Court suspended ruling that blocked the use of Uber in Italy

News Hour:

A Rome court on Friday suspended a lower court ruling that had blocked the use of smartphone apps for Uber cars in Italy.

The court accepted an appeal by Uber against the first ruling, made a week ago, which said Uber could not use its Black, Lux, Suv, X, XL, Select and Van phone applications nor could it promote or advertise its services in Italy, reports Reuters.

The first court had ruled in favor of a suit filed by Italy’s major traditional taxi associations, taking the view that the apps constituted unfair competition.

Italy’s two main consumer groups, Codacons and UNC, welcomed the latest ruling, saying it gave people more choice.
