Uber request to take drivers' rights case directly to top UK court rejected


Mon, 04 Dec 2017

Uber's request to take its appeal to overturn a ruling over drivers' rights directly to the UK's highest court, skipping the Court of Appeal, has been rejected. The ride hailing company had sought to take the case straight to the Supreme Court "in order that [it] can be resolved sooner rather than later". However, according to a union representing the drivers, Uber's application was rejected, meaning the Court of Appeal will now hear the case first.
