A judge granted a two-week extension to Hungarian Holocaust survivors and the U.S. government in negotiations on final compensation for a trainload of looted Jewish property. The sides agreed on the broad outlines of a settlement in December in the “Gold Train” case and were to have announced a detailed settlement by Monday, but difficulties in tracking survivors led both sides to ask Patricia Seitz, a federal judge in Miami, for an extension. The sides now expect a settlement by March 4.
