Jane Doe Alleging Sexual Assault By Driver Sued Uber Which Says Owed No Duty of Care

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 30 – A woman who took an Uber from New York City to Rye Brook but says she was sexually assaulted by the driver has sued Uber, as Jane Doe.         

     On September 8 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Lewis J. Liman held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

 The complaint says "Uber heavily targets young, single women in its advertising with promises of 'safe' transportation."

 It says the assault took place on June 7-8, 2018; she nodded off in the car and was awoken by a touch, the driver had his hand up her skirt. 

   The lawyer for Uber said it will take time to unseal the criminal case, but she said the driver Iqbal Hussain - a "non-party" -- was acquitted and is not in state custody.

  Now on September 30, this: Uber has filed a motion to dismiss, asserting among other things that it "owed no duty of care." Oh.

The case is Doe v. Uber Technologies, Inc., 20-cv-8446 (Liman)
