CASE ENTRY

Checker Cab Operators, Inc. v. Miami-Dade County

Miami taxicab medallion owners do not have a “property right to monopoly power in perpetuity,” says the Eleventh Circuit, citing a trio of IJ cases. Thus, officials did not unconstitutionally take medallion owners’ property by failing to block competition from Uber and Lyft. Nor did officials violate the Equal Protection Clause by regulating taxis and ridesharing differently. (Click here for commentary on the ruling.)
