A blended billing rate of $457 per hour!
TD, any CIT update? They going to file tomorrow?
You didn't include the addendum invoice: paper clips $150,000.00
Just imagine when we start billing the Gov't (taxpayers) for health care:
"Right there on Page 16 (of the 100+ page doc) is a provision making individual private medical insurance illegal."
Is this happening next week ?
Goldman Sachs in Talks to Acquire Treasury Department
In what some on Wall Street are calling the biggest blockbuster deal
in the history of the financial sector, Goldman Sachs confirmed today
that it was in talks to acquire the U.S. Department of the Treasury.
According to Goldman spokesperson Jonathan Hestron, the merger
Goldman and the Treasury Department is “a good fit” because “they’re
in the business of printing money and so are we.”
The Goldman spokesman said that the merger would create efficiencies
for both entities: “We already have so many employees and so much
money flowing back and forth, this would just streamline things.”
Mr. Hestron said the only challenge facing Goldman in completing the
merger “is trying to figure out which parts of the Treasury Dept. we
don’t already own.”
Goldman recently celebrated record earnings by roasting a suckling
over a bonfire of hundred-dollar bills.
Elsewhere, conspiracy theorists celebrated the 40th anniversary of
NASA faking the moon landing.
And in South Carolina, Gov. Mark Sanford gave his wife a new diamond
ring, while his wife gave him an electronic ankle bracelet.
Hah, wait until the financial advisors bill shows up with its bonuses!

Hey Anonymous, Re your comment: "Goldman Sachs in Talks to Acquire Treasury Department" How about giving credit to "The Borowitz Report " when you reprint/steal, word for word, his blog posts.
A bargain at even twice the price!

$135 for reading a document for 30mins. Nice work if you can get it.
Now I'm no lawyer, but some of the "research charges" seem to be for items that most lawyers should know already
Lexis Charges for research regarding legislative history of bankruptcy code or research regarding section 101 of the bankruptcy code? Did they charge for their time in law school too?
That's likely legitimate. They're not trying to find out what section 101 says; they're trying to find a case or a piece of legislative history that frames it in just the right way to support their point. There's no way to just know that offhand. You need to comb through the cases and the Congressional records to find it.
