DaimlerChrysler Denies SCOs Allegations
DaimlerChrysler denies all of SCO's allegations regarding Unix and asks the court to dismiss SCO's case, saying the company lacks standing to sue.Along with AutoZone Inc., DaimlerChrysler AG is now fighting back against The SCO Group Inc.s legal assaults. The automobile giant on April 15 filed a motion to dismiss SCOs case, here in PDF form, at the Circuit Court for Oakland County in Michigan. But unlike AutoZonewhich is striving to delay any action in its case until resolution has been reached in SCOs cases with IBM, Novell Inc. and Red Hat Inc.DaimlerChrysler aggressively asked the court in its motion for summary disposition to "dismiss plaintiffs complaint with prejudice, award DC its costs and attorneys fees as may be permitted by law, and grant such other relief as may be appropriate."
In its motion, DaimlerChrysler categorically denies almost all of SCOs claims against it, starting with SCOs claim that it owns the intellectual property rights to Unix. DaimlerChrysler argues repeatedly that SCOs characterizations of DaimlerChryslers Unix license are incorrect, and the company denies all of SCOs allegations based on the license.
