Uber Is Suing Columbus, OH to Keep Its Insurance Program Secret

Uber hates rules. Laws, regulations, checks, balances—they're all barriers. The company is so accountability-averse that it's suing the city of Columbus, Ohio to keep its driver insurance plan in the dark.

Court House News reports:

Uber wants the City of Columbus barred from responding to an open records request from a local ABC TV station, which asked the city for "unredacted versions of one of the insurance policies that plaintiff Uber submitted as part of its application for a license under peer-to-peer ridesharing regulations newly enacted by Columbus."

"Releasing this insurance policy without the narrow, targeted redactions that Uber seeks would publicly disclose Uber's trade secret information and cause Uber significant, irreparable competitive harm," the company claims.

Your safety in an Uber: a trade secret.
