SAN FRANCISCO – A San Mateo County resident alleges a transportation company made withdraws from her bank account without authorization.
Janette Iniguez filed a complaint on behalf of individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated on Oct. 24 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against
Uber Technologies Inc. and Does 1-10

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in April, she discovered that the defendants began to deduct funds from her account multiple times on a recurring basis that lasted for several months, without her consent or authorization.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seek judgment against defendants, be certified as a class action, damages, costs, attorneys' fees, interest and other relief the court deems appropriate. She is represented by Todd M. Friedman, Adrian R. Bacon and Meghan E. George of Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman in Woodland Hills.
