Uber to appeal against nationwide German injunction

Tuesday 2 September 2014 | 11:30 CET | News
Uber said it will appeal against an injunction forbidding it from operating anywhere in Germany, according to newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) on its website. Frankfurt District Court has enforced the interim injunction, preventing the taxi application operator from running anywhere in the country. Breaches could be penalised by fines of up to EUR 250,000 per trip. The judged ruled that the application breaches the passenger transport law, which requires taxi drivers to have a permit.
