Marfil v. City of New Braunfels
- Date Filed
- Current Court
- 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals
Several homeowners in New Braunfels, Texas are challenging the city's ban on short-term rentals. However, the lower court dismissed their case without ever allowing them to dispute the government's rationale for the ban.
IJ's amicus brief, which looks to build off its victory in St. Joseph Abbey v. Castille, argues that the homeowners challenging the city's ban on short-term rentals deserve their day in court to present evidence that the law is unconstitutional.
