Uber, Lyft driver plans to sue Norfolk airport 0

Uber, Lyft driver plans to sue Norfolk airport

Related Coverage NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) For several weeks the battle between car service Uber and Norfolk International Airport has been at a standstill. They have just a few days to get a deal together before the state steps in. Until then, there is still bad blood and one driver says he was caught in the middle.

Lyft is allowed to go because they paid the ransom, attorney Gary C. Byler said. Uber hasn t paid the ransom so they re not allowed to go.

It s very clear. Byler can t hide his feelings on the airport cab dispute. It s an issue that he said directly hurt his client, Lyft and Uber driver Jimmy Frost.

In November, Byler s client drove to the Norfolk Airport to drop passengers off while driving for Lyft. When he pulled up airport security saw the Uber sticker on his car. They yanked him out of the car and detained him, Byler said.

Basically they falsely imprisoned him. Byler said airport security didn t hold his client for long, but he feels the airport authority violated his client s rights in doing it. If they had a problem with Mr.

Frost their options should have been to perhaps file a civil suit or have some sort of discussion on a mutually advantageous basis, Byler said. Instead Frost will file a civil suit. This suit is about trying to get some clear written policies, Byler said.

This way the hardworking folks who help deliver and pick up our air transport will know what the rules are.

10 On Your Side called the airport authority to discuss the policies, but the Deputy Executive Director said they will not discuss current or pending litigation. If there is an issue here it needs to be a civil one, Byler said. They should not have the authority to remove folks and to detain them.

Byler plans to file the lawsuit on behalf of Jimmy Frost next week.
