On Tuesday, right before end of day, Epic revealed that it’s never actually formally discussed settling with Google, and Judge Donato ordered a settlement conference before we go to jury verdict.
This morning, the judge got clearer: Epic must file demands by 9AM Saturday. “The demand is going to be all-inclusive, detailed, and specific,” he says.
Google gets 24 hours to respond: “Google will serve an all-inclusive, detailed response... by 9AM on Monday morning,” he adds. The settlement conference will be just four people: Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney, Google’s “right person to sign an enforceable deal,” and lead attorneys for both parties.
