Yahoo! National News - Tue, 09/09/2014 - 05:25
(Reuters) - The law firm shepherding Detroit through the biggest-ever municipal bankruptcy has charged the city just over $26 million, according to a report on Monday from a court-appointed fee examiner. The supplemental report adds $3 million in fees and nearly $83,000 in expenses billed in March by Jones Day, the former law firm of Detroit's state-appointed emergency manager, Kevyn Orr. Those amounts were not included in the January-March quarterly report fee examiner Robert Fishman submitted to U.S. The addition of the March numbers brings Jones Day's total billing from July 2013 to March 2014 to $25.1 million in fees and $1 million in expenses.
