Realcomp II Ltd., the largest multiple listing service in Michigan, is preparing for a legal battle with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission over an MLS policy that blocks some property listings from display on public Web sites such as Realtor.com and an MLS-owned home-search site.

The National Association of Realtors earlier this year announced 14 separate government investigations that focused on MLS policies relating to restrictions on the display of some property listings.
