Uber Technologies Inc. was sued for negligence hours after it disclosed that customers and drivers’ personal data was hacked over a year ago.

"Uber failed to implement and maintain reasonable security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature and scope of the information compromised in the data breach," according to the complaint filed Tuesday in federal court in Los Angeles.
