Heller’s Application for Special Employment Litigation Counsel

While I haven’t received a recent docket update, I understand that Heller has applied to employ Manatt Phelps as Special Employment Litigation Counsel during the bankruptcy proceedings.  I’ll have the document posted along with all over docket updates tomorrow.

In the meantime, let me see if I get this: Heller wants the costs of defending itself against the ex-Heller employee claims to be covered by the estate yet we, as employees, can’t even get ourselves a separate Employees’ Committee let alone a seat on the Unsecured Creditors Committee?  Is this how you see it as well?

    That’s exactly how I see it, too. I even emailed the Trustee’s counsel again last week to follow up on the status of our mass request to establish an Employees’ Committee, but never heard back.

    There are a couple of new filings on Pacer, including some info on sharheholder comp, capital accounts, and a monthly operating statement. It will be interesting to look through these to see what’s going on in there.

    The monthly operating report is a very important informational document. I look forward to seeing that.
