D.Mass.: Airbnb has REP in nonpublic usage data for its rentals

“The Court finds Airbnb has a reasonable expectation of privacy in the nonpublic usage data for its listings—especially when paired with additional information such as the location of the unit—and that the City cannot lawfully require disclosure of that information without the protections guaranteed by the Fourth Amendment (protections which are not accounted for in the Ordinance).” Airbnb, Inc. v. City of Boston, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 74823 (D. Mass. May 3, 2019), following Airbnb, Inc. v. City of New York, Nos. 18 Civ. 7712 & 7742, 2019 WL 91990, at *8-20 (S.D.N.Y. Jan. 3, 2019).
