Today in federal court, Judge William Alsup handed Uber even more bad news.

The court actualization was meant to be a plea by Uber to move its case with Waymo to clandestine adjudication to avoid trial. It failed. After because the evidence, Judge Alsup instead ruled that Waymo could advance with its suit. An Uber adumbrative told :

It is adverse that Waymo will be acceptable to avoid constant by the adjudication affiance it requires its advisers to make. We remain assured in our case and acceptable the chance to talk about our apart developed technology in any forum.

Further complicating affairs for Uber, Judge Alsup then asked the US Attorney to appraise Waymo’s affirmation to actuate whether Uber had committed any crimes. Waymo, Google’s self-driving car spin-off, claims that Uber stole trade secrets and bookish property.  The trade secrets in catechism relate to LIDAR and other radar-like sensors that helps an autonomous agent navigate. Uber denies any wrongdoing.

So far, the scene has been beeline out of a Hollywood court drama. Allegations have been made that Uber hid affirmation from the court, and one controlling invoked the Fifth Amendment to avoid self-incrimination.

If the US Attorney opens the case, it’d be the second such case adjoin Uber this month.
