Defendants. / 14 15 ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE RE SAMEER KSHIRSAGAR UBER TECHNOLOGIES, INC., et al., Tentatively, the Court believes counsel for defendants should be allowed to show 16 Sameer Kshirsagar any files he either drafted or allegedly downloaded from plaintiff Waymo 17 LLC, so long as Kshirsagar is not given copies of such files to keep and agrees not to use the 18 contents thereof for any purpose other than the preparation of the defense in this case. This 19 would apply only to circumstances where defense counsel genuinely believes that showing 20 confidential material to Kshirsagar is essential to prepare the defense. If it is really true that 21 Waymo has objected to the foregoing disclosure, then Waymo must SHOW CAUSE BY 22 TOMORROW AT NOON why such disclosure should not be allowed. Waymo should remember 23 that defendants deserve to present their defense, and if either side frustrates the other’s ability to 24 prepare, the Court may have to adjust the case schedule. 25 26 IT IS SO ORDERED. 27 28 Dated: March 23, 2017. WILLIAM ALSUP UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
