The lawyers have agreed with Uber on a discovery plan for the exchange of documents. Discovery is an important stage in the case, in which Uber is required to hand over documents that are in its possession, power or control that are relevant to the case. This process can take some time, as Uber will need to carefully look through their databases, and it often involves large numbers of documents.
Uber has since indicated that it would provide the rest of the relevant documents by 2 July 2021.
Maurice Blackburn continues to work on the case in the meantime. They are reviewing the documents that have been provided by Uber, and are preparing for trial. At this stage, we expect a trial will take place in 2022.
