Ive been unable to confirm with SCO that it has indeed attempted to have Jones file a deposition for one of its Linux-related lawsuits.
Since this incident was reported to have happened, Ms. Jones announced on Groklaw that she has "been sick more than once recently. I dont seem to be getting back on my feet the way Id normally expect, and so after some thought Ive decided to take a little break from doing Groklaw, just until I get my strength back."
Since then, Groklaw has been kept updated by the sites Webmaster, Peter Roozemaal, aka MathFox. Jones, herself, has been quiet.
As a result of all this, there are once more rumors flying about that "Pamela Jones" is not a real person. Or, as SCO CEO Darl McBride once put it, Jones is a front for anti-SCO parties, such as IBM, and shes not who she says she is—a paralegal whos also a journalist.
Let me address this directly. Yes, Pamela Jones is a real person. Ive met her several times, and Ive often "talked" with her on e-mail and IM. I consider her a friend.
