“If they settled this case and these folks are still independent contractors, what has Uber really bought itself if it can just face another lawsuit right after this?” said Todd. “Now you’ve won this giant war, and you’ll say all your drivers are subject to arbitration agreements. Maybe all you’ll have are little battles instead.”
