SAP, Oracle Case Management Meeting Postponed
Updated: A joint case management conference has been rescheduled to Sept. 11 in a San Francisco court.The case management conference scheduled to kick off Oracles suit against SAP has been postponed before it even got off the ground. A SAP spokesperson has confirmed that the case management meeting scheduled for Sept. 4 at 2 p.m. PDT in a San Francisco court, was cancelled at the last minute due to the judges illnessand not because either company was wrangling for an extension. The conference has been rescheduled to Sept. 11. On Aug. 28 both companies filed a joint case management conference statement making their initial arguments to the U.S. District Court, Northern District of California, San Francisco Division. SAP, in its segment of the statement, is seeking a speedy resolution to the case, which would include court-ordered mediation through a process known as ADR, or alternative dispute resolution. Oracle, based on seemingly new claims that allege that SAP has been stealing from Oracle for years, is asking for at least an 18-month discovery period leading up to a jury trial in the latter half of 2009.
