A class action lawsuit has been settled in the case of Uber taxi cab service. Plaintiffs allege that Uber made it seem like a 20% charge it made would be given to the driver as a tip, when actually the charge was partially given to Uber itself.
Settlement has been reached in this case. You may be entitled to money!
Check your email! All individuals who received Uber’s e-mail with the representation that the 20% charge would be gratuity only, who then arranged and paid for taxi rides through Uber’s service from April 20, 2012 to March 25, 2013.
This Lawsuit only relates to one of Uber’s ride request options: uberTAXI. This Lawsuit does not relate to UberBlack, uberX, or any other of Uber’s ride request options.
How much will each class member get? The Settlement provides that Defendant will pay each Class Member an amount equal to 40% of the charges.
