TO FEDERAL RULE OF BANKRUPTCY el 17 PROCEDURE 9019 T 18 [No Hearing Required Pursuant to Local Bankruptcy Rule 9013-1(o)] 19 20 TO ALL INTERESTED PARTIES: 21 PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that Elissa D. Miller, the chapter 7 trustee for the bankruptcy estate (the "Estate") of Girardi Keese (the "GK Trustee"), has filed a Motion 22 for Order Authorizing Compromise of Controversy Regarding Distribution of Proceeds from the Sale of Airplanes Pursuant to Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 9019 (the 23 "Motion"). The Trustee is requesting that the Motion be granted without a hearing as provided in Local Bankruptcy Rule 9013-1(o) unless a party in interest timely files and 24 serves a written opposition to the Motion and requests a hearing. The Motion is summarized as follows: 25 1. The Motion requests approval of a compromise between the GK Trustee, 26 Jason M. Rund, the chapter 7 trustee of the bankruptcy estate of Thomas V. Girardi (the "Girardi Trustee"), and the Roy T. Eddleman Living Trust (the "Eddleman Trust"). The 27 compromise involves the marketing and sale of two airplanes owned by a non-debtor entity, G & E Partners LLC ("G&E"), and the allocation of proceeds from the sale.

1 2. G&E is the owner of two airplanes: (1) a 1990 Gulfstream G-IV, FAA registration mark N711GL ("Gulfstream") and (2) a 2000 Beechcraft Super King Air 350, 2 FAA registration mark N350GL ("Super King"). The Gulfstream and Super King are collectively referred to as the "Airplanes." The Airplanes are unencumbered but the 3 carrying costs to maintain the Airplanes are substantial. 4 3. According to the G&E Operating Agreement, Girardi Keese ("GK") holds a 66.67% interest in G&E and the Eddleman Trust holds a 33.33% interest. The Girardi 5 Trustee disputes that GK is the real owner of the 66.67% interest in G&E because, he alleges, that it was Thomas V. Girardi who contributed cash and Airplanes as capital to 6 G&E, not GK, even though the Operating Agreement attributes those contributions to GK7 4. G&E wants to sell the Airplanes and, through the compromise, the GK Trustee and the Girardi Trustee have authorized the Eddleman Trust to market and sell 8 the Airplanes. The Motion seeks an order (1) approving the appointment of the Eddleman Trust to take the steps necessary to dispose of the Airplanes for G&E and 9 (2) approving the compromise between the parties regarding the distribution of the sale proceeds as outlined in the Motion. The compromise resolves disputes and related 10 fraudulent transfer claims as to G&E and the Airplanes and ensures that the Estate will receive a substantial distribution once the Airplanes are sold. 11 2 5.

The GK Trustee, the Girardi Trustee, and the Eddleman Trust have agreeda 4 ost4 4 16 to proceed with the sale of the Airplanes and to provide for the distribution of the sale C71 proceeds by entering into an agreement (the “Agreement”), the salient terms of which arel 17 set forth below: T 18 (a) In consultation with, and with the written approval of both the GK Trustee and the Girardi Trustee, the Eddleman Trust will engage a broker to 19 facilitate the sale of the Airplanes. The Eddleman Trust will consult with both the GK Trustee and the Girardi Trustee with respect to any purchase offers received 20 for each of the Airplanes. 21 (b) Following the approval by the GK Trustee and the Girardi Trustee ofa purchase offer for the sale of each of the Airplanes, the Eddleman Trust is 22 authorized, on behalf of G&E, to sell the Airplanes and to execute and deliver anydocuments necessary and proper to transfer title to the Airplanes and to 23 consummate the sales. 24 (c) The Reimbursable Payments will be reimbursed to the Eddleman Trust from the net sales proceeds from the sale of the first of the two Airplanes. 25 Following the repayment in full of the Reimbursable Payments, (i) all subsequent operating and maintenance expenses of G&E will be paid by G&E from the net 26 sales proceeds that were not used to repay the Reimbursable Payments, and (ii) the Eddleman Trust will no longer be requested to make any further payments on 27 behalf of, or advances to G&E.

1 (d) The sale proceeds from the sale of the Airplanes shall be distributedas follows: 2 (1) First, to pay any broker's commissions and all other costs of 3 sale; 4 (2) Second, to reimburse the Eddleman Trust for the Reimbursable Payments, with any dispute regarding the validity and 5 reasonableness of the Reimbursable Payments being resolved by the Bankruptcy Court; 6 (3) Third, to pay all operating and maintenance expenses of G&7 other than the Reimbursable Payments; 8 (4) The balance of the net sale proceeds following the sale of both Airplanes will be distributed equally among the Eddleman Trust, the 9 Girardi Trustee for the benefit of the Girardi bankruptcy estate, and the GK Trustee for the benefit of the Estate. As between the Girardi bankruptcy 10 estate and the GK bankruptcy estate, the foregoing distributions shall resolve any and all of their respective fraudulent transfer claims with 11 respect to the Airplanes only; and 2 0 0 92626 4 445-1 1123 7.

The Trustee negotiated this settlement to minimize the risks and costs C71 associated with possible litigation if the parties were unable to arrive at an equitable el 17 resolution. In the absence of a consensual resolution, the GK Estate and the Girardi T Estate would have to litigate their claims against each other, which would require a 18 significant investment of time and resources. Given the state of the GK Estate's books and records, the litigation would be risky and difficult. The Trustee believes that the 19 upside is marginal even if the Trustee were to be successful in the litigation, and no litigation is without risk. The GK Trustee evaluated the potential strengths and 20 weaknesses of the Estate's position in the potential litigation and negotiated the settlement described in the Motion in an effort to maximize the return to creditors. 21 9. The compromise expedites the marketing and sale of the Airplanes and the22 distribution of the sale proceeds. In the absence of the settlement, the delay in resolvingthe issues between the GK Estate and the Girardi Estate will result in substantial costs t23 maintain the Airplanes which will unnecessarily erode equity to the detriment of all parties. The compromise also avoids fraudulent transfer litigation against G&E that 24 would otherwise have to be pursued by one or both of the GK Trustee and/or Girardi Trustee. 25 10. The compromise was entered into in good faith and was negotiated at arm'26 length. 27 DEADLINE FOR FILING AND SERVING OPPOSITION PAPERS AND REQUEST FOR A HEARING: Pursuant to LBR 9013-1(o), any party who opposes the
