Freedom Legal Team Denied Some Payments
A judge won't let Freedom Industries reimburse its legal team for sending multiple lawyers to hearings or for travel costs. Judge Ronald Pearson denied several Freedom Industries requests to pay law firms for work during bankruptcy proceedings. Pearson objected to firms overstaffing meetings and hearings, charging full rates for travel and asking for excessive reimbursement. The court granted some requests, but denied thousands of dollars in fees and requested more information on hundreds of thousands more.
