The Authors Guild et al v. Google Inc.
ORDER, that on September 22, 2009, plaintiffs moved for an adjournment of the fairness hearing currently scheduled for October 7, 2009. Defendant Google, Inc. does not oppose the motion. Under all the circumstances, it makes no sense to conduct a hearing on the fairness and reasonableness of the current settlement agreement, as it does not appear that the currentsettlement will be the operative one. Accordingly, the Court will not proceed with the fairness hearing on October 7, 2009. The Court will, however, conduct a status conference on October 7 at 10 00 a.m. to determine how to proceed with the case as expeditiously as possible, as this case has now been pending for over four years The parties shall attend. Additional relief as set forth in this Order. (Signed by Judge Denny Chin on 9/24/09) (pl)
