FTC and Uber Align to Stop New Seattle Law for Ride-Hail Drivers
The Federal Trade Commission is siding with Uber Technologies Inc. in a fight to block a Seattle law that would allow ride-hailing drivers to collectively bargain. In an amicus brief, the FTC and the U.S. Justice Department told the Ninth Circuit that a federal trial judge's ruling that upheld the law threatened to "open the antitrust exemption door for nearly any type of regulation."
Judge Alex Kozinski, sitting for his first oral argument after the Washington Post reported harassment allegations against him on Dec. 8, appeared to be in the court's minority in a case over whether there's a constitutional right to a livable climate.
