zjohnr has it right. I joined IBM while the suit was in progress and under the records retention rule every memo had to be preserved (and I was in the typewriter division). Every year the case lasted generated more mountains of documents. Looking at the IBM discovery request (see links from groklaw) it looks like SCO will need to double their workforce to produce the documents if they still exist. On the otherhand, Boies worked on the IBM defense so he knows what to expect. I just don't see how he expects to win, although he may not have agreed with the decision to sue IBM. He's got to put bread on the table, too.
