MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee is suing a company whose business model of renting motorized scooters has stirred outrage from public officials in two dozen American cities, which argue the scooters are unsafe and a nuisance because they’re left on sidewalks after riders are done with them. Milwaukee will ask a judge Friday to order California-based Bird Rides Inc. to stop operating in the city and pay $200 in fines for every scooter they rented since arriving in the city on June 27. The legal dispute is the latest Bird has faced since they began placing hundreds of scooters around the country two months ago, often without permission. In some cases, Bird has continued operations even after cities have sent them cease-and-desist letters, as was the case in Milwaukee before officials sued. By Ivan Moreno.
