  • Court Orders Uber To Return Stolen Files To Waymo

Uber has been ordered by a court to return stolen files to Google's self-driving vehicle company Waymo after an ex-employee stole the information before getting hired on by Uber. Alsup last week ruled that Waymo's lawsuit should not be heard in a private forum, and instead should continue to be litigated in San Francisco federal court. An Uber spokesman declined to comment. The ride-hailing app is able to continue working on its self-driving auto project, however, and the court found that very little of Waymo's intellectual property had found its way into Uber's prototypes. Attorneys representing Mr. Levandowski didn't respond to a request for comment. "The choice is yours, Mr. Levandowski". "[Waymo's] decision to bring separate claims against defendants in court was not only reasonable but also the only course available, since Waymo had no arbitration agreement with defendants".

Uber's appeal to mitigate headlines is just the latest development in what has so far been an absolutely frightful year. The company could keep a top engineer and argue it struggled to comply with the judge's demands for more information without Mr. Levandowski's assistance.

Waymo sued ride services company Uber Technologies alleging that former Waymo executive Anthony Levandowski downloaded over 14,000 confidential documents before leaving Waymo to subsequently join Uber. A trial is set for October in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California in San Francisco.

Waymo called the appeal an attempt by Uber to hide its alleged theft of trade secrets from the public.
