This demand came after the company was embroiled in months of scandals — from allegations of a toxic work culture, to a major lawsuit over its autonomous car technology.
Benchmark then sued Kalanick earlier this month, claiming he was interfering with the search for a new CEO and had a secret agenda of getting himself reinstated.
Conduct so completely at odds with Benchmark's fiduciary duty cannot be left unanswered, particularly at this terrible time for Mr. Kalanick and his family.
We all owe a huge debt to Travis and his team for their tireless work in imagining, creating, and building Uber.
Pishevar has remained in Kalanick's corner and says he has filed a motion to intervene in that lawsuit, along with fellow investor Steve Russell.
