Complete the Code
1 - Lyft’s CEO sued Uber for allegedly and on multiple occasions sending escorts to his private home, as a supposed retaliation and intimidation tactic against Lyft’s then-expansion into New York City, which was settled for $2M.
2 - An antitrust lawsuit was filed against Uber by a passenger claiming collusion with drivers to raise prices, which later got dramatic when Uber privately investigated said passenger using “fraudulent and arguably criminal conduct”.
3 - A former Uber driver filed a lawsuit against Uber regarding its star rating system, which the plaintiff claims disproportionately leads to the firing of people who are not white or who speak with accents.
4 - As recently as August, California's labor commissioner is once again suing Uber and Lyft, claiming the companies are stealing wages from drivers by "willfully misclassifying" them as contractors instead of employees.
