Well, it looks like Uber may fire the engineer accused of stealing 14,000 documents from Waymo, Google’s self-driving car division. He was recently ordered by the court in the case to return the documents.
According to a court filing, Uber told Levandowski that he must comply with an order to return Waymo documents or face possible termination.
Uber general counsel, Salle Yoo, wrote in a letter to Levandowski: “If you do not agree to comply with all of the requirements set forth herein, or if you fail to comply in a material manner, then Uber will take adverse employment action against you, which may include termination of your employment.”
The problem of course is that if he does return the documents, he’s likely going to jail.
