This week bankruptcy judge Kevin Gross made a number of important decisions regarding the ongoing SCO Group litigation. First, a Chapter 11 Trustee has been commissioned to take over the business affairs of the company. The judge also barred the SCO Group from selling its Unix system division, which was due to be taken over by a company called UnXis.
Novell is pleased with the Court’s ruling and the determination to have a Chapter 11 Trustee administer the SCO estate. Novell believes that the administration of the SCO estate by an independent Trustee will be in the best interests of all creditors and the estate. We also believe this is continuing good news for the open source community.
