We’ve just received the following statement from former Uber CEO Travis Kalanick about the Uber-Benchmark lawsuit getting sent into arbitration.
“Mr. Kalanick is pleased that the court has ruled in his favor today and remains confident that he will prevail in the arbitration process. Benchmark’s false allegations are wholly without merit and have unnecessarily harmed Uber and its shareholders.”
Shervin Pishevar’s team also provided a statement.
“We are pleased with his honor’s decision sending the matter to arbitration. As the court recognized, this is a bilateral dispute between Benchmark and Travis Kalanick. As the court also recognized this matter should have been brought, if at all, in arbitration. We continue to believe that Benchmark filed this public lawsuit to vilify Travis Kalanick in the court of public opinion.
Now that the matter, has been ordered to arbitration, and with the appointment Of the CEO, We look forward to this company achieving even greater success.”
