Sidecar, Uber and Lyft told to stop operating in Los Angeles

Three popular car-for-hire companies — Sidecar, Uber and Lyft — received cease-and-desist letters Monday from the city of Los Angeles, accusing them of operating illegally.

I’ll have a full story up soon. But in the meantime, below are the letters sent today by the city’s taxicab administrator. They’re short. Each is only about a page and a half.

It’s not yet clear what the companies will do in response.
