Here is an update on my appeal of a lawsuit seeking damages against Airbnb for an unfair delisting.
In March, the Small Claims judge ruled that my due process rights were violated, and ordered a defamatory review taken down on penalty of contempt of court. But she found that she could not award the damages I sought due to Airbnb’s Terms of Service, which do not allow for damages in the U.S. and elsewhere. Only in the EU are damages permitted.
Here is the May appeal, it’s something of a lovefest with the judge on some levels.
Earlier threads in March and February respectively:
And finally, a huge thanks to @FunWithJim and @rossh who I think were the main parties (pls advise if I missed someone) who pointed out that the ToS in the European Union DO make Airbnb liable for damages, which really intrigued the judge in my case and hopefully will pry the lid off getting Airbnb’s U.S. contract changed, if either myself at the Md Court of Appeals or someone else in another state can get traction on this matter.
