Justice Department Informs Court of Google Antitrust Investigation

The Justice Department has sent a July 2 letter to Judge Denny Chin informing the court of the antitrust investigation of the Google Books settlement. The judge responded with an order that the government would need to submit substantive comments by September 18, in advance of the October 7 fairness hearing. Nothing terribly new, but an interesting incremental step at the Kabuki-dance level of this story.
