Judge Rejects Uber's $100 Million Settlement with Drivers

A California federal judge knocked down a proposed $100 million settlement in a class-action suit over whether Uber's drivers should be classified as contractors or employees. U.S. District Judge Edward Chen's order rejecting Uber's offer noted that the settlement amount was only 10 percent of what lawyers for the drivers estimate that Uber could owe them and provided only $1 million toward state penalties that could add up to more than $1 billion.
