Uber fires self-driving car engineer amid legal fight with Google
Uber has fired the engineer accused of stealing secrets from Google-owner Alphabet after he failed to assist with an investigation related to the lawsuit. In a court filing last month, Uber maintained its technology is different. He started working at Uber in August 2016, when the firm bought Otto, the self-driving truck start-up he had created in the six months after leaving Google. Uber maintains its technology is different to Waymo's and says there isn't evidence the files are on its servers. A spokeswoman for Uber said the firing occurred after Mr Levandowski failed to meet the deadline that would allow Uber to cooperate with the judge's order.
