Court Accepts ABA/B&N Brief in DoJ Price Fixing Case – Publisher’s Weekly – Jim Milliot
The ABA and Barnes & Noble joint motion to file a friend of the court brief as part of the hearing to approve the final settlement between the Department of Justice and Hachette, Simon & Schuster and HarperCollins has been granted by Judge Denise Cote who will rule on the judgment later this year. In granting the motion, however, Judge Cote determined that the two organizations’ motion would serve as the amicus brief and that no new submissions would be permitted.
Oh boy oh boy. The DoJ drama increases!
