FRANCE SAYS NO WAY Another European setback for Uber
Posted on 09/24/2015 | About France
France's Constitutional Court upheld a national law that banned one of Uber Technologies' car services that relies on non-professional drivers using their own vehicles, dealing another setback to the company in Europe.
Uber had challenged the legality of a law passed by the French government last year, which banned its so-called UberPOP service and updated rules on how taxi companies and chauffeured cars could compete.
"The Constitutional Court rejects all the arguments raised by the company and declares the contested parts of the law as conforming with the Constitution," the court said.
