The moment has passed
The wheels of justice grind oh so slowly. Seven years to reach an accord? It could have happened much more quickly, obviously, but Oracle got more than $359 million out of this tech sideshow. Distraction, drama, ridicule: this case had it all. But the moment has passed and many of the people involved have long since left SAP. Oracle knew there's nothing more to squeeze out of this case, so it gave up on further appeal or a new trial. On to the ongoing case against Rimini, which is already and mutli-year, seesaw case.
