The Justice Department’s lawsuit against the National Association of Realtors filed Thursday is the latest in an antitrust attack that’s taking place at multiple levels. The basic fundamentals of the industry are being questioned for alleged anti-competitive practices.

The Justice Department’s concerns started with its investigation of NAR’s policies for Internet listings two years ago.
