FROM LCT: In a response to reports of Uber's tactics against the taxi industry,  Taxi Limousine & Paratransit Association President Michael Fogarty stated to LCT on Nov. 25: "I am surprised Uber would choose to invest resources on investigating their opposition. I believe they would be better served using these funds to come into regulatory compliance.”
