Federal Court Permits Landlord's Constitutional Challenge to "Airbnb Law" to Go Forward
LVT Number: #29727
Landlord sued the city, claiming that New York Multiple Dwelling Law Section 121, enacted on Oct. 21, 2016, as well as NYC Admin. Code 27-287.1, referred to as the "Airbnb Law," were unconstitutionally vague, facially and as applied to landlord, in violation of the First Amendment and the Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The law prohibits advertising the use of class A multiple dwellings for nonpermanent residence purposes.
