Until death, or lawsuit, do us part?
A French man is suing the ride-sharing company Uber for ruining his marriage.
The accusation? The plaintiff claims that, once he had logged in to Uber on his wife’s phone, the app continued to provide her notifications of his pick-ups and drop-offs. Whatever it was that his wife saw in those notifications allegedly motivated her to file for divorce.
Talk about a bad ride.
The lawsuit seeks an astonishing €45 million, or about $48 million, in damages for the “pain” caused to the plaintiff in the case.
The case is pending, so we have yet to see if the courts will pick up and take the defendants at Uber for a ride for this allegedly destroyed marriage.
