Axios reports a group of Uber (Private:UBER) investors asked Benchmark Capital to step down from the board of directors after the firm filed a lawsuit against former CEO Travis Kalanick.
The request, signed by investors including Shervin Pishevar of Sherpa Capital and Maverick’s Adam Leber, was circulated through an email petition and claims that Benchmark’s suit only complicates the search for a new CEO even further.
