PeopleSoft claims it has "extensive new facts" that Oracle purposely misled PeopleSoft customers about Oracle's plans to support its software if its hostile takeover attempt succeeded.
The claims are made in a an amendment to an existing complaint filed with the California Superior Court in Alameda County. PeopleSoft says it has "extensive new facts about Oracle management's ongoing acts of unfair trade practices, including its efforts to disrupt PeopleSoft's customer relationships".
The new complaint also adds claims that Oracle interfered with customers of JD Edwards. "PeopleSoft's complaint will continue to seek both injunctive relief and damages, including damage caused to J.D. Edwards," PeopleSoft said in a statement.
An Oracle spokesman dismissed the changes to the law suit. "We were aware they were going to file an amended complaint, so we are not surprised and it does not change our commitment to acquire PeopleSoft," he said.
PeopleSoft already faces a counter suit from Oracle, which seeks removal of PeopleSoft's poison pill anti-takeover clauses.
