The operators of a rental-search Web site are suing the Missouri Real Estate Commission over its insistence that the site shut down for lack of a real estate brokerage license to display online real estate information.

The state’s Attorney General’s Office stated in a court filing that the company’s business activities “constitute the practice of a real estate broker … and/or as a real estate salesperson” under state law and seeks to dismiss the complaint.

Similar lawsuits by other companies have opposed similar regulations in California and New Hampshire.
