"SCO caved on its voluntarily dismissed claims, then, and Novell did not. So, another loss for SCO. No matter what happens on appeal, then, SCO can't resurrect those claims. It can appeal the rest of the matters it lost in August 2007 and July of 2008.

"Novell, however, in an identical circumstance, can pull its voluntarily dismissed claims out of its back pocket and go after SCO. And I'm sure it would. In the wording of the judgment, Novell has "the right to pursue these claims only in this action, should there be a subsequent adjudication or trial in this action." So if there were an appeal and SCO got the case sent back to Utah for a jury trial, for example, SCO's favorite daydream, then Novell could bring back to the courtroom all its voluntarily dismissed claims."
