A Utah judge has dismissed a large portion of the claims that SCO filed against IBM in its ongoing Linux case.
The judge was unimpressed with SCO's case. "It is almost like SCO sought to hide its case until the ninth inning in hopes of gaining an unfair advantage" despite being repeatedly told to put "all evidence on the table", she wrote.
She furthermore scorned SCO's defence, which argued it was not necessary to provide IBM with the disputed code.
"The court finds SCO's arguments unpersuasive. SCO's arguments are akin to SCO telling IBM sorry we are not going to tell you what you did wrong because you already know," she said.
A pity, that it took three (3!) years for the judge to realize that.
I'm waiting for all the suckers, who surrendered to SCO's extortion and intimidation, to sue them , demanding their money back. I don't think that Microsoft would cover their ass now.
