The Seattle Times reports the lawsuit filed Monday by the Western Washington Taxicab Operators Association contends Uber is involved in “unlawful and deceptive business practices.” Court documents allege that unlike the taxi drivers, Uber’s drivers don’t comply with legal requirements set by Seattle, King County and Washington state for the personal transportation industry.
