Progressive Credit Union v. Melrose Credit Union

Taxi companies can’t sue New York City over ridesharing, says the Second Circuit (citing a pair of IJ cases). Regulating Uber/Lyft differently than taxis doesn’t violate equal protection, nor does due process protect cab companies against diminution in the value of their medallions. Moreover, the taxis can’t proceed with their claim that said diminution is an unconstitutional taking of their property because they didn’t first exhaust the claim in state court. State court (separate case, same claim, citing the same pair of IJ cases): Not an unconstitutional taking. (H/t: Daniel Lehmann.)
