On Friday, three managers in Uber's security division resigned, as Reuters first reported and the company confirmed to Axios. A fourth, head of global threat operations Mat Henley, reportedly is now on a three-month medical leave.

Between the lines: Though an Uber spokesperson stressed that the resignations aren't related to any ongoing investigations and completely voluntary, it's not hard to see that the security team has been under tremendous pressure, scrutiny recently. Last week the company fired its security chief for concealing a 2016 data breach, and earlier this week, Uber's new chief legal officer blasted the company's old surveillance tactics for gathering information about competitors, which came to light via its ongoing legal battle with rival Waymo (though none of the managers resigning worked on the team referenced in this week's court hearings).

Joe Biden told CBS' "60 Minutes" this week that if elected, he would put together a bipartisan commission to study the federal court system and make recommendations for reform.

Why it matters: Biden has come under pressure to clarify his position on court packing after some Democrats suggested expanding the court if Senate Republicans confirm President Trump's Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett.

Investors' return on U.S. corporate bonds has been falling since its August peak, but buying has only accelerated, especially in investment grade bonds that are offering historically low yields.

The state of play: Since hitting its 2020 high on Aug. 4, the benchmark Bloomberg Barclays U.S. bond aggregate has delivered a -2.2% return. (For comparison, the S&P 500 has gained 3.9% during the same time period.)
