This *is* a scox victory

>>SCO is relying on the corruption in America to get some kind of a victory, except that America probably isn't that corrupt. We'll see what happens. <<

The whole idea of the scox-scam is to pump the stock price so canopy can back out of a bad investment (canopy owns over 40% of scox). And it is working like a charm!

Average estimates: scox was supposed to earn $0.36/share this quarter. Instead scox losses $0.12/share. That's a *huge* $0.48/share miss. That's is more than enough to tank most small cap stocks, instead scox is up.

Scox has gone up from $1/share to $19/share since the scam started. That is a huge victory for the scam artists. Forget the USA justice system - they're happy to look the other way.

America probably isn't that corrupt? Maybe you should reconsider that assertion.
