Why Waymo Is Dropping Most Patent Claims in Uber Suit

Updated on

Alphabet Inc. Chief Executive Officer Larry Page was ordered to submit to questioning by Uber Technologies Inc. in his company’s lawsuit over trade secrets for self-driving car technology.

Uber’s lawyers want to question Page in their defense against the allegations the ride-hailing company stole technology central to the development of autonomous vehicles by Alphabet’s Waymo unit. Waymo argued the deposition of Page was unnecessary and intrusive, but a San Francisco federal magistrate judge said Friday he can be questioned for as long as four hours.
