New York Attorney General to subpoena Airbnb on sublets: NY Post

(Reuters) - New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is set to subpoena online home-rental marketplace Airbnb seeking records to identify users who are illegally renting out apartments, the New York Post reported citing sources.

The affidavit, which is expected to be filed in court on Monday by the AG's office, shows 64 percent of Airbnb's 19,500-plus offerings for January 31 cover an "entire apartment," the NY Post said. State prosecutors issued a subpoena in October after failing to obtain the records, despite several rounds of negotiations with Airbnb lawyers.  More »
