Ride-Sharing Services Face Legal Threat From San Francisco, Los Angeles – WSJ

“The largest ride-sharing services are now facing a legal threat from regulators on their home turf, a new setback in their race to upend the multibillion-dollar taxi industry.

The district attorneys of San Francisco and Los Angeles on Thursday accused Sidecar Inc. of violating California business law and threatened an injunction on its service following a joint investigation, according to a letter sent to Sidecar and reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.

Similar letters were also hand-delivered to Sidecar’s larger rivals in San Francisco, Uber Technologies Inc. and Lyft Inc., according to a spokeswoman for the San Francisco district attorney’s office. She declined to comment further.”
