I have some shares of stock that are Chapter 11 and trading has been "halted". My on-line broker tells me that I cannot unload these (for tax right-off purposes) to anyone for any price until trading resumes. Am I stuck waiting for trading to resume (though I suspect the shares are to be "canceled" by the company and will therefore never resume)? I'm waiting for Roy's book in the mail. Any advice is appreciated in the mean time. Thanks in advance. PAG

Try looking at some (very) recent threads here. A search for "worthless" should give several interesting conversations.
