Hatch Declaration Supporting SCO's Opposition to Novell's Motion for SJ
Wednesday, February 06 2008 @ 03:45 PM EST

Now that they are preparing for the trial in Utah, we can get a hint of what SCO's position will be. This document in particular gives us some broad hints, Brent Hatch's Declaration in Support of SCO's Memorandum in Opposition to Novell's Motion for Summary Judgment on its 4th Claim for Relief [PDF].

I thought it was important to present it as text, because it will help us analyze better if we find all the documents we can. If you can lend a hand with that, it would be great, because I have a touch of the flu. If you find a url, leave it as a comment, and when I feel better, I'll put them into the article. Here's Novell's Motion for Summary Judgment on its 4th Claim for Relief for context. SCO filed its Opposition under seal, as you'll recall.
