In a letter to Magistrate Judge Robert Lehrburger dated July 31, attorney Glenn Pomerantz said the states are requesting a new trial-ready date of Dec. 9 or as soon after that date that the court can schedule the trial, adding that the Oct. 7 trial date proposed earlier is "unworkable."
The states said they are still awaiting documents from the companies and it may take until late next month until they receive them. The companies "now unfairly seek to sandbag (the suing) states by forcing them to go to trial in just two months on a new transaction they have not had an opportunity to fully examine."
Judge Lehrburger has set a hearing for Thursday on the case in New York.
