In a small victory for the on-demand transportation company, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit said it would allow Uber to appeal a District Court order that certified a class of nearly 160,000 drivers in California.

In its appeal, attorneys representing Uber argued that drivers for the ride-hailing service signed away their right to participate in class-action lawsuits due to a binding arbitration clause. District Judge Edward Chen certified the class last September after deciding that those arbitration agreements were unenforceable.

"District courts are not supposed to embark on seek-and-destroy missions in which they resort to inventing creative means of obliterating arbitration agreements," Uber’s lawyers, led by Gibson Dunn's Theodore Boutrous Jr., wrote in the petition to appeal in December.
