Short-term Rental Ban Blocked; Judge Upholds Property Rights
Hawaii Together, with host Keli'i Akina and guest Gregory Kugle, Oct 25, 2022
Honolulu’s new ordinance limiting short-term rentals to a minimum of 90 days has been blocked by US District Court Judge Derrick Watson, who issued a preliminary injunction on Oct. 13.
Gregory Kugle, an attorney with Damon Key Leong Kupchak Hastert, who represents the Hawaii Legal Short-term Rental Alliance, talks about the case on Hawaii Together with host Keli‘i Akina, who also is president and CEO of the Grassroot Institute of Hawaii.
Part of the discussion covers a warning letter Kugle sent Oct. 21 to Honolulu officials about how they should be cautious that their publicized intent to 'aggressively' enforce the law doesn’t violate the judge’s order.
