LOS ANGELES, Nov. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — On Tuesday, November 21, 2017, Bobby Saadian and Colin Jones of Wilshire Law Firm filed a proposed class action lawsuit in federal court, on behalf of their client, Flores, against Uber Technologies, Inc. and its subsidiaries Rasier, LLC and Rasier-CA, LLC.
The complaint alleges that Uber violated California constitutional laws, unfair competition laws; that Uber engaged in fraudulent, deceptive business practices, constitutional invasion of privacy, and other violations. Uber acted negligently, when it failed to protect personal and financial data, from drivers and passengers, resulting in a data breach, which started back in October 2016.
Reportedly, the information stolen by hackers ended up on the black market, while Uber kept quiet about the facts. Therefore, putting the app users at a greater risk of identity theft, fraud, and all the long-term negative consequences associated with being the victim of a data breach.
The proposed class action has been filed to put an end to Uber’s misconduct, and to obtain fair compensation for those, whose privacy rights have been violated, as a result of Uber’s negligence.
Uber had a duty to protect personal and financial information from drivers and passengers. As well, a responsibility to implement security protocols to prevent hackers from stealing this information. Wilshire Law Firm has received several complaints against Uber regarding this data breach.
