Oracle and Oregon face off in website contract dispute

Just to the north of us here in California, the state of Oregon and the tech company Oracle have been locked in a contract dispute over the state’s healthcare website which was “botched,” according to the source article. Oracle blames the state for mismanagement, while the state accuses Oracle of fraud and racketeering. The state of Oregon is asking for $6.5 billion in damages as a result of their botched healthcare website.

An interesting development in the case is that confidential documents that were sealed under court order were released to the public through a reporter. Oracle contends that the state of Oregon allowed this to happen, tipping off the reporter and helping her to publish the information. Oracle also contends that the case was already settled last year for $25 million, but that the state is lying about the deal not happening. The details of the botched website aren’t necessarily the point of this post (though they obviously are important in the grand scheme of things). For the purposes of this post, we would like to highlight that businesses can face legal action from a variety of sources and for a variety of reasons.

Though this particular case is a high-profile case of a project falling through or otherwise failing, companies can face legal action from states, people, groups of people, governing bodies, regulatory agencies and, of course, other companies. These cases can involve many different circumstances and allegations. As a result, any company needs experienced and proper legal representation to protect itself from these many legal threats.

Mr. Cai Is a Diligent Attorney. My sister and I were defendants in a civil litigation case. We hired James Cai and his law firm, SAC Attorneys LLP. Mr. Cai is a diligent attorney and responded to our questions in a timely fashion. He and his staff were very helpful in keeping us informed of the proceedings of the case and in explaining each step. Mr. Cai is also very conscientious of fees and costs, and avoided unnecessary charges. The results of the Summary Adjudication sided with us. The Court Trial resulted in the “Final Statement of Decision” and “Judgment after Court Trial” overwhelmingly siding with us. Cynthia F.

I Am Truly Impressed. After spending a significant amount of time, money and efforts with my previous counsel at a larger law firm without getting meaningful results, I transferred my employment matter to SAC Attorneys LLP. The attorneys there were able to understand the complex situations of my case and put together an aggressive litigation strategy. We were able to file a compelling complaint within a week and forced the opposing party, which was represented by one of the largest law firms in California, to make a substantial settlement offer shortly thereafter. I am truly impressed by the no nonsense and results oriented approach by SAC Attorneys LLP attorneys. A job well done! X. Gao

They Took Time to Understand Our Technology. I am the founder of a bioinformatics start-up in the Silicon Valley and chose SAC Attorneys LLP as our corporate counsels. Their attorneys have great experience with high tech start-ups and were able to offer a highly competitive service plan while not sacrificing a bit of their quality of services. They took time to understand our technology and provided value added services by introducing investors and job candidates to us. We regard our attorneys at SAC Attorneys LLP not only as our legal advisors but also our venture partners. Dr. Pete S.
