Waymo expert backing $1.9 billion Uber damages bid is booted by judge
Friday, 3 November 2017 Waymo’s bid to recover $1.86 billion in a trade secrets case against Uber Technologies is in jeopardy as a federal judge cut the company’s damages expert from the case, one month before a trial over driverless technology. The decision leaves the Alphabet Inc. unit without an outside source to justify why it deserves that startling amount in an industry that hasn’t been commercialized or generated revenue for either company. “The exclusion of Waymo’s expert is devastating for Waymo’s lofty damages claims,” Janelle Waack, an intellectual property lawyer, said in an email, adding that the ruling may be critical enough for Waymo to appeal.
