Uber house directors saw pivotal papers on an merger as partial of Alphabet lawsuit

A new justice filing sum that people have noticed a pivotal request that Alphabet argues will infer Uber knew it was inheriting Alphabet’s record when it acquired Otto.


Current Uber house member Arianna Huffington and former house member Bill Gurley are among those who have seen a report, according to Friday’s filing.

Uber came underneath inspection after it acquired self-driving trucking startup Otto, a business founded by Anthony Levandowski, who formerly led Alphabet’s unconstrained car efforts. Alphabet claims Levandowski stole 14,000 exclusive files before withdrawal to start Otto and is suing Uber over allegations a ride-hailing startup wasted that technology.

The lawsuit coincides with allegations of rampant passionate harassment during a association and revelations of questionably authorised practices, that have stirred first CEO Travis Kalanick to resign.

As partial of Uber’s merger of Otto, it consecrated a due industry report, that could exhibit if Uber was wakeful of any Alphabet record Levandowski might have had in his possession. Alphabet has been pulling for months for Uber to recover a report, though Uber has objected to a justice sequence to do so.

Now Uber has filed a request detailing who has seen a due industry report. Alphabet has argued that a due industry news would have suggested to Uber that Otto hexed stolen technology, that could meant Uber intentionally authorised stolen record to come over with a acquisition.

But Uber has pronounced a 14,000 files never overwhelmed a servers.

Friday’s justice filing does not contend when a people would have seen a due industry report. The filing says a people would have seen a news reduction exhibits, that means they would have seen descriptions of what a due industry routine found when it examined Otto though not indispensably photos of inclination or other materials that illustrate findings.

Here is a full list of who saw a report:

The following people perceived copies of a due industry news but exhibits: Tara Allport and Wendy Wu of Stroz Friedberg; 4 attorneys during Paul Weiss (who perceived it from then-Uber house member Bill Gurley); former Uber house member Bill Gurley (who perceived it from Uber in-house warn Angela Padilla); former Uber house member David Bonderman (who perceived it from Uber’s in-house counsel; Mr. Bonderman subsequently shredded his copy); Uber house member Arianna Huffington (who perceived it from Uber’s inhouse counsel); Nicole Bartow, Aaron Bergstrom, Andrew Glickman, Todd Hamblet, Christian Lymn, Angela Padilla, Justin Suhr, Robert Wu, and Salle Yoo of Uber’s inner Legal Team (Angela Padilla and Justin Suhr perceived it from Morrison Foerster and from there it was distributed to a above Uber in-house attorneys); Adam Bentley of Uber (who perceived it from O’Melveny Myers); John Gardner of Donahue Fitzgerald (who perceived it from Stroz Friedberg); Eric Amdursky of O’Melveny Myers (who perceived it from Stroz Friedberg); and Anthony Levandowski and Lior Ron.
