1ST FINANCIAL: Bank Unit Agrees to Consent Order by FDIC
--------------------------------------------------------
Effective February 25, 2010, Mountain 1st Bank & Trust Company, a
wholly owned subsidiary of 1st Financial Services Corporation,
agreed to the issuance of a Consent Order with the Federal Deposit
Insurance Corporation and the North Carolina Commissioner of
Banks.

1st Financial said in a filing with the Securities and Exchange
Commission that the Consent Order was entered into and became
effective on February 25, 2010, and the Bank was notified of the
Order's effectiveness on March 1, 2010.

Mike Mayer, the recently appointed Chief Executive Officer of the
Company and the Bank, stated: "Our Board of Directors and
management team are united in our efforts to satisfy the
requirements of the Consent Order in the coming months.  We have
already fulfilled a number of the conditions for the release of
the Order. Our goal is to complete our return to good standing as
quickly as possible."

Mr. Mayer also said, "We continue to meet the applicable
regulatory capital requirements and we continue to meet the
banking needs of our customers and communities. We will not lose
our focus on achieving excellence in serving Western North
Carolina."

Although the Bank neither admitted nor denied any unsafe or
unsound banking practices or violations of law or regulation, it
agreed to the Consent Order, which requires it to undertake a
number of actions:

   * The Board of Directors of the Bank will enhance its
     supervision of the Bank's activities, including by increasing
     the formality of its meetings and appointing a special
     Directors' Committee.  The Committee will oversee the efforts
     of the Bank's management in complying with the Consent Order
     and will regularly report to the full Board.

   * The Bank Board will assess the Bank's management team to
     ensure that the Bank's executive officers have the skills,
     training, abilities and experience needed to cause the Bank
     to comply with the Consent Order, operate in a safe and sound
     manner, comply with applicable laws and regulations, and
     strengthen all areas of the Bank's operations that are not
     currently in compliance with the Consent Order.  The Board
     will also assess the Bank's management and staffing needs in
     order to determine if additional resources should be added to
     the management team.

   * During the effectiveness of the Consent Order, the Bank will
     maintain Tier 1 Capital of at least 8% of total assets, a
     Total Risk Based Capital Ratio of at least 12% and a fully
     funded allowance for loan and lease losses (the "allowance").

   * The Bank will develop and implement a plan for achieving and
     maintaining the foregoing capital levels, which plan may
     include sales of stock by the Company and contributions of
     the sales proceeds by the Company to the capital of the Bank.

   * The Board will strengthen the allowance policy of the Bank,
     periodically review the Bank's allowance to determine its
     adequacy and enhance its periodic reviews of the allowance to
     ensure its continuing adequacy. Deficiencies noted will be
     promptly remedied by charges to earnings.  In addition, the
     allowance has been increased as required by the Consent
     Order.

   * The Bank will develop and implement a strategic plan covering
     at least three years and containing long-term goals designed
     to improve the condition of the Bank.

   * The Bank charged off all of its assets (loans) classified
     "Loss" and 50% of its assets (loans) classified "Doubtful"
     promptly following the effectiveness of the Consent Order.
     The Bank anticipates that the remainder of the "Doubtful"
     assets (loans) will be charged off during the remainder of
     2010.

   * The Bank will not extend additional credit to any borrower
     who had a loan with the Bank that was charged off or who has
     a current loan that is classified "Loss" or "Doubtful".  The
     Bank also will not extend additional credit to any borrower
     who has a current loan that is classified "Substandard" or
     listed for "Special Mention." A further extension of credit
     may be made to a borrower with a "Substandard" or "Special
     Mention" loan if the Bank Board determines such extension
     would be in the best interests of the Bank.

   * The Bank will formulate a detailed plan to collect, charge
     off or improve the quality of each of its "Substandard" or
     "Doubtful" loans as of August 31, 2009, of more than $250,000
     and will promptly implement the plan. The Board will closely
     monitor the Bank's progress in fulfilling the requirements of
     this plan.

   * The Bank will reduce loans in excess of $250,000 and
     classified as "Substandard" or "Doubtful" in accordance with
     a schedule required by the supervisory authorities.  The
     schedule targets an aggregate reduction by 75% within 720
     days of the effectiveness of the Consent Order.  The Board
     will monitor this effort on a monthly basis.

   * The Bank will cause full implementation of its loan
     underwriting, loan administration, loan documentation and
     loan portfolio management policies within 90 days of the
     effectiveness of the Consent Order.

   * The Bank will adopt a loan review and grading system within
     90 days of the Consent Order to provide for effective
     periodic reviews of the Bank's loan portfolio.  The system
     will address, among other things, loan grading standards,
     loan categorization, and credit risk analyses.

   * Within 30 days of the effectiveness of the Consent Order, the
     Bank will develop a plan to systematically reduce the
     concentration of a significant portion of its extensions of
     credit in a limited group of borrowers.  Additionally, the
     Bank will prepare a risk segmentation analysis with respect
     to certain real estate industry concentrations of credit
     identified by the supervisory authorities.

   * The Bank will enhance its review of its liquidity by engaging
     in monthly analyses. It will also develop and implement a
     liquidity contingency and asset/liability management plan.

   * Within 90 days from the effectiveness of the Consent Order,
     the Bank will implement a plan and 2010 budget designed to
     improve its net interest margin, increase interest income,
     reduce expenditures and improve and sustain earnings.

   * The Bank will implement internal routine and control policies
     addressing concerns raised by its supervisory authorities and
     designed to enhance its safe and sound operation.

   * Within 90 days of the Consent Order, the Bank will implement
     a comprehensive internal audit program and cause an effective
     system of internal and external audits to be in place.

   * The Bank will implement a policy for managing its "owned real
     estate".

   * The Bank will forebear from soliciting and accepting
     "brokered deposits" unless it first receives an appropriate
     waiver from the FDIC; and will comply with restrictions
     issued by the FDIC on the effective yields of deposit
     products offered by, among others, banks subject to consent
     orders.

   * A limit upon growth of 10% per year will be observed by the
     Bank.

   * The Bank will not pay dividends or make other forms of
     payment reducing capital to the Company without the prior
     approval of the supervisory authorities while the Consent
     Order is in effect.

   * The Bank will implement policies to enhance the Board's focus
     on conflicts of interest regulations and its handling of
     transactions with officers and directors.

   * The Bank will correct any violations of laws and regulations
     identified by the supervisory authorities.

   * The Bank will make quarterly progress reports to the
     supervisory authorities detailing the form and manner of
     actions taken to comply with the Consent Order.

The plans, policies and procedures which the Bank is required to
prepare under the Consent Order are subject to approval by the
supervisory authorities before implementation.

                       Allowance for Losses

The Bank said it intends to increase the Allowance for Loan Losses
by approximately $11 million for the 4th quarter of 2009.  This
increase in the ALLL is the result of an exhaustive internal and
external loan review process coupled with the implementation of
new, automated loan loss software.  This software will now allow
the Bank to continuously update its allowance and provide prompt,
accurate measurement and guidance of the loan portfolio moving
forward.  Said Mr. Mayer, "As we continued to analyze our loan
portfolio, we felt it important to not only update our internal
capabilities for reviewing our portfolio, but to also engage Risk
Management Group to provide an independent third party review.
Both of these reviews led us to the same decision to increase our
loan loss allowance to cushion against any potential further
deterioration in the loan portfolio."  With the increase, the Bank
will now have an ALLL of over $28 million against approximately
$34 million in non-performing loans at December 31, 2009.

ABITIBIBOWATER INC: Abandons Newfoundland Mill
----------------------------------------------
In a related report dated February 8, 2010, CBC News Canada noted
that AbitibiBowater Inc. has decided to abandon its mill and two
other properties in the central Newfoundland town of Grand Falls-
Windsor in Newfoundland and Labrador Province, in Canada.  The
Company has informed the provincial governments of Newfoundland
and Labrador of its decision, the report related.

According to CBC News, acting premier Kathy Dunderdale, who is
also the natural resources minister, confirmed on February 5,
2010, that AbitibiBowater "would no longer be accepting
responsibility for security and maintenance of the mill, which
closed in March 2009."  Ms. Dunderdale said the Newfoundland
government will assume responsibility for, and didn't intend to
expropriate, the Properties because the government "was only
interested [in] the power-generating assets."

"By not including descriptive language to specifically exempt
these other properties, the province assumed legal ownership of
them," Ms. Dunderdale noted, according to the CBC News report.

The provincial government, with the support of opposition members
of the legislature, passed urgent legislation in December 2008 to
expropriate all AbitibiBowater assets in the province of
Newfoundland, except the mill and the two other properties, CBC
News Canada added.

The news source also noted that Ms. Dunderdale has disclosed that
AbitibiBowater is appealing an order from the provincial
Environment Department "to come up with an environmental
remediation plan for the properties."  Ms. Dunderdale insisted
the provincial government's taking control of the mill and
certain other properties does not free AbitibiBowater of its
environmental obligations of the properties.

ABITIBIBOWATER INC: Canadian Province Wants to Enforce EPA Orders
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Abiti-Consolidated Inc. and its Canadian affiliates and their
predecessors carried on industrial activity in the Province of
Newfoundland and Labrador since at least 1905.  As a result, the
Applicants have incurred statutory obligations to the Province for
environmental remediation, which are noted in orders issued on
November 12, 2009, by Her Majesty the Queen in Right of the
Province of Newfoundland and Labrador, through the Minister of
Environment and Conservation in the Province and pursuant to the
Canadian Environmental Protection Act.

The EPA Orders require the Applicants to submit a detailed
Remediation Action Plan for certain sites; complete approved site
remediation actions; and close all landfills and lagoons or
impoundments associated with the Sites within certain specified
timelines.

Specifically, the EPA Orders related to:

  (i) the mining and processing of minerals at the Buchans mine,

(ii) the pulp and paper operations at the Grand Falls-Windsor
      mill,

(iii) the pulp and paper operations at the Stephenville mill,

(iv) the shipping and storing operations at the Botwood site,
      and

  (v) logging camps at approximately 50 different locations
      across the Province,

all of which were either no longer owned or used by the
Applicants in their business.

The Province contended that the Applicants' industrial activities
resulted in the release of substances into the environment in
amounts, concentrations and at rates that have caused and will,
in the future, continue to cause, an adverse effect both on and
adjacent to the Sites.

The Claims Procedure Order which the Canadian Court approved on
August 26, 2009, established the procedures for filing proofs of
claim and the procedures for determining the nature, validity and
scope of prepetition claims.  According to the Province, it is
possible to interpret the Claims Procedure Order as
"inconsistent" with the order granting the CCAA Applicants
protection from their creditors, or the Initial Stay Order, which
permits the Province to issue non-monetary orders that require
the Applicants to comply with statutory environmental
obligations.  Moreover, the Claims Procedure Order might bar,
extinguish or otherwise affect the enforceability of the Initial
Stay Order, the Province notes.

To avoid this result, the Province sought a declaration on
February 15, 2010, clarifying that:

  (1) the Claims Procedure Order will not bar, extinguish or
      otherwise affect the enforceability of orders made against
      the Debtors, the Property or the Directors, as defined
      under the Initial Stay Order, by Her Majesty the Queen in
      Right of the Federal or a provincial government pursuant
      to her exercise of powers, rights or duties in relation to
      matters involving public health, safety, security, public
      order or the environment; and

  (2) for greater certainty, the EPA orders are not barred or
      extinguished, and their enforceability is not otherwise
      affected, by the Claims Procedure Order.

Contesting the Province's request, the Applicants maintained that
the Initial Stay Order, as amended, provides that until and
including March 15, 2010, no right may be exercised and no
proceeding may be commenced or proceeded with by anyone,
including any government, administration or entity exercising
executive, legislative, judicial, regulatory or administrative
functions against, or with respect to, them or any of their
present or future property, assets, rights and undertakings.

The Applicants averred that the EPA Orders fall within "Paragraph
10 of the Initial Stay Order" and are therefore stayed.
Accordingly, the Applicants asked the Canadian Court to:

  (1) dismiss the Province's EPA Motion, with costs;

  (2) confirm that the EPA Orders are stayed;

  (3) confirm that the Province's filing of any claim based on
      the EPA Orders is barred by the Claims Procedure Order;
      and

  (4) further confirm that no extension of the Claims Bar Date
      will be granted to allow the Province to file a claim.

                      Monitor's Opinion

Ernst & Young, the Court-appointed monitor in the Canadian
proceedings of the CCAA Applicants, noted that there is "a need
in all Court-supervised CCAA restructurings to strike a balance
between various stakeholders affected by particular decisions,
all operating within the established federal and provincial
legislative schemes."

Approval of the Province's EPA Motion will allow the Province to
"escape the restructuring process unscathed, whereas the costs of
the remediation will be visited upon the Applicants, their
estates and, ultimately, all other stakeholders, without any
corresponding benefit," E&Y Vice President Alex Morrison stated
in a 34th Monitor Report submitted to the Canadian Court.

Furthermore, the Monitor believes that if the Province is
successful in its Motion, the ability of the Applicants to affect
a successful restructuring will be negatively affected, including
by a reallocation of value in favor of the Province, by increased
difficulty in securing exit financing and by additional delays,
potential complications and increased costs.

On the other hand, the Monitor notes, if the pre-filing
obligations of the Applicants with respect to the potential
remediation costs for the unused properties are found to be
compromisable obligations, and if a claim is filed on a timely
basis or if allowed as a late claim, the Province would share
distribution on a pro rata basis with a class of similar
creditors.

Moreover, the Province would be entitled to participate in the
formulation, negotiation and implementation of any restructuring
plan, the Monitor notes.

ABITIBIBOWATER INC: CCAA Applicants Set Second Bar Date
-------------------------------------------------------
Abiti Consolidated Inc. and other Abitibi units that are CCAA
applicants sought and obtained from the Honorable Mr. Justice
Clement Gascon, J.S.C., of the Superior Court Commercial Division
for the District of Montreal in Quebec, Montreal, Canada, an order
designating April 7, 2010, as the "Second Claims Bar Date," which
date will be made applicable to any person asserting Applicable
Claims:

  (a) which were not subject to the First Claims Bar Date of
      November 13, 2009, including any claim, subsequent claim,
      or restructuring claim held by employees who were employed
      by a CCAA Applicant as at April 16, 2009, or thereafter;
      and

  (b) (i) arising as a result of, or in connection with, the
      repudiation, breach, termination or restructuring by the
      CCAA Applicants after August 31, 2009, of any pension or
      retirement plan or benefit established for the Applicants'
      Canadian employees; (ii) arising as a result of payments
      deferred pursuant to the Canadian Court's May 8, 2009
      order authorizing the suspension of certain payments to
      the pension plans; and (iii) against any of the Applicants
      as a former owner, occupier, person in possession or
      otherwise in connection with any property transferred on
      or after April 17, 2009.

The CCAA Applicants proposed that the Second Claims Bar Date
succeeds the November 13, 2009 First Claims Bar Date, which was
established as the deadline for filing of general creditors'
claims in the CCAA Proceeding.  The CCAA Applicants also proposed
the Second Claims Process which outlines, among other things, the
procedures by which specified creditors can assert claims against
the Applicants and the terms of priority with respect to the
Cross-Border Debtors.

"Applicable Claims" refer to any claim held by (i) the lenders
under the senior secured term loan due March 30, 2009, under
which Abitibi-Consolidated Company of Canada is the borrower and
Wells Fargo N.A. is the administrative agent, (ii) the lenders
under a five-year $381 million revolving credit facility under
which Bowater Inc., is the borrower and Wachovia Bank N.A. is the
administrative agent, and (iii) the lenders under the credit
agreement under which BCFPI is the borrower and the Bank of
Nova Scotia is the administrative agent.

An Applicable Claim will not include "Excluded Claims,"
consisting of:

  -- any Claim secured by the Abitibi Administration Charge, the
     Bowater Administration Charge, the Abitibi and Bowater D&O
     Charge, the Abitibi-Consolidated Inc. DIP Charge or the
     Bowater Inc. DIP Lenders Charge, as each is defined under
     the Initial Stay Order entered by the Canadian Court on
     April 17, 2009;

  -- any Intercompany Claim, including those secured by the ACI
     Intercompany Advances Charge and the Bowater Intercompany
     Advances Charge, as each is defined under the Initial Stay
     Order;

  -- any claim for amounts owed in respect of ordinary course
     payroll obligations or for the reimbursement of expenses
     scheduled to be paid in the ordinary course; and

  -- any other claim ordered by the Canadian Court to be treated
     as an Excluded Claim.

          Monitor Recommended Approval of Second Bar Date,
         Presented January 4 to 31, 2010 Cash Flow Results

In its 32nd report submitted to the Canadian Court, Ernst &
Young, the Court-appointed monitor in the Canadian proceedings of
the CCAA Applicants, recommended approval of the Second Claims
Bar Date as well as the Second Claims Process governing the
review and determination of Applicable Claims.

The Monitor held that the Second Claims Bar Date and the Second
Claims Process will enable the CCAA Applicants to adequately
formulate a plan of compromise or arrangement.

Under the 33rd Monitor Report, E&Y Vice President Alex Morrison
apprised the Canadian Court of the CCAA Applicants' four-week
cash flow results for the period from January 4 to 31, 2010.

As of January 31, 2010, Abitibi-Consolidated Inc. Group's actual
overall ending cash balance of $274,774,000 and immediately
available liquidity of $292,774,000 were each approximately
$30.1 million higher than the ACI forecast.  On the other hand,
Bowater Canada Forest Products, Inc. Group's ending cash balance
at $14,075,000 was approximately $3.7 million lower than the BCFPI
forecast, the Monitor related.

The ACI Group's Immediately Available Liquidity at May 2, 2010,
which is the end of the 13-week period forecast, is projected to
be approximately $216.1 million.  BCFPI's liquidity as of May 2,
2010, is projected to be approximately $10.1 million, not
including the proceeds relating to the sale of certain
timberlands by Smurfit-Stone Container Canada Inc., Mr. Morrison
told the Canadian Court.

ABITIBIBOWATER INC: Files C$500MM NAFTA Expropriation Lawsuit
-------------------------------------------------------------
AbitibiBowater filed on February 25, 2010, a Notice of
Arbitration under the North American Free Trade Agreement or
NAFTA with regards to the expropriation of its assets and rights
in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.  The Company contends that
the provincial government's enactment in December 2008 of Bill
75, which expropriates an extensive array of its rights and
assets, was arbitrary, discriminatory and illegal under
international law.

The Claim seeks direct compensation for damages of approximately
C$500 million, plus additional costs and relief deemed just and
appropriate by the Arbitral Tribunal.  This is one of the largest
claims ever filed against Canada under NAFTA.  Under
international law, the Canadian Federal Government is responsible
for the actions of Newfoundland and Labrador in violation of the
investment protection provisions of NAFTA.

In early December 2008, AbitibiBowater announced capacity-
reduction measures in Canada and the United States, including the
permanent closure of its Grand Falls-Windsor, Newfoundland and
Labrador mill, due to the economic downturn and decline in
product demand.  In retaliation, the province hastily passed Bill
75, without any attempt to consult with the Company and without
holding any public hearings.

The Company has asserted in the Notice of Arbitration that the
province's Bill 75 unquestionably breaches Canada's NAFTA
obligations on a number of grounds, including, among others:

  (1) Unlawful Expropriation: NAFTA explicitly details the
      grounds under which government expropriation can lawfully
      occur.  The criteria for lawful expropriation were not met
      by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador in Bill 75.

  (2) Fair Compensation: Under NAFTA, AbitibiBowater is entitled
      to compensation "without delay" for the "fair market
      value" of each of its expropriated investments.  Bill 75
      does not ensure payment for the fair market value of the
      expropriated rights and assets.

  (3) Treatment in Accordance with International Law: NAFTA
      obliges Canada to provide treatment "in accordance with
      international law," which includes international standards
      of "fair and equitable treatment."  The Bill's seizure of
      AbitibiBowater's rights and assets was arbitrary,
      irrational and discriminatory, in violation of these
      standards.

  (4) Denial of Justice: Bill 75 purports to strip
      AbitibiBowater of any rights to access the courts, which
      is independently a violation of NAFTA.

  (5) Discrimination: AbitibiBowater should be afforded the same
      rights and privileges as all other domestic and foreign
      investors.  Bill 75 is retaliatory in nature and
      discriminates against the Company.

"The expropriation was detrimental to the financial position of
our Company," stated David J. Paterson, President and Chief
Executive Officer.  "After operating in Newfoundland and Labrador
for more than a century and contributing significantly to the
region's economic, social and sustainable development, the
nationalization of AbitibiBowater's assets was unexpected and
unnecessary."

"AbitibiBowater has been engaged with the Government of Canada
and the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador in an effort to
achieve a fair and equitable settlement and avoid a protracted
NAFTA case.  Unfortunately, despite those extensive discussions,
we are unable to resolve the matter at this time and the Company
has no choice but to file a formal claim under NAFTA," added Mr.
Paterson.

"It is our obligation to defend the interests of our stakeholders
and ensure we receive compensation for the fair market value of
the expropriated assets, plus additional damages.  We are
disappointed that a settlement acceptable to all parties has not
yet been reached and we still hope that this issue can be
resolved by a negotiated settlement with the Government of
Canada," Mr. Paterson concluded.

The expropriation relates to a broad range of AbitibiBowater's
rights and assets in Newfoundland and Labrador, including land
rights, timber rights, water use rights and various other related
rights and business partnerships.  These rights and assets can be
traced back in part to grants by the provincial government and
its predecessors, as well as to numerous third-party
transactions.

In addition to the substantial sums it expended to acquire these
rights, the Company has invested hundreds of millions of dollars
in the province over the last century, ranging from capital
investments in mill and hydroelectric generation operations to
road projects that have helped build rural Newfoundland.

Since the Company is incorporated in the state of Delaware and
carries out business activities in the United States, the
expropriation of rights and assets represents a breach of
Canada's obligations to a U.S. investor under Chapter Eleven of
NAFTA.

AbitibiBowater has been involved in consultations with the State
Department, Treasury Department, the Department of Commerce, and
the U.S. Trade Representative since the expropriation.  In an
official statement, the U.S. State Department expressed concern
about the action.  As well, at a recent investment conference,
representatives from the States of Alabama, Mississippi,
Tennessee, Georgia and South Carolina also raised the
expropriation with officials from the Governments of Canada and
Newfoundland and Labrador.

                      About AirTran Holdings

Headquartered in Orlando Florida, AirTran Holdings Inc. (NYSE:
AAI) -- http://www.airtran.com/-- a Fortune 1000 company, is the
parent company of AirTran Airways, which has been ranked the
number one low-cost carrier in the Airline Quality Rating study
for the past two years.  AirTran is the only major airline with
Wi-Fi on every flight and offers coast-to-coast service on North
America's newest all-Boeing fleet.  Its low-cost, high-quality
product also includes assigned seating, Business Class and
complimentary XM Satellite Radio on every flight.

At December 31, 2009, AirTran had $2,284,172,000 in total assets,
including cash and cash equivalents of $542,619,000; against total
current liabilities of $726,539,000, long-term capital lease
obligations of $14,806,000, long-term debt of $917,122,000, other
liabilities of $111,760,000, deferred income taxes of $4,206,000,

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on December 28, 2009,
Moody's Investors Service raised its ratings of AirTran Holdings'
corporate family and probability of default ratings each to Caa1
from Caa2.  Moody's also affirmed the Caa3 rating on the
Convertible Senior Unsecured Notes due 2023, the SGL-3 Speculative
Grade Liquidity rating and the B1, Caa1 and Caa2 ratings on each
of the Class A, Class B, and Class C tranches, respectively of
AirTran's 1999-1 Enhanced Equipment Trust Certificates.  Moody's
changed the outlook to positive.

The Caa1 Corporate Family rating considers the still high leverage
and AirTran's exposure to cyclical risks in the airline industry.
Moody's anticipates that AirTran could generate positive free cash
flow in 2010 because of improving cash flow from operations and
lower aircraft capital expenditures relative to 2009.  However,
scheduled payments for aircraft materially increase in 2011 to
$270 million, which could temper continued improvements in credit
metrics if operating cash flows do not increase commensurately
with this step-up in capital investment.

The TCR said on July 10, 2009, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services
affirmed the airline's corporate credit rating at CCC+/Stable/--.

AMERICAN INT'L: Ex-Gen. Counsel Anastasia Kelly Joins DLA Piper
---------------------------------------------------------------
Anastasia Kelly has joined DLA Piper's Washington, DC office as Of
Counsel.  Ms. Kelly most recently served as Vice Chairman at
American International Group, in charge of Legal, Compliance,
Regulatory, Human Resources, Communications, Government Relations
and Public Relations.  She began at AIG in 2006 as Executive Vice
President, General Counsel and Senior Regulatory and Compliance
Officer.

While at AIG, Ms. Kelly worked to strengthen the compliance,
regulatory and governance framework of the company and to build a
cohesive team across the corporate functions she supervised.
Under her leadership, AIG's corporate activities became better
positioned to restore the embattled company's financial health.

"We have known and worked closely with Stasia for many years, in a
variety of different contexts.  It would be difficult to identify
another lawyer in this country with more complex corporate
governance and board crisis experience, or more character, grit
and determination than Stasia Kelly," said Francis B. Burch, Jr.,
Global Chairman of DLA Piper.  "She has a well earned reputation
as the go-to counsel for companies in difficult circumstances and
she will be a tremendous asset for our clients as they navigate
this volatile market and these challenging times."

Ms. Kelly joined AIG as Executive Vice President, General Counsel
and Senior Regulatory and Compliance Officer in 2006, after the
departure of Chairman and CEO Hank Greenberg amid a probe by then
New York State Attorney General Eliot Spitzer.  She was brought to
AIG to assist in building a new corporate culture.  Following the
financial crisis in 2008, in which AIG received significant
amounts of taxpayer assistance, she was named Vice Chairman in
January 2009.

"Stasia brings a wealth of legal and management experience. She
has dealt with enormous corporate governance challenges during her
career, and her perspective is incredibly valuable in the current
economic environment," said Roger Meltzer, Global Chair of DLA
Piper's Corporate and Finance practice. "Our global platform is
the ideal setting for Stasia to leverage her extensive experience
and return to private legal practice."

Prior to joining AIG, Ms. Kelly served as Executive Vice President
and General Counsel of MCI/WorldCom, where, as a member of the
restructuring team, she helped the company recover from an
accounting scandal, emerge from bankruptcy and position itself for
acquisition by Verizon Communications.  Previously, she was Senior
Vice President and General Counsel of Sears, Roebuck and Co.,
managing corporate legal policy and strategy.  Ms. Kelly also
served as Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate
Secretary at Fannie Mae from 1995-1998, and had been a partner and
associate at Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering, where she had extensive
exposure to regulatory and compliance issues involving financial
institutions and securities firms. She has served on the boards of
numerous non-profit organizations, with a particular emphasis on
providing legal services to disenfranchised and indigent
populations.

Ms. Kelly received a J.D., magna cum laude, from George Washington
University National Law Center and a B.A., cum laude, from Trinity
University.

The Wall Street Journal's Serena Ng says Ms. Kelly joins DLA Piper
about two months after she resigned over government-imposed pay
curbs and secured more than $3 million in severance.  As reported
by the Troubled Company Reporter, U.S. pay czar, Kenneth Feinberg,
in December 2009 capped annual cash salaries for most executives
at $500,000, and Ms. Kelly's pay stood to be reduced
significantly.

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 from the U.S. government, and continues to
seek buyers of its assets.


AMERICAN INT'L: Reports $8.9-Bil. Net Loss for Fourth Quarter
-------------------------------------------------------------
American International Group Inc. reported a net loss attributable
to AIG common shareholders of $8.9 billion for the fourth quarter
of 2009, compared with a net loss of $61.7 billion in the fourth
quarter of 2008.  Fourth quarter 2009 adjusted net loss was
$7.2 billion, compared to an adjusted net loss of $38.5 billion in
the fourth quarter of 2008.

The net loss in the quarter can be primarily attributed to these
items:

   * The $6.2 billion of interest and amortization expense,
     including $5.2 billion of accelerated amortization expense on
     the prepaid commitment asset resulting from the $25 billion
     reduction in the balance outstanding and the maximum credit
     available under the Federal Reserve Bank of New York Credit
     Facility;

   * A $2.8 billion loss recognized on the pending sale of Nan
     Shan Life Insurance Company, Limited;

   * Loss reserve strengthening of $2.3 billion in Commercial
     Insurance; and

   * A valuation allowance charge of $2.7 billion for tax benefits
     not presently recognizable.

During the quarter, certain of AIG's businesses continued to
stabilize and the results reflect continued improvement in the
global financial markets.

The Company also reported $847.58 billion in total assets and
$748.55 billion in total liabilities resulting to a $98.07 billion
stockholders' equity as of Dec. 31, 2009.

Commenting on the fourth quarter and full year 2009 results, AIG
President and Chief Executive Officer Robert H. Benmosche said,
"Our team made great progress during the year in executing our
strategic restructuring plan, by stabilizing and strengthening
AIG's insurance businesses, reducing AIG Financial Products Corp.
exposures, and positioning certain businesses for sale.  I am
delighted that several seasoned, well-respected, financial
services executives, including Peter Hancock, Tom Russo, Michael
Cowan and Sandra Kapell, have joined the AIG team and enhanced our
prospects for rebuilding this great company.

"In the fourth quarter, we took significant strides toward the
dispositions of American International Assurance Company, Ltd. and
American Life Insurance Company; and through the creation of two
special purpose vehicles that now own these two companies, we
reduced our debt to the FRBNY Credit Facility by $25 billion in
exchange for FRBNY ownership of preferred interests in the SPVs.

"As a result of reducing our debt to the FRBNY, during the fourth
quarter we incurred certain losses associated with this debt
reduction.  Back in September of 2008, in exchange for $85 billion
in support, AIG turned over a 79.9% ownership stake in the company
to a trust established for the sole benefit of the U.S. Treasury.
This ownership stake in effect represented a 'pre-paid commitment'
fee that AIG valued at $23 billion as an asset on its balance
sheet, which we are amortizing over the life of the FRBNY Credit
Facility, accelerated for mandatory prepayments.  In the fourth
quarter of 2009, we accelerated the amortization of $5.2 billion
pre-tax of this asset in connection with reducing the amount we
could borrow from the FRBNY by $25 billion.  This is the second
time we have reduced the amount we could borrow.  Last year, we
reduced the original $85 billion commitment to $60 billion when
the terms of the FRBNY Credit Facility were amended and recorded a
similar accelerated amortization amount of $6.6 billion.

"Importantly, in the fourth quarter, AIG strengthened its General
Insurance worldwide loss reserves by $2.3 billion, or $1.5 billion
after tax, based on AIG's year end internal actuarial analyses.
AIG considered the results of its third party actuary's analysis
in reaching its judgment.  This reserve strengthening represents
roughly 3.6 percent of Chartis' carried reserves at December 31,
2009.

"At our Domestic Life Insurance & Retirement Services companies,
recently rebranded as the SunAmerica Financial Group, we have made
notable progress in re-establishing relationships and
reinvigorating sales distributions.  We are very proud that
Western National, one of the first insurance companies to develop
fixed annuity products specifically for sale through banks,
successfully regained its number one position in that market in
the third quarter of 2009.

"We continue to address the funding needs and are exploring
strategic restructuring opportunities for International Lease
Finance Corporation, and American General Finance, In.

"Lastly, we are increasingly confident in how we see the mix of
AIG's businesses over the long term.  We are taking the right
steps to regain our stature as one of the most respected and
diverse property-casualty operations in the world, with a strong
U.S. life and annuity operation and several other businesses that
will enhance our nucleus, help us to meet our goal of repaying
taxpayers and provide value to the communities where we operate,"
Mr. Benmosche concluded.

At December 31, 2009, total equity was $98.1 billion, a
$21.6 billion increase from $76.5 billion at September 30, 2009.
The increase includes $24.5 billion noncontrolling nonvoting
callable junior and senior preferred interests in the AIA and
ALICO SPVs held by the FRBNY, $3.4 billion of unrealized
appreciation of investments, and $2.1 billion from a drawdown from
the Department of the Treasury Commitment related to the Series F
Fixed Rate Non-Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, partially
offset by $8.9 billion of net loss attributable to AIG.

AMKOR TECHNOLOGY: S&P Affirms 'B+' Corporate Credit Rating
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it affirmed its 'B+'
corporate credit rating and other ratings on Chandler, Ariz.-based
outsourced packaging and testing service provider Amkor Technology
Inc. S&P also revised the outlook to positive from negative.
Total lease-adjusted debt was $1.4 billion at Dec. 31, 2009.

"The action reflects Amkor's rapidly improving profitability, in
line with broad industry cycles, low leverage for the rating, and
expectations that its moderate financial policies will continue,"
said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Bruce Hyman.

The positive outlook reflects S&P's expectations that S&P could
raise Amkor's ratings over the intermediate term if operating
performance and leverage metrics remain near recent levels.

BANK OF NT: Fitch Downgrades Individual Rating to 'F' From 'C'
--------------------------------------------------------------
This is an amendment of a release issued earlier.  It includes the
affirmation of BNTB's preferred stock at 'AA+' which was omitted
from the original release.

Fitch Ratings affirms Bank of N.T. Butterfield & Son Limited's
long-term Issuer Default Rating at 'A-' and short-term IDR at
'F1'.  The Rating Outlook is Stable.  Concurrently, Fitch has
downgraded the Individual Rating to 'F' from 'C'.  Fitch has also
affirmed BNTB's long- and short-term deposits, subordinated debt
and preferred stock ratings.  These ratings are linked to BNTB's
IDRs.  A detailed ratings list follows at the end of this release.

BNTB's ratings and Stable Outlook reflects that its long-term IDR
is set at its Support Floor of 'A-', based on its systemic
importance to the banking sector in Bermuda and the local
government's demonstrated support to preserve the financial
stability of its largest local institution.  BNTB is the largest
domestic institution with 40% of market share and is the third
largest employer in Bermuda.  Furthermore, the Bermudian
government demonstrated financial support for BNTB through actions
taken in March 2009 which guaranteed the principal and dividend
payments of the bank's $200 million preferred stock issuance.
Bermuda's sovereign foreign currency IDR ratings are 'AA+'.  As
such, BNTB's long-term IDR is a function of Bermuda's sovereign
foreign currency rating.

Fitch's downgrade of BNTB's Individual Rating to 'F' follows the
company's announcement of a significant recapitalization led by
private equity firm Carlyle Group and CIBC totaling $300 million
($150 million each) and $250 million from backstop investors.  The
Individual downgrade reflects Fitch's view that the bank's level
of embedded losses in the securities portfolio necessitated the
capital raise.  Additionally, BNTB's operating challenges were
isolated and not reflective of Bermuda's banking sector
conditions.  The recapitalization is a result of securities losses
in its HTM portfolio, which resulted in a $132.1 million charge
related to other than-temporary impairment of investments (OTTI).
BNTB has a sizeable U.S. mortgage backed securities in the held to
maturity investment portfolio, which has been reclassified as
available-for-sale.  Fitch also notes that BNTB has also made a
number of executive management changes, including the appointment
of Bradford Kopp to President, Chief Executive Officer and
Director, succeeding Alan Thompson, who has stepped down.
Bradford Kopp had been serving as President and Chief Financial
Officer.  BNTB intends to appoint a new CFO in the near term.
Further, the Carlyle Group and CIBC will each get two board seats
on a Board of 12 directors.

Fitch expects to upgrade the Individual Rating within the next
thirty-days and anticipates an Individual Rating outcome of D/E.
Although Fitch views the capital raise as a positive, the impact
to the tangible common equity ratio is modest.  Following the
completion, pro forma TCE would be about 4.5%.  Given the economic
downturn and potential for an increase in NPLs and NCOs, Fitch
believes the pro forma equity capital provides only a modest
cushion should BNTB experience any credit deterioration in its
core loan portfolio.  Fitch recognizes the bank's effort to reduce
the risk on the balance sheet and anticipates that BNTB will
successfully sell a significant portion its structured products at
a loss of about $150 million to $175 million, which will impact
2010 first quarter results.  Given the completion of the capital
raise, regulatory capital ratios are expected to remain above
minimum regulatory requirements including the projected losses.
Additionally, CIBC has also committed to providing a line of
credit to BNTB for up to $500 million, which further strengthens
BNTB's liquidity position and provides financial flexibility.

Fitch has affirmed these ratings with Stable Outlook:

Bank of N.T. Butterfield & Son

  -- Long-term IDR at 'A-';
  -- Short-term IDR at 'F1';
  -- Preferred Stock at 'AA+';
  -- Subordinated debt at 'BBB+';
  -- Support rating at '1';
  -- Support Floor at 'A-'.

Fitch has downgraded this:

  -- Individual rating downgraded to 'F' from 'C'.


BILL HEARD: No Equitable Subrogation for BMW & Columbus Bank
------------------------------------------------------------
WestLaw reports that under Alabama law, a creditor that had
provided floor plan financing to certain Chapter 11 debtor-
automobile dealerships, which sought to be equitably subrogated to
the collateral position of a second creditor, did not pay a third
party debt, as required to establish the first element of
equitable subrogation, when it agreed to divide the proceeds of
certain contested collateral pursuant to a settlement agreement
with the second creditor.  Neither the contested collateral nor
that amount retained by the second creditor in the parties'
settlement was the undisputed property of the first creditor, the
Alabama bankruptcy court found.  The second creditor, instead, had
challenged the extent and priority of the first creditor's
security interest in the contested collateral.  The settlement
thus did not involve an advancement of the first creditor's
property to pay the debt of the specified debtors.  In re Bill
Heard Enterprises, Inc., --- B.R. ----, 2010 WL 423109 (Bankr.
N.D. Ala.) (Caddell, J.).

The Honorable Jack Caddell rendered this decision in the context
of a lawsuit (Bankr. N.D. Ala. Adv. Pro. No. 09-80117) BMW
Financial Services, NA, LLC, d/b/a Alphera Financial Services, and
Columbus Bank & Trust Company, as an intervening plaintiff,
brought against the Debtors to recover about $1.2 million.  GMAC
LLC, owed $165 million under pre-petition and debtor-in-possession
financing agreements, is the "first creditor" referred to in
WestLaw's summary.

BLANCA LLC: Section 341(a) Meeting Scheduled for April 5
--------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Trustee for Region 16 will convene a meeting of creditors
in Blanca LLC's Chapter 11 case on April 5, 2010, at 10:00 a.m.

Downey, California-based Blanca, LLC, filed for Chapter 11
bankruptcy protection on February 23, 2010 (Bankr. C.D. Calif.

BLOCKBUSTER INC: Moody's Cuts Rating to 'Caa3'; Gives Neg. Outlook
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Blockbuster Inc.'s long term
ratings, including its Probability of Default Rating and its
Corporate Family Rating to Caa3 from Caa1.  The outlook is
negative.  The speculative grade liquidity rating remains SGL-3.

"The Caa3 Probability of Default Rating reflects the significant
increase in the likelihood of a transaction Moody's would consider
a distressed exchange and hence a default" said Maggie Taylor,
Vice President and Senior Credit Officer at Moody's.  "This is
given Blockbuster's stated desire to pursue a transaction which
would strengthen its capital structure, which when given its weak
financial performance, may well result in it making an offer to
exchange some of its debt at a material discount to par," Taylor
added.

These ratings are downgraded and LGD point estimates changed:

  -- Probability of Default Rating to Caa3 from Caa1;

  -- Corporate Family Rating to Caa3 from Caa1;

  -- Senior secured notes to B3 (LGD 2, 20%) from B1 (LGD 2, 24%).

  -- Senior subordinated notes rating to Ca (LGD 5, 80%) from Caa3
     (LGD 5, 83%).

The Speculative Grade Liquidity rating is affirmed at SGL-3.

The Caa3 Probability of Default Rating reflects Moody's
expectation that Blockbuster's very weak earnings and onerous debt
amortization schedule have increased the likelihood that the
company will pursue a restructuring of its capital structure in a
fashion Moody's would consider to be a distressed exchange.  Given
the company's weak credit profile, Moody's would consider such an
offer as a default should it be at a price materially below par.
Moody's expect earnings and credit metrics to remain very weak
given the secular channel shift towards online and vending kiosks
which has led Blockbuster to close a large number of stores and to
further price deflation in the industry.  This, combined with the
likely sale of its international businesses, indicates that the
company's scale will be smaller going forward and that it will
need to adjust its capital structure to a level that is more in
line with its lower earnings.  The ratings also reflect the
ongoing challenges of all players in the video store industry to
identify ways to deal with intense competition, price deflation,
and evolving technology.

However, given Blockbuster's significant cash balances, Moody's
believes that Blockbuster will have adequate liquidity over the
next twelve months despite the lack of a committed bank facility.
Moody's note, however, that Blockbuster's cash balances will erode
over time as it continues to make sizable mandatory debt
amortization payments.  Positive ratings consideration is given to
Blockbuster's well recognized brand name and industry position as
the only company that is present across all channels of the video
rental industry.

The negative outlook reflects the high probability of a capital
restructuring, the challenges Blockbuster's business model
continues to face, and Moody's expectation that its credit profile
will continue to be weak.

The last rating action on Blockbuster was on October 2, 2009 when
its Corporate Family Rating was upgraded to Caa1 from Caa2.

Blockbuster Inc. is a leading global provider of in-home movie and
game entertainment through several channels including; its store
base, website, digital download, and vending kiosks.
Blockbuster's approximately 6,500 stores are located throughout
the United States, its territories, and 19 other countries.
Annual revenues are about $4.1 billion.


BOYD GAMING: S&P Puts 'BB-' Rating on CreditWatch Negative
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its 'BB-' corporate
credit rating for Las Vegas-based Boyd Gaming Corp., along with
all related issue-level ratings on the company's debt, on
CreditWatch with negative implications.

Following a very weak fourth quarter of 2009, S&P estimate that
operating lease-adjusted leverage, excluding earnings from the
Borgata, is in the low-8x area.

"The CreditWatch listing reflects S&P's concern that recent
negative trends in the Louisiana market, in addition to sustained
weakness in the Las Vegas locals market, could prevent any
meaningful improvement to Boyd's credit measures over the
intermediate term," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Ben
Bubeck.  "Furthermore, absent an improvement in operating trends
by the end of 2010, Boyd would likely find it difficult to remain
in compliance with its leverage covenant in 2011, given scheduled
step-downs."

In resolving the CreditWatch listing, S&P will update its
expectations for 2010 and 2011 for each of Boyd's properties.  If
a rating downgrade is the conclusion of S&P's review, it would
likely be limited to one notch.

CASCADE ACCEPTANCE: Court Extends Plan Confirmation Deadline
------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Alan Jaroslovsky of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of California extended from March 30, 2010, to
April 27, 2010, the date to convert Cascade Acceptance
Corporation's case to one under Chapter 7 unless a Chapter 11 Plan
is confirmed.

The extension was based on the stipulation to extend deadline to
confirm Chapter 11 Plan filed February 1, 2001.

Mill Valley, California-based Cascade Acceptance Corporation filed
for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on November 23, 2009 (Bankr.
N.D. Calif. Case No. 09-13960).  Douglas B. Provencher, Esq., at
Law Offices of Provencher and Flatt assists the Company in its
restructuring effort.  The Company listed $50,000,001 to
$100,000,000 in assets and debts.


CASCADE ACCEPTANCE: Files Full-but-Delayed Payment Plan
-------------------------------------------------------
Cascade Acceptance Corporation filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Northern District of California a Disclosure
Statement explaining its proposed Plan of Reorganization.

The Debtors will begin soliciting votes on the Plan following
approval of the adequacy of the information in the Disclosure
Statement.

According to the Disclosure Statement, the Plan provides for the
reorganization of the Debtor and payment or provision for all of
the Debtor's creditors.  The Plan also provides for the
disposition of the Debtor's assets.  The Debtor proposes to pay
all creditors in full over a period of six years.

Claims in various classes will be treated as follows.

   * Class 1 (Secured Tax Claims) -- will be paid in full in five
     equal annual installments.

   * Class 2 (Secured Claims) -- will be paid according to the
     terms and condition of the existing contract.  Any existing
     defaults in any terms or conditions of the underlying loan
     documentation will be deemed cured by the confirmation of the
     Plan.

   * Class 3 (Unsecured Priority Claims) -- will be paid in full
     in five equal annual installments with interest at the Plan
     interest rate.

   * Class 4 (Unsecured Claims - $18,522,008) -- unless agreed
     otherwise by the Class 4 creditor, allowed Class 4 claims
     will retain their promissory notes with these modifications:

       (i) the promissory note will bear interest at Plan interest
           rate of $3%;

      (ii) the due date of the Class Four Reorganized Debtor
           Promissory Note will be 36 months from the effective
           date;

     (iii) the Reorganized Debtor will make payments from the
           accumulated cash on hand.  Whether or not payment will
           be made towards the principal amount of the promissory
           note will be determined by the Reorganized Debtor.

   * Class 5 (Special Unsecured Claims) -- upon application to the
     Reorganized Debtor in writing, any creditor may request that
     the Reorganized Debtor's board of directors consider and
     approve a special distribution to that creditor as a Class 5
     creditor for a sum not to exceed $10,000.

   * Class 6 (Subordinated Claims) -- unless agreed otherwise by a
     Class 6 claims will retain their promissory notes.

   * Class 7 -- will retain ownership rights.

The Debtor proposes to use its cash on hand to pay claims due on
the effective date.  Payments due after the effective date will be
made from the Reorganized Debtor's income or other funds.

After the effective date, the Reorganized Debtor may obtain new
secured or unsecured financing or refinance indebtedness.

CATALYST PAPER: S&P Keeps 'CC' Corporate Credit Rating
------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Rating Services said it kept its ratings,
including its 'CC' long-term corporate credit rating, on
Vancouver-based Catalyst Paper Corp. on CreditWatch with negative
implications, where they were placed Nov. 25, 2009.

Catalyst Paper continues to pursue an offer to exchange its senior
unsecured notes with an 8.625% coupon due 2011 for new senior
secured notes due December 2016.  The current exchange offer has
been extended and is set to expire on March 5, 2010.  As of
Feb. 25, 2010, 89.96% of the 8.625% senior unsecured notes
outstanding had been tendered.  Standard & Poor's will likely
lower the ratings on Catalyst Paper to 'SD' (selective default)
upon completion of the exchange offer.

"Standard & Poor's views the offer as distressed because it
represents a discount on the face value of the existing senior
unsecured debt," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Jatinder
Mall.  "S&P will likely resolve the CreditWatch on Catalyst Paper
once the exchange offer is completed," Mr. Mall added.


CELL THERAPEUTICS: Stonefield Josephson Raises Substantial Doubt
----------------------------------------------------------------
Stonefield Josephson Inc. of San Francisco, California, expressed
substantial doubt against Cell Therapeutics Inc.'s ability as a
going concern.  The firm reported that the company sustained loss
from operations over the audit periods, incurred an accumulated
deficit, and has substantial monetary liabilities in excess of
monetary assets as of Dec. 31, 2009.

The Company reported $69.59 million in total assets and
$87.73 million in total liabilities, resulting to a $18.76 in
million stockholders' deficit at Dec. 31, 2009.

The Company incurred $95.39 million net loss for 12 months ended
Dec. 31, 2009, compared with %180.02 million net loss in 2008.

                     About Cell Therapeutics

Headquartered in Seattle, Cell Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ and MTA:
CTIC) -- http://www.CellTherapeutics.com/-- is a
biopharmaceutical company that develops an integrated portfolio of
oncology products aimed at making cancer more treatable.
Subsequent to the closure of its Bresso, Italy operations in
September 2009, CTI's operations are conducted solely in the
United States.

                      Bankruptcy Warning

In its Form 10-Q report for the period ended September 30, 2009,
filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Company
warned it does not expect it will have sufficient cash to fund
planned operations through the second quarter of 2010, which
raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going
concern.  The Company said if it fails to obtain capital when
required, the Company said it may be required to delay, scale
back, or eliminate some or all of its research and development
programs and may be forced to cease operations, liquidate its
assets and possibly seek bankruptcy protection.


CENTRAL GARDEN: S&P Assigns 'B' Rating on $400 Mil. Senior Notes
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it assigned its
issue-level and recovery ratings to Central Garden & Pet Co.'s
proposed new $400 million senior subordinated notes due 2018.  The
assigned issue-level rating is 'B', one notch lower than the
corporate credit rating on Central Garden.  The recovery rating is
'5', indicating S&P's expectation for modest (10%-30%) recovery in
the event of a payment default.

At the same time, S&P raised the issue-level rating on Central
Garden's revolving credit facility to 'BB', two notches higher
than the corporate credit rating, from 'BB-'.  S&P revised the
recovery rating on this secured debt to '1', indicating its
expectation for very high (90%-100%) recovery in the event of a
payment default, from '2'.

The issuer of the proposed new senior subordinated notes is
Central Garden & Pet Co.  The company will use proceeds from this
new issue plus available cash on hand to fund a tender offer for
the purchase of its existing 9.125% senior subordinated notes due
2013, and to repay Central Garden's existing term loan B.  The new
notes will be guaranteed on a senior subordinated basis by all of
Central Garden's domestic restricted subsidiaries, with certain
exceptions.  The new notes indenture will not contain any
maintenance financial covenants.  S&P's ratings are based on
preliminary terms and conditions and are subject to review of
final documentation.  Upon completion of the redemption of the
company's 9.125% senior subordinated notes and the term loan B,
S&P will withdraw its ratings on those issues.

The ratings on Central Garden incorporate the seasonality in its
lawn and garden businesses, its susceptibility to commodity cost
volatility, and its historical debt-financed acquisition-oriented
growth strategy.  The company's broad product portfolio and
participation in two market segments with good demographics
somewhat mitigate these risks.

CHAMPION ENTERPRISES: Court OKs Sale to Centerbridge Group
----------------------------------------------------------
The sale of Champion Enterprises, Inc.'s domestic and
international operations has received final court approval.  The
sale, which is subject to customary regulatory approvals, is
expected to close during the week of March 15, 2010.  In
connection with the transaction, an investor group consisting of
affiliates of Centerbridge Partners, L.P., MAK Capital Fund LP and
Sankaty Advisors, LLC will invest $50 million in new capital to
support the operations and growth initiatives of the new company.

The transaction is supported by a group of Champion's current
lenders who, together with the lead investors, will exchange 100
percent of existing debt under Champion's pre-petition and debtor-
in-possession senior secured credit agreements for equity in the
new company and a $40 million senior secured five year note.

"The pending completion of this transaction is a significant step
forward for Champion and represents very positive news for our
customers, employees and other business partners," said William C.
Griffiths, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of
Champion Enterprises, Inc.  "Upon completion of the transaction,
our business will be significantly deleveraged and, as a result,
positioned to capitalize on our strong market presence and many
years of operational improvements.  The infusion of new capital
will allow us to fund growth initiatives as the housing markets
begin to recover, and is particularly well timed in light of the
upcoming spring selling season."

CHIQUITA BRANDS: S&P Assigns 'BB-' Initial Senior Secured Rating
----------------------------------------------------------------
On March 2, 2010, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its
preliminary 'BB-' senior secured, preliminary 'B' senior unsecured
debt, and preliminary 'CCC+' subordinated debt ratings to Chiquita
Brands International Inc.'s (B/Stable/--) $350 million shelf
registration.  S&P expects net proceeds to be used for general
corporate purposes, which may include working capital, capital
expenditures, repayment or refinancing of indebtedness, and
acquisitions.

"The ratings on Cincinnati, Ohio-based Chiquita reflect the
company's high debt leverage, volatile operating performance, and
its cash flow concentration in bananas," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Alison Sullivan.  The company competes in the fruit
and vegetable industry, which is mature and faces uncontrollable
factors such as global supply, world trade policies, political
risk, currency swings, weather, and disease.

The outlook on the corporate credit rating is stable.  The outlook
reflects lower leverage relative to the year ago period, and a
solid liquidity profile.  S&P expects credit measures to stay
close to current levels, on average, (including 5.7x average total
debt to EBITDA and 16% average funds from operations to total debt
for the 12 months ended Sept. 30, 2009), to maintain the stable
outlook.  S&P could lower the ratings if performance declines
and/or covenant cushion weakens.  S&P could consider an upgrade if
the company sustains improved performance, particularly within
salads, and maintains a rolling four-quarter average leverage
ratio of 5x or less.

CHRYSLER LLC: To Post Slight Car Sales Increase in February
-----------------------------------------------------------
Bloomberg News' Mike Ramsey said on March 2 Chrysler Group LLC was
slated to post an increase of a few hundred units compared with a
year earlier, the first sales gain since December 2007.  Mr.
Ramsey cited a person familiar with the results.  That source said
Chrysler sales will rise by less than 1%.  Chrysler sold 84,050
vehicles a year earlier, Bloomberg notes.  The sales report has
yet to be made public.

On Wednesday, the Troubled Company Reporter ran a story on General
Motors' and Ford's sales.  According to the TCR, U.S. dealers of
GM's Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac reported sales of 138,849,
up a combined 32% compared to February 2009.  The results were
driven by the continued strong growth of new GM crossovers and
passenger cars.

The TCR reported that Ford Motor Company said higher sales for
every brand and in every product category propelled the Company to
a 43% sales increase in February versus a year ago.  Compared with
January, Ford's February sales are up 22%.

According to Neal E. Boudette and Kevin Kingsbury at The Wall
Street Journal, Ford surpassed GM in sales last month for the
first time in at least 50 years, "presenting a new headache for
the government-owned car maker as it struggles to return to
profitability."

According to the Journal, Ford said it sold 142,006 cars and light
trucks in the U.S. in February, 43% more than a year ago -- and
471 more than GM.  While Ford's results were boosted by sales to
rental-car companies and other fleets, it was the first time since
at least 1960 that Ford outsold its larger rival except for two
months in 1998 when GM was hurt by strikes, the Journal said,
citing Edmunds.com, an automotive data provider.  GM's February
sales rose 11.5%, to 141,535 vehicles.

GM has overhauled its top managers hours after the sales results
were released -- the second executive shuffle in three months.
The Journal said the news underscored the impatience of GM Chief
Executive Edward E. Whitacre Jr. and the heat GM is feeling from a
resurgent Ford.

CODA OCTOPUS: Posts $9.4 Million Net Loss in FY Ended Oct. 31
-------------------------------------------------------------
Coda Octopus Group, Inc., filed its annual report on Form 10-K,
showing a net loss of $9.4 million on $13.2 million of revenue for
the year ended October 31, 2009, compared with a net loss of
$7.9 million on $17.0 million of revenue for 2008.

The Company's balance sheet as of October 31, 2009, showed
$13.1 million in assets and $21.0 million of debts, for a
stockholders' deficit of $7.9 million.

RBSM LLP, in New York, said that the Company has failed to comply
with certain covenants in connection with the secured convertible
debt.  The Company and the noteholder entered into an agreement,
whereby the noteholder agreed not to undertake any adverse actions
against the Company, subject to the Company complying with the
terms of the agreement and the noteholder has waived its right to
demand repayment as a result of the Company's failure to observe
certain specified loan covenants.

In the Form 10-K report, the Company said that for the fiscal year
ended October 31, 2009, the Company has an accumulated deficit of
$59.1 million, negative working capital of $442,520, a capital
deficit of $7.9 million and generated a deficit in cash flow from
operations of $1.7 million in 2009 against $5.3 million in 2008.
The Company has been dependent upon the ability to generate
revenue from the sale of its products and services and the
discretion of the note holder to release cash to cover operations.

Management believes that based upon its current cost reduction
program to reduce expenses by $3.35 million annually; based upon
the reorganization of its business, customer prospects have been
enhanced and is evident in receipt of approximately $3.9 million
dollars of additional contracts and purchase orders during the
first quarter of fiscal year end 2010; based upon the Company's
cash flow projections for its business operations through January
2011; collectability of its receivables in the ordinary course of
business; based on the Noteholder's 12 month extension of the cash
control framework agreement and the Noteholder's agreement to
waive its right to demand repayment of the loan until March 16,
2011, the Company will be able to continue its operations through
October 31, 2010.  The Company's ability to continue as a going
concern is ultimately dependent upon achieving profitable
operations and generating sufficient cash flows from operations to
meet future obligations.

COLONIAL BANCGROUP: FDIC Lambastes Schulte's Bid for Payday
-----------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reports that the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. has
alleged that attorneys at Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP have tried to
soak the estate of The Colonial Bancgroup Inc. with nearly
$1 million in professional fees, including $130,000 for what
should have been a day's worth of research.

Headquartered in Montgomery, Alabama, The Colonial BancGroup, Inc.
(NYSE: CNB) was holding company to Colonial Bank, N.A, its
banking subsidiary.  Colonial bank -- http://www.colonialbank.com/
-- operated 354 branches in Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Nevada and
Texas with over $26 billion in assets.  On August 14, 2009,
Colonial Bank was seized by regulators and the Federal Deposit
Insurance Corporation was named receiver.  The FDIC sold most of
the assets to Branch Banking and Trust, Winston-Salem, North
Carolina.  BB&T acquired $22 billion in assets and assumed
$20 billion in deposits of the Bank.

Colonial BancGroup filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on
August 25, 2009 (Bankr. M.D. Ala. Case No. 09-32303).  W. Clark
Watson, Esq., at Balch & Bingham LLP and Rufus T. Dorsey IV,

COMMUNITYSOUTH FINANCIAL: Posts $18.3 Million Net Loss in 2009
--------------------------------------------------------------
CommunitySouth Financial Corporation filed its annual report on
Form 10-K, showing a net loss of $18.3 million on $10.6 million of
net interest income for 2009, compared with a net loss of
$3.3 million on $10.1 million of net interest income for 2008.
The increase in net interest income was due primarily to a
decrease in deposit rates, translating into lower interest
expense.

The Company's balance sheet as of Dec. 31, 2009, showed
$421.5 million in assets, $412.8 million of debts, and
$8.7 million in stockholders' equity.

Elliott Davis, LLC, in Greenville, South Carolina, expressed
substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a
going concern.  The independent auditors noted that the Company's
subsidiary bank, CommunitySouth Bank and Trust, has significant
capital and liquidity issues.

"The Company has incurred approximately $19 million and $3 million
in losses during 2009 and 2008, respectively, and the Bank is
"undercapitalized" under regulatory capital guidelines.  In
addition to being "undercapitalized", effective February 23, 2010,
the Bank became subject to a regulatory Consent Order with the
Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the South Carolina Board
of Financial Institutions."

Under the terms of the Consent Order, the Bank's various sources
of liquidity will be restricted.

COTT CORP: Swings to $81.5 Mil. Net Income for FY2009
-----------------------------------------------------
Net income attributed to Cott Corporation was $81.5 million for
the fiscal year ended January 2, 2010, from a net loss of
$122.8 million for the year ended December 27, 2008.  Net income
attributed to Cott Corp. was $14.0 million for the three months
ended January 2, 2010, from a net loss of $12.1 million for the

revenue was $386.0 million for the three months ended January 2,
2010, from $371.4 million for the three months ended December 27,
2008.

Revenue declined 3.1%, but increased 2.4% excluding the impact of
foreign exchange, as lower volumes in North America, Mexico and
Royal Crown International offset the impact of higher volumes in
the United Kingdom/Europe operating segment and improved pricing
and product mix.

At January 2, 2010, Cott had total assets of $873.8 million
against total liabilities of $472.5 million.  Total Cott Corp.
equity was $386.0 million at January 2.

"I am pleased that the fourth quarter continued the trend of
improved results and allowed us to finish what has been an
excellent year," commented Cott's Chief Executive Officer, Jerry
Fowden.  "As we begin 2010, we are focusing on the operational
objectives that worked so well for us in 2009 and on pursuing our
goals for smart new business wins," added Mr. Fowden.

"Successfully extending our long-term debt maturity during the
quarter was a key milestone in our efforts to strengthen our
balance sheet and to improve our financial flexibility," commented
Cott's Chief Financial Officer, Neal Cravens.

                 4th Quarter and Full-Year Results

On February 17, Denny's reported net income of $17.878 million for
the fourth quarter ended December 30, 2009, from a net loss of
$3.48 million for the 2008 fourth quarter.   Denny's reported net
income of $41.554 million for the year from $12.742 million in
2008.

Total operating revenue was $140.466 million for the 2009 fourth
quarter from $184.728 million for 2008.  Total operating revenue
was $608.103 million for 2009 from $760.271 million in 2008.

At December 30, 2009, the Company had total assets of
$312.627 million against $440.125 million in total liabilities,
resulting in $127.498 million shareholders' deficit.  The December
30 balance sheet showed strained liquidity: The Company had total
current assets of $58.345 million against $92.108 million in total
current liabilities.

Nelson Marchioli, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated,
"In 2009, Denny's continued to make significant progress towards
its strategic goals of building new units and growing the system's
net unit count, refranchising company units, paying down debt, and
growing profitability.  The strength of Denny's emerging business
model is evidenced in our ability to deliver on these
accomplishments despite the difficult economic environment that
put significant pressure on the industry's, and Denny's, same-
store sales."

Mark Wolfinger, Executive Vice President, Chief Administrative
Officer and Chief Financial Officer, stated, "Visibility into 2010
continues to be muted for both the industry and Denny's.  So while
we are encouraged by a stronger sales driving plan for 2010 we
remain cautious until we deliver improved sales trends on a
sustained basis.  Our ongoing transition to a cash flow generating
and franchise-focused business model has been driving margin and
earnings growth but the impact of further sales declines could
lessen these benefits in the near term.  We will continue to
manage our expenses and capital spending to protect liquidity,
reduce our debt and further strengthen our balance sheet."

                       Committee Initiatives

The Co-Chairmen of the Committee -- Jonathan Dash, David Makula
and Patrick Walsh -- commented, "The Company's existing board and
management team have been given a sufficiently long period of time
to demonstrate the effectiveness of their strategy, and we believe
they have failed.  We do not believe their strategy has created
value for shareholders.  The weaknesses of Denny's management have
forced us to seek changes to the board in the interest of all
shareholders.  If the status quo is maintained, we are deeply
concerned that the Company's future will mirror its past."

"The record is clear -- the current Denny's board has overseen
significant destruction of shareholder value.  Denny's share price
has plummeted by approximately 75.6% since the shares began
trading in November 1997 through December 31, 2009(1).  Over the
past five completed years alone, Denny's share price has declined
by 51.3%(2), an unacceptable outcome.  We note that the share
price has appreciated significantly since the filing of our
initial Schedule 13D on January 21, 2010."

"We believe the board should have admitted years ago that Denny's
CEO, Nelson Marchioli, will not be able to turn around the
Company.  We believe that his poor operating and capital
allocation records speak for themselves.  To add insult to injury,
the Denny's board has generously rewarded management despite poor
stock price and financial performance."

The Committee's issues with the current Denny's board and
management are:

     -- Ceding the #1 market position to International House of
        Pancakes
     -- Failure to grow system-wide restaurants
     -- Unsustainable declines in key operating trends such as
        guest traffic
     -- Inappropriately high general and administrative expenses
     -- Imprudent capital allocation decisions
     -- Lack of accountability for management at the board level
     -- Extremely poor stock performance

According to the group, Denny's system-wide units peaked 10 years
ago, at 1,822 restaurants, shortly before Nelson Marchioli was
appointed CEO in 2001.  Over the past decade, Denny's management
and board oversaw a 15% decline in total system-wide restaurants
to 1,551 units.  This stands in stark contrast to the Company's
closest competitor, IHOP, which during the same timeframe
increased system-wide restaurants from 922 units to 1,433 units.

According to the group, "We believe shareholder concerns have been
ignored.  We are aware that the Denny's Franchisee Association has
expressed to the Denny's board its specific concerns with current
management which have also been ignored.  We are deeply concerned
that many of the largest franchisees of Denny's have lost faith in
management's ability to turn around the Company's operating
performance."

"We are also frustrated that Mr. Marchioli has not built a strong
management team.  Rather than recruiting and nurturing talented
executives, the Company has announced drastic leadership changes
involving key members of management -- most recently the departure
of the Chief Marketing and Innovation Officer and the Chief
Operating Officer.  Merely replacing those two executives will not
address the critical operational issues facing CEO, Nelson
Marchioli, who hired those two executives."

A general outline of the initiatives that the group's nominees
would seek to implement:

     * Create a pay-for-performance culture that clearly and
       measurably aligns management's interests with those of
       shareholders

     * Implement a cost structure that provides Denny's with a
       source of competitive advantage, by sustainably reducing
       annual operating expenses by at least $15 million

     * Reverse the declining trend in guest traffic and comp store
       sales with more effective marketing and an improved price
       -to-value relationship for the customer

     * Rationalize capital expenditures to an average of less than
       $10 million per year

     * Halt value-eroding sales of company-owned restaurant units
       at unreasonably low prices

     * Refocus marketing efforts on a consistent value message,
       not on marketing gimmicks that send the wrong message and
       attract the wrong customer base, and

     * Restore system-wide unit growth through franchisee
       Development

ERICKSON RETIREMENT: Ex-Employees Balk at No-Severance Plan
-----------------------------------------------------------
In separate filings, Sharon Kirkley, Eva Moore, William James
Brattain, Linda Suzanne Vigilante, Kelly S. Kight, Robert J.
Albright, Stacey Aikman and Theodore J. Sirko complain that the
Disclosure Statement explaining Erickson Retirement Communities'
Second Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization unfairly denies
appropriate and obligated compensation to them and other laid off
employees.

The Former Employees point out that unique severance claims exist
that should be paid out as part of the Amended Plan.  The Former
Employees assert that 94 employees of Erickson Retirement
Communities, LLC, had their separation agreements violated by the
suspension of their much-needed income from severance payments
within less than 24-hour notice.

The proper payout of the Severance Claims is less than 0.005% of
the total $365 million purchase price to be paid by Redwood-ERC
Senior Living Holdings, LLC, for substantially all of the
Debtors' assets, the Former Employees tell the Court.  However,
for the 94 ERC employees, their employment represent their whole
livelihood so that cutting off the severance payments has the
most injurious effect on them, the Former Employees assert.

The Former Employees add that unique claims of inequitable
treatment exist with regards to the disbursement or lack of
disbursement of the "GPP Employment Benefit Plan."

The Former Employees thus contend that the Disclosure Statement
should not allocate 0% to unsecured creditors.  Instead, an
appropriate and reasonable percentage of the $365 million
purchase price be set aside for payment to unsecured creditors,
the Former Employees assert.

Absent the modifications sought, the Former Employees ask the
Court to deny approval of the Disclosure Statement.

                    Ms. Kirkley Writes to Court
                       on Severance Payments

In a letter addressed to the Court, Ms. Kirkley insists that the
94 former employees were left without money to pay bills, feed
their families and seek medical treatment.  "This, coupled with
the loss of severance was a truly hardship," she stresses.  She
further alleges that a decision on ERC's motion to honor
severance payments cannot be made because the Severance Payments
Motion was never properly filed.  Neither ERC, its counsel nor
anyone else will explain why the severance is held up, she points
out.

Accordingly, Ms. Kirkley asks the Court to consider the former
employees' hardship.

ERICKSON RETIREMENT: NEI Wants Info on Mechanics' Liens
-------------------------------------------------------
Northwest Electric, Inc., tells the Court that upon review of the
Disclosure Statement, it believes the disclosure statement lack
adequate information upon which it may make an informed judgment
regarding Erickson Retirement Communities' Chapter 11 Plan.

Northwest Electric avers that it is a creditor of certain of the
Debtors and holds mechanic's lien claims and general unsecured
claims against Erickson Construction LLC, Concord Campus LLC,
Ashburn Campus LLC and Dallas Campus LLC.

Counsel to Northwest Electric, Aaron M. Kaufmann, Esq., at Cox
Smith Matthews Incorporated, in Dallas, Texas, specifically notes
that the Debtors have not provided adequate information on these
material aspects of the Plan:

  (1) The source and amount of payments under the Plan on
      account of Mechanic's Lien Claims asserted against
      Erickson Construction, Concord Campus and Ashburn Campus;

  (2) An explanation of why Mechanic's Lien Claims asserted
      against Ashburn Campus and Erickson Construction will be
      paid in full, while Mechanic's Lien Claims asserted
      against Concord Campus may not;

  (3) The meaning of a potentially contradictory provision on
      page 45 of the Disclosure Statement (Section V.E.12),
      apparently applicable to all campuses, providing that
      Allowed Mechanic's Lien Claims will be paid in full;

  (4) To the extent Mechanic's Lien Claims are not paid in full,
      whether the unpaid portions of the Mechanic's Lien Claims
      will be treated as General Unsecured Claims and receive
      Tier A Trade Class interest in the Liquidating Creditor
      Trust and receive distributions of the Trade Dividend; and

  (5) Whether, and on what basis, the underlying liens securing
      any unsatisfied Mechanic's Lien Claims can be extinguished
      pursuant to Section 363(f) of the Bankruptcy Code.

Northwest Electric thus asks the Court to deny approval of the
Disclosure Statement until the information it seeks are
satisfactorily provided.

ERICKSON RETIREMENT: To Replace Management Upon Emergence
---------------------------------------------------------
John C. Erickson, founder of Erickson Retirement Communities,
LLC, will step down as chairman of his company after it emerges
from bankruptcy this year, The Baltimore Sun reports.

To resign from their current posts in ERC are Bruce R. "Rick"
Grindrod Jr., chief executive officer; Jeff Jacobson, chief
financial officer; and Tom Brod, executive vice president of
finance, but they will be retained as employees in transitional
roles through the end of the year, The Baltimore Sun notes.

Moreover, Mr. Erickson's sons, Mark Erickson, chief operating
officer, and Scott Erickson, head of information technology for
ERC will resign but will remain as the transitional employees,
the report adds.

ERC spokesperson Mel Tansill spokesperson confirmed to The
Baltimore Sun the leadership changes and said that Redwood
Capital Investments LLC, as ERC's purchaser, will choose the new
management team.  The new team will take over once ERC emerges
from Chapter 11 by late March or early April 2010, Mr. Tansill
disclosed to the newspaper.

"As Erickson Retirement Communities moves into a new era, it
makes sense to transition to a new leadership team," the
newspaper quoted Mr. Tansill as saying.  The company, however,
will retain the "Erickson" name upon emergence, according to The
Baltimore Sun.

Redwood, which is controlled by Jim Davis, a majority owner of
Allegis Group, outbid a team led by Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co.
in a December 22, 2009 auction to acquire substantially all of
ERC's assets.  Redwood has committed to pay $365 million for the
ERC assets.

Mr. Davis is expected to head ERC's new management team as
chairman and chief executive officer, The Baltimore Sun notes.
Joining Mr. Davis are Allegis Group executives Alan Butler who
will become chief operating officer and Bill Butz who will serve
as chief financial officer.  Five executives from ERC, including
Matt Narrett, executive vice president and chief medical officer,
and Adam Kane, vice president for government and community
affairs will also be part of the new management team, the
newspaper adds.

Under the new management, Mr. John Erickson will become an
adviser to Mr. Davis, The Baltimore Sun relates.

Despite these developments, ERC officials made the assurance that
neither the Chapter 11 filing nor the sale and the subsequent
management changes would affect the retiree residents of the ERC
community or jeopardize their entrance fee deposits, the report
relates.

ERC's sale to Redwood and the corresponding executive management
changes are subject to Bankruptcy Court approval.

            District Court Denies Motion for Leave to
                  Appeal Interlocutory Orders

Judge Gold has denied Fontainebleau's Motion for Leave to Appeal
Interlocutory Orders Withdrawing the Reference and Denying Summary
Judgment.

Judge Gold reasoned, among others, that Fontainebleau's
Certification Motion is untimely.  Judge Gold pointed out that
even if he were to conclude that the three requirements of Section
1292(b) are satisfied in the instant case, Fontainebleau's request
for certification would still be denied as untimely.

Judge Gold added that despite the fact that Section 1292(b) does
not contain an express time-limit for seeking certification, it is
well-settled that a "district judge should not grant an
inexcusably dilatory request" to take an interlocutory appeal.

Prior to the Court's entry of the Oder, the Term Lenders asked the
District Court to deny the Motion, without prejudice.

According to the Term Lenders, if the Motion is granted at this
time, before the District Court has an opportunity to hear from
the Term Lenders on the rulings to be appealed, the ultimate
termination of the multidistrict litigation will not be materially
advanced.  All of the parties in the Multidistrict Litigation,
including Fontainebleau, agreed that centralization is appropriate
because the cases raise related and overlapping legal and factual
issues.  The Term Lenders said they have not been heard on any
issues raised in Fontainebleau's motion for partial summary
judgment including the proper interpretation of the phrase "fully
drawn."

Fontainebleau replied that the central premise of the Term
Lenders' argument -- that they "have not yet been heard on any
issues raised in Fontainebleau's motion for partial summary
judgment" -- is demonstrably false.  According to Fontainebleau,
the Term Lenders fail to mention that they previously filed a
brief as amicus curiae in support of Fontainebleau's motion for
partial summary judgment motion.

           Avenue CLO Files Second Amended Complaint

Avenue CLO Fund, Ltd., et al., each of which is a lender under a
June 6, 2007 Credit Agreement, filed an amended complaint under
the Fontainebleau Las Vegas Contract Litigation against Bank of
America N.A, in its capacity as Administrative Agent under a
Credit Agreement and as Disbursement Agent under a related
Master Disbursement Agreement, and against Merrill Lynch Capital
Corporation, J.P. Morgan Chase Bank, N.A., Barclays Bank PLC,
Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, The Royal Bank of Scotland
PLC, Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation, Bank of Scotland, HSH
Nordbank AG, MB Financial Bank, N.A., and Camulos Master Fund,
L.P., in their capacities as lenders under the Credit Agreement.

On June 6, 2007, the Credit Agreement was entered into among
numerous lenders, including Avenue CLO Fund, Ltd., et al., and
Bank of America, N.A., et al., and Fontainebleau Las Vegas, LLC
and Fontainebleau Las Vegas II, LLC, the Borrower.  BofA and its
counsel served as the principal architects of the Credit Agreement
and related Loan Documents, including the Disbursement Agreement.
The Credit Agreement included commitments for three kinds of
loans: (a) a $700 million initial term loan facility; (b) a $350
million delay draw term facility; and (c) $800 million revolving
loan facility.

A dispute has arisen between Avenue, et al., and the Lenders
regarding the Lenders rights and obligations under the Credit
Agreement.  Avenue, et al., contend that the Lenders have breached
the agreement by failing to fund and by terminating their loan
commitments under a Revolving Facility.

In addition, a dispute has arisen between Avenue, et al., and BofA
regarding BofA's obligations to Avenue, et al., as intended third-
party beneficiaries under the Disbursement Agreement.  Avenue, et
al., contend that BofA has breached that agreement by approving an
advance requests and by failing to issue a Stop Funding Notice.

David A. Rothstein, Esq., at Dimond Kaplan & Rothstein, P.A., in
Miami, Florida, pointed out that if not all of the conditions
precedent to an Advance were satisfied, or if the Administrative
Agent notified the Disbursement Agent that a Default or Event of
Default had occurred, then the Disbursement Agent was required to
provide a Stop Funding Notice to the Borrowers and each Funding
Agent, including the Administrative Agent.

Mr. Rothstein asserts that BofA materially breached its duties
under the Disbursement Agreement by improperly approving Advance
Requests that failed to meet one or more of the conditions
precedent under Section 3.3 of the Disbursement Agreement,
improperly issuing certain advance confirmation notices,
improperly failing to issue Stop Funding Notices as a result of
the failure of conditions precedent to certain Advance Requests
and Defaults, and improperly disbursing funds from the Bank
Proceeds Account pursuant to the deficient Advance Requests.

In breaching its duties under the Disbursement Agreement, Mr.
Rothstein argues that BofA's actions constituted bad faith, gross
negligence and willful misconduct, and favored its own interests
over those of the Term Lenders.

Accordingly, Avenue, et al., ask the District Court to declare
that the Lenders and BofA have breached their contractual duties
under the Credit Agreement and Disbursement Agreement thus
entitling Avenue, et al., to damages in an amount subject to proof
at trial.

FONTAINEBLEAU LV: Examiner Files 11th & 12th Reports
----------------------------------------------------
Jeffrey R. Truitt, the appointed Chapter 11 Examiner in
Fontainebleau Las Vegas' Chapter 11 cases, delivered to the Court
on February 2 and 11, 2010, his Tenth, Eleventh and Twelfth
Examiner's Report covering the period from January 19, 2010,
through February 21, 2010.

The Examiner related that during the Tenth Period, the Debtors and
Icahn have been working to close the sale transaction, which is
set to close before February 18, 2010, the "Outside Date" as
defined in the amended Asset Purchase Agreement.

The Examiner previously reviewed letters from two parties to
contracts with the Debtors, W.L. Griffin, Inc. doing business as
Griffin Contemporary, and Young Electric Sign Company with
questions and requests for clarification regarding the Asset
Purchase Agreement and the sale.  During the Tenth Period, the
Examiner says he continued discussions with the Debtors and the
Contract Parties regarding the letters, which resulted in a
resolution of the disputes between the Debtors and Contract
Parties as reflected in the Sale Order.

In his Eleventh Report, the Examiner mentioned that certain
counter-contract parties filed objections to the cure costs for
the assumption and assignment of their contracts to Icahn.  Icahn
and the counter-contract parties have reached agreement that these
contracts will not be assumed.  After the Debtors file an amended
notice of assigned contracts, the counter-contract parties will
withdraw their objections.

In his Twelfth Report, the Examiner noted that now that the sale
transaction has closed and in order to avoid incurring additional
costs for the estates, he will cease preparing and filing the
status reports every 10 days, unless the Court orders otherwise.
In the event material issues related to the Examiner's duties
arise in the future, the Examiner will file status reports with
respect thereto with the Court.

GENERAL GROWTH: Gets Shorther 4-Month Exclusivity Extension
-----------------------------------------------------------
U.S. Judge Allan Gropper of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York stretched General Growth Properties
Inc.'s exclusive periods to propose and solicit acceptances of a
plan of reorganization for another four months.

General Growth requested a six-month extension.  The Troubled
Company Reporter on February 5, 2010, said General Growth asked
the Court to extend their exclusive periods to:

   (i) file a Chapter 11 plan to August 26, 2010; and

  (ii) solicit acceptances to that plan on October 26, 2010.

Simon Property Group and the official committee of unsecured
creditors asked that any extension to be under 45 days.

In response to the Court's ruling, Simon Property said, "We
appreciate the Court's decision to shorten the exclusivity period
requested by General Growth.  The Court has made it abundantly
clear that General Growth must now conduct a truly fair process
with all parties on a level playing field.  We have been permitted
to commence due diligence, and we will determine our best course
of action as we move forward."

The Wall Street Journal's Kris Hudson notes that if Judge Gropper
deems General Growth's progress insufficient and allows the
exclusivity period to expire, creditors and outside parties can
also propose buyouts or restructuring plans.

According to the Journal, Judge Gropper said General Growth has
done a "superb" job considering the interests of all of its
creditors and shareholders.  Judge Gropper wants General Growth to
move quickly so that it doesn't "miss the market" to get full
recovery for its creditors.  "The playing field will not be
tilted" against bidders, the judge said, according to the Journal.
"Entities willing to make a proposal to finance or acquire the
debtor will have that opportunity."

The Journal also reports that Tom Nolan, General Growth's
president and chief operating officer, said during the hearing
that "four or five" companies so far have signed nondisclosure
agreements to examine confidential data about General Growth's
malls as they consider whether to make bids for all or part of the
company. Among those that are doing so are Simon, Brookfield and
Australian mall owner Westfield Group.

"We're anxious to present the new (General Growth) and its
business plan to potential investors so we can get the highest and
best outcome for all stakeholders in this case," Mr. Nolan said,
the Journal reports.

As reported by General Growth Bankruptcy News and the Troubled
Company Reporter, Simon has offered to buy General Growth in its
entirety for $10 billion.  However, on February 24, General Growth
unveiled an agreement in principle with Brookfield Asset
Management Inc., to invest in a proposed recapitalization of GGP.

The General Growth-Brookfield plan values General Growth at $15 a
share and the Simon offer at $9 a share.

Last week, Simon said its all-cash bid was superior to the
Brookfield plan because it provided $10 billion "of real value
. . . as compared to a complex piece of financial engineering that
is so highly conditional as to be illusory."

Simon's offer would provide a 100% cash recovery of par value plus
accrued interest and dividends to all General Growth unsecured
creditors, the holders of its trust preferred securities, the
lenders under its credit facility, the holders of its Exchangeable
Senior Notes and the holders of Rouse bonds, immediately upon the
effectiveness of a definitive transaction agreement.  This
consideration to creditors totals approximately $7 billion.

The $2.625 billion equity commitment from Brookfield is not
subject to due diligence or any financing condition and is
expected to create a floor value for the purpose of raising
additional equity for the company.  Under the terms of the
proposed plan:

   * GGP's existing shareholders will receive one share of new
     GGP common stock with an initial value of $10.00 per share,
     plus one share of General Growth Opportunities with an
     initial value of $5.00 per share, for total consideration
     of $15.00 per share

   * Unsecured creditors will receive par plus accrued interest

   * Brookfield will invest $2.5 billion at $10.00 per share for
     new GGP common stock and up to $125 million at $5.00 per
     share for GGO common stock

In an earlier report, the Journal said General Growth continues to
solicit buyout proposals and recapitalization offers.  According
to the Journal, General Growth, in a court filing on Monday, said
bids are due May 18.  It will then negotiate with bidders until
June 22.

Lazard Ltd., J.P. Morgan and Morgan Stanley are acting as
financial advisors to Simon and Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz is

GENERAL MOTORS: Vice Chairman Lutz to Retire Effective May 1
------------------------------------------------------------
General Motors Vice Chairman Robert A. Lutz will retire effective
May 1, 2010, capping a 47-year career in the global auto industry
that included senior leadership positions at four of the world's
leading automakers.

Mr. Lutz, 78, rejoined GM September 1, 2001, as the head of
product development, and has led the company's resurgence in
developing great cars and trucks.  He also worked at BMW, Chrysler
and Ford.

"The influence Bob Lutz has had on GM's commitment to design,
build and sell the world's best vehicles will last for years to
come," GM CEO and Chairman Ed Whitacre said.  "I, along with many
other men and women in GM and throughout the industry, have
greatly benefited from his passion, wisdom and guidance."

Mr. Lutz said he decided to retire now in part because hot-selling
vehicles like the Buick LaCrosse, Cadillac SRX, GMC Terrain,
Chevrolet Equinox and Chevrolet Camaro, along with the growing
strength of GM's four brands, prove that a product-focused mindset
inside the company is in place for the long term.

"I can confidently say that the job I came here to do more than
nine years ago is now complete -- the team I have been fortunate
to lead has far exceeded my expectations," Mr. Lutz said.  "Our
product lineup is as strong as it has been in GM's history.  The
perception of our products and brands is beginning to catch up
with reality. And most importantly, the absolute commitment to
being a product-driven company is ingrained throughout the
organization -- from the top down -- and I am confident that,
under Ed Whitacre's leadership, the straightforward, singular
focus on product will endure."

Mr. Lutz, a GM vice chairman, was appointed senior advisor in
December 2009 and will continue to provide guidance on design and
key product initiatives until he retires May 1.

GENERAL VISION: Management Committee Lawsuit Dismissed
------------------------------------------------------
WestLaw reports that New York's six-year statute of limitations
for derivative actions against directors did not extend to breach
of fiduciary duty claims asserted, not against directors of a
corporate Chapter 7 debtor, but against members of a management
committee charged with overseeing acts of the debtor's board of
directors until a reorganization plan was confirmed, who were not
themselves directors of the debtor.  Under New York law, in order
for a breach of fiduciary duty claim seeking money damages to be
subject to this six-year limitations period, the defendant must be
a de jure, and not just a de facto, director of the corporation.
In re General Vision Services, Inc., --- B.R. ----, 2010 WL 571979
(S.D.N.Y.).

Ned Steinfeld, serving as the Representative of the Estate of
General Vision Services, sued (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Adv. Pro. No. 05-
01759) Richard A. Eisner & Company, LLC, Ralph Balsamo, and Shelby
Goldgrab, who served on a management committee that oversaw
certain aspects of the debtor's operations, for their alleged
negligence and breach of fiduciary duty.  The Honorable Stuart M.
Bernstein, 2006 WL 687162, granted the defendants' motion to
dismiss on limitations grounds.  The plaintiff moved for
reargument, 352 B.R. 25, and then-Chief Judge Bernstein, again
said the statute of limitation bars prosecution of the action.

Mr. Steinfeld, in turn, appealed to the U.S. District Court for
the Southern District of New York.  In the District Court, the
Honorable George B. Daniels affirmed the Bankruptcy Court's
decision.

General Vision Services, Inc., ran a chain of optical stores that
provided optometry services and sold eye wear.  On April 16, 1999,
several bondholders filed an involuntary bankruptcy petition
(Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 99-10105) for relief under chapter 11
against GVS and an affiliate, Action Industries.  The bondholders
subsequently moved for the appointment of an interim trustee.
That motion and the involuntary petition were resolved through a
stipulation that was so-ordered by the Bankruptcy Court on
September 10, 1999.  As stipulated, the motion for the appointment
of a trustee was withdrawn, and a Management Committee was created
to manage and review the operations of GVS until a plan of
reorganization was confirmed and became effective, or upon further
order of the Bankruptcy Court.  The named members of the
Management Committee were GVS's Chief Executive Officer, Shelby
Goldgrab, and Ralph Balsamo. Mr. Balsamo, was a member of Richard
E. Eisner & Company, LLC, an accounting firm.  On March 13, 2001,
the Court entered an order converting GVS' chapter 11 case to a
Chapter 7 liquidation proceeding.

GTC BIOTHERAPEUTICS: Inks Note Purchase Agreement with LFB Biotech
------------------------------------------------------------------
GTC Biotherapeutics Inc. entered into a Note Purchase Agreement
with LFB Biotechnologies S.A.S. under which LFB agreed to purchase
from the company a $7,000,000 secured note.  Issuance and sale of
the secured note was subject to the satisfaction of certain
conditions, including the accuracy of the representations and
warranties of the parties and the satisfaction of other customary
closing conditions.

On Feb. 24, 2010, upon the satisfaction of those conditions, the
company issued and sold the secured note to LFB upon receipt of
the $7,000,000 in cash.

                           Secured Note

The secured note has a 36-month term and accrues interest at a
rate of 4%, with a single payment of principal and interest at
maturity.  After Jan. 1, 2011, LFB may annually adjust the rate of
interest upwards or downwards, based on LFB's then-current cost of
capital, as determined by LFB in the exercise of its commercially
reasonable discretion.  Over the term of the secured note LFB may
elect to participate in any of the company's future equity
financing transactions by cancelling all or any portion of the
principal and interest outstanding under the secured note for any
shares of the company's common stock or securities convertible,
exercisable or exchangeable into shares of our common stock that
the company issue and sell in the financing.

              Amendments to Existing Loan Agreements

On Feb. 24, 2010, the company also entered into a Third Amendment
to our Amended and Restated Security Agreement with LFB, dated
June 18, 2009 and a Third Amendment to our Mortgage, Security
Agreement and Fixture Filing dated as of Dec. 22, 2008.  The
purpose of these amendments was to modify our existing security
arrangements with LFB to add the secured note to the company's
debt that is secured by a first priority security interest on all
of the company's assets, including our intellectual property, but
excluding livestock.

                           Going Concern

GTC said its recurring losses from operations and limited funds
raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going
concern.  As of September 27, 2009, the Company had $23.4 million
in total assets against $63.1 million in total liabilities, and
($10.4) million in total redeemable convertible preferred stock,
resulting in $29.2 million in stockholders' deficit.

On November 2, 2009, the Company entered into a Stock Purchase
Agreement with LFB Biotechnologies S.A.S., its principal
stockholder, under which the Company agreed to issue to LFB
$3.625 million in shares of the Company's common stock at a sales
price of $1.07, which is equal to the closing price of the common
stock on the Nasdaq Capital Market on October 30.

On October 31, 2009, LFB notified the Company that it was
exercising its option to purchase the $12.75 million of additional
shares of Series E convertible preferred stock under the terms
described in the financing agreements approved by the Company's
shareholders in July 2009.  This transaction provided the Company
with roughly $6.38 million of new cash proceeds.  In addition, LFB
converted its existing shares of Series E convertible preferred
stock it previously purchased in July into a total of roughly
10.6 million shares of common stock.

Management expects that future sources of funding will include
sales of equity or debt securities and new or expanded partnering
arrangements.  The Company said if no funds are available it would
have to sell or liquidate the business.

Based on its cash balance as of September 27, 2009, as well as the
$10 million in cash it received from the closing of the LFB
financing transactions and potential cash receipts from existing
programs -- the Company anticipates it has the ability to continue
its operations into the middle of the first quarter of 2010,
including normal recurring debt service payments.

The Company is engaged in discussions for potential new partnering
transactions and plan to bring further financial resources into
GTC in the future through some combination of partnering
transactions and other debt or equity financing arrangements.

Objections were due February 22, 2010.  The Committee explains
that it is appropriate to expedite the hearing on FTI's Final Fee
Application because the fee applications of other professionals
in the Debtors' Chapter 11 cases will also be heard on March 4.

                U.S. Trustee Opposes Lazard's Fees

Tiffany Carroll, the United States Trustee for Region 15,
complains that the amount of time Lazard devoted to the Debtors'
Chapter 11 cases, while substantial, has not been commensurate
with its total compensation request.

Curtis Ching, assistant U.S. Trustee, points out that 42.5% of
Lazard's total hours was billed by an Associate or Analyst, which
are noted to less experienced employees and whose time are billed
at lower rates.  Similarly, he argues that 154.2 hours billed by
Lazard agents on "Internal update calls" and on non-working
travel of 70 hours further diminish the apparent value of
Lazard's overall time during the fee period.  The "update" calls
and the noted travel time, while billable, are not the types of
services that help justify a blended hourly rate that far exceeds
all other professionals in the Debtors' Chapter 11 cases, he
asserts.

More importantly, Mr. Ching reminds the Court that Lazard was
retained in part due to its expertise in finding buyers or
investors which are often critical in the reorganization of large
corporations, but the Debtors confirmed a reorganization plan
that does not involve new buyers or new investors.  "With the
Debtors having determined to proceed without a new investor,
Lazard's role as investment banker was diminished and was
reflected by the relatively modest number of hours as compared
against the total fee," he contends.

Thus, the U.S. Trustee seeks an opportunity to review Lazard's
invoices and time sheets for reimbursement of over $165,000 in
legal fees.

HAWAIIAN TELCOM: Proposes Incentive Payments to Union Employees
---------------------------------------------------------------
Hawaiian Telcom Communications, Inc., and its debtor affiliates
seek permission from Judge Lloyd King of the United States
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Hawaii to pay about 845
unionized employees pursuant to the Debtors' 2009 annual
compensation program on or before March 31, 2010.

Theodore D.C. Young, Esq., at Cades Schutte LLP, in Honolulu,
Hawaii, reminds the Court that one of the key documents
incorporated into the Debtors' Amended Joint Plan of
Reorganization is the 2009 Performance Compensation Program,
which is an essential part of Hawaiian Telcom's employees'
compensation packages.  The Program provides appropriate
incentives for Hawaiian Telcom employees.  Pursuant to the
confirmed Amended Chapter 11 Plan, the Debtors are authorized to
make payments of up to $8.5 million to employees pursuant to the
2009 Performance Compensation Program on the effective date of
the Amended Plan, he notes.

Mr. Young explains that a collective bargaining agreement between
Hawaiian Telcom and the International Brotherhood of Electrical
Workers Local 1357 governs the Union Employees' participation in
the 2009 Performance Compensation Program and requires Hawaiian
Telcom to make payments under the 2009 Performance Compensation
Program to the Union Employees during the first quarter of 2010,
assuming applicable targets are achieved.

The Amended Plan will only be declared effective after the
Debtors receive the necessary regulatory approvals.  Thus, the
Debtors are currently working to obtain regulatory approvals of
the Amended Plan from the Hawaii Public Utilities Commission and
the Federal Communications Commission, according to Mr. Young.
While the Debtors cannot determine the length of the regulatory
approval process with certainty, they believe the process will
not conclude in the first quarter of 2010.

Given the timeline of the regulatory approval process and to
ensure that they remain in strict compliance of the CBA, the
Debtors thus filed the Union Payments Motion.

Failure to make the incentive payments to the Union Employees on
or before March 31, 2010 will be inconsistent with the terms of,
and requirements under, the CBA, Mr. Young points out.  Given the
importance of the CBA to the Debtors' ongoing business operations
and strong working relationship with the IBEW, continued
compliance with the CBA is critical and appropriate before the
assumption of the CBA on the Plan Effective Date, he insists.

At the Debtors' request, the Court will consider the Union
Payments Motion on an expedited basis on March 4, 2010.
Objections are due no later than February 25 and the Debtor may
file counterreplies by March 1.

In support of the Debtors' hearing request, Brian S. Lennon,
Esq., a partner at Kirkland & Ellis LLP, counsel for the Debtors,
reminds the Court that there are no other hearings scheduled
prior to March 31, 2010 -- the date by which the CBA requires the
Debtors to honor their obligations to Union Employees under the
2009 Performance Compensation Program.  He further discloses that
the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors, the Secured
Lenders, and the United States Trustee do not object to the
Debtors' expedited hearing request.

                 IBEW Supports Debtors' Request

The IBEW filed a statement in support of the Union Payments
Motion.

Counsel to the IBEW, Rebecca Covert, Esq., at Takahashi,
Vasconcellos and Covert, in Honolulu, Hawaii, notes that among
other things, the Hawaiian Telcom/Local 1357 CBA provides certain
incentive compensation under a Team Performance Award program and
under the CBA, management assigns employees to teams and
establishes performance matrices.  "The CBA provides a target
award -- 4% of compensation -- which can, if performance targets
are met, increase to 4.8% of compensation.  If performance
targets are not met, the award may be reduced to zero," Ms.
Covert relates.

The IBEW avers that it negotiated for the continuance of the 2009
Performance Compensation Program in exchange for a number of
economic concessions demanded by the Debtors, including
substantial changes to retirement benefit under the CBA.

While the 2009 Performance Compensation Program provides for
relatively modest payments, they are significant to bargaining
unit employees, Ms. Covert tells the Court.  Failure to make the
2009 Performance Compensation Program awards payments by
March 31, 2010, would thus be inconsistent with the Debtors'
obligations under the CBA, she points out.

The IBEW insists that bargaining unit employees perform a host of
tasks critical to the maintenance of Hawaiian Telcom's network.
Accordingly, motivation and commitment of those employees should
not be undermined by a failure to live up to the terms of their
collectively bargained compensation, including the 2009
Performance Compensation Program, Ms. Covert maintains.

In this light, the IBEW asks the Court to grant the Union
Payments Motion.

HCA INC: Fitch Assigns 'BB/RR1' Rating on $1 Bil. Note Offering
---------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has assigned a 'BB/RR1' rating to HCA's proposed
$1.0 billion First Lien Notes offering.  Fitch expects proceeds
from the 10.5 year notes issuance will be used to make mandatory
pro rata payments to its First Lien Term Loan A, maturing
Nov.  17, 2012; Term Loan B, maturing Nov.17, 2013; and European
Term Loan, maturing Nov. 17, 2013.  The Rating Outlook is Stable.
Total rated debt at Dec. 31, 2009, was approximately
$25.67 billion.

On Feb. 1, 2010, Fitch affirmed HCA's rating after the company's
announcement to pay a special dividend of $1.75 billion to
shareholders, funded by cash on-hand and borrowings from the
company's $2 billion senior secured asset-based revolving credit
facility and $2 billion senior secured revolving credit facility,
both maturing in November 2012.  This action increased total debt
and compressed liquidity from credit facilities borrowings.
Additionally, the dividend leads Fitch to expect that HCA will
likely continue to use much of its excess liquidity to return cash
to shareholders, which will limit its flexibility within the 'B'
ratings category.  However, HCA's financial profile has benefited
from debt reduction in excess of $1.2 billion and strengthening
EBITDA during 2009.  As a result, HCA reported gross debt leverage
of 4.69 times (x) for fiscal year ending Dec. 31, 2009, prior to
the special dividend being paid.

HCA's ratings reflect the company's significant leverage and
challenging industry environment, partially offset by improvements
in the company's operations.  In addition, HCA's operations have
continued to improve as a result of cost management efforts,
strong same-facility admissions growth (including its eighth
consecutive quarter of positive same-facility adjusted admissions
growth reported for the third quarter of 2009), and new emergency
room coding efforts.  However, Fitch expects the recent cost
benefit to the hospital industry stemming from improved labor
costs will likely moderate, once unemployment improves.

Key rating concerns also include the large amount of debt maturing
in the next several years, continued shareholder-friendly
transactions and an uncertain industry environment.  Industry
uncertainty is being driven by stubbornly high unemployment
leading to prolonged pressure on bad debt expense as well as the
potential for health care reform.  Finally, Fitch notes that an
exit by HCA's private equity sponsors through, for example, an
initial public offering, could also have an impact on its credit
profile.

At Dec. 31, 2009, HCA had $312 million in cash, $1.3 billion
available on its asset-based borrowing facility and $1.9 billion
available on its revolver.  Subsequent to the mandatory
prepayments, Fitch expects that HCA will have approximately
$250 million of loans due in 2011, $1.45 billion of loans due in
2012 and $6.31 billion due in 2013.  In addition, HCA has
approximately $760 million of bonds maturing in 2010, $270 million
maturing in 2011, $900 million maturing in 2012, $1 billion
maturing in 2013, $1.6 billion maturing in 2014, $900 million
maturing in 2015 and $5.8 billion maturing in 2016.

Fitch currently rates HCA Inc.'s debt:

  -- Issuer Default Rating 'B';
  -- Secured bank credit facility 'BB/RR1';
  -- First lien notes 'BB/RR1';
  -- Second lien notes 'B+/RR3';
  -- Senior unsecured notes 'CCC/RR6'.

The Rating Outlook is Stable.


HCA INC: Moody's Assigns 'Ba3' Rating on $1 Bil. Senior Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Ba3 (LGD3, 32%) rating to HCA
Inc.'s proposed offering of $1.0 billion of first lien senior
secured notes due 2020.  Moody's also affirmed the existing
ratings of HCA, including the B2 Corporate Family and Probability
of Default Ratings.  The outlook for the ratings is stable.

Moody's understands that the proceeds from the proposed offering
will be used to prepay, on a pro rata basis, outstanding amounts
on the company's senior secured term loans.  Therefore, the
proposed issuance is not expected to result in any change in the
company's leverage.  "Much like the secured note offerings
completed in 2009, the current transaction continues to chip away
at the considerable amount of bank debt scheduled to mature in the
2012 and 2013 time frame," said Dean Diaz, Vice President --
Senior Credit Officer at Moody's.  While the repayment of bank
debt with the proceeds of these secured note offerings is expected
to increase interest expense, it is not expected to materially
affect cash flow and interest coverage metrics.

HCA's B2 Corporate Family Rating continues to reflect the
significant leverage of the company resulting from the November
2006 leveraged buyout.  The considerable interest cost associated
with the debt load continues to constrain interest coverage
metrics and limits free cash flow.  The rating also reflects the
anticipation that HCA's scale, market strength and recent focus on
cost containment should aid in weathering the unfavorable trends
in bad debt expense and weak volumes that have been and are
expected to continue to plague the industry as a whole.
Additionally, the company is expected to maintain good liquidity
over the next year even after funding the February 2010
distribution to shareholders with a draw down of the company's
available revolving credit facilities.

Moody's rating actions are summarized below.

Ratings assigned:

  -- $1,000 million first lien secured notes due 2020, Ba3 (LGD3,
     32%)

Ratings affirmed:

  -- $2,000 million ABL Revolver due 2012, Ba2 (LGD2, 12%)

  -- $2,000 million Revolving Credit Facility due 2012, Ba3 (LGD3,
     32%)

  -- $2,750 million Term Loan A due 2012, Ba3 (LGD3, 32%)

  -- $8,800 million Term Loan B due 2013, to Ba3 (LGD3, 32%)

  -- $1,250 million Euro Term Loan due 2013, Ba3 (LGD2, 23%)

  -- $1,500 million first lien secured notes due 2019, Ba3 (LGD3,
     32%)

  -- $1,250 million first lien secured notes due 2020, Ba3 (LGD3,
     32%)

  -- $1,000 million Second Lien Notes due 2014, B2 (LGD4, 57%)

  -- $3,200 million Second Lien Notes due 2016, B2 (LGD4, 57%)

  -- $1,500 million Second Lien PIK Notes due 2016, B2 (LGD4, 57%)

  -- Senior unsecured notes (various), Caa1 (LGD6, 90%)

  -- Corporate Family Rating, B2

  -- Probability of Default Rating, B2

  -- Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, SGL-2

Moody's last rating action was on July 29, 2009, when Moody's
assigned a Ba3 rating to HCA's first lien senior secured notes
offering and affirmed the existing ratings of the company.
Moody's also commented on January 29, 2009 that the company's
decision to make a distribution of $1.75 billion to its
shareholders had no impact on the rating.

Headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, HCA is the nation's largest
acute care hospital company with 163 hospitals and 105
freestanding surgery centers (including eight hospitals and eight
freestanding surgery centers that are accounted for using the
equity method) as of December 31, 2009.  For the year ended
December 31, 2009, the company recognized revenue in excess of
$30 billion.


HCA INC: S&P Assigns 'BB' Rating on $1 Bil. Senior Secured Notes
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it assigned an issue-
level rating of 'BB' and a recovery rating of '1' to HCA Inc.'s
proposed $1 billion senior secured notes due 2020.  All other
ratings are unchanged.  The '1' recovery rating indicates the
expectation for very high (90%-100%) recovery of principal in the
event of default.  The corporate credit rating on HCA Inc. is
'B+'.  The rating outlook is positive.

"The rating on HCA Inc. reflects industry uncertainties that the
company faces in addition to still-significant debt leverage,"
said Standard & Poor's credit analyst David Peknay.

HOMELAND SECURITY: Posts $818,616 Net Income for Dec. 31 Quarter
----------------------------------------------------------------
Homeland Security Capital Corporation reported net income
attributable to its common stockholders of $818,616 for the three
months ended December 31, 2009, from a net loss of $704,843 for
the same period in 2008.  The Company posted a net loss
attributable to common stockholders of $362,367 for the six months
ended December 31, 2009, from a net loss of $2,960,052 for the
same period a year ago.

Net contract revenue was $26,572,415 for the fiscal second quarter
ended December 31, 2009, from $22,212,461 for the fiscal 2008
second quarter.  Net contract revenue was $47,421,857 for the six
months ended December 31, 2009, from $39,879,692 for the same
period in 2008.

At December 31, 2009, the Company had total assets of $35,815,519
against total liabilities of $38,018,448 and Warrants Payable --
Series H Preferred Stock of $169,768.  Stockholders' deficit was
$2,372,697 at December 31, 2009.

A full-text copy of the Company's quarterly report on Form 10-Q is
available at no charge at http://ResearchArchives.com/t/s?55f9

In March 2008, the Company entered into a stock purchase agreement
with YA Global Investments, L.P. pursuant to which the Company
sold to YA 10,000 shares of its Series H Convertible Preferred
Stock.  The Series H Stock is convertible into shares of Common
Stock at an initial ratio of 33,333 shares of Common Stock for
each share of Series H Stock, subject to adjustments -- including
the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, Safety & Ecology Holdings
Corporation, achieving certain earnings milestones, as defined,
for the calendar years ending December 31, 2009 and 2008.

Safety operates its business on a fiscal year ending June 30.
Safety achieved the first milestone for the calendar year ending
December 31, 2008.  However, the second financial milestone for
the calendar year ended December 31, 2009, has not been satisfied,
resulting in a potential adjustment to the conversion ratio
yielding approximately 56,300 shares of Common Stock for each
share of Series H Stock, or approximately a potential additional
230,000,000 shares of the Company's Common Stock in the aggregate.

Management is discussing with YA the possibility of a waiver or
amendment of any adjustment to the Series H Stock conversion
ratio, however there can be no assurances YA will waive or amend
the adjustment, if any, to the Series H Stock conversion ratio.
YA has not exercised its conversion rights as of February 22,
2010.

In June 2009 the Company entered into an agreement YA extending
the due date on its senior notes payable, and accrued interest, to
YA from March 14, 2010, until October 1, 2010, for $2,500,000 and
April 1, 2011, for $10,560,000.  In exchange, the Company agreed
to an increase in the interest rate, from 13% to 15%, on the
senior notes payable and certain other debt due to YA, effective
January 1, 2010, if the Company failed to secure a certain
contract by March 2010.  In December 2009, the Company was
informed that it had been eliminated from the award process for
this contract. Accordingly, the Company will begin recording
interest expense at the increased rate effective January 1, 2010.

HUDSON'S FURNITURE: Files for Bankruptcy to Restructure REIT Debt
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Furniture Today says Hudson's Furniture Showrooms made a voluntary

filing came after talks on reducing real estate expenses with the
company's banks fell through.

Hudson's Furniture Showrooms operates a furniture showroom.  The
Company plans to unveil a new Hudson's after remodeling nine of
its 12 full-line showrooms.  The new company will be led by former
executive vice president Joshua Hudson, the report says.


IMPLANT SCIENCES: Reports $1.62-Mil. Net Loss for Dec. 31 Quarter
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Implant Sciences Corporation reported a net loss of $1,624,000 for
the three months ended December 31, 2009, from a net loss of
$2,061,000 for the 2008 quarter.  The Company reported a net loss
of $3,273,000 for the six months ended December 31, 2009, from a
net loss of $1,705,000 for the 2008 period.

Revenues were $603,000 for the three months ended December 31,
2009, from $1,519,000 for the 2008 quarter.  Revenues were
$2,423,000 for the six months ended December 31, 2009, from
$7,467,000 for the 2008 period.

As of December 31, 2009, the Company had total assets of
$5,475,000 against total liabilities of $12,995,000, including
total current liabilities of $12,928,000, and Series E Convertible
Preferred Stock of $5,000,000, and Series F Convertible Preferred
Stock of $378,000, resulting in stockholders' deficit of
$9,918,000.

In its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the December 2009 period,
the Company indicated it has suffered recurring losses from
operations.  The Company said there can be no assurances that its
forecasted results will be achieved or that it will be able to
raise additional capital necessary to operate its business.  These
conditions, according to the Company, raise substantial doubt
about its ability to continue as a going concern.

"We have experienced a reduction in security revenue in the six-
month period ended December 31, 2009, as compared with the
comparable prior year period, relating to a decline in unit sales
of our trace explosives products.  Security product sales tend to
have a long sale cycle, and are often subject to export controls.
In an effort to identify new opportunities and stimulate sales, we
have implemented a new sales tool to assist in this effort.
However, there can be no assurance that these efforts will
increase revenue," the Company said.

"We have a history of being active in submitting proposals for
government sponsored grants and contracts and successful in being
awarded grants and contracts from government agencies. However, we
have experienced a decline in government contract revenue in the
six month period ended December 31, 2009, as compared to the
comparable prior year period, due to the expiration of several
contracts in the six month period ended December 31, 2009.
Management will continue to pursue these grants and contracts to
support our research and development efforts primarily in the
areas of trace explosives detection," the Company added.

INERGY LP: S&P Changes Outlook to Positive; Affirms 'BB-' Rating
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised the outlook on Inergy
LP to positive from stable, and affirmed its 'BB-' corporate
credit rating and 'B+' senior unsecured issue rating.  A recovery
rating of '5' remains unchanged.  The rating action follows S&P's
review of the partnership and reflects its view that the fee-based
midstream business will continue to grow and should account for
more than 40% of EBITDA during the next 12 to 18 months and
provide stable cash flows.  As of Dec. 31, 2009, Inergy had total
debt, adjusted for operating leases and self-insurance reserves,
of $1.4 billion.

S&P's outlook revision primarily stems from the increasing
importance of Inergy's midstream business.  In S&P's view, this
business provides a more stable cash flow stream than the propane
segment.  S&P expects Inergy's midstream operations, which get
support from long-term, fee-based contracts with mostly
investment-grade counterparties, to account for about 40% of 2010
EBITDA.  S&P believes this business could increase to about 50% of
EBITDA by 2012, after the Marc 1 Hub and North-South projects are
fully on-line.  S&P is revising its business risk profile to
'fair' from 'weak' to reflect midstream's larger contribution to
Inergy's overall business mix.  Inergy's U.S. Salt business also
provides relatively stable cash flows with about 70% of the salt
volumes under firm contracts that range from one to three years.
U.S. Salt is also strategically situated near Inergy's Stagecoach,
Steuben, Thomas Corners, and Bath storage facilities and can
provide incremental natural gas and liquid petroleum gas storage
capacity.  The company's midstream assets are strategically
positioned to benefit from the high-demand Northeastern markets
and the rising production out of the Marcellus Shale.


INTEGRITY BANK: Loans to Single Borrower Led to Demise
------------------------------------------------------
Kris Hudson and Lingling Wei at The Wall Street Journal report
that the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. is investigating the loan
practices at Integrity Bank of Alpharetta, Georgia.  Integrity was
seized by banking regulators in August 2008 after lending all its
capital to commercial-real-estate developer Guy Mitchell, of Coral
Gables, Florida.

Integrity's deposits were sold to a unit of Regions Financial
Corp., and the FDIC was stuck with 97% of Integrity's $1.1 billion
in assets, according to the agency, the Journal reports.  The
bank's failure cost the U.S. deposit-insurance fund $295 million,
according to the Journal.

The Journal notes that under Georgia law, it was originally
illegal for banks to lend more than 25% of their total capital
into a single borrower.  The Journal relates that according to
regulators and an internal investigation before Integrity failed,
Integrity worked around the borrowing limit partly by extending
credit on different properties owned by Mr. Mitchell.  That
eventually led to losses of more than $44 million on the loans.

The Journal says by 2008, Mr. Mitchell had 14 different loans from
Integrity that added up to $83 million, or 127% of the bank's
total capital of $65.3 million as of the middle of that year,
according to court and regulatory filings.  The loans were secured
by the hotel, shopping centers and his home in Florida.

The Journal also relates that unlike many borrowers, Mr. Mitchell
wasn't required to make payments on the loans out of his own
pocket.  Instead, according to Mr. Ellis, each loan had interest
reserves, or money that is set aside to cover payments until a
real-estate project starts generating cash flow.  Some regulators
have criticized the use of interest reserves, claiming they can
make it harder to detect troubled loans.

According to the Journal, Mr. Mitchell's loans suffered as the
real-estate market weakened.  At least several loans were in
default by 2007.  An internal investigation by Integrity's board
found that some Integrity executives lent more money to Mr.
Mitchell to boost their own pay.

The Journal says when the FDIC moved in 2009 to foreclose on the
125-year-old Casa Madrona Hotel & Spa, one of Mr. Mitchell's
properties, the hotel filed for bankruptcy protection.  A federal
judge ruled that the agency could proceed with the sale.

The Journal also relates that, according to documents filed in the
bankruptcy, before Integrity failed, it scrambled to salvage Mr.
Mitchell's shaky loans.  The Journal says bank officials hoped to
sell the hotel and his shopping centers, and appraisals of Casa
Madrona estimated the hotel was worth $30 million to $80 million.
But the bank's overall losses had depleted its capital, and
regulators swooped in to shut down the bank.

INTERNATIONAL COAL: Moody's Upgrades Corp. Family Rating to 'Caa1'
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service upgraded the ratings of International
Coal Group, including the corporate family rating, to Caa1 from
Caa2.  The rating outlook is stable.  Simultaneously, Moody's
assigned a Ba3 rating to the new $125 million senior secured asset
based loan facility and withdrew the B1 rating on the previous
facility.  The speculative grade liquidity rating was also raised
to SGL-3 from SGL-4.

The upgrade of ICG to Caa1 reflects the improved capital structure
profile stemming from ICG's reduced debt levels and elimination of
most financial maintenance covenants in the company's new ABL
facility.  Moody's estimates that ICG benefits from approximately
$85 million less debt following the exchange of its convertible
notes for equity, over $7 million in less interest, and a slight
improvement in its maturity profile.  The upgrade also considers
credit enhancements related to improved financial performance and
a stronger liquidity position stemming from a relatively strong
year in which ICG benefited from a well-contracted position, cost
containment, and increasing higher value metallurgical production.

The Caa1 rating incorporates ICG's elevated cost structure amidst
an uncertain price environment, inherent operating risk at its
mines, history of operating and financial challenges, significant
capital spending requirements, and uncertainty regarding mine
permitting obstacles particularly given the large percentage of
surface mine production.  While ICG has committed and priced most
of its anticipated production in 2010, slightly more than half of
its production remains uncommitted in 2011.  The ratings reflect
Moody's concerns about the company's ability to maintain its
margins amidst a high cost structure and uncertain thermal market
conditions.

The stable outlook assumes that conditions do not deteriorate
significantly in the steam coal market and ICG maintains adequate
liquidity and is able to refinance in the short-term most of its
convertible notes which are due in 2012.  While the new ABL's
maturity is nominally 2014, it could become due as early as August
of 2011 if the company has been unable to refinance most of its
convertible notes.

The upgrade of the speculative grade liquidity rating to SGL-3
from SGL-4 considers Moody's opinion of ICG's adequate liquidity
profile in light of its cash balance and the capital structure.
Internal liquidity is provided by approximately $93 million of
balance sheet cash at December 31, 2009 (though Moody's expects
this to decline over the immediate term due to interest payments
and seasonal working capital needs) and expected cash flow from
operations over the next twelve months.  However, Moody's believes
that free cash flow could be limited after consideration of
approximately $90 million of maintenance capex in 2010.  While the
new ABL facility will be governed by a borrowing base and will
only maintain a capex limitation and springing fixed charge
coverage ratio, ABL availability is likely to be limited by at
least $74 million of letters of credit outstanding.

Ratings impacted by the actions include:

  -- Corporate Family Rating upgraded to Caa1 from Caa2

  -- Probability of Default Rating upgraded to Caa1 from Caa2

  -- $125 million asset based loan facility due 2014 assigned Ba3
     (LGD 2; 18%)

  -- $175 million 10.25% senior unsecured notes due 2014 upgraded
     to Caa2 (LGD 5; 70%) from Caa3 (LGD 4; 67%)

  -- Outlook changed to stable from negative

  -- SGL upgraded to SGL-3 from SGL-4

Rating to be withdrawn:

  -- $100 million asset based loan facility of B1 (LGD 2; 13%)

The last rating action was on March 16, 2009 when the ratings of
ICG were lowered, including the CFR which was downgraded to Caa2
from Caa1.

International Coal Group, Inc., operates 13 coal mining complexes
(8 in Central Appalachia, 4 in Northern Appalachia, and 1 in the
Illinois Basin).  ICG owns approximately two-thirds of its
1.0 billion tons of coal reserves.  The company produced
approximately 16.3 million tons of coal in 2009.


INTERNATIONAL LEASE: Fitch Rates Issuer Default Rating at 'BB'
--------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings expects to rate International Lease Finance Corp.'s
$750 million secured term loan 'BBB-'.  This instrument will be
placed on Rating Watch Negative when issued to align its Watch
status with that of issuer ILFC.

The senior secured term loan is rated two notches above ILFC's
long-term Issuer Default Rating of 'BB.' This reflects a
combination of superior collateral coverage and structural
protection.  Collateral consists of a perfected security interest
in 43 aircraft registered in countries that have ratified the Cape
Town Convention.  Based on the estimated value of the aircraft,
the loan-to-value for this transaction will equal approximately
56% at closing.  ILFC will be required to maintain a maximum 63%
loan-to-value on an ongoing, quarterly basis.  Structural
protection also includes aircraft and lessee concentration limits.

The rating action taken does not affect the existing IDRs and debt
ratings of issuer ILFC.  On Feb. 18, 2010, Fitch downgraded ILFC's
IDR and senior unsecured debt to 'BB' from 'BBB' and retained both
the IDR and debt ratings on Rating Watch Negative.  The February
rating action reflected Fitch's concern that ultimate parent AIG's
willingness to extend support to ILFC may be more limited than
previously assumed and may not extend beyond ILFC's efforts to
restructure and generate liquidity to repay forthcoming maturing
debt obligations.

Resolution of the Rating Watch will primarily reflect ILFC's
ability to resolve substantial near-term funding pressure by
generating sufficient liquidity through aircraft sales, extension
or amendment of the current bank facilities, and procurement of
third-party secured debt financing to satisfy near-term funding
obligations and minimize the likelihood for further support from
AIG.

Furthermore, although the volume of unencumbered aircraft remains
adequate to support repayment of unsecured debt, Fitch remains
concerned that significant further encumbrance of the aircraft
portfolio, either via indirect government support or third-party
secured financing, may effectively result in subordination of
existing unsecured bondholders.  This could potentially result in
downward notching of the senior unsecured debt rating.

Fitch expects to assign this rating, and to place the rated
securities on Rating Watch Negative:

International Lease Finance Corporation

  -- Senior secured debt 'BBB'.


INTERPUBLIC GROUP: S&P Gives Positive Outlook; Affirms 'B+' Rating
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its rating outlook on
New York City-based Interpublic Group of Companies Inc. to
positive from stable.  S&P affirmed its existing ratings on the
company, including the 'B+' corporate credit rating.

"The outlook revision reflects S&P's expectation that Interpublic
should be able to reduce leverage modestly, primarily in the
second half of the year, and regain some of the margin expansion
it has ceded over the past 12 months," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Heather Goodchild.

S&P's view incorporates the assumption that advertising and
marketing services spending will remain under pressure, albeit
decreasing pressure, during the first half of 2010.  S&P believes
the company could meet its goal of achieving 2008 profitability
levels in 2010, even with flat organic revenue (management's
current outlook), if Interpublic doesn't continue to incur
significant severance expenses.  Separately, the company has
improved its overall liquidity over the past year.

Interpublic recently obtained an amendment from its banks to
accommodate covenant pressure caused by near-term operating
softness and higher-than-expected severance expense.  S&P expects
that headroom could become very slim when the leverage covenant
tightens at June 30, 2010.  Still, it is S&P's view that the
company's strong liquid resources (including $2.5 billion in cash
as of Dec. 31, 2009), ability to buy in term debt, and likely
ability to obtain a waiver mitigate this concern.  Interpublic has
not historically drawn on its committed facilities and only uses
them for letters of credit.  It recently moved the majority of
outstanding LOCs to its new ?45 million credit facility.

The 'B+' rating on Interpublic reflects continued near-term
cyclical pressure on organic revenue trends, the hurdles that the
industry faces in reducing operating costs in line with revenue
declines, ongoing weakness in certain key industries (such as auto
and technology), and lower EBITDA margins and cash generation than
comparable peers'.  Interpublic's broad business mix of
traditional advertising and marketing services, progress with
business wins since 2007, and very strong cash balances are
positive considerations in the rating that do not offset the
negative factors.

Balance sheet debt to EBITDA was 3.4x at Dec. 31, 2009, compared
with 2.5x at year-end 2008.  Lease- and pension-adjusted debt to
EBITDA (including preferred stock, acquisition-related puts and
calls, and the present value of acquisition-related earn-outs) was
significantly higher, at 6.0x.  S&P view further organic revenue
contraction as likely, with the potential to push leverage
slightly higher in the first quarter of 2010.  S&P believes that
leverage could start to come down in the second half of the year,
and could further benefit if the company decides to repay the
maturity of its floating-rate notes in November 2010 with excess
cash.  Lease- and-pension-adjusted EBITDA coverage of interest and
preferred dividends was 2.3x as of Dec. 31, 2009, down from 2.6x
in 2008.

The company converted a healthy 74% of EBITDA to discretionary
cash flow for 2009, due to good working capital management and
significantly reduced capital expenditures.  Capital spending was
less than 12% of EBITDA, compared to 16.4% in 2008.  Absolute
discretionary cash flow was down about 38% for the year, but S&P
expects it to improve modestly in 2010.


JAPAN AIRLINES: Ends Cargo Business Merger Talks With NYK
---------------------------------------------------------
The JAL Group announced that it ended negotiations with Nippon
Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK) on cargo business reform involving a
possible merger between Japan Airlines International (JAL), the
key subsidiary of Japan Airlines and NYK subsidiary, Nippon Cargo
Airlines (NCA).

The commencement of negotiations involving the restructuring of
cargo business operated by JAL and NCA was announced in August
2009, and the feasibility of a potential merger between the cargo
business of JAL and NCA was being analyzed.  Both parties have
reached an amicable conclusion to end the negotiations because the
structure of the merger could not be organized within the scope of
the agreement between JAL and NYK.

Nevertheless, JAL and NCA will continue their existing business
relationships including operating code-sharing flights and
coordinating ground handling activities.  Both companies will
maintain close communications in their current business
partnership, and will be open to discussions about any possible
cooperation in the future.

"JAL's strong relationship with Nippon Yusen remains unchanged as
we reach a common understanding to halt discussions about the
merger.  We intend to maintain mutually-beneficial business
activities with NCA including the current code share flights, and
preserve the cooperation that we have already established," said
JAL Group Chief Operating Officer and President, Masaru Onishi.
"Demand for air cargo business typically fluctuates with the
economy.  Considering future growth in the segment, JAL will
include strategies for our cargo business in the JAL
Reorganization Plan."

JAPAN AIRLINES: Widens Operating Loss to JPY120.8-Bil. for 3Qs
--------------------------------------------------------------
The JAL Group released consolidated results for the first three
quarters (April - December inclusive) of fiscal year 2009.

Japan Airlines Corporation, Japan Airlines International Co.,
Ltd., and JAL Capital Co., Ltd., filed on January 19, 2010, an
application to the Enterprise Turnaround Initiative Corporation of
Japan (ETIC) for support for its restructuring and also filed for
petitions with the Tokyo District Court (the Court) for
commencement of corporate reorganization proceedings.  JAL
received the decision from ETIC that it will provide support and
on the same day, the Court entered an order commencing the
proceedings.

JAL recognizes and is deeply apologetic for the current situation
that has caused great inconvenience and concern to our
shareholders, financial creditors, customers, suppliers and other
related parties.  Now, JAL is working fervently with the ETIC
under the supervision of the court and court-appointed trustees
(Trustees) to draw up an effective corporate revitalization plan
to rebuild the airline, while continuing to provide safe and
stable flight operations and services to customers.  The JAL Group
will stand united in our efforts to strive towards achieving a
successful reform.

The consolidated operating revenue for this reporting period
decreased by 414.4 billion yen compared to that of last year.  On
the other hand, operating expense was substantially reduced in
almost every cost category, achieving a 302.5 billion yen decrease
from the same period last year to 1,265.6 billion yen.  Operating
loss widened by 111.9 billion yen to 120.8 billion yen while
ordinary loss increased by 127.7 billion yen to 153.3 billion.
The resulting net loss for this reporting period is 177.9 billion
yen, 176 billion yen more than previous year.

The consolidated financial statements for this reporting term were
prepared on the going concern assumption, where the effects of
substantial uncertainties related to the going concern assumption
are not reflected in this report.  Abiding by Section 83, Part 1
and 3 of the Japanese Corporate Rehabilitation Law, the Group's
assets are now being evaluated by the Trustees based on current
market values.  Japan Airlines Corporation, Japan Airlines
International Co., Ltd., and JAL Capital Co., Ltd., are now
operating under the Corporate Reorganization Proceedings and thus,
their accounting term, as well as that used by  the JAL Group for
its consolidated financial report formally ended on January 19,
2010*.

*The fiscal period (April 1 to March 31) of other individual Group
companies remain unchanged.

KINDER MORGAN: Fitch Affirms NGPL'S Issuer Default & Debt Ratings
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed the Issuer Default Rating and
outstanding senior unsecured debt ratings for NGPL PipeCo LLC at
'BBB-'.  The Rating Outlook is Stable.  The rating action affects
$3 billion of outstanding debt.  NGPL is 80% owned by Myria
Acquisition Inc. , a consortium of investors including Prime
Infrastructure Group, a Canadian pension fund and a Netherlands
pension fund and 20% owned by Kinder Morgan, Inc. (IDR 'BB+',
Stable Outlook).

NGPL's ratings and Stable Outlook reflect the predictable cash
flows generated by its Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
regulated pipeline assets, a favorable competitive market
position, limited liquidity needs and a conservative growth
strategy.  NGPL is one of the largest interstate pipeline and
storage systems in the U.S.  While the Chicago/Midwest market that
it delivers into is served by several competing pipelines, NGPL
boasts competitive rate structures and has been able to maintain
its strong market position.  Pipeline capacity is mostly committed
under contracts ranging from one to five years with an average
contract length of two years.  The average contract length is
relatively short.  However, NGPL has been able to limit capacity
re-contracting risk and generally maintain its revenues from
contract rollovers.  In addition, NGPL's position is enhanced by
its access to diverse and resource-rich supply areas and
deliverability to a high quality, utility dominated customer base.

The ratings also consider several offsetting factors.  Most
significantly, in November 2009, NGPL was notified by FERC of a
proceeding against it under Section Five of the Natural Gas Act to
determine whether NGPL's current rates, which were approved by
FERC in NGPL's last rate case settlement, remain just and
reasonable.  In response, in February 2010, NGPL submitted cost
and revenue studies with FERC indicating it under-recovered its
cost of service for the 12 months period ended October 2009.
Resolution of the case may extend into 2011.  Fitch would consider
taking negative rating action against NGPL should its projected
revenues be materially lowered because of the FERC rate case.

Based on Fitch estimates, NGPL will continue to trend toward the
higher ranges of leverage for investment grade pipelines, with
debt/EBITDA expected to fall between 4.5 times and 5.0x over the
next several years.  In addition, NGPL exhibits some sensitivity
to commodity prices through its operational efficiency sales.  As
a result, absent the benefit of hedges, revenues would be expected
to decline in a softening natural gas price environment.  Finally,
as with other pipeline systems, NGPL is exposed to margin
deterioration as the U.S.  pipeline infrastructure continues to
evolve and natural gas supply, demand and price dynamics change.

MAGNA ENTERTAINMENT: Exclusive Solicitation Period Until April 30
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Michael Bathon at Bloomberg News reports that Magna Entertainment
Corp. won an extension until April 30 of its exclusive period to
propose and solicit acceptances of a Chapter 11 plan.

"The April 30 date is a very aggressive date considering the
regulatory approval needed" under the company's reorganization
plan submitted last month, William Ford, Magna's general counsel,
said to Michael G. Gallerizzo, attorney for creditor PNC Bank NA,
regarding questions about the target date for completing the
restructuring, Bloomberg's Michael Bathon reported.

PNC Bank had objected to the requested extension.  Magna had
earlier proposed an April 29 extension of its plan proposal period
and a June 29 extension of the solicitation period.

Magna Entertainment and its units will seek approval on March 23
of the disclosure statement explaining their proposed plan of
reorganization.  Magna will be able to commence soliciting votes
on, then seek confirmation of the Plan, following approval of the
Disclosure Statement.

MI Developments Inc. and the Official Committee of Unsecured
Creditors of MEC serve as co-proponents of the Plan.

The backbone of the Plan is a settlement of the lawsuit commenced
by the Creditors Committee against, among others, MID and MEC. The
Creditors Committee had commenced an adversary proceeding against
MID Islandi sf., the Debtors' largest prepetition secured lender,
MI Developments Inc., Magna Entertainment's controlling
shareholder, and certain other third party defendants asserting,
among other things, claims of fraudulent transfer, equitable
subordination, recharacterization and breaches of fiduciary duty.

The plan proponents have entered into a Support Agreement pursuant
to which, among other things, MID and the Committee agreed to
support the Plan and MEC agreed to seek approval of the Disclosure
Statement in the Bankruptcy Court on or prior to March 31 and
obtain confirmation of the Plan by the Bankruptcy Court on or
prior to April 30.  The Support Agreement may be terminated if,
among other things, the Bankruptcy Court denies confirmation of
the Plan.

The Majestic Star Casino, LLC, and its units ask the Bankruptcy
Court to extend their exclusive period to propose a Chapter 11
plan until June 21 and their exclusive period to solicit
acceptances of that plan until August 19.

The official committee of unsecured creditors and the creditors
under the prepetition first lien obligations are not objecting to
the 90-day extension.

The Debtors own and operate four casino properties, two of which
are the Majestic Star I and Majestic Star II riverboat casinos
located at Buffington Harbor in Gar, Indiana.

Majestic Star says it has been engaged in negotiations regarding
the Indiana Gaming Commission's request for the Debtors to execute
a power of attorney authorizing IGC to appoint a trustee to
operate the licensed casinos in certain circumstances.  The
Debtors are required to submit the POA or face the possibility
that the IGC may not renew the Debtors' gaming licenses in 2010.

In addition, the Indiana Department of Transportation ordered a
stretch of elevated highway known as the Cline Avenue Bridge,
which is the primary roadway used by customers to access Majestic
Star I and II from the Chicago metropolitan area, to be closed due
to structural damage.  The unanticipated closure has resulted in a
decline in revenue at Majestic Star I and II.   As a result of
greater travel time to Majestic Star I and II, customers who once
patronized Majestic Star I and II may now elect to take their
business to a competitor that is more conveniently located.

To combat the unanticipated and indefinite closure of Cline
Avenue, the Debtors have recently instituted various and
aggressive marketing strategies.  However, since the new and
aggressive marketing strategies were just recently implemented, it
is unclear as to what portion of the lost revenues can be
recovered.

As of February 1, 2010, a total of 13 gaming-related bills were
pending in the Indiana General Assembly, and issues raised by one
bill in particular -- Senate Bill No. 405 -- could have a direct
and material impact on the Debtors' valuation of Majestic Star I
and II and the gaming licenses associated therewith.  One version
would allow the Debtors to exchange two riverboat licenses for a
single land-based license without having to pay a $50 million
relocation fee.  The current legislative session in Indiana is
scheduled to end on March 14, 2010, at which time the Debtors will
be able to better assess the immediate impact, if any, of the
pending legislation on Majestic Star I and II.

MBIA INSURANCE: S&P Junks Preferred Stock Rating From 'B+'
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it lowered its ratings on
MBIA Insurance Corp.'s preferred stock to 'C' from 'B+' in light
of the announced deferral of dividends.

An increase in statutory loss reserves for MBIA in the fourth
quarter of 2009 resulted in negative earned surplus.  Under New
York State Insurance Department regulation, the company is
prohibited from paying dividends on its preferred stock while its
earned surplus is negative.

Standard & Poor's assigns a 'C' rating for types of nonpayment
that are permitted under the terms of the instrument to more
clearly distinguish these from cases that constitute events of
default, for which holders have specified remedies.

assets, including $18,090,000 in total current assets, against
$120,634,000 in total current liabilities and $17,736,000 in asset
retirement obligations.

The Company noted that its default under the debt agreements,
which has been mitigated in the short term by certain forbearance
agreements, negatively impacts future cash flow and the Company's
access to credit or other forms of capital.  There is substantial
doubt as to the Company's ability to continue as a going concern
for a period longer than the next 12 months, the Company said.
It added that it might have to seek protection under federal

agreements or if those agreements expire.


MESA AIR: Gets Nod to Enter Into Sec. 1110(a) Stipulations
----------------------------------------------------------
Mesa Air Group Inc. and its received approval from the Bankruptcy
Court to establish procedures authorizing them to perform
obligations and cure defaults pursuant to Section 1110(a) of the

The Debotrs currently maintain a fleet of approximately 178
aircraft.  Substantially all of the aircraft, related engines and
other equipment in the Debtors' fleet are subject to leases or
financing arrangements that may be subject to the provisions of
Section 1110 of the Bankruptcy Code.

According to Maria A. Bove, Esq., at Pachulski Stang Ziehl &
Jones LLP, in New York, the fleet is too large for the Debtors'
operations.  Approximately 52 aircraft are parked and not being
used.  In addition, over the next several months, the Debtors
plan to retire additional aircraft that are not needed to service
their customers.  By contrast, Ms. Bove relates that the Debtors
do not anticipate any reduction of the portion of their Fleet that
is CRJ-700s and CRJ-900s aircraft.

Various parties objection to the proposed Sec. 1110 procedures.
However, after extensive negotiations, the Debtors reached
agreement with 26 parties as to a modified form of order on the
Motion, whereby the Debtors undertake to take certain surrender
and return-related and other actions, while various material
rights of affected parties-in-interest to seek additional relief
or assert related claims against the Debtors are expressly
preserved.

The parties include the Official Committee of Unsecured
Creditors; GE Capital Aviation Services; Bank of Scotland, plc;
CIT Capital USA Inc.; Export Development Canada; Bombardier Inc.,
Bombardier Capital Inc. and Bombardier Services Corporation; Bank
of Hawaii; and United Airlines.

Among other things, the Debtors are authorized to agree to
perform all of their obligations under the relevant Aircraft
Agreements pursuant to Section 1110(a) of the Bankruptcy Code,
and to enter into agreements pursuant to Section 1110(b) of the
Bankruptcy Code to extend the 60-day period under Section
1110(a)(2).  All agreements pursuant to Section 1110(a) will be
immediately effective pursuant to the terms of this Order.  All

MESA AIR: Wants Waiver From Sec. 345 Rules for Mexico Accounts
--------------------------------------------------------------
Mesa Air, Inc., and its debtor affiliates seek a waiver from
Judge Martin Glenn of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of New York of the requirements of Section 345 of the
Bankruptcy Code solely with respect to their bank accounts
located in Mexico.

Michael J. Lotz, the Debtors' president, relates that the Debtors
maintain stations -- airport location staffed by their employees
-- in Mexico under their code share agreement with US Airways,
Inc.  The US Air code share agreement requires the Debtors to
operate and provide services in Mexico.

The Debtors established five bank accounts with two separate
banks in Mexico to collect revenues and pay related expenses.
Two of the Mexico Accounts are located at Banco Nacional de
Mexico S.A., and the other three accounts at Banco Mercantil del
Norte S.A.  The accounts are part of the Debtors' Cash Management
System.

Most of the Debtors' ticket sale proceeds derived from US Air-
related flights are deposited directly into a US Air-controlled
deposit account.  As a result, the Debtors' only source of
revenue or cash collection at its Mexico stations are de minimis
fees and taxes associated with employee guest flight passes,
which revenue is deposited into the Debtors' collection account
at Banco Nacional on a daily basis, Mr. Lotz informs the Court.

The average monthly balance of the Nacional Collection Account is
small, up to $4,000, and is swept into the Debtors' main
operating account on a manual basis when balance restrictions
permit the Debtors to transfer excess funds.  The Debtors sweep
the Nacional Collection Account every quarter, according to Mr.
Lotz.

Payroll and other routine expenses associated with the operation
of the Mexico stations are deducted from the Debtors'
disbursement account at Banco Nacional.  To fund the Nacional
Expense Account, the Debtors wire funds from the Main
Concentration Account to their dollar account at Banco Mercantil.

The amount varies from month to month but is generally
approximately $100,000 to $300,000.  The funds in the Mercantil
Dollar Account are converted to pesos and are deposited into the
Debtors' peso account at Banco Mercantil.  The funds in the
Mercantil Peso Account are transferred weekly to the Nacional
Expense Account in amounts necessary to fund the Debtors'
accounts payable.

The Mercantil Peso Account is also linked to an investment
account located at Banco Mercantil.  Excess funds in the
Mercantil Peso Account are swept into the Mexico Money Market
Account, which is an interest-bearing account, the rate of which
is determined by the investments made by Banco Mercantil.

According to Mr. Lotz, when funds are transferred from the Main
Concentration Account to the Mexico Accounts, the balances in the
Mexico Accounts are quickly reduced because the Debtors use the
funds to satisfy outstanding expenses due and payable.  As a
result, the Debtors generally keep less than $300,000 in the
Mexico Accounts for any significant period of time.

Mr. Lotz notes that under Mexican law, companies operating in
Mexico are required to obtain a tax identification number and
comply with various fiscal policies.  In addition, a settlement
of a company's accounts payable must be reconciled through a
Mexico-based bank.

The Debtors are also subject to certain taxes assessed by the
non-immigrant tax, the immigrations services tax, and the airport
facility fee, which cannot be satisfied from a transfer
originating in the United States, Mr. Lotz says.

It would not only be impracticable to close the Mexico Accounts
but also impossible, because the Debtors are continuing to
operate in Mexico, and must continue these operations under the
US Air code share agreement, Mr. Lotz tells the Court.  Moreover,
the funds in the Mexico Accounts are sufficiently secured by the
manner in which the Debtors utilize the accounts and the
protections afforded by Mexico's banking laws, he adds.

After the Motion was filed, the Debtors inquired as to whether
they could obtain a bond to secure the amounts on deposit in the
Mexico Accounts.  Unfortunately, the bonding agency informed the
Debtors that it would not issue a bond unless the Debtors posted
a cash deposit in the full amount of the bond in order to secure
the bonding agency's obligations, Mr. Lotz relates.

In addition to posting 100% of the amount of the bond collateral,
the Debtors would have to pay a bond fee as well as an additional
fee to establish and maintain a letter of credit in favor of the
bonding agency.  Mr. Lotz believes that tying up the estates'
cash, in the amount of 100% of the amounts on deposit to the
Mexico Accounts, in addition to payments of the bond fee and
letter of credit fee, is not in the estates' best interests,
especially given the de minimis amounts on deposit in the
Mexico Accounts, and given the existing protections that minimize
any risk of less funds deposited in the Mexico Accounts.

Milestone Scientific Inc. is engaged in pioneering proprietary,
highly innovative technological systems and solutions for the
medical and dental markets.  From its inception, the Company has
focused its energy and resources on redefining the global standard
of care for injection techniques by making the experience more
comfortable for the patient and by reducing the anxiety and stress
of giving injections for the healthcare provider.

As of September 30, 2009, the Company had total assets of
$3,900,447 against total current liabilities of $2,691,538 and
total long-term liabilities of $438,144, resulting in
stockholders' equity of $770,765.  At December 31, 2008,
stockholders' equity was $1,400,180.

                        Going Concern Doubt

In its Form 10-Q report for the September 30, 2009 quarterly
period, the Company said it has incurred operating losses and
negative cash flows from operating activities since its inception,
including a net loss of $1,591,454 and $1,275,735 for the nine
months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008, respectively.  At
September 30, 2009, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of
$497,455 and negative working capital of $406,968.  The working
capital is negative by the inclusion in current liabilities as of
September 30, 2009, of the $1,300,000 line of credit, due June 30,
2010.

The Company secured a revolving line of credit in the aggregate
amount of $1.3 million from a stockholder, which was fully
borrowed at December 31, 2008.  All borrowings and interest
thereon must be repaid by June 30, 2010, and after the expiration
date of the line, may be repaid by Milestone in cash or, at its
option, in shares of common stock.

The Company also borrowed $450,000 in 2008 from the same
shareholder, with an original due date of January 2009.  This
additional borrowing was refinanced at December 31, 2008, and the
due date was extended to June 30, 2012.

The Company said it is actively pursuing the generation of
positive cash flows from operating activities through an increase
in revenue based upon management's assessment of present contracts
and current negotiations and reductions in operating expenses.  If
the Company is unable to generate positive cash flows from its
operating activities, it will need to raise additional capital.
There is no assurance that the Company will be able to achieve
positive operating cash flows or that additional capital can be
raised on terms and conditions satisfactory to the Company, if at
all.  If additional capital is required and it cannot be raised,
then the Company would be forced to curtail its development
activities, reduce marketing expenses for existing dental products
or adopt other cost saving measures, any of which might negatively
affect the Company's operating results.

The Company said its recurring losses and negative operating cash
flows raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a
going concern.

MILLIPORE CORP: Acquisition Cues S&P to Cut Merck's Ratings
------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it lowered its long-
term corporate credit and senior unsecured debt ratings on
Germany-based pharmaceuticals and specialty chemicals producer
Merck KGaA to 'BBB+' from 'A-'.  At the same time, S&P affirmed
the short-term rating of 'A-2'.  The outlook is stable.

On Feb. 28, 2010, Merck announced that it will conduct a fully
debt-financed acquisition of the U.S.-based life science company
Millipore Corp. (BB+/Positive/--) for approximately
EUR5.3 billion.

"The rating action reflects that as a consequence of this
acquisition S&P anticipate that Merck's debt protection metrics
will be significantly weaker for the next three years and, as
such, no longer view them as commensurate with an 'A-' rating,"
said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Marketa Horkova.

Although the transaction will not materially affect the group's
already "strong" business risk profile, it will lower the Standard
& Poor's-adjusted ratio of FFO to debt to about 20% by the end of
2010, with an improvement to over 30% by the year end 2011.  As
such, Merck would more than exhaust its flexibility for the former
ratings.

Following the announced acquisition, S&P has revised Merck's
financial risk profile to "intermediate" from "modest", reflecting
management's greater willingness to incur additional debt and to
temporarily accept a more highly geared balance sheet.  The
group's cash-generation is likely to be strong in the next few
years: S&P anticipates the combined entity will generate free cash
flow before dividends and share buybacks of more than EUR1 billion
annually in the medium-term.  Despite this, the additional debt
related to the acquisition will, in S&P's view, weigh heavily on
Merck's credit metrics in the near future.

"The stable outlook assumes the continuous improvement of Merck's
credit protection measures such that they become commensurate with
the ratings.  This would entail the Standard & Poor's-adjusted
ratio of FFO to net debt reaching 30% in the coming years," said
Ms. Horkova.

It also reflects S&P's view that Merck's operating performance
will be able to withstand the adverse consumer environment by
capitalizing on its strong pharmaceuticals market position and the
enhanced cash flow generation capabilities of the combined group,
which should enable the group to deleverage significantly in the
future, provided that management is willing to do so.  However,
even small-to-midsize additional debt-financed acquisitions could
lead to a negative rating action.  Ratings upside currently
appears remote.

reflect a class action settlement in accordance with generally
accepted accounting principles.

MoneyGram on February 4, 2010, issued an earnings release

announced that it had entered into memoranda of understanding to
settle federal securities class and stockholder derivative actions
pending against it in the United States District Court for the

The memoranda of understanding revised the Company's estimate
regarding the probability that it had incurred a liability related
to the federal securities class and stockholder derivative actions
as of December 31, 2009, and provided a reasonable basis to
estimate that liability.

The Company said revised financial information will not be
available until it files its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the

the March 16, 2010 filing deadline.

MOUNTAIN 1ST BANK: Agrees to Consent Order by FDIC
--------------------------------------------------
Effective February 25, 2010, Mountain 1st Bank & Trust Company, a
wholly owned subsidiary of 1st Financial Services Corporation,
agreed to the issuance of a Consent Order with the Federal Deposit
Insurance Corporation and the North Carolina Commissioner of
Banks.

1st Financial said in a filing with the Securities and Exchange
Commission that the Consent Order was entered into and became
effective on February 25, 2010, and the Bank was notified of the
Order's effectiveness on March 1, 2010.

Mike Mayer, the recently appointed Chief Executive Officer of the
Company and the Bank, stated: "Our Board of Directors and
management team are united in our efforts to satisfy the
requirements of the Consent Order in the coming months.  We have
already fulfilled a number of the conditions for the release of
the Order. Our goal is to complete our return to good standing as
quickly as possible."

Mr. Mayer also said, "We continue to meet the applicable
regulatory capital requirements and we continue to meet the
banking needs of our customers and communities. We will not lose
our focus on achieving excellence in serving Western North
Carolina."

Although the Bank neither admitted nor denied any unsafe or
unsound banking practices or violations of law or regulation, it
agreed to the Consent Order, which requires it to undertake a
number of actions:

   * The Board of Directors of the Bank will enhance its
     supervision of the Bank's activities, including by increasing
     the formality of its meetings and appointing a special
     Directors' Committee.  The Committee will oversee the efforts
     of the Bank's management in complying with the Consent Order
     and will regularly report to the full Board.

   * The Bank Board will assess the Bank's management team to
     ensure that the Bank's executive officers have the skills,
     training, abilities and experience needed to cause the Bank
     to comply with the Consent Order, operate in a safe and sound
     manner, comply with applicable laws and regulations, and
     strengthen all areas of the Bank's operations that are not
     currently in compliance with the Consent Order.  The Board
     will also assess the Bank's management and staffing needs in
     order to determine if additional resources should be added to
     the management team.

   * During the effectiveness of the Consent Order, the Bank will
     maintain Tier 1 Capital of at least 8% of total assets, a
     Total Risk Based Capital Ratio of at least 12% and a fully
     funded allowance for loan and lease losses (the "allowance").

   * The Bank will develop and implement a plan for achieving and
     maintaining the foregoing capital levels, which plan may
     include sales of stock by the Company and contributions of
     the sales proceeds by the Company to the capital of the Bank.

   * The Board will strengthen the allowance policy of the Bank,
     periodically review the Bank's allowance to determine its
     adequacy and enhance its periodic reviews of the allowance to
     ensure its continuing adequacy. Deficiencies noted will be
     promptly remedied by charges to earnings.  In addition, the
     allowance has been increased as required by the Consent
     Order.

   * The Bank will develop and implement a strategic plan covering
     at least three years and containing long-term goals designed
     to improve the condition of the Bank.

   * The Bank charged off all of its assets (loans) classified
     "Loss" and 50% of its assets (loans) classified "Doubtful"
     promptly following the effectiveness of the Consent Order.
     The Bank anticipates that the remainder of the "Doubtful"
     assets (loans) will be charged off during the remainder of
     2010.

   * The Bank will not extend additional credit to any borrower
     who had a loan with the Bank that was charged off or who has
     a current loan that is classified "Loss" or "Doubtful".  The
     Bank also will not extend additional credit to any borrower
     who has a current loan that is classified "Substandard" or
     listed for "Special Mention." A further extension of credit
     may be made to a borrower with a "Substandard" or "Special
     Mention" loan if the Bank Board determines such extension
     would be in the best interests of the Bank.

   * The Bank will formulate a detailed plan to collect, charge
     off or improve the quality of each of its "Substandard" or
     "Doubtful" loans as of August 31, 2009, of more than $250,000
     and will promptly implement the plan. The Board will closely
     monitor the Bank's progress in fulfilling the requirements of
     this plan.

   * The Bank will reduce loans in excess of $250,000 and
     classified as "Substandard" or "Doubtful" in accordance with
     a schedule required by the supervisory authorities.  The
     schedule targets an aggregate reduction by 75% within 720
     days of the effectiveness of the Consent Order.  The Board
     will monitor this effort on a monthly basis.

   * The Bank will cause full implementation of its loan
     underwriting, loan administration, loan documentation and
     loan portfolio management policies within 90 days of the
     effectiveness of the Consent Order.

   * The Bank will adopt a loan review and grading system within
     90 days of the Consent Order to provide for effective
     periodic reviews of the Bank's loan portfolio.  The system
     will address, among other things, loan grading standards,
     loan categorization, and credit risk analyses.

   * Within 30 days of the effectiveness of the Consent Order, the
     Bank will develop a plan to systematically reduce the
     concentration of a significant portion of its extensions of
     credit in a limited group of borrowers.  Additionally, the
     Bank will prepare a risk segmentation analysis with respect
     to certain real estate industry concentrations of credit
     identified by the supervisory authorities.

   * The Bank will enhance its review of its liquidity by engaging
     in monthly analyses. It will also develop and implement a
     liquidity contingency and asset/liability management plan.

   * Within 90 days from the effectiveness of the Consent Order,
     the Bank will implement a plan and 2010 budget designed to
     improve its net interest margin, increase interest income,
     reduce expenditures and improve and sustain earnings.

   * The Bank will implement internal routine and control policies
     addressing concerns raised by its supervisory authorities and
     designed to enhance its safe and sound operation.

   * Within 90 days of the Consent Order, the Bank will implement
     a comprehensive internal audit program and cause an effective
     system of internal and external audits to be in place.

   * The Bank will implement a policy for managing its "owned real
     estate".

   * The Bank will forebear from soliciting and accepting
     "brokered deposits" unless it first receives an appropriate
     waiver from the FDIC; and will comply with restrictions
     issued by the FDIC on the effective yields of deposit
     products offered by, among others, banks subject to consent
     orders.

   * A limit upon growth of 10% per year will be observed by the
     Bank.

   * The Bank will not pay dividends or make other forms of
     payment reducing capital to the Company without the prior
     approval of the supervisory authorities while the Consent
     Order is in effect.

   * The Bank will implement policies to enhance the Board's focus
     on conflicts of interest regulations and its handling of
     transactions with officers and directors.

   * The Bank will correct any violations of laws and regulations
     identified by the supervisory authorities.

   * The Bank will make quarterly progress reports to the
     supervisory authorities detailing the form and manner of
     actions taken to comply with the Consent Order.

The plans, policies and procedures which the Bank is required to
prepare under the Consent Order are subject to approval by the
supervisory authorities before implementation.

                       Allowance for Losses

The Bank said it intends to increase the Allowance for Loan Losses
by approximately $11 million for the 4th quarter of 2009.  This
increase in the ALLL is the result of an exhaustive internal and
external loan review process coupled with the implementation of
new, automated loan loss software.  This software will now allow
the Bank to continuously update its allowance and provide prompt,
accurate measurement and guidance of the loan portfolio moving
forward.  Said Mr. Mayer, "As we continued to analyze our loan
portfolio, we felt it important to not only update our internal
capabilities for reviewing our portfolio, but to also engage Risk
Management Group to provide an independent third party review.
Both of these reviews led us to the same decision to increase our
loan loss allowance to cushion against any potential further
deterioration in the loan portfolio."  With the increase, the Bank
will now have an ALLL of over $28 million against approximately
$34 million in non-performing loans at December 31, 2009.

MOVIE GALLERY: To Close Rochester and Cranberry Video Stores
------------------------------------------------------------
According TradingMarkets.com, Movie Gallery Inc. said it is having
a going-out-business sales at its Hollywood Video stores in East
Rochester and Cranberry Township as part of the company's Chapter
11 bankruptcy reorganization.  The closing of the stores will take
place within four to six weeks.

                        About Movie Gallery

Based in Wilsonville, Ore., Movie Gallery, Inc. is the second
largest North American video and game rental company, operating

MSCI INC: Moody's Affirms Corporate Family Rating at 'Ba2'
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed the Ba2 Corporate Family Rating
and debt instrument ratings of MSCI, Inc. and changed the rating
outlook to developing from positive.  Moody's also affirmed the
Ba3 Corporate Family Rating and debt instrument ratings of
RiskMetrics Group Holdings LLC.  RiskMetrics' rating outlook
remains positive.

These rating actions followed MSCI's announcement that it entered
into a definitive merger agreement whereby it will acquire
RiskMetrics Group, Inc.'s outstanding common equity in a cash and
stock transaction for total consideration of approximately
$1.55 billion.  The existing secured debt of both MSCI and
RiskMetrics is expected to be repaid in connection with the
acquisition.  The transaction is expected to be funded with
existing cash of MSCI and RiskMetrics, newly issued common stock
of MSCI and $1.275 billion of new secured debt.  The transaction
is subject to customary closing conditions, including approval by
the shareholders of RiskMetrics Group, Inc., the receipt by MSCI
of the proceeds of the debt financing for the transaction,
antitrust clearance and other customary regulatory approvals.  The
transaction is currently expected to close in MSCI's third fiscal
quarter of 2010.

MSCI has received a commitment letter from Morgan Stanley Senior
Funding, Inc., for senior secured credit facilities aggregating up
to $1.375 billion, which would be available, subject to customary
conditions, to fund the cash consideration in the acquisition, the
refinancing of existing senior secured credit facilities of MSCI
and RiskMetrics, and the ongoing working capital needs of MSCI and
its subsidiaries following the transaction.

The transaction is expected to materially increase MSCI's
leverage.  Debt to EBITDA would increase from 2.2 times at
November 30, 2009, to approximately 4.5 times on a pro forma basis
for the acquisition (pre-synergies but after Moody's standard
adjustment for operating leases).  Pro forma for management's
estimate of $50 million of cost savings, leverage would be just
under 4 times.  MSCI's financial strength metrics were very strong
for the rating category prior to the acquisition and are expected
to remain adequate for the Ba2 rating category after the
acquisition.  The acquisition of RiskMetrics significantly
increases MSCI's scale, product line and geographic
diversification.  Moody's will evaluate the expected financial
policies, capital structure and operating strategies of MSCI upon
completion the acquisition.  The developing outlook anticipates
that the Ba2 CFR of MSCI will remain unchanged upon the completion
of Moody's evaluation but that the rating outlook could be changed
to positive or stable.

If the transaction closes and all of the rated debt of RiskMetrics
is repaid, Moody's will withdraw all of the ratings of
RiskMetrics.  RiskMetrics Ba3 CFR and positive outlook continue to
reflect its solid standalone credit profile characterized by
leading market, strong credit metrics, a very good liquidity
profile and a stable, subscription-based business model.

These ratings of MSCI were affirmed:

* Corporate Family Rating, Ba2
* Probability of Default Rating, Ba3
* $75 million secured revolving credit facility, Ba2 (LGD 2, 29%)
* $380 million secured term loan, Ba2 (LGD 2, 29%)
* Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, SGL-1

These ratings of RiskMetrics were affirmed:

* Corporate Family Rating, Ba3
* Probability of Default rating, B1
* $25 million first lien revolver, Ba3 (LGD 3, 33%)
* $288 million first lien term loan, Ba3 (LGD 3, 33%)

The last rating action on MSCI was on October 13, 2009, when
Moody's affirmed the Ba2 Corporate Family Rating of MSCI and
changed the rating outlook to positive from stable.  The last
rating action on RiskMetrics was on January 29, 2009, when Moody's
affirmed the Ba3 Corporate Family Rating of RiskMetrics and
changed the rating outlook to positive from stable.

for the year ended December 31, 2009, were approximately
$303 million.


MSCI INC: S&P Puts 'BB' Corp. Rating on CreditWatch Negative
------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it placed its ratings,
including the 'BB' corporate credit rating, on New York City-based
risk analytics company MSCI Inc. on CreditWatch with negative
implications.  This action follows the company's announcement
earlier that it has agreed to acquire New York City-based
RiskMetrics Group Holdings LLC (BB-/Stable/--) for a combination
of debt and stock totaling about $1.6 billion.

"While S&P believes that the combination of the these two
companies will improve MSCI's scale and product mix through
increased diversity and a higher recurring revenue percentage,"
said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Joseph Spence, "the
transaction will also increase overall leverage given the
significant expected debt component."  As currently proposed the
transaction will include a $1.275 billion senior secured term loan
and a $100 million revolving credit facility, anticipated to be
undrawn at close.  S&P expects adjusted pro forma leverage to be
in the 4x area.  Depending on MSCI's post-transaction financial
policy and growth strategy, a potential downgrade is most likely
to be limited to one notch on the corporate credit rating.  In
addition, MSCI expects to use a portion of the proceeds and
combined cash balance to pay off both RiskMetrics' and its own
existing debt, after which S&P would withdraw both companies'
existing issue-level ratings, as well as RiskMetrics' corporate
credit rating.

S&P plans to meet with MSCI's management to review the company's
proposed financing for the transaction, cost synergies, financial
policy, and its strategy to merge RiskMetrics into MSCI's
operations, to resolve the CreditWatch.


MSGI SECURITY: Reports $2,921,200 Net Loss for Dec. 31 Quarter
--------------------------------------------------------------
MSGI Security Solutions, Inc., reported a net loss of $2,921,200
for the three months ended December 31, 2009, from a net loss of
$5,116,820 for the 2008 quarter.  The Company posted a net loss of
$6,170,136 for the six months ended December 31, 2009, from a net
loss of $5,513,814 for the same period in 2008.

The Company has not recorded any revenue for the 2009 and 2008
quarterly periods.

At December 31, 2009, the Company had total assets of $1,686,924
against total liabilities, all current, of $18,153,452, resulting
in stockholders' deficit of $16,466,528.

During the six-month period ended December 31, 2009, the Company
received net proceeds of $586,000 from a certain corporate
officer, which has no stated interest rate or maturity date.  It
is expected that the certain corporate officer will provide
further cash advances to the Company through the three month
period to end March 31, 2010, but that the advances will end upon
any successful funding event or transaction completed by the
Company.

In July 2009, the Company executed a NASA Funding Promissory Note
in the amount of $240,004 with a lender who also holds a
promissory note from December 2007. The new promissory note was
executed to enable the Company to meet its obligations under a
certain Space Act Agreement, which had been entered into with The
National Aeronautics and Space Administration.  The note bears
interest at 25% and matured on August 30, 2009.  In addition, the
Company was obligated to issue 500,000 shares of common stock to
the lender as additional consideration to enter into the note
agreement.  The shares were issued to the lender in September
2009.  The principal balance and accrued interest has not yet been
paid to the lender.  Although the note is technically in default,
the lender has not made any claim of default and the Company is
currently in negotiations with the lender for an extension to the
terms of the note.  There can be no assurance that the Company
will be successful in securing any extension to the note.

The Company currently has limited capital resources, has incurred
significant historical losses and negative cash flows from
operations and has no current period revenues.  At December 31,
2009, the Company had $1,188 in cash and no accounts receivable.
The Company believes that funds on hand combined with funds that
will be available from its various operations will not be adequate
to finance its operations requirements and enable the Company to
meet any of its financial obligations, including its payments
under convertible notes and promissory notes for the next 12
months.

The Company has ceased its business relationship with both Hyunda1
Syscomm Corp. (Hyundai) and Apro Media Corp. (Apro or Apro Media)
and a legal action has been filed in the State of California
naming both, among others, as defendants.  There are no assurances
that any further capital raising transactions will be consummated.
Although certain financing related transactions have been
successfully closed, failure of the Company's operations to
generate sufficient future cash flow and failure to consummate the
Company's strategic transactions or raise additional financing
could have a material adverse effect on the Company's ability to
continue as a going concern and to achieve its business
objectives.

The Company said these conditions raise substantial doubt about
its ability to continue as a going concern.  If the Company is
unable to raise additional funds, it may be forced to further
reduce, or cease operations, liquidate assets, renegotiate terms
with lenders and others of which there can be no assurance of
success, or file for bankruptcy protection.

MUSICLAND HOLDING: Profit Data Irrelevant in Best Buy Suit
----------------------------------------------------------
WestLaw reports that whether, following the sale of a corporate
debtor, its individual creditors continued to profit by doing
business with the company while it was under new ownership was
utterly irrelevant to whether the debtor's officers and directors
breached the fiduciary duties that they owed to the debtor under
Delaware law by allowing the sale to proceed.  Thus, officers and
directors were not entitled to discovery regarding corporate
creditors' post-sale profits on the theory that this discovery was
relevant to the breach-of-fiduciary-duty claims against them.
Under Delaware law, while corporate directors had to consider the
interests of corporate creditors as the corporation descended into
insolvency, they still owed their fiduciary duties to the
corporation and had to maximize the value of the company for the
benefit, inter alia, of the entire creditor constituency.  They
did not have a right or duty to keep the company on life support
so that specific corporate creditors would continue to have a
customer.  In re Musicland Holding Corp., --- B.R. ----, 2010 WL

NATIONAL HOME: Has Access to Cash Collateral Until April 5
----------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Ben T. Barry of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western
District of Arkansas approved a stipulation authorizing National
Home Centers, Inc. to access cash collateral of prepetition
secured lenders until April 5, 2010.

In the absence of a written agreement to the cash collateral, a
hearing on the Debtor's continued access to cash collateral will
be held on April 14, 2010, at 1:00 p.m. (CST) at Fayetteville
Division.  Objections will also accommodated on the hearing date.

Pursuant to the stipulation, the parties agreed that:

   -- the Debtor will use the prepetition secured lenders cash
      collateral to fund its Chapter 11 case, pay suppliers and
      other parties; and

   -- adequate protection payments be made to Liberty Bank during
      the term of the fifth cash collateral.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on January 29, 2010,
JPMorgan Chase Bank, as lender and agent for financial institution
The CIT Group/Business Credit, Inc., provided a prepetition
credit facility to the Debtor.  As of the petition date, the
principal amount owed to the secured lenders under the credit
agreement dated August 12, 2004, is approximately $11,808,000.
The value of the collateral securing the debt as of the petition
date is $32,456,706.  The value of the collateral upon which the
secured lenders would lend was $15,756,135, excluding the value of
real estate.

As adequate protection for any diminution in value of the lenders'
collateral, the Debtors will grant the prepetition lenders
replacement liens, subject to carve out.

NEENAH PAPER: Moody's Reviews 'B1' Corporate Family Rating
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service placed all the ratings of Neenah Paper
Inc on review for possible upgrade.  This action follows Neenah's
announcement that it has signed a definitive agreement to sell its
remaining 475,000 acres of timberlands in Nova Scotia for
C$82.5 million.  The transaction is expected to close before
March 31, 2010, and the company intends to use the proceeds to pay
down debt.

The review for possible upgrade will focus on Neenah's post-
redemption capital structure, liquidity profile, business
conditions, and the company's expected run rate (excluding
stumpage fees currently earned by the timberlands).  The outcome
of Moody's review is likely to result in either: (i) a one notch
upgrade in the Corporate Family Rating to Ba3 from B1, or (ii) the
affirmation of the B1 CFR with a positive outlook.  The rating on
the senior notes is anticipated to remain one notch below the CFR
in either scenario.

Moody's placed these ratings on review for possible upgrade:

* Corporate Family Rating, B1
* Probability of Default Rating, B1
* Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, SGL-3
* $225 million 7.375% senior notes due November 2014, B2

The last rating action occurred on November 18, 2009, when Moody's
affirmed all of Neenah's ratings, including the B1 CFR.

Neenah Paper is a global manufacturer of premium, performance-
based papers and specialty products used in a variety of
applications including filtration, printing and writing, and as
backing and component materials for many specialized industrial
and consumer applications.  Based in Alpharetta, Georgia, the
company currently has paper operations in the US and Germany and
timberlands in Nova Scotia, Canada.  Revenues for the year ended
December 31, 2009, were $574 million.


NEENAH PAPER: S&P Puts 'B+' Rating on CreditWatch Positive
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its ratings, including
the 'B+' corporate credit rating on Alpharetta, Ga.-based Neenah
Paper Inc. on CreditWatch with positive implications.

"The CreditWatch placement reflects S&P's view that Neenah's
financial risk profile may be more consistent with a higher rating
because of the company's plan to reduce debt with proceeds from
the sale of the timberlands," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Andy Sookram.  Following about $45 million of debt
reduction in 2009 from generated cash flows, Neenah's total
adjusted debt should be about $340 million after the sale is
completed.  As a result, S&P believes debt to 2009 EBITDA will
improve to around 4.5x from about 5.5x at Dec. 31, 2009.  S&P also
expects that Neenah's operating performance will likely improve
during the next few quarters because of a recovery in market
demand due to better economic conditions and higher prices.
Specifically, S&P expects EBITDA of about $80 million in 2010,
which combined with the expected debt reduction, will lead to
improved credit measures.  S&P thinks interest coverage could
strengthen to nearly 4x at Dec. 31, 2010, from 3x at Dec. 31,
2009, and debt to EBITDA decline to 4x area at year-end 2010,
which are levels that S&P consider to be appropriate for a higher
rating.

In addition, S&P expects the company will use a portion of the
sale proceeds to repay outstanding balances under the revolving
credit facility, leaving about $12 million available based on
S&P's estimation.  As a result, S&P thinks Neenah's liquidity will
improve in the near term.  In S&P's view, the debt paydown should
also result in increased cushion under the minimum fixed-charge
coverage covenant of 1x that is tested when availability falls
below $20 million.

Neenah produces specialty fine papers and technical products that
are used in a variety of application such as printing and writing,
filtration, tapes, and backing.

In resolving its CreditWatch listing, S&P will focus on
management's near- and intermediate business and financial
strategies, including growth objectives and financial policies.
If S&P believes an upgrade is warranted, it would likely be
limited to one notch.


NEW UNITED MOTOR: PBGC Assumes Underfunded Pension Plan
-------------------------------------------------------
The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation will take responsibility
for the underfunded pension plan covering more than 5,800
employees and retirees of New United Motor Manufacturing Inc.
(NUMMI), the vehicle assembler owned jointly by Toyota Motor Corp.
and Motors Liquidation Corp., the liquidating entity that remained
after General Motors emerged from bankruptcy.

The pension insurer's move comes as NUMMI prepares to end
production at its Fremont, Calif., assembly plant on March 31,
2010.  The PBGC has determined the plan will be abandoned as a
result and unable to pay benefits when due.

The New United Motor Manufacturing Inc. / UAW Hourly Defined
Benefit Pension Plan is 55% funded, with assets of $161 million to
cover benefit liabilities of $292 million, according to PBGC
estimates. The agency expects to cover $126 million of the
$131 million shortfall.

Until the PBGC becomes trustee of the pension plan, the plan will
remain ongoing under company sponsorship. The agency will send
notification letters to all plan participants when it becomes
trustee.

The PBGC will take over the assets and use insurance funds to pay
guaranteed benefits earned under the plan, which ends effective
March 3, 2010.  Retirees and beneficiaries will continue to
receive their monthly benefit checks without interruption, and
other participants will receive their pensions when they are
eligible to retire.

Under federal pension law, the maximum guaranteed pension at age
65 for participants in plans that terminate in 2010 is $54,000 a
year. The maximum guaranteed amount is lower for those who retire
earlier or elect survivor benefits. In addition, certain early
retirement subsidies and benefit increases made within the past
five years may not be fully guaranteed. A preliminary PBGC
analysis of the NUMMI pension plan indicates few current retirees
will see reductions to their monthly benefit.

Workers and retirees with questions may consult the PBGC Web site,
http://www.pbgc.gov/or call toll-free at 1-800-400-7242. For
TTY/TDD users, call the federal relay service toll-free at 1-800-
877-8339 and ask for 800-400-7242.

NUMMI retirees who draw a benefit from the PBGC may be eligible
for the federal Health Coverage Tax Credit. Further information
may be found on the PBGC Web site at http://www.pbgc.gov/workers-
retirees/benefits-information/content/page13692.html

Assumption of the plan's unfunded liabilities will have no
significant effect on the PBGC's financial statements because the
claim was previously included in the agency's fiscal year 2009
financial statements, in accordance with generally accepted
accounting principles.

NUMMI was formed in 1983 by Toyota and General Motors, each with a
50 percent equity interest in the enterprise.  When GM emerged
from bankruptcy reorganization last year, it left its interest in
NUMMI with the old GM bankrupt estate, a liquidating corporate
shell known as Motors Liquidation Corp.  Toyota is the remaining
active shareholder in NUMMI.

The PBGC is a federal corporation created under the ERISA. It
currently guarantees payment of basic pension benefits earned by
44 million American workers and retirees participating in over
29,000 private-sector defined benefit pension plans. The agency
receives no funds from general tax revenues. Operations are
financed largely by insurance premiums paid by companies that
sponsor pension plans and by investment returns.

NILE THERAPEUTICS: Form 10-K Has "Going Concern" Qualification
--------------------------------------------------------------
Nile Therapeutics, Inc., on March 3 announced its fourth quarter
and full year financial results for 2009.  For the fourth quarter
of 2009, Nile reported a net operating loss of $1.6 million, or
$0.06 per share.  For the full year, net operating loss was $7.9
million, or $0.31 per share.  Weighted-average shares outstanding
for the quarter and the year ended December 31, 2008 were 27.0 and
24.5 million, respectively.  Nile reported no revenue during the
quarter and the year ended December 31, 2009.

As of December 31, 2009, Nile had cash and cash equivalents of
$3.2 million compared to $5.5 million as of December 31, 2008.
Cash and cash equivalents decreased $2.3 million in the year ended
December 31, 2009; $5.8 million was used for operations, and $3.5
million was raised through a private placement of stock and the
exercise of stock options and warrants.

Nile also announced that the audit report included in its Annual
Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2009 expresses
an unqualified audit opinion from its independent registered
public accounting firm, Crowe Horwath LLP, but contains an
explanatory paragraph relating to the company's ability to
continue as a going concern.  This announcement is being made
pursuant to Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 4350(b)(1)(B), which requires
separate disclosure of the receipt of a going concern
qualification.

                      Update on CD-NP Program

During 2009 Nile made progress in the clinical development of CD-
NP for the treatment of patients with acute heart failure. In July
2009, the first patient was dosed in a single-blind, placebo-
controlled Phase II clinical trial designed to provide additional
information on the safety and tolerability of CD-NP when infused
for up to 72 hours in patients with acute heart failure and renal
function insufficiency.  Additionally, the study contains several
exploratory efficacy endpoints to provide insight into the
potential for CD-NP to enhance renal function in acute heart
failure patients.  Nile initially planned to enroll up to 40
patients in the study.

As of March 1, 2010, 30 subjects have completed dosing in study.
At the end of 2009, Nile submitted a protocol amendment to enable
the company to add up to three additional cohorts of patients,
which increases potential enrollment in the study to a total of
approximately 75 patients.  Interim top-line safety data from the
on-going Phase II study suggests that CD-NP is well-tolerated at
doses of 1.25 and 2.5 ng/kg/min.  Nile expect full results from
the expanded study to be available in the second half of 2010.
Following analysis of the ongoing Phase II data and subject to
such data, the company expects to initiate a Phase IIb dose-
ranging, placebo-controlled, double-blind study in acute heart
failure patients.

                         Conference Call

The Company will host a conference call and live webcast to
discuss these financial results and provide an update on each of
its development programs at 8:30 a.m. EST on March 5, 2010.

NORTEL NETWORKS: Generates US$2 Bil.+ in Completed Asset Sales
--------------------------------------------------------------
Nortel Networks Corporation issued an update on its creditor
protection proceedings in mid-February 2010.

In a company statement, Nortel noted that throughout the creditor
protection process, it has worked with its advisors and
stakeholders to conduct the sales of businesses and other
restructuring matters in a fair, efficient and responsible manner
in order to maximize value for its creditors, and in almost all
matters, resolution has been reached on a consensual basis.
These activities have been and continue to be monitored closely
by the courts, the court appointed Monitor in Canada, the U.K.
Joint Administrators, the U.S. Unsecured Creditors' Committee
(UCC), the Ad Hoc Bondholders Group and other creditor groups.

"The Board of Directors of Nortel and the management team
recognize the very difficult circumstances of the numerous and
varying stakeholders of Nortel.  We have been and continue to be
focused on maximizing the value of the Company's assets and
securing the best possible outcome for our creditors, from
employee groups to bondholders," Nortel Chairman David Richardson
related in a press release.  "The company continues to deal in
the most equitable way possible with its stakeholders as a whole,
while operating under creditor protection in Canada, the U.S.,
Europe and elsewhere."

Since determining in June 2009 that selling Nortel's businesses
was the best path forward, more than US$2 billion in net proceeds
have been generated through the completed sales of businesses.
Additional net proceeds of approximately US$1 billion are
expected upon the completion of the previously announced sales of
Nortel's Optical Networking and Carrier Ethernet (MEN), GSM/GSM-R
and Carrier VoIP and Application Solutions (CVAS) businesses.  To
date, auctions for sale of four businesses have yielded
US$1.2 billion more in proceeds than initially set out in
'stalking horse' sale agreements.  Through the sales completed or
announced to date, Nortel has preserved 13,000 jobs for Nortel
employees with the buyers of these businesses.

As recently announced, Nortel completed an agreement that will
provide for the funding by Nortel Networks Inc, a U.S.
subsidiary, of the Company's continuing work in Canada through
the remainder of the creditor protection proceedings.  Nortel has
also resolved outstanding transfer pricing with Canadian and U.S.
tax authorities for the taxation years 2001 through 2005 and
settled the US$3 billion claim of the United States Internal
Revenue Service for US$37.5 million.  In addition, Nortel has
restructured certain intercompany indebtedness of its Asia
Pacific affiliates to facilitate their ability to continue to
operate and participate in global asset sales.

The Company announced on February 8 that Nortel reached a
settlement agreement with former and disabled Canadian employee
representatives, on certain employment related matters regarding
former Canadian Nortel employees, including Nortel's Canadian
registered pension plans and benefits for Canadian pensioners and
Nortel employees on long term disability.

           Focusing on work to be done -- Corporate
           Group and Nortel Business Services (NBS)

While numerous milestones have been met, significant work remains
to be completed, Nortel related.  Nortel's Corporate Group is
focused on a number of key actions including the completion of
announced sales and the sale of remaining businesses and assets,
as well as exploring strategic alternatives to maximize the value
of the Company's intellectual property.  The Corporate Group is
also responsible for ongoing restructuring matters including the
creditor claims process, planning toward conclusion of the CCAA
and Chapter 11 process and distributions to creditors.  The
Corporate Group also continues to provide administrative and
management support to the Nortel affiliates around the world.

The NBS Group continues to provide global transitional services
to purchasers of Nortel's businesses, in fulfillment of
contractual obligations under Transitional Service Agreements.
These services include maintenance of customer and network
service levels during the integration process, and providing the
expertise in finance, supply chain management, information
technology, R&D, human resources and real estate necessary to the
orderly and successful transition of businesses to purchasers
over a period of 12 to 24 months.  NBS is also focused on
maximizing the recovery of Nortel's accounts receivables,
inventory and real estate assets.

Nortel is seeking approval of the U.S. and Canadian courts of an
employee plan that is designed to retain personnel at all levels
of Corporate Group and NBS critical to complete the remaining
work.  The plan was developed in consultation with independent
expert advisors taking into account the availability of more
stable and competitive employment opportunities available to
these employees elsewhere.  The plan is supported by the Monitor,
UCC and Ad Hoc Bondholders Group.  Koskie Minsky LLP,
representative counsel to Canadian former employees, has been
advised of the plan.

Approximately 88 percent of the plan's costs is being funded by
the purchasers of Nortel businesses, pursuant to the terms of the
sales agreements.  The purchasers have required that Nortel retain
key employees around the world to ensure that the transition to
them of the acquired businesses is as effective and efficient as
possible.

"The scope and complexity of the work to date and that remains to
be completed requires the efforts of our specialized employees
around the world," said Mr. Richardson.  "In order to meet our
restructuring objectives, bring the process to conclusion and to
fulfill our obligations to provide transitional services to
purchasers of our businesses, it is essential that we retain the
personnel with the required skills, experience and institutional
knowledge.  Accordingly, Nortel has developed a plan designed to
incentivize these key employees to remain with Nortel until our
work is completed."

Mr. Richardson continued, "The employees being offered
participation in the plan were instrumental in the work completed
to date and are critical to fulfilling the remaining tasks
including carrying out the Company's global fiduciary duties,
selling and transitioning businesses, unwinding partnerships,
addressing claims and analyzing thousands of contracts.  The loss
of these key employees at this time would create significant
delays in our activities and place the achievement of our
objectives at risk.  In short, we believe the plan is in the best
interests of our creditors and other stakeholders, and of the
process itself."

NORTEL NETWORKS: Courts OK CVAS Business Sale to Genband
--------------------------------------------------------
Nortel Networks Inc. and its affiliates abandoned plans to
auction off their Carrier VoIP and Application Solutions or CVAS
business and will instead sell it to Genband Inc.

GENBAND, Inc. said its agreement with Nortel to acquire
substantially all assets of Nortel's CVAS business has been
approved by bankruptcy courts in Canada and the United States.

Nortel related in a February 24 statement that it will work
towards closing a sale agreement with Genband announced December
of last year.  The deal authorizes the sale of the CVAS business
for $282 million, subject to balance sheet and other adjustments
estimated at about $100 million for a net price of about
$182 million.

The CVAS business was supposed to be sold at an auction on
February 25, 2010, with Genband's $282 million serving as the
stalking horse bid or the lead bid.  However, no other qualified
bidders emerged although Nortel said it had received other
expressions of interest, according to a report by The Financial
Times.

Under the deal, Genband will acquire product platforms, patents
and other intellectual property used in the CVAS business.  It
also provides for the transition of most of Nortel's CVAS
customer contracts to Genband.

Most of Nortel's employees in the CVAS business will also be
offered jobs with Genband under the deal, which is expected to be
completed in the second quarter of 2010.

Charles Vogt, president and chief executive of Genband, said the
deal will put Genband in "a unique position to cost-effectively
transform today's legacy switching infrastructure for customers
around the world."  He added, "This acquisition will combine
softswitch and application leadership with media, session and
security gateway leadership, creating the industry's most
comprehensive Carrier VoIP portfolio."

In an interview with Dallas Morning News, Mr. Vogt said he
expects about 400 job cuts after the deal goes through, with a
mix of layoffs at Genband and Nortel.  Genband's total Dallas-
area employment, however, will increase from about 220 to between
400 and 500 after the deal is completed, according to the report.

Mr. Vogt said he is not worried about integrating the Nortel
division although its workforce is larger than Genband's staff,
pointing out that former Nortel employees already make up about
30% of Genband's staff.

The CVAS business, which employs over 2,000 people and had annual
sales of about $800 million in 2008, is one of the last major
Nortel business units to be sold, according to The Financial
Times.

NORTEL NETWORKS: Proposes $93 Mil. Employee Incentive Plan
----------------------------------------------------------
Nortel Networks Inc. and its affiliated debtors seek authority
from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware to
implement an incentive plan for their remaining employees and
enter into employment agreements with certain executives.

The participants under the so-called Nortel Special Incentive
Plan are employees who have been tasked to provide corporate
overhead services, according to NNI's attorney, Ann Cordo, Esq.,
at Morris Nichols Arsht & Tunnell LLP, in Wilmington, Delaware.
The contemplated corporate overhead services are required under
the transition services agreements.

The Transition Services Agreements were hammered out in
connection with the sales of the Nortel units' businesses.  The
Transition Agreements require the Nortel units to continue
operating those businesses until they have been completely
transferred to the buyers.

To date, the Nortel units have more than 2,000 workers worldwide.
About 1,000 of those workers are employed in the U.S., 534 are
employed in Canada while the rest are employed in various other
countries.

The Nortel Special Incentive Plan will run from January 1, 2010
to December 31, 2011.  An employee is eligible to participate in
the second year of the Incentive Plan if he or she is still
actively employed by Nortel on January 1, 2011, and prior to that
date, has not received a notice of termination of employment.

Payments under the Nortel Special Incentive Plan and the special
incentive payments under certain employment agreements for the
U.S. and Canadian Nortel Debtors as well as the Foreign Nortel
Units are estimated to total about $93 million, Ms. Cordo says.
The amounts include the individual agreements NNI has negotiated
with Christopher Ricaurte, Donald McKenna and John Veschi:

  1. Under an employment agreement with Mr. Ricaurte, the
     executive will be paid a base salary of $600,000, and will
     be eligible to receive a special incentive payment of up to
     $2.5 million.  As a participant under the Nortel Networks
     Limited Annual Incentive Plan, another compensation program
     which gives cash awards to certain employees, Mr.
     Ricaurte's annual target award will be 100% of his base
     salary.

  2. Mr. McKenna will receive a base salary of $475,000 and will
     be entitled to a special incentive payment of up to
     $1.6 million.  Mr. McKenna's annual target award under the
     AIP will be 100% of his base salary.

  3. Mr. Veschi will receive a base salary of $340,000, and will
     be entitled to a special incentive payment of up to
     $400,000.  His annual target award will be 75% or $255,000
     of his base salary.

Payments under the Nortel Special Incentive Plan and the
Employment Agreement with respect to the U.S. Nortel Debtors only
are estimated not to exceed $56 million, according to Ms. Cordo.

In a related development, Canada-based Nortel Networks Corp. and
its four affiliates also filed a motion in the Canadian Court for
the approval of the Nortel Special Incentive Plan.

Ernst & Young Inc., the firm appointed to monitor the assets of
Nortel Networks Corporation and its four affiliates, also filed
its 37th monitor report, supporting approval of the Incentive
Plan Motion.

            Payment of Awards Under Initial Plans

NNI is also seeking permission from the Bankruptcy Court to make
immediate payments under Nortel's Key Employee Retention Plan and
Key Executive Incentive Plan upon achievement of the "third
milestone," which is the confirmation by the Bankruptcy Court of
NNI's plan of reorganization or the confirmation of the Ontario
Superior Court of Justice of Nortel Networks Corp.'s plan of
restructuring or arrangement.

Pursuant to the terms of the KERP and KEIP, payment of incentive
awards will be made upon the achievement of North American
objectives of Nortel's cost reduction plan; the achievement of
certain parameters that would result in a leaner or more focused
organization; and confirmation of the reorganization plan or plan
of restructuring or arrangement.

Participants under the KERP and KEIP received their bonus awards
last year following achievement of the first two milestones.

The Bankruptcy Court will hold a hearing on March 3, 2010, to
consider approval of the Debtors' requests.

NORTEL NETWORKS: Wants to Enforce Stay on UK Pension Authorities
----------------------------------------------------------------
Nortel Networks Inc. and its affiliated debtors sought and
obtained a ruling from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District
of Delaware that would block two U.K. pension authorities from
participating in an administrative case pursued by the U.K.
pensions regulator to recover as much as GBP2.1 billion from the
Debtors.

In a February 26, 2010 ruling, Bankruptcy Judge Kevin
Gross ordered the enforcement of the automatic stay against
Nortel Networks UK Pension Trust Limited and The Board of
the Pension Protection Fund.  The Bankruptcy Court held that
(i) participation of the UK Pension Authorities in the U.K.
administrative proceeding will be a violation of the automatic
stay and that (ii) sanctions will be meted out on the U.K.
Pension Authorities should they participate.

The Bankruptcy Court also held that the U.K. administrative
proceeding initiated by the U.K. Pensions Regulator is "deemed
void and of no force or effect" on NNI and its U.S. debtor
affiliates.

The Nortel Networks UK Pension Trust Limited is the trustee of
Nortel Networks UK Limited's pension plan program.  The PPF is a
U.K. statutory body established under the U.K. Pensions Act of
2004.  The commencement of NNUK's administration proceedings in
the U.K. led to an "assessment period" where the PPF worked with
the NNUK Pension Trustee to determine the funding position of the
NNUK Pension Plan.

The NNUK Pension Trustee and the PPF jointly filed proofs of
claim in the U.S. Nortel Debtors ' Chapter 11 cases in connection
with the NNUK Pension Plan that was allegedly left underfunded
after NNUK filed for bankruptcy.  The U.K. Pension Claim alleges
that the NNUK Pension Plan is underfunded by as much as
GBP2.1 billion or approximately US$3.1 billion.

The alleged shortfall in the funding of the NNUK Pension Plan
prompted the U.K. Pensions Regulator to issue a warning notice on
the Debtors in January 2010, initiating an administrative
proceeding whose purpose was to determine whether a financial
support direction should be issued on Nortel entities that are
connected with NNUK.

A Financial Support Direction or FSD is a direction issued to an
employer or an entity connected with that employer to secure
financial support for a pension plan.  Securing a FSD would allow
the U.K. Pensions Regulator to make a claim on the far-flung
assets of Nortel Entities, The Financial Times points out.
Without the FSD, the U.K. Regulator could only assert a claim on
NNUK's assets.

Counsel to the Debtors, Delaware-based Morris Nichols Arsht &
Tunnell LLP, and the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors
asserted that the U.K. Pension Claim should be appropriately
determined by the Bankruptcy Court only, emphasizing that the
NNUK Pension Trustee and the PPF submitted to the Bankruptcy
Court's jurisdiction when they filed their proofs of claim
against the Debtors under Chapter 11.

The PPF and the NNUK Pension Trustee defended their action by
saying that the U.K. administrative proceeding would only
determine any claim against the Debtors and thus, would not
violate the automatic stay.  The U.K. Pension Authorities also
argued that NNUK Pension Trustee ought to participate in the U.K.
administrative proceeding because any money recovered would be
payable to it, among other reasons.

The U.K. Pension Authorities also asserted that the Debtors did
not make any contribution to the NNUK Pension Plan between 1991
and 2002, preferring to put aside money for other purposes "at
the expense of the pension plan and its members."  They further
noted that U.K.-based Nortel employees had contributed more than
$150 million during the same period, according to a
February 28, 2010 report by The Ottawa Citizen.

In a related development, Canada-based Nortel Networks Corp. and
Ernst & Young Inc., the firm appointed to monitor the assets of
NNC and four of its Canadian affiliates, asked the Ontario
Superior Court of Justice to direct them to refrain from
participating in the U.K. administrative proceeding.

Under its 38th Monitor Report, Ernst & Young contended that the
U.K. administrative proceeding violates the stay granted by the
Canadian Court through its initial order as well as circumvents
the Canadian Court-approved claims process.

The Canadian Court, which was suppose to hear the Debtors'
Enforcement Motion on February 26, has not yet issued a ruling as
of press time.  The Bankruptcy Court and the Canadian Court are
working in tandem on Nortel's Chapter 11 and insolvency cases.

According to a report by The Financial Times, the matter on the
Nortel Pension Claim is seen to have important implications on
the ability of the U.K. Pensions Regulator to recover amounts for
scheme members or for the PPF, which covers a portion of
underfunded benefits, from related companies outside the U.K.
"This case hinges on whether the U.K. regulator's powers are
recognized by the Canadian courts," The Financial Times quoted
John Ralfe, an independent pensions adviser, as saying.

The U.K. Regulator won a similar case three years ago in the U.S.
in respect of the U.K. scheme of Sea Containers, but the law in
Canada has not yet been tested, the report notes.

NOVA HOLDING: Has Access to West LB Cash Collateral Until March 12
------------------------------------------------------------------
Nova Holding Clinton County LLC and its debtor-affiliates obtained

NOWAUTO GROUP: Posts $522,668 Net Loss for Dec. 31 Quarter
----------------------------------------------------------
NowAuto Group Inc. reported a net loss of $522,668 for the fiscal
second quarter ended December 31, 2009, from a net loss of
$547,214 for the fiscal 2008 second quarter.  The Company reported
a net loss of $965,370 for the six months ended December 31, 2009,
from a net loss of $1,138,039.

The Company said total revenue was $1,481,541 for the three months
ended December 31, 2009, from $1,361,650 for the same period in
2008.  Total revenue was $2,908,168 for the six months ended
December 31, 2009, from $2,467,876 for the same period in 2008.

At December 31, 2009, the Company had total assets of $4,528,029
against total liabilities of $12,011,983, resulting in
stockholders' deficit of $7,483,954.

"The present condition of the sub-prime and below sub-prime auto
market has continued to impact our industry and our company" said
CEO Scott Miller. "While we have managed to increase year-over-
year sales revenue our challenge has been, and will continue to be
on, collections. Our challenge in the current environment is to
aggressively work with our customers to maintain active contracts.
Tighter underwriting criteria yielded positive results in the
September 2010 quarter. Nevertheless, we expect a difficult
environment for the foreseeable future. Our commitment to
customers and shareholders alike remains; NowAuto will do whatever
it can to maintain productive contracts without placing imprudent
demands on our customers" Miller said.

"We continue to seek new ways to improve ourselves and have seen
some success," said Chief Financial Officer Faith Forbis. "The
current economy has created many challenges that will continue in
the near future. Never-the-less, we have been slowly building
momentum," said Forbis.

"Programs initiated in fiscal 2009 have resulted in solid year-
over-year volume and lease revenue" said Chief Operating Officer
Tino Valenzuela. "We successfully consolidated our Corporate and
Reconditioning operations during the September 2010 quarter,
resulting in a significantly faster and more efficient turn over
of inventory" said Valenzuela.

In its Form 10-Q report for the period ended December 31, 2009,
the Company said, "We sustained a material loss in the year ended
June 30, 2005.  This loss continued through June 30, 2009. This
raises substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going
concern. The financial statements do not include any adjustments
that might result from this uncertainty."

According to the Company, "since that initial loss, great efforts
have been made to improve our profitability.  Margins on cars sold
have increased.  Costs, especially overhead, have been reduced.
Head count is kept to a minimum.  Accountability has been greatly
enhanced by development of qualified Accounting staff and the
implementation of an enterprise-wide and fully integrated software
system.  The Company has been and continues to develop the
financing function whose focus includes, but is not limited to
improved stability scoring and credit approval process,
improvement of the total portfolio aging, and reduction of account
losses.  [T]he corporate office and Service Department relocated
to the same facility.  This new facility greatly enhances the
Service Department's efficiency and capacity and gives upper
management closer oversight of operations."

At December 31, 2009, the Company had a $11.5 million line of
credit balance under a $12 million line of credit agreement with
a privately held, independent finance company.  Interest rate on
the line of credit agreement is at prime plus 6% (9.25% at
December 31, 2009).  The line of credit agreement has two
covenants, neither of which the Company is in compliance with as
of December 31, 2009.  However, management believes they have a
positive relationship with the independent finance company and
does not expect any collection activity as a result of these
defaults.  The original line of credit with the lender at its
inception in 2006 was $3,000,000 and the lender has periodically
and consistently increased the limit as the need arose.

Considering the Company's current working capital position
management estimates that the current cash position will not be
adequate to meet cash requirements for the next 12 months and that
additional draws will need to be made against the line of credit
to fund operations.  Subsequent to December 31, 2009, the Company
has been allowed to take additional draws under the revolving
credit agreement.  "We anticipate that we will be able to continue
to draw on this credit facility as the need arises until such time
as we are able to generate sufficient cash flow from operations to
be self sufficient and commence repaying the debt," the Company
said.

NUTRACEA INC: Infant-Cereal Business Sold to Kerry Inc.
-------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle at Bloomberg News reports that the Bankruptcy Court
approved the sale of NutraCea's infant-cereal business to Kerry
Inc. for $3.9 million.  Under the sale process sanctioned by the
Court, Kerry's $3.9 million would start the auction where other
parties may submit competing bids.  However, no competing bids
were submitted prior to the deadline.

Kerry, Inc., a global food ingredients company, has agreed to pay
$3.9 million plus the actual cost of NutraCea's inventory related
to its cereal ingredients business.  The assets to be sold include
certain equipment located in NutraCea's Phoenix plant as well as
related customer and supplier lists and purchase orders related to
the cereal ingredients business.  Neither the Phoenix plant nor
any of the manufacturing assets located in the Company's Dillon,
Montana facility are included in the transaction.

At Closing, Kerry and NutraCea will enter into a Toll Processing
agreement whereby until the earlier of (1) the date Kerry begins
production of cereal products using the assets purchased under the
Purchase Agreement and (2) October, 31, 2010, NutraCea will
produce for Kerry cereal products at NutraCea's Dillon, Montana
plant.

NUTRACEA INC: Promotes Leo G. Gingras to President

lead the tactical and strategic repositioning of the business.

Short, commented, "Leo is a key member of our management team and
one of the few true industry specialists in development of value

significant contributions Leo has made to NutraCea since joining
our organization and his importance to the future of our business.
I deeply appreciate his continuing leadership and dedication to
our company and look forward to collaborating with him and other
members of management as we continue to reposition NutraCea."

OHIO HOUSING: Moody's Downgrades Ratings on Revenue Bonds to 'Ba1'
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's has downgraded to Ba1 from Aaa the Ohio Housing Finance
Agency, Multifamily Housing Revenue Bonds (Sharon Green Townhomes)
2005G and removed it from Watchlist, following a review of cash
flow and parity sufficiency for the life of the bonds, assuming a
0% reinvestment rate.  This action affects $5.9 million in debt.
The bonds are secured by a mortgage that is guaranteed by a Fannie
Mae Stand-by Credit Enhancement Instrument and were structured
without a Guaranteed Investment Contract that assures a fixed rate
of return on invested cash, subjecting the transaction to interest
rate risk on retained revenues.  As a result, revenue from the
monthly mortgage receipts, interest earned on those receipts from
money market funds or other short-term investments and monthly
mortgage payments need to be sufficient to support debt service on
the bonds.  Additionally, at all times the ratio of the value of
the assets held by the trustee, consisting of the amortized value
of the credit-enhanced mortgage and funds pledged to bondholders,
to the bonds outstanding and accrued interest to any redemption
date should exceed 100%.

Assuming no reinvestment earnings on the monthly mortgage
receipts, the projected ratio of assets to liabilities is under
100%, with the result that in a special redemption bondholders
would receive less than the full principal and accrued interest on
the bonds.  This scenario, therefore, would not be consistent with
a Aaa rating.  Based on information Moody's have received, Moody's
believe that the declines in the parity ratio are primarily due to
the failure to redeem bonds as directed under the indenture.  Also
contributing to the shortfall are the very low investments
earnings over the past few years.

The last rating action with respect to the Series 2001 bonds was
on January 26, 2010, when the bonds were placed on Watchlist for
Possible Downgrade.


ONEIDA LTD: $6M Chapter 11 Claim Spat Heads to 2nd Circ.
--------------------------------------------------------
Law360 reports that Peter J. Solomon Co. LP is challenging in a
federal appeals court a ruling expunging its claim for more than
$6 million it says it was owed because Oneida Ltd. didn't send
written notice before retaining another financial adviser ahead of
its March 2006 Chapter 11 filing.

Headquartered in Oneida, New York, Oneida Ltd. (OTC: ONEI) --
http://www.oneida.com/-- manufactures stainless steel and
silverplated flatware for both the Consumer and Foodservice
industries, and supplies dinnerware to the foodservice industry.
Oneida also supplies a variety of crystal, glassware and metal
serveware for the tabletop industries.  The Company has
operations in the United States, Canada, Mexico, the U.K., and
Australia.

The Company and its eight affiliates filed for Chapter 11
protection on March 19, 2006 (Bankr. S.D. N.Y. Case No.
06-10489).  On May 12, 2006, Judge Gropper approved the Debtors'
disclosure statement.  Their pre-negotiated plan of
reorganization was confirmed on Aug. 31, 2006.  The company
emerged from Chapter 11 on Sept. 15, 2006, as a privately held
company.


OWENS CORNING: Moody's Affirms 'Ba1' Corporate Family Rating
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed Owens Corning's ratings --
Corporate Family Rating and Probability of Default at Ba1 and the
senior unsecured bank credit facility and senior unsecured notes
at Ba1.  Owens Corning's speculative grade liquidity score remains
SGL-2.  The outlook has been changed to stable.

The change in outlook to stable from negative results from the
modest expansion in the North American economy, resulting in
improved earnings prospects for Owens Corning's businesses.
Expected improvement in credit metrics resulting from improved
operating performance and debt reduction supports the stable
outlook as well.

The Ba1 Corporate Family Rating considers Owens Corning's business
mix, scale, expectations for operating improvement and good
liquidity profile.  Owens Corning will likely remain reliant on
its roofing business to offset weakness in other business segments
over the intermediate term, despite efforts to diversify into
composite materials, and modestly improved outlooks for other
lines.  Longer term, its diverse product portfolio should position
the company to reap benefits when the economy rebounds more
robustly.

Owens Corning's corporate family rating is currently constrained
by the company's weak credit metrics.  Debt-to-EBITDA of 4.9 times
at FYE09 and EBITA-to-interest expense for 2009 of 1.5 times (all
ratios adjusted per Moody's methodology) are weak for the current
rating.  Although operating margins are expected to improve, Owens
Corning may be unable to immediately pass higher raw material
costs for commodities such as chemicals, resins and asphalt to its
customers, creating volatility in its operating margins.
Additionally, the company's insulation business could suffer if
the U.S. Government prematurely removes its support for the
domestic housing market, a driver of the company's insulation
business.  At the same time, Moody's believes that a combination
of operating efficiencies and the use of free cash flow to reduce
balance sheet debt would result in the company's debt leverage and
interest coverage becoming more supportive of the Ba1 Corporate
Family Rating over time.

These ratings/assessments were affected by this action:

  -- Corporate Family Rating affirmed at Ba1;

  -- Probability of Default Rating affirmed at Ba1;

  -- $1.6 billion senior unsecured bank credit facility due 2011
     affirmed at Ba1, but its loss given default assessment is
     changed to (LGD4, 58%) from (LGD4, 54%);

  -- $650 million senior unsecured notes due 2016 affirmed at Ba1,
     but its loss given default assessment is changed to (LGD4,
     58%) from (LGD4, 54%);

  -- $350 million senior unsecured notes due 2019 affirmed at Ba1,
     but its loss given default assessment is changed to (LGD4,
     58%) from (LGD4, 54%);

  -- $550 million senior unsecured notes due 2036 affirmed at Ba1,
     but its loss given default assessment is changed to (LGD4,
     58%) from (LGD4, 54%); and,

  -- Senior unsecured shelf affirmed at (P)Ba1.

The company's speculative grade liquidity rating remains at SGL-2.

The last rating action was on June 3, 2009, at which time Moody's
affirmed Owens Corning's Corporate Family Rating at Ba1.

Owens Corning, headquartered in Toledo, OH, is a global producer
of composite and building materials systems.  Products range from
glass fiber used to reinforce composite materials used in
transportation, electronics, marine, wind energy and other high-
performance markets to insulation, roofing and manufactured stone
veneer used in residential, commercial and industrial
applications.

Revenues for FY09 totaled approximately $4.8 billion.

PARMALAT SPA: Hermes Seeks Final Settlement Approval
----------------------------------------------------
Lead Plaintiffs Hermes Focus Asset Management Europe Limited,
Cattolica Partecipazioni, S.p.A., Capital & Finance Asset
Management, Societe Moderne des Terrassements Parisiens and
Solotrat notify the Court and parties-in-interest that they will
ask the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York
on March 8, 2010, for final approval of their proposed settlements
with Defendants Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, Deloitte & Touche LLP,
James Copeland, Grant Thornton International, Grant Thornton
International Limited, Grant Thornton LLP, Grant Thornton S.p.A.

The Lead Plaintiffs also file an accompanying memorandum of law, a
declaration by Aaron Waugh, and a joint declaration of Lisa M.
Mezzetti, James J. Sabella and Robert M. Roseman in support of
their request.

James J. Sabella, Esq., at Grant & Eisenhofer P.A., in New York,
asserts that the Settlements, which the Court addressed in its
order dated November 24, 2009, are fair and in the best interests
of investors, who were damaged by the fraudulent conduct that led
to the collapse of Parmalat Finanziaria S.p.A. and its affiliates.

The Settlements provide for payment of a total of $15 million.
Specifically, the Deloitte Settlement provides for a settlement
amount of $8.5 million, and the Grant Thornton Settlement provides
for a settlement amount of $6.5 million.  The Settlement
Stipulations provides for the release of claims against, inter
alia, the Deloitte and Grant Thornton Defendants and their member
firms.

Consistent with the Court's decision on the motion for class
certification, the settlement funds will be paid, pursuant to the
Plan of Allocation, to domestic purchasers, who purchased or
otherwise acquired Parmalat equity securities between January 5,
1999, and December 18, 2003, inclusive.

As the Court is aware, Mr. Sabella notes, there were several prior
settlements in the multidistrict litigation.  Previously, Banca
Nazionale del Lavoro S.p.A. paid $25 million to settle claims
against it, Credit Suisse Group and related defendants paid
$25 million to settle claims against them, and Parmalat S.p.A.
paid 10.5 million shares of Parmalat S.p.A. to settle claims
against it, which shares sold in the market for approximately
$26 million.  He asserts that those settlements were all granted
final approval by the Court.  Thus, he says, combined with the
prior settlements, the Settlements with the Auditor Defendants
brings the total recovery in the case to just over $90 million.

In connection with Lead Plaintiffs' motion for a preliminary
order, the Court approved a notice plan, including publishing the
notice in The Wall Street Journal, on the PR Newswire and the
Businesswire, and mailing the notice to Class members, who could
be reasonably identified.  The Court's Preliminary Order directed
the Lead Plaintiffs to commence the notice plan by December 10,
2009.

Mr. Sabella informs the Court that the Lead Plaintiffs have
complied with the notice requirements.  The Notices described the
terms of the Settlements and provided Class Members an opportunity
to request exclusion from the Settlement Class by February 1,
2010, or to object to the Settlements by February 15.  As of
February 26, he discloses, no objections have been received.  He
adds that the Class' reaction to the Settlements also supports
approval.

In connection with the Settlements, Class Counsel Grant &
Eisenhofer P.A.; Cohen, Milstein, Sellers & Toll, PLLC; and
Spector Roseman Kodroff & Willis, P.C., also ask the Court,
pursuant to Rule 23(h) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, to
award them (i) attorneys' fees in the amount of 18.5% of the Gross
Settlement Fund, and (ii) reimbursement of expenses amounting to
$161,857.

                      Parties Seal Briefs

In a letter addressed to Judge Lewis A. Kaplan of the U.S.
District Court for the Southern District of New York, Linda T.
Coberly, Esq., at Winston & Strawn LLP, in Chicago, Illinois, says
that she writes on behalf of the parties in the cases involving
Grant Thornton International and Grant Thornton LLP in the
multidistrict litigation concerning the record underlying the
Court's opinion and judgment in the cases.  She reminds the Court
that the summary judgment briefing in the cases began with the
compilation of extensive draft joint statements of disputed and
undisputed facts under Rule 56.1 of the Local Civil Rules of the
District Court for the Southern District of New York, prepared at
the Court's direction over the course of several months.

Summary judgment briefing, then, followed in stages, concluding
with the issue of in pari delicto, which the Court found
dispositive.  Although the Court received both hard copies and
electronic versions of the Rule 56.1 statements concerning in pari
delicto, the evidence underlying those statements was submitted to
the Court only in electronic "ibrief" format, prepared for the
Court's convenience.  The ibrief was submitted to the Chambers
under seal along with the briefing but inadvertently was not also
formally filed under seal with the Clerk of the Court, as the
vicarious liability ibrief had been.

Dr. Enrico Bondi and Parmalat Capital Finance Limited have asked
that a joint corrective sealed filing of the in pari delicto
ibrief be made to complete the sealed vault index record for their
appeals.  Ms. Coberly says that the Grant Thornton defendants have
no objection to the proposal.

Accordingly, Ms. Coberly, on behalf of the Grant Thornton
defendants, Dr. Bondi and the other parties, asks that the in pari
delicto ibrief be filed in the vault and remain under seal.  In
the interest of completeness, the parties make the same request
with regard to the ibrief submitted to the Court in respect to
that certain "Daubert motion concerning the four Italian experts."

Ms. Coberly assures Judge Kaplan that Grant Thornton
International, Bank of America, Dr. Bondi, and Parmalat Capital
all agree with the proposal.

Judge Kaplan approved the proposal, provided that counsel will
furnish another copy of the ibrief for filing.  The Court reserves
the right to unseal any or all of the sealed materials.

                         *     *     *

In accordance with the Court's directive, James L. Bernard, Esq.,
at Stroock & Stroock & Lavan, LLP, in New York, relates that they
attempted to file under seal with the Clerk of the Court two DVDs
containing copies of the electronic ibriefs.  Mr. Bernard is Grant
Thornton's counsel.

The Clerk, however, said that even though the Court previously
were able to accept those filings, it can no longer accept filings
in DVD format without a directive from the Court.

Accordingly, Grant Thornton sought and obtained a Court order
directing the Clerk to accept the DVDs.

Grant Thornton subsequently filed under seal the ibriefs.

PARMALAT SPA: MacKenzie Cundill Wants Dividends From $1.5BB Deal
---------------------------------------------------------------
Parmalat S.p.A.'s largest investor, Mackenzie Cundill Investment
Management Ltd., wants the company to turn over the $1.5 billion
left over from lawsuit settlements to shareholders through stock
buybacks or dividends, Armorel Kenna of Bloomberg News reports.

As previously reported, Parmalat has reached certain settlements
with various parties, including the $100 million settlement
reached with Bank of America Corporation, Bank of America National
Trust & Savings Association, Bank of America N.A, Banc of America
Securities, LLC, Banc of America Securities Limited, Bank of
America International Ltd. and other Bank of America related
entities.

"Mackenzie Cundill would prefer to see cash returned to
shareholders in the form of share repurchases or dividends,"
rather than being spent on mergers and acquisitions, David Tiley
of Mackenzie Cundill is quoted by Bloomberg as saying.  He said
that fund holds more than 7.7% of Parmalat and may buy more.

According to Parmalat's draft annual report filed February 25,
2010, Parmalat distributes approximately 178 million euros in
dividends equal to 0.104 euros per share.  The draft report also
reveals that Parmalat Group's net profit in 2009 was 519 million
euros.

Mr. Tiley said that Parmalat could pay an extraordinary dividend,
which must be approved at a shareholders meeting, Bloomberg
reports.  He added that Mackenzie Cundill would like to see the
cash turned over "expeditiously," and that Parmalat should retain
as much money as it needs to run its business.

"The company is clearly overcapitalized today and shareholders,
management, branded competitors and private equity all know it,"
Mr. Tiley further said.

PARMALAT SPA: U.S. Court Dismisses Complaint Against BofA
---------------------------------------------------------
Judge Lewis A. Kaplan of the U.S. District Court for the Southern
District of New York dismissed the complaint filed by Food
Holdings Limited and Dairy Holdings Limited against Bank of
America Corp., Bank of America, N.A., and Banc of America
Securities, LLC, which case is consolidated in Parmalat S.p.A.'s
multidistrict litigation.

In his 57-page opinion, Judge Kaplan related that the case had its
genesis in the desire of Parmalat to raise money by selling a
minority of the stock of its Brazilian subsidiary, Parmalat
Administracao, at a time when that stock could not be sold in
equity markets.  BofA conceived of and Parmalat engaged in a pair
of matched transactions that were intended to provide off-balance
sheet debt financing to bridge the gap until the Parmalat Brazil
stock could be sold on attractive terms.  BofA arranged for the
creation of two special purpose entities, FHL and DHL that would
exist only on paper and only for the purpose of completing the
transaction.

The SPEs would (i) borrow $300 million from institutional
investors, and (ii) buy the Parmalat Brazil stock from Parmalat
Brazil for $300 million.  The debt eventually was to have been
repaid with the proceeds of the sale by the SPEs of the Parmalat
Brazil stock.

To make the SPEs' notes salable, BofA recommended and Parmalat
provided two additional sources of funds to pay the debt in the
event the Parmalat Brazil stock could not be sold at a price
sufficient to satisfy the notes.  Thus, the ability of the
institutional investors to be repaid depended upon any one of
three conditions being satisfied: (1) the successful sale of the
SPEs' Parmalat Brazil stock for at least $300 million, (2) the
performance by Parmalat Capital Finance Limited of its obligations
under a "put" option, or (3) Parmalat's performance of its
guarantee of PCFL's obligation.

In the end, none of these conditions was satisfied because the
structure failed.  The institutional investors, chief among them
BofA, which had bought $165 million of the notes, were left
holding the bag, Judge Kaplan noted.

"In hindsight, the reasons for this debacle are plain.  Even when
the deal closed, the likelihood that the Parmalat Brazil stock was
worth or, in any reasonable time frame, likely to be
worth $300 million was uncertain at best.  The only apparently
solid sources of funds to repay the debt issued by the SPEs were
the PCFL put and the Parmalat guarantee," Judge Kaplan said.  "But
Parmalat and its entire organization, including PCFL, collapsed in
December 2003 upon the discovery of a massive fraud," he added.

This case is particularly interesting because the plaintiffs are
the SPEs created by BofA, who claim that they were defrauded and
otherwise wronged by the entity that created them and that held a
majority of the debt they issued, Judge Kaplan noted.  The SPEs
argue that they would not have bought the overvalued Parmalat
Brazil stock in the first place if they had known the truth
regarding Parmalat Brazil and BofA's internal assessments of the
deal.

SPEs formed to engage in structured finance transactions, like FHL
and DHL, have no past, no future, and no employees, Judge Kaplan
explained.  They are creatures of the financial services companies
that cause their creation.  They are phantoms, endowed by law with
legal personality but having no real existence, he added.  He
maintained that the questions whether the SPEs could have been
deceived or whether they would have acted differently if only one
or another piece of information had been fully and fairly
disclosed therefore arise in a context rather different from that
of the usual fraud or breach of fiduciary duty case.

"In the last analysis, I conclude that BofA did not commit fraud
because it lacked culpable intent.  In the particular
circumstances of this case, however, BofA owed the SPEs fiduciary
duties and breached them by failing to disclose all material
facts," Judge Kaplan opined.  "But the SPEs were not injured
because they never considered the business merits of this deal in
the first place and would have gone forward regardless of any
other or additional disclosures by BofA," he continued.

The conclusion, however, Judge Kaplan submitted, would be almost
inconceivable if the controversy had arisen between substantial
and responsible companies.  Judge Kaplan went on to explain that
the SPE "directors," who nominally approved the deal, were hired
by BofA for a fee, and made no serious business judgment as to the
desirability of the deal from the SPEs' standpoint.

The SPE directors were engaged to vote "yes," and they did.  "This
they would have done even if the allegedly concealed information
had been disclosed to them.  Hence, there is no causal
relationship between BofA's breach of fiduciary duty and any
injury suffered by the SPEs," Judge Kaplan opined.

FHL and DHL's unjust enrichment claim fails for the independent
reason that valid agreements cover the subject matter that gives
rise to the alleged enrichment, Judge Kaplan further explained,
among other things.  He noted that BofA's relationship with FHL
and DHL and its obligations as arranger are governed by the
transaction agreements, including the management and note purchase
agreements.  Hence, FHL and DHL's claim for unjust enrichment must
be dismissed.

In another filing, Judge Kaplan ordered the substitution of two
pages of his opinion with new pages due to certain corrections.

PCAA PARENT: Wins Final Nod for $5 Million DIP Financing
--------------------------------------------------------
PCAA Parent, LLC and its units obtained final approval from the
Hon. Mary F. Walrath of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District
of Delaware to obtain up to $5 million of postpetition secured
financing from a syndicate of lenders led by ING Real Estate
Finance (USA) LLC, as administrative agent.

The attorney for the Debtors -- Mark D. Collins, Esq., at
Richards, Layton & Finger, P.A., and Matthew S. Barr, Esq., at
Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP -- explained that the Debtors
need the money to fund their Chapter 11 case, pay suppliers and
other parties.

The DIP facility will mature 150 days from the petition date.

PCAA is scheduled to present on May 14 its Chapter 11 plan.  The
plan is based upon a sale of the business, as Bainbridge ZKS -
Corinthian Holdings LLC has offered $111.5 million.  An auction,
where Bainbridge would be the stalking horse bidder is scheduled
for April 20.

Under the Plan, secured lenders, owed about $199.5 million, would
get the proceeds related to the sale of its underlying collateral.
No projected recovery was given.  Two other groups of secured
creditors -- Chicago and RCL creditors -- would get full payment
of their $6 million in cash from the sale of the assets pledged as
their collateral.

Unsecured creditors would share "distributable value" ascribed to
the specific company units they hold a claim against.  They would
also split 25,000 of the sale proceeds, any remaining assets and
any potential lawsuits.

PETER POCKLINGTON: Bankruptcy Fraud Trial Set for June 29
---------------------------------------------------------
The National Post in Edmonton, Canada, reports that the oft-
postponed bankruptcy-fraud trial of former Edmonton Oilers owner
Peter Pocklington has been set for June 29 in Riverside, Calif.

The trial was delayed three times last year and again in January.

Mr. Pocklington is being accused of concealing assets when he
filed for bankruptcy.  The Globe & Mail relates that
Mr. Pocklington has pleaded not guilty to the two-count felony
indictment that accuses him of filing false personal bankruptcy
declarations and making false oaths.

Mr. Pocklington owned the Edmonton Oilers of the National Hockey
League.  He declared bankruptcy in 2008, citing assets of $2,900
and liabilities of $19.7 million.

As reported by the TCR on March 13, 2009, authorities arrested Mr.
Pocklington in the U.S. for allegedly hiding assets during his
bankruptcy.  U.S. Attorney Thomas O'Brien in Los Angeles said in a
statement that Mr. Pocklington is accused of making false
statements and false oaths when he filed for bankruptcy in August
2008 and faces as long as 10 years in prison if convicted.

PROVO CRAFT: Moody's Assigns 'B2' Corporate Family Rating
---------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned an initial B2 corporate family
and probability of default ratings to Provo Craft & Novelty, Inc.
Moody's also assigned a B1 rating to Provo Craft's new senior
secured credit facilities (LGD3, 34%).  Proceeds from the new
credit facility and new mezzanine financing will help fund BAML
Capital Partners' acquisition of Provo Craft.  The rating outlook
is stable.

Provo Craft's B2 corporate family rating reflects its modest
scale, narrow product focus, presence in niche segments of the
crafts industry, and the Cricut product's relatively short track
record within the craft industry.  Alternatively, supporting Provo
Craft's ratings are its attractive operating margins, moderate
leverage at the transaction's inception and sizable equity
contribution.  Also supporting the ratings are its good growth
prospects in mostly untapped niche markets, notably paper cutting
and cake decorating as well as customer diversification.  The
acquired business grew approximately 21% in 2009 despite the
product's high price point and a very challenging economic
environment in the US.

The stable outlook reflects Provo Craft's good operating
performance and resilience through the challenging economic
downturn.  The stable outlook also considers Moody's expectation
of still good top-line growth (lower levels of machines and higher
levels of cartridges) as the company continues to grow its
consumer base in 2010, success in the launch of its new Cricut
Cake into the cake decorating segment and strengthening credit
metrics.

These ratings were assigned:

* Corporate family rating at B2;

* Probability-of-default rating at B2;

* $50 million senior secured revolving credit facility due 2015,
  at B1 (LGD3, 34%);

* $120 million senior secured term loan due 2016, at B1 (LGD3,
  34%);

The rating outlook is stable.

Headquartered in Spanish Fork, Utah, Provo Craft & Novelty Inc.,
is a leading designer and marketer of electronic cutting systems
as well as a line of other crafts.  The company reported sales of
approximately $262 million for the twelve months ended
December 31, 2009.  Provo Craft's equity sponsors are BAML Capital
Partners and Sorenson Capital.


PURPLE COMMUNICATIONS: Files Emergency Stay Request with FCC
------------------------------------------------------------
Purple Communications(TM), Inc., has filed an Emergency Stay
Request and Application for Review with the Federal Communications
Commission (FCC) in order to grant the company due process
regarding the FCC's withholding of funds owed to Purple.

                              Background

On February 25, 2010, the FCC issued a Declaratory Ruling
addressing certain types of calls that are not compensable under
the Telecommunications Relay Services program administered by the
FCC.  The Declaratory Ruling applies to all providers and is
purported to clarify prior rules the FCC believes have been clear,
thereby making its applicability retroactive.

Although Purple agrees with the objectives of the FCC; 1) to
ensure the integrity of the TRS Fund; 2) to eliminate potential
"double dipping" opportunities for providers who employ the deaf
and who also use their services in the performance of their work-
related obligations; and 3) the need for clarification of the
types of calls that are compensable from the TRS Fund, Purple does
not concur with the recent actions that the FCC has taken in the
name of achieving those objectives.

Purple, deaf consumer organizations, and other providers have long
been on record requesting that the FCC provide clarifications as
to the permissibility of calls which are reimbursable under the
TRS program.  As recently as August 2009, Purple and eight
national consumer organizations asked the FCC to open a rulemaking
process that would be transparent and allow for public discussion
on which types of calls should be permissible for reimbursement
under the TRS program.  In September 2009, the Commission issued
an Order singling out calls between two or more deaf individuals
as being non-compensable from the TRS Fund.  Although the February
25, 2010 Declaratory Ruling is purported to provide clarification
of prior rules the Commission felt were in force, it is unclear
why the FCC failed to take the opportunity in the September 2009
Order or earlier in order to clarify rules in the face of repeated
requests by the industry participants.  Purple believes that many
of the newly issued clarifications are really new definitions of
rules that were not commonly understood among the industry. Also
not addressed in the September 2009 Order was the contemplation of
various options for reimbursing providers for reasonable expenses
incurred in connection with the processing of calls made by deaf
employees or contractors of relay providers, another issue on
which many, including Purple, have offered alternative cost
recovery approaches.  In addition to issuing rules without a
formal rule-making process involving consumer and industry group
participation, the new rules are mandated as retroactive in effect
for all industry providers.

          Reason for the Emergency Stay and Appeal Request

In addition to the ruling, the FCC has issued Purple a demand
letter requesting reimbursement for call types that were processed
in 2008 and 2009 for which are now defined under the February 25,
2010 Declaratory Ruling as non-compensable.  The FCC also notified
Purple of its intention to withhold all compensation to the
company, regardless of whether the compensation is related to
permissible calls or not, until a resolution is reached regarding
monies the FCC believes are owed back to the TRS Fund.  These
extreme actions by the FCC will result in a cessation of all
operations if resolution cannot quickly be achieved.

Immediate Impact on Purple and its Deaf and Hard of Hearing
Customers

As part of its cooperation with the FCC, Purple believed it was on
a track of negotiating a global settlement agreement related to
all historical inquiries; however, absent an immediate release of
funds, Purple will soon be insolvent, forcing either a bankruptcy
proceeding or liquidation of Purple.  A liquidation of Purple
would result in a loss of more than 1,000 jobs, a significant
percentage of which are held by deaf or hard of hearing employees
and the termination of all relay- and on-site interpreting
services provided to the deaf community.  This action could result
in serious public safety issues in the event the traffic handled
by Purple is unable to be readily absorbed in the market by
remaining providers, particularly text relay services where Purple
is the largest provider, or its interpreting services, which are
provided to hospitals and other urgent care and medical
operations.

Through its Emergency Stay Request and Appeal, Purple is seeking
an immediate release of funds, which match the description of
compensable calls under the new Declaratory Ruling that would
allow a proper settlement to be negotiated in due course and would
afford the company the natural due process it is entitled to.

"The retroactive impact of the ruling and related financial
clawbacks could be financially devastating for the industry,
particularly smaller providers who employ the deaf.  Too, this
could further exacerbate a market structure problem with a single
provider having complete domination over the market," said Dan
Luis, Purple's CEO.

"Purple is proud to be an employer of hundreds of deaf and hard of
hearing employees and community outreach representatives.  The
cost to provide the same level of telecommunications access to a
deaf employee as to a hearing employee is significantly higher. As
long as providers are allowed to recover the full costs to provide
this access, we can make this element of the Declaratory Ruling
work; however, we also believe that this ruling could be a civil
rights setback as it places a discriminatory burden on deaf and
hard of hearing employees of TRS providers, which could lead to
the loss of jobs and reduced employment opportunities among the
deaf in a field that serves their community," added Ronald E.
Obray, Purple's vice chairman.

"Ultimately, deaf and hard of hearing consumers could become the
victims due to this ruling.  This decision could potentially
annihilate any small-VRS provider that employs the deaf, which
would prevent a choice in providers and the incentive to innovate.
A VRS provider should not have to make a business decision to not
hire deaf or hard of hearing employees, as the cost for their
rights of functional equivalency is too high," said Kelby Brick,
Purple's Vice President of Regulatory and Strategic Policy.

RADIENT PHARMACEUTICALS: Board Adopts Financial Stabilization Plan
------------------------------------------------------------------
The Board of Directors of Radient Pharmaceuticals Corporation is
seeking stockholder approval at a Special Shareholders Meeting on
April 8, 2010, of a Financial Stabilization Plan.  The Plan is
focused around building upon a highly improved balance sheet,
eliminating up to roughly $6.3 million in debt, infusing roughly
$10 million in new equity from long-term institutional investors
and creating a new stock option plan that will incentivize
management and employees to drive the Company's In-vitro
Diagnostics business to new heights in sales and profitability in
2010 and beyond.

The Financial Stabilization Plan calls for the issuance of up to:

     30,000,000 shares of common stock in connection with a
                potential offering of either common stock,
                convertible preferred stock, convertible debt or
                warrants to purchase common stock, to one or a
                limited number of third-party, accredited
                investors;

     13,096,386 shares of common stock in exchange for the
                cancellation of all principal amount of the
                outstanding 12% Series 1 Notes the Company issued
                in December 2008 and January 2009, and the Series
                2 Notes issued in May 2009 and June 2009;

      6,719,617 shares of common stock in exchange for the
                cancellation of outstanding 10% Convertible
                Promissory Notes issued in September 2008.  The
                exchanging 10% Note Holders will also receive
                five-year warrants to purchase up to 2,901,323
                shares of common stock;

      1,755,239 shares of common stock in exchange for the
                cancellation of outstanding 12% promissory note
                issued on September 15, 2009, to St. George
                Investments, LLC;

        404,526 shares of common stock in exchange for the
                cancellation of outstanding Bridge Note issued in
                September 2009;

        514,286 shares of common stock in exchange for cash
                consulting fees due under the Consulting Agreement
                with Cantone Asset Management, LLC;

        343,535 shares of common stock to the placement agents of
                the 10% Convertible Notes and the Series 1 and 2
                Notes in consideration for their efforts in
                connection with obtaining the note holders'
                consent to the exchange agreements;

      5,697,513 shares of common stock for the exercise of
                outstanding warrants issued pursuant to the
                Registered Direct2009 Offering.

In a proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission, the Company said it is carrying an aggregate of
$7,900,000 of indebtedness that is in default, or is due on
outstanding notes and other contractual obligations which are past
due or soon to be due.  Management is concerned the Company may
not have sufficient cash to satisfy the debts and carry on the
Company's current operations.

At the Special Meeting, the shareholders will also be asked to
approve an amendment to the Company's Certificate of Incorporation
to increase the authorized number of shares of common stock by
100,000,000 shares of common stock for a total of 200,000,000
shares of authorized common stock.  The shareholders will also be
asked to approve the Company's 2010 Performance and Equity
Incentive Plan providing for the Company's issuance of options to
purchase 6,000,000 shares of common stock.

RAFAELLA APPAREL: Tender Offer Won't Affect Moody's Ratings
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service announced that Rafaella Apparel Group,
Inc.'s ratings are unchanged following the announcement that the
company has commenced a Modified Dutch Auction tender offer to
purchase for cash up to $36,380,000 principal amount at maturity
(but not less than $17,975,000) of its 11-1/4% Senior Secured
Notes due 2011.  Proceeds from the transaction will be sourced
from balance sheet cash and borrowings to be available upon the
effectiveness of an amended and restated credit facility
agreement, which will include up to $10 million from a term loan
provided by an affiliate of Rafaella's controlling stockholder, RA
Cerberus Acquisition, LLC.

Moody's will likely consider the proposed transaction to be a
distressed exchange.  Without the transaction, in Moody's view,
Rafaella's capital structure is unsustainable due to the
persistent declines in revenue and cash flow stemming from past
customer consolidation and more recent declines in consumer
spending.  Further, Moody's continues to view the company's
liquidity as weak given its significant near-to-intermediate term
debt maturities.  Rafaella's revolving credit facility is due to
expire on December 15, 2010, but could be extended to April 1,
2011 upon consummation of the transaction.  Rafaella's secured
notes mature on June 15, 2011.  While the maturity date of the
notes will not change, the transaction, if successful, is expected
to reduce the amount of debt that will need to be refinanced by
that date.

Upon the conclusion of the tender offer, Moody's could revise the
ratings to reflect the post-exchange credit profile and, at that
time, will likely denote the limited default by adding the "/LD"
designation to the probability of default rating.

Rafaella's ratings and outlook are:

  -- Corporate Family Rating: Caa3
  -- Probability of Default Rating: Caa3
  -- Senior secured notes due June 2011: Ca (LGD4, 62%)
  -- The ratings outlook is negative.

The last rating action for Rafaella was on November 4, 2009, when
Moody's downgraded its CFR to Caa3 with a negative outlook.

Rafaella Apparel Group, Inc., based in New York, NY, is a
designer, sourcer, and marketer of a full line of women's career
and casual sportswear separates under the Rafaella brand.  Net
sales for the twelve months ended December 31, 2009, were
$113 million.


RAHAXI INC: Reports $1.47-miL. Net Loss for Dec. 31 Quarter
-----------------------------------------------------------
Rahaxi, Inc., said net loss attributable to Rahaxi shareholders
was $1,467,006 for the three months ended December 31, 2009, from
a net loss of $5,199,590 for the 2008 quarter.   Rahaxi said net
loss attributable to shareholders was $2,599,285 for the six
months ended December 31, 2009, from a net loss of $8,551,562 for
the 2008 period.

Total revenue was $1,436,156 for the three months ended
December 31, 2009, from $1,375,768 for the 2008 quarter.  Total
revenue was $2,674,098 for the six months ended December 31, 2009,
from $2,622,253 for the 2008 period.

At December 31, 2009, the Company had total assets of $2,881,216
against total current liabilities of $6,102,244 and long-term
portion of notes payable of $887,977; resulting in stockholders'
deficit of $4,602,784.

The Company believes that anticipated revenues from operations
will be insufficient to satisfy its ongoing capital requirements
for the next 12 months.  If the Company's financial resources are
insufficient, the Company will require additional financing in
order 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 is pursuing all available options to provide the
Company with the ability to continue as a going concern.  The
Company continues to pursue financing through the sale of its
stock in private placements to individual investors.  However,
given the challenges presented by the current capital markets, as
well as the decline in the Company's stock price and the Company's
continued losses, management is considering a broader range of
options, which may include a registered offering for investors,
additional debt issuances or financings at the subsidiary level,
such as the sale of a portion of Rahaxi Processing Oy. The Company
may also pursue the acquisition of certain strategic industry
partners where appropriate.

REDDY ICE: Bank Nat'l Association Executes Supplemental Indenture
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Reddy Ice Holdings, Inc. and U.S. Bank National Association, the

Indenture in order to effect the proposed amendments to the Old
Notes and the Indenture, as provided in the offering circular
dated February 22, 2010.  The amendments, however, will not become
operative with respect to the Old Notes and the Indenture until
Reddy Ice Corporation, a Nevada corporation and wholly-owned
subsidiary of the Company, has accepted for exchange as of the
initial acceptance date at least a majority of the outstanding
aggregate principal amount of the Old Notes.  As a result of the
execution of the Supplemental Indenture, Old Notes that have been

of New Notes if their Old Notes are tendered at or prior to the
early tender date for the offer, which will be 5:00 p.m., New York

The exchange offer and consent solicitation is subject to certain

facility by Reddy Corp, the termination and repayment of all
indebtedness under Reddy Corp's existing credit facility and the
issuance by Reddy Corp of new first lien notes in an amount
sufficient to refinance Reddy Corp's existing credit facility.

REDONDO CONSTRUCTION: Court Revises Interest Calculation
--------------------------------------------------------
As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 18, 2009,
Redondo Construction Corporation brought three adversary
proceedings (Bankr. D. P.R. Adv. Pro. Nos. 03-0192, 03-0194 and
03-0195) against the Puerto Rico Highway and Transportation
Authority, claiming amounts due for work performed on three road
construction projects.  The Honorable Gerardo A. Carlo, 411 B.R.
89, entered judgments in the debtor's favor.  The Debtor moved to
amend Judge Carlo's decision, and the Transportation Authority
moved to alter or amend the judgments or, alternatively, for new
trial, WestLaw reports.  Reviewing the post-judgment requests, the
Honorable Enrique S. Lamoutte orders that in Adv. Pro. No. 03-
0192, the Puerto Rico Highway and Transportation Authority is
liable to Redondo Construction Corporation in the amount of
$643,545.77, with prejudgment interest at 6.5% from February 27,
2007.  In re Redondo Const. Corp., --- B.R. ----, 2010 WL 529430

Bankruptcy Court confirmed the Debtor's chapter 11 plan on
October 6, 2005.


REGENT BROADCASTING: Moody's Affirms 'D' Default Rating
-------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed Regent Broadcasting LLC's
Probability of Default Rating of D and downgraded the Corporate
Family Rating to Caa3 following Regent's prearranged
reorganization filing with the U.S.  Bankruptcy Court in the
District of Delaware effective March 1, 2010.  This action
concludes the review for possible downgrade initiated on
January 6, 2010.  The rating outlook is stable.

The Caa3 Corporate Family Rating reflects Moody's view on expected
lender recovery.

Subsequent to the actions, all ratings will be withdrawn.  Moody's
will withdraw the ratings because the issuer has entered
bankruptcy.

These summarizes Moody's rating actions and current ratings:

Regent Broadcasting LLC

  -- Corporate Family Rating, Downgraded to Caa3 from Caa1

  -- Probability of Default Rating, Affirmed at D

  -- Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility, Downgraded to Caa3 from
     Caa1

  -- Outlook, Changed To Stable From Rating Under Review

  -- Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, Unchanged at SGL-4

The last rating action for Regent occurred on January 6, 2010,
when Moody's downgraded the probability of default rating to D.

Regent Broadcasting LLC owns and operates 62 stations located in
13 markets.

ROYAL WEST: Owners Face SEC Charges in $135-Mil. Ponzi Scheme
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Securities and Exchange Commission charged a Miami-based
business leader and his wife with fraud for conducting a $135
million Ponzi scheme with real estate investments from hundreds of
elderly Cuban-American investors living in South Florida.

The SEC alleges that Gaston E. Cantens and Teresita Cantens, the
founders and co-owners of real estate development company Royal
West Properties Inc., sold promissory notes to investors after
acquiring various properties and later financing their sale.  The
Cantens lured investors by promising the investments in their real
estate business were safe and secure with annual returns between 9
and 16 percent.  However, when property owners defaulted on their
mortgages, Royal West's financial condition deteriorated and the
Cantens used new investor money to repay earlier investors and
afford the firm's operating costs.  The Cantens also
misappropriated more than $20 million from investors to fund
unrelated personal business ventures, pay themselves high
salaries, and divert money to their children and grandchildren.

The Cantens were not registered with the SEC under the federal
securities laws to make securities offerings to investors.

"The Cantens used their prominent standing in a close-knit Cuban-
American community to ruthlessly exploit vulnerable elderly
investors who trusted them with their life savings," said Eric I.
Bustillo, Director of the SEC's Miami Regional Office. "They
portrayed themselves as a pious couple closely involved with
educational and religious organizations, while in reality they
were living lavishly off money from defrauded investors."

According to the SEC's complaint, filed in U.S. District Court for
the Southern District of Florida, the Cantens gained the trust of
prospective investors in typical affinity fraud fashion by
cultivating an impression within their community that it was a
privilege to invest with them. The Cantens emphasized that Jesuit
priests and other well-known leaders in the Cuban-American
community had invested with Royal West. They targeted investors at
charitable and religious gatherings and at social functions in
their home. They also recruited investors through their contacts
with alumni and others associated with a local private boys'
school where Gaston Cantens served on the Board of Advisors.
Besides word of mouth, the Cantens also attracted potential
investors who learned of Royal West properties through television
commercials broadcast on Spanish-language channels nationwide.

The SEC alleges that the Cantens made numerous material
misrepresentations and omissions about the safety and security of
investors' principal and returns, the success of Royal West's
business, the source of purported investment returns, and the use
of investor funds.  The Cantens told potential investors that
Royal West generated investors' returns through the sale of land
and its mortgage receivables business, which they claimed was
highly successful.  The representations were false because Royal
West was not generating sufficient income from its real estate
business and mortgage receivables to pay its business expenses or
investors' principal and interest payments.  By 2002, the Cantens
had resorted to using new investor funds to make principal and
interest payments to earlier investors.  Even after Royal West
entered dire financial condition, the Cantens continued to falsely
tout their business as financially successful to attract new
investors and raise additional millions of dollars to continue the
Ponzi scheme.

The SEC further alleges that the Cantens falsely represented that
the promissory notes were collateralized by mortgages or mortgage
obligations. In fact, Royal West did not record as many as one-
third of the assignments of mortgage receivables that served to
collateralize investors' promissory notes. Royal West also
assigned the same mortgage receivables to multiple investors at
the same time.

The SEC's complaint charges the Cantens with violating the
securities registration and antifraud provisions of the federal
securities laws.  The complaint seeks permanent injunctions, sworn
accountings, disgorgement of ill-gotten gains and financial
penalties against the Cantens.

SIX FLAGS: Creditors Committee Opposes Plan Confirmation
--------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors in Six Flags Inc.'s
cases, as a representative of, and fiduciary for, unsecured
creditors at all levels of the Debtors' capital structure, tells
the Court that it believes its role is to work towards a fair
allocation of value amongst all those creditors while allowing the
Debtors to emerge promptly as an adequately capitalized and viable
business.

In this regard, the Creditors' Committee asks the Court to deny
confirmation of the Debtors' Fourth Amended Plan of
Reorganization contending that the Plan contains several fatal
flaws that, as a matter of law, render it incapable of
confirmation.  The Plan defects noticed by the Creditors'
Committee include:

(a) the artificially-low valuation underlying the SFO Plan,
     which results in the delivery of value to SFO Noteholders
     far in excess of the allowed amount of their claims in
     violation of the absolute priority rule;

(b) the attempt by the Debtors and the SFO Noteholders
     Committee to cram down the SFO Plan over the objection of
     an overwhelming majority in number and amount of SFI
     creditors either by effecting a de facto substantive
     consolidation or by manufacturing a consenting impaired
     class at SFI by impermissibly gerrymandering and
     artificially impairing the small, contingent claim of an
     insider;

(c) the unfair discrimination effected by the
     disproportionately high allocation of the opportunity to
     participate in the rights offering that the members of the
     SFO Noteholders Committee have arrogated to themselves in
     their capacity as Backstop Purchasers at the expense of
     other SFO creditors;

(d) the Debtors' inability to meet the "good faith"
     requirements of Bankruptcy Code Section 1129(a)(3); and

(e) the SFO Plan's inclusion of impermissible third-party re
     leases of officers, directors, and the SFO Noteholders
     Committee.

On behalf of the Creditors' Committee, Kathleen P. Makowski,
Esq., at Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP, in Wilmington,
Delaware, asserts that as the SFO Plan's proponents, it is the
Debtors' burden to prove and persuade the Court, by a
preponderance of the evidence, that the SFO Plan satisfies every
applicable confirmation requirement under Bankruptcy Code
Sections 1129(a) and (b).  If the Debtors are unable to satisfy
each required element, confirmation of the Debtors' Fourth
Amended Plan must be denied, Ms. Makowski further asserts.

In a separate filing, the Creditors' Committee asks the Court to
authorize the Debtors to file exhibits to Confirmation Objections
under seal contending that certain exhibits contain confidential
commercial information, which are subject to confidentiality
agreements between various parties in this matter.

The Committee also seeks the Court's approval to exceed the 40-
page limit with respect to its objection to the Debtors' Fourth
Amended Plan.  Further, the Committee asks the Court to shorten
the period for notice of the hearing on its motions to authorize
the Debtors to file exhibits under seal and to exceed the page
limitation of its plan confirmation objection so that the Court
can convene to consider the motions on an expedited basis on
March 5, 2010, with objections, if any, to be filed prior to the
hearing.

                          Six Flags Plan

Six Flags Inc. and its units have filed a proposed plan and
disclosure statement.

In broad terms, the Plan, as thrice amended, envisions new debt
financing and a rights offering that will repay the existing
secured debt in full, while allowing enhanced recoveries for
senior unsecured noteholders at both the Six Flags Inc. and Six
Flags Operations Inc. levels.  In this general sense, the Plan
incorporates the central features of an alternative plan put
forward by a committee of noteholders and the group has indicated
it will support the Plan.

The Plan provides for a recovery of 100.0% to holders of SFTP
Prepetition Credit Agreement Claims, a 100% recovery for the
holders of all Other Secured Claims, a 100% recovery for the
holders of Unsecured Claims against all Debtors other than SFO and
SFI, 31.2% to 47.1% to holders of SFO Unsecured Claims, 3.2% to
4.8% to holders of SFI Unsecured Claims, and no recovery for
holders of Funtime, Inc. Claims, Subordinated Securities Claims

SIX FLAGS: Exclusive Solicitation Period Extended Until April 5
---------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Christopher S. Sontchi of the United States Bankruptcy
Court for the District of Delaware granted Six Flags Inc.'s
request to extend their exclusive period for soliciting
acceptances of their Plan of Reorganization to April 5, 2010.

Prior to the entry of the Order, the SFO Noteholders Informal
Committee asked the Court to deny the request filed by the
Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors seeking a March 1, 2010
mediation among the Debtors, the Creditors' Committee, the SFO
Noteholders Committee and the SFI Noteholders Committee regarding
the terms of a potential consensual plan.

Counsel for the SFO Noteholders, Howard A. Cohen, Esq., at
Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP, in Wilmington, Delaware, argues that
the Creditors' Committee's request should be denied because the
parties have irreconcilable views about value that cannot be
bridged in any mediation and, thus, ordering a mediation at this
late stage of the proceedings would simply waste time and further
estate and judicial resources, as well as distract the parties
from their preparations for the upcoming confirmation hearing
scheduled to commence in only a few weeks on March 8, 2010.

The SFO Noteholders submitted with the Court witness and exhibit
lists for the confirmation hearing on March 8, 2010.

         Debtors Address Responses to Extension Request

The Debtors, believing that an omnibus reply will assist the
Court in its consideration of the issues raised in the
Exclusivity Motion, sought and obtained the Court's approval for
leave to file the omnibus reply to exclusivity responses.

The Debtors, responding to the opposition of (i) Resilient
Capital Management, LLC, (ii) the Creditors' Committee, and (iii)
the SFI Noteholders, to the request for the extension of the
Exclusive Solicitation Period maintain that:

(1) The issue of the Debtors' statutorily-presumed right to
     have a "first shot" at confirmation already has been
     litigated and decided by the Court in the Debtors' favor --
     specifically, in extending exclusivity, the Court found
     that the Debtors had conducted their reorganization in good
     faith.

(2) The Responses of the Creditors' Committee and the SFI
     Noteholders concede as much, since both ultimately seek the
     same thing sought by the Debtors -- namely, extension of
     the Exclusive Period until after the currently-scheduled
     confirmation hearing.

(3) Having essentially acknowledged that the relief sought by
     the Debtors in the Motion is appropriate and should be
     granted, the Creditors' Committee and the SFI Noteholders'
     Responses devolve into an effort to pre-judge some future,
     hypothetical request for future extension of the Exclusive
     Periods and to launching preliminary salvos in opposition
     to confirmation.  Neither effort is availing.

The Debtors also complain that:

  -- the Creditors' Committee and the SFI Noteholders overreach
     in claiming that in granting the extension of the Exclusive
     Period to conform to the current confirmation schedule the
     Court should go further and terminate exclusivity if the
     Debtors' current plan proposal is not confirmed;

  -- the confirmation objections in the SFI Response are
     premature and so will be fully addressed by the Debtors in
     connection with confirmation; and

  -- the Court's prior ruling extending the Exclusive Period
     disposes much of the stale arguments presented in the
     Resilient Response.

The SFI Noteholders asserted that the current plan "cannot
possibly satisfy the requirements of Section 1129(a)(10) of the
Bankruptcy Code that at least one class of impaired, non-insider
unsecured creditors vote to accept the Chapter 11 plan."
Although the SFI Noteholders insist on isolating one class of
impaired claims -- the Time Warner SFI guaranty claims -- the
case law, both within and outside of the Third Circuit, makes
clear that Section 1129(a)(10)'s consenting impaired class
requirement is evaluated for the plan as a whole, and
confirmation is permissible over the dissent of a voting class of
creditors, the Debtors argue.

The Debtors assert that Resilient's allegations of conflict of
interest and breach of fiduciary duties by the management
likewise are unavailing and without basis.  The Debtors point out
that, other major constituencies, including the Prepetition
Lenders, SFO Noteholders, Creditors' Committee, and SFI
Noteholders, have supported the management and indicated that
current management contracts will be assumed.

The Debtors maintain that, in all events, it is clear that
continuation of the Exclusive Periods will advance these cases.
The Debtors say they have actively engaged their creditors from
the outset and remain in dialogue with all interested parties,
most notably the SFI Noteholders, in an effort to achieve a fully
consensual plan of reorganization among the materially interested
parties.  To be clear, the Debtors say they are convinced that
the currently proposed Fourth Amended Plan remains the best
possible fully-financed and confirmable plan available at
present.  Nevertheless, the Debtors tell the Court that they are
committed to the ongoing negotiations and, as always, are
amenable to any proposals that enhance value for their creditors
in the context of a confirmable plan.

SIX FLAGS: March 5 Hearing on Kentucky Park Leases Rejection
------------------------------------------------------------
Six Flags Inc. and its units seek the Bankruptcy Court' authority
to reject, effective March 5, 2010:

(1) a park lease agreement, dated February 21, 1996, with the
     Commonwealth of Kentucky, the State Property and
     Buildings Commission of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, the
     Finance and Administration Cabinet of the Commonwealth of
     Kentucky, and the Kentucky State Fair Board, for the
     premises known as Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom; and

(2) an assignment and assumption agreement of the park lease,
     dated October 31, 1997, between Kentucky Kingdom, Inc., and
     Debtor KKI, LLC.

Further, the Debtors seek the Court's authority to abandon any
remaining personal property at the Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom
premises that may either be of de minimis value or otherwise
burdensome to the estate, in as is, where is basis.

The State Agencies and Kentucky Kingdom, Inc., entered into the
Amended and Restated Lease Agreement for the real property known
as the Kentucky Kingdom.  On October 31, 1997, KK Inc., assigned
its interest as tenant in the Park Lease to KKI, LLC.

On January 8, 2010, the Court approved the stipulation between
Debtor KKI, LLC and the Park Landlords, whereby the parties
agreed to extend the deadline by which the Debtors had the right
to assume or reject the Park Lease from January 9, 2010, to
April 9.

Daniel J. DeFranceschi, Esq., at Richards, Layton & Finger, P.A.,
in Wilmington, Delaware, says that pursuant to the terms of the
Lease, KKI leased Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom theme park, the
current term of which will expire on December 31, 2019.  After a
review and analysis of the terms of the Lease, KKI, no longer
believes that the Lease is in the best interest of the estate.
The revenue generated by the Debtors' operations at the leased
premises is insufficient to justify the expenses incurred under
the Lease and in the operation of SFKK, according to Mr.
DeFranceschi.  The continued payments under the Lease would be
economically burdensome and would constitute an unnecessary drain
on the Debtors' assets, he adds.

According to Mr. DeFranceschi, the Debtors believe that it may be
more advantageous to the estates to abandon certain property of
de minimis value at the SFKK premises rather than incurring the
cost of its removal.

The Court will convene a hearing to consider the motion on
March 5, 2010, at 2:00 p.m., Eastern Standard Time.

SIX FLAGS: SFI Noteholders Object to Plan Confirmation
------------------------------------------------------
The Ad Hoc Committee of SFI Noteholders in Six Flags Inc.'s cases
asks the Court to deny the Debtors' Fourth Amended Plan of
Reorganization contending that the Plan fails to meet the
confirmation requirements set forth in Section 1129(a) of the
Bankruptcy Code in respect of the several of the Debtors' estates,
most particularly that of Six Flags, Inc.

More specifically, the SFI Noteholders believe the Plan cannot be
confirmed because:

  (i) it fails to provide for a legitimate accepting impaired
      class of unsecured claims against SFI's estate as required
      by Section 1129(a)(10); and

(ii) it has not been proposed in good faith as required by
      Section 1129(a)(3) given breaches of their fiduciary duty
      associated with pursuing the present Plan; and

(iii) fails the "best interest of creditors" test under
      Section 1129(a) (7) by providing SFI creditors with less
      value then they would receive in a liquidation of the SFI
      Assets.

Moreover, the SFI Noteholders asserts that even if the Court were
to find that all of the required provisions of Section 1129(a)
were satisfied, the Plan still cannot be confirmed over the SFI's
creditors' "no" votes because it discriminates unfairly against
the SFI Noteholders and is not fair and equitable as to SFI
creditors under Section 1129(b)(1) of the Bankruptcy Code.

         In "Final Stages" of Debt & Equity Financing

The SFI Noteholders said on February 25 that they are in the
final stages of funding an alternative restructuring strategy,
Reuters reported.

The SFI Noteholders have said that at $1.8 billion, they have
more than doubled their money offered to fund an alternative to
the existing Six Flags plan, the report related.  According to
Reuters, the SFI Noteholders said their plan would pay in cash
claims asserted against Six Flags Amusement Park.

The SFI Noteholders told the Court that they are in the "final
stages of finalizing" debt and equity financing for their
reorganization plan for the Debtors, Bloomberg reported.  The
Noteholders noted that Judge Sontchi has said having financing
commitments behind a plan at a higher valuation would be a "key
factor" in his decision about which plan to approve, the report
said.

Incumbent management of Six Flags evidently will lose their jobs
if the SFI Noteholders succeed in taking over the theme-park
operator by winning confirmation of their competing
reorganization plan, the report said, noting that the Noteholders
have stated that they have identified a "highly experienced,
industry leading management team" to take over once their plan is
approved and implemented.  The SFI Noteholders further disclosed
that they have identified a highly experienced management team to
take over the theme park management once their plan is approved
and implemented, Bloomberg reported.

                           H Partners

H Partners Management LLC, on behalf of certain managed funds,
and Bay Harbour Management LLC, on behalf of certain managed
funds, each holder of both SFO Notes and SFI Notes, ask the Court
to deny the Debtors' Fourth Amended Plan.

H Partners and Bay Harbour contend that the Plan contemplates a
brazen, unjustifiable transfer of excess value to a select group
of SFO Noteholders purportedly for backstopping the rights
offering under the Debtors' Plan.

The Debtors' Plan provides that only "Accepting SFO Noteholders"
may participate in the Rights Offering and the Plan treats
accepting SFO Noteholders differently from, and discriminates
against, rejecting and non-voting SFO Noteholders in the same
class, H Partners and Bay Harbour complain.

According to Anthony M. Sacullo, Esq., at Ciardi Ciardi & Astin,
in Wilmington, Delaware, the Debtors' Plan provides that only
those SFO Noteholders who vote in favor of the Debtors' Plan may
participate in the Rights Offering.  This, he complains,
discriminates against SFO Noteholders that reject or don't vote
on the Debtors' Plan, in direct contravention of Section
1123(a)(4) of the Bankruptcy Code, which exemplifies equality of
treatment.  This discriminatory treatment alone makes the
Debtors' Plan facially unconfirmable, he tells the Court.

Mr. Sacullo adds that offering special treatment to individual
creditors -- in the form of the right to participate in the
Rights Offering -- for voting in favor of the Debtors' Plan is

                          Six Flags Plan

Six Flags Inc. and its units have filed a proposed plan and
disclosure statement.

In broad terms, the Plan, as thrice amended, envisions new debt
financing and a rights offering that will repay the existing
secured debt in full, while allowing enhanced recoveries for
senior unsecured noteholders at both the Six Flags Inc. and Six
Flags Operations Inc. levels.  In this general sense, the Plan
incorporates the central features of an alternative plan put
forward by a committee of noteholders and the group has indicated
it will support the Plan.

The Plan provides for a recovery of 100.0% to holders of SFTP
Prepetition Credit Agreement Claims, a 100% recovery for the
holders of all Other Secured Claims, a 100% recovery for the
holders of Unsecured Claims against all Debtors other than SFO and
SFI, 31.2% to 47.1% to holders of SFO Unsecured Claims, 3.2% to
4.8% to holders of SFI Unsecured Claims, and no recovery for
holders of Funtime, Inc. Claims, Subordinated Securities Claims
and Preconfirmation Equity Interests in SFI.

reorganization plan is available for free at:

SPANSION INC: Committee Supports Noteholders Financing Offer
------------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors in Spansion Inc.'s
case filed with the Bankruptcy Court, on February 19, 2010, a
statement of position with respect to:

  (i) confirmation of the Debtors' Second Amended Joint Plan of
      Reorganization dated February 8, 2010;

(ii) competing rights offers; and

(iii) the Ad Hoc Committee of Convertible Noteholders'
      Emergency Motion for Order (A) Vacating Order Approving
      Debtors' Disclosure Statement and Adjourning Confirmation
      Hearing and (B) Directing Appointment of Trustee
      or Examiner.

The Creditors Committee tells the Court that it does not object
to confirmation of the Plan at this time, as it has resolved many
of its concerns, including corporate governance concerns
addressed through the selection of specific directors.  The
Creditors Committee notes that neither does it support granting
the relief sought in the motion to vacate the disclosure
statement order filed by the Ad Hoc Committee of Convertible
Noteholders.  Moreover, the Creditors Committee says it continues
to take no position with respect to the current intra-creditor
dispute regarding valuation of Reorganized Spansion.

According to the Creditors Committee, an issue has arisen very
recently that is tangential to confirmation of the Plan but that,
if acted upon, would improve the recoveries of general unsecured
creditors by at least $40 million.  The Plan currently
contemplates a Backstop Rights Purchase Agreement sponsored by
Silver Lake Sumeru, L.P.  Recently, however, the Ad Hoc Committee
has submitted its own fully-subscribed equity financing
agreement.

The Creditors Committee tells the Court that the choice of which
of the two competing rights offerings is pursued by the Debtors
has a material economic impact on holders of general unsecured
claims in Classes 5A, 5B and 5C.  If the Debtors consummate the
Ad Hoc Committee Rights Offering rather than the Silver Lake
Rights Offering, general unsecured creditors will receive in
excess of $40 million in incremental value, the Creditors
Committee asserts.  Which rights offering is consummated has no
bearing on confirmation of the Plan; however, it does impact the
recoveries of the Debtors' unsecured creditors, the Creditors
Committee adds.

Thus, the Creditors Committee asks the Court to direct the
Debtors to terminate the Silver Lake Rights Offering and instead
to consummate the Ad Hoc Committee Rights Offering.

                       Debtors Talk Back

The Debtors assert that the Creditor Committee's position is
naive, inherently risky and at odds with the requirements of the
Bankruptcy Code and fundamental principles of due process.
Instead, the Debtors believe that accepting the Ad Hoc
Committee's Proposal will delay and likely derail the current
confirmation proceedings, lead to a proliferation of litigation
and a further fracturing of creditor constituencies and benefit
no one but the professionals retained in their bankruptcy cases.

The Debtors maintain that after considering the Ad Hoc
Committee's Proposal and discussing it with their creditor
constituencies, they have determined that the benefits, if any,
to their estates and stakeholders, taken as a whole, from that
Proposal do not come close to justifying the risk to all parties
of jeopardizing the Debtors' reorganization at this late stage of
their bankruptcy cases.  Moreover, the Debtors say that the plain
language of the Plan and the Disclosure Statement do not
contemplate or permit the Debtors to accept that Proposal in lieu
of the Rights Offering.

Accordingly, the Debtors tell the Court that they cannot and will
not support the Creditor Committee's proposal to abandon the
Rights Offering in favor of the Ad Hoc Proposal.

In a separate filing, the informal group of certain holders of
11.25% Senior Notes due 2016, and the informal group of holders
of trade claims separately filed joinders to the Debtors'
response.

         Blackstone Report Improper, says Ad Hoc Committee

As previously reported, the Informal Group proposed to offer The
Blackstone Group expert testimony in support of the enterprise
value of Spansion during the confirmation hearing.

The Ad Hoc Committee of Convertible Noteholders consisting of
certain holders of 2.25% Exchangeable Senior Subordinated
Debentures due 2016, avers that it would be improper to permit
any representative of Blackstone to testify as an expert witness
on behalf of the Informal Group because the terms of Blackstone's
engagement to testify effectively creates a contingent fee
arrangement that necessarily taints any and all testimony or
evidence offered by Blackstone, and eliciting that testimony or
evidence from Blackstone by the Informal Group's counsel would be
ethically improper.

Although not directly styled as a traditional contingent fee
arrangement, the amorphous and undefined nature of the
arrangement by which Blackstone has agreed to testify has
effectively created a situation in which the question of whether,
when and in what form Blackstone will be paid for some or all of
its services is potentially contingent on the outcome of the
Debtors' cases, the Ad Hoc Committee asserts.

In response to objection, the Informal Group contends that
Blackstone does not and did not have a contingency fee or success
fee arrangement for its services.  Indeed, the Informal Group
avers, the Ad Hoc Committee's most recent accusations wholly
ignore Michael Genereux's testimony that Blackstone's fees were
not contingent and are completely at odds with the retention
letter's plain language proving that Blackstone's fees are fixed.

deadline for expert identification and expert report disclosure.

SPANSION INC: Further Modifies Reorganization Plan
--------------------------------------------------
Spansion Inc. and its debtor affiliates delivered to the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware a further modified
Second Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization on February 19, 2010.

In accordance with the February 19 Amended Plan, effective as of

A redlined copy of the February 19 Amended Plan is available for

The February 19 Plan notes that the Debtors contemplate that
additional changes may be made to the Plan to reflect the Court's
ruling on the Motion of Spansion Japan Limited for an order (i)
determining the proper classification of its rejection damages
claim and (ii) requiring the Debtors to establish a reserve under
the Plan for distributions on account of its rejection damages
claim.

The Debtors are engaged in discussions with Spansion Japan
Limited and other parties-in-interest regarding these changes,
states the February 19 Plan.

                  February 23 Amended Plan

After receiving informal comments from certain parties-in-
interest, the Debtors filed another further modified 2nd Amended
Plan on February 23, 2010.

Among the amendments to the Plan are:

  (a) The Debtors eliminated Class 5D which is Spansion Japan
      Limited's Rejection Damages Claim.

      any Administrative Expense Claim in excess of $250,000
      other than, among others, the Spansion Japan

      any Administrative Expense Claim of Spansion Japan Limited

      Disputed Claims.

A redlined copy of the February 23 Plan is available for free at:

Subsequently, the Debtors delivered to the Court a modified
proposed confirmation order, a full-text copy of which is
available for free at:

      http://bankrupt.com/misc/Spansion_Feb23ConOrd.pdf

The Modified Proposed Confirmation Order reflects, among other

      Japan Settlement Order.  Both the Agreement and the Order
      will remain valid and enforceable in all respects, and the
      obligations in connection with both will not be
      discharged, released or impaired.  In the event of
      controversy or inconsistency, the terms of the Spansion
      Japan Settlement Order or Spansion Japan Definitive
      Agreements will control.

  (b) Nothing contained in the Confirmation Order will preclude
      Spansion Japan Limited from filing, on or before
      March 12, 2010, an amendment to its Claim No. 1165 for
      rejection damages arising from the Debtors' rejection of
      that the Second Amended and Restated Foundry Agreement
      dated March 30, 2007, in a liquidated maximum amount for
      all rejection damages asserted in that Claim No. 1165.
      The Debtors, the Reorganized Debtors and the Claims Agent
      reserve all rights to contest and defend such amendment,
      including on the grounds that the amendment is
      impermissible or untimely.

  (c) Claim Nos. 6, 56,141, 166, 209, 226, 735, 776, 1123, and
      1150 must be filed and served on Longacre Opportunity Fund
      or the then record Holders of those claims no later than
      120 days after the date the Confirmation Order is entered.

SPANSION INC: Has Deal With Bank of America on Claims Treatment
---------------------------------------------------------------
Spansion Inc. and Bank of America, N.A., delivered to the Court a
stipulation for the treatment of Class 1 Claims in aid of
confirmation of the Second Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization.

On September 19, 2005, Spansion LLC, certain financial
institutions and Bank of America, as administrative agent for the
Lenders, entered into that certain Credit Agreement whereby the
Lenders agreed to provide financial accommodations including a
revolving line of credit for loans and letters of credit.  In
order to secure Spansion's obligations to Bank of America and the
Lenders under the Credit Agreement, Spansion and the Lenders
entered into that certain Security Agreement, pursuant to which
Spansion granted to Bank of America for the benefit of the
Lenders a security interest in virtually all of Spansion's assets
including:

  (a) a first in priority lien in its cash and accounts
      receivable;

  (b) 100% of the capital stock or membership interests in
      Spansion's domestic wholly-owned subsidiaries;

  (c) up to 65% of the capital stock membership interest of
      Spansion's foreign wholly-owned subsidiaries; and

  (d) a second in priority lien in Spansion's inventory.

As of the record date for voting on the Plan, the Lenders
asserted a claim against the Debtors totaling $12,249,451
comprised of:

  (1) Reimbursement for outstanding stand-by letters of credit
      amounting to $1,541,400;

  (2) Outstanding amounts under credit cards issued to or for
      the benefit of the Debtors for $150,000;

  (3) Reimbursement for any indemnification obligations to Banc
      of America Leasing Capital LLC on account of the equipment
      leases between BALC and the Debtors in the stipulated loss
      value of $10,016,133;

  (4) Financial accommodations made to Spansion (Thailand)
      Limited for $541,918; and

  (5) Interest, fees, expenses, reimbursements,
      indemnifications, and other obligations as may be due by
      the Debtors to Bank of America and the Lenders.

In addition to their other collateral, Bank of America and its
affiliates hold:

  * approximately $2,600,000 to secure all of the obligations;
  * $300,000 to secure the Credit Card Obligation; and
  * approximately $541,918 to secure the "Thailand Obligation."

Bank of America and the Debtors are currently negotiating the
terms of a revolving credit facility pursuant to which Bank of
America would provide to the Debtors financial accommodations
including a revolving line of credit for loans and letters of
credit commencing upon the effective date of the Plan.

Accordingly, the Debtors and Bank of America stipulate that:

  (a) the Letter of Credit Obligation will be included as part
      of the Debtors' obligations under the Exit Revolver
      Facility;

  (b) the Credit Card Obligation will be included as part of the
      Debtors' obligations under the Exit Revolver Facility;

  (c) the Thailand Obligations will be included as part of the
      Debtors' obligations under the Exit Revolver Facility;

  (d) the Other Obligations will, at Bank of America's sole
      discretion, be satisfied from the Primary Cash Collateral
      or will be included as part of the Debtors' obligations
      under the Exit Revolver Facility.

The parties agree to release each other from all claims, demands
and causes of action directly or indirectly related to the Credit
Agreement, the Security Agreement, the Guarantees, and Preference
Claims, whether or not those claims, demands and causes of action
are known or suspected to exist, including without limitation the
Preference Claims.

SPANSION INC: Noteholders Want Examiner or Trustee
--------------------------------------------------
The Ad Hoc Committee of Convertible Noteholders, consisting of
certain 2.25% Exchangeable Senior Subordinated Debentures due
2016 issued by Spansion LLC, tells the Court that recent
communications to the Debtors' Board of Directors and the Senior
Noteholder Group and a self-styled "Trade Claims Group" relating
to the proposed Silver Lake Rights Offering highlight the need
for the immediate appointment of an examiner or trustee pursuant
to Section 1104 of the Bankruptcy Code.

Citigroup Financial Products, Inc., and Fortress Investment Group
comprise the Trade Claims Group.

According to Mark E. Felger, Esq., at Cozen O'Connor, in
Wilmington, Delaware, counsel to the Ad Hoc Committee, the
problem is exemplified by the treatment of the largely disputed
ChipMos Technologies claim, which is now owned by the leaders of
the so-called "Trade Group Claims" that opposes the Ad Hoc
Committee's Rights Offering.  Mr. Felger asserts that the
proposed Silver Lake Rights Offering, by its terms, was to be
available for subscription only by holders of allowed claims, not
disputed claims.  Mr. Felger relates that, upon his information
and belief, the single largest subscriber to the Silver Lake
Rights Offering is the holder of the largely disputed ChipMos
Claim amounting to $305 million.

As previously reported, the members of the Ad Hoc Committee made
an equity financing proposal to the Debtors for $112,375,000.

STATION CASINOS: Extends Deal With PropCo Until May 12
------------------------------------------------------
Station Casinos Inc. previously obtained approval from the
Bankruptcy Court of an interim three-month settlement with FCP
PropCo LLC in connection with leases for four hotel casinos.

Station Casinos leases the casinos from debtor-affiliate Propco;
and the leased hotels are in turn operated by SCI and non-debtor
operating units.  The issue of the master lease has been a point
of contention among major stakeholders.  Lenders to the operating
companies contend the leases are in reality disguised financing
arrangements while lenders to PropCo contend they are bona fide
leases.  The PropCo's mortgage lenders assert that the contractual
relationship between the parties was structured as a lessor/lessee
because SCI would be forced to decide either to pay the scheduled
rent or reject the lease in its entirety.  Lenders to SCI said it
won't approve a cash collateral budget that provided for the
payment of rent under the master lease beginning in December 2009.

Station Casinos, Inc. and FCP PropCo LLC now ask Judge Gregg W.
Zive of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Nevada to
(i) approve a First Amendment to Amended and Restated Master Lease
Compromise Agreement between SCI and PropCo and (ii) authorize SCI
and PropCo to abide by the terms of the Compromise Agreement as
amended by the Compromise Amendment and perform their respective
obligations thereunder.

A full-text copy of the Compromise Amendment is available for free
at http://bankrupt.com/misc/SCI_CompromiseAmendment.pdf

The parties entered into the Compromise Amendment to amend in
certain respects the Compromise Agreement approved by the Court on
December 11, 2009, pursuant to the Compromise Agreement Order.

Oscar Garza, Esq., at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP, in Los Angeles,
California, relates that since December 11, 2009, extensive,
inclusive and virtually continuous negotiations over the terms of
a plan of reorganization for the Debtors have taken place.
Substantial and tangible progress has been made in those
discussions, including exchange of detailed term sheets and the
commencement of drafting of plan documentation, Mr. Garza says.

Indeed, Mr. Garza adds, the best evidence of the progress that has
been achieved to date is the uniform agreement of all major
stakeholders, including the Debtors, the Official Committee of
Unsecured Creditors, the Mortgage Lenders and the Required Lenders
to allow the Compromise Agreement to remain in effect for an
additional two month period to permit the parties to continue to
advance the plan process.

As was the case in the original Compromise Agreement, because of
the competing interests of the SCI and PropCo estates,
responsibility for the independence for the representation of
PropCo's interests in connection with the Compromise Amendment was
assumed by the two independent members of PropCo's board, Messrs.
Robert White and Robert Kors, who were advised by PropCo's
separate counsel, Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP.

The Compromise Amendment modifies the Compromise Agreement in this
manner:

  (a) The Deferral Period during which SCI may pay Reduced Rent
      is extended by two months, from March 12, 2010, to and
      through May 12, 2010;

  (b) The amount of Restaurant Excess Cap Ex for March 2010 and
      April 2010 is $2,200,000 to account for the incurrence of
      an additional two months of budgeted construction expense;

  (c) An additional two month cap ex true up is provided to
      account for the additional two months of cap ex that will
      be included in the computation of Reduced Rent; and

  (d) The deadline by which SCI must assume or reject the Master
      Lease is extended from March 12, 2010, up to and including
      May 12, 2010, to accommodate the additional Deferral
      Period.

Mr. Garza avers that the the modification of the Compromise
Agreement to provide an additional two-month period for cash
payment of Reduced Rent under the Master Lease on the existing
terms and conditions represents a reasonable exercise of business
judgment.

Robert Kors, independent director of FCP PropCo LLC, and Richard
J. Haskins, executive vice president, general counsel, and
secretary of Station Casinos, Inc., filed separate declarations in
support of the Motion.

The Debtors also sought and obtained from the Court an order
hearing the Motion on March 2, 2010, at 2:00 p.m.  Objections to
the Motion are due on March 1, 2010, at 4:00 p.m.

                       Parties Stipulate

In support of the Motion, SCI and PropCo also submitted to the
Court a fully executed stipulation approving the Compromise
Amendment pursuant to which: (a) German American Capital
Corporation and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., in their capacity as
lenders to PropCo under the Mortgage Loan Agreement; (b) Deutsche
Bank Trust Company Americas, as administrative agent for the
Lenders party to the SCI Credit Agreement; and (c) the Official
Committee of Unsecured Creditors, acting by and through its
counsel Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP, have
confirmed that they have no objection to the Compromise Amendment
and entry of an order approving the Compromise Amendment.

The Debtors also filed with the Court an erratum attaching the
signature page of David J. Crescenzi and Mark B. Cohen of Deutsche
Bank Trust Company Americas in the Stipulation.  The Debtors were
granted permission to file the stipulation with out the Messrs.
Crescenzi and Cohen's executed signature.

               Creditors' Committee's Statement

The Creditors' Committee stated that it does not object to the
entry of an order granting the request sought in the Motion.
However, the Committee told the Court that it is deeply concerned
that the Debtors' overly broad characterizations of the plan of
reorganization negotiations and other statements are misleading to
the Court and the general public regarding the involvement of the
Committee in negotiations and the scope of the Amendment.

Accordingly, the Committee filed a statement with the Court to
make certain clarifications.

The Committee related that as of March 1, 2010, it (i) has not
been a party to the plan of reorganization negotiations referenced
in the Motion, (ii) has not received any of the referenced term
sheets, (iii) has not received the drafts of the plan
documentation, and (iv) does not know any more about the terms of
the "substantial and tangible progress" that has been made other
than what was disclosed in the Debtors' Securities and Exchange
Commission Schedule 8-K filing dated February 25, 2010.

The Committee revealed that it has been excluded from the
negotiations by and among the Debtors, the Mortgage Lenders, the
Prepetition Agent and the steering committee of Prepetition
Lenders concerning a plan of reorganization since December 11,
2009.

The Committee said it has not seen any of the "detailed term
sheets" or "plan documentation" referred to by the Debtors,
notwithstanding the Committee's requests to the Debtors to review
and respond to the documents.

After repeated requests by the Committee, the business principals
of the Debtors have agreed to meet with the Committee on March 5,
2010.  As of March 1, the Committee said it is still in the dark
about the agreements that are alleged to have been reached.

The Committee noted that the failure of the Debtors to allow the
Committee to play a constructive role in plan negotiations is
inconsistent with the Court's directive that the Committee be "a
meaningful participant" in plan negotiations.

STATION CASINOS: GCR Gaming Wants GV Ranch Case Dismissed
---------------------------------------------------------
GCR Gaming LLC asked the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Nevada to dismiss the Chapter 11 case of GV Ranch Station Inc. as
a bad faith filing.

GCR Gaming's counsel, Marc E. Kasowitz, Esq., at Kasowitz, Benson,
Torres, & Friedman LLP, in New York, alleges that executives of
Station Casinos, Inc., which is 50% owner of Green Valley Ranch,
breached their fiduciary duties, in part, by directing high-stake
gambles at Green Valley to other casinos that Station Casinos owed
solely.

According to Mr. Kasowitz, in late December 2009, GCR first
learned of a long-running scheme implemented by SCI to
systematically divert customers, business opportunities, and other
assets from Green Valley Ranch.  GCR Gaming also alleges that GV
Ranch Station sabotaged Green Valley Ranch's marketing efforts in
order to undercut its ability to compete effectively with the SCI-
Owned Casinos.  Mr. Kasowitz added that the scheme included, but
was not limited to, GV Ranch Station's specific, individualized
efforts to lure Green Valley Ranch's "high rollers" 23 to Red
Rock, a competing, 100% Owned Casino; ordering Green Valley Ranch
to terminate a highly successful marketing program; all the way
down to instructing the food purveyor to deliver the "prime" cuts
of meat to Red Rock, while sending Green Valley Ranch the
"garbage."

The Las Vegas Review-Journal said Station Casinos was "extremely
disappointed the Greenspun family, which owns GCR Gaming, has
joined the fray of out-of-the-money constituents seeking to bring
meritless lawsuits in connection with our bankruptcy proceedings."

In a statement, Station Casinos said the "threatened lawsuit is
nothing more than a desperate attempt and improper attempt by the
Greenspuns to gain leverage against Station in our ongoing
restructuring discussions with Green Valley Ranch's creditors. We
intend to vigorously contest the Greenspuns' baseless claims," the
report adds.

Marc Kasowitz, GCR Gaming's New York City-based attorney, said
Station Casinos' actions left the Greenspuns with no choice but to
file the lawsuit, the report adds.

In its Motion, GCR Gaming also asked the Court to remove the
Station Casinos affiliate from the joint-venture partnership and
allow the Greenspun affiliate to sue Station Casinos outside of
bankruptcy court.  GCR Gaming contended that its partner
"improperly attempted to forestall the consequences of its
wrongdoing through the bad-faith filing of its Chapter 11
petition."

STATION CASINOS: Reaches Deal With Lenders, To File Reorg. Plan
---------------------------------------------------------------
Station Casinos, Inc., said on February 24 that it has reached an
agreement in principle for the comprehensive reorganization of the
Company with certain of its key mortgage lenders holding the debt
secured by  Red Rock Casino Resort Spa, Palace Station Hotel &
Casino, Boulder Station Hotel & Casino, and Sunset Station Hotel &
Casino.   The Company said it is also making significant progress
on its restructuring discussions with other creditor groups.  The
Company filed its chapter 11 reorganization cases last July 2009
and has been in negotiations with lenders and other constituents
for almost a year and a half.  The Company anticipates filing a
plan of reorganization this March and achieving confirmation of
that plan during the summer.

As part of the proposed reorganization, the Company expects to
significantly reduce its secured and unsecured debt and also would
have substantial liquidity in the form of new revolving credit
facilities and certain equity infusions.  Following the
consummation of the reorganization, the management of the Company
would continue to be led by Frank Fertitta and members of the
current management team.  In addition, Frank and Lorenzo Fertitta
would make a significant reinvestment in the equity of the
reorganized Company along side certain other current creditors and
investors in the Company.  Assuming definitive documentation is
agreed to by all parties, the Company expects formal announcement
of the proposed reorganization transactions, including a
description of the material terms and conditions thereof, to be
forthcoming in the next three weeks.

The Company clarified that the press release is not intended to
be, and should not in any way be construed as, a solicitation of
votes on the Company's reorganization plan which has not yet been
filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court.  The plan will be filed
together with a proposed disclosure statement, which should not be
relied on for any purpose until a determination by the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court is made that the proposed disclosure statement
contains adequate information, as required by the U.S. Bankruptcy
Code.  Following Bankruptcy Court approval of the disclosure
statement and related voting solicitation procedures, the Company
will solicit acceptances of the plan and seek its confirmation by
the Bankruptcy Court.  There can be no assurance that the plan
acceptances or confirmation will be obtained.

TRIBUNE CO: Seeks Dismissal of New River Chapter 11 Case
--------------------------------------------------------
Tribune Co. and its units ask the Court to dismiss the Chapter 11
case of co-debtor New River Center Maintenance Association, Inc.,
nunc pro tunc to the Petition Date.  The Debtors also seek the
Court's directive for the use of an amended caption in their
cases.

New River is a common maintenance association for a mixed use
commercial and residential development in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida,
in which the various property owners are the members.  One member
is Riverwalk Center I JV, a partnership wholly owned by Debtors
Sun-Sentinel Company and Tribune Company, whose sole asset is a
parking lot in New River Center used by Sun-Sentinel Company.

The Debtors tell the Court that they recently received
communications from counsel to New River, who questioned New
River's status as a Chapter 11 debtor and asked that the filing be
dismissed.  According to the Debtors, those communications
prompted them to review their records and undertake extensive
factual diligence.  As a result, the Debtors have determined that
the petition for New River should in fact be dismissed.

The Debtors have determined that Riverwalk only owns 25% minority
member interest in New River, an interest insufficient to cause
the bankruptcy filing by New River.

The Debtors ask the Court to direct the use of an amended caption
that has been revised to exclude New River in the footnoted list
of Debtors following dismissal of the case.

TRIBUNE CO: Wantsto Modify Ernst & Young Scope of Work
------------------------------------------------------
Tribune Co. and its units seek the Court's authority to modify the
scope of employment of Ernst & Young LLP for the limited purpose
of ensuring that the scope of its retention encompasses valuation
services for certain Federal Communication Commission licenses,
held by the Debtors, which valuations are to be done as of
November 30, 2009.  The Debtors tell the Court that those services
are a continuation of similar services previously performed by
Ernst & Young under the Application for 2008 valuation services;
however, the Debtors anticipate that the 2009 valuation services
will be more limited and less costly than those already authorized
by the Court.

Specifically, under the supplemental application, Ernst & Young
will assist the Debtors' management with their impairment testing,
in accordance with SFAS 142, by determining the value of the FCC
Licenses as of November 30, 2009.

The Debtors seek to retain Ernst & Young to perform these services
relating to the 2009 valuation:

  (a) interviews with Tribune management concerning the nature
      of the FCC Licenses;

  (b) consideration of any business plans, future performance
      estimates or budgets relating to the FCC Licenses;

  (c) consideration of applicable economic, industry, and

TRIBUNE CO: Wants Until July 1 to Remove Civil Actions
------------------------------------------------------
Tribune Company and its debtor affiliates ask Judge Carey of the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware to further
extend through July 1, 2010, their deadline to file notices of
removal of claims and causes of action related to their Chapter 11
cases with respect to claims and causes of action pending as of
the Petition Date.

Given the pending expiration of the Debtors' removal periods on
March 3, 2010, the Debtors intend that the operation of the Rule
9006-2 of the Local Rule of Bankruptcy Practice and Procedure of
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware will extend
the time during which the Debtors may remove actions from the
March 3 expiration until the conclusion of the hearing of the
Motion.  The Debtors request that the Motion be heard on March 23,
2010.

The Debtors tell the Court that they have been engaged on an
ongoing basis since the Petition Date in:

  (a) stabilizing their businesses;

  (b) developing a multi-year business plan;

  (c) conducting extensive operational, financial and legal
      analysis relating to their businesses and a proposed plan
      of reorganization;

  (d) undertaking a number of significant transactions with the
      approval of the Bankruptcy Court; and

  (e) accomplishing most of the "case administration" tasks in
      their Chapter 11 cases.

The Debtors assert that their efforts have resulted in substantial
progress toward the development and filing of a Plan that would
resolve their bankruptcy cases.  The Debtors add that they have
made significant progress in addressing the prepetition claims
against their estates, with more than 15 omnibus objections having
already filed with and sustained essentially in their entireties
by the Bankruptcy Court.

"Given the magnitude of these tasks, together with the substantial
existing efforts required to manage the Debtors' business
enterprise, the demands on the Debtors' personnel and
professionals have been exceptional," says Kate J. Stickles, Esq.,
at Cole, Schotz, Meisel, Forman & Leonard, P.A., in Wilmington,
Delaware.  "The Debtors accordingly have a legitimate need for
additional time to review their outstanding litigation matters and
evaluate whether those matters should properly be removed pursuant
to Bankruptcy Rule 9027," she adds.

Section 1452 of the Bankruptcy Code and Rule 9027 of the Federal
Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure govern the removal of claims and
causes of action pending as of the Petition Date.

TROPICANA ENTERTAINMENT: Adamar Wants to Reject 63 Contracts
------------------------------------------------------------
As previously reported, on November 4, 2009, the Court approved
the Amended and Restated Purchase Agreement for (i) the sale of
substantially all of Adamar of New Jersey, Inc., and its
affiliate, Manchester Mall, Inc.'s assets, free and clear of all
liens, claims, encumbrances and interests, and (ii) the assumption
and assignment of additional executory contracts and unexpired
leases in relation to the Purchase Agreement.

In preparation for the closing on the Amended Purchase Agreement,
and after a review of finances and operations, the NJ Debtors
determined that some of the Acquired Contracts are unnecessary to
their continued business operations, are disadvantageous or
economically unfavorable as currently structured, Ilana Volkov,
Esq., at Cole, Schotz, Meisel, Forman & Leonard, P.A., in
Hackensack, New Jersey, relates.

By this motion, the NJ Debtors seek to reject:

  (i) 23 contracts that they determine are no longer necessary
      to their continued business operations, effective as of
      February 12, 2010; and

(ii) 40 contracts that they determine are disadvantageous or
      economically unfavorable as currently structured on the
      earlier to occur of entry of an order granting the
      Contract Rejection Motion or February 26, 2010.

A list of the Unnecessary Contracts is available for free at:

http://bankrupt.com/misc/TropiA_UnnecessaryContracts021210.pdf

A list of the Disadvantageous Contracts is available for free at:

http://bankrupt.com/misc/TropiA_DisadvantageousContracts021210.pdf

Approval of nunc pro tunc rejection of the Contracts is
appropriate, Ms. Volkov asserts.  She further emphasizes that the
balance of equities favors granting the Debtors' request for a
retroactive effective date of rejection because, among other
things:

  (a) the Unnecessary Contracts provide no benefit to the
      estates as the Debtors are no longer utilizing the
      services specified in those contracts, and the Debtors
      will be forced to incur unnecessary administrative
      expenses for those services; and

  (b) with respect to the Disadvantageous Contracts, if the
      Rejection Motion is not heard before February 26, the
      Debtors will incur unnecessary administrative expenses
      commencing on March 1, 2010, on account of contracts that
      are economically unfavorable.  This would be harmful to
      the Debtors and their estates.

Pursuant to the Amended Purchase Agreement, the Debtors and the
representative for the steering committee of certain "Secured
Parties" have agreed to amend the list of Acquired Contracts to
eliminate the 63 Contracts the Debtors seek to be rejected.

                           IGT Objects

International Gaming Technology objects to the Contract Rejection
Motion, asserting that the NJ Debtors have not articulated any
specific reason why the IGT Contracts are disadvantageous.  In
the alternative, IGT seeks that any order authorizing the
rejection of the IGT Contracts be required compliance with
applicable New Jersey law.

IGT supplies gaming machines to the NJ Debtors.  A June 12, 2009
Court order approved the assumption and assignment of the IGT
Contracts to purchaser of the NJ Debtors' assets.  Subsequently,
the Court entered a consent order on August 24, 2009, fixing the
required cure amounts with respect to the IGT Contracts.  By
entering into the August 2009 Consent Order, the NJ Debtors
signaled their continuing intention to assume and assign the IGT
Contracts, IGT points out.

John P. Leon, Esq., at Subranni Ostrove & Zauber, in Marlton, New
Jersey, tells the Court that the NJ Debtors seem to forget that
just seven months ago, they entered into a revised pricing
addendum with IGT with respect to the IGT Contracts for "Wide
Area Progressive Machines."  The addendum extended the term of
those contracts and amended the pricing terms, he notes.

Mr. Leon also argues that the Rejection Motion fails to address
requirements of New Jersey law and the New Jersey Casino Control
Commission with respect to the gaming machines subject of the IGT
Contracts.  Some of those machines pay out "progressive
jackpots."  He notes that New Jersey law prohibits the
simultaneous removal of those kinds of machines from the NJ
Debtors' premises, as they are part of a Wide Area Progress
System, in which more than one casino participates.

                         *     *     *

Judge Wizmur permits the NJ Debtors to reject (i) the Unnecessary
Contracts nunc pro tunc to February 12, 2010, and (ii) the
Disadvantageous Contracts as of February 23, 2010.

Proofs of claim, if any, arising from the rejection of the
Contracts should be filed no later than March 25, 2010, with
Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC, or the counterparties to the
Contracts will be forever barred from asserting claims against
the Debtors and their estates.

TROPICANA ENTERTAINMENT: Adamar Has Cash Access Until March 31
--------------------------------------------------------------
Adamar of New Jersey, Inc., and its affiliate, Manchester Mall,
Inc., sought and obtained an order from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the District of New Jersey for an extension of their use of
the Cash Collateral, through and including the earlier of (i) the
sale closing date of the Tropicana Atlantic City assets, or (ii)
March 31, 2010.

The Court previously gave the New Jersey Debtors authority to
access the Cash Collateral through February 28, 2010.

The New Jersey Debtors tell the Court that they need continued
access to the Cash Collateral to be able to pay their
postpetition ordinary and necessary business expenses and fund
the administration of their Chapter 11 cases, while the closing
date of the sale of all of their assets is pending.

As previously reported, the New Jersey Debtors filed for
bankruptcy to effectuate the sale of all of their assets pursuant
to Section 363 of the Bankruptcy Code and to enable retired
Supreme Court Justice Gary S. Stein, as trustee/conservator of NJ
Debtor Adamar of New Jersey, Inc., to comply with applicable
statutory requirements and rulings of the New Jersey Casino
Control Commission to sell the stock or assets of Adamar.  A
group of investor led by Carl Icahn won the bid to acquire the
Adamar Assets and the parties entered into a Purchase Agreement,
as amended.  The parties though need to obtain certain regulatory
approvals and waivers before a closing on the sale transaction
can occur.

The NJ Commission has consented to an extension of the sale
deadline of the Adamar Assets several times, with the current
deadline set for June 4, 2010.

The sale parties have also amended the Purchase Agreement to
provide that the outside date by which the transactions
contemplated in the Purchase Agreement must close is extended
through March 31, 2010.

Against this backdrop, the Prepetition Agent for the Debtors'
Prepetition Credit Facility, at the direction of the "Required
Lenders," and the Steering Committee have consented to an
extension of the Cash Collateral Use on terms set forth in a
stipulation and consent order entered on February 22, 2010.

The Stipulating Parties consent to the Debtors' continued use of
the Cash Collateral in accordance with a budget for the four-week
period ending March 31, 2010.

A full-text copy of the Cash Collateral Use Extension Stipulation
and the prepared March 2010 budget are available for free at:

W.R. GRACE: Canada Courts Gives Final Nod for ZAI Settlement
------------------------------------------------------------
W.R. Grace & Co., Inc., informed the Bankruptcy Court and parties-
in-interest on February 25, 2010, that the order approving the
Amended and Restated Canadian ZAI Minutes of Settlement has been
entered as a final order.

On December 13, 2009, The Honorable Mr. Justice Geoffrey B.
Morawetz of Ontario Superior Court of Justice, who is overseeing
the reorganization proceedings of Grace Canada, Inc., approved the
Amended Minutes, which was entered into on November 16, 2009, by
Debtors and the claimants with respect to the Canadian Zonolite
Attic Insulations, Theodore L. Freedman, Esq., at Kirkland & Ellis
LLP, in New York, relates.

Subsequently, the Debtors amended their Joint Chapter 11 Plan of
Reorganization to incorporate the entered a formal order setting
forth his reasons for granting the "Canadian Approval Order.

The Amended and Restated Minutes, which outlines the procedures
and funding terms for resolving and paying Canadian ZAI Claims,
superseded and replaced the original Minutes of Settlement among
the parties dated September 2, 2008, which expired by its own
terms, says Mr. Freedman.

The Attorney General of Canada, on behalf of the Canadian
government, alleged that the Debtors and the representative
counsel for the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act restated the
Original Minutes without including the Crown as a party.

On February 19, 2010, the Parties appeared before the Court of
Appeal for Ontario on the Crown's request for leave to appeal the
Canadian Approval Order.  At that time, the Court of Appeal
determined that the test for leave to appeal had not been met and,
accordingly, denied the Crown's request.

In so denying, the Court of Appeal found that the "appeal does not
raise serious issues in relation to insolvency proceedings as
asserted by the Crown.  Moreover, matters are proceeding
appropriately in both the United States and Canadian bankruptcy
and insolvency courts."

As a result, the Canadian Approval Order is now a Final Order,
which is not subject to further appeals.  Thus, the condition
precedent to Plan confirmation that the Approval Order be entered
has been met and the Approval Order is a Final Order.

W.R. GRACE: Reports $71.2 Million Net Income for 2009
-----------------------------------------------------
W.R. Grace & Co., on February 25, 2010, filed with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission its annual financial report
for year ended December 31, 2009, in Form 10-K.

A summary of Grace's financial performance for the year ended
December 31, 2009, compared with the prior year:

  * Sales for the year ended December 31, 2009, were
    $2,825.0 million compared with $3,317.0 million for the prior
    year, a 14.8% decrease.  The sales decrease was due to lower
    sales volumes (10.2%), unfavorable currency translation
    (3.7%), lower cost of metals passed through to customers
    (3.1%), and the deconsolidation of the Advanced Refining
    Technology LLC joint venture (1.2%), partly offset by price
    Increases (3.4%).

  * Gross profit percentage for the year was 32.7% compared with
    29.7% in the prior year.  The improvement in gross profit
    percentage was due to price increases primarily implemented
    in the second half of 2008, a decrease in raw materials and
    energy costs since their peak in the fourth quarter of 2008,
    and lower factory overhead expenses resulting primarily from
    restructuring activities.

  * Core EBIT for the year was $255.3 million, down 14.8% from
    the prior year, primarily due to lower sales volumes,
    restructuring expenses, unfavorable currency translation,
    and higher pension expenses, partly offset by an increase in
    gross profit percentage, gains related to three product line
    sales and the ART transaction, and lower selling, general
    and administrative expenses.  Core EBIT margin was 9.0%,
    equal to the prior year level.

  * Grace net income for the year ended December 31, 2009, was
    $71.2 million, or $0.98 per diluted share, compared with
    Grace net income of $121.5 million, or $1.68 per diluted
    share, for the prior year.

  * Adjusted Operating Cash Flow was $446.5 million for the year
    ended December 31, 2009, compared with $389.5 million in the
    prior year, a 14.6% increase.  The increase in Adjusted
    Operating Cash Flow was primarily due to improvements in
    working capital and lower capital expenditures, partially
    offset by the impact of lower Core EBIT.  Net working
    capital decreased by 27 days during 2009, including a
    reduction of 13 days of inventory and an increase of 13 days
    of accounts payable.

  * Core EBIT return on invested capital increased to 22.3% from
    22.1% in the prior year.

  * Sales of the Grace Davison operating segment for the year
    ended December 31, 2009, were $1,935.4 million, down 10.8%
    compared with the prior year.  Segment operating income for
    the year ending December 31, 2009 was $331.3 million, a
    19.1% increase compared with the prior year.  Segment
    operating margin was 17.1% compared with 12.8% for the prior
    year.  These results reflect the favorable effects of price
    increases, lower raw materials and energy costs, gains
    related to the sale of a product line and the ART
    transaction, and lower operating expenses, partly offset by
    the unfavorable effects of lower sales volume, the sale in
    the first quarter of 2009 of high-cost inventories produced
    in the fourth quarter of 2008, and currency translation.

  * Sales of the Grace Construction Products operating segment
    for the year ended December 31, 2009, were $889.6 million,
    down 22.5% compared with the prior year.  Segment operating
    income for the year ended December 31, 2009 was
    $106.4 million compared with $148.3 million for the prior
    year, a 28.3% decrease.  Segment operating margin was 12.0%
    compared with 12.9% for the prior year, reflecting continued
    weakness in the global construction market.  These results
    include the gains on the sale of two product lines in 2009 and
    the restructuring following the sale of the pipe wrap product
    line.

  * Corporate costs related to core operations were
    $86.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2009, compared
    with $80.6 million in the prior year, an increase of 7.8%.
    Corporate support function costs decreased 7.3% from the
    prior year due primarily to savings from the restructuring
    actions completed in 2009 and other cost reduction efforts.
    Performance related compensation and other corporate costs
    increased primarily due to higher incentive compensation
    expenses and higher legal costs.

  * Net cash provided by operating activities for the year ended
    December 31, 2009, was $432.5 million compared with
    $15.0 million for the prior year.  Net cash provided by
    operating activities in the prior year included a payment of
    $252 million related to the settlement of certain
    environmental claims relating to Grace's former vermiculite
    operations in Libby, Montana.  Capital expenditures for the
    year ended December 31, 2009, were $93.8 million compared with
    $132.2 million for the prior year.  Available liquidity
    excludes the company's debtor in possession credit facility,
    which it is terminating.

  * At December 31, 2009, Grade had available liquidity of
    approximately $954.6 million, consisting of $893.0 million
    in cash and cash equivalents and $61.6 million of available
    credit under various non-U.S. credit facilities.

                   CHAPTER 11 PROCEEDINGS

A. E. Festa, President and Chief Executive Officer at Grace,
related that the resolution of the objections to the Joint Plan of
Reorganization proposed by the W.R. Grace and its debtor
affiliates, the Official Committee of Equity Security Holders, the
Official Committee of Asbestos Personal Injury Claimants and the
legal representative of future asbestos personal injury claimants
and related appeals could have a material effect on the terms and
timing of Grace's emergence from Chapter 11.

On March 9, 2009, the United States Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Delaware approved the disclosure statement explaining
the Plan.  Objections to the Plan generally involve demands for
interest at rates higher than provided for in the Plan, assertions
that the Plan may impair insurers' contractual rights, assertions
that the Plan discriminates against Libby, Montana personal injury
claimants, and the classification and treatment of claims under
the Plan.

The Bankruptcy Court held hearings to approve the Plan on June 22
to 23, 2009, September 8 to 17, 2009, and October 13 to 14, 2009.
Parties-in-interest submitted post-hearing briefs in November and
December 2009.  Closing arguments on confirmation of the Joint
Plan were held on January 4 to 6, 2010 and January 25, 2010.

                     Chapter 11 Expenses

Grace disclosed in its Form 10-K that it incurred significant
added costs that are directly attributable to operating in Chapter
11, consisting of net Chapter 11 expenses consist primarily of
legal, financial and consulting fees reduced by interest income
earned on cash and cash equivalents held by entities subject to
Chapter 11.

Chapter 11 expenses, net            $48.0      $65.8      $86.4
                                    =====      =====      =====

The decrease in direct Chapter 11 expenses for 2009 from the prior
years was primarily due to a decrease in activity compared with
2008 when Grace was conducting a trial for estimating the
liability for Personal Injury Claims, which was suspended in April
2008 as a result of the PI Settlement.

Based on current liquidity and expected 2010 cash flow, Grace
expects to require new financing of up to $850 million to
consummate the Plan.  In addition, Grace also intends to seek a
$200 million revolving credit facility in connection with its exit
financing.  On February 16, 2010, the Bankruptcy Court granted
Grace the authority to enter into engagement letters with Goldman
Sachs and Deutsche Bank have been selected as lead lenders.

In preparation for emergence, in 2009, Grace repatriated
approximately $173 million from their non-US subsidiaries to fund
payment of bankruptcy claims.  Grace's principal U.S. subsidiary
also holds a loan of approximately $355.5 million from a foreign
subsidiary.  Grace expects that all or a substantial portion of
this loan will be repaid at the time of emergence.

At December 31, 2009, Grace had available liquidity of
$954.6 million, consisting of $893.0 million in cash and cash
equivalents (approximately $696 million in the U.S.), and
approximately $61.6 million of available credit under various non-
U.S. credit facilities.

                         Tax Matters

Mr. Festa further related that after emergence from Chapter 11
under the Company's proposed Joint Plan, or another plan of
reorganization that is ultimately confirmed, Grace expects to have
substantial future tax deductions.  Upon emergence under the Joint
Plan, Grace would expect future tax deductions in the aggregate of
approximately $2 billion or more, primarily relating to asbestos,
environmental and other payments made at emergence and thereafter.
Mr. Festa said the extent to which the company will be able to use
those deductions after emergence will depend on Section 382 of the
Internal Revenue Code, which generally imposes an annual
limitation on a corporation's use of its deductions when a
corporation undergoes an "ownership change."

An ownership change is generally defined as a cumulative change of
50 percentage points or more in the ownership of certain
stockholders owning 5% or more of the outstanding Grace common
stock over a three year rolling period.  If Grace is to have a
change of ownership under Section 382 of the Code, approximately
$2 billion of the future deductions could be at risk.

Accordingly, the proposed charter for the reorganized corporation
under the Joint Plan provides that in the event there has been a
25 percentage point change of ownership in outstanding Grace stock
after emergence, the Board of Directors will have the authority to
impose restrictions on the transfer of Grace stock with respect to
certain 5% shareholders, Mr. Festa pointed out.  Those transfer
restrictions will generally not impose any limitations on a person
or other entity that holds less than 5% of the outstanding Grace
stock after emergence to either buy or sell Grace stock on the
open market.

                     LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

As of the Petition Date, Grace was a defendant in 65,656 asbestos-
related lawsuits, 17 involving claims for property damage and the
remainder involving 129,191 claims for personal injury.

Out of 380 asbestos property damage cases filed prior to the
Petition Date:

  -- 140 were dismissed without payment of any damages or
     settlement amounts;

  -- judgments after trial were entered in favor of Grace in
     nine cases;

  -- judgments after trial were entered in favor of the
     plaintiffs in eight cases for a total of $86.1 million;

  -- 207 property damage cases were settled for a total of
     $696.8 million; and

  -- 16 cases remain outstanding.  Of the 16 remaining cases,
     eight relate to the Canadian Zonolite Attic Insulations and
     eight relate to a number of former asbestos-containing
     products.

Cumulatively through the Petition Date, 16,354 asbestos personal
injury lawsuits involving 35,720 Personal Injury Claims were
dismissed without payment and 55,489 lawsuits involving 163,698 PI
Claims were disposed of for a total of $645.6 million.  As of the
Petition Date, 129,191 PI Claims were pending against Grace.  A
substantial number of additional PI Claims would have been
received between the Petition Date and December 31, 2009 had such
PI Claims not been stayed by the Bankruptcy Court, according to
Grace.

Meanwhile, the total recorded asbestos-related liability as of
December 31, 2009 and December 31, 2008, including pre- and
postpetition settlements, was $1.7 million.

Grace has also entered into settlement agreements with various
excess insurance carriers.  The unpaid maximum aggregate amount
available under these settlement agreements is $440 million.

Presently, Grace has no agreements in place with insurers with
respect to approximately $483 million of excess coverage.  In
addition, Grace has $253 million of excess coverage with insolvent
or non-paying insurance carriers.  Non-paying carriers are those
that, although technically solvent, are not currently meeting
their obligations to pay claims.  Grace has filed and continues to
file claims in the insolvency proceedings of the carriers, and
periodically receives distributions from some of them.

As of December 31, 2009, there remains approximately $923 million
of excess coverage from 53 presently solvent insurers.  Grace
estimates that eligible claims would have to exceed $4 billion to
access total coverage.  Grace further estimates that it should be
entitled to approximately $500 million of insurance recovery.

Grace's estimate of insurance recovery may differ materially from
actual amounts received by Grace, or, if the Plan is confirmed and
becomes effective, the Personal Injury Trust.

XENITH BANKSHARES: Gets Notice of Decision by NASDAQ
----------------------------------------------------
Xenith Bankshares, Inc. received a letter from The NASDAQ Stock
Market LLC informing it that a NASDAQ Hearings Panel has
determined to grant Xenith Bankshares' request to remain listed on
The NASDAQ Capital Market.  The Panel's determination is subject
to the condition that on or before June 21, 2010, Xenith
Bankshares must satisfy all initial listing requirements for
listing on The NASDAQ Capital Market, and have its application for
initial listing approved by the Listing Qualifications Staff.  If
Xenith Bankshares does not satisfy these conditions by that date,
the company's common stock will be delisted from The NASDAQ
Capital Market.  As noted below, Xenith Bankshares believes that
it currently satisfies all initial listing requirements, other
than the market value of publicly held shares (MVPHS) requirement
applicable for a company seeking initial listing on The NASDAQ
Capital Market.

As Xenith Bankshares previously announced, on December 23, 2009,
it received a letter from NASDAQ stating that the December 22,
2009 merger of Xenith Corporation, a privately held company, with
and into First Bankshares, Inc. constituted a business combination
that resulted in a "change of control" pursuant to NASDAQ Listing
Rule 5110(a).  Accordingly, the post-merger entity was required to
satisfy all of NASDAQ's initial listing criteria and complete the
initial listing process.  The letter went on to state that the
initial listing application was not approved because Xenith
Bankshares did not meet the MVPHS requirement applicable for a
company seeking initial listing on The NASDAQ Capital Market
pursuant to NASDAQ Listing Rule 5505(b).  At a hearing before the
Panel on January 28, 2010, Xenith Bankshares appealed NASDAQ's
determination and requested additional time to satisfy the MVPHS
requirement.

NASDAQ requires that the market value of the company's publicly
held shares be at least $15 million. As of the close of business
on December 22, 2009, the completion date of the merger, the
closing bid price for shares of First Bankshares' common stock was
$4.01, which resulted in a market value of publicly held shares of
$9,306,163.  Since the hearing, shares of Xenith Bankshares'
common stock have traded between $5.50 and $6.00 per share.  The
closing bid price for shares of Xenith Bankshares' common stock
must be at least $6.47 in order for the company to satisfy the
listing requirement's $15 million threshold.

There can be no assurance that Xenith Bankshares will satisfy all
initial listing requirements for listing on The NASDAQ Capital
Market, including the MVPHS requirement, by June 21, 2010.

If Xenith Bankshares does not satisfy all initial listing
requirements for listing on The NASDAQ Capital Market, the
company's common stock will be delisted from The NASDAQ Capital
Market.  If Xenith Bankshares' common stock is delisted, the
company expects that its common stock will become eligible for
quotation on the OTC Bulletin Board and/or the Pink OTC Markets
following the approval by the Financial Industry Regulatory
Authority of an application by one or more market makers to
continue quoting the company's common stock.

                    About Xenith Bankshares

Xenith Bankshares, Inc. is the holding company for Xenith Bank.
Its headquarters are in Richmond, Virginia and it has branches in
Suffolk, Virginia and the Tysons Corner area of Northern Virginia.


ZANETT INC: Expects to Receive Delisting Notice
-----------------------------------------------
Zanett, Inc., disclosed that by March 15, 2010 it expects to
receive a delisting determination letter from the Nasdaq Stock
Market Listing Qualifications Department, due to Zanett's failure
to regain compliance with the Nasdaq Capital Market's minimum bid
price requirement for continued listing set forth in Nasdaq
Listing Rule 5550(a)(2).  Zanett expects to request a hearing to
appeal the Nasdaq Staff's determination within seven days of
receipt of the letter.  If such a request is made, no delisting
action will be taken until the hearing process concludes and the
Hearing Panel has issued a written decision.

Failure to request a hearing within seven calendar days will
result in the suspension and delisting of Zanett's securities
under the terms of the delisting determination letter.  There can
be no assurance that the Hearing Panel will grant Zanett's request
for continued listing.

                        GENERAL TIMELINE

Oral hearings are held in Washington D.C. and are typically
scheduled 30 to 45 days from the company's request for a hearing
date.  The Hearing Panel generally issues a written decision
approximately 35 days after the hearing, but the company could
receive a written decision sooner.  Based on this timeline, Zanett
expects to be issued a written decision from the Hearing Panel no
sooner than 60 days from March 15, 2010.  Until then, no delisting
action will be taken before the hearing process concludes and the
Hearing Panel has issued a written decision.

                          ZANETT'S PLAN

Dennis Harkins, Zanett's President stated, "We at Zanett plan to
file an appeal with the Hearing Panel, and to vehemently fight to
maintain our current Nasdaq listing.  We believe we have a great
company, with a great business, and are on track to successfully
execute on our business plan.  At $43 million in revenues, and a
big sales pipeline, we deserve the right to this appeal.  Although
the outcome of any appeal process is never known, we believe we
stand a good chance for success."

                         NEXT STEPS

Once the delisting determination letter is received from Nasdaq,
Zanett plans to issue a press release within the proscribed 4
business days.  Such future press release will announce the
receipt of Nasdaq's delisting determination and the basis for the
delisting, which includes citation of the applicable Listing
Rule(s).

                     BACKGROUND INFORMATION

On September 17, 2009, Zanett, Inc. received a letter from Nasdaq
notifying it that the bid price per share for the Company's common
stock has closed below the $1.00 minimum bid price requirement for
30 consecutive trading days and that, as a result, the Company no
longer meets minimum bid price requirement for continued listing
set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2).  No breach of any
other listing requirement was listed in the letter.

Pursuant to Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company had 180
calendar days, or until March 15, 2010, to regain compliance with
the minimum bid price requirement.  To regain compliance, the
closing bid price of the Company's common stock must close above
$1.00 for a minimum of ten consecutive trading days.  However,
Nasdaq may, in its discretion, require the Company to maintain a
minimum closing bid price of $1.00 per share for a period in
excess of ten consecutive trading days (but generally no longer
than 20 consecutive business days) before determining that the
Company has demonstrated an ability to maintain long-term
compliance with the rule.

ZAYAT STABLES: Gets Cash for Operations After Fifth Third Accord
----------------------------------------------------------------
Nancy Kercheval at Bloomberg News reports that Zayat Stables LLC
and Fifth Third Bancorp reached an agreement to free up cash for
horse-racing operations while they settle a loan dispute.

The dispute began in December when Fifth Third filed a suit in
federal court saying Zayat Stables had defaulted on a loan under
which it owes $34.2 million.  In an attempt to halt the action,
the stables filed for bankruptcy protection, citing Fifth Third's
"predatory lending practices."

Under the agreement reached by the parties, Zayat gained
permission to use its "cash on hand" and access a credit line to
run its horse-racing operation, the Bloomberg report quoted
Michael Sirota, an attorney for Zayat, as saying.  Zayat must file
a plan of reorganization by April 16.

                        About Zayat Stables

Hackensack, New Jersey-based Zayat Stables owns of 203
thoroughbred horses.  The horses, which are collateral for the
bank loan, are worth $37 million, according an appraisal mentioned
in a court paper.  Ahmed Zayat said in a court filing that he
personally invested $40 million in the business.

The Company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on
February 3, 2010 (Bankr. D. N.J. Case No. 10-13130).  The Company
listed $10,000,001 to $50,000,000 in assets and $10,000,001 to
$50,000,000 in liabilities.


ZAYO GROUP: Moody's Assigns Corporate Family Rating at 'B2'
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B2 corporate family rating
and a B2 probability of default rating for Zayo Group, LLC.  The
ratings agency also assigned a B2 (LGD3-49%) rating to the
company's $225 million senior secured notes.  In addition, the
company also has a $75 million senior secured revolving credit
facility, which Moody's does not rate.  The company plans to use
the borrowings to refinance existing debt, which Moody's does not
rate, and for general corporate purposes.  The rating outlook is
stable.

Issuer: Zayo Group, LLC

* Corporate Family Rating -- Assigned B2
* Probability of Default Rating -- Assigned B2
* Senior Secured Notes -- Assigned B2, LGD3 -49%
* Outlook - Stable

Zayo's B2 corporate family rating reflects the company's deep
fiber network in its markets that have helped drive strong revenue
growth in a difficult operating and liquidity-strapped environment
for traditional competitive telecommunications carriers.  The
company has delivered quarter-over-quarter revenue growth since
2007, while many CLECs are still witnessing revenue declines.  In
Moody's view, the resurging demand for the company's wholesale and
enterprise bandwidth services and the stability of the recurring
revenue stream from the company's recently acquired colocation
business supports the rating.  However, Moody's is concerned about
the long term sustainability of the revenue growth and the high
upfront capital expenditures needed to drive that growth.  As a
result, Moody's expects the company to incur negative free cash
flow over the next several years due to ongoing capital
expenditures.  In addition, ratings are tempered by high customer
concentration and small scale in a competitive environment.  A
large portion of the company's footprint is in the northeastern
USA, which is the most competitive telecommunications market in
the country, while the company's Midwest operations may be
impacted by regional macroeconomic forces.

The stable outlook is based on Moody's view that the company has
weathered the worst of the macroeconomic pressures in its markets,
and, with adequate liquidity to fund growth, should be able to
capitalize on favorable near-term wholesale bandwidth capacity
trends.

Moody's believes that the company has very good liquidity, as cash
on-hand from the new financing, coupled with full access to its
$75 million revolver, are expected to cover the expected negative
free cash flow over the next four quarters.

This is the first time that Moody's has rated Zayo.

Zayo Group is a US-based broadband infrastructure and collocation
provider.  The company's headquarters are located in Louisville,
CO.


* Canadian Bankruptcies Down 8.6% in December
---------------------------------------------
The Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy in Canada reported
on March 3 that the total number of insolvencies (bankruptcies and
proposals) in the country decreased by 11.1% in December 2009 from
the previous month.  Bankruptcies decreased by 8.6% whereas
proposals decreased by 16.6%.

In comparison with the same month last year, the total number of
insolvencies in December 2009 was 7.2% higher than the total
number of insolvencies in December 2008.  Consumer insolvencies
have increased by 8.5% while business insolvencies have decreased
by 15.7%.

For the 12-month period ending December 31, 2009, total
insolvencies increased by 28.6% compared with the 12-month period
ending December 31, 2008.  This is entirely due to an increase in
consumer insolvencies.

Business insolvencies for the 12-month period ended Dec. 31, 2009,
fell by 9.6% compared with the 12-month period ending December 31,
2008.  A significant reduction in insolvencies in the agriculture,
forestry, fishing and hunting; construction; and transportation
and warehousing sectors contributed to this decrease.

In December, seven Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act
proceedings were filed.


* 14 CCAA Proceedings Commenced in 2009 Fourth Quarter
------------------------------------------------------
The Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy in Canada reported
that 14 proceedings under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act
were filed in the fourth quarter of 2009.  Five of those filers
are publicly traded.  Debts of the CCAA applicants total C$6.77
billion and assets are roughly C$6.2 billion.

More statistics is available at:

   http://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/bsf-osb.nsf/eng/br02368.html

The Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act is a federal law allowing
insolvent corporations that owe their creditors in excess of $5
million to restructure their business and financial affairs.  CCAA
proceedings are carried out under supervision of the courts.


* Commercial Bankruptcy Filings Unchanged in February 2010
----------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle at Bloomberg News reports that more than 117,000
bankruptcies were filed in February, the second most on a daily
basis since bankruptcy law changed in October 2005.  Citing data
compiled from court records by Automated Access to Court
Electronic Records, Mr. Rochelle said commercial filings were
unchanged from January to February and last month were up only 3%
from the same month in 2009.  Filings in Chapter 11, where mostly
larger companies reorganize or liquidate, were down 18% compared
with January and up 1% from February 2009.


* S&P Expects Default Rate to Decline to 5% by December 2010
------------------------------------------------------------
With the economy on a slow path toward recovery, the U.S.
speculative-grade default rate declined only slightly in February
-- to an estimated 10.5% -- said an article published March 3 by
Standard & Poor's, titled "U.S. Credit Metrics Monthly: Default
Rate Drops Nominally In February To An Estimated 10.5% (Premium)."

It was previously at a high of 10.9% at the end of 2009 and again
in January.  "The default rate remains at elevated levels,
consistent with its performance as a lagging indicator to the
overall economy," said Diane Vazza, head of Standard & Poor's
Global Fixed Income Research Group.  "Nevertheless, credit metrics
in the U.S. are showing indications of strengthening credit
quality, albeit at a cautious pace."

Although the default rate exceeds 10%, far fewer issuers are
defaulting each month.  In February, three companies defaulted,
compared with 25 at the same time in 2009.  The preliminary
estimate for the U.S. 12-month-trailing speculative-grade default
rate in February is 10.5% (subject to revision), slightly lower
than the 10.9% in both December and January.  S&P expects the
speculative-grade default rate to decline to a mean forecast of 5%
by December 2010, but it could reach 6.9% if economic conditions
are worse than we expect.


* Mortgage Delinquencies Continue to Increase
---------------------------------------------
ABI reports that Equifax Inc. reported that more than 8% of
homeowners were behind 30 days or more on their mortgage loans, up
4.4% from December 2009 and 21 percent from last January.


* Donlin Recano Hires Mark Schindel as Director in Chicago Office

* Former AIG Gen. Counsel Anastasia Kelly Joins DLA Piper
---------------------------------------------------------
Anastasia Kelly has joined DLA Piper's Washington, DC office as Of
Counsel.  Ms. Kelly most recently served as Vice Chairman at
American International Group, in charge of Legal, Compliance,
Regulatory, Human Resources, Communications, Government Relations
and Public Relations.  She began at AIG in 2006 as Executive Vice
President, General Counsel and Senior Regulatory and Compliance
Officer.

While at AIG, Ms. Kelly worked to strengthen the compliance,
regulatory and governance framework of the company and to build a
cohesive team across the corporate functions she supervised.
Under her leadership, AIG's corporate activities became better
positioned to restore the embattled company's financial health.

"We have known and worked closely with Stasia for many years, in a
variety of different contexts.  It would be difficult to identify
another lawyer in this country with more complex corporate
governance and board crisis experience, or more character, grit
and determination than Stasia Kelly," said Francis B. Burch, Jr.,
Global Chairman of DLA Piper.  "She has a well earned reputation
as the go-to counsel for companies in difficult circumstances and
she will be a tremendous asset for our clients as they navigate
this volatile market and these challenging times."

Ms. Kelly joined AIG as Executive Vice President, General Counsel
and Senior Regulatory and Compliance Officer in 2006, after the
departure of Chairman and CEO Hank Greenberg amid a probe by then
New York State Attorney General Eliot Spitzer.  She was brought to
AIG to assist in building a new corporate culture.  Following the
financial crisis in 2008, in which AIG received significant
amounts of taxpayer assistance, she was named Vice Chairman in
January 2009.

"Stasia brings a wealth of legal and management experience. She
has dealt with enormous corporate governance challenges during her
career, and her perspective is incredibly valuable in the current
economic environment," said Roger Meltzer, Global Chair of DLA
Piper's Corporate and Finance practice. "Our global platform is
the ideal setting for Stasia to leverage her extensive experience
and return to private legal practice."

Prior to joining AIG, Ms. Kelly served as Executive Vice President
and General Counsel of MCI/WorldCom, where, as a member of the
restructuring team, she helped the company recover from an
accounting scandal, emerge from bankruptcy and position itself for
acquisition by Verizon Communications.  Previously, she was Senior
Vice President and General Counsel of Sears, Roebuck and Co.,
managing corporate legal policy and strategy.  Ms. Kelly also
served as Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate
Secretary at Fannie Mae from 1995-1998, and had been a partner and
associate at Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering, where she had extensive
exposure to regulatory and compliance issues involving financial
institutions and securities firms. She has served on the boards of
numerous non-profit organizations, with a particular emphasis on
providing legal services to disenfranchised and indigent
populations.

Ms. Kelly received a J.D., magna cum laude, from George Washington
University National Law Center and a B.A., cum laude, from Trinity
University.

The Wall Street Journal's Serena Ng says Ms. Kelly joins DLA Piper
about two months after she resigned over government-imposed pay
curbs and secured more than $3 million in severance.  As reported
by the Troubled Company Reporter, U.S. pay czar, Kenneth Feinberg,
in December 2009 capped annual cash salaries for most executives
at $500,000, and Ms. Kelly's pay stood to be reduced
significantly.

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 from the U.S. government, and continues to
