Oracle sued over Obamacare stuff up

Written by Nick Farrell

Oregon miffed that system did not work

Oregon is so unhappy with the performance of the website that Oracle built for its Obamacare rollout it is suing and it is not mincing its words.

Oracle billed hundreds of millions of dollars to build the site and when it did not work Oracle sued Oregon for $23 million more for its work.

Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber in May “asked the state attorney general to take legal action against” Oracle to get its money.

The complaint from the state of Oregon is vicious. It said that over the last three years, Oracle has presented the State and Cover Oregon with some $240,280,008 in false claims under those contracts.

It called Oracle “racketeering activity” that has cost the State and Cover Oregon hundreds of millions of dollars.

Ellen Rosenblum, the Attorney General for the State of Oregon, along with the State and Cover Oregon, brings this lawsuit to recover losses to the State and Cover Oregon caused by Oracle’s fraud, racketeering, false claims, and broken contracts.

Oracle couldn't show a working website by September 2013 and the state realised that, according to the complaint, “Oracle’s assurances were worthless.”

To make matters worse a former Oracle employee told the State that it had been sold a lie.

Apparently Oracle cobbled together collection of products which it called the “Oracle Solution” was not flexible, was not integrated, and most importantly, did not work “out-of-the-box.”
