Judge delays taxi rules in Pr. Geo's
A Prince George's County Circuit Court judge Wednesday ordered the county to temporarily halt new taxi regulations the County Council passed last month after cab company owners challenged the measure in court, The Gazette reports.
The 10-day restraining order by Judge Julia Weatherly gives the county until Oct. 7 to prepare for another hearing on the regulations, which are supported by independent cab drivers but opposed by three companies who filed a lawsuit against the bill Monday.
The new regulations were set to begin Friday, but the most contested portion of the changes is a plan to double the number of taxi permits, which currently sits at 775. A lottery to give away 392 of the new taxi certificates is planned in November.
