The Department of Justice filed a lawsuit against Uber Technologies Inc. on Wednesday for allegedly charging “wait time” fees for disabled passengers who took more time to enter the vehicle.

The suit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California and claims that Uber started charging passengers who required more time to get to or inside a vehicle wait time fees across the country, violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Wait time fees start two minutes after the Uber driver arrives at the pickup location and are charged until the trip begins, according to the lawsuit.
