Airbnb files lawsuit against New York

Airbnb is officially on bad terms with New York. 

The home-sharing company filed a lawsuit Friday against city and state parties after New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law a bill that imposes hefty fines on anyone who posts a technically illegal short-term rental on Airbnb. 

Airbnb hosts who advertise apartments on Airbnb that violate another law that bans rentals of whole apartments in shared buildings for fewer than 30 days can be fined as much as $7,500. 

Airbnb threatened a lawsuit in September over the bill, and the company followed through on its promise Friday. A Hail Mary effort by Airbnb to stop Cuomo from signing the law this week by promising major changes in New York City wasn’t enough.
