Judge Approves All Meridian Fee Applications

Law360, New York (April 18, 2007, 12:00 AM EDT) -- A federal bankruptcy judge has approved over $30 million to the professionals who worked on Meridian Automotive Systems Inc.’s bankruptcy proceedings.

Except for Sidley Austin LLP, which represents Meridian and voluntarily reduced its invoice by $26,000, all 20 professional entities involved in the case received exactly what they had requested on their final fee applications.

Sidley Austin received the most of any firm, however, garnering nearly $10.7 million in fees and expenses for work performed since Meridian slipped into bankruptcy in May 2005.
