Indian rape victim looks to sue Uber in US

The 26 year old Indian woman who was allegedly raped by Uber taxi driver Shiv Kumar Yadav, 32, is considering taking the tech cab company to court in the US. The victim is reported to have approached Douglas Wigdor the American lawyer who represented Nafissatou Diallo, the New York maid who accused former IMF MD Dominique Strauss-Kahn of sexual assault. Mr Wigdor confirmed he has been retained by the Indian woman who was raped and said he will use all his resources to vindicate his client's fight to hold those responsible and ensure the crime does not happen again. Authorities in Delhi banned the taxi service as a result of the rape, and Yadav pleaded not guilty to charges of rape, kidnapping and criminal intimidation.
