Could Uber have cut a check and apologized to Waymo?

Top of the Order:  

An Expensive (Proposed) Apology: Is it possible that the ongoing lawsuit between Alphabet’s Waymo self-driving car business and Uber could have been settled for the price of an apology? Oh, and $1 billion, too?

It might have come to that, according to a report from Reuters citing “sources familiar with the matter.”

As you may know, Waymo and Uber are engaged in a lawsuit over self-driving technology. Waymo sued Uber back in February, alleging that former Waymo engineer Anthony Levandowski took more than 14,000 confidential company files with him when he left Waymo to start Otto, a self-driving truck company. Uber bought Otto not long after Levandowski started the company and has denied any wrongdoing against Waymo.
