A federal appellate court has upheld the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s electronic logging device mandate, which now remains on track to go into effect starting on Dec. 18, 2017.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit rejected the argument of the Owner Operator Independent Drivers Association, which had sued to throw out the rule on the grounds that it would violate drivers’ rights to privacy under the Fourth Amendment.

In denying OOIDA’s petition for judicial review, the court stated that it found that the ELD rule is “not arbitrary or capricious, nor does it violate the Fourth Amendment.”
