U.S. District Judge Denise Cote (Manhattan, NY) has set a trial date for the eBook price-fixing case brought by the U.S. Department of Justice.

HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster, and Hachette had already settled with the DOJ, and plan to submit proposed settlements to Judge Cote within a few months to resolve state antitrust claims arising out of the same actions.
