Uber Loses Crucial California Court Battle


Uber on Tuesday filed an appeal of a California Labor Commission ruling that is widely viewed as a threat to the company’s business model. The ruling resulted from a claim filed by a San Francisco driver against Uber last year. Details of the earlier action emerged when Uber moved to appeal the commission’s decision handed down in March. The commission found that the plaintiff was an employee of Uber rather than an independent contractor, as the company had maintained. It ordered payment of $4,152 in reimbursable expenses and interest.

Supreme Court Turns Deaf Ear to Google's Street View Appeal


The Supreme Court has declined Google’s appeal of a lower-court ruling in a class-action lawsuit that alleges it violated federal wiretap laws with its Street View cars. The court left in place a decision the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals handed down in September. The appeals court declined to dismiss the case, ruling that Google was not exempt from liability under the federal Wiretap Act after it inadvertently gathered usernames, passwords, emails, and other information from private WiFi networks while collecting data for Street View.
