ANTI-LINUX bad-boy SCO is watching its case against IBM collapse around its ears as an attempt to get Biggish Blue to pay for wrecking its case by spoiling evidence has been chucked out.

According to Groklaw, wanted a Motion for Relief for IBM's Spoliation of Evidence. It claimed that IBM destroyed evidence so that SCO could not prove its case.

It provided an email from IBM's Open Source Steering Committee which directed the destruction of evidence to Judge Wells.

Judge Wells told SCO that rather than the evidence being spoiled, and based on what she was looking at, it was still freely available if SCO looked hard enough. µ
