CHICAGO -- A number of Chicago taxi and limousine companies filed a lawsuit Oct. 5 against Uber, the request-a-ride company that lets you e-hail and pay for a car with your smartphone.
In April, the San Francisco startup expanded its service in Chicago from black cars to include taxis as well. (Uber’s recent attempt to expand from black cars to yellow taxis in New York City were swatted down last month by the Taxi and Limousine Commission.)
