Los Angeles women sue Uber, saying it failed to warn them of sexual assaults by fake Uber drivers

Three Los Angeles County women who say they were sexually assaulted by predators who posed as Uber drivers filed a lawsuit against Uber Technologies on Friday alleging the ride-hailing service didn’t do enough to protect them.

The women, who are not named in the lawsuit, allege Uber was aware that violent individuals prey on women by masquerading as legitimate drivers while waiting outside popular nightclubs and bars in Los Angeles. However, the women allege the Bay Area company did not warn its customers and failed to implement technology that could make the experience safer, according to the lawsuit.
