PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Oracle America has amended its lawsuit against Oregon over the state’s troubled health insurance website.

The company’s new complaint adds an allegation of copyright infringement on top of the earlier accusations that Oregon breached contracts and failed to act in good faith. The amended suit was filed last week in federal court in Portland.

Oracle filed for protections from the U.S. Copyright Office shortly before filing its amended complaint. The company says Oregon cannot use or modify Oracle’s software because the state has not fully paid for the work Oracle performed.

Oregon has separately sued Oracle in state court alleging racketeering, fraud and false claims. The state has asked a judge to dismiss or delay the federal case while the state case advances.
