Oracle is suing the USG Department of Labor over the existence of the Department's "administrative courts" where Oracle is being sued for alleged pay discrimination (archived). Since 2017 the Department of Labor has been suing the firm over an alleged 400 million USD underpayment of wages to women and colored people. Oracle's response this week raises the Department's stake in attempting to innovate new common law by cutting at the dubious constitutional legitimacy of the administrative court itself.
Unnamed "experts" inside the zone are writing off the possibility Oracle's suit suceeds in trimming the US federal bureaucracy as "unlikely" in comments to Pantsuitist media though in a common law system, anything can happen without regard for what the laws actually say. An Oracle win would gut this particular system and provide precedent for cutting at numerous other "administrative" dockets.
