PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - The Oregon Supreme Court has denied a request by Oracle Corp. to have five of its executives excluded from a lawsuit filed by the state over the failure of the Cover Oregon health insurance exchange.

The court issued the ruling Thursday without explanation.

Oracle asked the high court in August to overturn a ruling by a Marion County judge, who said the employees should remain defendants in the lawsuit.

Oregon sued Oracle and the five executives, including co-CEO Safra Catz, in their personal capacities a year ago. The state alleges they conspired to enrich themselves and made false claims at the expense of taxpayers.

Oracle argued that people can’t be sued solely for their actions on behalf of their employer.

A company spokeswoman declined to comment.
