Nashville Government Found in Contempt Over Airbnb Move

Metro Nashville government was found guilty of contempt of court on Wednesday for continuing to send violation notices to short-term rental operators who are appealing the city's revocation of their permits, the Tennessean reports. Chancellor Ellen Hobbs Lyle ruled in favor of seven plaintiffs fighting the city in Chancery Court to hold onto their Airbnb permits on Wednesday. She said the city should not have continued to try to stop them from operating until the court decided whether they have the right to rent their properties. The city was ordered to pay attorney fees and costs to the plaintiffs.
