In addition, Connecticut Assistant Attorney General Gary Becker told Cote that all 50 states should be settling with Hachette, HarperCollins, and Simon & Schuster -- the publishers who have already settled with the DOJ -- by August 10. "We are in the process of getting the other states to sign on," Becker said. "I think we're off to a good start. I have no reason to believe they won’t sign up."
Separately, the deadline to submit public comment on the DOJ's settlement with Hachette, HarperCollins, and Simon & Schuster is midnight tonight.
