Expedia case moved to Federal Court, Columbus files motion

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -  The legal battle between the city of Columbus and online travel giant Expedia is now in the hands of a federal judge. 

Attorneys for Expedia filed what's called "A Notice of Removal" earlier this week to get the case out of Superior Court.

It's the third time the case has been moved to Federal Court.

Meanwhile, attorneys representing the city filed a motion Friday to get the case back to Superior Court where they hope a trial date will be set.

The legal wrangling started more than five years ago and relates to how online travel companies remit taxes to the city.
