Judge Denny Chin has granted a request by attorneys representing the Authors Guild and the AAP to move the deadline for submitting revisions to the Google Book Search settlement from November 9 to “no later than this Friday, November 13.” In the letter requesting the extension, attorney Michael Boni explained that: “The parties have been in discussions with the Department of Justice both prior to and since the October 7 status conference. We met with the Department as recently as this past Friday, November 6. In light of the above, the parties respectfully request this additional time to file the motion.”
