Feds want Google data in 21 days.

Summary:The Justice Dept. filed a brief asking a judge to set a deadline for Google to turn over its user data - in three weeks.

From News.com:

In court documents submitted Thursday to U.S. District Judge James Ware in San Jose, Calif., federal prosecutors said they need a prompt response because of the compressed schedule of the case. They're asking Ware to set a 21-day deadline that would begin as soon as he makes a decision.

"Delay in this court's resolution of the motion to compel would be unwarranted," the three-page brief says.

The judge in Google v Gonzales has set a hearing for tomorrow, March 14. The judge in the underlying case about the Child Online Protection Act wants expert testimony submitted by May 3, hence the government's haste in getting the Google matter resolved.
