    Fort Worth Denies Allegations in Short-Term Rental Suit, Asks Judge to Dismiss All Claims

    The city of Fort Worth denies the allegations published in a lawsuit filed by short-term rental operators (STRs) last month. A suit brought in June by over 100 plaintiffs argues that the city is violating property rights, discriminating against homeowners who operate STRs, violating the Zoning Enabling Act, and retroactively regulating settled property rights. The lawsuit challenges the city’s recently amended STR ordinance, creating stricter rules for rentals operating legally in commercial and mixed-use areas and essentially banning short-term rentals in residential areas. In a July 14 filing, the city asked the 236th Judicial District Court to dismiss all claims against the city.
