‘Waymo sought $1 bn in dam­ages from Uber’


San Fran­cisco: Al­pha­bet Inc.’s Waymo sought at least $1 bil­lion in dam­ages and a pub­lic apol­ogy from Uber Tech­nolo­gies Inc. as con­di­tions for settling its high-pro­file trade se­cret law­suit against the ride-ser­vices com­pany, peo­ple fa­mil­iar with the pro­posal told Reuters. The Waymo self-driv­ing car unit also asked that an in­de­pen­dent mon­i­tor be ap­pointed to en­sure Uber does not use Waymo tech­nol­ogy in the fu­ture, the peo­ple said. Uber re­jected those terms as non-starters, said the peo­ple. The pre­cise dol­lar amount re­quested by Waymo and the ex­act time the of­fer was made could not be learned. REUTERS
