After discovering Uber executives viewed her medical records without her consent, a woman who was raped by an Uber driver in India is suing the ride-hailing company, USA Today reports. The suit accuses Uber of intrusion into private affairs, public disclosure of private facts and defamation of character. The suit also alleges Uber believed the victim was working with rival ride-hailing company Ola to orchestrate the attack to tarnish Uber's reputation in India. "It is shocking that [Uber CEO] Travis Kalanick could publicly say that Uber would do everything to support our client and her family in her recovery when he and other executives were reviewing illegally obtained medical records and engaging in offensive and spurious conspiracy theories about the brutal rape she so tragically suffered," said the victim's lawyer, Douglas Wigdor.
