2655 BUSH: Seeks Dismissal of Case After Closing Asset Sale
-----------------------------------------------------------
2655 Bush LLC is seeking dismissal of its Chapter 11 case.

2655 Bush, a single asset real estate, completed the sale of its
real property commonly known as 2655 Bush Street, San Francisco,
California.  The sale closed Aug. 16, 2012.

Through orders entered on Aug. 13, 2012, the Court authorized the
sale of the Debtor's asset and disbursement of the proceeds of
sale in the satisfaction of all secured and unsecured claims
against the Debtor's estate.  The Debtor caused the proceeds of
sale to be disbursed from escrow in satisfaction of all secured
and unsecured claims.

There are only two administrative claims against the estate.  The
Office of the United States Trustee has received payment in full
of all U.S. Trustee fees and consents to dismissal of the case.

The Debtor's counsel will receive payment from the Debtor or its
sole member following dismissal of the case.

All administrative, secured and unsecured claims have been paid in
full, except for the fees and costs of Debtor's counsel, which
have been provided for.

Although $500,000 was reserved in escrow to provide a source of
payment for disputed claims, there are no disputed claims and all
claims of every nature and type have been paid in full.  The
holdback performs no useful purpose, and the Debtor submits that
it should be released to the Debtor or its sole Member.

              Greenwich Approved as Investment Banker

The Bankruptcy Court also has approved the Debtor's employment of
Greenwich Group International as investment banker.  The objective
of the Debtor's Chapter 11 case has been to sell the property so
as to provide payment in full for all secured and unsecured
creditors and to recover the substantial equity held by its sole
Member, Ernest McNabb.  To sell the Property, the Debtor retained
Greenwich to act as its investment banker prior to the
commencement of the Chapter 11 case.  Greenwich continued to
perform investment banking services to the Debtor postpetition.

With Greenwich's assistance, the Debtor negotiated the instant
sale of the Property with Thompson-Dorfman Partners LLC and its
affiliate, the predecessor in interest of AREOF VI BUSH STREET,
LLC, a Delaware limited liability company for $14.5 million.

According to the Debtor's court filings, Greenwich has well and
truly performed its services as an investment banker, and deserves
credit for the successful sale of the Property.

Greenwich is compensated for its services under the Engagement
Agreement through a success fee, measured as a percentage, 3%, of
the transaction value.

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

                          About 2655 Bush

San Francisco, California-based 2655 Bush LLC owns a building and
associated parking garage located at 2655 Bush Street, at the
intersection of Divisadero Street, in San Francisco, California.

2655 Bush LLC filed for Chapter 11 (Bankr. N.D. Calif. Case No.
12-30388) on Feb. 8, 2012.  Judge Thomas E. Carlson presides over
the case.  The company disclosed assets of $15.04 million and
liabilities of $12.4 million.


A&S GROUP: Mosaics Seller Files for Chapter 11 in Atlanta
---------------------------------------------------------
Tucker, Georgia-based A&S Group, Inc., filed a Chapter 11 petition
(Bankr. N.D. Ga. Case No. 12-72662) in Atlanta, on Sept. 9, 2012.

The Debtor is an importer and distributor of decorative ceramic
tile and mosaics, and natural stone products, most of which are
used for wall and floor applications and counter and table tops in
residential and commercial properties.  The Debtor's customer base
includes local, regional and national retailers, home centers,
developers and retailers.

The resolution authorizing the bankruptcy filing says that the
Debtor is unable to pay its debt as they generally mature and it
is in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders for
the company to file for bankruptcy protection.

The Debtor estimated assets and debts of $10 million to
$50 million.

The Debtor said in a court filing it suffered erosion in sales due
to decline in the housing and home improvement channels, the
general downturn in the construction business and the over-all
downturn in the economy as well as demands for significant price
decreases by several of its key customers and increased foreign
competition.  The Debtor has concurrently experienced increases in
operating costs as a result of increased product costs, rising
fuel costs and unfavorable exchange rate variances.  These factors
resulted in significant losses to Debtor, which it was unable to
fully ameliorate in spite of cash infusions from its owners, sales
and cost-cutting initiatives.

Based on its current operations, the Debtor determined that it did
not have current sales, profits or financing to continue without
the assistance of the Bankruptcy Court.  Recently, the Company has
undergone a down-sizing closing its South Alabama, Birmingham,
Alabama and Charleston, South Carolina distribution centers.

The Debtor's plan is to consolidate operations in its local
distribution plant, discontinue its sales and distributions of
slab materials such as marble and granite which provides little
profit to the Debtor as compared to its cost, and decrease its
manpower to a manageable level for its one distribution facility.

No first day motions were filed other than a motion to extend the
Debtor's Sept. 24 deadline to file its schedules of assets and
liabilities and statement of financial affairs.  The Debtor wants
the deadline extended to Oct. 8.

AMERICAN AIRLINES: Committee Backs Equity for New CBAs
------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that the AMR Corp. creditors' committee supports the idea
of giving stock and $14 million in cash to the flight attendants'
and mechanics' unions in return for their consent to new
concessionary contracts.

According to the report, the official creditor representative for
the parent of American Airlines Inc. pointedly told the pilots
that the committee supports giving neither cash nor stock unless
the flight deck crews change their minds and ratify the contract
they voted down in August.  The other eight unions at American
Airlines all ratified their contracts.  The committee said in its
filing that it hopes to come to agreement by the year's end on the
question of whether AMR will remain independent or merge.

There will be a Sept. 12 hearing in U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
approval of the two union contacts.

The report relates that the U.S. Trustee opposes the cash
payments, saying they are prohibited by bankruptcy law.  The
committee points to prior cases in New York where judges approved
similar payments.  The flight attendants are to receive $7 million
in cash and 3% of the stock in reorganized AMR.  The mechanics are
to receive $7 million and 4.8% of the equity.

The report notes that the committee said it "reluctantly" supports
giving away equity that dilutes what unsecured creditors will
receive in a reorganization.  Among the nine AMR unions, only the
pilots voted down their contract.  At a hearing last week, the
bankruptcy judge imposed 20% in concessions on the pilots.

The report relates that for agreeing to new contracts voluntarily,
AMR only received 17% in concessions from other unions.  AMR
achieved less success with workers at the American Eagle feeder
airline subsidiary.  On Sept. 7, the airline filed papers in
bankruptcy court to impose new contract terms on mechanics,
dispatchers and ground-school instructors, all represented by the
Transport Workers Union.  American Eagle flight attendants,
represented by another union, ratified a new contract, with 87%
voting "yes."

third largest airline in the United States, filed for bankruptcy

AMERICAN AIRLINES: Amer. Eagle Seeks to Impose New Labor Terms
--------------------------------------------------------------
Jacqueline Palank at Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review reports
that AMR Corp.'s American Eagle regional airline says it is
"running out of time" to secure the labor concessions its survival
depends on and is asking a bankruptcy judge to let it impose new
terms for several holdout groups of workers.

AMERICAN REALTY: Moody's Reviews 'Ba2' Rating for Upgrade
---------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed Realty Income Corporation's (O)
Baa1 senior unsecured rating, and revised the rating outlook to
negative, from stable. Simultaneously, Moody's placed American
Realty Capital Trust's (ARCT) Ba2 issuer rating on review for
possible upgrade. These actions follow the announcement that
Realty Income entered into a definitive agreement to acquire all
of the outstanding shares of American Realty Capital Trust in a
transaction valued at $2.9 billion that is expected to close
during the 4Q12 or early 1Q13. Once the transaction closes,
American Realty Capital Trust's issuer rating will be withdrawn
since they have no outstanding securities.

Ratings Rationale

Realty Income's outlook revision reflects the integration risk of
such a large portfolio. The ARCT portfolio has a significant
amount of non-retail properties, which is a shift in property type
concentration for Realty Income. Although Realty Income has been
successful in the past with integrating large portfolios, this is
the largest transaction yet and some of American Realty Income
Trust's businesses require different operating skills than Realty
Income's traditional triple-net lease tenants, which add operating
complexity to Realty Income's business model.

Moody's notes that following the acquisition of American Realty
Capital Trust, Realty Income will be the largest triple-net lease
REIT with a deeper and broader triple-net lease real estate
platform in line with Realty Income's goals. This transaction
provides other key benefits to Realty Income's credit profile.
First, revenue generated by investment grade tenants increases
from 19% to 34%. Second, it increases tenant diversification so
that rental revenues from the top 15 tenants decreases from 49% to
42%. Third, industry diversification is increased such that rental
revenues from the top ten industries decreases from 73% to 64% and
retail property revenues decrease from 86% to 77%. Fourth, the
lease maturity profile is increased from 11.1 to 11.4 years.

The negative outlook reflects Moody's expectation that Realty
Income will need time to integrate the American Realty Capital
Trust portfolio, while continuing to produce strong consistent
earnings.

A return to a stable outlook will reflect a smooth portfolio
integration on a leverage neutral basis while continuing to
operate with a conservative capital strategy. Downward rating
pressure would reflect Realty Income's inability to integrate this
large acquisition on a leverage-neutral basis, long-term growth in
tenant or industry concentrations, secured debt approaching 10% of
gross assets, or a decline in fixed charge coverage below 2.7x
(including capitalized interest) for a sustained period of time.

Moody's will continue to monitor the progress and consummation of
the proposed American Realty Capital Trust acquisition, as well as
the final capital structure. Moody's expects to conclude its

ASHLAND UNIVERSITY: Moody's Reviews 'Ba3' Rating for Downgrade
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded Ashland University's
rating to Ba3 from Ba1. The rating remains under review for
possible further downgrade. Ashland's rating was first placed
under review on June 5, 2012. The current action affects
approximately $37 million of Series 2010 bonds issued through the
Ohio Higher Educational Facility Commission.

Summary Rating Rationale

The downgrade reflects a higher debt burden than anticipated and
weakened cash flow, causing a potential covenant violation which
could result in acceleration of the university's debt. In
addition, the downgrade reflects very thin liquidity that is
insufficient to cover demand debt, a weakening balance sheet,
steep decline in net tuition revenue based on unaudited FY 2012
financials, and projections of another decline in total enrollment
in fall 2012.

Moody's review will focus on cash flow projections specifically as
it relates to scheduled debt service, the outcome of discussions
between the university and one of its private lenders regarding a
potential covenant violation, and an update on enrollment for the
fall 2012 semester. Moody's review period is expected to conclude
within 15 days.

Challenges

* Rising debt and thin balance sheet cushion with $10.6 million
of expendable resources (excludes plant equity) in FY 2011
covering pro-forma debt and operations 0.11 times and 0.10 times.
Expendable financial resources dipped to $3.5 million as of May
31, 2012 based on preliminary FY 2012 financials.

* Debt structure, which includes secured variable rate loans from
three separate banks allowing acceleration in the event of a
covenant violation, cross default provisions, and bullet
maturities. The university's monthly liquidity is insufficient to
cover its demand debt, with FY 2011 monthly liquidity to pro-forma
demand debt of just 43%. The variable rate loans are not
synthetically fixed and these loans, therefore, expose the
university to interest rate risk. The first bullet maturity of
$17.9 million is scheduled for 08/21/14, which the university
plans to refinance before maturity.

* Extremely weak revenue generating position as a private college
in Ohio, a state with many public and private university options,
and poor demographics. This stiff competition from public and
private universities, as well as an anticipated decline in
enrollment expected in fall 2012, is a particular credit challenge
given the university's high dependence on student charges of 88%.

* Limited monthly liquidity of $17.6 million as of June 30, 2011,
a typically cash-poor period, providing just over 67 days of cash
and cash equivalents available to support operations. Management
estimates a decline in monthly liquidity at FYE 2012 (May 31) to
approximately $5.0 million, providing an even weaker cushion to
operating expenses and demand debt.

* Extended pledge payment schedule over a 20-year period for the
athletic complex, with pledges of $21 million received against a
$23 million goal and no concrete plans to materially pay down the
debt. The university has received $8.5 million of the pledges in
cash with $4.8 million unspent and a bullet payment of
approximately $19.5 million due at maturity on August 21, 2014.

* Management turnover within the last two years in key areas of
enrollment and fundraising.

Strengths

* Management's ability to adjust expenses to substantially
address a significant revenue shortfall due to an unanticipated
7.8% decline in fall 2011 enrollment generating near breakeven
operating performance of negative 0.4% in FY 2012 based on
unaudited financials. However, the operating margin is not
comparable to prior fiscal years given a change in the
university's fiscal year end to May 31 from June 30 and operating
performance for FY 2012 is inflated given higher expenses than
revenue generated in June 2012.

* Favorable history of fundraising evidenced by a three-year
average gift revenue of $10.1 million from FY 2009-FY 2011.
Moody's notes that a large portion of the university's gifts are
temporarily or permanently restricted. The university is planning
a comprehensive campaign.

* Approximately $18 million of the university's debt is
associated with pledges although Moody's notes that pledge
payments have been paid slower than anticipated. The university's
$37 million of fixed rate debt is amortizing with a 2024 maturity
and benefits from a cash funded debt service reserve fund.

ATLANTIC & PACIFIC: Selling Food Emporium Chain
-----------------------------------------------
Lisa Fickenscher, writing for Crain's New York Business, reports
that The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co. has confirmed plans to
sell the Food Emporium brand.

According to Crain's, a spokesperson said A&P announced the plan
to its employees last week.  The spokesman said the stores, its
leases and the brand are for sale.  Duff & Phelps, a multi-service
banking firm, has been retained by A&P, the report adds.

According to Crain's, the company said in a statement, "We
commenced a marketing process of The Food Emporium in early
September.  The Food Emporium represents a unique urban footprint
that requires a specific go-to-market strategy.  Therefore, we've
made the decision to market these 16 Manhattan stores to a variety
of prospective buyers.  The sale will enable parent company A&P to
support the company's long-term strategic vision to be the No. 1
food and drug store in every neighborhood it serves."

Crain's notes it has long been rumored that the company would sell
Food Emporium, which has 16 locations in New York City and one in
New Canaan, Conn.  The Connecticut store is not part of the sale,
the report says.

According to Crain's, analysts believe the company will use the
proceeds of the Food Emporium brand to invest in its other brands.
A&P also owns Pathmark, Waldbaums, Superfresh and Food Basics.
Ron Burkle, chairman of The Yucaipa Cos., is chairman of A&P and
is directing its recovery.

BC CAPITAL: Sued for Failing to Report Madoff, MF Global Exposure
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission filed an emergency
action on Sept. 6, 2012, in the U.S. District Court for the
Northern District of Illinois to freeze assets under the control
of defendants Nikolai S. Battoo, BC Capital Group S.A., BC Capital
Group International Limited, BC Capital Management LLP, and BC
Capital Group Holdings S.A. (the BC Common Enterprise).  The
action also seeks an order appointing a receiver for the BC Common
Enterprise and related entities, prohibiting the defendants from
destroying books and records, and granting the CFTC immediate
access to evidence.

The CFTC's complaint alleges that defendants operated a series of
commodity pools called "Private International Wealth Management"
that solicited more than $140 million from U.S. residents.  The
complaint also alleges that defendants made fraudulent
misrepresentations and omissions in connection with significant
losses sustained by the PIWM pools through periodic account
statements and asset verification documents as well as through
telephone calls and letters to pool participants.

Specifically, defendants allegedly committed fraud in 2008 by
failing to disclose the PIWM pools' significant exposure to the
Bernard Madoff Ponzi scheme, as well as trading losses suffered by
other of Battoo's hedge funds in which the PIWM pools were
invested. In 2009, defendants sent asset verifications to pool
participants that the CFTC alleges overstated the value of the
PIWM pools' investments.  Finally, in 2011, defendants allegedly
overstated the impact that the bankruptcy of MF Global, Inc. had
on the PIWM pools and used it as an excuse for refusing to return
pool participants' funds.

In the continuing litigation against the defendants the CFTC seeks
a permanent injunction from future violations of federal
commodities laws, permanent registration and trading bans, full
restitution to defrauded pool participants, disgorgement of any
ill-gotten gains, and the payment of appropriate civil monetary
penalties.

The CFTC appreciates the assistance of the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission (SEC) in this matter.

The CFTC Division of Enforcement staff responsible for this action
are Andrew Ridenour, Amanda Harding, David Slovick, Stephen
Turley, Carlin Metzger, Erica Bodin, Theodore Kneller, Kathleen
Banar, Rick Glaser and Richard Wagner.


BELLMARK RECORDS: Producer Wants Judge to Say He Owns 'Whoomp!
--------------------------------------------------------------
Brian Mahoney at Bankruptcy Law360 reports music producer Alvertis
Isbell asked a Texas federal judge on Thursday to end his 10-year
copyright dispute with publisher DM Records Inc. by declaring him
the rightful owner of hip-hop songs "Dazzey Duks" and "Whoomp!
(There It Is)," rebuffing DM's arguments that he sold it the
rights in a bankruptcy sale.

Mr. Isbell claimed in a motion for judgment as a matter of law
that he transferred "Dazzey Duks" and "Whoomp (There It Is)"
copyrights to his publishing company, Alvert Music, before selling
the assets, Bankruptcy Law360 relates.

The events giving rise to the suit begin with business conducted
by two companies, Alvert Music and Bellmark Records, each run by
Mr. Isbell.  Bellmark was purportedly a record company, owning
sound recordings.  Alvert Music is, and has been, a music
publishing company, which owns musical compositions and not sound
recordings.

During the early 1990's, Bellmark entered into writers agreements
to obtain composition rights to the Compositions for its
affiliated publishing company, Alvert Music.  Bellmark retained
for itself the two sound recordings.  In 1997, DM Records secured
licenses from both of Mr. Isbell's companies to exploit both the
musical compositions and sound recordings.  In April of that year,
Bellmark filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition, which was later
converted into a Chapter 7 petition.  In October 1999, DM
purchased the assets of Bellmark from the bankruptcy estate,
including all of Bellmark's rights in the Compositions.  Alvert
Music has not sought bankruptcy protection.  Since that time, DM
allegedly has proceeded with regard to the Compositions in a
manner inconsistent with Alvert Music's ownership rights.  In
2002, Mr. Isbell filed the lawsuit in the Northern District of
Texas.  In 2004, that court transferred the matter, and the
magistrate judge referred it to the bankruptcy court in that same
year.  In 2007, the bankruptcy court issued a report and
recommendation that the magistrate judge's referral be withdrawn,
and the undersigned judge agreed.  Following an appeal of a
December 2008 order by the District Court, this case is now
pending once more before the District Court.

BENADA ALUMINUM: Can Continue Using Lenders' Cash Thru January
--------------------------------------------------------------
Benada Aluminum Products LLC last week won authority to continue
using its lenders' cash collateral through Jan. 16, 2013.  The
Bankruptcy Court at a hearing on Sept. 4 also approved the
Debtor's request to obtain postpetition financing from its pre-
bankruptcy lenders.

Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., a national banking association, has
committed to provide up to $5.0 million in revolving loans.  FTL
Capital, LLC, a Missouri limited liability company, has committed
to extend $1.25 million in postpetition term loans.

At the onset of the case, the Debtor obtained authority to use
cash collateral and obtain DIP financing on an interim basis.
That interim order, dated Aug. 6, set another hearing for Sept. 4
on the financing request.

Wells Fargo and the Debtor are parties to a Loan and Security
Agreement dated June 20, 2011, which governs (i) a Revolver Note
dated June 20, 2011, in the original principal amount of $5.0
million, and (ii) a Term Note dated June 20, 2011, in the original
amount of $4,720,000.

As of the Petition Date, the outstanding principal and accrued,
but unpaid, interest owed to Wells Fargo under the Wells Fargo
Pre-Petition Notes is roughly $5.7 million.  The Wells Fargo Pre-
Petition Notes are secured by valid, binding and non-avoidable
first priority liens on all of the Debtor's real and personal
property.

The Debtor is also indebted to FTL Capital, its junior secured
lender, pursuant to a Subordinated Secured Promissory Note dated
April 9, 2012, in the original principal amount of $2.0 million.
The Pre-Petition Junior Term Note is secured by valid, binding and
non-avoidable liens (junior only to Wells Fargo's liens) on all of
the Debtor's personal property, including but not limited to the
Cash Collateral.

The Debtor intends to use the Cash Collateral to fund its day-to-
day operations.

Pursuant to the Aug. 6 Interim Order, the Debtor is required to
pay Wells Fargo a commitment fee of $25,000 plus a host of other
fees.

BENADA ALUMINUM: Sale Hearing Set for Sept. 25
----------------------------------------------
The Bankruptcy Court will hold a hearing on Sept. 25, 2012, at
2:45 p.m. on the request of Benada Aluminum Products LLC to sell
an aluminum extrusion machine.

Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reported that the company conducted an informal auction where
several aluminum extrusion companies bid for the extruder over the
course of 10 days.  The first bids were for about $1 million.
Ultimately, Tubelite Inc. submitted an offer of $2.9 million,
which Benada said is the best.  Absent a better bid in the
meantime, Benada will seek authority to sell to Tubelite.

According to the Bloomberg report, pre-bankruptcy lenders Wells
Fargo Bank N.A. and FLT Capital LLC both agreed to the sale.

Pursuant to an August court order approving interim financing for
the Debtor, in the event of any sale of the business pursuant to
11 U.S.C. Section 363 or under a plan of reorganization, (i) Wells
Fargo will have the right (at an auction or otherwise) to credit
bid in an amount equal to the amount of the Debtor's prepetition
and postpetition debt to Wells Fargo and (ii) subject to an
Intercreditor Agreement, FTL Capital will have the right (at an
auction or otherwise) to credit bid in an amount equal to the
amount of the Debtor's debt to FTL Capital.

As of the Petition Date, the outstanding principal and accrued,
but unpaid, interest owed to Wells Fargo is roughly $5.7 million.
The Debtor is also indebted to FTL Capital, its junior secured
lender, pursuant to a Subordinated Secured Promissory Note dated
April 9, 2012, in the original principal amount of $2.0 million.

FLT Capital is a part owner of the business.

There is $3.4 million owing to trade suppliers.

BERJAC OF OREGON: Sec. 341 Creditors' Meeting Set for Oct. 4
------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Trustee in Eugene, Oregon, will convene a Meeting of
Creditors pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Sec. 341(a) in the Chapter 11 case
of Berjac of Oregon on Oct. 4, 2012, at 10:00 a.m. at USTE1, US
Trustee's Office, in Eugene, 405 E 8th, Rm 1900.

Proofs of claim are due in the case by Jan. 2, 2013.

                      About Berjac of Oregon

Berjac of Oregon filed a bare-bones Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. D.
Ore. Case No. 12-63884) in Eugene on Aug. 31, 2012.  Its
affiliate, Berjac of Portland, Oregon, also sought Chapter 11
bankruptcy protection.

Berjac -- http://www.berjac.com/-- has provided insurance premium
financing to insureds in the Western United States since 1963.
Michael S. Holcomb, owns the Berjac partnerships with his brother
Gary.

According to The Oregonian, on the date of the bankruptcy filing,
state regulators fined Berjac $900,000, saying that 275 investors
might have lost up to $35 million making risky loans to the
Holcombs' firms.  The Oregonian said state officials moved quickly
to issue a press release before the Labor Day weekend to warn
other investors of the firm's alleged illegal scheme and apparent
financial woes.

In cease-and-desist orders issued late August 2012, the Oregon
Division of Finance and Corporate Securities accused Berjac and
the Holcomb brothers of violating Oregon securities laws.  The
orders allege the Holcombs sold unsecured notes to investors
without registering them, getting a license or offering investors
a detailed prospectus.

Judge Frank R. Alley, III, presides over the case.  The Law
Offices of Keith Y. Boyd, Esq., serves as the Debtors' counsel.
Berjac of Oregon estimated assets and debts of $10 million to
$50 million.

Ratings Rationale

"The downgrade to B2 reflects the increase in leverage that will
result from BJ's paying a dividend of $643 million to its sponsors
and certain members of management, which represents a little more
than the total equity invested in the company in September 2011 in
conjunction with the company's LBO," stated Moody's Senior Analyst
Charlie O'Shea. "The result of this highly-aggressive shift in
financial policy will be debt/EBITDA pro forma for this proposed
dividend of well over 6 times, which is the downgrade trigger that
was set for the B1 rating, and interest coverage will reduce to
close to 1.3 times. In addition, the financial policy tone being
set by virtue of this leveraged dividend is highly-aggressive,
which is also a key rating factor."

BJ's is proposing to raise around $690 million in new debt to
execute a $643 million dividend to its sponsor/owners (affiliates
of Leonard Green Partners and CVC Capital Partners) roughly one
year after the closing of the LBO that took the company private.
Components of the proposed financing to pay this dividend, which
represents in excess of the original equity contribution, include:
1) a new $1.225 billion first lien term loan that will repay and
replace the existing $1.07 billion first lien term loan, resulting
in net proceeds of around $155 million; 2) a new $400 million
second lien term loan that will repay and replace the existing
$200 million second lien term loan, resulting in around $200
million in net proceeds; 3) a sale/leaseback transaction that will
result in around $280 million in proceeds, and 4) a net
approximately $50 million draw under the existing unrated ABL.

The B2 corporate family and probability of default ratings reflect
BJ's high leverage as measured by debt/EBITDA, which will now be
well over 6 times, weak interest coverage with EBITA/interest of
around 1.3 times, as well as its limited ability to generate free
cash flow sufficient to attain a free cash flow/net debt metric
above the low single digits on a percentage basis. The ratings
also reflect the tone of financial policy tone being set by the
new dividend.

The ratings continue to be supported by BJ's significant "annuity
stream" of membership revenue, which stood at around $220 million
for the July 2012 LTM period, its favorable position in the
warehouse/wholesale club segment of retail, with its focus on
grocery-equivalents, and its strong position in the populous
Northeast region of the U.S. Ratings also consider the "covenant
lite" structure of the proposed credit facilities, as well as
continued inherent issues surrounding the ownership of BJ's by
private equity firms. Some of these issues include the potential
for additional extractions of equity and otherwise maintenance of
a shareholder-friendly financial policy, which could lead to a
further leveraging and weakening of the company's capital
structure. "BJ's is a strong and very credible competitor in its
key Northeast market, with leading market share as measured by
store locations," stated Moody's Senior Analyst Charlie O'Shea.
"Moody's also recognizes BJ's excellent operating performance
trend over the past several years, which indicates that the
company has been able to perform well through myriad economic
cycles, as well as its good liquidity."

The downgrade of the existing term loans, ratings for which will
be withdrawn upon closing of the proposed new term loans, result
from the downgrade of the corporate family and the application of
Moody's Loss Given Default Methodology, as well as their
respective positions in the capital structure. The B2 rating on
the existing $1.075 billion term loan recognizes the benefit of
first position collateral mortgages on a pool of warehouse clubs,
as well as its more senior position in the capital structure. The
Caa1 rating on the existing $200 million term loan reflects the
lack of any tangible hard asset collateral and its more junior
position in the capital structure.

The ratings on the proposed new term loans result from the
application of Moody's Loss Given Default Methodology, as well as
their respective positions in the capital structure. The (P) B3
rating on the proposed $1.225 billion term loan recognizes its
more senior position in the capital structure, with reduced
benefit of real estate collateral by virtue of the proposed new
sale/leaseback transaction, which will remove approximately $300
million in real estate value from the previous collateral pool.
The (P) Caa1 rating on the proposed $400 million term loan
reflects its more junior position in the capital structure, and
the lack of any tangible hard asset collateral. Upon conclusion of
the proposed transactions, Moody's will remove the Provisional (P)
designation and B3 and Caa1 ratings will be assigned respectively.

The negative outlook recognizes the impact on the company's
quantitative credit profile of the increased debt incurred to fund
the dividend, as well as the company's highly-aggressive financial
policy. Any additional debt beyond that which is contemplated
under the proposed new transaction, reductions in interest
coverage, or weakening liquidity beyond the company's profile pro
forma for this proposed transaction would likely result in a
downgrade. Moody's notes that liquidity, while good, remains
negatively impacted by the approximately $350 million that is
still outstanding on the unrated ABL which was utilized to help
finance the September 2011 LBO.

Given the company's aggressive financial policy and the negative
outlook, an upgrade is unlikely. Over time, stabilization of the
outlook could occur if BJ's can generate free cash flow sufficient
to reduce leverage as measured by debt/EBITDA to a sustained level
approaching 6 times, with interest coverage as measured by
EBIT/interest reaching1.5 times. In addition, the highly-
aggressive tone of the company's financial policy would need to
temper, and liquidity would have to improve.

Ratings could be downgraded if the company's financial policy
continues to be aggressive, liquidity weakens, or if its credit
metrics do not begin to show improvement in the short term, with
any increases in leverage as measured by debt/EBITDA or decreases
in interest coverage as measured by EBITA/interest likely leading
to a downgrade.

The principal methodology used in rating BJ's Wholesale was the
Global Retail Industry Methodology published in June 2011. Other
methodologies used include Loss Given Default for Speculative-
Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada and EMEA
published in June 2009.

BJ's Wholesale Club, Inc., based in Westborough, Massachusetts, is
a leading warehouse club retailer, with 195 locations in 15
states. Annual revenues are around $11 billion. The company was
taken private in September 2011 in a leveraged transaction by
affiliates of Leonard Green Partners and CVC Capital Partners for
around $3 billion.


CANTRELL/CUTTER: Reaches Accord Over Pension Contribution
---------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Wendelin I. Lipp signed off on a Stipulation and
Consent Order dated Sept. 6 between Cantrell-Cutter Printing,
Inc., and the Trustees of the Printing Local 72 Industry Pension
Fund.

The Pension Fund on June 11, 2012, filed a Motion for Entry of an
Order Allowing and Directing Payment of Administrative Expenses
and Payment of Contributions.  The Pension Fund is a jointly
trusted multiemployer employee pension plan as those terms are
defined in Sections 3(3) and 3(37) of the Employee and Retirement
Income Security Act of 1974, 29 U.S.C. Sections 1002(3) and (37)
to whom the Debtor is required to remit reports and contributions
pursuant to its Collective Bargaining Agreement with the
International Brotherhood of Teamsters Graphic Communications
Union, Local 72-C.

The Debtor and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Graphic
Communications Union, Local 72-C, have been parties to a
collective bargaining agreement pursuant to which the Debtor has
been obligated (i) to contribute a specific amount to the Pension
Fund in connection with each hour of employment within the trade
and geographical jurisdiction of Local 72 and (ii) to submit
monthly reports showing the covered employees and each hour worked
and the corresponding amounts due to the Pension Fund.

No Objection to the Pension Fund's Motion for Payment of
Administrative Expenses has been filed.

The Debtor has not sought to modify or reject the CBA through the
process set out in 11 U.S.C. Sec. 1113.  The Debtor has failed to
pay contributions due to the Pension Fund for work performed at
the Debtor's request from October 2010 through and including July
2012 in the amount of $45,991.50.

Pursuant to Stipulation, the Debtor assumes the CBA and agrees to
continue to be bound by its provisions.  The parties agree that,
pursuant to Section 507(a)(2) of the Bankruptcy Code, the Pension
Fund is entitled to an Administrative Claim for all contributions
owed pursuant to the CBA.

To cure any defects and defaults in the CBA as required by Section
365 of the Bankruptcy Code, the Debtor will pay $45,991.50 in
delinquent contributions to the Pension Fund for work performed
from October 2010 through and including July 2012 in weekly
installments of $1,000, payable each Friday, until such delinquent
contributions are fully repaid.  The Debtor will, on and after
this date, make timely contributions (i.e. contributions due and
owing for work performed on and after August 1, 2012) to the
Pension Fund mandated by the CBA now in effect and as subsequently
extended or modified, or as superseded by a new CBA, plus any
interest and liquidated damages required by the Trust Agreement
for failure to make timely contributions.

The parties recognize that any interest or liquidated damages owed
by the Debtor for late payment of contributions will be classified
as a general unsecured claim of the Debtor's bankruptcy estate.

Should the Debtor fail to comply with any terms of the Stipulation
and Consent Order, the Fund may refile their Motion for Payment of
Administrative Expenses with the Court and, upon timely notice to
the Debtor, may at that time seek further appropriate monetary
and/or injunctive relief.

The Debtor will file a Plan of Reorganization incorporating the
Stipulation.

Cantrell/Cutter Printing, Inc., based in Capitol Heights,
Maryland, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. D. Md. Case No.
11-27863) on Sept. 1, 2011.  Judge Wendelin I. Lipp presides over
the case.  In its petition, the Debtor estimated $1 million to
$10 million in assets and debts.  The petition was signed by
Donald L. Cantrell, Jr., president.

CBS I: Disclosure Statement Hearing on Oct. 23
----------------------------------------------
There's a hearing on Oct. 23, 2012 at 9:30 a.m. to consider
approval of the disclosure statement explaining the proposed
Chapter 11 plan filed by CBS I, LLC, owner of the Summerlin
building.

U.S. Bank National Association is estimated to have a claim of
$16.4 million on a prepetition loan, secured by the Debtor's
property, appraised at $19 million in April 2012.  According to
the Disclosure Statement, the U.S. Bank loan will be restructured
and refinance, with the refinanced loan to mature in 120 months
and the Debtor making interest-only payments in the first 36
months.  Like U.S. Bank, holders of general unsecured claims are
impaired.  General unsecured claimants who are not insiders --
estimated in excess of 30,000 -- will receive payment of 100% of
their filed claims to be paid six months after entry of the
confirmation order with simple interest at a rate of 3%.  Holders
of insider unsecured claims won't receive anything.

The Debtor intends to maintain operation of its commercial
property upon confirmation of the Plan.  The Debtor will continue
to utilize Real Estate Asset Management, LLC, as property manager
for the properties.

The Debtor said it does not intend to pursue preference,
fraudulent conveyance or other avoidance actions.  It says that no
significant transfers occurred, other than to the secured
creditors, during the past two years.

A copy of the Disclosure Statement is available for free at:

CDC CORP: Asks Court to Dismiss Objection to Aug. 7 Notice of Sale
------------------------------------------------------------------
CDC Corp. asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District
of Georgia to dismiss or overrule Rajan Vaz's August 14 objection
to the August 7 Notice of Sale related to the proposed sale of
assets by OST International Corporation (a non-Debtor) to Peak
Technologies, Inc.

CDC Corp. and Sellers submit that no Court authorization was
required for OST International Corporation to sell assets to Peak
Technologies, Inc.

Given that any delay would have resulted in irreparable harm and
that Court authorization for the sale in not required, Debtor and
Sellers have closed the sale to Peak Technologies over the
objection filed by Vaz.

Thus, Debtor requests the Court confirm that Court authority was
not required for the sale proposed in the August 7 Notice of Sale
and dismiss Vaz's objection to the August 7 Notice of Sale.  In
the alternative, to the extent the Court finds that Court
authority to be necessary for the sale, the Debtor requests that
the Court overrule Vaz's objection and authorize and ratify the
sale to Peak Technologies, nunc pro tunc to the date of the
closing of the asset sale.

Debtor tells the Court that it should overrule Vaz's latest
objection since it raises the same argument (the existence of an
alleged higher offer) rejected by the Court in connection with
Vaz's objection the May 4 Notices of Sale.  Debtor contends that
Vaz lacks credibility with regard to his assertion that he can
timely fund and close a sale.  Further, Debtor says that the
claimed higher and better offer by Vaz and his equity partners is
not sufficiently higher to justify any delay in a closing of the
proposed asset sale, as it costs Sellers approximately $12,000 per
day to continue to operate the business that is the subject of the
sale to Peak Technologies.

CDH GLOBAL: CFTC Obtains Injunction Amid Fraudulent Conduct
-----------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission on Sept. 11 filed a
notice of intent to revoke the registrations of Linda Faye Harris,
CDH Forex Investments, LLC and CDH Global Holdings, LLC, all of
Flower Mound, Texas.  CDH Forex is a registered Commodity Pool
Operator and Commodity Trading Advisor; CDH Global is a registered
Commodity Trading Advisor; and Harris is registered as an
Associated Person and is the sole principal of CDH Forex. Harris
was an Associated Person and principal of CDH Global.

The notice alleges that Harris, CDH Forex, and CDH Global are
subject to statutory disqualification from CFTC registration based
on an order of default judgment and permanent injunction entered
by the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas on
June 12, 2012.  The order prohibits defendants from committing
further fraud, among other violations.

At the hearing held on June 12, 2012, Harris appeared and conceded
all allegations in the complaint of violations of the Commodity
Exchange Act, but contested only the amount of restitution and
civil monetary penalty.  The court found none of Harris' arguments
credible and entered the order as submitted by the CFTC.

The order contains findings of fact and conclusions of law, which
find, in relevant part, 1) that Harris fraudulently solicited at
least $2.2 million from customers, out of which total trading
losses and misappropriated funds equaled at least $1,361,897, and
2) made material false statements to pool participants.  The order
also finds that Harris provided false, fictitious, or fraudulent
statements to the National Futures Association (NFA), including
falsified trading account statements and falsified bank
statements, to hide the ongoing fraud from NFA.

CFTC Division of Enforcement staff members responsible for this
action are Nathan B. Ploener, Manal M. Sultan, Lenel Hickson, Jr.,
Stephen J. Obie, and Vincent A. McGonagle.


CHEMTURA CORP: Term Loan Increase No Impact on Moody's 'Ba3' CFR
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service said Chemtura Corporation's Corporate
Family Rating and issue ratings are unaffected by the $125mm
increase in its term loan.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on May 27, 2011,
Moody's converted the provisional (P) Ba3 Corporate Family Rating
(CFR), and the senior secured term loan (P) Ba1 ratings, and (P)
B1 senior unsecured notes ratings into definitive ratings. This
action is a result of the company's successful emergence this past
year from Chapter 11 proceedings.  Moody's also raised the
company's short term liquidity ratings to SGL-2
from SGL-3. The rating outlook is stable.

Ratings Changes:

   Chemtura Corporation

   * Corporate Family Rating -- Ba3 from (P) Ba3

   * Probability of Default Rating -- Ba3 from (P) Ba3

   * Senior Secured Term Loan B -- Ba1 (LGD2, 25%) from (P) Ba1
      (LGD2, 17%)

   * 7.875% Senior Notes -- B1 (LGD5, 72%) from (P) B1 (LGD4,
      68%)

   * Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating to SGL-2 from SGL-3

Chemtura Corporation manufactures and sells innovative,
application-focused specialty chemical and consumer products
offerings. Chemtura operates in a wide variety of end-use
industries, including agriculture, transportation, construction,
packaging, lubricants, plastics for durable and non-durable goods,
electronics, and pool and spa chemicals. Sales for the last twelve
months ending June 30, 2012, were approximately $3.0 billion.


CIRCUS & ELDORADO: Noteholders Reject Chapter 11 Plan
-----------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that when Circus & Eldorado Joint Venture filed for
Chapter 11 reorganization in May, the operator of the Silver
Legacy Resort Casino in Reno, Nevada, said the previously-
negotiated plan had support from a "substantial portion" of the
holders of the $142.8 million in 10.125% senior secured notes that
matured March 1.  When the votes were tallied on Sept. 7, the
noteholders voted the plan down.

According to the report, the casino, a joint venture between MGM
Resorts International and Eldorado Resorts LLC, nonetheless
intends to win approval of the plan from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
in Reno using the so-called cramdown process.  Opposition to the
plan is being mounted by Black Diamond Capital Management LLC
which wants to file a competing plan with better treatment for
noteholders.  Black Diamond said it owns "in excess" of one-third
of the notes, an amount sufficient in itself for the class to vote
down the plan.  Although it's not clear from court filings who
voted against the plan, the tabulation of the vote filed with the
bankruptcy court says that 57.6% in amount of notes were opposed
to the reorganization.  In August, Black Diamond asked the
bankruptcy judge for permission to file a plan of its own that
would be "superior to" the casino's plan on "multiple levels."

The report relates that the casino responded on Aug. 30 with
papers asking the bankruptcy judge not to count Black Diamond's
votes, on the theory that the request for permission to file a
competing plan was an unauthorized and veiled attempt to solicit
votes against the plan.  At the present time, the motion to
disregard Black Diamond's "no" votes is on the court's Sept. 19
calendar.  The confirmation hearing for approval of the casino's
plan is set for Oct. 22 and 23.

The report notes that there are alternatives in the casino's plan
depending on whether it's accepted by noteholders.  If they vote
"yes," they would receive about $92.8 million cash plus a new
second-lien note for $27.5 million, equaling a predicted 88.8%
recovery.  If noteholders vote down the plan, the so-called
cramdown provision would take effect where the recovery would be
$11.2 million cash and a new note for $131.6 million at 7.3%
interest.

The report notes that bankruptcy law requires there be at least
one class of creditors that votes in favor of the plan.  The
casino met that requirement because there were "yes" votes from
two classes of unsecured creditors being paid in full on about
$5 million of claims.  The casino contends unsecured creditors
could vote because they won't receive interest on their claims.

According to the report, the owners are also making new capital
contributions.  Black Diamond contends the casino's plan can't be
approved because a decision this year from the U.S. Supreme Court
gives noteholders the right to force a sale where they can pay for
the property using secured debt rather than cash.  The casino may
argue the Supreme Court case doesn't apply because noteholders are
being paid in full.

The Bloomberg report discloses that Black Diamond says it would
file a competing plan to increase noteholders' cash recovery by
$5 million, reducing the second-lien note.  There would be a so-
called rights offering, backstopped by Black Diamond, to supply
the reorganized company with capital.

The existing notes traded for 77.75 cents on the dollar at 2:34
p.m. on Sept. 10, according to Trace, the bond-price reporting
system of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority.

                    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
and 12-51157) on May 17, 2012.

Circus and Eldorado Joint Venture owns and operates the Silver
Legacy Resort Casino, a 19th century silver mining themed hotel,
casino and entertainment complex located in downtown Reno, Nevada.
The casino and entertainment areas at Silver Legacy are connected
by skyway corridors to the neighboring Eldorado Hotel & Casino and
the Circus Circus Hotel and Casino, each of which are owned by
affiliates of the Debtors.  Together, the three properties
comprise the heart of the Reno market's prime gaming area and room
base.

Silver Legacy Capital is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Joint
Venture and was created and exists for the sole purpose of serving
as a co-issuer of the mortgage notes due 2012.  SLCC has no
operations, assets or revenues.

Eldorado Hotel & Casino and Circus Circus Hotel and Casino are not
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.

The Debtors have entered into a Restructuring Support Agreement
with Capital Research and Management Company, a holder of a
substantial portion of the mortgage notes.  A copy of the RSA
dated March 15, 2012, is available for free at http://is.gd/diDPh3
The RSA contemplates a proposed plan will be filed no later than
June 1, 2012.   The plan will contain creditor treatments that

CIT GROUP: Tyco's Tax-Sharing Claim Upheld on Appeal
----------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Allan Gropper in Manhattan
received an accolade from the U.S. Court of Appeals.

According to the report, the appeals court in New York last week
upheld an opinion Judge Gropper wrote in December involving a
claim by Tyco International Ltd. in the prepackaged reorganization
of CIT Group Inc.  The Second Circuit in Manhattan upheld Judge
Gropper "substantially for the reasons stated in its thoughtful
and comprehensive opinion."

The Bloomberg report discloses that the case involved the question
of whether a claim arising from a tax-sharing agreement should be
subordinated under 11 U.S.C. Section 510(b) of the U.S. Bankruptcy
Code as arising from the sale of securities.  Judge Gropper held
against subordination and the circuit court agreed, in substance
using Judge Gropper's opinion as its own.

The case in the appeals court is CIT Group Inc. v. Tyco
International Inc. (In re CIT Group Inc.), 12-1692, U.S. Court of
Appeals for the Second Circuit (Manhattan).

                         About CIT Group

Bank holding company CIT Group Inc. and affiliate CIT Group
Funding Company of Delaware LLC filed for Chapter 11 (Bankr.
S.D.N.Y. Case No. 09-16565) on Nov. 1, 2009, with a prepackaged
Chapter 11 plan of reorganization.  Evercore Partners, Morgan
Stanley and FTI Consulting served as the Company's financial
advisors and Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP served as
legal counsel in connection with the restructuring plan.  Sullivan
& Cromwell served as legal advisor to CIT's Board of Directors.

The Court validated the vote of CIT's impaired classes of
creditors and confirmed the Plan on Dec. 8, 2009.  The Plan
provided for the conversion to equity or reinstatement of seven
classes of debt issued primarily in the form of notes and
debentures; one class of unsecured notes was exchanged for new
debt.  General unsecured creditors, including holders of claims
arising from the rejection of executory contracts, were paid in
full and deemed unimpaired.  Holders of preferred and common
stock, as well as subordinated claims, received no recovery.

CIT emerged from bankruptcy protection on Dec. 11, 2009.

                          *     *     *

In February 2012, Moody's Investors Service upgraded CIT's
Corporate Family Rating to B1 from B2, recognizing CIT's
achievements in strengthening its liquidity profile by
diversifying funding sources, extending debt maturities, and
reducing the level of encumbered assets.

Dominion Bond Rating Service also has upgraded CIT's ratings,
including its Issuer Rating to BB (low) from B (high).

DECISION INSIGHT: Moody's Cuts CFR/PDR to 'B3'; Outlook Stable
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Decision Insight Information
Group (US) I, Inc.'s corporate family (CFR) and probability of
default ratings to B3 from B2. The company's senior secured
ratings were also downgraded to B1 from Ba3. The ratings outlook
was changed to stable from negative. The rating action is driven
by Decision Insight's weaker than expected results since its
leveraged-buyout by TPG Capital L.P., primarily due to reduced
demand for its property-related services. Moody's expects earnings
growth to be soft through the next 12 to 18 months and adjusted
leverage is likely to remain above 6.5x through this time frame
due to continuing challenges in the U.S. and U.K. real estate
markets. Accordingly, the company's CFR has been re-positioned at
a level that is consistent with expected results.

Ratings Rationale

Decision Insight's B3 CFR primarily reflects its high adjusted
leverage (current Debt/ EBITDA above 8x), small scale and
narrowly-focused business, and significant exposure to the
challenging U.S. and U.K. real estate markets. Nonetheless, the
company generates positive free cash flow and good margins, has
broad geographic exposure, and derives a significant amount of its
revenue from recurring subscription services with blue chip
customers. As well, its products tend to be an essential, but
relatively low cost component of its customers' processes, which
reduces volatility in its results.

The outlook change to stable reflects Moody's expectation that
while certain key credit metrics will remain weak for Decision
Insight's rating category in the near term, the company has
adequate liquidity to sustain its operations until meaningful
earnings growth begins to occur.

Downward rating pressure would most likely arise if the company
were to face challenges maintaining an acceptable liquidity
position. This would most likely be accompanied by earnings
decline such that Debt/ EBITDA was sustained above 8x and free
cash flow was negative for an extended period. The rating could be
considered for upgrade should Decision Insight sustain its
adjusted Debt/ EBITDA below 5.5x and its EBITDA-CapEx/ Interest
above 1.5x while maintaining its strong market position.

The principal methodology used in rating Decision Insight was the
Global Business & Consumer Service Industry Methodology published
in October 2010. Other methodologies used include Loss Given
Default for Speculative-Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S.,
Canada and EMEA published in June 2009.

Decision Insight Information Group (US) I, Inc., is a leading
supplier of property information and related solutions to the
financial services sector in the U.S., Canada, U.K. and Ireland.
The company was formed in January 2011 when TPG Capital, L.P.
acquire the Information Products division of MacDonald, Dettwiler
and Associates, Ltd.

DIGITAL GENERATION: S&P Cuts CCR to 'B+'; Still on Watch Negative
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its ratings (including
the corporate credit rating) on Irving, Texas-based Digital
Generation Inc. to 'B+' from 'BB-'. "The ratings remain on
CreditWatch, where they were placed with negative implications on
July 18, 2012. The recovery rating on the secured debt remains at
'3', indicating expectations for meaningful (50%-70%) recovery of
principal in the event of default," S&P said.

"The rating action is based on Digital Generation's weaker-than-
expected operating performance in the second quarter of 2012,"
said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Andy Liu, "and possible
financial covenant pressure if operating performance does not
strengthen in the second half of 2012 and into 2013."

"The original CreditWatch listing was based on Digital
Generation's July announcement that it was exploring strategic
alternatives to increase shareholder value. Possible alternatives
include partnerships, business model alternatives, a sale, or
other transaction," S&P said.

"Digital Generation's operating performance has been below our
expectations. In the second quarter, organic revenues declined 6%
year over year, mainly on weakness in its online segment, and
EBITDA declined 12% year over year. Actual revenue growth during
the quarter was 42%, benefiting from acquisitions. The online
segment was affected by soft demand in Europe as the region dealt
with macroeconomic concerns and some technology transition issues
in North America. Digital Generation's TV segment is more stable,
but its profitability is being affected by lower spending by movie
studio clients as well as overall pricing pressure. As a result,
we are reducing our growth expectations for Digital Generation. We
now expect about 20% revenue growth (mainly from acquisitions) in
2012, and low-single-digit percentage revenue growth in 2013. Our
EBITDA expectations for 2012 and 2013 are for mid- to low-single-
digit percentage annual EBITDA growth," S&P said.

"In the quarter, Digital Generation's margin of compliance with
financial covenants tightened to about 10% because of the EBITDA
decline and a 0.25x step-down in the maximum debt leverage ratio.
We believe the company can maintain an adequate level covenant
compliance over the short term, with $57 million in cash, cash
equivalents, and short-term investments, and our expectation of
more than $50 million in discretionary cash flow in 2012 and 2013.
If operating performance proves weaker than our revised
expectations, the margin of compliance with covenants could narrow
when the maximum debt leverage ratio steps down again in June
2013. For the 12 months ended June 30, 2012, debt leverage was
3.8x, down modestly from 4.0x at the end of 2011, resulting from
debt reduction," S&P said.

"In resolving the CreditWatch listing, we will assess the likely
credit impact of the strategic alternative chosen by Digital
Generation's board of directors and discuss with the management
team its operating and financial strategies. If the company's
margin of financial covenant compliance decreases further from the
current level without prospects of a reversal, and cash and short-
term investments decline meaningfully, we could lower the ratings
to 'B' prior to resolution of the CreditWatch," S&P said.


DISTHENE GROUP: Receivership Order Resolves Stockholder Fight
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Associated Press reports that a judge has ordered a
multimillion-dollar family-owned enterprise in Buckingham County,
Virginia, into receivership.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch said the order signed by Fairfax
County Circuit Court Judge Marum Roush resolves a long-running
legal battle among members of the Dixon family.

Judge Roush appointed a receiver to oversee the liquidation of the
Disthene Group Inc., a holding company that controls the Dixon
family's properties.  They include Kynamite Mining Corp. and the
Cavalier Hotel in Virginia Beach, The AP relates.

The order formalizes an opinion issued by Roush that said
mismanagement and oppression of minority stockholders clouded
Disthene's operations for years.

Judge Roush heard the case after Buckingham County judges recused
themselves, The AP.

Disthene's attorneys say they will appeal the decision.


DJO GLOBAL: S&P Lowers CCR to 'B-' on Continuing High Leverage
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit
rating on Vista, Calif.-based DJO Global Inc. to 'B-' from 'B'.

"We also lowered our issue-level ratings on the outstanding
revolver, term loan, second priority senior secured notes, senior
unsecured notes, and subordinated notes of DJOFL and DJOFC as
follows: revolver and term loan to 'B+' from 'BB-', second-lien
debt to 'B' from 'B+', senior unsecured debt to 'CCC+' from 'B-',
and subordinated debt to 'CCC' from 'CCC+'," S&P said.

"Our recovery ratings on this debt are: revolver and term loan
'1', indicating very high (90% to 100%) recovery; second-lien debt
'2', indicating substantial (70% to 90%) recovery; senior
unsecured debt '5', indicating modest (10% to 30%) recovery; and
subordinated debt '6', indicating negligible (0% to 10%) recovery.
Recovery ratings indicate our estimate of principal recovery in
the event of default," S&P said.

"The rating on DJO Global overwhelmingly reflects Standard &
Poor's expectation that the company's 'highly leveraged'
(according to our criteria) financial profile will remain
characterized by very high debt leverage, nominal free cash flows,
and thin interest coverage," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Gail Hessol. "We continue to view DJO's business risk profile as
'fair,' reflecting its solid competitive position in a fairly
stable segment of the medical device market that faces substantial
price pressure."

"We project revenue growth of about 5% in 2012 propelled by
significant new product introductions and businesses acquired
during 2011, similar to our earlier forecast," added Ms. Hessol.
"In subsequent years, we assume DJO's annual revenue growth will
revert to a low-single-digit rate, broadly in line with volume
growth for the markets DJO serves. We expect price increases to
remain negligible in the face of pressure from third-party
government and commercial payors. Global efforts to control health
care costs also include third-party payor restrictions on the
types of products covered. These limitations have restrained DJO's
sales."

"Our rating outlook on DJO is stable, reflecting our expectation
of continued high leverage, low-single-digit annual revenue growth
over the medium term broadly in line with volume growth for the
markets DJO serves, and relatively stable profit margins. We also
assume that DJO will need, at most, moderate borrowing to finance
capital spending and working capital requirements," S&P said.

"We could raise our rating if a combination of wider EBITDA
margins, accelerated growth, or other factors enables DJO to
consistently generate meaningful FOCF and sustain adjusted debt to
EBITDA below 7.5x. We could consider a downgrade if we expect the
covenant cushion to fall below 10% or availability of the revolver
is substantially reduced, resulting in impaired liquidity. This
could occur if new products fail to gain traction or weaker-than-
expected economic conditions in the U.S. or Europe significantly
slow DJO's growth and depress its margins. There is also potential
for intensified price pressure, which we believe could erode
profitability," S&P said.

                       About Eastgate Tower

Eastgate Tower Hotel Associates, L.P., filed a Chapter 11 petition
(Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 12-13539) in Manhattan on Aug. 17, 2012,
with a prepack plan of reorganization.  Judge Shelley C. Chapman
oversees the case.  Lloyd A. Palans, Esq., at Bryan Cave LLP, in
New York, serves as counsel to the Debtor.

The Debtor owns property at 222 East 39th Street commonly known as
the Eastgate Hotel.  In its petition, the Debtor listed $50
million to $100 million in both assets and debts.  The Debtor owes
$69.02 million to LSREF2 Clover LLC pursuant to mortgage loans.

The Debtor defaulted on the mortgage loans in December 2011.  In
April 2012, Atlas Capital Group LLC and Rockpoint Group, owner
of membership interests of the mortgage lender, proposed a
prepackaged consensual Chapter 11 plan of liquidation.

Under the Prepack Plan submitted by the Debtor, the mortgage
lender would have an 89.82% recovery.  Unsecured creditors owed a
total of $154,000 would recover 100% and are unimpaired.

The mortgage lender has agreed to reduce the claim to $50 million
and will accept title to the Debtor's property in full
satisfaction of its claims.  The Debtor will retain cash necessary
to pay off administrative claims and unsecured claims.  Peninsula
Real Estate Fund (owner of 99% limited partnership interest) and
Eastgate Hotel Associates GP, LLC (owner of 1%) would have their
interest cancelled.  Peninsula though will retain "profits
participation rights" upon confirmation of the Plan.

On Aug. 21, the Bankruptcy Court approved a plan support agreement
under which the hotel's lender promised to cover the expenses that
Eastgate Tower can't pay during its Chapter 11 case.


EASTMAN KODAK: Makes Changes to Align With Restructuring Plan
-------------------------------------------------------------
Antonio M. Perez, chairman and chief executive officer of Eastman
Kodak Company disclosed organizational changes and expanded cost
structure reductions to reflect Kodak's strategic focus on the
Commercial, Packaging & Functional Printing Solutions and
Enterprise Services business, and the sales processes of its
Personalized Imaging and Document Imaging businesses.

"Kodak is becoming a more focused and competitively scaled
company," Perez said.  "We recognize that we must significantly
and expeditiously reduce our current cost structure, which is
designed for a much larger, more diversified set of businesses.

We are reorganizing our senior management team, an action that
will help accelerate the creation of a sustainable cost structure
for operating our business for the benefit of our customers and
position our Personalized Imaging and Document Imaging businesses
for successful sales."

Kodak said that it is making progress in the complex operational
restructuring necessary for the separation of its three businesses
and the consolidation of its corporate structure.  The company has
reduced its workforce by approximately 2,700 employees worldwide
since the beginning of 2012.  Kodak expects to reduce its
workforce by approximately an additional 1,000 employees by the
end of 2012.  The annualized savings generated by these headcount
reductions, including compensation and benefits, is approximately
$330 million.  An analysis of further operational and workforce
reductions is under way.

Under the new management structure:

The Commercial, Packaging & Functional Printing Solutions and
Enterprise Services business will primarily include the Digital
Printing and Enterprise (DP&E) and Graphics, Entertainment and
Commercial Films (GECF) units.  DP&E President Douglas J. Edwards
and GECF President Brad W. Kruchten will report directly to Perez.

Philip J. Faraci, President, is leaving the company. Perez noted
that as Chief Operating Officer, Faraci played an important role
in helping transform the company.  With Faraci's assistance, the
company has developed excellent operational leadership processes
to take forward its remaining businesses.

Chief Financial Officer Antoinette P. McCorvey has decided to
leave the company.  Rebecca A. Roof, a managing director of
AlixPartners, the company's restructuring advisory firm, will
become Chief Financial Officer on an interim basis, reporting to
Perez.  Roof has served in similar capacities for other companies
that have successfully emerged from Chapter 11 restructurings, and
she has deep experience in scaling overhead costs, implementing
cost reduction programs, managing liquidity and raising capital,
and executing asset sales - all critical areas of focus for Kodak
as the company concludes it's restructuring.

Laura G. Quatela, Kodak President, will assume the additional role
of President, Personalized Imaging, and lead that business through
its sale process.

Dolores Kruchten will become President, Document Imaging, to lead
that business through its sale process.

Quatela and Dolores Kruchten are expected to remain with Kodak
until the sales of their respective businesses are completed in
the first half of 2013.

The company will report three business segments: Digital Printing
and Enterprise; Graphics, Entertainment and Commercial Films; and
a new segment led by Laura Quatela that includes the two
businesses for sale, Personalized Imaging and Document Imaging.

"This business structure puts the right people in the right
positions to accomplish the key tasks that will help Kodak
successfully emerge," commented Perez.

"We wish Phil Faraci well. Kodak and I both owe Phil a debt of
gratitude for his outstanding contribution as Kodak's Chief
Operating Officer.  At this time, Phil and I have agreed that our
management team must be scaled and aligned with the future size
and structure of the business.

"I also want to express my appreciation to Ann McCorvey for the
substantial contributions she has made to Kodak.  She is a skilled
and dedicated senior executive, and as CFO, she played an
important role in putting our company on the path to emergence.

"Under this leadership structure, we are confident that we will
move Kodak forward to conclude the Chapter 11 process and position
the Kodak that emerges as a growing, sustainable, profitable
company that continues to meet the needs of our customers."

Rochester, New York-based Eastman Kodak Company and its U.S.
subsidiaries on Jan. 19, 2012, filed voluntarily Chapter 11
petitions (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Lead Case No. 12-10202) in Manhattan.
Subsidiaries outside of the U.S. were not included in the filing
and are expected to continue to operate as usual.

Kodak, founded in 1880 by George Eastman, was once the world's
leading producer of film and cameras.  Kodak sought bankruptcy
protection amid near-term liquidity issues brought about by
steeper-than-expected declines in Kodak's historically profitable
traditional businesses, and cash flow from the licensing and sale
of intellectual property being delayed due to litigation tactics
employed by a small number of infringing technology companies with
strong balance sheets and an awareness of Kodak's liquidity
challenges.

In recent years, Kodak has been working to transform itself from a
business primarily based on film and consumer photography to a
smaller business with a digital growth strategy focused on the
commercialization of proprietary digital imaging and printing
technologies.  Kodak has 8,900 patent and trademark registrations
and applications in the United States, as well as 13,100 foreign
patents and trademark registrations or pending registration in
roughly 160 countries.

Kodak disclosed $5.10 billion in assets and $6.75 billion in
liabilities as of Sept. 30, 2011.  The net book value of all
assets located outside the United States as of Dec. 31, 2011 is
$13.5 million.

EASTMAN KODAK: Cuts 1,000 Jobs as Cash Falls 36% in Chapter 11
--------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Eastman Kodak Co. will fire another 1,000 workers by
the year's end to "significantly and expeditiously reduce our cost
structure," the company said in a statement Sept. 10.  The new
cuts come on top of 2,700 jobs previously eliminated this year.

According to the report, Kodak said the new cuts will save
$330 million annually.  The savings follow Kodak's latest report
showing that the cash balances of the companies in bankruptcy
reorganization declined by $72 million in July, to end the month
at $438.2 million.  Kodak's cash has been declining throughout the
Chapter 11 reorganization begun in January.  By the end of July,
cash had shrunken by 36% from the $682.8 million in cash and cash
equivalents on hand at Feb. 29.

The report relates that Kodak also disclosed that Philip Faraci,
chief operating officer, and Antoinette McCovey, chief financial
officer, are leaving the company.  Kodak had been intending to
sell the digital imaging portfolio in August.  The sale was pushed
back several times and is now on the bankruptcy court's calendar
for Sept. 19, assuming there is a buyer located in the meantime.

The report notes that Kodak's $400 million in 7% convertible notes
due in 2017, which sold for 21.055 cents on the dollar on Aug. 9,
traded at 1:45 p.m. Sept. 10 for 14 cents on the dollar, according
to Trace, the bond-price reporting system of the Financial
Industry Regulatory Authority.  The decline occurred after Kodak
was unable to find a buyer for the technology by the company's
self-imposed deadline last month.

EMAK WORLDWIDE: Sues Ropes & Gray Over Shareholder Fallout
----------------------------------------------------------
Maria Chutchian at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that the successor to
fallen marketing services company EMAK Worldwide Inc. has sued

In a suit filed Aug. 30, Bankruptcy Law360 says EMAK Holdings Inc.
accuses the law firm of professional negligence after its former
attorney Christopher Austin advised it to enter into what turned
out to be an illegal transaction that transferred EMAK's primary
preferred stock shareholder into a different series of preferred
stock.

EVERGREEN TANK: S&P Affirms 'B' Corp. Credit Rating on Refinancing
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'B-' issue-level
rating to Houston-based Evergreen Tank Solutions Inc.'s (ETS)
proposed $165 million term loan. "The recovery rating is '5',
indicating our expectation of modest (10%-30%) recovery in the
event of a payment default scenario. At the same time, we affirmed
the 'B' corporate credit rating on ETS. The outlook is stable. The
company will use proceeds from the term loan to redeem its
existing $100 million second-lien term loan and approximately $33
million in senior subordinated notes. The company will also have
an unrated $65 million asset-based revolving credit facility," S&P
said.

"The ratings on ETS reflect Standard & Poor's expectation that the
company will generate slightly negative free cash flow in 2012 and
will maintain leverage less than 6x, a level we consider
appropriate for the rating," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Sarah Wyeth. S&P's forecast assumes:

    Double-digit top-line growth in 2012 as ETS benefits from good
    demand from petrochemical markets and stable shale drilling
    activity;

    A stable EBITDA margin above 50%, with some lower margin
    services offsetting operating leverage;

    Above-average capital expenditures to fund expansion,
    resulting in negative free cash flow and leverage about 4x for
    the year.

"The ratings also reflect our view of the company's 'vulnerable'
business risk profile (as defined by our criteria), characterized
by its participation in the cyclical and capital-intensive
equipment rental industry. ETS rents liquid and solid storage
containers and provides related services to refineries, chemical
companies, and oil and gas field service companies. The company
also generates a minimal amount of sales from new equipment. ETS
faces competition from larger players such as BakerCorp
(B/Stable/--) and Rain for Rent Inc. (not rated). These top three
players control a sizable portion of the industry. The remainder
of the market is very fragmented. In the long term, the company
could benefit from environmental regulation," S&P said.

"The vulnerable business risk profile assessment also reflects
ETS' narrow scope of operations and limited geographic and product
diversity. More than 80% of its revenue comes from tank and box
storage units, and its limited geographic focus makes it
susceptible to regional industry and economic volatility. The
company has revenues of less than $100 million per year and is
highly exposed to operating risks and cyclical market downturns,"
S&P said.

"The recent recession caused many of ETS' customers to reduce or
delay capital expenditures. However, ETS' expansion into areas
where horizontal drilling, or fracking, has increased, such as the
Marcellus Shale in Pennsylvania, slightly offset this lower
demand. Petrochemical customers are now returning to regular
levels of maintenance spending after cutting back during the
downturn. As with many equipment rental and leasing companies,
ETS' operating margins are high. However, significant capital
requirements offset the margins," S&P said.

"The company's financial risk profile is 'aggressive.' We believe
free cash flow generation will likely be negative in 2012 as the
company invests in new regions. In 2013, we expect a lower level
of capital expenditure to result in modestly positive free cash
flow. For the 12 months ended June 30, 2012, the pro forma ratio
of total debt to EBITDA was about 4.2x, and the ratio of funds
from operations (FFO) to total debt was about 14%, better than our
expectations for the rating of 5x-6x and 10%, respectively," S&P
said.

"The outlook is stable. We expect demand for ETS' services will be
stable, partly because of continued shale exploration. If the
company's operating performance declines or the company's rental
equipment purchases lead to negative free cash flow and push
leverage higher than 6x, we could lower the ratings. Our
assessment of the company's business risk profile as vulnerable
and financial policy as very aggressive limits the likelihood of
an upgrade," S&P said.


FAIRWAY COMMONS: Court Dismisses Chapter 11 Case
------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court in April entered an order dismissing the
chapter 11 case of Fairway Commons II, LLC.  In June, the judge
ordered the case closed in light of the dismissal.

Kobra EFS, in Roseville, California, filed for Chapter 11
bankruptcy (Bankr. E.D. Calif. Case No. 11-35250) on June 20,
2011.  Affiliates that also sought Chapter 11 protection are
Fairway Commons II, LLC (Case No. 11-35255) and Eureka Ridge, LLC
(Case No. 11-35256).  Judge Christopher M. Klein presides over the
case.  Paul A. Warner, Esq., serves as the Debtors' bankruptcy
counsel.  Kobra EFS and Fairway Commons II separately estimated
$10 million to $50 million in both assets and debts.


FIRST COMMERCIAL: Closed; Republic Bank & Trust Assumes Deposits
----------------------------------------------------------------
First Commercial Bank of Bloomington, Minn., was closed Friday,
Sept. 7, by the Minnesota Department of Commerce, which appointed
the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation as receiver.  To protect
the depositors, the FDIC entered into a purchase and assumption
agreement with Republic Bank & Trust Company of Louisville, Kent.,
to assume all of the deposits of First Commercial Bank.

The sole branch of First Commercial Bank will reopen during its
normal banking hours as a branch of Republic Bank & Trust Company.
Depositors of First Commercial Bank will automatically become
depositors of Republic Bank & Trust Company.  Deposits will
continue to be insured by the FDIC, so there is no need for
customers to change their banking relationship in order to retain
their deposit insurance coverage up to applicable limits.
Customers of First Commercial Bank should continue to use their
existing branch until they receive notice from Republic Bank &
Trust Company that it has completed systems changes to allow other
Republic Bank & Trust Company branches to process their accounts
as well.

As of June 30, 2012, First Commercial Bank had around $215.9
million in total assets and $206.8 million in total deposits.  In
addition to assuming all of the deposits of the First Commercial
Bank, Republic Bank & Trust Company agreed to purchase essentially
all of the assets.

Customers with questions about the transaction should call the
FDIC toll-free at 1-800-528-4893.  Interested parties also can
visit the FDIC's Web site at

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

The FDIC estimates that the cost to the Deposit Insurance Fund
will be $63.9 million.  Compared to other alternatives, Republic
Bank & Trust Company's acquisition was the least costly resolution
for the FDIC's DIF.  First Commercial Bank is the 41st FDIC-
insured institution to fail in the nation this year, and the
fourth in Minnesota.  The last FDIC-insured institution closed in
the state was Inter Savings Bank, fsb D/B/A InterBank, fsb, Maple
Grove, on April 27, 2012.

FR 160: Flagstaff Ranch Golf Club Seeks Case Dismissal
------------------------------------------------------
Flagstaff Ranch Golf Club, an Arizona non-profit organization, is
asking the bankruptcy court to enter an order dismissing the
bankruptcy case of FR 160 LLC.

FRGC, owner and operator of various parcels within the Debtor's
Flagstaff Ranch, says the case should be dismissed on the grounds
that the Debtor has sufficient funds to compensate all legitimate
creditors and that the Debtor's bankruptcy petition was filed in
bad faith.

FRGC says nothing in any of the Debtor's filings or disclosures to
the Court suggest a viable company.  While the Debtor may have
sufficient funds to compensate its outstanding creditors, it has
no income, no cash on hand, and apparently no prospect of future
earnings.

According to FRGC, the Debtor's schedules expressly indicate that
it has no operating assets, inventory, or equipment that would be
typical of a company that could possibly rehabilitate its
financial condition.

FRGC tells the Court that beginning in January 2012, the Debtor
ceased making timely payments of the Membership dues, Ranch
Property Owners Association dues and Flagstaff Ranch Mutual Waste
Water Company assessments owed on the Debtor's 59 lots in
Flagstaff Ranch continue to accrue as required by the Master
Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions for Flagstaff Ranch Golf
Club Residential Community and the parties' Settlement agreement.

The Debtor's debts to FRGC continue to grow, at a loss to the
bankruptcy estate, with no end in sight, FRGC points out.

The hearing on the motion to dismiss is set for Sept. 18, 2012 at
11:00 AM at 230 N. First Ave., 7th Floor, Courtroom 703, Phoenix.

FUNDEX GAMES: Board Game Maker Files for Bankruptcy in Indiana
--------------------------------------------------------------
Fundex Games Ltd., in Plainfield, Indiana, filed a petition for
Chapter 11 bankruptcy relief (Bankr. S.D. Ind. Case No. 12-10736)
on Sept. 7, 2012, disclosing $1.47 million in assets and
$8.88 million in liabilities.  The petition said debts are
primarily business debts.

Fundex is represented in the case by:

          KC Cohen, Esq.
          151 N Delaware St., Suite 1104
          Indianapolis, IN 46204
          Tel: 317-715-1845
          Fax: 317-916-0406
          E-mail: kc@esoft-legal.com

The petition was signed by Carl E. Voigt IV, the president.

According to Rachel Feintzeig, writing for Dow Jones' Daily
Bankruptcy Review, the maker of "innovative leisure time products"
-- think jump ropes, card games and board games like "Hot Potato,"
"Inch Worms" and "Booby Trap" -- is seeking court approval to use
cash collateral to keep it afloat as its case plays out.  The
company said it is planning to keep its business operating in the
ordinary course but is not ruling out the idea of selling its
assets in bankruptcy.

According to DBR, the company said in court filings it "urgently
needs working capital to continue such business operations, and is
unable to obtain post-petition financing from any source other
than the use of cash collateral.  According to the report, Fundex
said its "inability to obtain and maintain sufficient operating
liquidity to meet its post-petition obligations on a timely basis
may result in a permanent and irreplaceable loss of value in its
assets and a resultant diminution in the value of the Debtor to
the detriment of its creditors."


GARDA WORLD: Moody's Reviews 'B1' CFR/PDR for Downgrade
-------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service placed Garda World Security
Corporation's ("Garda") B1 corporate family rating, B1 probability
of default rating, B2 senior unsecured notes ratings, and the Ba1
senior secured bank facilities ratings of Garda's subsidiary, The
Garda Security Group Inc. ("GSG") under review for possible
downgrade. The company's speculative grade liquidity rating was
affirmed at SGL-3. The rating action follows Garda's announcement
that a buy-out group led by CEO Stephan Cretier and a subsidiary
of funds advised by private equity firm Apax Partners ("Apax")
have offered to acquire the company for about C$1.1 billion on an
enterprise value basis. The transaction is subject to shareholder
approval, which is expected to be sought at a shareholder meeting
in October 2012.

Ratings Rationale

The review will focus on potential changes to Garda's capital
structure, Garda's appetite for future acquisitions as a private
company, and the impact the transaction will have on its
liquidity, including its plans to deal with the potential early
repayment of its bank debt and notes, which are subject to change
of control provisions. Garda's ratings could be downgraded if
Moody's determines that Garda's initial leverage would increase
materially or if a shift in the company's acquisition strategy
were to hinder its ability to deleverage. In the event the
transaction closes and its shares are delisted, Moody's would
require Garda to continue to provide sufficient financial
information in order for the ratings to be maintained.

The principal methodology used in rating Garda was the Global
Business & Consumer Service Industry Methodology published in
October 2010. Other methodologies used include Loss Given Default
for Speculative-Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada
and EMEA published in June 2009.

Headquartered in Montreal, Canada, Garda World Security
Corporation is a global provider of cash logistics (including
armored cars), physical security (including airport pre-screening
at 28 of Canada's airports) and risk consulting services (physical
security outside of North America). Revenue for the last twelve
months ended April 30, 2012 was about $1.3 billion.

GRANITE DELLS: Faces Investor's Scrutiny Over Ranch Land
--------------------------------------------------------
Jamie Santo at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that an investor in
Granite Dells Ranch Holdings LLC asked an Arizona bankruptcy judge
on Thursday to compel the debtor to produce answers and documents
regarding the finances of a company that managed its ranch land,
which is tied up in a $90 million promissory note.

According to Bankruptcy Law360, Tri-City Investment & Development
LLC, an interested party in the Chapter 11 proceedings, filed the
request for admission, nonuniform interrogatories and documents
from Cavan Management Services under Section 2004 of the
Bankruptcy Code.

                 About Granite Dells Ranch Holdings

Scottsdale, Arizona-based Granite Dells Ranch Holdings LLC filed a
bare-bones Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. D. Ariz. Case No. 12-04962)
in Phoenix on March 13, 2012.  Judge Redfield T. Baum PCT Sr.
oversees the case.  The Debtor is represented by Alan A. Meda,
Esq., at Stinson Morrison Hecker LLP.  The Debtor disclosed
$2.22 million in assets and $157 million in liabilities as of the
Chapter 11 filing.

Cavan Management Services, LLC is the Debtor's manager.  David
Cavan, member of the firm, signed the Chapter 11 petition.

Arizona ECO Development LLC, which acquired a $83.2 million 2006
loan by the Debtor, is represented by Snell & Wilmer L.L.P.  The
resolution authorizing the Debtor's bankruptcy filing says the
Company is commencing legal actions against Stuart Swanson, AED,
and related entities relating to the purchase by Mr. Swanson of a
promissory note payable by the Company to the parties that sold a
certain property to the Company.  According to Law 360, AED sued
Granite Dells on March 6 asking the Arizona court to appoint a
receiver.  Arizona ECO is foreclosing on a secured loan backed by
15,000 acres of Arizona land.

The United States Trustee said that an official committee has not
been appointed in the bankruptcy case of Granite Dells because an
insufficient number of unsecured creditors have expressed interest
in serving on a committee.


HARRISBURG, PA: Gov. Corbett Blasts Suit Challenging Takeover
-------------------------------------------------------------
Matt Fair at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that Pennsylvania Gov. Tom
Corbett asked a federal judge Wednesday to throw out a lawsuit by
a group of Harrisburg City Council members challenging the state's
takeover of the fiscally troubled city, arguing that the
legislators lacked legal standing to bring the complaint.

                  About Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

The city of Harrisburg, in Pennsylvania, is coping with debt
related to a failed revamp of an incinerator.  The city is
$65 million in default on $242 million owing on bonds sold to
finance an incinerator that converts trash to energy.

The Harrisburg city council voted 4-3 on Oct. 11, 2011, to
authorize the filing of a Chapter 9 municipal bankruptcy (Bankr.
M.D. Pa. Case No. 11-06938).  The city claims to be insolvent,
unable to pay its debt and in imminent danger of having
tax revenue seized by holders of defaulted bonds.

Judge Mary D. France presided over the Chapter 9 case.  Mark D.
Schwartz, Esq. and David A. Gradwohl, Esq., served as Harrisburg's
counsel.  The petition estimated $100 million to $500 million in
assets and debts.  Susan Wilson, the city's chairperson on Budget
and Finance, signed the petition.

Harrisburg said in court papers it is in imminent jeopardy through
six pending legal actions by creditors with respect to a number of
outstanding bond issues relating to the Harrisburg Materials,
Energy, Recycling and Recovery Facilities, which processes waste
into steam and electrical energy.  The owner and operator of the
incinerator is The Harrisburg Authority, which is unable to pay
the bond issues.  The city is the primary guarantor under each
bond issue.  The lawsuits were filed by Dauphin County, where
Harrisburg is located, Joseph and Jacalyn Lahr, TD Bank N.A., and
Covanta Harrisburg Inc.

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the County of Dauphin, and
Harrisburg city mayor Linda D. Thompson and other creditors and
interested parties objected to the Chapter 9 petition.  The state
later adopted a new law allowing the governor to appoint a
receiver.

Kenneth W. Lee, Esq., Christopher E. Fisher, Esq., Beverly Weiss
Manne, Esq., and Michael A. Shiner, Esq., at Tucker Arensberg,
P.C., represented Mayor Thompson in the Chapter 9 case. Counsel to
the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania was Neal D. Colton, Esq., Jeffrey
G. Weil, Esq., Eric L. Scherling, Esq., at Cozen O'Connor.

In November 2011, the Bankruptcy Judge dismissed the Chapter 9
case because (1) the City Council did not have the authority under
the Optional Third Class City Charter Law and the Third Class City
Code to commence a bankruptcy case on behalf of Harrisburg and (2)
the City was not specifically authorized under state law to be a
debtor under Chapter 9 as required by 11 U.S.C. Sec. 109(c)(2).

Dismissal of the Chapter 9 petition was upheld in a U.S. District
Court.

That same month, the state governor appointed David Unkovic as
receiver for Harrisburg.  Mr. Unkovic is represented by the
Municipal Recovery & Restructuring group of McKenna Long &
Aldridge LLP, led by Keith Mason, Esq., co-chair of the group.

Mr. Unkovic resigned as receiver March 30, 2012.


HAWKER BEECHCRAFT: Seeks OK for $2.9MM Land Sale to Wichita
-----------------------------------------------------------
Bill Donahue at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that Hawker Beechcraft
Inc. asked a New York bankruptcy judge Thursday to allow it to
sell a strip of highway-adjacent property to Wichita, Kan., for
$2.9 million, saying it feared the city would take the land
through eminent domain.

According to Bankruptcy Law360, the bankrupt aircraft maker said
it had little use for the roughly 423,000-square-foot patch of
land along U.S. 54 in Wichita, and that selling the land now would
bring a better return for investors than if the city seizes the
land for a planned highway expansion.

IAMGOLD CORP: Moody's Assigns 'Ba3' CFR/PDR; Outlook Stable
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Ba3 corporate family rating
and probability of default rating to IAMGOLD Corporation
(IAMGOLD). At the same time Moody's assigned a B1 rating to the
company's $500 million guaranteed senior subordinated notes due
2020 and an SGL-2 Speculative Grade Liquidity rating. The notes
are subordinated to "Designated Senior Debt" as defined in the
offering memorandum, which includes the company's $500 million
guaranteed revolving credit facility. The notes will be senior to
future subordinated indebtedness and rank at parity with future
senior indebtedness. The outlook is stable. This is the first time
Moody's has rated IAMGOLD.

Assignments:

  Issuer: IAMGOLD Corp. (IAG)

     Probability of Default Rating, Assigned Ba3

     Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, Assigned SGL-2

     Corporate Family Rating, Assigned Ba3

    Subordinate Regular Bond/Debenture, B1, LGD5, 74%

    Subordinate Regular Bond/Debenture, B1, LGD5, 74%

Ratings Rationale

IAMGOLD's Ba3 Corporate Family and Probability of Default Ratings
incorporate the company's exposure to metal price volatility,
operating and development cost inflation and substantial
investment requirements to grow and diversify the company's
production profile. While Moody's recognizes the importance of
these investment requirements to IAMGOLD'S future operations,
Moody's anticipates that internal funding for expansionary capital
spending, together with gold price volatility, could pressure free
cash flow. However the ratings acknowledge the current strength in
gold prices (approximately $1,650/oz in the first half of 2012),
and Moody's anticipates that strong gold prices will continue
through the balance of 2012 and into 2013. Over this time frame,
the company is expected to continue to generate solid earnings and
operating cash flow. Over the medium term, Moody's expects gold
prices to moderate as a broad global economic recovery takes hold.
The company's acceptable liquidity position is also recognized in
the rating although the drawdown in cash balances to fund the
acquisition of Trelawney Mining and Exploration Inc. has reduced
the level of internal sources available to provide support to the
expansion programs.

However, the ratings consider the heightened political risks of
the countries in which IAMGOLD operates, particularly Burkina Faso
(unrated) and Mali (unrated), which operations accounted for
roughly 55% of 2011 gold production, its relatively high cost
structure, and its moderate size versus other companies in the
sector. As such, a materialization of any of these risks
including, but not limited to, threats to the physical security of
the company's mines, supply chain disruptions, and changes in
government-business agreements in the form of higher royalty or
tax payments could have a substantial impact on the company's
operations. While it is recognized that the company has in place a
rigorous policy for monitoring and managing operating risk in
these countries, Moody's believes these operations remain highly
exposed to event risk, not only from increasing nationalism
sentiment by countries with respect to their natural resources but
also from government political instability. In addition, a lack of
well-developed infrastructure in areas where key mining operations
are located has resulted in high cash costs relative to industry
peers. Cost creep is expected to continue although new production,
once on stream, should help mitigate the degree of upward movement
and improve the overall cost position. In addition, the company's
currently strong metrics reflect the benefit of high gold prices
over the last several years and the lack of debt in the capital
structure. Moody's expects metrics to deteriorate with the
addition of debt to the capital structure and as gold prices
moderate.

The ratings also consider the contribution from the Rosebel mine
(roughly 43% of 2011 gold production) in Suriname (Ba3 positive),
the advanced stage of the Westwood project in Canada, which
remains on schedule for start-up in early 2013 and will help
diversify geographic and geopolitical risk, and the relative
stability of the Canadian based niobium operations. The rating
reflects Moody's view that earnings and cash flow generating
capacity from these operations should provide sufficient support
despite the stated risks seen in the operations in Burkina Faso
and Mali. Moody's assumes that should political issues escalate,
the company would scale back capital expenditures in these
countries and minimize the degree of negative free cash flow over
the next several years.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectation for gold prices to
continue at strong levels over the next twelve to eighteen months,
which will enhance internal cash flow generation to support
capital investment requirements. The outlook also anticipates that
the Westwood mine will remain on schedule for start-up in early
2013 and as it ramps up will begin to contribute earnings to the
company. Captured in the outlook as well is Moody's view that the
company will continue to carefully monitor events within the
countries in which it operates, such as Mali, and slow capital
investment should this be necessary.

Upward movement in the rating is unlikely over the next twelve to
eighteen months given the need to bring Westwood on line reach
full production thereby improving the geopolitical risk profile of
the company.

Downward rating pressure could develop should Westwood be
significantly delayed or experience material cost overruns, or
operational issues develop at any of its producing mines that
would have medium term implications. In addition, downward
pressure would result should leverage, as measured by the
debt/EBITDA ratio exceed 3.5x on a sustainable basis, (operating
cash flow less dividends)/debt be less than 15%, or the company's
liquidity position materially contract.

IAMGOLD's SGL-2 speculative grade liquidity rating reflects the
good liquidity position the company exhibits. Moody's believes
that the company will generate good operating cash flows over the
next 12 to 18 months, which together with cash on hand
(approximately $615 million at June 3, 2012, including gold
bullion holdings at market value) and proceeds from the debt
issuance should fund the more aggressive capital expenditure plans
and working capital requirements although additional funding would
likely be necessary should gold prices move below roughly
$1,400/oz or there be negative developments with respect to
operations in Burkina Faso.

IAMGOLD's external liquidity sources consist of a $500 million
senior unsecured revolving credit facility and a $250 million
senior unsecured revolving credit facility at the company's Niobec
subsidiary both expiring in February 2016. Moody's believes that
the both revolvers will remain undrawn over the next four
quarters. The company is required to satisfy financial maintenance
covenants under the credit facility, including a maximum leverage
ratio of 3.5 times, and minimum tangible net worth of $2.25
billion plus 50% of net income. Given its low pro forma debt
levels and robust earnings supported by high gold prices, Moody's
expects that the company will comply with its covenants in the
next 12 to 18 months with ample cushion.

The B1 rating on the $500 million notes reflects their lower
position in the liability waterfall to the $500 million revolving
credit facility. The notes are explicitly subordinated to the
revolver and other designated indebtedness as define. However, the
notes will rank pari passu with any future senior unsecured
indebtedness and senior to any future subordinated indebtedness.

The principal methodology used in rating IAG was the Global Mining
Industry Methodology published in May 2009. Other methodologies
used include Loss Given Default for Speculative-Grade Non-
Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada and EMEA published in June
2009.

Headquartered in Toronto, Canada, IAMGOLD is primarily a gold
producer with operating mines in Suriname, Burkina Faso, Mali and
developing gold mines in Canada. The company also produces
niobium, which is used in steel production to provide greater
strength and lighter weight. Revenues for the twelve months
through June 30, 2012 were $1.7 billion.


IAMGOLD CORP: S&P Gives 'BB-' Corp. Credit Rating; Outlook Stable
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'BB-' long-term
corporate credit rating and stable outlook to Toronto-based gold
producer IAMGOLD Corp.

"At the same time, Standard & Poor's assigned its 'BB-' issue-
level rating and '4' recovery rating to IAMGOLD's proposed US$500
million senior unsecured notes. A '4' recovery rating indicates
our expectation of average (30%-50%) recovery in a default
scenario. We understand that proceeds from the proposed notes will
be used for general corporate purposes namely funding IAMGOLD's
growth-oriented capital spending plans in the next several years,"
S&P said.

"The ratings on IAMGOLD reflect what we view as the company's
exposure to volatile commodity prices, operating and political
risks from mining in higher risk countries, heavy reliance on
several key assets, and the project execution risks surrounding
its large capital spending plans," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Donald Marleau. "These weaknesses are somewhat offset,
in our view, by the company's low pro forma debt burden, strong
cash flow protection measures amid cyclically high metals prices,
and an expanding production base," Mr. Marleau added.

"IAMGOLD operates three gold mines in Burkina Faso (B/Stable/B),
Suriname (BB-/Stable/B), and Canada (AAA/Stable/A-1+), and holds
joint venture interests in two gold mines in Mali (not rated). The
company operates a niobium mine in the Province of Quebec
(A+/Stable/A-1+) and is developing gold projects in Ontario and
Quebec," S&P said.

"The stable outlook on IAMGOLD reflects our view that steady gold
production in the next year should support strong funds from
operations (FFO) and credit measure generation through 2013. We
estimate that, at an average gold price of US$1,400 per ounce (oz)
through next year, the company should generate an annual EBITDA of
more than US$700 million with a debt-to-EBITDA leverage ratio of
about 1x and an FFO-to-debt ratio of about 95%," S&P said.

"We could lower the ratings on IAMGOLD if mine-level or sovereign-
related operating disruptions or lower metals prices lead to a
severe and extended curtailment of cash flow generation. For
example, a gold price under US$1,200 per oz alongside a 25%
decline in gold production would increase its debt-to-EBITDA
leverage ratio above 2.5x and decrease its FFO-to-debt ratio to
below 60%," S&P said.

"An upward rating action is unlikely in the next 12 to 18 months
given the company's multi-year, growth-oriented capital spending
initiatives, continuing exposure to operating costs pressures, and
the concentration of its cash flow in high-risk jurisdictions,"
S&P said.


ICP ASSET: Founder Settles SEC Lawsuit Over CDO Fraud
-----------------------------------------------------
The Securities and Exchange Commission said Friday that New York-
based investment advisory firm ICP Asset Management and its
founder and president Thomas C. Priore have agreed to settle the
agency's charges that they defrauded several collateralized debt
obligations (CDOs) they managed.

ICP, Priore, and related entities have agreed to pay more than $23
million to settle the case the SEC filed against them in June 2010
in federal court in Manhattan.  The SEC alleged they engaged in
fraudulent practices and misrepresentations that caused the CDOs
to overpay for securities and lose millions of dollars.  Priore
and the ICP companies also improperly obtained fees and
undisclosed profits at the expense of the CDOs and their
investors.

"The settlement with Priore and ICP sends a clear message that
investment advisers must always act in the best interests of their
advisory clients, even if those clients are sophisticated
investors," said George S. Canellos, Deputy Director of the SEC's
Division of Enforcement.  "When advisers put their own interests
ahead of their clients' interests, the SEC will seek to hold them
accountable."

The court approved the settlement terms on September 6. The final
judgment orders Priore to pay disgorgement of $797,337,
prejudgment interest of $215,045, and a penalty of $487,618.  ICP
and its holding company Institutional Credit Partners LLC are
required, on a joint and several basis, to pay disgorgement of
$13,916,005 and prejudgment interest of $3,709,028.  ICP also must
pay a penalty of $650,000.  An affiliated broker-dealer ICP
Securities LLC is ordered to pay disgorgement of $1,637,581,
prejudgment interest of $301,893, and a penalty of $1,939,474.
Priore also agreed to settle an administrative proceeding against
him and be barred from association with any broker, dealer,
investment adviser, municipal securities dealer, or transfer
agent, and from participating in any offering of a penny stock.
He has a right to reapply for association or participation after a
period of five years.

Priore and the ICP companies also consented, without admitting or
denying the SEC's allegations, to permanent injunctions enjoining
them from future violations of the securities laws that they were
alleged to have violated, which include Section 17(a) of the
Securities Act of 1933, Sections 10(b) and 15(c)(1)(A) of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rules 10b-3 and 10b-5, and
Sections 206(1), (2), (3), and (4) of the Investment Advisers Act
of 1940 and Rules 204-2, 206(4)-7 and 206(4)-8.

The SEC's investigation was conducted by Celeste A. Chase, Joseph
Boryshansky, Joshua Pater, Susannah Dunn, and Kenneth Gottlieb of
the New York Regional Office.  Joseph Boryshansky led the
litigation with assistance from Jack Kaufman, Mark Germann, Joshua
Pater, and Susannah Dunn.

JEFFERSON COUNTY: Residents Say Illegal Swaps Cost County $372MM
----------------------------------------------------------------
Brian Mahoney at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that a proposed class
of Jefferson County, Ala., ratepayers asked a bankruptcy judge
Thursday to reduce $3 billion in debt refinancing on county sewer
renovations, saying a slew of banks and a law firm are liable for
allegedly illegal interest rate swaps that cost the county $372
million.

In an adversary complaint, the ratepayers ? led by Birmingham City
Council President Roderick V. Royal ? accuse The Bank of New York
Mellon Corp. and JP Morgan Chase Bank NA of negotiating needless
interest rate swaps while restructuring, according to Bankruptcy
Law360.

                      About Jefferson County

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

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

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

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

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

Judge Thomas B. Bennett presides over the Chapter 9 case.  Lawyers
at Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP and Klee, Tuchin, Bogdanoff &
Stern LLP, led by Kenneth Klee, represent the Debtor as counsel.
Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC serves as claims and noticing
agent.  Jefferson estimated more than $1 billion in assets.  The
petition was signed by David Carrington, president.

The bankruptcy judge in January 2012 ruled that the state court-
appointed receiver for the sewer system largely lost control as a
result of the bankruptcy. Before deciding whether Jefferson County
is eligible for Chapter 9, the bankruptcy judge will allow the
Alabama Supreme Court to decide whether sewer warrants are the
equivalent of "funding or refunding bonds" required under state
law before a municipality can be in bankruptcy.

U.S. District Judge Thomas B. Bennett ruled in March 2012 that
Jefferson County is eligible under state law to pursue a debt
restructuring under Chapter 9.  Holders of more than $3 billion in
defaulted sewer debt had challenged the county's right to be in
Chapter 9.


JOHN V. WARREN: Files for Chapter 7 Liquidation
-----------------------------------------------
Larry Rulison at The Times Union reports that John V. Warren Inc.,
a mechanical construction firm based in Green Island, New York,
filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy liquidation on Aug. 30.

The Times Union relates that the company, which was founded in
1946 to do pipe construction at oil terminals at the ports of
Albany and Rensselaer, appears to have encountered financial
problems dating back to last year.

According to the report, bankruptcy records show that in March, an
auction was held for the company's equipment, supply stock and
even office furniture in connection with $2.5 million owed to TD
Bank.

Local unions have also claimed in civil lawsuits that the company
fell behind on union pension fund contributions, the report adds.

The 65-year-old business, which also had a Plattsburgh office,
reported assets of $65,000 and debt of $6.01 million, according to
The Business Review.


K-V PHARMACEUTICAL: D.C. Court Dismisses Lawsuit Against FDA
------------------------------------------------------------
District Judge Amy Berman Jackson dismissed the lawsuit, K-V
Pharmaceutical Company, et al., Plaintiffs, v. United States Food
and Drug Administration, et al., Defendants, Civil Action No.
12-1105 (D. D.C.), pursuant to a Sept. 6, 2012 Memorandum Opinion
available at http://is.gd/WELz8dfrom Leagle.com.

K-V Pharmaceutical and its wholly owned subsidiary, Ther-RX
Corporation, own and market a drug called Makena, which is a
hydroxyprogestoerone caproate injection.  Makena was approved in
2011 for use by pregnant women with a history of preterm birth to
reduce the risk that they would experience another preterm birth.
Plaintiffs have sued the FDA, its Commissioner Margaret A.
Hamburg, the United States Department of Health & Human Services,
and HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, alleging that the defendants
are violating the Administrative Procedure Act and several
provisions of the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act by failing to take
action against pharmacies that compound the drug and thereby
creating a cheaper alternative for doctors to prescribe. The
compounded form of the drug is referred to as "17P" in the
lawsuit.

The plaintiffs challenge a March 30, 2011 press release in which
FDA announced its intention not to take enforcement action against
the compounders except under certain circumstances.  They also
challenge FDA's failure to block foreign shipments of the active
pharmaceutical ingredient used in 17P from entering the United
States.  According to the plaintiffs, FDA's actions have given
rise to unlawful competition with Makena and caused them
irreparable economic harm.

The defendants moved to dismiss the action under Federal Rules of
Civil Procedure 12(b)(1) and 12(b)(6).  They argue that the
plaintiffs lack standing, and that the actions they challenge are
the types of discretionary enforcement decisions that the Supreme
Court found to be unreviewable in Heckler v. Chaney, 470 U.S. 821
(1985).  Alternatively, they argue that the complaint fails to
state a claim upon which relief can be granted.

Judge Jackson concludes that Counts I through III of the complaint
challenge FDA's discretionary enforcement activities and therefore
assert unreviewable claims, and that Count IV fails to state a
claim under Rule 12(b)(6).

KYANITE MINING: Judge Enters Liquidation Order
----------------------------------------------
Bill McKelway at Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that one of
Virginia's most closely held mining companies, fiercely controlled
for more than a half century by a Buckingham County family, could
go into receivership and be dissolved in coming weeks under a
court decision that concludes the company oppressed minority
shareholders and misapplied millions of dollars in corporate
assets.

The report relates that in a stunning decision issued Aug. 30 that
followed years of intrafamily legal wrangling within the Dixon
family and its operation of the Kyanite Mining Corp., a Fairfax
County judge said in a 41-page ruling that she will appoint a
receiver "to wind up and liquidate the business and affairs of the
corporation."

According to the report, Circuit Judge Jane Marun Roush, named to
hear the case after local judges recused themselves and who heard
more than two weeks of testimony in the case earlier this summer,
called her decision a "drastic" yet appropriate remedy in light of
testimony that she said showed a long history of unfair stock
manipulation, exorbitant salaries for company officers, and a use
of assets that embellished the estates of company leaders and
allowed other assets to languish unproductively.

Alan D. Wingfield, lead attorney for Kyanite, which has been
represented by the Richmond-based Troutman Sanders law firm and is
now known as the Disthene Group Inc., said in an email August 30
that "Disthene is considering its next steps in this lengthy court
case."

The Dixon family mining operations and other holdings, including
the Cavalier Hotel in Virginia Beach and thousands of acres of
old-growth woodlands in central Virginia, have been controlled
since 1974 by Gene B. Dixon Jr., 69, who assumed that role upon
the death of his father in 1974.

The report notes that legal actions have been ongoing for several
years and generally have pitted Dixon Jr., his son and other
company officials against three minority shareholders:  the
husband of Gene Dixon's deceased sister and her two children,
Curtis Dixon Colgate and Sharon M. Newcomb.

Kyanite Mining Corp. is one of rural Buckingham's largest
employers but is virtually unknown of outside its tight circle of
business interests, Richmond Times-Dispatch Richmond Times-
Dispatch discloses.

LIGHTSQUARED INC: U.S. Trustee Joins Opposition to Bonuses
----------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that LightSquared Inc. will face opposition from the U.S.
Trustee when the company appears at a Sept. 12 hearing for
approval of a program that could pay $6 million in bonuses to the
top four executives.  Secured lenders already lodged their
objections.

According to the report, the U.S. Trustee says that the goals to
warrant paying bonuses are "not challenging" and thus demonstrate
that the program would bestow retention bonuses, which Congress
prohibits for senior executives of bankrupt companies.  The
Justice Department's bankruptcy watchdog contends that the bonuses
would only reward executives for what they're paid to do in the
first place.  In her objection, the U.S. Trustee criticizes the
program for paying a bonus equal to a year's salary for merely
meeting a budget.  She also takes issue with another aspect of the
program that would pay additional bonuses even if a reorganization
plan or sale of the company isn't completed within two years.

                      About LightSquared Inc.

LightSquared Inc. and 19 of its affiliates filed Chapter 11
bankruptcy petitions (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Lead Case No. 12-12080) on
May 14, 2012, as the Company seeks to resolve regulatory issues
that have prevented it from building its coast-to-coast integrated
satellite 4G wireless network.

LightSquared had invested more than $4 billion to deploy an
integrated satellite-terrestrial network.  In February 2012,
however, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission told
LightSquared the agency would revoke a license to build out the
network as it would interfere with global positioning systems used
by the military and various industries.  In March 2012, the
Company's partner, Sprint, canceled a master services agreement.
LightSquared's lenders deemed the termination of the Sprint
agreement would trigger cross-defaults under LightSquared's
prepetition credit agreements.

LightSquared and its prepetition lenders attempted to negotiate a
global restructuring that would provide LightSquared with
liquidity and runway necessary to resolve its issues with the FCC.
Despite working diligently and in good faith, however,
LightSquared and the lenders were not able to consummate a global
restructuring on terms acceptable to all interested parties,
prompting the bankruptcy filing.

As of the Petition Date, the Debtors employed roughly 168 people
in the United States and Canada.  As of Feb. 29, 2012, the Debtors
had $4.48 billion in assets (book value) and $2.29 billion in
liabilities.

LightSquared also sought ancillary relief in Canada on behalf of
all of the Debtors, pursuant to the Companies' Creditors
Arrangement Act (Canada) R.S.C. 1985, c. C-36 as amended, in the
Ontario Superior Court of Justice (Commercial List) in Toronto,
Ontario, Canada.  The purpose of the ancillary proceedings is to
request the Canadian Court to recognize the Chapter 11 cases as a
"foreign main proceeding" under the applicable provisions of the
CCAA to, among other things, protect the Debtors' assets and
operations in Canada.  The Debtors named affiliate LightSquared LP
to act as the "foreign representative" on behalf of the Debtors'
estates.

Judge Shelley C. Chapman presides over the Chapter 11 case.
Lawyers at Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP serve as counsel to
the Debtors.  Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC serves as claims and
notice agent.

Counsel to UBS AG as agent under the October 2010 facility is
Melissa S. Alwang, Esq., at Latham & Watkins LLP.

The ad hoc secured group of lenders under the Debtors' October
2010 facility was formed in April 2012 to negotiate an out-of-
court restructuring.  The members are Appaloosa Management L.P.;
Capital Research and Management Company; Fortress Investment
Group; Knighthead Capital Management LLC; and Redwood Capital
Management.  Counsel to the ad hoc secured group is Thomas E.
Lauria, Esq., at White & Case LLP.

Philip Falcone's Harbinger Capital Partners indirectly owns 96% of
LightSquared's outstanding common stock.  Harbinger and certain of
its managed and affiliated funds and wholly owned subsidiaries,
including HGW US Holding Company, L.P., Blue Line DZM Corp., and
Harbinger Capital Partners SP, Inc., are represented in the case
by Stephen Karotkin, Esq., at Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP.

The Office of the U.S. Trustee has not appointed a statutory
committee of unsecured creditors.


LOCAL INSIGHT: Moody's Cuts Ratings on Two Note Classes to 'C'
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded two classes of notes issued
in two series of the Local Insight Media (LIM) securitization
transaction. The transaction is a securitization of telephone
directory publishing businesses (primarily Yellow Pages) of CBD
Media LLC (CBD), a publisher of print and online directories in
the greater Cincinnati metropolitan area, ACS Media LLC (ACS), a
publisher of print and online directories in Alaska, and HYP Media
LLC (HYP), a publisher of print and online directories in Hawaii.
Essentially all assets of CBD, ACS and HYP were transferred to
securitization entities, which issued fixed rate notes supported
by the assets.

The complete rating actions are as follows:

Issuer: Local Insight Media Finance LLC, Series 2007-1

  Cl. A-2, Downgraded to C (sf); previously on Apr 7, 2011
  Downgraded to Caa3 (sf)

Issuer: Local Insight Media Finance LLC/ACS Media Finance LLC/CBD
Media Finance LLC and HYP Media Finance LLC - Series 2008-1

  Cl. A-2, Downgraded to C (sf); previously on Mar 4, 2011
  Downgraded to Caa3 (sf)

Ratings Rationale

The rating actions reflect continued declines in cash collections,
Net Securitizable Cash Flow (collections minus transaction
expenses) and Debt Service Coverage Ratio (DSCR). As a result of
the continued declines in collections, the leverage ratio (senior
notes divided by the last 12 months of Net Securitizable Cash
Flow) has increased to 16.5x, more than doubling from the 7.4x
leverage at closing. For the July 2012 quarterly payment date
DSCR, calculated as a ratio of Net Securitizable Cash Flow to the
interest payments on the notes, each summed up over the previous
twelve months, was 0.85, indicating that the transaction has not
generated sufficient amount of cash to make the required interest
payments on the securities. To compensate for the cash shortfalls
the transaction has been drawing on the interest reserve account.
Moody's expects that the reserve account will be depleted by the
end of 2012 or early 2013, leading to a default in the payment of
interest on the notes.

Moody's notes that LIM's business has come under increased
pressure in recent years due to competition from internet-based
search engines and recessionary conditions, which have
particularly effected the small and medium size businesses who are
the main users of print-based advertising.

Principal methodology used in these rating actions includes cash
flow simulation analysis and the assessment of the ability of the
net cash flows to make timely interest payments on the notes and
ultimate repayment of the principal by the legal maturity date.
Moody's identified key drivers of the cash flow and estimated
their expected values over the course of the transaction as well
as the probability distribution around these values based on the
analysis of the historical collateral performance trends. The
simulated revenues are then fed through the payment waterfall to
assess performance of the notes under different expected and
stressed scenarios. A resulting loss of yield to investors, if
any, was calculated.

Other methodologies and factors that may have been considered in
the process of rating this issuer can be found on Moody's website.
The main sources of uncertainty for this transaction include the
demand for advertising in Yellow Pages and the timing of economic
recovery, which can affect the demand for advertising by small and
medium-sized businesses.

The senior notes issued in this transaction are insured by Ambac
Assurance Corporation (Ambac). Moody's withdrew its ratings on
Ambac on 7 April 2011. Moody's press release issued on that date
states that ratings on structured finance securities guaranteed by
Ambac will be maintained at the underlying ratings, which reflect
the intrinsic credit quality of the securities. The principal
methodology used in determining the underlying rating is the same
as the methodology for rating securities that do not have a
financial guaranty and is described earlier.

MEDICAL DEVELOPMENT: Wells Fargo Awarded $30-Mil. Judgment
----------------------------------------------------------
Phil Milford and Dawn McCarty at Bloomberg News report that
Wells Fargo & Co. won a $30 million judgment and the appointment
of a permanent receiver in its lawsuit against prison-service
provider Medical Development International Ltd. over the repayment
of loans.

Wells Fargo sued Ponte Vedra, Florida-based MDI in March in
Delaware Chancery Court, alleging it defaulted on loans used for
executive borrowing, a working farm, a biographical screenplay
about Chief Executive Officer Richard Willich and payments for a
Tesla Roadster, according to Bloomberg News.

Bloomberg News notes that the receiver, Ronald Winters of Alvarez
& Marsal Healthcare Industry Group LLC, is authorized "to do any
and all acts necessary for the proper and lawful conduct" of
company affairs, lawyers for both sides said in a stipulation
approved Sept. 7 by Judge Samuel Glasscock III.

MDI was in a deteriorated financial condition and wasn't being
operated in the best interests of stakeholders, the bank contended
in the complaint, Bloomberg News says.

Bloomberg News notes that MDI officials sued in state court in St.
Johns County, Florida, saying Wells Fargo "abandoned its
traditional role as lender and took up the role of corporate
raider" to divert company assets.

Bloomberg News relates that the parties agreed to pay Willich
about $33,000 as a September salary, and $15,000 a month through
Dec. 31, as a temporary consultant, court papers show.

Mr. Winters will also have the right to make any decisions for the
company, including "the authority to file for bankruptcy,"
according to court papers, Bloomberg News notes.

The Delaware case is Wells Fargo Bank v. Medical Development
International Ltd., CA7352, Delaware Chancery Court (Wilmington).
The Florida case is MDI v. Wells Fargo Bank, CA12- 0570, Florida
Circuit Court, Seventh Judicial Circuit (St. Johns County).

banks' cash collateral until the end of March.  Trustee Louis
Freeh is using what was originally $25.3 million to pay costs of

MONEY TREE: Trustee Selling 46 Branches to Rival for $4.4MM
-----------------------------------------------------------
S. Gregory Hays, the chapter 11 trustee appointed in the Chapter
11 cases of Small Loans, Inc., The Money Tree, Inc., and their
debtor-affiliates, filed an 89-page document seeking Bankruptcy
Court permission to sell certain consumer credit accounts, notes,
receivables, security instruments, insurance policies and other
ancillary products, along with certain furniture, fixtures, and
equipment, and other incidental assets collectively comprising the
individual branch offices owned and operated by the Debtors to
competitor Western Shamrock Corporation, subject to higher and
better offers, free and clear of liens, claims and encumbrances.
The Chapter 11 Trustee also seeks approving of terms for the
submission of competing offers and auction procedures.

Western Shamrock proposes to purchase all of the Branches owned
and operated by the Debtors, including:

     * 9 Branches in Alabama,
     * 1 Branch in Florida,
     * 29 Branches in Georgia, and
     * 7 Branches in Louisiana.

Western Shamrock has offered $4,375,000 for the assets.  Western
Shamrock has agreed to pay a deposit equal to 5% of the Purchase
Price ($218,750) to the Chapter 11 Trustee.  The Purchase Price is
to be paid to the Trustee by wire transfer at closing, less the
deposit paid by Western Shamrock.

The Chapter 11 Trustee has marketed and advertised the Debtors'
businesses and assets, including the Branches, for potential sale
and has used the services of Renova Partners, LLC, as the
Trustee's broker.  The Trustee has determined that selling the
Branches is in the best interest of the Debtors' estates and their
creditors.

Western Shamrock will deposit 1% of the Purchase Price with an
escrow agent and the funds will be placed in an interest bearing
account at the time of closing and used to compensate Western
Shamrock with respect to any invalid loans.

Western Shamrock has agreed to adopt the privacy policy that the
Debtors had in place as of the Petition Date regarding the
consumer credit accounts, notes, receivables, security
instruments, insurance policies and other ancillary products that
are being purchased.

To maximize the value received for the Branches, the Chapter 11
Trustee proposes that other parties be permitted to make competing
offers for the Branches at an auction.  The Trustee proposes that
the Branches be offered at an auction, and that competing bids be
submitted by others for all of the Branches as a single "lot," or
separately with the goal of bringing the highest aggregate bid
price.  The Trustee will conduct an auction if competing bids are
received.  Rival offers must be sent to John D. Elrod --
elrodj@gtlaw.com -- as counsel for the Creditors' Committee.

The Chapter 11 Trustee also seeks Court approval to offer for sale
at the Auction any and all remaining tangible assets owned by the
Debtors -- excluding causes of action -- that are not included in
the Branches to be sold to Western Shamrock.  The aggregate value
of the Remaining Assets is less than $250,000.

                         About Money Tree

Bainbridge, Georgia-based The Money Tree Inc. --
http://www.moneytreeinc.com/-- operates a network of lending
branches across the Southeast, concentrated in Georgia, Florida
and Alabama.  The Company and four affiliates filed for Chapter 11
bankruptcy (Bankr. M.D. Ala. Case Nos. 11-12254 thru 11-12258) on
Dec. 16, 2011.  The other debtor-affiliates are Small Loans, Inc.,
The Money Tree of Louisiana, Inc., The Money Tree of Florida Inc.,
and The Money Tree of Georgia Inc.

Judge William R. Sawyer oversees the case, replacing Judge Dwight
H. Williams, Jr.  Max A. Moseley, Esq., at Baker Donelson Bearman
Caldwell & Berkow, P.C., serves as the Debtors' counsel.  The
Debtors hired Warren, Averett, Kimbrough & Marino, LLC, as
restructuring advisors.

The Money Tree Inc. disclosed $73,413,612 in assets and
$73,050,785 in liabilities as of the Chapter 11 filing.  The
petitions were signed by Biladley D. Bellville, president.

The Company's subsidiary, Best Buy Autos of Bainbridge Inc., is
not a party to the bankruptcy filing and intends to operate its
business in the ordinary course.

On Jan. 10, 2012, the Court appointed two separate Official
Unsecured Creditors' Committees in The Money Tree Inc. case and
The Money Tree of Georgia Inc. case.  On Jan. 13, 2012, the
Committees moved the Court to consolidate the two into one Omnibus
Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors in the Chapter 11 cases,
which motion was granted on Feb. 28, 2012.  Greenberg Traurig LLP
represents the Committee.  The Committee tapped HGH Associates LLC
as its accountants and financial advisors.

On April 16, 2012, the Debtors filed a Plan of Reorganization and
Disclosure Statement.  Holders of General Unsecured Claims of The
Money Tree (TMT) (estimated total: $586,676) were to receive 95%
of their Allowed Claim.  Meanwhile, Holders of General Unsecured
Claims of The Money Tree of Georgia (TMG) (estimated total:
$680,000); General Unsecured Claims of The Money Tree of Louisiana
(TML) (estimated total: $358,000); General Unsecured Claims of The
Money Tree of Florida (TMF) (estimated total: $73,000); and
General Unsecured Claims of Small Loans (estimated total:
$229,000) will each receive 25% of their Allowed Claim.

The Plan proposes to create a Liquidating Trust, of which
$15,200,000 will be for the benefit of Holders of TMT Subordinated
Debt (estimated total: $71,331,673) and TMG Subordinated Debt
(estimated total: $22,398,010).  About 90% of the funds will flow
to Holders of TMT Subordinated Debt and the Debtors estimate the
total payment over 10 years will equal roughly 19% recovery for
this class.  The remaining 10% will flow to Holders of TMG
Subordinated Debt.  The Debtors estimate the total payment over 10
years will equal 6.8% recovery for this class.

The Equity Interests in the Debtors will be cancelled.

The Plan does not affect, and will not result in the consolidation
and liquidation of, entities wholly owned by the Debtors,
including, without limitation, Best Buy Autos of Bainbridge Inc.,
The Money Tree/Vanmart, Inc., Buyer's Choice Motor Company,
Buyer's Choice Finance Company, and Money to Lend, Inc.

The Debtors, however, failed to move forward with their Plan as
the Court stripped the Company's management of control and
appointed S. Gregory Hays as Chapter 11 Trustee.  Daniel D.
Sparks, Esq., Eric J. Breithaupt, Esq., and Bradley R. Hightower,
Esq., at Christian & Small LLP, represent the Trustee.

NATIVE WHOLESALE: Court OKs Posting of Add'l $2MM Cash Collateral
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Native Wholesale Supply Company was authorized by the Bankruptcy
Court to post an additional $2 million in collateral in the form
of the Letter of Credit to secure its indemnity obligations to
Capitol Indemnity Corporation under the Customs Bonds.  The Letter
of Credit was issued by M&T Bank and secured by the Debtor's
funds.

The Court also allowed the Debtor to increase the amount of the
Letter of Credit by a separate application, on seven days notice
to Capitol, Grand River, the United States, National Association
of Attorneys General and the United States Trustee.

Capitol is a surety which agreed to provide Customs Bonds on
behalf of the Debtor which created an obligation on the part of
Capitol to pay indebtedness incurred by the Debtor to U.S. Customs
and Border Protection in the event the Debtor failed to pay the
customs duties and excise taxes incurred in connection with the
Debtor's importation of cigarettes and other tobacco products.

The Debtor is obligated to indemnify and reimburse Capitol for all
payments made under the Customs Bonds issued by Capitol at the
request of the Debtor pursuant to the General Indemnity Agreement.

Capitol currently holds $9.3 million of collateral to secure the
Debtor' indemnity obligations.

                       About Native Wholesale

Native Wholesale Supply Company is engaged in the business of
importing cigarettes and other tobacco products from Canada and
selling them within the United States.  It purchases the products
from Grand River Enterprises Six Nations, Ltd., a Canadian
corporation and the Debtor's only secured creditor.  Native is an
entity organized under the Sac and Fox Nation and has its
principal place of business at 10955 Logan Road in Perrysburg, New
York.

Native filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. W.D.N.Y. Case No.
11-14009) on Nov. 21, 2011.  The Chapter 11 filing was triggered
to resolve an ongoing dispute with the United States government
regarding up to $43 million in assessments made by the government
against the Debtor pursuant to the Fair and Equitable Tobacco
Reform Act of 2004 and the Tobacco Transition Payment Program and
to restructure the terms of payment of any obligation determined
to be owing by the Debtor to the U.S. under the Disputed
Assessment.  The issues pertaining to the Disputed Assessment
resulted in two lawsuits, subsequently consolidated, now pending
in the Federal District Court.

Robert J. Feldman, Esq., and Janet G. Burhyte, Esq., at Gross,
Shuman, Brizdle & Gilfillan, P.C., in Buffalo, N.Y., represent the
Debtor as counsel.

The Company disclosed $30,022,315 in assets and $70,590,564 in
liabilities as of the Chapter 11 filing.

NATIVE WHOLESALE: Taps Cuddy & McCarthy to Assist in NM Action
--------------------------------------------------------------
Native Wholesale Supply Company seeks permission from the
Bankruptcy Court to employ Cuddy & McCarthy, LLP, as its special
counsel, under a general retainer, in connection with the New
Mexico Action to perform the legal services that have been
rendered and that will be necessary during its Chapter 11 case.

The Debtor was a defendant in an action in the First Judicial
District of Santa Fe County, New Mexico, Case No. D-0101-CV-2008-
02236 which was stayed and then administratively closed by the
court for failure to prosecute.  The Debtor's lead counsel in the
New Mexico Action is Cuddy & McCarthy.  A recent effort to
resurrect the New Mexico Action was initiated by the New Mexico
Attorney General's Office by filing a motion to reopen the New
Mexico Action; that motion was denied.  An appeal or the
commencement of a new action is likely, however, and the Debtor
will require the continued assistance of Cuddy & McCarthy.

Cuddy & McCarthy is and has been counsel to the Debtor on all
matters involving the New Mexico Action since its initiation in
2008.

To the best of the Debtor's knowledge, the partners and associates
of Cuddy & McCarthy do not have any connection with the Debtor,
its creditors, or any other party-in-interest, or its respective
attorneys.

NCR CORP: Moody's Assigns 'Ba1' CFR/PDR; Outlook Stable
-------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Ba2 rating to NCR
Corporation's new $500 million senior unsecured debt issuance, Ba1
corporate family and probability of default ratings and a SGL-2
Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating. The new notes will be used as
part of the company's strategy to reduce up to $800 million of its
underfunded domestic pension obligations by funding the plan and
offering a lump-sum buyout to eligible employees. The rating
outlook is stable.

Moody's Senior Vice President, Gerald Granovsky said, "Despite the
increase in funded debt, if the buy-out of pension obligation
offered to eligible employees is successful, NCR will eliminate a
significant part of its domestic pension obligation, will remove
future volatility in its earnings and adjusted leverage." From
Moody's credit metrics standpoint, NCR's adjusted Debt/EBITDA
leverage would not materially change after completion of this
plan, as the pension underfundings are included in senior debt as
per Moody's standard adjustments. NCR's move will also enable the
company to focus on its core business without the distraction of
the pension plan volatility.

Assignments:

Senior unsecured debt Ba2, (LGD-4, 65%)

Corporate Family Rating at Ba1

Probability of Default Rating at Ba1

Speculative Grade Liquidity SGL-2

Outlook: Stable

Ratings Rationale

NCR's Ba1 CFR recognizes stable recurring revenue stream from
long-term maintenance contracts that result from the strong global
market position across its core financial self-service and retail
store point of sale businesses, and good geographic and customer
diversification, Management has track record of maintaining a
conservative financial policy. Additionally, the rating is
supported by the company's expansion into higher growth, higher
margin hospitality product lines and its exit from the
underperforming entertainment business, which was consuming cash.
The rating is somewhat prospective in nature, as it incorporates
Moody's expectation for improving operating performance and margin
expansion from NCR's core businesses and the elimination of
pension underfunding risks. Finally, the rating takes into account
NCR's stable free cash flow generation, solid debt protection
measures and a good liquidity profile. The rating is tempered by
the company's high debt balances relative to its historic levels,
resulting from the closing of the Radiant acquisition in 2011 and
the debt taken on to reduce its domestic pension liability. In
addition, competitor innovation, challenging macroeconomic forces
and technology changes may impact the sales of the company's
products in the future.

NCR's SGL-2 liquidity rating reflects the company's good
liquidity, driven by expectation of modest free cash flow but
solid cash balance and a sizeable revolving credit. Moody's
expects NCR to generate positive free cash flow in the $50 million
to $70 million range over the next 12 months down from $192
million in free cash flow over the last twelve months. The lower
projected free cash flow generation is driven by Moody's
expectations of increased interest expense, ongoing international
pension contributions and rising capital expenditures. Still,
Moody's expects the company to operate with cash balances in the
$300 million to $400 million range. The company maintains an $850
million revolving credit facility as a source for external
liquidity, which Moody's expects to be undrawn over the next 12
months. The facility requires the maintenance of financial ratios
(including financial leverage equal to or less than 3.5x debt to
EBITDA (although per a recent amendment to the facility, the
leverage ratio can be increased to no more than 4.5x if the
company uses debt proceeds to fund its pension plans). Moody's
expects NCR to remain complaint with its financial covenants over
the next 12 months. Moody's notes that having good liquidity is
important, since NCR free cash flow can be volatile during periods
of large required capital expenditures to support its product
deployments.

The ratings for NCR's debt instruments comprise both the overall
probability of default to which Moody's assigned a PDR of Ba1 and
an average family loss given default assessment. The unrated
senior secured bank credit facility (consisting of an $850 million
revolver and $850 million in term loans) benefits from a
collateral package that includes upstream guarantees of domestic
subsidiaries, and a pledge of stock of domestic subsidiaries and
2/3 of certain international subsidiaries. As a result, NCR's new
senior unsecured notes are rated at Ba2, LGD4 65% reflecting their
junior position in the capital structure as the notes do not share
in the full collateral package with the senior secured debt
holders.

The stable outlook incorporates Moody's expectation of steady
EBITDA margin improvement and mid single digit top line growth,
with adjusted debt to EBITDA to approach 3.5 times by the end of
2013.

What Could Change the Rating - UP

As NCR's rating is prospective for expected operating improvements
and ongoing deleveraging, an upgrade is unlikely in the near term.
However, NCR's rating could face upward pressure if the company
continues to execute effectively on new product and technology
introductions as measured by market share gains in financial,
retail and hospitality business segments across business cycles.
Specifically, NCR's would need to demonstrate sustained adjusted
operating margin improvements in excess of 13% and consistently
higher levels of free cash flow with lower volatility. The rating
could also be considered for an upgrade if the company maintains
adjusted leverage below 2.5 times.

What Could Change the Rating - DOWN

As the Ba1 CFR is predicated on expected operating improvements
and deleveraging, ratings could be downgraded if NCR's operating
performance does not improve as anticipated, due to increased
business risk, loss of market share in key business segments, or a
change in NCR's competitive position as evidenced by adjusted
operating margins staying below 6% or persistent periods of
negative free cash flow erode liquidity. In addition, the rating
may be downgraded if NCR's adjusted leverage remains above 3.75
times through 2014.

The principal methodology used in rating NCR Corp was the Global
Technology Hardware Industry Methodology published in September
2010. Other methodologies used include Loss Given Default for
Speculative-Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada and
EMEA published in June 2009.

Headquartered in Duluth, GA, NCR Corporation, with roughly $5.8
billion in revenues for the twelve months ended June 30, 2012, has
leading market positions in automatic teller machine (ATM),
electronic cash register, hospitality and related supplies and
services.


NRG ENERGY: Moody's Assigns 'B1' Rating to New Sr. Unsec. Notes
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B1 rating to NRG Energy, Inc.
planned issuance of new senior unsecured notes due 2023.
Concurrent with the rating assignment, Moody's has affirmed NRG's
Corporate Family Rating and Probability of Default Rating at Ba3;
its senior secured rating at Baa3; its senior unsecured rating at
B1, and its Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating at SGL-2. The
rating outlook for NRG continues to be negative.

Ratings Rationale

The rating assignment and rating affirmations primarily reflects
NRG's diversified fleet of wholesale power generation assets and
the relatively strong historical credit metrics based upon margins
underpinned by hedges, contracts, and sales from its retail
business. Recent operating results have however been negatively
impacted by weak power prices, reduced volumes and the continued
decline in the price of natural gas. For example, Moody's
calculates that cash flow (CFO pre-WC) to debt declined to 10.4%
for the twelve months ending 06/30/2012 as compared to the 2009-
2011 three year average of 16.4%. Cash flow coverage of interest
was 2.5x for LTM 06/30/2012, substantially lower than the three
year average of 3.3x. Moody's recognizes that some of the
deterioration in financial performance can be attributed to the
incurrence of approximately $2.7 billion of debt to finance the
construction of solar generation plants and a natural gas fired
plant being built in the Western US. Moody's further acknowledges
that all of these projects have long-term power purchase
agreements in place with investment grade counterparties which
Moody's views favorably from a credit perspective since they will
provide a high degree of cash flow certainty over the next several
years. Moody's consolidates all debt obligations when calculating
NRG's credit metrics. Importantly, Moody's calculates that these
key credit metrics show deterioration to levels consistent with a
weak "Ba" unregulated power company even if one excludes the $2.7
billion of project level debt, as cash flow to debt approximates
13% for both 2011 and the 12 months ending 06/30/2012.

The rating affirmation further considers the company's plans to
merge with financially weaker GenOn Energy, Inc (GEN: B2 Corporate
Family Rating; positive outlook) in a stock for stock transaction.
The rating affirmation acknowledges that the merger plan includes
at least $1 billion of debt reduction from the combined balance
sheet efficiencies and approximately $300 million per annum in
cost savings, including $100 million reduction in interest cost,
$175 million in corporate expense savings and $25 million in
operational synergies. If accomplished, these savings will improve
consolidated earnings and cash flow. The rating affirmation also
considers the benefits of increased size and diversification along
with the company's ability to grow its retail business in a lower
risk fashion given the generating assets that NRG will acquire in
key target markets, including the mid-Atlantic region.

NRG's speculative grade liquidity rating of SGL-2 reflects Moody's
expectation that the company will maintain a good liquidity
profile over the next 4-quarter period as a result of internal
cash flow generation combined with continued access to credit
availability, sufficient headroom under the company's covenants
and the ability to raise cash from asset sales, if necessary.
Total liquidity at 6/30/2012, was approximately $2.4 billion,
including credit facility availability of approximately $1.049
billion and unrestricted cash on hand of around $1.149 billion.
NRG's liquidity is aided by the existence of standalone financing
arrangements to fund the capital investments for the construction
of solar generation power plants and the retrofitting of some
natural gas-fired plants. Moody's anticipates that the decline in
energy margins will reduce the headroom under the company's
financial covenants but Moody's anticipates the company will
remain in compliance on a ongoing basis. Moody's also believes
that NRG owns assets that could be monetized for additional
liquidity. For example, NRG recently completed the sale of its 41%
interest in Schkopau for approximately $174 million.

Proceeds from this financing along with cash are expected to
refinance the company's $1.09 billion 7.375% senior notes due
2017. With the completion of the financing, the indenture
governing the 2017 senior notes, which had the most restrictive
language concerning a restricted payments test, will be
eliminated.

NRG's negative rating outlook reflects the margin erosion that is
occurring in both NRG's wholesale and retail operations, which is
contributing to financial performance more in line with a strong
"B" rated unregulated power issuer when considering all recourse
and non-recourse debt. The negative rating outlook further
considers the company's very large capital spending program
anticipated over the next few years, particularly when compared to
NRG's current market capitalization. While the GEN merger enables
NRG to acquire substantial generating capacity in an important
platform in PJM at an attractive price, the negative outlook
recognizes the weaker condition of its merger partner that
includes the addition of $5 billion of incremental debt (assuming
that $1 billion of debt is prepaid). Since many of the merger
details will take some time to finalize, Moody's is maintaining
its negative outlook on NRG until more definitive information is
available, which Moody's expects to occur at or around the time
that a shareholder vote is solicited. At that time, Moody's will
decide whether further negative rating action, which could include
a review for possible downgrade or a ratings downgrade of some or
all of NRG's rated debt, is warranted.

In light of NRG's negative rating outlook, the substantial capital
investment program, the continued weak market for unregulated
power in most regions, and a pending merger with financially
weaker GEN, limited prospects exist for NRG's ratings to be
upgraded in the near-term. However, to the extent that management
is able to complete the construction of its numerous projects on a
timely basis, to demonstrate the ability to integrate GEN while
achieving the projected cost savings, to stabilize or modestly
improve unregulated power margins, to reduce future capital
spending to a more manageable level, and to incrementally retire
debt, the rating outlook could stabilize.

NRG's ratings could be downgraded should material problems surface
with the company's growth strategies, if weaker than expected
market conditions persist across NRG's generation fleet, if the
cost savings and synergies of the proposed merger and margin
enhancement are not expected to be realized or are expected fall
short of credit metrics consistent with a low "Ba" CFR or if the
company materially alters its capital allocation program in a way
detrimental to creditors.

NOBLE IRON: $219,000 Default Judgment on Unit Expired
-----------------------------------------------------
Noble Iron Inc. disclosed that it has been advised that the
execution and appeal periods for a default judgment in the
original amount of $219,259 rendered against a wholly owned U.S.

OAKDALE PUBLIC: Moody's Cuts Rating on 2002 Revenue Bonds to 'B1'
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded to B1 from Baa1 the
underlying rating on the Oakdale Public Financing Authority's 2002
Revenue Bonds, Series A, which are secured by the City of
Oakdale's pledge of net revenues from its sewer enterprise. The
rating remains under review for possible downgrade.

Summary Rating Rationale

The rating action reflects the sewer enterprise's August 31, 2012
debt service payment default on an unrated state revolving fund
loan to the city that is secured on a parity basis with the
Oakdale Public Financing Authority's 2002 Revenue Bonds, which are
rated by Moody's. The rating is on review for further downgrade at
this time while Moody's evaluates the sewer enterprise's prospects
for recovery given the state loan default. The default was driven
primarily by the city's failure to anticipate the additional debt
service due on the recently executed state loan agreement. Failure
to anticipate and budget for the additional debt service resulted
in a shortfall that should have been anticipated and highlights
the city's lack of financial controls and weak financial and debt
management.

Moody's review will focus on prospects for recovery, including
measures to remedy the missed loan payment, ability to make full
and timely payment on rated bonds and the state loan in the
future, and credibility of plans to meet the rate covenant and
other legal terms and conditions of the trust indenture and state
loan agreement. Additional rating considerations include a limited
unrestricted reserve position, lagging regional economy,
uncertainty of future financial performance due to lack of
projections from the city, and possible customer resistance to
another substantial rate increase which may be needed to service
future debt and bolster operations given the low maximum annual
debt service coverage estimated at 0.6x.

STRENGTHS

* Immediate intent to implement new rate increases and
   restructure state loans in order to return sewer system to
   solvency

* Recent rate increases which provided ample revenue debt
   coverage in 2010 and 2011

* Mostly residential base with low customer concentration

CHALLENGES

  * Execution risks related to restructuring state loans to the
    extent of being able to fully pay debt service in 2013

  * Issuer's expectation that rate covenant on the rated debt may
    not be reached in 2012

  * Weak financial position and narrow reserve levels

  * Customers' below average socioeconomic profile, which could
    affect their ability to absorb future rate increases

Outlook

The B1 rating has been placed under review for a possible
downgrade based upon the uncertain recovery rate that will result
from restructuring the State Loan, and the possibility that near-
term rate increases will be insufficient to return the sewer
enterprise to a healthy financial performance. An obligation rated
B1 is considered speculative and the rating implies an expected
recovery rate of approximately 99% to 100%. Likely recovery rates
below 99% would result in further downward pressure on the rating.

WHAT COULD MAKE THE RATING GO UP:

* Ability of system to implement rate increases and restructure
   State Loans in order to reach rate covenant in 2013

* Significant rebound in usage and revenues

* Significantly bolstered reserve position

WHAT COULD MAKE THE RATING GO DOWN

* Inability of system to implement rate increases sufficient to
   pay total debt service

* Any further erosion of already limited liquidity

* Inability to produce structurally balanced operations

* Inability to negotiate State Loan obligations at less than a
   99% recovery rate

Principal Methodology

The principal methodology used in this rating was Analytical
Framework For Water And Sewer System Ratings published in August
1999.

PEREGRINE FINANCIAL: CFTC Wants Customer Distribution Slowed Down
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission wants
the trustee for liquidating commodity broker Peregrine Financial
Group Inc. to slow down the first distribution to creditors by two
or three weeks.

According to the report, bankruptcy trustee Ira Bodenstein
arranged a hearing today, Sept. 12, in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in
Chicago for approval to make a first distribution of $123 million
to futures customers from the $181 million in customer property in
his possession.  Customer property is that part of Peregrine's
assets that may be distributed only to customers.  In court on
Sept. 10, the trustee's lawyer said the shortfall in customer
funds is about $190 million.  The CFTC, wearing its hat as
Peregrine's regulator, said in a court filing on Sept. 9 that the
trustee hasn't completed "validity tests" to "ensure that the data
underlying the distribution are reliable."

The report relates that the CFTC doesn't believe that performing
necessary tests will "significantly delay" the distribution.  The
commission estimates that there could be a hearing on Sept. 27 or
soon thereafter to approve the initial distributions.  The CFTC
said that a "preliminary investigation" had discovered "over $45
million in fictitious bookkeeping entries," making Peregrine's
books and records an unreliable sole source on which to base
distributions.  Overruling objections from customers, the
bankruptcy judge gave the trustee permission on Sept. 10 to raise
the salary of the inside general counsel by $20,000 to about
$400,000 annually.

                    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
District of Illinois (Chicago).

Peregrine's CEO Russell R. Wasendorf Sr. unsuccessfully attempted
suicide outside a firm office in Cedar Falls, Iowa, on July 9.

The bankruptcy petition was signed in his place by Russell R.
Wasendorf Jr., the firm's chief operating officer. The resolution
stated that Wasendorf Jr. was given a power of attorney on July 3
to exercise if Wasendorf Sr. became incapacitated.

Peregrine Financial is the regulated unit of the brokerage
PFGBest.

At a quickly-convened hearing on July 13, the bankruptcy judge
authorized the Chapter 7 trustee to operate Peregrine's business
on a "limited basis" through Sept. 13.

The trustee filed formal lists in bankruptcy court last week
showing assets of $270 million and liabilities totaling $525.3
million, mostly owing to customers.  The remainder of the debt is
a few million each in secured claims and unsecured claims entitled
to priority in payment from assets that don't belong to customers.


PLAINS EXPLORATION: Moody's Reviews 'Ba3' CFR for Downgrade
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service placed under review for downgrade Plains
Exploration & Production Company's (PXP) Ba3 Corporate Family
Rating (CFR) and B1 senior unsecured notes rating. This rating
action was prompted by PXP's announcement that it would acquire
certain deepwater Gulf of Mexico (GOM) infrastructure and
producing assets for $6.1 billion in an all-debt transaction.

The following summarizes the ratings under review:

  LT Corporate Family Ratings (domestic currency) rating of Ba3
  on review for downgrade

  Senior Unsecured (domestic currency) rating of B1 on review for
  downgrade

  Probability of Default rating of Ba3 on review for downgrade

  BACKED Senior Unsec. Shelf (domestic currency) rating of (P)B1
  on review for downgrade

  BACKED Subordinate Shelf (domestic currency) rating of (P)B3on
  review for downgrade

Ratings Rationale

The review for downgrade reflects the all debt funded nature of
the transaction, with leverage rising substantially above other
Ba3-rated peers, the execution risk associated with PXP's
deleveraging plans, including the timing of and proceeds from
asset sales, and the higher risk profile of GOM development. To
fund the acquisition PXP intends to raise up to $7.0 billion of
debt financing, which will dramatically leverage its balance sheet
with as much as $9.7 billion total debt at year-end 2012. On a pro
forma run rate basis, debt on production will exceed a very high
$60,000 per average daily Boe at closing.

Strategically, the acquisition is transformational for PXP who has
executed a series of other large recent transactions, previously
re-shaping the company, including its 2010 exit from the shallow
water GOM, and acquisitions in the Haynesville (2008) and Eagle
Ford (2010) Shales. These transactions supplemented the company's
existing long-lived California assets and deepwater GOM Lucius and
Phobos developments.

The review will focus on the obvious leveraging nature of the
transaction and the ability of and likelihood that PXP will
deliver meaningful debt reduction through asset sales and free
cash flow. Moody's will evaluate the timing of debt reduction as
the company integrates this very large acquisition into its
existing operations. With several of the acquired fields producing
at low levels of capacity, PXP will be required to invest
significant incremental development capital into the acquired
fields and producing platforms to achieve expected production
gains. Moody's will also assess the operational and execution risk
of achieving these production gains in its review. Moody's expects
to conclude the review by year end, with the likely outcome being
a one notch downgrade.

PXP has agreed to acquire interests in five deepwater GOM
oilfields from subsidiaries of BP p.l.c. (BP) together with Shell
Offshore Inc.'s (Shell) 50% interest in one of the five for an
aggregate $6.1 billion. The acquired assets comprise

BP's interests in the Holstein, Horn Mountain, Marlin, Ram Powell
and Diana-Hoover fields, including their respective platform and
producing infrastructure. The fields are producing 67,000 Boe per
day (87% crude oil). With the acquisition, PXP's liquids
production will increase to 89% of total expected volumes to be
produced in 2013. The transaction is effective as of October 1,
2012, with PXP expecting to close the acquisition by year-end
2012.

The principal methodology used in rating Plains Exploration &
Production was the Global Independent Exploration and Production
Industry Methodology published in December 2011.


PLAINS EXPLORATION: S&P Puts 'BB' Corp. Credit Rating on Watch Neg
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its ratings on Plains
Exploration & Production Co. on CreditWatch with negative
implications.

"The rating action follows the announcement that Plains has agreed
to acquire interests in the Marlin, Dorado, King, Horn Mountain,
Holstein, Diana-Hoover, and Ram Powell fields from BP PLC and an
interest in the Holstein field from Shell Offshore Inc. Total
consideration for the two transactions is approximately $6.1
billion. Plains plans to fund the acquisition with up to $7
billion in debt," S&P said.

"We will resolve the CreditWatch after we conduct a full
assessment of the business and financial risk profiles of the
company, which will occur before the transaction is scheduled to
close. In addition, we will resolve the CreditWatch on the issue
level rating after we review additional information related to the
assets and capital structure in the context of a recovery
analysis," S&P said.

RITZ CAMERA: C&A Marketing Acquires Assets at Bankruptcy Auction
----------------------------------------------------------------
C&A Marketing Inc. has acquired portions of Ritz Camera and Image
LLC at bankruptcy auction.  Ritz Camera and Image's assets went up
for auction on Sept. 6.  Assets of Ritz Camera acquired by C&A

resurgence of one iconic American imaging brand.

"Ritz Camera has been a respected name in the camera industry for
almost a century," commented Harry Klein, co-owner and CFO of C&A
Marketing.  "In today's marketplace, it is essential for retailers
to strike the right balance with their brick and mortar and online
retail presence.  This is particularly true in the imaging
channel, as consultative sales and interaction are essential to
the customer experience.  The Ritz brand has long been synonymous
with the type of service and customer-centric approach that is too
often missing from the retail landscape.  We plan to uphold that
proud tradition, while updating the retail mix to reflect current
market dynamics."

C&A plans to keep approximately five to seven of the camera
retailer's flagship stores open across the country along with the
RitzPix business.  This is a major online Imaging business that
can do anything from standard prints, photo restoration, large
size printing, medium format film processing, custom book printing
and more with a full size Lab in Hapeville, GA.  Along with the
Ritz Camera name, C&A will also maintain additional retailers
Camera World, Wolf Camera, Photo Alley, Kits Cameras and The
Camera Shop, all of which have been acquired by Ritz in recent
years.  The C&A acquisition will be a majority of the Ritz Camera
business.

Ritz Camera and Image was founded by Benjamin Ritz in 1918.  The
retailer offers a variety of cameras, accessories and camera
related services from the top brands in the industry.

ROBERTS LAND: Farm Credit Still Objects to Plan
-----------------------------------------------
Farm Credit of Florida, ACA, at the end of last month
unsurprisingly filed an objection to confirmation of Roberts
Land & Timber Investment Corp.'s Chapter 11 plan of
Reorganization.

Farm Credit, an agricultural credit association owed $11.9 million
for notes issued by the Debtor prepetition, says the Plan cannot
be confirmed.  The association says that if the Debtor opts for
Plan treatment I, the association would receive less than all of
the property securing its claims.  If the Debtor opts for
treatment II, the association will neither retain all of the liens
securing its claims nor receive all of the property securing the
claims.

Farm Credit has pending motion for relief from stay, or,
alternatively, motion to dismiss the cases by Farm Credit of
Florida, ACA.

Originally filed Sept. 13, 2011, and amended Feb. 28, 2012, the
Plan provides that at the sole and exclusive option of the
Debtors, which will be exercised prior to the conclusion of the
confirmation hearing, the Debtors will inform the Court of their
determination to invoke and implement either Plan Treatment:

  (i) Treatment I provides that the Debtors will transfer to the
      Association Roberts' entire fee simple interest in the
      Woodstock Site in full satisfaction of the association's
      claims.

(ii) Treatment II provides that Roberts will transfer to the
      association Roberts' entire fee simple interest in the
      Woodstock Site, the association will retain its first lien
      on the Non-Doodstock-Union Site securing the remaining
      balance of the claim, and the association would receive
      deferred monthly cash payments of principal and interest
      over a 30-year-term.

The Aug. 3, 2011 edition of the TCR reported that Farm Credit
asked the Court to lift the automatic stay, or alternatively, to
dismiss the Debtors' cases, arguing that:

  i) the Debtors' cases have not been filed in good faith.  Rather
     than litigating a foreclosure action with Farm Credit in
     state court, the Debtors chose to file for Chapter 11 to
     invoke the automatic stay;

ii) the Debtors' Plan cannot be confirmed because the Plan
     provides Farm Credit with only a portion of its collateral
     in full satisfaction of its claims;

iii) in addition to the "occasional and infrequent" sale of the
     Real Property, the Debtors' only income is approximately
     $8,000 per year from a hunting lease.  The remainder of the
     Debtors' income consists of mortgage receivables pledged
     to Community State Bank and used to service its debt.

iv) the Debtors lack sufficient income to adequately protect Farm
     Credit's interest in the Real Property.

  v) the Debtors have no equity in the Real Property and the Real
     Property is not necessary for an effective reorganization.

A hearing on the Plan and the lift stay motion had been scheduled
for Sept. 6.  No new hearing dates have been set as of Sept. 10.

SAN MATEO CONVALESCENT: Hospital Closes Doors; Patients Moved
-------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Silverfarb at the Daily Journal reports that the San Mateo
Convalescent Hospital in San Mateo, California, has stopped doing
business and is in a rush to liquidate its assets to pay off its
last month of payroll, administrator Patricia Barnes said.

According to the report, the hospital's 34 residents, some with
dementia and Alzheimer's disease, have all found homes at other
assisted-living or skilled-nursing facilities, mostly in the
county.

The Daily Journal relates that a sale is pending on the building
with an asking price of $2.5 million but it is not known yet
whether the prospective buyer will continue to operate it as a
convalescent facility.

The report notes that Mr. Barnes has worked at the for-profit
hospital since it was opened by her mother Betty Frint in the
early 1960s.

At its peak, the hospital employed 55 people, Mr. Barnes told the

SHILO INN: Second Effort at Plan Has Sept. 20 Hearing
-----------------------------------------------------
Shilo Inn Seaside Oceanfront LLC will seek approval at a hearing
Sept. 20 of the disclosure statement explaining its reorganization
plan dated July 18, 2012.  The hearing was previously scheduled

bankruptcy judge in May; the Court ordered the Debtor and One West
Bank to engage in mediation by July 1.

This time, the Debtor is seeking approval of a Disclosure
Statement that says that OneWest Bank, the secured lender, will
receive payments for 30 years -- the first five years will be

amortized over 25 years with principal and interest payments.
The Debtor said that the July 18 Disclosure Statement will be
further amended to provide that OneWest Bank's secured claim is
being paid on a 25-year amortization basis instead of 30 years.

                        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

Final Order authorizing the Debtors to obtain postpetition secured

the Joint Chapter 11 Plan.

The Debtors are presently soliciting consent to the proposed

SP NEWSPRINT: Takes Lenders' $145 Million Cash, Debt Offer
----------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that newsprint maker SP Newsprint Holdings LLC found no
buyer willing to compete with secured lenders in purchasing the
business.  Consequently, the bankruptcy judge in Delaware approved
a sale on Sept. 7 with a sticker price of $145 million.

According to the report, faced with running out of cash financing
the bankruptcy reorganization begun in November, SP Newsprint put
the business up for auction in August, with existing lenders
serving as the so-called stalking horse.  There were no competing
bids submitted, so the auction was cancelled.  The purchase price
is composed of some of the secured debt plus enough cash to pay
off financing for the Chapter 11 case.

The report relates that in addition, the lenders will pay up to
about $30 million in expenses run up during the bankruptcy.  When
the bankruptcy reorganization began, SP said the lenders were
willing to serve as the stalking horse.  Before bankruptcy, SP
owed $41 million on a revolving credit and $213 million on a term
loan with General Electric Capital Corp. as a lender and agent.

SP NEWSPRINT: DIP Loan Increased to $67 Million
-----------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware has
authorized SP Newsprint Holdings LLC, et al., to enter into the
August DIP Agreement Amendment in contemplation of the closing of
the sale of substantially all of the assets of the Debtors to SPN
AcquisitionCo, LLC, or other purchasers providing higher or better
offers.

The August DIP Credit Agreement Amendment increases the commitment
under the DIP Agreement to $67 million to provide sufficient
liquidity to close on the Sale and to cover the costs of the
Debtors' operations.

On Jan. 25, 2012, the Court entered the Final Order authorizing
the Debtors to obtain post petition secured financing of up to
$20 million, with the ability to increase the amount to
$25 million, without the need for further Court approval and to
use cash collateral.  The increase in liquidity under the DIP
Agreement to $25 million was approved on our about April 27, 2012.

On Dec. 22, 2011, the Debtors closed on the DIP Facility, and
filed with the Bankruptcy Court the execution version of the DIP
Credit Agreement.

Under the 8th Amendment to the DIP Credit Agreement, the Maximum
Incremental Commitment Amount is increased to $67,000,000 less the
aggregate principal amount of the Loans outstanding together with
any accrued and unpaid interest thereon immediately prior to the
Closing Date, as defined in the Asset Purchase Agreement.

SP NEWSPRINT: Wants Plan Filing Period Extended to Oct. 10
----------------------------------------------------------
SP Newsprint Holdings LLC, et al., ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the District of Delaware to further extend their exclusive
periods to file and solicit acceptances of a Chapter 11 plan by 30
days (from Sept. 10, 2012, and Nov. 9, 2012, respectively, through
and including Oct. 10, 2012, and Dec. 10, 2012, respectively).

If approved, this will be the third extension of the Debtors'
exclusive periods.

Debtors say their cases are and large and complex enough to
warrant an extension of the Exclusive Periods.  Further, the
Debtors state that their cases have been pending for less than
nine months, and that they have accomplished a great deal in this
time period, including obtaining entry of the order approving the
sale of substantially all of the Debtors' assets to an entity
owned by the Debtors' pre-petition lenders, which provides for the
eventual conversion of the Chapter 11 cases to cases under Chapter
7 of the Bankruptcy Code.

Additionally, given that the Sale has not closed, the Debtors
submit that extension of the exclusive periods is necessary and
warranted for them to retain optionality in the event it becomes
appropriate to explore alternative restructuring strategies,
including a potential plan of reorganization.

STATION CASINOS: Moody's Affirms 'B3' CFR/PDR; Outlook Positive
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed Station Casinos LLC's B3
Corporate Family and Probability of Default ratings and changed
the rating outlook to positive from stable. Moody's also assigned
a B2 rating to NP Opco, LLC's, proposed $200 million, five year,
revolving credit facility and $575 million, seven year term loan
facility. Opco is a wholly owned subsidiary of Station Casinos
LLC.

Proceeds from the proposed facilities will be used to refinance
Opco's existing debt as well as the existing debt of Station GVR
Acquisition LLC (B3, stable). In addition to Opco's existing pool
of collateral, the new Opco bank facilities will now include the
assets of Station GVR Acquisition LLC as the proposed refinancing
is designed to fold these assets into the existing Opco financing
structure. If the transaction closes, Moody's will withdraw all of
the existing ratings of Station GVR Acquisition LLC.

The outlook revision to positive reflects Moody's expectation that
Station's operating margins -- already up about 300 basis points
on a year-over-year basis through June 30, 2012 -- will increase
further, and that the company will apply a substantial portion of
its free cash flow towards further debt reduction. Station has
reduced its consolidated debt by about $270 million (approximately
12% of the company's total consolidated debt) since emerging from
bankruptcy in June 2011. Pro-forma for the approximate $150
million pay down from collection of a development receivable and
the proposed financing, consolidated debt-to-EBITDA is about 7.3
times. This compares favorably to Station's consolidated debt-to-
EBITDA of 9.3 times at December 31, 2011 and 7.6 times at June 30,
2012.

Station's ratings could be raised if the company reduces its
consolidated debt-to-EBITDA to 6.0 times and maintains its good
liquidity profile. Same store earnings growth along with
additional management fee income from Graton could enable Station
to meet this target by year-end 2014. Station's outlook could be
revised back to stable if monthly gaming revenues in the Las Vegas
locals market begin to trend down, if local economic conditions
show signs of renewed stress, if consolidated debt to EBITDA
increases to 8.0 times, and/or liquidity deteriorates for any
reason.

Ratings Rationale

Station's B3 rating reflects high leverage, heavy revenue and
earnings concentration in the Las Vegas Locals market, and Moody's
expectation of slow recovery prospects for that market. Positive
rating consideration is given to Station's relaxed debt maturity
profile -- there are no material long-term debt maturities until
2016 -- limited capital expenditure plans, and good interest
coverage. Moody's expects that Station's EBITDA-to-cash interest ,
currently at about 3.0 times, will improve further through a
combination of modest earnings growth and debt reduction. These
factors differentiate the company from some of its rated peers
that face significant debt maturities, higher relative debt costs,
and significant cash outlays related to development projects.

Upon completion of this proposed refinancing, Station's capital
structure will be comprised of three (instead of four) separate
unrestricted subsidiary borrowing entities. Moody's ratings are
based upon a consolidated assessment of Station Casinos LLC,
because the company is managed by one board of directors and one
management team and will file consolidated financial statements
with the SEC.

Ratings assigned:

NP Opco LLC:

  $200 million secured revolving credit facility due 2017 at B2
  (LGD 3, 38%)

  $575 million secured term loan due 2019 at B2 (LGD 3, 38%)

Ratings affirmed and assessments updated:

Station Casinos LLC:

  Corporate Family Rating at B3

  Probability of Default Rating at B3

  $125 million senior secured revolver due 2016 at B2 (LGD 3, 38%
  from LGD 3, 34%)

  $200 million senior secured term loan B-1 due 2016 at B2 (LGD
  3, 38% from LGD 3, 34%)

  $750 million senior secured term loan B-2 due 2016 at B2 (LGD
  3, 38% from LGD 3, 34%)

  $625 million senior unsecured notes due 2018 at Caa2 (LGD 6,
  90% from LGD 5, 87%)

Rating to be withdrawn upon transaction close:

NP Opco, LLC ("Opco")

  $25 million senior secured revolver due 2016 at B2 (LGD 3, 34%)

  Approximately $410 million senior secured term loan due 2016 at
  B2 (LGD 3, 34%)

Station GVR Acquisition LLC

  CFR and Probability of Default rating at B3

  $215 million term loan due 2016 at B2 (LGD 3, 36%)

  $10 million first lien revolver due 2016 at B2 (LGD 3, 36%)

  $85 million second lien term loan due 2017 at Caa2 (LGD 5, 89%)

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

Station Casinos, LLC wholly owns and operates 14 gaming and
entertainment facilities all located in Las Vegas, Nevada. The
company also holds 50% joint venture interests in three casinos
and manages Gun Lake Casino in Michigan on behalf of the Match-E-
Be-Nash-She-Wish Band of Pottawatomi Indians pursuant to a seven
year contract that expires in 2018. Station Casinos LLC was formed
for the purpose of acquiring the assets of Station Casinos, Inc.
and its subsidiaries pursuant to the Bankruptcy Court order on
8/27/2010 confirming the plan of reorganization. Station also
acquired the assets of Green Valley Ranch Resort Spa & Casino. The
company emerged from bankruptcy on June 17, 2011.


STATION CASINOS: S&P Gives 'B+' Rating on $775M Sr. Secured Credit
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its preliminary 'B+'
issue-level rating to Station Casinos LLC (Station) subsidiaries
NP Opco LLC (Opco) and Station GVR Acquisition LLC's (GVR)
proposed $775 million senior secured credit facility. "We also
assigned this debt our preliminary recovery rating of '2',
indicating our expectation of substantial (70% to 90%) recovery
for lenders in the event of a payment default. Our preliminary
ratings are subject to our review of final documentation. The
proposed facility consists of a $200 million senior secured
revolving credit facility due 2017 and a $575 million senior
secured term loan due 2019. The company expects to use proceeds
from the issuance to repay its existing credit facilities at Opco
and GVR. As part of the proposed transaction Station plans to
merge GVR into Opco. However, until regulatory approvals are
granted, GVR and Opco will be co-borrowers under the proposed
credit agreement," S&P said.

"In addition, Station recently received approximately $194 million
as partial repayment of advances it made to the Federal Indians of
Graton Rancheria. Station estimates that after-tax proceeds of
approximately $154 million will be used to reduce the principal
amount outstanding under the company's Opco credit facility and
approximately $30 million will be used to repay the B-1 tranche of
Station's Propco credit facility," S&P said.

"The lower debt balances result in improved recovery prospects for
Opco's term loan and Station's Propco secured credit facilities,"
said S&P's credit analyst Michael Halchak. "Consequently, we are
revising our recovery rating on the existing Opco term loan to '1'
from '2', and raising our issue-level rating to 'BB-' (two notches
above the corporate credit rating) from 'B+'. Similarly, we are
revising our recovery rating on Station's Propco senior secured
debt to '2' from '3', and raising our issue-level rating to 'B+'
(once notch above the corporate credit rating) from 'B'."

"At the same time, we affirmed our 'B' corporate credit rating on
Station. The rating outlook is stable," S&P said.

"The corporate credit rating reflects our assessment of Station's
business risk profile as 'weak' and our assessment of the
company's financial risk profile as 'highly leveraged,' according
to our criteria. We incorporate the credit quality of the
consolidated Station Casinos LLC portfolio of properties and
assets into our rating despite the fact that different operating
subsidiaries secure different pieces of the capital structure.
Given our perception of the strategic relationships between these
entities and their common management and ownership, we expect
management will make decisions regarding operating and financial
strategies with a view toward the collective group of companies.
We believe that if a payment default were to occur on Station's
credit facilities or notes (the Propco debt) or at one of its
subsidiaries, including NP Opco LLC (Opco) or Station GVR
Acquisition LLC (GVR), management would consider alternatives
regarding the capital structure of the consolidated group, which
would likely include a comprehensive restructuring or a bankruptcy
filing," S&P said.

"The stable rating outlook reflects our expectation that credit
measures will remain at a level in line with the rating over the
intermediate term and that the company will use moderate levels of
free cash flow to repay debt over the next several years. We have
factored an expectation that EBITDA will grow in the high-single-
digit area in 2012 and more modestly in 2013. Under these
performance assumptions, we expect our measure of the company's
adjusted leverage to improve to the low-7x area and believe
interest coverage will remain greater than 2x, both supportive of
the rating," S&P said.

"A downgrade could occur if operating performance is meaningfully
weaker than our current expectations to the extent that EBITDA
coverage of interest weakens to below 1.5x, which would likely be
the result of destabilization in the Las Vegas locals gaming
market as a result of further economic disruption. Our
consideration of a higher rating is unlikely until leverage
improves closer toward 6x, which we do not anticipate in the near
term," S&P said.

THELEN LLP Trustee Says Ex-Partners Deserve Hardship Settlements
----------------------------------------------------------------
Eric Hornbeck at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that the trustee of
Thelen LLP asked a New York bankruptcy court Friday to greenlight
reduced settlements over pre-collapse compensation with two of its
former partners who met hardship requirements.

Bankruptcy Law360 relates that Thelen's Chapter 7 trustee Yann
Geron of Fox Rothschild LLP said in a motion filed with the court
that the two equity partners had met requirements for reduced
settlements over the trustee's compensation and capital
contribution claims.

                         About Thelen LLP

Thelen LLP, formerly known as Thelen Reid Brown Raysman & Steiner
-- http://thelen.com/-- is a bicoastal American law firm in
process of dissolution.  It was formed as a product between two
mergers between California and New York-based law firms, mostly
recently in 2006.  Its headcount peaked at roughly 600 attorneys
in 2006, and had 500 early in 2008, with offices in eight cities
in the United States, England and China.

In October 2008, Thelen's remaining partners voted to dissolve the
firm.  As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 22,
2009, Thelen LLP filed for Chapter 7 protection.  The filing was
expected due to the timing of a writ of attachment filed by one of
Thelen's landlords, entitling the landlord to $25 million of the
Company's assets.  The landlord won approval for that writ in June
2009, but Thelen could void the writ by filing for bankruptcy
within 90 days of that court ruling.  Thelen, according to AM Law
Daily, has repaid most of its debt to its lending banks.

VITRO SAB: Asks Appellate Court to Reverse and Enforce Plan
-----------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Vitro SAB filed the last set of papers designed to
persuade an appellate court that the bankruptcy judge was mistaken
in June when he refused to enforce the glassmaker's reorganization
plan approved by a court in Mexico.

According to the report, holders of 60% of Vitro's $1.2 billion in
defaulted bonds argued successfully to the bankruptcy judge in
Dallas that the Mexican plan wasn't worthy of enforcement in the
U.S. because it reduced guarantees on the bonds by subsidiaries
that weren't in bankruptcy anywhere.  The bondholders filed papers
last month with the U.S. Court in Appeals in New Orleans, arguing
that the court process in Mexico "was completely inimical to the
most basic elements of fairness."

The report relates that Vitro, in its reply brief filed Sept. 7,
noted how the bankruptcy court "rejected" the idea that the
Mexican process was fraught with "fraud, corruption, and
unfairness."  Vitro argued in its latest papers that the "plain
language" of the Bankruptcy Code requires enforcement of the
Mexican plan in the U.S.  The glassmaker said that the bondholders
"are really asking this court to protect them from the decision of
the Mexican court simply because they lost there."

The report notes that the appeal will be argued during the first
week of October to a panel of three judges on the Fifth Circuit in
New Orleans.  Even if Vitro wins the October appeal, the company
must also deal with a separate defeat suffered in late August at
the hands of a U.S. district judge in Dallas.  Last month, the
bondholders won when the district judge ruled that the bankruptcy
court erred in April 2011 by not putting 10 Vitro subsidiaries
into bankruptcy involuntarily.

The Bloomberg report discloses that defeated in courts in Mexico,
the bondholders won their victory in the Vitro parent's Chapter 15
case in Dallas.

The appeal in the Circuit Court is Vitro SAB de CV v. Ad Hoc Group
of Vitro Noteholders (In re Vitro SAB de CV), 12-10689, U.S. 5th
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 Texas (Dallas).  The bondholders'
previous appeal in the circuit court is Ad Hoc Group of Vitro
Noteholders v. Vitro SAB de CV (In re Vitro SAB de CV), 11-11239,
U.S. 5th 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 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.

WAGSTAFF MINNESOTA: Sale of Remaining KFC Stores in Process
-----------------------------------------------------------
Wagstaff Minnesota, Inc., et al., are in the process of selling
remaining stores as part of a stipulation with KFC Corporation.

The bankruptcy court last month signed off on a stipulation among
the Debtors, the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors,
entities related to General Electric Capital Corp., and units of
Perella Weinberg Partners, which allowed the Debtors to continue
using cash collateral until Aug. 25, 2012.  As of Sept. 10, the
parties have not submitted a stipulation extending the Debtors'
access to cash collateral.

The Aug. 9, 2012 document that outlined the terms of the Debtors'
access to cash from July 29 until Aug. 25 said that the parties
are negotiating a further stipulation for the continued use of
cash collateral for the time period after Aug. 25, and the budget
related thereto.

When sought for clarification whether a new stipulation has been
reached by the parties, counsel to the Debtor, Scott F. Gautier,
Esq., at Peitzman Weg LLP, clarified that the Debtor still has
access to cash.

"The Debtor has the authority to use cash in its ordinary course
of business," Mr. Gautier said in a message to the Troubled
Company Reporter.

Mr. Gautier also confirmed that the Debtor intends to file a
Chapter 11 plan before the exclusive period to propose a plan
expires Oct. 30.

The Debtor said in prior court filings that the company is
commencing a sale process of the restaurants and properties
pursuant to a settlement with KFC.

Mr. Gautier told the TCR, "The sale process is in process and it
is anticipated that there will be filings covering sales of all
remaining stores in the coming month."

WECHSLER & CO: Has 50% Plan; Disclosures Hearing Nov. 1
-------------------------------------------------------
Wechsler & Co., Inc., is scheduled to appear in bankruptcy court
on Nov. 1, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. to seek approval of the disclosure
statement explaining its proposed Chapter 11 liquidating plan.

The Debtor was targeting an October confirmation hearing for its
bankruptcy-exit plan.  The Debtor will commence solicitation of
votes on the Plan and schedule a plan confirmation hearing upon
approval of the disclosure statement.

In the disclosure statement filed late last month, Weschler said
it has remained cash flow positive throughout the course of the
Chapter 11 case.

Except for the general unsecured claims, all payments contemplated
under the Plan will be made from the plan distribution fund.  The
fund will be comprised of the net recovery from the liquidation of
the Debtor's illiquid investment portfolio, after payment of
reasonable costs and expenses.

According to the Disclosure Statement, New York State Department
of Taxation and Finance, holder of a secured/priority claim of
$12,031,184, is impaired and will receive 84.6% of the plan
distribution fund, in cash.  Holders of general unsecured claims
other than Norman Wechsler will receive, in cash, 50% of their
allowed claims on the effective date.  Mr. Wechsler has agreed to
subordinate his unsecured claim against the Debtor.  Mr.
Wechsler's equity interest is unimpaired, and he will retain his
equity interest in the Debtor on the effective date of the Plan.

The Debtor provided a status of its illiquid investment portfolio:

1. IntelliCorp:

    - Continued progress with major software company ? potential
      acquirer. Reseller and OEM agreements signed. First revenue
      (small) in December 2011 quarter, revenues lower than
      expected thus far, but strong interest in products, and
      possible acquisition. Discussions begun with another major
      software and service company.

    - FY 2012 small operating profit and net loss. Revenues $5.7
      million

    - New product releases this year with added functionality.
      Working on totally new product with partner that could be

WESTERN FINANCIAL PLANNING: Court Appoints Receiver
---------------------------------------------------
The Securities and Exchange Commission announced an asset freeze
against a San Diego-based firm and its owner accused of running a
real estate investment fraud that raised approximately $50 million
from hundreds of investors nationwide.

The SEC alleges that Western Financial Planning Corporation and
Louis V. Schooler sold units in partnerships that Western had
organized to buy vacant land in Nevada and hold for sale at a
profit at a later date.  Schooler and Western failed to tell
investors that they were paying an exorbitant mark-up on the land,
in some cases more than five times its fair market value.
Schooler and Western also failed to tell investors that the land
held by the partnerships was often encumbered by mortgages that
Western used to help finance the initial purchase of the land.

"Schooler conned hundreds of people into investing with Western by
leading them to believe that they were getting a good value for
plots of vacant land," said Michele Wein Layne, Director of the
SEC's Los Angeles Regional Office.  "What he didn't tell them was
that the land was worth only a small fraction of their investment
and that he was profiting at their expense."

The SEC's complaint filed in federal court in San Diego alleges
that Western and Schooler misled investors since 2007 by providing
them with comparative prices or "comps" of supposedly similar
plots of land that had sold for prices higher than those offered
by Western.  In reality, the real estate comps that Schooler and
Western provided were in no way comparable to the land sold by
Western.  The SEC also alleges that since the spring of 2011,
Schooler paid "hush money" to silence investors who discovered
they had been defrauded, allowing the scheme to continue.

The Honorable Larry A. Burns for the U.S. District Court for the
Southern District of California yesterday granted the SEC's
request for a temporary restraining order and asset freeze against
Schooler, Western, and all entities under Western's control, and
appointed Thomas C. Hebrank as a temporary receiver over Western
and the entities.  Judge Burns has scheduled a court hearing for
Sept. 17, 2012, on the SEC's motion for a preliminary injunction.

The SEC's investigation was conducted by Sara Kalin and Carol Shau
of the Los Angeles Regional Office. Molly White will lead the
SEC's litigation. Ron Warton, Andy Ganguly, Michelle Royston, and
Karol Pollack conducted the SEC examination that prompted the
investigation.

WJO INC: Court Okays Cash Collateral Use Until Sept. 30
-------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Jean K. Fitzsimon of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Eastern District of Pennsylvania has authorized Alfred T.
Giuliano, as Chapter 11 trustee of the bankruptcy estate of WJO,
Inc., to continue using cash collateral until Sept. 30, 2012.

operations.  Tristate Capital Bank asserts that it holds valid,
enforceable, and allowable claims against Debtor under a revolving
credit facility with unpaid principal of $3.1 million and under a

As adequate protection of the Lender's interest in the Pre-
Petition Collateral and the Cash Collateral, the Trustee grants
the Lender valid and automatically perfected first priority
replacement liens and security interests in and upon all of the
properties and assets of the Debtor.  To the extent that the
adequate protection is insufficient to adequately protect the
Lender from diminution of its interest in the pre-petition Cash
Collateral, the Lender is granted a superpriority administrative
expense claim and all of the other benefits and protections
allowable under Sections 503(b) and 507(b) of the U.S. Bankruptcy
Code.  The Lender will have a valid and automatically perfected
first priority replacement lien and security interest in the DIP

* Moody's Says Global Spec-Grade Default Rate Up 3% in August
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's trailing 12 month global speculative-grade default rate
came in at 3.0% in August, up from its 2.8% level in July, says
Moody's Investors Service in its monthly default report. A total
of 43 Moody's-rated corporate debt issuers have defaulted so far
this year, three of which defaulted in August.

Moody's "August Default Report" is now available, as are Moody's
other default research reports, in the Ratings Analytics section
of Moodys.com.

"The rate of default has remained remarkably steady," notes Albert
Metz, Managing Director of Moody's Credit Policy Research. "As
credit spreads continue to narrow slightly, our forecast remains
fairly benign."

In the US, the speculative-grade default rate ended August at
3.5%, up from July's level of 3.3%, while in Europe the rate eased
to 2.6% in August, down from 2.7% in July. The fall in the
European default rate was mainly driven by an increase in
speculative-grade issuers rather than fewer defaulters. Last year,
the European default rate was 1.1% in August.

Based on its forecasting model, Moody's expects the global
speculative-grade default rate will end the year at 3.1%. This is
relatively low compared to the historical average of 4.8% since
1983. Across industries, Moody's expects default rates to be
highest in Media: Advertising, Printing & Publishing Sector in the
US, and the Hotel, Gaming, & Leisure sector in Europe.

By dollar volume the global speculative-grade bond default rate
closed at 2.2% in August, up from2.0% in July. Last year, the rate
was much lower, at 0.8%.

In the US, the dollar-weighted speculative-grade bond default rose
to 1.9% in August, up from its 1.7% level in July. The comparable
rate was 0.9% a year ago.

In Europe, the dollar-weighted speculative-grade bond default rate
dropped to 3.1% in August from 3.3% in July. Last year, the rate
stood at 0.5.

Moody's distressed index came in at 17.5% in August, down from
18.3% in July. A year ago, the index was higher at 19.3%.

The trailing 12 month U.S. leveraged loan default rate ended at
2.4% in August, up from 2.3% in July. Last year, the loan default
rate was 1.4% at this time. There was only one Moody's-rated load
default in August.


* Minnesota Bank Failure Brings Year's Total to 41
--------------------------------------------------
The single-branch First Commercial Bank of Bloomington, Minnesota,
was taken over by regulators on Sept. 7. The deposits were
transferred by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. to Republic
Bank & Trust Co. of Louisville, Kentucky, which took over the
branch.  The bank had $206.8 million in deposits, and its failure
cost the FDIC's insurance fund an estimated $63.9 million.  It was
the 41st U.S. bank to fail this year.

                      2012 Failed Banks List

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

For this year, the failed banks are:

In 2011 there were 92 failed banks, compared with 157 in 2010, 140
in 2009 and just 25 for 2008.

The failures in 2010 were the most since 1992, when 179
institutions were taken over by regulators.

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

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

                    813 Banks in Problem List

The FDIC's Quarterly Banking Profile for Dec. 31, 2011, says that
The number of institutions on the FDIC's "Problem List" declined
from 844 to 813 during the quarter, and total assets of "problem"
institutions fell from $339 billion to $319.4 billion.  The number
of institutions in the "problem list" has decreased for the third
consecutive quarter.

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

The deposit insurance fund, which protects customer holdings up to
$250,000 per account in the event of a failure, saw its balance
increase in the fourth quarter to $9.2 billion (unaudited) from
$7.8 billion in the third quarter, the eighth consecutive
quarterly increase.

                Problem Institutions        Failed Institutions
                --------------------        -------------------
Year           Number  Assets (Mil)        Number Assets (Mil)
----           ------  ------------        ------ ------------
2011              813      $319,432          92        $34,923
2010              884      $390,017         157        $92,085
2009              702      $402,800         140       $169,700

2004               80       $28,250           4           $170

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


* Junk Default Rate Rises in August, Distress Rate Down
-------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that the default rate on junk bonds in the U.S. rose in
August to 3.5% from 3.3% the month before.  There were three
defaults in August among companies rated by Moody's Investors
Service.

According to the report, worldwide, the default rate at the end of
August was 3%, up from 2.8% during the month.  In a report
released on Sept. 10, Moody's predicted the global default rate on
junk debt will end the year at 3.1%, compared with the average of
4.8% calculated by Moody's since 1983.  So far this year, 43
companies defaulted on junk debt, Moody's said.  Statistics on
junk debt trading at so-called distressed levels indicates no
looming uptick in defaults.  At the end of August, Moody's
distress index was 17.5%, down from 18.3% in July.  Debt is
considered distressed if the yield is more than 10 percentage
points greater than comparable U.S. Treasury securities.  Looking
ahead, Moody's sees media, advertising, printing, and publishing
as being the U.S. industries with the highest default rates.


* Judiciary Continues Cost Savings, Closes Court Facilities
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Judicial Conference of the United States agreed to close six
non-resident federal court facilities -- the latest in a series of
cost-cutting measures implemented by the federal Judiciary's
national policy-making body.

Cost containment, a Judiciary-wide initiative dating back to 2004,
has resulted in a close examination of nearly every Judiciary
function and activity to determine if it is necessary, and if so,
how it can be done more efficiently and at less cost. This effort
is on-going.

Nevertheless, the "biggest threat to our fiscal health in the
short term is budget sequestration," Judge Julia Gibbons, Chair of
the Judicial Conference Budget Committee, told the Conference on
Sept. 11.

"We estimate sequestration would cut the Judiciary's budget by
more than $500 million below the 2012 funding level," Gibbons
said. "Quite simply, a reduction of this magnitude would cripple
the operations of the federal Judiciary and our constitutional
mission would be compromised due to these sudden, arbitrary budget
cuts."

(The Deficit Reduction Act requires automatic across the board
spending cuts, known as sequestration, in January 2013, unless
Congress adopts a deficit reduction plan.)

With regard to the court facilities to be closed, each contains a
courtroom, but has no full-time resident federal judge.  In
determining whether a facility should be closed, consideration was
given to the building's usage, location, condition, and operating
costs. Closure of the following facilities will save the Judiciary
a total of about $1 million a year in rent costs:

     -- Wilkesboro, North Carolina, (upon completion of the
        renovation of the courthouse in Statesville, North
        Carolina);
     -- Beaufort, South Carolina, (at the end of the lease term in
        2014);
     -- Meridian, Mississippi;
     -- Amarillo, Texas, (upon the cancellation of the lease for
        the bankruptcy court space);
     -- Pikeville, Kentucky, (releasing the bankruptcy courtroom
        and chamber in leased space); and
     -- Gadsden, Alabama.

In other action, the Conference:

     -- Asked each district court unit (district clerk's office,
probation office, pretrial services office, and bankruptcy court)
to work together to adopt a shared administrative services plan in
an effort to achieve cost savings while preserving effective court
operations and services.

     -- Eliminated funding to print and mail court of appeals slip
opinions -- court opinions issued prior to formal publication in
case reporters. This will achieve an annual savings of more than
$1 million in printing and mailing costs. Courts may instead
provide electronic copies of slip opinions.

     -- Approved the national implementation of a program to
provide access to court opinions through the Government Printing
Office's Federal Digital System (FDsys). Nearly 30 federal courts
currently participate in the pilot. The system provides free on-
line access to official publications from all three branches of
government and allows users to search, browse, and download
content.

The 26-member Judicial Conference is the policy-making body for
the federal court system. The Chief Justice serves as its
presiding officer. Its members are the chief judges of the 13
courts of appeals, a district judge from each of the 12 geographic
circuits, and the chief judge of the Court of International Trade.
The Conference meets twice a year to consider administrative and
policy issues affecting the court system, and to make
recommendations to Congress concerning legislation involving the
Judicial Branch.


* Sanctions Must be Imposed Before Appeal Is Decided
----------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that a bankruptcy court lacked jurisdiction to impose
sanctions on an attorney after the underlying lawsuit had been
appealed to the district court and affirmed, U.S. District Judge
Harry D. Leinenweber from Chicago ruled on Sept. 5.

According to the report, a lawsuit filed in bankruptcy court was
dismissed on summary judgment and went up on appeal where it was
affirmed.  The bankruptcy court had reopened the case to consider
a motion for sanctions that was not filed until after the
underlying dismissal was affirmed on appeal.

The report relates that Judge Leinenweber's opinion deals with the
question of the extent to which a trial court loses jurisdiction
when a case is on appeal.  Judge Leinenweber concluded that there
was no jurisdiction under the governing case from the U.S. Court
of Appeals in Chicago, Overnite Transportation Co. v. Chicago
Industries Tire Co.

The Bloomberg report discloses that to retain jurisdiction during
appeal, Judge Leinenweber said the bankruptcy judge should have
expressly reserved jurisdiction or heard the motion for sanctions
immediately after dismissal was granted, so sanctions and
dismissal could go up on appeal together.  Nothing of the sort
having occurred, the bankruptcy court lost jurisdiction when
dismissal was upheld on appeal.

The case is Kafantaris v. Signore, 12-2299, U.S. District Court,
Northern District Illinois (Chicago).



* Best Lawyers Names Singerman Bankruptcy "Lawyer of the Year"
--------------------------------------------------------------
Paul Steven Singerman, Co-Chair of the Florida business law firm
Berger Singerman, has been named 2013 Miami Litigation --
Bankruptcy "Lawyer of the Year" by Best Lawyers, the oldest and
most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession.

After more than a quarter of a century in publication, Best
Lawyers is designating "Lawyers of the Year" in high-profile legal
specialties in large legal communities.  Only a single lawyer in
each specialty in each community is honored as the "Lawyer of the
Year."

Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become
universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence.
Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey
in which more than 36,000 leading attorneys cast almost 4.4
million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their
practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to
pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a
singular honor.  Corporate Counsel Magazine has called Best
Lawyers "the most respected referral list of attorneys in
practice."

Mr. Singerman concentrates his practice in troubled loan workouts,
insolvency matters and commercial transactions.  He is active
throughout the United States in large and complex restructuring,
insolvency and bankruptcy cases.  His current representations
include representing the Liquidating Trustee for the Trust formed
under the Plan in the Taylor Bean & Whitaker Mortgage Corp.
bankruptcy case and Judge Herbert Stettin in his capacity as
Chapter 11 Trustee for the law firm Rothstein, Rosenfeldt & Adler.

Although he is best known for his representation of debtors in
complex restructuring cases, he is also experienced in
representing creditors' committees, lenders, large unsecured
creditors, asset purchasers in Sec. 363 sales and trustees.

Mr. Singerman is a past chair of the Business Law Section of The
Florida Bar, and now serves on the Executive Council of this
organization.  He is also is a Fellow of the American Bar
Association and is a member of the American Bankruptcy Institute,
American College of Bankruptcy, and the Spellman-Hoeveler American
Inn of Court.  Mr. Singerman is recognized as a "Star Individual"
in Chambers USA: America's Leading Lawyers for Business (2009-
2012) and is the only bankruptcy lawyer in the state of Florida in
four consecutive years to receive Chambers' highest ranking.

He received both his undergraduate degree in Classical Studies,
summa cum laude, and his law degree, cum laude, from the
University of Florida.

Berger Singerman is a Florida business law firm with more than 70
attorneys working out of offices in Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale,
Miami and Tallahassee.  Members of the firm have experience in all
areas of commercial law, including banking, creditors' rights,
business reorganization, bankruptcy, corporate & securities,
dispute resolution and litigation, white collar crime, real
estate, environmental and land use, health care, tax, estate
planning, and probate.


* Ronald Rubin Joins Hunton & Williams as Partner in Washington
---------------------------------------------------------------
Hunton & Williams LLP on Sept. 10 disclosed that Ronald L. Rubin,
an enforcement attorney at the Consumer Financial Protection
Bureau, has joined the firm as a partner in Washington.  He will
be part of the firm's 30-member bankruptcy, restructuring and
creditors? rights team.

"With the CFPB expected to bring a wave of enforcement actions on
behalf of consumers in the areas of residential mortgages, auto
loans, credit cards, payday and title lending, debt collection,
and student loans, it is going to be a significant advantage to
our clients to have Ron's agency insights and experience," said
Tyler P. Brown, head of the firm's bankruptcy, restructuring and
creditors' rights practice group.

As one of the earliest employees in the CFPB's Supervision, Fair
Lending and Enforcement Division, Mr. Rubin played an important
role in building the new agency's enforcement capabilities.  In
addition to creating the standard format for all of the Office of
Enforcement's policies and procedures, he drafted the Enforcement
Action Process, which governs how Enforcement collaborates with
other components of the Bureau prior to taking steps such as
opening investigations, issuing civil investigative demands, and
suing suspected law violators; and the NORA (Notice and
Opportunity to Respond and Advise) procedures, which provide firms
under investigation with an opportunity to present their positions
prior to a recommendation of enforcement proceedings against them.
Mr. Rubin has extensive knowledge of the Dodd-Frank Act and other
consumer financial laws overseen by the CFPB.

An increasingly stringent regulatory environment at both the
federal and state levels has led to an escalation of legal issues
related to consumer lending.  Heightened oversight of the issuance
of consumer credit by the Office of the Comptroller of the
Currency and the Federal Trade Commission has coincided with a
rise in class action litigation related to consumer financial
protection statutes.  Additionally, state attorneys general are
more actively enforcing regulations.

"Ron has credibility and experience that can be immediately
demonstrated to financial services clients.  His arrival builds on
the firm?s already solid foundation in the banking regulatory
arena; our wealth of experience litigating consumer protection
class actions and mortgage servicing-related matters; and our
practice before state attorneys general," said Jarrett L. Hale, a
partner in the practice.

Mr. Rubin began his career more than 20 years ago by gaining
extensive trial experience as a criminal prosecutor.  He then
spent seven years investigating and prosecuting securities law
violations as senior special counsel at the United States
Securities and Exchange Commission, and was a managing director in
the Legal and Compliance Department of Bear, Stearns & Co.
Immediately prior to joining the CFPB, Rubin served as counsel in
the regulatory litigation group at Tannenbaum Helpern Syracuse &
Hirschtritt LLP in New York.

                            *********

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 &
