Lawyers for the U.S. Justice Department and for congressional Republicans told a federal judge on Tuesday that they are in talks to settle a lawsuit stemming from the botched gun probe known as Operation Fast and Furious.

The lawyers said they are uncertain whether the talks would be successful, but that they met on Monday and will meet again.

Republicans in the House of Representatives sued Attorney General Eric Holder, head of the Justice Department, in August to enforce a subpoena for documents about the probe. They voted in June to find Holder in contempt.
