A federal judge denied an emergency motion for a preliminary injunction on behalf of Lyft drivers asking the court to reclassify them as employees to qualify for California’s emergency sick leave.

In an order chastising both plaintiffs and the ridesharing company, U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria of the Northern District of California on Tuesday affirmed his tentative ruling issued prior to a hearing last week finding the question of whether Lyft drivers should qualify for California sick pay is less of an emergency than the plaintiffs’ counsel at Lichten & Liss-Riordan suggested.
