An Airbnb host who had her permit revoked after Metro Codes found that it errantly issued more than 100 to property owners who did not meet certain requirements for short-term rentals is now suing the Metro Nashville government, The Tennessean reports. The rule in question stipulates that residential property owners in two-family units must live in one of the units and own both properties in order to operate as a short-term rental. Barbara Culligan argues that the revocation "will cause irreparable harm, damage to goodwill, and harm for which money damage cannot fully and adequately compensate." Her attorney is seeking a temporary injunction to halt the cancellation.
