    A Chicago woman has sued Uber and a customer of the ride-sharing company, saying she was stabbed by another passenger.

    Jennifer Camacho says she called an UberPool for a ride home on Jan. 30. She says the passenger in the front seat began slashing her in the face as soon as she got in.

    The lawsuit filed in Cook County Circuit Court contends the 25-year-old Camacho suffered several facial wounds.

    Plaintiff's attorney Bryant Greening says Uber was negligent. Greening seeks a judgment of more than $50,000 for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

    White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders displayed the administrations's antagonism against the media in heated exchanges with members of the White House press corp during the daily press briefing on Tuesday, June 27, 2017. Sanders pointed to a retracted CNN story as basis of the White House's "frustration" and skepticism with ongoing coverage, while one reporter accused the White House of "inflammatory rhetoric."

    Uber spokeswoman Kayla Whaling declined to comment on the lawsuit.

    Chicago police arrested 34-year-old Julie Ramer for the attack on Camacho and charged her with battery. It wasn't immediately known if Ramer has an attorney.
