Rosenblum, et al. vs. Oracle America, Inc., et al.
Steve Berman successfully defended two of former Governor Kitzhaber’s political advisors in a $33 million lawsuit brought against them by tech giant Oracle. In late February 2015, Oracle filed its lawsuit alleging that the political advisors were responsible for the state’s decision to terminate a $300,000 contract with Oracle to develop Oregon’s health care exchange. Within six months, Berman obtained a full dismissal of all of Oracle’s claims against the firm’s clients. After considering Stoll Berne’s arguments, the trial court judge ruled that Oracle’s arguments were “totally unsupported.” Oracle was ordered to pay Stoll Berne’s clients’ attorneys’ fees and costs.
