Tomorrow's SCO Bankruptcy Hearing Cancelled
Thursday, May 28 2009 @ 06:17 PM EDT

Tomorrow's bankruptcy hearing has been cancelled. This is the one that was about signing off on some fees billed to SCO, the one I told you probably was worth skipping. I gather the court agreed. Why pay lawyers to show up for a hearing on something that isn't opposed by anyone? It's an unnecessary expense, if the judge is just going to sign, which is what he was certainly going to do. This is a sensible move. The hearing that matters is the next one, on June 15 on whether to send SCO to Chapter 7 or not.

The filings:
05/28/2009 - 773 - Certification of Counsel Regarding Omnibus Order Approving Certain Quarterly Fee Applications (related document(s) 708, 720, 733) Filed by The SCO Group, Inc.. (Attachments: # 1 Exhibit A) (O'Neill, James) (Entered: 05/28/2009)

05/28/2009 - 774 - HEARING CANCELLED. Amended Notice of Agenda of Matters Scheduled for Hearing. (related document(s) 771) Filed by The SCO Group, Inc.. Hearing scheduled for 5/29/2009 at 03:00 PM at US Bankruptcy Court, 824 Market St., 6th Fl., Courtroom #3, Wilmington, Delaware. (Attachments: # 1 Certificate of Service and Service List) (O'Neill, James) (Entered: 05/28/2009)

Tomorrow's SCO Bankruptcy Hearing Cancelled
Authored by: Henning Makholm on Thursday, May 28 2009 @ 07:20 PM EDT
I'm not saying that this hearing ought to have been held, but I'm confused by
the procedure for canceling it. It appears to be SCO's lawyers that have
canceled the hearing, rather than the court. Why can they do that -- oughtn't it
be the court who decides what it needs to hold a hearing on?

Shouldn't there at least be some sort of certification that "we have spoken
to the other creditors, and they all agree that this hearing is
unnecessary"? They do say that they've circulated their proposed order to
the ones who're going to get paid, but surely those are the ones LEAST likely to
object?

Would SCO's lawyers also be able to unilaterally cancel the June 15 hearing and
remove the Chapter-7 motions from the court's agenda?

We are not that lucky. What are the odds that they try to appeal this one as
well.

If Chapter 7, what is next?
Authored by: IMANAL_TOO on Friday, May 29 2009 @ 01:17 AM EDT
Maybe missed it. If SCO goes into Chapter 7, what is next?

Are they out forever? Or are there still ways to postpone trials and/or pursuit
lawsuits?
