Regulators Want Uber Suspended in California and Fined $7.3 Million
The ride-hailing giant Uber should be fined $7.3 million and suspended from operating in California because its parent company did not comply with state laws, a state administrative judge said Wednesday.
Uber’s parent company has refused to provide data on operational data that is required under the 2013 law that legalized ride-hailing firms, the California Public Utilities Commission judge said in a decision issued Wednesday afternoon.
Uber’s license to operate in California will be suspended in 30 days, unless the company files an appeal or a CPUC commissioner requests a review. The ban will remain in effect until Uber “complies fully with the outstanding requirements,” chief administrative law judge Karen V. Clopton wrote.
In a statement, an Uber spokeswoman called the decision “deeply disappointing.”
