HP Sues Ex-CEO Hurd Over Oracle’s Job Offer
by Richard Gonzales
Mark Hurd recently was fired from his job as CEO of Hewlett-Packard after a scandal involving an extra-martial relationship. One of HP’s main tech rivals — Oracle — wants to make Hurd its co-president. That’s prompted HP to sue, claiming Hurd can’t possibly perform the new job without tapping into HP’s trade secrets.
