Autozone Activity & SCO Forum Postponed for "New Investor"
Thursday, July 03 2008 @ 07:44 PM EDT

Friends, I don't know what it means but look at this docket entry in the SCO v. Autozone case:
69 - Filed & Entered: 07/03/2008
Minute Order
Docket Text: MINUTE ORDER IN CHAMBERS of the Honorable Judge Robert C. Jones, on 7/3/2008. IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the parties shall submit a status report to the Court no later than Monday, July 14, 2008. (no image attached) (Copies have been distributed pursuant to the NEF - TKH)

Here's what it could mean: the judge has been reading the funny papers; or SCO or Autozone raised an issue it wants addressed. If I had to bet money, I'd say the first, that the judge was going through his case log and wants to know what's going on. It's been almost a year since SCO filed for bankruptcy, after all. It filed a Notice of Bankruptcy, but there was no order, that I see, shutting down the case.

And SCO has announced that SCOForum is being postponed until October 1. According to Heise, the reason is that there is a "new investor" offering to help it out of Chapter 11. I have no idea whether this means the Stephen Norris deal is dead or what it means. I can guess it means SCO is telling us a lot of stories, one after another, and so far none of them pan out.

Here's the IBM order, so you can see what that kind of docket entry looks like:

1081 - Filed: 09/20/2007
Entered: 09/21/2007
Order to Administratively Close Case
Docket Text: ORDER Administratively Closing this Case. Case may be reopened upon motion of pla(s) or dft(s). Judge Brooke C. Wells no longer assigned to case. Signed by Judge Dale A. Kimball on 9/20/07. (jwt)

There's no such order in the AutoZone case, so maybe he noticed and wants to get that done. But I really don't know. We will have to watch that docket now too.
