"Inside the courtroom in Waymo v. Uber"

Earlier this year, Google and Uber met in court to battle it out over eight trade secrets involving laser-based self-driving car technology. Sarah Jeong covered the trial from the courtroom. The companies reached a surprise settlement only a week into the trial. What happened in Waymo v. Uber and what does it mean for the future of intellectual property litigation and the self-driving car market?
