Authors Guild tries to delay October 7th hearing on $125m Google Books Search settlement

New York Law School Associate Professor James Grimmelmann of the blog The Laboratorium reports that the Authors Guild and its ally, the Association of American Publishers, have filed a legal motion and memorandum to delay the October 7, 2009, fairness hearing on the proposed $125 million Google Books Search settlement. The reason: “It is clear that the complex issues raised in the U.S. Statement of Interest preclude submission of an amended settlement agreement by October 7.”
