ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Uber is now facing a lawsuit over safety issues in its home state of California, San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon said on Tuesday. The district attorneys of San Francisco filed suit against Uber for misleading customers about its background checks on drivers. Their civil complaint also charges that Uber drivers work at airports without obtaining authorization, and in the case of San Francisco, charge a $4 extra fee to passengers travelling there without paying anything to the airport. The district attorneys are seeking a permanent injunction requiring Uber to stop practices that they say violate California law.
