Judge Says Uber May Have Engaged In Criminal Conduct

Laws? What laws? If we have learned anything from Uber by now it is that the company does whatever the hell it wants and then asks permission later (usually after being compelled by the courts).

A federal judge on Monday banned Uber Technologies Inc and its Chief Executive Travis Kalanick from using information from a background check on a passenger bringing a price-fixing lawsuit, saying the investigative firm conducting the probe may have engaged in criminal conduct. "The court finds perfectly appropriate an order enjoining defendants from making use of the fruits of their own troubling conduct," Rakoff wrote. "The court cannot help but be troubled by this whole dismal incident."
