Law Offices of David A. Boone v. Derham-Burk (11/13/06 – No. 03-16814) (9th Cir.Ct.App)
A judgment awarding the attorney a portion of his requested fees in a bankruptcy case is affirmed in part and reversed in part where: 1) the bankruptcy court’s use of the presumptive no-look guideline fees for routine Chapter 13 cases was consistent with 11 U.S.C. section 330; 2) the court’s criterion for awarding additional fees beyond the presumptive no-look fees was proper under section 330; and 3) a failure to hold a hearing on the application for additional fees violated Bankruptcy Rule 2017(b).
