[D.I. 162] pursuant to Local Rule 5009-l(c), as well as a Certification ofCmmsel [DJ.l63], with

infomml comments to the Debtors regarding the Final Decree, and subsequently, on September
17, 2012 the Debtors filed their revised Final Decree, taking into consideration the comments of
the UST under Certification of Counsel [D.I. 167].
6. Subsequently, the UST raised a question as to whether aU of the Other Priority
Claims, as defined in the Pian had been paid, or had agreed to different treatment.

treatment. Specifically, two officers of the company vvere owed sums for within 90
days ofthe filing of cases, however, the contracts pursuant to which these arose
were assumed by the Debtors pursuant to an Order entered in the bankruptcy proceedings and the
arrearages (including the wages earned within 90 days ofthe initiation of the bankruptcy cases)
\\rill be paid from the proceeds of the I.D. Litigation (as defined in the Plan).
8. The Proposed Final Decree is attached hereto as Exhibit "'A."
9. This Certiiication is only being filed to complete the the
payment of the Priority Claims;' as requested by the UST.
