    Judge Chen continues to enforce the laws. This is what Uber and their attorneys do not understand. Ubers‘ schemes, manipulations, deceits, and obvious defendant‘s pleadings are coming to light across the globe. Uber controls everything portal to portal., the money, the app itself, the hiring/firing/rehiring, rating scales, policy and procedures, purchasing "app"insurance for the drivers and their vehicles. Vehicle criteria, chauffeur profile criteria, training procedures, and pricing.Why does Uber and Lyft fight employee classification so vigorously? Simple, If Uber had to put all the regulatory costs , driver and vehicle compliance cost including payroll and employment taxes into their predatory rates, their business platform would immediately collapse as their investors ($8B ) .Clearly Uber and its copy cat, Lyft are circumventing the US CODES, IRS and the Department of Labor, the FTC, The FAA, and the SEC laws as well as state statutes and city ordinances. Uber says they are disruptive but they are classified as defiant against our laws.Judge Chen and the appellate judges took solemn oaths to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution and the laws of the United States.
