--------------------------------------------------------------
Steve Urbon at SouthCoastToday.com reports that Abbott Homes --

Massachusetts, to block a foreclosure proceeding.

According to the report, 14 groups of bidders were ready to make

ALERE INC: Moody's Affirms 'B1' Corporate Family Rating
-------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed Alere, Inc.'s Corporate Family
and Probability of Default Ratings at B1. Concurrently, Moody's
assigned a Ba3 rating to the company's proposed $200 million
senior secured term loan B add-on due 2017.  At the same time,
Moody's also downgraded Alere's $250 million revolving credit
facility, $625 million senior secured term loan A and its $925
million senior secured term loan B ratings to Ba3 from Ba2.  The
change in the secured debt ratings reflect Moody's LGD
methodology, which takes into account the greater proportion of
secured debt now residing within the capital structure. The rating
outlook is stable.

Proceeds from the issuance will be used to pay down the company's
outstanding revolver balance of $150 million, cover transaction
fees and expenses and for general corporate purposes.

This is a summary of Moody's rating actions.

Alere, Inc.

Rating Assigned:

$200 million Senior Secured Term Loan B due 2017 at Ba2 (LGD 2,
31%)

Ratings Downgraded:

$250 million Senior Secured Revolver expiring 2016 to Ba3 (LGD 2,
31%) from Ba2 LGD 2, 27%)

$625 million Senior Secured Term Loan A due 2016 to Ba3 (LGD 2,
31%) from Ba2 LGD 2, 27%)

$300 million Senior Secured Term Loan A delayed-draw due 2016 to
Ba3 (LGD 2, 31%) from Ba2 LGD 2, 27%)

$925 million Senior Secured Term Loan B due 2017 to Ba3 (LGD 2,
31%) from Ba2 LGD 2, 27%)

Ratings affirmed/LGD Assessments Revised:

Corporate Family Rating at B1;

Probability of Default Rating at B1;

$250 million Senior Unsecured Notes due 2016 at B2 (LGD 5, 73%)
from LGD 4, 67%)

$400 million Senior Subordinated Notes due 2018 at B3 (LGD 5, 87%)
from LGD 5, 85%)

$400 million Senior Subordinated Notes due 2016 at B3 (LGD 5, 87%)
from LGD 5, 85%)

Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating at SGL-1

In addition, Moody's clarifies that the issuer of the $250 million
Senior Secured Revolver expiring 2016, $625 million Senior Secured
Term Loan A due 2016 , $300 million Senior Secured Term Loan A
delayed-draw due 2016 and $925 million Senior Secured Term Loan B
due 2017 is Alere, Inc. In Moody's original press release
published on June 16, 2011 Moody's incorrectly stated that ratings
for the proposed $2.0 billion Senior Secured Credit Facilities
were assigned under Alere US Holdings, LLC.

RATINGS RATIONALE

Alere's B1 rating is constrained by its relatively high leverage
in the context of an acquisitive growth strategy alongside share
repurchases, ongoing reimbursement pressures on healthcare
providers and technological risk inherent in the highly
competitive medical diagnostics industry. Furthermore, although
clearly diversifying, the strategic rationale for Alere's recent
expansion in health management remains unproven and a comparable
valuation against its peers, resulted in a fourth quarter of 2010
non-cash charge of $1 billion associated with the impairment of
goodwill in the business.

Nevertheless, the ratings are supported by its strong competitive
position within the point-of-care diagnostic tools market, as well
as its solid cash flow generation. The ratings are further
supported by the company's diverse product offering, and a track
record of technological innovation, which positions the company
well to serve hospitals and other healthcare providers.

The stable ratings outlook reflects the company's healthy pipeline
of consumer and diagnostic products and the potential for
continued margin expansion associated with new products and
ongoing efficiency initiatives. The stable outlook incorporates
the assumption that while Alere may incur additional indebtedness
to pursue acquisitions, pro forma adjusted leverage is expected to
be in the 5.0 times range by the end of fiscal 2012.

The ratings could face pressure if Alere's adjusted debt to EBITDA
were to exceed 5.5 times or free cash flow to adjusted debt were
to fall below 5% for a sustained period. Use of incremental debt
in future acquisitions, lower than expected EBITDA, dividend
payments or increased debt-financed stock buyback activities which
bring pro forma metrics to these levels could result in a
downgrade.

Given the company's increased leverage levels and acquisitive
strategy, an upgrade is unlikely in the near term. However,
Moody's would consider an upgrade if the pace of acquisitions
slows considerably from past levels and the company's adjusted
debt to EBITDA declines below 4.0 times and free cash flow to debt
remains at or above 10% on a sustained basis.

The principal methodology used in rating Alere, Inc was the Global
Medical Products & Device Industry Methodology published in
October 2009. Other methodologies used include Loss Given Default
for Speculative-Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada
and EMEA published in June 2009.

Alere, Inc., headquartered in Waltham, Massachusetts, operates in
health management, and professional and consumer diagnostics. The
health management business includes disease management, maternity
management, and wellness.

Diagnostic products focus on infectious disease, cardiology,
oncology, drugs of abuse and women's health. Reported revenues for
the twelve months ended Sept. 30, 2011 were about $2.3 billion.


AMBAC FIN'L: Wins Nod to Employ PwC as Valuation Advisor
--------------------------------------------------------
Ambac Financial Group, Inc., sought and obtained permission from
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York to
employ PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as its accounting and valuation
advisors, nunc pro tunc to Sept. 26, 2011.

As the Debtor's advisor, PwC will provide certain accounting
advisory and valuation services to the Debtor, including, among

      implementation of fresh start accounting, including
      industry standard practices and selection of new
      accounting policies;

(ii) advice and assistance in the Debtor's accumulation of data
      and preparation of various schedules, account analyses and
      reconciliations;

(iii) identification and estimation of the fair value of assets
      and liabilities in accordance with FASB ASC 820; and

(iv) project management advisory services regarding advice on
      development of project plans, status reports and other
      completion risks and interdependencies among the different
      work streams.

The Debtor will pay PwC according to the firm's customary rates:

PwC will also seek reimbursement for reasonable and necessary
expenses incurred.

Bret Griffin, a partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, discloses
that pursuant to the expense sharing and cost allocation agreement
entered into among the Debtor, Ambac Assurance Corporation and
their subsidiaries and affiliates in connection with the Debtor's
Second Amended Plan of Reorganization, effective as of the later
of the effective date of the Plan and the date the Circuit Court
for Dane County, Wisconsin, overseeing the rehabilitation
proceedings of AAC's Segregated Account enters a non-stayed order
approving the Cost Sharing Agreement, AAC will with the Office of
the Commissioner of Insurance, as rehabilitator of the Segregated
Account's consent, reimburse the Debtor for 50% of the fees and
expenses paid to PwC up to a maximum of $1 million.

Mr. Griffin further discloses that on July 7, 2011, the
Rehabilitator filed with the Circuit Court an application seeking
to employ PwC relating to (i) the plan of rehabilitation for the
Segregated Account or possible amendments thereto; (ii) preserving
and quantifying net operating losses; and (iii) the potential
impacts of cancellation-of-indebtedness income and related
planning, structuring and strategies.  The Rehabilitator Services
will be provided by a separate PwC engagement team and, an ethical
wall has been established between these separate PwC engagement
teams to prevent access to information related to each engagement
other than by the relevant engagement team, he assures the Court.

In addition, Mr. Griffin discloses that PwC has provided, and
likely will continue to provide to certain parties in matters
services unrelated to the Debtor's Chapter 11 case, a schedule of
which is available for free at:

Mr. Griffin insists that PwC is a "disinterested person" as the
term is defined under Section 101 (14) of the Bankruptcy Code.

AMBAC FIN'L: Equity Holder Wants Independent Asset Valuation
------------------------------------------------------------
Wolfgang Drogis alleges that Judge Shelley Chapman has the equity
holders already buried in Ambac Financial Group, Inc.'s Chapter 11
case without giving them a chance.

Mr. Drogis referred to the bankruptcy judge's statement in a
report that equity holders are not getting anything in the
Debtor's bankruptcy.  "These folks are frustrated, may not have a
full understanding of the workings of the bankruptcy code," Judge
Chapman said, according to the cited report.

Mr. Drogis insists that pursuant to Section 527 of the Bankruptcy
Code, disclosure is an asset and debt statement required in each
bankruptcy case.  Without this asset/liabilities confrontation,
the Court can not make a fair and equitable decision, he argues.

Mr. Drogis believes that the assets of the Debtor are at least
$20 billion or more.

Accordingly, Mr. Drogis asks Judge Chapman to be fair and
equitable, to decide strictly according to law, and to arrange
for an independent valuation of the Debtor's assets.

AMBAC FIN'L: Equity Holder Asks for Equity Committee
----------------------------------------------------
William Lanza related that on Oct. 15, 2011, he received a
proposal from Rust Consulting to settle any claims against Ambac
Financial Group, Inc., for $0.11 per share.  During the time frame
indicated in the letter, he owned 5,895 shares of AFG common
stock.  The notice provided that if he did not want to participate
in the settlement, he must write to Rust by Sept. 7, 2011.
Otherwise, he will not be able to participate in any litigation or
settlements other than the proposed
$0.11/share settlement.

Mr. Lanza alleged that he received the letter after the
September 7 deadline, thus he was unable to object to the
proposed settlement.  He insisted that this was intentional on
behalf of AFG and Rust Consulting.

Against this backdrop, Mr. Lanza believes that it is imperative
to establish an equity committee on behalf of the shareholders of
the Debtor to receive a more equitable treatment in the Debtor's
Chapter 11 case

Mr. Lanza also objects to the $0.11/share settlement, insisting
that this settlement is a blatant attempt to defraud investors of
their rights.

ANDRONICO'S MARKETS: To Close Telegraph Avenue Store in Berkeley
----------------------------------------------------------------
Bay City News reports that Andronico's said it will close its
Telegraph Avenue store in Berkeley, Calif.

According to the report, the closure is related to the chain's
restructuring after it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy this
August.  Five stores will remain open and "will receive the
company's full attention" as part of a capital improvement plan
expected to begin early next year.

"The closing of the Telegraph Avenue store became necessary
because the property would have been too difficult to bring up to
the standards that our customers expect and deserve," the report
quotes Bill Andronico, a third-generation member of the market's
founding family, as saying.

According to the report, Andronico said the chain is now
financially stable following the sale of the company to Renovo
Capital.

"We have completed a difficult restructuring process, and I am
pleased that we have been able to save the business and in the
process preserve 375 jobs," the report quotes Mr. Andronico as
saying.

                     About Andronico's Markets

Andronico's Markets, Inc., aka Andronico's Community Markets, is
an independent, specialty supermarket operator in the San
Francisco Bay Area.  Founded in 1929, the Company operates seven

(four stores), San Francisco, Los Altos, and San Anselmo.
Andronico's is a California C-corporation, owned by Solano

divided among various Andronico family members.

Andronico's filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. N.D. Calif.
Case No. 11-48963) on Aug. 22, 2011.  Judge Edward D. Jellen
oversees the case.  Attorneys at Murray & Murray, in Cupertino,
Calif., represent the Debtor as counsel.  Bailey, Elizondo &

liabilities as of the Chapter 11 filing.


ATLANTIC & PACIFIC: Has Concessions From All 13 Union Locals
------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co. reached an accord
with its 13 union locals on 34 new collective bargaining
agreements, surmounting the last major obstacle to emerging from
bankruptcy reorganization, the company said in a court filing.

According to the report, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in White
Plains, New York, will hold a hearing on Dec. 5 for approval of
contracts with locals affiliated with the United Food & Commercial
Workers International Union.  Terms of the revised agreements will
be disclosed tomorrow after union members have been briefed by
their leader on what the contracts mean for them, a court filing
said.

Mr. Rochelle recounts that A&P filed a proposed Chapter 11 plan
founded upon a $490 million debt and equity financing announced
this month.  The proposed financing, tentatively approved by the
bankruptcy judge, allows A&P to accept a better offer if one
appears.  New investors sponsoring the plan include Yucaipa Cos.,
Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Mount Kellett Capital Management LP.

According to Mr. Rochelle, holders of convertible notes, 9.125%
senior notes, general unsecured creditors, and landlords are to
split up $40 million.  Landlords who vote for the plan will
receive an additional distribution with the amount still to be
decided.  Holders of second-lien notes will be paid in full.  The
plan requires substantive consolidation, where all claims and
assets are thrown into one pot, in the process ignoring how some
assets and liabilities belong to specific A&P companies.

                 About Great Atlantic & Pacific

BARBETTA LLC: Court Sets Dec. 15 Plan Confirmation Hearing
----------------------------------------------------------
On Oct. 24, 2011, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge J. Rich Leonard granted
conditional approval to the disclosure statement, filed Oct. 18,
2011, explaining Barbetta LLC's Chapter 11 Plan.

The Court fixed Dec. 1, 2011 as the last day for filing and
serving written objections to the disclosure statement.  If no
objections or requests to modify the disclosure statement are
filed on or before that date, the conditional approval of the
disclosure statement will become final.  Any objections to or
requests to modify the disclosure statement will be considered at
the confirmation hearing, which is scheduled for Thursday,
Dec. 15, 2011, at 2:00 p.m.

The Court fixed Dec. 1, 2011, as the last day for filing written
acceptances or rejections of the plan.  The enclosed ballot should
be completed and filed with the plan proponent on or before that
date.

The Court also Dec. 1, 2011, as the last day for filing and
serving written objections to confirmation of the plan.

The Plan, filed Oct. 18, 2011, contemplates a continuation of the
Debtor's business.  In accordance with the Plan, the Debtor
intends to satisfy creditor claims from income earned through
continued operations of leasing its real property.  The Plan
focuses on retaining those Properties that are financially
feasible for the Debtor to maintain as rental properties and
restructuring the obligations secured by such properties.

The Plan designates twelve classes of claims:

Class 1 ? Administrative Costs will be paid in cash and in full,
within 10 days of the Effective Date.  In the event that funds are
not available to pay such administrative class within 10 days of
the Effective Date, each Class 1 claimant agrees to receive
payments over time and will receive payments from the Debtor until
paid in full.  Class 1 Claims are Impaired.

Class 2 ? Ad Valorem Taxes will be paid in quarterly payments over
a period of time not to exceed 5 years from the Petition Date.
Class 2 Claims are unimpaired.

Class 3 ? Tax Claims, if any, are unimpaired.

Creditor claims in Classes 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 are all
impaired under the Plan.  The Plan calls for payment of these
Claims over time.

Claims in Class 11 ? Assumption of Executory Contracts and
Unexpired Leases are unimpaired.  The Debtor assumes all unexpired
leases which have not already expired according to their terms or
which have not been specifically rejected by the Debtor.

Class 12 ? General Unsecured Claims, estimated at $260,363.69 as
of the date of filing of the Plan, will be paid in full, in
quarterly installments of $13,018.18 per quarter, over a period of
5 years.  All payments will be distributed pro rata to allowed
creditors within the Class.

Each creditor with an Allowed General Unsecured Claim will be paid

-----------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed the rating of these ABCP
programs at Prime-1 (sf) during the period November 8, 2011
through November 21, 2011:

BANK OF MONTREAL'S RIDGE TRUST AMENDS EXISTING C$225 MILLION
RENTAL CAR FACILITY

Ridge Trust, a partially supported, multiseller Canadian ABCP
program administered by BMO Nesbitt Burns Inc., a subsidiary of
Bank of Montreal (Aa2/Prime-1/B-), has amended an existing C$225
million rental car facility. The amendments include a $25 million
reduction in the facility limit and a short-term extension of the
termination date.

The transaction is partially supported by a liquidity facility
provided by Prime-1 rated Bank of Montreal. The liquidity facility
will fund for the net book value of the vehicles that are
securitized. Ridge has a single program-level liquidity facility
that is used to support its ABCP.

Ridge does not have any program-level credit enhancement. Ridge
has C$1.448 billion in purchase commitments and C$1.138 billion in
outstanding ABCP.

BARCLAYS' SALISBURY AND SHEFFIELD ADDS $1.182 BILLION INTEREST IN
$2.364 BILLION PRIVATE STUDENT LOAN SECURITIZATION

Salisbury Receivables Company, LLC and Sheffield Receivables
Corp., two partially supported, multiseller ABCP conduits
sponsored by Barclays Bank PLC ("Barclays," rated Aa3/Prime-1/C),
has added a $1.182 billion interest in a $2.364 billion private
student loan facility. Sheffield has a $912.45 million commitment,
while Salisbury has a $270 million commitment.

This transaction is fully supported by a liquidity facility
provided by Prime-1-rated Barclays. The liquidity facility is
sized to cover the principal and interest on the commercial paper
issued to finance the transaction. Barclay's expects to convert
the transaction to partial support in the near future.

With this transaction, Salisbury's program-level credit
enhancement increased by 10% of outstanding ABCP issued to finance
the transaction and Sheffield's program-level credit enhancement
increased by 10% of its portion of the commitment.

HELABA'S OPUSALPHA ADDS EUR 50 MILLION TRADE RECEIVABLE
TRANSACTION

Opusalpha Funding Limited, a partially supported, hybrid ABCP
programme sponsored by Landesbank Hessen-Thueringen ("Helaba",
A1/Prime-1/C-) and administered by Bedell Trust UK Limited (NR),
has added a EUR 50 million transaction to its portfolio. The
transaction is backed by German trade receivable deals originated
in the manufacturing industry.

This transaction is fully supported through a liquidity facility
provided by Helaba, an Irish Branch. The liquidity facility is set
at 102% of the purchase limit and covers the outstanding amount of
assets including all related funding costs without deducting for
default receivables.

At the end of September 2011, Opusalpha had EUR 5 million in
outstanding ABCP and is authorised to issue up to EUR 3 billion of
ABCP. Opusalpha's program-level credit enhancement, which is
provided by Helaba, is at EUR 51.25 million.

NATIXIS' VERSAILLES ADDS $75 MILLION REVOLVING EQUIPMENT FACILITY

Versailles Assets, LLC, a partially supported, multiseller ABCP
conduit sponsored and administered by NATIXIS (Aa3/Prime-1/D+),
New York Branch, has added a $75 million revolving equipment
facility to its portfolio. The facility is backed by small ticket
equipment loans and leases originated by an unrated company.

Transaction-specific credit enhancement is in the form of
subordination, overcollateralization and a non-declining cash
reserve which totals 29.70%. The transaction is partially
supported by a liquidity facility provided by NATIXIS.

Versailles Assets will finance this note by issuing Prime-1 (sf)
rated ABCP to Versailles Commercial Paper, LLC. Versailles
Commercial Paper, in turn, will issue Prime-1 (sf) rated ABCP to
investors in the capital market to purchase the Versailles Assets
ABCP. The liquidity support is at the Versailles Assets level, and
covers any timing mismatch, or liquidity risk, between the
underlying notes and the ABCP issued to Versailles Commercial
Paper. The program-level credit enhancement is at the Versailles
Commercial Paper level.

With this transaction, Versailles' was required to increase its
program-level credit enhancement by 10% of outstanding ABCP
issued. Versailles has $4.41 billion in purchase commitments,
$3.06 billion in ABCP outstanding, and $272 million in program-
level credit enhancement.

RATINGS RATIONALE

Arabella Finance Ltd/Arabella Finance LLC, Salome Funding PLC: The
rating action follows Moody's placing on review for downgrade the
short term rating of UniCredit Bank AG on 16 November, 2011.

Corelux SA/Corelux LLC, Giro Lion Funding Limited: The rating
action follows Moody's downgrading the short term rating of
Bayerische Landesbank to Prime-2 on 16 November 2011.

Compass Securitisation Limited and Compass Securitization LLC: The
rating action on the NCCL series of ABCP reflects the downgrade
WestLB AG (A3 on review uncertain/Prime -2 on review uncertain/E+)
to Prime-2 from Prime-1 on 16 November 2011.

Eliopee Limited: The conduit is not affected by Moody's action to
place the Prime-1 rating of Unicredit SpA on review for downgrade
on 16 November 2011. Unicredit SpA provides liquidity support to
two partially supported transactions within Eliopee. However, the
conduit's EUR 99 million programme-level credit support provided
by BNP Paribas (Aa2 on review/Prime-1/B- on review), mitigates the
link between Unicredit's credit risk and the rating of Eliopee's
ABCP.

Opusalpha Funding Limited: The transaction funded by Opusalpha is
fully supported by transaction-specific liquidity facility. The
liquidity facility covers all risks related to the transaction
(e.g., asset credit risks and seller risks) and is provided by a
Prime-1 bank.

Poseidon Funding Limited/Poseidon Funding Corporation: The rating
action follows Moody's downgrading the short term rating of HSH
Nordbank AG to Prime-2 on 16 November 2011.

Ridge Trust: The assets are performing as expected and the credit
enhancement is intact. A reduction in the facility size, short-
term extension and other amendments are credit neutral.

Salisbury Receivables Company, LLC, Sheffield Receivables Corp.:
The transaction is fully supported by liquidity provided by Prime-
1 rated Barclays.

Versailles Assets LLC and Versailles Commercial Paper, LLC: The
transaction is similar in asset quality and enhancement to term
transactions rated by Moody's issued by the same originator. The
liquidity funding is consistent with the asset analysis.
Furthermore, the program-level credit enhancement exceeds the size
of the transaction.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was "Moody's
Approach to Rating Asset-Backed Commercial Paper" published in
February 2003. Please see the Credit Policy page on www.moodys.com
for a copy of this methodology.

Moody's monitors and analyzes ABCP programs on an ongoing basis. A

Bon Secour Partners, LLC, notified U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of Texas that it has reached an agreement with
the U.S. Trustee for Region 6 in relation to the Trustee's amended
motion to dismiss the Debtor's case.

On Aug. 31, 2011, William T. Neary, the U.S. Trustee, related that
pursuant to Court-approved stipulation between the Debtor and its
principal secured lender, Hancock Bank, the terms of the secured
note is restructured the terms, so long as the Debtor makes
payments on the promissory note.  The Trustee noted that the
Debtor appeared to be delinquent on its payments to Hancock Bank.

According to the Trustee, as per the Debtor's June 2011, operating
report, the Debtor only had $115 as of June 30, 2011, which shows

deadlines for confirmation past the Dec. 30, deadline or otherwise

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Boomerang Systems, Inc., on Nov. 18, 2011, issued to subscribers
6% convertible promissory notes due on Nov. 18, 2016, in the
aggregate principal amount of approximately $1.35 million and
warrants to purchase common stock of the Company, par value $.001
per share in a private placement for which the Company received
cash proceeds of approximately $1.25 million and the cancellation
of approximately $100,000 of indebtedness.  For each $100,000
invested, a Subscriber was issued a $100,000 principal amount Note
and Warrants to purchase 23,530 shares of the Company's Common
Stock.  The Securities were issued as a part of a larger offering
in which the Company raised an aggregate amount of approximately
$3.95 million.

The Notes are convertible into Common Stock at $4.25 per share,
subject to weighted average adjustment for issuances of common
stock or common stock equivalents below the Conversion Price,
subject to certain exceptions.  Interest accrues on the Notes at
6% per annum.  Interest is payable quarterly, commencing on
Dec. 31, 2011, at the Company's option, interest may be payable
in: (i) cash or (ii) shares of the Common Stock.

The Warrants are exercisable at $4.25 per share, subject to
weighted average adjustment for issuance below the exercise price,

the average trading volume of the Company's Common Stock during at
least five of the 10 consecutive trading days immediately
preceding the date of the notice of exercise is at least 10,000
shares, and will be based upon the average of the last sale price
of the Common Stock during the five consecutive trading days prior
to the notice of exercise.  In certain instances, a holder will
not be permitted to exercise the Warrant if such exercise would
result in such holder's total ownership of the Company's Common
Stock exceeding 4.9%.  The Warrants expire on Nov. 18, 2016.

the Subscribers.  Pursuant to the registration rights agreement,
the Company agreed to file a registration statement within 90 days
after the closing date of the Offering to register for resale the
shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Notes and
exercise of the Warrants and Placement Agent Warrants.

On November 18, 2011, the Company issued the Notes convertible
into an initial aggregate amount of approximately 317,652 shares
of Common Stock, Warrants to purchase an initial aggregate amount
of 317,652 shares of Common Stock and Placement Agent Warrants to
purchase an initial amount of 27,293 shares of Common Stock.

The Company maintains that the issuance of these securities is
exempt under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, in reliance
upon the provisions of Section 4(2) and/or Regulation D
promulgated thereunder as a transaction by an issuer not involving
a public offering.  No underwriters were employed in the
transaction.  The securities will be deemed restricted securities
for purposes of the Securities Act.

BORDERS GROUP: Negative Effect on Agree's Results Continue
----------------------------------------------------------
Agree Realty Corporation relates that Borders Group, Inc.
negatively affected its operating results for the quarter ended
September 30, 2011, and will continue to negatively affect its
future operating results due to the anticipated closure of the
Borders corporate headquarter location, according to Agree's
November 4, 2011 Form 10-Q filing with the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission for the quarter ended September 30, 2011.

In September 2011, six of Agree Realty's properties formerly
leased to Borders were closed and the leases rejected,
representing $2.4 million of annualized base rent at June 30,
2011.  The locations of the six stores were Ann Arbor, Michigan,
Columbia and Germantown, Maryland, Norman, Oklahoma, and two
locations in Omaha, Nebraska.  The property in Columbia,
Maryland, was assigned to Books-A-Million.  As of September 30,

recognized various non-cash items amounting to net charges of
($5,440,000) related to the Borders properties.  These included
non-cash impairment charges of $13,500,000, offset by non-cash
deferred revenue recognition of $5,700,000 which is included in
minimum rents and a non-cash gain on extinguishment of debt of
$2,360,000.

The Company has two former Borders properties under contract to
sell for an aggregate sales price of $4.6 million.

location, there will be uncertainty in determining the ultimate
impact on our operations. We have been actively marketing all of
the Borders locations for potential re-tenanting or disposition,"
says Agree Realty.

CHRYSLER LLC: Daimler AG Fends Off Suit by Creditors
----------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that unsecured creditors of Old Chrysler won't be
receiving anything on account of the claims against the former
carmaker unless they can convince the U.S. Circuit Court of
Appeals to reverse unfavorable rulings by two lower court judges.

U.S. District Judge Denise Cote on Nov. 22 upheld dismissal of the
creditors' lawsuit against the automaker's former owner Daimler
AG.  Judge Cote was upholding a ruling in May when U.S. Bankruptcy
Judge Arthur J. Gonzalez dismissed the creditors' trust's second
attempt at crafting a complaint against the German automaker.

Mr. Rochelle recounts that the liquidating Chapter 11 plan for Old
Chrysler, now formally named Old Carco LLC, was structured so
unsecured creditors would receive nothing out of bankruptcy aside
from recovery in the Daimler suit, and then only if the recovery
were more than $25 million.

Mr. Rochelle notes that with the suit twice dismissed, creditors'
only hope is with another appeal, this time to the U.S. Court of
Appeals for the Second Circuit in Manhattan.

The suit alleged that Daimler, Old Chrysler's former owner,
stripped out the automaker's most valuable assets before the
company was sold in 2007 to Cerberus Capital Management LP.

                          About Chrysler

Chrysler Group LLC, formed in 2009 from a global strategic
alliance with Fiat Group, produces Chrysler, Jeep(R), Dodge, Ram
Truck, Mopar(R) and Global Electric Motorcars (GEM) brand vehicles
and products.  Headquartered in Auburn Hills, Michigan, Chrysler
Group LLC's product lineup features some of the world's most
recognizable vehicles, including the Chrysler 300, Jeep Wrangler
and Ram Truck.  Fiat will contribute world-class technology,
platforms and powertrains for small- and medium-sized cars,
allowing Chrysler Group to offer an expanded product line

Chrysler LLC and 24 affiliates on April 30, 2009, sought Chapter
11 protection from creditors (Bankr. S.D.N.Y (Mega-case), Lead
Case No. 09-50002).  Chrysler hired Jones Day, as lead counsel;
Togut Segal & Segal LLP, as conflicts counsel; Capstone Advisory
Group LLC, and Greenhill & Co. LLC, for financial advisory
services; and Epiq Bankruptcy Solutions LLC, as its claims agent.
Chrysler has changed its corporate name to Old CarCo following its
sale to a Fiat-owned company.  As of December 31, 2008, Chrysler
had $39,336,000,000 in assets and $55,233,000,000 in debts.
Chrysler had $1.9 billion in cash at that time.

In connection with the bankruptcy filing, Chrysler reached an
agreement with Fiat SpA, the U.S. and Canadian governments and
other key constituents regarding a transaction under Section 363
of the Bankruptcy Code that would effect an alliance between
Chrysler and Italian automobile manufacturer Fiat.  Under the
terms approved by the Bankruptcy Court, the company formerly known
as Chrysler LLC on June 10, 2009, formally sold substantially all
of its assets, without certain debts and liabilities, to a new
company that will operate as Chrysler Group LLC.

Fiat has a 20% equity interest in Chrysler Group.

The U.S. and Canadian governments provided Chrysler with
$4.5 billion to finance its bankruptcy case.  Those loans are to
be repaid with the proceeds of the bankruptcy estate's
liquidation.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on June 6, 2011,

Probability of Default Rating, to 'Caa2' from 'Caa3'.  The upgrade
reflects a decrease in Claire's probability of default given that
the company can now fully cover its interest expense.  This is due
to earnings improvement from solid comparable store sales growth,
improved merchandise margins, and continued expense discipline.


CRYSTALLEX INT'L: Informed of TSX Listing Review
------------------------------------------------
Crystallex International Corporation reported that it has received
a letter from the Toronto Stock Exchange regarding Crystallex's
eligibility for continued listing on the TSX.

On Oct. 5, 2011, the Company received a letter from the Compliance
and Disclosure department of the TSX requesting that the Company
provide information regarding its current operating activities as
part of a fact-gathering process related to meeting the TSX's
continuous listing requirements.  The letter stated that if the
TSX determines that the Company has discontinued a substantial
portion of its business, the Company will be required to meet the
original listing requirements of the TSX.  If the Company fails to
provide an acceptable plan to the TSX of how it intends to meet
the OLR in the short term, the TSX will initiate a delisting
review. On Nov. 11, 2011, the Company provided its response and a
plan to the TSX regarding the Company's efforts to maintain
compliance and continue its listing on the TSX.

On Nov. 23, 2011, Crystallex received a letter from the TSX
advising the Company that the TSX was reviewing the eligibility
for continued listing on TSX of the common shares of the Company
pursuant to Part VII of the TSX Company Manual, under the
Expedited Review Process as described in Section 707(b) of the TSX
Company Manual.  The Continued Listing Committee of the TSX has
scheduled a meeting for Dec. 5, 2011, to consider whether or not
to suspend trading in and delist the common shares of the Company.

There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to meet
the OLR and may be delisted.  Management is evaluating alternative
listing options.  Crystallex shares trade in the US on the OTCQB
market.

Based in Toronto, Canada, Crystallex International Corporation
(TSX: KRY) (NYSE Amex: KRY) -- http://www.crystallex.com/-- is a
Canadian-based company, which has been granted the Mine Operating
Contract to develop and operate the Las Cristinas gold properties
located in Bolivar State, Venezuela.

The Company also reported a net loss and comprehensive loss of
US$33.71 million for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2011,
compared with a net loss and comprehensive loss of
US$27.66 million for the same period during the prior year.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2011, showed
US$19.77 million in total assets, US$115.07 million in total
liabilities and a US$95.29 million total shareholders' deficiency.

As at Sept. 30, 2011, the Company had negative working capital of
$92.6 million, including cash and cash equivalents of $7.6
million.  Most of this working capital amount is the obligation to
repay the Noteholders the principal amount of the $100 million
notes payable due on Dec. 23, 2011.  Management estimates that its
existing cash and cash equivalents and expected proceeds from
additional equipment sales will be sufficient to meet its on-going
requirements through 2012 assuming either a settlement or
refinancing of the notes; however, without receipt of additional
sources of financing, will not be sufficient to pay the notes.
The unilateral cancellation of the MOC by CVG and the subsequent
arbitration claim may impact on the Company's ability to raise
financing.  These material uncertainties raise substantial doubt
as to the ability of the Company to meet its obligations as they
come due and, accordingly, as to the ultimate appropriateness of
the use of accounting principles applicable to a going concern.

million of total net revenue for the nine months ended Sept. 30,
2011, compared with a net loss of $31.21 million on $31.93 million
of total net revenue for the same period a year ago.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2011, showed
$7.96 million in total assets, $42.54 million in total
liabilities, and a $34.58 million total stockholders' deficit.

                        Bankruptcy Warning

During the third quarter, the Company closed two private offerings
of subordinated convertible promissory notes to accredited
investors, totaling $3.2 million with a commitment for another
$2.0 million.  The Company believes, but cannot insure, that the
$5.2 million will be sufficient to permit the Company to continue
to operate until it can secure the additional financing that it
requires to continue to operate as a going concern and to repay
the approximately $11.7 million of debt owed to GR Match, LLC, due
on March 31, 2012.  The accompanying financial statements have
been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going
concern; however, if additional financing is not secured, it would
raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as
a going concern.

The Company is presently engaged in active discussions with
existing and prospective investors to secure additional financing,
but there are no commitments at this time and the Company can give
no assurance that the additional financing can be secured on
favorable terms, or at all.  If the Company cannot obtain
additional financing, the Company may be forced to further curtail
its operations, or possibly be forced to evaluate a sale of the
Company or consider other alternatives, such as bankruptcy.


DAYBREAK OIL: Obtains $600,000 from UBS Bank
--------------------------------------------
Daybreak Oil and Gas, Inc., on Nov. 18, 2011, received an advance
of $600,000 of the previously announced credit line established
with UBS Bank USA pursuant to that certain Credit Line Agreement
dated Oct. 24, 2011.

With the approval of the Company's Board of Directors, the
Company's President and Chief Executive Officer, James F.
Westmoreland personally guaranteed the Credit Line.

This Credit Line was completed in two tranches, with an initial
tranche of $250,000, which was completed on Nov. 4, 2011.  The
second tranche of $640,000 created a total credit line of
$890,000.  The terms of the Credit Line are:

   Interest rates are subject to change from time to time in the
   sole discretion of the Firm.

   Reference Rate: 30 day LIBOR

   Stated Rate: 0.249% + 337.50 basis points

The Firm may demand full or partial payment of the Credit Line
obligations, at its sole option and without cause, at any time,
and neither fixed rate advances nor variable rate advances are
extended for any specific term or duration, notwithstanding the
selection of an interest period of any specific duration.  The
Credit Line obligations may be accelerated upon the occurrence of
customary events of default and the Firm may liquidate or sell all
or any part of the collateral securing the Credit Line.

Additionally, the Firm may require the Company to repay all or
part of its obligations under the Credit Line should the value of
the securities in the collateral account decline below the
required collateral maintenance requirements.

The Company used $600,000 of the proceeds from this advance to pay
a portion of the secured loan from Well Works, LLC, in the
principal amount of $750,000.  The Well Works Loan was made
pursuant to a Secured Convertible Promissory Note between the
Company and Well Works, issued in conjunction with the acquisition
by the Company of an additional 16.67% working interest in certain
leases in the Company's East Slopes Project in Kern County,
California.  The Well Works Loan is secured by a Mortgage, Deed of
Trust, Assignment of Production, Security Agreement and Financing
Statement, by the Company in favor of Well Works on the Bear and
Sunday leases located in the East Slopes Project.  The Well Works
Loan was executed on Sept. 17, 2010, and was extended pursuant to
a Loan Extension Agreement dated Sept. 19, 2011, for a period of
30 days.  As compensation for the extension, Daybreak agreed to
pay a fee to Well Works of $50,000 and pay Well Works' legal fees
of $7,000 plus accrued interest of $9,108.

DELPHI CORP: Wells Fargo Defends Relief From Service Orders
-----------------------------------------------------------
Pursuant to Rule 60(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure
and Rule 9024 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure,
Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., successor by merger to Wachovia Bank,
National Association, is asking the Court for relief from an
August 16, 2007 "Sealing Order" and all orders extending the time
for service of the complaint in the adversary proceeding no. 07-
02720.

Under Loan Agreements, Laneko granted and Wachovia Bank held a
security interest in all of Laneko's assets.  Wells Fargo and
Wachovia Bank merged effective December 31, 2008.  In 2005, the
Debtors filed a verified complaint against Laneko in the U.S.
District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan.

The August 16, 2007 Sealing Order authorized the Debtors to file
the adversary complaints under seal and seal the adversary
dockets, but defer service of the summonses and complaints until
March 31, 2008.  On September 30, 2007, the Debtors commenced an
adversary proceeding against Wells Fargo and Laneko by filing the
complaint under seal.  The Sealed Complaint sought to recover an
alleged preferential transfer from Wells Fargo and Laneko under
Section 547 of the Bankruptcy Code.

"After extorting a hostage payment from the Debtors for
$1,860,000 during the preference period, Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.,
as successor to Wachovia Bank, National Association, has
regrettably and disingenuously portrayed itself a victim who has
been unfairly 'swept along' in this bankruptcy proceeding without
proper notice in purported deprivation of its constitutional
rights," argues Cynthia J. Haffey, Esq., at Butzel Long PC, in
Detroit, Michigan, counsel to the Reorganized Debtors.

As the Court recognized in entering the August 16, 2007 order
sealing the preference actions and extending the time for service
of complaints, the notice that Wells Fargo now -- more than four
years later -- claims should have been provided then was not
required to be provided at that time, Ms. Haffey contends.  She
insists that the Debtors fully and properly complied with the
Preservation Order, and did serve that order on Wells Fargo when
it served the summons and complaint.  The Debtors also served
Wells Fargo with each and every subsequently filed motion to
extend the time to serve the preference actions, as well as any
related orders, she notes.  In spite of this, Wells Fargo failed
to file any motion asserting any putative notice arguments
relating to the Sealing Order until July 20011, she points out.

Ms. Haffey avers that Wells Fargo's Motion is untimely because it
was not filed within 180 days of the entry of the July 30, 2009
order confirming the Modified First Amended Joint Plan of
Reorganization as required by Section 1144 of the Bankruptcy
Code.  Thus, Wells Fargo's attack on the Sealing Order should be
viewed as an attack on the Plan Modification Order, and was
required to be filed by January 26, 2010 or within 180 days of
the Plan Modification Order, she asserts.

Ms. Haffey avers that even if Rule 60 of the Federal Rule of
Civil Procedure applies, Wells Fargo's Motion should still be
denied because Wells Fargo has not, and cannot, meet the
stringent requirements of that Rule to obtain the drastic relief
it seeks -- dismissal of Debtors' preference action.  Among other
things, there has been no due process violation because the
Sealing Order has not deprived Wachovia of any liberty or
property interest, she insists.  She further contends that Wells
Fargo's 3 1/2 year delay in bringing its motion is completely
unjustified.  Wells Fargo has not, and cannot, meet the
"exceptional circumstances" required for a relief, she maintains.

                    Wells Fargo Talks Back

Counsel to Wells Fargo, Mark D. Silverschotz, Esq., at Reed Smith
LLP, in New York, insists that the Sealing Motion clearly
affected Wells Fargo and Laneko Engineering, Inc., prospective
defendants, since the Debtors clearly intended to sue them, yet
the Sealing Motion was not served upon them.

Mr. Silverschotz asserts that the Court is presented with certain
legal questions because the material operative facts are not in
dispute.  These questions are:

(a) Were the Debtors required to provide Wells Fargo with notice
   of the Sealing Motion.  Wells Fargo has conclusively
   demonstrated that they were parties-in-interest materially
   affected by the Sealing Motion entitled to notice thereof.

(b) Did the factual predicate underlying the Sealing Motion apply
   to Wells Fargo.  The basis for relief articulated by the
   Debtors in the Sealing Motion did not apply to Wells Fargo,
   which was neither a supplier to the Debtors nor engaged in an
   ongoing business relationship with them.

(c) Did Wells Fargo reasonably release its liens and claims,
   resulting in prejudice.  That Wells Fargo released its liens
   on Laneko's property subsequent to the review of the silent
   and misleading docket cannot be seriously disputed.

(d) Did the Service Extension Motions that ostensibly were served
   on Wells Fargo "cure" the consequences of the Debtors'
   failure to serve the Sealing Motion.  Purported service of
   the subsequent Service Extension Motions could have no
   curative effect on the Debtors' prior denial of due process
   to Wells Fargo.

(e) Is Wells Fargo required to employ a Section 1144 attack on
   the Plan Modification Order to seek the relief from the
   Sealing Order and Service Extension Orders it now seeks.  The
   pending Motion does not in any way seek to affect the Plan,
   or its related Confirmation order.

(f) Is Wells Fargo's Motion timely.  The Sealing order is void as
   to Wells Fargo.  The facts provide a sufficiently egregious
   foundation for Rule 60(b) relief.

Subsequent to the expiration of the statute of limitations, and
after it reviewed the docket, Wells Fargo released liens and
claims that would have provided it with a source of indemnity for
any hypothetical liability arising from its loan to Laneko, Mr.
Silverschotz stresses.  Those actions speak directly to the
absence of notice and due process, he points out.  "The Debtors'
failure to serve the Sealing Motion and the deceptive title of
the Sealing Motion and the subsequent Service Extension Motions -
- none of which have titles referring to the sealed nature of the
complaints -- deprived Wells Fargo of due process, to its
material detriment," he insists.

The Court scheduled a hearing to consider Wells Fargo's Motion
for October 24, 2011.  However, as of presstime, no order on the
matter has been entered.


DELPHI CORP: DAL Says Class Price Fixing Suits Without Merit
------------------------------------------------------------
Delphi Automotive LLP said three class action lawsuits filed
before a federal court in Detroit over wire harnesses price-
fixing conspiracy are without merit, Tribune Today reported.

"We believe the allegations are without merit and will seek to
have the cases against Delphi dismissed," Rachelle Valdez,
Delphi's spokesperson, said, Tribune Today relayed.

Suppliers Lear Corp.; Leoni AG; S-Y Systems Technologies GmbH;
Furukawa Electric Co.; Sumitomo Electric Industries Ltd.; and
Yazaki Corp. were also named in the class action lawsuits,
Tribune Today stated, citing The Detroit News.

The companies are accused of conspiring to fix prices and rig
bids for about 10 years starting in January 2000 so that their
auto manufacturer customers paid more for the harnesses,
according to The Detroit News report.

Furukawa said it will plead guilty and pay a fine of $200
million, Tribune Today disclosed.  Three of its executives are
also headed to prison for terms ranging from a year and a day to
18 months, the U.S. Department of Justice announced on
September 29, 2011.

A separate report by Dustin Walsh of the Crain's Detroit Business
related that the U.S. government's probe into the price-fixing in
the U.S. auto supply chain could result in jail time for
executives and fines in potentially billions of dollars, topping
Furukawa's fines, lawyers involved in the investigation stated.

The suppliers involved in the global investigation into alleged
collusion dating back to 2003 include Yazaki North America Inc.;
Denso International America Inc.; and Tokai Rika Group North
America, Mr. Walsh cited.  Japan' Fair Trade Commission also
raised the offices of Furukawa, Sumitomo Electric Industries Ltd.
and Yazaki Corp., Mr. Walsh stated.  The European Commission
conducted similar unannounced inspections of the European offices
of TRW Automotive Inc. and Lear Corp., according to Crain's
Detroit Business.

Besides Furukawa, all the other companies are being investigated
but have yet to be charged, Crain's Detroit Business stated.

Yazaki accounts for nearly 30% of the global wire harness market
followed by Sumitomo with 24% share and Delphi with 16.7% global
market share, the report disclosed.

If Yazaki is found guilty of wrongdoing, its fine could be more
than $1.7 billion for 2010 alone, Crain's Detroit Business wrote.
Sumitomo could be fined with as much as $1.3 billion and Delphi
with as much as $968 million, based on market share, Crain's
Detroit Business noted.

Matthew Leitman, Esq., at Miller, Canfield, Paddock and Stone
PLC, in Troy, Michigan -- leitman@millercanfield.com -- who
declined to disclose the parties he represent, told Crain's
Detroit Business that companies to cooperate first or early in
the investigation are offered more leniency.

It is likely that the investigation in price fixing will not stop
in wire harnesses, Crain's Detroit Business noted.  Suppliers
involved in the wire harness price-fixing investigation have
turned over documents showing fraudulent activity in other
product lines to get more leniency from the U.S. Department of
Justice, according to George Donnini, Esq., at Butzel Long PC, in
Detroit, Michigan -- donnini@butzel.com -- the report relayed.
Mr. Donnini said if a company involved in price-fixing in other
segments does not come forward in this investigation, stiffer
penalties will be enforced, the report added.


DESERT GARDENS: Seeks to Use U.S. Bank's Cash Collateral
--------------------------------------------------------
Desert Gardens IV LLC ask the Bankruptcy Court to (a) approve the
use of cash collateral to pay necessary and essential postpetition
operating expenses and (b) deem the interest of U.S. Bank, the
Debtor's secured lender, in the Cash Collateral adequately
protected.

The Debtor expects to have cash needs of $247,200 for operating
and other business expenses per month for the first 90-days of the
case.  The Debtor expects monthly revenues will be $321,950 during
this time period.  The Debtor proposes to pay U.S. Bank $60,000 in
monthly adequate protection payments.  After monthly operating
expenses and adequate protection payments, the Debtor anticipates
a positive cash flow.

The cash sought to be used by Debtor is or may be claimed as cash
collateral by U.S. Bank.  The Debtor is not aware of any other
creditor that claims or may claim a lien or security interest in
Cash, Cash equivalents, or accounts of the Debtor.

On May 25, 2006, the Debtor signed a promissory note originally in
favor of Wells Fargo Bank for $26,000,000.  To secure repayment of
the loan, the Debtor also executed a Deed of Trust and Assignment
of Rents granting WF security interest in the Debtor's real
property.  On Aug. 22, 2007, and Sept. 6, 2007, WF, through its
assignee Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc., filed
UCC-1 statements with the Arizona Secretary of State whereby WF
took a security interest in the Debtor?s accounts, receivables,
equipment, furnishings, furniture fixtures and inventory and other
personal property.  WF assigned the Note to Bank of America,
successor by merger to LaSalle Bank, as trustee for registered
holders of Bear Stearns, on July 26, 2011.  Bank of America
assigned its interest to U.S. Bank on Aug. 16, 2011.

As of the Petition Date, U.S. Bank alleges that the balance owing
under the Note is $26.3 million.  U.S. Bank noticed a trustee's
sale which was scheduled for Nov. 14, 2011, but is now stayed.
The bank also brought a receivership action in state court on Nov.
1, 2011, which is also stayed.  The receivership hearing was set
for Nov. 10, 2011.

The Debtor preliminarily estimates that the Real Property may be
worth $16 million.  A full and formal appraisal will be
forthcoming.

DUNE ENERGY: Has 74% Acceptance of Exchange Offer
-------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Dune Energy Inc. disclosed that its exchange offer
has been accepted by holders of 74% of the convertible preferred
stock and holders of 96% of the $300 million in 10.5% second-lien
notes due 2012.

Before the offer was announced, Dune had support from holders of
90% of the secured notes and a holder with 64% of the convertible
preferred stock.  Dune said it hopes the offer will be completed
by the year's end.

The offer would give 97.25% of the new common stock and a
combination of cash or secured notes for $50 million to holder of
the existing secured notes.  The existing secured notes traded on
Nov. 15 for 58.87 cents on the dollar, according to Trace, the
bond-price reporting system of the Financial Industry Regulatory
Authority.

The existing preferred stockholders are to receive 1.5% of the
common stock, leaving existing shareholders with 1.25% of the
equity.

As reported by the TCR on Oct. 14, 2011, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services lowered its unsolicited corporate credit rating on Dune
Energy to 'CC' from 'CCC-'.

"We view this transaction as a distressed exchange offer as
bondholders and holders of preferred stock would be receiving less
value than the promise under the original securities.  Upon
completion of the exchange offer, we would expect to lower our
unsolicited senior secured debt rating to 'D' from 'CC' and the
unsolicited corporate credit rating to 'SD' from 'CC'.  In the
event of a prepackaged bankruptcy, we would expect to lower the
corporate credit rating to 'D' from 'CC,'" S&P related.


DYNAMIC BUILDERS: Chapter 11 Plan Declared Effective Nov. 10
------------------------------------------------------------
Dynamic Builders, Inc., notified the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Central District of California that the Effective Date of its
Second Amended Chapter 11 Plan, as modified, occurred on Nov. 10,
2011.

The Hon. Theodor Albert confirmed the Plan on Oct. 20 2011.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Oct. 27, 2011, the
Court authorized the Debtor to sell or transfer property to Bank
of America, N.A., or its nominee.

The Court approved the sale of the real properties -- 2914 East
Washington Boulevard, Los Angeles, California, and commonly known
as 3000/3090 East Washington Boulevard, Los Angeles, California,
free and clear of those liens, encumbrances, claims and interests
to BofA or its nominee, Quality Properties Asset Management
Company, an Illinois corporation, via credit bid.

As of Dec. 16, 2010, BofA was owed in excess of $52,000,000 on the
debt secured by the WFC Property.

The sale or sales are contemplated in the Plan Term Sheet entered
by the parties on December 2010.  Postpetition, the Debtor entered
into negotiations with its various lenders including BofA, in an
effort to propose a consensual plan of reorganization for Dynamic
and its principals, L. Ramon and Patty Bonin, who are Debtors in a
separate Chapter 11 proceeding.

The Debtors are also authorized to assume tenant leases and assign

DYNEGY INC: Bankruptcy Triggers Event of Default In Loan Deals
--------------------------------------------------------------
The filing of the Chapter 11 Cases by Dynegy Holdings LLC and its
subsidiaries constitutes or may constitute an event of default or
otherwise triggers or may trigger repayment obligations under the
express terms of certain instruments and agreements relating to
their direct financial obligations, according to the Company's
regulatory filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission
dated Nov. 8, 2011.

Catherine B. Callaway, the Company's Executive Vice President and
General Counsel, said that as a result of an event of default or
triggering event, all obligations under the Debt Documents, by the
terms of the Debt Documents, have or may become due and payable,
subject to the provisions of the Bankruptcy Code.  The Debtors
believe that any efforts to enforce the payment obligations
against them are stayed as a result of the filing of the Chapter
11 Cases in the Bankruptcy Court.

The Company disclosed that the material Debt Documents, and the
approximate principal amount of debt currently outstanding
thereunder, include:

  * the Old Notes, issued under the Indenture dated
    September 26, 1996, as amended and restated as of March 14,
    2001, and under the First through Sixth Supplemental
    Indentures thereto, between DH and Wilmington Trust Company
    (as successor to JP Morgan Chase Bank, N .A., successor to
    Bank One Trust Company, National Association), as trustee,
    in the outstanding aggregate principal amount of
    $3.3 billion.

  * Dynegy Holdings' Series B 8.316% Subordinated Capital Income
    Securities issued under the Indenture dated May 28, 1997,
    between NGC Corporation (a predecessor of DH) and the First
    National Bank of Chicago, as trustee, as amended and
    restated, in the outstanding aggregate principal amount of
    $200 million.

  * Dynegy Holdings' $1.25 billion promissory note to its
    subsidiary, Dynegy Gas Investments, LLC, payable on
    September 1, 2027.

  * Dynegy Holdings' $26,217,318 cash collateralized letter of
    credit facility between DH and Credit Suisse AG, Cayman
    Islands Branch, which is collateralized by an account
    maintained by Bank of New York Mellon holding the sum of
    $27,003,837.

  * Roseton and Danskammer's sale-leaseback arrangements under
    which the rent payments paid by each of them are assigned to
    an indenture trustee for the respective facility.  The
    indenture trustee then pays a portion of that payment to
    each of two pass-through trusts, and such pass-through
    trusts pay these amounts to holders of certificates in the
    pass-through trusts.  The current total outstanding
    principal of the outstanding certificates is approximately
    $550.4 million.

Shares of energy producer Dynegy Inc. rose almost 28% on Tuesday,

could leave shareholders in much better shape than bondholders,
Caroline Humer at Reuters reported.  Dynegy Inc.'s holding
company, Dynegy Holdings, and four subsidiaries filed for
bankruptcy Nov. 7.  The Companies have entered into a
restructuring agreement with bondholders, which they say hold more
than $1.4 billion of their more than $4 billion debt.  The
agreement has been called "unusual" by many.

FRANCISCAN COMMUNITIES: Says No to Patient Care Ombudsman
---------------------------------------------------------
Franciscan Communities St. Mary of the Woods, Inc., asks the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Ohio to enter an
order finding the appointment of a patient care ombudsman
unnecessary.  The Debtor believes a patient care ombudsman is
unwarranted in its bankruptcy case.

Section 333 of the Bankruptcy Code provides that, "[i]f the debtor
in a case under chapter ... 11 is a health care business, the
court shall order, not later than 30 days after the commencement
of the case, the appointment of an ombudsman to monitor the
quality of patient care and to represent the interests of the
patients of the health care business unless the court finds that
the appointment of such ombudsman is not necessary for the
protection of patients under the specific facts of the case."

The duties of a duly appointed patient care ombudsman under the
Bankruptcy Code are:

   (1) to monitor the quality of patient care provided to patients
       of the debtor, to the extent necessary under the
       circumstances, including interviewing patients and
       physicians;

   (2) not later than 60 says after the date of appointment, and
       not less frequently than at 60-day intervals thereafter,
       report to the court after notice to the parties-in-
       interest, at a hearing or in writing, regarding the quality
       of patient care provided to patients of the debtor; and

   (3) if the ombudsman determines that the quality of patient
       care provided to patients of the debtor is declining
       significantly or is otherwise being materially compromised,
       file with the Court a motion or a written report, with
       notice to the parties-in-interest immediately upon making
       such determination.

In determining whether to appoint an ombudsman, the Court will
examine the totality of circumstances surrounding the bankruptcy
filing and the operations of the Debtor.  Under this totality of
circumstances approach, bankruptcy courts consider a non-exclusive
list of nine factors to determine the necessity of appointing an
ombudsman:

   (1) the cause of the bankruptcy;

   (2) the presence and role of licensing or supervising entities;

   (3) the debtor's past history of patient care;

   (4) the ability of the patients to protect their rights;

   (5) the level of dependency of the patients on the facility;

   (6) the likelihood of tension between the interests of
       the patients and the debtor;

   (7) the potential injury to the patients if the debtor
       drastically reduced its level of patient care;

   (8) the presence and sufficiency of internal safe guards to
       ensure appropriate level of care; and

   (9) the impact of the cost of an ombudsman on the likelihood of
       a successful reorganization."

The Debtor asserts that a patient care ombudsman is not necessary
for the protection of residents at its facility, because the
totality of circumstances based on a review of the relevant
factors demonstrate that the appointment of an ombudsman is not

FSG-R LLC: Court Sets Combined Plan Hearing for Dec. 12
-------------------------------------------------------
On Nov. 4, 2011, United States Bankruptcy Judge Bruce A. Markell
entered an order conditionally approving the disclosure statement
accompanying FSG-R, LLC's Plan of Reorganization dated Oct. 31,
2011.

The Court set Dec. 12, 2011, at 2:00 p.m., as the date and time
fixed for the combined hearing on the adequacy of the
conditionally approved Disclosure Statement and confirmation
hearing on the Plan.

The Court also set Dec. 5, 2011, at 5:00 p.m., as the deadline for
(i) the receipt of Ballots voting to accept or reject the Plan,
and for (ii) the filing and service of objections to the adequacy
of the conditionally approved Disclosure Statement and
confirmation of the Plan.

The Court set that Dec. 8, 2011, is the last day for Debtor to
file its memorandum in support of the Plan, replies to any
objections to the adequacy of the conditionally approved
Disclosure Statement and confirmation of the Plan, any evidentiary
declarations in support and the Ballot tabulation summary.

The Plan provides for the reduction in taxes assessed against
Debtor's Real Property and for the return of the Real Property,
which serves as the secured Lenders' collateral, to the Lenders.
The Plan also provides for the Lenders, as holders of Allowed
General Unsecured Claims to a Pro Rata Share in a Cash payment of
any monies remaining after payment of all Administrative Claims
and other reserves and payments to Classes 1 and 2 under the Plan
in addition to the Membership Units in Debtor.  Debtor's existing
Equity Interests will receive no distribution under the Plan.

All Cash Distributions contemplated by the Plan will be made from
the Settlement Payment Amount.  On the Effective Date, which shall
be the First Distribution Date, the Reorganized Debtor will make
the Distributions to holders of Allowed Claims in Classes 1, 2 and
3, as applicable, pursuant to the Plan, without further order of
the Bankruptcy Court or need for corporate approval.

On the Second Distribution Date, Debtor's Parent will execute and
deliver whatever Plan Documents may be necessary to effectuate the
transfer described in Plan to the Manager who will, in turn,
deliver copies of such Plan Documents to the transferees.
Additionally, on the Second Distribution Date, the Manager will
make all remaining Cash Distributions, if any, pursuant to this
Plan.

The Plan separates Claims against Debtor into four classes.  There
is also one class of Equity Interests.

Class 1. T-18 LIP Assessment Claims.

In the event the holder of the Allowed T-18 LID Assessment
Claims votes to accept the Plan:

The holder of the Class 1-A Allowed T-18 LID ($1.93 million) will

($1.93 million) on the Effective Date, plus a Cash payment equal
to 50% of the total amount on the Second Distribution Date.

The holder of the Class 1-B Allowed T-18 LID Assessment Claim
($6.78 million) will retain all rights and liens upon the Real
Property for the remaining amount of the Allowed T-18 LID
Assessment Claims after application of the Cash payment described
in Section 4.1.2.1 is made.

In the event the holder of the Allowed T-18 LID Assessment Claims
votes to reject the Plan, then the holder of Allowed T-18 LID
Assessment Claims will not receive any Cash payments under the
Plan but will retain all rights and remedies under the Nevada
Revised Statutes and liens upon the Real Property for the full
amount of the Class 1-A and Class 1-B Allowed T-18 LID Assessment
Claims.

Class 4 General Unsecured Claims ($8.579 million).

settlement, release and discharge of, and in exchange for, the
full amount of such Allowed General Unsecured Claim, its Pro Rata
Share of (a) the Membership Units as transferred pursuant to the
Operating Agreement from Debtor's Parent; (b) a Cash payment equal
to all amounts, if any, paid to Pre-Effective Date Professionals
and held in trust for Pre-Effective Date Professional Fees that
are not subsequently allowed and approved by the Bankruptcy Court;
and (c) a Cash payment equal to all amounts, if any, remaining
from the Settlement Payment Amount after all Cash Distributions

Parent to the holders of Allowed General Unsecured Claims; each of
which will receive its Pro Rata Share of such Membership Units
being transferred.

Equity Interests are Impaired.  Holders of Equity Interests are

                    Settlement Payment Amount

The forthcoming Settlement Payment Amount is described below.

The Debtor's Chapter 11 Case is inextricably intertwined with the
bankruptcy proceeding of Debtor affiliate, South Edge, LLC, which
is also pending before the Bankruptcy Court.  South Edge has been
the developer of Inspirada and the entity responsible for building
major infrastructure for the benefit of the Real Property.  From
approximately February of 2008 until now the project was
substantially stalled and the planned infrastructure that was to
serve the Real Property was not provided.  As a result, currently
the Real Property has no access to major infrastructure, and
Debtor has been unable to develop, sell or refinance the Real
Property as expected.

In October 2008, Debtor purchased the Real Property from South
Edge with financing from the Lenders and, in exchange, gave a Deed
of Trust recorded against the Real Property in favor of
the Lenders, securing that certain promissory note dated Oct. 25,
2007, in the original principal amount of $25,560,000 issued by
Debtor prior to the Petition Date in favor of Lender.  Lender's
Deed of Trust was subordinate to an existing local improvement
district lien (the "T-18 LID"), in the original principal amount
of approximately $6,775,303.71.  As of Oct. 31, 2011, interest
assessments on the T-18 LID, including late fees, penalties and
interest, total approximately $1,684,208.26, with additional
assessments of approximately $250,000 due on Dec. 1, 2011.

Debtor and its parent, Focus South Group, LLC, filed an adversary
proceeding (the "City of Henderson Adversary Proceeding") seeking
a declaration that the T-18 LID Assessments are unenforceable or
otherwise, should be eliminated or substantially reduced.  In
addition, the Debtor sought an injunction to prohibit the City
from foreclosing pursuant to the T-18 LID.  Ultimately, the Court
denied Debtor's motion for an injunction.  The Court also denied
the City's motion to dismiss the Adversary Proceeding.  Absent an
injunction, on Oct. 25, 2011, the City held a foreclosure auction.
Having received no bids at the auction, the City now holds a
Certificate of Sale which, if not redeemed during the redemption
period, the City or a subsequent purchaser of the Certificate of
Sale may convert into a deed for the Real Property.

The Inspirada project itself remained mired in litigation
involving no less than three separate forums, and, until recently,
it was unclear whether or when the Inspirada project would
recommence.  The litigation included litigation brought by
JPMorgan Chase Bank, in its capacity as Administrative
Agent under that certain Credit Agreement entered into on Nov. 1,
2004 (as amended) in the United States District Court for the
District of Nevada to enforce various completion guarantees issued
in connection with the Inspirada project and to enforce certain of
South Edge's rights against the Builders, litigation brought by
the Builders against Focus in the District Court in connection
with the Administrative Agent's complaint on various indemnity
theories, litigation brought by Focus against the Builders to
compel arbitration and the ensuing arbitration, an appeal of the
$36.8 million arbitration award to the Ninth Circuit, and,
recently, litigation between Focus, Cynthia Nelson, the Chapter 11
trustee for the bankruptcy estate of South Edge and JPMorgan
concerning ownership of a $26 million fund known as the "MI
Deposit," as well as the South Edge Trustee's claims against Focus
for purported fraudulent transfer received by Focus in the amount
of $4.5 million on a fraudulent transfer theory.  The Trustee had
also recently informed Focus that it intended to file a motion to
amend the Focus Adversary Proceeding to allege other claims for
relief and damages related to Inspirada.

The Parties, however, subsequently reached an agreement, that has
resolved all of the aforementioned litigation, provide a framework
for restarting the Inspirada project and provides Debtor with the
resources it needs to provide its creditors with significant
recoveries.  On Oct. 7, 2011, Debtor and Focus filed a the Motion
Pursuant to Rule 9019 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure
for Entry of an Order Approving the Settlement Agreement and
related pleadings, as supplemented by the Notice of Filing of
Final Settlement Agreement.  On Oct. 18, 2011, the Court entered
an order granting the Settlement Motion and approving the
Settlement.

In short, under the Settlement, the Debtor will receive
$2.8 million on or before the later of: (a) Nov. 30, 2011, or (b)
thirty days after the confirmation of the plan of reorganization
on file in the South Edge bankruptcy case, but in no event later
than Dec. 30, 2011.  Conversely, the Debtor will dismiss the City
of Henderson Adversary Proceeding.

GYMBOREE CORP: Bank Debt Trades at 9% Off in Secondary Market
-------------------------------------------------------------
Participations in a syndicated loan under which Gymboree
Corporation is a borrower traded in the secondary market at 90.58
cents-on-the-dollar during the week ended Friday, Nov. 25, 2011, a
drop of 2.81 percentage points from the previous week according to
data compiled by Loan Pricing Corp. and reported in The Wall
Street Journal.  The Company pays 412.5 basis points above LIBOR
to borrow under the facility.  The bank loan matures on Feb. 23,
2018, and carries Moody's 'B1' rating and Standard & Poor's 'B'
rating.  The loan is one of the biggest gainers and losers among
114 widely quoted syndicated loans with five or more bids in
secondary trading for the week ended Friday.

                  About The Gymboree Corporation

The Gymboree Corporation (GYMB: Nasdaq) --
http://www.gymboree.com/-- is a specialty retailer operating

Canada and Puerto Rico in regional shopping malls and in selected
suburban and urban locations.  As of January 30, 2010, the Company

Outlet, Janie and Jack, Crazy 8, and Gymboree Play & Music.  As of
January 30, 2010, the Company operated a total of 953 retail

                           *     *     *

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 14, 2011,
Moody's Investors Service revised The Gymboree Corporation's
rating outlook to negative from stable.  All other ratings
including the B2 Corporate Family Rating were affirmed.  The
rating outlook revision to negative from stable primarily reflects
persistent negative trends in EBITDA over the past few fiscal
quarters and Moody's expectations that these negative trends are
unlikely to reverse over the course of the current fiscal year.
As a result, the company's performance has been below Moody's
initial expectations therefore leverage is likely to remain high
for an extended period.  The company's recent performance has been
negatively impacted primarily by weak product performance at its
Gymboree division, which necessitated higher markdowns to clear
merchandise.  The company's cost of sales is expected to increase
over the course of the current fiscal year, as goods were
purchased when raw material costs were higher earlier this year
are delivered to the stores.  Moody's expects the company will
face continued pressure on gross margins over the course of this
year as a result.

Gymboree's B2 Corporate Family Rating reflects its highly
leveraged capital structure following its acquisition by Bain
Capital.  Leverage remains high, with debt/EBITDA in excess of 6.5
times for the LTM period ending July 30, 2011.  The rating also
takes into consideration Gymboree's overall moderate scale and the
highly fragmented infant and toddler apparel market.


HDD ROTARY: Court Orders Sec. 363 Auction on Dec. 13, 2011
----------------------------------------------------------
PLS, Inc. has been retained to assist Wayne Fuquay, Chief
Restructuring Officer for HDD Rotary Sales LLC in marketing the
company including its real property, manufacturing operation,
inventory, ongoing business and patent pending technology.  The
company entered bankruptcy earlier this year, and its assets will
be sold by auction under Section 363 of the Bankruptcy Code on
Dec. 13, 2011.  All preliminary offers are due December 8, 2011.

HDD Rotary Sales sells, services and support drill pipe and drill
stem components -- from the top drive sub down to the drill bit.
HDD has developed its own proprietary connection and patent
pending PTECH+ technology.

HDD has developed a proprietary dual shoulder increased torque
tool joint connection that was designed to outperform the next
generation high torque connections.  HDD's new thread profile,
dual shoulder design connection has the capability to reach
maximum torques while still maintaining a streamline design.  The
PTECH+ thread form allows for a large single root radius that
reduces peak stresses in the connection and the connections
stiffness, allowing the connection to withstand higher dogleg
severities, thus increasing the fatigue life of the connection.
In more detail, the combination of tapers and thread forms allows
each connection to have smaller ODs and larger IDs and still
maintain a balanced connection which allows for extended wear.
The design has gone through various design validations which
include: 3-D finite element analysis, physical torsion to failure
tests, multiple make and breaks, and fatigue testing - all with
successful results.

Wayne Fuquay & Associates is a Houston based corporate consultant
and crisis management firm with more than 25 years in assisting
companies through restructuring and business assessment.

H&H BAGELS: GA Keen to Sell Prime Manhattan Redevelopment Property
------------------------------------------------------------------
GA Keen Realty Advisors, a division of Great American Group, LLC ,
a leading provider of asset disposition, valuation, real estate
and appraisal services, has been retained to assist in the
marketing and sale of a prime piece of real estate located at 639
West 46th Street in New York City.  The property is currently home
to H&H Bagels' sole remaining location.

According to Matthew Bordwin, Co-President of GA Keen Realty
Advisors, the commercial property, located in the Midtown West
section of the city, represents "an excellent redevelopment
opportunity" for the right buyer.

"It's rare to have more than 25,000 square feet of prime Manhattan
property available in such a great location," Bordwin said.  "We
anticipate there will be a lot of interest among users, developers
and investors, especially given its redevelopment potential and
prime location by the Intrepid and Hudson River."

The two-story building, which currently houses H&H Bagels'
manufacturing plant and retail store, is located on a .29 acre
site between 11th and 12th avenues. Both stories offer 12,500

INT'L STORYTELLING: To File Chapter 11 Plan in December
-------------------------------------------------------
Madison Mathews at The Kingsport Times-News reports that Jimmy
Neil Smith, president of International Storytelling Center, said
the Company will submit its bankruptcy reorganization plan in
December.  The plan, however, does not include the ISC's building
in downtown Jonesborough.

"Basically, we just couldn't get a reasonable price, and on top of
that, we don't have the financial resources at hand at this point
to reacquire the building.  That's a challenge we will look at
once we emerge from Chapter 11," the report quotes Mr. Smith as
saying.

Based in Jonesborough, Tennessee, International Storytelling
Center filed for Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. E.D. Tenn. Case No.
10-53299) on Dec. 31, 2010.  Judge Marcia Phillips Parsons
presides over the case.  Mark S. Dessauer, Esq., at Hunter, Smith
& Davis, represents the Debtor.  The Debtor both estimated assets
and debts between $1 million and $10 million.


INT'L TENNIS CENTER: Bank Wants Chapter 22 Case Dismissed
---------------------------------------------------------
Bank of Nevada is seeking dismissal of the Chapter 11 case of
International Tennis Center of Las Vegas, LLC, for lack of good
faith and with prejudice or, in the alternative, for immediate
relief from the automatic stay to permit the bank to proceed with
foreclosure.

Bank of Nevada said the 2011 bankruptcy filing is merely yet
another of the Debtor's ongoing delay tactics employed for over a
year to continually and wrongfully prevent the bank from
foreclosing on its deed of trust and holding a trustee's sale of
the real property which serves as its collateral, despite the bank
having obtained relief from the automatic stay in the Debtor's
prior bankruptcy case.  During that prior case, which was closed
barely a month ago, Bank of Nevada patiently and consistently
worked with the Debtor to give the Debtor extensive opportunities
to prove that it could obtain financing to satisfy Lender's claim
to retain the real property.  The Debtor failed to come up with
financing in over a year during the pendency of the case.  The
Court, having also experienced the continuous dilatory behavior,
granted the bank relief from the automatic stay.  Upon the eve of
the trustee's sale set for Nov. 2, 2011, well over a year after
the first Notices of Default were recorded against the property
and almost two years since the Debtor's last payment to the bank,
the Debtor filed yet another bankruptcy case.

filed for chapter 11 protection on Sept. 22, 2004 (Bankr. W.D. Mo.
Case No. 04-45814).  J. Eric Ivester, Esq., and Samuel S. Ory,
Esq., at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, represented the
Debtors in their restructuring efforts.  When the Debtors filed
for protection from their creditors, they disclosed $1,626,425,000
in total assets and $1,321,713,000 (excluding the $100,000,000
issue of 6% senior subordinated convertible notes due Aug. 15,
2014) in total debts.

The Debtors first filed their Chapter 11 Plan and Disclosure
Statement on Nov. 5, 2007.  On Jan. 30, 2008, the Debtors received
court approval of the disclosure statement explaining their first
amended plan.  IBC did not receive any qualifying alternative
proposals for funding its plan in accordance with the court-
approved alternative proposal procedures.

The Debtors, on Oct. 4, 2008, filed another Plan, which
contemplates IBC's emergence from Chapter 11 as a stand-alone
company.  The filing of the Plan was made in connection with the
plan funding commitments, on Sept. 12, 2008, from an affiliate of
Ripplewood Holdings L.L.C. and from Silver Point Finance, LLC, and
Monarch Master Funding Ltd.

On Dec. 5, 2008, the Bankruptcy Court confirmed IBC's Amended
New Joint Plan of Reorganization.  The plan was filed Oct. 31,
2008.  The exit financings that form the basis for the Plan are
reflected in corresponding debt and equity commitments.

Interstate Bakeries emerged from Chapter 11 on Feb. 3, 2009.
Upon emergence, the Company moved its headquarters from Kansas
City, Missouri, to Dallas, Texas.  A Creditors Trust was
established under terms of the Debtors' confirmed Chapter 11 Plan.
U.S. Bank National Association was appointed as Trustee.

In September 2011, The Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar
with the matter, reported that Hostess Brands has law firm Jones
Day and financial-services firm Perella Weinberg Partners to
negotiate with creditors and attempt to rework the company's
finances.  The sources said no restructuring is imminent and
Hostess has adequate cash to operate in the near term.

The Journal said Hostess's creditors include General Electric
Co.'s finance arm and hedge funds Silver Point Capital and Monarch
Alternative Capital.  Silver Point and Monarch also own equity.
The Journal's sources also noted that Silver Point, Monarch and
others loaned Hostess $20 million in August 2011.  They also said
Ripplewood Holdings, the company's private-equity owner, loaned
Hostess $30 million in March and invested another $10 million in
equity in June to give the firm a cushion.

The Journal's sources also noted that Hostess has made contingency
plans for a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing.  The sources also said
Hostess is trying to renegotiate hundreds of separate labor
contracts to lower costs and could end up seeking bankruptcy
protection to do so if unable to reach agreements with unionized
workers outside of court.


JEFFERSON COUNTY, AL: Kurtzman Carson Approved as Claims Agent
--------------------------------------------------------------
At the behest of Jefferson County, Alabama, the Bankruptcy Court
appointed Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC as the claims, noticing
and balloting agent in the Chapter 9 bankruptcy case.

Jefferson County said the potential creditor pool in the County's
case is vast, with roughly 700,000 people residing within the
County and with more than 16,000 entries appearing in the County's
historical accounts payable ledger.  The County has listed more
than 5,600 creditors on its mailing matrix.  Given the size of the
County's creditor body, it would be impracticable and inefficient
for the County and the Court to undertake the task of sending
notices to the creditors and other parties in interest. Moreover,
appointing the Noticing Agent to maintain a claims register and
process claims and ballots greatly will decrease the costs and
burdens of administering the County's case and will improve the
accuracy and efficiency of the noticing, claims allowance, and
solicitation processes.

                       About Jefferson County

Jefferson County has its seat in Birmingham, Alabama.  It has a
population of 660,000.

Jefferson County filed a bankruptcy petition under Chapter 9
(Bankr. N.D. Ala. Case No. 11-05736) on Nov. 9, 2011, after an
agreement among elected officials and investors to refinance
$3.1 billion in sewer bonds fell apart.

John S. Young Jr. LLC was appointed as receiver by Alabama Circuit
Court Judge Albert Johnson in September 2010.

Jefferson County's bankruptcy represents the largest municipal
debt adjustment of all time.  The county said that long-term debt
is $4.23 billion, including about $3.1 billion in defaulted sewer
bonds where the debt holders can look only to the sewer system for
payment.

The county said it would use the bankruptcy court to put a value
on the sewer system, in the process fixing the amount bondholders
should be paid through Chapter 9.

Judge Thomas B. Bennett presides over the Chapter 9 case.
Jefferson estimated more than $1 billion in assets.  The petition
was signed by David Carrington, president.

JEFFERSON COUNTY, AL: Has Dec. 12 Deadline to File Creditor List
----------------------------------------------------------------
Thomas B. Bennett approved a motion by Jefferson County, Alabama,
fixing the date to file a list of creditors no later than Dec. 12,
2011 at 5:00 p.m. Central time.

Jefferson County has its seat in Birmingham, Alabama.  It has a
population of 660,000.

Jefferson County filed a bankruptcy petition under Chapter 9
(Bankr. N.D. Ala. Case No. 11-05736) on Nov. 9, 2011, after an

petition was signed by David Carrington, president.


KAHUKU HOSPITAL: Hawaii Court Rules on Fee Enhancement Requests
---------------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Robert J. Faris ruled on requests by the general
and special counsel to Kahuku Hospital for fee enhancement.  The
law firms seek a fee enhancement based on two factors: the risk of
nonpayment; and the excellent outcome of the case.  The Office of
the United States Trustee objects, contending that there was no
real risk of nonpayment; excellent results alone do not justify an
upward adjustment; and an unusually large proportion of the work
was done by senior attorneys with higher billing rates, thus
increasing the total fee.  The Hawaii Health Systems Corporation
also objects, contending that state funding gave the debtor an
"unusual headstart" and the result is partly attributable to the
hospital regulatory work done by HHSC, not the debtor or its
counsel.

Judge Faris noted that the results of the case were unusual and
exceptionally good for the creditors.  All secured and unsecured
creditors were paid in full with interest, leaving a surplus of
about $1,000,000.  The judge acknowledged that the debtor's
general and special counsel made a substantial contribution to
this outcome.  Counsel negotiated and helped to consummate a sale
of the debtor, and then challenged questionable claims, which
reduced the debtor's liabilities by over 40%, from $4,442,870 to
$2,544,159.  There would have been no surplus if the sale did not
close and the unsubstantiated claims were not eliminated.

Gelber, Gelber & Ingersoll served as the debtor's general counsel
and Torkildson Katz Fonseca Moore & Hetherington as its special
counsel concerning labor, employment, healthcare, and corporate
law matters.

For their services, the law firms seek compensation at their usual
hourly rates and reimbursement of expenses (totaling $787,198.54
for general counsel through Oct. 17, 2011, and $312,285.83 for
special counsel through Oct. 31, 2011) plus an "upward adjustment"
applied to the compensation.  The firms suggest that an upward
adjustment of 10% to 15% is warranted.

In a Nov. 23, 2011 Memorandum of Decision available at
http://is.gd/AM5OwEfrom Leagle.com, Judge Faris said the hourly
rate charged by Don Gelber ($390 per hour until Feb. 26, 2009, and
$430 thereafter) during the first period of the case was
unreasonably low, considering his skill and experience.  Mr.
Gelber has roughly 40 years of experience and has had major roles
in many of the largest cases before the court.  Nevertheless, his
rates are not the highest charged by bankruptcy attorneys in
Hawaii, and are substantially less than the rates charged by
comparably experienced attorneys based on the mainland ($500 to
$1,000 per hour or more).

Judge Faris noted that Hawaii is a small state with a small
bankruptcy bar and an even smaller cadre of attorneys with
experience representing chapter 11 debtors in possession. The
attorney whose expertise and experience most closely resembles Mr.
Gelber's is James Wagner.  Mr. Wagner charged (and the court
approved) at least $425 per hour at the time Mr. Gelber was
charging $390 per hour.  In the circumstances of this case, a
reasonable hourly rate for Mr. Gelber would be at least $425 per
hour from the commencement of the case.

This results in an increase of the lodestar by $36,228.50 plus tax
for the Gelber firm, Judge Faris said.  In addition, the Gelber
firm is entitled to compensation for the preparation and
presentation of its fee application and a portion of the work done
in defense of that application (since the defense was only partly
successful).  The reasonable amount of such compensation is
$17,000 plus tax.

While there is enough information to establish that Mr. Gelber's
hourly rate should be increased, Judge Faris noted there is not
sufficient information to determine that the usual rate charged by
the Torkildson firm is insufficient.  George Hetherington is a
well-respected and highly experienced attorney in his practice
areas. He performed his duties with exceptional professionalism
and expertise. Nevertheless, the record does not reflect that Mr.
Hetherington's rate was unusually low compared to similar
professionals in the community.

                       About Kahuku Hospital

Kahuku Hospital owned a small hospital on the North Shore of Oahu,
a rural area with little population but many visitors.  The
hospital filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. D. Hawaii Case
No. 07-00176) on Feb. 23, 2007.  On May 31, 2007, the governor of
Hawaii approved an appropriation of up to $2,900,000 to finance
the acquisition of the hospital by the Hawaii Health Systems
Corporation, a state instrumentality that owns and operates public
hospitals, and an additional $1,000,000 to cover HHSC's
transitional expenses.  The deal closed in March 2008 after
settlement of certain issues.


KINGFISHER AIRLINES: Lessors Set to Grab Planes
-----------------------------------------------
Dow Jones' DBR Small Cap reports that airplane-leasing companies
are preparing to repossess planes from India's Kingfisher Airlines
Ltd. if the troubled carrier's finances deteriorate further, said
an executive at one of the companies.

                    About Kingfisher Airlines

Headquartered in Mumbai, India, Kingfisher Airlines --
http://www.flykingfisher.com/-- formerly known as Deccan
Aviation Ltd., serves about 35 domestic destinations with a fleet
of more than 40 aircraft, including Airbus jets and ATR 72
turboprops.  It maintains bases in major cities such as Delhi and
Mumbai.  Kingfisher Airlines is a unit of UB Holdings, best known
for its United Breweries unit, and the carrier shares the
Kingfisher brand with a popular Indian beer.  UB Holdings also
owns a stake in another domestic carrier, Air Deccan, whose
operations it combined with Kingfisher Airlines in mid-2008.
Kingfisher Airlines began flying in 2005.

                        *     *     *

Kingfisher Airlines has lost money six years in a row,
accumulating net debt of INR77.2 billion (US$1.74 billion) as of
March 2010, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
Sept. 16, 2011, The Economic Times said Kingfisher Airlines Ltd.
has found itself parrying questions about its survival after its
auditor raised doubts over the company's ability to stay in
business for long.  Audit firm BK Ramadhyani & Co, which
examined the books of the airline, said in remarks published in
the airline's annual report that Kingfisher's ability to remain a
"going concern" will depend on its promoters bringing in money
into the company.  The auditors also said Kingfisher has not
deposited with the government money it collected from employees
as tax deducted at source and provident fund contribution,
painting a dire picture of the airline's finances, The Economic
Times reported.


LEHMAN BROTHERS: Settles $100-Mil. of Claims by Alston, et al.
--------------------------------------------------------------
Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. has filed a motion to settle nearly
$100 million of claims against the company and Lehman Brothers
Special Financing Inc.

The claims were filed by Elliot Associates L.P. and Elliott
International L.P. after their derivatives deals with the Lehman
units were terminated following the latter's bankruptcy filing in
2008.  Alston Investments LLC and Ashton Investments LLC
purchased those claims in June of this year.

Pursuant to Lehman's agreement with Alston, the claims asserted
by the investment firm will be slashed by approximately 42% or
$34.5 million.  Alston will have an allowed claim in the sum of
more than $24 million against each of the Lehman units.

Meanwhile, Ashton's claims will be reduced by approximately $51.9
million or 45% of the asserted amounts.  Ashton will have an
allowed claim in the sum of more than $32 million against each of
the Lehman units, according to its proposed agreement with the
Lehman units.

Both settlement agreements also call for the mutual release of
claims under the derivatives deals.  Full-text copies of the
agreements are available without charge at:

consider approval of the agreements.  The deadline for filing
objections is November 23, 2011.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Lloyd's Authorized to Pay $500k to GameTech
------------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge James Peck issued an order authorizing certain
underwriters at Lloyd's, London to pay $500,000 to settle an
arbitration case filed by GameTech International Inc.

The case, styled GameTech International, Inc. v. Lehman Brothers
Inc., et al., is overseen by the Financial Industry Regulatory
Authority.  It stemmed from alleged securities law violations
committed by Lehman officers and employees in connection with
GameTech's investment in auction rate securities.

In another order, the bankruptcy judge also authorized certain
underwriters at Lloyd's, London, Illinois National Insurance
Company, Chartis Excess Ltd., and Axis Specialty Limited Bermuda
to cover the payment to settle lawsuits against Lehman officers
and employees.

Earlier, the defendants entered into agreements to settle the
lawsuits, which stemmed from the purchase by the California
Public Employees' Retirement System, the Washington State
Investment Board and the American National Life Insurance Company
of Texas of more than $800 million worth of Lehman securities.

The defendants also reached a settlement of the arbitration case
filed by 4Kids Entertainment Inc., which seeks payment of
approximately $36 million in damages that 4Kids allegedly
suffered after investing in auction rate securities.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Court Approves Settlement With Danske Bank
-----------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York
approved the settlement between Lehman Brothers and Danske Bank
A/S.

Under the deal, Danske Bank's claim against Lehman Commercial
Paper Inc. will be reduced to $580 million, and allowed as a non-
priority, general unsecured claim against the Lehman subsidiary
in Class 4A under the proposed Chapter 11 plan.

Meanwhile, the bank's claim against Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc.
will be reduced to $580 million and allowed as a senior non-
priority, general unsecured claim against the company in Class 5
under the plan.

Both claims stemmed from a 1999 repurchase agreement between LCPI
and Danske Bank, which allowed the Lehman unit to sell and
repurchase loans.  LCPI's obligations were guaranteed by its
parent company.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: JPM Trying to Move $8.6BB Suit to Dist. Court
--------------------------------------------------------------
JPMorgan Chase & Co. is trying to move an $8.6 billion lawsuit by
Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. from bankruptcy court to district
court, according to a November 17, 2011 report by Bloomberg News.

JPMorgan said a bankruptcy court cannot rule on LBHI's allegation
that the bank caused monetary damage to the company in 2008,
adding that the lawsuit should be handled by a district judge.

Citing a ruling in the Anna Nicole Smith case that described
limits to the power of bankruptcy judges, the bank said a
district judge must decide LBHI's common-law damage claims in its
lawsuit, Bloomberg News reported.

Referring to the fight over the claims, the bank said "there is
no sense in splitting this lawsuit and leaving some subset of
plaintiff's 49 interrelated claims in the bankruptcy court."

LBHI's fight with JPMorgan continues even after it dropped its
battle with Barclays Plc for an alleged $11 billion "windfall"
made on the U.K. bank's acquisition of the company's North
American business.  Dropping an appeal in that case, the company
said it wanted to get on with its proposed plan.

LBHI sued JPMorgan early last year to recover billions of dollars
that the bank allegedly seized as collateral.  The bank allegedly
threatened to discontinue its services unless LBHI posted
excessive collateral.

JPMorgan served as LBHI's main clearing bank in the 2008
financial crisis, lending the company's brokerage more than $100
billion a day to settle trades and repurchase agreements.

LENOX 126 REALTY: Member Wants Ch. 11 Trustee Appointed in Case
---------------------------------------------------------------
Aspasia Gatanas asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of New York to appoint an Chapter 11 trustee in the
Chapter 11 case of Lenox Realty LLC.

Ms. Gatanas is a 50% member of the Debtor as mutually agreed to by
the parties.

Ms. Gatanas complains about the Debtor's repeated and unlawful
disposition of proceeds, the appointment of an unlicensed real
estate management company, the lack of authority to file the
bankruptcy, and other irresponsible acts of managing member
Lorenzo A. Deluca.

Additionally, Ms. Gatanas has identified over $800,000 in
questionable payments by the Debtors prior to the Petition Date,
among other recipients, insiders and other unauthorized parties.
The Debtor has also a track record of disregarded liens and
obligations of secured creditors and others.

                      About Lenox 126 Realty

Staten Island-based real estate investor Lorenzo De Luca, through
his Lenox 126 Realty LLC, filed for Chapter 11 protection (Bankr.
S.D.N.Y. Case No. 11-12275) on May 12, 2011, to block the
foreclosure sale at his apartment building at 321 Lenox Avenue in
New York.  Mr. De Luca paid $9.1 million for the building in 2006.
Mr. De Luca defaulted on a $7.5 million loan from Chinatrust bank,
which later sold the first mortgage to Delshah Capital.  In March,
State Supreme Court Justice Jane Solomon ordered the property be
sold at auction.

In its schedules, Lenox 126 Realty disclosed $10,377,689 in assets
and $14,718,905 in liabilities as of Chapter 11 filing.  Judge
Sean H. Lane presides over the case.

No committee has been appointed to date in this case.

LOS ANGELES DODGERS: Fox Wants McCourt to 'Get Out of the Way'
--------------------------------------------------------------
Fox Entertainment Group Inc. filed papers in bankruptcy court on
Thanksgiving Day saying that Frank McCourt, the owner of the Los
Angeles Dodgers baseball club, "is not necessary to this process.
He should get out of the way and let everyone return to the
business of baseball."

Fox's papers were filed in opposition to the Dodgers' latest
motion, to be argued on Nov. 30, seeking permission to auction
telecasting rights.

Reuters relates that Fox, which broadcasts Dodgers games, has
vigorously opposed the team's plan to sell its future media rights
earlier than expected as part of a plan to auction the team and
exit bankruptcy.

Reuters, citing court documents filed last week, says Fox asked
the Delaware bankruptcy court to reject the team's request to sell
its future broadcast rights, saying such a sale was unnecessary to
bring the team out of Chapter 11.  "Moreover, Mr. McCourt is not
necessary to this process. He should get out of the way and let
everyone return to the business of baseball," the report quotes
Fox as stating.

The Reuters report says the Dodgers stated that recognizing the
full value of the future media rights in conjunction with the sale
of the team would be in the best interests of the team, fans and
Major League Baseball.  "The fact that Fox thinks it should now
opine on real estate is just plain foolish," Dodger stated.

According to Bloomberg News' report, if the Dodgers want the
highest price for the team, the sale should include the land under
the stadium and the parking lot, Fox said in its papers.  The News
Corp. unit is urging the bankruptcy court not to consider an
auction for broadcasting rights until the still-secret terms of
the settlement with Major League Baseball are revealed.

Bloomberg recounts that early this month, the team and the
baseball commissioner said they reached a settlement through
mediation where the team would be sold at auction under agreed
procedures.  The commissioner, according to a court filing, won't
oppose having an auction to learn if Fox or someone else will make
the best offer for television rights beginning with the 2014
season.

Fox, according to the Bloomberg report, said an auction isn't
necessary to know what future television rights are worth because
every buyer will have media advisers.  Fox contends that "bidders
can and do easily value the future telecast rights."

Last week, the U.S. Bankruptcy Judge in Delaware halted discovery
and sent Fox and the Dodgers into mediation Nov. 28 with retired
U.S. District Judge Joseph J. Farnan Jr., the mediator who worked
out a settlement with the baseball commissioner.

At least for now, a hearing remains on the bankruptcy court's
calendar for Nov. 30, when the Dodgers are scheduled to request
court approval for auction procedures designed to determine
whether Fox has the best offer for television broadcasting rights
beginning with the 2014 season.

Fox, Mr. Rochelle notes, has a motion on file to dismiss the
Dodgers' bankruptcy, calling it an "elaborate contrivance" to
solve the owner's financial problems. Fox also has a complaint on
file in bankruptcy court against the Dodgers and Mr. McCourt,
contending that they are interfering with the broadcaster's right
under the existing media contract.

To carry out the settlement with the commissioner negotiated with
Judge Farnan's help, the Dodgers are to file papers setting up
procedures for selling the team.  The Dodgers say the sale of the
club as whole will be completed by April 30.

                  About Los Angeles Dodgers

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

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

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

The petition estimates assets of up to $500 million and debts of
up to $1 billion.  In its schedules, the LA Dodgers baseball club
disclosed $77,963,734 in assets and $4,695,702 in liabilities.  LA
Real Estate LLC disclosed $161,761,883 in assets and $0 in
liabilities.

According to Forbes, the team is worth about $800 million, making
it the third most valuable baseball team after the New York
Yankees and the Boston Red Sox.

Judge Kevin Gross presides over the case.  Lawyers at Young,
Conaway, Stargatt & Taylor and Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP serve as the
Debtors' bankruptcy counsel.  Epiq Bankruptcy Solutions LLC is the
claims and notice agent.  Public relations specialist Kekst and
Company has been hired for crisis support.  Covington & Burling
LLP serves as special counsel.

An official committee of unsecured creditors has been appointed in
the case.  The panel has tapped Lazard Freres & Co. as financial
adviser and investment banker, and Morrison & Foerster LLP and
Pinckney, Harris & Weidinger, LLC as counsel.

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

The reorganization is being financed with a $150 million unsecured
loan from the Commissioner of Major League Baseball.  The loan
gives the Commissioner few of the controls lenders often demanded
from bankrupt companies.

MAQ MANAGEMENT: Super Stop Taps Fisher Auction for Sale of Assets
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Super Stop Petroleum, Inc., a debtor-affiliate of MAQ Management,
Inc. et al., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of Florida for permission to employ Fisher Auction
Company as auctioneer for sale of real property located at
223 Academy Drive, Kissimmee, Florida.

Super Stop relates that the maximum amount of costs and expenses
to be advanced by Debtors to auctioneer is $10,000 for items
including advertising, travel, lodging, bid packets, property
information package and photography.  The compensation of
auctioneer will be based on 10% buyer's premium added to the final
bid price and will be included in the total contract price. The
buyer's premium will be divided between auctioneer, co-broker and
procuring cause broker per separate contract.  If a Credit Bidder
is the highest bidder on the property, Fisher Auction Co, Inc.,
Apex International Brokerage are to receive 2% of the bid price as
an earned fee for their services rendered which will be
compensated by the Debtor and or Credit Bidder within 30 days
after the auction.

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

MAQ MANAGEMENT: Super Stop Wants Adequate Protection Payments OK'd
------------------------------------------------------------------
Super Stop Petroleum, Inc., a debtor-affiliate of MAQ Management,
Inc. et al., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of Florida to approve a stipulation authorizing the
Debtor to provide adequate protection payments to First State Bank
of Arcadia.

SSP, Inc. is the owner of multiple gasoline stations/convenience
stores in southern and central Florida, which are operated by the
Debtor or its affiliates, including the property located at 2829
Highway 70 West, Arcadia, Florida which is subject to Arcadia's
first and second position mortgage.

The property is presently not generating rental income, except
that pursuant to the SSE Lease, $4,000 was paid to Debtor by SSE
in August 2011 and there is now $4,000 in the Debtor-In-Possession
Account for Arcadia.

Arcadia has a first priority interest in the rent proceeds from
the property pursuant to the loan documents dated Sept. 30, 2002,
and May 19, 2010.

The Stipulated Order provides Arcadia with adequate protection of
its interests in the form of periodic cash payments.

The Debtor proposes to provide Arcadia with adequate protection
nunc pro tunc to Aug. 1, 2011, as:

   i) $3,900 for the month of August 2011 from the Debtor-In-
      Possession Account for Arcadia; and

  ii) thereafter, monthly payments of $2,490 from the WSB Cash
      Collateral, with payments to be made on or before the 5th
      day following the end of each calendar month, until further
      order of the Court, except that payments for the months of
      August, September and October will be made within 3 business
      days from the entry of the Stipulated Order.

If Debtor fails to comply with the terms of the Stipulated Order
or with the terms of the cash segregation order, and Arcadia gives
notice of the default to Debtor and its counsel with an
opportunity to cure, to the extent the event is curable, and to
the extent the event has not been cured within 3 business days,
Arcadia will be permitted to obtain a hearing on at least 3
business days' notice to the Debtor, any committee, the U.S.
Trustee and any party filing a Notice of Appearance in the case,
seeking to enforce the terms of the Stipulated Order.

MF GLOBAL: Elliott Mgt. Has Screening Wall for Claims Trading
-------------------------------------------------------------
Elliott Management Corp., for itself and its affiliates, asks the
Court to approve information blocking procedures and permit
trading in the "covered claims" in certain situations.

Covered Claims means any claims against the Debtors, including
(i) "Securities" as defined in Section 2(a)(1) of the Securities
Act of 1993 (including, stocks, notes, bonds, debentures,
participation in, or derivatives based upon or relating to, any
of the Debtors' debt obligations or equity interests); and (ii)
bank debt.

Specifically, Elliott seeks entry of an order indicating that the
firm, which is engaged in the trading of securities or claims for
others or for its own account as a regular part of its business,
will not violate its fiduciary duties as a member of the Official
Committee of Unsecured Creditors by trading in the Covered Claims
during the pendency of the Debtors' Chapter 11 cases, provided
that it establishes, effectively implements, and adheres to the
information blocking policies and procedures that are approved by
the U.S. Trustee for Region 2 or that are otherwise consistent
with certain procedures set forth in screening wall declarations.

The term "Screening Wall" refers to a procedure established by an
institution to isolate its trading activities from its activities
as a member of an official committee of unsecured creditors in a
chapter 11 case.  A Screening Wall includes, among other things,
those features as the employment of different personnel to
perform certain functions, physical separation of the office and
file space, procedures for locking committee related files,
separate telephone and facsimile lines for certain functions, and
special procedures for the delivery and posting of telephones
messages.

The procedures will prevent Elliott's trading personnel from use
or misuse of non-public information obtained by Elliott's
personnel engaged in Committee related activities and also will
preclude Committee Personnel from receiving inappropriate
information regarding Elliott's trading in the Covered Claims in
advance of those trades.  As evidence of its implementation of
the Screening Wall, Elliott's Committee Personnel each filed with
the Court a declaration stating that the individuals will comply
with the terms and procedures set forth in Elliott's Motion or
otherwise approved by the U.S. Trustee, full-text copies of which
are available for free at:

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

Matthew J. Gold, Esq., at Kleinberg, Kaplan, Wolf & Cohen, P.C.,
in New York, argues that although members of the Committee owe
fiduciary duties to the creditors of the Debtors' estates,
Elliott also has fiduciary duties to maximize returns to its
clients through trading securities.  If Elliott is barred from
trading the Covered Claims during the pendency of these
bankruptcy cases because of its duties to other creditors, it may
risk the loss of a beneficial investment opportunity for itself
or its clients and, may breach its fiduciary duty to its clients,
he stresses.  In the alternative, if Elliott is compelled to
resign from the Committee because of its inability to trade for
the benefit of itself and its clients, its interests may be
compromised by virtue of taking a less active role in the
reorganization process, he points out.  Accordingly, Elliott
should not be forced to choose between serving on the Committee
and risking the loss of beneficial investment opportunities or
service on the Committee and possibly compromising its
responsibilities by taking a less active role in the
reorganization process, particularly because its service as a
Committee member benefits all unsecured creditors, he maintains.

In a related request, Elliott asks the Court to shorten the
notice period and consider its request on November 16, 2011.

MF GLOBAL: T. Butler, et al., Want Lift Stay to Withdraw Accounts
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Thomas A. Butler, Jr.; James H. Barton, Jr.; Stuart Satullo; and
Adam Loos ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District
of New York to lift the automatic stay to permit them to
withdraw, or transfer to an account maintained at a registered
Futures Commission Merchant, 85% of the cash holdings in their
segregated customer commodity accounts at MF Global Inc.

Mr. Butler and the other movants each are engaged as a broker in
the commodities trading industry.  They maintained an individual
segregated customer account at MF Global and used that segregated
customer account to engage in commodity contract trades in their
own name.  Each of the movants had relied upon his segregated
customer account, and the funds in that account, at MF Global as
his sole means of commodity trading for his own account.  On or
after October 31, 2011, the Brokers have liquidated all of their
open trading positions in their segregated customer accounts and
now hold only cash in their account.  All of the funds in the
segregated customer accounts represent the funds deposited by
each of the Brokers into his segregated customer account, less
any losses and plus any profits generated in the commodity
trading activity in the account.

Timothy F. Butler, Esq., at Tibbets Keating & Butler, LLC, in New
York -- tbutler@tkblaw.com -- asserts that cause exists to lift
the automatic stay because the conditions requiring relief from
the automatic stay under Section 362(d)(2) of the Bankruptcy Code
are satisfied here.  For one, MG Global does not have any equity
interest in the cash in the segregated customer accounts
maintained by the Brokers, he contends.   Moreover, 85% of the
cash in the segregated accounts maintained by the brokers is not
necessary for an effective reorganization of MF Global in light
of its liquidation case, he argues.  In contrast, granting the
request will serve the same public interest the Bulk Transfer
Order was designed to promote -- an orderly and efficient
commodities trading market, according to him.

The Brokers have contacted counsel for the SIPA Trustee and the
Commodities Futures Trading Commission to garner their support
for this application.  The Brokers were advised that they are
working to a resolution of this issue, a future course of action
has yet to be agreed upon, Mr. Butler discloses.

MF GLOBAL: Notifies of Late Filing of Q3 Financial Reports
----------------------------------------------------------
MF Global Holdings Ltd. filed with the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission on November 9, 2011, a notice of late filing
of consolidated financial statements for the period ended
September 30, 2011.

MF Global Holdings Ltd. is not able to file its Quarterly Report
on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2011 in a timely
manner.  As previously disclosed, on October 31, 2011, (i) the
Company and its subsidiary, MF Global Finance USA Inc. filed
voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of the United
States Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York; (ii) the Securities Investor
Protection Corporation initiated proceedings in the United States
District Court for the Southern District of New York for the
liquidation of the business of MF Global Inc., the principal U.S.
operating subsidiary of the Company, which was subsequently
removed to the Bankruptcy Court (Case No. 11-279- (MG) SIPA); and
(3) MF Global UK Limited, the Company's principal U.K. operating
subsidiary, entered the U.K.'s Special Administration Regime.
Since that time, the Company has been immersed in bankruptcy-
related matters, and additional operating subsidiaries throughout
the world, including in Singapore, Australia, and Canada, have
been placed into administration or receivership.

As a result of these developments, the Company is no longer in
control of its principal operating subsidiaries, has minimal
operations and is not generating cash, and substantially all of
the Company's employees responsible for periodic financial
reporting have ceased, or will cease, employment with the Company
in the near term, according to MF Global Chief Financial Officer
Henri J. Steenkamp.

Accordingly, the Company is currently unable to complete the
preparation of its consolidated financial statements (and
required pro forma financial information) for the period ended
September 30, 2011 because it does not have the necessary
financial and personnel resources, does not have access to the
books, records and systems of its principal operating
subsidiaries, and does not have the capacity to have its
consolidated financial statements (and related pro forma
financial information) reviewed by the Company's independent
auditors and certified by the Company's current executive
officers.  The Company is uncertain as to when (or whether) it
will be in a position to be able to file these financial
statements and related financial information, Mr. Steenkamp said.
In the interim, the Company anticipates reporting material
developments in the Chapter 11 case on Form 8-K.  The Company
also intends to file on Form 8-K certain public disclosures made
pursuant to obligations under the Bankruptcy Code and its related
rules, such as monthly operating reports disclosing, among other
things, results of operations for the preceding months and
balance sheet information.

The Company anticipates, based on the information currently
available to it, that results of operations for the fiscal
quarter ended September 30, 2011 will be significantly different
from those for the corresponding period for the last fiscal year,
based upon recent significant developments in the business.  The
Company issued a Current Report on Form 8-K on October 25, 2011
containing certain preliminary information relating to its
earnings for the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2011, and
reference is made to that information with regard to the results
for that quarter.

Fidelity Management & Research Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary
of FMR LLC and an investment adviser registered under Section 203
of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, is the beneficial owner
of 89,300 shares or 0.054% of the Common Stock outstanding of the
Company as a result of acting as investment adviser to various
investment companies registered under Section 8 of the Investment
Company Act of 1940.

Johnson family group and all other Series B shareholders have
entered into a shareholders' voting agreement under which all
Series B voting common shares will be voted in accordance with
the majority vote of Series B voting common shares.  Accordingly,
through their ownership of voting common shares and the execution
of the shareholders' voting agreement, members of the Johnson
family may be deemed, under the Investment Company Act of 1940,
to form a controlling group with respect to FMR LLC.

Neither FMR LLC nor Edward C. Johnson 3d, Chairman of FMR LLC,
has the sole power to vote or direct the voting of the shares
owned directly by the Fidelity Funds, which power resides with
the Funds' Boards of Trustees.  Fidelity carries out the voting
of the shares under written guidelines established by the Funds'
Boards of Trustees.

FMR LLC and an investment adviser registered under Section 203 of
the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, is the beneficial owner of

Pyramis Global Advisors Trust Company, an indirect wholly-owned
subsidiary of FMR LLC and a bank as defined in Section 3(a)(6) of
the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, is the beneficial owner of

of the Common Stock outstanding of the Company.

Partnerships controlled predominantly by members of the family of
Edward C. Johnson 3d, Chairman of FMR LLC and FIL, or trusts for
their benefit, own shares of FIL voting stock.  While the
percentage of total voting power represented by these shares may
fluctuate as a result of changes in the total number of shares of
FIL voting stock outstanding from time to time, it normally
represents more than 25% and less than 50% of the total votes
which may be cast by all holders of FIL voting stock.  FMR LLC
and FIL are separate and independent corporate entities, and
their Boards of Directors are generally composed of different
individuals.

FMR LLC and FIL are of the view that they are not acting as a
"group" for purposes of Section 13(d) under the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934 and that they are not otherwise required to
attribute to each other the "beneficial ownership" of securities
"beneficially owned" by the other corporation within the meaning
of Rule 13d-3 promulgated under the 1934 Act.  Thus, they are of
the view that the shares held by the other corporation need not
be aggregated for purposes of Section 13(d).  However, FMR LLC is
making this filing on a voluntary basis as if all of the shares
are beneficially owned by FMR LLC and FIL on a joint basis.

FIL has sole dispositive power over 580,510 shares owned by the
International Funds.  FIL has sole power to vote or direct the
voting of 526,910 shares and no power to vote or direct the
voting of 53,600 shares of Common Stock held by the International

MF GLOBAL: CFTC Confirms Probe on Missing $600-Mil.
---------------------------------------------------
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) announced on
November 10, 2011 that Commissioner Jill E. Sommers will be
acting as the senior Commissioner for the agency in matters
relating to the bankruptcy of MF Global, Inc. (MFGI) and the
shortfall of funds in MFGI's segregated accounts containing
customer property and funds.  The announcement comes after
Chairman Gensler recused himself from matters relating to MFGI.
The designation of Commissioner Sommers is effective immediately.

On October 31, 2011, the Commission's Division of Enforcement
opened an investigation into whether the Commodity Exchange Act
(CEA) or Commission regulations were violated in connection with
MFGI, and the Commission has authorized the Division to issue
subpoenas.

While the Commission normally does not comment on investigations,
the Commission has determined it is in the public interest to
confirm the existence of this particular investigation.  The
Commission does not intend to provide details concerning the
developments of the Enforcement investigation.

"Segregation of customer funds is at the core of customer
protection in the commodity futures and options markets and must
be maintained at all times," said Commissioner Sommers.  "I have
complete confidence in the dedicated men and women in Enforcement
to carry out the necessary investigation to get to the bottom of
what happened at MFGI.  Aside from the investigation, we will do
everything in our power to ensure public confidence in the
markets by directing a review of clearing futures commission
merchants (FCMs) to determine that segregated funds are being
properly maintained in accordance with the CEA and Commission
regulations."

Commission staff has been monitoring the transfer of customer
positions held by MFGI, almost all of which have been transferred
to other registered FCMs.

Unable to answer when the search for the $600 million of missing
customer funds might conclude, the trustee overseeing the
liquidation of MF's brokerage moved to deflect mounting pressure
to give back more of that collateral, saying he could not yet
legally release individuals' funds, Reuters stated in a separate
report.

James Giddens, trustee for the liquidation of MFGI, however
indicated that customer payouts may not be far off as he is
seeking approval of the claim submission process for customers on
an expedited basis, the report said.  Assuming the Court approves
the process, payouts may begin in increments as the SIPA Trustee
continues the process of making sure all of the brokerage's
customer assets are accounted for, according to the SIPA
Trustee's statement.

Reuters disclosed that there are growing concerns that regulators
may be unable to find the missing customer funds, at least in a
state where it can be paid back to creditors.

"Our forensic investigators have been there since last week, and
nothing we have found so far causes us to think anything other
than there is an apparent shortfall at MF," said Kent Jarrell, a
spokesman for the SIPA Trustee, according to Reuters.  Mr.
Giddens also said he was not able to authorize the transfer of
individual accounts until all claims had been made, the report
said.  If customers still have shortfalls after the claims
process, they would be forced to join the bankruptcy queue as
"unsecured creditors," Mr. Giddens said in a statement, Reuters
related.

Reuters commented that this will only infuriate commodity traders
who argue that, since only about 11 percent of the estimated $5.5
billion in segregated funds is missing, the court should be able
to release another tranche.  They estimate that just over half
has been dispersed in the form of collateral on open trades, the
report added.

Moreover, IntercontinentalExchange Inc. has joined the growing
number of commodity traders calling for MF Global's bankruptcy
court to release billions of dollars in cash frozen in their
accounts, Reuters said.  In a letter to the Court, ICE urged the
Court to immediately permit the release of as much of the cash
balance as possible that remains in the accounts of these
liquidating and transferring customers at MF Global," the report
stated.

In addition to the CFTC's investigation, the FBI has shown a
preliminary interest in regulatory probes looking into the
missing funds, the report added.

MF GLOBAL: Asian Business Units to Be Sold Separately
-----------------------------------------------------
MF Global's liquidators are struggling to sell the Asian business
because of problems unwinding trading positions so they may now
sell the various country units separately, Rachel Armstrong and
Bruce Hextall of Reuters reported.

"The complexities and challenges arising from the Chapter 11
filing in New York, as clients and exchanges have sought to
unwind and minimize client exposures, have meant that the bidders
were not able to reach the point where terms could be agreed in
the time available," Patrick Cowley, a principal at KPMG in Hong
Kong, explained to Reuters.

The move to sell the Asian units individually marks a setback for
the liquidators, who previously said there were more than 50
interested parties for the Asia-Pacific business of the collapsed
U.S. brokerage, meaning they were confident they could sell the
franchise as a whole, Reuters wrote.

In Australia, the administrators said on Nov. 4 they hoped the
sale of the business would be completed by the end of next week,
the report noted.  "The data room for the local business is open,
confidentiality agreements have been signed by a number of
parties.  We are hoping to get indicative bids in by Wednesday
and close it out by next Friday," said Chris Campbell, a partner
at administrator Deloitte, Reuters relayed.  The Australian unit
administrator also advised its clients that they will have wait a
while longer before they can have their money returned, Reuters
related.

Mr. Campbell estimated they have nearly half the total funds owed
to the Australian business's clients in cash, with most of the
remainder tied up with counterparties, Reuters disclosed.
Counterparties owed MF Global Australia A$167 million ($168.7
million), or just over half the A$313 million of client funds, he
said, the report relayed.  The process would take more than three
months but less than a year assuming all data was received and
reconciled, he added, the report said.

MF GLOBAL: CME Promises $300MM to Help Former MF Global Clients
---------------------------------------------------------------
Jacob Bunge and Aaron Lucchetti of The Wall Street Journal
reported that CME Group, Inc., took the unusual step of promising
$300 million worth of its own money to help MF Global Holdings
Ltd.'s customers in an effort to calm those clients affected by
the securities firm's collapse.

CME's move was also aimed at hastening the release of customer
cash and other collateral trapped in the securities firm after
its bankruptcy, the report said.  "We believe this extraordinary
measure is necessary to ensure that all customers are treated
fairly during the unique and challenging circumstances
surrounding MF Global's failure," CME Chief Executive Officer
Craig Donohue was quoted as saying by the Journal.

The move also came as the trustee overseeing the liquidation of
MF Global Inc. said that the brokerage unit would lay off all of
its 1,066 employees before rehiring 150 to 200 of them to wind
down the unit's operation, the Journal disclosed.

CME said its money would be available to the SIPA Trustee so that
he could speed up repayment to customers who need the money to
trade but now face long delays in getting to their funds through
the bankruptcy, according to the Journal.  James Giddens, trustee
for the liquidation of MFGI, indicated that he would not say
whether the CME funds would help speed the process of getting
more money back to customers, the report noted.  "We look forward
to seeing the details of the CME proposal and hope it might help
us as we develop an expedited claims process," said Kent Jarrell,
a spokesperson for the SIPA Trustee, the report relayed.

Former MF Global customers had mixed feelings regarding the CME
proposal, the Journal said.  "This is a great, albeit late, start
by the CME," said James L. Koutoulas, CEO of Typhon, a commodity-
fund manager, the report relayed.  James Bower, president of
commodities brokerage firm Bower Trading, whose clients have more
than $8 million stuck at MF Global, added, "The money needs to be
given back to the rightful owners," the report quoted.

According to the report, the $300 million aid package would be
split between a $250 million financial guarantee to the SIPA
Trustee and a $50 million payment made available from CME Trust -
- a fund set up to repay customer money lost in the failure of a
clearinghouse member.

If the SIPA Trustee manages to recover all the funds belonging to
customers of MF Global, CME's promised money would not be drawn,
the Journal noted.  However, if there is a shortfall, the funds
could be used to make up the difference, leaving CME to shoulder
the bill, the report added.

MF GLOBAL: Louis J. Freeh Appointed as Chapter 11 Trustee
---------------------------------------------------------
Judge Martin Glenn of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of New York directed the appointment of a Chapter 11
trustee in the Chapter 11 cases of MF Global Holdings Ltd. and MF
Global Finance USA Inc.

On November 25, 2011, Tracy Hope Davis, the U.S. Trustee for
Region 2, notified the Court of the appointment of Louis J. Freeh
as Chapter 11 trustee of the Debtors' bankruptcy cases, subject to
Court approval.

In a joint request, the Debtors and the Official Committee of
Unsecured Creditors wanted the appointment of a Chapter 11 trustee
to reorganize or liquidate the Debtors' assets for the benefit of
the Debtors' assets, their creditors, and other stakeholders.

J. Gregory Milmoe, Esq., at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom
LLP, in New York, reminded the Court that the primary objective
for the duration of the Debtors' Chapter 11 cases is the orderly
wind-down of the Debtors' various assets, including, the Debtors'
intercompany claims against, and indirect equity interests in, the
Company's regulated subsidiaries.  The value of these claims and
interests will depend upon the expeditious resolution of thousands
of transactions at these subsidiaries and the prompt remittance to
the Debtors of the excess, he pointed out.  However, most of the
Company's businesses are now in the hands of various court
appointed administrators and regulators, he said.  These
administrators are focused on the parochial issues and
requirements of their individual estates, he added.

Against this backdrop, a Chapter 11 trustee will be able to
facilitate global cooperation and still advocate with the
Creditors' Committee for the prompt return of the excess funds
which rightfully belong to the Debtors, Mr. Milmoe said.  The
appointment of a Chapter 11 Trustee will also be better able to,
in collaboration with the Creditors' Committee, manage and
coordinate the investigations in a manner that will be more
efficient and cost effective than could be achieved by debtors in
possession, he insisted.

Mr. Milmoe emphasized that despite the Debtors' best efforts and
extensive negotiations with potential lenders, the Debtors have
not yet received a binding commitment for debtor-in-possession
financing.  Premised upon the appointment or election of a
suitable Chapter 11 trustee, the lenders under the $1.2 billion
Liquidity Facility for which JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A. acts as
administrative agent, have agreed to make the approximately $26
million in cash collateral available to fund the Debtors Chapter
11 cases subject to negotiation of an acceptable revised cash
collateral order in its discretion, he disclosed.

Indeed, the Debtors' board members, who would be stepping aside
upon the appointment of a Chapter 11 trustee, have pledged their
continuing cooperation to the Chapter 11 trustee to ensure a
smooth transition, according to Mr. Milmoe.  More importantly, the
appointment of an appropriate Chapter 11 trustee is a condition to
the use of additional cash collateral necessary to fund the wind
down and maximize the value available to the Debtors' creditors
and interest holders, he stated.

              U.S. Trustee Appoints Louis J. Freeh
                   as Chapter 11 Trustee

Mr. Freeh must obtain a bond in an amount not less than $26
million pursuant to Section 322 of the Bankruptcy Code.

Section 322 provides that a person selected to serve a Chapter 11
trustee qualifies if, five days before selection, and before
beginning official duties, the person has filed with the court a
bond in favor of the U.S. Government conditioned on the faithful
performance of the official duties.

Pursuant to Section 1104(d) of the Bankruptcy Code, the U.S.
Trustee disclosed that he consulted with certain parties-in-
interest in making her appointment, namely:

  (a) J. Gregory Milmoe, Esq. and Kenneth S. Ziman, Esq. of
      Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, proposed counsel
      to the Debtors;

  (b) Martin J. Bienenstock, Esq. of Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP,
      counsel to the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors;

  (c) Peter Pantaleo, Esq. of Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP,
      counsel to JP Morgan Chase Bank N.A.

  (d) Patricia Schrage of the U.S. Securities Exchange
      Commission;

  (e) Jeannette Vargas, Esq. Chief of the Tax and Bankruptcy
      Unit of the U. S. Attorney's Office.

The U.S. Trustee also considered nominations made by other
parties-in-interest in the Debtors' Chapter 11 cases.  After
consultation with the parties-in-interest, the U.S. Trustee
selected Mr. Freeh as the Chapter 11 Trustee in the Debtors'
bankruptcy cases.

In an accompanying declaration, Mr. Freeh, founder and chairman of
Freeh Group International Solutions, LLC, and founder and senior
managing partner of Freeh Sporkin & Sullivan LLP, disclosed that
he does not personally have any connections with any interested
party in the Debtors' Chapter 11 cases, except that FGIS and FSS
have certain connections in matters unrelated to the Debtors'
Chapter 11 cases, a list of which is available for free at:

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

Mr. Freeh was Federal Bureau of Investigation director under U.S.
President Bill Clinton from 1993 to 2011.  He, according to
Bloomberg News, worked as an FBI agent and later became federal
prosecutor and judge, appointed to the bench in 1991 by President
George H.W. Bush.

Mr. Freeh stepped down from the FBI in 2001 and formed a risk
management company and a law firm in 2007.  Mr. Freeh has served
as independent monitor in a probe by the U.S. Department of
Justice of Daimler AG in 2010 and headed a 2008 investigation of
energy trading losses that led to the bankruptcy of SemGroup LP,
Bloomberg added.

This week, Mr. Freeh was hired to conduct an independent probe of
the child sex-abuse scandal at Pennsylvania State University,
Bloomberg related.  Mr. Freeh's company was also retained to
review security for the SAT college-admissions test, according to
the Educational Testing Service of Princeton, New Jersey, and the
New York-based College Board, the report added.

Mr. Freeh related that to ensure that as Chapter 11 Trustee he
will remain disinterested throughout the term of his appointment,
FGIS and FSS agree that they will not represent any client other
than him in connection with the Debtors' Chapter 11 cases.

Otherwise, Mr. Freeh insisted that he is a "disinterested person"
as the term is defined in Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code.

Accordingly, the U.S. Trustee asks Judge Glenn to approve the
appointment of Mr. Freeh as the Chapter 11 Trustee.

MONTANA ELECTRIC: US Trustee to Name Freeman as Bankruptcy Trustee
------------------------------------------------------------------
Richard Ecke at greatfallstribune.com reports that Lee A. Freeman
Jr., was expected to be appointed on Nov. 28, 2011, as trustee for
the bankrupt Southern Montana Electric Generation & Transmission
Cooperative.

According to the report, Dan McKay of Great Falls, an attorney for
the United States Trustee Program, notes that Mr. Freeman was his
choice for the job.  "It is my intention to appoint Lee A. Freeman
as trustee in this case, and the appointment notice will be filed
on Monday," the report quotes Mr. McKay as saying.

The report relates that Mr. Freeman, who continues to practice
from Livingston, is a prominent antitrust attorney who also has
done some work with power utilities.  He represented the
Washington Public Power Supply System in an action against Western
Nuclear Inc., enabling WPPSS to cancel more than $100 million in
uranium contracts.  In the 1980s, the Washington agency
canceled plans for two new nuclear power plants amid overruns,
environmental concerns and other factors in a mess that ran from
the 1970s into the 1990s.

Lee A. Freeman, Jr. -- Mrazek68@gmail.com -- is Of Counsel to
Katten & Temple LLP.  He was previously a partner in the law firm
of Freeman, Freeman & Salzman. P.C. in Chicago from 1968 to 2007,

                      About Southern Montana

Based in Billings, Montana, Southern Montana Electric Generation
And Transmission Cooperative, Inc., was formed to serve five
other electric cooperatives.  The city of Great Falls later joined
as the sixth member.  Including the city, the co-op serves a
population of 122,000.  In addition to Great Falls, the service
area includes suburbs of Billings, Montana.

Southern Montana filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. D.
Mont. Case No. 11-62031) on Oct. 21, 2011.  Southern Montana
estimated assets of $100 million to $500 million and estimated
debts of $100 million to $500 million.  Timothy Gregori signed the
petition as general manager.

Jon E. Doak, Esq., at Doak & Associates, P.C., in Billings,
Montana, serves as the Debtor's counsel.

Standard & Poor's Ratings Services in October lowered its issuer
credit rating on SME to 'CC' from 'BBB', and placed the rating on
CreditWatch with developing implications.  These actions follow
the cooperative's Oct. 21 bankruptcy filing under Chapter 11 of
the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.  According to SME, the filing was in
response to failure on the part of some of its members to honor
contractual obligations, including payment to the cooperative for
services.


MRA PELICAN: Fannie Mae Paid Over 7 Years Under Amended Plan
------------------------------------------------------------
MRA Pelican Pointe Apartments, LLC, has filed a disclosure
statement in support of its amended Chapter 11 Plan of
Reorganization with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of Florida.

Through the Plan, as filed on Oct. 27, 2011, the Debtor will
provide a 100% disbursement to the Allowed Fannie Mae Secured
Claim.  The holders of Allowed Pre-Petition Lender Claims will
waive their Claims and receive no distribution on account of their
Allowed Claims.  In exchange for waiving the Allowed Pre-Petition
Lender Claims and providing the New Value Payments totaling
$1,400,000.00, Samuel Weiss, or his designee, will be issued 100%
of New Equity in the Reorganized Debtor.

The Plan further provides that on or before the Effective Date, a
third party insider will provide the Debtor with $1,000,000, which
will be distributed to Fannie Mae on the Effective Date.
Additionally, a third party insider will also provide the Debtor
with $200,000 on or before the Effective Date, and $200,000 on or
before six months after the Effective Date.  The Debtor may
utilize the Second New Value Payment and Third New Value Payment
to fund any Plan Shortfall, Operational Shortfall, or other
monetary shortfall under the Plan.

Under the Debtor's Plan, Class 1, Class 2, Class 3, Class 6 and
Class 7 are impaired and entitled to vote on the Plan.  Class 4
and Class 5 are unimpaired, and are conclusively presumed to have
accepted the Plan.  Class 8 receives no distribution under the
Plan and thus, is deemed to have rejected the Plan.  Class 7,
Class 8, and Class 9 include Insider Claims and Interests whose
votes are not calculated when determining whether the Plan has
been accepted or rejected.

The Amended Plan designates eight Classes of Claims and one Class
of Interests.

Class 1 consists of the Allowed Fannie Mae Secured Claim with an
estimated allowed amount of $14,629,030.  On the Effective Date,
Class 1 will receive, in full satisfaction, settlement, release,
extinguishment and discharge of such Claim:

  i) retention of a lien equal to the total amount of the Allowed
     Fannie Mae Secured Claim;

ii) payment of the First New Value Payment of $1,000,000 on the
     Effective Date, which amount will be applied to the principal
     balance of the loan;

iii) payment of $360,000 from funds from the Debtor's operations
     held by the Receiver on the Effective Date, which amount
     will be applied to the principal balance of the loan;

iv) beginning one month after the Effective Date, monthly
     payments, with an interest rate of 4%, or as otherwise
     determined by the Court, on the principal balance of the
     loan, amortized over thirty (30) years, for a period of seven
     years, with a balloon payment at the end of the seventh
     year in an amount that provides Fannie Mae with the total
     amount of its Allowed Fannie Mae Secured Claim; provided
     that, for the first three years, the monthly payments will
     constitute interest only, and for the remaining four years,
     the monthly payments will constitute principal and interest,
     or repaid pursuant to other terms determined by the Court;
     and

  v) fifteen days after the anniversary of the Effective Date, and
     each year thereafter until the total amount of the Allowed
     Fannie Mae Secured Claim has been paid, annual payments of
     any profit earned by the Debtor after the Debtor pays for
     operating expenses, reasonable capital expenditures, debt
     service, taxes, and any other obligation set forth in the
     Plan, which amount will be applied to the principal balance
     of the loan.  Loan documents relating to the Allowed Fannie
     Mae Secured Claim are modified to eliminate any provisions
     regarding: (i) prepayment premiums or penalties; (ii) yield
     maintenance; and (iii) any financial defaults based upon any
     financial ratios.  The Class 1 Claim is Impaired.

The Debtor does not believe that there are any Class 2 Allowed
Other Lenders Secured Claims, and included the Class as a
precaution.  Class 2 Claims will be paid over time.  The Class 2
Claim is Impaired.

On the Effective Date, Allowed Lien Holders Secured Claims in
Class 3 will receive monthly payments, with an interest rate of
4%, or as otherwise determined by the Court, amortized over thirty
(30) years, for a period of seven years, with a balloon payment at
the end of the seventh year.  The Class 3 Claim is Impaired.

On the Effective Date, Allowed Secured Taxing Authority Claims in
Class 4 will receive, in full satisfaction, settlement, release,
extinguishment and discharge of such Claim, payment in the
ordinary course, upon the latter of (i) the Effective Date, or,
(ii) the date on which an order approving payment of such Allowed
Secured Taxing Authority Claim becomes a Final Order, generated
from the Debtor's business operations.  All holders of such Claims
will be deemed to have accepted the Plan.  The Class 4 Claim is
Unimpaired.

Allowed Unsecured Priority Claims in Class 5 will be paid after
all Allowed Administrative Claims are paid in full from the
Debtor's business operations.  All holders of such Claims will be
deemed to have accepted the Plan.  The Class 5 Claim is
Unimpaired.

On the Effective Date, Allowed General Unsecured Claims in Class 6
(estimated at $100,000) will receive quarterly payments of
principal and interest, with an interest rate of 4%, or as
otherwise determined by the Court, for a period of three years in
an amount that provides each holder of an Allowed General
Unsecured Claim the total amount of its Allowed General Unsecured
Claim, with no prepayment penalty, generated from the Debtor's
business operations.  The Class 6 Claims are Impaired.

On the Effective Date, Allowed Subordinated Unsecured Claims in
Class 7 will receive quarterly payments of interest only for a
period of seven years, with an interest rate of 4%, or as
otherwise determined by the Court, with a balloon payment at the
end of the seventh year in an amount that provides each holder of
the Allowed Subordinated Unsecured Claim the total amount of its
Allowed Claim, with no prepayment penalty.  The Class 7 Claim is
Impaired.

On the Effective Date, each holder of an Allowed Pre-Petition
Lender Claim in Class 8 will waive its Allowed Pre-Petition Lender
Claim and will receive no Distribution under the Plan on account
of such Claim.  The holder of a Class 8 Claim will be deemed to
have rejected the Plan.  The Class 8 Claim is Impaired.

On the Effective Date, in exchange for waiving its Allowed Pre-
Petition Lender Claims, and providing the New Value Payments
totaling $1,400,000, the Debtor will cancel all Old Equity
Interests in Class 9, and issue 100% of New Equity to Samuel
Weiss, or his designee.  The New Equity will be held in escrow
until all payments under the Plan have been provided to Fannie
Mae.  The holders of any Old Equity Interest will receive no
Distribution under the Plan on account of such Old Equity
Interests.  The Class 9 Claims are Impaired.

NATIONAL GRAPHICS: May Use Cash Collateral Through Dec. 13
----------------------------------------------------------
National Graphics, Inc., won interim Court authority to use cash
collateral through and including Dec. 13, 2011, to pay ordinary
and necessary business expenses.  However, the Debtor is not
authorized to pay rent or any expense outside the ordinary course
of business without further Court order.

PAC & G LLC, which holds secured debt against National Graphics,
challenged the request.  PAC said the Debtor is proposing to use
PAC's collateral but did not specifically identify the collateral.
Moreover, PAC said the value of the collateral is declining.

In turn, the Debtor said it suspects PAC's motive and alleges PAC
is trying to put the Debtor out of business.  In its Cash
Collateral Motion, the Debtor said it doesn't propose to provide
cash payment to PAC as adequate protection.  According to the
Debtor, PAC thinks the assets have significant value, pointing out
that PAC bought the secured debt at par.  Granting PAC a
replacement lien, to the same extent, with the same priority, and
in the same collateral, and subject to the same defenses, as PAC
held prepetition, will more than adequately protect it from
potential diminution in value of its collateral, the Debtor said.

PAC acquired the $326,936 debt from Park Bank, the Debtor's
lender.  The Bank had obtained a money judgment for that amount
and an order for replevin against the Debtor.

In its reply to the Debtor's request, PAC denies any malicious
intent to eliminate a competitor, pointing out that Pacur LLC, one
of PAC's owners, supplies its products to the Debtor.

Pursuant to the Court's order, PAC is given adequate protection
for the Debtor's interim use of cash collateral, consisting of:

     -- a replacement lien of the same priority, to the same
        extent, and subject to the same defenses, if any, as PAC
        had prepetition;

     -- other forms of adequate protection:

        * Starting Nov. 16 and on each Wednesday thereafter until
          the final hearing on cash collateral, the Debtor will
          file with the Court a weekly report of cash flow for the
          preceding week;

        * The Debtor will provide an amended cash collateral
          budget for anticipated future expenses to PAC and the
          United States Trustee by Dec. 6, 2011; and

        * The Debtor will add PAC as an additional loss payee, and
          the United States Trustee as a co-certificate holder, on
          its property and casualty insurance policy.

A hearing on the Debtor's motion for final use of cash collateral
is set for Dec. 13, 2011, at 3:00 p.m.

National Graphics blamed PAC for the bankruptcy filing.  Court
papers filed by the Debtor recount that Travel Tags, an affiliate
of one of the largest printers in the nation, owes the Debtor over
$200,000 in royalties under a license agreement. However, those
funds have been withheld because of a cloud on the Debtor's title
to the patents as the result of a claim raised by Timothy Goggins
in litigation currently pending in Waukesha County Circuit Court
and scheduled to go to trial on Nov. 29, 2011.

No longer an employee of the Debtor, Mr. Goggins is affiliated
with Pacur, the Oshkosh plastics manufacturer whose former chief
executive, Ron Johnson, was elected to the United States Senate.
Pacur sells plastics to customers for use in lenticular printing.
Pacur has sought for years to acquire the Debtor's patents.

Largely as a result of the Litigation and the ensuing cloud on the
Debtor's title to its patents, the Debtor said it has found itself
in financial difficulty.  Without clear title to the patents, the
Debtor cannot license its intellectual property, and cannot even
collect royalties on its existing license.  Without the revenue
sources, the Debtor was unable to remain current on its secured
debt with Park Bank.

In October 2011, Pacur and Mr. Goggins formed PAC for the purpose
of acquiring the Park Bank debt.

The Debtor said Mr. Goggins has shown a marked aversion to going
to trial.  After PAC acquired Park Bank's judgment, Mr. Goggins
moved in the Litigation to dismiss it or for a stay of the trial,
on the ground that, before the parties had a chance to get to
trial, PAC would have exercised its Article 9 rights to foreclose
on the Debtor's assets.  PAC gave notice of an Article 9 private
sale to be conducted on Nov. 14 -- in advance of a scheduled Nov.
16 hearing on Mr. Goggins' motion to dispense with trial, and the
Debtor's motion for reconsideration of an order that denied it
summary judgment.

PAC also attempted to have the Waukesha County Sheriff replevy all
of the Debtor's tangible personal property, including its
computers and records.  A sheriff's deputy showed up at the
Debtor's plant the morning of Nov. 7, and advised the Debtor that
a truck would be coming to haul away all of the Debtor's property
in four hours.  This turn of events, National Graphics said,
forced it to file "the Chapter 11 case a little faster than it
might otherwise have."

                    About National Graphics

National Graphics, Inc., based in Brookfield, Wisconsin, is
engaged in the printing business, and in particular the lenticular
printing business.  Lenticular printing is a process that
generates a three-dimensional image.  It generates cash from the
printing of three-dimensional images, as well as the licensing of
various patents for lenticular printing processes.  Its principal
assets are 21 patents relating to lenticular printing, and
potential claims for infringement of those patents.  The patents
have value not only for use in the company's operations, but also
because the patents can be licensed.

National Graphics filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. E.D.
Wis. Case No. 11-36818) in Milwaukee on Nov. 7, 2011, estimating
assets of $10 million to $50 million, and debts of $1 million to

NORTHCORE TECHNOLOGIES: Holders to Convert Remaining Debentures
---------------------------------------------------------------
Northcore Technologies Inc. has received notice from all remaining
corporate debenture holders of their intention to exercise the
conversion to share option.

This process includes the conversion of $210,000 of 10 percent
Series L Convertible Debentures maturing March 31, 2013, and
$535,000 of 10 percent Series N Convertible Debentures maturing
Dec. 12, 2011, into an aggregate 7,450,000 common shares of the

retired all of the original principal amounts of the Series L and

removal of all remaining, non-operational debt from the
corporation.

"This is a significant milestone in the evolution of the new

of my oft stated critical objectives was to ensure that we ended
the 2011 calendar year with a dramatically improved balance sheet.
There is no doubt that this conversion represents a major
contribution towards this goal.  We deeply appreciate this vote of
confidence from the note holders and will continue to focus on the
execution of our strategic plan to the benefit of all
stakeholders."

PALISADES 6300: Wants Access to U.S. Bank's Cash Collateral
-----------------------------------------------------------
Palisades 6300 West Lake Mead, LLC, asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the District of Nevada for authorization to use cash
collateral which U.S. Bank National Association asserts an
interest.

The Debtor is owed to Bank of America, N.A., as original lender;
Wells Fargo Bank Minnesota, N.A., as trustee and thereafter
through a series of internal mergers was ultimately assigned to
U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee.

The current balance owing on the note is in dispute.  The Debtor
believes the loan amount to be approximately $14,700,000.

The Debtor will use the cash collateral to fund its business
operations.

The Debtor intends to restructure the USB loan through a Chapter
11 Plan.  Pursuant to USB's appraisal of the property, the value
of the property exceeds the amount of the loan owed to USB.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Oct. 24, 2011,
US Bank National Association -- as trustee for registered holders
of First Union National Bank - Bank of America NA Commercial
Mortgage Trust, Commercial Mortgage Pass-Through Certificates,
Series 2001-C1 -- advised the Court that US Bank does not consent
to Palisades 6300 West Lake Mead LLC's use of cash collateral.

The lender based its non-consent on the ground that it maintains a
first priority, properly perfected lien in, among other things,
all proceeds, rents, royalties, and income from certain real
property owned by the Debtor.

             About Palisades 6300 West Lake Mead LLC

Palisades 6300 West Lake Mead LLC filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy
(Bankr. D. Nev. Case No. 11-26180) on Oct. 13, 2011.  Judge Linda
B. Riegle oversees the case.  Marjorie A. Guymon, Esq., at
Goldsmith & Guymon, P.C., serves as the Debtor's bankruptcy
counsel.  In its schedules, the Debtor disclosed $17,452,917 in
assets and $14,733,148 in liabilities.


PALISADES 6300: Wants to Pay Vendor Claims for Continued Services
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Palisades 6300 West lake Mead, LLC, asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the District of Nevada to enter an interim order requiring the
utilities to continue to provide utility services based upon the
adequate assurances pais in the form of security deposits on hand;
and authorize payment of critical vendors' claims.

The Debtor related that to continue business operations, the
Debtor needs continued electricity, gas, water, telephone, sewer,
trash and other similar services for the building -- a large
apartment complex consisting of approximately 280 units.

The Debtor proposes that since it is current with many of its
utilities and critical vendors, this must be sufficient adequate
assurance of future payment.  The Debtor seeks permission to pay
the prepetition amount due and owing to these utilities:

   1. Las Vegas Water District
   2. Southwest Gas
   3. Republic Services

The Debtor also has critical vendors with balances owing at the
time of filing.  These critical vendors that the Debtor would like
to pay for prepetition services consist of:

   a. Employer's Insurance Co. -- $719
   b. Escalera Maintenance Corp. -- $2,650
   c. Keystone Carpet Care -- $3,335
   d. Home A/C & Heating Co. -- $3,512

The Debtor would like to cure prepetition arrears owing to the
vendors to receive continued services from them.  It would be
difficult for the Debtor to find alternative sources for the
services and they are essential to its business operations.

No trustee or examiner has been appointed in the case, and no
committee has been appointed ore designated by the U.S. Trustee.

plummet.


PMI GROUP: Taps Kurtzman Carson Consultants as Claims Agent
-----------------------------------------------------------
The PMI Group, Inc., seeks the authority of the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the District of Delaware to employ Kurtzman Carson
Consultants LLC as its notice, claims, and solicitation agent.
The Debtor asserts that although the office of the Clerk
ordinarily would serve notices on the Debtor's creditors and other
parties-in-interest and administer claims against the Debtor, the
Clerk's Office may not have the resources to undertake those
tasks, especially in light of the tight timeliness that frequently
arise in the Chapter 11 cases.

Upon retention, Kurtzman Carson will, among other things:

   (a) prepare and serve required notices in the Chapter 11 case;

   (b) within seven days after mailing a particular notice, file
       with the Court a copy of the notice served with a
       certificate of service attached indicating the name and
       complete address of each party served;

   (c) receive, examine, and maintain copies of all proofs of
       claim and proofs of interest filed in the Chapter 11 case;

   (d) maintain an official claims register by docketing all
       proofs of claim and proofs of interest in a claims
       database; and

   (e) record all transfers of clams pursuant to Rule 3001(e) of
       the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure.

The Debtor intends to pay KCC its fees and expenses pursuant to
the terms and conditions set forth in the Services Agreement.  The
Debtor maintains that the fees and expenses incurred by KCC are
administrative in nature and, therefore, should not be subject to
the standard fee application procedures for professionals.

As part of the overall compensation, the Debtor has agreed to
certain indemnification and contribution obligations.

Prior to the Petition Date, the Debtor paid KCC a retainer of
$25,000 as security for pre- and post-petition services rendered
to the Debtor in the preparation of the Debtor's case.

Albert Kass, vice president of Corporate Restructuring Services of
KCC, assures the Court that his firm is a "disinterested person"
as that term is defined in Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code.

Del.-based The PMI Group, Inc., is an insurance holding company
whose stock had, until Oct. 21, 2011, been publicly-traded on the
New York Stock Exchange.  Through its principal regulated
subsidiary, PMI Mortgage Insurance Co., and its affiliated
companies, the Debtor provides residential mortgage insurance in
the United States.

The PMI Group filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. D. Del. Case
No. 11-13730) on Nov. 23, 2011.  The Debtor had total assets of
$225 million and total debts of $736 million.  Stephen Smith
signed the petition as chairman, chief executive officer,
president and chief operating officer.

The Debtor said in the filing that it does not have the financial
resources to pay the outstanding principal amount of the 4.50%

Senior Notes if those amounts were to become due and payable.

As adequate protection for any diminution in value of the lenders'
collateral, the Debtors will grant Amalgamated Bank a replacement
lien on substantially all of the Cash Collateral Debtors' assets
and a superpriority administrative expense claim status, subject

RCR PLUMBING: Court to Consider Further Cash Collateral Use Today
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California
will convene a hearing today, Nov. 29, 2011, at 1:00 p.m., to
consider RCR Plumbing and Mechanical, Inc.'s further use of PNC
Bank, National Association's cash collateral.

Previously, the Court approval stipulations granting the Debtor
its interim use of the cash collateral.

Pursuant to the latest stipulation between the Debtor and PNC
Bank, the initial lender claim objection deadline will be May 1,
2012, not Feb. 1, 2012, and the Court reserves the right to extend
the date further.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Nov. 15, 2011, the
Debtor and lender PNC Bank, National Association entered into
a stipulation which provides that:

   -- the Debtor is authorized to use the cash collateral until
   Nov. 22, 2011, solely to pay the expenses for the period of
   Nov. 1, through the expiration date, to the extent actually
   incurred by the Debtor for its business operations during the
   case, and not to exceed the amounts set forth in the budget by
   more than 10% in the aggregate;

   -- all cash collateral will be deposited by the Debtor into the
   Debtor's bank accounts established at Wells Fargo Bank and will
   be subject yo secured creditors liens (to the same extent,
   validity, and priority as existed as of the Petition Date); and
   the postpetition lien;

   -- the lender agreed to immediately remit to the Debtor any
   payments it received from the Debtor's customers or vendors on
   or after the Petition Date.

   -- as adequate protection from the diminution of the value of
   the lender's collateral, the lender is granted a replacement
   lien in all prepetition and postpetition assets; the Debtor
   will timely pay all non-default fees and charges related to any
   letter of credit issued by the lender in the approximate amount
   of $49,000 per quarter as the amounts become due and payable;

   -- pending a final or further interim hearing on the use of
   cash collateral, the Debtor is authorized to use funds
   aggregating approximately $613,000 contained in debtor-in-
   possession bank accounts at PNC;

   -- the Debtor will maintain at all times casualty and loss
   insurance coverage of the collateral in compliance with the
   U.S. Trustee Guidelines.

As reported in the TCR on Nov. 1, 2011, PNC Bank asserts a
contingent first priority interest in the Debtor's cash based on a
$6.5 million undrawn revolving line of credit.  The Richey Family
Trust is a family trust of the Debtor's president and CEO, Robert
C. Richey.  The trust asserts an interest in the Debtor's cash for
advances made to the Debtor for operations pursuant to a
$1.255 million subordinated note.

REALOGY CORP: Bank Debt Trades at 12% Off in Secondary Market
-------------------------------------------------------------
Participations in a syndicated loan under which Realogy Corp. is a
borrower traded in the secondary market at 87.70 cents-on-the-
dollar during the week ended Friday, Nov. 25, 2011, a drop of 1.43
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 Oct. 10, 2016, and
carries Moody's 'B1' rating and Standard & Poor's 'B-' rating.
The loan is one of the biggest gainers and losers among 114 widely
quoted syndicated loans with five or more bids in secondary
trading for the week ended Friday.

Realogy has 'Caa2' corporate family rating and 'Caa3' probability
of default rating, with positive outlook, from Moody's.  The

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.

In February, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its
corporate credit rating on Realogy Corp. to 'CCC' from 'CC'.  The
rating outlook is positive.


RUDEN MCCLOSKY: Dec. 2 Final Hearing on Berger Singerman Hiring
---------------------------------------------------------------
Ruden McClosky P.A., will return to the Bankruptcy Court in Fort
Lauderdale, Florida, on Dec. 2, 2011 at 9:30 a.m., to seek final
approval of its request to employ Berger Singerman, P.A., as
general counsel.

On Oct. 19, 2011, Berger Singerman received an initial retainer
from the Debtor for $75,000, which was deposited into the trust
account of Berger Singerman.  On Oct. 31, Berger Singerman applied
the Initial Retainer in payment of its prepetition fees and
expenses.  In addition, on Oct. 31, Berger Singerman received an
additional retainer from the Debtor for $150,000.

The current hourly rates for the attorneys at Berger Singerman
range from $225 to $625.  The current hourly rates of Paul Steven
Singerman and Leslie Gern Cloyd, the shareholders who will be
principally responsible for Berger Singerman's representation of
the Debtor, are $595 and $555, respectively, and the current
hourly rates of the of-counsel and associate attorneys who will
work on this matter range from $225 to $455 per hour.  The current
hourly rates for the legal assistants and paralegals at Berger
Singerman range from $75 to $195.

The Interim Order approving the engagement is without prejudice to
the appointment of a Chapter 11 Trustee.

Paul Steven Singerman, Esq., attests that his firm has no
connection with the Debtor's creditors or other parties in
interest or their attorneys, and does not represent any interest
adverse to the Debtor.

Ruden McClosky, through several lawyers, including Michael R.
Bakst, Esq., represents Soneet R. Kapila in his capacity as
Chapter 7 trustee of the Trafford Distributing Center, Inc.
bankruptcy case pending before the Honorable A. Jay Cristol (Case
No. 11-23492-AJC).  Berger Singerman serves as special litigation
counsel to Mr. Kapila in connection with the Trafford Distributing
Center Chapter 7 case, principally regarding a pending adversary
proceeding (Adv. Proc. No. 11-1999-AJC), which began as a lawsuit
filed in Broward County, Florida Circuit Court (Case No. CACE
11009808), against Ruden attorneys Michael R. Bakst and George S.
Fender, but was subsequently removed to the United States
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Florida.  Ruden is
not a named defendant in the Removed Adversary.

Berger Singerman represents Ruden, and named Defendants Mr. Bakst
and Mr. Fender regarding the Removed Adversary and, in connection
therewith, entered into an engagement letter dated May 31, 2011
with each of Ruden, Mr. Bakst and Mr. Fender.  The engagement
letter provides, in part, that Ruden is responsible for fees and
costs incurred by Berger Singerman.  The Order dated June 8, 2011
approving the retention of Berger Singerman as special counsel to
Mr. Kapila provides, in part, that the Court approved Ruden's
agreement to pay Berger Singerman any unpaid fees or reimbursable
expenses incurred by Berger Singerman in connection with its
representation.

Berger Singerman has received payment of $4,574.20 from Ruden.
Berger Singerman will not accept any further payment of fees or
expenses from Ruden.  Berger Singerman will not seek or accept any
fees or reimbursement of expenses from Mr. Bakst or Mr. Fender
either.  Instead, Berger Singerman will look only to the Trafford
bankruptcy estate to be paid any outstanding fees or costs, or
fees or costs that will be incurred in the future.  For the
avoidance of doubt, Berger Singerman waives the right to seek
payment of outstanding fees or reimbursement of expenses, or fees
or costs that will be incurred in the future, from Ruden, or from
Mr. Bakst or Mr. Fender, in connection with the representations.

Berger Singerman also represents, as special counsel, Ruden
shareholder Michael R. Bakst, in his capacity as Chapter 7 Trustee
of the estate of Ali M. Jaferi, Case No. 08-23903-BKC-PGH, which
is pending in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of Florida, before the Honorable Chief Judge Paul G.
Hyman, Jr.  Further, Berger Singerman represents Michael R. Bakst,
in his capacity as Chapter 7 Trustee of the Jaferi Bankruptcy
Estate, in the state court case captioned CB Loan Purchase
Associates, LLC v. AJ Petroleum II, LLC, Flovest, LLC, BPS R.E.
Holdings, LLC, VMD Financial Services, Inc., Robert Half
International, Inc., David Hayes, Rosalee Rogovin and Unknown
Tenant; Case No. 502008 CA 37372XXXXMB AW, which is pending in the
Circuit Court of the Fifteenth Judicial Circuit, in and for Palm
Beach County, Florida.

In addition, Michael R. Bakst has appeared in cases or proceedings
in which Berger Singerman has appeared, including, but not limited
to, cases in which Berger Singerman represents debtors or
creditors where Michael R. Bakst is the trustee.

Berger Singerman does not deem these representations to constitute
conflicts in the Ruden bankruptcy case.

RUDEN MCCLOSKY: Stay Relief Sought in Legal Malpractice Lawsuit
---------------------------------------------------------------
Ryan Gill is asking the Bankruptcy Court to lift the automatic
stay in the bankruptcy case of Ruden McClosky P.A., so he may
proceed to trial on a pending malpractice action pending in state
court.  Mr. Gill said the lawsuit has no effect on the Debtor's
bankruptcy estate because the malpractice claims asserted by Mr.
Gill against the Debtor are fully covered by insurance.

On Aug. 27, 2009, Mr. Gill filed a Complaint against Patrick Moran
and the Debtor for legal malpractice, negligent misrepresentation,
breach of fiduciary duty and negligent supervision in the Circuit
Court in and for Broward County, Florida in the matter styled Ryan
Gill vs. Patrick Moran, et al, Case No. 09-047531 (07).  The
Claims all have their genesis in Mr. Gill's retention of the State
Court Defendants in June 2003, in connection with a proceeding
relating to the estate of his adoptive father, George Gill, III.

SHASTA LAKE: Plan Intends to Pay BofA in Full from Houseboats Sale
------------------------------------------------------------------
Shasta Lake Resorts, LP, filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Eastern District of California a proposed Plan of
Reorganization dated as of Oct. 28, 2011, and a Disclosure
Statement.

According to the Disclosure Statement, the Plan proposes to pay
the Bank of America, N.A.'s secured claims in full from the
Debtor's future operating revenues and from sale of excess
houseboat inventory.  The Plan also provides payment in full at
the Plan Effective Date to those unclassified claims and classes
of claims which the Bankruptcy Code requires to be paid on the
Effective Date, except to those classes of claims which agree
otherwise, and payment in full over time to those classes of
claims which the Bankruptcy Code requires or allows payment in
full over time.  The Plan provides for two classes of secured
claims, five classes of non-priority unsecured claims; one class
of unclassified priority claims; and one class of equity
interests.

Under the Plan, the Debtor will continue to market and offer to
sell its used houseboat inventory to pay down the Class 2 Claim.
To the extent new houseboats are needed to refresh the Debtor's
stock of houseboats for rent, it will finance that need through
leasing, by which individuals will purchase and place new
houseboat inventory with the Debtor in exchange for a percentage
of rental income, which is a financing mechanism the Debtor has
successfully implemented and has the ability to do so in the
future.

Prepetition, Station Casinos, Inc., on behalf of certain of the

an administrative proceeding before the Department of Taxation

STATION CASINOS: Committee Says Sierra Fees Are Reasonable
----------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors in Station Casinos
Inc.'s cases is still seeking allowance of $194,181 in fees and
$2,004 in costs based on 758.20 hours of work, at a blended
hourly rate of approximately $256 for Sierra Consulting Group
LLC.

The SCI Debtors opposed the Committee's request because Sierra's
employment application was denied by the Court.

In response, the Committee notes that the Court denied Sierra's
Application without prejudice and did not rule that the only way
Sierra could be compensated was if the Committee was authorized
to have standing.

The Committee also notes that the SCI Debtors do not contend that
Sierra was somehow unqualified or not "disinterested," that
Sierra's fees and costs were unreasonable.  The Committee adds
that the Fee Examiner specifically addressed with Sierra the
issue of the effect of the dismissal without prejudice.

After extensive discussion, the Fee Examiner was persuaded that
the transcript left the issue open and suggested that the easiest
thing for Sierra to do was to amend its application by asking
for, in the alternative, employment under Section 327 of the
Bankruptcy Code, which the Committee has done in an amended
employment application.

Because that proposition is factually incorrect, and because the
Fee Examiner agrees with approach taken by the Committee and does
not object to Sierra's requested fees and costs, the Court need
not address the legal issues of whether Sierra should be employed
and have its fees and costs allowed under Section 330 of the
Bankruptcy Code or whether Sierra should be awarded its fees and
costs as a consulting expert, the Committee asserts.

The SCI Debtors asserted that a "professional person cannot
receive compensation from a bankruptcy estate where such
professional's retention was never approved by the bankruptcy
court."

If Sierra is not a "professional person," then the legal argument
the SCI Debtors make is irrelevant, however, if Sierra is a
professional person, the Amended Application expressly asks that
Sierra be employed, and that its fees and costs be allowed in
accordance with Sections 330 and 507 of the Bankruptcy Code.

For these reasons, the Committee asks the Court overrule the SCI
Debtors' objection and allow Sierra's fees and costs.

TRAVELPORT HOLDINGS: To Record $19.7-Mil. Cash Charge in Q4
-----------------------------------------------------------
As previously disclosed in Travelport Limited's periodic reports,
in connection with former third-party national distribution
company arrangements, the Company has been involved in a dispute
with three of the Company's former NDC partners regarding the
payment of one particular disputed fee.  During the fourth quarter
of 2010, the dispute with respect to one such former partner was
concluded completely in the Company's favor by third party
arbitrators.

On Nov. 18, 2011, in the dispute with a different partner,
arbitrators rendered a decision against the Company which will
result in an extraordinary cash charge of approximately $19.7
million in the fourth quarter of 2011.  While the Company
disagrees with the findings of the latest arbitration decision,
such decision is binding and not appealable.  The dispute with
respect to the last remaining partner remains outstanding but is
of a lesser magnitude than the aforementioned adverse ruling.

Although no assurances can be given due to the inherent
uncertainty of arbitration and litigation, the Company believes
such claim is without merit.

As reported by the TCR on Oct. 10, 2011, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services lowered its long-term corporate credit ratings on travel
services provider Travelport Holdings Limited (Travelport
Holdings) and indirect subsidiary Travelport LLC (Travelport) to
'SD' (selective default) from 'CC'.

The downgrades follow the implementation of a capital
restructuring, which was necessary because of the Travelport
group's high leverage, weak liquidity, and the upcoming maturity
of its $693 million (as of end-June 2011) PIK loan in March 2012.
"According to our criteria, we view this restructuring as a
distressed exchange and tantamount to a default (see 'Rating

Credit Portal)," S&P related.

TRIBUNE CO: Has Approval of Calif. Tax Board Settlement
-------------------------------------------------------
Tribune Co. and its affiliates sought and obtained permission from
Judge Carey to enter into a settlement agreement with the
Franchise Tax Board of the State of California.

The Settlement Agreement resolves disputes between certain of the
Debtors and the FTB concerning corporate income taxes of the
Taxpayers that FTB asserts the Taxpayers owe for the 2002-2007
Tax Years.  The Taxpayers are members of a unitary group for the
purposes of filing a State of California combined unitary
franchise (corporate income) tax return.  For the 2002-2007 Tax
Years, Tribune was the key corporation for the Taxpayers' unitary
group, meaning that all relevant notices were issued to Tribune
on behalf of the Taxpayers, and all payments were made by Tribune
on behalf of all Taxpayers.

The FTB began an audit of the Taxpayers for corporate income
taxes on December 27, 2006.  This audit covered the tax years
ended December 29, 2002, December 28, 2003 and December 26, 2004.
Upon concluding the audit, the FTB issued Notices of Proposed
Assessment on March 9, 2009 for the tax years 2002 through 2004
that totaled $4,569,360.  On January 13, 2009, the FTB began an
audit of the Taxpayers for corporate income taxes for the tax
years ended December 26, 2005, December 31, 2006 and
December 30, 2007.  The FTB issued Notices of Proposed Assessment
on October 6, 2009 for the tax years 2005 through 2007 that
totaled $2,476,291.  In total, the NPAs assessed California
corporate taxes against the Taxpayers in the amount of
$7,040,651.  The Taxpayers submitted Protests to the FTB in
response to each of the NPAs.

The FTB filed proofs of claim in the Debtors' bankruptcy cases,
asserting claims based on the its records and pending audits of
the Taxpayers' tax liabilities for tax periods ending
December 31, 1998 and December 31, 2000 through December 31,
2008.  The FTB amended certain of the Initial California Tax
Claims.  The California Tax Claims assert claims totaling
approximately $63,485,740.  The Taxpayers and the other Debtors
have disputed the amount of the corporate income tax liability
asserted in the NP As and in the California Tax Claims.

Pursuant to the 2011 FTB Settlement, the parties agreed that for
the 2002-2007 Tax Years, the Taxpayers owe corporate income taxes
to the FTB in the amount of $3,245,097, plus interest for periods
prior to the Petition Date.  FTB intends to set off the Tax
Liability against certain tax refunds owed by the FTB to the
Taxpayers that are currently being held by the FTB pending
resolution of the Taxpayers' liabilities to the FTB.

The tax refunds currently being held by the FTB are:

(A) refunds for the taxable years ending December 1997 and
   December 1999 in the amounts of $413,854 and $488,006, which
   are being held by the FTB pursuant to a settlement agreement
   between the FTB and the Times Mirror Company, California
   Community News Corporation, and Tribune dated March 19,2010,
   which settled claims for franchise tax refunds for the 1997,
   1998 and 1999 tax years;

(B) an overpayment approved by the FTB for the taxable year
   ending in December 1998 in the amount of $36,226,073,
   excluding applicable interest, resulting from the filing of
   amended returns primarily to report federal audit
   adjustments.  This amount includes a $476,644 refund
   previously agreed to by the FTB and Tribune in the 2010 FTB
   Settlement; and

(C) refunds for the taxable years ending in December 2000 and
   December 2001 in the aggregate amount of $411,521 pursuant to
   a settlement agreement between the FTB and KTLA, Inc.,
   California Community News Corporation and Tribune dated
   February 3, 2009, which settled claims for franchise tax
   refunds for the 2000 and 2001 tax years.

Each of the 2009 FTB Settlement and the 2010 FTB Settlement
provided that the FTB would be entitled to retain the refunds as
tax deposits pending the outcome of the audits for the 2002-2007
Tax Years so that the FTB could exercise any setoff rights if
necessary.  The Taxpayers and the FTB have agreed that the FTB
will refund the remaining Overpayments, plus applicable interest,
after the FTB offsets the Tax Liability and amends the California
Tax Claims.  The FTB will amend the California Tax Claims to take
into account the 2011 FTB Settlement, which will reduce the
California Tax Claims by over $57 million.

A full-text copy of the 2011 FTB Settlement is available for free
at http://bankrupt.com/misc/Tribune_2011FTBSettlement.pdf

The Court further authorized the Debtors to offset the Tax
Liability against the Overpayments held by the FTB in accordance
with 2011 FTB Settlement.

Norman L. Pernick, Esq., at Cole, Schotz, Meisel, Forman &
Leonard, P.A, in Wilmington, Delaware, averred that absent the
resolution afforded by the 2011 FTB Settlement, the FTB and the
Taxpayers either would be forced to continue to litigate the
merits of the California Tax Claims for the 2002-2007 Tax Years
or the Taxpayers would be forced to accept the tax liability
asserted in the NPAs.  Litigating the claims, he argued, would be
costly, time-consuming, and disruptive to the Debtors, while
providing an uncertain outcome that is unlikely to reduce further
by a material amount the Taxpayers' tax liability for the 2002-
2007 Tax Years.  In contrast, resolving the California Tax Claims
for the 2002-2007 Tax Years is a prerequisite to obtaining a
refund of over $34 million from the FTB because the FTB has held
the Overpayments as a tax deposit pending the resolution of the
tax liability for the 2002-2007 Tax Years, he insisted.

The Court entered the order after a certification of no objection
was filed.

TXU CORP: Bank Debt Trades at 34% Off in Secondary Market
---------------------------------------------------------
Participations in a syndicated loan under which TXU Corp., now
known as Energy Future Holdings Corp., is a borrower traded in the
secondary market at 66.15 cents-on-the-dollar during the week
ended Friday, Nov. 25, 2011, a drop of 2.08 percentage points from
the previous week according to data compiled by Loan Pricing Corp.
and reported in The Wall Street Journal.  The Company pays 450
basis points above LIBOR to borrow under the facility.  The bank
loan matures on Oct. 10, 2017, and carries Moody's 'B2' rating and
Standard & Poor's 'CCC' rating.  The loan is one of the biggest
gainers and losers among 114 widely quoted syndicated loans with
five or more bids in secondary trading for the week ended Friday.

                        About Energy Future

Energy Future Holdings Corp., formerly known as TXU Corp., is a
privately held diversified energy holding company with a portfolio
of competitive and regulated energy businesses in Texas.  Oncor,
an 80%-owned entity within the EFH group, is the largest regulated
transmission and distribution utility in Texas.  The Company
delivers electricity to roughly three million delivery points in
and around Dallas-Fort Worth.  EFH Corp. was created in October
2007 in a $45 billion leverage buyout of Texas power company TXU
in a deal led by private-equity companies Kohlberg Kravis Roberts
& Co. and TPG Inc.

Energy Future Holdings Corp. filed with the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission its quarterly reporton Form 10-Q, reporting a
net loss of $710 million on $2.32 billion of operating revenues
for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2011, compared with a net
loss of $2.90 billion on $2.60 billion of operating revenue for
the same period during the prior year.

The Company also reported a net loss of $1.77 billion on $5.67
billion of operating revenue for the nine months ended Sept. 30,
2011, compared with a net loss of $2.97 million on $6.59 billion
of operating revenue for the same period a year ago.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2011, showed $44.02
billion in total assets, $51.68 billion in total liabilities and a
$7.66 billion total deficit.

The Company's consolidated balance sheets at Dec. 31, 2010, showed
$46.388 billion in total assets, $52.299 billion in total
liabilities, and a stockholders' deficit of $5.911 billion.

                           *     *     *

In April 2011, Moody's Investors Service affirmed the 'Caa2'
Corporate Family Rating, 'Caa3' Probability of Default Rating and
SGL-4 Speculative Grade Liquidity Ratings of EFH.  Outlook is
stable.  EFH's Caa2 CFR and Caa3 PDR reflect a financially
distressed company with limited financial flexibility; its capital
structure appears to be untenable, calling into question the
sustainability of the business model; and there is no expectation
for any meaningful debt reduction over the next few years, beyond
scheduled amortizations.

At the end of February 2011, Fitch Ratings it does not expect to
take any immediate rating action on EFH's Texas Competitive
Electric Holdings Company LLC or their affiliates based on recent
default allegations from lender Aurelius.  EFH carries a 'CCC'
corporate rating, with negative outlook, from Fitch.


UNITED CONTINENTAL: Gives 4Q/Full Year 2011 Projections
-------------------------------------------------------
United Continental Holdings, Inc., filed with the U.S. Securities
and Exchange Commission on October 27, 2011, an investor update
providing forward-looking information for the fourth quarter and
full year 2011.

United Continental Vice President and Controller Chris Kenny
related that all year-over-year comparisons in the Oct. 27
Investor Update are based on the pro-forma combined company
financial statements previously published in United Continental's
investor updates in November 2010, December 2010, April 2011,
June 2011, July 2011 and September 2011.

                         Capacity

The Company estimates its fourth quarter 2011 combined
consolidated domestic available seat miles to decrease between
4.6% and 5.6% and combined consolidated international ASMs to be
down 0.8% to up 0.2% for a combined consolidated system ASMs
decrease between 2.6% and 3.6% as compared to the same period in

combined consolidated domestic ASMs down 2.2% to 2.5% and
combined international ASMs up 2.2% to 2.4% versus 2010.

                Non-Fuel Expense Guidance

The Company expects fourth quarter consolidated cost per ASM
(CASM), excluding fuel, profit sharing, certain accounting
charges and merger-related expenses to be up 1.5% to 2.5%,
modestly higher than prior fourth quarter cost guidance due to
higher year-end liability true-ups driven by historically low
treasury rates.  For the full year, the Company expects CASM,
excluding fuel, profit sharing, certain accounting charges and
merger-related expenses to be up 2.0% to 2.3%.

                        Fuel Expense

The Company estimates its consolidated fuel price, including the
impact of settled cash hedges, to be $3.15 per gallon for the
fourth quarter and $3.05 per gallon for the full year based on
the forward curve as of Oct. 20, 2011.

                Non-Operating Income/(Expense)

The Company estimates fourth quarter non-operating expense to be
between $205 million and $225 million.  For the full year, the
Company estimates non-operating expense to be between $995
million and $1,015 million.  Non-operating income/(expense)
includes interest expense, capitalized interest, interest income
and other non-operating income/(expense).

        Profit Sharing and Stock Based Compensation

The Company pays 15% of total GAAP pre-tax profits, excluding
special items and stock compensation program expense, as profit
sharing to employees when pre-tax profit, excluding special
items, profit sharing expense and stock compensation program
expense, exceeds $10 million.  Profit sharing expense is accrued
on a year-to-date basis, and $242 million has been accrued
through the third quarter of 2011.  Stock compensation expense
for the purposes of the profit sharing calculation is estimated
to be $10 million in the fourth quarter and $37 million for the
full year 2011.

             Capital Expenditures and Scheduled Debt
                 and Capital Lease Payments

In the fourth quarter, the Company expects approximately $300
million of gross and net capital expenditures excluding purchase
deposits of $12 million, Mr. Kenny stated.  For the full year,
excluding approximately $134 million of purchase deposits, the
Company expects approximately $940 million of gross capital
expenditures and $810 million net capital expenditures, he added.

Scheduled debt and capital lease payments for the fourth quarter
are estimated to be $0.4 billion, according to Mr. Kenny.  For
the full year, scheduled debt and capital leases are estimated to
be $2.2 billion.  Including all debt pre-payments year-to-date,
the Company expects debt and capital lease payments of $2.5
billion in 2011, he said.

              Pension Expense and Contributions

The Company estimates that its non-cash pension expense for the
combined company will be approximately $100 million for 2011.
This amount excludes non-cash settlement charges related to lump-
sum distributions, Mr. Kenny explained.  The Company made $31
million of cash contributions to its tax-qualified defined
benefit pension plans in September and $31 million of cash
contributions in October for a total of $166 million in year-to-
date contributions, he disclosed.  He noted that the Company has
exceeded its minimum tax-qualified pension funding requirement
for calendar year 2011 and does not expect additional funding in
2011.

                           Taxes

The Company currently expects to record minimal cash taxes in
2011.

                Advance Booked Seat Factor
        (Percentage of Available Seats that are Sold)

Compared to the same period last year, for the next six weeks,
mainline domestic advance booked seat factor is up 3.2 points,
mainline international advance booked seat factor is down 0.5
points, mainline Atlantic advance booked seat factor is down 0.6
points, mainline Pacific advance booked seat factor is down 4.4
points and mainline Latin America advance booked seat factor is
up 2.9 points.  Regional advance booked seat factor is up 1.4
points.

                   Fuel Price Sensitivity

The Company's estimated settled hedge impacts at various crude
oil prices, based on the hedge portfolio as of October 21, 2011:

UAL Corp and its affiliates including United Airlines filed for
Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. N.D. Ill. Case No. 02-8191) on Dec.
9, 2002 .  James H.M. Sprayregen, Esq., Marc Kieselstein, Esq.,
David R. Seligman, Esq., and Steven R. Kotarba, Esq., at Kirkland
& Ellis, represented the Debtors in their restructuring
efforts.  Fruman Jacobson, Esq., at Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal
LLP represented the Official Committee of Unsecured
Creditors.  Judge Eugene R. Wedoff confirmed a reorganization plan
for United on Jan. 20, 2006.  The Company emerged from bankruptcy
on Feb. 1, 2006.

United Continental carries 'B2' corporate family and probability

credit ratings, with stable outlook, from Standard & Poor's, and
'B' issuer default rating from Fitch.

Fitch upgraded United Continental's IDR from 'B-' to 'B' in
September 2011, citing, "The upgrade follows a year of significant
debt reduction and strong free cash flow (FCF) generation since
the closing of the United-Continental merger on Oct. 1, 2010.  In
the face of heavy fuel cost pressure during the first half of
2011, UAL has consistently reported industry-leading revenue per
available seat mile (RASM) growth while funding heavy debt
maturities out of internally generated cash flow.


UNITED CONTINENTAL: Expects 2012 Consolidated Capacity To Be Flat
-----------------------------------------------------------------
United Continental Holdings, Inc. expects the merged airline's
2012 consolidated capacity to be flat, according to United
Continental Inc. Senior Vice President for Finance and Treasurer
Gerald Laderman at the Deutsche Bank 2011 Leveraged Finance
Conference on October 12, 2011.

In response, United is thus reducing domestic capacity while
growing international capacity, according to Mr. Laderman.
Notwithstanding this projection, he noted that United is
generating industry leading results in terms of revenue, pre-tax
margin and liquidity.  United is committed to strengthening its
balance sheet, according to the office.  Since closing the merger
on October 1, 2010, United made $2.4 billion of debt and capital
lease payments.  It also prepaid more than $480 million of debt.
United also recorded $1.8 billion of unencumbered assets, half of
which are Section 1110 aircraft.  United expects to make $1.5
billion of scheduled debt payments in 2012.

United is focused on generating returns that exceed its cost of
capital over the business cycle, according to Mr. Laderman.  He
related that flexible fleet permits adjustments for fuel prices.
He disclosed that United expects delivery of five B787 Dreamliner
aircraft in 2012.  The Company also plans to install EconomyPlus
on Continental aircraft in 2012 and overall improvement of its
aircraft, he added.

As to its labor segments, United continues to be in joint
negotiations with the pilots group, Mr. Laderman said.  United
has upcoming joint negotiations with each of the flight
attendants, mechanics and ramp agents, he noted.  Specifically,
United is in agreement with flights attendants at Continental and
in negotiations with flight attendants at United Airlines, he
disclosed.  As to passenger service agents, the International
Association of Machinists' request to represent passenger service
agents at United and Continental remains pending.  Passenger
service agents at Continental also did not require bargaining
while passenger service agents are in negotiations with United,
he said.

Mr. Laderman said merger is progressing and on track to achieve
25% of synergies in 2011.  In fact, United has captured more than
$130 million in synergies year-to-date.  United is also on track
to achieve 25% of $1 billion to $1.2 billion run rate synergies
in 2011, he said.  United also expects to obtain a single
operating certificate from the Federal Aviation Administration by
end of 2011.  He believes that the single operating certificate
will enable United to market and sell all flights with single
code, and to jointly operate once joint collective bargaining
agreements are in place.  United further expects to have a
consolidated passenger service system by first quarter of 2012.

United Continental Chief Executive Officer Jeffery Smisek said
the Company is not seeing signs of an imminent recession in its
travel bookings even as the U.S. and other major economies
grapple with a troubling economic outlook, Reuters reported.

"We are not seeing in it our bookings.  We're not seeing it in
our business travel at this point.  But certainly it could
happen," Mr. Smisek was quoted at an event hosted by the
Executives' Club of Chicago as saying by Reuters.

In fact, United Continental is prepared to be nimble and
responsive to weaker demand, the CEO said, the report relayed.
"If we have demand drop off because of economic developments, we
will take capacity out," Mr. Smisek added.

UNITED CONTINENTAL: Amends 2010 Annual Report
---------------------------------------------
United Continental Holdings, Inc. filed with the U.S. Securities
and Exchange Commission on October 28, 2011, an amendment to the
annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010,
as filed on February 22.

The amendment is being filed for the sole purpose of revising
Item 9A. Controls and Procedures to include management's report
on internal control over financial reporting for United
Continental in response to a comment received from the SEC.  This
report was inadvertently omitted from the original filing, says
United Continental.

Specifically, during the three months ended December 31, 2010,
there was no change in United Continental's, United Air Lines,
Inc., or Continental Airlines, Inc.'s internal control over
financial reporting during their most recent fiscal quarter that
materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially
affect, their internal control over financial reporting.

Moreover, on October 1, 2010, UAL Corp. and Continental completed
the Merger transaction.  They are currently integrating policies,
processes, people, technology and operations for the combined
company.  Management will continue to evaluate United
Continental's internal control over financial reporting as it
executes Merger integration activities.

United Continental clarifies that this amendment does not attempt
to modify or update the disclosures contained in any other items
set forth in the original filing.  United Continental also
included as exhibits to the Amendment currently-dated
certifications from the Chief Executive Officer and Chief
Financial Officer of each of the Company, United and Continental.

UNITED CONTINENTAL: UAL Pilots Fail to Delay Operating Protocol
---------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Sterling Johnson Jr. of the U.S. District Court for the
Eastern District of New York rejected the request of United Air
Lines, Inc.'s pilots to postpone the revised operating procedures
being put in place after the merger that created United
Continental Holdings, Inc., Mary Jane Credeur and Thom Weidlich
of Bloomberg News reported.

The federal judge opined that the pilots failed to show that the
Federal Aviation Administration-authorized training would put the
public at risk, warranting a temporary restraining order,
according to the report.

The Air Lines Pilots Association at United said in a
September 26, 2011 complaint called the training levels and the
timeline to effectuate new steps for tasks like taxiing and
landing "inadequate," Bloomberg relayed.  United Continental
commented that the pilots filed the lawsuit to gain leverage in
contract talks, the report noted.

"In light of the FAA's regulatory authority and ongoing oversight
of all phases of the United and Continental merger, the court has
no choice but to deem the increased risk to safety ALPA alleges
as being too 'remote and speculative' to lift the union's TRO
application off the ground," Judge Johnson wrote in a Sept. 29
decision, Bloomberg quoted.

In recent developments, Capt. Jay Heppner was elected chairman of
the United Master Executive Council of the ALPA, according to an
October 18, 2011 public statement.  "This election is about our
new contract," Mr. Heppner acknowledged.  "There are assuredly
other issues that need to be resolved in parallel, but none so
critical as our Joint Collective Bargaining Agreement," Mr.
Heppner said.  Mr. Heppner and the newly elected officers of the
United MEC-ALPA will begin their two-year terms on January 1,
2012.

VITRO SAB: Unit Wins Protection as Judge Cites Possible Fraud
-------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that a Vitro SAB subsidiary was given protection from
creditors in the U.S. as the result of a three-page opinion on
Nov. 23 by U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Harlin Hale in Dallas.

Mr. Rochelle relates that Vitro Packaging de Mexico SA de CV filed
under Chapter 15 in June, asking the U.S. court eventually to
enforce whatever reorganization a court in Mexico approves.
Holders of some of Vitro's $1.2 billion in defaulted bonds opposed
Chapter 15 protection.

Judge Hale, the report notes, noted in his opinion how substantial
assets were transferred to Vitro Packaging in 2009.  Although a
Vitro witness said the transfer was made for tax reasons, Hale
said "his story is not supported by a shred of other evidence."

The report relates that according to Judge Hale, the creditors
said there were "plenty of badges of fraud," including transfers
to affiliates made in secrecy after default on the bonds.

Judge Hale, according to the report, said the decision to provide
creditor protection in the U.S. isn't affected by whether Vitro
Packaging received fraudulently transferred assets because it was
not "manifestly contrary to the public policy of the U.S." Hale
said an "appropriate court" will later decide if there was fraud.

Whether Vitro Packaging is entitled to Chapter 15 protection,
according to Judge Hale, turns on the fact that the company had
its assets and management in Mexico, Bloomberg relates.

Judge Hale's decision that Mexico is home to the "foreign main
proceeding" automatically stops creditor actions in the U.S.
Chapter 15 protection also gives Hale the ability to enforce
whatever decision the Mexican court reaches in the bankruptcy
abroad.

The new Chapter 15 case is Vitro Packaging de Mexico SA de
CV, 11-34224, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Northern District Texas
(Dallas).

                         About Vitro SAB

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

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

Vitro defaulted on its debt in 2009, and sought to restructure
around US$1.5 billion in debt, including US$1.2 billion in notes.
Vitro launched an offer to buy back or swap US$1.2 billion in debt
from bondholders.  The tender offer would be consummated with a
bankruptcy filing in Mexico and Chapter 15 filing in the United
States.  Vitro said noteholders would recover as much as 73% by
exchanging existing debt for cash, new debt or convertible bonds.

           Concurso Mercantil & Chapter 15 Proceedings

Vitro SAB on Dec. 13, 2010, filed its voluntary petition for a
pre-packaged Concurso Plan in the Federal District Court for
Civil and Labor Matters for the State of Nuevo Leon, commencing
its voluntary concurso mercantil proceedings -- the Mexican
equivalent of a prepackaged Chapter 11 reorganization.  Vitro SAB
also commenced parallel proceedings under Chapter 15 of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Code (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 10-16619) in Manhattan
on Dec. 13, 2010, to seek U.S. recognition and deference to its
bankruptcy proceedings in Mexico.

Early in January 2011, the Mexican Court dismissed the Concurso
Mercantil proceedings.  The judge said Vitro couldn't push through
a plan to buy back or swap US$1.2 billion in debt from bondholders
based on the vote of US$1.9 billion of intercompany debt when
third-party creditors were opposed.  Vitro as a result dismissed
the first Chapter 15 petition following the ruling by the Mexican
court.

On April 12, 2011, an appellate court in Mexico reinstated the
reorganization.  Accordingly, Vitro SAB on April 14 re-filed a
petition for recognition of its Mexican reorganization in U.S.
Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 11-
11754).

The Vitro parent told the Mexico stock exchange that it received
sufficient acceptances of its reorganization pending in a court in
Monterrey.  The approval vote was evidently obtained using claims
of affiliates.  The bondholders are opposing the Mexican
reorganization plan because shareholders could retain ownership
while bondholders aren't being paid in full.  Bondholders
previously cited an "independent analyst" who estimated the
Mexican plan was worth 49% to 54% of creditors'
claims.

In the present Chapter 15 case, the Debtor seeks to block any
creditor suits in the U.S. pending the reorganization in Mexico.

                     Chapter 11 Proceedings

A group of noteholders opposed the exchange -- namely Knighthead
Master Fund, L.P., Lord Abbett Bond-Debenture Fund, Inc.,
Davidson Kempner Distressed Opportunities Fund LP, and Brookville
Horizons Fund, L.P.  Together, they held US$75 million, or
approximately 6% of the outstanding bond debt.  The Noteholder
group commenced involuntary bankruptcy cases under Chapter 11 of
the U.S. Bankruptcy Code against Vitro Asset Corp. (Bankr. N.D.
Tex. Case No. 10-47470) and 15 other affiliates on Nov. 17, 2010.

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

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

The U.S. affiliates subject to the involuntary petitions are Vitro
Chemicals, Fibers & Mining, LLC (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No.10-
47472); Vitro America, LLC (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 10-47473);
Troper Services, Inc. (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 10-47474); Super
Sky Products, Inc. (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 10-47475); Super Sky

Holdings, LLC (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 0-47477); Amsilco
Holdings, Inc. (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 10-47478); B.B.O.
Holdings, Inc. (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 10-47479); Binswanger
Glass Company (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 10-47480); Crisa
Corporation (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 10-47481); VVP Finance
Corporation (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 10-47482); VVP Auto Glass,
Inc. (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 10-47483); V-MX Holdings, LLC
(Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 10-47484); and Vitro Packaging, LLC
(Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 10-47485).

A bankruptcy judge in Fort Worth, Texas, denied involuntary
Chapter 11 petitions filed against four U.S. subsidiaries.  On
April 6, 2011, Vitro SAB agreed to put Vitro units -- Vitro
America LLC and three other U.S. subsidiaries -- that were subject
to the involuntary petitions into voluntary Chapter 11. The Texas
Court on April 21 denied involuntary petitions against the eight
U.S. subsidiaries that didn't consent to being in Chapter 11.

Kurtzman Carson Consultants is the claims and notice agent to
Vitro America, et al.  Alvarez & Marsal North America LLC, is the
Debtors' operations and financial advisor.

The official committee of unsecured creditors appointed in the
Chapter 11 cases of Vitro America, et al., has selected Sarah
Link Schultz, Esq., at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP, in
Dallas, Texas, and Michael S. Stamer, Esq., Abid Qureshi, Esq.,
and Alexis Freeman, Esq., at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP,
in New York, as counsel.  Blackstone Advisory Partners L.P. serves

WATERSONG APARTMENT: Plan Outline Hearing Rescheduled to Jan. 5
---------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of California
will convene a hearing on Jan. 5, 2012, at 11:00 a.m., to consider
adequacy of the Disclosure Statement explaining Watersong
Apartment , L.P.'s Original Plan of Reorganization.

The Court terminated the hearing dated Nov. 3, 2011.

As reported in Troubled Company Reporter on July 26, 2011, the
Plan is an "earn-out" Plan.  The Plan Proponent seeks to
accomplish payments under the Plan by making periodic payments or
lump sum payments, depending on the class, to the holders of
allowed claims from 1) funds available on the Effective Date; 2)
post Plan confirmation earnings of the Plan Proponents.  The
Effective Date of the proposed Plan is 11 days after the entry of
an order by the Bankruptcy Court confirming the Plan.

One West Bank FSB's Class 2 secured claim of $10,400,000
principal, plus arrearges will be paid in full through the sales
of the Watersong Condominiums, after upgrades.

Class 3 unsecured claims are composed of the unsecured portion of
the One West Claim of approximately $2,300,000 under Class 3a, and
the allowed general unsecured claims of approximately $5,052,000
under Class 3b.

Upon the full payment of the One West Allowed Secured Claim, then
the Net Cash Flow payments and the applicable Release Payments
will be paid to One West on account of the One West Guaranteed
Unsecured Claim, until said claim is paid in full.  All payments
of the Net Cash Flow Payment will be applied to the principal
amount of the One West Guaranteed Unsecured Claim.

Members of Class 3b will receive a total of 50% of their allowed
claims.  A payment of $50,000 will be made to Class 3b from the
New Value Contribution, within 30 days of the Effective Date.
This payment will be paid to the holders of allowed Class 3b
Claims on a pro rata basis.  A payment from the sale of the
Watersong Condominiums, after full payment is made to Class 3a,
from the sale of each unit, until the full amount due to this
class is paid.

All Existing Partnership Interests in Class 4 will be canceled.
The members of Class 4 will contribute a total of $100,000 in new
value to the Debtors-in-Possession (the "New Value Contribution"),
which will be used by the Debtor-in-Possession to carry out the
provisions of the Plan.  Those members of Class 4 who contribute
to the New Value Contribution will receive, as of the Effective
Date, new partnership interests in the Reorganized Debtor in an
amount equal to the percentage that their contribution represent
to the entire New Value Contribution.

WINDRUSH SCHOOL: Mediation Session Resumes Today
------------------------------------------------
Charles Buress at BeniciaPatch reports that a mediation session
between Windrush School and its creditors is set for Nov. 29,
2011, at 9:30 a.m., Room 220, 1300 Clay Street in Oakland,
California.

According to the report, last week, a mediation with U.S.
Bankruptcy Judge William Lafferty failed to break the impasse
between the two parties.

Representatives of the two sides met last week but did not achieve
a resolution, according to the school's board.  The board outlined
three "scenarios" for what could happen next:

   1. The school and Wells Fargo agree to the proposed settlement,
      whose broad outlines included dismissing the bankrupty case,
      turning the school over to the creditors and allowing the
      school to continue operating for at least the rest of this
      school year.

   2. If a settlement is not reached by Tuesday's hearing, the
      current U.S. Bankruptcy Court proceedings would continue,
      keeping the school's hopes alive of remaining under
      bankruptcy shelter.  The school is under interim temporary
      bankruptcy protection pending a court ruling and must
      convince the court that it has a viable plan for sustainable
      future operations.

   3. If the first or second scenario are not attainable, then the
      school would be obliged to shut down, the board said.  The
      board statement did not give an exact date, except to say
      the school would "need to ask the Court to approve a wind-
      down cash collateral through January 30, 2012."

The report says, if the school can realize the first or second
scenario -- and receive the funds pledged in the emergency fund-
raising drive and continued tuition payments -- the school would
have the opportunity to pursue a revised academic plan called
"Windrush 2.0," the board said.

                       About Windrush School

Based in El Cerrito, California, Windrush School is a private K-8
school.  The Company filed for Chapter 11 protection on Sept. 30,
2011 (Bankr. D. N.D. Calif. Case No. 11-70440).  Judge William J.
Lafferty presides over the case.  Merle C. Meyers, Esq., at Meyers
Law Group PC, represents the Debtor.  The Debtor estimated assets
and debts of between $10 million and $50 million.

Attorneys for secured lender Wells Fargo Bank N.A. are Mike C.
Buckley, Esq., James Neudecker, Esq., and Renee C. Feldman, Esq.,
at Reed Smith LLP.  Wells Fargo is the Indenture Trustee on
$13 million of bonds issued by the California Statewide
Communities Development Authority to Windrush School.


W.R. GRACE: Wins Nod to Hike OCP Expenses Cap to $1.6-Mil.
----------------------------------------------------------
W.R. Grace & Co. and its affiliates sought and obtained amended
orders granting them authority to employ ordinary course
professionals to (i) increase the total expenditure cap to
$1,600,000, and (ii) continue to permit certain OCPs to exceed the
$50,000 monthly OCP cap from time to time as appropriate and seek
compensation for fees and expenses in excess thereof.

Laura Davis Jones, Esq., at Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP, in
Wilmington, Delaware, relates that due to the length of the
Chapter 11 cases, the Total Expenditure Cap was increased a few
times and to $1,200,000 by the Court's September 24, 2007 Order.
Contemplating that further increases in the Total Expenditure Cap
may become necessary, each of the orders provided that they "shall
be without prejudice to the Debtors' rights to seek additional
increases to the amounts they are authorized to pay Ordinary
Course Professionals in the future . . ."

Ms. Jones tells the Court that presently, it is unclear when the
appeals from the order confirming the Debtors' Plan of
Reorganization will be resolved, whether further appeals will be
taken and when the effective date under the Plan will occur,
thereby allowing the Debtors to exit Chapter 11.  In the meantime,
due to the further passage of time, several more of the Debtors'
OCPs have total expenditures that may exceed the Total Expenditure
Cap in the near future, she says.

Hence, the Debtors seek an increase in the Total Expenditure Cap
and also seek permission for OCPs, when appropriate, to ask for
fees and expenses that exceed the $50,000 Monthly Cap.

The uninterrupted continuing services of the OCPs are vital to the
Debtors' continued operations, Ms. Jones contends.  She adds that
the operations of the Debtors' businesses and these Chapter 11
Cases would be hindered if the OCPs were either unable to be paid
for their services, or required to submit to the Court formal
applications for employment as professionals and subsequent
monthly and quarterly fee applications for all fees and expenses
billed.

In another request, the Debtors ask the Clerk of the Court to
change the filing date of the Motion to Amend to October 18, 2011.
On October 17, 2011, the electronic court filing system for the
Court was down and would not accept an electronic filing of the
Motion to Amend, and consequently, the motion was manually filed
at the Court on that day, Ms. Jones explains.

W.R. GRACE: Garlock Appeals Denial to Access Asbestos Docs
----------------------------------------------------------
In Garlock Sealing Technologies LLC's appeal from the order
denying its motion for access, motion to intervene and motion to
reopen, Garlock wants the U.S. District Court for the District of
Delaware to determine whether the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Delaware erred:

   (1) in denying Garlock access to exhibits to statements under
       Rule 2019 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure
       filed in the bankruptcy cases of W.R. Grace & Co. and its
       debtor affiliates by law firms representing asbestos
       personal injury claimants, when those Rule 2019 Exhibits
       are merely held by the Clerk of Court and have never been
       formally sealed from public access.  The Rule 2019
       Exhibits contain, among other things, the names of
       asbestos personal injury creditors represented by the law
       firms in the twelve bankruptcy cases;

   (2) in holding that Garlock was required to intervene in the
       bankruptcy cases to obtain access to the Rule 2019
       Exhibits;

   (3) in finding that Garlock does not have standing, either as
       a member of the public or as a party-in-interest, to
       intervene in the Grace bankruptcy cases to obtain access
       to these judicial records;

   (4) by finding that Garlock would need to reopen the closed
       bankruptcy cases in order to obtain judicial records that
       are admittedly retained in the Bankruptcy Court's files;
       and

   (5) by refusing to reopen the closed bankruptcy cases for the
       limited purpose of permitting Garlock access to these
       judicial records.

Garlock also filed with the Bankruptcy Court lists of items to be
included in the record on appeal, which include orders, opinions,
judgments and decrees entered by Judge Judith K. Fitzgerald, and
other relevant court documents.  A copy of Garlock's filing is
available for free at:

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

As reported in the Oct. 12, 2011 edition of the TCR, Bankruptcy
Judge Judith K. Fitzgerald in a sweeping decision denied all three
motions by Garlock Sealing Technologies, Inc., to access
statements filed under Fed.R.Bankr.P. 2019 in 12 asbestos-related
bankruptcy cases and motions to intervene in each of those cases.
Judge Fitzgerald also denied Garlock's request to reopen those
cases that are closed.  The judge said Garlock is not entitled to
intervene in those cases or access the 2019 statements at this
time.  It is also not appropriate to reopen the cases that are
closed.

WYSTERIA LLC: Section 341(a) Meeting Scheduled for Dec. 27
----------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Trustee for Region 17 will convene a meeting of creditors
of Wysteria, LLC, on Dec. 27, 2011, at 9:00 a.m. at San Francisco
U.S. Trustee Office.  Proofs of claim are due by March 26, 2012.

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

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

Wysteria, LLC, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. N.D. Calif.
Case No. 11-34171) on Nov. 18, 2011.  The Company estimated assets
of $10 million to $50 million and estimated debts of $10 million
to $50 million.  The petition was signed by Stephen H. Kendrick,
as manager.  Judge Dennis Montali presides the case.

The Debtor is represented by:

* Properly Drafted Trust Assets Exempt in Bankruptcy
----------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that when a husband and wife jointly contributed $360,000
to a spendthrift trust originally created by the wife, the
husband's creditors couldn't reach the funds when the husband
filed bankruptcy, U.S. District Judge Paul A. Magnuson from
Orlando, Florida, ruled on Nov. 15 in reversing the bankruptcy
court.

According to the report, the wife, as settlor of the trust,
retained sole authority to terminate the trust or withdraw assets.
Because the husband didn't have those rights, the trust couldn't
be considered a self-settled trust even though the husband could
have been a beneficiary of the trust.

The report relates that since the husband was not a settlor of the
trust, Magnuson ruled that the assets in the trust, including the
$360,000 the husband contributed in part, were exempt assets in
the husband's bankruptcy.

Judge Magnuson, the report relates, cited comments to the uniform
law on trusts saying that a family member donating assets to a
trust revocable by another family member shouldn't be considered
as one of the trust's settlors.

The case is Quaid v. Baybrook Home of Polk County LLC (In re
Quaid), 11-0280, U.S. District Court, Middle District Florida
(Orlando).


* Notice Required Before Appointing Trustee Sua Sponte
------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that U.S. District Judge Nathaniel M. Gorton from Boston
ruled on Nov. 17 it was improper for the bankruptcy judge to
appoint a Chapter 11 trustee "with virtually no notice to the
debtors,"

The report relates that the bankruptcy judge had summoned the
parties to court for a status conference.  When the company's
lawyer wasn't sure about the need for court authorization to use
cash collateral, the judge appointed a trustee after being told by
the U.S. Trustee that some filings in the case were late.

Judge Gorton, according to the report, said it was permissible for
a bankruptcy judge on his own to initiate a hearing for
appointment of a Chapter 11 trustee.  Still, there must be "notice
and a hearing," as the rule requires.  Judge Gorton said that
notice was "insufficient in the circumstances."  If the bankruptcy
judge decides to appoint a trustee after conducting another
hearing, Gorton directed the judge to "state the reasons for such
appointment in detail."

The case is Allen v. King, 11-30219, U.S. Bankruptcy Court,
District of Massachusetts (Boston).

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.
