Looks Like Novell Will Be There Tomorrow - The Fleet Has Arrived
Monday, September 17 2007 @ 05:42 PM EDT

Novell has filed five pro hac vice motions. Yes, friends, they have assigned five Morrison & Foerster attorneys to appear in the SCO bankruptcy, two partners and three associates. They appear to be bankruptcy specialists. I'll put links to their bios in the PACER notes. The fleet is in.

Here's the latest on PACER:

They are all from the New York office except for Mr. Lewis, who is a partner from San Francisco. I might be prejudiced, but if there is anything more frightening than a Morrison & Foerster attorney, it's got to be a *New York* Morrison & Foerster attorney.

Mr. Lewis, despite not being from New York, sounds quite impressive. Here's just a taste from his bio:

Mr. Lewis is a member of the American Bar Association's Business Bankruptcy Committee and Chapter 11 Subcommittee. He was also a member of the California State Bar Association's Debtor/Creditor Relations and Bankruptcy Committee for a regular three-year term. He has appeared on panels for programs on bankruptcy sponsored by national continuing legal education, trade and professional organizations. From 1992 to 2003, he was a member of the Editorial Board of the American Bankruptcy Institute. Mr. Lewis taught the Bankruptcy course by invitation at the University of California at Berkeley's Boalt Hall School of Law in the Spring of 2004.

And say, hey. Lookie here. This is an interesting area of expertise:

Ms. Dyas earned her J.D. from the University of Texas Law School in 2002, and her Ph.D. in Linguistics from the University of Texas at Austin in 2002. Her doctoral research analyzed the linguistic features of deception under oath in English and certain romance languages.

Well. Shut my mouth. But I think we have a match.
