1250 OCEANSIDE PARTNERS: Court Approves Plan Outline
----------------------------------------------------
Janis L. Magin, writing for Pacific Business News, reports that
U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Robert Faris in Honolulu has approved a
preliminary plan to bring the 1,500-acre Hokulia resort
development on the Big Island of Hawaii out of Chapter 11
bankruptcy under the control of a group that includes Rob Walton,
chairman of Wal-Mart Stores Inc.  The proponents to the Plan
include SunChase Holdings CEO William A. Pope and Mr. Walton.
Judge Faris has scheduled a confirmation hearing for Feb. 3.

According to Pacific Business News, SunChase Holdings had
purchased the bulk of the debt held by Hokulia -- a luxury project
above Kealakekua Bay that has been beset by numerous troubles
through the years and placed the project developer, 1250 Oceanside
Partners, into Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization in March.
SunChase had purchased the notes on Hokulia's second and third
phases from Lloyd's Banking Group (NYSE: LYG), which had taken
control of the project after taking over Bank of Scotland, which
had taken control of Hokulia and three other projects from the
Lyle Anderson Cos. in 2008.

In September, Acting U.S. Trustee Tiffany L. Carroll objected to
the bankruptcy plan, saying it failed to describe how it would pay
unsecured creditors.  According to Pacific Business News, the
Acting U.S. Trustee said the Debtors need to disclose more
information, including how and when unsecured creditors will be
paid, how the partnership, Sun Kona Finance I, can take a secured
claim of $40 million on $20.5 million in assets.  Business News
also said the Acting U.S. Trustee argued that Sun Kona's citation
that Mr. Walton, son of Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton, has a net
worth of $21 billion isn't enough to explain how the group has, or
will have, the means to pay a $65 million line of credit that is
crucial to the plan to exit bankruptcy.

Debtors 1250 Oceanside Partners and two of its affiliates, Pacific
Star Company and Front Nine LLC, filed a joint plan in August to
exit bankruptcy under SunChase Holdings Inc., a privately held
real estate development and investment company.  As reported by
the Troubled Company Reporter in September, the Debtors and Sun
Kona Finance I LLC filed on Sept. 9 a First Amended Disclosure
Statement for the Debtors' and SKFI's Joint Plan of Reorganization
dated Aug. 15.  The SKFI liens encumber substantially all of each
of the Debtors' assets.

According to the First Amended Disclosure Statement, the
additional capital necessary to emerge from Chapter 11 will be
provided by the exit loan from SKFI which will provide the Debtors
with a line of credit of up to $65,000,000.  Based on the Debtors'
projections, the exit loan will allow the Debtor to pay its
outstanding administrative claims and cure claims upon emergence,
pay all other restructured debts as they become due, and will
provide adequate working capital for the Debtors going forward.

A copy of the Plan Proponents' First Amended Disclosure Statement
is available at http://bankrupt.com/misc/1250oceanside.doc384.pdf

                  About 1250 Oceanside Partners

1250 Oceanside Partners, Front Nine, LLC, and Pacific Star
Company, LLC, owners of the 1,800-acre Hokuli'a luxury real
estate development near Kona on the island of Hawaii, sought
Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. D. Hawaii Lead Case No. 13-00353)
on March 6, 2013, in Honolulu.

The Debtors were formed by developer Lyle Anderson and were
part of his development "empire", which included developments
in Hawaii, Arizona, New Mexico and Scotland.  The secured
lender, Bank of Scotland, declared a default and obtained
control of the Debtors in January 2008.

Development of the property, which has 3.5 miles of waterfront
on the Kona coast, stopped after the developers were declared
in default under the loan.  Oceanside and Front Nine own most
of the land within the Hokuli'a project, which is the principal
development.  Pacific Star owns the land referred to as
"Keopuka", near Hokuli'a.  The Hokuli'a was to have 730
residential units, an 18-hole golf course, club and other
amenities.

The Debtors say their assets are worth $68.1 million while they
are jointly liable to $625 million of debt to Sun Kona Finance
LLC, which acquired the Hawaii loan from Bank of Scotland.

Simon Klevansky, Esq., Alika L. Piper, Esq., and Nicole D.
Stucki, Esq., at Klevansky Piper, LLP, represent the Debtor in
its restructuring effort.  They replaced the law firm of Gelber,
Gelber & Ingersoll as general counsel.

A creditors committee has not been appointed.

James A. Wagner, Esq., and Allison A. Ito, Esq., at Wagner Choi &
Verbrugge, represent Creditor Sun Kona Finance I, LLC, as counsel.


1250 OCEANSIDE PARTNERS: Entitled to Foreclose on Maryl Mortgage
----------------------------------------------------------------
1250 Oceanside Partners seeks to enforce a promissory note and
foreclose a mortgage made by defendant Maryl Group, Inc.  The
other defendants claim interests in the mortgaged property.
Oceanside now seeks summary judgment.  Maryl argues that the court
lacks jurisdiction and that Oceanside is not entitled to
foreclose.

In an Oct. 1, 2013 Memorandum of Decision available at
http://is.gd/J87qbmfrom Leagle.com, Bankruptcy Judge Robert J.
Faris concluded there is no dispute as to any material fact and
1250 Oceanside is entitled to judgment as a matter of law.  Judge
Faris recommends that the District Court enter judgment
accordingly.

The case is, 1250 Oceanside Partners, Plaintiff, v. Maryl Group,
Inc. Defendant, Adv. Proc. Pro. No. 13-90049 (Bankr. D. Hawaii).

In February 2001, Oceanside sold Maryl a lot in a planned
development called Hokuli'a.  Oceanside failed to complete the
Hokuli'a development as promised.  Maryl ceased payment on the
note in November 2010.  On April 26, 2012, Maryl signed a release,
which discharged its claims against Oceanside.  After signing the
release, Maryl did not resume payments on the note.

Oceanside filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy on March 6, 2013.  On
March 24, 2013, Oceanside sent Maryl a demand letter declaring
default and requiring Maryl to cure its arrears.  Maryl filed a
proof of claim for $393,286.04 on July 9, 2013.  The Debtor filed
the adversary proceeding on July 25, 2013.

In its motion, Oceanside seeks summary judgment on two issues:
first, that Maryl is in default and owes Oceanside according to
the terms of the note; and second, that Oceanside is entitled to
foreclose on the lot.  Maryl filed a motion to dismiss Oceanside's
complaint and a countermotion for summary judgment.

                  About 1250 Oceanside Partners

1250 Oceanside Partners, Front Nine, LLC, and Pacific Star
Company, LLC, owners of the 1,800-acre Hokuli'a luxury real

1617 WESTCLIFF: Asset Sale Moots Wells Fargo's Stay Relief Bid
--------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California
approved a stipulation (i) voluntarily dismissing Wells Fargo
Bank, N.A.'s motion for relief from the automatic stay in the
Chapter 11 case of 1617 Westcliff, LLC; and (ii) vacating the
Oct. 2, 2013 hearing on the relief motion.

The Debtor and Wells Fargo agree to dismiss the motion for relief
because the motion is considered moot after the sale of the
property -- 1617 Westcliff Drive, Newport Beach, California --
closed on Sept. 10.

In a separate docket entry, the Court deemed the Oct. 2 hearing
off the calendar.

                       About 1617 Westcliff

1617 Westcliff, LLC, filed a bare-bones Chapter 11 petition
(Bankr. C.D. Cal. Case No. 12-19326) on Aug. 2, 2012, in Santa
Ana, California.  The Debtor estimated assets of $10 million to
$50 million and liabilities of $1 million to $10 million.
Bankruptcy Judge Mark S. Wallace oversees the case.  Sarah C.
Boone, Esq., and D. Edward Hays, Esq., at Marshack Hays LLP, serve
as the Debtor's counsel.

The Debtor filed the plan of liquidation and disclosure statement
on July 1, 2013, seeking to accomplish payment of creditors in
full by reorganizing its personal assets and liabilities through
the sale of its only substantial asset, a commercial real property
commonly known as 1617 Westcliff Drive, in Newport Beach,
California.  The property, according to court documents, is a
mixed use, Class B building mostly occupied by medical office
space.  It comprises 32,000 square feet of rentable space in a
single two-story building situated on approximately 1.56 acres of
land in an up-scale commercial district of Newport Beach.


38 STUDIOS: Curt Schilling to Hold Estate Sale Amid Suit
--------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that former pitching ace Curt Schilling is set to
hold an estate sale on Saturday, Oct. 12, with everything from
high-end furniture to his DVD collection on the block, weeks after
a Rhode Island judge refused to toss the lawsuit against him over
a $75 million loan financing his bankrupt video game venture.

According to the report, the sale is scheduled to take place at
Schilling's seven-bedroom, 8,000-square-foot home in Massachusetts
and also features big-ticket items such as a grand piano, a
vintage Coca-Cola vending machine, and Tiffany and Waterford
crystal.

38 Studios LLC, a video-game developer founded by former Boston
Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling, filed for liquidation on June 8,
2012, without attempting to reorganize.  Although based in
Providence, Rhode Island, the company filed the Chapter 7 petition
in Delaware (Case No. 12-11743).


AGRIPROCESSORS INC: Rite Care's Bid to Reopen Discovery Denied
--------------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Thad H. Collins denied a defendant's request to
reopen discovery in the case, JOSEPH E. SARACHEK, in his capacity
as CHAPTER 7 TRUSTEE, Plaintiff. v. RITE SURGICAL SUPPLIES, INC.
d/b/a RITE CARE MEDICAL PRODUCTS, Defendant, Adv. Proc. No.
10-09183 (Bankr. N.D. Iowa).

"The Court has taken a flexible, if not lenient, approach to
extensions of time throughout the adversary proceedings in this
case.  The Court points out that it has extended deadlines in this
case to reopen an issue not previously contested?and provided six
months to do so.  Defendant did not get its work completed during
this liberal extension of time. The time has expired and no
additional good reason exists to extend it further," Judge Collins
said in an Oct. 2, 2013 Order available at http://is.gd/8akRMr
from Leagle.com.

The Chapter 7 Trustee filed the Complaint on Nov. 11, 2010
alleging that within two years of the bankruptcy petition, the
Defendant received payments totaling $350,000.  The Chapter 7
Trustee seeks to recover these payments as either fraudulent
conveyances under 11 U.S.C. Sec. 548 or as preferential transfers
under 11 U.S.C. Sec. 547(b).  After several motions to extend
time, the Court extended the discovery deadlines to Sept. 4, 2012.

On March 11, 2013, the Defendant filed a Motion to Continue Trial.
The Defendant noted that it had new information and now wanted to
contest the issue of solvency during the transfer period. The
Court granted the motion to allow the Defendant time to engage in
discovery on the insolvency issue.  The Court required that
parties conclude discovery on that limited issue by August 2,
2013.

The Defendant filed the Motion to Reopen Discovery on Aug. 30,
2013.  The Defendant seeks to reopen discovery to acquire
additional information necessary for its expert to conduct a
solvency analysis.  The Defendant also seeks to take the
deposition of Mr. Marc Ross and Mr. Joseph Sarachek on the issue
of solvency.  Trial is set for Jan. 6, 2014.

The Chapter 7 Trustee objects to the Motion to Reopen Discovery.
He denies the Defendant's assertion that there was an informal
extension of discovery deadlines.  The Trustee argues that the
Defendant fails to show a change in circumstances that warrants
reopening discovery as required by Fed. R. Bankr. P. 7016.

                   About Agriprocessors Inc.

Headquartered in Postville, Iowa, Agriprocessors once produced
half the kosher beef and 40% of the kosher poultry in the U.S.  It
filed for bankruptcy following a raid by immigration authorities
in May 2008 on the plant in Postville, Iowa, where 389 workers
were arrested for having forged immigration documents.  The raid
led to numerous federal criminal charges, including a high-profile
case against Agriprocessors' President, Sholom Rubashkin.  The
Company filed a Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. E.D.N.Y. Case No.
08-47472) on Nov. 4, 2008.  The case was later transferred to Iowa
(Bankr. N.D. Iowa Case No. 08-02751).  Kevin J. Nash, Esq., at
Finkel Goldstein Rosenbloom & Nash, represented the Company in its
restructuring effort.  The Debtor estimated assets and debts of
$100 million to $500 million in its Chapter 11 petition.

SHF Industries Inc. purchased substantially all of the Debtor's
assets for $8.5 million in July 2009, and renamed the company Agri
Star.  The Court approved the sale free and clear of all liens.

Agriprocessors' case was then converted to liquidation under
Chapter 7, at the consent of the Chapter 11 trustee appointed to
take over the estate.  The Chapter 11 trustee became the trustee
in the Chapter 7 case to liquidate the Debtor's remaining assets
and provide distributions to creditors.


AIRTRONIC USA: Becomes Exclusive OEM Supplier for Major Client
--------------------------------------------------------------
Global Digital Solutions, Inc. on Oct. 8 disclosed that the
company's planned merger partner, Airtronic USA, Inc., has become
the exclusive OEM supplier for a major international client under
a private label agreement with a first stage value of
approximately $95 million.

The agreement is for Airtronic's family of M203 and M203A grenade
launchers, some of which will be equipped with Airtronic's patent-
pending locking device that imparts enhanced stability and
accuracy.

"This is exciting but not completely unexpected news," said GDSI's
President and CEO Richard J. Sullivan.  "The agreement
demonstrates what we have been saying all along: Airtronic is
well-positioned for strong growth as a well-respected, advanced
small arms manufacturer. We congratulate the entire Airtronic team
on this significant development."

On October 2, 2013, the United States Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division, confirmed the
amended chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization plan submitted by
Airtronic.  Now that the Plan has been confirmed by the court,
GDSI will be able to complete its acquisition of Airtronic.
Airtronic's bankruptcy case will be dismissed upon the
consummation of the Plan -- which includes completion of the
merger with GDSI -- and Airtronic will be capitalized with
adequate working capital to compete effectively as an innovative
leader in small arms manufacturing.

"We're thrilled to be able to announce this substantial OEM
agreement so soon after the court confirmed our reorganization
plan," said Dr. Merriellyn Kett, Airtronic's President and CEO who
will continue serving as the company's CEO after the merger
between GDSI and Airtronic is finalized.  "The Airtronic team has
been very busy working to meet the needs of our customers in the
United States and around the world.  This exclusive OEM agreement
is a testament to the world-class quality of our products and the
excellent relationships we have established with our customers
over the years."

Founded in 1990, Airtronic is a well-respected, award-winning
manufacturer of critical battlefield weapons.  The company

ALCATEL LUCENT: To Eliminate 10,000 Positions
---------------------------------------------
Sam Schechner, writing for The Wall Street Journal, reported that
struggling telecom-gear maker Alcatel-Lucent SA said it will lay
off 15% of its global workforce, but investors were mixed on the
move and French officials said they would try to limit its scope.

According to the report, the Franco-American company said on Oct.
8 it would cut its global workforce by 10,000 people world-wide by
the end of 2015, while halving the number of its "business hubs,"
in order to refocus on a handful of new technologies and
businesses.

The company will also leave its Paris headquarters by the foot of
the Eiffel Tower for cheaper office space out of town, Chief
Executive Michel Combes said, the report related.

The new round of cuts are slated to hit France particularly hard,
with research sites to close, 900 jobs set to be eliminated and
another 900 that may be shifted internally or outsourced, the
report said.  French Industry Minister Arnaud Montebourg said he
had asked Alcatel-Lucent to limit the job cuts.

"We asked Alcatel-Lucent's management to revise downward its job-
cut plan, to reduce it because we cannot eternally pay the price
of errors," Mr. Montebourg said.

Headquartered in Paris, France, Alcatel-Lucent is a leading
developer and manufacturer of telecommunications equipment, with
sales of approximately EUR15.3 billion for fiscal year 2011.

ARCH COAL: Moody's Cuts CFR to B3 & Sr. Secured Credit to B1
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded the ratings of Arch Coal,
including the company's Corporate Family Rating (CFR) to B3 from
B2, Probability of Default Rating (PDR) to B3-PD from B2-PD, the
rating on senior secured credit facility to B1 from Ba3, and the
ratings on senior unsecured debt to Caa1 from B3. The outlook is
negative.

At the same time, Moody's upgraded the company's speculative grade
liquidity (SGL) rating to SGL-2 from SGL-3 to reflect the
substantial cash inflow from the recent sale of Canyon Fuel
assets.  This concludes the review initiated on August 5, 2013.
The rating action was prompted by recent deterioration in
performance and persistent weakness in market conditions for both
thermal and metallurgical coal.

Ratings Rationale:

The rating action was prompted by recent deterioration in
performance due to continuing weakness in the coal industry, and
our expectation that while both thermal and metallurgical markets
have reached bottom, the potential for material recovery in demand
and pricing is limited. "Based on our assumptions of flat thermal
spot prices over the next eighteen months, and benchmark
settlements for high quality metallurgical coal of about $155, we
expect average realization per ton to decline in 2014 relative to
2013, with Debt/ EBITDA, as adjusted by Moody's, exceeding 15x
through the end of 2014 and annual negative free cash flows in the
$250 - $400 million range," Moody's said.

"We believe that in order for Arch's metrics to return to
sustainable levels, coal prices in the Powder River Basin (PRB)
would need to increase to $13 - $14 range (from current spot
prices of around $11), settlements for high quality metallurgical
coal would have to recover to $170 - $175 range, and prices for
Central Appalachian thermal coal would have to recover by $10 from
current spot prices of roughly $60. Over the past eighteen months,
production volumes in the Powder River Basin experienced a steep
decline to roughly 420 million short tons in 2012 from roughly 460
million short tons a year prior. Although some demand came back on
natural gas price recovery, production volumes remained steady in
2013 due to working down of the inventories. As inventories in the
region have now normalized, spot prices have recovered from sub-$9
levels a year ago to $11 range -- a level that allows for an
average-cost producer to generate very thin margins. Although we
believe that PRB will continue to gain some market share at the
expense of the continuing secular decline in Central Appalachia,
we expect that natural gas prices in the $3.50- $4 range and
additional production volumes returning to the market may dampen
price recovery. We believe that thermal price recovery in Central
Appalachia is unlikely, as the region is in secular decline due to
high cost of production, competition from low cost natural gas and
regulations-driven coal plant retirements. In addition we believe
that continuing weakness in the global steel industry and weak
Australian dollar will prevent a robust recovery in the
metallurgical coal prices. The downgrade reflects our expectation
that absent material upward momentum to commodity prices, Arch
will continue to burn cash, and the company's leverage metrics
will remain above 10x," according to Moody's.

Arch's liquidity position is good, including roughly $1.4 billion
in cash and marketable securities, pro-forma for Canyon Fuel sale
proceeds. Although we expect Arch to be in compliance with the
revolver's covenants over the next eighteen months, we view
availability of external liquidity sources as limited, given that
the company's unutilized $350 million revolver contains a minimum
liquidity covenant of $450 million. The company also has roughly
$130 million available under its securitization facilities.

Negative outlook reflects Moody's view that absent robust recovery
in coal prices, Arch's credit metrics may not return to
sustainable levels.

The ratings could be upgraded should metallurgical and/or thermal
coal prices recover, such that the company's leverage, as
adjusted, is expected to track below 6x and free cash flow is
expected to turn positive. A further downgrade would result if
liquidity deteriorates, if cash burn does not subside, and/or
Debt/ EBITDA is not expected to be sustained below 7x after 2014.

Arch Coal is one of the largest US coal producers which operates
in all of the major US coal basins. The company's production
consists mainly of low-sulfur thermal coal from its Power River
Basin mines and thermal and metallurgical coal from Appalachia.
Over the twelve months ended June 30, 2013 the company generated
$3.6 billion in revenue.

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

BERNARD L. MADOFF: Ex-Employees Trial to Shine New Light on Scam
----------------------------------------------------------------
Michael Bathon, substituting for Bloomberg bankruptcy columnist
Bill Rochelle, reports that Bernard Madoff's former personal
secretary is among five of the con man's ex-employees who will be
the first to face a jury in a criminal trial for their alleged
roles in carrying out the world's biggest Ponzi scheme.

According to the report, the former employees, all of whom have
pleaded not guilty, include Annette Bongiorno, who worked with
Madoff for 40 years and helped recruit investors.  Jury selection
for the trial, which the judge estimated could last five months,
was set to begin Oct. 7 in federal court in Manhattan.  The
proceeding will offer the fullest public accounting yet of how
Madoff carried out the fraud, which cost thousands of investors
$17 billion in lost principal and billions more in imaginary
profit.  A bankruptcy court trustee is still selling assets and
re-paying victims.  Earlier guilty pleas by Madoff, 75, and some
of his top aides averted a trial until now.  "People have always
wondered what was known inside Madoff's operation and this trial
will be our first window into that world," said Stephen Miller, a
former federal prosecutor and a lawyer at Cozen O'Connor in
Philadelphia.  "There hasn't been an insider telling their story
publicly yet."

The report notes that prosecutors allege Madoff hid the fraud for
decades with help from the defendants: Bongiorno, who helped run
the investment advisory business; Joann Crupi, a back-office
worker who managed large accounts; ex-operations chief Daniel
Bonventre and computer programmers Jerome O'Hara and George Perez.

The case is U.S. v. O'Hara, 10-cr-00228, U.S. District Court,
Southern District of New York (Manhattan).

                       About Bernard L. Madoff

Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC and Bernard L. Madoff
orchestrated the largest Ponzi scheme in history, with losses
topping US$50 billion.  On Dec. 15, 2008, the Honorable Louis A.
Stanton of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of
New York granted the application of the Securities Investor
Protection Corporation for a decree adjudicating that the
customers of BLMIS are in need of the protection afforded by the
Securities Investor Protection Act of 1970.  The District Court's
Protective Order (i) appointed Irving H. Picard, Esq., as trustee
for the liquidation of BLMIS, (ii) appointed Baker & Hostetler LLP
as his counsel, and (iii) removed the SIPA Liquidation proceeding
to the Bankruptcy Court (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Adv. Pro. No. 08-01789)
(Lifland, J.).  Mr. Picard has retained AlixPartners LLP as claims
agent.

On April 13, 2009, former BLMIS clients filed an involuntary
Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition against Bernard Madoff (Bankr.
S.D.N.Y. 09-11893).  The case is before Hon. Burton Lifland.  The
petitioning creditors -- Blumenthal & Associates Florida General
Partnership, Martin Rappaport Charitable Remainder Unitrust,
Martin Rappaport, Marc Cherno, and Steven Morganstern -- assert
US$64 million in claims against Mr. Madoff based on the balances
contained in the last statements they got from BLMIS.

On April 14, 2009, Grant Thornton UK LLP as receiver placed Madoff
Securities International Limited in London under bankruptcy
protection pursuant to Chapter 15 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code
(Bankr. S.D. Fla. 09-16751).

The Chapter 15 case was later transferred to Manhattan.  In June
2009, Judge Lifland approved the consolidation of the Madoff SIPA
proceedings and the bankruptcy case.

Judge Denny Chin of the U.S. District Court for the Southern
District of New York on June 29, 2009, sentenced Mr. Madoff to
150 years of life imprisonment for defrauding investors in United
States v. Madoff, No. 09-CR-213 (S.D.N.Y.).

From recoveries in lawsuits coupled with money advanced by SIPC,
Mr. Picard has paid about 58 percent of customer claims totaling
$17.3 billion.  The most recent distribution was in March 2013.

Mr. Picard has collected about $9.35 billion, not including an
additional $2.2 billion that was forfeit to the government and
likewise will go to customers. Picard is holding almost
$4.4 billion he can't distribute on account of outstanding
appeals and disputes.  The largest holdback, almost $2.8 billion,
results from disputed claims.


BERRY PLASTICS: Appoints R. Rolfe to Board of Directors
-------------------------------------------------------
Berry Plastics Group, Inc., appointed Ronald (Ron) S. Rolfe to its
Board of Directors.  He will also serve as a member of the
Company's Audit Committee.  Mr. Rolfe replaces Steven (Steve) C.
Graham who is stepping down from the Company's Board.

Mr. Rolfe was a member of the Litigation Department at Cravath,
Swaine & Moore LLP for more than 40 years.  In January 2011, he
retired as a Partner of the firm.  During his tenure, Mr. Rolfe
led major antitrust and securities cases; SEC, NYSE, NASDAQ, and
grand jury investigations; and, a wide range of commercial
litigation and arbitrations.  He was also active in major merger
and acquisition transactions and corporate governance advice.

Mr. Rolfe is a board member of the Strategic Committee of Captain
Bidco SAS (France), Noranda Aluminum Holding Corporation (NYSE:
NOR), Advanced Assessment Systems, Inc., and an advisor to the
board of directors of Tune Core, Inc.  He holds an A.B. from
Harvard College and graduated magna cum laude with a J.D. from
Columbia Law School, where he served as an editor of the Columbia
Law Review.  Mr. Rolfe was also a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar and
James Kent Scholar.  Mr. Rolfe dedicates much time to both
professional organizations and civic endeavors, including serving
as President of the Board of Trustees of The Allen-Stevenson
School.

Steven Graham has served as a member of Berry Plastics' Board of
Directors since 2006.

"On behalf of Berry Plastics and its Board of Directors, I wish to
extend our sincere gratitude for Steve's commitment to our
Company," said Jon Rich, chairman and CEO of Berry Plastics.  "Ron
is highly regarded in the legal community and we are honored to
have him join our Board."

In accordance with the Company's non-employee director
compensation policy, Mr. Rolfe will receive compensation of
$85,000 per year.  In addition, subject to the approval of the
compensation committee and board of directors, Mr. Rolfe will be
granted a vested option to purchase approximately 14,000 shares of
common stock of the Company with an exercise price equal to the
fair market value of such stock as of the date of that grant.

                        About Berry Plastics

Berry Plastics Corporation manufactures and markets plastic
packaging products, plastic film products, specialty adhesives and
coated products.  At Jan. 2, 2010, the Company had more than 80
production and manufacturing facilities, primarily located in the

Plastics Group, Inc.  Berry Group is primarily owned by affiliates
of Apollo Management, L.P., and Graham Partners.  Berry, through
its wholly owned subsidiaries operates five reporting segments:
Rigid Open Top, Rigid Closed Top, Flexible Films, Tapes/Coatings

concentration in any one region or with any one customer.

On Dec. 3, 2009, Berry Plastics obtained control of 100 percent of
the capital stock of Pliant upon Pliant's emergence from

As reported by the TCR on Feb. 1, 2013, Moody's Investors Service
upgraded the corporate family rating of Berry Plastics to B2 from
B3 and the probability of default rating to B2-PD from B3-PD.  The
upgrade of the corporate family rating to B2 from B3 reflects
the improvement in pro-forma credit metrics and management's
publicly stated goal to pursue a less aggressive, more balanced
financial profile.

In November 2011, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed the
'B-' corporate credit rating on Berry and its holding company
parent, Berry Plastics Group Inc.  "The ratings on Berry reflect
the risks associated with the company's highly leveraged financial
profile and acquisition- driven growth strategy as well as its
fair business risk profile," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Cynthia Werneth.

BITI LLC: Court Enters Final Decree Closing Reorganization Case
---------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of New York on
Oct. 3, 2013, entered a final decree closing the Chapter 11 case
of Biti, LLC.

The Debtor reported to the Court that it has consummated its Third
Amended Plan of Reorganization dated March 5, 2013, which was
confirmed on May 8, 2013.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on April 10, 2013,
according to the Disclosure Statement, the Debtor plans to get the
financing to take the condominium project to permits, at which
time it would pay all creditors in full by, either, selling the
project, refinancing by way of construction loans, or bringing in
a new equity partners with new cash infusion.

Biti sought authorization from the Court to obtain secured
postpetition financing with superpriority status in the aggregate
amount of $3,500,000 from Bridge Funding Inc.  The Financing was
to close within 29 days of the confirmation order approving the
Financing becoming a final order.  The proceeds of the Financing
would constitute the "Funding Pool" which would be used to fund
the Plan.

If, however, the Property has not been sold or a commitment for
refinancing has not been received by the Debtor or a closing with
respect to any of these events has been scheduled by the date
which is 22 months from the Effective Date then the Property will
be scheduled for foreclosure sale by Valley National Bank for a
date which is no later than two years after the Effective Date.
The net proceeds of any foreclosure sale will be deposited into
the Distribution Fund and will be available to pay Class 4 Non-
Insider General Unsecured Claims.

Under the Plan, the Allowed Class 1 Secured Claim of Valley
National Bank, listed in the Debtor's Schedules at $6,500,000,
will be satisfied by paying Valley National from the Distribution
fund the full amount of the Debt in Cash on the earlier of (i) the
Distribution Date or (ii) the date of the closing of the sale of
the Property.

Non-Insider Unsecured Claims in Class 4 of approximately
$565,849.31, will be paid in cash, in full, on the Distribution
Date together with interest on the Distribution Date from the
Distribution fund.

Holders of Equity Interest in Class 6 will receive no cash
distribution.

                          About Biti LLC

Oyster Bay, New York-based Biti LLC filed a Chapter 11 petition
(Bankr. E.D.N.Y. Case No. 12-74810) in New York on Aug. 2, 2012.
The Debtor, a Single Asset Real Estate as defined in 11 U.S.C.
Sec. 101(51B), scheduled $14,146,612 in assets and $12,900,070 in
liabilities.  The Debtor owns 11.701 acres of property located at
the south side of Skillman Street, west of Bryant Avenue, Village
of Roslyn.

Judge Robert E. Grossman presides over the case.  Ronald M.
Terenzi, Esq., at Stagg, Terenzi, Confusione, & Wabnik LLP, in
Garden City, N.Y., represents the Debtor as counsel.


BLOOMIN' BRANDS: S&P Raises CCR to 'BB-'; Outlook Positive
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it raised the ratings on
Bloomin' Brands Inc. and its operating subsidiary OSI Restaurant
Partners LLC, including the corporate credit rating, which S&P
raised to 'BB-' from 'B+'.  The outlook is positive.

"The rating action reflects our expectation that operating
performance trends will remain good in the next 12 months with
positive same-store sales and unit expansion.  We also believe the
brand revitalization initiatives and cost savings from
productivity improvements will contribute to further margin
expansion in 2013 and 2014, despite commodity cost pressure and
still-weak consumer spending," said credit analyst Helena Song.
"We expect debt leverage will remain in the high-3x area in 2013
and further improve to the mid-3x area in 2014 because of
continued EBITDA growth and debt reduction from free operating
cash flow."

The positive outlook on Bloomin' Brands Inc. reflects S&P's
expectation that continued positive operating momentum (mid- to
high-single-digit revenue growth) could contribute to further
strengthening of credit measures in the next 12 months, with debt
leverage in the high-3x area in 2013 and improving to the mid-3.5x
area or below at the end of 2014.

S&P could raise the rating if it believes the company can achieve
debt leverage of 3.5x or below on a sustained basis.  This could
occur if EBITDA continues to grow by 12% on mid-double-digit
revenue growth and stable margins, while debt remains consistent.

S&P could revise the outlook to stable if sales growth slows to
2%, while gross margin declines 100 bps.  This would result in
debt leverage of 4.0x or above.  Although less likely, a negative
rating action could also occur if the company adopts a more
aggressive financial policy, given its majority ownership by
private equity.


BROWARD COUNTY HFA: Moody's Cuts Sr. Bonds 2007A&B Rating to Ba2
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's has downgraded to Ba2(sf) from Ba1 (sf) $7,245,000 of
Broward County Housing Finance Authority Single Family Mortgage
Revenue Senior Bonds Series 2007A and B, and has downgraded to B2
(sf) from Ba1 (sf) $305,000 of Subordinate Bonds Series 2007C.
Action concludes the review (direction uncertain) from earlier
this year following Moody's assessment of the program's financial
position.

Summary Rationale:

Both the senior and subordinate bonds are dependent upon a
subordinate loan portfolio consisting of only 10 current loans as
of April 1, 2013. Poor historical loan performance is evidenced by
the fact that roughly 60% of all original loans have either
defaulted or are seriously delinquent.

Regarding the 2007AB Senior Bond downgrade, Moody's rationale is
also based on cash flow projections which demonstrate that the
senior bonds still depend on subordinate loan performance for
sufficiency. Probability of default is high, though we expect that
the earliest projected revenue shortfall would occur in 2036 if
the entire subordinate loan portfolio were to default immediately
and receive 0% recovery.

Regarding the 2007C Subordinate Bond downgrade is based on cash
flow projections which demonstrate that present value losses are
material. Probability of default is higher than it is for the
senior bonds, and we expect that the earliest projected revenue
shortfall would occur in 2022 if the entire subordinate loan
portfolio were to default immediately and receive 0% recovery.

What Could Make the Rating Go Up:

2007AB Senior Bonds

- Sustained, strong subordinate loan performance that eliminates
   the bonds' probability of default

2007C Subordinate Bonds

- It is unlikely that the subordinate bonds would be upgraded
   unless subordinate loan performance dramatically improves and
   thereby reduces the losses given default and probability of
   default

What Could Make the Rating Go Down:

All Bonds

- Continued deterioration of subordinate loan portfolio which
   increases the probability of default and/or the losses given
   default


BUFFALO PARK: PennyMac Mortgage Objects to Lewis Debtors' Plan
--------------------------------------------------------------
Secured creditor PennyMac Mortgage Investment Trust Holdings 1,
LLC, objects to confirmation of Debtors Ronald P. Lewis and Carol
J. Lewis's proposed amended plan of reorganization dated Aug. 30,
2013.

PennyMac objects to the principal balance of the loan being
modified to $318,198.  According to PennyMac, as of Sept. 27,
2013, its total unpaid principal balance, interest, and other
charges, amounts to $417,559.  In addition, Debtors do not provide
any documentation, such as an appraisal, to indicate why the
Debtors value the property located at 6954 Granite Crag Circle,
Evergreen, Colorado at $318,198.  PennyMac says it is in the
process of obtaining the Court's authorization to move forward
with an interior appraisal of the Property in order to determine
its current value.

PennyMac further objects to its treatment in the Plan due to
Debtors' proposal to modify the interest from an adjustable rate
of 6.982% to 3.505.  PennyMac explains that 3.5% is not the market
rate of interest on non-residential real property.

As reported in the TCR on Sept. 9, 2013, Ronald P. Lewis, Carol J.
Lewis, and Buffalo Park Development, Co., filed with the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Colorado a Disclosure
Statement explaining the Debtors' Joint Plan of Reorganization
dated Aug. 30, 2013.

According to the Disclosure Statement, the Debtors will
restructure their debts and obligations and continue to operate in
the ordinary course of business, including the sale and leasing of
properties and operation of the businesses.  In the Lewis
bankruptcy case, the rental income from the properties and the
Lewis' disposable income, together with the restructuring of the
mortgage and other secured debts, will generate sufficient funds
to pay on a pro rata basis a portion of the Lewis' unsecured
debts.  For both estates, the reduction of payments to secured
creditors as a result of the plan confirmation will have a
material beneficial impact on the Debtor's ability to service
their debt, including making a distribution to unsecured
creditors.

Buffalo Park will make all payments required to be made on the
Effective Date from its estate's cash.  Buffalo Park estimates
that the amount required to be paid on the Effective Date will be
$15,000, which amount is or will be on Deposit the debtor-in-
possession account, to pay administrative claims.

To fund the Plan beyond the Effective Date, the Buffalo Park will
continue its operations and distribute payments in accordance with
the terms of the Plan.

The hearing on the Disclosure Statement has been continued to Nov.
20, 2013, at 11:30 a.m.

The Lewis Debtors were ordered to file an amended disclosure
statement and to serve redline copies on Objectors Mutual of
Omaha, Glenelk Association, Northstar Bank, and Bank of the West
no later than Oct. 15, 2013.  Objectors may have until Oct. 25,
2013, to file further objections.  If no objections are filed, the
Debtors may move the Court to vacate the continued hearing and
issue a scheduling order on confirmation.

           About Buffalo Park Development Properties

Buffalo Park Development Properties, Inc., filed a Chapter 11
petition (Bankr. D. Colo. Case No. 13-17669) on May 7, 2013.
Ronald P. Lewis signed the petition as owner and CEO.  Buffalo
Park disclosed $20,777,601 assets and $11,294,567 liabilities in

U.S. Trustee Richard A. Wieland has been unable to appoint an
official committee of unsecured creditors in the Debtor's Chapter
11 case because there were too few unsecured creditors who were
willing to serve on the creditors' committee.


BUFFALO PARK: Seeks Expansion of Authority Granted to Boog Cruser
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Debtors Ronald and Carol Lewis ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to
expand the authority granted to Special Counsel Boog & Cruser,
P.C., to include representation of the Lewis Debtors in non-
bankruptcy matters, specifically including the vehicle accident
involving Carol Lewis that occurred on June 7, 2013.

Special Counsel's hourly rate and terms of retention remain the
same as those disclosed in the application.

the Lewis Debtors to employ Special Counsel "to provide non-
bankruptcy legal services, including land use and easement

CASTLETON PLAZA: Justices Won't Hear Absolute Priority Dispute
--------------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that the U.S. Supreme Court on Oct. 7 declined to
review the Seventh Circuit's decision finding that bankruptcy
plans that offer new value from insider investors cannot avoid the
absolute priority rule that entitles creditors to full payment
before equity investors can receive anything.

According to the report, the high court's refusal to hear
Castleton Plaza LP's challenge to the appellate court's February
ruling in its case against EL-SNPR Notes Holdings LLC is a win for
creditors and a blow to bankrupt entities with insiders that want
to hold onto their business.

CEDA MILLS: 3rd Cir. Affirms Distribution to Minority Shareholders
------------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit tossed an appeal
by Ceda Mills, Inc., and its majority shareholder, Chet Duffy; and
upheld an order by the U.S. District Court for the Western
District of Pennsylvania affirming a final order of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania
instructing Ceda Mills to make distribution payments to minority
shareholders.

Ceda Mills was a company that processed steel at a facility in New
Castle, Pennsylvania.  Chet Duffy is the controlling shareholder
of Ceda Mills, owning 83% of the company's outstanding shares of
stock. The remaining 17% of the company's stock is held by four
minority shareholders.

In late summer and early autumn 2003, Ceda Mills' facility and
equipment sustained extensive damage from severe thunderstorms,
forcing the company to cease operations. On April 2, 2004, Ceda
Mills filed a voluntary Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition in the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania.  Among
the debtor's most significant assets were claims brought in
adversary proceedings by Ceda Mills against its insurance carriers
for bad faith denial of coverage and property damage relating to
the thunderstorms.  On Oct. 31, 2006, Ceda Mills successfully
negotiated a settlement of some of these claims, resulting in
payment of approximately $14.1 million to Ceda Mills.

As the bankruptcy estate progressed, the Bankruptcy Court became
concerned that conduct by Ceda Mills and Duffy was threatening the
integrity of the bankruptcy process. Among other things, the
Bankruptcy Court learned that Duffy and Ceda Mills had failed to
disclose information concerning the debtor's financial state
(including information about the insurance settlement) to Ceda
Mills' minority shareholders and creditors, thereby failing to
give to these interested parties an accurate disclosure of the
debtor's true financial condition. The Bankruptcy Court also
became concerned about several transfers of money from Ceda Mills'
accounts to Duffy and members of his immediate family.

In February 2010, Ceda Mills requested that the Bankruptcy Court
accept shareholder election forms signed by several minority
shareholders. These forms stated that the minority shareholders
wished to waive any pro rata distribution of excess funds held by
Ceda Mills in exchange for the return of their initial investment
in the company. The Bankruptcy Court declined to accept the
shareholder election forms, reasoning that it made no economic
sense for the minority shareholders to waive their right to the
company's surplus funds.

Instead of accepting the shareholder election forms proffered by
the debtor, the Bankruptcy Court instructed the Office of the
United States Trustee to investigate the circumstances surrounding
the minority shareholders' signing of the shareholder election
forms.

On March 10, 2010, the Trustee filed a report and recommendation
advising that three of the minority shareholders wished to rescind
their previous elections and instead receive their full pro rata
interest in the company's surplus funds. On April 13, 2010, over
the objection of Ceda Mills and Duffy, the Bankruptcy Court
adopted the findings of the Trustee's report and issued an order
that instructed Ceda Mills to distribute excess funds to the
minority shareholders who had elected to receive such
distributions in pro rata amounts equal to each shareholder's
equity interest.

Ceda Mills and Duffy each appealed the Bankruptcy Court's order to
the District Court.  On March 29, 2012, the District Court entered
an order affirming the Bankruptcy Court's April 13, 2010 order.

CENTRAL FEDERAL: Expects to Complete Cleveland Expansion in 2014
----------------------------------------------------------------
Central Federal Corporation announced its expansion into Cleveland
along with enhanced services for its Fairlawn customers.

Subject to regulatory approval, CFC, the parent holding company of
CFBank, expects to finalize the sale of its Fairlawn office
building during October, which will clear the way to allow CFBank
to upgrade its services available for its Fairlawn, Ohio,
customers and in addition establish a banking presence in the
Cleveland market.  CFBank expects to open an office in Cleveland
in January 2014 and is currently seeking to locate in the Chagrin
Blvd. area of Cleveland.

In conjunction with the sale of the Fairlawn office building,
CFBank will relocate its main office branch into a banking office
roughly 200 yards away from its current location.  This new branch
provides drive thru banking capabilities along with a drive up
ATM.  In addition to the highly personalized business and personal
services and relationships which CFBank customers have grown
accustomed to, the short move allows CFBank to further enhance its
customer service capabilities for its local Fairlawn, Ohio
customers.

"We are extremely excited about this unique opportunity to enhance
the level of services for our Fairlawn customers while at the same
time entering the Cleveland marketplace," says Tim O'Dell CEO of
CFBank and CFC.

Bob Hoeweler, Board Chairman comments, "This expansion into
Cleveland is consistent with our overall growth strategy and
objectives.  Several of our customers and shareholders are based
in the greater Cleveland market and as a niche business bank we
are already generating quality full service banking relationships
as well as also making residential loans in the Cleveland market.
We are gratified by the reception which CFBank has received and
the traction which we are gaining in Cleveland."

"Having a Cleveland presence to support our efforts to expand our
business banking and residential mortgage lending business will
raise our visibility and take our relationship banking brand and
unique approach to doing business into Cleveland and put us closer
to our growing customer base there," says Thad Perry, president
and director.

CFBank is an Ohio full service business bank and residential
mortgage lender.  In addition, CFBank delivers full service
personal banking services thru its personalized and relationship
banking style.  Once the Cleveland expansion is complete in early
2014, CFBank will have offices in three major metro Ohio markets
along with two community bank locations in Eastern Ohio, located
in Wellsville and Calcutta both in Columbiana County.

                        About Central Federal

Fairlawn, Ohio-based Central Federal Corporation (Nasdaq: CFBK) is
the holding company for CFBank, a federally chartered savings
association formed in Ohio in 1892.  CFBank has four full-service
banking offices in Fairlawn, Calcutta, Wellsville and Worthington,
Ohio.

In the auditors' report accompanying the consolidated financial
statements for the year ended Dec. 31, 2011, Crowe Horwath LLP, in
Cleveland, Ohio, expressed substantial doubt about the Company's
ability to continue as a going concern.  The Company's auditors
noted that the Holding Company and its wholly owned subsidiary
(CFBank) are operating under regulatory orders that require among
other items, higher levels of regulatory capital at CFBank.  The
Company has suffered significant recurring net losses, primarily
from higher provisions for loan losses and expenses associated
with the administration and disposition of nonperforming assets at
CFBank.  These losses have adversely impacted capital at CFBank
and liquidity at the Holding Company.  At Dec. 31, 2011,
regulatory capital at CFBank was below the amount specified in the
regulatory order.  Failure to raise capital to the amount
specified in the regulatory order and otherwise comply with the
regulatory orders may result in additional enforcement actions or
receivership of CFBank.

The Company incurred a net loss of $3.76 million in 2012 as
compared with a net loss of $5.42 million in 2011.  As of June 30,
2013, the Company had $244.61 million in total assets, $222.30
million in total liabilities and $22.30 million in total
stockholders' equity.

                        Regulatory Matters

On May 25, 2011, Central Federal Corporation and CFBank each
consented to the issuance of an Order to Cease and Desist (the
Holding Company Order and the CFBank Order, respectively, and
collectively, the Orders) by the Office of Thrift Supervision
(OTS), the primary regulator of the Holding Company and CFBank at
the time the Orders were issued.

The Holding Company Order required it, among other things, to: (i)
submit by June 30, 2011, a capital plan to regulators that
establishes a minimum tangible capital ratio commensurate with the
Holding Company's consolidated risk profile, reduces the risk from
current debt levels and addresses the Holding Company's cash flow
needs; (ii) not pay cash dividends, redeem stock or make any other
capital distributions without prior regulatory approval; (iii) not
pay interest or principal on any debt or increase any Holding
Company debt or guarantee the debt of any entity without prior
regulatory approval; (iv) obtain prior regulatory approval for
changes in directors and senior executive officers; and (v) not
enter into any new contractual arrangement related to compensation
or benefits with any director or senior executive officer without
prior notification to regulators.

The CFBank Order required CFBank to have by Sept. 30, 2011, and
maintain thereafter, 8% Tier 1 (Core) Capital to adjusted total
assets and 12% Total Capital to risk weighted assets.  CFBank will
not be considered well-capitalized as long as it is subject to
individual minimum capital requirements.

CFBank did not comply with the higher capital ratio requirements
by the Sept. 30, 2011, required date.


CHRISTIAN BROTHERS: Nov. 15 Hearing on Adequacy of Plan Outline
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Bankruptcy Court will convene a hearing on Nov. 15, 2013, at
10 a.m., to consider the adequacy of information in the Disclosure
Statement explaining The Christian Brothers' Institute, et al.'s
Chapter 11 Plan.  Objections, if any, are due Nov. 8.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Aug. 27, 2013,
the Debtors and the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors
co-proposed a bankruptcy-exit plan made possible following an
"allocation plan" negotiated with 75% of sexual abuse claimants.
The Joint Chapter 11 Plan of Reorganization was filed Aug. 22.

According to the explanatory disclosure statement, holders of
sexual abuse claims (Class 4) will have the option of being
treated in one of two ways: (i) payment from the Trust utilizing
the allocation plan or (ii) commencing or continuing litigation
against the Debtors in a court of appropriate jurisdiction.
Holders of Class 4 Claims must make an election of their treatment
on their ballot.  Absent any election, the holder will be paid in
accordance with the allocation plan.  Holders of allowed sexual
abuse claims who elect the allocation plan alternative will be
paid no less than $5,000.

Holders of allowed fraud claims (Class 5) will receive $10,000
from the trust.  Holders of allowed physical abuse claims (Class
6) will receive $500.  Holders of Allowed General Unsecured Claims
(Class 8) will receive their pro rata share of $50,000.

Holders of allowed Penalty Claims (Class 9), and abuse related
contingent contribution/reimbursement/indemnity claims (Class 10)
will receive no distribution under the Plan.  Classes 9 and 10 are
impaired and deemed to reject the Plan.

The Trust is a "qualified settlement fund" ("QSF") within the
meaning Treasury Regulations enacted under Internal Revenue Code
Section 486B(g).  The cash required to fund the Trust, which will
pay holders of Class 4, 5 and 6 Claims, will come from

    (i) $13.442 million of cash from the Debtors,

   (ii) $3.2 million of cash from Providence Washington
        Insurance Co.,

  (iii) sales of real property owned by the Debtors,

   (iv) the prosecution and settlement of lawsuits which
        are property of the Debtors' Estates, and

    (v) certain funds that may be received from Non-Settling
        Insurers and Participating Parties.

The cash required to fund payments for Professional Fees and
Classes 3 and 8 Claims will come from the Debtors and/or the
Reorganized Debtors.

CITYCENTER HOLDINGS: Fitch Rates $1.8BB Credit Facility 'BB-'
-------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings assigns a rating of 'BB-/RR2' to CityCenter
Holdings, LLC's (CityCenter) proposed $1.8 billion credit
facility. Fitch also upgrades CityCenter's Issuer Default Rating
(IDR) to 'B' from 'B-', existing first-lien debt to 'BB/RR1' from
'BB-/RR1' and second-lien debt to 'B/RR4' from 'B-/RR4. The Rating
Outlook is Stable.

The new facility will consist of a $1.7 billion term loan B
maturing in 2020 and a $75 million revolver maturing 2018.
Proceeds along with cash on hand will be used to refinance
CityCenter's outstanding $1.86 billion in first and second-lien
notes.

Ratings Could Be Withdrawn

The new credit facility rating is based on publicly available
information and discussions with management. Following the
execution of the refinancing transaction, periodic financial
information for CityCenter may only be provided to lenders. Fitch
is likely to withdraw ratings if it does not have access to the
periodic financial information shared with lenders and the
executed credit agreement.

Rating Drivers

The IDR upgrade to 'B' reflects CityCenter's ability to
successfully grow into its capital structure since opening
December 2009. CityCenter's gross leverage as of June 30, 2013 is
manageable at 6.8x, and Fitch expects leverage to decline to below
6x by year-end. The entertainment complex generates a healthy FCF
cushion, which will expand with the proposed refinancing. The 'B'
IDR also recognizes CityCenter's high asset quality and premium
location on the Las Vegas Strip, for which Fitch continues to have
a constructive outlook.

Fitch estimates CityCenter's pro forma 2013 year-end gross
leverage at 5.6x, which is solid for its 'B' IDR, given the
business risks. The leverage calculation uses Fitch's 2013 EBITDA
forecast for CityCenter of $301.5 million. The property is largely
ramped up at this point so further de-leveraging will be driven
more by reduction in debt. The potential sale of Crystals, sale of
remaining condo units and FCF may help facilitate further debt
reduction.

Management recently stated that they are holding off on selling
Crystals, although at present Fitch thinks the retail complex can
sell for around $650 million (LTM EBITDA at a 5.5% capitalization
rate). As of the July 2013, CityCenter had four penthouse units at
Veer left and 89 units remaining in Mandarin Oriental. Fitch's
base case estimates proceeds from these units in excess of $100
million. Fitch estimates CityCenter's run-rate FCF at above $150
million.

CityCenter's liquidity is strong. Fitch expects the $75 million
revolver will remain undrawn at the time the transaction closes.
The nearest maturity will be the term loan in 2020.

On a standalone basis CityCenter's IDR is largely bound to the 'B'
category due to its concentration in the high-end segment on the
Las Vegas Strip. Also pressuring the ratings is the risk that the
JV sponsors may initiate a leveraging event as the credit profile
improves further. Plausible leveraging transactions may include
paying debt funded dividends or MGM Resort International (MGM)
leveraging CityCenter to fund a consideration payment to Infinity
World (IW) while acquiring IW's half.

CityCenter is a 50/50 JV between MGM and IW. MGM does not
guarantee CityCenter's debt and MGM's operating profile has a high
correlation with CityCenter (i.e. both have high exposure to the
Las Vegas Strip). These factors argue for not linking the ratings
between the entities. However, Fitch recognizes CityCenter's
strategic importance to MGM. CityCenter is a premium property in
cluster of MGM's wholly-owned properties and is part of MGM's
loyalty program. MGM's IDR migrating into the 'BB' category (now
at 'B' with a Positive Outlook) may provide a one notch uplift to
CityCenter's IDR.

Fitch remains positive on the Las Vegas Strip. CityCenter should
benefit from increasing convention mix (2014 bookings are solid)
and low hotel room capacity increase at least through 2017. On a
negative side, international play volume, which has held up well
in recent years, has been soft more recently with baccarat drop
down 5.7% year-to-date. CityCenter has sizable exposure to this
segment.

Transaction Ratings

The 'RR2' Recovery Rating on the new facility incorporates Fitch's
calculation of recovery in an event of default at the high end of
the 71%-90% range.

Fitch uses sum of parts approach to value CityCenter at $1.7
billion in its recovery scenario. Fitch values Aria at $1.2
billion by applying an 8x multiple to the LTM EBITDA stressed at
35%. Fitch values Vdara at approx. $135 million and Crystals at
roughly $335 million by applying stressed capitalization rates of
8% and 12%, respectively, on LTM EBITDA stressed by 25% each.
Fitch values Mandarin Oriental, which generates roughly break-even
EBITDA, at $98 million, or $250,000 per room. Fitch also subtracts
about $45 million for potential ongoing development and
administration expenses, which are largely related to the Pernini
lawsuit.

Fitch's recovery analysis assumes a long time horizon until a
potential default inflection point since there are no near-term
catalysts for a default (i.e. no near-term maturities and healthy
FCF). The long time horizon is reflected in high stress levels
Fitch applies to CityCenter's operating components when
calculating EV. Fitch makes standard assumptions, including a full
draw on the revolver at the time of default and 10% of EV for
administrative claims.

Rating Sensitivities

These factors, individually or combined, may lead to an upgrade of
the IDR to 'B+' or a Positive Outlook:

-- Gross leverage being reduced to below 5x and MGM publicly
   stating leverage targets for CityCenter that support leverage
   remaining below 5x;

-- MGM's IDR migrating to the 'BB' category may provide a one
   notch uplift to CityCenter's IDR; an upgrade of MGM's IDR to
   'B+' would be positively factored into CityCenter's IDR but
   would probably not be enough to be a catalyst for an upgrade;

-- Positive rating action would likely hinge on Fitch maintaining
   a constructive view on the Las Vegas Strip.

The IDR will likely remain in the 'B' category for the foreseeable
future given the business concentration risk plus the uncertainty
with respect to MGM's and IW's capital structure plans for
CityCenter.

These factors, individually or combined, may lead to a downgrade
of the IDR to 'B-' or a Negative Outlook:

-- Leverage increasing, either due to a severe negative trend or
   a recapitalization by the JV owners, above 7.5x on gross basis
   (there is tolerance for leverage to exceed 7.5x temporarily
   due to table hold issues);

-- FCF run-rate declining below $50 million;

-- Sharp and/or pro-longed operating decline due to severe
   economic conditions or changes in the competitive environment.

Fitch has taken the following rating actions:

CityCenter Holdings, LLC

-- IDR upgraded to 'B' from 'B-';
-- Proposed $1.7 billion term loan assigned 'BB-/RR2';
-- Proposed $75 million revolver assigned 'BB-/RR2';
-- Existing revolver upgraded to 'BB/RR1' from 'BB-/RR1;
-- First-lien notes upgraded to 'BB/RR1' from 'BB-/RR1;
-- Second-lien notes upgraded to 'B/RR4' from 'B-/RR4'.

CODA HOLDINGS: Ex-Workers Say Plan Gives Free Pass to PE Firm
-------------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that the putative class of former employees suing
defunct electric carmaker Coda Holdings Inc. for alleged improper
layoffs balked on Oct. 4 at the company's Chapter 11 liquidation
plan, which they argue locks them out of taking action against the
private equity firm that has since bought the debtor.

According to the report, in a preliminary objection filed in the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware, Tony Bulchak -
- who filed a U.S. Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification
Act lawsuit against Coda claiming he and scores of others were
laid off without warning.

the sale process to take 45 days to complete.

FCO MA CODA Holdings LLC, an affiliate of Fortress Investment
Group, is leading a consortium of lenders intending to provide DIP
financing to enable the Company's energy storage business to
remain fully operational during the restructuring process.  The

significant amount of secured indebtedness: secured notes of with
principal in the amount of $59.1 million; term loans in the
principal amount of $12.6 million; and a bridge loan with $665,000
outstanding.  FCO and other bridge loan lenders have "enhanced
priority" over other secured noteholders that did not participate

Jeffrey M. Schlerf, Esq., John H. Strock, Esq., and L. John Bird,
Esq., at Fox Rothschild LLP are the proposed counsel for the
Debtors.

CROSSOVER FINANCIAL: Disclosure Statement Hearing on Nov. 6
-----------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Colorado will
convene a hearing on Nov. 6, 2013, at 10:30 a.m., to consider the
adequacy of information in the Corrected Fourth Amended Disclosure
Statement explaining Crossover Financial I, LLC's Amended Plan of
Reorganization dated Aug. 21, 2013.

At the hearing, the Court will also consider the objection of
creditor Ross A. Reineke.  Thomas F. Quinn, Esq., on behalf of Mr.
Reineke, stated that the Debtor's Plan is not confirmable, because
it is not proposed in good faith.

According to the Disclosure Statement filed with the Fourth
Amended Plan, the Fourth Amended Plan addressed the objections to
the Third Amended Plan.  While not altering the proposed
distributions to creditors, the Fourth Amended Plan provides for
the conveyance of the estate assets, primarily the real estate, to
the Liquidating Trust and withdraws the proposed sale to Rivers
Development, Inc.

As a result, if Rivers Development pursues its efforts to acquire
the property, either under terms similar to those set forth in the
Third Amended Plan, or otherwise, any allegations that the
Debtor's manager, Mitchell Yellen, is somehow influencing the sale
become moot, as the sale is subject to the independent evaluation
of the Liquidating Trustee.

A copy of the corrected Disclosure Statement is available for free
at http://bankrupt.com/misc/CROSSOVER_FINANCIAL_4ds_corrected.pdf

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Aug. 28, 2013,
under the Fourth Amended Plan, the Liquidating Trustee will
determine the best method for selling the property, which includes
the authority to propose an auction procedure, in the exercise of
the Liquidating Trustee's reasonable business judgment.

Pursuant to the new Plan, the 108 Noteholder claimants in Class 5,
owed a total of $21,454,000, will receive the balance of the
proceeds of sale of the Real Property after the payment of
unclassified administrative expenses and the secured claims in
Classes 2, 3, and 4.

Pursuant to Section 506 of the Bankruptcy Code, to the extent that
proceeds from the sale of the Real Property are insufficient to
pay the principal amount of the promissory notes in full, any
unpaid principal balance, together with accrued interest and other
charges will be treated as a Class 11 Unsecured Claim.

Class 11 consists of any unsecured portion of claims in Classes 2
through 10 as a result of the bifurcation of the respective claims
under Section 506 of the Bankruptcy Code or any other portion of
the claims that may disallowed as secured claims.

It is not expected that unsecured claims will receive
distributions under the plan.

Upon completion of the distributions to creditors in Classes 2
through 11, Mitchell Yellen's membership interest will be
cancelled and the Equity Claims will not receive any distributions
under the plan and will not receive any property under the plan.

C. Randel Lewis, Principal and Founder of Western Receiver,
Trustee & Consulting Services Ltd., will serve as the Liquidating
Trustee and deemed to have been appointed as representative of the
estate by the Bankruptcy Court pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Section
1123(b)(3)(B).  Mr. Lewis will be entitled to compensation for his
services on an hourly basis at his normal hourly rate of $385 per
hour.

                    About Crossover Financial I

Crossover Financial I, LLC, based in Elizabeth, Colorado, was
formed on Aug. 12, 2005.  Mitchell B. Yellen is the manager and
sole member.  The Company was formed for the purpose of raising
funds through a Private Placement Memorandum to be loaned to an
entity known as HPR, LLC, in connection with the acquisition and
development of 440 acres of real property located near Monument,
Colorado.

HPR consisted of three members: Colorado Commercial Builders, Inc.
(37.5%); DJT, LLC (20.0%); and Yellen Family Partnership, LLLP
(42.5%).  Mitchell Yellen held an interest in the Yellen Family
Partnership, LLLP.

The project stalled primarily as a result of a collapse in the
residential real estate development market in 2007 and potential
developers pulled out of the project.  There has been no
further development activity on the Real Property since 2007.

Faced with the prospect of a lengthy foreclosure proceeding, the
Debtor entered into to an agreement with HPR whereby the Real
Property was transferred to the Debtor by way of a deed-in-lieu
of foreclosure.  Upon acquiring the Real Property, the Debtor
attempted to bring in additional developers to continue the
project but those efforts were unsuccessful.

The Company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. D. Colo. Case
No. 11-24257) on June 15, 2011.  Judge Sidney B. Brooks presides
over the case.

Stephen C. Nicholls, Esq., at Nicholls & Associates, P.C., in
Denver, serves as bankruptcy counsel.  In its petition, the Debtor
estimated assets and debts of $10 million to $50 million.  The
petition was signed by Mitchell B. Yellen.  Karen McClaflin of
Home Source Realty, LLC, Colorado acts as real estate broker for
the Estate.

An official unsecured creditors committee has not been appointed.


CUMULUS MEDIA: Offering up to $92 Million Class A Common Shares
---------------------------------------------------------------
Cumulus Media Inc. has commenced an underwritten public offering,
subject to market and other conditions, of $80 million of its
Class A common stock pursuant to an effective shelf registration
statement.  In addition, Cumulus expects to grant the underwriter
an option for a period of 30 days to purchase up to an additional
$12 million of the Class A common stock.

Cumulus intends to use approximately $77.6 million of the net
proceeds from the offering to redeem all outstanding shares of the
Company's Series B preferred stock, including accrued and unpaid
dividends.  The remaining net proceeds from the offering, if any,
including any net proceeds from the underwriter's exercise of its
option, are expected to be placed in the Company's corporate
treasury and used for general corporate purposes.

RBC Capital Markets is serving as the sole book-running manager.

                         About Cumulus Media

Founded in 1998, Atlanta, Georgia-based Cumulus Media Inc.
(NASDAQ: CMLS) -- http://www.cumulus.com/-- is the second largest
operator of radio stations, currently serving 110 metro markets
with more than 525 stations.  In the third quarter of 2011,
Cumulus Media purchased Citadel Broadcasting, adding more than 200
stations and increasing its reach in 7 of the Top 10 US metros.
Cumulus also acquired the Citadel/ABC Radio Network, which serves
4,000+ radio stations and 121 million listeners, in the
transaction

Cumulus Media said in its annual report for the year ended
Dec. 31, 2011, that lenders under the 2011 Credit Facilities have
taken security interests in substantially all of the Company's
consolidated assets, and the Company has pledged the stock of
certain of its subsidiaries to secure the debt under the 2011
Credit Facilities.  If the lenders accelerate the repayment of
borrowings, the Company may be forced to liquidate certain assets
to repay all or part of such borrowings, and the Company cannot
assure that sufficient assets will remain after it has paid all of
the borrowings under those 2011 Credit Facilities.  If the Company
was unable to repay those amounts, the lenders could proceed
against the collateral granted to them to secure that indebtedness
and the Company could be forced into bankruptcy or liquidation.

Cumulus Media put AR Broadcasting Holdings Inc. and three other
units to Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case No.
11-13674) in 2011 after struggling to pay off debts that topped
$97 million as of June 30, 2011.  Holdings estimated debts between
$50 million and $100 million but said assets are worth less than
$50 million.  AR Broadcasting operated radio stations in Missouri
and Texas.

As of June 30, 2013, the Company had $3.69 billion in total
assets, $3.35 billion in total liabilities, $72.87 million in
total redeemable preferred stock, and $262.92 million in total
stockholders' equity.

                           *     *     *

Standard & Poor's Ratings Services in October 2011 affirmed is 'B'
corporate credit rating on Cumulus Media.

"The ratings reflect continued economic weakness and higher post-
acquisition leverage than we initially expected," said Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Jeanne Shoesmith. "They also reflect the
combined company's sizable presence in both large and midsize
markets throughout the U.S."

As reported by the TCR on April 3, 2013, Moody's Investors Service
downgraded Cumulus Media, Inc.'s Corporate Family Rating to B2
from B1 and Probability of Default Rating to B2-PD from B1-PD.
The downgrades reflect Moody's view that the pace of debt
repayment and delevering will be slower than expected.  Although
EBITDA for 4Q2012 reflects growth over the same period in the
prior year, results fell short of Moody's expectations.

DETROIT, MI: Protective Order Filed, Expedited Hearing Sought
-------------------------------------------------------------
BankruptcyData reported that the State of Michigan filed with the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court a motion for entry of an order that limits
enquiry relating to emergency manager candidates.

The motion explains, "The State anticipates that the State
Deponents may be asked to identify individuals other than Kevyn
Orr who were actively considered for the position of emergency
manager for the City of Detroit.  Each of the individuals, other
than Mr. Orr, who were actively considered for the position were
given assurances by the Governor's office that their identities
would remain confidential.  Disclosure of the names of emergency
manager candidates would not only violate their privacy and the
assurances of confidentiality made to them but might also be
damaging to certain of the individuals in their current positions
because their current employers are not aware that these
candidates had expressed an interest in the position.  Further,
certain of the individuals are elected officials whose re-
electability could be affected by disclosure of their identities."

The State also filed a separate motion to expedite the hearing of
the protective order motion for October 8, 2013.

                     About Detroit, Michigan

The city of Detroit, Michigan, weighed down by more than
$18 billion in accrued obligations, sought municipal bankruptcy
protection on July 18, 2013, by filing a voluntary Chapter 9
petition (Bankr. E.D. Mich. Case No. 13-53846).  Detroit listed
more than $1 billion in both assets and debts.

Kevyn Orr, who was appointed in March 2013 as Detroit's emergency
manager, signed the petition.  Detroit is represented by
lawyers at Jones Day and Miller Canfield Paddock and Stone PLC.

Michigan Governor Rick Snyder authorized the bankruptcy filing.

The filing makes Detroit the largest American city to seek
bankruptcy, in terms of population and the size of the debts and
liabilities involved.

The city's $18 billion in debt includes $5.85 billion in special
revenue obligations, $6.4 billion in post-employment benefits,
$3.5 billion for underfunded pensions, $1.13 billion on secured
and unsecured general obligations, and $1.43 billion on pension-
related debt, according to a court filing.  Debt service consumes
42.5 percent of revenue.  The city has 100,000 creditors and
20,000 retirees.

DETROIT, MI: Faces Millions in Bills for Bankruptcy
---------------------------------------------------
Monica Davey, writing for The New York Times, reported that
Detroit, Michigan, is learning that it is expensive to go broke.

According to the report, even as the city wrestles with the $18
billion of debt that has overwhelmed it, Detroit has already been
billed more than $19.1 million by firms hired to sort through that
debt, search for ways to restructure it, and now guide the city
through court. That does not include more costs that the city is
expected to bear for the support staff for its state-appointed
emergency manager, and for another set of lawyers and consultants
to represent city retirees.

"It's just ridiculous," Edward L. McNeil, an official with the
local council of the American Federation of State, County and
Municipal Employees, said of the mounting costs, the report
related.  "The only thing that's getting done is that these people
are getting paid big-time while the citizens of Detroit are
getting ripped off."

The uncharted scale of Detroit's bankruptcy -- it is the largest
municipal bankruptcy filing in the nation's history in terms of
both the city's population and its debt -- suggests that it may
also become the costliest, experts say, the report further
related.  City officials offer no estimate for a final tab, but
some bankruptcy experts say the collapse could ultimately cost
Detroit taxpayers as much as $100 million. As of last week, 15
firms had contracts with the city that could total as much as
$60.6 million, city records show.

Some lawyers and other consultants are accepting discounted fees,
and a fee examiner has been appointed to ensure that bills stay
within reason, the report added.  Still, the soaring costs are a
jolt to retirees and creditors bracing for cuts to payments they
once expected.

DETROIT, MI: Citizens Living Among Blight Resist Moving

Michael Bathon, substituting for Bloomberg bankruptcy columnist

parcels and 700,000 people on 139 square miles (360 square
kilometers) after losing more than half its population since the
1950s.

According to the report, planners envision farms and other
nonresidential uses for empty land, and creating population-dense
areas where it's easier to offer services.  Yet some residents
don't want to move.

DETRIOT ACADEMY: Moody's Lowers 2001A Revenue Bonds Rating to Ca
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded to Ca from Caa2 the
rating on the Michigan Municipal Bond Authority's Public School
Academy Facilities Program Revenue Bonds (Detroit Academy of Arts
and Sciences), Series 2001A. The outlook on the rating remains
negative. The bonds are a general obligation of the Detroit
Academy of Arts and Sciences (DAAS), payable from all available
revenues of the charter school. The bonds carry a pledge of state
aid, which is the academy's only source of unrestricted revenue;
monthly installment payments of state aid are transferred directly
to the Michigan Finance Authority (MFA) from the state treasurer
pursuant to a lease financing agreement. The MFA is the successor
to the Michigan Municipal Bond Authority (MMBA), which had issued
the bonds in 2001. The MFA has assigned its rights and interest in
the monthly payments to the trustee, the Bank of New York Mellon
Trust Company, N.A. (long-term issuer rating Aa1, rating under
review).

Summary Rating Rationale:

The downgrade to Ca incorporates both the academy's October 1,
2013 default and the expectation that bondholder recovery is
unlikely to exceed 65% of the net present value of remaining debt
service payments, based on enrollment and revenue trends. On
October 1, approximately $600,000 was paid out of the academy's
revenue account on deposit with the trustee, compared to the total
$1.7 million of scheduled principal and interest payment due.
Although over $2 million remains in the academy's debt service
reserve fund (DSRF), no funds were transferred from the DSRF to
complete the October 1 payment.

Moody's ratings represent expected loss, encompassing both default
probability and bondholders' likely post-default recovery. When a
security is in or approaching default, then placement of the
rating will largely depend on the expected recovery to
bondholders. Ratings of defaulted bonds with expected recoveries
of 65-95% will typically be in the Caa range, 35-65% at Ca, and
under 35% at the lowest rating of C. In the rare case when
expected recoveries exceed 95%, such ratings will be in the single
B range.

Maintenance of the negative outlook incorporates the expectation
that continuation of a generally negative enrollment trend could
place further pressure on both the expected bondholder recovery
and the academy's very lean financial position. Enrollment in
grades K-8 has fallen from 1,674 in 2004 to an estimated 1,040 in
the current fiscal year, representing a total decline of 38%. The
education environment in the City of Detroit (GO rated Caa3,
rating under review) is characterized by a high degree of
competition as a large number of charter schools now enroll an
estimated 40% of the city's student population. Future declines in
enrollment would reduce the academy's annual operating revenues
per Michigan's enrollment-based funding formula, further widening
the gap between available resources and required debt service
payments. More substantial declines in enrollment could pressure
the academy's ability to remain in business. Either scenario would
result in a larger bondholder loss.

Challenges:

- Significant drop in enrollment due to closure of high school,
   with a direct negative impact on state aid revenues pledged to
   debt service

- Statutory restriction on the use of more than 20% of annual
   state aid revenue to repay debt

- Strained financial position that could weaken in the case of
   further enrollment loss

- Highly competitive market for primary education within the City
   of Detroit that can result in significant and negative
   fluctuations in enrollment

Strengths:

- Secure debt payment mechanism including direct transfer of
   state aid from the state treasurer to the trustee

What Could Move the Rating Up:

- Material growth in enrollment that supports the collection of
   additional revenue and improved bondholder recovery estimates

What Could Move the Rating Down:

- Further loss of enrollment that pressures annual revenues or
   the academy's ability to continue to function, both of which
   would result in downward estimate of bondholder recovery

Jeoffrey L. Burtch -- the chapter 7 trustee for AE Liquidation,
Inc. (f/k/a Eclipse Aviation Corporation) and its wholly owned
subsidiary EIRB Liquidation, Inc. (f/k/a Eclipse IRB Sunport, LLC)
-- failed in his bid to avoid preferential transfers against

that Texstars has established that the Transfers were within the
ordinary course of business of the parties and not subject to
avoidance by the Trustee.

Eclipse developed and manufactured private jets known as the

designed specifically for the Eclipse 500.  Within the 90 days
preceding the Petition Date, Eclipse made nine transfers to
Texstars totaling $781,702.

v. TEXSTARS, INC., Defendant, Adv. Proc. No. 10-55502 (Bankr. D.
Del.).

                      About Eclipse Aviation

Albuquerque, New Mexico-based Eclipse Aviation Corporation --
http://www.eclipseaviation.com/-- manufactured six-passenger
planes powered by two Pratt & Whitney turbofan engines.  The
Company and Eclipse IRB Sunport, LLC sought chapter 11
protection (Bankr. D. Del. Case No. 08-13031) on Nov. 25, 2008,
represented by lawyers at Allen & Overy LLP, and estimating
assets of less than $500 $500 million and debts of more than
$1 billion.

The Debtor sought to sell all of its assets pursuant to proposed
bid procedures.  The Court approved the bid procedures, with
substantial modification, on Dec. 23, 2008.  On Jan. 15, 2009,
Over and Out, Inc., and other customers, commenced an adversary
proceeding (Bankr. D. Del. Adv. Pro. No. 09-50029) asserting that
the Debtor breached its Aircraft Deposit Agreements, converted
their deposits, and breached its fiduciary duty.  On Jan. 23,
2009, the Court entered an order authorizing the sale of
substantially all of the Debtor's assets to EclipseJet Aviation
International, Inc., finding it had presented the highest and best
offer.  In conjunction with that sale, the Court directed that
$3.2 million of the sale proceeds be set held in escrow pending
resolution of the adversary proceeding.  Despite approval, the
sale to EclipseJet was never consummated.

As a result, on Mar. 5, 2009, the case was converted to a chapter
7 liquidation proceeding and Jeoffrey L. Burtch was appointed
trustee.  The Trustee renewed efforts to sell the Debtor's assets.
On Aug. 28, 2009, the Court authorized the Trustee to sell the
Debtor's assets to Eclipse Aerospace, Inc., for $20 million in
cash and a $20 million note.  Once again, as a result of the
Customers' objection to the sale, the Court directed that $3.2
million of the sale proceeds be set aside pending resolution of
the adversary proceeding.  The sale to Eclipse Aerospace, Inc.,
closed on Sept. 4, 2009.

Following the sale, the Debtors change their names to AE
Liquidation, Inc., for Eclipse Aviation Corporation) and EIRB
Liquidation, Inc., for Eclipse IRB Sunport, LLC).

FIFTH THIRD: Fitch Raises Preferred Stock Rating to 'BB+'
---------------------------------------------------------
Following its large regional bank peer review, Fitch Ratings has
upgraded Fifth Third Bancorp's (FITB) long-term Issuer Default
Rating (IDR) to 'A' from 'A-'. The Rating Outlook is Stable.
Please refer to the release titled 'Fitch Takes Rating Actions on
Its Large Regional Bank Group Following Peer Review' dated Oct. 8,
2013) for a discussion of rating actions taken on the large
regional banks.

Key Rating Drivers - IDR & VR

Fitch upgraded FITB's IDR reflecting the company's strong earnings
profile. The company's earnings continue to trend above peer
averages, and provide for good capital generation. Even excluding
the large Vantiv-related gain in 2Q13, the company's return on
average assets in 1H13 of approximately 1.44% was well above the
large regional peer average of 1.16%.

FITB's capital profile remains solid with an estimated Tier 1
common ratio under Basel III of 9.1%, well above the 7% fully
phased-in requirement of 7%, and roughly in line with large
regional peer averages.

FITB remains predominately core funded, with core deposits
(defined as total deposits less jumbo deposits) representing a
substantial 83% of total funding as of June 30, 2013. Similar to
industry trends, FITB's funding profile is strong, partially
reflective of a weak economic recovery. Further, holding company
liquidity remains robust with considerable cash balances, and no
near-term maturities until 2016.

Although the company's NPAs are elevated from historical levels,
actual losses have been manageable as of late, and reserve levels
are still relatively high. Further, a large percentage of the
accruing troubled debt restructurings (included in NPAs) are
current on principal and interest payments. Excluding TDRs, FITB's
level of NPAs to loans and foreclosed real estate falls slightly
below peer averages.

Rating Sensitivities - IDR & VR

Given FITB's ratings at their new higher level, Fitch does not
anticipate any further ratings upward momentum over the near- to
intermediate-term given the high absolute levels. Further movement
upward would be predicated on a material decline in overall
problem asset levels, combined with the maintenance above earnings
profile. Further, while FITB's capital profile is currently
considered adequate in light of its risk profile, any upgrade in
ratings would likely also be dependent on an above average capital
profile, that provides more than ample loss cushion for unexpected
losses.

Conversely, a reversal in FITB's superior earnings profile and
asset quality trends, combined with a material deterioration in
the liquidity and capital profile could pressure FITB's earnings.

Fitch has upgraded the following ratings:

Fifth Third Bancorp

-- Long-term IDR to 'A' from 'A-'; Outlook Stable;
-- Viability Rating to 'a' from 'a-';
-- Preferred stock to 'BB+' from 'BB';
-- Senior debt to 'A' from 'A-';
-- Subordinated debt to 'A-' from 'BBB+'.

Fifth Third Bank

-- Long-term IDR to 'A' from 'A-'; Outlook Stable;
-- Viability Rating to 'a' from 'a-';
-- Senior debt to 'A' from 'A-';
-- Subordinated debt to 'A-' from 'BBB+';
-- Long-term deposits to 'A+' from 'A'.

Fifth Third Capital Trust IV

-- Preferred to 'BBB-' from 'BB+'.

Fitch has affirmed the following ratings:

Fifth Third Bancorp

-- Short-term IDR at 'F1';
-- Short-term debt at 'F1';
-- Support at '5';
-- Support floor at 'NF'.

Fifth Third Bank

-- Short-term IDR at 'F1';
-- Short-term deposits at 'F1';
-- Support at '5';
-- Support floor at 'NF'.

The Rating Outlook is Stable.

FLABEG SOLAR: Buncher Granted Relief From Automatic Stay
--------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Carlota M. Bohm granted The Buncher Company
relief from stay in the Chapter 11 case of Flabeg Solar US
Corporation to seek enforcement of its remedies at law or in
equity under applicable nonbankruptcy law with respect to the
Debtor's property.

Flabeg US opposed the request.  UniCredit Luxembourg S.A., agent
for a syndicate of lenders, also filed a limited response to
Buncher's bid.

Buncher contends that the automatic stay is not applicable to
protect any alleged interest claimed by the Debtor in certain
property leased by Buncher to another entity, Flabeg GmbH, but
occupied by the Debtor pursuant to a sublease with GmbH.  In the
alternative, Buncher asserts that relief from stay is appropriate
under either 11 U.S.C. Sections 362(d)(1) or (2).

UniCredit's Limited Response does not oppose the relief sought by
Buncher, but rather, consistent with its other filings, alleges
the impossibility of reorganization of the Debtor.  The Debtor,
however, asserts that the stay applies and that relief from stay
is not warranted under the circumstances.

The bankruptcy case was commenced on April 2, 2013, by the filing
of a Chapter 7 Involuntary Petition (Bankr. W.D. Pa. Case No.
13-21415) against Flabeg US.  Following several extensions to
answer the Involuntary Petition, on Aug. 9, 2013, the Court
entered an Order for Relief as of Aug. 2, 2013 and converted the
instant proceeding from a case under Chapter 7 to Chapter 11.

GATEHOUSE MEDIA: Combined Plan & Outline Hearing Set for Nov. 6
---------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Mary F. Walrath of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Delaware scheduled a hearing on Nov. 6, 2013, at 1:00

Judge Walrath stated that the U.S. Trustee need not, and will not,
convene a meeting of creditors pursuant to Section 341(a) of the
Bankruptcy Code if the Plan is confirmed within 60 days of the
Petition Date.

Prior to the Petition Date and pursuant to a plan support
agreement, GateHouse solicited votes on the Plan over from holders
of claims under its 2007 secured credit facility and certain
related interest rate swaps.  The Plan was accepted by the only
impaired class of creditors entitled to vote on it.  Specifically,
79 out of the 80 holders of secured debt entitled to vote holding
an aggregate amount of $1,199,317,153 (representing 99.99% of the
total secured debt) voted to accept the Plan.  No creditors voted
to reject the Plan.

Pension, trade and all other unsecured creditors of GateHouse
would not be impaired under the Plan, and their votes were not
solicited.  GateHouse's common stock would be canceled under the
Plan, and holders of secured debt would have the option of
receiving a cash distribution equal to 40% of their claims, or
stock in New Media Investment Group Inc., a new holding company
that will own GateHouse and Local Media Group.

The Plan hinges on the combination of Gatehouse with assets of Dow
Jones Local Media Group, which Newcastle Investment Corp. bought
for $87 million.

from October 25, 2013 to May 1, 2014.  The Company has agreed to
forbear from taking any further steps to exercise its rights or
remedies against the Debtors under the Letter Agreement and
related security documents, or from taking any further steps in
the legal proceedings commenced on August 19, 2013, until or
unless a termination event within the meaning of the Forbearance
Agreement occurs.  A breach by the Debtors of any covenant in the

the Company has delivered notices of default to the Debtors.  The
third tranche of $250,000 is payable on May 1, 2014.


HALIFAX REGIONAL: Moody's Affirms 'Ba3' Rating to Bonds
-------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has affirmed the Ba3 rating assigned to
Halifax Regional Medical Center's bonds. The affirmation reflects
stable balance sheet reserves and improved operating performance
through ten months FY 2013. The outlook is negative, reflecting
continued patient volume declines amid a challenging service area.

Summary Rating Rationale:

The Ba3 rating is attributable to Halifax's small size,
inconsistent, but generally below average operating results, and
high exposure to Medicaid at 19% of gross revenue. Moody's notes,
favorably, that absolute cash has remained relatively steady over
the last few years at nearly $21 million. Although Halifax issued
debt two years ago to support capital projects, the organization's
leverage remains light at approximately 23% debt to revenue,
contributing to stable leverage metrics. However, the outlook
remains negative reflecting the fifth consecutive year of volume
declines. Through ten months FY 2013, inpatient volumes
(admissions plus observation stays) are down 6.5% over the prior
year, contributing to negative revenue growth in interim 2013 and
putting pressure on the organization to constantly cut expenses in
order to maintain cash flow.

Strengths:

* Halifax's cash position has remained stable over the last few
   years, and although small from an absolute perspective,
   liquidity is sufficient with 89 days cash on hand and 103% cash
   to direct debt through ten months FY 2013. Moody's notes that
   the cash position has remained steady in part due to low
   capital spending through FY 2010, and that capital spending in
   2011 and 2012 was partly debt financed.

* North Carolina began a provider fee program in FY 2012, which
   is providing approximately $3 million in net annual benefit to
   Halfiax.

* Halifax's operating performance has improved through 10 months
   FY 2013, with the operating cash flow margin rising to 5.9%
   compared to 3.7% in FY 2012. Moody's notes, however, that
   operating revenue has declined due to patient volume pressure.

* Halifax has implemented a hospitalist program over the last
   several years and has assumed inpatient care for many local
   physicians. Although the program has contributed to higher
   operating expenses (the physicians are employed), it does allow
   Halifax to pursue operational efficiencies in the hospital.

Challenges:

* Through ten months FY 2013, inpatient volumes (admissions plus
   observation stays) are down 6.5% over the prior year,
   contributing to a 2.4% drop in operating revenue. Inpatient
   admissions have dropped in each of the last four fiscal years.
   Although Halifax has an improved operating cash flow margin
   through ten months FY 2013, Moody's believes the long term
   trend of declining volumes and the resulting revenue pressure,
   will make it increasingly difficult to achieve consistent
   operating cash flow margins.

* Small absolute size of the hospital makes it susceptible to
   physician departures, which have contributed to the variation
   in operating performance and patient volume fluctuations

* High exposure to Medicare and Medicaid, comprising a combined
   72% of patient volume in FY 2012

Outlook:

The negative outlook reflects continued volume pressure and
negative revenue growth in FY 2013.

What Could Make the Rating Go Up

Over the near term an upgrade is unlikely given Halifax's recent
variability in performance and declining patient volumes. If
Halifax is able to stem patient volume and revenue declines while
maintaining operating performance at current levels, Moody's would
consider revising the outlook to stable. Over the long term, an
upgrade would be considered if Halifax improves operating
performance and achieves stability in patient volumes.

What Could Make the Rating GO Down

The rating could be downgraded if Halifax's operating performance
deteriorates from current levels, or if cash balances decline.
Additional factors that could result in a downgrade include
material capital or borrowing plans, or loss of key physicians.


HALSEY MINOR: Trustee Seeks to Sell CNET Founder's Cisco Stock
--------------------------------------------------------------
Michael Bathon, substituting for Bloomberg bankruptcy columnist
Bill Rochelle, reports that the court appointed trustee for Halsey
Minor, the CNET Networks Inc. founder who filed for bankruptcy in
May, is seeking court permission to sell Minor's stock in Cisco
Systems Inc.

According to the report, Minor owns 823 shares of Cisco common
stock and has $840 in a Morgan Stanley brokerage account.  The
value of the shares, based on a $23.34 closing price on Sept. 30,
is $19,209, the trustee said in the court papers filed Oct. 4.
The trustee will liquidate the securities and "requests authority
to sell them at any time so long as they are sold at a price
greater than $20 per share," according to the court filing.  The
sale will incur about $101 in brokerage fees.

The report notes that the Internal Revenue Service and the
California Franchise Tax Board, which claim to have liens on
substantially all of Minor's assets, would have liens attached
to the proceeds of the sale, court papers show.  Minor sought
Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection May 24 five years after selling
CNET for $1.8 billion.  He has more than $30 million in assets and
more than $50 million in debt, according to the trustee.  Under
Chapter 7 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code, a trustee is automatically
appointed to handle affairs and liquidate assets for the benefit
of creditors.

The report relates that Minor sold CNET to CBS Corp. in 2008,
netting himself about $200 million, according to CNN Money.  He
lost money on bad bets on real estate and other ventures.  Halsey
Minor's Minor Ventures invested in early stage technology startups
including GrandCentral Communications Inc., which Google Inc.
bought in 2007 for about $65 million and renamed Google Voice.

The case is In re Halsey McLean Minor, 13-bk-23787, U.S.
Bankruptcy Court, Central District of California (Los Angeles).


HEALTH CARE REIT: Fitch Currently Rates Preferred Stock at 'BB+
---------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has assigned the following debt obligation rating to
Health Care REIT, Inc. (NYSE: HCN):

-- $400 million 4.5% senior unsecured notes 'BBB'.

The notes mature in January 2024 and were priced at 98.958% of
their face amount to yield 4.626%. The company will use net
proceeds from the notes offering to repay borrowings under the
company's unsecured revolving credit facility and for general
corporate purposes.

Fitch currently rates the company as follows:

-- Issuer Default Rating (IDR) 'BBB';
-- $2.25 billion unsecured revolving credit facility 'BBB';
-- $738 million senior unsecured term loans 'BBB';
-- $5.4 billion senior unsecured notes 'BBB';
-- $494 million senior unsecured convertible notes 'BBB';
-- $1.0 billion preferred stock 'BB+'.

The Rating Outlook is Stable.

Key Rating Drivers

The ratings reflect HCN's broad healthcare real estate platform,
which generates largely predictable cash flow predominantly from
private pay sources in markets with strong demographics. The
company has projected fixed charge coverage and leverage that are
appropriate for a 'BBB' rated healthcare REIT. HCN also has good
access to capital and a solid liquidity position, including
contingent liquidity from unencumbered assets, and a strong
management team. Credit concerns center on operational volatility
associated with the company's REIT Investment Diversification and
Empowerment Act of 2007 (RIDEA)-related investments and modest
operator concentration.

Predictable Cash Flow

Limited lease rollover risk and structural protections embedded in
HCN's management agreements underpin portfolio cash flow
stability. HCN's lease expiration schedule is well-laddered with
only 12.1% of leases expiring through 2017 (excluding the seniors
housing operating portfolio). In addition, master leases and/or
cross-collateralization arrangements with seniors housing and
healthcare facility operators minimize operators' ability to
selectively renew management agreements for higher performance
assets. Approximately 80% of the portfolio is in the top 31
metropolitan statistical areas or on the East or West coasts,
based on data from the National Investment Center for the Seniors
Housing & Care Industry.

Strong Same-Store Growth

Same-store net operating income (NOI) growth has been solid in the
range of 3.5%-5.0% on a quarterly basis since 4Q'10. Growth was
3.8% in 2Q'13, led by the seniors housing operating portfolio at
8.4%, which represents 34.9% of NOI as of 2Q'13. This contribution
has increased from 17.7% at 2Q'12 following the close of the
Sunrise acquisition earlier this year.

Appropriate Credit Metrics for 'BBB'

Fixed-charge coverage for the trailing 12 months (TTM) ended June
30, 2013 was 2.7x, which is appropriate for the rating, compared
with 2.6x in 2012 and 2.3x in 2011. Fitch projects that coverage
will continue to improve over the next 12-to-24 months, driven by
projected mid-single-digit same-store performance for the seniors
housing operating portfolio and low-single-digit average growth
for the rest of the portfolio, coupled with incremental cash flow
from new investments. In a more adverse case than anticipated by
Fitch, coverage could decline below 2.5x, which is more
commensurate with a 'BBB-' rating for a healthcare REIT.

Net debt-to-TTM recurring operating EBITDA was 6.5x as of June 30,
2013. However, leverage based on annualized 2Q'13 EBITDA
(primarily incorporating HCN's Sunrise investment) was 5.9x, which
is appropriate for the 'BBB' rating. In a more adverse case than
currently anticipated by Fitch, leverage could rise above 6.5x,
which is more appropriate for a 'BBB-' rating for a healthcare
REIT.

Strong Access to Capital and Adequate Liquidity

HCN raised approximately $6 billion of capital in 2012 including
unsecured bonds, unsecured term loans, follow-on common equity and
preferred equity. The company also upsized its credit facility
while increasing the term and lowering the rate. HCN's liquidity
position pro forma for recent capital transactions and the closing
of the Sunrise acquisition is adequate, with total sources of
liquidity covering uses by 1.2x for the period July 1, 2013 to
Dec. 31, 2015. Liquidity coverage would improve to 1.9x if 80% of
secured debt is refinanced.

The company also benefits from a staggered debt maturity schedule.
The company has only 17.8% of total debt maturing through 2015 and
no more than 14% of total debt maturing in any given year through
2019. HCN also has good contingent liquidity. Unencumbered assets
(unencumbered annualized 2Q'13 NOI divided by a stressed 9% cap
rate) to unsecured debt was 2.1x, which is appropriate for the
'BBB' rating.

Increasing RIDEA Exposure

The portfolio exhibits the potential for increased cash flow
volatility from recent investments in RIDEA operating
partnerships. RIDEA NOI has increased to nearly 35% of total
annualized 2Q'13 NOI from 17.7% at 2Q'12. Fitch views the increase
as a moderate credit concern, as increased cash flow volatility is
partially mitigated by the quality of the assets and the favorable
near- to medium-term fundamental outlook for seniors housing.

Modest Reimbursement Risk

Approximately 82% of HCN's portfolio NOI is derived from private
pay sources, a credit positive. This mitigates reimbursement and
regulatory risk, exemplified by the 11.1% reimbursement cut to
skilled nursing facilities mandated by the Centers for Medicare
and Medicaid Services (CMS) in fiscal 2012. The reimbursement cut
was the primary reason for cash flow coverage of skilled nursing
facilities tenants to drop to 1.75x in FY2012 from 2.22x in
FY2011. Healthcare operators are expected to continue to face
reimbursement challenges, particularly given continued government
budget issues.

Moderate Tenant Concentration

As of June 30, 2013, Sunrise Senior Living was the largest tenant,
representing 15.6% of invested capital, with the three largest
tenants representing 33.7%, evidence of moderate tenant
concentration. However, this is mitigated by the solid performance
of these tenants, which operate in well-diversified, attractive
high-barrier-to-entry markets, and with cross-collateralized lease
structures.

Strong Management Team

HCN's management team has successfully managed the rapid growth of
the company while maintaining solid credit metrics and portfolio
performance. The company has demonstrated a commitment to pre-
funding acquisitions in a leverage-neutral manner for the benefit
of unsecured bondholders.

Stable Outlook

The Stable Rating Outlook centers on HCN's normalized credit
metrics that are appropriate for the rating coupled with strong
liquidity and access to capital. In addition, Fitch expects
healthcare real estate to continue to benefit from positive
demographic trends and limited new supply.

Preferred Stock Notching

The two-notch differential between HCN's IDR and its preferred
stock rating is consistent with Fitch's criteria for corporate
entities with a 'BBB' IDR. These preferred securities are deeply
subordinated and have loss absorption elements that would likely
result in poor recoveries in the event of a corporate default.

Rating Sensitivities

The following factors may result in positive momentum in the
ratings and/or Rating Outlook:

-- Fitch's expectation of fixed-charge coverage sustaining
   above 3.0x (TTM coverage at 2Q'13 was 2.7x);

-- Fitch's expectation of leverage sustaining below 5.5x (2Q'13
   leverage was 5.9x);

-- Fitch's expectation of unencumbered assets to unsecured debt
   based on a 9% capitalization rate sustaining above 3.0x (this
   metric was 2.1x as of June 30, 2013).

The following factors may result in negative momentum in the
ratings and/or Rating Outlook:

-- Fitch's expectation of fixed charge coverage sustaining
   below 2.5x;

-- Fitch's expectation of leverage sustaining above 6.5x;

-- Fitch's expectation of unencumbered assets to unsecured debt
   sustaining below 2.0x;

-- Base case liquidity coverage sustaining below 1.0x (this metric
   was 1.2x as of June 30, 2013).


HERCULES OFFSHORE: 84.5% of Holders Tender 2017 Senior Notes
------------------------------------------------------------
Hercules Offshore, Inc., had received, as of 5:00 p.m., New York
City Time, on Sept. 30, 2013, tenders and consents from the
holders of $253,625,000 in aggregate principal amount, or
approximately 84.54 percent, of its outstanding $300,000,000 10.50
Percent Senior Secured Notes due 2017 in connection with its
previously announced cash tender offer and consent solicitation
for the Notes, which commenced on Sept. 17, 2013.

In connection with the tender offer and related consent
solicitation for the Notes, Hercules Offshore entered into a
supplemental indenture to the indenture governing the Notes to,
among other things, eliminate most of the restrictive covenants
and certain event of default provisions in the indenture.  Notes
tendered on or prior to the Consent Expiration may no longer be
withdrawn.  The settlement date for Notes tendered on or prior to
the Consent Expiration was Oct. 1, 2013.

The tender offer for the Notes is scheduled to expire at 11:59
p.m., New York City time, on Oct. 15, 2013, unless extended or
earlier terminated by Hercules Offshore.  Notes tendered after the
Consent Expiration but prior to the Expiration Time will not
receive a consent payment, but will receive tender consideration
of $1,053.75 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes accepted in the
offer, plus accrued and unpaid interest up to, but not including,
the date of payment for the Notes.  The final settlement for the
tender offer will be promptly after the Expiration Time and is
expected to be on Oct. 16, 2013, the next business day following
the Expiration Time.

Any Notes not tendered and purchased pursuant to the tender offer
will remain outstanding, and the holders thereof will be subject
to the terms of the supplemental indenture although they did not
consent to the amendments.

Hercules Offshore has engaged Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. to act
as dealer manager and solicitation agent in connection with the
tender offer.  Questions regarding the tender offer may be
directed to Deutsche Bank Securities, Inc., at (212) 250-7527

documentation may be directed to D.F. King & Co., Inc., at (800)
488-8075 (US toll-free).

The Company elected to redeem all 10.50 percent Notes that were
not tendered in the Tender Offer and that remain outstanding on
Nov. 4, 2013, and the Company instructed the trustee to provide
the requisite notice of redemption to holders of the Redeemed
Notes on Oct. 2, 2013.  The redemption price for the Redeemed
Notes is 105.25 percent, or $1,052.50 per $1,000.00, of the
principal amount of the Redeemed Notes, plus accrued and unpaid
interest, resulting in a payment of approximately $48.8 million.
Following the payment of the Redemption Price on the Redemption

HOUSTON REGIONAL: Astros Network to Fight Involuntary Filing
------------------------------------------------------------
Michael Bathon, substituting for Bloomberg bankruptcy columnist
Bill Rochelle, reports that Houston Regional Sports Network LP,
which televises games of Major League Baseball's Houston Astros
and the National Basketball Association's Houston Rockets, will
fight the involuntary bankruptcy its creditors are trying to force
upon it.

According to the report, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Marvin Isgur denied
the creditor's request for an emergency appointment of a Chapter
11 trustee to take control of the network, according to documents
filed in bankruptcy court on Sept. 30 in Houston.  The judge
instead scheduled an Oct. 28 hearing to consider the request and
any motions to dismiss the bankruptcy.  Harry Perrin, a lawyer for
Houston Regional Sports Network, said the case should be
dismissed, according to a docket entry of the courtroom minutes
for the hearing held on Sept. 30.  No formal request to dismiss
the involuntary bankruptcy was filed as of the time of this
writing.  All dismissal requests had to be filed by Oct. 7,
according to the Sept. 30 ruling.

Creditors, including affiliates of Comcast Corp., filed an
involuntary chapter 11 bankruptcy filing against the regional
sports network.  Comcast claims that it is owed more than $100
million and the broadcaster hasn't been paying its debts as they
come due.  "To avoid the destruction of the network's substantial
value" the creditors filed the involuntary bankruptcy, according
to court papers.  Comcast, which owns NBCUniversal, is willing to
buy the assets of the network, saying in court filings --
containing portions that were omitted -- that they have
"significant value."  The broadcaster is a joint venture of
affiliates of the Houston Astros, Houston Rockets and Comcast.

The report relates that Comcast "would be prepared to make a bid
to acquire either the network (under a plan of reorganization) or
substantially all of its assets," the Philadelphia-based cable
company said in court filings.  It said it's willing to provide
financing to help fund operations while in bankruptcy.  Comcast
has asked the court to appoint a Chapter 11 trustee to take over
control of the company and oust management, with which it has
reached a "debilitating deadlock" in a disagreement over the
direction and management of the network, according court
documents.

The report discloses that a lawyer for Comcast told the judge that
the network's general manager had "stepped down."  "Comcast has
improperly filed an involuntary bankruptcy petition in an attempt
to prevent the Astros from terminating the Media Rights Agreement
between the Astros and Houston Regional Sports Network," the
baseball team said in a statement on its Web site Sept. 27.

                About Houston Regional Sports Network

Universal and a television-related company.  The petitioners are:
Houston SportsNet Finance LLC, Comcast Sports Management Services
LLC, National Digital Television Center LLC, and Comcast SportsNet
California, LLC.

The petitioning creditors have filed papers asking the Bankruptcy

HUNTINGTON BANCSHARES: Fitch Ups Preferred Stock Rating to 'BB'
---------------------------------------------------------------
Following its large regional bank peer review, Fitch Ratings has
upgraded Huntington Bancshares, Inc.'s (HBAN) long-term Issuer
Default Rating (IDR) to 'A-' from 'BBB+'. The Rating Outlook is
revised to Stable from Positive. Please refer to the release
titled 'Fitch Takes Rating Actions on Its Large Regional Bank
Group Following Peer Review' dated Oct. 8, 2013 for a discussion
of rating actions taken on the large regional banks.

Key Rating Drivers - IDR & VR

Fitch's upgrade of HBAN's IDR is supported by the company's good
earnings profile, solid capital and liquidity position, and stable
asset quality performance, which is currently in-line with 'A-'
rated regional peers.

Despite a difficult operating environment, HBAN has delivered
solid results with ROA hitting an average of 1.13% and
PPNR/Average Assets averaging 1.70% over the last five quarter-end
periods. Although not immune to the pressures from the low
interest rate environment, HBAN's NIM compression has been more
manageable versus its large regional peers. Incorporated in
Fitch's rating action is the view that current operating trends
are sustainable.

Fitch also believes that given the company's improved risk
profile, credit metrics should remain stable and within its
normalized range 0.35%-0.55%, although for 2Q13 NCO were slightly
below at 0.34%. Additionally, the company's strong non-interest
bearing deposit growth (up 65% over the last two years) has
lowered its structural funding costs. The company's is also
targeting positive operating leverage position, which should
support the bottom line.

HBAN's capital position is also considered to be strong as its
estimated Tier 1 common under Basel III is on the higher-end of
peers at 10.11% for 2Q13.

Rating Sensitivities - IDR & VR

HBAN's ratings are at the high-end given that at the current
rating of 'A-' performance is in-line with peers.

Although not expected, should HBAN's performance fall below
current levels such as ROA and NIM or credit measures weaken with
outsized losses impacting capital levels, ratings would come under
pressure. Additionally, aggressive capital management would also
be viewed negatively.

Fitch has upgraded the following ratings:

Huntington Bancshares, Incorporated

-- Long-term IDR to 'A-' from 'BBB+'; Outlook Stable;
-- Short-term IDR to 'F1' from 'F2';
-- Viability rating to 'a-' from 'bbb+';
-- Subordinated debt to 'BBB+' from 'BBB';
-- Preferred stock to 'BB' from 'BB-'.

Huntington National Bank

-- Long-term deposits to 'A' from 'A-';
-- Long-term IDR to 'A-' from 'BBB+'; Outlook Stable;
-- Viability rating to 'a-' from 'bbb+';
-- Senior unsecured to 'a-' from 'BBB+';
-- Subordinated debt to 'BBB+' from 'BBB';
-- Short-term IDR to 'F1' from 'F2'.

Huntington Capital I, II

-- Preferred stock to 'BB+' from 'BB'.

Sky Financial Capital Trust I-IV

-- Preferred stock to 'BB+' from 'BB'.

Fitch has affirmed the following ratings:

Huntington Bancshares, Incorporated

-- Support at '5';
-- Support Floor at 'NF'.

Huntington National Bank

-- Short-term deposits at 'F1';
-- Support at '5'.

The Rating Outlook is Stable.


HUNTSMAN INTERNATIONAL.: Moody's Rates New Secured Term Loan 'Ba2'
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Ba2 rating to the new senior
secured term loan due 2021 of Huntsman International LLC (HI),
lowered the rating on its existing senior secured term loans to
Ba2 from Ba1 and affirmed the remaining ratings (Corporate Family
Rating of Ba3) of HI and Huntsman Corporation (Huntsman).

Proceeds from the term loan will be used to finance the 2014
acquisition of Rockwood Specialties Group, Inc.'s Pigments and
Performance Additives Business (excluding Clay-based Additives).
Huntsman will acquire the assets for $1.325 billion ($1.1 billion
in cash funded by the new term loan and assume $225 million of
pension liabilities). The transaction is expected to close in the
first half of 2014, subject to regulatory approvals.

"Huntsman is lining up its funding for the acquisition to lock in
a relatively low spread over LIBOR," stated Moody's analyst John
Rogers. "Even if the transaction does not occur, Huntsman will
have the flexibility to refinance its existing term loans with the
proceeds from the new loan."

The following summarizes the outlook activity:

Ratings assigned:

Huntsman International LLC

   Senior secured term loan due 2021 at Ba2 (LGD3, 30%)

Ratings lowered:

Huntsman International LLC

  Senior secured term loans due 2016 and 2017 to Ba2 (LGD3, 30%)
  from Ba1 (LGD2, 25%)

Ratings affirmed:

Huntsman Corporation

  Corporate Family Rating at Ba3

  Probability of Default Rating at Ba3-PD

Huntsman International LLC

  Corporate Family Rating at Ba3

  Probability of Default Rating at Ba3-PD

  Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating at SGL-2

  Gtd. senior unsecured notes due 2020 at B1 (LGD5, 77% from LGD5,
  71%)

  Gtd. senior subordinate notes due 2020 and 2021 at B2 (LGD6, 94%
  from LGD6, 93%)

Ratings Rationale:

The Ba3 Corporate Family Rating (CFR) at Huntsman and HI reflect
its solid competitive position in urethanes, epoxies and TiO2, as
well as an experienced management team. Additional support for the
rating considers management's stated intention to reduce net
leverage to about 2.0 to 2.5 times on a normalized EBITDA basis
(this ratio does not incorporate Moody's adjustments). However,
the severe downturn in TiO2 profitability over the past year has
materially weakened credit metrics and the proposed acquisition of
Rockwood's business would further stress Huntsman's metrics for
the Ba3 CFR (pro forma Debt/EBITDA as of June 30 , 2013 of roughly
5.0x). However, the TiO2 business appears to have bottomed in the
first half of 2013 and should generate a material improvement in
margins in the second half of 2013 and into 2014. Rockwood's TiO2
business has been slower to recover due to high priced ore
inventories and low capacity utilization.

The Ba2 rating on the new term loan and the downgrade of the
existing senior secured term loans reflects the increase in the
secured debt relative to the remaining debt in the capital
structure. Despite the large amount of secured term loan debt
($2.9 billion), the still sizable unsecured and subordinated debt
(over $1.5 billion) plus other debt like liabilities raises the
rating on the term loans to one notch above the CFR per Moody's
Loss Given Default Methodology. Huntsman plans to close on the new
term loan in 2014 coincident with the closing of the acquisition.
This amendment will also provide a $1 billion accordion facility
(similar to the existing agreement) and allow the issuance of
additional debt that matures after the maturity of the term loan.

The stable outlook reflects the expected improvement in Huntsman's
financial metrics in 2014, from the weak pro forma levels cited
above, given a recovery in the TiO2 margins and growth in
Huntsman's other businesses. Debt/EBITDA (including Moody's
standard adjustments) is expected to be 4.0-4.2x in 2014 and
Retained Cash Flow/Debt is expected to be in the 12-15% range. If
Debt/EBITDA remains above 4.5x in 2014 due to the failure of TiO2
margins to recover, Moody's could lower Huntsman's CFR by one
notch. An upgrade is unlikely at the current time due to elevated
financial metrics and uncertainty over the pace of improvement
through the first half of 2014. However, if Huntsman is able to
reduce its Debt/EBITDA towards 3.0x on a sustainable basis,
Moody's could raise the CFR to Ba2.

Huntsman's Speculative Grade Liquidity rating of SGL-2 is
supported by an elevated cash balance and the expectation for over
$300 million of free cash flow over the next four quarters.
Huntsman's secondary liquidity is provided by a $400 million
undrawn revolver due in 2017 and over $250 million of availability
under its US and European accounts receivable programs due 2016.
As part of this amendment Huntsman will expand its revolver to
$600 million at the close of the transaction.

Huntsman Corporation is a global manufacturer of differentiated
and commodity chemical products. Huntsman's products are used in a
wide variety of end markets, including aerospace, automotive,
construction, consumer products, electronics, medical, packaging,
coatings, refining and synthetic fibers. Huntsman has revenues of
almost $11 billion.

JACKSONVILLE BANCORP: Raises $5 Million in Stock Offerings
----------------------------------------------------------
Jacksonville Bancorp, Inc., holding company for The Jacksonville
Bank, has completed the sale of $5 million in common stock, or 10
million shares.  The capital was raised through the sale of common
stock to participating shareholders in the Company's previously
announced rights offering and to purchasers in its public offering
of the shares unsubscribed for in the Rights Offering.  The Public
Offering was fully subscribed with 7,917,383 shares of common
stock sold to institutional and local investors through Hovde
Group, LLC, the Company's sales agent for the Public Offering.

Don Glisson, Jr., Chairman of the Board, commented, "We are very
pleased with the results of the Public Offering, and by the
support from local investors and customers of The Jacksonville
Bank, as well as the institutional investment community.  The
success of this offering gives us positive momentum as we continue
to strengthen our capital position and execute our strategic
initiatives."

                    About Jacksonville Bancorp

Jacksonville Bancorp, Inc., a bank holding company, is the parent
of The Jacksonville Bank, a Florida state-chartered bank focusing
on the Northeast Florida market with eight full-service branches
in Jacksonville, Duval County, Florida, as well as the Company's
virtual branch.  The Jacksonville Bank opened for business on
May 28, 1999, and provides a variety of community banking services
to businesses and individuals in Jacksonville, Florida.

Jacksonville Bancorp disclosed a net loss of $43.04 million in
2012, a net loss of $24.05 million in 2011 and a $11.44 million
net loss in 2010.  The Company's balance sheet at March 31, 2013,
showed $520.89 million in total assets, $487.47 million in total
liabilities and $33.42 million in total shareholders' equity.

"Both Bancorp and the Bank must meet regulatory capital
requirements and maintain sufficient capital and liquidity and our
regulators may modify and adjust such requirements in the future.
The Bank's Board of Directors has agreed to a Memorandum of
Understanding (the "2012 MoU") with the FDIC and the OFR for the
Bank to maintain a total risk-based capital ratio of 12.00% and a
Tier 1 leverage ratio of 8.00%.  As of December 31, 2012, the Bank
was well capitalized for regulatory purposes and met the capital
requirements of the 2012 MoU.  If noncompliance or other events
cause the Bank to become subject to formal enforcement action, the
FDIC could determine that the Bank is no longer "adequately
capitalized" for regulatory purposes.  Failure to remain
adequately capitalized for regulatory purposes could affect
customer confidence, our ability to grow, our costs of funds and
FDIC insurance costs, our ability to make distributions on our
trust preferred securities, and our business, results of
operation, liquidity and financial condition, generally,"
according to the Company's annual report for the year ended
Dec. 31, 2012.


JC PENNEY: Says Turnaround Efforts "Making Solid Progress"
----------------------------------------------------------
Ben Fox Rubin, writing for The Wall Street Journal, reported that
J.C. Penney Co. on Oct. 8 reported improving sales trends in
September but noted that turning around the struggling retailer is
still in the early stages.

According to the report, at stores opened more than a year, sales
fell 4% last month, an improvement over the roughly double-digit
declines in August and the second quarter.

"Over the last six months, we have made significant strides and
are now seeing positive signs in many important areas of the
business, in spite of what continues to be a difficult environment
for consumers and retailers in general," said Chief Executive
Myron E. Ullman, the report cited.

He acknowledged, though, that the company is "still in the early
stages of the turnaround," and Penney suggested challenges remain,
such as improving traffic at mall-based stores, weaker
profitability because of discounting and fixing its home
department, the report related.

Nonetheless, investors were encouraged by the improvement in
sales, the report said.  Shares, which have fallen 61% in 2013 and
are trading at multidecade lows, jumped about 6% in early trading.

J.C. Penney Company, Inc. is one of the U.S.'s largest department
store operators with about 1,100 locations in the United States
and Puerto Rico.

                          *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Oct. 4, 2013,
Fitch Ratings has downgraded the Issuer Default Ratings (IDRs) on
J.C. Penney Co., Inc. and J.C. Penney Corporation, Inc. to 'CCC'
from 'B-'.


JOURNAL REGISTER: Mercer's Stay Relief, Case Dismissal Bids Nixed
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Arthur Mercer contends that he was slandered and defamed by an
article published in the Daily Freeman on June 18, 2010 pertaining
to his arrest.  He filed a civil action in New York state court on
June 21, 2011, seeking $200 million in damages.  The state court
action was stayed after Journal Register Company filed for
bankruptcy in September 2012, and was never removed to the
Bankruptcy Court.  Mercer has now moved (1) to dismiss the
Debtors' chapter 11 petitions as having been filed in bad faith
and to change venue, (2) for relief from the automatic stay and
abstention, and (3) for mandatory abstention.  He has also moved
for the recusal of Bankruptcy Judge Stuart M. Bernstein, who
oversees Journal Register's case.

In an Oct. 2 Memorandum Decision and Order available at
http://is.gd/NEbci1from Leagle.com, Judge Bernstein explained why
Mercer's motions are denied:

     1. Mercer contends that the Court should recuse itself
        because he "feels that this judge is for the Debtors and
        has shown favoritism toward the debtors."  Judge Bernstein
        said Mercer has failed to identify any incident of alleged
        bias, and accordingly, his recusal motion is denied.

     2. Mercer has failed to show cause why the case should be
        dismissed.  According to the judge, Mercer does not argue
        that the Debtors' chances of emerging from chapter 11 were
        objectively futile at the time of filing.  The Debtors ran
        operating businesses with numerous employees and
        substantial assets (and liabilities). They sold
        substantially all of their assets during the case, and the
        proceeds from the sale provide the means to implement the
        proposed plan.  Instead, Mercer argues that the Debtors
        filed these cases as a tactic to gain advantage in pending
        litigations, including the lawsuit that Mercer commenced.
        While the filing stayed all litigation against the
        Debtors, it did not provide any advantage beyond the stay.
        Mercer has not identified any favorable ruling he obtained
        in the state court litigation that the Debtors intended to
        frustrate or collaterally attack through the filing of the
        chapter 11 cases.

     3. Among other things, Mercer argues that one of the Debtors
        recently acquired real property in the Catskills, and
        suggests that the Debtors' cases should be transferred to
        Albany, New York.  He does not, however, explain why this
        or any other factor weighs in favor of changing venue,
        especially at this late stage where the confirmation
        hearing is scheduled for October 8, 2013. Consequently,
        the motion to transfer venue is denied.

     4. Judge Bernstein said Mercer appears to be motivated by a
        desire to litigate his claim in state court, a theme that
        runs through many of his motions; and any issue regarding
        his right to litigate in state court is premature.

     5. According to Judge Bernstein, because he is not aware of
        any contested matter or adversary proceeding in the
        Bankruptcy Court presently involving Mercer's state court
        claim, there is nothing from which the Court can abstain
        in favor of or remand to the state court.  The judge noted
        that Mercer has a defamation claim.  Assuming he has
        satisfied the procedural requirements for filing a claim
        and the Debtors object, the dispute may have to be decided
        by the District Court if it is determined that his
        defamation claim is a "personal injury tort" claim under
        28 U.S.C. Sec. 157(b)(5) (2006).  Alternatively, Mercer
        can ask the Court at that time to abstain from deciding
        the claim objection in favor of the state court lawsuit,
        and seek relief from the stay to effect any order of
        abstention. Finally, if the Debtors remove the state court
        action, he can move to remand it back to state court. For
        the reasons stated, however, the abstention (and remand)
        request is premature, and accordingly, is denied without
        prejudice.

                     About Journal Register

Journal Register Company -- http://www.JournalRegister.com/-- was
the publisher of the New Haven Register and other papers in 10
states, including Philadelphia, Detroit and Cleveland, and in
upstate New York.  JRC was managed by Digital First Media and is
affiliated with MediaNews Group, Inc., the nation's second largest
newspaper company as measured by circulation.

Journal Register, along with its affiliates, first filed for
Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No.
09-10769) on Feb. 21, 2009.  Attorneys at Willkie Farr & Gallagher
LLP, served as counsel to the Debtors.  Attorneys at Otterbourg,
Steindler, Houston & Rosen, P.C., represented the official
committee of unsecured creditors.  Journal Register emerged from
Chapter 11 protection under the terms of a pre-negotiated plan.

Journal Register exited the 2009 restructuring with $225 million
in debt and with a legacy cost structure, which includes leases,
defined benefit pensions and other liabilities that have become
unsustainable and threatened the Company's efforts for a
successful digital transformation.  Journal Register managed to
reduce the debt by 28% with the Company servicing in excess of
$160 million of debt.

Journal Register returned to bankruptcy (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Lead Case
No. 12-13774) on Sept. 5, 2012, to sell the business to 21st CMH
Acquisition Co., an affiliate of funds managed by Alden Global
Capital LLC.  The deal was subject to higher and better offers.

Alden Global is the holder of two terms loans totaling $152.3
million.  Alden Global acquired the stock and the term loans from
lenders in Journal Register's prior bankruptcy.

Journal Register disclosed total assets of $235 million and
liabilities totaling $268.6 million as of July 29, 2012.  This
includes $13.2 million owing on a revolving credit to Wells Fargo
Bank NA.

Bankruptcy Judge Stuart M. Bernstein presides over the 2012 case.
Neil E. Herman, Esq., Rachel Jaffe Mauceri, Esq., and Patrick D.
Fleming, Esq., at Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, LLP; and Michael R.
Nestor, Esq., Kenneth J. Enos, Esq., and Andrew L. Magaziner,
Esq., at Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor LLP, serve as the 2012
Debtors' counsel.  SSG Capital Advisors, LLC, serves as financial
advisors.  American Legal Claims Services LLC acts as claims
agent.  The petition was signed by William Higginson, executive
vice president of operations.

Otterbourg, Steindler, Houston & Rosen, P.C., represents Wells
Fargo.  Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld LLP, represents the
Debtors' Tranche A Lenders and Tranche B Lenders.  Emmet, Marvin &
Martin LLP, serves as counsel to Wells Fargo, in its capacity as
Tranche A Agent and the Tranche B Agent.

The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors appointed in the
case has retained Lowenstein Sandler PC as counsel and FTI
Consulting, Inc. as financial advisor.

The Journal Register bankruptcy has been renamed Pulp Finish I
Co., after the estate sold the newspaper business to lender and
owner Alden Global Capital Ltd., mostly in exchange for $114.15
million in secured debt and $6 million cash.  After debts with
higher priority are paid, what's left from the cash and a $630,000
tax refund represents most of unsecured creditors' recovery.
There were no bids to compete with Alden's offer.  Alden paid off
financing for the bankruptcy and assumed up to $22.8 million in
liabilities, thus taking care of most trade suppliers who
otherwise would have ended up as unsecured creditors.  In
addition, the lenders waived their deficiency claims, so
recoveries by unsecured creditors won't be diluted.

On July 2, 2013, the Debtors filed a Joint Plan of Liquidation.
The Court approved the Disclosure Statement on Aug. 29.


KEYWELL LLC: Can Continue to Operate Using Cash

KEYWELL LLC: Seeks to Sell Assets, Proposes Dec. Auction
--------------------------------------------------------
Keywell L.L.C. seeks authority from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division, to approve
the sale of substantially all of its assets to Cronimet Holdings,
Inc., for $12,500,000, in cash, plus the value of contingent
payments calculated as 30% of EBITDA generated solely from the
toll processing business performed for Allegheny Technologies,
Inc.

In consideration of Cronimet submitting the asset purchase
agreement and serving as the stalking horse bidder, the APA
requires the Court's approval of (i) a break-up fee equal to
$500,000 in the event the Court approves a higher and better offer
as a result of an auction, and (ii) bid protection in the
additional amount of $50,000.

In order to maximize the value of the Debtor's assets, the Debtor
asks the Court to approve bidding procedures governing the sale of
its assets.  Qualified bids for the Debtor's assets must be
submitted on or before Nov. 20, 2013.  The Debtor proposes to
conduct an auction on Dec. 2, at 10:00 a.m. (Central), and proceed
to a sale hearing on Dec. 4.

A hearing will be held on Oct. 16, 2013, at 9:30 a.m., for the
Court to consider approval of the bidding procedures motion.

The Debtor is represented by Howard L. Adelman, Esq., Erich S.

least $10 million.  Adelman & Gettleman Ltd. serves as the
Debtor's counsel.  Judge Eugene R. Wedoff presides over the case.

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania
authorized Eric Huebscher, the patient care ombudsman in the cases
of KidsPeace Corp., to employ Bryan Cave LLP as his counsel.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Aug. 7, 2013, the
ombudsman said Bryan Cave will help him represent the rights of
the Debtors' patients.  The ombudsman intends to retain these
Bryan Cave professionals at these hourly rates:

   Stephanie Wickouski, Esq.                   $780 per hour
   Eric Rieder, Esq.                           $850 per hour
   Thomas J. Schell, Esq.                      $635 per hour
   Sheryl Feutz-Harter, Esq.                   $375 per hour
   Jamilia Justine Willis, Esq.                $450 per hour

Ms. Wickouski, a partner at Bryan Cave LLP, in New York, assures
the Court that her firm is a "disinterested person" as the term is
defined in Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code and does not
represent any interest adverse to the ombudsman.

                      About KidsPeace Corp.

KidsPeace Corp., a provider of behavioral services for children,
filed a petition for Chapter 11 reorganization (Bankr. E.D. Pa.
Case No. 13-14508) on May 21, 2013, in Reading, Pennsylvania.

KidsPeace operates a 96-bed pediatric psychiatric hospital in
Orefield, Pennsylvania.  Assets are $86.7 million, and debt on the
books is $158.6 million, according to a court filing.

The Debtor, which sought bankruptcy protection with eight
affiliates, tapped Norris McLaughlin & Marcus, P.A. as counsel;
EisnerAmper LLP as financial advisor, and Rust Omni as claims and
notice agent.

Assets total $158,587,999 at the end of 2012.  The Debtors owe
approximately $56,206,821 in bond debt, and they have been told
that their pension liability is allegedly about $100,000,000 of
which the Debtors currently reflect $83,049,412 on their books.

KidsPeace sought Chapter 11 (i) as a means to implement a
negotiated restructuring of bond debt currently aggregating
approximately $51,310,000 plus accrued interest to a reduced
amount of approximately $24 million in new 30-year bonds with
interest at 7.5 percent, and (ii) to continue on-going
negotiations with the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation  in
hopes of reducing the PBGC asserted obligation of $100+ million to
an amount that the Debtors can reasonably expect to satisfy.

The Debtor disclosed $157,930,467 in assets and $168,768,207 in
liabilities as of the Chapter 11 filing.

Since March 2012, MK has been exploring possible affiliation or
acquisition opportunities; however, no offer of an affiliation or
acquisition has been presented to the Debtors.

is represented by James S. Rankin, Jr., Esq., at Parker, Hudson,

LE-NATURE INC: Trustee Slams Firm as Malpractice Tiff Reignites
---------------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that the liquidating trustee of Le-Nature's Inc.
lodged a filing on Oct. 3 with exhaustive details of alleged
errors and misrepresentations committed by K&L Gates LLP as it
failed to uncover financial fraud in its internal investigation of
the collapsed beverage company, as the $500 million malpractice
suit against the firm re-emerged in Pennsylvania state court.

According to the report, the Trustee filed a more than 125-page
response to the firm's new matter and counterclaims, which were
filed under seal in July.

M&T CAPITAL: Fitch Affirms 'BB+' Preferred Stock Rating
-------------------------------------------------------
Following its large regional bank peer review, Fitch Ratings has
revised the Rating Outlook to Positive from Stable on M&T Bank
Corporation's (MTB) Issuer Default Ratings (IDRs). Please refer to
the release titled 'Fitch Takes Rating Actions on Its Large
Regional Bank Group Following Peer Review' dated Oct. 8, 2013, for
a discussion of rating actions taken on the large regional banks.

Key Rating Drivers - IDR & VR

Fitch has affirmed MTB's ratings and revised the Outlook to
Positive from Stable. Fitch recognizes that the company has
consistently delivered solid financial measures and credit
performance during a difficult operating environment.
Additionally, the company's solid franchise, veteran management
team, and good revenue diversification are considered rating
strengths. Offsetting these positives, MTB's capital levels tend
to be lower than those of its peers. However, in Fitch's view, the
company's strong equity generation, good asset quality performance
through various credit cycles, solid reserves when compared to net
charge-offs (NCOs) and moderate dividend payout help offset the
capital position. Further, MTB has continued to build its capital
position from historical levels. As of 2Q'13, TCE and Tier 1
Common estimated (under Basel III) stood at 7.61% and 8.10%,
respectively

MTB's earnings profile is considered to be one of the strongest of
its peer group. MTB is one of the most consistent performers, as
its earnings measures have seen less volatility than most of its
large regional peers. Additionally, MTB's earnings are considered
to be sustainable given results have not been supported by any
reserve release as the company's provision expense continues to
exceed NCOs.

Credit performance has also been solid, despite the company's
large exposure to commercial real-estate assets. MTB's NCOs and
non-performing assets (NPAs) have outperformed most peers in
various credit cycles, evidence of the strong credit culture of
the company. MTB also reports one of the least volatile NCO
ratios. Additionally, Fitch believes the company's reserve
coverage also provides good support, given its loss history.

Although capital position is considered to be MTB's weak spot,
Fitch acknowledges the company's improved capital ratios from
historical levels, such as TCE, leverage and Tier 1 Common ratios.
Further, Fitch believes the company's strong and consistent
earnings and credit profile through various credit cycles affords
the leaner capital position.

Rating Sensitivities - IDR & VR

Positive rating momentum could ensue should MTB successfully
remediate its current BSA/AML deficiencies without any regulatory
violations that subsequently lead to significant fines that
materially impact the company's balance sheet and/or restrictions
to its business model. Fitch would expect MTB's capital position
to continue to build while maintaining strong earnings, reserves
and credit performance.

Conversely, negative rating drivers would include a more
aggressive approach to capital management, and/or announcing an
acquisition in the near term given the sizeable Hudson City
transaction. Additionally, unexpected changes to current business
strategy or key executive management would also be viewed
negatively.

Fitch has affirmed the following ratings and revised the Outlook
to Positive from Stable:

M&T Bank Corporation

-- Long-term IDR at 'A-'; Outlook Positive;
-- Short-term IDR at 'F1';
-- Viability at 'a-';
-- Preferred stock at 'BB';

MODAL INC: Moody's Cuts CFR to Caa1 & Secured Debt Rating to B2
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Mmodal Inc.'s debt ratings,
including the corporate family rating (CFR) to Caa1 from B3,
senior secured to B2 from B1, and senior unsecured to Caa3 from
Caa2. The ratings outlook is negative.

Ratings Ratioanale:

Moody's expectations for further declines in MModal's revenue and
negative free cash flow, with debt to EBITDA (Moody's adjusted)
above 8 times, are factors that lead to the downgrade. Ongoing
declines in transcription outsourcing services (TOS) volume with
slower than originally expected new technology sales drive Moody's
anticipation of revenue and profit declines, while high interest
and cash restructuring costs will drive negative free cash flow.
Moody's expects some TOS gross margin improvements will lead
EBITDA and profits to decline at a lower rate than revenues.
Liquidity is considered weak. MModal generally holds little cash
and free cash flow is expected to be negative, and Modal has drawn
significantly under its revolving credit.

The negative ratings outlook reflects the weak liquidity, which
limits the flexibility to complete a turn-around of operations, as
well as the ability to invest. The outlook could be stabilized if
Moody's comes to expect revenue and profits to stabilize, and for
Modal to generate positive free cash flow. The ratings could be
lowered if declines in revenues and profits are greater than
expected, or if liquidity deteriorates further.

The following ratings were downgraded (and LGD assessments
revised):

Corporate Family Rating -- Downgraded to Caa1 from B3

Probability of Default Rating -- Downgraded to Caa1-PD from B3-PD

$75 million Senior Secured Revolver due 2017 -- Downgraded to B2
(LGD3, 31%) from B1 (LGD3, 31%)

$440 million Senior Secured Term Loan B due 2019 -- Downgraded to
B2 (LGD3, 31%) from B1 (LGD3, 31%)

$250 million Senior Notes due 2020 -- Downgraded to Caa3 (LGD5,
85%) from Caa2 (LGD5, 85%)

Modal is a provider of TOS and related Automated Speech
Recognition technology serving clinical healthcare institutions
mostly in the U.S. owned by affiliates of One Equity Partners.
Moody's expects 2013 revenues of $415 to $435 million, down from
2012.


MONTREAL MAINE: Will Sell Assets in December
--------------------------------------------
Michael Bathon, substituting for Bloomberg bankruptcy columnist
Bill Rochelle, reports that the U.S. bankruptcy trustee and the
Canadian monitor for Montreal, Maine & Atlantic Railway Ltd., the
operator of a runaway oil train that exploded and killed 47 people
in a Quebec town in July, have agreed on a sale process and intend
on holding an auction in December to sell its assets.

According to the report, expressions of interest must be received
by Oct. 31, according to court documents filed in U.S. Bankruptcy
Court in Bangor, Maine.  Gordian Group LLC was hired as the
investment bank to help conduct the sale.  The company would
select a stalking-horse bidder, to set a floor for other potential
buyers to try to top, and obtain approval of the guidelines that
would govern the sale process from the courts by Nov. 15, court
papers show.

The report notes that bidders wouldn't have to make offers for all
of the company's assets and would be able to make an offer on
specific assets.  A Dec. 13 auction would be held to determine the
highest and best offer for the company's assets if the requested
sale process is approved.  A Dec. 16 hearing would be held to seek
court approval to sell the assets to the auction winner or winners
from both the U.S. and Canadian courts.

                        About Montreal Maine

Montreal, Maine & Atlantic Railway Ltd., the railway company that
operated the train that derailed and exploded in July 2013,
killing 47 people and destroying part of Lac-Megantic, Quebec,
sought bankruptcy protection in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Bangor,
Maine (Case No. 13-10670) on Aug. 7, 2013, with the aim of selling
its business.  Its Canadian counterpart, Montreal, Maine &
Atlantic Canada Co., meanwhile, filed for protection from
creditors in Superior Court of Quebec in Montreal.

Robert J. Keach, Esq., at Bernstein, Shur, Sawyer, and Nelson,
P.A., has been named as chapter 11 trustee.  His firm serves as
his chapter 11 bankruptcy counsel.  Development Specialists, Inc.,
serves as his financial advisor.

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Louis H. Kornreich has been assigned to the
U.S. case.  The Maine law firm of Verrill Dana serves as counsel
to MM&A.

Justice Martin Castonguay oversees the case in Canada.

The Canadian Transportation Agency suspended the carrier's
operating certificate after the accident, due to insufficient
liability coverage.

The town of Lac-Megantic, Quebec, is seeking financial aid to
restore the gutted community and a civil complaint alleges a
failure to take steps to prevent a derailment.

The Hermon, Maine-based carrier is still working to create a
formal claims process for the families of the victims and other
claims holders.  The carrier will present a formal process to the
court for approval by Nov. 30, according to the filings, Bloomberg
News reported.

NIRVANIX INC: Wins Court Approval of $1-Mil. Bankruptcy Loan
------------------------------------------------------------
Michael Bathon, substituting for Bloomberg bankruptcy columnist
Bill Rochelle, reports that Nirvanix Inc., a so-called cloud-based
data storage company, won court approval to borrow about $1.1
million to help fund operations while in bankruptcy.

According to the report, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Brendan Linehan
Shannon approved the company request at an Oct. 4 hearing,
according to court documents.  The judge will consider giving
final approval of the bankruptcy loan at an Oct. 23 hearing.  The
financing is necessary to "continue in business long enough to
capitalize on the prior indications of interest received from
strategic buyers with the goal of selling its assets," under a
court approved auction process, Nirvanix said in court papers.

The report notes that the loan will also provide the company
additional time to assist its customers in either returning their
data or alternative cloud-storage providers.  "Nirvanix
voluntarily sought Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in order to
pursue all alternatives to maximize value for its creditors while
continuing its efforts to provide the best possible transition for
customers," the company said in a message on its website.

The report relates that it said it would assist customers in
either returning their data or transferring it to similar
platforms offered by International Business Machines Corp., Google
Inc., Microsoft Corp. and Amazon.com Inc.  The San Diego-based
company listed between $10 million and $50 million each in both
assets and debt, according to Chapter 11 documents filed Oct. 1 in
Wilmington, Delaware.

The report relays that the company, calling itself "the leader in
enterprise cloud storage" offers cloud storage solutions designed
specifically for customers with security, reliability and
redundancy requirements, according to company statements.  Storage
products are custom built for the largest media & entertainment
companies, financial institutions and technology companies,
according to the company.

The report discloses that Khosla Ventures IV LP, a venture capital
firm focused on technology, owns more than 70 percent of both the
Series 1 preferred stock and the junior preferred stock as well as
15.5 percent of the common stock, court papers show.  A venture
capital unit of Intel Corp. owns more than 20 percent of the
common equity, and 17 percent of the Series 1 preferred and about
22 percent of the junior preferred.  Valhalla Partners II LP owns
about 25 percent of the common stock and Mission Ventures III LP
owns about 24 percent.

The case is In re Nirvanix Inc., 13-bk-12595, U.S. Bankruptcy
Court, District of Delaware (Wilmington).

                     U.S. Trustee Objects

Daniel M. McDermott, United States Trustee for Region 12, asks the
Court to deny the Committee's request for nunc pro tunc employment
of O'Keefe effective August 26, 2013, saying the Application does
not set forth any basis by which the Court could determine that
extraordinary circumstances exist which would support granting
O'Keefe's retroactive employment.

"Absent the establishment of extraordinary circumstances O'Keefe's
employment should be approved only as of the date of the filing of
the Application," says Mr. McDermott.

The document is signed by:

    James L. Snyder
    Assistant United States Trustee

    Tel: (515) 284-4982
    Fax: 284-4986
    E-mail: James.L.Snyder@usdoj.gov

                     Committee Responds

The Committee tells the Court that it concurs with the U.S.
Trustee that the Application fails to explain the circumstances
justifying retroactive employment and that "simple neglect is
insufficient to excuse non-compliance" with 11 U.S.C. Section 327.

However, the Committee explains, the exigent circumstances it
faced at the outset of the case and other factors amply justify
the short delay in filing the Application, satisfy the standards
for retroactive approval of an employment application articulated
by the Eighth Circuit, the Seventh Circuit, and the Third Circuit,
and are consistent with practices (both formal and informal) in
other jurisdictions around the country.

The primary circumstances leading to the slight delay in the
filing of the Application include:

a. O'Keefe's services were immediately required by the Committee
   in order to enable the Committee to reach an informed decision
   regarding the appropriateness of the proposed expedited sale
   process outside of a plan of reorganization and the structuring
   of a fair DIP financing arrangement.

b. The US Trustee had filed a motion to convert the case to
   Chapter 7 the day after O'Keefe had been retained;

c. Following the decision to retain O'Keefe at its meeting of
   August 26, 2013, the Committee received from O'Keefe a
   standard form engagement letter that contained a few provisions
   that were of concern to the Committee (such as regarding
   indemnities and other provisions that the Court noted were of
   concern in connection with the Lincoln retention application).

d. Committee counsel advised the Court at the interim DIP hearing
   that the Application would be filed if the Court entered an
   order approving the proposed DIP financing stipulation. Once
   the interim DIP order was entered, the Committee worked to file
   the Application expeditiously, and in fact filed the
   Application exactly one week after entry of the interim DIP
   order.

The Committee says there is no prejudice from approving the
retention retroactively. The total consulting time rendered by
O'Keefe through the date of the Application totaled no more
than approximately 15 hours and so will not cost the estate more
than about $5,000, it added.

PENTON BUSINESS: Moody's Hikes CFR to B3 & Affirms B1 Debt Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has upgraded Penton Business Media
Holdings, Inc.'s corporate family rating (CFR) to B3 from Caa1 and
the probability of default rating (PDR) to B3-PD following the
completion of its refinancing transaction.  This action concludes
the review for upgrade initiated on September 16.

Moody's affirmed the B1 (LGD3-32%) ratings on the new $510 million
senior secured 1st lien credit facilities, which consist of a $460
million term loan and $50 million revolver and the Caa2 (LGD5-84%)
rating on the $205 million 2nd lien term loan. The Caa1 rating on
the existing revolver and term loan have been withdrawn due to
repayment. The rating outlook is stable.

The new debt was jointly borrowed by two subsidiaries of the
company, Penton Media, Inc and Penton Business Media, Inc. Moody's
will withdraw all existing ratings at Penton Business Media
Holdings, Inc and has moved the corporate family rating and the
probability of default rating to the new Guarantor, Penton
Operating Holdings, Inc. (Penton).

The upgrade of the corporate family rating to B3 reflects the
completion of the refinancing transaction that addressed the
August 2014 term loan maturity in addition to Penton's improvement
in operating performance aided by two recent acquisitions that
were funded in part with free cash flow. Leverage has declined
from almost 9x at the end of 2011 to under 7x pro-forma for the
recent acquisition.

Moody's has taken the following rating actions:

Issuer: Penton Operating Holdings, Inc

Assignments

Corporate Family Rating, B3

Probability of Default Rating, B3-PD

Outlook, Stable

Issuer: Penton Business Media, Inc

Affirmed

$50 million revolver maturing 2018 affirmed at B1 (LGD3-32%)

$460 million 1st lien term loan maturing 2019 affirmed at B1
(LGD3-32%)

$205 million 2nd lien term loan maturing in 2020 affirmed at Caa2
(LGD5-84%)

Withdrawn:

$40 million revolver maturing August 2014, withdrawn at Caa1
(LGD3-48%)

$625 million first lien term loan maturing August 2014, withdrawn
at Caa1 (LGD3-48%)

Issuer: Penton Business Media Holdings, Inc.

  Corporate Family Rating, upgraded to B3 from Caa1, to be
  withdrawn near term

  Probability of Default Rating, upgraded to B3-PD from Caa1-PD,
  to be withdrawn near term

Outlook, Stable, to be withdrawn near term

Ratings Rationale:

Penton's B3 CFR reflects high leverage of almost 7x (including
Moody's standard adjustments) pro-forma for the refinancing and
recent acquisitions as of Q2 2013 and its cyclical business
profile. The ratings also reflect mid to high single digit
declines in revenues in the Print segment, which currently
accounts for approximately 50% of total revenue. However, as the
Print business has lower overall EBITDA margins than its Digital
and Events segments, it accounts for a smaller percentage of
overall EBITDA. The company will need to carefully manage the
transition from Print to Digital going forward which will require
cost cutting at declining print operations while supporting
growing digital and data products.

The rating is supported by the company's improved business mix
between print and digital content, the established position in the
trade show industry, and strong position in the niche verticals
where it operates. The focus on five different industry segments
provides diversification and reduces the sensitivity the company
has to any one industry. Moody's expects Penton's leverage to
decline to approximately 5.5x (Moody's adjusted) by year end 2014
through cost synergies and the increase in business mix coming
from its higher margin Event and Digital business lines compared
to Print. In addition to the leverage improvement from EBITDA
growth, Moody's expects Penton to generate approximately $50
million of free cash flow each year which may be used to fund
future acquisitions.

Moody's anticipates that Penton will have good liquidity over the
next 12 months, supported by strong free cash flow and a partially
drawn $50 million revolver ($20 million drawn at closing). The
term loans are expected to have no financial covenants, except for
a springing net leverage test on the revolver.

The ratings for the debt instruments reflect both the overall
probability of default of Penton, to which Moody's assigns a PDR
of B3-PD, the average family loss given default assessment and the
composition of the debt instruments in the capital structure. The
1st lien credit facilities are rated B1 (LGD3, 32%), two notches
above the CFR given the loss absorption from the Caa2 (LGD5, 84%)
rated 2nd lien debt.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectation that Penton will
continue to grow EBITDA and benefit from cost synergies from
recent acquisitions. Future modest sized acquisitions that are
funded with free cash flow would further contribute to EBITDA
growth and lead to additional deleveraging.

The ratings could be upgraded if Penton is able to reduce leverage
well below 5x on a sustained basis while demonstrating positive
revenue growth and good free cash flow. Additionally, a rating
upgrade would be predicated on Penton maintaining stable margins
and good liquidity.

The ratings could be downgraded if the company's revenues decline
materially due to an acceleration of print decline, challenges
growing the digital segment, or due to a weaker than expected
economy such that leverage remains above 6x. A failure to maintain
adequate liquidity could also trigger negative rating pressure.

Penton Business Media, Inc., headquartered in New York, NY, is a
diversified business-to-business media company providing print,
trade show and digital products and services. Penton emerged from
Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in March 2010. Revenue for the
twelve months ended June 30, 2013 was $316 million.


POINT CENTER: Ch.11 Trustee Won't Pursue Diamond McCarthy Hiring
----------------------------------------------------------------
Howard B. Grobstein, the Chapter 11 trustee of Point Center
Financial, Inc., filed an objection to his own request to employ
Diamond McCarthy LLP as special litigation counsel, and said he is
attempting to locate "competent replacement" counsel as quickly as
possible.

Mr. Grobstein cited inaccuracies in the documents filed by Diamond
McCarthy seeking Court approval of the firm's engagement.

"Diamond McCarthy has placed the Trustee in the position of being
unable to withdraw his own Application (because Diamond McCarthy
filed it and is only willing to amend it consistent with Diamond
McCarthy's desires)," John P. Reitman, Esq., at Landau Gottfried &
Berger LLP, the proposed general counsel for the Chapter 11
trustee, said in court papers.

The Chapter 11 Trustee's objection states that:

    -- The Application Diamond McCarthy filed states that the firm
       was employed for a "limited purpose and time period".  On
       Aug. 28, 2013, Diamond McCarthy filed a complaint
       commencing the adversary proceeding entitled Howard B.
       Grobstein, Chapter 11 Trustree v. Dan J. Harkey, et al.
       The Trustee agreed to employ Diamond McCarthy as special
       litigation counsel to prosecute that adversary proceeding,
       not just a portion of it.  Diamond McCarthy did not
       informed the Trustee that its intention was to be employed
       for a limited purpose or time;

    -- While the Trustee executed the application on Sept. 18,
       2013, he directed Diamond McCarthy to amend and correct
       the application on Sept. 19.  Despite that the
       application is the Trustee's application and that the
       Trustee does not believe it to be accurate, Diamond
       McCarthy refused to withdraw or amend the application.
       Diamond McCarthy refused to follow its client's direction.
       The Trustee's direction to withdraw the application was
       given both orally and in writing;

    -- The inaccurate statement addressing Diamond McCarthy's
       alleged "limited scope" of employment pursuant to Paragraph
       "8" was supported by a Declaration of Kathy Bazoian Phelps,
       a partner of Diamond McCarthy where she asserted that "The
       Trustee and Diamond McCarthy have agreed that the
       employment of Diamond McCarthy shall be for the period of
       time from Aug. 20, 2013 to Sept. 25, 2013."  That
       statement, though attested by Ms. Phelps under penalty of
       perjury to support the statement in Paragraph "8" of the
       application, is not true.  Ms. Phelps later claimed that
       Paragraph "8" of her declaration had been drafted and
       included by her in her own declaration as a result of a
       "typographical error";

    -- After the Trustee expressed concern about the inaccurate
       statement in Paragraph "8" of Ms. Phelp's declaration,
       Diamond McCarthy filed a "Notice of Errata" withdrawing the
       inaccuracy but not withdrawing the inaccurate description
       in Paragraph "8" of the application.  The Notice of Errata,
       signed by Diamond McCarthy and not filed with the Trustee's
       express or implied authority, purports to amend an
       application signed by the Trustee;

    -- As part of Diamond McCarthy's attempt to withdraw quickly
       from the adversary proceeding, Diamond McCarthy, and Ms.
       Phelps in particular, threatened the Trustee with
       reputational harm if he and his proposed General Counsel
       did not act consistent with Diamond McCarthy's desires.
       Those threats were both oral and in writing.  The Trustee
       will not alter his actions in this case, or in any other
       case, based on threats by anyone, let alone his own
       counsel; and

    -- Diamond McCarthy threatened the Trustee's proposed general
       counsel with reputational harm as well.  The Trustee's
       general counsel has attempted to protect the Trustee, and
       the bankruptcy estate, from Diamond McCarthy's actions.

The Hon. Theodor Albert of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Central District of California will hold a hearing on the
Trustee's objection on Oct. 23, 2013, at 10:00 a.m.

                        About Point Center

Point Center Financial, Inc., a hard money lender, filed a
Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. C.D. Cal. Case No. 13-11495) in Santa
Ana, California, on Feb. 19, 2013.  The Debtor disclosed
$109,257,545 in assets and $54,566,116 in liabilities as of the
Chapter 11 filing.

The Company claims to have a long track record of success in
originating and servicing loans from hundreds of investors.
Unfortunately, due to the historic collapse of the economy
beginning in about 2007, the Debtor, no different than many other
similar enterprises in real estate, has fallen on hard times.

From a high of about 130 performing loans with a total combined
face value of over $450 million in 2006, only 8 loans are now
performing.  There were a total of only four foreclosed properties
("REOs") as of 2006.  In comparison, between 2007 and 2012, there
were 60 foreclosure sales.

The result left the Debtor saddled with large secured liabilities
to PMB, which has a blanket lien on all of the Debtor's assets in
excess of $9 million, secured by the Debtor's primary asset of
loan servicing and management fees received from secured loans and
properties that have been taken back through foreclosure.

The MA Creditors are represented by Mary L. Fickel, Esq., at
Fickel & Davis.

The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors is represented by
Marshack Hays LLP as counsel.

Howard B. Grobstein has been appointed as Chapter 11 trustee of
the Debtor's estate.  John P. Reitman, Esq., and Roy Zur, Esq. --
jreitman@lgbfirm.com and rzur@lgbfirm.com -- at Landau Gottfried &
Berger LLP, serve as general counsel for the Chapter 11 trustee.

PRIVATE COMMERCIAL: Court Limits Petitioning Creditors' Claims
--------------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Michael G. Williamson in Tampa, Florida, limited
the administrative expense claims sought by three creditors who
sought to place Ulrich Felix Anton Engler and Private Commercial
Office Inc., in bankruptcy, to the fees they incurred through the
date the order for relief was entered for work they did solely
because this case was filed.

The petitioning creditors sued Engler and PCO in state court to
recover money due under a promissory note. During their
investigation in the state court case, the creditors discovered
the Debtors were operating a Ponzi scheme. So the creditors filed
an involuntary Chapter 7 case to put an end to the Ponzi scheme.
And they say the investigation they did before filing the
bankruptcy case was instrumental in the Chapter 7 Trustee
successfully pursuing fraudulent transfer and other claims after
this case was filed.

The Debtors perpetrated a massive Ponzi scheme bilking investors
out of hundreds of millions of dollars.  Engler apparently
represented to potential investors that he had sophisticated,
proprietary software enabling him to effectuate trades faster than
other investors, yielding enormously large and sustainable
profits. And he claimed he had a track record of success to prove
it. In actuality, Engler had no such software -- or track record
of success. The only way for Engler to make good on the returns
promised to investors was to acquire funds from new investors at
an exponential rate. Those investors included Klaus Wolfschmidt,
Reinhard Muller, and Anneliese Schmitt.

When Wolfschmidt, Muller, and Schmitt did not receive the promised
returns, they retained Fowler White to pursue legal action against
the Debtors. Immediately after it was retained in October 2007,
Fowler White began investigating potential claims against the
Debtors.  It appears from the time records filed with the Court
that Fowler White filed a complaint for damages and injunctive
relief by mid-November 2007.  While that case was pending, Fowler
White continued investigating the Debtor's assets.  Sometime
during that investigation, Fowler White uncovered the widespread
nature of the Debtors' fraud.  By late January 2008, Fowler White
began considering a possible involuntary bankruptcy against the
Debtors.

Over the next three months, Fowler White conducted and analyzed
various legal issues related to the potential involuntary case
against the Debtors.  At the same time, it continued with its
state court lawsuit against the Debtors.  Eventually, Fowler White
determined an involuntary bankruptcy case was necessary to put an
end to the Ponzi scheme and give creditors some hope of recovering
on their "investments."

On March 31, 2008, Fowler White filed two involuntary bankruptcy
cases -- one against Engler and the other against Private
Commercial Office -- on behalf of their clients.  The involuntary
case against Engler was styled: In re Engler, Case No. 9:08-bk-
04360-MGW. The case against Private Commercial Office was styled:
In re Private Commercial Office, Inc., Case No. 9:08-bk-04365-MGW.
The two cases were eventually consolidated.

Two weeks after the bankruptcy filing, Fowler White was approved
as counsel for the petitioning creditors (their clients
Wolfschmidt, Muller, and Schmitt). Neither Engler nor Private
Commercial Office responded to the summons for the involuntary
petition. So the petitioning creditors moved for entry of an order
of relief by default.  On April 29, 2008, the Court entered an
order for relief; Robert Tardif was appointed as the Chapter 7
Trustee the following day.  Six months later, Fowler White was
approved as special counsel.

From the time this case was filed until Fowler White was retained
as special counsel, the petitioning creditors say they: provided
the Trustee with substantial information they obtained during
their pre-petition investigation; assisted the Trustee in
obtaining the information necessary to prepare the Debtors'
schedules (such as the names and addresses of hundreds of victims
of the Debtors' Ponzi scheme); prepared and filed an application
to have these bankruptcy proceedings recognized in Germany;
provided the Trustee with documents relating to the recovery of
assets; provided the Trustee with information about the Debtors'
associates, bank records, and assets; and assisted the Trustee by
researching the Debtor's assets.

The petitioning creditors apparently incurred $156,944.42 in fees
for work done by Fowler White from the time the firm was initially
retained by the petitioning creditors in October 2007 until the
time it was retained as special counsel by the Trustee in October
2008.

On October 15, 2012, the petitioning creditors filed their fee
application.  In their fee application, the petitioning creditors
only sought $102,569.53 in fees and expenses.  According to the
petitioning creditors, they voluntarily reduced the fees and
expenses they were seeking by $54,374.89.  The Trustee objected to
the fees sought by the petitioning creditors.  So the Court
scheduled a final evidentiary hearing on the petitioning
creditors' administrative expense application.

Before the final evidentiary hearing was held, the parties agreed
to have the Court rule on the petitioning creditors'
administrative expense claim on summary judgment. The petitioning
creditors filed a motion for summary judgment seeking a total of
$95,753.06 in fees and expenses.  According to the petitioning
creditors, they are entitled to (i) $38,011.53 for fees and
expenses incurred prepetition in connection with filing this case;
and (ii) $55,916.53 for fees and expenses incurred after the case
was filed (but before Fowler White was retained as special
counsel) for work that resulted in the recovery of assets for the
estate.  The Trustee objects to all but $6,138.25 of the pre-
petition fees and expenses and all of the post-petition fees and
expenses.

"The Court does not doubt that the petitioning creditors provided
a benefit -- perhaps even a substantial benefit -- to the estate.
But the Court cannot award an administrative expense claim in a
chapter 7 case based on a substantial benefit.  Instead, the Court
is limited by the plain meaning of [Sec.] 503(b). And under the
plain meaning of that section, the petitioning creditors are not
entitled to an administrative expense claim for any fees they
incurred prepetition (through the date the order for relief was
entered) for work they would have done had this case not been
filed. Nor are they entitled to an administrative expense claim
under [Sec.] 503(b)(3)(B) for any fees they incurred after the
order for relief since they failed to obtain court approval for
the actions they took to recover property for the estate," Judge
Williamson said.

Roberta A. Colton, Esq., and Stephanie Crane Leib, Esq., represent
the Petitioning Creditors.

PROVINCE GRANDE: Objection to Levin and Shareff Claims Shelved
--------------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge A. Thomas Small declined to consider Province
Grande Olde Liberty, LLC's objections to the claims of Eric Levin
and Howard Shareff, each for $500,000, pending a decision in the
civil action against the Debtor before the North Carolina Business
Court.  A copy of Judge Small's Oct. 1, 2013 Order is available at
http://is.gd/doJcTBfrom Leagle.com.

The claimants are the plaintiffs in the business court action,
captioned as Bolton v. Province Grande Olde Liberty,
LLC, Case No. 10-CVS-12062.  In addition, Messrs. Levin and
Shareff on July 24, 2013, filed an adversary proceeding in the
bankruptcy court, AP 13-00122-8-ATS, seeking equitable
subordination or recharacterization of some of the debtor's
secured debt.  The debtor, along with the secured creditor whose
debt is at issue, is a defendant in the equitable subordination
action.

On August 2, 2013, the debtor filed the motion seeking removal of
the Bolton case to the bankruptcy court on the grounds that the
equitable subordination action will require determination of the
same issues that are before the business court in the Bolton case.

In a Sept. 30 ruling, Judge Small said there may be some overlap
with the state court litigation, but the causes of actions alleged
in the adversary proceeding are focused on the transactions
between the debtor and PEM and are sufficiently different that
they should proceed in the bankruptcy court.

Province Grande Olde Liberty, LLC, filed a voluntary Chapter 11
petition (Bankr. E.D.N.C. Case No. 13-01563) on March 11, 2013.

SAN DIEGO HOSPICE: Oct. 23 Set as Claims Bar Date
-------------------------------------------------
Creditors of San Diego Hospice & Palliative Care Corporatio are
required to file their proofs of debt by Oct. 23, 2013.

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.

On April 30, 2013, San Diego Hospice received Court authority to
sell its unused 24-bed hospice facility to Scripps Health for
$16.55 million.  Scripps made the opening bid of $10.7 million at
the auction that took place before the sale-approval hearing.  The
other bidder was Sharp Healthcare.  The sale is also subject to
approval by regulators in California.

In May 2013, San Diego Hospice and its creditors' committee
jointly filed a liquidating Chapter 11 plan and an explanatory
disclosure statement.

Jeffrey Isaacs, Esq., at Procopio, Cory, Hargreaves & Savitch LLP
represents the Debtor.

SEAN DUNNE: Irish Developer Ordered to Turn Over Documents
----------------------------------------------------------
Michael Bathon, substituting for Bloomberg bankruptcy columnist
Bill Rochelle, reports that Sean Dunne, once one of Ireland's
biggest real-estate developers, was ordered to produce financial
records requested by the trustee overseeing his Chapter 7
bankruptcy to determine whether he made fraudulent transfers to
his wife.

According to the report, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Alan H.W. Shiff
granted the trustee's request to force Dunne to turn over the
documents, according to court papers filed Oct. 3 in Bridgeport,
Connecticut.  The judge deferred ruling on a separate request to
hold Mr. Dunne in contempt for refusing to answer questions under
an earlier order.  Mr. Dunne must attend a meeting of his
creditors, where he will be questioned about his finances, and
"shall fully and completely answer all questions posed by the
trustee and turn over all documents requested by the trustee
without limitation," Judge Shiff ruled.  A failure to testify at a
creditors meeting has been found to be a basis for denying a
discharge of debts, the judge said.

The report notes that creditors have sued claiming Mr. Dunne may
have fraudulently transferred tens of millions of dollars to his
wife before seeking bankruptcy in an attempt to move the money out
of creditors reach.  All of Dunne's creditors are in Ireland or
the U.K., except for a lawyer who represented him in a Connecticut
lawsuit, court papers show.  Mr. Dunne filed a list claiming
assets of $55.2 million, including $40.8 million in real estate,
and debt of $942.2 million, with $280.2 million in secured debt
and $612.2 million in unsecured debt.

The report discloses that Mr. Dunne bought the former Berkeley
Court, the Towers and Jurys Hotel in 2005 for about 380 million
euros ($503 million).  At the time it was the highest price per
acre paid for sites in Ireland.  His banks, Royal Bank of Scotland
Group Plc's Ulster Bank, Rabobank Groep NV and Kaupthing, took
control of the hotels in 2009 after planning authorities refused
Dunne permission to redevelop the 6.8-acre (2.8-hectare) site amid
a real-estate market collapse.  Mr. Dunne was declared bankrupt in
Ireland's High Court in July.

                          About Sean Dunne

Irish real estate developer Sean Dunne filed a liquidating
Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition (Bankr. D. Conn. Case No. 13-50484)
on March 30, 2013, in Bridgeport, Connecticut.  Mr. Dunne says he
now lives and works in Connecticut.

Mr. Dunne said he filed for bankruptcy in the U.S. because Ulster
Bank was applying to an Irish court for permission to commence
bankruptcy proceedings there.

The formal lists of property and debt Dunne filed in May in the
U.S. court shows assets with a total claimed value of $55.2
million and liabilities totaling $942.2 million.  The assets
include $40.8 million of real estate, all in Ireland. Among the
$280.2 million in secured creditors and $612.2 million in
unsecured creditors, almost all are in Ireland.


SEMINOLE TRIBE: Fitch Assigns 'BB+' Issuer Default Rating
---------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings assigns a 'BBB' rating to Seminole Tribe of
Florida's (STOF) proposed $395 million incremental term loan B.
Fitch also upgrades STOF's Issuer Default Rating (IDR) to 'BBB-'
from 'BB+', the gaming division's parity debt to 'BBB' from 'BBB-'
and the tribe's special obligation bonds to 'BBB-' from 'BB+'. The
Rating Outlook is revised to Stable from Positive. A full list of
rating actions follows at the end of this release.

The proposed term loan will be pari passu with STOF's existing
term loan and gaming enterprise revenue bonds and will be secured
by a revenue pledge of STOF's gaming operations, which include six
major casinos in the state of Florida with nearly 12,500 slot
machines and approximately 340 table games.

The proposed term loan will amortize at a rate of 10% per year
with a balloon payment in 2017 of approximately $237 million. The
proceeds will be used to repay $367 million in outstanding 2010
bonds and pay associated fees including $21 million in call
premiums. The term loan is being issued pursuant to the accordion
option on the existing term loan, which permits STOF to issue
incremental loans as long as pro forma net leverage remains at or
below 2x, or up to $500 million, whichever is greater.

Key Rating Drivers

The upgrade of STOF's IDR to investment grade is supported by
Fitch's increased comfort with the tribe's governance and fiscal
management. Previously Fitch downgraded STOF out of investment
grade following the tribe receiving a Notice of Violation (NOV)
related to the spending of gaming revenues from National Indian
Gaming Commission (NIGC) in 2010. The tribe resolved all violation
cited in the NOV and has successfully undergone three annual
audits of its compliance with its Revenue Allocation Plan (RAP).
The audits were required per STOF's agreement with the NIGC;
however, the tribe elected to continue to undergo these audits on
voluntary basis, which Fitch views positively.

Also, since 2010 a new council has been elected in May 2011 and
has taken measures to improve the tribe's fiscal management. Major
measures include growing the tribe's reserves and eliminating per
capita payments to newly born minors. Governmental leadership has
been relatively stable since 2011. In May 2013, three of the five
council seats were up for election with two of the incumbents
remaining in their respective positions. According to tribal
leadership there was no major push back related to the
implementation of the resolution to eliminate per capita payments
for newly born minors. The resolution went into effect April 2013.

The tribe's existing reserves provide for approximately three
months of governmental operations including per capita payments,
which is an improvement from two months of operations a year ago
and less than a month of operations prior to the new council
taking office. The tribe intends to grow the reserve with
surpluses, which are targeted at roughly 5% of gaming EBITDA.
STOF's plans for the reserve are not yet concrete.

STOF's positive operating trends also contribute to the upgrade.
STOF's gaming division has reported 11 straight quarters of
revenue growth, which is partially attributed to expansions at
existing properties (most notably in Tampa and Coconut Creek).
STOF's gaming operations also benefit from limited competition,
recent elimination of internet cafes and Florida's stronger than
national average economic recovery. STOF's gaming division
revenues and EBITDA for the last-12 month (LTM) period ending
June 30, 2013 grew by 5% and 3%, respectively, on a year-over-year
basis.

As a result of EBITDA growth and a heavy mix of amortizing debt in
STOF's capital structure, STOF's total debt/EBITDA ratio as of
June 30, 2013 improved to 1.7x from 2.0x for the prior year's
period. Excluding the tribe's special obligation bonds, leverage
is 1.3x. Pro forma for this transaction and the repayment of the
series 2005A bonds (repaid Oct. 1, 2013) debt service coverage is
4.9x including special obligations bonds and is approximately 6.5x
with gaming division debt only.

STOF's 'BBB-' IDR is commensurate with total leverage (including
tribal debt) of 2x or less although there is room for leverage to
exceed this threshold temporarily if Fitch expects that leverage
will decline back within 2x over a relatively short time horizon.
Fitch believes that STOF may look to expand at its flagship
properties once there is greater certainty over the state's
regulatory landscape. This may result in additional borrowing;
however, Fitch does not expect total leverage to exceed 2.5x
through the development cycle.

Regulatory Overhang

Fitch believes that there is adequate cushion in STOF's financial
position to maintain investment grade ratings in an event the
state approves additional gaming in the state or STOF's authority
to operate table games (about 18% of EBITDA) is allowed to expire
in 2015. (The two events are mutually exclusive under most
plausible scenarios because if the state permits table games at
commercial casinos STOF's ability to operate table games will
automatically be extended). STOF's improved fiscal prudence on the
tribal side and ability to stop or reduce revenue share payments
in case of gaming expansion or expiration of table games provide
an additional degree of comfort.

Per its 2010 compact with the state, STOF can suspend revenue
share payments completely if gaming is approved outside of
southeast Florida. STOF can suspend payments from its Broward
County casinos if integrated resorts are approved in southeast
Florida or if STOF's ability to operate table games is not
extended past 2015. In an event pari-mutuels in southeast Florida
are permitted table games, STOF can reduce payments from its
Broward County casinos by 50% if revenues there drop below a base
level established prior to table games becoming operational at the
pari mutuels. The effective revenue share is about 12% of gaming
revenue and about half of the revenues are generated in Broward
County.

Fitch analyzed scenarios that include additional competition or
suspension of table games and estimated the net negative effect on
STOF's EBITDA in a range of 5%-15%. A 15% decline in EBITDA would
raise leverage to approximately 2x, which is still in-line with
investment grade IDR. Fitch believes that the loss of table games
is unlikely and would be politically unpalatable. Cancelation of
table games would cause meaningful job losses since table games
are labor intensive and would cut approximately $100 million -
$150 million of revenue share to the state.

The state's 2014 legislative session starts March 4, 2014 and ends
May 2, 2014. Fitch expects large resort operators such as Las
Vegas Sands and Genting Group to continue to lobby for an
integrated resorts bill while southeast Florida pari-mutuels will
seek greater parity with STOF's gaming operations vis-a-vis tax
rate and/or ability to operate table games. The legislature may
also consider other gaming expansion scenarios analyzed in the
Spectrum Gaming report (see section below) such as gaming at all
of the state's pari mutuel facilities. There are three tracks in
Tampa, one in Naples and one in Palm Beach that would affect STOF
if permitted to convert to casinos (there are also facilities in
Fort Pierce and Sarasota that may have less direct impact).

Spectrum Report

On Oct. 1, 2014, Spectrum Gaming released a draft of the second
part of its gaming study report commissioned by the Florida
Senate's gaming committee. The report's findings may help shape
the discussions going into the state's 2014 legislative session.

Spectrum's report analyzed 12 scenarios from status quo to
permitting all forms of gaming at the state's 28 pari-mutuel
facilities and six new integrated resorts throughout the state. A
scenario of permitting craps and roulette at STOF's casinos was
also reviewed. Although the report did not provide explicit
recommendations with respect to which scenario is best, the report
did examine the positive and negative attributes plus estimated
incremental tax revenues and jobs created for each scenario.

Key takeaways from the report with respect to STOF:

-- A comparison of baseline scenario (STOF's tables are allowed
    to expire) and table game extension scenario shows a
    difference of 1,937 jobs in the first relevant year (Year 2);

-- Addition of craps and roulette at STOF's casinos would create
    366 incremental jobs over the extension scenario in Year 2;

-- Under most expansion scenarios the state can more than offset
    the loss of compact payments from STOF especially if the
    Pennsylvania gaming tax model is instituted. The report
    suggests that the Pennsylvania tax model of higher tax on
    slots and lower tax on tables balances well job creation and
    tax revenue maximization;

-- The report describes the scenario of having two integrated
    resort casinos in southeast Florida as having a 'desirable
    combination of economic benefits via expansion while
    minimizing the negative consequences.'

Liquidity

STOF's liquidity is strong with considerable cash balances at the
governmental and the gaming division levels. The nearest maturity
is the incremental term loan in 2017, at which point $237 million
will be remaining. STOF's gaming division maintains modest
positive FCF after tribal distributions, which it uses for debt
reduction or to grow cash balances. The tribe operates the
government at a surplus, which are roughly targeted at 5% of the
gaming division's EBITDA. Outside of gaming, the tribe also
receives dividends from its Hard Rock International business.

Transaction Specific Ratings

The one notch differential on the gaming division debt (includes
the bonds and the term loan) relative to the IDR and the
investment grade rating reflects:

-- The additional debt incurrence test in the credit agreement
   of 2.5x net leverage for the senior lien gaming division debt
   and gaming division interest coverage by EBITDA test of 3.0x.
   The 2005B bonds limit debt incurrence if parity debt leverage
   exceeds 3.5x.

-- The gaming division seniority in the casino revenue trustee
   guided waterfall relative to the special obligations bonds;

-- The gaming division debt holders' ability to shut off the flow
   of funds at the gaming division level before distributions into
   the Governmental Distribution Fund are made if MADS coverage by
   EBITDA goes below 2x. Money retained in the waterfall would go
   towards redeeming the gaming revenue debt with some carveouts
   for payments to the tribe to maintain critical governmental
   operations.

The special obligation bonds only have recourse to the funds
available in the Governmental Distribution Fund so there is risk
that the debt service on these bonds will not get paid if MADS
coverage goes below 2x on the gaming side. The special obligation
bondholders do not have recourse to the tribe outside of the cash
in the Governmental Distribution Fund, which receives the flow of
funds monies through a trustee after the gaming division debt is
paid. Money is released to the tribe from the Governmental
Distribution Fund once the debt service on the special obligation
bonds is paid.

The special obligation bonds' indenture has an additional debt
incurrence covenant stipulating that pari passu debt cannot exceed
15% of Available Revenues.

Rating Sensitivities

Positive: Future developments that may, individually or
collectively, lead to a Positive Outlook or an upgrade in the IDR
to 'BBB':

-- Greater clarity on gaming expansion in the state of Florida
   and STOF's ability to operate table games past 2015;

-- Continued growth in tribal reserves and a better understanding
   by Fitch of the potential uses of the reserves;

-- Total leverage including tribal debt declining and remaining
   below 1.5x.

Negative: Future developments that may, individually or
collectively, lead to a Negative Outlook or a downgrade in the IDR
to 'BB+':

-- A decline in the tribe's reserves related operating pressure
   on the gaming division and/or reversal in the tribe's prudent
   fiscal management;

-- Leverage increasing above 2x for extended period of time due
   to operating pressure or incremental borrowing. There is
   capacity in the ratings for leverage to increase slightly
   above 2x in conjunction with expansion related financing if
   Fitch expects STOF to deleverage back to below 2x quickly.

Inability to extend table games past 2015 or a broader gaming
expansion (such as slots at all of tracks) could lead to a
revision in the Outlook to Negative. Fitch considers both
scenarios to be low probability. The decision to revise the
Outlook would depend on STOF's financial profile at the time of
the event and the tribe's ability and willingness to adjust
governmental spending in anticipation of reduced casino
distributions.

Fitch upgrades the following ratings:

Seminole Tribe of Florida

-- IDR to 'BBB-' from 'BB+'; Outlook to Stable from Positive;

-- $367 million gaming division bonds, series 2010A&B to 'BBB'
    from 'BBB-';

-- $280 million gaming division bonds, series 2005B to 'BBB'
    from 'BBB-';

-- $737 million term loan B due 2020 to 'BBB' from 'BBB-';

-- $421 million special obligation bonds, series 2007A&B to
    'BBB-' from 'BB+';

-- $87 million special obligation bonds, series 2008A to 'BBB-'
     from 'BB+'.


SR REAL ESTATE: Must File Missing Schedules by Oct. 15
------------------------------------------------------
The deadline for SR Real Estate Holdings LLC to submit its missing
schedules and statements is Oct. 15, 2013.

SR Real Estate Holdings, LLC, owner of 14 parcels of real property
totaling 6,400 acres straddling Santa Cruz and Santa Clara
counties, filed a Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. N.D. Cal. Case No.
13-54471) in San Jose, California, on Aug. 20, 2013.  The Debtor
estimated that its assets total at least $10 million and
liabilities are at least $500 million.  Victor A. Vilaplana, Esq.,
at Foley and Lardner, serves as counsel to the Debtor.

This is the third bankruptcy filed with respect to the property.
The prior owner, Sargent Ranch, LLC, filed Chapter 11 cases in
January 2010 (Bankr. S.D. Cal. Case No. 10-00046-PB) and November
2011 (Bankr. S.D. Cal. Case No. 11-18853).  The second bankruptcy
case was dismissed in February 2012.


SR REAL ESTATE: Venue of Case Transferred to S.D. Cal.
--------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court approved a motion filed by SR Real
Estate Holdings, LLC and secured creditors DACA2010L L.P. and
Sargent Ranch Management Company, LLC, to transfer venue from the
United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of
California to the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of California.

The Debtor owns approximately 6400 acres in Gilroy, California.
Most of its listed creditors are also located in the Northern
District of California.  This is not, however, the first Chapter
11 filed by a debtor which asserted an interest in the Property.
Two prior cases were filed in the Southern District of California.
The first Chapter 11 case (No. 10-00046-PB11) was filed by Sargent
Ranch, LLC in the Southern District of California on Jan. 4, 2010,
and was later converted to a Chapter 7.  SRL scheduled the
Property as its sole asset.

The Chapter 7 Trustee abandoned the Property, and the case was
closed on Jan. 20, 2012.  Bankruptcy Judge Peter Bowie presided
over SRL's first case.

Before the first case closed, SRL filed a second chapter 11 case
(No. 11-18853-PB11), and again listed the Property as its sole
asset.  While this case was originally assigned to U.S. Bankruptcy
Judge Laura Taylor, she transferred it to Judge Bowie, who
dismissed the second case on Feb. 10, 2012.

SR Real Estate Holdings filed this third case on Aug. 20, 2013.
SR Real Estate's primary asset is the Property, and the debtor's
business address is in Palo Alto, California.

Given its business address and the location of the Property, venue
is proper in the Northern District of California.  This Chapter 11
case could not have been originally filed, however, in the
Southern District of California.

Despite its Northern California connections, SR Real Estate has
retained a prominent San Diego law firm as its proposed counsel,
which employment application is pending before the Northern
District of California court.

The moving parties primarily argue that Judge Bowie's familiarity
and experience with the issues surrounding the Property will
promote the economic and efficient administration of the Chapter
11 case.

The N.D. Cal. court agrees, and believes that notwithstanding the
location of the Property and SR Real Estate's creditors, this
factor dominates the outcome of this motion.

While there are no assurances that this case will wind up on Judge
Bowie's docket, the N.D. Cal. court assumes that the Southern
District of California will so assign it.

SUNTRUST CAPITAL: Fitch Affirms 'BB' Preferred Stock Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------
Following its large regional bank peer review, Fitch Ratings has
revised the Outlook to Positive from Stable on SunTrust Banks,
Inc. (STI) Issuer Default Ratings (IDRs). Please refer to the
release titled 'Fitch Takes Rating Actions on Its Large Regional
Bank Group Following Peer Review' dated Oct. 8, 2013 for a
discussion of rating actions taken on the large regional banks.

KEY RATING DRIVERS - IDR & VR

STI's ratings were affirmed at 'BBB+' reflecting the company's
solid liquidity profile, sound capital position, and improving
asset quality. The company's Outlook was revised to Positive from
Stable reflecting an improving overall risk profile.

STI's risk profile benefits from a reduction in residential
mortgage and home equity lending, and a material decline in
problem assets. Further, its risk profile incorporates a balanced
business mix, and a good degree of noninterest income. In light of
the low interest rate environment and subdued economic growth,
Fitch remains concerned relative to the industry stretching for
yield. Fitch notes that STI's securities portfolio continues to
have very little credit risk, and its loan growth suggests a
measured approach to extending credit in the current environment,
characterized as having very competitive pricing. Lastly, STI's
interest rate risk positioning is relatively neutral, not
suggesting any directional bets in its risk management.

Somewhat offsetting this, STI's earnings performance remains below
large regional bank peer averages, though it does reflect an
improving trend over the past several years. The improvement in
reported earnings has largely come from lower provision expenses.
Fitch views favorably STI's recent settlement with Freddie Mac,
however, noting that most of STI's legacy repurchase risk resides
with Fannie Mae.

RATING SENSITIVITIES - IDR & VR

Sustained and improved profitability metrics that are in line with
large bank regional peers, combined with the maintenance of
appropriate capital levels and the continuation of moderating
asset quality, could result in positive rating momentum for STI.
Fitch anticipates that resolution of the Positive Rating Outlook
may extend beyond 12 months. Conversely, deteriorating asset
quality trends, combined with a lack of improvement in
profitability metrics could pressure STI's current ratings, though
a downgrade is viewed as unlikely.

Fitch has affirmed the following ratings and Revised the Outlook
to Positive from Stable:

SunTrust Banks, Inc.

Long-term IDR at 'BBB+';
Short-term IDR at 'F2';
Viability Rating at 'bbb+';
Preferred stock at 'BB-';
Senior debt at 'BBB+';
Subordinated debt at 'BBB';

T.H. PROPERTIES: Undeclared Transfers Not Tax-Exempt
----------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Stephen Raslavich granted Upper Hanover
Township's motion for summary judgment, holding that the transfers
of certain real estate by debtors T.H. Properties, LP, T.H.
Properties, INC., Morgan Hill Drive, LP, and Northgate Development
Company, LP, are not exempt from transfer taxes.

The Debtors are residential real estate developers.  They proposed
a Chapter 11 plan wherein the equity owners would retain their
interests.  Because the plan did not propose to pay creditors in
full, this posed absolute priority problems. The owners addressed
that problem by making a "new value" contribution.  This
contribution was in the form of real property, three phases
(Phases IV, V, and VI) of the land referred to as Northgate.  The
Debtors had no interest in any of the three properties. The
contribution of the Northgate phases to the plan constituted the
"new value" necessary to satisfy the absolute priority rule and to
obtain confirmation.

The mechanics of the transfer of the real estate are of central
importance.  The Northgate phases were contributed under a
Transfer and Development Agreement (TDA).  Under the TDA, the
Northgate phases were to be transferred to the Debtor on the
Effective Date and then immediately transferred out, either to New
Stream Real Estate, LLC, the lienholder on Northgate, or its
designee.  The Debtors retained an ownership interest in Northgate
to the extent of any net profits from Phases IV and V. Those
profits would pay creditors under the plan.

New Stream designated an entity known as GSRE 25 LLC to receive
the Northgate property from the Debtor.  GSRE 25 has commenced
development and sale of the Northgate properties.  Operating under
the belief that no transfer tax applies, title companies have
assisted in the sales without requiring payment of transfer tax.
As of the date of the Township's Summary Judgment Motion, 31
Northgate properties were developed and sold for which no transfer
tax was paid.  Unpaid transfer taxes on these sales total
$24,317.47.  This prompted the Township's complaint.

Judge Raslavich noted that the failure to assess transfer taxes is
allegedly based on an express Bankruptcy Code provision in Sec.
1146(a): "The issuance, transfer, or exchange of a security, or
the making or delivery of an instrument of transfer under a plan
confirmed under section 1129 of this title, may not be taxed under
any law imposing a stamp tax or similar tax."

Congress enacted that provision to facilitate reorganization by
giving debtors tax relief from stamp or similar tax, such as
transfer taxes, for transfers of property pursuant to an
instrument of transfer under a confirmed plan.  Exempting the
transaction from tax reduces obligations encumbering the property,
thereby making a greater portion of the sale proceeds available to
creditors and affords debtor a quick and efficient means of
distributing and discharging its obligations under the plan.

Judge Raslavich, however, noted that the the subsequent transfers
from GSRE 25 to the future homeowners are not mentioned in the
Debtors' plan.  The transfers that are mentioned in the plan are
the transfers set forth in the TDA: i.e., the contribution of the
three Northgate phases to the Debtor and the Debtor's immediate
transfer of the same property to the Northgate lienholder's
designee.

According to Judge Raslavich, the Court is constrained to agree
with the Township that the present matter is similar to the
facts in In re Kerner Printing Co., Inc., 188 B.R. 121, 124
(Bkrtcy.S.D.N.Y. 1995).  That case involved an effective date
transfer to the debtor and an immediate transfer of the same real
property to a newly created entity, New Kerner, which intended to
sell that real estate (condominiums) free from otherwise
applicable transfer taxes. That exemption was denied based on the
Court's finding that the subsequent sales of the condominiums
would not affect the plan's consummation.

Like the condominiums in Kerner, Judge Raslavich said the
Northgate property will be developed and sold independent of any
terms in the plan. No special authorization is needed for that to
occur.  It is up to GSRE 25 to decide how and when the developed
properties are sold. Nor are the future sales necessary for formal
consummation of the plan. There is no indication in the plan or
supporting documents that the ultimate transfers of the developed
real estate on a tax free basis was a condition precedent to
confirmation. Neither does the Debtor's obligation to pay any "net
profits" from Phases IV and V to creditors necessitate that
subsequent sales must necessarily be tax free. Taxes may reduce
net profit, but the plan does not guarantee a fixed payment;
merely that creditors be paid to the extent of net profits. The
connection that the future transfers have to the plan is
attenuated in this regard. As such, they cannot be considered as
having been made under a plan confirmed for present purposes.

The case is, UPPER HANOVER TOWNSHIP PLAINTIFF, v. T.H. PROPERTIES,
LP, T.H. PROPERTIES, INC., MORGAN HILL DRIVE, LP, NORTHGATE
DEVELOPMENT COMPANY, LP DEFENDANTS, Adv. Proc. No. 13-0058 (Bankr.

THQ INC: Sues Zuffa, EA Over Rights To UFC Video Game
-----------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that bankrupt video game developer THQ Inc. asked
a Delaware federal court on Oct. 4 for permission to avoid a
settlement it reached with Zuffa LLC to give up its rights to the
Ultimate Fighting Championship video game franchise just months
before filing for Chapter 11 protection, saying the agreement was
reached unfairly.

According to the report, in the complaint, THQ alleged former
competitor Electronic Arts Inc. told Zuffa, which owns the UFC,
about its struggling finances after breaking off negotiations to
buy THQ, and that the two companies worked together to unfairly.

The case is THQ Inc. v. Zuffa LLC et al., Case No. 1:13-cv-01651

                      About Trans-Lux Corporation

Norwalk, Conn.-based Trans-Lux Corporation (NYSE Amex: TLX) is a
designer and manufacturer of digital signage display solutions for
the financial, sports and entertainment, gaming and leasing
markets.

For the year ended Dec. 31, 2012, the Company incurred a net loss
of $1.36 million on $23.02 million of total revenues, as compared
with a net loss of $1.41 million on $23.75 million of total
revenues during the prior year.  As of March 31, 2013, the Company
had $20 million in total assets, $18.31 million in total
liabilities and $1.69 million in total stockholders' equity.

"Our independent registered public accounting firm has issued an
opinion on our consolidated financial statements that states that
the consolidated financial statements were prepared assuming we
will continue as a going concern and further states that the
continuing losses and uncertainty regarding the ability to make
the required minimum funding contributions to the pension plan as
well as the sinking fund payments on the Debentures and the
principal and interest payments on the Notes and the Debentures
raises substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going
concern.  As a result, if the Company is unable to (i) obtain
additional liquidity for working capital, (ii) make the required
minimum funding contributions to the pension plan and (iii) make
the required principal and interest payments on the Notes and
Debentures, there would be a significant adverse impact on the
financial position and the operating results of the Company,"

PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, in McLean, Virginia, issued a "going
concern" qualification on the consolidated financial statements
for the year ended Dec. 31, 2012.  The independent auditors noted
that the Company has reported net losses and a stockholders'
deficit at Dec. 31, 2012, and is engaged with its advisors and
certain stakeholders on alternatives for a possible restructuring
of its balance sheet, which raise substantial doubt about its
ability to continue as a going concern.

                        Bankruptcy Warning

"A delisting of our common stock by the NYSE and the failure of
our common stock to be listed on another national exchange could
have significant adverse consequences.  A delisting would likely
have a negative effect on the price of our common stock and would
impair stockholders' ability to sell or purchase our common stock.
As of December 31, 2012, we had $530 million of convertible notes
outstanding.  A 'fundamental change' is triggered under the terms
of our convertible notes if our shares of common stock are not
listed for trading on any of the NYSE, the American Stock
Exchange, the NASDAQ Global Market or the NASDAQ Global Select
Market.  Our receipt of a NYSE continued listing standards
notification described above did not trigger a fundamental change.
If a fundamental change occurs under the convertible notes, the
holders of the notes can require us to repurchase the notes in
full for cash.  We do not have adequate cash to repurchase the
notes.  In addition, the occurrence of a fundamental change under
the convertible notes that permits the holders of the convertible
notes to require a repurchase for cash is an event of default
under our credit facility.  Accordingly, the exercise of remedies
by holders of our convertible notes or lenders under our credit
facility as a result of a delisting would have a material adverse
effect on our liquidity and financial condition and could require
us to file for bankruptcy protection," according to the Company's
annual report for the year ended Dec. 31, 2012.

WEST AIRPORT PALMS: First-Citizens Balks at Delay of Sale
---------------------------------------------------------
First-Citizens Bank & Trust Company, as the holder of a loan
secured by a first priority lien on substantially all of the
assets of West Airport Palms Business Park, LLC, objected to the
Debtor's motion to extend the time to file a motion to enjoin a
foreclosure sale.

The Bank noted that ever since the Debtor filed the Chapter 11
case, the Debtor has promised the Bank and the Court that a buyer
would emerge to purchase the collateral and repay the Bank.  The
Bank has followed up multiple times with the Debtor regarding
details of the proposed sales, but details are never forthcoming.
In the Bank's view, the motion represents another attempt to delay
resolution of the matter.

The Debtor requested for a 21-day extension of time to file the
motion to enjoin foreclosure sale, and disclosure statement and
plan.  According to the Debtor, direct, immediate and substantial
harm will occur to the Debtor's interest in its real property --
real property consisting of industrial condominiums located at
2355-2385 N.W. 70th Avenue in Miami, Florida -- if it is not
granted an emergency hearing.  Specifically, if the Debtor is not
granted an emergency hearing on or before Oct. 1, 2013, it would
be unable to finalize negotiations with the remaining potential
purchaser(s) in its attempt to obtain a stalking horse contract
for the purchase of all or substantially all of its units.

The Debtor explained that, among other things:

   1. the Bank has obtained a summary judgment of foreclosure
      in the state court action setting a foreclosure sale date
      of Nov. 6, subject however to a motion for rehearing
      scheduled for Oct. 15;

   2. the Debtor continues to be in negotiations with various
      suitors for a bulk sale of all, or substantially all, of the
      condominium warehouse units, but no stalking horse contract
      has been entered into yet;

   3. a 21-day extension of time to permit the Debtor to execute
      a contract for sale of all, or substantially all, of the
      units, and prepare and file its motion to enjoin foreclosure
      sale, disclosure statement and plan would not prejudice the
      Bank, yet it would greatly benefit the unsecured investors
      who hold approximately $2 million of unsecured debt issued
      by the Debtor.

* CoreLogic Reports Show U.S. Foreclosure Inventory Down 33%
------------------------------------------------------------
CoreLogic(R), a residential property information, analytics and
services provider, on Oct. 8 released its August National
Foreclosure Report with a supplement featuring quarterly shadow
inventory data as of July 2013.

According to CoreLogic analysis:

-- There were 48,000 completed foreclosures in the U.S. in August
of 2013, down from 72,000 in August 2012, a year-over-year
decrease of 34 percent.  On a month-over-month basis, completed
foreclosures increased 1.3 percent, from 47,000 in July 2013*.

-- Overall residential shadow inventory, as of July 2013, was 1.9
million homes, accounting for a value of $293 billion and
representing a supply of 3.7 months.  This was down 22 percent
from a year ago, when it was at 2.4 million and down 38 percent
from its peak in 2010, when it reached 3 million homes.

As a basis of comparison to the 48,000 completed foreclosures
reported for August 2013, prior to the decline in the housing
market in 2007, completed foreclosures averaged 21,000 per month
nationwide between 2000 and 2006.  Completed foreclosures are an
indication of the total number of homes actually lost to
foreclosure.  Since the financial crisis began in September 2008,
there have been approximately 4.5 million completed foreclosures
across the country.

As of August 2013, approximately 939,000 homes in the U.S. were in
some stage of foreclosure, known as the foreclosure inventory,
compared to 1.4 million in August 2012, a year-over-year decrease
of 33 percent.  Month over month, the foreclosure inventory was
down 3.2 percent from August 2013 to July 2013.  The foreclosure
inventory as of August 2013 represented 2.4 percent of all homes
with a mortgage compared to 3.3 percent in August 2012.

At the end of August 2013, there were approximately 2.1 million
mortgages, or 5.3 percent, in serious delinquency (SDQ, defined as
90 days or more past due, including those loans in foreclosure or
real estate owned, REO).  The rate of seriously delinquent
mortgages is at its lowest level since December 2008.

"The foreclosure inventory continues to improve, as exhibited by
these recent numbers," said Dr. Mark Fleming, chief economist for
CoreLogic.  "A surge in completed foreclosures and a rise in the
foreclosure inventory is unlikely given continued house price
improvements and shortages of supply in many markets."

"Over the past year, the value of the U.S. shadow inventory
dropped by $87 billion--a sign of increased normalcy in the
housing market," said Anand Nallathambi, president and CEO of
CoreLogic.  "With a year-over-year decrease of 22 percent in July,
the shadow inventory has now declined steadily for 10 consecutive
months."

Foreclosure Highlights:

-- The five states with the highest number of completed
foreclosures for the 12 months ending in August 2013 were: Florida
(111,000), Michigan (60,000), California (58,000), Texas (43,000)
and Georgia (40,000).These five states accounted for almost half
of all completed foreclosures nationally.

-- The five states with the lowest number of completed
foreclosures for the 12 months ending in August 2013 were:
District of Columbia (94), North Dakota (463), Hawaii (492), West
Virginia (501) and Wyoming (723).

-- The five states with the highest foreclosure inventory as a
percentage of all mortgaged homes were: Florida (7.9 percent), New
Jersey (6.2 percent), New York (4.9 percent), Maine (4.0 percent)
and Connecticut (3.9 percent).

-- The five states with the lowest foreclosure inventory as a
percentage of all mortgaged homes were: Wyoming (0.4 percent),
Alaska (0.6 percent), North Dakota (0.7 percent), Nebraska (0.7
percent) and Colorado (0.7 percent).

Shadow Inventory Highlights:

-- As of July 2013, shadow inventory was under 2 million
properties, representing 3.7 months' supply or 85 percent of the
2.2 million properties that were seriously delinquent, in
foreclosure or REO.

-- Of the fewer than 2 million properties in the shadow inventory
(Figures 1 and 2), 874,000 properties were seriously delinquent
(1.8 months' supply), 661,000 were in some stage of foreclosure
(1.3 months' supply) and 318,000 were already in REO (0.6 months'
supply).

-- The value of shadow inventory was $293 billion as of July 2013,
down from $380 billion in July 2012.

CoreLogic estimates the current stock of properties in the shadow
inventory, also known as pending supply, by calculating the number
of properties that are seriously delinquent, in foreclosure or
held as REO by mortgage servicers, but not currently listed on
multiple listing services (MLSs).  Transition rates of
"delinquency to foreclosure" and "foreclosure to REO" are used to
identify the currently distressed unlisted properties most likely
to become REO properties.  Properties that are not yet delinquent,
but may become delinquent in the future, are not included in the
estimate of the current shadow inventory.  Shadow inventory is
typically not included in the official reporting measurements of
unsold inventory.

*July data was revised.  Revisions are standard, and to ensure
accuracy, CoreLogic incorporates newly released data to provide
updated results.

                Foreclosure Inventory Methodology

The data in this report represents foreclosure activity reported
through August 2013.

This report separates state data into judicial vs. non-judicial
foreclosure state categories.  In judicial foreclosure states,
lenders must provide evidence to the courts of delinquency in
order to move a borrower into foreclosure.  In non-judicial
foreclosure states, lenders can issue notices of default directly
to the borrower without court intervention.  This is an important
distinction since judicial states, as a rule, have longer
foreclosure timelines, thus affecting foreclosure statistics.

A completed foreclosure occurs when a property is auctioned and
results in the purchase of the home at auction by either a third
party, such as an investor, or by the lender.  If the home is
purchased by the lender, it is moved into the lender's real estate
owned (REO) inventory.  In "foreclosure by advertisement" states,
a redemption period begins after the auction and runs for a
statutory period, e.g., six months.  During that period, the
borrower may regain the foreclosed home by paying all amounts due
as calculated under the statute.  For purposes of this Foreclosure
Report, because so few homes are actually redeemed following an
auction, it is assumed that the foreclosure process ends in
"foreclosure by advertisement" states at the completion of the
auction.

The foreclosure inventory represents the number and share of
mortgaged homes that have been placed into the process of
foreclosure by the mortgage servicer.  Mortgage servicers start
the foreclosure process when the mortgage reaches a specific level
of serious delinquency as dictated by the investor for the
mortgage loan.  Once a foreclosure is "started," and absent the
borrower paying all amounts necessary to halt the foreclosure, the
home remains in foreclosure until the completed foreclosure
results in the sale to a third party at auction or the home enters
the lender's REO inventory.  The data in this report accounts for
only first liens against a property and does not include secondary
liens.  The foreclosure inventory is measured only against homes
that have an outstanding mortgage.  Homes with no mortgage liens
can never be in foreclosure and are, therefore, excluded from the
analysis.  Approximately one-third of homes nationally are owned
outright and do not have a mortgage.  CoreLogic has approximately
85 percent coverage of U.S. foreclosure data.

                  Shadow Inventory Methodology

CoreLogic uses its Loan Performance Servicing and Securities
databases to size the number of 90+ day delinquencies,
foreclosures and real estate owned (REO) properties.  Cure rates,
which measure the proportion of loans in one stage of default that
cured (versus moving to more severe states of default), are
applied to the number of loans in default at each stage of
default.  CoreLogic calculates the share of loans in default that
are currently listed on MLS by matching public record properties
in default to MLS active listings.  It applies the percentage of
defaulted loans that are currently listed to the estimate of
outstanding loans that will proceed to further stages of default
to calculate the pending supply inventory and adds that to the
reported visible inventory.  Visible inventory is compiled from
CoreLogic ListingTrends.  To determine months' supply for visible
and shadow inventories, CoreLogic uses the number of non-
seasonally adjusted home sales according to CoreLogic data.


* Investors Less Confident in Economic Recovery After Shutdown
--------------------------------------------------------------
Nearly three-quarters (72%) of investors surveyed say the
government shutdown and impending debt-ceiling issue has begun to
diminish their confidence in the economy's recovery, according to
a recent poll conducted by TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation.

While this issue appears to have impacted investors' economic
outlooks, many say that this sentiment won't affect how they plan
to approach their portfolios just yet.  Forty-one percent say they
haven't made changes to their investments yet but may pull back if
the issue continues.  Another 37 percent of investors say they
think the shutdown/debt-ceiling issue will pass quickly and
therefore they haven't taken action in their portfolios; 12
percent say they are taking advantage of opportunities as a result
of the issue; and 10 percent moved some money to cash temporarily.

And just how will the issue end? One in four investors say it is
very likely the government will default on its debt, while another
44 percent say it's somewhat likely.

"Some investors likely aren't adding positions or taking on new
risk yet until there is a clear picture as to how the shutdown and
debt-ceiling deadline will settle," said JJ Kinahan, chief
strategist at TD Ameritrade.  "With about one million people
furloughed from their government jobs there is concern that this
could have an impact on retail sales, housing and durable goods."

"The shutdown has brought with it renewed economic uncertainty,
and many investors may have questions about how to adapt their
positions for a variety of potential outcomes," said Tom Bradley,
president of retail distribution for TD Ameritrade.  "It's our
objective to provide investors with relevant information and
resources to help them answer these questions.  We encourage
investors to take advantage of the resources available to educate
themselves and seek guidance or help, if necessary, before making
their next move -- whatever that may be."

TD Ameritrade, Inc. is a broker-dealer subsidiary of TD Ameritrade
Holding Corporation.

                       About the Survey

A total of 693 consumers participated in an online survey
conducted by True North Market Insights on behalf of TD Ameritrade
Holding Corporation on October 3, 2013 and offered their views on
the federal government's shutdown and impact on economic and
investment conditions.  The 693 survey respondents represent a
random sample of the general population selected from a consumer
panel of individuals in the U.S. who have access to the Internet.
The margin of error in this survey is 3.7%.  This means that in
19 cases out of 20, survey results based on 693 respondents will
differ by no more than 3.7 percentage points in either direction
from what would have been obtained by seeking the opinions of all
eligible individuals in the U.S. who are online.  True North

* New York Regulator Bars Falcone from Insurance Business
---------------------------------------------------------
Leslie Scism, writing for The Wall Street Journal, reported that
New York's top financial-services watchdog has banned investor
Philip Falcone from any role running an insurance company licensed
by the state for seven years, citing a recent civil settlement by
the Harbinger Capital Partners LLC founder with federal securities
regulators.

According to the report, in August, Mr. Falcone admitted
wrongdoing, agreed to pay $18 million and consented to a ban on
acting as investment adviser for five years to resolve two civil
lawsuits filed by the Securities and Exchange Commission against
Mr. Falcone and Harbinger Capital.

The suits alleged, in part, that Mr. Falcone and Harbinger Capital
had failed to disclose to investors a $113 million personal loan
Mr. Falcone took out from a Harbinger Capital fund to pay his own
taxes, even as other investors in the fund were prevented from
pulling their money, the report related.

New York Department of Financial Services Superintendent Benjamin
M. Lawsky said on Oct. 7 in announcing the state's ban that the
SEC settlement demonstrated "serious issues related to Mr.
Falcone's fitness to control the management, operations, and
policyholder funds of a New York insurance company," the report
further related.

Neither the New York nor the SEC actions bar Mr. Falcone from
continuing in his role as chairman and chief executive of
Harbinger Group Inc., a conglomerate that owns two life-insurance
companies, Baltimore-based Fidelity & Guaranty Life Insurance Co.,
which sells insurance products outside of New York, and Fidelity &
Guaranty Life Insurance Co. of New York, which is licensed to
operate in the state, the report noted.


* Top Bankers Issue Warning on U.S. Debt Proposal
-------------------------------------------------
Deborah Solomon and Dan Strumpf, writing for The Wall Street
Journal, reported that top Wall Street executives are warning that
any effort to pay interest on U.S. debt before other obligations
such as Social Security, a strategy some lawmakers think would
placate bond investors if the government breaches its borrowing
limit, would pose severe risks to financial markets and the
economy.

According to the report, in recent meetings with Republican
lawmakers and Obama administration officials, chief executives of
the nation's largest financial institutions said putting some
payments ahead of others would create insurmountable uncertainty
for investors, drive up borrowing costs and cause market
disruptions, according to people familiar with the meetings.

The Wall Street pushback against an idea backed by the House GOP
is part of an effort to force a resolution on raising the nation's
borrowing limit, which the Treasury has said it expects to reach
by mid-October, the report related.  If no deal is reached, many
outside observers, including debt-ratings firms, assume the
government would begin prioritizing payments to bondholders over
others, such as Social Security recipients or veterans, rather
than risk defaulting on U.S. debt.

Market participants say while the U.S. might not technically
default on its debt, missing any type of payment would likely harm
the economy, the report said.  "This is going to be permanently
damaging for business and consumer confidence if this happens.
People will never look at the United States Treasury the same ever
again," said Tom Simons, money-market economist at Jefferies Group
LLC, an investment bank.

The fast-approaching deadline, paired with the inability of
Republicans and Democrats to make headway in resolving it, is
starting to ripple through global markets that until recently had
appeared blase, the report further related.

* Greenberg Glusker Unveils 2014 Middle Market Bankruptcy Trends
----------------------------------------------------------------
Greenberg Glusker's bankruptcy group has a front seat to Southern
California middle market company woes.  While the economy is
recovering, companies within the $50 million to $200 million
revenue range still have some dangerous waters to navigate.  The
practice group that spearheaded successful workouts for a number
of high-profile firms this year, including Rhythm & Hues, Inc. and
Imaging3, Inc. points to the following trends companies can plan
to encounter in 2014:

    * Corporate debt looms for some mid-market companies. As these
notes come due, any increase in interest rates could create a
domino effect on the enterprise, limiting the ability to raise
money to expand, hire and, perhaps of greatest concern, pay debt
without incurring fees or foreclosure.

    * "Many companies right now are breathing a sigh of relief
that the Federal Reserve is signaling it will keep rates low, but
we all know that will change in due course," says Brian Davidoff,
chair of the firm's bankruptcy group.  "We want our clients to
plan ahead now, lock in rates where possible and be ready for the
eventual increase in borrowing costs.

    * "Robust auctions, where over a dozen NDA's are received to
participate in the bidding process, are not an unusual occurrence
in these days of low interest rates," Mr. Davidoff notes.  "While
only a handful may be given the opportunity to bid, this reveals
the heightened appetite for distressed assets in the market."  The
bankruptcy team at Greenberg Glusker anticipates this trend to
continue well into 2014.

    * Compressed bankruptcy sales. "With limited access to outside
sources of funding, and the increased cost of steering a company
through a chapter 11, not only have more chapter 11's resulted in
a company being "in play" and put up for sale, but the time from
filing bankruptcy to final sale is much shorter than historically
has been the case.  We had two matters just this year, one in
which we represented the seller, and the other the buyer, where
the company was sold within 90 days of the bankruptcy filing,"
Davidoff added.  Mr. Davidoff handled the sale of Rhythm & Hues,
Inc., which was completed within 60 days of the bankruptcy filing.
"It's a good outcome because companies pay less in professional
fees and are able to satisfy their obligations."

Greenberg Glusker's bankruptcy partners Brian Davidoff,
John Melissinos, Jeffrey Krieger and Benjamin Alexander all agree
that if a bankruptcy is needed, then doing so in a growing economy
provides greater alternatives for restructuring.  Low interest
rates and an increased desire for distressed assets are just a few
factors that the bankruptcy experts anticipate will continue to
drive the overall trends in 2014.

* Alvarez & Marsal Receives Three Top Honors From TMA
-----------------------------------------------------
Global professional services firm Alvarez & Marsal (A&M) has
received three top honors from the Turnaround Management
Association (TMA): 2013 International Turnaround of the Year for
its work with Eircom Group Ltd., 2013 Mega Turnaround of the Year
for its work with Hawker Beechcraft, and 2013 Mid-Size Transaction
of the Year for its work with Arctic Glacier.

Additionally, restructuring veteran Bettina Whyte, a Managing
Director at A&M, has been inducted into the Turnaround,
Restructuring, and Distressed Investing Industry Hall of Fame for
her lasting positive impact on an industry dedicated to
stabilizing underperforming companies, rebuilding corporate value,
and retaining jobs.

Eircom Group, Ireland's largest telecommunications provider, faced
a deteriorating local economy and mounting competition from cable
operators.  In early 2011, the company hired A&M to lead a
restructuring and develop a new business plan that would stem
Eircom's EBITDA decline.  Fueled by intensive communication with a
large and diverse group of stakeholders -- including customers,
unions, staff, regulators, government, media, and a banking
syndicate comprised of more than 200 institutions -- A&M's Mike
Corner-Jones -- working with Eircom's advisers Morgan Stanley and
Gleacher Shacklock and its legal advisers Linklaters and Arthur
Cox -- identified examinership as the most effective corrective
plan.  The examinership process combines US-style Chapter 11
restructuring provisions and the UK scheme of arrangement, whereby
Eircom applied to the Irish court for an examiner to be appointed.
The mechanism was previously untested in a case of this size and
complexity and relatively unfamiliar to non-Irish stakeholders.
As a result, A&M reduced the debt level from EUR4 billion to
EUR2.3 billion, with first-lien lenders becoming equity holders
and second lien holders receiving a share in the reinstated debt
and equity alongside the senior debt.  The unprecedented process
lasted just 54 days, spanning March until June, making the
turnaround the largest, fastest and most complex restructuring in
Irish history, as well as the third largest restructuring in the
world in 2012.

Challenged by the economic downturn, Hawker Beechcraft faced
severe financial challenges in late 2011 and engaged Kirkland &
Ellis as counsel, Perella Weinberg Partners as investment banker,
and A&M as financial adviser.  The A&M team, led by Scott Brubaker
and Jeffery Stegenga, steered Hawker Beechcraft through a pre-
arranged Chapter 11 where the company's prepetition funded debt
was converted to equity and its operations were overhauled,
leading to a reorganization of its business around its most
profitable product lines.  Following the overwhelming acceptance
of the company's plan of reorganization, Hawker Beechcraft emerged
from Chapter 11, having shed approximately $2.6 billion in debt,
removed hundreds of millions of dollars of pension underfunding
and streamlined business operations.  The process maximized value
for each of the company's creditor constituencies and provided
ongoing employment for approximately 5,100 employees.  With a
renewed focus on its core Beechcraft product lines, the company
re-branded itself as the Beechcraft Company and is currently a
world-leading manufacturer of business, special mission, and
trainer/attack aircraft.

Arctic Glacier, North America's second largest packaged ice
producer and distributor serving over 75,000 retail, commercial,
and industrial customer locations throughout six provinces in
Canada and 19 states in the northeastern, central, and western
United States, suffered from substantial costs associated with an
antitrust investigation and class action litigation, poor weather,
and a significant debt load.  The A&M Canada team, led by Richard
Morawetz, served as the Monitor under the CCAA and Foreign
Representative under the Chapter 15 Proceedings.  A&M's
restructuring and corporate finance professionals played a
significant role, along with Arctic's financial adviser, in
implementing the sales process.  Arctic Glacier ultimately
completed the sale of its business to an affiliate of H.I.G.
Capital, LLC ("HIG"), a leading global private equity investment
firm, for approximately $420 million and the assumption of trade
debt, leases, and other contractual relationships.  As the lenders
were repaid in full from the proceeds of sale, A&M is currently
administering a Claims Process in its continuing role as CCAA
Monitor and Foreign Representative. Overall, the going concern
sale preserved numerous jobs and the supply chain and customer
base of the companies.  The Arctic Glacier proceedings constituted
the second largest Canadian insolvency proceedings in 2012.

A&M has been honored numerous times by the Turnaround Management
Association, the only international non-profit association
dedicated to corporate renewal and turnaround management.  A&M's
award-winning engagements include: Harry & David, Aquilex
Holdings, Chemtura, Rossignol, The Warnaco Group, AMERCO, Spiegel,
Inc., Treofan Germany GmbH, and Ihr Platz GmbH & Co.

                            *********

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.
