Taxi booking app Uber fined $7.3m in california

Taxi booking app Uber has been fined $7.3m in California for not giving regulators enough information about its service and operations.

A judge at the California Public Utilities Commission - the regulator that allows the company to operate in the state - said Uber has not filed all the reports required by the body.

It was accused of withholding details on incidents such as accidents.

Uber has been involved in several legal battles around the world over its operations.

Uber has defended its operations in the state by saying it has given enough information to the commission.

It has been said that after the ruling the firm would appeal against the decision.

The company has up to 30 days to appeal before its licence to operate in California is suspended.
