Firm representing SCO could receive $49.4 million

The law firm of litigator David Boies could get $49.4 million or more for representing Utah-based SCO Group Inc. in its lawsuit over Linux
software -- even without winning in court.

Documents SCO recently filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission say the Lindon software firm "is in the process of finalizing" a deal
with its counsel. Under the agreement, SCO would pay the lawyers 20 percent of the proceeds of "a sale of SCO during the pendancy of litigation." SCO
is suing International Business Machines Corp.
