The Tennessean Finally Reports, Cab rivals win round one against new Nashville regulation.

I am glad to see the carrier pigeons finally reached The Tennessean. This news happened a week ago and I reported it on this blog at the time. I was afraid the Tennessean was just going to ignore this story. It is better late than never, however. This is a good report explaining the issue.

Drivers say Metro designed new rules to kill their business 

Jan. 25, 2012,  Three small-business owners have won the first round of a federal lawsuit challenging a Metro law that regulates non-taxi vehicles for hire.The car service operators say the new regulations — which, among other things, require sedan and limo services to charge a $45 minimum fare, ban them from using leased or old vehicles and require that they dispatch only from a fixed place of business for prearranged appointments — are anti-competitive and unconstitutional.
