New Mexico Judge Refuses to Stop Uber, Lyft

October 6, 2014

A state judge has denied a request by New Mexico taxi cab and limousine companies for a temporary restraining order against the ridesharing services Lyft and Uber.

District Court Judge Nancy Franchini wrote in her order denying the request in late September that the plaintiffs haven’t met their burden of showing they’ll suffer irreparable injury unless an injunction is granted.

Lyft officials called the ruling a positive step.

The issue will continue to be dealt with by the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission.

The PRC approved a cease-and-desist order against Lyft last May.

The commission has yet to enforce it and has scheduled a hearing for next month to amend some rules to accommodate ridesharing firms.
