Benchmark is suing former Uber CEO Travis Kalanick for mismanagement.

Don’t say we didn’t warn you, part 2. If the CEO needs to be replaced, he needs to leave the board and the independent directors need to evaluate themselves to make sure they are not overly beholden to him, especially when he’s the founder.

Barely two months after losing his post amid the sexual-harassment and gender-discrimination scandals engulfing his company, Kalanick is being sued by one of Uber’s largest early investors, Benchmark Capital. The lawsuit accuses Kalanick of conniving to “entrench himself on Uber’s Board of Directors and increase his power over Uber for his own selfish ends.”“Kalanick’s overarching objective is to pack Uber’s Board with loyal allies in an effort to insulate his prior conduct from scrutiny and clear the path for his eventual return as CEO—all to the detriment of Uber’s stockholders, employees, driver-partners, and customers,” the lawsuit continues.
