On March 19, 2020, Levandowski agreed to plead guilty to one of the thirty-three charges brought against him by the Department of Justice. Initially charged with stealing documents with trade secrets, technical specifications and Lidar design, Levandowski pleaded guilty to uploading an internal tracking document called “Driver TL Weekly – Q4 2015,” a table of team targets, project metrics, and weekly updates that Levandowski`s team can access on an unsecured Google Drive. Levandowski admitted to accessing the document about a month after leaving Google in February 2016.    The Alphabet unit sued Levandowski and Lior Ron, who ran Uber`s trucking business, for infringement and separation agreements, including convincing many Google employees to join them in Uber`s concurrent program after leaving Google in January 2016. Ron compared the $9.7 million verdict against him in February, which was covered by Uber. The ride-sharing company should not do the same for Levandowski. Uber said it never received any benefits from Levandowski as part of the compensation deal and had nothing to give back to him because of the resignation statement, the company said in the court file. The “MIA Terms and Conditions” have been updated to respond to changes in the department`s legislation and policy. “MIA Call Agreement” and “Inter-MIA Agreement” have been updated to support changes to the updated MIA Terms and Conditions. The MIA Data Protection Protocol is a new document that has been put in place to help health authorities comply with the General Data Protection Regulation. “Google and Lior Ron have entered into a transaction agreement that decides Ron`s total liability,” Uber said in its March 2, 2020 annual report.
“While Uber and Levandowski are parties to a compensation agreement, the question of whether Uber is ultimately liable for such compensation is subject to a dispute between the company and Levandowski. The final resolution to the case could result in a potential loss of up to $64 million or more (depending on the interest incurred) beyond the accumulated amount. Uber does not participate in any of these arbitrations. Anthony Levandowski, a former Star Silicon Valley engineer whose actions sparked a high-level legal battle between Alphabets Waymo and Uber, has been ordered by a California court to pay $179 million to Google for violating the terms of his contract and separation agreement with the company. He then applied for insolvency protection after the publication of the judgment. It is unclear whether Mr Levandowski will have to pay, given that his employment contract with Uber states that he has been compensated. . . .
