Entrepreneur sues Uber over claims of stealing trade secrets

Kevin Halpern founded Celluride Wireless, Inc., in 2002 with the aim of matching limousine and black-car drivers to passenger clients through mobile technology. Over a decade later, he is filing a lawsuit against Uber for allegedly stealing trade secrets to create the now $41 billion company, according to the Recorder on May 14.

The lawsuit names Uber chief executive officer Travis Kalanick, Uber co-founder Garrett Camp, and other early Uber investors. The lawsuit alleges that Uber took the concept directly from Celluride.

Halpern is seeking $1 billion in lost profits, as well as additional punitive damages. Uber has so far denied the claim.
