Joint Statement By The Office Of The Attorney General And Airbnb

NEW YORK – The following statement was issued today by Janet Sabel, First Deputy Attorney General of Affirmative Litigation for Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman, and Darren Weingard, Deputy General Counsel of Airbnb:

“Airbnb and the Office of the Attorney General have worked tirelessly over the past six months to come to an agreement that appropriately balances Attorney General Schneiderman’s commitment to protecting New York’s residents and tourists from illegal hotels with Airbnb’s concerns about the privacy of thousands of other hosts. The arrangement we have reached today for compliance with the OAG subpoena strikes this balance.”
