Fifth Time the Charm?

This article from Bloomberg details the (latest) new and improved bankruptcy reorganization plan for Owens Corning.

This is now OC's fifth try at gaining approval for a plan to pay off thousands of asbestos claims which forced the company into bankruptcy in October of 2000.

As the article points out some observers are hopeful that a solution may finally be at hand:

"This plan may be the final road map for resolving all the mega-asbestos bankruptcies being heard in Delaware...Everyone will be cheering if this gets approved.''

For more specific details on the plan see this article.

...and from a similiar story see this press release for information on the rejection of Armstrong World Industries' Reorganization Plan by the U.S. 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals.
