A federal court in Washington denied Uber’s motion to dismiss claims that the company discriminates against disabled individuals because its wheelchair accessible services are less reliable, have higher fares and longer wait times than its non-wheelchair accessible rides. The court ruled the Equal Rights Center has associational standing to bring the complaint on behalf of its members and has plausibly stated discrimination claims.
