Uber Blocked From Operating in Nevada Pending Regulator Case

Updated on

Uber Technologies Inc. was blocked from operating in Nevada by a judge in Reno, after regulators succeeded in getting the case taken from a judge in Las Vegas who had refused the halt the mobile car-booking service.

Nevada District Court Judge Scott Freeman yesterday granted the state’s request to halt Uber’s operations pending the outcome of a lawsuit over whether the business is operating legally. The Nevada Transportation Authority alleges Uber, which began service in the state last month, doesn’t have the required license to transport passengers.
