Uber to continue in Brussels despite ban by courtFriday, 04 January 2019 17:13
The ruling applies in all of Brussels 19 communes, but not elsewhere. However it does not apply to customers using the company to travel from, say, Brussels Airport in Zaventem into the city centre, or indeed from Charleroi airport or elsewhere outside the city-region’s boundaries.
Despite the suggestion by French-speaking news media that the judgement was handed down by the commercial court’s Dutch-language section, the ruling had effect in all of the region. Decisions by the French-speaking court would be equally applicable region-wide. The choice of court is made by the applicant in a case, but does affect its legal effect.
However in its reaction, Uber said the judgement was not clear in its distinction between UberX and UberPOP, which the company suspended in 2015, following another court judgement. The ruling offered no reason, company lawyers said, to suspend the activities of UberX.
The company’s lawyer said the final decision would be left to the court of appeal.
