Uber sued for allegedly refusing rides to the blind and putting a dog in the trunk - Washington Post

An advocacy group for the blind is suing the app-based ride-sharing service Uber, alleging the company discriminates against passengers with service dogs.

The federal civil rights suit filed Tuesday by the California chapter of the National Federation of the Blind cites instances in California and elsewhere when blind Uber customers summoned a car only to be refused a ride once the driver saw them with a service dog.

In a statement reported by the San Francisco Examiner , Uber said its policy is to terminate...
