Taxi group wins right to join Uber’s London license appeal case

A taxi association will be able to participate in Uber’s appeal against the loss of its operating license in the British capital city set to be heard in full from July 6, a British judge decided on Thursday. The Licensed Taxi Drivers’ Association will be an interested party in the case, giving it access to documents and meaning it could make submissions, Chief Magistrate of England and Wales Emma Arbuthnot ruled. Transport for London (TfL) in November refused a renewal request from the Silicon Valley-based company to keep operating in one of its most important markets, citing safety failures.
