SCO Wins Prestigious Legal Awards

Filed under
Humor

In what could be the Second Sign of the Apocalypse, The SCO Group today won several prestigious awards at the annual meeting of the National Association of Litiguous Bastards, including awards for "Best Lawsuit", "Best Discovery Stall Tactics", and "Best Supporting Attorney".

While these so-called "Torty" Awards do not come with any cash bonuses, The SCO Group hopes to leverage their success into a line of legal textbooks and how-to videos for aspiring lawyers.

"The SCO Group and the attorneys at Boies, Schiller & Flexner have employed some of the most creative litigation maneuvers in the history of tort law," said Flaye Kee, NALB president. "They truly deserve these awards. I've been following their case against IBM and it's been a joy to watch... their sheer brilliance almost brings a tear to your eyes. I mean, who else could keep a lawsuit running for so long without disclosing even the slightest crumb of hard evidence?"
