Waymo, the self-driving vehicle company spun off of Google's parent company Alphabet in 2016, scored a major win earlier this month when a federal appeals court ordered Uber to hand over secret documentation related to the two company's ongoing legal battle.
Last week, a federal circuit appeals judge ruled that Uber must hand over the due diligence report it commissioned ahead of its acquisition of self-driving truck startup Otto. Former Uber and Waymo engineer Anthony Levandowski allegedly stole more than 14,000 files before he left Waymo and started the self-driving truck company that is Otto, which was nearly immediately acquired by Uber.

Waymo believed that by obtaining the report, it would determine what Uber knows and when it did so.
