SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A federal judge has denied I-B-M's request to dismiss a major part of the S-C-O Group's 5 (B)billion dollar Linux lawsuit.

At least, not until more evidence is gathered.

S-C-O, a Lindon-based company, says in its suit against I-B-M that its Unix code was illegally incorporated into the freely distributed Linux operating system.

But U.S. District Judge Dale Kimball says the company hasn't proved that in court.

Kimball says though he is tempted to grant I-B-M's motion, he wants to give S-C-O more time to make its case.
