“Latest on Uber, Lyft: Council member sues mayor to void Prop 1 vote”

Austin American-Statesman:

Austin City Council Member Don Zimmerman has filed a lawsuit against Mayor Steve Adler that challenges the May 7 electoral defeat of Proposition 1 and attacks the city’s “Swiss-cheese regulation” of ride-hailing companies.

The suit filed late Thursday in Travis County state District Court argues that the vote should be voided because Prop 1’s ballot language “misled the voters and omitted chief features of the amendment, distorting the true essence of the amendment.”

Those omissions include the amendment’s financial effect and whether it can be enforced at all, the 21-page suit said.
