Uber Has Hired a Law Firm to Investigate Susan Fowler Rigetti

Susan Fowler:

Uber names/blames me for account deletes, and has a different law firm — not Holders — investigating me. I have hired bakerlp.com

Last week she wrote:

Research for the smear campaign has begun. If you are contacted by anyone asking for personal and intimate info about me, please report asap.

I don’t know who is doing this or why. If someone contacts you, please send me their contact information immediately.

The message to other women at Uber is clear: stay silent or we will come after you. Uber claimed last week that it was “in no way involved” with these phone calls investigating Fowler Rigetti’s personal life.

Update: Uber has issued a statement:

“The law firm Perkins Coie is looking into the specific allegations raised by Susan,” Uber said in a statement to BuzzFeed News. “They will report into Eric Holder, who is responsible for the overall investigation into Uber’s workplace practices. To be clear: they are investigating Susan’s claims, not Susan personally.”
