(Bankr. W.D. Ky. Sep. 3, 2015)
The bankruptcy court denies the debtor’s motion to employ the law firm as special counsel nunc pro tunc. The debtor sought to employ the firm for its expertise in a particular area of law. However, the motion was filed eight months after the bankruptcy was commenced. Thus, while the motion met many of the factors necessary to employ a professional under 11 U.S.C. § 327, the delay in filing the motion was not satisfactorily explained to the court. Thus, the motion is denied. Opinion below.
