The long and winding road for Uber just took another twist and turn. London's transit authority has dropped plans to take the controversial e-hailing app to court -- because the courts are busy with individual Uber drivers.

Uber is an app that allows you to call a taxi or private hire vehicle to your location from your smartphone. When you arrive at your destination, you pay through the app too with no cash changing hands. Operating in more than 100 cities in 37 countries, Uber has proved enormously controversial with cabbies around the world, with many blockading streets in a worldwide protest last month.
