The Delaware Bankruptcy Court has ruled that professional fees are not limited to the amount of the “carve-out” approved as part of a postpetition financing order. In In re MolyCorp, Judge Sontchi ruled that counsel fees, which are otherwise approved by the court, must be paid to confirm a plan of reorganization, even if the approved fees exceed the “carve-out” amount. Trade Creditors should pay particularly close attention to this ruling.
