In the Reagor-Dykes bankruptcy case, Ford Motor Credit has filed a motion in court, objecting to the employment of the Mullin Hoard & Brown law firm, which represented Reagor-Dykes from August 1st to August 21st.

The law firm is seeking payment for their work during that time period. According to court documents, Bart Reagor and Rick Dykes used a personal retainer of $500,000 to secure the services of Mullin Hoard & Brown, but Ford says the retainer wasn’t disclosed beforehand or approved by the bankruptcy court.

Ford also claims that the hiring of Mullin Hoard & Brown represents a conflict of interest, since the firm has also represented Rick Dykes in the past. The bankruptcy court will review the objecting during a scheduled October 5th meeting.
