OOIDA keeps Indiana Toll Road lawsuit alive with petition for rehearing

Determined to fight against a practice it calls unconstitutional, the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association is asking for a rehearing in its Indiana Toll Road lawsuit.

On March 23, OOIDA filed a petition asking for the full Seventh Circuit federal appeals court to rehear its case. On March 9, a three-judge panel of the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed an Indiana federal district court’s ruling dismissing OOIDA’s lawsuit. The panel found that the tolls are not subject to Commerce Clause restrictions.
