in addition to the
assumption of $4,050,000 in subordinated debentures, as well as
the assumption of the Pure Energy Group's existing senior debt of
$1,600,000 held by Texas Capital Bank.  After the closing of this

CRYSTAL CATHEDRAL: Court Postpones Examination Hearing to Feb. 9
----------------------------------------------------------------
Deepa Bharath at the Orange County Register reports that a federal
bankruptcy court continued the hearing on Feb. 9, 2011, at 2:00
p.m., to examine salaries and housing allowances for several
insiders at the Crystal Cathedral Ministries.

According to the report, the hearing will likely go into
compensation packages for several insiders including Chief
Financial Officer Fred Southard, founder Robert H. Schuller's
daughter Gretchen Penner and her mother-in-law, Neva Penner
Klaassen.

The Register relates that a U.S. Trustee questioned the need for a
$132,019 housing allowance for Southard.  The trustee, backed by
the official creditors committee, also questioned the need for a
$70,000 annual salary for Gretchen Penner, the youngest of four
Schuller daughters, who produces the "Hour of Power" broadcasts.
An objection was also filed to the $55,000 annual salary for Neyva
Penner Klaassen, who helps schedule musical guests for "Hour of
Power."

The Register, citing papers filed with the court, said that the
Schuller family members received annual salaries totaling more
than $2 million -- about $834,000 in tax-exempt housing
allowances.  The U.S. Trustee specifically questioned the need for
Mr. Southard, who is not a family member, to serve as a chief
financial officer when the church already has a full-time
accounting staff.  Mr. Southard, who draws a $12,000 annual salary
and gets a $132,000 annual housing allowance, has been employed as
the cathedral's CFO since 1978, She adds.

Crystal Cathedral Ministries is a Southern California-based
megachurch founded by television evangelist Robert Schuller.  The
church, known for its television show "The Hour of Power."
Crystal Cathedral filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection
(Bankr. C.D. Calif. 10-24771) on October 18, 2010.  March J.
Winthrop, Esq., at Winthrop Couchot Professional Corporation, in
Newport Beach, California, represents the Debtor.  The Debtor
disclosed $72,872,165 in assets and $48,460,826 in liabilities as
of the Chapter 11 filing.


CYTOMEDIX INC: Restates Q3 2010 Related to Treatment of Warrants
----------------------------------------------------------------
Cytomedix, Inc. filed on January 7, 2011, amendment No. 2 to its
quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended
September 30, 2010, to amend and restate its financial statements
and related disclosures for the three and nine months ended
September 30, 2010.  The restatement has no impact on cash or loss
from operations.

On January 3, 2011, the Company concluded, based on the
recommendation of management, that the previously issued financial
statements for the year ended December 31, 2009, included in the
Company's most recently filed Form 10-K, and each of the quarterly
periods from March 31, 2009, through September 30, 2010, included
in the Company's quarterly reports on Forms 10-Q (collectively,
the "Affected Periods") are no longer reliable because they failed
to incorporate non-cash charges resulting from required
adjustments to certain outstanding warrants.

The following is a brief summary of the accounting errors:

(a) The Company adopted the FASB Emerging Issues Task Force's
   Issue No 07-5, "Determining Whether an Instrument (or Embedded
   Feature) is Indexed to an Entity's own Stock" ("EITF 07-5"),
   now codified in ASC 815-40, as of January 1, 2009.  EITF 07-5
   provides guidance as to assessing equity versus liability
   treatment and classification for equity-linked financial
   instruments, including stock purchase warrants.  Upon the
   adoption of EITF 07-5, the Company did not properly assess the
   impacts of certain non-standard anti-dilution provisions that
   existed in certain then-outstanding stock purchase warrants,
   resulting in equity (versus liability) treatment and
   classification.

(b) In 2009, the Company did not properly assess the impacts of
   certain non-standard anti-dilution provisions that existed in
   stock purchase warrants issued in an August 2009 offering,
   resulting in equity (versus liability) treatment and
   classification.

(c) As a result of the improper accounting treatment of the above-
   mentioned stock purchase warrants, certain offering expenses
   were also misclassified and accounted for incorrectly.

Along with the filing of this Form 10-Q/A, the Company is
concurrently filing amendments to its annual Report on Form 10-K/A
Amendment No. 1 for 2009 and its quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q
for the quarterly periods ended March 31, June 30, and
September 30, 2009, and March 31, and June 30, 2010.  The
amendments to its quarterly reports on Form 10-Q are being filed
to restate its unaudited financial statements and related
financial information for the periods contained in those reports.
The amendment to its annual report on Form 10-K/A Amendment No. 1
is being filed to restate its financial statements for the fiscal
year ended December 31, 2009.

The Company reported a net loss, as restated, of $1,415,021 on
$1,297,447 of revenues for the three months ended September 30,
2010, compared with a net loss of $671,771 on $538,313 of revenues
for the same period of 2009.

The Company's restated balance sheet at September 30, 2010, showed
$9,132,672 in total assets, $8,478,467 in total liabilities, and
stockholders' equity of $654,205.

DIVERSIFIED INDUSTRIES: Alberta Regulator Issues Cease Trade Order
------------------------------------------------------------------
Diversified Industries Ltd. disclosed that on January 6, 2011 a
Cease Trade Order was issued by the Alberta Securities Commission.
The reason for the issuance of the Order was due to the Company
failing to file by the due date its Annual Audited Financial
Statements and the related Management Discussion & Analysis for
the period ending August 31, 2010.  As a result of the Order, the
Company has also been suspending from trading on the TSX Venture
Exchange.

The delay in filing is due, in part, to the recent matters
relating to its Proposal to Creditors under the Bankruptcy and
Insolvency Act, R.S.C. 1985, as further set out in its news
releases of November 24, December 17 and December 28, 2010.  The
Company is working diligently with its auditors to complete the
audit and expects to file the required documentation shortly.

County Judge F. Donald Sokol ruled Lassen County acted properly in
its 2007 assessment of the project proposed for nearly 7,000

development, according to the bee.  The plaintiffs have 60 days to

EDRA BLIXSETH: Beau & Morgan Blixseths' Claims to Continue
----------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Ralph B. Kirscher denied the defendant's motion
for summary judgment filed December 1, 2010, in the suit, Beau
Blixseth and Morgan Blixseth, v. Edra D. Blixseth, Adv. Pro. No.
10-00018 (Bankr. D. Mont.).  In their Complaint, the Plaintiffs
seek to except $2 million from the Debtor's discharge pursuant to
11 U.S.C. Sec. 523(a)(4).

A review of the Plaintiffs' complaint suggests that Plaintiffs'
claim against the Debtor stems from their collective 20% ownership
interest in Blixseth Family Investments, LLC.  Plaintiffs contend
that without proper member notification and in violation of
Blixseth Family Investments, LLC's operating agreement, Defendant
caused Blixseth Family Investments, LLC to borrow $10 million.
Plaintiffs argue that none of the $10 million loan proceeds were
used for the benefit of Blixseth Family Investments, LLC.  Rather,
Plaintiffs maintain that Defendant used the loan proceeds for her
personal benefit.

Neither Plaintiff has filed a Proof of Claim in the Debtor's case.
The Claims Bar Date was October 5, 2009.  The record reflects that
Blixseth Family Investments filed a Proof of Claim in te Debtor's
bankruptcy case on August 6, 2009, asserting an unsecured claim of
$10,749,095.89.

Judge Kirscher held that because Blixseth Family Investments filed
a proof of claim and because Plaintiffs' adversary claim stems
from their ownership interest in Blixseth Family Investments, the
Court cannot -- given the limited undisputed facts asserted by
Defendant -- conclude that all issues of genuine material fact are
resolved in Defendant's favor.  Therefore, summary judgment is not
appropriate.

FANNIE MAE: Judicial Watch Asks to Review Decision to Seize Firm
----------------------------------------------------------------
Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and
prosecutes government corruption, announced that it filed a motion
on December 17, 2010, with the U.S. District Court for the
District of Columbia, asking the court to force the Federal
Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) to abide by the Freedom of
Information Act (FOIA) and release documents related to the
federal government's September 2008 decision to place Fannie Mae
and Freddie Mac into "conservatorship."

Judicial Watch filed its motion pursuant to a July 12, 2010, FOIA
lawsuit filed on behalf of former FDIC and Federal Reserve
employee Vern McKinley as part of Judicial Watch's comprehensive
investigation of the federal government's unprecedented response
to the so-called financial crisis (Vern McKinley v. Federal
Housing Finance Agency, Civil Action No. 10-cv-01165 (HHK)).

According to Judicial Watch's motion, the federal government had
available two primary options to address Fannie and Freddie's
"capital problems" in 2008: receivership and conservatorship.
Conservatorship is a process designed to restore a weak financial
institution to sound financial health while preserving and
conserving assets.  Receivership, the approach initially favored
by then-Treasury Secretary Henry "Hank" Paulson, entails a
liquidation of the institution through the sale of assets and
payment of claimants.  The FHFA chose conservatorship.  Once the
decision was made to place Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac into
conservatorship, Ben S. Bernanke, Chairman of the Board of
Governors of the Federal Reserve System, described "the
catastrophe that would occur if we did not take these actions" in
a meeting with the boards of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Yet, this catastrophe scenario and the justification for choosing
conservatorship over receivership have not been detailed publicly,
Judicial Watch argued in its court motion.

According to Judicial Watch's motion, FHFA continues to improperly
invoke the "attorney work product doctrine" and the "deliberative
process privilege" to keep secret two specific documents that
could shed light on the matter:

[FHFA] improperly claims that [the documents] may be withheld in
their entirety pursuant to the attorney work product doctrine.

[FHFA] currently is withholding two responsive records that are
not alleged to outline types of legal challenges and potential
responses to such challenges. Instead, [FHFA] is withholding in
their entirety two records "that were created for meetings with
senior executives at FHFA to discuss various policy options that
the agency could take with regard to the Enterprises (Fannie Mae
and Freddie Mac) and were provided to these senior policymakers in
order to assist their decision-making" [Emphasis added].

...Because [FHFA] has failed to show that the disclosure of the
material would expose [FHFA's] decision-making process in such a
way as to discourage candid discussion and thereby undermine [the
agency's] ability to perform its functions, FHFA improperly claims
that the... records may be withheld in their entirety pursuant to
the deliberative process privilege.

Judicial Watch suggests the Court should, at minimum, conduct an
in camera review of the documents in question so that it can
determine whether or not the documents should be released to the
public.

With its FOIA lawsuit, Judicial Watch continues to seek the
following information on behalf of Mr. McKinley:
[A]ny and all communications and records concerning or relating to
the assessment of an adverse impact on systemic risk in addressing
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and in particular how the FHFA and the
Department of the Treasury determined that conservatorship was the
preferred option to avoid any systemic risk of placing Fannie Mae
and Freddie Mac into receivership.

Mr. McKinley filed his FOIA request on May 23, 2010. FHFA was
required to respond to the FOIA request by June 28, 2010, but
failed to produce any documents, to demonstrate why documents
should be withheld, or to indicate when a response was
forthcoming.  Judicial Watch, therefore, filed its lawsuit on
July 12, 2010, on behalf of Mr. McKinley.

American taxpayers have spent at least $145 billion dollars on
Fannie and Freddie so far, with analysts estimating the ultimate
cost could be hundreds of billions of dollars more.  The Obama
administration has said that there is no upper limit to the level
of taxpayer support of Fannie and Freddie.

"Thanks to the Fannie/Freddie bailout, the Obama administration
has taken government control of the mortgage market. And taxpayers
are exposed to over $5 trillion in potential liabilities through
the government mortgage giants.  So it is beyond the pale that the
Obama administration continues to choose secrecy over transparency
regarding these bailouts, even as the associated costs continue to
mount at an astonishing rate," said Judicial Watch President Tom
Fitton.  "Simply put, the Obama administration's lack of
transparency on the bailouts is a crisis for government
accountability and the rule of law."

In separate litigation being pursued by Judicial Watch, the Obama
administration maintains that no documents from Fannie and Freddie
are subject to public disclosure under the Freedom of Information
Act.

                         About Fannie Mae

Federal National Mortgage Association, aka Fannie Mae, is a
government-sponsored enterprise that was chartered by U.S.
Congress in 1938 to support liquidity, stability and affordability
in the secondary mortgage market, where existing mortgage-related
assets are purchased and sold.

Fannie Mae has been under conservatorship, with the Federal
Housing Finance Agency acting as conservator, since September 6,
2008.  As conservator, FHFA succeeded to all rights, titles,
powers and privileges of the company, and of any shareholder,
officer or director of the company with respect to the company and
its assets.  The conservator has since delegated specified
authorities to Fannie Mae's Board of Directors and has delegated
to management the authority to conduct day-to-day operations.

The U.S. Department of the Treasury owns Fannie Mae's senior
preferred stock and a warrant to purchase 79.9% of its common
stock, and Treasury has made a commitment under a senior preferred
stock purchase agreement to provide Fannie with funds under
specified conditions to maintain a positive net worth.


FENTURA FIN'L: Ronald Justice Named State Bank Pres. & COO
----------------------------------------------------------
The Board of Directors of Fentura Financial, Inc. recently

President, Donald L. Grill, will remain as CEO of the bank and
continue to serve as President and CEO of Fentura Financial, Inc.,
the parent company of both banks.  These changes will be effective
following regulatory approval which is expected prior to January
31, 2011.

for the same period a year ago.  Fentura reported a net loss of
$5.600 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010, from
$17.871 million for the same period a year ago.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on March 22, 2010,
Crowe Horwath LLP, in Grand Rapids, Mich., 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 incurred net losses in 2009 and 2008, primarily from
higher provisions for loan losses, and non-compliance with the
higher capital requirements of the Consent Orders.

Fentura Financial, Inc., entered into a Written Agreement with
the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago on November 4, 2010.  Among
other things, the Written Agreement requires that the Company
obtain the approval of the FRB prior to paying a dividend;
requires that the Company obtain the approval of the FRB prior to

subordinated debentures or trust preferred securities; prohibits
the Company from purchasing or redeeming any shares of its stock
without the prior written approval of the FRB; requires the
submission of a written capital plan by January 3, 2011, and;
requires the Company to submit cash flow projections for the
Company to the FRB on a quarterly basis.


FIRST SECURITY: Receives Nasdaq Non-Compliance Notice
-----------------------------------------------------
First Security Group, Inc. announced that it received a notice on
January 3, 2011, from the Nasdaq Stock Market that its stock had
closed below $1.00 per share for 30 consecutive business days, and
was therefore not in compliance with Nasdaq Marketplace Rule
5450(a)(1).  The notification was expected given First Security's
stock price at year-end and has no immediate effect on the listing
or trading of the stock on Nasdaq.

In accordance with Marketplace Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), First Security
may regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule if its stock closes
at or above $1.00 for at least ten consecutive business days by
June 29, 2011.  Since closing below $1.00 on December 31, 2010,
First Security's stock has closed above $1.00 per share for five
consecutive business days, and closed on January 7, 2011 at $1.17
per share.  In the event First Security does not regain compliance
with the Bid Price Rule prior to the expiration of the grace
period, it will receive written notification from Nasdaq that its
securities are subject to delisting from the Nasdaq Global Select
Market.  At that time, First Security may be permitted to transfer
its common stock to the Nasdaq Capital Market if its common stock
otherwise satisfies all applicable criteria for listing.

First Security notes that the shareholder approval to issue up to
$50 million worth of its common stock at a discount to market
value expired on December 31, 2010.  First Security believes that
this shareholder approval likely put negative pressure on the
stock through December 31, 2010, and that its expiration is a
contributing factor to the stock price closing above $1.00 per
share each day subsequent to December 31, 2010.  First Security
continues to consider a variety of strategic alternatives intended
to achieve and maintain elevated capital ratios.

Recent additions to First Security's Board of Directors, the
hiring of a new President and Chief Operating Officer, and the
continued implementation of strategic initiatives are expected to
enhance FSGBank's overall health and competitive position, and the
management team believes that this will be reflected ultimately in
First Security's stock value.  In recent quarters, strategic
initiatives to position First Security for short-term stability
and long-term success have been focused in the areas of capital,
liquidity, asset quality, credit administration and management.

First Security will actively monitor the bid price of its stock
and will consider available options to resolve the deficiency and
regain compliance with the Nasdaq requirements.  First Security
intends to maintain its listing on Nasdaq.

Consent Order, within 120 days of the effective date of the Order,
the Bank is required to achieve and thereafter maintain total
capital at least equal to 13 percent of risk-weighted assets and

information in the disclosure statement explaining the Debtor's
proposed Plan of Liquidation.

the extent not converted to cash or other proceeds as of the
effective date, will be sold or otherwise disposed of by the
liquidating trustee after the effective date, with all net cash
proceeds to be distributed to holders of allowed claims.

As reported in the November 19, 2010 edition of the Troubled
Company Reporter, treatment under the Plan is as follows: holders
of administrative claims, priority tax claims, secured claims and
other priority claims will be paid in full in cash on the
effective date.  Holders of general unsecured claims will receive
their pro rata share of available cash soon as practical.  Holders
of FirstFed Financial's common stock will receive no distribution
under the Plan, and all common stock interests will be canceled
and void.

FRASER PAPERS: Creditors Decline to Support Restructuring Plan
--------------------------------------------------------------
Fraser Papers Inc. and its subsidiaries disclosed that a meeting
of creditors was held in Toronto.  The Meeting was to vote on the
consolidated plan of compromise or arrangement filed with the
Ontario Court overseeing its restructuring proceedings under the
Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act.

Despite the support of PricewaterhouseCoopers, the court-appointed
Monitor, the Company did not receive the sufficient support from
creditors at the Meeting.  As a result, the Company will not be
implementing the Plan.

Under criteria set out in the CCAA, the Plan required approval of
the majority of creditors in number and 66 2/3% by dollar value of
claims filed by creditors.  The Company reported that 98.4% of
creditors voted in favour of the Plan.  However only 41.7% of
claims based on dollar value supported the Plan, which is below
the required level for Plan Approval.

During the meeting, the Monitor indicated that implementation of
the Plan was expected to result in estimated recoveries of
approximately 19%-20%, on an undiscounted basis.

"We worked with our stakeholders in an effort to solicit support
for the Plan, which provides better value to creditors than any of
the alternatives available to the Company," said Glen McMillan,
Chief Restructuring Officer of the Company.  "Unfortunately, there
are a small number of large creditors who have decided to vote
against the Plan to the detriment of the majority of creditors who
would have preferred to see this Plan move forward".

Subject to the availability of funding, the Company will continue
to realize upon its remaining assets for the benefit of all
stakeholders and will consider all options in connection with its
current CCAA proceedings or any other proceedings.

FREDDIE MAC: Judicial Watch Asks to Review Decision to Seize Firm
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and
prosecutes government corruption, announced that it filed a motion
on December 17, 2010, with the U.S. District Court for the
District of Columbia, asking the court to force the Federal
Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) to abide by the Freedom of
Information Act (FOIA) and release documents related to the
federal government's September 2008 decision to place Fannie Mae
and Freddie Mac into "conservatorship."

Judicial Watch filed its motion pursuant to a July 12, 2010, FOIA
lawsuit filed on behalf of former FDIC and Federal Reserve
employee Vern McKinley as part of Judicial Watch's comprehensive
investigation of the federal government's unprecedented response
to the so-called financial crisis (Vern McKinley v. Federal
Housing Finance Agency, Civil Action No. 10-cv-01165 (HHK)).

According to Judicial Watch's motion, the federal government had
available two primary options to address Fannie and Freddie's
"capital problems" in 2008: receivership and conservatorship.
Conservatorship is a process designed to restore a weak financial
institution to sound financial health while preserving and
conserving assets.  Receivership, the approach initially favored
by then-Treasury Secretary Henry "Hank" Paulson, entails a
liquidation of the institution through the sale of assets and
payment of claimants.  The FHFA chose conservatorship.  Once the
decision was made to place Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac into
conservatorship, Ben S. Bernanke, Chairman of the Board of
Governors of the Federal Reserve System, described "the
catastrophe that would occur if we did not take these actions" in
a meeting with the boards of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Yet, this catastrophe scenario and the justification for choosing
conservatorship over receivership have not been detailed publicly,
Judicial Watch argued in its court motion.

According to Judicial Watch's motion, FHFA continues to improperly
invoke the "attorney work product doctrine" and the "deliberative
process privilege" to keep secret two specific documents that
could shed light on the matter:

[FHFA] improperly claims that [the documents] may be withheld in
their entirety pursuant to the attorney work product doctrine.

[FHFA] currently is withholding two responsive records that are
not alleged to outline types of legal challenges and potential
responses to such challenges. Instead, [FHFA] is withholding in
their entirety two records "that were created for meetings with
senior executives at FHFA to discuss various policy options that
the agency could take with regard to the Enterprises (Fannie Mae
and Freddie Mac) and were provided to these senior policymakers in
order to assist their decision-making" [Emphasis added].

...Because [FHFA] has failed to show that the disclosure of the
material would expose [FHFA's] decision-making process in such a
way as to discourage candid discussion and thereby undermine [the
agency's] ability to perform its functions, FHFA improperly claims
that the... records may be withheld in their entirety pursuant to
the deliberative process privilege.

Judicial Watch suggests the Court should, at minimum, conduct an
in camera review of the documents in question so that it can
determine whether or not the documents should be released to the
public.

With its FOIA lawsuit, Judicial Watch continues to seek the
following information on behalf of Mr. McKinley:
[A]ny and all communications and records concerning or relating to
the assessment of an adverse impact on systemic risk in addressing
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and in particular how the FHFA and the
Department of the Treasury determined that conservatorship was the
preferred option to avoid any systemic risk of placing Fannie Mae
and Freddie Mac into receivership.

Mr. McKinley filed his FOIA request on May 23, 2010. FHFA was
required to respond to the FOIA request by June 28, 2010, but
failed to produce any documents, to demonstrate why documents
should be withheld, or to indicate when a response was
forthcoming.  Judicial Watch, therefore, filed its lawsuit on
July 12, 2010, on behalf of Mr. McKinley.

American taxpayers have spent at least $145 billion dollars on
Fannie and Freddie so far, with analysts estimating the ultimate
cost could be hundreds of billions of dollars more.  The Obama
administration has said that there is no upper limit to the level
of taxpayer support of Fannie and Freddie.

"Thanks to the Fannie/Freddie bailout, the Obama administration
has taken government control of the mortgage market. And taxpayers
are exposed to over $5 trillion in potential liabilities through
the government mortgage giants.  So it is beyond the pale that the
Obama administration continues to choose secrecy over transparency
regarding these bailouts, even as the associated costs continue to
mount at an astonishing rate," said Judicial Watch President Tom
Fitton.  "Simply put, the Obama administration's lack of
transparency on the bailouts is a crisis for government
accountability and the rule of law."

In separate litigation being pursued by Judicial Watch, the Obama
administration maintains that no documents from Fannie and Freddie
are subject to public disclosure under the Freedom of Information
Act.

                     About Freddie Mac

Based in McLean, Virginia, the Federal Home Loan Mortgage
Corporation, known as Freddie Mac (OTCBB: FMCC) --
http://www.FreddieMac.com/-- was established by Congress in
1970 to provide liquidity, stability and affordability to the
nation's residential mortgage markets.  Freddie Mac supports
communities across the nation by providing mortgage capital to
lenders.  Over the years, Freddie Mac has made home possible for
one in six homebuyers and more than five million renters.

Freddie Mac is under conservatorship and is dependent upon the
continued support of Treasury and FHFA to continue operating its
business.  The Company received $6.1 billion and $30.8 billion in
June 2009 and March 2009, respectively, pursuant to draw requests
that FHFA submitted to Treasury on the Company's behalf to address
the deficits in the Company's net worth as of March 31, 2009, and
December 31, 2008, respectively.  As a result of funding of the
draw requests, the aggregate liquidation preference on the senior
preferred stock owned by Treasury increased from $14.8 billion as
of December 31, 2008, to $51.7 billion on December 31, 2009.

Fitch Ratings has affirmed the long-term Issuer Default Ratings,
senior debt ratings and short-term IDRs of Freddie Mac at 'AAA'
and 'F1+', respectively.  In addition, Freddie's Support Rating of
'1' and Support Floor of 'AAA' have also been affirmed.  The
Rating Outlook remains Stable.

GENERAL GROWTH: Finish Line Seeks Payment of Cure Amounts
---------------------------------------------------------
The Finish Line, Inc., and The Finish Line Man Alive, Inc., ask
the  U.S. Bankruptcy Court to compel the reorganized General
Growth Properties and its affiliates to (i) comply with the orders
confirming their plans of reorganization; and (ii) pay the
outstanding cure amounts under Finish Line's real property leases
assumed under the Plan.

Gerald DiConza, Esq., at DiConza Law, P.C., in New York --
gdiconza@dlawteam.com -- asserts that the Reorganized Debtors
have assumed the Leases in December 2009 and they have not paid
the cure claims.  Indeed, as of December 21, 2010, the total cure
claims owing under the assumed leases exceed $3.3 million, he
stresses.

Mr. DiConza further contends that the Reorganized Debtors were
required to promptly resolve any disputes over cure amounts with
Finish Line by either paying Finish Line (a) in cash on the
Effective Date, (b) on other terms and dates agreed to by the
parties, or (c) pursuant to further Court order.  Notwithstanding
the requirements of Section 365(b) of the Bankruptcy Code and the
Confirmation Order, the Reorganized Debtors did not begin to
confer with Finish Line until recently and have not been willing
to satisfy the Finish Line Cure Claims in full, he points out.

GENERAL GROWTH: Walmart Purchases Former Lockport Mall Site
-----------------------------------------------------------
Walmart inked a deal to purchase the former Lockport Mall site
with Lockport Mall LLC, a company formed by General Growth
Properties, Inc. ("New GGP"), for $3.95 million, according to
Thomas J. Prohaska of Buffalo News.

Walmart has also obtained the necessary building and demolition
permits from the Town of Lockport, Michigan for the construction
of a 185,209-square foot supercenter, the report noted.  The date
on the construction of the Walmart supercenter is yet to be known,
Mr. Prohaska noted.

According to the report, the deal calls for New GGP to arrange for
the demolition of the former mall, except for the Bon-Ton store.
Bon-Ton will stay as a stand-alone store, sharing a parking lot
with the new Walmart, the report stated.

Moreover, Lockport Mall LLC will remain as the Bon-Ton's landlord
and New GGP also remains owner of three outparcels which host an
Arby's, a Wendy's and a First Niagara Bank branch, the report
stated.

Mr. Prohaska stated that the Walmart supercenter, a combination
discount store and supermarket, will replace an existing Walmart
discount store around that area.

To that end, the deal bars New GGP from placing any grocery store,
discount store, wholesale club or pharmacy on the property it
still owns at the mall site, the report disclosed.  New GGP is
also prohibited to use the property for theaters, nightclub,
health clubs, spas or any business that sells alcoholic drinks,
the report wrote.

However, the Walmart project is facing new opposition from a group
of citizens who is threatening to sue the Town of Lockport for the
permits issued to Walmart, according to a separate report from Mr.
Prohaska of Buffalo News.  The group, represented by Daniel A.
Spitzer, Esq., alleged that the permits issued were illegal,
Buffalo News related.

Mr. Spitzer argued that the approvals granted by the Planning
Board in November 2007 have expired and Walmart can not go forward
without reapplying for those permits, Buffalo News cited.  In
anticipation to that angle being raised, the board passed a
resolution on November 12, 2008, declaring that the one-year
period to use the approvals would not start until all the
litigation in the case had concluded, the report stated.

The litigation involving the Walmart project ended last year, as
previously reported.  According to Buffalo News, Mr. Spitzer was
not impressed by the board's argument, calling the 2008 resolution
illegal.  Town attorney Daniel E. Seaman, Esq., did not comment on
potential litigation, Buffalo News added.

In other news, Howard Hughes Corp., the owner of South Street
Seaport, confirmed reports that the company is reviving talks for
plans at the mall, www.downtownexpress.com wrote.

THHC President Grant Herlitz said the company is not at liberty to
release information on the plans until they are finalized, the
report noted.  However, the company is in talks with the city and
various architects and consultants, the report stated.

In a related matter, a Bodies exhibit housed at the South Street
Seaport has closed for renovation and will reopen February 4,
Julie Shapiro of www.DNAinfo.com reported, citing Premier
Exhibitions, parent company of the exhibit.

"Bodies . . . The Exhibition" features preserved cadavers, posed
in athletic positions and was supposed to last for only six months
when it opened in November 2005, according to John Zaller, vice
president of creative and design for Premier Exhibitions, Ms.
Shapiro noted.  Due to public demand, the Seaport extended the
exhibition multiple times, Mr. Zaller related, the report added.

GENERAL MOTORS: New GM Not Liable for Deutsch Wrongful Death
------------------------------------------------------------
General Motors LLC asked the Bankruptcy Court to determine that
New GM did not assume the liabilities associated with a tort
action in which a car accident took place before the date upon
which New GM acquired the business of Old GM, but the accident
victim died thereafter.  Bankruptcy Judge Robert E. Gerber held
that the issue turns on the construction of the documents under
which New GM agreed to assume liabilities from Old GM -- which
provided that New GM would assume liabilities relating to
"accidents or incidents" "first occurring on or after the Closing
Date" -- and in that connection, whether a liability of this
character is or is not one of the types of liabilities that New GM
thereby agreed to assume.  Upon consideration of those documents,
Judge Gerber concluded that the liability in question was not
assumed by New GM.  However, if a proof of claim was not
previously filed against Old GM with respect to the accident in
question, the Court will permit one to be filed within 30 days of
the entry of the order implementing the Court's decision, without
prejudice to rights to appeal this determination.

In June 2007, Beverly Deutsch was severely injured in an accident
while she was driving a 2006 Cadillac sedan.  She survived the car
accident, but in August 2009, she died from the injuries that she
previously had sustained.  In January 2010, the Estate of Beverly
Deutsch, the Heirs of Beverly Deutsch, and Sanford Deutsch filed a
Third Amended Complaint against New GM and others in a state court
lawsuit in California, claiming damages arising from the accident,
the injuries which Beverly sustained, and her wrongful death.  The
current complaint superseded the original complaint in the Deutsch
Estate Action, which was filed in April 2008, before the filing of
Old GM's chapter 11 case.

A copy of the Court's January 5, 2011 decision is available

GENERAL MOTORS: Mulls Reacquiring Part of Former GMAC Unit
----------------------------------------------------------
Sharon Terlep, writing for The Wall Street Journal, reports that
three people familiar with the situation said General Motors Co.
is revisiting the idea of buying back part of its former GMAC auto
loan business, half a year after it acquired a subprime loan
company to help fill the role of an in-house lender.

According to the Journal, GM executives are weighing the idea
of a new approach to Ally Financial, the renamed GMAC, to give GM
dealers better access to wholesale credit.

The Journal relates six months ago Ally turned down GM's
$5 billion offer for its wholesale business.  Instead, GM
purchased Americredit Corp. for $3.5 billion but that lender, now
part of GM Financial, is primarily in subprime consumer financing.

The Journal relates that people familiar with the situation said
so far, GM hasn't approached Ally Financial about the potential
for a purchase, and there is no indication whether the lender
would be open to a proposal.

The U.S. government owns 74% of Ally and 26.5% of GM.  Sources
told the Journal the government could play a role in any such
arrangement.

One source also said GM Chief Executive Daniel Akerson, a former
private equity deal maker, is in favor of a renewed approach to
Ally.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on September 20,
2010, Semple, Marchal & Cooper, LLP, in Phoenix, Ariz., expressed

and liquidity.


GREENBRIER COS: Incurs $2.3MM Net Loss in Qtr. Ended Nov. 30
------------------------------------------------------------
The Greenbrier Companies reported results for its fiscal first
quarter ended November 30, 2010.  Revenue for the first quarter of
2011 was $201.4 million, up from $171.7 million in the prior
year's first quarter.  EBITDA for the quarter was $16.7 million,
or 8.3% of revenue, compared to $14.8 million, or 8.6% of revenue
in the first quarter of 2010.

The Company reported a net loss of $2.3 million for the quarter
ended November 30, 2010, compared with a net loss of $3.2 million
during the same period of the prior year.

The Company's balance sheet as of November 30, 2010, showed
$1.1 billion in total assets, $812.7 million in total assets and
$296.5 million in total equity.

Results for the 2011 first quarter include a gain of $1.1 million,
net of taxes, or approximately $0.05 per diluted share, from
insurance proceeds received by the Company associated with a fire
in January 2009 at one of the Company's wheel services facilities.

William A. Furman, president and chief executive officer, said,
"Our quarterly results are in line with previously disclosed
expectations.  We continue to benefit from a recovery in the
demand for new railcars.  Since August 31, we have received orders
for 6,000 new railcars, with an aggregate value of approximately
$400 million, demonstrating our ability to capture business as the
new cycle begins.  This new demand is driven in part by an ongoing
improvement in new rail traffic.  According to the Association of
American Railroads, calendar 2010 North American general freight
car loadings were up 9.4% and intermodal loadings were up 14.7%
compared to 2009.  To address new orders and our growing backlog,
we will ramp up production rates beginning this month and plan to
open an additional production line in June of 2011.  Currently, we
anticipate delivering about 9,000 - 10,000 new railcars in fiscal
2011."

Furman concluded, "In fiscal 2011, we will continue to focus on
improving gross margins, executing on operational efficiencies,
managing for cash flow and liquidity, leveraging our integrated
business model and returning to sustained profitability.  Our
recent successful stock offering further strengthens our balance
sheet and liquidity and positions us to participate in the market
upturn while continuing to de-leverage the Company."

Rating for The Greenbrier Companies to SGL-3 from SGL-4.  At the
same time, Moody's affirmed the company's existing ratings,

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: Former Bankr. Judge Named Chapter 11 Trustee
-------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that James L. Garrity, a former U.S. Bankruptcy Judge in
Manhattan, was named by the U.S. Trustee to serve as the Chapter
11 trustee for GSC Group Inc.

Mr. Rochelle relates that Mr. Garrity, now a partner with Shearman
& Sterling LLP, was a bankruptcy judge from 1991 to 1999.  His
appointment is subject to approval by U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Arthur
J. Gonzalez, who presides over the GSC case.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on January 7, 2011,
Judge Gonzalez ordered the appointment of an independent trustee
to take over GSC Group after some of its lenders cast doubts on
the trustworthiness of the investment firm's management.
Jacqueline Palank, writing for Dow Jones Newswires, reported that
the minority lenders, which hold a noncontrolling stake in the
$246 million in secured debt on GSC's books, had accused GSC of
colluding with proposed buyer and controlling lender Black Diamond
Capital Management LLC to ensure that the company wound up in
Black Diamond's hands under a $235 million deal.  Black Diamond's
funds hold a majority of the $206.6 million owing to secured
lenders.

Black Diamond won the auction for GSC, but the Company later
withdrew the motion for approval of the sale.

The objecting lenders included Credit Agricole Corporate and
Investment Bank and General Electric Capital Corp.

INTEGRITY HOME: Denies Bid for Sanctions Against DMA
----------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Catharina R. Aron denied the request of Rhenada
Davis Morris for sanctions against the North Carolina Department
of Health and Human Services Division of Medical Assistance for
alleged violation of the automatic stay and an award of attorney
fees in connection with the matter.  After considering the
evidence on record and the arguments of counsel, the Court held
that the DMA did not violate the automatic stay.  Conversely, the
governmental regulatory exception of 11 U.S.C. Sec. 362(b)(4)
permitted the DMA to enroll the Debtor into the Prepayment Claims
Review process due to the Debtor's failure to comply with agency
requirements.

The Court will conduct a hearing on confirmation of the Plan on
January 31, 2011, at 11:00 a.m.

Classes 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 of Claims and the Class 8 Equity
Interests are impaired and therefore are entitled to vote on the
Plan.  Class 1 is not impaired under the Plan and is therefore not
entitled to vote on the Plan.

Pursuant to the Plan terms, on the Effective Date of the Plan, all
property of the Debtors and of their Estates will vest in each of
the Reorganized Debtors free and clear of liens, claims and
encumbrances, except as otherwise provided by the terms of this
Plan.  There shall be no substantive consolidation.

The principals of Vintage Park Investments, LLC, will collectively
contribute $1 million (Equity Infusion) to Reorganized IRH in

operations and enter into such transactions as they deem
advisable, free of any restriction or limitation imposed under any
provision of the Bankruptcy Code, except to the extent otherwise

The Plan proposes the following treatment for the various claims
and interests in the Debtor:

        Reorganized IRH will make monthly principal and interest
        payments (equal to the prime rate, plus .75%) for 84
        months based on a 30 year amortization schedule.  The
        entire principal balance due will be paid at the end of
        the 84th month.  The deficiency balance of Capmark's claim
        will be treated as a Class 4 Claim under Section 4.4 of
        the Plan.  The Class 2 Claim is impaired.

Class 3. Allowed Vendor Unsecured Claims of $2,500 or Less.
        Holders of Class 3 Claims will be paid in full without

        to ten percent (10%) of their Allowed Claims, plus new
        Unsecured Promissory Notes for the full remaining balance
        of their Allowed Class 4 Claims.  Maturity of the new
        Unsecured Promissory Notes will be earlier of the sale of
        refinance of the Property or 7 years from the Plan's
        Effective Date.  There will be no amortization payments on
        the new Unsecured Promissory Notes until until maturity.
        The Class 4 Claims are impaired.

        Under Option 1, the term of the Wrightwood Note will be
        extended until December 31, 2017, and Wrightwood will
        receive no payment with respect to the Wrightwood Note
        until Capmark Bank's Class 2 and Class 4 Claims are paid
        in full in accordance with the terms of the Plan.

        Under Option 2, in full and final satisfaction of its
        allowed claim, the Holder of the Allowed Class 5 Claim
        will receive shares of New Partnership Interests totaling
        49% of the outstanding shares with (i) a Preferred return
        of $20,000/month, payable only from excess funds as solely
        determined by the Reorganized Debtors and (ii) in the
        event the Property is sold or refinanced, will be fully
        redeemable by the Reorganized IRH in the amount of

        4 Allowed Unsecured Vendor Claim.  The Class 6 Claims are
        impaired.

Class 7. Allowed Claims of Affiliates.  The Holders of Class 7
        Claims will be permitted to offset any amount due the
        Debtors.  Otherwise, the remaining balance, if any, will
        be subordinated to the payment in full of all Claims in
        Classes 1 through 6.  The Class 7 Claims are impaired.

against him.  A referee appointed pursuant to Rule 14, Rules on

KS REALTY: Court Rejects Maxfield's Claim for Commissions
---------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge J. Michael Deasy issued an order sustaining KS
Realty, Inc. and Pointe Luck, LLC's objection to the proof of
claim filed by Maxfield Real Estate, Inc.  Maxfield asserts a
claim for $584,000 based on its alleged entitlement to a
commission from the post-confirmation sale of the Debtors' Grand
View Commons subdivision property located in Wolfeboro, New
Hampshire.  The Court held that pursuant to New Hampshire law,
because a 2008 purchase and sale agreement did not close by the
deadline set forth in the agreement nor by July 15, 2009, the end
of the six-month protection period under the Agreement, Maxfield
is not entitled to any commission under the Agreement.  For that
reason, the Claim is unenforceable against the Debtors and
property of the Debtors and will be disallowed under 11 U.S.C.
Sec. 502(b)(1).

Pursuant to the Plan, Debtor will continue to operate the Office
Property post-confirmation.  The 37,410 sq. ft. Office Property is

before the Berkadia Due Date).

The Unimproved Property will be sold to Bordeau Communities, LLC,
for the sum of $5,500,000.  Said sale will close escrow on or

Vegas Railway Express, Inc., a Nevada corporation.

The sole purpose of the amendment is to provide the audited
historical financial statements of the business acquired and the
unaudited pro forma financial information, which financial
statements and information were not included in the original

                      About Las Vegas Railway

Las Vegas, Nev.-based Las Vegas Railway Express, Inc., formerly
Liberty Capital Asset Management, Inc. was formed March 9, 2007,
as Corporate Outfitters, a development stage company.  On
November 3, 2008, with a share exchange, asset purchase agreement
the Company acquired Liberty Capital Asset Management, a Nevada
corporation, formed in July of 2008 as a holding company for all
the assets of CD Banc LLC in contemplation of the company going
public via a reverse merger into a publicly trading corporation.

CD Banc LLC was formed in 2003 as a Nevada limited liability
corporation with the purpose of acquiring real estate assets and
holding them for long-term appreciation.

The Company acquired Las Vegas Railway Express (LVRE) in
January 2010 and began its operations as the primary business of
the Company.  The Company subsequently changed its name from Las
Vegas Railway Express, to Las Vegas Railway Express, Inc., and is
traded under the symbol XTRN.OB.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2010, showed $1.32 million
in total assets, $2.09 million in total liabilities, and a
stockholders' deficit of $770,059.

Hamilton, PC, in Denver, Colo, expressed substantial doubt about
the Company's ability to continue as a going concern, following
its results for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2010.  The
independent auditors noted that the Company has suffered recurring
losses from operations.

For the quarter ended, June 30, 2010, there were no revenues
associated with the railcar operations.  The Company has an
accumulative deficit of $8.49 million through June 30, 2010.
Although a substantial portion of the Company's cumulative net
loss is attributable to discontinued operations, management
believes that it will need additional equity or debt financing to
be able to sustain profitability.


LIONS GATE: Icahn Opposes Effort to Continue Suit
-------------------------------------------------
Linda Sandler at Bloomberg News reports that Carl Icahn asked a
judge for a second time to dismiss a lawsuit by Lions Gate
Entertainment Corp., saying the studio's claims that he tried to
interfere with its plans became moot when his tender offer for the
company expired.

According to the report, Mr. Icahn, chairman of Icahn Enterprises
LP in New York, argued in a January 6 filing in U.S. District
Court in New York that he didn't violate any law by not disclosing
"tentative or inchoate plans" he might have had about merging the
Vancouver-based studio and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc.

Lions Gate said Dec. 30 it wants to continue its lawsuit against
Mr. Icahn, forcing him to pay damages for interfering with its
plans.  The New York financier should reveal details of a "secret"
agreement he had with MGM creditors, it said in a court filing.

Lions Gate also wants to know about a "side deal" Mr. Icahn
allegedly struck with another large shareholder of the studio,
Mark Cuban, about buying his shares.  According to Lions Gate, Mr.
Icahn offered Mr. Cuban, co-founder of the TV network HDNet and
owner of the Dallas Mavericks basketball team, "special
consideration" for his agreement to tender a 5.4% Lions Gate to
Mr. Icahn as the billionaire tried to acquire the studio.

According to Bloomberg, Mr. Icahn said January 6 his company
"vigorously denies that it had any concrete plans regarding MGM or
any understanding or agreement with Cuban."  Lions Gate knew long
ago about Mr. Icahn's holding of MGM debt, and that Mr. Cuban
might sell his shares to a "reliable buyer," he said.

The case is Lions Gate Entertainment Corp., v. Icahn, 10-CV-8169
(S.D.N.Y.).

                     About Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer

MGM on November 3, 2010, filed a Chapter 11 petition and a
prepackaged plan of reorganization, which is based on a
contribution of assets by Spyglass Entertainment.  MGM rejected a
competing bid by Lions Gate, which offered about $1.7 billion in
stock and debt to MGM creditors, representing a 55% stake in the
combined company.

Mr. Icahn, who is Lions Gate's largest shareholder and owns about
10% of MGM's debt, in October, asked MGM creditors to reject
approval Spyglass Prepackaged Plan when votes were solicited
before the bankruptcy filing.  However, on November 3, Icahn
announced that he is supporting the Prepackaged Plan after
reaching a deal with MGM.  The settlement with Icahn required
amendments to the Plan to provide that MGM will not acquire the
Cypress film library and, according to Mr. Icahn, "will have a
strong corporate governance structure, including the ability of
stockholders to call special meetings, and there will be
restrictions on poison pills and staggered boards."  Mr. Icahn
will also have the right to designate a member on the MGM Board
following its emergence from bankruptcy.

LOCAL INSIGHT: Can Access $25 Million Financing on Final Basis
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Kevin Gross of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District
of Delaware authorized Local Insight Media Holdings Inc. and its
debtor-affiliates to access $25 million in secured postpetition
financing on superpriority priming lien basis from JPMorgan Chase
Bank, N.A., as administrative agent; and use cash collateral of
prepetition secured lenders.

As reported in the Nov. 26, 2010 edition of the Troubled Company
Reporter, Regatta Investor LLC and its direct and indirect
subsidiaries guaranty the Debtors' obligations in respect of the
DIP Financing.

As of the Petition Date, the Debtors were indebted to the
prepetition secured lenders:

   i) in the aggregate principal amount of not less than
      $337,000,300 in respect of loans made under the prepetition
      credit agreement;

  ii) $19,000 in undrawn available amounts under the letters of
      credit issued pursuant to the prepetition credit agreement;
      and

iii) amounts owed under Specified Hedge Agreements with the
      qualified counterparties plus accrued and unpaid interest
      and fees with respect to the obligations.

The Debtors would use the DIP financing and the cash collateral to
continue operations of their businesses.  The Debtors were unable
to obtain financing on more favorable terms from sources other
than the DIP lenders.

As adequate protection for any diminution in value of the lenders'
collateral, the Debtors will grant the prepetition secured lenders
(i) replacement liens on all intangible and tangible property in
which the loan parties have an interest; (ii) superpriority
administrative expense claim status, subject to certain carve out
expenses.

As adequate protection to the interest of prepetition agent and
secured lenders in their collateral, the Debtor will grant
adequate protection liens on all of the DIP collateral.

Official creditors' committees have the right to employ legal and
accounting professionals and financial advisors, at the Debtor's
expense.  They may investigate the Debtor's business and financial
affairs.  Importantly, official committees serve as fiduciaries to
the general population of creditors they represent.  Those
committees will also attempt to negotiate the terms of a
consensual Chapter 11 plan -- almost always subject to the terms
of strict confidentiality agreements with the Debtors and other
core parties-in-interest.  If negotiations break down, the
Committee may ask the Bankruptcy Court to replace management with
an independent trustee.  If the Committee concludes reorganization
of the Debtor is impossible, the Committee will urge the
Bankruptcy Court to convert the Chapter 11 cases to a liquidation
proceeding.

MAMMOTH LAKES, CA: Fears Financial Ruin After Legal Judgment
------------------------------------------------------------
Louis Sahagun at The Los Angeles Times reports that an appellate
court upheld a $30-million judgment against High Sierra ski resort
Mammoth Lakes, leaving civic leaders scrambling to avoid financial
catastrophe.

The Los Angeles Times says an appeals court last month ruled that
it must pay $30 million in a breach-of-contract lawsuit.  That's
about twice the size of the town's annual budget

The L.A. Times relates that residents reacted bitterly to the
breach-of-contract judgment, blaming the town of Mammoth Lake's
five-member council and its staffers for the fiscal dilemma that
has overshadowed the snowiest winter in memory in the scenic Mono
County community of 7,500 year-round residents.

According to the report, the Town Council last week retained a law
firm that specializes in appellate litigation and also is
developing settlement negotiation options, seeking legal advice on
municipal bankruptcy and studying controversial proposals to raise
taxes and make cuts in basic services to pay off the judgment,
which bears a 7% annual interest rate.

Because few petitions are heard by the California Supreme Court,
prospects for a favorable review of the appellate court decision
are considered slim, according to the L.A. Times.

Mammoth Lakes is a town in Mono County, California, the county's
only incorporated community. It is located 9 miles northwest of
Mount Morrison, at an elevation of 7,880 feet.  The population was
7,093 at the 2000 census.


MIDDLEBROOK PHARMACEUTICALS: Liquidation Plan Declared Effective
----------------------------------------------------------------
MiddleBrook Pharmaceuticals' modified Plan of Liquidation became
effective.

BankruptcyData.com reports that as of January 6, 2011, the Company
had one share of common stock issued and outstanding.  Under the
terms of the Modified Plan, all shares of the Company's common
stock were cancelled on the effective date, and one share was
issued to Ronald L. Glass: the plan administrator.  No shares of
common stock will be issued with respect to claims or interests
under the Plan.

Dow Jones' Small Cap reports that the Chapter 11 plan of
liquidation took effect Jan. 3, which bankruptcy attorney Sam J.
Alberts said means creditors could start receiving distributions
as soon as this month.  The report relates Mr. Alberts, who
represented the official committee of Middlebrook's unsecured
creditors, attributed the bankruptcy's positive outcome to the
company's "very good assets" that resulted in San Diego-based
Victory Pharma Inc.'s $17.3 million purchase this summer, as well
as Middlebrook's relatively quick trip through bankruptcy.

"There was a pressure to get the case done as quickly as possible
and in an efficient manner," Mr. Alberts told Dow Jones' in an
interview.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on August 3, 2010,
MiddleBrook Pharmaceuticals, Inc., completed on July 30, 2010, the
sale of substantially all of its assets to Victory Pharma, Inc.,
pursuant to the Asset Purchase Agreem ent, dated May 14, 2010, by
and between the Company and Victory. The Sale, which was conducted
under the provisions of Section 363 of the Bankruptcy Code, was
approved by the Bankruptcy Court on July 28, 2010.

On November 4, 2010, MiddleBrook filed the Debtor's Plan of
Liquidation and the Disclosure Statement for the Debtor's Plan of
Liquidation with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Delaware.

MMFX TECH: Needs More Time to File Schedules and Statements
-----------------------------------------------------------
MMFX Canadian Holdings Inc. and its debtor-affiliates ask the Hon.
Robert Kwan of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central District
of California to extend the time to file their schedules of assets
and liabilities, and statements of financial affairs for an
additional 21 days beyond the standard 14-day period, through and
including Jan. 17, 2011.

A hearing is set for Jan. 18, 2011, at 2:30 p.m., 411 West Fourth
Street in Courtroom 5D, to consider approval of the extension
request.

The Debtors said they require additional time in which to review
their books and records and to conduct an inventory of their
assets and list of executory contracts and unexpired leases in
order to compile the information necessary to complete its
schedules.  The Debtors are leanly staffed and the holiday season
makes it even more difficult to complete the Schedules because
several employees will have limited availability.

In addition, Fourth Third LLC propounded discovery requests in
connection with its objection to the New Debtor's motion for DIP
financing that is set for a final hearing on Jan. 12, 2011, which
will require additional time on part of the Debtors to compile the
responses, and specifically additional time on the part of Michael
Pompay as he prepares for his deposition.

Bank, asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of South
Carolina to convert the Chapter 11 case of Paul R. Steadman to a
liquidation proceeding under Chapter 7.  A hearing is set for Jan.
27, 2011, at 1:30 p.m., to consider the conversion request.

                        About Paul Steadman

Fort Mill, South Carolina-based Paul R. Steadman filed for Chapter
11 bankruptcy protection on April 30, 2010 (Bankr. D. S.C. Case
No. 10-03145).  Nancy E. Johnson, Esq., at the Law Office of Nancy
E. Johnson, LLC, assists the Debtor in its restructuring effort.
The Debtor disclosed that it has $19,296,279 in total assets, and
$16,204,724 in total liabilities.


PAUL STEADMAN: Files Plan and Disclosure Statement
--------------------------------------------------
Paul R. Steadman delivered a proposed plan of reorganization and
an explanatory disclosure statement.

A hearing is set for Jan. 27, 2011, 01:30 p.m., to consider
approval of the adequacy of the information in the Disclosure
Statement.

According to the Disclosure Statement, the Debtor is liquidating
its assets, this analysis, which allows creditors to determine
whether they are better off through a reorganization and repayment
plan or through a Chapter 7 liquidation, is not relevant.
However, if the assets were liquidated through a Chapter 7, it is
possible that only the mortgage holders would receive any value,
with no distributions to the general unsecured creditors.

The Debtor's plan proposed that properties having no equity
will be surrendered to the mortgage holders.  The Debtor will
retain Stockbridge #3, #4, #5, and #6 and continue to market those
properties for a maximum of 360 days after entry date of the order
confirming the Plan.

   * Stockbridge #3 and #4 -- 48 acres -- Debtor believes the
     value to be approximately $3,600,000.  First Trust has the
     1st mortgage of approximately $1,700,000.  American Community
     Bank has a 2nd mortgage in the approximate amount of
     $240,000.  Resulting equity is $1,660,000.

   * Stockbridge #5 -- 22 acres -- American Community Bank has a
     1st mortgage in the approximate amount of $950,000.  Debtor
     values the property at $1,650,000 with $700,000 resulting
     equity.

   * Stockbridge #6 -- This 2 acre parcel is valued at $150,000
     with First Trust Bank having a mortgage in the approximate
     amount of $115,000.  Resulting equity is $35,000.

The Debtor said if the properties have not sold within that
period of time, the Debtor will surrender those properties to the
respective mortgage holders.  If the properties have not sold
within the first 240 days of that time period, the Debtor will
begin making non-default interest payments to the senior mortgage
creditors.

In addition, the Debtor will place the Gold Hill Road which is
unencumbered, on the market and all sales proceeds will be paid to
unsecured creditors in order of priority.  If a guaranteed
obligation has not been reduced to a deficiency prior to
distribution of sales proceeds, the Debtor will estimate the
potential deficiency based upon the current tax assessed value of
the property and pay said amount as a Class 16 general unsecured
claim.  Gold Hill Road, unencumbered and valued at $180,000, is a
four-acre property next to Stockbridge properties.

Holders of unsecured claims will be paid from the net sales
proceeds of Stockbridge #3 and #4, Stockbridge #5, and the Gold
Hill Road property but only after payment to the Internal Revenue
Service.  Debtor estimated that net sales proceeds could be as
much as $1,500,000.  As properties are sold, sales proceeds will
be held in trust and a single distribution will be made after the
expiration of the 360 days sales period.

REITTER CORP: Gets Court OK to Use Cash Collateral Until Feb. 28
----------------------------------------------------------------
Reitter Corporation sought and obtained authorization from the
Hon. Enrique S. Lamoutte Inclan of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the District of Puerto Rico to use the cash collateral until
February 28, 2011.  The Debtor had reached a stipulation with
Banco Popular de Puerto Rico and the Internal Revenue Services on
the use of cash collateral.

On September 1, 2010, the Debtor and BPPR executed and filed a
joint motion and stipulation for interim use of the cash
collateral.  The stipulation was approved on September 8, 2010.
In the stipulation, BPPR agreed to let the Debtor use, on an
interim basis, the cash collateral to satisfy certain operating
expenses solely on the amounts and as set forth in the budget, a
copy of which is available for free at:

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

As adequate protection, the Debtor agreed to, among other things,
grant BPPR a valid perfected post-petition superpriority claim in
an amount equal to any diminution of value of BPPR's interest in
the cash collateral, resulting from the Debtor's use of the cash
collateral.

On October 26, 2010, the Debtor and BPPR executed and filed a
motion amending the stipulation for interim use of cash
collateral.  That first amendment to BPPR's stipulation was
approved on November 8, 2010.

The Debtors and BPPR executed and filed on November 8, 2010, a
motion for entry of court order extending stipulation, as amended,
for the interim use of Banco Popular's cash collateral until
December 6, 2010.   That second amendment was approved on
November 15, 2010.

On December 6, 2010, the IRS filed a motion to prohibit the use of
cash collateral. The Debtors and BPPR executed and filed that same
day a joint motion for entry of court order extending stipulation,
as amended, for the interim use of BPPR's cash collateral until
January 4, 2010.

On December 7, 2010, the Court denied approval on BPPR's
stipulation extension.  The Court granted the Debtor seven days to
reply to the IRS's objection, and a hearing was scheduled for
December 28, 2010.

On December 10, 2010, the Debtor, BPPR and the IRS filed a joint
motion and stipulation for the use of cash and cash collateral
from December 7, 2010, until December 28, 2010, in light of the
proximity of the date set for the hearing.  On December 14, 2010,
the Court approved the stipulation.

Because there are still controversies and issues that need to be
adjudicated between BPPR and the IRS in connection to the Debtor's
property, the Debtor will make two monthly payments to the U.S. in
the amount of $25,000 per payment with the first payment due on
January 17, 2011, and the second payment due on February 17, 2011.

The IRS and BPPR stipulate that the authorization to allow the
Debtor's use of cash collateral from December 28, 2011 until
February 28, 2011, as agreed in BPPR's stipulation, doesn't grant
any replacement liens or postpetition liens therein granted any
priority over the IRS liens.  The parties also stipulate that the
authorization to allow the cash collateral use, as agreed in
BPPR's stipulation, doesn't grant the superpriority status granted
to BPPR by the Debtors, unless BPPR prevails s to its position.

The parties stipulate that, until the Court makes a final
determination as to the controversy at hand, all parties conserve
the priority which each one had at the time of the filing of the
Petition with respect to their respective claims, security
interests, liens and any and all other rights and privileges under
the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.

San Juan, Puerto Rico-based Reitter Corporation filed for Chapter
11 protection on August 6, 2010 (Bankr. D. P.R. Case No. 10-
07152).  Alexis Fuentes-Hernandez, Esq., at Fuentes Law Offices,
assists the Debtor in its restructuring effort.  In its schedules,
the Debtor disclosed $20,440,765 in total assets and $17,250,033
in total debts.


REMEDIAL CYPRUS: Plan of Liquidation Declared Effective
-------------------------------------------------------
Remedial (Cyprus) Public Company Ltd. said that its Chapter 11
plan of liquidation became effective on Dec. 20, 2010.  The U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York confirmed
the liquidation plan on Dec. 16, 2010.

Entities asserting an administrative expense claim against the
Debtor must filed their administrative claim requests by Jan. 19,
2011, at 4:00 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time).

Under the Plan, holders of allowed general unsecured claims
against the Debtor will receive their pro rata share of estate
assets.  Holders of allowed convenience claims will receive 50% of
the allowed amount of their claim.

The Plan subordinates the deficiency claim to allowed general
unsecured claims and convenience claims.  Holders of the
deficiency claim will receive estate assets, if any, only after
the payment in full of allowed administrative expense claims,
allowed priority claims, allowed general unsecured claims and
allowed convenience claims.  The Debtor believed that the
likelihood of any distribution to holders of the deficiency claim
is low.

The Plan cancels all interests and provides that holders of
interests will receive no Distributions.

RIVER ROAD: Gets Interim OK to Use Cash Collateral Until March 30
-----------------------------------------------------------------
River Road Hotel Partners, LLC, et al., sought and obtained, for
the 10th time, interim authorization from the Hon. Bruce W. Black
of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Illinois
to use the cash collateral until March 30, 2011.

The Court previously approved the Debtor's use of cash collateral

June 24, 2010; and September 15, 2010.

To construct its hotel, the Debtor obtained a $128,611,313
construction loan from Amalgamated Bank, as Trustee of the
Longview Ultra I Construction Loan Investment Fund, in its
capacity as administrative agent for itself and San Diego National
Bank in February 2007.  In October 2008 and pursuant to a second
modification of loan agreement, the hotel loan was increased by

In December 2007, affiliate River Road Expansion Partners, LLC,
obtained a $20,265,000 construction loan from the Lender.  As of
the Petition Date, expansion Partners owes the Lender in excess of
$10 million.

David M. Neff, Esq., at Perkins Coie LLP, explained that the

suppliers and other parties.

As adequate protection, the Debtor will continue operating its
hotel and use the cash collateral to pay operating expenses of the
hotel, as specified in the budget.  A copy of the budget is
available for free at:

forth in the Budget to actual results for the prior month; (ii) a
financial statement for the hotel for the prior month showing a
comparison to the Budget and a comparison to the prior year;
(iii) a balance sheet for the hotel for the prior month; (iv) a
report from the asset manager for the prior month; and (v) STR
report for the hotel for the second month prior.

RQB RESORT: Sawgrass Marriott Valued by Judge at $132 Million
-------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Paul M. Glenn ruled officially
last week that Sawgrass Marriott Resort in Ponte Vedra Beach,
Florida, is worth $132 million.  After a two-day trial in
December, Judge Glenn adopted Goldman Sachs Mortgage Co. opinion
about the value of the property.  RQB Resort LP, the resort's
owner, wanted the judge to rule that it's worth $88.9 million.
Goldman Sachs, the lender, is owed $193 million.

Mr. Rochelle relates that in a case where an asset is clearly
worth less than the secured debt, it's to the bankrupt company's
benefit to place as low a value as possible on the property.  Even
though it may be less than the mortgage debt, paying the value of
the property determined by the judge can allow a company to emerge
from Chapter 11 even if the lender objects, Mr. Rochelle says.

                         About RQB Resort

RQB Resort LP and RQB Development LP own Florida's Sawgrass
Marriott Resort, the site of the U.S. PGA Tour's Tournament
Players Championship.

Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida-based RQB Resort, LP, aka Sawgrass

protection on March 1, 2010 (Bankr. M.D. Fla. Case No. 10-01596).
The Company's affiliate -- RQB Development, LP, aka Sawgrass
Marriott Golf Villas & Spa -- filed a separate Chapter 11
petition.  The Company estimated its assets and debts at
$100 million to $500 million in its Chapter 11 petition.


SBARRO INC: Hires Kirkland & Ellis for Restructuring Advice
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Wall Street Journal's Mike Spector reports that people
familiar with the matter said Sbarro Inc. has hired the law firm
Kirkland & Ellis to advise it on restructuring its balance sheet.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on January 10, 2011,
Sbarro hired investment bank Rothschild Inc. for restructuring
advice.

Mr. Spector notes hiring advisers doesn't necessarily mean a
company will file for bankruptcy protection.  He notes companies
often bring them aboard to restructure debts outside of Chapter
11, typically through a refinancing or an exchange of existing
debt for new equity.  Sbarro may be able to rework its balance
sheet with consent from creditors and avoid bankruptcy court,
according to the people familiar with the situation.  Sbarro
declined to comment.

Mr. Spector notes Sbarro took on significant debt in 2007 to back
a buyout by private-equity firm MidOcean Partners.  One source
told the Journal that Ares Management, an investment firm that
often invests in the debt of troubled companies, holds roughly
half of Sbarro's $150 million in bond debt.

According to the TCR, the Company remains in discussions with its
creditors and other stakeholders regarding the Company's long-term
capital structure and potential strategic alternatives to address
its long-term needs.

One source told the Journal Sbarro is exploring asking creditors
to convert significant chunks of debt to equity.  This source said
restructuring talks could center on how to divide equity in a
restructured Sbarro among MidOcean and Ares.

MidOcean and Ares declined to comment, according to Mr. Spector.

                       Forbearance Agreement

As reported by the TCR on January 10, 2011, Sbarro, together with
its parent, Sbarro Holdings, LLC, effective January 3, entered
into a Forbearance Agreement with its lenders under its First Lien
Credit Agreement and Bank of America, N.A., as Administrative
Agent under the First Lien Credit Agreement, anticipating that it
would not be in compliance with one of the financial covenants in
its First Lien Credit Agreement as of January 2, 2011.

On January 3, the Company provided a notice of default to the
First Lien Holders regarding this anticipated failure to meet
a financial covenant in the First Lien Credit Agreement.

Pursuant to the Forbearance Agreement, the First Lien Holders have
agreed to temporarily forbear from exercising certain rights and
remedies under the First Lien Credit Agreement solely by reason of
the First Lien Default or the delivery of the Indenture Notice.
Specifically, until the Forbearance Agreement terminates, the
First Lien Holders have agreed not to terminate the commitments,
accelerate the loans, require cash collateral for the letter of
credit obligations, enforce liens granted under the collateral
documents or exercise any other rights or remedies that may be
available under the loan documents in respect of the First Lien
Default or the delivery of the Indenture Notice.

The Company has acknowledged that as a result of the First Lien
Default (i) the Company's consent right in respect of certain
assignments is no longer in effect, (ii) all outstanding loans
bear interest at the default rate (contract rate + 2%), which will
result in incremental interest of approximately $860,000 for the
first quarter of fiscal year 2011, and (iii) the Company is not
entitled to convert eurodollar loans to, or continue any
eurodollar loans for additional interest periods as, eurodollar
loans having an interest period in excess of one month.  The
Company has also agreed to pay a fee to each lender that consents
to the Forbearance Agreement of 15 basis points on the principal
amount of loans held by such lender under the First Lien Credit
Agreement.  As of January 3, 2011, the Company has paid consenting
lenders a forbearance fee of $246,063 in aggregate.

The Forbearance Agreement terminates on the earliest of (i)
January 31, 2011, (ii) the date on which any event of default
under the First Lien Credit Agreement other than the First Lien
Default shall occur, (iii) the date of any breach by Holdings or
the Company of the Forbearance Agreement, and (iv) the date on
which any holder of the Company's senior notes or any of the
Company's second lien lenders (A) accelerates any of the Company's
obligations under the Indenture or the second lien credit facility
or (B) enforces any rights to collect payment under their
respective agreements with the Company.  Approximately 95% of the
Company's outstanding second lien debt is held by an affiliate of
MidOcean Partners.  MidOcean Partners, through various investment
funds that it manages, is the indirect, majority stockholder of
the Company.

The Company received a "Notice of Default", dated December 28,
2010, from AFII US BD Holdings, L.P., a holder of a majority of
the Company's senior notes, contending that the Company's
incurrence of its second lien credit facility in March 2009
violated certain provisions of the Senior Notes Indenture, dated
as of January 31, 2007, among the Company, the guarantors named
therein and The Bank of New York, as Trustee, pursuant to which
the Company's senior notes were issued in January 2007.  The
Indenture Notice states that it is not a notice of acceleration.
The Company continues to believe that its entry into the second
lien credit facility in March 2009, the proceeds of which were
used to pay down outstanding indebtedness under the First Lien
Credit Agreement, was permitted by the Indenture.

SHALAN ENTERPRISES: Files Plan of Reorganization
------------------------------------------------
Creditors Perry And Rita Klein have filed a plan of reorganization
and disclosure statement for Shalan Enterprises, LLC --
substantially consolidated with Alan Rapoport -- with the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California.

The Creditors will seek approval of the Plan from the Court at a
confirmation hearing on January 26, 2011, at 9:30 a.m.

The Plan calls for the appointment of a Plan Administrator.
According to the Creditors, the Debtor is delaying the case in an
effort to not pay creditors.  "Debtor has failed to list all
community assets in his Schedules.  Debtor has failed to produce
documents required by the 2004 exam.  Debtors administrative fees
are excessive and the longer the case goes without a plan the
greater the administrative expenses.  The Debtor has fraudulently
conveyed assets and is not pursuing collection of those assets.
The Debtor violated orders from the Nevada State District Court
with regard to transferring assets. The Debtor is using Estate
funds to pay for property that he is not required to pay.  As a
result of dishonesty, incompetence, or gross mismanagement of the
affairs of the Debtor by current management and the conflict of
interest of the Debtor, the Proponents believe that the
appointment of a Plan Administrator would be the best interest of
the Creditors and the Estate," the Creditors stated.

The Plan is proposing a three-year liquidation process of the
nonexempt property and requires Mr. Rapoport to devote all his
disposable income to the plan for five years.  The Allowed
Secured Claims will be paid as their collateral is liquidated with
excess proceeds being used to pay other Classes.  If not sooner,
the Allowed Unsecured Claims will start receiving disbursements
three years from Confirmation Date.

STERLING ESTATES: Has No Realistic Exit Plan, Court Says
--------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Jack B. Schmetterer said Sterling Estates
(Delaware), LLC, doesn't have a realistic reorganization plan in
prospect and that the two plan versions it has proposed violates
the absolute priority rule.

Judge Schmetterer made those comments in a January 6, 2011 ruling
denying the Debtor authority to use cash collateral securing its
obligations under a promissory note held by Banc of America
Commercial Mortgage Inc., Commercial Mortgage Pass-Through
Certificates, Series 2003-2.  Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., is the
trustee for the registered holders of the Trust.  ORIX Capital
Markets, LLC, which has objected to the Plans, asserts authority
to litigate certain pending contested matters as special servicer,
asserted to be a representative of the Trustee.  The Note matured
on May 1, 2010, and is secured by a lien on substantially all of
the Debtor's property, including the Debtor's real estate, rents,
a master lease, and a management agreement.

Judge Schmetterer ruled that the Trust's interest in the Debtor's
property is not adequately protected.  Even if the Trust was
adequately protected, the Debtor has no equity in its property and
the property is not necessary for effective reorganization.

Judge Schmetterer held that ORIX has established that it is the
Special Servicer and has the required standing to contest pending
issues.

The Court also found and held that the Debtor's property is valued
at $23,600,000.

The Debtor has filed an initial proposed Chapter 11 Plan and later
filed an amended Chapter 11 Plan.  The Debtor has not obtained any
new financing.  Both Plans proposed to stretch out payments on the
Trust's loan, paying only interest for a period -- three years in
the original Plan, four years in the amended Plan -- followed by
principal and interest payments for a period -- 47 months in the
original Plan, 23 months in the amended Plan -- with a balloon
payment upon completion of the Plan.  Both Plans also propose full
payment of unsecured claims and retention of interest by the
Debtor's sole managing member.  The Court's ruling noted that both
Plans assume that the Trust is fully secured, which is not the
case.

The Trust has an unsecured claim of roughly $12.4 million in
excess of the property value, giving it a controlling vote in the
unsecured class of claims.  Neither Plan accounts for this, the
Court's ruling said.

The Court also noted that the class of unsecured claims is
impaired, while under each proposed Plan the Members of the Debtor
LLC retain their interests.  The Debtor's Plans do not explain how
this possible violation of the absolute priority rule, 11 U.S.C.
Sec. 1129(b)(2)(B), could be approved over ORIX's objection.
Because of these factual weaknesses and legal problems, it cannot
be said that Debtor has a realistic reorganization plan in
prospect, the Court held.

The Troubled Company Reporter published a summary of the Debtor's
Plan on December 13, 2010.  A full-text copy of the Plan
Disclosure Statement is available for free at

TARAZ KOOH: Court Okays Disclosure Statement
--------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas ruled
that the disclosure statement, as amended, provides adequate
information that will enable creditors to make an informed
judgment as to whether to accept or reject the proposed plan of
reorganization for Taraz Kooh, LLC.

The hearing to confirm the Plan will be held on February 3, 2011
at 9:15 a.m. (prevailing Central Time).

On November 12, 2010, the Debtor filed a plan of reorganization.
Under that plan, the claim of noteholder Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.,
will be fully satisfied by the issuance of the new Wells Fargo
note.  Under that plan, there will be applied and credited against
the claim of Wells Fargo (i) the escrowed funds held by the
Noteholder in the Other Escrow account in the amount of $258,448;
(ii) all adequate protection payments made by the Debtor to the
Noteholder during the pendency of the Chapter 11 case to the
effective date of the Plan; and (iii) the net proceeds from the
sale of the outparcel in the amount of $139,000.  The New Wells
Fargo Note will be secured by the collateral which secures the
existing Wells Fargo Note, except to the extent that any property
is remitted to or retained by the Noteholder under the terms of
the Plan.  A copy of the disclosure statement is available for
free at http://bankrupt.com/misc/TARAZ_firstds.pdf

On December 12, 2010, the Debtor filed an amended plan and amended
disclosure statement with the Court.  Copies of the Plan and
disclosure statement are available for free at:

        http://bankrupt.com/misc/TARAZ_KOOH_amendedplan.pdf
        http://bankrupt.com/misc/TarazKooh_AmendedDS.pdf

Under the Amended Plan, the Reorganized Debtor will continue in
business in a form and manner substantially similar to the
Debtor's prepetition business practices.

Under the terms of the Plan, the claim of the Noteholder will be
fully satisfied by the modification and ratification of existing
loan documents with the Noteholder.  The modified Wells Fargo loan
will be secured by the collateral which secures the existing
promissory note payable to the Noteholder, except to the extent
that any property is remitted to or retained by the Noteholder
under the terms of the Plan.  In connection with the closing of
the Modified Wells Fargo Loan, the Debtor will obtain a recordable
release of the outstanding mechanic's lien in the amount of
$54,275.19.  The Reorganized Debtor will timely pay the balance of
2010 Ad Valorem taxes after application of current escrowed funds
for the purpose; provided however, the Reorganized Debtor will
continue to escrow $23,083 per month through January 2010 for the
purpose of payment of Ad Valorem taxes on the property for 2010 by
the Reorganized Debtor at the time as those taxes are due and
payable under applicable non-bankruptcy law.  The tax and
insurance escrow will continue under the Modified Wells Fargo
Loan.  The Reorganized Debtor will, no later than the effective
date, establish an escrow account with the Noteholder in an amount
not less than $376,000 sufficient to satisfy all outstanding items
under the Doubletree PIP, which PIP Escrow will be funded as: (i)
on the effective date of the Plan, $129,874.88 from the existing
FF&E Reserve and Seasonality Reserve; (ii) on the effective date
of the Plan, $123,062.56 from sources other than cash flow from
the Property; and (iii) on May 31, 2011, $123,062.56 from sources
other than cash flow from the Property.  The Reorganized Debtor
will execute an amendment to its existing cash management account
to create a lockbox account upon any event of default occurring on
or after the effective date of the Modified Wells Fargo Loan.  On
the effective date of the Plan, the Reorganized Debtor will assume
the current Doubletree Franchise Agreement, and the FF&E Lease
with Vendor Capitol Group.  The Secured claims of Chase Bank and
Ford Motor Credit will be paid according to the terms of the
prepetition loan and security agreements.  In addition, unsecured
creditors will be paid 75% of the allowed amount of their claims,
without interest, in eight equal quarterly installments commencing
on the first day of the first month following the effective date.
The Insider Claims of Alireza Morirahimi and Parvin Mosavi will be
subordinated to General Unsecured Claims and won't receive any
distributions on account of their Insider Claims from the
Reorganized Debtor until all senior claims are paid pursuant to
the terms of the plan.  Equity Interest Holders will retain their
membership interests in the Reorganized Debtor, provided, however,
no distribution will be made on account of the interests until all
payments are made as provided under the Plan and the Noteholder is
paid on account of its claim in full, in cash.

Dublin, Ireland-based TBS International plc (NASDAQ: TBSI)
-- http://www.tbsship.com/-- is a fully-integrated transportation
service company that provides worldwide shipping solutions to a
diverse client base of industrial shippers.

At September 30, 2010, TBS had total assets of US$906.794 million,

shareholders' equity of US$513.154 million.  TBS had working
capital deficit of US$297.663 million at September 30, 2010.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on March 19, 2010,
PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, in New York, 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 believes it will not be in compliance with the
financial covenants under its credit facilities during 2010, which
under the agreements would make the debt callable.  "This has
created uncertainty regarding the Company's ability to fulfill its
financial commitments as they become due."

TBS International in Decmeber 2010 disclosed that its various
lender groups have agreed to extend the current forbearance period
until January 31, 2011.  During such period, the lender groups
will continue to forbear from exercising their rights and remedies
which arise from the Company's failure to make principal payments
when due.  The Company will not make principal payments due on its
financing facilities during the extended forbearance period, but
it will continue to pay interest on those facilities at the
default interest rate.v


TENET HEALTHCARE: Adopts Stockholder Rights Plan to Protect NOLs
----------------------------------------------------------------
Tenet Healthcare Corporation announced that its Board of Directors
has adopted a stockholder rights plan in the form of a Section 382
Rights Agreement designed to protect the Company's ability to
utilize its net operating loss carryforwards, which total
approximately $2 billion.

United States federal income tax rules, and Section 382 of the
Internal Revenue Code in particular, could substantially limit the
use of net operating losses and other tax assets if Tenet
experiences an "ownership change".  In general, an ownership
change occurs if there is a cumulative change in the ownership of
Tenet by "5 percent stockholders" that exceeds 50 percentage
points over a rolling three-year period.

The Company noted the Section 382 Rights Agreement serves the
interests of all stockholders by protecting the Company's ability
to use its deferred tax assets to offset tax liabilities in the
future.

Under the terms of the Section 382 Rights Agreement, the Company
will distribute to its stockholders a non-taxable dividend
distribution of one preferred stock purchase right for each share
of common stock of the Company outstanding as of the close of
business on January 17, 2011.  The Section 382 Rights Agreement is
intended to act as a deterrent to any person acquiring beneficial
ownership of 4.9% or more of the Company's outstanding common
stock.  Stockholders who beneficially owned 4.9% or more of the
Company's outstanding common stock as of the close of business on
January 7, 2011 will not become an Acquiring Person so long as
they do not acquire additional shares of common stock representing
one-quarter of one percent of the Company's common stock then
outstanding while they still beneficially own 4.9% or more of the
Company's outstanding common stock.

A person who becomes an Acquiring Person may be subject to
significant dilution in their holdings.  The Board of Directors
may, in its sole discretion, exempt any person from being deemed
an Acquiring Person for purposes of the Section 382 Rights
Agreement.

Tenet will file the Section 382 Rights Agreement with the
Securities and Exchange Commission. The above description is only
a summary; interested persons are urged to read the full Section
382 Rights Agreement as so filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission.

In addition, Tenet announced that its Board of Directors has
amended the Company's bylaws to allow for the 2011 Annual Meeting
of Stockholders to be held on Thursday, November 3, 2011.  Tenet

                           *     *     *

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.


TETRAGENEX PHARMACEUTICALS: Wins Ok of Prepack Debt-Swap Plan
-------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Tetragenex Pharmaceuticals Inc. won confirmation of
its prepackaged Chapter 11 reorganization at a Jan. 5 hearing,
court records show.  The plan calls for the secured creditor, owed
$85,000, to swap the debt for stock. Creditors voted before the
petition was filed in October.

Tetragenex Pharmaceuticals, Inc., fka Innapharma, Inc., is a
developer of peptides to treat depression.  The New York-based
company has a patent for Nemefitide that expires in 2014. The
looming expiration of the patent didn't afford enough time to
complete testing and marketing of the drug in the U.S., the
company said in a court filing.

Tetragenex Pharmaceuticals sought chapter 11 protection (Bankr.
E.D.N.Y. Case No. 10-78439) on Oct. 26, 2010, and filed its
Prepackaged Plan of Reorganization of Tetragenex Pharmaceuticals,

Prepackaged Plan of Reorganization of Tetragenex Pharmaceuticals,
Inc., dated Aug. 10, 2010, that same day.

-----------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Law360 reports that the trustee overseeing the

TRICO MARINE: January 31 Hearing on Key Settlement
--------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Trico Marine Services, Inc., will be facing
objections from the U.S. Trustee and Arrowgrass Capital Partners
at the January 31 hearing to a settlement with holders of
$400 million in 11.875% secured notes issued by non-bankrupt Trico
operating companies that would grant the noteholders ownership of
the non-bankrupt unit that provides subsea services.

Mr. Rochelle relates that like Arrowgrass, the U.S. Trustee
contends that the settlement can't be approved without the
protections accompanying the confirmation of a Chapter 11 plan.
The U.S. Trustee, the bankruptcy watchdog for the U.S. Justice
Department, points out how the largest asset of the bankrupt Trico
companies is $525 million owing by the non-bankrupt subsidiaries,
which would be spun off in the settlement to holders of the high
yield notes.  In return, the bankrupt Trico companies would
receive warrants for 5% of the common stock issued in the spinoff.

Opposing the settlement short of inclusion in a Chapter 11 plan,
the U.S. Trustee says it would "strip the debtor estates of their
most valuable assets primarily for the benefit of high yield
noteholders and the debtor's insider."  The settlement would
dictate the outcome of the case "for the remaining creditor body,"
the U.S. Trustee said.

TROPICANA ENTERTAINMENT: Court Rules Canbergs Violated Stay
-----------------------------------------------------------
Judge Judith H. Wizmur of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of New Jersey granted in part and denied in part the
motion of Adamar of NJ In Liquidation, LLC, formerly Adamar of
New Jersey, Inc., and Manchester Mall, Inc., to declare the action
of Nicholas Caliendo, Esq., Michael Canberg and Patricia Canberg
to be willful violations of the automatic stay provisions of
Section 362 of the Bankruptcy Code.

Judge Wizmur specifically held that the actions of Mr. Caliendo
and the Canbergs, in continuing the Canberg Action postpetition
and in filing the Reinstatement Motion, violated the automatic
stay provisions under Section 362.  However, Judge Wizmur ruled,
no sanctions will be imposed because the violation was not
willful within the meaning of Section 362(k).

Judge Wizmur also ordered the Canbergs to file a stipulation of
dismissal of the Canberg Action as to Adamar of New Jersey, Inc.

The Canbergs' Claim against the NJ Debtors are unaffected by the
order, the Court held.

Adamar of NJ In Liquidation, LLC, fka Adamar of New Jersey, Inc.;
and Manchester Mall, Inc., ask Judge Judith Wizmur of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of New Jersey to declare the
actions of Nicholas Caliendo, Esq., Michael Canberg, and Patricia
Canberg to be willful violations of the automatic stay provisions
of Section 362 of the Bankruptcy Code.

The Canbergs filed a complaint against Adamar in the Superior
Court of New Jersey, Law Division, Ocean County, styled as
"Michael Canberg and Patricia Canberg v. Adamar of New Jersey,
Inc., d/b/a Tropicana Casino & Resort-Atlantic City and John Doe
(1-5) (fictitious person(s) and/or entity(ies)," Docket No. OCN-
L-428.10, wherein they asserted causes of action for negligence
and loss of consortium.  Nicholas A. Caliendo, Esq., of Manning,
Caliendo & Thomson, P.A., represents the Canbergs under the
Superior Court Action.  The NJ Debtors were formally served with
the Canberg Action on March 4, 2010.

Moreover, Mr. Canberg filed Claim No. 810 in an unliquidated
amount approximately 14 months after the Bar Date, Ilana Volkov,
Esq., at Cole, Schotz, Meisel, Forman & Leonard, P.A., in
Hackensack, New Jersey, notes.

The NJ Debtors recount that they closed on the sale of
substantially all of their assets to Tropicana Entertainment
Inc., Tropicana Atlantic City Corp. and Tropicana AC Sub Corp.
pursuant to the Amended and Restated Purchase Agreement, on
March 8, 2010.  By March 14, 2010, Tama Hughes, Esq., in-house
counsel to Tropicana AC, sent Nicholas Caliendo, Esq., counsel to
the Canbergs, a letter stating that the Canberg Action violates
the automatic stay and requested the withdrawal of the Action.

TROPICANA ENTERTAINMENT: Foodservice Demands Claims Payment
-----------------------------------------------------------
U.S. Foodservice, Inc., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Delaware:

  (i) to allow its USF OpCo Claims pursuant to an agreement with
      certain parties as to the amount of the claims, the merits
      of the USF claims, as modified, and the Court's equitable
      powers;

(ii) to compel the immediate payment of its OpCo Administrative
      Claim such that the funds are received by December 31,
      2010; and

(iii) to grant it costs and attorneys' fees.

USF is the second largest broadline food service distributor in
the United States, providing food and food-related products to
customers, including restaurants and hotels, across the country.

Before the Petition Date, USF sold food and food-related products
to the Debtors in the ordinary course of business.  USF paid its
suppliers for the products and understands that the Debtors, in
turn, sold the items to their customers.  However, USF has not
been paid for the food and food-related products that it sold to
the Debtors, according to Teresa K.D. Currier, Esq., at Saul
Ewing LLP, in Wilmington, Delaware.

Pursuant to the Court-confirmed OpCo Joint Plan of Reorganization,
on the effective date, all property in each OpCo Estate, all
Causes of Action, and any property acquired by any of the OpCo
Debtors vested in each Reorganized OpCo Debtor, free and clear of
all liens, claims, charges or other encumbrances.  The OpCo Plan
further provides that, among other things, on the later of the
Effective Date or the date upon which an administrative claim,
including claims pursuant to Section 503(b), becomes allowed, the
administrative claim will be paid in full and in cash.
Distributions on account of general unsecured claims that become
allowed after the Effective Date of the OpCo Plan will be made on
a periodic distribution date, which arises approximately every
three months.

                   USF Claims and Stipulation

Ms. Currier relates that USF timely filed 21 claims, aggregating
$5,383,235, against the Debtors, which consist of (i) $3,811,356
pursuant to Section 503(b)(9) of the Bankruptcy Code, and (ii)
$1,571,879 asserted as a general unsecured claim.  A list of the
Asserted Claims is available at no charge at:

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

Even before plan confirmation, in early Spring 2009, counsel of
the OpCo Debtors and a representative of the OpCo Debtors'
financial advisor, AlixPartners LLP, contacted USF's counsel to
begin the process of resolving and allowing USF's Asserted
Claims.  In particular, the OpCo Debtors and AlixPartners asked
for a reallocation of the Asserted Claims between the OpCo
Debtors and the Liquidating LandCo Debtors to delineate between
goods that had been delivered to non-Las Vegas entities and goods
that had been delivered to the Las Vegas entities.

USF, the OpCo Debtors and the Liquidating LandCo Debtors then
began to put together a form of stipulation to document the
resolution of the Asserted Claims.  On October 27, 2009,
AlixPartners again slightly reallocated the Asserted Claims,
further reducing the OpCo Debtors' exposure.  AlixPartners
indicated that the original allocation, which USF agreed to on
March 26, 2009, had not taken into account certain invoices for
goods delivered to certain Las Vegas locations by a related USF
entity, E&H Distributing, LLC, doing business as Outwest Meat
Company.

The revised reallocation and reconciliation finally allowed (i)
USF's Section 503(b)(9) claim for $844,674 against the OpCo
Debtors, and (ii) USF's general unsecured claim for $617,418
against the OpCo Debtors, Ms. Currier informs the Court.

The parties never revisited these numbers for over a year until
December 8, 2010, when the Reorganized OpCo Debtors asked to re-
diligence the claim numbers all over again after a stipulation
had been fully negotiated and finalized and was executed by three
of four parties to the stipulation, Ms. Currier reveals.

In November 2009, the Liquidating LandCo Debtors raised different
issues unrelated with the OpCo Debtors, and negotiations on the
final form of a stipulation stalled.  Shortly thereafter, USF
began negotiations with the Liquidating LandCo Debtors in an
effort to address the issues and reach a global resolution with
both Debtor groups with respect to the Asserted Claims.

In Spring 2010, the Liquidating LandCo Debtors made a preference
demand upon USF and OMC.  As of December 14, 2010, the parties
have entered into eight agreements tolling the statute of
limitations with respect to the preference actions.  Negotiations
with the Liquidating LandCo Debtors continued through the summer
of 2010 and into late September 2010, when the Liquidating LandCo
Debtors eventually made a settlement offer to USF.

In late September 2010, counsel to the Reorganized OpCo Debtors
raised with the counsel to USF an issue having to do with HMR
Enterprises, Inc.  HMR had asserted a Section 503(b)(9) claim
against the OpCo Debtors, which included certain goods provided
by USF and for which USF had also asserted an administrative
claim.

On October 29, 2010, USF counsel informed the Reorganized OpCo
Debtors' counsel that an agreement had been reached with the
Liquidating LandCo Debtors, pending final approval, and that a
stipulation between all parties based on the one that had been
drafted in October 2009 would be forthcoming.  HMR was also to be
a party to the stipulation in an effort to resolve all related
issues in one document.

In early November 2010, a first draft of the stipulation was
completed.  Counsel to the Liquidating LandCo Debtors, the
Reorganized OpCo Debtors, and USF negotiated a variety of issues
with respect to the Stipulation, including refining release
language and providing for the timing of the payment of the
Section 503(b)(9) claims.  Ms. Currier notes that during the
negotiations, the Reorganized OpCo Debtors' counsel never raised
any objections or issues with respect to USF's entitlement to the
USF OpCo Claims in the long-agreed amounts.

On November 30, 2010, after over a year of continued
negotiations, USF, the Reorganized OpCo Debtors, the Liquidating
LandCo Debtors and HMR finally reached an agreement as to the
terms of a settlement stipulation.

According to Ms. Currier, the settlement include these terms: (i)
the Reorganized OpCo Debtors' allowance and payment of the
$844,674 OpCo Administrative Claim on or before December 15,
2010, and the allowance and payment of the $617,418 OpCo
Unsecured Claim pursuant to the terms of the OpCo Plan; and (ii)
the Liquidating LandCo Debtors' allowance and payment of USF's
Section 503(b)(9) claim for $276,755 by December 15, 2010, and
the allowance and payment of USF's general unsecured claim
against the LandCo Debtors for $317,543 pursuant to the terms of
the LandCo Plan.

By December 1, 2010, three out of four parties to the Stipulation
-- the Liquidating LandCo Debtors, HMR and USF -- executed the
Stipulation.  Ms. Currier relates that counsel to the Reorganized
OpCo Debtors had repeatedly assured USF's counsel that the
Stipulation would be "done shortly" and gave no indication that
there were any open issues as to either critical agreement terms
or language.

On December 6, 2010, following another inquiry by USF's counsel
as to the status of the Reorganized OpCo Debtors' signature page,
counsel to the Reorganized OpCo Debtors -- for the first time in
13 months since the reconciliation, allocation and agreement on
the USF OpCo Claims -- stated that the new management of the
Reorganized OpCo Debtors wanted to speak to USF with respect to
the agreed-upon USF OpCo Claims.

During the December 8, 2010 telephone conference between all
parties, the Reorganized OpCo Debtors "blatantly" reneged on the
agreed-upon allowed amounts of the USF OpCo Claims, according to
Ms. Currier.

The Reorganized OpCo Debtors "glibly" distanced themselves from
the long-standing agreement, bullying USF by threatening to take
weeks if not months to revisit the claim amounts and hold up the
process, Ms. Currier contends.  The Reorganized OpCo Debtors
ended the call by demanding that USF once again "prove up" claim
amounts that have already been agreed upon by the parties, and
refused to execute the Stipulation memorializing the agreement
among the parties as to the USF's OpCo Claims, she tells the
Court.

At no time since the final reconciliation and allocation of the
USF OpCo Claims in October 2009 by the OpCo Debtors' financial
advisor did the Reorganized OpCo Debtors' counsel or any other
representative ever raise an issue with respect to the allowance
of the USF OpCo Claims in the amounts as reconciled and agreed to
by AlixPartners, Ms. Currier points out.  Rather, counsel
reaffirmed the Reorganized OpCo Debtors' agreement to this amount
over and over.

Counsel to the Reorganized OpCo Debtors was also counsel to the
OpCo Debtors and thus, for over 13 months, has been well aware of
the Reorganized OpCo Debtors' agreements to the amounts of the
USF OpCo Claims, Ms. Currier asserts.  Indeed, the OpCo
Administrative Claim and the OpCo Unsecured Claim as set forth in
the Stipulation are the same claim amounts as calculated,
reconciled and allocated by the representatives of the
Reorganized OpCo Debtors, specifically their financial advisor
and counsel, and are the same claim amounts agreed upon by the
OpCo Debtors more than a year ago, she says.

Because the Reorganized OpCo Debtors now refuse to make payment
as agreed, USF seeks the Court's assistance in compelling the
Reorganized OpCo Debtors to honor the deal they made.

By this motion, USF seeks to enforce the core, salient agreement
term that the Reorganized OpCo Debtors must pay the USF OpCo
Claims by December 31, 2010.  USF is not seeking to enforce the
Stipulation, Ms. Currier clarifies.  Moreover, she notes, at no
time during the course of the negotiations did the Reorganized
OpCo Debtors expressly state that they would withdraw from any
agreement unless the agreement was set forth and executed in
writing.

Accordingly, because the Reorganized OpCo Debtors' agreement to
allow the USF OpCo Claims and pay the OpCo Administrative Claim
by December 31, 2010, is sufficiently definite, and the parties'
communications and course of conduct demonstrates an intent to be
bound by such terms, USF should be entitled to the allowance of
its USF OpCo Claims and the payment of the OpCo Administrative
Claim by December 31, 2010, Ms. Currier insists.

In the alternative, in the event the Court finds that there is no
enforceable agreement-in-principle between the parties, USF asks
the Court to require the Reorganized OpCo Debtors to pay it in
accordance with its proofs of claim, as modified by the
reallocation.

Section 503(b)(9) affords administrative expense priority to the
value of any goods received by the debtor within 20 days of the
commencement of a bankruptcy case in which the goods have been
sold to the debtor in the ordinary course of that debtor's
business.  Ms. Currier asserts that USF's sale of food and food-
related products to the Debtors was a sale of "goods" within the
meaning of the statute, and that the Debtors received the goods
serving as the basis for the OpCo Administrative Claim within 20
days before the Petition Date.

                        Scheduling Order

USF has sought and obtained Judge Kevin J. Carey's approval to
shorten notice of the Motion to Compel.

The Reorganized OpCo Debtors objected to USF's request arguing
that the motion to shorten "is nothing more than a meritless
attempt by a creditor to circumvent the notice requirements set
forth in the Local Rules of Bankruptcy Practice and Procedure of
the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware
in order to receive an expedited payment from the Reorganized
OpCo Debtors on account of disputed claims still being analyzed
by the Reorganized OpCo Debtors."

The Court entered an order scheduling hearing and discovery on
the Motion to Compel, which specifies these dates:

    * The parties will exchange any interrogatories or document
      requests on or before January 5, 2011.

    * The parties will respond to any interrogatories or
      document requests served upon them on or before
      January 17, 2011.

    * The parties will identify witnesses that they intend to or
      reserve the right to call at the hearing in this matter on
      or before January 21, 2011.

    * The discovery cut-off will be February 7, 2011.

    * The parties will serve a copy or identify all exhibits and
      other documentary evidence they intend to or reserve the
      right to introduce on or before February 10, 2011.

    * The Reorganized OpCo Debtors will file their opposition to
      the motion on or before February 14, 2011.

    * USF will file its reply to the Debtors' opposition on or
      before February 23, 2011.

    * The Court will hold a hearing to consider the motion on
      March 3, 2011.

TSG INC: Plan Exclusivity Extension Hearing on January 20
---------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania
continued to Jan. 20, 2011, at 11:00 a.m., the hearing on TSG
Inc.'s request to extend its exclusive periods to file a Chapter
11 plan of reorganization and disclosure statement.

The Debtor is asking the Court to further extend its deadline to
file a Chapter 11 plan and solicit acceptances of that plan until
Jan. 6, 2011, and March 7, 2011, respectively.

Michael J. Barrie, Esq., at Benesch Friedlander Coplan & Aronoff
LLP, said, that the Debtor has expended significant efforts to
sell certain assets comprising one of its operating divisions and
had recently entered into a letter of intent with respect to one
sales.  The sale will enable the Debtor to move forward with its
plan of reorganization and ultimate exit from bankruptcy.

In addition, according to Mr. Barrie, the Debtor has been working
diligently with its purchaser to finalize the details of this
asset sale.  Without revealing details of this transaction, which
may jeopardize the sale process, this transaction involves a sale
of assets to a foreign purchaser.  Given the international nature
of this transaction, all aspects of the sale have been slower than
anticipated by the Debtor, including negotiations and due
diligence, says Mr. Barrie.

VISUALANT INC: Inks License Agreement with Javelin LLC
------------------------------------------------------
Visualant, Inc. announced that it has entered into a license
agreement with Seattle based Javelin LLC for development of
environmental diagnostic applications of its Spectral Pattern
Matching technology.

Visualant's primary focus with its SPM technology and its
TransTech Systems, Inc. subsidiary is the multi-billion dollar
security and authentication marketplace.  SPM technology has broad
applicability to a number of fields of use outside the security
and authentication marketplace including medical, agricultural and
environmental diagnostics.  Today's announcement is the first
license agreement for the SPM technology.  It marks a significant
milestone in the Company's growth.  The first public demonstration
of the Company's SPM technology occurred in October of 2010.  This
license is what the Company hopes will be the first of many such
agreements.  The license, which is exclusive for environmental
applications, provides for certain minimum payments and market-
rate royalties.

The Visualant SPM technology, with its ability to map color at the
photon level both within the humanly visible spectrum as well as
in the near infra-red and near ultra-violet, can be used as a
diagnostic tool for a host of environmental applications.  These
include determining the presence of foreign substances such as oil
in water and determining water quality among many others.

Javelin LLC Co-founder, Peter Purdy, stated, "I have worked in the
optical solutions field for over twenty years.  With The Visualant
SPM technology we can differentiate our product for testing at the
molecular level due to its very low cost.  It is a transformative
technology with a broad array of potential applications."  Mathew
Creedican Javelin Co-founder agrees and mentioned "We have been
aggressive in pursuing Visualant's technologies for our testing
applications and the extreme competitive advantage SPM brings in
size, cost and durability.  We are excited about a number of the
current environmental applications we currently are working with
as well as future iterations of the technology."

About the Javelin license agreement Visualant CEO Ron Erickson
said, "While we remain focused on our work in the security and
authentication marketplace, we have been resolute in our belief
the Visualant SPM technology has extensive applications in many
fields of use.  We look forward to working with Javelin to solve
some big problems in environment diagnostics.  Over time, we
expect to secure additional licensing opportunities for the SPM
technology in medical, agricultural diagnostics and in other
fields of use."

VITRO SAB: No Ruling on Change of Venue Issue So Far
----------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Judge Russell F. Nelms in Fort Worth, Texas, held a
hearing on January 6 on the change-of-venue issue for the U.S.
side of the reorganization of Vitro SAB -- (i) a request of
bondholders to transfer the Chapter 15 case filed by Vitro SAB in
Manhattan to Texas, where involuntary Chapter 11 petitions were
filed against U.S. affiliates of Vitro prior to the Chapter 11
filing and (ii) a cross motion by Vitro to transfer the Texas
involuntary cases to New York.

Judge Nelms did not rule on the change-of-venue issue at the end
of the hearing.  Judge Nelms did clarify a prior ruling by saying
that the contending parties could ask the New York bankruptcy
judge to terminate or confirm attachments that some noteholders
obtained from a state court in New York attempting to recover on
the defaulted bonds.  The state court suits had been shifted to
the bankruptcy court.

                 Ruling on Dismissal Without Trial

Mr. Rochelle relates that Vitro, saying there are no disputed
facts, filed a motion on Jan. 5 in Fort Worth for summary judgment
dismissing involuntary Chapter 11 petitions filed against the U.S.
subsidiaries.  Unless summary judgment is granted in favor of
Vitro, Judge Nelms already scheduled a trial to begin in Fort
Worth on Feb. 10 to decide if the subsidiaries can be thrown into
Chapter 11 involuntarily.

While not disputing that the $1.2 billion in bonds have been in
default for about two years, Vitro nonetheless contends the
involuntary petitions must be dismissed.  Vitro argues that a
required demand for payment was never made before the petitions
were filed.  Without such a demand, Vitro takes the position that
the subsidiaries have no liability on their guarantees of the
bonds.

Vitro's second argument is based on provisions in the bonds
limiting each subsidiary's guarantee to an amount that won't make
the guarantee voidable as a fraudulent transfer.  For that reason,
Vitro contends the amount of the debt is "uncertain," again
precluding the bond default from being the basis for an
involuntary petition.

                         About Vitro SAB

Headquartered in Monterrey, Mexico, Vitro, S.A.B. de C.V. (BMV:
VITROA; NYSE: VTO), through its two subsidiaries, Vitro Envases
Norteamerica, SA de C.V. and Vimexico, S.A. de C.V., is a global
glass producer, serving the construction and automotive glass
markets and glass containers needs of the food, beverage, wine,
liquor, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries.

Vitro is the largest manufacturer of glass containers and flat
glass in Mexico, with consolidated net sales in 2009 of
MXN23,991 million (US$1.837 billion).

Vitro defaulted on its debt in 2009, and is now seeking to
restructure around US$1.5 billion in debt, including US$1.2
billion in notes.

Vitro launched an offer to buy back or swap US$1.2 billion in debt
from bondholders.  The tender offer would be consummated with a
bankruptcy filing in Mexico and Chapter 15 filing in the United
States.  Vitro said noteholders would recover as much as 73% by
exchanging existing debt for cash, new debt or convertible bonds.
The offer was to expire December 7.

Noteholders who oppose the exchange, namely Knighthead Master
Fund, L.P., Lord Abbett Bond-Debenture Fund, Inc., Davidson
Kempner Distressed Opportunities Fund LP, and Brookville Horizons
Fund, L.P. -- which hold US$75 million, or approximately 6% of the
outstanding bond debt -- commenced involuntary bankruptcy cases
under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code against Vitro Asset
Corp. (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 10-47470) and nine other
affiliates on November 17, 2010.

Vitro engaged Susman Godfrey, L.L.P. as U.S. special litigation
Counsel to analyze the potential rights that Vitro may exercise in
the United States against the ad hoc group of dissident
bondholders and its advisors.

A larger group of noteholders, known as the Ad Hoc Group of Vitro
Noteholders -- comprised of holders, or investment advisors to
holders, which represent approximately US$650 million of the
Senior Notes due 2012, 2013 and 2017 issued by Vitro -- was not
among the Chapter 11 petitioners, although the group has expressed
concerns over the exchange offer.  The group says the exchange
offer exposes Noteholders who consent to potential adverse
consequences that have not been disclosed by Vitro.  The group is
represented by John Cunningham, Esq., and Richard Kebrdle, Esq. at
White & Case LLP.

The U.S. affiliates subject to the involuntary petitions are
Vitro Chemicals, Fibers & Mining, LLC (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case
No. 10-47472); Vitro America, LLC (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No.
10-47473); Troper Services, Inc. (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No.
10-47474); Super Sky Products, Inc. (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No.
10-47475); Super Sky International, Inc. (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case
No. 10-47476); VVP Holdings, LLC (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No.
10-47477); Amsilco Holdings, Inc. (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No.
10-47478); B.B.O. Holdings, Inc. (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No.
10-47479); Binswanger Glass Company (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No.
10-47480); Crisa Corporation (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 10-47481);
VVP Finance Corporation (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 10-47482); VVP
Auto Glass, Inc. (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 10-47483); V-MX
Holdings, LLC (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 10-47484); and Vitro
Packaging, LLC (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 10-47485).

Vitro SAB on December 13, 2010, filed its voluntary petition for a
pre-packaged Concurso Plan in the Federal District Court for Civil
and Labor Matters for the State of Nuevo Leon, thereby commencing
its voluntary concurso mercantil proceedings.  Vitro SAB believes
that, as a result of the implementation of the Concurso Plan
through the Mexican Proceeding, the holders of the Restructured
Debt will recover 68% to 75% of the face value of their respective
claims.

Vitro SAB also commenced parallel proceedings under Chapter 15 of
the U.S. Bankruptcy Code (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 10-16619) in
Manhattan on December 13, 2010, to seek U.S. recognition and
deference to its bankruptcy proceedings in Mexico.

Alejandro Francisco Sanchez-Mujica, as foreign representative of
Vitro, has asked the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to enter an order
recognizing the Mexican Proceeding as "foreign main proceeding"
pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Secs. 1515 and 1517.


WASHINGTON MUTUAL: Junior Noteholders Can't Move Up in Pay Ladder
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Steven Church at Bloomberg News reported that U.S. Bankruptcy
Judge Mary F. Walrath in Wilmington, Delaware, ruled that
bondholders of Washington Mutual Bank can't move ahead of other
unsecured creditors in the bankruptcy of the company's former
parent, Washington Mutual Inc.  The ruling means some of the
bondholders who purchased $13 billion in notes from WaMu's bank
will be the next-to-last creditors paid under WaMu's proposed
bankruptcy-exit plan.

"They are the major losers in this bankruptcy," bondholder
attorney Geoffrey C. Jarvis, Esq., said in an interview after the
ruling.  "This was not a totally unexpected result."

Bloomberg recounts that Judge Walrath ruled last year that some of
the bank bondholders had the right to file a claim in WaMu's
bankruptcy.  Under her January 6 ruling, those claims can only be
paid should all other unsecured claims be paid in full.  The
bondholders rank ahead of shareholders.

the letter of credit the allocation of junior liens among the
Debtors' assets, will be 68% against the real and personal assets
of Whittle Development and 32% against the assets of Mariah Bay as
they existed on the petition date.  The City Bank loan will accrue
interest at the rate 6% and will also be payable as an
administrative claim under section 503(b)(1), upon confirmation of
a plan of reorganization.

WII COMPONENTS: Holdings Company Completes Recapitalization
-----------------------------------------------------------
On December 30, 2010, WII Holding, Inc., the parent company of WII
Components, Inc., completed a comprehensive recapitalization
pursuant to the terms of a Recapitalization Agreement, dated
December 30, 2010, by and among Parent, WII Parent Merger Corp., a
newly formed entity, OCM Mezzanine Fund II, L.P. and Olympus
Growth Fund IV, L.P. and  a Note Exchange Agreement, dated
December 30, 2010, between OCM and MergerCo.

Pursuant to the Transaction Agreements: (i) OCM transferred to
MergerCo all of its shares of Series A Preferred Stock and Common
Stock of Parent and its pay-in-kind senior notes issued by Parent
in an aggregate principal amount of approximately $33.6 million
and, in exchange therefor, MergerCo issued to OCM an aggregate of
29,713.91 shares of its Common Stock and new unsecured non-
interest bearing senior notes in a principal amount of
$23,000,000, due April 9, 2012; and (ii) Olympus transferred to
MergerCo all of the shares of Series A Preferred Stock of Parent
held by Olympus and its pay-in-kind senior subordinated notes
issued by Parent in an aggregate principal amount of approximately
$114.9 million and, in exchange therefor, MergerCo issued to
Olympus an aggregate of 139,071.406 shares of its Common Stock.

Immediately thereafter, MergerCo was merged with and into Parent,
with Parent continuing as the surviving corporation in the Merger.
Pursuant to the Merger, subject to the terms and conditions of the
Recapitalization Agreement:

   (i) each share of Common Stock of MergerCo outstanding
       immediately prior to the Merger was converted into the
       right to receive one share of Common Stock of the Surviving
       Corporation;

  (ii) each share of Series A Preferred Stock of Parent
       outstanding immediately prior to the Merger was converted
       into the right to receive one share of Common Stock of the
       Surviving Corporation;

(iii) each share of Common Stock of the Parent outstanding
       immediately prior to the Merger was converted into the
       right to receive one thousandth of a share of Common Stock
       of the Surviving Corporation; and

  (iv) each share of capital stock of Parent or MergerCo held by
       Parent or MergerCo was cancelled without consideration.

The Parent notes transferred to MergerCo in connection with the
Recapitalization were extinguished in connection with the Merger
and the New Notes issued by MergerCo were assumed by the Surviving
Corporation by operation of law in the Merger.

As a result of the Recapitalization, Olympus and OCM own
approximately 82% and 17%, respectively, of the outstanding Common
Stock of the Surviving Corporation.

                        About WII Components

WII Components Inc. manufactures hardwood cabinet doors and
related components in the United States, selling primarily to
kitchen and bath cabinet original equipment manufacturers.

At December 31, 2009, the Company had $203,077,000 in total assets
against total current liabilities of $19,929,000, long-term debt -
net of current maturities of $108,350,000, deferred income taxes
of $3,174,000, and other long-term liabilities of $2,324,000,
resulting in stockholders' equity of $69,300,000.

As reported in the TCR on Oct. 27, 2010, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services assigned its preliminary 'B-' corporate credit rating to
St. Cloud, Minn.-based WII Components Inc.  The rating outlook is
stable.  "The 'B-' preliminary corporate credit rating on WII
reflects its highly leveraged financial risk profile and
vulnerable business risk profile," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Pamela Rice.  In November 2010, S&P withdrew all of its
preliminary ratings, including its preliminary 'B-' corporate
credit rating, on WII Components because the company's proposed
$115 million senior secured notes offering was not completed.


* Canada Should Watch Debt Levels, Bankr. Superintendent Says
-------------------------------------------------------------
James Callon, who heads the Office of the Superintendent of
Bankruptcy Canada, said in the agency's Web site that while the
number of insolvencies -- bankruptcies and proposals -- filed
during the 12 months ending October 2010 was less than the number
filed during the previous 12 months ending October 2009, the
number of consumer insolvencies filed in Canada was still 22.5%
higher than the pre-recession level of 2007-2008.

"It's important for Canadians to be aware of the risks and
possible consequences of taking on a large amount of debt.
Significant events, such as a change in employment or income, a
change in family status or a serious illness, can cause a huge
drain on finances.  The combination of a large amount of debt and
the sudden occurrence of a major life event could lead to the
harsh realities of insolvency," Mr. Callon said.

Greg Quinn and Theophilos Argitis at Bloomberg News note that
Mr. Callon joins Finance Minister Jim Flaherty, Prime Minister
Stephen Harper and Bank of Canada Governor Mark Carney in
cautioning Canadians about the perils of too much debt.


* Canada Bankruptcies Rise 0.2% to 8,136 in October From Sept.
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy Canada said in its
Web site that the total number of insolvencies -- bankruptcies and
proposals -- in Canada increased by 0.2% in October 2010 from the
previous month.  Bankruptcies increased by 0.2%, whereas proposals
increased by 0.1%.  Over the past 10 years, there were only two
years when the total number of insolvencies filed in the month of
October was lower than the total number filed in September.

The total number of insolvencies in October 2010 was 9.1% lower
than the total number of insolvencies in October 2009. Consumer
insolvencies have decreased by 8.1%, while business insolvencies
have decreased by 31.7%.

For the 12-month period ending October 31, 2010, total
insolvencies decreased by 9.6% compared with the 12-month period
ending October 31, 2009.

For the 12-month period ending October 31, 2010, consumer
insolvencies decreased by 9.0% compared with the 12-month period
ending October 31, 2009.  Consumer bankruptcies decreased by
18.8%t, while consumer proposals increased by 25.4%.  For the same
period, 96.9% of total insolvencies were filed by consumers.

Business insolvencies for the 12-month period ending October 31,
2010, fell by 22.5% compared with the 12-month period ending
October 31, 2009.  A reduction in the number of insolvencies among
the manufacturing; transportation and warehousing; retail trade;
accommodation and food services; and construction sectors largely
contributed to this decrease.

The proportion of proposals in consumer insolvencies increased to
30.4% during the 12-month period ending October 31, 2010, up from
22.2% during the 12-month period ending October 31, 2009.  This
increase may be an indication that consumers are taking advantage
of changes to the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act.  The changes,
implemented on September 18, 2009, allow consumers more
flexibility in filing proposals.

In October 2010, two Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act (CCAA)
proceedings were filed.


* Massachusetts Top Court Hands Foreclosure Loss to U.S. Bancorp
----------------------------------------------------------------
Thom Weidlich at Bloomberg News reports that U.S. Bancorp and
Wells Fargo & Co., in a ruling that drove down bank stocks, lost a
foreclosure case before Massachusetts's highest court that will
guide lower courts in that state and may influence others in bank
disputes involving state real-estate law.

According to the report, the state Supreme Judicial Court on
January 7 upheld a judge's decision saying two foreclosures were
invalid because the banks didn't prove they owned the mortgages,
which he said were transferred into two mortgage-backed trusts
without the recipients' being named.

Bloomberg relates that Joshua Rosner, an analyst at the New York-
based research firm Graham Fisher & Co., called the decision "a
landmark ruling" showing that at least in Massachusetts a mortgage
"must name the assignee to be valid."

"This is likely to open the floodgates to more suits in
Massachusetts and strengthens cases in other states," Mr. Rosner
said.

"We agree with the judge that the plaintiffs, who were not the
original mortgagees, failed to make the required showing that they
were the holders of the mortgages at the time of foreclosure,"
Justice Ralph D. Gants wrote for a unanimous court.


* S&P's Global Corporate Default Tally at 77 in 2010
----------------------------------------------------
U.S.-based SuperMedia Inc. approved an amendment to allow subpar
repurchases and a subsequent tender offer on its term debt on
Dec. 20, 2010.  This raised the 2010 global corporate default
tally to 77, said an article published Jan. 7 by Standard &
Poor's, titled "Global Corporate Default Update (Dec. 17, 2010 -
Jan. 6, 2011) (Premium)."

Currently, the 2010 default tallies are 54 in the U.S., three in
Europe, nine in emerging markets, and 11 in the other developed
countries (Australia, Canada, Japan, and New Zealand).  In 2010,
27 defaults resulted from missed interest or principal payments,
while 24 defaults resulted from Chapter 11 and foreign bankruptcy
filings, 21 from distressed exchanges, three from receiverships,
and one from regulatory directives and administration.

Of the global corporate defaulters in 2010, 40% of issues with
available recovery ratings had recovery ratings of '6' (indicating
our expectation for negligible recovery of 0% to 10%), 10% of the
issues had recovery ratings of '5' (modest recovery prospects of
10% to 30%), 11% had recovery ratings of '4' (average recovery
prospects of 30% to 50%), and 17% had recovery ratings of '3'
(meaningful recovery prospects of 50% to 70%).  And for the
remaining two rating categories, 13% of the issues had recovery
ratings of '2' (substantial recovery prospects of 70% to 90%) and
10% had recovery ratings of '1' (very high recovery prospects of
90% to 100%).


* Moody's: Global Default Rate Fell to 3.1% in Fourth Quarter
-------------------------------------------------------------
The trailing 12-month global speculative-grade default rate
finished at 3.1% in the fourth quarter of 2010, down from 4.0% in
the previous quarter, Moody's Investors Service said in a new
report.  This level is close to the ratings agency's forecast of
3.3% made a year ago.  The global default rate stood much higher
at 13.1% in the fourth quarter of 2009.

The ratings agency's default rate forecasting model now predicts
that the global speculative-grade default rate will fall to 1.9%
in 2011 under a stable baseline scenario.  In a pessimistic
scenario, which incorporates a renewed liquidity freeze and
further economic contractions, the global default rate could
finish at 6.1%, while in an optimistic scenario, the
rate could dip even further to 1.2%.

"The story of 2010 is how few defaults were actually recorded,"
said Albert Metz, Managing Director of Credit Policy Research.
"Our baseline expectations call for continued stability in 2011.
But that baseline assumes that additional significant sovereign
and financial sector problems do not develop in Europe."

In the U.S., the speculative-grade default rate ended the fourth
quarter at 3.3%, also down from 4.0% in the third quarter, while
in Europe, the default rate fell to 1.9% from 3.5%. At the end of
2009, the U.S. default rate stood at 14.1% and the European rate
was 11.3%.

Moody's forecasting model projects the default rate to fall to
2.1% by December 2011 among speculative-grade issuers in the U.S.
and 1.2% among those in European.

A total of 19 Moody's-rated corporate debt issuers have defaulted
in the fourth quarter, which sends the 2010 default total to 59.
In comparison, there were 269 defaults last year of which 32 were
recorded in the fourth quarter.

The largest number of defaults came from the Media: Advertising,
Printing, & Publishing industry in 2010 with six companies in that
sector defaulting. This is followed by the Capital Equipment
sector, the Hotel, Gaming, & Leisure sector, and the Retail
sector, each of which contributed five defaults.

Across regions, 48 (or 81%) of the 2010 defaulters were from North
America while seven (or 12%) were from Europe. The remaining
defaulters were from Asia and Latin America.

Across industries over the coming year, default rates are expected
to be highest in the Consumer Transportation sector in the U.S.
and the Media: Advertising, Printing, & Publishing sector in
Europe.  Measured on a dollar volume basis, the global
speculative-grade bond default rate closed at 1.6% in 2010. The
current level is down from the level of 2.0% from the previous
quarter.  A year ago, the global dollar-weighted default rate
stood much lower at 16.4%.  In the U.S., the dollar-weighted
speculative-grade bond default rate ended the fourth quarter at
1.6%, down from third quarter's 1.8%.  The latest US dollar-
weighted bond default rate is significantly lower than the 16.6% a
year ago. In Europe, the dollar-weighted speculative-grade bond
default rate fell from 2.6% in the third quarter to 1.7% in the
final quarter of 2010.  At this time last year, the European
speculative-grade bond default rate was much higher at 13.1%.
Moody's speculative-grade corporate distress index -- which
measures the percentage of rated issuers that have debt trading at
distressed levels -- came in at 10.5% at the end of the fourth
quarter, down from the level of 15.0% in the previous quarter.  A
year ago, the index was much higher at 22.7%.

In the leveraged loan market, a total of four Moody's-rated loan
defaulters were recorded in the fourth quarter, sending the entire
year's loan default count to 23.  The trailing 12 month U.S.
leveraged loan default rate finished the fourth quarter at 2.8%,
down from 4.1% in the previous quarter.  In 2009, the U.S. loan
default rate ended at 12.0%.

                           *********

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 by e-mail.

On Thursdays, the TCR delivers a list of recently filed
Chapter 11 cases by individuals and business entities estimating
assets and debts or disclosing assets and liabilities at less than
$1,000,000.  The list includes links to freely downloadable images
of the small-dollar business-related 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.
