U.S. Supreme Court will not hear OOIDA’s ELD case

Carriers subject to the mandate must comply by December 18, 2017

Posted June 12, 2017

The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association’s (OOIDA’s) bid to block the electronic logging device (ELD) mandate hit its final roadblock as the U.S. Supreme Court announced it will not hear the case. OOIDA had claimed that ELDs violate the Fourth Amendment (i.e., warrantless searches and seizures).

As a result, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit ruling to uphold the ELD regulations remains intact. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations for ELDs were published on December 16, 2015, with a compliance deadline of December 18, 2017. Under those rules, most drivers who currently use paper logs must use electronic logs by the December 18, 2017, deadline.
