(verb, past tense) A situation where a litigant brings action against an innocent party and is found out by a judge to be bringing the case in bad faith. That party is then said to have been "scowned." Has its roots in the SCO vs IBM case.
In conclusion, you do not own the patent to filenames. Therefore, this court has no option but to record a verdict of the plaintiff having been scowned.
