PeopleSoft expands Oracle lawsuit


PeopleSoft expands Oracle lawsuit

PeopleSoft has added more allegations to its lawsuit against Oracle in its latest attempt to block Oracle's hostile takeover bid.

The enterprise software company has amended its complaint against Oracle to include what it claimed are "extensive new facts" about Oracle's alleged efforts to disrupt PeopleSoft's customer relationships. It also talks about a campaign to mislead PeopleSoft customers about Oracle's plans to support the company's products.

The amendments add claims of interference with customers of JD Edwards, which PeopleSoft acquired last month.

Parts of the PeopleSoft complaint were not available to the public and the company provided no additional details in its statement about the new allegations. The company sued Oracle, after Oracle launched a hostile acquisition bid in June.

Oracle said it was not surprised by the new complaints and said they would not stop its bid. "It does not change our commitment to acquire PeopleSoft," a spokesman said.
