Judge Sets Hearing Date in Google Subpoena Case

by , Comments

Declan McCullagh's: Court date set for Google lawsuit, says that U.S. District Judge James Ware has announced that a hearing regarding the subpoena asking Google to turn over search records to the U.S. Department of Justice will take place one month from today, February 27, 2006, at 9am in California Northern District Court in San Jose.

Ware also set a date of Feb. 6 for Google to file a legal brief with its arguments, and a Feb. 13 date for the Justice Department to submit its reply. Ware is no stranger to technology cases. He heard the Sex.com case in 2001, a spam lawsuit in 1998, and a legal spat between RealNetworks and Microsoft in 2004.

A brief bio of Judge Ware is available from the Federal Judicial Center.

I've posted a copy of the actual court filing with the schedule here (PDF). I've also placed a copy of the latest court docket (as of Thursday, expect updates) on the server.

You can find the full text of other key court documents filed to this point in this blog post.
