After Uber was banned in London earlier this year, the company is looking to go to court to defend it's right to operate in London. Transport for London claimed they deemed Uber unfit to be holding a private hire operator license due to the lack of care with which they deal with reported crimes, and the lack of a proper process employed to do background checks on potential drivers.

Uber did apply for a bid in September but was rejected. The upcoming appeal will be for mainly admin purposes to set up a date for a full hearing in the new year. The new CEO, Dara Khosrowshahi, has made several apologies to the general public on behalf of the company but is also aware that changes must be made to ensure that Uber is successful in it's come back.

Uber is no stranger to controversy – a widespread protest by other taxi services erupted as their business waned, plus, there have also been countless criminal investigations into the company including one that has been opened up after Khosrowshahi took over as CEO.

Khosrowshahi plans to review Uber's culture from top to bottom to try make up for a less than successful year as their ban in London shakes the ranks of their reputation all over the world.
