"Now that SCO has filed its appeal brief in SCO v. Novell, let's get back to the trial itself. We've already done the first four days' transcripts, and here is the transcript of day five, as text, of the SCO v. Novell trial. The trial began on Monday, March 8, 2010 and ran for 15 days, Monday through Friday, for three weeks, with the Hon. Ted Stewart presiding. This transcript is for Friday, March 12, and the witnesses that day were Ty Mattingly and Bill Broderick. Here is Groklaw's eyewitness report from the trial for that day. And now I'll share with you what I see as the highlights of the day.

"I know what you're saying, "Aw, on day four, they promised they would play Maureen O'Gara's deposition today" and you'd be right. They did. But you'll have to be patient, because these two witnesses used up the entire day. Mattingly showed up with documents that he had shared with SCO but not Novell, so that took some time to deal with. But she appears in spirit, as there are discussions about what parts of her deposition video can be played, both before the day began and at the very end of the day. SCO expresses worries and tries to keep the jury from hearing the dreaded G word.

"Yup. Groklaw is fear inspiring, to hear SCO talk. SCO didn't want the jury to hear about Groklaw for fear they'd come here and read something."
