Judge in Uber-Waymo case wants to know what arbitration will cover
The judge overseeing the case between Uber and Alphabet's Waymo unit wants to know just how much of the dispute could be covered by a pending arbitration case.
Here's the full order issued Sunday by Judge Wiiliam Alsup:
Why it matters: Waymo has sued Google in federal court for trade secret theft, while Uber is seeking to have the case handled through arbitration. Arbitration keeps things quieter, while in court both documents and proceedings are largely public.
