Airbnb Records of Uncompleted Reservations Must Be Given to NYC
LVT Number: #30723
In a lawsuit against Airbnb concerning unlawful short-term rentals where the Mayor's Office of Special Enforcement (OSE) issued subpoenas, NYC sought user records of individuals whose postings for certain buildings on Airbnb's website didn't result in completed reservations. Airbnb objected to producing the records, claiming that would be an unwarranted invasion of its users' privacy rights.
