    Holocaust-Reparations Lawyer Will Likely Get Paid Back in October, Joel Siegel’s feature in New York told the story of Burt Neuborne, an NYU law professor who took on the monumental task of extracting Holocaust reparations from Swiss banks. In the eyes of some survivors, Neuborne went from hero to villain the moment he submitted his bill: $4,760,000 for 8,178 hours spent working on the case over eight years, or roughly $582 an hour. Prominent Jews registered their disgust with Neuborne, calling his request for payment “a moral disgrace.” A federal judge suggested on Thursday that Neuborne receive $3 million, an amount that will have to be approved by a federal district judge. Neuborne said he had “no quarrel” with the proposed fee, and Magistrate Judge James Orenstein asked the litigants to agree on an amount: “I … appeal to each individual participant in this litigation to find a way to continue to help redress the evil the Nazis began so long ago rather than let it continue to spread rancor among its victims.” $3 Million Fee Suggested for Neuborne for Work on Holocaust Survivor Issues [Law.com] Getting His Due [NYM]
