Document Number: 2013-14323
Type: Notice

Agency: Department of Justice
In 1996, in accordance with Congress's mandate in 28 U.S.C. 586(a)(3)(A), the United States Trustee Program (``USTP'') established Guidelines for Reviewing Applications for Compensation and Reimbursement of Expenses filed under 11 U.S.C. 330. See 28 CFR Part 58, Appendix A (``Appendix A guidelines''). The USTP has drafted additional guidelines for reviewing applications for compensation and reimbursement of expenses filed by attorneys in larger chapter 11 cases with $50 million or more in assets and $50 million or more in liabilities, aggregated for jointly administered cases. Single asset real estate cases, as defined in 11 U.S.C. 101(51B), filed under chapter 11 are excluded from these guidelines. These guidelines that apply to the USTP's review of applications for compensation filed by attorneys in larger chapter 11 cases will be published in the Federal Register and entitled Appendix BGuidelines for Reviewing Applications for Compensation and Reimbursement of Expenses Filed Under 11 U.S.C. 330 by Attorneys in Larger Chapter 11 Cases (``Appendix B guidelines''). Until the USTP adopts other superseding guidelines, the Appendix A guidelines will continue in effect for the USTP's review of applications filed under section 330 in: (1) Larger chapter 11 cases by those professionals seeking compensation who are not attorneys; (2) all chapter 11 cases with less than $50 million in assets and $50 million in liabilities, aggregated for jointly administered cases; (3) all chapter 11 single asset real estate cases; and (4) all cases under other chapters of the Bankruptcy Code. The USTP will continue to review and update these guidelines, as appropriate.
