In a victory for Uber, a federal judge Thursday dismissed claims brought by a Lyft driver alleging the company tracked his whereabouts for competitive edge, driving the final nail in the coffin in a class action struck earlier this year.

Presiding over the case in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, federal magistrate judge Jacqueline Scott Corley sided with Uber in dismissing with prejudice a claim that the company violated the Stored Communications Act by using spyware to spam Lyft drivers with “fake ride requests” and intercept, access, monitor and transmit driver data. The dismissal joins three others on claims brought by plaintiff Michael Gonzales, repped by attorneys at Audet & Partners and Zimmerman Reed, effectively ending the class action.
