  • The TikTok deal saga has some new clarity, via a new timeline.
  • Judge Carl Nichols has set a schedule to sort out the conflicting litigation and drama around the app, a proposed U.S. ban by the Trump administration, and the proposed sale on the table (of some kind) of TikTok's U.S. operations to an investment group including Oracle (ORCL +0.3%) and Walmart (WMT +1.2%).
  • TikTok (BDNCE) has already won an injunction blocking a ban on new downloads of its app, but it faces a Nov. 12 deadline that would curb usage of the app in other ways, Bloomberg reports.
  • TikTok will now file a request (by Oct. 14) for a temporary block of the Nov. 12 prohibitions.
  • By Oct. 23, the government will respond to TikTok's injunction request. And by Oct. 30, Tiktok will reply to the government response.
  • That sets up oral arguments in the case for sometime during the week of Nov. 2 - already shaping up to be busy for other reasons.
