1031 TAX: Ch. 11 Trustee Wants Court to Approve $92MM Settlement
----------------------------------------------------------------
Gerard A. McHale, the Chapter 11 trustee overseeing 1031 Tax Group
LLC's cases, has asked for court approval of five groups of
settlements with insurers, former 1031 attorneys, former owners of
1031 intermediaries and Wachovia Bank NA, which will provide a
total of $92 million in funding for 1031 Tax's Chapter 11 plan.

As reported by the TCR on Sept. 4, 2009, the Bankruptcy Court is
scheduled to convene a hearing on October 7 to consider approval
of the liquidating plan proposed by the Chapter 11 trustee of 1031
Tax Group.  Creditors entitled to vote on the Plan have until
September 25 to submit their ballots.

Funding for distributions to creditors under the Plan is primarily
derived from settlements of claims against various firms and
entities in connection with the alleged fraudulent activities and
misappropriation of funds by Edward Okun that led to the collapse
of 1031 Tax Group and its units in 2007.

Under the Plan, holders of general unsecured claims aggregating
$150 million will recover 35% of their claims.  Holders of these
claims identified as "exchangers" will recover up to 44% after
giving effect to a class action agreement.  Creditors that have
higher rank to unsecured creditors will receiver full recovery.
Holders of equity interests won't get anything.

On the effective date, a liquidating trust will be formed to
implement the settlement agreements, and to pursue causes of
action.  The projected cash balance of the Liquidation Trust as of
the effective date is $78,970,000.  This amount will be funded by
the $70,277,500 collectively payable under the settlement
agreements plus cash on hand of $5,897,000 and an anticipated tax
refund of $2,800,000.

The settlement agreements reached by the Chapter 11 trustee are:

  * Kluger Peretz Kaplan & Berlin, PL, has been probed by
    the Chapter 11 trustee for potential claims in connection
    with legal services provided to the Debtors prepetition.  The
    Debtors' estates will net a total of $12,380,000 from the
    settlement.

  * Claims from "Errors and Omissions" policies will be settled
    by selling the policies back to the carriers for $4.6 million.

  * Insurers that provided for commercial crime policies have
    agreed to pay a collective amount of $23,250,000 for the
    benefit of the estates.  The commercial crime policies
    generally covered the 1031 Debtors for direct losses of
    covered property resulting from "Employee Theft" or "Employee
    Dishonesty," as those terms are defined in the policies.

  * Certain entities have agreed to settle the Trustee's claims
    against them for fraudulent transfers arising from receiving
    excessive consideration of the sale of certain assets and
    businesses to the Debtors and breach of fiduciary duties
    in connection with the transactions.  The Former owners
    have agreed to pay a total of $2,112,500: (i) Hazel, Dowdall,
    Subrt and Livesey will pay $107,500 in connection with the
    sale of Atlantic Exchange Company's assets to the Debtors,
    (ii) Bennett Davis will pay $400,000 in connection with the
    sale of all of NIL's assets to 1031 Tax Group, (iii) McCabe
    Group will pay $1.2 million for the sale of the IXG QI
    business to 1031 Tax Group, (iv) Pajonas and Regal Entities
    will pay $200,000, with $20,000 paid immediately and the
    balance payable over three years, without interest, in
    connection with the sale of the SOS business to the Debtors,
    (v) Shefmans $10,000 for the sale of REES; and (vi) Allred and
    Dashiell a total of $325,000 for the l031 Advance business.

  * Michael J. Rosen, Esq., at Michael J. Rosen PA, was counsel
    to one or more of the 1031 Debtors.  To settle potential
    claims, the sum of $925,000 will be paid to the estates from
    an insurance policy.

  * Wachovia Bank N.A. has agreed to pay $45 million to settle
    claims by the Chapter 11 trustee and a class action commenced
    by exchangers.  Wachovia was sued for allegations that it
    assisted Mr. Okun in misappropriating funds.  Pursuant to
    the class action agreement, 60% of the settlement amount is
    allocated to the estates while 40% will be allocated to the
    plaintiffs at the class suit.

The Chapter 11 trustee has pending lawsuits against, or
settlements with, JPS NH LLC, Boulder Capital LLC, WH Hialeah
Investors V, LLC, and Citibank, N.A.  The Chapter 11 trustee has
also commenced an action against Mr. Okun seeking a judgment in
the amount of $150 million.

The cash the Liquidating Trust will hold on the effective date of
the Plan will be applied first to fund an aggregate of $25,848,600
for (i) allowed administrative claims totalling $670,000, (ii)
allowed priority tax claims of $32,600, (iii) allowed fee claims
totalling $19.8 million, (iv) allowed priority non-tax claims
totalling $346,000 and (v) a reserve of $5 million to permit the
Liquidation Trust fund ongoing litigation and other expenses.  The
remaining $53,121,400 will be used to fund distributions for
general unsecured claims.

The Plan is being co-proposed by debtor IPofA Shreveport
Industrial Park, LLC.  The Plan also provides for the
reorganization of IPofA Shreveport, which owns the Mineral
Servitude (the below-ground rights to exploit the shale gas
deposits in a property in Shreveport, LA).  The Liquidating
Trustee will be the sole member of IpofA Shreveport.  Reorganized
IPofA Shreveport's activities will relate solely to maximizing any
revenues that may be potentially generated or derived from the
Mineral Servitude.

ABUNDANT RENEWABLE: Helix Signs Definitive Pact to Acquire Assets
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Helix Wind Corporation has executed a definitive purchase
agreement to acquire Abundant Renewable Energy, LLC and Renewable
Energy Engineering, LLC, of Newberg, Oregon.  The acquisition of
ARE will bring two additional wind turbines, the 2.5 kilowatt
ARE110 and the 10 kilowatt ARE442 to Helix's portfolio.

According to the terms of the agreement, Helix Wind will purchase
all of the assets of ARE and REE in consideration for an aggregate
purchase price between $4 million to $6.5 million, depending on
the fulfillment of certain financial projections.  Helix will also
assume certain liabilities associated with the purchased assets.
At the closing of the acquisition, Helix will pay ARE $2.2 million
in cash. Of this payment, up to a maximum of $345,000 may be used
to pay certain claims of ARE principals and their affiliates.  At
the closing, Helix will also issue shares of common stock worth
$1.8 million to ARE that are to be valued at the average closing
bid price per share for the immediate prior 30-day period.
Additional shares may be issued if certain milestones are met.

The closing of the acquisitions is dependent on several
conditions, including a capital raise by Helix of $5 million and
approval of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Oregon, which is
supervising ARE's bankruptcy.

"We're looking forward to completing these acquisitions quickly
and efficiently," commented Helix Wind Chairman and President
Scott Weinbrandt. "Bringing ARE and REE aboard not only adds a
line of horizontal axis turbine products to our existing portfolio
but also adds exceptional staff, design, manufacturing, sales and
service, power electronics and software to the Helix brand. We're
extremely enthusiastic about Helix Winds's future and will
continue to provide comprehensive renewable energy solutions to a
variety of markets."

Helix Wind Corp. -- http://www.helixwind.com/-- a global
renewable energy company, is engaged in the design, manufacturing
and sale of small wind vertical axis turbine designed to generate
300W, 1kW, 2.0kW, 4.0kW, and 50kW of clean, renewable electricity.

ACCURIDE CORP: Sun Capital Extends Forbearance Until Sept. 30
-------------------------------------------------------------
Accuride Corporation said September 15 it has entered into an
agreement with the lenders of its Fourth Amended and Restated
Credit Agreement that effectively extends the temporary waiver
period granted by the lenders as of July 1, 2009, until
September 30, subject to certain early termination provisions.
The Third Temporary Waiver Agreement addresses any failure to
comply with certain obligations under the Credit Agreement and any
failure to pay interest to holders of Accuride's 8.5% Senior
Subordinated Notes due 2015.

"This extension demonstrates our lenders' on-going commitment to
assisting in the development of a capital structure that will
ensure the long-term health of the Company," said Bill Lasky,
Accuride's President, CEO, and Chairman of the Board.

As consideration for the Waiver, Accuride agreed to provide
detailed and regular financial information to a Steering Committee
that was formed to represent the lenders in their negotiations
with Accuride and to comply with other restrictions, including
restrictions on incurring additional debt, making investments and
selling assets, as well as specified minimum liquidity
requirements.

                            The Waivers

On September 15, 2009, Accuride Corp. entered into a Third
Temporary Waiver Agreement with respect to its Fourth Amended and
Restated Credit Agreement, dated as of January 31, 2005, as
amended, among the Company, Accuride Canada Inc., the lenders
party thereto, the administrative agent for the Lenders, and the
other agents party thereto.

The Lenders have agreed to continue to waive the Company's non-
compliance with the financial covenants under the Credit Agreement
for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2009 and other defaults.
The Waiver Period terminates on September 30, 2009, unless
terminated earlier as the result of, among other things: (i) an
event of default under the Credit Agreement that is not a
Scheduled Default or an Additional Default, (ii) payment by the
Company of the Senior Subordinated Notes Interest Payment, (iii)
the exercise of any rights or remedies under the Notes Indenture
as a result of any "Default" or "Event of Default" under, and as
defined in, the Notes Indenture, or (iv) the failure by the
Company or the subsidiary guarantors to comply with the terms and
provisions of the Third Temporary Waiver.  The Waiver also
terminates if the Company has not entered into a plan support,
lock-up or similar restructuring agreement with one of its
principal stakeholder groups by September 25, 2009, although this
deadline may be extended with the approval of the bank steering
committee.

Under the Third Temporary Waiver: (i) interest on advances and all
outstanding obligations under the Credit Agreement will accrue at
an annual rate of 2.0% plus the otherwise applicable rate during
the Third Temporary Waiver Period, (ii) the Company and its
subsidiaries must comply with certain restrictions on incurring
additional debt, making investments and selling assets and (iii)
the Company must comply with specified minimum liquidity
requirements.

An affiliate of Sun Capital Securities Group, LLC is one of the
lenders that approved the Third Temporary Waiver.  Sun Capital and
its affiliates hold roughly 32.2% of the Company's common stock on
a fully diluted basis and benefit from certain corporate
governance rights.

                     Senior Subordinated Notes
                       Forbearance Agreement

Pursuant to the Forbearance Agreement filed on September 3, 2009
by and among the Company and certain holders of the Company's 8.5%
Senior Subordinated Notes due 2015 issued pursuant to an Indenture
dated as of January 31, 2005 among the Company, certain guarantors
and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company (f.k.a. The Bank of
New York Trust Company, N.A.), as Trustee, the Company is required
to deliver to the Note holders on or before September 15, 2009 --
Milestone Date -- (a) a final term sheet in form and substance
satisfactory to Holders; and (b) a written acknowledgement of the
Steering Committee of the lenders under the Senior Credit
Facilities affirming that the Final Term Sheet is in form and
substance satisfactory to such lenders.  On September 15, 2009,
the Company received a letter from Note holders representing a
majority of the principal amount of Notes outstanding informing
the Company that the Note holders have extended the Milestone Date
to September 25, 2009, which coincides with the September 25th
deadline under the Third Temporary Waiver.

The Company is proactively evaluating restructuring alternatives
to address ongoing liquidity and financing concerns and is
continuing discussions with its stakeholder groups.  The Company
expects to use the term of the Third Temporary Waiver and the
Forbearance Agreement, as amended by the Extension Letter, to
continue working toward implementing one or more restructuring
alternatives, and views the Third Temporary Waiver and the
Extension Letter as additional steps in a broader transaction with
its creditors, although the nature and parameters of this
transaction are not yet defined.

AMERICAN INT'L: New CEO Rebuffed by Board on Corporate Jet Use
--------------------------------------------------------------
Robert Benmosche, chief executive officer of American
International Group Inc., was rebuffed by the insurer's board
after saying he should be allowed personal use of the bailed-out
company's aircraft, Hugh Son and Christine Harper at Bloomberg
reported, citing two people familiar with the matter.

The board said flights will be limited to business purposes
because creating an exception would require approaching the
Treasury Department for approval, said one of the people, who
asked not to be identified because the talks were private.  AIG
posted an expense guideline on its Web site this week saying that
personal use of corporate jets is "strictly prohibited."

Bloomberg relates that AIG, which was rescued a year ago with a
U.S. lifeline that swelled to $182.5 billion, has to sell assets
to repay its government loans under the direction of Mr.
Benmosche, who took the CEO post last month.

According to Bloomberg News, AIG has disclosed agreements to
divest assets for about $9.8 billion since it was bailed out by
the U.S. government in September 2008:

Based in New York, American International Group, Inc., is the
leading international insurance organization with operation in
more than 130 countries and jurisdictions.  AIG companies serve
commercial, institutional and individual customers through the
most extensive worldwide property-casualty and life insurance
networks of any insurer.  In addition, AIG companies are leading
providers of retirement services, financial services and asset
management around the world.  AIG's common stock is listed on the
New York Stock Exchange, as well as the stock exchanges in Ireland
and Tokyo.

In September 2008, AIG experienced a liquidity crunch when its
credit ratings were downgraded below "AA" levels by Standard &
Poor's, Moody's Investors Service and Fitch Ratings.  On
September 16, 2008, the Federal Reserve Bank created an
$85 billion credit facility to enable AIG to meet increased
collateral obligations consequent to the ratings downgrade, in
exchange for the issuance of a stock warrant to the Fed for 79.9%
of the equity of AIG.  The credit facility was eventually
increased to as much as $182.5 billion.  AIG has sold a number of
its subsidiaries and other assets to pay down loans received, and
continues to seek buyers of its assets.

The Troubled Company Reporter reported on March 4, 2009, that
Moody's Investors Service confirmed the A3 senior unsecured debt
and Prime-1 short-term debt ratings of American International
Group.  AIG's subordinated debt rating has been downgraded to Ba2
from Baa1.  The rating outlook for AIG is negative.  This rating
action follows AIG's announcement of net losses of $62 billion for
the fourth quarter and $99 billion for the full year of 2008,
along with a revised restructuring plan supported by the U.S.
Treasury and the Federal Reserve.  This concludes a review for
possible downgrade that was initiated on September 15, 2008.

ASAT HOLDINGS: S&P Affirms and Withdraws 'D' Ratings
----------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its 'D' ratings on
ASAT Holdings Ltd. and then withdrew the ratings as S&P has only
limited information on the financial restructuring of ASAT's
obligations concerning its senior unsecured notes and purchase
money loan facility, or on the company's financial performance.

S&P lowered the rating on ASAT and the issue rating on its senior

payment.  ASAT is a small operator in the highly fragmented and
competitive semiconductor assembly and test sector.

AVAGO TECHNOLOGIES: S&P Raises Corporate Credit Rating to 'BB'
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it raised its corporate
credit rating on Avago Technologies Finance Pte. Ltd. to 'BB' from
'BB+' and removed the rating from CreditWatch, where it had been
placed on Aug. 3, 2009.  The outlook is stable.

S&P also raised the issue-level rating on the company's first-lien
revolving credit facility to 'BBB-' (two notches above the
corporate credit rating) from 'BB+'.  S&P raised the issue-level
rating on the company's senior unsecured and senior floating-rate
notes to 'BB' (the same as the corporate credit rating) from
'BB-', while raising the issue-level rating on the subordinated
debt to 'B+' from 'B'.  The recovery rating on the company's
first-lien revolving credit facility remains at '1', the recovery
rating on the company's senior unsecured and senior floating-rate
notes remain at '3', and the recovery ratings on the company's
subordinated debt remain at '6'.

"The rating action reflects Avago's pending $250 million debt

BARZEL FINCO: Moody's Withdraws 'D' Default Rating on Bankruptcy
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service withdrew all ratings for Barzel Finco
Inc.  This action follows the September 15, 2009 announcement that
Barzel Industries Inc. and its US subsidiaries, including Barzel
Finco Inc, had filed voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter
11 of the Bankruptcy Code, and that the Canadian subsidiary of the
Company has filed an application with the Canadian Court seeking
relief.  Moody's has withdrawn the ratings because the issuer has
entered bankruptcy.

These ratings were withdrawn:

* Probability of Default Rating of D
* Corporate Family Rating of Ca
* Senior Secured Note Rating of Ca (LGD 4; 69%)
* Speculative Grade Liquidity rating of SGL-4
* Negative outlook

The last rating action was on June 15, 2009 when the probability
of default rating of Barzel Finco Inc. was lowered to D from Ca
following the expiration of a 30-day grace period on the company's
$315 million 11.5% senior secured notes.

Headquartered in Norwood, Massachusetts, Barzel Industries
(formerly known as Novamerican Steel Inc.) processes,
manufactures, and distributes carbon steel, stainless steel, and
aluminum products primarily in the United States and Canada.  The
company operates five manufacturing facilities, five tubing mills,
five distribution facilities and 2 processing facilities.  Barzel
Finco Inc. is an intermediate holding company where the asset
based bank revolving credit facility and notes reside.


BASELINE OIL: Gets Nod for Grant Thornton as Financial Advisors
---------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas
authorized, on an interim basis, Baseline Oil & Gas Corp. to

Baseline Oil & Gas Corp. is an independent oil and natural gas
company engaged in the exploration, production, development,
acquisition and exploitation of natural gas and crude oil

Gulf Coast, and the New Albany Shale play located in Southern
Indiana.  Its core properties cover approximately 39,945 net
acres. As of December 31, 2008, the Company's proved reserves were
60.2 billion cubic feet equivalent (Bcfe), of which 46.5% were
natural gas and 68.2% were proved developed.  During the year
ended December 31, 2008, it produced 2.8 Bcfe and had a proved
reserve reduction of 6.7 Bcfe as a result of reserve revisions.

Baseline Oil filed a voluntary petition for reorganization under
Chapter on Aug. 28, 2009 (Bankr. S.D. Tex. Case No. 09-36291).
Attorneys at Thompson & Knight LLP represent Baseline Oil in its

BEAZER HOMES: 94.5% of Stock Options, SSARs Tendered
----------------------------------------------------
Beazer Homes USA, Inc., filed Amendment No. 3 to amend and
supplement the Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO filed with
the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 4, 2009, as
previously amended on August 31, and September 3, relating to the
Company's offer to certain employees to exchange some or all of
their outstanding stock options or stock-settled stock
appreciation rights, subject to the terms and conditions set forth
in the Offer to Exchange Certain Outstanding Options and Stock-
Settled Stock Appreciation Rights for New Restricted Stock Awards,
dated August 4, 2009.

The Exchange Offer expired at 5:00 p.m., Eastern Time, on
September 11, 2009.  Pursuant to the Exchange Offer, 84 eligible
stock options and SSARs, relating to an aggregate of 292,969
shares of Beazer Homes common stock, were tendered, representing
roughly 94.5% of the total number of shares of common stock
subject to stock options and SSARs eligible for exchange in the
Exchange Offer.  On September 14, Beazer Homes granted an
aggregate of 90,405 shares of restricted stock in exchange for the
eligible stock options and SSARs surrendered in the Exchange
Offer.

                      About Beazer Homes USA

Beazer Homes USA, Inc., headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, is one
of the country's 10 largest single-family homebuilders with
continuing operations in Arizona, California, Delaware, Florida,
Georgia, Indiana, Maryland, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, North
Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and
Virginia.  Beazer Homes is listed on the New York Stock Exchange
under the ticker symbol "BZH."

At June 30, 2009, Beazer had $2.10 billion in total assets and
$1.94 billion in total liabilities, resulting in $159.7 million in
stockholders' equity.  Cash and cash equivalents as of June 30,
2009, was $464.9 million, compared to $559.5 million at March 31,
2009, and $314.2 million at June 30, 2008.  During the quarter,
the Company repurchased $115.5 million of senior notes for an
aggregate purchase price of $58.2 million or an average price of
50.4%, resulting in a gain on the extinguishment of debt of
$55.2 million.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on August 21, 2009,
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its corporate credit
rating on Beazer Homes to 'CCC' from 'SD' (selective default).
The outlook is negative.  The issue-level rating on the senior
unsecured notes remains unchanged at 'D' reflecting S&P's
expectation that additional discounted repurchases or a similar
restructuring are likely.  S&P's '5' recovery rating is also
unchanged and indicates its expectation for a modest (10%-30%)
recovery in the event of default.

S&P has said the repurchases constituted a distressed
restructuring given the steep discount and the significant
relative size of transactions.


BERNARD MADOFF: Court Sets Feb. 2 Hearing on Victims' Claims
------------------------------------------------------------
According to Erik Larson at Bloomberg, Judge Burton Lifland set a
Feb. 2 hearing to consider either approving or rejecting Irving H.
Picard's method for calculating victims' claims.  Judge Lifland
approved ordered Trustee Irving Picard to file by Oct. 16 a list
of Bernard Madoff's victims who are challenging his calculation
for "net equity."

Judge Lifland last week approved a request by Mr. Picard for a
procedure for first determining the methodology to be used later
in fixing the amount of creditors' claims.

In last week's ruling, Judge Lifland barred an individual customer
from filing a lawsuit to determine the proper amount of its claim.
He said that allowing a group of claimants to proceed with a
lawsuit to determine the "net equity issue" that will apply to all
customer claims will yield an incomplete record that might result
in piecemeal litigation on this issue.  Instead, customers must
adhere to the claims-determination procedure set up by the
Bankruptcy Court early in the case, and modified by Mr. Picard.

"With more than 15,000 claims filed in the Madoff proceeding and
multi-billions of dollars at stake, the issue of how the Trustee
determines claimants' 'net equity' for distribution purposes is a
central question to be determined in this SIPA liquidation," Judge
Lifland said.  A copy of the Decision is available for free at:

     http://bankrupt.com/misc/Madoff_ClaimsSkedDecision

As reported by the TCR on Aug. 31, 2009, Mr. Picard asked the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York to enter a
scheduling order to resolve the "net equity" issue in computing
for investors' allowed claims.

Under the Securities Investor Protection Act of 1970, 15 U.S.C.
Sec. 78aaa et seq., Mr. Picard is responsible for recovering and
distributing customer property to BLMIS's customers, assessing
claims, and liquidating any other assets of the firm for the
benefit of the estate and its creditors.  The statutory framework
for the satisfaction of Customer Claims in a SIPA liquidation
proceeding provides that customers share pro rata in customer
property to the extent of their Net Equity (as defined in Section
78lll(11) of SIPA, 15 U.S.C. Sec. 78lll(11)), and to the extent
that a customer's Net Equity exceeds his or her ratable share of
customer property, the Securities Investor Protection Corporation
will advance funds to the SIPA trustee up to $500,000 for
securities for that customer.

Certain claimants disagree with Mr. Picard as to the construction
of the term Net Equity and how that term should be applied to
determine the amount of the valid Customer Claim of each claimant.

It is the Trustee's position that for purposes of determining
customer claims, each BLMIS customer's Net Equity will be
determined by crediting the amount of cash deposited by the
customer into his BLMIS account, less any amounts already
withdrawn by him from his BLMIS customer account -- cash in/cash
out approach.

Various claimants have asserted that Net Equity should be
determined on the basis of each claimant's balance as shown on
their November 30, 2008 account statement provided by BLMIS or,
alternatively, that the calculation should reflect the time value
of money deposited by each claimant and/or interest, unjust
enrichment or other factors.

Furthermore, two adversary proceedings were filed challenging the
Trustee's definition of "net equity": Less, et al. v. Picard, Adv.
Pro. No. 09 CV 1265 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y.) (BRL) (seeking class action
relief); and Peskin, et al. v. Picard, Adv. Pro. No. 09 CV 1272
(Bankr. S.D.N.Y.) (BRL).

The Trustee has obtained approval of this schedule:

   A. On or before October 16, 2009, the Trustee will file
      motion(s) to affirm certain customer claims determinations
      as to which objections have been filed, specifically with
      regard to the Trustee's Net Equity determinations.

   B. In accordance with the Claims Procedures Order, the
      Motion(s) will identify those claimants who have filed
      objections to his determination of their customer claims for
      which he intends to schedule a hearing on the Net Equity
      issue.

   C. In support of the Motion(s), the Trustee shall file a
      memorandum of law and supporting papers setting forth the
      factual and legal bases for the Trustee's construction of
      the term Net Equity on the same date.

   D. SIPC will file any brief with reference to the Motion(s) on
      or before October 16, 2009.

   E. The Objecting Claimants will file their responses to the
      Motion(s) on or before November 13, 2009.

   F. Any Interested Parties who wish to file a brief in
      opposition to the Trustee's Motion(s) will file their briefs
      on or before November 13, 2009.

   G. Any Interested Parties who wish to file a brief in support
      of the Trustee's Motion(s) will file their briefs on or
      before December 11, 2009.

   H. To the extent that Interested Parties who filed briefs in
      raise issues, factual or legal, that have not been
      previously raised, Interested Parties who filed a brief in
      opposition to the Trustee's Motion(s) may file a reply brief
      addressing the issues on or before December 21, 2009.

   I. The Trustee and SIPC will file any reply papers on or
      Before January 15, 2010.

   J. The Court will hold a hearing on the Motion on February 2,
      2010, at 10:00 a.m., or such other time as the Court
      determines.

                      About Bernard L. Madoff

Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC was a market maker in
U.S. stocks, including all of the S&P 500 and more than 350 Nasdaq
stocks.  The firm moved large blocks of stock for institutional
clients by splitting up orders or arranging off-exchange
transactions between parties.  It also performed clearing and
settlement services.  Clients included brokerages, banks, and
other financial institutions.  In addition, Madoff Securities
managed assets for high-net-worth individuals, hedge funds, and
other institutional investors.

The firm is being liquidated in the aftermath of a fraud scandal
involving founder Bernard L. Madoff.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on December 15, 2008,
the Securities and Exchange Commission charged Mr. Madoff and his
investment firm with securities fraud for a multi-billion dollar
Ponzi scheme that he perpetrated on advisory clients of his firm.
The estimated losses from Mr. Madoff's fraud were allegedly at
least US$50 billion.

Also on December 15, 2008, the Honorable Louis A. Stanton of the
U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York granted
the application of the Securities Investor Protection Corporation
for a decree adjudicating that the customers of BLMIS are in need
of the protection afforded by the Securities Investor Protection
Act of 1970.  Irving H. Picard, Esq., was appointed as trustee for
the liquidation of BLMIS, and Baker & Hostetler LLP was appointed
as counsel.

Judge Denny Chin of the U.S. District Court for the Southern
District of New York on June 29, 2009, sentenced Mr. Madoff to
150 years of life imprisonment for defrauding investors.


BLOCKBUSTER INC: Fitch Expects to Rate $340 Mil. Notes at 'B/RR2'
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings expects to rate Blockbuster's offering of up to
$340 million of senior secured notes due 2014 at 'B/RR2'.  Pending
the successful completion of the offering, Fitch will withdraw the
ratings on the $250 million bank credit facility.

In addition, Fitch has affirmed BBI's ratings:

  -- Long-term Issuer Default Rating at 'CCC';
  -- $301 million term B loan at 'B/RR2';
  -- $300 million senior subordinated notes at 'C/RR6'.

Pro forma for the offering, the company will have approximately
$941.2 million of debt outstanding.

The successful completion of the notes offering will alleviate the
liquidity concerns including requirements under the $250 million
revolving credit facility, such as the amortization and
prepayments over the next 18 months totaling approximately
$311 million and the constraints on capital investments, which
could hinder the execution of the company's operating strategy.
BBI plans to use the proceeds of the notes to repay all
indebtedness outstanding under the company's revolving credit
facility and its revolving asset-based loan facility in Canada, as
well as fund fees and expenses of the transaction and for general
corporate purposes.  In addition, BBI intends to pursue an
amendment under its credit agreement, whereby the lenders under
the term B loan facility will be given the option to purchase the
notes in exchange for repayment of their loans, or to amend and
extend the final maturity of their loans from August 20, 2011 to
May 31, 2012, with a revised loan amortization payment schedule
and an increased applicable interest rate margin.  The amendment
will also include changes to the financial covenants and other
terms.  As a result of these actions, BBI will not need to address
any debt maturity until 2012.

The ratings reflect BBI's leading market position in the home
video rental industry with $4.7 billion in revenues as of July 5,
2009, and an approximately 37% market share in the home video
rental market in 2008.  While Fitch recognizes the improvement in
BBI's EBITDA to $289 million in the last twelve months ended
July 5, 2009, from $176 million in 2007, the company still needs
to establish a proven track record of growing the business.  Fitch
remains concern about the company's operating model and pressures
on its business due to the changing industry dynamics.  In
addition, BBI faces intense competition from various channels.  In
its store-based business, BBI competes with other video-rental
chains, discounters and specialty retailers.  In its online
business, the company competes with other online video rental
providers as well as competing technologies such as video-on-
demand, pay-per-view and digital video records.  As a result,
Fitch expects BBI's same store sales to remain pressured in the
second half of 2009 and 2010, but cost reduction initiatives
should help offset some of the pressures.  This will lead to 2009
adjusted debt/EBITDAR and EBITDAR coverage of interest and rent of
around 6.6 times (x) and 1.3x, respectively, which will be
slightly weaker than the credit metrics in 2008.

The Recovery Ratings reflect Fitch's recovery expectations in a
distressed scenario.  Fitch's recovery analysis assumes an
enterprise value of $537 million in a distressed scenario.  This
is based on an EBITDA discount of approximately 26% and a market
multiple of 2.5x.  Applying this value across the pro forma
capital structure, which consists of $301.2 million of term B
loan, $340 million of new senior secured notes and $300 million of
senior subordinated notes, results in superior recovery prospects
(71%-90%) and a rating of 'B/RR2' for the term B loan.  These
securities are secured by land, buildings, improvements,
equipment, furniture, permits, licenses, subleases, and real
estate tax refunds owned by BBI as well as collateralized by
pledges of stock of all of the company's domestic subsidiaries and
65% of the stock of certain international subsidiaries.  The notes
are also rated 'B/RR2' reflecting superior recovery prospects
(71%-90%).  The notes are guaranteed by BBI's domestic
subsidiaries that guarantee its indebtedness under the credit
agreement.  The notes and the guarantees will be secured by a
first-priority lien, having equal priority to liens granted under
BBI's term B loan on substantially all of the company's and the
guarantors' assets which secure the loans under the credit
agreement.  The senior subordinated notes are rated 'C/RR6',
reflecting poor recovery prospects (0%-10%) in a distressed case.


BLOCKBUSTER INC: Seeks Extension of Term Loan B, Covenant Changes
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Blockbuster Inc. on September 14, 2009, announced its intention to
implement a proposed amendment of its credit agreement and an
extension of its Term Loan B Facility.

The amendment to Blockbuster's credit agreement is expected to,

BLOCKBUSTER INC: To Issue $340MM Senior Notes in Private Offering
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Blockbuster Inc. intends to offer up to $340 million aggregate
principal amount of senior secured notes due 2014 in a private
offering that is exempt from the registration requirements of the
Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

The Notes will be senior secured obligations of the Company and
will be guaranteed by the Company's domestic subsidiaries that
guarantee the Company's indebtedness under the credit agreement.
The Notes and the guarantees will be secured by a first-priority
lien, having equal priority to liens granted under the Company's
credit agreement on substantially all of the Company's and the
guarantors' assets which secure the loans under the credit
agreement.  The Notes will be offered in the United States only to
qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the
Securities Act, and to persons outside the United States only
pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act.

The Company plans to use the proceeds of the Notes to repay all
indebtedness outstanding under the Company's revolving credit
facility and its revolving asset-based loan facility in Canada,
fund fees and expenses of the transaction and for general
corporate purposes.  In addition, the Company intends to pursue an
amendment under its credit agreement, whereby the lenders under
the term loan facility that are qualified institutional buyers or
persons outside the United States will be given the option to
purchase Notes in exchange for repayment of their loans under the
term loan facility, or to amend and extend the final maturity of
their loans from August 20, 2011, to May 31, 2012, with a revised
loan amortization payment schedule and an increased applicable
interest rate margin.  The amendment will also include changes to
the financial covenants and other terms.

The Notes will not be registered under the Securities Act and may
not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or
an applicable exemption from registration requirements. This press
release is neither an offer to sell nor the solicitation of an
offer to buy the Notes or any other securities and shall not
constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in
which such offering, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.

CABI DOWNTOWN: Asks Court to Dump Chapter 11 Bankruptcy
-------------------------------------------------------
Paul Brinkmann at South Florida Business Journal reports that Bank
of America has asked the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of Florida to dismiss Cabi Downtown LLC's Chapter 11
bankruptcy petition.

According to Business Journal, Cabi Downtown filed for bankruptcy
the same day BofA filed for foreclosure on the Company's
Everglades on the Bay project, which was swamped with issues like
contractor liens and reluctant buyers.  The foreclosure lawsuit
identifies the lenders behind the project as:

     -- Bank of America, owed about $50 million;
     -- Wachovia Bank, owed about $40 million;
     -- Bank of Nova Scotia, owed about $30 million;
     -- LaSalle Bank, owed about $26 million;
     -- Comerica Bank, owed about $10 million;
     -- HSBC Realty Credit Corp., owed about $50 million; and
     -- Norddeutsche Landesbank Luxembourg S.A., owed about
        $50 million.

BofA said in court documents that Cabi hasn't identified funding
to properly maintain and market the building.

Business Journal relates that U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Laurel Isicoff
set a hearing on the dismissal motion for October 7.

Aventura, Florida-based Cabi Downtown, LLC, operates a real estate
Business and owns the 49-story Everglades on the Bay condominium
in Miami.  The condominium project has 849 units in two towers,
with 60,000 square feet of retail space.  The Company filed for
Chapter 11 on Aug. 18, 2009 (Bankr. S.D. Fla. Case No. 09-27168).

efforts.  In its petition, the Debtor listed assets and debts both
ranging from $100,000,001 to $500,000,000.

CANWEST MEDIA: Forbearance Moved to Sept. 25; Lender Talks Go On
----------------------------------------------------------------
Canwest Global Communications Corp. said its subsidiary, Canwest
Media Inc., is continuing discussions with the members of an ad
hoc committee of 8% noteholders of CMI regarding a
recapitalization transaction.

The holders of the 12% senior secured notes of CMI and Canwest
Television Limited Partnership as well as CIT Business Credit
Canada Inc., the provider of a senior secured revolving asset-
based loan facility to CMI, have agreed to extend to September 25,
2009, certain milestones that were to be have been achieved by
September 11, 2009.  The date by which CMI must enter into an
agreement in respect of a recapitalization transaction has been
extended to September 25, 2009.

CMI and the members of the Ad Hoc Committee have also entered into
a further extension agreement and forbearance to September 25.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on May 26, 2009,
Canwest Media and Canwest Television and certain parties entered
into an agreement, pursuant to which the parties will purchase the
U.S. dollar equivalent of C$105 million principal amount of 12%
senior secured notes of CMI and CTLP for an aggregate purchase
price of the U.S. dollar equivalent of C$100 million.  CIT agreed
to provide a senior secured revolving ABL facility for
C$75 million to CMI.  Both transactions were expected to close
May 21, 2009.

Canwest has kept the identity of the Purchasers confidential.

Moreover, the Note Purchase Agreement provides that in the event
Canwest Media or Canwest Television seeks creditor protection
under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act or comparable
legislation, the Notes will be converted into a debtor-in-
possession financing arrangement.  The Purchasers also suggested
FTI Consulting to be appointed as monitor in the event of a CCAA
filing.

Canwest also said in May that the senior lenders under the CMI
existing credit facility extended their waiver agreement until
June 2, 2009, and also agreed to defer certain payments
aggregating roughly $10 million until June 2, which would
allow completion of the new facilities.  Additionally, Canwest
also said CMI and the members of the Ad Hoc Committee entered into
a further agreement and forbearance until June 15, subject, among
other things, to closing of the issuance of the Senior Secured
Notes.

Under the terms of the new financing arrangements, CMI originally
agreed to satisfy certain milestones within certain time frames:

     * On or before June 15, 2009, reaching an agreement in
       principle with members of the Ad Hoc Committee in respect
       of a recapitalization transaction.

     * On or before July 15, 2009, entering into a definitive
       agreement with members of the Ad Hoc Committee with respect
       to the recapitalization transaction.

CMI used proceeds from the issue and sale of the Senior Secured
Notes and from CIT's ABL facility to, among other things, repay
the current lenders all amounts owing under CMI's existing senior
credit facility and settle related obligations.

CAPITALSOURCE INC: S&P Cuts Counterparty Credit Rating to 'B+/C'
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it lowered its
ratings on CapitalSource Inc., including lowering the counterparty
credit rating to 'B+/C' from 'BB/B'.  The outlook is negative.

"The rating action reflects S&P's expectation that CapitalSource's
concentration in higher-risk loan types will cause asset-quality
deterioration through at least year-end 2010.  S&P also expect
elevated credit provisions to continue to depress profitability,
which may put downward pressure on capital levels," said Standard
& Poor's credit analyst Rian M. Pressman, CFA.

CapitalSource's loan portfolio is concentrated in higher-risk loan
types, including commercial real estate and cash-flow loans, which
comprised more than 60% of the total at June 30, 2009.  In the
second quarter, loans on nonaccrual totaled almost $900 million or
almost 9% of commercial lending assets, up more than 300 basis
points (bps) from the sequential quarter.  (In addition to loans,
commercial lending assets include an $887.6 million "A"
participation interest in CRE loans.  S&P expects this to pay off
in full.)  Net charge-offs increased by 145 bps to 5.4% (measured
on a trailing 12-month basis), reflecting particular weakness in
land, second-lien commercial mortgage, and media-related cash-flow
loans.

S&P expects asset quality to continue to weaken through at least
year-end 2010.  S&P views CRE as particularly susceptible to late-
cycle credit deterioration because of the deep recession and
uncertain credit-market conditions, which have made it difficult
for even performing borrowers to refinance.

S&P believes that the elevated credit provisions associated with
weakening asset quality will continue to depress profitability.
CapitalSource's $247 million net loss in the second quarter was
largely driven by credit provisions of $204 million and a
$137 million nonrecurring accounting charge related to a valuation
allowance on deferred tax assets.  At June 30, 2009,
CapitalSource's loan-loss allowance for commercial loans was
$448 million.  Reserve coverage of nonaccruals is only around 50%;
however, CapitalSource's loans are generally senior secured and
S&P expects recoveries to offset much of the difference.
Management estimates that additional provisions could exceed
$600 million, much of which would likely be taken during the
latter half of 2009 and 2010.

Although S&P believes that prospective asset-quality weakness
reduces CapitalSource's creditworthiness, its balance sheet
benefits from an adequate level of capital.  The capital cushion,
which reflects the higher-risk nature of CapitalSource's loan
portfolio, offers meaningful downside protection to investors.

CapitalSource has also made progress in stabilizing parent-company
liquidity by extending the maturity of its warehouse lines and
syndicated credit facility to better match the expected life of
the funded assets.  Management has also amended financial
covenants associated with the facilities, significantly reducing
the likelihood of near-term breaches.

The negative outlook reflects S&P's expectation that asset quality
and earnings weakness will persist through 2010, which may lead us
to lower the rating if S&P's expectations are exceeded at the
current rating level.  S&P may also lower the rating if
CapitalSource's nonbank liquidity tightens materially.
Conversely, signs of stabilization could result in a more
favorable outlook.

CIB MARINE: Files Ch. 11 After Getting Enough Prepack Plan Votes
----------------------------------------------------------------
Bank holding company CIB Marine Bancshares, Inc., said
September 16 it has received the requisite approval from holders
of its trust preferred securities to exchange their debt
securities for preferred stock, paving the way for the holding
company to file a pre-packaged plan of reorganization under
Chapter 11 of the bankruptcy code.  CIB Marine Bancshares filed
the plan of reorganization September 15 in federal court in
Milwaukee.

"We are pleased that our trust preferred security holders saw the
benefits of this reorganization effort," said John Hickey, Jr.,
chairman and CEO of the holding company.  "We are now asking the
court to approve what is an orderly and efficient reorganization
effort, somewhat similar to the recent effort by GM and Chrysler.
The filing and confirmation of the plan of reorganization by the
court are important steps in the reorganization and strengthening
of the holding company."

In July 2009, the holding company proposed to exchange all of the
trust preferred securities for shares of its non-cumulative
perpetual preferred stock.  Holders of the debt securities
initially had until August 17, 2009, to vote on the proposal. The
voting deadline was twice extended to September 9th and 15th,
respectively.  Based upon information obtained from the trust
preferred securities holders and their trustees during the
extension periods, the holding company determined that, as of
September 15, 2009, it had obtained the requisite approval of the
plan and that it was able to proceed with seeking confirmation by
the court.

With the filing on September 15, the reorganization is targeted to
be complete in roughly 45 to 60 days, pending confirmation by the
court.  Once the plan is confirmed and implemented, the holding
company will be in a stronger position to seek prospective
business partners going forward, according to Hickey.  The plan of
reorganization filed with the court outlines how the holding
company will reduce interest expense, cut debt and enhance the
strength of the holding company.

"Upon completion of the reorganization, we will immediately renew
our search for a strategic partner to combine with CIB Marine
Bancshares," said Hickey. "The improved capital position of the
reorganized company should make it an attractive candidate for a
combination partner."

CIB Marine Bancshares is the holding company for the bank that
operates as Central Illinois Bank in mid-state Illinois and as
Marine Bank in the Milwaukee area, Indianapolis and Scottsdale.
The bank and its branches are not affected by the holding
company's reorganization efforts.

"The bank remains adequately capitalized, and the restructuring of
the holding company will have no direct impact on the operations
of the bank," said Hickey. He added that the bank is regulated
separately from the holding company by both federal and state
regulators and that its accounts are insured up to applicable
limits by the FDIC. "Our bank remains committed to meeting the
ongoing needs of our valued customers."

CIB Marine Bancshares, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: CIBH) --
http://www.cibmarine.com/-- is a one-bank holding company with 17
banking offices in central Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, and

CIB Marine Bancshares asked holders of its trust preferred
securities to give advance approval of a pre-packaged plan of
reorganization under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code that would
involve conversion of their debt securities to preferred stock.

Under the Plan of Reorganization, roughly $105.3 million of high-
interest cumulative indebtedness would be exchanged for 55,624
shares of Series A 7% fixed rate perpetual noncumulative preferred
stock with a stated value of $1,000 per share and 4,376 shares of
Series B 7% fixed rate convertible perpetual preferred stock with
a stated value of $1,000 per share.  Each share of CIB Marine's
Series B Preferred would be convertible into 4,000 shares of the
Company's common stock only upon the consummation of a merger
transaction involving the company.  The Company Preferred would
have no stated redemption date and holders could never force the
Company to redeem it.

As of Aug. 31, 2009, the Debtor has $104,800,110 in total assets
and $107,214,495 in total debts.

CLEM CARINALLI: Involuntary Bankr. Could Delay Loan Payments
------------------------------------------------------------
Derek J. Moore at The Press Democrat reports that a group of
investors claiming that they are owed almost $1 million by Clem
Carinalli has filed a petition to force him into Chapter 7
bankruptcy in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Santa Rosa.  Mr.
Carinalli, The Press Democrat relates, owes creditors some
$150 million.  According to The Press Democrat, Exchange Bank
President William Schrader said that the involuntary bankruptcy
could delay loan payments to the bank and other institutions.  Mr.
Carinalli said that he was hoping to avert bankruptcy and instead
negotiate privately with investors, as that would increase the
odds of paying creditors back, the report says.  Mr. Carinalli
hired debt restructuring consultant Steve Huntley to negotiate
with creditors, the report states.

CONSECO INC: Alvarez & Marsal Advising Steering Committee
---------------------------------------------------------
Counsel to the members of a Steering Committee holding more than
50% of Conseco, Inc.'s senior debt has retained Alvarez & Marsal
North America, LLC, to provide advice.

A&M Managing Director John Suckow made the disclosure in a Fifth
Supplemental Declaration dated Sept. 16, 2009, filed in Lehman
Brother's chapter 11 cases.

                Looming Liquidity Crisis in 2010

Conseco has warned in its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the
period ended June 30, 2009, that there is a significant risk it
will be unable to pay holders of $293 million in Debentures who
exercise their right to require the Company to purchase their
Debentures for cash on September 30, 2010; or unable to refinance
the Debentures.  Conseco said the amendment in March 2009 to its
Second Amended Credit Facility prohibits the Company from
redeeming or purchasing the Debentures with cash from certain
sources.  Without a further amendment of the Second Amended Credit
Facility or a waiver from the lenders, the Company said it will
not be able to make any payments to the holders of the Debentures
on September 30, 2010 -- assuming the holders of the Debentures
elect to exercise their right to require the Company to repurchase
their Debentures for cash on that date.

The Company has had discussions with certain holders of the
Debentures regarding an exchange of the Debentures for a
combination of new senior, unsecured debt or convertible debt
maturing after October 2014 and shares of the Company's common
stock.  The Company expects to have additional discussions with
holders of the Debentures regarding an exchange of the Debentures.
There can be no assurance that any such discussions will be
successful.

Conseco's principal repayments and other debt service and holding
company requirements in 2010 currently exceed the liquidity the
Company expects to have at the holding company.  The debt
repayment obligations in 2010 are:

      3.50% convertible debentures     $293,000,000
      Secured credit agreement            8,800,000
      6% Senior Health Note              25,000,000
                                      -------------
                                       $326,800,000

"We are continuing to explore various alternatives to address our
2010 debt service requirements and remain in compliance with our
debt covenants, including, without limitation, exchanges and other
financing transactions, reinsurance transactions, asset sales,
transactions to improve statutory capital and debt modification.
Failure to generate sufficient cash to meet our debt obligations
in 2010 could have material adverse consequences on the Company,"
Conseco has said.

As of June 30, 2009, the Company had $29.4 billion in total assets
and $27.0 billion in total liabilities

The current financial strength ratings of Conseco's primary
insurance subsidiaries from A.M. Best Company, S&P and Moody's
Investor Services, Inc., are "B (Fair)", "BB-" and "Ba2",
respectively.

CONTINENTAL RESOURCES: Moody's Assigns 'Ba3' Corp. Family Rating
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a new Ba3 Corporate Family
Rating and Probability of Default Rating to Continental Resources,
Inc.  Moody's also assigned a B2, LGD5 (83%) rating to the
company's proposed $300 million senior notes due 2019 and a
Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating of SGL-3.  The outlook is
stable.

"Within its niche strategy of exploiting unconventional oil shale
plays through the drillbit, Moody's consider Continental to be a
well-run firm that pursues a cogent regional exploitation
strategy," commented Francis J. Messina, Moody's Vice-
President/Senior Analyst.  Continental's Ba3 rating is supported
by a high quality asset base, positive production trends, a long
productive history in most of its focus regions, geologic
diversification and operating risk diversification across multiple
producing regions, and a seasoned management.  The rating is
tempered by Continental's reserve replacement costs which are high
and reflective of the company's strategy of focusing on
unconventional oil and natural gas resources by primarily
utilizing horizontal drilling and enhanced recovery techniques.

Because Continental's growth is primarily organic or through the
drillbit, three-year all sources reserve replacement costs closely
mirror the drillbit replacement costs, both of which, are on the
higher end of Moody's single B rated E&P peer group and all map
within the Caa range.  The high three-year drillbit costs
(including revisions) of almost $24/boe (one-year drillbit of
$26/boe) underlines that while Continental has demonstrated a
solid organic reserve replacement trend, it has come at higher
costs and also reflects the project driven nature of investing in
unconventional resource plays.  Moody's expect pressure on the
company's reserve replacement costs to remain high, given the
company's niche strategy of exploiting unconventional oil shale
plays through horizontal drilling and enhanced recovery
techniques, which generally have higher costs.

Nevertheless, Continental has been successful with horizontal
drilling and advanced stimulation and enhanced recovery techniques
demonstrated through its considerable success of over 600
productive horizontal wells since 1994.  Additionally, Continental
operates a high proportion of its properties, which enables it to
have greater control over the level and timing of its capital
spending.

Based on the proposed offering of $300 million of senior unsecured
notes, the company's existing senior secured bank borrowing would
be reduced to approximately $301 million.  Under Moody's Loss
Given Default methodology, the two notch difference between the
CFR and proposed senior unsecured rating is due to the
proportionately large size of the secured borrowings in relation
to the size of the note.

The SGL-3 rating reflects Continental's adequate liquidity over
the next twelve months following the bond offering.  The company
expects to largely fund capital expenditures with operating cash
flows and will have approximately $450 million of availability on
its senior secured revolver to fund the modest amount of
forecasted negative free cash flow.  This provides substantial
liquidity for working capital needs and the potential effects of
weakening commodity prices on the company's unhedged production,
while also leaving room for potential reductions in the borrowing
base in future redeterminations.

The stable outlook is based on an expectation that Continental
continues to restrain its capital expenditures to levels largely
in line with its operating cash flows while achieving its
production targets.  The outlook could be changed to negative if
spending were to materially exceed operating cash flow.  The
outlook could also be pressured or the ratings downgraded if the
company were to significantly increase debt through further
property acquisitions and/or outspending its operating cash flows
and raise leverage on PD reserves above $8/boe.

Continental Resources, Inc., is an independent exploration and
production company headquartered in Enid, Oklahoma.


CONTINENTAL RESOURCES: S&P Assigns 'BB' Corporate Credit Rating
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'BB' corporate
credit rating to oil and gas exploration and production company
Continental Resources, Inc. At the same time, S&P assigned a 'BB'
rating to Continental Resources' proposed $300 million senior
unsecured notes due 2019.  Lastly, S&P assigned a '3' recovery
rating to the notes, indicating expectations of a meaningful (50%-
70%) recovery in the event of default.  The outlook is stable.
The Enid, Oklahoma-based company will use proceeds from the
transaction to reduce outstanding debt under its bank credit
facility.

"The ratings on Continental Resources reflect the company's weak
business risk position as an operator in the competitive and
highly cyclical oil and gas industry," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Patrick Y.  Lee.  S&P considers the company to have
a midsize, geographically concentrated reserve base, and an
average cost structure.  The ratings also reflect the low-risk
nature of the company's drilling operations, competitive finding
and development (F&D) costs compared to similarly rated oil-
weighted peers, good drilling prospects, and moderate financial
leverage.

Continental Resources has reserves of 159.3 million barrels of oil
equivalent (67% crude oil, 67% proved developed), and an 11.7 year
reserves/production ratio.  The company's reserves are
concentrated in the Rocky Mountains region (Red River units, the
Bakken Field and the Big Horn Basin), which represents
approximately 70% of total reserves and 77% of production, and
Mid-Continent region (Arkoma Woodford and Anadarko Basin), which
represents approximately 29% of reserves and 21% of production,
with only a small contribution from the Gulf Coast.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's expectation that Continental
Resources will generally keep capital expenditures within cash
flow generation as it pursues organic production growth, although
S&P does not expect this to be the case in 2009.  S&P would
consider a negative outlook if weak operating results or a
greater-than-expected cash flow deficit result in total adjusted
debt to EBITDAX of more than 3.25x- 3.5x or FFO to total adjusted
debt of less than 20% on a sustained basis.  Positive rating
action is limited given the company's size, scope, and diversity
of operations.

----------------------------------------------------------
Corus Bank, N.A., the wholly owned subsidiary of Corus Bankshares,
Inc., was closed September 11, 2009, by the Office of the

On September 15, 2009, Corus Bankshares received a letter from

common stock on September 14, 2009.  The Letter indicated that
Nasdaq was concerned about the Company's ability to sustain
compliance with all of the requirements for continued listing on

continue to be halted in the Company's common stock until trading

remove the Company's common stock from listing and registration on

CYNERGY DATA: Committee Protests Sale of Assets to ComVest Group
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors in the Cynergy Data
LLC case objected in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Delaware, criticizing elements of the sale proposal, according to
Law360.

Arguing that the structure of the sale discourages competitive
bidding, Cynergy's creditors have objected to the Debtor's plan to
sell its assets to investment firm ComVest Group -- raising the
ire of the debtor, which claims the proposal is fair and has been
crafted through "painful" negotiations, the report says.

As reported by the TCR on September 16, the Bankruptcy Court has
already approved the proposed sale process under which ComVest
will be the lead bidder, although the Court will hold another
hearing to consider the results of the auction.

Cynergy Data LLC will hold an auction on October 5 under which
ComVest will be the stalking horse bidder.  Competing bids must be
submitted by October 2 and must exceed ComVest's initial offer by
$4.46 million.  Secured lenders are allowed to submit credit bids.

The Court will consider approving the results of the auction at an
October 7 hearing.

According to the bid procedures submitted to the Court, ComVest
will receive a break-up fee of $1,620,000 and expense
reimbursement of up to $648,000 in the event the Debtor closes a
sale with another party.

instruments.  According to Moody's, the positioning of Dana's PDR

DELTA AIR LINES: $800MM Bond Sale for New Atlanta Terminal
----------------------------------------------------------
Delta Air Lines Inc. and the Atlanta airport are nearing a lease
accord that would pave the way for an $800 million bond sale for
the construction of a new international terminal at Hartsfield-
Jackson Atlanta International Airport, according to reports.

As previously reported, Hartsfield-Jackson's 30-year contracts
that govern airline operations, including Delta's, are set to
expire in 2010.  Delta, the airport's largest tenant, previously
disputed the terminal budget of $1.68 billion and threatened to
switch flights to other hubs including Memphis, Tennessee, or
Cincinnati unless the proposed terminal cost was cut.

Subsequently, the cost was trimmed by about 20 percent to
$1.35 billion in July 2009, people familiar with the matter told
Bloomberg News.

The airport plans to add a 12-gate international terminal to ease
congestion and allow Delta to handle more passengers.  The
terminal is scheduled to be completed by 2012, according to USA
Today.

                       About Delta Air Lines

With its acquisition of Northwest Airlines, Atlanta, Georgia-based
Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) -- http://www.delta.com/or

its hubs in Atlanta, Cincinnati, Detroit, Memphis, Minneapolis-St.
Paul, New York-JFK, Salt Lake City and Tokyo-Narita, Delta, its
Northwest subsidiary and Delta Connection carriers offer service
to more than 376 destinations worldwide in 66 countries and serves
more than 170 million passengers each year.  Delta's marketing
alliances allow customers to earn and redeem either SkyMiles or
WorldPerks on more than 16,000 daily flights offered by SkyTeam
and other partners.  The merger closed on October 29, 2008.

Northwest and 12 affiliates filed for Chapter 11 protection on
September 14, 2005 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Lead Case No. 05-17930).

As reported by the TCR on June 29, 2009, Fitch Ratings has
downgraded the debt ratings of Delta Air Lines, Inc., and its
wholly owned subsidiary Northwest Airlines, Inc. -- (i) DAL's
Issuer Default Rating to 'B-' from 'B', First-lien senior secured
credit facilities to 'BB-/RR1' from 'BB/RR1', and Second-lien
secured credit facility to 'B-/RR4' from 'B/RR4', and (ii) NWA's
IDR to 'B-' from 'B'; and Secured bank credit facility to 'BB-
/RR1' from 'BB/RR1'.  The downgrade of DAL's ratings reflects the
continued erosion of the airline's near-term cash flow generation
potential that has resulted from extremely weak business travel
demand and large year-over-year declines in passenger revenue per
available seat mile.


DELTA AIR LINES: Offers Q3 & Full Year 2009 Forecast
----------------------------------------------------
In an investor update filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission on September 14, 2009, Delta Air Lines, Inc., provided
guidance for the September quarter and full year 2009.

Delta Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Hank
Halter noted that system load factors for September and October
2009 are expected to be approximately 82%, which is in line to
slightly above 2008's levels.

Mr. Halter added that system yields for the period from September
to December 2009 are expected to be 11-14% lower than the same
period in 2008.  Yield pressure is being driven by the prior year
period's fare or surcharge peak related to fuel, the effect of
which should lessen throughout the December 2009 quarter.

According to Mr. Halter, the company expects that its year-over-
year RASM decline for the September 2009 quarter will be a slight
improvement over the June 2009 quarter year-over-year change.
The December 2009 quarter RASM change is currently forecasted to
be approximately 10 points better than the September 2009 quarter
change.

According to Mr. Halter, fuel price-related projections of the
Company include:

  * Assumed $75 all-in price per barrel for crude oil plus
    refining spread

  * Hedge losses of $0.11/gallon in 3Q09 and no impact from
    hedges in 4Q09

  * Tax and transportation costs of approximately $0.17/gallon

  * Call option premiums

For the September 2009 quarter, Delta's defined benefit pension
expense is expected to be $100 to 125 million and defined benefit
funding approximately $25 million.  For the full year 2009,
Delta's defined benefit pension funding is estimated to be
$200 million, Mr. Halter told the SEC.

Delta's 2010 funding requirement for its defined benefit pension
plans, which have been frozen for future accruals, is estimated
to increase by $450 million as compared to 2009.  The increase in
required funding is due primarily to the decline in the
investment markets in 2008, which negatively affected the value
of pension assets, according to Mr. Halter.

                                     Sept Qtr 2009         2009

Mr. Halter related that as of December 31, 2008, Delta had (i)
$505 million of federal alternative minimum tax credit
carryforwards, which do not expire, and (ii) $14.5 billion of
federal and state pretax NOL carryforwards, substantially all of
which will not begin to expire until 2022.

Delta expects approximately 828 million and 827 million weighted
average shares outstanding for the September 2009 quarter and
full year 2009, Mr. Halter added.

                       About Delta Air Lines

With its acquisition of Northwest Airlines, Atlanta, Georgia-based
Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) -- http://www.delta.com/or
http://www.nwa.com/-- is now the world's largest airline.  From
its hubs in Atlanta, Cincinnati, Detroit, Memphis, Minneapolis-St.
Paul, New York-JFK, Salt Lake City and Tokyo-Narita, Delta, its
Northwest subsidiary and Delta Connection carriers offer service
to more than 376 destinations worldwide in 66 countries and serves
more than 170 million passengers each year.  Delta's marketing
alliances allow customers to earn and redeem either SkyMiles or
WorldPerks on more than 16,000 daily flights offered by SkyTeam
and other partners.  The merger closed on October 29, 2008.

As reported by the TCR on June 29, 2009, Fitch Ratings has
downgraded the debt ratings of Delta Air Lines, Inc., and its
wholly owned subsidiary Northwest Airlines, Inc. -- (i) DAL's
Issuer Default Rating to 'B-' from 'B', First-lien senior secured
credit facilities to 'BB-/RR1' from 'BB/RR1', and Second-lien
secured credit facility to 'B-/RR4' from 'B/RR4', and (ii) NWA's
IDR to 'B-' from 'B'; and Secured bank credit facility to 'BB-
/RR1' from 'BB/RR1'.  The downgrade of DAL's ratings reflects the
continued erosion of the airline's near-term cash flow generation
potential that has resulted from extremely weak business travel
demand and large year-over-year declines in passenger revenue per
available seat mile.


DELTA AIR LINES: Seeks April 19 Deadline to Object to Claims
------------------------------------------------------------
Delta Air Lines, Inc., and its debtor-affiliates informed Judge
Cecilia G. Morris of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York that they have made exceptional
progress in resolving disputed claims through settlements and
objections.

According to Timothy E. Graulich, Esq., at Davis Polk & Wardwell,
in New York, the Debtors have made distributions on account of
resolved claims and undertook the necessary tasks related to the
distributions.  Specifically, the Debtors have:

* made eight distributions totaling 341.4 million shares of
   New Delta Common Stock and $8.9 million in cash on account
   of 36,700 allowed unsecured claims in a face amount of
   $13.8 billion;

* filed 29 prior omnibus objections covering more than 6,800
   proofs of claim;

* resolved more than 6,200 disputed proofs of claim through
   objections, withdrawals and other resolutions, with an
   initial face value of $77.2 billion;

* filed 10 additional omnibus objections with respect to at
   least 240 proofs of claim arising from aircraft-related
   transactions;

* analyzed and categorized variations in contract language
   from the operative documents of more than 200 separate
   aircraft leveraged lease transactions with respect to which
   tax indemnity claims and stipulated loss value claims have
   been filed; and

* filed five separate "test case" objections to TIA and SLV
   claims to determine Delta's obligations, and an omnibus
   objection with respect to remaining TIA claims and SLV
   claims.

Mr. Graulich notes that despite the substantial progress made,
the Debtors still need to attend to these unresolved claims:

  -- 127 aircraft-related claims that remain unresolved,
     representing approximately $1.1 billion in value;

  -- 135 non-aircraft claims, totaling $335 million;

  -- a number of TIA and SLV claims that have the subject of
     appeals and other underlying issues relating to claim
     amount reductions; and

  -- objections to TIA and SLV claims that the Debtors intend to
     pursue.

The deadline for the Debtors to object to the claims is set to
expire on October 19, 2009.

In this regard, the Debtors ask the Court to extend the Claims
Objection Deadline to April 19, 2010, to allow them to properly
analyze the Remaining Claims.  Absent the Extension, the Debtors
would be forced to interrupt ongoing negotiations and proceedings
in order to preserve their rights with respect to unresolved
claims, Mr. Graulich noted.

Mr. Graulich added that the Extension will not materially
prejudice claimants.  In fact, many of the Remaining Claims
cannot be properly processed without careful consideration to the
factual context and putative legal basis for recovery, and
therefore necessitate more time for careful analysis.

The Court will convene a hearing to consider the Debtors' request
on September 22, 2009.  Objections, if any, must be filed by
September 17.

DETROIT BREAKFAST: Gov't Loan Fails to Stop Chapter 11 Filing
-------------------------------------------------------------
Jaclyn Trop at The Detroit News reports that Detroit Breakfast
House & Grill has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection,
despite receiving hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayer-
funded loans since 2004.

Detroit Breakfast founder Frank Taylor said in a statement that
the Company's collapse was due to acute economic downturn.

Court documents say that Detroit Breakfast listed $500,000 to
$1 million in liabilities owed to creditors including:

     -- the quasi-governmental arm of the Detroit Economic Growth
        Corp.;

     -- Northern Lakes Seafood & Meats of Hamtramck, owed about
        $274,098.60;

     -- Sysco Food Services, owed about $55,946.54;

     -- Hour Media, LLC, owed about $9,248.07;

     -- D Business owed about $1,363.82; and

     -- the city of Detroit, owed about $90,000.

According to The Detroit News, at least $200,000 in Downtown
Development Authority loans to Detroit Breakfast may not be fully
repaid.  Detroit Economic spokesperson Robert Rossbch said that
the corporation is "reviewing its options for recovery of the
funds on behalf of the DDA," The Detroit News states.

Detroit Breakfast House & Grill is owned by the Southern
Hospitality Group.  Frank Taylor, head of Southern Hospitality,
used Downtown Development Authority loans to create the
restaurant.


DELTA PETROLEUM: Shares Rose Last Week on Drilling Approvals
------------------------------------------------------------
Delta Petroleum Corporation on September 10, 2009, issued a press
release acknowledging the abnormally high trading volumes in its
common stock in recent days.

In a separate report on September 14, the Motley Fool said Delta
stock rose 32% when the company received drilling approval for
four more natural gas wells in Washington state.

Last week, Motley Fool cited Delta as among 10 stocks that made
some of the biggest upward moves over the past month.  Motley Fool
said Delta stock made a 57.81% change the past 30 days.

On September 8, 2009, Delta received approval to drill four
exploratory natural gas wells in the Columbia River Basin.  These
wells are contingent upon the success of the currently completing
Gray 31-23 well.  Delta has said completion operations involving
the Gray 31-23 have commenced and are continuing, but no
determination has been made regarding the commerciality of the
well.

                        Going Concern Doubt

The Company had at June 30, 2009, a working capital deficiency of
$225.5 million, including $83.0 million outstanding under its
credit agreement and $83.3 million outstanding under the credit
agreement of DHS Drilling Company, the Company's 49.8% subsidiary.
The net loss and working capital deficiency, the Company said,
raises substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue
as a going concern.

At June 30, 2009, the Company was in compliance with its quarterly
financial covenants under its credit agreement; however,
projections indicate that without an increase in Rocky Mountain
natural gas prices upon which the majority of the Company's
production is sold, the senior secured debt to EBITDAX ratio
covenant in its credit agreement could be violated within the next
12 months.  The borrowing base under the Company's credit
agreement is to be redetermined effective September 1, 2009.  A
decrease in the borrowing base determined by the lenders would
decrease the Company's remaining availability under the line of
credit.

                            DHS Default

At June 30, 2009, DHS was in not in compliance with its obligation
to provide to Lehman Commercial Paper, Inc., by March 31 of each
year audited financial statements reported on without a going
concern qualification or exception by the independent auditor and
DHS's previous forbearance agreement with LCPI expired on June 15,
2009.  In addition, DHS was not in compliance with its various
financial covenants as of June 30, 2009.  Although DHS is in
ongoing negotiations with LCPI to modify the terms of the existing
DHS credit facility, there can be no assurance that DHS will be
able to renegotiate the terms of its debt agreement.  The DHS
facility is non-recourse to Delta.

                About Delta Petroleum Corporation

Headquartered in Denver, Colorado, Delta Petroleum Corporation
(NASDAQ: DPTR) -- http://www.deltapetro.com/-- is an oil and gas
exploration and development company.  The company's core areas of
operations are the Gulf Coast and Rocky Mountain Regions, which
comprise the majority of its proved reserves, production and long-
term growth prospects.

As of June 30, 2009, Delta had $1.66 billion in total assets; and
$366.5 million in total current liabilities and $463.8 million in
total long-term liabilities.

                          *     *     *

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on March 3, 2009,
KPMG LLP in Denver, Colorado, raised substantial doubt about Delta
Petroleum Corporation's ability to continue as a going concern
after auditing the Company's financial statements for the periods
ended December 31, 2008, and 2007.  The auditors related that the
Company has suffered recurring losses from operations, has a
working capital deficiency, and was not in compliance with its
debt covenants at December 31, 2008.

According to the TCR on March 9, 2009, Moody's Investors Service
downgraded Delta Petroleum Corporation's (Delta) $150 million 7%
senior unsecured notes due 2015 to Ca (LGD 5, 78%) from Caa3 (LGD
5, 76%).  Moody's also downgraded Delta's Corporate Family Rating
to Caa3 from Caa2 and its Probability of Default Rating to Caa3
from Caa2.  Delta's Speculative Grade Liquidity rating remains at
SGL-4.  Moody's said that the outlook is negative.

The TCR reported on March 6, 2009, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services said that it lowered the corporate credit rating on
exploration and production company Delta Petroleum Corp. to 'CCC'
from 'B-'.  S&P removed all ratings from CreditWatch with negative
implications where they were placed on January 16, 2009, because
of concerns about near-term liquidity and covenant compliance.
S&P said that the outlook is developing.

DIXIE PELLETS: Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection
---------------------------------------------------------
Dixie Pellets, LLC, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection
in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Alabama,
listing more than $100 million in liabilities.

Russell Hubbard posted on the Birmingham News that Dixie Pellets
has laid off 70 workers.

Court documents say that Dixie Pellets had a loss of $14 million
on sales of $11.4 million for the fiscal year ended July 20, 2009.

Dixie Pellets, LLC, turned wood shavings and chips into pellets
burned as a substitute for fossil fuels.  The largest customers
were in Europe, where utilities get government subsidies to burn
the pellets.  It is 86% owned by a unit of Harbert Power Fund III.


DOT VN: Posts $2.59MM Net Loss for July 31 Quarter
--------------------------------------------------
Dot VN, Inc., reported a net loss for the three months ended
July 31, 2009, of $2,597,942 compared with a net loss for the
three months ended July 31, 2008 of $2,332,028.

The Company posted $363,112 in revenues for the three months ended
July 31, 2009, from $376,680 for the same period a year ago.

At July 31, 2009, the Company had total assets of $2,269,335 and
total liabilities of $11,791,040.  At July 31, 2009, the Company
had total shareholders' deficit of $9,521,705.

The Company acknowledges it has had limited revenues from the
marketing and registration of '.vn' domain names as it operates in
this single industry segment.  Consequently, the Company has
incurred recurring losses from operations.  In addition, the
Company has defaulted on $612,500 of convertible debentures that
were due January 31, 2009 and currently has not negotiated new
terms or an extension of the due date on the Defaulted Debentures.
These factors, as well as the risks associated with raising
capital through the issuance of equity or debt securities creates
uncertainty as to the Company's ability to continue as a going
concern.

The Company's plans to address its going concern issues include:

     -- Increasing revenues of its services, specifically within
        its domain name registration business segment through:

        * the development and deployment of an Application
          Programming Interface which the Company anticipates will
          increase its reseller network and international
          distribution channels and through direct marketing to
          existing customers both online, via e-mail and direct
          mailings, and

        * the commercialize of pay-per-click parking page program
          for '.vn' domain registrations;

     -- Completion and operation of the IDCs and revenue derived
        from the IDC services;

     -- Commercialization and Deployment of certain new wireless
        point-to-point layer one solutions; and

     -- Raising capital through the sale of debt or equity
        securities.

There can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in
its efforts to increase revenues, issue debt or equity securities
for cash or as payment for outstanding obligations.  Capital
raising efforts may be influenced by factors outside of the
control of the Company, including, but not limited to, capital
market conditions.

The Company is in various stages of finalizing implementation
strategies on a number of services and is actively attempting to
market its services nationally in Vietnam.  As a result of capital
constraints it is uncertain when it will be able to deploy the
Application Programming Interface or construction of the IDCs.

Chang G. Park, CPA, from San Diego, California, expressed on
July 24, 2009, substantial doubt about Dot VN's ability to
continue as a going concern after auditing the company's financial
results for the years ended April 30, 2009 and 2008.  The auditing
firm reported that the company experienced losses from operations.

E*TRADE FIN'L: Files Monthly Activity Report for August 2009
------------------------------------------------------------
E*TRADE FINANCIAL Corporation on September 15, 2009, released its
Monthly Activity Report for August and provided an intra-quarter
update on its loan portfolio delinquencies and certain key
financial and balance sheet metrics.

The Company ended August with record brokerage accounts of more
than 2.7 million, including gross new brokerage accounts of 31,324
and net new brokerage accounts of 11,321 during the month.  Total
accounts ended the month at more than 4.5 million.  Total Daily
Average Revenue Trades for August were 208,495 -- an increase of
18.3% from July and 37.4% from the year ago period.  The Company
reported roughly 200,000 DARTs for September month to date (as of
September 11).

Customer security holdings increased 2.9% and brokerage related
cash increased by $982 million in August.  This was offset by a
$380 million reduction in Bank related customer cash and deposits,
as the Company continued to execute on its balance sheet reduction
strategy.  This led to a 2.6% increase in total customer assets in
the month and flat net new customer assets.  Customers were net
sellers of roughly $600 million of securities in August.

The Company also provided an update concerning delinquencies in
its loan portfolio.  Special mention delinquencies (30 to 89 days
delinquent) for its home equity portfolio, which represents the
Company's greatest exposure to loan losses, remained flat from
June 30 to August 31.  Home equity "at risk" delinquencies (30 to
179 days delinquent) declined 7% from June 30 to August 31.  Total
special mention delinquencies for the Company's loan portfolio,
which includes one- to four-family, home equity and consumer and
other loans, declined by 4% quarter to date, as of August 31,
2009.

Detailed information concerning loan delinquencies is available
at http://ResearchArchives.com/t/s?44cd

The Company also provided an update to certain key financial and
balance sheet metrics through the first two months of the third
quarter, as well as certain forecasts for the third quarter 2009
results.  The Company cautions that the data is preliminary as of
September 14, 2009, and subject to change.

E*TRADE FIN'L: Terminates Stockholder Rights Plan
-------------------------------------------------
E*TRADE FINANCIAL Corporation said its Board of Directors has
terminated the Company's Stockholder Rights Plan in accordance
with the stockholder advisory vote at the Special Stockholder
Meeting in August.  In addition, the Board of Directors has
authorized the commencement of an At The Market program to issue
common stock for which the Company has entered into an equity
distribution agreement with Sandler O'Neill + Partners, L.P.

Under the terms of the agreement, the Company may from time to
time offer and sell up to $150,000,000 of common stock through the
ATM program.  The Company intends to use the proceeds from the
sale of common stock to enhance liquidity for the parent company
as well as for working capital and general corporate purposes.

Sales of the shares, if any, will be made by means of ordinary
brokers' transactions on the NASDAQ Global Select Market at market
prices or as otherwise agreed by Sandler O'Neill.  These shares
will be offered at market prices prevailing at the time of sale.

Under the terms of the distribution agreement, the Company also
may sell shares of its common stock to Sandler O'Neill, as
principal for its own account, at a price agreed upon at the time
of sale.  If the Company agrees to sell shares to Sandler O'Neill,
as principal, it will enter into a separate terms agreement with
Sandler O'Neill, and will describe such agreement in a separate
prospectus supplement or pricing supplement.

The Company will pay Sandler O'Neill a commission equal to 2.00%
of the sales price of all shares sold through it as distribution
agent.  Subject to the terms of the distribution agreement,
Sandler O'Neill will use its commercially reasonable efforts to
sell on our behalf any shares to be offered under the distribution
agreement.

On September 11, 2009, in accordance with a stockholder advisory
vote at a special stockholder meeting held on August 19, E*TRADE
entered into a Fourth Amendment to the Rights Agreement, dated as
of July 9, 2001, as amended, between the Company and American
Stock Transfer and Trust Company, to accelerate the final
expiration date of the rights issued thereunder to the close of
business on September 11, effectively terminating the Company's
stockholder rights plan as of that date.

On September 9, 2009, the Company filed a Restated Charter with
the Secretary of State of Delaware.  The filing merely restated
the Charter to include all prior amendments in a single document.
No new or additional amendment of the Charter was made.  The
restatement of the Charter was approved by the Company's Board of
Directors on September 8, 2009.  The restatement of the Charter
was effective immediately upon filing.

On September 11, 2009, the closing price of the Company's common
stock on NASDAQ was $1.66.

EASTMAN KODAK: To Raise $700MM to Repurchase Notes, Bolster Cash
----------------------------------------------------------------
Eastman Kodak Company expects to raise up to $700 million through
a series of financing transactions that reinforces the company's
strategic direction and strengthens its financial position:

     -- Kodak has agreed to sell Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co.
        L.P. managed investment vehicles (1) no more than
        $400 million aggregate principal amount of Senior Secured
        Notes due 2017 and (2) warrants to purchase no more than
        53 million shares of Kodak common stock, which represents
        roughly 19.8% of Kodak's outstanding shares as of June 30,
        2009.

     -- Kodak also intends to offer, subject to market and other
        conditions, $300 million aggregate principal amount of
        convertible senior notes due 2017 in a separate private
        placement to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to
        Rule 144A under the Securities Act, as amended.  Kodak
        expects to grant the initial purchasers an option to
        purchase up to an additional $45 million aggregate
        principal amount of the notes to cover over-allotments,
        which option would be exercisable on or prior to
        September 22, 2009.

Kodak, at its discretion, may issue to KKR as few as $300 million
of the Senior Secured Notes, in which case the number of shares
underlying the warrants will be adjusted to as few as 40 million,
with the actual number of warrants pro-rated depending on the
final amount of notes purchased.  Under the terms of the
agreement, KKR is required to hold the warrants and shares
issuable upon exercise of the warrants for a minimum of two years.

The net proceeds of KKR transaction, along with the net proceeds
of the separate private placement transaction, will be used to
repurchase the company's existing 3.375% Convertible Senior Notes
due 2033, a move that will bolster the company's balance sheet and
free up capital for core investments. Any excess proceeds will be
used for general corporate purposes.

"We believe KKR's investment is a validation of our strategy and
our team," said Antonio M. Perez, Kodak's Chairman and Chief
Executive Officer.  "KKR has a long, successful record of working
with, and investing in, companies with significant value-creation
potential.  We look forward to working with the KKR team to
accelerate the growth of our portfolio of high-margin annuity
businesses."

Subject to the completion of the transaction, Kodak's board of
directors will appoint to the board, in accordance with customary
corporate governance policies and guidelines, two individuals
designated by KKR.  Those individuals will be announced upon the
closing of the transaction, which is expected on or before
September 30, 2009, subject to certain conditions.

"Kodak is renowned for its global brand and its leadership as an
imaging innovator," said Henry R. Kravis and George R. Roberts,
Co-Founders of KKR.  "This investment reflects our belief in
Kodak's strategy and our confidence in the Kodak management team
to deliver on that strategy.  We have a long history of working
with companies to realize their full potential, and we look
forward to making our global resources, experience, and expertise
available to ensure success in the marketplace."

                    Details of KKR Transaction

The ultimate aggregate principal amount of the Senior Secured
Notes to be sold to KKR depends on the aggregate principal amount
of indebtedness incurred in the separately announced private
placement and may be reduced by a principal amount of up to
$100 million, at Kodak's discretion.

The Senior Secured Notes will bear interest at a rate ranging from
10% to 10.5% per year, based on the principal amount of the notes,
and the interest will be payable semiannually in arrears on
October 1 and April 1 of each year, beginning April 1, 2010.

The Senior Secured Notes also will bear interest payable-in-kind,
which will be paid by increasing the principal amount of the
Senior Secured Notes.  The amount of PIK Interest will be fixed at
a rate between 0.50% and 1.50% per annum, which will be determined
based on the final size of the private financing transaction. In
addition, the Senior Secured Notes may be issued at a discount
based on the strike price of the warrants.

The warrants are exercisable any time prior to the eighth
anniversary of the date of issuance at an exercise price based on
a formula tied to Kodak stock price performance prior to pricing
the private placement of convertible notes, but in no event will
it be greater than $5.50 per share.

Under the terms of its agreement with Kodak and subject to certain
exceptions, KKR is required to hold the warrants and the shares
issuable upon the exercise of the warrants for a minimum of two
years.  So long as KKR holds warrants to purchase a specified
number of shares of Kodak common stock (or shares issued upon
exercise thereof), KKR will have the right to nominate up to two
members of Kodak's board of directors.

Kodak intends to use the net proceeds from KKR and from the
private placement to repurchase up to $575 million aggregate
principal amount of its 3.375% Convertible Notes due 2033, either
through the tender offer for the 2033 Notes or when they are
required to repurchase the 2033 Notes at the option of the holders
on October 15, 2010, or after the 2033 Notes become redeemable on
or after October 15, 2010.

In furtherance of the transactions, the required lenders under
Kodak's credit facility have approved an amendment that permits
Kodak to incur additional senior debt in an aggregate principal
amount not to exceed $700 million and allows a second-priority
lien on assets securing obligations under the credit facility, for
which Citicorp USA, Inc., acts as administrative agent.

The company is required to deposit up to $575 million of net
proceeds from these transactions into a cash collateral account,
to be used to satisfy the repayment of the 3.375% Convertible
Senior Notes due 2033.

                 Convertible Senior Notes Due 2017

The convertible senior notes due 2017 will be convertible at any
time prior to the business day immediately preceding maturity.
Upon conversion, Kodak will deliver, at its option, solely shares
of its common stock or solely cash.

Kodak will have the right to redeem the notes in whole or in part
at a specified redemption price at any time on or after October 1,
2014, and before October 1, 2016, if certain conditions are met,
and on and after October 1, 2016, regardless of such conditions.
Final terms of the notes, including the interest rate, conversion
price and other terms, will be determined by negotiations between
Kodak and the initial purchasers of the notes.

                        About Eastman Kodak

Headquartered in Rochester, New York, Eastman Kodak Company --

services to the photographic and graphic communications markets.

Kodak'S balance sheet at June 30, 2009, showed total assets of
$7,106,000,000 and total liabilities of $7,215,000,000, resulting
in shareholders' deficit attributable to Kodak of $112,000,000.

On June 17, 2009, Standard & Poor's affirmed its CCC+ issue-level
rating on the Company's Senior Unsecured debt and removed the
rating from CreditWatch.  In addition, the S&P B+ rating on the
Company's Secured debt was withdrawn at the Company's request
because the rating is not required for the Company's Amended and
Restated Credit Agreement.  Previously, on March 5, 2009, S&P had
lowered its Corporate Rating, Secured Rating and Senior Unsecured
Ratings on the Company from B to B-, BB- to B+ and B- to CCC+,
respectively, and removed the Corporate Rating from CreditWatch.
The ratings outlook remains negative.


EASTMAN KODAK: Reiterates Earnings Guidance for Remainder of 2009
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Eastman Kodak Company has reiterated its guidance on its financial
results for the remainder of the year.  This reiteration of
guidance is done solely in connection with this announcement.  The
company does not provide quarterly guidance on a regular basis.

Specific to the third quarter, the company estimates total segment
losses from continuing operations before interest expense, other
income (charges), net, and income taxes will be between
$50 million to $60 million, which does not include any new non-
recurring intellectual property arrangements in the quarter.

The company reiterates its view of the second-half and full-year
2009 performance that it provided on July 30, 2009.  In a July 30
statement, Kodak stated the following, which does not include the
impact of KKR financing transactions:

For the second half of 2009, Kodak is targeting digital revenue to
grow by 1% to 3% and total company revenue to decline 4% to 6%.
For the full-year 2009, Kodak is targeting to be within the ranges
that it presented in its February forecast, including a digital
revenue decline of 6% to 12% and a total revenue decline of 12% to
18%.

Kodak is targeting 2009 segment earnings from operations that will
be within the previously communicated range of $0 to $200 million.
Correspondingly, Kodak previously forecasted 2009 GAAP loss from
continuing operations of $200 million to $400 million, and
reaffirms that GAAP results will be at the low end of that range,
reflecting its latest assessment of restructuring charges,
interest expense, and interest income.

For full-year 2009, Kodak reiterates its goal of achieving
positive cash generation before restructuring. It targets to be at
the low end of its February forecast ranges, which included cash
generation before restructuring of between $75 million and
$325 million and cash generation of negative $200 million to
positive $100 million after taking into account restructuring
payments.  As the company stated when it provided its updated
outlook in July, achievement of the above results is predicated
upon a modest improvement in the market for its consumer and
commercial products, the introduction of new, higher margin
digital cameras and devices, an improvement in demand for its
Prepress products and the successful completion of certain
intellectual property licensing arrangements.

No assurances can be given, however, that Kodak's results for the
quarter ended September 30, 2009, for the second half of 2009, and
for the full-year 2009 will not differ from those projected
amounts.  Kodak said the projected amounts are forward-looking
statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation
Reform Act of 1995.  The projected amounts may or may not be
realized, and they may be based upon judgments or assumptions that
prove incorrect.  Kodak said actual results for the quarter ended
September 30, 2009, for the second half of 2009, and for the full-
year 2009 may vary significantly from these amounts based on
unexpected issues in our business and operations.

Kodak swung to a net loss of $189,000,000 for the three months
ended June 30, 2009, from $495,000,000 net income for the same
period in 2008.  It posted a net loss of $542,000,000 for the six
months ended June 30, 2009, from net income of $380,000,000 for
the same period a year ago.

Kodak'S balance sheet at June 30, 2009, showed total assets of
$7,106,000,000 and total liabilities of $7,215,000,000, resulting
in shareholders' deficit attributable to Kodak of $112,000,000.

EDUCATE INC: Moody's Downgrades Corporate Family Rating to 'B3'
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service lowered Educate, Inc.'s corporate family
and probability-of-default ratings to B3 from B2.  Moody's also
downgraded the rating on the company's first lien senior secured
credit facilities to Ba3 from Ba2.  The rating on the second lien
term loan was affirmed at B3.  The ratings outlook remains
negative.

The downgrade of the corporate family rating reflects continued
pressure on the remaining franchise services segment (the
Schulerhilfe business was sold to Paragon Partners in August 2009)
that has experienced a significant contraction in sales over the
last several quarters due to a reduction in royalties.  The
decline in royalties stems from lower revenue per enrollment and
to a lesser extent, fewer enrollments.  The downgrade also
considers Moody's concern over the company's ability to comply
with the financial covenants governing the first and second lien
credit agreements given near-term step downs.  Moody's notes that
the sale of Schulerhilfe and Catapult Learning in 2008 has
diminished the company's scale and product/geographic
diversification.  However, the rating derives support from the
substantial reduction in debt associated with the Schulerhilfe
sale, pro forma credit metrics that are strong for the B3 rating
category, and recent improvements in franchise services' operating
income despite a contraction in sales.

These ratings were downgraded:

* Corporate Family Rating to B3 from B2;

* Probability-of-Default Rating to B3 from B2;

* $10 million senior secured revolving credit facility due 2012 to
  Ba3 (LGD1, 5%) from Ba2 (LGD2, 21%);

* $12 million first lien term loan B due 2013 to Ba3 (LGD1, 5%)
  from Ba2 (LGD2, 21%).

This rating was affirmed:

* $75 million second lien term loan due 2014 at B3 (LGD4, 55%).
  Point estimate revised from (LGD5, 73%).

The negative outlook continues to reflect Moody's concern that a
weak consumer spending environment will continue to pressure the
results of the Sylvan franchise business given the discretionary
nature of its services and reduced credit availability.

As part of the Schulerhilfe sale, Educate amended the first and
second lien credit agreements, reducing the revolving credit
facility to $10 million from $15 million and tightening the
financial covenant under the second lien term loan.

The last rating action was on February 12, 2009, when Moody's
downgraded Educate's corporate family and probability-of-default
ratings to B2 from B1, but affirmed the Ba2 rating on the first
lien senior secured credit facilities and the B3 rating on the
second lien term loan.  The ratings outlook remained negative.

Headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland, Educate, Inc., is a leading
education services company for students ranging from pre-
kindergarten through high school.  The company's brands includes
Sylvan Learning Centers and Ivy West.

ESCADA AG: U.S. Unit Gets Final Nod to Pay Carriers
---------------------------------------------------
On a final basis, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of New York authorized, but not directed, Escada USA to
pay in its sole discretion any or all of the valid prepetition
charges of (i) common carriers, which consist of carriers,
shippers, freight forwarders and truckers, holding goods belonging
to the Debtor in transit as of the Petition Date; and (ii) any
common carrier or the distribution manager that would be entitled
to a lien on the Debtor's goods as of the Petition Date.

Judge Bernstein clarified that the Debtor is not allowed to pay
prepetition charges of Common Carriers and the Distribution
Manager that exceed $190,000 without further authorization of the
Court.

The Carrier Claims Interim Order does not prejudice the Debtor's
right to dispute or contest the amount of, or basis for, any
claims against the Debtor by the Common Carriers and the
Distribution Manager.  Similarly, the Interim Order will not be
deemed to constitute an assumption of an executory contract,
whether under Section 365 of the Bankruptcy Code or otherwise,
the Court ruled.

ESCADA AG filed of an insolvency petition in Munich, Germany, on
August 13, 2009.  The competent Municipal Court of Munich has
appointed Dr. jur. Christian Gerloff as preliminary insolvency
administrator.

Wholly owned subsidiary Escada (USA) Inc. filed for Chapter 11 on
August 14, 2009 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 09-15008).  O'Melveny &
Myers LLP has been tapped as bankruptcy counsel.  Kurtzman Carson
Consultants serves as claims and notice agent.  Judge Stuart M.
Bernstein handles the case.  Escada US listed US$50 million to
US$100 million in assets and US$100 million to US$500 million in
debts in its petition.


ESCADA AG: U.S. Unit Gets Final OK for Compensation Programs
------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Stuart Bernstein has entered a final order allowing and
empowering Escada (USA) Inc. to maintain its prepetition insurance
programs and workers' compensation programs without interruption.

In the ordinary course of its business, Escada (USA) Inc.
maintains several insurance programs through different insurance
carriers.  The Debtor specifically procured the Liability and
Property Insurance Programs, which provide it with insurance
coverage for liabilities relating to general liability, primary
property liability, automobile liability, ocean cargo liability,
fiduciary liability, crime liability, umbrella liability, excess
liability insurance and foreign liability insurance.

A list of Escada USA's Insurance Programs is available for free
at http://bankrupt.com/misc/Escada_InsurancePrograms.pdf

Escada USA is required to pay premiums under the Liability and
Property Insurance Programs based on fixed rates established by
the Insurance Carrier.  The annual premiums for those policies,
and the Workers Compensation Programs, aggregate approximately
$730,500, Gerard C. Bender, Esq., at O'Melveny & Myers LLP, in
New York, told Judge Stuart M. Bernstein of the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Southern District of New York.

Under the Debtor's Liability and Property Insurance Programs, if
a claim is filed against a policy that has a deductible, the
provider will pay the claim less the amount of the deductible,
rather than pay the full amount of the claim and charge the
Debtor for the amount of the deductible.  As of the Petition
Date, there are no accrued and outstanding amounts with respect
to any deductibles under the Program.  Subsequent to the Petition
Date, however, deductibles for claims relating to the period
prior to the Petition Date may arise, Mr. Bender avers.

The Debtor employs insurance broker Marsh USA, Inc., to assist
with the procurement and negotiation of Insurance Programs, the
processing of claims, and the remittance of payments to the
Insurance Carriers on its behalf.  The Debtor pays Marsh USA a
commission for the performance of the firm's duties.  As of the
Petition Date, there are no amounts accrued and outstanding with
respect to payments to Marsh USA, Mr. Bender notes.

Mr. Bender elaborates that Escada USA is obligated to remain
current with respect to its primary Insurance Policies.
Therefore, he maintains, the continuation of the Insurance
Programs, on an uninterrupted basis, and the satisfaction of all
undisputed payments are essential to preserve the Debtor's
business.

Almost all of the Insurance Programs are due for payment and
renewal on November 1, 2009.  Hence, the renewal or negotiation
of the insurance policies under competitive terms, including
payments to Marsh USA does not necessitate the Court's prior
approval, Mr. Bender explains.

To the extent any Insurance Program or related agreement is
deemed an executory contract within the meaning of Section 365 of
the Bankruptcy Code, the Debtor says it does not seek to assume
any contract.  Hence, Mr. Bender relates, the Court's
authorization to satisfy the insurance premium payments should
neither be deemed to constitute a postpetition assumption or
adoption of the programs, policies, or agreements as executory
contracts, nor affect the Debtor's right to contest the amount or
validity of those obligations.

                 Workers' Compensation Program

Escada USA also maintains insurance policies and programs with
respect to employee benefits, including health, dental,
disability, and life insurance.  The Debtor is specifically
required by state laws to maintain workers' compensation policies
and programs to provide its employees with workers' compensation
benefits for claims arising from or related to their employment
with the Debtor.  The Debtor maintains workers' compensation
coverage through insurance policies provided by the Travelers
Indemnity Co. of America and Travelers Casualty and Surety Co.

The Travelers Program obliges the Debtor to pay an estimated
annual premium of $170,000 for the period from November 1, 2008,
to November 1, 2009.  The Estimated Premium is paid by the Debtor
in 10 equal installments of $17,000.  As of the Petition Date,
the Debtor says it has no remaining payments of the Estimated
Premium due to Travelers.

In particular, Travelers performs an audit of the Debtor's actual
payroll at the conclusion of each policy year.  Following the
annual audit and subsequent to the Petition Date, Travelers may
assert a liquidated prepetition claim.

To the extent the Debtor's employees hold valid workers'
compensation claims, the Debtor seeks the Court's authority to
permit the employees to proceed with their claims in the
appropriate judicial or administrative through modification of
the automatic stay imposed by under Section 362(d) of the
Bankruptcy Code.

To effectuate the modification of the automatic stay, the Debtor
asks Judge Bernstein to waive the stay of a judgment under Rule
7062 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure, as well as the
requirements under Bankruptcy Rule 9014 relating to contested
matters with respect to claims under the Workers' Compensation
Programs.

Prohibiting the Debtor's employees from proceeding with their
claims could have a detrimental effect on the financial well-
being and morale of the employees and lead to their departure,
which could cause a severe disruption in the Debtor's business to
the detriment of all parties-in-interest, Mr. Bender says.

Escada further asks Judge Bernstein to authorize JPMorgan Chase
to honor and process prepetition and postpetition checks and
transfers related to the payment of their Insurance Obligations
under Disbursement Account No. XXX-XXX-5904.

Mr. Bender assures the Court that the Checks or Transfers are or
will be drawn on accounts as authorized under the Cash Management
Order and therefore, can be readily identified as relating
directly to payments under the Insurance Programs.  Accordingly,
prepetition Checks and Transfers other than those relating to the
Insurance Programs will not be honored inadvertently, he points
out.

ESCADA AG: U.S. Unit Gets OK to Honor Customer Programs
-------------------------------------------------------
Escada (USA) Inc. avers that the filing of its Chapter 11 case may
negatively affect customers' attitudes and behavior toward its
businesses.  The Debtor is concerned that its goodwill and
ongoing business relationships may erode if its customers
perceive that it is unable or unwilling to fulfill the
prepetition promises it made through its customer programs and
practices.

The Debtor's Customer Programs include:

  -- Gift Certificates,

  -- Refund and Exchange Program, where customers are allowed to
     return or exchange merchandise of the Debtor that is in
     saleable condition within 10 days of purchase,

  -- Price Adjustment Policy, where the Debtor provides a price
     adjustment to customers if an item goes on sale within 10
     days of purchase, and

  -- Wholesale Customer Programs.

As of the July 31, 2009, the Debtor had approximately $520,917 in
outstanding gift certificates and credits for customers.  Over
the past twelve months, on average, approximately $2,785,165
worth of merchandise purchased by customers from the Debtor was
either returned or exchanged in the Debtor's stores.  The Debtor
does not anticipate the monthly average amount of returns or
exchanges to deviate substantially as a result of its Chapter 11
case.

Gerald C. Bender, Esq., at O'Melveny & Myers LLP, in New York,
tells the Court that the Customer Programs generally cost little
to the Debtor, but generate significant benefits by rewarding
customer loyalty and otherwise promoting sales.

Accordingly, the Debtor sought and obtained the Court's
authority, on a final basis, to perform and honor its
prepetition obligations related to the Customer Programs.

ESCADA AG: U.S. Unit Hiring of O'Melveny Approved
-------------------------------------------------
Escada (USA) Inc. obtained the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York's permission to employ O'Melveny and
Myers LLP as its general counsel to file and prosecute its
Chapter 11 Case and all related matters, effective as of the
Petition Date.

Before the Petition Date, OMM was retained by Escada AG and other
Escada Entities around the world in their respective
restructuring efforts.  OMM has thus become familiar with the
Debtor's business and affairs and many of the potential legal
issues that may arise in the context of the Chapter 11 Case,
according to Escada USA Executive Vice President, Chief Financial
Officer and Treasurer Christian D. Marques.  In this light, he
believes OMM is both well-qualified and uniquely able to
represent the Debtor in the Chapter 11 Case in an efficient and
timely manner.

Generally, OMM will render legal services to the Debtor as needed
throughout the course of its Chapter 11 case, including
bankruptcy, corporate, employee benefits, finance, labor and
employment, litigation, asset disposition, real estate and tax
advice.  Specifically, but not exclusively, OMM will render these
legal services:

  (a) Advise the Debtor generally regarding matters of
      bankruptcy law in connection with its chapter 11 case;

  (b) Advise the Debtor of the requirements of the Bankruptcy
      Code, the Bankruptcy Rules, the Local Bankruptcy Rules for
      the Southern District of New York, and U.S. Trustee
      Guidelines related to the reorganization of its businesses
      and the administration of the estate;

  (c) Prepare motions, applications, answers, proposed orders,
      reports and papers in connection with the administration
      of the estate;

  (d) Negotiate with creditors, prepare and seek confirmation of
      a chapter 11 plan and related documents, and assist the
      Debtor with implementation of the plan;

  (e) Assist the Debtor in the analysis, negotiation and
      disposition, if necessary, of its assets for the benefit
      of its estate and its creditors;

  (f) Advise the Debtor regarding bankruptcy related litigation
      matters; and

  (g) Render other necessary advice and services as the Debtor
      may require in connection with its case.

The Debtor proposes to pay for Mom's services according to the
firm's customary hourly rates:

             Partners            $695 to $950 per hour
             Associates/Counsel  $365 to $670 per hour
             Paraprofessionals   $200 to $335 per hour

The firm will also be reimbursed for its reasonable and necessary
out-of-pocket expenses.

As of the Petition Date, the Debtor does not owe OMM for legal
services rendered before the Petition Date.

Gerald C. Bender, Esq., a partner at OMM, assures the Court that
his firm does not have any connection with or any interest
adverse to the Debtor, its creditors or other parties-in-
interest.  He maintains that OMM is a "disinterested person," as
that term is defined in Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code,
as modified by section 1107(b) of the Bankruptcy Code.

He nevertheless relates that OMM has in the past represented,
currently represents or may in the future represent, in matters
wholly unrelated to the Debtor or its Chapter 11 case, Deutsche
Bank, Bank of New York, JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America,
Bank of Hawaii, HSBC Bank USA, Mellon (HVB) Bank, PNC Bank,
SunTrust Bank, Union Bank of California, Wachovia Bank,
PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Con Edison, General Growth Properties,
Inc. and United HealthCare.  As to Deutsche Bank and Bank of New
York, they are secured lenders to the Parent and unsecured
creditors of the Debtor pursuant to guarantees issued
by the Debtor. The remaining parties disclosed are either
creditors with de minimis amounts owed, institutions with a
retail banking relationship with the Debtor, or professionals of
the Debtor.  In addition, Howard A. Blaustein, a consultant at
Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC, the proposed claims and noticing
agent, was an attorney at OMM from 2002-2004, but no longer has
any connection to the firm, Mr. Bender discloses.

The Debtor has been informed that OMM will conduct an ongoing
review of its files to ensure that no disqualifying circumstances
arise, and that if any new relevant facts or relationships are
discovered, OMM will supplement its disclosure to the Court.

EXPRESS ENERGY: Alvarez & Marsal Providing Restructuring Advice
---------------------------------------------------------------
Express Energy Service Holdings, Inc., has retained Alvarez &
Marsal North America, LLC, to provide restructuring and financial
advisory services to it and certain of its affiliates and
subsidiaries.

A&M Managing Director John Suckow made the disclosure in a Fifth
Supplemental Declaration dated Sept. 16, 2009, filed in Lehman
Brother's chapter 11 cases.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on July 10, 2009,
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Express Energy Services
Operating, LP's Corporate Family Rating to Ca from Caa2, its
Probability of Default Rating to D from Caa3, and its first lien
senior secured term loan and first lien senior secured revolver to
Ca (LGD 4, 69%) from Caa2 (LGD 3, 35%).  The outlook remains
negative.

The downgrade was driven by Express' failure to make its June 30th
principal and interest payment and a corresponding interest rate
swap payment.  There is no grace period related to the company's
principal repayment and only a three-day grace period related to

EXTENDED STAY: Seeks April 13 Extension for Chapter 11 Plan
-----------------------------------------------------------
Extended Stay Inc. and its debtor affiliates ask the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York to extend
their exclusive period to file a Chapter 11 plan until April 13,
2010, and period to solicit votes for that plan until June 11,
2010.

Jacqueline Marcus, Esq., at Weil Gotshal & Manges LLP, in New
York, says the proposed extension is justified given the "sheer
magnitude of the Debtors' indebtedness" and the "complexity of
their capital structure."

The Debtors currently have total liabilities of more than $7.4
billion, consisting of $4.1 billion mortgage loans and $3.3
billion mezzanine loans.  David Lichtenstein, chairman of
Lightstone Group LLC, availed of the loans from Wachovia Bank N.A.
and two other companies to fund the acquisition of the Debtors
from Blackstone Group LP in 2007.  Some of the Debtors are also
obligated on about $8.5 million in principal amount of senior
subordinated notes and about $8.5 million to Bank of America.

"The complex debt structure of the Debtors and the different loan
facilities results in numerous parties potentially having
interests in the plan of reorganization and effectively having a
seat at the negotiating table," Ms. Marcus says in court papers.

According to Ms. Marcus, a transition to a new controlling holder
of the $4.1 billion will also take place within this week, and
that the identity of the controlling holder has to be known first
before the Debtors could proceed with the negotiations regarding
their plan of reorganization.

"It is in the best interest of the estate and the most efficient
use of time to have the identity of the controlling holder
resolved before proceeding with plan negotiations," Ms. Marcus
says, adding that the new controlling holder may have a view of
plan negotiations different from that of the current controlling
holder.

FIDELITY NATIONAL: Fitch Downgrades Issuer Default Rating to 'B+'
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has downgraded the Issuer Default Rating of Fidelity
National Financial, Inc., two notches to 'B+' from 'BB'.  Fitch
also has downgraded the Insurer Financial Strength ratings of
FNF's title insurance subsidiaries one notch to 'BBB-' from 'BBB',
with the exception of the former LandAmerica title subsidiaries,
which Fitch has affirmed at 'BBB-'.  The Rating Outlook for all
ratings is Negative.

The IFS rating downgrade reflects continuation of what Fitch
considers to be an aggressive capital management strategy where
the operating leverage of the underwriting subsidiaries has
increased to a level beyond peer companies.  On a consolidated
basis, Fitch's Risk Adjusted Capital ratio for the title group was
73% at year end 2008 and deteriorated slightly to an estimated 71%
on June 30, 2009.  FNF continues to reduce statutory surplus at
the underwriters through dividends to the parent to support
shareholder dividends and share buybacks at the holding company
level.

At a RAC ratio well under 100%, Fitch views statutory capital as
being at a level generally below expectations for an investment
grade IFS rating.  However, despite this weak capitalization,
Fitch maintains an investment grade IFS rating on FNF's
subsidiaries in recognition that operating results both
historically and through the first half of 2009 were better than
peers.  Favorably as well for the rating, FNF holds approximately
46% market share in the title insurance industry following the
acquisition of LandAmerica Financial Group's underwriters at year
end 2008.

The two-notch downgrade of FNF's IDR reflects both the downgrade
of the IFS rating, as well as greater weight given the substantial
amount of goodwill at the holding company under Fitch's operating
company-holding company notching methodology within the title
insurance industry.  The resulting debt-to-tangible capital ratio
of 44% as of June 30, 2009, is outside of Fitch's expectations.
Fitch notes, however, that FNF favorably reduced financial
leverage by paying down debt following an equity offering in April
2009.

The Negative Outlook reflects the challenges faced by the title
insurance industry in general as mortgage originations and house
values remain pressured.  The Negative Outlook also considers
Fitch's concerns regarding the modest statutory capital levels at
key underwriters as well as general integration risk of the former
LandAmerica underwriters during an extraordinarily difficult
operating environment.

Fitch has taken these rating actions:

Fidelity National Financial, Inc.

  -- Issuer Default Rating downgraded to 'B+' from 'BB';

  -- $250 million 7.3% senior note maturing Aug.  15, 2011
     downgraded to 'B' from 'BB-';

  -- $250 million 5.25% senior note maturing March 15, 2013
     downgraded to 'B' from 'BB-';

  -- Unsecured bank line of credit downgraded to 'B' from 'BB-'.

  -- IFS rating withdrawn.

The Rating Outlook for all ratings is Negative.


FLEETWOOD ENTERPRISES: Levi & Korsinsky Files Class Suit
--------------------------------------------------------
Levi & Korsinsky said a class action lawsuit has been filed in the
United States District Court for the Central District of
California on behalf of purchasers of the common stock of
Fleetwood Enterprises, Inc. between December 6, 2007 and March 10,
2009, inclusive.

The complaint alleges that Fleetwood and certain of its officers
and directors violated the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by
failing to disclose during the Class Period that demand for
Fleetwood's manufactured houses and the big homes-on-wheels was
rapidly declining, which was adversely affecting the Company's
liquidity, and that the Company's financial condition was
declining precipitously such that the Company was nearing
insolvency and would have to file for bankruptcy protection. On
March 10, 2009, Fleetwood issued a press release announcing that
it had filed voluntary Chapter 11 petition in the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Central District of California. As a result,
Fleetwood common stock fell to $0.0103 per share on March 10,
2009.

Levi & Korsinsky has expertise in prosecuting investor securities
litigation and extensive experience in actions involving financial
fraud and represents investors throughout the nation,
concentrating its practice in securities and shareholder
litigation.

FORUM HEALTH: Won't Have Agreement on Plan, Sr. Lenders Say
-----------------------------------------------------------
George Nelson at The Business Journal reports that Forum Health
Inc.'s senior lenders, in their objection to the Company's plea to
extend its exclusivity period until October 31, said that they
don't believe that they will be able to reach an agreement with
the Company on a "rational outcome" for the bankruptcy.

As reported by the TCR on September 16, 2009, Forum Health's major
secured creditors -- MBIA Insurance Corp., U.S. Bank, N.A.,
JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., and Fifth Third Bank -- asked the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Ohio to deny the
Company's request to extend its exclusive right to draft a
reorganization plan.

Citing Forum Health CEO Walter Pishkur, The Business Journal
states that talks were continuing between Forum Health and the
consent parties to arrive at a consensual reorganization plan
prior to the hearing on its motions to extend exclusivity and
continue to access cash collateral for operations, but creditors
said in court documents that recent conversations have led them to
conclude that the Company has "no intention of ensuring that such
a plan be 'acceptable' to" them.  The Forum Health management
"apparently does not appreciate that it must constructively engage
creditors (or engage creditors at all) to successfully emerge from
Chapter 11," the report quoted the lenders as saying.

The Business Journal reports that during the six months that Forum
Health has been in bankruptcy, it has "consistently and repeatedly
failed to adhere to various covenants that they negotiated in the
cash collateral order," and the lenders claim that the Company
defaulted on at least seven of its provisions.

The Business Journal relates that the creditor also filed an
objection to Forum Health's plea for continued access to cash
collateral.

Northside Medical Center remains unable to operate financially
independent from Forum Health's other operations, The Business
Journal relates, citing the lenders.  Mr. Pishkur had said that
the lenders wanted to close Northside Medical.

Based in Warren, Ohio, Forum Health -- http://www.forumhealth.org/
-- offers health care services.  The primary service area consists
of the northeast Ohio counties of Mahoning, Trumbull and
Columbiana; and northeast Ohio counties of Ashtabula, Geauga and
Portage and the Pennsylvania counties of Mercer and Lawrence.

Forum Health and its affiliates filed for Chapter 11 protection on
March 16, 2009 (Bankr. N.D. Ohio Lead Case No. 09-40795).  Paul W.
Linehan, Esq., and Shawn M Riley, Esq., at McDonald Hopkins LLC,
serve as lead counsel to the Debtors.  The Debtors have also
tapped Michael A. Gallo, Esq. at Nadler Nadler & Burdman Co., LPA
as co- counsel; Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC as claims,
noticing and balloting agent; and Huron Consulting Services LLC as
financial advisors.  Alston & Bird LLP represents the official
committee of unsecured creditors formed in the Chapter 11 cases.
At the time of its filing, Forum Health estimated that it had
assets and debts both ranging from $100 million to $500 million.

              Administrative Costs to Be Paid in Full

Promptly after filing for bankruptcy, Old GM, now know as Motors
Liquidation Co., sold its profitable businesses to an entity owned
by the U.S. Treasury.

According to Bloomberg News, Old GM said the $1.18 billion "wind
down" loan provided by U.S. Treasury, along with cash from the
sale of remaining assets, should be enough to pay the
administrative costs of its Chapter 11 case.  However, it said
that it doesn't expect to be able to fully repay the liquidation
loan and said the only assets that will be available to distribute
to creditors will be the equity it holds in General Motors Company
(New GM).

The bankruptcy estate received 50 million New GM shares, a 10%
stake in that company, and warrants to buy an additional
90.9 million shares.

GENERAL MOTORS: German Aid to Opel Must Respect EU Rules, EU Says
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Matthew Newman at Bloomberg News reports that EU Competition
Commissioner Neelie Kroes told Flemish regional leader Kris
Peeters that German plans to provide loan guarantees to General
Motors Co.'s Opel unit must respect EU rules that outlaw making
aid conditional on protecting jobs.

Bloomberg relates the EU's competition commissioner met the
Flemish leader following concerns that a sale of Opel to Magna
International Inc. would shift jobs to Germany from plants in
Belgium, Spain and the U.K.

According to Bloomberg, Mr. Peeters said Ms. Kroes "underlined
that it's very important that the examination will be very severe
and that economic elements are the only elements that can be in
this dossier and when there are political elements that there will
be a very strong and very clear conclusion."

European heads of government and state may discuss the Opel
situation at a meeting in Brussels today, Sept. 17, Bloomberg
notes.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on Sept. 15,
2009, the EU's competition commissioner warned Germany against any
"protectionist motives" in its support plan for GM's Opel unit as
the carmaker's new owner announced plans to cut about 10,500 jobs.
Ms. Kroes, as cited by Bloomberg, said no job or investment
conditions are allowed to be tied to the aid by the government of
German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who is seeking re-election in two
weeks.  Bloomberg disclosed Germany must submit its restructuring
plan for GM's Opel unit to the European Commission.  According to
Bloomberg, the commission said it hasn't been formally notified of
Germany's plan to provide Opel with EUR3 billion (US$4.38 billion)
in loan guarantees.  "Such conditions would create unacceptable
distortions in the internal market and could trigger a subsidy
race which would significantly damage the European economy in the
present delicate moment," Bloomberg quoted Ms. Kroes as saying.
"We will be scrutinizing the process very carefully to make sure
it is based on commercial considerations."

                               Sale

John Reed at The Financial Times reports GM chief executive Fritz
Henderson defended his decision to sell 55% of Opel to Magna and
Sberbank and and secure EUR1.5 billion (US$2.2 billion) of German
bridge financing.  Mr. Henderson, as cited by the FT, said that
while the sale had "hurt" Opel's image among its European
customers, Opel would otherwise have had to file for insolvency in
May as GM itself was preparing its US bankruptcy filing.
Mr. Henderson confirmed Magna's plans to cut 10,500 jobs or about
a fifth of Opel's workforce in Europe.  GM's plant in Antwerp was
"at risk" of being shut down, Mr. Henderson confirmed, although no
final decision had been taken to close it, the FT notes.

The FT relates Mr. Henderson said the sale would see final
agreements signed by early next month, but could take until year
end to close -- up to a month longer than the end of November
deadline GM set last week.

                              Job Cuts

Suzzy Jagger at The Times reports Tony Woodley, the joint general
secretary of Unite, warned Tuesday that the fate of the Vauxhall
workforce was by no means certain.  The trade union leader, as
cited by the Times, said: "As of right now, there are no long-term
commitments for either Ellesmere Port or Luton.  If we listen to
what Magna has actually said, it has committed to nothing beyond
2013."

Nikki Tait and Stanley Pignal at The Financial Times reports
senior Spanish government officials met union representatives from
Opel and regional politicians in Madrid yesterday to work out the
next move against plans to cut output at the Figueruelas plant
near the northern city of Zaragoza.  Unions called for a protest
rally on Saturday against a possible 1,700 job losses, the FT
relates.

                               Links

Daniel Schafer and Bernard Simon at The Financial Times report
Magna's plans to take a majority stake in Opel triggered a
backlash on Tuesday when German carmakers Volkswagen and BMW
voiced unease over the deal and warned that they would review
links with the Canadian car parts supplier.  According to the FT,
Ferdinand Piech, VW chairman, said that Europe's largest carmaker
would consider shifting business to other car parts makers.  "We
as a group do not like it when our suppliers become our rivals,"
the FT quoted the grandson of Ferdinand Porsche as saying.

Friedrich Eichiner, BMW chief financial officer, voiced similar
concerns.  Mr. Eichiner, as cited by the FT, said "Magna has
always been a strong supplier for us.  But Magna will now become a
competitor.  This is a new situation, which we will have to
assess.  We will not put into question any running contracts with
Magna.  But where we see conflicts of interests we might in the
future decide against Magna."

The group's executives will meet customers in Europe and Asia
during the next few weeks to try to allay concerns about the parts
maker's proposed stake in Opel, the FT notes.

GENERAL MOTORS: Saab Seeks Deal on Chinese Sales Networks
---------------------------------------------------------
Cornelius Rahn at Bloomberg News reports that Saab Automobile, the
carmaker being sold by General Motors Co., aims to reach an
agreement with Beijing Automotive Industry Holding Co. on sales
networks in China within weeks.

According to Bloomberg, Christian von Koenigsegg, founder of
Koenigsegg Automotive AB, which is leading a group of investors in
a takeover of Trollhaettan-based Saab, said he doesn't expect GM
to impose restrictions on Saab's sales in China similar to those
facing GM's Opel unit.

Bloomberg relates Mr. von Koenigsegg said Tuesday in an interview
at the Frankfurt Motor Show GM is "open to the idea to make it
work" for Saab.  "We are in the process of finding an agreement
within the next few weeks," Bloomberg quoted Mr. von Koenigsegg as
saying.

Bloomberg recalls Koenigsegg Group said last week Saab plans to
use Beijing Automotive's sales network to sell its sedans and
station wagons, and will share technology with the Chinese
manufacturer.

Saab Chief Executive Officer Jan-Aake Jonsson, as cited by
Bloomberg, said at a news conference in Frankfurt Tuesday
"Beijing Automotive is an opportunity for us to establish
ourselves in the Chinese market with their experience."

On Sept. 10, 2009, the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe, citing
Bloomberg News, reported Beijing Automotive joined Koenigsegg
Group's offer to buy Saab from GM.  Bloomberg disclosed Koenigsegg
Group said in a statement Beijing Automotive will take a minority
stake in the team bidding for Saab and help the unprofitable GM
division find opportunities to expand in China.

Citing Saab Chief Executive Officer Jan-Aake Jonsson, Bloomberg
notes the bidding team of Koenigsegg and investor Augie Fabela II
for the Swedish manufacturer, and GM are working through the
"final pieces" of a transaction, and the purchase should be
completed by Oct. 31.

                        Creditor Protection

The Troubled Company Reporter Europe, citing Bloomberg News,
reported on Feb. 23, 2009, Saab filed for protection from
creditors after parent GM said it will cut ties with the Swedish
carmaker following two decades of losses.  The Trollhaettan,
Sweden-based company filed for reorganization with a Swedish
district court to separate itself from GM and bring resources back
to Sweden.

On June 25, 2009, Troubled Company Reporter, citing The Wall
Street Journal, reported creditors of Saab approved the
automakers' proposal for settling its debts by paying a quarter of
what it originally owed.  Saab proposed to settle its debts by
paying 25% of about US$1.34 billion it owed to more than 600
creditors, including auto suppliers and the Swedish government.
The vast majority of the debt, almost SEK10 billion, was owed to
GM.

currently convertible promissory note -- September 2009 Note.

In addition, Arcus Venture Fund holds (i) warrants that will

which prevents Arcus, et al., from such exercise if, after giving
effect to the exercise, Arcus, et al., would in the aggregate
beneficially own more than 4.99% of the outstanding shares of
Common Stock.  Therefore, Arcus, et al., cannot exercise any of
the October 2009 Warrants, the January 2010 Warrants, the December

accordingly, do not beneficially own the underlying shares of

Molecules.  Genasense(R) (oblimersen sodium) Injection is the
Company's lead compound from its DNA/RNA Medicines program.  The
leading drug in Genta's Small Molecule program is Ganite(R)
(gallium nitrate injection), which the Company is exclusively
marketing in the U.S. for treatment of symptomatic patients with
cancer related hypercalcemia that is resistant to hydration.  The
Company has developed G4544, an oral formulation of the active
ingredient in Ganite, which has recently entered clinical trials
as a potential treatment for diseases associated with accelerated
bone loss.  The Company is also developing tesetaxel, a novel,
orally absorbed, semi-synthetic taxane that is in the same class
of drugs as paclitaxel and docetaxel.  Ganite and Genasense are
available on a "named-patient" basis in countries outside the
United States.

At June 30, 2009, Genta had $10.2 million in total assets; and
$12.1 million in total current liabilities and $2.46 million in
total long-term liabilities, resulting in $4.33 million in
stockholders' deficit.

In its second quarter 2009 report on Form 10-Q, the Company said
its recurring losses and negative cash flows from operation raise
substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going
concern.

GREEKTOWN HOLDINGS: City of Detroit Serves Document Request
-----------------------------------------------------------
The City of Detroit filed with the Court on September 10, 2009, a
copy of its document production request on the Debtors.  Pursuant
to Rule 34 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, the City seeks
these documents to be produced by the Debtors on or before
October 2, 2009:

  1. All documents relating to any defense by the Debtors,
     whether legal, equitable, factual or other, to certain
     alleged defaults enumerated in the City's Notice of Default
     dated August 10, 2009;

  2. All documents relating to any estimate or assessment made
     by the Debtors of the cost of any proposed cure of any of
     the alleged Defaults;

  3. All documents relating to any proposed cure by the Debtors
     of the alleged Defaults;

  4. All documents relating to the Debtors' decisions to build
     a certain theater space into a "white-box" finish and to
     use the ballroom as a multi-purpose theater space,
     including all documents that describe (i) when those
     decisions were made; (ii) who made those decisions; and
     (iii) why those decisions were made.

  5. All documents relating to any defense, whether legal,
     equitable, factual or other, by the Debtors to the City's
     claim for liquidated damages contained in the Aug. 10
     Notice of Defaults.

The City and the Debtors are currently in dispute with respect to
a Development Agreement related to the development, construction
and operation of Greektown Casino's newest hotel in Detroit.  The
City contended that the Debtors breached their obligations under
the Development Agreement by, among others, failing to complete
construction of the Casino Project and failing to pay certain
development process costs and the gaming tax increase.  The City
subsequently commenced an adversary complaint against the Debtors
with respect to the alleged contract breach.

Another point of contention of the parties is that the Debtors
sought and obtained the Court's permission to assume the
Development Agreement.  The Court only allowed a modification of
the automatic stay to allow the City to file a notice of default,
as to which the City filed on August 10, 2009 and of which a copy
is available for free at http://bankrupt.com/misc/GrktnDefNot.pdf

The Development Agreement Assumption Order is currently under
Appeal by the City.

GREEKTOWN HOLDINGS: Parties Object to Committee Suit vs. Insiders
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors in Greektown
Holdings LLC's cases and Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas have
asked the Court for authority to initiate and prosecute litigation
in pursuit of bonds avoidance claims on behalf of the Debtors'
estates.

Prior to the Petition Date, Greektown Holdings LLC and Greektown
Holdings II LLC issued 10%% Senior Notes due 2013, in the
principal amount of $185 million.

According to Joel D. Applebaum, Esq., at Clark Hill PLC, in
Detroit, Michigan, the Amended Disclosure Statement identifies
uses of cash proceeds of the Senior Notes and reflects
potentially fraudulent transfers from Greektown Holdings to
various insiders or former insiders, including the Pappases, Ted
Gatzaros, and the Kewadin Casinos Gaming Authority in excess of
$165 million.  Mr. Applebaum contends that the transfers of
proceeds from the issuance of the Bonds support colorable and
extremely valuable Avoidance Claims, and that pursuit is likely to
yield substantial recoveries.  The potential defendants in Bonds
Avoidance Claims are insiders or former insiders of the Debtors
who received, in the aggregate in excess of $165 million from a
Debtor without having given any discernable equivalent value in
return, Mr. Applebaum notes.  He adds that the Bond Avoidance
Claims would generate proceeds far greater than any costs incurred
in pursuing them.

                             Responses

These parties filed responses to the Official Committee of
Unsecured Creditors' request to for authority to initiate
and prosecute litigation in pursuit of bonds avoidance claims on
behalf of the Debtors' estates:

  -- Jim and Viola Papas;
  -- Ted and Maria Gatzaros; and
  -- Merrill Lynch Capital Corporation, as administrative agent
     for the Prepetition Lenders and the DIP Lenders.

The Gatzaroses and Merrill Lynch argue that the Committee's
request is an improper and disguised objection to the competing
Plans of Reorganization submitted by the Debtors and Luna
Greektown LLC and Plainfield Asset Management LLC set for
confirmation hearings in early November 2009.

Merrill Lynch points out that the remainder of the Committee's
request becomes a meaningless request to file causes of action
that may be transferred to an as-yet unknown entity in two short
months and may present a conflict of interest with respect to
one of the Committee members.

The Papases contend that the Committee did not provide any
factual support of its claim that the transfers of proceeds from
certain bonds allegedly issued by certain of the Debtors prior to
the Petition Date "support colorable and extremely valuable
Avoidance Claims," and that the potential defendants of the
claims are insiders or former insiders of the Debtors, including
the Papases.

The Papases say they "vehemently" dispute the merits of any
avoidance claims against them as there is no factual or legal
basis for the claims, nor has the Committee alleged anything
"more than mere conjecture, conclusory allegations and self-
serving rhetoric in their motion."

For these reasons, the Objecting Parties ask the Court to deny
the Committee's Request.

GREEKTOWN HOLDINGS: Proposes to Assume Int'l Union CBA
------------------------------------------------------
Greektown Holdings LLC and its affiliates previously entered into
a collective bargaining agreement with the International Union,
Security, Police, Fire Professionals of America Union, which is
the exclusive bargaining representative for all of the Debtors'
non-supervisory security team members, which include all hourly
paid security officers, outside security guards, hotel security
officers, security EMT officers and night club security officers.

According to Daniel J. Weiner, Esq., at Schafer and Weiner PLLC,
in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, the continued existence of the
International Union CBA is critical to the Debtors' ability to
secure the continued services of its workforce and to maintain
normal operations.

Recognizing the current economic challenges facing the Debtors,
parties to the International Union CBA entered into a memorandum
of understanding on June 11, 2009, which modified certain terms
and conditions of the CBA, including permission for the Debtors
to defer wage increases to certain Security Team Members due
under the CBA.

A full-text copy of the CBA Parties' MOU is available for free
at http://bankrupt.com/misc/GrktnSPFPACBA.pdf

By this motion, the Debtors seek the Court's authority to assume
their CBA with the International Union, as modified by the June
2009 Memorandum of Understanding.

HARRAH'S ENTERTAINMENT: Takes In $140MM of Planet Hollywood Debt
----------------------------------------------------------------
Alexandra Berzon and Kris Hudson at The Wall Street Journal report
that Harrah's Entertainment Inc. bought from Goldman Sachs
Mortgage Co. $140 million of the debt tied to the Planet Hollywood
Resort & Casino.

Citing people familiar with the matter, The Journal relates that
Planet Hollywood defaulted on its $860 million mortgage by failing
to make its monthly interest payment, and the mortgage's servicer,
KeyCorp, sent the casino's owners a default notice on Thursday.
According to The Journal, the debt Harah's Entertainment bought is
subordinate to claims from other lenders in any bankruptcy, but
purchasing the debt gives the Company a voice in any talks to
restructure the mortgage.

Las Vegas, Nevada-based Harrah's Entertainment, Inc. --
http://www.harrahs.com/-- operates nearly 40 casinos across the
United States, primarily under the Harrah's(R), Caesars(R) and
Horseshoe(R) brand names; Harrah's also owns the London Clubs
International family of casinos and the World Series of Poker(R).
Private equity firms Apollo Global Management and TPG Capital LP
acquired Harrah's in January for $31 billion.

As of June 30, 2009, the Company had $30.7 billion in total assets
and total current liabilities of $1.71 billion, long-term debt of
$19.3 billion, deferred credits and other of $718.2 million,
deferred income taxes of $5.74 billion, and preferred stock of
$2.46 billion.

As of March 31, 2009, the Company's consolidated condensed balance
sheets showed total assets of $31.9 billion, total liabilities of
$31.1 billion and preferred stock of $2.3 million, resulting to
stockholders' deficit of $1.5 million.

                            *    *    *

The Troubled Company Reporter said June 15, 2009, that Standard &
Poor's Ratings Services raised its corporate credit ratings on
Harrah's Entertainment and Harrah's Operating to 'CCC+' from
'CCC', reflecting S&P's assessment that the recent capital raise,
combined with an amendment to certain terms of HOC's senior
secured credit facilities, has alleviated S&P's concerns that
given S&P's expectation for operating performance this year, HOC
would not be able to remain in compliance with its senior secured
leverage ratio covenant.  In addition, S&P raised the issue-level
rating on HOC's senior secured credit facilities to 'B' (two
notches higher than the 'CCC+' corporate credit rating) from 'B-'.
The recovery rating on these loans remains at '1', indicating
S&P's expectation of very high (90% to 100%) recovery for lenders
in the event of a payment default.

HEALTHSOUTH CORP: Discloses Initial Observations on Q3 2009
-----------------------------------------------------------
HealthSouth Corporation shared its initial observations on the
third quarter of 2009.  These observations are:

     -- Volume: Through August 2009, the Company has continued to
        experience positive discharge growth and remains on track
        to achieve 4+% discharge growth in the second half of
        2009.

     -- Pricing: Quarter-over-quarter comparables are similar.

     -- Expenses: The Company has continued to focus on high-
        quality, cost-effective patient care, and it continues to
        monitor pending Medicare appeals.

The observations were disclosed in a handout the Company prepared
in connection with its participation in the Stifel Nicolaus/John
Hopkins Health Policy Symposium in Baltimore on September 15,
2009.

As part of this symposium, representatives of HealthSouth were to
meet with third parties and distribute copies of the handout,
which address, among other things, the Company's strategy,
objectives, and financial performance and discuss industry trends
and dynamics.

A full-text copy of the handout is available at no charge
at http://ResearchArchives.com/t/s?44ce

The handout includes data published through the Uniform Data
System for Medical Rehabilitation for the second quarter of 2009.
The data shows that the Company continued to grow its market share
during the second quarter of 2009.  The industry information, as
reported through the UDS under the presumptive method on a quarter
lag, showed an average 1.3% increase in discharges for UDS
industry sites (including 90 HealthSouth sites) compared to same
store discharge growth of 4.7% for HealthSouth during the second
quarter of 2009.

The Company uses "same store" comparisons to explain the changes
in certain performance metrics and line items within its financial
statements.  Same store comparisons are calculated based on
hospitals open throughout both the full current periods and
throughout the full prior periods presented.  These comparisons
include the financial results of market consolidation transactions
in existing markets, as it is difficult to determine, with
precision, the incremental impact of these transactions on the
Company's results of operations.

The Company also reiterated its guidance for 2009.

Based in Birmingham, Alabama, HealthSouth Corporation --
http://www.healthsouth.com/-- is the nation's largest provider of
inpatient rehabilitative healthcare services.  Operating in 26
states across the country and in Puerto Rico, HealthSouth serves
patients through its network of inpatient rehabilitation
hospitals, long-term acute care hospitals, outpatient
rehabilitation satellites, and home health agencies.

HealthSouth had $1.88 billion in total assets; and $2.55 billion
in total liabilities, and $387.4 million in convertible perpetual
preferred stock; resulting in $1.05 billion in stockholders'
deficit at June 30, 2009.  The Company's balance sheet at June 30
also showed strained liquidity, with $628.2 million in total
current assets, including $49.8 million in cash and cash
equivalents, on $706.1 million in total current liabilities.

Healthsouth carries a 'B2' long term corporate family rating from
Moody's and a 'B' long term foreign issuer credit rating from
Standard & Poor's.


HHGREGG INC: S&P Affirms Corporate Credit Rating at 'B+'
--------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it affirmed all of its
ratings on Indianapolis-based hhgregg Inc. and subsidiary Gregg
Appliances Inc., including the 'B+' corporate credit and senior
secured term loan ratings, and removed the company's ratings from
CreditWatch, where they were placed with negative implications on
July 9, 2009.  S&P also revised its recovery rating on the term
loan to '3' from '4', indicating expectations of meaningful (50%-
70%) recovery in the event of a payment default or bankruptcy.
Total debt outstanding at June 30, 2009, was approximately
$92.4 million.  The outlook is stable.

Concurrently, S&P assigned its preliminary 'B' and 'B-' senior
unsecured and subordinated ratings, respectively, to Gregg's
$200 million universal shelf filing dated July 14, 2009.

"The ratings on Gregg and subsidiary Gregg Appliances reflect the
company's increased business and operational risk associated with
its significant expansion plan during a period of weak consumer
spending," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Gerald Phelan.
Other factors include an extremely competitive environment, a
partial dependence on technology improvements to drive sales
growth, a narrow business focus, and geographic concentration.
Gregg's historically successful business model, premium product
offering, and recent secondary equity offering, partially offset
these risks.

ISOLAGEN INC: Bankruptcy Plan Became Effective September 3
----------------------------------------------------------
Isolagen, Inc.'s plan of reorganization became effective on
September 3, 2009.

JBS SA: Fitch Places 'B+' Rating on Watch Positive Due to Buyouts
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has placed these ratings of JBS S.A.'s (JBS) on
Rating Watch Positive:

   -- Foreign currency Issuer Default Rating (IDR) 'B+';

   -- Local currency IDR 'B+';

   -- USD275 million outstanding senior notes (due 2011) 'B+/RR4';

   -- USD700 million outstanding senior notes (due 2014) 'B+/RR4';

   -- USD300 million outstanding senior notes (due 2016) 'B+/RR4';

   -- Long-term National Scale rating 'BBB+(bra)'.

The rating action follows the announcement by JBS that it had
reached an agreement to buy 64% of Pilgrim's Pride and also to
merge with Bertin.  These transactions are expected to be entirely
funded with a USD2.5 billion equity issuance in JBS USA and
significantly enhance the competitive position of the company in
the Brazilian market as well as diversify its revenue mix to
different proteins as the acquisition of Pilgrim's Pride provides
JBS with an entry into the poultry business.  These transactions
are expected to close at the end of 2009. Fitch anticipates net
leverage to improve marginally (excluding synergies expected to
exceed USD450 million per year) from its current 2.8 times (x)
(pro forma the Smithfield Beef acquisition) as of June 2009. In
addition, Fitch sees positively JBS planed USD2.0 billion IPO at
its US subsidiary, JBS USA, in the first half of 2010 and it
confirms JBS' strong track record integrating past acquisitions.

For the Pilgrim's Pride transaction JBS plans to pay USD800
million for a 64% stake in the new entity and assume USD1.5
billion of debt.  JBS plans to use USD1.5 billion of its USD2.5
billion equity issuance to make the USD800 million payment and
reduce debt to about USD800 million at Pilgrim's Pride.  This
acquisition to be made through JBS USA increases JBS revenue
generation from its operations in the US and Australia from 70% of
the total to about 75% and adds production capacity in Mexico.
Synergies from this acquisition are expected to be USD200 million.
Pilgrim's Pride is the second largest poultry company in the US
with about 20% market share. This company is expected to generate
more than USD300 million of EBITDA in the latest twelve months
(LTM) ended September 2009 on USD7 billion of revenues. At the end
of 2008, this company filed for Chapter 11 and the JBS acquisition
is part of the reorganization plan of the company that needs to be
approved by the bankruptcy court.

In the merger with Bertin, the Bertin shareholders would receive
JBS stock and debt will be reduced by USD1 billion at Bertin from
the USD2.5 billion JBS equity issuance. Bertin is Brazil's third
largest beef producer with roughly USD400 million of EBITDA on
USD3.5 billion revenues. Synergies of more than USD250 million per
year are expected to be generated primarily from logistics
consolidation and overhead cost reductions. Bertin derives 68% of
revenues from fresh beef production, 13% from leather, 12% from
dairy products and 7% from other businesses. This transaction not
only expands the beef production capacity to Uruguay, Paraguay and
several states in Brazil but also improves the distribution
capacity of the company across Latin America in particular in
Brazil. The merger scrutiny from Brazilian authorities will depend
on the market definition.

As of June 30, 2009, JBS had cash on hand of USD1.18 billion and
USD650 million in credit facilities available at JBS USA compared
with short-term maturities of USD1.24 billion. Total debt was
USD3.19 billion. During October 2008, the company paid USD565
million of cash to acquire Smithfield Beef. For the LTM ended June
2009, JBS' EBITDA was USD607 million. This figure would have been
USD725 million, if Smithfield Beef had been consolidated for all
of the LTM ended June 2009, resulting in a pro forma net leverage
(net debt/EBITDA) ratio of 2.8x compared to 2.0x in 2008 and 3.7x
in 2007.

JBS is one of the world's largest beef producers, with operations
in Brazil, the United States, Argentina, Australia and Italy. The
company is the largest producer and exporter of fresh meat and
meat by-products in Brazil, Argentina and Australia and the third
largest in the U.S. JBS USA concentrates JBS operations in the
U.S. and Australia, which represent roughly 70% of total revenues.

LANDAMERICA FINANCIAL: Fitch Withdraws 'D' Issuer Default Rating
----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has withdrawn the Issuer Default Rating of
LandAmerica Financial Group, Inc., as well as the senior debt
rating:

  -- Issuer Default Rating withdrawn at 'D'.
  -- Senior debt withdrawn at 'CC/RR5'.

LFG is in bankruptcy and Fitch will no longer provide analytical

LANDAMERICA FINANCIAL: Plan Exclusivity Extended Until Oct. 15
--------------------------------------------------------------
After extensive negotiations with the Official Committee of
Unsecured Creditors of LandAmerica 1031 Exchange Services, Inc.,
and LandAmerica Financial Group, Inc., and various other parties-
in-interest, the Debtors filed a consensual Chapter 11 plan and
accompanying Disclosure Statement.  Although the LES Committee
appreciates that additional time may be necessary to solicit the
votes of the Debtors' creditors to accept the Plan, the LES
Committee believes that in light of the Plan recently filed by
the Debtors, any further extension of the Exclusive Filing Period
is wholly unnecessary and inappropriate.  Accordingly, to the
extent the Motion seeks any further extension of the Exclusive
Filing Period, the Motion must be denied, the LES Committee
asserts.

Following a hearing, the Court extends the Debtors' exclusive
right to file a Chapter 11 plan through and including October 15,
2009, and the Debtors' exclusive right to solicit acceptances to
that plan through and including December 15, 2009, without
prejudice to the Debtors' right to petition the Court to terminate
exclusivity if the currently proposed Plan is withdrawn.  The
Debtors are directed to file a form of the formal order of the
Exclusivity Motion, memorializing the Court's decision.

LANDAMERICA FINANCIAL: Seeks Jan. 31 Extension of Removal Period
----------------------------------------------------------------
Debtors LandAmerica Financial Group, Inc., LandAmerica 1031
Exchange Services, Inc., LandAmerica Title Company, and Southland
Title Corporation, Southland Title of Orange County, Southland
Title of San Diego, and LandAmerica Credit Services ask the Court
to extend the time within which they may remove actions, pursuant
to Section 1452 of the Judiciary and Judicial Procedure and Rules
9006 and 9027 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure,
through and including January 31, 2010.

The time within which the Debtors may seek to remove the Actions
is currently set to expire on October 2, 2009 for LAC,
October 15, 2009 for LandAm Credit, and October 27, 2009 for LFG,
LES, LandAm Title, and the Southland Entities.

John H. Maddock III, Esq., at McGuirewoods LLP, in Richmond,
Virginia, asserts that cause exists to extend the time within
which the Debtor may remove the pending Actions.  The Debtors
formerly operated offices all over the United States.
Consequently, the Debtors are named in approximately 285 pending
Actions scattered across the country in different venues.  The
Actions involve, among others, various breaches of contract and
negligence lawsuits, as well as employment and Real Estate
Settlement Procedures Act-related litigation.

Mr. Maddock relates that the Debtors' decisions on whether to
seek removal of any particular Action will depend on a number of
factors, including (i) the importance of the Action to the
expeditious resolution of that particular Debtor's Chapter 11
case, (ii) the time required to complete the Action in its
current venue, and (iii) the progress made to date in the Action.
To make the appropriate determination, the Debtors must analyze
each Action in light of the factors.

Title Company, Southland Title Corporation, Southland Title of
San Diego, Southland Title of Orange County, and LandAmerica
Credit Services, Inc., delivered to the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Eastern District of Virginia their Joint Chapter 11 Plan and
an accompanying Disclosure Statement on September 9, 2009.

LFG Chief Financial Officer G. William Evans relates that the
Plan contemplates the sale of substantially all of the Debtors'
assets in an expeditious manner and the distribution of the sale
proceeds to creditors.

On the Effective Date, the stock of the Debtors will be
cancelled.  A liquidating trust for each Debtor will be created
to prosecute the legal causes of action held by the Debtors, and
to administer the liquidation and distribution of the assets of
each Debtor, including the sale or dissolution of the non-Debtor
subsidiaries of LFG.  Between $2.5 million and $5 million in cash
will be reserved from each of the estates of LFG and LES to fund
the activities of their respective Trusts.

The Trusts will terminate once all the assets they are
liquidating are monetized, distributed or abandoned.

The Plan is a joint plan that does not provide for substantive
consolidation of the Debtors' estates.  On the Effective Date,
the Debtors' estates will not be deemed to be substantively
consolidated for purposes under the Plan.

Mr. Evans notes that the entry of a confirmation order on the
Plan will constitute authorization for the Debtors, their
affiliates, and the Trust Committees, as applicable, to take
these corporate actions necessary or appropriate to consummate
the Plan on and after the Effective Date:

   (a) the adoption of new organizational documents for any
       Debtor;

   (b) the appointment of new officers or directors;

   (c) the termination and cancellation of any outstanding
       instrument, document or agreement evidencing Claims or
       Interests in the Debtors;

   (d) all transfers of Assets that are to occur pursuant to the
       Plan;

   (e) the incurrence of all obligations contemplated by the
       Plan and the making of all Plan Distributions;

   (f) the formation of the LES Trust, the qualification of the
       LES Trustee and the LES Trust Committee and the transfers
       to the LES Trust as contemplated by the Plan;

   (g) the formation of the LFG Trust, the qualification of the
       LFG Trustee and the LFG Trust Committee and the transfers
       to the LFG Trust as contemplated by the Plan;

   (h) the formation of an SD or Subsidiary Debtor Trust for
       each Subsidiary Debtor, the qualification of the SD
       Trustees and the transfers to the SD Trusts as
       contemplated by the Plan;

   (i) the qualification or appointment of the LFG Governor;

   (j) the implementation of all settlements and compromises as
       set forth in or contemplated by the Plan;

   (k) entering into any transactions permitted by applicable
       law; and

   (l) the winding-up of any Debtor or the merger of any Debtor
       into another Debtor.

On the Plan Effective Date, the positions of the current
directors of the Debtors, or in the case of a governing body
created by a partnership agreement, limited liability company
agreement or similar agreement, the members of the governing body
of each Debtor will be eliminated, and each Governor will be
terminated.  The powers and duties of the Governors of (i) LFG
will vest in the LFG Governor, (ii) each LFG Subsidiary Debtor
that has a Governor will vest in the LFG Trustee, and (iii) LES
and each LES Subsidiary Debtor that has a Governor will vest in
the LES Trustee, and the applicable Trustee will be the presiding
officer and the sole Governor of each applicable Debtor.

After the Effective Date, Post-Effective Date LFG will commence
dissolution proceedings pursuant to the applicable laws of the
Commonwealth of Virginia.

LANDAMERICA FINANCIAL: To Sell Onestop Assets to T&F Acquisition
----------------------------------------------------------------
Debtor LandAmerica Financial Group, Inc., sought and obtained from
the Court permission to:

  (a) execute a shareholder consent with respect to the sale of
      LandAmerica OneStop, Inc.'s Tax and Flood assets to T&F
      Acquisition Group, LLC; and

  (b) upon prior consent of the LFG Creditors Committee, execute
      shareholder consents as necessary with respect to the
      future sales of assets by other non-debtor subsidiaries.

OneStop is a wholly owned direct subsidiary of LFG comprised of
several divisions, including LandAmerica Tax & Flood, LandAmerica
Default Services, LandAmerica BackInTheBlack, and LandAmerica
Origination Services.  OneStop offers the national and regional
mortgage lending community a full range of integrated residential
real estate services and the ability to manage the delivery of
those services through a centralized source.

LandAmerica Tax & Flood provides basic tax services, enhanced tax
services, in-source tax services, tax certification services, and
outsource tax services.  In total, the tax services monitored
approximately 4.7 million loans and facilitated the payment of
$5.7 billion to tax entities on behalf of its customers in 2008.
LandAmerica Tax and Flood estimates that it will monitor
approximately 3.2 million loans and facilitate the payment of
about $3 billion to tax entities on behalf of its customers in
2009.

LFG completed its initial company overview of OneStop and its
respective divisions, including the T&F Assets, on January 19,
2009.  One week later, it opened a data room as part of its
effort to market OneStop as a complete package deal involving all
of the unit's divisions.  After approximately six months of
marketing, LFG determined that selling the OneStop Divisions as a
package was not feasible given current market conditions and
instead decided to sell the assets of certain of the OneStop
Divisions on a piecemeal basis.

Accordingly, LFG has ultimately decided to sell the T&F Assets to
T&F AG for $6,000,000 and pursuant to certain terms set forth in
LFG's asset purchase agreement with T&F AG.  The T&F Assets
include OneStop's right, title and interest in and to:

  * Accounts Receivable;

  * The rights of OneStop under the certain contracts to be
    assumed;

  * (i) All the equipment, machinery, furniture, computers,
    laptops, servers and related hardware, facsimile machines,
    duplicating machines, fixtures and improvements, supplies,
    tangible property and vehicles, in each case owned by
    OneStop and used in the property tax and flood zone
    information monitoring and reporting business as of the
    closing date, (ii) any rights of OneStop to the warranties
    and licenses received from manufacturers and OneStop of
    the subject items, and (iii) any related claims, credits,
    rights of recovery and set-off with respect to it;

  * The Intellectual Property primarily relating to the
    Business, including the name "LERETA Corp.";

  * All cash held by OneStop on account of customers of the
    Business;

  * Cash in an amount no less than $4,000,000, which amount
    excludes all cash held by OneStop on account of customers
    of the Business;

  * To the extent transferable, all licenses, permits,
    franchises, authorizations and approvals issued or granted
    to OneStop by any Governmental Entity and relating primarily
    to the Business;

  * Shares of OneStop; and

  * All other assets, properties, and rights of every kind
    primarily related to the Business on the closing date.

Under the APA, T&F AG will also be assuming certain liabilities,
which include:

  (a) all accounts payables and accrued expenses of OneStop
      as of the closing date related to the Business, which have
      been incurred in the ordinary course of business and
      OneStop's general overhead expenses which will be updated
      as of the Closing Date;

  (b) all liabilities arising from acts after the Closing with
      respect to cash held on account of customers of the
      Business; and

  (c) all liabilities, obligations and duties to perform under
      any of the Assumed Contracts first arising from and after
      the Closing.

A full-text copy of the T&F APA is available for free at:

            http://bankrupt.com/misc/LandAm_T&FPSA.pdf

The terms of a Court-approved May 2009 settlement agreement among
LFG, the LFG Creditors Committee and the Pension Benefit Guaranty
Corporation do not apply to OneStop's sale of its T&F Assets to
T&F AG.  The sale, however, does not involve the Debtors selling
any direct or indirect subsidiary.

Dion W. Hayes, Esq., at McGuirewoods LLP, in Richmond, Virginia,
relates that with respect to the OneStop Shareholder Consent and
the Future Shareholder Consents, LFG, in its capacity as the 100%
shareholder of the applicable LFG Subsidiary, will act through
its board.  Under the business judgment rule, Mr. Hayes points
out, a court will not interfere with the judgment of a board of
directors unless there is a showing of "gross and palpable
overreaching."

Mr. Hayes adds that the sale of the T&F Assets on an individual
basis will generate revenue for the benefit of the LFG estate,
which in turn will benefit LFG's creditors, much more so than
would be realized as a result of a liquidation of the T&F Assets.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: SIPA Trustee Wants Barclays Sale Order Modified
----------------------------------------------------------------
James W. Giddens, Trustee for the Liquidation of Lehman Brothers
Inc. under the Securities Investor Protection Act, issued a
statement on the filing of a motion pursuant to Rule 60(b) of the
Federal Rules of Civil Procedure with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the Southern District of New York.

"I, as the Trustee, continue to meet my principal duty under the
U.S. Securities Investor Protection Act to return property to
public customers and to maximize assets available for return while
being fair to the rights of other parties.

"I disagree with the claims of Barclays Capital Inc. to billions
of dollars in additional assets that are customer property and
not, in my view, authorized by the sale of Lehman Brothers Inc. to
Barclays, which was approved by the Bankruptcy Court on September
19, 2008. The transfer of these assets to Barclays would create an
unfair windfall for Barclays at the expense of public customers.

"I am seeking to protect customer property and asking the Court to
reject and grant relief from Barclays' claims based on the
documents and disclosures made to the Court when the order for the
sale of Lehman Brothers Inc. was approved."

The Debtors have filed a motion pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 60 and
Fed. R. Bankr. P. 9024, to modify the September 20, 2008 order
approving the sale of their North American assets to Barclays.
The motion is filed under seal.  Mr. Giddens also filed his own
Rule 60B Motion in the SIPA Proceedings.

According to Mr. Giddens, based on the Rule 2004 discovery
conducted to date, the Trustee joins in the LBHI Motion insofar as
it relates to certain undisclosed benefits that Barclays realized
in connection with the sale transaction, including (i) a multi-
billion dollar discount that Barclays obtained on certain
securities included in the sale transaction, (ii) Barclays'
failure to pay all of the bonus amount that it agreed to pay under
the Asset Purchase Agreement, and (iii) Barclays' failure to
assume $1.5 billion in contract cure liabilities.  The Trustee
reserves his rights with respect to the undisclosed benefits
described in the LBHI Motion.

The Trustee said his Motion focuses on the billions of dollars in
additional assets that are in particular dispute between the
Trustee and Barclays and immediately affect the Trustee's ability
to make distributions to customers. In his Motion, the Trustee
seeks, among other things, an order finding that his
interpretation of the sale documents and the Sale Orders is
correct and that, therefore, Barclays is not entitled to these
assets, or in the alternative, for relief under Rule 60.

Pursuant to Rule 60(b), the court may relieve a party or its legal
representative from a final judgment, order, or proceeding for
these reasons:

     (1) mistake, inadvertence, surprise, or excusable neglect;

     (2) newly discovered evidence that, with reasonable
         diligence, could not have been discovered in time to move
         for a new trial under Rule 59(b);

     (3) fraud (whether previously called intrinsic or extrinsic),
         misrepresentation, or misconduct by an opposing party;

     (4) the judgment is void;

     (5) the judgment has been satisfied, released, or discharged;
         it is based on an earlier judgment that has been reversed
         or vacated; or applying it prospectively is no longer
          equitable; or

     (6) any other reason that justifies relief.

LITHIUM TECHNOLOGY: Amends Annual Report to Correct Errors
----------------------------------------------------------
Lithium Technology Corporation filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission Amendment No. 2 on Form 10-K/A to correct
certain typographical errors in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for
the year ended December 31, 2008.

The Company said "Less valuation allowance" is $24,358,000, no
$2,358,000 as reported.  The Company said this typographical error
did not affect any of the other figures reported in the financial
statements.

The Company said "Discount related to beneficial conversion
feature of Preferred Stock" is ($2,147,000), not $0 as reported.
The Company said this typographical error caused the "Net Loss to
Common Shareholders," the "Comprehensive Income (Loss)" and "Basic
and diluted loss per share" reported in the Form 10-K to be
incorrectly stated as ($6,414,000), ($5,549,000) and ($0.00),
respectively.  The correct amount of the "Net Loss to Common
Shareholders," the "Comprehensive Income (Loss)" and "Basic and
diluted loss per share" is $(8,561,000), $(7,696,000) and ($0.01),
respectively.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on August 31, 2009,
Lithium Technology filed with the SEC Commission Amendment No. 1
to its December 2008 Annual Report.

Lithium Technology, from January to December 2008, raised
approximately $6.8 million in debt financing transactions and
approximately $500,000 through the exercise by a holder of
40 million outstanding warrants.   Lithium Technology is
continuing to seek other financing initiatives, needing to raise
additional capital to meet working capital needs, for the
repayment of debt and for capital expenditures.

Lithium Technology believes if it raises approximately $7 million
in debt and equity financings, it would have sufficient funds to
meet its needs for working capital, repayment of debt and for
capital expenditures over the next 12 months and to meet expansion
plans.  With the funds the Company will be able to expand the
production capacity to approximately 20MWh per annum and to expand
battery assembly activities in both the U.S. and in Europe.  After
these investments, the existing production facility in Nordhausen
will not be able to expand even further.  If after that the
Company would like to extend the production capacity substantially
it will need substantially more new capital to build this new
facility.  The ultimate location will depend on the regional
market needs.

"No assurance can be given that we will be successful in
completing any financings at the minimum level necessary to fund
our capital equipment, debt repayment or working capital
requirements, or at all.  If we are unsuccessful in completing
these financings, we will not be able to meet our working capital,
debt repayment or capital equipment needs or execute our business
plan.  In such case we will assess all available alternatives
including a sale of our assets or merger, the suspension of
operations and possibly liquidation, auction, bankruptcy, or other
measures," Lithium Technology said.

Lithium Technology noted that since inception, it has incurred
substantial operating losses and expect to incur additional
operating losses over the next few years.  As of December 31,
2008, Lithium Technology had an accumulated deficit of
approximately $137,000,000.  It has financed operations since
inception primarily through equity financings, loans from
shareholders and other related parties, loans from silent partners
and bank borrowings secured by assets.

The June 11, 2009 audit report of Amper, Politziner & Mattia LLP,
in Edison, New Jersey, raised substantial doubt about the
Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

The Company posted a net loss of $6,414,000 for the year ended
December 31, 2008, from a net loss of $24,391,000 in 2007.

Revenues from product sales increased to $4,167,000 or 59% in the
year ended December 31, 2008 from $2,609,000 in the same period in
2007.

As of December 31, 2008, the Company had total assets of
$11,107,000, and total liabilities of $21,897,000, resulting in
stockholders deficit of $10,790,000.

LOUISIANA HOSPITAL: Leases' Forum Selection Clause Not Controlling
------------------------------------------------------------------
Westlaw reports that a forum selection clause in equipment leases
and guaranty agreements precluded the guarantors of a debtor's
lease obligations from arguing that it would be for the
convenience of the parties to transfer venue, from the
contractually specified forum of Minnesota to the judicial
district where the debtor's bankruptcy case was pending, of a
proceeding brought by an equipment lessor to recover on their
guarantees.  Nevertheless, while guarantors were barred from
asserting that any forum other than that contractually agreed on
was more convenient for the parties, the court could still
consider whether a transfer was warranted in the interests of
justice and for the convenience of witnesses.  Creekridge Capital,
LLC v. Louisiana Hosp. Center, LLC, --- B.R. ----, 2009 WL 2600763
(D. Minn.).

An involuntary Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. E.D. La. Case No. 09-
11346) was filed against Louisiana Hospital Center, L.L.C., on
May 7, 2009.


LYONDELL CHEMICAL: Lenders Oppose New $7.1 Bil. Claim by Creditors
------------------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors of Lyondell Chemical
Co. and its affiliates in July commenced a lawsuit against
Citibank N.A., Deutsche Bank, and other banks that funded the 2007
acquisition of Lyondell Chemical Company by Basell AF S.C.A.
Having accumulated heavy debt because of the merger,
LyondellBasell was in a full-blown liquidity crisis and was
running out of money to fund its operations only three months
following the merger.  The Creditors Committee asserted claims of,
among other things, fraudulent transfer, breach of fiduciary duty,
avoidance of unperfected senior liens.

The Creditors Committee has asked the Bankruptcy Court handling
Lyondell's Chapter 11 cases that it be allowed to amend its
complaint to, among other things, that the Committee seeks
avoidance of all funded obligations incurred in connection with
the December 2007 merger and not solely the avoidance of those
liens and obligations to Lyondell shareholders or were paid out as
advisory, professional or transactional fees.

                        Lenders' Objection

LeverageSource III, S.a.r.l.; Citibank, N.A.; Citibank
International plc; Citigroup Global Markets Inc.; Goldman Sachs
Credit Partners, L.P.; Goldman Sachs International; Merrill
Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Inc.; Merrill Lynch Capital
Corporation; UBS Securities LLC; ABN AMRO Inc.; and ABN AMRO
Bank, N.V. -- the Financing Party Defendants -- and the Ad Hoc
Group of Secured Lenders composed of Ares Management, Bank of
Scotland Plc; DZ Bank AG, Deutsche Zentral-Genossenschaftbank,
and Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. LLC complain that after three
months since entry of the Standing Order, the Official Committee
of Unsecured Creditors now seek to amend its original complaint
to assert $7.1 billion of newly-minted fraudulent transfer
claims, which were excluded from the original complaint.

David M. Zensky, Esq., at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP, in
New York, insists that the dollar-for-dollar repayment of an
antecedent debt simply can not be avoided as a fraudulent
transfer.  More importantly, he asserts that the Committee's
proposed new claims will only burden the Debtors' estates with
time-consuming and expensive litigation, and are time-barred
under the Final DIP Order.  He reminds the Court that the
Committee expressly conceded the validity of those transfers and
carved-out those very same claims from the original Complaint.
Even if the Court determines that the proposed new claims fit
within the existing standing, they are still impermissible, he
says.  The mere fact that the Committee came to believe that it
may not be able to realize any meaningful recovery unless it
actually succeeds in avoiding $7.1 billion in transfers is no
reason to grant it standing to pursue previously excluded claims
that have no basis in law or fact, Mr. Zensky maintains.

Accordingly, the Financing Defendants ask the Court to deny the
Committee's Motion to Amend Complaint.

                      About Lyondell Chemical

LyondellBasell Industries is one of the world's largest polymers,
petrochemicals and fuels companies.  It is the global leader in
polyolefins technology, production and marketing; a pioneer in
propylene oxide and derivatives; and a significant producer of
fuels and refined products, including biofuels.  Through research
and development, LyondellBasell develops innovative materials and
technologies that deliver exceptional customer value and products
that improve quality of life for people around the world.
Headquartered in The Netherlands, LyondellBasell --
http://www.lyondellbasell.com/-- is privately owned by Access
Industries.

Basell AF and Lyondell Chemical Company merged operations in 2007
to form LyondellBasell Industries, the world's third largest
independent chemical company.  LyondellBasell became saddled with
debt as part of the US$12.7 billion merger.  On January 6, 2009,
LyondellBasell Industries' U.S. operations and one of its European
holding companies -- Basell Germany Holdings GmbH -- filed
voluntary petitions to reorganize under Chapter 11 of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Code to facilitate a restructuring of the company's
debts.  The case is In re Lyondell Chemical Company, et al.,
Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Lead Case No. 09-10023).  Seventy-nine Lyondell
entities, including Equistar Chemicals, LP, Lyondell Chemical
Company, Millennium Chemicals Inc., and Wyatt Industries, Inc.
filed for Chapter 11.  In May 2009, one of the cases was dismissed
-- Case No. 09-10068 -- because it is duplicative of Case No. 09-
10040 relating to Debtor Glidden Latin America Holdings.

The Hon. Robert E. Gerber presides over the case.  Deryck A.
Palmer, Esq., at Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP, in New York,
serves as the Debtors' bankruptcy counsel.  Evercore Partners
serves as financial advisors, and Alix Partners and its subsidiary
AP Services LLC, serves as restructuring advisors.  AlixPartners'
Kevin M. McShea acts as the Debtors' Chief Restructuring Officer.
Clifford Chance LLP serves as restructuring advisors to the
European entities.  Lyondell Chemical estimated that consolidated
assets total US$27.12 billion and debts total US$19.34 billion as
of the bankruptcy filing date.

Lyondell has obtained approximately US$8 billion in DIP financing
to fund continuing operations.  The DIP financing includes two
credit agreements: a US$6.5 billion term loan, which comprises a
US$3.25 billion in new loans and a US$3.25 billion roll-up of
existing loans; and a US$1.57 billion asset-backed lending
facility.

Luxembourg-based LyondellBasell Industries AF S.C.A. and another
affiliate were voluntarily added to Lyondell Chemical's
reorganization filing under Chapter 11 on April 24, 2009, in order
to seek protection against claims by certain financial and U.S.
trade creditors.  On May 8, 2009, LyondellBasell Industries added
13 non-operating entities to Lyondell Chemical Company's
reorganization filing under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy
Code.  All of the entities are U.S. companies and were added to
the original Chapter 11 filing for administrative purposes.  The
filings will have no impact on current business or operations as
none of the entities manufactures or sells products.

LYONDELL CHEMICAL: LyondellBasell Incurs $350MM Loss for Q2
-----------------------------------------------------------
LyondellBasell Industries AF S.C.A. posted quarterly financial
results for the quarter ended June 30, 2009.  The report was
prepared on August 27, 2009, but was made available on
LyondellBasell's Web site on September 12, 2009.

LyondellBasell had operating income of $89 million in the second
quarter 2009 compared to operating income of $428 million in the
second quarter 2008.  The decrease reflected significantly lower
product margins and sales volumes due to weaker global market
conditions in the second quarter compared to the same period,
which was only partly offset by the benefit of LyondellBasell's
cost reduction program.

Moreover, LyondellBasell had a loss from continuing operations of
$353 million in the second quarter 2009 compared to a loss from
continuing operations of $1,012 million in the first quarter
2009.  The second quarter 2009 included Chapter 11 reorganization
costs of $81 million, after tax, while first quarter 2009 results
included Chapter 11 reorganization costs of $616 million, after
tax, including $430 million related to the write off of the
carrying value of the ethylene glycol facility in Beaumont,
Texas, and the olefins plant at Chocolate Bayou, Texas.
Underlying operating results improved $150 million, after tax,
primarily due to higher polymers segment sales volumes and
product margins and higher profitability in the technology and
R&D segment.  Lower refining profitability due to weaker margins
was substantially offset by higher profitability in gasoline
blending components, primarily due to seasonally higher product
margins.

                        July 2009 Results

LyondellBasell Vice President for Investor Relations Douglas Pike
shared with the investors the company's results for the month of
July 2009.

Mr. Pike disclosed that July 2009 results are well ahead of plan.
He related that refining operated near break-even EBITDAR.  He
also said that oxyfuels margins remained strong and on-track
with prior years.  As for the chemicals segment, he said that
there are improved olefin margins as naphtha economics improved.
Intermediates continued good results and improved propylene
oxide volumes.  With respect to polymers, he further disclosed
that outstanding results remain in-time with solid May/June
results.

As for the third quarter of 2009, Mr. Pike stated that
LyondellBasell expects recent month trends will continue.
He cited that LyondellBasell foresees weak refining and
seasonally consistent oxyfuels.  LyondellBasell further
anticipates that chemicals consistent with past several
months and co-products will remain tight.  However, he said
that LyondellBasell expects that polymers will continue
to benefit from U.S. polyethylene export opportunities.

LYONDELL CHEMICAL: Employs Zelle Hofmann as Counsel
---------------------------------------------------
Lyondell Chemical Co. and its affiliates sought and obtained the
Court's authority to employ Zelle Hofman Voelbel & Mason, LLP, as
their special counsel for limited purposes, nunc pro tunc to
January 6, 2009.

Zelle Hofmann has served as Equistar Chemicals, LP's counsel in
an action it commenced against Dresser-Rand Company pending in
the District Court for the 11th Judicial District, Harris County,
Texas.  The Action involves Equistar's claims for property damage
and business interruption losses resulting from the catastrophic
failures of certain components of production equipment at
Equistar's chemical plant in Channelview, Texas, in April and May
1999.  Moreover, Zelle Hofmann attorneys continue to provide
legal services in connection with the Dresser-Rand Litigation as
they prepare for the impending retrial of the case.

Thus, as the Debtors' special counsel, Zelle Hofman will provide
these services:

  (a) conducting discovery in the Dresser-Land Litigation,
      including written discovery, production of documents, and
      depositions of fact and expert witnesses;

  (b) retaining and working with expert witnesses in preparation
      for the retrial of the Dresser-Rand Litigation;

  (c) preparing pretrial motions and briefs in the Dresser-Rand
      Litigation, including motions for summary judgment,
      motions to exclude or limit the testimony of expert
      witnesses, and motions in limine;

  (d) prosecuting and retrying Equistar's claims in the Dresser-
      Rand Litigation;

  (e) participating in any appeal and cross-appeal of any
      judgment or ruling rendered in the Dresser-Rand
      Litigation; and

  (f) pursuing the enforcement of any judgment rendered in
      Equistar's favor in the Dresser-Rand Litigation.

Equistar agreed to pay Zelle Hofmann 30% of any gross recovery up
to $5,000,000 and 25% of any gross recovery in excess of
$5,000,000.  Equistar also agreed to reimburse Zelle Hofmann for
75.57% of the expenses incurred in connection with the Dresser-
Rand Litigation.

Richard G. Urquhart, Esq., a partner at Zelle Hofmann, disclosed
that, upon review, his firm does not hold or represent any
interest adverse to the Debtors or their estates with respect to
matters on which his firm is to be engaged.  At best, he
maintained that Zelle Hofmann is a "disinterested person" as the
term is defined under Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code.

LYONDELL CHEMICAL: Hires Scott-Macon as Financial Advisor
---------------------------------------------------------
Lyondell Chemical Co. and its affiliates sought and obtained the
Court's permission to employ Scott-Macon, Ltd., as their financial
advisor for limited purposes, nunc pro tunc to the Petition Date.

Scott-Macon has been employed specifically to assist in
evaluating a potential sale of Debtor Millennium Specialty
Chemicals, Inc.'s fragrance and flavors business.  Since November
2008, Scott-Macon has worked closely with Debtor Millennium
Specialty Chemicals, Inc.' fragrance and flavors business in
exploring various sales options to realize maximum value for the
F&F Business.  Indeed, if Millennium Specialty will hire
financial advisors other than Scott-Macon, parties-in-interest
would be prejudiced by the time and expense necessary to
familiarize other financial advisors with the intricacies of the
F&F Business and its operations, the Debtors said.

As the Debtors' financial advisor, Scott-Macon will provide these
services:

  (a) familiarize itself with Millennium Specialty, its
      business, operations, properties, financial condition,
      management and prospects;

  (b) prepare a memorandum for distribution to prospective
      transaction parties, describing the Debtors, their
      businesses, operations, properties, financial condition
      and prospects, including a memorandum to sell the F&F
      Business;

  (c) identify, with the assistance and review of Millennium
      Specialty Prospective Transaction Parties who might be
      interested in entering into a Transaction involving the
      F&F Business;

  (d) develop with Millennium Specialty, a marketing program
      for the sale of Millennium Specialty and, with Millennium
      Specialty's prior approval, contract Prospective
      Transaction Parties;

  (e) coordinate, in consultation with Millennium Specialty's
      counsel, the execution of confidentiality agreements with
      Prospective Transaction Parties, the distribution of
      confidential information memoranda, the scheduling of
      meetings and the response to due diligence requests of
      those parties within the parameters established by
      the marketing program developed;

  (f) prepare, with the assistance, review and final approval of
      Millennium Specialty, all presentations and speaker notes
      for Millennium Specialty and its management for formal
      presentations to Prospective Transaction Parties;

  (g) coordinate the receipt of initial indications of interest
      from Prospective Transaction Parties, as well as final
      indications of interest and advise Millennium Specialty in
      the evaluation of those indications as part of Millennium
      Specialty's selection of a Transaction party finalist;

  (h) assist Millennium Specialty with discussions, negotiations
      and final due diligence with the selected Transaction
      party though documentation and closing of a Transaction;
      and

  (i) establish an electronic data room with information for
      Transaction parties and provide support to manage the data
      room.

The Debtors will pay fees for services rendered by Scott-Macon.
In the event that a Transaction occurs, Millennium Specialty will
pay Scott-Macon by wire transfer on the day of the closing of the
Transaction a cash fee equal to:

                                    Percentage Fee on Total
         Total Transaction Value       Transaction Value
         -----------------------    -----------------------
         More than $160 million              0.50%
           $160 to $190 million              0.70%
           $190 to $210 million              0.90%
         More than $210 million              1.20%

Scott-Macon also will also be reimbursed for reasonable out-of-
pocket expenses incurred.

Allan M. Benton, vice chairman at Scott-Macon, assures the Court
that his firm does not hold or represent any other entity having
an adverse interest in connection with the Debtors' Chapter 11
cases.  He assures the Court that Scott-Macon is a "disinterested
person" as the term is defined under Section 101(14) of the
Bankruptcy Code.

MEDIMEDIA USA: Moody's Gives Negative Outlook; Affirms 'B2' Rating
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service changed the ratings outlook for
MediMedia USA, Inc., to negative from stable and affirmed its B2
corporate family rating.

The outlook change reflects concerns over MediMedia's weakened
liquidity profile, which resulted primarily from the EBITDA
decline that occurred in 2009 despite significant investments in
capital expenditures and acquisitions over the past several years.
Furthermore, the potential for shifting spending patterns from
pharmaceutical companies creates some uncertainty regarding
MediMedia's long term growth potential, given its reliance on this
customer base for much of its revenue.  The combination of
performance deterioration and increased capital expenditures
contributed to negative free cash flow, greater than projected
revolver borrowings, and a limited cushion of compliance under
financial covenants.  Moody's would likely downgrade the ratings
based on expectations for continued cash consumption and an
inability to achieve a greater cushion of covenant compliance.

Moody's affirmed all other ratings, and a summary of the actions
follows.

MediMedia USA, Inc.

  -- Outlook, Changed To Negative From Stable
  -- Affirmed B2 Corporate Family Rating
  -- Affirmed B2 Probability of Default Rating
  -- Affirmed Ba3 senior secured bank rating, LGD 2, 29%
  -- Affirmed Caa1 rating on senior subordinated notes, LGD 5, 83%

MediMedia's aggressive expansion strategy (including both
acquisitions and organic investments) contributed to high leverage
and negative free cash flow, and the B2 corporate family rating
incorporates this financial risk.  Furthermore, recent revenue
declines, albeit due partially to economic conditions, raise
concerns that the investments will not yield desired returns.  The
rating also reflects the company's lack of scale and reliance upon
healthcare and pharmaceutical spending for much of its revenue,
with some customer concentration.  MediMedia's established client
relationships with high renewal rates, its strong credibility with
pharmaceutical marketers and a degree of revenue stability from
long term contracts support the ratings.

The most recent rating action for MediMedia was on October 13,
2006, when Moody's assigned first assigned ratings, including the
B2 corporate family rating, to MediMedia.

MediMedia's ratings were assigned by evaluating factors Moody's
believe are relevant to the credit profile of the issuer, such as
i) the business risk and competitive position of the company
versus others within its industry, ii) the capital structure and
financial risk of the company, iii) the projected performance of
the company over the near to intermediate term, and iv)
management's track record and tolerance for risk.  These
attributes were compared against other issuers both within and
outside of MediMedia's core industry and MediMedia's ratings are
believed to be comparable to those of other issuers of similar
credit risk.

Headquartered in Chatham, New Jersey, MediMedia USA, Inc.,
provides health information and services that inform consumers,
physicians, and other healthcare decision makers.  Its annual
revenue is approximately $300 million.

MERRILL LYNCH: Ex-Brokerage Chief Wants None-Compete Deal Waived
----------------------------------------------------------------
Patricia Hurtado and Joshua Fineman at Bloomberg News reports that
former Merrill Lynch & Co. brokerage chief Robert McCann will ask
New York State judge to lift BofA's non-compete clause to force
the bank to let him take another job.

Susanne Craig at The Wall Street Journal relates that Mr. McCann
is being hired by UBS AG as head chief of its U.S. brokerage
force, and people familiar with the matter said that he was slated
to start there in late August.

Mr. McCann said in court documents that BofA fired him without
cause after rejecting his offer to resign, which he thinks is part
of vengeful conduct intended to punish and humiliate him for
trying to quit.  Mr. McCann, Merrill's former brokerage chief,
says in court documents that following the merger, his role at the
merged company was substantially diminished.  Mr. McCann filed a
lawsuit against BofA in August, saying that he will suffer
irreparable harm.

According to court documents, Mr. McCann said, "BAC is now
threatening to enforce a non-competition clause and prevent me
from accepting the opportunity to go back to work in a 'once in a
lifetime' role."

Mr. McCann said in court documents that BofA was required to
purchase his Merrill Lynch shares for more than $18 million after
firing him, but hasn't done so.

BofA, citing a September 27, 2008 e-mail Mr. McCann sent to a
colleague, said that his claim that he left the firm for good
reason is "conceptually flawed", court documents state.  BofA said
that Mr. McCann provided no evidence to support his claims that he
will lose a once in a lifetime opportunity and that he should wait
four months until January 31, 2010, when the non-compete clause
expires.

The Journal reports that in August BofA hired Sallie Krawcheck,
the former chief financial officer of Citigroup Inc., to run the
division, which at the time of the merger housed approximately
16,000 brokers.  The Journal notes that it is likely that when Mr.
McCann joins a rival, he might look to hire some of Merrill's top
producers and lure away big clients, which could be costly to
Sallie Krawcheck, whom BofA hired in August for Merrill's
brokerage force, as she works to find her footing.

MERRILL LYNCH: House Wants SEC Chief to Testify on Settlement
-------------------------------------------------------------
Kara Scannell at The Wall Street Journal reports that the House
Oversight Committee has asked U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission Chairperson Mary Schapiro to testify about the
settlement with Bank of America Corp. at a hearing later this
month.

As reported by the TCR on September 15, 2009, U.S. District Judge
Jed Rakoff in Manhattan rejected BofA's $33 million settlement
with the SEC over Merrill Lynch & Co. bonuses.  Judge Rakoff
ordered a February 1 trial on the SEC's lawsuit against BofA.

On the allegations that BofA shareholders were deceived by a proxy
statement into thinking no bonuses would be paid at Merrill Lynch
& Co., Judge Rakoff asked why the SEC didn't go after individuals,
The Journal relates.  According to the report, the SEC said it
didn't have the evidence to pursue bank executives.  Lawyers
drafted the proxy filing, the report says, citing bank executives.

According to The Journal, SEC said it sought to properly balance
the harm to shareholders, who would ultimately bear the cost of
the settlement, with the need to deter wrongdoers.

Citing Wayne State University Law School professor Peter Henning,
The Journal states that after interviewing about a dozen
executives, the SEC stopped its investigation, which suggests that
the agency "will bow to expedience.  That doesn't restore your
reputation very well.  They were hoping to slip a quick and dirty
settlement past the judge and got called on it" and the ruling
might cause other federal judges to ask tougher questions of
future SEC settlements.

MERRILL LYNCH: Five Directors Get Subpoenaed by Attorney General
----------------------------------------------------------------
New York state attorney general Andrew Cuomo has issued subpoenas
to five directors on Bank of America Corp.'s audit committee at
the time of the bank's purchase of Merrill Lynch, Liz Rappaport,
Dan Fitzpatrick, and Joann S. Lublin at The Wall Street Journal
report.

Citing a person familiar with the matter, The Journal relates that
audit-committee members include Walter Massey and retired Army
General Tommy Franks.  The Journal states that three of the five
audit-committee members at the time of the shareholder vote --
Gen. Franks; Spartanburg, S.C., Mayor William Barnet III; and John
Collins -- have since resigned from the board as part of a
boardroom turnover.

According to The Journal, Mr. Cuomo said that he wonders where the
boards were in this financial crisis, and whether BofA directors
"protected the rights of shareholders, were they misled, or were
they little more than rubber stamps for management's decision-
making".

The Journal says that Mr. Cuomo will subpoena all 15 of BofA's
directors as of early December, when shareholders approved the
deal.  The report states that Mr. Cuomo is considering possible
civil fraud charges against BofA CEO Kenneth Lewis and will

The Journal quoted BofA spokesperson as saying, "We will continue
to cooperate with the attorney general's office as we maintain
that there is no basis for charges against either the company or
individual members of the management team."

MMC ENERGY: Karl Miller Says Fraud Claims Dismissed
---------------------------------------------------
Karl W. Miller said September 15 that the pending federal suit
brought by MMC Energy, Inc., against him, its founder and former
Chairman and CEO, was dismissed almost in its entirety by the
Federal Court in its September 14, 2009 decision.  The Court
granted Mr. Miller's motion to dismiss the Company's suit against
him on all claims except for breach of contract.

The Federal Court ordered that all of the Company's claims of
wrongdoing by Mr. Miller -- i.e. fraud and tortuous interference
with advantageous business relations -- be dismissed with
prejudice, indicating that the Company failed to substantiate
these false claims with any evidence whatsoever, and was only
"vaguely" able to allege injuries sustained.

The Court's decision held that the Company failed to demonstrate
that Mr. Miller made any misrepresentations or omissions with
respect to any duty he owed to the Company after leaving.  The
Court also denied the Company's motion seeking a default judgment
against Mr. Miller.

As to the remaining allegation of breach of contract, Mr. Miller,
will vigorously defend himself against this claim and the evidence
will demonstrate that this claim too is without merit.

Mr. Miller has filed a Federal action against the Company and its
Directors in the United States District Court for the Southern
District of Florida for damages in excess of $5,000,000 in
addition to substantial punitive damages.

The Federal action filed by Mr. Miller alleges that George
Rountree III, the lead independent director of the Company and
Chairman of the compensation committee, Sylvia Rountree and
Richard Bryan, Chairman of the governance committee, and Chairman
and CEO Michael J. Hamilton for fraud, extortion, defamation and
their intentional infliction of severe emotional distress.

George Rountree III and his wife Sylvia Rountree reside in
Wilmington, North Carolina.  George Rountree III is a partner at
the law firm Rountree, Losee and Baldwin.  Sylvia Rountree is a
member of the Board of Trustees at the New Hanover Regional
Medical Center in Wilmington, North Carolina.

George Rountree, who is a practicing lawyer in Wilmington, North
Carolina and is also a member of the board of directors at
Southern Union Company, will receive total compensation of at
least $334,000.00 when MMC ceases to exist.  The Rountrees'
holdings are subject to review by the Securities and Exchange
Commission.

NCI BUILDING: Says CD&R Deal Provides Best Recovery for Lenders
---------------------------------------------------------------
NCI Building Systems, Inc., on September 15, 2009, made available
presentation materials to be used by NCI in certain presentations
by management.

NCI Building is meeting with lenders to discuss the final steps in
its recapitalization process.  The principal objectives for
discussion are:

     -- Review the proposed $143 million pay down and Term Loan
        amendment in connection with the proposed $250 million
        equity investment transaction with a fund managed by
        Clayton, Dubilier & Rice, Inc.; and

     -- Provide an update on NCI's business and recent financial
        Performance.

NCI said it is requesting an amendment to the existing Term Loan
credit agreement to permit CD&R's equity investment, which will
provide lenders with significant benefits and the Company with the
flexibility to manage through the current market conditions and
execute on the long-term business plan.

"The [CD&R] transaction provides lenders with an immediate and
substantial par pay down and the best opportunity to receive a
full recovery on their commitments," the Company said.

The Company is also requesting that lenders vote in favor of an
in-court restructuring plan through which the Company would seek
to effect the CD&R investment if the conditions to complete the
out-of-court restructuring are not met.

                 Proposed Financial Restructuring

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on September 14,
2009, NCI is proposing a financial restructuring to address an
immediate need for liquidity in light of a potentially imminent
default under, and acceleration of, its existing credit facility,
which may occur as early as November 6, 2009 (which may, in turn,
also lead to a default under, and acceleration of, its other
indebtedness, including the $180.0 million in principal amount of
2.125% Convertible Senior Subordinated Notes due 2024, and the
high likelihood that it will be required to repurchase the
convertible notes on November 15, 2009, the first scheduled
mandatory repurchase date under the convertible notes indenture.

NCI is proposing to effect the financial restructuring through one
of these two approaches:

     (1) an out-of-court financial restructuring -- the
         recapitalization plan, consisting of:

         -- an exchange offer to acquire any and all of the
            convertible notes for cash and shares of the Company's
            common stock, par value $0.01 per share;

         -- a $250.0 million investment -- the CD&R investment --
            by Clayton, Dubilier & Rice Fund VIII, L.P., a fund
            managed by Clayton, Dubilier & Rice, Inc., a private
            equity investment firm, involving a private placement
            to the CD&R Fund of a newly created series of NCI
            Building's preferred stock, par value $1.00 per share,
            to be designated as the Series B Cumulative
            Convertible Participating Preferred Stock;

         -- the refinancing of the Company's existing credit
            Facility -- the term loan refinancing -- under which
            the Company and the lenders under the existing credit
            agreement will enter into an amendment to the existing
            credit agreement, providing for, among other things,
            the repayment of approximately $143.3 million of the
            $293.3 million in principal amount of term loans
            outstanding under the existing credit facility and a
            modification of the terms and maturity of the
            $150.0 million balance; and

         -- the ABL financing, pursuant to which the Company will
            enter into an agreement for a $125.0 million asset-
            based loan facility;

or, in the alternative, if conditions to completion of the
recapitalization plan are not satisfied or waived,

     (2) an in-court financial restructuring, through which the
         Company would seek to accomplish the results contemplated
         by the recapitalization plan through the effectiveness of
         a prepackaged plan of reorganization.

The Company expects to reduce its debt by $323 million and
position itself for future growth.

On September 10, 2009, NCI Building commenced the exchange offer
to retire all of its existing 2.125% Convertible Senior
Subordinated Notes due 2024.  Upon the terms and subject to the
conditions of the Exchange Offer, the Company is offering to
exchange $500 in cash and 390 shares of NCI common stock for each
$1,000 principal amount of Convertible Notes validly tendered and
not withdrawn at the expiration of the Exchange Offer.  The
Exchange Offer is subject to certain conditions, including the
tender of at least 95% of the aggregate principal amount of such
Convertible Notes.

On August 31, 2009, NCI Building entered into a lock-up and voting
agreement pursuant to which holders of more than 79% of the
aggregate principal amount of the Company's outstanding
Convertible Notes have agreed to tender their notes in the
Exchange Offer.  The Exchange Offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New
York City time on October 7, 2009, unless extended or earlier
terminated by the Company.

On August 31, 2009, (1) the Company and the CD&R Fund executed
amendment no. 2 to the investment agreement which, among other
things, amended the terms of the exchange offer contemplated by
the original investment agreement to provide that holders of
convertible notes would receive $500 cash and 390 shares of common
stock for each $1,000 principal amount of convertible notes
tendered in the exchange offer, and (2) concurrently with such
execution, the Company and a group of noteholders representing
more than 75% of the outstanding convertible notes executed the
lock-up and voting agreement. Certain of the members of the group
of noteholders also hold term loans and other obligations under
our existing credit agreement and agreed to support the term loan
refinancing as part of the lock-up and voting agreement.
Subsequent to the execution of the lock-up agreement, additional
holders of notes became party to the lock-up  agreement,
increasing the aggregate amount of convertible notes subject
thereto to 79% of the outstanding convertible notes.

an audit opinion with a "going concern" explanatory paragraph.
The going-concern explanatory paragraph from NovaDel's independent
registered public accounting firm -- J.H. Cohn LLP in Roseland,
New Jersey -- expressed substantial doubt, based upon current
financial resources, as to whether NovaDel can continue to meet
its obligations beyond 2009 without access to additional working
capital.


NOVADEL PHARMA: Receives $117,490 From Sale of Shares to Seaside
----------------------------------------------------------------
NovaDel Pharma Inc. on September 11, 2009, had its fifth closing
of an offering pursuant to which Seaside 88 LP purchased 500,000
shares of the Company's Common Stock at a price per share of $0.25
having an aggregate value of roughly $122,670, and, the Company
received net proceeds of roughly $117,490, after deducting
commissions and $1,500 in non-accountable expenses, pursuant to
the terms of a Common Stock Purchase Agreement.

In June 2009, NovaDel Pharma entered into the Agreement with
Seaside 88, whereby the Company agreed to issue and sell to
Seaside, and Seaside agreed to purchase from the Company, 500,000
shares of the Company's common stock, $0.001 par value per share,
once every two weeks for 26 closings over a 52-week period.

Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, at the initial closing,
the offering price of the Common Stock equaled 87% of the volume
weighted average trading price of the Common Stock during the
trading day immediately prior to the initial closing date.  At
each subsequent closing, on each 14th day thereafter, the offering
price of the Company's Common Stock will equal 87% of the volume
weighted average trading price of the Common Stock for the 10-day
trading period immediately preceding each subsequent closing date.
If, with respect to any subsequent closing, the volume weighted
average trading price of the Company's Common Stock for the three
trading days immediately prior to such closing is below $0.25 per
share, then the particular subsequent closing will not occur and
the aggregate number of Shares to be purchased shall be reduced by
500,000 shares of Common Stock.

Flemington, New Jersey-based NovaDel Pharma Inc. (NYSE AMEX: NVD)
-- http://www.novadel.com/-- is a specialty pharmaceutical
company developing oral spray formulations for a broad range of
marketed drugs.  The Company's proprietary technology offers, in
comparison to conventional oral dosage forms, the potential for
faster absorption of drugs into the bloodstream leading to quicker
onset of therapeutic effects and possibly reduced first pass liver
metabolism, which may result in lower doses.  Oral sprays
eliminate the requirement for water or the need to swallow,
potentially improving patient convenience and adherence.

As of June 30, 2009, the Company had $2,358,000 in total assets
and $9,146,000 in total liabilities, resulting in $6,788,000 in
stockholders' deficit.

PENHALL INTERNATIONAL: S&P Junks Corporate Credit Rating From 'B-'
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its ratings on Penhall
International Corp., including the long-term corporate credit
rating, to 'CCC+' from 'B-'.  The outlook is negative.

The ratings downgrade reflects Standard & Poor's concerns that
Penhall's difficult end markets in nonresidential commercial
construction, which are unlikely to improve in the near term,
could contribute to deteriorating operating performance, pressure
cash flow generation, and weaken the company's liquidity in the
next 12 to 18 months.

The ratings on Penhall reflect the company's modest positions in
the small and fragmented niche construction services market and
related equipment rental markets, and its highly leveraged
financial risk profile.

"Standard & Poor's could lower the ratings on the company, if the
availability under the company's revolving credit facility
approaches the $10 million threshold," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Sarah Wyeth.  "We believe this would result in a
covenant breach," she continued.  The challenging environment for
Penhall's end markets prohibits a positive rating action.

PERPETUA HOLDINGS: Files Chapter 11, Retakes Control of Cemetery
----------------------------------------------------------------
Perpetua Holdings has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection,
listing $1 million to $10 million in liabilities owed to up to 200
creditors.

According to Kim Janssen at Chicago Breaking News Center, Burr Oak
has been closed to the public since July 13, 2009, after
allegations of a massive scheme to dig up as many as 300 bodies
and resell burial plots were made.

Chicago Breaking News reports that James Geoly, the attorney for
Catholic Cemeteries boss Roman Szabelski, said that Mr. Szabelski
had not choice but to return the Burr Oak Cemetery to Perpetua,
following the latter's bankruptcy filing.

Chicago Breaking News relates that when Perpetua failed to send
anyone to manage the cemetery after four of its workers were
charged in connection with the scandal, a Cook County judge
appointed Mr. Szabelski to take over the cemetery to clean it up
and reopen it.  Chicago Breaking News states that Mr. Szabelski
was seeking to spend $500,000 from Perpetua's trust funds to bring
the cemetery up to standard before re-opening it.

Arizona-based Perpetua Holdings has owned Burr Oak since 2001.
Perpetua also owns Cedar Park Cemetery in Calumet Park.


PHILADELPHIA NEWSPAPERS: PBGC Balks at $43 Million Asset Sale
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. objected to the bidding
procedures for Philadelphia Newspapers LLC's proposed $43 million
Chapter 11 asset sale, according to Law360.  The PBGC is
complaining that the proposed bidding procedures fail to take into
account whether a bidder may wish to assume all or a portion of
the publisher's defined benefit pension plan, the report says.

As reported by the TCR on Sept. 16, 2009, Bankruptcy Judge Stephen
Raslavich has deferred until September 21 to consider approval of
a proposed sale process for the assets of Philadelphia Newspapers
LLC.   Judge Raslavich postponed the hearing to give the Debtor
and senior lenders time to negotiate procedures for the sale.

The Company has proposed an auction where a group of local
investors, led by Bruce E. Toll, would be stalking horse bidder
and credit bidding would be prohibited.  The Debtors have filed a
proposed Chapter 11 plan built around the sale of the business to
Mr. Toll or to the highest bidder.  The Company has contemplated
an October 22 auction.

Philadelphia Newspapers filed a Chapter 11 plan of reorganization
on August 20.  The Plan provides for the sale of substantially all
of the Debtors' assets to Mr. Toll-led Philly Papers, LLC, absent
higher and better bids at an auction.  Under the deal, Philly
Papers is expected to pay over $41,000,000, after payment of
approximately $6,000,000 in administrative and priority claims.

According to the disclosure statement explaining the Plan, holders
of secured claims, including $66 million, senior secured claims,
will recover 100 cents on the dollar.  Holders of $350 million
prepetition unsecured debt claims will recover less than 1% of
their claims.  Holders of prepetition unsecured trade claims will
recover up to 6%.

A copy of the Insider Plan is available for free at:

    http://bankrupt.com/misc/PhillyNews_Ch11Plan.pdf

Senior lenders, including CIT Group Inc., have proposed their own
reorganization plan that would allow the Company to emerge from
bankruptcy with about $60 million in debt.  Led by Citizens
Bank of Pennsylvania, as agent, senior lenders would own about
95% of the Company with the remainder going to unsecured mezzanine
debt holders.  Other unsecured creditors will recover up to 10% of
their claims in cash.

PHILADELPHIA NEWSPAPERS: Reaches DIP Financing Pact With Creditors
------------------------------------------------------------------
Christopher K. Hepp at the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that
Philadelphia Newspapers LLC's lawyer, Anne Marie Aaronson, told
U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Stephen Raslavich that a final accord on a
$15 million short short-term financing was reached between the
Company and its creditors.

Philadelphia Inquirer relates that the loan will be provided by
Citizens Bank, one of Philadelphia Newspapers' senior lenders.
The report says that Philadelphia Newspapers' proposed
reorganization plan would pay senior lenders $66.6 million in cash
and property to settle about $300 million in secured debt, and
calls for the Company to be put up for auction to determine
whether there are potential buyers who would provide lenders a
better deal.

According to Philadelphia Inquirer, some key issues -- including
the procedures for putting Philadelphia Newspapers for auction and
whether the Company can continue its publicity campaign -- that
were to be argued on September 15 were put on hold until Monday
while the Company and its creditors try to resolve them through
mediation.

             David Haas Eyeing Inquirer & Daily News

Bob Warner at Philadelphia Daily News reports that Rohm & Haas
chemical fortune heir and William Penn Foundation board
chairperson David Haas said that he is one of the investors hoping
to become owners of Philadelphia Newspapers LLC's Inquirer and
Daily News.

Mr. Haas said in a statement that he is the controlling partner of
Penn Matrix Investors, one of three entities that have agreed to
put up $52 million in cash and credit as potential future owners
of the newspapers and their Web site, philly.com.

According to Philadelphia Daily, Penn Matrix's bid is likely to
face competition from at least one other potential ownership group
-- senior lenders who hold more than $300 million in secured debt
of the newspapers.

PILGRIM'S PRIDE: To Sell Business to JBS Under Chapter 11 Plan
--------------------------------------------------------------
Pilgrim's Pride Corporation and six of its debtor-subsidiaries
will be filing with the Bankruptcy Court a joint plan of
reorganization built around a sale of its business to JBS SA, the
world's largest beef producer.

Pilgrim's Pride and JBS have agreed to a transaction representing
an enterprise value of roughly $2.8 billion.  Under the terms of
the Plan, Pilgrim's Pride has entered into an agreement to sell
64% of the new common stock of the reorganized Pilgrim's Pride to
JBS S.A., through its JBS USA Holdings, Inc. subsidiary, for $800
million in cash.

According to reports, JBS SA has also reached a deal to buy
control of Bertin SA in Brazil, to surpass Tyson Foods Inc. as the
top meat processor. Shares surged.  JBS will take over Bertin in a
share swap by creating a holding company that will control both
meatpackers.

According to a statement released by Pilgrim's Pride, proceeds
from the sale of the new common stock of the reorganized Pilgrim's
Pride to JBS will be used to fund cash distributions to allowed
claims under the plan.  Under the terms of the plan, all creditors
of the Debtors holding allowed claims will be paid in full, either
in cash or by issuance of a new note.  All existing Pilgrim's
Pride common stock will be cancelled and existing stockholders
will receive the same number of new common stock shares
representing 36% of the reorganized Pilgrim's Pride in aggregate.

The Plan also calls for an exit facility for senior secured
financing in an aggregate principal amount of $1.75 billion to be
provided by a group of lenders arranged by Joint Lead Arrangers
CoBank, ACB and Rabobank.

Pilgrim's Pride said that it anticipates the plan to be confirmed
by the Bankruptcy Court in time for the Debtors to emerge from
bankruptcy before the end of December.

The plan and the proposed disclosure statement have not yet been
approved by the Bankruptcy Court and are subject to further
negotiations with stakeholders.  As a result, the plan and the
proposed disclosure statement may be materially modified before
approval.

In addition to customary Chapter 11 proceedings, the completion of
the transaction is subject to Hart-Scott-Rodino and other
antitrust reviews and customary closing conditions.

Lazard acted as sole investment banker to Pilgrim's Pride in
connection with its financial restructuring and transaction with
JBS. CRG Partners Group, LLC acted as chief restructuring officer.
Baker & McKenzie LLP and Weil Gotshal & Manges LLP served as legal
advisors.  Rothschild and Rabo Securities USA, Inc. acted as
exclusive financial advisor to JBS U.S.A. and Shearman & Sterling
LLP as its legal advisors.

"Over the past 10 months, we have fundamentally restructured
Pilgrim's Pride as a market-driven company clearly focused on
delivering the best service, selection and value to our customers
as efficiently as possible," said Don Jackson, president and chief
executive officer.  "Thanks to the shared commitment and hard work
of our employees, we believe that Pilgrim's Pride is positioned to
emerge from bankruptcy as a stronger, more efficient competitor.
We have returned to profitability, the quality of our asset base
has improved significantly and we are gaining additional business.
While we recognize that some of the changes made during our
restructuring have been painful for our employees and contract
growers, these decisions were absolutely necessary in helping
Pilgrim's Pride to operate more efficiently while protecting the
greatest number of jobs in the long-term. As a result of the
improvements achieved this year, we believe we have been able to
maximize the value of our company through our plan of
reorganization that achieves what precious few restructurings can:
full repayment of allowed creditor claims and substantial retained
value for existing stockholders."

"Looking ahead, we are truly excited about the strategic growth
opportunities available with JBS as our majority shareholder,"
Dr. Jackson added.  "JBS has a well-earned global reputation for
operational and service excellence in beef and pork production. We
are confident that our plan will earn the support of all
stakeholders and provide the foundation for sustained, profitable
growth in the years ahead."

"We believe our reorganization plan will pave the way for
Pilgrim's Pride to emerge from bankruptcy before the end of the
year and mark a new beginning for this proud company, one that I
fully support and endorse," said Lonnie "Bo" Pilgrim, senior
chairman. "While the past year has been a difficult time for
everyone involved in our restructuring, I take pride in knowing
that we have a plan in place to pay back our creditors in full and
preserve a great deal of value for our existing stockholders."

"Two years ago, JBS acquired Swift & Company, a U.S. beef and pork
company, with a goal of managing its strong assets and turning it
into a well-managed, efficient and profitable company. We believe
the company's performance demonstrates our continued success in
meeting this goal," said Wesley M. Batista, president and chief
executive officer of JBS USA Holdings.  "In 2008, we acquired
Smithfield Beef and Five Rivers Cattle Feeding to strengthen our
beef platform and provide synergies to our existing operations. As
a U.S. beef and pork company, we are proud to now enter into the
U.S. poultry industry with the acquisition of Pilgrim's Pride. We
look forward to working with Pilgrim's management to increase the
company's competitiveness both domestically and internationally.
As we have accomplished with our beef and pork platforms, we will
utilize our existing assets and strong management to grow
Pilgrim's poultry business. We are excited about the opportunity
to work with Pilgrim's employees, contract growers, customers,
vendors and shareholders to enhance value."

Union Supports Sale

The United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW),
which represents more than 250,000 workers in the meatpacking and
poultry industry, announced its strong support for the proposed
sale of a majority stake in Pilgrim's Pride to JBS S.A., as
announced in a press release issued today by Pilgrim's Pride.

The UFCW represents roughly 13,000 workers at Pilgrim's Pride and
nearly 14,000 workers at JBS S.A.

Joe Hansen, International President of the UFCW, said, "The sale
of a majority stake in Pilgrim's Pride to JBS is good news for
workers at Pilgrim's, for their communities and for the future of
the poultry industry.

"Since its 2007 acquisition of Swift & Company, the UFCW has
worked closely with management at every level of JBS.  We have
found them to be accessible and willing to work closely with their
employees in a mutually beneficial way to improve and strengthen
plant operations.

"They have a proven track record of investment in the U.S. packing
industry that benefits workers, communities and all stakeholders.
We look forward to working with them to build on that track record
as they enter the poultry industry.

PLANET HOLLYWOOD: Harrah's Buys Goldman's $140MM Claim
------------------------------------------------------
Alexandra Berzon and Kris Hudson at The Wall Street Journal report
that Harrah's Entertainment Inc. bought from Goldman Sachs
Mortgage Co. $140 million of the debt tied to the Planet Hollywood
Resort & Casino.

Citing people familiar with the matter, The Journal relates that
Planet Hollywood defaulted on its $860 million mortgage by failing
to make its monthly interest payment, and the mortgage's servicer,

QWEST COMMUNICATIONS: Upsizing of Notes Won't Move S&P's B+ Rating
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that the upsizing of Qwest
Communications International Inc.'s senior notes due 2015, to
$550 million from $300 million, does not affect the 'B+' issue-
level and '6' recovery ratings on the issue.  Nor does the
increased issue size affect other ratings on Qwest Communications
International Inc. and related entities, including the 'BB'
corporate credit rating.

Proceeds from the new notes, sold under Rule 144A with
registration rights, will be used for general corporate purposes
including for debt refinancing.  The outlook is negative.

REXNORD LLC: Todd Adams Appointed as President and CEO
------------------------------------------------------
RBS Global, Inc., the parent company of Rexnord LLC, said Todd A.
Adams, 38 years old, has been appointed President and Chief
Executive Officer of RBS Global and Rexnord, and will be nominated
for election as a member of the Board of Directors of RBS Global
and Rexnord.  Mr. Adams will succeed Robert A. Hitt who is leaving
the company to pursue other interests.

Mr. Adams joined Rexnord in 2004 as Vice President, Treasurer &
Director Financial Reporting.  Since that time he has played an
increasingly vital role across the company while assuming greater
levels of responsibility leading to his appointment as Senior Vice
President & Chief Financial Officer in 2008.  He assumed
additional responsibility earlier in 2009 as President of
Rexnord's Water Management platform.  Prior to joining Rexnord,
Mr. Adams held various senior financial roles with The Boeing
Company, APW Limited, and Idex Corporation.  He earned his
Bachelor of Science Degree in Finance in 1993 from Eastern
Illinois University, and is a certified public accountant.

George C. Moore, Executive Vice President, will assume the role of
Acting Chief Financial Officer while an external search for a new
CFO is completed.  Mr. Moore, 54, served as Chief Financial
Officer of the Company from 2006 to 2008.  Prior to joining the
Company, Mr. Moore, served as Executive Vice President and Chief
Financial Officer of Maytag Corporation, a position he had held
since 2003.  Prior to that, Mr. Moore was Group Vice President of
Finance at Danaher Corporation.

George M. Sherman, Rexnord's Chairman stated "I have worked with
Todd for more than five years at Rexnord.  His vision, business
acumen, high level of expectation, passion for the Rexnord
Business System and ability to execute have had a significant
impact on the positive results of our company.  In addition to
Todd's outstanding contributions as CFO, his recent experience
running our Water Management Platform has demonstrated the
leadership capability necessary to enable Rexnord to continue to
outperform competition.  He is surrounded by a very capable and
experienced group of accomplished senior executives, and they have
a talented team supporting them.  I am highly confident in their
ability to continue to evolve the company and maintain a
sustainable competitive advantage in its served markets.  I would
like to wish Bob Hitt success in the future and thank him for his
efforts and contributions in helping us achieve superior
performance over the past seven years, and for his mentorship of
Todd."

Mr. Adams stated, "I am appreciative of the Board's confidence in
me to assume the responsibility to lead Rexnord into the future.
Our company is financially strong, and strategically well-
positioned to deliver industry leading growth and performance.  I
am delighted to be working with George and such a capable team of
associates at Rexnord.  Together we will focus on superior
customer satisfaction through the on-going development of our
high-performance culture, based on the Rexnord Business System and
our core values, to deliver outstanding performance to our
customers and shareholders."

In connection with Mr. Adams' appointment as President and Chief
Executive Officer of RBS Global and Rexnord, the compensation
committee of RBS Global approved an increase of Mr. Adams' annual
base salary to $500,000 and a target bonus of 100% of his base
salary.  In addition, the compensation committee of Rexnord

Inc.'s 2006 Stock Option Plan and its standard vesting

RH DONNELLEY: Court Grants Dec. 24 Extension of Removal Period
--------------------------------------------------------------
Pursuant to Rule 9006(b) of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy
Procedures, the Court may extend the period within which the
Debtors may remove actions pending against them before the
Petition Date "for cause . . . at any time in its discretion . .
. if the [request is] made before the expiration of the period
originally prescribed or as extended by a previous [O]rder."

Section 1452 of the Bankruptcy Code provides that "a party may
remove a claim or cause of action in a civil action . . . to the
district court for the district where such civil action is
pending. . . "

The Debtors obtained from the Bankruptcy Court an extension of the
deadline within which they may file notices of removal of claims
and causes of action pursuant to Section 1452 of the Bankruptcy
Code and Rule 9027 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure by
120 days, through and including December 24, 2009.

The current deadline for the Debtors to file notices of removal
is August 26, 2009.  The Debtors ask the Court that their request
be granted without prejudice to their right to seek further
extensions.

James F. Conlan, Esq., at Sidley Austin LLP, in Chicago,
Illinois, contends that since the Petition Date, the Debtors have
devoted substantially all of their resources to stabilizing their
business operations and addressing critical case management
issues.  He adds that given the size of the Debtors' business
operations and the large number of Debtors involved in the
Chapter 11 Cases, the Debtors' management and advisors have
devoted an extraordinary amount of time and effort towards
ensuring a smooth transition of the Debtors' operations into
Chapter 11 and meeting the initial requirements of the Chapter 11
process, along with the substantial efforts that are required to
manage the Debtors' business operations.

Given the tasks and their attendant demands on the Debtors'
personnel and professional advisors, the Debtors have a
legitimate need for additional time to review their outstanding
litigation matters and evaluate whether those matters should
properly be removed pursuant to Section 1452 and Rule 9027, Mr.
Conlan explains.  He argues that if the Debtors' request is
denied, they could lose a significant element of their overall
ability to manage pending litigation matters during their Chapter
11 cases before they even had the opportunity to evaluate the
merits of the litigation, to the detriment of the Debtors, their
estates, and their creditors.

Furthermore, Mr. Conlan assures the Court that the counterparties
to any claims or causes of action will not suffer any prejudice
because prepetition claims and causes of action against the
Debtors are stayed by operation of the automatic stay under
Section 362(a) of the Bankruptcy Code, and no bar date for the
filing of claims against the Debtors has yet been established.

Accordingly, preserving the Debtors' ability to remove related
claims and causes of action will not impose significant delay or
unnecessary burdens on any counterparties to related claims and
causes of action, Mr. Conlan further argues.

The Court will convene a hearing on September 11, 2009, at
10:00 a.m., to consider the Debtors' request.  Pursuant to Rule
9006-2 of the Delaware Bankruptcy Local Rules, the Debtors'
Removal Period is automatically extended until the conclusion of
that hearing.

RH DONNELLEY: Court Sets Oct. 30, 2009 as Claims Bar Date
---------------------------------------------------------
R.H. Donnelley Corporation and its debtor affiliates' goal is to
complete their restructuring and emerge from Chapter 11 no later
than the end of January 2010.  To that end, the Debtors
contemplate scheduling a hearing on approval of their disclosure
statement towards the end of October 2009, with the solicitation
process beginning shortly thereafter.

The Debtors will require complete and accurate information
regarding the nature, validity, amount, and status of all claims
against the Debtors that will be asserted as soon as practicable.

Rule 3003(c)(3) of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure
governs the filing of Proofs of Claim in a Chapter 11 case and
provides, in relevant part, that the court will fix and for cause
shown may extend the time within which proofs of claim or
interest may be filed.

At the behest of the Debtors, Judge Kevin Gross of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware established
October 30, 2009, at 4:00 p.m., as the deadline for all persons
and entities holding a claim against any of the Debtors to file a
proof of claim.

The General Bar Date would be the date by which all persons and
entities, excluding governmental units, holding prepetition
claims must file Proofs of Claim unless they fall within one of
the exceptions.  Subject to those exceptions, the General Bar
Date would apply to all persons or entities holding claims
against the Debtors that arose or are deemed to have arisen prior
to the Petition Date, including secured claims, unsecured
priority claims, and unsecured non-priority claims.

The Debtors also ask the Court to establish November 24, 2009, at
4:00 p.m. as the deadline for each governmental unit holding a
claim against any of the Debtors to file a proof of claim.

Except where a claim has previously been included in the Debtors'
schedules of assets and liabilities as disputed, contingent, or
unliquidated, the Debtors propose to establish the later of (i)
the General Bar Date or (ii) 20 days after the holder of the
claim is served with notice of the applicable amendment or
supplement to the Schedules as the bar date for filing a Proof of
Claim with respect to that amended claim.

In addition, the Debtors propose to, except as otherwise set in
any order authorizing rejection of an executory contract or
unexpired lease, establish the later of (i) the General Bar Date
or (ii) 30 days after the entry of any order authorizing the
rejection of an executory contract or unexpired lease, as the bar
date by which a Proof of Claim for any damages resulting from the
Debtors' rejection of the executory contract or unexpired lease
must be filed.

The Debtors propose that during submission, each Proof of Claim
must substantially comply with Official Bankruptcy Form 10 and
must be actually received on or before the bar date associated
with the claim by The Garden City Group, Inc., the Court-approved
claims and noticing agent.  GCG will not accept Proofs of Claim
by facsimile, telecopy, e-mail or other electronic submission.

The Debtors propose that these entities are not required to file
Proofs of Claim:

  a. any person or entity that has already properly filed a
     Proof of Claim against the applicable Debtors with either
     GCG or the Clerk of the Court in a form substantially
     similar to Official Bankruptcy Form 10;

  b. any person or entity (i) whose claim is listed in the
     Debtors' Schedules and (ii) whose claim is not described
     therein as "disputed," "contingent," or "unliquidated," and
     (iii) who does not dispute the amount or characterization
     of its claim;

  c. professionals retained by the Debtors or the Official
     Committee of Unsecured Creditors who assert administrative
     claims for fees and expenses subject to the Court's
     approval pursuant to Sections 330, 331 and 503(b) of the
     Bankruptcy Code;

  d. any person or entity that asserts an administrative expense
     claim against the Debtors pursuant to Section 503(b) of the
     Bankruptcy Code, provided that any person or entity that
     has a claim pursuant to Section 503(b)(9) of the Bankruptcy
     Code on account of prepetition goods received by the
     Debtors within 20 days of the Petition Date must file a
     Proof of Claim on or before the General Bar Date;

  e. current officers and directors of the Debtors who assert
     claims for indemnification or contribution arising as a
     result of prepetition or postpetition services to the
     Debtors;

  f. any Debtor asserting a claim against another Debtor;

  g. any entity whose claim is limited exclusively to a claim
     for repayment by the applicable Debtors of principal,
     interest, and other applicable fees and charges on or under
     (i) certain 8.875% Senior Notes due 2016 issued by R.H.
     Donnelley Corporation; (ii) certain 8.875% Senior Notes due
     2017 issued by RHD; (iii) certain 9.875% Senior
     Subordinated Notes due 2013 issued by Dex Media West LLC;
     (iv) certain 6.875% Senior Discount Notes due 2013 issued
     by RHD; (v) certain 9% Senior Discount Notes due 2013
     issued by Dex Media, Inc.; (vi) certain 8% Senior Notes due
     2013 issued by DMI; (vii) certain 11.75% Senior Notes due
     2015 issued by R.H. Donnelley Inc.; (viii) certain 8.5%
     Senior Notes due 2010 issued by DMW; (ix) certain 6.875%
     Senior Notes due 2013 issued by RHD; and (x) certain 5.875%
     Senior Notes due 2011 issued by DMW provided, however, that
     (i) the indenture trustee under each series of Notes will
     be required to file Proofs of Claim on account of Note
     Claims on or under the Notes or Notes Indentures on or
     before the Bar Date; and (ii) any holder of a Note Claim
     that wishes to assert a claim against a Debtor other than a
     Note Claim will be required to file a Proof of Claim on or
     before the Bar Date;

  h. any person or entity whose claim against the Debtors has
     been allowed by an order of the Court entered on or before
     the General Bar Date; and

  i. any person or entity whose claim against the Debtors has
     been paid in full by any of the Debtors pursuant to an
     order of the Court entered on or before the General Bar
     Date.

The Debtors wish to clarify that any entity holding an interest
in any Debtor, which is based solely upon the ownership of common
or preferred stock in a corporation, a membership interest in a
limited liability company, or warrants or rights to purchase,
sell or subscribe to the security or interest will not be
required to file a proof of interest on or before the General Bar
Date; provided, however, that Interest Holders who wish to assert
claims against any of the Debtors that arise out of or relate to
the ownership or purchase of an Interest, including claims
arising out of or relating to the sale, issuance, or distribution
of an Interest, must file Proofs of Claim on or before the
General Bar Date.

The Debtors intend to provide notice of the Bar Dates by mailing
a copy of the Bar Date Notice, together with a Proof of Claim
form, by first-class U.S. mail, postage prepaid, to notice
parties.

James F. Conlan, Esq., at Sidley Austin LLP, in Chicago,
Illinois, says mailing of the Bar Date Notice no later than the
Service Date will ensure that creditors receive no less than 40
days' notice of the Bar Dates, which notice substantially exceeds
the minimum 20-day notice period provided by Rule 2002(a)(7) of
the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure.

Furthermore, the Debtors intend to provide notice of the Bar
Dates to unknown creditors by causing a copy of the notice to be
published at least once no later than 20 days prior to the
General Bar Date in the national editions of the Wall Street
Journal and USA Today.

Mr. Conlan submits that the publications are likely to reach the
widest possible audience of creditors who may not otherwise have
notice of the Debtors' Chapter 11 cases.

RH DONNELLEY: Gets Court Nod for Mercer as Consultant
-----------------------------------------------------
R.H. Donnelley Corp. and its affiliates obtained the Court's
authority to employ Mercer (US) Inc. as compensation consultant,
nunc pro tunc to June 1, 2009.

In light of the complexity of their Chapter 11 cases and the
nature of the Debtors' industry, the Debtors submit that they
require expert consultation regarding certain compensation
programs.

As a leading compensation and benefits consulting firm, Mercer is
particularly well suited to serve as their compensation
consultant in these chapter 11 cases, the Debtors assert.  Mercer
routinely advises large corporate clients on compensation and
benefits and has considerable experience providing the services
to businesses in a Chapter 11 environment.

Mercer will be engaged by the Debtors to render consulting
services intended to provide the Debtors with market competitive,
motivational compensation programs in connection with the
Debtors' management equity incentive plan.  In particular, Mercer
will analyze proposed management compensation arrangements and
assist and advise the Debtors, under the leadership of the
Debtors' compensation committee, in developing a management
compensation program that aligns the interests of the Debtors,
their key employees, and their creditors.

The Debtors will pay Mercer based on these hourly rates:

    Analyst                            $225
    Associate                  $250 to $300
    Senior Associate           $350 to $450
    Principal                  $500 to $700
    Principal (Specialist)     $700 to $800

John Dempsey, a principal of Mercer, assures the Court that his
firm is a "disinterested person" as the term is defined in
Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code.

RH DONNELLEY: Gets Court Nod to Fund $30 Mil. to Pension Plans
--------------------------------------------------------------
As of the Petition Date, R.H. Donnelley Corp. and its affiliates
employed approximately 3,650 employees and before the Petition
Date, and in the ordinary course of business, the Debtors
maintained certain tax-qualified pension plans for the benefit of
the Employees, including the R.H. Donnelley Corporation Retirement
Account and the Dex Media, Inc. Pension Plan.

James F. Conlan, Esq., at Sidley Austin LLP, in Chicago,
Illinois, relates that prior to the Petition Date, and in the
ordinary course of business, the Debtors have been diligent in
ensuring that the Pension Plans are compliant with applicable law
and in maintaining appropriate funding levels.  To that end, the
Debtors are required to make certain periodic contributions to
the Pension Plans that are based, in part, on the funded status
of the Pension Plans as of the first day of the applicable plan
year.

In addition to the required contributions, from time to time, the
Debtors also make certain contributions to the Pension Plans in
to ensure that the Pension Plans maintain a funded level-the
value of plan assets over plan liabilities-of at least 80%, Mr.
Conlan tells the Court.

"While these Funding Compliance Contributions are not necessarily
required by applicable law, the failure of the Debtors to make
such payments could have adverse consequences to the Debtors and
the Employees, including the imposition of restrictions on the
right of Pension Plan participants to elect lump sum
distributions and subjecting the Debtors to an increase in future
funding requirements," Mr. Conlan contends.

The Debtors are particularly concerned about imposing a
restriction because lump sum distributions are contractually
required under the Debtors' collective bargaining agreement with
the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Mr. Conlan
tells the Court.  He adds that if the funded level of the Pension
Plans becomes less than 75%, the Pension Plans will be considered
"at risk" plans under the PPA and the Debtors will be required to
apply more conservative actuarial assumptions in calculating the
amount of minimum funding contributions in 2010 and thereafter,
thereby increasing the amount of future contributions to the
Pension Plans.

The Debtors obtained the Court's authority, but not direction, to
make a Funding Compliance Contribution of up to $30 million prior
to September 30, 2009, to ensure that the Pension Plans continue
to maintain a funding level of at least 80%.

ROCKCLIFF RESOURCES: Settles Debt with 2 Creditors
--------------------------------------------------
Rockcliff Resources Inc. said September 16 that it has settled
C$25,000 -- not C$30,000 as previously disclosed -- in debt owed
to two arm's length creditors in consideration for the issuance of
333,334 common shares priced at $0.075 per share.  The securities
issued will be restricted from trading until January 17, 2010.

SELDOM BLUES: Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection
--------------------------------------------------------
Seldom Blues L.L.C. has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection
in the Bankruptcy Court in Detroit to restructure some debt during
a market downturn, Chad Halcom at Crain's Detroit Business
reports, citing Michael Layne, partner at public relations firm
Marx Layne & Co., and Seldom Blues' spokesperson.

Jaclyn Trop at The Detroit News reports that Seldom Blues went
bankrupt despite receiving hundreds of thousands of dollars in
taxpayer-funded loans since 2004.

Crain's relates quoted Mr. Layne as saying, "This was foreseeable.
When Seldom Blues first signed a lease five and a half years ago,
GM had just completed a reorganization and RenCen was like a city
unto itself.  That city was really able to support a robust
weekday lunch and dinner business.  With the downsizing of GM,
which obviously continues to this day, that has severely impacted
business."

Seldom Blues listed $500,001 to $1 million in debts to more than
50 creditors.  According to Crain's, more than $400,000 of those
debts are owed to food vendors and media companies.

Wallace Handler, Esq., at Sullivan, Ward, Asher & Patton P.C. is
the lead counsel for Seldom Blues.

Court documents say that Michael Layne, partner at public
relations firm Marx Layne & Co., and Seldom Blues' spokesperson,
is one of the Company's 20 largest unsecured creditors.  Seldom
Blues owes Mr. Layne some $35,767.21.

According to Crain's Seldom Blues also owes:

     -- seafood wholesaler Northern Lakes Seafood & Meats some
        $274,098.60;

     -- Sysco Food Services of Detroit L.L.C. about $30,946.54;

     -- Pepsi-Cola about $2,247.61;

     -- Sohn Linen Services some $10,782.54;

     -- Riverfront Holdings about $28,355;

     -- Royal Oak-based Hour Media L.L.C. some $9,248.07; and

     -- Royal Oak-based D Business about $1,363.82.

Detroit-based Seldom Blues L.L.C. was founded by Frank Taylor, who
used Downtown Development Authority loans to create the jazz
restaurant and popular downtown meeting locale in Detroit's
Renaissance Center.  The Company is owned by Southern Hospitality
Group.

SIX FLAGS: Noteholders Offer More Recovery for Unsec. Creditors
---------------------------------------------------------------
An informal committee of holders of 12.25% Senior Notes Due 2016
issued by Debtor Six Flags Operations, Inc., asks Judge
Christopher Sontchi of the U.S. District Court for the District
of Delaware to terminate the Debtors' exclusive periods to file a
plan of reorganization and solicit acceptances of the plan.

The Informal Committee also asks the Court to adjourn the hearing
to consider the adequacy of the Disclosure Statement explaining
the Debtors' First Amended Plan of Reorganization, filed
August 20, 2009.

Furthermore, the Informal Committee seeks the Court's permission
to file an alternative plan and disclosure statement on a date
that both the Debtors' Plan and Alternative Plan can be sent to
creditors simultaneously.

According to the Informal Committee's counsel, Ira S. Dizengoff,
Esq., at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP, in New York, on
September 2, 2009, the Informal Committee presented the Debtors
and their advisors with an alternative plan proposal and a fully
executed commitment letter for a $450 million backstopped equity
rights offering, together with two detailed term sheets for the
Rights Offering and the Alternative Proposal.  The Commitment
Letter stated that its terms would be withdrawn unless the
Debtors counter-signed the Commitment Letter on or before
September 8, 2009.

Under the Alternative Proposal, each class of creditors and
equity holders receives the same treatment provided under the
Debtors' Plan, except for three classes of creditors, which
receive better treatment than what is provided under the
Management Plan:

                  Treatment Under            Treatment Under

                                          Additionally, each

                                          the Rights Offering
                                          to purchase $450

                                          aggregate of New

                                          senting 61.7% to 69.4%
                                          of New Common Stock,
                                          subject to dilution

                                          Additionally, each
                                          holder of an allowed
                                          SFI Note Claim
                                          receives on a pro rata
                                          basis, (i) warrants to
                                          purchase 2.5% of New
                                          Common Stock with a
                                          strike price equiva-
                                          lent to 1 $1.8 billion
                                          total enterprise
                                          value.

                                          Additionally, each
                                          holder of an allowed
                                          SFI Note Claim is
                                          entitled to partici-
                                          pate in the Rights
                                          Offering to purchase
                                          up to $50 million of
                                          the Offering Amount,
                                          representing 6.1% of
                                          New Common Stock,
                                          subject to dilution by
                                          a long-term incentive
                                          plan.

Mr. Dizengoff asserts that exclusivity should be terminated
because:

  (i) the Debtors have turned a blind eye on a superior, fully
      committed alternative proposal;

(ii) creditors should have the right to choose which plan is
      superior; and

(iii) the Debtors' management team and board of directors are
      racing ahead with a plan that enriches themselves at the
      expense of virtually every other creditor constituency.

Mr. Dizengoff reiterates that the Alternative Plan proposed by
the Informal Committee, which includes a fully backstopped equity
rights offering for $450 million, provides each of the Debtors'
stakeholders with the same treatment provided under the Debtors'
Plan, except for three classes of creditors, which receive better
treatment than what is provided under the Debtors' Plan:

* Six Flags, Inc. Noteholders -- While the Debtors' Plan
   provides SFI Noteholders with merely 1.0% of the New Common
   Stock, the Alternative Plan provides SFI Noteholders with (i)
   3.6% of the New Common Stock, (ii) warrants to purchase up to
   an additional 5.0% of the New Common Stock, and (iii) rights
   to participate in the equity offering to purchase up to an
   additional 6.1% of the New Common Stock.

* SFO Noteholders -- While the Management Plan provides SFO
   Noteholders with only 7% of the New Common Stock, the
   Alternative Plan provides SFO Noteholders with (i)
   approximately 28% of the New Common Stock, and (ii) rights to
   participate in the equity offering to purchase up to an
   additional 61.7% to 69.4% of the New Common Stock.

* Lenders -- While the Debtors' Plan provides Lenders with
   92% of the New Common Stock, the Alternative Plan pays off
   the Lenders in full in cash and gives them the opportunity to
   participate in the New Term Loan.

Despite the fact that the Alternative Plan is a viable
alternative and provides the Debtors' creditors with more than
375% more value in enhanced recoveries, the Management Team has
failed to give the Alternative Plan any meaningful consideration,
Mr. Dizengoff tells the Court.

While those reasons demonstrate cause to terminate Exclusivity,
the case is made even more compelling by the fact that the
Debtors' Plan is an ill-conceived, poorly designed and non-
confirmable restructuring that benefits only two constituencies -
- the Management Team and the Lenders -- while eviscerating the
recoveries of the vast bulk of their creditors, including, in
particular, SFO Noteholders and SFI Noteholders who together are
owed over $1.3 billion, Mr. Dizengoff stresses.

Mr. Dizengoff further criticizes the Debtors' managing team's
prepetition renegotiation of the terms of their employment
contracts, which give the executive more than $30 million in cash
bonuses, stock options, and other compensation upon the
consummation of a Chapter 11 plan, which amounts are payable
irrespective of creditor recoveries.

Terminating Exclusivity to allow consideration of the Alternative
Plan would move the Debtors' Chapter 11 Cases forward materially
to a degree that otherwise will not occur, Mr. Dizengoff asserts.
Absent the termination of the Exclusive Periods, the Debtors will
continue to prosecute the Debtors' Plan, which will do nothing
but force the Debtors' estates to incur enormous expense and
delay their emergence from Chapter 11, he maintains.

Conversely, if the Exclusive Periods are terminated, then the
Informal Committee will be able to propose the Alternative Plan,
which delivers significantly more value to creditors than the
Management Plan and provides the Debtors and their creditors with
a confirmable means of quickly and successfully reorganizing
their businesses and expeditiously emerging from bankruptcy,
Mr. Dizengoff avers.

Contemporaneously, the Informal Committee asks the Court's
authority to file its Alternative Plan, Alternative Disclosure
Statement, and other related documents under seal to prevent a
mistaken impression of a perceived violation of Section 1121(c)
of the Bankruptcy Code, while allowing the Court and certain
other parties in interest to consider the Exhibits in connection
with the relief requested in the Exclusivity Motion.

Further, by another motion, the Informal Committee asks the Court
to convene a hearing to consider its Motion to Terminate on
October 8, 2009.

Pursuant to Rule 2019 of the Federal rules of Bankruptcy
Procedure, Akin Gump discloses that members of the Informal
Committee are:

   -- Avenue Capital Management;

   -- Bay Harbor Management;

   -- Fidelity Management & Research Co., as Investment Manager
      With Full Discretionary Authority Over the Accounts of 19
      Individual Entities;

   -- H Partners Management LLC;

STAR TRIBUNE: Creditors Committee Wants Publisher Identified
------------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors of Star Tribune Co.
said the Bankruptcy Court should deny approval of the Company's
proposed Chapter 11 plan unless it discloses the identity of its
publisher.  "While the Debtors have made great strides in the
reorganization of their businesses, the Debtors have not disclosed
the identity of the publisher that will helm the Debtors'
newspaper business upon emergence from bankruptcy.  It would
appear difficult for the Court to make a finding of feasibility
regarding the Plan without disclosure of the Debtors' publisher-
to-be," the Committee said.

"A newspaper's publisher is even more critical than any one member
of an otherwise complete and functioning management team in
another industry," creditors said, acknowledging that Frontier
Airlines' bankruptcy was confirmed without having a chief
executive officer in place.

The Debtors will present their proposed Chapter 11 plan at
confirmation hearings scheduled to begin September 17.

Star Tribune and its affiliates have filed a plan, which provides
for the Debtors' continued operation as a going concern.  The
Creditors Committee Creditors had asked unsecured creditors to
vote in favor of the Plan.

According to the disclosure statement, the Plan offers a 29.8% to
36.1% recovery to first-lien lenders in the form of new common
stock and secured notes.  Unsecured creditors will recover between
0.5% and 1.3% of their claims with cash or stock and warrants.
Holders of convenience claims will be paid 0.9% of the allowed
amount of their claims.  Holders of administrative and priority
tax claims and holders of other priority claims and other secured
claims will be paid in full.  The first lien lenders and unsecured
creditors will be entitled to vote on the Plan.  Holders of equity
interests will not receive any distributions under the Plan and
will be deemed to reject the Plan.

STRATEGIC RESOURCE: Delays Financials Due to Chapter 11 Filing
--------------------------------------------------------------
Strategic Resource Acquisition Corporation said there will be a
short delay in filing its Annual Audited Financial Statements,
Management Discussion & Analysis and Annual Information Form for
the Company's financial year ended September 30, 2008, as required
by National Instrument 51-102 Continuous Disclosure Obligations.

The delay is a result of the following:

  -- the Company filed for creditor protection under Chapter 11 of
     of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code on January 15, 2009;

  -- unprecedented market volatility which has required the
     Company to review the carrying value of its producing assets
     and mineral properties, select and implement appropriate
     valuation methodologies during a period of uncertainty of the
     restructuring process under creditor protection;

  -- significant management time and effort dedicated to
     discussions with the Company's existing secured and unsecured
     creditors, in relation to restructuring of the payments due
     under the loan facility which was finalized on July 17, 2009,
     and

  -- the finalization of the sale of the Company's primary asset,
     the Middle Tennessee Mines property on May 1, 2009.

The Company will apply to the applicable securities commissions or
regulators for a management cease trade order related to the
Company's common shares to be imposed against some or all of the
persons who are directors, officers or insiders of the Company
instead of a cease trade order being imposed against all
securities of the Company. The MCTO would not generally affect the
ability of persons who have not been directors, officers or
insiders of the Company to trade the securities of the Company.

If the annual audited consolidated financial statements, related
MD&A and the AIF are not filed by September 30, 2009, the
applicable securities commissions or regulators may impose a cease
trade order.  A cease trade order may be imposed sooner if the
Company fails to satisfy the provisions of the Alternative
Information Guidelines required pursuant to National Policy 12-203
Cease Trade Orders for Continuous Disclosure Defaults.

The Company is working with its auditors to complete the audit of
the Company's financial statements for the year ended September
30, 2008 as soon as possible and anticipates filing such financial
statements and related MD&A and AIF by September 30, 2009.  Until
its annual consolidated financial statements and related MD&A and
AIF are filed, the Company intends to satisfy the Alternative
Information Guidelines, including the issuance of bi-weekly
default status reports, each of which will be issued in the form
of a press release.

SUN-TIMES MEDIA: Union Workers Reject Concessions in Test Vote
--------------------------------------------------------------
Phil Rosenthal Media at Chicago Tribune reports that Chicago Sun-
Times workers represented by the Chicago Newspaper Guild has
rejected major concessions that the management has said are a
prerequisite from 18 collective bargaining units for Sun-Times
Media Group's proposed sale.

As reported by the TCR on September 14, 2009, Sun-Times Media
sought wage-and-benefit reductions from 18 unions.  The
concessions include cuts in severance pay and limiting it to four
weeks and elimination of seniority as a deciding factor in
layoffs.  Chicago Newspaper Guild executive director Tom
Thibeaultsaid that union employees had been aware of Sun-Times
Media's plea to continue 15% compensation cuts negotiated after
the Company's bankruptcy.  Sun-Times Media wants to extend those
cuts for three years, regardless of when union contracts expire.

Michael Oneal and Julie Johnsso at Chicago Tribune relate that the
unionized workers gathered on Tuesday to vote on the concessions.
The report says that the vote is a crucial test of the bid's
viability.

According to Chicago Tribune, a Sun-Times Medias spokesperson said
that the Company's "18 bargaining units have until September 29 to
approve the amendments requested by the buyer."  The report quoted
Sun-Times Media Chairman Jeremy Halbreich as saying, "If you
approve the amendments, you will satisfy the most important
condition for the buyer to purchase our newspapers, Web sites and
other assets, thereby securing a bright future . . . . If you
reject amendments, the buyer will withdraw . . . and all 1,800
jobs across the company will disappear."

Sun-Times Media Group, Inc. -- http://www.thesuntimesgroup.com/--

SMITHFIELD FOODS: Share Issuance Won't Affect Moody's 'B2' Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service commented that the planned issuance of
$250 million in common shares by Smithfield Foods, Inc., has not
at this time had an impact on the company's B2 corporate family
and probability of default ratings, its speculative grade
liquidity rating of SGL-3 or its stable outlook.

The planned share issuance, which could be upsized, is a credit
positive in that it will bolster liquidity and reduce leverage.
However, given the size of Smithfield's reported debt -- over
approximately $3.2 billion, pro-forma for the $225 million add-on
bond issued in August and the $320.7 million repayment of
outstandings upon cancellation of the Euro RC -- the proposed
equity issue will not lower leverage materially.  Similarly, the
potential boost in cash balances following the share issuance is
not sufficient to significantly strengthen the company's liquidity
profile while it is still incurring losses in its hog production
segment.  For the quarter ended August 2, 2009, reported operating
profit was a loss of $40.7 million, after adding back impairment
charges of $34.1 million in the quarter; the $101 million reported
segment profit from pork products did not fully offset the
$128 million loss in hog production, pro-forma for impairment
charges.

Moody's notes that Smithfield is not subject to maintenance
financial covenants following the establishment of $1 billion
'ABL' in July and the cancellation of the Euro 300 million RC.

Moody's most recent rating action for Smithfield on August 7,
2009, affirmed the company's long-term ratings, including its B2
corporate family rating; upgraded its speculative grade liquidity
rating to SGL-3 from SGL-4, and maintained a stable outlook.

Smithfield Foods, Inc., headquartered in Smithfield, Virginia, is
the world's largest pork producer and processor.  Sales for the
twelve months ended August 2, 2009, excluding the revenues of the
divested beef business, were approximately $12 billion.

SUNWEST MANAGEMENT: Emeritus to Participate in Blackstone Offer
---------------------------------------------------------------
Emeritus Corporation has been selected by Blackstone Real Estate
Advisors as manager in conjunction with BREA's preliminary
agreement to acquire roughly 148 communities currently operated by
Sunwest Management.

BREA has executed a preliminary agreement with Sunwest, a Salem,
Oregon-based operator of senior living communities, to acquire
communities emerging from bankruptcy for a cash investment and
assumption of secured debt by an entity comprised of affiliates of
BREA and Columbia Pacific Management, Inc., an entity controlled
by Dan Baty, Chairman and Co-CEO of Emeritus.

Under the terms of the proposal, Emeritus would be appointed as
manager of the portfolio.  Emeritus will also have the option to
invest up to 10% of the equity in the joint venture entity along
with BREA and Columbia Pacific.

The preliminary agreement is subject to a number of contingencies,
including a due diligence process and bankruptcy court approvals.
The Company will provide additional information when definitive
agreements are finalized.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on August 28, 2009,
the court-appointed receiver and chief restructuring officer
overseeing the reorganization of Sunwest Management on August 25
filed a distribution plan with the U.S. District Court in Eugene,
Oregon.  A product of intensive financial, legal and business
analysis and summer-long mediations involving numerous
stakeholders -- including investors, creditors, Sunwest insiders
and secured lenders -- the proposed plan consists of two key
elements: (1) a process for enhancing the value of Sunwest assets,
and (2) a methodology for equitably distributing that value to
stakeholders owed as much as $2 billion.

Emeritus Corporation -- http://www.emeritus.com/-- is a national
provider of assisted living and Alzheimer's and related dementia
care services to seniors. Emeritus is one of the largest and most
experienced operators of freestanding assisted living communities
located throughout the United States. These communities provide a
residential housing alternative for senior citizens who need
assistance with the activities of daily living, with an emphasis
on personal care services, which provides support to the residents
in the aging process.  Emeritus currently operates 309 communities
in 36 states representing capacity for roughly 27,200 units and
roughly 32,400 residents.  The Company's common stock is traded on
the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol ESC.

                    About Sunwest Management

Founded in Oregon in 1991, Sunwest Management --
http://www.sunwestmanagement.com/-- is one of the largest private
senior living providers in the country and is a significant Oregon

Grassmueck as receiver after the Securities and Exchange
Commission filed suit against Sunwest and former CEO Jon Harder,
alleging securities fraud.

TELKONET INC: Registers 11 Million Shares Under Incentive Plan
--------------------------------------------------------------
Telkonet, Inc., filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission
a Registration Statement to cover 11,000,000 additional shares of
the Company's common stock, $0.001 par value per share, being
registered for issuance pursuant to the Telkonet, Inc. Amended and
Restated Stock Incentive Plan by virtue of:

     -- an amendment to the Plan on June 23, 2003, increasing the
        number of shares issuable under the Plan from 7,000,000 to
        a total of 15,000,000; and

     -- an amendment to the Plan on October 24, 2006, increasing
        the number of shares issuable under the Plan from
        15,000,000 to a total of 18,000,000.

As of June 30, 2009, the Company had $18.5 million in total assets
and $5,632,036 in total current liabilities and $2,257,539 in
total long-term liabilities.

The Company has an accumulated deficit of $108.4 million and a
working capital deficit of $3.19 million as of June 30, 2009.

The Company believes that anticipated revenues from operations
will be insufficient to satisfy its ongoing capital requirements
for at least the next 12 months.  If the Company's financial
resources from operations are insufficient, the Company will
require additional financing to execute its operating plan and
continue as a going concern.  The Company cannot predict whether
this additional financing will be in the form of equity or debt,
or be in another form.  The Company may not be able to obtain the
necessary additional capital on a timely basis, on acceptable
terms, or at all.  In any of these events, the Company may be
unable to implement its current plans for expansion, repay its
debt obligations as they become due, or respond to competitive
pressures, any of which circumstances would have a material
adverse effect on its business, prospects, financial condition and
results of operations.

Management intends to raise capital through asset-based financing
or the sale of its stock in private placements.  Management
believes that with this financing, the Company will be able to
generate additional revenues that will allow the Company to
continue as a going concern.  There can be no assurance that the
Company will be successful in obtaining additional funding.

TOLL BROTHERS: Moody's Assigns 'Ba1' Rating on $250 Mil. Notes
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Ba1 rating to the new
$250 million of senior unsecured notes of Toll Brothers Finance
Corp., which are guaranteed by Toll Brothers, Inc.  At the same
time, Moody's affirmed all of the existing ratings of Toll
Brothers, Inc., including the corporate family rating at Ba1,
senior unsecured rating at Ba1, senior sub debt rating at Ba2, and
speculative grade liquidity rating at SGL-1.  The ratings outlook
remains negative.

Proceeds from the issuance of $250 million senior unsecured notes
will be used to fund a tender offer for up to $150 million of the
company's senior notes due in 2012 and 2013 and for general
corporate purposes, including the retirement of additional debt.

The ratings are supported by Toll Brothers' leadership position in
its upper end homebuilding niche; its currently strong liquidity
profile, as captured in its SGL-1 rating; and an ability to
greatly restrict, or even shut off entirely, its land spend for
relatively long periods of time without incurring the need to race
to catch up when the market turns.  This latter characteristic
permits the company generally to control how much cash flow it
wishes to generate or even whether it wishes the figure to be
positive or not.  At the same time, the ratings incorporate
Moody's expectation that pre-impairment earnings will range from
moderately negative to slightly positive, that continued
impairment charges will lessen the substantial headroom that the
company currently enjoys in its bank covenants, that the overall
general economy and macro housing outlook will remain unsupportive
into 2010, and that there could be additional capital drain from
troubled joint ventures.

The negative ratings outlook reflects Moody's expectation that
Toll Brothers' high density mid- and high-rise tower business will
continue to be a drag on earnings and result in reduced cash flow,
as cancellations are expected to mount while new orders remain
weak.  In addition, although the company has by far the longest
land supply in the industry, it has begun bidding selectively, and
so far unsuccessfully, on small parcels of additional land.  If it
should escalate its bidding activity and successfully acquire
larger parcels, some of the company's currently strong liquidity
position may be impaired.

Going forward, the outlook could stabilize if Moody's were to
project that the company will generate strongly positive cash flow
in fiscal 2009 and 2010, remain profitable on a pre-impairment
basis, and continue building its cash balances.

The ratings could be lowered if Moody's were to expect cash flow
generation to be more than modestly negative in 2010; liquidity
were to be materially impaired; the company were to re-lever its
balance sheet above 50%; and/or modest pre-impairment losses were
to occur on a sustained quarterly basis or a significant pre-
impairment loss were to occur in any one quarter.

Moody's last rating action for Toll Brothers, Inc., occurred on
April 15, 2009, at which time Moody's assigned a Ba1 rating to the
company's $400 million of 8.91% senior unsecured notes due
October 15, 2017.

Based in Horsham, Pennsylvania, Toll Brothers, Inc., is the
nation's leading builder of luxury homes, serving move-up, empty-
nester, and "active adult" buyers in 21 states and four regions
around the country.  Total revenues and consolidated net income
for the trailing 12 month period that ended July 31, 2009, were
$1.97 billion and $(723) million, respectively.

UBS AG: Taps Bora Sila as Americas Retail Banking Chief
-------------------------------------------------------
Bora Sila will join UBS Investment Bank's Investment Banking
Department as managing director and chief of Americas Retail
Coverage within the firm's Global Consumer Products and Retail
Group.  Mr. Sila will report to Guy Phillips, Global Head of
Consumer Products and Retail Group, and will be based in New York
City.

Mr. Sila will be responsible for banking coverage for all retail
clients in the Americas.  He joins UBS after 19 years at Citigroup
where he held a number of senior positions in investment banking
focusing on retail clients, most recently as co-head of the retail
investment banking practice.  Mr. Sila began his career at Goldman
Sachs in equity research.

"Even in today's volatile markets, we are seeing an increasing
level of deal activity among retail companies, whether in M&A,
capital raisings or restructurings," said Mr. Phillips.  "Bora's
depth of relationships, ability to manage complex transactions and
significant industry knowledge gained from nearly two decades
covering retail companies will be of great benefit to our clients
as they look to UBS for superior advice and execution."

Mr. Sila holds a BA from the University of Pennsylvania and an MBA
from Columbia Business School.

Based in Zurich, Switzerland, UBS AG (VTX:UBSN) --
http://www.ubs.com/-- is a global provider of financial services
for wealthy clients.  UBS's financial businesses are organized on
a worldwide basis into three Business Groups and the Corporate
Center.  Global Wealth Management & Business Banking consists of
three segments: Wealth Management International & Switzerland,
Wealth Management US and Business Banking Switzerland.  The
Business Groups Investment Bank and Global Asset Management
constitute one segment each.  The Industrial Holdings segment
holds all industrial operations controlled by the Group.  Global
Asset Management provides investment products and services to
institutional investors and wholesale intermediaries around the
globe.  The Investment Bank operates globally as a client-driven
investment banking and securities firm.  The Industrial Holdings
segment comprises the non-financial businesses of UBS, including
the private equity business, which primarily invests UBS and
third-party funds in unlisted companies.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe, UBS has
amassed more than US$53 billion in writedowns and losses since the
credit crisis began.  The bank expects to post a loss in the
second quarter of 2009.  The bank's net loss for full-year 2008
widened to CHF19.697 billion from of CHF5.247 million in the prior
year.  Net losses from continuing operations totaled
CHF19.327 billion, compared with losses of CHF5.111 billion in the
prior year.  UBS attributed the losses to negative revenues in its
fixed income, currencies and commodities (FICC) area.  For the
2008 fourth quarter, UBS incurred a net loss of CHF8.100 billion,
down from a net profit of CHF296 million.  Net loss from
continuing operations was CHF7.997 billion compared with a profit
of CHF433 million.  The Investment Bank recorded a pre-tax loss of
CHF7.483 billion, compared with a pre-tax loss of CHF2.748 billion
in the prior quarter.  This result was primarily due to trading
losses, losses on exposures to monolines and impairment charges
taken against leveraged finance commitments.  An own credit charge
of CHF1.616 billion was recorded by the Investment Bank in fourth
quarter 2008, mainly due to redemptions and repurchases of UBS
debt during this period.

UBS said it will further reduce its headcount to 15,000 by the end
of the year.  UBS's personnel numbers reduced to 77,783 on
December 31, 2008, down by 1,782 from September 30, 2008, with
most staff reductions at its investment banking unit.


UNIFI INC: In the Red for 3 Straight Years; $48.9MM FY09 Net Loss
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Unifi, Inc., posted a net loss of $48,996,000 for the fiscal year
ended June 28, 2009, compared to a net loss of $16,151,000 for
fiscal year 2008 and a net loss of $115,792,000 for fiscal year
2007.

The Company recorded lower net sales of $553,663,000 for FY2009
from $713,346,000 for FY2008 and $690,308,000 for FY2007.

At June 28, 2009, the Company had $476,932,000 in total assets;
total current liabilities of $48,840,000, long-term debt and other
liabilities of $182,707,000, deferred income taxes of $416,000;
and shareholders' equity of $244,969,000.

The Company warned in a Form 10-K filing it has substantial
indebtedness which could adversely affect its financial condition.

As of June 28, 2009, the Company had a total of $187.1 million of
debt outstanding, including $179.2 million outstanding in
aggregate principal amount of 2014 notes, $6.9 million outstanding
in loans relating to a Brazilian government tax program, and
$1.0 million outstanding on a sale leaseback obligation.

The Company's outstanding indebtedness could have important
consequences to investors, including:

     -- its high level of indebtedness could make it more
        difficult for the Company to satisfy its obligations with
        respect to its outstanding notes, including its repurchase
        obligations;

     -- the restrictions imposed on the operation of its business
        may hinder its ability to take advantage of strategic
        opportunities to grow its business;

     -- its ability to obtain additional financing for working
        capital, capital expenditures, acquisitions or general
        corporate purposes may be impaired;

     -- the Company must use a substantial portion of its cash
        flow from operations to pay interest on its indebtedness,
        which will reduce the funds available to the Company for
        operations and other purposes;

     -- its high level of indebtedness could place the Company at
        a competitive disadvantage compared to its competitors
        that may have proportionately less debt;

     -- its flexibility in planning for, or reacting to, changes
        in its business and the industry in which it operates may
        be limited; and

     -- its high level of indebtedness makes the Company more
        vulnerable to economic downturns and adverse developments
        in its business.

VIRGIN MOBILE: Returns to Compliance With New York Stock Exchange
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Virgin Mobile USA, Inc., received a letter from the New York Stock
Exchange dated September 11, 2009, notifying the Company that it
is back in compliance with the NYSE's quantitative continued
listing standards.

The letter went on to state that the decision came as a result of
Virgin Mobile USA's consistent positive performance with respect
to the original business plan submission, the previous cure of its
share price non-compliance on March 31, 2009, and the achievement
of compliance with the NYSE's minimum $100 million market
capitalization requirement over the past two quarterly review
periods, with the company exceeding the requirement beginning in
March 2009.

In August, the Company reported net income of $21.8 million for
the three months ended June 30, 2009, compared to net income of
$5.5 million in the second quarter of 2008, up 296%.  It reported
net income of $40.9 million for the six months ended June 30,
2009, compared to net income of $10.3 million in the first half of
2008, up 299%.

The Company said net service revenue was $290.0 million for the
three months ended June 30, 2009, compared to $293.8 million in
the second quarter of 2008.  Net service revenue was
$608.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2009, compared to
$600.8 million in the first half of 2008.

At June 30, 2009, the Company had $320.68 million in total assets
and $577.35 million in total liabilities.  At June 30, 2009, the
Company had $267.16 million in stockholders' deficit attributable
to Virgin Mobile USA Inc., $10.49 million in non-controlling
interest, and $256.66 million in total deficit.

                      About Virgin Mobile USA

Virgin Mobile USA, Inc. (NYSE:VM) is a mobile virtual network
operator, commonly referred to as an MVNO, offering prepaid, or
pay-as-you-go, and, following the acquisition of Helio LLC in
August 2008, postpaid wireless communications services, including
voice, data, and entertainment content, without owning a wireless
network.  The Company uses the "Virgin Mobile" name and logo under
license from Virgin Enterprises Ltd.  The Company offers its
services over the nationwide Sprint PCS network under the terms of
the PCS Services Agreement between the Company and Sprint Nextel
Corporation.

On July 28, 2009, Sprint Nextel and the Company announced that
their boards of directors have approved a definitive agreement for
Sprint Nextel to acquire the Company in an all equity deal.  Each
of the Company's stockholders, except for the Virgin Group and SK
Telecom, will receive the equivalent of $5.50 in Sprint Nextel
common shares for each share of the Company's Class A common
stock, but in no event will the exchange ratio be less than 1.0630
or greater than 1.3668.  The Virgin Group and SK Telecom will
receive 93.09% and 89.84%, respectively, of that received by the
Company's other stockholders.  The transaction is subject to the
approval of the Company's stockholders as well as customary
conditions and regulatory approvals.  Sprint Nextel and the
Company expect the transaction to close in the fourth quarter of
2009 or early 2010.


WEST FRASER: S&P Downgrades Corporate Credit Rating to 'BB'
-----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it lowered its long-term
corporate credit rating on West Fraser Timber Co. Ltd. by one
notch to 'BB' from 'BB+.  The outlook is negative.

S&P also lowered the issue-level rating on WFT's unsecured debt to
'BB' (the same as the corporate credit rating on the company) from
'BB+'.  The recovery rating is unchanged at '4', indicating the
expectation for average (30%-50%) recovery in the event of a
payment default.

"The downgrade reflects S&P's expectation that the company will
have negative EBITDA generation for 2009, which is lower than
S&P's previous expectations," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Jatinder Mall.  "In addition, S&P believes credit metrics
will remain weak in the near term," Mr. Mall added.

The ratings on WFT reflect Standard & Poor's view that the company
will continue to face challenging market conditions for the next
18 months due to the depressed housing construction market, weaker
credit metrics, and its participation in a cyclical market.  WFT's
low-cost operations in lumber production, a high degree of fiber
integration, and some product diversity with its plywood and pulp
operations partially mitigate these weaknesses in S&P's opinion.

WFT is an integrated wood products company with operations in
western Canada and the southern U.S. Although its core business is
lumber production, the company also produces panels, pulp, paper,
and newsprint.  WFT has an annual production capacity of 6 billion
board feet of lumber.

The negative outlook reflects Standard & Poor's expectations that
the company's financial performance will remain weak in the near
term due to what S&P believes will be poor market conditions for
the lumber segment for the next 18 months.  S&P could lower the
ratings if bank support is no longer evident (WFT's line of credit
being its main source of liquidity), or market conditions for
lumber worsen leading to a greater-than-expected cash burn.
Alternatively, S&P would likely revise the outlook to stable only
if market conditions for the lumber business noticeably improved,
credit metrics began to improve materially, and if WFT achieved
leverage of about 3x and an FFO-to-debt ratio of approximately
25%.

WILLIAM CARTER: Moody's Upgrades Corporate Family Rating to 'Ba2'
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service upgraded William Carter Company (a
wholly owned subsidiary of Carter's Inc.) Corporate Family Rating
to Ba2 and Probability of Default rating to Ba3.  In addition,
Moody's upgraded Carter's senior secured credit facilities to Ba2.
The outlook is stable.

"The upgrade reflects Carter's consistent operating performance
and strong credit metrics notwithstanding the very difficult
economic environment" said Moody's Vice President & Senior Analyst
Scott Tuhy.  He added "The company's heritage Carter's infant
apparel business is performing well, evidenced by strong positive
comparable store sales at its retail stores and expansion of
operating margins."  At the same time the company has made
progress improving the performance of its OshKosh brand, whose
historically weaker performance had been a constraining factor on
Carter's ratings.  Carter's has also maintained strong financial
metrics and has generated consistent cash flows.  The Ba2
Corporate Family rating is supported by Carter's dominant market
position in the infant clothing market which has demonstrated
stability even in the current difficult economic environment, good
underlying demographic trends, the company's stable operating
performance, very strong credit metrics, and good liquidity.

These ratings were upgraded:

William Carter Company

* Corporate Family Rating to Ba2 from Ba3

* Probability of Default Rating to Ba3 from B1

* Sr. Secured Credit Facility to Ba2 (LGD 2, 28%) from Ba3 (LGD 3,
  31%)

Moody's last rating action on Carter's Inc. was on September 18,
2006, when the company's Corporate Family was upgraded to Ba3 from
B1.

Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, the William Carter Company
(Carter's) is a leading marketer of branded apparel product for
infants and young children under the Carter's and OshKosh brands.
The company posted total revenues of $1.6 billion in the LTM
period ending July 4, 2009.


WORKSTREAM INC: Refinancing Talks; Going Concern Doubt Raised
-------------------------------------------------------------
Cross, Fernandez & Riley, LLP, in Orlando, Florida, raised
substantial doubt on the ability of Workstream Inc. to continue as
a going concern.

In its audit report dated September 14, 2009, on the Company's
Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2009,
said the Company is in default of its notes payable, has suffered
recurring losses from operations and, at May 31, 2009, has
deficiencies in working capital and equity that raise substantial
doubt as to its ability to continue as a going concern.

Workstream said its ability to continue as a going concern
depends, primarily, upon its ability to successfully refinance
approximately $20.2 million of its senior secured notes payable,
including accrued interest thereon that went into default on
May 22, 2009, due to the Company's suspension of trading on the
NASDAQ Stock Market as a result of its stockholders deficit.
Workstream's ability to continue as a going concern is also
dependent upon its ability to generate positive cash flows from
operations.

In August 2009, the Company and the noteholders signed a term
sheet, whereby the Holders have agreed to restructure the Notes.
The term sheet provides that the Holders would exchange the Notes
and the accrued interest thereon (approximately $20.2 million as
of May 31, 2009) into $9.5 million of new senior secured notes
with the balance as convertible notes.  The proposed new notes
would accrue interest at a rate of 9.5% per annum and have a
maturity date of July 31, 2012.  The Company and the Holders are
negotiating the final terms of the refinancing documents and
expect to close the transaction during the Company's second fiscal
quarter ending November 30, 2009.

"There can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in
its negotiations with the existing Note Holders and other parties
or that the terms of any such refinancing or conversions will not
result in the issuance, or potential issuance, of a significant
amount of equity securities that will cause substantial dilution
to the Company's stockholders.  If the Company is not successful
in refinancing the Notes or in otherwise entering into a
financing, sale, or business transaction that infuses sufficient
cash resources into the Company in the near future, any collection
actions by the Note Holders could have a material adverse affect
on the liquidity and financial condition of the Company and its
ability to secure additional financing and continue as a going
concern," Workstream said.

Workstream experienced substantial losses in recent years and, as
a result, have a stockholders deficit of $5,799,422 as of May 31,
2009.  Losses for the years ended May 31, 2009 and 2008 were
$4,856,356 and $52,616,875, respectively.

At May 31, 2009, the Company had $23,075,725 in total assets and
$28,875,147 in total liabilities.

Workstream also noted that as of September 4, 2009, Michael
Mullarkey, its Executive Chairman, beneficially owned
approximately 19.57% of the Company's outstanding common shares.
Workstream said Mr. Mullarkey's interests as a major shareholder
may conflict with his fiduciary duties as a director.  "Mr.
Mullarkey's interests may influence how he votes on certain
matters that require shareholder approval.  Mr. Mullarkey may
influence the outcome of various actions that require shareholder
approval including the election of our directors, delaying or
preventing a transaction in which shareholders might receive a
premium over the prevailing market price for their shares and
preventing changes in control or management," Workstream said.

A full-text copy of the Company's annual report on Form 10-K is
available at no charge at http://ResearchArchives.com/t/s?44de

The Company filed its Annual Report 13 days after saying it would
file the report late.  In a Form NT 10-K filed September 1, the
Company said it was in the process of finalizing the accounting
treatment and negotiating final definitive agreements with the
Noteholders.  The parties to the documents were unable to execute
them and the auditors were unable to complete their required
procedures thereon without unreasonable effort and expense prior
to the date the Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2009
was required to be filed, the Company explained.

X-RITE INC: No Date Yet for Special Shareholders' Meeting
---------------------------------------------------------
X-Rite, Incorporated, will hold a special meeting of shareholders
at the offices of McDermott Will & Emery LLP, 227 West Monroe
Street, Chicago, Illinois.  No specific date has been set yet.

X-Rite entered into an exchange agreement with certain of its
existing institutional investors, OEPX, LLC, a Delaware limited
liability company managed by One Equity Partners, Sagard Capital
Partners, L.P., and Tinicum Capital Partners II, L.P., Tinicum
Capital Partners II Parallel Fund, L.P. and Tinicum Capital
Partners II Executive Fund L.L.C., under which, on August 18,
2009, the Company issued to the Investors (i) an aggregate of
41,561.22312 shares of newly created Series A Preferred Stock, par
value $0.10 per share, and (ii) warrants exercisable for an
aggregate of 7,500,000 shares of the Company's common stock, par
value $0.10 per share, at an initial exercise price of $0.01 per
share, subject to receipt of shareholder approval, in exchange for
the cancellation of $41,561,223.12 principal amount of loans under
the Company's second lien credit agreement that were acquired by
the Investors from one of the Company's second lien lenders
immediately prior to the exchange.

At the special meeting, shareholders will have the opportunity to
vote on a proposal to authorize the issuance of the Warrant Shares
upon the exercise of the Warrants.  The approval of the Proposal
by X-Rite shareholders is sought in accordance with NASDAQ listing
rules.

Prior to the vote at the special meeting, the Series A Preferred
Stock entitles holders to receive an aggregate participation
amount equal to the trading price of the common stock, as
calculated on the applicable determination date pursuant to the
Certificate of Designation for the Series A Preferred Stock,
multiplied by 7,500,000 (subject to certain anti-dilution
adjustments) upon the liquidation or winding up of the Company or
upon any redemption or repurchase by the Company of the Series A
Preferred Stock.

If the Proposal is approved, the Warrants will become immediately
exercisable and the Series A Preferred holders will no longer be
entitled to receive the Participation Amount.  If the Proposal is
not approved, the Warrants will be cancelled and the Series A
Preferred holders will continue to be entitled to receive the
Participation Amount.  In addition, if the Proposal is not
approved, then in the event dividends are paid on our common
stock, the Series A Preferred holders will be entitled to receive
an aggregate amount equal to the dividends payable on account of
7,500,000 shares of common stock.

The Board believes that the Proposal is in the best interests of
X-Rite and its shareholders and, therefore, recommends that X-
Rite's shareholders vote "FOR" the Proposal at the special
meeting.

charge at http://ResearchArchives.com/t/s?44e4

As of July 4, 2009, the Company had $494.5 million in total assets
and $40.9 million in total current liabilities and $256.4 million
in total long-term liabilities.

On April 3, 2008, the Company said it was not in compliance with
certain covenants under its secured credit facilities.  As a
result of the defaults, borrowings on the Company's revolving line
of credit were frozen and default interest was charged on the
first lien loan.  On August 20, 2008 the Company entered into
forbearance and amendment agreements with the first and second
lien lender groups, that provided for forbearance on the defaults
through the closing of the Company's recapitalization at which
time the lenders agreed to amend the credit facilities to provide
new financial covenants and interest rates, with the amendments
effective on the date of closing of the Corporate Recapitalization
Plan.  As of July 4, 2009, the Company was in compliance with the
financial covenants contained in its first and second lien credit
agreements, as amended.

YELLOWSTONE CLUB: Equity Sale Doesn't Moot Collateral Valuation
---------------------------------------------------------------
WestLaw reports that a bankruptcy court would not deny a
creditor's motion for a determination of the amount of its secured
claim, and dispense with a valuation of its collateral, on the
theory that an upcoming sale of equity interests in the Chapter 11
debtors would provide the best evidence of value and make any such
valuation unnecessary.  The prospective sale was a sale, not of
the debtors' assets, but of their equity.  In order to allocate
any equity sales proceeds between the moving creditor and other
secured claimants, the court would have to know the value, not
only of the moving creditor's collateral, but of all other
tangible and intangible assets to be included in the proposed
equity sale.  In re Yellowstone Mountain Club, LLC, --- B.R. ----,
2009 WL 982240 (Bankr. D. Mont.).

Yellowstone Club -- http://www.theyellowstoneclub.com/-- is a
private golf and ski community with more than 350 members,
including Bill Gates and Dan Quayle.  Founded in 1999, it is
located near Big Sky, Montana -- about 20 miles from Yellowstone
National Park.

Yellowstone Mountain Club, LLC, Yellowstone Development, LLC, Big
Sky Ridge, LLC, and Yellowstone Club Construction Company, LLC,

through 08-61573, inclusive) on Nov. 10, 2008.  James A. Ptten,
Esq., at Patten, Peterman, Bekkedahl & Green PLLC, represents the
Debtors in their restructuring efforts.  When the Debtors filed
for protection from their creditors, they each estimate assets and
debts between $100 million and $500 million.

the same period in 2008.

The Company had assets of $5,416,252 against debts of $1,559,343
as of June 30, 2009.

In the first six months of 2009, the Company incurred a net loss
of $1.3 million and used cash in operating activities of $500,000,
reducing the cash balance at June 30, 2009 to $700,000.
Management does not believe that the Company has sufficient
resources to fund its normal operations over the next 12 months
unless sales improve significantly or the Company receives
additional funds.  Additional financing may not be available on
terms favorable to the Company, or at all.  If these funds are not
available the Company may not be able to execute its business plan
or take advantage of business opportunities.  The ability of the
Company to obtain such additional financing and to achieve its
operating goals is uncertain.

Zoom owns a 15% interest in Unity LLP.  Zoom expects to receive
$800,000 in cash in August or September 2009 as a result of the
sale of Unity to Telesphere Networks Ltd.  Telesphere announced
the purchase of Unity on July 28, 2009.  The closing of the
transaction awaits regulatory approval which is anticipated but
not guaranteed.  In the event that the Company does not obtain
additional capital or is not able to increase cash flow through
the increase of sales, there is substantial doubt as to its
ability to continue as a going concern.

Exchange Commission is available for free at:

                      About Zoom Technologies

Zoom Technologies derives its net sales primarily from sales of
Internet-related communication products, principally broadband and
dial-up modems and other communication products, to retailers,
distributors, internet service providers and original equipment
manufacturers.

The audit report issued by the Company's independent registered
public accounting firm on our audited financial statements for the
fiscal year ended December 31, 2008 contains a explanatory
paragraph regarding the Company's ability to continue as a going
concern.  The auditor cites the risk that the Company may not have
sufficient cash and liquid assets at December 31, 2008 to cover
its operating and capital requirements for the next twelve-month
period.


* Canadian Banks See Takeover Opportunities in U.S.
---------------------------------------------------
Canadian banks may step up acquisitions and investments in the
U.S. as troubled lenders falter amid the economic slump, Doug
Alexander and Sean B. Pasternak at Bloomberg reported.  According
to the report, Royal Bank of Canada President and Chief Executive
Officer Gordon Nixon said September 16 during a conference in
Toronto sponsored by Scotia Capital, "Significant opportunities"
exist outside Canada in the next two to five years as banks
restructure.  Other Canadian bank executives agreed, and Bank of
Montreal President and CEO William Downe called this a "once in
decades growth opportunity".

The U.S. Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation on August 26,
adopted new guidelines for investors interested in acquiring or
investing in failed banks.  The FDIC agreed to lower to 10% from
the proposed 15% the Tier 1 capital ratio private-equity investors
must maintain after buying a bank.

The FDIC is encouraging private-equity investors to bid on assets
of collapsed banks as the pace of failures reaches a 17-year high
with 92 so far this year.  The surge has forced the FDIC to enter
loss-sharing arrangements and absorb other costs to unload the
assets of failed lenders.

The FDIC's deposit insurance fund decreased by $2.6 billion --
20.3% -- during the second quarter to $10.4 billion, based on
unaudited figures.  According to the FDIC, the reduction in the
DIF was primarily due to an $11.6 billion increase in loss
provisions for bank failures.  Twenty-four insured institutions
with combined assets of $26.4 billion failed during the second
quarter of 2009, the largest number of quarterly failures since
the fourth quarter of 1992, when 42 insured institutions failed.
For 2009 through the end of the second quarter, 45 insured
institutions with combined assets of $35.9 billion failed at an
estimated current cost to the DIF of $10.5 billion.


* Fed Examining Mid-Sized Banks' Losses to Commercial Real Estate
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Craig Torres at Bloomberg News reports that Federal Reserve
supervisors are examining the vulnerability of medium-sized
lenders to falling commercial real-estate values to gauge the size
of potential losses across the banking system.  The Fed is
focusing on banks smaller than the 19 largest lenders examined in
detail in May, a central bank official said on condition of
anonymity, according to Bloomberg.  The process involves gathering
data from individual banks and comparing it to their peers, an
approach known internally as a "horizontal review."


* Study Sees High Bankruptcy Risk in Media, Transportation Sectors
------------------------------------------------------------------
In response to amplified concern in the market for risk related to
corporate insolvency, Audit Integrity, an independent financial
research and risk modeling firm, on September 16 released the
results of its bankruptcy model research and has identified 20
corporations, with $1 billion or more in market capitalization,
that have the highest probability of declaring bankruptcy in the
next 12 months.

According to the U.S. Bankruptcy Courts, the number of business
bankruptcy filings during the first six months of the year rose 64
percent over the first half results in 2008.  With the increased
incidence of company failures, corporate stakeholders such as
insurance companies, auditing professionals, procurement
executives and regulators, find corporate survival to be a
critical risk issue.

Current approaches to determining bankruptcy risk generally fail
to react quickly to changes to the economic environment, and do
not factor in the potential for corporate fraud.  By incorporating
these risk factors into the Audit Integrity Business Risk Model,
this new approach has been found to greatly improve the
identification of companies at risk of bankruptcy.  Against the
most widely used bankruptcy model, the Altman Z-Score, the Audit
Integrity bankruptcy Risk Model results have been more than 20
percentage points higher in predicting bankruptcy.

The results from Audit Integrity's bankruptcy research indicate
that the media and transportation industries are especially
vulnerable.  Of the over 2,500 U.S. corporations receiving
bankruptcy risk scores from Audit Integrity, TV and Publishing
companies were found to be over four times as risky as other
companies, while automobile and airline industries were just
slightly less risky.

The findings suggest that fraudulent accounting and poor
governance impact bankruptcy risk in addition to more generally
accepted factors such as measures of liquidity, leverage and
profitability.

"Evidence shows that bankruptcy filings tend to lag after an
economic downturn so its extremely important that investors and
those concerned with the risks around corporate failure mitigate
their exposure to companies likely to collapse," said Jack
Zwingli, CEO of Audit Integrity.  "Market volatility and sudden
downturns such as we have been experiencing must be factored into
bankruptcy risk.  Fraud also plays a part, especially when
companies are faced with survival decisions.  These are the
toughest companies to identify because, on paper, they appear
solvent. Our model uncovers the underlying fraud that can be
behind seemingly healthy financial statements."

Audit Integrity has identified 20 companies that have the highest
probability of declaring bankruptcy among publicly traded firms
with more than $1 billion market capitalizations:

    * Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
    * Amkor Technology, Inc.
    * AMR Corporation
    * Apartment Investment and Management Co.
    * CBS Corporation
    * Continental Airlines, Inc.

* Canadian Experts Welcome Major Insolvency Reforms
---------------------------------------------------
The Insolvency Institute of Canada, a non-profit organization
whose 125 members are leaders in the insolvency field, welcomes
the proclamation of amendments that will give effect to a major
reform of Canada's insolvency legislation.

A balanced and modern insolvency regime is an important part of
Canada's efforts to build a strong, competitive economy. While
important new wage earner protection provisions had already come
into effect, Minister Clement's decision to move forward with the
amendments is an important move forward for the Canadian economy.
It will help small and medium sized business obtain financing by
providing greater certainty to stakeholders and streamlining the
administration of insolvencies.

"The IIC worked with the Government, the House of Commons Industry
Committee, and the Senate's Commerce Committee in developing the
amendments. The evolution of this legislation over the past few
years was a testament to co-operation and consultation," said Rick
Pettit, President, Insolvency Institute of Canada. "Also,
officials within Industry Canada played an important role in
ensuring that the legislation balances all of the competing
interests that emerge in insolvencies."

The amendments that become effective this week cover a wide range
of important issues. These reforms include: simplifying the
process of claims by suppliers, confirming the power of the Courts
to facilitate the financing and operation of insolvent companies
so that they can be restructured, extending the powers of trustees
outside of the province in which they were appointed, adopting
procedures to facilitate international insolvencies, providing
protections to both boards of directors and trustees so that the
business can be properly restructured, and changes that will
encourage individual debtors to attempt to work with creditors as
opposed to filing for bankruptcy.

"These amendments to insolvency legislation are the broadest
reform to the legislation in over ten years. They codify recent
court decisions, harmonize existing federal legislation, and bring
Canada in line with reforms that have been implemented by some of
our major trading partners. The new insolvency regime will provide
an important framework for the growth and financing of Canadian
companies and help individuals find better solutions to financial
problems," said Mr. Pettit.

* SEC & UK FSA Discuss Approaches to Global Regulatory
------------------------------------------------------
Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Mary Schapiro and
Hector Sants, Chief Executive of the UK Financial Services
Authority, announced plans to explore common approaches to
reporting and other regulatory requirements for key market
participants such as hedge funds and their advisers.  In
particular, they agreed to identify a common, coherent set of data
to collect from hedge fund advisers/managers to help the SEC and
FSA identify risks to their regulatory objectives and mandates.

This announcement came out of a meeting of the SEC-FSA Strategic
Dialogue, through which SEC and FSA leaders meet periodically to
discuss areas of mutual interest.  Other issues discussed at the
meeting included over-the-counter derivatives markets and central
clearing; accounting issues; regulatory reform; credit rating
agency oversight; short selling; and corporate governance and
compensation practices.

Chairman Schapiro said, "As the regulators of two of the world's
major market centers, the SEC and the FSA have a strong interest
in collaborating with respect to OTC markets and hedge funds,
credit rating agencies and other market participants with cross-
border operations.  Only through strong cooperation can we achieve
coherent oversight of global actors and limit opportunities for
playing the regulatory seams.  I look forward to continuing this
successful dialogue between the SEC and FSA."

Chief Executive Sants said, "The global crisis has underlined how
intertwined financial markets and institutions are and regulators
around the world have to work together to ensure appropriate
oversight.  We are all working alongside the Financial Stability
Board and other international regulatory committees to drive
forward global financial reforms.  The strategic dialogue with the
SEC is a valuable component of the discussions around these
reforms, particularly in areas of joint interest and in
identifying potential regulatory gaps."

The SEC and FSA have worked together closely to address the recent
financial crisis, both on a bilateral basis as well as in
international organizations, such as the International
Organization of Securities Commissions.  Recently, the SEC and FSA
have worked to promote the use of central counterparties for the
clearance of credit default swaps and are actively cooperating in
the oversight of CCPs.

This was the fourth meeting of the SEC-FSA Strategic Dialogue,
which began in June 2006.  The purpose of the Dialogue is to
engage at senior levels on current matters impacting the U.S. and
UK capital markets and areas of future collaboration.
