It was revealed yesterday that the Licensed Taxi Drivers’ Association has called on the Lord Chief Justice to investigate accusations of bias in the decisions of Chief Magistrate Emma Arbuthnot around Uber.
From trade sources, TaxiPoint have acquired the full letter sent to the Royal Courts detailing the need for action.
Trade sources have also highlighted that there are preliminary discussions with regulators Transport for London in regards to a Judicial Review surrounding the London Uber licence appeal case.
Steve McNamara, General Secretary of the LTDA, said yesterday: “It’s appalling that Chief Magistrate Emma Arbuthnot has been involved in so many cases which have backed Uber, without disclosing her links to the company. “We want the Lord Chief Justice to investigate as a matter of urgency to restore faith in our legal system.”
