AMERICAN AIRLINES: US Airways Inks Nondisclosure Agreement
----------------------------------------------------------
Susan Carey, writing for The Wall Street Journal, reports that
American Airlines parent AMR Corp. and US Airways Group Inc., said
Friday they have signed a nondisclosure agreement, clearing the
way for the pair to share confidential information so they can
evaluate a potential combination.  The companies said they would
"work in good faith" and in "close collaboration" with AMR's
creditors.  They said they won't make further public comment
"until the parties have entered into a transaction or discussions
between the parties have been terminated," adding that there is no
assurance that a transaction will happen.

WSJ says terms of the deal couldn't be learned, but it is believed
to be several months in duration and would prohibit US Airways
from talking up the combination publicly or continuing its merger
negotiations with American's unions or its own labor groups.

WSJ also relates US Airways' Association of Flight Attendants
union announced support for the combination alongside American's
Association of Professional Flight Attendants union, already a
vocal proponent.

According to WSJ, in a memo to US Airways employees Friday, CEO
Doug Parker said he is "pleased to be working directly with
American to study a potential merger and we consider this very
good news." He warned that the agreement on confidentiality
doesn't mean the two companies are merging. He also said that as a
result of signing the nondisclosure agreement, "we won't be able
to be as open and candid about the discussions with American as we
usually are about issues that are important to all of us."

WSJ also relates American, in a memo to its managers Friday, said
as part of the merger exploration process, "other parties have
also signed confidentiality agreements, which permit the
confidential exchange of information and discussion between
American and those parties."

AMERICAN AIRLINES: BA Parent Inks Confidentiality Agreement
-----------------------------------------------------------
Susan Carey, writing for The Wall Street Journal, reports that the
parent of British Airways, AMR Corp.'s partner in the Oneworld
airline alliance, confirmed on Friday that it had signed a
confidentiality agreement with the U.S. carrier.  Willie Walsh,
chief executive of International Consolidated Airlines Group SA,
has said his company is open to making a "small" investment in
AMR. Mr. Walsh also said last month that a deal between AMR and US
Airways -- in which BA used to own a minority stake -- has
"attractions."

AMERICAN AIRLINES: Has Green Light to Reject Labor Deals
--------------------------------------------------------
Dow Jones Newswires' Joseph Checkler reports that Bankruptcy Judge
Sean H. Lane on Tuesday said AMR Corp. can reject labor agreements
in place with its pilots union.

The report recounts that Judge Lane in August issued a 106-page
ruling that said AMR couldn't reject its current labor proposals
with the pilots because its latest labor offer forced pilots to
take furloughs -- or unpaid days off -- and because it was too
aggressive in implementing code-sharing agreements that would
allow AMR to share routes with other airlines at a cost savings to
the airline.  AMR removed the furloughs and adjusted the code-
sharing provisions and resubmitted its proposal to Judge Lane, who
had supported most of AMR's other original arguments.  AMR made
those changes in a filing late last month.

According to Dow Jones, the court's decision places new urgency on
AMR and the Allied Pilots Association to reach a settlement on new
contracts as AMR's merger talks escalate with US Airways Group
Inc.  The pilots have said they support a merger with US Airways.
The report relates Judge Lane at Tuesday's hearing said he
sympathizes with the pilots and that he hopes a settlement will
come soon.

The report relates American's spokesman Bruce Hicks, after the
hearing, said the company has worked "very hard" to reach a deal
with the pilots and that it would communicate details of its new
plan in the coming days.

In court on Tuesday, the report notes, a lawyer for the pilots
union said AMR's financial condition has improved since a three-
week trial over labor contracts earlier this year, and that a new
trial should be held.

Dow Jones notes the disagreement centered on what the meaning of
the phrase "business plan" is -- specifically whether AMR's latest
offer of a 17% cut in labor costs related to the pilots, compared
with a 20% cut in its prior offer, constituted evidence of a new
business plan and necessitated another trial.  The pilots said the
change, which came after AMR offered similar concessions in
settlements with its mechanics and flight attendants, was part of
a new plan.  But Judge Lane said the 17% offer came in
confidential contract negotiations, not in bankruptcy court, and
thus wasn't something he could consider.

Dow Jones relates Paul Hastings LLP's Neal D. Mollen, a lawyer for
AMR, said that while the airline is in the process of changing its
business plan, nothing has been finalized. On the witness stand,
AMR Chief Restructuring Officer Beverly K. Goulet concurred,
saying the original business plan has been "updated" to reflect
settlements with other unions but that no new plan has been
presented.

Dow Jones also reports a lawyer for the union, James & Hoffman
PC's Kathy Krieger, asked Ms. Goulet whether the proposal for a
17% labor-cost savings related to pilots was part of a larger
change to the company's plan.  "We did not go back and re-examine
the other components of the business plan," Ms. Goulet said.

BROWNSTONE LOFTS: Can Employ Coleman Frost as Bankruptcy Counsel
----------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of California
has authorized Brownstone Lofts, LLC, to employ Coleman Frost LLP
as general bankruptcy counsel effective as of June 11, 2012.

On June 20, the Court granted the request of the Debtor's previous
counsel, Manasian & Rougeau, to withdraw as attorney.  According
to Manasian & Rougeau's motion, the Debtor has not paid any funds
for debt counseling or bankruptcy, as the Debtor's funds were
insufficient to retain counsel.  The firm's retainer was initially
paid by a non-insider, non-creditor third party, and later by a
non-creditor affiliate of Monica Hujazi, the sole managing member
of the Debtor.

Coleman will charge the Debtor for services at the rate of $425
per hour.  The Debtor has not paid Coleman any money to date.
Ms. Hujasi has guaranteed the Debtor's payment for services
rendered.  The guarantee payor has provided the applicant a $7,500
retainer.

To the best of the Debtor's knowledge, Coleman does not hold or
represent any interest adverse to the Debtor's estate.

CANO PETROLEUM: Tri-Flow Inc.'s Chapter 11 Case Dismissed
---------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas
dismissed the Chapter 11 case of Tri-Flow, Inc., a debtor-
affiliate of Cano Petroleum, Inc., et al.

Tri-Flow filed with the Court a certificate of no objection in
relation to its motion to dismiss its Chapter 11 petition.

Tri-Flow was included in the bankruptcy filing of the Debtors out
of an abundance of caution and to ensure the Debtors' assets and
equity could be effectively marketed.  The Debtors, however, did
not receive any qualified bids for Tri-Flow's assets or equity.

Tri-Flow stated in the motion that it is an Oklahoma corporation
of which Cano purchased the outstanding stock, along with all
outstanding stock of Ladder Companies, Inc. in June 2004.  Over
the years and pursuant to various transactions, Tri-Flow sold its
assets and expended its cash such that, eventually, Tri-Flow
exists essentially as a shell company.  Tri-Flow's schedules
reflect no assets or liabilities, other than two contingent
liabilities related to executory contracts.  No senior-secured or
junior-secured claims have been asserted against Tri-Flow.

                        About Cano Petroleum

Cano Petroleum, Inc. (NYSE Amex: CFW), an independent Texas-

The petitions were filed by James R. Latimer, III, chief executive
officer.  Judge Barbara J. Houser oversees the case.  The Debtors
are represented by lawyers at Thompson & Knight LLP, in Dallas
Texas.

CHINA SKY ONE: Faces SEC Charges Over Inflating Financial Results
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Securities and Exchange Commission charged a China-based
company and its chief executive with fraud for recording fake
sales of a weight loss product to inflate revenues in the
company's financial statements by millions of dollars.

The SEC alleges that China Sky One Medical Inc. falsely stated in
2007 annual and quarterly reports that it had entered into a
strategic distribution agreement with a Malaysian company that
would become the "exclusive" distributor of CSKI's "slim patch" in
Malaysia and generate $1 million per month in sales.  However, the
company never actually entered into any such agreement.  CSKI
instead created approximately $19.8 million in phony export sales
to Malaysia that were recorded as revenue in its financial results
for 2007 and 2008.  CEO Yan-qing Liu certified the overstated
financial results, which appear in CSKI's financial statements
through 2010 and continue to impact the company's retained
earnings on its balance sheet.

"Accurate and reliable financial reporting is the bedrock of our
capital markets, and CSKI blatantly defrauded investors by
fabricating sales and overstating its financial results," said
John M. McCoy III, Associate Director of the SEC's Los Angeles
Regional Office

According to the SEC's complaint filed in U.S. District Court for
the Central District of California, CSKI is based Harbin, China.
In addition to weight loss patches, the company produces and sells
sprays, ointments, and other Chinese traditional pain relief and
health and beauty products.  CSKI became a public company trading
on the U.S. markets through a reverse merger in May 2006.

The SEC alleges that after CSKI devised the purported strategic
distribution agreement with Takasima Industries -- which is a
Malaysian fitness equipment manufacturer and retailer -- CSKI went
on to falsely report export sales to Malaysia of more than $12.2
million for 2007, which constituted 25% of its total revenues.
CSKI then falsely recorded $7.5 million (8.2% of total revenues)
in such sales for 2008.  Virtually all of CSKI's reported sales to
Malaysia via Takasima were bogus.  Takasima only purchased
$167,542 in slim patches from CSKI in 2007, and none in 2008.  And
it never entered into any distribution agreement with CSKI and
never undertook -- much less satisfied -- any minimum purchase
commitment.

According to the SEC's complaint, CSKI also falsely claimed in its
public filings that its top two customers for 2007 were sales
agents for Takasima.  CSKI identified those customers as Ningbo
Yuehua International Trading Company and Guangzhou Xinghe
International Trading Company, which collectively accounted for
the phony 25% of CSKI's total revenues for 2007.  CSKI claimed
that all of these purported sales to Ningbo Yuehua and Guangzhou
Xinghe went through Takasima, while in fact Takasima never had any
relationship with these two entities.

CSKI and Liu are charged with violating Section 17(a) of the
Securities Act of 1933, Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange
Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5, and various Exchange Act provisions
including corporate reporting, recordkeeping, internal controls,
and false statements to auditors.

The SEC's complaint seeks financial penalties against CSKI and Liu
as well as disgorgement of ill-gotten gains by Liu, who personally
benefited from the overstated financial statements through the
company's 2008 private placement of securities.  The SEC also
seeks to have Liu reimburse CSKI for certain incentive-based
compensation he received during the period affected by the fraud
pursuant to Section 304 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, and to have Liu
barred from acting as an officer or director of a public company.
The SEC also seeks to have CSKI and Liu permanently enjoined from
future violations of these provisions of the federal securities
laws.

In addition to the court action, the SEC instituted administrative
proceedings to determine whether to revoke or suspend registration
of CSKI's securities due to the company's failure to file its
annual report for 2011 or any quarterly reports for 2012.

The SEC's investigation, which is continuing, has been conducted
by Junling Ma, Rhoda Chang, and Marshall S. Sprung of the SEC's
Los Angeles Regional Office.  The SEC's Cross Border Working Group
-- which focuses on U.S. companies with substantial foreign
operations -- and the SEC's Office of International Affairs
assisted in the investigation.  The SEC's litigation will be led
by David Van Havermaat.


CONNAUGHT GROUP: Court OKs CBIZ as Taxation Accountants
-------------------------------------------------------
The Connaught Group, Ltd., et al., have sought and obtained
approval to hire CBIZ MHM, LLC as special taxation accountants to
perform all accounting services on behalf of the Debtors in
connection with the preparation and filing of federal and state
tax returns for the year ended Dec. 31, 2011.

During the year prior to the Petition Date, in accordance with its
usual billing and receipt practices relative to the Debtors, CBIZ
received a total of $251,293 in the aggregate from the Debtors in
relation to such services.

The Debtors proposed that CBIZ's compensation postpetition be
based on the hourly rate for each accounting professional or
paraprofessional who performs services for or on behalf of the
Debtors as then established and in effect for such professional at
CBIZ.  The hourly billing rates at CBIZ are $600-$650 for
shareholders, $350-$480 for managers, and $180-$250 for staff.
CBIZ will also seek reimbursement for administrative and
processing charges incurred in connection with the representation.

The Debtors believe that neither CBIZ nor any CBIZ professional
holds or represents an interest adverse to the Debtors in the
matters upon which CBIZ is to be employed.

end women's wear and then sells the finished clothing through an
innovative sales system outside the normal retail chain originally

clients in private showings.  Through the Wardrobe Consultants,
the Debtors are able to offer the personalized service and
attention to detail absent from the conventional shopping
experience.  As of the Petition Date, the Debtors are affiliated
with more than 1,300 Wardrobe Consultants.  The Debtors also
operate 10 outlet stores throughout the country, but the Debtors

A non-debtor Canadian subsidiary, The Connaught Group ULC, sells
the Debtors' clothing in eight outlet stores in Canada.  Three of
the Canadian stores are leased by The Connaught Group, Ltd.

CHAMPION ENTERPRISES: Credit Suisse Did Not Cause Bankruptcy
------------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Kevin Gross cleared Credit Suisse AG, Cayman
Islands Branch, from a lawsuit commenced by unsecured creditors of
Champion Enterprises, Champion Home Builders Co., Inc., and their
related entities.  The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors
claims that Credit Suisse AG, Cayman Islands Branch breached
provisions of a 2005 credit agreement between and among Champion,
its Lenders and CSAG as Administrative Agent.  The alleged
breaches consisted of assignments of Champion's senior debt to MAK
Capital Fund LP, a significant equity holder of Champion for
several years.  The Committee further alleges that CSAG also
breached its duty of good faith and fair dealing.  The Committee
seeks damages and the disallowance of any claims by CSAG.  CSAG
disputes the Committee's claims, contending it did not breach the
Credit Agreement, the Committee is estopped from asserting claims
because of the conduct Champion, that Champion released its claims
and, in any event the Committee is unable to prove the alleged
breaches caused any damage.

In its ruling, the Court said CSAG breached the Credit Agreement
but that the Committee did not prove the breach caused Champion's
bankruptcy or resulted in damages.  Accordingly, the Court
dismissed the claims against CSAG and entered judgment in favor of
CSAG.

Champion was declared in default under the loan in the second
quarter of 2009.  As of July 2009, Champion had no options for
raising either debt or equity capital and its attempts to sell
various business operations to raise cash had failed.  The secured
lenders rejected a proposed 18-month amendment to the loan
covenants for a variety of reasons, including concerns about the
Company's "struggling" financial condition and liquidity,
historical inability to meet its forecasts, and the deteriorating
housing market.

Champion initially blocked MAK from participating in the lending
consortium but later reversed on its position.

Champion's assets were sold in a Court-supervised Section 363
sale.  Morgan Joseph, the Company's financial advisors, had
targeted 170 potential investors and received a total of 12
indications of interest in a sale process that spanned several
months.  Champion, despite the strenuous efforts by management and
Morgan Joseph, did not receive any viable offers to purchase the
company prior to the Sec. 363 sale.  At no time did any potential
buyer express an interest in paying more than roughly $130 million
for Champion.  Ultimately, the Court approved a "stalking horse"
bid led by three lenders, and no qualified competing bids were
submitted by the Feb. 24, 2010 deadline.  On March 2, 2010, the
Court held the sale hearing, approved the sale, and authorized the
parties to consummate the transaction pursuant to the terms of the
asset purchase agreement, as amended, allowing certain of the
Lenders to credit bid their prepetition claims against Debtors.

Judge Gross' decision noted the Lenders were entitled to recover
the full amount of their secured claims -- roughly $227 million
(plus interest) -- before the unsecured creditors stood to recover
anything.  The $227 million amount included roughly $187 million
of Champion Loans and $40 million owed pursuant to the DIP Credit
Agreement.

Judge Gross also noted that the market value of Champion's
securities had declined rapidly since the beginning of 2008.  On
Dec. 29, 2007, Champion had a total enterprise valuation of $908.8
million. This value declined by almost half by the beginning of
2009. ((Champion's TEV was $480.4 million at Jan. 3, 2009).) By
July 4, 2009, the TEV of Champion's securities was only 20% of its
value at the beginning of that year -- $98 million -- and roughly
$89 million below the value of the Champion Loans.

group consisting of affiliates of Centerbridge Partners, L.P., MAK
Capital Fund LP and Sankaty Advisors, LLC invested $50 million in
new capital to support the operations and growth initiatives of
the new company.  The transaction was supported by a group of
Champion's existing lenders who, together with the lead investors,
agreed to exchange 100% of existing debt under Champion's
prepetition and DIP senior secured credit agreements for equity in
the new company and a $40 million senior secured five year note.

Champion's bankruptcy case has been renamed CEI Liquidation
Estates following the closing of the sale.

In May 2011, Champion's Second Amended Joint Chapter 11 Plan of
Liquidation became effective.  Under the Plan, the Debtors
transfered certain causes of action to a Creditor Trust that would
administer and liquidate them for the benefit of general unsecured
Creditors.   Any recovery to general unsecured creditors would be
entirely dependant on the results of any prosecution of
litigation.


CHARTER COMMUNICATIONS: 2nd Cir. Rejects R2 and LDT Plan Appeals
----------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit upheld lower
court rulings dismissing the appeals to the confirmed
prenegotiated Chapter 11 plan of Charter Communications Inc. and
its affiliates.  The Second Circuit agreed with the lower courts
that the appeals lodged by Law Debenture Trust Company of New
York, as indenture trustee for certain notes issued by Charter
CCI, and R2 Investments, LDC, a CCI shareholder, are "equitably
moot".

In 2008, Charter, the nation's fourth-largest cable television
company and a leading provider of cable and a broadband service,
was operationally sound but carried almost $22 billion in debt at
various levels of its corporate structure.  After the September
2008 collapse of Lehman Brothers and the financial crisis that
ensued, Charter could no longer service its debt due to the
tightening credit markets, Charter's excessive leverage, and lower
valuations of companies in the cable sector.  Charter began
negotiating with Paul G. Allen, a major investor whose ownership
stake gave him control of the company, and a group of junior
bondholders -- the Crossover Committee.  The negotiations
culminated in a settlement that contemplated Charter's
prenegotiated reorganization in bankruptcy.  Charter then filed
for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, using the Allen Settlement as the
cornerstone of its prenegotiated Plan.

Left out of the negotiations, however, were LDT, the trustee for
$479 million in aggregate principal of convertible notes issued by
CCI; R2, a CCI shareholder; and J.P. Morgan Chase N.A., the holder
of Charter's senior debt.  The entities had no input into the
Allen Settlement or the prepackaged Plan.

Charter's reorganization strategy was driven by the goal of
reinstating its senior credit facility with JPMorgan -- that is,
curing any breaches in its contracts with JPMorgan so that
JPMorgan would be classified as an unimpaired creditor.  Charter
wanted to avoid renegotiating its senior debt during the financial
turmoil of late 2008 and early 2009 because it believed such
renegotiation would at best lead to a higher interest rate and at
worst result in Charter being closed off to new financing
altogether.  Charter thus needed to structure its reorganization
in a way that would avoid triggering a default under the credit
agreement with JPMorgan.  One condition Charter had consented to
in the credit agreement was that Mr. Allen would retain 35% of the
ordinary voting power of Charter Communications Operating, LLC,
the obligor under the senior credit agreements. For the
reorganization plan to succeed, Charter thus needed to induce Mr.
Allen to retain these voting rights, even though most of his
investment in Charter would be wiped out.  In addition, for
Charter to preserve roughly $2.85 billion of net operating losses,
a valuable tax attribute, it needed Mr. Allen to forgo exercising
contractual exchange rights and to maintain a 1% interest in
Charter Communications Holding Company, LLC.  Because Charter's
main goals in restructuring, namely reinstating its senior debt
and obtaining tax savings though preserving net operating losses,
required Mr. Allen's cooperation, Mr. Allen alone was in a
position to provide "uniquely personal" benefits to Charter.

Following "a spirited negotiation in which sophisticated
adversaries and their expert advisors bargained with each other
aggressively and in good faith," Charter, the Crossover Committee,
and Mr. Allen agreed to the Allen Settlement.  As part of the
Settlement, Mr. Allen agreed to retain a 35% voting interest in
CCO and a 1% ownership interest in Holdco, and to refrain from
exercising his contractual exchange rights.  In return for these
concessions, Mr. Allen would receive $375 million, of which $180
million was classified as pure settlement consideration.

The Allen Settlement further provided for a "$1.6 billion rights
offering, a stepped-up tax basis in a significant portion of
[Charter's] assets, and the purchase of [Allen's]" preferred
shares in CC VIII, LLC, a Charter subsidiary.  Mr. Allen also
successfully negotiated for a liability release (other third
parties, including the management of Charter, were released as
well).  Under the reorganization Plan that resulted from the Allen
Settlement, the CCI noteholders, represented by LDT, would receive
approximately 32.7% of their claims, and R2 and other equity
holders of CCI would receive nothing.

On Nov. 17, 2009, after a 19-day hearing, the bankruptcy court
overruled all objections and confirmed the Plan as submitted by
Charter.  The following week, the bankruptcy court denied R2 and
LDT's motions for an emergency stay of the confirmation order.
The district court (Sidney H. Stein, Judge, sitting in Part I)
denied a stay pending appeal to that court, and the confirmation
order and the Plan took effect on Nov. 30, 2009.  Charter
immediately took actions under the Plan, including cancelling the
equity issued by the prepetition Charter, issuing shares in the
reorganized Charter, converting notes issued by the prepetition
Charter entities into new notes, and issuing warrants to Charter's
prepetition noteholders.

R2 and LDT objected to the Plan at every stage of these
proceedings.  Before the district court, they raised several
overlapping challenges to the Plan's confirmation.  Their
objections, viewed broadly, related to the Allen Settlement, the
bankruptcy court's valuation of Charter, and compliance with the
Bankruptcy Code's cramdown provisions for approving a plan over
the objections of creditors.  Charter, Mr. Allen, and the
Committee of Unsecured Creditors argued that, whatever the merit
of R2's and LDT's legal claims, the relief they sought could not
be granted without upsetting the already-consummated Plan and that
the doctrine of equitable mootness barred the appeals.

The district court -- and now, the Second Circuit -- agreed and
dismissed the appeals as equitably moot.

The Second Circuit appeals are R2 INVESTMENTS, LDC, Appellant, v.
CHARTER COMMUNICATIONS, INC., CCH I, LLC, CCH I CAPITAL
CORPORATION, CCH II, LLC, CCH II CAPITAL CORPORATION, Debtors-
Appellees, PAUL G. ALLEN, OFFICIAL COMMITTEE OF UNSECURED

                     Equitable Mootness

Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that in the opinion on Aug. 31, the Second Circuit shed
light on the murky doctrine of equitable mootness as grounds for
dismissing an appeal from a confirmation order.  In last week's
23-page opinion, Circuit Judge John M. Walker Jr. agreed the
appeal was moot, although on more narrow grounds.  Judge Walker
began his analysis by addressing a question dividing the courts of
appeal.  Is the lower court's order subject to de novo review or
the abuse of discretion standard?  Judge Walker came down on the
side of abuse of discretion.

The report notes that on the merits, Judge Walker said there is no
per se rule making an appeal moot if confirmation wasn't stayed
pending appeal.  He said the court must "examine the actual
effects of the requested relief" to determine if a successful
appeal would unjustly upset the reorganization plan.  If the
settlement underlying the plan were unlawful, Judge Walker said
that forcing the parties to disgorge "ill-gotten gains" wouldn't
be inequitable.  Similarly, striking releases in favor of third
parties wouldn't be prohibited were the appeal to succeed.

Nonetheless, Judge Walker said granting relief on appeal by
modifying the plan wasn't possible because it would require
"unraveling complex transactions."

Looking at the facts, Judge Walker, the report discloses, said
that taking $180 million away from a settling party would allow
that party to renegotiate the deal.  There being no assurance how
the parties would come out if forced to renegotiate, modifying the
plan on appeal "would throw into doubt the viability of the entire
plan."  Judge Walker was saying in substance that an appellate
court can't simply extract an offending provision from a plan and
allow the remainder to continue.  Rather, if the offending
provision was part of a larger agreement, the parties are entitled
to renegotiate, with the result that the appeal can be mooted.

The Bloomberg report also discloses that Judge Walker also ruled
that rearranging distributions among creditor groups would render
the appeal moot under the equitable mootness doctrine.  Charter's
plan reduced debt by $8 billion and cut annual interest expense by
$830 million.  Charter's plan reinstated $11.8 billion in secured
debt and was funded in part by a $1.6 billion equity rights
offering and $1.7 billion in refinancings.  Existing stock was
canceled while trade suppliers were paid in full.  The stock for
St. Louis-based Charter rose 80 cents on Aug. 31 to $77.80 in
Nasdaq Stock Market trading.

CIRCUS AND ELDORADO: Seeks Vote Disqualification
------------------------------------------------
BankruptcyData.com reports that Circus and Eldorado Joint Venture
filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court a motion for an order
disqualifying the votes of Black Diamond Capital Management and
the vote of any noteholder that opted to reject the Debtors' Plan.
Alternatively, the motion seeks an order allowing the Debtors to
resolicit those noteholders' votes on the Debtors' Plan and
awarding sanctions against Black Diamond in an amount necessary to
compensate the Debtors and their estates for all fees and costs
incurred by estate professionals in connection with Black
Diamond's wrongful conduct and any other amounts the Court deems
appropriate.

The Debtors assert, "In contrast to the Debtors' good faith
efforts to pursue a restructuring within the boundaries of the
Bankruptcy Code and pursuant to a process approved by the Court,
Black Diamond has chosen to attempt to run roughshod over not only
the Debtor's exclusive right to solicit votes to accept the
Debtors' Plan, but also the Court's approved solicitation process,
by improperly -- and without requisite Court approval --
attempting to induce other creditors to reject the Debtors' Plan

                      About Circus and Eldorado

Circus and Eldorado Joint Venture and Silver Legacy Capital Corp.
filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. D. Nev. Case Nos. 12-51156

debtors in the Chapter 11 cases.

The Company did not make the required principal payment of its
10.125% mortgage notes on the maturity date of March 1, 2012.  The
company also elected not to make the scheduled interest payment.

As a result, an aggregate of $142.8 million principal amount of
Notes were outstanding and accrued interest of $7.23 million on
the Notes, as of March 1, 2012, is due and payable.

DEE ALLEN: James C. Bradshaw Withdraws as Bankruptcy Counsel
------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Joel T. Marker of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Utah authorized James C. Bradshaw to withdraw as
counsel for debtor Dee Allen Randall.

Mr. Bradshaw has a limited appearance to litigate and protect
issues relative to Debtor Dee Randall's privileges and other
constitutional rights.  On June 26, 2012, the Debtors previous
counsel, Andres Dias, filed a motion to withdraw as attorney of
record.

According to Mr. Randall, he is without funds or other assets and
is unable to retain counsel to further litigate the issues of
privilege which have been implicated in the proceeding.

The motion was in part necessitated as a result of the actions of
the appointed trustee who has been attempting to recover assets
and has made clear his intention to file suit for recovery against
any entity that has received funds from Mr. Randall.

As reported on the Troubled Company Reporter on July 25, 2012,
1 On 1 Legal Services, P.L.L.C., previously obtained permission
from the Court to withdraw as counsel to Mr.  Randall.  The Debtor
retained the firm to represent him during his bankruptcy case.  In
September 2011, however, a trustee was appointed in the Bankruptcy
Case thereby rendering services by 1 On 1 unnecessary.

                      About Dee Allan Randall

Dee Allen Randall in Kaysville, Utah, filed for Chapter 11
bankruptcy (Bankr. D. Utah Case No. 10-37546) on Dec. 20, 2010, to
forestall creditors while he reorganized his finances.  His
companies include Horizon Mortgage & Investment, Horizon Financial
& Insurance Group and Horizon Auto Funding.  Judge Joel T. Marker
presides over the bankruptcy case.  In his petition, Mr. Randall
estimated $10 million to $50 million in assets and $1 million to
$10 million in debts.

Mr. Randall claims he was conducting a "legal Ponzi scheme," but
authorities are investigating him for possible violations of the
law in an operation that took in $65 million from 700 or so
investors.

Gil A. Miller was appointed as Chapter 11 trustee for Mr.
Randall's bankruptcy estate.

On Oct. 12, 2011, Mr. Miller placed Mr. Randall's corporate
entities -- Horizon Auto Funding, LLC, Independent Commercial
Lending LLC, Horizon Financial Center I LLC, Horizon Mortgage and
Investment Inc. and Horizon Financial & Insurance Group Inc. -- in
bankruptcy by filing separate Chapter 11 petitions (Bankr. D. Utah
Case Nos. 11-34826, 11-34830, 11-34831, 11-34833 and 11-34834).

Judge Joel T. Marker presides over the 2010 and 2011 cases.
Michael R. Johnson, Esq., Brent D. Wride, Esq., and David H.
Leigh, Esq., at Ray Quinney & Nebeker P.C., serve as counsel to
the Chapter 11 Trustee.  Mr. Miller requested for the joint
administration of Mr. Randall's and the corporate Debtors' cases
for procedural purposes.  The trustee hired Fabian & Clendenin as
special counsel.


DELTA PETROLEUM: Asks Clarification on Plan Order for Fees
----------------------------------------------------------
BankruptcyData.com reports that Delta Petroleum Corp. filed with
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court a motion for an order clarifying that
paragraph 43 of the confirmation order for its Third Amended
Chapter 11 Plan permits estate professionals to seek compensation
for services rendered and reimbursement of expenses incurred
through and including the effective date.  The Court confirmed the
Plan on Aug. 16, 2012.  The Court has scheduled a Sept. 18, 2012
hearing on the matter.

The TCR reported on Aug. 20, 2012, Delta Petroleum convinced the
bankruptcy judge to sign a confirmation order approving its
reorganization plan.

Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reported that the plan will create a joint venture with Laramie
Energy II LLC, which will be two-thirds owned by Laramie and one-
third by reorganized Delta.  Laramie won an auction to be the
plan's sponsor.  Delta's lawyer told the judge there's a
possibility that another buyer may step forward with a better
offer.  Delta, the lawyer said, has the right to end the Laramie
agreement as long as the plan hasn't been consummated.
Details on the Laramie arrangement are still being worked out, the
lawyer said, according to the report.

According to the Bloomberg report, holders of $267.7 million in
unsecured note claims were told in disclosure materials that they
may expect to recover between 6% and 11.7% from receiving stock in
reorganized Delta, which will own one-third of the joint venture.
Delta's unsecured creditors, with claims of about $3 million, will
have the same percentage recovery from receipt of stock.

The Bloomberg report added that in addition to stock in the joint
venture, Delta will receive $75 million cash to be used to pay off
about $50 million owing on a loan to finance the Chapter 11 case.
The remainder of the cash will be applied toward expenses of the
Chapter 11 effort.  Delta is contributing all except about
$8 million of its property to the joint venture. Laramie is
contributing selected assets plus $75 million cash.  The
reorganization structure preserves some $885 million in net
operating tax-loss carry forwards for utilization to increase
creditors' recoveries.

The Bloomberg reported relates that the joint venture, to be
called Piceance Energy LLC, will be financed in part with a $400
million revolving credit.  Based in Denver, Laramie develops what
it calls "unconventional gas resources" in the Rocky Mountains.

                        About Delta Petroleum

2012 scheduled maturity of its $38.5 million secured credit
facility with Macquarie Bank Limited and after several months of
unsuccessful attempts to sell the business.  Delta disclosed
$375,498,248 in assets and $310,679,157 in liabilities, which also
include $152,187,500 in outstanding obligations on account of the

DESERT OASIS: Says Estate Fully Administered, Wants Case Closed
---------------------------------------------------------------
Desert Oasis Apartments, LLC, asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the District of Nevada to enter a final decree closing its
Chapter 11 case.

According to the Debtor, the Court entered on Dec. 30, 2011, an
order confirming the Debtor's Amended Plan of Reorganization as
amended.  On Jan. 14, 2012, the Debtor's Plan became effective.

The Debtor also notes that the estate has been fully administered
because most of the factors have been satisfied.

                  About Desert Oasis Apartments

Desert Oasis Apartments LLC owns a garden-style apartment complex
situated across the boulevard from the Mandalay Bay Resort.  The
apartment complex is valued at least $6,500,000.

Secured creditor Wells Fargo set a trustee's sale on the apartment
complex for May 11, 2011, but Desert Oasis sought bankruptcy
protection (Bankr. D. Nev. Case No. 11-17208) the day before the
sale.  Lenard E. Schwartzer, Esq., at Schwartzer & McPherson Law
Firm, serves as the Debtor's bankruptcy counsel.  The Company
disclosed $18,067,242 in assets and $20,291,316 in liabilities as
of the Chapter 11 filing.


DEWEY & LEBOEUF: Citibank Accused of Hiding Firm's Troubles
-----------------------------------------------------------
Peter Lattman at The New York Times' DealBook reports that a
former Dewey & LeBoeuf former partner, Steven P. Otillar, says
Citibank conspired with Dewey's management to hide the law firm's
true financial condition in the months before its collapse.  Mr.
Otillar made the claim in response to a lawsuit brought against
him by Citibank seeking repayment of a $210,000 loan.  The bank
lent Mr. Otillar the money to pay for his capital contribution to
Dewey when he joined the partnership in August 2011. (New partners
typically must make a financial contribution to a law firm when
they join.)

The report notes the filing said that Citibank had extended Mr.
Otillar the loan as part of a fraudulent scheme intended to
benefit Citibank and Dewey's management.  By recruiting him and
other partners to join the financially troubled firm in the months
leading up to its demise -- and collecting millions of dollars
from them -- Dewey's partners enriched themselves and kept the
firm afloat.

The report relays that Mr. Otillar blames Citibank for his ill-
fated career move, saying the bank had a legal obligation to
disclose Dewey's financial state.  He said that he never would
have joined Dewey and taken out a loan from the bank if he had an
accurate picture of the firm's condition.

The report discloses that Mr. Otillar's claim echoes a lawsuit
filed this year by Henry Bunsow, another former partner, that
accused the firm's leadership of running a Ponzi scheme that had
used money contributed from the newly hired to pay existing
partners and finance the imperiled firm.  Like Mr. Otillar, Mr.
Bunsow joined Dewey just months before it filed for bankruptcy.

                       About Dewey & LeBoeuf

New York-based law firm Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP sought Chapter 11
bankruptcy (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 12-12321) to complete the
wind-down of its operations.  The firm had struggled with high
debt and partner defections.  Dewey disclosed debt of US$245

plan and through March 1 of its right to solicit acceptances of
its plan.  A hearing on the motion is set for Sept. 20.

DYNEGY INC: Chevron Drops Objection to Chapter 11 Plan
------------------------------------------------------
Lisa Uhlman at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that Chevron USA Inc.
withdrew its objection to Dynegy Inc. and Dynegy Holdings LLC's
Chapter 11 plan Friday after the parties agreed to add language
saying the plan doesn't affect a settlement they are finalizing in
a $4.7 million contract dispute in Texas.

Bankruptcy Law360 says Chevron is a co-defendant with DH and
certain affiliates in the Texas breach of contract action, and it
has indemnity claims against the debtor in connection with that
suit.

                          About Dynegy

Through its subsidiaries, Houston, Texas-based Dynegy Inc.
(NYSE: DYN) -- http://www.dynegy.com/-- produces and sells
electric energy, capacity and ancillary services in key U.S.
markets.  The power generation portfolio consists of approximately
12,200 megawatts of baseload, intermediate and peaking power
plants fueled by a mix of natural gas, coal and fuel oil.

Dynegy Holdings LLC and four other affiliates of Dynegy Inc.
sought Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Lead Case
No. 11-38111) Nov. 7, 2011, to implement an agreement with a
group of investors holding more than $1.4 billion of senior notes
issued by Dynegy's direct wholly-owned subsidiary, Dynegy
Holdings, regarding a framework for the consensual restructuring
of more than $4.0 billion of obligations owed by DH.  If this
restructuring support agreement is successfully implemented, it
will significantly reduce the amount of debt on the Company's
consolidated balance sheet.  Dynegy Holdings disclosed assets of
$13.77 billion and debt of $6.18 billion.

Dynegy Inc. on July 6, 2012, filed a voluntary petition to
reorganize under Chapter 11 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 12-36728) to
effectuate a merger with Dynegy Holdings, pursuant to Holdings'
Chapter 11 plan.

A settlement, which has already been approved by the bankruptcy
court, provides for Dynegy Inc. and Holdings to merge and for the
administrative claim granted to Dynegy Inc. in the Holdings
Chapter 11 case to be transferred out of Dynegy Inc. for the
benefit of its shareholders.

Dynegy Holdings and its affiliated debtor-entities are represented
in the Chapter 11 proceedings by Sidley Austin LLP as their
reorganization counsel.  Dynegy and its other subsidiaries are
represented by White & Case LLP, who is also special counsel to
the Debtor Entities with respect to the Roseton and Danskammer
lease rejection issues.  The financial advisor is FTI Consulting.

The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors in Holdings' cases
has tapped Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP as counsel.

Dynegy Inc. is represented by White & Case LLP and advised by
Lazard Freres & Co. LLC.


EASTERN LIVESTOCK: Trustee Stays; Plan Outline Hearing on Friday
----------------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Basil H. Lorch, III, denied the requests of The
First Bank and Trust Company and Bluegrass Stockyards to remove
James A. Knauer as Chapter 11 trustee for Eastern Livestock Co.,
LLC.  Mr. Knauer is a partner in the Indianapolis law firm of
Kroger, Gardis & Regas LLP.

In a companion order, the Court denied First Bank's renewed
objections to the employment of Faegre Baker Daniels LLP, fka
Baker & Daniels LLP, as the Chapter 11 Trustee's counsel.  The
Court said the Renewed Objections are improper as they attempt to
resurrect an objection that was finally determined by the February
2011 order approving the firm's employment.

First Bank did not make any loan to or otherwise do business with
ELC.  First Bank has filed two proofs of claim in the Chapter 11
Case asserting two secured claims.  Mr. Knauer has taken the
position that First Bank is not a secured creditor of ELC, and, in
fact, the Trustee contends that First Bank is not a creditor of
ELC at all.

Bluegrass Stockyards and a variety of related entities are
defendants in a pending adversary proceeding commenced by Mr.
Knauer seeking to avoid and recover from the Bluegrass Entities
alleged fraudulent preferential transfers under 11 U.S.C. Sections
547, 548 and 550.  The Trustee contends that proofs of claim filed
by the Bluegrass Entities that assert unsecured claims in the
Chapter 11 Case cannot be allowed because of the effect of Sec.
502(d).  The Bluegrass Entities contest the Trustee's claims.

The Chapter 11 Trustee has filed a proposed chapter 11 plan and
disclosure statement. The disclosure statement is scheduled to be
heard by the Court on Sept. 7, 2012.  In his proposed disclosure
statement, the Trustee projects that under the proposed plan
unsecured creditors who "opt in" and release their claims against
Fifth Third could receive a distribution of $0.40 on the dollar or
more. The Court believes that unsecured creditors in the case may
have a keen interest in receiving a substantial payment on account
of their claims in as prompt a fashion as is feasible.

The Court believes that granting the Motions to Remove the Trustee
would delay by many months the opportunity for creditors to
consider and vote on a Chapter 11 plan of the kind proposed by the
Trustee.  The delay involved in removal of the Trustee and
securing his replacement would be severely prejudicial to the
interests of creditors in the Chapter 11 Case.

A copy of the Court's Aug. 31, 2012 Order denying the bid to
remove the Trustee is available at http://is.gd/2V44H1from
Leagle.com.

EVANS OIL: Taps SS&G Parkland for Restructuring Services
--------------------------------------------------------
Evans Oil Company LLC, et al.,  ask, in an amended application,
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida for
permission to employ SS&G Parkland Consulting, LLC, as successor

FIELDSTONE MORTGAGE: Plan Trust Settles With IRS
------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge James F. Schneider inked his stamp of approval on
a stipulation and order dismissing, with prejudice, the lawsuit,
STEVEN D. SASS, LLC, as Trustee of the FMC PLAN TRUST, Plaintiff,
v. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Defendant, Adv. Proc. No. 12-00321
(Bankr. D. Md.).

The Fieldstone Mortgage Company Plan Trust was created pursuant to
Fieldstone Mortgage Company's Revised Plan of Reorganization to,
inter alia, object to certain claims and make certain
distributions under the Plan.  Steven D. Sass, LLC and Martin
Fletcher, Esq., were appointed as trustees of the Trust.

The Trust has made a number of partial distributions to the
Debtor's former Employees on account of their Allowed Priority
Wage Claims, which claims the Trust asserts are treated as fourth
level priority claims pursuant to section 507(a)(4) of the
Bankruptcy Code.  The Trust asserts that the Allowed Priority Wage
Claims will not be paid in full because the Trust does not have
sufficient funds to pay such claims in full.  The Trust asserts
that the Priority Distributions were made to the Employees
exclusive of applicable wage taxes and withholdings, as required
by the Plan.  The Trust asserts that the Employees' portion of
taxes and withholdings, which were withheld from the Priority
Distributions to the Employees, were paid to the various taxing
authorities pursuant to the terms of the Plan.  The
Debtor's portion of the applicable wage taxes related to the
Priority Distributions, such as Medicare tax and unemployment
insurance, typically due from an employer on its payroll, were not
paid to the various taxing authorities.  The Trust asserts that
the Employer Taxes were not paid to the various taxing
authorities, including the Internal Revenue Service, because such
taxes are treated as eighth level priority claims under section
507(a)(8)(D) of the Bankruptcy Code, and cannot be paid unless the
Allowed Priority Wage Claims are paid in full.

On Jan. 4, 2012, the IRS filed a Notice of Federal Tax Lien
asserting a Tax Lien upon the Trust's assets in favor of the
United States in the amount of $53,769.35 for certain unpaid
Employer Taxes allegedly owed by the Trust to the IRS with respect
to the Priority Distributions.  The IRS advised the Trust that it
was investigating whether Steven D. Sass individually, Mr.
Fletcher, and Chad J. Toms, Esq., the attorney who represented the
Trust in relation to the Priority Distributions, may be held
personally liable for the Employer Taxes allegedly owed by the
Trust to the IRS.

On May 14, 2012, Steven D. Sass LLC, as trustee of the Trust,
initiated the adversary proceeding, seeking, inter alia (1) a
declaration that the Tax Lien placed against the Trust's assets by
the IRS is invalid; (2) a declaration that the filing of the Tax
Lien was a violation of the Injunction Against Interference with
the Plan; (3) a declaration that the filing of the Tax Lien was a
violation of the Plan Injunction; (4) a declaration that the
Plaintiff may distribute Trust assets pursuant to the Plan, free
and clear of the Tax Lien; (5) a declaration that the Trustees and
Trust's counsel are not personally liable to the Defendant or the
IRS for the Employer Taxes; (6) entry of an order removing and
retracting the Tax Lien and Notice of Federal Tax Lien; and (7)
entry of a permanent injunction preventing the IRS from asserting
a lien on any assets of the Trust for the Employer Taxes.

The Defendant has notified the Plaintiff that the IRS has released
the Tax Lien, withdrew the Notice of Federal Tax Lien, and ceased
collection efforts with respect to the Employer Taxes.  The
parties agree the Tax Lien is invalid.  The parties also agree
that the IRS will not assert any lien on the Trust's assets or
take any further action to collect the Employer Taxes from the
Trust; the Trust may make all distributions of Trust assets free
and clear of the Tax Lien in accordance with the terms of the
Plan; Messrs. Sass, Fletcher and Toms, and other professionals
retained by and working for the Trust are not personally
responsible for, and shall have no liability to the Defendant or
the IRS for, payment of the Employer Taxes.  The parties agree to
dismiss the Action.

HEALTH INSURANCE: A.M. Best Raises Fin'l. Strength Rating to 'B'
----------------------------------------------------------------
A.M. Best Co. has upgraded the financial strength rating (FSR) to
B+ (Good) from B (Fair) and issuer credit ratings (ICR) to "bbb-"
from "bb+" for Health Insurance Plan of Greater New York (HIP),
HIP Insurance Company of New York and ConnectiCare, Inc.
(Farmington, CT).

Concurrently, A.M. Best has upgraded the FSR to C+ (Marginal) from
C (Weak) and ICRs to "b-" from "ccc+" for Group Health
Incorporated (GHI) and GHI HMO Select, Inc.  The outlook for all
ratings is stable.  All companies are subsidiaries of
EmblemHealth, Inc. (EmblemHealth) and domiciled in New York, NY,
unless otherwise specified.

The upgrading of the ratings for HIP and ConnectiCare reflect
their continued favorable operating results and strengthening of
their risk-adjusted capitalization through retained earnings.
HIP's favorable operating results mainly are from its Medicare and
state sponsored businesses, and are the main source of earnings
for EmblemHealth in New York State, while ConnectiCare is the main
source of its earnings in Connecticut.

The upgrading of the ratings for HIP Insurance Company of New York
acknowledge the explicit support of its intermediate parent, HIP,
as well as its role as a strategic operating entity for the
organization.

Positive rating movement could occur if HIP continues to record
favorable operating results, reports improved operating results
for its fee-for-service business and improves the quality of
capital for all EmblemHealth subsidiaries.  Negative rating
actions could occur if HIP reports a significant decline in
premium revenue, records large operating losses or experiences
material deterioration of its risk-adjusted capital.

The rating upgrades of GHI and GHI HMO Select recognize their
favorable operating performance, strengthened capitalization and
financial support of their intermediate parent, HIP, as well as
their profitable operating results for the first half of 2012.
GHI's operating results turned profitable in the first quarter of
2012, and its favorable earnings continued into the second quarter
mainly from its Medicare business.  This comes after it reported
significant underwriting losses over the last three years mainly
in its commercial business.  GHI's capitalization remains weak but
has been supplemented through the issuance of surplus notes by
HIP, which A.M. Best believes has a negative impact on its quality
of capital.

Positive rating actions could occur if GHI reports consistently
favorable operating results, shows substantive improvement in its
risk-adjusted capital level and quality and reports improvement in
the operating results from its commercial exclusive provider
organization/preferred provider organization product lines.
Negative rating movement could occur if GHI reports a return to
operating losses, has a significant decline in premium revenue or
experiences deterioration of its risk-adjusted capital.


HUSSEY COPPER: Seeks More Exclusivity as Insurance for Plan
-----------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Hussey Copper Corp., as an insurance policy, filed a
fifth request for an extension of the exclusive right to propose a
reorganization in case the bankruptcy judge doesn't approve the
Chapter 11 plan at the currently scheduled Sept. 6 confirmation
hearing.

According to the report, if approved by the judge at a Sept. 20
hearing, the deadline for a revised plan would be Nov. 1.  Hussey
sold the business for $107.75 million late last year to Libertas
Copper, an affiliate of Patriarch Partners LLC.  The plan was
filed in early May.

                        About Hussey Copper

the leading manufacturers of copper products in the United States.
Hussey Copper was founded in Pittsburgh in 1848.  The Company and

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Stipulation Resolves Banque Cantonale Claims
-------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan approved an agreement
resolving Banque Cantole du Valais' claims against Lehman
Brothers Holdings Inc.

Under the terms of the agreement, Lehman is required to withdraw
its objection to Banque Cantole's claims upon receipt of
documents supporting those claims.

The claims will be disallowed if Banque Cantole fails to turn
over all supporting documents within six months, according to the
deal.  The agreement is available without charge at
http://bankrupt.com/misc/LBHI_StipBanque.pdf

The claims are based on so-called "Lehman programs securities."
Early last year, the company proposed the disallowance of Banque
Cantole's claims because they did not contain "valid blocking
numbers" as required by the bankruptcy court's prior order.

A list of the claims is available without charge at

the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to employ Deloitte Tax LLP to prepare
federal and state tax returns for the year ending Dec. 31, 2011,
and which are due on Sept. 17, 2012.

The Debtors previously requested and obtained authority to employ
the accounting firm of Johnson, Tibodeau, Bottin & Co., P.S.C. to
prepare the same federal and state tax returns.  Johnson recently
informed the Debtors that it would not complete the returns.
Johnson has not incurred any time or expenses in connection with
tax return preparation and the Debtors do not expect Johnson to
submit any request for payment.

The Debtors previously obtained authority to employ Deloitte Tax
for incidental services in connection with the retention of its
affiliate Deloitte Consulting LLP to prepare forms and assist the
Debtors with the termination of their retirement plans.
Preparation of tax returns is outside the scope of work for which
Deloitte Consulting was retained.

Deloitte Tax will be reimbursed for its out-of-pocket expenses and
paid for work performed on an hourly basis.  Deloitte Tax's
professionals will charge hourly rates ranging from $200 to $550.

Mara Proell attests that her firm is a "disinterested person" as
the term is defined in Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code.

MEDIACOPY TEXAS: Appeals Court Can't Introduce Stay Issues
----------------------------------------------------------
Jeremy Heallen at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that Texas' high court
ruled Friday that an appeals court wrongly overturned the actions
of a state receiver appointed to distribute the assets of a
defunct subsidiary of Infodisc Technology Co., finding that the
court couldn't address issues with the automatic stay that were
not presented in the trial court.  The Texas Supreme Court
reinstated a trial court's decision in favor of a court-appointed
receiver and a major creditor of Mediacopy Texas Inc.

                      About Mediacopy Texas

On Sept. 12, 2004, Infodisc Global Holdings Inc. and subsidiary
Mediacopy Texas, Inc. defaulted on loans provided by International
Commercial Bank of China.

Another unit of Infodisc Technology Co., Mediacopy, Inc., filed a
Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition (Bankr. C.D. Calif. Case No. 04-
32508) on Oct. 22, 2004.  The bankruptcy case was dismissed in
December 2005.

On Nov. 30, 2004 -- during the pendency of the bankruptcy
proceedings -- ICBC sued MTI and Infodisc Global in California
state court and sought a receivership for the purpose of
liquidating the collateral.  Reciting an agreement between ICBC,
MTI, and Infodisc Global to liquidate all of the assets, the
California receivership order required the receiver to seize and
sell the assets of MTI and Infodisc Global at its business
locations in California, Nevada, Texas, and Canada.

Davidoff, C. John M. Melissinos, and Claire E. Shin, had intended
to Greenberg Glusker in January 2012 when a majority of the other
attorneys from RHD joined Greenberg Glusker.  However due to a
client conflict, the RHD attorneys representing the Debtor joined
Davidoff Gold LLP until the conflict is resolved.

At that time, the same group of attorneys at RHD who provided
services to the Debtor in connection with the bankruptcy case
moved to DG and when the conflict cleared, on July 1, 2012, they
moved from DG to Greenberg Glusker.  RHD rendered services to the
Debtor from the Petition Date until Jan. 31, 2012, and DG rendered
services from Feb. 1, 2012 until June 30, 2012. Greenberg Glusker
has since been providing services to the Debtor.

The hourly rates of Greenberg Glusker's personnel are:

         Attorneys                   $275 - $725
         Paralegals                   $70 - $230
         Brian L. Davidoff              $590
         C. John M. Melissinos          $450
         Claire E. Shin                 $350

The Debtor also ask that the Court authorize Greenber Glusker to
draw from the client trust account its fees and expenses, in the
same manner as previously allowed to RHD and DG.

Mr. Davidoff, a partner of the law firm of Greenberg Glusker,
assures the Court that the firm is a "disinterested person" as
that term is defined in Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code.

PACIFIC PANORAMA: Case Dismissed After Failing to File Reports
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Lloyd King of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District
of Nevada has ordered the dismissal of the Chapter 11 case of
Pacific Panorama, LLC.

August B. Landis, Acting United States Trustee for Region 17,
sought dismissal of the Chapter 11 case.  The U.S. Trustee said
the Debtor has failed to timely file monthly operating reports and
has failed to discharge its duty to pay quarterly U.S. Trustee
fees assessed.  In addition, Debtor has failed to expeditiously
prosecute this bankruptcy case.

The U.S. Trustee contends that an order directing the appointment
of an examiner is not appropriate because the Debtor, as
representative of its bankruptcy estate, has failed to discharge
obligations assigned by applicable provisions of the Bankruptcy
Code and Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure to the bankruptcy
estate's representative: the timely filing of monthly operating
reports and timely payment of and reporting with respect to,
quarterly U.S. Trustee fees assessed pursuant to 28 U.S.C.
1930(a)(6).

In addition, the U.S. Trustee believes the appointment of a
chapter 11 trustee pursuant to Section 1104(a) does not appear to
be appropriate because there is not sufficient evidence to suggest
that the Debtor's reorganization through means other than,
perhaps, a liquidation of the Debtor's assets is possible.  The
Acting United States Trustee said that, if the Court is inclined
to order the appointment of a chapter 11 trustee for the sole
purpose of liquidating the Debtor's assets, any liquidation of
Debtor's assets should take place under the expedited liquidation
procedures available under chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code.
Conversion of the Debtor's case to a case under chapter 7,
therefore, is the more appropriate alternative remedy in lieu of
the appointment of a chapter 11 trustee.

Las Vegas, Nevada-based Pacific Panorama LLC filed for Chapter 11
bankruptcy protection on Jan. 29, 2010 (Bankr. D. Nev. Case No.
10-11464).  The Company listed $10 million to $50 million in
assets and $1 million to $10 million in liabilities.


PALISADES 6300: Ch. 11 Case Fully Administered, Wants Case Closed

Palisades 6300 West Lake Mead, LLC asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the District of Nevada to enter a final decree closing the
case effective July 31, 2012.

A Sept. 5, 2012, hearing at 2 p.m. has been set.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on July 24, 2012, the
Debtor has a confirmed Chapter 11 plan that cancels receivership
proceedings for its property, gives the Debtor 10 years to pay
secured creditor U.S. Bank in full, and allows the existing owners
to retain control of the property.

The Plan says the Debtor's property is worth $17.2 million.
The property at West Lake Mead Boulevard in Las Vegas has 280
residential units.

US Bank, owed for a promissory note issued prepetition, will have
an allowed claim of $14.67 million as of June 1, 2012, to be
reduced by cash collateral payments of $100,000.  On the effective
date of the Plan, the Debtor agreed to make a principal pay down
of 4400,000 from cash on hand, and $199,7000 from a trust account.
For the remaining amount, U.S. Bank's loan and note will be
extended 10 years, payable at 4.65% interest-only for three years,
then principal and interest at 4.65% for seven years beginning in
year four and amortized over 30 years.  Monthly payments will be
made and a balloon payment of the balance due will be made in
10 years.

Confirmation hearings began in April.  Bankruptcy Judge Linda B.
Riegle entered the order May 30, 2012.

PATRIOT COAL: Senior Noteholders Also Oppose Venue Transfer
-----------------------------------------------------------
BankruptcyData.com reports that numerous parties -- including the
ad hoc consortium of senior noteholders comprised of institutions
collectively holding approximately $100.6 million (or 40.2%) of
the 8.25% Senior Notes due 2018 -- filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court joinders to the motion of Patriot Coal and its official
committee of unsecured creditors' objections to the motion seeking
a venue transfer for the Chapter 11 case.

The noteholders assert, "The Ad Hoc Consortium respectfully
submits that its views on this matter should be given substantial
weight by the Court. With more than $100 million in unsecured
claims (against all 99 Debtors), the Ad Hoc Consortium may be the
largest organized unsecured creditor consortium in the case. Its
members are located in New York, Connecticut, Wisconsin,
California, Florida, and Minnesota, and its counsel is located in
New York. For this creditor constituency, New York is a far more
convenient forum than the Southern District of West Virginia."

PATRIOT COAL: Taps Thompson Coburn for Lawsuits Against Customers
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Patriot Coal Corporation, et al., ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court

Thompson Coburn LLC as special counsel.

The Debtors have two lawsuits pending against customers who
breached their purchase obligations to the Debtors under the
applicable coal supply agreements.  Thompson Coburn represents the
Debtors in each of these actions.  Furthermore, it is possible
that other contractual disputes with customers will arise during
the pendency of these Chapter 11 cases, and the Debtors may
wish to retain Thompson Coburn to represent them in the disputes.

Thompson Coburn will, among other things:

   a) advise the Debtors and represent them, as needed, in any
      other disputes relating to any customer's failure to meet
      its obligations set forth in the parties' coal supply
      contracts, including but not limited to representing the
      Debtors in negotiations, alternative dispute resolution
      and/or litigation against customers that are or are likely
      to be in breach of their contractual obligations to the
      Debtors; and

   b) review and analyze coal sale contracts to identify issues,
      if any, arising from the filing of these Chapter 11 cases
      and advise the Debtors as to the same.

Roman Wuller, a partner of Thompson Coburn, tells the Court that

from the rates that Thompson Coburn customarily charges other
clients.  As of the Petition Date, the standard rates for

Debtors for prepetition services rendered by Thompson Coburn
totaling $13,991.

PEREGRINE DEVELOPMENT: Artman Creative Tapped as Site Planner
-------------------------------------------------------------
Peregrine Development, LLC, has sought and obtained approval from
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to employ Arthur James, III, d/b/a
Artman Creative R+D, as a site plan designer.

According to papers filed in Court in May, the Debtor required the
services of Artman Creative to preserve revenue from Kid
Structures, Inc., which leases a building from the Debtor.  The
leased building was on the Debtor's real property before the sale.
After the sale, the real property on which the building is located
was transferred to the State of Texas.  The Debtor must remove the
building from the real property sold to the State of Texas in the
near future.  In order to preserve Kid Structures tenancy, the
Debtor must obtain approval from the City of Lewisville to erect a
mobile sales office on the Debtor's real property from which Kid
Structures can conduct business operations.  The Debtor must
include a site plan with its request to the City to obtain the
City's approval.  Without a site plan and approval from the City,
the Debtor could lose Kid Structures as a tenant, and the monthly
rent paid by Kid Structures of $5,500.

The Court approved the hiring of Artman Creative in a May 31
order.  The scope of services to be provided by Artman Creative
included the drafting of a site plan of the Debtor's real property
that demonstrates the relocation of Kid Structures, and removal of
the Debtor's building leased by Kid Structures from the real
property sold to the State of Texas.

Artman Creative estimated that total costs to complete the tasks,
including the Site Plan, would be $4,400.  Artman Creative's
compensation structure included:

   a. A flat fee for services totaling $4,200, with $2,200
      due upon approval of the Application, and $2,000 due upon
      completion and delivery of the services;

   b. Expenses totaling $200; and

   c. Any further fees (billed hourly at $125 per hour) and
      expenses to be approved by the Debtor prior to being
      incurred by Artman Creative.

The Debtor acknowledged that Artman Creative is not a
"disinterested person" as defined by Section 101(14).  Artman
Creative is both a creditor of the Debtor and insider as those
terms are defined by the Bankruptcy Code.  Nonetheless, the Debtor
said the retention of Artman Creative is in the best interest of
the Debtor's estate and in the best interest of creditors.

In June, Peregrine Development obtained approval from the
Bankruptcy Court to employ Daniel "Corky" Sherman to serve as
chief reorganization officer.  The CRO is assisting the Debtor in
making certain business decisions. The Debtors' co-managers agreed
to tap a CRO following mediation.  The Debtors agreed to amend
their plan to set forth the CRO mechanism as the management
structure for the Debtor going forward after confirmation.

Peregrine Development, LLC, in Lewisville, Texas, owns undeveloped
real property in Denton County, Texas where retail and commercial
development continues to occur.  The Company filed for Chapter 11
bankruptcy protection (Bankr. E.D. Tex. Case No. 11-41449) on
May 3, 2011, represented by Michael R. Rochelle, Esq., and Eric M
Van Horn, Esq., at Rochelle McCullough L.L.P.  In its petition,
the Debtor estimated $10 million to $50 million in assets and
$1 million to $10 million in debts.  The petition was signed by
Arthur James, II, manager.

As reported in the Aug. 14, 2012 edition of the Troubled Company
Reporter, there's a hearing Oct. 4 at 10:00 a.m. to consider:

     -- confirmation of the Chapter 11 plan for the Debtor that
        was proposed by Buckaroo Partners, L.P., Arthur James II,
        and Tom James and Arthur James III;

     -- a motion to convert the Chapter 11 case to Chapter 7 by
        Tom James and Arthur James III;

     -- a motion by the U.S. Trustee to have a Chapter 11 trustee
        replace management, and

     -- a motion by the Debtor for determination that
        modifications to the Plan won't adversely change treatment
        of any creditor or interest holder.

The hearing was originally scheduled in July but was moved
following an agreed motion for continuance that was presented by
the parties.

Buckaroo Partners, L.P, the co-manager of the Debtor, led the
formulation of the Plan.  The disclosure statement explaining the
Plan, which was conditionally approved at a hearing May 29, 2012,
says that all holders of allowed general unsecured claims will be
paid in full with interest within 5 years of the effective date,
and equity holders will retain their interests.  The Debtor has
already paid off creditors from the sale of property affected by
the construction of a flyover connecting SH 121 to I-35E.


PEREGRINE FINANCIAL: No Raise Just Yet for Chief Inside Lawyer
--------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that the trustee for Peregrine Financial Group Inc. was
given authority by the bankruptcy court last week to continue
operating the business until Nov. 12, although he wasn't
immediately given permission to bestow a $20,000 raise on inside
General Counsel Rebecca Wing who's already making $380,000 a year.

According to the report, the bankruptcy judge will resume the
hearing today, Sept. 5, on Ms. Wing's raise.  Customers objected
to paying her more.

                     About Peregrine Financial

Peregrine Financial Group Inc. filed to liquidate under Chapter 7
of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code (Bankr. N.D. Ill. Case No. 12-27488)
on July 10, 2012, disclosing between $500 million and $1 billion
of assets, and between $100 million and $500 million of
liabilities.

Earlier that day, at the behest of the U.S. Commodity Futures
Trading Commission, a U.S. district judge appointed a receiver and
froze the firm's assets.  The firm put itself into bankruptcy
liquidation in Chicago later the same day.  The CFTC had sued
Peregrine, saying that more than $200 million of supposedly
segregated customer funds had been "misappropriated."  The CFTC
case is U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission v. Peregrine
Financial Group Inc., 12-cv-5383, U.S. District Court, Northern

POTOMAC BUSINESS: Can Use IRS, Yellowstone Cash Through Oct. 10
---------------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Robert A. Gordon signed off on a Fifth Interim
Consent Order that permits Potomac Business Environments, LLC, the
continued use of cash collateral from Sept. 1 through and
including Oct. 10, 2012.

The Internal Revenue Service asserts federal tax liens on the
Debtor's property to secure unpaid taxes, penalties and interest
owed by the Debtor.  The IRS has filed a secured claim of
$129,634.

Yellowstone Capital, LLC, also asserts a lien on cash collateral
by virtue of a UCC-1 recorded on June 3, 2011 in the approximate
amount of $75,956.

The Debtor disputes that any lien of the IRS or Yellowstone
attaches to funds garnished pursuant to a Writ of Garnishment
issued by the Circuit Court for Baltimore County in civil action
03-C-11-005620 and recovered post-petition as a preferential
transfer from the Debtor's former landlord and a creditor, Merritt
MS1, LLC.

The Debtor lacks sufficient unencumbered cash or other assets with
which to continue to operate its business in Chapter 11.  The
Debtor requires continued authority to use Cash Collateral pending
a final hearing or entry of a final order to continue to operate
its business without interruption toward the objective of
formulating an effective plan of reorganization.

The IRS and Yellowstone have agreed on the interim use of cash
collateral, including an Interim Budget.

A final hearing on the use of cash collateral is set for Oct. 10,
2012 at 2:00 p.m. in Courtroom 1-B of the United States Bankruptcy
Court for the District of Maryland.

RENEGADE HOLDINGS: Gov't Wants Money Escrowed for Excise Tax Issue
------------------------------------------------------------------
Richard Craver at Winston-Salem Journal reports that the U.S.
Justice Department has filed another objection to the proposed
bankruptcy reorganization plan of three Mocksville tobacco
companies.

According to the report, the department's Alcohol Tobacco Tax and
Trade Bureau said in a filing Friday that the disclosure statement
for Renegade Holdings Inc., Renegade Tobacco Co., and Alternative
Brands Inc. does not set aside enough money to handle an excise
tax dispute.

The report notes U.S. District Judge William Stocks on Aug. 10
approved the disclosure by Peter Tourtellot, trustee for the three
companies.  Mr. Tourtellot filed the statement May 28, amended it
July 20 and modified it again Aug. 10.  Judge Stocks set Oct. 9 as
the hearing date for confirmation of the plan, the report adds.

The report says the federal bureau's filing is just the latest
version of its objection, which is shared by the National
Association of Attorneys General.  The report notes they disagree
with Mr. Tourtellot over the amount of federal excise tax
Alternative Brands would owe related to its large cigar products.
According to the report, the dispute is scheduled to be heard in
the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina.
Mr. Tourtellot has filed motions saying no escrow or reserve is
warranted.

According to the report, the bureau says Alternative owes at least
$3.85 million in excise tax liabilities as of May 31, which does
not include potential penalties and interest.  Mr. Tourtellot has
said the company does not owe that amount.

The report relates Mr. Tourtellot's plan for paying the companies'
financial obligations includes pooling at least $15 million into a
liquidation trust and resolving the legal responsibilities,
including ousting Calvin Phelps as owner.

According to the report, creditors approved Renegade's initial
reorganization plan in June 2010.  That plan also was opposed by
the attorneys general group, which represents 16 states, including
North Carolina.  In July 2010, Judge Stocks vacated the plan and
put the companies back into bankruptcy.  He based that decision on
hearing a presentation by the attorneys general about a criminal
investigation in Mississippi involving Mr. Phelps and accusations
of "unlawful trafficking in cigarettes and other related crimes,"
the report recounts.

The report relates Mr. Tourtellot has said Judge Stocks vacated
the first reorganization plan because creditors were not fully
informed of the Phelps criminal investigation and how it could
affect the companies' finances.  Those details are included in the
second disclosure statement.

The report adds the plan would allow the firms to continue
operations after exiting bankruptcy and for their financial
obligations to be paid within four years of their exit.  It would
keep control initially in Mr. Tourtellot's hands rather than
selling the companies to a third party, which the association
prefers.  There would be new equity created for the companies that
Mr. Tourtellot would control until the equity is sold to investors
or distributed to key company managers, or both.

                      About Renegade Holdings

Renegade Holdings and two subsidiaries -- Alternative Brands, Inc.
and Renegade Tobacco Company -- filed for Chapter 11 protection
(Bankr. M.D.N.C. Lead Case No. 09-50140) on Jan. 28, 2009, and
exited bankruptcy on June 1, 2010.  They were put back into
bankruptcy July 19, 2010, when Judge William L. Stocks vacated the
reorganization plan, in part because of a criminal investigation
of owner Calvin Phelps and the companies regarding what
authorities called "unlawful trafficking of cigarettes."

Alternative Brands is a federally licensed manufacturer of tobacco
products consisting primarily of cigarettes and cigars.  Renegade
Tobacco distributes the tobacco products produced by ABI through
wholesalers and retailers in 19 states and for export.  ABI also
is a contract fabricator for private label brands of cigarettes
and cigars which are produced for other licensed tobacco
manufacturers.

The stock of RHI is owned indirectly by Calvin A. Phelps through
his ownership of the stock of Compliant Tobacco, LLC which, in
turn, owns all of the stock of RHI which in turn owns all of the
stock of RTC and ABI.  Mr. Phelps was the chief executive officer
of all three companies. All three of the Debtors' have their
offices and production facilities in Mocksville, North Carolina.

In August 2010, the Bankruptcy Court approved the appointment of
Peter Tourtellot, managing director of turnaround-management
company Anderson Bauman Tourtellot Vos & Co., as Chapter 11
trustee.

RESIDENTIAL CAPITAL: PHH Mortgage Seeks to Pursue Foreclosure
-------------------------------------------------------------
PHH Mortgage Corp. asked the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York to lift the automatic stay to allow
the foreclosure of real properties.

The automatic stay is an injunction that halts actions by
creditors against a company in bankruptcy protection.

PHH is the holder of mortgages on three real properties located
in Florida, Missouri and Indiana.  A foreclosure title search,
however, showed that there is a second lien mortgage on the
Florida property held by GMAC Mortgage LLC as well as on the two
other properties, which is held by Homecomings Financial LLC.

GMAC and Homecomings are affiliates of Residential Capital LLC,
which are both in bankruptcy protection.

A court hearing to consider approval of PHH Mortgages request is

RESIDENTIAL CAPITAL: SEC Starts Probe on Possible Fraud
-------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission formally commenced
investigation Residential Capital, LLC, for possible misconduct
in loan originations and underwriting, and possible fraud in the
sale of mortgage-backed securities, according to various news
reports.

The SEC began the investigation in February to look into ResCap's
mortgage-backed securities programs, which were at the heart of
the 2008 financial crisis, according to Dave Carpenter of
Businessweek.  Complaint against ResCap were filed by the SEC in
a federal district court in Los Angeles, Mr. Carpenter said.

Mr. Carpenter said the court filing was part of the SEC's request
to force R.R. Donnelley & Sons Co. to hand over documents it
drafted on behalf of the banks that underwrote the securities.
The federal agency subpoenaed Donnelley in June after the printer
refused to fully comply with the subpoena, claiming that it would
expose itself to potential liability by disclosing the names of
individual borrowers, the report related.

RG STEEL: Liquidates Assets; Leaves Worker Without Jobs
-------------------------------------------------------
Linda Harris at Herald Star reports that RG Steel chose to
liquidate, rather than reorganize, leaving its workers -- many of
them laid off two years or more -- without jobs and benefits.

According to the report, with bankruptcy court approval, RG Steel
auctioned its holdings in Ohio, West Virginia and Maryland off.
The Mingo Junction operation sold for $20 million to Frontier
Industrial, a New York-based company that specializes in salvage
and brownfield development, though company officials said they're
willing to consider proposals to operate certain parts of the
property, including the $250 million electric arc furnace as well
as the continuous caster and 80-inch hot strip mill.

The report relates RG Steel's Yorkville plant sold for roughly
$5 million to Sewickley, Pa.-based Esmark Inc. and South Korea's
TCC Steel, though closing on that deal has been delayed by RG
Steel's failure during the past two years to properly correct and
document problems with pickling-liquor spills at the plant.

Esmark also acquired RG Steel's 50% ownership stake in
Ohio Coatings.

The report says wheeling businessman W. Quay Mull, meanwhile,
picked up the Martins Ferry plant, which he's said he intends to
operate, for $2 million, while RG's Warren operation sold for
$17 million to a Pennsylvania-based salvage company that also has
indicated an interest in operating it.  RG Steel's Sparrows Point,
Md., plant was sold at auction for $72 million to Hilco
Industrial.

The report adds the 100-acre Steubenville plant sold in June to
River Rail Development, an arm of the Wheeling-based salvage and
recycling company, Herman Strauss Inc.  No buyer has emerged for
RG Steel's 50% ownership stake in Mountain State Carbon, the
Follansbee coke-making operation that's a joint venture with
Russia's Severstal.

                          About RG Steel

RG Steel LLC -- http://www.rg-steel.com/-- is the United States'
fourth-largest flat-rolled steel producer with annual steelmaking
capacity of 7.5 million tons. It was formed in March 2011
following the purchase of three steel facilities located in
Sparrows Point, Maryland; Wheeling, West Virginia and Warren,
Ohio, from entities related to Severstal US Holdings LLC. RG
Steel also owns finishing facilities in Yorkville and Martins
Ferry, Ohio. It also owns Wheeling Corrugating Company and has a
50% ownership in Mountain State Carbon and Ohio Coatings Company.

RG Steel along with affiliates, including WP Steel Venture LLC,
sought bankruptcy protection (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case No. 12-
11661) on May 31, 2012, to pursue a sale of the business. The
bankruptcy was precipitated by liquidity shortfall and a dispute
with Mountain State Carbon, LLC, and a Severstal affiliate, that
restricted the shipment of coke used in the steel production
process.

The Debtors estimated assets and debts in excess of $1 billion as
of the Chapter 11 filing. The Debtors owe (i) $440 million,
including $16.9 million in outstanding letters of credit, to
senior lenders led by Wells Fargo Capital Finance, LLC, as
administrative agent, (ii) $218.7 million to junior lenders, led
by Cerberus Business Finance, LLC, as agent, (iii) $130.5 million
on account of a subordinated promissory note issued by majority
owner The Renco Group, Inc., and (iv) $100 million on a secured
promissory note issued by Severstal. RG Steel LLC disclosed
$1,293,320,461 in assets and $1,050,005,993 in liabilities as of
the Chapter 11 filing.

Judge Kevin J. Carey presides over the case.

The Debtors are represented in the case by Robert J. Dehney, Esq.,

ROBERTS HOTELS: Bank of America Withdraws Motion for Stay Relief
----------------------------------------------------------------
Bank of America, N.A., notifies the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Eastern District of Missouri that it has withdrawn its motion for
relief of stay, or in the alternative, terminate plan exclusivity
of Roberts Hotels Houston, LLC, et al.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on July 13, 2012,
Bank of America pointed out that The Fifth Circuit Court of
Appeals noted that the vast majority of chapter 11 cases do not
end with confirmed plans of reorganization (Timbers of Inwood
Forest Assocs., Ltd., 808 F.2d 363, 373 n.17 (5th Cir. 1987).).

Bank of America claims that the Debtors' Chapter 11 cases are
doomed to fail.  BofA says dissipating collateral, no financing
source, and stagnant bankruptcy cases constitute grounds for the
Court to lift the automatic stay pursuant to Bankruptcy Code
Sections 362(d)(1) and (d)(2) or alternatively to terminate plan
exclusivity.

BofA, owed by the Debtors $34.28 million in principal, notes that
the Debtors are continuing in the management of their six hotels.
But BofA says its collateral is suffering from the Debtors' lack
of management.  It points out that the Houston Hotel, the Tampa
Hotel, and Spartanburg Hotel are closed and are no longer
operating.  The Atlanta Hotel is operating at a loss.  Shreveport
Hotel will need an infusion of cash by August 2012.  Houston Hotel
had suffered significant damage approximately a month prior to the
bankruptcy filing when a nearby water main burst.  The receiver
reported that the Tampa Hotel needs essential utilities and
repairs.

BofA said it negotiated with the Debtors towards a DIP financing,
but the Debtors refuse to agree with a condition that they release
BofA from any claims.  With no potential for a DIP Credit
Agreement and having no unencumbered assets to support additional
financing, Debtors have no means to fund a plan of reorganization,
BofA asserts.

SCO GROUP: Converted to Chapter 7; Continues Suit Against IBM
-------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that the Chapter 11 case for software developer SCO Group
Inc. was converted in August to a liquidation in Chapter 7 so a
trustee can continue prosecution of an unfair competition suit in
U.S. District Court in Utah against International Business
Machines Corp.

According to the report, the conversion to Chapter 7 was made at
the request of the Chapter 11 trustee who said there is
insufficient cash to pay expenses of Chapter 11 case.  Now named
TSC Group Inc., the company sold the Unix system software products
and services business to unXis Inc. for $600,000 cash and warrants
for 3% of its stock.

SMF ENERGY: Committee Can Hire Bast Amron to Probe D&O Claims
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Bankruptcy Court has entered an order granting in part, and
denying in part, without, prejudice, the request of the Official
Committee of Unsecured Creditors of SMF Energy Corporation and its
affiliates to retain Brett M. Amron, Esq., and Bast Amron LLP, as
its special litigation counsel.

The Court's order said the retention is approved pursuant to
11 U.S.C. Sections 327 and 330, nunc pro tunc to July 13, 2012, to
represent the Committee as the "investigation" of claims against
present and former officers and/or directors of the Debtors on an
hourly fee basis.

The remainder of the relief sought in the Committee's application
is denied, without prejudice to either the Committee or the
liquidating trustee appointed under any confirmed plan filing a
renewed application to retain the firm to prosecute D&O claims on
a contingency fee of no greater than 35%, and with a credit to the
estate of 50% of fees incurred and paid in the investigation phase
of the firm's engagement against the contingency fee.

As reported in the July 3, 2012 issue of the Troubled Company
Reporter, the Committee's application proposed to retain Bast
Amron on these terms:

   (a) Investigation - Bast Amron will be paid on an hourly fee
       basis while investigating potential claims against the
       directors and officers of the Debtors through the date of
       service of any written demand.  Bast Amron will also be
       entitled to reimbursement of any out-of-pocket expenses.
       Bast Amron's hourly fees and out-of-pocket expenses will be
       submitted for approval by the Court under the procedures
       governing other professionals then in place.

   (b) Commencement and Prosecution - Should the Committee obtain
       standing and determine that those claims are to be
       prosecuted, from and after service of a written
       demand, Bast Amron has agreed to be compensated on a
       contingency fee basis, earning 35% of the gross recoveries
       resulting from any services performed, plus reimbursement
       of out-of-pocket expenses, including any expert witness
       fees.  Bast Amron will be permitted to seek reimbursement
       of any such expenses under the procedures governing other
       professionals then in place.

   (c) Credit - 50% of any Hourly Fees earned and paid to
       Bast Amron for the Investigation will be credited against
       the Contingency Fee.

Prior to being chosen to represent the Committee as special
litigation counsel, Bast Amron represented and continues to
represent Chevron Products Company, a creditor of the Debtors.
Therefore, Bast Amron does not meet the definition of
"disinterestedness" in Section 101 of the Bankruptcy Code.  Even
so, as special litigation counsel, Bast Amron does not believe
that strict "disinterestedness" is required, only that there be no
conflicts of interest in connection with the particular
engagement, a standard that Bast Amron asserts it successfully
meets.

                         About SMF Energy

trucking, manufacturing and construction industries, and three of

Inc.  Fort Lauderdale, Florida-based SMF Energy -- dba Streicher
Mobile Fueling and SMF Generator Fueling Services -- disclosed
$37.0 million in assets and $25.17 million in liabilities as of
Dec. 31, 2011.

SMF sought bankruptcy protection after Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.,
shut off access to a revolving credit loan and declared a default.
The bank is owed $11.2 million, including $8 million on a
revolving credit secured by all assets.  SMF Energy disclosed
$16,387,456 in assets and $31,160,009 in liabilities as of the
Chapter 11 filing.

On March 22, 2012, the Company appointed Soneet Kapila of Kapila &
Company, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, as its chief restructuring
officer.

Judge Raymond B. Ray oversees the case.  Lawyers at Genovese
Joblove & Battista, P.A., serves as the Debtors' counsel.  Trustee
Services Inc. serves as claims agent.  Bayshore Partners, LLC,

The Debtors tapped Harry Stampler and Stampler Auctions for the
sale and liquidation of the assets of the Debtors located at 200
West Cypress Creek Road, Suite 400, Fort Lauderdale, Florida
through an auction sale scheduled for July 19, 2012, at the
Property.

Steven R. Turner, the Assistant U.S. Trustee 21, appointed three
members to the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors.  Robert
Paul Charbonneau and the law firm of Ehrenstein Charbonneau
Calderin represent the creditors.

The Debtors entered an agreement for Sun Coast Resources to
acquire assets associated with the business of the Debtors in
their various operating locations in the State of Texas for $4
million, absent higher and better offers.  The Texas assets
yielded no competing bids from other parties.  Competing bids were
submitted with respect to the assets and vehicle outside Texas,
under which Sun Coast was also the stalking horse bidder with a
total offer of $5 million.  The auction raised the value of the
assets by $1.75 million.  The sales, which closed in June,
generated $10.75 million.

The Debtors in August filed a Plan of liquidation.  Wells Fargo
Bank N.A., the secured lender, has been partly paid from the sale
proceeds, pursuant to the cash collateral order.  Holders of
unsecured claims estimated to total $5.7 million will recover up
to 70%.  Each holder of an unsecured claim not more than $1,000 or
who elect to reduce the claim to $1,000 will recover 100% in cash
on the effective date. Holders of equity interests will only
receive distributions after claimants are paid in full.

from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to employ, nunc pro tunc to June
20, 2012, Anthony M. Palermo, CPA, and Ahearn Jasco & Company to
audit the 401k Plan for the years ending Dec. 31, 2011 and 2012 in
compliance with the annual reporting obligation under the Employee
Retirement Income Security Act of 1974.

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

AJC's hourly rates range from $60 to $390 an hour.

AJC estimates that it will cost roughly $8,500 to perform the 2011
audit of the 401k Plan.  However, if access is not permitted and
AJC is required to re-audit the 2010 statement of net assets
available for the benefits of the 401k Plan, AJC estimates that
its fees for professional services for the 2011 audit would be
roughly $9,750.

                         About SMF Energy

SMF Energy Corporation, a provider of fuel and lubricants for the
trucking, manufacturing and construction industries, and three of
its subsidiaries filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. S.D. Fla.
Lead Case No. 12-19084) on April 15, 2012.  The affiliates are SMF
Services, Inc., H&W Petroleum Company, Inc., and Streicher Realty,
Inc.  Fort Lauderdale, Florida-based SMF Energy -- dba Streicher
Mobile Fueling and SMF Generator Fueling Services -- disclosed
$37.0 million in assets and $25.17 million in liabilities as of
Dec. 31, 2011.

SMF sought bankruptcy protection after Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.,
shut off access to a revolving credit loan and declared a default.
The bank is owed $11.2 million, including $8 million on a
revolving credit secured by all assets.  SMF Energy disclosed
$16,387,456 in assets and $31,160,009 in liabilities as of the
Chapter 11 filing.

On March 22, 2012, the Company appointed Soneet Kapila of Kapila &
Company, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, as its chief restructuring
officer.

Judge Raymond B. Ray oversees the case.  Lawyers at Genovese
Joblove & Battista, P.A., serves as the Debtors' counsel.  Trustee
Services Inc. serves as claims agent.  Bayshore Partners, LLC,
serves as their investment banker.  The petition was signed by
Soneet R. Kapila, the CRO.

The Debtors tapped Harry Stampler and Stampler Auctions for the
sale and liquidation of the assets of the Debtors located at 200
West Cypress Creek Road, Suite 400, Fort Lauderdale, Florida
through an auction sale scheduled for July 19, 2012, at the
Property.

Steven R. Turner, the Assistant U.S. Trustee 21, appointed three
members to the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors.  Robert
Paul Charbonneau and the law firm of Ehrenstein Charbonneau
Calderin represent the creditors.

The Debtors entered an agreement for Sun Coast Resources to
acquire assets associated with the business of the Debtors in
their various operating locations in the State of Texas for $4
million, absent higher and better offers.  The Texas assets
yielded no competing bids from other parties.  Competing bids were
submitted with respect to the assets and vehicle outside Texas,
under which Sun Coast was also the stalking horse bidder with a
total offer of $5 million.  The auction raised the value of the
assets by $1.75 million.  The sales, which closed in June,
generated $10.75 million.

The Debtors in August filed a Plan of liquidation.  Wells Fargo
Bank N.A., the secured lender, has been partly paid from the sale
proceeds, pursuant to the cash collateral order.  Holders of
unsecured claims estimated to total $5.7 million will recover up
to 70%.  Each holder of an unsecured claim not more than $1,000 or
who elect to reduce the claim to $1,000 will recover 100% in cash
on the effective date. Holders of equity interests will only
receive distributions after claimants are paid in full.


SMF ENERGY: Hires Sentinel Benefits; To Terminate Retirement Plan
-----------------------------------------------------------------
SMF Energy Corporation, et al., ask for the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
to enter an order authorizing their employment of Sentinel
Benefits & Financial Group, nunc pro tunc to April 25, 2012, and
authorizing the Debtors, through Sentinel, to terminate the
Debtors retirement plan and/or 401k Plan.

Lisa Jones attests that the firm is a "disinterested person" as
the term is defined in Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code.

Given the liquidation of the Debtors' business and the fact that
substantially all of the Debtors' assets have been or will be
sold, the Debtors seek to employ Sentinel to terminate the
Debtors' 401k Plan.

As a result of the pending Chapter 11 cases, the Debtors have
requested that Sentinel render services necessary to terminate the
Debtors' 401k Plan under Sec. 704(a)(11) of the Bankruptcy Code
and other applicable law, including the Employee Retirement Income
Security Act of 1974.

Prior to the Petition Date, Sentinel served as the third-party
administrator of the 401k Plan and therefore is best suited to
assist the Debtors with fulfilling their obligations to
administer, and specifically to terminate, the 401k Plan pursuant
to the Bankruptcy Code.

As of July 25, 2012, the 401k Plan had 41 total participants and
$403,358 in allocated assets.  Of the Plan Participants, 23 are
active, 4 are active with no 401k Plan account balance, and 14 are
active but not contributing to their 401k Plan account.

Additionally, there is currently $3,657 in total outstanding loans
held by three of the Plan Participants.  Therefore, the total
contracted assets for the 401k Plan is $407,015.  Further,
according to Sentinel's books and records for the 401k Plan, there
are no funding deficiencies with respect to the 401k Plan and
there are no employer contributions owed.

Pursuant to the Retention Letter and as required by law, Sentinel
requests authorization to take the following steps necessary to
terminate the 401k Plan, which include but are not limited to:

  (a) Choosing a termination date and advising employees to select
      a date certain to discontinue contributions to their 401k
      Plan account on or prior to the chosen termination date;

  (b) Drafting a Plan Termination Amendment to the 401k Plan, for
      review and execution by the 401k Plan Trustee, Tim Shaw;

  (c) Reviewing the Discontinuance Paperwork provided from the
      401k Plan Records Keeper and Custodian, John Hancock, and
      advising the Trustee, after review and consideration, to
      execute the Discontinuance Paperwork;

  (d) Authorizing the Custodian to mail all Plan Participants the
      necessary paperwork to be completed to provide participants
      the option to elect a cash distribution from their 401k Plan
      account or to "roll over" their account balance into a new
      or other qualified retirement account;

  (e) Completing the final mandatory compliance testing for the
      401k Plan before issuing final distributions to plan
      participants and/or rolling over account balances into new
      or other qualified retirement accounts; and

  (f) All other actions necessary to effectuate a termination of
      the 401k Plan in accordance with ERISA, the Bankruptcy Code
      and all other applicable law.

Sentinel will bill the Debtors at an initial flat fee rate of
$1,000, plus an hourly rate of $150 for any additional data
collection services provided with respect to years during which
Sentinel did not provide record keeping services to the Debtors.

Sentinel reserves the right to increase its hourly rates in
accordance with its normal and customary business practices.

Sentinel will seek compensation for the services of each
professional and paraprofessional acting on behalf of the Debtors
in the Chapter 11 cases at the then-current rate charged for the
services.  Consistent with Sentinel's billing policies with
respect to other clients, it will continue to charge the Debtors
for all other services provided and for other charges and
disbursements incurred in the rendition of services.

Sentinel and the Debtors anticipate that Sentinel's total
compensation for the services to be performed pursuant to this
proposed representation will not exceed $5,000.

SOLYNDRA LLC: Taps Environ Int'l as Environmental Consultant
------------------------------------------------------------
Solyndra LLC asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Delaware for authorization to employ Environ International
Corporation as environmental consultant for the purpose of
evaluating the environmental condition of the Debtors' formerly
leased facility located at 1210 California Circle, Milpitas,
California.

The Debtors seek to retain the services of ENVIRON to facilitate
the Debtors' negotiations with its former landlord at the
property, iStar CTL I, L.P., and prepare for litigation against
the landlord, including with respect to the landlord's objection
to the Debtors' motion to reject the lease and the landlord's
motion for an administrative expense claim and other relief.
Specifically, ENVIRON will, among other things:

   i. participate in telephone conversations with individuals who
      have knowledge regarding the environmental condition of the
      property;

  ii. review documents regarding the environmental condition of
      the property;

iii. conduct a one-day site visit at the property; and

  iv. prepare an expert report summarizing ENVIRON's conclusions
      regarding the environmental condition of the property.

The hourly rates of ENVIRON's personnel are:

         Principal                            $310
         Manager I Senior Consultant 10       $250
         Manager/Senior Consultant 9          $225
         Manager/Senior Consultant 8          $200

         Associate 5                          $140
         Associate 4                          $130
         Drafting/Support                      $75

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

A hearing on Sept. 8, 2012 at 10:30 a.m., has been set.

                        About Solyndra LLC

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

Fremont, California-based Solyndra and affiliate 360 Degree Solar
Holdings Inc. sought Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (Bankr. D.
Del. Lead Case No. 11-12799) on Sept. 6, 2011.  Solyndra is at
least the third solar company to seek court protection from
creditors since August 2011.

Judge Mary F. Walrath presides over the Debtors' cases.  The
Debtors are represented by Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP as
legal adviser.  AlixPartners LLP serves as noticing claims and
balloting agent.  Imperial Capital LLC serves as the company's
investment banker and financial adviser.  The Debtors also tapped
former Massachusetts Governor William F. Weld, now with the law
firm McDermott Will & Emery, to represent the company in
government investigations and related litigation.  BDO Consulting,
a division of BDO USA, LLP, as financial advisor and BDO Capital
Advisors, LLC, serves as investment banker for the creditors'
panel.

The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors of Solyndra LLC has
tapped Blank Rome LLP as counsel and BDO Consulting as financial
advisors.

In October 2011, the Debtors hired Berkeley Research Group, LLC,
and designated R. Todd Neilson as Chief Restructuring Officer.

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

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

Solyndra did not receive acceptable offers to buy the business as
a going concern.  Two auctions late last year brought in a total
of $8 million.  A three-day auction in February generated another
$3.8 million.  An auction in June generated $1.79 million from the
sale of 7,200 lots of equipment.

Solyndra filed a liquidating plan at the end of July and scheduled
a hearing on Sept. 7 for approval of the explanatory disclosure
statement.  The Plan is designed to pay 2.5% to 6%
to unsecured creditors with claims totaling as much as $120
million. Unsecured creditors with $27 million in claims against
the holding company are projected to have a 3% dividend.

STANFORD INT'L: SEC Appeals Ruling on SIPC Cover
------------------------------------------------
Sindhu Sundar at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission will challenge a Washington
federal judge's ruling that Securities Investor Protection Corp.
doesn't have to help cover victims' losses from convicted Robert
Allen Stanford's $7 billion Ponzi scheme, the regulator said
Friday.

Domiciled in Antigua, Stanford International Bank Limited --
http://www.stanfordinternationalbank.com/-- is a member of
Stanford Private Wealth Management, a global financial services
network with US$51 billion in deposits and assets under
management or advisement.  Stanford Private Wealth Management
serves more than 70,000 clients in 140 countries.

On Feb. 16, 2009, the United States District Court for the
Northern District of Texas, Dallas Division, signed an order
appointing Ralph Janvey as receiver for all the assets and
records of Stanford International Bank, Ltd., Stanford Group
Company, Stanford Capital Management, LLC, Robert Allen Stanford,
James M. Davis and Laura Pendergest-Holt and of all entities they
own or control.  The February 16 order, as amended March 12,
2009, directs the Receiver to, among other things, take control
and possession of and to operate the Receivership Estate, and to
perform all acts necessary to conserve, hold, manage and preserve
the value of the Receivership Estate.

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, on Feb. 17, charged
before the U.S. District Court in Dallas, Texas, Mr. Stanford and
three of his companies for orchestrating a fraudulent, multi-
billion dollar investment scheme centering on an US$8 billion
Certificate of Deposit program.

A criminal case was pursued against him in June before the U.S.
District Court in Houston, Texas.  Mr. Stanford pleaded not
guilty to 21 charges of multi-billion dollar fraud, money-
laundering and obstruction of justice.  Assistant Attorney
General Lanny Breuer, as cited by Agence France-Presse News, said
in a 57-page indictment that Mr. Stanford could face up to 250
years in prison if convicted on all charges.  Mr. Stanford
surrendered to U.S. authorities after a warrant was issued for
his arrest on the criminal charges.

The criminal case is U.S. v. Stanford, H-09-342, U.S. District
Court, Southern District of Texas (Houston). The civil case is
SEC v. Stanford International Bank, 3:09-cv-00298-N, U.S.
District Court, Northern District of Texas (Dallas).

TOM JONES: Women's Wear Retailer Searle Looking for Buyer
---------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,

VITRO SAB: Bondholders Say Egregious Plan Should be Rejected
------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that holders of 60% of Vitro SAB's $1.2 billion in
defaulted bonds told a federal appeals court that the Mexican
glass maker won approval of its reorganization plan from a court
in Mexico "through a process that was completely inimical to the
most basic elements of fairness."

According to the report, Vitro appealed to the U.S. Court of
Appeals in New Orleans from a June ruling by a bankruptcy judge in
Dallas who concluded that Vitro's Mexican reorganization plan was
"manifestly contrary" to U.S. law and public policy because it
reduced the liability of subsidiaries on defaulted bonds by 60%
even though the subsidiaries weren't in bankruptcy in the U.S. or
Mexico.

The report relates that in its brief filed last week supporting
the ruling in the bankruptcy court, the bondholders urged the
appeals court to send a signal that "egregious plans" like Vitro's
"will not be enforced."  On top of arguments that the Mexican plan
improperly reduced debt owing by subsidiaries not in bankruptcy,
the bondholders contend that their votes against the plan were
swamped by $1.5 billion of votes submitted by Vitro's own
subsidiaries favoring the plan that reduced their own debt.  The
$1.5 billion in debt to subsidiaries was created in what the
bondholders say was a $2.7 billion fraudulent transfer kept secret
for most of a year.  There were other "extreme voting
irregularities," according to the bondholders.  Giving nothing in
return, many Vitro employees received $1,000 bonds so they could
vote for the plan.  In addition, Vitro paid a consent fee to
approving creditors, which the bondholders characterize as
"votebuying."

According to the report, the bondholders' brief also argued that
other provisions in the Mexican plan were "patently unjust."  The
bondholders pointed to provisions that require creditors to waive
their claims against non-bankrupt subsidiaries as a condition to
receiving distributions in the reorganization.  Vitro contended in
its previously filed brief that failing to enforce the Mexican
reorganization would have a "far reaching negative effect" on
relations with Mexico.

Vitro spokesman Roberto Riva Palacio said the company is
"confident in the strength of our arguments on appeal."  The
appeal will be argued before the appeals court during the first
week of October.

The appeals court case is Vitro SAB de CV v. Ad Hoc Group of Vitro
Noteholders (In re Vitro SAB de CV), 12-10689, 5th U.S. Circuit
Court of Appeals (New Orleans).  The suit in bankruptcy court
where the judge decided not to enforce the Mexican reorganization
in the U.S. is Vitro SAB de CV v. ACP Master Ltd. (In re Vitro SAB
de CV), 12-03027, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Northern District of
Texas (Dallas).  The bondholders' previous appeal is Ad Hoc Group
of Vitro Noteholders v. Vitro SAB de CV (In re Vitro SAB de CV),
11-11239, 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals (New Orleans).  The
bondholders' appeal of Chapter 15 recognition in District Court is
Ad Hoc Group of Vitro Noteholders v. Vitro SAB de CV (In re Vitro
SAB de CV), 11-02888, U.S. District Court, Northern District of
Texas (Dallas).

                          About Vitro SAB

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

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

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

            Concurso Mercantil & Chapter 15 Proceedings

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

Early in January 2011, the Mexican Court dismissed the Concurso
Mercantil proceedings.  But an appellate court in Mexico
reinstated the reorganization in April 2011.  Following the
reinstatement, Vitro SAB on April 14, 2011, re-filed a petition
for recognition of its Mexican reorganization in U.S. Bankruptcy
Court in Manhattan (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 11- 11754).

The Vitro parent received sufficient acceptances of its
reorganization by using the US$1.9 billion in debt owing to
subsidiaries to vote down opposition by bondholders.  The holders
of US$1.2 billion in defaulted bonds opposed the Mexican
reorganization plan because shareholders could retain ownership
while bondholders aren't being paid in full.

Vitro announced in March 2012 that it has implemented the
reorganization plan approved by a judge in Monterrey, Mexico.

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

                      Chapter 11 Proceedings

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

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

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

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

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

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

The U.S. Vitro companies sold their assets to American Glass
Enterprises LLC, an affiliate of Sun Capital Partners Inc., for
US$55 million.

U.S. subsidiaries of Vitro SAB are having their cases converted
to liquidations in Chapter 7, court records in January 2012 show.
In December, the U.S. Trustee in Dallas filed a motion to convert
the subsidiaries' cases to liquidations in Chapter 7.  The
Justice Department's bankruptcy watchdog said US$5.1 million in
bills were run up in bankruptcy and hadn't been paid.

On June 13, 2012, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Harlin "Cooter" Hale in
Dallas entered a ruling that precluded Vitro from enforcing
its Mexican reorganization plan in the U.S.  The judge ruled that
the Mexican reorganization was "manifestly contrary" to U.S.
public policy because it bars the bondholders from holding Vitro
operating subsidiaries liable to pay on their guarantees of the
bonds.  The Mexican plan reduced the debt of subsidiaries on $1.2
billion in defaulted bonds even though they weren't in bankruptcy
in any country.


TROPICANA ENT: 3rd Cir. Rejects Noteholders' Contribution Claim
---------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit affirmed a lower
court ruling that denied the request of the Ad Hoc Consortium of
Senior Subordinated Noteholders of Tropicana Entertainment LLC for
reimbursement of $2,320,172 in fees and expenses, as a substantial
contribution to the debtors' estate, pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Sec.
503(b)(3)(D).

On May 6, 2008, the Consortium filed an emergency motion for the
appointment of a Chapter 11 trustee in an effort to remove William
J. Yung III from Tropicana's management and prevent further
adverse regulatory action that might reduce the value of
Tropicana's bankruptcy estates.  Several parties, including the
Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors, joined in the Trustee
Motion.  The parties resolved the Trustee Motion by way of a
settlement, pursuant to which Mr. Yung agreed to resign from his
management positions.  The settlement agreement also included a
clause in which Tropicana acknowledged that expenses incurred by
the Consortium in prosecuting the Trustee Motion "represent a
substantial contribution to the Debtors' estate."

Tropicana and various parties-in-interest negotiated a plan of
reorganization over the next year that was confirmed on May 5,
2009.  On July 31, 2009, the Consortium filed an application for
reimbursement of the expenses it incurred in connection with the
Trustee Motion.  The Consortium argued that it was entitled to
such reimbursement because the $2,434,474 in legal fees that it
incurred while prosecuting the Trustee Motion represented a
substantial contribution to the debtors' estate.

After hearing oral argument on Sept. 10, 2009, the Bankruptcy
Court denied the Application, finding that while the Trustee
Motion "turned out to have a beneficial effect on the estates,"
the "action was taken largely in the self-interest of the movants
here and would have been taken whether there would have been
estate reimbursement or not." The District Court affirmed.

A copy of the Court's Aug. 31, 2012 Opinion is available at

* 4 Firms Feared Most by In-House Counsel
-----------------------------------------
Carolina Bolado at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that when dealing
with high-stakes litigation, there are four top-notch firms that
in-house counsel dread seeing on the other side of the courtroom,
according to a new survey of corporate counsel.

Boies Schiller & Flexner LLP, Jones Day, Kirkland & Ellis LLP and
Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom LLP ? dubbed the "Fearsome
Foursome" ? are listed as the four most-feared litigation firms in
the BTI Litigation Outlook 2013 report from The BTI Consulting
Group (Wellesley, Mass.), Bankruptcy Law360 discloses.


* S&P's Global Corporate Default Tally Revised to 54 Issuers
-------------------------------------------------------------
There were no global corporate defaults last week.  However, S&P
revised the 2012 global corporate default tally to 54 issuers to
account for U.S.-based ATP Oil & Gas Corp.'s default, said an
article published Thursday by Standard & Poor's Global Fixed
Income  Research, titled "The Revised 2012 Global Corporate
Default Tally of 54 Issuers Exceeds the 2011 Full-Year Total."

Standard & Poor's Ratings Services downgraded ATP to 'D' from
'CCC' on Aug. 21, 2012, after the company announced that it had
filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

By region, 30 of the 54 defaulters were based in the U.S., 14 in
the emerging markets, seven in Europe, and three in the other
developed region (Australia, Canada, Japan, and New Zealand).  In
comparison, the 2011 total (through Aug. 29) was 27, with 18 based
in the U.S., two in the emerging markets, two in Europe, and five
in the other developed region.  So far this year, bankruptcy
filings accounted for 16 defaults, missed payments for 15;
distressed exchanges for 10, and eight were confidential.  The
remaining five entities defaulted for various other reasons.   In
2011, 21 issuers defaulted because of missed interest or principal
payments, and 13 because of bankruptcy filings--both of which were
among the top reasons for defaults in 2010.  Distressed exchanges-
-another top reason for default in 2010--followed with 11 defaults
in 2011.  Of the remaining defaults, two issuers failed to
finalize refinancing on bank loans, two were subject to regulatory
action, one had its banking license revoked by its country's
central bank, one was appointed a receiver, and two were
confidential.

                            *********

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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