Trip-hailing application Uber has missing one more round in its struggle with some drivers who submitted a course-action lawsuit against it.
In August, US District Judge Edward Chen dominated that motorists should be permitted to form a class. Uber appealed that ruling straight to the US Courtroom of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, but in a selection handed down yesterday, the appeals court declined to take up the circumstance. The ruling does not suggest that Uber can not challenge Chen’s course certification at a afterwards time, but the company will first have to fully litigate its scenario.
That implies that Uber could well have to make its case to a jury in Chen’s courtroom. He has scheduled a trial for June 2016, in accordance to a report in Reuters. “We seem forward to presenting the facts about how drivers use Uber with comprehensive overall flexibility and control over their perform to a jury,” Uber attorney Theodore Boutrous told the information service.
