Portland, Oregon to demand controversial Uber software tool


The Portland subpoena does not indicate what criminal laws are at issue in the probe. Likewise, Uber’s grand jury subpoena does not list any federal statutes that may have been violated, a source familiar with the document said.

A subpoena from a grand jury is a request for documents or testimony concerning a potential crime. It does not, in itself, indicate wrongdoing or mean charges will be brought.

In a statement, Saltzman said the city supports the federal investigation.
