Uber defies court order that blocked its service in Nevada until at least November 7

On Friday, October 24, Uber launched its popular ride-sharing service in Nevada; and, the same evening, the company was blocked from running its business in the state until at least November 7.

The move to bar Uber ride-sharing service in Nevada came after a Friday ruling by District Court Judge James Russell. The ruling was issued at the request of Nevada State Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto; apparently because of Uber's non-compliance with existing taxicab regulations in the state. A court hearing on the issue is scheduled to be held on November 6.

Meanwhile, as per reports, Uber apparently defied the court order; and its drivers continued offering rides to customers all across Las Vegas on Saturday.

About Uber's defiance of the court order, the company's attorney David Campbell said that he is challenging the court order which prevents Uber drivers from providing their ride-sharing service in the state until November 7.

Asserting that Uber was "given no opportunity to be heard despite the fact that the attorney general knew I was representing Uber and no notice was given," Campbell - challenging the court order - said: "It is a requirement to give such notice and the Supreme Court declared an issue to be void if no notice is given."
