Last week, I wrote about the DC Taxi Commission’s ongoing battle with Uber, the iPhone-based black car service. I noted in passing that the DC Taxi Commission’s claims that there have been complaints about Uber’s failure to offer a printed receipt. I was skeptical about how prevalent these complaints were . . . but apparently, not skeptical enough. Nathaniel Heller filed a FOIA request to find out how many complaints the commission had received about Uber, and the answer he got was . . . er . . . none:
