Hawaii – A lawsuit has been filed against Lihue Airport by a group of cab drivers alleging retaliation by airport management. As reported by The Garden Island, the suit claims that transportation providers that are unregulated are failing to follow protocol in providing rides to arriving passengers.

The plaintiffs in the case include Gregory Disilvestri (635-TAXI); William Doherty, Wayne Hori (South Shore Taxi); and North Shore Cab Company, which are licensed to provide services to the airport.

Honolulu attorney, Mitchell S. Wong, who represents the plaintiffs say they have suffered business losses as a result of the unregulated providers cutting in line.

The complaint is quoted as reading, “The foregoing system allowed for the fair and reasonable distribution of airport passenger and visitor fares among all of the taxi services…Now, however, destination management companies — which are not subject to Hawaii state regulation as common carriers — are providing transportation services to airport passengers and visitors at the Lihue Airport.”

The lawsuit was filed in 5th Circuit Court against the Department of Transportation and Airports Division.
