ACTIVECARE INC: Posts $2.90 Million Net Loss in June 30 Quarter
---------------------------------------------------------------
ActiveCare, Inc., filed its quarterly report on Form 10-Q,
reporting a net loss of $2.90 million on $184,899 of revenues for
the three months ended June 30, 2011, compared with a net loss of
$2.66 million on $145,140 of revenues for the three months ended
June 30, 2010.

The Company reported a net loss of $6.25 million on $573,667 of
revenues for the nine months ended June 30, 2011, compared with a
net loss of $5.63 million on $383,500 of revenues for the nine
months ended June 30, 2010.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2011, showed

and stockholders' equity of $112,095.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Dec. 8, 2010,
Hansen, Barnett & Maxwell, P.C., in Salt Lake City, Utah,
expressed substantial doubt about ActiveCare's ability to continue
as a going concern, following the Company's results for the fiscal
year ended Sept. 30, 2010.  The independent auditors noted that
the Company has incurred recurring operating losses and has an
accumulated deficit.

AIRVANA NETWORK: Moody's Affirms 'B3' Corporate Family Rating
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service said that Airvana Network Solutions
Inc.'s proposed amendment to its senior secured term loan would
have not affect the company's B3 corporate family rating,
probability of default rating and the senior secured term loan
rating.

The proposed amendment will reduce the excess cash flow sweep for
the September 2011 and December 2011 quarters.  The excess cash
flow sweep will be lowered from 100% to 50%, to the extent that
the company's actual performance exceeds projections provided to
the lenders in March 2011, such that the company's debt balances
are at least $25 million below the March 2011 plan, and
Debt/EBITDA leverage is at least 20% below the plan.  While
Moody's notes that the change in the excess cash sweep is a credit
negative, especially given the front loaded nature of the
company's bookings, the amount of cash outflows is projected to be
modest at $35 million over the next two quarters. Moreover,
increased billings have accelerated debt paydown since the close
of the $420 million term loan in 1Q 2011, resulting in a decrease
in the current loan balance to $292 million.

The rating outlook is stable.

Moody's has taken these rating actions:

Affirmed:

   Issuer: Airvana Network Solutions Inc.

   -- Corporate Family Rating, B3

   -- Probability of Default Rating, B3

   -- $420 million Senior Secured Term Loan, B3 (LGD4, 50%)

Rating Outlook: Stable

Airvana's B3 Corporate Family Rating reflects the dual nature of
the company's strong position as the sole supplier of critical
software that enables data communications on third generation (3G)
wireless CDMA networks deployed by Ericsson AB (formerly Nortel
Networks) and the near certain phase out of that 3G technology by
wireless carriers over the next decade. Therefore, the ratings are
tempered by the project finance nature of the company's revenue
stream over the next several years, which will be fully dependent
on orders from Ericsson, and by extension, from major end users
Verizon Wireless ("VZW") and Sprint Nextel. Given the uncertainty
in the timing of the slowdown of orders, acceleration in 4G
deployments by some carriers, and a shorter remaining tail in EV-
DO orders, Moody's is concerned that the company has amended the
terms of its $420 million senior secured term loan to eliminate
the 100% excess cash flow sweep for Q3 2011 and Q4 2011, and to
permit cash to be used for dividends, acquisitions or capital
investment. This amendment will slow down the accelerated rate of
principal repayment previously in place. On the other hand, the
ratings are supported by the company's continued high margins,
accelerated debt repayment thus far in 2011, and outperformance of
billings during the first half of the year.

The ratings are also supported by Airvana's very good liquidity,
modest leverage, limited capital expenditure needs and robust
current free cash flow generation. Moody's projects the company
will generate about $100 million of free cash flow for 2012, and
given the new amended terms, the rating agency expects the
company's cash balances to be higher than expected under the
previous loan terms, but still modest.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's view that the Company's
overall credit profile is unlikely to change significantly over
the next 18-24 months.

What Could Change the Rating -- UP

As the long term business sustainability is the primary driver
influencing the CFR, an upgrade is unlikely over the next 12-18
months. However, upward rating pressure would ensue if Airvana's
billings exceed its plan and the company is able to commensurately
reduce its outstanding debt.

What Could Change the Rating - DOWN

Downward rating pressure could develop if the company's free cash
flow declines faster than expected due to diminishing orders from
its customers, thereby endangering a timely repayment of the debt.

The principal methodology used in this rating was Moody's
Technology Software Methodology, published in May 2009.

Airvana, located in Chelmsford, MA, is a provider of network
infrastructure products used by wireless operators primarily in
the United States. The company generated about $270 million in
billings in 2010.

ALLEGHENY COUNTY: S&P Raises Rating on Revenue Bonds From 'BB+'
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its rating to 'BBB-'
from 'BB+' on Allegheny County Industrial Development Authority,
Pa.'s series 2010A charter school revenue bonds, issued on behalf
of School Facilities Development Inc. (SFD) for Propel Charter
Schools - Montour (Propel Montour).

"The upgrade reflects our assessment of Propel Montour's
successful five-year charter renewal in April 2011, while
maintaining positive operating results as well as strong debt
service coverage and liquidity position," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Carolyn McLean. "In addition, Propel Montour
reported above-average academic performance for the region and
good demand," said Ms. McLean.

Partially offsetting credit factors, in Standard & Poor's opinion,
include:

    The inherent future risk associated with the possibility of
    charter nonrenewal or revocation;

    The lack of practical independence between the respective
    board members that hold the charter for Propel Montour and
    other Propel Charter Schools; and

    The moderately aggressive growth plans of Propel Chart
    Schools.

The stable outlook reflects Standard & Poor's expectation that
enrollment levels will continue to generate adequate per pupil
revenues to provide good debt service coverage.  In addition,
Standard & Poor's expects management to maintain a good liquidity
position and strong reserves despite an administrative fee
structure that Propel Montour pays from its net operating profits.

Standard & Poor's could consider a higher rating if Propel Montour
continues to report strong debt service coverage, liquidity
position, and demand, as well as maintains its strong financial
position through the expansion of other Propel Charter Schools and
demonstrates more diversity in board oversight. "We could consider
a lower rating if the school reports weak debt service coverage,
deterioration in its liquidity position, and weakened demand, as
well as increased management fees, which help to fund operating
losses in other schools in the Propel network," S&P added.

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 June 30, 2011, showed $893,586 in
total assets, $4.86 million in total liabilities, all current, and
a $3.97 million total deficiency in stockholders' equity.


ASSOCIATED MATERIALS: Moody's Affirms 'B3' Corp. Family Rating
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed the ratings of Associated
Materials, LLC -- Corporate Family and Probability of Default
Ratings at B3 and its Senior Secured Notes at B3. In a related
rating action, Moody's changed the rating outlook to negative from
stable.

These ratings/assessments were affected by this action:

Corporate Family Rating affirmed at B3;

Probability of Default affirmed at B3; and,

$730 million Senior Secured Notes due 2017 affirmed at B3 (LGD4,
53%).

RATINGS RATIONALE

The B3 Corporate Family Rating reflects exposure to weak industry
conditions in the repair and remodeling sector and new home
construction - the main drivers of the company's revenues.
Operating margins are compressing. Depressed prospects for major
remodeling projects and weak forecasts for new housing
construction do not bode well for the company's operating
performance. Additionally, the rating incorporates the company's
elevated leverage and weak interest coverage ratios. At the same
time, Moody's recognizes Associated's sound business fundamentals
as one of the larger manufacturers and distributors of windows and
vinyl siding in North America. Some revolver availability and no
near-term maturities give the company some financial flexibility
to contend with ongoing uncertainties in its end markets.

The change in rating outlook to negative from stable results from
Moody's view that Associated's financial performance will continue
to be hindered by its leveraged capital structure and weak
prospects for its end markets well into 2012.

Factors which might result in negative rating actions include
erosion in Associated's liquidity profile or continued
deterioration in operating performance that results in EBITA-to-
interest expense sustained below 1.0 times or debt-to-EBITDA
remaining above 7.5 times (all ratios incorporate Moody's standard
adjustments).

A stabilization of the ratings could occur if Associated improves
its liquidity profile and demonstrates better operating
performance that results in EBITA-to-interest expense remaining
above 1.0 times and trending towards 1.5 times or debt-to-EBITDA
falls below 7.5 times, but trending towards 6.0 times (all ratios
incorporate Moody's standard adjustments).

The principal methodology used in rating Associated Materials, LLC
was the Global Manufacturing Industry Methodology published in
December 2007.  Other methodologies used include Loss Given
Default for Speculative-Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S.,
Canada and EMEA published in June 2009.

Associated Materials, LLC, headquartered in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio,
is a North American manufacturer and distributor of exterior
residential building products.  The company's core products are
vinyl windows, vinyl siding, aluminum trim coil, and aluminum and
steel siding and accessories.  Associated is also a distributor of
roofing materials, insulation, and exterior doors produced by
third parties. Hellman & Friedman LLC, ("H&F"), through its
respective affiliates, is the primary owner of Associated.
Revenues for the twelve months through July 2, 2011 totaled
approximately $1.1 billion.


BAINBRIDGE REALTY: Portions of Investment Trust Suit Goes to Trial
------------------------------------------------------------------
District Judge William E. Smith ruled that some of the claims in a
dispute concerning a failed mortgage loan transaction, or so-
called "hard money loan," may proceed to trial, while others must
be dismissed as a matter of law.  In a 24-count complaint, 514
Broadway Investment Trust sued Rhode Island residents who were
involved at the borrower's end of the transaction, including Rhode
Island businessman Craig Rapoza; his former real estate investment

appraiser Michael J. Miale, Sr.; Miale's employer Statewide Real
Estate Appraisal, LLC, a/k/a Statewide Real Estate Appraisal

BELTWAY ONE: Cash Collateral Hearing Continued Until Sept. 15
-------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Nevada has continued
until Sept. 15, 2011, at 1:30 p.m., the hearing to consider
Beltway One Development Group LLC's request to access Wells Fargo
Bank N.A.'s cash collateral.

The Court will also consider debtor-affiliate Ten Saints LLC's
request to access cash collateral on the same date and time.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on July 28, 2011,
prepetition, Beltway One entered into two separate loan
transactions:

     (i) Beltway One entered into a loan transaction with Colonial
Bank, N.A., effective Sept. 20, 2006, whereby Colonial lent
Beltway One the principal sum of $13.257 million, which was
secured by one parcel of the Debtor's real property called
Building 8, and all rents, income, revenues, issues and profits
arising or issuing from Beltway One's leases or other occupancy
agreements affecting the real property; and

   (ii) Beltway One entered into a loan transaction with Wachovia
Bank, N.A., effective May 16, 2008, whereby Wachovia lent the
principal sum of $10 million to Beltway One, which loan was
secured by one parcel of Beltway One's real property called as
Building 11, and all rents, income, revenues, issues, and profits
arising or issuing from Beltway One's leases or other occupancy
agreements affecting such other real property.

In August 2009, BB&T Corp. purchased the assets of Colonial.

According to papers filed in Court by Beltway One, on March 20,
2010, the Colonial/BBT Loan Maturity Date, the outstanding
obligation was $3.235 million.  Both prior to and after the
Colonial/BBT Maturity Date, Beltway One repeatedly contacted BBT
seeking to discuss the Colonial/BBT Loan, which calls and
correspondence, to date, have been unanswered.  Receiving no
response from BBT after repeated efforts to contact
BBT, Beltway One ceased tendering payments post-maturity; however,
BBT retains an Colonial/BBT interest reserve account.

Beltway One believes that the value of Building 8 -- the
Colonial/BBT Collateral -- exceeds the Colonial/BBT Secured Debt
as of Petition Date.

In October 2008, Wells Fargo became the successor-by-merger to
Wachovia.

Beltway One also said that on May 16, 2011, the Wachovia/Wells
Loan Maturity Date, the outstanding obligation was $9.789 million.
Beltway One believes that the value of Building 11 -- the
Wachovia/Wells Collateral -- exceeds the Wachovia/Wells Secured
Debt as of the Petition Date.

In its objection to the Cash Collateral Motion, Wells Fargo said
it has no desire to shut down Beltway One's business operations.
It filed the Objection to notify the Court of, and to preserve its
rights regarding, disputes with several of the allegations made by
Beltway One.  Wells Fargo said Beltway One concedes that all of
its postpetition revenues constitute Wells Fargo's cash
collateral.  However, Beltway One has incorrectly characterized
its prepetition cash and deposit accounts as assets free and clear
of Wells Fargo's liens, a position that is simply not consistent
with controlling law.  Beltway One also fails to offer sufficient
adequate protection against the diminution in value of Wells
Fargo's collateral.  Wells Fargo further objects to Beltway One's
assertion that certain non-debtor insiders had reduced their
maximum liability under the guaranties of Beltway One's
indebtedness to Wells Fargo.

                About Horizon Village Square et al.

Four related Las Vegas, Nevada-based entities sought Chapter 11
bankruptcy protection on July 13, 2011.  The businesses are owned
or managed by local business people and firms, including Todd
Nigro, Nigro Development LLC, a Nigro family trust and other
investors.

Horizon Village Square LLC (Bankr. D. Nev. Case No. 11-21034) owns
the Vons-anchored Horizon Village Square Shopping Center near I-
515 and Horizon Drive in Henderson.  The property includes five
retail buildings with nearly 43,000 square feet of space.

Ten Saints LLC (Bankr. D. Nev. Case No. 11-21028) owns the 134-
room Hampton Inn & Suites at St. Rose Parkway and Seven Hills
Drive in Henderson.

Beltway One Development Group LLC (Bankr. D. Nev. Case No. 11-
21026) owns the Desert Canyon Business Park at Russell Road and
the Las Vegas Beltway. It has two buildings and 15 acres.

Nigro HQ LLC (Bankr. D. Nev. Case No. 11-21014) owns an office
building at 9115 W. Russell Road occupied by Bank of George,
Infinity Plus LLC and Nigro Construction Inc.

Todd Nigro said the four bankruptcies were caused by threatened
foreclosures -- typically related to Wells Fargo Bank demanding
payments to keep loan-to-value ratios at specified levels.

Judge Mike K. Nakagawa presides over the cases.  Lawyers at Gordon
Silver serve as the Debtors' bankruptcy counsel.  The bankruptcy
petitions estimated assets and debts from $1 million to $10
million each for Nigro HQ; and from $10 million to $50 million in
both assets and debts for Horizon Village, Ten Saints and Beltway
One.

A fifth-related business, Russell Boulder LLC, filed for
bankruptcy (Bankr. D. Nev. Case No. 10-29724) on Oct. 19, 2010.
It owns the 600-suite Siena Suites extended stay property at
Boulder Highway and Russell Road.


BERNARD L. MADOFF: Judge Nixes Investors Bid for Docs
-----------------------------------------------------
Ian Thoms at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that a federal judge on
Thursday refused to force HSBC Holdings PLC, JPMorgan Chase & Co.
and a host of other defendants to turn over documents requested in
a multibillion-dollar suit brought by a putative class of
investors in foreign funds that fed Bernard L. Madoff's doomed
Ponzi scheme.

One day after another judge rejected a $62.5 million proposed
settlement between HSBC and the investors, U.S. Magistrate Judge
Henry Pitman dealt another blow to the plaintiffs, nixing their
broad discovery request, according to Law360.

                      About Bernard L. Madoff

Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC and Bernard L. Madoff
orchestrated the largest Ponzi scheme in history, with losses
topping US$50 billion.  On 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 US$6.88 billion in claims by
investors has been allowed, with US$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.


BLACKBOARD INC: S&P Lowers Corporate Credit Rating to 'B'
---------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit
rating on Blackboard Inc. to 'B' from 'B+' and removed it from
CreditWatch where it was placed with developing implications
on April 25, 2011, after it had announced it was exploring
strategic alternatives (please see the previous research reports
for details on this rating action as well as the subsequent
downgrade).

"We are also assigning a preliminary 'B+' bank loan rating to
Blackboard's $780 million first-lien term loan and $100 million
revolver with a preliminary recovery rating of '2', which
indicates substantial (70% to 90%) recovery in the event of a
payment default.  We are assigning a preliminary 'CCC+' bank
loan rating to the $350 million second-lien loan with a
preliminary recovery rating of '6' which indicates negligible (0%
to 10%) recovery in the event of a payment default," S&P stated.

The rating reflects Standard & Poor's view of Blackboard's
financial risk profile as highly leveraged, following its
leveraged buyout (LBO) with initial pro forma adjusted debt
leverage of about 8x.

"We believe the company's adjusted debt leverage ratio more than
offsets the company's fair business risk profile," said Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Jacob Schlanger.  "We expect it to decline
somewhat over the coming year, given our expectation for continued
revenue and EBITDA growth," he added.

The company has a leading position in the educational technology
market, with its products allowing users to deliver web-based
teaching, course and content management, community collaboration,
rapid communication, and on- and off-campus e-commerce
facilitation. The company derives more than half of revenues from
the higher education market, and the proposed combination with
Edline will enable it to solidify its position and cross sell its
products in the K-12 market as well.


BRIDGEVIEW AEROSOL: Settles With Wells Fargo on Claims, Cash Use
--------------------------------------- ------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Illinois
approved a settlement among Bridgeview Aerosol, LLC, et al., the
Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors, and Wells Fargo Bank,
N.A.

The settlement was entered in relation to the Debtors' claim
against the Bank; the Bank's claim against the Debtors and their
estates; and the Debtors' continued use of the Bank's cash
collateral to pay postpetition administrative expense claims.

The Debtors related that the Bank had agreed on the use of the
Bank's cash collateral through Feb. 17, 2011.  However, as of that
date, due to the substantial loss that the Bank realized it would
incur on its claim against the Debtors, the Bank objected to the
further use of its cash collateral despite the fact that the
Debtors had incurred but had not paid significant postpetition
administrative expenses that were not fully provided for under the
prior agreed cash collateral budgets.

The essential elements of the parties' settlement are:

   a) The Bank will provide the Debtors with (i) $250,000 from its
   cash collateral account, plus (ii) 25% of the "net preference
   proceeds," as a fund to pay Allowed Administrative Expense
   Claims on a pro rata basis; provided, however, the first
   $175,000 of net preference proceeds will be paid to the Bank
   without first deducting the estate's 25% share of such
   proceeds.

   b) The Bank will provide the Debtors with $25,000 from its cash
   collateral account to pay (i) the Debtors' attorneys fees
   relating to the filing and prosecution of the abandonment
   motion with respect to the Black Flag inventory, (ii) statutory
   fees due to the U.S. Trustee for the first quarter of 2011, and
   (iii) the cost of preparing W-2 forms for employees by the
   Debtors' payroll service.

   c) The Bank will pay to special counsel approved by the
   Bankruptcy Court in connection with investigating and/or
   pursuing the Insider Claims ("special counsel") the sum of
   $25,000 to be used by Special Counsel to investigate and
   determine the desirability of bringing the insider claims and
   any amount less than the $25,000 being used by special counsel
   will be returned directly to the Bank.  In the event any
   insider claim is prosecuted, the net proceeds, after (a)
   payment and/or reimbursement to special counsel of all fees and
   out of pocket costs and expenses not paid for by the Bank
   incurred by special counsel in investigating and/or pursuing
   the insider claims; followed by (b) reimbursement to the Bank
   of all funds advanced for expenses to investigate and prosecute
   the insider claims (including the original $25,000 paid to
   special counsel), will be divided between the Debtors' estates
   and the Bank in the ratio of 1/3 to the Debtors' estates and
   2/3 to the Bank.

   d) All amounts in the Debtors' bank account in excess of the
   $275,000 to be paid on account of items (a) and (b) above,
   approximately $1,125,000, will be set off by the Bank and
   applied to the Bank's prepetition claim.

   e) The Bank's section 507(b) claim will be limited to the
   amounts to be paid to the Bank pursuant to items (a), (b) and
   (c) above, including the Bank's share of the net proceeds of
   the preference and the Insider Claims.

   f) The Debtors will release their section 506(c) claim against
   the Bank and its collateral proceeds.

The Debtors and the Committee related that the settlement is in
the best interests of administrative expense claimants and other
creditors because:

   a) the settlement ensures that at least a portion of the
   Allowable Administrative Expense Claims will be paid, and there
   will be a process by which payment in full of such claims is
   possible, with funds left over to confirm a plan and satisfy
   section 503(b)(9) and other claims.

   b) the Committee will be able to complete its investigation of
   the  insider claims;5 and

   c) the Parties will avoid litigation over the disputed section
   506(c) and 507(b) claims.

The Court also ordered that the following claims, which include
all claims that were filed timely in accordance with the
administrative expense claim bar date, constitute allowable
administrative expense claims:

   Expense Category                    Amount
   ----------------                    ------
   Vacation Pay                       $295,000
   Professional Services               $64,575
   Holdback Amounts                    $68,095
   Helsel-Jepperson (electrical
   services)                              $978
   Admiral Products Inc.                $1,212
   Premier Delivery, Inc.               $1,623
                                      --------
   Total                              $431,484

BROOKLYN FEDERAL: Receives Deficiency Notice From NASDAQ
--------------------------------------------------------
Brooklyn Federal Bancorp, Inc. received a letter  from the Listing
Qualifications Department of the NASDAQ Stock Market LLC notifying
the Company that it no longer meets the NASDAQ Capital Market's
continued listing requirements under NASDAQ Listing Rule
5550(a)(2).  The Notification Letter states that the minimum bid
price of the Company's common stock has traded below $1.00 per
share for 30 consecutive business days and that the Company is
therefore not in compliance with the Bid Price Rule.

The Notification Letter has no effect at this time on the listing
of the Company's common stock on the NASDAQ Capital Market and the
Company's common stock will continue to trade on the NASDAQ
Capital Market under the symbol "BFSB."

The Notification Letter states that the Company will be afforded
180 calendar days, or until March 5, 2012, to regain compliance
with the Bid Price Rule.  To regain compliance, the closing bid
price of the Company's common stock must meet or exceed $1.00 per
share for at least ten consecutive business days.  If the Company
does not regain compliance by March 5, 2012, NASDAQ will provide
written notification to the Company that the Company's common
stock will be subject to delisting from the NASDAQ Capital Market.
The Company may, however, be eligible for an additional grace
period if certain conditions are met.  The Company may also appeal
NASDAQ's delisting determination to a NASDAQ Hearings Panel.

The Company intends to actively monitor the bid price of its
common stock and will consider available options to resolve the
deficiency and regain compliance with the NASDAQ requirements.
However, the Company is also a party to a definitive merger
agreement, under which the Company is expected to merge with
Investors Bancorp, Inc. in the fourth quarter of 2011, which is
expected to result in the cancellation of all of the Company's
outstanding common stock, thereby rendering the Bid Price Rule
deficiency moot.

Commenting on the quarter, Dr. Jeffrey A. Graves, president and
CEO said, "Our second quarter results were generally in line with
our expectations.  As we had indicated when releasing our first
quarter results, we expected to see revenues in our second quarter
rebound as our core markets in Asia continue to expand and as we
headed into the quarter with a stronger backlog for our European
business.  During the quarter we also made great strides on
driving down inventory levels, realizing an over $8 million
reduction as we continue to focus on improving our working capital
performance.  These efforts however, resulted in a negative
absorption impact on our bottom line as we adjusted our workforce
levels in North America to compensate for continued softness in
our Americas Flooded UPS markets."

                       About C&D Technologies

C&D Technologies, Inc., is a manufacturer, marketer and
distributor of electrical power storage systems for the standby
power storage market.  The Company makes lead acid batteries and
standby power systems that integrate lead acid batteries with
other electronic components, which are used to provide backup or
standby power for electrical equipment in the event of power loss
from the primary power source.

The Company reported a net loss of $55.55 million on
$354.83 million of net sales for the fiscal year ended Jan. 31,
2011, compared with a net loss of $25.78 million on
$335.71 million of net sales during the prior fiscal year.

C&D Technologies in December 2010 escaped a bankruptcy filing
after completing an out-of-court restructuring that reduced the
Company's total debt from approximately $175 million to
$50 million.  The Company in September had entered into a
restructuring support agreement with noteholders to a
restructuring that will be effected through (i) an offer to
exchange the Company's outstanding notes for up to 95% of the
Company's common stock, or (ii) a prepackaged plan of
reorganization under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code, if
the exchange offer fails to get the requisite support.  C&D
Technologies elected not to make a semi-annual interest
payment due on its 5.25% Convertible Senior Notes due 2025 on
Nov. 1, 2010.


CALUMET SPECIALTY: Moody's Affirms 'B2' Corporate Family Rating
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B3 rating to Calumet
Specialty Products Partners, L.P.'s (Calumet) proposed $200
million senior unsecured note offering maturing 2019. Moody's
changed Calumet's rating outlook to stable from positive. Moody's
also affirmed Calumet's B2 Corporate Family Rating (CFR), existing
B3 senior unsecured note rating and SGL-3 Speculative Grade
Liquidity Rating. The proposed offering will be used for partial
funding of Calumet's $475 million acquisition of Murphy Oil
Corporation's (Baa3 stable) Superior refinery assets and
inventory. Calumet is simultaneously offering approximately $200
million of common units in order to fund the Superior acquisition.

RATINGS RATIONALE

The move to stable from positive reflects the integration risk
associated with Calumet's acquisition of the Superior refinery
which is its largest acquisition to date, and the increased risk
profile from higher exposure to the volatile transportation fuels
business. The stable outlook assumes that the demand for specialty
products will remain strong while the Superior refinery will
benefit from access to cheap crude sources through 2012, resulting
in increased EBITDA. Calumet is expected to maintain leverage
comfortably under 4.0x while managing its working capital and
maintaining distributions at levels supported by internal
cashflow.

The B2 CFR reflects Calumet's niche position within the specialty
products industry and the degree of cashflow durability this
business provides relative to the traditional transportation fuels
business. As a leading independent niche producer of specialty
lubricants, solvents, and waxes, Calumet is capable of producing a
wide variety of specialty products that meets varying customer's
needs. Additionally, the specialty business lends itself to more
durable margins over time as the company has pushed through price
increases to keep pace with rising feedstock costs, though with a
four to six week lag. The rating also benefits from Calumet's
increased scale and geographic diversification following the
acquisition of the Superior medium complexity conventional
refinery and associated product terminals. The Superior refinery
offers significant geographic benefits, with access to both Bakken
and Canadian crudes. These onshore North American crudes are
currently trading at significant discounts compared to the water-
borne crudes, such as Brent. Moody's expects these differentials
will continue to remain supportive for inland refiners into 2012
resulting in better than expected refining margins for the
Superior refinery.

The rating is restrained by Calumet's corporate structure as a
master limited partnership (MLP) where Calumet must make sizeable
distributions to its unit holders. MLPs depend on reliable
earnings, since they must pay regular distributions to unit
holders. The rating is further constrained by Calumet's expansion
of its transportation fuels business, an inherently volatile
segment. The company is expected to modify some units in the
Superior refinery to assist its specialty product business but the
main units are expected to remain dedicated to the traditional
transportation fuels processing business.

Like other MLPs, Calumet relies on an acquisition-driven growth
strategy in order to pay out ever-higher distributions. The
Superior refinery acquisition does satisfy Calumet's growth
objectives in the near term, but increases the company's risk
profile by exposing it to a more volatile cashflow stream in the
longer term.

Calumet's ratings could be upgraded if management can successfully
integrate Superior within its specialty products operation and if
the company's expanded transportation fuels business proves to
post durable profitability in a lower refining margin environment,
while maintaining a sustainable leverage profile (debt/EBITDA
under 2.5x). A rating downgrade is a possibility should refining
margins negatively affect cash available to cover operating
expenses and debt service, there are protracted refinery outages
or supply disruptions, or Calumet adopts a more aggressive
distribution policy.

The SGL-3 rating reflects the expectation that Calumet will have
sufficient liquidity through Q3', 2012 to meet its minimal capital
spending requirements, interest expense, working capital needs,
and MLP common unit distributions.

The B3 senior unsecured notes rating reflects both the overall
probability of default of Calumet, to which Moody's assigns a PDR
of B2, and a loss given default of LGD4 - 54%. The proposed senior
notes are unsecured and guaranteed by all subsidiaries on a senior
unsecured basis. The $850 million committed asset backed revolving
credit facility is expected to have an initial borrowing base of
approximately $575 million. The size of the credit facility's
potential priority claim in comparison to the senior notes results
in the notes being rated one notch beneath Calumet's B2 CFR, in
accordance with Moody's Loss Given Default Methodology.

The principal methodology used in this rating was Moody's Global
Independent Refining and Marketing rating methodology published in
December 2009. Please see the Credit Policy page on www.moodys.com
for a copy of this methodology.

Calumet Specialty Products Partners, L.P. is headquartered in
Indianapolis, Indiana.


CALUMET SPECIALTY: S&P Rates $200-Mil. Sr. Unsecured Notes at 'B'
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'B' senior
unsecured debt rating on Calumet Specialty Products Partners,
L.P.'s proposed $200 million senior unsecured notes due 2019. The
recovery rating on the notes is '4', indicating our expectation
for average recovery (30% to 50%) in the event of a payment
default. "At the same time, we revised the recovery rating on the
company's existing senior unsecured notes to '4', indicating our
expectation for average recovery (30% to 50%) in the event of a
payment default, from '3'. Calumet has also launched a concurrent
offering of 11 million common units," S&P stated.

Proceeds from the unsecured note and common unit offerings will be
used to help fund the approximately $475 million acquisition of
Murphy Oil Corp.'s Superior, Wis. refinery. Pro forma for the
Superior acquisition, Calumet will have up to 135,000 barrels per
day of processing capacity, dependent on feedstock and utilization
levels. Adjusted debt leverage should range between 3.5x to 3.0x
in 2012, and liquidity should remain adequate pro forma for the
transactions.

                        The Committee Objects

The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors in the Debtor's case
asked that the Court deny the confirmation of the Debtor's Plan,
amended as of Aug. 12, explaining that the Plan does not contain
adequate information such that a creditor can make an informed
decision as to whether to vote for or against the Plan.
Furthermore, the Committee stated that the Plan in its present
state is not confirmable.

The Committee related that the proposed Plan involves a pre-
arranged sale of the going concern Reorganized Debtor free and
clear of the Debtor's liabilities to the exit funder in exchange
for which the exit funder agreed to provide working capital to the
Reorganized Debtor in the amount of $2,000,000 (less 40% of any
excess Effective Date proceeds which will be paid to the exit
funder).  The exit funder will also purchase $955,988 shareholder
not for a mere $25,000.

Previously, the Committee requested that it be authorized to
conduct an expedited discovery in connection with the contested
matter associated with its objection to Disclosure Statement and
the confirmation of the Amended Plan of Reorganization.

COMSTOCK MINING: Has 2nd Phase Drill Results on Dayton Area
-----------------------------------------------------------
Comstock Mining Inc. announced the second-phase drilling results
at its Dayton Resource Area.  The drilling program included 20
Reverse Circulation holes, totaling 8,170 feet and two core holes
totaling 1,106 feet.  Significant mineralization was encountered
in all 22 holes, including continuously mineralized intervals of
greater than 100 feet in eight of those holes.

Phase I results were announced in March 2011.  That initial phase
was designed as a series of three east-west "drill fences," spaced
approximately 600 feet apart, with the goal of testing the
mineralization at greater depths than the previous, mostly shallow
drilling, and of validating the geological model for the area.
Phase I encountered significant mineralization in 41 of the 42
holes in the program.  Results announced previously by the Company
included the highest-grade interval encountered to-date at the
Dayton: 10 feet (3.05 m) grading 1.121 ounces per ton of gold
(38.39 g/tonne) and 2.279 ounces per ton of silver (78.05
g/tonne), contained in an interval of 135 feet (41.15 m) grading
0.218 ounces per ton of gold (7.47 g/tonne) and 0.685 ounces per
ton of silver (23.46 g/tonne).  Those results also included
continuously mineralized intervals of greater than 100 feet in 13
of the 42 holes.

The Dayton Phase II drilling program follows the success of the
first phase by drilling holes on intermediate sections that were
spaced approximately 200 feet apart.  The positive results provide
additional confirmation of the geological model and expand
significantly the Company's understanding of the mineralized zone.

"We are excited by the extended continuity of the mineralization
with 21 different holes showing greater than 100 feet," stated Mr.
Corrado De Gasperis, President and CEO of Comstock Mining Inc.
"We are incorporating these results into our next technical report
and expect a material increase in our Dayton mineral resources.
It is our strong belief that the Dayton has sufficient
mineralization, metallurgical character and economic profile for
development as our second mine, independent and distinct from our
activities in the Lucerne Area."

                       About Comstock Mining

Virginia City, Nev.-based Comstock Mining Inc. is a Nevada-based,
gold and silver mining company with extensive, contiguous property
in the historic Comstock district.  The Company began acquiring
properties in the Comstock in 2003.  Since then, the Company has
consolidated a substantial portion of the Comstock district,
secured permits, built an infrastructure and brought the
exploration project into test mining production.  The Company
continues acquiring additional properties in the Comstock
district, expanding its footprint and creating opportunities for
exploration and mining.  The goal of the Company's strategic plan
is to deliver stockholder value by validating qualified resources
(measured and indicated) and reserves (probable and proven) of
3,250,000 gold equivalent ounces by 2013, and commencing
commercial mining and processing operations by 2011, with annual
production rates of 20,000 gold equivalent ounces.

The Company reported a net loss of $60.32 million for the year
ended Dec. 31, 2010, compared with a net loss of $6.06 million
during the prior year.  The Company had no revenues from
operations for the years ended Dec. 31, 2010 and 2009.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2011, showed
$29.85 million in total assets, $11.33 million in total
liabilities, and $18.51 million in total stockholders' equity.


CORTEX PHARMA: Posts $356,100 Net Loss in 2nd Quarter
-----------------------------------------------------
Cortex Pharmaceuticals, Inc., filed its quarterly report on Form
10-Q, reporting a net loss of $356,168 on $1.09 million of revenue
for the three months ended June 30, 2011, compared with a net loss
of $2.45 million on $0 revenue for the same period last year.

The Company reported a net loss of $1.91 million on $1.11 million
of revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2011, compared with
net income of $3.14 million on $9.00 million of revenues for the
same period of 2010.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2011, showed $1.77 million
in total assets, $1.24 million in total liabilities, and
stockholders' equity of $533,906.

As reported in the TCR on March 24, 2011, Haskell & White LLP, in
Irvine, California, expressed substantial doubt about Cortex
Pharmaceuticals' ability to continue as a going concern, following
the Company's 2010 results.  The independent auditors noted that
the Company does not currently possess sufficient working capital
to fund its operations through the next fiscal year.

DECISION INSIGHT: S&P Affirms 'B' Long-Term Corp. Credit Rating
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its outlook on Decision
Insight Information Group (U.S.) I Inc. (DIIG) to negative from
stable. At the same time, Standard & Poor's affirmed its 'B' long-
term corporate credit rating on the company and its 'B+' issue-
level rating on DIIG's $400 million senior secured facilities. The
'2' recovery rating on the facilities is unchanged.

In early 2011, certain operating companies finalized legal name
changes to rebrand under the Decision Insight Information Group
name. Accordingly, the name of the borrower under the credit
agreement was legally changed to Decision Insight Information
Group (U.S.) I Inc. from Property Data (U.S.) I Inc.

"The outlook revision reflects lower volumes at DIIG's
transaction-driven North American and U.K. financial services
businesses and increased competitive pressures in the claims side
of the key U.S. Property Insurance segment, which have caused
first-half operating results to be below our expectations," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Madhav Hari.

Specifically, normalized revenue and EBITDA for the six months
ended June 30, 2011, have decreased 12% and about 10% from the
previous year period. "Given difficult market conditions, we are
concerned that DIIG's EBITDA growth could be pressured in the near
term, which could lead to sustained Standard & Poor's adjusted
leverage above our 7x target for the ratings and potentially
constrained liquidity as covenants step down through 2012," S&P
stated.

The ratings on U.S.-based property data information provider DIIG
reflect what Standard & Poor's views as the company's highly
leveraged financial risk profile characterized by run-rate
Standard & Poor's adjusted debt to EBITDA in excess of 7x, weak
cash flow protection measures, and an aggressive financial
policy given the company's leveraged capital structure and
financial sponsor ownership. The ratings also reflect Standard &
Poor's assessment of a weak business risk profile owing to the
company's relatively small scale, moderate diversity, and weak
revenue performance in the past two years and in recent quarters.

"The negative outlook reflects our concern that the weak operating
results experienced during the first half of the year could
persist in the second half. Increasing competitive pressures and
weak macroeconomic trends have diminished DIIG's ability to absorb
further operational missteps, competitive losses, or lower demand.
Moreover, we believe covenant headroom will tighten significantly
in 2012 if EBITDA generation does not improve in the near term.
We could downgrade DIIG if EBITDA fails to sequentially improve in
the next couple of quarters as this would heighten the possibility
of covenant breaches while causing Standard & Poor's adjusted
leverage to exceed 7x. Given difficult market conditions and
DIIG's potential time to deleverage, an upgrade is not likely,"
S&P stated.


DIGITAL REALTY: S&P Rates $250-Mil. Preferred Stock at 'BB+'
------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'BB+' issue rating
to Digital Realty Trust Inc.'s $250 million cumulative redeemable
preferred stock series E. The company plans to use the net
proceeds from the offering to temporarily repay borrowings under
its revolving credit facility, to acquire additional properties,
to fund development and redevelopment opportunities, and for
general corporate purposes, such as for the repurchase, redemption
or retirement of outstanding debt and/or preferred equity
securities. As of June 30, 2011, Digital's revolving credit
facility had a total outstanding balance of $341.4 million,
excluding committed letters of credit of $30.5 million, leaving
approximately $378.0 million available for use. Effective Aug. 31,
2011, the company exercised the second and final one-year
extension option, which extended its maturity date to Aug. 31,
2012, from Aug. 31, 2011.

"Our ratings on Digital Realty Trust Inc. and Digital Realty Trust
L.P. (collectively, Digital) acknowledge the company's
satisfactory business profile, given its good competitive position
as a multimarket datacenter provider, as well as a financial
profile that we currently consider intermediate based on moderate
leverage, strong debt coverage measures, and management's
willingness to date to issue equity to finance leverage-neutral
growth," S&P related.

"Our stable outlook reflects Digital Realty's well-occupied
portfolio, very manageable lease expirations, contractual rent
increases, and currently favorable mark-to-market rent profile.
Management's demonstrated leverage-neutral growth to date supports
our expectations that the company will maintain its current
leverage and coverage metrics. Given management's growth appetite,
we are unlikely to raise the ratings in the near term. However,
longer term, we would consider an upgrade if the company
profitably executes its geographic expansion, development, and
redevelopment pursuits while sustaining a high-2x fixed-charge
coverage amid a less-steep asset growth trajectory. We would lower
the rating if fixed-charge coverage falls materially below the
2.4x contemplated in our stress scenario and total coverage drops
below 1.1x, which we consider unlikely," S&P related.

EAGLE CROSSROADS: Seeks to Use Rents to Fund Chapter 11
-------------------------------------------------------
Eagle Crossroads Center, LLC, seeks authority to use cash
collateral, consisting of cash on hand, depository accounts and
rents, which secures its obligations to Bank of America, to pay
costs of administration and to operate the Debtor's business
during the pendency of the Chapter 11 case.

The Debtor entered into a $52 million loan transaction with Morgan
Stanley Mortgage Capital Holdings, LLC, in November 2007.  The
loan was transferred to Bank of America, N.A., as Trustee for
Morgan Stanley Capital I Inc., Commercial Mortgage Pass-Through
Certificates, Series 2007-HQ13, in June 2009.  The loan was
secured by, among other property, the Debtor's shopping center
property, as well as fixtures, rents, and various forms of
personal property.

The Debtor has not made its monthly payments due under the loan
since Dec. 5, 2010.  Since then, however, the Debtor has attempted
to negotiate with BofA in an effort to be allowed to receive its
Rents so the Debtor can pay its operating expenses.  The Debtor
has additionally attempted negotiations to restructure its debt
with BofA.  However, such efforts have not been successful.

BofA has sought the appointment of a receiver for the property,
forcing the Debtor to seek bankruptcy protection.

The Debtor said BofA is not entitled to adequate protection
payments for the use of Collateral.  The Debtor has ordered an
appraisal of the Property to establish its value, and the
appraisal should be available shortly.  However, assuming that the
value of the Collateral is less than the Loan amount due to BofA,
and thus BofA is an undersecured creditor, the Debtor argued the
Collateral is not depreciating in value as evidenced by the fact
that as of the Petition Date, the Debtor's revenues exceeded its
operating expenses before debt service and are projected to do so
on a post-petition basis.  Additionally, for the 12-month period
commencing on the Petition Date and concluding on Aug. 31, 2012,
the Debtor has proposed a budget that anticipates increasing the
Debtor's cash balance from approximately $210,000 to in excess of
$3,000,000 while being able to pay all operating expenses on a
current basis.  The Debtor also has not paid its operating
expenses on a current basis since June 2011, despite its ability
to otherwise do so, because BofA has been depositing and holding
all of the Debtor's Rents in a lockbox account.

Without the authority to use Cash Collateral, the Debtor said it
be forced to cease operations, thereby eliminating its ability to
reorganize.

EDGEN MURRAY: Extends Maturity of JPMorgan Facility to May 2014
---------------------------------------------------------------
Edgen Murray II, LP, and its subsidiaries, Edgen Murray
Corporation, Edgen Murray Europe Limited, Edgen Murray Canada
Inc., Edgen Murray Pte. Ltd. and the other Loan Parties party
thereto, entered into a sixth amendment to the Company's senior
secured revolving credit facility with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A.,
JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., Toronto Branch, J.P. Morgan Europe
Limited, The HongKong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited and
the Lenders party thereto to extend the maturity date of the ABL
Facility from May 11, 2012, to May 11, 2014, and to increase the
aggregate amount available under the ABL Facility from $175
million to $195 million (subject to an increase by the Company of
up to $25 million for a total of $220 million) of which:

   * EMC may utilize up to $180 million ($25 million of which can
     only be used for letters of credit) less any amounts utilized
     under the sublimits of EM Canada and EM Europe;

   * EM Europe may utilize up to $60 million;

   * EM Canada may utilize up to $10 million; and

   * EM Pte may utilize up to $10 million, which increases
     automatically to $15 million upon the fulfillment by EM Pte
     of certain conditions precedent.

The financial, affirmative and negative covenants of the ABL
Facility remain largely unchanged with the exception that, under
the amended ABL Facility, to avoid having to comply with the
minimum fixed charge coverage ratio of 1.25 to 1.00, the Company
must maintain aggregate borrowing availability of greater than or
equal to $27 million, and borrowing availability of EMC and EM
Canada of greater than or equal to $16.5 million.  If borrowing
availability falls below these thresholds, the Company will be
required to comply with the fixed charge coverage ratio until the
date that both aggregate borrowing availability is greater than
$32 million and the borrowing availability of EMC and EM Canada is
greater than $21.5 million for a consecutive ninety day period,
and no default or event of default exists or has existed during
the period.

There is no material relationship between Edgen Murray II, L.P.,
or any of its affiliates and any of the parties to the Sixth
Amendment, other than in respect of the Sixth Amendment and the
ABL Facility. Certain of such parties or their affiliates have in
the past performed, and may in the future from time to time
perform, investment banking, financial advisory, lending or
commercial banking or trustee services for Edgen Murray II, L.P.
and its affiliates, for which they have received, and may in the
future receive, customary compensation and reimbursement of
expenses.

                           *     *     *

As reported by the TCR on April 11, 2011, Moody's Investors
Service lowered Edgen Murray II, L.P.'s probability of default
rating (PDR) to Caa2 from Caa1, its corporate family rating (CFR)
to Caa3 from Caa1 and the company's 12.25% senior secured notes to
Caa3 from Caa2.  The downgrade was prompted by Edgen Murray's
continuing weak performance even as many of its peers began to
benefit in 2010 from higher oil prices, a higher rig count for oil
drilling, and increased drilling in and production from
alternative shale plays.

In September 2010, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it
lowered its corporate credit rating on Edgen Murray II L.P. to 'B-
' from 'B'.  The rating outlook is stable.

"The downgrade reflects S&P's expectation that 2010 EBITDA will
likely be around $30 million, materially lower than its previous
expectation of about $55 million, due to ongoing weakness in the
company's Western Hemisphere segment as a result of lower capital
spending on projects in the region," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Sherwin Brandford.

FIRST NATIONAL: Can Use Capmark's Cash Collateral Until Sept. 30
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Niles Jackson of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Western District of Oklahoma approved a stipulation between
debtors First National Building II, LLC and First National
Building I, LLC, on one hand, and Capmark Bank and Capmark CDF
Subfund VI LLC, on the other, authorizing the Debtors to use the
cash collateral until Sept. 30, 2011.

The Debtors would use the rent revenue generated from the lease
space in the property to maintain the property and pay operating
expenses relating to the property.

The Debtors noted that pursuant to the petition for foreclosure,
the lender alleged that the loan had matured, asserted a claim
against the Debtors in an amount exceeding $20 million, and sought
to foreclose the property.

Previously, the lender filed a limited objection to Debtors'
motion for continued use of cash collateral.  Capmark objected
that the Debtors intend to pay Milbank Real Estate Services, Inc.,
a management fee of 3% of all gross revenues collected from the
property monthly and to the extent the Debtors seek to increase
their budget variance to 10%.

Milbank acts as the Debtors' exclusive managing agent for the
property -- the real property commonly known as the First National
Center and located at 120 N. Robinson Avenue in Oklahoma City.

The lender stated that $14,616 figure in the budget is essentially
3% of all gross revenues collected from the property, a percentage
that is 1.5% higher than the fee Capmark agreed Milbank could pay
itself for its management services.

To resolve the concerns, the parties entered into a stipulation
which provides that, among other things:

   -- The lender has consented to the use of the cash collateral
   and to deviate from the line items contained in the budget by
   not more than 5% on both line item and aggregated basis, with
   an unused portion from a week to be carried over into the
   following week.

   -- The Debtors are further authorized to use the cash
   collateral to pay all quarterly fees owing to the Office of the
   U.S. Trustee and all expenses owing to the Clerk of the
   Bankruptcy Court.

   -- The Debtors are authorized to pay Milbank a management fee
   equal to 3% of all gross revenues collected from the property
   during the month, provided that the Debtor have provided the
   lender with the information regarding certain prepetition
   insider payments that was requested by counsel for the lender.
   If the Debtors have not provided the lender with the requested
   insider payment information by Sept. 1, the Debtors will pay
   Milbank a management fee equal to a temporary reduced rate of
   1.5% of all gross revenues collected from the property.

The Debtors added that given that the lender is an oversecured
creditor protected by a significant equity cushion (of
approximately 33%) and the Debtors' continued operation of the
property, the Debtors submit that the lender will remain
adequately protected despite the Debtors' use of cash collateral.

FIRST NATIONAL: Closed; CharterBank Assumes All Deposits
--------------------------------------------------------
The First National Bank of Florida of Milton, Fla., was closed on
Friday, Sept. 9, 2011, by the Office of the Comptroller of the
Currency, which appointed the Federal Deposit Insurance
Corporation as receiver.  To protect the depositors, the FDIC
entered into a purchase and assumption agreement with CharterBank
of West Point, Ga., to assume all of the deposits of The First
National Bank of Florida.

The eight branches of The First National Bank of Florida will
reopen during their normal business hours as branches of
CharterBank.  Depositors of The First National Bank of Florida
will automatically become depositors of CharterBank.  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 First National Bank of Florida should continue to
use their existing branch until they receive notice from
CharterBank that it has completed systems changes to allow other
CharterBank branches to process their accounts as well.

As of June 30, 2011, The First National Bank of Florida had around
$296.8 million in total assets and $280.1 million in total
deposits.  In addition to assuming all of the deposits of the
failed bank, CharterBank agreed to purchase essentially all of the
assets.

The FDIC and CharterBank entered into a loss-share transaction on
$216.3 million of The First National Bank of Florida's assets.
CharterBank will share in the losses on the asset pools covered
under the loss-share agreement.  The loss-share transaction is
projected to maximize returns on the assets covered by keeping
them in the private sector.  The transaction also is expected to
minimize disruptions for loan customers.  For more information on
loss share, please visit:

http://www.fdic.gov/bank/individual/failed/lossshare/index.html

Customers with questions about today's transaction should call the
FDIC toll-free at 1-800-355-0650.  Interested parties also can
visit the FDIC's Web site at

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

The FDIC estimates that the cost to the Deposit Insurance Fund
will be $46.9 million.  Compared to other alternatives,
CharterBank's acquisition was the least costly resolution for the
FDIC's DIF.  The First National Bank of Florida is the 71st FDIC-
insured institution to fail in the nation this year, and the
eleventh in Florida.  The last FDIC-insured institution closed in
the state was Lydian Private Bank, Palm Beach, on Aug. 19, 2011.

Moody's Investors Service assigned a first time B2 Corporate
Family and Probability of Default Ratings to GRD Holding III
Corporation, the parent company of Garden Ridge Corporation. At
the same time Moody's also assigned a B2 (LGD 3, 46%) rating to
the company's proposed senior secured term loan B due 2017. The
rating outlook is stable. The ratings assigned are subject to
receipt and review of final documentation.

RATINGS RATIONALE

The B2 Corporate Family Rating assigned to Garden Ridge reflects
the company's highly leveraged capital structure following the
debt-financed acquisition of controlling interest by AEA Investors
LP from Garden Holdings LLC, an affiliate of Three Cities
Research, Inc. Moody's anticipates Moody's Adjusted pro-forma
debt/EBITDA around 5.5 times and Moody's Adjusted interest
coverage (EBITA/interest expense) of 1.9 times. The rating also
takes into consideration the company's small size with 4/30/11 LTM
revenues of $338 million and 50 stores primarily located in the
Southern and Midwest US. Moody's believes recent declines in same
store revenues are a result of a shift in product mix to higher
margin offerings and reduced reliance on low-margin promotional
activities which are now largely behind the company. While
revenues have fallen, the company's EBITDA margins have expanded
significantly; achieving best in class levels compared to peers
while overall EBITDA has more than doubled in the past three years
as a result of a favorable shift in merchandise and improved cost
controls. The ratings take into consideration the breadth of the
company's product offering in the home decor category which is a
key part of its strategy.

The stable rating outlook reflects Moody's expectations the
company will maintain high operating margins (though growth
oriented investments may result in some moderation of recent
levels) and that it will prudently manage the expansion of its
store base over the near to intermediate term. The company is
expected to only modestly deleverage as the company increases its
investment in new store openings.

In view of the company's modest size the ratings are unlikely to
be upgraded in the near term. Over time, ratings could be upgraded
if debt/EBITDA is sustained below 4.5 times and interest coverage
is sustained above 2.25 times while also maintaining balanced
financial policies and generating greater scale.

Ratings could be downgraded if the company's recent positive
trends in operating margins begin to reverse, same store sales
show declines, or if the company exhibits inconsistent performance
of new store openings. Quantitatively ratings could be downgraded
if debt/EBITDA is sustained above 6.0 times or interest coverage
falls below 1.5 times.

These ratings were assigned:

Corporate Family Rating at B2

Probability of Default Rating at B2

$250 million senior secured term loan B due 2017 at B2 (LGD 3,
46%)

The principal methodology used in rating Garden Ridge Corporation
was the Global Retail Industry Methodology 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.

Headquartered in Houston Texas, Garden Ridge Corporation is a big
box retailer of home decor products, operating 50 stores
throughout the South and Midwest as of July 21, 2011. Revenues for
the LTM period ending April 30, 2011 were $338 million.

Greenwood Village, Colo., expressed substantial doubt about
Graymark Healthcare's ability to continue as a going concern,
following the Company's 2010 results.  The independent auditors

GREAT ATLANTIC: Robbins Geller Files Securities Class Action Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LL disclosed that a class action has
been commenced in the United States District Court for the
District of New Jersey on behalf of purchasers of the securities
of The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company, Inc. ("A&P") during
the period between July 23, 2009 and December 10, 2010 (the "Class
Period").  A&P is not named in this action as a defendant because
it filed for bankruptcy protection in December 2010.

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no
later than 60 days from Sept. 9.  If you wish to discuss this
action or have any questions concerning this notice or your rights
or interests, please contact plaintiff's counsel, Samuel H. Rudman
or David A. Rosenfeld of Robbins Geller at 800/449-4900 or
619/231-1058, or via e-mail at djr@rgrdlaw.com.  If you are a
member of this class, you can view a copy of the complaint as
filed or join this class action online at
http://www.rgrdlaw.com/cases/aandp/  Any member of the putative
class may move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff through
counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an
absent class member.

The complaint charges certain of A&P's former and current
executives with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
A&P was founded in 1859 and currently operates conventional
supermarkets, combination food and drug stores, and discount food
stores.

The complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period,
defendants failed to disclose material adverse facts about the
Company's true financial condition, business and prospects.
Specifically, the complaint alleges that defendants failed to
disclose the following adverse facts, among others: (i) that A&P
was facing increased low-cost competition from retailers such as
Wal-Mart and Target Corp., which was negatively impacting the
Company's business and financial condition; (ii) that the Pathmark
acquisition was a complete disaster for the Company as Pathmark's
operations were in far worse condition than had been represented
to investors; (iii) that A&P was not operating according to
internal expectations and could not achieve the guidance sponsored
and/or endorsed by defendants; and (iv) that, as a result of the
foregoing, defendants lacked a reasonable basis for their positive
statements about the Company, its operations and prospects.

On July 23, 2010, A&P issued a press release announcing its fiscal
2010 first quarter results and that the Company had launched a
"turnaround," designed to strengthen A&P's operating and financial
foundation. On August 13, 2010, A&P announced the closing of
certain stores as part of the Company's operational and revenue-
driven turnaround initiative, the purported Turnaround Strategy,
designed to generate sustained profitability and cash flow, drive
sales growth, restore competitive margins to the business and
strengthen the foundation of the Company for the long term.  Then
on December 10, 2010, A&P shocked investors after revealing, for
the first time, that the Company was performing so far below
expectations and the purported Turnaround Strategy was failing so
miserably that the Company would likely be forced to file for
bankruptcy protection. In response to this announcement, the price
of A&P securities declined precipitously.

Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of all purchasers of
A&P securities during the Class Period (the "Class").  The
plaintiff is represented by Robbins Geller, which has expertise in
prosecuting investor class actions and extensive experience in
actions involving financial fraud.

Robbins Geller, a 180-lawyer firm with offices in San Diego, San
Francisco, New York, Boca Raton, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia
and Atlanta, is active in major litigations pending in federal and
state courts throughout the United States and has taken a leading
role in many important actions on behalf of defrauded investors,
consumers, and companies, as well as victims of human rights
violations.  The Robbins Geller Web site --

Exchange Commission its annual report on Form 10-K reporting a net
loss of $12.20 million on $7.50 million of net sales for the year

in total assets, $7.70 million in total liabilities, all current,
and a $1.64 million total stockholders' deficit.

Friedman LLP, in East Hanover, New Jersey, noted that the
Company's losses, negative cash flows from operations, working
capital deficit and its ability to pay its outstanding liabilities
through fiscal 2012 raise substantial doubt about its ability to
continue as a going concern.

GREEN MOUNTAIN: Moody's Says Unit Sale to Lift Liquidity Profile
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service commented that the announced sale by
Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. of its U.S. coffee services
unit will further support its liquidity profile by lifting
liquidity sources to nearly $1 billion. On August 24, 2011 GMCR
announced the sale of all outstanding shares of Van Houtte USA
Holdings, Inc. to ARAMARK Refreshment Services LLC for $145
million. The proceeds will provide liquidity incremental to $825
million of availability under the company's $1 billion revolving
credit facility as of June 26, 2011.

GMCR's Ba3 Corporate Family Rating reflects the expanding base and
growing consumer demand for its category-leading Keurig single-cup
brewers, which in turn drive sales of its high-margin K-Cup
portion packs. The rating also reflects the company's aggressive
growth strategy that has involved the rapid consolidation of K-Cup
licensees in recent years and the formation of key strategic
partnerships that will spur more demand for Keurig brewers and K-
Cups. Heavy working capital needs and plant expansion required to
keep up with the company's rapid growth has resulted in negative
free cash flows that Moody's expects to persist for the
foreseeable future. However, the $843 million of cash raised
through equity sales and the pending divestiture provides
important financial cushion.

The principal methodology used in this rating was the Global
Packaged Goods published in July 2009.

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. based in Waterbury, Vermont,
is a manufacturer of specialty coffee and other hot beverages, and
single serve coffee brewing systems. The company's operations are
managed through three business units: The Specialty Coffee unit
produces coffee, tea and hot cocoa from its family of brands,
including Tully's Coffee(R), Green Mountain Coffee(R), Newman's
Own(R) Organics coffee, Timothy's World Coffee(R), Diedrich(R),
and Van Houtte(R); the Keurig unit manufactures gourmet single-cup
brewing systems and GMCR produces the K-Cup(R) portion packs for
Keurig(R) Single-Cup Brewers; and the Canadian unit produces,
markets and sells Van Houtte(R) and the company's other brands in
K-Cup(R) portion packs and other packaging formats and is
responsible for the Company's integrated marketing efforts in
Canada. Sales for the last-twelve months ended June 25, 2011
totaled $2.3 billion.


GULF OFFSHORE: S&P Withdraws 'CCC+' Corporate Credit Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services withdrew its preliminary 'CCC+'
corporate credit rating on Gulf Offshore Logistics Holdings LLC.

"We also withdrew the preliminary 'B-' issue rating and
preliminary '2' recovery rating on Gulf Offshore's previously
proposed $75 million secured floating-rate notes, as well as the
preliminary 'CCC-' issue rating and preliminary '6' recovery
rating on its previously proposed $35 million secured term B
notes. The company did not complete the financing that was the
basis for our assignment of preliminary ratings on May 27, 2011,"
S&P related.

"The rating actions are a result of the nonfinalization of Gulf
Offshore's proposed $75 million secured floating-rate note and $35
million term B note offering announced in May 2011," said Standard
& Poor's credit analyst Paul Harvey.


HOMBURG INVEST: To Restructure Under CCAA
-----------------------------------------
Homburg Invest Inc. disclosed that it and certain of its
subsidiaries applied to the Court for protection under the
Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act.

Deloitte & Touche LLP is the proposed Court-appointed monitor that
will oversee the proceeding under the CCAA.  Deloitte & Touche
will periodically post the applications to the Court as well as
the orders issued by the Court on its website.


HII is hopeful that the appointment of the Monitor will address
the primary concerns of the Netherlands Authority for the
Financial Markets.  In addition to the duties and obligations of
the Monitor as prescribed by law, HII has requested that the
Monitor be afforded certain additional powers that will facilitate
its ability to cooperate fully with the AFM, including the right
of the Monitor to communicate directly with the AFM with regard to
any matters concerning the HII group of companies.

"The purpose of the application is to allow us to restructure our
activities in an orderly fashion in the best long-term interests
of the Company and all of its stakeholders," said Hartmut Fromm,
Chairman of the Board of HII.  "The CCAA application enables the
Board of Directors and Management to take measures to enhance the
balance sheet of the Company."

The CCAA is a Canadian federal law allowing insolvent companies
that owe their creditors in excess of $5 million to restructure
their business and financial affairs.  CCAA is not bankruptcy. The
main purpose of the CCAA is to enable financially distressed
companies to avoid bankruptcy or foreclosure or seizure of assets
while maximizing returns for their creditors and preserving both
jobs and the company's value as a functioning business. CCAA
proceedings are carried out under the supervision of the Court.

The Company's CCAA filing does not affect Homburg Canada Real
Estate Investment Trust, which is an independent entity and
distinct from the Company and its subsidiaries.

HOVNANIAN ENTERPRISES: Incurs $50.9MM Net Loss in July 31 Quarter
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Hovnanian Enterprises, Inc., reported a net loss of $50.93 million
on $285.61 million of total revenues for the three months ended
July 31, 2011, compared with a net loss of $72.85 million on
$380.60 million of total revenues for the same period during the
prior year.

The Company also reported a net loss of $187.74 million on $793.28
million of total revenues for the nine months ended July 31, 2011,
compared with net income of $134.70 million on $1.01 billion of
total revenues for the same period a year ago.

The Company's balance sheet at July 31, 2011, showed $1.69 billion
in total assets, $2.09 billion in total liabilities, and a
$399.35 million total deficit.

"The housing market remains challenging primarily due to
uncertainty caused by general domestic economic and political
concerns, stock market volatility and turbulent international
economic conditions, all of which are taking their toll on
consumer confidence," commented Ara K. Hovnanian, chairman of the
Board, president and chief executive officer.  "Despite this
difficult backdrop, our deliveries, revenues, gross margin and
cash flow for the third quarter were in line with our
expectations.  However, we see very few indicators that any
recovery in the housing market has begun.  As such, we are taking
appropriate steps to run our business based on current market
conditions, with a focus on maintaining adequate liquidity."

                           *     *     *

As reported by the TCR on April 25, 2011, Fitch Ratings has
affirmed Hovnanian Enterprises, Inc.'s Issuer Default Rating (IDR)
at 'CCC'.  The rating for HOV is influenced by the Company's
execution of its business model, land policies and geographic,
price point and product line diversity.  The rating also reflects
the company's liquidity position, substantial debt and high
leverage.

As reported by the TCR on July 5, 2011, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services lowered its corporate credit ratings on Hovnanian
Enterprises Inc. and its K. Hovnanian Enterprises Inc. subsidiary
to 'CCC' from 'CCC+'.

"The downgrade was driven by Hovnanian's declining cash position
as the company invests in land and new communities as a way to
bolster gross profits," said credit analyst George Skoufis. "We
also believe the housing recovery will be weaker and more
protracted than we previously expected. As a result, the company
will be challenged to ultimately address its highly leveraged
balance sheet if it does not begin to improve profitability."

under the facility.  The bank loan matures on April 1, 2017, and

ICE TREATS: Landlords Violated Automatic Stay in Ending Lease
-------------------------------------------------------------
Before Ice Treats One, Inc., Ice Treats Two, Inc., and Ice Treats
Three, Inc., commenced their bankruptcy cases, their landlords
commenced eviction proceedings against them and had them evicted
from their leased premises.  After the evictions, the Debtors'
water ice operations were taken over by businesses who began
operating the water ice stores under the name of Rocco's Italian
Ice.

After filing for Chapter 11 protection, the Debtors filed the
Motion seeking, inter alia: (i) to have the Landlords and Business
Operators held in contempt for violating the automatic stay; (ii)
an order restoring possession to the Debtors of their leaseholds,
equipment and inventory; (iii) permission to assume their non-
residential real property leases under 11 U.S.C. Sec. 365; and
(iv) an award of damages against the Landlords and Business
Operators pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Sec. 362(k)(1).

In a Sept. 8, 2011 Opinion, Bankruptcy Judge Jean K. Fitzsimon
held that the lease was not effectively or properly terminated
pre-petition.  Therefore, the Landlords and Business Operators
violated the automatic stay by exercising control of the Premises
after the Debtors filed their bankruptcy cases.  Furthermore, the
Debtors have the right under Sec. 365 to assume the Lease provided
they satisfy the conditions for doing so.  A copy of the Court's
decision is available at http://is.gd/QgB5uTfrom Leagle.com.

The landlord of Ice Treats One and Ice Treats Two is Reyes Real
Estate Corp.; the landlord of Ice Treats Four is Reyes Rockland
Street Properties, LLC.

The Business Operators are: (i) Rocco's Italian Ice -
Feltonviille; (ii) Rocco's Italian Ice - Lawncrest, LLC; and (iii)
Rocco's Italian Ice - Nicetown, LLC.  The "principal" of the
Landlords is the husband of the principal of the Rocco's entities.

The Landlords and the Business Operators have filed a notice of
appeal from the Order.

INC RESEARCH: S&P Assigns 'B' Corporate Credit Rating
-----------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'B' corporate
credit rating to Raleigh, N.C.-based INC Research LLC. The outlook
is stable.

"At the same time, we assigned a 'B+' senior secured debt rating
and a '2' recovery rating to INC's $425 million senior secured
debt facility. We also assigned a 'B-' senior unsecured rating and
a '5' recovery rating to the $250 million senior unsecured notes,"
S&P related.

"The speculative-grade ratings on INC reflect the company's weak
business risk profile, given the volatile demand in the contract-
based business, the company's need to continue to successfully
compete against larger and better financed CROs, and the need to
quickly and effectively integrate the operations of Kendle," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Michael Berrien. "Following the
acquisition of Kendle, and INC's leveraged buyout (LBO) in 2010,
we consider INC's financial risk profile highly leveraged with
adjusted leverage of more than 6x."


J.CREW: Bank Debt Trades at 10% Off in Secondary Market

LAS VEGAS SANDS: Bank Debt Trades at 6% Off in Secondary Market
---------------------------------------------------------------
Participations in a syndicated loan under which Las Vegas Sands
Corp. is a borrower traded in the secondary market at 93.95 cents-
on-the-dollar during the week ended Friday, Sept. 9, 2011, an
increase of 1.10 percentage points from the previous week
according to data compiled by Loan Pricing Corp. and reported in
The Wall Street Journal.  The Company pays 175 basis points above
LIBOR to borrow under the facility.  The bank loan matures on
May 1, 2014, and carries Standard & Poor's 'BB' rating.  The loan
is one of the biggest gainers and losers among 79 widely quoted
syndicated loans with five or more bids in secondary trading for
the week ended Friday.

                       About Las Vegas Sands

Las Vegas Sands Corp. owns and operates hotel and casino
integrated resort facilities in Las Vegas, NV, Bethlehem, PA,
Macau, China and Singapore.  The company generates consolidated
annual net revenue of close to $7 billion.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on June 17, 2011,
Standard & Poor's raised its corporate credit rating on the Las
Vegas Sands Corp. (LVSC) family of companies to 'BB' from 'BB-'.
Aside from Las Vegas Sands Corp., the LVSC family of rated
companies includes Las Vegas Sands LLC, its Venetian Casino Resort
LLC subsidiary, and affiliate VML U.S. Finance LLC.  "All issue-
level ratings were also raised by one notch in conjunction with
the corporate credit rating upgrade.  The rating outlook is
stable," S&P said.

"The rating upgrade reflects continued strong performance, and our
belief that under our updated long-term performance expectations,
Las Vegas Sands will maintain credit measures comfortably within
our threshold for a 'BB' corporate credit rating.  While the
proposed Macau refinancing will add approximately $1.1 billion of
additional debt to prefund development, we expect consolidated
EBITDA to grow approximately 30% in 2011 compared with 2010, which
would result in consolidated operating lease-adjusted leverage
improving to the mid-4x area by the end of 2011.  Given our
satisfactory assessment of LVSC's business risk profile, we would
be comfortable with leverage temporarily spiking as high as 5.5x
to fund development projects, but generally consider leverage
closer to 5x to be in line with a 'BB' corporate credit rating for
LVSC," S&P said.

On June 28, 2011, the TCR reported that Moody's revised Las Vegas
Sand Corp.'s rating outlook to positive from stable and affirmed
the company's Ba3 Corporate Family, Probability of Default, and
senior secured debt ratings.  LVSC has an SGL-1 Speculative Grade
Liquidity rating.

The outlook revision to positive reflects a higher degree of
confidence on the part of Moody's that LVSC will be able to reduce
and sustain debt/EBITDA at or below 3.5 times on a gross basis,
the target leverage required for a one-notch ratings upgrade.

"Given Moody's current expectation of annual consolidated EBITDA
of between 2.7 and 2.8 billion for 2011, LVSC's debt/EBITDA will
likely be between 4.0 and 4.3 times by the end of that period, and
could reach 3.5 times by the end of 2012 if business conditions in
Asia remain strong," stated Keith Foley, a Senior Vice President
at Moody's.  "However, LVSC would also need to adhere to a
conservative long-term financial policy in order to achieve a Ba2
Corporate Family Rating."

LLS AMERICA: Stern Doesn't Apply to Substantive Consolidation
-------------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Patricia C. Williams said the order for
substantive consolidation is within the Court's authority as the
relief sought arises in a case under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code and
is fundamental to the bankruptcy process and to the adjudication
of claims.  The narrow holding of Stern v. Marshall does not apply
to the Motion for Substantive Consolidation.

On June 30, 2011, the Chapter 11 Trustee for LLS America, LLC,
sought substantive consolidation of the Debtor's case with those
of Team Spirit America, LLC, D&D and Associates, Inc., and LLS
Canada, LLC.  On Aug. 9, 2011, the Court granted the Trustee's
motion and ordered LLS America LLC companies to be substantively
consolidated with the debtor nunc pro tunc as of July 21, 2009,
and ordered LLS America LLC to circulate a proposed order
consistent with its oral ruling.  Creditor Doris Nelson, the owner
of LLS America, and certain creditors of D&D filed an objection to
both the scope and content of the Trustee's proposed order and the
Court's constitutional authority to enter the order.

A copy of Judge Williams' Sept. 8, 2011 Memorandum Decision is
available at http://is.gd/seQ39Xfrom Leagle.com.

MAGNETEK INC: Gets Deficiency Notice From NYSE
----------------------------------------------
Magnetek, Inc. disclosed that the company received notification
from NYSE Regulation of being below the continued listing
standards of the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE").  The Company is
considered below criteria established by the NYSE because the
Company's average market capitalization has been less than $50
million over a consecutive 30 trading-day period and its last
reported shareholders' equity was less than $50 million.

In accordance with NYSE procedures, the Company has 45 days from
the receipt of the notice to submit a business plan to the NYSE
demonstrating how it intends to regain compliance with the NYSE's
continued listing standards within 18 months.  Magnetek intends to
develop and submit such a business plan within the required time
frame. The Listings and Compliance Committee of the NYSE will then
review the business plan for final disposition.

In the event the Committee accepts the plan, the Company will be
subject to quarterly monitoring for compliance with the business
plan and the Company's stock will continue to trade on the NYSE
during the plan period, subject to the Company's compliance with
other NYSE continued listing requirements.  In the event the
Committee does not accept the business plan, the Company will be
subject to suspension by the NYSE and delisting procedures.

The Committee may, at its discretion, accept the Company's
business plan but choose to truncate the usual 18 month plan
period, given the recurrence of having fallen below the continued
listing standards. In June 2010, the Company was notified by NYSE
Regulation that it was not in compliance with the continued
listing standards of the NYSE.  The Company subsequently submitted
a business plan and regained compliance with the listing standards
as of the end of the truncated 12 month plan period in June 2011.

Magnetek, Inc. manufactures digital power and motion control
systems used in material handling, people moving and energy
delivery.  The Company is headquartered in Menomonee Falls, Wis.

MAQ MANAGEMENT: Wants Messana to Replace Talarchyk Merrill
----------------------------------------------------------
Maq Management, Inc.; Super Stop Petroleum, Inc.; Super Stop
Petroleum I, Inc.; and Super Stop Petroleum IV, Inc. ask the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Florida for
authority to employ Thomas M. Messana, Esq., at Messana, P.A., in
Fort Lauderdale, Florida, as general bankruptcy counsel nunc pro
tunc to Aug. 23, 2011.

The Debtors have already employed Talarchyk Merrill LLC as general
bankruptcy counsel but irreconcilable differences have arisen
between the Debtors and its Prior Counsel.

Messana received a $50,000 retainer for services to be rendered
post-bankruptcy of the within bankruptcy.

The terms of the proposed engagement are that the Debtors will pay
a $100,000 retainer to Messana.  The retainer will be comprised
as:

   -- the $50,000 payment; and

   -- $50,000 within 60 days of the receipt of the first
      retainer.  This will be comprised of funds from BNK and any
      unused retainer received from Prior Counsel after Prior
      Counsel draws against his retainer pursuant to this Court's
      Order awarding him final fees and costs in connection with
      the bankruptcy case.

Before being paid anything in connection with the Chapter 11
cases, Messana intends to apply to the Court for allowance of
compensation for professional services rendered and reimbursement
of charges and disbursements incurred in this Chapter 11 case in
accordance with applicable provisions of the Bankruptcy Code, the
Bankruptcy Rules, the Local Bankruptcy Rules and the orders of the
Court.  Messana will seek compensation for the services of each
attorney and paraprofessional acting on behalf of Debtors in this
case at the then-current hourly rate charged for services.

Mr. Messana assures the Court that he is a "disinterested person"
as the term is defined in Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code.

A hearing on the Application was scheduled for September 2, 2011.

In a separate filing, the Debtors, Messana, and Talarchyk Merril
signed a stipulation agreeing to the counsel substitution.

MAYSVILLE INC: Wants Fifteen Encore's Case Dismissal Plea Denied
----------------------------------------------------------------
Maysville, Inc., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of Florida deny Fifteen Encore Platinum LLC's motion to
dismiss second filed case as a bad faith filing, or in the
alternative for relief from the automatic stay.

The Debtor explains that the bankruptcy case was not filed in bad
faith, to abuse the bankruptcy process or to circumvent a secured
creditor's legitimate collection efforts.  It was filed to provide
the Debtor with an opportunity to propose a confirmable plan of
reorganization.  The timing of the filing was primarily a product
of the expiration of the prejudice period from the Debtor's
previous chapter 11 case.

The Debtor notes that its prior Chapter 11 was dismissed because
it ran out of time to propose a confirmable plan.  Indeed, during
the hearing that led to the dismissal of the prior case, the Court
acknowledged that "There is a confirmable plan that could have
been filed in this case."

The Debtor believes that the Chapter 11 case will be successful,
unlike the first case, because the Debtor's revenues have
improved, a new lender purchased Mellon United National Bank now
known as MUNB Loan Holdings, LLC's judgment and the Debtor's
principals are prepared to make a material contribution of new
value to fund the Debtor's emergence from Chapter 11.

The Debtor relates that its proposed Plan of Reorganization will
seek to reduce the amount of the mortgage on its real estate to
the value of the mortgagee's interest in the property, restate the
terms of the mortgage to reflect reasonable commercial rates and
terms and utilize the Debtor's current rent revenue and a new
value contribution by the Debtor's principals to pay the market
value of the resulting allowed secured claim as well as other
secured, priority, administrative and unsecured creditors.

In response to Fifteen Group's request for relief from the
automatic stay, the Debtor reasons that the property is necessary
for an effective reorganization; Fifteen Group has not shown that
it is an undersecured creditor, and fifteen group is adequately
protected.

MEDPACE INC: S&P Assigns 'B+' Corporate Credit Rating
-----------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'B+' corporate
credit rating to Cincinnati-based contract research organization
Medpace Inc. The outlook is stable.

"At the same time, we assigned a 'B+' issue-level rating and '4'
recovery rating to the company's $335 million senior secured
credit facility. The facility consists of a $50 million senior
secured revolver due 2016 and $285 million senior secured term
loan due 2017," S&P related.

"The rating on Medpace reflects the company's weak business risk
profile, highlighted by its small position in contract research
services and the uncertain demand in the contract-based business,"
said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Michael Berrien. The
company's aggressive financial risk profile reflects leverage of
4.6x, following its leveraged buyout by financial sponsor CCMP
Capital.


MONTEBELLO, CA: Wins Dismissal of Lawsuit by Local Businessman
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Los Angeles Superior Court has dismissed a lawsuit against the
City of Montebello and the city's Community Redevelopment Agency,
marking another step in the city's progress towards restoring
confidence its financial recovery.

According to the court's decision on August 31, the lawsuit
brought by local businessman Ara Sevacherian had no merit since
the city has already repaid funds borrowed to cover the city's
short-term cash flow needs.  The court found that the city fully
satisfied its financial obligations to the redevelopment agency at
the time the agreement was terminated.

In June 2010, the city borrowed $16.8 million in short-term Tax
and Revenue Anticipation Notes, or TRANs, from the redevelopment
agency and repaid the notes in full in June 2011.  Cities, school
districts and community college districts frequently use low-
interest TRAN notes to tide them over during short 'dry periods'
of low cash flow before receiving anticipated revenue.

This summer, for example, the City of Los Angeles issued $1.2
billion in short-term TRAN notes; the City of San Jose, $125
million and the City of West Covina, $9.49 million.  The notes are
sold through investment banks, purchased by investors and must be
repaid within one fiscal year.

The lawsuit's dismissal clears the path for the city to issue up
to $3.9 million in short-term notes in mid-September following
city council approval on August 24.  This is one element of a
comprehensive plan to restore the city's financial health after a
series of poor practices and missteps by previous city
administrators and others who are no longer with the city.

In only three months since the plan was adopted, Montebello has
achieved a balanced budget with a $1 million reserve, and
continues to make progress on the city's established priority of
updating financial records and processes.

According to Mayor Art Barajas, "I am confident that the City of
Montebello has turned the corner.  We are in our strongest
financial position in recent years."  He added, "The city has
certainly had its hurdles over the past year, but instead of
stumbling and falling, the city has pulled itself up by its
bootstraps and we are getting our house in order."

Barajas explained, ". . . . sound, stable leadership is in place.
The city's past practice of shifting restricted funds to balance
the bottom line of the General Fund account has stopped.  New
auditors have reviewed the city's books and resolved many of the
poor past practices of prior city administrators, finance
directors and city council members.  Claims of 'errant payments to
developers from off the book' accounts have been proven unfounded
and are now resolved."

Said Vice Mayor Frank Gomez, "I want to emphasize that there is
absolutely no truth to the rumor that the city was ever
contemplating bankruptcy.  That never was and is still not an
option.  We are confident that the financial marketplace will
acknowledge our continued progress and support the issuance of the
city's short-term notes in September."

The city's in-depth, five-year Financial Recovery Plan to achieve
financial stability has already reaped results.

According to Larry Kosmont, interim city administrator,
"Montebello's budget was unbalanced for more than five years. The
city council, staff and consultant team have made a Herculean
effort to institute new controls, make budget cutbacks and find
new sources of revenue.  The Financial Recovery Plan will close
the General Fund structural deficit and minimize or resolve
unfunded liabilities."

Recent accomplishments include:

-- Budgetary Savings.  City departments have cut back costs and
   employees have agreed to contribute up to nine percent of
   salaries towards pension costs.  Estimated savings: over $1.5
   million for the 2011/12 fiscal year.

-- Oil levy Extension.  Oil operator PXP has voluntarily agreed to
   an oil levy extension.  Estimated revenue: $1 million per year.

-- Increased User Fees.  The city has increased user fees and
   charges, including plan check fees, animal license fees and
   other fees.  Estimated revenue: $435,000 to $575,000 per year.

-- New Costco Fuel Center.  The city will support Costco's plans
   to acquire city land and to develop a customer fuel station.
   Estimated revenue: over $110,000 per year in sales and gas tax
   revenues.

Said Kosmont, "The city has made tremendous progress in fixing
problems caused by poor past procedures and processes including a
lack of financial controls.  However, the management team is
realistic about the fact that some questions and deficient
administrative processes remain and will not rest until these
matters are resolved."

Kosmont confirmed that the city is cooperating with several
agencies that are conducting audits or investigations into past
activities.  He noted that the State Controller's Office has
conducted its audit and provided working draft findings and
indicated 'no surprises' so far.  HUD's recent audit and related
FBI investigation, which focused on the use of federal housing
money in 2009, has positively resulted in an action plan submitted
by the city with HUD's support.

On August 31, 2011 the city repaid nearly one-third of the funds
requested by HUD and will have satisfied the balance of this
year's required payments by the end of September.  "Our
relationships with these agencies are improving as they see the
city's dedication to positive and timely resolution," said
Kosmont.

In May 2011, the city hired First Southwest Company as financial
advisors and Kosmont Companies of Los Angeles as interim city
administrator and turnaround specialists.  In July, the city
retained De La Rosa & Co, Los Angeles-based investment bankers, to
sell short-term notes in September.

The city attorney's office, represented by Alvarez-Glasman &
Colvin of the City of Industry and special counsel AlvaradoSmith
of Los Angeles defended the city and redevelopment agency to win
dismissal of the Sevacherian lawsuit.

resorts foreclosed in January by Paulson & Co. and Winthrop Realty
Trust, has a buyer offering $170 million, according to papers
filed in bankruptcy court.

According to the report, the potential buyer wasn't identified.  A
formal contract, nearing completion, will allow for an auction and
the receipt of higher offers, the filing said.

The owners say the $170 million offer implies a value for all the
resorts "significantly" exceeding the $1.5 billion in debt.  The
Doral sale alone will reduce debt by 11 percent and eliminated
$9.5 million in annual interest expense, according to court
papers.

For future commercial or residential development, the resorts
intend to retain the so-called White Course, one of the five
courses at the Doral.

According to Mr. Rochelle, the disclosure was made in the resort's
second motion for an extension of the exclusive right to propose a
Chapter 11 plan. Sept. 20 is the hearing date for the exclusivity
motion.  If granted, no one else could file a reorganization plan
before Jan. 27.

NEIMAN MARCUS: Bank Debt Trades at 6% Off in Secondary Market
-------------------------------------------------------------
Participations in a syndicated loan under which Neiman Marcus
Group, Inc., is a borrower traded in the secondary market at 93.50
cents-on-the-dollar during the week ended Friday, Sept. 9, 2011,
an increase of 1.20 percentage points from the previous week
according to data compiled by Loan Pricing Corp. and reported in
The Wall Street Journal.  The Company pays 350 basis points above
LIBOR to borrow under the facility.  The bank loan matures on
May 16, 2018, and carries Moody's 'B2' rating and Standard &
Poor's 'BB-' rating.  The loan is one of the biggest gainers and
losers among 79 widely quoted syndicated loans with five or more
bids in secondary trading for the week ended Friday.

                        About Neiman Marcus

Neiman Marcus Group, Inc. headquartered in Dallas, Texas, operates
41 Neiman Marcus stores, 2 Bergdorf Goodman Stores, 6 CUSP stores,
30 Last Call clearance centers, and a direct on-line and catalog
business.  Total revenues are just under $4 billion.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on May 18, 2011,
Moody's upgraded Neiman Marcus Group, Inc.'s Corporate Family
Rating and Probability of Default Rating to B2 from B3.  In
addition, Moody's affirmed NMG's Speculative Grade Liquidity
rating at SGL-1 and $2,060 million senior secured term loan at B2.
The rating outlook is stable.  This rating action concludes the
review for possible upgrade initiated on April 25, 2011.

"Neiman Marcus has notably strengthened its capital structure by
repaying about $200 million in debt and successfully closing on a
refinancing that extended its nearest debt maturity from 2013 to
2015," said Maggie Taylor, a senior credit officer with Moody's.
"The stronger capital structure combined with solid operating
results and lower pro forma annual interest expense will lead to
improved credit metrics," added Ms. Taylor."  Pro forma for the
debt reduction for the upcoming year ending July 31, 2011, Moody's
expects NMG debt to EBITDA to fall to about 6.0 times from 6.6
times currently, and EBITA to interest expense to improve to about
2.0 times from 1.4 times.

On April 29, 2011, the TCR reported that Fitch Ratings has
affirmed its ratings on Neiman Marcus, including the Issuer
Default Rating (IDR) on Neiman Marcus, Inc., and its subsidiary,
The Neiman Marcus Group, Inc. (NMG), at 'B'.  The Rating Outlook
has been revised to Positive from Stable, based on the expectation
that the announced refinancings are completed.

Neiman Marcus is currently in the process of upsizing its secured
term loan facility to $2.060 billion from $1.506 billion, with a
term of seven years. In addition, it is also upsizing its secured
credit facility to $700 million from $600 million, with a five
year maturity.  Neiman Marcus expects to redeem the company's
$752.4 million of 9%/9/75% senior notes due 2015 with the $550
million in incremental proceeds from the term loan refinancing as
well as $260 million of cash on hand.

PHILLIPS RENTAL: Files First Modified Disclosure Statement
----------------------------------------------------------
Phillips Rental Properties, LLC, has filed with the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee a first
modified disclosure statement and plan of reorganization dated
Aug. 16, 2011.

Under the modified disclosure statement, the Debtor's assets will
be used to continue the Debtor's business.  Based on the Debtor's
best estimates of the future economy of the property building,
rental and sales industry, it is anticipated that the Debtor will
produce estimated monthly revenues of approximately $110,000.
The Debtor's Plan, if accepted, would result in full payment of
all allowed administrative, priority, and secured claims along
with 100% payments to the allowed claims of the unsecured Class
of creditors of their principal balance.

The Debtor's reorganization plan lists seven classes of claims,
only two of which are listed as impaired - Class VI (Unsecured
Non-Priority Claims) and Class VII (Insider Claims).  The claims
against the Debtor will be treated as:

     A. Class I Administration Claims - All allowed Administrative
        Expenses will be paid in full in cash by the Debtor on the
        later of (a) the date that such Claim is allowed or (b) on
        the Effective Date of Confirmation.  The Debtor will also
        pay U.S. Trustee Fees on or before the Effective Date.
        All trade payables and other administrative expense
        incurred by the Debtor postpetition for normal, reasonable
        and necessary operating expenses will be paid by the
        Debtor on or before the effective date of the Plan.

     B. Class II Priority Payments - Deposits by individuals will
        be handled according to the terms and conditions of the
        individual Rental Agreement.  Also, taxes owed to
        governmental units will be paid beginning on the Effective
        Date.

     C. Class III Modified Secured Claims - The new terms of
        payment will be that the Bank loans will be paid at the
        interest rate of 5.25% fixed for a period of five years.
        The loan will adjust based on an indexing factor of prime
        rate plus 1.5% each year after the first five years.  The
        loan will mature in 10 years.

        In addition to the change in the terms/monthly payment
        amount, the Debtor will incorporate partial release
        requirements because several Banks have more than one
        piece of property financed in one loan.  Upon the sale of
        a piece of property to a bona fide purchaser, the Bank
        will execute and deliver from time to time when requested
        partial releases of the lien of the deed of trust as to
        the parcel sold.

     D. Class IV Unmodified Secured Claim of Regions Bank - The
        $201,226.36 secured claim of the Regions Bank will be
        paid over a 30-year period to mature on Apr. 1, 2037,
        with interest at 4.125% with monthly amortization of
        $1,043.24.

     E. Class V Executory Contracts - The Debtor has approximately
        150 Rental Agreements.  Each of the Rental Agreements in
        place on the Effective Date of the Plan will be assumed by
        the Debtor according to the terms and conditions of each
        individual Rental Agreement or in accordance with any
        Court order or confirmation of Debtor's Plan.

     F. Class VI Unsecured Non-Priority Claims - This class
        consists of all unsecured, undisputed non-priority claims.
        The Debtor will pay $1,171.07 per month, which will be
        used to make a pro rata quarterly distribution to all
        creditors in this Class.  This payment will be made for a
        period of 60 months with the first payment beginning on
        the Effective Date of the Plan, which represents a 100%
        payoff of the principal balance of claims.

     G. Class VII Insider Claims - To the extent there are insider
        claims, this Class would receive no payment until all
        other payments are paid in full according to the terms of
        the Plan.  The ratio of equity ownership in the Debtor
        will remain with the present owners.

The compensation for the management of the Debtor to will remain
at the current level until the Plan is completed which is 16.1%
of rental incomes.  This is reflective of the market rate for
compensation for persons in East Tennessee performing similar
services and this rate is taken from Bank appraisals of Debtor's
properties.  The stockholders of the Debtor will continue to hold
the equity reflected by their stock ownership at the date of the
Petition filing.  Since taxable income is passed to the equity
holders, any actual tax liability will be reimbursed by the
Debtor.

The hearing on the adequacy of the Disclosure Statement is
scheduled on Sept. 20, 2011, at 09:00 A.M.

A copy of the first modified disclosure statement is available at:
http://bankrupt.com/misc/PHILLIPS_disclosure_modified.pdf

           TriSummit Say Disclosure Statement Inadequate

TriSummit Bank tells the Court that the Debtor fails to give any
information about how it calculates the various values of the
properties it lists as assets, whether on the petition date or
currently.  The Debtor states in its footnote merely that each
"current market value is based on current appraisal, tax
appraisal, comparable sales, or income approach analysis."
However, no appraisals, tax appraisals, or comparable sales or
income approaches are cited, according to TriSummit Bank.

Despite the modification to the Plan documents, TriSummit submits
that the Debtor still fails to explain its reconciliations on the
amounts of its secured debt.  Although the Debtor has paid
TriSummit Bank some of the payments, the Debtor fails to explain
how it calculates the claims at the petition, why those
calculations are less than the proofs of claim, why and with what
justification the debtor splits the payments between principal and
interest, why it omits interest, fees, costs, and charges provided
under the loan documents.

TriSummit Bank states that the Debtor's liquidation analysis makes
no sense as there is no basis for the Debtor's assertion that a
Chapter 7 liquidation would result in fire sale prices.  The
debtor wrongly compares its plan treatment to what the debtor
believes the properties would bring at foreclosure sales.  Unless
a secured creditor were to obtain relief from the automatic stay
for some reason other than lack of equity, a foreclosure sale

              U.S. Trustee Say Disclosures Deficient

Samuel K. Crocker, the United States Trustee for Region 8, tells
the Court that the Plan and Disclosure must contain more detail
regarding how the monthly checks to the taxing authorities will be
written to ensure that payments will be applied to all properties
with prepetition delinquencies.  If the delinquencies relate to
multiple properties in the city or county and the payments are not
properly designated by property, the taxing authorities may
misapply them by applying them all to one property, to the benefit
of some creditors and detriment of others.

The modified Disclosure Statement, the U.S. Trustee points out,
explains that the "reconciled" principal amounts proposed by the
debtor for the creditors were calculated by "taking the principal
balance due at the time of filing and applying half of all
payments made postpetition to principal and half to interest."

The U.S. Trustee submits that adequate protection payments may
only be applied to the outstanding principal balance of the loan.
Accordingly, the U.S. Trustee insists that the reconciled amounts
will have to be revised to apply the payments accordingly.

PIEDMONT CENTER: John Northen Appointed as Chapter 11 Trustee
-------------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge J. Rich Leonard tossed the management of Piedmont
Center Investments, LLC, over allegations of fraud, and appointed
John Northen, Esq., as chapter 11 trustee, at the behest of the
Bankruptcy Administrator.

For the past 12 years, Roger van Santvoord Camp has been a partial
owner and the managing member of the debtor, making him
responsible for all aspects of property management. Mr. Camp was
also the owner and manager of FEC Partners, LLC, which was
established for purposes of opening a bowling alley in a shopping
center owned by the debtor in Mebane, North Carolina.

On Aug. 18, 2011, the Bankruptcy Administrator filed an emergency
motion to appoint a chapter 11 trustee pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Sec.
1104(a)(1) of the Bankruptcy Code.  In support of her motion, the
BA asserts that a chapter 11 trustee is necessary because on Aug.
3, 2011, a federal grand jury in the Eastern District of North
Carolina indicted Mr. Camp on 15 felony counts related to bank
fraud, false statements, and identity theft.  The allegations in
the indictment are based on Mr. Camp's interactions with four
different financial institutions.

QUALITY HOME: At Risk of Return to Chapter 11
---------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the columnist for Bloomberg News, reports that
Quality Home Brands Holdings LLC was dealt a downgrade to a 'CCC'
corporate rating from Standard & Poor's in view of "continuing
poor operating performance and potential covenant breach over the
next 12 months."

Mr. Rochelle reports that the Skokie, Illinois-based company
implemented a prepacked Chapter 11 reorganization in January 2010
where unsecured creditors took 7.5% of the stock.  In the
bankruptcy, affiliate Generation Brands LLC listed assets of
$520 million and debt of $488 million.

Jeffrey M. Schlerf, Esq., at Fox Rothschild LLP represent the

QUALTEQ INC: Grounds for Moving Case Remains a Mystery
------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that grounds for moving the case out of Delaware remain a
mystery because the bank's motion was filed entirely under seal.
Secrecy evidently results from a confidentiality agreement
approved by a U.S. District Court in Chicago in early 2010.

QualTeq filed under Chapter 11 in mid-August along with
affiliates, blaming bankruptcy on negative publicity from court
rulings against the founder of the company.

According to court filings, several creditors obtained judgments
against Pethinaidu Veluchamy, the debtors' founder, followed by
"multiple other creditors" who "obtained multimillion dollar
judgments against the founder and/or his wife."

QUANTUM CORP: Dennis Wolf Resigns from Board of Directors
---------------------------------------------------------
Dennis P. Wolf, a member of the Board of Directors of Quantum
Corporation and chair of the Audit Committee, resigned from the
Board effective Sept. 6, 2011.

                        About Quantum Corp.

Based in San Jose, California, Quantum Corp. (NYSE:QTM) --
http://www.quantum.com/-- is a storage company specializing in
backup, recovery and archive.  Quantum provides a comprehensive,
integrated range of disk, tape, and software solutions supported
by a world-class sales and service organization.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2011, showed
$414.89 million in total assets, $472.34 million in total
liabilities, and a $57.45 million stockholders' deficit.

                           *     *     *

In January 2011, Moody's Investors Service upgraded Quantum
Corporation's Corporate Family and Probability of Default ratings
to B2 from B3 and revised the ratings on the senior secured debt
obligations to Ba3 from B1.  The rating outlook is positive.  The
upgrade of the CFR to B2 reflects Quantum's improved operating
performance, which stems from strong customer adoption and growth
of its higher margin branded disk-based systems and software
products, which Moody's expects to continue in FY12.

In March 2011, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its
corporate credit rating on storage manufacturer Quantum Corp. to
'B' from 'B-'.  The outlook is stable.  "The upgrade reflects that
the company has posted four sequential quarters of sustained
EBITDA generation, despite ongoing declines in its core tape
business and the absence of an EMC licensing arrangement," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Lucy Patricola.  In addition,
debt/EBITDA has been stable for the last four quarters at about 4x
and reduced from 2009 levels, primarily reflecting application of
free cash flow to debt reduction.


RADLAX GATEWAY: High Court Ruling Could Clarify Credit Bid Issue
----------------------------------------------------------------
Stephen J. Lubben at New York Times' DealBook reports that the
Supreme Court probably will not agree to hear the appeal in RadLAX
Gateway Hotel, LLC v. Amalgamated Bank, but it should.  And not
for the reasons the debtors argue in their petition to the court.

According to the report, the case involves the right of a secured
creditor -- in this case Amalgamated Bank -- to "credit bid" its
claim in the auction sale of a debtor's property when the sale is
part of the debtor's Chapter 11 bankruptcy plan.

Mr. Lubben says, for example, imagine a bankrupt company with
property worth $100 and a secured loan from a bank of $125.  If
the debtor's plan calls for the sale of the property, to what
extent can the bank forgive part of its claim, in place of paying
cash, to acquire the property?

According to Mr. Lubben, if the sale happens pre-plan under
Section 363 of the Bankruptcy Code is clear that a secured lender
has the right to credit bid.  Readers may recall that this was the
right that the Indiana pension funds wanted to exercise in the
Chrysler 363 sale; problem was the funds did not have a
controlling stake in the secured debt, notes the report.

But if the sale occurs under a plan, the Bankruptcy Code is a bit
unclear on this point and that has split the Circuit Courts of
Appeal.  The problem is rooted in the language of Section 1129(b),
which provides that if a secured creditor objects to the plan, the
debtor must provide the creditor with one of three treatments:

  -- Payment of the present value of the secured claim.
  -- Payment of the "indubitable equivalent" of the secured claim.
  -- Sale of the property subject to the creditors' right to
     credit bid.

The report says only the last is expressly subject to the
creditors' right to credit bid, and the problem develops when the
debtor instead proceeds under the "indubitable equivalent" test.

RASER TECHNOLOGIES: Sues UTC, Pratt & Whitney for Fraud
-------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Raser Technologies Inc., which confirmed a Chapter 11
plan on Aug. 30, filed a fraud lawsuit against UTC Power Corp. and
its owner, Pratt & Whitney Power Systems Inc.

According to the report, UTC made misrepresentations by assuring
Raser that 50 of its PureCycle units could be combined into a
10-megawatt geothermal power-generation plant, according to the
complaint filed in federal court in Wilmington, Delaware.

The report relates that according to the complaint, after
Hartford, Connecticut-based Pratt & Whitney took over UTC, a Pratt
& Whitney executive called the idea of combining small PureCycle
units into a commercial-grade generation facility "nuts,"
according to the complaint.  The executive was quoted in the
complaint as saying the Raser plant was a "joke."

The lawsuit is "frivolous and without merit" and based on "false
allegations," Pratt & Whitney said in an e-mailed statement.  The
complaint seeks unspecified damages based on claims including
fraud, negligent misrepresentation and breach of contract.

Mr. Rochelle notes that the lawsuit represents a principal source
of recovery for unsecured creditors.  The plan gave them nothing
aside from interests in a litigation trust in return for $65.1
million in claims.

The lawsuit is Raser Technologies Inc. v. UTC Power Corp.,
11-00768, U.S. District Court, District of Delaware (Wilmington).

RCC NORTH: Proceeding on U.S. Bank Plan Rendered Moot
-----------------------------------------------------
According to a docket entry, the proceeding with respect to the
confirmation of U.S. Bank, N.A.'s Plan of Reorganization has been
vacated as the matter has been rendered moot.

To recall, debtor RCC North, LLC, asked the U.S. Bankruptcy Court

READER'S DIGEST: Moody's Cuts Corporate to 'B3'; Outlook Negative
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Reader's Digest Association
Inc. Corporate Family rating to B3 from B1 and downgraded the
Senior Secured Note to B3 from B1. The outlook has changed from
stable to negative. The Senior Credit Facility, new Senor Secured
Term Loan, and Unsecured Term Loan are not rated. The downgrade
reflects weaker than expected results, a weakened liquidity
position, and the issuance of additional debt that matures in 2013
and 2014.

A summary of the ratings actions are:

Issuer: Reader's Digest Association, Inc.

Corporate Family Rating, Downgraded to B3 (from B1)

Probability of Default Rating, Downgraded to B3 (from B1)

Senior Secured Note due February 2017, Downgraded to B3 (from B1)
(LGD-4 57 %)

RATINGS RATIONALE

RDA's B3 rating reflect the weak revenue and earnings performance
for the 1st half of half of 2011, the corresponding increase in
leverage, the decline in cash balance from $169 million at the end
of 2010 to $63 million as of June 30th, 2011, the drawdown of the
remaining revolver facility post quarter end, and the issuance of
new debt that matures in 2013 and 2014. Moody's notes that revenue
declined in each of its divisions over the past six month period
caused by lower response rates to its marketing campaigns in
international markets, weaker ad revenue at its Everyday with
Rachael Ray magazine, and the discontinuance of a fitness product
that caused its Lifestyle & Entertainment division to report an
operating loss for the six month period. The decline in cash
balance is a concern as $43 million was used to buy back stock in
February 2011 under the previous Chief Executive Officer. RDA is
also constrained by negative secular trends in many of its
business lines and its high degree of sensitivity to economic
conditions. The company's results are largely determined by the
upcoming 4th quarter which will prove challenging in the current
economic environment. New products will need to be launched to
replace its prior fitness product, progress will be needed to
improve results at its Everyday with Rachael Ray publication, and
customer response rates at its direct marketing division will need
to improve. Its direct marketing division will be challenged to
update its product offerings away from its traditional focus on
books, music and videos. The company does derive strength from it
its international diverse operations, large customer base and its
flagship brand name which could drive additional sponsorship
opportunities that could potentially mitigate some of weakness in
other divisions. Additional positive support could also be
achieved from future asset sales which could help to reduce debt
and increase liquidity going forward.

On August 12, 2011, RDA privately placed $45 million of new
Secured Term Loans that matures November 2013 which is pari passu
with the Senior Secured Notes and the Senior Credit Facility.
However, the Secured Term loan and the Senior Credit Facilities
are Priority Payment Lien Obligations that provide for first out
priority in a default scenario. The Secured Term loan also contain
mandatory prepayment provisions in the case of certain asset sales
and has similar covenants and limitations as the Senior Credit
Facility. In addition, it restricts their ability to replace or
refinance the Senior Credit Facility that matures in February 2013
prior to repaying the Secured Term Loan in full. At the same time,
$10 million of unsecured term loan was issued that matures in May
2014 and contain mandatory prepayment provision in the case of
certain asset sales. The company also drew the remaining amount
available under its $50 million revolver despite rather limited
financial cushion with its covenants that step down by 25bps at
December 31, 2011 and March 31, 2012 for both the Senior Credit
Facility and the new Senior Secured Note. While the new issue and
drawn down of the revolver provides added liquidity in the near
term, it increases that amount of debt that is needed to be repaid
or refinanced in 2013 and 2014.

Rating Outlook

The outlook has been changed to negative given the recent
operating trends and the challenges of improving results in a
difficult global economic environment. The limited cushion in its
financial covenants and the increase in debt that matures in 2013
is also a factor in the rating outlook. While cash could be used
to repay the revolver to avoid breaching covenants, it would limit
access to the revolver going forward which is a concern given the
seasonality of working capital and the large cash amounts needed
to run a diversified international operation.

What Could Change the Rating UP?

An upgrade is not likely in the near term given the recent
downgrade. Improved financial performance that reduced leverage
below 5x (including Moody's standard adjustments) on a sustainable
basis with adequate liquidity and no near term maturities could
change the outlook to stable. An asset sale and the use of
proceeds to repay near term debt with stabilized operating
performance, could also be a source of positive rating pressure.

What Could Change the Rating Down?

Leverage above 6.5x would likely trigger a further downgrade or a
failure to make progress improving results to position the company
to satisfactory address its 2013 maturities would lead to a
downgrade.

Reader's Digest's ratings were assigned by evaluating factors that
Moody's considers relevant to the credit profile of the issuer,
such as the company's (i) business risk and competitive position
compared with others within the industry; (ii) capital structure
and financial risk; (iii) projected performance over the near to
intermediate term; and (iv) management's track record and
tolerance for risk. Moody's compared these attributes against
other issuers both within and outside Reader's Digest's core
industry and believes Reader's Digest's ratings are comparable to
those of other issuers with similar credit risk. Other
methodologies used include Loss Given Default for Speculative-
Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada and EMEA
published in June 2009.

Realogy has 'Caa2' corporate family rating and 'Caa3' probability
of default rating, with positive outlook, from Moody's.  The
rating outlook is positive.  Moody's said in January 2011 that the
'Caa2' CFR and 'Caa3' PDR reflects very high leverage, negative
free cash flow and uncertainty regarding the timing and strength
of a recovery of the residential housing market in the U.S.
Moody's expects Debt to EBITDA of about 14 times for the 2010
calendar year.  Despite the recently completed and proposed
improvements to the debt maturity profile, the Caa2 CFR continues
to reflect Moody's view that current debt levels are unsustainable
and that a substantial reduction in debt levels will be required
to stabilize the capital structure.

SCIENTIFIC GAMES: S&P Keeps 'BB' Corporate Credit Rating
--------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its issue-level rating
to Scientific Games International's new $803 million senior
secured credit facilities. "We assigned the credit facilities our
'BBB-' issue-level rating (two notches higher than our 'BB'
corporate credit rating on the company) with a recovery rating of
'1', indicating our expectation for very high (90% to 100%)
recovery for lenders in the event of a payment default. The senior
secured credit facilities comprise a $247 million revolving credit
facility and a $555.8 million term loan both due June 30, 2015,"
S&P said.

"The transaction does not change our 'BB' corporate credit rating
and negative outlook on the parent company, Scientific Games
Corp.," S&P stated

"The 'BB' corporate credit rating on Scientific Games Corp.
reflects our assessment of the company's financial risk profile as
aggressive, given the company's high debt leverage and substantial
acquisition activity and investments through joint ventures," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Melissa Long.

"The rating also reflects our assessment of Scientific Games'
business risk profile as fair, reflecting the highly competitive
market conditions in the lottery industry for contract renewals
and for new contracts, which often result in pricing pressure, the
mature nature and capital intensity of the online lottery industry
and the company's limited business diversity. Offsetting factors
are Scientific Games' leadership position in the instant ticket
lottery segment of the gaming industry, a diversified customer
base, and substantial recurring revenue and cash flow, given long-
term contracts with renewal options that are typically exercised,"
S&P related.


SENTINEL MANAGEMENT: BNY Transfers Hurt Creditors, 7th Circ. Told
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Megan Stride at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that an attorney for
Sentinel Management Group Inc.'s Chapter 11 trustee told a Seventh
Circuit panel Thursday that Bank of New York Mellon Corp. breached
its duties and harmed other creditors by accepting fraudulent
transfers from Sentinel.

According to Law360, Catherine Steege of Jenner & Block LLP argued
on behalf of trustee Frederick J. Grede in his bid to revive his
Illinois suit against BNY Mellon seeking damages of $550 million
from the bank, which the trustee claims improperly allowed
Sentinel to mix customers' assets with its own holdings.

SIGNATURE STYLES: Judge Clears to Sell Assets to Patriarch
----------------------------------------------------------
Dow Jones' DBR Small Cap reports that Signature Styles LLC won
permission to transfer its assets out of bankruptcy to current
owner and private-equity firm Patriarch Partners in exchange for a
large chunk of debt and a small sliver of cash.


Signature Styles did not receive any qualified competing bids to
acquire the Company's assets.  Accordingly, Signature Styles
sought court approval to complete the asset sale contemplated in
the stalking horse asset purchase agreement with Artemiss, LLC.
Artemiss is an affiliate of private equity firm Patriarch
Partners, which owned and was the secured lender to Signature
Styles before it filed for bankruptcy in June of this year.

The buyer will assume specified debt, including $30 million on a
term loan and revolving credit.  The buyer will also honor some
customer obligations.  The bankruptcy judge gave the official
creditors' committee authority to search for a buyer with a better
offer by using confidential financial information.  The committee
had opposed the proposed sale process, saying it was "half-hearted
window dressing intended to cloak Patriarch's efforts to cleanse
the debtors' balance sheet of unsecured indebtedness with the
appearance of fairness and equity."  Originally, the contract with
Patriarch required approval of the sale by Aug. 4.

                     About Signature Styles

Signature Styles LLC, owner of the Spiegel catalog, filed a
Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. D. Del. Case No. 11-11733) on June 6,
2011, along with a deal to sell the business to affiliates of the
current owners and lenders.

New York-based Signature Styles, which filed for bankruptcy
together with its affiliates, disclosed assets of $48.6 million
and debt of $867.6 million.  It purchased the Spiegel business for
$21.7 million at a foreclosure sale in June 2009.  Debt includes
$37.2 million owing on a secured term loan and revolving credit.
Unsecured debt totals $35.3 million, which include $9.8 million
owing to trade suppliers and $23.2 million in customer
obligations.  The lenders and owners are funds affiliated with
Patriarch Partners LLC.

Christopher A. Ward, Esq., at Polsinelli Shughart PC, in
Wilmington, Delaware, serves as counsel to the Debtor.  Western
Reserve Partners LLC serves as investment bankers. Epiq Bankruptcy
Solutions, LLC, is the claims and notice agent.

A fund affiliated with Patriarch Partners LLC has an agreement to
buy the business in return for the assumption of specified debt,
including $30 million owing on the term loan and revolving credit.
The buyer also will honor some customer obligations.  The
stalking-horse purchase agreement requires approval of bidding
procedures by July 7 and approval of a sale by Aug. 4.

Roberta A. Deangelis, United States Trustee for Region 3, under 11
U.S.C. SEC 1102(a) and (b), appointed the following amended

SOLYNDRA LLC: Over 1,000 Former Employees Now Looking for Jobs
--------------------------------------------------------------
Chapter11Cases.com reports that Solyndra's failure led to over
1,000 layoffs and those employees are now looking for new
employment.

Chapter11Cases.com also reports that the FBI has raided the
offices of solar-panel company Solyndra, days after it declared
bankruptcy and left U.S. taxpayers holding the bag for some
$535 million in federal loans.

                       About Solyndra LLC

Fremont, California-based Solyndra LLC and an affiliate sought
Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case No.
11-12799) on Sept. 6, 2011.

Solyndra LLC is at least the third solar company to seek court
protection from creditors since August.

Solyndra LLC owed secured lenders $783.8 million, including
$527.8 million to the U.S. government pursuant to a federal loan
guarantee, and held assets valued at $859 million as of the
Petition date.  The U.S. Federal Financing Bank, owned by the U.S.
Treasury Department, is the Company's biggest lender.

Founded in 2005, Solyndra is a U.S. manufacturer of solar
photovoltaic solar power systems specifically designed for large
commercial and industrial rooftops and for certain shaded
agriculture applications.  The Company had approximately 968 full
time employees and 211 temporary employees.  Solyndra has sold
more than 500,000 of its panels since 2008 and generated
cumulative sales of over $250 million.

In the Chapter 11 cases, the Debtors are pursuing a two-pronged
strategy to effectuate either a sale of their business to a
"turnkey" buyer who may acquire substantially all of Solyndra's
assets or, if the Debtors are unable to identify any such
potential buyers, an orderly liquidation of the Debtors' assets
for the benefit of their creditors.

The Company has tapped Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP as legal
adviser


SOLYNDRA LLC: Faces Criminal Probe; FBI Raids Fremont HQ
--------------------------------------------------------
The Wall Street Journal's Thomas Catan and Deborah Solomon report
that people familiar with the matter said Solyndra LLC is the
target of a criminal investigation into whether its executives
knowingly misled the government to secure more than $500 million
in loan guarantees.

The Journal reports agents from the Federal Bureau of
Investigation on Thursday raided the company's headquarters in
Fremont, Calif., carting away documents and computer equipment as
part of the previously undisclosed federal probe.  The raids were
conducted at the behest of the Department of Energy's inspector
general, and agents from that office took part, officials said.

The report says the raids jolted Washington, where Republicans had
this week criticized the White House's support for the financially
stricken company.  Some Democratic lawmakers also called for
company executives to answer questions before Congress.

The Journal relates Solyndra spokesman David Miller called the
raid a "total surprise" and said he didn't know what the FBI was
looking for.  "We are cooperating and giving them access to
whatever they want," he said.

The Journal says Solyndra CEO Brian Harrison declined to comment
through Mr. Miller.

SOUTH EDGE: Ch. 11 Trustee Wants to Disqualify Bogatz Attorney
--------------------------------------------------------------
Samuel Howard at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that the Chapter 11
trustee overseeing South Edge LLC's reorganization on Tuesday
called for the ouster of the Bogatz & Associates PC attorney
representing one of the developers in the contentious case.

According to Law360, trustee Cynthia Nelson urged the bankruptcy
court to disqualify I. Scott Bogatz from representing Focus South
Group LLC, one of eight builders that joined forces to build a

SOUTHWEST GEORGIA: Files Chapter 11 Restructuring Plan
------------------------------------------------------
Holly Jessen at Ethanol Producer Magazine reports that Southwest
Georgia Ethanol LLC has filed a restructuring plan in U.S.
Bankruptcy Court and a Sept. 27, 2011, deadline has been set for
filing written objection to the plan.

According to the report, the 100 MMgy ethanol plant in Camilla,
Ga., has been operating as a debtor-in-possession since filing for
Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in February.  The ethanol plant
is a wholly-owned subsidiary of First United Ethanol LLC, which
did not file for Chapter 11.  FUEL holds Class A member interest
in and owns all of the outstanding equity in the debtor, according
to court documents.  CT Corporation Staffing holds Class B member
interest but no ownership interest.

The report says an estimated $107 million is owed to the pre-
petition senior secured lenders.  If the restructuring plan is
approved, those lenders will receive new Class B equity and new
preferred equity, adding up to a 97 percent return on their
investment.  FUEL would receive new Class A equity and it would be
"very unlikely" that the company would "recognize any value from
its equity interest in the reorganized debtor," court documents
said.

The report relates that other creditors will receive far less
under this plan.  The bondholders, owed an estimated $8.7 million,
and Fagen Inc., which is owed about $4.2 million, would each
receive about a 3 percent return.  The company entered into a
design-build contract with Fagen in 2006, for a total price of
$125 million, subject to further adjustment depending on timing,
increase in the cost of materials and other factors.

If the plan is not approved, the Chapter 11 case may be converted
to a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, or liquidation, the company said in
court documents.  It further warned that distributions to
creditors would be delayed significantly and it would likely mean
smaller recovery to creditors.  "The plan was developed over
several months and is the product of extensive, arm's-length
negotiations among the debtor, the agents, and holders of a
majority in amount of the senior secured lender claims," the
company said. "The debtor and the agents believe that approval of
the plan presents the best chance for the debtor's successful
emergence from Chapter 11."

If the plan is approved, all members of the board of managers of
the debtor will resign as of the plan's effective date.  The new
Class A units, given to FUEL, would collectively have 75 percent
of all voting rights and the new Class B units, which would belong
to the senior secured lenders, 25 percent of all voting rights.
In addition, all individuals serving as executive officers and
managers plus some or all of the senior management employees will
retain their jobs.

Volatility in commodity prices for corn, natural gas and ethanol
contributed to the company's decision to apply for Chapter 11
Bankruptcy, according to court documents.  In 2010 the ethanol
plant hired a third party to help it identify areas for improving
operational effectiveness.  The company also worked through Morgan
Keegan, its financial advisor and investment banker, but after
contacting about 30 parties was unsuccessful in identifying a
potential buyer.  As of Aug. 1, Morgan Keegan put the enterprise
value of the reorganized debtor at $103 to $108 million, the
report says.

                  About Southwest Georgia Ethanol

Southwest Georgia Ethanol LLC, a unit of First United Ethanol Co.,
sought bankruptcy protection (Bankr. M.D. Ga. 11-10145) in Albany,
Georgia, on Feb. 1, 2011.

The Debtor owns and operates an ethanol production facility
located on 267 acres in Mitchell County, Georgia, producing
100 million gallons of ethanol annually.  Ethanol production
operations commenced in October 2008.  Revenue was $168.9 million
for fiscal year ended Sept. 30, 2010.  The Debtor said
profitability and liquidity have been materially reduced by
unfavorable fluctuations in commodity prices for ethanol and corn.

John Michael Levengood, Esq., at McKenna Long & Aldridge LLP, in
Atlanta, Georgia, serves as counsel to the Debtor.  Morgan Keegan
& Company, Inc., is the investment banker and financial advisor.

The Debtor's balance sheet showed $164.7 million in assets and
$134.1 million in debt as of Dec. 31, 2010.

Since 2008, at least 11 ethanol-related companies have sought
court protection, including VeraSun Energy Corp., once the second-
largest U.S. ethanol maker; units of Pacific Ethanol Inc.; and
White Energy Holding Co.


SOUTHWEST SPORTS: Bankr. Ct. Abstains From Suit v. Kleem et al.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Arthur I. Harris abstains from hearing the
lawsuit, Southwest Sports Center, Inc., v. John Kleem, et al.,
Adv. Proc. No. 10-1312 (Bankr. N.D. Ohio), saying the Ohio state
court is the preferred forum to rule on the debtor's remaining
claims.  The parties have previously litigated issues related to
the real estate appraisal and sale of the plaintiff-debtor's
commercial property in state court proceedings.  The Court
previously dismissed some claims of the adversary complaint based
on lack of subject matter jurisdiction.  The defendants seek to
have the Court to abstain from exercising jurisdiction under 28
U.S.C. Sec. 1334(c)(1) because the remaining claims in the
adversary proceeding would more appropriately be heard by an Ohio
state court.

The dispute has had a convoluted history through various state and
federal courts.  The litigation began in the Cuyahoga County Court
of Common Pleas in 2007, and the decision in that state court case
was appealed to the state court of appeals. In 2009 a second state
court case was filed, also in the Court of Common Pleas, as well
as the debtor's filing of a Chapter 11 case in Bankruptcy Court.
In 2010, the debtor filed the adversary proceeding.

The Court's decision also pointed to the U.S. Supreme Court ruling
in Stern v. Marshall.  A copy of Judge Harris' Sept. 6, 2011
Memorandum of Opinion is available at http://is.gd/UHoFiZfrom

Southwest Sports Center Inc. owns commercial real property located
at 975 and 1005 West Bagley Road, Berea, Ohio.  The commercial
property is comprised of a golf driving range, a Dairy Queen
Restaurant, a miniature golf course, and a single-family
residence.  Southwest Sports Center filed for Chapter 11
bankruptcy (Bankr. N.D. Ohio Case No. 09-21982) on Dec. 20, 2009.


STILLWATER INVESTMENT: Lists $8.05 Million in Assets
----------------------------------------------------
Chris Bagley at the Triangle Business Journal, citing court
filings, reports that Stillwater Investment Group LLC has assets
of $8.05 million, including real estate that it values at $7.26
million, according to its bankruptcy filing.  The filing listed 63
lots on 63 acres in the subdivision.

According to the report, the bankruptcy filing is a move that
allows the Company to delay payment on nearly $6 million in debts
while it reorganizes its business, according to the report6,

The Triangle Business Journal relates Stillwater's creditors
include TAB Premium Built Homes, of New Bern, and Thomas Andrew
Bayliss, who is chief executive of TAB and managing member of the
development company.  Mr. Bayliss said the builder is in good
financial health and that both companies are continuing with plans
to bring the houses to market.

Stillwater Investment Group LLC is the developer of the waterfront
Stillwater Harbour subdivision near New Bern.


SURETY CAPITAL: 5th Cir. Affirms Atty. Fees in Bank of Texas Suit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
After dismissing a noteholder's complaint for breach of the
Chapter 11 plan, the bankruptcy court awarded attorney's fees. The
noteholder appealed the fees award to the district court, which
affirmed. In a Sept. 8, 2011 decision, the United States Court of
Appeals for the Fifth Circuit also affirmed.

In 1998, Surety Capital Corporation issued notes pursuant to an
indenture agreement. Richard N. Abrams held some of the notes. In
2007, Surety filed a Chapter 11 petition in the United States
Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas. During the
bankruptcy proceedings, the Bank of Texas became the Indenture
Trustee.

The bankruptcy court entered two orders for Surety to pay the Bank
of Texas funds that the bank would disburse to the noteholders.
The first was for the disbursement of principal on the notes; the
second was for the interest. Because there were insufficient funds
for the interest to be paid in full, the bankruptcy court ordered
that the interest payments be reduced by $350,000. For the
disbursement of principal, the Bank of Texas filed a proof of
claim for its fees and costs as trustee.  Mr. Abrams did not
object. For the disbursement of interest, the Bank of Texas
disbursed the funds in accordance with the Indenture Agreement,
which provided the trustee be paid for its fees and costs, and Mr.
Abrams did not object.  After all of the funds were disbursed, the
bankruptcy court closed the case.

In 2009, Mr. Abrams brought suit in Texas state court for a
declaratory judgment that the Bank of Texas failed to follow the
terms of the Chapter 11 Plan.  His claims were based on breach of
contract, negligent misconduct, and breach of fiduciary duty. The
Bank of Texas removed the case to the bankruptcy court that had
resolved Surety's Chapter 11 petition, after an emergency motion
to reopen the bankruptcy case had been granted.  The bankruptcy
court dismissed Mr. Abrams' suit on the basis of res judicata. It
also awarded attorney's fees to the Bank of Texas, holding that
the indenture agreement and Trust Indenture Act permitted the
discretionary award of fees and no statutory exception applied.

Mr. Abrams appealed, arguing that his suit in Texas state court
was to recover unpaid interest on the debt, a kind of suit that
under the Trust Indenture Act would bar an award of fees.  He also
that the district court should have denied fees because his suit
was taken in good faith.

The Fifth Circuit noted that the bankruptcy court and the district
court both considered Mr. Abrams' level of involvement in the
bankruptcy case and concluded that his challenge should have been
raised prior to the bankruptcy discharge.  Neither court concluded
that this suit was taken in either bad faith or good faith.  The
district court's due regard of this issue is evidenced by its
review of the merits of the suit and consideration whether it was
brought in good faith.

The case is RICHARD N. ABRAMS, Appellant, v. BANK OF TEXAS, N.A.,
Appellee, No. 10-11255 (5th Cir.).  A copy of the Fifth Circuit's
decision is available at http://is.gd/cA9NhGfrom Leagle.com.

The panel consists of Circuit Judges Jerry E. Smith, Leslie H.
Southwick and Catharina Haynes.

                     About Talon Therapeutics

Formerly known as Hana Biosciences, Inc., Talon Therapeutics Inc.
(TLON.OB.) -- http://www.talontx.com/-- is a biopharmaceutical
company dedicated to developing and commercializing new,
differentiated cancer therapies designed to improve and enable
current standards of care.  The company's lead product candidate,
Marqibo, potentially treats acute lymphoblastic leukemia and
lymphomas.  The Company has additional pipeline
opportunities some of which, like Marqibo, improve delivery and
enhance the therapeutic benefits of well characterized, proven
chemotherapies and enable high potency dosing without increased
toxicity.

Effective Dec. 1, 2010, Hana Biosciences Inc. changed its name to
Talon Therapeutics Inc.  The name change was effected by merging
Talon Therapeutics, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the
Company, with and into the Company, with the Company as the
surviving corporation in the merger.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2011, showed
$11.58 million in total assets, $38.08 million in total
liabilities, $30.64 million in redeemable convertible preferred
stock, and a $57.14 million total stockholders' deficit.

The Company reported a net loss of $25.98 million for the year
ended Dec. 31, 2010, compared with a net loss of $24.14 million
during the prior year.  The Company does not generate any
recurring revenue and will require substantial additional capital
before it will generate cash flow from its operating activities,
if ever.  The Company does not currently have sufficient capital
to fund its entire development plan beyond 2011.

As reported by the TCR on April 1, 2011, BDO USA, LLP, in San
Francisco, Calif., expressed substantial doubt about the Company's
ability to continue as a going concern.  BDO noted that the
Company suffered recurring losses from operations and has a net
capital deficiency.


THINKFILM INC: Judge Rejects Trustee's Bid to Merge Ch. 11 Cases
----------------------------------------------------------------
Samuel Howard at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that U.S. Bankruptcy
Judge Barry Russell refused Tuesday to consolidate the bankruptcy
cases for film producer David Bergstein's various businesses and
to lump in nondebtor affiliates despite claims from the Chapter 11
trustee that Mr. Bergstein's empire is a "shell game."

Lawyer Jeffrey Garfinkle said Judge Russell rejected the trustee
Ronald Durkin's bid to substantively consolidate the five
bankruptcy cases and 12 nondebtor companies, finding little reason
to give the trustee sweeping control over the debtors as well as
unencumbered affiliates, according to Law360.

                     About Thinkfilm, et al.

CapCo Group LLC and four other companies controlled by David
Bergstein are part of a wider network of entities that distribute
and finance films.  Among the approximately 1,300 films they have
the rights to are "Boondock Saints" and "The Wedding Planner."

Several creditors filed for involuntary Chapter 11 bankruptcy
against the companies on March 17, 2010 -- CT-1 Holdings LLC
(Bankr. C.D. Calif. Case No. 10-19927); CapCo Group, LLC (Bankr.
C.D. Calif. Case No. 10-19929); Capitol Films Development LLC
(Bankr. C.D. Calif. Case No. 10-19938); R2D2, LLC (Bankr. C.D.
Calif. Case No. 10-19924); and ThinkFilm LLC (Bankr. C.D. Calif.
Case No. 10-19912).  Judge Barry Russell presides over the cases.
The Petitioners are represented by David L. Neale, Esq., at Levene
Neale Bender Rankin & Brill LLP.

Federal bankruptcy judge Barry Russell formally declared David
Bergstein's ThinkFilm LLC and Capitol Films Development bankrupt
on October 5, 2010.

Mr. Bergstein is being sued for tens of millions of dollars by
nearly 30 creditors -- including advertisers, publicists and the
Writers Guild West.  Five Bergstein controlled companies have been
named in the suit.


TELX ACQUISITION: Moody's Assigns 'B3' Corporate Family Rating
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has assigned a B3 corporate family
rating (CFR) to Telx Merger Sub, Inc., the financing entity
established to acquire Telx Group, Inc. In addition, Moody's has
assigned a B1 rating to the proposed $340 million senior secured
credit facility, which, in conjunction with an unrated $145
million senior secured notes offering will be used to finance the
private transaction. The outlook is stable. Upon completion of the
transaction, Moody's will withdraw the B2 CFR and associated debt
ratings from Telx Group, Inc.

Moody's has taken these rating actions:

   Issuer: Telx Merger Sub, Inc.

   -- Corporate Family Rating, Assigned B3

   -- Probability of Default Rating, Assigned B3

   -- $50 million Senior Secured Revolver due 2016, Assigned B1,
      LGD 3-31%

   -- $290 million Senior Secured Term Loan due 2017, Assigned B1,
      LGD 3-31%

   Outlook, Stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

Telx's B3 rating reflects its small scale, near-term negative free
cash flow and high leverage following the proposed leveraged
buyout. These limiting factors are offset by Telx's stable base of
contracted recurring revenues, its strategic real estate holdings
in key communications hubs, the strong industry growth within the
data center market and the inherent operating leverage of the
business model.

The incremental debt load will result in higher cash interest
expense which will reduce Telx's ability to reinvest into the
business, potentially leading to a slowdown in top line growth.
Additionally, the cash cushion amassed from prior debt issuances
($60 million on hand at 6/30/11) will disappear in the
transaction, leaving Telx with a weaker liquidity profile. As
such, further debt issuances or drawings upon the revolver are
likely. Telx's prior B2 rating had assumed that EBITDA growth
during 2011 and 2012 would lead to leverage falling below 6x
(Moody's adjusted Debt/EBITDA). Although near-term revenue growth
will remain strong, the incremental deal-related debt will result
in leverage of over 7x through year-end 2012.

Moody's rates the senior secured term loan and revolving credit
facility B1, two notches above the CFR due to its priority claim
on assets and the loss protection provided by the proposed $145
million unrated senior unsecured notes.

Telx is anticipated to maintain adequate liquidity over the next
12-18 months. Moody's anticipates that internally generated cash
will support the company's base operating and capital expenses,
but that external liquidity will be required for project-related
capital spending. Telx is likely to draw upon its $50 million
revolver to fund any shortfall, although Moody's anticipates that
utilization of the facility will remain below 50%.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectation that strong
industry demand will continue to result in revenue growth, higher
space utilization and higher EBITDA over the next 12-18 months.

Moody's could raise Telx's ratings if leverage were to trend below
6x on a sustainable basis amidst stable operations and adequate
liquidity. The ratings could be lowered if liquidity were to
become strained, if industry pricing were to deteriorate due to
competitive pressure or if the company were to increase leverage.

The principal methodology used in rating Telx was the Global
Communications Infrastructure Industry Methodology 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.

Headquartered in New York, NY, Telx Group is a provider of network
neutral, global interconnection, and co-location services. As of
June 30, 2011, the company operates 15 interconnection and
colocation facilities in multiple regions across the United
States.


TENET HEALTHCARE: Rights Agreement with BNY Expires Sept. 12
------------------------------------------------------------
Tenet Healthcare Corporation, on Sept. 7, 2011, entered into an
amendment to the Section 382 Rights Agreement dated as of Jan. 7,
2011, as amended, between the Company and The Bank of New York
Mellon, as rights agent, to accelerate the final expiration date
of the rights issued thereunder to the close of business on
Sept. 12, 2011.  Accordingly, as of the close of business on
Sept. 12, 2011, the rights issued under the Rights Agreement will
expire and no longer be outstanding.  A full-text copy of the
Amendment is available for free at http://is.gd/bzERRT

                       About Tenet Healthcare

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

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2011, showed $8.43 billion
in total assets, $6.54 billion in total liabilities, $16 million
in redeemable noncontrolling interests in equity of consolidated
subsidiaries and $1.87 billion in total equity.

                           *     *     *

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

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

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

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

      Action, Inc. which are the property managers employed by
      the trustee; and

   -- the value of the Debtor's real estate located at 3674
      Island Drive in Topsail Beach, the three lots located in
      The Sanctuary in Mecklenburg County, the real estate
      located on Country Club Road in Hampstead (formerly owned
      by HP, Inc. and ordered by the Court to be transferred to
      TP, Inc.), exceeds the valid non-avoidable encumbrances
      against each respective property and the trustee has taken
      steps to market and sell these properties for the benefit
      the bankruptcy estate and creditors.  The Debtor may also
      own certain other underencumbered real estate which might
      be liquidated for the benefit of the estate.

                         About TP, Inc.

following the Company's 2009 results.  The firm noted that the

UNIVISION COMMS: Bank Debt Trades at 14% Off in Secondary Market
----------------------------------------------------------------
Participations in a syndicated loan under which Univision
Communications Inc. is a borrower traded in the secondary market
at 86.21 cents-on-the-dollar during the week ended Friday, Sept.
9, 2011, an increase of 0.58 percentage points from the previous
week according to data compiled by Loan Pricing Corp. and reported
in The Wall Street Journal.  The Company pays 425 basis points
above LIBOR to borrow under the facility.  The bank loan matures
on March 29, 2017, and carries Moody's B2 rating and Standard &
Poor's B+ rating.  The loan is one of the biggest gainers and
losers among 79 widely quoted syndicated loans with five or more
bids in secondary trading for the week ended Friday.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Jan. 12, 2011,
Standard & Poor's affirmed its ratings on New York City-based
Spanish language TV and radio broadcaster Univision Communications
Inc.'s 8.5% senior unsecured notes due 2021, following the
Company's proposed $315 million add-on to the issue.  The add-on
would bring the total dollar amount of the issue to $815 million.
The issue-level rating on this debt remains at 'CCC+ (two notches
lower than the 'B' corporate credit rating on the Company), and
the recovery rating remains at '6', indicating S&P's expectation
of negligible (0% to 10%) recovery for noteholders in the event of
a payment default.

S&P expects Univision to use proceeds from the proposed issuance
to repay the remaining portion of its 9.75%/10.5% senior unsecured
toggle notes due 2015, following the expiration of its current
tender offer for the notes.  The Company's current tender offer
for up to $1.005 billion of its toggle notes, which S&P expects it
will meet with proceeds from Grupo Televisa, S.A.B.'s investment,
is set to expire on Jan. 21, 2011.

On Apr. 28, 2011, the TCR related that Moody's assigned a B2
rating to Univision Communications, Inc.'s proposed $600 million
senior secured notes due 2019.  Univision plans to utilize the net
proceeds from the note offering to redeem its $545 million senior
secured notes due 2014 (2014 notes) and fund related transaction
expenses.  Univision's B3 Corporate Family Rating (CFR), B3
Probability of Default Rating, other debt instrument ratings, SGL-
3 speculative-grade liquidity rating and stable rating outlook are
not affected.

The refinancing improves Univision's maturity profile, reduces
refinancing risk related to its 2014 maturities (approximately
$1.1 billion upon completion of the proposed offering), and will
moderately reduce cash interest expense.  Moody's does not expect
the $55 million increase in debt as a result of funding the tender
premium on the 2014 notes to materially alter Univision's current
leverage position or the expected de-leveraging over the next few
years.  Moody's had expected in the existing B3 CFR and stable
rating outlook that Univision would refinance the 2014 notes.

On June 16, 2011, the TCR reported that Fitch Ratings affirmed
Univision Communications, Inc.'s Issuer Default Rating (IDR) at
'B'; Senior secured at 'B+/RR3'; and Senior unsecured at
'CCC/RR6'.  The Rating Outlook is Stable.

The ratings incorporate Fitch's positive view on the U.S. Hispanic
broadcasting industry, given anticipated continued growth in
number and spending power of the Hispanic demographic, which is
confirmed by U.S. census data.  Additionally, Univision benefits
from a premier industry position, with duopoly television and
radio stations in most of the top Hispanic markets, with a
national overlay of broadcast and cable networks.  High ratings
and concentrated Hispanic viewer base provide advertisers with an
effective way to reach the large and growing U.S. Hispanic
population.  Ratings concerns center on the highly leveraged
capital structure and the significant maturity wall in 2017, as
well as the company's significant exposure to advertising revenue.

Univision, headquartered in New York, is the leading Spanish-
language media company in the United States.  Revenue for fiscal
year 2010 was approximately $2.2 billion.


UNO RESTARUANT: Closes Restaurant in Elm Grove

The Company and 152 affiliates filed for Chapter 11 protection on
Jan. 20, 2010 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Lead Case No. 10-10209).  The

$500 million as of the Petition Date.

Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP assisted the Debtors in their
restructuring effort.  CRG Partners Group LLC served as the

noticing and claims agent.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on July 27, 2010, Uno
Restaurant emerged from Chapter 11 pursuant to its plan of
reorganization, confirmed by the Bankruptcy Court on July 6.
Pursuant to the Plan, 100% of the Company's $142 million, 10%
Senior Secured Notes, due February 2011, was converted into
substantially all of the equity of the Company, thereby
eliminating $14.2 million in annual interest payments and reducing
total debt from $176.3 million to approximately $40 million.

In connection with the emergence from Chapter 11, the Company
arranged for $55 million of permanent, long-term exit financing
comprised of a $30 million revolving credit facility, due July
2015, provided by long-standing-lender Wells Fargo Capital
Finance, part of Wells Fargo & Company, and $25 million of new
notes, due February 2016, provided by a majority of the new equity
holders.  The Exit Facility allowed the Company to repay all
outstanding amounts under its former Debtor in Possession Credit
Facility, implement the provisions of the Plan, pay transaction
costs and provide significant liquidity going forward to fund
working capital needs and the Company's growth and investment
plans.

UTEX COMMUNICATIONS: Seeks Relief From Amended Order to File Plan
-----------------------------------------------------------------
On Aug. 30, 2011, UTEX Communications Corp. filed an emergency
motion seeking relief from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Western District of Texas's Amended Order Concerning Plan and
Disclosure Statement dated Oct. 26, 2010 (Docket No. 170) and the
Court's permission for it to file a Disclosure Statement and Plan
of Reorganization.

In the Amended Order, the Bankruptcy Court denied approval of the
Debtor's Disclosure Statement filed on July 1, 2010, and
prohibited any party from filing a disclosure statement and plan
until matters pending before the Texas Public Utility Commission,
principally in TPUC Docket No. 26381, were decided.  In that
matter, UTEX is requesting the approval of a new Interconnection
Agreement ("ICA") between UTEX and AT&T.

The Order extends the Debtor's right to exclusivity until 18
months after the petition date, or Sept. 3, 2011.

The rationale for the plan injunction, as stated in the Order, is
that, until there is a final ruling on TPUC Docket 26381 and
replacement agreement terms are in place, the creditors would
not be able to vote on a plan because the terms of the ICA would
be unknown.

The Award was issued on Jan. 27, 2011.  Further, UTEX believes
that the PUC case has sufficiently progressed to allow Debtor to
present a plan of reorganization.

Thus, Debtor says cause now exists for the Court to grant it
relief from the Amended Order because the core provisions of the
ICA have been ruled on and the TPUC held on April 14, 2011, that
there will be no reconsideration of those terms.

UTEX has therefore sought entry of an interim order by the PUC
approving the core terms of the ICA by a pleading filed on
Aug. 17, 2011.  AT&T almost immediately filed an opposition to the
request for entry of an interim order.  AT&T's goal in opposing
the entry of the interim order, the Debtor avers, is to deprive it
of exclusivity.

UTEX adds that relief from the injunctive provision of the Amended
Order is justified for two reasons:

a. the core elements of the eventual final ruling in Docket 26381
   are known and will not be altered;

b. the Debtor can file a disclosure statement which provides
   adequate information to allow the creditors to cast their votes
   accepting or rejecting the Debtor's plan, and

c. AT&T should not be permitted to deprive UTEX of its exclusivity
   rights by delaying and hindering the entry of a final order.

VITAMINSPICE: Seeks Damages for Involuntary Filing
--------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that VitaminSpice came back with all guns blazing when a
former lawyer for the Company named Jehu Hand and companies he
allegedly controls filed an involuntary Chapter 11 petition in
early August.

The Wayne, Pennsylvania-based Company filed a motion last week to
dismiss the involuntary filing, contending that Hand sought the
bankruptcy to avoid the consequences of his own misconduct.

According to the report, VitaminSpice notes how Mr. Hand filed a
lawsuit against the company.  He filed bankruptcy, the Alleged
Debtor says, to halt his own lawsuit after the company filed
counterclaims for "wide-ranging stock fraud and other misconduct."

If the bankruptcy is dismissed, VitaminSpice says it wants
punitive damages against Hand.

The papers seeking dismissal, the report notes, don't contend that
the company is paying its debt or that Hand's claim is disputed.
Indeed, the Company's own regulatory filing admits there is
substantial doubt about the ability to continue as a going
concern.

The balance sheet for March 31 shows assets of $53,000 against
$11.4 million in debt. In the first quarter, revenue was less than
$1,000. The net loss for the quarter was $555,000.

WALTER NG: Faces Securities Fraud Class Action in California
------------------------------------------------------------
Dan Noyes, writing for KGO, reports that a major class action
lawsuit has been filed in what could turn out to be the largest
securities fraud in state history.  It's a story the ABC7 I-Team
first broke: Thousands of investors are out more than $700
million.

ABC7 reported that the FBI and SEC are investigating, and this
class action lawsuit was filed on Sept. 1 in Alameda Superior
Court.  The lawsuit is being carried out by a law firm out of
Phoenix.

Yoko Oshima is named as a plaintiff in the class action lawsuit.
She says Walter Ng personally guaranteed that he would protect the
investment she made with his real estate funds so she could care
for her 24-year-old autistic daughter, Lisa.

"I told him, this is not just my life, this is my daughter for
future life, and he said, don't worry about it," Ms. Oshima said.

But with Mr. Ng's companies in default, the lawsuit says about
2,800 investors are out more than $700 million.  Ms. Oshima is
frantic now that $450,000 she invested for her daughter's special
needs trust is gone.

"There's a lack of morality," Ms. Oshima said.  "Even the
business, people still have to have morality.  That's my word."

The lawsuit names the Ng Family companies that operate out of the
Lafayette office: Bar-K Inc., RE Loans -- the fund that made real
estate development loans -- and B-4 Partners, who managed the
fund.

The complaint said Walter Ng, his sons Barney and Kelly and Bruce
Horowits "raised funds through the illegal sale of unregistered
securities" and "with the knowing assistance of Defendants Wells
Fargo and (law firm) Greenberg Traurig, engaged in a scheme to
breach their fiduciary duties to the investors in order to prop up
RE Loans and personally enrich themselves and their friends and
business associates."

"It is a very sad case," said class action attorney Greg
Fairbourn.  "A lot of people have been taken advantage of by the
conduct we described in the complaint."

The class action filed by Mr. Fairbourn also names Wells Fargo.
Through its Capital Finance unit, it provided a $50 million line
of credit that was supposed to help keep RE Loans afloat.

Mr. Fairbourn said the allegation they've made is that money was
disbursed to preferred investors -- friends and family members.

"That's the allegation that we've made based on the investigation
that we've done, and we believe that to be accurate,"
Mr. Fairbourn said.

Wells Fargo e-mailed a statement that reads, "The lawsuit against
Wells Fargo Capital Finance is without merit, and we will defend
ourselves against the allegations.  Beyond that, we cannot provide
any further comment at this time."

There was also no comment from several major players in this
story.  Kelly Ng had no comment when ABC7 stopped by a recent Cal
Men's Volleyball Team, and Walter Ng declined to speak with ABC7
when ABC7 caught up with him after a hearing in his bankruptcy
case.

Barney Ng tried to deflect the blame to his father, brother and
Bruce Horowitz when reached by phone on Sept. 1, saying "I didn't
make decisions, and didn't have the authority to make decisions,
on how the investors' money was handled."

Barney Ng was the one who went out to find projects in which to
invest.

There was also no comment from law firm Greenberg Traurig.

Cal told ABC7 on Sept. 1 that Kelly Ng's contract has not been
renewed with the school and he is no longer a coach there.  Cal
officials called this case a "distraction for the students."

Walter Ng filed for Chapter 11 protection in the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court the Northern District of California (Case No. 11-45175) on
May 12, 2011.

WELLCARE HEALTH: Moody's Assigns 'B1' to Planned Bond Issuance
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has assigned a B1 subordinated debt
rating to WellCare Health Plans, Inc.'s $112.5 million planned
bond issuance. The bonds are being issued as part of an agreement
to settle a consolidated class action lawsuit against the company.
The outlook on the rating is stable.

RATINGS RATIONALE

Moody's said that the B1 debt rating reflects its standard
notching practice of rating holding company subordinated debt four
notches below the insurance financial strength (IFS) rating of a
downstream operating company (i.e., WellCare of Florida, Inc., IFS
at Baa3/stable). The subordinated bonds will have an aggregate
face value of $112.5 million, with a fixed coupon of 6% and a
maturity date of December 31, 2016. WellCare has the right to
redeem the bonds at 102% of face value during the first year and
at 100% of face value thereafter. The notes are subordinated in
right of payment to the prior payment in full of all current and
future senior debt.

The rating agency said the ratings of WellCare and its operating
company are supported by the organization's financial profile,
characterized by adequate and consistent operating earnings, and
strong cash flow including a stream of unregulated cash flows from
management fees. However, the ratings also reflect a somewhat
weaker business profile, largely the result of the nature of the
company's business, which is exclusively focused on the Medicare
and Medicaid segments with over 70% of its medical membership
concentrated in Florida and Georgia.

Moody's commented that the ratings reflect the company having
sufficiently addressed the financial impact of the legal
proceedings related to the recently completed investigations by
Federal and State of Florida agencies as well as the financial
improvement and stability shown by WellCare's Medicaid and
Medicare businesses. WellCare's new management team has
successfully navigated the company past these investigation and
litigation issues and successfully retained all its Medicaid
contracts. In addition, Moody's noted that the Kentucky Cabinet
for Health and Family Services recently selected WellCare of
Kentucky as one of four insurers to serve the state's new Medicaid
program.

This rating was assigned with a stable outlook:

WellCare Health Plans, Inc. -- subordinated debt rating at B1.

The principal methodology used in rating WellCare was Moody's
Rating Methodology for U.S. Health Insurance Companies published
in May 2011.

WellCare Health Plans, Inc. is headquartered in Tampa, Florida.
For the first six months of 2011, the company reported
approximately $3.0 billion in total revenue. As of June 30, 2011
shareholders' equity was $936 million and total medical membership
(excluding Medicare Part D) was approximately 1.4 million members.

Moody's insurance financial strength ratings are opinions about
the ability of insurance companies to punctually pay senior
policyholder claims and obligations.


WILLIAMS LOVE: Expects to Pay Creditors in Full If Given Time
-------------------------------------------------------------
Jeff Manning at OregonLive.com reports that the Portland law firm
Williams, Love, O'Leary & Powers filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy,
victim of a near-term cash flow crunch.

According to the report, the firm made its name representing
individuals in high-stakes legal battles against giant
pharmaceutical companies in medical product liability cases.  It
is a lead firm in hundreds of lawsuits filed by women who claim
hormone therapy intended to alleviate menopause side effects
actually caused breast cancer or other negative health effects.

The report says those settlements could be worth millions of
dollars to the plaintiffs and their lawyers.  But those potential
paydays are a year or more off, said Michael Williams, a partner
in the firm.

The report notes, meanwhile, the firm's lender, Sterling Bank, is
expecting payments on its $4 million debt.  "We can't pay the bank
back what it wants and continue to operate," Williams said.
Filing Chapter 11 bankruptcy "is the only way we could make the
bank wait."

Mr. Manning relates that the firm says it will be able to survive
and pay its creditors in full if it is granted the time and
protection from creditors, allowing it to bring some of its cases
to conclusion.

The report notes that the financial issues at Williams Love are
more a function of its unusual practice than the economy.  The
firm specializes in protracted, expensive legal battles against
big Pharma.

Upon retention, the firm, assist the Debtor in connection with:

   (1) any and all appeals and matters relating to such appeals
       stemming from or otherwise relating to the Consolidated

   Linda M. Jones, Esq.               $295
   Troy L. Booher, Esq.               $295
   Elizabeth Kennedy, Esq.            $200

ZJB is not a creditor, an equity security holder, or an insider of
the Debtor.  ZJB does not have any connection with any insider of
the Debtor or any insider of an insider of the Debtor outside of
the instant proposed engagement of ZJB.  ZJB also does not
have any connection with any known creditor or other party in
interest of the Debtor.

ZJB is not and was not an investment banker for any outstanding
security of the Debtor.  ZJB has not been within three years prior
to the Petition Date an investment banker for a security of the
Debtor, or an attorney for such investment banker in
connection with the offer, sale or issuance of any security of the
Debtor.

Neither ZJB nor anyone employed by ZJB is, nor was, within two
years prior to the Petition Date, a member, manager, director,
officer, or employee of the Debtor or of any investment banker for
any security of the Debtor.


Although not a requirement given that ZJB will be employed under
11 U.S.C. Section 327(e), ZJB is a "disinterested person" as that
term is defined in section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code.

                         ASC Utah Opposes

ASC Utah, LLC, a secured creditor holding a claim in excess of
$60 million in the above-captioned bankruptcy case, submitted an
opposition to the Application.

ASC Utah points out that in the Application, the Debtor represents
that the source of the proposed retainer of $75,000 to Zimmerman
Jones Booher LLC will be "the funds to be lent to the Debtor by
Canyon Mountain" and further represents that it will seek the
approval of the loan from Canyon Mountain by filing a motion for
approval of postpetition financing.

Contrary to the Debtor's representation, however, the DIP
Financing Motion states that the retainer to ZJB has already been
advanced by Canyon Mountain even before the proposed loan (which
has been opposed by ASCU and the Office of the United States
Trustee) has been approved by the Court.

According to the report, the discrepancy between the
representations in the Application and the DIP Financing Motion
about the timing of the payment of the retainer is consistent with
the Debtor's pattern of misrepresentations and obfuscation.  As
set forth in ASCU's objection to the DIP Financing Motion, the
Debtor and Canyon Mountain have not been truthful to the Court
about Mr. Griswold's continued financial interest in the Debtor or
about Canyon Mountain's representations regarding funding of the
Debtor's operations.

Accordingly, ASCU believes Canyon Mountain's proposed loan to the
Debtor, including the advance of the retainer to ZJB, should not
be retroactively approved as a postpetition loan with superiority
administrative expense priority status.

Similarly, based on the conflicting representations made by the
Debtor in the Application regarding the payment of the retainer to
ZJB, ASCU respectfully requests that the Court deny approving the
Application until the Debtor provides clarification regarding how
and when Canyon Mountain advanced ZJB's retainer.

WONDER AUTO: Gets of Letter From Nasdaq Hearings Panel
------------------------------------------------------
Wonder Auto Technology, Inc. has received notice that its appeal
hearing with respect to Nasdaq's previously announced decision to
delist the Company's common stock from trading on Nasdaq has been
set for October 6, 2011.  As previously reported, the Company
received a letter from the Listing Qualifications Department of
Nasdaq on August 18, 2011 stating that based on the review of
public documents and information provided by the Company, Nasdaq's
staff  determined that the continued listing of the Company's
securities on Nasdaq is no longer warranted.  Following the
receipt of that letter, the Company requested an oral hearing
before the Panel to appeal the Staff's determination.

In addition, Nasdaq has notified the Company that the trading halt
on the Company's securities will be lifted as of the opening of
the market on September 12, however, trading of the common stock
of the Company will remain suspended on Nasdaq pending the results
of the delisting hearing.  As a result of the lifting of the
trading halt, the Company's common stock will become eligible to
be traded on the over-the-counter bulletin board commencing
September 12, 2011.

The Company's Audit Committee is still conducting its
investigation into certain alleged related-party transactions and
other matters as well as whether the Company's financial
statements have been manipulated and falsified by former senior
corporate officers.  The Company is working diligently to complete
its delinquent Forms 10-K and 10-Q and expects the reports to be
completed as soon as possible following the conclusion of the
Investigation. The Company intends to seek relief from the Nasdaq
delisting determination and a further extension of time to file
its delinquent reports.

There is no assurance that the Panel will grant the Company's
request for relief from the delisting determination. If the
Company's request is denied, the Company's securities will be
delisted from Nasdaq.


ZOGENIX INC: Amends 12-Mil. Common Shares Offering on Form S-1
--------------------------------------------------------------
Zogenix, Inc., filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission Amendment No.1 to Form S-1 registration statement
relating to the Company's offer to sell 12,000,000 shares of the
its common stock.  The Company's common stock is listed on the
Nasdaq Global Market under the symbol "ZGNX."  On Sept. 2, 2011,

The Company has granted a 30-day option to the underwriters to
purchase up to 1,800,000 additional shares of the Company's common
stock (15% of the shares sold).

Cowen Healthcare Royalty Partners II, L.P., a current stockholder,
Roger L. Hawley, the Company's Chief Executive Officer, and Ann D.
Rhoads, the Company's Executive Vice President and Chief Financial
Officer, have indicated an interest in purchasing $1.5 million,
$100,000 and $100,000 of shares of the Company's common stock in
this offering, respectively.  However, because indications of
interest are not binding agreements or commitments to purchase,
the underwriters may determine to sell more, less or no shares in

* S&P's Global Corporate Default Tally Rises to 28 in 2011
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its ratings on two
corporate issuers to 'D' last week, raising the 2011 global
corporate default tally to 28, said an article published Friday by
Standard & Poor's Global Fixed Income Research, titled "Global
Corporate Default Update (Sept. 1 - 7, 2011)."

One of the issuers, U.S.-based paper producer NewPage Corp., filed
for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, and the other issuer was
confidential.  The tally of global corporate defaults in 2011 is
slightly less than half the 61 issuers that defaulted by this time
last year.  Regionally, 19 of the defaulters this year were based
in the U.S., three were based in New Zealand, two were in Canada,
and one each was in the Czech Republic, France, Israel, and
Russia.  Of the total defaulters by this time in 2010, 44 were
U.S.-based issuers, eight were in the other developed region
(Australia, Canada, Japan, and New Zealand), seven were from the
emerging markets, and two were European issuers.

Twelve of this year's defaults were due to missed interest or
principal payments and six were due to distressed exchanges --
both among the top reasons for default in 2010.  Of the remaining
10, five issuers defaulted after they filed for bankruptcy,
another two were forced into liquidation as a result of regulatory
actions, the eighth had its banking license revoked by its
country's central bank, the ninth was appointed a receiver, and
the 10th was confidential.  Of the defaults in 2010, 28 defaults
resulted from missed interest or principal payments, 25 resulted
from Chapter 11 and foreign bankruptcy filings, 23 from distressed
exchanges, three from receiverships, one from regulatory
directives, and one from administration.

Standard & Poor's expects the U.S. corporate trailing 12-month
speculative-grade default rate to decline to 1.6% by June 2012.  A
total of 25 issuers would need to default from July 2011 to June
2012 to reach this forecast.  By comparison, the default rate in
June 2011 is 2.25%.  In the 12 months ended June 2011, 32
speculative-grade issuers defaulted.  Less than one-third of those
defaults occurred in the first half of 2011.  Improved lending
conditions and greater availability of capital, even for low-rated
issuers, continue to temper our default expectations in the short
term.  In addition, stronger credit quality, as reflected by fewer
downgrades and lower negative bias, should help companies mitigate
the effects of lackluster economic growth and uncertainty about
domestic and international sovereign funding.

In addition to its baseline projection, S&P forecasts the default
rate in its optimistic and pessimistic scenarios.  In S&P's
optimistic default rate forecast scenario, the economy and the
financial markets improve more than expected, and, as a result,
S&P would expect the default rate to be 1.2% (18 defaults in the
next 12 months).

On the other hand, if the economic recovery stalls and the
financial markets deteriorate -- which is S&P's pessimistic
scenario -- S&P expects the default rate to be 4% (62 defaults) by
June 2012.  S&P bases its forecasts on quantitative and
qualitative factors that we consider, including, but not limited
to, Standard & Poor's proprietary default model for the U.S.
corporate speculative-grade bond market.  S&P updates its outlook
for the U.S. issuer-based corporate speculative-grade default rate
each quarter after analyzing the latest economic data and
expectations.


* Florida Bank Shuttered; Year's Failures Now 71
------------------------------------------------
The First National Bank of Florida, Milton, Florida, was closed
Friday by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, which
appointed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) as
receiver.  To protect the depositors, the FDIC entered into a
purchase and assumption agreement with CharterBank, West Point,
Georgia, to assume all of the deposits of The First National Bank
of Florida.

The FDIC estimates that the cost to the Deposit Insurance Fund
(DIF) will be $46.9 million. Compared to other alternatives,
CharterBank's acquisition was the least costly resolution for the
FDIC's DIF. The First National Bank of Florida is the 71st FDIC-
insured institution to fail in the nation this year, and the
eleventh in Florida. The last FDIC-insured institution closed in
the state was Lydian Private Bank, Palm Beach, on August 19, 2011.

                  2011 Failed Banks List

The FDIC was appointed as receiver for the closed banks.  To
protect the depositors, the FDIC entered into a purchase and
assumption agreement with various banks that agreed to assume the
deposits of most of the closed banks.  The FDIC also entered into
loss-share transactions on assets bought by the banks.

For this year, the failed banks are:

In 2010, there were 157 failed banks, compared with 140 in 2009
and just 25 for 2008.

A complete list of banks that failed since 2000 is available at:

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

                     865 Banks in Problem List

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.'s list of "problem" banks fell
in the second quarter 2011 for the first time since 2006 as the
industry's income improved and costs tied to bad loans eased.  The
confidential list of banks deemed at greater risk of collapse
shrank by 23 firms to 865, the FDIC said Aug. 23 in its Quarterly
Banking Profile.  The last time that happened was the third
quarter of 2006 before the credit crisis began, the agency said.

The FDIC defines "problem" institutions as those with financial,
operational or managerial weaknesses that threaten their
viability.

The deposit insurance fund, which protects customer holdings up to
$250,000 per account in the event of a failure, was positive for
the first time in two years, the agency said.  The fund rose to
$3.9 billion, because of fewer expected bank failures and
assessment revenue, the agency said.  The FDIC insures deposits at
more than 7,500 banks and thrifts.

                Problem Institutions        Failed Institutions

Federal regulators assign a composite rating to each financial
institution, based upon an evaluation of financial and operational
criteria.  The rating is based on a scale of 1 to 5 in ascending
order of supervisory concern.  "Problem" institutions are those
institutions with financial, operational, or managerial weaknesses
that threaten their continued financial viability. Depending upon
the degree of risk and supervisory concern, they are rated either
a "4" or "5."  The number and assets of "problem" institutions are
based on FDIC composite ratings.  Prior to March 31, 2008, for
institutions whose primary federal regulator was the OTS, the OTS
composite rating was used.


* 2011 Large Chapter 11 Cases Increase to 48
--------------------------------------------
The number of Chapter 11 cases with assets in excess of $100
million increased to five in August, compared to only three in
July, or an increase of about 40%.

For the first eight months of 2011, there were a total of 48
companies with assets of at least $100 million that filed for
Chapter 11 bankruptcy, or an average of six mega cases per month.
In comparison, during the first eight months of 2010, there were a
total of 71 mega cases, or an average of about 9 per month.  The
decrease in the number of mega cases for the first eight months in
2011 as compared to 2010 was about 31%.

For fiscal year 2010, there were a total of 105 mega cases, or an
average of about 9 per month.

There was no Chapter 11 filing with assets in excess of $1 billion
that filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in August 2011.
In comparison, in August of last year, there was one company that
filed for Chapter 11 with assets in excess of $1 billion -- Boston
Generating LLC.

Through Aug. 31, 2011, only two companies with assets in excess of
$1 billion have filed for Chapter 11 protection -- Borders Group
and MSR Resort Golf Course -- both of which filed in February.
During the first eight months of 2010, there were a total of three
companies that filed for Chapter 11 with assets in excess of $1
billion.  In addition to Boston Generating LLC which filed for
Chapter 11 in August 2010, Innkeepers USA Trust and Protech
Holdings LLC filed for Chapter 11 in July 2010.

The largest Chapter 11 filing for August 2011 was by Marlboro,
Mass.-based Evergreen Solar, Inc., which filed on Aug. 15, with
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware, Case No.
11-12590, before Judge Mary F. Walrath.  The Company's balance
sheet at April 2, 2011, showed $373.97 million in assets, $455.51
million in total liabilities, and a stockholders' deficit of
$81.53 million.

Evergreen Solar develops, manufactures and markets String Ribbon
solar power products using its proprietary, low-cost silicon wafer
technology.  The Company's patented wafer manufacturing technology
uses significantly less polysilicon than conventional processes.
Evergreen Solar's products provide reliable and environmentally
clean electric power for residential and commercial applications
globally.

In conjunction with the Chapter 11 filing, Evergreen Solar entered
into a restructuring support agreement with certain holders of
more than 70% of the outstanding principal amount of the Company's
13% convertible senior secured notes.  As part of the bankruptcy
process the Company will undertake a marketing process and will
permit all parties to bid on its assets, as a whole or in
groups.  An entity formed by the supporting noteholders, ES
Purchaser, LLC, entered into an asset purchase agreement with the
Company to serve as a "stalking-horse" and provide a "credit-bid"
pursuant to the Bankruptcy Code for assets being sold.

The second largest Chapter 11 filing was by Merced Falls Ranch
LLC, which filed on Aug. 16, 2011, with the Bankruptcy Court for
the Eastern District of California in Fresno, Case No. 11-19212,
before Judge W. Richard Lee.  Merced Falls Ranch listed total
assets of $439,670,200 and total liabilities of $12,465,503.

Merced Falls Ranch owns 7,612 acres of pasture land in Merced
County, California.

The next largest Chapter 11 filing was by ShengdaTech Inc., which
sought Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on Aug. 19, 2011, from
creditors with the Bankruptcy Court for the District of Nevada,
Case No. 11-52649, before Judge Bruce T. Beesley.

The Shanghai-China based company said in its bankruptcy filing it
would fire all of its officers and restructure to try to recover
from an accounting scandal.  The Company disclosed $295.4 million
in assets and $180.9 million in debt as of Sept. 30, 2011.

Headquartered in Shanghai, China, ShengdaTech makes nano-
precipitated calcium carbonate for the tire industry.  ShengdaTech
converts limestone into nano-precipitated calcium carbonate (NPCC)
using its proprietary and patent-protected technology.  NPCC
products are increasingly used in tires, paper, paints, building
materials, and other chemical products.  In addition to its broad
customer base in China, the Company currently exports to
Singapore, Thailand, South Korea, Malaysia, India, Latvia and
Italy.

Otero County Hospital Associates, Inc., filed for Chapter 11
protection on Aug. 16, 2011, with the Bankruptcy Court for the
District of New Mexico, Case No. 11-13686, before Judge Robert H.
Jacobvitz.  The Company listed $124.19 million in total assets and
$40.51 million in total liabilities.  The Alamogordo, New Mexico-
based nonprofit developed and operates the Gerald Champion
Regional Medical Center, a not-for-profit 99-bed acute care
facility located in Alamogordo, N.M.

William Morgan Hay, CFO, said in a court filing that since June
2010, GCRMC, along with QHR and a number of other defendants, has
been subject to an onslaught of personal injury lawsuits stemming
from a series of procedures performed at the Hospital between 2006
and 2008.  In total, 47 individuals who underwent such procedures
have filed the Lawsuits.  Only two physicians, one operating
independently and one employed by the Hospital, were involved in
some manner with the Lawsuits.  Currently, neither of the
physicians implicated in the Lawsuits have any affiliation with
GCRMC.  Although the physicians are no longer with GCRMC, GCRMC's
potential exposure in connection with the Lawsuits remains and
poses a significant threat to its ability to effectively carry out
its mission.  As the sole community healthcare provider in Otero
County, the pendency of the Lawsuits has affected GCRMC's ability
to raise the funds necessary to continue to meet the current and
future healthcare needs of the community.

GCRMC disputes the claims asserted in the Lawsuits, but recognizes
that it faces significant uncertainty as well as administrative
and financial burdens in defending the Lawsuits.

M Waikiki LLC filed for Chapter 11 protection in Aug. 31, 2011,
with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Hawaii
(Honolulu), case number 11-02371, before Judge Robert J. Faris.
The Company listed estimated assets and liabilities of $100 to
$500 million.

M Waikiki is a Hawaii limited liability company with its principal
place of business located in San Diego, California.  It is a
special purpose entity, having roughly 75 indirect investors,
which was formed to acquire The MODERN Honolulu, a 353-room luxury
hotel.

The filing follows a court decision granting a temporary
restraining order to allow Marriott International Inc. to resume
its operation of the property.  The Chapter 11 filing now allows M
Waikiki to reaffirm the termination of the management agreement
with Marriott and continue to employ new management at the
property.  M Waikiki LLC had installed new management this weekend
at The MODERN Honolulu, formerly known as the Waikiki Edition.

In August 2011, there was no prepackaged Chapter 11 mega case.
For the first eight months of 2011, 10 of the 48 mega cases
involved a prepackaged Chapter 11 plan as of the Petition Date --
or about 21% of the large Chapter 11 filings.  For fiscal year
2010, a total of 35 prepacks/pre-arranged cases were filed --
about one in every three filings in 2010.

Of the mega cases filed during the first eight months of 2011,
nine were engaged in accommodation and food services, seven each
were in manufacturing and retail trade, six were in information,
and five were into real estate.

Of the August mega cases, one each went to Delaware, Nevada, New
Mexico, Eastern District of California, and Hawaii.  For the first
eight months of 2011, 23 mega-cases went to Delaware and 9 went to
the Southern District of New York.  The rest were distributed
among various bankruptcy courts throughout the U.S.

Lehman Brothers Holding Corp. remains the biggest corporate bust
in history.  Lehman, which filed in 2008, had $639 billion in
total assets and $613 billion in total debts at that time of its
filing.

So far this year, the largest Chapter 11 filing was by MSR Resort
Golf Course LLC, which has $2.2 billion in assets and $1.9 billion
in debt as of Nov. 30, 2010.  MSR Resort Golf Course and its
affiliates own and operate five iconic luxury resort properties
with related real estate properties and amenities.  The resorts
subject to the filings are Grand Wailea Resort and Spa, Arizona
Biltmore Resort and Spa, La Quinta Resort and Club and PGA West,
Doral Golf Resort and Spa, and Claremont Resort and Spa.  MSR and
its affiliates filed for Chapter 11 protection with the Bankruptcy
Court for the Southern District of New York on Feb. 1, 2011, Lead
Case No. 11-10372.


* All Bankruptcy Types Continue Falling in August
-------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that bankruptcies of all types continued falling in
August.

Bankruptcy filings in August came in at the second-lowest rate
this year.  For the month, filings totaled 135,700, or 4.6% below
July's rate, according to data compiled from court records by Epiq
Systems Inc.

Filings in August were 14.8% fewer than the same month last year,
at a daily rate.  Total filings are on pace to come in at about
1.44 million this year, or 7.5% fewer than 2010.

As before, commercial filings are dropping even faster.  In
August, commercial bankruptcy under all chapters were 20% below
August 2010.

Chapter 11 filings, where larger companies reorganize or sell
assets, totaled 918 in August, or 8 percent below the month a year
earlier.

The states with the highest per capita bankruptcies are Nevada,
Georgia and Tennessee, unchanged from July.  Bankruptcies are
declining this year in every state except Delaware, where the
increase is 1%.

There have been 962,300 bankruptcies of all types so far this
year, compared with 1.56 million for all of 2010.  Last year had
the most since 2005, when the all-time record was set at 2.1
million.  Americans in 2005 were filing bankruptcy in advance of
new laws making it more difficult for individuals to cancel debt.

In the last two weeks before the law changed, 630,000 American
sought bankruptcy protection.

* Weil Scores Restructuring Ace from Jones Day
----------------------------------------------
Samuel Howard at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that Weil Gotshal &
Manges LLP announced Wednesday it had scored another rainmaker
from Jones Day to anchor its growing restructuring practice in
London.

Law360 relates that Paul Bromfield is joining the firm with a
practice that includes roles in numerous front-page insolvencies
and complex cross-border restructurings.

"Having additional partner resource in London is key to our goal
of building out the European restructuring team," said head of the
London restructuring practice Adam Plainer.


* Top Judge Pushes for Bankruptcy Venue Reform
----------------------------------------------
Hilary Russ at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that Massachusetts' top
bankruptcy judge told federal lawmakers Thursday that the current
venue selection process -- in which many companies file in
Delaware and New York instead of where they're headquartered --
undermines confidence in the system when creditors and others
struggle to participate in faraway proceedings.

Law360 relates that testifying before a subcommittee of the House
Judiciary Committee about proposed legislation that would reform
the rules governing venue selection, Chief Judge Frank J. Bailey
said other courts around the country were perfectly capable of
handling complicated bankruptcies.


* Bankr. Judge Edward Godoy Gets 14-Year Term of Office
-------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit appointed
Bankruptcy Judge Edward A. Godoy to a 14-year term of office --
through Aug. 31, 2025 -- at Puerto Rico, at Ponce, effective
Sept. 1, 2011.

                           *********

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.
