Uber Technologies Inc.’s arbitration agreements were largely ruled by an appeals court to be valid and enforceable in a blow to driver efforts to secure the benefits and protections of employees in California.

The decision is the first by a federal appellate court on whether Uber can require drivers to take any disputes to private arbitration, where the company can fight them one-on-one.

    I would like to know the 3 gov employees that over ruled judge Chens decition. This by far is an example of whats happening to this country. Uber spending $$$$$ to lobby for their benefit. So we can at least say that california lost close to 500 million last year from ubers independant contractors. These type of judges need not to be serving the united states of america..... they dont follow the law. What a shame.. regardless uber is in a nose dive and cant recover... its a failed business model with 2016 so far loosing 1.2 billion
