, in the Wall Street Journal

Meanwhile, the "clawback" (taking money back from investors who got out just before the fund imploded) that Massachusetts' Secretary of State is fighting against is still up in the air. Sources told the WSJ that the judge "would order further briefs" on the matter within 10 days.
The Primary money market fund broke the buck a year ago and took down Reserve with it, thanks to some Lehman debt holdings.
