I am hearing first word from the court that AutoZone's Emergency Motion to Stay was denied, and SCO will be allowed to proceed with discovery. This is not yet confirmed 100%, but an eyewitness tells me that is what happened. I am seeking confirmation and will update when I have further word.

Keep in mind that they were allowed to do discovery before under the original order, so from that standpoint it's a stand pat order. AutoZone, who knows how silly it all is, gave it a shot, but the judge intends to do limited discovery, and that is his decision. The problem really was that no one completely understood what the judge had ordered. Now we know. That really is all that happened.
