Passenger’s Vicarious Liability Claims Proceed Against Uber Following Alleged Assault by Driver

“Here, based on the facts alleged in the Complaint, Micah was at the address as part of his business driving for Uber and assaulted Plaintiff to coerce payment of a debt owed to Uber; therefore, a reasonable jury could determine that … the assault was in furtherance of Uber’s business,” U.S. District Judge Rossie D. Alston Jr. said, denying Uber’s motion to dismiss on the plaintiff’s vicarious liability claims.
