Chapter 11 Trustee appointed in SCO Bankruptcy
Every now and then I'm reminded that the SCO bankruptcy remains pending. You might recall SCO as the company that sued Novell and a number of other companies claiming that it owned copyrights to code found in the LINUX open source operating system. Almost two years ago, SCO filed a Chapter 11 petition
in order to protect the company while the litigation continued. SCO is represented by Laura Davis Jones of Puchulski Stang Ziehl & Jones, LLP.
In May, the U.S. Trustee's Office in Delaware filed a motion to convert
the long-standing Chapter 11 case to Chapter 7. Declining to institute such a drastic remedy, Judge Gross instead ordered
a Chapter 11 bankruptcy trustee appointed. More detailed information about the decision can be found here on Groklaw
. Although the order has not been appealled, a trustee has not yet been appointed.
Meanwhile, Steven Vaughan-Nichols' blog in Computerworld reports
that SCO actually won a minor victory of sorts in its litigation with Novell, as the Court of Appeals reverses a prior summary judgment decision against SCO.
