Both sides of the Oregon v. Oracle dispute claimed a partial victory after a hearing in Marion County Circuit Court on Thursday.
At issue was the state’s challenge to documents related to the Cover Oregon mess that Oracle marked “confidential” and “attorney’s eyes only.” The state contends Oracle marked 95 percent of the documents in the case with those two designations.
Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum said this has impeded the state’s case and hidden documents from the public and government officials that undermine Oracle’s claims that the health exchange actually worked.
Circuit Judge Courtland Geyer ordered Oracle to review and re-designate all documents according to the terms of a protective order. The judge also removed those designations from seven documents the state brought to the court’s attention in January, said Rosenblum spokeswoman Kristina Edmunson.
In all, Oracle marked 100,000 documents "attorneys' eyes only" and the rest were marked confidential, for a total of 480,000 documents that Oracle will need to review, Edmunson said.
