Oregon Attorney General Rosenblum Request To Sue Oracle DENIED

A Marion County Circuit Court Judge denied Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum’s request to dismiss Oracle America’s lawsuit to enforce an alleged settlement of the Cover Oregon litigation.Oracle contends that Gov. Kate Brown’s former chief of staff entered into an oral agreement with an Oracle executive to settle all cases for $25 million. Rosenblum argued that Gov. Kate Brown lacked the authority to settle the cases under the state’s False Claims Act. But Circuit Judge Sean Armstrong said neither statute cited by Rosenblum states that only the AG may settle cases. The statutes don’t even grant her the exclusive authority to initiate the actions, Armstrong said in a letter to the attorneys. He wrote that he”cannot conclude that the Governor lacked authority to settle the Oracle claims.” Oracle was pleased with the ruling.
