The U.S. District Court Southern District of New York released news on November 30th that extensions had been granted to Full Tilt Poker, PokerStars, and Absolute Poker to respond to the amended complaint filed on September 21st, 2011.

Each company will "have until Jan. 2, 2012, to answer or otherwise respond to the Amended Complaint," according to three separate Stipulation and Orders that were filed on November 29th, 2011. Originally a response was expected from the companies by November 30th, but due to recent claims by Howard Lederer and Rafe Furst (entities associated with the online poker sites) more time was granted.

The Stipulation and Order for Full Tilt Poker states:

"Full Tilt is in settlement discussions with the United States and has requested additional time to answer or otherwise respond to the Amended Complaint; NOW, THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED AND AGREED by and between the United State of America, by its attorney Preet Bharara, United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Jason H. Cowley, Assistant United States Attorney, of counsel, and Full Tilt, by they attorney, Barry Boss, Esq., of Cozen O'Connor."
