Seattle cab companies are prepared to file a lawsuit challenging a referendum from Uber. Cab drivers claim the referendum, which would dismiss new regulations on ride-services in the city of Seattle, is not valid.
Seattle council members voted last month to cap the number of drivers for ride-services companies like Uber, Lyft and Sidecar.
Monday marks the second, and possibly final, deadline set by Mayor Murray for all sides to agree on regulations. If a deal is not reached, Murray threatened a cease-and-desist order.
Negotiations have been ongoing, but so far there is no deal to report. Mayor Ed Murray's office was not ready to discuss a cease-and-desist order, citing ongoing talks.
Seattle Police say they do not yet have a plan in place to enforce a shut down of ride-services.
