Uber sued by thousands of Australian taxi drivers in class action

Australian law firm Maurice Blackburn has filed a class action against Uber Technologies Inc on behalf of thousands of taxi and chartered drivers in Australia, accusing the world's largest ride-hailing company of operating illegally and causing them financial harm.

The lawsuit, filed in the Victoria Supreme Court, was brought on behalf of about 6,000 drivers and taxi licence owners from across four Australian states, the lawyers said in a statement.

"This will be a landmark case regarding the alleged illegal operations of Uber in Australia and the devastating impact that has had on the lives of hard-working and law-abiding citizens here," said Andrew Watson, Maurice Blackburn national head of Class Actions.

Having another crack at it, it seems. I wonder what the real solution is here to put the issue to bed? I suppose it's timed to coincide with the IPO and try drive down the value a smidgen.

Their charging is legal e.g. set by IPART - and uberx isn't too far off now anyway.

The difference is the initial illegal activity by uber, though the law was since changed.
