The parties have asked the judge to delay their filing deadline until Friday. Yes, until Friday the 13th. The New York Times reports:
But on Monday, the parties submitted a letter to the court requesting an extension to Nov. 13. In the letter, the group indicated that it had met with the Justice Department before and after the October status hearing and had met as recently as Friday, Nov. 6.
I am eager to see this letter.
UPDATE 3:40 PM: Ask and ye shall receive: Judge Chin’s order granting the request.
