Former Google, Uber engineer indicted for trade secret theft

Posted online

Former Google and Uber engineer Anthony Levandowski was indicted for allegedly stealing trade secrets.

Levandowski was at the center of a now-settled civil case between Uber and Alphabet, Google's owner.

Self-driving car company Waymo, which is owned by Alphabet, last year accused Uber of stealing trade secrets. Waymo alleged Levandowski illegally downloaded 14,000 confidential documents before leaving Waymo to start Otto, his own self-driving car venture. Uber bought Otto shortly after.

The indictment contains 33 counts of theft and attempted theft of trade secrets.
