The due diligence report at center of Waymo-Uber case

AP

A due diligence report prepared by a forensics company as part of Uber's acquisition last year of a startup founded by former Waymo employee Anthony Levandowski has been publicly released. The report's contents confirm much of what Waymo, which is suing Uber for allegedly stealing its trade secrets, has suspected about Levandowski.

Why it matters: Levandowski fought to keep the report from turning up in the lawsuit, even appealing the court's decision to allow it to be released. Waymo believed it contained incriminating evidence and pushed to get access to it.
