WSJ.com - Former Ally of Oracle Aids PeopleSoft Defense

WSJ.com - Former Ally of Oracle Aids PeopleSoft Defense "Larry Ellison, the chief executive of Oracle Corp., cheered from the sidelines through much of the 1990s as attorney Gary Reback mobilized Silicon Valley to spur the government to take action against Microsoft Corp.'s monopolistic practices.
Now that Mr. Reback is again practicing law in Palo Alto, Calif., after a three-year stint as an entrepreneur, Mr. Ellison's cheers for his erstwhile ally may well be turning to groans. Mr. Reback's first local client is PeopleSoft Inc., which has retained him to turn his extensive antitrust knowledge against Oracle's hostile, $6.3 billion takeover bid."

PeopleSoft better hope he's a bit more successful this time...
