Uber fined over withholding sexual assault records

Uber has been fined $59m for refusing to hand over the details of more than 1,200 alleged victims of sexual assault involving its drivers. Uber had argued that public disclosure may be traumatic for survivors, potentially putting them in danger and discouraging others from coming forward. RAINN had, in an August filing on the case, defended Uber, saying the firm should not have to share victims' names without their consent.

Uber has 30 days to pay the CPUC fine or face having its services suspended in California.
