CNBC had Patriarch Partners founder Lynn Tilton on earlier to discuss the battle (30 bids and counterbids) over Polaroid. Tilton says, despite making a higher offer than liquidators by a few million to buy the company out of Chapter 11, her firm lost because she “wasn’t liked.” Patriarch will be in court on Monday, filing a temporary restraining order to stop the deal from closing, and Tilton has vowed to “fight” this thing to the death. Will she bring her whip and ass-kicking boots is the question.
