The ruling on the attorney fees is subject to motions for reconsideration and appeals.

The complex case started Dec. 27, 2011, when three suppliers filed PACA claims against San Antonio companies Delta Produce LP and Superior Tomato & Avocado in federal court. Delta and Superior — who bought and sold produce from each other — filed for bankruptcy on Jan. 3 this year.

Under Akard’s ruling, Muller Trading will receive reimbursement for $9,888 of its attorney fees in the case" sounds like the judge spanked a few attorneys for overbilling - who spends $28900 to collect 27800. 9800 is more than fair attorney fees
