10/16/2017 276 ORDER re [254] Notice(Other) filed by Receiver - No parties to this action oppose or have any other comment regarding the Receiver's Proposed Second Amended Order Appointing Receiver [254]. The Court has duly considered the lone commentary for clarification of certain language in the third sentence of paragraph 30 by a purported "large group of non-insider Platinum Partners Credit Opportunities Fund investors" ("PPCO"). [267] The Court also has considered the Receiver's response and concurs with the Receiver that PPCO's concerns are not well founded. However, as the Receiver has no objection to adding the following language: "(e.g., pay out on a life insurance policy or realization of a litigation outcome purchase)" after the phrase "settlement of a transaction" in the third sentence of paragraph 30, that paragraph has been amended accordingly, and the proposed Second Amended Order Appointing Receiver is approved in the form attached to this Electronic Order.
