The federal bankruptcy trustee assigned to the Dodgers case told the judge today that the law firms representing the Dodgers — who have billed Frank McCourt some $1.66 million thus far — have overcharged, billing for services that were neither necessary nor required. He is requesting that the bill be reduced by 21%.
You know, you used to be able to believe in stuff in this country. You used to believe that fair play and an honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay and all of that. And then we learn that a law firm has allegedly over-billed a millionaire for legal services that will be paid for out of some mishmash of corporate bank accounts that no one will ever closely examine.
I may need to take the rest of the day off to process this.
