HP Sues Hurd After Taking Job at Oracle

The WSJ:

Hewlett-Packard Co. sued former Chief Executive Officer Mark Hurd a day after he was named co-president of rival Oracle Corp., according to people familiar with the matter.

The suit was filed in Superior Court of California in Santa Clara, according to the people familiar with the matter. The contents of the suit weren’t clear but a person familiar with the suit said it centered around a confidentiality provision in Mr. Hurd’s exit agreement from H-P.

Just keeps getting better.
