The Supreme Court will have to decide whether Trondheim Municipality can refuse electric scooters rentals in the city. So far, the Municipality has lost in court twice.
Trondheim has previously lost the battle to prevent the electric scooter supplier Rydes’ right to conduct business in the city both in the district court and in the court of appeal, Rett24 writes.
The claim for a temporary injunction on the company’s use of public land for e-scooter parking was rejected because the court held that Trondheim had no legal basis in the law to demand such a ban.
But around the same time as the Frostating Court of Appeal’s ruling came in May, the Norwegian parliament (Storting) passed a new law that gives Norwegian municipalities authority to regulate electric scooter activities.
The Supreme Court will now decide whether Ryde has the right to place and run commercial e-scooter rentals on Trondheim Municipality’s property without the Municipality’s consent.
