Santa Fe, New Mexico, judge declines to shut down Lyft
from Government Technology
hief First District Judge Raymond Ortiz of Santa Fe declined Thursday to enforce the state Public Regulation Commission’s cease-and-desist order against upstart transportation company Lyft Inc. The Public Regulation Commission’s staff attorney, Michael C. Smith, had encouraged the judge to enforce the 6-month-old order telling Lyft to cease operations in New Mexico. Lyft threatens public safety because it has not established that it has proper insurance coverage and thorough background checks of drivers it deploys, Smith said.
