    Why would anyone in thier right mind do future business with Cresent? By filing this action vendors, suppliers, etc. will be forced to settle for pennies on the dollar for goods and services provided before filing. mean while the fools who ran the company into the ground are reqarded with outlandish salraries, bonuses and other perks. The parent company (Duke / MS)laugh all the way to the bank with your money. Filing of bancrupcy should automatically trigger firing of all executives, cancellation of executive pensions, bonues and perks. Clawbacks from Duke & MS should make vendors, suppliers, local government’s, stockholders and bondholders whole. Legal fees should be witt held until all other debts have been satisfied.

    I don’t understand your reasoning. As a former employee of a bankrupt real estate company, I can tell you that the "executives" you mention completely turned over – meaning that they weren’t around to reap the alleged benefits that you and others like you seem to think they did. Was this bankruptcy some diabolical ingenious plan to screw everyone out of their money, or was it simply the result of an unprecedented market collapse?

    From first hand knowledge, I can tell you that the "outlandish salaries" and all bonuses went away with the market. The media would have you believe that bankruptcy is something that all these big companies want. In reality it is the last resort to salvage the best value from a set of assets.
