Hearing set for June 15 on US Trustee's Motion to Convert SCO to Ch. 7 (or Dismiss) - Updated 2Xs
Thursday, May 21 2009 @ 01:29 PM EDT

The hearing on the U.S. Trustee's motion to convert SCO's bankruptcy from Chapter 11 to Chapter 7, or to dismiss, has been set for June 15, 2009 at 02:00 PM at US Bankruptcy Court, 824 Market St., 6th Fl., Courtroom #3, Wilmington, Delaware. I reeeeeally hope some of you can attend, if at all possible. SCO has until June 5 to object.

There will also be a hearing to approve some quarterly fee applications on May 29, which I expect will just be rubber stamped. That's not the one that matters.

Here's the notice [PDF]. Exhibit A [PDF] shows the three firms asking for money, Berger, Tanner and Pachulski, the usual suspects. Kidding. The hearing is scheduled to begin at 03:30 PM at US Bankruptcy Court, 824 Market St., 6th Fl., Courtroom #3, Wilmington, Delaware. I can't imagine, unless something else is added to the list that it's worth showing up for this one. Has there ever been a bill this court didn't approve? And these are not opposed by anyone, either, so no fireworks expected.

There are some other filings too, with a few mistakes being corrected in the record. I expect further entries, reflecting that both IBM and Novell have also filed motions to convert or dismiss. So, likely their motions will be added to the list of matters to be heard that day. Here's the docket:

05/21/2009 - 763 - Certificate of No Objection (No Order Required) Regarding Nineteenth Monthly Application for Compensation for Services and Reimbursement of Expenses, as Co-Counsel to the Debtors in Possession, for the Period from March 1, 2009 through March 31, 2009 (related document(s) 748 ) Filed by The SCO Group, Inc.. (Attachments: # 1 Certificate of Service and Service List) (O'Neill, James) (Entered: 05/21/2009)

05/21/2009 - 764 - [ENTERED IN ERROR] See Docket #765. Notice of Hearing on United States Trustee's Motion to Convert Chapter 11 Case to a Case Under Chapter 7. Hearing scheduled for 6/15/2009 at 02:00 PM at US Bankruptcy Court, 824 Market St., 6th Fl., Courtroom #3, Wilmington, Delaware. The case judge is Kevin Gross. Objections due by 6/5/2009. (TAS) Modified on 5/21/2009 (TAS). (Entered: 05/21/2009)

05/21/2009 - 765 - Corrective Entry (related document(s) 764 ) [ENTERED IN ERROR] Notice of Hearing on United States Trustee's Motion to Convert Chapter 11 Case to a Case Under Chapter 7. (TAS) (Entered: 05/21/2009)

05/21/2009 - 766 - Notice of Hearing on Motion to Dismiss or Alternatively Convert Hearing scheduled for 6/15/2009 at 02:00 PM at US Bankruptcy Court, 824 Market St., 6th Fl., Courtroom #3, Wilmington, Delaware. The case judge is Kevin Gross. Objections due by 6/5/2009. (TAS) (Entered: 05/21/2009)

Update: As expected, there is now an update to the docket to reflect the IBM and Novell motions:
05/21/2009 - 767 - Notice of Hearing (Re-Notice of Hearing) on (A) Motion of the United States Trustee to Convert Cases to Cases Under Chapter 7; (B) Motion of International Business Machines Corporation for an Order Converting the Debtors' Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Cases to Cases Under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code; and (C) Novell's Motion for Conversion (related document(s) 750 , 751 , 753 ) Filed by The SCO Group, Inc.. Hearing scheduled for 6/15/2009 at 02:00 PM at US Bankruptcy Court, 824 Market St., 6th Fl., Courtroom #3, Wilmington, Delaware. Objections due by 6/5/2009. (Attachments: # 1 Affidavit of Service and Service List) (Makowski, Kathleen) (Entered: 05/21/2009)
Update 2: Now there is an updated notice on the May 29 hearing also, changing the time from 2 PM to 3 PM:

05/22/2009 - 768 - Amended Notice of Hearing to Consider Approval and Allowance of Quarterly Fee Applications (related document(s) 708 , 720 , 733 , 761 ) Filed by The SCO Group, Inc.. Hearing scheduled for 5/29/2009 at 03:00 PM at US Bankruptcy Court, 824 Market St., 6th Fl., Courtroom #3, Wilmington, Delaware. (Attachments: # 1 Exhibit A # 2 Certificate of Service and Service Lists) (O'Neill, James) (Entered: 05/22/2009)
