Uber exec appeals for Fifth Amendment shield in Waymo row

A California federal judge ruled Uber Technologies Inc. cannot invoke the Fifth Amendment on behalf of Anthony Levandowski, who allegedly stole trade secrets from Waymo LLC and used them to start Uber’s self-driving car division, he announced he would file a Ninth Circuit appeal as an intervenor.  Levandowski’s appeal itself wasn’t immediately available, but he filed a notice with the district court.  It followed an order from U.S. District Judge William Alsup, ruling Levandowski couldn’t use his Fifth Amendment right to not incriminate himself to prevent discovery in a case in which he isn’t named as a defendant.
