Submission + - SCO gets bankruptcy court approval to sell Unix (groklaw.net)

An anonymous reader writes: This seems just a little bit odd. SCO yesterday filed its Motion to Fix a Hearing Date and Shorten Time on its Emergency Motion for an Order (A) Approving Asset Purchase Agreement, (B) Establishing Sale and Bidding Procedures, and (C) Approving the Form and Manner of Notice of Sale. The Certificate of Service shows that it was served yesterday by "Overnight Delivery."

The judge already signed the Order today. So he signed it before anyone could carefully read it, let alone oppose it. Now, I freely confess that I'm not a specialist in this area, but perhaps any bankruptcy folks out there can tell us if that is normal. It certainly isn't in other civil courts. I guess Delaware got its friendly-to-corporations reputation for a reason.
