US Supreme Court Declines to Hear Lawsuit Against ELDs

The US Supreme Court will not hear OOIDA’s lawsuit against the DOT’s ELD mandate, effectively ending the court bid to overturn the impeding regulation.

The Supreme Court’s June 12 decision leaves in place a lower court ruling upholding the mandate and its Dec. 18 compliance deadline.

The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association, which spearheaded the lawsuit, says it will continue to press the issue in Congress.

The American Trucking Associations welcomed the Court’s decision.

“We are pleased to see that the Supreme Court will not interfere with the implementation of this important, and Congressionally mandated, safety rule. We will continue to support FMCSA as they work toward the December deadline for electronic logging devices and urge them to provide certainty to the industry about when and how to comply with this rule by continuing to move toward implementing this regulation on schedule.”
