It is very confusing. News reports on the Internet
claim Oregon is suing Oracle because the Oregon State Health
exchange does not work.
But Oracle also claims that Oregon failed to explain what
Oregon wanted and it was not clear what needed to be done.
Perhaps Oracle had good intentions at the beginning
but the healthcare website was far more difficult than anybody expected.
Oracle also has other contracts with other customers and it would
not be fair for Oregon to take all of Oracles resources and employees
away from Oracles other very important customers to try to refix
a healthcare website that is impossible to get working
with a reasonable number of workers.
This seems like a very difficult case for 12 people who are
unable to get out of jury duty to decide.
If all courts could convert to using an all volunteer jury system
volunteers will be more interested and pay more attention to
complex details of cases than draftees who do not even want to be there.
Thousands of court cases are very complex and could benefit
from voluntary jurors. Voluntary jurors who choose a starting
month and courthouse could still be selected at random for individual trials
that begin at that courthouse and time period so there is no
conflict of interest.
Abolishing the juror summons for people who do not want to serve
will eliminate a great annoyance for a lot of people.
