JURISDICTION AND VENUE
1. The Court has jurisdiction over this matter pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 157
and 1334 and the Amended Standing Order of Reference from the United States District Court
for the District of Delaware, dated as of February 29, 2012. This is a core proceeding pursuant
to 28 U.S.C. 157(b)(2), and the Court may enter a final order consistent with Article III of the
United States Constitution. Venue is proper in this Court pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1408 and
1409. The statutory and legal predicates for the relief sought herein are 28 U.S.C. 156(c),
section 105 ofthe Bankruptcy Code, and Rule 2002-1(f) of the Local Rules of Bankruptcy
Practice and Procedure of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (the
"Local Rules").
BACKGROUND
2. On June 26, 2012 (the "Petition Date"), the Debtor filed a voluntary
petition for relief under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. Concurrently with this Motion, the
Debtor has also filed motions or applications seeking certain "first day" relief.

RELIEF REQUESTED
6. By this Application, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 156(c), section 105(a) of the
Bankruptcy Code, and Local Rule 2002-1 (f), the Debtor respectfully requests the entry of an
order appointing Rust Omni as its claims and noticing agent for the Court (the "Claims and
Noticing Agent") in this chapter 11 case, nunc pro tunc to the Petition Date and pursuant to the
terms of the Engagement Agreement annexed hereto as Exhibit B (the "Engagement
Agreement").
7. Prior to selecting Rust Omni to act as the Claims and Noticing Agent, the
Debtor obtained and reviewed engagement proposals from at least two other court-approved
claims and noticing agents to ensure selection from a competitive process. The Debtor submits,
based on the three engagement proposals obtained and reviewed, that Rust Omni's rates are
competitive and reasonable given Rust Omni's quality of service and expertise. Accordingly, the
Debtor's selection of Rust Omni as the Claims and Noticing Agent satisfies the Court's Protocol
for the Employment of Claims and Noticing Agents Under 28 US. C. 156(c), dated February 1,
2012.
BASIS FOR RELIEF REQUESTED
8. Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 156(c), which governs the staffing and expenses
of the Court, this Court is authorized to utilize facilities other than those of the Office of the
Clerk of the Court (the "Clerk's Office") for the administration of bankruptcy cases. It provides,
in relevant part, that:
[a ]ny court may utilize facilities or services, either on or off the
court's premises, which pertain to the provision of notices,
dockets, calendars, and other administrative information to parties
in cases filed under the provisions of title 11, United States Code,
where the costs of such facilities or services are paid for out of the
assets of the estates and are not charged to the United States.
28 U.S.C. 156(c).

Case:12-24882-ABC Doc#:5 Filed:06/26/12 Entered:07/17/12 10:56:14 Page4 of 34
9. Rule 2002 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure (the "Bankruptcy
Rules") generally regulates what notices must be provided to creditors and other parties in
interest in bankruptcy cases. Specifically, Bankruptcy Rule 2002() provides that"[ s ]orne other
person, as the court may direct shall give the debtor, all creditors, and indenture trustees" notice
of various matters. Fed. R. Bankr. P. 2002(). Local Rule 2002-1() provides, in relevant part,
that:
[u]pon motion of the debtor or trustee, at any time without notice
or hearing, the Court may authorize the retention of a notice and/or
claims clerk under 28 U.S.C. 156(c).
Del. Bankr. L.R. 2002-1(). Further, unless the Court orders otherwise, Local Rule 2002-1()
requires in all cases with more than 200 creditors that the debtor file a motion to retain a noticing
agent on the first day of the case or within ten days thereafter. This rule also specifies the
functions the claims agent is to perform and provides that the Court may authorize the retention
of a claims agent at any time without notice or hearing, upon motion by the debtor.
10. Although the Debtor has yet to file its schedules of assets and liabilities, it
anticipates that there will be in excess of 5,000 entities to be noticed. In view of the number of
anticipated claimants and the complexity of the Debtor's business, the Debtor submits that the
appointment of a claims and noticing agent is both necessary and in the best interests of the
Debtor's estate and its creditors.
RUST OMNI'S QUALIFICATIONS
11. Rust Omni has acted as the claims and noticing agent in numerous cases
of comparable size, including several cases currently pending in this district and others. See,
e.g., In re Allied Sys. Holdings, Inc., Case No. 12-11654 (Bankr D. Del. June 6, 2012); In re
Perkins & Marie Callender's Inc., Case No. 11-11795 (Bankr. D. Del. June 14, 2011); In re
Innkeepers USA Trust, Case No. 10-13800 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. July 19, 2010); In re AGT Crunch

(Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Nov. 15, 2006); In re Owens Corning Sales, LLC, Case No. 00-3837 (Bankr.
D. Del. Oct. 5, 2000).
12. The Debtor believes that the retention of Rust Ornni as the Claims and
Noticing Agent in this chapter 11 case will expedite service of Bankruptcy Rule 2002 notices,
streamline the claims administration process, and permit the Debtor to focus on its reorganization
efforts. Accordingly, the Debtor's estate, and especially its creditors, will benefit as a result of
Rust Omni's experience and cost-effective methods.

under the Clerk's delegation of duties permitted by 28 U.S.C. 156( c) and Local Rule 2002-1 (f).

RUST OMNI'S DISINTERESTEDNESS
15. The Debtor has many creditors, and accordingly, Rust Ornni may have
rendered and may continue to render services to certain of these creditors. Rust Omni has not
and will not represent the separate interests of any such creditor in this case. Additionally, Rust
Ornni employees may, in the ordinary course of their personal affairs, have relationships with
certain creditors of the Debtor. Except as may be disclosed in the Deutch Declaration, Rust
Omni has represented that it neither holds nor represents any interest adverse to the Debtor's
estate in connection with any matter on which it would be employed and that it is a "disinterested
person," as referenced in section 327(a) of the Bankruptcy Code and as defined in section
101(14) ofthe Bankruptcy Code, as modified by section 1107(b).
16. Rust Ornni will conduct an ongoing review of its files to ensure that no
conflicts or other disqualifYing circumstances exist or arise. If any new facts or relationships are
discovered, Rust Ornni will supplement its disclosure to the Court.
17. In connection with its retention as the Claims and Noticing Agent, Rust
Omni represents, among other things, that:
01:12213634.3
(a) Rust Ornni will not consider itself employed by the United States
government and shall not seek any compensation from the United States
government in its capacity as the Claims and Noticing Agent in the
chapter 11 case;
8
Case:12-24882-ABC Doc#:5 Filed:06/26/12 Entered:07/17/12 10:56:14 Page9 of 34
(b) by accepting employment in the chapter 11 case, Rust Omni waives any
rights to receive compensation from the United States government in its
capacity as the Claims and Noticing Agent in the chapter 11 case;
(c) in its capacity as the Claims and Noticing Agent in this chapter 11 case,
Rust Omni will not be an agent of the United States and will not act on
behalf of the United States;
(d) Rust Omni will not employ any past or present employees of the Debtor in
connection with its work as the Claims and Noticing Agent in the chapter
11 case;
(e) in its capacity as the Claims and Noticing Agent in the chapter 11 case,
Rust Omni will not intentionally misrepresent any fact to any person;
(f) Rust Omni shall be under the supervision and control of the Clerk's Office
with respect to the receipt and recordation of claims and claim transfers;
and
(g) none of the services provided by Rust Omni as the Claims and Noticing
Agent in the chapter 11 case shall be at the expense of the Clerk's Office.
TERMS OF RETENTION
18. The Debtor proposes to retain Rust Omni at the rates and under the terms
set forth in the Engagement Agreement. The Debtor believes these rates and terms are consistent
with the market for comparable services. Compensation for Rust Omni's services as Claims and
Noticing Agent will be paid from the Debtor's estate in the ordinary course of business without
further application to this Court as provided by 28 U.S.C. 156(c) and section 503(b)(1)(A) of
the Bankruptcy Code. Rust Omni will maintain records of all services showing dates, categories
of services, fees charged, and expenses incurred and will serve monthly invoices for services
rendered by Rust Omni in its capacity as the Claims and Noticing Agent on the Debtor, the U.S.
Trustee, counsel for the Debtor, counsel for any official committee appointed in this case, and
any party who specifically requests service of the monthly invoices. If any dispute arises relating
to the Engagement Agreement or monthly invoices, the parties shall meet and confer in an
attempt to resolve the dispute. If resolution is not achieved, the parties may seek resolution of
the matter by the Court.

Case:12-24882-ABC Doc#:5 Filed:06/26/12 Entered:07/17/12 10:56:14 Page10 of 34
19. Prior to the Petition Date, the Debtor provided Rust Omni a retainer in the
amount of $15,000. Rust Omni may apply its retainer to all prepetition invoices, which retainer
shall be replenished to the original retainer amount, and thereafter, Rust Omni may hold its
retainer under the Engagement Agreement during the chapter 11 case as security for the payment
of fees and expenses incurred under the Engagement Agreement.
20. If Rust Omni's services are terminated, Rust Omni shall perform its duties
until a complete transition with the Clerk's Office or any successor claims and noticing agent
occurs, provided, however, that the provision of such transition services shall be subject to the
terms of the Engagement Agreement, including with respect to payment.
21. Rust Omni shall perform the duties within the scope of its appointment
under 28 U.S.C. 156(c) regardless of whether Rust Omni has received payment in accordance
with the Engagement Agreement. To the extent Rust Omni requires redress for non-payment of
its fees and expenses, it will seek relief from the Court.
22. Rust Omni will comply with all requests of the Clerk's Office and the
guidelines promulgated by the Judicial Conference of the United States for the implementation
of28 U.S.C. 156(c).
23. This Application complies with the Court's Protocol for the Employment
of Claims and Noticing Agents under 28 US. C. 156(c) and conforms to the standard
Application in use in this Court.
24. For the foregoing reasons, the Debtor believes that granting the relief
requested herein is appropriate and in the best interests of its estate and creditors.
25. The Debtor further submits that because the reliefrequested in this
Application is necessary to avoid immediate and irreparable harm to the Debtor, for the reasons
set forth herein, Bankruptcy Rule 6003 has been satisfied.

Capitalized terms not otherwise defmed herein shall have the meaning ascribed thereto in the Application.
01:12213634.3
Case:12-24882-ABC Doc#:5 Filed:06/26/12 Entered:07/17/12 10:56:14 Page16 of 34
a. Rust Omni is not a creditor of the Debtor;
b. Rust Omni will not consider itself employed by the United States
government and shall not seek any compensation from the United States
government in its capacity as an agent in this chapter 11 case;
c. by accepting employment in this chapter 11 case, Rust Omni waives any
rights to receive compensation from the United States government;
d. in its capacity as the agent in this chapter 11 case, Rust Omni will not be
an agent of the United States and will not act on behalf of the United
States;
e. in its capacity as the agent in this chapter 11 case, Rust Omni will not
misrepresent any fact to any person;
f. Rust Omni will not employ any past or present employees of the Debtor in
connection with its work as the agent in this chapter 11 case;
g. Rust Omni shall be under the supervision and control of the Clerk's Office
with respect to the receipt and recordation of claims and claim transfers;
and
h. none of the services provided by Rust Omni as agent shall
be at the expense of the Clerk's Office.
6. The Debtor has many creditors, and accordingly, Rust Omni may have rendered
and may continue to render services to certain of these creditors in matters umelated to this case,
either as vendors or in cases where Rust Omni serves in a neutral capacity as a bankruptcy
claims and noticing agent or class action settlement administrator. Rust Omni has not and will
not represent the separate interest of any such creditor in this case. To the best of my knowledge,
neither Rust Omni, nor any of its professional personnel, has any relationship with the Debtor
that would impair Rust Omni's ability to perform claims and noticing services. Rust Omni has
working relationships with certain of the professionals retained by the Debtor and other parties
herein, but such relationships are completely umelated to the Debtor's case. In addition, Rust
Omni personnel may have relationships with some of the Debtor's creditors. Such relationships
are, however, of a personal, financial nature and are wholly umelated to the Debtor's case. Rust
Omni has and will continue to represent clients in matters umelated to the Debtor's case and has
01:12213634.3
Case:12-24882-ABC Doc#:5 Filed:06/26/12 Entered:07/17/12 10:56:14 Page17 of 34
had and will continue to have relationships in the ordinary course of its business with certain
vendors and professionals in connection with matters umelated to this case.
7. To the best of my knowledge and except as provided herein, Rust Omni neither
holds nor represents any interest materially adverse to the Debtor's estate in connection with any
matter on which it would be employed and that it is a "disinterested person," as that term is
defined in section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code, as modified by section 1107(b). Rust Omni
will supplement its disclosure to the Court if any facts or circumstances are discovered that
require additional disclosure.
8. In performing the services set forth in the Application, Rust Omni will charge the
Debtor the rates set forth in the Engagement Agreement.
9. Prior to the Petition Date, Rust Omni received a retainer totaling $15,000 for
services to be performed for the Debtor. Rust Omni has applied these funds to amounts due for
services rendered and expenses incurred prior to the Petition Date.

Case:12-24882-ABC Doc#:5 Filed:06/26/12 Entered:07/17/12 10:56:14 Page18 of 34
10. Rust Omni will comply with all requests of the Clerk's Office and the guidelines
promulgated by the Judicial Conference of the United States for the implementation of28 U.S.C.
156(c).
I declare under penalty of peljury pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1746 that the foregoing is true
and correct.

Omni's gross negligence, willful misconduct, or fraud; (ii) for a contractual dispute in which the
Debtor alleges the breach of Rust Omni's contractual obligations if the Court determines that

indemnification, contribution, or reimbursement would not be permissible pursuant to In re
United Artists Theatre Co., 315 F .3d 217 (3d Cir. 2003 ), or (iii) settled prior to a judicial
determination under (i) or (ii) but determined by this Court, after notice and a hearing, to be a
claim or expense for which Rust Omni should not receive indemnity, contribution, or
reimbursement under the terms of the Engagement Agreement, as modified by this Order.
12. If, before the earlier of (i) the entry of an order confirming a chapter 11
plan in this case (that order having become a final order no longer subject to appeal) or (ii) the
entry of an order closing this case, Rust Omni believes that it is entitled to the payment of any
amounts by the Debtor on account of the Debtor's indemnification, contribution, and/or
reimbursement obligations under the Engagement Agreement (as modified by this Order),
including without limitation the advancement of defense costs, Rust Omni must file an
application for such amounts in this Court, and the Debtor may not pay any such amounts to Rust
Omni before the entry of an order by this Court approving the payment. This paragraph is
intended only to specify the period of time under which the Court shall have jurisdiction over
any request for fees and expenses by Rust Omni for indemnification, contribution, or
reimbursement and not a provision limiting the duration of the Debtor's obligation to indemnify
Rust Omni. All parties in interest shall retain the right to object to any demand by Rust Omni for
indemnification, contribution, or reimbursement.
13. In the event Rust Omni is unable to provide the Claims and Noticing
Services set out in the Application, Rust Omni will immediately notify the Clerk and Debtor's
counsel and cause to have all original proofs of claim and relevant creditor information turned
over to another claims and noticing agent with the advice and consent of the Clerk and Debtor's
counsel.

section 327 of the Bankruptcy Code and/or any applicable law, for work that is to be performed
pursuant to the Engagement Agreement by Rust Omni that is not specifically authorized by this
Order.
15. The Debtor and Rust Omni are authorized to take all actions necessary to
effectuate the relief granted pursuant to this Order in accordance with the Application.
16. The Court retains jurisdiction with respect to all matters arising from or
related to the implementation and enforcement of this Order and the Engagement Agreement.
1 7. Rust Omni shall not cease providing claims processing services during the
case for any reason, including nonpayment, without an order of the Court.
18. In the event of any inconsistency between the Engagement Agreement, the
Application, and this Order, this Order shall govern.
