Uber threatens to fire Levandowski

|By:, SA News Editor

UBER has threatened to fire the man at the center of its legal battle with Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL), telling its top driverless technology engineer to either deny taking files from his former employer or turn them over.

Anthony Levandowski is accused of downloaded 14,000 confidential files before he left the company to launch his own self-driving startup, Otto, that was acquired by Uber for $680M.
