Uber Executives Won't Face Jail in France

French prosecutors asked a court to penalize two executives of Uber Technologies Inc. with fines and a ban on running companies, but declined to ask for prison time during the second day of a high-profile trial against the car-hailing company. In a criminal court in Paris’s Palais de Justice, Pierre-Dimitri Gore-Coty, head of Uber’s operations in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and Thibaud Simphal, its chief in France, face six charges on counts including illicit storage of personal data and operating a service that connects passengers with car-service drivers who have no professional licenses.
