1 CROSS-EXAMINATION (cont'd)
2 BY MR. TRABULUS:
3 Q Good morning, Mr. Skalka, I think when we left off.
4 JUROR NO. 6: There is a switch underneath.
5 Q Good morning, Mr. Skalka.
6 A Good morning.
7 Q I think when we left off I was talking to you about
8 Chapter 11 Trustees, and the fact that typically Chapter
9 11 debtors don't want to have them.
10 Now, is it true that a Chapter 11 Trustee
11 typically gets paid a fee?
12 A A Chapter 11 Trustee is entitled to, yes, subjects to
13 court approval.
14 Q And in most instances a Chapter 11 Trustee is an
15 attorney, in many instances?
16 A In many, and not all.
17 Q In this particular case, the case of Who's Who, a
18 Chapter 11 Trustee was eventually appointed, was he not?
19 A Yes.
20 Q His name was Mr. Mendelsohn?
21 A Yes.
22 Q And is it fair to say that the fee that a Chapter 11
23 Trustee receives comes out of the debtor's property?
24 A Yes. In a bankruptcy case it is called the debtor's
25 estate.

1 Q If you don't mind, I would like to use the word
2 "property."
3 So, if a debtor is trying to continue his
4 operations, the bankruptcy trustee would represent an
5 additional potential drain on his income; would that not
6 be correct?
7 A No. Because usually the trustee would replace
8 certain members of existing management, therefore the
9 savings by replacing management is offset by the trustee's
10 fee, usually it ends up in being a wash.
11 Q You are saying in most cases the trustee's fee would
12 equal that of existing management?
13 A In most cases, they don't want to increase the
14 administration cost of the estate and want to see it act
15 as a wash.
16 Q In this particular case do you know what fee has been
17 applied for by the trustee to date?
18 A I know what the trustee's counsel has sought as far
19 as fees. I do not believe the trustee has received any
20 fees.
21 Q So, the trustee not only asks for fees, but the
22 trustee hires an attorney in many instances?
23 A In many instances, yes.
24 Q In this particular case the trustee did hire an
25 attorney, correct, with court approval?

HARRY RAPAPORT, CSR, CP, CM OFFICIAL COURT REPORTER

Skalka-cross/Trabulus


1 A Yes.
2 Q And the attorney has put in a fee application at this
3 point; is that correct?
4 A That's correct.
5 Q And is that fee application in excess of $300,000?
6 A To the best of my knowledge, yes.

This site is concerned with the Who's Who Worldwide Registry tragedy, and the double scandal of government and judical corruption in one of the Dirtiest Trials In The Past 100 Years and the concomitant news media blackout regarding this incredible story.

Sixteen weeks of oft-explosive testimony, yet not a word in any of 1200 news archives. This alone supports the claim that this was a genuinely dirty trial; in fact, one of the dirtiest federal trials of the 20th century.

Show your support for justice, for exoneration of the innocent, and perhaps most importantly, government accountability, by urgently contacting your Senator, the White House, and the U.S. Department of Justice.
