Uber Files Motion To Limit Potential Class Action Suit

Anyone want to guess the outcome of this motion? With the way things have been going lately for Uber, I'm going to say the courts will rule against them.

The ride-hailing company is being sued by three former drivers who claim they should've been classified as employees rather than independent contractors. The drivers' lawyer, Shannon Liss-Riordan, has been seeking class action status for this suit on behalf of 160,000 drivers. But Uber filed a 52-page motion on Thursday seeking to limit the case to just the three drivers. The company said these drivers don't adequately represent most Uber drivers.
