An interesting case was filed yesterday in the Davidson County Circuit Court. The lawsuit, styled Rachel Anderson and P.J. Anderson v. The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County, Davidson County Circuit Court No. 15C3212, attacks Nashville’s regulations on Airbnb.com listings.
A copy of the Complaint can be found here.
Essentially, the Plaintiffs allege that the ordinances violate their constitutional due process and equal protection rights by imposing an arbitrary interference and limits on their operation of their residence as a rental property on the short-term rental site Airbnb.com.
It’s a strange lawsuit, with a lot of details alleged. It was filed by the in-house counsel at the Beacon Center of Tennessee.
