Tomorrow's Hearing Postponed
Thursday, January 22 2004 @ 11:14 PM EST

There has been a lot of talk about whether the SCO-IBM hearing scheduled for tomorrow was or was not postponed. It's definitely postponed. SCO has the notice up on their site. It's not up yet on Pacer, but we'll take their word for it. Here is what it tells us:

PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that a proceeding in this case has been set for hearing before Honorable Brooke Wells at:

Room 436
350 South Main Street
Salt Lake City, Utah

On Friday, 2/6/04 at 10:00 a.m.

TYPE OF PROCEEDING: All pending motions PLEASE NOTE: Courtesy copies of any documentation filed with the court should be hand delivered to Judge Wells' chambers. Also, please note that the hearing sheduled for 1/23/04 at 10:00 is VACATED.

I have no inside knowledge on why the postponement was requested. Sometimes you ask for a postponement just because the attorney you want to handle a matter is stuck in another case somewhere and can't be in two places at once, something you didn't anticipate when you set up the original hearing date. That isn't uncommon, although you try to avoid such things. Sometimes, it's because you just discovered some new evidence that will strengthen your case and you want to use it, but you finished all your documents before you had it and need time to weave it in. Sometimes you just couldn't finish in time for all the various and sundry reasons humans are prone to. It isn't usually some Perry Mason dramatic excitement, though, just the mundane scheduling issues that come up when a large group of humans have to be in the same spot at the same time. However, if I were SCO, I would probably be wondering what, if anything, it means. Happily, I am not SCO, so I am not worrying about a thing.
