Supreme Court takes up Rimini Street, Oracle dispute over costs

The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear a dispute between software company Oracle Corp and rival Rimini Street Inc over the scope of fees that can be awarded to a prevailing party in copyright disputes.

Rimini Street was ordered to pay Oracle close to $20 million in costs as part of a $124 million verdict in 2015 after a jury found that it copied Oracle’s software, but Rimini Street has argued that $12.8 million of those costs cannot be awarded under federal law. The Supreme Court agreed to take the case on Thursday.
