(Oregonian (Portland, OR) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Aug. 22--Oracle has issued a response to the lawsuit filed today by the Oregon Department of Justice. The suit accuses the software giant of racketeering and fraud in its work on the troubled Cover Oregon health exchange project.
Here's the company's entire response issued by a spokeswoman:
"The lawsuit filed today against Oracle by the Attorney General of Oregon is a desperate attempt to deflect blame from Cover Oregon and the Governor for their failures to manage a complex IT project. The complaint is a fictional account of the Oregon Healthcare Project. Oracle is confident that the truth -- and Oracle -- will prevail in this action and the one filed by Oracle against Cover Oregon two weeks ago in federal court."
