Court in Berlin Lifts City's Ban on Uber

Uber, the smartphone-based car service, won a reprieve when a local court in Berlin suspended a ban from the city’s authorities, who had ruled that Uber did not comply with passenger safety standards. The court will now weigh whether Uber, which has been valued at roughly $17 billion and operates in more than 100 cities in 36 countries, can legally operate in the German capital.
