McKnight et al. v. Uber Technologies, Inc. et al.
Case No. 3:14-cv-05615-JST
If you used Uber in the U.S. and paid a Safe Rides Fee, you may be entitled to a payment from a class action Settlement.
A federal court authorized this Settlement website.
A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit regarding whether Uber Technologies, Inc. and Rasier, LLC (collectively, "Uber" or Defendants) made misrepresentations about the “Safe Rides Fee,” safety measures, and the background check process for potential drivers. Uber denies the allegations in the lawsuit, and the Court has not decided who is right.
The Settlement requires Uber to make certain changes to how it advertises background checks and certain fees. Additionally, the Settlement will result in the creation of a $32,500,000 Settlement Fund to be paid to eligible users of Uber, called “Class Members” (described in FAQ 5).
There are three methods to receive payment of your share of the Settlement Fund. If you do nothing, the default method (Option 1, the “Uber Rider Account” option) will result in payment to your Uber account, and will be paid toward your next Uber ride in the United States, after the payment is made. Option 2 (the “PayPal Account” option) will result in payment to your PayPal Account. Option 3 (the “eCheck” option) will result in payment by an electronic check that will be emailed to you. eChecks are available for deposit in U.S. financial institutions only. For Options 2 and 3, you must have submitted a valid Payment Election Form by January 8, 2018. If you no longer have an Uber account and did not submit a Payment Election Form by the deadline, a single attempt will be made to pay your Settlement Share (less the average cost of distributing the Settlement Share) to a default U.S. credit card, U.S. debit card, PayPal account, or other payment method associated with your Uber account.
Your legal rights are affected whether you act or do not act. Read this Settlement website carefully.
