One of the most prominent trade secret cases in recent years has come to a close as Anthony Levandowski was sentenced to 18 months in prison but his incarceration will be delayed until after the COVID-19 pandemic is over and then he will serve his full sentence.
Levandowski had been a key engineer at Google’s (GOOG, GOOGL) Waymo before starting his own self-driving truck company called Otto and marketing his product. Eventually bought by Uber Technologies (NYSE:UBER), where he became the head of its self driving unit, but Levandowski eventually pleaded guilty to taking thousands of files from his former employer when he left in 2016.
