October 28, 2014

Nevada drivers with the ridesharing company Uber are picking up passengers despite a judge’s order blocking the rides until at least until Nov. 7.

Nevada Taxicab Authority spokeswoman Teri Williams told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that at least one Uber driver was cited Saturday for violating Nevada laws licensing car services.

Another 10 drivers were cited statewide on Friday.

The state attorney general sought a temporary order blocking Uber Friday afternoon after the company launched service in Nevada earlier that day.

Nevada’s highly regulated and influential taxi industry is battling Uber, which contends it’s not a taxi service but a technology company connecting drivers and passengers.

A court hearing on the issue is set for Nov. 6.
