(AP) - A federal judge has ruled California taxicab companies can sue competitor Uber over advertising statements that it offers the safest rides on the road.
The taxicab companies accused the ride-hailing company of false advertising for stating in ads and online postings that its background checks were the most thorough and its services the safest in the business.
The statements implied, and sometimes explicitly declared, that conventional taxis were less safe.
