347 LINDEN: Dist. Ct. Rejects Renewed Bid to Block Foreclosure
--------------------------------------------------------------
On the afternoon of July 18, 2011, 347 Linden LLC brought a second
"Emergency Order to Show Cause with Temporary Restraints" to the
U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York,
requesting that it order Federal National Mortgage Association to
show cause why an order should not be entered (1) staying two
March 8, 2011 orders by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Eastern
District of New York (Rosenthal, J.) granting relief from a stay
and dismissing 347 Linden's Chapter 11 petition, and (2) staying a
state court foreclosure sale, scheduled for a third time by Fannie
Mae, of the property known as 347 Linden Street, Brooklyn, New
York 11237, Block 3328, Lot 47, for July 21, 2011 at 3:00 p.m.
According to District Judge Kiyo A. Matsumoto, although the debtor
has had notice of the third scheduled pending foreclosure sale for
several weeks, it has, for the second time, brought the
"Emergency" motion to the District Court on the eve of the sale.
Fannie Mae opposes debtor's emergency application.

Judge Matsumoto said he sees no reason why the foreclosure sale
should not proceed as scheduled. "[T]he balance of the equities
clearly favors Fannie Mae, which, without the sale, faces a
continued delay and the uncertainty of protecting its interest in
the value of the Property," Judge Matsumoto said.  "[The] Debtor's
argument that a sale will render its appeals moot is itself moot,
as debtor has had the opportunity to fully present its appeals to
this court and has lost its appeals."

Accordingly, the debtor's request for a stay of the bankruptcy
court's orders and of the foreclosure sale is denied, and the
debtor's appeals of the bankruptcy court's March 8, 2011 order
lifting the stay and dismissing the debtor's Chapter 11 proceeding
are denied in their entirety.

A copy of Judge Matsumoto's July 20, 2011 Memorandum & Order is
available at http://tinyurl.com/3c42p47from Leagle.com.

The debtor's first attempt to block foreclosure was reported in
the June 24 edition of the Troubled Company Reporter.

                         About 347 Linden

347 Linden LLC, in Monroe, New York, filed for Chapter 11
bankruptcy (Bankr. E.D.N.Y. Case No. 10-50413) on Nov. 3, 2010.
Judge Joel B. Rosenthal presides over the case.  David Carlebach,
Esq. -- david@carlebachlaw.com -- serves as bankruptcy counsel.
In its petition, the Debtor estimated assets and debts between
$1 million to $10 million.  The petition was signed by Abraham
Hoffman, managing member.

The Debtor filed an Amended Disclosure Statement and Amended Plan
of Reorganization on March 7, 2011.  The following day, the
Bankruptcy Court granted Fannie Mae's motion requesting relief
from the automatic stay, based on the court's findings that there
was cause for lifting the stay, that there was no equity in the
property, and that an effective reorganization plan was not
possible, and dismissed the Chapter 11 petition.

rate, though credit challenges would remain pronounced."


ALLIED IRISH: Reports Tentative Results of Notes Tender Offer
-------------------------------------------------------------
Allied Irish Banks, p.l.c., previously announced that it was
inviting all holders of the Bank's Notes to (i) tender any and all
of the Notes for purchase by the Bank for cash, and (ii) consent
to certain modifications of the terms of the Notes.

The AIB Offer was made upon the terms and subject to the
conditions contained in the tender and consent memorandum.

In conjunction with the invitation to tender any and all of the
Notes, the Bank invited holders of each Series of Notes to
consider, and, if thought fit, pass, the relevant Extraordinary
Resolution in relation to certain modifications of the terms of
each Series of the Notes as further described in the Tender and
Consent Memorandum.

The Bank announced the provisional aggregate nominal amount of
each Series of Notes validly tendered pursuant to the relevant AIB
Offer:

                                           Provisional Aggregate
                                             Nominal Amount of
  Notes Description                        Notes Validly Tendered
  -----------------                        ----------------------
EUR400,000,000 Subordinated Callable
Step-Up Floating Rate Notes due 2015          EUR47,936,000

GBP700,000,000 Callable Dated Subordinated
Fixed to Floating Rate Notes due July 2023    GBP35,350,000

EUR419,070,000 10.75 per cent.
Subordinated Notes due 2017                  EUR208,705,000

If the Bank accepts the Notes validly tendered for purchase, the
Bank expects that the tender offer and related consent invitation
launched on May 13, 2011, in respect of eighteen series of
securities issued by the Bank, AIB UK 1 LP, AIB UK 2 LP and AIB UK
3 LP will generate approximately EUR2.0bn of Core Tier 1 capital
following completion of the AIB Offer.

As soon as reasonably practicable after conclusion of the Meetings
on Friday, July 22, 2011, the Bank expects to announce whether (i)
it accepts for purchase Notes validly tendered in the relevant AIB
Offer and the aggregate nominal amount (if any) of Notes of each
Series accepted for purchase, and (ii) the Extraordinary
Resolutions in relation to the Notes have been passed.

Payment of the Purchase Price in respect of Notes validly tendered
in the relevant AIB Offer and accepted for purchase is expected to
be made on July 25, 2011.

                  About Allied Irish Banks, p.l.c.

Allied Irish Banks, p.l.c. -- http://www.aibgroup.com/-- is a
major commercial bank based in Ireland.  It has an extensive
branch network across the country, a head office in Dublin and a
capital markets operation based in the International Financial
Services Centre in Dublin.  AIB also has retail and corporate
businesses in the UK, offices in Europe and a subsidiary company
in the Isle of Man and Jersey (Channel Islands).

Since the onset of the global and Irish financial crisis, AIB's
relationship with the Irish Government has changed significantly.

As at Dec. 31, 2010, the Government, through the National Pension
Reserve Fund Commission ("NPRFC"), held 49.9% of the ordinary
shares of the Company (the share of the voting rights at
shareholders' general meetings), 10,489,899,564 convertible non-
voting ("CNV") shares and 3.5 billion 2009 Preference Shares.  On
April 8, 2011, the NPRFC converted the total outstanding amount of
CNV shares into 10,489,899,564 ordinary shares of AIB, thereby
increasing its holding to 92.8% of the ordinary share capital.

In addition to its shareholders' interests, the Government's
relationship with AIB is reflected through formal and informal
oversight by the Minister and the Department of Finance and the
Central Bank of Ireland, representation on the Board of Directors
(three non-executive directors are Government nominees),
participation in NAMA, and otherwise.

As reported by the TCR on May 31, 2011, KPMG, in Dublin, Ireland,
noted that there are a number of material economic, political and
market risks and uncertainties that impact the Irish banking
system, including the Company's continued ability to access
funding from the Eurosystem and the Irish Central Bank to meet its
liquidity requirements, that raise substantial doubt about the
Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

The Company reported a net loss of EUR10.16 billion on
EUR1.84 billion of interest income for 2010, compared with a net
loss of EUR2.33 billion on $2.87 billion of interest income for
2009.

The Company's balance sheet at Dec. 31, 2010, showed
EUR145.2 billion in total assets, EUR140.9 billion in total
liabilities, and stockholders' equity of EUR4.3 billion.


AMERICA WEST: Amends Conversion & Stock Purchase Pact with Denly
----------------------------------------------------------------
America West Resources, Inc., and Denly Utah Coal, LLC, entered
into a first amended and restated conversion and stock purchase
agreement whereby (i) the parties acknowledged previous advances
by Denly in the aggregate amount of $2,690,130 to the Company, of
which this principal amount and accrued interest of $11,793 was
converted into 2,701,923 shares of Company stock, (ii) Denly
converted $3,600,000 of existing indebtedness into 3,600,000
shares of common stock, and (iii) Denly agreed to purchase an
additional 298,077 shares of common stock at a purchase price of
$1 per share on or prior to Sept. 30, 2011.

On July 14, 2011, the Company and Denly entered into amendment 2
to the existing loan agreement which amended and restated certain
covenants of the loan agreement.

During July 2011, the Company sold an aggregate of 2,000,000
shares of its common stock in a private placement resulting in
gross proceeds of approximately $2,000,000.  The offers and sales
of the 2,000,000 shares of common stock were made without
registration under the Act, and the securities laws of certain
states, in reliance on the exemptions provided by Section 4(2) of
the Act and Regulation D under the Act and in reliance on similar
exemptions under applicable state laws.  The Company paid a
registered broker-dealer sales commissions of $260,000 in
connection therewith and issued such registered broker-dealer a
warrant to purchase 200,000 shares at a purchase price of $1.00
per share.

Effective July 14, 2011, John Thomas Bridge and Opportunity Fund,
LP, and John Thomas Bridge and Opportunity Fund, LP II, both
managed by George Jarkesy, Jr., a director of the Company,
converted an aggregate principal amount of $500,000 owed by the
Company into 500,000 shares of Company common stock.  The
remaining aggregate principal amount owed by the Company to John
Thomas Bridge and Opportunity Fund, LP, and John Thomas Bridge and
Opportunity Fund, LP II, after giving effect to this conversion,
is $307,321.  The Company paid John Thomas Financial, Inc.,
$65,000 in sales commissions with respect to this conversion.

Effective July 14, 2011, the holders of an aggregate of $4,465,000
of short-term indebtedness converted such debt into 4,911,500
shares of Company common stock.  The Company paid John Thomas
Financial, Inc., approximately $580,450 in sales commissions with
respect to this conversion.

                        About America West

Based in Salt Lake City, Utah, America West Resources, Inc., is an
established domestic coal producer engaged in the mining of clean
and compliant (low-sulfur) coal.  The majority of the Company's
coal is sold to utility companies for use in the generation of

$10.07 million of total revenue for the year ended Dec. 31, 2010,
compared with a net loss of $8.70 million on $11.01 million of
total revenue during the prior year.

As reported by the TCR on April 21, 2011, MaloneBailey, LLP, in
Houston, Texas, expressed substantial doubt about America West's
ability to continue as a going concern, following the 2010
financial results.  The independent auditors noted that the
Company has a working capital deficit and has incurred significant
losses.

The Company's balance sheet at March 31, 2011, showed
$28.14 million in total assets, $27.03 million in total
liabilities, and $1.11 million in total stockholders' equity.


AMR CORP: Incurs $286 Million Net Loss in Second Quarter
--------------------------------------------------------
AMR Corporation filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q, reporting a net loss
of $286 million on $6.11 billion of total operating revenues for
the three months ended June 30, 2011, compared with a net loss of
$11 million on $5.67 billion of total operating revenues for the
same period a year ago.  The Company also reported a net loss of
$722 million on $11.64 billion of total operating revenues for the
six months ended June 30, 2011, compared with a net loss of
$516 million on $10.74 million of total operating revenues during
the prior year.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2011, showed
$25.78 billion in total assets, $30.29 billion in total
liabilities, and a $4.51 billion stockholders' deficit.

"This past quarter was challenging in many respects," said AMR
Chairman and CEO Gerard Arpey.  "We remain acutely focused on
taking the necessary steps to manage through our near-term
challenges while continuing to lay the foundation for long-term
success.  We believe we have the right framework under our Flight
Plan 2020 strategy to achieve our long-term objectives for the
benefit of all our stakeholders, and today we took several major
steps forward.  I would also like to thank all of our employees
for their efforts to serve our customers, particularly during the
extreme weather conditions and tornadoes in April and May, and for
their hard work and dedication during a very busy summer."

AMR announced landmark agreements with Boeing and Airbus that will
enable it to transform American's narrowbody fleet.  These new
aircraft will allow American to reduce its operating and fuel
costs and deliver a broad range of state-of-the-art amenities to
customers, while maximizing the Company's financial flexibility.

Under the new agreements, American will acquire 460 narrowbody
aircraft from the Boeing 737 and Airbus A320 families beginning in
2013 - the largest aircraft order in aviation history.  As part of
these agreements, starting in 2017 American will become the first
U.S. network airline to begin taking delivery of "next generation"
narrowbody aircraft that will further accelerate fuel-efficiency
gains.

These new deliveries are expected to pave the way for American to
have the youngest and most fuel-efficient fleet among its U.S.
airline peers in approximately five years.  American also will
benefit from approximately $13 billion of committed financing from
the manufacturers through lease transactions that will help
maximize balance sheet flexibility and reduce risk.  The financing
fully covers the first 230 deliveries.

In addition, American now has eight Boeing 777-300ERs that are
scheduled for delivery in 2012 and 2013, including three
additional aircraft for which options were recently exercised.
These 777-300ERs will complement American's fleet, offering
additional network flexibility, and providing increased efficiency
due to better seat mile economics and performance characteristics.

Moreover, AMR announced its intent to move forward with the
divestiture of AMR Eagle Holding Corporation.  AMR currently
expects the divestiture to take the form of a spin-off of Eagle
stock to the shareholders of AMR.  Strategically, AMR believes a
divestiture would be beneficial, as it would help ensure American
maintains competitive rates and services for its regional feed
into the future.  A divestiture would also provide Eagle an
opportunity to vie for the business of other mainline carriers and
allow the carrier to expand its operations.

APPLIED DNA: Partners with Martin Against Products Counterfeiting
-----------------------------------------------------------------
C.F. Martin & Co. announced that it has partnered with Applied DNA
Sciences to protect products, brands and intellectual property
from counterfeiting and diversion.  As a result, according to both
companies, Martin's customers will be protected by the "gold
standard" in forensic anti-counterfeiting systems.

"People around the world know the high level of quality that is
inherent in each and every guitar that features the C. F. Martin
logo, and protecting our intellectual property is of vital
importance, as we face new counterfeit-related challenges at home
and abroad," said Chris (C. F.) Martin IV, the sixth-generation
Martin to serve as company chairman and CEO.

The two companies plan to announce further details about the
partnership, including timing of implementation, later this year.

"Martin Guitar has earned an unparalleled reputation for product
integrity and a commitment to exceptional quality.  Our SigNature
DNA technology will be instrumental in providing Martin Guitar
with protection against global counterfeiting threats which
ultimately protects Martin and its worldwide consumer group,"
stated APDN Chairman, President and CEO Dr. James A. Hayward.

Applied DNA Sciences has a reputation globally for its advanced
product verification systems, protecting products as diverse as
English wool, Mexican police uniforms, world-famous luxury goods,
and, in a pilot for the U.S Department of Defense, microchips
bound for the U.S military.

                         About Applied DNA

Stony Brook, N.Y.-based Applied DNA Sciences, Inc., is principally
devoted to developing DNA embedded biotechnology security
solutions in the United States.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Dec. 21, 2010,
RBSM LLP, in New York, expressed substantial doubt about Applied
DNA Sciences' ability to continue as a going concern, after
auditing the Company's financial statements for fiscal year ended
Sept. 30, 2010.  The independent auditors noted that the Company
has suffered recurring losses and does not have significant cash
or other material assets, nor does it have an established source
of revenues sufficient to cover its operations.

The Company reported a net loss of $7.91 million on $519,844 of
sales for fiscal 2010, compared with net income of $3.94 million
on $295,162 of sales for fiscal 2009.

The Company's balance sheet at March 31, 2011, showed
$1.23 million in total assets, $3.36 million in total liabilities,
all current, and a $2.12 million total stockholders' deficiency.


ASTORIA GENERATING: S&P Cuts Rating on $430MM Term Loan to CCC+
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its rating on Astoria
Generating Co. Acquisitions LLC's $430 million ($141 million
outstanding) first-lien term loan due 2013 and its $100 million
first-lien working capital facility due 2012 to 'CCC+' from 'BB-'.
"We also lowered our rating on the $300 million ($300
million outstanding) second-lien term bank loan due 2013 to 'CCC-'
from 'B'. We revised the CreditWatch implications on the ratings
to developing from negative," S&P related.

The recovery rating of '1' on first lien credit facilities is
unchanged, indicating that lenders can expect a very high (90% to
100%) recovery of their principal in a default scenario. "We
changed the recovery rating on the second-lien credit facility '5'
from '3', indicating that lenders can expect a modest recovery
(10% to 30%) if a payment default occurs," S&P stated.

The July 2011 capacity auction for New York zone 'J' resulted in a
capacity price of $5.76 per kilowatt (kW)-month, about 50% lower
compared with the clearing price of $11.76 per kW-month in the
previous auction for June 2011. The marked decline is likely due
to the addition of 550 megawatts (MW) of  capacity at the Astoria
II LLC power plant, which began operations in July 2011. The
auction result also indicates that Astoria II might not have been
mitigated under NYISO's buyer-side mitigation rules.

The disagreement among stakeholders in the market over whether or
not the rules have mitigated certain assets has heightened as
reflected in the July 11 filing to the FERC by Astoria Generating
Co. L.P. and TC Ravenswood LLC. The previous filing on June 3 by
generators that included Astoria Gen and TC Ravenswood was more
general in nature and challenged NYISO's overall implementation of
buyer-side mitigation rules. However, the recent filing directly
challenges the NYISO's application of buyer-side mitigation rules
on Astoria II and potentially, other new units including Bayonne
Energy Center (Bayonne) which they assume to be not mitigated by
the NYISO. The assumptions are based on the July auction results
and the statement made by Bayonne about its mitigation in its
protest filing. The filing requested an expedited response. They
also requested FERC to immediately issue an order requiring
Astoria II be mitigated, starting with August 2011 auction, to 75%
of mitigation of net cost of new entry, subject to refund.

"However, the FERC stated that it will conduct in the normal 20-
day comment period that ends August 3, after the August auction on
July 25. As such, we believe the capacity prices for August 2011
will be similar to that of the July auction," said Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Trevor D'Olier-Lees.

"The CreditWatch with developing implication reflects the
heightened uncertainty regarding future capacity prices in New
York zone J and that we may upgrade or downgrade the rating based
on the ultimate outcome of the proceeding with the FERC, which is
expected after August 3. If the FERC rules in the project's favor,
we could raise the ratings. We may downgrade the rating if the
opposite occurs," S&P said.


AZ CHEM: S&P Raises Corp. Credit Rating to 'B+'; Outlook Stable
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its corporate credit
ratings on Jacksonville, Fla.-based AZ Chem U.S. and on the
intermediate parent company, AZ Chem Intermediate Inc., to 'B+'
from 'B'. (AZ Chem U.S.'s current parent, Arizona Chem Sweden
Holdings AB, expects to merge into AZ Chem Intermediate Inc. by
March 31, 2012.) The outlook is stable.

"The company has achieved strong growth in operating performance
primarily due to its ability to increase pricing," said Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Seamus Ryan. "In addition, during 2011, AZ
Chem has undertaken meaningful debt reduction, which we expect to
support an improved financial profile."

At the same time, Standard & Poor's raised its issue-level ratings
on AZ Chem U.S.'s $60 million first-lien senior secured revolving
credit facility due 2015 and $430 million term loan due 2016,
which the company has partially repaid over the past two quarters,
to 'BB' (two notches above the 'B+' corporate credit rating) from
'B+'. Standard & Poor's revised the recovery rating to '1',
indicating the expectation for very high recovery (90%-100%) in
the event of a payment default, from '2'.

The ratings on AZ Chem U.S. and AZ Chem Intermediate (AZ Chem,
collectively) reflect the company's concentration in a niche
market for specialty pine-based chemicals and its very aggressive
financial policies. "But they also reflect our expectations that
favorable industry conditions should support the current financial
profile and that shareholder rewards will not increase debt
leverage beyond what we consider appropriate at the current
rating," Mr. Ryan said. Standard & Poor's characterizes AZ Chem's
business risk profile as weak and its financial risk profile as
aggressive.

"Our assessment of the company's financial risk profile
incorporates our view of the risks related to its financial
policy," Mr. Ryan said. "The limited track record of financial
policy under the new ownership and the potential for higher
leverage due to shareholder-friendly actions are primary risk
factors."

Privately held company AZ Chem, along with its operating
subsidiaries, is the largest global producer of pine-based
chemicals, which are used in adhesives, inks and coatings,
lubricants, fuel additives, and other applications. Major
end users include the packaging and bookbinding market and inks
and coatings manufacturers.


BANK OF CHOICE: Closed; Bank Midwest N.A. Assumes All Deposits
--------------------------------------------------------------
Bank of Choice of Greeley, Colo., was closed on Friday, July 22,
2011, by the Colorado Division of Banking, which appointed the
Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation as receiver.  To protect the
depositors, the FDIC entered into a purchase and assumption
agreement with Bank Midwest, National Association, of Kansas City,
Mo., to assume all of the deposits of Bank of Choice.

The 17 branches of Bank of Choice will reopen during their normal
business hours as branches of Bank Midwest, N.A.  Depositors of
Bank of Choice will automatically become depositors of Bank
Midwest, N.A.  Deposits will continue to be insured by the FDIC,
so there is no need for customers to change their banking
relationship in order to retain their deposit insurance coverage
up to applicable limits.  Customers of Bank of Choice should
continue to use their existing branch until they receive notice
from Bank Midwest, N.A., that it has completed systems changes to
allow other Bank Midwest, N.A., branches to process their accounts
as well.

As of March 31, 2011, Bank of Choice had around $1.07 billion in
total assets and $924.9 million in total deposits.  In addition to
assuming all of the deposits, Bank Midwest, N.A., agreed to
purchase around $853.0 million of the failed bank's assets.

Customers with questions about the transaction should call the
FDIC toll-free at 1-800-887-7340.  Interested parties also can
visit the FDIC's Web site at

http://www.fdic.gov/bank/individual/failed/bankofchoice.html

As part of this transaction, the FDIC will acquire a value
appreciation instrument.  This instrument serves as additional
consideration for the transaction.

The FDIC estimates that the cost to the Deposit Insurance Fund
will be $213.6 million.  Compared to other alternatives, Bank
Midwest, N.A.'s acquisition was the least costly resolution for
the FDIC's DIF.  Bank of Choice is the 58th FDIC-insured
institution to fail in the nation this year, and the fifth in
Colorado.  The last FDIC-insured institution closed in the state
was Signature Bank, Windsor, on July 8, 2011.


BANK OF IRELAND: DBRS Lowers Subordinated Debt Rating to 'D'
------------------------------------------------------------
DBRS Inc. has downgraded the ratings of certain subordinated debt
issued by The Governor and Company of the Bank of Ireland to "D"
from "C".  The downgrade follows the execution of the Group's note
exchange offer.

Almost all of these instruments have been extinguished.  The
default status for the exchanged or purchased and now-extinguished
notes reflect DBRS's view that bondholders were offered limited
options, which is considered a default under DBRS policy, as
discussed in DBRS's press release dated 13 June 2011.

However, the holders of the Dated Subordinated Notes due Sept 2015
(ISIN CA062786AA67) issued by Bank of Ireland have until 8 August
2011 to tender their notes and vote on the extraordinary
resolutions as put forth by the Bank of Ireland.  As such, the
rating of this security remains at "C", Under Review with Negative
Implications, where they were placed on 1 October 2010, pending
the finalisation of the exchange results.  Previously, DBRS
maintained one rating on its website for all Dated Subordinated
Debt issued by the Bank of Ireland.  To reflect that this security
remains outstanding, DBRS has individually listed this security on
its website.

Moreover, holders of certain subordinated instruments of the Bank
of Ireland rejected the proposed extraordinary resolutions
included in the exchange offer; as such, the ratings of these
instruments will remain at "C", Under Review with Negative
Implications, where they were placed on 1 October 2010.  Similar
to the aforementioned notes, to reflect the results of the
exchange offer, DBRS has individually listed each subordinate bond
that remains outstanding on its website.


BARZEL INDUSTRIES: Files Amended Joint Plan of Liquidation
----------------------------------------------------------
BankruptcyData.com reports that Barzel Industries filed with the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court an Amended Joint Plan of Liquidation and
related Disclosure Statement.

According to the Disclosure Statement, "The Debtors are proposing
the Plan over the alternative of converting the Debtors'
bankruptcy cases to Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code because the
Debtors believe that (i) the Plan provides a more orderly
liquidation and a greater recovery to creditors than a Chapter 7
liquidation, and (ii) the Plan provides unnecessary costs to the
Debtors' estates which would accrue should the Debtors' bankruptcy
cases be converted to Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code."

Under the Plan, administrative claims, priority tax and non tax
claims, class 1 miscellaneous secured claims, and class 3 priority
non-tax claims are estimated to receive 100% recovery.

BERNARD L MADOFF: Judge Criticizes $62.5-Mil. HSBC Settlement Deal
------------------------------------------------------------------
Christie Smythe at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that New York Federal
Judge Richard M. Berman on Thursday criticized parts of HSBC
Holdings PLC's proposed $62.5 million settlement of a class action
brought by Irish feeder fund investors who lost money in Bernard
L. Madoff's Ponzi scheme.

Law360 relates that Judge Berman took issue with a proposed $10
million "war chest" included in the deal that would allow lead
plaintiff Neville Seymour Davis to pursue litigation against other
defendants, including Bank Medici AG and its Austrian chief, Sonja
Kohn.

                      About Bernard L. Madoff

Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC and Bernard L. Madoff
orchestrated the largest Ponzi scheme in history, with losses
topping $50 billion.  On Dec. 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 July 15, 2011, a total of $6.88 billion in claims by
investors has been allowed, with $794.9 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.

BRICOLAGE CAPITAL: Ernst & Young to Face Tax Shelter Case
---------------------------------------------------------
Eric Hornbeck at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that a New York state
judge ruled Wednesday that Ernst & Young LLP must face fraud
allegations over shady tax shelters, part of a wide-ranging
scandal that bankrupted Bricolage Capital LLC and ensnared
attorneys and other individuals in criminal charges.

According to Law360, Ernst & Young argued that the advice it gave
Bricolage Capital about tax shelters, known as personal investment
corporations, were opinions and not misrepresentations, but
New York Supreme Court Judge Barbara R. Kapnick rejected that
argument because two accounting firm principals were later
convicted.

Headquartered in New York, New York, Bricolage Capital LLC filed
for chapter 11 protection (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 05-46914) on
Oct. 14, 2005.  Robert E. Grossman, Esq., Lawrence J. Kotler,
Esq., and Matthew E. Hoffman, Esq., at Duane Morris LLP represent
the Debtor in its restructuring efforts.  No Official Committee of
Unsecured Creditors has been appointed in the Debtor's case.  The
Debtor estimated assets of $1 million to $10 million and debts of
$10 million to $50 million as of the Chapter 11 filing.


CARLISLE APARTMENTS: Can Obtain $28.5-Mil. in DIP Loans from NXT
----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Stuart M. Bernstein of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York authorized The Carlisle Apartments,
L.P., to obtain $28,500,000 postpetition financing from NXT
Capital LLC to consummate the settlement agreement with Compass
Bank and permit the consensual use of cash collateral.

The Settlement with the Bank provides the means by which Debtor
can extinguish all obligations between Debtor and the Bank,
including its note and concomitant swap obligation owing from
Debtor to the Bank, at a discount of 10%, which provides Debtor
with significant savings.  Under the settlement, the Bank will
extinguish all of the Debtor's obligations for $30 million.  The
Debtor will also pay a prepetition swap obligation owed to the
Bank at closing in the amount of $26,382.

The Bank's obligation to consummate the Transaction is contingent
upon, among other things, (a) the Transaction being consummated no
later than July 28, 2011, and the payment by RECAP Investments XI
- Fund A, L.P., and RECAP Investments XI - Fund B, L.P., of a
$2,000,000 non-refundable deposit.

At the closing of the Transaction, the Debtor and RECAP, on the
one hand, and the Bank, on the other hand, will exchange mutual
releases releasing one another from any and all liabilities in
respect of the Debtor, including a release of the guarantee
obligations of RECAP, and said releases are hereby authorized and
directed.

If the Transaction is consummated by the Outside Date, the
$2 million deposit and any interest it earns will be applied to
the Transaction Price.

If the Transaction is not consummated on or before the Outside
Date, then on the day following the Outside Date, and provided
that the Bank did not default on its obligation to consummate the
Transaction, the Bank will apply the Deposit and any interest
earned thereon to reduce the principal outstanding under the Note,
and the Debtor's interest payments will be reduced accordingly.

If the Transaction is not consummated, but a plan of
reorganization is confirmed within 75 days of the filing of the
Plan, then the Deposit and any interest earned thereon will be
applied against the cash pay-down to the Bank required under the
Plan.

If neither the Transaction nor the Plan is consummated, then the
Bank may apply the Deposit and any interest earned thereon in
accordance with the documents governing the Obligations and
applicable law; provided, however, that the Bank must promptly
give RECAP an accounting of how the Deposit is being applied.

Within one week from the 46th day following June 13, 2011, if the
Transaction has not been consummated, the Debtor will file the
Plan, and the Bank will support confirmation of the Plan for a
period of 75 days from the date of the filing of the Plan, but
thereafter will have no obligation to do so.  From the date of the
filing of the Plan, and without regard to the status of the
Transaction, the Debtor will pursue confirmation of the Plan in
good faith.  If the Transaction is consummated prior to the date
set for a hearing on confirmation of the Plan, then the Debtor may
withdraw or amend the Plan.

If the Transaction has not been consummated by the Outside Date,
and provided, that the Debtor has filed the Plan in accordance
with the terms of the Settlement, then at the sole option of the
Bank, the Outside Date will be extended for two weeks provided
that RECAP will provide to the Bank an additional deposit.
Thereafter, the Bank, at its sole option, and upon the request of
the Debtor, may grant additional one week extensions of the
Outside Date, and for each extension granted, the Transaction
Price will increase by $100,000.

If, and only if, the Transaction is consummated, the Debtor or
RECAP will reimburse the Bank for its reasonable expenses,
including attorney fees, related solely to the Transaction, up to
a maximum amount of $75,000.

The Court also granted NXT a first priority deed of trust on the
Debtor's property known as Phillips University Center, a 372-unit,
garden style apartment complex in Charlotte, North Carolina.

                   Additional Terms of DIP Debt

The Postpetition Debt will bear an interest rate equal to a
floating rate per annum equal to the aggregate of 4% plus the Base
Rate, but in no event will the Interest Rate be lower than 6.75%.
So long as the Debtor remains in bankruptcy, the Interest Rate
will be 7.50%.

A $15,000 application fee, plus a $99,100 good faith deposit, is
required with submission of the loan application.  RECAP has
advanced these sums as an equity contribution to Debtor, and the
Debtor is authorized to account for it as such.

The Loan Fee is 1.25% of the Maximum Amount.

Upon payment of the Postpetition Debt in full, whether at Maturity
or on any other date, the Debtor will pay to Postpetition Lender
the Exit Fee plus the Minimum Interest Recovery.  Upon any partial
repayment of the Postpetition Debt, Debtor will pay to
Postpetition Lender the pro rata portion of the Exit Fee allocable
to the amount of Postpetition Debt being repaid, and upon final
payment in full of the Postpetition Debt, the Exit Fee due
Postpetition Lender will be reduced by any portions of the
Exit Fee previously received by Postpetition Lender and applied
toward the Exit Fee as a result of any previous partial repayment
of Postpetition Debt.

The Exit Fee is equal to $427,500; provided however, that in the
event the Debtor has not exited from bankruptcy within 90 days
from the Closing Date without triggering a Termination Date, the
Exit Fee will be $570,000.  In the event the Debtor has not exited
from bankruptcy without triggering a Termination Date within 150
days from the Closing Date, the Exit Fee will be $712,500.

The minimum interest recovery is the amount, if any, by which
$1,923,750 exceeds the amount of interest actually paid by Debtor
to Postpetition Lender prior to repayment of the Postpetition Debt
in full or acceleration of the Postpetition Debt.

The postpetition financing will mature three years from the
Closing Date, subject to an optional one year extension.

The Postpetition Debt is granted superpriority administrative
expense status under Section 364(c)(1) of the Bankruptcy Code,
with priority over all costs and expenses of administration of the
Cases that are incurred under any provision of the Code.  In
addition, Postpetition Lender is granted the Postpetition Liens,
to secure the Postpetition Debt.

There will be a Carveout for Professionals not exceeding $434,750.
A Carveout for a Chapter 7 Trustee is pegged at $30,000.  There is
also a Carveout for all fees which become due and owing to the
U.S. Trustee.  The Carveout with respect to the U.S. Trustee Fees
will be paid out of any prepetition retainer or property of the
estate before such payments are made from proceeds of the
Postpetition Debt or the Postpetition Collateral.

                    About Circle Entertainment

Circle Entertainment Inc. (CEXE.PK), formerly FX Real Estate and
Entertainment Inc., owns 17.72 contiguous acres of land located at
the southeast corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Harmon Avenue in
Las Vegas, Nevada.  The Las Vegas Property is currently occupied
by a motel and several commercial and retail tenants with a mix of
short and long-term leases.  On June 23, 2009, as a result of the
default under the first mortgage loan, the first lien lenders had
a receiver appointed to take control of the property.  The Company
is headquartered in New York City.

The Company's balance sheet at March 31, 2011, showed
$1.97 million in total assets, $4.38 million in total liabilities,
and a $2.41 million total stockholders' deficit.

The Company disclosed in its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended
June 30, 2010, that it has no current cash flow and cash on hand
as of Aug. 13, 2010, is not sufficient to fund its short-term
liquidity requirements, including its ordinary course obligations
as they come due.  On April 21, 2010, the Company's remaining Las
Vegas subsidiary, namely FX Luxury Las Vegas I, LLC, filed for
Chapter 11 in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Nevada
(Case No. 10-17015).

The Company's Las Vegas subsidiary filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy
on April 21, 2010, and a plan of liquidation or reorganization
will eventually be implemented under which the Company will
surrender ownership of the Las Vegas Property.  Under such a plan,
it is extremely unlikely the Company will receive any material
interest or benefit.

The Company reported net income of $346.81 million on $0 of
revenue for the year ended Dec. 31, 2010, compared with a net loss
of $114.68 million on $0 of revenue during the prior year.  The
net profit generated in the year was primarily on account of a
$390.75 million gain from discharge of net assets due to
bankruptcy plan.  The Company's operating subsidiary sought
Chapter 11 protection last year.

As reported by the TCR on April 11, 2011, L.L. Bradford & Company,
LLC, in Las Vegas, Nevada, expressed substantial doubt about the
Company's ability to continue as a going concern.  The independent
auditors noted that the Company has limited available cash, has a
working capital deficiency and will need to secure new financing
or additional capital in order to pay its obligations.


CONTESSA PREMIUM: Closes Sale to Sun Capital Partners
-----------------------------------------------------
Dow Jones' DBR Small Cap reports that private equity firm Sun
Capital Partners Inc. completed its purchase of the assets of

bankruptcy proceeding.

As reported in the July 8, 2011 edition of the Troubled Company
Reporter, reports that that an affiliate of Sun Capital Partners
Inc. made a bid of $27 million and won the auction to buy Contessa
Premium Foods Inc.  The sale included a new manufacturing facility
in Commerce, California, designed to be the "world's first
environmentally friendly frozen food processing center," a court
filing said.

Sun Capital, a Boca Raton, Florida-based private-equity investor,
paid $55 million in June to buy U.S. subsidiaries of Mexican
glassmaker Vitro SAB in a Chapter 11 sale.

Contessa's sales fell from a peak of $221 million in 2007 to
$154 million in 2010, according to court papers.  Consumers are
buying less expensive alternatives to privately owned Contessa's
products, the filing said.

Los Angeles-based law firm Rutter Hobbs & Davidoff represented
Contessa CEO John Blazevich in the transaction.  Attorneys Brian
Davidoff, Benjamin Alexander and Nancy Morgan of Rutter Hobbs &
Davidoff represented and advised Blazevich through the bankruptcy
and final transaction.

COUNTRYWIDE FIN'L: Borrowers to Get $108 Million in Refunds
-----------------------------------------------------------
American Bankruptcy Institute reports that the Federal Trade
Commission said that, as a result of a settlement reached with the
Countrywide Financial more than a year ago, it is sending out
checks totaling nearly $108 million to more than 450,000 former
Countrywide borrowers.

Based in Calabasas, California, Countrywide Financial Corporation
(NYSE: CFC) -- http://www.countrywide.com/-- originated,
purchased, securitized, sold, and serviced residential and
commercial loans.

In mid-2008, Bank of America completed its purchase of Countrywide
for $2.5 billion.  The mortgage lender was originally priced at
$4 billion, but the purchase price eventually was whittled down to
$2.5 billion based on BofA's stock prices that fell over 40% since
the time it agreed to buy the ailing lender.

CROWN MEDIA: S&P Assigns 'B' Corp. Credit Rating; Outlook Stable
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned Studio City, Calif.-
based cable network company Crown Media Holdings Inc. its 'B'
corporate credit rating. The outlook is stable.

"At the same time, we assigned issue-level ratings to the
company's new debt issues, which consist of a $30 million
superpriority senior secured revolving credit facility due 2016, a
$210 million senior secured term loan due 2018, and $300 million
of senior unsecured notes due 2019. The company used the proceeds
of the new debt issues to repay term loans and redeem preferred
stock," S&P related.

"We rate the revolving credit facility 'BB-' (two notches higher
than the 'B' corporate credit rating on the company) with a
recovery rating of '1', indicating our expectation of very high
(90% to 100%) recovery for lenders in the event of a payment
default. We also rate the senior secured term loan 'BB-' with a
'1' recovery rating," S&P stated.

"In addition, we assigned the senior notes our issue-level rating
of 'B-' (one notch lower than the corporate credit rating) with a
recovery rating of '5', indicating our expectation of modest (10%
to 30%) recovery for noteholders in the event of a payment
default," S&P related.

"These rating assignments follow our review of the final
transaction documentation," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Deborah Kinzer.

Crown Media owns and operates two cable TV channels, the Hallmark
Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel, in the U.S. Neither channel is
fully distributed, with the Hallmark Channel reaching about 87.7
million subscribers and the Hallmark Movie Channel reaching about
41 million subscribers, compared with about 105 million total
domestic cable and satellite TV subscribers, after 10 years of
operation for the company. Some cable operators do not put the
company's channels on their basic tier, particularly the movie
channel, which leads to lower penetration and lower subscription
and ad revenue. Crown Media's proportion of subscription revenue
to total revenue is only about 25%, compared with 40%-50% for
other cable network companies. Advertising revenue forms the
remaining three-fourths of total revenue, and growth in ad revenue
is subject to both economic conditions and audience ratings. Apart
from special programming aired during the holiday season, the
networks' audience ratings are low. The Hallmark Channel ranked
22nd among cable channels in total day viewership in the first
quarter of 2011, and the Hallmark Movie Channel ranked 42nd. The
company is introducing new daytime content in an attempt to
attract higher audience ratings and younger viewers, but initially
this has resulted in confusion among viewers and ratings declines.

"We expect the company to benefit from the generally favorable ad
demand in 2011, but achievement of more rapid ad revenue and
subscription revenue growth will depend on the company's ability
to attract more viewers with appealing new programming, which is
likely to take several years and additional investment," said Ms.
Kinzer. "Over the longer term, we expect Crown Media and other
cable network companies to face growing competition from the
Internet and other forms of digital media, which could lower
audience share and lessen attractiveness as an advertising
medium."

"The stable rating outlook reflects our expectation that the
company could reduce its lease-adjusted leverage over the
intermediate term through EBITDA growth and modest debt repayment,
barring any unforeseen events," S&P said.


DAVE & BUSTERS: S&P Puts 'B-' Credit Rating on Watch Positive
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its ratings on Dallas-
based Dave & Buster's Inc., including its 'B-' corporate credit
rating, on CreditWatch with positive implications.

The CreditWatch placement follows Dave & Buster's parent's
announced IPO to raise capital that it plans to use to reduce
debt. According to the SEC filing, the target is to raise gross
proceeds of approximately $150 million.

"We believe the company could use the proceeds from the
prospective IPO to delever the balance sheet, resulting in
improved credit protection measures," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Andy Sookram. "Pro forma for the planned
debt reduction, leverage declines to around 5.8x from 6.9x at May
1, 2011. In addition, funds from operations to debt increases to
slightly over 10% from 8%. These credit metrics are commensurate
with the 'B' rating category, given our view of its business risk
profile as vulnerable."

"We aim to resolve the CreditWatch listing when the IPO is
completed, with a possible outcome of a one-notch raising of the
corporate credit rating, to 'B' from 'B-'. Additional support for
an upgrade comes from our expectation that operating performance
will remain good because of increasing customer traffic due to
promotional activities and higher selling prices. We will also
review the company's business prospects and financial policies for
the near term," S&P said.

DOLLAR GENERAL: S&P Raises Corporate Credit Rating to 'BB+'
-----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its ratings on discount
retailer Dollar General Corp. to 'BB+' from 'BB'. The outlook is
stable.  "At the same time, we removed all ratings from
CreditWatch with positive implications, where they were placed on
June 17, 2011," S&P stated.

The upgrade follows the announcement that Dollar General redeemed
all $839.3 million outstanding 10.625% senior notes due 2015 using
cash on the balance sheet and about $300 million in borrowings
under its revolving credit facility.  "We also withdrew the issue
and recovery rating on those notes," S&P said.

"The ratings on Dollar General reflect our expectation that the
company's value-focused merchandising strategy and continued store
expansion will sustain the positive operating momentum," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Ana Lai, "and contribute to
further improvement in credit measures."


DOUBLE G ARROWHEAD: Ruling Vacated in VCC Prepayment Clause Issue
-----------------------------------------------------------------
District Judge David G. Campbell vacated a Dec. 13, 2010 order of
the Bankruptcy Court denying one of VCC Healthcare Fund, LLC's
claims against Double G Arrowhead Orchards Limited Partnership as
an unenforceable penalty, and remanded for further proceedings.
Arrowhead borrowed $19 million on a 10-year commercial note,
secured by commercial property located in Glendale, Arizona.  The
property is Arrowhead's sole substantial asset.  VCC owns the
lender's rights to the note.  Arrowhead defaulted on the note, VCC
accelerated the note and initiated foreclosure, and Arrowhead
filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.  VCC filed claims for $17,937,304
in principal repayment and $356,748 in accrued interest and late
fees.  When Arrowhead filed a motion seeking permission to auction
the property securing the note and to use the proceeds to pay
claims of VCC and other creditors, VCC took the position that
auctioning the property would trigger a prepayment clause in the
note and require an additional payment to VCC of $4,576,429.
Arrowhead objected, and the Bankruptcy Court held that VCC's
recovery would be limited to VCC's actual damages because the
Prepayment Clause is an "unenforceable penalty" under Arizona law.

VCC argues that the Bankruptcy Court erred as a matter of law in
finding that (1) the Prepayment Clause was a liquidated damages
provision, and (2) the Prepayment Clause was unenforceable as a
penalty. Arrowhead responds that both findings were correct as a
matter of law.

Applying de novo review, the District Court held that under
Arizona law (1) the harm caused by any breach of the note was, at
the time of contracting, incapable or very difficult of accurate
estimation, and (2) Arrowhead has not shown that the Prepayment
Clause failed, at the time of contracting, to provide a reasonable
forecast of just compensation for the harm caused by any future
breach.  Arrowhead therefore has failed to show that the
Prepayment Clause is an unenforceable penalty under Arizona law.

The case is VCC Healthcare Fund, LLC, v. Double G Arrowhead
Orchards Limited Partnership, No. CV11-0004 (D. Ariz.).  A

DSI HOLDINGS: Taps Rothschild Inc. as Exclusive Financial Advisor
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Kevin J. Carey of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Delaware authorized DSI Holdings, Inc., and its
debtor-affiliates to employ Rothschild Inc. as exclusive financial
advisor and investment banker.

The Debtors believe that the nature of their business
relationships with vendors is fragile and thus, it is crucial for
the business to emerge from Chapter 11 quickly as possible.  To
ensure a timely sale process and maximum value for the Debtors'
assets, it is essential to retain a financial advisor who has the
capability to conduct an auction for the Debtors' business as a
going concern.  Prepetition, Rothschild has provided advisory
services to the Debtors.

Rothschild is expected to, among other things:

   a) evaluate the Debtors' debt capacity in light of its
   projected cash flows and assist in the determination of an
   appropriate capital structure for the Debtors;

   b) determine the range of values for the Debtors and any
   securities that the Debtors offer or propose to offer in
   connection with a transaction; and

   c) advise the Debtors on the risks and benefits of considering
   a transaction with respect to the Debtors' intermediate and
   long-term business prospects and strategic alternatives to
   maximize the business enterprise value of the Debtors.

In consideration of the services to be provided by Rothschild, the
Debtors agreed to pay Rothschild in cash pursuant to these fee
structure:

   a) an monthly advisory fee of $15,000;

   b) a completion fee of (i) 1,900,000 or (ii) $1,000,000, each
   fee payable immediately upon the earlier of (A) the
   confirmation and effectiveness of a plan and (B) the closing of
   another transaction provided that the plan or other transaction
   allows a material portion of the Debtors' business to continue
   as a going concern.

   c) a new capital fee equal to (i) 1.0% of the face amount of
   any senior secured debt raised including, without limitation,
   and DIP financing raised; (ii) 2.0% of the face amount of any
   senior or subordinated unsecured debt raised; and (iii) 3.0% of
   any equity capital, or capital convertible into equity, raised.

   d) a discretionary fee of up to $500,000, in the event that a
   successful outcome with respect to the transaction has been
   achieved;

   e) additional fees for additional services not contemplated in
   the engagement letter; and

   f) fee credits against completion fee 50% of any new capital
   fees paid and 25% of any monthly fees paid, provided that these
   fee credits will not exceed the completion fee.

To the best of the Debtors' knowledge, Rothschild is a
"disinterested person" as that term is defined in Section 101(14)
of the Bankruptcy Code.

DYNACAST INT'L: S&P Assigns 'B' Corporate Credit Rating
-------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'B' corporate
credit rating to Charlotte, N.C.-based Dynacast International LLC.
"At the same time, we assigned a 'BB-' issue-level rating (two
notches higher than the corporate credit rating) to the company's
$100 million credit facility. This facility includes a $50 million
term loan and $50 million revolver. The recovery rating is '1',
indicating our expectation of very high (90% to 100%) recovery in
a payment default scenario. The $350 million senior secured
second-lien notes are rated 'B' (the same as the corporate credit
rating), with a '4' recovery rating indicating our expectation of
average (30%-50%) recovery in a payment default scenario. The
outlook is stable," S&P said.

The ratings on Dynacast reflect its weak business risk profile and
highly leveraged financial risk profile. The company is the
largest player in the niche precision die cast components
industry. Dynacast's end-market diversity is limited, with over
one third of its revenues generated from the highly cyclical
automotive industry. Other end markets include consumer
electronics, health care, and computer and datacom. Customer
concentration is significant with one customer accounting for
about 10% of sales. Good geographic diversity and the ability to
pass on raw material costs somewhat offset these risks. Although
profitability weakened in the recent past due to the economic
recession, the complexity of the products and the small percentage
of the customer's total product cost that Dynacast's products
comprise enabled the company to generate good operating margins of
about 18% in 2010. "We expect the company to maintain this level
of profitability," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Sarah
Wyeth.

Pro forma for the transaction, the ratio of total debt (including
operating leases, pension obligations, and preferred equity, which
we view as debt-like) to EBITDA is about 5.9x, and the ratio of
funds from operations (FFO) to total debt is less than 10%. "For
the ratings, we expect total debt to EBITDA of 5x to 6x and FFO to
total debt of 10%," said Ms. Wyeth.

The outlook is stable. Standard & Poor's could lower the ratings
if a cyclical downturn in Dynacast's primary end markets resulted
in increased competition and weak operating performance. While the
company's business risk profile could support a modestly higher
rating, this would be predicated on leverage sustained below 5x
and policies consistent with a higher rating.


EASTMAN KODAK: Exploring Strategic Options for Digital Imaging
--------------------------------------------------------------
Eastman Kodak Company announced that it is exploring strategic
alternatives related to its digital imaging patent portfolios, a
move reflecting the current heightened market demand for
intellectual property.

Kodak's portfolios include more than 1,100 U.S. patents pertaining
to capturing, processing, storing, organizing, editing, and
sharing digital images, as well as imaging monetization
applications, which are fundamental to the digital imaging
industry.  Those patents represent approximately 10% of Kodak's
total U.S. patent portfolio.

To assist in this effort, Kodak has retained Lazard LLC as its
adviser.  As the effort proceeds, Kodak will continue to pursue
its successful patent licensing program as well as all litigation
related to its digital imaging technology.

"Given recent trends in the marketplace for intellectual property,
we believe the time is right to explore smart, opportunistic
alternatives for our digital imaging patent portfolios," said
Laura G. Quatela, Kodak's General Counsel and a Senior Vice
President of the company.  "This effort reaffirms our commitment
to the three pillars of our intellectual property strategy --
design freedom, access to new markets and partnerships, and cash
generation."

Kodak invented the digital camera and since then has pioneered
many of the major advances in digital imaging devices, systems and
services.  The company's portfolios of more than 1,100 digital
imaging patents - plus foreign counterparts and related patent
applications - comprise the world's richest collection of imaging-
related technology.

                       About Eastman Kodak

Headquartered in Rochester, New York, Eastman Kodak Company
(NYSE:EK) -- http://www.kodak.com/-- provides imaging technology
products and services to the photographic and graphic
communications markets.

The Company's balance sheet at March 31, 2011, showed
$5.88 billion in total assets, $7.15 billion in total liabilities,
and a $1.27 billion total deficit.

                           *     *     *

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on March 2, 2011,
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit
rating on Eastman Kodak to 'CCC' from 'B-'.  S&P removed the
rating from CreditWatch, where S&P placed it with negative
implications on Jan. 26, 2011.  The rating outlook is negative.
Issue-level ratings on the company's debt were also lowered and
removed from CreditWatch in conjunction with the corporate credit
rating change.

The 'CCC' corporate credit rating reflects S&P's expectation that
Eastman Kodak's pace of cash consumption will remain high over the
near term.  It also reflects S&P's expectation of continued
secular volume decline of the traditional photographic products
and services business, that the company's consumer digital imaging
businesses will not quickly turn convincingly profitable, and that
intellectual property earnings, which constitute a significant
portion of the company's EBITDA, could decline significantly from
2010 levels.  These factors underpin S&P's view of Kodak's
business risk as vulnerable and support S&P's view that revenue
and EBITDA will decline in 2011.  S&P views the company's
financial risk profile as highly leveraged because of the risk
that its earnings and cash flow could become insufficient to
support its debt.

In the March 16, 2011 edition of the TCR, Fitch Ratings has
affirmed its 'CCC' Issuer Default Rating on Kodak.  The ratings
and Negative Outlook reflect Kodak's continued struggles to gain
traction in its digital businesses as secular declines persist and
broaden to entertainment film within the traditional film
business.

In March, Moody's Investors Service demoted Kodak's corporate
rating to Caa1 coupled with a judgment the company "could" consume
$600 million to $700 million in cash during 2011.  Moody's noted
that Kodak has no material debt maturities until November 2013.


ENERTECK CORP: Inks $4 Million Investment Agreement with Kodiak

                     About Enerteck Corporation

EnerTeck Corporation (OTC BB: ETCK.OB) -- http://www.enerteck.net/
-- was incorporated in 1935 and is based in Stafford, Texas.  The
Company develops, acquires and manufactures combustion
enhancement, emission reduction and other performance improvement
technologies for the heavy duty transportation industry.
EnerTeck's flagship product, EnerBurn(TM), is a diesel fuel
specific combustion catalyst, delivered to the engine via the
diesel fuel, to improve the combustion rate of the fuel.

The Company reported a net loss of $2.76 million on $231,314 of
product sales for the year ended Dec. 31, 2010, compared with a
net loss of $2.05 million on $404,335 of product sales during the
prior year.

The Company's balance sheet at March 31, 2011, showed $762,453 in
total assets, $3.07 million in total liabilities and a $1.98
million total stockholders' deficit.

                        Going Concern Doubt

During the years ended Dec. 31, 2010 and 2009, the Company
incurred recurring net losses of $2,763,000 and $2,054,000,
respectively.  In addition, at Dec. 31, 2010, the Company has an
accumulated deficit of $24,214,474.  These conditions raise
substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a
going concern, according to the Form 10-K.

The Company's continuation as a going concern is contingent upon
its ability to obtain additional financing and to generate
revenues and cash flow to meet its obligations on a timely basis.
Management believes that sales revenues for 2010 and 2009 were
considerably less than earlier anticipated primarily due to
circumstances which have been corrected or are in the process of
being corrected.   Management expects that marine, railroad and
trucking sales should show significant increases in 2011 over what
has been generated in the past, as a result of the expected
outcome of long term client demonstrations from several extremely
large new clients will take place during 2011 and 2012.

The Company has been able to generate working capital in the past
through private placements and issuing promissory notes and
believes that these avenues will remain available to the Company
if additional financing is necessary.


FAIRFIELD SENTRY: Two Greenwich Affiliates File Chapter 11 Plans
----------------------------------------------------------------
Kaitlin Ugolik at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that two bankrupt
Fairfield Greenwich Group affiliates that acted as feeder funds
for Bernard L. Madoff's massive Ponzi scheme filed Chapter 11
plans Wednesday in New York incorporating a recent $212 million
settlement with Madoff trustee Irving Picard.

Greenwich Sentry LP, one of the Fairfield Greenwich Group funds
that invested in Madoff's multibillion-dollar Ponzi scheme, says
it will allow Mr. Picard to file a claim in the amount of
$206 million, and Greenwich Sentry Partners LP says it will allow
the trustee to seek $5.9 million, according to Law360.

                     About Fairfield Sentry

Fairfield Sentry is being liquidated under the supervision of the
Commercial Division of the High Court of Justice in the British
Virgin Islands.  It is one of the funds owned by the Fairfield
Greenwich Group, an investment firm founded in 1983 in New York
City.  Fairfield Sentry and other Greenwich funds had among the
largest exposures to the Bernard L. Madoff fraud.

Fairfield Sentry Limited filed for Chapter 15 protection (Bankr.
S.D.N.Y. Case No. 10-13164) on June 14, 2010.

Greenwich Sentry, L.P., and an affiliate filed for Chapter 11
protection (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 10-16229) on Nov. 19, 2010,
hoping to settle lawsuits filed against it in connection with its
investments with Bernard L. Madoff.

On May 18, 2009, Irving H. Picard, the trustee liquidating the
estate of Mr. Madoff and his firm, Bernard L. Madoff Investment
Securities, LLC, filed a lawsuit against Fairfield Sentry and
Greenwich, seeking the return of US$3.55 billion that Fairfield
withdrew from Madoff during the period from 2002 to Madoff's
arrest in December 2008.  Since 1995, the Fairfield funds invested
about US$4.5 billion with BLMIS.

Mr. Picard claims that Fairfield knew or should have known about
the fraud give that it received from BLMIS unrealistically high
and consistent annual returns of between 10% and 21% in contrast
to the vastly larger fluctuations in the S&P 100 Index.


FAIRWAY COMMONS II: Roseville Wants Receiver Excused from Turnover
------------------------------------------------------------------
Roseville Portfolio MSCI 2006-HQ8 LLC, ask the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Eastern District of California for an order (i)
excusing Anthony Dimond, the state court appointed receiver, from
the turnover requirements of Sections 543 (a) and (b)(1) with
respect to certain property owned by Fairway Commons II, LLC,
currently in the possession and control of the receiver; or (ii)
in the  alternative, appointing the receiver as the person
responsible for the estate under Rule 9001(5).

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on June 30, 2011,
Roseville asked the Court for relief from the automatic stay in
the bankruptcy case of Fairway Commons II so it may issue and
record by July 5, 2011, a trustee's deed upon sale to fully
perfect its ownership interests in certain property previously
owned by Fairway Commons II.

Kobra EFS, in Roseville, California, filed for Chapter 11
bankruptcy (Bankr. E.D. Calif. Case No. 11-35250) on June 20,
2011.  Affiliates that also sought Chapter 11 protection are
Fairway Commons II, LLC (Case No. 11-35255) and Eureka Ridge, LLC
(Case No. 11-35256).  Judge Christopher M. Klein presides over the
case.  Paul A. Warner, Esq., serves as the Debtors' bankruptcy
counsel.  Kobra EFS and Fairway Commons II separately estimated
$10 million to $50 million in both assets and debts.


FENTON SUB: Wells Fargo Wants Request to Access Cash Denied
-----------------------------------------------------------
Wells Fargo Bank N.A., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District Of Minnesota to deny approval of Fenton Sub Parcel D LLC
and Bowles Sub Parcel D LLC's request to use the cash collateral.

Wells Fargo serves as trustee for the registered holders of J.P.
Morgan Chase Commercial Mortgage Securities Corp., Commercial
Mortgage Pass-Through Certificates, Series 2004-LN2, by and
through CWCapital Asset Management LLC, as Special Servicer.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on July 18, 2011, the
Debtors sought permission to use cash collateral consisting of
rents in which Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., holds a security interest.
The Debtors will use the cash collateral to continue their
operations and to either reorganize or pursue an asset sale.
The Debtors request final authorization to use cash collateral
through Dec. 31, 2011.  They believe that Wells Fargo is
adequately protected by the equity cushion in the real property,
well as the Debtors' continued maintenance of the property.

The original financing was provided by Nomura Credit and Capital,
Inc., in the amount of $11,604,000.  The Debtors currently owe
$10,535,364 under the promissory note, which matures May 11, 2014.
The principal on the First Mortgage Debt has been paid down by
over $1 million to date.

According to Wells Fargo, the motion also does not provide the
lender with the indubitable equivalent because it does not protect
the Lender's present interest in the cash collateral or
Prepetition Collateral.  The Debtors provide no additional
collateral or cash infusions during the entire six month window of
use of cash collateral.

There is no competent evidence in the record of the value of the
properties to establish the Debtors' claim of an equity cushion.
Instead there is merely an assertion that the properties are worth
$13,135,656.

---------------------------------------------------------

NASDAQ Stock Market's delisting determination, which hearing
request will delay the delisting of the Company's securities

FLEXERA SOFTWARE: S&P Puts 'B+' Corp. Rating on Watch Negative
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its 'B+' corporate
credit rating on Schaumburg, Ill.-based Flexera Software Inc. on
CreditWatch with negative implications. "We expect to withdraw our
ratings on the existing credit facilities at the close of the
transaction following the refinancing," S&P related.

The CreditWatch listing follows the announcement that Teachers'
Private Capital, the private investment arm of the Ontario
Teachers' Pension Plan, will acquire a majority interest in
Flexera. Thoma Bravo, the current investor in Flexera, is expected
to retain a minority interest in the company post closing of the
transaction.

"Terms have yet to be disclosed but we anticipate that the
existing debt will be refinanced and we are likely to withdraw our
ratings on these issues as a result of the change of control," S&P
said.

"Although no terms have been announced, based on Flexera's
relatively modest revenue and EBITDA base, we believe that the
incremental debt from the transaction could potentially weaken the
company's credit profile, depending on the amount of incremental
debt," explained Standard & Poor's credit analyst Andrew Chang.
Adjusted debt to EBITDA was about 4.3x in March 2011.

"We will resolve the CreditWatch when more information regarding
the above transaction and financing becomes available and we have
the opportunity to review any potential changes in business or
financial strategies," S&P stated.

Gentiva Health Services, Inc. -- http://www.gentiva.com/--  is a

The company offers direct home nursing and therapies, including
specialty programs, as well as hospice care.  Gentiva reported
revenues of over $1 billion for the twelve months ended April 4,
2010.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on March 24, 2011,
Standard & Poor's Rating Services said that it reinstated ratings
on Gentiva Health Services Inc.'s senior secured credit facility.
The issue-level ratings are 'BB-' (one notch higher than the
corporate credit rating) with a recovery rating of '2'.  The '2'
recovery rating indicates expectations for substantial (70%-90%)
recovery of principal in the event of default.

On March 9, 2011, Gentiva refinanced its credit facility, reducing
the amount if its term loan A to $180 million from $200 million
and its term loan B to $546.6 million from $550 million.  The
amount of the revolving credit facility remained $125 million.
The company negotiated more favorable pricing and relaxed the
interest coverage covenant.  The maturity dates and amortization
schedule remained the same.

The 'B+' corporate credit rating on Gentiva remains unchanged.


GENWORTH MORTGAGE: S&P Cuts Counterparty Credit Rating to 'BB-'
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its counterparty credit
and financial strength ratings, as applicable, on Genworth
Mortgage Insurance Corp. and Genworth Residential Mortgage
Insurance Corp. of North Carolina (collectively referred to as
GMICO) to 'BB-' from 'BB+'. Standard & Poor's also said that it
affirmed its 'BBB' counterparty credit rating on the holding
company, Genworth Financial Inc. (GNW). The outlook remains
negative.

For three of the past four quarters, GNW has announced reserve
strengthening in its U.S. mortgage insurance operations segment.
"These actions significantly increased the company's incurred
losses, resulting in pretax losses that went beyond our
expectations for the segment," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Jeremy Rosenbaum. "The loss ratio was elevated at 263%,
457%, 197%, and an estimated 367% for the past four quarters. The
risk-to-capital ratio is now estimated to be above the 25 to 1
benchmark. Further, GMICO bolstered its capital with two
affiliated share exchanges (most recently, $375 million of
Genworth MI Canada Inc. [MIC]), which amount to nearly $600
million and lowers the quality of capital in our opinion."

However, there were certain positive elements in the second-
quarter 2011 prerelease. GMICO's loss mitigation efforts continue
to track towards its expectations for full-year 2011 and the
delinquency rate on its flow business continues to be one of the
lowest in the mortgage insurance industry. On a reserve-per-
delinquency basis, GMICO now has one of the highest reserve levels
in the industry, which indicates that perhaps the worst is behind
the company. GMICO's new notices continue to decline and are at
the lowest level since 2007, which has led to a 30% reduction in
its delinquency inventory since fourth-quarter 2009.

The outlook on GNW remains negative following GNW's second quarter
preearnings release. While management continues to utilize GNW's
internal financial flexibility (other than the cash on hand at the
holding company) to support GMICO, as exemplified by the execution
of another share exchange in the second quarter, GNW plans to
maintain a 2x interest expense cash buffer of $500 million for the
next two years.

"GNW's coverage metrics continue to remain below what we expect
for the rating level and haven't rebounded as sharply as we had
anticipated due to poor performance at GMICO," said Mr. Rosenbaum.
However, GNW has a limited amount of near-term maturities and the
company currently has a high cash balance. Standard & Poor's would
likely lower the rating on the holding company by one notch if its
cash buffer declines below $500 million or if GNW's statutory
dividend coverage declines below the current level of about 2x. In
addition, Standard & Poor's could lower the rating if further
deterioration in GMICO hinders GNW's external financial
flexibility. Further MIC contributions to GMICO could reduce the
dividends available to the holding company.

"The negative outlook on GMICO reflects uncertain macroeconomic
conditions and the potential for further adverse reserve
development," said Mr. Rosenbaum. Although new delinquencies have
declined in recent quarters, delinquencies likely would increase
again if the economy enters another downturn and the unemployment
rate increases.

Standard & Poor's could lower the ratings on GMICO if the company
experiences a setback resulting in higher delinquencies or losses
that impairs its capital and claims paying ability. Standard &
Poor's could also lower the ratings if GMICO's future results
reflect further significant reserve strengthening and calls the
company's reserve adequacy into question.


GIBRALTAR INDUSTRIES: Moody's Affirms 'B1' CFR; Outlook Stable
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed the B1 corporate family and
probability of default ratings for Gibraltar Industries, Inc. and
revised the outlook to stable from negative. In a related rating
action, the company's senior secured revolving credit facility was
upgraded to Ba2 from Ba3 and its senior subordinated notes were
upgraded to B2 from B3. The stabilization of the outlook reflects
the company's ability to reduce debt and generate strong positive
free cash flow, even through the economic downturn and despite
commodity price volatility. In addition, cost reduction measures
have resulted in slightly improved, albeit weak, operating
margins. Gibraltar's SGL-3 speculative grade liquidity rating was
affirmed.

RATINGS RATIONALE

Moody's views Gibraltar's ability to reduce balance sheet debt by
more than 50% over the past 3 years while continuing to generate
strong free cash flow as the primary catalysts behind the
stabilization of the outlook. At March 31, 2011, the company's
adjusted free cash flow to debt stood at 10.5%, which is high
considering the B1 corporate family rating. Through cost cutting
initiatives that included closing and/or consolidating
approximately 30 facilities, as well as price increases, Gibraltar
has been able to partially offset the increase in raw materials
costs, particularly steel. Although adjusted EBIT margin remains
low at 2.6% for the twelve months ended March 31, 2011, this does
not reflect the full impact of the cost reduction measures. For
the first quarter of 2011, adjusted EBIT margin was 5.0%, which is
an improvement over the low of 1.9% for the full year in 2010.

Moody's acknowledges that Gibraltar's heavy exposure to the
residential and non-residential construction sectors will continue
to pressure operating performance over the intermediate term.
However, the company's efforts to streamline its operations and
divest non-core, lower margin businesses will help prevent further
deterioration in credit metrics during the next 12 to 18 months.

These rating actions were taken:

- B1 corporate family rating affirmed;

- B1 probability of default affirmed

$200 million senior secured revolver due February 2012 upgraded to
Ba2 (LGD2, 20% ) from Ba3 (LGD3, 34%);

- $204 million senior subordinated notes due December 2015
  upgraded to B2 (LGD5, 74%) from B3 (LGD5, 85%);

Headquartered in Buffalo, NY, Gibraltar Industries is a
manufacturer and distributor of metals and other engineered

was the Global Manufacturing Industry Methodology published in
December 2010. Other methodologies used include Loss Given Default
for Speculative-Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada
and EMEA published in June 2009 (and/or) the Government-Related

GLOBAL DIVERSIFIED: Deregisters Unsold Securities
-------------------------------------------------
Global Diversified Industries, Inc., filed with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission Post-Effective Amendments to
Form S-8 registration statements to deregister shares of its
common stock that were registered with the SEC but were not sold
under the registration statements.

                     About Global Diversified

Chowchilla, Calif.-based Global Diversified Industries, Inc., is a
holding company for two wholly owned subsidiaries, Lutrex
Enterprises, Inc., an entity which holds equipment and inventory
for the Company, and Global Modular, Inc., an entity which
provides sales, marketing, manufacturing and construction site

in total assets, $10.60 million in total liabilities $9.14 million
in net preferred stock series D, $1.75 million in net preferred
stock series C, $3.04 million in net preferred stock series B, and
a $9.23 million total stockholders' deficit.

                           Going Concern

The Company has reoccurring losses and has generated negative cash
flows from operations which raises substantial doubts about the
Company's ability to continue as a going concern.  The
continuation of the Company as a going concern is dependent upon
the continued financial support from its shareholders and
creditors and the ability of the Company to obtain necessary
equity financing to continue operations, and the attainment of
profitable operations.  The Company plans to implement the
following policies to help alleviate the going concern issue
during the year ended April 30, 2011:

   * Raise additional money through the sale of equity securities
     and convertible instruments through our funding sources which
     provided the Company with over $6,000,000 of funding during
     the year ended April 30, 2010.

   * Some of the Company's preferred shareholders have redeemed
     their preferred stock and warrants prior to Jan. 31, 2011.

   * Focus on revenue generation, during the current year the
     Company spent a great deal of time acquiring discounted
     inventory and planning for possible acquisitions, during the
     year ended April 30, 2011 the Company plans to focus on
     revenue generation.

   * The Company believes its backlog at Jan. 31, 2011 will be
     recognizable and will provide a substantial improvement to
     earnings during the year ended April 30, 2011 and should
     decrease our dependence on the sale of equity and other
     instruments

The Company said there can be no assurance that it will be
successful at implementing the above plans, failure to implement
these plans could have a material impact on itself.

Golden Elephant Glass Technology, Inc., reported net income of
$37,496 for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2010, compared with a

For the three months ended Sept. 30, 2010, and the three months
ended Sept. 30, 2009, the Company did not generate any sales
revenue, because it has suspended its operations since
November 2008 as a result of the global economic recession and
since then has commenced only equipment maintenance and system
upgrades.

The decrease in net loss was a result of the recovery of bad debt
for an amount of approximately $3.13 million.

Net loss was $2.51 million on $0 revenue for the nine months ended
Sept. 30, 2010, compared with a net loss of $6.79 million on
$2.27 million of sales revenues for the comparable period of 2009.

GSC GROUP: Judge Won't Speed Up Challenge to $235 Million Sale
--------------------------------------------------------------
Eric Hornbeck at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that a New York federal
judge on Friday refused to fast-track minority lenders' opposition
to the $235 million sale of bankrupt investment management firm
GSC Group Inc.'s assets to Black Diamond Capital Management LLC.

Law360 relates that U.S. District Judge Laura Taylor Swain ruled
that even though minority lenders had blasted Black Diamond for
allegedly structuring the deal to greatly benefit itself at their
expense, the lenders' allegations are already pending in a
separate state court suit so there won't be irreparable harm
without an expedited appeal of the sale order.

GUIDED THERAPEUTICS: Inks Preliminary Research Pact with Konica
---------------------------------------------------------------
Guided Therapeutics, Inc., has entered into a preliminary
agreement with Konica Minolta Opto, Inc., of Tokyo, to conduct
clinical and market research for the LuVivaTM Advanced Cervical
Scan product in certain Asian markets.  As part of the agreement,
the two companies also plan to conduct a clinical trial to
establish screening claims for LuViva, as a method to replace the
Pap test for early cervical disease detection in international
markets.

"We are very pleased to expand our relationship with Konica
Minolta beyond our work on esophageal cancer detection and
monitoring technology," said Mark L. Faupel, Ph.D., President and
CEO of Guided Therapeutics, Inc.  "In addition to gaining an
excellent potential marketing partner in Asia, of equal importance
is the initiation of a clinical trial to establish screening
claims for cervical disease for our non-invasive, point-of-care
test.  The prospect of opening up the cervical screening market
for our product would expand the market opportunity for LuViva
exponentially."

"We are pleased to extend our relationship with Guided
Therapeutics to cervical disease for the Asian market," said Akira
Suzuki, General Manager, LC Business Department for Konica Minolta
Opto.  "We believe that LuViva will bring better healthcare
benefits to women in both highly sophisticated markets, such as
Singapore, and developing countries in Asia as well."

Under the initial one year agreement, Guided Therapeutics will
sell LuViva demonstration and clinical trial devices and single-
use disposable Cervical Guides to Konica Minolta.  The screening
clinical trial, sponsored by Konica Minolta, is planned to be
conducted in key Asian markets.  Konica Minolta is also
responsible for receiving clearances or approvals for LuViva in
certain Asian countries, not including South Korea.  Once each
clearance is granted, Konica Minolta will have right of first
negotiation for distribution of LuViva in that territory.

"In multiple clinical studies involving more than 3,000 women, the
LuViva has consistently demonstrated superior performance to the
standard of care, including the Pap test, human papillomavirus
(HPV) testing and biopsy," Dr. Faupel added.

LA PALOMA: S&P Assigns Prelim. 'B' Rating on Term Loan Facility
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its preliminary 'B'
rating to La Paloma Generating Co.'s $299.2 million secured first-
lien term loan facility due 2017. The facility includes a $30
million cash-collateralized letter of credit. "In addition, we
assigned a preliminary '1' recovery rating to the facility,
indicating a high expectation of recovery (90% to 100%) if a
default occurs. The outlook is stable," S&P said.

La Paloma is also issuing a $65 million first-lien working capital
facility due 2016 ($15 million revolver and a $50 million
participating letter of credit that La Paloma will exclusively use
to support its commodity hedging program) and $130 million secured
second-lien term facility due 2018 ($110 million term loan and $20
million participating letter of credit for the commodity hedging
program), both of which Standard & Poor's does not rate.

The secured first-lien term loan has a preliminary '1' recovery
rating, indicating a high expectation of recovery (90% to 100%) if
a default occurs. "In our simulated default scenario, La Paloma is
unable to refinance its outstanding debt at maturity in 2017 on
reasonable terms," S&P said.

All ratings are preliminary, subject to review of final
documentation and conditional on the proposed financing being
completed and execution of hedge agreements to mitigate market
price volatility and carbon costs.

When La Paloma successfully completes the transaction, S&P would
withdraw the preliminary rating and assign final issue and
recovery ratings.

La Paloma will use proceeds from the term loan facilities to repay
the existing $265 million ($236 million outstanding as of June 30,
2011) secured first-lien term loan B (CCC+/Positive) due 2012 and
La Paloma's second-lien $155 million ($155 million outstanding)
term loan C (CC/Positive) due 2013, as well as to prefund the debt
service reserve, a $30.2 million synthetic letter of credit, and
the $20 million major maintenance account for 2011-2013.

"La Paloma's preliminary ratings reflect the adverse impacts on
its near-term financial performance of depressed natural gas
prices and the inability, under existing tolling agreements, to
recover carbon costs that it will incur under requirements of
California's cap and trade law in 2013," said Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Marc Sonnenblick.

The outlook on the new debt is stable. "We expect La Paloma's
hedging program to provide some stability to the cash flow needed
to meet its debt service obligations, and the cash sweep should
help pay down debt by more than one-half at maturity under our
base case assumptions, improving the long-term financial profile.
Over the near term, La Paloma will be adversely affected by the
currently low gas prices and the inability, under the existing MS
toll, to recover carbon costs that the project will incur under
requirements of California carbon compliance in 2013. We could
lower the ratings in the unexpected event California implements
carbon compliance in 2012 and La Paloma has heat rate degradation,
decreased availability, or an increase in O&M above expectations.
We could also downgrade if the hedge program fails to stabilize
cash flow to the extent projected. An upgrade is unlikely over the
next one to two years," S&P related.


LAKE PLEASANT: All Creditors to Be Paid in Full Under Plan
----------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Arizona has
scheduled a hearing for Sept. 14, 2011, at 10:00 a.m. to consider
the adequacy of the disclosure statement describing the joint plan
of reorganization of Lake Pleasant Group, LLP, and and DLGC II,
LLC, dated July 12, 2011.

The Debtors' schedules list Johnson Bank as a creditor with a
total claim in the approximate amount of $19,363,940 secured by a
first position lien on the Properties.  Lake Pleasant's schedules
list unsecured creditors in the amount of $151,000, and DLGC's
schedules list unsecured creditors in the amount of $189,947.

The Debtors are currently in the process of seeking a rezoning of
the Properties to Mixed Used-Recreational Vehicle Resort and
Commercial to allow a luxury oriented recreational-vehicle resort
with approximately 1,512 spaces to exist on the Properties.  The
DLGC Property will also include a 22-acre commercial site which
will allow the opportunity for supporting retail and two R.V.
storage parcels, as ancillary uses to help support the RV resort
and the surrounding areas.

The Debtors and Pensus Cholla Hills RV Resort LLC have entered
into the Sales Agreement which provides for the sale of the
Properties to Pensus, for not less than $23,000,000.  The Sale of
the Properties will be conditioned upon the Properties being
rezoned as set forth above.  The Sale will result in all creditors
being paid in full on their Allowed Claims.

The Plan designates four (4) Classes of Claims and Interests.

Class 1 Priority Claims will be paid in full, in Cash, on or
before the Effective Date.

Johnson Bank's Class 2-A Secured Claim will be paid the full
amount of its Allowed Secured Claim on the Effective Date from the
Net Proceeds generated by the Sale.

Class 3 Allowed Unsecured Claims will also be paid in full from
the Net Proceeds derived from the Sale.

Class 4 Interests in the Debtors will retain their Interests in
the Reorganized Debtors.

LANDMARK BANK: Closed; American Momentum Bank Assumes All Deposits
------------------------------------------------------------------
American Momentum Bank of Tampa, Fla., acquired the banking
operations, including all the deposits, of Southshore Community
Bank of Apollo Beach, Fla., and LandMark Bank of Florida of
Sarasota, Fla.  The two banks were closed on Friday, July 22,
2011, by the Florida Office of Financial Regulation, which
appointed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation as receiver.
To protect the depositors, the FDIC entered into a purchase and
assumption agreement with American Momentum Bank.

Southshore Community Bank had two branches, and LandMark Bank of
Florida had six branches.  All eight branches of the two closed
banks will reopen during normal business hours as branches of
American Momentum Bank.  Depositors of the two failed banks will
automatically become depositors of American Momentum Bank.
Deposits will continue to be insured by the FDIC, so there is no
need for customers to change their banking relationship in order
to retain their deposit insurance coverage up to applicable
limits.  Customers of the two failed banks should continue to use
their existing branches until they receive notice from American
Momentum Bank that it has completed systems changes to allow other
branches of American Momentum Bank to process their accounts as
well.

As of March 31, 2011, Southshore Community Bank had around $46.3
million in total assets and $45.3 million in total deposits; and
LandMark Bank of Florida had total assets of $275.0 million and
total deposits of $246.7 million.  In addition to assuming all of
the deposits of the two Florida banks, American Momentum Bank
agreed to purchase essentially all of their assets.

Customers with questions about the transaction should call the
FDIC toll-free: for Southshore Community Bank customers, 1-800-
894-2013, and for LandMark Bank of Florida customers, 1-800-889-
4976.  Interested parties also can visit the FDIC's Web sites: for
Southshore Community Bank,

http://www.fdic.gov/bank/individual/failed/southshore.html

and for LandMark Bank of Florida,

http://www.fdic.gov/bank/individual/failed/LandMark.html

The FDIC estimates that the cost to the Deposit Insurance Fund for
Southshore Community Bank will be $8.3 million and for LandMark
Bank of Florida, $34.4 million.  Compared to other alternatives,
American Momentum Bank's acquisition of the two institutions was
the least costly resolution for the FDIC's DIF.

The closings are the 56th and 57th FDIC-insured institutions to
fail in the nation so far this year and the eighth and ninth in
Florida.  The last FDIC-insured institution closed in the state
was First Peoples Bank, Port Saint Lucie, on July 15, 2011.


LINDEN PONDS: Receives Approval to Tap $6 Million DIP Loan
----------------------------------------------------------
American Bankruptcy Institute reports that Linden Ponds Inc. and
its affiliate Hingham Campus LLC can use a $6 million debtor-in-
possession loan on a final basis.

The Debtors have reached an agreement where holders of 40% of the
bonds have pledged to support and vote in favor of a Joint Plan of
Reorganization of the Debtors.  The Debtors add that the three
impaired classes under the Plan have indicated that they will
accept the Plan.  Redwood Capital Investors LLC, will retain its
ownership interest of the Debtors through the Plan.

The Debtors are asking the bankruptcy court to hold a joint
hearing on Sept. 15 and Sept. 16 for approval of the disclosure
statement and confirmation of the reorganization plan.

Redwood is providing $6 million in a postpetition revolving credit
facility for Hingham Campus' Chapter 11 case.  The DIP financing
will mature on Nov. 8, 2011.  The DIP financing requires a joint
hearing on the Disclosure Statement and the Plan within 120 days
of the Petition Date.

                      About Linden Ponds

Linden Ponds Inc. operates a 108-acre continuing care retirement
community located at 300 Linden Ponds Way in Hingham,
Massachusetts.  The facility has 988 independent living units
(with an occupancy rate of 87.9%) and 132 skilled nursing beds
(68% occupancy rate).

Linden Ponds leases the facility and the property upon which it is
built from Hingham Campus LLC.  Hingham is the owner of the
facility and owns the fee simple interest in the property upon
which the facility is built.  Senior Living Retirement
Communities, LLC, formerly known as Erickson Retirement
Communities, LLC, owns 100% of the membership interests in
Hingham.

Hingham Campus and Linden Ponds filed a pre-negotiated Chapter 11
petition (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Lead Case No. 11-33912) in Dallas on
June 15, 2011.  Hingham Campus estimated assets and debts of $100
million to $500 million.  Debt includes $156.4 million owing on
bonds issued by the Massachusetts Development Finance Agency, with
Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as the bond trustee.

Erickson Retirement Communities sought bankruptcy protection
(Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 09-37010) on Oct. 19, 2009.  Erickson,
the owner of 20 senior living facilities, won approval of its
reorganization plan in April 2010.  The Erickson plan provided for
a sale to Redwood Capital, the highest bidder at the auction in
December 2009.  Redwood won the auction with an all-cash bid of
$365 million.

Attorneys at DLA Piper LLP (US) represent Hingham in the Chapter
11 case.  Attorneys at McGuire, Craddock & Strother, P.C., and
Whiteford, Taylor And Preston, L.L.P., represent Linden Ponds.


LOS ANGELES DODGERS: Judge Ejects $150 Million DIP Financing Plan
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Eric Morath, writing for Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review,
reports that Judge Kevin Gross on Friday ruled that the Los
Angeles Dodgers could not use a $150 million loan from its
preferred lender, Highbridge Principal Strategies, because a
better loan was available -- specifically, the financing the Major
League Baseball offered.

The Dodgers "not only failed to attempt to obtain unsecured
financing, they refused to engage Baseball in negotiations," Judge
Gross wrote in his order, according to the report.  "Baseball is
ready, anxious and able to provide unsecured financing and has
committed to do whatever it takes to do just that."

DBR relates Judge Gross directed the league and the Dodgers to
enter into meaningful negotiations about a credit agreement.
Judge Gross also said MLB's loan must be free of control
provisions and assured the Dodgers that he will offer protections
in "the hopefully unlikely event that baseball strays from its
obligations to act in good faith."

MLB has already offered a loan that comes on an unsecured basis,
at a reduced interest rate and without nearly $10 million in fees
the team committed to pay Highbridge, a hedge-fund manager owned
by J.P. Morgan Chase & Co.

According to DBR, Dodgers attorney Bruce Bennett, Esq., at Dewey &
LeBoeuf LLP, said Friday the team will pursue financing from MLB.
The Dodgers need the loan to pay current players at the end of the
month.  However, Mr. Bennett said the Dodgers intend to push
forward with plans to auction off future broadcast rights as a
means to stabilize the team's finances.  MLB is likely to fight
that move as well.

DBR relates MLB spokesman Mike Teevan would only say that the
league is "pleased that the court has agreed with our position"
with respect to the loan.

DBR also reports that News Corp.'s Fox Sports, the Dodgers'
current broadcaster, will likely protest the auction plan.  Under
the media company's existing contract the Dodgers are barred from
soliciting bids from competitors.

                  About the Los Angeles Dodgers

Los Angeles Dodgers LLC operates the Los Angeles Dodgers, a
professional Major League Baseball club in the Los Angeles
metropolitan area.  Frank McCourt, a Boston real-estate developer
who unsuccessfully bid for the Boston Red Sox, bought the Dodgers
from Rupert Murdoch's Fox Entertainment Group, Inc. in 2004 for
$330 million.  Mr. McCourt also bought the Dodgers Stadium from
Fox for $100 million.

Los Angeles Dodgers LLC filed for bankruptcy protection (Bankr. D.
Del. Lead Case No. 11-12010) on June 27, 2011, after MLB
Commissioner Bud Selig rejected a television deal with News
Corp.'s Fox Sports, leaving Mr. McCourt unable to make payroll for
June 30 and July 1.  Fox Sports has exclusive cable television
rights for Dodgers games until the end of 2013 baseball season.

Chapter 11 filings were also made for LA Real Estate LLC, an
affiliated entity which owns Dodger Stadium, and three other
related holding companies.

The petition estimates assets of up to $500 million and debts of
up to $1 billion.  According to Forbes, the team is worth about
$800 million, making it the third most valuable baseball team
after the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox.

Judge Kevin Gross presides over the case.  Lawyers at Young,
Conaway, Stargatt & Taylor and Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP serve as the
Debtors' bankruptcy counsel.  Epiq Bankruptcy Solutions LLC is the
claims and notice agent.  Thomas Lauria, Esq., at White & Case,
represents MLB.

The LA Dodgers is the 12th sports team in North America to have
sought bankruptcy protection, according to The Wall Street
Journal.


MALIBU ASSOCIATES: Can Use Bank's Cash Collateral Until Sept. 30
----------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California
has approved the Fourth Stipulation between Malibu Associates,
LLC, and the U.S. Bank National Association, permitting use of
cash collateral from July 1, 2011, through Sept. 30, 2011,
pursuant to a budget.

As reported in the TCR on Feb. 25, 2011, the Court entered its
order approving the Third Stipulation between the Debtor and the
Bank permitting use of cash collateral through June 30, 2011.

Pursuant to the Fourth Stipulation, the Debtor is authorized to
use cash collateral provided that: (i) the aggregate expenditures
for all categories set forth in the budget, other than the $10,000
per month management fee, do not exceed the budgeted aggregate
expenses by more that 15%; and (ii) the expenditures with respect
to any particular category of expenses, other than $10,000 per
month management fee, do not exceed by more than 20%; and provided
further, that the Debtor will provide or obtain any notice or
order of the Court before any expense is paid that requires prior
notice or order of the Court, including payments regarding insider
compensation.

As adequate protection for the Debtor's cash collateral use, the
bank will have a replacement lien on all postpetition property of
the same type and character as the property to the bank's
prepetition lien extended, to secure the prepetition claim of the
Bank against the Debtor.

As additional adequate protection, the Debtor will provide the
Bank with reports and information related to the Debtor's use of
the cash collateral as the Bank may reasonably request.

                    About Malibu Associates, LLC

Malibu, California-based Malibu Associates, LLC, dba Malibu
Country Club and Malibu Country Club filed for Chapter 11
bankruptcy (Bankr. C.D. Calif. Case No. No. 09-24625) on Nov. 3,
2009.  Ashleigh A. Danker, Esq., and Marc S. Cohen, Esq., at Kaye
Scholer LLP, in Los Angeles, represent the Debtor in its
restructuring effort.  The Company disclosed assets of
$42,853,592, and debts of $35,758,538 as of the Petition Date.

The Court extended the Debtor's exclusive periods to file and
solicit acceptances for the proposed chapter 11 plan until Feb. 4,
2011, and April 4.  To date, the Debtor hasn't filed a motion for
an extension of its exclusivity periods.


MAQ MANAGEMENT: Wants Order Dismissing Chapter 11 Cases Vacated
---------------------------------------------------------------
MAQ Management, Inc., et al., ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Southern District of Florida to vacate the orders dismissing
their Chapter 11 cases.

The Debtors relate that the deadline to file schedules and
statements of financial affairs was originally set for June 29,
they filed an ex-parte motion to extend the time to file their
schedules and SOFAs for a period of 10 days.  The Court entered
the order which inadvertently referenced Saturday, July 9, (as
opposed to Monday July 11) as the deadline.

The Debtors note that according to Rule 9006 (Federal Rules
adopted in Bankruptcy proceedings):

   Rule 6. Computing and Extending Time; (a) Computing Time.  The
   following rules apply in computing any time period specified in
   these rules, in any local rule or court order, or in any
   statute that does not specify a method of computing time.  (1)
   Period Stated in Days or a Longer Unit. When the period is
   stated in days or a longer unit of time: (A) exclude the day of
   the event that triggers the period; (B) count every day,
   including intermediate Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays;
   and (C) include the last day of the period, but if the last day
   is a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, the period continues
   to run until the end of the next day that is not a Saturday,
   Sunday, or legal holiday.

As a result of the operation of Rule 9006, the deadline was
midnight July 11, for the filing of the schedules and SOFAs in
these chapter 11 cases.

The Debtors assert that the orders dismissing improperly listed
the deadlines for the filing of schedules and SOFAs as "6/29/2011"
which was incorrect.

The Debtors had filed their schedule and SOFAS on July 11.

The Debtors also request that the Section 341 meeting date of
Aug. 1, 2011, be maintained.

MAQ MANAGEMENT: BB&T and 1st Nat'l. Objects to Cash Collateral Use
------------------------------------------------------------------
Branch Banking & Trust Company objects to the motion of MAQ
Management, Inc., for authority to use cash collateral for these
reasons:

     1) the proposed budget does not separately identify BB&T's
        collateral or provide a separate budget of expenses and
        income for BB&T's collateral;

     2) the Budget includes certain inappropriate amounts as
        income and expenses; and

     3) the Motion does not identify sufficient adequate
        protection for the use of BB&T's cash collateral.

In the event that the Court is inclined to grant the use of
BB&T's Cash collateral, BB&T requests that the Court require the
Debtors to:

     1) make adequate protection payments to BB&T;

     2) grant BB&T a perfected post-petition replacement lien;

     3) maintain insurance coverage for all property upon which
        BB&T has a lien and name BB&T as the loss payee and
        additional insured;

     4) comply with all provisions of the Loan Document with BB&T
        other than those that require payments to BB&T;

     5) provide to BB&T copies of all current written agreements
        and any amendment thereto between any of the Debtors and
        any third party affecting any of BB&T's collateral;

     6) provide BB&T with reports showing accounts receivables,
        a reasonably detailed cash flow statement, copies of the
        Debtors' general ledgers, copies of the Debtor's check
        registers and bank statements, copies of documents
        evidencing any deposits into bank accounts, and the
        reports the Debtors are required to file with the U.S.
        Trustees Office; and

     7) allow BB&T to visit, inspect, and have reasonable access
        to the Debtors' collateral.

BB&T also requests that the Court condition the use of BB&T's cash
collateral upon the granting of a super-priority administrative
expense claim for any diminution in cash collateral resulting from
the Debtors' use and requests that any such order be without
prejudice to BB&T's rights or remedies, including motions to
terminate automatic stay, to dismiss, for the appointment of a
trustee or to seek dismissal or conversion of these cases.

BB&T is represented by:

1st National Bank of South Florida, a secured creditor of MAQ
Management Inc., also filed an objection to the continued use of
cash collateral.  1st National asks the Court to prohibit the
Debtor from the use of cash collateral, require the Debtor to
segregate all cash collateral, and require the Debtor to provide
1st National with an accounting of all post-petition receipts and
disbursements of Cash Collateral.

The Debtor has neither requested 1st National's consent to use its
cash collateral, moved this Court for authorization nor offered to
provide 1st National with adequate protection.  Furthermore, the
Debtor is believed to be commingling the cash collateral of
multiple secured creditors who hold liens on different properties.
Not only has the Debtor failed to segregate the cash collateral,
it has failed to provide any accounting to 1st National as to the
cash collateral currently being held.

MERIT GROUP: Files Chapter 11 Plan of Liquidation
-------------------------------------------------
The Merit Group, Inc., and its debtor affiliates filed with the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of South Carolina a Chapter
11 plan of liquidation and accompanying disclosure statement on
July 16, 2011.

Through the Plan, the Debtors seek to liquidate their remaining
assets and complete the wind-up of their business.  The Plan
provides for the appointment of a liquidating supervisor, who will
manage the liquidation of the Debtors' assets and wind-up of the
business.

The Debtors believe that confirmation of the Plan and liquidation
of the remaining assets under the Plan will be more economical and
efficient than effecting a liquidation under Chapter 7 of the
Bankruptcy Code, including because the Liquidating Supervisor is
knowledgeable about the Debtors' assets and liabilities and
focused solely on the Chapter 11 Case and maximizing the Assets
for the benefit of the Estates, and no Chapter 7 trustee
commission or other Chapter 7 costs will be paid under the Plan.

The Plan provides payment in full in cash for administrative
claims.  Priority tax claims will be paid in full in cash without
the postpetition interest.

The Plan also provides for this treatment and classification of
other claims:

Class   Description                Treatment

                                   provided that the Liquidating
                                   Supervisor will not make any
                                   distribution of an Allowed

MGM RESORTS: Amends to Borgata Settlement Agreement
---------------------------------------------------
MGM Resorts International entered into an amendment, subject to
approval by the New Jersey Casino Control Commission, with respect
to its settlement agreement with the New Jersey Division of Gaming
Enforcement under which it will sell its 50% ownership interest in
the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City.

The amendment provides that the mandated sale of the trust
property be increased by 18 months to 48 months.  During the first
36 months (or until March 24, 2013), MGM Resorts has the right to
direct the trustee to sell the trust property.  If a sale is not
concluded by that time, the trustee will be responsible for
selling MGM's interest in the Borgata during the following 12-
month period.  All other material terms of the settlement
agreement remain unchanged.

The Casino Control Commission is expected to hold a hearing on the
amendment to the settlement on Aug. 8, 2011.

MGM remains the sole economic beneficiary of the trust.  MGM
Resorts International owns its interest in the Borgata through a
50-50 joint venture with Boyd Gaming Corporation whose interest is
not affected by the settlement.

                         About MGM Resorts

MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM) --
http://www.mgmresorts.com/-- has significant holdings in gaming,
hospitality and entertainment, owns and operates 15 properties
located in Nevada, Mississippi and Michigan, and has 50%
investments in four other properties in Nevada, Illinois and
Macau.

The Company's balance sheet at March 31, 2011, showed
$18.76 billion in total assets, $15.84 billion in total
liabilities, and $2.92 billion in total stockholders' equity.

The Company reported a net loss of $1.44 billion on $6.01 billion
of revenue for the year ended Dec. 31, 2010, compared with a net
loss of $1.29 billion on $5.97 billion of revenue during the prior
year.

                          *     *     *

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Oct. 18, 2010,
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its rating outlook on
MGM Resorts to stable from developing.  At the same time, S&P
affirmed all of its existing ratings on MGM, including the 'CCC+'
corporate credit rating.

The 'CCC+' corporate credit rating reflects MGM's significant debt
burden, S&P's expectation for meaningful declines in cash flow
generation in 2010, and the company's weak liquidity position.
While MGM maintains a leading presence on the Las Vegas Strip,
2010 will be another challenging year for the Strip, and prospects
for a meaningful rebound in 2011 are uncertain.  The recent
pricing of the primary offering of common stock has bolstered
liquidity; however, the company's ability to weather the current
downturn and continue to service its debt obligations over the
longer term relies on continued progress toward addressing its
challenging debt maturity schedule, as well as a substantial
rebound in cash flow generation.

The TCR also reported that Fitch Ratings revised the Rating
Outlook for MGM Resorts to Positive following the company's equity
issuance.  In addition, Fitch affirmed the Issuer
Default Rating at 'CCC'.  MGM's 'CCC' IDR continues to reflect a
credit profile with substantial credit risk.  MGM's probability of
default still displays a high sensitivity to an uninterrupted
recovery in the Las Vegas market, significant reliance on a
favorable refinancing and capital markets environment due to its
heavy debt maturity schedule, a highly leveraged balance sheet
despite potential debt reduction from the equity issuance, and a
weak near-term free cash profile.  In addition, MGM's obligation
under the CityCenter completion guarantee continues to escalate,
and Fitch believes the company is currently under-investing in its
properties, which will likely impact asset quality.

As reported by the TCR on March 4, 2011, Moody's upgraded MGM
Resorts International's Corporate Family rating to B3 and its
Probability of Default rating to Caa1.  The upgrade reflects signs
of modest improvement in demand trends in Las Vegas, debt
repayment during 2010 from the proceeds of equity issuances, and
completion of a new multi-year financing package for CityCenter
(MGM's 50% owned project on the Las Vegas Strip.)


NALCO CO: S&P Puts 'BB-' Corp. Credit Rating on Watch Positive
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its ratings on Ecolab
Inc., including its 'A' corporate credit rating, on CreditWatch
with negative implications, following the company's announcement
that it has entered into a definitive merger agreement to acquire
Nalco Holding Co., the parent company of Nalco Co., for
approximately $8.1 billion including assumed net debt.

The CreditWatch placement reflects the increased likelihood that
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services will lower its ratings on
Ecolab and its debt issues following its acquisition of Nalco
because of the resulting increase in debt leverage. "Based on
preliminary information, we expect that our corporate credit
rating on Ecolab will remain investment-grade but that we could
lower it by up to two notches," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Paul Kurias.

At the same time, Standard & Poor's placed its 'BB-' corporate
credit rating, and all issue-level ratings, on Nalco Co. on
CreditWatch with positive implications.

Ecolab announced that consideration to shareholders of Nalco
Holding Co. will be about $5.4 billion, consisting of
approximately 70% shares in Ecolab and 30% in cash. In addition,
Ecolab expects to assume approximately $2.7 billion in net debt at
Nalco. Standard & Poor's expects that Ecolab will raise permanent
financing for the acquisition prior to closing. Ecolab management
expects the transaction, which is subject to customary closing
conditions and regulatory approvals, to close by the end of 2011.

"We believe the acquisition of Nalco would improve and add
diversity to Ecolab's strong business risk profile while providing
management with a wider range of services to market to its
customers," Mr. Kurias said. The two companies serve some of the
same end markets and had combined annual sales of about $10
billion for 2010. The relative predictability and consistency of
operating results across both companies are key credit strengths,
according to Standard & Poor's.

St. Paul, Minn.-based Ecolab develops and markets cleaning,
sanitizing, food safety, and infection prevention products and
services for a broad range of customers. It had trailing-12-month
sales of about $6.2 billion as of March 31, 2011. Customers
include food services, food and beverage processors, health care
facilities, and hospitality markets.

Naperville, Ill.-based Nalco Co., a subsidiary of Nalco Holding
Co., had sales of about $4.3 billion for 2010.

The combined business would be a leading global provider of
cleaning, sanitizing, and water solutions in industries where
these services are important, including health care and food and
beverage. The combined operations should be positioned to
capitalize on attractive long-term trends including increased
emphasis on food safety and security, health and hygiene,
and sustainability.


NANA DEVELOPMENT: S&P Assigns Prelim. 'BB' Issue-Level Rating
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its preliminary 'BB'
issue-level rating (two notches higher than the company's
corporate credit rating) to Alaska-based NANA Development Corp.'s
(NANA) recently revised proposed new $175 million first-lien
senior secured term loan due 2016. "The preliminary recovery
rating is '1' indicating our expectation of very high recovery
(90%-100%) in the event of a default scenario. We are also
assigning a preliminary 'B+' issue-level rating to the company's
proposed $260 million second-lien senior secured term loan due
2017. The preliminary recovery rating is '4', indicating our
expectation of average recovery (30%-50%) in the event of a
default scenario. The company plans use the proceeds to refinance
its existing credit facility and to acquire Grand Isle Shipyard
Inc., an offshore oil and gas servicing maintenance provider," S&P
stated.

Based on the revised proposed capital structure, the preliminary
corporate credit rating on NANA remains 'B+' and reflects its
aggressive financial risk profile and its weak business risk
profile, marked by its reliance on government funding budgets,
integration risks with the proposed acquisition of Grand Isle
Shipyard Inc. (GIS), and the potential for declining zinc prices.
These factors are partially offset by some diversity of its
business lines, its well-established relationships with long-term
customers, and its committed royalty income from Red Dog Mine.
Currently, the operating margin (before depreciation and
amortization) in its services business is thin, at less than
10%. Pro forma for the revised capital structure, we expect the
company's financial leverage will be around 4.0x total adjusted
debt to EBITDA, and its funds from operations (FFO) to total
adjusted debt at roughly 15%. These measures would be in line with
S&P's expectations for the rating.

NAVISTAR INT'L: Inks-1 Year Renewal Pact for $500-Mil. Facility
---------------------------------------------------------------
Navistar Financial Corporation has signed an agreement for a one-
year renewal of a $500 million dealer floor plan funding facility,
effective immediately.  This facility is funded through two of
NFC's major relationship banks.

"This renewal, combined with additional funding sources, ensures
that we have appropriate liquidity to help International(R) and IC
BusTM dealers purchase their floor plan inventory," said David
Johanneson, president and chief executive officer of NFC.
"Throughout the difficult economic climate of the past few years,
the credit quality of our portfolio and the health of our dealer
network have remained strong, and we continue to have access to
funding to support the profitable growth of Navistar."

NFC continues to facilitate the majority of customer finance needs
in the United States through Navistar Capital, its retail program
formed last year in alliance with GE Capital.

This amendment serves to renew the Note Purchase Agreement through
July 18, 2012, removes Kitty Hawk Funding Corporation as a party
to the Agreement, and makes other administrative changes to the
Notes Purchase Agreement.  A full-text copy of the Third Amendment
is available for free at http://is.gd/Suaq1Z

improve if the North American truck market remains on track for a
sustained recovery into 2011, and Navistar's operational
initiatives to moderate its vulnerability to the truck cycle show
evidence of taking hold.


NEBRASKA BOOK: Wins Court Approval For $200-Mil. DIP Financing
--------------------------------------------------------------
Pete Brush at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that Nebraska Book Co. won
clearance Thursday in Delaware bankruptcy court to borrow $200
million, with JPMorgan Chase Bank NA acting as loan agent, in
order to continue business operations ahead of the late-summer
book-buying season.

Law360 relates that Delaware Bankruptcy Judge Peter J. Walsh
approved the debtor-in-possession financing, in the form of a
$125 million in term loans and a $75 million revolving credit
facility, on the same day the debtor won clearance to pay vendors,
employees and others continue to operate.

The DIP Facility consists of a $75 million revolving loan with a
base rate of +2.50% per annum and a $125 million term loan with a
base rate of +6.0% per annum.

All of the DIP obligations will constitute allowed senior
administrative expense claims.

Carve-Out means (a) any fees payable to the Clerk of Court and to
the Office of the U.S. Trustee; (b) up to $5,000,000 of allowed
fees, expenses and disbursements of professionals retained by the
Debtors or any official committee; and (c) any expenses incurred
by any Chapter 7 trustee provided those expenses do not exceed
$100,000 in the aggregate.

As security for the DIP Obligations, the DIP Lenders are granted a
first priority lien on all of the Debtors' property, a junior lien
on all of the Debtors' property that is subject to valid liens in
existence immediately prior to the Petition Date, and a first
priority lien on all Prepetition Collateral.

According to Marc Kieselstein, P.C., Esq., at Kirkland & Ellis
LLP, in New York, the Debtors are confident that their operational
initiatives will stabilize their financial performance and
position them in the marketplace for the long-term but the Debtors
still faced the near-maturity of $200 million in secured second
lien notes.  In light of this pending maturity, the Debtors'
publishers expressed concern regarding the Debtors' ability to
honor their obligations for the "back-to-school" textbook and
merchandise purchaser.

NEXITY FINANCIAL: Case Converted to Chapter 7 Liquidation
---------------------------------------------------------
BankruptcyData.com reports that the U.S. Bankruptcy Court approved
Nexity Financial's motion for an order authorizing the Debtors to
convert their Chapter 11 reorganization case to Chapter 7
liquidation status.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on June 6, 2011,
Nexity Financial asked the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District
of Delaware to (i) convert its case to one under Chapter 7 of the
Bankruptcy Code; and (ii) to direct the U.S. Trustee to appoint a
Chapter 7 trustee.

The Debtor submitted that conversion of the Chapter 11 case is
appropriate given its inability to confirm the prepackaged plan.
The Debtor adds that with the closing of Nexity Bank, the Debtor
has no remaining ability to reorganize.  Moreover, the Debtor does
not believe that the value of its remaining funds is sufficient to
fund the drafting and solicitation of a chapter 11 liquidating
plan, or to make any distributions to creditors thereunder.

NEXSTAR FINANCE: Moody's 'B3' Corporate Unaffected by New Plans
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service said Nexstar Broadcasting's announced
plan to explore strategic alternatives, including a possible sale
of the company, does not impact the B3 corporate family rating of
Nexstar Finance Holdings, Inc. (Nexstar) given the absence of a
timeframe and lack of clarity on possible outcomes.

A sale to a private equity sponsor could increase leverage and
negatively impact the credit profile, whereas a sale to a
strategic operator, depending on the financing, could enhance
scale and improve the credit profile. Moody's will continue to
monitor developments in the process and comment as more
information becomes available.

The principal methodologies used in rating this issuer were Global
Broadcast Industry published in June 2008 and Loss Given Default
for Speculative-Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada
and EMEA published in June 2009.

Based in Irving, Texas, Nexstar owns, operates, programs or
provides sales and other services to 63 television stations and
related digital signals in 34 markets in 14 states and reaches
approximately 13 million viewers. Its annual revenue in 2010 was

PETSMART INC: S&P Affirms Corporate Credit Rating at 'BB'
---------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its outlook on Phoenix-
based PetSmart Inc. to positive from stable. "At the same time, we
affirmed our 'BB' corporate credit rating on the company," S&P
said.

"The rating on PetSmart reflects our expectation for operational
stability and modest improvement of credit measures over the near
term," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Mariola Borysiak. "We
expect profitability to keep benefiting from stronger sales and
improving sales mix as consumers continue to shift back to higher
margin discretionary products."


PHILLIPS RENTAL: Parties-in-interest Want Plan Outline Disapproved
------------------------------------------------------------------
Creditors and parties-in-interest Citizens Bank and Regions Bank,
ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of
Tennessee to deny approval of Phillips Rental Properties, LLC's
disclosure statement explaining the proposed plan of
reorganization.

Citizens Bank asserts that:

   a. The Plan does not comply with Section 1122 of the Bankruptcy
   Code.  In the instant case the Debtor has created one class
   (Class Three) of secured claims: Citizens Bank retains a first
   mortgage on real estate located at Pecan Wood, 6 York Circle,
   702 Swadley Road, 39 Embassy Row, and 419 Cottonwood.  It is
   believed that no other secured creditor within the class
   retains a lien on this property.  Secured creditors with claims
   against different properties are generally required to be
   placed in separate classes.

   b. The Plan violates Section 1129(a)(5) because no
   identification of the Debtor's future directors, officers, or
   voting trustees has been provided. Moreover, there is no
   identification of the continued relationship of insiders in the
   reorganized Debtor.

Citizens Bank is represented by:

          Douglas L. Payne, Esq.
          401 West Irish Street
          Greeneville, TN 37743
          Tel: (423) 639-2220

In a separate motion, Regions Bank, asks the Court to direct the
Debtor to amend or otherwise revise the Disclosure Statement so as
to provide adequate information.

The bank asserts that the disclosure statement provides only
superficial information, omits important details, and fails to
provide adequate information to allow a hypothetical investor to
determine whether to accept or reject the proposed Plan.

The bank says that the Debtor has not provided an estimated return
that creditors would receive in a liquidation.  According to the
bank, the absence of any numerical values suggests that the Debtor
has not conducted a thoughtful analysis, which is necessary given
that by its own estimate the value of its assets exceeds its
liabilities by over $4.2 million.

The bank adds that the Debtor appears to assert that it has some
type of claim or cause of action against Regions Bank, but it has
provided no information about such claim(s).  If this asset
exists, the Debtor must explain and value the asset.  It has not
done so.

Regions Bank is represented by:

         Walter N. Winchester, Esq.
         WINCHESTER, SELLERS, FOSTER & STEELE, P.C.
         P.O. Box 2428
         Knoxville, TN 37901-2428
         Tel: (865) 637-1980

The Debtor submitted to the Court a plan of reorganization and
disclosure statement dated June 16.

The Plan reflects a payment schedule for the Debtor's secured loan
claims.  The Debtor says it is simultaneously pursuing additional
refinancing options which would pay secured creditors the full
principal balance.

Under the Plan, unsecured non-priority claims will be paid over a
60-month period.  These claims will have a 100% pay-off of the
principal balance of claims, which the Debtor estimates to be
$70,264.

A copy of the Disclosure Statement is available at:

     http://bankrupt.com/misc/PHILLIPSRENTAL_Jun16DS.pdf

The Debtor believes that unsecured creditors will be paid more
from the payments described under the Plan from its continued
operation than unsecured creditors would receive in liquidation.

In light of the proposed Plan, the Debtor's request for an
extension of its exclusive plan filing period has been withdrawn.
As previously reported by The Troubled Company Reporter, the
Debtor sought a 45-day extension from June 4 of its exclusivity
period.  Several creditors, including TriSummit Bank, Regions Bank
and Citizens Bank expressed objection to the request.

POTTERS HOLDINGS: S&P Assigns 'B' Corporate Credit Rating
---------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned a 'B' corporate credit
rating to Malvern, Pa.-based Potters Holdings II L.P. The outlook
is stable.

At the same time, Standard & Poor's assigned 'B' issue-level
ratings (same as the corporate credit rating) and '3' recovery
ratings to Potters' $190 million first-lien facilities, consisting
of a $40 million revolving credit facility due 2016 (undrawn at
close) and a $150 million term loan B due 2017. The '3' recovery
rating indicates the expectation of meaningful recovery (50% to
70%) in the event of a payment default.

Standard & Poor's also assigned a 'CCC+' issue-level rating (two
notches below the corporate credit rating) and a '6' recovery
rating to the $112.5 million second-lien term loan due 2017. The
'6' recovery rating indicates the expectation of negligible
recovery (0% to 10%) in the event of a payment default.

With revenues greater than $275 million, Potters is a global
producer of solid and hollow glass spheres for use in highway
safety and in applications for polymer additives, metal finishing,
and conductive materials. The stable outlook reflects the
expectation that end-market demand should support the company over
the next few years.

Potters' highly leveraged financial profile and ownership
constrain the ratings. Potters is an unrestricted subsidiary that
is 100% owned by PQ Corp., which sought the separation financing.
Proceeds from the debt issuance were used to pay down
approximately $245 million of first-lien debt under PQ's credit
facility, with the balance for expenses and a small amount of
balance sheet cash. There is no change in equity ownership through
this transaction, and The Carlyle Group will remain the majority
owner of both companies (INEOS Group will continue to hold a large
part of the remainder, with the balance held by management).

Standard & Poor's characterizes The Carlyle Group's financial
policies as very aggressive. "We expect that growth investments,
including acquisitions, could be a prioritized use for free
operating cash flow," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Ket
Gondha.

"The ratings also reflect the company's status as a newly
independent entity and the challenges associated with establishing
independent management functions," Mr. Gondha continued.

Since Potters has separated from PQ, it does not have a history as
an independent entity, and this provides limited visibility into
how the entity will perform once independent. In addition, various
corporate functions throughout the company are unfilled or
nonexistent. To help ensure a smooth transition, Potters has a
three-year transition service agreement that will enable it to
continue various support services historically provided by PQ.

QUALITY DISTRIBUTION: Amends $35 Million Securities Offering
------------------------------------------------------------
Quality Distribution, Inc., filed with the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission Amendment No. 1 to Form S-3 registration
statement relating to the offer and sale, from time to time, in
one or more series or issuances and on terms that the Company will
determine at the time of the offering, any combination of the
securities described in this prospectus, up to an aggregate amount
of $35,000,000.  In addition, the Company's stockholders may offer
and resell, from time to time, up to 7,882,530 shares of the
Company's common stock.

The Company's common stock is traded on The NASDAQ Global Market
under the symbol "QLTY."  The amendment provides that the last
reported sale price of the Company's common stock on July 19,
2011, was $12.24 per share.

A full-text copy of the amended prospectus is available for free
at http://is.gd/9DbnFN

                     About Quality Distribution

Quality Distribution, LLC, and its parent holding company, Quality
Distribution, Inc., are headquartered in Tampa, Florida.  The
company is a transporter of bulk liquid and dry bulk chemicals.
The company's 2010 revenues are approximately $686 million.
Apollo Management, L.P., owns roughly 30% of the common stock of
Quality Distribution, Inc.

The Company's balance sheet at March 31, 2011, showed
$281.43 million in total assets, $405.83 million in total
liabilities, and a $124.40 million total shareholders' deficit.

                          *     *     *

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Feb. 18, 2011,
Moody's Investors Service said the $38 million public offering of
4 million shares of Quality Distribution's common stock on Feb. 9,
2011, does not affect Quality's 'Caa1' corporate family and
probability of default ratings with a positive outlook.  However,
Moody's notes that the intended debt reduction at par from $17.5
million of the proceeds would be viewed favorably.

In the Nov. 8, 2010 edition of the TCR, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services said that it has raised its corporate credit ratings on
U.S.-based Quality Distribution Inc. to 'B' from 'B-'.  S&P also
removed the ratings from CreditWatch, where S&P had placed them
with positive implications on Oct. 28, 2010, following the launch
of the bond offering.  The outlook is stable.

"The rating action reflects the improvement in Quality
Distribution's financial profile after completing its
refinancing," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Anita Ogbara.
"Following the transaction, S&P expects Quality Distribution to
benefit from lower interest expense, improved cash flow adequacy,
and a substantial reduction in debt maturities over the next few
years."


QUEBEC LP: S&P Assigns Preliminary 'B' Corporate Credit Rating
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its preliminary 'B'
corporate credit rating to New Jersey-based Quebec LP (d/b/a
Clement Pappas), following the announcement of Clement Pappas'
acquisition by Lassonde Industries (not rated). The outlook is
stable.

"At the same time, we assigned our preliminary 'B' issue level
rating to the company's $230 million senior secured term loan due
2017. The preliminary recovery ratings are '4', indicating our
expectation of average (30% to 50%) recovery for creditors in the
event of a payment default," S&P related.

"Our ratings are based on preliminary documentation and subject to
review of final documentation. Upon review of final documentation
we will issue our final ratings, which may change from our
preliminary ratings. We estimate Clement Pappas will have about
$254 million in reported debt outstanding following the
transaction," S&P stated.

"We believe credit measures will remain consistent with 'B' rating
category medians over the near term, including pro forma adjusted
leverage of 4.5x for the fiscal year ending September 2010, which
we estimate could improve to about 4x in fiscal 2012," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Rick Joy. "Although pro forma
funds from operations to total debt will be about 22% for fiscal
year ending September 2010, we forecast fiscal 2012 FFO to total
debt will decline to about 15% as a result of margin pressure."

The outlook on Clement Pappas is stable. Standard & Poor's expects
the company's operating performance to remain relatively stable
over the near-to-intermediate term and credit metrics to remain in
line with its rating category medians. "We could consider a lower
rating if operating performance deteriorates, the company's
financial policy becomes more aggressive, and/or liquidity becomes
constrained, including covenant cushion decreasing well below 20%.
However, though unlikely in the near term, we could consider
raising the rating if the company is able to further diversify its
business line and product offerings."


QUEPASA CORP: Inks Pact to Acquire myYearbook for $100 Million
--------------------------------------------------------------
Quepasa Corporation announced has executed a definitive agreement
to merge with Insider Guides, Inc., DBA myYearbook, for $100
million, comprised of approximately $82 million in Quepasa common
stock and approximately $18 million in cash.

"With this merger, we intend to create nothing less than the
public market leader in social discovery," noted Quepasa CEO, John
Abbott.  "Combination with myYearbook nearly doubles the size of
Quepasa's existing user base while positioning the new company for
significantly higher growth in mobile and social games,
advertising, and virtual currency.  The myYearbook team is
product-oriented and hungry to continue building innovative
products at the convergence of social and mobile.  We expect the
scale of this combination to enable a new class of investor in
Quepasa.  We believe myYearbook's proven track record in
monetization and engagement will fuel significant future growth."

Over the past 12 months, myYearbook has experienced rapid growth
in users and in mobile traffic.  With over 1 billion page views on
mobile platforms and 1.2 billion page views on the web each month,
myYearbook is one of the largest media properties in the US.  It
is also the #1 Web site in the comScore Teens category with more
visits, minutes, and pageviews than any other site in the
category.  By emphasizing social discovery, focusing on the people
users want to know rather than the people they already know, the
service has built a large and growing user base, especially in the
teen and young adult demographic.  In 2010, myYearbook generated
$23.7 million in revenue, up 53% year-over-year, and EBITDA of
$4.9 million, up 315% year-over-year.

"We are thrilled to bring our vision of social discovery to a
global audience through combination with Quepasa," noted Geoff
Cook, CEO of myYearbook.  "Meeting new people is now -- and has
always been -- one of the Internet's core activities.  This
combination creates the scale needed to build the #1 player in
social discovery.  What excites me most about this opportunity is
applying myYearbook's platform for monetization and engagement to
Quepasa's fast-growing markets while also doubling the size of our
development team to execute against an aggressive product pipeline
focused on social, mobile, and virtual currency."

Key highlights of the combined business include:

   1. Consolidated TTM Revenues and EBITDA of $33.6 million and
      $5.9 million, respectively, as of the twelve months ended
      March 31, 2011;

   2. 4 billion monthly advertising impressions with 1 billion on
      mobile and 3 billion on the web as of June, 2011;

   3. Total registered web users of 70.9 million, 2.2 million
      mobile installs (1.4 million on Android and 800 thousand on
      iPhone), 11.5 million mobile game installs, 2.1 million
      social game installs and monthly page views of 2.4 billion
      in June, 2011;

   4. Dramatic mobile growth from 2% of daily myYearbook users
      logging in on a mobile device in January, 2010 to 40% of
      daily users logging in on a mobile device in June, 2011;

   5. Successful mobile platform to be leveraged across Latin
      America, the United States, and other geographies;

   6. Experienced social media team of 200+ people with 100+
      engineers/product and 23 in Sales group;

   7. Quepasa Games' social game IP creates vertically integrated,
      high-margin social gaming revenue stream for myYearbook;

   8. Vibrant virtual currency which accounts for one-quarter of
      myYearbook revenue;

   9. Highly complementary mix of cross-platform advertising
      products, including Quepasa Social Contests and myYearbook
      Social Theater

Following the completion of the merger, which is expected in the
fourth quarter of 2011, subject to certain closing considerations
described in the Merger Agreement, Geoff Cook will serve as Chief
Operating Officer of Quepasa Corporation and President of its
Consumer Internet Division while joining the company's Board of
Directors.  Current myYearbook Board members, Rick Lewis, a
Partner at myYearbook investor U.S. Venture Partners, and Terry
Herndon, angel investor, will also join the Quepasa Board.
Together with Geoff Cook, the myYearbook designees to the Quepasa
Board represent the three largest shareholders in myYearbook.

operated and managed in accordance with certain prescribed
standards and that participants and beneficiaries, as well as
regulators, are provided or have access to sufficient information
to protect the rights and benefits of participants and
beneficiaries under employee benefit plans.  Because the Debtors
continued to distribute assets of the Pension Plan through October

2010.

The Debtors agreed to pay CAI a flat fee of $5,000.  The
compensation negotiated with CAI was the result of arm's-length

REAL MEX: Moody's Downgrades Corporate Family Rating to 'Ca'
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Real Mex Restaurants, Inc.'s
Probability of Default and Corporate Family ratings to Ca from
Caa3. The company's senior secured notes due 2013 were lowered to
Caa2 from Caa1. The Speculative Grade Liquidity (SGL) rating was
affirmed at SGL-4. The ratings outlook was changed to stable from
negative.

Ratings downgraded:

Corporate Family Rating to Ca from Caa3

Probability of Default Rating to Ca from Caa3

$130 million 2nd lien senior secured notes due 2013 to Caa2 (LGD
2, 27%) from Caa1 (LGD 2, 27%)

Ratings affirmed:

Speculative Grade Liquidity rating at SGL - 4

RATINGS RATIONALE

The downgrade reflects Moody's view that Real Mex will likely
default on its debt obligations in the very near-term. The company
has informed us that it did not make its interest payment of
approximately $9.1 million due July 1, 2011 on the $130 million
2nd lien senior secured notes. While the bond indenture governing
the senior secured notes allows a 30-day grace period after the
interest payment due date, Moody's views the default probability
as high given the company's very weak liquidity. The Ca Corporate
Family Rating also incorporates the high probability of debt
impairment within the capital structure given the company's very
high leverage relative to its cash flow generation and asset base.

The Probability of Default rating could be revised to D if the
company files for bankruptcy or defaults on all of its debt
obligations. The PDR could be appended with the symbol "/LD" if
the company defaults on a limited set of its debt obligations.

Moody's does not anticipate upward rating momentum in the near
term given the operating environment and the high likelihood the
company will file for bankruptcy or undertake a distressed debt
exchange. A balance sheet restructuring that materially lowers
debt levels and improves liquidity could lead to an upgrade. The
ratings could be downgraded if the operating environment worsens
and Moody's estimate of debt impairment at default materially
increases.

Moody's last rating action on Real Mex occurred on May 9, 2011
when its Corporate Family and Probability of Default ratings were
downgraded to Caa3 from Caa2 and the SGL rating was lowered to
SGL-4.

The principal methodology used in rating Real Mex Restaurants,
Inc. was the Global Restaurant Industry published in June 2011.
Other methodologies used include Loss Given Default for
Speculative-Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada and
EMEA published in June 2009.

Real Mex Restaurants, Inc., headquartered in Cypress, California,
is a leading Mexican-themed restaurant chain operator that owns,
operates and franchises casual dining restaurants primarily under
the El Torito, Chevys Fresh Mex and Acapulco Mexican Restaurant
concepts. Total revenues for twelve months ended March 27, 2011
were approximately $474 million.


REAL MEX: S&P Cuts Corp. Credit Rating to 'D' on Missed Payment
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit
rating on Cypress, Calif.-based Real Mex Restaurants Inc. to 'D'
from 'CCC'. "We also lowered our issue-level rating on the
company's $130 million secured notes due 2013 to 'D' from 'CCC'.
The '4' recovery rating on the notes remains unchanged and
indicates our expectation for average (30% to 50%) recovery of
principal in the event of a payment default," S&P said.

The downgrade reflects Real Mex's missed interest payment due July
1, 2011 on its $130 million secured notes. "Although it has a 30-
day grace period to make the payment, we believe this is unlikely
given our assessment of weak liquidity, based on our criteria. The
company disclosed that it is in negotiations with lenders to amend
certain financial covenants. It also has meaningful debt
maturities as its revolving credit facility matures in July
2012 and its secured notes in 2013. Given these financial
characteristics, we believe the company will likely seek to
restructure its balance sheet and, in our opinion, could file for
protection under Chapter 11," S&P added.


REYNOLDS GROUP: S&P Assigns 'BB-' Issue Debt Rating to Sr. Notes
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned an issue debt rating
of 'BB-' (one notch above the corporate credit rating) and a
recovery rating of '2' to the $1.5 billion of proposed senior
secured notes due 2019 that entities of the Reynolds Group will
issue into escrow. Upon closing of the Graham acquisition, these
notes will become the joint obligation of Reynolds Group Issuer
Inc., Reynolds Group Issuer LLC, and Reynolds Group Issuer
(Luxembourg) S.A. The recovery rating indicates the expectation
for substantial (70% to 90%) recovery in the event of a payment
default.

In addition, Standard & Poor's assigned an issue rating of 'B-'
(two notches below the corporate credit rating) and a recovery
rating of '6' to the $500 million of proposed senior unsecured
notes due 2019 that will become joint obligations of the same
issuers. The '6' recovery rating indicates the expectation for
negligible (0% to 10%) recovery in the event of a payment default.

Reynolds will use proceeds from the two proposed note offerings,
together with proceeds from a proposed $2 billion term loan
(previously rated) as well as some cash on hand, to finance the
Graham acquisition.

All existing ratings on Reynolds, including the 'B+' corporate
credit rating, remain unchanged. The rating outlook on Reynolds is
negative. "The ratings on Reynolds reflect its strong business
risk profile as a premier provider of food and beverage packaging
and a highly leveraged financial risk profile," said Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Cynthia Werneth.

Even before the acquisition of Graham, Reynolds is one of the
world's leading and most diversified consumer and foodservice
packaging providers. The acquisition of Graham adds a leading
maker of innovative rigid plastic packaging with high and
relatively stable operating profitability.

However, Standard & Poor's is revising its liquidity assessment on
Reynolds to "less than adequate" from "adequate", primarily
because of the proposed increase in term loan amortization.

All ratings on Graham entities (including the 'B' corporate credit
rating) remain on CreditWatch with positive implications. "We will
raise all the Graham ratings by one notch if the transaction
closes as currently structured and Graham's senior unsecured and
subordinated notes remain in place," Ms. Werneth said.

SENSIVIDA MEDICAL: Posts $374,600 Net Loss in May 31 Quarter
------------------------------------------------------------

Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania, expressed substantial doubt about
Sensivida Medical Technologies' ability to continue as a

incurred significant losses from operations, has negative working
capital and an accumulated deficit.

the Company's Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer
through July 20, 2015.  The Employment Agreement provides for an
annual base salary of $850,000.  If Mr. Frear's employment is

                       About Sirius XM Radio

Based in New York, Sirius XM Radio Inc. has two principal wholly
owned subsidiaries, XM Satellite Radio Holdings Inc. and Satellite
CD Radio Inc.  XM Satellite Radio Holdings Inc. owns XM Satellite
Radio Inc., the operating company for the XM satellite radio
service.  Satellite CD Radio Inc. owns the Federal Communications
Commission license associated with the SIRIUS satellite radio
service.  XM Satellite Radio Inc. owns XM Radio Inc., the holder
of the FCC license associated with the XM satellite radio service.

In July 2008, the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, Vernon Merger
Corporation, merged with and into XM Satellite Radio Holdings Inc.
and, as a result, XM Satellite Radio Holdings Inc. became Sirius'
wholly owned subsidiary.

The Company's balance sheet at March 31, 2011, showed $7.22
billion in total assets, $6.93 billion in total liabilities and
$298.62 million total stockholders' equity.

                           *     *     *

Sirius carries (i) a 'BB-' corporate credit rating from Standard &
Poor's and (ii) 'B3' corporate family rating and 'B2' probability
of default rating from Moody's.

In October 2010, Moody's said the upgrade of Sirius XM's CFR to
'B3' from 'Caa1' reflects Moody's view that EBITDA (incorporating
Moody's standard adjustments) less capital spending to interest
expense will grow and comfortably exceed 1x in 2011, reflecting
higher than anticipated subscribers and revenue and reduced debt
service and programming costs.  As announced on October 1, 2010,
the company expects to add more than 1.3 million subscribers in
FY2010, bringing the year end total to 20.1 million and exceeding
prior expectations.  Despite high churn in the subscriber base,
vulnerability to cyclical consumer spending, and increasing
wireless competition, Moody's believe subscriptions will grow
through the end of 2011 as the economy and automotive sales
recover.  Heightened capital spending related to the ongoing
construction and launch of two satellites will likely limit free
cash flow generation in 2011.  The rating also reflects the
company's sizable debt burden as well as the need to invest
significantly in programming, marketing, launching new services,
and maintaining a satellite fleet to attract subscribers in
addition to delivering content.

As reported by the Troubled Company reporter on Dec. 14, 2010,
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its corporate credit
rating on Sirius XM Radio and its subsidiaries, XM Satellite Radio
Holdings Inc. and XM Satellite Radio Inc. (which S&P analyze on a
consolidated basis), to 'BB-' from 'B+'.  The rating outlook is
stable.  "The action reflects the company's improving operating
performance, declining debt leverage, and the prospects for
continued improvement in credit measures for full-year 2010 and
2011," explained Standard & Poor's credit analyst Hal Diamond.


SKINNY NUTRITIONAL: Receives $2.17MM from Common Stock Offering
---------------------------------------------------------------
As previously reported, in March 2011, Skinny Nutritional Corp.
commenced a private offering on a "best efforts" basis pursuant to
which it is offering an aggregate amount of $2,000,000 of shares
of common stock at $0.03 per share of common stock, plus an
oversubscription right of up to $500,000 of additional shares of
common stock.

On July 14, 2011, the Company terminated further selling efforts
in connection with the Offering and as of that date, the Company
had accepted subscriptions for 73,483,333 shares of Common Stock
for total gross proceeds of $2,204,500.  The total net proceeds
derived from the Offering, after payment of offering expenses and
commissions, are approximately $2,170,000.  The Company agreed to
pay commissions to registered broker-dealers that procured
investors in the Offering of 10% of the proceeds received from
such purchasers and to issue such persons such number of shares of
restricted common stock as equals 5% of the total number of shares
of Common Stock sold in the Offering to investors procured by
them.

Subsequently, on July 14, 2011, the Company entered into a stock
purchase agreement with an individual accredited investor in a
separate transaction pursuant to which such investor purchased
16,666,667 shares of Common Stock and warrants to purchase
16,666,667 shares of Common Stock for a total purchase price of
$500,000.  The warrants are exercisable for a period of 36 months
at an exercise price of $0.05 per share.  The purchase price for
the securities sold to this investor was $0.03 per share.

The Company intends to use the proceeds from these transactions
for working capital and general corporate purposes.

SOUTHSHORE COMMUNITY: Closed; American Momentum Assumes Deposits
----------------------------------------------------------------
American Momentum Bank of Tampa, Fla., acquired the banking
operations, including all the deposits, of Southshore Community
Bank of Apollo Beach, Fla., and LandMark Bank of Florida of
Sarasota, Fla.  The two banks were closed on Friday, July 22,
2011, by the Florida Office of Financial Regulation, which
appointed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation as receiver.
To protect the depositors, the FDIC entered into a purchase and
assumption agreement with American Momentum Bank.

Southshore Community Bank had two branches, and LandMark Bank of
Florida had six branches.  All eight branches of the two closed
banks will reopen during normal business hours as branches of
American Momentum Bank.  Depositors of the two failed banks will
automatically become depositors of American Momentum Bank.
Deposits will continue to be insured by the FDIC, so there is no
need for customers to change their banking relationship in order
to retain their deposit insurance coverage up to applicable
limits.  Customers of the two failed banks should continue to use
their existing branches until they receive notice from American
Momentum Bank that it has completed systems changes to allow other
branches of American Momentum Bank to process their accounts as
well.

As of March 31, 2011, Southshore Community Bank had around $46.3
million in total assets and $45.3 million in total deposits; and
LandMark Bank of Florida had total assets of $275.0 million and
total deposits of $246.7 million.  In addition to assuming all of
the deposits of the two Florida banks, American Momentum Bank
agreed to purchase essentially all of their assets.

Customers with questions about the transaction should call the
FDIC toll-free: for Southshore Community Bank customers, 1-800-
894-2013, and for LandMark Bank of Florida customers, 1-800-889-
4976.  Interested parties also can visit the FDIC's Web sites: for
Southshore Community Bank,

http://www.fdic.gov/bank/individual/failed/southshore.html

and for LandMark Bank of Florida,

http://www.fdic.gov/bank/individual/failed/LandMark.html

The FDIC estimates that the cost to the Deposit Insurance Fund for
Southshore Community Bank will be $8.3 million and for LandMark
Bank of Florida, $34.4 million.  Compared to other alternatives,
American Momentum Bank's acquisition of the two institutions was
the least costly resolution for the FDIC's DIF.

The closings are the 56th and 57th FDIC-insured institutions to
fail in the nation so far this year and the eighth and ninth in
Florida.  The last FDIC-insured institution closed in the state
was First Peoples Bank, Port Saint Lucie, on July 15, 2011.

SUNBRIDGE CAPITAL: Avoidance Suit v. Gulf City Stays in Bankr. Ct.
------------------------------------------------------------------
The Bankruptcy Court is a proper venue for the lawsuit,
Christopher J. Redmond, Trustee, v. Gulf City Body & Trailer
Works, Inc., Adv. Proc. No. 11-06113 (Bankr. D. Kan.), Bankruptcy
Judge Dale L. Somers has ruled.  Mr. Redmond, as Chapter 7 trustee
for Sunbridge Capital, Inc., seeks to recover a $7,794.38
prepetition transfer, pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Sections 547, 548, and
550.  Gulf City seeks dismissal of the lawsuit for improper venue
under 28 U.S.C. Sec. 1409(b).  Judge Somers said the claims
alleged arose under title 11 and therefore are not within Sec.
1409(b), which limits venue to the district where the defendant
resides only for small-dollar claim "arising in" and "related to"
the bankruptcy case.  The Defendant's Motion to Dismiss is denied.

TAYLOR BEAN: $1.6 Billion Deal Overcomes Freddie Mac Protest
------------------------------------------------------------
Christopher Norton at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that a Florida
federal judge on Thursday overruled Freddie Mac's objection to a
$1.6 billion settlement allowing Taylor Bean & Whitaker Mortgage
Corp. to pay a bankruptcy claim related to a massive criminal
securities fraud that brought down the lender.

                         About Taylor Bean

Taylor, Bean & Whitaker Mortgage Corp. grew from a small Ocala-
based mortgage broker to become one of the largest mortgage
bankers in the United States.  In 2009, Taylor Bean was the
country's third largest direct-endorsement lender of FHA-insured
loans of the largest wholesale mortgage lenders and issuer of
mortgage backed securities.  It also managed a combined mortgage
servicing portfolio of approximately $80 billion.  The company
employed more that 2,000 people in offices located throughout the
United States.

Taylor Bean sought Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. M.D. Fla. Case
No. 09-07047) on Aug. 24, 2009.  Taylor Bean filed the Chapter 11
petition three weeks after federal investigators searched its
offices.  The day following the search, the Federal Housing
Administration, Ginnie Mae and Freddie Mac prohibited the company
from issuing new mortgages and terminated servicing rights.
Taylor Bean estimated more than $1 billion in both assets and
liabilities in its bankruptcy petition.

                          About Telkonet

Milwaukee, Wisconsin-based Telkonet, Inc. is a clean technology
company that develops and manufactures proprietary energy
efficiency and smart grid networking technology.

The Company reported a net loss attributable to common
stockholders of $1.77 million on $11.26 million of total revenue
for the year ended Dec. 31, 2010, compared with net income
attributable to common stockholders of $1.06 million on $10.52
million of total revenue during the prior year.

The Company's balance sheet at March 31, 2011, showed $15.14
million in total assets, $4.84 million in total liabilities,
$929,588 in redeemable preferred stock, Series, A, $719,157 in
redeemable preferred stock, Series B, and $8.65 million in total
stockholders' equity.

Company's ability to continue as a going concern, following the
2010 financial results.  RBSM noted that the Company has incurred
significant operating losses in current year and also in the past.


TEMPEL STEEL: S&P Assigns Prelim. 'B' Corporate Credit Rating
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned a preliminary 'B'
corporate credit rating to Illinois-based Tempel Steel Company.
"At the same time, we assigned a preliminary 'B' issue-level
rating to the company's proposed new $130 million senior secured
notes with a preliminary recovery rating of '4', indicating our
expectation of an average recovery (30%-50%) in a default
scenario. The outlook is stable. The company is currently in
litigation with its lending group under its existing credit
facility. The preliminary ratings assume that this litigation will
be resolved, and that there will be no meaningful related
contingencies upon completion of the proposed new debt issuance,"
S&P related.

Tempel Steel is one of the largest independent producers of
magnetic steel laminations used in the production of electric
motors and transformers. The company's products are used across a
variety of end markets: household and consumer, power supply and
infrastructure, passenger cars, oil, gas and mining, industrial
motors, and vehicles and locomotives. This, together with Tempel
Steel's global footprint, provides some diversity, but the
business is limited in scope to magnetic steel lamination.

Tempel Steel competes both with a highly fragmented base of
smaller independent producers and with larger, vertically
integrated motors and transformers manufacturers, many of which
are also its customers. "We view customer diversity as moderate,
with its top 10 customers accounting for no more than 30% of 2010
revenues. While Tempel Steel is capable of serving large
multinational manufacturers seeking to outsource their steel
lamination requirements and benefits from longstanding customer
relationships, it is exposed to changes in production levels and
outsourced volumes as many of its end markets are cyclical," S&P
said.

"We view the industry as capital intensive and price competitive,
and Tempel's operations exhibit a fair degree of operating
leverage," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Peter Kelly.

While EBITDA margin was negative in 2009 (due to depressed demand
and higher priced steel in inventory), profitability, which had
historically been in the low teens, partially recovered in 2010.
"Based on our expectation of moderate growth in the company's
markets over the next two years, we expect the company's
profitability to be broadly consistent with historical average
levels," said Mr. Kelly.

Pro forma for the proposed transaction, Standard & Poor's expects
the company's financial leverage, as measured by the ratio of
total adjusted debt to EBITDA, will be about 4.0x and funds from
operations (FFO) to total adjusted debt to be about 10%. "While we
expect that the current demand trends will enable the company to
maintain these financial metrics, credit ratios could fluctuate
with the demand cycle; for the rating, we would expect these
credit measures to be around 5.0x and 10%, respectively. Capital
expenditures will likely average about 3% of sales but working
capital requirements may somewhat limit free cash flow
generation," S&P added.

The outlook is stable.

TEXAS WYOMING: Trustee Can Sue Ex-Shareholders, 5th Circ. Says
--------------------------------------------------------------
Dan Rivoli at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that the Fifth Circuit
said Thursday that Texas Wyoming Drilling Inc.'s trustee can sue
former shareholders for $4 million in dividends they received
during the company's insolvency, upholding a Texas bankruptcy
court decision against one of the driller's targets.

A three-judge panel upheld the bankruptcy court's ruling against
one of Texas Wyoming's 32 pre-Chapter 11 petition shareholders,
Laguna Madre Oil & Gas II LLC, which sought to have the case
tossed because the drilling company had no standing to sue,
according to Law360.

Drilling contractor and service company Texas Wyoming Drilling,
Inc. -- http://www.texaswyoming.com-- sought Chapter 11
protection (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 07-41650) on Apr. 16, 2007;
is represented by Jeffery D. Carruth, Esq., Mark A. Castillo,
Esq., and Stephanie Diane Curtis, Esq., at The Curtis Law Firm,
P.C., in Dallas, Tex.; and estimated its assets and debts at more
than $1 million to $100 million at the time of the filing.

The Bankruptcy Court confirmed Texas Wyoming's Chapter 11 plan on
Nov. 13, 2008, and that plan was declared effective before the end
of the year.  The Reorganized Debtor commenced post-confirmation
litigation (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Adv. Pro. No. 09-04015) on Apr. 29,
2009, against recipients of dividends, asserting that dividend
payments were avoidable as fraudulent transfers.  On July 14,
2009, following a material default under the chapter 11 plan, the
Court, sua ponte based on 11 U.S.C. Sec. 1112(b)(4)(N), converted
the Reorganized Debtor's chapter 11 case to a Chapter 7
proceeding, and the U.S. Trustee appointed John Dee Spicer to
serve as the Chapter 7 Trustee.  The recipients moved for summary
judgment, arguing, inter alia, that debtor lacked standing to
pursue the avoidance claims.  The Honorable Dennis Michael Lynn
disagrees, and gave Mr. Spicer the green light to pursue his
claims against the recipients.


THERMOENERGY CORP: Amends Bridge Loan Agreement with Empire
-----------------------------------------------------------
ThermoEnergy Corporation, on July 12, 2011, amended the Bridge
Loan and Warrant Amendment Agreement, dated as of June 17, 2011,
by and among us and Empire Capital Partners, LP; Empire Capital
Partners, Ltd; Empire Capital Partners Enhanced Master Fund, Ltd.;
Robert S. Trump; Focus Fund L.P.; Hughes Capital; Scott A. Fine;
and Peter J. Richards, in accordance with the terms of the
Agreement, to provide for the extension to the Company by Mr.
Trump and Empire of additional bridge loans in these amounts:

                                                Principal Amount
Noteholder                                         of Note
----------                                     ----------------
Robert S. Trump                                    $855,422
Empire Capital Partners, LP                        $248,493
Empire Capital Partners, Ltd                       $248,493
Empire Capital Partners Enhanced Master Fund, Ltd  $248,493

Pursuant to the Agreement, on July 12, 2011, the Company issued to
Mr. Trump and to each of the Empire entities the Company's
Promissory Note in the amount of his or its additional bridge
loan.

Pursuant to the Agreement, the Company agreed, subject to the
satisfaction of certain conditions, to amend certain of the Common
Stock Purchase Warrants held by or issuable to Mr. Trump, Empire
and the other parties to the Agreement (i) to provide that they
will be exercisable for the purchase of shares of the Company's
Series B Convertible Preferred Stock instead of Common Stock (with
the number of shares of Series B Stock determined by dividing by
ten the number of shares of Common Stock for which the Warrants
are currently exercisable) and (ii) to change the exercise prices
of the Warrants to $1.30 per share of Series B Stock (the
equivalent of $0.13 per Common-equivalent share).  The Investors
agreed, subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, to
exercise all of the Warrants.  The principal amount of the July 12
Notes is equal to the aggregate exercise price of Warrants
issuable to Mr. Trump and Empire upon the conversion into shares
of Series B Stock of convertible debt held by them.

The July 12 Notes are identical in form to the other Promissory
Notes issued by us pursuant to the Agreement.  They are payable on
demand at any time on or after Feb. 29, 2012.  They do not bear
interest until the Maturity Date and will bear interest at the
rate of 10% per annum from and after the Maturity Date.  The July
12 Notes may not be prepaid, in whole or in part, without the
prior written consent of the holders.  Mr. Trump and Empire have
agreed to surrender the July 12 Notes in payment of the exercise
price for the New Warrants if and when the conditions to their
issuance, amendment and exercise have been satisfied.  The July 12
Notes contain other conventional terms, including events of
default upon the occurrence, and during the continuation, of which
the July 12 Notes will bear interest at the rate of 10% per annum.

The Company intends to use the proceeds from the issuance of the
July 12 Notes for general working capital.

TWIN CITY: Funds in Deferred Compensation Plan Not Part of Estate
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Russ Kendig held that the funds in the deferred
compensation plan established by Twin City Hospital subject to
Internal Revenue Code 457(b), are not property of the estate
pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Sec. 541(b)(7)(A)(i)(II) and, therefore, are
not subject to Well's Fargo Bank N.A.'s DIP lien.  Judge Kendig
also held that the Debtor is judicially estopped from claiming
that the 457(b) Plan funds are part of the estate.

In his ruling, Judge Kendig pointed to a decision in the
bankruptcy case of Colonial BancGroup.  Twin City, among others,
argues that the 457(b) Plan contributions were not "withheld by an
employer" as that phrase is used in section 541(b)(7).  In support
of this argument, the debtor cites Schroeder v. New Century
Holdings. Inc. (In re New Century Holdings, Inc.), 387 B.R. 95,
114 (Bankr. D. Del. 2008) and other cases which distinguish
"deferred" compensation from "withheld" compensation and find that
"deferred" compensation is property of the estate.  In New
Century, the court found that a "deferral" occurs where "the
employee agreed to receive the income at a later date and never
actually possessed it" and a withholding occurs where "the
employee possessed the income at some point. . . ."

By contrast, Judge Kendig said, the court in In re Colonial
BancGroup. Inc., 436 B.R. 695, 712 (Bankr. M.D.. Ala. 2010) was
critical of this view.  The court found that "deferred" and
"withheld" could not be mutually exclusive concepts because
section 541(b)(7) excludes amounts "withheld" from "deferred"
compensation plans.  If "withheld" and "deferred" were interpreted
to be mutually exclusive concepts, the statute would be a nullity,
which could hardly be what Congress intended. Instead, the
Colonial BankGroup court found that when beneficiaries are
presently entitled to income, but have made a voluntary election
to make plan contributions, the income has been withheld within
the meaning of the statute.  This interpretation is more
consistent with the language of the statute as a whole and the
ordinary usage of the word" withheld" as applied to retirement
plans.  In Twin City's case, Judge Kendig said, the plan
participants were entitled to the plan contributions, but signed
income reduction agreements to redirect a part of their salaries
to the 457(b) Plan.  Accordingly, the court finds that the fund
were "withheld" as that term is used in 541(b).  Any other
linguistic machinations would serve to frustrate the clear intent
of Congress.

In May 2011, Warner Music Group Corp. and Access Industries, the
U.S.-based industrial group, announced the execution of a
definitive merger agreement under which Access Industries will
acquire WMG in an all-cash transaction valued at $3.3 billion.
The purchase includes WMG's entire recorded music and music
publishing businesses.

As reported by the TCR on July 18, 2011, Fitch Ratings has
affirmed and withdrawn the long-term Issuer Default Ratings and
issue ratings of Warner Music Group Corp., WMG Acquisition Corp.
and WMG Holdings Corp. Fitch has decided to discontinue the rating
due to insufficient information.

The ratings were previously on Rating Watch Negative, reflecting
the uncertainty of how the acquisition of WMG by Airplanes Music
LLC (an affiliate of Access Industries, Inc.) would be structured.
The Rating Watch Negative has not been resolved.  Any incremental
or higher coupon debt that drove interest coverage below 1.5 times
(x) could have triggered at least a one notch downgrade.

Delaware entered a 107-page opinion determining that the global
settlement agreement, among certain parties including WMI, the
Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and JPMorgan Chase Bank,
N.A., upon which the Plan is premised, and the transactions
contemplated therein, are fair, reasonable, and in the best
interests of WMI.  Additionally, the Opinion and related order
denied confirmation, but suggested certain modifications to the
Company's Sixth Amended Joint Plan of Affiliated Debtors that, if
made, would facilitate confirmation.

Washington Mutual has filed with the Bankruptcy Court a Modified
Sixth Amended Joint Plan and a related Supplemental Disclosure
Statement.  The Company believes that the Modified Plan has
addressed the Bankruptcy Court's concerns and looks forward to
returning to the Bankruptcy Court to seek confirmation of the
Modified Plan.


WATERSCAPE RESORT: Court Confirms Chapter 11 Plan
-------------------------------------------------
Lisa Uhlman at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that Waterscape Resort
LLC is on track to emerge from its brief stint in Chapter 11
following the approval of its reorganization plan Friday, three
days after negotiating a way to resolve disputes with the hotel's
builders.

According to Law360, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Stuart Bernstein
confirmed Waterscape Resort LLC's reorganization plan, which calls
for repaying much of the company's debt with proceeds from the
$128 million sale of the hotel section of the development.

                      About Waterscape Resort

Waterscape Resort LLC, aka Cassa NY Hotel And Residences, is a
Delaware limited liability company formed on or about Jan. 24,
2005.  The principal office of the Debtor is at 15 West 34th
Street, New York, New York 10001.  On July 19, 2005, Waterscape
acquired the property, consisting of the three contiguous
buildings at 66, 68 and 70 West 45th Street in Manhattan, for the
sum of $20 million to develop the property into a 45-storey
condominium project including a luxury hotel, a restaurant and
luxury residential apartments.  The purchase was financed with a
$17 million acquisition loan and mortgage from U.S. Bank
Association.

Construction of the hotel and residential units, given the name
Cassa NY Hotel and Residences, commenced in July 2007.  By the end
of September 2010, the hotel and residential units were completed.
The Debtor generates its revenue from guests who stay at the hotel
and in the Debtor's residential condominium units, and from sales
of unsold residential condominium units.  The Debtor's hotel and
rental business has produced gross revenues of approximately
$17 million to $18 million on an annual basis, and by the end of
September 2010, the Debtor had sold five residential apartment
units for a total of approximately $12,710,340.

The Debtor's Cassa NY Hotel and Residences features 165 hotel
rooms, and above the hotel units, 57 residences.  The Debtor's
restaurant will occupy the first level below ground, but will be
visible from the ground floor hotel lobby.  The Debtor's
restaurant is not yet open for business.

The Debtor has for several months been embroiled in litigation
with numerous contractors and subcontractors who have asserted
alleged mechanics lien claims against the Property totaling
approximately $20 million.

As of the Petition Date, the Debtor had outstanding approximately
$134.4 million of secured loan principal obligations under credit
facilities with US Bank and USB Capital Resources, Inc.  The debt
is secured by liens upon all of the assets of the Debtor,
including mortgages on the Debtor's real property, together with
liens on all rents, proceeds and cash of the Debtor, pledges of
member interests in Waterscape, and guarantees by Waterscape
members and other third-party grantors.  The Debtor's secured debt
was incurred under three separate agreements for: (i) an
acquisition and project loan; (ii) a construction loan; and (iii)
a mezzanine loan; each of which was made in connection with the
acquisition or development of the Debtor's property.

Over the last several months, the Debtor engaged in extensive
negotiations with the Secured Lenders regarding the parameters of
a comprehensive restructuring.  The Debtor also engaged in
extensive marketing efforts and negotiations to sell its hotel
assets to a non-insider buyer.  The restructuring discussions
between the Debtor and the Secured Lenders reached an impasse, and
on March 21, 2011, UBS, the junior of the two Secured Lenders,
filed a foreclosure action against the Debtor in the Supreme Court
of the State of New York, County of New York.

The Debtor then filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (Bankr.
S.D.N.Y. Case No. 11-11593) on April 5, 2011.  Brett D. Goodman,
Esq., and Lee William Stremba, Esq., at Troutman Sanders LLP
represent the Debtor as Bankruptcy Counsel.  Holland & Knight LLP
serves as its special litigation counsel.  The Debtor disclosed
$214,285,027 in assets and $158,756,481 in liabilities as of the
Chapter 11 filing.


WHITTLE DEVELOPMENT: Plan Hearing Scheduled for July 29
-------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas,
Dallas Division, approved the disclosure statement explaining the
Plan of Reorganization of Whittle Development Inc. and Mariah Bay
Development Inc. on June 29, 2011.

July 25, 2011, at 4:00 p.m., is fixed as the last day for filing
and serving written acceptances or rejections of the Plan.  All
Ballots must be mailed or faxed to:

  Attn: Whittle Development Ballots
  Attn: Mariah Bay Development Ballots
  Wright Ginsberg Brusilow P.C.
  325 N. St. Paul Street, Suite 4150
  Dallas, Texas 75201
  Fax: (214) 744-2615

July 29, 2011, at 1:30 p.m., is fixed for the hearing on the
Confirmation of the Plan.

The Plan, according to E.P. Keiffer, Esq., at Wright Ginsberg
Brusilow P.C., in Dallas, Texas, was drafted with the mission of
providing for the marketing and sale of the land portfolio of each
of the Debtors in a manner which will enable the unsecured
creditors to capture the resident equity in those portfolios,
while affording the secured creditors adequate protection of their
interests and a more dedicated sales force to enable their
collateral to fetch a higher price than they could secure vis--
vis foreclosure and marketing their portions of these Debtors
portfolios.  The Plan, he adds, enables unsecured creditors to
participate without the effect of the large guaranty claim of City
Bank Texas.

In essence the Plan is, in many respects, a controlled liquidation
of the Debtors' portfolios, with a prospect that, with the help of
the provisions regarding City Bank, all creditors in both cases
will have their allowed claims paid in full, Mr. Keiffer says.

make and pay monthly interest payments on the secured loan in
favor of Creditor 2009-1 CRE-Venture, LLC.

Mr. Robinson is not seeking interest payments on said loans.

of $41,327.63.

The Debtor relates that under 11 U.S.C. Section 101(51B), single
asset real estate debtors are required to file a plan or
reorganization (that has a reasonable possibility of being
confirmed within a reasonable time) or commence making monthly
payments within 90 days of the filing of the petition, or the
automatic stay is lifted.

WOLVERINE TUBE: U.S. Trustee Objects to Plan Confirmation
---------------------------------------------------------
Roberta A. DeAngelis, the United States Trustee for Region 3, asks
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware to deny
confirmation of the Plan of Reorganization filed by Wolverine
Tube, Inc., and its debtor affiliates, complaining that the
releases sought to be bestowed under several parties appear to
facially violate the ruling in In re Washington Mutual, Inc., et
al., 442 B.R. 314, 349-350 (Bankr. D. Del. 2011).

In the WaMu decision, the Court held, among other things, that
under applicable law, there was no basis whatsoever for the
debtors to grant releases to the debtors' directors and officers
or any professionals, current or former, because no evidence was
presented with respect to, among other things, a substantial
contribution" having been made to the case by the parties seeking
those releases, the U.S. Trustee notes.

With respect to the proposed release of third-party claims in
Article 10.21, the Plan Proponents must produce evidence
supporting the release of claims against certain third parties
and other entities including the officers and directors of non-
debtors, the U.S. Trustee asserts.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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