Yahoo! Files $11,000 Administrative Claim in Diamond Case
June 3, 2009

Yahoo! HotJobs has filed an administrative claim in the amount of $11,148.10 against Diamond Glass for "certain amounts that [Diamond] failed to remit to Yahoo! Post-petition." According to the claim statement, filed in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware, Yahoo! had submitted three invoices, totaling the amount of the claim, between May 28 and June 20, 2008 for post-petition recruiting/advertising services on its HotJobs site.

The company alleges that it continued to provide these services to Diamond from May 28, 2008, through November 27, 2008, even though the company had not paid for the service since filing for bankruptcy on April 1, 2008.

"In the present case, Yahoo! is entitled to administrative expense priority," writes the company. "The administrative claim relates to amounts that the Debtor was required to remit to Yahoo! for post-petition recruiting/advertising services that it provided through November 27, 2008."

The statement continues, "Moreover, the Debtor has undoubtedly benefited from receiving the support services from Yahoo!."

The statement was filed with the court on May 22 by the law firms of Pinckney, Harris & Weidinger LLC and Bialson, Bergen & Schawb, counsel for Yahoo! Inc.
