European Court of Justice Gets Uber Case from Spain

A Spanish judge has asked Europe's top court if online taxi-hailing app Uber is a "mere transport service" or a digital service, as the U.S. start-up claims, in a case that could set a precedent for legal battles across the continent. A judge in Barcelona has referred a case brought by the city's main taxi operator against Uber towards the end of last year to the European Court of Justice (ECJ) in Luxembourg, an Uber executive said.
