The district attorneys of San Francisco and Los Angeles Counties file suit against Uber, citing Uber’s driver screening process as the issue. George Gascón, the District Attorney of San Francisco:
Uber does not go above and beyond local requirements in every city in which it operates. You are not using an industry-leading background process if you are not fingerprinting your drivers.
Uber spokeswoman Eva Behrend:
Californians and California lawmakers all agree — Uber is an integral, safe and established part of the transportation ecosystem in the Golden State.
