Uber taxi driver 'rapes woman in India'
Uber rape allegation: Delhi bans all unregistered internet taxi firms
City’s transport department rules that only six registered radio taxi companies will be allowed to operate in Indian capital
Uber does seems to be expanding aggressively and in some cases, disregards the local law. Regardless how dated a law may be or how unfair the system may seem to new entrants, breaking the law does not seems like what a responsible company should be doing.
Well said, in my cases Uber does indeed try to aggressively expand and yes, the law should be adhered to.
Uber faces legal action in US court over India rape allegations
A woman allegedly raped by an Uber driver in India plans to take legal action against the taxi aggregator in a US court claiming negligence.
The action will centre on Uber's lax background checks on drivers and the woman has secured the services of well-known New York lawyer Douglas Wigdor.
Wigdor previously represented hotel maid Nafissatou Diallo, who gained a million dollar settlement from former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn over an alleged sexual assault.
Wigdor has asked for US jurisdiction in the case as Uber's company policy pertaining to driver conduct was made in the US.
