Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum has filed a lawsuit against Oracle America Inc. on charges of defrauding the residents of Oregon.
According to a news release from the office of the attorney general, "The 126-page civil complaint was made in connection with Oracle's failure to provide a timely and functional health exchange website and alleges that Oracle officials repeatedly made numerous false statements and used those statements to submit false claims to both the state and Cover Oregon which totaled hundreds of millions of dollars. It also states that Oracle failed to meet critical deadlines, overcharged for poorly trained personal who didn't perform up to standard, and demanded payment for insufficient work."
"Today's lawsuit explains how egregiously Oracle has disserved Oregonians and our state agencies," Rosenblum said in the release. "Through this legal action, we intend to make our state whole, and make sure taxpayers aren't left holding the bag."
The lawsuit seeks recovery of the financial losses suffered by the state and Cover Oregon and penalties for the damages caused by Oracle's alleged broken promises, fraud, racketeering and false payment claims.
The Oregon Department of Justice is at 1162 Court St. NE, Salem.
