In the latest in a long string of maneuvers, a group of shareholders filed a motion to prevent PeopleSoft from refunding customers in the event Oracle is successful in its hostile takeover plans.

The motion, filed Thursday afternoon at the Court of Chancery, State of Delaware, seeks to prevent PeopleSoft executives from putting a "poison pill" in any offer made by Oracle or other companies.
