U.S. judge clears way for Genco Shipping to exit bankruptcy

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 07/03/2014 - 04:01
By Nick Brown NEW YORK Del (Reuters) - A U.S. bankruptcy judge said he will confirm Genco Shipping & Trading’s plan to exit bankruptcy under the control of its senior creditors, rejecting arguments by shareholders that the proposal undervalues the dry bulk shipper’s assets. At a hearing on Wednesday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan, Judge Sean Lane said he agreed with the company's estimate that its going concern value was less than $1.5 billion. A committee of shareholders had argued the value could be as high as $1.91 billion, calling Genco’s restructuring a ploy to hand over control to creditors and management. Under the plan, existing shareholders would receive just $30 million in warrants.

McDaniel waves to supporters before delivering a concession speech in HattiesburgChris McDaniel, who lost Mississippi's Republican U.S. Senate primary last week, on Wednesday blamed his defeat on illegal voting by Democrats and asked supporters for money to mount a legal challenge to the runoff election results. McDaniel, a state senator backed by the Tea Party, said in an email to supporters that his loss to U.S. Senator Thad Cochran last week was caused by a large number of ineligible Democrats who voted for the six-term incumbent Cochran. "Thanks to illegal voting from liberal Democrats, my opponent stole last week’s runoff election, but I’m not going down without a fight," McDaniel said in the fundraising email one day after his supporters filed suit to gain access to voter records. Many of Mississippi's Democrats are black.

U.S. expands airlines' reporting requirements on pet safety

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 07/03/2014 - 03:29
U.S. airline passengers who travel with their pets will have access to more information about a carrier's animal-safety record under regulations announced on Wednesday by the U.S. Transportation Department. The rules, which go into effect on Jan. 1, will for the first time include commercial shipments of dogs and cats, such as those by breeders, not just those by pet owners. Animal rights groups had wanted more animals than just dogs and cats to be covered by the reporting requirements for commercial shipments, but the department said it would be "unduly burdensome" to require airlines to report the death, loss and injury of all species that are transported. Currently, airlines must file monthly reports and they don't include the total number of animals transported.
