Hopkins v. Asset Acceptance LLC (In re Salgado-Nava)

Appellant chapter 7 Trustee sought $1,315 in fees for his service as a trustee. He based his request on the trustee compensation rates set forth in 11 U.S.C.S. § 326(a). The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Idaho, however, found that the reasonable value of his services only amounted to $750 and limited his fees to that amount. He appealed. Appellees were all unsecured creditors who filed proofs of claim in debtor's bankruptcy case.
Ruling: 
Bankruptcy court erred in limiting trustee's fees based on value of services.
