Groklaw: "The judge said what SCO told the jury was inappropriate, and he merely warned SCO not to go "close to the line again." I'm sure SCO will mend its ways immediately."

Groklaw: "SCO has filed its "renewed" motion for judgment "as a matter of law", with its supporting memorandum. They ask the judge to rule over the heads of the jury and decide that the jury "simply got it wrong" when it ruled that SCO didn't get the copyrights in 1995 from Novell. In the alternative, they'd like a new trial."
Groklaw: "Before I do my full report, a couple of highlights:
Groklaw was discussed (with jury out of the room) twice, with respect to the Maureen O'Gara deposition. The first was to strike a mention of Groklaw; the second, a mention of pj."
Groklaw: "Chris Brown was in the courtroom for us today. It was all Darl McBride today, and there also was some sparring over SCO expert, Christine Botosan, he reports. It looks like the jury will be hearing about Judge Dale Kimball's ruling after all, because Novell intends to ask her about what happened to the stock when he issued his rulings."
Groklaw: "We know that the jury in SCO v. Novell decided that SCO didn't get the copyrights in 1995 under the APA or by Amendment 2 or any fusion thereof. That killed SCO's slander of title claim as well. But that isn't the end."
Groklaw: "He said something interesting, that he remembers a lot about the APA, because it was a very significant deal, one that he knew at the time was important, because it would affect the future of Unix. It explains why after all these years he still has the drafts, don't you think? He knew this was historic and a significant moment in his career."
Groklaw: "Here's what the Salt Lake Tribune reports happened today at the SCO v. Novell trial, all of which it records as if it were all so. Let's see if it is, by comparing what is reported about the testimony with what we already know. Part of what Groklaw does is insist on checking facts. So, let's do that."
