The Uber and Waymo lawsuit continues at pace, with this brilliant quote from the judge last week:
I have never seen a case where there were so many bad things done like Uber has done in this case
The jury trial is now scheduled for February next year, after a 37-page letter was revealed to the court from a ‘former’ employee of Uber detailing numerous alleged questionable behaviors at the company. Uber were allegedly investigating these claimed, which they deny, and had done so by rehiring the employee as an investigator, with a $2 million upfront payment, $1 million over the next 12 months, and $1.5 million in stock, also over 12 months.
That’s of course not counting the $3 million they paid his lawyer.
Cue the judge:
To someone like me, an ordinary mortal, and to ordinary mortals out there in the audience — people don’t pay that kind of money for B.S.
