In yet another twist, judge Denny Chin, who is still sitting by designation in the Google Book case, has declined to take the Authors Guild’s recent suit filed against a group of research libraries. The case was referred to Chin as “possibly related,” as the case revolves around fair use and Google’s library book scanning project. The case was assigned to judge Harold Baer, after Chin passed on the case, deeming it “not related.” The Google case, along with a parallel suit filed by photographers and visual artists, are among Chin’s last holdover cases from his trial court days, after Chin was promoted to the second Circuit Court of Appeals.
