Anthonys Urges Approval of Plan for Compensation


Titus, Nancy Raiden, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Attorneys for C.R. Anthony Co. on Wednesday urged bankruptcy court approval for the company's proposed compensation plan which would reduce some salaries but give top executives incentives for early confirmation of a plan of reorganization.

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Paul B. Lindsey said he would take the matter under advisement but indicated that he was concerned about rewarding the management which brought the company to its Chapter 11 filing in the first place.

"A Chapter 11 operates with the debtor in possession," he said.

"That may not be the way it should be or the way everybody wants it to be, but it is a fact that this court deals with."

The judge's comments were similar to objections raised earlier by Mark Toffoli, attorney for the U. …
