Aug. 19, 2016: Uber files a Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings

On August 19, 2016, defendants again sought dismissal of the lawsuit. This time – defendants’ second attempt – defendants argued that plaintiffs’ original complaint failed to state any viable claims.  Defendants asserted that even if the plaintiffs’ allegations were true, the law would not support a finding that UberBLACK drivers are employees entitled wages and reimbursement of expenses.  Defendants also argued that they did not owe a fiduciary duty to plaintiffs.
