Two Limo Companies Drop Out Of Five-Party Suit Against Uber

Posted on January 8, 2016

Two of the five taxi and limo firms who filed a federal class action lawsuit against Palm Beach County , claiming it gives special treatment to the Uber app-based ride program, will no longer be active plaintiffs, their lawyers said this week in court documents.

Boyce Transportation, which operates A1A Airport and Limousine Service, and Prestige Limousine, said in a motion filed Wednesday that they no longer want to participate in the suit, filed in May 2015 in U.S. Circuit Court.

In their lawsuit, the two and the other three plaintiffs — North County Transportation, Apollo Transportation Services and Metro Premier Car Service – demanded monetary damages, a declaration that Uber is a vehicle-for-hire firm, and an order barring the county from “selectively enforcing the laws of the state and county applicable to plaintiffs’ business for the benefit of any (vehicle for hire) company willing to pay PBC to do so.”
