AutoZone Trial Set for August 10, 2010 [Hardy Har] - Updated

"What the judge has done is administrative. Early on, the judge always sets up a schedule. But you saw in the IBM case, that doesn't at all mean that anyone will stick to the schedule. That trial was originally scheduled for April of 2005, but it hasn't happened yet. In this case, I seriously doubt SCO v. AutoZone will ever go to trial. The judge has also ordered that the case is now referred to a magistrate judge to set up a settlement conference prior to May 31, 2010, which is also in the realm of fantasy. I mean, they might meet, but I don't expect SCO management to ever settle anything. Of course, if SCO gets a trustee in bankruptcy court, that would alter the landscape significantly. Trustees are not known for litigation-at-all-costs fever."
