Google wants the Oracle lawyer who leaked its Android numbers to be punished

Seth Wenig/AP Google is asking for sanctions against Oracle after one of the software developer's lawyers discussed confidential details about the search giant's relationship with Apple at a court hearing earlier this month. Oracle's lawyer disclosed sensitive financial information regarding the relationship along with confidential information about Google's finances, which within days became headline news,

Google said in a letter on Wednesday to U.S. District Judge William Alsup and U.S. Magistrate Judge Donna Ryu. In its letter Google requested permission to file a motion seeking sanctions, for a finding of contempt, and asked that Oracle's lawyer not have further access to its confidential information or confidential information of a third party. The disclosure violated a protective order and led to an article by Bloomberg that "opened the floodgates" to more stories, including by Reuters, regarding the closely held information, the letter said. "The severe potential consequences of public disclosure quickly became reality, particularly given the surprising nature of the disclosure," according to the letter.
