New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has scored a major victory in his quest to investigate Airbnb hosts who are breaking state law. Schneiderman and the roomsharing startup issued a joint statement Wednesday announcing they reached an agreement for Airbnb to hand over host records to the attorney general's office so he can attempt to identify users who are violating a 2010 New York law that prohibits renters from subletting entire apartments for less than 30 days at a time.
