A female passenger of Lyft has sued the ride-hailing business here in San Antonio. She alleges she was raped and sexually assaulted by a driver late one night. The woman was intoxicated. She blacked out a few times. She asked to pull over to vomit. When she got back in the car, she woke to find the male driver assaulting her. She started punching him. The driver took her home. When she got home, she texted a friend the license plate number belonging to Refugio Campos. See San Antonio Express News report.
The passenger filed a report with the San Antonio Police Department. The suit has been filed in state district court. It will be a problematical lawsuit. Lyft and Uber claim their drivers are independent contractors. So, suing Lyft itself will be difficult.
