The bankruptcy filing by Florida-based GPS Industries, a manufacturer of golf course global positioning systems, has left 17 firms out more than $875,000 in legal fees. The bulk of the fees are owed to two midsize firms that represented the struggling company.

GPSI listed $2.9 million in assets and $28 million in liabilities when it filed for Chapter 11 in Tampa on Friday.
