The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. United States District Judge
On July 9, 2008, Examiner Steven A. Harr filed a first interim application to allow payment of the fees and expenses of the Examiner and the fees and expenses of Munsch Hardt Kopf & Harr, P.C.

The Examiner submits MHKH's billing invoices as evidence of the hours worked. As a review of the billing invoices shows the hours billed by the Examiner and MHKH were reasonably expended, the motion is granted. The Examiner and MHKH are hereby awarded $18,051.00 in fees and $1,133.55 in costs, to be paid from the receivership assets.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
