SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Lyft and its former chief operating officer Travis VanderZanden have settled litigation in California, court filings show, in which Lyft accused VanderZanden of breaking his confidentiality pledges when he went to work for rival ride service Uber.

A Lyft spokesman confirmed the settlement on Monday but declined to disclose details.

Uber also withdrew a subpoena on Monday in separate litigation over a data breach at Uber, which had targeted an Internet address assigned to Lyft's chief technology officer, according to a court filing.

An Uber representative could not immediately be reached for comment.
