"I view the bankruptcy hearings at this point as comic relief, since nothing goes the way any of us here think they should. Bankruptcy court seems like cartoon court to me. So, when I heard that the December 2009 hearing transcript [PDF] was available, I said, Oh, goody!

"It doesn't disappoint. This was the hearing primarily about SUSE's motion to lift the stay so it could finish the arbitration in Switzerland. And we have some recent bankruptcy filings, mainly the order letting SCO sell the mobility assets to former CEO of SCO Darl McBride. I found it beyond comical to read Bonnie Fatell tell the court the history of SCO as she understands it and about its case against Novell and about the SUSE arbitration, and how important it is that SCO finally get its day in court in Utah without distractions. It's funny now, now that SCO lost after they got that day in court, to see her wax lyrical about SCO's meritorious and strong claims.

"Nowadays, Chapter 11 Trustee Edward Cahn claims he told the court before the trial that they thought SCO had a little better than a 50% certainty of prevailing. Read the transcript for yourself and compare."
