From Publishers Weekly:
In an order posted Wednesday, federal judge Denny Chin said the fairness hearing for the Google Book Search Settlement scheduled for October 7 will go forward, and acknowledged receipt of more than 400 written filings.
I was also interested to see that my own Representative, Zoe Lofgren weighed in and “suggested that Congress should stay away. “At this point, we don’t have a role to play,” she said, adding that the settlement was “the private sector achieving what we failed to achieve” in terms of legislation.
Parties to the settlement have until October 2 to respond to the filings. I guess we will all just have to stay tuned to see how this turns out.
