The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has received more than 800 letters in public commentary in regards to the proposed ebook pricing settlement.
In a letter sent to Judge Cote, DOJ attorney Mark Ryan explained that they need time to read, sort and address all of these replies. At this point, the letters should be posted by July 20th.
Here’s more from PaidContent: “The Department of Justice was supposed to publish all of the letters it has received about the ebook pricing settlement on its website by June 25. That did not happen. Earlier this week [Bob] Kohn, an attorney and CEO of Royalty Share who previously wrote a legal brief in support of Apple and the publishers (but does not work for any of the parties involved), sent Denise Cote, the judge presiding over the case, a letter stating that the DOJ’s failure to make the letters available to the public — and to provide its response to those comments — on time violates federal antitrust rules.”
