The data breach resulted in almost 11,000 Washington Uber drivers having their data compromised.
Under Washington law, the breach of names, phone numbers and addresses does not require notification, Ferguson said, but the driver's license numbers do.
The lawsuit could see penalties of $2,000 per violation for failing to notify those affected and the attorney general's office.
Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said in a statement: "This latest shocking development about Uber will alarm millions of Londoners whose personal data could have been stolen by criminals". "Consumers expect and deserve protection from disclosure of their personal information".
Central to the lawsuit are claims that Uber failed to protect its data and, once the breach occurred, actively went out of its way to hide this. With investigations under way by the attorneys general of Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Mexico, and NY, there will likely be more on this front soon.
The complaint also noted that "Uber is aware of its responsibilities to provide notice of data security breaches", citing the fact that, in 2016, "the New York Attorney General fined Uber for failing to notify drivers and that office about a data breach that occurred in 2014". Almost 11,000 drivers in the state were affected.
Similarly, the UK's Minister of State for Digital, Matt Hancock, said, "The Government expects Uber to respond fully to the incident with the urgency it demands and to provide the appropriate support to its customers and drivers in the United Kingdom".
