Broward County man sues Uber, alleges drivers refused to transport his guide dog
A blind Broward County man is suing Uber in federal court, alleging that the ride-share company violated the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) after its drivers repeatedly refused to transport him because he travels with a service dog.
Ansel Davis filed the lawsuit Aug. 3 in the Southern District of Florida, emphasizing that he was dependent on third-party services, such as Uber, to travel around the county because of his disability.
“In this case, Uber has repeatedly, consistently and incessantly failed and/or refused to transport (the) plaintiff, only because he is accompanied by a guide dog,” the complaint states. “The conduct by Uber violates the ADA.”
