Meanwhile, Uber said it has taken the allegations seriously and would review the matter carefully. Additionally, Uber and Levandowski are also yet to respond to Waymo's claims about the former Google employee's act of theft in downloading the 9.7 GB worth of confidential files using the company-provided computer.

Uber acquired self-driving startup Otto past year for $680 million.

Waymo's lawsuit seeks damages from Uber, along with an injunction against the company, stopping it from unfair competitive practices. Google invested $258 million in Uber, but its mapping subsidiary Waze is now expanding a carpooling service that could lure riders away from Uber. Otto was then bought by Uber just a few months from the former's founding.

Waymo said stealing that is like "stealing a secret recipe from a beverage company". He later wiped and reformatted the laptop in an attempt to erase forensic fingerprints.
