Uber in court victory in Connecticut

Text size Aa Aa

Uber has tasted victory in the courts in the US. The San Francisco-based company which lets customers call vehicles through a smart phone application can carry on trading in the state of Connecticut.

Fifteen taxi and limousine companies in the state went to court in a bid to stop the ride-sharing Uber doing business.

But the judge threw the lawsuit out ruling the plaintiffs failed to show that Uber competed unfairly, tried to lure away their drivers, or misrepresented its services fares and drivers’ insurance coverage to passengers.

Neither party has commented on the outcome of the case.
