"On what basis could they challenge the law in court?"

Uber claims it is not covered by the law. In its SEC paperwork, it describes drivers as customers: people using its app marketplace to sell rides to others.

This is partly how it plans to challenge the law: insist its operation doesn't fall under the law, then fight to ensure it does not fall under the law.
