Landmark litigation

Consumer Protection Agency imposes millionaire fines to ride-sharing apps

On July 2018 Mexico’s Consumer Protection Agency (PROFECO) imposed a millionaire fine to Easy Taxi (alongside with Cabify and UBER), for allegedly incurring in false advertising and violating consumer protection laws.

BlackBox’s litigators obtained a favorable ruling that annulled the Agency’s fine, from the Thirteenth Federal Administrative Court for Serious Penalties (Decimotercera Sala Regional Metropolitana y Auxiliar en Materia de Responsabilidades Administrativas Graves).

Mexico City launches new regulations for ride-sharing apps

On October 2018 the Mobility Agency of Mexico City (SEMOVI) issued regulations that required ride-hailing applications to purchase a standard taximeter for each of their cars (the “New Regulations”).

BlackBox, representing Cabify, prepared and filed a Constitutional Rights Review Process (Amparo) and obtained a favorable decree from Mexico’s Third Federal District Court. The aforesaid court ruled that the New Regulations would not be applicable to Cabify at all.
