April 4 An Uber executive at the center of a
high-profile legal dispute with Alphabet Inc's Waymo
self-driving-car unit has "no basis to believe" any criminal
investigation is underway over allegations of trade secret
theft, the executive's lawyer said in a court filing.
Waymo sued ride services company Uber Technologies Inc
earlier this year, alleging that a former Waymo executive,
Anthony Levandowski, downloaded over 14,000 confidential
documents before leaving the company to subsequently join Uber.
In a court filing on Tuesday, Levandowski's lawyer said the
executive was asserting his constitutional right against self
incrimination to protect himself in the event of any future
