Let's go live to the Uber-Waymo legal war – and see what's happening

That's the biggest "What if" i've ever seen.

Judge Alsup : "What if it turns out that Uber is totally innocent?," he asked, and the company simply paid for a gifted engineer with no idea he was downloading documents?

I understand salaries in the tech field are rather high, but paying $250million, even for a gifted engineer, is rather exhorbitant.

Of course it's not his final Judgment just a little musing.

The evidence (from the article) against Uber/Waymo appears compelling. Why on earth do court cases take so long? Yes, yes, i know, billable hours. Rounded up from units of 10 secs each.

If i were the Judge the case would be over before lunch.
