Subject: Daimler case closed (for now)

The "final judgment" in the Daimler case is now at At there's a
summary of recent events and of the first steps of the
appeal process.

I realize people are busy commemorating the birth of The
Christ and all that, but I'm still a little surprised that
this generated *zero* discussion here.

If nothing else, I thought that my take on the matter being
distinctly less anti-SCO than groklaw's would at least
generate a fresh shill accusation.

I'll be quite amused if SCO hurries to file its Claim of
Appeal before the end of the year (a week and a half before
it is due) just to avoid being put on the new fast-track
process that will be used for appeals filed in 2005.

There's been a little discussion over at Here's my
last post there:

Just to be clear: what I expect is that SCO will appeal the
August 9 order, and that SCO will file its initial claim of
appeal by January 11. I do not expect SCO to prevail on

I directed people to that SCOfacts page for more information
because it does indeed contain more information about the
Michigan appeals process, including specific citations of
the applicable court rules and time periods. I do not
believe such information is well known, nor has it been
covered by Groklaw.

Also, contrary to widespread impression (via Groklaw), SCO
does not need to pay Daimler anything in order to continue
to pursue this case by appealing the August ruling. The
provisions for awarding fees to Daimler apply only if SCO
refiles the timeliness claim. SCO has said that it
considers that to be the least important part of the case,
and it will not be pursued unless SCO first prevails on the
other issues in the appellate court.
