14,000+ documents downloaded from Google
Levandowski downloaded onto a work computer 14,000 documents from a database where Google’s self-driving car data was stored, Google alleges in its lawsuit. The download totaled 9.7 GBs, with 2 GBs related to LiDAR, technology Google believes is essential in bringing its self-driving cars to market. Two weeks later, Levandowski allegedly connected an SD drive to his computer for eight hours — during which time Google suspects he transferred the documents. On January 4 and 11, Google claims Levandowski downloaded more documents from Google Drive onto a personal device.
