"We finally get to read SCO's experts' reports, three of them,
the ones from Dr. Christine A. Botosan, Dr. Gary Pisano, and G.
Gervaise Davis III, because Novell has attached them as Exhibit A
to each memorandum in support of their three motions for Daubert
hearings, seeking to disqualify each expert's testimony. I say
finally because the reports were written in 2007. Haven't I always
told you that sooner or later, it all comes to light? It's what I
love about litigation.
"I don't know if I should describe the reports as absurdly
fascinating or fascinatingly absurd. Their version of UNIX history
and the history of SCO's litigation is an alternate universe far
from any I know or think of as reality. If I may paraphrase the
first Magistrate Judge in the SCO v. IBM litigation so many years
ago, is this all SCO's got?
"If you have forgotten what a Daubert hearing is, here you go.
The short explanation is that it's a hearing to decide if an expert
can testify, if he or she is qualified to do so and/or if the
methods used are appropriate or admissible."
