Gonzales v. Uber: The CFAA and Invasion of Privacy Case

Gonzales sued Uber as a putative class action for Lyft drivers whose electronic communications and whereabouts were allegedly intercepted, accessed, monitored, and/or transmitted by Uber. Uber filed a Motion to Dismiss the claims of invasion of privacy and the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. The Court analyzed the elements of each claim and dismissed the case but gave the Plaintiff leave to properly amend the lawsuit.
