Midway clings to life after favorable court ruling

Jason Dobson

After throwing up the white flag last week, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court has granted Midway some some breathing room from creditors who are all but beating down the door for a piece of the embattled publisher. The ruling allows Midway to keep its doors open despite its ongoing financial crisis in order to continue paying employee expenses and pay back what the court describes as certain "critical vendors."

Midway boss Matt Booty describes the court's decision as a key step in the company's "planned and orderly reorganization," though we're sure the words he was really looking for were complicated and terrifying. It's probably difficult to come up with the right thing to say after someone plunges an arm into your chest to remove your still-beating heart.
