(Salem, OR)  --  Governor John Kitzhaber is asking the state attorney general to begin legal action against an information technology company for its role in the troubled rollout of Cover Oregon.  Oracle Corporation has received more than 130-million dollars in state money for the failed health-care exchange website.  Kitzhaber says because the website was not launched as scheduled and didn't work, there's cause for a lawsuit.  The governor has also asked the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to impose fines and penalties against Oracle.
