A company driver is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to get involved in the electronic logging device debate.
The Supreme Court is scheduled to issue a decision Thursday, May 12, on whether it may take up the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association’s suit against the DOT and its December 2015-published electronic logging device mandate once a decision has been issued by a lower court.
A petition was filed in April with the Supreme Court by truck driver William B. Trescott, a company driver for Swift. Trescott also filed earlier this year to intervene in the lawsuit on behalf of the OOIDA and truckers Richard Pingel and Mark Elrod, the two other plaintiffs suing the DOT and its Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration over the ELD mandate. The court has not yet responded to Trescott’s request to intervene in the lawsuit.
