Lehman Ch11

Doesn't this need approval of the court ?
I would also assume the creditors have first dibs.

Lehman in New Talks to Sell Assets to Barclays - WSJ.com
Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. Monday night was negotiating a last-minute plan to sell large portions of itself to Barclays PLC, the U.K. bank that has been circling the U.S. investment house. Barclays Americas Chairman Archibald Cox Jr. was leading the talks, and an agreement is hoped to be reached by Tuesday, said a person involved in the talks.

Lehman's top executives were huddled at the bank's Manhattan headquarters trying to craft a plan that would preserve many Lehman jobs and operations, say people briefed on the discussions....

Many questions remain, chief among them, the price that Barclays might pay for Lehman, whose holding company is now in Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. That structure allows it to sell off other assets without liquidating, and gives it additional time to reach an agreement.

The troubled assets, such as mortgage securities, will be left behind in the holding company for creditors to liquidate as they see fit, said people familiar with the deal.
