Pot meet kettle: Uber investors are now battling over leaking

Oh here, just read.

Uber investor Shervin Pishevar, who is trying to make other Uber investor Benchmark’s life a holy hell, has filed yet another legal bullet today, demanding company paperwork on whether the Silicon Valley venture firm leaked confidential information.

Ironies pile on top of ironies here, don’t they?

A Rule 220 demand, which you can read below, asks that Pishevar and his gang — who are on the side of Benchmark foe and ousted Uber CEO Travis Kalanick — be allowed to look at some of Uber’s records. They are fishing around to find out whether Benchmark leaked anything juicy, such as parts of a report by former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder into allegations of sexism and sexual harassment at the company.

That the whole point of that investigation — trying to get rid of a management that allowed that kind of environment to exist in the first place — is apparently not the point anymore (it is the only point, by the way). Instead, more legal wrangling by rich men to push around other rich men, in which Uber suffer the consequences.

But what do I know?

Yesterday, Pishevar, who had previously only lobbed one pissy letter at Benchmark that demanded they step down from the board of Uber, sent across a legal bomb. He is seeking to intervene in the lawsuit between Benchmark and Kalanick and wants all kinds of stuff to happen.

Today, he wants more, so read:
