Files Amendment to Motion Regarding Abandoned Property, Returns
Remaining Keys to Closed Facilities
Diamond Glass has filed an amendment to its original motion authorizing
it to reject nunc pro tunc to the date of filing certain
unexpired non-residential real property leases and to abandon any
property that remains on the premises. In the original motion, Diamond
claimed that it "had made an unequivocal expression of [its] intention
to reject the Leases" and "that they had 'vacated the Closed Locations
and returned the keys when appropriate to the respective landlords
of the Closed Locations," according to court documents.
After the original filing, though, Diamond officials determined
that "they had inadvertently retained keys for seven of the ten
Closed Locations." The amended motion says that upon this discovery,
five keys were returned by overnight delivery, one by hand delivery
and the last by certified mail.
Earlier court documents in the Diamond bankruptcy case noted that
all of Diamond's facilities, including its headquarters, are leased,
along with all of its vehicles (CLICK

- Everett, Mass. (#717);
- Bogart/Athens, Ga. (#204);
- Shawnee, Ks. (#209);
- Augusta, Ga. (#168);
- Montgomery, Ala. (#210);
- Dothan, Ala. (#256);
