FMCSA waives right to file brief in ELD case, OOIDA reports

U.S. Supreme Court yet to announce whether it will hear the case

Posted May 17, 2017

The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association’s (OOIDA’s) attempt to block the electronic logging device (ELD) mandate is once again making headlines.

According to Land Line — OOIDA’s official publication — the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has waived its right to file a brief to challenge a petition by the association to have its case heard by the U.S. Supreme Court. OOIDA is asking the court to review a ruling made by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit in October 2016. OOIDA contends that ELDs violate the Fourth Amendment (warrantless searches and seizures).

The Office of Public Affairs for the FMCSA has been contacted by J. J. Keller & Associates. At this time, the agency has not offered comment.

J. J. Keller is monitoring the situation and will report more details as they become available.
