Uber Ride Sharing Wins Victory In Germany

BERLIN (AP) – A court in Germany has lifted an emergency injunction that banned the ridesharing service Uber from operating anywhere in the country.

The Frankfurt state court ruled Tuesday that the urgent measures taxi drivers won against their upstart rival last month weren’t warranted.

The move means Uber can continue operating, though taxi associations have indicated they plan to appeal the decision and seek a full hearing of the suit.

Taxi associations accuse Uber of allowing its drivers to skirt safety and insurance regulations that conventional cabs have to abide by.

The San Francisco-based company has battled stiff opposition to its business model in several European countries and recently hired David Plouffe, a former adviser to President Barack Obama, as its senior vice president of policy and strategy.
