155 EAST: Canpartners Offers "Superior" Competing Plan
------------------------------------------------------
Canpartners Realty Holding Company IV LLC asks the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the District of Nevada to terminate East Tropicana, LLC,
and 155 East Tropicana Finance Corp.'s exclusive periods to file a
plan and to solicit acceptances thereof, so that Canpartners may
file its own proposed plan of reorganization.

Canpartners tells the Court that its plan will be far superior to
any "new value" plan put forth by the Debtors.  Specifically, the
Canpartners Plan will provide for payment in full on the
effective date of all of the Debtors' unsubordinated unsecured
creditors.  The Canpartners Plan will also provide for the sale of
the Debtors' assets through a foreclosure or Section 363 sale, in
either case providing for a full right of Canpartners and U.S.
Bank, as indenture trustee for the holders of Debtors' senior
secured notes, to credit bid.

Canpartners, the holder of approximately 98.1% of the Debtors'
senior secured notes, puts forth the following reasons in support
of its motion:

    * First, despite their fiduciary obligations to maximize
recoveries for creditors, the Debtors appear to have no interest
in considering a sale, despite that a sale of the property is the
best (and only) way to maximize value.

    * Second, the Canpartners Plan would be significantly more
beneficial to creditors than any plan the Debtors could propose.
The Canpartners Plan would pay all of the Unsubordinated Creditors
in cash on the effective date.  No plan of Debtors could achieve
such a favorable result for creditors, because Debtors could not
provide the Unsubordinated Creditors with more favorable
treatment than the treatment afforded to the Noteholders'
deficiency claim.  Canpartners, however, can achieve that result
under the Canpartners Plan, because the Noteholders can consent to
(but cannot be forced to accept) less favorable treatment than
that provided for the Unsubordinated Creditors.

    * Third, cause exists for terminating exclusivity because the
Canpartners Plan would move these cases to conclusion far more
quickly than the plan Debtors intend to propose.  Judicial
resources would be saved, and alternatives could be given to all
creditors, if Canpartners is allowed to file a competing plan.
The Debtors recently filed a motion to extend the Exclusive
Periods for an aggregate of 150 days (60 more days to file its
plan and an additional 90 days to April 28, 2012, to confirm
Debtors' plan).

    * Fourth, while Canpartners could confirm its plan quickly and
ensure that all Unsubordinated Creditors are paid in full, the
Debtors' plan will not be confirmable over Canpartners'
objection.

    * Fifth and finally, the Debtors simply don't need any more
time.  The Debtors began their restructuring efforts more than
three years ago (pre-petition).  They have already spent more than
$3 million on those restructuring efforts.  These efforts have
been abject failures and have eroded value to creditors.  Debtors
neither need nor deserve additional time to continue down this
same path.

                     About 155 East Tropicana

155 East Tropicana LLC owns the world's first Hooters Casino
Hotel, a 696-room and 4-suite hotel located one block from the Las
Vegas Strip and across Tropicana Blvd. from MGM Grand.

155 East Tropicana, along with an affiliate, sought Chapter 11
protection (Bankr. D. Nev. Case No. 11-22216) on Aug. 1, 2011.
155 East sought bankruptcy protection to stop a scheduled
foreclosure of the second-lien debt.  The two secured credit
facilities were accelerated early this year.

Canpartners Realty Holding Co. IV LLC acquired 98.4% of the
$130 million in 8.75% second-lien senior secured notes.  An
additional $32.2 million of interest is owing on the second-lien
debt, with US Bank NA as the indenture trustee.  Holders of the
$14.5 million in first-lien debt have Wells Fargo Capital Finance
Inc. as their agent.  The first-lien obligation is fully secured.
Interest has been paid at the default rate.

Gerald M. Gordon, Esq., and Brigid M. Higgins, Esq., at Gordon
Silver, in Las Vegas, Nevada, serve as counsel to the Debtors.
Garden City Group, Inc., is the claims agent.  William G. Kimmel &
Associates has been hired to provide an appraisal of the Debtors'
casino hotel/property.  Alvarez & Marsal serves as financial and
restructuring advisor.  Innovation Capital LLC serves as financial
advisor for capital raising transactions and M&A transactions.


216 WEST 18: May Use Mortgage Lender's Cash Through Jan. 31
-----------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Stuart M. Bernstein will hold a final hearing
Dec. 29, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. (Eastern Time) on the request of 216
Owner LLC, 216 West Mezz LLC, and 216 West 18 Holder LLC to use
cash collateral and provide adequate protection to 216 W 18 Lender
LLC, the mortgage lender, for any diminution in value of its
interests.

The Debtors intend to use Cash Collateral for the general purpose
of operating its mortgaged property through confirmation of their
proposed plan of liquidation, pursuant to a budget.  The Debtors
believe that the Mortgage Lender is the only party that has a
cognizable interest in the Cash Collateral.

Early this month, the Court granted the Debtors interim authority
to use Cash Collateral through the earlier of Jan. 31, 2012, or
upon an event of termination, which include failure by the Debtors
to obtain entry of a confirmation order for its chapter 11 plan by
Dec. 15, 2011.

The Court's interim order also directed a receiver to immediately
turn over all property of the Debtors, including all Cash
Collateral, to the Chief Restructuring Officer.  Prior to the
Petition Date, the Debtors engaged Steven A. Carlson as the
Debtors' CRO to oversee all aspects of the Debtors' business and
operations.  Prior to the Petition Date, Andrew L. Herz was
appointed as temporary receiver for the Mortgaged Property in a
foreclosure action pending as Index No. 650622/2009 E in the
Supreme Court of the State of New York, County of New York.

Judge Bernstein said the CRO will have the authority to delegate
to the Receiver the power to perform services with respect to the
Mortgaged Property in substantially the same manner as the
Receiver did prepetition, to the extent and as directed by the
CRO.

The Mortgage Lender, an affiliate of Fishman Holdings North
America Inc., purchased the Mortgage Loan from Bank of America
N.A.  As of Nov. 1, 2011, the total amount outstanding under the
Mortgage Loans aggregate $74,342,445.

The Mortgage Lender also purchased a mezzanine loan from BofA.
The bank, in turn, acquired the Mezz Loan from Torchlight Debt
Opportunity Fund II Mezzanine Sub LLC, f/k/a ING Clarion Debt
Opportunity Fund II Mezzanine Sub LLC.  As of Sept. 14, 2011, the
total amount outstanding under the Mezz Loan aggregate
$24,632,345.

petition, 216 West 18 Owner estimated $50 million to $100 million
in both assets and debts.

of liquidation originally proposed by Atlas Capital Group LLC.
The Plan provides for the transfer of the Mortgaged Property to
their mortgage lender.

represented by Herrick Feinstein LLP.

3900 BISCAYNE: Wants Plan Exclusivity Amid Lien Litigation
----------------------------------------------------------
3900 Biscayne, LLC, asks the Bankruptcy Court to extend its
exclusive period to solicit acceptances of its Plan of
Reorganization up to and including seven days after the date of
the confirmation hearing, to be scheduled by the Court.  The
Debtor will negotiate with parties-in-interest and attempt to
resolve any issues and/or objections to the Plan.

Peter D. Russin, Esq., at Meland Russin & Budwick, P.A., tells the
Court that the hearing to consider approval of the Disclosure
Statement was held on Aug. 9, 2011, after which the Court entered
an Order directing the Debtor to file an Adversary Proceeding and
ordering that the hearing to consider the approval of the
Disclosure Statement is continued and will be rescheduled to a
date after the adjudication of the Adversary Proceeding.  The
Adversary Proceeding was filed on Sept. 20, 2011, seeking to
determine validity, extent and priority of liens.  The Debtor has
and will continue to try and expedite the Adversary Proceeding.

                    About 3900 Biscayne, LLC

Meland Russin & Budwick, P.A., in Miami, represent the Debtor in
its Chapter 11 effort.  The Debtor disclosed $14,857,484 in total
assets and $13,691,533 in total liabilities as of the Chapter 11
filing.


AES CORPORATION: Moody's Raises Corp. Family Rating to 'Ba3'
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service upgraded several ratings of The AES
Corporation (AES), including its Corporate Family Rating,
Probability of Default Rating, and senior unsecured debt rating to
Ba3 from B1 as well as the company's trust preferred rating to B2
from B3. Concurrent with this rating action, Moody's affirmed the
company's senior secured bank credit facilities at Ba1. The rating
outlook is stable. The rating action was driven by the completion
of AES' acquisition of DPL, Inc. (DPL) for cash consideration of
$3.5 billion.

Upgrades:

   -- Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture, Upgraded to Ba3
      from B1

   -- Trust Preferred Securities, Upgraded to B2 from B3

   -- Corporate Family Rating, Upgraded to Ba3 from B1

Probability of Default Rating, Upgraded to Ba3 from B1

Affirmations:

   -- Senior Secured Bank Credit Facilities, Affirmed at Ba1

Outlook Actions:

   Issuer: The AES Corporation

   -- Outlook, Changed To Stable from Positive

LGD Point Estimate Changes:

   -- Senior Secured Credit Facilities, to LGD2, 17% from LGD1, 7%

   -- Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture, to LGD4, 55% from
      LGD4, 60%

RATINGS RATIONALE

"The acquisition of DPL has strengthened AES' financial position
by improving the scale, diversity and cash flow quality of its
North American asset base and offsets the company's business
concentration in South America" said Moody's Vice President Scott
Solomon.

Distributions from DPL, expected to range between $200-300 million
annually, will increase the scale of cash flows to AES and drive
an expected improvement in key parent level financial metrics.
Specifically, Moody's anticipates AES' ratios of parent operating
cash flow (POCF, defined as total subsidiary distributions less
parent overhead costs and parent interest expense) to parent level
debt and parent interest coverage to exceed 12% and 2.5 times,
respectively, beginning 2012 compared to 9% and 2 times,
respectively, during the twelve months ended December 31, 2010.
This expected improvement in AES' financial performance underpins
the rating action.

Additionally, the DPL acquisition will result in an increase in
cash flow generated by AES' regulated utility subsidiaries,
thereby reducing the company's overall risk profile. Regulated
cash flows are typically more stable and predictable than those
generated by contracted or competitive power generation, AES' two
other significant lines of businesses. According to Moody's
calculations, the introduction of DPL will increase parent level
cash flows generated by AES' regulated utility subsidiaries to
approximately 40% of its total from 25%. Moreover, Dayton Power
and Light Company (DP&L), DPL's primary operating subsidiary,
operates in a fairly supportive regulatory jurisdiction, is
provided a reasonable opportunity to recover costs and has
historically generated fairly stable cash flows. AES' most
significant regulated subsidiaries are located primarily in the
United States and Brazil.

The rating action takes into consideration various shareholder-
friendly measures initiated by AES over the past 18-months,
including significant share repurchases (approximately 34 million
shares have been repurchased from July 2010 through November 3,
2011 at a total cost of $378M) and the intention to pay a dividend
beginning the fourth quarter of 2012.

While credit dilutive, Moody's notes that the company's dividend
will be fairly modest at $120 million annually. The dividend will
be supported by the predictable cash flows derived from DPL and
the completion of certain construction projects that, combined,
are expected to increase subsidiary distributions to approximately
$1.5 billion annually from $1.0-$1.1 billion. The level of
dividends and share repurchases are limited by a covenant in the
company's bank facilities concerning restricted payments.

The affirmation of AES' speculative grade liquidity rating at SGL-
2 reflects the company's strong parent operating cash flows and
adequate headroom under its existing financial covenants. While
the funding of the DPL acquisition has greatly reduced AES' cash
balance, Moody's expects the company to quickly enhance its
liquidity position with the generation of parent free cash flow
and from the proceeds of previously announced assets sale. Going
forward, Moody's expects AES to maintain a minimum liquidity
target in the range of $350-$500 million, an amount that appears
adequate based on the company's business requirements.

The stable rating outlook for AES reflects expectations for
predictable POCF over the next several years as the company
integrates the DPL acquisition and completes certain construction
projects. The stable rating outlook further considers that
shareholder rewards programs, including share repurchases and the
payment of dividends will be managed in a way that is neutral to
the parent's credit quality.

In light of the upgrade and the introduction of a common dividend,
the prospects of a rating upgrade in the near-term is limited.
However. AES' CFR could be upgraded if the company's ratio of POCF
to parent level recourse debt exceeds 14% and cash coverage of
parent interest expense is above 3.0x on a sustainable basis.
Conversely, AES' rating could be downgraded if a more aggressive
financial policy emerges.

The AES Corporation is a global power company with generation and
distribution assets in Europe, Asia, Latin America, Africa and the
United States.

The methodologies used in this rating were Regulated Electric and
Gas Utilities published in August 2009, and Unregulated Utilities
and Power Companies published in August 2009.


AMBAC FINANCIAL: Has $75.5 Million Net Loss for 3rd Quarter
-----------------------------------------------------------
Ambac Financial Group, Inc. (OTC: ABKFQ) (Ambac) announced on
November 9, 2011, a third quarter 2011 net loss of $75.5 million,
or a net loss of $0.25 per share.  This compares to third quarter
2010 net income of $76.0 million, or net income of $0.25 per
share.  Relative to third quarter 2010, third quarter 2011
results were primarily driven by derivative product losses, a
decline in other (loss) income, and a higher provision for income
taxes, partially offset by lower net loss and loss expenses.

As previously announced, on November 8, 2010, Ambac filed for a
voluntary petition for relief under Chapter 11 of the United
States Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for
the Southern District of New York and will continue to operate in
the ordinary course of business as "debtor-in-possession" in
accordance with the applicable provisions of the Bankruptcy Code
and the orders of the Bankruptcy Court.

                   Third Quarter 2011 Summary

Relative to the third quarter of 2010:

   Net premiums earned declined $41 million to $102.1 million

   Net investment income increased $11.8 million to $81.6
   million

   Net loss and loss expenses incurred were down $225.6 million,
   resulting in a net benefit of $60.2 million

   Other (loss) income declined $191.9 million to a loss of $5.0
   million

   Income on variable interest entities ("VIEs") increased $28.6
   million to $55.0 million

   Net losses in the financial services segment, primarily
   relating to derivative product losses, increased $135.0
   million to $211.9 million

   Provision for income taxes increased $74.9 million to $75.0
   million

   Corporate interest and other expense declined $41.8 million
   to $1.8 million, primarily as a result of lower interest
   expense, as Ambac no longer accrues interest on its debt
   listed under Liabilities Subject to Compromise, following its
   bankruptcy filing on November 8, 2010

   Unrestricted cash, short-term securities and bonds at the
   holding company (Ambac Financial Group, Inc.) decreased $5.0
   million to $46.3 million

                        Financial Results

                       Net Premiums Earned

Net premiums earned for the third quarter of 2011 were $102.1
million, down 29% from $143.1 million earned in the third quarter
of 2010.  Net premiums earned include accelerated premiums, which
result from refundings, calls, and other accelerations recognized
during the quarter.  Accelerated premiums were $18.8 million in
the third quarter of 2011, down 37% from $30.0 million in the
third quarter 2010.  This was primarily driven by the continued
decline in the volume of calls and refundings in the public
finance sector in 2011 relative to the prior year.  Normal net
premiums earned, which exclude accelerated premiums, were $83.2
million in the third quarter of 2011, down 26% from $113.1
million in the third quarter of 2010.  Normal net premiums earned
for the period have been negatively impacted by the lack of new
business written and the continued runoff of the insured
portfolio.

                     Net Investment Income

Net investment income for the third quarter of 2011 was $81.6
million, an increase of 17% over $69.8 million earned in the
third quarter of 2010.  The increase was primarily attributable
to a higher average portfolio yield and an increase in the size
of the long term invested asset base.  The higher average
portfolio yield was achieved through the ongoing re-allocation of
portfolio investments from tax exempt municipals to taxable
securities having higher pre-tax yields and the impact of holding
a greater position in Ambac Assurance guaranteed securities
versus the same period in 2010.

               Financial Guarantee Loss Reserves

Loss and loss expenses for the three months ended September 30,
2011 was a net benefit of $60.2 million as compared to a net loss
of $165.4 million for the three month period ending September 30,
2010.  Losses for the three months ended September 30, 2011 were
driven by lower estimated losses in the first-lien RMBS and
student loan portfolios, offset by an increase in estimated
losses for the second-lien RMBS portfolio and for certain
structured finance credits.

Loss and loss expenses paid, net of recoveries from all policies,
amounted to a net recovery of $18.2 million during the third
quarter 2011 versus $63.9 million net paid for the same period in
2010.  The amount of actual claims paid during each period was
impacted by the payment moratorium imposed on March 24, 2010 by
the court overseeing the Segregated Account rehabilitation.
Claims presented to Ambac Assurance and unpaid during the third
quarter of 2011 amounted to $337.5 million versus $428.3 million
during the same period in 2010.  Since the establishment of the
Segregated Account in March 2010, a total of $2,451.2 million of
claims have been presented to Ambac Assurance and remain unpaid
due to the moratorium.

Loss reserves (gross of reinsurance and net of subrogation
recoveries) for all RMBS insurance exposures as of September 30,
2011, were $3,688.6 million, including $2,442.1 million relating
to claims on RMBS exposures that have been presented since March
24, 2010 and unpaid as a result of the claims moratorium.  RMBS
reserves as of September 30, 2011 are net of $2,570.2 million of
estimated remediation recoveries.  The estimate of remediation
recoveries related to material representation and warranty
breaches is down 0.1% from $2,573.3 million reported as of June
30, 2011.  Ambac has initiated and will continue to initiate
lawsuits and other methods to achieve compliance with the
repurchase obligations in the securitization documents with
respect to sponsors who disregard their obligations to
repurchase.

        Net Change in Fair Value of Credit Derivatives

The net change in fair value of credit derivatives, which
consists of realized and unrealized gains/(losses) and other
settlements on credit derivatives, was a net gain of $4.5 million
for the third quarter of 2011, down 52% from a net gain of $9.4
million for the third quarter of 2010.  The net gain on change in
fair value of credit derivatives for the three months ended
September 30, 2011 resulted primarily from CDS fees earned and
the reversal of unrealized losses associated with terminations,
partially offset by declines in certain reference obligation
prices particularly related to student loan securitizations.

                    Other (Loss) Income

Other (loss) income for the three months ended September 30, 2011
was a loss of $5.0 million compared to income of $186.9 million
for the three months ended September 30, 2010.  The third quarter
2011 loss was primarily attributable to mark-to-market losses
related to Ambac's option to call up to $500 million par of
surplus notes at 20% of par value, and the impact of the movement
in the British Pound and the Euro to U.S. Dollar exchange rates
on premium receivables.  Other income in third quarter 2010 was
driven by a net gain of $157.8 million resulting from the
consolidating effect of terminating the reinsurance agreement
between Ambac Assurance and Ambac UK.

              Income on Variable Interest Entities

Income on variable interest entities for the three months ended
September 30, 2011 was $55.0 compared to $26.4 million for the
three month period ending September 30, 2010.  Included within
income on variable interest entities are gains or losses
attributable to consolidating or deconsolidating VIEs and the
financial results of the VIEs during the period after elimination
of intercompany transactions (generally financial guarantee
contracts).  Most VIE assets and liabilities consolidated by
Ambac are carried at fair value with changes included in
earnings.  However, the net gains for the three months ended
September 30, 2011 primarily related to a VIE consolidated
effective April 1, 2011, which contains significant intangible
assets, the carrying values of which are amortized through
earnings over time.  For the three months ended September 30,
2011, adverse changes in the expected performance of this
transaction resulted in a net gain of $53.1 million in
consolidation, reflecting a decrease in the fair value of the
VIE's liabilities, partially offset by an impairment charge
against its intangible assets.  Income for the three months ended
September 30, 2010 reflects an increase in the fair value of VIE
net assets plus net cash receipts by Ambac's insurance
subsidiaries on financial guarantee policies associated with
these VIEs.

                      Financial Services

The financial services segment consists of the investment
agreement business and the derivative products business, both of
which are in run-off.  The derivatives products business has been
positioned to record gains in a rising interest rate environment
in order to provide a hedge against the impact of rising rates on
certain exposures within the financial guarantee segment. For the
current quarter, the financial services segment produced a net
loss of $211.9 million compared to a net loss of $76.9 million
for the third quarter of 2010.  Results for both periods
primarily reflect the impact of mark to market losses in the
derivative products portfolio arising from declining interest
rates, partially offset by the impact of Ambac's credit risk on
the fair value of uncollateralized derivative liabilities.

                   Reorganization Items, Net

For purposes of presenting an entity's financial evolution during
a Chapter 11 reorganization, the financial statements for periods
including and after filing the Chapter 11 petition distinguish
transactions and events that are directly associated with the
reorganization from the ongoing operations of the business.
Reorganization items in the third quarter of 2011 totaled $8.5
million and were primarily related to professional advisory fees.

                  Provision for Income Taxes

Provision for income tax expense was $75.0 million for the three
months ended September 30, 2011 compared to $0.1 million for the
three month period ending September 30, 2010.  This increase
primarily related to the accrual of additional Federal income tax
expense to bring the overall reserve for income taxes in line
with Ambac's intent to settle the IRS Dispute, inclusive of
amounts contributed by both the Company and Ambac Assurance as
contemplated by the Mediation Agreement with the Creditors'
Committee, Ambac Assurance and OCI.

                   Balance Sheet and Liquidity

Total assets decreased during the third quarter of 2011, from
$27.9 billion at June 30, 2011 to $27.6 billion, primarily due to
a decline in the amount of VIE assets during the current period,
partially offset by an increase in premium receivables.

The fair value of the consolidated non-VIE investment portfolio
decreased from $7.08 billion (amortized cost of $6.6 billion) as
of June 30, 2011 to $7.06 billion (amortized cost of $6.6
billion) as of September 30, 2011.

The financial guarantee non-VIE investment portfolio had a fair
value of $6.2 billion (amortized cost of $5.7 billion) as of
September 30, 2011.  The portfolio consists of primarily high
quality municipal and corporate bonds, asset backed securities,
U.S. Agencies, Agency MBS, as well as non-agency MBS, including
Ambac Assurance guaranteed RMBS.

Liabilities subject to compromise totaled approximately $1.7
billion at September 30, 2011.  As required by ASC Topic 852, the
amount of Liabilities subject to compromise represents Ambac's
estimate of known or potential pre-petition claims to be
addressed in connection with the Chapter 11 filing. Such claims
are subject to future adjustments potentially resulting from,
among other things, negotiations with creditors, rejection of
executor contracts and orders of the bankruptcy court.  As of
September 30, 2011, liabilities subject to compromise consist of
the following:

Accrued interest payable                              $68,123
Other                                                  17,176
Senior unsecured notes                              1,222,189
Directly-issued Subordinated capital securities       400,000
                                                   -----------
Consolidated liabilities subject to compromise     $1,707,488

          Overview of Ambac Assurance Statutory Results

As of September 30, 2011, Ambac Assurance reported statutory
capital and surplus of approximately $273.1 million, down from
$476.4 million as of June 30, 2011. Ambac Assurance's statutory
financial statements include the combined results of Ambac
Assurance's general account and the Segregated Account (formed on
March 24, 2010).  Statutory capital and surplus were impacted by
a statutory net loss of $181 million for the three-months ended
September 30, 2011.  This net loss was primarily attributable to
an increase in income taxes incurred and impairment losses on
intercompany loans to Ambac Assurance's derivative products
subsidiary.

Ambac Assurance's claims-paying resources amount to approximately
$6.6 billion as of September 30, 2011, down $0.3 billion from
$6.9 billion at June 30, 2011.  This excludes Ambac Assurance UK
Limited's claims-paying resources of approximately $1.0 billion.
The decline in claims paying resources was primarily attributable
to the items.

AMERISTAR CASINOS: Moody's Says Gaming Would Be Long-Term Positive
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service said: The addition of a casino in
Massachusetts to Ameristar Casinos, Inc.'s (B1, stable) existing
portfolio of gaming assets would be a long-term positive for the
company's credit profile, assuming it is awarded a license in the
state.

The principal methodologies used in rating Ameristar Casinos Inc.
were Global Gaming published in December 2009, and Loss Given
Default for Speculative-Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S.,
Canada and EMEA published in June 2009.  Other methodologies and
factors that may have been considered in the process of rating
this issuer can also be found on Moody's Web site.

Ameristar Casinos, Inc. (Ameristar) owns and operates eight
hotel/casinos in seven jurisdictions. The company generates
approximately $1.2 billion of consolidated net revenues.


AMERICAN AIRLINES: Files for Chapter 11 to Cut Labor Costs
----------------------------------------------------------
AMR Corp. and its subsidiaries including American Airlines, the
third largest airline in the United States, filed for bankruptcy
protection in Manhattan after failing to secure cost-cutting labor
agreements.

AMR, previously the world's largest airline prior to mergers by
other airlines, is the last of the so-called U.S. legacy airlines
to seek court protection from creditors.

Fort Worth, Texas-based AMR disclosed $24.7 billion in assets and
$29.6 billion in debt as of Sept. 30, 2011, including:

  $4.6 billion of secured variable and fixed rate
       indebtedness outstanding with maturities through 2023;

  $2.0 billion of enhanced equipment trust certificates
       -- EETCs -- outstanding with maturities through 2021; and

  $1.6 billion in aggregate principal amount of special
       facility revenue bonds accounted for as debt by AMR as
       of September 30, 2011, with maturities through 2036.

Most of the debt is publicly traded.

Thomas W. Horton, 50, most recently AMR's president, replaced
Gerard Arpey effective on the Petition Date, as chairman and CEO.
Mr. Horton said normal flight schedules will continue on American
and its American Eagle regional unit for now, along with the
airline's frequent-flier program, the company said.  A spinoff of
American Eagle, which already had been delayed from this year into
2012, is on hold, Mr. Horton said.

Mr. Arpey, 53, opted to retire after the board asked him to stay,
Mr. Horton said.  Mr. Arpey will join Emerald Creek Group LLC, a
private-equity firm founded by former Continental Airlines Inc.
CEO Larry Kellner, on Dec. 1, the firm said in a statement.

American Airlines, American Eagle and the AmericanConnection
carrier serve 260 airports in more than 50 countries and
territories with, on average, more than 3,300 daily flights.  The
combined network fleet numbers more than 900 aircraft.

As of Nov. 1, 2011, American Airlines had a fleet of more than 600
aircraft and Eagle had a fleet of approximately 300 aircraft.
American Airlines expects to acquire 460 narrowbody aircraft
beginning during the period 2013-2022.  Included in the entire
package of acquisition agreements is $13 billion of committed
financing from the aircraft manufacturers.

AMR employs more than 88,000 people domestically and abroad.

AMR Corp.'s shares of common stock, par value $1, are publicly
traded under the symbol "AMR" on the New York Stock Exchange. As
of Oct. 13, 2011, there were 335,227,024 shares of AMR Corp.
common stock outstanding.

AMR's board of directors determined that a Chapter 11
reorganization is in the best interest of the Company and its
stakeholders.  Just as with the Company's major airline
competitors in recent years, the Chapter 11 process enables
American Airlines and American Eagle to continue conducting normal
business operations while they restructure their debt, costs and
other obligations.

AMR said it must address its cost structure, including labor
costs, to enable it to capitalize on the foundational strengths it
has put in place and secure its future.

"[Bankruptcy] was a difficult decision, but it is the necessary
and right path for us to take -- and take now -- to become a more
efficient, financially stronger, and competitive airline," Mr.
Horton said.

AMR has $4.1 billion of unrestricted cash and short-term
investments as of Nov. 25, 2011.  The aggregate net book value of
all assets located outside the United States as of Nov. 28, 2011,
is roughly $550 million.

The cash, as well as cash generated from operations, is
anticipated to be more than sufficient to assure that its vendors,
suppliers and other business partners will be paid timely and in
full for goods and services provided during the Chapter 11 process
in accordance with customary terms.

AMR expects that for the 30-day period following the Chapter 11
filing, cash receipts will total $1.85 billion and cash
disbursements will aggregate $2.15 billion.  Unpaid obligations
will be $3.1 billion and unpaid receivables will total $1 billion.

American said in court filings that it needed permission to pay
$50 million in claims from critical vendors.  According to
Bloomberg News, Harvey Miller, Esq., at Weil, Gotshal & Manges
LLP, said the company will later request approval to pay an
additional $35 million in claims.

At the "first day" hearing Nov. 29, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Sean
Lane approved American's requests to pay employees, continue its
customer programs, and pay what the company said are vendors that
are critical to maintaining its operations.

The Wall Street Journal reports the bankruptcy filing sent AMR
shares down 84% to 26 cents each in 4 p.m. trading Nov. 29 on the
New York Stock Exchange, capping a 12-month period in which the
company's stock price already had fallen by nearly 80%.

The Journal's Doug Cameron, Mike Spector and Jack Nicas report
that AMR's decision to enter bankruptcy protection surprised some
industry observers but drew praise from bankruptcy experts, who
said troubled companies often wait too long to file. They also
said AMR will likely benefit from the experience of its
competitors in bankruptcy.

WSJ also says the bankruptcy filing could trigger industry
consolidation, with US Airways Group Inc., the product of an
earlier merger, seen by analysts as a potential fit.  Any
attempted merger, however, would unleash huge integration issues,
further upset labor groups and face antitrust concerns.

AMERICAN AIRLINES: Says It's Business As Usual While in Ch. 11
--------------------------------------------------------------
MR Corporation, the parent company of American Airlines, Inc. and
AMR Eagle Holding Corporation, disclosed that in order to achieve
a cost and debt structure that is industry competitive and thereby
assure its long-term viability and ability to continue delivering
a world-class travel experience for its customers, the Company and
certain of its U.S.-based subsidiaries (including American and
American Eagle), filed voluntary petitions for Chapter 11
reorganization in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of New York.

AMR's Board of Directors determined that a Chapter 11
reorganization is in the best interest of the Company and its
stakeholders.  Just as with the Company's major airline
competitors in recent years, the Chapter 11 process enables
American Airlines and American Eagle to continue conducting normal
business operations while they restructure their debt, costs and
other obligations.

American Airlines and American Eagle are operating normal flight
schedules today, and their reservations, customer service,
AAdvantage(R) program, Admirals Clubs and all other operations are
conducting business as usual.  Likewise, throughout the Chapter 11
process, American and American Eagle expect to continue to:

-- provide safe and reliable service;

-- fly normal schedules;

-- honor tickets and reservations, and make exchanges and refunds
   as usual;

-- fully maintain AAdvantage frequent flyer and other customer
   service programs, and ensure all AAdvantage miles and elites
   status earned by members remain secure and intact;

-- provide Admirals Club access and similar amenities to members
   and eligible customers;

-- remain an integral member of the oneworld(R) alliance, of which
   American is a founding member, and continue its codeshare
   partnerships;

-- provide employee wages, healthcare coverage, vacation, and \
   other benefits, without interruption; and

-- pay suppliers for goods and services received during the
   reorganization process.

These filings have no direct legal impact on American's operations
outside the United States.

Thomas W. Horton, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President
of AMR and American Airlines, said, "This was a difficult
decision, but it is the necessary and right path for us to take -
and take now - to become a more efficient, financially stronger,
and competitive airline.

"We have met our challenges head on, taking all possible action to
secure our long-term position.  In recent years, even as the
airline industry faced unprecedented challenges, American
strengthened our domestic and global network; fortified our
alliances with the best partners around the world; launched a
transformational fleet deal that will give American the youngest
and most efficient fleet in the industry; and invested in our
product, service and technology to build a world class customer
experience.

"But as we have made clear with increasing urgency in recent
weeks, we must address our cost structure, including labor costs,
to enable us to capitalize on these foundational strengths and
secure our future.  Our very substantial cost disadvantage
compared to our larger competitors, all of which restructured
their costs and debt through Chapter 11, has become increasingly
untenable given the accelerating impact of global economic
uncertainty and resulting revenue instability, volatile and rising
fuel prices, and intensifying competitive challenges.

"Our Board decided that it was necessary to take this step now to
restore the Company's profitability, operating flexibility, and
financial strength.  We are committed to working as quickly and
efficiently as possible to appropriately restructure American so
that it can emerge from Chapter 11 well-positioned to assure the
Company's long term viability and its ability to compete
effectively in the marketplace," Horton stated.

Horton continued, "Throughout the restructuring process, as
always, our customers remain our top priority and they can
continue to depend on us for the safe, reliable travel and high
quality service they know and expect from us.  We intend to
maintain a strong presence in domestic and international markets,
including our cornerstones in Dallas/Fort Worth, Chicago, New
York, Miami and Los Angeles.  As we and all airlines routinely do,
we will continue to evaluate our operations and service, assuring
that our network is as efficient and productive as possible.

"Achieving the competitive cost structure we need remains a key
imperative in this process and, as one part of that, we plan to
initiate further negotiations with all of our unions to reduce our
labor costs to competitive levels."

"American Airlines has a strong, proud history and we will have a
successful future.  Working through this difficult, but necessary
action and process, I am confident we will succeed in enhancing
our reputation as a global leader known for excellence and
innovation, a travel partner customers seek out, and a carrier
that serves communities throughout the world," Mr. Horton
concluded.

The Company has approximately $4.1 billion in unrestricted cash
and short-term investments.  This cash, as well as cash generated
from operations, is anticipated to be more than sufficient to
assure that its vendors, suppliers and other business partners
will be paid timely and in full for goods and services provided
during the Chapter 11 process in accordance with customary terms.
Because of the Company's current cash position, the need for
debtor-in-possession financing is neither considered necessary nor
anticipated.

American is filing motions with the Court seeking interim relief
that will ensure the Company's continued ability to conduct normal
operations, including the ability to:

-- provide employee wages, healthcare coverage, vacation, and
   other benefits without interruption;

-- honor pre-petition obligations to customers and continue
   customer programs including American's AAdvantage frequent
   flyer program;

-- pay for fuel under existing fuel supply contracts, and honor
   existing fuel supply, distribution and storage agreements; and

-- assume and honor contracts relating to interline agreements
   with other airlines.
AMR's lead counsel is Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP and its financial
advisor is Rothschild, Inc.

AMR will be filing monthly operating reports with the Bankruptcy
Court and also plans to post these monthly operating reports on
the Investor Relations section of AA.com.  The company will
continue to file quarterly and annual reports with the Securities
and Exchange Commission, which will also be available in the
Investor Relations section of AA.com.

AMERICAN AIRLINES: G. Arpey Resigns as CEO on Day of Bankr. Filing
------------------------------------------------------------------
The Board of Directors of AMR Corporation named Thomas W. Horton
chairman and chief executive officer of the Company, succeeding
Gerard Arpey, who informed the Board of his decision to retire.
Horton will also succeed Arpey as chairman and chief executive
officer of American.  Mr. Horton will continue to serve as
President of AMR and American.

". . . .  we entered a new phase in the evolution of this great
company with a talented and experienced new leader, Tom Horton,
succeeding Gerard Arpey, who skillfully led our company through
some of its most challenging times," said Armando M. Codina, lead
independent director of AMR.  "With more than 22 years at
American, Tom is ideally suited to guide the company through this
next important period.  Tom's experience in a different company
and industry gives him a unique blend of experience and
objectivity that will serve the company well as we work through
this process to achieve a competitive cost structure.  The Board
has great confidence that, together, Tom and the industry's best
workforce and management team will reaffirm American's position of
pride and leadership among global airlines.

"For 30 years Gerard Arpey has given his all to this company,
especially during the last decade," Mr. Codina continued. "Gerard
is a person of exceptional integrity, intelligence and commitment,
and he helped our company to achieve amazing things against
sometimes staggering odds.  Although we had asked that he continue
to lead American, we understand and respect his decision to retire
and entrust the company he loves to a new leader for a new time.
This Board will always be grateful for Gerard's unwavering
commitment to what is best for the company."

"It is a privilege and an honor to lead this company and I intend
to do everything in my power to help restore its position of
leadership in the global airline industry," said Mr. Horton.
"This is a difficult business in the best of times, and I cannot
think of anyone I would rather have worked with or had as a friend
for over two decades than Gerard Arpey.  He is not only a great
business leader; he is also a man of honor.  With characteristic
selflessness, he decided it was time for a new leader to take the
company forward and I am grateful for his - and our Board's -
confidence. I know we can all count on Gerard's friendship and
encouragement as we work to reaffirm American's place among the
world's premier airlines."

"The process launched will no doubt require far-ranging and
sometimes difficult change, but it represents an opportunity to
rebuild American in a way that assures its ability to compete in a
changed world," Mr. Arpey said.  "I appreciate the Board's
confidence in me, but I also believe that executing on this plan
requires a new leader for a new time.  That is why I informed the
Board of my decision to retire and, with my enthusiastic support,
the Board decided to appoint Tom as CEO.  It has been an honor to
serve this company alongside the men and women of American
Airlines who have met challenge after challenge with perseverance,
skill, determination, and grace.  I know they will continue to do
so."

AMERICAN AIRLINES: PBGC Says $1-Bil. Would Be Lost if Plan Ended
----------------------------------------------------------------
Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation Director Josh Gotbaum
released this statement on the Bankruptcy Filing of AMR Corp.:

". . . . American Airlines' parent company filed for bankruptcy.
When this happens employees and retirees worry ? and they should.
In past bankruptcies, workers and retirees have lost their
healthcare and seen their pensions cut.  Based on our estimates
American Airlines employees could lose a billion dollars in
pension benefits if American terminates their plans.

"This is true even if PBGC becomes responsible for those plans,
because Congress has limited the size of the pensions we can pay.
Unfortunately, when the agency assumed airline plans in the past,
many people's pensions were cut, in some cases dramatically.
That's why PBGC always tries first to preserve plans, even after
companies enter bankruptcy.  As we did with Visteon, and with some
plans at Delta and Northwest Airlines, we will encourage American
to fix its financial problems and still keep its pension plans."

American Airlines sponsors four traditional pension plans that
cover almost 130,000 participants.  At present, the plans
collectively had about $8.3 billion in assets to cover about $18.5
billion in benefits.  If American Airlines were to end their
plans, the agency would be responsible for paying about $17
billion in benefits; about $1 billion in benefits would be lost.

A termination would also weaken the financial condition of PBGC,
which has a record $26 billion deficit as a result of failed plans
the agency has already assumed.

In cases where plans cannot be saved, PBGC steps in and pays
benefits. Currently, the agency is responsible for about 1.5
million people in more than 4,300 failed plans.  Each month, on
average, PBGC pays about $460 million to more than 870,000
retirees and is responsible for future payments to 628,000 people
who haven't retired.

                            About PBGC

PBGC protects the pension benefits of 44 million Americans in
27,500 private-sector pension plans.  The agency is directly
responsible for paying the benefits of more than 1.5 million
people in failed pension plans.  PBGC receives no taxpayer dollars
and never has. Its operations are financed by insurance premiums
and with assets and recoveries from failed plans.

AMR CORP: Flyers Rights Notes of Some Risks
-------------------------------------------
FlyersRights.org said in a statement that AMR Corp, American
Airlines' parent corporation, said it was seeking chapter 11
bankruptcy protection due to significant losses over the last few
years, leaving many passengers to ask what protections they have
in the event American Airlines fails.

-- There is risk that tickets will not be honored by AA should
   their restructuring fail.

-- Ticket holders are unsecured creditors, last on the list of
   creditors, so if AA shuts their doors there will be little to
   NO relief for affected ticket holders.

-- Reciprocity rules, under which airlines were required to honor
   other airlines' tickets in cases such as this, expired in 2007.
   Ticket holders will be left holding the bag if AA does fall.

-- Some airlines may have insurance to guard against passenger
   loss in this situation, but it is not known if American
   Airlines has insurance that would cover the kind of volume that
   AA would have to cover if they fail entirely.

AMERICAN AIRLINES: AFA Union to Protect American Eagle Attendants
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA) International
President Veda Shook issued this statement after AMR Corp, the
parent company of American Eagle and American Airlines, filed for
Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization:

"As details emerge regarding the restructuring of American Eagle
and American Airlines, AFA is prepared to represent the best
interests of the American Eagle Flight Attendants.  The AFA
leadership at American Eagle is fully engaged in responding to the
bankruptcy filing and, along with our financial and legal
advisors, will monitor developments closely.  We also are
committed to working closely with the Association of Professional
Flight Attendants, coordinating efforts as we protect our Flight
Attendant careers.

"AFA will continue to defend the jobs, pay and benefits for the
over 1,500 Flight Attendants at American Eagle.  We are committed
to protecting American Eagle Flight Attendants, ensuring the long-
term success of the airline and working swiftly through the
bankruptcy process with as little disruption as possible.  The
filing does not change pay, benefits or working conditions for
Flight Attendants as their contract remains intact.

"Flight Attendants will continue our work as the safety
professionals we are proud to be.  We will work closely with all
of our fellow front-line workers and their unions throughout the
bankruptcy.  As members of AFA, American Eagle Flight Attendants
remain proud of the contributions they make daily to the airline.
Chapter 11 is not an excuse to lay failed business decisions on
the backs of the hard-working Flight Attendants.  Pure and simple:
Flight Attendants and other front-line workers are the airline's
greatest asset and they should be recognized and respected as
such.

"AFA will ensure Flight Attendants play an integral role in the
reshaping and rebuilding of American Eagle.  AFA and our team of
bankruptcy experts will work tirelessly to see that creative
solutions are utilized throughout this process.  We know -- and
management knows -- what happens when a carrier fights with its
workers in bankruptcy.  The key to successful bankruptcy
reorganization is commitment to working together toward a strong
future.

"AFA has vast experience in restructuring and we have been
successful in preserving our profession along the way.  With AFA's
legal and collective bargaining experience, American Eagle Flight
Attendants have industry-leading resources at their disposal."

The Association of Flight Attendants is the world's largest Flight
Attendant union.  Focused 100 percent on Flight Attendant issues,
AFA has been the leader in advancing the Flight Attendant
profession for over 65 years.  Serving as the voice for Flight
Attendants in the workplace, in the aviation industry, in the

Attendant profession by raising wages, benefits and working
conditions.  Nearly 60,000 Flight Attendants at 24 airlines come

ATLANTIC & PACIFIC: Seeks Court Nod for New Labor Deals
-------------------------------------------------------
Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review reports that Great Atlantic &
Pacific Tea Co. is requesting court approval to tweak labor
agreements with more than a dozen local unions, a move the
grocery-store chain says is essential to its restructuring.

As reported in the Nov. 29, 2011 edition of the TCR, 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.

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.

                       About Great Atlantic

Founded in 1859, Montvale, New Jersey-based Great Atlantic &
Pacific is a supermarket retailer, operating under a variety of
well-known trade names, or "banners" across the mid-Atlantic and
Northeastern United States.  Before filing for bankruptcy in 2010,
A&P operated 429 stores in 8 states and the District of Columbia
under the following trade names: A&P, Waldbaum's, Pathmark,
Pathmark Sav-a-Center, Best Cellars, The Food Emporium, Super
Foodmart, Super Fresh and Food Basics.  A&P had 41,000 employees
prior to the bankruptcy filing.

debt and equity financing announced this month.  The proposed
financing, tentatively approved by the bankruptcy judge, allows

BEAR MOUNTAIN: Court Denies Secured Financing From North Cascade
----------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Washington
has denied the motion of Bear Mountain Ranch Holdings, LLC, for
authorization to obtain secured credit, filed Oct. 21, 2011.

As reported in the TCR on Nov. 10, 2011, the Debtor asked the
Bankruptcy Court for authorization to obtain secured credit from
North Cascade National Bank that would be disbursed to cure
defaults under a certain promissory note.

The promissory note was executed by Scofield Corporation in favor
of GBI Holdings, LLC, as payee, and secured by a deed of trust
against certain real property owned by Scofield, and commonly
known as the Boathouse Parcel.

The Debtor related that the promissory note is in default, and a
non-judicial deed of trust foreclosure is pending, with a
Trustee's sale that was set for Nov. 4, 2011, and is continued to
Nov. 18, 2011.  The amount necessary to cure the defaults as of
Nov. 7, 2011, is estimated to be $58,920.

The Debtor explained that the Boathouse Parcel serves as the
access point for a water distribution system that is the sole
source of irrigation water to the orchard operations of BMRH, as
well as the sole source of irrigation water to the golf course
that is owned and operated by Bear Mountain Ranch Golf Course,
LLC, and the residence and adjoining property owned and occupied
by Jerry Scofield and Mary Pat Scofield.  Overall, the Water
System provides 75 million gallons of irrigation water per year to
these users.  The Boathouse Parcel and the Water System provide an
indispensable source of water to BMRH that would be lost at the
Trustee's Sale.

CENTRAL FALLS, R.I.: Inks Agreement with Labor Unions
-----------------------------------------------------
The Associated Press reports that the Rhode Island appointed
receiver in Central Falls and public-sector unions for the
insolvent city on Nov. 23 inked new contracts outside of
bankruptcy proceedings that were described as critical in helping
return the municipality to fiscal health.

According to the report, Joseph Whelan, one of the lead
negotiators for the receiver's office, said that while the new
five-year contracts include annual pay hikes, they also include
"tremendous" savings derived from health benefit and pension cuts.
There will also be significant reductions in overtime through a
consolidation of fire, police and dispatch service; outsourcing of
those services, which had been a possibility, will not be
necessary, he added.  Under the agreements, there also will be no
additional layoffs, the report notes.

Matthew McGowan, an attorney representing retirees, told The AP
those talks have been "positive" but declined to say whether he's
hopeful an agreement can be reached.  He said in a court filing
this month that the city doesn't meet the requirements for
bankruptcy protection because it didn't undertake "good faith"
negotiations with the retirees ahead of time, as required,
according to the AP.

The AP notes that the new contracts were described by union
leaders as tough to swallow, but were nevertheless approved
overwhelmingly.  The union representing city workers, Council 94,
approved the contract 23-0.  The police and fire unions approved
their contracts by votes of 17-1 and 28-1, respectively.

                        About Central Falls

Central Falls is a city in Providence County, Rhode Island.  The
population was 18,928 at the 2000 census.  Central Falls is the
smallest and most densely populated city in Rhode Island.

Central Falls sought bankruptcy protection under Chapter 9 of the
U.S. Bankruptcy Code (Bankr. D. R.I. Case No. 11-13105) on Aug. 1,
2011.  The Chapter 9 filing was made after former Rhode Island
Supreme Court Judge Robert Flanders, who serves as state-appointed
receiver for the city, was unable to negotiate significant
concessions from unions representing police officers, firefighters
and other city workers.  The city grappled with an $80 million

COSTA DORADA: Files Debt Stipulation With Scotia de Puerto Rico
---------------------------------------------------------------
Debtor Costa Dorada Apartments Corp. and secured creditor
Scotiabank de Puerto Rico asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Puerto Rico to approve a stipulation for the payment
of the Debtor's loan to Scotiabank "within the process of its
Chapter 11 Plan."

Scotiabank is a secured creditor of the Debtor as the holder in
due course of three mortgage notes that were given in pledge to
warrant a commercial loan originated for the principal sum of
$2,500,000 and later increased to $3,150,000.  The loan is secured
by a first mortgage on two (2) properties of the Debtor.

The agreement was reached under these terms:

  (a) The Debtor accepts that as of Sept. 15, 2011, it owes
      Scotiabank $1,100,441 for principal, accrued interest in the
      amount of $171,068, $95,547 for escrow account and $315,000
      for prepetition attorney fees.  Interest will increase at a
      rate of $158.28 daily.

  (b) The Debtor has agreed to pay this debt thorough the Chapter
      11 plan.  Notwithstanding, in the event the instant case is
      dismissed, Scotiabank may continue with this agreement,
      subject to Debtor's compliance.  Otherwise, Scotiabank may
      modify or terminate it.

  (c) The Debtor will have a term of twenty four (24) months,
      counted from the date the agreement is signed, to sell the
      units and complete the payment in full of Scotiabank's loan.

  (d) All units will be sold for a price of no less than $150,000
      unless the parties mutually agree to a different price.

  (f) If the Debtor is not able to sell enough units to complete
      the payment of Scotiabank's loan within the twenty four
      months period it will agree to the lifting of the stay in
      favor of Scotiabank on all the unsold units that are part of
      the collateral.  The stay will be lifted to allow the bank
      to continue with its foreclosure action now pending on the
      State Court.  The stay will be lifted upon a written
      certification to the Court that the sale period has elapsed
      and the loan remains unpaid.

   g) A realtor will be retained for the marketing and sale of
      apartment units.  It will be hired by mutual agreement of
      the parties.  In case the parties are not able reach an
      agreement on the hiring of the realtor the matter will be
      taken to the consideration of the Court.  Each party will
      submit a candidate from which the court will make a final
      determination.

  (h) While the sale of the apartment units is being completed the
      Debtor will make monthly post-petition adequate protection
      payments to Scotiabank in the amount of $6,000 starting with
      the signature of this stipulation and every months
      thereafter.

  (i) All payments received by Scotiabank from the monthly
      payments and the proceeds of the sales will be first applied
      to the accrued interest of the loan.  The rest will be
      applied to the principal of the loan.

  (j) This stipulation will become integral part any
      reorganization plan the Debtor submits for the approval of
      the Court and its creditors.

Pursuant to Rule 4001 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure
(FRBP), the movants request that should no objection to this
agreement be filed within twenty one (21) days from notice of the
same, an Order approving all the terms and conditions above stated
be entered.

DIPPIN' DOTS: Hiring Farmer & Wright as Bankruptcy Counsel
----------------------------------------------------------
Dippin' Dots, Inc., is asking the Bankruptcy Court for authority

Debtor over the past year in an attempt to restructure its debts
and in defense of a foreclosure action filed by its largest
creditor.  The Debtor does not owe counsel any fees at the time of
filing.

The Debtor proposes to pay $225 per hour for Mr. Farmer and $205
per hour for Mr. Wright.  Paralegal time will be billed at $85 per
hour.  The firm's other professionals who may provide services in
the case are Stephanie B. Rumfelt, Paralegal; and Melody N.

retention of other professionals in this case upon approval by the
Court.

with the Debtor, creditors, United States Trustee, or any person
employed in the Office of the United States Trustee or any other
party in interest, or their attorneys.  Counsel is disinterested
within the meaning of 11 U.S.C. Sec. 101(14).

DIPPIN' DOTS: DIP Financing Requires Asset Sale by June 2012
------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Thomas H. Fulton set a hearing for Jan. 19, 2012, at 10:00
a.m. (Central Time) to grant final approval on the request of
Dippin' Dots, Inc., to use cash collateral of Regions Bank, its
primary secured lender, as well as the Debtor's bankruptcy loan
provided by the bank.

The DIP loan requires the Debtor to meet certain milestones on the
sale of its assets.

Dippin' Dots on Nov. 7 obtained interim authority to use cash
collateral.  At a hearing on Nov. 17, the Debtor won interim
permission to borrow $201,842 from Regions Bank.

Regions Bank consented to the Debtor's interim use of cash
collateral through Nov. 17, as provided in the Nov. 7 Interim Cash
Collateral Order.  The bank, however, objected to the Debtor's
continued use of collateral.

Regions Bank holds a validly perfected security interest on
inventory, accounts receivable, cash, furniture and fixtures, and
other intangibles.  As of the bankruptcy filing date, Regions Bank
is owed $11,100,000 collectively, on eight different promissory
notes.

In its motion, the Debtor said Regions Bank is under-secured, but
the use of cash collateral will not jeopardize or impair the
bank's security interest but will allow the Debtor to continue to
conduct its business and maximize the value for both Regions and
the unsecured creditors.

Regions Bank thinks otherwise.  The bank said the Debtor is not
capable of providing adequate protection in exchange of the cash
collateral use.  Regions said it would agree to the cash
collateral use if the Debtor would commit itself to a timeline
under which its assets would be sold as a going concern pursuant
to 11 U.S.C. Sec. 363, subject to competitive bidding and auction.

The Interim DIP Order provides that, unless the Debtor and Regions
have agreed in writing to the terms of a consensual plan of
reorganization, the Debtor will seek to sell substantially all of
its assets pursuant to Sec. 363 according to these milestones:

     January 6, 2012      The Debtor will obtain from the Court
                          an order authorizing the retention of a
                          broker for the purpose of coordinating
                          and assisting with the Sale Process.

     March 6, 2012        The Debtor will file a sale and bid
                          procedures motion.

     March 20, 2012       The Debtor will obtain entry from the
                          Bankruptcy Court of an order approving
                          bid procedures, which order shall
                          authorize (1) credit bids by the Lender
                          on account of both the Pre-Petition
                          Indebtedness and the DIP Facility; (2)
                          deem the Lender a "Qualified Bidder";
                          and (3) the solicitation of bids for the
                          sale of the Debtor's assets and which
                          shall set a deadline to receive bids
                          related to such sale of no later than
                          April 30, 2012.

     May 10, 2012         The Debtor will conduct any auction.

     May 30, 2012         The Debtor will obtain entry of an
                          order approving the sale and proposed
                          Asset Purchase Agreement.

     June 1, 2012         The Debtor will close the sale.

The use of Cash Collateral will terminate effective on the earlier
to occur of (a) receipt by the Debtor of written notice from the
Lender of the occurrence and continuance of an Event of Default;
and (b) 11:59 p.m. (prevailing Eastern time) on June 2, 2012.
Upon the Termination Date, Regions may move for the expedited
appointment of a Chapter 11 Trustee.

Regions also consents to the Debtor paying its principal
shareholder and CEO, Curt Jones, a gross monthly salary of no
greater than $15,000 per month.

DPL INC: Moody's Lowers Unsecured Rating to 'Ba1'
------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded DPL Inc.'s (DPL) unsecured
rating to Ba1 from Baa1 and downgraded Dayton Power & Light
Company's (DP&L) Issuer Rating to Baa2 from A2 and First Mortgage
Bond rating to A3 from Aa3 following the closing of The AES
Corporation's (AES) acquisition of DPL and its subsidiaries. The
rating outlook for DPL and DP&L is stable.

Moody's also assigned a Ba1 senior unsecured rating to Dolphin Sub
II, Inc. (Dolphin), a wholly owned special purpose subsidiary of
AES, which had previously raised funds via a $1.25 billion
unsecured notes issuance to fund the acquisition. Upon the release
of such funds from a single purpose escrow account established at
the time of issuance, DPL assumed the obligations under such
senior notes.

RATINGS RATIONALE

"The downgrades reflect the significantly increased credit risk of
the utility and its parent due to their acquisition by AES, a
lower rated entity, as well as the significant incremental parent
level debt added to completed the transaction," said Moody's
Analyst Mitchell Moss. "The higher leverage at the parent
pressures consolidated credit metrics cash flow for debt service
and other parent level requirements.."

DPL's Ba1 senior unsecured rating is driven by the increase in
parent leverage and the resulting negative impact on the company's
credit profile. Including the debt originally issued by Dolphin,
DPL's parent debt accounts for about 65% of consolidated debt. As
a result, DPL's consolidated credit metrics are expected to
decline substantially. Specifically, key consolidated financial
metrics of cash from operations before changes in working capital
to debt and interest coverage are expected to weaken to below 13%
and 3.3x, respectively, during the first few years following the
acquisition. Moody's views the consolidated entity as marginally
investment grade; however, the parent's Ba1 rating also factors in
the degree of structural subordination that exists for parent
level creditors. In addition, DPL's anticipated dividend payout to
AES is expected to reduce consolidated retained cash flow and some
of its financial flexibility.

The Ba1 rating also reflects an overall increase in the company's
business risk since the AES parent has a much weaker credit
profile and DPL will have an increasing dependence on cash flow
generated from its unregulated operations, primarily its retail
energy marketing business.

DP&L's Issuer Rating reflects the increased credit risk at the
utility due to the parent's added leverage and the higher need for
dividends from the utility for debt service with minimal ring-
fencing provisions in place. The rating also reflects DP&L's
reasonably supportive regulatory framework in Ohio although the
utility has some uncertainty with its upcoming Electric Security
Plan (ESP) rate filing in 2012. Moody's anticipates that the
supportive regulatory framework, comparable to other Ohio
utilities, will continue. Standalone credit metrics are expected
to be strong for the rating but are constrained by the substantial
level of DPL holding company debt.

DPL's and DP&L's stable outlook reflects the supportive regulatory
framework in place for the utility and assumes a reasonable
outcome in the 2012 ESP filing as well as moderately increasing
reliance on unregulated cash flows.

In light of the rating action, limited prospects exists for DPL
and DP&L to be upgraded. Longer-term, the rating for DPL and DP&L
could be upgraded should DPL significantly reduce the level of
parent company debt.

The rating for DPL and DP&L could be downgraded if DPL's credit
metrics weaken such that cash flow to debt falls below 10% or if
it increases its exposure to unregulated operations.

The principal methodology used in this rating was Regulated
Electric and Gas Utilities published in August 2009.


ENERGY CONVERSION: Names New CEO, Taps Restructuring Chief
----------------------------------------------------------
Energy Conversion Devices Inc. has named a pair of executives to
lead the struggling solar products company's operations and
restructuring efforts.

The Company announced Monday that its Board of Directors has
appointed Julian Hawkins as Chief Executive Officer and President
and a member of the Board of Directors, effective December 5,
2011.  In addition, the Board has appointed Jay Knoll as Executive
Vice President and Chief Restructuring Officer and a member of the
Board of Directors effective December 5, 2011.

Energy Conversion Devices, through its United Solar Ovonic (USO)
subsidiary, is engaged in building-integrated and rooftop
photovoltaics (PV).  The Company manufactures, sells and installs
thin-film solar laminates that convert sunlight to clean,
renewable energy using technology.

The Company reported a net loss of $56.1 million on $22.0 million
of revenue for three months ended Sept. 30, 2011, compared with a
net loss of $13.5 million on $53.3 million of revenue in the same
period in 2010.

The balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2011, showed $318.4 million in
assets and $56.6 million in current liabilities and $292.5 million
in long term liabilities.  The long-term debt includes the $235.8
million owing under the $316.3 million of Convertible Senior Notes
issued in 2008 and due June 15, 2013.

In its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2011, Energy
COnversion disclosed, "The Company may consider various financing
or refinancing options for the Notes before June 15, 2013. If
these options are not successful, there is no assurance that
sufficient cash will be generated from operations to enable the
Company to repay this debt when it comes due.  In connection with
the foregoing, we have begun discussions with representatives of
an informal group of noteholders regarding our repositioning
efforts and to explore the group's interest in restructuring our
obligations under the Notes. Our discussions are at a preliminary
stage.  If we are unable to reach an accord with the noteholders
or execute sufficiently on one or more of the strategies that we
are considering to attract required investment, results of
operations, financial condition and cash flows could be materially
adversely affected and we may choose to seek reorganization under
the U.S. Bankruptcy Code."

EXIDE TECHNOLOGIES: Wants Until Jan. 31 to Object to Claims
-----------------------------------------------------------
Exide Technologies sought and obtained approval from the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware to extend the
deadline for filing objections to claims to January 31, 2012.

The extension will give Exide enough time to review and resolve
the approximately 33 remaining claims, according to Bruce
Grohsgal, Esq., at Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP, in
Wilmington, Delaware.

More than 6,100 proofs of claim were filed against Exide in the
total sum of approximately $4.4 billion.  These do not include
about 1,100 unliquidated claims, according to court papers.

As of October 28, 2011, about 6,079 claims had been resolved,
reducing the total amount of outstanding claims by more than $4.2
billion.  Exide has already completed 26 quarterly distributions
to creditors under its confirmed Joint Plan of Reorganization,
consisting of distributions on approximately 2,625 claims in the
aggregate amount of approximately $1.76 billion.

Since July 31, 2011, Exide has reached a number of settlements,
has filed individual objections to claims, and has generally made
considerable advancements with respect to the remaining, more
complex claims, according to Mr. Grohsgal.

EXIDE TECHNOLOGIES: MRE Wants $308K Claim Allowed
-------------------------------------------------
Material Recovery Enterprises PRP Group asks the bankruptcy court
to allow its claims against Exide Technologies in the full amount
of $308,000.

The move comes after Exide proposed to reduce and allow Claim
Nos. 2936, 3028 and 5537 as a general unsecured, non-priority
Class P4-A claim for $195,075.  The company also proposed to
distribute the allowed claim in stock in accordance with its
restructuring plan.

James Yoder, Esq., at White and Williams LLP, in Wilmington,
Delaware, says MRE Group has already filed supporting evidence
that Exide owes it $308,000.

"[Exide] makes no effort to controvert or refute that evidence,
it simply ignores it," Mr. Yoder says in court papers.

MRE Group filed the claims to recover between $250,000 and
$300,000 on account of the costs it allegedly incurred in the
remediation of an Exide site in Ovalo, Texas.

FILENE'S BASEMENT: Syms Creditors Seek to Disband Equity Committee
------------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that the unsecured creditors' committee for discount
retailers Syms Corp. and subsidiary Filene's Basement LLC filed
papers last week to disband the newly formed official committee
representing shareholders.  The U.S. Trustee formed the equity
committee based on Syms' declaration at the outset of the
Chapter 11 case that the company is solvent, with money to be left
over for distribution to shareholders.

According to the report, the Creditors Committee contends there
need be no committee because Chief Executive Marcy Syms, who owns
more than 54% of the stock, by herself adequately represents
interests of shareholders.  Short of disbanding the equity
committee, the creditors' panel wants the bankruptcy judge at a
Dec. 14 hearing to cap the equity panel's fees and expenses at
$500,000.

Although Syms stock closed Nov. 28 at $9.51, up 11 cents a share
in over-the-counter trading, David Tawil, co-founder and portfolio
manager from Maglan Capital, believes the stock price is too high.
Mr. Tawil, who said in an interview that he shorted Syms stock,
estimates the liquidation will generate between $2.98 and $8.40 a
share, with a midpoint recovery of $5.69 a share.

Bloomberg relates that Mr. Tawil estimates Syms' real estate will
generate between $135 million and $160 million while claims for
termination of leases will range between $45 million and
$25 million.  He's projecting a recovery of $21.9 million to
$24.3 million on the inventory.

Massachusetts-based Filene's Basement, also called The Basement,
is the oldest off-price retailer in the United States.  The

distinctive, low-technology automatic markdown system.

Filene's Basement first filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection
in August 1999.  Filene's Basement was bought by a predecessor of
Retail Ventures, Inc., the following year.  Retail Ventures in
April 2009 transferred the unit to Buxbaum.

Filene's Basement, Inc. and its affiliates filed for Chapter 22
(Bankr. D. Del. Case No. 09-11525) on May 4, 2009, represented by
lawyers at Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP.  Epiq Bankruptcy
Solutions serves as claims and notice agent.  The Debtors
estimated $50 million to $100 million in assets and $100 million
to $500 million in debts.

The 2009 Debtor was formally renamed FB Liquidating Estate,
following the sale of all of its assets to Syms Corp. in June
2009.

Pursuant to the Liquidating Plan confirmed in January 2010,
secured creditors in the Chapter 11 case have been paid in full,
and holders of priority, administrative and convenience class
claims have received 100% of their allowed claims.  As reported by
the Troubled Company Reporter on Dec. 20, 2010, Alan Cohen,
Chairman of Abacus Advisors LLC and Chief Restructuring Officer
for FB Liquidating Estate disclosed that a second distribution of
dividend checks to Filene's unsecured creditors amounting to 12.5%
of approved claims has been made, bringing the cumulative
distributions on unsecured claims to 62.5%.

On Nov. 2, 2011, Syms Corp. placed itself, Filene's Basement and
two other units in Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. D. Del. Case Nos.
11-13511 to 11-13514) after a failed bid to sell the business.
The two units are Syms Clothing Inc. and Syms Advertising Inc.

Arps Slate Meagher & Flom LLP serve as the Debtors' counsel.  The
Debtors tapped Rothschild Inc. as investment banker and Cushman
and Wakefield Securities, Inc., as real estate financial advisors.

Syms shuttered its namesake and Filene's Basement outlets upon the
bankruptcy filing and tapped a joint venture of Gordon Brothers
Retail Partners LLC and Hilco Merchant Resources LLC to run the
going-out-of-business sales.  The sale may continue until Jan. 31,
2012.  The 15 owned stores will be sold after the GOB sales.

Filene's Basement estimated $1 million to $10 million in assets
and $50 million to $100 million in debts.  The petitions were
signed by Gary Binkoski, authorized representative of Filene's
Basement.

The official committee of unsecured creditors appointed in the
2011 case has retained Hahn & Hessen LLP as legal counsel.

Holders of equity in Syms Corp. pushed for an official
shareholders' committee and separation of the Syms and Filene's
Basement bankruptcy estates.

FILENE'S BASEMENT: Hilco to Auction Intellectual Property Assets
----------------------------------------------------------------
The trademarked Running of the Brides(R) name and Filene's
Basement(R) trade name are just two of many highly-valued
intellectual property assets slated to be sold at auction by Hilco
Streambank as part of the liquidation of bankrupt discount-
clothing retailers Syms Corp. (SYMS) and Filene's Basement, LLC.
Subject to approval by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, District of
Delaware (Wilmington), the yet-to-be-scheduled auction will also
include the Syms(R) trade name, various trade marks, Internet
URLs, websites and other assets.

The retention of Hilco Streambank to conduct the auction is
expected to be filed with the Court this week. Hilco Streambank
has already begun marketing the assets and is seeking a stalking
horse bidder.  Bids will be considered for the complete portfolio
or individual brands.

"Even though most Filene's Basement and Syms stores are located
east of the Mississippi, we regard both brands as truly national
in scope," said Jack Hazan, Executive Vice President with Hilco
Streambank.  "Who hasn't seen Running of the Brides(R) news
stories on the Today Show, Good Morning America or The Early Show?
It has become a piece of Americana.  Additionally, the Syms brand
has become synonymous with first quality men's suits as well as
woman's and children's apparel through their famous slogan 'An
educated consumer is our best customer.(R)'"

Mr. Hazan added, "It is no surprise that we have already received
expressions of interest in the IP from apparel retailers and
investment firms specializing in brand revitalization and
management.  We fully expect a robust auction."

On Wednesday, November 16, going-out-of-business sales began at 19
Syms, 14 Filene's Basement and 6 combined store locations in 12
states and the District of Columbia.  Discounts up to 30% off the
lowest ticketed price were being offered on over $100 million
worth of inventory, including men's and women's business attire,
sportswear, outerwear and children's apparel, many carrying famous
name designer labels.  Sales are expected to run through the
holiday season.

HOLDINGS OF EVANS: Hearing on Further Cash Access on Dec. 2
-----------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Georgia has
continued until Dec. 2, 2011, at 10:00 a.m., the hearing to
consider Holdings of Evans, LLC's motion to use cash collateral.

Previously, the Court authorized, on an interim basis, the Debtor
to use the cash collateral which 2010-1 SFG Venture LLC asserts an
interest.

The Debtor owns an improved real property located at 156 Classic
Road in Athens, Georgia, and is engaged in the business of
operating a hotel commonly known as Candlewood Suites.

The Debtor is obligated to SFG, as assignee, under a Promissory
Note dated Nov. 14, 2008, in the original principal amount of
$6,196,200.  As of the Petition Date, SFG asserts that the debt
owed ia at least $5,316,441, exclusive of accruing interest, fees,
costs and other charges as may be allowed under the Bankruptcy
Code.

The Debtor will at all times (a) sequester, segregate, and account
for all cash collateral that comes into its possession, custody of
control; (b) keep and provide on a periodic basis records
reasonably sufficient for SFG to determine the status of cash
collateral collections and expenditures; (c) provide to SFG copies
of the monthly operating reports filed with the Court and with the
Office of the U.S. Trustee and provide SFG with copies of any and
all pleadings, documents and correspondence filed with the Court.

                    U.S. Trustee's Objection

Donald F. Walton, the U.S. Trustee for Region 21, objected to
SFG's proposed order granting SFG a superpriority administrative
claim to the extent there is a failure of adequate protection.
SFG's proposed order provides that the 11 U.S.C. Sec. 507(b) claim
will have priority over costs of estate administration under
Section 726 if the case is subsequently converted to Chapter 7.

The U.S. Trustee states that a Chapter 7 trustee's costs of
administration pursuant to Section 726(b) are superior to a
secured creditor's Section 507(b) claim.  Accordingly, any
proposed order must provide that SFG's Section 507(b) claim is
subordinate to the Chapter 7 trustee's costs of estate
administration in the event that the case is subsequently
converted to Chapter 7.

The petition was signed by GB Sharma, managing member.


HOLDINGS OF EVANS: Wants to Obtain $100,000 of DIP Financing
------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Georgia
will convene a hearing on Dec. 2, 2011, at 10:00 a.m., to consider
Holdings of Evans, LLC's motion to obtain financing.

On Nov. 15, 2011, the Debtor asked for authorization to obtain
postpetition financing from G.B. Sharma of up to $100,000.  G.B.
Sharma is the president and CEO of the Debtor.

The Debtor related that its inability to reach a consensual
agreement regarding the use of 2010-1 SFG Venture, LLC's cash
collateral, and the conditions required for the use of cash
collateral upon which SFG insists had made circumstances unlikely
that G.B. Dharma would provide the necessary financing.

In this regard, Mr. Sharma proposed to provide credit pursuant to
these terms:

   1. In lieu of seeking the use the cash collateral of SFG, the
Debtor seeks to utilize the financing offered by G.B. Sharma to
pay SFG the value of its cash collateral as of the Petition Date
and to provide additional financing as needed for the Debtor's
operations.

   2. In exchange Mr. Sharma seeks first in priority lien against
the cash collateral assets -- rents, rent equivalents, monies
payable as damages or in lieu rent or rent equivalents, accounts,
cash, cash deposits and all other collateral of the Debtor.  SFG
would retain its first priority lien as to all other assets.

   3. As of the Petition Date, the cash collateral of SFG
consisted of the Bank of America checking account with a balance
of $20,631, a checking account at Vista Bank with a balance of
$1,523, and accounts receivable of $28,076.

   4. Within 10 days of the entry of the order approving the
financing arrangements and grant of a postpetition superpriority
lien to the extent of the funds advanced to the Debtor, Mr. Sharma
will pay to SFG the value of cash deposits of $22,156; all
prepetition accounts receivables that have been collected
postpetition; all prepetition receivable collected subsequent to
entry of the order will be sequestered in a separate account and
paid to SFG within 10 days of collection.

   5. Payments will extinguish SFG's lien in the cash collateral.

First priority secured creditor SFG is asking the Court to deny
the Debtor's motion, stating that the Debtor failed to site any
legal authority in support of extinguishing SFG's lien in the
postpetition collateral and has failed to sufficiently plead or
provide any evidence that the Debtor has even attempted to obtain
credit on an unsecured basis from other sources.  In addition, the
Debtor cannot provide SFG with adequate protection of its interest
in postpetition cash collateral, other than turning over the cash
collateral to SFG, because SFG already has a first priority lien
on all postpetition cash collateral.

JEFFERSON COUNTY: Sheriff Seeks Protection From Lawsuits
--------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that the sheriff of Jefferson County, Alabama, filed
papers Nov. 28 asking the bankruptcy judge to rule on whether the
Chapter 9 bankruptcy filing automatically halts lawsuits against
the sheriff and his deputies.

According to the report, the sheriff explained that his office has
no insurance, leaving the county exposed to paying judgments and
thus affecting the county's financial condition.  On the question
of whether the sheriff is protected by the county's automatic
stay, court papers say the sheriff is a state official, although
funding comes from the county.  The office is not a department of
the county, nor are the sheriff and his deputies county employees.

                    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.  Lawyers
at Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP and Klee, Tuchin, Bogdanoff &
Stern LLP, led by Kenneth Klee, represent the Debtor as counsel.
Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC serves as claims and noticing
agent.  Jefferson estimated more than $1 billion in assets.  The
petition was signed by David Carrington, president.


JEFFERSON COUNTY: Bankruptcy to Test Muni-Bond Assumptions
----------------------------------------------------------
Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review reports that Jefferson County,
Ala., didn't roil the $2.9 trillion municipal bond market when it
filed the largest-ever municipal bankruptcy, but it is likely to
stir up things when a U.S. Bankruptcy Court judge decides how to
treat its debt obligations.

KINGSBURY CORP: Has Final Nod to Continue Borrowing Until Dec. 30
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of New Hampshire has
granted, on a final basis, the motion of Kingsbury Corporation for
authorization to obtain postpetition financing from Diamond
Business Credit, LLC.  The order is deemed effective as of
Oct. 31, 2011.  Debtor's authority to continue borrowing and using
cash collateral will expire on Dec. 30, 2011, unless otherwise
ordered by the Bankruptcy Court.

The Debtor and Diamond are authorized to continue the transactions
set forth in the Diamond Loan Documents, in accordance with said
documents and with the parties' usual practices as they existed
prior to the Petition Date (including, without limitation, monthly
payment of interest and monthly fees due under the Diamond Loan
Documents on Diamond's prepetition loans and DIP loans).  The
Debtor is authorized to borrow funds, and to make expenditures,
substantially as set forth in a budget.

Diamond will have a valid, perfected, first-priority lien on all
of the Debtor's accounts, inventory and intellectual property in
order to secure the Debtor's obligations with respect to post-
petition advances made by Diamond pursuant to the Diamond Loan
Documents, provided, however, that the Committee may, within 30
days from the entry of this Order, challenge the validity,
perfection, or priority of Diamond's security interest in
Diamond's prepetition collateral.

As adequate protection of its interests in property of the estate,
to, among other things, continue to and further secure Diamond's
pre-petition loans and its DIP Loan the Court authorizes the
Debtor to grant a security interest to Diamond in the items of
collateral identified in the Diamond Loan Documents, with the
Diamond Replacement Lien having the same priority as the security
interests granted to Diamond by the Debtor prior to the Petition
Date.  In addition, if Diamond becomes entitled to an allowable
claim under 11 U.S.C. Section 507(a)(2), then Diamond will have a
claim under 11 U.S.C. Section 507(b), but only to the extent that
the Diamond Replacement Lien is not adequate to protect Diamond's
interest in the pre-petition collateral from a diminution in
value.

A copy of the Final Order is available for free at:

        http://bankrupt.com/misc/kingsburycorp.dkt188.pdf

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Oct. 20, 2011, the
Debtor required the proposed postpetition financing in order to
rehire employees and purchase supplies necessary to restart its
operations and meet other critical postpetition obligations in the
ordinary course.  The proceeds of the DIP Financing will be used
to pay the expenses set forth in a Budget, such as payroll, vendor
and supplier costs, and other expenses necessary to restart and
maintain operations.  Absent this relief, the Debtor will be
forced to liquidate its assets quickly, to the substantial
detriment of its creditors.  The DIP Financing is necessary to
preserve, protect and maintain the going concern value of the
Debtor's assets and maximize the value of its estate.

According to Jennifer Rood, Esq., at Berstein, Shur, Sawyer &
Nelson, the Debtor is unable to obtain unsecured credit sufficient
to operate or reorganize its business by providing an
administrative expense claim.  The DIP Financing was obtained on
the most favorable terms available to the Debtor following
discussions with various lending sources.  Under existing time
constraints and conditions, and considering the limited available
collateral of the Debtor, alternative financing was not and is not
available at all, or on a timely basis.

Ms. Rood informed the Court that the Debtor does not have an
alternative source of working capital with which to continue its
operations and to pay its ordinary course obligations, as those
owed to suppliers, employees, insurers, and taxing authorities.
In order for the Debtor to continue operating its business during
the case, the Debtor needs a source of working capital.

KT SPEARS: Court Slates Dec. 12 Plan Confirmation Hearing
---------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of South Carolina has
approved the amended disclosure statement, as filed on Nov. 3,
2011, for the amended plan filed by KT Spears Creek, LLC, dated
Nov. 3, 2011.

The Court fixed Dec. 5, 2011, as the last day for filing ballots
accepting or rejecting the plan.

The hearing on the confirmation of the plan will be held on
Dec. 12, 2011 at 1:30 p.m.

The Debtor proposes to reorganize its debts by reducing its total
debt, through the sale and development of the two unimproved
parcels, and the marketing and sale of the Greenhill Apartment
Complex.  The proceeds from the sale of the property will be used
to repay the Debtor's creditors.

A copy of the Amended Disclosure Statement is available for free
at http://bankrupt.com/misc/ktspears.dkt136.pdf

As reported in the TCR on Sept. 26, 2011, the Plan designates 7
Classes of Claims and Interests.

Administrative Claims in Class 4 and Priority Claims in Class 5
are unimpaired under the Plan.

                Class 1. Secured Claim of RBC Bank

RBC asserts a first priority secured claim of $22,494,711 on the
Debtor's 240 unit apartment complex as of the Petition Date.
The Debtor proposes to retain the 240-unit Greenhill Parish
Apartment Complex for a period of 2 years, during which the Debtor
will attempt to market the property and sell it for the benefit of
RBC Bank, or alternatively, refinance the loan with another
lender.

During the marketing period, the Debtor will continue to employ
Greystar as its property management company.  Greystar will use
the funds received from the property rents to cover its costs and
expenditures as the property manager.  Any funds received in
excess of the Greystar operating costs will be used to make
interest payments on the RBC debt.

The Debtor is proposing that the outstanding balance due to RBC
Bank be restructured and the excess funds be used to make payments
related to that balance.  The note will accrue interest at 4%.
The revised note will pay RBC Bank 4% monthly interest over a two
(2) year term and any funds received in excess of the interest
will go to pay principal.

           Class 2. Secured Claim of Plantation Federal

With respect to the Debtor's 66-acre raw land which is located
close to the Debtor's Greenhill Parish Apartments, first mortgage
holder Plantation Federal has agreed to give the Debtor 18 months
to market and sell the property, or market and develop the
property.

This agreement, which has not been finalized, calls for the Debtor
to meet certain milestones to stay in compliance with the
Plantation Settlement.  The Debtor will have until March 15, 2012,
to sell the first $1,000,000 of Plantation Federal's collateral or
have a ready, willing and able purchaser of property that will net
Plantation Federal that amount of money.

If the Debtor meets this first milestone, the Debtor will have
until Sept. 15, 2012, to sell or have ready and willing buyers of
$1,000,000 net from the collateral.

If the Debtor meets this second milestone, the Debtor will have
until March 15, 2013, to dispose of all Plantation Federal
property or have a ready and willing buyer as defined by the
Plantation Settlement.

The Debtor believes that even after the sale of all of Plantation
Federal's collateral, a surplus of funds will be available to pay
to the unsecured creditors in Class 6, even after paying all Class
4 and 5 creditors.

             Class 3. Secured Claim of First Palmetto

First Palmetto is the mortgage holder of the Two Notch Road
Frontage that is subject to a condemnation suit by the local
county government to convert part of the property into a turn lane
to handle increased traffic.  Debtor proposes to assist First
Palmetto in addressing this condemnation suit so that First
Palmetto may achieve a favorable result.  Any funds received from
the condemnation suit will be paid to First Palmetto, until First
Palmetto is paid in full.

First Palmetto has agreed to allow the Debtor 10 months to market
and sell the property in order to repay the debt and generate
funds in excess of the outstanding obligations.  In exchange for
this time, the Debtor has agreed to make adequate protection
payments monthly to First Palmetto in the amount of $5,000.

               Class 6. General Unsecured Creditors

No payment to the unsecured creditors will be made until such time
as the Debtor has sold assets to generate funds in excess of the
Secured Claims, the Administrative Claims, and the Priority
Unsecured Claims in Classes 1-5.  The funds will only be paid pro
rata after the Debtor has finished its Claims objections,
but distributions to Class 6 creditors will only be made after the
payment of all Claims in Class 5.  The Debtor believes significant
equity exists in the properties that would allow it to
make a distribution to the Unsecured Creditors in Class 6.

                    Class 7. Equity Interests

Class 7 is comprised of the Equity Interests of Kyle Tauch, whose
Equity Interests and any Claims he may hold will be treated as
subordinate to all other Claims against the Estate.

Holders of Equity Interests will receive a pro rata share of
distributions based upon the Equity Interests held as of the date
of confirmation, only after payment in full of Allowed Claims in
all prior Classes (Classes 1-6).  As of the Effective Date, all
Equity Interests will be deemed only to represent the right to
receive distributions hereunder, and holders of Equity Interests
will be enjoined from transferring their Equity Interests or from
taking other action that may adversely impact the Estate,
including the taking of a worthless stock deduction.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Bankruptcy Plan Supported by 95% of Creditors
--------------------------------------------------------------
In documents filed in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of New York, Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. and its
affiliated debtors reported overwhelming support among every class
of creditors eligible to vote for their Third Amended Joint
Chapter 11 Plan.  In total, the Plan and related settlements are
supported by 95% of creditors in number and 98% of creditors in
amount of those creditors who have voted.  Every single class
voted to accept the Plan.  A confirmation hearing is scheduled to
begin on Dec. 6, 2011 before Judge James M. Peck.

The Plan is supported by the Creditors' Committee; members of the
ad hoc group of senior bondholders; virtually all of the
proponents of the non-consolidation chapter 11 plan; numerous
holders of notes issued by Lehman Brothers Treasury Co. B.V., who
asserted substantial guarantee claims against LBHI; eight foreign
administrators managing 87 foreign affiliates; and most other
significant creditors.

In addition, Lehman said it has resolved the majority of the Plan
objections and informal comments through good-faith negotiations
and the addition of certain non-material amendments of the Plan.

Bryan Marsal, LBHI's Chief Executive Officer, said: "It has taken
Herculean effort by many people to reach this point.  The
overwhelming support the Plan has received demonstrates that,
while reaching a mutual agreement among these disparate parties
was complex and challenging, it was worth the effort and was
clearly the right path to take."

Lori Fife, one of Lehman's lead bankruptcy attorneys, said: "To
approach confirmation with virtually unanimous support of
creditors who asserted claims in the amount of $450 billion is
unprecedented.  The Global Settlements should avoid contentious
litigation and allow for accelerated distributions to creditors."

The Lehman bankruptcy is the largest and most complex in history.
Before the bankruptcy, Lehman Brothers had assets of $639 billion
on its balance sheet and operated as a truly global firm with over
7,000 legal entities in more than 40 countries. Lehman's
insolvency has resulted in over 75 separate and distinct
bankruptcy proceedings, with the non-United States proceedings
managed by a number of court appointed administrators,
liquidators, trustees, receivers, and like office holders.

LBHI and its affiliated chapter 11 debtors, through their
restructuring advisers at Alvarez & Marsal and their attorneys at
Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP, filed the Third Amended Joint Chapter
11 Plan and Disclosure Statement with the United States Bankruptcy
Court for the Southern District of New York.

Lehman Brothers filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Sept. 15, 2008
(Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 08-13555).  Lehman's bankruptcy
petition disclosed US$639 billion in assets and US$613 billion in
debts, effectively making the firm's bankruptcy filing the
largest in U.S. history.  Several other affiliates followed

Somerset LLC, sought for bankruptcy protection in December 2009
or more than a year after LBHI and its other affiliates filed
their bankruptcy cases.

No. 08-CIV-8119 (GEL)).  James W. Giddens has been appointed as
trustee for the SIPA liquidation of the business of LBI.

The Bankruptcy Court has approved Barclays Bank Plc's purchase
of Lehman Brothers' North American investment banking and
capital markets operations and supporting infrastructure for
US$1.75 billion.  Nomura Holdings Inc., the largest brokerage
house in Japan, purchased LBHI's operations in Europe for US$2
plus the retention of most of employees.  Nomura also bought
Lehman's operations in the Asia Pacific for US$225 million.

               International Operations Collapse

LOS ANGELES DODGERS: Fights With Fox About Hearing Agenda
---------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Los Angeles Dodgers baseball club and Fox
Entertainment Group Inc. can't even agree about the agenda for the
hearing Nov. 29, in bankruptcy court.  The team believes the
bankruptcy judge will hold a full-blown hearing and decide if the
existing broadcasting agreement with Fox can be overridden by the
early solicitation of bids for the right to carry Dodgers games
beginning with the 2014 season.

According to the report, Fox contends that the hearing is a "mere
status conference," to use the team's words from a court filing.
The Dodgers reported in a court filing that the official
creditors' committee does not object to an extension of the club's
exclusive right to propose a Chapter 11 plan.  The committee,
however, wants exclusivity pushed out only until Jan. 31, not the
full six months the Dodgers are seeking.

The report relates that the Dodgers contend that Fox made
"completely irrelevant" arguments against putting broadcasting
rights up for auction next year. The team contends Fox made
"personal attacks" on owner Frank McCourt "in desperation."
The baseball club argues that Fox's opposition to bidding for
telecasting rights is designed to drive down the price.  Where Fox
contends it must know details of the settlement between the team
and the commissioner of Major League Baseball, the Dodgers contend
that the settlement is irrelevant to whether the bankruptcy court
has power to hold an auction for television rights.  Although the
Dodgers announced reaching agreement with the commissioner early
this month to allow a sale of the entire team, the terms of the
agreement remain secret.

                  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.


LUIS SOTO RIOS: 1st Cir. Affirms Ruling Over Mortgages
------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit affirmed decisions
by the lower federal courts rejecting the efforts of Luis Soto-
Rios and Brenda Tosado-Arbelo to avoid three mortgages, and to
prevent any post-petition actions that would perfect them.

In 2004 and 2005, the debtors executed the three mortgage deeds to
secure two loans.  The mortgagee Banco Popular De Puerto Rico, in
turn, presented the documents for recording to the Registry of the
Property for Puerto Rico.  Two deeds were presented in October
2004, and the third 10 months later in 2005.  Due to an
administrative backlog, however, the three presented mortgage
deeds were still pending recordation when the debtors filed for
bankruptcy nearly three years later.

During the bankruptcy proceedings, Banco Popular filed a secured
proof of claim regarding the loan debts putatively secured by the
three mortgage deeds. In response, the debtors filed an adversary
proceeding asserting their right to avoid the mortgages under
certain provisions of the Bankruptcy Code, including the automatic
stay, the "strong arm" power and the avoidance of preferential
transfers.  After an exchange of pleadings, the parties agreed
that the case could be resolved on summary judgment and
subsequently filed competing motions.  The bankruptcy court
granted Banco Popular's motion and dismissed the debtors'
adversary action.  In ruling that exceptions to the automatic stay
and strong arm power applied, 11 U.S.C. Sections 362(b)(3),
546(b)(1)(A), the court rejected the debtors' argument that, until
the deeds were fully recorded, Banco Popular lacked a pre-petition
property interest.  The bankruptcy court also ruled that the
debtors failed to establish the necessary elements of a
preferential transfer, 11 U.S.C. Sections 547(b), 547(e)(1)(A).
After an unsuccessful appeal to the district court, the debtors
elevated the matter to the Appeals Court.

The appellate case is LUIS A. SOTO-RIOS; BRENDA TOSADO-ARBELO,
Plaintiffs, Appellants, v. BANCO POPULAR DE PUERTO RICO,
Defendant, Appellee, No. 10-2270 (1st Cir.).  The panel consists
of Circuit Judges Kermit Victor Lipez, Kenneth Francis Ripple of
the Seventh Circuit, sitting by designation, and Jeffrey R.
Howard, who wrote the opinion.  A copy of the Appeals Court's Nov.
23, 2011 decision is available at http://is.gd/7lCrFKfrom

MATTRESS FIRM: Moody's Assigns 'B2' Corporate Family Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B2 corporate family rating
(CFR) and a speculative grade liquidity rating of SGL-2 to
Mattress Firm Holding Corporation (Mattress Firm), parent of
Mattress Holding Corp. The outlook is stable. In a separate
action, Moody's withdrew the B3 CFR and PDR of Mattress Holding
Corp. to reflect the consolidated entity's new reporting
structure. Mattress Holding Corp. is the sole operating entity of
Mattress Firm and the borrower under bank credit facilities which
are rated B1.

"The effective upgrade in the corporate family rating to B2
reflects the company's deleveraging as a result of its recent
IPO," said Moody's analyst Mariko Semetko. The upgrade also
recognizes the company's strong operating performance, driven by
solid comparable sales growth (averaging around 19% in the first
three quarters of 2011) and revenues from new store openings.
Moody's anticipates pro-forma debt/EBITDA to approximate 6.1x
(inclusive of Moody's standard analytical adjustment for operating
leases), based on operating performance for the twelve month
period ended August 2, 2011.

On November 23, 2011, Mattress Firm Holding Corporation completed
an initial public offering of its common stock. Proceeds of
approximately $98 million net of fees were used to repay about $85
million in unsecured debt ("2009 Loan Facility") and provide
working capital liquidity. Additionally, convertible and PIK notes
were converted to equity in conjunction with the offering,
resulting in approximately $180 million of total debt reduction
based on the debt balances reported as of August 2, 2011. Mattress
Holding Corp.'s $230 million term loan (rated B1) is the only
outstanding debt following the IPO. The company also has a $25
million revolver (rated B1) which is expected to remain undrawn
except for minor letters of credit uses.

RATINGS RATIONALE

The B2 corporate family rating reflects the company's high
financial leverage, its small scale and geographic footprint as a
regionally concentrated chain relative to globally rated
retailers, and its limited product diversification as a specialty
retailer. Its susceptibility to cyclical factors that impact
discretionary consumer spending is also a rating constraint. The
company's ongoing investments in new stores will limit free cash
flow available for meaningful debt reduction, accentuating the
importance of earnings growth for credit metric improvement. The
rating is supported by the company's good liquidity (as denoted in
the SGL-2) and its competitive position within its markets of
operation.

The stable outlook incorporates Moody's expectation for modest
credit metric improvements over the next 12 to 18 months despite
continued macroeconomic uncertainty. The outlook also reflects
Moody's expectations that Mattress Firm will continue to grow
earnings through new store expansion and comparable sales growth.

An upgrade is unlikely in the near term given the company's
limited track record as a publicly traded company, its small scale
and its high financial leverage. Moody's would consider an upgrade
with expectations for debt/EBITDA at 4.75x and EBITA/interest
expense sustained above 2.25x for a prolonged period.

Downward rating pressures will rise if macro economic factors and
consumer spending deteriorate such that same store sales or
margins decline. Ratings could be downgraded if debt/EBITDA was
sustained above 6.5x, EBITA/interest expense dropped below 1.25x,
or liquidity materially eroded.

Moody's took the following rating actions for Mattress Firm
Holding Corp.:

Corporate Family Rating assigned at B2

Probability of Default Rating assigned at B2

Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating assigned at SGL-2

Moody's took the following rating actions and modified LGD for
Mattress Holding Corp.:

$25 million senior secured revolving credit facility rating
affirmed at B1 (to LGD3, 38% from LGD2, 29%)

$230 million senior secured term loan rating affirmed at B1 (to
LGD3, 38% from LGD2, 29%)

Corporate Family Rating withdrawn at B3

Probability of Default Rating withdrawn at B3

The principal methodology used in rating Mattress Firm Holding
Corp. was the Global Retail Industry Methodology published in June
2011. Other methodologies used include Loss Given Default for
Speculative-Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada and

MF GLOBAL: CUSTOMERS' Plea for Commodity Brokers Committee Denied
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Martin Glenn denied David Rosen, Daniel Shak,
Gary Parziale, Michael Caponiti and David Kotz, commodities
customers of MF Global Inc.'s request for the appointment of an
official committee of commodity broker customers in MFGI's
liquidation proceeding under the Securities Investors Protection
Act.

On November 7, 2011, a group of commodity broker customers of MFGI
convened to form an ad hoc committee to protect their interests in
the SIPA Proceeding.  The ad hoc group includes 66 commodity
customers.

Andrew P. DeNatale, Esq., at Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP, in New
York -- adenatale@stroock.com -- argued that the appointment of an
official committee of commodity broker customers is necessary and
appropriate in this SIPA proceeding.  As reflected in the numerous
letters filed with the Court, customers are dependent upon a
prompt return of their customer property with which to continue
their businesses, he stressed.

Among other things, identification of the commodity customer
property estate, potential augmentation of that estate through
avoidance under Section 764 of the Bankruptcy Code, implementation
of regulations of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission
regarding the customer property estate and distribution of
customer property, which includes other property of the debtor in
the customer property estate to the extent there would be a
shortfall are all complicated issues where commodity customers
will benefit from a Customer Committee's participation and
oversight, Mr. DeNatale cited.

More importantly, the commodity broker customers have enormous
amounts of collateral frozen at MFGI, Mr. DeNatale stressed.  It
appears that approximately $5.4 billion of commodity customer
funds were required to be segregated by MFGI, and over $600
million of those funds is reported missing, he said.  Those funds
are the lifeblood of their businesses and must be returned to
their rightful owners in a prompt and fair manner, he emphasized.
Prompt distribution to these customers is critical to their
viability and thus safeguards the commodity future business as a
whole, he insisted.

While the Steering Committee does not question James W. Giddens,
the trustee for the liquidation of the business of MFGI under the
SIPA's diligence here, the oversight of a Customer Committee which
consists of business people cannot but help ensure the expeditious
resolution of the MFGI Proceeding, Mr. DeNatale averred.  Any
protracted delay could be disastrous to MFGI's commodity customers
and to the markets in which they trade, he maintained.

The Steering Committee further asked that the Customer Committee
be initially consist of Messrs. Rosen, et al.  The Steering
Committee also asked the Court to approve compensation of fees and
expenses of committee professionals as administrative expenses of
the commodity customer property estate.

Allowing the payment of fees and expenses of the Customer
Committee professionals would not only be permissible pursuant to
Section 105(a) of the Bankruptcy Code, it would be appropriate in
this case since these services are necessary and would provide a
clear benefit to MFGI's estate, Mr. DeNatale stated.

Mr. Rosen filed a declaration affirming the statements in the
Steering Committee's Motion.

In another request, the Commodity Customer Coalition asked the
U.S. Trustee for Region 2 to appoint a Customer Committee.

On November 17, 2011, representatives of the CCC met with the SIPA
Trustee and others in an effort to craft a unified approach to the
distribution of commodity customer funds to those whose funds have
been frozen in this proceeding.  Unfortunately no resolution was
reached and the CCC believes now, more than ever, that the Court
should direct the U.S. Trustee for Region 2 to appoint a committee
comprised of the various factions which comprise the commodities
industry and are creditors in the SIPA proceeding.

Counsel to the CCC, Deborah L. Thorne, Esq., at Barnes & Thornburg
LLP, in New York -- deborah.thorne@btlaw.com -- argued that the
appointment of a balanced and representative committee comprised
of the various commodity industry creditor parties in this case
will both aid the SIPA Trustee in his job but will also provide a
voice for commodity industry creditors who have been so greatly
impacted by the inability to gain access to their segregated
accounts.  There is no insurance for the commodity-related
interests as there are for the securities industry interests, she
said.  Thus, it is extremely important that the commodity industry
and customers have a voice, and that the process be as transparent
as possible, she insisted.

Virginia Power Energy Marketing Inc., Dominion Energy Marketing
Inc. and Virginia Electric and Power Company supported the
Steering Committee's Motion to the extent the Court ensures that
the customers appointed to the Customer Committee are
representative of each diversely situated group of MFGI customers.

                  SIPA Trustee, et al., Object

The SIPA Trustee and other oversight agencies believe that the
requests to form a Customer Committee or a creditors' committee in
MFGI's proceeding is not supported by the SIPA and other
bankruptcy rules.

On behalf of the SIPA Trustee, James B. Kobak, Esq., at Hughes
Hubbard & Reed LLP, in New York, argued that the Customers
improperly attempt to establish a Customer Committee to be paid
from MFGI's commodity customer property estate.  However, there is
no authority or precedent for the relief the Customers seek, he
pointed out.  "The establishment of a self-nominated committee of
commodity broker customers with self-selected counsel that is
unrepresentative of differently situated commodities claimants,
securities claimants, and other creditors, in the unorthodox
manner sought by the Customers, would only serve to cause a
duplication of efforts and a waste of customer assets in a
proceeding in which efficient administration and preservation of
customer assets is the paramount concern," he insisted.

The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors asserted that the
Customers' relief requires the Court to effectively rewrite
Section 705 of the Bankruptcy Code, which simply does not
authorize compensation for professionals to a committee from
estate resources in a Chapter 7 case.  The Creditors' Committee's
counsel, Martin J. Bienenstock, Esq., at Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP, in
New York, pointed out that the Customers cannot articulate a
single example how the SIPA Trustee, the Chapter 7 trustee, and
the Securities Investor Protection Corporation will fail to carry
out their statutory duties and protect their interests.

On behalf of the SIPC, Christopher H. LaRosa, Esq., in Washington,
D.C. -- clarosa@sipc.org -- insisted that appointment of a
Customer Committee is unnecessary in light of the oversight and
participation in this proceeding by the SIPC as well as the role
of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.  Less than three
weeks into the liquidation, the SIPA Trustee sought and obtained
permission to transfer in bulk approximately three million open
commodity contract positions and approximately $1.5 billion in
associated collateral, and more recently, approximately $520
million as to about 21,000 commodities customers of MFGI, he told
Judge Glenn.

Tracy Hope Davis, the U.S. Trustee for Region 2, as amicus curiae,
submitted to the Court separate comments on the motions filed by
the Steering Committee and the CCC.

In response to the Steering Committee's Motion, Brian S. Masumoto,
Esq., U.S. trial attorney, argued that court appointment of a
committee clearly conflicts with Section 705(a), which calls for
the election of a committee by creditors that would also be
eligible to vote in a trustee election.  He noted that the problem
with the proposed committee is that its membership is improperly
limited to customers holding commodities accounts at MFGI.
Moreover, a decision allowing Chapter 7 creditors' committee
professionals to be compensated
from the estate could lead to a significant increase in the number
of Chapter 7 creditors' committee elections, he stressed. Chapter
7
creditors' committees are very rare, he said.  At best, Chapter 7
estates should not be burdened with committee professionals,
particularly given the small dividends generally available to
creditors in those liquidations, he stated.

As to the CCC's Motion, Mr. Matsumoto clarified that U.S. Trustees
do not appoint committees in Chapter 7.  Rather, Section 705(a)
provides for the election of a committee of unsecured creditors at
the meeting held pursuant to Section 341(a) of the Bankruptcy
Code, he explained.

Bimbo Foods, Inc. and Bimbo Hungria Company asked the Court to
deny any payment of fees and expenses of the ad hoc customer
professionals as administrative expenses of the commodity customer
property estate.

                         *     *      *

In a memorandum of opinion explaining the Nov. 23 order, Judge
Glenn held that despite customers' frustration, the SIPA Trustee
has demonstrated that he is responsive to customers' concerns.

The bankruptcy judge determined that no authority exists for the
appointment of a Customer Committee.  In the absence of statutory
authority, the Court concluded that it does not have the power to
grant the sought relief.  "Even if the Court had the discretion to
authorize the appointment of an official committee in these
circumstances, I would not do so," Judge Glenn said.

The bankruptcy judge acknowledged that the concerns expressed by
customers in the MFGI Liquidation are real and substantial.  "The
collapse of MFGI has given rise to a commodities broker
liquidation of immense scope and complexity," Judge Glenn stated.
Indeed, the SIPA Trustee reported on November 22, 2011 that the
actual shortfall may be in excess of $1.2 billion.  Although SIPC
replaces missing stocks and other securities -- that is, "money,
stocks and other securities that are stolen by a broker or put at
risk when a brokerage fails for other reasons" -- where it is
possible to do so, the SIPC does not protect commodity futures
contracts, Judge Glenn noted.

The bankruptcy judge opined that the supposed benefits stated by
the Steering Committee are clearly the responsibility of the SIPA
Trustee with oversight by SIPC and the CFTC, subject to approval
of the Court.  There is no role to be played by an official
committee, according to Judge Glenn.

Even if the Court could authorize election or appointment of a
Customers Committee in MFGI's case, the Court could not authorize
compensation for the committee's professionals from estate
property.  In those Chapter 7 cases where a creditors' committee
is elected, Section 705 does not contemplate the payment of fees
and expenses of committee professionals as administrative
expenses, Judge Glenn stated.

"Mr. Giddens is a very experienced SIPA Trustee, represented by
very experienced counsel, with mandated oversight provided by
SIPC and the CFTC, and, of course, by the Court.  MFGI's customers
can continue to participate actively in this case, as they have to
date, with or without the assistance of counsel. There is no
demonstrated need or justification to saddle this already heavily
burdened estate with the expenses attendant to an official
committee," Judge Glenn opined.

Thus, the Steering Committee Motion (and other motions seeking
similar relief) is denied, the bankruptcy judge ruled.

MF GLOBAL: SIPA Trustee Wins Nod to Make $520MM Distribution
------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Martin Glenn authorized James W. Giddens, the trustee for
the liquidation of the business of MF Global Inc. under the
Securities Investor Protection Act, to return a 60% distribution
to former MFGI customers that had only cash in their accounts as
of October 31, 2011 to approximately 21,000 customers with a total
of more than $869 million in cash, worth $520 million.

The SIPA Trustee, in coordination with the U.S. Department of
Justice, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and other
regulators, and the Securities Investor Protection Corporation,
continues to conduct a thorough, deliberate, and independent
investigation of, among other things, the apparent shortfall in
property that MFGI should have segregated for its customers prior
to bankruptcy.

"The extent of the apparent shortfall is not known at this time,
but, aided by the guarantee of the CME, the SIPA Trustee has
determined that the extraordinary relief sought herein within
three
weeks of the filing date is prudent and consistent with the
purpose
of SIPA and the regulations of the CFTC to provide prompt but fair
treatment to customers to the extent possible," counsel to the
SIPA
Trustee, James B. Kobak, Jr., Esq., at Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP,
in New York, told Judge Glenn.  He added that the SIPA Trustee's
Motion complements the November 2 Bulk Transfer Order and the
expedited parallel claims process.

With respect to approximately 15,000 customers, the SIPA Trustee
determined that a cash transfer of approximately $520 million to
customers through one or more transferee futures commodity
merchants or FCMs is appropriate and would significantly advance
the equitable treatment of MFGI's former futures customers,
according to Mr. Kobak.  Approximately 6,000 other customers with
small accounts also may be accommodated by the transfer, he
related.  This figure represents a distribution of 60% of the
total
cash balances of the Cash-Only Customers, he said.

The distribution covered by the SIPA Trustee's Motion will be
based
upon the books and records of MFGI, with the reconciliation and
other information as the SIPA Trustee and his professionals deem
advisable, Mr. Kobak explained.  As part of the expedited claims
process, all former customers of MFGI will be asked to submit a
claim.  In compliance with the expedited claims process, the SIPA
Trustee will determine their final pro rata share of the customer
property -- and will true up any difference as between the net
equity of recipients and the amounts to be transferred, he stated.

The SIPA Trustee expects to be able to make one or more additional
interim distributions as part of the expedited claims process,
with
the goal of ensuring equal treatment of all of MFGI's customers in
advance of the final determination of the pro rata share to which
they are each entitled, Mr. Kobak disclosed.

The SIPA Trustee believes that the proposed distribution will not
result in over-payments, Mr. Kobak assured the Court.  The Chicago
Mercantile Exchange Group, Inc. has agreed to continue cooperating
in these transfers, including providing accountings and other
assistance already, he noted.  Indeed, the CME has proposed to
provide a $250,000,000 guarantee to the Debtor's estate to provide
security for the nonrecovery of potential overpayments, he stated.
The SIPA Trustee and CME continue to discuss the details of the
CME
Guarantee.  This constructive commitment from the CME has given
the
SIPA Trustee additional assurance that a distribution of this
magnitude is prudent and in the best interests of customers and
the
markets generally, he maintained.

Before entry of the order, the CFTC said it supports the SIPA
Trustee's Motion as it will put in place mechanisms for the prompt
initiation of the claims process for MFGI commodity customers and
for the transfer to accounts accessible to those customers of 60%
of funds now held in cash-only commodity accounts with MFGI.  The
CFTC added that it will continue to work diligently to identify
and
recover all MFGI commodity customer funds.

In a memorandum supporting the SIPA Trustee's Motion, the SIPC
stated that the SIPA Trustee's proposal to limit any distribution
to 60% of account property should protect against the risk that
any
distribution to a customer will exceed the amount to which that
customer is ultimately entitled in the liquidation as a result of
a
shortfall in customer property.  If made, the $250 million
Guarantee would provide additional protection against the
realization of that risk, the SIPC said.

However, certain MFGI customers objected to the SIPA Trustee's
proposal, arguing that selective distributions are inequitable and
inconsistent.

The MFGI customers contended that limiting the distribution to
Cash-Only Customers will not constitute a ratable distribution to
all customers.  Essentially, the SIPA Trustee's Motion would have
the unfortunate effect of furthering the disparate treatment among
former customers of MFGI that resulted from the previous
distribution by the SIPA Trustee, the MFGI Customers pointed out.

The MFGI customers also believe that the 60% distribution is
unjustifiably conservative.  They demanded that the distribution
should be among all accounts and all customer property held or
controlled by the SIPA Trustee and that a distribution of 85% or
greater is appropriate.

Yield Curve Trading, LLC, sought to amend the SIPA Trustee's
request so that the 60% distribution applies to cash held as of
the
filing of the Bulk Transfer Motion, rather than October 31, 2011.
Mirae Asset Securities Co. Ltd. objects insofar as the SIPA
Trustee
with respect to the remainder 40% of the Customer Cash proposes a
Trueing Up, whereby as a result of the claims process the SIPA
Trustee will determined the final pro rata share of the customer
property to true up any difference as between the net equity of
recipients.

The other objecting MFGI Customers are:

  * Lee B. Stern, Jeffrey Stern, Daniel Stern, Richard Stark,
    Transcend Investments LLC and Steven M. Abraham Revocable
    Trust.

  * Royce Corporation

  * Dearborn Capital Management LLC; Grant Park Fund LP;

    Pork, Inc.

  * The Liteanu Group.

Green Eco Investments SA joined in Dearborn, et al.'s objection.

                        *     *     *

Per the Nov. 17 Order, Judge Glenn ruled that the SIPA Trustee
will
use his best efforts to complete (a) the transfers and
distributions to qualified FCMs that have agreed to accept the
Customer Cash for the benefit of MFGI's commodities futures
customers and (b) the "trueing up" as described in the SIPA
Trustee's request.

The SIPA Trustee -- upon advice and approval of the SIPC -- will
seek and may use the assistance of the Chicago Mercantile
Exchange,
and other registered derivatives clearing organizations that agree
to facilitate the transfers, and the Facilitating DCOs will
cooperate in the transfers, including providing accountings and
other assistance already and continuing to do so.

The transfers may not be avoided under Section 764(b) of the
Bankruptcy Code.

The Facilitating DCOs and participating FCMs are authorized to
consummate the transfers to the Transferees, and to take all other
actions reasonably necessary in furtherance thereof to complete
the
transfers directed by the SIPA Trustee, and will have no liability
for any actions taken in furtherance of this order consistent with
and in accordance with applicable law.

The automatic stay is vacated to the extent necessary to allow the
Facilitating DCOs to take any of the actions.

Judge Glenn acknowledged that the completion of the transfers is a
necessary step to implement the MFGI Liquidation Order and the
purposes of the SIPA liquidation as described at the time of
execution of the MFGI Liquidation Order.

RWA Raiffeisen Ware Austria AG and its subsidiary Genol
Gesellschaft m.b.H. & Co KG filed with the Court a statement in
support of various motions and letters to extend transfers beyond
customers.

RWA believes that the transfer that is currently being processed
pursuant to the SIPA Trustee's Motion should also cover RWA's and
Genol's "cash only" accounts.  Otherwise the order granting the
Emergency Transfer Motion would perpetuate the preferential
treatment of CME customers who have already received 60% of their
collateral together with their open positions in the course of the
first "bulk transfer," RWA insists.

MF GLOBAL: SIPA Trustee to Pay Out All $3.7 Billion in His Control
------------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reported the trustee liquidating MF Global Inc., the commodities
broker, said his plans to distribute 60% of customers' collateral
will exhaust all of the $3.7 billion he brought under his control.
The trustee, James W. Giddens, said in a statement that the
shortfall in customers' collateral is $1.2 billion "or more."

The broker's trustee already transferred 14,500 accounts along
with
$1.5 billion in collateral.  He is now in process of distributing
$520 million in cash.  Giving 60% to customers with only cash in
23,300 accounts will consume the remaining $1.6 billion in the
trustee's control, according to his statement.

The brokerage trustee was given approval to return wire transfers
that were mistakenly sent to the firm after bankruptcy.  The
bankruptcy judge authorized Mr. Giddens to charge a fee of 1%, or
no more than $5,000, for each wire he sends back.

The CME Group Inc. futures exchange said it is increasing its
"financial guarantee" to the broker's trustee to $550 million from
$250 million. The additional funds, according to CME Group, will
allow the trustee to distribute 75 percent in December rather than
60 percent, enabling the trustee to distribute $4 billion of the
$5.5 billion owing to customers.

In the statement, CME Group said it's "confident" that reports of
the larger $1.2 billion shortfall are "incorrect."

In other developments, Jon S. Corzine, MF Global's former chairman
and chief executive officer, was called to testify in Congress
next
week.  He was also named as a defendant in a class action lawsuit.
Before joining MF Global, Corzine had been a U.S. senator from New
Jersey and the state's governor.

MF GLOBAL: SIPA Trustee Proposes Parallel Claims Processes
----------------------------------------------------------
James W. Giddens, the trustee for the liquidation of the business
of MF Global Inc., sought and obtained authority from Judge Glenn
to establish parallel claims processes for commodity futures
customer and securities customer claims.

The SIPA Trustee will follow the procedures set forth in the SIPA
for determining claims and making payments to securities
customers,
and, to the extent not inconsistent with the SIPA, will utilize
the
procedures prescribed in the Commodity Broker Liquidation
Provisions and the Part 190 Regulations for determining claims and
making distributions to commodity futures customers.  General
creditor claims will be treated in accordance with the Bankruptcy
Code and SIPA.

The two parallel expedited customer claims proceedings will
advance
and streamline the review, determination and distribution process,
and help to facilitate potential interim distributions to
customers, insofar as the pool of customer property subject to pro
rata distribution to commodity futures customers is separate and
distinct from the pool of customer property subject to pro rata
distribution to securities customers (and only securities
customers
may be eligible for SIPC advances), James B. Kobak, Esq., at
Hughes
Hubbard & Reed LLP, in New York asserted.

Although separate, many procedural aspects of the two customer
claims proceedings will overlap as a result of practical
considerations and similar procedural requirements under SIPA, the
Commodity Broker Liquidation Provisions and the Part 190
Regulations.  In general, the SIPA Trustee will take these
actions:

(A) Promptly making claim forms and instructions available for
   download on the SIPA Trustee's Web site,
   www.mfglobaltrustee.com to enable claimants to download and
   submit completed claim forms promptly by mail to the Trustee,
   and strongly encouraging customers with claims to do so in
   order to expedite the claims process;

(B) Publication and mailing of the notice of commencement of this
   proceeding along with claim forms and instructions to all
   potential claimants identified in MFGI's books and records;

(C) Prompt review of claims, on a rolling basis, as they are
   filed, and communication with individual claimants by
   telephone and email to answer questions and obtain threshold
   information that is missing from a customer's filed claim and
   supporting documentation, which may be necessary to evaluate
   claims and facilitate a potential interim distribution to
   customers;

(D) Determination of claims, and resolution of disputes with
   claimants who may object to the SIPA Trustee's determination,
   by working with those claimants on an informal and
   cooperative basis, and, as necessary, following formal
   procedures for obtaining a hearing before the Court; and

(E) Distributions of customer property and general estate
   property, including -- to the extent legally and practicably
   possible -- interim distributions of customer property, to
   satisfy allowed customer claims.

Specifically, the SIPA Trustee will cause the Notice of
Commencement to be published no later than December 2, 2011 in all
editions of The New York Times, all editions of The Wall Street
Journal, all editions of The Financial Times and all editions of
The Chicago Tribune.

The SIPA Trustee will cause these documents to be mailed to
persons
who, as identified from the Debtor's books and records, may
potentially assert claims as securities customers, commodity
futures customers, or general creditors, on or before December 2,
2011:

* Notice of Commencement;

* Securities Customer Claim Information (including Explanatory
   Letter to Customers, Explanatory Letter to Broker-Dealers,
   Securities Customer Claim Form Instructions, Securities
   Customer Claim Form);

* Commodity Futures Customer Claim Information (including
   Commodity Futures Customer Claim Form Instruction Letter and
   Commodity Futures Customer Claim Form); and

* General Creditor Claim Information (including Explanatory
   Letter to General Creditors and General Creditor Claim Form).

The SIPA Trustee will cause those documents to be made available
on
his Web site, www.mfglobaltrustee.com, for download, no later than
the day after the date of entry of this order.

The SIPA Trustee will have the authority, as provided in Section
78fff-2(b) of SIPA, to satisfy securities customer claims, insofar
as the claims agree with the Debtor's books and records, or are
otherwise established to the SIPA Trustee's satisfaction, without
further orders of the Court.

With respect to securities customer net equity claims, the SIPA
Trustee will have the authority to satisfy claims out of moneys
made available to the SIPA Trustee by the SIPC notwithstanding the
fact that there has not been any showing or determination that
there are sufficient funds of the Debtor available to satisfy such
claims.

With respect to securities customer claims relating to, or
securities customer net equities based upon, securities of a class
and series of an issuer which are ascertainable from the books and
records of the Debtor or are otherwise established to the
satisfaction of the Trustee, the SIPA Trustee will have the
authority to deliver securities of such class and series, if and
to
the extent available to satisfy those claims in whole or in part,
with partial deliveries to be made pro rata to the greatest extent
considered practicable by the SIPA Trustee.

The SIPA Trustee will implement the procedures prescribed in
Section 190.08 of Title 17 of the Code of Federal Regulations for
allocation and distribution of commodity futures customer
property,
to satisfy commodity futures customer claims, insofar as the
claims
agree with the Debtor's books and records, or are otherwise
established to the SIPA Trustee's satisfaction.

The SIPA Trustee will use these procedures for securities customer
claims, as defined in the SIPA, and commodity futures customer
claims, as defined in the Commodity Broker Liquidation Provisions
and the Part 190 Regulations, which are not allowed as filed:

(A) The SIPA Trustee will notify the claimant that he has
   determined that the claimant's claim has been disallowed in
   whole or in part or has otherwise not been approved for
   satisfaction as filed.

(B) The claimant may file a written opposition to the SIPA
   Trustee's determination in accordance with the instructions
   included with the SIPA Trustee's determination.  The claimant
   will file the written opposition with the Bankruptcy Court in
   accordance with local rules, and serve upon the SIPA
   Trustee's counsel.  The request will include: (i) the claim
   number; (ii) a detailed statement of the reasons for the
   claimant's objection to the SIPA Trustee's determination;
   (iii) copies of any document or other writing upon which the
   claimant relies; and (iv) mailing, phone, and email contact
   information for the claimant.

(C) The SIPA Trustee will, within 120 days of the date on which
   the claimant filed a written opposition to his determination,
   use his best effort to schedule a status conference regarding
   the claim determination dispute or file a motion seeking to
   uphold his determination of the claim.  If within 120 days of
   the date that the claimant filed a written opposition, the
   SIPA Trustee does neither of those actions, the claimant may
   then ask the Court to schedule a hearing on the claim
   determination dispute.  Notwithstanding the procedures
   outlined, the claimant and the SIPA Trustee may stipulate to
   informally resolve their dispute and/or any extensions of any
   of the timeframes without further leave of the Court.

(D) Prior to the SIPA Trustee's filing of a motion to uphold his
   determination, or the claimant's allowed motion for a
   hearing, no discovery or other motion practice will occur
   regarding the SIPA Trustee's determination of claim or facts
   giving rise to the determination, absent prior Court
   approval.

(E) If a claimant fails to file a written opposition within
   30 days of the mailing of the SIPA Trustee's determination or
   if the claimant fails to appear at a scheduled hearing, then
   the SIPA Trustee's determination shall be final.

The SIPA Trustee will have the authority to compromise and settle
any customer claim at any time, as appropriate, without further
order of this Court and all parties to this proceeding are
directed
to cooperate with the SIPA Trustee to the maximum extent possible
to achieve swift resolution of claims where possible.

Any claim of a securities customer for net equity under the SIPA
which is received by the Trustee after the expiration of a 60-day
time period beginning on the date of publication of the Notice of
Commencement need not be paid or satisfied in whole or in part out
of customer property, and, to the extent the claim is satisfied
from monies advanced by the SIPC, it will be satisfied in cash or
securities as the SIPA Trustee determines is most economical to
the
estate.

Judge Glenn established bar dates for these claims:

  January 31, 2012           -- the bar date for Claims of
                                commodity futures Customers.

  January 31, 2012           -- the bar date for receiving the
                                maximum possible protection for
                                securities customer claims under
                                the SIPA.

  June 2, 2012               -- the bar date for general claims.

Claims against the Debtor in this proceeding will be filed with
the
SIPA Trustee electronically online at www.mfglobaltrustee.com, or
sent to the SIPA Trustee via certified mail, return receipt
requested, through the SIPA Trustee's claims agent, Epiq
Bankruptcy
Solutions, LLC at:

  (i) for delivery via first class mail, MF Global Inc. Claims
      Processing Center, c/o Epiq Bankruptcy Solutions, LLC,
      P.O. Box 3656, Portland, OR 97208-3656; or

(ii) for delivery via overnight courier or hand delivery, MF
      Global Inc. Claims Processing Center, c/o Epiq Bankruptcy
      Solutions, LLC, 10300 SW Allen Blvd., Beaverton, OR 97005.

In furtherance of the SIPA Trustee's efforts to communicate with
and provide information to customers and creditors, a meeting of
customers and creditors will take place on January 12, 2012 at
10:00 a.m., at the New York Marriott Downtown, 85 West Street, New
York, NY 10006.

The SIPA Trustee will also file his first report pursuant to
Section 78fff-1(c) of the SIPA within six months after publication
of the Notice of Commencement, and will file interim reports at
least every six months thereafter.  The SIPA Trustee will also
file
status updates regarding implementation of this Order every 60
days
from November 23, 2011, but those status updates will not be
duplicative of interim reports.

Nothing in this order will prevent the U.S. Trustee for Region 2
from agreeing to procedures for intercompany claims as the SIPA
Trustee may determine is in the best interests of the MFGI estate,
Judge Glenn clarified.

In another filing, the Securities Investor Protection Corporation
insisted that the SIPA Trustee's Motion provides the guidance
necessary to implement the provisions of the SIPA and to provide
for an orderly liquidation of the Debtor.  Separately, the
Commodity Futures Trading Commission expects that the SIP Trustee
will use the mechanisms put in place to move as promptly as is
practicable and prudent to determine commodity customers' pro rata
share of MFGI customer funds, return funds to customers, and place
all customers on an equal footing.

                  Commodity Customers Object,
               SIPA Trustee Files Omnibus Reply

The Commodity Customer Coalition and other customers of MFGI
objected to the SIPA Trustee's parallel claims processes.

Kathleen L. Matsoukas, Esq., at Barnes & Thornburg LLP, in
Chicago,
Illinois -- kathleen.matsoukas@btlaw.com -- counsel to the
Coalition argued that the most glaring flaw of the SIPA Trustee's
Motion is that it does not necessarily account for the priority
that commodity investors should receive.  Indeed, the SIPA
Trustee's request seems to favor the SIPC in the liquidation.  She
further pointed out that no creditor claims should be processed
until 100% of customer funds held in customer segregated accounts
have been returned.  In an amended objection, the Coalition
complained that the SIPA Trustee refused input from the industry -
-
and clearly does not understand the industry, she asserted.  At a
November 17, 2011 meet and confer session, counsel for the SIPA
Trustee argued that the only purpose of the meet and confer was to
discuss the claim form and left the meeting without discussing the
claim process itself, outside of the form, she stated.

Separately, Dearborn Capital Management LLC, et al., demanded for
a
more streamlined claims filing and objections procedures for
commodities claims.

Thomas A. Butler, Jr.; Stuart Satullo and Adam Loos pointed out
that the SIPA Trustee's Motion is vague about the length of time
it
will take to make final distributions of customer funds, sets
forth
no time estimates for most of the steps in the process, and where
there is a definite time period set forth a time period that is
needlessly long.

George Lichtenstein sought clear guidance as to the process for
the
return of his property and assurance that the property will not be
liquidated.  Mr. Lichtenstein also asked the Court to establish
clear procedures for dealing with commodity customers' property,
including requests for return of specifically identifiable
property.  In a supplemental objection, Mr. Lichtenstein proposed
certain customer protections, including separate notice to
customers who filed instructions for return of specifically
identifiable property before November 15, 2011, and that notice of
compliance with the Nov. 15 deadline will not result in
liquidation
of customer property.

Lee B. Stern, et al., insisted that the claims process should
provide expedited review of the claims of customers who have
received little of their property from the SIPA Trustee compared
with other types of claims, like customers having small trade
positions who are frozen out of accessing their cash balances or
other property.

Counsel to the SIPA Trustee, Mr. Kobak related that eight formal
objections, supplemental statements, and amended objections were
filed in response to the SIPA Trustee's Motion, 165 letters that
have been received by the Court (most of which do not address the
SIPA Trustee's Motion), and numerous additional informal limited
objections that were received via e-mail or phone.  A list of the
letters is available for free at:

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

At the Court's directive, on November 17, 2011, the SIPA Trustee's
counsel, along with a representative of the CFTC, held a meet and
confer session with more than two dozen participants, to address
and resolve the Objections.  Mr. Kobak pointed out that many of
the
Objections -- both formal and informal-- raise common objections,
suggestions and concerns.  In response to the Objections, and in
order to clarify and improve the expedited claims process for the
benefit of customers, the SIPA Trustee incorporated many of the
suggestions and much of the feedback received and has sought to
address potential claimants' concerns by amending the proposed
forms and proposed order.

A chart listing each of the Objections (both formal and informal),
and the SIPA Trustee's corresponding responses and amendments is
available for free at:

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

A full-text copy of the amended proposed order is available for
free at:

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

Mr. Kobak told Judge Glenn that the SIPA Trustee has addressed and
resolved the majority of the objections, suggestions, concerns and
feedback interposed by the Objections by amending the proposed
forms and the proposed order.  Notably, the proposed claims
process
for securities customers was not the subject of any specific
Objection, he said.  Counsel for the SIPA Trustee is available and
will, to the extent possible, provide sought information and
respond to and answer specific questions that those claimants may
have.  As to other concerns, the SIPA Trustee insisted that it
sought approval of the parallel customer claims process without
prejudice to additional alternative efforts to return customer
property.

In a supplemental response, the SIPC clarified that neither it nor
the SIPA Trustee sought to alter the priorities governing the
distribution of customer property owed to commodities customers.
The SIPC maintained that the procedures adopted by the SIPA
Trustee
with respect to "specifically identifiable property" fully
conformed with the applicable provisions of the Bankruptcy Code
and
the CEA regulations.

MF GLOBAL: Bank of America Proposes Trading Via Ethical Wall
------------------------------------------------------------
Bank of America, N.A., and its affiliates seek permission from
Judge Glenn to trade in the securities upon the establishment and
implementation of "ethical wall."

Specifically, BofA asks the Court to determine that it and its
affiliates, acting in any capacity will neither violate their
fiduciary duties as a member of the Official Committee of
Unsecured
Creditors or otherwise, nor subject their claims to possible
disallowance, subordination or other adverse treatment by trading:

  (i) stock, notes, including but not limited to these notes
      issued by the Debtors: the 1.875% convertible notes, the
      6.25% senior unsecured notes, the 3.375% convertible
      senior notes, and the 9% convertible notes, bonds,
      debentures, participations, bank loans, including, but not
      limited to the Debtors' $1.2 billion unsecured revolving
      credit facility and $300 secured subsidiary credit
      facility or derivatives based upon or relating to, any of
      the Debtors' or their non-debtor affiliates' debt
      obligations or equity interests; or

(ii) any other claims against or interests in any one or more
      Debtors estates or their non-debtor affiliates that
      constitute "Securities" within the meaning of applicable
      United States or state securities laws or both, or the
      securities laws of any other jurisdictions, whether or not
      covered by Rule 3001(e) of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy
      Procedure as long as an Ethical Wall Entity that engages
      in any transaction establishes and effectively implements
      an Ethical Wall and procedures to prevent the misuse of
      any material non-public information obtained as a result
      of BofA's performance of Committee-related activities.

To that end, BofA intends to implement Ethical Wall procedures
designed to prevent trading personnel and investment personnel of
BofA from receiving any non-public information concerning the
Debtors through BofA personnel, representatives or agents
performing activities related to the Creditors' Committee.

Margot B. Schonholtz, Esq., at Wilkie Farr & Gallagher LLP, in New
York -- mschonholtz@willkie.com -- relates that BofA is directly
itself or is affiliated with investment advisors or managers that
provide investment-advisory services to institutional, pension,
mutual fund and high net-worth clients and affiliated funds and
accounts.  BofA may also buy and sell the Securities for their own
portfolios.  Although BofA owes fiduciary duties to the unsecured
claimholders of the Debtors' estates, it also has fiduciary duties
to maximize returns to its respective clients including through
trading the Securities, she stresses.

Thus, if BofA is barred from trading the Securities during the
pendency of the Debtors' Chapter 11 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 such clients, Ms. Schonholtz asserts.  In the alternative,
if BofA resigns from the Creditors' Committee, the role of the
Creditors' Committee and its duties to other creditors may be
compromised by virtue of BofA taking a less active role in the
reorganization process, she points out.

As evidence of its implementation of the procedures, Eric T. Sieke
of Bank of America, N.A. filed with the Court an Ethical Wall
declaration.  A full-text copy of the Declaration is available for
free at

MF GLOBAL: Elliott Mgt. Wins Nod for Information Blocking Protocol
------------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Martin Glenn approved Elliott Management Corp. and its
affiliates' information blocking procedures, which are designed to
prevent the misuse of Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors
information and which are acceptable to the U.S. Trustee for
Region 2 or otherwise consistent with those policies and
procedures.

Judge Glenn ruled that Elliott will not violate its duties as a
Committee member and, accordingly, will not subject its claims to
possible disallowance, subordination, or other adverse treatment,
by trading in the Covered Claims during the pendency of the
Debtors' Chapter 11 cases, provided that Elliott establishes and
effectively implements and strictly adheres to the information
blocking procedures detailed in the Screening Wall Declarations or
otherwise approved in writing by the U.S. Trustee and ordered by
the Court.  Likewise, Elliott's trading in the Covered Claims will
not constitute a breach of this order provided that it establishes
and effectively implements and strictly adheres to the information
blocking procedures detailed in the Screening Wall Declarations or
otherwise approved in writing by the Office of the U.S. Trustee,
according to the bankruptcy judge.

Should any entity related to or affiliated with the Debtor file a
bankruptcy petition at any time after the entry of this order, and
should Elliott contemplate trading in that new debtor's Covered
Claims, Elliott will file additional disclosures articulating the
informational blocking procedures that will be implemented by
Elliott that are designed to prevent the misuse of Committee
information.  In the event that any other individual Elliott
representative is chosen to replace Elliott's representative on
the
Creditors' Committee, the individual will deliver to the U.S.
Trustee a declaration affirming his or her compliance with the
screening procedures described herein prior to accepting any
responsibilities in connection with these Chapter 11 Cases.

Nothing in this order will prejudice the right of the U.S. Trustee
to take the action as she deems appropriate in these Chapter 11
cases, including the removal of any Creditors' Committee member
pursuant to Section 1102 of the Bankruptcy Code.

MF GLOBAL: L. Stern, et al., Asks OK for Withdrawal of Property
---------------------------------------------------------------
Lee B. Stern and certain futures and commodities traders ask the
Court to lift the automatic stay to permit them to withdraw, or
cause to be transferred to accounts maintained at one or more
different registered Futures Commission Merchants, their
specifically identifiable property and the highest percentage of
their other MF Global account assets as the Court determines would
be fair, equitable and otherwise appropriate.

The moving parties are Mr. Stern, Jeffrey Stern, Daniel Stern,
Richard Stark -- the Warehouse Receipt Claimants -- and Trascend
Investments LLC and Steven M. Abraham Revocable Trust -- Cash
Claimants.

Peter C. D'Apice, Esq., at Stutzman, Bromberg, Esserman & Plifka,
in Dallas, Texas, asserts that all the Claimants have been and are
being subjected to great hardship by the uncertainty and delay in
materially reuniting them with so much of their property from
their
accounts with MF Global that the ratable distribution by the SIPA
Trustee contemplated by Section 766(h) of the Bankruptcy Code may
still be accomplished.  Due to MF Global's status until late last
month as clearing firm for a large percentage of commodity and
futures traders and a large volume of trades in the broader
market,
the ongoing confusion, delay, and
disruption associated with its liquidation threatens their ability
to continue commodity and futures trading, he stresses.

As widely reported, approximately $600 million of additional
customer funds are missing, which means that MF Global would have
almost 90% of the segregated customer funds it is supposed to
have,
Mr. D'Apice states.  That alone puts the SIPA Trustee on a firm
footing for a substantial interim distribution, he insists.  In
addition, the CME Group announced that it was willing to provide
the Trustee a $250 million guarantee, which puts the SIPA Trustee
on even firmer ground for returning substantial property to MF
Global account holders on an interim basis-- even above the 90%
threshold -- very soon, he points out.  "It would seem therefore,
that the Claimants and others similarly situated could be reunited
almost immediately with a substantial percentage of their MF
Global
account assets, thus greatly minimizing their individual hardships
and the ongoing disruption of the
larger commodities and futures trading market," he tells Judge
Glenn.

Accordingly, lifting the stay to permit the Claimants to access
90%
or thereabouts of their MF Global accounts while maintaining the
remaining portion under the SIPA Trustee's control subject to a
future claims process is a solution, Mr. D'Apice maintains.

NATIONAL GRAPHICS: Section 341(a) Meeting Scheduled for Dec. 21
---------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Trustee for Region 11 will convene a meeting of creditors
Corporation/Partnership Asset Case of National Graphics, Inc. on
Dec. 21, 2011, at 10:00 a.m.  The meeting will be held at in
Milwaukee, U.S. Courthouse, Room 428.

The deadline to file a complaint to determine dischargeability of
certain debts is set for Feb. 21, 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.

National Graphics, Inc. filed a Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. E. D.
Wi. Case No. 11-36818) on Nov. 7, 2011 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin,
Leonard G. Leverson, Esq. at Leverson & Metz S.C. in Milwaukee,
Wisconsin serves as counsel to the Debtor.   The Debtor estimated
up to $50 million in assets and up to $10 million in liabilities.


NETFLIX INC: S&P Lowers Corp. Credit Rating to 'BB-' on Net Loss
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its rating on Los
Gatos, Calif.-based Netflix Inc. to 'BB-' from 'BB'. The rating
outlook is stable.

"At the same time, we lowered our issue-level rating on the
company's debt by one notch in conjunction with the downgrade. The
recovery rating on the debt issue remains unchanged," S&P said.

"The 'BB-' corporate credit rating and stable outlook on Netflix
reflect," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Andy Liu, "our
expectation that escalating content commitments will lower
profitability over the intermediate term, international expansion
will have a greater impact on overall profitability, and a return
of domestic subscriber growth could occur slightly later than we
initially expected." "While acknowledging Netflix's growing
programming commitments, we view the company as likely to maintain
moderate debt usage as it expands into international markets and
invests in new technology and content to grow market share."

"The stable outlook is based on our expectation of subscriber
growth in 2012. We are still concerned with the company's
escalating content costs and aggressive international expansion
plans. Netflix's profit warning for 2012 is driven by its
international expansion. If Netflix is unable to increase
domestic paid subscribers at a rate commensurate with its
spiraling content commitments (which grew to about $3.5 billion as
of Sept. 30, 2011, from about $1 billion at the end of 2010), we
could lower the rating. It is unlikely that we will raise the
rating over the near term. That would likely entail very healthy
subscriber growth, which more than offsets its growing content
commitments," S&P said.


NEWPAGE CORP: Court Allows Committee to Retain Advisor & Banker
---------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware authorized
the official committee of unsecured creditors of NewPage
Corporation, et al., to retain Alvarez & Marsal North America LLC
as its financial advisor and Moelis & Company LLC as its
investment banker.

The Court granted the applications even without the guaranteed
completion fee.  The Court will consider completion fee requests
of Alvarez & Marsal and Moelis & Company at the conclusion of the
case under 11 U.S.C. Sec. 330 review.

The Committee indicated that it wanted the opportunity to consult
with Alvarez & Marsal and Moelis & Company to see if they were
willing to serve without a guaranteed completion fee and the Court
therefore scheduled a hearing for Dec. 1, 2011, at 10:00 a.m.

To avoid any confusion, the Court has ruled as stated above and
has not been asked to reconsider its ruling.  If the Committee is
asking for reconsideration or has different terms to propose, it
must file an appropriate pleading asking for reconsideration of
the original terms or consideration of revised terms.

NewPage Corporation and certain of its subsidiaries and affiliates
seek permission from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Delaware to employ Ciardi Ciardi & Astin as their special counsel,
nunc pro tunc to Oct. 27, 2011, primarily to represent them in
connection with issues relating to the official committee of
unsecured creditors' proposed employment of financial
professionals.  The Debtors have selected Ciardi as their special
counsel because of the firm's experience and knowledge in business
restructurings under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code and, more
specifically, professional employment and compensation issues
arising in those bankruptcy cases.

The current hourly rates of Ciardi professionals are $250 to $560
for attorneys and $95 to $180 for paraprofessionals.

The Debtors agree to reimburse Ciardi for its expenses incurred
including, among other things, photocopying services, printing,
delivery charges and filing fees.

NEWPAGE CORP: S&P Withdraws 'D' Ratings on Various Note Issues
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services withdrew its 'D' issue-level
ratings on Miamisburg, Ohio-based NewPage Corp.'s first-lien
notes, second-lien notes, and senior subordinated notes. "We also
withdrew our '4' recovery rating on the company's first-lien
notes, indicating our expectation of average recovery (30% to
50%), and '6' recovery rating on the company's second-lien notes
and senior subordinated notes, indicating our expectation of
negligible recovery (0% to 10%)," S&P said.

The ratings actions follow the company's filing of a voluntary
petition under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code to implement
its restructuring plan on Sept. 7, 2011. NewPage plans to continue
operating its U.S. businesses as usual during the Chapter 11
restructuring and has obtained debtor-in-possession (DIP)
financing, consisting of a $250 million DIP term loan and a $350
million DIP revolving credit facility.

"As of Nov. 28, 2011, we continue to estimate NewPage's gross
enterprise value for recovery purposes at about $1.4 billion, and
so our recovery projections for these obligations remain unchanged
notwithstanding the $250 million DIP term loan and the potential
for DIP revolving borrowings," S&P said.


NEWPAGE CORP: Plum Creek Seeks to End Fiber Supply
--------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Plum Creek Timber Co. believes it has the right to
stop supplying wood fiber even though paper maker NewPage Corp.
filed for Chapter 11 protection in September.  To insure there is
no inadvertent violation of the automatic stay, Plum Creek filed
papers in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware for a ruling that the
fiber-supply agreement is a forward commodity contract that can be
terminated regardless of bankruptcy.

According to the report, Plum Creek, based in Seattle, explains
how it signed NewPage to a 10-year contract in 2005. Over the
years, Plum Creek says it sold $111.7 million in fiber to NewPage.
Plum Creek believes the contract qualifies as a forward
commodities contract under the Bankruptcy Code.  If it's correct,
bankruptcy law contains an exception to the automatic stay
allowing Plum Creek to terminate as a result of NewPage's
bankruptcy.

There will be a hearing in bankruptcy court on Dec. 13 for
permission to give a notice terminating the obligation to supply
wood fiber in 2012.

NNN 2400: Wants to Complete Financing 60 days After Dec. 22
-----------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of California
will convene a hearing on Dec. 15, 2011, at 2:00 p.m., to consider
NNN 2400 West Marshall 19, LLC's request to extend time to
complete refinancing.

The Debtor seeks for an order (i) extending the date by which it
must complete refinancing of secured creditor's collateral from
Dec. 22, 2011, to a date 60 days after the order.  The Court, on
Oct. 17, entered an order resolving calculation of amount due to
secured creditor MLMT 2005-CIP1 West Marshall Drive, LLC, and
extending time to complete refinancing.

According to the Debtor, there seems to be no scenario that the
order will become final before Dec. 22, 2011, or in time for
Debtor to complete its refinancing.  The Debtor relates that it
has made significant progress toward refinancing, including
securing a potential lender, G.E. Commercial Finance Business
Property Corporation, who would loan $6,500,000, but will not act
further until the order determining the amount due to secured
creditor becomes final.  The completion of refinancing thereafter
will require at least 60 days, including the proper noticing and
bringing of appropriate motions before the Court for approval of
the refinancing and dismissal of these Chapter 11 proceedings
concurrent with the close of the refinancing escrow.

In a separate motion, MLMT 2005-CIP1 asks that the Court (i) amend
the payoff order to allow the payment of default interest to
holder in the amount of 408,912; and (ii) grant holder other and
further relief as is just and proper.

On Oct. 17, 2011, the Court entered the payoff order, which, among
other things, set the amount due at $5,919,525.  The amount due
does not include any default interest.

The holder seeks entry of an order amending the payoff order to
grant holder default interest to which it is entitled under the
loan documents and pursuant to the Bankruptcy Code.

The holder states that it is clear that the Debtor knew or must
have known that holder did not intend to waive default interest.
The holder's counsel never, either verbally or in writing,
discussed the full waiver of default interest with the Debtor or
the Debtor's counsel.

NEXTWAVE WIRELESS: Extends Refinancing Deadline to Dec. 15
----------------------------------------------------------
NextWave Wireless Inc. disclosed that its senior note holders have
agreed to a further extension to Dec. 15, 2011 of the deadline for
the Company to complete a refinancing transaction.  On Aug. 1,
2011, the Company entered into an agreement with the holders of
its secured notes pursuant to which such holders agreed to forbear
from exercising their respective rights and remedies in connection
with the Company's failure or anticipated failure to pay amounts
coming due under the agreements relating to each class of notes.
The forbearance agreement required the Company to complete a
refinancing transaction within a specified time frame, initially
set to expire on Sept. 30, 2011 and subsequently extended by the
senior note holders to Nov. 30, 2011.  Any extension of the
forbearance period beyond Dec.15, 2011 will require the consent of
each of the Company's secured note holders.

NextWave continues to seek alternative financing to refinance and
extend its substantial secured debt, with an aggregate principal
amount of $983.6 million at Oct. 1, 2011, and its ability to
obtain such financing or alternative accommodations from its note
holders prior to the expiration of the forbearance period on
Dec. 15, 2011 remains subject to substantial risks.  NextWave's
Senior Secured Notes, having an aggregate principal amount of $133
million at October 1, 2011, matured on July 17, 2011, and
NextWave's Senior-Subordinated Secured Second Lien Notes due 2011,
having an aggregate principal amount of $186.3 million at
Oct. 1, 2011, will mature on Nov. 30, 2011, and the holders of
such notes will be permitted to seek to enforce their payment
rights upon expiration of the forbearance period.  In addition,
NextWave's Senior-Subordinated Secured Third Lien Notes due 2011,
having an aggregate principal amount of $664.3 million at
Oct. 1, 2011, will mature on Dec. 31, 2011.  As previously
disclosed, NextWave's cash reserves are not sufficient to meet
these payment obligations at the current maturity dates.
Inability to obtain a refinancing transaction, maturity extension
or other accommodation from NextWave's noteholders prior to the
expiration of the term of the forbearance agreement would
significantly restrict the Company's ability to operate and could
cause it to seek relief through a filing in the United States
Bankruptcy Court.  Any alternative financing and/or maturity
extension of NextWave's notes may be costly to obtain, and could
involve the issuance of equity securities that could cause
significant dilution to its existing stockholders.

The forbearance agreement and the contemplated refinancing
transaction were described in detail in NextWave's Current Report
on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on
Aug. 2, 2011.

                       About NextWave Wireless

San Diego, Calif.-based NextWave Wireless Inc. (OTC QB: WAVE)
-- http://www.nextwave.com/-- is a wireless technology company
that manages and maintains worldwide wireless spectrum licenses.

                         Bankruptcy Warning

The Company's current cash reserves are not sufficient to meet its
payment obligations under its secured notes at their current
maturity dates.  Additionally, the Company will not be able to
consummate sales of its wireless spectrum assets yielding
sufficient proceeds to retire this indebtedness at the current
scheduled maturity dates.  If the Company is unable to extend
maturity beyond 2011, or identify and successfully implement
alternative financing to repay the Senior Notes and Second Lien
Notes, the holders of the Company's secured notes could proceed
against the assets pledged to collateralize these obligations.
These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company's
ability to continue as a going concern.  Insufficient capital to
repay the Company's debt at maturity would significantly restrict
its ability to operate and could cause the Company to seek relief
through a filing in the United States Bankruptcy Court.  Any
alternative financing or maturity extension of the Company's
secured notes may be costly to obtain, and could involve the
issuance of equity securities that could cause significant
dilution to the Company's existing stockholders and potentially
limit the Company's net operating loss carry forwards.

                        Going Concern Doubt

As reported in the TCR on March 23, 2011, Ernst & Young LLP, in
San Diego, Calif., expressed substantial doubt about NextWave
Wireless's ability to continue as a going concern, following the
Company's 2010 results.  The independent auditors noted that the
Company has incurred recurring operating losses and has a working
capital deficiency, primarily comprised of the current portion of
long term obligations of $784.6 million at Jan. 1, 2011, that is
associated with the maturity of its debt.  "The Company currently
does not have the ability to repay this debt at maturity."

OASIS AT WILD HORSE: Court Rejects Sanctions Against Fernandos
--------------------------------------------------------------
Chief Bankruptcy Judge James M. Marlar denied a motion for fees
and costs, in the nature of sanctions, filed by corporate
principals, Russell and Mary Sholes, in the chapter 11 case of
Oasis at Wild Horse Ranch, LLC.  The Sholes seek $80,335.78 in
attorneys' fees and costs for their prevailing effort in gaining
early dismissal of the Debtor's voluntary Chapter 11 case.  The
monetary award is sought -- not against the Debtor -- but against
the other corporate principals, Judy and Raynu Fernando.

According to Judge Marlar, the Sholes have cited no specific
statute, nor rule, under which their prayer for relief falls,
other than their general feeling that 11 U.S.C. Sec. 105(a), and
the court's "inherent powers," will remedy what they perceive as
an abuse of the bankruptcy system.  The judge explained that in
the federal court system, courts follow the "American Rule" when
it comes to considering attorneys' fee awards. The American Rule
denies attorneys' fees to a litigant in federal court in the
absence of contract, applicable statute or other exceptional
circumstances.

"In the absence of binding authority from our Circuit or its
Bankruptcy Appellate Panel, which would authorize an award of fees
in the circumstances present [in the case], this court is
reluctant to rule favorably on the Sholes' plea," Judge Marlar
said.  "For that relief, they will have to convince an appellate
court that this court's authority ranges that far afield.  If
remanded, this court can then determine, with clear guidance from
a higher court, how best to proceed in order to resolve the
dispute."

A copy of Judge Marlar's Nov. 23, 2011 Memorandum Decision is
available at http://is.gd/Jgj1xVfrom Leagle.com.

Oasis At Wild Horse Ranch, LLC, in Tucson, Arizona, filed for
Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. D. Ariz. Case No. 11-01124) on Jan.
14, 2011.  Elizabeth S. Fella, Esq., and Kasey C. Nye, Esq. --
elizabeth.fella@quarles.com and kasey.nye@quarles.com -- at
Quarles & Brady LLP, serve as the Debtor's counsel.  In its
petition, the Debtor estimated $1 million to $10 million in assets
and under $1 million in debts.  The petition was signed by Judy
Fernando, manager.

"In its essence, this case was delivered into the hands of the
bankruptcy court as a continuing outgrowth of a deadlocked battle
for control of the Debtor entity. This court perceived the
bankruptcy case was simply a tactical end-run, and that the real
dispute, by necessity and reason, had to be logically and legally
played out in other forums," Judge Marlar said.


OCEAN PLACE: Can Access AFP 104's Cash Collateral Until Nov. 30

OILSANDS QUEST: Obtains Creditor Protection Under CCAA
------------------------------------------------------
Oilsands Quest Inc. has requested and obtained an Order from the
Alberta Court of Queen's Bench providing creditor protection under
the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act (Canada).  While under
CCAA protection, the Company will continue with its day to day
operations.

On Nov. 28, 2011, the third party that had signed a Letter of
Intent to purchase the Company's Wallace Creek asset notified
Oilsands Quest that they could not meet the terms of that Letter
of Intent.  Negotiations on the proposed Wallace Creek sale have
ended, and the Board of Directors of Oilsands Quest has therefore
decided to seek CCAA protection after considering all available
alternatives.  The Company has been hindered in recent months by
market and financial challenges, details of which will soon be
available on the website www.ey.com/ca/oilsandsquest.  CCAA
protection stays creditors and others from enforcing rights
against the Company and affords Oilsands Quest the opportunity to
restructure its financial affairs.  The Court has granted CCAA
protection until Dec. 21, 2011, to be further extended as required
and approved by the Court.

"We made the difficult decision to seek creditor protection
because we believe this step to be in the best interest of all our
stakeholders," said Garth Wong, Oilsands Quest Chief Executive
Officer.  "We have been actively seeking options to manage our
liquidity and to raise the capital we need to proceed with
developing our assets.  To protect those assets and find a
solution that will enable them to be developed, we are seeking
options to restructure our affairs up to and including the sale of
the company."

While under CCAA protection, the Board of Directors maintains its
usual role and management of the Company remains responsible for
the day to day operations, under the supervision of a Court-
appointed monitor, Ernst & Young Inc., who will be responsible for
reviewing Oilsands Quest's ongoing operations, assisting with the
development and filing of a Plan of Arrangement that is
established by management, liaising with creditors and other
stakeholders and reporting to the Court.  The Board of Directors
and management will be primarily responsible for determining
whether a Plan for restructuring the Company's affairs is
feasible.  Affected stakeholders will have an opportunity to vote
on the Plan.  Before the Plan is implemented it must be approved
by the requisite number and value of affected stakeholders
contemplated by law and approved by the Court.

CCAA protection enables the Company to continue with its day to
day operations until the CCAA status changes.  The implications of
this process for Oilsands Quest shareholders will not be known
until the end of the restructuring process.  If the affected
stakeholders do not approve a Plan in the manner contemplated by
law, Oilsands Quest will likely be placed into receivership or
bankruptcy.  If by Dec. 21, 2011, Oilsands Quest has not filed a
Plan or obtained an extension of the CCAA protection, creditors
and others will no longer be stayed from enforcing their rights.
Oilsands Quest will issue a further press release on or before
Dec. 21, 2011 to provide an update.

The NYSE Amex ("NYSE") has halted trading in the common shares of
the Company (symbol:BQI).  The NYSE may proceed to delist the
company for failure to meet the continued listing requirements of
the NYSE as a result of the Company proceeding under the CCAA.
BQI's common shares will remain suspended from trading until a
delisting occurs, or until the NYSE permits the resumption of
trading.

"We remain confident that our in situ oil sands assets will some
day be developed into commercial facilities," Mr. Wong concluded.
"Oil sands development is a long-term, capital-intensive business.
The timing for our planned pilot project unfortunately coincided
with a downturn in the capital markets that has impacted our
ability to access capital or to identify strategic alternatives to
enable us to proceed.  We hope that through this process, we will
be able to arrive at a satisfactory solution for all our
stakeholders, including our shareholders."

OLDE PRAIRIE: Winner's Development to Provide $40.2MM Cash Equity
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Olde Prairie Block Owner, LLC, has filed a disclosure statement
for the Debtor's Updated Third Amended Plan of Reorganization.

The Debtor has received and accepted a written offer from Winner's
Development, LLC 3 indicating its agreement to provide a cash
equity contribution in an amount up to $40,200,000 which would be

outstanding principal amount of the CenterPoint loans and its
prepetition costs and expenses and otherwise satisfy CenterPoint's
claims against the Debtor and its assets, (iii) pay in full all
administrative expense claims, and (iv) provide to holders of all
Allowed unsecured claims the cash distributions.  As consideration
for making the Cash Equity Contribution, the Plan Investor will
receive a to-be-determined percentage of the Interests in the
Reorganized Debtor.

Upon confirmation of the Third Amended Plan, the Reorganized
Debtor will continue its legal existence as an Illinois limited
liability company and will be vested with title to all property
of its estate.  From and after the Effective Date, the Reorganized
Debtor will utilize the revenues generated from operation of the
Property and Parking Lease to implement the Third Amended
Plan.

Chicago.  It also holds a long-term lease with the Metropolitan
Pier and Exposition Authority that allows it rent-free use of 450

Olde Prairie Block Owner sought chapter 11 protection (Bankr. N.D.
Ill. Case No. 10-22668) on May 18, 2010.  The Debtor is

N. Park, Esq., and Patrick F. Ross, Esq., at Ungaretti & Harris
LLP, in Chicago.  Wildman, Harrold, Allen & Dixon LLP, and Marcus,

The Debtor estimated assets at $100 million to $500 million and
liabilities at $10 million to $50 million at the time of the
filing.

The Court previously found that the total value of the Real
Properties and the Parking Lease was $81,150,000, far more than
the $48,000,000 that CenterPoint claims to be owed by the Debtor.
No trustee, examiner, or committee has been appointed in this
case.


ORANGE COUNTY: S&P Lowers Rating on Revenue Bonds to 'BB-'
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its rating to 'BB-'
from 'BB' on Orange County, Calif.'s apartment development revenue
bonds series 1998C, issued for the Orange Gardens Apartment
Project.

"The rating action reflects our analysis of updated financial
information based on our current stressed reinvestment rate
assumptions for all scenarios as set forth in the related criteria
articles," S&P said.

"We believe that revenues from mortgage debt service payments and
investment earnings will be insufficient to pay the final debt
service and fees on the bonds," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Jose Cruz. "Furthermore, in the event of prepayment, we
believe there will be insufficient funds to cover reinvestment
risk based on the 30-day minimum notice period required for
special redemption beyond November 2013."

The preceding credit weaknesses are mitigated in part by S&P's
view of:

    The very strong credit quality of the assets, which consist of
    a Fannie Mae passthrough certificate, and

    Investments that are held in JP Morgan U.S. Government Money
    Market Fund (AAAm).


ORBITAL SCIENCES: S&P Affirms 'BB+' Corporate Credit Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Rating Services affirmed its 'BB+' corporate
credit rating on Dulles, Va.- based Orbital Sciences Corp. "We
also raised the rating on the company's subordinated debt to 'BB'
from 'BB-' and revised the recovery rating to '5' from '6'. The
outlook is stable," S&P said.

"Our affirmation of the corporate credit rating reflects our
belief that Orbital Sciences will generate improved credit metrics
next year as the company completes the development of its new
Taurus II rocket," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Lisa
Jenkins. "However, we believe the improvement will be insufficient
to offset the risks associated with the company's limited program
diversity and the riskiness of its launch business."

"Orbital is a leading provider of small-launch vehicles and small-
and medium-sized geostationary communications satellites, boost
vehicles, and targets for missile defense programs. Standard &
Poor's believes Orbital will generate solid revenue growth over
the coming year given its sizeable firm backlog ($2.17 billion at
Sept. 30, 2011; about 1.6x trailing-12-month revenues) and its
focus on programs that we believe will continue to receive
healthy funding, despite anticipated cuts in U.S. Department of
Defense (DoD) and NASA budgets. We characterize the company's
business risk profile as 'fair' and its financial risk profile as
"intermediate," as our criteria define the terms," S&P said.

"The outlook is stable. In our view, generally favorable prospects
for the company's key missile defense and space programs and a
firm backlog should support moderate revenue growth for the coming
year. We expect Orbital to maintain an overall credit profile
consistent with the current ratings," S&P said.

"Although unlikely, we could lower the ratings if leverage
increases substantially (debt to EBITDA of more than 3.0x) and if
we believe that it will stay there for an extended period, which
could happen as a result of an acquisition, product development
problems, or cancellation of a major contract. An upgrade is also
unlikely, as business risks and challenges (which include reliance
on a relatively few programs and the risk of a launch failure)
constrain the current rating," S&P said.


OTERO COUNTY: Asks Court to Extend Plan Filing Period to Sept. 14
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Otero County Hospital Association Inc. asks the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the District of New Mexico to extend its exclusive
periods to file a plan and to solicit acceptances of a filed plan
through and including Sept. 14, 2012, and Nov. 14, 2012,
respectively.

The Debtor relates that since June of 2010, it has been subject to
an onslaught of personal injury lawsuits stemming from a series of
procedures performed at the Hospital between 2006 and 2008.  Over
fifty individuals who underwent such procedures have filed
lawsuits.

The Debtor tells the Court that it should extend the exclusive
periods in order to allow it to continue to consensually and in
good faith resolve the lawsuits and if such attempts fail, to
permit it sufficient time to prepare for an estimation hearing.

In addition, the Claims Bar Date is Dec. 21, 2011, which extends
past the Dec. 14, 2011 exclusive filing period and, thus, the
Debtor will not know the universe of claims at the time the
original exclusive filing period expires.

PALM HARBOR: Joint Plan of Liquidation Confirmed
------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Christopher S. Sontchi of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the District of Delaware has confirmed the joint plan of
liquidation of PHH Liquidation Trust, et. al., on Nov. 17, 2011.

Inc., a venture between Cavco Industries Inc. and a fund advised
by Third Avenue Management LLC.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Nov. 17, 2011, the
disclosure statement predicted that holders of 3.25% convertible
senior notes would recognize a recovery of between 16.7% and 21%
on their $54.8 million in claims.  General unsecured creditors
with $36.4 million to $47.3 million in claims are to receive an
identical recovery.

PITTSBURG CORNING: Settles With Hartford Insurance
--------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Pittsburgh Corning Corp., a joint venture between
Corning Inc. and PPG Industries Inc. approaching 12 years in
Chapter 11, negotiated a settlement with insurance companies
belonging to Hartford Financial Services Group Inc.  The
settlement calls for the insurance companies to pay $8.17 million.
Pittsburg Corning says the payment will exhaust the insurance
companies' liability under the "products or completed operations"
portion of the policies.

Bloomberg News recounts that this year, the bankruptcy judge for a
second time refused to confirm the reorganization plan designed to
shed Pittsburg Corning, Corning, and PPG of liability for asbestos
claims arising from Pittsburg Corning's business.  The judge again
said the plan was too broad because it would bar claims that were
independent of Pittsburg Corning's business.  The plan is designed
to deal with 140,000 claims arising from an asbestos pipe
insulation that wasn't manufactured after 1972.

                     About Pittsburgh Corning

Pittsburgh Corning Corporation filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy
protection (Bankr. W.D. Pa. Case No. 00-22876) on April 16, 2000,
to address numerous claims alleging personal injury from exposure
to asbestos.  At the time of the bankruptcy filing, there were
about 11,800 claims pending against the Company in state court
lawsuits alleging various theories of liability based on exposure
to Pittsburgh Corning's asbestos products and typically requesting
monetary damages in excess of $1 million per claim.

The Hon. Judith K. Fitzgerald presides over the case.  Reed Smith
LLP serves as counsel and Deloitte & Touche LLP as accountants to
the Debtor.

The United States Trustee appointed a Committee of Unsecured Trade
Creditors on April 28, 2000.  The Bankruptcy Court authorized the
retention of Leech, Tishman, Fuscaldo & Lampl, LLC, as counsel to
the Committee of Unsecured Trade Creditors, and Pascarella &
Wiker, LLP, as financial advisor.

The U.S. Trustee also appointed a Committee of Asbestos Creditors
on April 28, 2000.  The Bankruptcy Court authorized the retention
of these professionals by the Committee of Asbestos Creditors: (i)
Caplin & Drysdale, Chartered as Committee Counsel; (ii) Campbell &
Levine as local counsel; (iii) Anderson Kill & Olick, P.C. as
special insurance counsel; (iv) Legal Analysis Systems, Inc., as
Asbestos-Related Bodily Injury Consultant; (v) defunct firm, L.
Tersigni Consulting, P.C. as financial advisor, and (vi) Professor
Elizabeth Warren, as a consultant to Caplin & Drysdale, Chartered.

On Feb. 16, 2001, the Court approved the appointment of Lawrence
Fitzpatrick as the Future Claimants' Representative.  The
Bankruptcy Court authorized the retention of Meyer, Unkovic &
Scott LLP as his counsel, Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor, LLP as
his special counsel, and Analysis, Research and Planning
Corporation as his claims consultant.

In 2003, a plan of reorganization was agreed to by various
parties-in-interest, but, on Dec. 21, 2006, the Bankruptcy Court
issued an order denying the confirmation of that plan, citing that
the plan was too broad in addressing independent asbestos claims
that were not associated with Pittsburgh Corning.

On Jan. 29, 2009, an amended plan of reorganization (the Amended
PCC Plan) -- which addressed the issues raised by the Court when
it denied confirmation of the 2003 Plan -- was filed with the
Bankruptcy Court.


PLATINUM PROPERTIES: Seeks Approval of $600,000 DIP Facility
------------------------------------------------------------
Platinum Properties, LLC, asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Southern District of Indiana for authority to obtain
postpetition financing of up to $600,000 from Palmer Properties,
LLC, in the form of a secured line of credit, to allow the Debtor
to pay its ordinary and necessary operating expenses.

The proposed postpetition financing grants the Lender a first
priority mortgage lien on twelve (12) platted lots in the
Bellewood subdivision located in Hamilton County, Indiana.

First Internet Bank of Indiana has a first priority security
interest in and lien on the DIP Collateral to secure the Debtor's
obligation to First Internet of approximately $56,000.  As part of
the DIP Financing, First Internet will be fully repaid from the
initial draw at closing under the approved DIP loan.  First
Internet will contemporaneously therewith release its lien on the
DIP Collateral.

The total principal outstanding under the Loan Documents will not
exceed the lesser of (i) $600,000 or (ii) an amount equal to 60%
of the aggregate Gross Sales Price of the DIP Collateral that is
subject to the Lender's mortgage at any given time of reference.

Upon a sale of any lot comprising the DIP Collateral, the Debtor
will make a payment in the amount equal to the remainder of the
Gross Sales Price of the purchased lot less the sum of the Builder
Deposit Credit and all closing costs to be paid by the Debtor in
connection with each sale.

The Loan will be made at the rate of 12% per annum.  Interest will
become due and payable with each payment and at maturity.

The Note will mature on Dec. 31, 2013.

The Lender is entitled to an expedited hearing seeking termination
of the automatic stay as to the DIP Collateral upon an Event of
Default.

       existing contracts, market and sales, labor force,

       potential buyers who will be contacted to determine

       memorandum;

received a discharge of any liability arising from contracts
completed prior to Aug. 2, 2004, the date the plan was confirmed.
The plan disaggregated RCR Plumbing from AMPAM.

RCR Plumbing filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. C.D. Calif.

RCR PLUMBING: PAC Financing Deal OK'd; Further Amendment Allowed
----------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Central District of California authorized, on a final basis, RCR
Plumbing and Mechanical, Inc., to:

   a) enter into the premium finance agreement;

   b) grant Premium Assignment Corporation, or its successors or
      assigns a first priority lien on and security interest in
      unearned premiums; and

   c) pay PAC or its successor or assigns all sums due under
      the Financing Agreement.

The Court ordered that without limitation, the liens, security
interests and rights in unearned premiums granted under the
Financing Agreement are senior to the lien of any DIP Lender in
the case and are senior to any claims under Sections 503, 506(b)
or 507(b) of the Bankruptcy Code.

If additional premiums become due to insurance companies under the
policies financed under the Financing Agreement, the Debtor and
PAC or its successor or assigns are authorized to modify the
Financing Agreement as necessary to pay the additional premiums
without the necessity of further hearing or order of the Court.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Nov. 15, 2011, the
terms of the financing agreement includes:

         Total premium:                $1,183,071
         Cash Down Payment:              $323,500
         Unpaid Premium Balance:         $859,571
         Finance Charge                   $14,715
         Total of Payments:              $874,286
         Annual Percentage Rate:            4.09%
         Payment Term:                   9 months
         Monthly Payment:                 $97,142

The Debtor's obligations under the financing agreement will be
secured by unearned premiums.

The Debtor related that the interests of secured creditors PNC
Bank and the Richey Family Trust are over-secured and adequately
protected.  The Debtor noted that its indebtedness to PNC Bank and
Richey, as an individual and as trustee of the Robert C. Richey
Family Truste dated Jan. 20, 1997, are secured by substantially
all of the Debtor's assets.

REDDY ICE: Receives Additional Notice Regarding NYSE Listing
------------------------------------------------------------
Reddy Ice Holdings, Inc. has been notified by NYSE Regulations,
Inc. that it is not in compliance with one of the continued
listing standards of the New York Stock Exchange.

Reddy Ice is considered below the continued listing criteria
established by the NYSE because the Company's average closing
price has been less than $1.00 over a consecutive 30 trading-day
period.

In accordance with NYSE procedures, Reddy Ice has six months from
the receipt of the notice on Nov. 28, 2011 to bring its share
price and average share price above $1.00.  If, at the expiration
of the six month period, the Company fails to achieve both a $1.00
share price and average share price over the preceding 30 trading
days, the Company will be subject to suspension and delisting
proceedings.  As required by the NYSE's rules, the Company plans
to notify the NYSE within 10 days of receipt of the non-compliance
notice of the Company's intent to remedy its non-compliance.

The Company previously announced on Sept. 27, 2011 that it had
been notified by the NYSE regarding the Company's non-compliance
with the NYSE's $50 million minimum market capitalization
requirements.  On Nov. 21, 2011, the Company announced that its
plan to restore compliance with continued listing standards had
been accepted by the NYSE.

The Company's common stock remains listed on the NYSE under the
symbol "FRZ," but has been assigned a ".BC" indicator by the NYSE
to signify that the Company is not currently in compliance with
the NYSE's continued listing standards.  The Company is required
to maintain compliance with other applicable NYSE continued
listing requirements, including the minimum global market
capitalization standard, which requires the Company to maintain an
average global market capitalization of at least $15 million over
a consecutive 30 trading-day period.  Failure to maintain
compliance with this requirement would result in the NYSE promptly
initiating suspension and delisting procedures.  On Nov. 28, 2011,
Reddy Ice's common stock had a closing price of $0.69 per share,
equating to a market capitalization of approximately $16.1
million, and a 30 trading-day average closing price of $0.93 per
share.

ROTTLUND HOMES: Ceases Business; Appoints Receiver to Sell Assets
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Star Tribune reports that Minnesota-based homebuilder Rottlund
Homes will cease operations by year's end, a victim of the brutal
downturn in the local housing market.

The Star Tribune relates that Rottlund has confirmed that it had
appointed a receiver to liquidate its assets after failing to
secure financing to stave off the downturn or find a buyer.

"We fought the valiant fight," the report quotes Steven Kahn, the
firm's chief financial officer, as saying.  "For the past five
years, we've tried to continue to build homes in what has become a
very, very difficult housing market."

According to the report, Mr. Kahn said the company tried to work
with three banks to secure financing but was unable to craft a
deal.  A search for a buyer proved futile, he added.

"The last five years have been a housing depression," Star Tribune
quotes David Siegel, executive director of the Builders
Association of the Twin Cities, as saying. "Some call it a
recession. We call it a depression."

The Star Tribune, citing data distributed by the Builders
Association, discloses that Rottlund in 2006 reported $130 million
in gross revenue and closed on 512 homes.  By the end of 2010,
gross revenue had declined to $38 million, with just 190 closings.

Mr. Kahn, as cited by the Star Tribune, said Rottlund has already
sold its operations in Iowa and is in the process of selling off
assets at its Florida division.  Just 18 employees remain at its
Roseville headquarters, down from a high of 225 at the three
divisions.  Twenty homes in the Twin Cities will be completed
around year's end, Mr. Kahn said, while promising all
subcontractors will be paid in full. "This will be an orderly
liquidation; no one will get stiffed," he said.

SEAHAWK DRILLING: Draws Made on Letters of Credit on Trust
----------------------------------------------------------
On or about Nov. 15, 2011, draw requests by Servicio de
Administracion Tributaria an agency of the Secretaria de Hacienda
y Credito Publico of Mexico, Mexico's governmental tax authority
on four letters of credits in the aggregate amount of
MXN 600,136,853.00 were honored by Scotiabank Inverlat, S.A., an

bankruptcy estate of Seahawk Drilling, Inc. et al., Case No. 11-
20089 in the United States Bankruptcy Court of the Southern
District of Texas, Corpus Christi Division have now been
liquidated.

The Seahawk Liquidating Trust, as the indirect shareholder of the
taxing paying entities in Mexico, is currently contesting the
legality of these draws in Mexico.

Seahawk filed for Chapter 11 protection to complete the sale of
all assets to Hercules Offshore, Inc.  As reported by the Troubled
Company Reporter on April 11, 2011, the Bankruptcy Court approved
an Asset Purchase Agreement between Hercules Offshore and its
wholly owned subsidiary, SD Drilling LLC, and Seahawk Drilling,
pursuant to which Seahawk agreed to sell to Hercules, and Hercules
agreed to acquire from Seahawk, all 20 of Sellers' jackup rigs and
related assets, accounts receivable and cash and certain
liabilities of Sellers in a transaction pursuant to Section 363 of
the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.  The deal was valued at about $176
million when it received court approval.

The purchase price for the acquisition will be funded by the
issuance of roughly 22.3 million shares of Hercules Offshore
common stock and cash consideration of $25 million, which will be
used primarily to pay off Seahawk's Debtor-in-Possession
loan.  The number of shares of Hercules Offshore common stock to
be issued will be proportionally reduced at closing, based on a
fixed price of $3.36 per share, if the outstanding amount of the
DIP loan exceeds $25 million, with the total cash consideration
not to exceed $45 million.  The deal closed on April 27, 2011.


SIX FLAGS: Moody's Rates Proposed Credit Facility at 'B1'
---------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service changed Six Flags Theme Parks Inc.'s
(Six Flags) rating outlook to positive from stable and assigned a
B1 rating to the company's proposed senior secured credit
facility. The rating outlook change reflects Moody's expectation
that Six Flags' debt-to-EBITDA leverage will continue to decline
steadily through earnings growth driven by improvements in per
capita spending and margins as well as modest attendance growth.
Six Flags' B1 Corporate Family Rating (CFR) and SGL-4 speculative-
grade liquidity rating are not affected. Moody's updated the loss
given default assessments based on the proposed changes to the
debt structure.

   Issuer: Six Flags Theme Parks, Inc.

   -- Outlook, Changed To Positive From Stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

Six Flags has performed well following its emergence from
bankruptcy in April 2010 with cost reductions, new marketing
campaigns, and yield enhancement strategies driving meaningful
margin and EBITDA growth despite relatively flat attendance.
Moody's believes ongoing pricing discipline to reduce discounting
and enhance yield will continue to lift earnings and reduce
leverage over the next 12-18 months. Moody's anticipates Six
Flags' slate of new attractions will contribute to modest
attendance gains notwithstanding a sluggish economic environment,
although EBITDA is still expected to improve if attendance remains
flat.

The revised credit agreement would loosen the limitations on
restricted payments and Moody's expects Six Flags will utilize the
bulk of its excess cash balance and projected free cash flow for
shareholder distributions. Share repurchases managed within
internally generated cash resources would thus not preclude an
upgrade if leverage continues to decline. Debt reduction will
likely be limited to required term loan amortization
(approximately $13 million in the first year after closing) and an
excess cash flow sweep based on a multiple of leverage.

Approximately 50% of Six Flags' ownership base is comprised of
distressed debt/hedge fund investors that obtained their equity
positions as part of the bankruptcy reorganization. Moody's views
uncertainty regarding the timing and form of their exit strategy
as a meaningful credit overhang. A full or partial exit could
increase Six Flags' leverage and this is a consideration in
maintaining the CFR at B1 at this time. Absent such exit
transactions, the board and management have indicated a
willingness to allow leverage to decline as earnings increase.
Moody's believes the risk of exit transactions to existing credit
facility lenders is partially mitigated by change of control and
financial maintenance covenants and that good stock price
performance can diminish pressure for aggressive financial
actions.

The proposed refinancing will favorably extend the maturity of the
facility and reduce cash interest expense. This will improve free
cash flow, although Moody's believes Six Flags will distribute the
bulk of its free cash flow to shareholders. The facility is
secured by a first priority lien on substantially all of Six
Flags' wholly-owned domestic subsidiaries (this excludes the
partnership parks) and guaranteed by Six Flags Entertainment
Corporation (SFEC, Six Flags' parent). Ratings on the existing
credit facility will be withdrawn upon closing of the new
facility.

Six Flags' B1 CFR reflects the sizable attendance and revenue
generated from the geographically diversified regional amusement
park portfolio, vulnerability to cyclical consumer spending, high
leverage, liquidity and funding risks associated with minority
holders' annual right to put their share of partnership parks to
Six Flags, and event risk relating to control by a group of
opportunistic distressed debt/hedge fund investors. The amusement
park industry is mature and operators must compete with a wide
variety of leisure and entertainment activities to generate
consumer interest, with attendance growth in the low single digit
range expected over the next 3-5 years. The new management team
installed after Six Flags emerged from bankruptcy has driven
meaningful earnings growth and significantly reduced the margin
gap relative to other regional theme park operators. Moody's
believes ongoing management actions along with alleviating the
burden of the previously over-levered capital structure will
continue to lead to improved park performance. Debt-to-EBITDA
leverage (approximately 4.5x LTM 9/30/11 incorporating Moody's
standard adjustments and the partnership park puts as debt) is
high but is projected to continue declining to a 4x range over the
next 12-18 months absent any leveraging transactions.

The SGL-4 speculative-grade liquidity rating reflects the risk
associated with funding minority interest puts should holders
exercise the maximum amount of potential obligations putable (the
puts are exercisable annually from March 31 through late April and
Six Flags must fund any exercises by May 15th). The liquidity
rating would be higher absent the puts. Moody's assumes a full
exercise in its liquidity analysis, although historical put
exercises have been below $10 million annually (except for $66
million in 2009). This is a level that is comfortably manageable
within Six Flags existing cash ($305 million as of 9/30/11) and
unused capacity on the proposed revolver factoring in a projected
cash burn in the $150 million range between September 30 and mid-
May based on Moody's estimates for operating performance, cost
efficiencies and dividends. The timing of the put option is
crucial as they must be funded by mid-May near the peak of the
company's seasonal cash needs.

The positive rating outlook reflects Moody's view that Six Flags
could be positioned for an upgrade within 12-18 months if leverage
continues to decline and operations are stable or improving. The
liquidity and funding overhang from the partnership puts and event
risks related to the controlling shareholder group are primary
constraining factors at this time, but do not preclude an upgrade
if leverage continues to decline such that financial capacity to
manage these risks increases.

Downward rating pressure could result if acquisitions, cash
distributions to shareholders, ownership transitions, or declines
in attendance and earnings driven by competition or a prolonged
economic downturn lead to debt-to-EBITDA above 5.75x or free cash
flow-to-debt less than 4%. Ratings could also be pressured if
liquidity weakens - including if concerns arise regarding the
company's ability to meet partnership put obligations -- or the
company's financial policies become more aggressive.

A good liquidity position including sufficient cash, projected
free cash flow and committed financing to fully cover potential
partnership park put exercises would be necessary for an upgrade.
Stable to improving operating performance and margins, management
of shareholder distributions within excess cash and free cash
flow, and a conservative leverage profile could position the
company for an upgrade. The nature of the ownership-related event
risk is challenging to quantify, but increased financial capacity
to manage such event risks (such as debt-to-EBITDA in a 4x range
or lower and strong free cash flow-to-debt) would be necessary for
an upgrade.

Please see the ratings tab on Six Flags' issuer page on
www.Moodys.com for the last credit rating action and rating
history. Please see Six Flags' credit opinion on www.Moodys.com
for additional information on the company's ratings.

Six Flags' ratings were assigned by evaluating factors that
Moody's considers relevant to the credit profile of the issuer,
such as the company's (i) business risk and competitive position
compared with others within the industry; (ii) capital structure
and financial risk; (iii) projected performance over the near to
intermediate term; and (iv) management's track record and
tolerance for risk. Moody's compared these attributes against
other issuers both within and outside Six Flags' core industry and
believes Six Flags' ratings are comparable to those of other

The Debtor engaged Lynn Tillotson effective as of Oct. 27, 2011,
to serve as its special litigation counsel regarding potential
claims against SUMCO USA Sales Corporation.  The Debtor chose Lynn

Recovery" obtained by way of settlement, judgment, payment or
other compensation that results directly or indirectly from the

consideration of any kind is obtained as a result of the
litigation of the Cases.  Payment of the Contingency Fee will
occur at the same time that funds are received by Debtor.

The Debtor agrees to be directly responsible for all expenses
incurred by Lynn Tillotson in the bankruptcy case.

3.25-acre plot. There are $185 million in original principal
amount of first mortgages, not including a $30 million mezzanine
loan.

second-round bid would be identified by Sept. 12.  The highest bid
would be submitted for approval at the confirmation hearing in

at the auction.  The Lender is represented by Mark Taylor, Esq.,

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of California
will convene a hearing on Dec. 13, 2011, at 2:15 p.m., to consider
the motion to convert the Chapter 11 case of Tasann Ting Group
Inc. to one under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code.

August B. Landis, Acting U.S. Trustee for Region 17 requested for
the conversion of the Debtor's case because:

   1) the case has been pending for almost one year and the Debtor
   has failed to file a viable disclosure statement or plan; and

   there is no likelihood of rehabilitation.

TENNESSEE COMMERCE: Receives Notice of Deficiency From NASDAQ
-------------------------------------------------------------
Tennessee Commerce Bancorp, Inc. reported that on Nov. 22, 2011,
it received a deficiency letter from The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC
indicating that the Company was not in compliance with the
requirements for continued listing under NASDAQ Listing Rule
5250(c)(1), which requires that NASDAQ-listed companies file their
required periodic financial reports with the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission on a timely basis.  The Deficiency Letter was
issued in accordance with standard NASDAQ procedures as a result
of the Company not yet having filed its Form 10-Q for the period
ended September 30, 2011 (the "Form 10-Q") with the SEC.

The Deficiency Letter states that the Company has 60 calendar days
or until Jan. 23, 2012 to submit a plan to NASDAQ to regain
compliance with the filing requirements for continued listing on
the NASDAQ Global Market.  If the Plan is accepted, the Company
can be granted an exception of up to 180 calendar days or until

otherwise timely file the Plan; however, there can be no assurance
that the Plan will be accepted by NASDAQ.  In the event the Plan
is not accepted, the Company has the right to appeal to the NASDAQ

able to file its Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2011

UNIONBANCAL: Moody's Changes Outlook to Stable
----------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service changed the rating outlook on
UnionBanCal Corporation and subsidiaries to stable from negative.
Moody's also affirmed the long-term ratings of UnionBanCal
Corporation (subordinated debt of Baa1) and its subsidiary, Union
Bank, N.A. (long-term bank deposits of A2 and its bank financial
strength rating of C+).

These actions had no impact on the FDIC-guaranteed debt issued by
Union Bank, N.A., which remains at Aaa with a negative outlook.

RATINGS RATIONALE

The change in rating outlook is based on UnionBanCal's superior
credit metrics in its residential mortgage and home equity
portfolio, which accounts for 45% of its total loans. UnionBanCal
has targeted wealthy borrowers in the metropolitan and coastal
areas of California. Its residential portfolio is conservatively
underwritten with high FICOs and low LTVs. These characteristics
resulted in better performance than Moody's had previously
anticipated. Residential net charge-offs were 0.32% in the third
quarter of 2011, which is better than most similarly-rated peers.

Regarding UnionBanCal's total loan portfolio, its nonperforming
assets, including 90 days past due and accruing TDRs, as a
percentage of total loans and OREO were 1.8% (excluding FDIC
covered assets), which is a relatively low level.

Moody's last rating action was on April 13, 2009 when
UnionBanCal's long-term ratings were downgraded with a negative
outlook.

The methodologies used in this rating were "Bank Financial
Strength Ratings: Global Methodology" published in February 2007,
"Incorporation of Joint-Default Analysis into Moody's Bank
Ratings: A Refined Methodology" published in March 2007, and
"Moody's Guidelines for Rating Bank Hybrid Securities and
Subordinated Debt published in November 2009.

UnionBanCal Corporation, which is headquartered in San Francisco,
CA reported total assets of $84 billion as of September 30, 2011.


ZAIS INVESTMENT: Noteholder Plan Heads for Approval Hearing
-----------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that a reorganization plan for Zais Investment Grade Ltd.
VII will come to U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Trenton, New Jersey for
approval at a Feb. 6 confirmation hearing.  The disclosure
statement explaining the plan proposed by Hildene Capital
Management was approved last week.

The report relates that Zais was a theoretically bankruptcy-remote
special purpose company created to own collateralized debt
obligations.  The case began with the filing of an involuntary
Chapter 11 petition in April by Anchorage Capital Group LLC.

Bloomberg relates that after a group of junior noteholders led by
Hildene failed in an effort at having the bankruptcy dismissed,
junior noteholders filed their own plan.  The plan will continue
the business of holding the investments and paying out receipts,
first paying off the $184.1 million in senior-most notes.  The
disclosure statement says that the most senior notes will be fully
paid over time.  The second tier of notes, amounting to
$27 million, are predicted to have an eventual 68.5% recovery. The
second-tier noteholders will waive their claims for post-
bankruptcy interest and in return receive the new common stock.
The disclosure statement predicts no recovery for more than $148
million in more junior tranches of notes.

                About Zais Investment Grade Limited

Zais Investment Grade Limited VII is based in Grand Cayman.

On April 1, 2011, Anchorage Capital Master Offshore, Ltd., GRF
Master Fund, L.P., and Anchorage Illiquid Opportunities Offshore
Masters, L.P. filed an involuntary Chapter 11 petition against
Zais Investment Grade Limited VII. On April 26, 2011, the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of New Jersey entered an order
for relief under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code.

The Debtor tapped Wollmuth Maher & Deutsch LLP as general
bankruptcy counsel, and Jones Day as special counsel.

The Debtor disclosed $365,771,549 in liabilities in its schedules.

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

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

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

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

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

Each Friday's edition of the TCR includes a review about a book of
interest to troubled company professionals.  All titles are
available at your local bookstore or through Amazon.com.  Go to

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

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