Ousted Uber Technologies Inc. head Travis Kalanick learned early previous year that the engineer who until recently oversaw the company's driverless auto project possessed discs of information from Google, according to a court filing. About five major Uber investors forced the CEO to do so for the company continue to garner bad reputation over time.
His resignation came barely seven days after Uber CEO Travis Kalanick announced that he will take an indefinite leave of absence.

Kalanick's resignation shocked many in Silicon Valley who viewed his position as secure, since he held plenty of Uber's stock, and had built the ride-hailing service into a almost $70-billion company in just eight years.
