MyParalegalSpace hits the paralegal social scene
ParalegalGateway.com, a site devoted to everything paralegal-related, has launched the first social networking site for paralegals: MyParalegalSpace.me.com. If the name sounds slightly familiar, that's because it's meant to. The site was designed to mirror the popular social networking site MySpace.com. Unlike its counterpart, this site is specifically geared toward paralegals. MyParalegalSpace.me.com allows paralegals to share pictures, view blogs, and connect with other professionals in the industry. They can sign up and create their own profiles, much like on MySpace.com.

Delphi Corp. may owe more than $65 million in fees
Well-known law firms
such as Ernst & Young, LLP, PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLP, and FTI Consulting Inc., just to name a few, are asking to be paid. Since Michigan-based Delphi Corp. filed for bankruptcy, its expenses and fees have added up, and lawyers and advisers are asking for more than $65.5 million. This amount is to pay for four months of work done during the spring. A hearing will take place on October 25. Delphi Corp. employs 6,000 workers in Ohio and has another plant in Dayton that employs 600 workers. It plans to eventually close the Dayton plant.
