Anthony Levandowski ordered to pay $179 million to Google

Anthony Levandowski, engineer and autonomous vehicle startup founder who was at the center of a trade secrets lawsuit between Uber and Waymo, has been ordered to pay $179 million

Levandowski & Lior Ron had engaged in unfair competition and breached their contract with Google when they left the company to start a rival autonomous vehicle company focused on trucking, called Otto. Uber acquired Otto in 2017.

Now, Levandowski filed today for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, stating that the presumptive $179M debt quite exceeeds his assets, which he estimates at somewhere between $50M and $100M.
