Oracle Faces A $32 Million Claim From Rimini Street

In the legal case that just won't go away, IT services company Rimini Street this week filed a claim against Oracle seeking to have $32 million cut from earlier fines and court costs levied against Rimini following a 2015 trial.

The long-running copyright dispute stems from Rimini Street's hosting of Oracle software and use of Oracle support materials to provide support services to Oracle software users. Following the 2015 trial, and in subsequent court rulings in the case, Rimini Street was hit with fines and court costs of nearly $124 million.

But earlier this month the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, while reaffirming the original court finding, reduced the judgment against Rimini by $50 million. Because Rimini Street has already paid the judgments, the company said at the time that it expects a $50 million refund from Oracle.

This week Rimini Street filed another petition with the appeals court saying that Oracle owes it an additional refund of $32 million, arguing that the original judgment was faulty in calculating interest and non-taxable costs in the case.
