Edward Caban, an Uber driver in Costa Mesa, California, was attacked by a drunken Taco Bell exec last October. Taco Bell quickly fired Benjamin Golden, the executive involved in the incident.

Now Golden is suing the driver. He claims that he was illegally recorded.

Both Golden's claim for $5 million in damages from Caban and others, as well as his suggestion that Caban bore responsibility for any "damages" he incurred, are contained in court documents filed in response to Caban's own civil lawsuit against Golden for the attack.

Caban's lawyer Rivers Morrell III on Friday said that Golden's claims about the recording's legal status and his blaming of Caban are "disingenuous" and "totally bogus."
