Litton's parent entities are publicly traded and close to insolvent. But they might get any number of bottom-feeder opportunist investors to prop up a legal fight for months if not years without completely losing everything they've stolen from borrowers and investors.Ameriquest - wounded whale.
Ameriquest is a privately held corporation and the small number of stockholders probably have hundreds of millions in assets, albeit mostly stashed carefully. They aren't going to get a behind the scenes rescue. And their bankruptcy may not protect those asssets.
Litton - tiny fish.
