Version 1.0 of the proposed Google Book Search (GBS) Settlement is history, pushed into the dustbin by hundreds of submissions urging Judge Denny Chin to reject it, none more devastating than the one filed by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) just last Friday.

On the second day after the DOJ came out against the settlement, Michael Boni and Bruce Keller, the lead lawyers for the author and publisher plaintiffs, asked Judge Chin for an indefinite postponement of the scheduled October 7 fairness hearing.
