Hani Durzy for the HP Corporate Blog:

In response to the news of Mark Hurd’s intention to join Oracle, HP today filed a civil complaint in the California Superior Court (County of Santa Clara) against Hurd. HP’s statement on the matter:

“Mark Hurd agreed to and signed agreements designed to protect HP’s trade secrets and confidential information. HP intends to enforce those agreements.”

Sounds like a whole lotta crying over at HP. Larry Ellison is going to have a field day with this, God do I wish Ellison had a blog of his own.
