The U.S. Attorney's office for Northern California confirmed the criminal probe into Uber Technologies Inc. in a court filing made public Wednesday. Typically, the Justice Department will not discuss criminal investigations, and the court filing does not describe the nature of the investigation, the targets, or specific offenses targeted by the probe. Dated Nov. 22, the filing is a letter from Acting U.S. Attorney for Northern California Alex Tse to judge William Alsup, who is presiding over a lawsuit Alphabet Inc. subsidiary Waymo filed against Uber. The suit is over self driving car technology that Waymo accuses an ex-Uber employee of stealing and using in Uber's self-driving effort. The U.S. Attorney communication to Alsup describes what another ex-Uber employee, Richard Jacobs, told investigators about Uber's use of devices which "store and transmit information they wished to separate from Uber's official systems." Jacobs, in the interview with investigators, said that he believed trade secrets stored on these devices wouldn't be discovered in "a review of Uber's systems," according to the letter from Tse. Jacobs himself wrote a letter to Uber's general counsel during his severance negotiations with Uber outlining the allegations; Jacobs' letter was consistent with what he told investigators, according to the court filing. The revelations contained in the Jacobs letter came to light after federal prosecutors informed Alsup of its existence days before the Waymo-Uber litigation was set to begin trial. As as a result, Alsup has delayed the trial until 2018 and decided to make the Jacobs letter public. Pending additional legal machinations, the Jacobs letter will be entered into the record Dec. 15.
