If you’re eager (and who isn’t?) to see how the U.S. Postal Service responds to Northrop Grumman’s $180 million lawsuit over a monster automation project gone awry, well, sit tight. The original deadline was today, but Federal Claims Court Judge George Miller has given Postal Service lawyers an extension until Sept. 7.
“Additional time is needed to conduct further investigation that is required to prepare full and accurate responses to allegations” in Northrop’s suit, Miller ruled last week. Northrop did not object to the delay.
