Now we're having fun. On the heels of SCO asking the court to please, please bifurcate the IBM patent counterclaims, Judge Kimball has signed an unopposed order granting IBM leave to amend their counterclaims. That means all of them, not just the patent counterclaims. And IBM gets to amend after having read SCO's motion to bifurcate. PDF is here.
