Whew! It was beginning to look as though AG Ellen wasn't going to come through on the big lawsuit against Oracle in time to provide gov. Retread some much-needed distraction ahead of the November election. Thankfully, she managed, so now the state can proceed to plow through millions more in tax dollars as lawyers attempt to defend state managers from the lawsuit that Oracle filed against the state two weeks ago, and at the same time attempts to push through an unwinnable suit alleging civil racketeering by the company.
Ideally, Oracle will end up hauling both gov. Retread and his opponent in the race into court so that Retread can once again do his Sgt. Schultz routine, followed up by Richardson pointing out that he warned Retread repeatedly for over a year that the Cover Oregon exchange was going down in flames. The next few months should be highly entertaining - albeit expensive.
