Uber is facing a class action lawsuit from US riders alleging assault
"In our complaint filed today against Uber, the allegations show that Uber's model of profits over safety has caused countless numbers of female riders to pay the price for Uber's shameless failure to act", the plaintiffs attorney said in a statement.
As Recode reports, the complaint states that the plaintiffs were misled to believing that Uber drivers would safely take them to their destinations, and that the company engaged in "unlawful" and "fraudulent" conduct to misrepresent the safety of such transport.
The lawsuit, which describes the details of the assaults faced by the two plaintiffs, seeks damages for plaintiffs and to force Uber to take steps to prevent assault by drivers.
A new class- action lawsuit filed in California alleges ride-hail giant Uber has created a system giving perpetrators of sexual assault, sexual harassment and physical violence access to thousands of "vulnerable victims" nationwide since it launched 2010.
Two anonymous women filed a complaint against Uber in a Northern California district court on Tuesday, with hopes of attaining class-action status on behalf of customers in the USA who were "subject to rape, sexual assault, physical violence or gender-motivated violence or harassment by their Uber driver in the last four years".
"Uber has done everything possible to continue using low-priced, woefully inadequate background checks on drivers and has failed to monitor drivers for any violent or inappropriate conduct after they are hired", the lawsuit reads. Los Angeles and San Francisco sued the company a couple of years back, alleging that Uber missed criminal records for drivers with serious crimes in their past.
