Uber says it plans to appeal a California judge’s ruling that struck down a state ballot measure that exempted app-based ride-hailing and delivery services from a state law requiring drivers to be classified as employees eligible for benefits and job protections.
Proposition 22 was unconstitutional, Alameda County Superior Court Judge Frank Roesch ruled.
The measure was approved by voters in November.
Uber, Lyft and other services spent $200 million in support, making it the most expensive ballot measure in state history.
An appeal could send the issue to the California Supreme Court.
