Benchmark’s debatable, explosive lawsuit against Travis Kalanick is formally history.

A pass judgement on on Thursday completely dismissed the mission firm’s case against the previous Uber CEO following Benchmark’s agreement to disregard the swimsuit. That ends a messy criminal entanglement that was once a number one a part of Benchmark’s try over the closing six months to marginalize Kalanick. It was once Benchmark that led his ouster from the CEO chair at Uber.

Benchmark had signaled that it deliberate to drop the swimsuit as soon as Uber enacted a chain of governance reforms that disempowered both Kalanick and Benchmark. Those adjustments took effect on Jan. 18 — the similar day that Benchmark first moved to push aside its suit, in step with the filing.

“it is hereby stipulated and agreed, by means of and amongst Benchmark, Kalanick and Uber, through their undersigned recommend,” wrote Delaware Courtroom of Chancery Judge Sam Glasscock III in his order, “that this Action and the claims asserted therein are brushed aside with prejudice, and that every birthday celebration shall bear its or his personal prices, charges and bills.”

Kalanick succeeded final summer time in having the Delaware case despatched to arbitration, however then the arbitration process crawled extraordinarily slowly. The governance adjustments allowed all sides to less litigiously clear the plate for Kalanick’s successor.

Still, one has to ask: Might those governance adjustments have took place if Benchmark hadn’t sued in the first place?
