Prosecutors in two major California cities have teamed up to sue Uber -- the company that allows you to hitch a ride by ordering one through an app on your phone.

FOX News Radio's Jessica Rosenthal reports:

District attorneys in LA and San Francisco are suing Uber. They say the tech company lied -- misrepresented how it does background checks on drivers, lied about how fees are used, operated at airports even though they're not supposed to, and used the app to calculate fares without getting that tech approved through the state, to ensure the measurement formula was fair.

Uber says in a statement that California lawmakers feel they're safe and that they met with the DA's about many of these complaints and will continue discussions with them. Separately, city officials in Portland, Oregon sued Uber for failing to comply with local regulations. And, recent legal rulings means Uber is being banned in Spain and Thailand.
