ORDER RE CASE
UBER TECHNOLOGIES, INC., et al.,
The Court is concerned that defendants may eventually wish to waive some claims of
privilege in order to bolster their defense — for example, by explaining precautions they may
have taken at the time of Otto’s acquisition to prevent Waymo’s confidential files from
influencing defendants’ LiDAR research and development. To prevent discovery prejudice and
waste of resources, defendants shall file a written statement by JUNE 1 AT NOON setting forth
any waiver of privilege on pain of preclusion thereafter. Waymo may file a response by JUNE 5
This issue shall be discussed at the case management conference, which remains set
for June 7 at 8:00 a.m. This is without prejudice to any argument that certain waivers of
privilege are already too late to avoid discovery prejudice, or that certain claims of privilege
should never have been asserted in the first place.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: May 15, 2017.
