ACCIPITER COMMS: Has Access to Cash Collateral Until Aug. 29
------------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge George B. Nielsen signed off a second stipulated
order authorizing Accipiter Communications, Inc.'s use of cash
collateral.

The stipulation was entered among the Debtor, and the United
States, on behalf of the Rural Utilities Service of the U.S.
Department of Agriculture.

The U.S. Government, through RUS and the Rural TeleTel Bank, made
three sets of loans.  As of the Petition Date, the Debtor was
obligated and indebted to the Prepetition Lender under the
Prepetition Credit Agreements in an aggregate principal amount
totaling $20,755,214, plus, the U.S. Government asserts, unpaid
fees and expenses and accrued interest.

The Debtor would use the cash collateral to construct and operate
a telecommunications network in rural areas located in certain
portions of Maricopa and Yavapai Counties.  The Debtor has
furnished to the Prepetition Lender a budget for weekly cash
receipts and expenditures for the period ending Aug. 29, 2014.

As adequate protection for any diminution in the value of the
collateral, the Debtor will grant the prepetition lender
adequate protection payment, replacement lien, subject to carve
out on certain expenses.

A continued hearing on the Debtor's motion for cash collateral use
is set for Aug. 20, at 9:30 a.m.

               About Accipiter Communications, Inc.

Accipiter Communications, Inc., a Phoenix-based company that
provides telecommunications services to unserved or underserved,
mostly rurally-situated residences and businesses in central
Arizona, filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition (Bankr. D. Ariz.
Case No. 14-04372) in its hometown on March 28, 2014.

Accipiter provides telecommunications services to 1,409
residential subscribers and 231 business subscribers, including an
elementary school, an enforcement agency, a fire station, two
municipal water supply facilities, and a bank.

The Debtor is able to provide telecommunications services to rural
customers only by participating in two federal programs: revenue
subsidies from the federal Universal Service Fund, which is
administered under the authority of the Federal Communications
Commission, and capital debt financing provided under a rural
telecommunications loan program administered by the Rural
Utilities Service, an agency of the U.S. Department of
Agriculture.

As of the Petition Date, the Debtor owed $20.8 million in
aggregate principal to the RUS.  The Debtor believes there is
approximately $414,000 in prepetition general unsecured claims
held by trade vendors or other parties against the Debtor.  The
Debtor is a privately held company, with 55.4% of the stock held
by Lewis van Amerongen.  In its schedules, the Debtor listed
$31,250,731 in total assets and $21,628,826 in total liabilities.

The bankruptcy case is assigned to Judge George B. Nielsen Jr.

The Debtor has tapped Perkins Coie LLP as counsel.

Ilene J. Lashinsky, U.S. Trustee for Region 14, appointed these
three creditors to serve in the Official Committee of Unsecured
Creditors.  The Committee retained Stinson Leonard Street LLP as
counsel.


ADAYANA INC: Bankruptcy Court Approved Closing of Chapter 11 Case
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Robyn L. Moberly of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of Indiana closed the Chapter 11 case of Persist
Liquidating Corp., formerly known as Adayana, Inc.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on July 1, 2014, the
Debtor asked the Court to dismiss its case by June 30, 2014.

In December 2013, the Court allowed Persist Liquidating to sell
its assets and a month later Persist Liquidating reported that it
had consummated the sale.

Michael P. O'Neil, Esq., at Taft Stettinius & Hollister LLP, in
Indianapolis, Indiana, notes that given that all of its assets
have been sold, Persist Liquidating concedes that there is no hope
in proposing a confirmable plan of reorganization and
rehabilitating its business.

Persist Liquidating has entered into an agreement to amend and
terminate and office lease, which becomes effective once its
Chapter 11 case is dismissed, which provides for its former
subsidiary's continued use and occupancy of its primary offices
for a period of time.

Section 349(b) of the Bankruptcy Code provides that dismissal of a
case vacates certain judgments and orders entered by the Court and
revests all property of the estate with the Debtor, unless the
Court orders otherwise. Persist Liquidating requests that the
dismissal of its Chapter 11 case leave unaltered and in place all
orders entered during the pendency of its case.

                        About Adayana, Inc.

Adayana, Inc., is a holding company, incorporated under the laws
of the state of Minnesota.  Its primary assets are its equity
ownership interests in two separate operating companies, ABG, an
Adayana Company, and Vertex Solutions, Inc., one of which is
headquartered in Indianapolis, and the other in Virginia.  Both
operating companies are in the "human capital" business, providing
an array of technology-based consulting and training services.

Adayana valued the subsidiaries' stock at $8 million to
$12 million as of March 31, 2013.  It also owns personal
property with book value of $949,280.

Adayana, along with its two subsidiaries, sought protection under
Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code (Bankr. S.D. Ind. Case No.
13-10919) on Oct. 14, 2013.

The Debtors are represented by Michael P. O'Neil, Esq., at Taft
Stettinius & Hollister LLP, in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The United States Trustee for Region 10 has been unable to appoint
an official committee under 11 U.S.C. Sec. 1102 in the case.


AEMETIS INC: Reports $2.7 Million Net Income in Second Quarter
--------------------------------------------------------------
Aemetis, Inc., filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing net income
of $2.72 million on $57.19 million of revenues for the three
months ended June 30, 2014, as compared with a net loss of $9.59
million on $47.35 million of revenues for the same period in 2013.

For the six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company reported net
income of $10.40 million on $117.86 million of revenues as
compared with a net loss of $19.40 million on $66.77 million of
revenues for the same period during the prior year.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2014, showed $95.44
million in total assets, $96.53 million in total liabilities and a
$1.08 million total stockholders' deficit.

A full-text copy of the Form 10-Q is available for free at:

                         http://is.gd/ghZMwA

                            About Aemetis

Cupertino, Calif.-based Aemetis, Inc., is an international
renewable fuels and specialty chemical company focused on the
production of advanced fuels and chemicals and the acquisition,
development and commercialization of innovative technologies that
replace traditional petroleum-based products and convert first-
generation ethanol and biodiesel plants into advanced
biorefineries.

Aemetis reported a net loss of $24.43 million on $177.51 million
of revenues for the year ended Dec. 31, 2013, as compared with a
net loss of $4.28 million on $189.04 million of revenues in 2012.

                         Bankruptcy Warning

"The adoptions of new technologies at our ethanol and biodiesel
plants, along with working capital, are financed in part through
debt facilities.  We may need to seek additional financing to
continue or grow our operations.  However, generally unfavorable
credit market conditions may make it difficult to obtain necessary
capital or additional debt financing on commercially viable terms
or at all.  If we are unable to pay our debt we may be forced to
delay or cancel capital expenditures, sell assets, restructure our
indebtedness, seek additional financing, or file for bankruptcy
protection," the Company said in the Annual Report for the year
ended Dec. 31, 2013.


AGUA CALIENTE: Fitch Affirms 'BB' Issuer Default Rating
-------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla
Indians' Issuer Default Rating (IDR) at 'BB'. Fitch has also
affirmed Agua Caliente's gaming revenue bonds at 'BB+'.  The
Rating Outlook is Stable.

Key Rating Drivers

The affirmation of Agua Caliente's IDR at 'BB' reflects the
tribe's strong balance sheet, the tribe's continued commitment to
a sustainable tribal per capita distribution policy, stable
operating profile and a level of diversification relative to other
Native American gaming issuers.

Agua Caliente's credit metrics are solid.  For the last 12-month
(LTM) period ending March 31, 2014, debt/EBITDA and EBITDA/debt
service ratios are at 1.8x and 2.9x, respectively.  Fitch expects
the debt/EBITDA ratio to decline to or below 1.3x by fiscal year
ending Sept. 30, 2016 with interim debt amortization being the
main catalyst for the improvement.  Debt service coverage will
remain at around 3x increasing closer to 4x by fiscal 2016 as a
meaningful tranche of debt matures in October 2015 resulting in a
material decline in annual debt service.  At that time, credit
metrics will be more consistent with the higher end of the 'BB'
rating category.  Agua Caliente has no plans to issue additional
debt although the tribe's compact permits a third casino.

Agua's revenues have been steadily recovering since bottoming in
2011.  The positive revenue trends have continued into 2014
despite the recent generally weak trends across U.S. regional
gaming markets.  Fitch expects Agua's operating performance to
remain stable, supported by improving employment and real estate
markets in its primary Inland Empire market.  The employment
levels in the Riverside-San Bernardino metro area in June 2014 are
up 2% from the same period in prior year and up 8% since 2009.
Federal Housing Finance Agency's housing index for the area is up
17% in January 2014 on a year-over-year basis and is up 33% from
the trough level reached in early 2012.  Economic conditions
remain fragile with unemployment and foreclosure rates exceeding
national averages.

The rating reflects Fitch's comfort with respect to the tribe's
commitment towards prudent tribal financial policies.  Previously,
Fitch was concerned that the tribe was depleting its reserves,
which were being used to supplement per capita payments when
casino distributions declined during the downturn.  Starting 2011,
the tribe reduced per capita payments in an effort to stabilize
the reserves and according to management has maintained or grown
reserves since then.  Fitch is unable to verify the tribal
reserves since the tribe does not share its governmental
financials and the management is somewhat opaque when discussing
the tribe's financial health.  Fitch views this lack of disclosure
as a credit negative.

Debt Structure and Liquidity

All of Agua Caliente's debt is pari passu with respect to
bondholders' security interest in the cash flows of the tribe's
casino gaming operations.  The 2003 bonds have the benefit of a
fully funded trustee held debt service reserve fund.  There are
also reserve accounts established for the 2006 and 2007 notes but
the tribe can access these funds between quarterly deficiency test
dates.

There is a financial maintenance coverage covenant set at 2.0x of
maximum annual debt service (MADS).  A breach of the covenant
would be an event of default.  However, Fitch considers this
threshold to be high relative to the agency's rated universe, so
obtaining a waiver or an amendment in case of a breach would not
be difficult, in Fitch's view.

There is also an additional debt test limiting debt issuance if
pro forma MADS coverage is less than 2.25x or leverage exceeds
3.0x.  There is a $20 million carveout for additional debt.  The
tribe's limited capacity to issue pari passu debt supports strong
recovery prospects for the bonds in an event of default and the
one notch positive differentiation from the IDR.

The tribe is required to make mandatory sinking fund payments with
respect to the debt outstanding, so there is low refinancing risk.
Cash at the casinos just meets cage cash and day-to-day operating
needs with the bulk of the tribe's cash kept at the governmental
level.  Fitch believes that the tribe's reserves remain sizable
but is not able to verify.  The tribe does not have access to
external liquidity, such as a revolving credit facility.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

Positive: Future developments that may, individually or
collectively, lead to positive rating action include:

   -- EBITDA/debt service exceeding 4.0x;
   -- Debt/EBITDA levels falling below 1.5x;
   -- Increased disclosure of the tribe's financials;
   -- Continued improvement in the operating environment.

Negative: Future developments that may, individually or
collectively, lead to negative rating action include:

   -- EBITDA/debt service falling below the 2.5x;
   -- Debt/EBITDA levels moving towards 3.0x;
   -- Undertaking of a large scale project or sharp operating
      declines leading to sizable deterioration in the credit
      metrics;
   -- Tribe straying away from its more prudent fiscal practices
      (i.e. depleting reserves).

Fitch affirms the following ratings:

Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians

   -- IDR at 'BB';
   -- Senior secured notes due 2015, 2016 and 2021 at 'BB+';
   -- Revenue bonds due 2018 at 'BB+'.


ALON REFINING: S&P Withdraws 'B' CCR on Debt Repayment
------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services withdrew its 'B' long-term
corporate credit rating on Alon Refining Krotz Springs Inc., a
single-asset refiner located in Krotz Springs, La.  S&P also
withdrew the 'B+' senior secured debt rating and '2' recovery
rating.  The company recently redeemed the remaining balance on
its senior secured debt.  S&P is withdrawing the ratings following
the full repayment of its senior secured debt.  The rating outlook
at the time of the withdrawal was stable.


AMERICAN APPAREL: Four New Directors Appointed to Board
-------------------------------------------------------
American Apparel, Inc., previously entered into a Nomination,
Standstill and Support Agreement with Standard General L.P.,
Standard General Master Fund L.P., P Standard General Ltd. and Dov
Charney.  In accordance with the terms of the Support Agreement
filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on July 23,
2014, five of the Company's seven directors resigned, effective 10
days following the filing of the Schedule 14F-1.  As of Aug. 2,
2014, Dov Charney, Alberto Chehebar, Robert Greene, Marvin Igelman
and Billy Mauer are no longer members of Board of Directors of the
Company.  No director resigned because of any disagreement with
the Company on any matter relating to the Company's operations,
policies, or practices.

On Aug. 2, 2014, immediately following the acceptance of those
resignations, Allan Mayer and David Danziger, the Company's two
remaining directors, appointed the following individuals to fill
the vacancies resulting from those resignations in accordance with
the terms of the Support Agreement:

   (i) David Glazek as a Class A director;

  (ii) Thomas J. Sullivan as a Class B director; and

(iii) Colleen B. Brown and Joseph Magnacca as Class C directors.

The Board has determined that each of Colleen B. Brown, David
Glazek, Joseph Magnacca and Thomas J. Sullivan qualifies as an
independent director under the rules of the NYSE MKT LLC.

On Aug. 5, 2014, the Board established the composition of certain
committees of the Board.  The Compensation Committee of the Board
consists of Allan Mayer, David Glazek and Joseph Magnacca, with
Allan Mayer serving as Chair.  The Nominating and Corporate
Governance Committee of the Board consists of Colleen B. Brown,
David Glazek, Allan Mayer and Thomas J. Sullivan, with Colleen B.
Brown serving as Chair.  The Suitability Committee of the Board,
established pursuant to the Support Agreement, consists of David
Danziger, Colleen B. Brown and Thomas J. Sullivan.

On July 31, 2014, in accordance with the Support Agreement, the
Board amended and restated the Bylaws of the Company to the form
adopted on Oct. 1, 2010, except that the size of the Board has
been fixed at nine directors.

                       About American Apparel

Los Angeles, Calif.-based American Apparel, Inc. (NYSE Amex: APP)
-- http://www.americanapparel.com/-- is a vertically integrated
manufacturer, distributor, and retailer of branded fashion basic
apparel.  As of September 2010, American Apparel employed over
10,000 people and operated 278 retail stores in 20 countries,
including the United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, United
Kingdom, Ireland, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the
Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Israel, Australia, Japan,
South Korea and China.

Amid liquidity problems and declining sales, American Apparel in
early 2011 reportedly tapped law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate,
Meagher & Flom and investment bank Rothschild Inc. for advice on a
restructuring.

In April 2011, American Apparel said it raised $14.9 million in
rescue financing from a group of investors led by Canadian
financier Michael Serruya and private equity firm Delavaco Capital
Corp., allowing the casual clothing retailer to meet obligations
to its lenders for the time being.  Under the deal, the investors
were buying 15.8 million shares of common stock at 90 cents
apiece.  The deal allows the investors to purchase additional
27.4 million shares at the same price.

American Apparel reported a net loss of $106.29 million on $633.94
million of net sales for the year ended Dec. 31, 2013, as compared
with a net loss of $37.27 million on $617.31 million of net sales
for the year ended Dec. 31, 2012.

As of Dec. 31, 2013, the Company had $333.75 million in total
assets, $411.15 million in total liabilities and a $77.40 million
total stockholders' deficit.

                           *     *     *

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Feb. 26, 2014,
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit

ANESTHESIA HEALTHCARE: Court Terminates Automatic Stay
------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Wendy L. Hagenau of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of Georgia terminated the automatic stay to
allow Bank of North Georgia, a division of Synovus Bank, creditor
in Anesthesia Healthcare Partners, Inc., and its debtor-
affiliates' Chapter 11 cases, to exercise its rights to foreclose,
repossess and dispose of real property lying in Land Lot 230 of
the 16th District, 2nd Section of Cobb County, Georgia being 2.54
acres commonly known as 4211 JVL Industrial Park Drive, Marietta,

so it could preserve its deficiency claim otherwise it would be
irreparably harmed by the continued imposition of the stay.

Debtor Medfinancial, LLC, did not oppose the relief requested at
the hearing on July 31, 2014.

The Bank will take no action to collect any amounts owed by
Medfinancial except pursuant to the bankruptcy case and by further

ANESTHESIA HEALTHCARE: US Trustee Blocks Employment of Carl Marks
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Guy G. Gebhardt, Acting U.S. Trustee for Region 21, filed with the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Georgia an
objection to Anesthesia Healthcare Partners, Inc., et al.'s
employment of Carl Marks Advisory Group, LLC, as their financial
and management consultant and to employ F. Duffield Meyercord, a
CMAG partner, as their chief restructuring officer.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on July 22, 2014, the
Debtors obtained permission from the Court to employ Carl Marks to
serve as financial and management consultant, and to appoint Carl
Marks partner F. Duffield Meyercord as chief restructuring
officer, in each case.  Carl Marks will, among other things,
assist the Debtors with: (i) preparing five-year financial models
for the go-forward business; (ii) preparing by-site financial
analysis to identify sites to sell and close; and (iii) preparing
weekly cash flow modeling.

The U.S. Trustee states in a court filing dated July 28, 2014,
that upon assuming the position of chief restructuring officer,
Mr. Meyercord would become a person in control of Debtors and
would consequently be an insider of the Debtors.  Under those
circumstances, Carl Marks could not be considered a "disinterested
person" under 11 U.S.C. Section 101(14)(A) and would consequently
be ineligible to be employed as a professional person by Debtors
under 11 U.S.C. Section 327(a).

According to the U.S. Trustee, the Court authorized the Debtors to
employ Carl Marks under the terms set forth in the application,
which, in turn, calls for Carl Marks to be employed pursuant to
the terms and conditions set forth in the consulting agreement,
which obligates the Debtors to pay Carl Marks a monthly fee of
$90,000 in advance and to pay Carl Mark's invoices upon receipt.
The Consulting Agreement provides that following entry of the
order authorizing the employment of Carl Marks, the Debtors will
pay all fees and expenses due pursuant to the Consulting
Agreement, as approved by the Court, as promptly as possible and
will work with Carl Marks to promptly file any and all necessary
applications regarding the fees and expenses with the Court.

These provisions of the Consulting Agreement pertaining to the
requirements for payment of Carl Marks fees and expenses to appear
to conflict with respect to the necessity vel non for prior court
approval, the U.S. Trustee says.  The U.S. Trustee asks that the
Consulting Agreement and approval order be revised to eliminate
the conflict and to impose an unambiguous requirement, in
accordance with 11 U.S.C. Section 330(a), that the Debtors will
make no payment of fees or expenses to Carl Marks without prior
court approval.

U.S. Trustee claims that Carl Marks "does not appear to be
obligated under the Consulting Agreement to comply with the
requirement of Bankruptcy Rule 2016(a) that [a]n entity seeking
interim or final compensation for services, or reimbursement of
necessary expenses, from the estate shall file an application
setting forth a detailed statement of (1) the services rendered,
time expended and expenses incurred, and (2) the amounts
requested."

"Without a detailed statement of the services rendered and time
expended, it would not be possible for the Court to conduct the
analysis contemplated by 11 U.S.C. Section 330(a) to determine
whether the compensation sought by CMAG is reasonable," the U.S.
Trustee says.

The U.S. Trustee objects to the provision of the Consulting
Agreement requiring Debtors to pay, as expenses incurred in the
performance of its duties, all reasonable legal fees incurred by
Carl Marks in connection with the performance of the engagement,
provided that AHP first consents to the retention of the counsel
for the services.  The Debtors, the U.S. Trustee claims, have
cited to no provision of the Bankruptcy Code that authorizes a
professional employed by a trustee or debtor in possession to
engage legal counsel at the expense of the bankruptcy estate, and
the U.S. Trustee is aware of none.

ANESTHESIA HEALTHCARE: US Trustee Objects to Scott Hoopes Hiring
----------------------------------------------------------------
Guy G. Gebhardt, Acting U.S. Trustee for Region 21, filed with the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Georgia an
objection to Anesthesia Healthcare Partners, Inc., et al.'s
employment of Scott R. Hoopes as special counsel.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on July 31, 2014, the
Debtors obtained authorization form the Court to employ Mr. Hoopes
and his law firm, Mills & Hoopes, LLC, as special counsel to
continue representing it in all matters pertaining to each Debtor
entity.

The U.S. Trustee claims in an objection filed with the Court on
July 29, 2014, that it is unclear whether the Debtors seeks
authorization to employ only Mr. Hoopes or whether they also seek
authorization to employ the M&H firm.  The prayer for relief in
the application refers only to Mr. Hoopes, while the approval
order authorizes the Debtors to employ the Firm.  The U.S. Trustee
asks that the Application be amended to clarify whether Debtors
seek to employ both Mr. Hoopes and M&H or only Mr. Hoopes.

The U.S. Trustee states in its objection that because Mr. Hoopes
and M&H have served as Debtors' general counsel for several years,
it is reasonable to assume that the Debtors have compensated them
from time to time for services rendered.  Under these
circumstances, the Application should address the issue of whether
Mr. Hoopes and M&H have received any preferential payments from
the Debtors that would be avoidable under 11 U.S.C. Section 547.
The U.S. Trustee says that if the bankruptcy estate has a claim
for the recovery of the avoidable transfer, it would create a
conflict of interest rendering Mr. Hoopes and M&H ineligible for
employment under 11 U.S.C. Section 327(a).

ANESTHESIA HEALTHCARE: Has Final OK to Use Cash Collateral
----------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Wendy L. Hagenau of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Eastern District of California entered a final order authorizing
Anesthesia Healthcare Partners, Inc. and its debtor-affiliates to
use cash collateral from May 15, 2014, through Sept. 30, 2014, and
to obtain postpetition financing.

A copy of the order on cash collateral use and DIP financing is
available for free at:

http://bankrupt.com/misc/ANESTHESIAHEALTHCARE_99_cashcollord.pdf

As adequate protection for any diminution in the value of its
interests in the prepetition collateral, the prepetition lender is
granted replacement liens and, if the replacement liens and
adequate protection payments are insufficient to provide adequate
protection, superpriority claims against the Debtors' estates.  As
additional adequate protection, the prepetition lender (i) may
accrue interest on account of its claims at the rate of interest
being charged under the prepetition loan documents as of the
Petition Date; and (ii) will accrue as part of its prepetition
claim the out-of-pocket costs and expenses incurred by the
prepetition lender.

DIP Financing

The Debtors sought to obtain postpetition financing up to the
aggregate principal amount of $1,000,000 from SunTrust Bank and to
grant priming liens to the DIP Lender on substantially all of the
Debtors' assets that constitute collateral and first priority
liens to the DIP Lender on any unencumbered property of the
Debtors, and super-priority administrative claim status to the DIP
Lender's claims.

The Debtors are authorized to borrow under the DIP loan an
aggregate outstanding principal amount not to exceed $1,000,000
(any amounts repaid under the DIP loan may be reborrowed through
the maturity date).

The DIP Lender is granted a valid, perfected, security interest
in, and liens upon all present and  after-acquired property of
each Debtor.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on July 18, 2014, the
Court previously entered an interim order authorizing the Debtors
to use cash collateral, and authorizing post-petition financing
until July 17, 2014.  The Debtors entered on June 10, 2014, into a
senior secured debtor-in-possession loan agreement with SunTrust
pursuant to which the Debtors will be provided a revolving credit
facility in an aggregate principal amount of $450,000.  Each
Debtor promised to pay the principal amount of all outstanding
loans on the final maturity date, which is
(i) Aug. 15, 2014; (ii) the consummation of any sale of all or
substantially all of the assets of the borrowers pursuant to
Section 363 of the Bankruptcy Code, (iii) if the final order has
not been entered, the date that is 25 calendar days after June 10,
2014, the closing date, and (iv) the date of the acceleration of
the loans and the termination of the commitment pursuant to
Section 10.

ARICENT TECHNOLOGIES: S&P Cuts Rating on 1st Lien Debt to 'B'
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered the recovery rating on
Aricent Technologies' first-lien credit facility to '3' from '2'
based the proposed $72 million add-on.  The '3' recovery rating
indicates S&P's expectation for meaningful (50% to 70%) recovery
in the event of a payment default.  S&P subsequently lowered the
issue-level rating on this debt to 'B' from 'B+', in accordance
with its notching criteria.  S&P expects the company to use
proceeds from the proposed add-on to redeem the balance of the
holding company payment-in-kind notes.

S&P's 'B' corporate credit rating on Aricent remains unchanged.
The outlook is stable and reflects S&P's expectation that the
company will stabilize and expand its revenues while generating
consistent profitability and positive free operating cash flow.

As reported by the TCR on May 7, 2014, Moody's Investors Service
downgraded the ratings of Auxilium Pharmaceuticals, Inc.,
including the Corporate Family Rating to B3 from B2.  "The
downgrade reflects Moody's expectations that declines in Testim,
Auxilium's testosterone gel, will materially reduce EBITDA
in 2014, resulting in negative free cash flow, a weakening
liquidity profile, and extremely high debt/EBITDA," said Moody's
Senior Vice President Michael Levesque.

In the May 6, 2014, edition of the TCR, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services lowered its corporate credit rating on Auxilium
Pharmaceuticals Inc. to 'CCC' from 'B-'.  "Our rating action on
Auxilium is predicated on our assessment of its liquidity profile
as "weak" and our expectation that the company is likely to
deplete its liquidity sources over the next 12 months," said
credit analyst Maryna Kandrukhin.

                   About Bank of the Carolinas

Mocksville, North Carolina-based Bank of the Carolinas Corporation
was formed in 2006 to serve as a holding company for Bank of the
Carolinas.  The Bank's primary market area is in the Piedmont
region of North Carolina.

Turlington and Company, LLP, in Lexington, North Carolina, issued
a "going concern" qualification on the consolidated financial
statements for the year ended Dec. 31, 2013.  The independent
auditors noted that the Company has suffered recurring credit
losses that have eroded certain regulatory capital ratios.  As of
Dec. 31, 2013, the Company is considered undercapitalized based on
their regulatory capital level.  This raises substantial doubt
about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

The Company reported a net loss available to common stockholders
of $2.33 million in 2013, a net loss available to common
stockholders of $5.53 million in 2012 and a net loss available to
common stockholders of $29.18 million in 2011.  The Company's
balance sheet at March 31, 2014, showed $428.05 million in total
assets, $426.06 million in total liabilities, and stockholders'
equity of $1.99 million.

BERNARD L. MADOFF: Picard Says Funds Can't Skirt $10-Mil. Suit
--------------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that Madoff wind-down trustee Irving Picard asked
a New York bankruptcy court not to dismiss a $10 million clawback
claim, saying the defendants, a group of individual trusts, are
mistakenly fixating on a good-faith issue that's not applicable.
According to the report, Picard says the defendants were
transferred $10 million in the last two years.  The funds seek to
dismiss that clawback claim on good-faith grounds, but attorneys
for Picard say the validity of the claim has nothing to do with
good faith, the report related.

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 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.

As reported by the TCR on April 9, 2013, Moody's Investors Service
downgraded Caesars Entertainment Corporation's Corporate Family
Rating to Caa2.

"The downgrade of Caesars' ratings considers that its same store
EBITDA growth in 2012-2013 has failed to materialize to any
significant degree, and so Caesars' credit metrics have
deteriorated and its free cash flow deficit will be higher than
Moody's previous expectations," stated Moody's analyst Peggy
Holloway.

subsidiaries, Caesars Entertainment Operating Co. (CEOC) and
Caesars Entertainment Resort Properties (CERP), as well
as the indirectly majority-owned Chester Downs and Marina, to
'CCC-' from 'CCC+'.  The downgrade reflects S&P's expectation that
Caesars' capital structure is unsustainable, and the amount of
cash the company will burn in 2014 and 2015 creates conditions
under which S&P believes a restructuring of some form is
increasingly likely over the near term absent an unanticipated
significantly favorable change in operating performance.

CAESARS ENTERTAINMENT: Incurs $466-Mil. Net Loss in 2nd Quarter
---------------------------------------------------------------

and Exchange Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q
disclosing a net loss attributable to the Company of $466.4
million on $2.18 billion of net revenues for the three months

"For the second quarter, our business demonstrated continued
strength in Las Vegas driven in part by our hospitality
investments, which was offset by the persistent softness in the
regional markets and Atlantic City," said Gary Loveman, chairman,
chief executive officer and president of Caesars Entertainment
Corporation.  "The LINQ and High Roller are stimulating greater
traffic to Caesars' affiliated properties in the vicinity and we

we are making across the enterprise coupled with ongoing capital
structure initiatives aimed at reducing leverage at CEOC will
produce a positive impact on our business."

CALUMET SPECIALTY: S&P Revises Outlook to Neg. & Affirms 'B+' CCR
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised the outlook on Calumet
Specialty Products Partners L.P. to negative from stable.  At the
same time, S&P affirmed its 'B+' corporate credit rating on
Calumet and its 'B+' issue-level rating on its senior unsecured
notes.  S&P also left its '4' recovery rating on the notes,
indicating a recovery expectation of 30% to 50%, unchanged.

"The outlook revision reflects our view that Calumet's financial
measures will be worse than previously anticipated mainly due to
narrowing refining margins and extended downtime at its Shreveport
refinery," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Nora Pickens.
S&P now anticipates debt to EBITDA to exceed 6x in 2014 and be
close to its downgrade trigger of 4.5x in 2015.  S&P also
forecasts the partnership to generate a very weak distribution
coverage ratio of 0.5x in 2014 and will therefore have to finance
the shortfall with debt.

A key credit consideration, in S&P's view, is Calumet's ability to
successfully fund and execute on its large backlog of organic
growth projects.  S&P believes the partnership's ability to fund
its growth projects with a sufficient amount of equity could be
difficult, given the partnership's weak distribution coverage
ratio.  S&P believes the partnership's Montana refinery expansion
presents the most execution risk due to permitting, construction,
and operational uncertainty.  The project, expected to cost about
$400 million, will double the refinery's capacity by 2016 and
contribute EBITDA of about $130 million.  Regarding the Dakota
Prairie facility, the first greenfield refinery built in the U.S.
for nearly 40 years, Calumet recently updated its cost estimate to
$350 million from $300 million.  Although the project remains on
schedule, the risk of additional capital overruns is present.
Finally, the Missouri Esters plant expansion remains on time and
on budget.

Calumet is organized as a traditional master limited partnership
(MLP), which is rare in the oil refining sector.  MLPs generally
pay flat to increasing distributions to their unitholders, and
unit prices tend to fall sharply when distributions are cut.
Because oil refining is so volatile, S&P believes the traditional
MLP structure is ill-suited for refiners.  In addition, oil
refining is a capital-intensive business and forces MLPs to rely
more heavily on external capital sources for funding needs.

The negative outlook reflects S&P's opinion that a narrowing
margin environment coupled with operational difficulties could
lead to weak financial measures and pressure the distribution
payout over the next 12 to 24 months.  S&P currently forecasts
debt to EBITDA of 6x in 2014, but recognize that results will be
influenced by industry conditions and the partnership's ability to
successfully integrate its newly acquired assets.  S&P could lower
the rating if it believes that Calumet appears unlikely to lower
debt to EBITDA below 4.5x by year-end 2015.  S&P could revise the
outlook to stable if it gains greater visibility on the
partnership's ability to improve its distribution coverage ratio
to 1x and maintain financial leverage of 4x to 4.5x.


CASH STORE: Court Authorizes Further Amended DIP Agreement

under the Sales Process.  The Further Amended DIP Agreement will
provide the necessary liquidity throughout the stay extension to
continue to negotiate a sale transaction to achieve a value
maximizing going concern outcome.

CHIQUITA BRANDS: Rejects Brazilians' Unsolicited Offer
------------------------------------------------------
David Gelles, writing for The New York Times' DealBook, reported
that Chiquita Brands International, the big banana producer,
rejected an unexpected takeover offer from two Brazilian companies
and said it planned to go ahead with its previously announced deal
to acquire Fyffes of Ireland.  According to the report, in a
letter to the Cutrale Group and the Safra Group, which made a
surprise offer of $13 a share, or about $611 million, Chiquita
said the offer was not in the best interest of its shareholders,
calling the bid "inadequate."

                         *     *     *

The March 17, 2014 edition of The Troubled Company Reporter, it
was reported that Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its
rating outlook on Chiquita Brands International Inc. to positive
from stable.  At the same time, S&P affirmed the 'B' corporate
credit rating, 'B' senior secured debt rating, and 'CCC+'
unsecured debt rating on the company.

The TCR, on Jan. 30, 2014, reported that Moody's Investors Service
changed the rating outlook for Chiquita Brands International Inc.
to stable from negative while affirming all ratings of the
company, including its B2 Corporate Family Rating (CFR) and B2-PD
Probability of Default Rating (PDR).  Moody's also affirmed the
company's SGL-3 liquidity rating. The change in the outlook to
stable reflects Moody's expectation for continued improvement in
Chiquita's credit metrics, which have recently benefitted from
margin improvement largely as a result of cost saving initiatives.

The Aug. 14, 2014, edition of the TCR reported that Moody's
Investors Service views the proposed non-binding all cash bid from
Cutrale Group and Safra Group to acquire Chiquita Brands
International, Inc. favorably but it does not impact Chiquita's B2
CFR or developing outlook.

                         Bankruptcy Warning

"If our and our subsidiaries' cash flows from operations,
refinancing sources and other liquidity-generating transactions
are insufficient to fund our respective debt service obligations,
we may be forced to reduce or delay capital expenditures, sell
material assets or operations, or seek additional capital.  We may
not be able to take any of these actions, and these actions may
not be successful or permit us or our subsidiaries to meet the
scheduled debt service obligations.  Furthermore, these actions
may not be permitted under the terms of existing or future debt
agreements."

"The ability to refinance the debt will depend on the condition of
the capital markets and our financial condition at such time.  Any
refinancing of the debt could be at higher interest rates and
increase debt service obligations and may require us and our
subsidiaries to comply with more onerous covenants, which could
further restrict our business operations.  The terms of existing
or future debt instruments may restrict us from adopting some of
these alternatives.  These alternative measures may not be
successful and may not permit us or our subsidiaries to meet
scheduled debt service obligations.  If we or our subsidiaries
cannot make scheduled payments on indebtedness, we or our
subsidiaries, as applicable, will be in default under one or more
of the debt agreements and, as a result we could be forced into
bankruptcy or liquidation," the Company said in its annual report
for the year ended Dec. 31, 2013.

Channel's senior secured term loan remains unchanged at 'CCC+'
following the company's upsize of the loan to $4 billion from $1.5
billion.  The rating on parent company CC Media Holdings remains
at 'CCC+' with a negative outlook, which reflects the risks
surrounding the long-term viability of the company's capital
structure.


CLEAREDGE: Aug. 19 Hearing on Bid for Exclusivity Extensions
------------------------------------------------------------
The Bankruptcy Court will convene a hearing on Aug. 19, 2014, at
11:00 a.m., to consider ClearEdge Power Inc., et al.'s motion for
extension in their exclusive periods.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Aug. 4, 2014, the
Debtors sought a three-month extension to Dec. 1, to file its Plan
and to Jan. 28, 2015, to seek acceptances of the Plan.  The Debtor
filed its chapter 11 petition on May 1, 2014, and has since sold
most of its assets to Doosan Corp.

The Debtor contended that there is "cause" for the extension
pursuant to Sec. 1121(d) of the Bankruptcy Code based on the
factors enumerated in the case of In re Express One International,
Inc. 194 B.R. 98 (Bankr. E.D. Tex. 1996).  The Debtor pointed out
that its case is large and complex with over 1,500 creditors,
equity holders, and parties in interest; $67 million in
liabilities; and offices both in the U.S. and abroad.

The Debtor contended that the fact that less than three months
have elapsed since the petition date and that this is its first
request for an extension weigh in favor of an extension.
Additionally, the Debtor argues that the consummation of the sale
of its assets, its timely filing of statements and schedules, and
its cooperation with the U.S. Trustee, all illustrate that good
faith progress is being made in the case.  The Debtor anticipates
filing a Plan soon after the close of the sale to Doosan.  The
Debtor is also paying obligations as they become due, and has made
progress in its negotiations with creditors.  The Debtor argues
that the existence of these factors necessitates an extension in
this case.

The Debtor's request was filed by Thomas R. Hwang, Esq. at Dorsey
& Whitney LLP of Palo Alto, CA.

                      About ClearEdge Power

Sunnyvale, California-based ClearEdge Power Inc. and two other

COLORADO EDUCATIONAL: Fitch Affirms 'B-' Rating on $34.7MM Bonds
----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings affirms the 'B-' on approximately $34.7 million in
outstanding charter school revenue bonds for the Colorado
Educational and Cultural Facilities Authority.  The bonds are
issued on behalf of The Academy.

The Rating Outlook is revised to Positive from Stable.

SECURITY

The bonds are essentially a general obligation of the school, with
each series secured by first liens on their respectively financed
facilities.  Each series of bonds is further secured by a debt
service reserve fund.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

IMPROVED OPERATIONS UNDERPIN POSITIVE OUTLOOK: The Academy
registered positive GAAP-based operating performance in fiscal
2013, which marks a departure from historical performance and was
reportedly sustained in fiscal 2014, although unaudited financials
(June 30 fiscal year) were unavailable for review.  Management
continues to work toward fully resolving the various reserve
violations and deficiencies in internal controls that are
documented in the annual audit.

DEBT MANAGEABILITY CONCERNS: Fitch considers the Academy's
considerable debt burden, limited track-record of generating at
least 1 times (x) current and maximum annual debt service (MADS)
coverage from net operating income, and elevated pro-forma debt to
net income available for debt service metric to be negative rating
factors.  Management obtained a waiver related to a covenant
breach under the 2004 Indenture and 2008 Supplemental Indenture.
There are no near-term debt plans.

SOUND DEMAND AND ENROLLMENT TRENDS: The Academy's demand profile
is sound and remains a fundamental credit strength.  Steady and
growing enrollment trends are supported by healthy school-wide
retention rates, favorable academic performance relative to
district- and state-wide averages, and an established reputation
given its 20-year operating history.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

SUSTAINED FINANCIAL IMPROVEMENT: Evidence of steady, sustained
improvement in audited financial results coupled with the full
resolution of various inadequacies in internal controls cited in
the audit would likely support upward rating movement.  Further,
Fitch expects management to continue to show evidence of progress
toward achieving full compliance with the school's various reserve
violations.

STANDARD SECTOR CONCERNS: The Academy's modest financial cushion,
substantial reliance on enrollment-driven per pupil funding, and
charter renewal risk are credit concerns common among all charter
school transactions.  If pressured, these issues could negatively
impact the rating over time.

TIMELY INFORMATION: Maintenance of the rating is contingent upon
receipt of timely and relevant information sufficient to maintain
an accurate rating.

CREDIT PROFILE

Located in Westminster, Colorado, The Academy has been in
operation since 1994, one year after the state enacted its initial
charter authorization law.  Since inception, the Academy's charter
authorizer was Adams County School District 12 (the district),
from which the school received a total of three charter renewals,
with the most recent five-year contract in effect until June 30,
2014.

Since Fitch's last review, The Academy applied to and was approved
by the Charter School Institute (CSI), an independent agency of
the Colorado Department of Education, to be authorized by CSI at
the expiration of its current contract with the district.  The
term of the new contract is in effect for five-years (June 30,
2019), which matches the previous charter term and represents
maximum allowable in the state.  Management reported that the
switch to CSI would better position the school to improve its
financial position through more continuous monitoring, support,
and resources.  The school received transfer consent from the
district in order to move forward with the authorizer change.

Importantly, CSI conducted its own due diligence prior to becoming
The Academy's authorizer, which included hiring a financial
services firm to complete a review of The Academy's internal
financial controls, budgeting procedures, and accuracy of
financial reporting.  The resulting assessment and recommendations
were presented to The Academy's administration and Board of
Directors.  Management reported to Fitch that it has already
initiated every recommendation, which is expected to help The
Academy resolve the various weaknesses in internal financial
controls cited in the audit.  The charter with CSI does have a
clause that allows for an early renewal evaluation of the charter
if The Academy fails to maintain a positive fund balance that
includes meeting the TABOR reserve requirement at the end of any
fiscal year ($16,132 in fiscal year-end 2013) or otherwise
materially fails to meet generally accepted standards of fiscal
management.

IMPROVED OPERATIONS UNDERPIN POSITIVE OUTLOOK

The Academy registered a 1.6% GAAP-based operating margin in
fiscal 2013, the first positive margin recorded since at least
fiscal 2009.  Total revenues grew by approximately 5.6%, aided by
enrollment growth of 4%, to 1,752.  Per pupil revenues (PPR)
constituted 84.2% of fiscal 2013 operating revenues, which
underscores the school's limited revenue diversity and financial
flexibility, although both characteristics are not atypical for
the sector.  The absence of salary increases in fiscal 2013 helped
to keep operating expenses virtually flat year-over-year.

While unaudited financial statements were not available for Fitch
to review, management reported that fiscal year-end 2014 financial
performance yielded a similar outcome to fiscal 2013, supported by
an enrollment gain of 3.1%, to 1,806, a 2.8% increase in PPR, and
continued cost restraint, although additional monies were
allocated to support teacher retention.  The school did experience
an unanticipated facilities-related issue (flooding) that was not
covered by insurance and resulted in a draw of $176,000 from the
repair and replacement fund associated with the series 2004 bonds.
Management plans to replenish the fund over a three-year period
and has since upgraded its insurance coverage to cover floods.

The state funding environment improved significantly in fiscal
2015, with management anticipating a PPR increase of 5.25%.
Additionally, the state legislature passed an increase in the
Charter School Capital Construction fund, which provides monies to
charter schools that are available for debt repayments.
Importantly, starting in fiscal 2015, PPR will flow through CSI as
a result of the authorizer change.

Revenue gains in fiscal 2015 will be somewhat offset by planned
pay increases, although Fitch notes that management continues to
set aside funds in the budget to achieve full compliance with
various reserve requirements.  Fitch notes that school is in the
process of repaying the district for certain bills paid by the
latter on behalf of the former.  Management reported that the
remaining repayment balance is $280,000, which will be paid in
monthly installments by the end of the 2014 calendar year.

SOUND DEMAND AND ENROLLMENT TRENDS

The Academy's demand profile is sound and remains a fundamental
credit strength.  Management expects total headcount enrollment to
continue to increase over the next one to two years before
reaching the school's maximum headcount capacity of around 1,900.
Headcount growth is supported by healthy school-wide retention
rates, which was 93.5% in academic year 2013-2014, above the 92%
achieved in the prior year.  Student demand benefits from the
school's favorable academic performance, evidenced by results on
the state of Colorado's annual Transitional Colorado Assessment
Program (TCAP) exam that continue to exceed to district- and
state-wide averages.  TCAP results for academic year 2013-14 will
be released Mid-August 2014.

It is anticipated that the Partnerships for Assessment of
Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) ELA and mathematics
assessments will replace TCAP reading, writing, and math
assessments in Spring 2015 (and will incorporate the 'Common
Core').  Additionally, Colorado will also administer the Colorado
Measures of Academic Success (CMAS) exams in social studies and
sciences in Spring 2015 (the former has never been a content area
on state examinations).  Management indicated that academic
instruction has been modified to ensure alignment with new state
standards.

DEBT MANAGEABILITY CONCERNS

The Academy's leverage profile remains an area of concern.
Current debt service of around $2.6 million represented a very
high 20% of fiscal 2013 revenues.  Improved operating performance
allowed the school to generate adequate coverage from net
operating income of 1.13x; however, Fitch notes that the school's
track-record of generating at or above 1x coverage is limited,
which is viewed as a credit weakness.  Transactional maximum
annual debt service (T-MADS), which incorporates the debt service
reserve funds when calculating the final maturity payments on each
series of bonds, was approximately $3 million (fiscal 2034) and
represented 23.5% of fiscal 2013 operating revenues.  T-MADS debt
service coverage from fiscal 2013 net operating income was 0.96x.
The Academy has no near-term debt plans.

As reported in Fitch's last credit review, The Academy
successfully attained a waiver for an unrestricted working capital
balance covenant breach.  Under the waiver, The Academy has until
fiscal year-end 2016 to achieve full compliance with the covenant.
Management is required to demonstrate progress on an annual cycle
toward re-establishing covenant compliance.  Failure to
demonstrate annual progress results in a modest monetary fine
rather than in a waiver invalidation.  Management believes the
timeframe set forth in the waiver provides sufficient flexibility
to achieve covenant compliance.  Fitch will continue to monitor
management's progress in future credit reviews.


CRAFT INTERNATIONAL: Seeks Authority to Hold Machine Gun Classes
----------------------------------------------------------------
Kelsey Butler, writing for The Deal, reported that Craft
International LLC, owned by a former Navy SEAL who was gunned down
by an acquaintance, will ask a Texas bankruptcy judge on Sept. 17
to allow it to provide machine gun classes.  According to the
report, in a motion filed in bankruptcy court, Craft said there is
a market for providing a training class "where a person can sign
up, go to a facility and just shoot a machine gun."  Craft,
however, wants to use a facility similar to Rough Creek Lodge,
where Chris Kyle, the owner, was fatally shot.

Craft International LLC, dba The Craft, in Dallas, Texas, filed a
voluntary Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 14-32605)
on May 30, 2014.  Craft is a consulting and training company
founded by the late U.S. Marine Chris Kyle.

The Hon. Stacey G. Jernigan presides over the case.  Seymour
Roberts, Jr., at Neligan Foley LLP, serves as the Debtor's general
counsel.  Sumner, Schick & Pace, LLP, serves as the Debtor's
litigation counsel.

Craft estimated assets of $50,000 to $100,000 and liabilities of
$1 million to $10 million.

The petition was signed by Steven Young, Craft's chief executive
officer and manager.


CUMULUS MEDIA: Posts $15.1 Million Net Income in Second Quarter

                        Bankruptcy Warning

"The lenders under the Credit Agreement have taken security
interests in substantially all of our consolidated assets, and we
have pledged the stock of certain of our subsidiaries to secure
the debt under the Credit Agreement.  If the lenders accelerate
the required repayment of borrowings, we may be forced to
liquidate certain assets to repay all or part of such borrowings,
and we cannot assure you that sufficient assets will remain after
we have paid all of the borrowings under such Credit Agreement.
If we were unable to repay those amounts, the lenders could
proceed against the collateral granted to them to secure that
indebtedness and we could be forced into bankruptcy or
liquidation," the Company said in the 2013 Annual Report.

                           *     *     *

Standard & Poor's Ratings Services in December, 2013, revised its
outlook on Atlanta, Ga.-based Cumulus Media Inc. to positive from
stable.  S&P also affirmed its 'B' corporate credit and existing
debt ratings on the company.

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.


CTI BIOPHARMA: FDA Grants Fast Track Designation to Pacritinib
--------------------------------------------------------------
CTI BioPharma Corp. announced that pacritinib has been granted
Fast Track designation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration
for the treatment of intermediate and high risk myelofibrosis,
including but not limited to patients with disease related
thrombocytopenia, patients experiencing treatment emergent
thrombocytopenia on other JAK2 therapy or patients who are
intolerant to or whose symptoms are sub-optimally managed on other
JAK2 therapy.  Pacritinib is an oral tyrosine kinase inhibitor
with dual activity against JAK2 and FLT3.  The drug candidate is
currently being evaluated in two Phase 3 clinical trials, known as
the PERSIST program, for patients with myelofibrosis.

"We are very pleased that the pacritinib development program in
myelofibrosis has been granted Fast Track designation, and we look
forward to continuing to work closely with the FDA on this
important drug candidate," stated James A. Bianco, M.D., president
and CEO.  "We believe that pacritinib's unique profile has the
potential to serve an unmet medical need that currently exists in
this patient population, particularly for those patients with
disease or therapy-related low platelet counts."

The Fast Track process is designed to facilitate the development,
and expedite the review of drugs to treat serious conditions and
fill an unmet medical need.  An unmet need is a condition whose
treatment or diagnosis is not addressed adequately by available
therapy.  The purpose of the Fast Track designation is to make
important new drugs available to the patient earlier.  The Fast
Track program also enables a company to submit sections of the NDA
on a rolling basis as data becomes available.  This enables the
FDA to review sections of the NDA as they are received, rather
than waiting until every section of the application is completed
before the entire application can be reviewed.  NDA review usually
does not begin until the company has submitted the entire
application to the FDA.  A drug program with Fast Track
designation enables the company to have early and frequent
communication with the FDA in the development and review of the
product candidate, often leading to faster drug approval and
access by patients.

DETROIT, MI: Plan Confirmation Hearing Pushed Back to Aug. 29
-------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Steven Rhodes of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern
District of Michigan, Southern Division, issued an eighth amended
order establishing procedures, deadlines and hearing dates
relating to the city of Detroit's plan of adjustment.

Pursuant to the amended order, the hearing on plan confirmation
will commence on Aug. 29, 2014, at 11:00 a.m.  On Aug. 29, the
Court will receive evidence from those creditors without counsel
whose motions to participate in the confirmation hearing were
granted.  The confirmation hearing will continue to the next phase
with the opening statements by the City and by the creditors whose
objections were filed by attorneys.  Additional plan confirmation
hearing dates, as necessary, will be Sept. 3-5, Sept. 8-12,
Sept. 15-19, Sept. 22-24, Sept. 29-Oct. 3, Oct. 6-7, and
Oct. 14-17.

Aug. 18 is the deadline to file briefs regarding:

   (a) The Court's authority to determine the reasonableness of
       fees under Section 943(b)(3) of the Bankruptcy Code; and

   (b) The admissibility of the report of the court-appointed
       expert, Martha Kopacz.

Aug. 18, and 19 if necessary, will be the date and time of the
hearing to receive the testimony of witness Robert Cline.
Aug. 19 will be the date and time of the hearing regarding  the
legality of the UTGO Settlement.  Aug. 20 is the deadline for the
City to file its sixth amended plan of adjustment.  Aug. 21 will
be the date and time of a status conference regarding the plan
confirmation process.  Aug. 29 will be the date of the final
pretrial conference on plan confirmation.

                        Cline Testimony

According to a July 30 document filed by Detroit, Robert Cline --
one of the City's key expert witnesses -- will not be available
after Aug. 19, 2014.  Mr. Cline was set to retire from Ernst &
Young as of August 1, and will be taking a position with the
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (the
"OECD"), a non-governmental organization headquartered in Paris,
of which the United States and several dozen other countries are
members.  Mr. Cline will be resident in the OECD's Paris office.
Once

Mr. Cline's employment with the OECD begins, the OECD's conflicts
of interest policy will prevent him from testifying at the
confirmation hearing.  Although Mr. Cline was originally scheduled
to begin his work at the OECD one week after his retirement, the
City negotiated with the OECD to delay Mr. Cline's start date so
that he could return to the U.S. to testify on August 18-19.
However, further delay will not be possible and, under Mr. Cline's
engagement letter with Jones Day, Mr. Cline is not obligated to
provide any services after August 19.

According to Detroit, Mr. Cline's testimony is central to the
City's case. Mr. Cline, an economist, was instrumental in building
Ernst & Young's revenue projections for the City's income taxes,
wagering taxes and utility users' taxes.  Those revenue
projections are a cornerstone of the City's Plan, and Mr. Cline is
a critical expert on this foundational issue. His testimony will
be relevant both to the feasibility of the Plan and the best
interest of creditors test.  Given the importance of Mr. Cline's
expert opinion and the inherent complexities involved in financial
projections and revenue forecasts, it is essential that the Court
hear Mr. Cline's testimony live and have the opportunity to ask
clarifying questions as necessary.

Accordingly, the City filed a motion July 30 asking that the Court
open the record of the hearing on confirmation of the City's Plan
of Adjustment on Aug. 18, 2014, to admit Mr. Cline's live
testimony and provide sufficient time for cross-examination.
The City does not believe that this will prejudice other parties
to the case, since Mr. Cline's testimony does not involve matters
that were newly disclosed, is largely self-contained, and would
not otherwise interfere with the order of proof at the hearing.

                  About City of 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.

The Hon. Steven Rhodes oversees the bankruptcy case.  Detroit is
represented by David G. Heiman, Esq., and Heather Lennox, Esq., at
Jones Day, in Cleveland, Ohio; Bruce Bennett, Esq., at Jones Day,
in Los Angeles, California; and Jonathan S. Green, Esq., and

A nine-member official committee of retired workers was appointed
in the case.  The Retirees' Committee is represented by Dentons US
LLP.  Lazard Freres & Co. LLC serves as the Retiree Committee's
financial advisor.


DETROIT, MI: Retiree Group Balks at COPs' Plan Objection
--------------------------------------------------------
The official committee of retired workers formed in the city of
Detroit's Chapter 9 case is asking the bankruptcy court to deny
the objections filed by holders of certificates of participation
("COPs") under Class 9 and their insurers to Detroit's 5th Amended
Plan of Adjustment.

The COPs Parties complain that the plan discriminates unfairly
against them by providing a purportedly greater, less risky
recovery for the pension claims in Classes 10 and 11 than the
recovery to what they mistakenly assert are their similarly
situated claims in Class 9.  The Committee says that the
objections by the COPs Parties should be denied as the Plan does
not unfairly discriminate in favor of the retirees under any test
and under the circumstances, the separate treatment of retirees
claims is justified and reasonable.

The Committee has agreed to support the Plan's treatment of
Classes 10 (General Retirement System), 11 (Police and Fire
System) and 12 (OPEB).  The Retiree Committee protects that
interests of more than 23,000 uniform and non uniform retirees and
their beneficiaries with respect to promised payments of pension,
health care and other post employment benefits ("OPEB").

Based upon the compromises and settlements in the final Plan, the
possibility of even more severe pension cuts in addition to the
drastic health care cuts without an agreement with the City, and
the Committee's assessment of the uncertainty of timely appellate
relief with respect to the complex Constitutional issues, the
Committee determined to support the Plan.

The Court earlier approved a stipulation extending the Committee's
deadline to file and serve its brief in support of confirmation of
the City's Plan until Aug. 4, 2014.

of the Plan is available for free at:

DETROIT, MI: UAW Says Librarians Should Be Excluded From Cuts
-------------------------------------------------------------
The International Union, United Automobile, Aerospace and
Agricultural Implement Workers of America ("UAW"), early this
month filed objections to the City of Detroit's 5th Amended Plan
of Adjustment.

The UAW, the collective bargaining representative of certain
current and former employees of the City of Detroit, says the Plan
may not apply the Class 11 and Class 12 cuts to the UAW-
represented employees or retirees of the Detroit Public Library.

The UAW noted that the Detroit Public Library is a separate and
independent municipal corporation that is not part of the City's
Chapter 9 case, and the CBAs with UAW remain in full force and
effect.  According to the UAW, the City's Plan improperly proposes
a reduction in their benefits even though the Library is not a
Chapter 9 debtor.

The City has included the UAW-represented librarians and others in
the City's Plan, specifically, in Class 11, where the City has
proposed cuts to accrued pension benefits, the ASF Recoupment, and
modification of future pension accruals, and in Class 12, where
the City has proposed to eliminate its obligations for OPEB
benefits through the payment of certain notes to a new proposed
VEBA.

In addition, the UAW argues, among other things, that the court
should not confirm the plan to any extent that employees and
retirees remain subject to further benefit cuts based on non-
receipt of outside funding.

Counsel for the UAW, Babette A. Ceccotti, Esq., at Cohen, Weiss
and Simon LLP, said in a court filing, "The City's road through
bankruptcy has been rocky and difficult for its employees and
retirees, who are to contribute significantly to the City's
revitalization from funds they otherwise expected would be their
retirement security and -- with the acceptance by Classes 10 and
11 -- potentially giving up significant rights to pursue full
payment of their pensions.  Uncertainties regarding the Outside
Funding should not persist through the Confirmation Hearing and
beyond.  The Court should require the State to provide
notification that the "initial funding conditions" have been
fulfilled.  In addition, assuming the Court finds that the City's
Plan has otherwise met the requirements of the Bankruptcy Code for
confirmation, the Court should deny the City the ability to
automatically impose greater cuts based upon an alleged failure of
the funding conditions in the future, and instead require that the
City return to Court in the event the City believes that any
alleged failure of the funding commitments has been triggered."

The Court earlier approved a stipulation extending the UAW's
deadline to file the objection to Aug. 1.

DETROIT, MI: Ambac & BlackRock Switch Plan Votes to "Yes"
---------------------------------------------------------
The City of Detroit, Ambac Assurance Corporation and BlackRock
Financial Management, Inc., on behalf of its managed funds and
accounts, sought and obtained bankruptcy court approval of a
stipulation providing for a change of Ambac's and BlackRock's
votes on the City's Plan of Adjustment of Debts.

Ambac and BlackRock submitted timely ballots rejecting the Plan
with respect to Class 7 Limited Tax General Obligation ("LTGO")
Bond Claims.

Prior to the July 11, 2014 voting deadline, the City reached a
settlement agreement with Ambac and BlackRock regarding the
treatment of Class 7 claims, and Ambac delivered to counsel for
the City a superseding ballot changing its Class 7 vote to a "yes"
vote, which was to be held in escrow pending the final
documentation of the settlement.

As a result of the Parties' agreement regarding the treatment of
Class 7 claims and the completion of the final documentation of
the settlement, Ambac and BlackRock believe that the Plan should
be approved with respect to the LTGO Bond Claims, and each of
Ambac and BlackRock desires to change its votes rejecting the Plan
to a vote accepting the Plan.

Accordingly, the Parties have agreed, pursuant to Federal Rule
of Bankruptcy Procedure 3018(a), that Ambac and BlackRock shall be
permitted to submit new ballots to the City's balloting agent,
Kurtzman Carson Consultants, and that such new ballots shall (a)
accept the Plan, (b) be deemed timely and (c) supersede any
previous Class 7 ballots submitted by Ambac and BlackRock.

DETROIT, MI: Water Dept. OKs Plan to Refinance $5-Bil. Debt
-----------------------------------------------------------
Robert Snell and David Shepardson, writing for The Detroit News,
reported that the city's water department has approved a plan to
refinance almost $5.2 billion in debt, a move that could free up
cash for Detroit's restructuring and potentially speed an exit
from bankruptcy court.  According to the report, the plan,
approved by Detroit Water and Sewerage commissioners, would lower
the utility's interest rate and slash costs.  The plan involves
offering secured water bondholders a chance to have the city buy
back the bonds, and by doing so, the city could issue new bonds
and refinance up to $5.183 billion of debt, the report related.

EASTMAN KODAK: Ricoh Pays $43 Million to Settle Licensing Dispute
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Sara Randazzo, writing for The Wall Street Journal, reported that
the long-running dispute between Eastman Kodak Co. and Ricoh Co.
over the terms of a patent licensing deal came to a close with the
announcement of a $43 million settlement that puts Ricoh on the
losing end of the dispute.  According to the report, the
settlement resolves several intersecting legal actions, including
a federal lawsuit initiated by Kodak in 2012 alleging Ricoh owed
royalties for Pentax digital cameras it sold using Kodak
technology.  The settlement also absolves a patent infringement
lawsuit Ricoh brought against Kodak as part of the iconic film
company's Chapter 11 case and a related bankruptcy claim, the
Journal said.

                        About Eastman Kodak

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

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

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

Attorneys at Sullivan & Cromwell LLP and Young Conaway Stargatt &
Taylor, LLP, serve as counsel to the Debtors.  FTI Consulting,
Inc., is the restructuring advisor.   Lazard Freres & Co. LLC, is
the investment banker.  Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC is the
claims agent.

The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors has tapped Milbank,
Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP, as its bankruptcy counsel.

Michael S. Stamer, Esq., David H. Botter, Esq., and Abid Qureshi,
Esq., at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP, represent the
Unofficial Second Lien Noteholders Committee.

The Retirees Committee has hired Haskell Slaughter Young &
Rediker, LLC, and Arent Fox, LLC as Co-Counsel; Zolfo Cooper,
LLC, as Bankruptcy Consultants and Financial Advisors; and the
Segal Company, as Actuarial Advisors.

Robert J. Stark, Esq., Andrew Dash, Esq., and Neal A. D'Amato,
Esq., at Brown Rudnick LLP, represent Greywolf Capital Partners
II; Greywolf Capital Overseas Master Fund; Richard Katz, Kenneth
S. Grossman; and Paul Martin.

Kodak completed the $527 million sale of digital-imaging
technology on Feb. 1, 2013.  Kodak intends to reorganize by
focusing on the commercial printing business.

At the end of April 2013, Kodak filed a reorganization plan
offering 85 percent of the stock to holders of the remaining
$375 million in second-lien notes. The other 15 percent is for
unsecured creditors with $2.7 billion in claims and retirees who
have a $635 million claim from the loss of retirement benefits.

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Allan Gropper confirmed the plan on August
20, 2013.  Kodak and its affiliated debtors officially emerged
from bankruptcy protection on Sept. 3, 2013.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Bankruptcy Court approved the change of name of Edgenet Inc.,

Holding Wind Down Corp.

In a separate order, the Court extended until July 31, 2014, the
Debtors time to assume or reject unexpired lease of nonresidential
real property (Waukesha Location).

                       About Edgenet Inc.

Edgenet, Inc., and Edgenet Holding Corp. are providers of cloud-

products and services with greater ease across multiple channels
and devices.  Edgenet has three business locations: Waukesha, WI,
Brentwood, TN, and its main office in Atlanta, GA.  The Company

Edgenet Inc. and Edgenet Holding filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy
protection in Delaware (Lead Case No. 14-10066) on Jan. 14, 2014.

Edgenet Inc. estimated assets of at least $10 million and
liabilities of $100 million to $500 million.

Raymond Howard Lemisch, Esq., at Klehr Harrison Harvey Branzburg
LLP, in Wilmington, Delaware, serves as counsel to the Debtors;
Glass Ratner Advisory & Capital Group LLC is the financial
advisor; JMP Securities, LLC, is the investment banker, and Phase
Eleven Consultants, LLC, is the claims and noticing agent.

The U.S. Trustee has been unable to appoint an official unsecured
creditors committee as no sufficient interest has been generated
from creditors.

Fred Marxer, Timothy Choate and Davis Carr, individuals and
holders of a segment of the promissory notes issued in 2004 that
have been referred to by Edgenet, Inc., et al., requested that the
Court issue an order appointing an official committee of Seller
Noteholders, or in the alternative, an official committee of
unsecured creditors, with members appointed from the Seller
Noteholders who agree to waive any continued security interest
arising from the Seller Notes.

Roberta A. DeAngelis, the U.S. Trustee for Region 3, appointed on
March 13, 2014, five noteholders to serve on the Official
Committee of Note Holders.  In May, Bankruptcy Judge Brendan L.
Shannon denied Edgenet Inc., et al.'s motion to disband the
Noteholders Committee.

The Noteholders Committee has retained Morris James LLP's Jeffrey
R. Waxman, Esq.; and Cooley LLP's Cathey Hershcopf, Esq., and
Jeffrey L. Cohen, Esq., as co-counsel to the Committee.


EDGENET INC: Committee Bid for Dismissal/Conversion Adjourned

The Bankruptcy Court approved a stipulation among Edgenet Inc., et
al., the Official Committee of Noteholders, and Liberty Partners
Lenders, L.L.C., providing that nothing restricts the rights of
any party-in-interest other than the Official Committee of
Noteholders from moving to convert or dismiss the Debtors' cases.

deadline.

styled Edgenet, Inc., et al., v. Ernest Han-Ping Wu, Owners
Representative.

On June 12, the Committee filed a motion to convert, the hearing
on the matter is scheduled for July 10, and deadline to object is

EDRA D. BLIXSETH: Dist. Court Affirms Ruling Against WCP
--------------------------------------------------------
Western Capital Partners, LLC, appeals the judgment entered
against it by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Montana1 in favor of Richard J. Samson, trustee for the Chapter 7
estate of Edra D. Blixseth.  The Trustee brings this action to set
aside Edra's personal guaranty in June 2007 for a $13,065,000 loan
provided by WCP to entities owned by Edra's son, Matthew Crocker,
as a constructively fraudulent transfer under 11 U.S.C. Sec.
548(a).  The Trustee contends the guaranty was constructively
fraudulent because Edra: (1) was insolvent on a balance sheet
basis; (2) was unable to pay her bills as they came due; and (3)
lacked adequate capital for the business in which she was engaged.
Bankruptcy Judge Ralph B. Kirscher determined that the guaranty
was constructively fraudulent and entered judgment in favor of the
Trustee.  WCP appealed.

Chief District Judge Dana L. Christensen affirmed the Bankruptcy
Court's decision in her August 12, 2014 Order available at
http://is.gd/bdMu25from Leagle.com.

According to Judge Christensen, upon a de novo review of the
Bankruptcy Court's legal conclusions, the Court determines the
Bankruptcy Court's order awarding judgment against WCP in favor of
the Trustee was based on legal grounds within the contemplation of
the Bankruptcy Code and on factual findings that are not clearly
erroneous.

Judge Christensen said the Bankruptcy Court's order awarding
judgment in favor of the Trustee and against WCP for the sum of
$4,013,410.99 and the return of all property transferred on August
24, 2010, is affirmed.  The Bankruptcy Court's judgment for the
award of $356,609.69 on the claim of usury is affirmed.  The
Bankruptcy Court's judgment is affirmed in all other respects.

ELBIT IMAGING: Provides Update on Annual Meeting Agenda
-------------------------------------------------------
Elbit Imaging Ltd. announced additional updates regarding two
proposals on the agenda of its annual general meeting of
shareholders scheduled to be held on Aug. 14, 2014.

Proposal No. 4 - Compensation Policy for Officers and Directors

With respect to the Company's proposed Compensation Policy for
Directors and Officers, the Company has undertaken to Entropy
Financial Research Ltd., an Israeli shareholder advisory firm, as
follows:

Performance-based Bonus: Should a performance-based bonus be
awarded to one of the Company's office holders, the Company will
disclose in its subsequent annual report the degree to which that
office holder satisfied each applicable performance target.

Proposal No. 6 - Consultancy Agreement with our Director, Mr. Boaz
Lifschitz

With respect to the Company's proposed Consultancy Agreement with
the Company's Director, Mr. Boaz Lifschitz, the Company has
undertaken to Entropy Financial Research Ltd., an Israeli
shareholder advisory firm, that such agreement be limited to a
one-year term, and has clarified that the proposed arrangement is
made due to the recent developments in the Company's business, the
recent changes in the Company's management and in light of the
Company's specific need for a bio-medical and medical technologies
professional who is familiar with the Company's structure and
business.

                     About Elbit Imaging Ltd.

Tel-Aviv, Israel-based Elbit Imaging Ltd. (TASE, NASDAQ: EMITF)
hold investments in real estate and medical companies.  The
Company, through its subsidiaries, also develops shopping and
entertainment centers in Central Europe and invests in and manages
hotels.

Since February 2013, Elbit has intensively endeavored to come to
an arrangement with its creditors.  Elbit has said it has been
hanging by a thread for more than five months.  It has encountered
cash flow difficulties and this burdens its day to day activities,
and it certainly cannot make the necessary investments to improve
its assets.  In light of the arrangement proceedings, and
according to the demands of most of the bondholders, as well as an
agreement that was signed on March 19, 2013, between Elbit and the
Trustees of six out of eight series of bonds, Elbit is prohibited,
inter alia, from paying off its debts to the financial creditors -
- and as a result a petition to liquidate Elbit was filed, and
Bank Hapoalim has declared its debts immediately payable,
threatening to realize pledges that were given to the Bank on
material assets of the Company -- and Elbit undertook not to sell
material assets of the Company and not to perform any transaction
that is not during its ordinary course of business without giving
an advance notice to the trustees.

Accountant Rony Elroy has been appointed as expert for examining
the debt arrangement in the Company.

In July 2013, Elbit Imaging's controlling shareholders, Europe-
Israel MMS Ltd. and Mr. Mordechay Zisser, notified the Company
that the Tel Aviv District Court has appointed Adv. Giroa Erdinast
as a receiver with regards to the ordinary shares of the Company
held by Europe Israel securing Europe Israel's obligations under
its loan agreement with Bank Hapoalim B.M.  The judgment stated
that the Receiver is not authorized to sell the Company's shares
at this stage.  Following a request of Europe-Israel, the Court
also delayed any action to be taken with regards to the sale of
those shares for a period of 60 days.  Europe Israel and
Mr. Zisser have also notified the Company that they utterly reject
the Bank's claims and intend to appeal the Court's ruling.

Elbit Imaging reported a loss of NIS1.56 billion on
NIS360.59 million of total revenues for the year ended Dec. 31,
2013, as compared with a loss of NIS483.98 million on NIS418.48
million of total revenues in 2012.  The Company's balance sheet at
Dec. 31, 2013, showed NIS4.56 billion in total assets, NIS4.97
billion in total liabilities and a NIS408.63 million shareholders'
deficit.

Brightman Almagor Zohar & Co., a member firm of Deloitte Touche
Tohmatsu, in Tel-Aviv, Israel, issued a "going concern"
qualification on the consolidated financial statements for the
year ended Dec. 31, 2013.

FALCON STEEL: Has Access to Cash Collateral Until Aug. 31
---------------------------------------------------------
The Bankruptcy Court authorized Falcon Steel Company's interim use
of cash collateral until Aug. 31, 2014.  A hearing on the matter
was held July 28, 2014.

A copy of the approved budget is available for free at
http://bankrupt.com/misc/FAlconSteel_CC-budget.pdf

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Aug. 4, 2014,
the Debtor an order extending the termination date of the interim
order for use of cash collateral in its case.  The Debtor filed
its chapter 11 petition on June 29, 2014.  On July 2, the Court
entered an interim order for use of cash collateral and providing
partial adequate protection.

The TCR reported on July 10, 2014, approximately $16 million is
currently outstanding under the Texas Capital loan documents.
Texas Capital holds valid and perfected claims secured by the
Debtors' right, title, present and future interest in the
collateral.

Texas Capital told the Court that it has not consented to the use
of its cash collateral; accordingly, the Debtors must prove that
Texas Capital is adequately protected and that expenses reflected
in the Budget are "necessary to avoid immediate and irreparable
harm to the estate" in order to use such cash collateral on an
interim basis.  Texas Capital said it has serious reservations and
concerns about the Debtors' use of its cash collateral, pointing
out that the Debtors have failed to provide Texas Capital with
pertinent information, leaving Texas Capital to conclude that the
Debtors' cash flow projection does not reflect realistic revenues
and expenses, and that the Debtors will not be able to provide
adequate protection for the use of Texas Capital's Collateral and
Cash Collateral.

                    About Falcon Steel Company

Falcon Steel Company and New Falcon Steel, LLC, sought Chapter 11
protection in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District
of Texas, Fort Worth Division (Case Nos. 14-42585 and 14-42586) on
June 29, 2014.  Falcon Steel claims to be the only American-owned
company that builds steel lattice towers for high electrical
transmission lines.

The Debtors are seeking joint administration of their Chapter 11
cases (Lead Case No. 14-42585).

Falcon Steel was formed in 1963 and has operated continuously
since that time as a manufacturer engaged in fabricating and
galvanizing structural steel for customers in the United States.
New Falcon, a subsidiary, suspended operations in June 2013 and is
being held for sale.

FIRED UP: Aug. 25 Hearing on Bid for Exclusivity Extensions
-----------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas will
convene a hearing on Aug. 25, 2014, at 1:30 p.m., to consider
Fired Up Inc.'s requests for extension in its exclusive period.

The Debtor requested that the Court extend its exclusive period to
file a chapter 11 plan until Sept. 1, and solicit aceptances for
that plan until Oct. 31.

                       About Fired Up, Inc.

Fired Up, Inc., the Austin, Texas-based owner and operator of the
Johnny Carino's Italian restaurant chain, sought Chapter 11
bankruptcy protection (Bankr. W.D. Tex. Case No. 14-10447) on
March 27, 2014, in Austin.  The Debtor is represented by attorneys
at Barron & Newburger, P.C., in Austin.  It estimated assets and
debt of $10 million to $50 million.

As of the bankruptcy filing, Fired Up had 2,900 employees and
owned and operated 46 company-owned stores known as Johnny
Carino's Italian in seven states (Texas, Arkansas, Colorado,
Louisiana, Idaho, Kansas and Missouri) and 61 franchised or
licensed locations in 17 states and four other countries (Bahrain,
Dubai, Egypt and Kuwait).

The company began its own "out of court" reorganization in the
last quarter of 2013 by closing 20 unprofitable restaurants.  The
company later opted to seek bankruptcy protection to tie up the
"loose ends" of its self-imposed "reorganization" that did not
appear capable of being tied up without litigation.  In
particular, the provisions of the Bankruptcy Code with respect to
the rejection of burdensome leases and the ability to propose and
pay out its debts pursuant to a Plan without piecemeal prosecution
by random uncooperative creditors undermining same were
particularly attractive.

For the fiscal year ending June 27, 2012, the company reported
total revenues of $125.7 million, net income of $614,000, and
guest counts of 8.6 million.  For the fiscal year ending June 26,
2013, the company reported total revenues of $120.8 million, a net
loss of $5.9 million, and guest counts totaling 8.5 million.

The Debtor disclosed $10,360,877 in assets and $36,139,375 in
liabilities.

Creed Ford III is the majority shareholder and has served as
president and CEO since 2008.   Mr. Ford and Norman J. Abdallah
formed Fired Up in 1997 for the purpose of acquiring the then six-
unit Johnny Carino's Italian Kitchen chain from Brinker
International, Inc.

The U.S. Trustee appointed a seven-member Official Committee of
Unsecured Creditors.  The Committee tapped Pachulski Stang Ziehl &
Jones LLP as its counsel, and FTI Consulting, Inc. as its
financial advisor.

FLINTKOTE COMPANY: District Court Affirms Plan Confirmation Order
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Leonard P. Stark of the United States District Court for the
District of Delaware affirmed a bankruptcy court's order
confirming the plan of reorganization for The Flintkote Company
and disallowing Genstar Corporation's proof of claim for expenses
incurred in investigating the Comprehensive Environmental
Response, Compensation, and Liability Act.

Judge Stark agreed with the Bankruptcy Court that exposed-but-
asymptomatic individuals have potential "future demands" and
Congress did not make the terms "claim" and "demand" mutually
exclusive, as Genstar suggests.  Furthermore, Judge Stark ruled
that Genstar's interpretation "does not provide protection for
those people who are exposed [to asbestos] but asymptomatic."

The case is IN RE: THE FLINTKOTE COMPANY, et al., relating to
IMPERIAL TOBACCO CANADA LIMITED, and CERTAIN WHOLLY OWNED
SUBSIDIARIES, INCLUDING GENSTAR CORPORATION, Appellants, v. THE
FLINTKOTE COMPANY, FLINTKOTE MINES LIMITED, THE OFFICIAL COMMITTEE

his capacity as FUTURE CLAIMANTS REPRESENTATIVE, Appellees, CASE
NO. 04-11300-JKF, CIV. NO. 13-227-LPS (D. Del.).  A full-text copy

                         About FreeSeas Inc.

Headquartered in Athens, Greece, FreeSeas Inc., formerly known as
Adventure Holdings S.A., was incorporated in the Marshall Islands
on April 23, 2004, for the purpose of being the ultimate holding
company of ship-owning companies.  The management of FreeSeas'
vessels is performed by Free Bulkers S.A., a Marshall Islands
company that is controlled by Ion G. Varouxakis, the Company's
Chairman, President and CEO, and one of the Company's principal
shareholders.

The Company's fleet consists of six Handysize vessels and one
Handymax vessel that carry a variety of drybulk commodities,
including iron ore, grain and coal, which are referred to as
"major bulks," as well as bauxite, phosphate, fertilizers, steel
products, cement, sugar and rice, or "minor bulks."  As of
Oct. 12, 2012, the aggregate dwt of the Company's operational
fleet is approximately 197,200 dwt and the average age of its
fleet is 15 years.

FreeSeas Inc. reported a net loss of $48.70 million in 2013, a net
loss of $30.88 million in 2012 and a net loss of $88.19 million in

$79.78 million in total assets, $77.41 million in total
liabilities, all current, and $2.37 million in total shareholders'
equity.

RBSM LLP, in New York, issued a "going concern" qualification on
the consolidated financial statements for the year ended Dec. 31,
2013.  The independent auditors noted that the Company has
incurred recurring operating losses and has a working capital
deficiency.  In addition, the Company has failed to meet scheduled
payment obligations under its loan facilities and has not complied
with certain covenants included in its loan agreements.
Furthermore, the vast majority of the Company's assets are
considered to be highly illiquid and if the Company were forced to
liquidate, the amount realized by the Company could be
substantially lower that the carrying value of these assets.
These conditions among others raise substantial doubt about the
Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

GULFPORT ENERGY: S&P Retains 'B-' Rating on 7.75% Unsecured Notes
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it revised its
recovery rating on Gulfport Energy Corp.'s 7.75% senior unsecured
notes to '4', indicating S&P's expectation of average (30% to 50%)
recovery in the event of a payment default, from '3', following
Gulfport's announcement that it has launched a $250 million add-on
to the notes.  This brings the total issue amount to $550 million.
Net proceeds from the add-on will be used primarily to repay
existing borrowings on the company's credit facility and to fund
capital spending.  S&P's 'B-' issue-level rating on the notes
remains unchanged.

S&P's 'B-' corporate credit rating and positive outlook on
Gulfport Energy Corp. are unchanged.

The ratings on Gulfport continue to reflect its small reserve
base, geographic concentration in the Utica shale, and aggressive
capital spending plan that could weaken its liquidity.  The
ratings also reflect the volatility and capital-intensive nature
of the oil and gas exploration and production industry.  These
weaknesses are partially buffered by a liquids-rich reserve base
with significant growth potential in the Utica shale.  S&P
characterizes Gulfport's business risk as "vulnerable," its
financial risk as "significant," and its liquidity as "adequate."

HAAS ENVIRONMENTAL: Exclusivity Extension Bid, Plan Up in The Air
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Haas Environmental, Inc., locked horns with the official committee
of unsecured creditors over the Debtor's request for a third
extension of the exclusive period during which it may solicit
acceptance of its bankruptcy-exit plan.

The Debtor filed a plan of reorganization and disclosure statement
by the May 27, 2014 deadline set by the Court in a prior
exclusivity extension order.  The Debtor is seeking a further
extension of the exclusive solicitation peiod for 60 days --
through and including September 26, 2014 -- without prejudice to
its right to seek further extensions, if necessary.  Although a
Plan is in place, the Debtor believes it may need additional time
to solicit and obtain acceptances of its Plan.

The Debtor said it has made good faith progress toward a
successful reorganization, including negotiating a settlement with
certain of its secured creditors related to their treatment under
the Plan and believes that the Plan will be confirmed.  It said an
extension of the Solicitation Period will not prejudice any party
in interest.

One feature of the Plan is a so-called new value contribution from
sole shareholder Eugene Haas using his personal funds in exchange
for retaining his equity interest in the Debtor.  Those funds will
be utilized to pay for certain disbursements under the Plan.  Upon
the Plan effective date, Mr. Haas will be deemed appointed as the
plan administrator and will be responsible for making
distributions from the play payment fund under the Plan.
Management of the Debtor's operations after the effective date
will continue to be run by Mr. Haas as its president.

Under the Plan, the unsecured creditor claims, estimated to be
$3.8 million, will be paid after higher priority claims are
satisfied.  Holders of unsecured creditor claims are estimated to
recoup 9% to 11% of the Allowed amount.

In its objection to the extension request, the Committee said the
Solicitation Motion, upon a first reading, appears to be a fairly
benign request to extend the Solicitation Period.  But all is not
what it seems, the Committee said, pointing out that the
Solicitation Motion fails to disclose that (i) the Plan is not
supported by the Committee; (ii) there were no negotiations
between the Debtor, the Debtor's sole equity holder, and the
Committee over the terms of the Plan prior to filing; (iii) the
proposed treatment of general unsecured creditors in the Plan is
not supported by the Committee; and (iv) the Plan is patently
unconfirmable as it violates the absolute priority rule and
provides for non-consensual third party releases, among other
violations. Granting the Debtor a further extension of the
Solicitation Period is detrimental to the interests of the
Debtor's general unsecured creditors, the panel said.

The Committee also noted that the Chapter 11 Case has been pending
for close to a year, during which the Committee has worked
cooperatively with the Debtor on various issues. Unfortunately, at
the most critical stage of the case -- the negotiation and filing
of a plan of reorganization -- the Debtor and its sole equity
holder determined to file a plan without any discussions or
negotiations with the Committee over the treatment of general
unsecured creditors and other plan terms.  The Committee said the
Court should deny the Debtor's Solicitation Motion.

The Debtors shot back, telling the Court that the Debtor and the
Committee have known that if any substantial amount of funds would
be made available to unsecured creditors, those funds would have
to be provided by Mr. Haas, or (to a much lesser extent) Mr.
Haas's relatives and insiders.  For that reason, Mr. Haas has
reached out to the Committee on numerous occasions beginning in
April or early May in attempts to discuss the case and terms of a
potential settlement that could be included in the plan.  Mr. Haas
never received a meaningful response from the Committee, and
unfortunately, no substantive settlement discussions occurred.

The Debtor also noted that shortly after the plan was filed Mr.
Haas's attorney and the Committee's attorney spoke, and agreed
that the Committee would submit a list of documents for Mr. Haas
to provide to the Committee in advance of parties discussing a
settlement. In nearly two weeks since that conversation, the
Committee has yet to provide a document request to Mr. Haas.

While the Debtor would have preferred to have had settlement
discussions with the Committee prior to filing the plan, the
Committee has not demonstrated any willingness to discuss a
settlement.  Therefore, the Debtor -- facing a deadline to file
the plan or have the case converted to Chapter 7 -- filed the plan
incorporating a substantial contribution from Mr. Haas on
behalf of himself and other insiders.

The Debtor said it and Mr. Haas are frustrated with the
Committee's lack of responsiveness in discussing the plan and a
potential settlement, and the Debtor believes it is inappropriate
for the Committee to use its dilatory tactics as a basis to deny
the Motion.  Those issues, however, should not side track the
Court from considering the Motion, which should be granted, the
Debtor said.

Terms of the Plan as well as objections lodged against the
explanatory disclosure statement were reported in the Troubled
Company Reporter on Aug. 6, 2014.  The Committee and Ford Motor
Credit Company LLC filed objections to the disclosure statement.
A copy of the Disclosure Statement is available for free at:

                       http://is.gd/Y5CJlo

A hearing to consider the extension request was set for June 17,
2014, at 10:00 a.m.  A hearing to consider the approval of the
Disclosure Statement was set for July 10, 2014, at 2:00 p.m.

No updates have been posted on the case docket yet as of press
time.

HDOS ENTERPRISES: Restaurant Chain Files Chapter 11 Plan
--------------------------------------------------------
Sherri Toub, substituting for Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy
columnist for Bloomberg News, reports that the employee-owned Hot
Dog on a Stick restaurant chain has filed a Chapter 11 plan and
explanatory disclosure materials that provides full payment to
holders of allowed secured claims totaling about $2.4 million,
general unsecured claims totaling about $1.9 million, and lease
rejection claims totaling about $1.7 million.  According to the
report, the unsecured claim, if any, of the employee stock
ownership plan, or ESOP, would be subordinated to secured claims,
general unsecured claims, and lease rejection claims.

                     About Hot Dog On A Stick

Cal.).  The case is assigned to Judge Neil W. Bason.

The Debtor's counsel is represented by Jerome Bennett Friedman,
Esq., Stephen F. Biegenzahn, Esq., and Michael D. Sobkowiak, Esq.,
at Friedman Law Group, P.C., in Los Angeles, California.  Rust

Jeffrey N. Pomerantz, Esq., at Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP,
in Los Angeles, California, as counsel.


HOPE SUSAN BARATT: NJ Dist. Judge Affirms Order Lifting Stay
------------------------------------------------------------
Hope Susan Baratt lost an appeal from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the District of New Jersey's order vacating the automatic stay
in her chapter 11 case as to real property at 880 Summit Avenue,
Jersey City, New Jersey 07306.

Baratt filed a voluntary petition for relief under Chapter 7 of
the U.S. Bankruptcy Code with the New Jersey Bankruptcy Court on
July 10, 2013.

On September 11, 2013, Baratt substituted attorneys and filed a
motion to convert her case to Chapter 13 from Chapter 7.  On
September 28, 2013, Hudson City Savings Bank filed a motion with
the Bankruptcy Court seeking relief from the Bankruptcy Court's
automatic stay provision so that it could foreclose on the
property located at 880 Summit Avenue.  On October 7, 2013, the
Bankruptcy Court granted Baratt's motion to convert the matter to
a Chapter 13 proceeding.

The Bankruptcy Court held a hearing on HCSB's motion for relief
from the automatic stay on October 22, 2013.  Baratt alleges that
she agreed to "pay adequate protection to Appellee" in the amount
of $4,779.00 per month.

On November 12, 2013, Baratt filed a Chapter 13 plan. Following
objections from the Standing Chapter 13 Trustee, it was determined
that Baratt's debt exceeded statutory limits, and she was advised
to convert to Chapter 11 or the case would be dismissed. On
December 13, 2013, Baratt filed a motion to convert her bankruptcy
to Chapter 11.  On January 6, 2014, the Bankruptcy Court granted
her motion and converted the bankruptcy to Chapter 11.

On February 11, 2014, HCSB's motion for relief from the automatic
stay was granted based on its representation that Baratt had no
equity in the property and that the property was not necessary for
Baratt's reorganization.  On February 20, 2014, the Bankruptcy
Court issued an amended order related to the real property at 880
Summit Avenue allowing HCSB to proceed in foreclosure proceedings.

This appeal followed.

District Judge Faith S. Hochberg affirmed the lower court ruling
in an Opinion and Order dated Aug. 11 available at
http://is.gd/G0fWSJfrom Leagle.com.

The case is, HOPE SUSAN BARATT, Appellant, v. HUDSON CITY SAVINGS
BANK, et al., Appellees, CIVIL CASE NO. 14-2933 (FSH)(D. N.J.).

hearing to consider motion to convert the Debtors' Chapter 11
cases to Chapter 7.

has insurance in force and that they are currently unable to

public constitutes cause under Section 1112 of the Bankruptcy
Code.

INTERMETRO COMMUNICATIONS: Sells 3 Million Series B Pref. Shares
----------------------------------------------------------------
Intermetro Communications, Inc., on Aug. 1, 2014, sold 3,000,000
shares of Series B Preferred Stock together with warrants to
purchase 3,000,000 shares of common stock at an exercise price of
$0.20 per share in exchange for a total purchase price of
$3,000,000.  The securities were sold to an accredited investor in
a private placement exempt from registration under Regulation D of
the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.  The Series B Preferred
stock may be converted into shares of common stock at a conversion
rate of 6.66 shares of common stock for each share of Series B
Preferred.

On Aug. 1, 2014, the Company increased the number of authorized
shares of Series B Preferred Stock to 4,250,000 shares, of which,
after the sale of shares, a total of 3,801,000 shares are
outstanding.

InterMetro Communications, Inc., paid $2,219,742 to terminate its
credit facility that was formerly held by Transportation Alliance
Bank, Inc.  The Company did not incur termination penalties in
connection with that loan pay-off.

                          About InterMetro

Simi Valley, Calif.-based InterMetro Communications, Inc.,
-- http://www.intermetro.net/-- is a Nevada corporation which
through its wholly owned subsidiary, InterMetro Communications,
Inc. (Delaware), is engaged in the business of providing voice
over Internet Protocol ("VoIP") communications services.

InterMetro Communications reported a net loss of $2.45 million on
$11.57 million of net revenues for the year ended Dec. 31, 2013,
as compared with net income of $699,000 on $20.06 million of net
revenues in 2012.

Gumbiner Savett Inc., in Santa Monica, California, issued a "going
cocern" qualification on the consolidated financial statements for
the year ended Dec. 31, 2013.  The independent auditors noted that
the Company incurred net losses in previous years, and as of
Dec. 31, 2013, the Company had a working capital deficit of
approximately $12,082,000 and a total stockholders' deficit of
approximately $12,426,000.  The Company anticipates that it will
not have sufficient cash flow to fund its operations in the near
term and through fiscal 2014 without the completion of additional
financing.  These factors, among other things, raise substantial
doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern


INTERNATIONAL FOREIGN: Wants Plan Filing Extended to Nov. 10
------------------------------------------------------------
International Foreign Exchange Concepts Holdings, Inc., et al.,
ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New
York to extend by 90 days the exclusive period to (a) file a
Chapter 11 plan for the Debtors through and including Nov. 10,
2014, and (b) extend the exclusive period to solicit acceptances
of a Chapter 11 plan for the Debtors through and including
Jan. 12, 2015.

A hearing on the requested extension is set for Sept. 4, 2014, at
9:45 a.m. (EDT).  The deadline for filing of objections to the
requested extension is Aug. 28, 2014 at 4:00 p.m. (EDT).

The size and complexity of the Debtors' pre-petition business made
its eventual wind-down and liquidation more complex than its
current size would suggest.  Although the related funds were
largely shut down prior to the Petition Date and the investor
funds have been returned to investors, the funds and other
regulated entities needed to be, and in some respects still need
to be, formally resolved.  Although there were relatively few
tasks that needed to be accomplished prior to proposing -- and
hopefully confirming -- a liquidating plan, those tasks have the
potential to be complicated, involve several international
entities and regulatory schemes, and require some time to work
through.

The Debtors hope to file a proposed Chapter 11 Liquidating Plan
with respect to plan debtors IFEC LP and FXC in the near future.
The Plan is fully drafted and has been considered by the major
constituencies in these cases.  Although the Plan is substantially
complete, the Debtors are not yet prepared to file and formally
pursue confirmation of the Plan.

KID BRANDS: Consumer Ombudsman Appointed by U.S. Trustee
--------------------------------------------------------
BankruptcyData reported that the U.S. Bankruptcy Court approved
the motion of the U.S. Trustee assigned to the Kid Brands' case
seeking the appointment of a consumer privacy ombudsman and named
Bonnie Glantz Fatell, Esq., for the role.  The U.S. Trustee
previously objected to the proposed sale of one of Kid Brands'
assets, saying the sale of the Kids Line/CoCaLo and Sassy appear
to include the sale of consumers' personally identifiable
information.  The Debtors have a published privacy policy that
expressly prohibits such sale, and neither motion addresses the
requirement in the Bankruptcy Code that a Consumer privacy
ombudsman be appointed, the U.S. Trustee said, according to BData.

LAKESIDE 370: Seeks to Enforce Stay Against Revenue Collector
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Lakeside 370 Levee District sought bankruptcy protection under
Chapter 9 of the Bankruptcy Code and immediately filed a motion to
enforce the automatic stay against the Collector of Revenue for
St. Charles County, Missouri, so that it can continue collecting
on levee assessments as it works on its bankruptcy-exit plan.

The Collector of Revenue, which has the duty to collect the
assessments of the levee district, has scheduled a tax sale for
Aug. 25, 2014 at which time the Collector intends to sell certain
real estate in the district of St. Charles County that is
delinquent in the payment of district assessments and general real
estate tax obligations.  The last day that real estate taxes can
be paid to avoid the sale is Aug. 22, 2014.

Robert A. Breidenbach, Esq., at Goldstein & Pressman, P.C.,
counsel to the Lakeside 370 Levee District, notes that any such
sale is an attempt to enforce a lien arising from assessments owed
to the Debtor and is prohibited by the express language of the
automatic stay provisions of 11 U.S.C. Sec. 922(a)(2).

Lakeside 370 informs the bankruptcy court that several landowners
of property within the District have attempted to tender payment
of the amount necessary to cure the delinquency for real estate
taxes due and owing on their respective properties, but the
Collector has refused to accept said tender or to apply the
payments to delinquent real estate taxes as directed by the
taxpayer unless payment in full of delinquent district assessments
is made at the same time.

As to all delinquent district assessments, those amounts
constitute property of the Debtor which will be addressed in
Debtor's Chapter 9 Plan of Adjustment.  The Debtor says it has
negotiated with the holder of the majority of its outstanding
bonds and has reached an understanding as to the principal terms
of a Plan of Adjustment which shall be filed at the earliest
practicable date.  Accordingly, the Debtor submits that the
Collector should be directed to neither collect nor to enforce any
lien with respect to any unpaid district assessments until and
unless directed to do so upon the effective date of a confirmed
Plan of Adjustment.

                 About Lakeside 370 Levee District

In May 2006, the Circuit Court of St. Charles County entered an
order creating Lakeside 370 Levee District as a levee district
formed by and according to law.  The district was formed for the
purpose of protecting land within the boundaries of the levee
district, which consists of 1,270 acres of land on the north and
south sides of Interstate Highway 370 in St. Charles County, in
the State of Missouri.  Lakeside 370 has the right, power, duty,
and authority under Chapter 245 R.S.Mo. to levy assessments upon
the land within the District.

Lakeside 370 sought bankruptcy protection under Chapter 9 of the
Bankruptcy Code on Aug. 1, 2014 (Bankr. E.D. Mo. Case No. 14-
46094) in St. Louis, Missouri.

The Debtor has tapped attorneys at Goldstein and Pressman, P.C.,
as counsel.

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

Ryan D. Hodges, the president, signed the bankruptcy petition.


LIME ENERGY: Awarded $180 Million of New Utility Program
--------------------------------------------------------
Lime Energy said it has been awarded approximately $180 million of
new utility program business, which awards reflect modified and
new agreements with four separate utilities that provide, in
different cases, for contract extensions, modifications to program
budgets, and territory expansions, including, in one case, the
addition of a program budget to facilitate LED measure adoption.

All awards are for Lime's award winning small business energy
efficiency programs.  All are under signed contracts with the
respective utilities.

The recognition of the potential revenue of these awards would
occur over five years and depend on the receipt of certain
regulatory approvals and Lime's ability to sell sufficient program
services.

"These significant contract awards extend Lime Energy's leadership
position in providing small business solutions to US utilities.
Our ability to cost effectively bring energy efficiency at scale
to this customer segment while driving high customer satisfaction
is proving to be of tremendous value to the utility of the
future," said Adam Procell, president and CEO of Lime Energy.

"The market for delivering energy efficiency resources is
presenting Lime with great opportunity for growth and these awards
are evidence of Lime's continued ability to secure new utility
contracts while expanding with existing clients," Procell added.

                      Subscription Agreements

As of Aug. 4, 2014, Lime Energy Co. entered into a subscription
agreement with a group of investors including Mr. Richard Kiphart,
the Company's Chairman and largest individual stockholder.
Pursuant to the terms of the Subscription Agreement, the Holders
will lend the Company $1,000,000 under Subordinated Secured
Convertible Pay-In-Kind Notes.  The Notes have a term of ten years
and will accrue interest at the rate of 12-1/2% per year, payable
semi-annually at the Company's election in cash or additional
Notes.  The Company intends to use the proceeds from the issuance
of the Notes for general corporate purposes.

LLS AMERICA: David Perry Fails to Dismiss Trustee's Suit
--------------------------------------------------------
In the case, BRUCE P. KRIEGMAN, solely in his capacity as court-
appointed Chapter 11 Trustee for LLS America, LLC, Plaintiff, v.
LAZY M, LLC, Defendant, CASE NO. 12-CV-668-RMP (E.D. Wash.),
District Judge Rosanna Malouf Peterson denied individual defendant
David Perry's motion to dismiss the case.

The Court said the Defendant's motion to dismiss is untimely.  The
Bankruptcy Court's Amended Scheduling Order Re Non-Common Issues
set July 25, 2013, as the deadline for dispositive motions.
"Dispositive motions" include motions requesting dismissal or
summary judgment.  The Defendant filed his motion to dismiss on
June 2, 2014, months after the deadline for dispositive motions
had passed.

Even if the motion were timely, the Court said the Defendant has
not raised grounds sufficient to justify dismissal of the case.

The Court also denied, as moot, the Plaintiff's motion to strike
the Defendant's filings, including a reply in support of his
motion to dismiss, and arguments and facts in additional filings.

LOUDOUN HEIGHTS: Files Fourth Amended Chapter 11 Plan
-----------------------------------------------------
Loudoun Heights, LLC, filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Eastern district of Virginia its fourth amended Chapter 11 Plan
which contemplates the liquidation of all of the Debtor's assets,
including tangible assets, general intangible assets, and real
property.  In accordance with the Plan, the Debtor intends to use
the proceeds from the sales to pay toward the Allowed Claims of
all Classes of Secured and Unsecured Creditors.

A copy of the Plan is available for free at:

      http://bankrupt.com/misc/LOUDOUNHEIGHTS_208_4plan.pdf

The Debtor's Plan provides that M&T Bank has been granted
immediate relief from stay, and that this creditor will foreclose
on the secured 166-Acre Property no earlier than Oct. 22, 2014.
Additionally, this Claim will receive 80% of the Debtor's share of
proceeds generated by the sale of stream mitigation credits
relating to the 166-Acre Property.

If the amounts received by this creditor from the foreclosure sale
of the 166-Acre Propertyon which this Creditor holds a lien,
combined with the revenue received by this creditor from 80% of
the stream mitigation credit sale proceeds, is insufficient to pay
this Creditor in full, then this Creditor will be treated as a
Class 6 General Unsecured Creditor, and will be paid out of any
proceeds or funds that remain in the Debtor?s bankruptcy case
following full payment of the claims of Class 1, Class 2, Class 3
and Class 5 creditors.

The Debtor is aware of these General Unsecured Claims:

      a. Walsh Colucci, Lubley, Emrich & Walsh -- $55,252 (Proof
         of Claim No. 2-1);

      b. Hirschler Fleischer -- $9,453 (Proof of Claim No. 5-1);

      c. Stantec -- $1,880; and

      d. Little Piney Run Estates, LLC -- $0.

Little Piney is an insider, and its $364,645 claim, will not be
paid under the Plan, and this creditor will have no right to vote
on acceptance or rejection of the Plan.  This class will be
Impaired.  The approximate total of general unsecured claims and
known deficiency claims based on claims filed or scheduled as of
the date of the filing of the Plan, excluding claims in this class
that are either disputed or for as yet undetermined amounts, is
$66,585, and the class is closed, as the claims bar date of April
15, 2014, has passed.  All claims in this class will be paid in
full.

The Debtor intends to commit all disposable income to payment of
General Unsecured Claims.

Class 6 consists of one creditor, M&T Bank.  This Class will be
impaired.  M&T Bank's claim is capped at $2,000,000.  Any unpaid
amounts that remain due and owing by the Debtor to M&T Bank
following the bank's foreclosure sale of the 166-Acre Property on
which the bank holds a lien, and the bank's receipt of 80% of the
Debtor's share of proceeds from the sale of stream mitigation
credits.  After paying off the claims of Class 1, Class 2,
Class 3, and Class 5 creditors, the Debtor will commit all
remaining funds and assets in its bankruptcy estate up to
$2,000,000 to payment of the Class 6 Unsecured creditor.

Objection

On Aug. 7, 2014, the County of Loudoun, Virginia, filed an
objection to the Debtor's Fourth Amended Plan.  The County objects
to confirmation because the County's claim is listed as priority
when its tax claim should have been listed as secured under 11
U.S.C. Section 506, 511 and VA. CODE Section 58.1-3340.  The
County's secured tax claim should be paid with interest at the
rate of 10% per year pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Section 506 and 511,
VA. CODE Section 58.1-3916 and LCCO Section 860.02 and 860.03.  A
copy of the objection is available for free at:

     http://bankrupt.com/misc/LOUDOUNHEIGHTS_214_planobj.pdf

The Debtor is the record owner of six real properties within the
County.  The County's real property taxes are deemed secured with
first priority over any other lien or encumbrance.  The County is
an ad valorem real property tax creditor of the Debtor for 2012-
2014 ad valorem real estate taxes.  The real estate taxes accrued
on Jan. 1 of each year and were payable in two installments in
June and Dec. 5.  Other real estate taxes on the 166-Acre Property
and the 313-Acre Parcel will accrue during the term of the Plan.

The County timely filed its proof of claim on March 28, 2014, but
inadvertently included the 2014 real estate taxes on the 166-Acre
Property and the 313-Acre Parcel even though this chapter 11
bankruptcy petition was filed in 2013.  The 2014 real estate
taxes, which accrued on Jan. 1, 2014, are post and not pre-
petition taxes and should have not be included within the proof of
claim.  On Aug. 7, 2014, the County amended its Claim No. 4 to
exclude the 2014 Real Estate Taxes, which are post-petition taxes.

The ad valorem Real Estate Taxes are secured and the County is
entitled to payment of penalty and interest on its secured tax
claim.

Confirmation Hearing

On July 22, 2014, the Hon. Brian F. Kenney of the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Eastern District of Virginia entered an order
approving the Debtor's fifth amended disclosure statement, and set
a hearing on the confirmation of the Debtor's Plan for
Sept. 9, 2014, at 1:30 p.m.  The deadline for objections to the
confirmation of the Plan is Aug. 26, 2014.  Ballots must also be
returned to the counsel for the Debtor by that date.  Counsel for
the Debtor must file a Summary of Ballots by Friday, September 5,
2014, by 5:00 p.m.

Reconsideration of Order Approving Settlement

On July 21, 2014, M&T Bank filed with the Court a response to
Little Piney Run LLC's motion for reconsideration of a June 27,
2014 court order that approved a settlement between the Debtor and
other parties to this proceeding.

According to M&T Bank, LPR failed to show that vacating the order
is appropriate pursuant to Rule 9023.  Both its assignments of
error are inappropriate grounds for reconsideration, as they fail
to account for the enactment of new law, the discovery of new
facts, or show a clear error of law.  Further, both arguments
could have been raised prior to the June 5 hearing, and were
inappropriately raised for the first time in the motion to
reconsider.

The Debtor's five independent parcels at 10942 Harpers Ferry Road,
Purcellville, Virginia, has been enrolled in a compensatory
mitigation program pursuant to, inter alia, the Clean Water Act,
whereby it is eligible to receive stream mitigation credits for
environmental preservation, enhancement and remediation performed
on the Property.  M&T Bank has a first priority deed of trust lien
against the Property.

M&T Bank says in its July 21 court filing that throughout the
bankruptcy proceedings, there has been considerable disagreement
over who is entitled to the Stream Credits and the proceeds from
their sale.  This controversy began when the Debtor filed a motion
to approve the sale of its stream credits and approval to allow
Loudoun Mitigation Bank, LLC, to Act as selling agent on Dec. 27,
2013.  M&T Bank filed an opposition, arguing, inter alia, that it
was entitled to the proceeds from the sale of the Stream Credits
by virtue of its first priority deed of trust lien against the
Property.  LPR followed suit and also opposed the Debtor's motion
to sell the Stream Credits.

M&T Bank and the Debtor reached terms of settlement, which LPR
contested.  A hearing was held on June 5, 2014, and the Court
ultimately approved the terms of settlement and entered the order.
One provision of the order instructs the Debtor to enter into a
contract with LMB that permits LMB to act as selling agent for the
Stream Credits.  In exchange for these services, LMB is granted a
commission from any sales.

LPR has filed the motion to reconsider, challenging the entry of
the order.  LPR argues that LMB terminated pursuant to the terms
of its operating agreement on Dec. 31, 2012.  LPR contends that
because the order requires LMB to act as selling agent for the
Stream Credits, the order must be vacated altogether.  LPR argues
that the order is irreparably flawed because it permits the Stream
Credits to be sold without LPR's consent.   M&T Bank claims that
neither of these theories warrants vacating the order.

disclosure statement, all classes of creditors will be paid in
full.  The proceeds from the sale of the Debtor's assets will be
sufficient to pay the Claims of all secured, priority unsecured
and general unsecured creditors, and court-approved professionals.

the sale of all assets.

Law360 reported that a Delaware bankruptcy judge agreed to approve
vision care company MacKeyser Holdings LLC's plan to auction off
the assets of many of its physician practices to help repay
creditors owed nearly $60 million after overruling objections some
lenders had regarding the perfection of one potential credit
bidder's liens.  According to the report, at a hearing in
Wilmington, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Christopher S. Sontchi said he
would likely approve a proposed order that attorneys for the
debtor and other parties plan to submit under certification of
counsel once they hammer out some minor disputes still pending
about the auction plan.

                         Bankruptcy Warning

The Company stated in its 2013 Annual Report, "The agreements
governing our senior secured credit facility and other senior
indebtedness contain restrictions and limitations that could
significantly affect our ability to operate our business, as well
as significantly affect our liquidity, and therefore could
adversely affect our results of operations.  Covenants governing
our senior secured credit facility and certain of our debt
securities restrict, among other things, our ability to:

   * pay dividends or distributions, repurchase or issue equity,
     prepay certain debt or make certain investments;

   * incur additional debt;

   * incur liens on assets;

   * sell assets or consolidate with another company or sell all
     or substantially all assets;

   * enter into transactions with affiliates;

   * allow certain subsidiaries to transfer assets; and

   * enter into sale and lease-back transactions.

Our ability to comply with these provisions may be affected by
events beyond our control.  The breach of any such covenants or
obligations not otherwise waived or cured could result in a
default under the applicable debt obligations and could trigger
acceleration of those obligations, which in turn could trigger
cross defaults under other agreements governing our long-term
indebtedness.  Any default under our senior secured credit
facility or the indentures governing our other debt could
adversely affect our growth, our financial condition, our results
of operations and our ability to make payments on our debt, and
could force us to seek protection under the bankruptcy laws."

                           *     *     *

As reported by the TCR on Nov. 14, 2011, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services raised its corporate credit rating on MGM Resorts
International to 'B-' from 'CCC+'.   In March 2012, S&P revised
the outlook to positive from stable.

"The revision of our rating outlook to positive reflects strong
performance in 2011 and our expectation that MGM will continue to
benefit from the improving performance trends on the Las Vegas
Strip," S&P said.

In March 2012, Moody's Investors Service affirmed its B2 corporate
family rating and probability of default rating.  The affirmation
of MGM's B2 Corporate Family Rating reflects Moody's view that
positive lodging trends in Las Vegas will continue through 2012
which will help improve MGM's leverage and coverage metrics,
albeit modestly. Additionally, the company's declaration of a $400
million dividend ($204 million to MGM) from its 51% owned Macau
joint venture due to be paid shortly will also improve the
company's liquidity profile. The ratings also consider MGM's
recent bank amendment that resulted in about 50% of its
$3.5 billion senior credit facility being extended one year from
2014 to 2015.

As reported by the TCR on Oct. 15, 2012, Fitch Ratings has
affirmed MGM Resorts International's (MGM) Issuer Default Rating
(IDR) at 'B-' and MGM Grand Paradise, S.A.'s (MGM Grand Paradise)
IDR at 'B+'.

NATURAL MOLECULAR: Order Allowing Committee to Sue CEO Stands
-------------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Marc Barreca denied the request of Natural
Molecular Testing Corporation for reconsideration or modification
of the Court's prior Order granting the motion of the Official
Committee of Unsecurd Creditors for authority to commence lawsuit
against Beau Fessenden, the Debtor's president and CEO.

The Order dated July 7 states that the Court considered the
Motion, the opposition briefs filed by the Committee, the reply
briefs submitted by Natural Molecular, supporting and opposing
declarations and the exhibits attached thereto, including the
supplemental materials filed, and the arguments of counsel.  The
Court finds and concludes that the Debtor has not established
grounds for the relief requested in the Motion based on the
Court's analysis as stated on the record.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter, counsel to the
Debtor, Arnold M. Willig, Esq., of Hacker & Willig Inc. PS, said
the Bankruptcy Court did not have a fair opportunity to assess the
merits of a lawsuit asserting a right to reimbursement of more
than $24 million.  Based on the Committee's motion, the Court
considered whether a single colorable claim existed against Mr.
Fessenden, and whether defense of such claim would impede Mr.
Fessenden's ability to contribute to Natural Molecular's
reorganization.

Natural Molecular argued that no colorable claim exists and has
always disputed the Committee's claim that its lawsuit would in no
way hinder the company's reorganization efforts.  Emboldened by
the Court's Order, the Committee has elected to pursue a lawsuit
against Mr. Fessenden of a much greater scope and magnitude than
previously described, which lawsuit will frustrate Natural
Molecular's attempts to reorganize successfully -- even more than
originally anticipated -- which seems to be exactly what some of
the Committee members wish to see.  The Committee's eagerness to
evade any reasonable constraints in its pursuit of Mr. Fessenden
is already plainly evident.

Natural Molecular said the relief granted to the Committee was
overbroad in light of the Court's findings and conclusions.
According to Mr. Willig, the Committee's lawsuit asserts a number
of expansive claims, the merits of which were never considered by
the Court in its Order permitting suit.  Further, the Committee,
Mr. Willig pointed out, did not address this overbreadth in its
response.  Upon reconsideration, the Debtor avers that the Court
should permit the Debtor an opportunity to reorganize successfully
before permitting the Committee to launch into protracted
litigation that will only impede the goals of a Chapter 11
bankruptcy.

"As a threshold matter, Natural Molecular would like to clarify
its position on what appeared to be the Court's primary concern
during the February 14th hearing: If, at any time during the
pendency of this bankruptcy case, it becomes clear that a
preferential or fraudulent transfer, or any "unlawful"
distribution, was made to any party -- including Beau Fessenden,
the Debtor's President and Chief Executive Officer -- Natural
Molecular absolutely will investigate and pursue such claims if at
all warranted pursuant to any and all applicable facts or law.
Better still, Natural Molecular will fully discuss and make every
effort to properly resolve such claim(s) short of time-consuming
and costly litigation. Mr. Fessenden is not opposed to returning
distributions, or preserving assets, if he is legally required to
do so. It is undeniable, however, that Mr. Fessenden, personally,
continues to fund Natural Molecular's ongoing business
operations," Natural Molecular said in court papers filed in
March.

"The Committee simply did not present evidence that Natural
Molecular abused its discretion in unjustifiably refusing
immediately to bring claims against Mr. Fessenden under the facts
and circumstances at issue. Therefore, Natural Molecular
respectfully requests that its Motion be granted, the current
Order vacated, the existing adversary proceeding dismissed, and
that any order authorizing suit be held in abeyance for a period
of 120 days."

The TCR also reported that the Committee objected to the Debtor's
motion for reconsideration.  Among others, the Committee said the
Debtor is unable to show manifest error by the Court or newly
discovered evidence that it was unable to present previously.

NAVISTAR INTERNATIONAL: Presented at Jefferies 2014 Conference
--------------------------------------------------------------
Navistar International Corporation announced that Walter G. Borst,
executive vice president and chief financial officer, discussed
business matters related to the Company during the Jefferies 2014
Industrial Conference in New York on Aug. 12.

                   About Navistar International

                          *     *     *

In the Oct. 9, 2013, edition of the TCR, Moody's Investors Service
affirmed the ratings of Navistar International Corporation,
including the B3 Corporate Family Rating (CFR).  The ratings
reflect Moody's expectation that Navistar's successful
incorporation of Cummins engines throughout its product line up
will enable the company to regain lost market share, and that
progress in addressing component failures in 2010 vintage-engines
will significantly reduce warranty expenses.

As reported by the TCR on Oct. 9, 2013, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services lowered its long-term corporate credit rating on
Illinois-based truckmaker Navistar International Corp. (NAV) to
'CCC+' from 'B-'.  "The rating downgrades reflect our increased
skepticism regarding NAV's prospects for achieving the market
shares it needs for a successful business turnaround," said credit
analyst Sol Samson.

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


NEWLEAD HOLDINGS: Says Ironridge Attempts to Force Fund Note
------------------------------------------------------------
NewLead Holdings Ltd. disclosed in a regulatory filing with the
U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that it received a request
from John Kirkland purporting to act on behalf of Ironridge Global
IV, Ltd., requesting wire instructions to enable Ironridge to
provide payment under a previously issued promissory note, despite
NewLead's repeatedly stated good faith belief that such
documentation with Ironridge is void and is the subject of a
pending arbitration.  NewLead has repeatedly confirmed its view
that even if the promissory note was not void, it is not currently
due and owing and is not a current obligation of Ironridge to pay.
NewLead views the Kirkland e-mail as an effort to provide forced
funding under the promissory note which could only occur if
Ironridge unilaterally waives a number of conditions under the
note.

According to NewLead, Ironridge previously, in early July 2014,
force funded another promissory note, which Ironridge was also not
obligated to pay at that time since it had to unilaterally waive
various provisions in the promissory note which made the note not
due and owing, so Ironridge had no obligation to pay the
promissory note, even assuming the validity of the documentation.
The forced funds were immediately returned in light of NewLead's
belief and the existence of the arbitration and, despite the
immediate return of the funds, "Ironridge used the opportunity to
convert the related preferred shares and abuse the irrevocable
instruction letter to force the transfer agent to issue NewLead
common shares to Ironridge".  Ironridge continues to convert on
the force funded promissory note, that may not be deemed paid and
for which funds have been returned.

Starting at the time of the arbitration in May 2014, NewLead has
repeatedly stated to Ironridge that until the resolution of the
arbitration, NewLead had no desire to receive, nor intends to
accept, any further funds from Ironridge, yet Ironridge continues
to waive a number of conditions on its promissory notes and
attempt to force fund in order to be able to convert preferred
shares, in order to immediately sell the underlying common shares.

In addition, NewLead has questioned the authority of those
purporting to act on behalf of Ironridge and requested additional
assurances that Ironridge is, in fact, complying with corporate
formalities and SEC filings.  Specifically, it has come to the
attention of NewLead that with respect to Ironridge Global
Partners LLC, the sole shareholder of Ironridge, four of the
principals of such sole shareholder, John Kirkland, Brendan
O'Neil, Richard Kreger and Keith Coulston, have now removed
references of themselves from the Ironridge Global Partners
website and based on changes in social media appear to have ended
their affiliation with Ironridge Global Partners.  NewLead said
despite requests for confirmation, Ironridge has not provided
satisfactory proof to NewLead that any of the principals of the
sole shareholder are authorized to act on behalf of Ironridge.  In
this respect, another individual, David Sims, who is believed to
be a director of Ironridge, is now also included on the various
correspondence despite NewLead never having had any discussions
with David Sims.

                    About NewLead Holdings Ltd.

Based in Athina, Greece, NewLead Holdings Ltd. --
http://www.newleadholdings.com/-- is an international, vertically
integrated shipping company that owns and manages product tankers
and dry bulk vessels.  NewLead currently controls 22 vessels,
including six double-hull product tankers and 16 dry bulk vessels
of which two are newbuildings.  NewLead's common shares are traded
under the symbol "NEWL" on the NASDAQ Global Select Market.

NewLead Holdings reported a net loss of $158.22 million on $7.34
million of operating revenues for the year ended Dec. 31, 2013, as
compared with a net loss of $403.92 million on $8.92 million of
operating revenues in 2012.  The Company's balance sheet at
Dec. 31, 2013, showed $151.33 million in total assets, $292.68
million in total liabilities and a $141.34 million total
shareholders' deficit.

EisnerAmper LLP, in New York, issued a "going concern"
qualification on the consolidated financial statements for the
year ended Dec. 31, 2013.  The independent auditors noted that
the Company has incurred a net loss, negative operating cash
flows, a working capital deficiency, and shareholders' deficiency
and has defaulted under its credit facility agreements.  Those
conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to
continue as a going concern.


NII HOLDINGS: Reports Financial Results for Second Quarter 2014
---------------------------------------------------------------
NII Holdings, Inc. on Aug. 11 announced its consolidated financial
results for the second quarter of 2014.  The Company reported a
net loss of 77,000 subscribers for the quarter, bringing its
quarter-end subscriber base to 9.4 million, a 6 percent decrease
from a year ago.  Financial results for the second quarter include
consolidated operating revenues of $969 million, a 23 percent
decrease compared to the second quarter of 2013; consolidated
adjusted OIBDA loss, which excludes the impact of non-cash asset
impairments, restructuring charges and other unusual items, of
$137 million; and a consolidated operating loss of $504 million.
For the second quarter of 2014, the Company generated a net loss
from continuing operations of $629 million, or $3.65 per basic
share.  Capital expenditures were $123 million for the quarter.

"Despite the actions we've taken to improve our operational
performance, we have fallen short in our efforts, leaving the
Company with a liquidity position that is not sufficient to
support the business," said Steve Shindler, NII Holdings' chief
executive officer.  "Our subscriber base in Brazil continued to
grow during the second quarter overcoming a market slowdown during
the World Cup and higher iDEN churn.  While our subscriber losses
in Mexico were lower than last quarter, we are still short of
where we need to be in that market.  We will continue to take
actions to improve our results in Mexico including the
optimization of our distribution channels and the staging of our
3G services to more effectively attract new customers.  We are
excited that Salvador Alvarez has joined our team as President of
Nextel Mexico as we work to return to subscriber growth.  However,
with our current liquidity position and the cash demands on our
business, these ongoing initiatives will not be sufficient to
allow the Company to continue to operate unless we are able to
restructure our debt obligations, find a strategic solution or
some combination of those approaches.  As a result, we will need
to make some key decisions in the short term to address our
liquidity situation in an effort to secure the best possible path
forward for our stakeholders."

NII Holdings' consolidated average monthly service revenue per
subscriber (ARPU) was $28 for the second quarter of 2014, down
from $36 in the same quarter last year.  The Company also reported
consolidated average monthly churn of 3.39 percent for the period,
compared to 2.67 percent in the second quarter of 2013.
Consolidated cost per gross add (CPGA) was $296 for the second
quarter of 2014, a $20 increase from the year ago period.

The Company ended the second quarter with $5.8 billion in total
debt and $1.0 billion in consolidated cash, restricted cash, and
investments, resulting in $4.8 billion of net debt.

"While we have seen progress on some operational metrics, our
financial performance continues to reflect the impact of the
deterioration in our revenue base," said Juan Figuereo, NII
Holdings' executive vice president and chief financial officer.
"We have put plans in place to stabilize our revenues and improve
our profitability, and we are taking more aggressive actions to
reduce our costs and balance our investments in growth against the
increasing pressure on our liquidity.  We also continue to work
with our advisors to identify and evaluate potential strategic
transactions and have engaged in a series of productive
discussions with holders of various series of our senior notes
regarding a potential consensual restructuring of our balance
sheet."

As a result of the Company's financial performance in combination
with the potential impact of its inability to satisfy certain
financial covenants under our existing debt obligations, the
Company will likely find it necessary to file a voluntary petition
for relief under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code in order to
implement a restructuring of its obligations on a stand-alone
basis or in conjunction with one or more potential strategic
transactions as disclosed in greater detail in the Company's
Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the second quarter that was
filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

In addition, due to the Company's ongoing review of its strategic
and restructuring options, the Company will not host a financial
results conference call this quarter.

                    About NII Holdings

With headquarters in Reston, Virginia, NII Holdings is an
international wireless operator with more than 7 million largely
post-pay, business subscribers.

                             *   *    *

As reported by the TCR on March 5, 2014, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services lowered its corporate credit rating on Reston, Va.-based
wireless carrier NII Holdings Inc. (NII) to 'CCC' from 'CCC+'.
"The downgrade follows the company's poor fourth-quarter 2013
results that were below our expectations, and its disclosure that
its auditors have uncertainty about the company's ability to
continue as a going concern," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Allyn Arden.

The TCR also reported on March 5, 2014, that Moody's Investors
Service downgraded the corporate family rating (CFR) of NII
Holdings Inc. ("NII" or "the company") to Caa1 from B3.  The
downgrade reflects the company's poor 2013 operating performance
and the risk that the company will violate the covenants governing
its Mexican and Brazilian subsidiary debt, which could trigger an
event of default for up to $4.4 billion of debt issued by
intermediate holding companies NII Capital Corp. and NII
International Telecom S.C.A.


NII HOLDINGS: S&P Cuts Corp Credit Rating 'CC' on Tight Liquidity
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered the corporate credit
rating on Reston, Va.-based wireless carrier NII Holdings Inc. to
'CC' from 'CCC'.  The outlook is negative.

At the same time, S&P lowered the ratings on subsidiary NII
International Telecoms S.C.A's senior unsecured notes to 'C' from
'CCC-'and on NII Capital Corp.'s senior unsecured debt to 'C' from
'CC'.  The recovery rating on NII International Telecoms' notes
remains '5', indicating S&P's expectation that lenders would
receive a modest (10% to 30%) recovery in the event of a payment
default.  The recovery rating on NII Capital Corp.'s notes remains
'6', indicating S&P's expectation that lenders would receive a
negligible (0% to 10%) recovery in the event of a payment default.

"The downgrade reflects the company's recent announcement that its
current liquidity position is not sufficient to support the
business and that it will likely file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy
protection, at which time we will lower all ratings to 'D'," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Catherine Cosentino.

NII's liquidity has been pressured due to ongoing subscriber
losses and lower average revenue per user (ARPU).  The company has
been plagued by delays in upgrading its network and intense
competitive pressures from other wireless carriers, which has hurt
its liquidity.  NII was not in compliance with its financial
covenants under its bank and vendor facilities in Brazil and
vendor facility in Mexico, although it did receive a waiver to the
vendor facilities financial covenants for the June 30, 2014
measurement date.

NII has an interest payment due Aug. 15, 2014, on about $2.4
billion of existing notes, which S&P does not expect it to meet.

held at:

         J. Caleb Boggs Federal Building
         844 King St., Room 5209
         Wilmington, DE 19801

The sole purpose of the meeting will be to form a committee or
committees of unsecured creditors in the Debtors' case.

The organizational meeting is not the meeting of creditors
pursuant to Section 341 of the Bankruptcy Code.  A representative
of the Debtor, however, may attend the Organizational Meeting, and
provide background information regarding the bankruptcy cases.

To increase participation in the Chapter 11 proceeding, Section
1102 of the Bankruptcy Code requires that the United States
Trustee appoint a committee of unsecured creditors as soon as
practicable.  The Committee ordinarily consists of the persons,
willing to serve, that hold the seven largest unsecured claims
against the debtor of the kinds represented on the committee.
Section 1103 of the Bankruptcy Code provides that the Committee
may consult with the debtor, investigate the debtor and its
business operations and participate in the formulation of a plan
of reorganization.  The Committee may also perform other services
as are in the interests of the unsecured creditors whom it
represents.

Nubisio Incorporated filed a Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. Del. Case
No. 14-11881) on Aug. 6, 2014 in Delaware. Ronald S. Gellert,
Esq., of Gellert Scali Busenkell & Brown, LLC, at Wilmington,

PACIFIC GOLD: Hires KLJ & Associates as New Accounting Firm
-----------------------------------------------------------
Silberstein Ungar, PLLC, notified Pacific Gold Corp. that its
principals joined the accounting firm of KLJ & Associates, LLP.
As a result of the transaction, on July 29, 2014, the Former
Accountant resigned as the Company's independent registered public
accounting firm and the Company engaged KLJ & Associates, LLP, as
the Company's independent registered public accounting firm.  The
engagement of the New Accountant was approved by the Company's
Board of Directors.

The Former Accountant's audit reports on the financial statements
of the Company for the fiscal years ended Dec. 31, 2013, and 2012
contained no adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion, nor were
they qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or
accounting principles, except that the audited financial
statements contained in the Company's Annual Reports on Form 10-K
for the fiscal years ended Dec. 31, 2012, and Dec. 31, 2013,
contained a going concern qualification.  During the fiscal years
ended Dec. 31, 2013, and 2012, and through the interim period
ended June 30, 2014, there were no "disagreements" with the Former
Accountant on any matter of accounting principles or practices,
financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedures.

During the fiscal years ended Dec. 31, 2013, and 2012, and through
the interim period ended July 31, 2014, there were the following
"reportable events: (as such term is defined in Item 304 of
Regulation S-K).  As disclosed in Part I, Item 4 of the Company's
Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2014, the
Company's management determined that the Company's internal
controls over financial reporting were not effective as of the end
of that period due to the existence of material weaknesses related
to the following:

  (i) inadequate segregation of duties and effective risk
      assessment; and

  (ii) insufficient written policies and procedures for
       accounting and financial reporting with respect to the
       requirements and application of both US GAAP and SEC
       guidelines.

These material weaknesses have not been remediated as of Aug. 5,
2014.

The Company said that prior to retaining the New Accountant, it
did not consult with the New Accountant.

about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.


PACIFIC THOMAS: Sept. 11 Hearing on Disclosure Statement
--------------------------------------------------------
U.S. Bankruptcy Judge M. Elaine Hammond is set to hold a hearing
on Sept. 11 to consider approval of Pacific Thomas Corp.'s latest
outline of its proposed plan to exit Chapter 11 protection.

Pacific Thomas on August 5 filed a revised disclosure statement,
which contains additional information about how the company would
get its funding for its restructuring plan.

Creditors of the company previously filed objections in which they
expressed doubt over the feasibility of the plan, saying the
company didn't have enough funds to implement the plan.

In the latest outline, Pacific Thomas estimated that it will have
about $14.47 million cash on hand when it officially exits
bankruptcy protection.

The company will get the funds from the proceeds of Eagle Group
Finance's $14.24 million refinance loan, and $229,912 from its
debtor-in-possession accounts.

About $9.4 million of the money will be used to pay some of the
company's secured creditors, including Summit Bank.  Pacific
Thomas will also use the funds to pay administrative claims
aggregating about $1.185 million, according to the latest outline.

In the previous version of Pacific Thomas' disclosure statement
filed in December last year, the company estimated that it would
have $850,000 to $1.35 million cash on hand when it exits
bankruptcy, and about $6.53 million, which it said, would come
from the proceeds of Thorofare Capital's refinance loan.  Judge
Hammond denied approval of the disclosure statement in mid-
January.

                       Treatment of Claims

Pacific Thomas' latest disclosure statement also revealed how
claims are classified under the proposed plan and how they will be
treated.

The company's largest secured creditor Summit Bank, which holds an
$8.5 million claim, will receive a down-payment of $8 million on
the effective date of the plan even if the appraised value of the
bank's collateral is less than this amount.  Pacific Thomas will
pay the remaining balance at 5% fixed interest rate from the
effective date through 60 equal monthly payments.

Matlock Law Group, P.C., the company's legal counsel, said it will
seek a court order prior to confirmation of the plan determining
the value of Summit Bank's collateral.

Another secured creditor, Bank of the West, will be paid in full.
The bank holds $3.18 million claim against the company.

Meanwhile, general unsecured claims of trade creditors, excluding
those with bifurcated claims, will be paid in full.  These
creditors will receive a single payment on the effective date.

Unsecured creditors with bifurcated claims will recover 100% of
their claims, payable in 60 equal monthly installments.  ,

Insiders with general unsecured claims won't receive payments for
their claims.  Insiders shall have their existing shares in
Pacific Thomas cancelled and new shares issued in the reorganized
company conditional to paying off Eagle's loan.  Additional new
shares may also be issued to insiders in exchange for a further
new value investment.

statement is available for free at http://is.gd/dwiAAB

The deadline for filing objections to the disclosure statement is
Sept. 4.

PACIFIC THOMAS: PMF Wants Stay Lifted to Foreclose Trust Deeds
--------------------------------------------------------------
Private Mortgage Fund LLC asked the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of California to lift the automatic stay so that
it can foreclose on its first deeds of trust encumbering a real
property in Oakland, California.

The company has already obtained relief from stay to file its
notice of default to begin the foreclosure proceedings.  However,
a court order issued on April 28 requires Private Mortgage to seek
court approval to file a notice of sale.

Private Mortgage is entitled to relief from stay given that the
company is "under-secured" by the property, according to its
lawyer, Scott Gizer, Esq., at Early Sullivan Wright Gizer & McRae
LLP, in Los Angeles, California.  He further said that the
property is not also necessary to Pacific Thomas Corp.'s
restructuring plan.

The court will hold a hearing on August 22 to consider the
request.

PHOENIX PAYMENT: Aug. 26 Hearing on NAB-Led Auction Set
-------------------------------------------------------
Phoenix Payment Systems, Inc., is seeking bankruptcy court
approval at a hearing Aug. 26, 2014, of proposed procedures where
EPX Acquisition Company, LLC, an affiliate of North American
Bancard, LLC, will purchase the assets for $50 million in cash,
absent higher and better offers.

As a result of a robust and multi-staged pre-petition marketing
process conducted by investment banker Raymond James & Associates,
Inc., the proposed purchase price under the stalking horse
agreement with NAB is 3.5 times greater than the preliminary
indication received late in 2013 from the very same bidder.

According to the Debtor, NAB's $50 million purchase offer is
sufficient to pay all undisputed creditors in full and still
leaves a substantial recovery for the Debtor's equity security
holders.

NAB's agreement to purchase the assets requires a closing of the
sale by Oct. 31, 2014.  Consistent with the requirements, the
Debtor proposes this timeline for conducting an "open and fair"
sale process:

           Event                                Deadline
           -----                                --------
      Bidding Procedures Hearing   On or about Aug. 26, 2014
      Proposed Bid Deadline        On or about Sep. 12, 2014
      Auction                      On or about Sep. 18, 2014
      Sale Hearing                 On or about Sep. 23, 2014

In the absence of a sale transaction conducted in accordance with
the proposed timeline, the Debtor says it may lose its sponsor
bank, face deterioration in the value of the business and be
unable to continue operations.

In the event NAB is outbid at the auction, the Debtor proposes to
pay the stalking-horse bidder a break-up fee of $1,500,000 (equal
to 3 percent of $50,000,000) and expense reimbursement of up to
$500,000.

The proposed sale order provides that, upon the closing (or as
soon as practicable thereafter), $2,000,000 of the cash proceeds
from the sale will be used by the Debtor to pay down amounts that
the Debtor owes to Bancorp Bank arising prior to the Petition
Date.

                         First Day Motions

Aside from the sale motion, the Debtor on the Petition Date filed
motions to, among other things:

   -- maintain its existing cash management system;
   -- pay prepetition workforce obligations;
   -- prohibit utilities from discontinuing service;
   -- pay critical trade vendor claims;
   -- access DIP financing;
   -- reject a contract with John T. Losier.

The Debtor also filed an application to hire a claims and noticing
agent.

The Debtor proposes to pay up to $350,000 for prepetition claims
of critical vendors and service providers in order to avoid
interruption in the Debtor's ability to process transactions for
customers.

The Debtor says that the DIP facility from Bancorp of up to
$5,000,000 and the use of the Bancorp's cash collateral will allow
it to continue to operate in the ordinary course of business and
allow it to move promptly forward with the sale.  The DIP facility
will mature in 90 days after the Petition Date.  The loan will
bear interest at the prime rate plus 2 percent.  The Debtor is
required to comply with these milestones:

   -- entry of the bid procedures order within 25 days after the
      Petition Date;

   -- an auction no later than 60 days after the Petition Date;

   -- an order approving the sale no later than 65 days after the
      Petition Date; and

   -- closing of the sale no later than 90 days after the
      Petition Date.

PHOENIX PAYMENT: Rejecting John Losier's $24K-Per-Year Contract
---------------------------------------------------------------
Phoenix Payment Systems, Inc., is seeking approval from the
bankruptcy court to reject, nunc pro tunc to the date of its
bankruptcy filing, a letter agreement with John T. Losier.

The contract, which the parties signed on March 28, 2005,
provides, in part, that Losier be employed by the Debtor on a
part-time basis in exchange for a base salary at the rate of
$24,000 per year.  The Debtor no longer requires the services of
Mr. Losier -- indeed, while the Debtor has been paying Losier as
the Contract obligates, Mr. Losier in fact has not worked for the
Debtor in any capacity for several years.  Accordingly, the
business judgment of the Debtor is that the contract should be
rejected.

The contract further provides that Mr. Losier's part-time
employment will terminate on the closing date of a "Change in
Control.  The contract defines a "Change in Control" as either the
consummation of a merger or a consolidation of the Debtor with or
into another entity or the dissolution, liquidation or winding up
of the Debtor.  The Debtor submits that the sale contemplated by
the sale motion constitutes a "Change of Control".  Accordingly,
the Debtor believes that the Contract will terminate by its own
terms on the closing date of the sale, if the sale is approved by
the bankruptcy court.

A hearing is slated for Sept. 3, 2014, at 11:30 a.m. (EDT).
Objections are due Aug. 18 at 4:00 p.m. (EDT).

PSL-NORTH AMERICA: CSX Blasts Terms in Planned $104MM Ch. 11 Sale
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that CSX Transportation Inc. took issue with PSL
North America LLC's proposed $104 million stalking horse sale,
saying the structure of the deal unfairly benefits the bankrupt
pipe maker's largest creditor.  According to the report, railroad
giant CSX, an unsecured creditor of PSL NA, does not oppose a
Section 363 auction of the debtors' assets but contends the
proposed sale terms are improper because ICICI Bank Ltd. would
have its $78 million debt assumed before the court can determine
whether its liens are properly secured, according to an objection
filed in court.

On June 16, 2014, PSL-North America LLC and PSL USA Inc., filed
voluntary petitions in Delaware (Lead Case No. 14-11477) seeking
relief under chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code.  The

The Debtors seek to have their cases jointly administered
for procedural purposes.

filing.

PUERTO RICO: Muni Bankruptcy Plan Would Aid Investors

quarters.  In addition, the company may face significant springing
debt maturities in October 2015 and January 2016, if more than
$100 million remains outstanding on its subordinated notes due
2016 (currently $350 million outstanding) as of Oct. 1, 2015.
Based on this significant repayment risk, S&P has revised its
assessment of Quicksilver's liquidity to "less than adequate" from
"adequate."  However, S&P believes the company still has several
options to avoid the springing maturities, including strategic
transactions such as a joint venture for its major Horn River
Basin project.

its mortgage servicing and origination platform assets to Ocwen
Loan Servicing, LLC and Walter Investment Management Corporation
for $3 billion; and its portfolio of roughly 50,000 whole loans to

REVEL AC: Restaurants, Other Tenants Seek Info on Failed Sale
-------------------------------------------------------------
Tom Corrigan, writing for Daily Bankruptcy Review, reported that
11 restaurants and other service providers at Atlantic City,
N.J.'s Revel resort and casino have asked a bankruptcy judge for
an immediate status conference in an attempt to coax out more
details about Revel's failed sale process, which has been largely
cloaked in secrecy.  According to the report, lawyers for the
property's so-called amenity tenants say they are "both shocked
and saddened" by Revel's decision to close down and lay off more
than 3,000 employees.

As previously reported by The Troubled Company Reporter, citing
The New York Times' DealBook, Revel Entertainment Group announced
that it would shut down after it failed to find a qualified buyer
during a court-supervised auction process.

                           About Revel AC

Revel AC, Inc. -- http://www.revelresorts.com/-- owns and
operates Revel, a Las Vegas-style, beachfront entertainment resort
and casino located on the Boardwalk in the south inlet of Atlantic
City, New Jersey.

Revel AC Inc. and five of its affiliates sought bankruptcy
protection (Bankr. D.N.J., Lead Case No. 14-22654) on June 19,
2014, to pursue a quick sale of the assets.

The Chapter 11 cases are assigned to Judge Gloria M. Burns.  The
Debtors' Chapter 11 cases are jointly consolidated for procedural
purposes.

Revel AC estimated assets ranging from $500 million to $1 billion,
and the same amount of liabilities.

White & Case, LLP, and Fox Rothschild, LLP, serve as the Debtors'
Counsel, and Moelis & Company, LLC, is the investment banker.  The
Debtors' solicitation and claims agent is Alixpartners, LLP.

The prepetition first lenders are represented by Cadwalader,
Wickersham & Taft LLP.  The prepetition second lien lenders are
represented by Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP.  The
DIP agent is represented by Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP.

This is Revel AC's second trip to bankruptcy.  The company first
sought bankruptcy protection (Bankr. D.N.J. Lead Case No. 13-
16253) on March 25, 2013, with a prepackaged plan that reduced
debt by $1.25 billion.  Less than two months later on May 15,
2013, the 2013 Plan was confirmed and became effective on May 21,
2013.


REVEL AC: Fox Rothschild, US Trustee Near End to Payments Row
-------------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that Fox Rothschild LLP and the U.S. government?s
bankruptcy watchdog are on the brink of resolving allegations that
attorneys for the firm received improper retainer payments from
the owner of Atlantic City?s bankrupt Revel Casino Hotel, a Fox
Rothschild lawyer confirmed to Law360.  According to Law360, the
attorney said he is hopeful that Fox Rothschild and Roberta
DeAngelis, the U.S. trustee for Region 3 of the bankruptcy courts,
will finalize a consensual resolution -- whose details he did not
provide.

Law360 reported that the U.S. government's bankruptcy watchdog
accused Fox Rothschild LLP of receiving improper retainer payments
from the owner of Atlantic City's bankrupt Revel Casino Hotel,
claiming that the resulting liability precludes the firm from
representing the debtor.  According to the report, Roberta
DeAngelis, the U.S. Trustee for Region 3 of the bankruptcy courts,
argued that Fox Rothschild cannot be considered a "disinterested"
professional under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code due to its preference
litigation exposure on roughly $821,000 in fee payments made
during the 90 days before Revel AC Inc. filed for bankruptcy.

REVEL AC: Fitch Says 2nd Lien Lenders Likely Biggest Losers
-----------------------------------------------------------
Second lien lenders are likely to sustain material losses in the
bankruptcy of Revel Casino Hotel, according to Fitch Ratings.
Despite the Atlantic City hotel announcing that it plans to shut
down by Sept. 10, the company will continue to seek a buyer.  So
far, no buyers have moved to purchase the casino as a going
concern in a court-supervised bankruptcy auction.  The potential
liquidation also illustrates the depth of distress for the
Atlantic City gaming market.

In past casino bankruptcy cases, the gaming and hotel properties
continued to operate following emergence from bankruptcy, although
a number were purchased during the bankruptcy.  Fitch analyzed 10
gaming bankruptcies in its Sept 4, 2013 report, "Gaming, Lodging
and Restaurant Bankruptcy Enterprise Values and Creditor
Recoveries."  All 10 reorganized as going concerns with a median
reorganization multiple of 7.2x, including Revel.  Revel emerged
from its March 2013 bankruptcy as a going concern with an
estimated enterprise value of $450 million.

In its first bankruptcy, Revel reduced debt to $275 million from
$1.45 billion.  However, cash flows did not improve as projected,
which led to continuing operating losses despite cost
restructuring efforts.

Fitch believes the asset value in Revel's 2014 case will be
significantly lower than the $450 million estimated enterprise
value used in the 2013 plan of reorganization, particularly if the
casino ceases to operate, while land and equipment are sold
piecemeal.

Revel had approximately $447 million of debt consisting $137
million of first lien facility borrowings and $310 million of
second lien debt as of the June 2014 bankruptcy filing date.
Recoveries for lenders will not be known until the liquidation is
completed, either through either a piecemeal sale or as a casino
enterprise.

Despite the possible liquidation for Revel Atlantic City, Fitch
anticipates that future gaming company bankruptcies will be
predominantly going concerns.  Single-site project financings,
such as Revel and Fontainebleau, are considered by Fitch to be at
greater risk for liquidation than large multisite operators.


REVEL AC: Atlantic City Mayor Issues Statement on Closing
---------------------------------------------------------
Atlantic City Mayor Don Guardian on Aug. 12 issued a statement
regarding the closing of Revel.

"We are disappointed in the decision that the Board of Revel has
made as there appeared to be several bidders for the property.
While I am not privy to the current facts that led to this
decision, I do know this process is a complex one compounded by an
extremely short time frame and cash flow challenges.  This might
be Revel's last chapter, but not the last one for this building.
My administration remains committed to the workers, the
businesses, and the visitors who are impacted by [Tues]day's
news."

RIVER-BLUFF: Receivership to be Terminated
------------------------------------------
The Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Washington
approved a motion by Revitalization Partners LLC, general receiver
for River-Bluff Enterprises, Inc, for the termination of the state
court receivership of the Debtor.  Judge Frank L. Kurtz ordered
that upon the chapter 11 Debtor's payment of the receiver's final
fees and expenses, the receiver may file a motion to terminate the
receivership in the Kittitas County Superior Court.  The Court did
not rule on the receiver's request for approval of its unpaid fees

                  About River-Bluff Enterprises

Ellensburg, Washington-based River-Bluff Enterprises, Inc., filed
a Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition (Bankr. E.D. Wash. Case No. 14-
00843) on March 11, 2014.  In its schedules, the Debtor disclosed
$10,231,777 in total assets and $17,609,653 in total liabilities.

This is River-Bluff's second bankruptcy filing in less than two
years.  It previously sought bankruptcy protection (Bankr. E.D.
Cal. Case No. 12-92017) in Modesto, California, in July 2012.  The
case was dismissed in 2013.

Gary W. Dryer, Assistant U.S. Trustee for Region 18, informed the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Washington that
due to the lack of entities eligible to serve on the unsecured
creditors' committee, the U.S. Trustee is not appointing an
unsecured creditors' committee in the Chapter 11 case of River-
Bluff Enterprises, Inc.

                          *     *     *

River-Bluff Enterprises filed with the Bankruptcy Court a Plan of
Reorganization and accompanying disclosure statement.  A copy of
the Disclosure Statement is available for free at:

         http://bankrupt.com/misc/RIVER-BLUFF_137_ds.pdf

The Debtor and guarantors Byron and Rose Haney, Eric and Sue
Layman, Marcy and Jeanette Haney and Roger and Marleta Haney --
who each signed personal guarantees on certain secured debts --
anticipate that the Plan will be funded by a combination of
future net cash flow from the future operations of the Debtor, and
the contributions by the Guarantors, who are also the holders of
Class 12 Shareholder Interests.  The Debtor estimates that the
confirmation date will occur within 2014.

All creditors provided for under the Plan would be paid 100% of
their allowed claims, unless they have otherwise consented by
voting in favor of a less favorable treatment which would allow
for the separate classification of those claims being paid less
than 100% of their allowed claims.


RIVER CITY RENAISSANCE: Turnover Requirement Waiver Order Issued
----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Kevin R. Heunnekens of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Eastern District of Virginia, Richmond Division, issued an interim
order granting River City Renaissance, LC, and River City
Renaissance III, LC's emergency motion under Section 543 of the
Bankruptcy Code for limited waiver of turnover requirement.

Prior to the Petition Date, the Debtors' lead secured creditor
obtained, in state court, the appointment of a receiver to, among
other duties, operate the Debtors' businesses, namely rental
apartment units.  By the motion, the Debtors seek an order from
the Bankruptcy Court directing the Receiver to continue to operate
and manage the properties for the benefit of the Debtors' estates,
as well as tenants at the properties, until the time as the Debtor
and the Liquidating Representative determine the appropriate
strategy to manage the properties.  Additionally, the Debtors
request that the Court direct the Receiver to cooperate with the
Debtors' representatives and professionals, including, without
limitation, the Debtors' proposed counsel and the Liquidating
Representative.

The terms and provisions of the Order will expire on Sept. 30,
2014, at 5:00 p.m., prevailing Eastern Time.

River City Renaissance, LC, and River City Renaissance III, LC,
sought Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. E.D. Va. Case Nos. 14-34080
and 14-34081) in Richmond, Virginia, on July 30, 2014.  The cases
are assigned to Judge Keith L. Phillips.  Richmond, Virginia-based
River City Renaissance estimated $10 million to $50 million in

in assets and debts.  The Debtors have tapped Spotts Fain PC as
counsel.


RIVER CITY RENAISSANCE: Given Until Sept. 10 to File Schedules
--------------------------------------------------------------

Eastern District of Virginia, Richmond Division, extended until
Sept. 10, 2014, the time in which River City Renaissance, LC, and
River City Renaissance III, LC, must file their schedules of
assets and liabilities and statements of financial affairs.

The Debtors sought the extension because there is presently no
individual employed or associated with either of the Debtors who
has the knowledge and ability to assist with the preparation of
the Schedules as the individual who has that knowledge and ability
has been incarcerated and is expected to receive a prison
sentence.  The Debtors are still gathering information needed to
complete the Schedules.

ROTHSTEIN ROSENFELDT: Investors Say Deal Doesn't Bar Claims
-----------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that a group of investors in a feeder fund of
jailed attorney Scott Rothstein's $1.2 billion Ponzi scheme fought
back against hedge fund managers who say that their $32 million
deal with Rothstein's bankrupt law firm bar the investors' state
court claims.  According to the report, the investors, known as
the FEP Group, filed an opposition to the hedge funds' motion to
enforce a release in the $32 million deal with the estate of
Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler PA, arguing that the general release
was with the estate and that the settlement never included a bar
order precluding their claims in a two-year-old suit pending in
state court.

                    About Rothstein Rosenfeldt

Scott Rothstein, co-founder of law firm Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler
PA -- http://www.rra-law.com/-- was suspected of running a
$1.2 billion Ponzi scheme.  U.S. authorities claimed in a civil
forfeiture lawsuit filed Nov. 9, 2009, that Mr. Rothstein, the
firm's former chief executive officer, sold investments in non-
existent legal settlements.  Mr. Rothstein pleaded guilty to five
counts of conspiracy and wire fraud on Jan. 27, 2010.

Creditors of Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler signed a petition sending
the Florida law firm to bankruptcy (Bankr. S.D. Fla. Case No.
09-34791).  The petitioners include Bonnie Barnett, who says she
lost $500,000 in legal settlement investments; Aran Development,
Inc., which said it lost $345,000 in investments; and trade
creditor Universal Legal, identified as a recruitment firm, which
said it is owed $7,800.  The creditors alleged being owed money
invested in lawsuit settlements.

Herbert M. Stettin, the state-court appointed receiver for
Rothstein Rosenfeldt, was officially carried over as the
Chapter 11 trustee in the involuntary bankruptcy case.

On June 10, 2010, Mr. Rothstein was sentenced to 50 years in
prison.

The official committee of unsecured creditors appointed in the
case is represented by Michael Goldberg, Esq., at Akerman
Senterfitt.

RRA won approval of an amended liquidating Chapter 11 plan
pursuant to the Court's July 17, 2013 confirmation order.  The
revised plan, filed in May, is centered around a $72.4 million
settlement payment from TD Bank NA.

                            About Seanergy

Athens, Greece-based Seanergy Maritime Holdings Corp. is an
international company providing worldwide seaborne transportation
of dry bulk commodities.  The Company owns and operates a fleet
of seven dry bulk vessels that consists of three Handysize, two
Supramax and two Panamax vessels.  Its fleet carries a variety of
dry bulk commodities, including coal, iron ore, and grains, as
well as bauxite, phosphate, fertilizer and steel products.

Seanergy Maritime reported net income of $10.90 million on $23.07
million of net vessel revenue for the year ended Dec. 31, 2013, as
compared with a net loss of $193.76 million on $55.61 million of
net vessel revenue for the year ended Dec. 31, 2012.

As of March 31, 2014, the Company had $3.27 million in total
assets, $645,000 in total liabilities and $2.62 million in total
shareholders' equity.

Ernst & Young (Hellas) Certified Auditors Accountants S.A., in
Athens, Greece, issued a "going concern" qualification on the
consolidated financial statements for the year ended Dec. 31,
2013.  The independent auditors noted that the Company, as of
December 31, 2013 continued to be in breach of certain terms and
covenants of the loan facility with its remaining lender, and had
a working capital deficit and an accumulated deficit.  Following
the disposal of its entire fleet subsequent to December 31, 2013
in the context of its restructuring plan, the Company is unable to
generate sufficient cash flow to meet its obligations and sustain
its continuing operations.  These conditions raise substantial
doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.


SEARS METHODIST: Panel Hires Greenberg Traurig as Counsel
---------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors of Sears Methodist
Retirement System, Inc. and its debtor-affiliates seeks
authorization from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern
District of Texas to retain Greenberg Traurig, LLP as counsel to
the Committee, effective June 19, 2014.

The Committee requires Greenberg Traurig to:

   (a) consult with the Debtors' professionals or representatives
       concerning the administration of these Cases;

   (b) prepare and review pleadings, motions and correspondence;

   (c) appear at and be involved in proceedings before the Court;

   (d) provide legal counsel to the Committee in its investigation
       of the acts, conduct, assets, liabilities, and financial
       condition of the Debtors, the operation of the Debtors'
       businesses, and any other matters relevant to these cases;

   (e) analyze the Debtors' proposed use of cash collateral and
       debtor-in-possession financing;

   (f) advise the Committee with respect to its rights, duties,
       and powers in these cases;

   (g) assist the Committee in analyzing the claims of the
       Debtors' creditors and in negotiating with such creditors;

   (h) assist the Committee in its analysis of and negotiations
       with the Debtors or any third party concerning matters
       related to, among other things, the terms of a sale, plan
       of reorganization, or other conclusion of these cases;

   (i) assist and advise the Committee as to its communications to
       the general creditor body regarding significant matters in
       these cases;

   (j) assist the Committee in determining a course of action that
       best serves the interests of the unsecured creditors; and

   (k) perform other legal services as may be required under the
       circumstances of these cases and are deemed to be in the
       interests of the Committee in accordance with the
       Committee's powers and duties as set forth in the
       Bankruptcy Code.

Greenberg Traurig will be paid at these hourly rates:

       Clifton R. Jessup, Jr.      $700 (standard rate is $860)
       Nancy A. Peterman           $695 (standard rate is $850)
       David D. Cleary             $595 (standard rate is $595)
       Bryan L. Elwood             $500 (standard rate is $580)
       Paul T. Martin              $425 (standard rate is $515)
       Rebecca D. Rosenthal        $250 (standard rate is $350)

Greenberg Traurig will also be reimbursed for reasonable out-of-
pocket expenses incurred.

While Greenberg Traurig's standard hourly rates are set at a level
designed to fairly compensate Greenberg Traurig for its work and
to cover fixed routine overhead expenses, the Committee requested,
and Greenberg Traurig voluntarily agreed, to provide discounted
hourly rates to the Committee and to cap their blended hourly
rate, solely for purposes of these Cases given that, among other
things, these Cases involve not-for-profit Debtors and to
accommodate the Committee's request for a fee accommodation.  With
respect to the blended hourly rate agreement, in the event that
Greenberg Traurig's blended hourly rate (the "Blended Rate"),
computed by dividing the total fees by the total number of hours
incurred during the fee application period, exceeds $500 per hour,
Greenberg Traurig agrees to adjust its requested fees for that
time period to equal the total number of hours incurred multiplied
by $500 (the "Blended Rate Limitation").  Neither the Blended Rate
nor the Blended Rate Limitation shall affect Greenberg Traurig's
requests for reimbursement of actual and necessary expenses and
disbursements.

Clifton R. Jessup, Jr., shareholder of Greenberg Traurig, assured
the Court that the 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 Debtors and their estates.

The Office for the U.S. Trustee has recently adopted new
Guidelines for Reviewing Applications for Compensation and
Reimbursement of Expenses Filed under 11 U.S.C. Section 330 by
Attorneys in Large Chapter 11 Cases (the "New UST Guidelines").
Unless otherwise agreed or ordered, Greenberg Traurig intends to
make a reasonable effort to comply with the New UST Guidelines
both in connection with this application and the interim and final
fee applications to be filed by Greenberg Traurig in these Chapter
11 Cases.  Greenberg Traurig also intends to work cooperatively
with the U.S. Trustee Program to comply with the New UST
Guidelines.

The Court for the Northern District of Texas will hold a hearing
on the motion on Aug. 29, 2014, at 9:30 a.m.

SGK VENTURES: NewKey Group Asserts Committee's Plan Unconfirmable
-----------------------------------------------------------------
NewKey Group, LLC, et al., ("the NewKey Lenders") and J. Mark
Lozier objected to the confirmation of the Amended Plan of
Liquidation of the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors in
the Chapter 11 case of SGK Ventures, LLC.

According to the NewKey Group, the Committee's Plan serves no
legitimate purpose, and it is patently unconfirmable because,
among other things:

   i) it provides for the NewKey Lenders to receive or retain less
than they would in a chapter 7 liquidation;

  ii) it is not fair and equitable to them; and

iii) it attempts an end-run around the claims allowance process
as a means of fixing the amount of the NewKey Claims.

According to the NewKey Group, the Plan provides for an exchange
of the NewKey Lenders' existing notes, which are currently
accruing default interest at 24% per annum and are comfortably
secured by all of the estate's cash, including net sale proceeds,
for new notes that will accrue interest at the prime rate and will
be secured solely by a limited cash account.

The NewKey Group hold secured claims totaling more than
$13 million; Lozier holds unsecured claims totaling more than
$1.3 million; and they have all voted to reject the Plan.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Aug. 1, 2014,
the Committee filed on June 30, 2014, an Amended Plan of
Liquidation, and an amended explanatory Disclosure Statement.

The Amended Disclosure Statement provides that all cash necessary
for the payments pursuant to the Plan will be obtained from
existing cash balances, or, in the case of payments to be made by
the Liquidating Trustee, from the proceeds of the Liquidating
Trust Assets.

Administrative Claims and Priority Tax Claims will be paid in
full on the later of the Effective Date of the Plan or when such
claims become Allowed.  The range of estimated Administrative
Claims is $10,000 to $100,000 and the range of estimated Priority
Tax Claims is $250,000 to $350,000.

Based on current levels of cash and the Debtor's financial
projections, the Committee anticipates the Debtor having between
$22.9 million and $23.1 million of Cash as of July 1, 2014.
The amount of cash is more than sufficient to satisfy all of the
Debtor's Allowed Administrative Claims and Allowed Priority Tax
Claims in addition to Allowed Class 1 Other Priority Claims,
Allowed Class 2 Other Secured Claims, and Allowed Class 3
Convenience Claims.  Furthermore, the Committee believes that this
amount of Cash will also be sufficient to:

     (a) create a reserve for the alleged secured Disputed Class 5
NewKey Claims, in case they are Allowed as Allowed NewKey Secured
Claims; and

     (b) make an initial distribution to Holders of Allowed Class
4 General Unsecured Claims.

The Committee's Plan provides that within 45 after the Effective
Date, the Liquidating Trustee will seek authority from the
Bankruptcy Court to make an initial distribution to Holders of
Allowed General Unsecured Claims.  The Committee anticipates that
NewKey will object to any such distribution until its Claims have
been fully resolved.  It is currently impossible to determine the
timing of any initial distribution to Allowed General Unsecured
Claims.

SHELBOURNE NORTH: Coxe Investments May File Late Claim for $100K
----------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Illinois
approved a settlement between Shelbourne North Water Street, L.P.,
and Coxe Investments, LLC, whereby Coxe is granted leave to file a
$100,000 general unsecured non-priority claim after the claims bar

             About Shelbourne North Water Street L.P.

A group of creditors filed an involuntary Chapter 11 petition
against Chicago, Illinois-based Shelbourne North Water Street L.P.
(Bankr. D. Del. Case No. 13-12652) on Oct. 10, 2013.  The case is
assigned to Judge Kevin J. Carey.

The petitioners are represented by Zachary I Shapiro, Esq., and
Russell C. Silberglied, Esq., at Richards, Layton & Finger, P.A.,
in Wilmington, Delaware.

The Debtor consented on Nov. 8, 2013, to being in Chapter 11
reorganization.

FrankGecker LLP represents the Debtor in its restructuring
effort.

                            *   *   *

The Bankruptcy Court has given the Debtor exclusivity through Oct.
31, 2014, to file a plan or solicit acceptances of that plan.

The Debtor filed a Plan of Reorganization in March 2014, embodying
a plan investment agreement (PIA) which provides up to $135
million of funding for a plan of reorganization that will pay all
bona fide claims in full.  Atlas Apartment Holdings, LLC, and
Credit Suisse LLC (the "Tier One Capital Provider") committed to
provide the funding.  The plan was to enable the Debtor to emerge
from bankruptcy and with Atlas to move forward with the
construction of the "Chicago Spire", a 2,000-foot high residential
building at the intersection of the Chicago River and Lake
Michigan.

Several creditors, including the holder of the Debtor's primary
secured debt, RMW Acquisition Company, LLC, filed objections to
the PIA.  This led to parties engaging in more negotiations, which
ultimately led to a settlement agreement under which there would
be payments to RMW and other non-insider creditors by a date
certain (Oct. 31, 2014, or March 31, 2015), or alternatively,
transfer of the Debtor's real property to RMW or its designee with
substantial payments to non-insider creditors funded by RMW.

The Debtor filed a Second Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization in
mid-April 2014, to reflect the PIA with Atlas as well as the
alternative plan transaction with RMW.

Effective July 31, 2014, Sinclair Broadcast completed the
acquisition of Perpetual Corporation and the equity interest of
Charles Television, LLC, for an aggregate purchase price of $985
million plus working capital of $53.4 million.  The Company

bank credit agreement, and cash on hand.  The Allbritton Companies
owned certain broadcast assets related to the following nine
stations along with the respective network affiliation or program
service arrangements: WHTM (ABC) in Harrisburg/Lancaster/York, PA;
WJLA (ABC) in Washington, DC; WBMA(ABC), WCFT (ABC), and

General Operations, Inc., subject to approval of the FCC,

respective markets.

                   Credit Agreement Amendment

On July 31, 2014, Sinclair Television Group, Inc., a wholly-owned
subsidiary of Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc., entered into an
amendment and restatement of its credit agreement with JPMorgan
Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent, the guarantors party
thereto and the lenders.

Pursuant to the Amendment, STG raised $400 million of incremental
term loan B commitments.  The incremental term loan matures in
July 2021.  The term loans were issued at 99.75% of par and bears
interest at LIBOR plus 2.75% with a 0.75% LIBOR floor.  The
proceeds, together with the proceeds of STG's offering of 5.625%
notes and cash on hand, were used to finance the acquisition of
the Allbritton companies on July 31, 2014.

Additionally, in connection with the Amendment, $327.7 million of
term loan A, including $72.5 million of the remaining $108.2
million delayed draw term loan A commitments, were converted into
revolving commitments.  The Company has $361.2 million of
committed term loan A, which consists of $325.5 million currently
outstanding and $35.7 million under the delayed draw to be
borrowed on or before Dec. 31, 2014, and the Company has $485.2
million in revolving commitments.

The Company also amended certain terms of the Bank Credit
Agreement, including, but not limited to, increased flexibility in
dispositions related to requirements of regulatory authorities, an
increase in the non-TV/radio acquisition capacity, the elimination
of certain maintenance financial covenants, an increase to the
first lien indebtedness maintenance test from 3.75 to 1.00 to 4.00
to 1.00, and increased flexibility under certain restrictive
covenants.

The Bank Credit Agreement continues to contain certain (i)
restrictive covenants, including, but not limited to, restrictions
on indebtedness, liens, payments, investments, mergers,
consolidations, liquidations and dissolutions, acquisitions, sales
and other dispositions of assets, loans and advances and affiliate
transactions and (ii) financial maintenance covenants, including a
first lien indebtedness ratio.  The Bank Credit Agreement also
continues to include affirmative covenants, representations and
warranties and events of default, including certain cross-default
and cross-acceleration provisions, customary for an agreement of
its type.

STG's obligations under the Bank Credit Agreement remain (i)
jointly and severally guaranteed by the Guarantors, which include
the Company and certain subsidiaries of the Company and (ii)
secured by a first-priority lien on substantially all of the
tangible and intangible assets (whether now owned or hereafter
arising or acquired) of STG and the subsidiaries of STG and the
Company that are Guarantors and, with respect to the Company, the
capital stock of certain of its directly owned subsidiaries.

SOUNDVIEW ELITE: Court Denies Motion to Remove Chapter 11 Trustee
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Robert E. Gerber denied party-in-interest Gerti Muho's
motion to remove the Chapter 11 trustee in the Chapter 11 cases of
Soundview Elite Ltd., et al.

On July 3, Mr. Muho, requested that the Court terminate the
appointment of a trustee, dismiss the action, and return Mr. Muho
to rightful control of the assets that are wrongly listed as
Debtors in the action, or the entities.

Corinne Ball, solely in her capacity as trustee, objected to
party-in-interest Alphonse Fletcher, Jr.'s joinder in part in the
trustee's objection to the motion to dismiss and in the Muho
motion to remove the trustee.  The trustee said that the joinder
is procedurally improper.  Having failed to comply with the
Court's order, Mr. Fletcher must not be allowed to press equally
specious and unspecified allegations under the guise of the
joinder.

Mr. Fletcher, in his joinder, stated that if the professional to
be employed does not satisfy the standard, the Code prohibits the
Court from authorizing the employment.  The trustee should be
replaced and Mr. Muho must not be granted control of the Debtors.

The trustee also filed an objection to the Muho motion, stating
that Mr. Muho resigned as a director of the Debtors on April 3,
2013, well before the Debtors filed the cases.

Mr. Muho also responded to trustee's objection.

The Chapter 11 trustee is represented by:

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on April 29, 2014,
District Judge J. Paul Oetken affirmed the Bankruptcy Court order
appointing a trustee for the Debtors.

                       About Soundview Elite

Six mutual funds originally created by Citco Group of Cos.,
including Soundview Elite Ltd., filed petitions for Chapter 11
protection on Sept. 24, 2013, in Manhattan to avoid undergoing
bankruptcy liquidation in the Cayman Islands, where they are
incorporated.

The funds are Soundview Elite (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 13-13098)
Soundview Premium, Ltd. (Case No. 13-13099); Soundview Star Ltd.
(Case No. 13-13101); Elite Designated (Case No. 13-13102); Premium
Designated (Case No. 13-13103); and Star Designated (Case No.
13-13104).  The petitions were signed by Floyd Saunders as
corporate secretary.  By order dated Oct. 16, 2013, the Court
directed that the Debtors' bankruptcy cases be procedurally
consolidated and jointly administered.

SoundView Elite Ltd. and two similarly named funds were the target
of a winding-up petitions in the Cayman Islands filed in August by
Citco, which had sold its interest in the funds' manager years
before.  An investor, who was removed from the funds' board in
June, filed a different winding-up petition in August, aimed at
three funds created later to hold illiquid assets.

Soundview Elite estimated assets and debts of at least $10
million.  The funds said in a court filing their total cash assets
of about $20 million are held in the U.S., where the funds are
managed.  Court papers list the funds' total assets as $52.8
million, against debt totaling $28 million.

Judge Robert E. Gerber presides over the U.S. cases.

Warren J. Martin, Jr., Esq., Mark J. Politan, Esq., Terri Jane
Freedman, Esq., and Rachel A. Segall, Esq., at Porzio, Bromberg &
Newman, PC, serve as the Debtors' counsel.  CohnReznick LLP serves
as financial advisor.

Peter Anderson and Matthew Wright, as Joint Official Liquidators
of the Debtors, are represented in the U.S. proceedings by John A.
Pintarelli, Esq., James J. Beha, II, Esq., William H. Hildbold,
Esq., at Morrison & Foerster LLP.

The U.S. Trustee solicited for the formation of an official
committee of unsecured creditors, but to date one has not been
formed.


SOUNDVIEW ELITE: Court Denies Withdrawal of the Turnover Motion
---------------------------------------------------------------
The District Court for the Southern District of New York denied
defendant Soundview Composite Ltd.'s to withdraw the reference to
the Bankruptcy Court of an adversary proceeding brought by Corinne
Ball, as Chapter 11 trustee of Soundview Elite Ltd., seeking
turnover and an accounting pursuant to Section 542 of the
Bankruptcy Court.

According to the Court order, the complaint purported to assert a
straightforward turnover claim pursuant to Section 542.  The
complaint alleges that the debtor purchased certain Class H shares
from defendant under a Private Placement Memorandum.

The Court said that the defendant has not demonstrated cause for
withdrawing the reference.

SOUTHERN FILM EXTRUDERS: Hires John Barnes as Accountant
--------------------------------------------------------
Southern Film Extruders, Inc. seeks authorization from the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of North Carolina to
employ John L. Barnes, Jr., CPA as professional and to continue as
the person to act for the corporate Debtor, nunc pro tunc to
Oct. 1, 2013.

Mr. Barnes was employed as the Chief Financial Officer of the
Debtor while the Debtor was in operation.  After the assets of the
Debtor were sold on October 1, 2013, Mr. Barnes continued to
assist in the administration of the estate, and anticipates that
he will continue to assist with winding up the affairs of the
Debtor.

The Debtor wants to employ Mr. Barnes as a professional to
continue to provide the services needed by the estate while
assuring Mr. Barnes that he will be fairly compensated for his
time and costs.

The Debtor anticipates that Mr. Barnes will be of significant
assistance in resolving the matter involving the Claim of Longhorn
Packaging, Inc.  This is a matter involving litigation filed in
Texas by such party against the Debtor seeking a Claim in excess
of $2,500,000 for alleged damages arising from the delivery of
products by the Debtor.

Any compensation or reimbursement expenses to Mr. Barnes under his
employment would be required to be paid based upon the proper
filing of Applications to the Court and approval of the same after
notice and hearing.

Mr. Barnes assured the Court that he 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 Debtors and
their estates.

William P. Miller, the U.S. Bankruptcy Administrator, objects to
the Debtor's application for employment of Mr. Barnes saying the
employment of Mr. Barnes as a professional is unnecessary under
11 U.S.C. Section 327(b).  "The general view is that officers of
the debtor are not professionals whose employment must be approved
by the court. . . .  The correct analysis is that executives of a
debtor in possession should not be treated as professional
persons."

The BA says the Court:

     -- should deny the Application of John L. Barnes for
employment as a professional,

     -- authorize his continued employment and compensation to be
approved by the Court, and

     -- award fees of $12,337.50 and $10 in expenses.

STAG INDUSTRIAL: Fitch Affirms BB Rating on $139MM Preferred Stock
------------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has assigned a 'BBB-' rating to STAG Industrial
Operating Partnership, L.P.'s $50 million unsecured notes issued
through a private placement on July 1, 2014.  The notes have a 12-
year term and bear interest at a fixed rate of 4.98%.

Fitch also affirmed its ratings for STAG Industrial, Inc. and its
operating partnership STAG Industrial Operating Partnership, L.P.
(hereafter STAG or the company) as follows:

STAG Industrial, Inc.

   -- Issuer Default Rating (IDR) at 'BBB-';
   -- $139 million preferred stock at 'BB'.

STAG Industrial Operating Partnership, L.P.

   -- IDR at 'BBB-';
   -- $200 million senior unsecured revolving credit facility at
      'BBB-';
   -- $300 million senior unsecured term loans at 'BBB-'.

The Rating Outlook is Positive.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

The ratings reflect STAG's credit strengths, which include low
leverage and strong fixed charge coverage for the rating,
excellent liquidity, a sizable unencumbered asset pool and
improving access to capital, including unsecured private
placements and term loans and common equity via ATM programs.

These credit positives are balanced by the company's portfolio
concentration in secondary industrial markets and short operating
history as a public company.

The Positive Outlook reflects the upward momentum in STAG's credit
profile, including rapid organizational growth, improving fixed-
charge coverage and enhanced access to unsecured debt capital -
all in the context of leverage sustaining in the low 5.0x range.

STAG has achieved many of the rating sensitivities it has
identified as potentially leading to positive ratings momentum.
However, the Positive Outlook captures pending additional
seasoning in the company's operating portfolio and metrics.
Specifically, the agency will watch closely for evidence of
stabilization in the company's same-store net operating income
(NOI) growth following a period of unanticipated weakness during
most of 2013.

Internal Growth to Stabilize and Improve

STAG's cash same-store NOI declined for the TTM ended June 30,
2014 including year-over-year decreases of 5.5% decline in third
quarter 2013 (3Q'13), 0.7% in 4Q'13, 4.9% in 1Q'14 and 1.2% in
2Q'14.  The company attributes the same-store weakness to
unusually low tenant retention due to a period of heightened
corporate change and, to a lesser extent, the harsh weather during
the 2013-2014 winter season.

The company has replaced some of the larger tenant vacancies,
including the loss of Brown Shoe at its Sun Prairie, WI, asset
that was backfilled with minimal downtime.  However, free rent
granted under selected replacement tenant leases has been a near-
term drag on cash same store NOI growth that should abate as these
concessions burn off.

Fitch projects same store NOI growth of 0.5% in 2014, 2.9% in 2015
and 3.3% in 2016 improved occupancy and positive GAAP rent spreads
for new and renewal leases.  The agency's projections assume
stabilization and improvement in the company's tenant retention
ratios during the second half of 2014 through 2016, towards a more
normalized level of between 70% and 80%.

Low Leverage

STAG's leverage was 5.2 times (x) based on an annualized run rate
of STAG's recurring operating EBITDA for the quarter ending June
30, 2014, which is strong for the 'BBB-' rating.  This compares
with 5.5x on an annualized basis for the quarter ending Dec. 31,
2013 and 5.3x for the quarter ending June 30, 2013.  Adjusting
2Q'14 earnings for the impact of partial period acquisitions would
reduce STAG's leverage to 5.0x.  Fitch's projections anticipate
that the company will sustain leverage of approximately 5.0x
during the next three years on an annualized basis that includes a
full-year's impact of earnings from projected acquisitions.

Small Size But Improving Access to Capital

STAG's sale of $100 million of private placement unsecured notes
(including $50 million under a delayed draw set for Oct. 1, 2014)
is an important milestone in the company's transition to a
predominantly unsecured borrowing strategy that evidences broader
access to unsecured debt capital.  Prior to the company's
inaugural private unsecured notes placement, STAG's unsecured
borrowings were limited to three bank term loans, as well as
drawdowns under the company's unsecured revolver.  However, Fitch
continues to view STAG as a relatively unseasoned unsecured bond
issuer pending further private placement issuance.

Strong Fixed-Charge Coverage

Fitch expects the company's fixed charge coverage to sustain in
the low 3.0x through 2016.  The low interest rate environment and
higher capitalization rates on class B industrial properties in
secondary markets should allow STAG to continue deploying capital
on a strong spread investing basis.  STAG's fixed charge coverage
was 3.3x for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 and 3.1x and 2.6x for
the years ending Dec. 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively.

Excellent Liquidity

STAG had 82% availability under its $200 million unsecured
revolving credit facility as of June 30, 2014 and no debt
maturities until 2016.  Moreover, STAG's unencumbered assets,
defined as unencumbered net operating income (NOI) (as calculated
in accordance with the company's seven-year unsecured term loan
agreement) divided by a stressed capitalization rate of 10%,
covered its unsecured debt by 2.8x in 2Q'14, which is strong for
the current ratings.  The company's substantial unencumbered asset
pool is a source of contingent liquidity that enhances STAG's
credit profile.

Straightforward Business Model

STAG has not made investments in ground-up development or
unconsolidated joint venture partnerships.  The absence of these
items helps simplify the company's business model, improve
financial reporting transparency and reduce potential contingent
liquidity claims, which Fitch views positively.  While the company
may selectively pursue the acquisition of completed build-to-suit
(BTS) development projects in the future, Fitch would anticipate
only a moderate amount of such activity by STAG on an ongoing
basis.  Moreover, Fitch views the acquisition of completed BTS
development projects as lower risk given the inherent non-
speculative nature of this activity.

Strong Management

Fitch views management favorably due to its successful track
record in executing its single-tenant industrial portfolio
acquisition strategy, as well as its extensive real estate capital
markets experience.  Fitch does not expect the company's recent
appointment of Geoff Jervis as Chief Financial officer to result
in a change in financial policies.  Fitch anticipates that
Mr. Jervis will continue to broaden STAG's unsecured debt base
beyond bank debt and that the company will remain committed to its
low-leverage strategy.

Secondary Market Locations

STAG's strategy centers on the acquisition of individual Class B,
single tenant industrial properties (warehouse/distribution and
manufacturing assets) predominantly in secondary markets
throughout the United States by sourcing third party purchases and
structured sale-leasebacks.  Such transactions typically range in
price from $5 million to $50 million and have higher going-in
yields, stronger internal rates of return, and less competition
from other buyers.  The company has only minimal exposure to what
are traditionally considered the 'core' U.S. industrial and
logistics markets, which include Chicago, Los Angeles/Inland
Empire, Dallas - Fort Worth, Atlanta and New York/Northern New
Jersey.  Fitch views this as a credit negative given superior
liquidity characteristics for industrial assets in 'core' markets
-- both in terms of financing and transactions.

Limited Public Company Track Record

STAG has a limited track record as a public company, having gone
public in 2Q'11.  This track record is balanced by 1) the
homogeneity of industrial properties, 2) management's prior
experience successfully managing STAG's predecessor as a private
company that dates back to 2004 and 3) management's extensive real
estate and capital markets experience.

Preferred Stock Notching

The two-notch differential between STAG's IDR and preferred stock
rating is consistent with Fitch's criteria for a U.S. REIT with an
IDR of 'BBB-'.  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.

Positive Outlook

The Positive Outlook is based on Fitch's expectation for
stabilization and improvement in the company's cash same-store NOI
growth over the rating horizon, coupled with Fitch's expectation
that STAG will maintain leverage and fixed-charge coverage of
approximately 5.0x and 3.0x on a run rate basis, metrics that are
consistent with a 'BBB' IDR.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

The following factors may have a positive impact on STAG's
ratings:

   -- Stabilization, followed by sustained improvement in STAG's
      tenant retention and same-store NOI growth is Fitch's
      primary consideration for positive ratings momentum;
   -- Continued access to the unsecured bond market;
   -- Leverage calculated on an annualized basis adjusted for
      acquisitions sustaining below 5.5x (leverage was 5.0x as of
      June 30, 2014);
   -- Fixed charge coverage to sustaining above 3.0x (coverage was
      3.3x as of June 30, 2014).

The following factors may have a negative impact on the company's
ratings and/or Outlook:

   -- Fitch's expectation for leverage sustaining above 6.5x;
   -- Fixed charge coverage sustaining below 2.0x;
   -- A meaningful increase in the percentage of STAG's encumbered
      assets relative to gross assets.


STEREOTAXIS INC: No Longer Faces Any Shareholder Litigation
-----------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri, upon
a joint motion of the parties, dismissed without prejudice the
purported shareholder derivative action filed on Dec. 2, 2011, by
Carl Zorn against the directors of Stereotaxis, Inc., and the
Company as a nominal defendant.  Previously, on March 18, 2014,
the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri
granted the Company's motion to dismiss the purported securities
class action filed on Oct. 7, 2011, against the Company and two of
the Company's past executive officers by Kevin Pound, and the
Court entered judgment in favor of the defendants and against the
plaintiff in that case.  The plaintiffs did not file a notice of
appeal prior to the deadline of April 17, 2014.  With the
dismissal of these lawsuits, the Company is no longer a party to
any shareholder litigation.

                  Second Quarter Form 10-Q Filed

Stereotaxis filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission
its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing a net loss of $1.94
million on $8.04 million of total revenue for the three months
ended June 30, 2014, as compared with a net loss of $3 million on
$9.73 million of total revenue for the same period in 2013.

For the six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company reported a net
loss of $6.08 million on $16.40 million of total revenue as
compared with a net loss of $7.92 million on $18.14 million of
total revenue for the same period last year.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2014, showed $27.28
million in total assets, $41.98 million in total liabilities and a
$14.70 million total stockholders' deficit.  At June 30, 2014, the
Company had $10.6 million of cash and equivalents.

A full-text copy of the Form 10-Q is available for free at:

                        http://is.gd/5onKNx

Stereotaxis registered with the SEC 1,000,000 shares of common
stock issuable under the 2012 Stock Incentive Plan for a proposed
maximum aggregate offering price of $3.18 million.  A full-text
copy of the Form S-8 is available at http://is.gd/SxSPnb

The Company also registered with the SEC 250,000 shares of common
stock issuable under the Company's 2009 Employee Stock Purchase
Plan for a proposed aggregate maximum offering price of $795,000.
A full-text copy of the Form S-8 is available at:

                         About Stereotaxis

Based in St. Louis, Missouri, Stereotaxis, Inc., is a manufacturer
and developer of a suite of navigation systems in interventional
surgical procedures.  The Company's Epoch Solution is used in the
treatment of arrhythmias and coronary artery disease.

Stereotaxis reported a net loss of $68.75 million in 2013,
following a net loss of $9.23 million in 2012.

Ernst & Young LLP, in St. Louis, Missouri, issued a "going
concern" qualification on the consolidated financial statements
for the year ended Dec. 31, 2013.  The independent auditors noted
that the Company has incurred recurring operating losses and has a
net capital deficiency.  These conditions raise substantial doubt
about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.


STILLWATER MINING: S&P Raises CCR to 'B+'; Outlook Stable
---------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its corporate credit
rating on Billings, Mont.-based Stillwater Mining Co. to 'B+' from
'B'.  As a result, S&P also raised its issue-level ratings on the
company's senior unsecured debt to 'BB-' from 'B+'. The recovery
ratings remain unchanged at '2', indicating S&P's expectation for
a substantial (70% to 90%) recovery in the event of a payment
default.  The outlook is stable.

The upgrade is driven by Stillwater's strengthening credit
measures, including leverage falling below 3x, in large part due
to the retirement of more than $200 million in debt since the
beginning of 2013.  In addition, the company continues to maintain
close to $500 million in cash and liquid investments on its
balance sheet.  In light of the company's revised strategy
following leadership changes in mid-2013, S&P believes the scope
of possible long-term capital spending has been reduced such that
we now consider liquidity to be "strong."

"The stable outlook reflects our view that Stillwater will
maintain its credit measures over the next year, but also has the
capital structure to withstand operating or market shocks along
the way," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Chiza Vitta.

A positive rating action would be predicated on an improved
business risk profile, or additional deleveraging below 2x.  A
strengthened business risk profile could be the result of
increased geographic or product diversity.

S&P could take a negative rating action if cash balances fell such
that it no longer viewed liquidity as strong.  This could result
from a dividend or share repurchase.  S&P could also lower the
rating if EBITDA weakened, pushing leverage toward 4x.  This could
happen if Stillwater experienced operating challenges that limited
production or decreased profitability.


SUN BANCORP: 1-for-5 Reverse Stock Split Takes Effect
-----------------------------------------------------
Sun Bancorp, Inc., announced the effectiveness of its 1 for 5
reverse stock split of the Company's common stock, which became
effective at 12:00 a.m. Eastern Time on Aug. 11, 2014, for
shareholders of record as of 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on Aug. 8,
2014.  The Company's common stock began trading on the NASDAQ
Global Select Market on a split-adjusted basis at market open on
August 11.

Upon the effectiveness of the reverse stock split, each five
shares of the Company's issued and outstanding shares of common
stock were automatically combined into one share of the Company's
common stock.  The reverse stock split affects all issued and
outstanding shares of the Company's common stock, as well as the
number of shares of common stock available for issuance under the
Company's equity incentive plans.  In addition, the reverse stock
split will effect a reduction in the number of shares of common
stock issuable upon the exercise of stock options outstanding as
of the Record Date, with a proportional increase in the exercise
price.  No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the
reverse stock split.  In lieu of issuing fractional shares, the
Company will round up to one whole share of Common Stock in the
event a shareholder would be entitled to receive a fractional
share of Common Stock.  The number of authorized shares of the
Company's common stock decreased from 200,000,000 shares, to
40,000,000 shares and the par value per share of the Company's
common stock increased from $1.00 per share to $5.00 per share as
a result of the reverse stock split.

The Company has retained its transfer agent, Computershare Trust
Company, to act as its exchange agent for the reverse stock split.
Computershare will send shareholders of record as of the Record
Date a letter of transmittal providing instructions for the
exchange of their certificates.  Shareholders owning shares via a
broker or other nominee will have their positions automatically
adjusted to reflect the reverse stock split, subject to the
brokers' particular processes, and will not be required to take
any action in connection with the reverse stock split.
Shareholders should not destroy any stock certificates, nor should
they submit any certificates for exchange until requested to do so
in accordance with the materials to be distributed by
Computershare.

On Aug. 7, 2014, Sun Bancorp filed with the New Jersey Division of
Revenue a Certificate of Amendment to the Company's Amended and
Restated Certificate of Incorporation to: (i) effect the one-for-
five (1 for 5) reverse stock split of the Company's issued and
outstanding shares of common stock as of 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time
on Aug. 8, 2014; (ii) effect a decrease in the number of
authorized shares of the Company's common stock from 200,000,000
shares, to 40,000,000 shares; and (iii) increase the par value of
each share of the Company's common stock from $1.00 per share to
$5.00 per share.  The Certificate of Amendment became effective on
Aug. 11, 2014.

The Certificate of Amendment was approved and adopted by the
Company's Board of Directors on July 17, 2014.

TACTICAL INTERMEDIATE: Gets Final OK on $3.5-Mil. Bankruptcy Loan
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Kevin Gross entered a final order allowing Tactical
Intermediate Holdings, Inc., et al., to borrow up to $3,500,000
from Wells Fargo Bank.

The DIP Lender is granted allowed superpriority administrative
expense claims for the DIP Loan Facility and all obligations under
the loan documents.

The extension of the DIP Loan will terminate on the earlier of (i)
the occurrence of an event of default as described in the DIP Loan

               About Tactical Intermediate

Tactical Intermediate Holdings, Inc., and its affiliates'
operations are comprised of two major lines of business -- a
footwear line, and a fabric and clothing line, including flame
resistant material ("Massif").

Footwear is comprised of the Altama group ("Altama") and the
Wellco Group ("Wellco").  Wellco was founded in 1941 and
manufactures and sells combat boots, primarily for the United
States Military as well as commercial uniform and work boots for a
variety of customers.  Altama was founded in 1969 and manufactures
and sells boots for the United States and international militaries
as well as for federal, state and local agencies, military
schools, police, uniform shops and Army/Navy retailers.

Headquartered in Ashland, Oregon, Massif was founded in 1999 by a
group of veteran search and rescue team members and alpine
climbers who believed that the options for sanctioned fire
resistant protective gear at the time were too limited.  Massif is
a world leader in supplying flame resistant and high performance
outdoor apparel to the military, law enforcement, search and
rescue professionals, and the wildland firefighting community.

Tactical Intermediate Holdings, Inc., and its affiliates sought
Chapter 11 protection in Delaware on July 8, 2014, with plans to
quickly sell their assets.

Judge Kevin Gross is assigned to the Chapter 11 cases.  The
Debtors have requested joint administration of the cases under
Case No. 14-11659.

The Debtors have tapped Klehr Harrison Harvey Branzburg LLP as
counsel, FTI Consulting, Inc., as financial advisor, Houlihan
Lokey Capital, Inc., as investment banker, and PrimeClerk as
claims and noticing agent.

Massif Apparel Enterprises LLC, the entity formed by Sun Capital
Partners Group V LLC, to serve as stalking horse bid for Massif's
assets, is represented by Corey Fox, Esq., Brad Weiland, Esq., and
Gregory F. Fesce, Esq., at Kirkland & Ellis LLP.

TACTICAL INTERMEDIATE: Gets Court OK for Key Employee Programs
--------------------------------------------------------------
Tactical Intermediate Holdings, Inc., et al., sought and obtained
Bankruptcy Court approval for a key employee incentive program
(KEIP) for two insiers and a key employee retention program (KERP)
for certain non-insider employers and make payments contemplated
under both programs.

The Debtors identified 2 executives and 11 non-insider employees
whose knowledge and skill are essential to maximizing the value of
their estates during the sale and winddown process of their
business.

                            The KEIP

  The KEIP Participants are individuals that have the most control
  and oversight of the Debtors' liquidation process.

  For the first senior management employee, the Incentive Bonus is
  tied to the level of Cumulative Operating Cash Disbursements
  calculated as of Aug. 30, 2014.  If the Cumulative Operating
  Cash Disbursements as of that date are 5% below he $6,474,000
  target, the Incentive Bonus to be paid is $50,000.  If the
  Cumulative Operating Cash Disbursements as of that date are 4%
  below the $6,474,000 target, the Incentive Bonus to be paid is
  $40,000.

  For the second senior management employee, the Incentive Bonus
  is tied to the level of Cumulative Footwear Government Account
  Receivable Collections calculated as of Aug. 30, 2014.  If the
  Cumulative Footwear Government Account Receivable Collections as
  of that date meet the $2,117,000 target, the Incentive Bonus to
  be paid is $10,000.

  The Incentive Bonus will be paid on the effectiveness of the
  Plan.

                              The KERP

  The KERP Participants include 11 non-insider employees from
  various functions, including accounting, finance, sales, human
  resources, information technology and operations.

  The Retention Bonuses will range from 2 weeks to one month of
  each KERP Participant's base salary, with those KERP
  Participants who are most critical and irreplaceable eligible
  for payments approaching the upper end of the range.  The
  Retention Bonuses range from $1,183 to $12,000 and the average
  is $6,322.

  The estimated cost of the KERP, assuming all KERP Participants
  remain employed through the relevant payment date, is $69,539.

  The Retention Bonuses will be paid upon termination of a KERP
  Participant.

The Debtors maintain that their prepetition lenders support the
KEIP and KERP and the DIP Loan budget was modeled to include the
cost of the programs.

All amounts earned and payable under the KEIP and KERP will have
administrative expense priority under the Bankruptcy Code, the
Court ruled.

The Debtors also sought and obtained Court permission to file
redacted versions of the KEIP and KERP documents.

UNI-PIXEL INC: Reports $6.1 Million Net Loss in Second Quarter
--------------------------------------------------------------
Uni-Pixel, Inc., filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing a net loss
of $6.06 million on $0 of revenue for the three months ended
June 30, 2014, as compared with a net loss of $4.69 million on
$749 of revenue for the same period in 2013.

The Company also reported a net loss of $12.25 million on $0 of
revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2014, as compared with a
net loss of $3.74 million on $5.07 million of revenue for the same
period last year.

As of June 30, 2014, the Company had $44.40 million in total
assets, $5.60 million in total liabilities and $38.80 million in
total shareholder's equity.

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $30.4 million at June 30, 2014,
as compared to $39.4 million at Dec. 31, 2013.

The second quarter of 2014 was a pivotal quarter for UniPixel, as
it transitioned from lab-based single sensor batch plating process
to roll-to-roll pilot production.  As announced in June, the
company achieved a fully-functional, roll-to-roll pilot production
line comprised of a plating line at its Texas facility, with
printing, final testing and packaging at its Kodak facility in New
York. UniPixel and its manufacturing partner, Kodak, have been
conducting roll-to-roll pilot manufacturing and yield studies on
the overall process.

"We are working closely with Kodak to transfer the pilot plating
technology from the Texas facility to our full production facility
in New York," noted Jeff Hawthorne, UniPixel's president and CEO.
"Our joint engineering and process development on the pilot
production line continues to advance.  The roll-to-roll pilot
production line has begun to produce appreciable quantities of
sensors on a weekly basis to support yield ramp activities and
sampling for our development customers.

"Statistical analysis of these process runs have directed the
focus of our teams on certain areas in order to improve overall
process yield, and we are making measured progress.  In addition
to yield ramp development efforts, transfer of the modified
plating process to the production plating assets at the Kodak
facility are well underway, and we have begun process verification
and validation."

USEC INC: Posts Net Loss of $28 Million in Second Quarter 2014
--------------------------------------------------------------
USEC Inc. on Aug. 13 reported a net loss of $28.0 million for the
quarter ended June 30, 2014, compared to a net loss of $40.9
million for the second quarter of 2013.  For the six months ended
June 30, 2014, USEC reported a loss of $78.8 million compared to
$42.9 million in the same period of 2013.

The financial results for the second quarter of 2014 reflect a 63
percent reduction in revenue from the low enriched uranium (LEU)
segment compared to the same period in 2013 following the
cessation of enrichment at the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant
(GDP) in the second quarter of 2013.  The net loss was primarily
driven by lower sales volume and non-production expenses related
to transition activities at the Paducah GDP as USEC prepares the
facility for an anticipated return to the Department of Energy
(DOE) in October.  Other factors affecting financial results for
the quarter were expenses for the Company's reorganization
efforts, workforce reductions, advisory costs and advanced
technology costs related to demonstration of the American
Centrifuge technology.

"During the second quarter, we continued to execute our Paducah
transition plan to return the facility to DOE in October, we
delivered LEU to our customers on time and in specification, and
we earned a gross profit," said John K. Welch, USEC president and
chief executive officer.  "Over the past year, the non-production
costs related to preparing the Paducah GDP for return have weighed
on our profitability, but we are nearing the conclusion of this
process.

"We have also been focused on successfully concluding the Chapter
11 process in the near term.  The voting period for those
investors holding USEC convertible notes and preferred equity
ended on August 11, which is another important milestone in the
process.  Voting results are being certified and will be filed
with the Bankruptcy Court in advance of a confirmation hearing
that is scheduled for September 5.  We anticipate emerging from
bankruptcy protection shortly thereafter," Mr. Welch said.

Revenue

Revenue for the second quarter of 2014 was $121.2 million, a
decrease of $163.6 million or 57 percent compared to the same
quarter of 2013.  In the six-month period ending June 30, 2014,
revenue was $269.8 million, a decrease of $335.4 million or 55
percent from the same period in 2013

Cash Flow

At June 30, 2014, USEC had a cash balance of $123.3 million
compared to $314.2 million at December 31, 2013, and $194.7
million at June 30, 2013.

Reorganization

Costs for advisors related to the Company's bankruptcy filing
totaled $4.7 million in the three months and $11.9 million in the
six months ended June 30, 2014.

2014 Outlook Update

USEC is going through a period of transition during 2014, and it
is:

   -- Taking steps to strengthen its financial structure by
addressing balance sheet issues through a Chapter 11 filing with
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court so that it can emerge as a stronger
sponsor of the American Centrifuge project;

   -- Executing its contract with ORNL to continue to research,
development and demonstration of the American Centrifuge
technology through the ACTDO Agreement;

   -- Completing the transition of the Paducah site, and
appropriately reducing the size of its corporate organization; and

   -- Preparing its financial statements to reflect changing the
historical book basis of the assets and liabilities of the Company
to a new basis of accounting upon emergence from Chapter 11.

As reported by the TCR on July 10, 2014, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services lowered its corporate credit rating on Memphis, Tenn.-
based Verso Paper Holdings LLC to 'CC' from 'CCC'.  "The rating
action reflects the announcement that the company plans to conduct
a two-part exchange for its senior secured second-priority notes
and senior subordinated notes," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst David Kuntz.

The TCR reported on June 24, 2014, that Moody's Investors Service
downgraded Verso Paper Holdings LLC's corporate family rating
(CFR) to Caa3 from B3 and probability of default rating (PDR) to
Caa3-PD from Caa2-PD.  Verso's Caa3 CFR reflects the elevated risk
of a default or distressed exchange in the next 12 months, the
company's weak liquidity, high leverage (adjusted leverage over
13x), and the expectation that the company will continue to face
secular demand declines and weak prices for most of the grades of
coated paper it produces.


VIGGLE INC: Considers July 2014 as Best Month to Date
-----------------------------------------------------
Viggle Inc. released user data showing July 2014 as the best month
in the company's history, in terms of adding new registered users
and driving monthly active users on the Viggle Platform.

The figures show about 860,000 monthly active users and an
increase of approximately 566,000 new registered users.

Viggle Inc. has seen increasing cross-platform adoption of users
of its various web, social and mobile properties which has boosted
both key performance indicators.  Viggle first announced the
expansion of its platform integration -- which allows point
earning on the web -- on June 2.  That enabled users at Wetpaint,
the leading digital destination and social publisher for
entertainment fans, to earn Viggle Points for watching original
video content.

Viggle and Wetpaint enhanced the consumer proposition on July 24
with the introduction of the Wetpaint VIP program.  Wetpaint VIP
membership ties Wetpaint users into the Viggle Platform and
provides access to exclusive content and discounted rewards, plus
automatic entry into sweepstakes.

The introduction of point-earning opportunities and the VIP
program have dramatically increased the number of registrations
for the Viggle Platform from Wetpaint's millions of monthly unique
visitors.  In addition to the rapid registration growth, Viggle
and Wetpaint are also seeing a marked increase in the number of
original videos users are watching to earn Viggle Points they can
redeem for rewards like song downloads, gift cards, electronics,
and more.

"The early results of bringing our points earning and
entertainment rewards model to web content are very encouraging,"
said Greg Consiglio, president and chief operating officer of
Viggle.  "Each month, Wetpaint reaches a highly social audience of
TV fans who are now more engaged than ever.  This is just the very
successful beginning of expanding our entertainment and brand
engagement rewards solutions to wherever fans are watching their
favorite content."

Viggle Inc.'s platform consists of the Viggle app, which offers

WESTERN CAPITAL: Loses Dist. Court Appeal in Blixseth Case
----------------------------------------------------------
Western Capital Partners, LLC, appeals the judgment entered
against it by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Montana1 in favor of Richard J. Samson, trustee for the Chapter 7
estate of Edra D. Blixseth.  The Trustee brings this action to set
aside Edra's personal guaranty in June 2007 for a $13,065,000 loan
provided by WCP to entities owned by Edra's son, Matthew Crocker,
as a constructively fraudulent transfer under 11 U.S.C. Sec.
548(a).  The Trustee contends the guaranty was constructively
fraudulent because Edra: (1) was insolvent on a balance sheet
basis; (2) was unable to pay her bills as they came due; and (3)
lacked adequate capital for the business in which she was engaged.
Bankruptcy Judge Ralph B. Kirscher determined that the guaranty
was constructively fraudulent and entered judgment in favor of the
Trustee.  WCP appealed.

Chief District Judge Dana L. Christensen affirmed the Bankruptcy
Court's decision in her August 12, 2014 Order available at
http://is.gd/bdMu25from Leagle.com.

According to Judge Christensen, upon a de novo review of the
Bankruptcy Court's legal conclusions, the Court determines the
Bankruptcy Court's order awarding judgment against WCP in favor of
the Trustee was based on legal grounds within the contemplation of
the Bankruptcy Code and on factual findings that are not clearly
erroneous.

Judge Christensen said the Bankruptcy Court's order awarding
judgment in favor of the Trustee and against WCP for the sum of
$4,013,410.99 and the return of all property transferred on August
24, 2010, is affirmed.  The Bankruptcy Court's judgment for the
award of $356,609.69 on the claim of usury is affirmed.  The
Bankruptcy Court's judgment is affirmed in all other respects.

As reported by the TCR on Nov. 6, 2012, Standard & Poor's
Ratings Services raised its corporate credit rating on Englewood,
Co.-based Westmoreland Coal Co. (WLB). to 'B-' from 'CCC+'.

"The upgrade reflects our view that WLB is less vulnerable to
default after successfully negotiating less restrictive covenant
requirements for an unrated $110 million term loan due 2018," said
credit analyst Gayle Bowerman.  "Our assessment of WLB's business
risk profile as 'vulnerable' and financial risk profile as 'highly
leveraged' are unchanged.  We also revised our liquidity score to
'adequate' based on the covenant relief and additional liquidity
provided under the company's new $20 million asset-based loan
(ABL) facility from 'less than adequate'."

In January, 2014, Standard &Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its
'B-' corporate credit rating on Westmoreland and removed all
ratings from CreditWatch, where they were placed with developing
implications on Dec. 26, 2013.  The outlook is stable.

Westmoreland Coal carries a Caa1 corporate family rating from
Moody's Investors Service.


WILLIAM DEL BAGGIO: Trustee Doesn't Own Proceeds to Warrants
------------------------------------------------------------
District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers accepted the Amended
Proposed Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law submitted by
Bankruptcy Judge Thomas E. Carlson in an interpleader action
against R. Todd Neilson, the Liquidating Trustee of the Del
Biaggio Liquidating Trust.  Judge Rogers overruled the Trustee's
objections to the Bankruptcy Court's findings.

The interpleader action arises from a dispute concerning the
ownership of a warrant for the purchase of common stock of a
corporation commonly known as Serengeti.  The Serengeti Common
Warrant was cashed out for $11.2 million.  Two parties claim the
right to those proceeds: (a) the Trustee of the Del Biaggio
bankruptcy estate; and (b) Thomvest Holdings, LLC.

Del Biaggio filed a voluntary chapter 11 petition for bankruptcy
in June 2008.  The Serengeti Common Warrant was not discovered
until 2010, when Thomvest and the Trustee learned that Serengeti
had been acquired and a shareholder representative was trying to
determine to whom the value of the warrant should be paid. Both
Thomvest and the Trustee claimed a right to those proceeds. The
shareholder representative filed an interpleader action in the
United States District Court for the Western District of
Washington, which was the transferred to the Northern District of
California district court and referred to the Bankruptcy Court.

The Trustee asserts ownership on the principal ground that it
controls all of Sand Hill Capital Holdings Inc.'s assets and the
newly-found warrant should vest to Sand Hill.  Sand Hill was an
investment fund founded in the late 1990s by Debtor William Del
Biaggio.

Thomvest, by contrast, contends that pursuant to Agreement 1 --
entitled "STOCK PURCHASE AND SALE AGREEMENT BETWEEN SAND HILL
CAPITAL HOLDINGS, INC. AND THOMVEST HOLDINGS LLC" -- Sand Hill
transferred all its assets of value to Thomvest in partial
satisfaction of is $10 million debt, and that thus, the Serengeti
Common Warrant should be deemed part of those assets.

The Trustee challenges Thomvest's current position as inconsistent
with a position it asserted in the past and refers the Court to a
previous dispute between the Trustee and Thomvest.  In August
2008, Thomvest and the Trustee learned that Sand Hill had
recovered $32,000 that had escheated to the State of California.
The Trustee claimed the funds as the owner of Sand Hill. Thomvest
claimed that it was entitled to the funds under the Purchase Price
Adjustment Clause of Agreement 2 -- entitled "SALE OF SAND HILL
CAPITAL HOLDINGS, INC. FROM THOMVEST HOLDINGS LLC TO WILLIAM J.
DEL BIAGGIO III" -- because the funds had been recovered within
one year after the effective date of the agreement.

Thomvest and the Trustee settled the dispute by dividing the funds
equally.  The Trustee now contends that Thomvest's previous
reliance on the PPA Clause in Agreement 2 is inconsistent with its
current contention that it obtained through Agreement 1 all assets
of Sand Hill other than the corporate name and a Kiwico promissory
note.

During these proceedings, the parties agree that the Serengeti
Common Warrant had a value of no more than $880,000 as of November
30, 2007.  Thus, the total value of all Sand Hill assets,
including the Serengeti Common Warrant, would have been less than
20% of the debt Sand Hill owed Thomvest.

* U.S. Tells Big Banks to Rewrite "Living Will" Bankruptcy Plans
----------------------------------------------------------------
Ryan Tracy, Victoria McGrane and Christina Rexrode, writing for
The Wall Street Journal, reported that U.S. regulators said 11 of
the nation's biggest banks haven't demonstrated they can collapse
without causing damaging economic repercussions and ordered them
to try again.  According to the report, the Federal Reserve and
the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. said bankruptcy plans
submitted by big banks make "unrealistic or inadequately
supported" assumptions and "fail to make, or even to identify, the
kinds of changes in firm structure and practices that would be
necessary to enhance the prospects for" an orderly failure.


* Judge Reluctantly Signs Off on SEC-Citigroup Deal
---------------------------------------------------
Jacob Gershman, writing for The Wall Street Journal, reported that
U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff approved a $285 million fraud
settlement between the Securities and Exchange Commission and
Citigroup Inc. over claims the bank misled investors about its
bets against a $1 billion mortgage-bond deal.  According to the
report, Judge Rakoff signed off on the deal two months after the
Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York ruled that he had
erred in blocking the settlement, saying his rejection was "an
abuse of discretion."


* Mortgage Bond Group Building Standards Sought by Treasury
-----------------------------------------------------------
Jody Shenn, writing for Bloomberg News, reported that the U.S.
mortgage-bond industry is taking steps toward creating standards
meant to help kick-start sales as the government seeks to wean the
housing market from its support.

According to the report, the Structured Finance Industry Group,
which represents firms from money managers to lenders including
Bank of America Corp. to JPMorgan Chase & Co., released the first
in a series of papers mapping out its effort to create recommended
contract language for new securities to address the mistrust
that?s plagued the market since the 2008 financial crisis.  About
200 individuals from 50 companies are working on the project,
called RMBS 3.0, the report said.


* Fed Says U.S. Banks Eased Loans Amid Broad Pickup in Demand
-------------------------------------------------------------
Steve Matthews, writing for Bloomberg News, reported that banks in
the U.S. eased lending requirements amid a widespread increase in
demand during the second quarter, according to a Federal Reserve
survey.  According to the report, the Fed said on Aug. 5 in its
quarterly survey of senior loan officers that a continued easing
of lending standards and terms for many types of loan categories
amid a broad-based pickup in loan demand.  The central bank
surveyed 75 domestic banks and 23 U.S. units of foreign banks from
July 1 to July 15, the Bloomberg report said.


* U.S. Policymakers Gird for Rash of Corporate Expatriations
------------------------------------------------------------
Lori Montgomery, writing for The Washington Post, reported that
Washington policymakers are bracing for a wave of corporations to
renounce their U.S. citizenship over the next few months,
depriving the federal government of billions of dollars in tax
revenue and stoking public outrage ahead of the Nov. 4
congressional elections.  According to the report, so far this
year, about a dozen U.S. companies -- including such well-known
brands as Medtronic medical devices and Chiquita bananas -- have
merged with foreign firms and shifted their headquarters offshore
to avoid U.S. taxes, analysts say.


* Weil Gotshal Hires Kirkland Bankruptcy Partner
------------------------------------------------
Law360 reported that Weil Gotshal & Manges LLP has reportedly
snatched a New York bankruptcy partner from Kirkland & Ellis LLP
with plans to make him a leader of its restructuring group.
According to Law360, The Wall Street Journal reported Ray
Schrock's pending move to Weil, citing two people familiar with
the hiring.

So you think you know the profile of the average consumer
debtor: either deadbeat slouched on a sagging sofa with a three-
day growth on his chin or a crafty lower-middle class type
opting for bankruptcy to avoid both poverty and responsible debt
repayment.

Except that it might be a single or divorced female who's the
one most likely to file for personal bankruptcy protection, and
her petition might be the last stage of a continuum of crises
that began with her job loss or divorce. Moreover, the dilemma
might be attributable in part to consumer credit industry that
has increased its profitability by relaxing its standards and
extending credit to almost anyone who can scribble his or her
name on an application.

Such are among the unexpected findings in this painstaking study
of 2,400 bankruptcy filings in Illinois, Pennsylvania, and Texas
during the seven-year period from 1981 to 1987. Rather than
relying on case counts or gross data collected for a court's
administrative records, as has been done elsewhere, the authors
use data contained in the actual petitions. In so doing, they
offer a unique window into debtors' lives.

The authors conclude that people who file for bankruptcy are, as
a rule, neither impoverished families nor wily manipulators of
the system. Instead, debtors are a cross-section of America. If
one demographic segment can be isolated as particularly debt-
prone, it would be women householders, whom the authors found
often live on the edge of financial disaster. Very few debtors
(3.7 percent in the study) were repeat filers who might be
viewed as abusing the system, and most (70 percent in the study)
of Chapter 13 cases fail and become Chapter 7s. Accordingly, the
authors conclude that the economic model of behavior--which
assumes a petitioner is a "calculating maximizer" in his in his
decision to seek bankruptcy protection and his selection of
chapter to file under, a profile routinely used to justify
changes in the law--is at variance with the actual debtor
profile derived from this study.

A few stereotypes about debtors are, however, borne out. It is
less than surprising to learn, for example, that most debtors
are simply not as well-off as the average American or that while
bankrupt's mortgage debts are about average, their consumer
debts are off the charts. Petitioners seem particularly
susceptible to the siren song of credit card companies. In the
study sample, creditors were found to have made between 27
percent and 36 percent of their loans to debtors with incomes
below $12,500 (although the loans might have been made before
the debtors' income dropped so low). Of course, the vigor with
which consumer credit lenders pursue their goal of maximizing
profits has a corresponding impact on the number of bankruptcy
filings.

The book won the ABA's 1990 Silver Gavel Award. A special 1999
update by the authors is included exclusively in the Beard Book
reprint edition.

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 by e-mail.

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 the nation's bankruptcy courts.  The
list includes links to freely downloadable of these small-dollar
petitions in Acrobat PDF documents.

Each Friday's edition of the TCR includes a review about a book of
