- Waymo puts Uber lawyers in hot seat over trade-secret theft
By Joel Rosenblatt - Wednesday Jul 26, 2017
Waymo claims Uber Technologies Inc. had an accomplice in the theft of invaluable driverless technology trade secrets — the ride-hailing giant’s own lawyers.Waymo is aiming to use those details to buttress its claims Uber colluded with Levandowski to steal prized technology in the heated race to commercialize autonomous vehicles.Uber contends Waymo is mischaracterizing the actions of its outside lawyers, who it says did the right thing by hiring cyberforensics firm Stroz Friedberg to quarantine any sensitive information Levandowski had from Waymo or Google — and wall it off from Uber — during the due-diligence vetting of the Ottomotto acquisition.“MoFo and Stroz were retained for the very purpose of preventing any violation of intellectual property rights in connection with Uber’s acquisition of Ottomotto, and were contractually bound not to (and did not) disclose to Uber any confidential or proprietary Waymo information,” Uber argued in a court filing.In recent weeks, lawyers at another firm representing Uber — Boies, Schiller & Flexner — have taken on a more prominent role drafting court filings and representing the company in hearings.Waymo has also accused Stroz and Morrison of violating court orders to turn over proprietary information, including files from the law firm’s representation of Levandowski in arbitration proceedings brought by Google last year.Haag held her post as Northern California’s top prosecutor from 2010 to 2015 under President Barack Obama, leading one of the largest regional outposts of the Justice Department and one of the most active in white-collar prosecutions.

- Agency moves to allow class-action suits against financial firms
By Jessica Silver-Greenberg and Michael Corkery - Monday Jul 10, 2017
The nation’s consumer watchdog is adopting a rule that would pry open the courtroom doors for millions of Americans, restoring their right to bring class-action lawsuits against financial firms.Under Monday’s Consumer Financial Protection Bureau rule, banks and credit card companies could no longer force customers into arbitration and block them from banding together to file a class-action suit.More immediately, its adoption is almost certain to set off a political firestorm in Washington, where both the administration of President Trump and House Republicans have pushed to rein in the consumer finance agency as part of a broader effort to lighten regulation on the financial industry.Under the Congressional Review Act — a 1996 law that had been rarely used before the current Congress employed it to reverse 14 rules from the Obama administration — lawmakers have 60 legislative days to overturn the rule blocking mandatory arbitration.Across the country, judges, prosecutors and regulators have decried arbitration clauses for allowing corporations to circumvent the courts and for taking away the only tools citizens have to fight illegal or deceitful business practices.The rule is one of the signature efforts of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which was created in 2010 as part of the Dodd-Frank regulatory overhaul to safeguard the rights of millions of Americans in the aftermath of the mortgage crisis.At a time when Dodd-Frank has come under attack, the arbitration initiative from the consumer finance agency — which operates independently from the Trump administration — is a provocative stand against the prevailing political tide in Washington.The rule will unwind a series of brazen legal maneuvers undertaken by major U.S. companies to block customers from going to court to fight potentially harmful business practices.Over decades, financial institutions, led by credit card companies, figured out a way to use the fine print of their contracts to force consumers into private arbitration, a secretive process where borrowers have to go up on their own against powerful companies with deep pockets.The rule from the bureau would apply only to the financial companies regulated by the agency and would not touch arbitration clauses buried in the fine print of nursing homes or employment contracts.Recognizing that problem, the federal agency that controls more than $1 trillion in Medicare and Medicaid funding proposed a rule in September that would have barred any nursing home that gets federal funding from requiring that residents resolve disputes in arbitration.
