ORDER CONFIRMING UNDISPUTED FEES AND COSTS FOR THE FIRST QUARTERLY STATEMENT OF 2009
In a February 11, 2009 Order, this Court established procedures by which plaintiffs are to collect periodic attorneys' fees and costs in this case in connection with their post-judgment work, including for all fee and expense requests from June 5, 2008 forward.
Pursuant to these procedures, plaintiffs delivered by hand-delivery their Quarterly Statement for the first quarter of 2009 covering the period January 1 -- March 31, 2009 to defendants on April 29, 2009. Defendants submitted their objections to plaintiffs' statement on May 29, 2009. The parties completed their meet and confer on July 21, 2009, and reached an agreement, as reflected in Exhibit A.
Defendants do not dispute the balance of $585,791.39 in fees and expenses for post-judgment work for the Quarterly Statement for the period January 1, 2009 -- March 31, 2009.
The parties agree to the total payment of $585,791.39 in undisputed fees and costs for post-judgment work for the period January 1, 2009 through March 31, 2009, which will become due and owing forty-five days from the entry of this Order.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiffs' fees and costs of $585,791.39, plus interest, are due and collectable as of forty-five (45) days from the date of entry of this Order. Interest on these fees and costs will run from June 1, 2009 accruing at the rate provided by 28 U.S.C. § 1961.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
