Big news out of the state of Pennsylvania. According to the Attorney General’s Office, thousands of Uber drivers were unaware of an alleged data breach. Did Uber owe a duty to private citizens to inform drivers of this?
On March 5, 2018, Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro filed a lawsuit against Uber Technologies, Inc. for violating Pennsylvania’s data breach notification law. Uber knew for more than a year that a data breach potentially impacting 57 million passengers and drivers around the world had happened – but the company failed to disclose the breach until last November.
