Please focus on the part of this article that indicates the suspect rode a Uber to the site. Does this imply that prosecution indeed has the power to order Uber to release passenger information by the court of law?

If this is put to a good use, Uber will no longer have the ultimate excuse of "protecting the privacy of customers" in the event of a fabricated accusation. Hopefully this will provide drivers with some recourse from facing kangaroo court-decided deactivation. What does it take for the prosecution to deliver justice to small potatoes on the road? An assault? A murder?
