Uber Drivers Get Big Boost In Lawsuit Against Company, SFGate, ft. Tad Devlin
Tad Devlin, partner in KDV’s San Francisco office, has been quoted in a SFGATE article by Carolyn Said published December 9, 2015. In the article, Tad comments on a U.S. District Judge ruling that dramatically expands the scope of drivers, among other issues, to be included in a class-action lawsuit by Uber California drivers seeking to be reclassified as employees.
Tad Devlin, a San Francisco attorney, said that it’s too soon to count Uber out, and that its marketplace strengths would overcome a court loss.
“The brand strength and rapidly increasing use and recognition of the Uber cannot be discounted,” he said. Even if ride costs increase slightly if Uber loses the case, it’s unlikely to lose its entrenched position, he said.
