SCO Claims IBM Destroyed Crucial Evidence
The SCO Group versus IBM lawsuit is growing ever more desperate--and ever more weird. The latest twist: Buried in a new filing from SCO is a claim that International Business Machines destroyed evidence by ordering its programmers to delete copies of software code that could have helped SCO prove its case.
SCO alleges this happened in 2003, yet the company has never talked about it in public before.
However, an attorney for SCO says the code deletion is one reason why the Lindon, Utah, software maker has been unable to comply with a demand that it produce examples of allegedly stolen code.
