Section 4.16(b) of the Asset Purchase Agreement (“APA”); (3) SCO’s Third Claim for Relief,

#411: SCO’S MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT
August 29, 2007
SCO respectfully requests that the Court enter final judgment under Rule 54(b)
respect to those claims which are fully and completely resolved by the Court’s granting of
summary judgment motions in its Order dated August 10, 2007 (the “Order”). The questions
under Rule 54(b) are whether the Court has made “a decision upon a cognizable claim for relief”
in the sense that it is “an ultimate disposition of an individual claim entered in the course of a
multiple claims action,” and whether there is any “just cause for delay” of an appeal from the
decision. Curtiss-Wright Corp. v. Gen. Elec. Co., 446 U.S. 1, 7 (1980); accord McKibben v.
Chubb, 840 F.2d 1525, 1528-29 (10th Cir. 1988). With respect to certain of SCO’s claims and
Novell’s counterclaims, the Order satisfies each requirement.
