If there is no legal definition to the terms, street hail and prearrangement, then how does one decide a definition that would allow for judgment? Does it allow the current definition by TLC just because they are the TLC, or does it call for further scrutiny of what really was happening before Uberís arrival?

The appeals court screwed us. They made up their own definition. I wonder who got to them before the hearing?

I listened to the hearing, but missed the ruling. When the one judge said he could call an FHV that was down his block and get them right away, the lawyer should have said that this was the case for him because he lived near the base, but not for those who don't. Now, with so many vehicles on the road, there is always an empty Uber steps away, so it is like a street hail.

So where does this leave us?   We need a decision.

Does the law provide for private (pre arranged) street hail (on demand), in other words private on demand service? There is really no way to have the debate without definitions being in the law. The same as if you tried to find out what any word meant, without a definition itís not possible. To determine the meaning of the word without a definition is to ask what it meant to people and have the argument in that way. In order to do that there must be, in legal terms, discovery, with a conclusion made and a jury trial if necessary.

I say again , if there is no definition in the law of streethailing or prearrangement, there is no way any judge or judges can rule without a trial , because the outcome of this case depends on their definitions and therefore they need to be uncovered.
