French Appeals Court Orders Uber to Pay Fine

A French appeals court ordered Uber Technologies Inc. to pay a €150,000 fine, the latest flare-up in an ongoing conflict between the car-hailing company and the French government. The Paris Court of Appeals rejected Uber’s challenge to a 2014 criminal-court decision that had found the company guilty of deceptive commercial practices in its advertising for a now-shuttered service that used drivers without professional licenses.
