>A Southern California man captured on video attacking an Uber driver has sued the driver for $5 million, claiming the video was recorded without his consent.
>Former Taco Bell executive Benjamin Golden of Newport Beach was arrested in November and charged with misdemeanor assault and battery for allegedly hitting 23-year-old driver Edward Caban. In November, the driver sued the 32-year-old Golden for more than $25,000 in damages.
>The Orange County Register reported Saturday that Golden filed a cross-complaint last month saying Caban illegally recorded him and posted the video to YouTube. The now-viral video captured by a dashboard-mounted camera shows Golden repeatedly striking Caban on the trip in Costa Mesa.
>As a result of media coverage, Golden says he suffered emotional distress, humiliation and the loss of his job.
Basically you can't surreptitiously record an interaction between two other people, but as long as you're a party to the interaction, it's ok. Inb4 sex videos, it doesn't work for shit like that.
>He thinks that any of the candidates are Rednecks.
Hate to break it to you, but they aren't even that. None of the republicans (Except Rand Paul, but he's White Collar anyways.) have done a single day of hard work, or been poor.
Take your Librul memes to another board.
Good, I hate sue happy faggots
That little cunt driver should have either kicked his ass for attacking him or petitioned to have him sent to jail for assault.
Him sueing the guy for $23k is retardedly faggot tier and I'm glad the guy has decided to sue him back for $5 million
>le redneck may may XD
Go fuck yourself liberal cunt
ugh.. In any sane universe a judge would, would say
"Yes 5 million dollars sounds completely fare, please pay that Uber driver 5 million dollars, thank you go away"
that response would stop this bullshit fast
Are you retarded? He captured video of the guy committing felony assault, as long as that video is admissible in court then he can sue the pants off of this Golden faggot.
The only problem now is being able to prove that the video is legal, which he can do since he was an Uber driver and his car is his place of business. Businesses are allowed to record people on their premises.
Was he ever actually arrested? He definitely should have been, but I've only heard of Taco Bell catching wind of the video and firing him, not him having charges pressed against him. If he's been charged, then he likely got a deferred judgement for probation/fines/community service. Likely a first time offender.
What are the laws in California for recording?
Sounded like he was giving him just a name of a place, maybe said he typed the wrong address in and it was a few blocks over or that type of situation?
With Uber you type your destination address in before it gives you a rate, so not sure how the situation arose.
Not %100 sure but They are against it somewhat ( as far as I know some tv shows etc.. go to places like NY because of regulations regarding hidden cameras etc..) but that is public recording on a tv show. I don't know which category uber falls under. Because in many states your own car is considered private space in which you are or should be allowed I think

He's not a private business either (as in some Joe running an accounting business in his living room), he's a business that caters to the public like McDonalds or a car wash. Are Californians so silly that every business has to inform you that there are cameras located within in the business establishment?
