Alex:The Notice is really a notice to all interested parties who belong to the specific classes listed. (There are 2 classes listed in the Notice with common stockholders being one of them, and the only one I am writing about.) The notice says that the bankruptcy judge has already approved MFNXQ's Summary of Plan Distribution ("Summary") and that there will be a hearing on August 21, 2003 concerning objections that any common stockholders have to the Summary. From past experience, this hearing is only a technicality and the judge's approval of the Summary proceeds. From what I remember of the Summary MFNXQ filed, the common stockholders lose out.As to the rest of your message, sorry but I'm not a tax attorney and cannot provide advise as to what to do or how to do it. I just know that in the past I foolishly (with a small 'f') invested in PSINet that also went bankrupt. After everything was said and done, my stockbroker purchased all my worthless shares for $1.00. I then was able to offset the loss dollar for dollar against any gain I had in the sale of other stocks. Again, since I do not practice in this area of law and am no expert but a fellow Fool who is learning day in and day out, I suggest that instead of relying on my word that you contact your stockbroker/tax accountant/tax attorney and find out what you can do in your situation. There are also probably a few good articles by TMF concerning when companies go bankrupt. Lastly, you can check out the SEC's website that has a section about bankruptcies at http://www.sec.gov/investor/pubs/bankrupt.htm.Good luck in your future investing and remain Foolish. Remember, always do your own DD and don't rely on what someone else says.
