Partner Randall J. Baron told the Delaware Chancery Court that Ellison and Oracle CEO Safra Catz manipulated the Special Committee and caused Oracle to pay for “‘part of NetSuites business that Oracle did not need, did not want and [in] fact was of little or no value’” to Oracle.

Baron questioned Oracle director George H. Conrades, the first live witness to testify, as reported by Law360.

In addition to Baron, Robbins Geller attorneys David A. Knotts and Christopher H. Lyons are litigating the case.
