Dec. 19 (Bloomberg) -- Surprises about the financial condition of MF Global Holdings Ltd. and AMR Corp., the parent of American Airlines Inc., make up the first topic for discussion in the newest video by Bloomberg Law's Lee Pacchia and Bloomberg News bankruptcy columnist Bill Rochelle. Rochelle next discusses how Mexican glass maker Vitro SAB is ginning up strategies to fend off U.S. bondholders who now have authority from U.S. courts to attempt collecting on the $1.2 billion in defaulted bonds they hold. The video ends with discussion of two significant appellate decisions of recent vintage.

Marshall can't be waived. See less -
