A Nashville judge ruled today that the city's ordinance regulating short-term rentals such as Airbnbs is vague and thus unconstitutional, delivering a blow to the city's attempt to manage the fast-growing alternative to hotels.
The conservative think-tank Beacon Center of Tennessee filed a lawsuit in August 2015 on behalf of Salemtown residents P.J. and Rachel Anderson, arguing the ordinance infringed on their rights as homeowners.
Lawyers gathered before Circuit Judge Kelvin Jones on Friday because Metro had asked the judge to end the case, and grant what is called summary judgment, saying there was no merit to the claims in the lawsuit. The hearing lasted just over two hours.
I guess we have the conservative think tank to thank for this ruling!!
