Reporting Obligation of Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 2013
FRBP 2013 Public Record of Compensation Awarded to Trustees, Examiners, and Professionals states:
(a) Record To Be Kept. The clerk shall maintain a public record listing fees awarded by the court (1) to trustees and attorneys, accountants, appraisers, auctioneers and other professionals employed by the trustees, and (2) to examiners. The record shall include the name and docket number of the case, the name of the individual or firm receiving the fee and the amount of the fee awarded. The record shall be maintained chronologically and shall be kept current and open to examination by the public without charge. “Trustees,” as used in this rule, does not include debtors in possession.
(b) Summary of Record. At the close of each annual period, the clerk shall prepare a summary of the public record by individual or firm name, to reflect total fees awarded during the preceding year. The summary shall be open to examination by the public without charge. The clerk shall transmit a copy of the summary to the United States trustee.
Current, Chronological Record
A current, chronological record of fees awarded can be viewed and printed on public computer terminals located in the clerk’s office at each courthouse location. Those with electronic filing accounts in ECF or through PACER can generate a current record of fees awarded through Reports → Professional Fees Awarded. See how to establish a PACER account. NOTE: Records retrieved from ECF and PACER list the fees awarded by individual/firm and then case number - which is identical to the annual summary format - rather than in the chronological format available at the public computer terminals.
