Recode ----- Uber is being sued by a woman who was raped during a ride in New Delhi, India in 2014 for intrusion of privacy and defamation among other claims after it was revealed that an Uber executive obtained her medical records. The woman, listed as Jane Doe in the suit, has filed a new claim in California against Uber and against the executive who obtained her records, Eric Alexander. CEO Travis Kalanick and the now-former SVP of business Emil Michael are also named in the suit. As Recode first reported, following the incident, Alexander obtained her medical records and carted the file around for many months after showing it to a number of executives including Michael and Kalanick.
