OOIDA’s most recent ELD challenge denied by Appeals Court

Association prepares its case for Supreme Court

Posted January 13, 2017

The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA) was denied a rehearing of its lawsuit challenging the electronic logging device (ELD) mandate.

All judges on the original panel voted to deny the petition that was filed by OOIDA on December 14, 2016, according to an order issued by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit on January 12, 2017.

Still looking for options

OOIDA has indicated it is not ready to give up its challenge to the ELD mandate. The Association is preparing for an appeal to the Supreme Court. It is also reaching out to Congress. Specifically, it has asked its members, as constituents, to reach out to the House Freedom Caucus in hopes of a repeal of the rule under the new Administration. The Caucus is comprised of conservative members of the U.S. House of Representatives.
