Uber’s troubles with both state and national governments continues. First it dropped a post two days ago stating that it was ceasing operations in Nevada as it tried to gain permission to operate in that state. Now it’s waiting for hear from the courts about its future in France.
The Wall Street Journal reports that Uber is arguing in the French court that a new law that would ban the service is unconstitutional. The French government and private taxi firms argue that Uber’s use of unregulated drivers is an unfair competitive advantage because it doesn’t adhere to same rules and regulations as the established industry.
It’s the same basic arguments that have plagued Uber since its inception. A verdict in the case will be handed down on December 12.
