Nearly 300 creditors are listed in the petition, with 19 credit unions among the top 20 unsecured creditors.

* Chairperson, Chris Conway, Educational Systems FCU, Greenbelt, Md. * Lisa Mingoia, Suffolk FCU, Medford, N.Y.; * Robert N. Squillante, Picatinny FCU, Dover, N.J.; * Alfred Scipio, Treasury Department FCU, Washington, D.C.; * Harry R. Jacobson, Pinnacle FCU, Edison, N.J.; * Ann M. South, Novartis FCU, East Hanover, N.J.; and * Ronald P. Roy, Energy FCU, Rockville, Md.
Attorney for the committee is Carollyn Callari of Venable LLP, New York, N.Y. According to documents filed Monday, a hearing on a motion for relief from a stay and order granting Sovereign Bank relief from an automatic stay will begin at 11 a.m. EDT on May 11 in Newark.
