Judge Rejects SCO’s Motion For a New Trial

June 10th, 2010 06:29 admin Leave a comment Go to comments

An anonymous reader writes “A judge has rejected SCO’s motion for a new trial in the company’s dispute over UNIX intellectual property ownership. The ruling validates a verdict that was issued in April by a jury which determined that Novell, and not SCO, is the rightful owner of the UNIX SVRX copyrights. This means that SCO cannot continue to pursue its litigation against IBM and other Linux users. ‘There was substantial evidence that Novell made an intentional decision to retain ownership of the copyrights,’ the judge wrote in his decision. ‘The Court finds that the verdict is not clearly, decidedly, or overwhelmingly against the weight of the evidence. Therefore, SCO is not entitled to a new trial.’”
