The state’s highest court says Atlanta taxicab drivers aren’t entitled to compensation for losing their exclusive rights to pick up passengers.

On Monday, the Supreme Court of Georgia sided with a lower court’s decision to dismiss a case brought by five city taxicab drivers.

They argued they had paid lots of money to follow regulations that don’t apply to drivers for ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft.
