The Judge in the Alphabet/Uber Lawsuit Rejects a Fifth Amendment Claim to Keep Key Details Private

“There will be time enough to argue soon over whether the due diligence report itself must be produced,” Alsup’s order said. “But for now that report must be put on a privilege log in the conventional way — without any of the redactions requested by counsel for Levandowski.”

Levandowski’s attorneys argued that revealing details of the report would violate his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination because the document details “might furnish a link in a chain of possible incrimination.”
