May 6, 2009 - Abbott Laboratories has - i2 Technologies sued California rival Oracle Corp. over the alleged infringement of 11 patents Thursday.

Filed in the federal Eastern District of Texas, the litigation alleges Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL) has infringed on patents related to software aimed at large companies.

One area of focus of the patents relates to so-called “supply chain management,” which helps manufacturers and other firms manage their relationships with their suppliers. Dallas-based i2 (NASDAQ: ITWO) is a large supplier of supply-chain management software, as it Oracle.

In a voicemail Thursday morning, a spokeswoman for Oracle declined to comment.
