Wigdor LLP currently represents two women who were allegedly sexually assaulted by their Uber drivers. The firm filed a lawsuit on behalf of these two women on October 8, 2015 in the Northern District of California. As alleged in the Complaint, during an Uber ride in Boston, Massachusetts on February 8, 2015, Jane Doe 1 was locked in her Uber driver’s car against her will, driven off-route, held captive and sexually assaulted before she managed to escape. The Complaint further asserts that on August 9, 2015 in Charleston, South Carolina, Jane Doe 2 was similarly locked in an Uber driver’s car, driven off-route, held captive and raped, before she was able to run to a nearby highway, and in an effort to flag a vehicle for help, was hit by a car. The Complaint seeks damages for negligent hiring, supervision and retention, fraud, false imprisonment, emotional distress, assault and battery on behalf of Jane Doe 1 and Jane Doe 2.
