Submission + - From litigation hell (SCO LOOSES) (groklaw.net)

WillRobinson writes: Being reported in the Salt Lake Tribune and of course where we all been watching at Groklaw SCO's stock had dropped to a penny, guess they will sue the justice system for their drop in stock price. A federal jury Tuesday found that Novell Inc., and not The SCO Group, owns the copyrights to the Unix computer operating systems used by many businesses. The decision ends a long-running legal battle between the two companies and between Lindon-based SCO and IBM. It also likely means the end of SCO, which already is teetering in bankruptcy court. Lawyers for SCO had contended Novell owed it millions of dollars for lost sales revenue and that it was due punitive damages on top of that. SCO claimed it lost as much as $215 million as a result of Novell's actions, which stretch back to 2003. After a three-week trial and closing arguments from each side before presiding Judge Ted Stewart, the jury filed out of the courtroom to begin deliberations Friday. The jury went home 4½ hours later and reconvened this morning.
