Court dismisses bulk of SCO's DaimlerChrysler lawsuit

The SCO Group has been dealt a setback in its quest to hold customers accountable for its copyright claims. On Wednesday, a Michigan judge granted a motion dismissing all but one of the software vendor's counts in its lawsuit with auto giant DaimlerChrysler, according to DaimlerChrysler spokeswoman Mary Gauthier.

SCO, based in Lindon, Utah, filed the lawsuit in March of this year with the Circuit Court for the County of Oakland, Michigan, claiming that DaimlerChrysler had refused to provide a "certification of compliance" showing that the company continued to abide by a Unix licensing agreement from November 1990.
