Suspected Kalamazoo killer sues Uber for $1.36m

KALAMAZOO, MICHIGAN - Former Uber driver and suspected Kalamazoo Killer Jason Dalton is suing the ride sharing company for US$10 million (S$1.36 million), claiming he is "currently in prison because of Uber".

In the lawsuit filed in Michigan on Tuesday (March 15), Dalton claims that he "busted (his) butt" for the company, but "(his) life is ruined because of Uber".

Dalton is accused of killing six people in a Michigan shooting spree last month. In the weeks following his arrest, Dalton also claimed to be a "puppet" of the ride hailing app and said he saw a "devil" figure and other images on his phone screen.
