Waymo seeks delay in self-driving trade secret trial against Uber

  • For months, Waymo had been seeking to obtain a 2016 due diligence report that Uber had completed prior to obtaining Levandowski’s company. Waymo hoped it would shed light on what Uber knew about Levandowski’s downloads, and when Uber knew them.

    A federal appeals court this week ordered Uber to disclose that diligence report.

  • In a court filing on Saturday, Waymo said the report contains critical evidence that necessitates further investigation which cannot be completed by Oct. 10.
  • Waymo referenced several portions of the due diligence report in the court filing, but this evidence was redacted and could not be viewed by the public.
  • Waymo said additional depositions, including those of Levandowski and Uber’s ex-CEO Travis Kalanick, would have to be completed now that the due diligence report and other files have been disclosed to Waymo.

Kalanick overheard saying: I'm too pretty for jail
