The Critical Role of Marketing and Intake in the Uber Assault MDL

In a groundbreaking turn of events, the legal battle against Uber over sexual assault allegations has reached a pivotal moment, with the JPML’s consolidation of numerous claims into a singular Multidistrict Litigation (MDL). This significant development is not merely a procedural milestone; it represents a clarion call for justice, echoing through the corridors of the gig economy and demanding a reckoning for the survivors. Amidst this legal odyssey, the strategic importance of targeted advertising and comprehensive intake services cannot be overstated. For attorneys navigating the complex terrain of the Uber assault MDL, investing in these critical areas offers a unique opportunity to amplify their impact, ensuring that survivors’ voices are not only heard but championed with the full force of the law.

In July 2023, plaintiffs filed a motion for the consolidation of their sexual assault claims against Uber, which was approved in early October 2023, transferring nearly 80 lawsuits into a Multidistrict Litigation (MDL) under Judge Charles R. Breyer’s jurisdiction in the Northern District of California. Uber attempted to break apart the MDL and asked the 9th Circuit to reverse the JPML’s formation of the MDL. It is worth noting that such a request has never been granted. While Uber’s request was pending it asked Judge Breyer, who oversees the MDL, to stay the litigation 60 days. Fortunately, Judge Breyer denied Uber’s stay request and the MDL is moving forward.
