Uber hires second law firm to investigate harassment claims
Susan Fowler Rigetti, the former Uber engineer who recently accused the company of ignoring sexual harassment and gender discrimination, today sent out a tweet that again had Silicon Valley buzzing:
The reference to "Holders" law firm is Covington & Burling, where former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is a partner. Following Rigetti's initial claims, Uber retained Holder to investigate.
An Uber spokeswoman tells Axios that it has indeed hired an alternate law firm:
Uber also says that Perkins Coie has been in contact with Rigetti's attorneys. Axios has reached out to Rigetti for comment, and will update if she replies.
