An appeals court in Paris this morning declined to ban Uber’s low-cost UberPop service, saying the company can continue to offer it until a constitutional court rules on a new law governing chauffeur licenses. The constitutional court is expected to rule in June, and the appeals court will reconvene in September. Days later, however, a spokesman for France’s Interior Ministry said the service would be illegal under the so-called Thévenoud Law, which went into effect on January 1st and requires all chauffeurs to hold professional licenses and insurance. Earlier this month, police raided the company’s Paris offices as part of an investigation into UberPop.
