ATA and OOIDA Challenge on EOBR Ruling


The American Trucking Association filed an amicus (friend of the court) brief on Feb. 24 with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit in support of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s defense of electronic logging devices.

FMCSA’s rules governing the voluntary use of electronic logging devices to record hours-of-service data are being challenged the Owner-Operator Independent Driver Association. OOIDA was successful in a lawsuit seeking to overturn the agency’s proposal to mandate electronic logging for carriers with egregious hours-of-service violations.

Following that decision, OOIDA argued that there is “no longer any provision in the rules for the adoption of a device called an ‘EOBR,'” even on a voluntary basis.
