California to answer fees plea
on Aug 4, 2011 at 4:41 pm
The state of California has gained some added time to answer the request that it be required to reimburse the video game industry for more than $1.1 million for legal fees and expenses after the state lost its appeal to the Supreme Court n Brown v. Entertainment Merchants Associaton (08-1448).Â The response, initially due on August 2, is now due by August 15, under a Court order.
The Court is treating the fee request as it would a normal motion under Rule 21, rather than under any rule that deals with fees or costs for matters the Court has considered.Â Under Rule 21, a response is ordinarily due ten days after a motion has been filed, but this can be extended at the other side’s request.Â California obtained such an extension late last month.
