Uber sued after allegedly obtaining rape victim's medical records
Uber Technologies Inc was sued on Thursday by a woman who said top executives at the company improperly obtained her medical records after she was raped by a driver in India, according to court documents.
The lawsuit, filed in a California federal court, came as Uber Chief Executive Travis Kalanick announced a leave of absence this week.
Kalanick, under fire for fostering a culture of sexism and rule-breaking, is also named as a defendant in the lawsuit.
