Here you go, the minutes from today's SCO bankruptcy hearing:
So what happened? Al Petrofsky's motion to compel was denied, as I thought it would be, and in fact as I thought it should be. The Chapter 11 Trustee's motion to seal the arbitration exhibit was granted, as we figured it would be. And the judge took the SUSE motion to lift the stay under advisement. We'll know in about a week or so.
12/30/2009 - 1016 - Minutes of Hearing held on: 12/30/2009 Subject: OMNIBUS HEARING (moved from 12/22/09). (vCal Hearing ID (102915)). (related document(s) 1014 ) (SS) Additional attachment(s) added on 12/30/2009 (SS). (Entered: 12/30/2009)
Our reporter attending the hearing will tell us more details later in the day, after he gets a chance to type up his notes, but from the Minutes we see the following:
HEARING HELD. AGENDA ITEMS:
#5 is Petrofsky's Motion to Compel, which was denied.
#6 is SUSE's Motion to Lift Stay.
#7 is Chapter 11 Trustee Edward Cahn's motion to file Ryan Tibbitts' exhibit under seal. I couldn't and can't predict the SUSE decision, so we'll have to wait and see, although I think it should be approved and will be appealed if not granted, but the others were not at all hard to guess accurately.
#1 - #4 - CNO Filed and Order Signed
#5 - Denied, Order to be submitted to Court
#6 - Judge will issue ruling -with in the next week
#7 - Approved - ORDER SIGNED

While we wait for more information, please continue to help us complete the blurbs on the Comes Exhibits. We've really made good progress, but there is a lot more to do. Remember that what matters is to make the collection searchable by keyword. So note headers on emails, any juicy quotes, any companies listed, general topic. Here's the list that we are working to complete.
