Uber’s Internal Investigation Into Allegedly Stolen Trade Secrets Was Just Made Public

“The Stroz Report unequivocally shows that, before it acquired his company, Uber knew Anthony Levandowski had a massive trove of confidential Waymo source code, design files, technical plans and other materials after leaving Google,” said a Waymo spokesperson in a statement. “Knowing all of this, Uber paid $680 million for Mr. Levandowski’s company, protected him from legal action, and installed him as the head of their self-driving vehicle program.”

The report, which Waymo submitted late Monday evening, said that Levandowski was aware he held Waymo’s private documents on his personal computer after he quit Google and knowingly had them destroyed.
