Reading between the lines, (in my opinion) Alphabet is implying that Mr Levandowski arranged with Uber to:

    Steal LiDAR and other self-driving component designs from Waymo

    Start Otto as a plausible corporate vehicle for developing the self-driving technology

    Acquire Otto for $680 million

    Below, I’ll present the timeline of events, my interpretation, and some speculation on a possible (bad) outcome for Uber. The timeline references section numbers from Waymo’s amended filing, so you can read the full context yourself. You can also read the original filing.
