Updated on

Eddie Lampert will get another shot at rescuing Sears Holdings Corp. from liquidation.

The Sears chairman and former chief executive officer must put up $120 million by Wednesday to get a chance to take part in an auction against other bidders, Ray Schrock, Sears’s lead attorney, said at a court hearing Tuesday. Of that amount, $17.9 million is non-refundable, he said. As many as 50,000 jobs are at stake.
