Uber banned from operating in Czech Republic’s number 2 city

A court has once again banned Uber from operating in Brno, the Czech Republic’s second-largest city.

It’s the latest legal setback for the ride-sharing service, which is already banned in other European cities.
The Brno regional court first banned Uber in April after a legal complaint supported by the city. Brno City Hall said it was not against new taxi services provided they abided with the laws. Uber had argued it is not a common taxi company but the court ruled that it is.
Uber appealed that ruling and an appeals court suspended it last month for procedural reasons.
In the verdict published Wednesday, the Brno court banned Uber again unless it complies with the existing rules for taxi services.
Uber can launch another appeal.
