Bankruptcy Attorney To Charge $100,000
Editor’s Note: We are publishing the e-mail letter below from Attorney Michael Sweet to Modoc County Board of Supervisors Chair Dan Macsay as it appears in an attachment to the agenda for Monday’s special meeting of the board. Use the "zoom" feature under "view" on your computer to view it.
This is for the purpose of leaving little doubt as to what the board will be discussing. Of further note, Sweet informed the Modoc Independent News last Wednesday that Modoc County was “a long way from Chapter 9.”
While the amendment to the county engagement letter with McNutt Law Group requires a $100,000 additional retainer for the “preparation of "materials” for bankruptcy, it does not include fees for actual filing for bankruptcy.
Sweet did not immediately respond to a message left at his San Francisco office asking for further details.
