SCO v. Novell Goes To the Jury 67 67

Posted by timothy
from the perhaps-it's-the-oj-jury dept.
Excelcia writes "Closing arguments in the six and a bit year old slander of title case between SCO and Novell occurred today and the case is finally in the hands of the jury. It's been an interesting case, with SCO alternately claiming that the copyrights to UNIX did get transferred to them, and that the copyrights should have been transferred to them. 'Judge Ted Stewart said, after the jury left to begin to deliberate, that in all his years on the bench, he's never seen such fine lawyering as in this case.' We're not going to find out the results until at least Tuesday, however, as one juror is taking a long weekend. Great lawyering notwithstanding, we can all hope next week that the Energizer bunny of all spurious lawsuits will finally go away."

When did you last take a train ride? I just went from Redding, CA (far Northern CA) to Seattle, WA for my daughter's wedding (May 13, 2009) - round trip $139 (USD) - one way on the cheapest flight I could find - $150... Comfie chair (cue the Spanish Inquisition) and terrific view.

I don't know — "The Lord of The Rings" series — IMHO — turned out alright, "Do Androids dream of electric sheep?" was passable, but "I, Robot" slacked badly as have many book to movie attempts. What say you?"

If you can't learn to do it well, learn to enjoy doing it badly.
