On January 8, 2018, ride-share giant Uber Technologies and a proposed class of New York State drivers reached a $3 million settlement that will bring a two-year legal battle to a close. The suit itself was originally filed in New York federal court in 2015 by named plaintiffs Joce Martinez and Jose Ortega. In the complaint, Martinez and Ortega accused Uber of misclassifying drivers as independent contractors, which lead to drivers being unfairly underpaid.
