LightSquared, Ergen Reach Deal on Bankruptcy Plan (Wall Street Journal)
Philip Falcone‘s LightSquared Inc. reached a deal on a restructuring plan that has the support of DISH Network Corp (NASDAQ:DISH) Chairman Charlie Ergen, its top secured lender. In a court hearing Monday, a lawyer for a special committee of LightSquared’s board said the new plan would give Mr. Ergen a $1 billion allowed claim in the bankruptcy case, and calls for him to invest $300 million in new money into the wireless venture. The deal is a “stunning reversal to us,” said David Friedman, a lawyer for Mr. Falcone and his Harbinger Capital Partners hedge-fund company. Mr. Falcone and Harbinger had been adamant that they wanted Mr. Ergen out of LightSquared’s capital structure. LightSquared, for the most part, had agreed.

Maverick Capital and Ranger Capital founder Sam Wyly may be guilty of improperly hiding stock trades—but he’s not an insider-trader, a judge ruled Friday. U.S. District Judge Shira Scheindlin found that Wyly and his late brother, Charles, did not engage in insider-trading with a $40 million offshore swaps deal in 1999. The ruling comes two months after a jury found the Wylys liable for fraud in a case brought by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
