"This was the hearing mainly about two things: the AutoZone settlement agreement, the terms of which Cahn and AutoZone wanted to keep confidential, but which Joseph McMahon, the trial attorney from the US Trustee's Office had objected to having sealed; and second, the Wayne Gray motion [PDF], opposed by Cahn, to lift the stay so Gray could more or less compel SCO to investigate trademark claims on trademarks Gray claims SCO owns but SCO said a couple of years ago it doesn't own. He also wants SCO to participate in Gray's Florida litigation in some way I could never quite figure out.

"The judge will issue an order, but MikeD reports that Judge Gross said clearly that he doesn't think Gray has standing. He'll take time to consider the arguments, but it sounds like curtains for Mr. Gray's hopes of SCO cooperation. As Ms. Fatell pointed out at the hearing, Gray accused SCO of fraud under the RICO Act, among other things, and now he is asking SCO to help him out in his appeal. What are the odds of that happening? As for the allegations of fraud, Gray wanted an investigation, but the judge said that will not happen."
