A group of Airbnb hosts suing the city of Nashville say Mayor David Briley's administration violated a court order by trying to stop them from renting their homes out online, The Tennessean reports. During a hearing today, attorneys for some of the hosts said the city should be held in contempt of court. Dozens of hosts sued in January after the city tried to revoke their short-term rental permits, which were issued by mistake. On Feb. 11, a judge signed an agreed order saying Metro must allow the hosts to continue renting their homes until the legal matter was settled. But on Feb. 15, Metro sent the hosts letters saying their permits were revoked, and that "the law requires you to immediately cease operations as a short-term rental."
