ISSUE – Sep. 10 | Uber Is Said to Face FBI Probe as Compliance Chief Exits

Uber Technologies Inc. is under investigation by federal authorities in New York for its alleged use of a spyware program designed to undermine competition for its digital ride-hailing service, according to people familiar with the matter. The executive charged with making sure Uber follows the law, Global Head of Compliance Joseph Spiegler, resigned last week after a year and a half on the job, according to two people familiar with the matter. While Spiegler reported to the company’s top lawyer, Uber is searching for a replacement who would report directly to new Chief Executive Officer Dara Khosrowshahi, one of the people said. The ride-hailing company faces three major U.S. legal probes. [ Bloomberg ]
