As we noted in last week’s article Uber’s success and growing popularity worldwide has generated both acceptance and encouragement in some countries and States and fierce opposition from the long established taxi industry. Last week we examined several class action lawsuits brought by drivers [O’Connor v. Uber (California)] and customers [Ehret v. Uber (California)] challenging Uber’s alleged misrepresentation that it’s mandatory “gratuity” was for its drivers when, in fact, Uber kept a portion of the “gratuity” for itself. This week we take a look at three more lawsuits against Uber, one, brought by non-Uber Taxi and livery drivers who allege that “Uber misrepresents its rates, misidentifies itself as a transportation company and illegally operates in violation of Chicago Municipal Code provisions regulating the taxi and livery industries” [Manzo v. Uber (Illinois)] and two brought by Taxi and livery competitors that “allege that (Uber) violates various federal (the Lanham Act) and state false advertising and unfair competition laws and …taxicab ordinances by providing a private car service that allows users to call taxicabs…without complying with (local) taxicab regulations” [Boston Cab Dispatch, Inc. v. Uber (Massachusetts)] and “alleging that Uber competes unfairly by misrepresenting certain features of its services, misleading customers as to an association between Uber and (Taxi and livery services) and encouraging taxi drivers to breach their agreement with Plaintiffs” [Yellow Group LLC v. Uber (Illinois)].
