Summary Box: Shuttered SAP subsidiary charged

THE ALLEGATIONS: The Justice Department charged SAP AG’s now-defunct subsidiary, TomorrowNow, with 12 counts related to the theft of software and documents from Oracle Corp. websites in a 4-year-old case.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT: SAP has admitted the theft. It reached a plea agreement with prosecutors and faces sentencing Wednesday. The proposed amount of the penalty was sealed in court records.

OTHER PARTS TO THE CASE: The theft already led to a $1.3 billion jury verdict against SAP last year, although a federal judge threw out the award last week and called it grossly excessive.
