In re Clinton County Hospital, Inc.

(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.
