Whats political about breach of contract? It was clearly premeditated when Oracle poached Hurd. If a jury can see through the Oracle facade in just 5 hours, there isn't much in the way of politics in my opinion.

Since WSJ won't let let me read the whole article. Here's a short but fuller story: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-06-30/oracle-ordered-to-pay-hp-3-billion-by-jury-for-itanium-damages

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)

A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
