Uber Investor Files Lawsuit After Being Accused of Rape in London Penthouse

Shervin Pishevar, a prominent Silicon Valley venture capitalist and an early investor of Uber, is suing Definers Public Affairs and two of its executives on Monday, accusing them of covert smear campaign against him.

In the lawsuit filed in a California court, Pishevar alleges that the Republican-led research firm based in San Francisco spread false and disparaging information about him, including being a Russian government agent and that he paid money to settle a claim for sexual assault in London.
