A woman who was raped in India by an Uber driver has filed a second lawsuit against the ride-hailing company. She says that Uber executives unlawfully acquired and shared her medical records relating to the sexual assault.
The victim, a Texas resident who filed her lawsuit as an anonymous Jane Doe, was raped by an Indian Uber driver in late 2014. After Doe's allegations became public, Uber CEO Travis Kalanick said "what happened over the weekend in New Delhi is horrific" and pledged his company's support in prosecuting the driver.
The driver, Shiv Kumar Yadav, was convicted and sentenced to life in prison in 2015. Doe sued Uber over the matter and reached a confidential settlement with the company in 2015.
