Supreme Court Will Not Hear OOIDA’s ELD Lawsuit

In April, the Owner Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA) asked the Supreme Court to reevaluate a lower court ruling to maintain the ELD Mandate, stating that the rule violates the Fourth Amendment.

As reported by Commercial Carrier Journal today, the highest court has declined to hear OOIDA’s case. According to CCJ, the Supreme Court’s decision “effectively ends OOIDA’s court challenge. “This news means there should be no further actions that can occur in order to overturn the December 18, 2017 compliance deadline for the ELD Mandate.

Carriers that have been waiting for the rule to be overturned should now take the necessary steps to equip their vehicles with compliant electronic logging devices before the December deadline.
