Judge allows Lyft to operate in Kansas City while it prepares for court battle

District Judge Brian Wimes said the city provided no evidence that it would suffer “irreparable harm” if the ride-sharing service continued to operate while both sides prepare for a three-day trial set to begin Sept. 17. Kansas City contends that Lyft is operating illegally by not complying with local regulations governing taxicab and livery services.
