New opinion: Uber wins Third Circuit antitrust appeal

Phila. Taxi Assoc. v. Uber Technologies – antitrust – affirmance – Rendell

The Third Circuit today emphatically upheld the dismissal of an antitrust suit brought by Philadelphia taxi operators against Uber. It was a sweeping victory for Uber: the taxi operators lost on all three elements of proving anti-competitive conduct, and for good measure they lost on antitrust standing, too. Uber may have harmed its competitors,  the court concluded, but it did not harm competition.

Joining Rendell were Ambro and Krause. Arguing counsel were John Innelli of Philadelphia for the taxi operators and Steven Reed of Morgan Lewis for Uber.
