Former Uber CEO Travis Kalanick plans to dispute a claim by Benchmark Capital in a lawsuit filed Thursday that he agreed in June to give up the right to unilaterally name two new directors to the board, according to a person familiar with the situation.

And he may soon try and name directors to the board without the approval of existing directors, the person says, although Benchmark has asked the court for an injunction to prevent Mr. Kalanick from doing so.
