U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Kevin Cary has ruled that lawyers for the Tribune Company’s bankruptcy case cannot charge hourly fees that exceed four figures.

Lawyers from Sidley Austin LLP , who is representing Tribune in the case, wanted hourly rates that went as high as $1,100.  That is the highest rate ever sought for a firm dealing in bankruptcy reorganization.  Cary capped the hourly payments at $925, and said that if anyone wants more than $1000, they must attend a hearing where the lawyer proves he or she is worth such a price.
