AFA INVESTMENT: Cash Collateral Termination Date Tolled to Oct. 9
-----------------------------------------------------------------
AFA Investment Inc., and its debtor affiliates, and the agent for
the second lien lenders notified the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Delaware that they agreed to a further extension of
the termination date under the Interim Cash Collateral Order
through and including Oct. 9, 2013.

The Debtors are represented by Laura Davis Jones, Esq., Timothy P.
Cairns, Esq., and Peter J. Keane, Esq., at Pachulskj Stang Ziehl &
Jones LLP, in Wilmington, Delaware; Tobias S. Keller, Esq., at
Jones Day, in San Francisco, California; and Jeffrey B. Ellman,
Esq., and Brett J. Berlin, Esq., at JONES DAY, in Atlanta,
Georgia.

                         About AFA Foods

King of Prussia, Pennsylvania-based AFA Foods Inc. was one of the
largest processors of ground beef products in the United States.
AFA had seven facilities capable of producing 800 million pound of
ground beef annually.  Revenue in 2011 was $958 million.

Yucaipa Cos. acquired the business in 2008 and currently owns 92%
of the common stock and all of the preferred stock.

AFA Foods, AFA Investment Inc. and other affiliates filed for
Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case No. 12-11127) on
April 2, 2012, after recent changes in the market for its ground
beef products and the impact of negative media coverage related to
boneless lean beef trimmings (BLBT) affected sales.

Judge Mary Walrath presides over the case.  Lawyers at Jones Day
and Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP serve as the Debtors'
counsel.  FTI Consulting Inc. serves as financial advisors and
Imperial Capital LLC serves as marketing consultants.  Kurtzman
Carson Consultants LLC serves as noticing and claims agent.

As of Feb. 29, 2012, on a consolidated basis, the Debtors' books
and records reflected approximately $219 million in assets and
$197 million in liabilities.  AFA Foods, Inc., disclosed
$615,859,574 in assets and $544,499,689 in liabilities as of the
Petition Date.

Roberta A. DeAngelis, U.S. Trustee for Region 3, appointed seven
members to the official committee of unsecured creditors in the
Chapter 11 cases of AFA Investment Inc., AFA Foods and their
debtor-affiliates.  The Committee has obtained approval to hire
McDonald Hopkins LLC as lead counsel and Potter Anderson &
Corroon LLP serves as co-counsel.  The Committee also obtained
approval to retain J.H. Cohn LLP as its financial advisor, nunc
pro tunc to April 13, 2012.

AFA, in its Chapter 11 case, sold plants and paid off the first-
lien lenders and the loan financing the Chapter 11 effort.
Remaining assets are $14 million cash and the right to file
lawsuits.

General Electric Capital Corp. and Bank of America Corp. provided
about $60 million in DIP financing.  The loan was paid off in
July.

In October 2012, the Bankruptcy Court denied a settlement that
would have released Yucaipa Cos., the owner and junior lender to
AFA Foods, from claims and lawsuits the creditors might otherwise
bring, in exchange for cash to pay unsecured creditors' claims
under a liquidating Chapter 11 plan.  Under the deal, Yucaipa
would receive $11.2 million from the $14 million, with the
remainder earmarked for unsecured creditors.  Asset recoveries
above $14 million would be split with Yucaipa receiving 90% and
creditors 10%.  Proceeds from lawsuits would be divided roughly
50-50.


AGFEED USA: Files Chapter 11; Has $79MM Stalking Horse Offer
------------------------------------------------------------
AgFeed USA LLC and parent company, AgFeed Industries Inc., filed
for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. D. Del. Case No. 13-11761) on
July 15, 2013, with plans to sell its U.S. operations, listing up
to $500 million in assets and up to $100 million in debt.

AgFeed, based in Hendersonville, Tenn., is a producer of hogs and
supplier of hog feed to China.  The Debtors are represented by
Robert S. Brady, Esq., at Young, Conaway, Stargatt & Taylor.

Bloomberg News' Tiffany Kary reports AgFeed cited a dispute with
Hormel Foods Corp. that led to a default on its debt.  AgFeed had
a disagreement with Hormel, which led to arbitration and a default
under one of its loan agreements, according to the filing.

Hormel is AgFeed's main U.S. customer, purchasing weanling pigs
and hogs from the Debtor.

Yogita Patel, writing for The Wall Street Journal, reports that
AgFeed filed for bankruptcy after agreeing to wind down its supply
contract with Hormel.

According to the Bloomberg report, AgFeed's Chief Restructuring
Officer Keith Maib said in court papers that a sale of all or
substantially all of the assets of AgFeed USA is the best way to
reorganize, and the company already has an offer for $79 million.
The Company plans to hold an auction to test for higher offers in
bankruptcy.  AgFeed operates through units in China and the
British Virgin Islands and has 21 commercial farms and five feed
mills that produce more than a quarter-million hogs a year,
according to the Court filing.

WSJ reports AgFeed has lined up a $79 million leading bid for most
of its U.S. assets from Maschhoffs LLC, a Carlyle, Ill., hog
production network, according to papers filed with the Bankruptcy
Court.  The offer, which is subject to court approval, would be
tested at a court-supervised auction.

The WSJ report says AgFeed is looking for a buyer for its Chinese
units, which aren't included in the U.S. bankruptcy case.


ALAMEDA INVESTMENTS: Trust Retains Interest Under Operating Deal
----------------------------------------------------------------
A California bankruptcy court entered an order on the Motion by
Alameda Liquidating Trust for Order Determining that Membership
Interest in West Lakeside LLC was Uneffected by Plan.  In a June
25, 2013 Memorandum Decision, Judge Peter H. Carroll concluded
that (1) the Operating Agreement executed by Alameda, Phoenix, LLC
and AKT Investments, Inc. -- for the development of a 33-acre
tract of land in Sacramento County, California -- is not an
executory contract nor was it rejected as an executory contract
under the Plan and Confirmation Order; (2) the Alameda Liquidating
Trust succeeded to Alameda's entire interest in West Lakeside
under the Operating Agreement as the estate representative under
the Plan and Confirmation Order; and (3) the Alameda Liquidating
Trust enjoys the same Alameda Membership Interest in West Lakeside
which Alameda had prior to bankruptcy.

On January 9, 2009, Alameda Investments, LLC filed a voluntary
Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. C.D. Calif., Case No. 6:09-BK-10348-
PC).  Alameda's case was jointly administered with the bankruptcy
case of Woodside Group, LLC and its affiliated entities.  On
November 24, 2009, Woodside filed its Second Amended Joint Plan of
Reorganization of Woodside Group, LLC and Affiliated Debtors, as
Modified on November 24, 2009.  Woodside's Plan was confirmed by
order entered on November 24, 2009 and became effective at the
close of business on December 31, 2009.


ALLIED SYSTEMS: Court Approves Aug. 14 Auction for Assets
---------------------------------------------------------
Judge Christopher S. Sontchi of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Delaware approved the bidding procedures governing the
proposed sale of all or substantially all of Allied Systems
Holdings, Inc., et al.'s assets.

All qualified bids must be received prior to Aug. 8, 2013.  The
agents for the prepetition first lien lenders are automatically
deemed to be a qualified bidder with a credit bid.

In the event that two or more qualified bids are received, an
auction will be held on Aug. 14, 2013, at 10:00 a.m. (prevailing
Eastern Time) at the offices of Richard, Layton and Finger, P.A.,
located at 920 N. King Street, in Wilmington, Delaware.

A sale hearing will be held on Aug. 22, 2013, at 2:00 p.m.
(prevailing Eastern Time).  Objections to the approval of the sale
must be served so as to be received on or before Aug. 15.

                        About Allied Systems

BDCM Opportunity Fund II, LP, Spectrum Investment Partners LP, and
Black Diamond CLO 2005-1 Adviser L.L.C., filed involuntary
petitions for Allied Systems Holdings Inc. and Allied Systems Ltd.
(Bankr. D. Del. Case Nos. 12-11564 and 12-11565) on May 17, 2012.
The signatories of the involuntary petitions assert claims of at
least $52.8 million for loan defaults by the two companies.

Allied Systems, through its subsidiaries, provides logistics,
distribution, and transportation services for the automotive
industry in North America.

Allied Holdings Inc. previously filed for chapter 11 protection
(Bankr. N.D. Ga. Case Nos. 05-12515 through 05-12537) on July 31,
2005.  Jeffrey W. Kelley, Esq., at Troutman Sanders, LLP,
represented the Debtors in the 2005 case.  Allied won confirmation
of a reorganization plan and emerged from bankruptcy in May 2007
with $265 million in first-lien debt and $50 million in second-
lien debt.

The petitioning creditors said Allied has defaulted on payments of
$57.4 million on the first lien debt and $9.6 million on the
second.  They hold $47.9 million, or about 20% of the first-lien
debt, and about $5 million, or 17%, of the second-lien obligation.
They are represented by Adam G. Landis, Esq., and Kerri K.
Mumford, Esq., at Landis Rath & Cobb LLP; and Adam C. Harris,
Esq., and Robert J. Ward, Esq., at Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP.

Allied Systems Holdings Inc. formally put itself and 18
subsidiaries into bankruptcy reorganization June 10, 2012,
following the filing of the involuntary Chapter 11 petition.

The Company is being advised by the law firms of Troutman Sanders,
Gowling Lafleur Henderson, and Richards Layton & Finger.

The bankruptcy court process does not include captive insurance
company Haul Insurance Limited or any of the Company's Mexican or
Bermudan subsidiaries.  The Company also announced that it intends
to seek foreign recognition of its Chapter 11 cases in Canada.

An official committee of unsecured creditors has been appointed in
the case.  The Committee consists of Pension Benefit Guaranty
Corporation, Central States Pension Fund, Teamsters National
Automobile Transporters Industry Negotiating Committee, and
General Motors LLC.  The Committee is represented by Sidley Austin
LLP.

Yucaipa Cos. has 55 percent of the senior debt and took the
position it had the right to control actions the indenture trustee
would take on behalf of debt holders.  The state court ruled in
March 2013 that the loan documents didn't allow Yucaipa to vote.

In March, the bankruptcy court also gave the official creditors'
committee authority to sue Yucaipa. The suit includes claims that
the debt held by Yucaipa should be treated as equity or
subordinated so everyone else is paid before the Los Angeles-based
owner. The judge is allowing Black Diamond to participate in the
lawsuit against Yucaipa and Allied directors.


ALLIED SYSTEMS: Yucaipa Seeks Review of Replacement DIP Order
-------------------------------------------------------------
Yucaipa American Alliance Fund I, L.P. and Yucaipa American
Alliance (Parallel) Fund I, L.P., filed a motion asking the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware to reconsider its
order authorizing Allied Systems Holdings, Inc., and its debtor
affiliates to obtain a replacement DIP financing.

According to Yucaipa, which holds $134.8 million in principal
amount of first lien debt and $20 million in principal amount of
second lien debt, the Court should reconsider its order because
the Debtors did not present any evidence -- and could not present
that evidence -- demonstrating that they met their burden of
providing adequate protection to non-consenting holders of
Prepetition First Lien Debt and Prepetition Second Lien Debt.

Yucaipa's counsel, Michael R. Nestor, Esq., at Young Conaway
Stargatt & Taylor, LLP, in Wilmington, Delaware, argued that the
Debtors failed to prove that the Prepetition First Lien Lenders
and Prepetition Second Lien Lenders -- Yucaipa included -- would
be adequately protected against the diminution in the value of the
Prepetition Lenders' collateral in light of the senior priming
liens granted in that collateral by the Replacement DIP Order.

Accordingly, the Replacement DIP Order contravenes the protections
afforded to Prepetition First Lien Lenders and Prepetition Second
Lien Lenders under Section 364 of the Bankruptcy Code and should
reconsidered and then reversed and/or modified, as applicable,
Yucaipa asserted.

A proposed hearing on the motion is scheduled for July 19, 2013,
at 10:00 a.m. (ET).  Proposed objection deadline is July 15.

Robert A. Klyman, Esq., and Russell F. Sauer, Jr., Esq., at LATHAM
& WATKINS LLP, in Los Angeles, California, also represent Yucaipa.

AMERICAN EQUITY: S&P Assigns 'BB+' Rating to $400MM 8-Yr. Debt
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it assigned its 'BB+'
senior unsecured debt rating to American Equity Investment Life
Holding Co.'s (AEL) proposed $400 million, eight-year senior
unsecured debt issue due in 2021.

"The 'BB+' senior unsecured debt rating reflects our 'BB+' long-
term counterparty credit rating on AEL. Because AEL intends to use
the issue proceeds to retire its existing 2029 and 2015
convertible debt, AEL's credit profile is minimally affected with
pro-forma financial leverage of 38% and fixed-charge coverage of
more than 5x. We forecast the resulting increase in debt double
leverage to be approximately $75 million-$85 million as of year-
end 2013.  We will deduct this amount from subsidiary total
adjusted capital in our capital model.  We expect the debt double
leverage to fall to minimal levels or be eliminated within
approximately two years as absolute capitalization increases and
does not affect our outlook on the ratings," S&P said.

A status hearing and continued Disclosure Statement hearing in the
Chapter 11 case of American Amex, Inc., will be held on July 29,
2013, at 1:30 p.m.  The hearing will be conducted via the
telephone.

As reported in the TCR on April 19, 2013, American Amex, Inc., has
filed a Disclosure Statement in support of its Plan of
Reorganization filed Jan. 30, 2013.

According to the Disclosure Statement, payments and distributions
under the Plan will be funded by the sale of the Buffalo Mine.
The Debtor plans to submit this sale for approval by the
Bankruptcy Court to the highest bidder, upon terms set forth in
the Plan.

Under the Plan, the proposed treatment for the various claims
against and interests in the Debtor are:

    * With respect to allowed secured claims, the Debtor says if
the value of the collateral or setoffs securing the creditor's
claim is less than the amount of the creditor's allowed claim, the
deficiency will be classified as a general unsecured claim.
The secured prepetition claims are those of Sable Palm
Development, Robert Hills, and Ray Weilage.

    * As an insider, Mr. Weilage's secured claim is subordinate
to those of Sable Palm and Hills.

    * Priority Claims, of which there are two potential claimants
-- the IRS and the Oregon Department of Revenue 00 will be paid
within 4 years of confirmation in equal installments with
interest.

    * As for general unsecured claims, the Debtor notes that its
assets, less the secured claim thereon, and based on the offers
pending, will allow a 100% payment to the holders of unsecured
claims.

A copy of the Disclosure Statement is available at:

substantial doubt about American Oriental's ability to continue as
a going concern.  The independent auditors noted that the Company

ANTIOCH COMPANY: GA Keen Okayed to Sell Yellow Springs Property
---------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Minnesota authorized
The Antioch Company, LLC, et al., to employ GA Keen Realty
Advisors LLC as realtor.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on June 17, 2013, GA
Keen will represent and assist the Debtors in marketing, locating
a buyer for, and negotiating the sale of, real property located at
888 Dayton Street, Yellow Springs, Ohio.  The property is owned by
the Debtor, and was formerly operated as a manufacturing and
distribution facility.

Matthew Bordwin, co-president of GA Keen and managing director of
Great American Group, LLC, its managing member, tells the Court
that GA Keen Realty agree that upon completion of the sale of the
property, the firm will be paid 5.25% of the gross proceeds from
the sale of the property.  The Debtors will pay the actual
expenses of marketing the property.  In addition, GA Keen will be
reimbursed for all reasonable out of pocket costs and expenses in
connection with performing services.

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

BAJA BOATS: Pa. Court Affirms Ruling in Product Liability Suit
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Superior Court of Pennsylvania affirmed a lower court judgment
entered September 25, 2012, against Robert Hodges and Ann Hodges,
husband and wife, and Nicholas Hodges, in a products liability
dispute that began more than a decade ago arising from the Hodges'
alleged exposure to large concentrations of poisonous carbon
monoxide gas from a boat manufactured by Baja Boats, Inc.  The
Hodges took an appeal from the judgment.

Baja Boats filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in Ohio on Feb. 2,
1994.  In August 1995, Brunswick Corporation, a secured creditor,
filed a joint reorganization plan with Baja Boats, in which it
bought Baja Boats' assets, Florida property, and its nominee. They
incorporated in Delaware as Baja Marine Corporation, solely owned
by Brunswick.  Brunswick disclaimed any liability for boats built
or sold by Baja Boats.  On Sept. 5, 1995, the Ohio bankruptcy
court confirmed the reorganization plan.

On Oct. 11, 1995, the Hodges bought a 34-foot Baja Cruiser from
Ducky's Boats, Inc. in Middletown, Pennsylvania.  On July 4, 1997,
while anchored at Maule Lake in Miami, Florida, the Hodges were
exposed to large concentrations of poisonous carbon monoxide gas
from the boat.

The Hodges first sued in the Southern District of Florida against
Baja Boats and Ducky's Boats.  Ducky's was later dismissed from
the case.

The Hodges commenced litigation in Pennsylvania by filing a
complaint on July 2, 1999.  Extensive pleadings, including
dispositive motions, were filed by the parties, and on June 20,
2003, after the pleadings and discovery phases of the case were
completed, the trial court entered an Order granting Baja Marine's
Motion for Summary Judgment and Brunswick's Motion for Summary
Judgment and denying the Hodges' Motion for Partial Summary
Judgment.  On July 21, 2003, the Hodges filed a Motion for
Certification of Court's Order of June 20, 2003 for Interlocutory
Appeal.  On Dec. 1, 2003, the trial court denied Hodges' Motion.
No party activity in this case appears to have been undertaken for
approximately five years. The next activity occurred Jan. 9, 2009,
when the trial court sent out its Notice of Proposed Termination
of Court Case for inactivity.

The case is, ROBERT HODGES AND ANN HODGES, H/W, AND NICHOLAS
HODGES, Appellants, v. BAJA MARINE CORPORATION, AND BAJA BOATS,
INC., AND BRUNSWICK CORPORATION AND DUCKY'S BOATS, INC.,

BENDER SHIPBUILDING: $1.2MM B&D Claim Not Entitled to Priority
--------------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Margaret A. Mahoney sustained Bender Ship
Building & Repair Co., Inc.'s objection to the proof of claim
filed by B&D Contracting, Inc., for $1,190,268.50, asserting a
wage priority pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Sec. 507(a)(4).  In December
2010, B&D amended its claim to reduce the wage priority to
$495,019.77 and asserting $695,245.73 as a general unsecured
claim.  Judge Mahoney said B&D's entire $1,190,268.50 claim is a
general unsecured claim and not entitled to priority status.

BERNARD'S SALON: New Owners Take Over Following Bankruptcy
----------------------------------------------------------
The Bernard's beauty salon group has new owners.  All salons were
acquired, including the renowned Bernard's Salon and Spa in Cherry
Hill, Bernard's Marlton and the B2 Salons in Cherry Hill,
Washington Township and Philadelphia.  All the Salons will be run
by a talented partnership of highly experienced professionals in
Fashion, Marketing and Salon Management.

Improvements will be phased in, according to one of the new
owners, Joseph P. Serpente.  "For now, everything will remain the
same," Mr. Serpente said.  "There will be no interruption in
appointment schedules or which one of our Licensed Professionals
will be serving each client.  Most all our staffs remain the same.
But we will be making improvements using client input, and
returning to the standards and professional tradition of the late
Thomas Bernard.  Tom was committed to providing Quality Service
Experience to the Clients and we are equally committed to restore
that Quantity Experience."

Mr. Serpente bought the salons out of bankruptcy and immediately
announced his partner, Raymond Orsuto.  Both have local ties, and
both had worked with the renowned Thomas Bernard, the founder of
Bernard's Salon & Spa.  Mr. Serpente had been Bernard's
advertising and marketing counselor until Thomas Bernard's
untimely death in 1993. He continued for a time under the new
ownership, developed the Bernard's franchise but later resigned
the account over differences in business philosophy.  Mr. Serpente
has owned and operated an Advertising & Public Relations agency in
the Cherry Hill area since 1976.

Raymond Orsuto is a former partner of Thomas Bernard.  He later
owned and operated Maneline Salons, 800 West and currently the
Phoenix Spa and Salon.  His entire career has been committed to
excellence in the beauty industry.

Thomas Bernard was one of the Salon and Beauty Industry's elite
personalities and talents, twice winning the Top Stylist crown in
the International Hairstyling Competition held annually in Paris.
In 1978 he became a spokesperson for Clairol and created the Award
Winning Bernard's Artistic Team that performed internationally.
His plan was to grow the brand and eventually franchise and become
a leading salon and spa based on customer service, talent,
training, delivering fashion impact and providing his clients with
the greatest Quality of Our Clients Experience.

The new owners are committed to fulfilling Tom Bernard's dream by
returning Bernard's brands to leadership status, using superior
talented Licensed Professionals and listening to client input to
deliver significant beauty, hair and fashion impact.

Past and present clients are urged to visit any of the Bernard's
salons under the new ownership.

Web sites www.bernardssalonandspa.com and www.b2salon.com remain
active during the transition as do hours of operation.

Bernards of Marlton, LLC, filed a Chapter 11 petition (Bankr.
D.N.J. Case No. 12-25751) on June 20, 2012, estimating less than
$1 million in assets and liabilities.  The Debtor is represented
by attorneys at Ciardi Ciardi & Astin, P.C.

BEST BUY: S&P Assigns 'BB' Rating to $500M Senior Unsecured Notes
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it assigned a 'BB' issue-
level rating and a '3' recovery rating to Best Buy Co. Inc.'s
$500 million senior unsecured notes.  The recovery rating
indicates S&P's expectation of meaningful (50% to 70%) recovery in
the event of payment default.  The 'BB' corporate credit rating
and S&P's 'BB' issue-level rating and '3' recovery rating on the
company's existing unsecured notes are unchanged.  The outlook is
negative.

S&P expects Best Buy to use the note issuance to refinance its
senior unsecured notes due on July 15, 2013.  The debt issuance
will decrease the company's borrowing costs, but the total debt
amounts are unchanged.  The refinancing will allow the company to
also maintain a considerable cash balance.  However, S&P do not
believe it materially alters the company's financial risk profile.

The rating on the Minneapolis-based Best Buy reflects S&P's view
of the company's financial risk profile as "significant".  S&P's
forecast of credit ratios, with adjusted debt to EBITDA in the
2.7x to 3x range and funds from operations (FFO) to debt near 30%,
is generally on the cusp between ratios indicative of
"significant" and "intermediate" financial risk profiles.
However, the company has limited asset protection since it leases
most of its stores, has highly seasonal cash flows, and a volatile
recent operating history.  These factors contribute to S&P's
financial risk assessment of significant.

"We also view the company's business risk profile as "weak", based
on the inherent risks of the consumer electronics business, which
is cyclical and dependent on new products for propelling sales
growth.  It also incorporates our view of the competitive
environment Best Buy faces from internet-based retail formats,
discounters, warehouse clubs, and other big-box retailers in many
of its product categories.  While we believe the company has
meaningful opportunities to improve operations in the near term,
the competitive nature of the industry may lead to continued
profit pressures and offset any operational improvements," S&P
said.

BRITESTARR HOMES: Not Implicated in Lewis Contract Breach Suit
--------------------------------------------------------------
A New York district judge denied the motion of Steven Smith and
Oak Point Properties, LLC to dismiss a breach of contract lawsuit
filed by William D. Lewis, Case No. 12-CIV-985 (LGS).

The case centers on the development of 27 acres of land located at
One Oak Point Avenue in the Bronx, New York, which was owned by
Britestarr Homes Inc., which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy
protection in 2001.  As part of Britestarr's Chapter 11
reorganization plan, the Bankruptcy Court approved the transfer of
the land to ABB Equity Ventures.  In 2002, Defendants Smith and
Oak Point negotiated their purchase of the Property from ABB.
Although the Complaint is unclear, it appears that ABB never took
title to the Property, but rather transferred to Defendants Smith
and Oak Point ABB's right to purchase the Property from the
Britestarr estate.

William Lewis alleged that in 2002, he entered into an oral
agreement with the Defendants to form a partnership to develop the
Property.  As per their agreement, Mr. Lewis said he was to
receive a share of the proceeds of the eventual sale of the
Property.

Under the lawsuit, Mr. Lewis is seeking to recover what he
believes to be his rightful share of the profits from the sale of
the Property.

In a June 4, 2013 Order and Opinion available at
http://is.gd/JmsgDnfrom Leagle.com, District Judge Lorna G.
Schofield held that the Defendants' arguments rely on the flawed
premise that the Britestarr Plan bears on the case.  None of
Plaintiff's claims arise out of an obligation from Britestarr to
the Plaintiff, the judge said.

William D. Lewis is represented by Andrew Todd Miltenberg, Esq. --

BROOKE CORP: Suit v. Bucheli et al. Survives Dismissal Bid
----------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Dale L. Somers denied the defendants' motion to
dismiss the second amended version of the adversary complaint
captioned as, CHRISTOPHER J. REDMOND, Chapter 7 Trustee of Brooke
Corporation, fka Brooke Franchise Corporation), and Brooke
Investments, Inc. Plaintiff, v. BUCHELI INSURANCE AGENCY, INC., et
al., Defendants, Adv. Proc. No. 10-6179.

Agency Defendants Bucheli Insurance Agency, Inc. and Hosford
Insurance Agency, Inc. were Brooke-franchised insurance agencies.
The adversary complaint was filed by the Trustee on Oct. 25, 2010,
seeking to recover statement balances, which account for money
advanced by Brooke to or on behalf of each agency in excess of the
income attributable to the agency.  Prepetition state law claims
and postpetition causes of action under Chapter 5 of the
Bankruptcy Code were alleged.

The Motion to Dismiss was based on the provisions included in the
franchise agreements between the Agency Defendants and Brooke
Capital Corporation.

In a June 24, 2013 Memorandum Opinion and Order available at
http://is.gd/iN6zBPfrom Leagle.com, the Bankruptcy Court held
that "Fausto R. Bucheli's liability is predicated upon a guaranty
agreement which does not contain or incorporate an agreement to
arbitrate.  Defendants Bucheli Insurance Agency and Hosford
Insurance Agency have waived their right to enforce the
arbitration provisions in their respective franchise agreements
with Brooke Capital Corporation.  And if there were no waiver,
such agreements would apply only to the prepetition state law
claims asserted by the Trustee and would not provide a basis to
dismiss or to stay the claims asserted by the Trustee which arise
under Chapter 5 of the Bankruptcy Code."

                       About Brooke Corp.

Based in Kansas, Brooke Corp. -- http://www.brookebanker.com/--
was an insurance agency and finance company.  The company owned
81% of Brooke Capital.  The majority of the company's stock was
owned by Brooke Holding Inc., which, in turn was owned by the Orr

foreclosed on the BHI stock.  The company's revenues were
generated from sales commissions on the sales of property and
casualty insurance policies, consulting, lending and brokerage
services.

Brooke Corp. and Brooke Capital Corp. filed separate petitions for
Chapter 11 relief on Oct. 28, 2008; Brooke Investments, Inc. filed
for Chapter 11 relief on Nov. 3, 2008 (Bankr. D. Kan. Lead Case
No. 08-22786).  Angela R. Markley, Esq., was the Debtors' in-house
counsel.  Albert Riederer was appointed as the Debtors' Chapter 11
trustee.  He acted as special master of Brooke in prepetition
federal court proceedings.  Benjamin F. Mann, Esq., John J.
Cruciani, Esq., and Michael D. Fielding, Esq,, at Husch Blackwell
Sanders LLP, and Kathryn B. Bussing, Esq., at Blackwell Sanders
LLP, represented the Chapter 11 trustee as counsel.  David A.

the bankruptcies of Brooke Corporation, Brooke Capital, and Brooke
Investment with the Brooke Corporation bankruptcy case being the
lead case.

The case was converted to Chapter 7 on June 29, 2009.  Christopher
J. Redmond was named Chapter 7 Trustee.  He is represented by
Benjamin F. Mann, Esq., John J. Cruciani, Esq., and Michael D.
Fielding, Esq., at Husch Blackwell LLP.


CAPITOL BANCORP: Creditors Can't Sue Officers or Directors
----------------------------------------------------------
A Michigan bankruptcy judge refused to authorize Capitol Bancorp
Ltd.'s creditors to sue the bank holding company's executives over
alleged fraudulent transfers and breaches of fiduciary duty.

Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that the the reasons why creditors' committee wanted to
sue are unknown because the papers were filed under seal in May.
The hearing on July 9 was likewise sealed, and the reasons given
by the bankruptcy court for denying the request were likewise kept
secret.  Court records only show that the judge denied the motion.

The report notes that at the hearing, the judge approved auction
procedures to find a buyer for Capitol's non-bankrupt bank
subsidiaries.  Creditors support Capitol's desire to sell the
remaining banks in six states.  Capital is trying to sell the
remaining banks before they are taken over by regulators.  Four
were seized in the space of a month.  At last week's hearing, the
company's lawyer said there isn't yet a buyer to make the first
bid at auction.

The report relates that the confirmation hearing for approval of
the Chapter 11 plan was moved from Sept. 25 to Oct. 9.

                       About Capitol Bancorp

Capitol Bancorp Ltd. and Financial Commerce Corporation filed
voluntary Chapter 11 bankruptcy petitions (Bankr. E.D. Mich. Case
Nos. 12-58409 and 12-58406) on Aug. 9, 2012.

Capitol Bancorp -- http://www.capitolbancorp.com/-- is a
community banking company with a network of individual banks and
bank operations in 10 states and total consolidated assets of
roughly $2.0 billion as of June 30, 2012.  CBC owns roughly 97% of
FCC, with a number of CBC affiliates owning the remainder.  FCC,
in turn, is the holding company for five of the banks in CBC's
network.  CBC is registered as a bank holding company under the
Bank Holding Company Act of 1956, as amended, 12 U.S.C. Sec. 1841,
et seq., and trades on the OTCQB under the symbol "CBCR."

Lawyers at Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn LLP represent the
Debtors as counsel.  John A. Simon, Esq., at Foley & Lardner LLP,
represents the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors as
counsel.

In its petition, Capitol Bancorp scheduled $112,634,112 in total
assets and $195,644,527 in total liabilities.  The petitions were
signed by Cristin K. Reid, corporate president.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2012, showed
$1.749 billion in total assets, $1.891 billion in total
liabilities, and a stockholders' deficit of $141.8 million.

Prepetition, the Debtor arranged a reorganization plan that was
accepted by the requisite majorities of creditors and equity
holders in all classes.  Problems arose when affiliates of
Valstone Partners LLC declined to proceed with a tentative
agreement to fund the reorganization by paying $50 million for
common and preferred stock while buying $207 million in face
amount of defaulted commercial and residential mortgages.


CITIZENS DEVELOPMENT: Plan Disclosures Hearing Moved to Aug. 21

to a case under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code on July 24, 2013,
absent confirmation of a plan or further order of the Court, is
vacated, absent further Court order.

The continued hearing on the Bankruptcy Court's "Order (1) To Show
Cause Re: Dismissal, Conversion, or Appointment of a Trustee; and
(2) Allowing Expedited Consideration of These Issues if Debtor
Fails to Meet Certain Benchmarks" entered on Dec. 4, 2012, which
was scheduled for July 10, 2013, is continued until Aug. 21, 2013,
at 10:00 a.m.

As reported in the TCR on July 1, 2013, the Bankruptcy Court for
the Southern District of California will convene a hearing on
July 10, 2013, at 10 a.m., to consider adequacy of the Disclosure
Statement explaining Citizens Development Corp.'s Plan of
Reorganization dated May 24, 2013.

According to the Disclosure Statement, the funding for the Plan
will come from: (1) the additional financing; (2) new value
contribution in the amount of $400,000 to be made to the
Reorganized Debtor by Atlantica, the new investor; (3) the
Debtor's cash on hand which is estimated to be approximately
$25,000 as of the Effective Date -- which collectively equates to
$2,925,000 -- and (4) the revenue generated from continued
business operations.

The exit cash is proposed to be used as follows:

   a) $2 million of the exit cash will be used to fund capital
improvements to the Debtor's facilities, including the Recreation
Center and the Lake;

   b) up to $300,000 of the exit cash will be deposited into a
segregated account, in the actual sum equal to the "fair share
contribution" of the Debtor to the cost of compliance with the
Investigative Order.  The "fair share contribution" is defined as
the amount appropriately allocated to the Debtor (or by agreement
with the upstream municipalities) as its percentage portion of the
cost of compliance with the Investigative Order;

   c) approximately $455,000 of the exit cash will be used to pay
allowed administrative claims against the Debtor;

   d) up to $100,000 of the exit cash will distributed to general
unsecured creditors holding allowed claims against the Debtor; and

   e) $15,000 of the exit cash will be used to fund the retainer
payment to Kipperman.  The total anticipated costs of the Plan are
not more than $2,870,000, and not all of the exit cash is required
to be spent on or near the Effective Date of the Plan.  For
example, the Debtor intends to invest funds in capital
improvements over a short period of time, as opposed to
immediately upon confirmation of the Plan.

In exchange for the new value contribution, the new investor will
retain 100% of the equity interests in the Reorganized Debtor.

senior secured revolver and term loan and that its parent --
ClubCorp Holdings, Inc. -- announced it filed a draft registration
statement in Form S-1 on a confidential basis with the SEC for a
possible initial public offering of shares of its common stock are
both credit positive. However, ClubCorp's B2 Corporate Family

COMMERCIAL CAPITAL: Plan Confirmation Hearing Set for Aug. 6
------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Michael E. Romero of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Colorado has approved the disclosure statement
explaining the Amended Plan of Liquidation filed by James T.
Markus, the Chapter 11 trustee for Commercial Capital Inc., and
scheduled a hearing on Aug. 6, 2013, at 9:30 a.m., to consider
confirmation of the Plan.  Ballots accepting or rejecting the Plan
and any objection to confirmation of the Plan must be submitted on
or before July 26.

Under the Plan, Class 1 (Priority Claims) and Class 2 (Secured
Claims) are not impaired while Class 3 (General Unsecured
Creditors) and Class 4 (Interest Holder) are impaired.  Class 1
claims will be paid in full on the effective date of the Plan.
Class 2 Claims will retain all rights and liens on the Debtor's
property.  Holders of Class 3 Claims will receive pro-rata share
of net cash available for distribution, while Class 4 stocks will
be extinguished.

Presently, the claims against the CCI Estate total less than $65
million.  The CCI Trustee anticipates that the amount of allowed
claims will eventually re-reduce to a total of approximately $25
million to $35 million.  The CCI Trustee currently holds $947,231
as property of the CCI Estate.  There is one remaining material
asset of the CCI Estate -- a claim of CCI against a Lloyd's of
London insurance policy -- and this claim has recently been
settled and is the subject of a motion to approve the settlement.
The settlement will result in the payment of $450,000 to the
estate.

The CCI Trustee estimates that there will be approximately
$1,200,000 available for distribution to unsecured creditors
holding Allowed Unsecured Claims.  These Allowed Unsecured Claims
are estimated to total somewhere between $25 million - $35
million.  This will result in a 3-4.5% dividend on Allowed
Unsecured Claims.

Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Cooper-Booth Wholesale Co. won an extension of the
right to use secured lenders' cash collateral until Aug. 31.

DIGITAL ANGEL: Completes Exchange Agreement with VeriTeQ
--------------------------------------------------------
VeriTeQ Acquisition Corporation has completed the Share Exchange
Agreement with Digital Angel Corporation and all VeriTeQ
shareholders, whereby Digital Angel has acquired all of the issued
and outstanding shares of VeriTeQ's common stock in exchange for
4,107,592 shares of Digital Angel's Series B convertible preferred
stock, and the VeriTeQ stockholders have become the majority
owners of Digital Angel.  In conjunction with this announcement,
Digital Angel plans to file a Schedule 14C with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission.  The majority stockholders of
Digital Angel took action by written consent to change Digital
Angel's name to VeriTeQ Corporation, effect a 1-for-30 reverse
stock split, and approve a new stock incentive plan.  VeriTeQ will
continue to trade under the stock ticker "DIGA" until the reverse
stock split and name change are completed, at which time its
ticker symbol will change.

VeriTeQ is focused on the unique device identification of
implantable medical devices and radiation dose measurement during
radiation therapy through its patented and FDA cleared
technologies.  VeriTeQ's strong intellectual property portfolio
includes more than 100 patents issued, patents pending, and patent
licenses.  VeriTeQ also has data analytics capabilities related to
information gathered by its technologies.  With its passive radio
frequency identification microchip, VeriTeQ can enable medical
device manufacturers to comply with the FDA Proposed Rule for UDI,
specifically the Direct Part Marking requirement for implantable
medical devices to be read on demand.

VeriTeQ's radiation dosimeter, or biodosimetry, technologies
include the DVS SmartMarker(R) and OneDose(R).  DVS SmartMarker is
the world's first FDA cleared, implantable, wireless radiation
sensor, and is used to measure the radiation dose delivered to a
patient directly from the site of the tumor during cancer
treatment.  DVS SmartMarker is cleared for use in breast and
prostate cancer patients.  Its OneDose(R) adhesive technology is
FDA cleared for use in cancer patients being treated with external
beam radiation to measure radiation dose levels at the skin
surface.  VeriTeQ's UDI and biodosimetry technologies also have CE
marks, which is a key indicator of a product's compliance with
legislation in the European Union.

VeriTeQ's technology enables data to be transmitted from the
company's scanning devices to a designated third party recipient
database or electronic health record.  Its Office of Medicine and
Data Science is focused on linking data from disparate sources
with in vivo medical devices to create complete and accurate
amalgamations of patient data.  Data synthesis and analytics
relating directly to patient outcomes and patient safety issues
created by linking multiple data sources with granular device data
can be used to populate repository systems for hospitals,
healthcare providers, insurance companies, Medicare/Medicaid,
medical device manufacturers and regulatory authorities.  The
expertise offered by the Office of Medicine and Data Science can
ultimately benefit the patient by providing relevant information
and outcomes to medical device manufactures, thereby helping them
create safer, more effective devices for patients.

Scott R. Silverman, Chairman and CEO of VeriTeQ, stated, "The
executive team at VeriTeQ is very pleased that we are now a
publicly traded company and we are excited to bring our important
healthcare technologies to patients and providers.  We are
immediately focused on partnerships with implantable medical
device manufacturers to help them comply with FDA's Proposed Rule
for Unique Device Identification through our patented
technologies."

Digital Angel's board of directors now consists of five directors
including Mr. Silverman, Barry M. Edelstein, Michael Krawitz,
Daniel E. Penni and Shawn Wooden.

In connection with the Share Exchange, the Company is also going
to change its name to "VeriTeQ Corporation" to better reflect the
business of VeriTeQ.

Jan. 11, 2012, as amended, the Asset Purchase Agreement entered
into on Aug. 28, 2012, as amended, and the Secured Promissory Note
dated Jan. 11, 2012, in favor of PositiveID in the principal
amount of $200,000.  The Company has agreed to assume the

DIJAN INC: Trial Court Ruling Against 2 Loan Guarantors Affirmed
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Superior Court of Pennsylvania affirmed a trial court decision
denying Stuart Moskovitz's and Wallace McDonald's separate
Petitions to Strike or, Alternatively, Open Confesssion of
Judgment dated May 6, 2011.

The confession of judgment resulted from the default of three
promissory notes executed on behalf of Dijan, Inc. with Wells
Fargo, to which Messrs. Moskovitz and McDonald served as
guarantors.

Dijan Inc. filed for bankruptcy on Aug. 11, 2010.  On Dec. 10,
2010, the Bank filed its complaint in confession of judgment.
That same day, the Hon. Terrence R. Nealon of the Court of Common
Pleas of Lackawanna County entered judgment of confession against
Messrs. Moskowitz and McDonald for $2,608,725.33.

The Superior Court held that in denying the petitions to open the
confessed judgment, the trial court relied on the express
provision in the cash collateral agreement that preserved Bank's
right to remedy.

The appeals case are WELLS FARGO BANK, N.A. Appellee, v. STUART
MOSKOVITZ Appellant, Case No. 1004-MDA-2011; WELLS FARGO BANK,
N.A. Appellee, v. WALLACE MCDONALD Appellant, Case NO. 1003-MDA-

DOCTORS COMMUNITY: Reese Hospital Sale Not "Fraudulent Transfer"
----------------------------------------------------------------
Sam J. Alberts, the trustee for the Doctors Community Hospital
Corporation Liquidating Trust, appeals from the final judgment of
Bankruptcy Judge S. Martin Teel of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the District of Columbia.  In bankruptcy court, Mr. Alberts had
initiated an adversary proceeding against, inter alia, appellees
Hospital Corporation of America, Inc., and its wholly owned
subsidiaries Galen Hospital Illinois, Inc. and Western Plains
Capital, Inc.  In 1998, DCHC (through its wholly-owned subsidiary
Reese Corporation) bought Chicago-based Columbia Michael Reese
Hospital and Medical Center from HCA for approximately $66 million
to $68 million.

DCHC and Reese Corp. were heavily reliant on financing from
National Century Financial Enterprises, Inc. for satisfy ongoing
expenses. In November 2002, National Century filed for bankruptcy,
causing accounts from which DCHC and Reese Corp. drew operational
funds to be frozen. Three days after National Century's bankruptcy
filingƒ??and a little over four years after completing the
purchase of Reese Hospital, DCHC filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy
relief.

In bankruptcy court, Mr. Alberts claimed that the sale of Reese
Hospital was a "fraudulent transfer" because Reese Corp. did not
receive reasonably equivalent value for the price it paid.  Mr.
Alberts sought to avoid and recover as a fraudulent transfer the
allegedly excess purchase price.

After a series of dispositive motions and a five week bench trial,
Judge Teel issued a 192-page statement of the bankruptcy court's
findings of law and conclusions of fact.  Judge Teel calculated
the fair market value of Reese Hospital as $68.6 million,
concluded that Reese Corp. received reasonably equivalent value,
and entered judgment for the appellees.

Mr. Alberts presents two questions on appeal:

     (1) Did the bankruptcy court err when, in the course of
conducting a discounted cash flow analysis, the court treated the
Hospital's working capital as a surplus asset and then calculated
the Hospital's going concern value by adding the value of the
working capital to the value of the income that the Hospital was
projected to generate from its operations, assuming its operations
were "fully capitalized"?

     (2) Did the bankruptcy court err when, in the course of
concluding that the Hospital's net working capital could be
treated as a surplus asset and added to the Hospital's projected
income from operations, the court employed an asset valuation
method that was not supported by or consistent with any party's
expert or any learned treatise and was not subject to evaluation
under the Federal Rules of Evidence?

After reviewing the record on appeal, the decisions of the
bankruptcy court, and the parties' briefs, Chief District Judge
Royce C. Lamberth in Washington D.C. finds that Judge Teel
correctly ascertained the controlling law and did not commit clear
error in his factual findings. Furthermore, to the extent Judge
Teel committed any reversible error regarding his treatment of the
net working capital, such error is harmless.  Therefore, the
District Court affirmed the lower court's judgment.

A copy of Judge Lamberth's July 11, 2013 Memorandum Opinion is
available at http://is.gd/FHF8RGfrom Leagle.com.

Judge John G. Koeltl of the U.S. District Court for Southern
District of New York last month dismissed the appellate case,
STEPHEN LUCAS, Appellant, v. DYNEGY INC., Appellee, No. 12-CIV-
8908(JGK).

Stephen Lucas took an appeal from an order of the Southern
District New York bankruptcy court, dated October 4, 2012,
overruling the appellant's preserved objection to confirmation of
the Joint Chapter 11 Plan of Reorganization for Dynegy Inc. and
Dynegy Holdings LLC.

The Plan contains a release of claims against non-debtor third
parties, including the Debtors' former directors and officers.
The Plan provides that individuals may opt-out of the release.
The appellant is the lead plaintiff in a separate putative
securities class action against several former directors and
officers of Dynegy Inc. that are among those purportedly released
by the Plan.  That class has not yet been certified. The appellant
argued to the Bankruptcy Court that the release was impermissible
and also sought to opt-out of the release on behalf of himself and
on behalf of the putative class in the securities litigation.  The
Bankruptcy Court overruled the appellant's objection. The
Bankruptcy Court concluded that the appellant did not have
standing to object to the release individually because he had
opted out, and did not have standing to object or opt-out on
behalf of the putative class because he did not represent the
class outside the confines of the putative securities class
action.  The Bankruptcy Court held that, in any event, the non-
debtor third party releases were permissible consensual third
party releases because the affected parties had failed to opt-out
despite notice. The appellant challenged those conclusions.

In a June 6, 2013 Opinion and Order available at
http://is.gd/qQvqlrfrom Leagle.com, the District Court dismissed
the appeal, holding that the appellant lacks standing to opt out
of or object to the Release on behalf of the putative class and to
object to the Release individually.

electric energy, capacity and ancillary services in key U.S.
markets.  The power generation portfolio consists of approximately
12,200 megawatts of baseload, intermediate and peaking power
plants fueled by a mix of natural gas, coal and fuel oil.

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

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

Dynegy Holdings and its affiliated debtor-entities are represented

has tapped Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP as counsel.

Dynegy Holdings and its parent, Dynegy Inc., completed their
Chapter 11 reorganization and emerged from bankruptcy Oct. 1,
2012.  Under the terms of the DH/Dynegy Plan, DH merged with and
into Dynegy, with Dynegy, Inc., remaining as the surviving entity.

Dynegy Northeast Generation, Inc., Hudson Power, L.L.C., Dynegy
Danskammer, L.L.C. and Dynegy Roseton, L.L.C., won confirmation of
their plan of liquidation in March 2013, allowing the former
operating units of Dynegy to consummate a settlement agreement
resolving some lease trustee claims and sell their facilities.


EDISON MISSION: Court of Appeals Affirms Dismissal of PSD Claims
----------------------------------------------------------------
The United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit
affirmed the U.S. District Court's dismissal of the nine claims
for clean air act violations against Midwest Generation, LLC, an
indirect subsidiary of Edison Mission Energy.  Other counts in the
complaint that allege violations of opacity and particulate matter
limitations under the Illinois State Implementation Plan and
related claims under Title V of the CAA have not been dismissed.

Since August 2009, Midwest Generation has been defending an action
brought in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of
Illinois by the State of Illinois and the Department of Justice.
The complaint alleged violations of the Clean Air Act and related
regulations.  Among the allegations were ten counts alleging that
Midwest Generation violated the CAA's Prevention of Significant
Deterioration provisions by operating six power plants that
Commonwealth Edison, a prior owner of the plants, had modified
without obtaining PSD permits.  Nine of the ten counts related to
PSD requirements were dismissed in March 2010, and the tenth count
was also dismissed to the extent it sought civil penalties under
the CAA, as barred by the applicable statute of limitations.

Following the 2010 dismissals, the government plaintiffs filed an
amended complaint, with claims that attempted to add Commonwealth
Edison and EME as defendants and introduce new legal theories to
impose liability on Midwest Generation and EME.  On March 16,
2011, the U.S. District Court again dismissed nine of the ten PSD
claims asserted against Midwest Generation and EME, along with
claims related to alleged violations of Title V of the CAA to the
extent based on the dismissed PSD claims, and dismissed all claims
asserted against Commonwealth Edison.  The Court denied a motion
to dismiss a claim by intervenor citizens groups for civil
penalties in the remaining PSD claim, but noted that the
plaintiffs would be required to convince the Court that the
statute of limitations should be equitably tolled.

ENDICOTT INTERCONNECT: Circuit-Board Maker Files in Utica
---------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Endicott Interconnect Technologies Inc., a producer
of printed circuit boards and "advanced flip chips," filed a
Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. N.D.N.Y. Case No. 13-bk-61156) on
July 10 to sell the business before cash runs out by the end of
September.

Based in Endicott, New York, and formed in 2002, EIT is the
successor to the microelectronics division of IBM Corp.  The
products are used in aerospace, defense and medication
applications, among others.

Revenue of $414 million in 2008 declined to less than $100 million

circuit board manufactures," according to a court filing.  Losses
since 2009 totaled almost $100 million.

According to the report, the company says it will promptly file
papers establishing procedures for a sale.  Discussions with a
buyer are in progress, according to papers filed with the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court in Utica, New York.

Liabilities include $5 million on first-lien debt and another
$5 million on a second-lien obligation.  Insiders are owed $6.1
million on an unsecured note.  In addition, trade suppliers are
owed $35 million.  Another $32 million is owing for loans made by
shareholders.  The petition lists the assets as valued at less
than $50 million.

of the Buyer Payment or any other consideration on account of its
Interests.

EVERGREEN OIL: Court Approves Revised Bid to Hire John Nash
-----------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California
has approved Evergreen Oil, Inc.'s amended application to employ
John P. Nash as special litigation counsel.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on May 30, 2013,
Evergreen Oil sought and obtained approval from the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court to employ Mr. Nash as special litigation
counsel.  The Debtors sought to employ JPNA as special litigation
counsel so that the firm may continue to represent the Debtors in
connection with the Timec litigation, the Rev Litigation, the VG
Claim and the Air product Claim; and to represent the Debtors in
any other litigation matters which may arise during the pendency
of the Debtor's chapter 11 cases and for which the Debtors may
request JPNA's assistance.  Mr. Nash's hourly billing rate is
$250.

On May 16, 2013, the Court entered an order denying the first
application for these reasons: (1) Mr. Nash (the principal of
JPNA) holds a stock option for 1,000 shares of stock in one of the
Debtor's parent company and stock options are an appearance of
conflict of interest; and (2) the Application did not
unambiguously state whether JPNA sought compensation pursuant to
11 U.S.C. Section 328 or 11 U.S.C. Section 330 as required by LBR
2014-1(b)(1)(A).

Mr. Nash later agreed to relinquish and waive the Stock Option.
Pursuant to papers filed by the Debtors, JPNA also seeks
compensation pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Section 330.

FLASHCOM INC: Court Enters Amended Ruling in Suit Against Sachs
---------------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Robert Kwan entered an Amended Supplemental
Memorandum Decision on Plaintiff's Motion for Entry Of Judgment
and Andra Sachs Defendants' Motion For Relief From Orders Pursuant
to Fed. R. Civ. P. 60 in the adversary complaint CAROLYN A. DYE,
Liquidating Trustee, Plaintiff, v. ANDRA SACHS; COMMUNICATIONS
VENTURES III, L.P.; COMMUNICATIONS VENTURES III CEO &
ENTREPRENEURS FUNDS L.P.; MAYFIELD IX, a Delaware Limited
Partnership; MAYFIELD ASSOCIATES FUNDS IV, a Delaware Limited
Partnership; DAVID HELFRICH; TODD BROOKS; BRADFORD SACHS; RICHARD
RASMUS; and KEVIN FONG, Defendants, Adv. No. 2:12-AP-01339-RK.

In the original Memorandum Decision entered on March 5, 2013, the
Court ruled that it would grant the motion of defendants Andra
Sachs, Ashby Enterprises and Max-Singer Partnership (collectively
"Andra Sachs Defendants") for relief under Rule 60 of the Federal
Rules of Civil Procedure.  However, in its original memorandum
decision, the Court did not address the argument of plaintiff
Carolyn Dye, Liquidating Trustee that such relief is precluded by
the United States Supreme Court's decision in United Student Aid
Funds, Inc. v. Espinosa, 559 U.S. 260, 130 S.Ct. 1367 (2010).

By its Amended Supplemental Memorandum Decision dated June 24,
2013 available at http://is.gd/SGAkHbfrom Leagle.com, the Court
addresses and rejects the Trustee's argument.  The amended
supplemental memorandum decision amends the Court's supplemental
memorandum decision filed and entered on March 4, 2013 to correct
factual inaccuracies in that decision referring to debtor as a
California corporation and to discuss the applicable interest rate
on the judgment to be entered on the Trustee's motion after
consideration of the supplemental briefing on that issue ordered

HOSTESS BRANDS: Iconic Snack Cakes to Hit Shelves After Asset Sale
------------------------------------------------------------------
Staging the "Sweetest Comeback in the History of Ever," Hostess(R)
snack cakes have officially returned on July 15 in blockbuster
fashion.  Company executives, family members of Twinkie founder
James Dewar and other Hostess fans gathered on July 15 to
celebrate the historic comeback at the Hostess bakery in Schiller
Park, Illinois, outside of Chicago, where Twinkies were born in
1930.

Approximately 100 million snack cakes, including Twinkies,
CupCakes and bags of Donettes, will hit store shelves over the
first two weeks of the comeback -- as will Zingers(R), HoHos(R),
DingDongs(R), fruit pies and mini muffins.  SnoBalls and SuzyQs
will return in the next few months.  Because of the overwhelming
demand, Hostess will have five times more Twinkies on the market
during the first two weeks of the comeback than during the same
two-week period last year.

The July 15 historic milestone comes four months after investment
firms Metropoulos & Co. and Apollo Global Management, LLC rescued
the brand, buying select assets out of bankruptcy and setting in
place bold plans to bring back iconic Hostess snack cakes.

"When Hostess products disappeared last year there was an
incredible groundswell of emotion from consumers who couldn't
imagine a world without Hostess snack cakes," said Dean
Metropoulos, CEO of Hostess Brands, LLC.  "That's why we're here
[Mon]day; America wanted its snacks back -- they wanted the
original and we're honored to make that happen.

"We are committed to investing in this company, reinvigorating
these beloved brands, innovating to meet evolving consumer
preferences with new products and continuing to bake the high-
quality, fresh and delicious snack cakes that have given Hostess
its enduring appeal," he added.  "Judging by the incredible
reception we've received, Hostess has a very exciting future."

Retail customers representing more than 100,000 stores placed
significant orders in advance of the comeback -- with orders
skyrocketing as news of the official comeback date broke.  Overall
demand is several times greater than levels experienced in prior
years.  The bakeries have been running at capacity, but because of
the extraordinary number of orders, it is possible that not all
stores will have all products on shelves immediately.

"Clearly retailers and consumers could not wait to have Hostess
snack cakes back in stores," said Rich Seban, President of Hostess
Brands, LLC.  "We are already hearing early reports of products
flying out of stores almost as fast as they've appeared on
shelves.  As orders have continued to pour in, we are doing
everything possible to fulfill them equally and timely for
everyone."

The "Sweetest Comeback in the History of Ever" tag line created
for the multi-million dollar integrated marketing, advertising and
public relations campaign -- developed in connection with the
launch by Bernstein-Rein and LAK Public Relations -- signals a new
attitude for the brand and a push to broaden its appeal.

"Obviously there is considerable nostalgia associated with a brand
that for generations has been part of the fabric of America. But
there is also tremendous passion for the brand today among
consumers," said Daren Metropoulos, principal of Metropoulos & Co.
"This comeback has created a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to
leverage the nostalgic sentiment and, at the same time,
reintroduce the Hostess brand with a bolder attitude and a more
contemporary voice."

"Hostess has an inherent cool factor -- a magical quality that has
transcended time and trends and given the brand a lasting appeal,
generation after generation," said Evan Metropoulos, principal of
Metropoulos & Co.  "There's no question the Hostess brand is back
- and back big."

In connection with [Mon]day's events, a Hostess food truck, along
with Twinkie the Kid, arrived in New York City's Rockefeller
Center to kick-off a coast-to-coast tour of Twinkie giveaways that
will end in Los Angeles in August.

Hostess products are currently being produced in four bakeries:
Schiller Park, Illinois; Emporia, Kansas; Columbus, Georgia; and
Indianapolis, Indiana.  Under the company's new distribution
model, Hostess products are delivered to retailers' warehouses,
rather than individual stores.  This will enable the company to
reach about 160,000 stores by the end of the year, including tens
of thousands of dollar stores, club stores, drug stores and
vending machines that were previously inaccessible.

"Our goal is as simple as it is ambitious: wherever consumers can
buy a candy bar, they should be able to purchase a Twinkie," added
Dean Metropoulos.

The company's new owners, which emerged as winning bidders for the
majority of Hostess' snack cake business on March 12, 2013, plan
to invest approximately $100 million this year making upgrades to
bakeries and facilities.  In addition, plans are underway to open
a fifth bakery next year, at a cost of $75-80 million, in a yet to
be determined location.

Working with the new owners in connection with this historic
comeback have been Acosta Sales & Marketing, which has been
instrumental in merchandising activities and helping to facilitate
Hostess' expanded reach; Lean Logistics, which has facilitated
logistics and distribution; and Accenture, which has played a key
role in the implementation of new IT systems.

12-22056) in White Plains, New York.  Hostess Brands disclosed
assets of $982 million and liabilities of $1.43 billion as of the
Chapter 11 filing.

The bankruptcy filing was made two years after predecessors
Interstate Bakeries Corp. and its affiliates emerged from
bankruptcy (Bankr. W.D. Mo. Case No. 04-45814).

The official committee of unsecured creditors selected New York
law firm Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel LLP as its counsel. Tom
Mayer and Ken Eckstein head the legal team for the committee.

Hostess Brands in mid-November 2012 opted to pursue the orderly
wind down of its business and sale of its assets after the Bakery,
Confectionery, Tobacco and Grain Millers Union (BCTGM) commenced a
nationwide strike.  The Debtor failed to reach an agreement with
BCTGM on contract changes.

Hostess Brands sold its businesses and most of the plants to five
different buyers for an aggregate of $860 million.  Hostess still
has some plants, depots and other facilities the buyers didn't
acquire.

The bankruptcy estate has changed its name to Old HB Inc.


IGPS COMPANY: U.S. Trustee, Ex-CEO Say Auction Floor Too Low
------------------------------------------------------------
Matt Chiappardi of BankruptcyLaw360 reported that the U.S.
Trustee's Office and the founder and former CEO of bankrupt
plastic pallet maker iGPS Co. blasted the company's sale plan,
arguing that the $36 million auction floor is too low for a debtor
they say could have more than $500 million in assets.

According to the report, U.S. Trustee Roberta A. DeAngelis and
former iGPS CEO Bobby L. Moore argue that when the value of all of
the company's pallets is factored, the debtor has assets of
between $400 million and $590 million.

                          About iGPS Co.

iGPS Company LLC filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition (Bankr. D.
Del. Case No. 13-11459) on June 4, 2013, to sell its assets to a

JEFFERSON COUNTY: Bondholders Appeal Ruling on Attorneys' Fees
--------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Jefferson County, Alabama, is being called upon to
defend the decision handed down in June by the bankruptcy judge
concluding that the county can pay some of its legal expenses from
sewer income that otherwise would go to holders of sewer bonds.

According to the report, the bondholders' indenture trustee and
bond insurance companies filed their appeal last week from the 51-
page, singled-spaced opinion handed down by U.S. Bankruptcy Judge
Thomas B. Bennett in Birmingham, Alabama.  Judge Bennett ruled
that the county could charge some of its legal expenses from the
Chapter 9 municipal bankruptcy to sewer bondholders under Section
928(b) of the Bankruptcy Code even though the costs were not
operating expenses of the sewer system.

The report notes that the June opinion was the third in what could
be four opinions defining how much sewer revenue the county can
retain before paying the reminder to bondholders.  Judge Bennett
will hold a hearing on Aug. 6 for approval of disclosure materials
explaining the county's Chapter 11 plan based on a settlement with
holders of more than 75 percent of the $3.2 billion in sewer debt.

The report relates that sewer bondholders will receive 65 percent
in cash.  If they elect to waive claims against JPMorgan Chase &

The lawsuit over control of the sewers and revenue is Bank of New
York Mellon v. Jefferson County, Alabama (In re Jefferson County,
Alabama), 12-00016, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Northern District
Alabama (Birmingham).

                       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 ArantBoult 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.

In June 2013, the county reached settlement with holders of 78
percent of the $3.1 billion in sewer debt at the core of the
county's financial problems.  The bondholders will be paid $1.84
billion through a refinancing, according to a term sheet.  The
settlement calls for JPMorgan Chase & Co., the owner of $1.22
billion in bonds, to make the largest concessions so other
bondholder will recover more.


JERRY HERLING: Ruling in Dispute v. Wyoming Machinery Reversed
--------------------------------------------------------------
JERRY HERLING, Appellant (Defendant), v. WYOMING MACHINERY CO., a
Wyoming corporation, Appellee (Plaintiff), No. S-12-0227 (Wyo.),
involves a complicated series of events that have so far led to
litigation in as many as three Wyoming district courts, a jury
trial in the United States District Court for the District of
Wyoming, a bankruptcy proceeding in California, and an appeal
before the Supreme Court of Wyoming.

Jerry Herling Construction, Inc., contracted with Wyoming
Machinery for rental and service of earthmoving equipment, but
defaulted on the payments due under the agreement. Wyoming
Machinery seeks to enforce personal guaranties of JHCI's
performance against Jerry Herling, JHCI's CEO.  Mr. Herling argues
that an assignment of JHCI's retainage account and a settlement
between other parties released him from his guaranties.

In a July 10, 2013 ruling available at http://is.gd/X8aZHOfrom
Leagle.com, the Supreme Court of Wyoming agrees with the trial
court that Wyoming Machinery was entitled to judgment against Mr.
Herling on his guaranties as a matter of law, but finds that there
are genuine issues of material facts as to the correct amount of
the judgment.

According to the Supreme Court, the district court properly
concluded that JHCI's assignment of retainage and Wyoming
Machinery's settlement agreement with Tetra Tech and Safeco did
not release Herling from his personal guaranties as a matter of
law. There are no genuine issues of material fact as to Wyoming
Machinery's claim that JHCI owed it $1,383,472.93 and that Mr.
Herling guaranteed payment of that amount as a matter of law.
However, Mr. Herling successfully raised genuine issues of
material fact as to the ownership of the funds in JHCI's retainage
account with Tetra Tech, and therefore as to whether he was
entitled to credit for the $500,000 settlement.

"We accordingly reverse and remand for further proceedings to
determine the correct amount of the judgment to be awarded to
Wyoming Machinery," the Supreme Court said.

Carissa D. Mobley, Esq., and Cameron S. Walker, Esq. --

Bon, Walker & Studer, LLC, in Casper, Wyoming, represent Mr.
Herling.

Based in Banning, California, Jerry Herling Construction, Inc.
filed for Chapter 11 protection (Bank. C.D. Calif. Case No.
10-20032) on April 5, 2010.  Judge Deborah J. Saltzman presides
over the case.  Lazaro E. Fernandez, Esq., represents the Debtor.
The Debtor estimated both assets and debts of between $1 million
and $10 million.

K-V PHARMACEUTICAL: Files New Plan for Subordinate Creditor Buyout
------------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that K-V Pharmaceutical Co. filed a revised reorganization
plan and disclosure materials July 11 reflecting a compromise
where junior creditors can buy the lion's share of the reorganized
business.

According to the report, last month, the bankruptcy court approved
an agreement for exit financing and a stock-purchase agreement
together providing enough cash to pay off senior secured
noteholders in full, in cash, with interest.  As originally filed
in January, the reorganization plan called for holders of $225
million in first-lien notes to become the new owners through a
debt swap.  Now, it will be holders of $200 million in convertible
notes who in large part will be the owners on emergence from
bankruptcy.

The report notes that a final hitch was worked out last month when
holders of convertible subordinated notes agreed that Silver Point
Finance LLC, one of the senior noteholders, could participate in
the buyout group.  On account of the $200 million owing on the
convertible debt, holders will receive 7 percent of the
reorganized company's stock, for a predicted recovery of 10.9
percent, according to the revised disclosure statement.

The report relates that general unsecured creditors with claims
ranging between $13.9 million and $18.3 million will share a pot
of $10.25 million in cash, for a recovery of 57.2 percent to 73.6
percent.  The convertible note holder group and Silver Point will
help finance the plan by purchasing 1.85 million shares for $20
each.

An additional 72.2 percent of the new stock will be sold to
convertible noteholders in a rights offering for $20 a share.  The
offering is backstopped by the same investor group and Silver
Point.  As a fee for the backstop, the investors and Silver Point
will be given 5 percent of the new stock.

The convertible note holder group includes Capital Ventures
International, Greywolf Capital Overseas Master Fund and an
affiliate, and Kingdon Capital Management LLC.  Silver Point
serves as agent for senior noteholders in their roles as so-called
DIP lenders.  The senior noteholders contended earlier in the case
that the convertible noteholders were "out-of-the-money."

                 Creditors' Opposition to Plan

Lance Duroni of BankruptcyLaw360 reported that KIT Digital's
unsecured creditors joined a committee representing shareholders
and balked at the media software company's private equity-backed
reorganization plan, saying it runs afoul of the Bankruptcy Code's
repayment scheme and might not deliver on the promise of a full
recovery.

According to the report, in an objection filed in New York
bankruptcy court, KIT's official committee of unsecured creditors
expressed its opposition to the prepackaged plan. It said KIT has
repeatedly assured unsecured creditors that their claims will be
covered by the $25 million in cash, the report related.

Katy Stech writing for Dow Jones' DBR Small Cap reports that
creditors of KIT digital are protesting the company's bankruptcy
rescue plan -- a $25 million deal with investment funds that would
take over nearly 90% of its ownership -- over payments that they
said could unfairly flow to shareholders even if the company's
unsecured debts aren't paid off first.

KIT DIGITAL: Creditors Oppose Plan Confirmation in August
---------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that after dropping hints for weeks, the Kit Digital Inc.
creditors' committee came out officially in opposition to court
approval of the Chapter 11 plan at an Aug. 15 confirmation
hearing.

According to the report, at first blush, creditor opposition is
unexpected given that court-approved disclosure materials say the
plan may pay unsecured creditors in full on their claims ranging
from $11.5 million to $14.85 million in the aggregate.
Advertising doesn't measure up to reality, according to papers the
committee submitted to the bankruptcy judge last week.  The
committee said the plan may generate as little as 40 percent of
unsecured claims.

The report notes that the official equity committee is urging
shareholders to vote against the plan.  The creditors' committee
argues that the plan violates the absolute priority rule because
shareholders will retain ownership without a guarantee of full
payment to creditors.  Kit filed for Chapter 11 reorganization in
late April after working out the plan in advance.  Three existing
shareholders are offering to pay $25 million for 89.3 percent of
the stock.  They are Prescott Group Capital Management, JEC
Capital Partners and Stichting Bewaarder Ratio Capital Partners.

The report discloses that according to an ad hoc group of other
stockholders, JEC is a private-equity investor affiliated with
Kit's chief executive.  The $3 million loan financing the Chapter
11 effort would convert into the other 10.7 percent of the stock
under the company's plan.

KNOWLEDGE UNIVERSE: S&P Puts 'CCC' CCR on CreditWatch Positive
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its 'CCC' corporate
credit rating on U.S. early childhood education provider Knowledge
Universe Education LLC (KUE) on CreditWatch with positive
implications.

At the same time, S&P assigned KUE's $342 million credit facility
its 'B-' issue-level rating (at the same level as the corporate
credit rating), with a recovery rating of '3', indicating S&P's
expectation of meaningful (50% to 70%) recovery for lenders in the
event of a payment default.  The facility consists of a
$267 million term loan due 2019 and a $75 million revolving credit
facility due 2018.

The company will use the proceeds to refinance its existing 7.75%
$260 million senior unsecured notes due February 2015 and
$75 million revolving credit facility due June 2014.  The
transaction will extend debt maturities and reduce interest
expense.

"The CreditWatch listing reflects our expectation that KUE will be
able to maintain adequate liquidity and a sufficient margin of
compliance with financial covenants following completion of the
refinancing as proposed, despite our view that profitability will
remain weak, albeit slowly improving, and discretionary cash flow
will stay slightly negative," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Hal Diamond.  The company's still-elevated debt leverage
and capital spending requirements to maintain competitiveness of
its centers underpin S&P's assessment of its "highly leveraged"
financial profile.  S&P views KUE's business risk profile as
"vulnerable" because of the sensitivity of capacity utilization
rates to high unemployment, its low EBITDA margin relative to
peers due to low capacity utilization and a large number of
money-losing centers.  Also, slightly less than 25% of revenues
are derived from state and federal subsidized programs, which are
vulnerable to budget constraints.

KUE is a midsize company, and the largest provider of early
childhood education and child care in the U.S.  Its share of the
child care market is small at around 3%, which is nearly twice as
large as the next largest competitor.  It has a broad geographical
network, though the industry is highly fragmented, mature, and
cyclical.  S&P believes these dynamics will result in the company
reporting highly variable revenues and even greater volatility in
EBITDA over the course of the economic cycle.  The company also
has a small presence (about 6% of its centers) in less volatile
workplace-based child care, though the related investment
requirements to expand this business are depressing segment
profitability.  Overall revenue visibility is limited, as retail
clients pay tuition one week in advance, without any commitment.
S&P sees the risk that a reversal of the current trend of
declining U.S. unemployment, which S&P do not expect, together
with the fixed-cost structure of the business, could undermine
revenue and earnings.

The CreditWatch listing reflects S&P's expectation that it will
likely raise the corporate credit rating to 'B-' following the
completion of the refinancing.  An upgrade to 'B-' would also be
based on its expectation that the company will maintain adequate
liquidity, despite higher capital spending requirements and
cyclical operating performance.


LEE'S FORD: Exclusive Plan Filing Date Extended Until Aug. 31
-------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Tracey N. Wise of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern
District of Kentucky, London Division, extended until Aug. 31,
2013, Lee's Ford Dock, Inc., et al.'s exclusive period to file a
plan of reorganization and until Oct. 30, 2013, their exclusive
period to solicit acceptances of that plan.

Judge Wise, in extending the Debtors' exclusivity periods, found
that the Debtors demonstrated the requisite "cause" for a limited
extension of exclusivity under Section 1121(d)(1) of the
Bankruptcy Code despite the objections raised by Branch Banking
and Trust Company and the United States Trustee.

Both BB&T and the U.S. Trustee argued that the Debtors have not
established "cause" to extend their period of exclusivity under
which to file a Plan under Section 1121(d)(1).  BB&T complained
that the Debtors will not be substantially prejudiced if they are
required to file their plan of reorganization and disclosure
statement before they resolve their purported claim with the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers.  The Debtors, in their motion seeking
extension of their exclusivity periods, stated that the additional
time will be used for them to submit additional information to the
Corps, for the Corps to consider the information and issue its
decision on the Corps claim, and for the Debtors to formulate
their Chapter 11 plan in accordance with the decision.

Amelia Martin Adams, Esq., and Laura Day DelCotto, Esq., at
DELCOTTO LAW GROUP PLLC, in Lexington, Kentucky, represent the
Debtors.

Martin B. Tucker, Esq., at FROST BROWN TODD LLC, in Lexington,

collectively operate as "Lee's Ford Resort & Marina" --

lodging facilities, the Harbor Restaurant & Tavern, a retail
store, and a boat brokerage business and Web site located at

Hamilton Brokerage LLC and Hamilton Capital LLC are not actively
involved in the Debtors' operations, but are holding companies set
up as part of the structure of the original purchase transactions
which began in 2003.

The Debtors' revenues were adversely impacted by the lowering of
the water level of Lake Cumberland in January 2007 to allow for
repairs to Wolf Creek Dam.  The Debtors were forced to incur
extraordinary costs to relocate the Dock and related facilities in
accordance with the new water level.

DelCotto Law Group PLLC serves as the Debtors' counsel.  The
Debtor disclosed $21,225,899 in assets and $13,339,745 in
liabilities as of the Chapter 11 filing.  The petition was signed
by James D. Hamilton, president.  Mr. Hamilton has been designated
as the individual responsible for performing the duties of the
Debtors.

The U.S. Trustee has said an official committee has not been
appointed in the bankruptcy case of Lee's Ford Dock Inc. because
an insufficient number of persons holding unsecured claims against
the Debtor have expressed interest in serving on a committee.  The
U.S. Trustee reserves the right to appoint a committee should
interest developed among the creditors.


LEE'S FORD: Employs Smith Currie as Special Counsel
---------------------------------------------------
Lee's Ford Dock, Inc., sought and obtained authority from the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky, London
Division, to employ Smith, Currie & Hancock LLP as its special
counsel to advise and assist the Debtor in connection with its
pursuit of claims against the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

The Debtor will pay the firm $25,000 per month in the months of
June, July, and August 2013, which funds will be held in the
firm's escrow account pending further order of the Court.

Karl F. Dix, Jr., Esq. -- kfdix@smithcurrie.com -- a partner at
Smith, Currie & Hancock LLP, will be the firm attorney primarily
in charge of the engagement, and he may also work with his partner
in the firm's Washington, D.C. office, Alan Saltman, Esq. --
aisaltman@smithcurrie.com.

Mr. Dix's standard hourly rate is $380, and Mr. Saltman's standard
hourly rate is $485.  However, in exchange for the contingency fee
component in the engagement agreement between the Debtor and the
firm, the firm has agreed to reduce Mr. Dix and Mr. Saltman's
hourly rates for this matter by one-third to $245 and $325,
respectively.  The Debtor will also pay the firm's out-of-pocket
expenses.

According to Mr. Dix, the firm does not presently hold a retainer
of the Debtor's funds.  However, the firm has agreed to provide
the services provided that the Debtors pay the firm $25,000 per
month in the months of June, July, and August 2013.

Mr. Dix also assured the Court that his firm is a "disinterested
person" as the term is defined in Section 101(14) of the
Bankruptcy Code and does represent any interest adverse to the
Debtor's and its estate's.

LOCATE MERGER: Moody's Assigns B3 CFR; Outlook Stable
-----------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B3 corporate family rating
and B3-PD probability of default rating to Locate Merger Corp,
Inc., a new entity formed by funds advised and/or managed by
Leonard Green & Partners, L.P. that will merge into OPE USIC
Holdings, Inc., at transaction closing.

Moody's also assigned B2 ratings to Locate Merger Corp, Inc.'s
proposed first lien senior secured bank credit facilities,
consisting of a $75 million revolving credit facility due 2018 and
a $430 million term loan due 2020.

Moody's also assigned a Caa2 rating to the proposed $165 million
second lien senior secured term loan due 2021. The ratings outlook
is stable.

Proceeds from the proposed bank debt combined with an
approximately $310 million cash equity contribution will be used
to fund the acquisition of USIC and repay existing debt. The
assigned ratings are subject to review of final documentation.

The B3 CFR primarily reflects USIC's highly leveraged capital
structure -- in the form of pro-forma leverage of approximately
7.2 times (on a debt/EBITDA basis) for the LTM period ended March
31, 2013 (adjusted for the transaction and including Moody's
standard adjustments). Moody's expects that any incremental
improvement in USIC's leverage profile over the medium term, would
serve to reduce the company's financial risk, such that it becomes
more representative of the current B3 rating.

The existing ratings of United States Infrastructure Corporation
(old entity) were placed on review for downgrade reflecting the
expected weakening of credit metrics if the proposed transaction
closes. Upon closing of the transaction, Moody's expects to
withdraw these ratings.

Ratings assigned:

Locate Merger Corp, Inc.

  Corporate family rating at B3

  Probability of default rating at B3-PD

  Proposed $75 million first lien senior secured revolving credit
  facility due 2018 at B2 (LGD3, 36%)

  Proposed $430 million first lien senior secured term loan due
  2020 at B2 (LGD3, 36%)

  Proposed $165 million second lien senior secured term loan due
  2021 at Caa2 (LGD5, 88%)

Ratings placed on review for downgrade and to be withdrawn at
transaction closing:

United States Infrastructure Corporation (old entity)

  Corporate family rating at B2

  Probability of default rating at B2-PD

  $60 million first lien senior secured revolving credit facility
  due 2016 at B1 (LGD3, 33%)

  $190 million first lien senior secured term loan due 2017 at B1
  (LGD3, 33%)

Ratings Rationale

USIC's B3 CFR primarily reflects its high pro-forma leverage,
small scale, significant customer concentration and narrow service
offering. For the LTM period ended March 31, 2013, the company's
leverage on a debt/EBITDA basis is approximately 7.2 times (pro-
forma for the proposed transaction and including Moody's standard
adjustments). The B3 rating also considers longer-term pricing
pressures facing USIC due to its dependency on a small group of
customers for a majority of its business. Furthermore, the rating
takes into account the inherent cash flow seasonality of USIC's
business model and exposure to aggressive bidding from
competitors, weather-related disruptions and higher fuel prices,
any of which could weaken the company's cash flows from Moody's
current expectations.

These considerations are tempered by the company's leading market
position, its established and contractual relationships with blue-
chip utilities, and the legal requirement to locate and mark
utility infrastructure prior to initiation of any underground
excavation. The rating is also supported by USIC's solid execution
ability as evidenced by the company's recent track record of
operational improvement and successful integration of
transformative acquisitions.

The stable ratings outlook reflects Moody's expectation that
USIC's key credit metrics will improve incrementally to a level
that is more representative of the B3 corporate family rating.

Upward rating action could be considered should USIC generate
consistent positive free cash flow and sustain its Debt/ EBITDA
towards 5.5 times and (EBITDA-Capex)/ Interest towards 2.0 times.

Downward rating pressure could develop should USIC's liquidity
position become inadequate or should its earnings deteriorate such
that Debt/ EBITDA was sustained above 7.5 times or (EBITDA-Capex)/
Interest was sustained below 1.0 times.

United States Infrastructure Corporation, based in Indianapolis,
Indiana, is a provider of outsourced infrastructure locating and
marking services to telephone, electric, gas, cable and water
utilities across several regions in the United States. The company
is being acquired by funds advised and/or managed by Leonard Green
& Partners, L.P.

The principal methodology used in this rating was the Global
Business & Consumer Service Industry Rating 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.


LOCATION BASED TECHNOLOGIES: Incurs $3.1 Million Net Loss in Q3
---------------------------------------------------------------

and Exchange Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q

the same period during the prior year.

For the nine months ended May 31, 2013, the Company incurred a net
loss of $7.95 million on $1.55 million of total net revenue, as
compared with a net loss of $5.07 million on $368,440 of total
revenue for the nine months ended May 31, 2012.

As of May 31, 2013, the Company had $4.18 million in total assets,

Irvine, Calif.-based Location Based Technologies, Inc., designs,

services.

Comiskey & Company, the Company's independent registered public
accounting firm, included an explanatory paragraph in its report
on the Company's financial statements for the fiscal year ended
Aug. 31, 2012, which expresses substantial doubt about the
Company's ability to continue as a going concern.  The independent
auditors noted that the Company has incurred recurring losses
since inception and has an accumulated deficit in excess of
$45,000,000.  There is minimal sales history for the Company's
products, which are new to the marketplace.


LONE PINE: S&P Lowers Corporate Credit Rating to 'CCC-'
-------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it lowered its long-term
corporate credit rating on Calgary, Alta.-based independent
exploration and production (E&P) company Lone Pine Resources
Canada Ltd. to 'CCC-' from 'CCC+'.  At the same time, Standard &
Poor's lowered its issue-level rating on the company's senior
unsecured notes to 'C' from 'CCC-'.  The '6' recovery rating on
the notes is unchanged.  The ratings remain on CreditWatch with
negative implications.

"The downgrade reflects our assessment that Lone Pine could face a
default, distressed exchange, or redemption by Aug. 15, absent
unexpected and significantly favorable changes in the company's
circumstances," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Aniki Saha-
Yannopoulos.  "Although the note indenture allows Lone Pine an
additional 30-day grace period, we could lower the ratings if we
believe an interest payment will not be made.  We believe the
company did not comply with its current maximum leverage covenant
under its revolving credit facility as of June 30, 2013, and thus
we also believe its access to the revolver might be restricted.
Access to this revolving credit facility is an important component
of Lone Pine's liquidity; the company had minimal cash on hand,
C$20 million available under its revolver, and no other source of
liquidity as of March 31, 2012.  It has a C$10 million interest
payment due on Aug. 15.  Unless Lone Pine completes a strategic
transaction in the next few weeks, we believe the company might be
unable to make its next interest payment by mid-September," Ms.
Saha-Yannopoulos added.

The ratings on Lone Pine reflect Standard & Poor's view of the
company's "vulnerable" business risk profile and "highly
leveraged" financial risk profile.  The ratings also reflect what
Standard & Poor's views as Lone Pine's weak liquidity, non-
compliance with financial covenants, and possible default on
interest payment in mid-August.

Lone Pine is a small E&P company with most of its production from
Alberta.

S&P intends to resolve the CreditWatch placement before the end of
August, and sooner if Lone Pine announces any material
transaction.


MERRIMACK PHARMACEUTICALS: Offering 5MM Shares & $125MM Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------
Merrimack Pharmaceuticals, Inc., has priced concurrent public
offerings of 5,000,000 shares of its common stock at a price to
the public of $5.00 per share and $125,000,000 aggregate principal
amount of its 4.50 percent convertible senior notes due 2020, in
each case, offered pursuant to Merrimack's effective Registration
Statement on Form S-3 and a related prospectus filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission.  Merrimack has granted to the
underwriters in the common stock offering an option, exercisable
for 30 days, to purchase up to an additional 750,000 shares of its
common stock and granted to the underwriters in the Notes offering
an option, exercisable for 30 days, to purchase up to an
additional $18,750,000 in aggregate principal amount of Notes.

Merrimack expects to use the net proceeds from both offerings to
complete the clinical development of, seek marketing approval for
and fund pre-approval commercial efforts for MM-398 for the
treatment of patients with metastatic pancreatic cancer whose
cancer has progressed on treatment with the chemotherapy drug
gemcitabine, to partially fund the clinical development of other
clinical stage product candidates (including MM-398 for
indications other than pancreatic cancer), to fund pre-clinical
and research and development efforts and for other general
corporate purposes.

The Notes will bear interest at a rate of 4.50 percent per year,
payable semiannually on January 15 and July 15 of each year,
beginning Jan. 15, 2014.  The Notes will mature on July 15, 2020.
The Notes will be convertible, under certain circumstances and
during certain periods, at the option of the holder, based on an
initial conversion rate of 160.0000 shares of common stock per
$1,000 principal amount of Notes, which is equivalent to an
initial conversion price of $6.25 per share of common stock,
subject to adjustment in certain circumstances.  The initial
conversion price represents a conversion premium of 25 percent
over the public offering price in the common stock offering.
Following certain corporate events that occur prior to the
maturity date, Merrimack will increase the conversion rate for a
holder who elects to convert its Notes in connection with such a
corporate event in certain circumstances.  Upon any conversion of
the Notes that occurs while Merrimack's indebtedness to Hercules
Technology Growth Capital, Inc., under the Loan and Security
Agreement dated Nov. 8, 2012, between Merrimack and Hercules,
remains outstanding, the Notes will be settled in shares of
Merrimack's common stock.  Following the repayment and
satisfaction in full of Merrimack's obligations to Hercules under
the Loan and Security Agreement, upon any conversion of the Notes
the Notes may be settled, at Merrimack's election, in cash, shares
of Merrimack's common stock or a combination of cash and shares of
Merrimack's common stock.

J. P. Morgan Securities LLC and BofA Merrill Lynch are acting as
joint book-running managers of these proposed offerings.  Cowen
and Company, LLC, is acting as lead manager of the proposed common
stock offering and co-manager of the proposed Notes offering.
Oppenheimer & Co. Inc., Guggenheim Securities, LLC, and Brean
Capital, LLC, are acting as co-managers of the proposed common
stock offering.

Merrimack expects to close these offerings on or about July 17,
2013, and each closing is subject to satisfaction of customary
closing conditions.

structure with all of the Company's issued and outstanding equity
interests being cancelled and new units of the Company being
issued to the plan sponsors who, together with "exit" lenders will
finance the Company's anticipated working capital needs.

The Plan Sponsors will commit to invest an aggregate capital
commitment of up to $3,000,000, of which $2,000,000 will be
invested as of the Effective Date, and in exchange will receive
100% of the New Equity Units issued by the Company.  Existing
Equity Interests of the Debtor will be cancelled.  Second Lien
Claims and General Unsecured Claims are impaired, but Holders of
such claims will receive their pro rata portion of cash and notes
on account of those claims.  Importantly, the proposed debt and
equity restructuring pursuant to the proposed Plan will enhance
the Debtor's liquidity and reduce its leverage.

Under the Plan, Holders of Allowed Class 4 General Unsecured
Claims will receive as follows:

   * its pro rata share of the proceeds of $2 million to be paid
     by the Reorganized Debtor on the Effective Date, payable as
     follows:

        -- $500,000 cash distribution on the Effective Date;

        -- an amount equal to one third of the remaining principal
           amount on each of the next three anniversaries of the
           Effective Date thereafter; and

   * its pro rata share of the proceeds in an aggregate amount
     equal to 5% of the net proceeds over $30 million from a sale
     of the Company,  payable if and only if the Reorganized
     Company is sold for more than $30 million within three years
     of the Effective Date.

NATIONAL ENVELOPE: Signs Up Support for $68MM DIP, Sale Plan
------------------------------------------------------------
Jamie Santo of BankruptcyLaw360 reported that private-equity owned
NE Opco Inc., which does business as National Envelope, told a
Delaware bankruptcy judge it had reached a global settlement that
paves the way for final approval of its $67.5 million debtor-in-
possession financing and smooths its path toward a sale.

According to the report, National Envelope attorney John H. Knight
announced the agreement at a hearing in Wilmington, saying the
deal negotiated between the debtors, the DIP lender and secured
and unsecured creditors puts all the key parties on the same page.

                    About National Envelope

National Envelope is the largest privately-help manufacturer of
envelopes in North America.  Headquartered in Frisco, Texas,
National Envelope has eight plants and 15 percent of the envelope
market.  Revenue of $427 million in 2012 resulted in a $60.1
million net loss, continuing an unbroken string of losses since
2007.

NE OPCO, Inc., doing business as National Envelope, along with
affiliate NEV Credit Holdings, Inc., filed petitions seeking
relief under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code (Bankr. D. Del.
Lead Case No. 13-11483) on June 10, 2013.

The company disclosed liabilities including $148.4 million in
secured debt, with $37.5 million owing on a revolving credit and
$15.6 million on a secured term loan.  There is a $55.7 million
second-lien debt 82 percent held by a Gores Group LLC affiliate.

National Envelope, then known as NEC Holdings Corp., first sought
Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case No. 10-11890) on
June 10, 2010.  The business was bought by Gores Group LLC for
$208 million in a bankruptcy sale.

National Envelope, through NE OPCO, has returned to bankruptcy to
pursue a plan of reorganization or sell the assets as a going
concern via 11 U.S.C. Sec. 363.  The Debtor plans to facilitate a
sale of the business with publicly traded competitor Cenveo Inc.

In the new Chapter 11 case, the company has tapped the law firm
Richards, Layton & Finger as counsel, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP
as financial adviser, and Epiq Bankruptcy Solutions as claims and
notice agent.

The Gores Group is represented by Weil, Gotshal and Manges LLP and
Lowenstein Landler LLP.  Salus Capital Partners, the DIP agent, is
represented by Choate, Hall & Stewart LLP and Morris Nichols Arsht
& Tunnell LLP.   Wells Fargo Capital Finance, LLC, the prepetition
senior agent, is represented by Goldberg Kohn Ltd and DLA Piper.


NATIONAL SURGICAL: S&P Assigns 'B' Rating to $187.5MM Sr. Facility
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Rating Services said it affirmed its 'B'
corporate credit rating on National Surgical Hospitals Inc.  At
the same time, S&P assigned a 'B' issue-level rating to on the
company's proposed $187.5 million senior secured credit facility
with a recovery rating of '3', indicating S&P's expectation for
meaningful (50%-70%) recovery in the event of a payment default.

"The ratings on National Surgical reflect its "weak" business risk
profile and "highly leveraged" financial risk profile.  Third-
party reimbursement risk is a key credit consideration," said
credit analyst John Bluemke.  "About 28% of its revenues are from
Medicare and Medicaid, which is similar to competitors AmSurg
(25%) and Symbion's (31%) levels, though National Surgical's
government pay as a percentage of revenue is somewhat higher than
United Surgical's 20%.  Medicare rates for outpatient surgery
centers increased 1.2% and 0.6% (before sequestration) for the
2012 and 2013 calendar years and the preliminary physician fee
schedule proposes a 3.5% increase for ambulatory surgery centers
in 2014."  Commercial reimbursement rates have increased
moderately.  With two-thirds of the company's operations
consisting of surgical hospitals (generally, higher acuity per
case), year-to-date outpatient revenue per case was up more than
10% in the first quarter of 2013.  At the same time, case volumes
declined by approximately 1.5%, reflecting the continued focus on
higher acuity cases.

S&P's stable rating outlook reflects its expectation that
operating trends will improve only modestly, driven by the
continued shift towards higher acuity cases.  However, any
potential EBITDA expansion will only modestly impact the company's
high adjusted leverage due to sponsor preferred equity.

                          UPSIDE SCENARIO

S&P views an upgrade as unlikely in the near term because of
National Surgical's significant debt leverage.  An upgrade would
likely require either a greater than 50% improvement in EBITDA or
reduction in debt, such that leverage would decline to below 5x
from over 10x.  This would require nearly $300 million of debt
reduction or nearly $60 million of EBITDA expansion.

                         DOWNSIDE SCENARIO

S&P could lower its rating if liquidity becomes strained to the
point that bank loan covenant cushions fell below 10%, and S&P
believed that the company would not be able to amend them.  This
could occur with a 100-basis-point decline in margin possibly
because of case volume declines or an unfavorable case mix shift.
Separately, S&P believes that if operating trends were
persistently negative because of high level of physician
departures, it would be less likely that banks would amend
covenants.


NAVISTAR INTERNATIONAL: GAMCO Held 6.5% Equity Stake at July 11
---------------------------------------------------------------
In an amended Schedule 13D filing with the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission, GAMCO Asset Management, Inc., and its
affiliates disclosed that, as of July 11, 2013, they beneficially
owned 5,207,893 shares of common stock of Navistar International
Corporation representing 6.48 percent of the shares outstanding.
GAMCO Asset previously reported beneficial ownership of
4,256,461 common shares or a 6.20 percent equity stake as of
Oct. 25, 2012.  A copy of the amended regulatory filing is
available for free at http://is.gd/Qbsk4t

                   About Navistar International

Navistar International Corporation (NYSE: NAV) --
http://www.Navistar.com/-- is a holding company whose
subsidiaries and affiliates subsidiaries produce International(R)
brand commercial and military trucks, MaxxForce(R) brand diesel
engines, IC Bus(TM) brand school and commercial buses, Monaco RV
brands of recreational vehicles, and Workhorse(R) brand chassis
for motor homes and step vans.  It also is a private-label
designer and manufacturer of diesel engines for the pickup truck,
van and SUV markets.  The Company also provides truck and diesel
engine parts and service.  Another affiliate offers financing
services.

Navistar incurred a net loss attributable to the Company of $3.01
billion for the year ended Oct. 31, 2012, compared with net income
attributable to the Company of $1.72 billion during the prior
year.  As of April 30, 2013, the Company had $8.72 billion in
total assets, $12.36 billion in total liabilities and a $3.64
billion total stockholders' deficit.

                          *     *     *

In the Aug. 3, 2012, edition of the TCR, Moody's Investors Service
lowered Navistar International Corporation's Corporate Family
Rating (CFR), Probability of Default Rating (PDR), and senior note
rating to B2 from B1.  The downgrade of Navistar's ratings
reflects the significant challenges the company will face during
the next eighteen months in re-establishing the profitability and
competitiveness of its US and Canadian truck operations in light
of the failure to achieve EPA certification of its EGR emissions
technology, the significant reductions in military revenues and
substantially higher engine warranty reserves.

As reported by the TCR on June 19, 2013, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services said it lowered its long-term corporate credit rating on
Illinois-based truckmaker Navistar International Corp. (NAV) to
'B-' from 'B'.  The rating downgrades reflect S&P's negative
reassessment of NAV's business risk profile to "vulnerable" from
"weak".

As reported by the TCR on Jan. 24, 2013, Fitch Ratings has
affirmed the Issuer Default Ratings (IDR) for Navistar
International Corporation and Navistar Financial Corporation at
'CCC' and removed the Negative Outlook on the ratings.  The
removal reflects Fitch's view that immediate concerns about
liquidity have lessened, although liquidity remains an important
rating consideration as NAV implements its selective catalytic
reduction (SCR) engine strategy. Other rating concerns are already
incorporated in the 'CCC' rating.


NEW ENERGY: Hearing Today to Approve Plan Outline
-------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Indiana
will convene a hearing on July 16, 2013, at 10:30 a.m., to
consider the adequacy of information in the Disclosure Statement
explaining the Chapter 11 Plan proposed by New Energy Corp., and
the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors.

The Plan of Liquidation dated June 6, 2013, will be funded through
the collection and liquidation of the remaining assets of the
Debtor into cash.  The Plan also creates a Liquidating Trust.  The
Debtor's estate will contribute the remaining assets to the
Liquidating Trust for the benefit of creditors of the Debtor.

The Plan also incorporates a settlement which resulted from
negotiations between and among the Debtor and certain key creditor
constituents in the case, including the Committee and the Debtor's
prepetition senior lender, the U.S. Department of Energy.

Under the terms of the Plan Settlement, the Prepetition Senior
Lender and the Prepetition Junior Lenders will provide cash, in an
amount not to exceed $75,000, to fund the Liquidating Trust and
the Prepetition Junior Lenders will reduce their pro rata share of
the proceeds of the remaining assets.

NICHOLAS HOLDINGS: Court Issues Opinion on Chapter 7 Conversion
---------------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Stephen Raslavich entered an Opinion in support
of his oral bench ruling and order dated May 15, 2013, for the
conversion of the bankruptcy case of Nicholas Holdings, Inc. into
a Chapter 7 proceeding.

The U.S. Trustee filed the Motion to Convert or Dismiss the case,
complaining of the Debtor's failure to file monthly operating
reports and failure to pay quarterly fees.  The operating reports
were subsequently filed, but only the night before the May 15
continued hearing on the Motion to Convert.

The Bankruptcy Court noted that the contents of the operating
reports were incomplete and appeared hastily thrown together
Moreover, Judge Raslavich said, there is highly probative evidence
of defalcation.  The Debtor's unexplained use of its DIP account
to buy an array of items which appear unrelated to the debtor's
business (e.g., Best Buy, WAWA, plane tickets) is gross
mismanagement of the highest order, the judge opined.

Considering the record evidence, Judge Raslavich concluded,
without hesitancy, that it would clearly be in the best interests
of the creditors of the estate if the Debtor were removed from
possession and the case converted to Chapter 7.

Nicholas Holdings, Inc., filed a Chapter 11 petition on Aug. 29,
2012 (Bankr. E.D.Pa., Case No. 12-18169).  The Debtor is co-owned
by William and Jill Nicholson.  It owns 26 rental properties and
is indebted to 9 different banks.

NMP-GROUP: Bldg at Madison & 33rd Files Ch.11 to Stop Foreclosure
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that NMP-Group LLC, the owner of 21 East 33rd Street in
Manhattan, filed a petition for Chapter 11 protection (Bankr.
S.D.N.Y. Case No. 13-bk-12269) on July 10 in New York to prevent a
foreclosure sale to take place later in the day.

According to the report, the property was acquired to be
redeveloped for retail and condominium units.  The mortgage is
$51.6 million.  The property is worth $68 million, according to
the owner.  The property is also known as 172-179 Madison Ave.


NORTEL NETWORKS: Fees to Be Reviewed by Court-Appointed Examiner
----------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that professionals working for Nortel Networks Inc. and
its committees will now have their fees reviewed by a court
appointed fee examiner.

According to the report, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Kevin Gross in
Delaware named Master Sidlow & Associates PC to review fee
requests before they are approved by the court.  Master Sidlow is
an accounting firm based in Wilmington, Delaware.  The
professionals will still be paid 80 percent of their fees before
approval by the court.

The report notes that Master Sidlow will review the thousands of
pages of details supporting monthly fee requests and give Gross an
opinion on whether requested fees comply with bankruptcy law.

The report relates that although Nortel generated $9 million from
liquidation of assets, a dispute over allocation is preventing
distributions to creditors.  Judge Gross previously said the
allocation dispute is keeping the case "tied up in knots seemingly
forever."

The report discloses that mediation failed to resolve the
allocation dispute, prompting Judge Gross and the court in Canada
to schedule trials next year on how to divide proceeds among
creditors in the U.S., Canada, and Europe.

On Jan. 14, 2009, Nortel Networks Inc.'s ultimate corporate parent
Nortel Networks Corporation, NNI's direct corporate parent Nortel
Networks Limited and certain of their Canadian affiliates
commenced a proceeding with the Ontario Superior Court of Justice
under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act (Canada) seeking
relief from their creditors.  Ernst & Young was appointed to serve
as monitor and foreign representative of the Canadian Nortel
Group.  That same day, the Monitor sought recognition of the CCAA
Proceedings in U.S. Bankruptcy Court (Bankr. D. Del. Case No.
09-10164) under Chapter 15 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.

That same day, NNI and certain of its affiliated U.S. entities
filed voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Code (Bankr. D. Del. Case No. 09-10138).

In addition, the High Court of England and Wales placed 19 of
NNI's European affiliates into administration under the control of
individuals from Ernst & Young LLP.  Other Nortel affiliates have
commenced and in the future may commence additional creditor

Since the commencement of the various insolvency proceedings,
Nortel has sold its business units and other assets to various
purchasers.  Nortel has collected roughly $9 billion for
distribution to creditors.  Of the total, $4.5 billion came from
the sale of Nortel's patent portfolio to Rockstar Bidco, a
consortium consisting of Apple Inc., EMC Corporation,
Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson, Microsoft Corp., Research In
Motion Limited, and Sony Corporation.  The consortium defeated a
$900 million stalking horse bid by Google Inc. at an auction.  The
deal closed in July 2011.

Nortel has filed a proposed plan of liquidation in the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court.  The Plan generally provides for full payment on
secured claims with other distributions going in accordance with
the priorities in bankruptcy law.

Judge Gross and the court in Canada scheduled trials in 2014 on
how to divide proceeds among creditors in the U.S., Canada, and
Europe.


NORTH STAR CHARTERS: S&P Cuts Rating on 2009A, 2009B Bonds to C
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its long-term ratings
to 'C' from 'CCC-' on the Idaho Housing & Finance Assn.'s
nonprofit facilities revenue bonds series 2009A and series 2009B
(taxable), both issued for the North Star Charter School Inc.
project.  S&P removed the ratings from CreditWatch and assigned a
negative outlook.

"The downgrade and negative outlook reflect our view of the
likelihood of a default during the next year," said Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Robert Dobbins.  "The charter school entered
into a one-year forbearance agreement effective June 6, 2013.
Under that agreement, North Star admitted that they have failed,
or would have failed to make a debt service payment but for the
execution of the forbearance agreement.  In addition, the trustee
permitted the charter school to use the repairs and maintenance
fund and other money set aside to secure the bonds to fund
operations during fiscal 2013," added Mr. Dobbins.

The charter school is not required to fund all of the fiscal 2014
debt service payments from operations.  North Star will only be
required to pay $360,000 in debt service out of operations for the
debt service payment due Jan. 1, 2014.  The remaining balance for
the Jan. 1, 2014 scheduled debt service payment will be delayed
until the expiration of the forbearance agreement, at which time
the remaining originally scheduled debt service amount and
repayment of the other money forwarded by the trustee will become
due.  It is S&P's understanding that a payment default has not yet
occurred.


OCALA FUNDING: Consummates Confirmed Chapter 11 Plan
----------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Ocala Funding LLC, a subsidiary of previously
bankrupt Taylor Bean & Whitaker Mortgage Corp., implemented the
Chapter 11 plan on July 1 that the bankruptcy court in
Jacksonville, Florida, formally approved with a June 20
confirmation order.

According to the report, Ocala filed a reorganization plan in
February to implement an agreement reached before bankruptcy
with holders of almost all of Ocala's $1.5 billion in secured and
$800 million in unsecured claims.  The plan creates a trust to
prosecute lawsuits on behalf of creditors with more than
$2.5 billion in claims.

                        About Ocala Funding

Orange, Florida-based Ocala Funding, LLC, a funding vehicle once
controlled by mortgage lender Taylor Bean & Whitaker Mortgage
Corp., filed a Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. M.D. Fla. Case No.
12-04524) in Jacksonville on July 10, 2012.

Ocala Funding used to be the largest originator and servicer of
residential loans.  Ocala was created by Taylor Bean to purchase
loans originated by TBW and selling the loans to third parties,
Freddie Mac.  In furtherance of this structure Ocala raised money
from noteholders Deutsche Bank AG and BNP Paribas Mortgage Corp.
and other financial institutions, as secured lenders through sales
of asset-backed commercial paper.  Ocala disclosed $1,747,749,787
in assets and $2,650,569,181 in liabilities as of the Chapter 11
filing.

Taylor Bean was forced to file for Chapter 11 relief (Bankr. M.D.
Fla. Case No. 09-07047) on Aug. 24, 2009, amid allegations of
fraud by Taylor Bean's former CEO Lee Farkas and other employees.
Mr. Farkas is now serving a 30-year prison term for 14 counts of
conspiracy and fraud for being the mastermind of a $2.9 billion
bank fraud.  Mr. Farkas allegedly directed the sale of more than
$1.5 billion in fake mortgage assets to Colonial Bank and
misappropriated more than $1.5 billion from Ocala.  TBW's
bankruptcy also caused the demise of Colonial Bank, which for
years was TBW's primary bank.

TBW and its joint debtor-affiliates confirmed their Second Amended
Joint Plan of Liquidation on July 21, 2011, and the TBW Plan
became effective on Aug. 10, 2011.  The TBW Plan established the
TBW Plan Trust to marshal and distribute all remaining assets of
TBW.

Neil F. Lauria, as CRO for TBW and trustee of the TBW Plan Trust,
signed the Chapter 11 petition of Ocala.

Ocala holds 252 mortgage loans with an unpaid balance of $42.3
million as of May 31, 2012.  The Debtor also holds five "real
estate owned" properties resulting from foreclosures.  The Debtor
also holds $22.4 million in proceeds of mortgage loans previously
owned by it that are on deposit in an account in the Debtor's name
at Regions Bank.  It also has an interest in $75 million in cash,
consisting of proceeds of mortgage loans previously owned by the
Debtor, that are in an account maintained by Bank of America, N.A.
as prepetition indenture trustee for the benefit of the
Noteholders.  The Debtor also holds a claim in the current amount
of $1.6 billion against the estate of TBW.

The largest unsecured creditors include the Federal Deposit
Insurance Corp., owed $898,873,958; and Cadwalader, Wickersham &
Taft LLP, owed $1,632,385.

Judge Jerry A. Funk presides over Ocala's case.  Proskauer Rose
LLP and Stichter, Riedel, Blain & Prosser, serve as Ocala's
counsel.  Neil F. Lauria at Navigant Capital Advisors, LLC, serves
as the Debtor's Chief Restructuring Officer.

The Debtors have signed a deal to sell the business to Radiation
Therapy Services Holdings Inc. for $125 million, absent higher and
better offers. RTS's offer comprises $42.5 million in cash (plus
covering certain expenses and subject to certain working capital
adjustments) and up to $82.5 million in assumed debt.  Secured
noteholders are supporting the RTS deal.

Millstein & Co., Kirkland & Ellis LLP, Alvarez & Marsal and
Deloitte advised Radiation Therapy in connection with the
transaction.

Promptly before the bankruptcy filing, the Debtors entered into a
restructuring support agreement with the members of an ad hoc
committee of its secured notes, constituting 100% of the lenders
under the first lien term loan credit agreement and approximately
73% of the secured notes, pursuant to which they have agreed to
support a stand-alone restructuring of the Debtors, subject to an
auction process for a sale of substantially all of the Debtors'
assets or the equity of the reorganized Debtors pursuant to a
chapter 11 plan.


ORCHARD SUPPLY: Committee Says $176-Mil. Loan Not Needed
--------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that in the opinion of the official creditors' committee
of Orchard Supply Hardware Stores Corp., the company has positive
cash flow, "significant unencumbered assets," and no need for
$176 million in secured loans to finance the liquidating
Chapter 11 case.

According to the report, the committee said in a court filing that
the 75-day loan will cost about $6.5 million in interest and fees,
or 29 percent of what the chain of 91 hardware stores expects to
draw.  The bankruptcy court in Delaware will hold a hearing on
July 15 to consider approval of the loan.

The report notes that the creditors point out how Orchard's
subsidiary OSH Properties LLC, the owner of some of the real
estate, isn't liable to existing secured lenders.  The committee
doesn't want liens placed on OSH's property to ensure there will
be a "sizeable distribution to unsecured creditors."  The
committee contends that the DIP loan is a device to "shore up" the
lenders' pre-bankruptcy collateral, "all at the expense of
unsecured creditors."

According to the report, the committee calculates that Orchard at
most will need $10.2 million in incremental cash during the term
of the loan, not $58 million.  The panel says it "defies belief"
to say that there is no lender willing to lend $10.2 million on a
short-term revolving credit.

San Jose, Calif.-based Orchard Supply Hardware Stores Corporation
operates neighborhood hardware and garden stores focused on paint,

restructuring of the company's balance sheet and a sale of its
assets for $205 million in cash to Lowe's Companies, Inc., absent
higher and better offers.  In addition to the $205 million cash,
Lowe's has agreed to assume payables owed to nearly all of
Orchard's supplier partners.

Orchard's business goes up for auction on Aug. 14.  Assuming no
bidding, competitor Lowe's Cos. will buy 60 stores for $205
million under a contract signed before bankruptcy.

PMI GROUP: Justice Department Raises Solyndra Objections
--------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that the Tax Division of the U.S. Justice Department is a
sleeping giant that awakened to make law in two bankruptcy
reorganizations.

According to the report, after the reorganization plan for former
hospital operator LifeCare Holdings Inc. was approved, the Justice
Department filed an appeal to block a method of getting recoveries
for unsecured creditors when creditors with higher priorities,
such as the government, receive nothing.

The report notes that last week, the Justice Department opened a
second front to be fought at the July 18 confirmation hearing on
approval of the Chapter 11 plan for PMI Group Inc., the owner of a
mortgage insurance company taken over by regulators.  In PMI's
case, the government is attacking from two directions, by the
Justice Department and by the U.S. Trustee, the department's
bankruptcy watchdog.  The government said PMI hasn't conducted
business since the advent of the bankruptcy and has "no assets,
employees, or business prospects."  The entire purpose of PMI's
Chapter 11 plan is to preserve the use of "substantial tax
attributes" by attracting capital "to shield $2.4 billion of
taxable income that would otherwise be subject to a 35 percent
corporate tax rate," according to the U.S.

The report relates that PMI entered Chapter 11 with $165 million
in cash, which has grown to $200 million.  Almost all will be
distributed to creditors, throwing off a 29 percent recovery for
holders of $691 million in senior unsecured notes.  For general
unsecured creditors with $6.3 million to $10.3 million in claims,
the recovery is a projected 26 percent to 27 percent.  The U.S.
Trustee contended that the plan is a liquidation whereby PMI isn't
entitled to eradicate debt under Section 1141(d)(3) of the
Bankruptcy Code.  That section is designed, according to the
government, "to prevent trafficking in corporate shells."

The report says that the Tax Division contended that the plan
violates Section 1129(d) of the Bankruptcy Code because the
"principal purpose is the avoidance of taxes."  The PMI case is
the second time around for the government on this question.  The
department appealed from approval of the Chapter 11 plan for
former solar-panel maker Solyndra LLC, contending the primary
purpose was tax avoidance by preserving tax losses when there was
no ongoing business.  The government dropped the appeal in
December when the bankruptcy and district courts both denied stays
pending appeal.

The report discloses that in the LifeCare Holdings Inc.
reorganization, the Justice Department is mounting an appeal on
behalf of the Internal Revenue Service.  The government contended
LifeCare creditors used a concept known as gifting to direct $3.5
million to unsecured creditors, bypassing bankruptcy priorities
and leaving nothing for the government on its $24 million tax
claim that otherwise would come ahead of general creditors.

PRO-PAC INC: 7th Cir. Flips Ruling Against WOW's Tort Liability
---------------------------------------------------------------
Pro-Pac, Inc. was a packaging business that filed for Chapter 11
bankruptcy in 2006.  Pro-Pac then filed an adversary proceeding
against WOW Logistics Co., a logistics service provider, for
aiding and abetting a Pro-Pac employee's breach of fiduciary duty.
The bankruptcy court found that WOW had indeed aided and abetted
the Pro-Pac employee, for which tort the court attempted to
calculate the damages.  But the bankruptcy court instead thought
that its award to Pro-Pac had to rest on an independent unjust
enrichment claim.  On appeal, the district court ordered the
bankruptcy court to dismiss the case because the unjust-enrichment
argument had been introduced too late in the proceeding.  Pro-Pac
appealed from the district court's ruling, arguing that the
district court erred in dismissing the case and seeking
reinstatement of the bankruptcy court's ruling.

In a June 26, 2013 Per Curiam Decision available at
http://is.gd/d5KZZPfrom Leagle.com, the U.S Court of Appeals for
the Seventh Circuit agrees that the district court erred in
dismissing the case, but the bankruptcy court also erred in its
approach to Pro-Pac's damages.  Thus, the Appeals Court reverses
the judgment of the district court with instructions to remand to
the bankruptcy court.  On remand, the bankruptcy court should
reexamine the issues relating to a proper remedy for WOW's tort
liability.

The appeals case is PRO-PAC, INC., Plaintiff-Appellant, v. WOW
LOGISTICS COMPANY, Defendant-Appellee, Case No. 12-2976 (7th Cir.)

RESERVES RESORT: Case Converted to Chapter 7 Amid Mismanagement
---------------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Kevin Gross converted the Chapter 11 cases of
Reserves Resort, Spa & Country Club LLC and Abraham P. Korotki,
saying the "Debtors are plagued by mismanagement."

"The Court's decision to convert these cases is in no small
measure the result of Mr. Korotki's conduct. He showed an absence
of respect for Chapter 11's requirements by borrowing funds
without the Court's approval and treating income as his own rather
than accounting for such income and depositing it in the proper
debtor-in-possession account. Additionally, Mr. Korotki's
testimony at the [June 12] Hearing troubled the Court.  As an
attorney and sophisticated businessman, Mr. Korotki's testimony
was evasive and non-responsive to questions. The Court concluded
that Mr. Korotki was not a credible witness. The significance of
the Court's conclusion that Mr. Korotki is not credible is that it
supports the conclusion that Mr. Korotki cannot be trusted to
investigate let alone pursue potential causes of action."

Mr. Korotki is the sole member and manager of entities that
involve a real estate development in Sussex County, Delaware,
known as "The Reserves Resort, Spa and Country Club".  The
entities include: The Reserves Development Corporation; Reserves
Development LLC; Reserves Resort, Spa and Country Club LLC; The
Reserves Management Corporation; and Reserves Management LLC. Mr.
Korotki formerly also controlled STL Development Corporation and
ST2K, LLC.

Several creditors and the Office of the United States Trustee
moved to convert the cases.

A copy of the Court's July 12, 2013 Memorandum Opinion is
available at http://is.gd/HZrXfMfrom Leagle.com.

Ventnor, New Jersey-based Reserves Resort, Spa & Country Club LLC
and Abraham P. Korotki filed for Chapter 11 (Bankr. D. Del. Case
Nos. 12-13316 and 12-13317) on Dec. 10, 2012.  Judge Kevin Gross
oversees the case.  Adam Hiller, Esq. -- ahiller@hillerarban.com

petition, Reserves Resort estimated $1 million to $10 million in
both assets and debts.  A list of the 12 unsecured creditors is

The petition was signed by Abraham Korotki, manager/member.

Immediately upon filing the cases, the Debtors filed a joint plan
and disclosure statement.  The U.S. Trustee objected to the
Disclosure Statement and the Debtors have not pursued its
approval.


RESIDENTIAL CAPITAL: Abandoning 68 Acres of Land Near Jacksonville
------------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Residential Capital LLC is walking away from
ownership of 68 acres of raw land near Jacksonville, Florida,
assuming the bankruptcy court in New York gives approval at a July
26 hearing.

According to the report, the land is owned by a unit of ResCap's
bankrupt affiliate DOA Holding Properties LLC, which invested in
residential housing developments.  The property is "unmarketable,"
ResCap said in a court filing.  The public authority responsible
for infrastructure development obtained a $6 million judgment
against the property on account of unpaid assessments, akin to
taxes.  The debt can only be collected by foreclosing on the
property and isn't an obligation to be paid under ResCap's pending
Chapter 11 plan.

The report notes that ResCap is asking the court for authority to
abandon the property, which would have the effect of allowing the
development authority to foreclose and take title.  There's also
$1.8 million in property taxes owing on the land.  The property
was intended to be part of a 1,313-acre master planned community.

The report relates that the disclosure statement explaining
ResCap's reorganization plan comes up for approval on Aug. 21 in
bankruptcy court.  Junior secured creditors are being told they
stand to recover 71.4 percent to 77.1 percent on their $2.223
billion in claims, in large part due to the settlement where
ResCap's parent Ally Financial Inc. will pay $2.1 billion in
return for a release of claims.  ResCap's $2.147 billion in
general unsecured claims are slated for a distribution of 36.3
percent, according to the disclosure statement.  Unsecured
creditors with $2 billion in claims against the so-called GMACM
companies are in line for 30.1 percent.

ResCap, one of the country's largest mortgage originators and

"continuing industry challenges, rising litigation costs and
claims, and regulatory uncertainty," according to a company
statement.

ROGERS BANCSHARES: Section 341(a) Meeting Set on August 8
---------------------------------------------------------
A meeting of creditors in the bankruptcy case of Rogers Bancshares
Inc. will be held on Aug. 8, 2013, at 1:00 p.m. at U.S. Trustee's
Office Meeting Room.

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

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

Rogers filed for Chapter 11 relief (Bankr. E.D. Ark. Case No. 13-
bk-13838) on July 5 in Little Rock.  Rogers owes $41.3 million on
three issues of junior subordinated debentures and $39.6 million
on four issues of preferred stock, as reported by the TCR on
July 10, 2013.


SAN BERNARDINO: Calpers Wants Tax Suit Dismissed
------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that the California Public Employees' Retirement System
joined the California tax and finance departments in urging the
bankruptcy judge to dismiss a lawsuit begun in March when San
Bernardino, California, sued to block the withholding of sales and
property taxes to recover $15 million owing by a city
redevelopment agency.

According to the report Calpers, California's public employees'
retirement fund, argues that the city wants the bankruptcy court
to violate the U.S. Constitution and "interfere with the
relationship between the state and one of its municipal
creatures."  Bankruptcy Judge Meredith A. Jury is set to hear
arguments on Aug. 22.  If the tax payments were withheld, San
Bernardino said city services would halt inside of three months.

The report notes that the city's suit was based on the idea that
withholding tax revenue would constitute a violation of the so-
called automatic bankruptcy stay prohibiting creditors from
recovering past-due debt.  So far, the state has withheld no
taxes.  Calpers argue that a federal bankruptcy court cannot
"enjoin the state of California from exercising an essential
sovereign function." There is no waiver of the state's sovereign
immunity guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, Calpers says.

The report relates that according to Calpers, the city isn't
entitled to sue because any action the state might take is "purely
speculative and hypothetical."  Consequently, there is no "case or
controversy" required by the Constitution before a lawsuit can be
filed.  The state agencies already filed papers seeking dismissal
of the suit.  Calpers was allowed by Judge Jury to join the suit
in June.  She will hold a hearing later in August to determine if
the city is eligible for municipal bankruptcy in Chapter 9.

The report discloses that Calpers and the San Bernardino Public
Employees Association are the only creditors urging Jury to
dismiss the bankruptcy entirely.  Bond insurer Ambac Assurance Co.
and a bondholder sided with the city in urging the judge to
overrule objections from Calpers and confirm San Bernardino's
eligibility for Chapter 9.

The lawsuit is City of San Bernardino v. State of California
(In re City of San Bernardino), 13-01127, U.S. Bankruptcy Court,
Central District of California (San Bernardino).

                    About San Bernardino, Calif.

San Bernardino, California, filed an emergency petition for
municipal bankruptcy under Chapter 9 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code
(Bankr. C.D. Cal. Case No. 12-28006) on Aug. 1, 2012.  San
Bernardino, a city of about 210,000 residents roughly 65 miles
(104 km) east of Los Angeles, estimated assets and debts of more
than $1 billion in the bare-bones bankruptcy petition.

The city council voted on July 10, 2012, to file for bankruptcy.
The move lets San Bernardino bypass state-required mediation with
creditors and proceed directly to U.S. Bankruptcy Court.

The city is represented that Paul R. Glassman, Esq., at Stradling
Yocca Carlson & Rauth.

San Bernardino joined two other California cities in bankruptcy:
Stockton, an agricultural center of 292,000 east of San Francisco,
and Mammoth Lakes, a mountain resort town of 8,200 south of
Yosemite National Park.


SAN DIEGO HOSPICE: Plan Confirmation Hearing on Sept. 4
-------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that San Diego Hospice & Palliative Care Corp. and the
official creditors' committee scheduled a Sept. 4 confirmation
hearing for approval of the Chapter 11 plan they jointly proposed.

According to the report, the bankruptcy court in San Diego
approved disclosure materials, allowing creditors to vote on the
liquidating plan.  Unsecured creditors with claims totaling from
$12 million to $16 million are being told their recovery may range
from nothing to 43 percent.

The report notes that the principal asset, an unused 24-bed
hospice facility, is in process of being sold to Scripps Health
for $16.6 million.  Although the court approved the sale in April,
the transfer can't be completed until California regulators give
approval.

The report notes that the estimated unsecured claims don't include
claims resulting from termination of contracts and leases nor
claims of employees for mass firings.  The disclosure statement
tells unsecured creditors their recovery depends on success in
lawsuits and in reducing claims.  The disclosure statement
estimates recoveries in lawsuits from nothing to $3 million.

             About San Diego Hospice & Palliative Care

San Diego Hospice & Palliative Care Corporation filed a Chapter 11
petition (Bankr. S.D. Cal. Case No. 13-01179) in San Diego on
Feb. 4, 2013.  The Debtor is the operator of the San Diego Hospice
and The Institute for Palliative Medicine, one of the largest
community-owned, not-for-profit hospices in the country.

The Debtor scheduled $20,369,007 in total assets and $14,888,058
in total liabilities.

Even before the bankruptcy filing, the Debtor has been under a
federal investigation, focusing whether it allowed patients to
stay in the program even when their diagnosis changed.  The Debtor
said that it will meet with government agencies to address their
concerns, explore partnerships with other health care
organizations, and work to restructure and resize San Diego
Hospice.  The Debtor said it has encouraged Scripps Health, the
region's largest provider of health care services, to enter the
hospice business.

Procopio, Cory, Hargreaves & Savitch LLP serves as counsel to the

SUPERTEL HOSPITALITY: Gets Minimum Bid Price Non-Compliance Notice
------------------------------------------------------------------
Supertel Hospitality, Inc., a real estate investment trust (REIT)
which owns 75 hotels in 21 states, on July 15 disclosed that it
received a notification letter from The Nasdaq Stock Market on
July 9, 2013 stating that for the previous 30 consecutive business
days, the bid price of the Company's common stock closed below the
minimum $1.00 per share requirement for continued inclusion on The
Nasdaq Global Market pursuant to Nasdaq Marketplace Rule
5450(a)(1).  The Nasdaq letter has no immediate effect on the
listing of the Company's common stock.

In accordance with Marketplace Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), Supertel will
be provided with a grace period of 180 calendar days, or until
January 7, 2014, to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price
Rule.  As previously disclosed, the Company's shareholders have
authorized the Company's Board of Directors to implement, at the
Board's discretion, a reverse split of the Company's common stock
at a reverse split ratio ranging from 1-for-4 to 1-for-8 shares of
common stock, as determined by the Board, to regain compliance
with the Minimum Bid Price Rule.

If at any time before January 7, 2014, the bid price of Supertel's
stock closes at $1.00 per share or more for a minimum of 10
consecutive business days, Nasdaq will notify the Company that it
has achieved compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Rule.  If the
Company does not regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Rule
by January 7, 2014, Nasdaq will notify the Company that its common
stock will be delisted from The Nasdaq Global Market.  In the
event the Company receives notice that its common stock is being
delisted from The Nasdaq Global Market, Nasdaq rules permit the
Company to appeal any delisting determination by the Nasdaq staff
to a Nasdaq Hearings Panel. Alternatively, Nasdaq may permit the
Company to transfer its common stock to The Nasdaq Capital Market
if it satisfies the requirements for initial inclusion set forth
in Marketplace Rule 5505, except for the bid price requirement.
If its application for transfer is approved, the Company would
have an additional 180 calendar days to comply with the Minimum
Bid Price Rule in order to remain on The Nasdaq Capital Market.

T3 MOTION: To Seek Review of NYSE Delisting Determination
---------------------------------------------------------
T3 Motion, Inc., received a letter from the NYSE MKT on July 8,
2013, stating that it was denying the Company's appeal and
affirming the decision of the NYSE MKT staff to delist the Company
from the NYSE MKT because of the Company's financial impairment.

T3 Motion previously received a notice from the NYSE MKT LLC
indicating that the Company is not in compliance with certain of
the NYSE MKT continued listing standards.  Specifically, the
letter from the NYSE MKT stated that the Company was not in
compliance with Section 1003(a)(iv) of the NYSE MKT's Company
Guide in that it had sustained losses which were so substantial in
relation to its overall operations or its existing financial
resources or its financial condition had become so impaired that
it appeared questionable, in the opinion of the NYSE MKT, as to
whether the Company would be able to continue operations or meet
its obligations as they mature.

The Company appealed this determination to the NYSE MKT's Listing
Determination Panel which held a hearing on March 4, 2013, and
subsequently decided to defer action until it received a report
from NYSE MKT staff regarding the results of the Company's
operations as of May 15, 2013.  On June 11, 2013, NYSE MKT staff
filed a report concluding that the Company should be delisted and
the Company filed a response on June 13, 2013, requesting
continued listing.

Among the reasons given for this decision, was the determination
that the Company did not meet benchmarks that the Company stated
it was planning to meet at the hearing.  Additionally, the Panel
noted that the Company has approximately $5.3 million in short
term debt falling due in November and December of 2013 and that
the Company does not presently have the ability to pay that debt
when due if called upon to do so.  Although holders have the
ability to convert their debt, the Panel noted that there is no
guarantee that this debt will be converted before it becomes due.

For a 15 day period commencing on July 8, 2013, and on payment of
a $10,000 fee, the Company has the right to request a review of
the Panel's decision by the NYSE MKT's full Committee on
Securities.  The Company plans to request such a review.  However
the Company can provide no assurance that any such review will
result in a favorable determination for the Company and prevent
the Company from being delisted.

Additionally, the letter states that initiating any such review
would not stay the Panel's decision and that the NYSE MKT will
suspend trading in the Company's common stock "as soon as
practicable" in accordance with Section 1204(d) of the NYSE MKT's
Company Guide and will file an application with the SEC to strike
the Company's common stock from listing and registration with the
NYSE MKT when and if authorized, in accordance with Sections
1205(g), 1206(d) and/or 1206(e) of the NYSE MKT's Company Guide.

The Company expects that its common stock will trade on OTC-BB no
later than any official delisting from the Exchange.  The
delisting from the NYSE MKT and transition to the OTC-BB will not
change the Company's obligations to file periodic and other
reports with the SEC under applicable federal securities laws.

                           Director Quits

On July 10, 2013, Mr. Bruce Nelson notified the Company that he
was resigning, effective immediately, from the Company's board of
directors and from his position as Chairman of the Company's audit
committee.  Mr. Nelson stated that his resignation was not the
result of any disagreement with the Company on any matter relating
to its operation and that his departure was necessary in order to
permit him the ability to pursue other business interests.

Mr. Nelson served as the Company's "audit committee financial
expert" as defined by the SEC's rules, and as an independent
director as defined by the SEC's rules and by the NYSE MKT rules.
The Company will need to find another director to serve in these
capacities in order to comply with SEC rules and the NYSE MKT
rules, but cannot provide any guaranties that it will be able to
do so.  Any inability to do so may adversely impact the Company's
efforts to remain listed on the NYSE MKT.

THQ INC: Subsidiaries Opposing Equitable Subordination
------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that when THQ Inc. appears in bankruptcy court on July 16
for confirmation of the liquidating Chapter 11 plan, the primary
dispute surrounds the question of subordinating the $107 million
in claims held by foreign subsidiaries.

According to the report, THQ's sold most of the video game
business to five buyers in January to generate $72 million.  The
liquidating plan will give unsecured creditors as little as 19.9
percent or as much as 51.9 percent on claims ranging between
$143 million and $291.6 million.

The report notes that the validity of subsidiaries' claims is the
swing factor determining how much U.S. creditors receive and how
quickly.  If the European claims are paid in the U.S. bankruptcy,
the unsecured creditors' recovery will be 19.9 percent to 29.6
percent, according to the disclosure statement.  If the European
claims are knocked out, the distribution rises to 31.5 percent to
51.9 percent.

The report relates that THQ believes the foreign subsidiaries are
all solvent and will satisfy their creditors in full, eventually
paying surpluses of $9 million to $14 million to the parent.  The
subsidiaries filed papers this week opposing subordination of
their claims.  They contend that not paying their valid claims
would be an "improper attack on the orderly winding down" of their
businesses.  They say U.S. law doesn't allow subordination absent
inequitable conduct.

The report discloses that THQ believes allowing the subsidiaries'
claims and making distributions to them will only slow down the
eventual recoveries by U.S. creditors.  THQ estimates generating
$94.9 million to $105.2 million and having $58 million to $74
million available for distribution to unsecured creditors.

                           About THQ Inc.

THQ Inc. (NASDAQ: THQI) -- http://www.thq.com/-- was a worldwide
developer and publisher of interactive entertainment software.
The Company developed its products for all popular game systems,
personal computers, wireless devices and the Internet.
Headquartered in Los Angeles, California, THQ sold product through
its network of offices located throughout North America and
Europe.

THQ Inc. and its affiliates sought Chapter 11 protection (Bankr.
D. Del. Lead Case No. 12-13398) on Dec. 19, 2012.  Michael R.
Nestor, M. Blake Cleary and Jaime Luton Chapman at Ypung Conaway
Stargatt & Taylor, LLP; and Oscar Garza at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher
LLP represent the Debtors.  FTI Consulting and Centerview Partners
LLC are the financial advisors.  Kurtzman Carson Consultants is
the claims and notice agent.

Before the bankruptcy, Clearlake signed a contract to buy Agoura
THQ for a price said to be worth $60 million.  After a 22-hour
auction with 10 bidders, the top offers brought a combined $72
million from several buyers who will split up the company. Judge
Walrath approved the sales in January.  Some of the assets didn't
sell, including properties the company said could be worth about
$29 million.

Roberta A. DeAngelis, U.S. Trustee for Region 3, appointed five
persons to serve in the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors.
The Committee tapped Houlihan Lokey Capital as its financial
advisor and investment banker, Landis Rath & Cobb as co-counsel
and Andrews Kurth as counsel.


TIMOTHY BLIXSETH: Involuntary Bankruptcy Is Dismissed Again
-----------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Timothy Blixseth, the former owner of the bankrupt
Yellowstone Mountain Club LLC, now has twice beaten back an
involuntary bankruptcy petition filed against him in April 2011 by
taxing authorities from Montana, California, and Idaho.

According to the report, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Bruce Markell in
Las Vegas dismissed the bankruptcy, saying it should have been
filed in Montana, where Mr. Blixseth lives, not in Nevada, where
his businesses are incorporated.  In the meantime, California and
Idaho backed out, concerned that they would be compelled to pay
Mr. Blixseth's attorneys' fees were the involuntary bankruptcy
denied.

The report notes that on appeal to the Bankruptcy Appellate Panel,
Montana won.  A divided panel on the appellate court reinstated
the involuntary bankruptcy, ruling in a 2-1 opinion that Nevada
was a proper location since Mr. Blixseth's companies were
incorporated in that state.  The case went back to Judge Markell,
who again dismissed the involuntary bankruptcy in a 17-page
opinion on July 10 just as he was leaving the bench to become a
law professor at Florida State University.

The report relates that Judge Markell concluded that Mr. Blixseth
has more than 12 creditors, thus requiring the involuntary
petition to be filed by at least three creditors with undisputed
claims.  Judge Markell concluded that three of four petitioning
creditors had disputed claims and thus were ineligible.  Montana
argued that a creditor is eligible to file for bankruptcy so long
as part of the claim is undisputed.  Judge Markell disagreed.  As
a result of 2005 amendments to Section 303 of the Bankruptcy Code,
Judge Markell ruled that an entire claim must be undisputed to
justify filing an involuntary petition.  He said that the
amendment overruled an earlier opinion saying that the undisputed
portion of a claim is basis for an involuntary petition.

The report discloses that although the petition was dismissed, the
case isn't over so far as Montana is concerned.  After the
bankruptcy was dismissed the first time, Mr. Blixseth filed papers
asking the bankruptcy judge to compel Montana to reimburse him for
$815,000 he spent in fending off bankruptcy.  Mr. Blixseth retains
the right to have the bankruptcy court require the state to
reimburse him for attorneys' fees spent in resisting bankruptcy.
Montana has the right to appeal on the legal question of whether
the undisputed portion of a claim is sufficient.  The danger for
the state is that a loss at the appellate level increases
Mr. Blixseth's attorneys' fees it may be required to reimburse.

TIMOTHY BLIXSETH: Seeks Damages over Montana Bankruptcy Suit
------------------------------------------------------------
Matthew Brown, writing for The Associated Press, reported that
luxury real estate developer Tim Blixseth said he intends to seek
damages against the state of Montana over its failed attempt to
force him into bankruptcy to collect $57 million in alleged back
taxes.

According to the report, a federal judge in Las Vegas threw out
the state's case, saying it did not meet legal requirements under
bankruptcy law.

Blixseth, who resides in Washington state, said the forced
bankruptcy lawsuit against him was filed in bad faith, and that
the state's efforts had been politically-motivated by supporters
of the Yellowstone Club, which went into bankruptcy protection
soon after he gave up control of the private ski and golf resort
in southwestern Montana in 2008, the report related.

"Yesterday's decision paves the way to try to get a little
justice," he said, the report cited.  "That (tax) bill is not due.
It's never been due."

One of his attorneys, Brett Axelrod, said Blixseth will file
paperwork in federal court in Nevada before the end of the month
seeking reimbursement for legal fees and punitive damages, which
Blixseth said could range from $200 million to $600 million, the
report added.

TPF GENERATION: S&P Assigns 'B+' Rating to $425MM 1st Lien Debt
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Rating Services said it assigned its 'B+' rating
and '1' recovery rating to project finance entity TPF Generation
Holdings LLC's (TPF) $425 million first-lien TLB due 2017 and
$30 million revolver due 2017.

The new credit facilities have replaced the $495 million second-
lien TLB ($405 million outstanding as of Sept. 30, 2012) and
$50 million synthetic first-lien letter of credit facility,
essentially maintaining leverage at existing levels.  The stable
outlook reflects a somewhat diverse, operationally sound portfolio
that should be able to earn capacity and energy revenue that
supports the ratings.

TPF's portfolio consists of three natural gas-fired power plants
totaling 1,380 megawatts (MW) in California, West Virginia, and
Virginia.  High Desert is an 830 MW combined-cycle natural gas-
fired power generation plant in the California Independent System
Operator's SP-15 market and Big Sandy (300 MW) and Wolf Hills
(250 MW) are simple-cycle natural gas-fired power generation
plants in the PJM Interconnection (AEP) market, respectively.

The stable outlook reflects a somewhat diverse, operationally
sound portfolio that should be able to earn capacity and energy
revenue that supports the ratings.  Factors that might lead to a
negative outlook or a lower rating are sustained weaker
performance at the plants, or lower-than-expected energy or
capacity revenues that result in DSCRs lower than the 0.7x
(May-Dec. 2013) and 1.4x currently forecast for 2013 and 2014,
respectively, or expectations of refinancing risk above $300 kW.
A positive outlook or higher rating would require financial
performance superior to S&P's expectations on a sustained basis
that leads to expectations of refinancing risk below $250 per kW.
This could be the result of potential upward momentum in energy
prices post-2014 once the carbon trading market develops in
California, or capacity prices as a few more data points for
resource adequacy payments become evident.


TRANSGENOMIC INC: Ernst & Young Replaces McGladrey as Auditors
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Audit Committee, acting on behalf of Transgenomic, Inc.'s
Board of Directors, dismissed McGladrey LLP as the principal
independent accountant of the Company on July 8, 2013.  The former
accountant's reports for the past two fiscal years did not contain
any adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion, and those reports
were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or
accounting principles.  The dismissal was not a result of any
disagreement with the accounting firm.

On July 8, 2013, the Audit Committee appointed Ernst & Young LLP
as the Company's principal independent accountant.  The Company
did not, nor did anyone on its behalf, consult the New Accountant
during the Company's two most recent fiscal years and during the
subsequent interim period prior to the Company's engagement of the
New Accountant regarding the application of accounting principles
to a specified transaction, the type of audit opinion that might
be rendered on the Company's financial statements, any matter
being the subject of a disagreement or "reportable event" or any
other matter described in Item 304(a)(2) of Regulation S-K.

TRINITY BASIN: S&P Lowers Rating on School 2009A Bonds to 'BB+'
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its long-term rating to
'BB+' from 'BBB-' on Tarrant County Cultural Education Facilities
Finance Corp., Texas' series 2009A tax-exempt charter school
education revenue bonds issued for Trinity Basin Preparatory
(TBP).  Standard & Poor's also assigned its 'BB+' long-term rating
to Arlington Higher Education Finance Corp., Texas'
$28.835 million series 2013 tax-exempt charter school education
revenue bonds and $700,000 series 2013B taxable education revenue
bonds, also issued for TBP.  The outlook is stable.

"The rating action reflects our view of TBP's significant increase
in debt with this debt issuance, decrease in unrestricted
liquidity, decline in operating profitability and coverage levels
in fiscal 2012, and moderate competition," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Kevin Holloran.

S&P believes that this debt issuance, combined with TBP's recent
drop in unrestricted liquidity, places TBP under increased
financial constraints and very close to covenant requirements
until TBP's growth and financial projections are met and/or
exceeded.

Bond proceeds of approximately $29.5 million will be used for a
variety of capital projects, including construction of a school
building in Dallas, into which two current facilities will be
consolidated, the purchase of land and renovation of a school
building in northwest Dallas, and purchase of modular buildings
for use at TBP's Fort Worth campus.  Additional proceeds will be
used to refinance TBP's series 2009A bonds (at which time the
rating will be withdrawn) and to fund a debt service reserve and
pay cost of issuance.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's anticipation that TBP will be
financially stressed but stable during the one-year outlook period
that we apply to speculative-grade credits.


TRINITY COAL: Court Clears to Auction Its Assets on July 30
-----------------------------------------------------------
Yogita Patel writing for Dow Jones' DBR Small Cap reports that
Trinity Coal Corp. will auction its assets at the end of the
month, although the coal-mine operator has yet to line up a lead
bidder.

                         About Trinity Coal

Trinity Coal Corp. is a coal mining company that owns coal
deposits located in the Appalachian region of the eastern United
States, specifically, in Breathitt, Floyd, Knott Magoffin, and
Perry Counties in eastern Kentucky and in Boone, Fayette, Mingo,
McDowell and Wyoming Counties in West Virginia.

Trinity's coal mining operations are organized into six distinct
coal mining complexes. Three complexes are located in Kentucky and
are referred to as Prater Branch Resources, Little Elk Mining and
Levisa Fork.  The Kentucky Operations produced compliance and low
sulfur steam coal.  Three complexes are located in West Virginia
and are referred to as Deep Water Resources, North Springs
Resources and Falcon Resources.

Trinity is a wholly owned subsidiary of privately held
multinational conglomerate Essar Global Limited.

Credit Agricole Corporate & Investment Bank, ING Capital LLC and
Natixis, New York Branch filed an involuntary petition for relief
under Chapter 11 against Trinity Coal Corporation and 15
affiliates (Bankr. E.D. Ky. Lead Case No. 13-50364).  The three
entities say they are owed a total of $104 million on account
loans provided to Trinity.

On Feb. 14, 2013, Austin Powder Company, Whayne Supply Company and
Cecil I. Walker Machinery Co. filed an involuntary petition for
relief under Chapter 11 (Bankr. E.D. Ky. Case No. 13-50335)
against Frasure Creek Mining, LLC.  On Feb. 19, 2013, Credit
Agricole, ING Capital and Natixis joined as petitioning creditors.

On March 4, 2013, the Debtors filed their consolidated answer to
involuntary petitions and consent to an order for relief and
reservation of rights, thereby consenting to the entry of an order
for relief in each of their respective Chapter 11 cases.  An order
for relief in each of the Debtors was entered by the Court on
March 4, 2013, which converted the involuntary cases to voluntary
Chapter 11 cases.  Sturgill, Turner, Barker & Moloney, PLLC serves
as the Committee's local counsel.


TURNBERRY/CENTRA: $50MM Vegas Casino Project Suit Kept Alive
------------------------------------------------------------
Kaitlin Ugolik of BankruptcyLaw360 reported that a Florida federal
judge denied a bid by two individuals and affiliated entities to
toss Wilmington Trust NA's effort to recover $50 million it won in
a suit over a now-bankrupt Las Vegas casino project, finding
claims for lack of jurisdiction unconvincing.

According to the report, Wilmington Trust sought to compel Jeffrey
Soffer, Jacquelyn Soffer and several funds related to Turnberry
Residential Limited Partner LP to pay a $50 million judgment
ordered by a New York appeals panel after two years of litigation
over the failure of the project.

The case is Wilmington Trust, National Association v. Soffer et
al., Case No. 1:12-cv-23214 (S.D. Fla.), before Judge Patricia A.
Seitz.


US SILICA: S&P Assigns 'BB-' Rating to $425MM Sr. Secured Facility
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it assigned its 'BB-'
issue-level rating (the same as the corporate credit rating) to
U.S. Silica Co.'s proposed $425 million senior secured credit
facility, which consists of a $50 million revolving credit
facility due 2018 and a $375 million term loan due 2020.  The
recovery rating on the facility is '3', indicating S&P's
expectation for meaningful (50%-70%) recovery in the event of a
payment default.  The company intends to use the proceeds from
this offering to redeem existing indebtedness as well as for
general corporate purposes.

The 'BB-' rating and stable outlook on U.S. Silica reflect the
combination of what S&P considers to be the company's "weak"
business risk and "significant" financial risk.  S&P's view of the
business balances the company's good market position in both its
frac and industrial sand businesses against its small overall size
and our expectation for ongoing volatility in frac sand markets
over the next several years as the industry matures.  S&P's
financial risk assessment incorporates its expectation that the
company will maintain leverage of less than 4x, funds from
operations (FFO) to debt of more than 20%, and adequate liquidity.

S&P expects that U.S. Silica will generate adjusted EBITDA in the
$150 million to $175 million range in 2013 and 2014, resulting in
leverage between 2.5x and 3x and FFO to debt between 20% and 30%.
In addition to debt repayment, the proposed financing will add
about $100 million in cash to the company's balance sheet, which
we expect will be used to further expand the company's terminal
network, increase its frac sand production profile, or for bolt-on
acquisitions in its industrial sand business.

VAUGHAN COMPANY: Court Rejects Suit Against Campbell Estate
-----------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Robert H. Jacobvitz granted the defendants'
Motion for Summary Judgment in the lawsuit, JUDITH A. WAGNER,
Chapter 11 Trustee of the bankruptcy estate of the Vaughan
Company, Realtors, Plaintiff, v. ILAH JONES, WILLIAM CAMPBELL,
individually, WILLIAM CAMPBELL, as Personal Representative of the
ESTATE OF LINDA CAMPBELL, JOHN DOE as Personal representative of
the ESTATE OF LINDA CAMPBELL, and DAVID JONES, Defendants, Adv.
Proc. No. 12-01295 (Bankr. D. N.M.).  This adversary proceeding is
one of many adversary proceedings initiated by the Chapter 11
Trustee seeking to recover payments made by VCR to parties who
invested in VCR's promissory note program. The Trustee asserts
that VCR operated as a Ponzi scheme. She seeks to recover certain
transfers made to the Defendants under several theories, including
avoidance of transfers under the actual fraud and constructive
fraud provisions of 11 U.S.C. Sec. 548 and applicable state law.

In their Motion for Summary Judgment, the Defendants seek
dismissal of any claims under 11 U.S.C. Sec. 544 and N.M.S.A.
Sections 56-10-18 and 19 to recover proceeds they received on
account of Norma Jones' investment in VCR's promissory note
program.  Norma Jones, the mother of several Defendants, began
investing in VCR's note program in 1998.  VCR was later found to
operate as a Ponzi scheme.  Douglas Vaughan and VCR concealed the
ongoing fraud from current and prospective investors of VCR.  At
all relevant times, VCR was insolvent.

                     About Vaughan Company

The Vaughan Company, Realtors, descended into bankruptcy after
Douglas F. Vaughan, the former controlling shareholder, used the
company to run a Ponzi scheme from 1993 until January 2010.  Mr.
Vaughan has entered into a plea agreement with the United States,
admitting guilt to various securities violations.

In March 2010, the Securities and Exchange Commission filed fraud
charges against Mr. Vaughan, a New Mexico realtor, and obtained an
emergency court order to halt his $80 million Ponzi scheme.  The
SEC's complaint, filed in federal court in Albuquerque, alleges
Mr. Vaughan through his company issued promissory notes that he
claimed would generate high fixed returns for investors.  Mr.
Vaughan also used another entity -- Vaughan Capital LLC -- to
solicit investors for different types of real estate-related
investments, such as buying residential properties at distressed
prices.  Mr. Vaughan relied entirely on new money raised from
investors through both companies to fund Vaughan Company's ever-
increasing obligations to note holders.

The SEC also charged both of Mr. Vaughan's companies in the
enforcement action.  Neither Mr. Vaughan nor his companies are
registered with the SEC to offer securities under the federal
securities laws.

The Vaughan Company Realtors filed for Chapter 11 protection on
Feb. 22, 2010 (Bankr. N.M. Case No. 10-10759).  George D. Giddens,
Jr., Esq., represents the Debtor in its restructuring efforts.
The Company estimated both assets and debts of between $1 million
and $10 million.  Judith A. Wagner was appointed as Chapter 11
Trustee.

Mr. Vaughan filed a separate Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. D. N.M.
Case No. 10-10763) on Feb. 22, 2010.  The case was converted to a
chapter 7 proceeding on May 20, 2010.  Yvette Gonzales is the duly
appointed trustee of the Chapter 7 estate.

Vermillion, along with its prestigious scientific collaborators,
has diagnostic programs in oncology, hematology, cardiology and

The Company filed for Chapter 11 on March 30, 2009 (Bankr. D. Del.
Case No. 09-11091).  Vermillion's legal advisor in connection with
its successful reorganization efforts wass Paul, Hastings,
Janofsky & Walker LLP.  Vermillion emerged from bankruptcy in
January 2010.  The Plan called for the Company to pay all claims
in full and equity holders to retain control of the Company.

Vermillion incurred a net loss of $7.14 million in 2012, as
compared with a net loss of $17.79 million in 2011.  The Company's
balance sheet at March 31, 2013, showed $6.50 million in total
assets, $4.22 million in total liabilities and $2.27 million in
total stockholders' equity.

BDO USA, LLP, in Austin, Texas, issued a "going concern"
qualification on the consolidated financial statements for the
year ended Dec. 31, 2012, citing recurring losses and negative
cash flows from operations and an accumulated deficit, all of
which raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to
continue as a going concern.


VPR OPERATING: Oil Company Seeks to Auction Assets Next Month
-------------------------------------------------------------
Marie Beaudette writing for Dow Jones' DBR Small Cap reports that
Oil and natural gas company VPR Corp. is asking a bankruptcy judge
for permission to auction its assets next month without having
first reached a deal with a lead bidder to set a threshold
purchase price.

                        About VPR Operating

VPR Operating, LLC, and three related entities, including VPR

and debts of at least $50 million.

Robert W. Jones, Esq., and Brent R. McIlwain, Esq., at Holland &
Knight LLP, serve as the Debtor's counsel.  Judge Craig A.
Gargotta presides over the case.

corporate credit rating to W/S Packaging Holdings Inc.  The
outlook is stable.  In addition, S&P assigned a 'B+' issue-level
rating (one notch above the corporate credit rating) and '2'
recovery rating to its proposed $276 million senior secured credit
facilities based on preliminary terms and conditions.  The
borrower is W/S Packaging Group Inc. and the facility consists of
a $40 million senior secured revolving credit facility maturing in
2018 and $236 million senior secured term loan maturing in 2019.
The '2' recovery rating indicates S&P's expectation for
substantial (70% to 90%) recovery in the event of a payment
default.

The company plans to use the term loan proceeds to refinance
existing debt and cover transaction fees and expenses.  S&P
expects the new $40 million revolving credit facility due 2018 to
be undrawn at close of the transaction.

"The ratings on W/S Packaging reflect our assessment of its
business risk profile as "weak" and its financial risk profile as
"highly leveraged".  S&P assess its management and governance as
fair," said credit analyst Liley Mehta.

The outlook is stable.  The company's stable cash flow generation
and preservation of sufficient liquidity are key factors to
maintain the ratings.  S&P also expects the company will maintain
its very aggressive financial policy and pursue modest-sized
acquisitions and, longer term, shareholder rewards.

S&P could lower the ratings if leverage exceeds its expectations,
liquidity declines meaningfully, or free cash flow generation is
lower than anticipated because of unexpected operating challenges.

"Based on our downside scenario, we could lower the rating if
operating margins weaken by 200 basis points or more or if sales
volumes decline 5% or more from our expectations.  At that point,
we expect that the FFO to total adjusted debt could drop to the
mid- to high-single-digit percentage area and total adjusted debt
to EBITDA would increase toward 7x.  We may also lower the ratings
if unexpected cash outlays or business challenges materially
reduce the company's liquidity position, or if financial policy
decisions result in decreased liquidity or a weaker financial
profile," S&P said.

Given the company's private equity ownership, very aggressive
financial policy, and acquisition-driven growth strategy, S&P
views an upgrade over the next year as unlikely.  S&P expects FFO
to total adjusted debt to remain around 10% to 11%.


WAGNER SQUARE: Chapter 11 Restructuring Closed
----------------------------------------------
The Hon. Laurel M. Isicof of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of Florida on May 7 entered a final decree
closing the Chapter 11 case of Wagner Square LLC, et al.

The effective date of the Debtors' First Amended Plan of
Liquidation, as amended, occurred on March 22, 2013.  Drew M.
Dillworth, the Chapter 11 Trustee, proposed the Plan.

A copy of the Trustee's First Amended Plan of Liquidation is
available at http://bankrupt.com/misc/wagnersquare.doc190.pdf

                        About Wagner Square

On April 30, 2012, an involuntary Chapter 11 petition was filed
against Wagner Square, LLC.  This was followed by an involuntary
Chapter 11 petition against Wagner Square I, LLC, on June 15,
2012.

Debra Sinkle Kolsky Trust filed an involuntary petition against
Wagner Square I, LLC, (Bankr. S.D. Fla. Case No. 12-24697) on
June 15, 2012.  In the involuntary petition, the Petitioning
Creditor indicated that there was a bankruptcy case (No. 12-20659-
LMI) filed on April 30, 2012, against Wagner Square, LLC, an
affiliate of the Debtor, pending before Judge Isicoff.

Harold D. Moorefield, Jr., at Stearns Weaver Miller Weissler
Alhadeff & Sitterson, P.A., in Miami, represents Drew M.
Dillworth, Chapter 11 Trustee, as counsel.

The Debtor's estate was primarily comprised of certain real
property that Wagner Square had acquired from the City of Miami in
2005, for purposes of developing two affordable housing
condominiums and a commercial component.  The development plan,
certain land restrictions and funding for the development were
among the terms agreed upon by the City of Miami and Wagner
Square.  Wagner Square subsequently transferred two of the parcels
of real property to Wagner Square I and a third, non-debtor
entity, Wagner Square III, LLC, with the result that each of those
three entities held title to one of the parcels.


WEST DANIELS: Bankr. Court Confirms Trustee's Exit Plan
-------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge R. Kimball Mosier confirmed the Plan of
Reorganization filed by Duane H. Gillman, Chapter 11 trustee for
West Daniels Land Association, Inc.

At the confirmation hearing, the Trustee announced that he has
agreed with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service to modify the
April 23, 2013 version of the Plan to enlarge the period of time
for taxing authorities to file administrative expense claims.

The Plan provides for the classification and treatment of
12 classes of claims against and interests in the Debtor.  Almost
all of the claim classes will be paid in full under the Plan.

West Daniels Land Association, Inc. filed for bankruptcy on
Nov. 9, 2009 (Case No. 09-32502, Bankr. Utah). Duane H. Gillman --
dgillman@djplaw.com -- was appointed as Chapter 11 trustee on
Feb. 9, 2012.  Kenneth L. Cannon II, Esq. -- kcannon@djplaw.com
and Patrick E. Johnson, Esq. -- pjohnson@djplaw.com -- at Durham
Jones & Pinegar, P.C. serve as attorneys for the Chapter 11
trustee.

Conclusion of Law and a copy of the Plan are available at

XCELL ENERGY: Chapter 11 Restructuring Dismissed in May
-------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky
dismissed the Chapter 11 case of Xcell Energy and Coal Company,
LLC, et al., in a May 30 order.

The Debtors, in their motion, said that good cause exists for the
dismissal of the case because:

   a) The Debtors cannot file a plan and disclosure statement;

   b) conversion of the cases to proceedings under Chapter 7 would
      not be in the best interest of the Debtors' creditors or
      their estates; and

   c) the costs of remaining in a bankruptcy proceeding impose a
      substantial and continuing loss to or diminution of the
      estates.

The Court denied the motion to convert case from Chapter 11 to
Chapter 7 filed on May 28, 2013, on behalf of the U.S. Trustee.
Samuel K. Crocker, U.S. Trustee, said the Debtor has failed to pay
the quarterly fee.  The Debtor owes fees for the first quarter and
second quarters of 2013 in the aggregate amount of $1300.

Creditor Alpha Credit Resources, LLC also requested for the
conversion or dismissal of the Debtors' case.

                      About Xcell Energy

Xcell Energy and Coal Company, LLC, and its parent Energy
Investment Group, LLC, sought Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. E.D.
Ky. Case Nos. 13-70095 and 13-70096) on Feb. 14, 2013 in
Pikeville, Kentucky.

The Debtors sought bankruptcy after lender Alpha Credit Resources
LLC, owed $8 million, sought a receiver in state court and
scheduled a foreclosure auction on Xcell.

The Debtor is represented by attorneys at DelCotto Law Group PLLC
in Lexington, Kentucky.

Xcell Energy disclosed $32,656,400 in assets and $10,641,310 in
liabilities as of the Chapter 11 filing.


* Moody's Sees Robust Growth for US Self-Storage Sector
-------------------------------------------------------
The self-storage sector in the US will continue to grow strongly
this year, according to a new report from Moody's, "Self-Storage
Industry Is Poised for More Growth." Demand is solid, rents are
rising and the supply of new facilities is limited.

"The industry's underlying dynamics will likely be strong for the
next three to five years," said Alice Chung, a Moody's Analyst.
"The sector is benefitting from two factors: short-term leases and
a diverse customer base. And it also has a low break-even rate,
which boosts profitability."

Short-term leases allow companies to respond to market changes
quickly and easily, while a diverse customer base helps limit the
risks of exposure to a single tenant or too small a number of
tenants.

In addition, commercial customers, which run the gamut from large
pharmaceutical companies to small business owners and
entrepreneurs, are growing, which makes for additional occupancy
stability and longer average rental terms. The sector is also
benefiting from the growing number of "echo boomers," those aged
18-34, who are renting apartments rather than buying homes.

Self-storage real estate investment trusts (REITs) are in a
stronger position than small, local operators, which are
increasingly outsourcing their customer service and other
functions to the REITs. The larger REITs will likely continue to
benefit from further consolidation, although acquisitions will
take place at a measured pace.

"Moreover, compared with other real-estate asset classes, the
self-storage companies fared well during the Great Recession of
2008-2009, proving that they can weather economic troubles," added
Chung.


* 16 Senators Seek Inquiry of ATM-Style Pay Cards
-------------------------------------------------
Jessica Silver-Greenberg, writing for The New York Times'
DealBook, reported that 16 Democratic senators are asking
regulators to examine the use of A.T.M.-style cards to pay hourly
employees.

According to the report, in a letter on July 11, the senators
urged Richard Cordray, the director of the Consumer Financial
Protection Bureau, and Seth D. Harris, the acting secretary of the
Labor Department, to "take swift action to protect American
workers."

Across the country, a growing number of companies are doing away
with paper paychecks and, in some instances, direct deposit, to
offer prepaid cards, the report related.

The problem, though, according to consumer lawyers and employees,
is that in the vast majority of cases, using the cards can
generate large fees -- 50 cents for a balance inquiry and $2.25
for an out-of-network automated teller machine, for example, the
report pointed out.  For part-time and low-wage workers, the fees,
which can be difficult to escape, quickly devour much of the money
deposited on the cards.

Worried about drawing unwanted scrutiny that might threaten their
jobs, some employees say they are reluctant to request another
option, the report said.  Other employees say that while there is
a choice, they are automatically enrolled in the payroll-card
programs. Getting out, these employees say, can be difficult and
confusing.


* Bond Defaults Little Changed in 2013 Second Quarter
-----------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that there were 40 bond defaults worldwide in the first
half of 2013, exactly the same as last year's first two quarters.

The worldwide default rate on junk-rated debt nonetheless crept up
to 2.8 percent in the second quarter, compared with 2.5 percent
when the first quarter ended.  The default rate is down from 3.1
percent, where it was last year, according to a report this week
from Moody's Investors Service.

In the U.S., the junk default rate ended the second quarter at 2.9
percent, compared with 3 percent in the first quarter and 3.3
percent one year ago.  Moody's predicts that the global junk
default rate will "increase slightly" to 3.2 percent by the year's
end before declining to 2.7 percent by this time next year.  Among
the 19 Moody's-rated companies that defaulted in the second
quarter, 11 were in North America.  Four were from Europe.

Rated by dollar volume, defaults are down worldwide at 1.8 percent
in June compared with 2.1 percent a year ago.  Moody's distress
index went up slightly in the second quarter to 9.1 percent,
compared with 8.8 percent in the first quarter.  The distress rate
was 19.5 percent one year ago.  The distress index measures
companies whose debt trades for yields 10 percentage points more
than comparable U.S. Treasury securities.


* Lawyers Propose Ice-Cube Bonds Amid Rise in Going-Concern Sales
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that now that quickly completed asset sales "are a common
feature in the bankruptcies of large companies," two law
professors are proposing what they call ice-cube bonds to ensure
that junior creditors aren't shortchanged.

According to the report, Edward Janger of Brooklyn Law School and
Melissa Jacoby of the University of North Carolina School of Law
wrote an article for the Yale Law Journal to address issues
resulting from the current practice whereby, they said, "the
going-concern sale has replaced the traditional Chapter 11
reorganization."

The report notes that on the question of whether quickly completed
sales maximize value or "facilitate collusive deals," the
professors said the answer is "a little bit of both."  There's a
danger because "the purchaser may be able to buy the company for a
bargain," they wrote.  "Incumbent management may gain favored
positions in the acquired company," according to the article,
which hasn't been published yet.  "Judges are understandably
reluctant" to block quick sales in the absence of strong evidence
that someone is "bluffing about the need for speed," they wrote.

The report relates that to ensure that bankrupt companies aren't
bought too cheaply, the professors have proposed ice-cube bonds,
representing a portion of the sale price held back "to allow later
resolution of disputes about the value" of the business or the
priority of secured claims.  The bonds would "cover potential harm
caused by a hurry-up sale."  The bonds would represent money set
aside from sale proceeds, not from the purchaser on top of the
sale price.  When the sale is based on a credit bid, when the
buyer uses secured debt rather than cash, "the buyer could be
required to post a bond," Mr. Janger said in an interview,
according to the report.

The report says the name refers to the notion that companies in
bankruptcy are like melting ice cubes whose value disappears as
time passes.  Requiring such bonds would "reduce the routine use
of the melting ice cube argument when it isn't warranted,"
according to the professors.  The professors wouldn't require
bonds if the business is sold through approval of a Chapter 11
reorganization plan.  As a result, they said, more cases would be
channeled toward traditional Chapter 11 plans.  The professors
said whether judges would consider the profitability of a business
after the sale "depends on the type of business and the amount of
time that would otherwise have been required to accomplish a sale
under a plan."

The report discloses that they would allow "the parties and the
judge to determine the appropriate approach to valuation in a
particular case."  The professors said their proposal could be
adopted without amending the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.


* New Glass-Steagall Would Bar Terminating Swaps, Repos
-------------------------------------------------------
Carter Dougherty & Cheyenne Hopkins, writing for Bloomberg News,
reported that U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren and a bipartisan group
of lawmakers have introduced a bill aimed at re-creating the
Glass-Steagall Act, the Depression-era measure that separated
commercial and investment banking.

"It will take a lot of tools to get rid of too-big-to-fail, but
one of them ought to be that if you want to do high-stakes
gambling, good on you, but you do not get access to people's
checking accounts and savings accounts," Warren, a Massachusetts
Democrat, told Bloomberg Television's Peter Cook in an interview
on July 12.

According to the report, the bill sponsored by Warren along with
Senators John McCain, an Arizona Republican, Maria Cantwell, a
Washington Democrat, and Angus King, a Maine independent, would
separate traditional banks that offer checking and savings
accounts insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. from
"riskier financial institutions."  The latter category includes
companies involved in investment banking, insurance, swaps
dealing, hedge funds and private equity, according to the
lawmakers' statement released on July 11.

Warren, who announced plans for the bill at a hearing on Dodd-
Frank Act implementation, told regulators testifying before the
Senate Banking Committee that she didn't expect them to back her
right away, the report said.

"Based on what the regulators did to Glass-Steagall over the last
30 years, I don't expect anyone on this panel will jump and
endorse the new Glass-Steagall bill," Warren told officials from
the Treasury Department, Federal Reserve and other agencies, the
report related. "Even so we're going to keep pushing for it."

Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that the last provision in the bill, introduced on July 11
as S. 1282, would repeal Sections 555, 559, 560, 561, and 562 of
the code.  Those sections grant exemptions from the so-called
automatic stay and allow the liquidation of securities contracts,
repurchase agreements and swap agreements if one of the parties
files for bankruptcy.

Mr. Rochelle discloses that under the bill, parties to swaps,
repos and securities contracts couldn't terminate the agreements
or liquidate the underlying securities without permission from the
bankruptcy court.  The bill as a whole would recreate the
Depression-era law preventing banks from participating in
investment banking in return for federal insurance on customer
accounts.


* Cross-Border Swaps Deal to End U.S.-Europe Regulation Overlap
---------------------------------------------------------------
Silla Brush & Jim Brunsden, writing for Bloomberg News, reported
that U.S. and European Union financial regulators took a step
toward bringing derivatives trading under an integrated framework
of global regulation designed to reduce risks in the $633 trillion
swaps market.

According to the report, the accord, announced jointly on July 11
in Brussels and Washington by the EU and the U.S. Commodity
Futures Trading Commission, broke a deadlock over whether the U.S.
could impose its rules on trades booked in Europe. Banks and other
swaps traders said the deal reduces the chance they will be forced
to comply with conflicting regulatory regimes.

"This shows that the CFTC recognizes that other countries and
other jurisdictions have equally made a lot of progress and that
they have to recognize those rules," Ken Bentsen, president of the
Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association, said in a
telephone interview with Bloomberg. "The devil's in the details.
But it would appear to be a shift in a positive way."

The securities association represents Barclays Plc, JPMorgan Chase
& Co., and Citigroup Inc., among hundreds of banks and asset
managers that had raised concerns about the international reach of
CFTC swap-trading requirements, the report related.  European and
Asian regulators had complained that the U.S. agency was
overreaching by trying to extend its rules to trades that are
booked overseas.

The report said the CFTC is set to officially complete its
guidance on the reach of its rules after CFTC Chairman Gary
Gensler and Mark Wetjen, a Democratic commissioner, resolved
differences that had divided the commission's three Democrats,
according to four people with knowledge of their talks. The two
reached agreement on the principles and were drafting a document
with the details, the people said.

The CFTC on July 11 issued four decisions easing some rules and
deadlines in accord with the joint agreement, the report added.


* UK Floats New Client Money Rules for Collapsed Firms
------------------------------------------------------
Stewart Bishop of BankruptcyLaw360 reported that the U.K.'s
financial services regulator proposed new rules aimed at
protecting client accounts after the collapse of such investment
firms as Lehman Brothers International Europe and MF Global
Holdings Ltd. revealed shortcomings in the current regulatory
regime.

According to the report, the Financial Conduct Authority said it
was seeking feedback from the industry on whether to permit
speedier recovery of money by clients in the event of an
investment firm's bankruptcy by allowing distribution of client
money based on the firm's records.


* Paul Giordano Among Florida Trend's Bankruptcy & Workout Elite

been selected as one of Florida's "Legal Elite" for Bankruptcy &

previous Legal Elite Winners.

The resulting lists represent fewer than 2% of the active Florida
Bar members who practice in Florida.

Mr. Giordano, currently serving as the Secretary of the Southwest
Florida Bankruptcy Professionals Association, handles a variety of
business and commercial litigation, with a special focus on
bankruptcy and creditors' rights, partnership disputes, commercial

                            *********

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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