A New York judge dismissed a lawsuit on Wednesday filed by ride-hailing companies Lyft challenging a rule for a minimum driver wage the city approved last year, according to the New York Daily News.

Why it matters: The rules New York City passed were notable as ride-hailing companies have historically resisted such regulation. While Lyft and Juno objected to the driver minimum wage, rival Uber filed a suit over the new vehicle cap imposed.

Editor's note: The story has been corrected to show that Juno sued along with Lyft (not Via).
