The same law firm that won a Supreme Court decision granting the right to sue Facebook in a B.C. court has now launched a class-action lawsuit against Uber on behalf of Albertans whose personal information was compromised in the company’s recently revealed data breach.
The international ride-hailing company admitted last week that personal information belonging to 57 million of its customers had been stolen in 2016.
