Uber Hired Investigators To Impersonate Journalists

These allegation can't be real. Seriously, how stupid would you have to be to hire investigators to impersonate journalists just to get more information about the plaintiff and his lawyer after they filed this case? Even Uber has to be smarter than that. Right?

US District Judge Jed Rakoff is also trying to figure out whether Uber covered up using a private investigator in order to gather more information about Meyer and his lawyer after they filed the case. "Plaintiff contended, for instance, that an individual from Ergo [private investigation company] contacted professional colleagues of plaintiff's counsel Mr. Schmidt and, in order to gain access to information about Mr. Schmidt, falsely stated that he was compiling a profile of up-and-coming labor lawyers in the United States," Judge Rakoff wrote.
