Uber Faces Lawsuit by Women for Sexual Assault Claims

Updated on

Uber Technologies Inc. could be sued by more than 500 women across the US who claim to have been assaulted by drivers on the platform. 

A complaint filed Wednesday by Slater Slater Schulman LLP in San Francisco, alleges women were “kidnapped, sexually assaulted, sexually battered, raped, falsely imprisoned, stalked, harassed or otherwise attacked” in their rides. It claims Uber has known about the sexual misconduct by some of the drivers, including rape, since 2014. The law firm said it has about 550 clients with claims against Uber and is actively investigating at least 150 more cases.
