Challenge of Chicago’s Shared Housing Ordinance one of 5 legal case studies


Illinois REALTORS® can learn from the analysis of five legal case studies, including a failed challenge to Chicago’s Shared Housing Ordinance.

Lisa Harms Hartzler, Sorling Northrup Attorneys, provides the analysis of all five cases in the May issue of Designated REALTOR® Legal News.

In the case regarding the Shared Housing Ordinance, federal court declined to issue a preliminary injunction against Chicago’s ordinance because plaintiffs (Airbnb, VRBO, HomeAway and city residents) failed to show their First Amendment free speech rights were violated and that the ordinance was void for vagueness under the Due Process Clause, wrote Hartzler.
