The Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals has announced its
schedule [PDF] of cases and judges assigned for the January 2011 term of the court. Page 11 shows that the SCO v. Novell appeal oral argument is scheduled for Thursday, January 20th in Courtroom IV before Justices O'Brien, Seymour and Holmes.
Synchronize your watches, and if you need to book a flight, now you know the day to arrange for. SCO is listed last for that day, but call the court if you plan to attend to verify closer to the date.
I'm assuming that O'Brien, Seymour & Holmes would be:
Judge Terrence L. O'Brien
So none of the three judges who heard the first appeal, Justices Lucero, Baldock and McConnell, will hear this one.
Senior Judge Stephanie K. Seymour
Judge Jerome A. Holmes
If you go, please be sure to take copious notes. If there are several of you in attendance, assign one person to watch interactions, facial expressions, general tone and theme, while others take the more detailed notes. Be sure you know the local rules about what can and can't go into the courtroom and obey the rules, please. This oral argument is very important to cover, because the 10th Circuit doesn't normally release transcripts.
