Dear FOI,

No issue with identity - third parties will find it on the RTK website in any event.

Has Uber not agreed already given these paragraphs in the Media release :
The ACCC has instituted proceedings in the Federal Court against Uber B.V. (Uber), which has admitted it engaged in misleading or deceptive conduct and made false or misleading representations in the Uber ridesharing app.

The parties have agreed to jointly seek orders from the Federal Court including declarations that Uber contravened the Australian Consumer Law, and for Uber to pay $26 million in penalties. The Federal Court will decide at a later date whether the orders sought, including the proposed penalties, are appropriate.

Yours sincerely,

JS
