In re Starbak Inc.

Interim fees denied to debtor's counsel whose retention had not been approved.
Procedural posture: 
Movant, counsel for debtor, sought an interim award of fees and costs for representing debtor following an involuntary bankruptcy filing. Both the United States Trustee (UST) and the Chapter 11 trustee objected to the application on grounds including that compensation from the estate for work performed after the Chapter 11 trustee's appointment was barred by the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Lamie v. United States and by 11 U.S.C.S. § 330(a).
