241 MAIN STREET: Wants To Use Cash Collateral Through Oct. 25
-------------------------------------------------------------
241 Main Street, Inc., seeks permission from the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the District of Rhode Island to use cash collateral of
RBS Citizens, N.A., Vend Lease Company, Rewards Network
Establishment Services, Inc., Sysco Boston, LLC, and NextWave
Enterprises, LLC, for an additional 20 days, from Oct. 6, 2017,
through Oct. 25, 2017.

The Debtor proposes to provide adequate protection to Citizens for
the Debtor's use of cash collateral and grant replacement liens to
Citizens.

The Debtor needs to use cash collateral to continue the operation
of its business and maintain its workforce.

The Court entered a final order on Sept. 5, 2017, authorizing use
of the Citizens' cash collateral.  The Court authorized the
Debtor's use of cash collateral through Oct. 5, 2017, with certain
monthly adequate protection payments to Citizens.

The Debtor says that without continued use of cash collateral after
Oct. 5, 2017, it will be unable to fund continued operations and
will have to close.  The Debtor wants to continue to operate and
continue its negotiation to propose a plan.

A copy of the Debtor's Motion is available at:

241 Main Street, Inc., sought protection under Chapter 11 of the
Bankruptcy Code (Bankr. D.R.I. Case No. 17-11392) on Aug. 10, 2017.
Scott Parker, manager, signed the petition.  At the time of the
filing, the Debtor disclosed that it had estimated assets of less
than $50,000 and liabilities of less than $500,000.

Judge Diane Finkle presides over the case.  

Peter M. Iascone & Associates, Ltd., represents the Debtor as legal
counsel.


417 RENTALS: Central Bank Wants to Prohibit Use of Cash Collateral
------------------------------------------------------------------
Central Bank of the Ozarks asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Western District of Missouri to prohibit 417 Rentals, LLC, from
using cash collateral.

Central Bank is a secured creditor in this proceeding and is the
holder of certain promissory notes, deeds of trust, assignments of
rents, guaranties, loan modification agreements, and other loan
agreements.

The debts to Central Bank are in default for:

     a. failure to pay the debts when due;

     b. transfer of certain properties in violation of the due on
        sale clauses in the deeds of trust;

     c. failure to maintain certain properties in good condition;
        and

     d. failure to comply with all existing applicable laws,
        ordinances, and regulations of governmental authorities.

The Debtor remains in possession of the real property that secures
Central Bank's debts and has failed and refused to turn over the
rents, issues, profits and proceeds thereof to Central Bank.

Under the promissory notes and deeds of trust, Central Bank has an
absolute, present assignment of the rents, issues and profits of
the real property that secures its debts and took all necessary
steps to perfect its rights under the assignment of rents clause
prior to the filing of the petition.  Consequently, the rents are
not property of the bankruptcy estate and do not constitute cash
collateral within the meaning of 11 U.S.C. Section 363(a).

Central Bank is an additional loss payee under the insurance
policies on the 2129 W. Wall Street and 833 S. Nettleton property
and is entitled to the insurance proceeds thereof.

To the extent the rents are cash collateral, the Debtor has not
obtained Central Bank's consent to the use thereof and no order
authorizing the use of cash collateral has been entered by this
Court as required by 11 U.S.C. Section 363(c)2).

Central Bank claims that:

     a. to the extent the rents are cash collateral, the Debtor
        has failed to provide Central Bank with adequate
        protection of its interest in the property which secures
        its debts;

     b. upon information and belief, the Debtor is using the rents

        without Central Bank's consent or authorization of the
        court and Central Bank will suffer irreparable harm unless

        the court enters an order prohibiting Debtor's use of the
        rents without adequate protection.

     c. upon information and belief, the Debtor has not segregated

        Central Bank's rents and Debtor should be held to account
        for any cash collateral in its possession as required by
        11 U.S.C. Section 363(c)(4); and

     d. to the extent Debtor has engaged in the unauthorized use
        of cash collateral since the filing of the petition,
        Central Bank is entitled to an administrative expense
        claim in the amount such unauthorized use.

47 HOPS: May Use Cash Collateral Until Dec. 5 Hearing
-----------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Frank L. Kurtz of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Eastern District of Washington has entered an agreed order
authorizing 47 Hops LLC's second interim use of cash collateral
through the date of the final hearing.

A hearing on the Debtor's final use of cash collateral will be held
on Dec. 5, 2017, at 9:00 a.m.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 4, 2017, the
Court previously denied the Debtor's motion for authorization to
use cash collateral.  According to the TCR, the Debtor sought court
authorization to use cash collateral of Columbia Bank to fund its
current operations.  The Debtor owes the Bank approximately $4.5
million for a line of credit, and has guaranteed an additional $2.3
million owed to the Bank by an affiliate.  The Bank's line of
credit is secured by a security interest in all of the Debtor's
inventory and accounts receivable.

Within 30 days of entry of this Sept. 22, 2017 court order, the
Debtor will provide the Bank, the Official Committee of Unsecured
Creditors, and the U.S. Trustee, with:

     (a) 1st and 2nd Quarter 2017 Financials, including a balance
         sheet, profit & loss statement, A/R & A/P Aging reports
         and inventory reports;

     (b) June, July and August 2017 Financials, including a
         balance sheet, profit & loss statement, A/R & A/P Aging
         reports and inventory reports; and

     (c) a complete accounting of the prepaid inventory listed in
         the Debtor's SOFA including inventory fully purchased by
         brewers/buyers; inventory held for brewers/buyers which
         has not been paid for; storage fees being received by the

         Debtor for holding prepaid inventory; and shipment dates
         for prepaid inventory.

As adequate protection for any cash collateral used by the Debtor,
the Bank is granted, pursuant to Sections 361(1), 361(2) and 363(e)
of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code, replacement security interests and
perfected liens upon all property acquired by the Debtor after the
Petition Date of the same type, kind, character and description as
the property in which the Bank held a lien or security interest on
the Petition Date, with the same validity and priority and to the
same extent that it had valid, enforceable liens and security
interests prior to the Petition Date in and to the: (a) all
proceeds from the disposition of all or any portion of the
prepetition collateral, (b) all property of the Debtor and the
Debtor's estate of the same kind, type and nature as the
prepetition collateral that is acquired after the Petition Date,
and (c) all proceeds of the foregoing.  

As further adequate protection, the Debtor grants to the Bank a
lien on (a) the Debtors' contracts with brewers for the sale of
hops, (b) the Debtor's pellet mill and line, and (c) the promissory
note owed by Doug MacKinnon to the Debtor.  The Additional Lien
will secure only the amount of the diminution in the value of the
Bank's collateral, if any, as compared to the value as of the
Petition Date that occurs as a result of the Debtor's use of cash
collateral.

An examiner will be appointed pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Section
1104(c).  The examiner is directed to review the Debtor’s books,
records and record-keeping processes, and, with respect to the time
period from Jan. 1, 2015, to the present, report to the Bank upon
(i) the sources and uses of revenue generated by the Debtor,
including any direct or indirect transfers of such revenue to and
transactions with the Debtor's affiliates; (ii) the sources and
uses of funds borrowed or loaned by the Debtor, including funds
loaned directly or indirectly to the Debtor's affiliates, and (iii)
the amount, ownership and sources of the Debtor's inventory
including the Debtor's prepaid inventory to determine whether all
or any portion of the prepaid inventory listed in the Debtor's SOFA
constitutes property of the estate and prepetition collateral of
the Bank.  The examiner, on his or her own motion, may move to
request expansion of the examiner's duties.

7 BAY CORP: Discloses M. Kairalla's Claims in Latest Filing
-----------------------------------------------------------
7 Bay Corp. filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District
of Massachusetts a fifth amended disclosure statement in support of
its fourth amended plan of liquidation, dated Sept. 27, 2017.

This latest disclosure statement adds a description of creditor
Mina Kairalla's claim. Kairalla's counsel provided the following
description of the creditor's claim:

Kairalla claims that on or about March 15, 2013, he entered into a
Purchase and Sale Agreement with the debtor whereby he agreed to
buy and the debtor sell a unit of 1800 square feet, more or less,
for $300,000. Kairalla paid the debtor $300,000, but certain
alleged conditions precedent never occurred, and the debtor claims
that it unilaterally cancelled the contract and refunded $100,000
of the $300,000, which Kairalla disputes. It is undisputed that
Kairalla has a claim of at least $200,000. The dispute is the
subject of a pending Adversary Proceeding. The debtor claims that
the contract was cancelled, or that it is executory and can be
rejected in the plan, which it intends to do. Kairalla contends
that since he paid the full agreed upon consideration, the contract
is not executory within the meaning of the classic Countryman
definition of "executory." A trial on the matter is scheduled for
the end of November. If the court rejects the debtor's position
altogether, the debtor will be required to convey a unit of 1800
square feet more or less, in accordance with the contract. If the
court accepts the debtor's position altogether, then Mr. Kairalla
will have a claim of at least $200,000. If the court finds that the
contract is executory and allows the debtor to reject it, Mr.
Kairalla will be entitled to rejection damages within the meaning
of section 365 and lien in the amount of the damages pursuant to
section 365(j). The likely result probably lies somewhere in the
middle of the two positions.

ABC DENTISTRY: Rohi Qui Tam Claimants to Recoup 0-9% Under New Plan
-------------------------------------------------------------------
ABC Dentistry, P.A., et al., filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the Southern District of Texas a second amended disclosure
statement in support of the Debtors' joint Chapter 11 plan of
reorganization.

This version of the plan now has nine classes, adding the Rohi Qui
Tam Claims Claims in Class 7 and the State of Texas OIG Claims in
Class 8.

The Plan Proponents will seek to confirm a Plan that incorporates
the Rohi Settlement and the State Release Agreement. The Rohi
Settlement provides that the Holders of the Rohi Personal Claims
and the Rohi Qui Tam Claims will receive the Rohi Settlement
Payment in full satisfaction of the Rohi Personal Claims and the
Rohi Qui Tam Claims and that the State of Texas will receive the
State of Texas OIG Settlement Payment in full satisfaction of the
State of Texas OIG Claims.

Class 7 under the latest plan consists of Rohi Qui Tam Claims. The
Class 7 Claims are impaired. In full satisfaction of all the Rohi
Qui Tam Claims, Rohi will receive the Rohi Portion and the State of
Texas will receive the State of Texas Portion. Rohi and the State
of Texas agree that the Bankruptcy Court will determine, under
applicable non- Title 11 law, the portion of the Rohi Settlement
Payment payable to Rohi and the portion of the Rohi Settlement
Payment payable to the State of Texas. Rohi and the State of Texas
hereby waive any right to appeal the Bankruptcy Court’s division
of the Rohi Settlement Payment. Projected recovery for this class
is 0-9%.

Class 8 consists of the State of Texas OIG Claims. The State of
Texas is the Holder of the State of Texas OIG Claims. The Class 8
Claims are unimpaired. In full satisfaction of all the State of
Texas OIG Claims, the State of Texas shall receive the State of
Texas OIG Settlement Payment. On account of the State of Texas OIG
Settlement Payment, the State of Texas will receive 7.82 % of the
Initial Plan Payment and a minimum of 7.82% of the Quarterly
Payments. After the Initial Plan Payment is made, the unpaid
portion of the State of Texas OIG Settlement Payment will accrue
interest at a flat rate of 0.5% per annum until paid, and be paid
in full by Dec. 31, 2022. Projected recovery for this class is
100%.

ARAMARK SERVICES: Moody's Affirms Ba2 CFR; Outlook Changed to Neg.
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed Aramark Services, Inc.'s
Corporate Family rating ("CFR") at Ba2, Probability of Default
rating ("PDR") at Ba2-PD, senior secured at Ba1 and senior
unsecured at Ba3. The SGL-1 speculative grade liquidity rating is
unchanged. The ratings outlook was revised to negative from
stable.

The Aramark announced it will acquire uniform services provider
Ameripride Services, Inc. ("Ameripride") for $1.0 billion and group
purchasing organization ("GPO") Avendra Ltd. ("Avendra") for $1.35
billion. The purchase prices and transaction-related fees and
expenses will be financed with over $2.35 billion of new debt.
Aramark intends to issue the debt on or before the date of closing
the acquisitions, which Aramark expects will take place sometime in
late calendar 2017.

RATING RATIONALE

"Although the two announced acquisitions are strategic and will
benefit Aramark's competitive position, the almost 50% increase in
debt outstanding from the all-debt acquisition financing drives
financial leverage to above 5 times and is credit negative," said
Edmond DeForest, Moody's Vice President and Senior Credit Officer.
DeForest continued: "The revision of the outlook to negative
reflects the risk that financial metrics could remain weak for an
extended period if integration, cost benefit and debt repayment
goals are not met."

The acquisition of Ameripride will solidify Aramark's number two
uniform services market position behind industry leader Cintas
Corporation (indirect parent of Cintas Corporation No. 2, A3
stable) while bolstering Aramark's position in certain markets such
as Canada. The Avendra acquisition will roughly double the
company's GPO business and lead to significant purchasing synergies
over time. Increasing the scale of its GPO business, will mitigate
the size-driven cost advantages of its significantly larger
competitors such as Compass Group Plc (A3 stable) when competing
for new contracts.

Aramark's Ba2 CFR reflects Moody's expectations for the
all-debt-financed acquisitions to push debt to EBITDA to above 5
times as of June 30, 2017, pro forma for an anticipated $2.35
billion of acquisition-related debt and EBITDA of $70 million from
Ameripride and $80 million from Avendra. However, Moody's
anticipates debt to EBITDA will return to below 4.5 times during
fiscal 2019 (ends September). Moody's expects Aramark will direct a
large portion of its $300 million of anticipated free cash flow
toward debt repayment. In addition, Moody's anticipates that EBITDA
margins will improve as Aramark recognizes anticipated financial
benefits of the acquisitions. These benefits include (i) cost
reductions from the elimination of duplicate functions (ii) greater
efficiency in markets where the Aramark and Ameripride had
substantial route and customer overlap and (iii) substantially
reduced supply costs through the increase in the scale and scope of
its captive GPO with the addition of Avendra's customers to its
purchasing base.

Aramark remains slow-growing and thinly profitable, with only, low
single digit revenue growth (on a constant currency basis)
anticipated and slowly improving profitability, with EBITA margins
expected around 6.5% in 2018 before any benefits of the
acquisitions are achieved. Moody's considers Aramark's business
stable and predictable, with long term contracts and fixed asset
investments providing high revenue visibility and meaningful
competitive barriers.

All financial metrics cited reflect Moody's standard analytical
adjustments.

The Ba1 senior secured and Ba3 senior unsecured ratings reflect the
Ba2-PD PDR and loss given default assessments of LGD3 for the
senior secured, reflecting their priority position in the debt
capital structure, and LGD5 for the senior unsecured, reflecting
their subordinated position in the debt capital structure. The
ratings also reflect an expectation for the debt to be raised to
fund the acquisitions to be a balance of secured and unsecured
sources. If the preponderance of new debt raised is secured, it
could lead to a downgrade of the senior unsecured ratings to B1
from Ba3.

The SGL-1 Speculative Grade Liquidity rating ("SGL") reflects
Moody's assessment of very good liquidity from about $300 million
of anticipated free cash flow, cash balances expected to be at
least $100 million and significant availability under revolving
credit and receivables securitizations facilities, which Moody's
anticipates will be used seasonally. If the acquisitions are
financed in a manner that reduces liquidity from, among other
things, diminished cash or cash flow, less revolver availability or
more limited cushions under financial covenants applicable to the
revolver and certain term loans, the SGL rating could be lowered to
SGL-2 from SGL-1.

The revision of the ratings outlook to negative from stable
reflects Moody's concerns that difficultly or slowness in achieving
the anticipated financial benefits of the acquisitions or a shift
in financial policies away from an emphasis on debt reduction could
lead to a prolonged period of weak financial metrics. The outlook
could be revised to stable from negative if Moody's expects some
revenue growth, EBITA margins above 6.5% and debt to EBITDA
approaching 4 times.

Given the negative ratings outlook, an upgrade in the near term is
not likely, However, the ratings could be upgraded if Moody's
expects Aramark will sustain: 1) debt to EBITDA below 3.5 times; 2)
improved free cash flow; and 3) a commitment to conservative
financial policies.

The ratings could be downgraded if Moody's expects: 1) revenue
growth to slow; 2) EBITA margins to remain below 6%; or 3) debt to
EBITDA to be maintained around 4.5 times.

Moody's took the following rating actions and made the following
outlook change:

Issuer: Aramark Services, Inc.

Affirmations:

-- Corporate Family Rating at Ba2

-- Probability of Default Rating, at Ba2-PD

-- Senior Secured, at Ba1 (LGD3)

-- Senior Unsecured, at Ba3 (LGD5)

Outlook:

-- Outlook, revised to Negative from Stable

Issuer: ARAMARK Canada Ltd.

Affirmations:

-- Senior Secured, at Ba1 (LGD3)

Outlook:

-- Outlook, revised to Negative from Stable

Issuer: Aramark International Finance Sarl

Affirmations:

-- Senior Unsecured, at Ba3 (LGD5)

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Business and
Consumer Service Industry published in October 2016.

Aramark is a provider of food and related services to a broad range
of institutions and is the second largest provider of uniform and
career apparel in the United States. Moody's expects fiscal 2018
(ending September) revenue (without the Ameriprise and Avendra
acquisitions) to exceed $15 billion.

Motions to transfer venue are to be decided based on "the situation
which existed when suit was instituted." "Otherwise, given the
constantly evolving commercial landscape, the Court is likely to
face a new transfer request every time a business or product line
is relocated." When evaluating Avaya's Motion to Transfer Venue,
the Court, therefore, did not consider events that have transpired
after the suit was filed. Avaya's Motion to Supplement Appendix is
denied.

At any rate, Avaya's supplement is not dispositive. Even if the
Court had considered it, Avaya would still fall short of meeting
its burden to show good cause for the transfer.

In its motion to transfer venue, Avaya fails to show that the
Northern District of California is a more convenient forum for
witnesses. Although Blackberry Corp. and Avaya both have their
headquarters in the Northern District of California, "it is the
convenience of the nonparty witnesses that is accorded the greatest
weight." The record shows that more key nonparty witnesses,
including several inventors of the patents-at-issue, are located in
or closer to this district. This factor does not weigh in favor of
transfer.

Because courts, in evaluating motions to transfer, can only
consider facts as they existed when the suit was filed, Avaya's
Motion to Supplement Appendix is denied. Because the analysis of
the private and public interest factors demonstrate that Avaya has
fallen short of meeting its burden, its Motion to Transfer Venue to
the Northern District of California is also denied.

BAILEY'S EXPRESS: Wants to Use Up to $114K in Cash Until Oct. 28
----------------------------------------------------------------
Ann M. Nevins of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Connecticut has entered a fourth interim order authorizing Bailey's
Express, Inc., to use up to $113,821 of cash collateral of Bankwell
Bank until Oct. 28, 2017, at 5:00 p.m.

A further hearing on the Debtor's use of cash collateral will be
held on Oct. 18, 2017, at 10:00 a.m.

The Debtor is authorized to use an amount of cash collateral until
the termination date not to exceed $113,821 solely to fund the
types and corresponding amounts of itemized expenditures contained
in the budget.  For each weekly period set forth in the Budget, the
Debtor's actual cash disbursements for the period will not exceed
the line item amount for category as set forth in the Budget,
provided, however, that notwithstanding the foregoing, (i)
expenditures of the Debtor under any line item of the Budget for
any period may exceed the expenditure amount budgeted for the line
item by 20%, so long as aggregate total expenditures during the
term of this order do not exceed the total amount budgeted for the
period, and (ii) any line item expenditures budgeted during any
given week, but not actually paid or expended during the week, may
be paid during the following week.  In no event will aggregate
total expenditures by the Debtor through the Termination Date
exceed the Total Authorized Expenditure Amount, provided, however,
that through the Termination Date, Bankwell, SAIA, and the Debtor
may, in their sole discretion, agree to increase cash disbursements
and operating expenditures in the Budget, and upon written
agreement by Bankwell and SAIA to so modify the Budget, the Debtor
will be authorized to use cash collateral in the amount without the
need for any further order of the Court.  It is understood that
Bankwell and SAIA may assume that the Debtor will comply with this
requirement and Bankwell and SAIA will have no duty to monitor
compliance.

As adequate protection for any cash collateral expended by the
Debtor pursuant to this Order, Bankwell is granted a first lien to
secure an amount of Bankwell's prepetition claims equal to (i) the
amount of cash collateral actually expended by the Debtor and (ii)
an amount equaling the aggregate decline in the value of the
Bankwell prepetition collateral (whether as a result of physical
deterioration, consumption, use, shrinkage, decline in market value
or otherwise).  The Replacement Liens will be subject only to
non-avoidable, valid, enforceable and perfected liens and security
interests in the assets of Debtor, as prepetition Debtor, that
existed on the Petition Date and that are not subject to avoidance
pursuant to the U.S. Bankruptcy Code, in favor of third parties,
that are superior in priority, after giving effect to any existing
subordination or intercreditor arrangements, to the Bankwell
Prepetition Liens.  The Replacement Liens will attach to personal
property and assets of the Debtor, of any kind or nature
whatsoever, whether now owned or hereafter acquired by any Debtor,
and all proceeds, rents or profits thereof.

Bankwell's Replacement Liens will at all times be senior to the
rights of the Debtor and any successor trustee or estate
representative in this case or any subsequent case or proceedings
under the Bankruptcy Code.  Any security interest or lien upon the
DIP Collateral which is avoided or otherwise preserved for the
benefit of any Debtor's estate under Section 551 or any other
provision of the Bankruptcy Code will be subordinate to the
security interests in and Replacement Liens upon the DIP Collateral
granted to Bankwell.

In addition to the Replacement Lien, Bankwell will have a priority
claim in an amount equal to the amount of cash collateral actually
expended by Debtor, which claim will have the highest
administrative priority under Sections 503(b), 507(a)(1) and 507(b)
of the Bankruptcy Code, and the claim will have priority over, and
be senior to, all other administrative claims.

As adequate protection for any cash collateral expended by the
Debtor, SAIA is granted, pursuant to Sections 361(1) and 363(e) of
the Bankruptcy Code, a lien, subordinate to the security interests
held by Bankwell, on the DIP Collateral, but only to the extent
that SAIA successfully establishes that SAIA is entitled to impose
an interline trust on cash collected by the Debtor.

If the Debtor at any time seeks any third-party financing, and in
connection with financing requests that the Court grant or impose,
under Section 364 of the Bankruptcy Code or otherwise, liens with a
priority equal to or superior to the Bankwell Prepetition Liens or
the Replacement Liens, the Debtor will be required to use the first
available proceeds of any financing to repay Bankwell the full
amount of any cash collateral expended pursuant to the court order.

BRIAN J. BENNER: Summary Ruling in Referral Fee Suit Partly Upheld
------------------------------------------------------------------
In the appeals cases captioned THOMAS W. ELKINS,
Plaintiff/Counter-Defendant-Appellant, v. NANCY BENNER,
Defendant/Counter-Plaintiff-Appellee. THOMAS W. ELKINS,
Plaintiff/Counter-Defendant-Appellant, v. NANCY BENNER,
Defendant/Counter-Plaintiff-Appellee, and C. WILLIAM GARRATT,
Appellant, Nos. 331701, 332664, 333114 (Mich. App.), plaintiff
appeals as of right several orders entered by the trial court in
this action to hold defendant liable for an attorney referral fee
in the amount of $165,000 that plaintiff alleges is owed by
defendant's former husband, Brian Benner, a now disbarred attorney.


In Docket No. 331701, plaintiff appeals the trial court's order
granting defendant's motion for summary disposition and denying
plaintiff's motion to amend his complaint. In Docket Nos. 332664
and 333114, plaintiff appeals the trial court's orders granting
defendant's motion for sanctions based on the trial court's
determination that plaintiff's complaint was frivolous, and
awarding defendant attorney fees of $18,344 and costs of $980.10.
Plaintiff also appeals the trial court's order denying plaintiff's
motion for sanctions in connection with defendant's dismissed
counterclaim for slander of title.

The Michigan Court of Appeals affirms in part and reverses in part
in Docket No. 331701, vacate the orders appealed in Docket Nos.
332664 and 333114, and remand for further proceedings.

Plaintiff, an attorney, alleges that defendant's former husband,
Brian Benner, failed to pay a referral fee for a client that
plaintiff referred to Benner. Plaintiff filed this lawsuit seeking
to hold defendant liable for the referral fee under a theory that
Benner misappropriated client funds, including funds for the
attorney referral fee that Benner owed plaintiff, and that
defendant acted in concert with Benner to defraud plaintiff and
other creditors by transferring the misappropriated property to
defendant, in part through a sham divorce and property settlement,
and that defendant was unjustly enriched by Benner's misdeeds. In
Count I of his complaint, plaintiff alleged that defendant was
liable for the attorney referral fee that Benner agreed to pay
because she acted as Benner's instrument or alter ego to commit
fraud upon plaintiff. Plaintiff asked the court to impose a
constructive trust on a marital home owned by Benner and defendant,
which had been placed solely in defendant's name. In Count II,
plaintiff alleged that Benner converted the client funds from which
plaintiff was entitled to collect the attorney referral fee and
that defendant was liable because she aided or abetted Benner in
the conversion of plaintiff's property.

Count I of plaintiff's complaint alleged that defendant acted as
Benner's alter ego to misappropriate client funds and shield those
funds from creditors, and therefore, the defendant could be held
personally liable for the attorney referral fee that Benner agreed
to pay plaintiff. The trial court agreed with defendant that
plaintiff failed to state a "claim for alter ego because there's no
corporate entity involved." The court also refused to allow
plaintiff to amend his complaint to further clarify this claim
because "there is no such thing as alter ego, and you don't plead
any specificity as to that anyways, as to the fraud you allege."
The Court of Appeals agrees with the trial court that there is no
basis for applying the alter-ego rule to allow the imposition of
liability on defendant for Benner's alleged misdeeds.

The trial court denied plaintiff's motion to amend his complaint to
add a claim under the Uniform Fraudulent Transfer Act. Plaintiff's
proposed amended complaint alleged that defendant and Benner
conspired to use their divorce property settlement to facilitate
the transfer of property from Benner to defendant to shield the
property from Benner's creditors, including plaintiff. The trial
court erred in ruling that plaintiff was precluded from challenging
the property settlement as an improper transfer of marital assets
under the UFTA because such a challenge amounted to an improper
collateral attack on the divorce judgment. Accordingly, the Appeals
Court reverses the trial court's order denying plaintiff's motion
to amend his complaint to add a claim under the UFTA.

In Docket Nos. 332664 and 333114, plaintiff challenges the trial
court's orders awarding defendant sanctions, and denying
plaintiff's motion for sanctions in connection with the dismissal
of defendant's counterclaim.

In light of the Appeals Court's decisions to reverse both the trial
court's dismissal of plaintiff's conversion claim and its denial of
plaintiff's motion to amend his complaint to add a claim under the
UFTA, the Appeals Court vacates the trial court's award of
sanctions to defendant because those claims cannot be considered
frivolous, and defendant is no longer a prevailing party entitled
to sanctions.

Thus, the Appeals Court affirms in part and reverses in part the
trial court's order granting defendant's motion for summary
disposition and denying plaintiff's motion to amend her complaint,
vacates the trial court's orders granting defendant's motion for
sanctions and denying plaintiff's motion for sanctions, and remands
for further proceedings consistent with this opinion. The Court
does not retain jurisdiction.

CAPROCK OIL: Full Payment for Unsecureds Under Proposed Plan
------------------------------------------------------------
CapRock Oil Tools, Inc. filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Southern District of Texas a disclosure statement for its plan
of reorganization, dated Oct. 6, 2017.

The Plan contemplates that the Debtor will use of all post-petition
and post-Confirmation income/revenue of the Debtor and Reorganized
Debtor, proceeds from the collection of the Debtor's accounts
receivables, proceeds from recovery of Voidable Transfers and New
Value Contribution(s) to pay, in full, holders of Allowed Claims in
the following classes:

   (a) Tax Claims to be paid in full within the later of 60 days of
the Effective Date or such Tax Claims become Allowed Claims;

   (b) Secured Claims to be paid, at the holder's option in
accordance with the applicable pre-petition loan agreement(s), or
as may be agreed between the holder of the Secured Claim and the
Debtor;

   (c) Non-Insider Unsecured Claims to be paid within one 180 days
of the Effective Date of the Plan, or the date such claims become
Allowed Claims, whichever is later; and

   (d) Insider Unsecured Claims to be paid within one hundred 180
days after the date Allowed Non-Insider Unsecured Claims have been
satisfied.

The Plan further provides that the Hall Stock Redemption Claim is
to be subordinated and Equity Interests are to be cancelled with no
distribution on account of same. In addition, the Reorganized
Debtor will also retain all Estate property, including all property
of the Debtor, to the extent same are assets of the Debtor's
bankruptcy estate, as well as all Avoidance Actions. Finally, all
of the equity in the Reorganized Debtor will be owned by the party
or parties providing the New Value Contribution. The New Value
Contribution, in turn, will be used to fund amounts due under the
Plan that the Reorganized Debtor is unable to timely fund and is
currently anticipated to approximate no less than $1,986,653.31 to
be funded (it is currently anticipated by the Debtor's sole
shareholder, Glenn Gault) in quarterly installments of
approximately $400,000-500,000 by the party or parties providing
the New Value Contribution.

CASTEX ENERGY: Files for Chapter 11 with Debt-to-Equity Plan
------------------------------------------------------------
Castex Energy Partners, L.P., and its affiliates sought Chapter 11
protection after reaching terms of a consensual restructuring that
will convert a substantial portion of the prepetition lenders' debt
to equity.

The Debtors have arranged DIP financing from their prepetition
lenders in the form of a revolving DIP Facility in the aggregate
principal amount of up to $15 million.

The DIP Facility provides the Castex Debtors with the liquidity
they need to fund their operations and the costs of the Chapter 11
cases through emergence, which is anticipated to occur in the first
quarter of 2018.

Affiliated debtors who simultaneously sought Chapter 11 protection
are Castex Offshore, Inc. (COI), Castex Energy 2005, L.P. (Castex
2005), Castex Energy II, LLC (CELL II), and and Castex Energy IV,
LLC (CELL IV).

The Castex Debtors, affiliates of one another, (i) engage in the
exploration, development, production and acquisition of oil and
natural gas properties located along the southern coasts of
Louisiana and Texas and onshore Louisiana (CEP), (ii) hold legal
title and act as designated operator of federal offshore leases
(COI), (iii) own the Castex E&P Companies, as defined below (Castex
2005), and (iv) act as general and small interest limited partners
of certain of the Castex Debtors (CELL II and CELL IV).

The Debtors have no employees.  Castex Energy, Inc. (CEI), which is
not a debtor in the Chapter 11 cases, provides full scale
management services for the Debtors pursuant to a Shared Services
Agreement.

                        Road to Bankruptcy

Aaron Killian, Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of the
Debtors, explains in a court filing that the decline in oil and gas
prices has placed substantial pressure on oil and gas companies and
caused a substantial decrease in exploration, drilling, and new
production. The decrease in the price of oil and natural gas, along
with the natural decline in production and limited new drilling
activity resulted in a significant reduction in the Castex Debtors'
revenue and EBITDA, which declined approximately 60% and 70%,
respectively, from FY 2014 to FY 2016.

In 2014, the Castex E&P Companies initiated an aggressive
exploration and development program and invested $259 million (net
of asset sales) adding approximately 60 Bcfe of proved reserves.
Much of the investment during this period focused on high cost,
long-lead time investments in offshore infrastructure in
anticipation of future developmental drilling.

From July 2014 to April 2016, natural gas prices fell from
$4.40/MMbtu to less than $2.00/MMbtu; CEP was mildly hedged and was
exposed to this drop.  CEP also suffered from its partner Apache's
gross negligence in the construction of a facility and multiple
redrills of a well in one of its most profitable fields.

                    Prepetition Capital Structure

The Castex Debtors' funded debt obligation is $390 million in
secured debt under a Credit Agreement, dated as of July 17, 2013,
by and among Castex 2005, CEP, COI, the several banks and other
financial institutions or entities from time to time parties
thereto (collectively, the "Prepetition Lenders"), Capital One Bank
(USA) National Association, as administrative agent and certain
other parties.  The debt is secured by a pledge on all of the
partnership units of CEP, all of CEP's interest in Castex
Lafourche, LP, mortgages on virtually all of the Onshore and
Offshore Leases, and a pledge of the proceeds from the Apache
Litigation.

The Castex Debtors have no other funded debt.

In June 2012, Castex 2005 raised additional capital through the
issuance of preferred equity units.  The Partnership issued 612
preferred units, at $125,000 per preferred unit.  The gross
proceeds were $76,500,000, less fees and expenses.

The Castex Debtors estimate that, as of the Petition Date, COI owes
a total of approximately $3.0 million on account of goods and
services provided to COI from third parties as operator of the
Offshore Leases (the "COI Operating Costs").

In the ordinary course of business, the Castex Debtors are parties
to a number of lawsuits, legal proceedings, collection proceedings,
and claims arising out of their business operations.  The lawsuits
include a suit filed by Apache Corporation against CEI and the
Castex Debtors in August 2015 alleging that Apache is owed on
unpaid joint interest billings relating to the parties' joint
ownership of certain oil and gas properties.  The suit is styled as
Apache Corporation v. Castex Offshore, Inc., et al, Cause No.
2015-48580; 133rd Judicial District Court, Harris County, Texas.
CEI and the Castex Debtors filed counterclaims against Apache.

Certain of these counterclaims center upon two projects undertaken
by Apache, as operator: (1) the construction of the Belle Isle
natural gas processing facility and associated pipelines (the
"Belle Isle Facility"), and (2) the drilling and completion of the
Potomac #3 Well.  CEP has asserted that, due to Apache's gross
negligence and willful misconduct, the Belle Isle Facility cost
over $148 million, more than $100 million over the approved
budget.

Due to Apache's gross negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, and
fraud, CEP, as a 25% owner, paid nearly $23 million more than it
should have for the Belle Isle Facility. CEP also asserts that
Apache was grossly negligent in the drilling, sidetracking, and
completion of the Potomac #3 Well (which was owned 50% each by
Apache and Castex), causing the total well cost to exceed $51
million, more than double its original budget. Further, CEP alleges
that Apache was grossly negligent in failing to cement multiple
sidetrack attempts in the well, allowing cross flow of water into
the reservoir.  As a result, the well was a total loss, ceasing
production shortly after completion and causing loss of reserves
from the target reservoirs. Inclusive of remedial costs for the
well and lost reserves, CEP suffered millions of dollars in damages
as a result of Apache's gross negligence on the Potomac #3 Well.

Moreover, CEI alleges that CELL I, CEP, Castex 2005, and certain of
the Castex Debtors owe the CEI Cure Claim, which is comprised of
(i) unpaid management fees in the approximate amount of $3.99
million and (ii) unpaid reimbursements for professional fees paid
by CEI in the approximate amount of $2.16 million.

                    Prepetition Marketing Process

Over the last two years, management and the Prepetition Lenders
have attempted to negotiate multiple out-of-court
strategies/restructuring options, none of which has proved
workable.

In September 2016, CEP proposed a plan (the "DrillCo Plan"), with
the approval of Castex 2005, under which it would sell 80% of its
prospect inventory to new investors for cash and an override.
Because the DrillCo Plan proposed to extend the Maturity Date under
the Prepetition Credit Agreement, implementation required the
consent of all Prepetition Lenders.  The DrillCo Plan did not
generate the unanimous support of the Prepetition Lenders, and,
accordingly, the parties could not consummate the DrillCo Plan.

In February 2017, in connection with further amendments to the
Prepetition Credit Agreement, the Castex Debtors agreed to conduct
a marketing process for the CEP assets.  In March and April 2017,
Evercore conducted the Marketing Process in accordance with a bid
protocol negotiated with the predecessor Prepetition Agent. The
Marketing Process was well attended (55 parties contacted, 17
executed non-disclosure agreements executed, and 13 management
presentations) with an audience that incorporated onshore and
offshore industry players, financial firms, and buyers of debt.

Non-binding bids for certain packages of onshore assets were
received but no proposals were submitted for the Castex Debtors'
offshore assets.  Through presentations from, and on-going
discussions between Evercore and the Prepetition Lenders' advisors,
the Prepetition Lenders were consistently and routinely informed of
the Marketing Process.  None of the bids received was actionable.

Following the outcome of the Marketing Process, the Castex Debtors
offered to recommence work on a new version of the DrillCo Plan and
to seek financing to buy out any objecting Prepetition Lenders.
The Castex Debtors also offered their continued cooperation and to
raise capital to support an in-court solution.

On May 1, 2017, the Castex Debtors were informed that an
out-of-court solution, including the DrillCo Plan, would not be
supported by the requisite Prepetition Lenders in light of the
results of the Marketing Process.  As a result, the Castex Debtors
and the Prepetition Lenders, with the assistance of their
respective advisors, focused on negotiating a consensual
transaction to address the Castex Debtors' significant liquidity
challenges as well as comprehensively restructure the Castex
Debtors' obligations via an in-court process.  These discussions
eventually led to the RSA between the Castex Debtors, the
Prepetition Lenders and CEI.

Over the past several months, the Castex Debtors and the
Prepetition Lenders have engaged in good faith, arm's length
negotiations regarding a series of transactions to delever the
Castex Debtors' balance sheets and allow the Castex Debtors to
retain sufficient liquidity to continue to operate their businesses
going forward. In the course of these negotiations, CEI, the Castex
Debtors, and the Prepetition Lenders exchanged numerous
restructuring proposals contemplating in-court transactions.

The Castex Debtors ultimately determined that the transactions
reflected in the Restructuring Support Agreement and Term Sheet
were the best way to maximize value as part of the Castex Debtors'
overall restructuring efforts.  Accordingly, on Oct. 16, 2017, the
Castex Debtors obtained all required approvals for the execution of
the RSA and the filing of their respective chapter 11 petitions and
proceeded to execute the RSA and commence the Chapter 11 Cases.

                           Terms of RSA

After nearly two years of attempts to deal with the problematic
pricing environment and resultant challenged capital structure, and
after the sale process that yielded no solution, the Debtors,
certain of the prepetition lenders holding approximately 86% in
principal amount of claims under the Prepetition Credit Agreement,
CELL I and CEI agreed to the consensual restructuring transaction
set forth in the Restructuring Support Agreement dated as of
October 16, 2017 (the "RSA") that incorporates a term sheet
outlining the key provisions of a plan of reorganization for the
Castex Debtors.

Key components of the Plan include:

    (i) conversion of a substantial portion of the Prepetition
        Lenders' debt to equity through the agreed upon
        Transaction Structure,

   (ii) an agreement among the Debtors, the Prepetition Lenders,
        and CEI concerning the Shared Services Agreement and
        assumption of an amended version thereof,

  (iii) payment of undisputed vendor claims,

   (iv) assumption of JOAs, oil and gas leases (to the extent
        assumable) and various contracts, and

    (v) modification of the exit capital structure to allow
        for (a) repayment of exit facility debt and (b)
        maintenance of development potential with respect to
        the assets of the reorganized companies.

Milestones provided in the RSA include:

    (a) The Castex Parties shall commence the Chapter 11 Cases
        by filing bankruptcy petitions with the Bankruptcy Court
        on or before October 16, 2017;

    (b) on or before the date that is 5 calendar days from the
        Petition Date, the Bankruptcy Court shall have entered
        the Interim DIP Order;

    (c) on or before the date that is 20 calendar days from the
        Petition Date, the Castex Parties shall file with the
        Bankruptcy Court the Plan, the Disclosure Statement, and
        the Solicitation Procedures Motion;

    (d) on or before the date that is 30 calendar days from
        entry of the Interim DIP Order, the Bankruptcy Court
        shall have entered the Final DIP Order;

    (e) on or before the date that is 65 calendar days from
        the Petition Date, the Bankruptcy Court will have entered
        the Solicitation Procedures Order;

    (f) on or before the date that is 145 calendar days from the
        Petition Date, the Bankruptcy Court shall have entered
        the Confirmation Order; and

    (g) on or before the date that is 10 calendar days from entry
        of the Confirmation Order by the Bankruptcy Court, the
        effective date of the Plan shall have occurred and the
        Castex Parties will have consummated the Restructuring
        Transactions contemplated by the Plan.

RATINGS RATIONALE

The ratings reflect the low cost position of CONSOL Mining's mines,
good liquidity and solid contracted position with a stable customer
base. The ratings further reflect Moody's expectation of improved
performance in 2017 relative to 2016, on the back of improved
realizations, improved productivity, and resolution of one-time
events such as the Harvey mine idling and pension settlement cost
in 2016. The ratings acknowledge Moody's expectation that Debt/
EBITDA, as adjusted, would be maintained at around 3.0x.

That said, the ratings reflect the risks stemming from the ongoing
secular decline of the US thermal coal industry, Moody's
expectation of significant natural gas capacity coming online in
the next three years, and the inherently volatile metallurgical
coal markets. Although Moody's acknowledge the company's efforts in
managing down its environmental and legacy obligations, the ratings
are constrained by the general risks inherent in mining, including
generally higher risks stemming from environmental and social
issues facing the coal mining industry.

The ratings further reflect Moody's expectation of a slightly
higher leverage relative to peers in a similar rating category
(e.g., Arch Coal, Inc. and Peabody Energy Corporation, both B1
stable), as well as operational concentration in one coal basin
(Northern Appalachia or NAPP). That said, the ratings are supported
by Moody's generally favorable view on the company's coal relative
to other coal basins, which includes its high BTU and low sulfur
content, first quartile cost position in NAPP, access to favorable
port logistics, and the flexibility to sell it into domestic and
international thermal and high-vol metallurgical coal markets. The
ratings also benefit from the well diversified customer base, with
roughly 80% of coal being sold to domestic utilities, with a focus
on the larger, environmentally controlled coal plants in Eastern
United States.

Moody's further acknowledge the substantial capital investments
made to enhance the productivity of this longwall mining complex
over the past several years, manageable capital requirements over
the next 2-3 years of $120 - $140 million per year, with the
flexibility to scale down to $75 million per year during
challenging market conditions. The ratings reflect Moody's
expectation of legacy liability servicing costs of $70- $80 million
per year.

The ratings reflect Moody's expectation of good liquidity,
including roughly $190 million in cash on hand at transaction
close, an undrawn $300 million revolver, and positive free cash
flows over the next twelve months.

The stable outlook reflects the company's solid contracted
position, Moody's stable outlook on the US coal industry, and
Moody's expectation of positive free cash flows.

The Ba3 and B3 ratings on first and second lien debt reflect their
relative position in the capital structure with respect to claim on
collateral, as well as Moody's expectation that recovery on secured
debt in the event of the bankruptcy could be negatively impacted by
legacy liabilities and environmental obligations.

The ratings could be upgraded if the rate of secular decline in the
US thermal coal industry were to slow or reverse, and if
metallurgical coal markets were to show more stability and
predictability. The ratings could also be upgraded in the event of
material growth in scale and diversity.

The ratings could be downgraded if Debt/EBITDA, as adjusted, were
to increase above 5x, if free cash flows were to turn negative, or
if liquidity were to deteriorate.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global Mining
Industry published in August 2014.

CONSOL Mining Corporation is a spin-off coal business from CONSOL
Energy Inc. The company has 90% economic ownership and operational
control of the Pennsylvania Mining Complex (PAMC, consisting of
three underground mines - Bailey, Enlow Fork, and Harvey - and
related infrastructure), 100% ownership of the CNX Marine Terminal,
and 100% ownership of approximately 1.6 billion tons of undeveloped
reserves.


CONSOL MINING: S&P Assigns 'B' Corp Credit Rating, Outlook Stable
-----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'B' corporate credit rating to
Canonsburg, Pa.-based CONSOL Mining Corp. The outlook is stable.

S&P said, "We also assigned our 'B+' issue-level rating to the
company's first-lien debt. The recovery rating on the debt is '2',
reflecting our expectation of substantial (70%-90%; rounded
estimate: 70%) recovery in the event of default.

"At the same time, we assigned our 'CCC+' issue-level rating to the
company's second-lien notes. The recovery rating on the debt is
'6', reflecting our expectation of negligible (0%-10%; rounded
estimate: 0%) recovery in the event of default."

U.S.-based coal producer CONSOL Mining Corp. (CMC) is planning to
obtain a $300 million first-lien revolving credit facility due
2021, a $100 million first-lien term loan A facility due 2021 and a
$400 million first-lien term loan B facility due 2022, and is
issuing $350 million in second-lien notes due 2025. CMC constitutes
the coal business of Consol Energy Inc. (Consol Energy) and is
expected to be spun-off as a separate entity in mid-November. The
company will use proceeds from the new debt to recapitalize CMC and
finance approximately a $470 million dividend to Consol Energy.

S&P said, "CMC's business risks reflect expectations of
profitability that would be among the very highest among its peers;
we are forecasting EBITDA margins exceeding 35%. In addition to the
company's low-cost longwall mining operations, CMC's reserve
profile in the Northern Appalachian basin provides the highest
quality coal, the average energy content approaches 13,000 Btu per
pound, along with access to key logistics infrastructure. Finally,
we incorporate the company's contracted nature of sales, with 80%
of 2018 production priced and committed, and a union-free work
force. These strengths are weighed primarily against the limited
growth prospects in the coal industry as it faces ongoing
competitive pressure from low-priced natural gas and other
substitutes.  We also consider the inherent challenges of coal
mining: operating in a cyclical industry with limited long-term
growth prospects, price volatility, weather-related disruptions,
capital-intensive operations, labor-related challenges, and
increasingly stringent environmental and safety regulations. In
CMC's case, these risks are exacerbated by operations concentrated
in one complex, in a basin with deeper reserves, which can be more
costly and complicated to mine. We also incorporate the risks that
high utilization rates can create on operations.

"The stable outlook is based on our assumption that while
metallurgical coal prices are above sustainable levels, they will
remain above $120/ton, and domestic demand will support flat levels
of production over the next year. Based on the new capital
structure and mandatory amortization requirements, we also expect
CMC will maintain adjusted debt leverage at the top of the 3x–4x
range in this time period.

"We could raise the rating if CMC, as a stand-alone company,
demonstrated a track record of operations in line with peers we
consider to have the best competitive positions in the sector. To a
great extent, this would include the company's ability to meet its
EBITDA margins expectations, set above 35% while leverage remains
below 4x.

"We could lower the rating if we expected adjusted debt leverage to
exceed 5x.  This would be associated with adjusted EBITDA below
$380 million for 2018, particularly if amortizations and
prepayments fall short of the roughly $85 million we are projecting
for the year.  We could also lower the rating, if the cushion under

statement in support of its plan of reorganization, dated Oct. 10,
2017.

Under the Plan, distributions to holders of General Unsecured

Unsecured Recovery Pool, which will be funded by Reorganized
CranGrow, specifically through the proceeds of the Reorganized
CranGrow Indebtedness in the amount of $200,000, and the allocation
of any remaining proceeds from the sale of the 2015 and 2016 crop
in the possession of the Debtor or Reorganized CranGrow, net of

success and growth.

EUGEN DIETL: Court Junks Creditor's Bid for Emergency Hearing
-------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Robert Kwan of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central
District of California issued an order denying Creditor Law Office
of Marilyn M. Smith's request for an emergency hearing, or a
hearing on shortened notice on its motion to convert to a Chapter 7
or appoint a Chapter 11 Trustee in the case of Debtor Eugen
Valentin Dietl.

Based on the circumstances described in the Motion, an emergency
hearing is not warranted under Local Bankruptcy Rule 9075-1(a),
Judge Kwant rules.  The judge says the motion is based solely on
speculation of Creditor's counsel that Debtor would seek dismissal
of the case without providing for payment of creditors based on
Debtor's counsel's pending motion to withdraw.

There is also no objective evidence to support counsel's assertion
that Debtor has dissipated, or will dissipate, funds in the
debtor-in-possession bank account, which is property of the
bankruptcy estate subject to the court's supervision, in violation
of the Bankruptcy Code. Any dismissal of the case would require an
order of this court, which would require review and an opportunity
for all parties entitled to notice, including Creditor, for notice
and hearing pursuant to Section 1112 of the Bankruptcy Code, 11
U.S.C.

A full-text copy of Judge Kwan's Order dated Oct. 11, 2017, is
available at https://is.gd/A6fmlo from Leagle.com.

FANNIE MAE & FREDDIE MAC: Perry Capital Seeks High Court Review
---------------------------------------------------------------
After years of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac shareholders being shooed
away by trial courts and circuit courts of appeal, Perry Capital,
LLC, asked the U.S. Supreme Court this week to review this legal
question:

    Whether 12 U.S.C. sec. 4617(f), which prohibits courts
    from issuing injunctions that "restrain or affect the
    exercise of powers or functions of" the Federal Housing
    Finance Agency ("FHFA") "as a conservator," bars judicial
    review of an action by FHFA and the Department of Treasury
    to seize for Treasury the net worth of Fannie Mae and
    Freddie Mac in perpetuity.

Perry tells the nine justices the answer is no.  Joined by fellow
GSE shareholder Arrowood, Perry goes on to conclude:

     "The D.C. Circuit's decision dangerously misconstrues FHFA's
conservatorship powers.  FHFA's conservatorship provisions are
neither new nor alien -- Congress took them verbatim from FIRREA,
importing the FDIC's decades of sound experience in resolving
troubled financial institutions, and the centuries of common-law
conservatorships on which the FDIC relied.  Nothing in the text or
purpose of HERA, decades of FDIC practice, or centuries of common
law even remotely condones the Net Worth Sweep's massive
expropriation -- a confiscation that leaves the Companies
functionally insolvent, saddled with Treasury's $189 billion
liquidation claim, and with no ability to escape a vampiric
relationship with the government.  Yet the decision below permits
any governmental conservator -- including the FDIC -- to confiscate
funds under its supervision without judicial review simply because
the conservator did so in the course of operating the ward.  That's
not a conservatorship; that's embezzlement."

Perry and Arrowood urge the Court to grant its petition and review
the D.C. Circuit's decision.  

Perry Capital is represented by Theodore B. Olson, Douglas R. Cox,
Matthew D. McGill and Christopher B. Leach at Gibson, Dunn &
Crutcher LLP in Washington, D.C., and Arrowood is represented by
Michael H. Barr and Richard M. Zuckerman at Dentons US LLP in New
York.

               About Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac

Federal National Mortgage Association (OTCQB: FNMA), commonly known
as Fannie Mae -- http://www.FannieMae.com/-- is a
government-sponsored enterprise (GSE) that was chartered by U.S.
Congress in 1938 to support liquidity, stability and affordability
in the secondary mortgage market, where existing mortgage-related
assets are purchased and sold.

A brother organization of Fannie Mae is the Federal Home Loan
Mortgage Corporation (FHLMC), better known as Freddie Mac.  Freddie
Mac (OTCBB: FMCC) -- http://www.FreddieMac.com/-- was established
by Congress in 1970 to provide liquidity, stability and
affordability to the nation's residential mortgage markets.
Freddie Mac supports communities across the nation by providing
mortgage capital to lenders.

During the time of the subprime mortgage crisis, on Sept. 6, 2008,
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were placed into conservatorship by the
U.S. Treasury.  The Treasury committed to invest up to $200 billion
in preferred stock and extend credit through 2009 to keep the GSEs
solvent and operating.  Both GSEs are still operating under the
conservatorship of the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA).

In exchange for future support and capital investments of up to
$100 billion in each GSE, each GSE agreed to issue to the Treasury
(i) $1 billion of senior preferred stock, with a 10% coupon,
without cost to the Treasury and (ii) common stock warrants
representing an ownership stake of 79.9%, at an exercise price of
one-thousandth of a U.S. cent ($0.00001) per share, and with a
warrant duration of 20 years.


FB COVENTRY: Wants To Use Cash Collateral Through Oct. 25
---------------------------------------------------------
FB Coventry, LLC, seeks permission from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the District of Rhode Island to use cash collateral of NextWave
Enterprises, LLC, Rewards Network Establishment Services, Inc.,
Vend Lease Company, and Sysco Boston, LLC, for an additional 16
days, from Oct. 9, 2017, through Oct. 25, 2017, and to provide
adequate protection to RN for the Debtor's use of cash collateral
and grant replacement liens to RN.

The Court entered a final order on June 7, 2017, authorizing use of
RN's cash collateral.  In addition, the Court entered an order on
July 10, 2017, authorizing the continued use of the RN's cash
collateral.  The court order authorized the Debtor's use of cash
collateral through Aug. 26, 2017, with certain bi-weekly adequate
protection payments to RN.  After hearing held on Sept. 6, 2017,
the Court entered an order on Sept. 8, 2017, authorizing the
continued use of the RN's cash collateral.

The court order authorized the Debtor's use of cash collateral
through Oct. 8, 2017, with certain bi-weekly adequate protection
payments to RN.  Without continued use of cash collateral after
Oct. 8, 2017, the Debtor will be unable to fund continued
operations and will have to close.  FB Coventry, LLC desires to
continue to operate and continue its negotiation to propose a plan.

          http://bankrupt.com/misc/rib17-10650-177.pdf

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 6, 2017, the
Court previously denied without prejudice the Debtor's motion for
permission to use cash collateral as the Debtor failed to attach a
budget for the period for which the continued use of cash
collateral is sought.

FEDERATION EMPLOYMENT: Files Chapter 11 Plan of Liquidation
-----------------------------------------------------------
Federation Employment and Guidance Service, Inc., doing business as
FEGS, filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District
of New York a disclosure statement describing its plan of
liquidation, dated Oct. 6, 2017.

The Plan provides a means by which the remaining portion of the
Debtor's real estate portfolio and other remaining assets will be
liquidated. The Plan further provides that the proceeds of such
liquidation, together with the proceeds of the prior sales of the
Debtor's Assets, will be distributed under Chapter 11 of the
Bankruptcy Code, and sets forth the treatment of all Claims against
the Debtor.

The Debtor successfully transitioned its Programs and clients to
other not for profit Providers early in the Case and has
consummated the sale of a portion of its Assets pursuant to orders
of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of
New York. The Plan proposes the private sale of substantially all
of the remaining real estate assets -- comprised largely of group
homes, cooperative apartments and community residence facilities
which continue to house many of the clients that received treatment
and care from FEGS -- to the Providers that took over the FEGS'
programs and continue to provide services to FEGS' former
residential clients.

The private sale not only will realize substantial value for
creditors but will serve to continue the charitable mission of FEGS
and ensure the continued residence and care of that fragile client
population. The Plan also provides for the private sale of the
Debtor's membership and sponsorship interests in four housing
corporations whose properties house physically and developmentally
disabled clients. That transaction too will not only realize
significant value but leave undisturbed existing residents.
Finally, the Plan provides a framework to liquidate any remaining
Assets, pursue any causes of action belonging to the Debtor and its
Estate and to ultimately distribute Net Proceeds to holders of
Allowed Claims.

Class 4 under the liquidation plan consists of the allowed
unsecured claims, which arose prior to the Petition Date,
including, without limitation, the New York State Office of Mental
Health Claims, the Office for People With Developmental
Disabilities Claims and the DOL Unsecured Claims. The holders of
Allowed Unsecured Claims will from time to time receive Pro Rata
distributions of Cash from the Net Proceeds. Notwithstanding the
preceding, to the extent the Settlement Agreement is approved by
the Bankruptcy Court through entry of the Confirmation Order, the
OMH Claim, the OPWDD Claim and the DOL Unsecured Claim will be
treated in accordance with the terms of the Settlement Agreement;
provided, however, such claims will be entitled to vote in the
amounts asserted therein or as otherwise agreed between the holders
of such Claim and the Debtor. Projected recovery for this class is
15% to 40%.

The Debtor will seek, in connection with the entry of the
Confirmation Order, authorization of a private sale of the Program
Properties to the Providers in accordance with the terms of the
Purchase Agreement free and clear of all Liens, Claims, interests
or encumbrances except as otherwise set forth in the Purchase
Agreement. Upon Confirmation, the Debtor and/or the Plan
Administrator, as applicable, will be authorized to take any and
all actions necessary to consummate the Program Properties Sale.

A hearing is currently scheduled before the Honorable Robert E.
Grossman, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge, at the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Eastern District of New York, Alfonse M. D'Amato Federal
Courthouse, Courtroom 860, Central Islip, New York 11722, on Nov.
7, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. to consider, among other things, approval of
the Disclosure Statement and the Scheduling and Procedures Motion.

Responses and objections, if any, to the approval of the Disclosure
Statement or the Scheduling and Procedures Motion must be made in
writing and be served upon so as to be received no later than Nov.
3, 2017, at 4:00 p.m.

Creditors Kloiber Holdings, LLC and Kloiber Real Estate Holdings,
LLC filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Colorado a disclosure statement in support of a plan of
reorganization for Grizzly Land, LLC, dated Oct. 6, 2017.

Holders of Allowed Claims will receive a distribution of 100% in
the amount of their Allowed Claims under the Plan. The Plan
incorporates the terms of the Settlement Agreement, which resulted
in the release and/or withdrawal of certain enumerated Unsecured
Claims against Grizzly Land. The Plan is consensual, and the most
substantial Secured Claim against Grizzly Land held by Rabo will be
repaid in full through the Rabo Exit Facility. The Plan will allow
Grizzly Land to emerge from chapter 11 as a successfully
reorganized company with ongoing operations.

David Kloiber will be the successor management and representative
of the Reorganized Debtor and will have all of the rights, powers,
and standing of a debtor in possession and such other rights,
powers and duties incident to causing performance of the
Reorganized Debtor's obligations under the Plan as may be
necessary.

Each Holder of an Allowed Class 4 Unsecured Claim will receive cash
equal to the unpaid portion of such Allowed Unsecured Claim or such
other treatment as to which the Reorganized Debtor and such Holder
will have agreed upon in writing.

accounting professionals and financial advisors, at a debtor's
expense. They may investigate the debtor's business and financial
affairs. Importantly, official committees serve as fiduciaries to
the general population of creditors they represent.

HAWAII ISLAND AIR: In Chapter 11 to Keep Planes Flying
------------------------------------------------------
Hawaii Island Air, Inc., sought Chapter 11 protection to counter
threats by lessors to ground aircraft.

Debtor Island Air was founded in 1980 as Princeville Airways.  It
was renamed Island Air in 1992 and has been serving the Islands of
Hawaii for 37 years.  Debtor currently offers approximately 200
flights each week between Oahu, Maui, Kauai and Hawaii Island, and
employs more than 400 individuals throughout the State of Hawaii.

In January 2016, Hawaii-based investment companies PaCap Aviation
Finance, LLC ("PAF") and Malama lnvestments, LLC ("Malama")
acquired a controlling interest in Island Air from Ohana Airline
Holdings, LLC ("OAH"), which is wholly owned by Oracle Corporation
founder Larry Ellison.  Each of these companies owns one-third  of
the issued and outstanding stock of the Debtor.

David Uchiyama, as Chairman, Director, President, Chief Executive
Officer, Treasurer and Secretary, is the Designated Officer in the
instant bankruptcy petition.

Christopher Gossert and Catherine Lagareta are the only other
currently serving directors of the Debtor.

Since the change in management in 2016, the Debtor has been focused
on improving operations, increasing efficiencies and elevating
service to customers.  This has included strategic investments in
equipment and supplies, including upgrading its aircraft fleet, as
well as expanding training and resources for employees.

Island Air narrowed its 2017 first quarter loss while revenue
continued to rise, making this the airline's highest quarterly
revenue since before 2013 when Island Air was required to begin
reporting its financial data to the Department of Transportation
due to the size of its aircraft.

In the second quarter of 2017, the airline earned $12.5 million in
revenues, its highest quarterly revenue in more than a decade.  In
the first quarter of 2017, Island Air flew 172,200 passengers (over
double the previous quarter's figure of 75,102).

Additionally, Island Air has increased marketing in North America,
Japan, Korea, Australia and New Zealand.  

In recent weeks Island Air has been in the process of modernizing
its information technology system, which when fully implemented --
with a scheduled launch date of later this month -- will enhance
online reservation and bookings, expand digital services and
improve interface with code-share and interline airline partners.

                   Events Precipitating Filing

Mr. Uchiyama, the CEO, recounts that on Sept. 15, 2017, Debtor
executed a Lease Payment Deferral and Amendment Agreement by and
between Wells Fargo Bank Northwest, National Association, as
Trustee and Lessor for 4543 Aircraft Trust, 4546 Aircraft Trust,
4554 Aircraft Trust.  These Aircraft Trusts were established by
Elix Assets 8 Limited.  The purpose of the Deferral Agreement is to
defer payments on the aircraft as part of an overall workout among
Island Air, Lessor and Elix I 15.  As a condition precedent to each
Lessors' entry into the Deferral Agreement, the Debtor was required
to execute an Account Control and Security Agreement establishing a
control account and amending and restating the agreement for a
prior control account at California Bank & Trust.  The accounts
were opened pursuant to Account Control and Security Agreement
dated as of Nov. 28,2016 and Account Control and Security Agreement
dated as of Sept. 15,
2017.

As with all companies experiencing a growth in demand, there is an
adjustment period. Island Air leases all of its aircraft, and as a
result of this growth in demand,  Island Air was required to
renegotiate its leases with Lessors.  After weeks of negotiations,
Island Air was completely surprised by Lessors' recent, unexpected
actions.

On Oct. 12, 2017 , while in the process of negotiating its aircraft
leases with Lessor, Island Air was surprised that Lessors served
Island Air with notices of termination of the leases and demands to
surrender its aircraft.

Subsequently, but also on Oct. 12, counsel for Lessors sent notice
to the Debtor that Lessors were freezing the assets in the
Controlled Accounts.

On Oct. 13, 2017, by letter from counsel, the Debtor objected to
both Control Shifting Notices, maintaining that Lessors were in
breach of the respective Lease Agreements and the recently
negotiated Deferral Agreement.  These Notices came as a complete
surprise to Island Air, who believed they were in extended, ongoing
negotiations to resolve the alleged defaults in the Control
Shifting Notices.

According to CEO Uchiyama, these unlawful moves by the Lessors came
just two days before the start of the internationally recognized
Ironman competition, an event which annually hosts over 2,000
participants, many of whom rely on Island Air to transport them to
the event located in Kona, on the island of Hawaii.  Island Air has
been advised by its senior secured lenders that the funds in the
Island Air Controlled Accounts are collateral for Island Air
obligations owed to the senior secured lenders.  Island Air is
advised that its senior secured lenders object to the Notices and
release of any funds from the Controlled Accounts to the Lessors.

Island Air was forced to file for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection
as a result of threats by Lessors to ground the aircraft and strand
hundreds of passengers.  Without bankruptcy protection, Island Air
would be irreparably harmed.  Island Air seeks to maintain its
service to its customers, provide continued employment to its more
than 400 valued employees, and ensure a revenue stream so its
vendors are paid.

HOUSTON BLUEBONNET: Japhet, Hamman Estates Must Prove Claims
------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Marvin Isgur of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of Texas granted the estate of Jane Japhet Guinn, et al.,
and Henry R. Hamman, et al.'s motion for approval of certain
pleadings and other filings as their respective informal proofs of
claim in the chapter 11 bankruptcy of Houston Bluebonnet, L.L.C.
However, the Japhets' and Hammans' informal proofs of claim are
determined to lack prima facie validity.

The Japhets and Hammans argued that their pleadings, motions,
orders, and other documents filed in Houston Bluebonnet's
bankruptcy case and in actions removed to state court qualify as
informal proofs of claim.  The Japhets and Hammans also argued that
the referenced items make demands on Houston Bluebonnet's
bankruptcy estate and evince an intention to hold it liable.
Houston Bluebonnet opposed the Japhets' and Hammans' motion,
asserting that the Japhets and Hammans' filings lack the
information necessary to constitute an informal proof of claim,
that those filings were filed long after the bar date for proofs of
claims, and that it would be inequitable to recognize these filings
as informal proofs of claim this late in its chapter 11.

The Court finds that while the Japhets' and Hammans' pleadings and
filings constitute informal proofs of claim against Houston
Bluebonnet, those proofs of claims are not prima facie valid. When
filling out Official Form 410, a creditor is required to list its
name and the dollar amount of its claim, amongst other information.
Here, the Japhets' and Hammans' informal proofs of claim do not
include the dollar amount of their claims nor the specific
creditors bringing each particular claim. These informal proofs of
claim are thus incomplete, do not substantially conform to the
appropriate Official Form, and are not prima facie valid.

While an incomplete proof of claim is not prima facie valid, the
claim is not automatically disallowed. However, a debtor has no
evidentiary burden to overcome when objecting to a claim that is
not prima facie valid. Accordingly, if Houston Bluebonnet objects
to the Japhets' and Hammans' informal proofs of claim, and after
notice to the relevant parties, the Court will hold a hearing to
determine the allowed amount, if any, of those claims pursuant to
11 U.S.C. section 502(b). The burden at that hearing would be on
the Japhets and Hammans to prove their claims under state law.

ILD CORP: Wants to Use Bank of America's Cash Collateral
--------------------------------------------------------
IDL Corp. and its debtor affiliates ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the Middle District of Florida for authority to use
approximately $97,526 of cash collateral of Bank of America, N.A.,
to continue to operate their businesses for the next four weeks,
and depending on the month, a greater or lesser amount will be
required each comparable period thereafter.

As of the Petition Date, the Debtors owed BOA approximately
$5,625,000 in outstanding principal interest.  BOA's claim against
the Debtors is secured by a first priority perfected lien on
substantially all of the Debtors' assets.

The Debtors do not believe that any other entity has a lien on the
Debtors' cash collateral, but do not anticipate that one of the
Debtors' customers global Tel Link may assert an interest in the
cash collateral.  The Debtors dispute that GTL has any interest in
the cash collateral, but will agree to provide GTL with a
replacement lien to the same validity, extent, and priority as
existed prior to the Petition Date as adequate protection to GTL.

The Debtors will use the cash collateral to make payroll and pay
other expenses arising in the ordinary course of business.

As adequate protection for the use of cash collateral, the Debtors
propose to grant BOA a replacement lien to the same validity,
extent, and priority as its prepetition lien.

The Debtors also propose to grant GTL a replacement lien to the
same validity, extent, and priority as any lien it may have held
prior to the Petition Date.  Like BOA, GTL will be adequately
protected as the Debtors will be able to operate on a cash flow
positive basis over the course of the next four weeks.

JOHN Q. HAMMONS: J.D. Holdings Can't Pursue Delaware Litigation
---------------------------------------------------------------
Creditor J.D. Holdings, LLC, and its affiliates seek relief from
the automatic stay imposed in the bankruptcy cases of John Q.
Hammons Fall 2006, LLC, et al., in order to pursue litigation in
Delaware state court against the Debtors for breach of contract.
The Debtors have moved for summary judgment seeking denial of J.D.
Holdings' motion, and J.D. Holdings has cross-moved for summary
judgment seeking relief from stay.

Judge Robert D. Berger of the U.S. Bankruptcy for the District of
Kansas Court denies J.D. Holdings' motion for relief from stay and
cross-motion for summary judgment seeking relief from stay because
it has not met its burden to show cause for relief from the
automatic stay. The Court grants Debtors' motion for summary
judgment dismissing J.D. Holdings' motion.

Debtors consist of the Hammons Trust and 75 of its directly or
indirectly wholly owned subsidiaries and affiliates. John Q.
Hammons, of which the Hammons Trust is named, entered into a
Sponsor Entity Right of First Refusal Agreement (ROFR) on Sept. 16,
2005 with J.D. Holdings. The ROFR was amended in 2008. Broadly, the
ROFR required the parties to sell certain hotels by a defined date,
and the 2008 amendment added a requirement that in any sale to J.D.
Holdings, Debtors had to provide seller financing of at least 22.5%
of the sale price, plus costs.

Litigation concerning the ROFR kicked off in 2012, when J.D.
Holdings filed suit in Delaware state court for breach of contract
to address breaches of the ROFR. The litigation had been ongoing
since that date, until Debtors filed their bankruptcy petitions. On
Dec. 13, 2016, the Court entered an order approving the rejection
of the ROFR by the Debtors

The Court is persuaded that in this case, the strong public policy
of centralized resolution of claims supports keeping the matter in
bankruptcy court and not enforcing the forum selection clause in
the rejected ROFR. The Court has invested significant time and
resources to this litigation, and the commencement of the claims
estimation process is imminent. Although the Delaware litigation
had been ongoing for four years prior to the commencement of the
bankruptcy case, the parties were focused on specific performance
of the ROFR, and had not focused on a monetary claim for damages
for breach of contract. Therefore the Delaware Court is in no
better position to resolve the dispute than this Court, and, in
fact, returning to the Delaware Court would cause a significant
delay and burden to the resolution of the bankruptcy case, as well
as be inherently unfair to the numerous other creditors who do not
have standing to participate in the Delaware litigation. For these
reasons, this factor does not weigh in favor of lifting the stay.

KEY SAFETY: Moody's Lowers CFR to B3; Outlook Stable
----------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Key Safety Systems, Inc.'s
ratings -- Corporate Family Rating (CFR) to B3 from B1 and
Probability of Default rating to B3-PD from B2-PD. In related
action, the ratings of Key Safety's secured revolver and secured
term loan were downgraded to B1 from Ba2. The rating outlook was
revised to stable from negative.

The following ratings were downgraded:

Key Safety Systems, Inc.:

Corporate Family Rating, to B3 from B1;

Probability of Default Rating, to B3-PD from B2-PD;

$75 million senior secured revolver due 2019, to B1 (LGD3) from
Ba2 (LGD2);

$575 million ($534.7 million outstanding) senior secured term loan
due 2021 to B1 (LGD3) from Ba2 (LGD2).

Rating Outlook: Stable, from Negative

RATINGS RATIONALE

The downgrade of Key Safety's Corporate Family Rating to B3
reflects operating challenges that the company is facing resulting
in weak credit metrics and a weak liquidity profile, while
supporting new business growth. Positively, Key Safety's revenue
base continues to expand with first-half 2017 sales up 10.5% over
the prior year first-half during a year of stagnating global
automotive sales. However, this level of growth has driven high
levels of operational inefficiencies due to a significant number of
program launches, leading to additional labor costs, premium
freight and supplier constraints, as well as other variable costs.
These pressures, which have resulted in EBITA margins deteriorating
to break-even levels by the 2nd quarter of 2017, are expected to
continue through the 3rd quarter before beginning to ease. For the
LTM period ending June 30, 2017, Key Safety's EBITA/interest and
Debt/EBITDA had worsened to 0.6x and 7.7x, respectively. These
operating pressures also weakened Key Safety's liquidity profile
resulting from negative free cash flow generation. Key Safety's
parent, Ningbo Joyson Electronic Corporation (Ningbo Joyson), has
continued to support the company through cash infusions, supporting
cash balances.

Key Safety continues to maintain strong competitive considerations
as a global supplier of airbags, seatbelts, and steering wheels
within the automotive industry, which have supported top line
growth. These considerations include a balanced geographic exposure
to regions experiencing growth, with Asia representing about 48% of
revenues, Europe - 18%; the Americas represents 34%. Key Safety
also continues to generate new business wins with its major
customers.

The stable rating outlook considers the company's continuing top
line growth and the demonstrated financial support from its parent
Ningbo Joyson. Public reports indicate that Key Safety's announced
intention to acquire Takata Corporation (see issuer comment dated
June 26, 2017) continues to be on track. Moody's will reassess the
rating implications of this transaction as additional details
become known.

Key Safety is anticipated to have a weak liquidity profile over the
near-term, as operational issues consume cash. While as of June 30,
2017, cash on hand was approximately $118 million, most of this
cash was overseas supporting local operations. Bank acceptance
notes, also a source of liquidity, were approximately $29 million.
Key Safety's weak operating performance is expected to result in
negative free cash flow for 2017 in the high teens as a percentage
of debt. While operating performance is expected to improve over
next 12-15 months, negative cash flow on a trailing twelve month
basis is expected well into 2018. Supporting the company's
liquidity profile has been continued cash infusions from Ningbo
Joyson. Additional liquidity support is expected over the near-term
in order to preserve financial flexibility. These cash infusions
have preserved availability under the $75 million revolving credit
facility due 2019. As of June 30, 2017, availability under the
revolving credit facility was approximately $58 million after $15
million of borrowings and $2 million in undrawn letters of credit.
Key Safety's credit facility has a springing maximum net leverage
ratio covenant that is tested during periods where the ending
utilization of the revolver is at least 32.5%. Ongoing cash
infusions from Ningbo Joyson are expected to keep revolving
utilization below testing levels over the near-term.

A lower rating could result if improvement in operating performance
is not demonstrated over the coming quarters as the company
addresses its new business backlog. Consideration for a lower
rating could result if Key Safety's credit metrics are not expected
to improve by year-end 2017.

An improvement in Key Safety's rating would be driven by an
improvement in credit metrics and free cash flow generation
available to reduce debt. A consideration for a higher rating could
result from EBITA / interest sustained above 1.5x and debt / EBITDA
below 5x.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global
Automotive Supplier Industry published in June 2016. Please see the
Rating Methodologies page on www.moodys.com for a copy of this
methodology.

Key Safety, headquartered in Sterling Heights, Michigan, designs,
engineers and manufactures airbags and inflators, seatbelts, and
steering wheels for the global automotive industry. Revenues for
the LTM period ended June 30, 2017 were approximately $1.9 billion.
Key Safety is a subsidiary of Ningbo Joyson Electronic Corp.


LAURA ELSHEIMER: Wants Approval on Interim Cash Collateral Use
--------------------------------------------------------------
Laura Elsheimer LLC seeks authorization from the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court in Massachusetts for the interim use of cash collateral in
the ordinary course of business.

The Debtor asserts that it is unable to continue operating or
managing and maintaining the Property without the use of cash
collateral.  Without the use of cash collateral, the Debtor will
suffer significant financial harm. The Debtor claims that the use
of cash collateral is necessary in this Chapter 11 proceeding to
allow the Debtor to preserve its going concern value.

Velocity Commercial Capital, LLC holds a first mortgage and
assignment of rents on the Debtor's Property in connection to a
certain loan commenced on June 2015. The current balance owed to
Velocity Commercial is approximately $600,000 with an interest rate
of 9.25%. Because the interest rate of the debt service is too high
for the Debtor to maintain payments, as such, the Debtor intends to
immediately sell the underlying collateral.

The Debtor believes that Velocity Commercial has just obtained an
appraisal of the Property indicating a value of $900,000.

As adequate protection, the Debtor proposes that Velocity
Commercial be granted in some instances monthly cash payment along
with postpetition replacement liens and security interests in
property of the Debtor's estate.

The replacement liens, however, will be recognized only to the
extent of diminution in the value of Velocity Commercial's
prepetition collateral constituting cash collateral resulting from
the Debtor's use thereof in operation of the Debtor's ongoing
operations. Said replacement liens will maintain the same priority,
validity, and enforceability as Velocity Commercial's liens on
their pre-petition collateral.

LE-MAR HOLDINGS: May Use Cash Collateral Until Oct. 13 Hearing
--------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas has
authorized Le-Mar Holdings, Inc., and its debtor affiliates to use
all collections received by the Debtors from the USPS on an interim
basis, until the second interim hearing.

The second interim hearing will be held on Oct. 13, 2017, at 9:00
a.m. (prevailing Central Time).

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 29, 2017, the
Debtors sought permission to use cash collateral.  The Debtors
entered into a loan facility with City Bank, which is secured by a
second lien on the Debtors' accounts receivable and first lien on
certain equipment pursuant to a security agreement.  

To the extent Mobilization has a valid, perfected first position
security interest, Mobilization is granted adequate protection for
any diminution in the value of Mobilization's interest in such cash
collateral caused by the use of cash collateral with a valid,
perfected, and enforceable replacement first priority security
interest in the post-petition accounts receivable due to the
Debtors from the USPS.  To the extent City has a valid, perfected
second priority security interest in the Debtors' accounts
receivable from the USPS, City is granted adequate protection for
any diminution in the value of City's interest in the collateral
caused by the use of cash collateral with a valid, perfected, and
enforceable replacement second priority security interest in the
post-petition accounts receivable due to the Debtors from the USPS.
To the extent that any applicable non-bankruptcy law otherwise
would restrict the granting, scope, enforceability, or attachment
of the replacement liens and security interests authorized or
created by the court order, or otherwise would impose filing
registration requirements with respect to replacement liens, the
law is preempted to the maximum extent permitted by the U.S.
Bankruptcy Code, other applicable federal law, and the judicial
power of the Court.

motion asking the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of
Missouri for an order directing the appointment of a Chapter 11
Trustee in the case of Osage Water Company.

Under the unique facts of this case, cause exists to direct the

fiduciary and to effectuate the goal of selling or liquidating the

PACKARD SQUARE: Court Dismisses Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Case
----------------------------------------------------------
Judge Thomas J. Tucker of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern
District of Michigan denied Debtor Packard Square LLC's turnover
motion and granted CAN IV Packard Square LLC's (Canyon)
cross-motion.  Judge Tucker also dismissed the Debtor's bankruptcy
case.

In the turnover motion, the Debtor seeks an order under 11 U.S.C.
section 543(b), requiring a state-court appointed receiver, who has
been in place for over 10 months, to turn over all of the Debtor's
property to the Debtor, and to file an accounting of the type
described in section 543(b)(2). In Canyon's cross-motion, Canyon
seeks an order under 11 U.S.C. section 543(d)(1), excusing the
receiver from complying with the turnover and accounting provisions
of section 543(b). Relatedly, Canyon also seeks an order under 11
U.S.C. sections 305(a)(1) and 105(a), "suspending" this bankruptcy
case.

The Court has considered all of the arguments of the parties, and
all of the sections 543(d)(1) and 305(a)(1). But the most important
factor in this case, which overwhelms all other factors, is that
the Court has denied the Debtor’s DIP Financing Motion.

The Debtor and Canyon agree, and no other party disputes, that it
is in the best interests of the Debtor, the Debtor’s equity
holder(s), and the creditors, that the Debtor's construction
Project and development in Ann Arbor be completed and stabilized
(fully rented out, essentially), all as soon as possible, and all
as cost-efficiently as possible. And all agree that time is of the
essence with this Project.

These objectives cannot possibly be achieved if the Court displaces
the state court Receiver by granting the Debtor's Turnover Motion.
The Debtor has no funds available that it can use to do any work
toward completing the construction of the Project. The Court has
just denied Debtor's DIP Financing Motion. It is undisputed that
without post-petition financing, the Debtor has no money with which
to perform any work on the Project or to fund its Chapter 11
bankruptcy case.

The Debtor says that it needs to borrow roughly $11.9 million to
complete the Project and a total of $22 million to complete and
stabilize the Project and fund its bankruptcy case. And the Debtor
says that it cannot obtain post-petition financing other than on
the terms it has proposed, and in particular, without giving its
DIP lender a lien that primes (takes priority over) all other
liens. Yet this Court has found that the Debtor cannot obtain such
financing because with such a priming lien there is a lack of
adequate protection of the existing lien holders’ interests.

All of this compels the conclusion that the Debtor has no ability
to complete the Project, let alone complete and stabilize the
Project. That leaves the existing state court receivership as the
only viable option for completing and stabilizing the Project. It
is clear and not genuinely disputed that if the Receiver is
permitted to continue the efforts it was making when the Debtor
filed this bankruptcy case, the Receiver will be able to obtain the
financing necessary to complete and stabilize the Project, through
the existing and proposed amended Receivership loan from Canyon.

Under these circumstances, the only viable choice is for this Court
to allow the state court Receiver to continue to perform and
control the construction, completion, and ultimate stabilization of
the Project, under the supervision and control of the state court.
That, in turn, requires this Court to deny the Debtor's turnover
motion and to grant Canyon's cross-motion.

The Court, thus, dismisses the case. In order to prevent any
attempted evasion by anyone of the Court's decisions, the Court
bars the filing of any new bankruptcy case, by or against the
Debtor, for a period of two years. This should give ample time for
the Receiver to finish completion and stabilization of the Project,
and for the state court receivership case to substantially
conclude.

PEABODY ENERGY: Court Disallows DMS Claim
-----------------------------------------
Judge Barry S. Schermer of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Eastern District of Missouri sustains the objection of Reorganized
Peabody Energy Corporation and certain of its direct and indirect
subsidiaries to DMS Contracting, Inc.'s Claim No. 6144.

The dispute concerns whether DMS waived the DMS Claim under the
terms of the Agreement between Owner and Design-Builder, dated
April 23, 2015, by and between Peabody Gateway North, LLC and DMS.


At issue is whether DMS can seek an upward adjustment of the
contract price based on the subsoil conditions at the construction
site. DMS contends that the subsoil conditions at the construction
site were concealed and unknown conditions and that DMS provided
sufficient notice of those conditions to assert a claim under the
Contract. The Reorganized Debtors contend that DMS waived that
claim under the Contract for three independent reasons.

The Court holds that DMS' contention that the subsoil conditions
were concealed or unknown is based solely on the allegation that
those conditions were not disclosed in information regarding
subsoil conditions that Peabody provided in the bidding process,
and DMS expressly waived the right to assert such claims. DMS also
did not provide timely or adequate notice of those alleged
concealed and unknown conditions under the Contract. Finally, DMS
did not timely assert a claim under the Contract.

Thus, the Court finds that DMS waived the DMS Claim under the
Contract. As a result, the Court sustains the Objection as it
relates to the DMS Claim, and disallows the DMS Claim.

collateral must be filed by Oct. 19, 2017, at 5:00 p.m.

SOTERA WIRELESS: Employees Misappropriated Masimo Trade Secrets
---------------------------------------------------------------
Masimo on Oct. 16 disclosed that the bankruptcy court in San Diego
has issued final judgment, holding that Sotera Wireless Employees
misappropriated Masimo trade secrets.  The misappropriation stems
from two former Masimo employees, James Welch and David Hunt,
copying thousands of confidential Masimo documents, and using
Masimo's trade secrets to benefit Sotera.  The Court found clear
and convincing evidence that willful and malicious misappropriation
exists.  The court also found that the actions of Welch and Hunt
were "despicable conduct," and that they "consciously disregarded
Masimo's rights."

The Court has permanently enjoined Sotera from retaining,
disclosing, disseminating or using confidential Masimo documents,
originating from either James Welch's or David Hunt's Masimo
computers.  The Court also enjoined Sotera, until September 16,
2021, from including Mr. Welch in Sotera's Design Control process,
including preparing the Customer Needs Document, the Design Input
Requirements documentation, the Software Requirements Specification
or User Story, implementing software design and the Software Design
Specification, the Design Review, the Verification process, the
Validation process, developing schematics and other production
specifications, and preparing the design history file.  David Hunt
had not been working at Sotera since 2015.  Masimo understands that
Mr. Welch is also no longer employed by Sotera.

This case was originally the subject of an action in the Superior
Court of Orange County filed in May 2013 against Mr. Welch, Mr.
Hunt and Sotera.  This portion of that case was tried in the
bankruptcy court in San Diego after Sotera filed for Chapter 11
bankruptcy in 2016.  Thus, the San Diego ruling concerned the
misappropriation of Masimo's trade secrets by Sotera.  The
remaining portion of the Superior Court action against Welch and
Hunt remains pending.

Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo, said, "I am sad that we even
had to pursue this case. These were trusted employees.  I hope all
members of Masimo's team will adhere to Masimo's guiding principles
of ‘remaining faithful to your promises and responsibilities,
being driven by fascination and accomplishment, not power and
greed, making every day as fun as possible, making themselves
better each year, and, doing what is best for patient care.'  We
believe these guiding principles are critical not only to our
success, but to our integrity and humanity."

SPECTRUM HEALTHCARE: Court OKs Continued Cash Collateral Use
------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. James J. Tancredi of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Connecticut has entered a 14th order authorizing
Spectrum Healthcare LLC, and its debtor-affiliates to use cash
collateral.

A hearing on the continued use of cash collateral will be held on
Oct. 26, 2017, at 4:00 p.m.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 6, 2017, the
Court previously entered a thirteenth order authorizing the Debtors
to use cash collateral of MidCap Funding IV LLC, as assignee of
MidCap Financial, LLC, CCP Finance I, LLC, as assignee of
Nationwide Health Properties, LLC, as lender under the NHP Loan,
CCP Park Place 7541 LLC and CCP Torrington 7542 LLC as agents for
NHP with respect to the NHP Lease, Love Funding Corporation, the
Secretary of Housing and Urban Development as additional secured
party with LFC, and the State of Connecticut Department of Revenue
Services.

The Court has authorized the Debtors to pay only their current
expenses as reflected in the budget, which Budget will include
payment of $5,000 per week for use-and-occupancy to the CCP
Landlords; provided, however, that Spectrum Manchester Realty or
its assignee, MidCap, as the case may be, and the CCP Landlords
reserve the right to assert any accrued but unpaid rent or other
lease obligations owed or to become owed to them, respectively, as
administrative expense claims, which Administrative Rent Claims
will be subordinate to any unpaid, non-professional administrative
expenses at the conclusion of the sale process contemplated by this
Order or any wind down process that may occur in these cases,
except, as to the subordination, to the extent of $6,000 per week
of rent for each of the CCP Landlords and Spectrum Manchester
Realty or its assignee, MidCap, as the case may be, starting as of
Jan. 13, 2017; provided further, however, that (i) the
Administrative Rent Claims will only be payable upon further court
order to the extent that funds are available to pay the
Administrative Rent Claims; and (ii) nothing herein will affect any
rights of the CCP Landlords, Spectrum Manchester Realty or its
assignee, Midcap, or any other party, under Section 365(d)(4) of
the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.

If the payment of any line item in the Budget is more than 5% of
the budgeted item or the item is not included in the Budget, then
in that event, the Debtors will not pay same unless this procedure
is followed: the Debtors will notify by fax or e-mail the Secured
Parties and each Secured Party's counsel of the item to be paid and
an explanation; if no objection is received by the Debtors from any
of the Secured Parties or any Secured Party's counsel within one
business day from receipt of notice, their consent will be deemed
to be given for the expenditure.  

If any of the Secured Parties do object (through counsel or
otherwise), then in that event, a conference will be set up before
the Court or other person as designated by the Court to resolve the
objection and its decision will be binding.  The Debtors will
provide and make available to Secured Parties and each Secured
Party's counsel any and all reports, income statements and balance
sheets within 30 days after the end of the month, weekly cash
reports showing inflows and outflows in reasonable detail, budgets,
occupancy rates per facility on a weekly and monthly basis, payroll
and tax information per facility any other reasonable requests for
financial or operational information.  

Each Friday at noon (Eastern), starting April 7, 2017, and without
prior request from any Secured Party or the Committee, the Debtors
shall provide to the Secured Parties and each Secured Party's
counsel and the Committee a written reconciliation showing actual
receipts and disbursements for the preceding week compared with the
Budget.  In addition, the Debtors will provide to the Secured
Parties and each Secured Party's counsel and the Committee accounts
payable reports on a monthly basis no later than the 20th day of
the month following the month to be reported.  Unless stated
otherwise in this paragraph, all requested information will be sent
via email to counsel for Secured Parties within two business days
after the request is made.  For the avoidance of doubt, all notices
required to be given to a Secured Party pursuant to the court order
will also be given simultaneously to such Secured Party's counsel.

All collections (whether paid by wire or check) will continue to be
paid into the Collection Accounts.  The funds in the Collection
Accounts will be swept, each business day, into the Payment
Accounts.  The Funds will continue to constitute cash collateral
and will not be applied by MidCap to the Revolver.  The Funds will
be promptly (within two business days) remitted to the Debtors'
operating accounts for use in connection with their operations.

The Debtors are authorized to adequately protect Secured Parties by
(a) granting to them replacement liens on the Collection Accounts
and the debtor-in-possession accounts of the Debtors, nunc pro tunc
to the Petition Date, subject to the Exclusion and Carve-Out as
contained herein, to the same extent (if any) and with the same
validity, enforceability and priority as the MidCap Prepetition
Liens, the NHP Prepetition Liens, the CCP Landlords' Prepetition
Liens and the LFC Prepetition Liens (along with HUD's lien as
additional secured party) had against the Debtors' deposit accounts
and other assets prior to the Petition Date, and (b) making weekly
adequate protection payments of $10,000 to Midcap starting Sept.
21, 2017, and continuing weekly through the duration of the court
order.  

The Secured Parties are granted an additional replacement lien in
cash collateral, accounts including (without limitation)
health-care insurance receivables and governmental healthcare
receivables and all proceeds thereof whether deposited in the
Collections Accounts, any payment account or elsewhere, and other
collateral in which each of the Secured Parties held a security
interest pre-petition, whether acquired before or after the
Petition Date, whether now owned or hereafter acquired, created or
arising, and all product and proceeds thereof, to the extent of any
diminution of the value of the prepetition security interest, tax
lien or setoff or recoupment rights the Secured Parties may claim
in the Cash Collateral Accounts or other collateral (including
accounts receivable) for the MidCap Prepetition Obligations, the
NHP Prepetition Obligations, the CCP Landlords' Prepetition
Obligations or the LFC Prepetition Obligations, arising out of the
use of the accounts and proceeds by Debtors pursuant to the court
order.  The additional replacement liens will be effective to the
same extent and with same validity, enforceability and priority as
the MidCap Prepetition Liens, the NHP Prepetition Liens, the CCP
Landlords’ Prepetition Liens, the LFC Prepetition Liens, and any
rights of setoff claimed by DRS as against the Debtors' assets
prior to the Petition Date.  To the extent the adequate protection
provided herein to MidCap, the CCP Landlords, as agents for NHP, or
CCP Finance proves to be inadequate and inadequacy gives rise to a
claim allowable under Section 507(a)(2) of the Bankruptcy Code, the
claim will constitute an allowed administrative expense claim
against each of the Debtors on a joint and several basis with
priority over all other administrative claims in the bankruptcy
cases (other than the Carve-Out and the Exclusion), including all
claims of the kind specified in Section 503(b) and 507(b) of the
Bankruptcy Code.

VALENCE TECHNOLOGY: Roth Partners' Reimbursement Claim Disallowed
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Lee Yeakel of the U.S. District Court for the Western
District of Texas issued an order affirming the bankruptcy court's
order denying the first amended motion of Roth Capital Partners,
LLC, for order directing reimbursement of attorneys' fees and costs
for the period Oct. 9, 2013, through May 23, 2014, in the case
captioned ROTH CAPITAL PARTNERS, LLC, Appellant, v. VALENCE
TECHNOLOGY, INC., Appellee, Cause No. A-14-CA-0949-LY (W.D. Tex.).

Roth challenges the bankruptcy court's ruling that Roth's
attorney's-fees-reimbursement application was not ripe for review
because the order granting Roth the Success Fee was on appeal to
this court.  The court finds that this basis for denying Roth its
attorney's fees and costs is now moot.  Valence Technologies Inc.'s
liability to Roth for the Success Fee is now final, and further, by
order rendered August 12, 2016, the bankruptcy court declared the
Success Fee an allowed claim and has ordered payment terms. Roth's
attorney's-fees claim is at this time not premature.

Roth also challenges the bankruptcy court's finding that Roth's
motion was a tardy request for an administrative expense because it
was not filed within the time limits set by the Plan. Roth argues
that the Plan set time limits only for administrative claims that
accrued before the effective date of the Plan. Roth argues that its
motion related to the Success Fee did not accrue until Roth was
awarded its Success Fee by the bankruptcy court on April 29, 2014,
which was more than four months after the effective date of the
Plan. Thus, contends Roth, the administrative bar date set forth in
the Plan is inapplicable to Roth's application for reimbursement of
its attorney's fees. Further, Roth argues that the Plan is silent
and makes no provision for any deadline for applications for
administrative expenses incurred after the effective date of the
Plan. Finally, Roth argues that it did not wait an unreasonable
amount of time to seek reimbursement of its attorney's fees and
costs because it filed its motion approximately one month after the
claim accrued.

Valence disagrees and argues that based on the Plan's defined term
"Administrative Expense" Roth's request for its attorney's fees is
late. Valence also argues that a professional is not entitled to
post-confirmation fees and expenses brought after the claims bar
date established by the Plan.

The court agrees with Valence and concludes that assuming Roth
could show that it is entitled to recover its attorney's fees and
costs, the attorney's fees and costs related to the Success Fee are
administrative expenses under the Plan. There are, however, no
provisions in the Plan requiring Valence to pay administrative
expenses that occur after the bar date. The court concludes that
the bankruptcy court did not err in ruling that Roth's attorney's
fees and costs incurred in pursuing the Success Fee are not
recoverable as administrative expenses.

The court concludes that the bankruptcy court's findings of fact
stated on the record in open court on July 22, 2014, related to
Roth's claim for reimbursement of its attorney's fees and costs for
the period of Oct. 9, 2013, through May 23, 2014, are not clearly
erroneous. Additionally, the court has reviewed de novo the
bankruptcy court's conclusions of law related to Roth's same claim
for reimbursement of attorney's fees and costs, which were also
stated on the record in open court on July 22, 2014.

Thus, the District Court lifts the stay imposed on Sept. 23, 2015,
and affirms the bankruptcy court's ruling.

                   About Valence Technology

Valence Technology, Inc., filed a Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. W.D.
Tex. Case No. 12-11580) on July 12, 2012, in its home-town in
Austin.  Founded in 1989, Valence develops lithium iron magnesium
phosphate rechargeable batteries.  Its products are used in hybrid
and electric vehicles, as well as hybrid boats and Segway personal
transporters.

The Debtor disclosed debt of $82.6 million and assets of $31.5
million as of March 31, 2012.  The Debtor disclosed $24,858,325 in
assets and $78,520,831 in liabilities as of the Chapter 11 filing.
Chairman Carl E. Berg and related entities own 44.4 percent of the
shares.  ClearBridge Advisors LLC owns 5.5 percent.

Judge Craig A. Gargotta presided over the case.  The Company was
advised by Sabrina L. Streusand at Streusand, Landon & Ozburn, LLP,
with respect to bankruptcy matters.  The petition was signed by
Robert Kanode, CEO.

On Aug. 8, 2012, the U.S. Trustee for Region 7 appointed five
creditors to serve on the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors
of the Debtor.  Brinkman Portillo Ronk, PC, served as its counsel.

In November 2013, Valence Technology won approval of a
reorganization plan that hands ownership of the Company to secured
lender Berg & Berg Enterprises LLC.  The plan, originally filed in
August 2013, has Berg taking the new stock in exchange for $50
million of the $69.1 million it's owed.  The bankruptcy plan was
approved at a Nov. 13, 2013, confirmation hearing.

The other $19.1 million owing to Berg would become a new loan not
paid until after other creditors.  Unsecured creditors are to be
paid in full on their $5.2 million in claims, with half on
emergence from bankruptcy and the remaining half one year later.

VIERA CHARTER: Moody's Rates $18.015MM Revenue Bonds Ba2
--------------------------------------------------------
Educational Facilities Revenue Bonds (Viera Charter Schools, Inc.
Project), Series 2017A; Rating: Ba2; Rating Type: Underlying LT;
Sale Amount: $18,015,000; Expected Sale Date: 11/02/2017; Rating
Description: Revenue: Government Enterprise;

Issue: Taxable Educational Facilities Revenue Bonds (Viera Charter
Schools, Inc. Project), Series 2017B; Rating: Ba2; Rating Type:
Underlying LT; Sale Amount: $485,000; Expected Sale Date:
11/02/2017; Rating Description: Revenue: Government Enterprise;

Summary Rating Rationale

Moody's Investors Service has assigned an initial Ba2 rating and
stable outlook to Viera Charter Schools, Inc. FL's $18.015 million
Educational Facilities Revenue Bonds (Viera Charter Schools, Inc.
Project), Series 2017A and $485,000 Taxable Educational Facilities
Revenue Bonds (Viera Charter Schools, Inc. Project), Series 2017B.
The bonds are being issued by the Capital Trust Agency (Agency) on
behalf of Viera Charter Schools, Inc., who will serve as Borrower
under a Loan Agreement with the Agency as Issuer.

The Ba2 rating reflects Moody's expectations for consistent but
narrow debt service coverage levels by revenues of this K-8 charter
school, which is essentially at full enrollment and favorably
demonstrating high academic performance and strong demand in a
service area with continued population growth. Strong demand levels
and the school's recent charter renewal extending through June 30,
2032, serve to compensate for the school's limited operating
history, with an opening in the fall of 2013. The rating
incorporates weak liquidity levels that are likely to remain near a
covenanted 60 days cash requirement beginning in fiscal 2019, and a
high degree of leverage moderated by the lack of future borrowing
plans. The Ba2 is also based upon favorable legals including
provisions such as the continuation of management services for 90
days following nonpayment, the requirement that a management
consultant be hired should coverage or liquidity thresholds be
violated, and a reserve account funded at the traditional,
three-pronged level.

Rating Outlook

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectations for stable, albeit
narrow, coverage levels with steadily improving liquidity derived
from projected operating surpluses based upon conservative
financial forecasts and no required additions to enrollment.

Factors that Could Lead to an Upgrade

- Substantial and sustained increases in liquidity levels

- Significantly strengthened debt service coverage levels

- Successful renewal of charter through debt maturity

Factors that Could Lead to a Downgrade

- Declines in liquidity

- Weakened academic performance or erosion of market demand

- Deterioration in debt service coverage levels especially
   relative to MADS requirements

Legal Security

Debt service payments are secured by loan payments from Viera
Charter School Inc., which operates Viera charter school as the
Borrower, to Capital Trust Agency, as Issuer. Pursuant to the Trust
Indenture, Capital Trust Agency then assigns to the Trustee, for
the benefit of bond holders, all its rights under the Loan
Agreement and Mortgage.

Under the Indenture, pledged revenues consist of Gross Revenues
received by the Borrower from operation of the school that are
legally available for payment of the Borrower's obligations under
the Loan Agreement. Gross revenues primarily consist of (1) state
and local funds apportioned to Viera in accordance with the state's
statutory formula; (2) charter school capital outlay revenues,
which are appropriated annually by the state and then apportioned
to charter schools; (3) fees from any before or after school care
or pre-school activities; and (4) any payments from third party
users, although these may not jeopardize tax-exempt status.

Specific to the Series 2017 bonds debt service is also secured by a
reserve equal to the least of (1) MADS; (2) 125% of the average
annual principal and interest requirements; or (3) 10% of bond
proceeds. Draws on the reserve account must be replenished within
12 months in equal payments.

The debt service coverage ratio must equal at least 1.1x. Coverage
of less than 1.0 times constitutes an event of default, and the
Trustee is required to give notice to bondholders. If coverage
falls below 1.1x, Viera Charter School Inc. must hire a consultant
and implement any recommendations to the best of its ability.

On or before 8/15/21, and every five years thereafter, the Borrower
must hire a consultant to complete a capital needs assessment over
the next five years commencing on the following 8/15. The Borrower
must then make equal monthly payments over a five-year period into
a required capital maintenance and operating Fund. These funds are
held by the Trustee and are positively not included in the required
days' cash calculation. The extended period over which the reserve
will be funded, however, and the rolling nature of potential
balances is viewed as a credit weakness.

The additional bonds test (ABT) requires that the Long-Term Debt
Service Coverage Ratio (DSC) for the most recent fiscal year must
be equal to at least 1.2x and a forecast by an accountant must
indicate that DSC for the two consecutive fiscal years, after the
facilities are placed in service, inclusive of the new debt, will
be at least 1.2x. However, the forecast is not required if debt
service coverage, inclusive of the new debt, would have equaled
1.2x in the most recent fiscal year. Apart from the ABT, the school
may incur short-term indebtedness not exceeding 15% of Gross
Revenues.

A revocation of the charter constitutes an event of default.

Use of Proceeds

The current issuance will be used to acquire the school property
through the refinancing of an outstanding operating lease. Bond
proceeds will also a debt service reserve equal to the traditional
three-pronged test and two years of capitalized interest.

Obligor Profile

Viera Charter School is a K-8 school located in Viera, Florida,
near Melbourne. It operates pursuant to charter school contract
with the school board of Brevard County. The schools fall 2017
enrollment of 1,047 is essentially at its full planned capacity of
1,050.

Methodology

The principal methodology used in this rating was US Charter
Schools published in September 2016.

WOMEN AND BIRTH: Wants to Use Cash Collateral Until Dec. 1
----------------------------------------------------------
The Women and Birth Care, Inc., and secured creditor ZB, N.A.,
d/b/a Zions First National Bank, filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the District of Utah a stipulation and joint motion for
authorization allowing the Debtor to use cash collateral until Dec.
1, 2017.

Prior to the Petition Date, the Debtor failed to repay the Zions
Bank Loan as and when required, and is therefore currently in
default of its payment and other obligations to Zions Bank under
the Zions Bank Loan Agreement.

As of Aug. 31, 2017, the balance due and owing by the Debtor under
the First Note incurred by Zions Bank was $4,578, which amount
included: (i) a principal balance due and owing in the amount of
$3,776; (ii) accrued interest in the amount of $298.9; (iii)
collection costs & fees in the amount of $400, and (iv) late fees
in the amount of $103.

As of Aug. 31, 2017, the balance due and owing by the Debtor under
the Second Note, not including any attorney fees or costs incurred
by Zions Bank, was $78,199, which amount included: (i) a principal
balance due and owing in the amount of $65,753; (ii) accrued
interest in the amount of $4,381; (iii) collection costs & fees in
the amount of $7,009, and (iv) late fees in the amount of $1,056.

In addition, Zions Bank has incurred, and continues to incur,
additional fees and costs, including attorney fees and costs, in
this matter and otherwise relating to the Debtor's defaults of its
payment and other obligations to Zions Bank, which fees and costs
are also recoverable by Zions Bank under the terms and conditions
of the Zions Bank Loan Agreement.

The Debtor has informed Zions Bank that it has an immediate need
for the use of cash collateral in order to meet the current
expenses, continue operation of its business, and enhance the
possibility of a successful reorganization.  Without the funds the
Debtor would not be able to pay wages, salaries, operating expenses
or purchase inventory and supplies.  In an effort to avoid
immediate and irreparable harm to its business and chapter 11
bankruptcy estate, the Debtor has requested that Zions Bank consent
to the Debtor's use of the cash collateral in the ordinary course
the operation of the Debtor's business.

Based upon the Debtor's representations, Zions Bank has agreed,
subject to the terms and conditions of the Agreement, to consent to
the Debtor's use and continued use of the collateral, including the
cash collateral.  

The Debtor agrees that, as of the date of the Agreement, Zions Bank
has a valid, enforceable, and fully secured claim against the
Debtor in the bankruptcy case in full amount of the Zions Bank Loan
Balance -- $82,777 as of Aug. 31, 2017.  The Debtor also agrees
that Zions Bank is entitled to have the foregoing amounts augmented
by any and all additional interest, fees, and costs -- including
reasonable attorney fees and costs -- to the extent allowed by 11
U.S.C. Section 506(b), all without the need for Zions Bank to file
any proof of claim in the case.

In exchange for, and as adequate protection to, Zions Bank for the
Debtor's possession and use of the Collateral during the pendency
of the case, including the Debtor's use of the cash collateral
during the Agreement Term and according to the terms and conditions
of the Agreement, the Debtor agrees to make monthly adequate
protection payments to Zions Bank in the amount of $4,100 each,
starting on or before Oct. 2, 2017, and due on or before the 1st
day of each month thereafter, as further set forth in the
Agreement.  Approval of the Agreement by the Court will not be a
condition precedent to the Debtor's payment obligations under the
Agreement.

As further adequate protection and a condition of continued use of
the credit under the Zions Bank Loan Agreement, the Agreement, and
the Debtor's use of the cash collateral; to secure against
diminution in the value of the collateral and cash collateral; and
to secure the Debtor's obligations under the Zions Bank Loan
Agreement and the Agreement, the Debtor grants to Zions a
continuing post-petition first priority security interest in and
lien upon the same collateral set forth in the Security Agreement
and which the Debtor's estate acquires after the Petition Date upon
which Zions Bank had a prepetition lien.  The Post-Petition Liens
will be deemed valid, enforceable and duly perfected as of the
Petition Date and no filing or other act in accordance with
applicable non-bankruptcy law will be necessary to create or
perfect the liens and security interests.

As further adequate protection, the Debtor acknowledges that in any
sale of or which includes the collateral under 11 U.S.C. Section
363 (whether pursuant to a plan of reorganization or otherwise),
Zions Bank will have the right to credit bid pursuant to 11 U.S.C.
Section 363(k) with respect to the collateral.

The Debtor further agrees that any plan of reorganization proposed
by the Debtor, either by itself or in conjunction with any third
party, will provide Zions Bank with an allowed fully secured claim,
including all unpaid principal, interest, late fees and other
charges, including any attorney fees or costs incurred by Zions
Bank relating to the Zions Bank Loan Agreement through Aug. 31,
2017, in the amount of $82,776.75, plus additional interest, fees,
and other costs -- including reasonable attorney fees and costs
incurred by Zions Bank after Aug. 31, 2017, to the extent
authorized and allowed by 11 U.S.C, Section 506(b).  Interest on
the Zions Bank Claim will accrue at the fixed rate of 6% per annum.
The Zions Bank Claim will be paid in full through equal monthly
installment payments in the amount of $4,100 each, starting Oct. 2,
2017, and continuing each month thereafter until Oct. 1, 2019,
along with a final payment for any amount still left due and owing
on the Zions Bank Claim, if any, by Nov. 1, 2019.

11 trustees and post-confirmation estates.  Funding proceeds can be
used by individual litigants to defray the cost of expensive and
lengthy litigation, or to hedge against an adverse judgment or
appeal ruling.  For undercapitalized trust estates, money can be
made available immediately for distribution to creditors, to meet
administrative and operating costs of professionals, or for costly
pre-litigation or pre-confirmation claims analyses.

"While we've funded bankruptcy-related matters before at Bentham,
we felt an opportunity existed to create a focused unit to cover
the broader waterfront of corporate insolvencies and financial
restructurings," said Allison Chock, Bentham's U.S. Chief
Investment Officer.  "Today's bankruptcy matters are among the most
complex and expensive to litigate due to the multitude of claims,
the time to resolution and the number of competing interests
involved.  And they're frequently the source of contentious
litigation, which can be burdensome for bankruptcy estates and
litigation trusts to carry.  Bentham has substantial capital to
commit to assist claimants and counsel in maximizing the value of
potential recoveries in bankruptcy cases."

Bentham also provides funding to law firms that take matters on
contingency, an arrangement increasingly popular among clients and
generally accepted by bankruptcy judges.  Law firm funding helps
provide clients with access to high-quality counsel and trial
experts.  Lawyers taking cases on contingency can share their fee
risk with Bentham, positioning them to win more engagements and
increase financial returns.

"Bentham is one of the world's premier commercial litigation
funders," Mr. Epstein said.  "I'm excited to help launch and lead
this new platform, which should attract great interest in the
bankruptcy community as an important source of capital for debtors
and creditors alike, as well as trustees, estate representatives
and their law firms.  It's all about maximizing the value of the
bankruptcy estate, and leveling the playing field in litigation
against well-heeled defendants."

Mr. Epstein has extensive debtor and creditor-side restructuring
experience across multiple industries both in the U.S. and abroad.
A graduate of Brooklyn Law School, he has taught bankruptcy law at
Cardozo Law School, advised and served on distressed company
boards, authored numerous articles and spoken on panels about
bankruptcy-related topics.  He is also certified as an insolvency
and restructuring advisor by the AIRA.

The new bankruptcy offering adds a key target for funding as
Bentham continues to broaden its U.S. presence.  Earlier this year,
its parent company IMF Bentham Limited, one of the world's oldest
and most successful commercial litigation funders, launched a $200
million vehicle expressly to finance its growing portfolio of U.S.
cases and investments.  More recently, the Company launched A$150
million of additional investment vehicles to fund investments in
Australia, Asia, Canada and Europe.

Charlie Gollow, Bentham's U.S. Chief Executive, said, "We think
this is an excellent time to devote more resources and capital to
restructurings.  Despite the health of the U.S. economy, there are
stresses in numerous sectors from retail and energy to healthcare
and technology.  We've fielded frequent opportunities in the past
several years to fund law firms and claimants involved in
insolvency disputes -- with the addition of Ken Epstein and a
dedicated platform, we expect to see bankruptcy matters become a
more prominent part of our U.S. portfolio.  At the same time, we
welcome new corporate counsel Chris Young to help serve our
in-house legal needs as we continue to grow our American
business."

                  Background on Christopher Young

In his new role as Corporate Counsel, Christopher Young will advise

leveraged credit facilities and corporate restructurings.  He also
has experience on employment matters and strategic initiatives.

He previously spent over five years as Vice President and Counsel
with Royal Bank of Scotland, where he advised RBS' U.S. Financing &
Risk Solutions and UK Commercial & Private Banking franchises,
while covering general U.S. corporate matters.  Before joining RBS,

and Carter Ledyard & Milburn LLP.  A graduate of Yale University,

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.

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

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

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

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