|SCO Gets to Dispose or Abandon or Destroy its Property, including Business Records ~pj
Thursday, February 21 2013 @ 03:53 PM EST
I'm sure you will not be surprised to learn that SCO Group, now calling itself TSG, has been granted its wish by its most reliable fairy godmother, the Delaware bankruptcy court, and will be allowed to destroy or dispose of its remaining business records and computers. Nobody cared enough to intervene to block, not that the outcome would have been any different, I don't think, if they had:
So, about that "dispose" part... I wonder who gets all the materials?

The order just says, in effect, do whatever you said in your motion. And if you recall, the motion said this:
The Trustee is exploring various means of disposing of the Obsolete Property, including, without limitation, hiring a former employee of the Debtors on an hourly basis to determine whether certain of the Obsolete Property contains
confidential information that may require special disposal. Accordingly, the Trustee respectfully requests authority to dispose of any Obsolete Property as the Trustee deems reasonable and appropriate. Special disposal, according to their wish and inclination. And the funny part of this footnote to history is that nobody even cared enough to try to prevent it.
Do you realize Groklaw has been reporting on this crazy SCO saga for ten years as of
March May? We're still here. SCO? Not so much.
