Oracle, Oregon do battle

Ore. filed a lawsuit Fri. against Oracle (ORCL), which the state had contracted to create its health insurance exchange website. Ore. alleges that the software firm's officials made false statements and submitted false claims. Ore. acted after Oracle sued Aug. 8, alleging breach of contract and seeking payment for service. Oracle blames state workers for the failure. The website was never launched, and the state transitioned to the federally run site. Federal agencies are investigating Ore.'s exchange problems. Oracle shares rose 0.1% to 41.63.
