Uber has settled yet another lawsuit, with the issue of driver background checks at the heart of the latest legal dispute. According to Reuters, in response to a case brought in San Francisco federal court by a group of drivers, the ride-hail giant has agreed to pay out $7.5 million.

The dispute involves drivers who allege their accounts were deactivated (essentially fired) after Uber pulled their consumer background reports without first getting drivers' approval.

This, it should be noted, is a separate settlement than the $100 million the company agreed to pay to CA drivers in April of this year — and that had to do with the classification of drivers as contractors and not employees, an issue that appears far from settled, but is settled for now in California.

The company has settled a string of cases recently, including the aforementioned $100 million settlement with the goal of keeping drivers as contractors, and yet another $25 million settlement to the cities of SF and LA relating to a so-called "safe-ride fee."

It should be noted that Uber is currently valued at $62.5 billion and can probably afford it.

Nothing is final yet, however, as the judge in the case must agree to the settlement.
