Levandowski faces more trade secret allegations-in lawsuit filed by nanny

Anthony Levandowski Former Uber engineer Anthony Levandowski Otto

Erika Wong, who says she cared for Anthony Levandowski's two children from December 2016 to June 2017, filed a lawsuit in California this month accusing him of breaking a long list of employment laws.

Levandowski has been at the center of an explosive lawsuit between Uber and Waymo in which Alphabet-owned driverless auto company Waymo claims that Uber stole trade secrets.

The engineer at the heart of the upcoming Waymo vs Uber trial is facing dramatic new allegations of commercial wrongdoing, this time from a former nanny. The complaint alleges the failure to pay wages, labor and health code violations, and the intentional infliction of emotional distress, among other things.

Levandowski had previously worked at Google where he ran the self-driving program there (the program was later spun out into a standalone company, Waymo) before leaving to work at Uber, and is accused of stealing approximately 14,000 documents from Waymo.

In a statement release to Wired, Levandowski's spokesperson dismissed Wong's claims, commenting: "On January 5th, a frivolous lawsuit was filed against Anthony Levandowski in US District Court".

In her complaint, Wong alleges that Levandowski was paying a Tesla engineer for updates on its electric truck program, selling microchips overseas, and creating new startups using stolen trade secrets. And Wong suggests that Levandowski was involved in the formation of a number of startups including Argo AI and JingChi Corporation, though both told Wired that wasn't the case.
