Second Indian city bans Uber

Hyderabad, India, banned the Uber cab service on Wednesday. The announcement comes two days after New Delhi's municipal government banned Uber.

T. Raghunath, Hyderabad's joint transport commissioner, told The Times of India that Uber's services in the city were illegal, as they were in Delhi. Raghunath noted that Uber apparently didn't have permission from the Regional Transport Authority to operate in the city.

Uber isn't doing so well in the U.S., either: On Tuesday, prosecutors in San Francisco and Los Angeles sued Uber for making "false and misleading statements" about background checks for drivers. Spain and Thailand also ordered Uber to cease operating this week.
