The September invoice for the DMHSA Team was approved by District Court Judge Consuelo Marshall.
Judge Marshall used the same language that District Court Judge Francis Tyduingco-Gatewood uses when approving similar labor invoices from the Federal Receiver building the new Lazon Landfill. The Judge called it “reasonable.”
The $200 dollar hourly rate for each of the Federal Managers is $60 dollars an hour less than what the Senior Managers of Federal Receiver Gershman, Brickner and Bratton [GBB] are making for their oversight of the construction of the new landfill in Lazon.
GBB President Harvey Gershman and Special Principal Associate David Manning are making $260 dollars an hour.
GBB’s August invoice shows:
Harvey Gershman 9.75 hrs @ $260.00 $ 2,535.00
Special Principal Associate 182 hrs @ $260.00 $47,320.00
