In his complaint, Garrison said that the restrictive hiring agreement between Oracle and Google was first publicly disclosed in a filing in the California court in May last year. The companies agreed not to pursue manager level and above candidates from each other for product, sales, or G&A (general and administrative roles), even if they applied for jobs, according to the complaint.
Oracle could not be immediately reached for comment.
Garrison has asked the court for class certification and a jury trial besides triple damages from Oracle, among other things.
