Lyft is being sued for having drivers who allegedly have sexually harassed and assaulted their ride along clients.
In a lawsuit filed by 19 women in San Francisco Superior Court, these women are claiming that Lyft drivers are nothing more than sexual predators. It echos a similar lawsuit filed by 14 women earlier this year in the same court. The lawsuit claims that the company has done nothing to address the sexual predator crisis and requests compensatory damages on behalf of the women.
Detailed accounts are included in the lawsuit which reach back into 2017 of attempted rape, sexual assault, and other harassment. The stories go into more graphic detail of Lyft drivers asking for sexual favors of their passengers.
Uber and Lyft have both been in the spotlight for workers rights. This consumer law lawsuit dives into the requests for rights of the passengers.
