(AP) - San Francisco is suing Uber to force the ride-hailing service to disclose business information of its drivers.
City Attorney Dennis Herrera filed a petition Thursday in San Francisco Superior Court seeking a court order for addresses and names of drivers who operate in the city, saying they need to comply with city registration rules.
Drivers who operate more than seven days a year must obtain a business registration certificate and pay an annual $91 fee. This is a requirement of all businesses.
Uber San Francisco general manager Wayne Ting said in a statement that the company agrees drivers must get a business license, but wants permission from drivers to give the information to the city.
The company also wants assurances that drivers' home addresses are kept off a city website.
