Uber Class Action

Jun 21, 2023 | News

The Uber Class Action is rapidly approaching, and we anticipate heading to court in February 2024.
We are fortunate to have Australia’s most successful Class Action Law firm, Maurice Blackburn, leading this case. They are backed by litigation funding in excess of $20 million dollars, provided by global litigation specialists Harbour Litigation.
This has been a long time in the making. Rod Barton and Andre Baruch conducted nearly a year of research and sought other legal opinion before bringing this to Maurice Blackburn. We would like to express our gratitude to our lawyer and advisor, Nadav Prawer, for his invaluable guidance and assistance in bringing this case forward.
What makes Rod and Andre particularly proud is that we have not asked any of the 8000+ registrants to contribute to the costs. There is no financial risk for the registrants. Rod and Andre have been closely working with Maurice Blackburn for years and will continue to do so to ensure justice is served. We have a strong case, and we are confident in our position. We are also well-funded, ensuring that we can fight this battle effectively.
If you haven’t registered yet, it is crucial that you do so now! There may come a point where you could miss out. If you were a license holder, operated a taxi or hire car, or were driving one of those vehicles, we strongly recommend that you register with Maurice Blackburn immediately.
