(SAN FRANCISCO) –– A federal judge has approved a $27 million monetary settlement in a class-action lawsuit against Lyft, after Teamsters and Lyft drivers filed legal objections to a preliminary settlement of $12.5 million, calling it “insufficient.”

The objections were filed by the Uber Lyft Teamsters Rideshare Alliance (ULTRA), Teamsters Joint Council 7 and Teamsters Joint Council 42 to a preliminary settlement in the case in March 2016. Following the objections, the judge ordered the parties to go back to the table to correct the deficiencies in the preliminary settlement covering nearly 100,000 California drivers.
