The date for the first case-management meeting in the lawsuit Oracle has brought against SAP has been postponed for a second time and is now set for September 25.
The meeting was originally set for September 4 but was put back to September 11 because the judge was ill. Unavailability of counsel scuppered the second date. The meeting has now been reset for 2pm September 25 and will be heard by Judge Martin J Jenkins of the US District Court for the Northern District of California.
A joint statement from the two parties is due 10 days prior to the meeting. The case concerns Oracle allegations against SAP subsidiary TomorrowNow. The third-party maintenance provider is alleged to have downloaded customer support materials it had no right to and breached multiple Oracle copyrights. SAP admits to some inappropriate downloads but denies most of Oracle’s allegations.
