The hearing on SCO's Motion for Leave to Take Certain Prospective Depositions [PDF; text] is now scheduled for February 24 at 9:30 AM in Room 220. Magistrate Judge Brooke Wells will hear arguments. If any of you can attend, please do, calling the day before or even that morning to make sure there are no changes of scheduling.
This should be rather an exciting hearing, given that Intel has entered the fray with a bang. Here's the Pacer entry:

Notice of Hearing on Motion
Docket Text: NOTICE OF HEARING ON MOTION re:  MOTION for Leave to Take Certain Prospective Depositions,  MOTION to Compel Discovery: Motion Hearing set for 2/24/2006 at 09:30 AM in Room 220 before Magistrate Judge Brooke C. Wells. (jwd, )
Also, if you are planning to attend, please email me so I know we'll have coverage. Thanks. To prepare, so you understand what is happening, you'd probably want to review the motion and Intel's response and the following:
article on Intel's Motion
article on what SCO asked from Oracle
Oracle Motion to Quash in California
Declaration of John Wadsworth
The Oracle motion won't be argued directly in Utah on the 24th (unless it is transferred there in the meantime), but reading it will help you understand the issues, and they are involved, being one of the entities SCO wants to depose. There will be more filings prior to the hearing, from IBM for one, so stay tuned. Remember there is no taping allowed, no cell phones, PDAs etc., so bring paper so you can take notes. Even if you don't understand everything, write down what they say, and others will know what it means. It should really be fun.
Update: The time has change, according to this Pacer entry:
"AMENDED NOTICE OF HEARING ON MOTION re: 607 MOTION for Leave to Take
