Breaking up is hard to do.

Within a day of the news that former Hewlett-Packard CEO Mark Hurd is joining Oracle as co-president, HP says it’s going to sue the SOB.

The lawsuit was previewed on an HP blog.  Full text here.

Oracle, now home to Sun Microsystems hardware arsenal, is now a direct rival to erstwhile partner HP and the HP board is clearly angry that Hurd took tens of millions in HP severance money and moved up 101 to Oracle’s glass towers in Redwood Shores.
