Uber’s lawsuit challenging New York City’s first-in-the-nation law capping the number of ride-hail drivers that operate on its streets has been dismissed. The law, which went into effect August 2018, paused the issuance of new licenses to drivers for 12 months. Uber wanted the law overturned for fear that the city will ultimately make the cap permanent. Those fears are not totally unfounded: this past August, the New York Taxi and Limousine Commission voted to extend the cap another 12 months.
