Women who alleged rape and assault by Uber drivers end their lawsuit
Ride-hailing startup Uber has settled a lawsuit that alleged brutal driver sexual assaults on two female passengers.
The terms of the settlement are confidential. By reaching a deal now, Uber avoids a trial, scheduled for March, that could have been incredibly damaging to its image. Uber declined to comment on the case, and the lawyer representing the anonymous plaintiffs didn’t respond to a request for comment.
