However, he did say that Uber acquired private code from an overseas competitor, and that Uber tried to identify employees at competitive companies who might leak to them.

An Uber representative on Tuesday referred to an earlier company statement, which said Uber "has been waiting for its day in court for quite some time now" and was keen to have a jury hear the merits of the case.

Last Wednesday, U.S. District Judge William Alsup received a letter from the acting U.S. attorney for the Northern District of California investigating allegations into anticompetitive behavior at the ride-hailing company, according to court filings.

Waymo's intellectual property lawsuit against Uber is being further delayed from going to trial after new testimony called into question whether Uber withheld key evidence.

Waymo sued Uber, saying that they stole trade secrets about self-driving auto technology.

Poes Garden came under the siege of government agencies for the first time in 20 years on Friday night after the I-T raids. Terming the raids "painful", he said Dinakaran's attack on Palaniswami and Panneerselvam was for political gains.

Who said the tree was worth the extra cost. "If they're going to leave it up until Christmas, that's quite a span", he said. Trees can only be kept inside for a few days and must then be planted which may not work in our area.

Jacobs said he learned of this activity through discussions at Uber with his manager and other colleagues.

Uber has denied the allegations of theft.

The trial was originally scheduled to begin on December 4, but Waymo filed a last-minute motion to postpone on Monday.

Waymo is alleging that Uber has been building its own fleet of self-driving cars by using trade secrets taken by former Waymo engineer Anthony Levandowski.
