Polaroid's Motion for Use of Cash Collateral can be accessed here.  It seems Polaroid is owned by one Petters Group Worldwide, owned in turn by one Thomas J. Petters, newly arrested and indicted on "numerous fraud and other charges."  The Motion alleges that Petters caused Polaroid to "very recently" pledge its assets "to secure substantial debts and investments for which Polaroid received no or inadequate consideration."  It is having difficulty getting financing - duh.   According to the motion, Polaroid intends to sell "the Polaroid business and related assets."

No wonder the Polaroid cameras are junk. Cannot get a driver download to work and it is impossible to contact Polaroid.
