In Detroit Chapter 9, When is a Pledge Just a Promise, Not Security? THE TOWN of Detroit and the monolines have finished their quarrels before Judge Rhodes regarding whether or not the covered Detroit GOs are secured obligations. What becomes with this relevant question? 300 million), when you see that the Detroit plan of adjustment seeks to take care of secured debt as fully-protected (100% recovery), whereas if the insured Detroit GOs are deemed unsecured, the plan’s opening gambit is for only a 20% recovery.
Moreover, the legislative resolutions pledge these special taxes, which may only be transferred into this connection repayment account, toward repayment of the bonds. The populous city of Detroit argues by asking, “Where’s the Lien?” This form of rhetoric proved helpful for Wendy’s, but not applicant Mondale, a few years ago; will it work for the town of Detroit?

This company was de-listed from the NASDAQ with 0.0001 per talk about, you can see why. 400 Million for the company. 848,000 – less than a million bucks. The true believers never bothered to ask why someone would just inform them this anonymously, but went out and bought the stock instead, watched it up go, and then crash hard.
No one lost a lot of money this way, a little bit just. But whoever set up that fake Press Release no doubt raked in thousands, tens of thousands and maybe thousands of dollars.
