PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Oregon officials say the state has spent nearly $16 million so far building its case against the giant software company Oracle Corp.

The Oregonian/Oregon Live reports (https://bit.ly/2a9mPRa ) that the Oregon Legislative Fiscal Office says the money went toward demonstrating that Oracle badly bungled the Cover Oregon health care exchange. The trial begins in January, and the Department of Justice has estimated that the cost of the lawsuit could be more than $27 million by next April.

That would make the lawsuit one of the most expensive in department history.

Not only is the case pricey, it’s mostly been kept under wraps. Oracle has argued for thousands of pages of evidence to be kept confidential and entire court hearings have been closed to the public.
