Full Biography: Wayne R. Walker

The 6th distribution to general unsecured claimholders and bondholders was completed in November 2009. Currently the majority of Trust activity is focused on completing required environmental remediation at former locations. In addition, the Trustee maintains oversight for general Trust administration requirements including annual tax filings, quarterly UST reporting, investigation of potential additional assets and maintenance of books and records. Restitutions and unclaimed funds also continue to be collected by third parties on behalf of the Trust.

The Trustee's intent remains to wind-down the Trust as expeditiously as possible. Please contact the Dairy Mart Liquidating Trust with any questions at or 215-569-1660.
