An Oracle investor has sued the company, following a $200 million settlement with the federal government. The money is to settle claims that Oracle fraudulently priced its GSA schedule contract. But the investor says the firm broke the rules, because of how it litigated that case.

Stephen Ryan leads the Government Strategies Practice Group at McDermott, Will and Emery. He's represented an Oracle executive in the past. He joined The Federal Drive with Tom Temin and Emily Kopp with his take.
