Ninth Circuit Declines to Reconsider Challenge to Santa Monica’s Short-Term Vacation Rental Ordinance

August 26, 2019
On Aug. 16, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals declined a request by Homeaway.com and Airbnb to reconsider its March decision where it ruled in favor of Santa Monica’s short-term vacation rental ordinance.
 
In its March opinion, the Court rejected arguments by Homeaway.com and Airbnb that the ordinance violated the Communications Decency Act of 1996 and the First Amendment. More information regarding the Court’s decision can be found in the League’s CA Cities Advocate news article.
 
As is typical, the Court did not explain the basis for its denial to reconsider the decision. This concludes the case in the Ninth Circuit and Homeaway.com and Airbnb have 90 days in which to request review by the United States Supreme Court.
