SCO’s legal case against Novell over alleged infringement of its intellectual property rights has been delayed until the end of May.

The case, based on claims against Novell’s open source products, had been expected to begin this week.

Novell denies SCO’s claims and will seek to have the case dismissed in May.

SCO’s case against IBM over similar allegations looks set to go to full trial at the end of this year.

SCO, now de-listed from the Nasdaq stock exchange, recently re-stated its financial results for the first three quarters of the last financial year, following accounting errors.

The main errors relate to the way stock-based compensation to employees was shown in the accounts. SCO says the resulting changes in the re-statement do not affect its previously reported operating performance.
