proposed plans of reorganization filed by Tribune Co. and
competing creditor groups have delayed Tribune's emergence from
bankruptcy.  Many of the disputes among creditors center on the
2007 leveraged buyout fraudulence conveyance claims, the
resolution of which is a key issue in the bankruptcy case.   The
bankruptcy court has scheduled a May 16 hearing on Tribune's plan.

                      About Washington Mutual

Based in Seattle, Washington, Washington Mutual Inc. -- was the holding company for Washington
Mutual Bank as well as numerous non-bank subsidiaries.

Washington Mutual Bank was taken over on Sept. 25, 2008, by U.S.
government regulators. The next day, WaMu and its affiliate, WMI
Investment Corp., filed separate petitions for Chapter 11 relief
(Bankr. D. Del. 08-12229 and 08-12228, respectively). WaMu owns
100% of the equity in WMI Investment. When WaMu filed for
protection from its creditors, it disclosed assets of
$32,896,605,516 and debts of $8,167,022,695. WMI Investment
estimated assets of $500 million to $1 billion with zero debts.

WaMu is represented by Brian Rosen, Esq., at Weil, Gotshal &
Manges LLP in New York City; Mark D. Collins, Esq., at Richards,
Layton & Finger P.A. in Wilmington, Del.; and Peter Calamari,
Esq., and David Elsberg, Esq., at Quinn Emanuel Urquhart Oliver &

Records filed Jan. 24, 2012, say that Washington Mutual Inc.,
former owner of the biggest U.S. bank to fail, has spent $232.8
million on bankruptcy professionals since filing its Chapter 11
case in September 2008.

Washington Mutual, Inc. disclosed that Judge Mary Walrath at a
hearing Feb. 17 said she will approve WaMu's reorganization plan,
thus concluding the three and one-half year-old bankruptcy.

The Plan is based on a global settlement intended to remove almost
all opposition to the reorganization and remedy defects the judge
identified in September.  The plan is designed to distribute
$7 billion.  Under the reorganization plan, WaMu will establish a
liquidating  trust to make distributions to parties-in-interest on
account of their allowed claims.


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

On Thursdays, the TCR delivers a list of recently filed
Chapter 11 cases involving less than $1,000,000 in assets and
