The Wall Street Journal: Uber appeals London’s decision to revoke Its license

LONDON—Uber Technologies Inc. on Friday formally appealed the London transportation authority’s decision to revoke its license to operate in the British capital, a move that allows the ride-hailing company to continue working in the city until a final decision is made.

A judge will hear arguments from Uber and the authority, Transport for London, before making make a decision. The process could take months.

Transport for London on Sept. 22 said it wouldn’t renew Uber’s license, which was set to expire on Sept. 30. It said Uber’s “approach and conduct demonstrate a lack of corporate responsibility” in several areas, such as background checks for drivers and the reporting of serious crimes.
