Two Women File Suit Against Uber Over Alleged Assaults

Posted on October 9, 2015

Two women, including one in Boston, are accusing Uber of neglect and fraud after they were allegedly sexually assaulted by Uber drivers in two separate incidents, according to a federal lawsuit filed Thursday in Northern California.

In the lawsuit, two Jane Does accuse the San Francisco company of misleading women by regularly marketing the company as a safe transportation option, then failing to appropriately screen their drivers to make sure female passengers are safe.
