Uber agrees to reduced fine in fight over sexual assault data
Uber has agreed to pay $9 million to the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) after refusing to hand over data about riders and drivers who were sexually assaulted, and pay a separate $150,000 fine, according to a settlement agreement reached Thursday.
Uber will also now provide data about the assaults to the CPUC, though it will remove any potentially identifying information.
The CPUC originally fined Uber $59 million in December 2020 and threatened to suspend its license to operate in the state after the company failed to answer questions about a damning safety report it published the year prior.
