WatchmenWatch: Settlement status report filed; hearing todayThu Jan 15, 2009 @ 09:39AM PST
By Eriq Gardner
According to the filing, the parties are "continuing to address a few remaining settlement issues" and have requested a hearing today at 3:30 PM "to report on a final resolution or, alternatively, to discuss how to proceed on January 20, 2009." Nothing like deadlines to get the ball rolling.
Here's the filed status report.
UPDATED: The hearing is now scheduled for tomorrow at 9:30 am, at which point the parties will announce they have settled the case.
2ND UPDATE: Warners and Fox are still denying the settlement is final. But bottom line, it's all done except for the signatures.
