Here's SCO's status report letter [PDF] to the judge in the AutoZone case. As you will recall, Judge Robert Jones ordered [PDF] the parties to submit status reports every 90 days telling him what has happened in three other cases SCO is involved in, IBM, Novell, and Red Hat:
"The parties shall each submit a letter to the Court every 90 days as to the status of the following cases: The SCO Group, Inc. v. International Business Machines Corporation, No. 2:03CV294 (D. Utah); The SCO Group, Inc. v. Novell, Inc., No. 2:04CV00139 (D. Utah); and RedHat, Inc. v. The SCO Group, Inc., No. 1:03CV772 (D. Del.). The parties’ letters shall be sent 14 days following the dates on which SCO’s status letters are due to the court in the Red Hat case."
It's pretty much material we've already seen or know about, and in some cases we already know the outcome, like on the G2 motion, because the letter is dated April 18. It's almost poignant, reading SCO's hopeful words about motions already lost. AutoZone should also have filed a status report as well, and we'll bring it to you as soon as we have it.
The only thing I noted was on page 4 where they say the parties in SCO v. IBM have engaged in "additional document and deposition discovery during the period covered by this report". I'd love to know the details on that, but because there is a hold on all dispositive motions in the SCO v. IBM litigation, and that was how we found out about such things in the past when discovery materials were attached as exhibits or the subject of motion practice, we may not get that info until after discovery is done and motions start to fly again.
So, what do you think? Shall I file a motion to intervene and unseal? Joke. Joke. I can wait, and anyway, discovery materials are normally exempt. Sooner or later, it pretty much all comes out -- at the very latest, when all the cast of characters write their books about SCO v. the World. Well. Maybe not David Boies. This case probably isn't the one he wishes to be remembered for, I'm guessing. It's only my personal feeling, of course. And, after all, what do I know?
