Novell Files Motion to Stay, Answer with Counterclaims etc.
Novell has filed a Motion to Stay Claims Raising Issues Subject to Arbitration (here's the Memorandum in Support [PDF]), telling the court that SCO's copyright infringement claims and in fact four of its five claims have to be brought to arbitration, as per the UnitedLinux agreement, under the Federal Arbitration Act, which requires a stay of any claim raising issues subject to arbitration. Therefore, it asks the court to stay all proceedings on SCO's claims until that matter can be cared for. Novell has already filed a request for arbitration.
