Report: HP sues Mark Hurd

Hurd recently took a co-president post at rival Oracle

Hewlett-Packard is suing its former CEO, Mark Hurd, who was named co-president of rival Oracle on Monday, according to a report on the Wall Street Journal's website.

Hurd left HP last month after a scandal involving an undisclosed relationship with a contractor and allegedly falsified expense reports.

The nature of the suit was not immediately clear, but it could be related to a severance agreement Hurd signed with HP.
