The lawsuit filed by DoorDash  (DASH) - Get DoorDash Report argues that while the delivery app does share information with payment processors and third-party marketers, sharing customer data with restaurants would force the company to hand over "trade secrets" to restaurants.

Cities including New York City have attempted to help restaurants that have complained about the high fees collected by delivery services by placing a temporary cap on those fees.

But San Francisco-based DoorDash claims in its lawsuit that the new law requiring the sharing of customer data would be a 'shocking and invasive intrusion of consumers' privacy" and a "free-ride" for restaurants giving them a competitive advantage.

This is the second lawsuit filed by Door Dash this month after Grubhub  (GRUB) - Get Grubhub, Inc. Report and Uber Eats  (UBER) - Get Uber Technologies, Inc. Report along with DoorDash filed a lawsuit against New York City on September 10th over a law making permanent the cap on fees to restaurants which have cost the delivery service companies millions of dollars this year.
