Battle for power at Uber as investor sues ex-CEO Travis Kalanick alleging fraud | Technology | The Guardian
Kalanick failed to disclose vital information about the self-driving truck startup Otto before Uber acquired it for $680m in 2016, the complaint alleges. That acquisition has been tainted by a massive lawsuit brought by Google spinoff Waymo over allegations that former Google engineer and Otto founder Anthony Levandowski stole Google’s intellectual property and took it to Uber.

The lawsuit makes clear that Benchmark blames Kalanick personally for the mess, which poses a serious danger to Uber’s ability to develop its own autonomous vehicle technology. //&! https://www.recode.net/2017/8/14/16144710/uber-benchmark-capital-travis-kalanick-lawsuit-board-ceo &! https://techcrunch.com/2017/08/11/uber-board-benchmark-lawsuit/ &! https://soundcloud.com/exponentfm/episode-121-the-uber-mutation
