In re McEver (07-53256)

The Chapter 11 debtor filed an application asking the court to approve the employment of David Judah as attorney for the debtor under 11 U.S.C. ยง 327(a). The United States trustee argued that Mr. Judah was not a disinterested person because an attorney in Mr. Judah's law firm was an officer of a corporation that was owned by the debtor. The court held that Mr. Judah was not disqualified from representing the debtor. The court noted that the corporation had a legal existence separate and apart from its officers and shareholders.
