Uber threatens to fire self-driving car engineer in trade secrets case
19 Mai, 2017, 12:17 | Author: Come Portier
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.
