GBS: Government’s Filing Date is February 4

A small bit of housekeeping on the docket this morning. When the parties filed their proposed schedule for the amended settlement, they suggested February 4 as a deadline for the U.S. government to submit its views. Judge Chin’s scheduling order, however, didn’t actually set such a deadline. The Department of Justice wrote a letter to Judge Chin, saying they were also fine with February 4, and ask him to formally approve that deadline. He did.
