"In any case, we need to begin thinking about covering that many
days of a trial. The cost for transcripts for something like this
is way beyond our capabilities. So I'm asking the parties if they
would please consider providing a copy of their transcripts when
they order them? This is an historic case, one that will go down in
history, I'm sure, no matter how it ends. So please would you
consider the children, so to speak, the coming generations who will
want to study and learn about this litigation?
"And if anyone knows anyone who can take notes and will
volunteer to attend a day or two or all of it, this is the moment
for us to start to get prepared.
"Interestingly, originally Judge Dale Kimball's schedule for the
trial set 21 days. If you'd like to compare, here is that schedule.
No cut off scheduled for the days either, but in fact each day
ended at around 2 PM. Of course, the trial got whittled down after
so many claims were decided on summary judgment and because a lot
got sent to arbitration in Switzerland. Here's what the parties
thought was left to try after the summary judgment motions were
decided. And then it was decided there'd be no jury. And then SCO
filed for bankruptcy on the eve of trial, and after the stay was
lifted, a 4-day bench trial was scheduled and held beginning on
April 29, 2008 on some money matters, with mixed results, then came
SCO's appeal, and here we are."
