In setback for Uber, judge says drivers can pursue lawsuit as a group

James Niccolai | Sept. 2, 2015
A judge has granted "class action" status to drivers in a lawsuit against Uber in California.

The class to be represented in the case includes any UberBlack, UberX and UberSUV drivers who have driven for Uber in California since August 2009 and who didn't waive their right to class-action arbitration.

The plaintiffs who filed the lawsuit say that could be as many as 160,000 drivers, but Uber says it will be significantly fewer. Drivers who joined after June last year, for example, need to have opted out of an arbitration clause in their contract to be eligible.
