Oregon gov. Kids-hobbler has been yapping for months about how he's going to sue Oracle for the failed Cover Oregon Obamacare website, but as usual, he's been all bark and no bite. So Oracle took it off his hands, and preemptively filed suit against the state. In so doing, they've made abundantly clear that they're not going to tolerate continued yapping from the peanut gallery. They're demanding $23 million that the state still owes, plus unspecified damages for Retread's ongoing slanders.
And they've got an army of well-funded lawyers.
Retread's own hand-picked team declined to hire a systems integrator, which itself flies in the face of standard industry practices, and they did not specify deliverables in any of the contracts that they signed. They failed on all counts, and Retread paid them off to keep quiet even as he (by God!) "made heads roll". Then he blustered on about suing Oracle, all in an effort to deflect any blame from himself.
And now, as Oracle calls him out, he finds two cowboy boots stuck in his mouth. He may well suffocate.
