Houston Issues “Cease & Desist” to Stop Citizens Communicating With Their Government
Clearly the first amendment trumps the city's cease and desist order.


City officials decry “excessive number of e-mails”

The City of Houston has issued a “cease and desist” order to prevent its own citizens from contacting their government in order to lobby for the introduction of Uber, a mobile phone-enabled taxi ordering service.

Attempting to tackle the problem of city officials bowing to the demands of taxi/limo companies who fear the threat of competition that Uber will bring, the company invited Houston residents to fill in a petition and send it to city managers encouraging them to consider the introduction of Uber’s service.

The city of Houston responded by issuing a cease and desist order demanding that Uber stop asking Houston residents to contact their own elected representatives.

I wonder if Uber has some sort of an e-mail generator on their site that creates an email and sends it to the city if someone fills out a form. Then maybe a demand to "kill it" is a reasonable one.

On the other hand, it doesn't take a rocket-scientist to block incoming mail from that server's address and/or to filter all of it right into the big-bucket. Certainly cheaper than a lawyer-letter.
