OOIDA will petition for a rehearing of a court decision regarding the lawsuit against a government mandate to electronically track commercial truck drivers.
Last month, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit ruled against OOIDA in the ELD challenge. OOIDA has until December 15th, 2016, to file a petition asking the full court to hear the case. In the October ruling, just three of the Court's thirteen judges heard the case. OOIDA Executive Vice President Todd Spencer commented, "It may have just been that the luck of the draw was not on our side. The issues we raised are really important issues. It seemed like they dismissed the same issues the judges took pretty seriously just five years ago,” noting the Court's decision to vacate FMCSA’s 2010 attempt at an ELD mandate.
