LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) — A former Uber Technologies, Inc. driver has filed a class action lawsuit against the company, as well as Xchange Leasing, LLC, UFS Inc. and Bama Leasing, Inc., citing alleged breach of contract, fraud and unfair competition.
John Kikano filed a complaint on Jan. 20 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against the defendants, alleging that they falsely advertised their vehicle leases as having no mileage cap.
According to the complaint, Kikano alleges that he sustained damages after being charged for exceeding caps on their leases. He holds Uber Technologies, Xchange Leasing, UFS and Bama Leasing responsible because they allegedly marketed their leases to drivers as having no mileage cap in order to deceive them and charge excess mileage penalties, which would be deducted from drivers' weekly pay.
Kikano requests a trial by jury and seeks general and special damages, interest, permanent injunction, court costs, rescission, court costs and any further relief this court grants. He is represented by Christopher J. Hamner, Amy T. Wootton and Anthony J. Nunes of Hamner Law Offices, APC in Los Angeles.
U.S. District Court for the Central District of California Case number 2:17-cv-00509-CAS-JEM
