LA Times: Judge allows class action against Uber
February 23, 2018
“Without this decision, it would have likely been the end of the road for drivers seeking to recover for Uber’s breach,” said Paul B. Maslo, a partner at law firm Napoli Shkolnik and lead counsel for the drivers.
The lawsuit seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial. The breach of contract lawsuit, filed in May in U.S. District Court in San Francisco, alleges that when Uber implemented a feature called “upfront pricing” in August 2016, it didn’t pay drivers their fair share.
