Judge blocks top Uber engineer from working on key self-driving technology amid battle with Alphabet

If a divine justice exists, that’s the living proof.

Remember the famous lawsuit Google v. Uber? Uber has acquired Otto, a company founded by a former top engineer of Google (actually of Waymo, it’s department working on self-driving cars).

Google accused Uber of theft of proprietary information and breach of trade secrets. The judge himself stated that the amount of evidence colllected by Google was impressive. And it actually was! The court ruled firstly that Uber could not transfer the litigation to a private arbitration (keeping it secret, ay!) and finally that the engineer cannot work for Uber.

No wonder Google is doing great on the Nasdaq right now!
