MLSNI responds to DOJ investigations

Listing service turns over 'hundreds of thousands' of documents

Multiple Listing Service of Northern Illinois has turned over hundreds of thousands of documents for a U.S. Department of Justice investigation that relates to limited-service real estate listings, and MLSNI has also responded to a subpoena that is linked to a federal antitrust lawsuit against the National Association of Realtors.

MLSNI, one of the largest MLSs in the country with about 51,000 members, in March received a subpoena from the Department of Justice that relates to ongoing antitrust litigation between the federal agency and the national Realtors trade group.
