Justice Department investigating Uber “Greyball” operations in Austin.
Looks like the Feds have started contacting municipalities who may have been affected by Uber’s Greyball operation. Greyball was a system designed to thwart local regulators when Uber moved into a new city.
A city spokesman confirmed that Justice Department officials contacted staffers at Austin’s Transportation Department and Aviation Department seeking information about Uber’s operations and regulatory information while the ride-hailing behemoth provided rides in Austin.
