On August 15, a Federal Court in Nevada once again granted Oracle's motion for a permanent injunction against Rimini Street and required payment to Oracle of $28 million in attorney’s fees due to Rimini’s egregious litigation misconduct.
In upholding the injunction, the Court made clear that Rimini’s business “was built entirely on its infringement of Oracle’s copyrighted software.” In addition, the court noted that Rimini’s improper conduct not only enabled the company to grow quickly, but also unfairly “eroded the bonds and trust that Oracle has with its customers.”
In a statement, Dorian Daley, Oracle's Executive Vice President and General Counsel, reinforced the Court’s findings. “As the Court's Order today makes clear, Rimini Street's business has been built entirely on unlawful conduct, and Rimini's executives have repeatedly lied to cover up their company's illegal acts.”
