    Sears creditors object to Eddie Lampert's winning bid, call it part of 'years-long scheme'

    A group of Sears creditors are challenging Chairman Eddie Lampert's hedge fund's winning $5.2 billion bid to buy the business in a bankruptcy auction and wants to air their grievances in court. Sears (SHLDQ)  confirmed Thursday that Lampert's hedge fund won tentative approval for the plan to buy 425 stores and the rest of its assets. “ESL's bid to 'save the company' is nothing but the final fulfillment of a years-long scheme to deprive Sears and its creditors of assets and its employees of jobs while lining Lampert's and ESL's own pockets,” the filing says.
