OOIDA asks Supreme Court to consider ELD debate

Association claims ELD mandate violates Fourth Amendment rights

Posted April 14, 2017

The U.S. Supreme Court is being asked by the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA) to review the group’s lawsuit that challenges the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA’s) final rule requiring the use of electronic logging devices (ELDs).

Previously, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit ruled against OOIDA in its lawsuit against FMCSA. OOIDA’s petition asks the U.S. Supreme Court to reconsider the lower court’s decision.

OOIDA believes the ELD mandate is the equivalent of warrantless surveillance and violates Fourth Amendment rights.
