A Manhattan federal judge halted Monday New York's latest attempt to force yellow taxis to go green by using fuel-efficient hybrids. The Metropolitan Taxicab Board of Trade successfully argued that requiring cabbies to drive hybrids would force owners to replace their current fleets with eco-friendly cars and illegally preempt federal emissions laws.
