NEW YORK CITY - A court gives city new cabs a month-long reprieve on going green, as a lawsuit to stop the switch is pending.

A Manhattan federal judge has delayed the mandate that all new cabs get 25 miles per gallon from October 1st to November 1st.

This, as the court shifts through litigation from the Metropolitan Taxicab Board of Trade. The lawsuit claims that hybrid fuel-efficient vehicles were not built to withstand the heavy use that city cabs endure, and are unsafe for use in city streets.

The court will here arguments next month, and is expected to issue an injunction.

NY1 has reached out to the Taxi and Limousine Commission but have not heard back.
