The Orders/Minutes from the 6/17 Bankruptcy Hearing
Saturday, June 21 2008 @ 03:06 AM EDT

We have the Order [PDF] now granting SCO's motion for an extension of time to come up with a reorganization plan, along with the minutes from the hearing [PDF] on June 17, along with various certificates of service. The order gives SCO until August 11 to file a plan, but it can ask for more extensions if it needs more. Like it won't.

And the judge OK'd all the quarterly bills [PDF], listed in an Exhibit A [PDF]. So let's see. That's $71,982.79 for Pachulski Stang; $414,074.83 for Berger Singerman [zowie]; $125,930.70 for Mesirow; $161,608.00 for Tanner; and $100,292.62 for Dorsey & Whitney. They don't total it all up, so I will. SCO has received bills in the period from January 1-March 31, 2008 totaling $873,888.94, unless I zoned out while doing the adding. That is just for one quarter. The bills are still being filed. Not for business. Just for legal stuff. Lawyers and financial analysts and accountants for the bankruptcy.

Oh. I almost forgot. $0 for Novell.

Keep in mind, though, the words on page 2 of the order, "provided, however, that all fees and expenses paid pursuant to this Order are subject to final allowance by the Court pursuant to the terms of the Interim Compensation Order." You know what I couldn't help noticing? It probably just means no one asked to get the name removed from the list, but I see that Scott McNutt still gets all the notices. He's the attorney for York.
