Judge Grants Waymo's Request To Postpone Trade Secret Trial Against Uber

Judge delays Uber-Alphabet trial citing withheld evidence: 'The public is going to hear everything'

Gonzalez repeatedly tried to persuade Alsup that the allegations in Jacobs' letter had nothing to do with Waymo's case against Uber. Waymo is now asking for further information from Uber and an investigation into the contents of Jacobs's letter, Gizmodo reports.

But Jacobs said that his lawyer was mistaken in making that allegation. According to Law360, a California judge ruled in Waymo's favor on Tuesday after Waymo accused Uber of hiding evidence that was discovered by federal prosecutors. San Francisco Judge William Alsup described it as a system that actively deletes messages after a small delay so as to leave no trace.

A federal criminal investigation into alleged espionage at Uber has indefinitely delayed a trial over whether the beleaguered ride-hailing service stole self-driving auto technology from Waymo, a spinoff from Google.

Jacobs, whose lawyer wrote the letter at the center of the courtroom drama, testified Tuesday that Uber had set up a secret unit to steal trade secrets from its rivals overseas.

Waymo sued Uber in February, accusing the company of stealing secretive self-driving auto technology.

The 37-page memo, written earlier this year by Ric Jacobs, detailed the tactics Uber used to allegedly obtain trade secrets and destroy evidence, according to WSJ.

Levandowski has since been fired by Uber.

Jacobs testified today in civil court that the Marketplace Analytics team scoured competitors' GitHub accounts to find private code but balked at the letter's suggestion that the team stole trade secrets, particularly from Waymo. In light of the new evidence and allegations that Uber lawyers had been withholding Jacobs's letter, the judge indefinitely delayed the trial, which was set to begin on December 4. Part of that settlement can be withheld if Jacobs violates a provision requiring him not to say anything that would harm Uber. Hackers stole the personal information of 57 million Uber users in October 2016, and Uber paid the hackers $100,000 to keep the theft secret.

Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Sadio Mane was upset over the position he played during Liverpool's 1-1 draw with Chelsea . Mane started the match against Chelsea as a substitute. "I was shouting at him because he was in the centre".

Alsup said it would be a "huge injustice" to force Waymo to go to trial given the new evidence that surfaced in the case, according Reuters.

The trial was originally scheduled to begin on December 4, but Waymo filed a last-minute motion to postpone on Monday.

A consortium led by Japan's SoftBank Group Corp this week is launching a multi-billion dollar tender offer for Uber shares, a deal that would bring the ride services company a well regarded, deep-pocketed investor.
