Airbnb, Inc. v. City of New York

In effort to crack down on short-term home rentals, NYC officials pass ordinance requiring Airbnb and HomeAway to turn over “breathtaking” amount of data to the authorities each month, including rental hosts’ names, addresses, pricing, and advertisements—irrespective of whether there is cause to suspect a host is violating relevant health and safety laws. Southern District of New York: Could be the law violates the Fourth Amendment. No enforcing it while the suit proceeds. (More via SDNY Blog.)
