BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Husband caught in affair sues Uber for tracking whereabouts

Husband caught in affair sues Uber for tracking whereabouts

It’s likely a French businessman didn’t realize his uber-mistake when using his wife’s smartphone to request an Uber to take him on a rendezvous to his mistress — several times. 

According to a BBC report, when his wife received multiple phone alerts from the Uber Technologies Inc. ride-sharing service — tracking his trips, which tipped her off to his affair — she eventually filed for divorce. 

The man, in turn, filed his own court documents in the form of a lawsuit against Uber for a reported €45 million ($47.9 million), zeroing in on a bug in the phone app that led to his wife’s discovery of his affair. According to the man’s lawyer, the bug “has caused him problems in his private life." 

The case is slated for a hearing later in February, according to media reports.
