Delivery apps sued over “monopoly power”

A new lawsuit filed against Grubhub, DoorDash, Uber Eats, and Postmates alleges that the delivery platforms have “monopoly power” over restaurants and consumers, and that they’re using that power to charge exorbitant commission fees. USA Today reports that the restaurant-plaintiffs are arguing these commissions amount to a violation of antitrust laws. The suit, which is unrelated to the pandemic, comes as San Francisco caps commissions for food delivery apps at 15 percent and New York regulators are considering a similar policy.
