"A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit by the Boston Taxi Owners Association against the city for its laws governing ride-hailing companies like Uber and Lyft.

The suit, which was was filed in January 2015, claimed Boston was violating equal-protection rights of taxi drivers by not applying the same rules to taxi drivers that it does to drivers for so-called Transportation Network Companies (TNCs.)

The judge dismissed the suit Thursday, saying Massachusetts state law establishes certain minimum standards for ride-hailing drivers and bars communities from imposing their own regulations."
