And the winner is IBM.... And the lawyers milking the case for 13 long years. A new filing (PDF) scooped up by the good folks at Groklaw sees both SCO and IBM agree to sign off on two recent decisions in which SCO's arguments advancing its claims to own parts of Unix were slapped down by the US District Court.
As The Register reads the PDF we've linked to above, and our informal legal counsel concurs, the new document describes IBM and SCO both signing off on the recent court orders. Those orders left SCO without a legal argument to stand on. The new filing also points out that SCO remains bankrupt and has âhas de minimis financial resources beyond the value of the claims on which the Court has granted summary judgment for IBM.â
