You would think that a high-dollar attorney working for Oracle would know better than to pull a stunt like this. Google is asking for sanctions against the attorney but no ruling has been made yet. All I can say is that I wouldn't want to be in that lawyers shoes right now.

The confidential information included financial figures stating that Google generated $31 billion in revenue and $22 billion in profits from the Android operating system in the wake of its 2008 debut. The Oracle attorney, Annette Hurst, also revealed another trade secret: Google paid Apple $1 billion in 2014 to include Google search on iPhones.
