Legal Not too long ago, Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw explained he had found the perfect husband for Lara Croft: Jason Voorhees. They both have way too many sequels all following a default plot, they both murder a lot and spend a lot of time underground, but most of all: none of them will ever just die. In that light, I suggest another husband for Miss Croft: Darl McBride. Instant update: Darl McBride responds. See inside.

Would a lawyer explain how the appeals panel found Kimball's summary judgment "premature" ?

From groklaw: The appeals court found that the Kimball ruling was premature because he didn't remand it to a jury. When ever there is a question/case that could go either way, a jury is suppose to decide. However, McBride is no longer in control. SCO was appointed a Chapter 11 Trustee, who now gets to make ALL decisions for the company. And then there is the fact that SCO has been completely unable to prove any of its claims. The sad part is that this is just burning through money that won't be able to be given to Novel. They are just going to get whats left (which isnt much at this point).

If I understand correctly, the point of a summary judgment is to avoid the expense and time of a jury trial. I guess the appeals court ruled that Kimball cut his decision too fine for their comfort?
