During a court hearing on July 7, judge Barry Breslow appointed lawyer Jason Guinasso to be a special master in charge of working with both parties to research a possible resolution.


As Special Master, Guinasso was originally set to file his report on the findings by July 15 with a hearing to follow on July 16.

The court has ordered for the dates to be pushed back, saying the Special Master shall file the findings and report by July 17 with a hearing scheduled for July 20.
